(I love you)

 

 

 

I was stunned on reading those three letters. Does that mean the three friends want to have me as wive.

 

I do not even think I’m ready to be somebody’s wive now. I wanna live a simple life devoid of problems .

 

I sunk to the bed thinking of where to start my life when my phone suddenly rang. Oh! It’s the beast.

 

“Hi”

 

“Hello , Loveth. Have you read my letter?”

 

“Sure ”

 

“What did you say? Will you come back to my house?”

 

“To live like a slave for how many months again or for how many years?”

 

“Loveth,I’m so sorry for behaving so cruel to you. I know I’ve behaved like a beast…but I’m a changed somebody now , please come home ”

 

“Home? It’s a two months contract , please forget about it ”

 

 

 

“Please ‘ He said but I hung up.

 

What’s wrong with him? You do not value me for the two months I spent with you. You treated me like I wasn’t a human and now you want me to go to that same house.

 

Over my dead body.

Following morning. Around 12PM.

 

I dressed my best and walked out of the hotel. John had booked an appointment with me and I have conceded.

 

I took a cab to where we are to meet. It’s a beautiful restaurant.

 

 

He was glad to see me and stood for me to sit.

 

I was honored and said ” thanks”

 

“Welcome dear , I was scared or maybe nervous when I called to request from you if you will be available to see me today. You can’t imagine how glad I was when you concurred”

 

“How have you being?”

 

“Fine , you?”

 

“Fine ” He replied and ordered for food.

 

“Erm…I must say that you suddenly look prettier, ao beautiful and adoring ” He said.

 

“Thanks ”

 

“I believed you have read my letter , what do you say about it?”

 

“Well, I’m not interested in being in any relationship for now ”

 

“Oh!” He exhaled. ” I won’t rush you actually but I wanna ask, can you come and live with me , in the newly house I will be buying soon?”

 

“Oh no! Never. I can’t live under any man as I am”

 

“Dear , not everyone is like the beast , just try me ”

 

“No,I’m sorry”

 

He nodded and we began to eat.

 

“I guess I should just let it out that I love you” He said not looking at my face.

 

 

 

I didn’t reply instead I continued eating.

 

We heard laughter at of two men behind us and on turning to have a glimpse of who they were; it turns out to be Tucker and James.
