[Story] PRINCESS DRIANNA Chapter 1

Published

on

I was eight. For my entire life I had lived in the lush splendors of Iae Wiltur- the royal palace of my ancestors. As the only child of the King and Queen of Danubae, I was groomed to become sovereign ruler of the kingdom someday. This was unusual to the surrounding kingdoms. I was girl; therefore I was not to be raised as a ruler but raised as the wife of a ruler.
But my parents- my mother especially- would not hear of such a thing. I was their first born and had a right to the throne no matter was sex I was. So as I grew I was trained in all the arts becoming a strong and powerful ruler.
I studied the basics- reading and writing- in several different languages including all the forms of Elfish and Dwarfish native to our land. I also learned the history of my world all the way back to the first of my line to step foot on what would become Danubae soil.
I studied military strategy as were my father’s orders and I began to learn to wield a bow and arrow and ride a horse. I was given my own set of bejeweled daggers, which I was taught to use and was rather clumsy with. Later I was to begin with the longsword but at the time the weapon was much larger than I and would’ve been quite impossible for me to handle.
And of course, I learned the social graces becoming a princess. I learned to walk properly, hold myself with poise, dance gracefully. I learned the ins and outs of managing and attending a state ball and how to run a palace smoothly.
But of all my training I loved best the developing of my magic skills. Born to one of the most powerful enchantresses known to our world, I naturally possessed a gift for the Power. My mother worked with me- teaching me spells and tricks- and I loved those precious times with her.
They were the only times I had with her. She shared equal power with my father in the running of the kingdom and so was a very busy woman. I was mostly raised by her close circle of sorceresses and was always at a distance from either of my parents. So I came to regard them with the awe and respect that their subjects did. To me, no one was wiser or stronger than my father and no one was kinder or more beautiful than my mother. They were in complete control of the world around me and I felt safe in that knowledge.
So that day, when I was just barely eight years old and playing in a field with Shane, the son of one of the sorceresses, I never suspected that my world could be so torn apart as it soon would be.
Shane and I were throwing harmless energy balls at one another- a favorite game amongst all children with the Power. I was ruthless in my assault on him because he’d recently teased me about the crescent moon birthmark on my shoulder. But even as ball after ball of glowing blue energy struck him, sending ticklish sensations through his body, he was unfazed.
“Is that the best you can do, Drianna?” he challenged.
I puffed up with fury. He was older than I and his Power much more developed. His energy balls would send such tickling sensations as to make one fall down with a fit of laughter while mine were barely noticeable. But he, along with everyone else in the palace, believed that I as the daughter of Queen Catalonia, should be especially more adept at the Power than anyone my age. I was not.
I couldn’t even shape shift yet and people were beginning to doubt my being powerful at all. Some said I was a late-bloomer and they pressed me to work harder at my craft. But I simply couldn’t advance at the pace expected of me. I was beginning to feel the pressures from those around me and I was growing to resent it.
I mustered up all the Power I could and shot a mighty energy ball which hit Shane square in the chest. He didn’t flinch. But he responded with a ball of equal size and much stronger potency and it struck my back as I tried to run, knocking me to the ground and making me roar with laughter.
My laughter subsided with the fading tickles and Shane appeared over me, his fiery red head blurry in my teary eyes. He extended his hand to me and when I took it he gently lifted me to my feet. I glared at him and brushed myself off.
“I just need time,” I said vehemently. “I’ll get it.”
He smiled. “I know.”
The sound of pounding horse’s hooves turned our attention to the road beside the field. A rider, hunched over his steed, red cape flying behind him in the breeze, blew past us and rounded the corner towards the palace. Shane and I exchanged a look and raced in the direction of home.
When we reached the grand doors of the palace, we paused to catch our breath and let the guards open the ornate doors for our entrance. Quietly we stepped inside into the Great Hall where the banners of each ruler of the Creote Clan hung behind the marble statues of them.
I pressed a finger to my lips and pointed to the throne room. We crept silently down the purple and gold carpet and to the set of golden framed doors. One was slightly ajar and Shane pulled it open wide enough for the both of us to slip inside. Immediately we ducked behind a statue and watched the small crowd of people at the head of the room.
My mother and father sat on their thrones, surrounded on each side by their council members. The rider knelt before them on one knee.
“Rise,” my mother commanded.
“Your majesties,” the rider regarded them reverently as he stood to face them. “I have urgent news from the Court of Otaire, King Oghma and Queen Olivia- sovereign rulers of our neighbor, Groithia.” He drew a scroll from the folds of his cloak and unrolling it, read, “As the light of our life hath been put out, so shall we to your own flame. On this day, your countryman hath slain the Crown Prince Antony Omag Otaire.”
The council members’ faces were all aghast. My mother and father’s remained stoic, though I could see in my mother’s blue eyes, the slightest glisten of tears.
“As we have been wronged, so shall we wrong you. Your heir, along with your throne and all the land that accompanies it shall be ours by force.”
My mother found my father’s hand as the council became abuzz with furied chatter and the rider replaced the scroll in his cloak. I watched as she met father’s eyes and one word escaped her lips, “War.”
The palace was in chaos. Servants rushed about, wringing their hands as they shakily performed the tasks assigned them. More guards were stationed at every door and window and they held their weapons at the ready. Knights clambered noisily through the corridors towards father’s war room and sorceresses rushed in and out of mother’s chambers.
It seemed that Shane and I had been forgotten in the madness. We were taken to the playroom and left alone. No one visited or checked up on us but the guards were stationed outside the door.
“I’m frightened,” I said to Shane as I pulled my knees to my chest and rocked back and forth in the window seat.
“Don’t be, Drianna.” He settled beside me and put his arm around my shoulders. “Your father and mother will manage everything. They’ll keep you safe. Nothing bad will happen to you.”
“But what if something bad happens to them?”
Shane looked thoughtful. “Then I’ll protect you.”
I wondered what exactly he thought he could do. Tossing measly energy balls at the enemy wouldn’t win a war. Ever since I could remember, Shane had watched out for me.
Aliqua, his mother and my head nursemaid, told me that once when I was seven months old, I’d been set on the grass in the courtyard while everyone was preparing a picnic. I was a curious baby, as she told it, and I spotted a bee buzzing around the flowers beside me. With my uncoordinated fingers I swatted at the bee, trying to catch it. It landed on a flower and just as I was about to touch its stinger, two-year-old Shane pulled me away from the insect, saving me from the painful experience of being stung.
Since that day he’d been my shadow and bodyguard. Whatever scrapes we got into in our games I came through unharmed, sometimes at his expense. But this was one time that Shane couldn’t watch out for me. He was ten years old, far from a man and far from being the sorcerer he would be. His reassurances did nothing to settle my growing fear. But I was grateful for the sentiment.
“Do you want to play a game?” I shook my head. “Do you want me to read a book to you?”
“No.”
“Well then what do you want to do?”
“I want to see my mother.”
“You can’t do that. The guards won’t let us.”
“Well we just won’t go past them.” I leapt from the window seat and bounded over to the far nursery wall. I stared thoughtfully at it and its intricately carved wood. By running my fingers over the leafy pattern, I found the button I was looking for and pressed, sending a small portion of the wall swinging open.
“Drianna…” Shane warned as I ducked through the passage.
“I’m going with or without you,” I called over my shoulder. “Are you coming?”
He was behind me in an instant and together we picked our way along the dark passageway. It seemed forever before we reached the door which would lead to the torch-lighted hall. When I felt it’s weathered wood beneath my fingers I exhaled a sigh of relief. The next part would be easier.
The hall was narrow and we had to dodge the flaming torches that lined its walls. Shane’s hand found mine and pulled me behind him to lead me through the corridor.
“Watch out for rats,” he whispered.
I shuddered. “Don’t talk about rats.”
He chuckled. “Don’t worry. We’re almost there.”
Almost as soon as the words were out of his mouth the door swung open and we were inside my mother’s chambers. A crowd of faces all turned to us and silence fell over the room. I spotted Aliqua amongst the sorceresses and cringed inwardly at the look of displeasure on her face.
Then my mother’s voice came to my ears. “Drianna, Shane, what in God’s name are you two doing?”
We looked up at her sheepishly. She was tall and intimidating when angry. Her two blue eyes stared down her long, pointed nose at us and her pink lips pulled into a frown.
“I’m sorry, mother. I wanted to see you.”
“See me? About what?”
I fumbled for the words but came up hopelessly blank. So I shrugged my shoulders and concentrated on digging my toe into the thick carpeting. Mother laid her long-fingered hand on my shoulder and I felt that she understood that I was frightened and naturally seeked her out.
“I would like to introduce you to someone.” She led me to the center of the room where a tall man was standing with his arms clasped behind his back. “This is General Akkad. He is a great friend of your father’s and was your grandfather’s most trusted commander. He’s since retired and now lives in Dezla.”
I’d never heard of Dezla. Nor had I ever heard of General Akkad. I peered up at him nervously. He was an imposing figure with long, sturdy legs and a proud chest. Browned skin was taut on his cheeks and his thin lips were surrounded by white stubble that matched his unruly white hair. As he looked at me, they twitched and were suddenly smiling down at me disarmingly. The smile reached his eyes too and that’s where his real kindness shone. It twinkled in the dark orbs and was not bellied, but indeed enhanced by the wrinkles and crows feet around them.
“Your highness,” he said with a bow.
“General Akkad is going to take you to Dezla for a bit. Would you like that?” mother asked.
“Why?”
“It’s not safe for you here.”
“I’ll come back?”
“Of course. When it’s safe.”
I considered this. “When shall I leave?”
“Immediately, I’m afraid.”
Mother had taught me to be brave and to do what was most sensible and necessary at the time. I didn’t want to leave but if it was my mother’s wish, then I would. With a look up at the general, I nodded. “OK.”
The carriage was ready and waiting. A few of my things had been packed into two small trunks and loaded onto the plain black coach. The black horses stamped and neighed impatiently in their harnesses and General Akkad stood waiting by the carriage door. I looked back at the small crowd behind me.
Mother and father were there as was Aliqua, my tutor, my etiquette instructor, and my archery instructor. I embraced each of them and accepted teary kisses from Aliqua. I was as much her child as Shane.
I glanced around. The little redheaded boy was no where to be seen.
“I don’t know where he’s gotten off to,” Aliqua said, knowing my thoughts.
“Tell him I said goodbye?”
“I will.”
“And tell him not to go on any adventures without me.”
Aliqua nodded and stifled a sob. I turned and went to the waiting coach, allowing General Akkad to help me inside.
“Wait! Drianna!” Shane’s voice called to me. His feet pounded against the cobblestones and he arrived breathless at my side. His two green eyes met mine and he gave me a lopsided smile, presenting me with shiny blue horseshoe. “For luck. It’s from Liliquoi’s hoof.”
I smiled. Liliquoi was my favorite of all the horses in the royal stables. I’d been there at her birth and the stableman, Hirok had given her to me. She was the first horse I’d ever riden.
“Thank you, Shane.” I hugged him tightly, clutching the horseshoe to my chest. “I’ll miss you.”
I pulled away and climbed into the carriage. The general slipped in across from me and with the slap of the reigns, the horses began trotting out of the gates. I leaned out the window, waving to my family. Shane ran after the carriage, waving until we were well down the drive.
When the palace was out of sight, disappeared behind a hill, I sank back into my seat. General Akkad watched me with pity in his eyes as mine filled with tears. I was eight years old. And I was leaving the only life I’d ever known and would never know again.

I’m having the best sex of my life with another woman but I’ve just discovered she’s my boyfriend’s mum

Published

on

DEAR DEIDRE:I HAVE had the best sex ever with another woman but I have just discovered she is my boyfriend’s mum.

I am 28. This woman and I met quite by chance a few months ago at a crafting weekend and right from the start there was a spark between us.

We sat together, laughed and joked and I could tell she was also flirting with me. She is a very attractive 45.

If anyone had told me beforehand that I would respond I would have been horrified, but I found myself flirting back.

We arranged to meet for a drink the next week and she came back to mine for a coffee.

We cracked open a bottle of wine and she had too much to be able to drive, so she phoned home to explain and stayed over.

We had sex and it was amazing and I am not even a lesbian.

She is the only woman I have ever been with. Although I know I am straight, I really love being with her.

I didn’t say anything about her to my boyfriend but things have been progressing with him.

He is 26 and we’ve been together for three months. He invited me to a meal with his parents.

I was really looking forward to the evening but imagine my shock and horror when I walked in and was introduced to my lover.

I don’t know how we both managed to act like we’d never met.

In spite of the situation we had a lovely evening and even managed to exchange a few words alone at one point.

She has texted me since and wants to go on meeting, but I keep thinking I should break it off with her.

It’s going well with my boyfriend. I don’t want to break with him and family get-togethers could only ever be awkward.

On the other hand, surely what my boyfriend and his dad do not know cannot hurt them.

DEIDRE SAYS:It would be hard enough if it were just your secret but it is your lover’s, too.

You risk losing your boyfriend, but she is deceiving two of her nearest and dearest – who might hold you to blame.

Secrets and lies will be part of carrying on as you are and it is only a matter of time before one of you gets careless and lets something slip.

So you have to make a choice. Do you – and does your boyfriend’s mum – want to rip up the life you know?

If that’s not what you both want, stop anything more happening between you now.

If you realise you are seriously attracted to women my e-leaflet on Bisexual Issues will help.

Or was sex with the mum better than with your boyfriend simply because she knows what works for a woman?

In that case my e-leaflet Thrilling A Woman In Bed could help you help him to get it right.

She laughed hard again and gave him a mild kiss. 

“Oya, see eh, just make me my favorite food na, by the time the meal is ready, I will be done with the movie “

Ken quickly runs to the kitchen and puts on his apron as he proceeds to make her favourite food, jollof rice and fried plantain. 

Just then there is a knock on the door and Oluchi opens the door to welcome Jude, Ken’s friend. 

They exchange pleasantries and she tells him that Ken is in the kitchen. 

“Kitchen?” he asked with a surprise look on his face.

“What is he doing there? “

“He is planting mango in the kitchen sink, ofcourse he is cooking ” Oluchi said with a smirk on her face. She’s never liked him. 

“So your husband is in the kitchen cooking while you watch TV?”

Just as she was about to reply him, Ken comes out from the kitchen. 

“Ken wassup, I was just asking of you, your wife said you were in the kitchen ” Jude said with a grin on his face. 

“You make it sound like its a bad thing man, how far na” Ken said. 

Jude drags Ken aside 

“But bro, this is wrong by all standards, how can you be cooking while your wife sits with the remote, watching TV? This isn’t normal. This kind of thing cannot happen in my house na, a whole man like you, do you know how many girls used to rush you back in those days”

Ken wipes his hands on the apron as he shakes his head. 

“Jude Jude, why did you come here sef? “

I am always with my wife in the kitchen everyday to help her out, and so you know, I wash my clothes and hers when I have the time and I don’t leave her to do the chores alone. She’s my wife, not my slave “

At this point Jude didn’t know what to say, he just stood there like a dumb lunatic. 

“Look Jude, no two marriages are the same, do what you like but don’t kill Becca in the process. Have you seen your wife lately? She looks like a frustrated mad woman, so thin and almost invisible and you are here , forming man of the house “

Jude brings out his handkerchief and wipes his face. 

“I won’t come to the club today, infact, I won’t come for a while.My wife doesn’t like clubbing that much and since she gave up her modeling career to do business because of me, I need to let go of somethings too. I need to get back to the kitchen, my regards to the boys “

Jude hasten his steps as he walks out of the house. 

“My husband my husband, double ration for you this night, correct man wey sabi. Infact you see eh, de go that kitchen, make I do u rush rush inside”😂😂😂😂😂😂

“Baby make I rush off the gas make we no do rough play burn house “

MORAL OF STORY…. 

💥Leave people alone and stop forcing your policies on them

💥Marriage is a union of happiness, make your home a playground, not a war zone .

💥Share the chores, don’t call her a weaker vessel and still give her all the hard work to do.

May God Almighty give us wisdom and understanding on how to go about our relationships/marriages in Jesus name

EPISODE 21 

 *Daisy’s pov*

Lucas and I were both sitting quietly on my bed the tension between us could double kill a dead person, I mean he just confessed to me! And told me to think about  but what if I don’t want to think about it,  what if I just want us to stay friends cause I don’t see him more than that.. I’m afraid to say I dont have feelings for him..

“uhm so.. What do you want to do now?” he asked 

“I dont know maybe something” I said out of point and he suddenly gave me a look and smiled 

“how about we go to the arcade” he said cheerfully and I rolled my eyes.. 

“the arcade? What! do I look like a boy to you” I said and he shrugged and said “maybe” while I rolled my eyes..  I sighed heavily and laid flat on my bed I looked at the time and it was already going to three.. “I’m feeling kind of tired today I don’t know what’s wrong why me” I said and Lucas turned to me 

“really? Are you sure you’re not sick” he said and I nod.. “no I’m not”

“okay good, do you want to rest, should I leave?” he asked 

“I don’t know? Do you want to leave?” I threw back the question and he kind of flinched 

“w-well I don’t want to leave but I have a feeling you want me to” he said and I stared at his blue eyes and scoffed 

“what are you some mind reader?” I said sarcastically and he laughed, “you can call me that!” he said and I smiled.. What do you know I’m starting to feel better already.. 

“so tomorrow’s school, do you want to study with me?” I asked 

“uhm.. I-i don’t really like to study but sure, I’ll give it a shot” he said and I smiled,

“but.. I’m not even with my books” Lucas said 

“we have assignments in math and don’t worry you can work it out in my jotter and transfer it to your book tomorrow okay!” I said and he grimaced weirdly, I know he hates the idea of studying  but he doesn’t want to leave and I’m dying of boredom.. 

.

“what the hell Lucas you got it all wrong” I half yelled for the third time Lucas started solving our math assignment.. 

“well what do you want me to do  the x went to where it belongs and so did the y I dont get why I’m wrong” he said defensively and I sighed and snatched the pen from his hand and showed him how to solve it.. 

“there, now try it yourself” I said and he nods and grabbed the pen back from my hand boastfully 

“just watch and learn” he said and I rolled my eyes.. 

 He solved it and got It right and I cheered him on and couldn’t stop smiling, we both solved number two and with the same method he got it right and he was more boastful than ever, we were both studying laughing and playing at the same time that I didn’t know when my mom walked in, and started staring at us.. 

I noticed her and she suddenly smiled 

“mom? What are you doing here?” I asked 

“it’s passed five, dinner time is ready” my mom said and I nod 

“oh and L-Luke Lucas.. Yeah would you care to join us for dinner?” my mom asked and I gave her a look while she grinned.. 

“uhm yeah sure” Lucas said with a smile.. “good” my mom said and walked out..

I packed my books and shoved them all inside my bag, 

“you could have just turned down the dinner offer and go home” I tell Lucas 

“why? Your mom seems nice your entire family is nice” Lucas said 

“yeah well, you better warm up your voice cause for you this won’t be a dinner but your life quiz” I said and he rolled his eyes and said “yeah right?” sarcastically. 

I help my mom set the table and all an everyone sat down including my dad, just like I told Lucas when we all started to eat my mum started.. 

“so Lucas.. You go to the same school with my Daisy right?”

I gave my mom a look but she completely ignored me

“yeah, we’re also in the same homeroom actually we’re seat partners and also subject partners” Lucas said and my mom smiled and said “really?”,

While Lucas nod.. 

“wow.. That’s great you must be really smart since you and Daisy take the same courses” my mom said while I rolled my eyes.. 

“yeah speaking of smart.. I’m not sure and compared to Daisy , I’m not quarter to her half” Lucas said And I blushed and my mom smiled 

“I knew right? She takes after me” my mom suddenly said and immediately my dad and I gave her a look.. My dad coughed and breathe out and said “excuse me” and gulped down his glass of milk… 

“anyway Lucas I hope you take care of Daisy for me in school” my mom said with a smile, okay what the hell is that supposed to mean.. Lucas looked at me and we both shared a brief eye contact before he turned back to my mom and nod lightly, ..

.

*BEN’S POV*

okay living alone in this Mansion is way too boring, I’m now alone staring at the big frame picture of me and Daisy on my thigh, Heather’s gone cause she had some things to do urgently, I could have dinner but I wasn’t hungry, I went to my room and had to slam a nail to the wall just to hang up the picture of Daisy and I.. And what could I say, it was beautiful, she is beautiful not just the picture, but Daisy.. .. Maybe I should call her and know how she’s doing, or maybe I should just lay back because I just remembered I don’t have her phone number.. 

I sighed tiredly and was about to lie down when I heard the door open from downstairs.. “Ben I’m home!!” I heard my dad’s voice from down, and I went there

“hey dad, good evening” I said tiredly 

“hey..ben.. You look tired, are you sick, what’s wrong?” he panicked 

“I’m fine, thanks for worrying” I said and he smiled 

“why would I not worry you’re my flesh and blood after all” he said. 

“so.. Dad about school? tomorrow I’ve thought about it and I was wondering if I’d get to go to my old school back” I said and he sighed and plopped back to the couch,.. 

“I heard you went to a public school and to be sincere I don’t really like public schools, so I’m sorry to say but you’re not going back there, you’re in your final year right? So it’s really nice to finish off in private school” he said and my shoulder went soggy.. 

“but I’ve made so many friends and seriously it’s going to be hard to leave that school alone” I said and mean it. 

“I know but what is people going to say about that, that I just found my son and he’s going to a public school what kind of father would they think I am.. Ben I want the best for you really and I’m also sorry to say that now that you’re in this household  this family, you have a reputation and learn to live with that expectations” he said and I sighed, I almost forgot he’s popular, pretty cheesy! Well I don’t want to argue with him or fight or quarrel so I guess I’d just have to agree, 

“fine.. I’ll stick to what you want” I said and he sighed and nods 

“and don’t take it like its what I want am doing this for you too” he said with a short smile.. 

“I know..” I breathed out and he smiled beamed “so have you eaten?” he asked while I shook my head negatively 

“why? There was enough fo–

“I wasn’t hungry” I said cutting him off and he nods, “okay I don’t know if this is the real you or not but you seem awfully quiet and trust quiet boys these days are hard to find and when I was your age I wasn’t this quiet. Being quiet isn’t always the best way to live” my dad said and I looked at him and smiled.. 

“I’m not this quiet but I’m close to it.. But I’m not quiet person, maybe.. I don’t know maybe I’m home sick or something, even though this will be my new home for now I’m going to get use to it.. I mean adaptation.. I’m still going to get used to the smell the hugeness and the loneliness cause since you’ll be off to work everyday it will just be me myself and i in this house” I said and my dad stood up and said, 

“look Ben if you need anything just, anything tell me and I’ll do it for you” he said and walked away, but stopped on his tracks and turned.. 

“oh and if you’re worried about staying home alone, I can get you a job at my company like a part time you’ll be getting paid your pick” he said with a smile 

“well I’m not that smart when it comes to business so.. I’ll pass” I said and he laughed 

“I ain’t talking about business here, well I am but it’s not, since you aren’t that smart seems like you take after your mom” my dad said and I gave him a look that says “that’s-an-insult” he cleared his throat and said “well it’s a job boys your age do so don’t get too worked up I’ll call Heather now to get everything ready with your new school tomorrow”  ..

“okay sure” I said and head to my room, I walked in my room and sighed heavily.. I laid my back on the door and stared the picture of Daisy and I.. And I smiled it’s going to be hard to see her these days.. I really miss her…

(mixed feelings) 

 

EPISODÈ 20

I cleaned the unknown tears on my face and stood up, maybe we’ve been to close that’s why I miss him so much already, I climbed on my bed and the sleep I couldn’t get finally came.. 

.

   BEN’S POV

 My dad and I sat down at the back of his car, while the driver drove us to our new home, I was supposed to use my car but he didn’t let me he said someone’s going to bring it to the ‘mansion’ later the thought of living in a mansion is quite welcoming,but the idea of being alone is not in my vocabulary.. 

I stayed quiet in the car since that’s me for anyone  I don’t talk too much if there’s nothing to talk about.. 

Daisy..

The sound of her name in my head just sent shivers to my body, the look on her face while I was leaving didn’t seem very nice, it was like she wants me to leave she didn’t even hold any emotion on her face, I know she’s not even going to miss me a bit,  and look at me here missing her like crazy, if only she knew I feel about her.. 

 The driver pulled over in front of a big house and we all walked out of the car  “welcome home son” my dad said happily and he give me a smile while I gave him a brief smile too.. 

We walked up to the gate and he typed in some numbers in like a pass code machine or something and the door opened, I breathe in and out trying to get Daisy out of my head, I’m just feeling down.. 

As we walked in the Mansion there was a huge swimming pool at the right side, we moved to the door and he opened it by just placing his right palm on a scanning system which was laying flat on the door and the door opened 

“pretty soon you’ll also have access to the whole house like me” my dad said with a smile 

“cool” I said and my dad smiled.. He took me upstairs and he showed me my room, “so this is your room, just get everything ready, get unpacked and after that help your self out with the food in the kitchen, I have to go now I have some business to attend to I’ll be back soon I’ll send my secretary here, to keep you company” he said and I shrugged and then nod.. 

“okay see you soon, I feel guilty for leaving you actually, or maybe I should just call off the meeting i have?” he asked while I shook my head negatively.. 

“it’s okay” I tell him and he nods, gave me one more smile and walked away.. 

I opened the door to my room and I was amazed by it’s neatness and beauty, I walked up to the clean and well arranged wide bed and dropped my belongings on top of it.. I started to unpack and neatly arranged my clothes in the closet and my shoes at the bottom of the closet, and before I knew it I was done there wasn’t anything to unpack actually  it’s only just my clothes.. 

 I sat down on the bed and sighed, the house was quiet  way too quiet and it’s kind of creepy, I touched my forehead and sighed, I looked at the time and it was 8:43am.. I went downstairs to get something to eat from the kitchen and I lost my way three times, this is so fucking huge it’s going to take me sixty years to get use to it.. 

I finally found my way to the kitchen and wow, it was one of a kind.. I mistook the oven for the fridge and laugh at my mistakes.. I found the frigde and it was loaded with different kinds of food, but mostly vegetables ..i saw a plate of ice-cream and I grabbed it.. I mean who wouldn’t choose ice-cream over vegetables.. 

 I plopped down on the couch in the huge living room and decided to watch TV, but silly me I mistook the TV for a mirror and I didn’t laugh at my mistake this time because even though it was only me in the house it really embarrassed me cause that was dumb..

 I turned the TV and just switched to a channel and start digging in my ice-cream, I got a few brain freeze and well it was worth it.. The door clicked opened and a middle aged woman walked in with a smile, she must have access to this house since she just barged in.. As she walks close to me the sound of her heels were the only thing that was echoing in the entire mansion… 

“hi. ” she said with a smile 

“sup” I said without looking at her but at my ice-cream 

“you must be Benjamin, I’m Heather your father secretary and best friend and I’ve heard a lot about you” she said and smiled smarty, you know the way smart peoples smile.. Like Daisy

“nice to meet you too Heather, just so you know I prefer to be called Ben” I said and she nods 

“okay Ben, your father told me to come here, and show you round the house, that wouldn’t be a problem right?” she asked 

“no.  I’m bored anyway so let’s get on with it” I said and stood up.. 

.

DAISY’S POV 

 I woke up and headed to my bathroom and took the longest bath ever.. That I almost got wrinkles on my fingers. Immediately I got out of the bathroom and got dressed I received a call from Lucas.. 

“hey Lucas good morning” I greeted as cheerful as I could 

“good morning?? It’s two in the afternoon” Lucas said and I glance at the wall clock and gasped, I must have slept a lot.. 

“ah sorry I didn’t realise that I slept for too long” I said 

“oh it’s okay and are you okay you don’t sound to good” he said 

“don’t worry I’m fine, I’m just… Well I haven’t eaten that’s why!” I said and sat down on my bed 

“okay remember you promised to hang out with me today  so are you still on board with it?” he asked. “uhm yeah.. Sure” I said 

“okay.. But still are you sure you’re okay?” he asked 

“Lucas.. I’m fine.. Don’t worry about me too much okay?” I said into the phone with a small smile 

“how can I not worry about you? When you’re Daisy” he said.. What is that supposed to mean anyway 

“okay.. Well what time should we meet?” I asked 

“uhm since I’m not busy now let’s meet at exactly 2:15pm maybe we can go to the movies” he said 

“err.. I’m not really into movies now” I said with a sigh 

“okay well how about I come over to your place?” he said 

“well suit yourself” I said and he replied with “got it” we hang up and I dropped my phone and head downstairs to eat breakfast.. Or lunch.  Well it would be brunch actually.. 

I met my mom talking quietly in the living room and that was way too awkward they don’t even talk to each other? What moved them?? I ignored their conversation and head to the kitchen  .since my mom’s at home I know the kitchen won’t be empty,.. She made homemade chicken soup and salad.. And I couldn’t hesitate to dig in, after eating and getting satisfied, I walked out of the kitchen and was about to go upstairs when the door bell suddenly ring and my mom and I shared a look before I went to get it.. 

Just who I guessed it was Lucas?? 

 His smile was bright and his blue eyes were reflecting to the sun, making him look cute.. 

“hey” he said 

“hi..come in” I said and he walked in..

he saw saw my parents and greeted them politely and they also replied politely and my mom gave me a look that says “who’s this?” 

And her gave her a reply 

“uhm.. This is my friend Lucas, from school” I said and my mom nods and was about to say something when I grabbed lucas by the hand and said “let’s go to my room” .  . .

“wow your room is..–

“small?” I interrupted and he Chuckled “I was gonna say too girly but small works too” he smiled 

“what do I need a wide room for anyway  I just need a closet and a bed that’s all” I said and sat down on my bed and he sat down beside me.. 

“what about Ben?” he asked

“well he’s gone” I said 

“gone?”

“well it’s a long story” I said and he gave me a pretty awkward look.. “Ben’s gone to meet his dad, turns out were not related after all” I said rapidly and he nods slowly.. 

“well Daisy,before it’s too late, I’ve been wanting to tell you this for a long time” Lucas said and I looked at him slowly and asked “what is it?” ..

“Daisy for a long time now.. I’ve had a crush on you  a monster crush.. And I’ve come to realise I like you, so very very very much, and I would love it if you’d be my girl friend” he said and my heart skipped a bit.. No one and I mean no one has ever confessed to me before so this is what it feels like  I’m frozen, I dont even know what to say.. 

“I.. I.. 

I stammer not finding words to say.. 

“don’t worry you don’t have to say anything I’ll give you time to think about it”  he said but still I was frozen.. 

.

Ben’s pov. 

“and lastly this is your dad’s room,now that I’ve showed you the entire mansion what would you like to do next” Heather asked and I shrugged and said “anything?” 

“you know for a teenager, you’re really boring,” Heather said and I rolled my eyes… “thanks that means a lot” I said sarcastically and she scoffed  .

“well if you need anything or want anything or want to do something just tell me and I’ll be in the living room” she said with a smile.. 

“ah.. Well I really want to do something” I said and she turned and said “what is it” I brought out my phone and went to my gallery and choose the picture me and Daisy snapped when her dad bought me a car… 

“can I print this picture out?” I asked Heather as she gazed at the picture 

“uhm.. Yeah sure, who is she if I may ask? Is she your girlfriend?” Heather asked 

“she would have really hate the sound of that word girlfriend  but still just keep it that way, that she’s my girlfriend” I said with a smirk and Heather gave me a confused look.. 

“well.. Okay sure I’ll send this to people who would print this out” Heather said and I smiled 

“and.. Make sure they enlarge it and frame it and also I want it in my room on my wall above my bed” I said with a smile and she nods.. 

Oh Daisy, I wonder how she’s doing now???!!!

EPISODÈ 19 

“well still it’s nice that you get to meet your dad” I said and he smiled and said “thanks”

“well so I’m gonna be in my room if you need anything, just tell me” I said and I walked inside my room before he could say another word..  I moved closer to my bed and sat down gently, why the hell am I feeling this way.. 

I laid down on my bed and stared at my plain grey ceiling, 

If Ben moves out from here would he charge school too, or would he even come visit us, or would he even.. Ugh why am I thinking about this.. 

My phone started ringing and when I looked at the caller it was Lucas 

“hi” I said slowly into the phone 

“hey Daisy did you get home safely?” he asked and I smiled 

“I’m not a baby Lucas, your house isn’t that far from mine it’s just one street apart” I said and I could hear him chuckle 

“yeah, just to make this a little bit not awkward just answer me” he said 

“well yes I am actually lying on my bed” I said and he sighed 

“see it wasn’t that hard.. So do you maybe want to hang out tomorrow?” he asked 

Tomorrow! Sunday? Am I doing anything tomorrow?

“uh.. Well sure, we could hang out” I said, no matter how occupied I am, I still hang out with Lucas whenever he wants to.. 

“okay well thanks, see you tomorrow then” he said and I replied with an “okay bye” and we both hang up.. I sighed and turned to the other side of my bed.. Why am I feeling so down.. 

I closed my eyes and suddenly there was a knock on my door, I lazily stood up and walked up to my door and opened it and Ben was standing there.. 

“hey.. Uhm.. So I just ordered a pizza and I’m watching a movie and I was wondering if you’d like to join me,.. You know for the last five or six hours that we have left..you know, before I leave” he said with a grin and I nod.. 

“yeah sure why not” I said and he smiled, I closed my door and head downstairs with him.. “so Daisy about the kiss” Oh no, don’t remind me ben

“I’m sorry.. I was just well I don’t want to lie. ..well I-i I’m really sorry can you just forget about that” he asked and I nod “of course I knew you were just joking around I knew it was a mistake so no hard feelings” I said and he smiled and suddenly looked away.. 

I’d be glad to forget the kiss, but how can I when it was the most awkward thing ever …

“so what movie are you watching anyway?” I asked as we both walked to the couch and he as he sat down.  “rise of zombie mutants” he said with a smile 

“and I’m going to bed” I replied and was about to make a U turn while he stopped me and laughed 

“I was just joking, I’m watching Twilight Saga he said and I sighed and sat down on the couch too.. 

“good, but if it turns out that it’s a stupid zombie movie, I won’t be the only one who’s going to have nightmares” I said threateningly and he laughed.. 

“but why aren’t you complaining about Twilight, what’s the difference between vampires and zombies?” he asked 

“there is way more like ten thousand differences and the main one is vampires are cute, while zombies well they’re dead people who just have the ability to walk and eat human, so that gives you the ten thousand differences” I said 

“well to me both of them are just the same, vampires are dead too” he said and I sighed 

“vampires are dead but that’s the point that made them charming, while zombies are disfigured you can find their legs stuck to their face, so beat it Ben, and also Twilight is a romantic Vampire story, and who would want to watch a romantic zombie movie anyway” I said and rolled my eyes 

“I would love to watch that” he said with a smile.. 

“eww Ben, you’re more disgusting than I thought” I said and he laughed.. 

We both stayed quiet and shot him a look and said 

“what are you waiting for, turn on the TV” 

“uhm.. Actually I was waiting for the pizza, I thought you are too” he said and I shook my head negatively.. 

“oh well sometimes our mind doesn’t work together” he grinned 

“are you dumb? Our minds aren’t supposed to work together” I said and he nods. 

“you know for a smart girl, you’re kind of dumb, some people minds actually work together” he said and I gave him a look while he  smiled and nod… We heard the door bell and he stood up and got the door and it was the pizza delivery guy, Ben took our pizza and paid and then while we eat we watched Twilight.. 

.

I woke up and found myself lying on my bed, I turned slowly and turned on my bedside lamp, I stood up and glance at the time and it was 11:01pm , I must have fallen asleep while watching twilight with Ben, 

But wait if I was on the couch with him and fell asleep, maybe he was the one who carried me here ..to my room!!! And on my bed!!…oh goodness.. 

 Since I was thirsty I walked out of my room and head to the kitchen to get a glass of water and met my mom eating, I think the remaining pizza slices Ben and I left ..

“hey mom” I said lowly and grabbed a glass cup and filled it with water.. 

“hey sweetie, how did your day go” she asked 

“okay” I said gulped down my water 

“so I heard Ben saw.. Well I didn’t actually heard, Ben told me himself, how he met his dad, that must have been a wonderful moment  but he is so lucky to be the son of Jerry Byers” my mom said 

“Jerry who?” I asked 

“Jerry Byers, you wouldn’t know him he’s famous around here I heard people talking about him, everyday at work and it’s true, that man is perfect in everything he does” my mom said and touched her chest in an emotional way 

“well mom  your mistake is that you should have married him before dad.. That would have made things a lot easier” I said teasingly and my mom smiled and rolled her eyes.. “look honey, your dad may have had or still having any affair with any woman claiming he loves her but let me tell you one thing, we are the people he loves most, he can’t survive a day without us, he loves us more than anything we’re his world so just give him some time to come out of his phase,” my mom and took the glass Cup from my hand and filled it with water 

“well whatever I’m going to bed, goodnight” I say and kissed my mom cheeked 

“nighty-night sweety” she said as I walked out of the kitchen  ..

 I went back to my room and fall right on my bed.. And before I knew it I fell asleep.. 

*

 I woke up the next morning by the sound of voices coming from downstairs, my stomach grumbled and throat went stiff and I quickly rushed to my bathroom and puked in my toilet.. Not a nice morning I just vomited last night pizza, great!.. The morning was cold and I was feeling cold too.. I grabbed a huge thick sweater from my closet and wore it on top my pajamas I laid back on my bed and tried to fall asleep but it was no use , the morning coldness and the noise from downstairs all just making me not being able to fall asleep.. 

 I stood up and walked to my door , I opened it and walked to the stairs, from the stairs I stared at the people in the living room, it was my mom, dad Ben and a man about my dad’s age I think but he looks younger and looks so much like Ben.. At first Ben looked like my dad the first time he came here but that’s just a combination from my imagination, cause now Ben is the exact replica of his father.. Ben and the man who I assume is Jerry stood up and Jerry shook my dad hand and my mom’s, Ben looked up and saw me and he excused himself from the grownups and came to me.. 

“hey good morning” he said with a smile 

“good morning to you too” I said 

“you’re up early” he said 

“yeah I couldn’t sleep it’s kind of cold” I said and he nods 

“well this is it.. I’m finally going I’m going home even though it wouldn’t be the same without your parents and especially you, at least i have someone I can dad, thanks Daisy for everything” he said with a serious look on his face.. 

Is he trying to get me to cry or something because if he is it’s already working 

“uhm no.. It’s nothing.  What are friends for” I said and cleared my throat, wait, are we even friends  cause we ain’t siblings anymore I don’t even know what to call “us”

“so you want me to introduce you to my dad?” he asked 

“no it’s okay you don’t need to maybe next time” I say and he nods.. 

“okay then I’ll be going then take care, but before I leave won’t I receive a hug or something” he smiled, while I just stared at him 

“cause that’s what they do in mov–

I cut him off immediately by hugging me and he hugged me back and we both stayed like that for like four seconds before disengaging, I waved him goodbye as he walked down the stairs and he waved back too.. I went back to my room and slammed the door so hard that I’m pretty sure everyone heard it.. 

Dang it! 

Why does this feel so weird and awkward and why do I feel even more cold 

It’s not like he’s dying or something and why the hell am I in tears!.
