Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 9
“Getting married? I thought you said you were taking things slowly and it wasn’t too serious”, Ross said to her and she got out of her car and leaned on it.
“I really like him and he really likes me. So we decided to take it further by getting married”, she said to him.
“Don’t you think you’re moving too fast. You just started dating him not too long ago”.
“Ross, we’re too old to do all that you the millennials do”.
“Hmm. Are you sure you really like him and want to do this?”
“Yes Ross. I’m sorry that this affects whatever you have with Sasha”, she said , placing her hand around him.
“Come to think of it, I don’t think it affects it. We’re not related by blood”, Ross said, smiling.
“I know that but things would be weird and a fight between either the two of you or me and Fred or even me and her mum could make things more difficult and weird and if things go far and you get married and give birth, what would your kids think?”
“Hmm. I’ll talk it out with Sasha and we’ll see where that leaves us”.
“My advice is to get out before it becomes too difficult to do so”, she said to him and he nodded.
“I’ll see you later, mum”, he said, pecking her and he drove off.
Sasha was in her room, waiting for Ross when her mum knocked and walked in.
“Oh my God, you look so beautiful”, she said to her.
“Thank you mum”.
“Is this all for the young fine man waiting downstairs?”
“He’s in? I have to go”.
“Wait, wait. What’s his name and who is he?”
“Mum, I’ll give you all the details later. I have to go now”.
“Alright. It seems I’m next in line since everyone is finally getting their second half”.
“Mum, this is our first date. Don’t start imagining our wedding, you might jinx it”,
“Aww, you don’t want to jinx. What did this man do to my daughter?!”
“I’m leaving now”, she said, getting off her bed.
“Aww, I love how excited you are. At least this will be the one marriage that brings joy to me and not your dad’s annoying wedding”, she said to her and Sasha stopped in her tracks.
“Mum, what did you just say?”
“I’m sorry, I know you said I shouldn’t imagine you and your new man getting….”
“No mum. Not that. I mean what you just said about dad”?
“His wedding? Oh my God you didn’t know?”
“I didn’t know”.
“Just go and when you come back we’ll talk about it”.
“Mum, the man I have a date with is the son of the woman he’s going to wed or whatever it is he’s doing”.
“What? How did that happen?” She asked and Sasha walked to her bad and sat down. She told her mum everything, right from when they met till how Lilian set her up with him.
“Oh wow. This is such a lovely story and I wish for it to end well. Your dad can’t marry her then”.
“Mum, we can’t interfere with his love life”.
“I can. If you truly like this guy and you feel he’s the one. I can do something about your dad and his mum”.
“Mum, I can’t tell if he’s the one yet. We have to date for a longer time for me to be sure of that and I don’t want you to do anything to ruin dad’s happiness. I know he’s not my favorite person right now but I just want him to be finally happy and not be with girls my age”.
“Hmm he came to me yesterday for me to talk him out of the wedding. I think he still wants me back”.
“No mum! I hope you’re not considering it. He cheated on you. Not once but a whole year!! That’s insane and I wouldn’t want you to go back to someone like that”.
“If it’s going to give you a chance with your new man, I will. Besides I still love your dad and that’s why I’ve not been able to move on”.
“No mum. Don’t do anything yet. When I come home, we’ll talk about it. Okay?”
“Sure. Do you think he knows about it?”
“I don’t know. I guess I’ll have to find out”.
“Okay. Enjoy your night and I’m rooting for you”, her mum said and Sasha rushed out.
When she got to the hallway, she saw Ross sitting over there and she was captivated by his looks.
“Hey”, she said, interrupting him from his thoughts.
“Wow”, he said, observing her and he was also captivated by her looks.
“What did I do to deserve such a beauty”, he said, getting on his feet.
“My Queen can you do my the honors of letting me kiss your hands?”
“Sure my king”, she said smiling and she stretched out her hands and he kissed it.
“Let’s go my queen”, he said, holding her hands as he walked her to his car.
“Wow, is that the new Lamborghini truck?” She asked as she got into the car.
“Yeah it is”.
“Are you trying to impress me?” She asked him.
“To impress you, I would have to give you a tour of my house and all my cars”, he said, smirking and he got into the car and drove off.
“Who knew that lawyers made this much?” She said and he laughed.
“I’m not just a lawyer. I own a lot of businesses around. I’m an all round guy who just happens to love law”, he said to her.
“Oh I see”, she said, smiling.
Ross took Sasha to one of the most expensive restaurants outside their city and she was enjoying every bit of it.
“This place is really lovely and their food is amazing!”
“I know, I come here often and I knew you would also love it here”.
“I do. Thank you Ross”.
“Mmm, a Queen is thanking me. I must be doing something right”, he said, wiggling his eye brows and she pushed him.
They talked for a while till Sasha brought up their parent’s wedding.
“So has your mum spoken to you about my dad?” She asked.
“Yeah”, he said and the huge smile on his face turned to a worried face.
“Hmm. So what do we do about it?”
“Hmm. When we talked about it, I told her that it doesn’t affect us since we’re not related by blood”.
“I was thinking the same thing too”.
“Mmm but she told me how weird it was going to be and how our kids might be confused and a whole lot of things”.
“Hmm, I see”.
“What did your dad say about it?”
“I’ve not spoken to him yet just my mum”.
“And what did she say?”
“Nothing really, she was just ready to put a stop to it”.
“Put a stop? Like how?”
“Hmm. I don’t know”, Sasha said, shrugging.
“Don’t lie to me Sasha. Is there something you’re not telling me?”
“If your mum truly wants this, then it doesn’t matter”.
“Are you saying that your dad doesn’t want this?”
“What? I didn’t say that and I’ve not even spoken to him about it”.
“Hmm. So what did your mum mean by putting a stop to it”.
“Fine. She’s thinking of getting back with my dad so that we can have our way”.
“No. That’ll be selfish of us.
Would you want to hurt your dad like that?”
“Oh please it wouldn’t hurt him. He… you know what, let change this conversation”.
“No. He wouldn’t what?”
“Ross I think we should stay out of this and let them figure out their things”.
“No. I want to know. I don’t want my mum getting her heart broken”.
“My dad wanted my mum back and my mum was considering it for our sake”.
“What? And you couldn’t talk her out of it and if he wants her, why is he getting married to my mum. Is my mum his second choice?”
“Ross, I’m honestly not enjoying this conversation anymore”.
“I’m also not enjoying this and what you and your family are planning to do to my mum”.
“Excuse me? What did you just say?”
“You heard me Sasha”.
“How dare you say that to me? When my mum brought it up, I shut it down because I don’t want to hurt your mum or my dad or anyone. And my mum doesn’t even know your mum and if she’s doing anything, it’s for my sake and not to hurt anyone. At least my mum is willing to sat her happiness to be with my dad unlike your mum who is not ready to sacrifice hers! You know what? I’m going home now and would not spend any minute with you and your disrespect!” Sasha said, walking away.
“Sasha said”, Ross said, running after her.
“I’m just so upset and I’m sorry for saying that. I didn’t mean it”, he said to her.
“Just leave me alone Ross”.
“Hmm, let me drop you home atleast”.
“No. I’m good. I can handle myself”.
“Sasha please. Let me just drop you off”.
“Leave me alone Ross! Just leave me!” She said to him and he stood there watching her.
She took out her phone and requested an Uber within few minutes it arrived and she got in and left.
Ann was in bed fast asleep when her phone kept ringing out loud. She opened her eyes and took her phone out. It was Fred.
“Why is he calling me at this time?!” She said to herself and she picked up that call.
“Fred. Why are you calling me at 5 in the morning?”
“What did you tell Victoria?”
“You snake. Don’t act like you don’t know who I’m talking about”.
“Fred. I won’t let you insult me this morning. Who the hell is Victoria?”
“My wife to be and thanks to you she’s not anymore!”
“What are you even talking about?”
“You told her that I still want you?”
“What? I don’t even know her?”
“First you reject me and then you mess up my life. You’re a snake Ann and I don’t want to ever see you or talk to your ever in my life. Enjoy your sad life”, he said and he hanged up.
