Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 13
Sasha arrived at Ross’ house but he wasn’t there. She called him and there was no response.
She waited for a while and just as she was about to leave, he pulled up in his drive way and got off the car with a lady. They were both giggling as they walked towards his door.
Sasha tried her best to keep her cool and not assume the worse.
“Hey Ross”, she said, getting off her car and approaching them.
“Hey Sasha”, he said, walking towards her and he hugged her.
“Uhh, Rose this is Sasha, my girlfriend and Sasha this is Rose, my sister”, he said and Sasha stretched out her hand for a handshake but Rose ignored it.
“Is this the same girlfriend that was extremely rude to mum and the one that her dad broke mum’s heart?” Rose asked.
“Uhmm. Kinda”, Ross said and she glared at Sasha and just walked in.
Sasha wanted to put her on blast but she tried her best to ignore it.
“Sasha, she’s not always like that I think she’s just upset and….”
“It’s fine. I understand”, Sasha said, forcing a smile.
“Do you want to come in?”
“Oh no. I don’t think she’ll be happy with my presence”.
“Oh no. This is my house and you’re the woman in my life and the woman of this house”.
“No Ross. I think it’s best I go”.
“You think if I was the one in her shoes, she’d care? “ Ross asked, laughing and she laughed too.
“I actually came to apologize for the way I ran off yesterday”.
“It’s fine. I shouldn’t have asked you about your sex life and if you want to be celibate, I get that”, he said to her.
“You’re so sweet to me Ross and I really appreciate it”, she said, smiling.
“That’s my specialty”, he said, smirking.
“So, do you want to come in? I still have the food which you abandoned yesterday”, he said.
“You sure it’s a good idea. I’m really trying to keep my cool and if your sister comes at me again, I might not be able to be calm”.
“I doubt she’ll do that. Just come in”.
“Okay”, she said, locking her car and she went in with him.
When they walked in, Sasha followed Ross to the kitchen and Rose was there, sorting out the groceries.
“Can I help?” Sasha asked her.
“No, I’m good”.
“Okay”, Sasha said and she sat at the kitchen’s dining table.
“I’ll be right back. Let me quickly go and change my outfit”, he said and he left the kitchen.
The kitchen was as silent as the grave yard when he left. Sasha had her head buried in her phone and Rose was busy with what she was doing.
Sasha realized how awkward it was and decided to break the ice.
“Uhmm, I’m sorry for being disrespectful to your mum. It wasn’t about her. I was just upset at my dad that day”, Sasha said to her and she ignored her.
“And I’m sorry that your mum got her heart broken. I honestly had nothing to do with that. If there’s anyone to put your anger on, it should be my dad”, she said and Rose glared at her.
“I really don’t know what you’re doing with my brother but no one is going to accept you into the family. My mum doesn’t like you and I don’t like you. So I think it’s best you walk out of this now before you get your own heart broken”.
“Hmm. Well, it’s really nice to hear that. But I’m not going anywhere. Ross likes me and I like him, so that’s all that matters”.
“You think I’ve not heard of you and how you break the hearts of every man you come close to. I even heard that you stressed out one of your exes and he ended up in his grave”, She said to her and Sasha got off the dining chair.
“What did you just say to me?” She asked as she walked up to her.
“That I don’t want you in my brother’s life. I need him to be alive and not end up dead like your ex”, she said and Sasha slapped her.
Rose was surprised and she threw her hands too and they began to fight.
Ross quickly ran in and separated them.
“What the hell! Why do women always have to be like this?!”
“Tell her to keep her hands to herself!! She slapped me”, Rose exclaimed.
“And I’ll do it again, if you talk to me that way or talk about what you don’t even know”, Sasha yelled.
“You know what, I’m out of here!” Sasha said and walked out.
Ross ran after her and tried to stop her and she pushed him away.
“Get out of my way!”
“Sasha. You don’t have to leave? We can talk it out!”
“No! Your sister accused me of killing my ex!! What kind of human will do that?!”
“What? You have a dead ex?!”
“Is that what you’re focusing on? I just said that your sister accused me of killing him!”
“Yes! You did!” Rose said, walking towards them. “You stressed him out to his grave. Ross you got to let that witch go or she’ll be the death of you”, Rose said and Sasha threw her shoe at her. It landed on Rose’s face and she got hurt.
“Sasha!!” Ross exclaimed and he quickly ran to attend to his sister who was on the floor with a bleeding nose.
Sasha’s quickly went for her shoe and walked away.
She quickly drove to Rachel’s home to pour out to her.
She was on Rachel’s bed, crying as Rachel tried to comfort her by stroking her hair.
“Why do things end badly for me. I was trying with Ross and his sister just came out of no where like the devil and decided to ruin things”.
“I really tried to be calm Rachel. But she came at me so hard and involved Philip in it. Why would someone talk about what they don’t know and now I’m sure Ross sees me as a monster”.
“I’m sure he doesn’t. Anyone in your shoes would have acted out too”.
“Do you think I should call him?” She asked lifting her head off Rachel’s thighs.
“I think you should wait till evening and then you call”, Rachel said to him.
“What if he doesn’t want to speak to me again”?
“I doubt that will happen. But Sasha I think it’s time you see a therapist. You really need it for yourself and for your loved ones”, she said to her.
“I’ve asked Ralph to get me an appointment with one and he’s also going to go with me to be my anchor”.
“That’s great. I’m happy that you’ve decided to do this”.
“Yeah. I need it”.
“Anyway, speaking about Ralph, I think he and Lilian are going out”, Rachel said, smiling.
“For real? Oh my God! Wait how did you figure that out? I just saw him yesterday and he didn’t say anything about it”.
“Alicia told me and trust me, Alicia is always right”, Rachel said.
“Aww, I’m happy for them”, Sasha said, smiling.
“Yeah. Me too”.
They talked for a while till Sasha had to take her leave.
When she got home, her sisters quickly ran to her room in excitement.
“Sash!!” Samantha exclaimed.
“We found him and he’s just the best for mum”, Sally said as she sat on the bed.
“What did you find out?”
“First, he’s so hot”, she said, handing her phone to Sasha.
“Mmm, he’s so fineeeee”, Sasha said as she admired him.
“And he’s rich. Like extremely rich. Like twice of dad’s net worth”.I
“What? What does he do?”
“He’s a business man. He owns an aircraft company and owns a lot of other businesses in the country and outside the country”.
“Wow!! How did mum find such a person?”
“He’s actually her ex. Her college sweetheart”, Samantha said.
“Wow!! That’s amazing. And what happened to his wife?”
“That’s the unfortunate thing. She died of cancer”, Samantha said.
“Ooh poor thing. And the kids?”
“That’s the downside. He’s got like 5”, Sally said, rolling her eyes.
“Mmm, I’m sure we can handle them. How many boys and how many girls and their ages”.
“3 boys, 2 girls. The boy is the first born and I think he’s married or so. The second is also a boy and I think he’s your age mate and the third is also a boy and I think he’s also around your age”, Sally said to her.
“Wait. So the last two are girls?”
“Yeah. And I think they are worse than Sally”, Samantha said.
“Ohh crap!!” Sasha said, facepalming.
“I’m not that bad”, Sally said to them.
“Oh yeah. You’re extremely good. The perfect daughter”, Sasha said, giving a sarcastic smile.
“Whatever, I’m sure we can handle them and make sure they don’t interrupt mum’s happiness”, Sally said to them.
“Yeah. Of course we can”, Samantha said.
“Good work girls. If you don’t mind, I’ll like to be alone now”, she said to them.
“Sure sure”, Samantha said, getting off the bed and they both left.
Sasha was on her bed frustrated. She had called Ross several times but he wasn’t picking up his calls and she sent several text messages to him and he wasn’t replying any.
She was in her bed, getting frustrated and didn’t know what to do.
She called one more time and he picked up.
“Ross, I’m really sorry!” She said to him.
“Sasha I’m sorry but I just want to be on my own for now”.
“Ross. I’m sorry for taking it far. And I’m getting help too”.
“We’ll talk later”, he said and he hanged up.
