Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 32
“What’s she doing here?” Sasha asked angrily.
“Sasha relax. Why are you acting so violent?”
“I called you more than 1001 times and you didn’t pick up and now I’ve seen the reason why you didn’t pick up!”
“Sasha I left a ton of messages for you asking if I could come and pick you up after work but I didn’t get a text back and I felt maybe you were busy”.
“A ton of messages?” She asked and she took her phone out. She went to her text messages and she saw all the texts.
“This just came in like two minutes ago”.
“I sent that long time ago. It’s probably the network”.
“And what about the calls. I called you thousand and one times”.
“You did?” He asked, picking up his phone and he saw it.
“Oops my phone is on silent. I’m sorry”.
“So you put it on silent because she’s here?”
“Sasha. I forgot to take it off silent after my settlement meeting. I’m really sorry”.
“Why is she here?”
“She came to congratulate me on my success”.
“Oh God. My head is really aching, I can’t stand all this. I feel like you’re lying and you’re up to something”, she said, placing her head on her forehead.
“Sasha relax”, he said walking her to the couch and she sat down with her hands on her forehead.
“Let me get you some ice”, he said, walking to his kitchen and Chloe sat there, staring at her.
Hanson got back and placed the ice on her forehead.
“Chloe, I suggest you leave and I’m grateful for everything. I’ll transfer the money to your account”.
“Okay. But is she okay?” Chloe asked.
“She’d be fine”.
“Okay, I’ll see you later”, she said and she left.
“Sasha. What’s making you this way”? he asked as she leaned on him.
“You’re making me so paranoid. Ross said you wouldn’t want anything to do with me after you got the money and now you’re ignoring my calls and you have her in your house after I said I don’t feel comfortable with her around you”.
“Sasha, I’m crazy about you and I will never want to hurt you or make you sad. Ross is just trying to mess with you. The money isn’t going to change a thing. It’s just an added bonus to enable me to be able to take you to your favorite places. And I honestly didn’t see the call. Chloe came here like some few minutes ago and she was just congratulating me and I was also showing my gratitude. That’s all it was. I would stop speaking to her and making you paranoid. I know how that feels and I don’t want you to ever feel that way”, he said to her and she started sobbing.
“I don’t know I just feel some type of way. I’ve been hurt by almost every relationship I’ve gotten into. My first love and real boyfriend, died right in front of me. The other guys I dated after him either lied or cheated and I just can’t stand another heart break. If you are not feeling this. Please be honest with me”.
“Sasha. I’m not any of those guys and I’m really sorry that you experienced the death of someone close to you. I’m not going to lie or cheat or anything of that sort neither am I going to die. I’m here for you and I adore you and I love you”, he said to her and she stared at him.
“You love me?” She asked.
“Oops I said that huh? Yeah I do”.
“When did you realize it?” She asked, brightening up.
“Uhmm, I’ve been feeling that way for sometime now and I wanted to say it at the right time”, he said and she smiled.
“Uhh this is the time that you tell me that you love me too”, he said to her.
“You know I do”.
“No , I don’t”.
“Okay, I love you too”, she said, pecking him on the lip.
“And don’t ever doubt that. I care about you a lot and I love how you make me feel”, he said to her and she smiled.
“What was your first thought when you saw me?” She asked.
“When I saw you acting up in the restaurant, I was like ‘woah what a spoilt brat!’ “
“Hey!!” She said, poking him in the head.
“Yeah and then I saw how frustrated you were and then it hit me that you were probably one of the patients from the clinic. We’ve experienced people like that and so I decided to try to help with my tea. I was really skeptical though because you looked so furious but then I grew extra balls and walked up to you”, he said and she laughed.
“Was I so scary?”
“Yeah. I was a bit terrified and I felt that you were even going to pour the tea on me. But God being so good it didn’t turn out that way. When you relaxed, I was jubilating in my head and from the way you spoke after that I just saw that you were a good person and was just struggling with a lot of things”.
“Yeah I was”.
“When you visited me again, I was like woah, where did I sleep? And then we met at the event where I got fired the first time. When I saw you I was like ‘God what are you doing? It felt like a setup to me and when we spoke, I was thinking so deep into it and was wondering why you were so nice to me but then I remembered my past experience with the rich ladies and I decided to stop thinking so deep and then the food messed up your outfit which was a funny sight to see”, he said, laughing.
“That was really embarrassing for me”.
“Yeah. I could tell with the way you lashed out on me”.
“Sorry about that”.
“It’s fine. And then when Ross, my ex boss said he was meeting with us to introduce himself, I saw you in the conference room and I was like “nah, it can’t be her. This is too much of a coincidence”, then when he introduced you I was like yeah, that’s her and I saw the uncomfortable look on your face and it reminded me of the look you had when you had food all over your body at the event and it got me laughing. Which I guess was so loud that it got Ross furious”, he said, laughing and she laughed too.
“He was so mad and I didn’t even understand. Like I get that it might seem like you were laughing at him but I expected him to calm down when I told him that you were my friend but he was so mad and was still trying to make it a whole big deal”.
“I get him though and I felt bad for doing that but I guess you got me out of the hot waters”.
“Mmm, not really. After that day, Ross had it in for you”.
“I really find that strange though because I wasn’t even that close to you. I mean after seeing you at the hotel I felt that we meeting so much at random places actually meant something but you were dating, so I decided to not push anything and just see what the Lord will do”, he said, laughing. “Things started getting so weird for me because my crush or feelings or whatever for you kept growing and i tried so hard to suppress it because you were rich and in a different world. I told my friends about it and they were like it’s best I keep my distance and I was doing that but then I felt this urge to invite you to church because it didn’t seem like you were close to God and I was like maybe that’s why we keep meeting at random places. Maybe I’m supposed to show the light”, he said, laughing.
“So you ended up using a cooking competition to lure me”, she said to him, snickering.
“Yeah. It was a great opportunity to get you to come and I was so skeptical about you coming but you came and it made me so happy. Talking to you and walking with you made me fall so hard and I really had to keep it in check. And as things kept moving, I realized that you might share the same feelings and then you kissed me and God, I was going so mad but then I didn’t want us to start with lust and all. That’s why I wanted us to take things slow”.
“Aww”, she said, smiling.
“I can see that your headache is gone”, he said to her and she wiggled her brows.
“I actually find it funny how I fell for you. If someone had told me two months ago, that I was going to fall for a chef, I would have laughed so hard. I don’t mean to insult your profession, I really adore it. I’m just saying that Sasha of last two months wouldn’t want anything to do with a chef”.
“Don’t worry, I get you”.
“I think a part of me liked you from the start. I was amazed at how you could make me calm and feel better. I was like you’d be a good friend and I was going to keep you as that. You know as a confidant but then I guess feelings started setting in after the food competition. Seeing you around other girls got to me and I didn’t understand why I was bothered and I guess I waved it off till my friends started teasing me and then I knew that a part of me liked you but I tried to curb it because of how I felt the society would take it. But later I was like screw the society. I’m my own woman and I can like whoever I want and not care about their net worth or their job and all that”.
“Well, I have money now. I mean it’s not too much but I’m sure no one will question that again”, he said and she laughed.
“What are you going to do with the money?” She asked.
“A whole lot. First I think I’ll give my tithe and give some to the needy. I made a promise to God that if this worked out, I would do this first before any other thing”.
“Wow. That’s amazing. I think I’ll join you in the tithe thing and the needy thing too”.
“And what else will you do?”
“I’ll cater for the needs of my family and use the rest to start up my own restaurant”, he said.
“Yes!!! That’s what I was waiting to hear. I have a lot of places in mind”.
“And the real estate agent in you just jumped out”.
“How much are you looking to spend on the restaurant?”
“I don’t know yet. I’ll have to sit down and allocate the money first before anything”.
“Okay. But can we go and take a look at places. I have already pin pointed some places”, she said in excitement.
“Okay okay. But let’s do that tomorrow. Tonight, I want us to celebrate”.
“Okay babe”, she said to him.
“Babe? I like that”, he said, smiling.
“So where are we going to?”
“Mention any place and your wish would be my command”, he said to her and she smiled.
“Uhmm let’s see. Can we go to the movies. It’s been a long time I went there”.
“The movies?!” He said surprised.
“Okay then. Let me dress up and we’ll go”.
“Uhh, I have to change too”.
“Did you bring any outfit?” He asked and she shook her head. “ I had to leave home early and I forgot to take an extra outfit. I have my make up set though”, she said to him and he shook his head.
“Do you mind wearing my outfits? Or should we go to your house to get you something to wear?”
“I love to wear your outfits”, she said, wiggling her brows.
“I don’t know if they’ll fit you or if you’ll like it”.
“Don’t worry. Just a sweatpant and a sweatshirt will do”.
“Are you sure you want to wear that?”
“It’s the movies and it’s late. I’d even feel comfortable in it. And hey you better wear something similar. I can’t have you being all dressed up whiles I look like a gym instructor”, she said and he laughed.
“Okay okay”, he said and he walked into his room and took out an outfit for her.
“I’ve placed it on the bed. You can go in and change and when you’re done, I’ll change too”, he said to her and she went to his bedroom. It was quite small but it was spacious and homey too.
When they were both done dressing up, they left.
Sasha and her siblings were at the porch, receiving fresh air.
“Hello everybody”, Ann said in an Italian accent and everyone turned to face her.
“Mum!!” They all exclaimed and they run to hug her.
“You said you are getting back tomorrow”, Sally said to her as they released their grip of her.
“Yeah but I decided to surprise you!!” She said to them.
“Oh my God. You look so different. I love the hair style”, Sasha said and she ran her fingers through her mum’s hair.
“Thank you”, she said, smiling.
“We missed you so much”, Samantha said to her.
“I missed you too my babies”, she said, hugging them again.
“Where are you luggages?” Sally asked.
“The personal chauffeur is handling it”.
“You’ve got a personal chauffeur?”Sammy asked.
“And a new car”, she said, winking.
“Oh my God!” They exclaimed and they ran to the drive way.
“What?! This just came out like a week ago!” Samantha exclaimed as they admired the car.
“We were present at the launch in Germany and Andre quickly purchased one for me and it got delivered today as soon as we arrived at the airport”.
“Wow! That’s so sweet of him”, Sasha said to her mum.
“I need someone like him in my life. Mum are his sons available. I can date them right?” Sally asked.
“Here she goes”, Sasha said to her.
“It’s not my fault that I want to be in riches than to be in the kitchen with a chef”, Sally said to her.
“Why do you always have to be like this. You always spoil the excitement and everything!” Samantha said to her.
“What? She started it”.
“That’s enough. I didn’t come home to hear you all bickering at each other”, Ann exclaimed.
“Anyway. I got a lot of stuff for you all”, she said to them.
“Aww. Where is it?” Sammy asked.
“I’m sure it’s in my room”, she said and Sally and Sammy ran off.
“These two”, Ann said, shaking her head and Sasha laughed.
“You’re really glowing mum. I’m so happy for you. I’m glad you finally found your Prince Charming”.
“Yeah. I’m grateful to God for that. Speaking of Prince Charming. I heard you’ve got one yourself”.
“Yeah. It’s the chef I told you about”.
“Wow! You two are dating now?”
“Yes”, she said, smiling.
“That’s amazing Sasha. You actually look so happy and you’re glowing too”.
“Thank you. But are you okay with it?”
“Why wouldn’t I be okay?”
“Everyone seems to have a problem with his profession and his net worth”.
“It doesn’t matter Sash. As long as you love him and he loves you. And besides you have money. What will his do for you? You’ve always wanted to be your own woman so I don’t think his status should matter to you”.
“Thank you for that. I appreciate it”, she said, hugging her mum.
“He’s looking to open his own restaurant. We’ve started looking at places”.
“Wow! That’s amazing! Let me know if he needs anything. I’ve got a good taste in interior decor especially for kitchens and restaurants”.
“Yeah. I know that. Our dining room looks like a seven star restaurant”, she said, giggling and her mother laughed.
“I’m happy for you and I can’t wait to hear all the details about your new found love”, she said, wiggling her brows.
“And I can’t wait to hear about your experience with your Prince Charming”, she said as they both walked back into the house.
Sasha and her female friends were at Rachel’s house as they planned her wedding.
“So will you go away with him?” Alicia asked.
“No way! I can’t abandon my company”,
“So is he going to move here?” Lilian asked.
“We’re still talking it out. Adriana plans on staying here to handle their business they have here and he’s also trying to see if it would be best to stay here too”.
“Mmm, I think you should sort that out before the wedding”, Sasha said to her.
“Yeah. We will hopefully”.
“And the bachelorette. Are you all in with the location?” Rachel asked.
“Ralph won’t be okay with me going there”, Lilian said.
“Oh I can speak to him to change his mind”, Alicia said to her.
“No. Stay out of it”.
“Uuhhh, sorry”, she said, throwing her hands in surrender.
“Hanson won’t also be cool with me going there”.
“You all are such party poopers. It’s my bachelorette party. You’re all supposed to sacrifice for me”, Rachel said to them.
“Can’t we just find another better location that doesn’t involve people having sex, drinking and what not”, Sasha said to them.
“Okay Holy Mary. You can sit out if you want to!” Rachel said, angrily.
“So you’re not going to change the location?” Sasha asked.
“This isn’t about you Sasha! You’ve always had everything your way and I’ve been cool with it but this time, it’s my night and I’m not going to let you influence this too”.
“Where’s this coming from? I’m just trying to let you see that a sex club isn’t the best location for a bachelorette”,
“That’s your opinion and I don’t want it. If you don’t want to come, fine!” Rachel said and her and the others were quiet.
“Okay sure. If that’s what you want”.
“Don’t manipulate me. It’s what you want”.
“I can’t be at a sex club. My experience there wasn’t the best. I felt uncomfortable and I wouldn’t put myself in that situation again”.
“Do what suits you”.
“You know what. I’m out of here”, Sasha said and she got up.
“Oh c’mon, don’t leave”, Lilian said to her.
“No, if she wants to go. Allow her. For the first time she can’t control this situation and it’s uncomfortable for her. Allow to her to leave”, Rachel exclaimed and Sasha walked away.
