💋 Chapter Eighteen💋
Hazel and Jack arrived at the restaurant. They alighted from the car and matched into the building.
Jack saw Jason waving at him from distance. They walked to him and they sat down.
“Where’s Jay?” He asked.
“Oh, he had an important meeting this morning. So he had to leave. He asked me to apologise on his behalf” Jason replied.
“Oh, here’s Hazel” he said.
“Hi” she waved at him.
“Finally, I’ve met the boss’s fiancee. Jay would have loved to see you. He said he…”
“It’s okay. Let’s just eat” he cut him off.
Xander didn’t like the way Cora was on her phone. He just wanted to have some private time with her.
“Are you going to be on your phone all day?” He asked. Cora raised her head and stared at him.
“Why?” She asked.
“Well, you don’t have time to talk to me. Are you shy out here because people are staring at us? We could go to my room, you know?”
“I’m fine here, I’ll just keep my phone” she said and kept it in her purse. Something fell off. Xander quickly stared at it and saw it was a pepper spray.
He shot his eyes wide open and stood up.
“Excuse me for some seconds” he said and left. As he stood up, Thelma and Cora could see each other. She saw as her friend was eating. She shook her head and lowered her gaze.
Xander got out of the restaurant and grab his phone.
“Just cancel everything. You can keep the money, you guys should just leave” he said.
“But sir, we are done with the decoration. She’s gonna love it”
“I don’t think she will. She has a pepper spray can, what if she use it on me? If I can’t get her today, I will some other time” he said and disconnected the call. He cleared his throat and head back inside.
After some hours of talking and eating, it was time to head back.
“Well, till tomorrow” Xander said to Cora before entering the car.
“Sure” she said quickly and head into the car. She knew Xander would try to touch her if she remain one more second with him. She closed the door ane they drove off.
“Good night Cora” Thelma waved at her as she stepped out of the elevator. Cora exhaled deeply. She can’t believe that she was going to meet Asher again.
“Argh!” She groaned and brought out her key. She was hearing some noise in the room. She slide in her key and the door beeped.
She pulled the handle and entered into the room. She saw Asher on the couch with some ladies. Some were dancing while some were carcassing his body. Their hands were in his trouser. He was just there, enjoying himself. It was evident that they were drunk.
Cora just walked pass them and went into the room. She closed the door She threw her on the bed.
“Oh, I hate you Asher” she murmured. She sat up and tried calling her brother again. He still didn’t pick up.
“I’ll have to call mom tomorrow” she murmured. She went into the bathroom and had a warm bath. She slipped into her night gown. It was quite short and revealing but she wasn’t concerned about it.
The music stopped and the sitting room was silent. Cora stared at the door, she was waiting to see Asher.
Suddenly, the door threw open as drunk Asher stepped in.
He stopped and stared at Cora from head to toe.
“Baby, you are looking so hot” he said.
Cora shook her head and grabbed a pillow. She was heading to the couch but Asher was walking towards her. She stopped and faced him.
“Stop it and go to bed” she said. Asher paused, staring at her.
“Why? I want to sleep with you today” he said and laid on the couch. Cora turned and head to the bed. Asher stood up and jumped on the bed again.
Cora knew it would be hard for her to sleep in this room. She wanted to call Thelma to come pick her from this room.
Asher snatched her phone and threw it on the couch.
“Asher, are you drunk?!” She yelled.
“Argh f*ck, you are really drunk” she murmured.
She decided to go easy on him.
“Lay on the bed Asher, you are drunk” she said.
“No, I don’t want to. I’m not drunk” he said. Cora was so tired and she needs to sleep. She has a shoot tomorrow.
Asher walked towards her and yawned tirelessly.
“Come Cora” he said in a low tone.
Cora didn’t like the way he was coming close to her. She was moving back till she got to her make up table. She leaned on it. Luckily, her hand was on her pepper spray. She opened it and pointed it at him.
“Go to sleep or I’ll make you” she said.
Asher’s lips curved into a smile.
“Uh uh, make me sleep baby” he said.
“Your call” she said and pushed it. It splashed on his face but he didn’t feel anything. She tried it again but he didn’t feel anything.
Then she remembered what Thelma said to her.
“….what if it doesn’t work the third time?”
“Oh f*ck! What happened to my pepper spray?” She asked.
“Oh, I swapped it” he said. Cora raised her head and stared at him, giving him a questioning look.
“What?” She asked.
“So, it’s no longer pepper spray. It’s now water spray” he said.
“F*ck you Asher, get away from me” she said and pushed him hard but instead, he pulled her closer to himself.
“Look at me Cora, I told you. I’d do whatever I want with you. It’s day two, the final day is tomorrow” he said.
“What the f*ck are you talking about?” Cora asked.
“Me, you on the bed. Is that clear enough for you to understand?” He asked.
“Listen to me Asher, nothing is going to happen between us. Okay? So just quit dreaming already” she said.
“We’ll see about that when it’s tomorrow. Just watch and see” he said.
“I don’t give a d*mn. Nothing is gonna happen!”
He let go of her arm, still staring at her.
“How about we make a bet. If I get to f*ck you, you get married to me my own way. But, it I don’t… You have to tell me whatever you want and I’ll do it. Asher doesn’t go back on his words”
“I’d try my best not to let you touch me. Because I don’t want to end up with a dimwit like you. D*ckhead!” She said and shoved him aside. She turned again and threw her pepper, I mean, water spray at him.
Asher stared at her as she walked to the couch. He was having a slight headache. He was really drunk but he knew what he was doing. He stepped into the bathroom.
Jack and Hazel were walking into the house when they bumped into Mrs Brooks.
“Oh mom” he said.
“Hello aunt” Hazel said and adjusted her hair.
“How are you doing?” She asked her son. She didn’t even reply Hazel’s greeting.
“I’m great mom. How was your test?” He asked.
“Good” she said and walked pass them.
“See, your mom doesn’t like me” Hazel said and stormed into the house. Jack went after her.
“Stop thinking about the fact that she hates you and just try to impress her”
“How else would impress her? I’ve changed my dressing, what else should I change for her to like me?” She asked as they walked up the stairs.
“Why not serve her breakfast tomorrow? She would love it. You know, breakfast in bed. Specially made by you” he said. Hazel stopped and stared at him.
“Fine, I’ll do it” she said and went into the room.
Cora woke up quite late. She sat up and rubbed her eyes with the back of her hand. She saw Asher on the bed. He was sipping coffee from a cup. He was already dressed.
“Good morning baby, it’s the day we’ve both been waiting for” he said.
“Don’t talk to me Asher. Stay away from me. Don’t let me call the cops on you” she said and marched to the bathroom. She came back few minutes later in a towel and saw Asher still sitting on the bed.
“Leave Asher, I want to dress” she said. Asher stared at her and smirked.
“I’m going nowhere” he said.
“Just leave for some minutes, please!” She said.
Asher stood up. For some seconds, she thought he was going to leave. But no, he stopped and walked towards her.
Cora held her towel tight to her chest and moved away from him.
“Just leave Asher” she said again, angrily.
“Why should I?” He asked, touching the hem of her towel. She was starting to feel uneasy, even if he hasn’t touched her yet. Cora beats his hands off her towel.
“I should leave instead” she said, wanting to head to the wardrobe but he stopped her. He pinned her to the wall.
“What’s today?” He asked.
“Why asking me? Get away from me” she said, pushing him.
“Don’t think I like you Cora, I just find you attractive. Don’t have any hope that I’ll fall in love with you”
“So, why are you telling me this?” She asked.
“I’m just telling you incase I won’t have the time to tell you in the time after we’ve had s*x” he said and winked at her.
“Stop it Asher, we aren’t gonna end up together. Don’t hope too much” she said and pushed him away.
Now, what’s gonna happen between Cora and Asher? Huh? Who’s gonna win?
