? Chapter Eleven ?
An air hostess walked into the first class and bowed her head.
“What should I get you please?” She asked.
“Anything is fine by me” Cora said. The hostess stared at Asher, waiting for his reply. Even Cora was waiting.
“Don’t you have a menu where I can choose from. I can’t decide on my own” he said.
“He’ll take the same thing” Cora quickly said. The hostess bowed again and left. Asher shot Cora a hard glare.
“How can you say that? What if I can’t eat what you eat?” He asked.
Cora rolled her eyes and leaned back on the chair. She didn’t want to argue with Asher now.
When he saw that Cora wasn’t talking to him, he leaned back on the chair also.
“Jeez” he murmured.
Suddenly, the hostess walked in with other hostess with a lot of meal. They placed it in front of their table and left.
Asher swallowed hard on seeing the food. He picked the bottle of wine and opened it first.
“Oh great, it’s alcohol” he said. Cora still didn’t say a word. She just started eating like she hasn’t eaten for ages.
He saw that Cora didn’t answer him again so he started eating.
He poured the wine into the two glasses and pushed one to Cora.
“Thanks” she said and grabbed the wine, sipping from it.
They ate again in silence without talking to each other.
After eating for fifteen minutes, they sat quietly.
The hostess walked in and took the empty plates away.
“What would you like to have for dessert?”
“We’ll have that later. Thanks” Cora said again. She left. Asher stomach was filled. He overate the food.
“Argh! My stomach hurts” he complained.
Cora stood up and walked herself to another seat faraway from him. There are about thirty chairs in the first class lounge and he booked everything.
Asher watched as Cora walked far away from him and sat close to a window, staring out of the plane.
“What’s up with her? So boring” he rolled his eyes.
Hazel was on her way out of the house. She was looking everywhere for Jack.
“Where the f*ck is he?” She murmured and brought out her phone. She started calling him.
“Hey baby” he said. She turned and saw him walking out of an office. She disconnected the call and walked towards him.
“Baby, I need to go out. I need a car” she said.
Jack stared at her from head to toe and shook his head.
“What the f*ck are you wearing Hazel? Come on, put on something better” he said.
“Why? I have the right to wear whatever I want whenever I want” she said and folded her arms.
“But not wherever you are. You need to change, if my mom catches you like this, you may have to leave the house” Jack said.
“She won’t even dare” Hazel grinned her teeth.
“I love your courage young lady, but my son’s right” they both turned and saw Mrs Brooks walking towards them.
“Mom? It’s not what you think. She’s just…” Jack tried to plead on behalf of Hazel.
“So, what should I think?” She asked.
“Whatever Jack, I’m leaving” Hazel said and catwalked pass Mrs Brooks.
She stared at the type of dress she was putting on again and shook her head.
“I don’t want to see her anywhere near this mansion again” she said and left.
“No, mom. Please! I’ll talk to her! Mom!” Jack went after his mother.
Few hours later, they landed safely.
They left the airport and went to the hotel.
Thelma was with Cora and Asher while Hudson went to get the keys to their rooms.
That was when they heard Hudson’s voice.
“How can you tell me that bullsh!t?!!” He yelled.
“Excuse me” Asher said and walked towards Hudson.
“Thelma? Find out what’s going on” Cora said. Thelma nodded and left. Cora stood with everyone’s luggage.
“What’s happening?” Asher asked. The receptionist saw Asher and adjusted her hair, licking her lips seductively.
“Why don’t you ask this annoying creature?!” Hudson asked.
“What happened?” He turned to the receptionist.
“Hi sir” she said in a low tone.
“Uh.. answer my question now, you can crush on me later”
“Oh yeah, you booked two presidential room and two other rooms. Well, I’m sorry that one of the presidential room that you booked was given to someone else”
“So, where does Cora sleeps?” Asher asked.
“Or you mean, where do you sleep?” Thelma asked, she gathered all courage to ask that question.
“I don’t care where she sleeps but I’m staying in that room that’s left”
“What’s going on?” Cora walked towards them, leaving everyone’s luggage behind. Hudson quickly ran to get them.
“Your room was booked to someone else”
“I really apologise. He’s a minister that’s why I was asked to give the room to him” she apologized.
“What happened to the policy of first come first serve, huh? Why do you have to give her room to someone else?” Asher yelled. He had to act like he cared, whereas he didn’t care a bit.
“I’m sorry” she said again.
“It’s fine. Do you have any other room? I can stay in one of those” Cora asked.
“A moment please” she said and checked. She shook her head and stared at Cora.
“The whole rooms have been occupied. It’s Christmas period, that’s why” she said.
“Then, we’ll have to share the room” Cora said and turned to Thelma.
“You know I can’t share a room. I sleep naked” she said, even before Cora asked.
“Now I see the reason why you don’t like sleepovers” Hudson smirked.
“What about you Hudson?” She asked.
“You can’t possibly share a room with me, can you? You are welcome to” he smirked, staring at Cora.
“You can stay with me” Asher said.
Cora sighed. She couldn’t say no, she just turned to stare and Asher and nodded.
She turned to the receptionist again.
“Whenever there’s a free room, let us know” she said and left. Hudson waited behind to take the keys which was in form of a card. They head into the elevator and left to their rooms.
Asher and Cora were in the presidential suite. Cora quickly arranged her clothes into one of the wardrobe.
Asher scoffed and started taking off his shirt.
“Why did you do that?” She asked, not sparing him a glance.
“You don’t need to stuff your dress into the wardrobe, you’ll be leaving soon” he said.
“I know. At least, I have to” she said and closed the wardrobe. She turned and stared at Asher. She saw him bare chested.
“Really?” She furrowed her eyebrows.
“What?” He asked, frowning.
“Do you have to take off your shirt here? What’s the bathroom for?” She asked.
“Why are you acting like you haven’t seen me bare chested before? If not me, you are a model. You would have seen a lot of hot guys without shirt”
“You disgust me Asher” she said and walked away.
“Asher? I haven’t heard my name from your lips for a long time” he said, staring at him.
She stopped and turned to stare at him.
“It’s nothing. I’ll be taking a shower first” he said and walked into the bathroom.
“So annoying” she scoffed and went to the bed. She laid down, staring at the ceiling for some minutes.
Hazel got into the bar, looking round for her friend. She sighted her from distance and ran to her.
“Hazel!!!” They both stood up and squealed happily.
“I missed you as f*ck!” Sunny said.
“I missed you more cupcake. How have you been? Look at your hair, jeez” Hazel said and sat beside Sunny, touching her hair.
“Well, I’m good. I just came back from a shoot and I’m so exhausted” she sighed.
“I’m glad that I have to see you today” Hazel said and signalled the bar attendant to get some drinks. Sunny quickly grabbed Hazel hand and shot her mouth wide open.
“What in the actual f*ck is this? Are you engaged?” Sunny asked.
Hazel quickly withdraw her hand and hid her ring.
“Well, no. I mean, yes. I’m not sure Sunny”
Sunny furrowed her eyebrows, staring at Hazel. She was giving her a crazy look.
“There’s something you’re not telling me huh?”
“What? I’m not hiding anything from you” Hazel said, scratching her jaw.
“Tell me Hazel, who are you engaged with?”
“Fine, I’ll tell you. Promise me you won’t tell anyone” she said.
“I cross my heart, I won’t” Sunny said. Hazel exhaled deeply.
“I’m engaged to the heir to Brooks company” she said. Hazel sprung up suddenly and yelled…
“Shhh, relax girl. People are watching” she said and pulled her down. Sunny was still shocked.
“I know right, I just have to live my life even if it’s over for me”
“It’s crazy that you are engaged to my enemy’s brother”
“What? You mean, Cora?”
“Of course, I hate that b!tch” Sunny groaned.
“She’s nice, I guess”
“But what if he finds out about your secret?” Sunny asked.
“He won’t. I just hope so” Hazel said, staring into the thin air.
“I’m sorry that you had to get kicked out of the industry”
“It’s okay. As long as I’m with a rich man, I don’t give a f*ck” she replied and grabbed her glass.
“Cheers to you, Mrs Hazel Brooks” Sunny raised her glass.
“Silly you!” She replied and they laughed.
