Married to Mr. Right Episode 11
we pulled away from the kiss and that’s when I realized what I was doing.
I Kissed Brian again?
what is wrong with me? why couldn’t I resist?
But d--n I guess I kinda liked it. I put my clothes in order. I couldn’t even look at him.
We were both avoiding eye contact.
I sighed and wiped my lips with my hands.
He adjusted his tie and tried to walk away.
“Where do you think you’re going?” I ask, feeling a lot irritated by what happened
“To finish dinner. that’s what we came here for, right?” he asked, sarcasm down his throat.
He just kissed me and pretended as if nothing happened.
I mean I wasn’t expecting to act like something happened but still
“You just kissed me Brian, forcefully” I said pointing at him
“And what part of it didn’t you enjoy?” he asked feeling a bit amused. I know he was mocking me.
“Enjoy? seriously? are you for real” I asked him but he laughed it off
Am I for real? I mentally slapped myself.
you were not at fault Ciara. You didn’t kiss him, he did.
“I mean normally, you would yell or hit me but you didn’t. so who’s to blame” he asked folding his arms across his chest.
“and besides, I only did that to prove a, point. you can’t get me upset without my permission” he said and winked at me.
I felt like strangling the life out of him. he’s an a-----e and a big one at that.
He turned around and tried walking away again.
“Curse you Brian. curse you and everything that has, to do with you” I yelled at out loud but he didn’t seem affected, he just turned around and started walking up to me. I tried moving back till I hit the wall. he pulled his face down to mine as if he was gonna kiss me again.
“Curse everything that has, to do with me? including you right? cause you are literally my wife so curse you too” he smiled and walked away.
“I hate him, I hate him, I hate him so much.” I said to myself and angrily walked out to join the others.
“Are you feeling better now?” his mom asked and he threw me a look before taking another bite into his mouth.
“I’m… I’m fine” I said taking my seat next to Brian.
He dished some salad into my plate, trying to act like an ideal husband which he clearly was not, I gave him a deadly stare but he smiled and winked at me.
“I can manage” I say
“Yes I know that Mrs Salter but let me help” he said and I sneered.
“Awwn, they look so cute together” his mom cooed making me barf.
He pulled close to me and whispered into my ear “don’t forget, we’re acting like a couple tonight so don’t try something silly” he tells me and takes a forkful of salad, placing it on my lip.
“I’m not eating that.” I said in almost a whisper.
“eat or I’ll kiss you again in front of mom and dad” he tells me and I knew that he meant it.
“You won’t dare” I threatened
“I will cause you actually did that to me last night. you screamed because I refused to take a f-----g burger off your hand” he said and the whole scenario flashed before my eyes making me a whole lot embarrassed
“So are you eating or should I kiss you?” he added
I reluctantly opened my mouth and he put the salad into my mouth.
“now that’s a good girl” he said and I chewed on the salad. I just pray this night ends pretty soon or I’m gonna loose it.
His parents were staring at us as if they were watching a movie.
I gave a fake smile and they returned it with a cheerful one.
“so where would love to go for your honeymoon?” his dad asked us, I didn’t bother to reply so I focused on my food. he agreed to their plans so he should face whatever that comes with it alone.
“I was thinking Hawaii. they have a good beach over there.” His dad suggested
“How about Vegas or LA? if you love sight seeing”
“We’ll think of where we would like to go and tell you all about it,” Brian said picking on his food.
“You have to leave like this week or next. I want you out of here as soon as possible so you both could make kids” she said with pleading eyes
“Please mom. maybe next cause I have to finalize everything work related before I leave. so you won’t have a hard time running the company when I’m gone” he said and after a while they nodded yes.
“well played” I tell him and he glared at me.
We talked about other stuff but Brian’s mom was bent on us having kids, it’s not like you can just stuff them in a, sack and bring them to her. it would’ve been a, lot easier.
She’s one hell of a, kid lover.
Brian was right all along.
After dinner, Brian’s mom served us desert.
Brian went upstairs to talk to his dad and I was stuck with his mom.
We had a really long conversation which was mostly about Brian, when he was a kid, his favourite meal, blah blah blah. I really didn’t care to know but it’s not like I could tell her so I just nodded and smiled when necessary.
Next she brought a photo album showing their lives even since they got married till the birth of Brian.
“This was the time Brian won the tennis tournament at a country Club back in Hong Kong” she said to me.
“I never knew Brian plays tennis”
“he’s really great at it.”
“Wow. the pictures are amazing” I comment
“Yeah” she said, her smile turning into a frown
“What’s wrong mom?” I ask, a little confused about her sudden mood swing.
“Well I really wish we had a picture of you in the album” she said feeling really down
“it’s really OK mom. I don’t mind” I say but she takes my hand in hers making me face her. I was totally lost. what could be wrong now?
“Ciara” she trailed off looking at me “promise me that you’re going to make a baby with Brian?”
I swallowed hard.
“But mom.. ”
“I know Brian May not be the perfect husband. he’s my son so believe me I know. But no guy in his right state of mind won’t be happy especially when he has a child to call his. the baby could be the bridge between your marriage. It may bring Brian closer to you and no man won’t be able to love the mother of his child. You should really try to make the most out of your honeymoon. if you wait for Brian to make a move, you’re gonna wait forever. he acts all tough now but he’s really shy” she says and we both giggle.
“Alright Mom. I will try” I lied.
I don’t have any intention to make out with Brian.
Not in his life. or mine, or never mind.
“Thanks Ciara” she said hugging me.
wait until Brian breaks the news about how we got married.
“Can we go now!?” he asked and we pulled away from the hug.
I stood up and they walked us to the door.
“Bye mom. thanks for dinner” I called as he opened the door for me.
“Take care of her”
“will do” he says and hopped in.
he started the engine and we drove home in silence. no one speaking to the other.
I opened the door and walked inside, Brian trailed after me. I was about to pull the door knob when he said
“Ciara we need to talk”
I turned around and saw him standing there, hands akimbo
“The honeymoon” he said through gritted teeth
“Oh you mean the honeymoon you totally agreed on?” I ask, sarcasm down my throat.
“Yes and we’re going”
“Geez Brian. I told you before that I don’t want to go on a f-----g honeymoon.”
“If we don’t go, mom and dad will think we played them don’t you see?” he said with a serious face
“no I don’t see cause if we go, you’re actually giving your parents something to believe on. to hold on to” I say and pushed the door open
I looked at him and he looked somewhat confused.
“they’ll think that we love each other and made out so they’ll be expecting kids. and I don’t want to have kids with a guy like you” I say “just tell Janelle. I’m sure she won’t mind”
“you think I’m bad don’t you Ciara” he asked
“yes you are. you don’t know the value of relationship. you don’t believe in love. you think it’s just a game. you have no desire whatsoever to have a committed relationship. you love everything in skirts. and do you know the worse part?” I ask walking up to him. “No girl in her right state of mind would ever love you. cause you will never be able to love them back. have you asked yourself the reason why you think your parents don’t love you? well it’s because you don’t deserve it. believe me, you’re wasted” I said. I didn’t know I could say all those things to Brian.
His eyes were bloodshot. red and fierce but I wasn’t scared.
I turned to go but stopped immediately like I’ve forgotten something
“By the way, you’ll only be able to get the likes of Janelle and not me Brian and if you don’t think I’m right then prove me wrong” I said before making my way inside my room. .
Somehow I don’t know why I’m still stuck in this useless marriage.
And now kids?
Not gonna work. we would go to the honeymoon alright but Brian would have any close contact with me cause I won’t let it happen…
I got on my bed and tried to have a shut eye. I didn’t bother to shower cause I was d--n tired so I just threw the idea away. I didn’t bother about Brian. he’s not a baby so I’m sure he can handle himself.
I closed my eyes and drifted to sleep…
To be. Continued
