Married to Mr. Right Episode 12


I woke up the next morning and had a cold shower.
last night was a wild one and I’m glad it’s over.
I slipped into a pair of leather pants and a white top. then I rolled my hair into a messy bun. I walked out from the bedroom and went straight to the kitchen.
After thinking of the perfect breakfast. I settled for tuna casserole.
I quickly prepared breakfast and set up the table.
I served breakfast and sat down to eat mine.
“Why is he not here? he’s never late for breakfast” I thought to myself and shrugged.
I pushed the thoughts of Brian aside and sat down on the couch. I went through a, magazine I saw on the table to pass time.
20 minutes
30 minutes
An hour???
I glanced at my watch for the umpteenth time. No sight of Brian. where could he have gone.
I stood up and walked to his bedroom.
I hesitated to knock but I finally knocked after standing there for close to ten minutes practising a dumb ninja skill if in case Brian would attack which is completely insane.
I kept on knocking but there was no response.
“Brian” I call slightly opening up the door and taking a peek before walking inside.
His bed was neatly dressed like he never slept on it.
The wardrobe and everything was where it should be. did an angel visit Brian last night? he’s not the type to clean or Quick question? Did he sleep at home last night? I really don’t know cause after giving him a full lecture, I didn’t care whether he slept here or not.
What if he went to work early today?
I slapped myself mentally
I really shouldn’t be bothered if he sleeps in or not. it’s his life. too bad it’s been wasted in this manner.
I sighed and left the room gently closing the door.
I proceeded to the dinning area to clean up since he wasn’t here to eat his meal when I heard a knock on the door followed by an opening.
“Hi penny” I called and rushed to meet her.
I’ve missed her
“Ciara. how are you”
“I’m good. come in” I moved aside so she could enter and trailed after her.
“What’s cooking cause I am starved” she said trying to mimic a British accent which sounded funny.
“Is this yours cause I’m about to munch on it” she said causing me to laugh.
“it’s Brian’s but you can have it. he’s not at home” I say before taking a step into the kitchen
“Oh he’s gone to work already?” she asked
I shrugged “I don’t know. I woke up and didn’t see him.”
“You had a fight?” she asked knowingly
“Maybe. maybe not. just told him what he wouldn’t like to hear. I guess” I added
“so he’s mad?”
“Kinda. not really sure. I didn’t see his face to confirm if he was”
“what happened Ciara” she said giving me a quizzical look
“His parents wants us to have kids. I mean doesn’t that sound absurd to you?” I said placing my hands on my hips with widened eyes.
“So that’s the problem?”
“That’s half of it. I gave him a chance to look at the mirror but he didn’t like what he saw. I told him who he really was and why he’s so stuck like an helpless child” I say and threw the rag on the counter.
“Ciara you shouldn’t have done that”
“There’s a lot of things he shouldn’t have done too like marrying me. now look, they want kids and you don’t expect me to make out with Brian, he’s so not my type” I say and walk to the living room. i sat down and fixed my eyes on the ceiling.
“I’m really messed up penny” I say bowing my head as the thoughts were flooding through my head.
Will I ever enjoy my marriage with Brian.
when will this nightmare come to an end.
“You and Brian have something in the future and I know it. only time will tell what fate has in store for both of you” she said before walking away to the kitchen area.
Someone speak English please
my life is being ruined and they keep telling me it’ll be fine when clearly it’s not.
I rested my head and closed my eyes to rethink.

***FAST_FOWARD***
He opened the door and walked in with his brief case.
it was 7:00pm at night and I didn’t care to ask why he’s so late.
His eyes landed on me but he quickly pretended like he didn’t see me.
Am I invincible?
“Brian about what i said last night—” I trailed off but he only walked past me into his room slamming his door shut.
i almost jumped out of my body. I’ve never seen him like this.
I was already becoming scared.
He didn’t come for like 30 minutes and when he did, his eyes were bloodshot.
I guess he has been working or drinking.
cause Brian doesn’t smoke. I would bet my life on that.
“are you hungry” I ask but no response “should I get you some aspirin?” I added but nothing.
He only stared at me before throwing a paper at me. more like a memo
“That’s where we’re
going for our honeymoon so get packed by tomorrow” he tells me, he wasn’t in his right mood so I don’t want to upset him further
“T-Tomorrow? isn’t that too early?”
“we’re taking Penny. mom’s order” he, say completely ignoring my question
“Brian we can’t just leave. what happened to next week. you said you have a, lot of things to take care of”
“I just took care of them today so we don’t have any reason to stay. it’s a house outside of town in Hawaii.” he, said turning to leave
“Brian please” I beg
“Don’t worry, we won’t touch each other. I’ll stay as far as I can away from you. I can never get the likes of Ciara Smith so it’s pointless if I try” he growled.
I can’t believe he remembers my last name.
“You’re getting it wrong Brian” I say. he’s making me feel bad. I’m starting to regret everything I said to him
“Get ready Ciara.”
was all he said before leaving me there all alone
What have I done, I hope I haven’t unleashed a monster instead of a human.
.
All through the night, I couldn’t sleep,
Brian has been on my mind. Hope I did the right thing.
I’m not used to seeing him like this.
I quickly packed my things inside a bag.
I was confused of what to do at such short notice.
I heard noises and bottles from my room.
I walked out to see who it was. only to find Janelle and Brian in the bar. I guess he called her.
“I wish I could go with you” she whined taking a lock of hair in her hand and twirling it.
“I wish you could too but I don’t want mom to find out. how about you come visit” he tells her and she smiles.
I hid in a corner looking at them
I knew that Brian would never change but why does it hurt?
maybe it’s because he has somehow kissed me.
don’t be affected Ciara. don’t get attached. I mentally slapped myself.
“I’ll definitely come visit bad boy” she teased kissing him hungrily.
Brian caught me and I quickly hid myself.
“Let’s go in Janelle” he tells her and she stood up and followed him.
They caught me when I tried to go inside my room.
“Have you been spying on us?” Janelle ask but I didn’t respond
“Are you done packing” he ask
I nod “Almost done”
“Good. I can only get the likes of Janelle cause she’s not as boring as you are and I think I love it that way” he said resuming the kiss
“I know. that’s cause she’s a cheap w---e. she sells herself for any price but can you actually get married to her Brian. you wouldn’t, you couldn’t. I’ll assume you’re in your bad mood Brian so I’ll let you cool off with Janelle” I say and open my door
“Have fun. it never lasts anyway.” I added before shutting the door on their amused and slightly confused faces.
I heaved and returned to what I was doing
After we’re back from the honeymoon, I’ll put my plan into action so that Brian Would finally divorce me so I can leave this marriage for good.

To be continued
