๐ŸŒž FINALLY OVER AND ๐ŸŒ 
๐ŸŒŸ SAYING GOODBYE๐ŸŒ 

๐Ÿญ EVA ๐Ÿญ

“Aunt Joyce!” I screamed enthusiastically and jumped on my aunt’s body.

“Easy baby girl.” She smiled and twirled me around before putting me down.

“Where have you been all these years aunt Joyce?” I asked curiously and ran my eyes all over her body.

“It’s a long story my dear. But I promise to tell you everything.

But first, let’s go inside.” She retorted.

I giggled happily and led her into my condominium, where I started living in recently.

“Wow! Such a nice place.” She beamed as she looked around my apartment.

“Thanks aunt.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I was coming to America when an unknown person slipped in a cocaine in my bag.

I was searched at the airport and the cocaine was found in my bag.

I was really so surprised and confused.

I don’t do hard drugs or illegal products either.

I was handcuffed and sent to jail.

To cut the long story short, I’ve been in prison for the past six years, for a crime I didn’t commit and no nothing about.

I was released just three months ago and I had to fly down to America as soon as I could.

I’ve been in America for the past one month, searching for you, after I was told your parents passed away.

I had gone to the police station and asked enquiries about you.

And after much interrogation and investigation, I was told of your whereabouts and I didn’t waste any more time in coming to look for you.

I’m sorry it took me so long to come get you.” She said and by the time she was done narrating her ordeal, we were both in tears.

“It’s okay aunt, I perfectly understand you.

And I’m sorry for what you had to pass through.” I cried and hugged her tightly.

“It’s okay Eva and I’m sorry for the death of your parents.

I still haven’t digested the news down very well that my only sister and relative is dead.

May her soul and that of her husband’s own rest in perfect peace.” She said, with tears rolling down her flushed face.

“Amen.”

“I missed you so much aunt.” I said in between my tears.

“And I miss you so much my baby girl.”

.

.

Aunt Joyce is my mom’s younger and only sister.

She’s based in Italy with just a child and no husband.

Her husband died even before her child was a year old.

Aunt Joyce has always been very nice towards I and my parents.

She always had good intentions towards us.

I knew from the very first day I saw her, that she was genuinely good and wasn’t in pretence.

Ever since I was a kid, she bought me gifts from Italy and played with me.

She was like my second mother.

She doth so much on me like she would do to her daughter.

But when I was eleven, she just suddenly stopped visiting.

And since then, we never heard from her.

I thought she was pretty preoccupied with work over there and my parents thought so too.

But little did we know that she was in prison all these years.

I’m glad she’s back now.

At least, I now have a family.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After my examination, my aunt suggested I followed her to Italy to start a new life with her and her daughter, Beverly.

I agreed immediately.

But she asked me to think it through but one thing was sure, she wasn’t gonna stay in America, because she had to return to her daughter whom she left with her late father’s mother.

And I agreed to go with her to Italy.

There are so many memories I wanna leave behind and forget.

After replacing new workers in dad’s companies, i placed dad’s ex PA as the temporary CEO of the companies.

Dad has always trusted and had faith in him.

He’ll be giving me feedbacks in Italy and I would come down once in a while to check how the companies are faring.

And once I clock eighteen, I’ll have full access to all the companies.

Until then, dad’s PA would be in charge.

I can’t believe that, Rex demoted him to an ordinary receptionist with his high qualifications and put in a lazy and dumbass person to be in charge.

I did well by firing all incompetent workers.

.

Ethan wept bitterly when I told him I was gonna be leaving America very soon.

He told me to stay but I refused.

There are some decisions you just have to take.

.

.

Three months later, I and aunt Joyce got ready to leave for Italy.

I was damn so happy!

And at the same time, sad.

______________________

“Eva!” I heard my name from afar.

I stopped walking and turned around as I was about stepping into the airplane.

He ran towards me, breathing heavily.

Seems he ran all the way from inside the airport to come meet me.

“I had to run all the way here from the entrance of the airport down here. I just wanted to say goodbye before you leave.” He breathed out sadly and held my hands.

“I’m sorry Ethan.” I apologized and stared into his glossy eyes filled with unshed tears.

“Don’t feel sorry or apologetical.

But do you really have to leave?” He asked sadly.

“I have to. I have a new life waiting for me in Italy.

I wanna forget that everything that has happened to me wasn’t real.

I just wanna go far away from here.” I muttered.

“But you’re gonna forget about me.” He pouted.

“Never! How can I forget my first love?

The person who changed me without knowing.

You made me talk, you made feel loved and you made me feel emotions I didn’t think I’ll ever feel.

You brought me out of the dark.

And for that, I’m grateful.” I smiled in between my tears.

He nodded and kissed me on my lips and I reciprocated, forgetting we were in the airport and people would probably being watching.

He pulled away from the kiss and hugged me.

“I’ll never forget you Ethan. If destiny permits us to meet again, we’ll definitely meet.” I reassured with a light smile after we pulled away from the kiss.

“I’ll wait for you Eva. I don’t care how many years it will take but I’ll definitely wait.” He replied and kissed my forehead.

“I’ll wait for you too Ethan, no matter how many years it will take me.” I sighed softly.

He nodded his head and gave me a quick kiss on my lips.

“Eva!” My aunt called out.

“I love you.” I smiled with tears filled eyes.

“I love you too.” He smiled too as tears streamed down his cheeks.

We waved at each other as I climbed in the airplane.

We blew each other kisses as the plane took off.

We continued to wave at each other until the plane finally went up into the clouds.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As I leaned on the seat, I thought of my future.

I’m going to Italy to start a new life, to start afresh.

I’m gonna be a changed and different girl in a positive way.

Ethan doesn’t know what he has done for me, but he has done a lot that I could never have imagined.

I’m going to Italy, leaving my horrible past behind.

Ready to become a new person and adapt to new surroundings.

I’m at peace because I know that, I’m finally going to be happy in my new home.

I’m happy because I’m no longer in the dark.

I’m no longer dumb.

And most importantly, I’m no longer lonely.

I look ahead for a better tomorrow.

My name is Eva Connor and this is my story.

๐ŸŒป THE END ๐Ÿต๏ธ

Phew! Finally done and dusted.

Phew! Finally, we’ve come to the end of another mind blowing story.

And why I had said most of you might not like the end is because Eva and Ethan did not end up together because Eva had to leave.

Emma's Revenge Written by Wilfred bright

โš”๏ธโš”๏ธ EMMA’S REVENGE โš”๏ธโš”๏ธ

๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ“ŒShe want’s to revenge…. He wants to arrest her๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ“Œ

Chapter One
๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–
Theme: Revenge in style.

Emma stepped down from her very much expensive McLaren Speedtail, her uncle gifted it to her on her birthday, and he said this exact words to her, “if you’re going to take revenge, then why don’t you do it in style.” He also let her know, that the car would become really handy, when she’s involved in a high speed chase with the police.

She put on her dark sunglasses and stared at the police man infront of her with such displeasure. It’s time to show this fools, how good of an actor you are… She thinks smirking.

“Do you mind telling me, why are refusing me entrance into that house?.” She asked scowling at the police man.

“Ma’am I’m sorry but you can’t come in, we are not allowing anybody in to the house. I’m sure you are citizen of america, which means you should know what is going on.” The police man replied her.

“So are you insinuating that I’m the killer, ans I’m here to kill me Ben. Look, and I don’t care about what is going on, all I want you to do… Is to open the bloody gate for me.” Emma said sternly, glaring holes into the man.

“I’m sorry ma’am, but I can’t let you in.” The man repeated, standing his ground.

“Would you stop apologizing to me and open the damn gate.” She yelled really annoyed, her voice higher than normal.

“Ma’am, please calm down. And don’t make a scene here.” The police man tried to calm her down. If his boss ends up witnessing this, he might end up losing his job.

“I shouldn’t make a scene, is that what you are saying. Okay fine, I will calm down.” She made a show of breathing in and out repeated. Then she takes off jer eyeglass, and looked at the police man with so much discontent. “I am beginning to think, that you don’t know who I am. So I will introduce myself. My name is Sophie Turner, and I’m Mr Ben girlfriend. Ir should I say one of his girlfriend’s. He asked me to come here today, to keep him relaxed, so… Could you let me in, now that you know that.”

The policeman began to wonder why he is so unlucky, to meet a crazed woman on such days. He exhaled heavily, then repeat his usual line, “I’m sorry ma’am, but you can’t go in.”

Emma face palmed her self angrily, “Would you stop apologizing to me. All I want right now from you, is to let me in!” She exclaimed.

“Ma’am, Mr Ben’s life is in danger and we the police are here to safe proctet him and by doing so… we can’t let anyone into the mansion.

“Oh my goodness, this is not happening. Did I ever stop you from doing you job. For f*ck sake Mr Man, why don’t you do your god-damned job and let me in. You can search me if you want, I am unharmed and I don’t have a single weapon with me.” She uttered angrily.

“Ma’am this is an order from above, and I can’t disregard it. Please let me do my job.” The police man was already close to getting down on his knees and beg her to leave. He wasn’t ready to lose his job.

“Oh my gosh, this is so embarrassing. I feel so insulted. Do you know what, I won’t stand here and take this anymore.. I will just have to call me Ben, and have him talk to you.” She huffed, then brought out her phone from her bag and then dialled Mr Ben’s number.

Mr Ben picked on the first ring, “Hello Sophia, where are you? I’ve been waiting for you.” Mr Ben said.

“I am currently standing infront of you gate, and the police men wouldn’t let me in. This is so insulting Ben, I think it would be best if I just turn back around and go back home.”

“No, no. There would be no need for that. I will call them right away, and instructs them to open the gate for you.” Mr Ben said, then hung up.

Emma only had to stand for just a few seconds before, a call came on the police man’s phone. He picked the call, exchange a few words with the caller, and then hung up.

“You’re free to drive in ma’am.” He Said to Emma.

“Next time, I’ll make sure you lose your job, if you ever dare insult me in the way you just did. I’m so sorry ma’am, please forgive me.” The policeman said, even though he knew that, there was absolutely no need for him to apologize, since he did nothing wrong. He was just following protocol.

Emma also knew that the police man, didn’t have a reason to apologize, cause he was never wrong. But of course she had to give them drama, so they won’t suspect her a bit. She wants the police thinking, that she is nothing but a spoilt rich bitch.

She got in her car and then waited for the gates to open before driving into the huge compound.

Once she drove into the compound, she parked her car at the parking lot and then came down. She walked to the mansion, and got inside. A maid informed her thar, Mr bird was currently in his room, waiting for her.

Without wasting much time, Emma walked to Mr Ben’s bedroom. And without knocking, she walked into the room. Mr Ben is a divorcee. His wife had to divorce man due to his cheating lifestyle. And that was why Mr Ben became a really easy target among the list of men she had to kill.

“Here you are, I have missed you so much.” Mr Ben said getting up from the bed, he walked to Emma and wrapped his hands around her, then kissed her on the lips.

Emma felt like vomiting, things she has do for revenge. “I also miss you too my love, I miss you so much.” She said returning his kiss.

“What do you think about, if we hit the bed first and have a little fun.” He said grinning.

Sex sex sex that is the only thing in this man’s head, what a foolish man you are… She thinks.

The idiot thinks that she has been sleeping with him, but what he doesn’t know is that she had particular kind of drugs, that she always have him. Whenever she comes to see him, she would inject the drugs in his water, tea, or anything that has to do with water, that he would drink.

ALSO READ :  IN THE DARK Chapter 9

The drugs would make him really delusional, and makes him see things that aren’t real or true. The drugs would draw him into a world of illusion.

Whenever Mr Ben wakes up the next morning, he would end up thinking that he had the most amazing night ever with Emma, but what he didn’t know was, that it was all an illusion.

“Sure, but why don’t we get you relaxed first. I know that you are going through a lot of emotional rollercoaster right now, and that is why I recommend we drink atleast one glass of wine, and get all relaxed.” She kissed him on the cheeks, then walked to his mini fridge, and takes out a bottle of wine. She also took two wine glasses. Before pouring the wine, she brings out the injection that she had hid in her pant waist band. She empty the injection content on one of the glasses, the one she intended to give to Mr Ben. After that, she filled up the two glasses, held Mr Ben’s own drink in her right hand, and held her own drink in her right.

She hands over the drink to Mr Ben and he wasted no time, in drowning the whole content of the glass. She on the other hand, didn’t drink her wine, instead she excused herself to the toilet.

She stood in the toilet, and then counted up to 5. Once she was done counting, she walked back into the room, and just like she thought, Mr Ben was currently laying on the floor so still… But not dead.

She carried him up and laid him on the bed, happily. What…. what is happening to me. Why can’t I move my legs. What was in that drink you have to me.” Mr Ben asked her horrified, by the present state he’s in. Mr Ben said trying to move his hands and his leg.

“I really didn’t do anything much. Okay… maybe I did, but It wasn’t much really. First of all, I am the killer, the one who wants to take your precious life on the 1st of January. I met you in the club and because of, you are a big time cheater, you ended up carrying me home.” She paused, smiling brightly.

“Breaking news, all the sex we had, were nothing but illusions. I have been giving you drugs that could mess with your mind.” Emma said, clapping her hands excitedly.

“I would also want to you to know, that the medicine I have been giving you to. The drugs, can actually make you go paralyze, in other words immobile.

“I have been giving you the drugs in little dose, so you won’t end up getting paralyzed so quickly. The drugs I poured in your wine and today, I was only to wake up the other drugs, that had woken up.

“So.. this means that you are dead man.” Emma replied him, sitting down on the only couch that is in the room.

” You will pay for this you will…” Mr Williams opened his mouth wide and try talking. He couldn’t anymore he has lost his voice.

“Oops, sorry but I forgot to tell you that the medicine also makes you lose your voice. And so, which means you can shout or do anything. You just have to lay down there and listen to me talk. So I am very sure you must know of a certain Mr and Mrs Davis, the very same couple you connived to kill, all because if they knew a secret they shouldn’t know.” She paused.

“Well… I’m the daughter of those couples, you murdered in cold blood and you will die just the same way you wiped them out of existence.” She smirked at him.

“Well… In the next hour, that medicine would take it’s effect on you. It would start by burning all your intestines, then it would spread like a wild fire through your body and finally, burn your heart. Let’s just say, you will be a dead man in the next one hour. Happy death day, Mr Ben. In your next life, you had better come as a righteous person.” She grinned at him, then picked up her bag, arranged her dress and then left the room.

Emma walked out of the mansion, got into her car and drove out of the compound. She stopped outside the gate, and poked her head out the window of her car, “Next time you insult me again. I will make sure you do not have a job anymore.” She yelled loudly at the police, snickered and then drove off.

“Gosh.. I’m such a good actress.” She said out loud, laughing really hard. At the sane time, pulling of her wig, and the fake face she had on, the lenses and finally the belt. Now, it’s time to plan for her next target.

************

Oscar stared at the car of the lady that just left. His shaked his head, “Just look at her. Because she now sleeps with rich men, she thinks she had made it. You bitch, my job is freaking ten times better than yours.” He yelled really loudly.

“What’s the point of yelling, she already drove off.” His colleague said.

“I know right. I should have given her a piece of my mind, when I had the chance.” He said.

“Oh wow. You are really funny man. Few minutes ago, you were busy begging her and now… You want to give her a piece of your mind. So funny.” His colleague mocks, Oscar frowned.

“I’m a peaceful man, and that was why I begged her. I didn’t just want trouble.” He said scratching the back of his head, a little bit embarrassed.

“Yeah.. peaceful man indeed.”

ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡

Alex knocked on the door of Mr Ben’s room, but no answer. He knocked again and again, but still no answer. He decided to walk into the room, panicked that something must have happened to him.

He rushed into the room with urgency, and calm down a bit, when he saw Mr Ben sleeping peacefully. He was about going out of the room, when he notice that Mr Ben’s face, was a little bit pale. He walked to the side of the bed, and with a beating heart placed his funger, underneath Mr Ben’s nose. He is no longer breathing.

Alex calm his self down, then raised mr ben left hand up, and checked for pulse. He had no pulse!.

“F*ck! Damnit!. She f*cking beat me again. F*ck!.”

Prologue โœจ

Alicia Ray stared at herself in the mirror. Her full body length, displayed in the mirror.

She raised her hands up and touched her face, feeling her face, feeling every single part of it. She couldn’t recognize her face anymore, neither can she recognized her body, she has changed!.

Her face that was once void of any piercing, now has a lot of it. Her face that never held make-up, was now caked in it.

Who is the girl in the mirror?. She asked her self silently. What happened to that cheerful, amazing happy Alicia. What has become of her now?. Why is she so unrecognizable?. She thinks.

She tore the beautiful red gown that she is putting on, into shreds, shouting obscene words at the same time.

She plunged her fingers into her hair, and made a mess of her hair.

She wiped away the make-up on her face, with the back of her palm. She takes out all the nose rings, ear rings, all the rings on her face and throws them to the floor. She was in a hurry to get rid of it, get rid of the unrecognizable girl in the mirror. To everyone out there, she’s a star. A popular figure, but to her, she’s nothing. She’s slowly dying in the inside, why? Because of the fame now eats her up.

She took the water bottle on top of her dresser, and then used it to wash her face. But no matter what she did, that girl she has become just stared back at her.

That girl still wouldn’t leave.

๐ŸŒบ Daniella pov๐ŸŒบ

I was coming out of the class after having some chat with Amy at the cafeteria because she seems to be broken and I didn’t even realize she had feelings for Bryan and it this strong.

I made up some lies when she asks about Martha even though I know she must probably be with Bryan. I don’t know what really happened but Jabson refuse to tell me and that lead to a little fight between us too.

“Isn’t that Martha?” Why is she with John?. Hope it not what I’m thinking, I quickly approach them and gave John a glare before dragging Martha away from him.

“Let go off me Daniella”she said and I kept dragged her till we reach the empty classrooms and I lock the door.

“What the hell is happening”I questioned.
“You should tell me why you bring me here when I was in the middle of an important something”She yelled at me and I was surprised.

“Martha? John is the importance thing you are talking about?”
“Doesn’t it worth it?”
“What have gotten into you”I asks.
“Maybe you should direct that to your friend”She sounded so rude to me.

“My friend aren’t we friends too?”I asks.
“I have a class”She said and I scoff.
“This is the same class you are having now tell me what happening and what were you discussing with John”I asks.

.”And why should I tell you?”she asks me.
“Even if you are Bryan have a little misunderstanding shouldn’t you be soughting it out instead of going to that bastard”I yelled.

“Why do everyone hate him?”
“You really want to know?”I asks.
“There is a party tonight at my house and John will be there come over with Bryan”
“No”she rejected.

“Why?”
“I don’t want to have anything to do with him”she said.
“Why for goodness sake”
“he tried to rape me are you satisfied”she fired at me.

“Rape? I thought you guys are married?”
“Okay fine !! this is the truth we are married but aren’t together because we hate each other guys and yesterday night he tried to rape me when I wanted to treat his wounds”

“What wound?”I asks in surprise.
“He was attacked by an hoodlums last night”she replied and I gasped.
“His he okay”I asks and she shot at me making me hold back my words.

“I hope you understand and stop all this drama because John is only been nice to me”she said.
“John is……”I kept quiet and stare at her for a while.

“Martha are you that blind?”I asks.
“I can see Clearly and you are putting on white”She said and I sigh deeply.
“He loves you and he just doesn’t want to hurt you because of his situation that he doesn’t realize I know a long time ago though”

“What do you mean”
“I think this is right time he need you or you might lose him forever but I still need some investigation I have a feeling John is behind is attack”
“There you go again”She clap her hand together.

“Martha I’m been serious, he need you now but why did he react like that because he already stop_OMG”I gasped.
“What?!”
“I will talk to you later”I ran out of the class and went to search for Bryan and Jabson and luckily I found them at the school backyard.

“Hey guys”I greeted but the both of them just snub me but I ignore that.
“I think I know what really happened”I said and they both exchange glance before looking at me.

“Know what? Your addiction occurred because you got injected with large dose of Vulgar last night”I said and Bryan punch Jabson in the face making me gasped.

“You f**king tell her”he roared and this is my first time I ever see Bryan mad at Jabson.
“No”he spat out blood.
“Omg”I squat and help Jabson up but he shove me away.

“He didn’t tell me, I found out myself okay”I said and he just wipe his hand.
“I’m serious Bryand I think you weren’t actually attacked yesterday but instead you were drugged and it only two person I know can do that.

“My father or John”he said and I nod.
“Sorry dude”he apologized to Jabson and he just ignore him and take care of his broken lips.

“Who even tell you I was attacked?”He asks.
“Matha”I replied honestly and he slum on the bench back.
“What did she say?”he asks.
“We just need to give her more time I guess”

“She can never forgive me and it hurt she is following that bastard”I almost cried as I watch Bryan speak.
