Tears ran down my cheeks as I quickly rushed to mommy and hugged her tight.
She hugged me too.
She was in tears as well.
“I miss you mommy!” I whispered
“I miss you too baby” Mom said as she wiped her tears off.
“Please I don’t want to go back to the slums mom! I don’t belong there….” I cried out.
“Cassie please….” Mom cried
“Mom I thought you loved me so much” I cried
“I love you so much Cassandra… It’s not a loved cos I still love you because you are still my daughter” Mom said
I knelt in front of mommy as tears rolled down my cheeks.
“Oh baby please stand” Mom tried helping me up.
“Mom please take me in! I don’t want to live in the slums mom…. I can’t cope, I don’t like their food, the bed, the environment…. Everything! I feel like am gonna get sick” I wailed
“Cassandra if it were in my power, I wouldn’t have given you up to the Monte’s but I had no choice” Mom said
“Please mommy…. I can’t bear this anymore! I tried but I just can’t…. That slum is so dirty” I cried out.
“Cassandra they are your real family and your real parents and you should get to know them!” mom said
I quickly banged the table roughly.
“Bullshit Mom! Bull shit….. I can’t breathe there…” I cried
“Baby you have to…” Mom said
I burst into tears…
“Mommy can you believe it? I haven’t had anything to eat since morning” I cried
Mom widened her eyes in shock as she covered her mouth with her palms.
“What?” She asked in shock
“Yes mommy! I haven’t had anything to eat…. And guess what? They prepared hotdog and buns with sour ketchup for breakfast” I weep
“Am so sorry baby… I know you don’t deserve that kind of life but I can’t take you from your parents” Mom said
“What parents? They cannot even provide what I want… Am being mocked and treated inferior by my peers in school” I cried out
“Oh my poor baby” Mom said as she kissed my forehead.
“Mommy please I don’t want to go back to the slums” I cried
“But baby….” Mom said
“Please mommy! Including Gracie… She hates me so much saying I stole her life from her” I lied crying pathetically
“Gracie did? Are you sure Cassie?” Mom asked anxiously
“Yes mom! She even attempted to pour a hot pasta on me but she mistakenly poured it on herself” I lied
“What? Gracie did that to you?” mom asked
“Yes mommy! They all now treat me like a piece of trash” I cried
“It’s OK baby! Am here for you” Mom said
I pretentiously yawned hungrily.
“Am famished mommy” I said
“Come on baby… Let’s go have lunch together” Mom said.
My face brightened up in excitement.
This was what I wanted all along.
And as for mommy, I know she loves me more than her so called biological daughter.
I will use this to my favour.
Gracie will be sorry once am done with her
I smirked within me as mommy and I walked out of the office.
I sat on my large bed with a mirror as nanny Miranda applied some cream on my reddened face.
“Ouch…. This really hurts” I cried
“Sorry dear! Who did this to you?” Old nanny Miranda asked
“It’s a long story nanny!” I groaned
“This is really deep Gracie dear!” Nanny said
“And it’s painful too” I said
“Sorry” Nanny said as I screamed again.
Just then, my door throw open and my mom walked.
“Good evening mommy!” I said as I tried to peck her but she pushed me away.
“So it’s true!” She said as she slapped me.
Tears welled down my chubby cheeks.
“True? What’s true?” I managed to say
“Charlotte? Why?” Old nanny Miranda asked in surprise.
“Enough! Just stay out of this Miranda!” Mom shouted
“I can see the bruise on your face… So you actually wanted to pour hot pasta on her but you mistakenly poured it on yourself?” Mom said
“What are you talking about mom?” I asked
“Shut up! You know exactly what am saying…. You are nothing but a bloody liar” Mom said
I burst into tears….
“Me? A liar?” I asked in confusion
I tried touching her but she slapped my hand off.
“Don’t you dare touch me with your filthy hands… You’re dispeakable” Mom said in disgust as she walked away.
What did I really do?
I fell on the bed in tears.
I walked their God forsaken hell hole of a house.
My hands was full with lots of shopping bags.
I had a lot of fun with my mom.
It was already very late but who cares?
Mom credited my account with a lot of cash.
I walked in without greeting any of them… they are not worth the greetings.
“Where are you coming from Cassandra?” Mr Fred asked.
I scoffed and ignored him.
“Are you deaf?” Mrs Martha raised her voice at me.
I rolled my eyes at them rudely.
“Isn’t it obvious? Or are you guys blind or something?” I said rudely
“Cassandra can’t you talk with respect?” Monica yelled
“Where the fvck did this cockroach come from?” I sighed at her.
“Where are you coming from?” The other said
“If you must know.. I went coolvalstories shopping 🛍 and I know poor maggots like you guys can’t afford it” I said as sneered at them.
I quickly walked up stairs.
I walked into the room and and slammed the door.
Excitement filled my heart.
My plans are falling in place.
Am now so loaded 💰
I bet mommy is going to lash out on her useless daughter.
I smirked wickedly.
I also have to teach my friends a lesson of their lives.
And guess the most beautiful part?
MOMMY GAVE ME BACK MY CAR 💃
I smiled broadly to myself.
Mr Sam’s Pov:
I was walking down the corridor.
When I heard someone crying.
Who could that be?
It was coming from my daughter’s room
Could Gracie be crying?
I gently opened the door….
The room was so dark… The light was switched off.
“Gracie! Baby!!” I called but no-one answered.
I switched on the light.
To my greatest surprise, my precious baby girl was sitting on the bare ground crying her eyes out.
Her hair was scattered and her eyes swollen.
“Baby?” I called as she quickly hugged me tightly…….
To be continued…..
Who else is hating Cassandra the more? 😡
I feel like punching her 😭
