*Rhoda*

I was on my way out of the compound with Rachel following closely behind me. It wasn't hard pretending I couldn't see her nor was it hard pretending I couldn't hear her even though I was sure she was calling my name.

'I want to talk to you.' She said as she arched her way forward until she was standing in front of me, hands folded across her chest while I had no choice but to halt to a stop.

I fiddled with my car keys impatiently wondering why she has to pick Today of all days to want to approach me.

We were doing fine ignoring each other and yes, I have had enough of her melodramas although, I was starting find them amusing and cute.

Maybe if she had chosen a day aside from this, I may have considered the possibility of listening to her whille she tries another failed attempt at breaking David and I up.

'Well, I'm sorry I don't want to talk to you.' I answered, pausing for a while before resuming my trip to the gate while making sure I steered clear of the assumedly 'nice' Rachel who followed me.

'I don't do this on a normal day and yes, I still don't like you and I won't pretend I do but I guess that feeling is mutual. Either way, I feel obliged to be real with you, I feel like I need to let you know what you are walking into...' She stopped following me when she realised I was rather too focused on getting out of the house coupled with the fact that I made it obvious I was ignoring her.

'I shouldn't be doing this but I am doing it anyway and I don't even like you. I am the one with the information and you should be the one running after me to get it and not the other way round 'cos guess what, this info isn't going to break or make me but it could make or break you. I won't chase after you anymore. I believe if you feel something is off somewhere, you would come to me. Only pray then that I won't have exhausted my patience' She yelled after me as I made my way out of the gate right after signaling to the gatekeeper to lock it after me.

'In a hurry?' David's voice boomed as I ran my body into his. He jostled me from falling as his mahogany hard chest provided some sort of support which kept me on my feet.

'Not really... I am just... I want... I just want to drive around. You know... I am tired of staying locked in....' I stammered my way around each word finding my own voice kind of strange to me.

A pouch of silence enveloped the air around us and that made it more than hard for me to keep up with the staring contest we were both having. I let my eyes cruise everywhere but his face.

'What are you up to?' He asked leaning back into his car, his forehead creasing curiously.

'I told you already. I want to just drive ar...' I tried to stay devoted to my lie but it turned out he could read right through me.

'We don't have to do this Rhoda. Just tell me what you are up to. For all you know, you might actually need my help deciding.' He said, scanning my face, leaving me vulnerable to his eagle eye.

'I am not lying. I don't know what makes you think I am but I am not up to anything.' Who was I fooling anyway? The tone of my voice already gave me away.

I would need to try harder to convince even me.

'I would tell you you are terrible at lying but that would be unnecessary since I might have assumed you know that already.' He answered, then took a brief pause. 'Now, tell me, what is the plan?' He asked, still leaning into his car.

I slumped my shoulder in defeat as I frolicked with the zippers of my bag.

'I am going to see my dad. I asked him for a meet up.' I finally let that out, while I mentally prayed it wasn't a bad idea.

'I would have asked why but since I can't think of any reason, except bad ones for meeting up with your Dad, I am just going to assume you are naive and you don't know what you are doing. Just like I predicted.' He replied after being closemouthed for a minute or so.

He leaned away from his car, pressed the lock button on the key and made to go inside.

'So, does that mean you are okay with that?' I filed in even though I knew the answer to my own question.

'Of course I am okay with that. Oh, lemme illustrate how the conversation would go. You'd be like ' Hey, Dad. David and I are planning to take the company away from you. Hope you won't be too mad about that?' And your dad is gonna be like. 'It's alright baby. I am fine with that.' And you guys will hug it out like one big, happy family.' He expressed with pure sarcasm protraying me stupid and childish.

'I am only going to ask him a few questions. I want to know what he is thinking. I want to know if it's right to take the company away from him. I want to build my actions and I don't care if you find that stupid or naive but that is the right thing and that is what I'm doing.' I said, trying hard not to waver off my new found confidence.

****

I waited patiently and nervously for the moment of truth.

The moment I knew would decide what my next line of action would be.

My heart thumped loudly at my chest and the silence that enveloped the air around us made the thumping quite audible and I was almost scared my dad would hear it.

My dad was sitting across the table just in front of of me. The light from the roof of the hut was too dim making it hard to make out the outline of his face talk more of reading his face. Even though he found it ridiculous we were meeting in the open, in the dark, I was certain I made the right call.

I don't want to see the expression on his face nor do I want him to read mine.

'I'll be giving the company to Peter.'He answered after what seemed like forever. My shoulder slumped in exhaustion. I felt stabbed and betrayedp and was I surprised my dad would be the dude with the knife.

I remained seated, silently wishing I heard wrong and he hadn't talked yet.

I wanted him to say it.

I wanted him to laugh abruptly. I wanted him tell me this was all games and he is done playing.

I wanted him to tell me I was his choice but... that never came.

I held back the tears that had suceeded in welling up in my eyes and was I grateful to the darkness for hiding my tears?

I don't want to look weak especially since that's the least of things I want to be right now.

'Okay.' I muttered under my breath. Lifting my purse off the table, I made to leave.

'That's it? You are not going to shout at me? Demand for a reason?' He asked, holding out his palms worriedly.

My back still turned, I wiped the tears off my face then turned to look him in the face.

'A reason? Do I need to know the reason for this? You chose Peter over me and it is no assumption anymore. I clearly don't need a reason for this. Fact remains, I'm not your priority anymore. You chose him despite me giving up my goal to support you...'

'I never asked you to. I always remind you to follow your goals so don't make this sound like it is my fault!..'

'But I did follow your goals anyway. I wanted to be of more help not knowing you would eventually repay me this way...'

'Repay you? For something I didn't even ask you to do?' He wasn't remorseful or anything and I instantly knew it was a lost cause talking to him in the first place.

David was right and it was all up in my face.

'Okay. I'll just leave then.' I turned one last time and took the long walk to my car while tears streamed down my face. I was past caring. I didn't want to hear it anymore. This wasn't my father and I sure as hell knew I would be doing him a favour taking away the company from him.

I scroll through my call log and put a call through to David.

'When are we starting.' I announced immediately he picked up the call.

I read on Wattpad too, there are some authors on that app too who could go for weeks without updating, some even put their works on hold.
Please learn to appreciate the work, they're trying, and they have a life outside this forum. Whatever is going on in their life is their private issue, yet some share it with us, some don't. We are all human with feelings.
Appreciate a good work when you see one.
This writer has been consistent enough if you look at her pedigree from her previous works.
