The Boss The Maid

Chapter 19 (semi- finale)
I burst into laughter when I got to my room, the plan really work perfectly, in fact so fast!
‘I thought linda was a brave girl and she never give up on anything, but she surprised me’
Am getting her arrested tomorrow morning but I need those assassins too.
In the morning..
The police had come to take Linda and she was asked to lead them to the assassins’ home and she did.
We arrested both linda and the assassins and will be taken to court on Monday.
I felt happy, I got to Christabel in the hospital and told her the news. She was happy the plans worked perfectly.
She told me she will be visiting her in the court as a surprise to her.
“Richy, we will be suing her for attempt murder cause if we sue her for murder, the judge may sentence her to death, which is not good ”
“Have been thinking of that too, maybe two years or five year imprisonment is okay”
“Yeah, I can’t wait to get out of this hospital, am becoming tired of it, am strong enough to go home ” she pouted her mouth.
“Don’t worry, you will soon go home, just be patient okay? ” I said and she nodded.
‘Am going to end my life in jail ‘ I thought as I held one of the iron rods which was used as a boundary between me and the assassins.
“Linda, see what you caused now, you don succeed in sending it to jail” one of the men called tommy spoke out.
“Me wey say I dey hustle my own, nah you people con say make I join una group, you say e go bring better money ,see wetin end am. Chaii greediness no good oo” Another boy said.
“We you shut up, you just know how many years you will spend in jail, you are here talking rubbish”.
I sat down on the floor and didn’t know what to say.
Days rolled by and, it was Friday.
Everyone had come to see me even some staff from richard’s company came too.
They bought a wheelchair and I frowned my face. “What’s this for? ” I asked, rolling my eyes on the wheelchair.
“Cause of your condition, the doctor said you will have to use the wheel chair for sometime” my mom said.
“Mom, I wasn’t shot in my legs, how do you expect me to use a wheelchair and to show you that I can walk with my legs, see this”
I stood up, on my feet and walked a little though I was still feeling the pain but it not really like before.
“Honey, why don’t you let me give you a help while you walk ” my eyes went straight to my parents to see their reactions but they were smiling at me.
‘He just called me honey in front of my parents, I still have to tell them about my relationship with richard though he haven’t ask me out yet ‘
He noticed me and laughed softly ” o told them my love for you and they gave me a go ahead ”
“When did you do that cause I was about telling them soon ” I faced him.
“I did that the same day I got Linda arrested, am sorry if I didn’t inform you ”
“There’s nothing to worry about christabel, we give you our blessings “my dad said.
“We give you our blessings too sweethearts, so let go home and celebrate christabel’s return ” richard’s mom said.
I walked myself out of the hospital with richard’s support, we got to the car and drove home.
Richard’s dad got the door opened, everywhere was dark ‘why?’
“Why is everywhere dark? ” But I got no response.
Suddenly, the lights went on and I gasped in surprise. “Welcome home christabel! “I turned my head right and saw about 10 more people inside, some were holding a welcome card.
I walked inside happily, they really had to decorate the house for the welcome party.
” Christabel!! ” Someone yelled my name and I turned to see whose feminine’s voice is that.
“Hannah!! oh my God! ” I spread my hands for her to hug me.
“How are you? you have grown so big ” she said, scanning my body.
“Same as you, when did you come back? ”
“Well, I came back on Wednesday and I decided to visit you at home but your father told me you are already working and you aren’t living here.
They told me what happened to you, I asked where I can see you, he told me he and your mother will be throwing a welcoming party here today so I followed them here ” she said grinning widely.
Hannah was my best friend, we both went to the Same secondary school and university.
She’s an easy going girl but if you look for her trouble, she’s going to give you hers.
“Attention everyone” A man said and we all turned to him.
“As we all know why we are here in this party and that’s to welcome our princess home miss christabel” he added and I blushed.
“Thanks everyone, I don’t have much to say, first I will like to thank God for making me alive till now.
Secondly, I will like to thank everyone again most especially Richard, my parents and richard’s parents for their care since I was in the hospital. God bless you all ” I said and they clapped.
I scanned everywhere for richard with my eyes but I couldn’t see him.
‘Where did he go? ‘ The light went off again and there was silence everywhere, no one was talking.
Then, it went on again.
“Christabel ” I heard
my name and turned to see richard kneeling on one knee and to crown it all, he was holding a bouquet of roses in his hands.
I closed my mouth cause have forgotten it was closed.
“Richard, what are you doing? ” I whispered, tears were about to fall from my eyes.
‘Why did I even want to cry? ‘
“Christabel, it about time you make me the happiest person in the world if you say yes. Will you be my lady? ” he said, with smiles plastered on his face.
“Are you saying I should be your girlfriend? ” I just wanted to be sure or maybe am still in the hospital dreaming.
“Yes darling ” he nodded.
Tears finally came down from my eyes.
“Yes… yes, I will be your girlfriend richard” I answered and he stood up smiling and gave me an emotional kiss.
I collected the roses and every one clapped in happiness. Hannah’s grinning was now wider than before.
