A NIGHT WITH HIM
Damien picked a glass cup too and aimed it straight at her,they started throwing things at eachother and the bodyguards quickly stepped in.
Harold ordered them to take Allysia to her room and lock her door.
And she didn’t made it easy for them,they had to take to forcefully take her to her room.
They locked her in and she screamed, banging the door.
She threw things in different directions and shattered the expensive oval mirror.
Her jaw got bruised when she and damien were throwing things at eachother but now the shattered mirror had bruised her palm.
Damien on the other hand almost got slapped by Irene.
But Harold stopped her, she was breathing fast in anger, disappointed at what Damien had done.
He had stood up for her but she feel he went overboard with it.
Blood seeped out of his nose and he had a small cut on his forehead,his whole face was red and he didn’t look remorseful a bit.
“Do not hit him for expressing himself” Harold said to Irene.
The maids were cleaning up the whole place,the dining room is a total mess!
“Take him to his room” Harold said to his bodyguards and damien was also taken to his room..
He bent to pick the sweater he had been asked to give ivory before following them.
He was so pissed that he felt like punching someone,he restrained himself and followed the bodyguards quietly.
“Alex, call doc Fern right now” Harold said and Alex nodded and left to carry out the order.
Irene stood there,not knowing what to do.
“I’m so sorry Mrs Nola, I’m so sorry damien was rude to you” She apologized on his behalf and Mrs Nola only nodded,stunned by the whole incidence.
Her cheeks were smeared with jam when Allysia and Damien were throwing things at eachother.
“Is your brother always this violent?” Mrs Marshall asked in disgust.
“He’s not always violent, Allysia made the violence move first,she threw a glass cup at him!” Irene said,a bit sternly for the first time.
She was defensive of Damien.
She always have her brother’s back just like he always have hers.
She might not be able to stand up for herself but she won’t watch her brother get insulted.
Mrs Marshall was a bit surprised at the tone of Irene’s voice,she had never spoken to her that way.
She always speak like a scared cat.
“Damien should at least have respected the fact that she’s a lady! He clearly doesn’t have respect for whomever” Mrs Nola said, spitefully.
” Damien loses total control when it comes to me,he doesn’t care about gender. If i had know he was coming,i would have warned Allysia beforehand. And he shouldn’t be blamed for this,he would never have attempted to hit her if she hadn’t hit him first” Irene said.
“He has no manners,he was so rude to me” Mrs Nola said.
“I apologized Mrs Nola,I’m so sorry. He was blinded with fury” Irene said.
“Allysia has always been rude to Irene too. Do you now feel the way Allysia makes Irene feel? ” Harold asked, surprising everyone.
“Irene doesn’t owe you an apology neither do Damien, you never apologized to Irene whenever Allysia was rude to her. And Mum, you raised Allysia the perfect way” Harold clapped mockingly.
He got to his feet and told Irene to return to her workshop.
Mrs Marshall and Nola stared at him as he walked to the door.
“Doc Fern will be here to get damien and Allysia treated and everyone of you should stay out of it. I don’t want anyone in either Allysia’s room or Damien’s,leave them to sort themselves out” Harold said before walking out of the door.
They all knew he was pissed about the whole thing but he was obviously more pissed at his Mum and Mrs Nola.
He walked towards his garden and his bodyguards stayed back.
He loves being alone in there.
Irene was back in her workshop also,she couldn’t do anything,she sat and stared into space.
Her bodyguards were there with her and no one spoke a word,aware of what just happened.
It had spread among the workers.
She wanted to go see damien but Harold had ordered everyone not to.
Harold walked into Irene’s workshop and her bodyguards greeted him.
“You all should leave” He said with a very serious face.
Irene has never seen him look this way.
He looked angry and she panicked, he was probably angry at Damien for causing fuss in his house.
Irene’s bodyguards left immediately.
“Tom,get me my laptop from my room” Harold said to Tom before he left.
He paced her workshop without talking to her and then sat when Tom brought his laptop.
She turned to him and blinked like a nervous puppy.
He knew she was staring at him but he didn’t raise up his head.
Irene felt sad he didn’t look at her lovingly like he always do,she was convinced he’s probably angry at her and Damien.
She didn’t say a word,she only continued staring, hoping he would look up at her and say something or even kiss her,she isn’t gonna refuse this time .
He sat there calmly, busy with his laptop.
He regarded her from beneath his lashes and smiled to himself.
It was hard to stop staring at him.
He was putting on a simple T-shirt that revealed his powerful muscles that bunched and flexed as he typed fast.
The blue shorts he wore didn’t do a good job in hiding his long legs either, he has a great body and she almost drooled staring at him.
Of course this isn’t the first time she’ll be staring but he looks more appealing to her right now.
She can’t believe she finds him more appealing when he’s pissed.
There’s this sexiness to his pissed state.
The way he arched his brow almost made her imagine naughty things.
Her gaze left his body and moved to his face.
His long curly hair was parted at his forehead,his narrow straight nose was perfect and his thin lips…Ohh..God.
Why are you doing this to me Harold?
She kept staring at him, imagining naughty things.
She almost forgot the latest incidence as her mind went back to when they had sex at Mrs Perse’s motel.
She’s so ashamed of herself to be thinking of that now.
“Your eyes might pop out of the socket from staring” Harold finally said and looked at her with his soft golden eyes.
She pouted…”Are you pissed at Damien and I? I’m sorry”
Harold sighed softly and dropped his laptop beside her sewing machine.
He drew her closer to him together with the single chair she was sitting on.
He stared into her eyes and he was lost for a moment,he almost kissed her but restrained himself.
She looked like a scared little thing he suddenly felt the urge to protect her.
Her circled his arm around her waist.
He can’t just explain what her eyes does to him.
“Stop looking like that…it’s killing me. I might just rape you” He said jokingly and she smiled.
He caught a strand of her silky hair and tucked it gently behind her ear.
“And I’m not pissed at Damien but you. Damien did nothing wrong,you started it all”
“How?” Irene wondered loudly.
“I’m pissed at you cause you gave Allysia the chance to talk to you rudely right from the start, you made her feel it’s normal to talk to you anyhow she likes, i keep mute most times cause i wanted you to stand up for yourself,i wanted you to shut her up,i wanted you to yell back at her, i wanted you to break free from her chain but you never for once reprimanded her,you watch her yell at you all the time without saying a word, you might be respecting her for being Nola’s daughter but there are limits to those things. ” Harold said and Irene stared at him without saying a word.
She now understands why he’s so pissed .
He’s pissed at her dumbness.
Maybe it’s finally time to break free from Allysia’s chain and teach her some lessons.
“I was happy Damien came, i was more happy he met Allysia yelling at you. I knew there was no way he would allow that and he proved me right” Harold smiled.
“Allysia is my younger sister and i still feel sad till date that i had allowed my mum raise her,my mum played a huge role in what Allysia became today,she spoilt her. She didn’t get to spoil me so i guess Allysia received it all but then i won’t blame my mum totally, Allysia is now old enough to know what’s right and wrong, she’s old enough to change her spoilt behavior,she’s rude and she knows it but she has refused to change despite the countless long sessions i’ve had with her. I’m going to have to send her to Africa to help with the outbreak going on there if she refuses to change” Harold said.
“No! Please, she’s still so young for that and besides, helping with the outbreak is voluntary,you can’t force her to go there” Irene said.
“I know but I’m gonna threaten her with that to see if she’s really gonna turn a new leaf and you need to stop being lenient with her, she needs our help to become a better person” Harold said and Irene nodded.
“I’m gonna talk to Mrs Nola too and my mum. I won’t allow her take her back to Paris. Allysia will be here with us permanently and she’ll only get to go to Paris during holidays” Harold said and he looked like he meant it.
“How’s your mum gonna take it?” Irene asked.
“I don’t care, she spoilt her enough already and I’m ready to step in now” Harold said and Irene smiled.
He’s willing to make Allysia a better person,he didn’t even care if she isn’t his blood,he loves her regardless.
He’s a selfless charming man,he’s always willing to go out of his way for others,he never gets tired of helping people and he’s so hardworking regardless of the amount of wealth he has required,he has a good heart.
Someone like him is rare to come across and she’s so glad to have him in her life.
Not only that,he’s in love with her as she is with him and their love seems to be increasing at the passing of each moment.
His arms was still circled around her waist and she blushed as he stared at her.
“I guess it’s your turn for your eyes to pop out” She said and he grinned.
“I bet Damien must have unnerved you” Harold smiled.
“Yeah” Irene agreed.
She’s worried about him though,she has seen blood seep out of his nose and she really hope he’ll be fine.
“You’re worried about him right?” Harold asked and she nodded.
“He’ll be fine,he’s as strong as i am” Harold showed off his muscles and Irene laughed.
She touched his muscles and her hand could barely cover it firmly.
“Geez!” She sighed.
“You must be working out real well” She added.
“Not really” Harold shrugged.
“I must look like an ant compared to you” She sighed and rolled her eyes.
Harold laughed…”I love it that way, it makes me feel the urge to protect you”
“Woah” Irene blushed.
“I think I’m gonna be breaking a rule now” Harold said and didn’t give Irene to ask what rule it is before placing his lips on hers.
It lingered for a moment,she didn’t push him away and she was too stunned to return the kiss.
“I’m sorry, couldn’t resist” Harold muttered against her lips and deepened the kiss.
He had wanted to be gentle but his hormones got the better part of him.
Irene kissed him back as fiercely as he did and they both bursted into laughter when they stopped to catch their breath.
Damien’s nose already stopped bleeding before Doc Fern walked into his room.
He had washed his face and pulled off his T-shirt to clean and stop the blood from his nose.
“Hi Doc Fern” He said.
“Damien,how are you? I can see you are not fine though. Let’s get you treated first” Doc Fern said,he had come with a young nurse who stared at Damien’s chest in lust.
He was pissed to have offended Irene but he didn’t feel a bit remorse about what had happened between him and Allysia.
“Your cuts are little, compared to that of Allysia,her jaw is bruised and broken glasses had bruised her palm and foot,it’s pretty serious, she’ll have to limp for a couple of days” Doc Fern said and Damien felt sorry for her.
He hadn’t mean to hit her back but he had been so furious,he can’t seem to control himself when it comes to Irene.
He knew he was responsible for the bruise on her jaw but definitely not the one on her palm and foot.
He still felt sorry for her though..
Doc Fern didn’t waste time in attending to his wounds,he gave him some meds after that and left him to rest.
Allysia was asleep by then and her room has been cleaned.
Damien laid on his bed and stared at the ceiling.
He hadn’t thought any of this would happen.
He hadn’t even expected anything close to it , he was still surprised Allysia was the one Ivory always told him about.
Marlene had called and he felt bad he hadn’t returned her call,she badly wants to speak to Irene and he’s not sure Irene is in the right mood to do that now.
He walked out of his room shirtless and headed to Irene’s workshop.
Heads turned as he walked past bodyguards and female workers.
Their jaw literally dropped in wonderment as they stared at him.
He seems not to notice the stir he was causing as he kept walking.
He walked into Irene’s workshop and Harold smiled on seeing him.
“Irene,I’m sorry” Damien said and Irene got to her feet.
“No, You did nothing wrong” She said and pulled him into a tight hug.
“Thanks for standing up for me” She kissed his cheeks.
“But you shouldn’t be rude to an older person next time” Irene said.
“I didn’t mean to but i was just so pissed she couldn’t reprimand her daughter, i saw her when i walked in,she was looking less concerned and even continued eating when Allysia was yelling at you” Damien said,still upset about Nola’s behavior.
Irene touched the little plaster on his forehead and he winced in pain.
She felt like crying.
“Does it hurt?” She asked and he nodded.
“I’m so sorry Dam” She said, feeling so bad.
He had gotten hurt because of her.
“Don’t be, and i have something to tell you” Damien smiled.
“Really?” Irene asked eagerly.
“My husband is arriving tomorrow” Mrs Marshall rushed into Irene’s workshop, almost breathless.
Everyone turned to her.
“Is my dress ready?” She asked Irene anxiously.
She had expected Irene to say no, because tomorrow was actually the deadline she gave her.
So she had come to hasten her up cause her husband is coming tomorrow.
“Yes ma’am, it’s ready” Irene smiled.
“Wow” Mrs Marshall was impressed.
Damien wondered who she was.
“My mum” Harold said to Damien, seeing the confused look on his face..
“Ohh…Hello ma” Damien bowed in greeting while Irene went to get the dress.
Mrs Marshall studied him keenly for few moments.
“You’re just like Harold when he was younger” she said and patted his back and even the blind could see that she likes Damien.
“Yeah,he’s mini me” Harold said and they laughed.
Irene held out the beautiful dress in front of Mrs Marshall and not only her was stunned, Harold and Damien was too.
No one could explain how Mrs Marshall ended up hugging Irene.
Irene was shocked,so as Harold.
