The agony of Love

                       πŸ’ž Chapter 3 πŸ’ž

                     πŸƒ Allison’s POV πŸƒ

     “Is this Prince crazy? Why did he choose me!!!”

     “He is in for trouble. He’ll be the one to send me out of his house at last. This is unbelievable!”

    “Muuummmmm!!!!!!” I screamed ignoring the stares I was receiving.

    “I’m here dear” mum was smiling

    “Why are you smiling?” I frowned at her ” I’m not getting married to that scumbag”

    “The Queen has mentioned your name and that’s final. I’m so happy for you my dear” mum said

   “Aren’t you angry, I’m dressed like this?” I asked

   “No I’m not sweetheart, who knows, if you hadn’t dressed that way the Queen mightn’t have chosen you”

    “I can’t believe you’re my mother”

  “Let’s all go and prepare for the wedding coming up this night. Our Prince is going back tomorrow” The Queen announced.

    Everyone left in twos and threes.

   “Is that all!!? Mum do something”

   “Yes baby, let’s get prepared for your wedding.”

   “Why are you suddenly calling me sweet names?” I asked in frustration.

    “I know you’re angry but please let’s not cause a scene. I promise, after six months and you still don’t want him, I’ll help you but you must also perform your wifely duties too”

    “Mum six months right?”

    “Yes, I promise. Six months”

    I grudgingly followed her home to prepare for my so called wedding.

  “I can’t wait for six months, I know what to do”

    πŸ˜’ Tyler’s POV πŸ˜’

    “I can’t believe you did that to me mum, among all the girls standing it’s that crazy girl you chose.”

    “I love her and she has a generous heart”

    “I don’t care about generosity. How do I mould that to my taste? Didn’t you see the way she dressed?”

    “What’s wrong with her dressing? It shows she’s not after your money.”

   “I don’t want her, choose another person”

   “Let’s make a deal, stay with her for six months and perform your husband duties, if after that you still don’t want her I’ll know what to do”

     “I can’t even take her to an event” I whined

   “You can and you will. Remember she’s your wife”

    I looked at mum for a few seconds and went to my room.

    “The Minister is holding an event and you have to attend with your wife” Mum shouted.

    The Wedding πŸ€΅πŸ‘°πŸŽŠ

   I watched as she walked through the aisle to meet me at the other end.

   I grimaced internally as she walked with stilettos. If care is not taken, she’s going to fall down anytime soon.

    I wonder when on earth she would wear a smart dress.

    As a prince, my wedding is supposed to be a big but I thank Heavens it’s not really big else she would have disgraced me this same way.

   Cameras are rolling and I’m sure the wedding is playing live on local channels.

  I looked at her from her head to her toes again.

   She deemed the occasion important enough for her to pack her hair in a ponytail, she’s wearing probably her great great grandmother’s wedding dress. The style is so out of date.

   Why isn’t mum doing anything about it?

    I searched the crowd for her mother and found her hands over mouth in shock.

   She’s definitely not aware of her child’s dressing.

  I turned to look at mum, she’s smiling so hard her mouth will tear.

  I turned back to look at the bride.

   The flowers in her hands had seen hard days and are dead.

  I couldn’t cry, why’s this girl doing this to me!!

  I looked at her feets, she was wearing a flip flop and socks!!

    Did she come from another planet?!

   When she got to me, she opened her teeth and grinned at the camera.

  Each tooth is painted with different color.

    We both turned to my father because he’s the one anchoring our wedding rites as the King.

   “Do you Tyler Stones take Allison as your wife?”

   “I do ” I answered calmly though I’m boiling underneath

   “Do you Allison……”

   “Allison Porridge” Allison grinned at dad

   Dad’s mouth formed a perfect ‘o’ before he continued.

  “Do you Allison Porridge take Tyler as your husband?”

    “Yes I doing” she smiled

  “I pronounce you husband and wife” Dad announced “you may kiss your bride”

   She opened her mouth for me to see her tongue, it was painted with different colours also.

   “I’ll pass” I whispered to Dad and smiled at the cameras.

  After the vows she took off to only God knows where.

   πŸ‘‘ The Queen’s POVπŸ‘‘

  “I hope I’m doing the right thing Dennis” I held my husband’s arm as I watched the Newly Weds go home.

   “I trust your decisions dear, but why did you choose her if I may ask?”

   “I don’t know, I just love her daring spirit, she reminded me of my youth. I did worse than her” I laughed

   “Thank God you’re soft now” Dennis pinched my nose in admiration

   “I pray nothing goes wrong”

  “Me too” Dennis added quietly.

   
       β˜ΉοΈ Tyler’s POV ☹️

   After she left me standing yesterday, she came back this morning with her luggages.

   Now we’re on our way back to Ohio and we’ve been silent since the beginning of the journey.

  “Aren’t you going to talk?” I asked

  “What talking am I talking. I like silencing and no disturb. Let me alone on peace!” She said and continued looking out the window

 “Oh God, what have I gotten myself into??”

“To be continued……..”

                     πŸ’ž Chapter 4 πŸ’ž

                  πŸ˜… Allison’s POV πŸ˜…

    I laughed internally at the look on his face. Sooner or later he’ll send me out of his house.

  “We’re going for a function this evening so Immediately we get home order your preferred dress online. I’ll pay when the delivery comes. My business partner wants to celebrate the success of my wedding.” He said

  “Okayed” I grinned at him.

   “And please wash away whatever is in your mouth, it gives me goosebumps”

    “Assurance”

 I heard him mumbled something under his breath but couldn’t make out the words. This is going to be interesting.

🏩🏩🏩🏩🏩

 I let out an involuntary gasp when I saw his house, correction, mansion. This man standing beside me must be stinkingly rich.

    The house is so big and beautiful. If the exterior is as nice as this, I wonder how beautiful the interior would be.

    He took my pause for admiration and smiled smugly.

    “My house is the most beautiful and biggest in the country” he boasted.

    “Information accessed and found useless” I walked past him to the front door.

  I tried opening the door but it wouldn’t budge so I stood aside and waited for him.

   He brought out a remote and the door opened.

   He walked inside and I followed suit

    “Why remote when keyhole sat there?” I asked

    He whipped around so fast I took a step back in caution

   “Can you stop speaking that way?”

   “I telled you I don’t go school” I replied cheekily.

     He walked upstairs and I followed him.  “We have to stay in the same room” he said

 “Why?”

  “May I remind you we’re married and the queen might come suddenly anytime”

   “Okay” I agreed

He opened the door to what I’m thinking would be the master’s bedroom.

    “We have less than three hours to go, I’ll leave the room for you to get dressed, I’ll use another room”

    “Two minutes is enough for me to dress up” I said in my mind

    I nod and looked around the room.

   It’s so big that I can remove fifteen of my room.

  I heard the door close, I looked back and saw he has left.

   Few minutes later, a knock came on the door.

    “Come in” I said to whoever is at the door

    A young girl came in, wearing an apron. She must be a maid.

    She rolled in my suitcase and left almost immediately.

   “Shit! I forgot to do what I planned, well this night is not too late.”

    After opening several doors, I finally found the bathroom.

   I planned to use the shower but on second thoughts, I used the bathtub and locked the bathroom door.

   I filled the bathtub with warm water and poured a vanilla scented liquid soap.

    Vanilla is my favorite flavor.

   I entered the tub and relaxed, the warm water soothed my nerves.

    I washed my hair very well and scrubbed my body.

   When I came out, I felt refreshed.

   I tied a towel and went to the room.

   I looked at the time and gasped in shock.

    I had spent almost two hours in the bathroom!!!!!

   “Did I by some chance sleep there?”

   “No, but that’s the only explanation”

    I opened my bag and brought out a black faded jeans and a white tank top and hoodie which inscribed on it was “Weirdo”

  I wore it quickly and applied little make up, just powder, mascara and lipstick.

   I wore my white sneakers and sat on the bed thinking of what to do since I didn’t order a dress.

   Since I have only an hour to spare, I took my phone and sneaked out.

   When we entered, I saw different cars.

  I went through the cars and chose the white one.

   Thankfully, the key was there.

  I ignited the engine and drove off. Seems the gate is motor sensored.

 It opened when I almost got to the gate.

   “This so cool…” I turned on the radio and drove off awaiting his call.

                  😠 Tyler’s POV 😠

   I boiled in anger as I saw her leave.

    “WTH is wrong with this girl?”

   “How do I attend the function without her? Did she even order the dress?”

    I called mother and asked her to get Allison’s number

   Twenty minutes later, her number was sent.

   Now I have less than thirty minutes to get to the function.

  I dialed her number and she answered on the last ring

    πŸ“ž”Where are you?”

   πŸ“ž”I know not, I’m droving anywhere”

   πŸ“ž”How many minutes will it take you to come back home?”

   πŸ“ž”Time will be far”

   πŸ“ž”Can we meet at the function instead? I’ll forward the address to you”

   πŸ“ž”Yes that’ll be okay very well” she replied

    πŸ“ž”Okay” I hung up and tried to keep my breath even.

    She’s even playing cool with her English.

   Lord please touch her heart and let her speak well at the function.
   

     πŸ˜ŽAllison’s POV😎

   “I knew he was going to call me” I laughed.

   My phone beeped alerting me in an incoming message.

  I unlocked my phone and went through the message.

    I got the map from Google and followed the direction.

   I turned off the engine and got down.

   The place is really nice and enthralling.

    I love it.

   I brought out my phone to call him when I spotted him standing beside a car and looking worried.

      I went a little closer to him and waved from a distance.

    His expression went from worried to shock to angry.

    “What are you wearing?” He came over in long strides and gripped my arms tightly.

    “Don’t cause a film here for people to watch” I said harshly “looking looking picture is going around”

    He released me immediately. ” Why are you doing this?”

   “I want to go home, I miss my room”

    ” We are married so deal with it, we aren’t separating.”

   “Okay”

   “Good now we have an understanding, I’ll manage your dressing this night. Let’s go inside and act well.” He whispered harshly too.

    I bobbed my head.
 
” Let’s go” he said and put my hands in his hooked hands. “We have to act like the couple we are.”

    When we got to then entrance and our entry was announced, I removed my hands from his arm and removed my sneakers.

   I held it with my fingers and put my left hand back in his arm.

    “What are you doing?”

    “I don’t want to dirty the ground” I smiled at him.

    “Gosh Allison! Put the damn sneakers back on. Your cloth is embarrassing me enough.”

   I ignored him and flashed my white teeth at the weird look I was getting.

   “Allison!” He tried again.

    The person who I’m thinking should be the host came over.

    “Tyler!” The short man exclaimed

   “How you Mr Francisco?” Tyler shook hands with him.

    ” I’m good, who’s this beside you?”

   “Meet my wife” He introduced me

   ” Hi” I smiled

    ” Hello there” he kissed my cheeks

    “I’m Francisco” The man said

    “I’m Allison” I replied “Allison Rice”

    “Nice name combination ” His eyes flickered to Tyler and back to me.

    ” Why are you holding your shoes and walking bare feet?” Francisco asked

   ” You can’t understand sire” I smiled softly

   “I think I love you” The man held my hands and led me to the center.

    I dropped my sneakers beside Tyler before going with Francisco.

    “Hello everyone, I’d like you to meet  the newly Weds we’re celebrating.” The crowd clapped and cheered.

    Seems they don’t know yet that I’m the bride.

    “Meet the wife Allison Rice” He paused and waited for the crowd to cheer.

      No clapped or cheered, they just looked on like zombies.

   My cloth must really be something.

    Every female in the room wore an evening dress except me.

    Francisco cleared his throat “And her Husband Tyler stones”

    The crowd began to murmur.

   A woman came out, stood beside Francisco and stared at the crowd.

   Then she turned to me “Allison, would you please introduce yourself to our guests, we would like to know more about you.”

     Most of the guests nod their head in agreement.

    “Okay” I answered and face the crowd. “My name is Allison, I am a baby, I have legs for crawling and hands to walk” I dropped to the ground to demonstrate.

   I stood and continued “I am a girl, I have tiny legs and and hands.” I wriggled my hands for effect.

   ” Now I’m a lady, this is how I am” I twirled and smiled at the ground.

   They all had their mouth opened including Tyler.

    Mr Francisco glanced at me and laughed. The guests followed suit too except from some who quietly whispered in each other’s ear.

     “I love your spirit my dear”

I smiled at him “I like you too” I told him, audible enough for Tyler to hear.

    I scanned the floor for my sneakers, the ground is cold and my feets are freezing.

   I’ve done enough for the night, I need to go back to that bath.

   “I’m off Mr. Francisco” I whispered in his ears and kissed his cheeks.

   I found my sneakers where we stood before and ran out of the room.

    I need that bath before Tyler gets home.

  “To be continued………..”

                       πŸ’ž Chapter 5 πŸ’ž

                      πŸ™‚ Allison’s POV πŸ™‚

   I removed my clothes as soon as I got inside and prepared my bath.

    I came out an hour later and Tyler hasn’t come home.

    I wore a comfy cloth and went to the kitchen to prepare my food.

  I met the maid trying to prepare dinner and I asked her to leave the kitchen for me.

   I’m going to do my wifely duties as I promised mother except having sex with him.

    “What’s the essence of making love with him when I don’t like him?”

   Well apart from the fact that I’m scared and I’ve never done it before, I should do it with him because I love him just like in movies and novels, I can’t give up my pride to an arranged marriage.

   I hope all the embarrassing things I do will remove the idea from his head.

    He won’t even be allowed to kiss me even on the cheeks but all other things, I’ll do as a wife.

     I prepared the meal and set the table.

    I waited for a little while for him to come so we can eat together.

When I didn’t see him, I called the maid instead to eat with me and I left his food covered on the table.

    I’m sure every channel would be replaying the scene I made at Mr Francisco’s.

      When it was ten pm and I didn’t see him, I retired to the bedroom and slept on the bed.

   Moments later, I awoke to the sound of the bedroom door opening.

    “Have you eaten?” I asked

   “No, since I have a wife, I shouldn’t be eating a food prepared by the maid”

    “Oh…… really? I ate it and it was delicious. I must admit she’s a good cook”

    “Now you can speak correctly”

    “Well I’m not outside trying to embarrass you” I shrugged

   “This could affect my business badly”

   “No, it’ll give it more fame. The Business tycoon’s wife is acting like she’s sick” I laughed

     “When will you stop?” He asked

   “When I get back home”

   “You know I can be a little crazy too and if a couple act like they are crazy, what will people think?”

   “Simple and straightforward, They’re mad!”

    “Fine, you really are crazy”

   “You have no idea” I grinned.

    “You have to start your wifely duties which includes cooking, taking care of the house, tame my wild dog with me, we sleep together and we build a family!”

   “Family??” I recoiled inside “This embarrassing of a thing isn’t working, I need to try harder”

     
     πŸ˜’ Tyler’s POV πŸ˜’

   She looked at me like I’ve grown two heads and burst out laughing.

   “Did you know what part that got me laughing the most? We build a family!” She burst out laughing more.

   “It’s not funny, my mum wants to meet her grandchildren”

   “Well she’ll wait for a long time because I can’t start a family with someone I don’t love”

    “Exactly my point” I replied “I don’t love you either and I ain’t tolerating you. I’m just observing how crazy you can be”

   She smiled even wider. “Follow me” she said

    I followed her and she led me to the dining room.

   Maybe she wants to cook for me, I’m starving and I don’t want to order food.

   “Sit down” she pulled out a chair for me  and crossed over to sit opposite me.

   She uncovered the dishes and set then in front of her.

   Looking at the food alone made me salivate. “Can my maid cook this well?”

  She glanced at me and picked up a fork.

    “Now watch me eat since you don’t want it”

   She took a forkful and moaned at the taste.

    “Is the food that delicious? My maid has never made a delicious meal. Is Allison faking it?”

   I watched her finish the food unable to say anything.

    When she was through, she stood up and rubbed her belly in satisfaction. “Your maid is a nice cook”

   I stood up angrily and went back to the room.

    She followed and kept filling me in on how delicious the food is.

    When we got inside, she removed the duvet from the bed and placed it on the couch.

   “Why did you remove it?” I asked

   “I’m sleeping on the couch, you take the bed”

   “That’s better, I loosened my time and unbuttoned my shirt.

    She removed her flip flops from her feets, the same flip flops she wore to our wedding and put them on the wardrobe.

   “Why are you putting that dirty thing in my clothes”

   “I’m trying to make the room neat” she locked the wardrobe and laid on the couch to sleep.

    “When will we build a family?”

    “In your dreams”

    I removed my clothes and went to the bathroom.

  When I came back to the room, I heard her snoring softly.

    I couldn’t help but wonder what’s beneath the baggy clothes she wears.

    I think I need to teach her a lesson.

     I laid on the bed and slept off

Next Morning πŸŒ„πŸŒ„

   
   I woke up very early and went downstairs to meet the maid, Tina.

   Sh should be up and doing house chores now.

   I found her in the kitchen wiping the plates she just washed.

   “Tina please prepare the meal you cooked yesterday for dinner. I didn’t get my share of the food yesterday and I’ll like some”

    Her eyes became round and huge.

    “What? Are you now scared to cook for me?”

    She shook her head quickly “I’ll prepare it sir”

    “Be fast with it, I’m hungry” I left the kitchen and waited patiently in the dining room.

    Minutes later, Tina came in with a tray.

  I closed my eyes in anticipation as she set the food before.

   The smell almost made me open my eyes but I resisted the urge.

   She left the table and I opened my eyes.

    This isn’t how it was yesterday, even the smell makes me feel nauseous.

   I picked a fork and put a little in my mouth to taste.

   I spat it out immediately

   “Tina!!!!”

   She came running at the same time Allison came downstairs.

    “You prepared a good one for her” I pointed at Allison “and made rubbish for me” I shouted

   “Stop barking at the poor girl, she obviously made mine out of love and prepared yours in fear” She smiled

   “Go back to your room Tina” she instructed her

   Tina left even before Allison completed the order.

    “I have a surprise for you” I said and stood up.

   “What’s that?” She raised her eyebrows

   “Just sit here and wait”

   I went to the kitchen and came back with a plate, fork and table knife.

  I dropped the plate in front of her and sat opposite her.

   “Now I want to watch you eat this”

    “Why should I eat an uncooked meat?”

   “Remember you said you love eating raw meat, I’d like you to eat this now” Now it’s my turn to smile cheekily.

   She glared at me and picked up the fork and table knife.

   She cut out a small piece and stabbed it with the fork.

   She raised the fork gently to her mouth, time stilled as she looked at me, her eyes not leaving mine and mine not leaving hers.

“To be continued…….”
