In Search Of Mr Perfect ( Episode 20)

This was one of the bleakest day of her life.
Imabasi was confused as she was angry. She would probably slap Victor on the face if not that he was her new boss.

Her new salary was worth the stay and patience.

She gazed at Victor’s fingers and saw a white gold ring in his fourth finger.
Congratulations…” She said in a shaky tone.
For what?” Victor asked looking amazed.

Your ring… you’re married now.”

Oh this, thanks. My wife is my everything now.” Victor said proudly.

A drop of tear rolled down her cheeks, and she fought against the fear to cry right before Victor.

She wiped her tears with the back of her hand, angry because Miriam’s evil had taken her by surprise once again.
She touched her forehead and thought she might have fever, but she wasn’t sure. It could be the heat.

You can go. Mr Renault will show you around school. And Introduce you to the students.”

Imabasi nodded shyly.

She could feel Victor’s eyes on her, but then he had been watching her since she stepped into the office.
Without a word, she carefully made her way to the door; but before she clicked it open, Victor said, “Imabasi” She paused, and then turned to face him.
Yes” She replied with a shaky tone.

I loved you very much. You were all I ever wanted. But when Monica came to…”

It’s okay.” She cut in. “I understand you had to go on with your life. I will get over it.”
You will get over what?” 

Victor asked huskily as he stood up from his chair and took steps toward her. “Are you still in love with me?” He asked, staring directly into her eyes.
No. I was never in love with you.”

What about now? Are you in love with me.”
No!” Imabasi said softly, like she was scared of something.
He smiled lightly and then said,
“It’s a lie. You love me right now. I can see it in your eyes. I saw how your face fell when I told you about Monica. You didn’t wanna hear about her because it breaks your heart to see that she is married to me.”

Go away!”

She Yelled as she walked out of the office, she undid her hair and allowed it to flow down and held the door, about to walk out when Victor held her and pushed her to the wall. Kissing her deeply, he said, “Don’t you ever walk out on me. I am your boss now. And not that guy who used to run after you back in Wembley.” 

He said and took his hands off her.

I don’t want any trouble. don’t ever kiss me again. You’re a married man.”
But you kissed me back. You kissed me right?” He asked, thrusting his hands over her head.

She coughed and then sputtered. She was so weak she had to lean against the wall.
She watched Victor for a moment, as he walked back to his seat.

Her heart was pounding in her throat, her body was taut with yearning.
But her heart felt when her eyes caught the ring in his finger again.
She gave an audible sigh and walked out of the office without saying a word.
Imabasi went back to her new apartment after her last teaching for the day, she was sad and anxious to talk with Miriam.

She had wanted Victor to kiss her and never stop. Her heart was still hammering inside her from the experience as she dialled Miriam’s number.

You betrayed me you scumbag! You’re not my friend anymore, you’re not my bestie anymore. You led me to this Miriam? You had the gut to throw me into the lion’s den huh? 

When I see you anywhere in London” She stammered with a deep breathe, “I will fight you, I will push you down to the floor, I will call your mom and tell her of how you betrayed me. What did Victor say to you that had to make you betray me huh?

You knew that ‘married victor’ owned this school and you decided to purposely enslave me into working here right? I will never forgive you!” She ranted for a few minute without realizing that Miriam had hung up the call a long time before she finished talking.

She was suddenly quiet as if some forces had shut her up.
Then she thought of the kiss again. Desire streaked through her like the lightning that streaked through the sky.
