THE SOUND OF LOVE ? ♥
BY RUTHIE LÊÊ ??
**Sarah’s pov continues**
I got home and parked my car outside our building, …
I walked in and found my mom and Valery watching cartoon
“hey mom” I said removing my jacket and placing it on the arm of the couch,
“mommy!” Valery came to hug me and I leaned forward and kissed her forehead.. I sat down on one of the couch and started to remove my heels..
“let me help you with that mommy, you look tired” Valery said happily and moved closer to me but I shook my head negatively
“it’s fine honey I can manage” I say and she frowns and sat down next to me. . .
My mom stands up and head to the kitchen, while I turn to Valery
“valy dear have you eating”
“no I told grandma I’m going to wait for you ” she said and I smiled, mom came back with a plate of spaghetti tacos..
After eating, Valery went sat beside me, and I didn’t know what was wrong with her actually, she didn’t stick like this before to me.. And later on the fell asleep and I tuck her in bed, giving her a good night kiss..
I went back to the living room remembering my car, I forgot to tell mom..
“mom I have to show you something ” I said
“who owns that car outside our yard” my mom said in a high pitched voice thinking it was someone else car,
“it’s mine” I said with happiness and my mom flinched
“yours?…how when, huh” my mom said confusingly
“i know it’s strange but my boss, he bought it for me and I don’t even know why” I said still smiling
My mom narrowed her eyes at me and said “tell me more about your boss” she said
“why? ” I ask
“are you sure he doesn’t have any feelings for you” my mom asked
“what, mom not.. He’s my boss and I’ve only known him for two days or three, how can he possibly fall for me and he knows I have a daughter and guys fall for single girls not grandmas like me” I said and my mom arched her eyebrow..
“look mom he just bought it for me as a token of his appreciation to me” I say not actually listening to my self
“okay.. ” my mom said and crossed her arm.
I sat on the couch and grabbed a pillow, “mom don’t you Think Valery has been acting strange” I asked
“how strange?” my mom said
“sh.. she’s been acting kind of not-Valery, she just stick to me like taffy and she even insisted to remove my shoe how weird is that , she’s acting like if I go she’ll. You know.. Break” I seethe and my mom laughed ..
“that’s because she’s missing you silly, everyday she keeps telling me how she wished you never got this job because you come back home late,” my mom said and I suddenly felt heart broken,..
“really?” I said lowly and my mom nods..
Well the next day approached faster than I thought and i got up early, bath, brushed, morning stuff and I took Valery to school and she was damn happy, I parked my “car” at the parking lot in front of the marbella and walked straight to Zachary’s office, I hope he’s still not In a bad mood like yesterday cause he didn’t look fine and he didn’t even tell me goodnight..
“good morning sir” I say as I entered into the office
He looked up and nods
“you’re three minutes late” he remarks.
Three minutes.. Is he fucking serious, if he’s so pissed off about it he should just..
“I’m sorry sir” I apologize for the dumbest thing he just said
He nods and I sat down, why is he so angry… At me. Or.. What..
“take this to Owen.. Or no I’ll do it my self ” he said angrily and stood up with a book in his hand and walked out. Someone’s in a bad mood..
Few minutes later he walked in and sat Down, he seemed more angry and I wondered why,
He didn’t talk to me or tell me to do anything so I just stayed quiet and stare at my ball pen biting my bottom lip .. He suddenly sighed and I looked at him and we made eye contact
“look Sarah I’m sorry” he said
“for what sir” I asked knowing what exactly he was sorry for
“for being rude minutes ago I let my anger for another person fall on you am really sorry ” he said and sighed
“actually.. It’s okay ” I say truthfully and he let out a small smile.. And breathed out a sigh of relief..
“so have you eaten ” he asked and I nodded even though I haven’t eaten though..
“okay” he smiled
“I need you to help type these out its not much” he said and I collected the papers he handed me
I started to do what he asked me to do and I was done in no time so I handed it to him, he collected it with a smile and I felt happy..
I felt down again because I suddenly had a thought of Valery, she misses me, my daughter missed me. The thought of that made me a little misty and I sniffed
“are you okay? ” Zachary asked
“yeah. I’m fine” I say and coughed
“if there’s anything tell me I’ll…
“I’m fine thanks ” I interrupted him and he nodded and faced his work,
During lunch, I ate with Owen and we talked about a lot of things, and I find him very interesting…
Days passed with me doing my job fine, mr Zachary’s still nice and l’ve already gotten closer to Owen and we hang out like a lot and he had already know about my harsh past.. I just couldn’t keep it from a friend..
It was Saturday I woke up by the sound of Valery’s voice calling ‘mommy’
“oh honey what is it” I ask as I opened my eyes..
“it’s Saturday I don’t have to go to school and you promised me you will take me to work today” she said happily and I smiled
“you really don’t forget things” I say and she smiled exposing her dimples..
I took my bath and my mom helped me bath Valery and I took her to work and she just couldn’t stop talking and pointing at buildings.. “look mommy that building’s so big ” she’ll say but I’ll just nod “look mommy that house Is very very ugly” she’ll say but still I’ll just nod..
Finally we got to work and I parked my car and me and Valery came down with me holding her little hand..
While entering the marbella I bumped into Owen
“oh hi ” I said and he smiled “this must be Valery right” he said and bent down to look at her closely “hello” Valery said and Owen smile beams.. “you’re one cute girl” Owen said and stood up
“so till lunch right” Owen said and I nod and he walked away while I grabbed Valery and we went to my office..
As I walk in Mr Zachary wasn’t in the office and I was kind of happy, I don’t know how he’ll react seeing Valery.. “so Vally don’t act naughty okay my boss we’ll be here soon” I say
“boss? ” she tilts her head
“he’s someone you work for like the owner of something, he’s the owner of this big building” I explain and she nods in understanding..
My hand mistakenly pushed the files on my table and it fell and scattered on the floor so I picked it and started to arrange it but stopped by the sound of Valery’s voice saying
“mommy I can see everything from up here” she said and when I looked up she was standing on Zachary’s chair looking down the window
“Valery come down!!” I yell and immediately the door opened and Zachary entered inside..
He paused seeing Valery and she suddenly looked scared..
“uh-huh um good morning ” I said nervously
He pointed to Valery.
“I’m so sorry sir, Valery get down from there ” I yell and she came down slowly and ran to me..
I thought Zachary was supposed to be mad but he just smiled and stared at Valery..
“mommy he looks scary” Valery whispered to me but Zachary heard it and laughed..
He walked up to his seat and sat down still smiling. “I look scary” he said to Valery and she nods slowly..
“well I’ll tell you what, Valery I may look scary but I’m not” he said and Valery beamed a “really” and he nods
“so.. Sarah” he calls and I made eye contact with him
“the magazines are coming today and I need you to get me three from the cloth sales department before distributing” he says and I nod and gave Vally a smile before heading out..
I made my way to the CSD (cloth sales department) as fast as I could and when I walked in the manager said I was the best and when I looked in front of the magazine there was a me.. A different beautiful girl like me.. I thanked him and head back to the office..
As I stepped in I met Valery sitting on Zachary’s table and they were both having a conversation
“so here it is” I said and Zachary Frowned.
“don’t you recognise me at all Sarah” Zachary tells me and I became confused but said no
“don’t you ever get a feeling that you know me before” he asked
“no” I shook my head he stood up and sighed I do but not really..
“well.. It’s me Zack.. Zack.. Your high school friend” he shouts and the books fell from my hands
Oh my goodness
I could I not know this,
His smile and Valery’s smile are the same the same dimples and oh god this is so not good..
