Must Read: Chris & Roberts… Episode 17

Chapter seventeen
“What do you mean?” As she watched,
Robert’s face turned white immediately, and
confusion clouded those grey eyes that she
loved so much “you’ve just told me, you
loved me” Robert slowly shook his head
“then why won’t you marry me?”
This was totally a different case from Chris’
predicament, Amanda was bold in her
“I won’t marry you, because am not sure of
your intentions” she said simply.
Robert stared at her, clearly confused by
her statement finally, he asked “what
intentions other than normal marriage and
child bearing could a man have?”
“Maybe to win a bet” Amanda looked
straight into his eyes in search of reactions,
and reactions she did see.
Robert looked betrayed, confused and
worried the same time, he slowly took a seat
next to her before asking “what exactly are
you trying to say?”
Amanda forced herself not to smile, she
needed to be serious if she wanted answers,
she maintained her composure “I have this
belief that you and Chris had your usual bet
on me” she tightened her face and
pretended to look angry “a bet on who’s
going to sleep with me first”
Amanda blinked three times, trying to hide
her fears.
What if she was making a mistake right
Robert managed a false smile, he knew
Chris will never tell Amanda about their race
“that’s ridiculous” he said “where did you
get that from?”
“This is no game, Robert” she said slowly
“the only reason I can’t marry you, is
because I don’t want to be a trophy to any
man, I want to be a wife -a real wife-”
“Okay, enough of these, who’s feeding you
with these Bullshits, I honestly need to know
where this is coming from”
If Chris actually betrayed him by telling their
secret to Amanda, then he was going to
regret it, the one thing Robert hated the
most in his life was betrayal, and Chris of all
people should know what he could do.
“Okay’ Amanda said “am going to tell you a
little about your past, before I tell you who
fed me with the bullshit”
“Am sorry I used that word on you” Robert
apologized immediately
“It’s fine, several years ago, when you were
still in the university, there was this
restaurant called ‘sleek spice’ remember?”
Robert only nodded then she continued
“yourself and Chris always go there to
celebrate whoever slept with your mark
first” she chuckled “well, the world is a
small place, I have a friend who used to be
a staff there then”
“I hate to admit that, but I can’t say its a lie
either, but that was like centuries ago, its all
in the past” Robert explained
“Am not done yet” Amanda looked straight
into his eyes as she said “from the way you
and Chris entered my life the same period
with the same intentions, Robert give me
one good reason to believe everything is not
about gamble”
The last statement weakened Robert to the
Should he tell her the truth now?
No need!
She will never find out
“I love you Amanda, and that’s the only
reason I can think about now”
He sounded so sure of himself, but that was
Robert, supremely self confident and
convinced that he knew best. It would be
wonderful if it were true. For further
confirmation, Amanda needed persist a little
“Chris also said the same thing” she said
“See” Robert had fatigue written on his
forehead now “I can’t replace you for
anything, even if there was a gamble, I will
freely give away any prize just to win you
and keep you by my side forever”
Oh! How romantic! The spark of hope that
had refused to be extinguished flared again.
“You say that now” she said
“And I’ll be saying it for the next twenty
years, marry me Amanda”
“I don’t want to make a hasty decision
because I hate regrets” Amanda said “so
this us how we are going to do it” she
smiled broadly “if nothing changes after one
year, then I’ll marry you”
“Nothing is…gonna…change” Robert
Amanda smiled, the man was incorrigible
and utterly lovable.
“I insist” she argued
“Believe me, I can wait for as long as
whatever, nothing will change, I will be right
here for you”
“Then let’s wait”
“How about six months”
“A year”
“Nine months?”
“A year!”
“I can see, you won’t give up” Robert
grinned “well, I have another plan in mind”
“What could that be?” Amanda met his smile
with hers
“We get engaged, throw a big engagement
party, so that all the men in the world will
know that you are mine, then can I patiently
wait for as long as my Queen wishes”
Amanda laughed at the humour in his
statement “Deal!” She said.
Robert pressed his lips against hers, sealing
their engagement with a kiss. This was no
gentle kiss but rather a fierce declaration if
their decision. His lips plundered hers, his
tongue invading the sweet recesses of her
mouth, sending waves of warmth coursing
through her veins. Amanda stretched out
one arm around his waist and pulled him
closer, while the other hand traced the
edges of his face.
She was with her beloved, the man who had
haunted her dreams for months, she felt the
attraction on the first sight of him. Though
she had no believed it possible, but
somehow despite everything, it looked like
those dreams will sure come true.
“I love you Amanda” Robert said “I will
always love you forever”
