A Story Written By Larabae13…

 James arrived at the house in the afternoon and was waylaid by his mother in the

foyer. “Don’t you dare take a step further, James Timothy Kevlar.” Mary said threatingly at

James who stopped and looked at his mother in surprise. “What’s all this about mother? Is it

because I’ve been out all night and this morning?” He asked in confusion. “Take a look at

yourself, you look like you slept in your clothes which smells of alcohol and your face is swelled

up like you were in a bar fight.” She said in a strong voice making James to take a step back.

“I’m sorry mother, I got carried away. I didn’t mean to get bashed up.” He pleaded. “That aside,

why did you lie to me about your engagement?” James mother asked which brought James

head up quickly and sharply. “I see that Violet as told you the truth. I’m sorry mum, I didn’t

want to hurt you I just wanted to make you happy and to stop you from nagging me about not

having a wife.” He said and pleaded to Mary running his hands through his hair nervously. “So

you think decieving me was the right thing to do? Decieving everybody?” She asked hotly

making him to squirm. “I’m sorry mother.” He pleaded with his heads down in shame.

“Fortunately for us and unfortunately for you, we all love Violet and she’s part of this family

now and you don’t have a say on it.” Mary revealed making James to frown in surprise. “You

hurt her James. You made her cry.” Giovani added as he and Alan walked towards them. “I did?

I didn’t mean to. I’ll go and apologize right now if that’s all what you guys want.” James voiced

out in frustration. “Don’t go near her James, she doesn’t want to see you.” Alan stated to James
who paced around restlessly. “She’s not going anywhere James, she’s staying here after new

year for a while, decided that she needed a Vacation.” Mary made it known to James and

walked away. James stormed off to his room and stuffed his clothes into his bags with his

passport and wallet. He picked up his bag and went down to look for his parents then went up

to them as she sighted them in the greenhouse. “I’ve decided to go back to London early, I’m

sorry for everything Mom, please tell Violet that I didn’t mean to hurt her. I’ll call you guys.” He

said and hugged his mother with his father giving him a pat on th back. “Be safe, son” his father
said and James turned to go. “Kelvin, do you think James and Violet would stop being hard-

headed and realise that they love each other?” Mary asked her husband as she settled her head
on his chest. “I’m sure they’ll figure it out. We aren’t going to interfere, let them wallow in their anger a little bit. After they’ve calmed down both of them would come to their senses.” Kelvin
affirmed stroking her hair tenderly. “I hope so” Mary sighed and breathed in the heady scent of
the flowers.
