”in town I guess ” he replied
now Sara is feeling suspicious with this stranger…
don take it too personal dear, we meet new people everyday, so whats wrong if I saw her in town today, he replied.
I guess you are right
But that doesn mean she believes him completely, she has to keep an eyes on him and make sure he doesn get anywhere closer to her niece.
so when are you leaving this town? she asked
why are you so eager for me to leave, do I look like a threat or something.
well for someone who came out of nowhere, and just bargh into my house like that, you do look like a threat.
wow, if I can remember correctly you invited me in, some how come did I just barge into your house
I think I have overstayed my welcome, so I need to leave now.
he stood up from the wooden chair and walk towards the door
opening the door he then took a pause,
” for an herbalist you look too uptight ” try loosen up a bit
he then hit the door hard behind him .
* one week later*
After the death of her father, the house has become less of a home for her. she spends less of her time at home and more in the market with her friend.
her father has already been buried, she always visit his grave every evening before returning home. for some reason she didn feel like going anywhere today
Corrine has already taken James to his maternal grandmother in the other town.
I guess staying with his grandma is better than with his wanna be sister and gambling Mom.
the last time she visited him, she was sure he will be well taken care of since the old woman cherishes and love him very much.
shes been having strange dreams lately, non of it looks clear
her father told her to leave, but the problem is where will she go if she leaves this town.
she wasn even aware that Kathrine has already entered the room leaning on the door.
his dead already, stop acting as if you are the first to loss a father Kathrine hissed.
he was dieing anyway, those people did him a favor.
her words pierced through Elenas heart, that she almost cried. how could she say such thing about the man that fed and cloth her all this year. he has never treated Kathrine differently. and here she is say such words about him, its time she put her in her place.
Im not that surprised at all, as guess you won feel the pain of losing a father, since you never had one because he abandoned you and your mom,
oh wait, what am I even saying he was not even in your life the first place.
what would a woman expect from a man she had a one night stand with.
who was he anyway, a tailor, farmer or maybe a blacksmith, but who are we to tell since even your mom had a bad memory of the man she created you with.
how dare you, Kathrine replied angrily and ran towards Elena who was on the bed, she try lift her hands to slap her but was immediately stopped by Elenas hand which held her wrist tightly.
her hands was so tight around her wrist, its felt like someone was crushing her bone. she cried out in pain, she has never felt such pain before.
Elena immediately pushed her hands away making her hit her back hard on the floor.
geting up from the bed, Elena went and stood in front of Kathrine who was still in agony from the pain
look at what youve been reduced to, a bully with no self esteem. let this be the last time you raise those filthy hand on me or try to ridicule my father. I guess the apple don fall far from the tree
now leave! Elena shouted
getting up from the floor, she immediately ran out of the room almost hitting herself on the door.
Elena stood there for a while, till the fury in her mind was calmed
” what just happened right now, did she just hurt Kathrine. she had already been offended by her before but she has never resulted to violence. like she did just now
whats going on with her, she has been acting strangely lately
where did that strength come from, she almost break her hand just now.
Daniel has been busy for the past few days now, he went to get someone ingredients that he will need later.
the last time he met the girl, he decided not to reveal his identify since everything might come as a shock.
he has stayed around this town for quite too long, so far he hasn crossed paths with the witch since the other day
he looks at the root in his hand, identifying plants and there strength is also one of his many talents.
today the town look quite crowdy and busy,
if he ask the girl to leave with him just like that without any strong reason she won agree
” maybe he should kidnap her ”
no that would be too extreme
he have not slept a wink for the past few days now, he need to rest first then maybe he can think of a better idea
trying to walk himself through the crowd in other for him to get to the inn and get a good rest for a while, when suddenly he caught sight of someone
it was the ginger girl, she was selling some ornaments in the market too.
he then move closer to where the girl was selling,
she was already discussing with a lady, he don need to go closer to hear what they were discussing
as usual they were negotiating
after the other Lady has left he decided to walk towards the girl
this women sometimes are too much, how can she prize such a beautiful Jewel, that cost ten silver coins for just ten copper coins, thats reducing its value by half
if not that she was a skilled trader she wouldn have convinced her to buy them for eight silver coins
raising her head she saw a man approach her, as he came closer she was able to make of his features well
brown hair, bronze skin that look like his always in the sun because they look tan.
high cheek bone, there is no other way to describe him other than handsome
she was lost in taught and didn even know when he greeted
she felt so ashamed of herself knowing that she has been caught staring at him shamelessly.
”if this how you zone out on your customers I wonder how many free gift they must have taken away with them as a result of your absentmindedness ”
he couldn hide the smirk on his face, he knows his look can do a thing or two but he didn know his charms were this powerful.
he then showed her the bracelet he took from her table while she was busy staring at him.
seeing the surprised look on her face as she didn notice that he has taken a bracelet from her table made him smiled.
sorry I didn notice you because was thinking about something else, and for you to think that I did that because you is crazy.
really is that so? he asked with a mocking smile
this is so embarrassing, she has never seen out of control before. did he charm her?
is he a magician, because he looked like one
she has to bring up another conversation now because talk about that is too shameful for her.
”is see you have chosen lightning ”
I must recommend as a man you do have a good taste in jewelry.
puzzled at her words he raised the white bracelet up to observe it,
its not actually the kind of bracelet he will called gorgeous but observing it more closer he could see the tiny partern on it which looks like a lightning strike. no wonder the girl call it lightning
its said to bring luck to any girl that wears it, she continued
if thats true you should be the one wearing it right now, seeing the way that you girls don joke with luck he replied.
well sometimes its not good to keep all good things to yourself, you don know who might need it more than you do
hmmm… he hummed
if a man gift that bracelet to his girl its bound to strength there love. just like lightening your love will shine in the darkest time she said smiling
no arguing how noisy it will also sound he replied
so how much is the bracelet he asked.
two gold coins sir she replied with a smile
hmmm I see, if I knew I would have come across such lucky object I would have saved some money for it
something are worth the sacrifice you know, she answered
clever girl and pushy, seem like she won rest till she sell this bracelet to him
how about we make a trade, he asked
well if I owed a pawn shop I would have gladly accepted your offer, but I need money in return for my good.
how about this then, he puts his hand into his pocket and brought out a compass held it in front of her
e she asked stammering
its you she asked shocked
