                  (THE FINAL OPINION)

Before they uttered their unspoken questions, I asked quickly. 

“What would you like to drink? I do believe we have anything you 

need” I knew nothing about what I was saying but I said it anyways.

Corper – no, Alex. It would take a little practice, changing the 

name, I noticed mentally. He seemed to grumble something but I 

missed it. I swallowed slightly, as I placed a great smile on my face, 

pretending to be unaware of the tension.

Alex‟s mother glared at me. “I want nothing, thanks” she said 


“Oh, I would have something. Could you get me a fruit wine 

please dear” the Senator said, inciting the glare of his wife. I smile 

victoriously. I had no idea what a fruit wine was but I surely would 

not disappoint him.

“Just a minute sir” with that, I floated out of the sitting room, 

with my bag of clothes left on the floor, at the middle of the sitting 


I smiled as I glanced back and saw the silent state with which 

the sitting room seemed to be in. The girlfriend of Alex seemed to 

have gone as rigid as a pillar of salt as she tried to make sense of the 

situation. I smiled to myself. Well, if I would leave, I might as well 

make my exit a memorable one.

Immediately I entered the kitchen, I saw Tina and Tola staring 

at me in shock. Tina‟s expression was more of bewilderment and Tola 

expressed her undiluted irritation.

“What did you just do there?” Tina asked in shock. They had 

obviously been eavesdropping.

Tola snarled. “What she has just done is clear. She has revealed 

her true nature, behaving like the nuisance that she obviously is by

disrespecting her boss. Get prepared to get sacked. Frankly, I can‟t 

wait for that to happen” she said with disgust.

I fixed her with a firm glare before turning to smile at Tina. This 

was not the time to banter words with a fool, I told myself. “Tina

dear, could you do me the favor of showing me where you keep fruit 

wines? The Senator requested for it and I would like to serve him 

myself.” I said in a pleading tone.

Tola laughed hysterically but I ignored her. “See this little fool. 

The wines are there at the bar in the sitting room. You have no 

business here little novice” she said.

My blood drained as I heard her. OH no! I had just spoiled the 

fun. If the wines were there, I could bet that glasses would be there as 

well, so what would I say I came into the kitchen for?

Inspiration hit me at once and I went to the cabinet and 

grabbed two glass cups.

“Madam! That is not a wine cup” Tola said again.

I ignored her and rinsed the cups, placing them on the tray. 

Tina looked confused but, bless her soul, she decided to help me by 

explaining where, in the bar, I would get a fruit wine. I thanked her 

and carried the tray back into the sitting room. The room was as 

silent as I left it and I smiled internally again. I was having so much 

fun at their expense.

As I dropped the tray on a side table, moving it to them, I 

quickly explained. “Please make do with these glasses sir. I fear the 

glasses at the bar might be a little unclean, and it might not go well 

with your system” I was saying arrant nonsense, I knew, but I 

pretended to mean what I said. “I would just get the wine” I walked 

to the bar, remembering Tina‟s descriptions. I picked the first cherry 

wine I saw and walked back to them. Opening the wine seemed like 

a really difficult task since I had never opened one before. I stared at  "Let me open that. Your fingers might be a little tender for this" 

he said with a smile and I heard Alex mutter something that sounded 

like a really terrible curse. As the senator took the bottle from my 

hands, I realized instantly that he was actually a likeable man. There 

was no disputing the fact that Alex got his looks squarely from his 

father. Although elderly, the man looked exceptional, and coming 

from me since I am terribly picky, i would say he is exceedingly 

handsome. He looked so breathtakingly masculine in the dark brown 

suit he had on and I could imagine several young girls falling for 

him. Looking at him, I wondered just how handsome he would have 

been in his youth, if he could be this compelling at 50. When I stared 

at Alex, I knew exactly what he would have been like at that age. 

Alex was more handsome than he had the right to be. Who would 

imagine that someone with the behaviour I recently noticed in him 

would be as handsome as he is? No wonder women were swimming 

all over him, just to gain his attention. Unfortunately, I happened to 

fall into his trap.

The senator popped the bottle, snapping me out of my 

thoughts. He was about to fill the cups when I hastily collected it. I 

would show them the good daughter-in-law they would miss before 

I leave, I told myself. "Let me do it sir, I am sure you would love the 

taste of this cherry wine" I murmured and his eyes flashed with 

something i could not place. I risked a glance at his wife who was 

practically my mother-in-law. She had an uncertain look on her face, 

like she had not decided whether or not to accept what was going on. 

I filled her glass with a smile. "Mummy, I am sure you might want to 

reconsider your desire for a drink. You must have had a long day"

I stood with a satisfied look on my face.

"Can someone tell me what the hell this maid is doing? Who is 

she?" The lady's patience seemed to have snapped. She really is 

saucy, I thought. I am sure she had not even greeted the Senator and 

his wife. How can Alex marry this one?

it like a work of art until the senator came to my rescue again.

The senator frowned. "Which maid?" He asked in total surprise. 

For the first time, he noticed the dress I was putting on and a sharp 

shock went through him. His wife shifted on her seat uncomfortably.

I laughed slightly and was about to talk when Alex cut in, 

talking for the first time since his parents' arrival. "Don't you dare 

open your mouth" he yelled with deadly warning.

I glared at him. "You can't do anything to me Alex" his stunned 

expression registered when he noticed that I used his name. For the 

first time! I smiled and turned to the senator. "Sir. I was made to 

resume the duties of a maid, the very day I got married to your son"

"What?" The senator bellowed

"Married?" The girl yelled. I wish I could remember her name, 

but frankly, I keep forgetting. She turned to Alex, who was glaring at 

me, making me squirm a bit. He looked uncomfortable and I guessed 

his girlfriend, or fiancée was the cause. "What sort of shit is this 

Alex?" She screamed.

He stood beside her with a pained expression. "I can explain" 

he said, pleading.

She hissed and picked her bag. "Explain to the dogs" she said 

and marched out of the sitting room and I was surprised her feet did 

not drill holes into the tiled floor. Alex pursued her until he got to the 

slammed door and the Senator's voice rang out.

"Bring yourself here this minute Alex and explain the trash I 

just heard"

If eyes could kill, I was pretty sure i should be dead already. I 

swallowed heavily as I thought I might have gone too far in my little 

melodramatic displays. Alex seemed to be boiling with rage as he 

marched to the place I was standing, seizing me by the shoulder. 

“Are you crazy woman?” he roared. “Was I not clear enough when I 

told you expressly to shut your stinking mouth? Do you have any 

idea as to the tenacity of what your stupidity has just caused?”

“Alex” the Senator bellowed. “How dare you constitute a 

nuisance of yourself in my presence? And when in the history of your 

life have you seen me rough handle your mother the way you are 

doing currently? Let go of her this instant” the Senator was on his 

feet in anger. I had trouble determining whose anger seemed greater 

as they both glared; Alex glared at me, the senator glared at Alex. The 

equation became balanced when the senator‟s wife turned to glare at 

her husband.

“Mark, you should be in support of your son instead of 

scolding him because of this piece of trash here. I don‟t blame Alex 

for treating her like a maid, she certainly looks like one.”

“Will you shut up woman” he barked at her as he faced her. 

“Do I blame Alex? I wonder what devil transformed him into this, 

and I would wager that the devil looks very much like you” she 

gasped and her face turned red. Alex‟s fingers dug into my shoulder 

painfully. I had definitely done everything wrongly, I thought 

sternly. As much as I disliked my evil looking mother-in-law, I did 

not want everyone to get insulted because of me. I opened my mouth 

to speak but before I could jump in, the senator proceeded. “Why do 

I have the strange feeling that the whole „maid‟ thing was your idea?” 

he glared at her.

“Are you insulting my mum because of this thing dad?” Alex 

rasped and his anger seemed to have increased several degrees.

“This „thing‟ is the woman you impregnated, and as long as 

you remain my son, you would have to accept her. If you don‟t love 

her, learn to.” He said with a dead serious look on his face.

“I am a grown up man dad. As much as I respect you as my 

father, you cannot teach me how to run my family. I am capable of 

doing whatever I damn well please in my own home, irrespective of 

your opinions. You know me well enough to know that I don‟t take orders from anyone” he took his hands off me and stood taller, like 

an immovable pillar. I knew without a doubt that he was dead 

serious. I could not imagine anyone making Alex do what he did not 

want to do. Even though he was coerced into marrying me, I 

wondered how he had been pressured into the messy arrangement.

The Senator smiled dangerously, making my heart skip in fear 

as I anticipated what he was about to say. Alex was so much like his 

dad in so many ways, I noted, as they faced each other. I wondered 

within splits of seconds why Alex took everything from his dad, 

except his dad's character; although the charming character had been 

evident in the village. It was probably just deceptive pretense, with 

the sole aim of getting into my pants, I thought. My thoughts came 

back to the sitting room when the Senator paced gently, circling Alex 

and I.

“You, my son, are probably the most stubborn man on earth, I 

agree, but you should know that every stubborn man has a father. If I 

remember correctly, Amara‟s father threatened to disown her if she 

did not get married to you.” My heart raced as my eyes widened at 

the direction his words were going.

“Sir” I called, pleading.

“Be quiet, Amara, I am talking to my son” he scolded and my 

lips slammed shut.

He continued. “I would not threaten to disown you, because, 

apparently, you are my only child. However, the child in Amara‟s 

womb in most definitely my grandchild and I would not have you 

subjecting her into unpleasant duties. If you refuse to treat Amara, 

your wife, with the respect she deserves, I would withdraw you from 

your position as the head of „The Bellos Crow‟”

“What?” Alex gasped out as the words sank in. I was pretty 

sure I was as pale as a plain sheet. What have I done?

“You can‟t be serious honey?” The senator‟s wife said in horror. “You can‟t do that dad; I have spent several years of my life 

serving the company. You surely would not take it from me now.” 

He gasped out. I vaguely wondered how that was even possible since 

he just finished his service but that was the least of my worries.

“I can, and I will do just that Alex. Not only that, you would no 

longer be a member of the board at Belzinc. I say what I mean Alex, 

you know that”

“Oh my God” I gasped. “There is no need for all these sir. It is 

really not necessary. Please don‟t fight your family on my behalf sir, I 

am sure I can‟t bear that” I choked slightly at the thought. I had 

definitely done everything wrong. “As you can all see” I pointed to 

the sack of clothes on the floor. “I was about to leave this house. I can‟t possibly stay in this house. I assure you that I was not pressured 

into that decision. Being a maid was a good thing because it kept me busy; I really am not used to having people do things for me. I am a village girl. Please don‟t withdraw the company from him or 

anything for that matter. I have caused too many problems and it 

would be good if I just leave 

The senator smiled. “Like Alex rightly said, I can‟t run his 

family for him.” He turned to Alex. “Son, the mother of my unborn grandchild wants to leave your house; it is for the both of you to decide. You either find a way to make her stay, or let her leave. Chris has been eyeing your position for years, I am sure he has the 

managerial abilities I look out for” he said with silent threats which nonetheless were loud enough for the deaf to hear.

He turned to his wife and said sternly. “I believe we should be heading home. We have a lot to talk about” he murmured. For the first time, the senator‟s wife seemed agitated. They both swept out of 

the sitting room and within seconds, I was stunned to find myself alone with the man who was supposed to be my husband.
