MY GHOST ADMIRER
I stood there staring at the
picture. After a while, I
remembered I have to be with Mr
handsome. I looked back and started searching for him looking around
the place. I saw him
standing among those people,
holding a camera in his hand. I
walked slowly towards him
smiling. I stood beside him as he walks around
from one place to
another. “Is this where you
work? Wow it’s so pretty and
cool here.”I said looking around.
: Few minutes later, the photo shoot
started. The lady looks so
beautiful as she did different
poses in different fashion of
dresses and shoes. I was
standing beside Mr handsome looking at him as he was taking the
pictures. By looking at his
face, I could tell he like her by the
way he smiles while taking the
pictures. “I can see you had a
crush on her. It’s OK you’re also a man you can fall for her. You can’t hide
that”i said looking at
him. He looked at me then
concentrated back on the
camera. Wow. He could hear that
of all what I’ve been saying to him since. I thought to myself folding my
“Well. She’s so pretty. Am so
jealous of her”I said nodding my
“Good thing you’re not blind”he said under his breath thinking I won’t
After the the photo shoots, he
went to sit down on a chair. And
I followed him standing beside
the table. A girl brought a bottle water and a towel. He received the bottle
from her and opened
the top. “You did a great job.”she
said smiling. “Oh thanks. You
guys should rest also. I have to
meet someone by 12pm so, I won’t be around then. You guys should
finish the rest OK?”he said
standing up from the chair. “Yes
sir”the lady replied.
He went to the other young guy
and whispered something in his ear. He nodded his head in agreement
Mr handsome left the studio
walking down the passage. I
followed him gently without his
knowledge. When he got to the compound, before he could get to his car,
he pressed a remote to
unlock it. He opened the door
and sat down pulling out the seat
belt. He stopped and was looking
around. He peeped through the window then looked behind him. I can tell
he was looking for me. I
was at a corner looking at him as
he does all this. When he couldn’t
find me, he took a deep breath
wiping his face with his palm. I smiled to myself looking at him. “Don’t
be relieved. Am not gone
yet”I said smiling. When he fasten
the seat belt, and was about
driving, I disappeared from
where I was hiding and reappeared beside him. He quickly
stepped on the break
looking at me in shock. “Ooh.
You really scared me”he said
looking at me.
“Were you looking for me? Why? Do you miss me?”I askec looking at him.
“What? Stop popping out
like that scaring people around
with your ugly face OK”he said.
“You don’t have to be scared. It’s
not you first time seeing me. Are you really scared of ghosts?”I asked
looking at him. “What’s
she saying? Am not scared of
them. I just don’t like seeing ugly
ghosts popping our of nowhere.
They’ll look like a demon to me.”he said as he drives the car slowly
out of the compound.
“Really? So you’re not scared of
me?”I asked. “Am not. I can’t be
scared of you. You don’t even
look scary”he replied. “That means am not an ugly ghost then? Since
you’re not scared of
me. Am a sexy ghost not an ugly
one”I said smiling. On hearing
that, he started laughing out
loud. I wonder what he’s laughing about. I didn’t say anything
funny. “What’s she
saying?. Sexy ghosts?”he
repeated and continue laughing.
He almost bump into a car but
quickly turn the staring to avoid it. “You have to be careful if you don’t
want to end up with other
ugly ghosts”I said looking at him.
“So you mean there are sexy
ghosts? That’s so funny. I have
never heard of that before. You’re not even a pretty ghost”he said
still smiling. I feel
good to see him smile. He looks
so cool and calm.
John’s POV As I was still talking and laughing at what
the ghost Girl just said, a
call came in and I took it. My
expression changed immediately
I saw the caller. It was my dad. I
first hesitated to pick it but I took the call and placed the phone to my ear.
He said he wants us to
meet me at his office right now
because he wants to have a
meeting with everyone. I
dropped the phone beside me after the call. I hate sitting down and
talking with him. I don’t like
him and I don’t feel happy
anytime we’re together. But since
it’s a family meeting, I have to
show up. I was not the his first child. I have step brother and I have
sisters also. He got married
to three wives. Nathan was his
first son. He’s two years older
than me. While am three years
older than Mary his younger sister. And Julie was the youngest wife’s
just 16 this year. Nathan’s mother
was the first wife he married. She
made life like hell for me and my
mother when I was still young. She’s so scary and wicked. Even when
father married the
youngest wife, she hired gang to
beat her up and destroy the
pregnancy she’s having. She was
rescued before they could do anything worst to her. Even though my
dad knows she was
the one who did it. He never
confronted her or make any case
on it. She’s so scary than demons
or ghosts. I blamed my mum for getting married to my dad. But what can I
do about it? It’s done
already. Am one of Williams
family. I don’t like engaging
myself with family issues or about
his companies. I like living a simple life and free from their problems.
He has the biggest
company in the state. He has so
many companies and houses. But
I disguise myself from Williams
family. No one knows am Williams in my company. Even when I
was still in school, no one
knows am James Williams son.
I hid my identity from people.
Unlike my other brother Nathan.
He boast about it and spend money like s–t when he was in school.
We’re not close at all. We
hate each other ever since we
were kids. We never act like real
brothers even though we still
have the same father. Mary was the only one who was close to me. She
likes me and love
hanging around me everything
in school. She once told me she
wished we were not siblings. She
would have love to have me as her boyfriend. I took that as a joke the
day she said that.
Back to my car.
I frowned my face on hearing
he’s having a meeting with us. I
have to go just to avoid his nagging. I made a U turn and went back
heading to the
When I got there, I packed my
car at the garage then got down
and walked towards the door. I entered the big company and make my
way towards his office.
“Why are you not looking good?
Are you angry at something?”the
ghost girl asked following me
behind. I ignored her heading to the elevator. When I got to the elevator, I
pressed the button
and it opened. Who I saw there
left me with shock and surprise.
But I hid it not letting it show on
my face. He smiled nodding his head at me. But I kept on the straight
face looking at him.
“Long time no see”he said
putting on a fake smile. We both
were staring at each other
awkwardly while I still stood at the entrance blocking the elevator from
Who could it be?????
