Chapter 5

  • Jayden angrily went to the room where his mom said Ariana could occupy, with a heavy knock Ari opened the door.
  • "Look I don't give a fuck if you act innocent in front of my mom just because you want me but believe me I'll never fall for all your schemes". Jayden said pointing a finger at Ariana.
  • " what would you like to have for supper sir"?. Ariana questioned ignoring his accusations. "Don't play dumb with me bitch, I don't go easy on girls, especially desperate ones". Jayden warned with a dangerous look which gave Ariana the chills.
  • " Sir if you have nothing I can do, for now, I would like to make myself invisible since it was stated that I'm to be invisible when you're in the house". Ariana replied with a straight face.
  • "make anything with chicken for supper, serve it on the dining and I do not want to smell your scent anywhere apart from this room and the kitchen understood"?. Jayden questioned with a cold look. " yes sir". Ariana mocked as she bowed and shut the door in his face.
  • "oh, I get to live like I own this house". Ariana thought as she peeled off the clothes she was wearing and went to the bathroom where she was surprised to see it was well equipped.
  • Ariana feeling so much relieved slept in the bathtub and was woken up by Jayden who shakes her vigorously. Ariana opened her eyes slowly and took in her environment but screed out when she saw Jayden.
  • " ahhhh!!!. What the fuck. Don't you know what privacy is, how would you guarantee my safety in this house if I can't have a bath without you barging in.". Ariana scolded as she took a towel and wrapped it around her body while Jayden went to the room.
  • "If you hadn't been so carried away by the elegance And beauty of the bathroom, you wouldn't have slept off. Saving your life is a mistake but be rest assured next time I'd let you drown yourself to death and no guy would ever get horny looking at your shabby and poor figure". Jayden mocked as he left the room.
  • With a Huff, Ariana got dressed and went to the kitchen where she saw lots of equipment, with surprise she started touching the equipment shocked that a person could own them all.
  • Ariana checked the refrigerator and opened her mouth wide agape when saw how filled it was with chicken, beef and ham with lots of veggies. Ariana went to the rooms and knocked one after the order and halted when she heard his grumpy voice ." what do you want? ". He asked.
  • Sorry, sir, I don't have any idea about what you would like to eat". Ariana said hoping he won't flare-up. " Are you just plain dumb? I said make any chicken meal that comes to your mind". Jayden replied with a groan.
  • Ariana opened the refrigerator, brought out the chicken and searched for a long time before seeing paprika, brown sugar, oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper. She joyfully made mixed it with the chicken and baked it thinking about how delicious it would be.
  • After a few hours, Ariana was done with the baked chicken breast, she dished out a portion for herself and ate to her heart fill before dishing out her boss's own and putting it in the dining, and left to her room.
  • Jayden who heard her retreating footsteps went to the dining, had his food then called her to take the plates away. Ariana took the plate away and stared at Jayden coz his eyes were turning into a lighter shade of blue. " what". Jayden asked irritated when she looked at him again.
  • "Your eyes, its colour has changed ". Ariana fidgeted. " what do you mean, did you add to this meal"?. Jayden accused Ariana who looked horrified. "I ... I... Ad..added paprika, oregano, pepper, salt and garlic powder". Ariana stuttered feeling intimidated.
  • "Garlic in my food!!!. Typical Kayden, putting what I'm allergic to at my disposal". Jayden grunted as His stomach felt like it was turning inside out.
  • " Is there any drug I could get for you?". Ariana asked with panic. Before he could reply he passed out scaring the hell out of Ariana. " Fuck I shouldn't have accepted this job". Ariana muttered as she examined Jayden.
  • "what do I do now, do I call his mother ... But I don't have a phone and I can't use his own". Ariana thought with disarray. After several thoughts, Ariana decided to take him to his room.
  • She tried carrying him up but since she had a weaker body it was an unsuccessful attempt. She resorted to dragging him from the chair. He landed on the floor with a not so gentle thud as Ariana tried to drag him but it was still hard to drag his muscle filled body.
  • " Gosh, what have I gotten myself into now"?. Ariana said as she put a hand on her hip and try to think of how to get him to the room.
  • "Wish I know where to get a cart from and had someone to help ". Ariana said as she resigned to her faith and dragged him up slowly, sometimes dragging his leg and the few times his hand.
  • After 35 minutes, Ariana successful brought him to the room she thinks belongs to him and with disgust tried to open the door only for it to be locked.
  • " Just great, he locked the door now do I get to drag him to the living room or take him to my room". Ariana asked no one in particular as she started dragging him towards her room. She opened the door and was able to get him on the bed successfully.
  • Ariana screamed for joy and danced crazily as she had put him in the bed. She used the blanket to cover him and sat on the couch where she dozed off.
  • NEXT DAY
  • Jayden woke up and got startled by the bright light. He sat up and looked around and saw Ariana cuddled up in a ball on the couch.
  • He used the blanket to cover her as she stirred in her sleep but didn't wake up. He went to his room and made a mental note to confront Kayden about the garlic after he had thrown the garlic powder away.
  • Ariana woke up and turned still drowsy and reluctant to wake up. "Do you always sleep like you weren't employed "? Kayden said as he looked at her.
  • "what... What. I just had the worst dream of you passing out and I had to drag you up here". Ariana said as she opened her eyes and sat up.
  • "Wait you dragged me up here"?. He asked anger rising.
  • "wow, so it wasn't a dream. Technically I'm sorry boss your body is filled with muscles and muscles and I just couldn't carry you ". Ariana chattered as she looked at his shoulder.
  • "you have five minutes ". Kayden said as he left her room.
  • Ariana freshened up fast and dressed in a short nickel and t-shirt.
  • " Do you always dress like a clown or do you just have a terrible sense of fashion"?. Kayden asked as he looked at her with an amused look.
  • "Say whatever you like, I have a job to attend to". Ariana said as she went to the store he directed her to and got a dusting brush which she used on furniture and other appliances.
  • As she was going back to get the vacuum cleaner she saw a door ajar and peeped her head to see the room filled with exercise machines of all kinds.
  • " wow". She muttered as she saw him lifting weight and watched as his muscles contracted to emit a sexy scene in front of Ariana who seemed dazzled.
  • Kayden scented her presence and walked towards the door and closed it with a loud bang making Ariana wake up and whine after the door had hit her face.
  • "Gosh, he's so out of this world". Ariana said as she got the vacuum cleaner and made the whole house sparkling clean.
  • " what would you like to have for breakfast sir". Ariana said with a mock bow.
  • "Scrambled eggs and toast with a cup of brown coffee, two tablespoons of sugar would do". Kayden replied as he used a towel to clean sweat dripping from his body.
  • Ariana swallowed hard and went to the kitchen to make what he asked for. She brought it to the dining and waited as he ate to avoid any problem.
  • He tasted the coffee and spilt it out ." when making coffee, you let it brew for five minutes, it tastes terrible". He complained making her go back to make another coffee.
  • "Don't you just get it, I said two tablespoons of sugar, it tastes like you added half". He complained again.
  • " What kind of a guy are you for heaven's sake?". Ariana flared as she felt tired of making the same journey because of stupid complaints.
  • "I'm the type of guy who won't pay an incompetent maid". He replied staring at her with anger.
  • " fine, I'll make another ". She muttered and took the coffee back. She brewed the coffee for five minutes and took it with the sugar.
  • " your coffee sir". Ariana said as she stepped aside and waited for him to flare up but was grateful when he added the sugar and sipped his tea with a satisfied smile. "Sir, I would like to visit a friend of mine". Ariana said nervously.
  • " sure, I hope you don't come back and I don't condole late coming. You should get back and make my lunch and do the laundry". Kayden said without glancing up as he read a newspaper.
  • Ariana was beyond happy when she left the house and went to Burger It All. "Oh my goodness". I was so scared when you didn't show up, is everything alright your father said you left home with your whole belongings". Charlotte said as she hugged Ariana very tight.
  • " chill babe, I'm here now and everything is fine". Ariana replied. "Where do you stay now and did you get lucky to find a rich dude"?. Charlotte asked looking at her bestie suspiciously.
  • "oh you're so funny, I got a job as a maid for a grumpy guy I met at school". Ariana said and laughed as she sat down on a barstool . "hey Ari you're not working today"?. James asked as sighted Ariana.
  • " naa and I don't think I would keep working coz I got a job where I live now". Ariana replied to James who nodded and smiled his joy for her. "So tell me already how you ended up with a school fella". Charlotte said with a giggle.
  • Ariana explained her ordeal with Fiona and watched as Charlotte fussed about seeing Jayden . " is handsome, does he like dark haired girls?". Charlotte questioned eagerly.
  • ''oh please you trying to pair me with that bastard is a no-no". Ariana said shaking her head sideways. "You don't need to get worked up, I was asking so I could try shooting my shot at him". Charlotte replied to Ariana who almost rolled on the ground with laughter.
  • " you mean, you wanna date my extremely rich and snobbish boss"?. Ariana asked after laughing. " yea and so what?". Charlotte retorted with a frown making Ariana burst into a fit of laughter all over again.
  • "Sorry to burst your bubble but that boss of mine is so allergic to girls". Ariana said. " what do you mean, if he's allergic then how would you be blue to drag him."? Charlotte asked with confusion.
  • "No not that way. I meant to say he hates ladies and always snubs them . I have a feeling he's gay". Ariana whispers the last part.
  • " what, you mean he lives dicks rather than pussies ?". Charlotte whispered back with a wide eye.
  • "You're lucky then, you can feel safe in the house". Charlotte said.
  • " I've got to go now Charlotte, I'll come to visit you any time I'm chanced". Ariana said as she hugged her friend and left the restaurant and return to her boss's cage of a house.Mirabel woke up early and headed to the movies set where she had a role before she went for "Celebrity Interview " a TV show in which questions where asked about the celebrity life. "Good morning Mirabel". Nina her manager greeted . " good morning Nina , can we get start already?". Mirabel asked . "yea sure, your make up is okay . you can go on the set now". Nina said as she checked her face and body . " that's Mirabel the actress whore". Stephanie Ryan , a rival and top actress said to the her group of young artists . " she looks so innocent yet so terrible". A new actress who was trying to get famous said . "she's so cheap , our Stephanie would never stoop so lowand that's why our Miss Stephanie would always be better than her and get more roles and endorsement deals. Sometimes sleeping your way doesn't help or have any impact , so it's advisable to work diligently and have respect for your Superiors". Mia, Stephanie's cocky manager said raising her head up . " always smiling at directors on the set but sleeping with them at night". An actor said pointing at her. Mirabel noticed the set was unusually quiet and there was tension in the air. "Omg, look at what a blogger posted". Nina said as she scrolled on a picture of mirabel standing in the lobby of Stirling hotel which she saw online. " Popular Mirabel George smiling on sets but sleeping with directors at night just to get lead roles ". Nina read out with shock. " look I don't give a fuck about what the netizens think or what any blogger posts, lets just cover all the schedules I have today. I'm the type of celebrity who doesn't care about any news that has no meaning ". Mirabel with a defiant attitude ignored all the remarks and jokes made at her expense and acted her role without mistakes and got appraisal from the director which got everyone talking again. "She's so slutty , why can't Miss Stephanie be the lead role instead , I do not like her one bit ". Tiana, a new actress said . " don't get stressed up, I left the role for her. I don't need to tint my image with her bad behaviour and besides I'm on a low key now, I'm giving her the space to become popular but if she miss uses the opportunity, I would get her out of this set immediately ". Stephanie said with pride as everyone looked at her with envious eyes. " Mirabel, we have to do something about this scandal. You've lost two endorsement deals". Nina said with sorry as she ended the last call. "Look do anything you wish . Anything that has to do with the internet doesn't have any impact on me , I don't give a fuck about what any fan says about me , I have no business with the internet". Mirabel said with a wave of her finger as she left the movie set in her car with her manager beside her. " the head manager is call". Nina said with a voice filled with panic as she hurriedly picked the call. "Yes sir..... We would do something about it sir............ I would have it cleared very soon.............I promise to do something sir". Nina said as she ended the call and tries to think of ways to end the scandal. " what the fuck did Kate post "?. Nina shouted as she showed Mirabel what Kate posted. " The sister I grew up with isn't the slutty type but I guess fame and wealth could make people do the extreme". Kate posted on her Twitter page . "seems like Kate wants to roll in the mud". Mirabel said getting angry coz she was the one who invited her for the authors hangout. " lots of netizens are defending her and throwing shades at you. Did you have a fight with Kate coz I know she's really jealous you got to get the lead role and she wasn't offered any role?. I really need to have a good talking with Kate, she doesn't expect her poor acting to be more preferable than your excellent one ". Nina said with horror as she checked the comments as a fight ensures between Mirabel's fans and Kate's fans. And you have a show today, if something isn't done your show could be cancelled or more endorsement deals could get cancelled ". Nina said as she continued scrolling. " I'll send a screenshot and a voice note to you , post it on my page and caption it with . "Kate seems to have forgotten that she invited me to the hotel and I spent the night at home not at any director's bed". Mirabel said with a mischievous smirk. " wow that's really brilliant, it'll make everyone beg you and get more deals which means more money for me". Nina said with excitement as she posted what Mirabel had said. "Omg , your fans have increased by two million followers". Nina said with excitement. " Geez , everyone is really going crazy and lots of people are blaming Kate and the blogger, you turned the table around so perfectly. Working with you is so easy and stress free, I didn't even bribe anyone or get the media to publish it before it all turned around ". Nina said with a look of pride. " I'm so proud to be your manager ". Nina said getting emotional . " if you're proud why not increase my payment". Mirabel said with a grin. "Humph , just a compliment and you're growing wings , I'll make a mental note not to compliment you again". Nina joked as she turned her face and burst into laughter with Mirabel.
  • " what the fuck went wrong. Why did my followers reduce so drastically ". Kate said with anger as she threw her phone on the couch. Ma'am Mirabel posted a screenshot and voice note of you inviting her to the hotel". Andrew, Kate's manager said with a look of panic as Kate started throwing things at him. " you fool, I told you to make a scandal that would tint her image not brighten it". Kate complained as she looked at her manager with disgust. "Ma'am I did as you bade me ". Andrew said with sorrow as he tried to dogde the objects hurled at him. " look you fool, Mirabel has 35 million followers and I'm struggling to keep the 5 million I have ". Kate said with anger as she checked the comments. " dig up any old picture and send it to my DM now!" Kate scowled as her manager scurried for his tablet. "My manager was at fault to release such false and terrible lie about my sister. I sincerely apologize everyone, I'll get a new well trained manager. Big sorry to my lovely little sis Mirabel". Kate posted on her page as everyone attacked her manager and few defended her.
  • " Seems like Kate is trying to use you to get few followers ". Nina said as she laughed at Kate's post. " typical Kate, blaming others and justifying herself". Nina said with a smile. "I'm ready!!". Mirabel said as she stood up and showed Nina her make up. " so pretty ". Nina complimented. " let's get going we wouldn't want to keep the eager guest waiting". Mirabel said as she picked up her bag and left in a blue tight flowing gown with a cut from the toe to her tigh, exposing a little of her skin. She went in her car to All News TV station where she got lots of fans admiring her and lots of cameras taking pictures. "Mirabel, is it tire that you sleep with directors to get roles?". A reporter questioned hurriedly as was taken inside with guards protecting her. " Thanks a lot for honoring our invitation ". Ann the host said as she hugged Mirabel. " okay everyone we're live in four .... Three. ....two....one". The director said as they started the show. "So nice to have you on the show Mirabel". Ann greeted with a pleasant smile. " its so nice of you to invite me for a show". Mirabel replied back with a beautiful smile. "So Mirabel , lots of fans would like to know personal things about you... Say a description of yourself". Ann said as she checked the comments on her tab. " weelll... What can I say , I'm 22 and I'm single , I've dated a guy in my school days and believe me I've gat nothing to write about it". Mirabel concluded with a hearty laugh. "Wow , I'm also thinking the same coz school love is the beat and can be the worst". Ann said. " yea it gets all nasty when you no longer want it anymore". Mirabel added with a nod . "so have you ever been taunted at school, do you have a nickname, and tell us about your most embarrassing scene". Ann said. " Okay, yea I've been taunted twice at kindergarten for peeing in my uniform,. I was nicknamed Wet pants and my most embarrassing scene was when I was asked to perform a poem at kindergarten. Though I do not remember having all theses memories but my father made a video of the school play and used it to make me laugh whenever I was angry coz it was as funny as hell". Mirabel said laughing. "Okay , tell us about what happened". Ann asked. " well I was in front of everyone and I was just too shy and scared to speak , so I wet my pants and ran out of the stage with my friends laughing and it was just so terrible". Mirabel said looking sad. "Awwn you don't have to feel bad ,we al have stories to tell". Ann comforted . " yea we all do ". Mirabel. " so a fan is curious if you had a fight with Kate or her manager because of the scandal that came up few hours ago?". Ann asked . "well , I don't have a feud with anyone, but if her manager has any problem with me ,I guess he's supposed to come straightened it out and not use tricks to tanish my image". Mirabel said with a straight face . " So what's your ideal, like do you believe it's her manager or it's Kate?". Ann questions. "Well, I don't know what to believe but if anyone tries to tint my image, I would take that person on a long journey of regret. I'm a very cool person but when it comes to people trying to hurt or do any damage to me , believe me I'm vicious". Mirabel said with a cold smile.
  • The interview continued as Ann asked lots of questions which the fans were very curious about and the show ending briefly with Ann and Mirabel laughing greatly and signing few autographs as the directors complemented her performance. " she's so calm and humble". Ann said to the manager who nodded. "I knew it would be a great idea to invite Mirabel alone without Kate". The director said . " Kate is so full of her self and would demand for outrageous things". Ann said as she left and hugged Mirabel who was leaving already.
  • "You really did great there". Nina said as she and Mirabel entered the car. " thanks I was trained by the best manager ever". Mirabel said with a mock bow. "When we have any board meeting , please do remind me to boast ". Nina said teasingly. " hello, Mirabel George manager on the phone and you". Nina said as she answered the call. "You want to offer an endorsement deal... She's filled for the week how about next week..... Okay I'll check my messages ... Thank you". Nina said on the phone. " I have new deals and I don't get any time off next week right?". Mirabel said shaking her head. "No darling this isn't just an endorsement deal, The producer on the phone is .....Charles Dave...". Nina said with a scream as they both laugh. " yea baby , Charles wants you to be on the new movie he's about to create ".Nina said . " wow, Charles inviting my for an interview, I was always the one who goes for interviews and many times I wouldn't even get picked!". Mirabel said . "we would celebrate next week when we know if you would be in the movie or not". Nina said as the car drove to Mirabel's garage. " and we have an appointment with the board tomorrow, don't be late or you would get your ass lots of punishment". Nina said as she got out of the car and left in her own car.Tiredly Mirabel walked sluggishly to her apartment and went to her room and fell into a deep sleep.
