Chapter 7

  • Christopher woke up with an unusual headache, he reluctantly dragged himself up from the bed, he did his morning rituals and prepared for work.
  • Chris found it hard to sleep last night as he kept on thinking about Naomi Browne, the mysterious lady who effortlessly stole his heart. The only thing that kept him sane was the fact that he assured himself that Ruben was going to get all her information for him today and he would be able to reach out to her. He didn’t mind taking time off work and travelling to wherever she was to see her.
  • Christopher got to his office and buried himself with work. He was interrupted halfway through when the intercom buzzed. He pressed the receive button to hear what the person on the other side had to say.
  • “Sir you have a visitor.” Jessie, Christopher’s secretary announced.
  • Christopher thought it was Ruben so he replied. “Let him in.”
  • “It’s Miss Vivian, Sir.” Jessie corrected.
  • Christopher grumbled softly upon hearing his secretary’s reply. He didn’t remember inviting Vivian to his office. In fact, he had warned her to stay away from him.
  • “Let her In Jessie, Thank you.” He replied reluctantly.
  • Almost immediately, his office door was opened and Vivian walked in.
  • Vivian Matthews was a fashion mogul and a very successful entrepreneur. She was the only female child of her very rich parents. She was classy and everything about her screams money and perfection. She kind of had a good heart but was always obsessed about what she wanted. She was a role model to many young women and men were always running after her but she wasn’t interested in any of them as she only had eyes for Christopher Ryan Smith.
  • No doubt Vivian was a very beautiful woman, the problem was just that Chris wasn’t attracted to her. He wanted Naomi.
  • “Hello, Chris.” She greeted him with a polite smile before taking a seat opposite him.
  • “Why are you here?" He asked with a stern voice.
  • “You failed to pick up my calls and neither did you reply to any of my messages so I had no choice but to come to see you in the office.” Truly, Vivian called Chris yesterday but he refused to pick up her call and he didn’t even bother to read all the text messages she sent to him.
  • “Didn’t you miss me? I was hoping you would be happy to see me.” She said with a frown on her face, trying to hide her hurt.
  • Chris sighed and then he spoke. “What do you want Vivian? As you can see I’m very busy.” He pointed to the documents that were on his desk.
  • “I’ve got good news for you.” Vivian smiled which amazed Chris because he had never seen her smile so bright.
  • “For me?” He rephrased and she nodded immediately. “I’m Pregnant Chris; You’re going to be a father.”
  • Christopher stopped typing on his laptop and looked at her in shock. He opened his mouth to say something but nothing came out. His heart rate increased, his face turned pale and his hands started shaking in fear.
  • “Please tell me you’re joking,” Chris voiced out after a while.
  • Vivian knew he was going to doubt her so she came prepared. She handed him her doctors’ report which confirmed she was pregnant. Christopher collected the white envelope from her and quickly went through it.
  • The report confirmed she was truly pregnant. Chris placed the report on his desk and he buried his face in his hands. The result stated that she was four weeks pregnant. He did the calculation, it was exactly four weeks since he woke up naked on the same bed with her.
  • “I can assure you the baby is yours. I’m willing to undergo any form of DNA test to prove it to you.” She said In all confidence.
  • Christopher sighed and ran his hand through his hair harshly. How did he not see all this coming? All the advances she made to him in the past was for this purpose. To get pregnant with his child and trap him forever.
  • “You know this is pretty unfair Vivian!” He stood to his feet and raised his voice at her. Anger was an understatement for what he felt.
  • “You knew I never liked you, you knew I was never interested in you and I will never be. You seduced me which I never gave in to and you went all the way to drug me so we could have sex and you can get yourself pregnant. How can you be so cruel?”
  • “Hey, Don’t raise your voice at me okay. You had too much to drink that night, I seduced you and you fell for it. Now that I’m pregnant, man up and take up the responsibility. I won’t give birth to my baby out of wedlock so you better calm down and let’s set a date for the wedding. I want us to have the wedding before I start showing. I don’t plan on looking huge in my wedding pictures.”
  • “Can you listen to yourself, Vivian? Just listen to the rubbish that’s coming out of your mouth. How cruel can you be? Do you want us to raise a child In a loveless marriage? What example will we set for him or her when we do nothing but fight all the time. I don’t love you and I’m never going to marry you. As for our child, I’ll take responsibility if he or she is mine and we can share custody.”
  • “As I said, my child wouldn’t be born out of wedlock. Since you’re nervous about getting married, I think I’ll have to plan our wedding all by myself. But first of all, I have to tell your parents the news. It’s only fair that they know they will soon be grandparents.”
  • “Just get the hell out of my office Vivian.”
  • “Get outttt!” He shouted at her. Vivian gave him a sad smile before she majestically walked out of his office.
  • Christopher walked towards his window for some fresh air. He felt as if someone was choking him. He wanted to cry but tears wouldn’t solve anything.
  • Even though he was a playboy, he never found Vivian attractive enough to have sex with her. He knew she was obsessed with him but he ignored her. Christopher and his family attended Vivian’s father’s birthday party which was four weeks ago. He didn’t want to go but his mother forced him to because his dad and Vivian’s dad were business partners.
  • The next day, Christopher found himself naked on Vivian’s bed with her arms wrapped around his waist. Saying he was disgusted would be an understatement. He knew she put something in his drink so she could have her way with him. But unknown to him, Vivian had her own plans, she knew if she got pregnant there was no way he would refuse to marry her.
  • Now that she was going to tell his parents about the baby, no doubt they would insist he gets married to her but how can he get married to someone he doesn’t love? Someone who’s presence he cannot stand?
