Bullied To Love by Amal A. Usman Chapter 32 by desirenovel
The next morning, I wake up feeling like the happiest woman alive but my joy is short-lived when we got a call this morning saying we have to leave for Sicily as soon as possible. Carlos has made a few problems in Sicily. He had one of papa’s bases bombed. The whole family is leaving for Sicily as soon as possible. I just finished packing Enzo and my luggage while he calls the pilot and makes other necessary enquires. I walk downstairs to let him know I am ready.
“Baby, I have everything we need, we can be on our way,” I say.
“Alright, let’s go. I will have someone carry our bags,” Enzo says while he takes my hand in his and walks outside to meet the driver.
While on our way to the airport, a thought comes to my mind, without thinking twice I voice out my opinions.
“Baby,” I say trying to get Enzo’s attention away from his phone.
“Yes mi amore,” he says giving me his full attention
“I thought since William, or Martino, is involved in all of this, won’t it be right to call him and let him know what’s going on.”
“I knew you would want that, so I called him and told him what’s going on. He said he would meet us at the airport.” Enzo says.
“Thank you,” I say hugging him feeling very grateful.
“You don’t have to mention it, amore,” he says, pecking my forehead.
“I am feeling very sleepy, my love. I can’t believe we are travelling at 4 a.m,” I say getting very comfortable in the car.
“Don’t worry, you can rest in the plane.”
“Yeah, I guess I will.”
We arrive at the airport after minutes of driving and get out of the car. I see William and Joan waiting in front of the plane, with William’s arms around her. Joan looks like she wants to sleep, and she might fall from how tired she is. We walk up to them and greet both of them, before we all enter the plane. After the flight has taken off, I don’t wait to be told before walking into the bedroom to sleep.
After hours of sleeping, I wake up to find out how far we have gone and to eat something. I walk out to see Enzo and William talking and laughing about something. It brings a smile to my face, knowing my boyfriend and best friend are finally friends.
“Good morning, everyone,” I say taking a seat beside Enzo.
“Good morning, amore,” Enzo says pecking my cheeks.
“Good morning, Val,” William says.
“How do you know my real name?”
“I am your cousin.”
“Oh, that’s true,” I say smiling.
“Where is Joan?” I ask noticing she is not here.
“She is probably still sleeping,” William says.
“Oh, maybe you should wake her up so she could get something to eat,” I say.
“Alright, I will,” William says and walks into the other room in the plane.
Some minutes later William and Joan walk out of the room, with Joan looking tired. I wonder why she seems so tired; I hope she is not sick.
“Good morning, boss. Good morning, Kat,” Joan says and takes a seat.
“Good morning Joan,” I say.
“Good morning Joan and you can call me by my name; we are not in the office,” Enzo says.
“Alright boss, sorry Lorenzo,” Joan says.
We arrive in Sicily hours later, during the flight Joan and I did a lot of catching up from the last time we spoke. We drop William and Joan at a hotel before going to Enzo’s house.
“Enzo, I was wondering why we went to a hotel the last time we were here, since you have a house here,” I say while on our way to Enzo’s house.
“It was under renovation,” Enzo says.
“Oh, that explains it.”
While on our way to Enzo’s house we get a call to meet at the base. There is something important we all have to discuss. While we detour, I call William and send him the address of the place. We all arrive almost at the same time.
We are sitting down in an office waiting for papa’s a**istant to come and explain everything that happened. A guy who looks like he can kill ten people with just one blow walks in behind papa.
“Good afternoon everyone,” the huge guys says.
“Two days ago, our weapons base was bombed. We lost our entire collection of weapons” The guy says without waiting for anyone to answer his greeting.
“Wow, that’s bad. What are we going to do now?” I say.
“I can get weapons from Spain. I can have it shipped as soon as possible, but it will take a little time since we will be shipping a lot all at once,” William says.
“That’s amazing William, thank you,” I say sending him a grateful smile.
“You are welcome.”
For the next two hours, we talk about how to get the weapons to Sicily as soon as possible and other critical matters. I step outside during the meeting to get some fresh air. While walking I see Joan sitting down. I walk up to her and sit beside her without saying anything. I am deep in thought when I hear Joan speak up.
“How do you do it?” Joan asks.
“How do I do what?” I say wondering what she is talking about.
“How do you live with the fear that one day you might wake up and he won’t be there?”
“You just have to pray and hope everyday will not be his last because there is no secret to how to deal with the fear,” I say.
“I guess that’s all I can do,” Joan says while taking a deep breath.
“Alright, enough sad talk. I thought if you are not busy tomorrow I could show you some places around Sicily.”
“Sure, why not, what time?”
“Anytime you see me at your door, because I won’t lie, I am exhausted and as soon as I get home I am going to sleep like there is no tomorrow,” I say smiling.
“I am with you on that one,” Joan says smiling.
“Thank you,” she says after a while of not saying anything.
“Oh, that was nothing, you don’t have to thank me,” I say while smiling. Joan is about to say something else when she is interrupted by William.
“There you are, mia principessa. I have been looking for you everywhere,” William says while walking towards us.
“I am pretty sure I have not been gone that long,” Joan says.
“Even so, I missed you,” William says, wrapping his arms around her while placing a kiss on her forehead.
“I miss you too,” Joan says turning to face him.
“I will see you guys tomorrow because I can see I am not needed here,” I say while walking away from the couple.
“Bye,” they both say.
“Bye,” I say, walking back into the building.
I find Enzo, and we go home, but not before stopping to get some food. Once we arrive at home I do not waste any time before I jump into bed like my life depends on it, and I sleep my way to my wonderland.
