DADDY’S GIRL (Episode 29)finale

*********

A WEEK LATER
“Are we going home?”
“Yes, princess… Or you want to stay here?” Arnold asked. He was carrying her as he spoke
“No!!” She frowned
“Good then let’s go” he laughed……
“Hey, Noldie!” Alex walked over to where he was standing and nudged him… He frowned
“I told you not to call me that!!”
“We can quarrel over that later… Look there..” He pointed to where Helena and a younger Lady were standing…

“Helena?”
“I heard she’s got a boyfriend” Alex lied
“What?” Arnold exclaimed as he dropped Fiona “but I thought she liked me”
“Apparently yes but you didn’t expect her to be waiting around for you when you couldn’t even express how you truly felt… I heard he’s a doctor too, works in this same hospital”
“I’m going to question her… Stay with uncle Fi, I’ll be back” he said and walks towards Helena…
“Come and sit with me little devil so we can watch your daddy go get his woman” he chuckled… She stared at him and frowned…

***********

“Hey, can we talk?” He said as soon as he gets near her…
She stopped talking to her sister and turned to face him.. “No!!” She answered and began to walk away
“What’s his name?” He asked making her stop
“Who?”
“Your boyfriend… I heard you found yourself one”
She laughed and folds her arms… She didn’t know who put those ideas in his head but she was definitely going to play along.

“Will knowing my boyfriend’s name make you put on more weight?”
“I know he works in this hospital”
“I only came here to remove the sling from my shoulder since I’m perfectly fine but that’s not a bad idea though. In fact, I’m going to see him right away” she said and begins to walk away but he grabbed her arm
“Let me go Arnold.. People are watching” she throws her eyes around and realized people including a few nurses were watching

“I don’t care!! Why did you have to accept that ugly doctor’s proposal?” He asked, a pang of jealously hitting him
“First of all, he’s not ugly. On the contrary, he’s very cute and well he’s a good kisser, unlike you” she teased
“Stop it, Helena!”
“Why? It’s the truth”
“This so-called truth hurts okay please,” he said rubbing his chest
“Why? Why should it hurt you? You don’t care about me so why should…”
He groaned “I care okay. I care about you… I love you, Helena… I love you”
“You love me? How convenient!”

“It’s the truth, Helena. I do love you… I was afraid I was going to lose you too… Well, I almost did..I really love you, Helena… I just don’t know why you had to accept another man’s proposal so soon”
She cocked her head to one side and smiled… He looked really handsome even with his sad face…
“Whoever told you I had a boyfriend was probably messing with you”
“Really? So… Ermm you’re available? Oh… Sorry… I meant you’re single?” He smiled sheepishly and she nodded…

Okay, so errm can I ask a question? Well, do you errr… Do you like me? .. I mean do you love me?…. No wait do you….”
“Whichever way you want to say it, Arnold, my answer is yes… I love you too” she smiled looking up into his heavenly eyes….. Only God knows for how long she had waited for such a moment……
“Errr so….” He trailed off scratching his head, turned and walked back to where Alex was seated…

The smile on Helena’s face vanished when she saw him walking back leaving her standing alone. Jerk!!!! Yet again he had played with her feelings and walked away… She sniffed and blinked back a tear and turned to walk out of the hospital when she spotted him walking back towards her, holding a rose flower…
She smiled… So he had gone to bring her a flower, She thought waiting for him to say something sweet when much to her horror and surprise, he broke the rose flower into two and then began to fold the broken stem into something that looked like a circle … Done, he lifted his head and stared at her….

“Listen, Helena, I never thought I would be doing this today much less now that’s why I haven’t bought a real ring yet….. But right after here, we will go to any jewelry shop of your choice and you choose any ring you want but for now…..” He paused and watched her mouth dropped open amidst cheers from onlookers as he went down on one knee and lifted the artificial ring he had made out of the stem…

“I know this is unusual but the thought of you belonging to another man made me take this hasty decision… Hey, this ring might not be real but it looks cute doesn’t it?” He watched her chuckle sightly as she wiped a tear…..
“I know I’ve been a jerk and…..”
“Yes I’m glad you know” she cut in and the people who had surrounded them laughed…
“But trust me, I was scared of letting myself love again but now I’m not… I want to love you as you deserve… I want to be the reason for your every sound of laughter and I want to be the first person you run to when you want someone to gossip with… I want you to be a mother to Fiona and well my unborn babies, my partner, my lover, my wife, my companion till I take my last breath Helena and….”

“You’re talking too much Arnold.. Go straight to the point!!” Alex shouted and he chuckled…
“Will you please marry me, Helena?” He blurted out
“B.. B…but we aren’t even dating” she stammered
“It’s not a problem.. I’ve heard women are experts at multitasking so you can be my fiancée and girlfriend at the same time”
“Yes!” she laughed
“is that a yes?… Oh no!!”
“What?”
“The ring!! It fell” he went on all fours and began searching for the artificial ring as his hands roamed the tiled floor…

“What? You misplaced my ring?” Helena screamed and knelt down by him and began searching for it too…..
“You’re careless Mr. Bempong. If I don’t find this ring then I’m not talking to you again.. Ever!!” She screamed in frustration…
“I found it!!!” he held it in between his fingers panting…
“yay!!!!” Helena squealed with joy as he slipped it onto her finger…
“I can’t believe we are quarreling even when I’m proposing” he chuckled…

“You started it… Anyway seems like your architecture skills goes way beyond… This ring looks cute though and i..” she trailed off when he pulled her closer and kissed her, softly at first and then with eagerness and urgency forgetting they were surrounded by curious people who were busily “awwing” and taking pictures of them…
“I just couldn’t stop myself from kissing you. Your lips looked tempting” he said after he broke away from their kiss and she blushed.

A YEAR LATER….
“Hey baby why the tears?” Arnold sat near his crying wife and gathered her into his arms…
“I told you I wanted beer and chips” she sobbed…
“But baby this food combination is weird and….” He didn’t finish when she sobbed louder… He sighed…
“Okay okay fine… I will go get you some beer and chips… Happy?”
“Happy!” She added and smiled wiping her tears…

Arnold walked downstairs into the kitchen, opened the fridge to take out a beer…..
Whoever said men don’t go through any stress when their women get pregnant probably knows nothing…Here he was today searching for a bottle of beer because his pregnant wife craved for it… Her mood swings were highly unpredictable. One minute, they would be cuddling and laughing in bed and the next, she would be mad at him for something he knew nothing about and before he realized, she would be crying…

Two nights ago, she had woken him up in the middle of the night at 2:00 am and requested for casserole claiming she had seen it on TV and felt like eating it…Only God knows how he managed to prepare such food for her at that time. Food that he never knew existed… Well, thank God for the internet and Google, he had found the recipe and prepared it for her…
Arnold sighed when he heard his wife crying… He quickly poured a few chips onto a plate, grabbed the beer as he runs upstairs…
“Coming baby!!!”

*********

“…so as I was saying….” Alex paused, took a sip of his red wine and turned his attention back to Fiona who was seated on his laps … “It is easy to get the attention of a man… You should start practicing it… You see, when you notice a boy in your class and you like him, don’t go about kissing and smooching him right away or else he will think you are cheap.. Try to drop a few hints to make him notice you and….”

“Alexander you dirty man with foul mouth!! Stop polluting my daughter’s brain…You even talk about smooching… You have a foul mouth, Alex. I wonder why we are still friends” Arnold frowns as he walks into the living room, adjusting his suit…
“Hey I was just teaching her a few tricks….seems you and your wife are busy smooching each other and you are making all of us get late for the event” he replied
“Just like you, even I have been waiting for her to get dressed… The grand opening of the hotel will begin in an hour’s time and… Whoaaahhh!!” Arnold exclaimed when he set eyes on Helena who walked down the stairs elegantly dressed in a shimmering black long flowing gown that hugged her waist downwards… Her growing baby bump showing a little…

“You look ravishing” he whispered when she stopped in front of him… She blushed…
“Alright alright, enough of the compliments. Let’s get going” Alex interrupted and began to walk out, pulling his fiancée out of the sofa “come, love”… He said to Sally who followed
“congrats Arnold, the hotel you and your team built is breathtaking. I saw it yesterday”
“Thank you love…it was possible because I had someone like you by my side” he kissed her…

“Can we go to my sister’s graduation ceremony today after we are back from the event?”
“Anything for you love”
“That’s why I love you”
“And I love you more and more each day despite your tantrums and unpredictable mood swings… You brought light into my life…you taught me how the little things in life matter the most… And with your help, I got my child back… Thank you, Helena, for giving me such immense joy and for this bundle of joy that will soon be born” he bent and kissed her belly…

“What about me?” A tiny voice asked and they turned to find Fiona behind them… Arnold pulled her closer and bent to her level…
“You? You will be a big sister soon and You’ll always be my princess. My girl… Daddy’s girl and no one would change that. Ever! I will love you till the end of time even after you are all grown and have your own kids”
“I love you daddy…” she wrapped her arms around his neck
“I love you more princess” he kissed her on the cheeks and hugs her tighter as Helena smiled broadly watching the father-daughter duo…….
