Reine exited the airport with fatigue written all over her face. It was an eight hours flight. She was naturally exhausted such that her schooled expression couldn hide it.
But her excitement couldn be contained. She has been out of the country for five years, for the five years she had only visited once.
Although its just five years it felt like thousands of years.
She rushed to hail a taxi when she bumped into a little one. Her gaze trailed to see a chubby little girl. She was as exquisite as a doll with a bang covering her snow-white forehead. Her pouty lips widen to form a cute little smile. Displayed such exquisite dimples she had on her chubby chin.
Reine felt all the buildup walls surrounding her fragile heart collapse. She couldn resist the temptation to pat her, she reached out and gently pat her on her head.
She crouched down to her height to have better look at the little beauty.
The little cutie made her remember Justin and missed him even more, she hoped their child would be as cute.
”Whats your name? ” Reine inquired in a low gentle voice but loud enough for her to hear
The little Miss withdrew a little cute pink notebook with bunny ears from her side pocket and scribed on it. ”Ariana ” the name read. Her eyes were sparkling and her chin glistering pink as she shot Reine a pleasant smile
Was she blushing, ”Ariana you are beautiful and you have a beautiful name too ”
”My name is Reine by the way and where are your parents Ariana? ” Reine asked
Ariana didn reply but made a hand gesture pointing to the east. Reines eyes naturally darted towards the direction of the east but there was quite some number of persons, hence she couldn make out which were her parents.
”How old are you Ariana ” she continued to ask
Like before, Ariane gestured her hands to 5. then shot her a smile again, Reine immediately realize, that the little child was mute.
Her heart pierced for the little girl, how cruel was the creator to have made such a cute little girl a mute?
”Ariana, can Reine hug you? She wants to hug you. ” Reines ocean blue eyes couldn contain her admiration and doting for the little girl. Her lips were patted to form a slight smile
Arianas little eye searched Reines ocean blue eyes as if looking for an answer. After a while, she gave her a nod as an affirmation. Reine spread her arms and drew the little girl into a tight hug, she was careful for the fear of crushing her.
She could smell the faint fragrance of baby wash from the little cutie. It dispelled all her worries and made her relax. Seems she also needed a hug. Reine was lost in the little girls embrace when she had a harsh voice above her,
”Who are you? ”
Reine looked up to see an angry woman shooting daggers at her. She appeared to be in her late twenties. She shares no resemblance with Ariana she still guessed it was Arianas guardian.
Reine shot her an embarrassed smile and hurriedly let go of Ariana and rose to her feet.
Ariana sprinted to the strangers side and hid behind her peeking at Reine with her slightly blushed chin.
”Hello, I am Reine ” Reine introduced stretching her hands forward to the woman
The strange lady scoffed at her hands in front of her and glared at Reine with disdain. She cast Ariana in front of her and aggressively dust her body dispelling all traces of Reine.
”How many times do I tell you not to interact with people like her? ” The stranger scolded harshly
Reine felt a throbbing pain in her heart following the womans harsh words. Not because they were directed towards her but because the little cutie got scolded because of her.
Reine had grown a thick skin over the years with matters relating to her race. This was not the first time she was getting harsh comments as regards her race. She learned to live with it and accept and love her brown skin.
Over time she felt lucky to have it at least it made her stand out amongst lots of people.
The strange woman dragged Ariana along with her and walked out. Ariana trailed behind the lady while waving goodbye to Reine who in turn waved her goodbye with a smile.
After the little figure disappeared, Reine turned to wave for a taxi. she gave her address, got her luggage settled and she settled in.
It was going to take an hour and thirty minutes to get home. Reine couldn contain her excitement as she smiled throughout the journey thinking of how happy theyd react when they saw her.
Cindy Miller will probably hug and kiss the living hell out of her. She will go as far as forcing her to share her bedroom. They will most likely spend the night talking about everything.
Her aunt Pamela Miller will complain about how skinny she has gotten and force her to eat all her delicious delicacy. Shed force her to fill her in on the recent happening in her life.
Her uncle Robert miller hardly gives a reaction he will most likely react this time.
Above all she couldn imagine how her fiancée, Justin Brown will react to this, hed be the happiest. Recently, he complained about how much he misses her but couldn come over to see her because of the companys workload. She couldn wait, the ride home felt like an eternity to her.
After one millennium. The car finally came to a stop in front of a big white villa in an old villa district with nice greenery.
”Thank you ” Reine Miller greeted the cab driver and got out of the cab.
There have been lots of changes since the last time she visited. For example, the flower garden right in front of the villa. planted by her late mother had dug out and finely interlocked. one could hardly tell there was a mini garden.
The decoration and layout of the living room has changed, she almost didn recognize the living room.
The living room used to be simple yet stately, now it is all shades of complication it was classy in a showy way. it didn suit the taste.
After the death of her parent, she suggested they change the layout of the mansion to their taste. As she allowed them to live in the mansion. but they were satisfied with the state of the house. Seems they change it after all
The living room was unusually empty. She specifically choose to come back on Sunday because she was sure they will all be available. Robert rarely goes to work unless it is an emergency. They spend their Sundays in the living room chatting, it was a weekly routine here at the mansion.
A lot has changed in the past five years.
Reine was about to head upstairs when she heard noises emanating from the dining area. The foyer separates the dining room from the living room, it was across the foyer.
Reine tip-toed to the direction of the living room with her hands placed on her mouth to seal it from making a wimp.
Millers family gathered around looking at something interesting beaming with joy. She curiously peeked to see what had caught their interest. And saw a silhouette of a man kneeling before Cindy and her she wore the best expression.
Cindy wore an exposed, red evening gown that complimented her snow-white skin. Her ass-length hair was neatly packed in a ponytail.
Reine admired her beauty she felt proud knowing such beauty. the dim blue light emphasized her fine lines and blushed chin making her look exotic.
Something was going on, it seemed like a proposal
