Flower Boy – Episode 45


(Kiss her. Oh no! Don’t kiss her )

Anthony’s POV

I was amazed and awed at the beauty of Nancy. I never knew she is this beautiful

We walked out of the studio after I’d settled their managers. I called my driver to bring in one of my best car from home.

He came after few minutes and we hopped inside the car. He drove Nancy and I to the show

We got down from the car and all eyes were on us.

Then we started hearing countless rumours from crowds around

Omg! Flower boy

Jeez! Finally I see him

Please sign my autograph sir

Jeez! He’s too handsome

That girl is probably his girlfriend

See his blue eyes, gosh! It’s driving me crazy

Flower boy ….cries and faints

Many rumours and dramas stared happening from the crowds as we marched in

The crowds were too much on us but the security men present guided them from touching us , I felt pathetic for the girl that saw me and fainted

We were escorted in by the security men present , we were led to sit at a glorious and adorable place at the back of the stage

There was a plasma television placed before us where we can watch the performance of other singers on stage

I was given the time that we will sing so we can prepare

“We singing by 3:0 clock am” I said to Nancy

“That’s too far, why? Why not this evening ?” Nancy asked freely

I turned my head at her and wondered what gave her so much freedom to speak to me that way.

Or could it be because I said she is prettier than Donna. Does that mean she must take it for granted

I ignored her but I felt somehow, I do not want to ruin this night for us. I want her to sing well so I better keep the conversation going

But she shouldn’t take it for granted though

“The flower boys is one of the most rated record label, many of the audiences will be waiting for us to perform . If we perform early, many people might be force to leave since one of the artiste they wish to perform life has performed ” I said

“Thanks for taking your time to explain to me sir”

She said respectfully and keep watching the stage through the plasma

Better, she is now beginning to respect me in her words. I hope she doesn’t ask anything again so I can enjoy this show . I really hate ladies not to talk of conversing with them except my Donna

“Sir, but many people do not know me, they may be rumoring something negative ” She said

“Something negative like what?” I asked

“Erm…that I’m probably your girlfriend” She replied

“What’s negative about that? Let them say that, it will make any lady crushing on me to stop the crush” I said and she blushed

Why did she have to blush. She is kinda happy that people will be carrying stupid rumours after the show that she is my girlfriend

I can’t imagine. A poor babysitter for that matter

We kept watching many artiste performing

I turned at her and I saw her dosing when it was around 12am , just three hours to our performance

“Hey young lady, why are you dosing?” I asked

She ignored and unconsciously place her head and her puffy eyes on my shoulder

I watched her head and wanted to push her head away but I notice her hair. It smell nice and it’s very beautiful

I Kissed her hair in my mind but I snapped myself back to life. How can I ever think of kissing her hair

I ignored her hair and was forced to look at her head again.

Do I love her? I think I do. Yes.

No! She is a babysitter. Anthony , come to your senses, she is just a baby sitter

Yes, a poor one at that. I can’t imagine

Poor people irritates me so much but I feel comfortable around this poor girl. For me to have allowed her place her head on my shoulder

Around 1: 0 clock am . I was busy enjoying the show when she suddenly raised her head

I turned at her and watch her eyes , her face is really beautiful but she is poor, I shouldn’t have seen that

I turned my head to the television back and she placed her right palm on my shoulder

I turned to my shoulder and turned at her

I wanted to ask her what the meaning of all she is doing

“Take your poor hands from your shoulder” I commanded sternly in my mind but I can’t say it out

I don’t know why, a part of me was actually enjoying her palm on my shoulder

But her face was still puffy and red

She keep dosing and moved closer to me. And brought her head closer to mine as she keep dosing

What the hell is wrong with this babysitter? Can’t she just postpone the sleep till we get home

I wanna yell at her but I can’t. I find it hard to even scold her

She was trying to open her puffy eyes as she keep looking at me like I’m a ghost

My eyes suddenly met with her pink lips , very soft from the look and sexy , I saw myself in my mind giving her another kiss, that will be the second kiss.

Oh no!

Common!this girl is tempting me . Why? I may get angry and kiss her now

No, I better not get angry so I won’t kiss her. I took my head away and brought it back again

I watched her lips , Gosh! I may kiss this thing I’m watching. I’ll get angry and kiss her now. Somebody should tell Nancy to better wake up cus I may get angry and kiss her

“No, Anthony, don’t kiss her , I trust you, now face front” I said to myself

I try to watch the ongoing show In the plasma TV but my concentrations are just being directed to the imaginations of I kissing her sexy lips , I want to stop imagine right now but I can’t even help it

I turned my head and I saw her still dosing and trying to control it. She is seriously battling with her puffy and red eyes

Suddenly , her head fell like it will fall towards my lap , I sense that may hurt her and I quickly helped her by placing my two palms on her check to help her head from falling

I was now holding her head in my two palms. And her face is even closer to mine

Her eyes is closed now, seems she is sleeping. If I kiss her , no one will know right? Not even her

I brought my lips closer to hers and she suddenly opened her eye and our eyes met , I feel like fainting and disappearing cus I sense that she may know what I wanted to do

But before I knew what was happening, she had closed her eye again

“Anthony, kiss her ”

“Anthony, don’t kiss her ”

“Anthony kiss her , you will enjoy it, I promise”

“Anthony, what if she opens her eye again”

“And what if she does, Anthony kiss her ”

“What if she discovers what you are about to do and slap you”

“She dare not, she is just a babysitter, she will surely enjoy it ”

“And what if she does not enjoy it”

“She will, try it, try it Anthony, try it Anthony”

Different part of me kept debating seriously in my mind as I stared at her sexy lips

“Kiss her Anthony” My mind said again and my heart beats faster than regular

“Anthony, For the last time, don’t say I did not warn you, she will slap you I promise”

“No she can’t. kiss her ”

The debate continues in my mind and my heart became heavier

I placed my lips on Nancy lips and kissed her, she opened her eye and saw me kissing her , she disengaged roughly and I could see the anger on her face, she gave me a hot slap.

My eyes rolled and I felt like I’ll faint

Can somebody tell me what is happening here?


( Third Kiss actually )

Anthony’s POV

I blinked my eye when I realized that I’d only imagine myself kissing Nancy and imagining her kissing me

I moved my lip closer to hers and placed my lips gently on hers. I kissed her softly but it seems she isn’t aware

I helped her place her head on my shoulder.

Around 2:0 clock am. I noticed my shoulder felt empty, I turned and realized that she had taken her head off my shoulder and she is now fully awake

I hope she doesn’t know that I kiss her cus I’ll feel somehow if she does

“What’s the time?” She asked

“Check it yourself” I reply coldly and turned my head back to the TV

“One hour to the show, sir, I’m kinda nervous . Are we the only one performing for real? where is Scot and Brian?” She asked but I ignored

After few minutes of watching the show together.

It’s really an interesting one. My eyes suddenly met at someone familiar coming up on stage

“Do you see that?” I asked Nancy nervously.

Damn it! Why did I have to ask her. She will feel important now and I do not want her to feel so close to me

“Yes I do” She replied happily and I nodded regretting badly for uttering that statement out

We both watched the person singing with three other men , it was a fabulous one.

“Sir, they sang well, But I know we will win” She said and I nodded

“I actually thought Karen cannot sing, I’m surprised at what I’m seeing though. She sings nicely” I said and checked my wrist watch

“Hey, it’s almost time, get set” I said and she started adjusting her dress

“Ladies and gentlemen, We believe you have being enjoying the show so far. Join me as I welcome the flower boys” The coordinator of the programme said and Nancy and I walked to the stage majestically

Everyone cheered us up with a loud clap, the whole place was full of hype but no doubt, many spectators are actually stunned cus they know the flower boys to be three cute boys , they will be wondering how we became a boy and a girl

I moved closer to the standing mic and Nancy did the same

We started singing , the more we sang , the more the crowds cheered us up

I noticed them carrying a woman out in a stretcher out of the show, it seems the woman get so emotional till she fainted. Many were crying at the fluent and deep lyrics of the song we sang

After we were done, we went back to the back stage and watched the next series of the programme

The time finally came for them to announce the winner of this year’s show

I really want us to win and that made me kinda nervous.

“Sir, I believe we will win” Nancy said freely

“I hope so” I replied coldly and kept hating the fact that she is feeling free to speak to me

“Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for taking out your time to attend today’s show , we are announcing the winner of the show now, stay turned

” The coordinator said and an advert was advertised

“Welcome back to the show , We are picking three winner for the show and I’m gonna start from the third position , Young Boss record label won the third position” He said and the crowd echoed and praised the record label that received third award

“The second position should go to either we or universal record label ” Nancy said

“Young lady, would you calm down and let me listen to this result ” I said sternly and she nodded gently

“Second best performance goes to BIB record label

” The coordinator said and everyone echoed and praised the record label that did well by getting the award for the second position

“And the first , the overall best performing record label goes to …. Goes to… ” He said and paused and the whole atmosphere was tense and silent like a graveyard

Everyone was anticipating to listen to whom the first position would go to

” Flower boys” The man said and everyone echoed in amazement and happiness.

I’m so happy that I turned at Nancy and smiled and jubilates by clenching my fist and shaking my hands

I feel like hugging her to celebrate but I controlled myself .

I guess she’s surprised to see me this happy cus she was smiling but also amazed at my expression of total happiness

This award had being a life long dream for me, I’m happy I was able to receive it even without my brothers , though I must confess that I miss them but It’s great performing with Nancy

The third and second best performer were called out and awarded respectfully

“Flower boys, kindly step out for your award” The coordinator said and I stood happily

Nancy stood gently and followed behind as I walked to the stage before her

“Congratulations” The man said

“Thanks sir” I replied with a smiling face

“We know the flower boys to be three males , Anthony, Brian and Scot. This is Anthony, where is Brian and Scot and more so, who is this lady cus rumour has being spread that she is your girlfriend ?” the man asked and I smiled

I faced the crowd squarely and everyone was anticipating for my response

“Brian and Scot are quiet busy, I’m sorry for that. The lady here is Nancy, she is my …” I said and paused

“Babysitter” I said in my mind but I think that will make her look ridiculed before the public

“Fake girlfriend ” I said in my heart but I reasoned that it’s not cool too, this man will further ask me what I meant by fake girlfriend , I do not want unnecessary interview this night. I just wanna collect this award and walk out peacefully

What name should I call her now

“Girlfriend” I said and rumour fills the air instead of sound of happiness, I wondered why but it occurred to me that many ladies crushing on me and hoping that something can work between us someday actually feel bad that I have a girlfriend not knowing that I was only lying

Over my dead body will I ever have a common baby sitter as a girlfriend. That will be so ridiculing

“Thanks” The man said and Awarded Nancy and I, We were happy and many people were happy for us, I was waving in the air greeting everyone and signalling to them that we are about going

“Sorry, Mr Anthony” one of the judge said and everywhere went silent like graveyard

I turned at the judge that called my name

“You said Nancy is your girlfriend , but you didn’t act like one, there is no romantic display before you guys here, should we believe that you are lying sir?” He asked

“I’m not , she is” I replied and hoping that the man will stop the questions

“Prove it” The man said and my face dropped

I moved closer to Nancy and gave her a false hug and maintained a false smile on my lips then I turned at the judge

“Anyone can hug anyone, do something deeper with her” The judge said

“I can’t have s*x with her right here sir ” I said and everyone chuckled

“I ain’t talking about sex, kiss her , if you do , everyone and I will believe you truly meant what you said by referring to her as your girlfriend

” of course I can always kiss her any time” I said and turned at Nancy, She was smiling at me but I was scared to kiss her

I moved closer to her but my heart was beating heavily , I feel like I’m gonna faint anytime

How do I escape this now and what kind of judge is this for goodness sake

I walked closer to her and stood before her. I was overwhelmed and I felt embarrassed that I’ll have to kiss her again

Her lips are sexy and firm as always , Kissing it a thousand time will not be enough

“Sir, I can’t kiss her” I said in my mind but I dare not say that out. The media will say I lie and that will make me loose fans , many people will think negative of me

I have to kiss her but why the hell can’t I grab her and kiss her. I’m just scared

She won’t reject, will she? Yeah. She won’t want to embarrass me publicly me here.

I summoned a little courage and moved my lips closers to hers, she closed her eyes and with the look on her face, she is probably expecting it

Jeez! Karen will be watching us from where she sat. Brian and Scot will be watching us from home, Karen’s father is probably watching us on TV too

Cus this show is worldwide

The fear of the world seeing us kissing overwhelmed me

What if Donna is not dead, what if she is watching me somewhere

“Judge , I can’t kiss her ” I said in my mind but I reasoned that the outcome maybe be worse

I summoned more courage moved my lips closer to hers. My lips landed on hers and we both kissed passionately before the world

The whole crowd stood and cheered us up.

“Second time you kissing me sir” She said softly

“No, it’s the third time actually”
