Birds chirping, their melodious voices singing morning glory, the fresh and cool air after the heavy rain
last night, the rising sun over the horizon, it was one of the finest day for Amanda Jackson, but she was
just too lazy to wake up.
She lazily stretched her hands out as she smiled lazily at the beam of light passing through the window
into her room. Today was such a fine day because everything that was going to happen today will be
the best that has ever happened to her over the past few years.
Her fiance was finally coming back from overseas and Amanda was a little bit nervous because she
didn't know how to face him after not seeing him for the last five years or so.
But why would she be nervous. After all they have grown up together. She chided herself for thinking
"Amanda, why are you still lazing around? You need to start getting prepared. Today Jason is coming
back, you know that apart from welcoming him, you are also getting engaged, right?" Her mom's angry
voice came from the corridor.
"Okay mom, I will be out in a minute, don't worry." Amanda groaned as she answered her mom.
Her family and Jason's family had know each other since a long time ago. She had grown up with
Jason and they could be considered childhood friends or rather sweethearts.
Her mom and Jason's mom were best friends for so many years and they so happened to be pregnant
at the same time, they had joked about bethroting their children if one gave birth to a boy and the other
a girl. Their families did not oppose because that will help keep the relationship of the two families
When Amanda and Jason were born, the two families were both happy because their dreams will come
true, since they were young, Amanda and Jason were always considered couples.
Thinking about their past, Amanda could not help but give a sweet smile, as it held her most innocent
and memorable experience.
She went to have a quick shower before putting on a simple dress to go and have breakfast.
She was living with her mom at the moment because her father had married another woman and they
had to divorce.
Although her parents were no longer together, the relationship between her mom and Jason's family
still remained, that is why the engagement was taking place as planned.
"Good morning mom!" Amanda kissed her mom on the cheek as she went to grab her breakfast.
"Morning Amanda, why have you not changed your lazy ways of always dragging things out? You know
you are soon going to be engaged and you need to start showing some qualities of being a good wife."
"I know mum, you can now stop nagging. I will do as you say. I have talked to dad, he will be picking up
Jason from the airport, and the venue for the party is already confirmed, I just need to head over when
it is time."
"It's good that your father still remembers that he has yet another daughter. I know that it was difficult
for you to choose between me and your dad but I'm glad that you did chose me." Her mom embraced
Her husband's affair had hit her hard. She had really sacrificed a lot back then for Peter Jackson but all
ended in a drain after he married another woman. The scar was still as fresh as if the events happened
"Don't worry, I know it has not been easy on you to raise me, but I promise I'm going to be a good wife
to Jason and I will always love you." Amanda returned the hug, as tears threatened to fall from her
"I know my daughter is the best, and mom will always be here for you."
In other Villa in city A, Vallarey Jackson, Amanda's step-sister, Ryan Jackson, Amanda's step-brother
and Juliana Jackson her stepmother were having a lavish breakfast together with Peter Jackson.
"Dad, is the plan still the same as we had discussed?" Val asked as she took a bite on her sausage.
"Yes dad, brother Jason is coming back, and we know that he is supposed to be engaged to Amanda
but that is just a cover to fool them. We know that my sister and him have been in a relationship for a
long time now and today is their engagement day." Ryan also inquired.
"Yes, the plan has not changed. Jason's family have long been fed up with Amanda and her mom and
they could not wait to get rid of those two. I will be going to pick up Jason later at the airport and we will
head straight to the hotel." Peter Jackson nodded.
"Have you notified Amanda and her mom?" Juliana asked.
"Yes of course, that was the plan with the Jason's family, she has to be there so she can learn the truth
to avoid future troubles."
"That's good. I could not wait to see that bitch's face as she sees what was hers being taken away from
her and she can't do anything about it. Also her mother, she always acts like she owns the world, I can't
wait to see her reaction, I bet it will be too good and entertaining." Juliana laughed with disdain as she
spat out her words without caring about maintaining her cool demeanor in front her husband.
Evelyne has always acted superior in front of her. Moreover, she was more beautiful than her and she
always felt inferior whenever she was next to her.
"Mom, don't say that, after all she is still my sister and my other mom. They are still part of our family,
after all they have the Jackson's blood flowing in their veins." Val, being the good and filial daughter
that she was, convinced her mom to remain cool in a polite and good manner.
Of course you could see that both Juliana and Peter were really pleased with their daughter.
But none of them noticed the vicious light that passed in Vallery's eyes.
Today will be the day I send you to your death dear sister, I have already taken everything that you care
about from you and there is nothing that you can do about it.....
