NANNY


Ella ate quickly; she just
wanted to leave the presence
of the housekeeper and the
cook. They frightened her.

“I’m done”, she almost
whispered. Crystal took her hand and walked out of the kitchen. Ella climbed the stairs
slowly, all her excitement had
gone. Crystal couldn’t help but
notice how her aura had
changed completely.

Crystal turned the knob and pushed the door open. For the first time she noticed the color of
the bed sheet, it was sea blue
and had floral patterns on it,
she counted the numbers of pillows on the bed, they were four. She pulled Ella in and
shut the door.

“Can I sleep with you this
night?” Ella asked, she seemed
frightened of something. “Why? Are you scared of something?” Crystal was curious.

“Every night I feel somebody
is watching me in the dark,
that’s why I turn on the lights in my room every night, can I sleep in your room until I get
back?” Crystal placed her hands on her hips. She has never shared a room with
anybody, she was an only child, she always had her room to herself, even at Easton’s house she had a large room to herself. Why would
she share? She wondered.

She paced a little and looked at Ella’s face at the same time.

She imagined the little girl
lying next to her, imagined
her waking up in the middle
of the night and saying she
had a nightmare then the dreadful one, came to her mind, she imagined telling her
bedtime stories.

She remembered Easton’s warning


of no attachment. Truthfully
the little girl reminded her of herself.

“Don’t you want me in your
room?” Ella felt unwanted.

Crystal’s left hand went up to
her forehead, “Ella I want you
in my room, but not sleep over the night”, Ella’s eyes became misty “please Miss
Rebecca”, Crystal was already
loosing her guard, Ella looked
adorable and naïve.

Meeting Easton removed every form of naivety from her.

She sighed and pulled her closed to
herself, cupped her face with
both palms “you can stay
with me”, “really”, Ella’s eyes
brightened, “yes”, Ella’s arms went round her tightly “thank you Miss Rebecca”.
“You’re welcome”. Ella
released her grip on her and
ran out of the room. Crystal
wondered if she said anything wrong, she sat on the bed and felt the silkiness of the bed
sheet, she la!d back, inhaled
and exhaled trying to relieve
herself of the pressure she
felt, she looked at the clock that hung on the white painted wall, it was 8:30pm.

Her mind wandered until she
dozed off. Suddenly the door
opened, she sprung up ready
to defend herself, Ella looked confused, “it’s me”, when she saw Ella she sat back on the
bed. She noticed Ella had changed into purple pajamas, her feet wore fuzzy slippers,
she held her huge brown teddy that was almost her height.


Crystal could smell her
freshness. “You took your
bath?”

“Yes I did”, Ella got into bed
and pulled the covers over herself, she looked happy and content, “won’t you have
your bath also?”, “not yet, it’s
too early for me to sleep”, Ella
giggled “but I caught you
dozing”. Crystal felt a little embarrassed but covered it by joining her to laugh.

“Can I get a bedtime story”,
Crystal saw this coming, “no,
not today, maybe next time,
go to sleep”. Ella’s eyes dimmed “goodnight Miss Rebecca”, “goodnight Ella”.

She looked at how peaceful
Ella slept. She imagined a lamb
sleeping in a circle of Lions. Ella
was the lamb, herself, Francesca and Reuben were the lions. She took her eyes
off Ella and left the room. She
took a tour of the house; she
paid attention to everything
in the house. She could hear the faint voices of Francesca and Reuben coming from the
kitchen. For some reason she
thought they fit perfectly to
be a couple. Her thoughts
went to the old man, she wondered if he had eaten. She walked towards the kitchen
and broke into the conversation her stalkers
were involved in.

“Has the old man eaten?” “Yes boss, he has. I see you are doing your job well”
Francesca said with so much sarcasm in her voice. Reuben got close to her, he brought
his face really close to her, and she could feel his breath. She swallowed.

“Hey princess, you are here to take something precious. Do your secondary job, but don’t
forget your primary assignment”, she pushed him away and wiped her face, she
thought some moisture from his mouth splashed on her face.'

“If Easton had people like you, why did he want me to do this job anyway?”

“I would say its just training.

Maybe he wants to see how
you would perform without
attaching emotions to it”, he replied her. Everything about him irritated her. She left got
into the room. Somehow she felt peace in this room.

She had a peep into the bathroom,
she liked what she saw, she smiled and shut the door. She didn’t feel like taking her
bath. She just stripped down
to only her [email protected] and got
under the covers next to Ella.

She thought a whole month with Ella and her grandfather, the thought of staying that
long with the two termites in
the kitchen under the same
roof angered her a bit. Some
part of her had an obligation to protect Ella from them, the other part wanted to just do
her job and leave.

She wondered what Easton wanted her to do. She raised the covers up to her neck and switched off the lamp on the
drawer by her head side. She
closed her eyes and thought
about proving herself to
Easton before drifting to
sleep.
