Can I love you
Rose: Dad what are you doing here?
Fred: (walks inside the apartment) You’ve got a nice place daughter.
Rose: I asked you a question, what are you doing here?
Fred: Relax darling. I don’t bite, I just came to say hi to my beautiful daughter. After all I’m still your father.
Rose: You don’t even deserve that title, I want you out of my house now or I’m calling the cops.
Fred: Oh. Don’t worry. I’m leaving now. I just came to show you something.
He brings out his phone and shows Rose a video of her mother in a cage suffering.
Rose: OMG! Mom! What did you do to her dad?!
Fred: (Laughs) Nothing my darling. You are in my way you know.
Rose: What are you talking about?! I left the city for you.
Fred: I know but you’re still the main obstacle. You and that thing you call your child.
Rose: Leave my son out of this.
Fred: Then stay away from Nigel. I’m giving you three days to cut all ties with him or even leave and I will spare your mother and son.
But if you don’t, I will kill your mother then your little bastard. I can’t let you get in the way of my plans.
Rose: Why dad? Why Nigel? You’re rich dad, he has never done anything to you. Why don’t you leave him alone? I thought you loved mom, how could you do that to her?
Fred: I’m not here for your sermons Rose, you’re not a saint either. You couldn’t do what I asked of you so don’t you dare stand in my way. I won’t spare you this time around.
Rose: I can’t leave Nigel.
Fred: Then prepare to see your mother die in three days.
Rose: I don’t care what you do to her, she’s not important to me.
Fred: Really? We’ll see about that. (Leaves)
Rose closed the door with a racing heart as she fell on the floor crying. Her father is the worst person she’s ever met for him to do that go her mother.
His own wife, she decided to tell Nigel everything. What’s the point of hiding it if it’s all about him?
Selena walked into the house still thinking about the horrible things Fred is doing. She never knew he could be so mean as to even make his own wife suffer.
She suddenly doesn’t want to leave Nigel or dupe him anymore. She only thinks of how to get Rose away from him so she could have him all to herself.
Selena: I have my own plans too Fred, don’t think you’re the only one with ambitions. We’ll see who wins.
Rose went to Nigel’s office after taking permission from work. At first she wasn’t allowed in but after calling Nigel they let her in Immediately.
She went to his office with a long face while some of the employees were busy staring at her and whispering to themselves.
Nigel: Hmmm…. You missed me too much that you couldn’t wait till I came back.
(He hugged her. )
What’s wrong Rose? Why the long face?
Rose: (Sobbing) Nigel…
Nigel: Hey calm down, no crying. Tell me what really happened.
Rose: My Dad is in Florida Nigel and he has my mother.
Nigel: But isn’t he her husband? I don’t get you.
Rose: No. He’s a beast. He’s hurting my mother and he threatened to hurt my son too if I don’t leave you.
Nigel: That’s it. I don’t care if he’s your father anymore Rose, I’m gonna kill him once I get my hands on him. I won’t sit and watch him lay hands on you or my son.
Rose: Please help me Nigel. We have to save my mom.
Nigel: I’m going to contact my trusted friend who’s a cop, we’re gonna rescue your mom my love. Don’t cry anymore.
Rose: I’m so scared for Angel. I don’t want anything to happen to him, I can’t survive knowing that my son is hurt.
Nigel: Nothing’s gonna happen to our son Rose, I’ll do anything I can to make sure Fred pays for everything he’s done to us.
Rose: I can’t believe dad could turn so cold and evil, he used to be so sweet and we were a happy family until he asked me to marry you. He was so ambitious, sometimes I wonder if he’s really my father.
Nigel: Fred has always been like that Rose, you guys just didn’t know it. My dad told me everything about him, he’s ambitious and very dangerous.
Rose: I feel so bad for my mom, she always supported dad. I don’t think she knew my dad was this evil, I’m so ashamed to be his daughter.
Nigel: It’s okay dear, we don’t really decide for our parents. They just decide to be who they want to be, if we could really decide, I’m sure I’d have never met you. I’d never be able to experience love so pure and profound, I love you no matter what Rose. That’s what matters.
Rose: I love you too Nigel. So much.
Nigel: I’m glad you made the right decision by coming to tell me and not deciding to leave.
Rose: I can’t do that. What’s the difference, both ways is like death for me.
Nigel: This is all gonna be over soon.
The door suddenly opens as Selena barges in.
Rose: uh-oh spoke too soon.
Selena: What the hell! Nigel What is this slut doing here huh?
Rose: Hey don’t call me that fat ugly poo looking face!
Nigel: Selena stop this immediately. What are you doing here without telling me?
Selena: What? I’m your wife Nigel, I have the right to come here anytime I want.
Rose: Yeah we’ve heard that story before.
Nigel: Selena please, I told you already. You’re only gonna hurt yourself more, just let me go.
Selena: I won’t. She can’t have you if I can’t, because like it or not you’re stuck with me forever.
Rose: You know what? I better leave you guys alone, I have things to attend to.
Selena: You’re gonna regret it bitch.
Rose: Call me that again and see if your face doesn’t trend on Facebook.
Rose: That’s it. I’ve had enough of you.
Rose lands a very hot slap on her face and a fight breaks out. They fought and pulled each other hair until Nigel separated them.
Nigel: Get out of here Selena.
Selena: You’re still gonna support her when she started it. You’re so mean Nigel. You’ll pay for this I promise you bitch.
Rose: You’ve not had enough huh?
Nigel: That’s enough Rose, Selena please go. I’ll see you at home.
Selena scoffs before storming out of the office, Rose also takes her bag to Leave.
Nigel: Hey why are you acting so mad?
Rose: I’m not mad. After all she’s your wife and I’m just an intruder.
Nigel: Stop doing this Rose, do you know how hard this is for me? I never wanted this to happen but look now, this last thing I need is to be rejected by my love.
Rose: (Sighs) I’m sorry. I got so angry I completely lost it, but I really am sorry.
Nigel: It’s okay Rose. I love you.
Rose: I love you too Nigel…..
Can I love you
Nigel got home in the evening to talk to Selena who’s still angry about the incident that happened before.
Anna and Jean are currently not in the house as they went to their other property to give the couple their needed privacy.
Selena is drinking in the living room and playing loud music, Nigel turns the music off.
Nigel: This is a house not a club Selena quit doing this.
Selena: It’s not like you care, I mean you no longer live here right.
Nigel: What are you talking about Selena this is my house.
Selena: Then come back and continue being my husband again. Don’t leave me for her, you can’t really trust her. What if she’s planning to finish what she didn’t finish the last time? Open your eyes and see the reality Nigel.
Nigel: Can I trust you?
Selena: What? What do you mean by that Nigel?
Nigel: I’m just asking if I can trust you since you said I can’t trust Rose.
Selena: It’s not fair that you’re treating me this way, all I’ve done is love you and you have so much distrust for me. I wish I could turn back the hands of time, I’d have not fallen in love with you and suffer like this.
Nigel: I’m not making you suffer Selena, you know I like you. I can’t feel more than that, my heart belongs to Rose. She’s already filled all the spaces left in my heart.
Selena: (Scoffs) I don’t believe in giving up or backing down. I don’t believe in no spaces left, my type of love says no one can have you if I can’t. That’s the truth.
Nigel: This is the reason you’re hurting so much Selena. That belief is stupid and selfish, you’re gonna end up alone if you don’t stop. Because you’ll still be chasing what’s not meant for you while the one meant for you passes you by.
Selena: Still I’m not giving up. At least not now, I’ll prove to you that you can love someone else even if she’s not Rose ( Walks away)
Nigel: (Palms his face) This will be harder than I thought. Gosh what do I do with her?
He picks his phone and calls Rose.
(On the phone)☎️☎️☎️
Nigel: My love, are you done with work?
Rose: Yes. I just need to attend to a few patients, I’ll be going in twenty minutes. What about you?
Nigel: I’m on my way to pick you up. Have you heard from Cathy and my son?
Rose: Yeah. We talked an hour ago and we agreed to meet at home. I miss my baby though.
Nigel: I’m on my way to pick you up now, just wait for me.
Rose: Alright I’ll be waiting.
He hung up and went upstairs to change before picking his car keys and heading out.
He got to the hospital and went straight to her office, just as he was about to enter he got a strange text.
He opened it and saw a shocking sight, meanwhile Rose came behind him and hugged him.
Nigel: (Startled) Ummm… Rose… Sweetheart… You’re here.
He quickly hid his phone in his pocket before she got to his front.
Rose: You sound off and you’re sweating under the AC. Is something wrong?
Nigel: No nothing is wrong. What makes you think that?
A text came to Rose’s phone, he snatched the phone from her before she could check it. And it turns out it’s the same text he received.
How will he tell her Angel and Cathy has finally been kidnapped and the restaurant has been destroyed?
Those kidnappers sent a picture of Cathy tied up with Angel in her hands.
Rose: Hey why did you collect the phone? What’s going on?
Nigel: Let’s go inside the office before anything.
Rose: Now you’re scaring me.
They went inside the office, he sits her down hoping she will take it calmly.
Rose: Now tell me what is going on.
Nigel: Rose you need to calm down first.
Rose: I am calm Nigel, just tell me.
He brought out the phone and showed her the text. She covers her mouth crying.
Rose: No. My baby, Cathy. How could he do this? My child is innocent and doesn’t deserve to be treated this way.
Nigel: I’m calling the inspector right now, we have so many enemies. We don’t know who it is but I won’t spare Fred if he’s involved.
Rose: Let’s go report at the station immediately. Let’s ask that guy arrested maybe he has an idea where my dad is.
Nigel: Rose… Don’t…
Rose: What? Why?
Nigel: He’s dead Rose, he was murdered at the hospital.
Rose: What?! By who? Why didn’t you tell me?
Nigel: I didn’t want you to worry yourself I’m sorry.
Rose: what do you mean by not worrying myself? I am the child’s mother and I deserve to know everything that is happening. You have to tell me everything not hide some from me. We’re gonna talk about this later but now we need to find my baby and my friend.
Nigel: Lets go tell the police.
Rose changed and they left the hospital for the police station.
💖At the station💖
Inspector Dave: We’re going to try all our best to get your son back. But who do you have in mind?
Rose: My father Fred Gonzalez. He promised to hurt my son today if I don’t leave Nigel.
Nigel: She’s right Inspector. The man is very dangerous and has a lot of officers working for him, so I’m thinking he has someone in this station too.
Inspector Dave: Yes and we’re working on it. We will figure out who the traitor is. Fred Gonzalez has many murder cases against him from many years ago which he got away with. This time I will make sure he pays for everything he has done.
Nigel: I’ll be expecting your call officer.
Rose: Officer I have someone else in mind.
Inspector Dave: Who miss Gonzalez.
Rose: Selena Owens.
Nigel: What? Rose don’t do that. Because you had a fight with Selena doesn’t mean she’d kidnap Angel. Stop it.
Inspector Dave: Are you sure of what you’re saying miss?
Rose: Yes. She threatened to get me and my son out of the way besides I think she’s working with my father.
Inspector Dave: That’s interesting. We’re going to call her here for questioning, but do you have a witness?
Rose: Nigel was there when she said it.
Inspector Dave: Mr Owens….
Can I love you
Still at the police station…
Rose: What is wrong with you Nigel? Why aren’t you talking? Say something?
Nigel: Do what you have to do officer, we have to leave now.
Inspector Dave: We’re gonna get back to you Mr Owens.
Nigel: (Stands up and shakes the Inspector) Thank you Inspector, please be fast with the investigations.
Rose: Really? (She walks out angrily)
Nigel: She’s still affected by the disappearance of our son.
Inspector: I understand Mr Owens.
Nigel: Okay. I’ll leave now
He walked out of the station and runs after Rose who is already leaving in anger. He catches up with her and stops her.
Rose: Let go of me pervert!
Nigel: What’s wrong with you my love?
Rose: Don’t you dare call me that you liar. You’re nothing but a liar. You were defending Selena knowing fully well she could have something to do with the disappearance of my son. I hate you.
Nigel: And I love you Rose. I wasn’t defending Selena, I just don’t want us to make a mistake by accusing someone.
Rose: You better find my baby Nigel, get my baby from her or I’ll make sure I press charges against you and her.
Nigel: Rose wait… darling I know how you feel right nowi but we don’t need this at this time. Please let’s stick together and support each other at this stage, we should focus on getting our son back.
She began crying.
Rose: I just want my baby back Nigel. I’m so scared that they might hurt him. What if they don’t feed him well? What if he gets sick? What if he’s crying all night?
Nigel: We’re going to get Angel back and whoever is involved will pay for everything. I promise you Rose. Let’s go home, you need to rest.
They walked home together, they went to Rose’s apartment to pick up a few things while he took her to another house. One of his houses which is filled with security, she is to stay there until everything dies down.
💗At Nigel’s Mansion💗
Selena is seen going to the basement. She stays there for a while before coming out.
She then dresses up and goes out, unknown to her a car followed her out.
She drives to the outskirts and stops in front of a strange house.
She got down and entered the house after looking around for a while, she was wearing sunglasses and a scarf to cover her face.
She met Fred in the living room drinking.
Fred: You’re late, what’s keeping you so busy.
Selena: Waiting for my husband to come home (Sits) Your daughter hardly let’s him stay home anymore.
Fred: She really thinks I’m joking. But then I have more important things to tell you.
Selena: Tell me.
Fred: Someone kidnapped Rose’s baby.
Selena: What? How? But wait… I thought we’re supposed to be happy, didn’t you order them?
Fred: Are you listening Selena? Do you know what this means?
Selena: I don’t understand…
Fred: (Stands up) We have a rival… Someone is on to us. Someone is acting before us and I’m not gonna let that happen. I will get to the root of this and that’s a promise.
Selena: Do you have anybody in mind who you suspect?
Fred: That’s not a problem, the police are after me now because my past case has been restarted by someone. One of my enemies, I think this same person abducted that baby so they’ll think I did it. Since I already threatened Rose. But I’m not giving up, whoever did this must pay.
Selena left there smiling at herself, well she is kinda responsible for everything. She filed a case against him and also kidnapped the baby with Cathy.
Once Fred is out of the way, she can get rid of Rose and have Nigel all to herself.
Selena walked in only to find Nigel waiting impatiently for her. Her heart skipped a beat as she saw the dark look in his eyes.
Selena: Nigel.. You’re home already.
Nigel: Where are you coming from Selena?
Selena: I went to see a friend.
Nigel: I know you don’t have any friends here in Florida so tell me the truth Selena!
Selena: I’m saying the truth! I went to visit an old friend.
He brings out some papers and showed her.
She stared at it shocked.
Selena: Nigel… Where did you get these pictures.
Nigel: If you don’t talk right now, I’ll do something nasty right now.
Can I love you
💗Continues at Nigel’s Mansion💗
Selena: I don’t know where you got this from but I don’t owe you an explanation.
Nigel: You don’t owe me an explanation? You’re really saying that at this time that my son is missing and you’re the main suspect?
Selena: Rose’s son is missing? I… I didn’t know. What really happened?
Nigel: You’re really gonna pretend you don’t know what’s going on Selena?
Selena: What are you talking about Nigel? Why would I wanna harm your child? How could you think so low of me?
Nigel: Stop this Selena! You have no idea just how angry I am right now. Fred Gonzalez was seen going to that same area in that picture a few days ago. Now today you’re seen going there to visit an old friend like you say, do you think I’m a fool?
Selena: I told you the truth Nigel, I don’t care if you really think that I’d hurt your son. If you think I have some sort of connection with Fred Gonzalez you’re absolutely wrong.
Nigel: You want me to believe that? This old friend of yours doesn’t have a name or identity? He or she never comes out of their house?
Selena: I’m really fed up of this. I’m being blamed for something I know nothing about, just because I love you?
Nigel: You said Rose was a gold digger, what if you’re even worse?
Selena: What?! Nigel How could you say that to me?
Nigel: I don’t know you anymore Selena, I can’t trust you. And I’m warning you, if I confirm you have something to do with my son’s disappearance or you’re involved with Fred Gonzalez… I’ll make sure you never see the outside world anymore.
He walked out on her while she fumed in anger hating Rose more.
Nigel left the house, she made sure no one is in sight before she went down to the basement where she’s keeping Cathy and Angel.
Cathy got up as soon as she came in, two men were there with them.
Cathy: You bitch! Do you have any idea how much you’re endangering this innocent baby’s life?
Selena: Why are you worried about a baby who is peacefully taking a nap?
Cathy angrily tries to attack her but the men hold her.
Cathy: You monster! What did you to Angel?
Selena: Like I said, he’s taking a nap so leave it at that.
Cathy: If anything happens to Angel, I swear I’ll be the one to kill you.
Selena: You and your stupid friend are in my way. Nigel is mine and you all are just making it too hard for me. I’ll get you out of my way one by one.
Cathy: Too bad cos Nigel loves Rose and will never love a psycho like you.
Selena: Shut up! If you annoy me one more time I will toss that baby out the window, kill you and that will be the end of this.
Cathy: Don’t you dare hurt Angel… Nigel will have your head.
Selena: That’s my problem and not yours, now one more word from you and I will make you have s*x with these rough guys. Try me.
Cathy spat on her face, Selena slaps Cathy and walked out of the basement only to bump into a maid who’s cleaning the passages.
Selena flinched and glared at the maid who’s now suspicious of her.
Selena: What are you doing here?
Maid: What do you mean ma’am. I work here.
Selena: Hey you better respect me. I’m the lady of this house and whatever i say stands.
Maid: But why are you sweating ma’am, and what are you doing at this side of the house?
Selena: This is my house and I can go anywhere I want whenever I want, get out of my sight you’re fired.
Maid: But ma’am I didn’t do anything wrong, why should I be fired?
Selena: Get out of my house before I call security to throw you out.
Maid: Alright then… I’ll leave but I’m not going anywhere until Mr Owens himself gives the order, I’m sorry he employed me not you.
Selena slaps her in anger.
Selena: How dare you speak to me in such a disrespectful manner? I’m Nigel’s wife and whatever I say will be final. I’m just your boss, our rights are the same.
Maid: I’ll leave… But I’m gonna inform Mr Owens about what I just saw.
Selena: What are you talking about woman?
Maid: I just saw you come out of the basement… You got scared when you saw me, which means you must be hiding something. I’m gonna call Mr Owens and tell him everything.
The maid started walking away, ‘you can’t reveal my secret’ Selena thought. She grabbed a nearby lamp and hits the lady on the head, the whole lamp shattered on the floor.
The woman fell flat on the floor without moving.
Selena: OMG! I killed her! You just killed a person Selena. What am I gonna do?
She quickly goes back to the basement to call the boys to help her carry the body away.
Luckily no maid came around that time.
She opened the back door and brings her car with the tinted windows.
They put the body in and drove away, she quickly cleans up the mess, the blood on the floor.
The boys threw the body at a roadside and drove off…
Can I love you
Nigel went back to the other house to stay with Rose who is suffering because of everything that is going on.
He met her sitting in her room staring at the ceiling and tears coming from her eyes.
He sat beside her and hugged her, he has a feeling Selena is up to something.
But he doesn’t have something big on her yet, if only his investigator could get more dirt on her.
Nigel: My love it’s okay, we’re gonna have angel back very soon I promise. Please stop crying.
Rose: My baby is hungry, I need to feed him. I’m the one who is supposed to be holding him and feeding him. He doesn’t deserve to pay for my sins
She breaks into tears again.
Nigel: It’s alright Rose, I’m as worried as you are. Please come eat something.
Rose: No Nigel. I can’t eat anything until my baby comes back, I won’t eat anything until he comes back.
Nigel: Don’t do this to me Rose please… I can’t…
A call came through his phone and he recognizes as the police.
Nigel: Yes inspector.
Inspector Dave: Something big happened Mr Owens. We found the body of a lady dressed in a uniform presumed to be your workers uniform at the roadside just now.
Nigel: (Shocked) What? What’s wrong with the person?
Inspector Dave: We can’t say yet… She has been taken to the hospital, where are you Mr Owens you’re needed for questioning.
Nigel: I’m at my other house with my son’s mother, I never knew any of this happened.
Inspector Dave: This is a very critical case Mr Owens, whoever did this wasn’t careful.
Nigel: Can I come early tomorrow morning? It’s already late and Rose needs to rest.
Inspector Dave: As an inspector, that’s all I can do so please make sure you come in the morning.
Nigel: Sure I will… Thanks inspector.
He hangs up and sees Rose staring at him for an explanation.
Nigel: They found the body of one of the workers at the mansion on the road side… I don’t know what really happened yet but I think it’s linked with our son’s disappearance.
Rose: Hmph! Couldn’t be anyone other than Selena.
Rose: Don’t call me Nigel you know it’s true. That worker came from your mansion and Selena is the only person apart from the workers that is in the mansion.
Nigel: I know but… I never knew Selena would do something so dangerous and callous.
Rose: Then do you think I’m worse than she is.
Nigel: No Rose don’t think like that please. I’m just saying this because I’ve known her for years and she never came across as a troublesome person.
Rose: (Scoffs) Stop talking about Selena’s good girl acts to me. I’m going to the station to report and request for a search conducted at your mansion tomorrow.
Nigel: Rose stop being so stubborn and wait at least. I was gonna ask for that even before you said anything.
Rose: No you’re not! You are always supporting her! I’m sick and tired of hearing you defending her!
She ran out of the room in anger while he chased after her. He caught her before she got to the gate.
Nigel: Rose! Rose I’m sorry… I’m not defending Selena, I’m just surprised.
Rose: Well I’m fed up of hearing about her so I’m leaving.
Rose: I’m leaving and I’m also going to give that bitch a piece of my mind.
Nigel: Rose… You want to leave me just because you are jealous? I’m the one who has suffered most in all of this yet I’m not complaining (He starts feeling a pain in his chest and head) Stop… Stop doing this please.
Rose: What’s wrong with you Nigel?
He collapsed on her shoulder
Rose: Nigel! OMG! I’m so sorry.
The security help her carry him up to the room and she attended to him.
Rose: I’m so sorry Nigel. I shouldn’t have stressed you so much. I totally forgot… I’m so stupid, being your doctor and knowing your condition I… feel so bad.
She continues crying.. He opened his eyes and sat up. She was backing him so she didn’t see him wake up, he dragged her to himself.
Nigel: Stop crying
Rose: I’m sorry… I’m so sorry.
Nigel: I’m not mad at you my darling… I guess I’ve been too stressed out.
Rose: What would you like to eat?
Nigel: I’m not hungry.
Rose: But you’re not well Nigel, you need to eat in order to take your drugs.
Nigel: You’re not eating so I’m not eating
Nigel: Let’s just wait till our son returns.
Rose: Nigel… You’ll get sick.
Nigel: Does that matter? You’re all that matters Rose so I don’t care.
Rose: I’m sorry… I was being selfish. I’ll eat something now… Let’s go.
He kissed her.
Nigel: That’s my girl.
💖The next morning💖
Nigel went to the police station as promised.
After a while he was allowed to see the inspector.
Inspector Dave: Good morning Mr Owens
Nigel: Good morning Inspector… Please tell me what’s really going on?
Inspector Dave: One of our officers on patrol saw this body on the road last night.
Inspector Dave brings out some pictures taken of the woman.
Nigel: Dear God! This is Soledad. She’s one of my favorite workers.
Inspector Dave: She was still wearing her uniform which means she was coming from your mansion.
Nigel: She always wears her uniform even when going home… I have not been home and only my wife has been home with the workers.
Inspector Dave: What if she saw something that made them smash her head because she was really bleeding from her head.
Nigel: Officer… Can I please request that my house be searched ?
Inspector Dave: If that’s what you want Mr Owens we do just that.
Nigel: Don’t hesitate to arrest anyone you see doing something suspicious even if its my wife.
Inspector Dave: We’ll be sure to do our job well. Besides we need to ask Mrs Owens a few questions.
Nigel: She’s Selena… I’m gonna divorce her soon.
Inspector Dave: Alright Mr Owens.
A call comes to the inspectors phone.
Inspector Dave: Yes tell me… She’s awake? She is trying to say something?
Watch her well… I’m on my way.
Nigel: Can I come with you Inspector?
Inspector Dave: Sure… Let’s go.
Will continue the rest tomorrow🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰
