He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
When we got home, I ordered the guards to lock Donald up while I went into my room to freshen up. After I was done changing, I went downstairs and headed to where Donald was.
I went in and stared at Donald for a while before walking around the room. He also stared at me as I walked around but it was with hatred.
“You know, I had completely fallen for you at first but thankfully, I got back to my senses just before you accomplish your mission” I said and paused to watch what his reaction will be
Just when I was about to continue, Andrian walked in. What does he wants?
“Who sent you?” he asked after taking a sit
“Do you think I will tell you that?” Donald asked with a scoff
“No. I don’t think you will tell me, I know you will tell me. Bring it in” he ordered and immediately, the guards
brought some equipment for torturing in.
“You don’t need to tell me, I will just force it out of you. Let me see, should I start with your fingers first or your
body? I’m not so sure” Andrian said with his hand on his chin
“No! You don’t need to start with his fingers, just start with his face first. I hope the iron is plugged already?” I
said turning to Donald and I could see the panic in his eyes
One of the guards brought the iron to me and I thanked him before walking towards Donald with the iron in my hand.
“I… I will answer your questions, just please leave my face alone” he pleaded just before I got to him
“Alright, I’m listening” I said taking a sit
“Zoey Williams sent me. She told me to make you trust me and then drug and rape you”
“Really? Zoey will never do something like that, looks like you don’t value your face as much as I thought” I said
standing up again
“I’m really serious! Why would I lie when my face is at stake here? She ordered me to do it and in return, I was to receive $3000. The pay is tempting so I had no choice”
“Even if the pay is tempting, this isn’t the first time you will be doing something like this. Just stay in here, I’ll decide what to do with you later” I said before stomping off
Zoey? Zoey actually sent Donald? Does this mean she’s also behind Mira? But she doesn’t look like someone capable of doing things like this? Gosh! I’m going crazy!!
I kicked the wall angrily for the umpteenth time! How can Zoey be so clueless? Doesn’t she even thinks at all?
How can she conclude that Skylar is her enemy when the real enemy is right beside her?
I picked up my phone still in my angry state and called her.
“Good day my unknown friend” she greeted making me scoff. Why does she seem to be in a good mood?
“What’s with your happy mood today?” I asked trying to suppress my anger
“Well, I finally found out who my enemy is and I’m going to be taking my revenge soon enough. I wonder why that boy hasn’t called yet though” she muttered the last part to herself but I just ignored it even though I heard
“And who might this your enemy be?” I asked sarcastically
“It’s Skylar. I should have figured it out sooner, I wonder why I’m so dumb”
“Really? Who told you Skylar is your enemy?”
“It’s obvious! Everything points to her but I couldn’t figure it quickly because she had everything planned out
“Can you just please shut it? Skylar is the victim here but you still think she’s the one behind what happened? Were you always this dumb? How can you even think it’s Skylar?
Even if you thought it was Skylar, why didn’t you inform me about it before doing anything? Just pray for your plan to succeed because if it fails, then you’ve lost Andrian forever. He will hate you till the end and make you
pay for both what you did and what you didn’t do. Just prepare yourself for the worst” I concluded before ending the call
I stared at the phone in my hand in shock! What does he mean by that? Skylar is not my enemy but someone
else? How is that possible? There’s no any other lady that wants Andrian except I and Skylar so what is going on? Ahh! My life’s a mess!
I picked up my phone
and called Donald for the umpteenth time but he still didn’t answer his phone. What if things went wrong like that guy said? No, you have to be positive Zoey.
Donald is a well-trained fighter while Skylar is just a helpless girl. I’ve got to keep trying his number, he’s probably busy. I kept trying it and luckily, he picked the third time.
“Hello Donald! I’ve been trying to reach you since, where did you put your phone?” I asked he moment he picked the call
“Long time no see, Zoey!” I heard Andrian’s voice come through making the phone fell off my hand instantly
How come Donald’s phone is with Andrian? Could it be that what that guy told me is true? No, it can’t be!
Absolutely not! I bent down to pick up my phone with shaky hands and luckily for me, the call was still on.
“I actually thought you won’t say anything again; what explanation are you going to give this time? I caught you red handed so what do you have to say?” he said and I can bet there’s a huge smirk on his face right now
“I can explain Andrian, it’s not what you think”
“Ohh… you can explain? Meet me at the rooftop within thirty minutes if you can really explain” he said before hanging up
I’m finally done for! Andrian already found out about Donald, what do I do now? What exactly am I going to explain to him when I get there? Am I to tell him that an unknown guy blabbed rubbish to me and that led to me making a huge mistake?
Why is my life so messed up? If I had gone to Paris that day, this wouldn’t have happened. Isn’t it too late to regret now? Andrian already found out so all I have to do now is go to the rooftop and find out what my fate will be.
Once I scale through this, I will travel to Paris without a second thought.
FIRE AND ICE
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I went to the rooftop like Andrian said and I met him there with his back turned to me. How am I going to face
him now? As if controlled by a force, he looked behind him and stared at me for a while before facing his front again.
I already got his message, he’s asking me to come closer. Taking a deep breath, I moved closer to him and stood behind him with my head bowed.
“G….Good day Andrian” I managed to stutter after clearing my throat
I don’t even know if it’s morning or afternoon because my entire system is not okay so I just decided to say good day instead.
“Do you think there’s anything good about the day Zoey?” he asked calmly
“I swear Andrian, it’s not what you think. Let me explain” I said with tears welled up in my eyes already
“That’s not the answer to my question Zoey. Is anything good about the day?” he asked calmly again making the tears finally drop this time
“You’re right Andrian, there’s nothing good about the day. I know I betrayed your trust and I’m really sorry about that” I said already in tears
“You know I trusted you Zoey. Even when Mira confessed that you sent her, I didn’t believe her because I wanted to believe in the person I called friend for over 20 years” he said but I cut him off
“I didn’t send Mira, believe me Andrian! I’m not going to deny this one but I didn’t send Mira for real. Please believe me”
“I should believe you? Why will I want to do that after what just happened? We’ve been friends since childhood Zoey so why should you try to harm my fiance?”
“I thought she was the one that asked Mira to frame me but I realise I was wrong. I’m really sorry Andrian, I wasn’t in a right state of mind when I did those things”
“Do you know how many years we’ve being friends? Even though I don’t love you back, you’re still one of the most important people to me but seeing your acts lately, I don’t know what to do.
Let’s just end our friendship here and forget about the times we spent together. I couldn’t believe it when that guy said you sent him. Even Skylar herself didn’t believe him because she thought you were someone that can’t
hurt a fly and I also thought the same way.
How you suddenly changed and became like this is what I don’t know. Either way, let’s just end things here.
You can travel out of the country if it’s too hard for you so you can clear your head. Just don’t repeat what you did. Bye” he said and started heading down
“I’m really sorry Andrian, please forgive me. I promise you it won’t happen again, just don’t end our friendship” I pleaded blocking his path
“I can’t do that Zoey, I will be putting Skylar’s life in danger that way. Go home and take a nap, you’ll definitely be fine” he said before finally walking away
Did I just lost Andrian for good? Even if he didn’t love me, as long as we were still friends, I was always okay with it. But now, we’re no longer friends, how will I survive this?
I wish I was Skylar! She gets to see Andrian everyday and live in the same house with him.
But why did Andrian fall in love with her and not me? Is she more beautiful than I am?
“You’re so dumb Zoey, is this what you should be thinking about now?” my subconscious scolded
Whatever! I should leave already. I will just spend a week here to round things up before going to Paris.
I can’t believe I ended my friendship of over twenty years with Zoey. It was really had but I had to do it.
She needs to know that what she did was totally wrong and that’s the best way to punish her.
I might make her my friend later on but for now, we have to end things and stay away from each other until I see
she has changed back to that innocent Khloe.
Skylar still hasn’t stopped giving me the cold shoulder and it’s really frustrating. Does she have to do this now
that I’m sure of my feelings for her?
“You’re sure if your feelings for he but you’re not ready to confess it to her because of your pride” my subconscious mocked
How can I confess my feelings to her? She’s going to see the soft part of me that no one knows exist and I don’t want that.
I want to be that grumpy and rude Andrian to everyone including Skylar. But for how long will I do that?
I’ve never fallen in love with anyone before. I never even liked ladies until Zoey and Leah tempted me. Why did I
even let myself fall into the trap of those ladies?
Now, Leah said she’s pregnant! I haven’t even thought about what to do yes because I’m just so confused.
If she really is pregnant for me, how do I deal with her and Skylar at the same time? I love Skylar but Leah is carrying my baby, who do I choose between both of them?
Aish!!! I’m really going to go crazy at this rate! This is one of the reasons why I dislike women. I just slept with Leah once or twice and now she claims to be pregnant.
What was I even thinking when I released into her? The deed has been done anyway. The next step to take now is for me to make my decision.
Who do I want to choose between Skylar and Leah? I can’t possibly keep both of them, I’m going to die within a month because I won’t be able to deal with them. Love or my child?
The ringing of my phone snapped me out of my thoughts. I brought out my phone and checked the caller, it’s the company I’m about to sign a contract with.
“Good afternoon sir Andrian” came the callers voice
“Afternoon ma’am! How may I help you?”
“Well, I was told to inform you that there will be a party hosted by the company tonight. You’re to come along with your fiance at exactly 7pm”
“Alright ma’am, thanks”
“You’re welcome. Bye”
So I have to go out with Skylar today? I just hope she agrees to go with me. What if she decides to mess things up at the party?
“Be optimistic for once Andrian! Skylar is a good girl with a kind heart so she won’t do something like that” I assured myself taking a deep breath before driving home
Things are finally getting interesting! Zoey came home few minutes ago with her eyes red and puffy from crying too much.
She said Andrian ended their friendship of over 20 years and doesn’t want to set his eyes on her again.
Now that Zoey is out of the way, the only obstacle I’m having right now is Skylar! Thankfully, I have Mason to
deal with her already so all I have to focus on for now is how to make Andrian accept the baby no matter what.
“Leah?” Zoey called snapping me out of my thoughts
“Huh? I told you to rest right and forget about Andrian”
“I know! Please help me tell the maids to cook something for me. I’m hungry, I haven’t eaten since morning” she
said looking so pitiful
The way she looks weak now makes me want to stop what I’m doing but I can’t do that. I even had to sacrifice Mira that I really loved like my own sister so I can’t just stop now.
Everything I’ve worked for so far will be in vain if I stop now. I just need Andrian’s money and property, that’s all!
“Alright. Just don’t think about anything okay? You’ll be fine” I said reassuringly
“Thank you Leah” she said with a tear rolling down her cheek
I couldn’t bear the sight anymore so I decided to leave the room and ask the maids to prepare something for her.
I have deal with Andrian fast before Zoey gets to know about it. I should start with a threat first!
