He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I called Skylar and informed her about the dinner party that was to take place that night.
At first, she said she’s going to be really busy and won’t have time for that but after much pleading, she finallydecided to go with me
Right now, I’m in my room getting dressed for the party while Skylar is also in her room getting ready.
My phone suddenly started ringing just when I was about leaving the room. Who the hell is disturbing me this time? I took out my phone and checked the caller. Leah??!
“Hello” I said grumpily after I picked the call
“Good evening Andrian, how are you doing?”
“Just go straight to the point Leah, I don’t have time for this” I said rudely
“Ohh ….. Okay then, if that’s what you want! What have you decided to do about my pregnancy?” she asked the most annoying question I least expected
Truth be told, I’ve forgotten about the pregnancy. I should have tried resisting her harder that day!
“I’ve told you already. I will take responsibility for the baby and assist you in raising him/her financially but I won’t end things with Skylar just because of you”
“Really? That’s interesting! How about I tell the media about the baby then?”
“Go ahead, I don’t care!” I said and was about ending the call when she stopped me
“You don’t care? It means you also won’t care if I tell them you raped me. Don’t worry, you’ll be surprised by what I’m going to release to the media tomorrow. You have until 4pm to make your decisions. Bye!” she said and ended the call
Like seriously? What exactly does this girl want from me? She’s going to tell the media? Ohh Andrian! You’re so doomed!!
I snapped out of my thoughts when my eyes met the clock on the wall. If I don’t leave within five minutes, I’m going to be late for the party and I don’t want that.
When I got to the stairs, I saw Skylar seated on one of the couches with her legs crossed.
She was wearing a short white gown with a little touch of make up and a silver necklace. She looks really simple but extremely beautiful.
It was until Skylar looked at my direction before I continued walking downstairs. This girl is really tempting, no wonder why I fell for her within a short time.
“Let’s go, we’re running late” I said avoiding her gaze when I finally got to her
“I wasn’t the one gawking at someone” she said in a mocking tone before leaving
Looks like she caught me! I hurriedly walked out of the room to meet up with her.
Within few minutes, we arrived at the party and from the looks of things, I think they are just about starting.
I held Skylar’s hand in mine and we walked gracefully into the hall. I know we look like people who are deeply in love to the world, if only they knew what’s going on at home.
“Good evening sir Andrian! The lady with you is really beautiful, who is she?” one of my business partners asked when we got inside
“She’s my fiance, haven’t you heard?”
“Ohh…. Pardon me! It skipped my mind, congratulations!”
I received the handshake with a little smile before leaving there. I hope this dinner comes to an end quickly!
I searched for Skylar in the hall since she’s supposed to be here with Andrian and it wasn’t long before I found her.
“Good evening Mrs Carter” I said when I got to her
“Evening Mr Jones! How have you been?” Skylar answered with a small smile
“Is there something I’m missing here?” Andrian asked through gritted teeth. I think I’m loving this!
“Probably!” I said nonchalantly
“Let’s go Skylar!” he said holding her hands
“It’s my choice to leave or stay! We’ll talk some other time Me Jones” Skylar said with a small bow before leaving with Andrian.
If Andrian and Skylar are having a misunderstanding, then I think this is the perfect opportunity I’ve been waiting for!
I should behave like a gentleman and win Skylar’s heart without having to stress myself one bit. Girls like her are easy to get so it’s only a matter of time before I have her wrapped around my fingers.
I just hope the company doesn’t ask us to do anything this time. It’s really hard to keep pretending to love each other in public when we can’t even stand each other at home.
“Good evening ladies and gentlemen present!” I heard the MC’s voice from the stage
“Today, we’re not going to be asking you to do anything. We only need to assess you, that’s all!” he concluded before leaving
“Stand with your partners, each partner should be on a sit!” a female voice said
I and Andrian managed to find a sit at the middle of the hall. What are they going to assess now?
“Alright, we’re done!” they announced after fifteen minutes
“The results are going to be announced soon so while we wait for it, you guys should listen to the cool music that will be played and eat to your fill” the lady concluded before leaving again
Just like she said, a cool music was being played and different dishes and drinks were served around. Now, this is what I like
I picked up my spoon and was about eating but something suddenly occurred to me. What if this is one of their tests?
Usually, people who are in love feed themselves when eating so is that what we’re supposed to do? Seriously?
I glared hard at Andrian as he was about putting the food in his mouth before lowering his hands
“We don’t know if this is one of their tests so we have to be really cautious. If it’s one of their tests, then we have to feed each other in a loving way” I said through gritted teeth
“So I should feed you?” he asked dumbly
“Of course! You’ll feed me and I’ll do the same, but we have to do it like we’re really in love” I said glaring at him
“Fine, fine, let’s start then!”
Andrian picked up the spoon and fee me while I accepted it with a fake smile and also did the same for him.
We kept feeding each other until we almost finished the food before we finally stopped.
Just after we stopped, the bright lights came on and the dim lights went off.
“Sorry for the delay! We’re going to be announcing the results now!” the man said making my heart pound heavily
“Like the first one, were going to present gifts to the first three starting from the third person”
He called the name of one company first, after which he called Mason’s company.
“The first position goes to the Carter’s. The couple is just too good. They won the first time and now they’re winning again
I heaved a sigh of relief as I and Andrian stood up and walked to the front with our hands entwined. Best lovers indeed!!
“They not only won the first test but they won the second also. When we asked you to eat, it was a test and you’re supposed to feed each other but only Skylar and Andrian did that.
It was few minutes after they started that some of you imitated them so automatically, they won again.
A message will be sent to your mail indicating whether or not you’re still qualified for the contract.
Enjoy yourself and have a wonderful night rest. Bye” the man concluded and left
This is going to be a long night, I’m just suddenly very tired. Within the twinkle of an eye, I felt myself floating in the air. What’s happening?
“I figured you’re tired from the heels so I decided to be of help. We wouldn’t have won first place if not for you.
Thank you!” Andrian said staring at me with so much passion in his eyes
I almost got lost staring into his eyes but I came back to my senses almost immediately. Why the hell is he joking with my feelings?
Maybe he knows I’ve fallen for him and that’s why he’s treating me this way.
“You have to tighten up your guard Skylar, don’t ever let it down again” I said to myself
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I smiled inwardly as I carried Skylar bridal style. Yeah Andrian, you’re the ladies’ man indeed!
The only thing left now is confessing my feelings to Skylar but I’m so nervous.
Skylar is not one of those ladies I’ve come across, she’s unique and really fearless. Who knows if she’s going to say no to me?
Don’t be nervous Andrian! Every woman has always wanted to date you. I receive love quotes from different people everyday so I’m sure Skylar will accept my love.
What if she turns me down? No, I shouldn’t think that way. She won’t turn me down!
“Have you forgotten your own house Andrian? You’re about to drive past it” Skylar said snapping me out of my thoughts
“Sorry for yourself. Who knows if the house doesn’t even belong to you? How can someone be staring at his house and still try to drive past it?” she murmured to herself but I still heard anyway
Like seriously? Is this the person I want to confess my feelings to? Get ready for the worst Andrian!
“Uhhm… Skylar” I called just when she was about climbing the stairs
“Huh?” she said turning to face me
“I have something to tell you” I said lowly
What’s wrong with you Andrian? You’ve never been this way towards any lady, is this how love is?
“What you want to say, can it wait till tomorrow? I’m really tired” she said pouting her lips a little
“No, it can’t wait. You can sit down on the couch and just listen” I suggested
“Alright, I’ll just sit then” she agreed and sat on a couch
“Go on, I’m listening” she urged
I cleared my throat a little before proceeding
“I… I like you Skylar. I know we didn’t start on good terms but we can start over. I’ve fallen deeply for you and I
want you to be my girlfriend for real now” I said staring directly at her
She look at me with her lips slightly parted for a while but just like she was snapped out of a trance, she scoffed.
“Really? You think I’m in the mood to listen to a joke right now?”
“It’s not a joke Skylar, I really mean it! What should I do to make you believe me?”
“Well, get lost! I should be in my room sleeping, not listening to your gibberish” she said before taking the stairs to her room
Gosh Andrian! Did you just get rejected by that little devil?
I knew it! I knew this will be the end of everything! Why did I even tell her from the start?
I should have known she’s really dumb but I didn’t expect it to be this much. Shit! How do I face her from now on?
I guess I just have to be a little bit bossier than usual. Maybe she will be able to forget that way.
I managed to walk to my room and fell on the bed immediately I got in. I’m so tired, I really hate heels!
“… I like you Skylar. I know we didn’t start on good terms but we can start over. I’ve fallen deeply for you and I want you to be my girlfriend for real now” the voice replayed in my head making me scoff
For real? He likes me? If he thinks I’m a fool that will fall for his prank, then he better try harder.
Could it be that he knows I’ve fallen for him already and he decided to use it against me? No, it can’t be!
Whatever! I’m also human and I deserve to love someone and be loved in return. Is that why he’s take my
feelings for granted?
I don’t blame him though, I blame my stupid self for falling in love with him. I should have fallen for someone else instead, like Mason.
Am I really planning to trust Mason completely? For all I know, he might just be pretending!
That was what Donald also did! Although, Mason seemed kind of genuine.
Ahh!! Whatever! Everyone of them are just giving me headache. Since when did I let my guard down this much?
Falling for a guy shouldn’t even be my priority right now! I have to work hard to pay Ella’s fees and then we’ll travel out of this goddamn country because I’m sick of it already.
My temperature is high now cos I’ve been stressing my head thinking of irrelevant things. A good sleep will do the trick.
“Go to bed Skylar” I said to myself before drifting off to sleep
I smirked victoriously as I picked up my phone to call Andrian. It’s just matter of time before I have him wrapped around my fingers.
“What do you want Leah?” he asked grumpily
“Nothing much, I just need your answer. Should I go ahead and inform the media?” I asked calmly
“You still haven’t answered my question yet!” I reminded him
“No, don’t say anything to the media”
“Alright then! I will be in your office this morning. Bye” I concluded and ended the call
Let’s see! What should I wear to Andrian’s office?
About an hour later, I parked my car in Andrian’s company and stepped out of it wearing dark shades.
Uhhm… The air feels good! I didn’t waste time before walking straight to Andrian’s office.
“Good day ma…” the secretary was greeting but I cut her off
“Is Andrian in his office?”
“Yes ma’am! Let me inform him you’re here” she said picking up the landline
“That won’t be necessary, just go on with your work” I dismissed her and went in without knocking
Once I was in, Andrian gave me a long stare before taking his eyes back to the files on his table.
“The next time you enter into my office without knocking, you will go home without some of your fingers since they aren’t functioning properly” he said coldly sending shivers down my spine
I stood still for few minutes contemplating if I should stay or run away. Why is he so scary today? I shrugged the thoughts off and sat on a chair
“I don’t have much time to spend here so I’ll be really fast about what I have to say! For the few minutes I’m going to spend here, can you please look me in the eye and stop whatever you’re doing?”
“Is there something in your eyes I should be staring at? My ears are working perfectly fine so if you have anything to say, say it quickly because I also have a lot of things to do as you can see”
“Fine then! I want you to end things with Skylar! I’m the mother of your unborn child so I should be your fiance instead”
“I can’t do that! If that’s all you have to say, then you can leave” he said without sparing me a glance
What the hell? Where is this guy from? He’s not even scared about what I’m going to tell the world?
“I should leave? What I said just now makes no sense to you right? Fine, I’m leaving” I said and stood up angrily
“Leah! Can’t you at least behave like a matured lady for once? What will you gain from telling the whole world?”
Andrian asked calmly
“That’s none of your business!! You want me to give birth to a child as a single mother? As a model, it will affect me a lot but you aren’t thinking about any of those” I said raising my voice a little
“Why didn’t you take pills after we had sex?” he asked calmly again
“So what you want now is for me to end things with Skylar and make you my fiance instead?”
“Yes, that’s the only way this pregnancy won’t be an embarrassment for me”
“I can’t do what you’re asking me to do. Go home for now, I will figure out something”
“Alright, I’ll go home. But if you try to play smart, then I’ll show you that I’m the smartest” I said before storming out of his office
JJust wait and see Andrian! I will find a way to make you stuck and have no other choice but to listen to me.
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I woke up feeling a little refreshed than how I felt last night. After saying a quick prayer, I got down from the bed and went into the bathroom.
While in the bathroom, I remembered what Andrian said the previous night about liking me.
It sounds funny to me. How could he have thought I will fall for his prank? Well, I don’t blame him. If I hadn’t fallen for him first, this wouldn’t have happened.
I wore my clothes and picked my bag when I was done. I just need to go out for a walk today so I won’t get homesick.
The first person I saw when I got to the stairs was Andrian. I don’t think my day could get any worse.
“Good morning” I greeted when I got downstairs
“Morning” he answered coldly and continued with whatever he was doing on his phone
Wasn’t this the same person that confessed his feelings last night? Thank goodness I turned him down, he would
mocked me if I had believed him.
“I want to go to the office today. Should I leave first or we should go together?” I asked him after a while
“You can leave first and you can go later but we can’t go together” he answered not taking his gaze from his
“What’s wrong Andrian? You weren’t like this last night. Besides, if I remember clearly, you even said you like me”
“Forget about what I said last night, I didn’t mean any of those words” he said and I felt a sting in my heart
“Ohh… What was I expecting? I will be going to my friend’s place, have a nice day at work” I said and left
What does she mean by “what was I expecting?” Did I go to far?
“No Andrian, you did the right thing” I assured myself
I should be in the office now, what am I doing at home? I shove my phone into my pocket and drove one of my
cars to work.
hen I got there, I met Leah waiting for me already. What the hell!! Doesn’t she sleep at all?
“Good morning Andrian” she greeted standing up with a smile on her face
“Morning” I mumbled and went into my office
“Sorry I’m here early. I just want us to resolve things before the world gets to know about my pregnancy” she
said when we got inside
“Alright! I’ve thought about what to do overnight”
Really? What’s that?” she asked anxiously
“Don’t tell anyone that I’m the father of the baby for now”
“Really? What should I tell them then?”
“I don’t know, I know you’ll be able to figure something out. If you tell the world that I’m responsible, then I will
lose the contract I’m about to win.
Just exercise a little patience until the contract is awarded to me. After that, we can move to the next level and
decide on what to do”
“I don’t care about any contract. What matters most is that I don’t want to be ridiculed.
The world would think I’m a slut if I tell them I don’t know the father of my baby”
“It’s nothing. Let’s do it that way for now, please”
“Fine! But how are you going to get rid of Skylar after winning the contract?”
“It’s easy. Our marriage is… ” I paused when I realized I was about spilling the beans to Leah at that
“Your marriage is what?” she asked curiously
“Nevermind! I will find a way to deal with Skylar so don’t worry” I assured her
“Alright. But I’m only going to give you at most three months. After three months, I will tell the whole world”
Oh God! How do I get out of this mess I’ve gotten myself into?
My phone made a sound indicating someone messaged me. I wanted to ignore it at first but then, I decided to
check it out.
What?? Get married? No, I’ve got to be seeing things wrongly. How can they ask us to get married?
Just like they heard my question, their call came in immediately.
“Good day sir Andrian” I heard the female voice
“I hope our message has gotten to you?”
“Yes ma’am but I don’t understand”
“It’s very simple! We want all the people with a fiance to get married by the end of this week.
That’s the exact reason why we said only men with a fiance can participate. If you have a fiance already, marriage
shouldn’t be difficult for you” she concluded
“I understand now. Thank you”
“You’re welcome. Bye” she said and ended the call
Marriage? Marriage wasn’t involved in the contract I signed with Skylar so I doubt if she will ever agree to it. Is
this how I’m going to lose the contract?
I smiled at the camera as I made different poses. This is going to be my last shoot in USA for now.
I will be travelling to Paris tomorrow where I’ll start afresh. Although, I will still keep in touch with Leah because
she has been there for me.
When I got home, I took a shower and wanted to eat but the ringing of my phone stopped me.
I checked my phone and discovered it was the unknown guy. What does he want this time?
“So the best thing you can do is run away? While you’re busy running away, the enemy is happy and is even
planning something bigger than you will ever imagine”
“So what? How does that have anything to do with me? I don’t care about whatever she’s planning to leave me
out of this”
“I know you don’t care, I just decided to inform you. Good luck on running away” he said and ended the call
Aish!! This guy just ruined my afternoon. What exactly did I do to him that he doesn’t want me to have rest of
I will leave for Paris tomorrow and that’s final!
I got to Audrey’s work place and sat tiredly on the chair.
“Wow! Look whom we have here!” Audrey exclaimed when she saw me
“You don’t look too good Skylar, what’s wrong? Let me just round up with my work, then we can go to
somewhere quiet and talk” she said after noticing my mood
“So what’s wrong Skylar?” she asked stretching a cup of coffee to me
“Thank you” I muttered and sipped the coffee
“What happened” she asked aga
“I’m done for Audrey!” I said resting my head on her shoulde
“How? Did something happen?” she asked looking lost
“I’m in love with Andrian” I dropped the bombshell
“What??!!!” she screamed
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
“I’m in love with Andrian” I dropped the bombshell
“What??!!!” Audrey screamed “You’re joking right?” she asked
“I’m not joking Audrey, I don’t know how it happened”
“Wow! Andrian is really a man. If I heard this from someone else, I won’t believe the person. You Skylar of all people is in love with someone?” she exclaimed not taking her eyes off me for even a second
“I don’t understand! I’m human too so why can’t I fall in love?” I asked even though I know the answer to the
“Yeah, you’re human and you have the right to fall in love. But I’ve never come across a girl that is as cold as you
are. You’ve never even had a male friend so don’t blame me for being shocked that you’re in love”
“Well, it doesn’t matter. Right now, I need your help. It looks like Andrian knows I’m in love with him and he’s
making a fool of me” I explained
“He confessed his feelings for me yesterday but he didn’t mean it, he was only making a fun of me”
“Really? How did you know if he was only making a fun of you?”
“I told him to get lost last night after he told me he likes me and this morn….. “
“What? Audrey shrieked not allowing me to complete my sentence
“You asked Andrian to get lost? You must be joking?”
“Well, I’m not done. This morning, he behaved coldly towards me like he didn’t say anything last night.
If I hadn’t shun him off, he would have really made fun of me”
“I doubt that! He’s probably behaving that way towards you because you turned him down. Why would you do
“I told you he was playing with my feelings” I protested
“So what should I do now?”
“I don’t know but it will be hard to get rid of your feelings for him. I think the best thing to do is make him fall for
“Really? Make Andrian Carter fall for me? Are you dreaming Audrey? He didn’t fall for Zoey but you think he will fall for me?”
“Of course! Besides, I think he’s in love with you already. Either way, make him fall for you”
“And how will I do that?”
“There are many ways to do that but first, you need to know what he likes in a lady and the type of lady he likes”
“Ohh…. It means I will have to go into his heart to check it. Can’t you be reasonable for once Audrey? There’s no
way I will know the kind of lady Andrian likes”
“There is, but just forget it. Don’t try to seduce him, smile more often and be free around him. Don’t act coldly
like you’re not human when you’re with him and I bet he will fall for you before you know it”
“Hmm. Okay then, since that’s what you think. I will be on my way now, you should get back to work”
“Alright, take care of yourself”
“I definitely will, and you too. Bye” she waved at me before going back to work
Now, I’m left alone. How exactly do I make Andrian fall for me?
Aish!! Don’t think about that Skylar. Just go home and take a nap, you shouldn’t be thinking about someone like Andrian.
Yes, that’s what I will do!
I decided to close early today so I can discuss the marriage with Skylar. We have to rush with the wedding plans
because of the short time we have, I just hope Skylar makes things easy for me by complying to the marriage.
“Lock the door to my office when you’re done and cancel all my appointments for the first three hours
tomorrow” I said to my secretary on the way out of my office
After minutes of driving, I finally arrived home and I didn’t waste time before going in. I will need to take a
shower first before talking to Skylar because I’m so nervous right now. I’ll try my best not to make it obvious
When I was done wearing my clothes, I went to Skylar’s room and knocked on the door but got no response. I
knocked once more before she finally responded.
“Who is that?” she asked not making any move to open the door
I heard footsteps and before I knew it, the door went open.
“Were you sleeping?” I asked when I got in
“That’s none of your business. Why are you here?” she asked instead
“We need to talk” I said sitting
“The company just called me now. They asked us to get married before the end of this week” I dropped the bombshell but she only scoffed instead
“Do I look like I’m interested in your pranks? I was about sleeping before you came in now so will you please
excuse me?” she said glaring at me
“I’m not joking Skylar, I mean it. Here’s the message since you don’t believe me” I said bringing out my phone
I checked for the message and in no time, I saw it.
“Read it” I said stretching my phone to her
She collected it and stared at it for a while before returning it back to me.
“So what are we going to do now? I never agreed to marriage before we signed the contract so we can’t possibly
get married” she said staring at me
“I know we never agreed to get married but that’s what they want now. I also didn’t expect them to ask us to do
“So? I should get married to you?”
“If you back out now, then all what we’ve been doing will be a waste”
“You still haven’t answered my question”
“We have to get married Skylar. The marriage papers will be fake so you don’t have to worry about a thing”
“Well, I don’t want to. You can leave when you’re done” she said and lay on the bed
“Skylar, you can’t do this now. Once we pass through this, the rest won’t be difficult anymore. They can’t possibly
ask us to make babies right?”
“At this rate, I don’t think there’s nothing they can’t ask us to do”
“That’s not true. Believe me Skylar, after this marriage there won’t be any problem again”
“Fine then, but you only have tonight. You have to get your wedding dress tomorrow and I have to start planning the wedding also”
“I didn’t say I will get married to you. I might say yes and I might say now, I’ll advice you to think of my answer as a no for now”
“Please Skylar, let your answer be positive” I pleaded
“Wow! Did you just say please” she asked now sitting up
“No! Just think about it” I said and left her room hurriedly
How can you be so dumb Andrian? Why did you say please? Now she will think of you as a weakling
I really hate myself for falling in love with Skylar. Why did it have to be her? It could have been any other person
She doesn’t even like me one bit so what am I supposed to do? I think I should talk to Micheal about it.
I know he’s going to make fun of me but I don’t care because I think I’m going crazy.
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
After Andrian left, I lay quietly on the bed. He doesn’t even have a heart because if he does, I’m sure he will know how much I love him.
He just said we should go for a fake marriage like I’m not human. I wish all these things were real.
I wish I was his fiance for real and not just his fiance by contract. I wish the marriage that is about to take place is real.
I fell in love for the first time but the person I love doesn’t have a heart. He doesn’t care about my feelings one
bit and it hurts a lot.
I didn’t know when a tear rolled down my cheek and slowly it turned into sobs. After a while, I drifted to sleep.
I woke up in the evening, everywhere was already dark. I’m sure they must have eaten by now but no one even
bothered to call me for dinner.
I got down from the bed and headed downstairs when I heard my stomach rumble. I only ate breakfast so I’m
really hungry now.
When I got downstairs, I met Andrian seated on one of the couch with his laptop.
“You’re awake!! I wanted to call you down for dinner but I discovered you were still sleeping and I didn’t want to
disturb you. Your food is on the table”
“Thank you” I muttered and walked slowly to the dinning table
“Are you okay Skylar?” Andrian asked standing up from the couch
“I’m fine” I answered lowly
“You’re not fine. Are you having a fever?” he asked placing his palm on my forehead and I didn’t know when a tear rolled down my cheek
“You’re crying Skylar, what’s wrong?” he asked alarmed when he noticed the tear
“I will just eat in my room” I said and wiped the tear before going upstairs with my food
It will be best if he doesn’t pretend like he cares. Why did I even cry in his presence? Gosh! You’re so dumb
I stared at the stairs like she’s going to appear suddenly but I didn’t see anyone, it just looked the same.
What exactly is wrong with Skylar? Why was she crying? I’m really confused right now
“The only way to find out is by asking her. Just go to her room and ask” my subconscious said
I really don’t want to go to her room but I don’t think I have a choice now.
I walked up the stairs and finally, I was starting in front of her room. I tried knocking on the door but I suddenly became nervous.
Why are you nervous Andrian? Just knock on the door and when she opens the door, ask her what’s wrong.
“You got this Andrian, let’s do this!” I said to myself and tried knocking but I still couldn’t do it
If I continue this way, I wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight and I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow.
With a new set of determination, I decided to knock the door for real this time but the door suddenly went open.
I saw Skylar standing at the door with a plate in her hands, looks like she just finished eating.
“What are you doing here?” she asked surprised
“N.. nothing” I stuttered and moved out of the way
She stared at me weirdly before going to drop her plate in the kitchen.
“Why are you still here?” she asked when she returned but still met me standing at her door
“I… I want to talk to you” I stuttered again
“What’s that? I’m listening” she urged
“Let’s go into your room” I said without stuttering this time and my voice was a bit cold
“So… What do you want to talk to me about?” she asked when we got inside
She was seated on her bed while I was seated on the couch in her room and I cleared my throat before talking.
“Why were you crying down there?” I asked the question that had been on my mind
“It’s nothing. If that’s why you’re here, then I guess you should just leave” she said looking away
“I don’t want to leave. If you don’t tell me why you were crying, then I will stay here till tomorrow and none of us
will sleep until then” I threatened
“Why do you care anyway? You don’t care even if something bad happens to me so why do you care that I just cried?
Stay away from me and stop messing with my head. One minute, you behave like you care but the next minute,
you’re back to your grumpy self. Just leave me alone” she screamed in tears
I tried talking but no words came out of my mouth. I was completely helpless and confused. Why is she crying?
“I… I really care about you Skylar, I do” I managed to say after a while
“You care? Did you just say you care? If you really care like you claim to, why did you confess your love to me last
night and became grumpy towards me this morning?”
“I….. I just couldn’t believe that you turned me down. Girls are always throwing themselves at me so it was hard to accept that you rejected me”
“Are you trying to say you meant it when you said you were in love with me?” she asked
“Yes, I meant it” I said trying to search her eyes for answers but her expression was unreadable
“You love me?” she muttered to herself
“Yes, I do” I answered her even though the answer wasn’t needed
“Then why did you behave that way to me everytime?”
“I didn’t want to accept the fact that I was in love with you so I treated you that way thinking it will make me stop
loving you but I realized I was wrong”
“How am I supposed to believe you?”
“Believe me Skylar, I really love you”
“Then what about Leah? You made out with her few days ago”
“It.. she seduced me” I stuttered
“Are you sure that’s all? There’s nothing between you two?” she asked with raised brows
“Yes, there’s nothing between us” I answered without looking at her
A part of me wanted to tell her that Leah was carrying my child but I decided not to. She won’t date me if she knows about it.
“So… What do you say about being my girlfriend? Besides, do you love me too?”
“Will I cry if I don’t love you?”
“Oh.. I’m sorry I made you cry”
“It’s okay” she said with a smile
“Alright. So what do you say about starting over? Will you be my girlfriend?” I asked and I saw a blush creep into her face
“Yes, I will be your girlfriend”
“Really?” I asked and she replied with a nod
“Wow! I’m so happy right now” I exclaimed
“Hmm! Are you sure? You know, I still find it hard to believe you’re in love with me”
“But why? I really do love you”
“Fine, I’m going to believe you then”
“Why are you asking? You were the first guy to kiss me anyway” she muttered the last part to herself but I still
“For real? You mean you haven’t kissed anyone before?”
“Y.. yes” she stuttered shyly
“And you haven’t kissed? Don’t tell me you’re a virgin. Of course not!”
“I.. m a virgin. Don’t you like virgins?” she asked timidly
“Y… You’re a virgin” I questioned like I heard wrongly but she just nodded her head
“It’s not that I don’t like virgins, I’m just surprised”
“I will leave you to sleep now” I said standing up
“C.. can’t you spend the night here? I just want someone to cuddle me for the first time after the death of my
“Are you sure about this?”
“Yes. It’s just cuddling, nothing more” she said stretching the ” nothing more”
“It’s fine then. Come here”
We slept on the bed with my hands wrapped around her and soon we drifted off to sleep.
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
My plans have been put into order now, I just decided to lie low all these while so I can easily carry out my plans.
After thinking carefully about it, I’ve decided to move on to the next level with Skylar. I doubt if she and Andrian
even love each other.
If that’s the case, then it will make things even easier for me because Skylar won’t think twice before accepting my proposal.
You’re a genius Mason. I’ve waited for this day all my life and I can’t believe it’s finally here.
Tomorrow, I will be few steps away from having a taste of Skylar. I feel on top of the world already.
I woke up with a smile on my face but besides that, I felt a body beside me.
I had a dream last night and in the dream, I and Andrian confessed our love for each other and he even cuddled me to sleep.
I wish it was true but I know better than to wish for things like that. I should get ready for shopping today.
I opened my eyes and tried getting up from the bed but I noticed I couldn’t stand up because a hand was
wrapped around my waist.
I looked at my side and found Andrian sleeping peacefully beside me with his hands wrapped possessively
Wait! Does that mean I really became his girlfriend last night? No way! That’s not possible!!
I looked away from him and wiped my face clean before turning back to him again. Andrian is really in the same bed with me?
A small smile formed on my lips instantly. Andrian loves me and I’m now his girlfriend officially, I couldn’t be happier.
I laid back on the bed and just stared at the ceiling with a smile on my face. I had always thought I and Andrian
\could never be together but I guess I was wrong.
What’s making my princess smile to herself?” Andrian asked startling me a bit but I turned to face him anyway
“It’s just kind of hard to believe we’re now dating for real” I said with the smile still on my face
“Ohh… It shouldn’t be hard to believe. I should have confessed my feelings earlier but I just didn’t want to accept
the fact that I fell in love with you”
“It’s the same here. I’ve been in love with you for a while now but I didn’t want to accept it. It doesn’t matter a
nyway, the most important thing is that we’re together now”
“Promise me you’re not going to break my heart, it’s the first time I’m dating anyone”
“I have no reason to break your heart. Besides, this is also my first time dating so I should be the one saying that
and not you”
“Alright then. I will go to my room and take my bath, you should also do the same because you’ll be getting your wedding dress today”
“Sure!” I said also standing up
“Uhhm…. Skylar?” Andrian called when he got to the door
“Yes?” I answered turning to him
“How about we get married for real? Instead of the fake documents, how about we sign the real one?”
I thought about it for a while before answering him
“No, let’s just sign the fake one for now. If our relationship lasts for a year, then we can get married for real after that”
“O.. kay” he said and left
Should I have agreed to it? No, the answer I gave him is perfect. I don’t know if he’s going to break my heart or not, I still can’t forget what I saw him do with Leah and Zoey.
I got into the bathroom and started bathing. I need to be quick so I can get my wedding dress today.
I sat on my bed when I got inside my room. I won’t be signing fake papers with Skylar for the marriage.
I love her and I can see that she loves me too so there’s no point signing fake documents.
I went into the bathroom to take my bath and get ready to shop for our wedding.
When I was done bathing, I wore a casual jean and shirt. I think this looks better on me!
I picked up my phone and wanted to go downstairs when my phone suddenly started ringing. Who is this again? Leah?
I sighed tiredly and sat on my bed before picking the call.
“Hello” I said into the phone
“Have you thought about what to do about my pregnancy?” she asked making me scoff
“I thought you gave me three months”
“Well, I changed my mind” she said nonchalantly
“Really? How can you just change your mind?”
“I own my mind and I can take whatever decision I want. I realized that I won’t be able to wait for three months because of the baby bump so start thinking about what to do now.
I need you to come to a conclusion before the end of this week. That’s all for now, bye” she said and ended the call
Oh goodness! Why now? Why did this have to happen when things are finally working out between I and Skylar?
What do I do now? I have to sort this quickly before it affects my relationship with Skylar but how? I guess I’ll ask
Micheal about that later!
I stood on my feet and walk downstairs to see Skylar seated on one of the couches with her phone in her hand.
“Sorry I kept you waiting, let’s go now!”
“I actually thought you changed your mind” she said with an eyeroll
“I doubt if he even loves me like he claims to” she muttered
“I love you Skylar, stop having doubts about that”
“Well, what do you want me to think when you keep acting strangely? One minute, you act all sweet, the next minute, you become indifferent.
Before you left my room, your mood was bright but after spending hours in your room, you’ve changed again. Maybe you’re not happy to see me”
“Don’t think that way Skylar. About my mood, I’m going to change from now on. Is that okay?”
“Whatever, let’s just go”
I sighed frustratedly and followed her. I’m the cause of these problems. If only I hadn’t slept with Leah that day, then this wouldn’t have happened.
I’ve always despised ladies so how was I able to fall for Leah’s seduction?
“Think straight Andrian! You’re going out with the woman you love, you can’t be thinking about another woman”
my subconscious snapped
Yeah! That’s right! I need to focus on Skylar right now.
The driver drove us to one of the biggest malls in the city and we arrived there in few minutes.
My guards opened the door for I and Skylar and we both stepped down from the car at the same time as the
cool breeze hit our skin.
The guards helped us enter into the mall because lots of crazy fans were present. Thank goodness I came with them!
“She needs a beautiful and expensive wedding gown while I need a suit” I said to the attendant
“Come with me ma. She will take you sir” the attendant said pointing at someone else
I and Skylar were led to different sections of the mall and the shopping began.
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I decided to go shopping today since I’ll be leaving for Paris tomorrow. I should at least go with new clothes, make up and shoes.
After wearing my clothes, I picked up my small handbag and went into my car. My driver was seated in the car already so in a matter of time, we were on the way.
I plugged my earphones into my ear and listened to “helplessly” by Tatiana Manaois.
Within few minutes, we arrived at the mall and I went in to get the things I will be needing.
“He must be here to get her wedding dress for her, I heard their wedding will be taking place in three days time” I heard someone said beside me
“Yeah. I really envy her, how I wish I will be the one wearing the dress instead” someone else said
What are they talking about? Well, that’s not my business! I ignored them and continued shopping till I was done.
I paid for what I bought and was about taking them to the car when I saw Andrian and Skylar walking out of the mall.
They were holding hands and smiling at each other and anyone will be able to tell they’re really in love with each other.
Tears welled up in my eyes but I swallowed it in and took the items I bought to the car.
When I finally got home, I broke down in tears because I couldn’t bear it anymore.
Skylar that just arrived few days ago now has Andrian wrapped around her fingers while me that had been his childhood friend means nothing to him anymore.
He doesn’t even want to set his eyes on me and I’m sure he doesn’t even remember I exist.
Leaving for Paris is the best thing to do. I’m going to travel there tomorrow and I don’t know if I will ever return.
I feel so complete right now! Andrian is the best boyfriend so far and I think I’m the luckiest woman on earth.
Earlier on while we were at the mall, he bought jewelries and lots of dresses for me even though I still have a lot at home.
He was really caring all through and he tried his best to make me smile and not feel bored.
When we got home, the things we bought were taken inside the mansion by the maids and guards. I was surprised to see the maids so I turned to ask him but he beat me to it.
“I know you want to ask about the maids. I brought them in to do the house chores so you don’t have to stress yourself from now on” he explained
“But I’m not complaining, you shouldn’t have bothered” I said with pouted lips
“Pout those lips again and I’m going to kiss you in front of the maids” he groaned
“Really? Do I have that much effect on you?” I asked teasingly
“No, of course not! Your lips are just beautiful”
“Keep lying to yourself, you can’t fool me” I said before walking to my room
I took off my clothes and went to the bathroom. When I was done bathing, I lay on the bed and was about sleeping when my phone rang.
I picked up my phone and checked the caller. Why is Mason calling me? I answered the call after staring at it for a while.
“Hello” I said into the phone
“Hey Skylar! How are you doing?”
“I’m fine too. Are you busy?”
“No, not really. Why did you ask?”
“I was thinking if you would want to go out with me. I know Andrian doesn’t even spare you a glance but I’m
ready to spend the whole day with you. Should I pick you up?” he asked and I was kind of annoyed but I decided not to let that ruin our friendship
“I just came from the mall with Andrian, don’t worry about me” I said trying to sound as polite as I could
“That’s probably because of your wedding. You don’t have to hide things from me Skylar, I know Andrian doesn’t love you” he said and I couldn’t control my anger this time
“Andrian loves me more than you can ever imagine. The next time you say something bad about Andrian, I’ll end
our friendship. Bye” I said and ended the call without waiting for his reply
“Now that’s the Skylar I’m talking about” I said to myself with a smirk
“Arrgh!!!!” I screamed throwing my phone against the wall
How dare that little devil? Andrian loves her? But how come? They weren’t in good terms when we went for the dinner party, how come they’re back together so quickly?
Do they really love each other or did Skylar just say that to make me stay away from her?
Either way, I’m going to make her pay for messing with me. Who does she think she is to end the call on me?
“Don’t get too angry Mason. She thinks she’s in charge now but very soon, she’s going to beg at your feet. Just
be patient and endure the humiliation. It’s only for a while” my subconscious said
It’s true though! I will endure everything for now until I succeed with my plans.
After I returned home with Skylar, I called Michael and asked if he was home. I confirmed he was at home before taking my bath.
I wore my clothes and headed out of his house straight to his mansion.
“If Skylar comes downstairs, tell her I went to see my friend” I said to one of the maids before leaving
I drove for close to thirty minutes before arriving at Michael’s mansion and I didn’t waste time before going in.
Leah only gave me until the end of the week, I have to come up with something fast!!
“Hey man! What’s up? You sounded like it’s really urgent” Michael said when I got in
“Of course it’s urgent! Why then am I here?” I asked glaring at him
“Ohh… Sorry! So what’s it about?”
“It’s about Leah, she’s pregnant for me” I released the bombshell
“What are you talking about? You’re joking right?”
“Do you see a smile on my face? Why will you be asking that question when I’m damn serious?” I asked a bit angrily
“How did it happen? Did you have sex with her?”
“What kind of dumb question are you asking? How did she become pregnant if I didn’t have sex with her?”
“I’m surprised! The Andrian I know can’t even stand the sight of ladies but you had sex with Leah? If it was your
PA, then I won’t say a word because I know you’re in love with her even though you’re denying it. Besides, you’re
engaged to her. But Leah? Were you drugged?”
“I wasn’t drugged, I just couldn’t resist her body. I slept with Zoey too”
“What? You slept with Zoey and you still ended your friendship? That’s cruel”
“Well, she tried killing Skylar. I couldn’t just sit and do nothing”
“Wow! So you mean you choose your PA that hadn’t spent six months with you over your best friend of more
than twenty years? Do you now agree that you’re in love with Skylar?”
“Uhhm… Yes! We confessed our love for each other last night”
“I know and that’s why I need your help to solve this Leah’s issue. If Skylar finds out about it, she’s going to leave
me for good and I don’t think I will ever survive it.
She’s my first love, please help me out”
“Wow! Are you trying to make me feel emotional right now?
First of all, we have to be sure the child is yours”
“The pregnancy is mine. She showed me the test results and it’s the same date I slept with her.
She even told me to carry out the test in another hospital if I don’t trust her but I don’t have time for that.”
“Hmmm! If that’s the case, then it’s going to be a bit difficult” he said making me scared and anxious at the same time
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
“Now that we’re sure you own the pregnancy, you have to take responsibility for it” Michael said
“I know and I’m willing to do that but I can’t leave Skylar because of her, she’s my first love” I said tiredly
“I won’t suggest that to you because I don’t trust Leah. If she was an average girl, I would have asked you to pay
her off but it’s different. I’m honestly confused” he said truthfully
“To every problem, there’s always a solution, I just need time to think properly. But don’t think about it, you can’t
give Skylar reasons to be suspicious” he warned
“Alright. Be fast with your thinking please”
“I will try to. When you get home, make sure you take a nap” he advised
“Welcome. Let me see you off”
He followed me to where my car was parked and bade me farewell.
After speaking with Mason, I couldn’t sleep anymore so I decided to go downstairs after a while.
When I got there, I met the maids cleaning the floor and some were dusting too.
“Excuse me” I said calling their attention
“Yes ma’am?” one of them answered
“Uhhm…. Do you know if Andrian is upstairs?”
“He’s not upstairs ma’am. He asked us to tell you he went to see one of his friends”
“Ohh… ” I mouthed and thanked them before leaving
Why did he suddenly leave to see his friend after we came back from the mall? I sighed dejectedly and lay on my bed
Just when I was almost falling asleep, Mason’s call came in again. Like seriously? Why won’t he just leave me alone?
I answered the call ready to give him a piece of my mind but I stopped when I saw how sober he was.
“Skylar, I’m really sorry. I shouldn’t have said those things the other time, I let my feelings get the best of me. I’m sorry” he apologised sadly
“It’s okay Mason, just don’t let it happen again. I love Andrian and he does too, that’s more than enough for me”
“Alright. I heard about your wedding, have you gotten your dress?”
“That’s nice! I’m also preparing for my own wedding even though it’s a fake one” he said and I felt my heart skip
It feels like he’s talking about I and Andrian’s wedding. No Skylar, don’t think that way.
“Ohh… I’m sure the right lady will come at the right time” I managed to say
“I hope so too. Let me not disturb you with my boring talks, I’ll call you some other time”
“Alright, bye” I said and ended the call
Why does Mason trust his secret with me? He shouldn’t be telling anyone his marriage is fake but he told me? I
guess he must have really changed.
As I lay back on the bed, I heard a car drive in and I figured it must be Andrian. I won’t even talk to him throughout today!
We came back from the mall and the first thing he could think about is going to his friends place.
After about thirty minutes of waiting for him to come, I finally sat up. Didn’t Andrian just arrive now? How come he isn’t here yet or am I mistaken?
I walked out of my room downstairs but the maids were no longer there so I decided to check them in the kitchen.
“Who drove in just now?” I asked no one in particular
I went back upstairs and stopped in front of my room. What if something is wrong with Andrian?
I turned around and went to his room instead. Now that I think about it, this is the first time I will be coming here.
I pushed the door open and walked in. His cologne was the first thing that greeted me and I breathed it in.
I walked into the room fully and there I met Andrian fast asleep. He looks really cute when sleeping but why is he sleeping?
He came back from his friend’s place and slept immediately. Did something happen there?
I sat beside him on the bed and noticed he had a troubled look on his face. Is he going through a hard time? I feel completely helpless right now.
I stroked his hair and I saw him smile a little before the worried look on his face disappeared.
I don’t know how it happened but I woke up to find myself in his arms and I blushed lightly realizing I must have slept off while stroking his hair.
I tried freeing myself from his grip so I can go to my room but his hold on me was very tight.
I would have left his room because I’m stronger than he is but I decided to just lay there. I don’t want him to be
scared of me or something.
After some minutes, he finally woke up!
“How long have you been awake?” he asked staring at me
“What happened at your friends place?” I asked turning to face him properly
“Nothing” he said and looked away
He’s definitely hiding something, I can feel it!
“Are you hiding things from me?” I asked calmly
“I’m not hiding things from you” he stuttered
I slowly freed myself from him and wanted leaving the room but he held my hand.
“If you can’t tell me what’s wrong, then forget about our relationship. Let’s just stick to the contract we signed”
with that said, I left for Ella’s room
I knocked on the door and waited to hear her voice.
“Come in” I heard from inside
I opened the door and walked in to see her and Avery reading their books. Ella raised her head to check who it
was and when she saw it was me, she took her eyes back to what she was doing.
What’s wrong? Is she mad at me?
“Looks like someone finally remember she has a sister” she said after few minutes of silence
“It’s not like that Ella, I’ve been busy. You know I won’t just abandon you, you’re the only family I have left”
“You have my brother now and you’ve been busy with him. I’ve gotten my mind of him already. To me, he’s just
someone I’m living with and when I finally grow up, I’m living this goddamn house” Avery said for the first time since I got into the room
“A.. Avery” I stuttered in shock
“Don’t you dare call my name!” she snapped
“You’ve overstayed your welcome sis Skylar, please leave” that was Ella
“I know I’ve wronged you Skylar and I’m really sorry. I’m willing to do anything at all just to make you forgive me” I pleaded
“Really? Anything? Then let’s leave this place right now!”
“What? But you know we have nowhere to live” I stuttered
“Of course we do! When we were living alone in our parents house, you had time for me and we were okay. If
you’re not ready to go back there, then please leave!!” she screamed at me
Oh God!! I must have hurt her feelings. Ella has never shouted at me before, I feel really bad right now.
“I’m sorry Ella, I know you’re mad at me. Please ask for any other thing apart from that and I promise to do it”
“I don’t have any other thing to say, just leave”
I shook my head and moved closer to her.
“Don’t come close to me” she warned but I ignored her
I succeeded in walking to where she stood and I pulled her into a tight hug.
“I’m really sorry baby sis, big sis is sorry” I said close to tears making her burst into tears
I also couldn’t hold it in any longer so we just cried on each other’s shoulder.
After few minutes, I pulled away from the hug and wiped her tears with my palm.
“I promise to always check up on you from now on, I won’t abandon you again” I promised her while she just
nodded her head
I know she must be feeling lonely now because Andrian isn’t here so I have to make her part of us.
I pulled her into a hug for some minutes before pulling away.
“Always see me as your sister also, okay?” she nodded her head slowly
“Don’t feel lonely because Andrian isn’t here, I’ll help you talk to him” I assured her
“Thank you Aunt Skylar” she said with a small smile
I ruffled her hair returning the smile at the same time.
“You guys should continue reading, I’ll go talk to Andrian”
“Alright sis” they chorused
I winked at them before leaving the room in search of Andrian!!
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
After Skylar left, I lay in my bed and just stared at the ceiling. She said I should forget about our relationship if I
can’t tell her what’s wrong and she isn’t someone I can lie to.
If I try to lie to her, she will figure it out immediately and that would only worsen the situation.
But then again, am I brave enough to tell her Leah is pregnant for me? If I tell her, there’s a possibility she will
end things with me but if she hears it from someone else, the outcome would be disastrous.
Just what exactly am I supposed to do? I stared at the ceiling lost in thought when I suddenly heard the door to my room open.
Skylar?? Did she change her mind? I will be so happy if that’s it!
“We need to talk” she said avoiding my gaze
“About what?” I asked sitting up
“When was the last time you checked up on Avery?” she asked and it came like a shock to me
I wasn’t expecting it to be about Avery, I thought she wanted talking about us. When she noticed I wasn’t saying
anything, she decided to continue.
“You shouldn’t abandon her like that, you’re hurting her feelings and making her seem less important.
I noticed it wasn’t like that before I came here and now that there’s nothing between us anymore except the
contract, can you please spend time with her like you used to?
The only family she has left is you so you shouldn’t make her feel alone. Please… ” she concluded but I just stared at her
The only thing I was able to hear among what she said is that there’s nothing between us anymore.
“Are you breaking up with me?” I asked stuttering a bit
“Was that the only thing you heard?”
“Why are you breaking up with me?”
“It’s simple. You don’t want to tell me what’s bothering you meaning you’re keeping secrets from me so I see no
reason why we should be together”
“I didn’t say I won’t tell you”
“Fine then, tell me” she said facing me
“I will tell you later, not now”
“Okay then. We can continue the relationship after you tell me. The most important thing is that you need to
apologise to Avery and spend more time with her from now on. I will take my leave now” with that said, she stood up and walked away
How am I going to tell her about Leah’s pregnancy? I’m really scared because if she ends things with me, I don’t think I will survive it.
I took in a deep breath and went to Avery’s room to apologise just like Skylar said.
I stared at the glass of wine in my hands with a smirk on my face. Andrian thinks he’s wise? Well I’m going to
show him that I’m wiser.
Zoey will be leaving for Paris tomorrow so I will be able to do whatever I want.
The reason why I changed my mind about waiting for three months is because I heard that Andrian will be
getting married to Skylar.
As long as I’m alive, I’m going to make sure both of them never get married. I will disturb Andrian every second
with my calls.
I know once Skylar hears about my pregnancy, she will have no choice but to end things with Andrian and I will
step into the picture.
Everything is just going on smoothly and I guess it’s because of Mira’s death. She’s like a sacrifice that paved way for me and I’ll forever be grateful to her. I kind of miss her though!
I said a quick prayer and took my bath before going downstairs. I planned to go to the company today but I’m
trying my best to avoid Andrian so I won’t be going today.
If he doesn’t tell me what’s wrong, I don’t have any plan of talking to him anymore.
When I got downstairs, Avery and Ella were dressed for school already and were about leaving.
“Ella! Avery! How was your night?” I said making them turn back
“It was fine sis Skylar. Good morning” they chorused
“That’s great then. Have a nice day at school!”
“Bye” they waved at me and left
Few minutes after they left, I saw Andrian coming downstairs dressed for work already. I paid no attention to him
as I just focused my gaze on my phone.
“Good morning Skylar” he greeted
“Morning” I answered not looking up from my phone and I heard him sigh
“Can’t you just forget about it already?” he asked but I kept quiet and pretended not to hear
“Fine. I’ll tell you when I return from work” he said but I still didn’t say a thing so he just left for work
I’m even beginning to have second thoughts. Should I just forget about whatever it is and move on with my relationship with him?
But from the way he’s acting, I think it’s something important and something that might affect our relationship.
It’s better to solve it now than for it to cause problem for us later on.
Our wedding will be taking place tomorrow and it’s making me feel kind of nervous and scared at the same time.
I know I told Andrian
to make the papers fake but I actually wish they were real cause I will love to spend the rest of my life with him.
Well, that doesn’t matter! If we’re meant to be, we can always have the real wedding after the contract expires.
I’ve just been sleeping since morning after Andrian left from work. Although I ate breakfast and I’ve eaten lunch
but apart from that, I’ve been sleeping.
I waited patiently for Andrian to return from work so he can tell me whatever he has to say.
When I waited but didn’t see him, I decided to go play with Ella and Avery.
We talked, laughed and made jokes. During those times, the only thing I was thinking about was Andrian.
Is he okay? Or could it be that he’s waiting for me to go to bed before coming home so he won’t be able to tell me what he wants to?
“Sis Skylar, we want to sleep now. It’s late” Avery said jolting me out of my thoughts
“Yeah, I’m feeling sleepy” Ella said with a yawn
“Alright girls, sleep tight” I said with a smile and covered then with the duvet before going to my room
After few minutes of laying in my bed without sleeping, I heard the sound of a car. So Andrian finally decided to
come home huh?
I walked to the top of the stairs and waited for him at a corner there.
When he got inside the sitting room, he looked up and made sure everywhere was clear before he started
tiptoeing up the stairs.
I shook my head and waited patiently for him to get up the stairs before coming out of my hiding place.
He was shocked and startled to see me but I remained indifferent
“Are you avoiding me?” I asked after staring at him for a while
“I… I’m n.. not avoiding you” he stuttered looking everywhere but me
“Fine then! You’re not avoiding me! Let’s go to your room because you have something to tell me” I said leading the way
Seeing he had no choice, he followed me!
“So, what is it you want to say?” I asked and I saw him swallow hard
I don’t think I will like whatever it is he wants to say.
“Errm…. L… Promise me you won’t end things with me after I tell you this” he said staring at me pitifully
“I already ended things with you but whatever it is you want to tell me will determine if we’re going to get back
together or not. I can’t promise you anything” I said looking away from him
“It’s fine then. It’s my fault anyway so I should face the consequences of my action”
“Be fast Andrian, I’m feeling sleepy” I muttered sitting on his bed
“L.. Leah is pregnant for me” he said and I felt my head spin for a while before the sleep finally disappeared
He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I stared at Andrian like he had suddenly gone nuts.
“What did you say?” I managed to say after snapping out of my thoughts
“Leah is pregnant for me. Believe me, I didn’t want to do it. She had come to my office to seduce me that day and
I don’t know how it resulted in pregnancy. It was just once, please forgive me” he pleaded almost in tears
“When did it happen” I asked after staring into space for a long time
“It… It happened after the contract but it was before our engagement and before we confessed our feelings”
“Okay” I said standing up
“Where are you headed?” he asked holding my hand
“I’m heading to my room. Can you please not touch me from now on? Don’t come near me not to talk of holding
my hand until further notice” I said and took off his hands before walking out of his room
I got to my room and locked the door properly before bursting into tears. Why me? Why can’t I be happy for once?
Just when I fell in love with someone who feels the same for me, this had to happen. Am I meant to be sad and alone throughout my lifetime?
If Leah wasn’t in the picture then I don’t think anything can come in between I and Andrian but now that Leah is involved, I feel totally helpless.
“Don’t cry Skylar, you’re a strong lady” I said to myself after crying for a while
There’s no need to cry over spilled milk, the deed has been done already but I don’t trust that Leah one bit.
What if she’s not even pregnant at all? Or what if the pregnancy belongs to someone else?
I think I have to investigate the matter myself so I can get to the bottom of this.
If it happens that Andrian really owns the pregnancy, then I will leave him for Leah but if the pregnancy is not real or doesn’t belong to Andrian, I’m going to show her the stuff I’m made off.
With that new determination, I wandered off to dreamland.
I sat down and just stared into space. I already told Skylar the truth so I wonder how things will turn out now.
Will she still love me like she did before or she’s going to hate me completely now?
I thought about it over and over again until sleep took over me.
I woke up the next morning and stood up to take my bath but when I remembered what I told Skylar last night, I
sat on the bed again.
How am I even supposed to face her this morning? Our wedding is to take place today and I’m sure Skylar must have left the house by now in order to prepare for the wedding.
I sluggishly stood up and went to take my bath. When I was done, I wore my clothes and headed downstairs.
I for into one of my cars and the driver drove to the venue where the wedding was to take place.
Within few minutes, the wedding started but Skylar hadn’t arrived. It’s not time for her to be here though but I just wish I could see her before going inside.
I went in when it was time and we did the necessary things before Skylar was called in.
Her white gown looked really beautiful and fitted her perfectly, I just wish we could be together till the end.
The pastor explained some things to us about the new life we were about going into. He told us there will be tough times and some other things to.
All through the time the pastor was preaching, my eyes were on Skylar. She didn’t act like anything happened between us last night and it was making me anxious.
“Do you Andrian Carter take Skylar Brandon as your lawful wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish until death do you
apart?” the Priest asked me
“I do” I answered almost immediately
“Do you Skylar Brandon take Andrian Carter as your lawful husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward,
for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish until death do you apart?” the Priest asked Skylar
She kept quiet and for a moment, I thought she was going to say no.
“I do” I heard her beautiful voice and heaved a sigh of relief
The Priest pronounced us husband and wife after we exchanged rings.
“You may now kiss your bride” the priest said and I gulped nervously before raising the veil.
I almost gasped due to how beautiful Skylar looked, it was almost impossible for me to recognize her.
I pulled her into a slow but quick kiss when I heard murmurings from the audience.
After we were done with that, we went for the reception and the wedding came to an end.
We got into our car and drove to the airport where my private jet was. Few minutes later, we were on our way to Paris for our honeymoon.
I already assigned someone to take care of Ella and Avery in our absence. I also told Michael to check up on them everyday.
After some hours of being in the jet, we arrived at Paris. During the ride, I and Skylar didn’t say a word to each other. I won’t blame her though because I’m the one at fault.
We packed our bags and went to the hotel we booked online already.
We got to the and saw that it had only a bed in it. There’s no way Skylar will agree to sleep on the same bed with me so I will sleep on the couch instead.
I took off my clothes and went to the bathroom to take a shower. When I got back to the room, Skylar already took off her gown and was left in a short towel.
I guess she also wants to take a shower but she looks tempting in the towel. I shrugged the thoughts off and
wore my shorts and singlet.
By the time she returned, I was laying on the couch already so she just wore her night dress and slept on the bed without saying a word.
We’re to spend three days here, is this how we’re going to continue for three days? This is going to be harder than I imagined.
I banged my hand angrily on the table. How dare Andrian? How dare he proceed with the wedding and abandon me here?
I was trying everything I could to stop the wedding and that was why I kept disturbing him with calls but he still went on with the wedding.
The deed has been done and there’s no going back but I’m going to make sure their marriage doesn’t last for two months.
Since they are together now, I think this is the best time to carry out my plans. I’m going to keep disturbing Andrian with my calls and that will make Skylar suspicious.
I will make sure she finds out that I’m pregnant for Andrian before the end of their honeymoon. That’s a promise I plan to keep.
Andrian is going to regret ever sleeping with me. I will make sure he gets married to me before the world finds out about my pregnancy.
Although he’s not responsible for the pregnancy but I’ve decided to pin it on him and he has no choice because there’s no way he will ever find out the truth. I will make sure of that.
