I stared at them as they kissed intensely. I could hardly state anything. I wasn't sure if I was really seeing what I was seeing. They didn't even notice I was standing there for about three minutes already. I was really broken. The Drake I knew could never do such. I trusted him so much.
"Ok babe. Get your bra off or I'll strip it immensely." He stated as he pulled away from their tremendous kiss, and started unbuttoning his shirt. What an idiot he was He was so deep in his romance that he couldn't even notice me.
"Drake." I managed to call softly.
I couldn't even think for a moment. I wasn't sure I was still alive. I didn't feel human. My sense was numb. It seemed like my brain disappeared and my skull was filled with cobwebs and dusts. Words could not explain my emotions. For a moment, I wished I was dead so I wouldn't have observed this terrific scene.
He flinched, gaping as soon as he turned to me. He was obviously shocked to see me there. "M--Mia?" He stuttered.
He immediately jumped from his bed, pushing the lady away, and hurrying to me.
He stood in my front as we stared at each other, dumbly. He looked embarrassed and extremely surprised. I couldn't say a thing. My senses felt so null.
"Mia. I can explain." He cried.
"Explain what?" I asked sharply. I wasn't okay, but I was well prepared to attack any dumb explanation he had to give. I didn't think there was any reason for him to cheat on me. To me, I was the best girlfriend anyone could ever wish for. I never complained about anything he did. I hardly got angry at him. I never complained about his constant irritation, or the fact that he drank alcohol stupidly, always. So what was his stupid reason?!
"Mia, you've gotta calm down babe." He spoke.
"Calm down? What the heck are you even saying?" I asked in a soft hurl.
"Yeah. You've gotta come down and let me speak."
"Drake, you have no excuse." Tears well in my eyes.
"Why the disturbance?" The lady's voice sounded from behind. She sauntered to Drake, and snaked her arms across his shirtless body, starting to kiss his neck from behind. "I fucking need you now babe. Who's this thing?"
Woah, she called me a thing? That wasn't even the issue alone. She even had the gut to touch my man like that? I hadn't even been so romantic to him like that before. But however, that was not my concern at the moment, I needed to know what was happening first.
"I'm coming pie. Try to control yourself for a few minutes. I'm also as ready. Let me settle the scores here ok?" He said to her, and pressed a kiss against her wet lips.
That was his limit. I needed to stop staring at him like a dummy, especially due to the fact that I was seeing the only person I loved, romancing a lady.
"Drake!" I yelled, causing him to shudder. "Are you crazy? What the heck is going on?!"
He closed his eyes and rubbed his hands against his face, waving his hands dumbly in the air. "Common... enough of this cold attitude. I'm not in for this now. I've got no time for this. You interrupted us in the middle of something you know?"
"What?!" I hollered faintly. He didn't even seem sorry. His embarrassed look faded away totally as soon as the lady came to him. He didn't even look sorry in any way. What the heck was happening to my Drake?
"Mia dear." He called as he folded his arms across his chest, and stared at me indifferently. "Like I said, I'm not in for this trash, so I'll go straight to my point."
I blinked away the tears that welled in my eyes, trying so hard to prevent it from dropping. It would be so embarrassing for me to cry in front of them.
"The thing is..." He started say whatever he had to. The lady behind him smirked at me as if she was proud of herself, rubbing her hands seductively on his chest. "I've always wanted to state everything to you. But due to the fact that you aren't loved by anyone, I've always tried to help you out." He said.
I trembled and tried so hard to hide my pain. "Ok. State it all to me now."
"You sure?" He asked.
"Yes." I replied to him firmly.
"Mia," He continued to speak "It might sound stupid, but it's the truth. The thing is, I've never felt true love for you. I'm sorry for this but that's it. I only wanted to hook up with you. And, you know, you didn't give me a chance to. Whenever I tried, it's either you refused or you get moody about something happening in your life. And then, I forget my aim."
I still set my gaze on him, unmoving. His words indeed sounded stupid. I didn't want to believe him.
"And also, whenever you tell me about the shits in your life, I feel guilty for having to pretend to like you." He added as he scratched the back of his neck. "I felt obliged to you, which was something I never wanted, or planned for. I felt it was important to comfort you even though I didn't want to."
"Oh." I mentioned as I averted from our gaze. I couldn't bear it anymore. Staring at him made me so bitter and confused. I didn't know the perfect word to explain my feelings. All I wished was that I wasn't experiencing it.
"So you only pretended to love me out of pity?" I managed to ask, not facing him directly.
"Yeah. I guess." He replied, sounding apathetic.
I stared at the floor and chuckled wearily. The tears that blurred my vision disappeared suddenly. Even my tears refused to experience the tremendous experience. If my tears could not stick to me when I needed it, then absolutely nothing could be trusted. I was such a fool to trust him, but how could I have known? I didn't even have anyone to guide me on how I was to deal with life.
I wore a faint smile, a smile that had horrendous pain behind it, a smile that I couldn't explain where it was coming from, a smile that tried to hold my broken pieces. It was an unfathomable smile.
"So, it's over between us then?" I asked as I raised my head to look into his eyes. He looked less concerned about how I was feeling.
"Yep. Automatically." He responded sharply.
I still wore my faint smile, and moved closer to cup his hands in mine. "Drake, I also need to tell you something." I told him.
He raised his brows in discomfort. I guessed his dumb play girl, or now, his girlfriend, felt jealous. "What?" He asked as he removed his hands from mine.
"Oh sorry." I said. "I've forgotten that you aren't mine anymore. Or was never mine."
I sighed, and started to speak, "I don't care how you've ever felt about me. It's nice to hear your confession. At least, I'm not being greedy anymore by forcing you to stay with me, even though it was unknowingly. I didn't know you didn't like me and you were only in a bondage."
"You're right." He affirmed what I said.
"Drake," I continued. "My opinion about you was different. So, before I'll let you go forever, I want you to know that you were the best thing that ever happened to me. You were the only one that comforted me when no one was around. You were the only thing I appreciated in my entire life. You were the best."
I swallowed the lump in my throat. "You were a gift, a blessing, my joy, my everything."
"Well, that's over now." He stated as he pecked his lover.
I felt bitter as I stated everything, and felt even more bitter as he showed nothing but apathy.
"Thank you for being part of my life. Although you are now a history, I still appreciate your comfort. But unfortunately, comfortability doesn't last forever. Thanks again." I finally stated as I turned to take my leave.
I couldn't speak further. He didn't seem to have interest in all I was saying. All he was interested in was the fun they were about to have. A fun called 'Lust.'
I stepped out of his house, and froze for a while. I needed to leave the vicinity. It only brought sad memories and nothing else. My heart was burning more. I didn't know where I was heading, but I was willing to be patient for 'destiny.' I needed to leave the next phase of my life to 'destiny.'
LINDAI glanced through the pictures of some damsels on my phone as I sipped from my cup of coffee. I was so screwed up with finding a bride for my nephew, Ace. It was really frustrating already. Mia was my last hope, although I didn't like her that much. She was somewhat rude and unfriendly even though her parents were so nice. I liked her at first but she didn't act all cool.I stood up from my bed and dropped my phone on the side table in frustration, heading to my bathroom to take a shower. I tried resisting the urge to tell my sis I was tired of looking for a bride for her son. It was only getting me worked up.She was so intense in it and it irritated me. I wondered how anyone could still think of an arranged marriage. But well, I couldn't blame her. Her son was a terribly cold man.I knew
"Rude?" I asked as I creased my arms across my chest. "I'm speaking the truth you know?""Who the heck are you?!" She hollered, still in between clenched teeth."You don't need to know who I am." I was so indifferent to her. "Don't yell at me, ok?""Why shouldn't I?" She asked sharply. "How is killing myself even your problem?"I glared harder, literally furious at the fact that she ought to be thanking me for saving her life. Did she think she was some kind of cartoon character who could be saved at any time? We were speaking of “death” here!"You know what? I think I made a mistake by saving you from drowning." "Yeah, you did," she bit out. "Alright." I scrunched my nose, getting more irritated by the attitude she was giving me. Not thinking further, I reached for her waist, and shove her into my arms. "I'll throw you back in there," I announced. . "W—what? Leave me! You idiot! What the heck is wrong with you? How can you drop me in the water?" She cried, hitting her hands against
I rolled on my bed uncomfortably. I didn't know what the fuck was obstructing my sleep but it was literally frustrating."Arrgh!" I grumbled as I sat up. "What the heck is wrong with this bed?"I yawned and tugged my pillow against my chest, turning to my side clock."Oh my gosh!" I cried as I jumped from my bed. "10:00am?!"My parents were definitely going to kill me. I was sure my mum had done the chores and was planning to hit and trouble my ass.I jumped from my bed and gadded to my bathroom, grabbing my toothbrush and pressing a paste against it.I stared at myself in the old three feet mirror in my bathroom. I indeed looked terrible, as Linda had stated the day before. My eyes were swollen even though I didn't cry that much. I only cried when I was on that asshole arm. My hair was in such a mess that if a child saw me, he'd definitely think I was a zombie or something.I
"Saturday?!" I exclaimed as I stood from my seat. "That's in two days time. How is that even going to be possible?""Oh my dear." Mrs Norman said. "I understand that you think this is close but I need you to also understand that this needs to be done so soon.""But why?" I asked. "I mean, why the rush? We've got enough time.""Are you interested in this or not?" Ace stated, causing me to turn to him."I--I..." I tried to speak but my dad caught me in."The thing is that she's so worried about the expenses. That's it." He stated and let out a shaky chuckle.My parents, dumbest human in the world. All they cared for was money. They didn't even care about my feelings. How could they agree to get their daughter married to a random person who proposetwo days ago? I didn't expect less though."Oh, the money." Mr Norman finally spoke. "We understand that you guys don't hav
I stepped into my closet, dropping my towel on its holder and slipping on a grey sweat pants, together with a silky, black, tank top. I walked out of the closet and sauntered to my bed.My day was so frustrating. It was 7:00pm, but, I decided to sleep. All of Ace's threat were ringing in my mind. I didn't know how dangerous he was. But from my observation, he seemed really dangerous. Even his mother was scared of him. What the fuck?I dunked into my bed and swung my duvet across my body. I stared at the ceiling and meditated on my next step. I only had a night to decide. I didn't know whether to stop the wedding or not. I wondered what was going on in Ace mind. It was better to not start something that would be unable to be stopped.I thought for a while and finally made my decision. The wedding was gonna be called off. At least it was only recently planned. A lot of guest couldn't have been invited already though.
I stared at myself in the mirror. I looked so stressed out and weary. I could hardly sleep. I was in a crazy dilemma. A dilemma that didn't worth my thought or time.Even when I tried to sleep, Ace's words attacked me in my dream. I had been threatened a lot in my life, but none of it seemed so scary like Ace's. I wondered how he did that. His glare alone, frightened me so bad. How on Earth was I going to survive, if I got married to him?I sighed and walked to my door, opening it, and shutting it gently as soon as I was out. Although my mind wasn't supporting my decision, I was willing to do it for Mrs Norman. It wouldn't be nice to hurt the old lady. I was willing to listen to whatever he had to say. What if he was only sputtering false threat? And what if he was being serious? I was so puzzled. How could my own life be confusing me?I walked down the stairs, carefully, and observed everyone in the living room. M
I stared at him as I quaked like a child who was about to take an injection. It didn't seem like he cared about how scared I was. That was if he even noticed. All he could do was scowl at me vehemently. I tugged the wall tightly and breathe heavily. I tried so hard to conceal my extreme fear, but it seemed like it was to no avail."What do you think?" He finally spoke. "I'd touch you?" He questioned."I don't care what you have to say, just let me go." I pleaded as I hurried to grab my cloth from the tiny stood and wrapped it across my chest.He simpered and moved backwards, walking to mirror. "Have you even checked yourself through this before?" He asked."Can you please go now? You can see I'm not well dressed." I resented.He let out a chuckle and turned back at me. "Oh sorry." He said sarcastically.He moved closer to me and stood in my front, still wearing a grouchy look. "Befo
I boiled vigorously within me, as I stared at Ace. He tightened his hands into a fist like he was going to hit me soon, and glowered irritatingly.I turned to Mrs Norman again. She looked so worried and suddenly seemed pale. She turned from my gaze and bent her head, staring at her laps and clinging her fingers against one another.Was she crying? Or praying?"Pardon?" The priest said, causing me to turn to him.I was zoned off in my thought that I totally forgot I was getting married. Ace's threat were the only things I could think of."Oh, I'm so sorry." I apologized.I turned to the crowd. Their eyes were vehemently on me. They all seemed shocked."Oh sorry everyone, I--I'm just so excited. I was so zoned off that I didn't realize when he asked me that. Sorry again." I uttered, and let out a fake chuckle.
