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.
"Your jet is ready sir." One of Ace's workers mentioned as he bowed his head."Ok." He replied as he sauntered to wherever he was going.I rolled my eyes and traipsed behind him. How rude! I was still on my wedding gown for damn sake! How embarrassing could it be to amble behind your groom? Itseemed like we had a fight on our wedding night. Stupid wedding night!Soon, we were in front of a jet. A private jet. I was so amazed. I had hardly even been in an aeroplane before, speaking of a private jet! But in a way, instead of being excited, I was furious and stressed out. I had hardly eaten anything or hardly slept in the last two days. I needed to relax my mind. Ace's threat alone was enough to make me feel ill."Will you keep standing there?" His voice sounded, snapping me out of my thought of how surprising it was to physically see a private jet."Oh. I'm coming." I responded.<
"Please Ace." I cried. "I'm not ready for this. Please." I pleaded.He moved back a little and stared into my eyes. "What's with your courage now?" He asked."I don't know. Just let me go." I begged vehemently."There's one thing you need to know. When I say something, that's what I do." He uttered."Can't you hire a lady to comfort you?" I asked, almost crying.I couldn't just let him have me like that. Even my lover didn't touch me for more than a year we were together, and here was the guy I only knew for four days, trying to hook up with me."Who told you I need your comfort?" He asked as he smirked at him.What was he saying again? He didn't need my comfort? What did he even want? He was earnestly confusing my already confused self.Before I could ask anythingfurther, hestood a bit and jolted at my neck and kneel, holding me up with
MIAI frowned as I creased my arms across my chest. I was damn frustrated already. How long was I planning to pretend? I only acted for less than twenty four hours, but it seemed like forever already. Everything was just so frustrating.I still thought about everything, but the elevator slowly drew my attention. It seemed to move slower than normal. I wasn't used to it, but I knew it was definitely not okay."Is this thing ok?" I asked in a fretting tone. As expected, he ignored.I became more nervous as it moved slower. It felt like it was about to hang. Before I could utter anything further it stopped. I turned to Ace who seemed to be observing the thing.Soon, the light cut off, and we were overshadowed in darkness. I became scared. I hated darkness so much. It always reminded me of the way my parents made me suffer when I was younger.They'd beat the hell out of me and thr
I stared at the amazing area, as we drove through the streets. I had never seen anything so beautiful like the place, in my entire life. It was a true definition of elegance.The estate expelled big houses. It was obviously for the rich and big guys. The more we drove, the more enticing the place was. It was really great to have fun. Maybe I could come out in a while to enjoy myself. At least, that could save me from his stress.And soon, he honked in front of a high fence. The outside was beautiful too. The huge gate opened up and we drove into a long drive way. We got out of the car as soon as we packed it in the garage. Even the garage was a gigantic one.I couldn't help but wide open my mouth and eyes. Was this his house? This was definitely the reason he thought I needed his money. I had never seen anything like it before. The compound was so large, and the building which was suspended in middle, was enormously huge
I sat by the balcony and stared at the view from it. The view I found interesting, was now as frustrating as shit.It was almost a month since we got married and my life had been a living hell. My daily routine was to wake up, eat, watch TV and sleep. What a stupid life.I had hardly seen Ace in those weeks. I only saw him about twice, since we returned from our fake honeymoon. I was literally tired of my life. I never imagined my marital life to be like this.Slowly, I was getting rid of Drake. He was hardly on my mind anymore. Even when I saw his posts, it didn't have much effect on me, or any effect on me. I was finally able to ignore him.But, I still missed his company a bit. Not as a boyfriend, but as a comforter, or friend. I was damn tired of living with Ace.The last two times I saw him, I confronted him for the reason he kept me in this bondage. All he could do was to ignore. And even when he spoke,
I got back from accompanying Emily to her car, and stepped into my room. I was damn exhausted already. My day was super stressful. But thanks to Emily, I didn't feel it so much.I smiled on remembering her cute smile and her jokes tonight. She was so amazing. She reminded me of the times we used to have fun together.For some reason, I regretted the fact I was married already. It made me feel less free with her, and that wasn't supposed to be. Firstly, I wasn't committed to my marriage, and secondly, she was the only one who was there for me, when I needed someone. She was the only one that knew my past, and the only that helped me to be normal again. I felt like I was betraying her.I sighed and rubbed my hands again my forehead, trying to get rid of the horrible thoughts.I spotted Mia on the couch and turned away. She was the one who was making me feel this way, and I didn't know why.I sat on my
