"I'll call you later, ma," I told my mom over the phone. "Bye."
After saying that to her, I hung up the call immediately. Digging my phone into the pocket of my sweatpants, I took in a deep breath, raised my neck to look at the dark sky. The place was silent, just perfect for my evening.
I had been so worked up that I had decided to come out to enjoy myself for the evening. I didn't like to go out very much, but anytime I did, I loved to enjoy it to the fullest.
I grouched a little, and sat on the roadside bench. It had been a month since I slept with any lady, which was kind of weird. Well, tonight, I really felt like enjoying myself, but I would kind of feel guilty in a way.
Fine, Adrienne didn't like me yet, so that meant I could still enjoy myself with any other lady. But what if she got to find out or something? Would she give me a
I watched them as they hugged passionately. I was so angry, but what could I do? He was my ex-husband, she was my best friend. If I reacted, I could hurt Claire's feelings. The bad thing was, he was deceiving her. What was he going to gain by deceiving many women?She hadn't stopped crying. She was even sobbing so hard, crying as if she got hit by a strong hammer. What confused me was why she was crying. Did Sebas do something to her as well? Why was she being this emotional?"My baby." He smiled, stroking her hair.Baby? She was his baby? This was so annoying. Couldn't they respect the fact I was here?"Se-Se-Sebastian." She wept harder. Maybe I had to help her out. He had probably broken her heart before."Claire?" I was kind of worried. I soothed her back, trying to catch a glimpse of her face. "Is something going on? Why are you crying?" I raised my eyes to
Adrienne________I slipped on a black jean trouser and a white sneakers. Since it was quite cold these days, I topped my tank top with a grey sweater. Today, I decided to leave my long dark hair to fall. I didn't always have to keep it in a ponytail. After adding lip gloss to my lips, I stepped out of the closet, heading to the kitchen."Sup, girl?" I greeted Claire. Hearing my voice, she spun around, smiled at me, and dropped a slice of pizza on the empty plate in front of me."How was your night? I hope you weren't affected by what had to happen last night?" She asked, fretting."Worrywart. I've forgotten about that. Well, thanks to your brother." I ate from my pizza. "And seriously, I'm still surprised that he's your brother. I ought to break your teeth for lying to me about your last name."She chuckled, sat on the s
"Don't touch me." I gritted my teeth.He sighed, stepped backwards, still smiling. Rubbing his right palm against his forehead, he set his gaze at me. "You seriously have to stop acting this way," he said.I dropped my hands on my waist. "You wanna keep blaming me?""No, no," he rebuked. "It's just that I kind of think you're being quite judgemental. I wasn't angry because you said those things about my mood and all. I was angry because…""Because?" I raised an eyebrow."Nevermind. I don't wanna say it. I'm sorry."I rolled my eyes, moved my arms to my chest. "Alright. I'll take that. But seriously, I hate it. Stop venting your frustration on me. It isn't nice.""I'll change, ma'am. This boy's still learning." He winked."Then learn fast. It's gross that you keep on being too cold. Don't
Strolling on the silent street, I couldn't help but weep. To be honest, this was a really really sad moment for me. And from the way I seemed so emotional, it kind of seemed like— No. It wasn't possible. There was no way I felt anything for that man. I had gone over my feelings a long time ago. I sniffed, rubbed off the ugly tears from my cheek, and walked into Claire's small compound. Taking a deep breath, I knocked on the door. I particularly tried to act fine because I didn't want her to be worried.Soon, she opened the door. "Ady!" She exclaimed, worry plastering all through her. "Why are you home this late? Did something happen to you?""Oh, sorry for that." I walked in, dropped my bag on the couch, and twirled around to face her. "I had to do some important things. I'm fine. Nothing happened.""You're sure?" She shoved my hands into hers. "I mean, you look… tired. Did something happen? Have you been…" she scrunched her face. "Crying?"I chuckled anxiously, pulled away from her
"What?" A word finally spilled from his mouth."Yes," I replied sharply. "If that's what you need to know in order to leave her, then yes, that's the truth. We're together. She belongs to me."He closed his mouth, swallowed, moved his eyes to Adrienne. "Is this true, Ady?" He asked her.She kept quiet. Turning my neck to look at her, I was surprised to see her staring at me. She glared so much, tears welled in her eyes. The anger I saw in her eyes was as if she got hit by an extinguisher. Was she going to spare me?"No," she bit out. "He isn't telling the truth."I widened my eyes. "What? What are—"She jerked her hand from mine, fixed her gaze at Dave. A tear rolled from her eye, and she swallowed."He's right in saying we used to be a married couple, but that's not it anymore," she uttered, sounding quite angered. Her
Adrienne________A thick pain brushed at the back of my head as I laid on my bed. It felt as if a laden was thrown on my body. I was almost glued to the bed. Gradually, I began to sit up, using my fingers to press the keen pain that teased from my head to my neck region."Claire?" I mumbled, shutting my eyes, still half asleep. "Are you there?"Noticing I didn't get a response, I slowly opened my eyes. Scrolling my eyes through the place, I observed she wasn't in here."Oh, shit!" I cursed underneath my breath, the pain aggravating.Groaning a little, I grabbed my phone from the side table, dialed Claire's number. I could step out of the room to get a Tylenol myself, but I was too tired for that.The moment I clicked the call button, the door opened up. Good for me, it was her.She walked in, holding a tray
It was four o'clock in the evening. A lot of students were in the hallway, probably planning to be on their way home. I walked with Tessa, holding a bunch of textbooks in my arm."Have you heard anything from your project mate?" She asked.I shook my head. "I'm not sure, but I think he's sick.""Is he aware that the project has been extended?"Taking a turn to the next hallway, I sighed. "No. I guess he'll know about that when he resumes.""He better resumes soon." She smiled warmly. "You guys need to start working really harder. It seems like you haven't been able to properly work on your project for a couple of days. Maybe you should visit him or something. If he's sick, you can both try to work at his place, right?"I let out a shaky chuckle. "Sure. I haven't thought of that before. Maybe that's what I'll do.""Hey, ladies.
"I don't think we're doing the right thing. Don't you think he still needs some time alone?" I suggested to Claire as we walked into Sebastian's big compound.She slapped my back, frowned a little. "If you ruin this, no dinner for you anymore. He doesn't need to be alone. He's literally been alone for too long. Are you nervous?"Oh. She got me."Yes," I confessed.She gasped, slapped my back again. "How can you be nervous? He loves you, doesn't he? When I wanna deal with Dave, I don't get nervous."I rolled my eyes. "Whatever. Dave is really nice, ok? Sebastian is clearly different."We reached the huge door that led to the inside of his house, stood in front of it, stared at each other."Forget about the niceness. All guys are the same, huh?" She took her time to get her door card from her purse. I totally forget
