If you are looking for a flawless male character, this is not for you.
I repeat this is not for you.
If you are looking for that dashing, successful, Romantic, loving, handsome, and perfect man, I am not the one. I am far from being perfect.
And if you're thinking I'm going to be somehow redeemed by some woman, sorry not sorry to burst your bubble. I am not redeemable.
This is why you need to stop reading because I will definitely break your heart and shatter every bit of hope you have for me. But then again I don't care about your feelings. I have never cared for anyone's feelings. I am a self-centered man who only cares for himself and himself alone and in the process, I am about to lose the greatest gift life has ever given to me.
But do I still care?
So I am warning you one last time, find something else to read because I will break you and you would curse the day you read this prologue.
But if you still want to continue, My name is Grey Storm, and don't say I didn't warn you enough.
My name is Ava Jones and I made the greatest mistake of my life by trying to redeem a man I should have given up on. I am fighting for my life beneath an oxygen mask, IV tube connected to my wrist, and the EKG slowly counting down to my last day, hour, minute, and second.
I don't know if I'll survive this but I hope and pray that I do.
It is often said that people who have unfinished business don't die. I hope I don't because I have unfinished business with the man who ruined me, the one who made my life what it is.
Please read my story and don't judge me. I did all I did out of love but I loved the wrong person and the consequences became fatal even for my strong-willed body.
Did I learn?
I know Grey would have told you not to read this story, typical him. He thinks he's too bad, but I beg to differ. Beneath all that callous attitude, I know there's a sweet soul waiting to be unleashed.
But how do you save someone who doesn't want to be saved?
Chapter 2Ava"Mrs Storm, I think it'll be better if you call it a night" Catalina our housekeeper showed up behind me with a kitchen towel in hand.I heaved a deep sigh, my eyes glued on the table. All efforts down the drain just like every other year. I held on to the skinny stem of the wine goblet and took the last drop of red wine before answering Catalina."It's our fourth anniversary Catalina, I don't even know why I thought this would be different" I swallowed back every urge to cry in one gulp of saliva. I had hoped a sinkhole would appear, swallow and free me from all this madness. Not only did I get myself into a loveless marriage, but I was also unfortunate enough to fall victim to an asshole who couldn't care less whether or no
Chapter 3Ava"You're drunk Ava, you're in no position to drive," Frederico said as he helped me balance on my feet as I staggered."Trust me, Freddy this is not the first time I'm drunk driving, I can take care of it. I'm just a twenty-six years old woman who's living a boring life, can't I have fun sometimes?""Yes you can and I'll drive you home."I plopped myself down on the passenger seat while Freddy went to the driver's side to start the car."You know I can totally use a dick right now Freddy," I sa
Chapter 4Years backAva"Thank you," I said to the bartender who dropped another bottle of their strongest scotch on my table.Here I am at midnight in a bar located in the heart of Vegas celebrating my break up from a five-month relationship.I was dumped. I might add used too.Every relationship ended up pretty much the same for me and I just couldn't help telling them I own a company by inheritance and afterwards, they'd see me as a money-making machine as well as looking for ways to extort money from me. I know I should have known better but isn't love True, and Honest?"I'm back" Freddy announced as he returned to his seat after a quick leak in the toilet."What'd I miss?" He asked"Nothing" I stuttered on a single word"Are you drunk?" He studied my fluctuating gaze.
Chapter 5AvaWhy is it so easy for a man to cheat in a marriage and so hard for a woman to? This thought had been lingering on my mind since the day I confirmed Grey was having extramarital affairs while I continued to be faithful. Sometimes I wished I didn't have a heart, no conscience whatsoever and most of all no love for Grey but that was so impossible. Truth is my love for this man was at first sight, the first night, the genesis of this whole unpleasant situation. If anyone ever told you getting married to a man gets him, it's a lie because you can never get a man whose heart doesn't beat for you, crave you or needs you. I really wonder how marriage of convenience strive.I arrived home a little after ten and of course, wasn't surprised to meet Grey's absence. It's Saturday and that's no excuse for a man who doesn't love his wife one bit. I bet he would rather spend time with wild animals in the jungle
Chapter 6Years backAva"You're so handsome," I said, shamelessly. On a normal day, I would never ever give compliments to a total stranger but I just couldn't help the way I was feeling."Grey Storm" He replied. It was hard to tell whether he is happy or not."May I sit?" I asked but he didn't give me a response.I could feel the stripper in front of him shooting daggers at me. LMAO, if only she knew I was 101 percent not bothered."If you're looking for who to shag tonight, I'm available" I realized the height of what I'd just said seconds later but it was too late to salvage the statement.I finally got a proper view of his eyes when he looked at me."How many men have you said that to tonight, Ava?" He asked and just the sound of his voice made me speechlessly wet. I am going to masturb
