I wasn't hearing the honking car anymore. Was this death? Was I in heaven? But woah, I was still hearing the barking guys.
I pressed my hands against my ears, not wanting to hear anything. I just kept weeping. I just wanted everything to be silent.
"Are you fine?" That voice was familiar. I knew that person.
Slowly I raised my neck to spot whoever had asked me that. And, this instant, I knew a miracle existed. This was a miracle. A big one.
"Roy!" I jumped from the ground, cuddled him tightly. He dropped a kiss on my forehead, soothed my hair, sighed.
"Are you okay?" He asked.
"I'm so scared." I wept on his chest. "I thought they would kill me."
"Don't worry." He cupped my jaw, looking so worried. "They won't hurt you any longer. I'm here to help you out."
This bed was comfy, comfy enough for me to have a great sleep. I rolled on it, pulled the blanket over my naked chest, yawned as well. Wait, why was my chest naked?"Oh my gosh!" I sat up straight, gasped. I was on Roy's bed. Naked on his bed.Ah, quite embarrassing.I pulled the blanket up, to cover my chest, ran my fingers through my rough hair. Where was Roy? He wasn't on the bed. Did he go somewhere?Glancing up at the wall clock, I grumbled on seeing it was nine in the morning. First, mom would be so worried. Second, my roomies would be worried. Also, I wasn't supposed to sleep till nine!Heaving a sigh, my eyes caught the shirt I had worn last night. And, that brought a clear memory of how Roy had slipped off the shirt from my body, how he had almost ripped off my underwear, how he had adored my body. He had made my first time so memorable. I was gla
I moved my lips, but said nothing. I was so shocked. How had it happened? How had she gotten to meet a boy? This sounded too crazy to be true."Bella, how did it happen?" I managed to ask.She stopped wailing, put her eyes down, sobbed. "A few weeks ago, I went to the club. I wanted to speak with you, but you weren't there. Your boss said you weren't working that night. And then, I-I saw Jason there.""Jason?" I dropped my mouth. So she slept with that idiot? Really?"Yeah." She rubbed off the tears on her cheek. "He offered to have a drink with me, and I accepted. I didn't want to, but I thought it would be a good way to get rid of the stress I felt.""Oh goodness." Barb slapped her hands against her forehead, probably knowing where Bella was leading her story to.Bella sniffed. "We both got drunk. He drove us to the hotel, and then, we&hel
The elevator stopped when it reached the floor of Roy's Condo. Stepping out, I headed to the condo. Smiling, I took a glance at the cookie I had made for him. And, raising my neck, that was when I had to bump into someone. I would admit, I was quite clumsy.Ah. Shit. No. Not now. This moron, Kathleen. What the heck was she doing here?She scoffed. "Damn, you again? Whenever I see you, I always feel like starting my day over.""Stupid," I muttered, scoffed as well. "Woman, you think highly of yourself. Funnily enough, you've got a really low standard. A person who can stoop so low as stealing a babe's guy, has no class at all.""Blah blah." She flapped her hand in the air, rounded her eyes like the idiot she was, sneered as well. "Poor you. I'm so sorry for you. Like I'll say, that dude's mine. And it's so sad you're not willing to back off."I sighed in frustration. "
I watched as Virg packed her stuff, tears in my eyes. Her mom was here to take her home. And, I didn't know when next I would see her. She said she wasn't sure she would survive the cancer, and thinking about that, I was even more fearful. I just couldn't think of losing her."When will the dorms be shut?" She asked, snapped her neck in my direction, smiled at me."Um…" I smiled to ensure she didn't notice the tears in my eyes. "Tomorrow, I think.""That means y'all will be leaving today, right?" She zipped her big box, starting to arrange her bed."Yeah. Barb left yesterday," I informed her."Honey." Mrs. Julio, Virg's mom, ambled into the room.This woman was definitely the youngest mom I had ever seen. Tall, slim, her dark skin so fresh, curvy figure, and her partial grey hair always neatly styled.
"Pancake or?" I gave Mom a questioning look, waiting patiently for her to answer my question.She sighed. "Pizza. Just order a pizza.""Good." I grinned at her, rushing to get my phone from the living room. I was particularly happy because I wouldn't have to cook any longer.I logged in to the website of the store I loved to order food from, and ordered a pizza immediately. Done with that, I sauntered back to the kitchen.Stepping in, I sighted mom first. She was glued to her phone, and for some reason, sweat seeped on her forehead. Her eyes were widely open, and she swallowed. She looked tense."Mom?" Hearing my voice, she flinched.She blinked about two hundred times in one second, inhaled hard. "Oh, dear. Have you ordered the pizza?"I nodded, pulling a concerned look. "Mom, what's going on? Why do you see
The cool breeze staggered through us, teased my hair, causing goosebumps to rise on the exposed part of my skin. I smiled as I stared up at the sky, so happy. Particularly happy because Roy was with me. He had his arms around my waist from behind, no inch left between us."When will you return?" I asked him, my voice soft.He pecked my ear. "In a week. You'll miss me?""Hmm, maybe."He sighed. "Renee, I'm so glad we're finally going to be happy.""Me too." I sighed."I can't wait for you to graduate. We'll be able to leave here, and start a life together," he said.That melted my heart. So he also wanted to start a life with me? So nice."Yeah."Dropping another kiss on my ear, he stepped backwards, held my arms, and twirled me around to face him. He looked stre
Hey guys, I want to appreciate everyone who reads this book. It means a lot to me. Sooooo, I know some of you might not be happy with the end, but I want you to know it's just a story. And wait, remain calm! There's going to be book two. This is more like a prequel, an introduction to their love story. Book two is titled: Chasing her. It'll be out soon. Yes. Soon. You don't wanna miss book two, do you? 🤔 How do you think it'll go when Renee finds out about this? This would be a second heartbreak, right? Or wait, how'll she find out? Roy's a great pretender, you know? And yeah, if Roy could betray her, don't you think there could be more craziness in this story? That's enough of a spoiler, right? Thanks to God for making this book complete, and thanks to everyone who read and supported t
