I take a walk in the isolated passageway with my hands in my trouser pockets and still in Desmond's shirt. I stop at a window and stare at the moon. I recall when Jason made me believe my name was carved on the moon while I was younger.
He said the moon was our little communication portal and no matter where I was if I stared at the moon and Remember him, then it means he's doing the same. So if I ever got lost, I should look up at the moon and know we'd always find our way back to each other.
A bitter chuckle escapes my lips as I recall my sweet home. I bite my upper lip as I ponder on what my life has slowly played into. Desmond invades my thoughts and my sadness heightens.
After what Harry did to me, how on earth could I afford to fall for someone else!? Desmond is too calm, observant, wonderful, and just too perfect to fall for someone like me.
How on earth c
"Sonia! "She screams."Fine! Fine, I'd tell him! "I scream in surrender. ~yeah right, like she'd know if I don't."Sweetheart. I'm not a learner in this field. I'd know if you don't tell him and baby, I won't tell you know when I'm gonna tell him myself. "She says and my jaw drops."I give you till the end of today. "She says before walking off and leaving me on the bench. I look up and find Desmond sitting afar with his head rolled back and eyes closed.~oh, Desmond, you'd reject me if I tell you and I'd die of embarrassment if Gabby tells. That girl is crazy enough to tell you how stupid I act because of you!He suddenly brings his head down and opens his eyes. He catches me staring at him and I remain frozen for a few seconds before I quickly look away. I stand up and walk off with embarrassment chewing my cheeks.It's night and I a
"I'm in love with you Desmond" she mutters and my heart bursts. Excitement, joy, and a ton of other emotions flush through me. "C. Come again? "I question as I'm not sure I heard right. "I'm... I'm... I'm in love with you Desmond. "She repeats and I pull her into a hug. These are words I've been dying to hear but all the same, never knew I'd been. Then it hits me. ×what are you doing Desmond!? If you give into this, you could be the reason Deborah would have to lose her life! I quickly pull away from her. "I'm... I'm sorry but. I don't think we should do this. We. We can't be more than mates. " I reply as I stare into her face and instantly the light of hope in her eyes vanish. Her jaw drops and she stares at me like I just stabbed her in the stomach. "Deborah... "I make to speak as I try to grab h
Gabby loses the strength and anger she felt earlier on her way here and her intention to scream some sense into Desmond vanishes into thin air. Seeing him in this state of pain and helplessness makes her wish she could help him or at least attend to his busted knuckles but she knows better than to approach Desmond when he's like this. Else his knuckles won't be the only things out of place but her jaw would join the limbo line too. This sight makes her know Desmond sure has feelings for Sonia but if she knows Sonia as well as she thinks she does, she also knows what Desmond did today would make Sonia see him in a different light. What he did would push Sonia as far away as possible for him. She has to do something if not the dear ship she's been pushing would sink to rock bottom. °°° Gabby walks into the female hall after changing her drenched clothes and finds Tori
Sonias POV;... I hold my hand over my throbbing cheek. With tears in my eyes, I stare up at the monster before me. "How dare you test me!? "She screams grabbing my hair so tight I feel my scalp scream. She holds tighter and I scream in pain. "Your lover boy won't come out now!? "She screams. ~, wait! Loverboy?? "You dared break my rule. You kissed someone! "Madre screams and I feel life escape my face. A few gasps are heard from the crowd. "Tell me who it was! "She orders screaming in my face as she pulls my hair but I just sit there and whimper in pain. "Talk! "She orders holding her long talon nails over me. "Madre! "I hear someone scream in anger. ~Desmond, no! Shut up! Madre lets go of my hair and stares at Desmond in amusement as he marches towards t
"What are you doing!? I can well take the fall for I and Sonia's case I don't need any more blood on my hands! "Desmond shoots at Tori as soon as we're alone in the room. "Shut it, dude. None of this is for you." She retorts at Desmond. "Look... Look, Tori. I... I caused all this, you don't have to take the blame... I.. I'd pay for my crimes... I caused it... You're... You're innocent... You don't... "I begin to cry as I grab Tori's hands. Tori chuckles. ~how could she laugh at a time like this!? "Look Lolipop, if Madre decides to punish you tonight, you know that means death. Look, I have nothing to lose. I don't know if my gram is still alive. If she isn't, I'd meet her on the other side and if she is, I'd wait for her. Babe, the team needs you both. If anything happens to you both, this whole project would flop.
I get into the female hall and I sit on my bed with my knees to my chest. What just happened?Gabby sits the same way and can't sleep either and Rachel is nowhere to be found. Memories of when I first met Tori replay in my head. Times she's been rude and sassy to me.You know, I thought I hated Tori, but she's always had this thing no one had. The ability to be herself and unchanging despite all the changes around her.She's always been strong, elegant, brave, cool, suave, and many dope things. I never knew someone could and would die for me. I never understood Tori till she finally pulled the veil over her life for me.No! Tori won't die in vain. I get up and make my way out of the mansion and I sight where Tori was burnt. I pause staring at it as pictures of when she was tied to the tree begin to compare themselves to the image of ash which before me now lay.&n
I wake up to the dull bickering of other girls. I find Gabby in a meditation position on her bed. I look over at Tori's bed and find it empty.I stare at it for a while and Tori's words come back to me;"You'd find my journal in my bed. Give it to grams if you ever find her and if you don't, you know what to do with it. Also, you can keep the watch as a souvenir. "I walk over to her bed and raise the covers only to find a cut in the mattress. I put my hand into it and feel around for a little while before my fingers come in contact with something.I drag it out and find a beautiful royal blue book that has a professional hand-sketched skull on its cover. I open the book and find the name 'Tori Norman' drawn boldly like something writing with dripping liquid. ~she was an amazing artist.I am about to walk to my bed when something catches both the light and my eyes. I dip my h
IF YOU HAVE ISSUES WITH GORY SCENES, I'D ADVISE YOU DON'T READ PAST THE '∆∆∆' SIGNS🙏Thank You.*#*#*#*#We all watch in horror as Brayan slowly strides into the room. He walks over to me and wraps his cold fingers around my wrist. He pulls me and I stand in fear. Is he going to tell madre?"What are you doing here? "Desmond shoots at Brayan as Brayan makes to pull me out of the room.Brayan ignores him and I obediently keep following his pull."Where the f*ck do you think you're taking her!? "Desmond shoots as he grabs my other arm and I stand between them both stupidly like a rope meant for a tug of war game.Brayan stares at Desmond intensely and suddenly Desmond begins to battle to breathe. Although Desmond is coughing furiously, he doesn't let go of my arm as he falls to the ground. Gabby and Ekene rush to him.
