Because I was so curious about who the hell is Nicolas Forbes, I went to their town and to find out that there’s no such person as him. What I met a ghost? A ghost saved me from dying? This is just ridiculous! I mean how is it possible that no Nicolas Forbes lives there? And what’s the purpose of lying? It’s not like I’m going to stalk him now and then.
I was so disappointed. I was hoping that I could meet him here. And yeah, I even dressed up. Well, it’s all normal, dressing upright? Geez, there’s no use.
I decided to stop by an ice cream store but I remembered Nicolas again so I decided to go with him. But ice cream is tempting so I decided to eat.
I was licking the ice cream, savoring its tastiness. Damn, I picked the right flavor. I stopped what I’m doing when I heard someone beside me talked. “Hey, I heard you’re looking for Nico?” I raise my brows at him. And who the hell is this creature? He may have read my expression because he introduced himself. “I’m John, Nicolas's friend.”
“Yeah, there’s no man named Nicolas here, that’s what I heard,” I told him sarcastically. He laughed. “Maybe because you asked the wrong people.”
“Nic is not the type of person who goes out and has fun so no one knows him. Why do you ask for him by the way?” he added.
“Oh. He left his wallet in my clinic, which I found weird because I didn’t saw him visit last night.” I told him awkwardly. “Oh.” He was confused, I guess. I mean who wouldn’t be right? “Where is he now?” I asked him. “As for the moment he’s not available but I’ll tell him to visit you tonight.” My forehead knitted. Why does it have to be tonight? I nodded at him.
“Well then, I should go. Nice to meet you, John, I’m Amelia by the way.” I left the café and entered my car.
My efforts are not paid and I am so frustrated! But it’s my fault, I went there without even telling Nics I’ll go there. I didn’t even know that man that much and yet I visit him in his place. Wow, Nics? Since when did we become friends? Well, he saved my life, he told me something about his life so we’re already friends.
I decided to spend my whole time in the clinic. I don’t want to be in the house because Agnes and her friends hang out there all the freaking time. Lucky for them, they have their husband to give them what they want. As for me having no boyfriend at all, I need to work so I can buy myself a gift. Perhaps one pair of Prada shoes is okay.
It’s already five in the afternoon when I received a call from my dad. I find it weird because dad never calls me. If he needs something from me, his secretary Janice will be the one to contact me. And seeing his number flashing on the screen means something very important is up.
“Hello?”[“Amelia, I have news and you’re not going to like it.”] My heart is already beating so fast to what he said.“Just spill it, no need for the suspense.” It took seconds before he answered. [“Your grandmother Nina, she died yesterday.”]“What?!” it’s as if my whole world crumbles as of the moment. [“I’m sorry, I just found out.”] and he ended the call. That’s it he’s not going to comfort me for my loss? Dad never fails to disappoint me.
I know my grandmother is already old. But why so soon? I’m not yet prepared. I haven’t visited them for a while now. The last time I did was three years ago. They lived in the Philippines so it’s really hard.
I called my cousins in the Philippines so I’ll be updated. The burial will be three from now. I can’t make it. I whispered prayers to the air, may you rest in peace Lola Nina.
With a heavy heart, I decided to go home. Because my car is in the auto repair shop I don’t have a choice but to walk. Well, walking can help me burn down my calories.
As I’m passing in the ‘Blue Street’ I felt the cold wind touched my skin. I closed my eyes to feel it. But… I felt something hot in my nape. I opened my eyes and roamed around the area. There’s no one here. I’m alone. Maybe it’s a ghost since this street is haunted. If ghosts exist. Or maybe it’s just my imagination since I was imagining things these past few days.
As I was walking I can feel a strong wind touch my cheek. It’s not just a wind I guess? Because I feel like someone just passed in front of me. But because it’s too fast I rarely see it.“Animal huh?” I asked ‘it’ whoever is missing with me. It’s just that I’ve got a feeling that it’s ‘it’. A moment later it already showed in front of me. It’s a man!“W-what you’re n-not an a-animal.” I stuttered.He laughs like a devil and then his eyes became red. Why does that scene so fucking familiar? Instead of running, I stared at him and feel the weight of his deadly stares. “You’re not animal, but observing the girl’s that you’ve killed you’re worst than an animal.” I spat angrily at him but he just stared at me smirking. I tell you, this creature whatever he is, he is so creepy.He advances towards me I stepped back. “You have a lot
A very hard slap welcomed me the moment I set foot on our house. It’s as if dad was so ready to do it. I remained my stoic face while my father is slapping me like crazy. “You insolent brat! How dare you defy my orders!”“What the fuck? I’m old enough to handle myself!” I fired back at him and then he looked angry than before. He was about to pull my hair when Agnes interfere. “Joseph stop it! You&r
Chapter 8: LeftIf zombies exist then I’m probably one of them. Blank mind and walking like a crazy dude, that’s me right now. I’m now here somewhere in our city walking, not minding the people around me. It’s not because I don’t give a damn about them, it’s because my brain can’t handle some shits anymore.I didn’t know that my life could be this hard, this chaotic. My mom used to tell me about fairy tales how it seems to be easy because we aren’t them. And now that I’m on their shoes, I can really say that life is so hard, hard than finding a boyfriend.“Hey! Watch where you’re going!” an angry man shouted and pushed me to the ground. I guessed I bumped into him. I don’t know. I couldn’t care less. I stand up and apologized to the man. “I’m sorry.” I said with no emotion and continued walking.The truth is I don’t know where I’m

I woke up when I felt the sunrays are hitting on my skin. That’s odd this house isn’t allowed to welcome the sun. That’s what Greta told me. She’s the creepy old woman who happens to be the caretaker.I didn’t bother to take a bath and already went downstairs because I can already smell the aroma of the coffee and to what is being cooked.I was surprised to see Nics in the kitchen… cooking. “Wow. You know how to cook.” The shocked expression was evident on my face. His brows knitted to my remarks.“Why, you do don’t know how to cook?” I coughed and smiled awkwardly when he asked me. “Let’s eat?” I said trying to avoid the topic.It’s just me and cooking, we don’t bond so well. We had past. I almost burned our house when I was in high school because I tried to cook something I saw online. I didn’t know that that will happen. I just left to change my clothes and w
It’s already dark outside when I finish the movie. Yes, I’m watching again. There’s nothing I could do in this house it’s too big and it’s too boring. This house is lifeless.I wish Shan’s here with me so I can talk to someone other than Nicolas. It’s just I feel like we’re so different. Like he’s too far away and I can’t reach him.I saw him using his vamp speed again. Hope everyone has that kind of ability.“You coming?”“Where are we going?” I lazily asked. I don’t feel like moving my ass right now.Because if I did, I might go home and I don’t want that. I don’t want to face my dad’s wrath, not now. I’m just so sick with my family. It’s so fucking toxic.“Hey I said to the downtown. Are you even listening?” oh right. I spaced out. Afraid to be left alone in the house I nodded and change my clothes.I’m just t
Chapter 12: DoubtsNicolas’ POVI’ve got no choice but to be here in this freaking amusement park. Amelia really nailed it on dragging me here. I’m supposed to decline her but I just can’t because I can feel her sadness, her longing for someone – her mother. Her mother that I loathe and the witch who cursed our family and killed my parents.I’m not supposed to be with her, because it’s a sin for us. But I need her, we needed her for us to be normal again. She’s a descendant of the witch that cursed us and she is the only one that can reverse the curse. I just have to lure her into my trap and then I can be free.“Let’s go?”I was shocked when she said. “That’s it?”“Yeah, there’s no point on being here mom’s gone already.”Pain crossed her eyes and in that moment I pity her. I realized that we’re the same we don’t have parents any
Chapter 13: BrothersGreta didn’t push me to believe the rubbish she’s been telling me. She just smirked at me and left the room. My goodness that old woman is really a creep.Every time she’s near I shiver. But I shouldn’t think about her. Because Nicolas here, have a brother and he didn’t tell me. His brother is as handsome as he is.I went downstairs because I feel fine. I can hear the two talking. Greta’s not around maybe she went home. I walk towards the kitchen because I guess they’re there. But I was shocked to see them fighting!Lance started to throw Nic while Nic is trying to choke Lance.“What the hell is going on?!”My shriek caught their attention. They just wipe off the blood on their mouth and they laugh together. Okay, what was that?“Sorry, we weren’t able to see each other for years so that’s a way of greeting each other.”Nic explained when he noti
