It's Saturday today, and I'm happy. This is one of those lucky days I get to spend with my Angela.
We've finished our chores, breakfast, all there is to do, and now it's playtime.
"I'm gonna get you! "Angela yells from the other side of the couch, and I let out a dramatic laugh.
"You never will, Captain Angela! I'm the greatest villain there is. Argh!! " I reply. Making sure to draw out the pirate sound at the end.
" Oh, yes I will! "She yells back, and just then she dashes towards me, causing us to run a few times around the couch like before.
"Give me back my gem you big, bully, pirate Argh! "Angela screams. Referring to me as ' Pirate Argh! 'is the villain name we gave me for whenever we're playing this game.
" Make me! "I call back, just before letting out another exaggerated laughter.
" Oh, no! Look, a shark! "Angela shrieks while pointing at the ground not too far from my feet, and I scream and jump
Damon's POV; I take a deep breath while staring at the door before me. I exhale again as my pulses are running. I dab at the beads of sweat that have formed on my head and build the courage to ring the doorbell. I shut my eyes and wait a few seconds, and a familiar voice calls, "Who is it? " I know it will be rude not to answer, so I do. "It's... It's me... "I reply nervously and rub my palms on my pants. After a few seconds, the door is opened, and my mother-in-law, Alex's mother, comes into view. She stares at me, and I swallow before giving a crooked smile. "G... Good morning, ma'am... "I greet nervously, and she nods. " Morning... "She replies, and I blink nervously. " May... May I come in? "I question, and she stares at me for a few more seconds before exhaling and stepping aside for me. I smile at her and rush in. She shuts the door behind me and moves to my front. "What do you want? "She questions and I confirm my suspicions. From the tone of her voice to me, and her
Ava's POV;I take a deep breath in annoyance as I can't move my body. Everywhere aches. I wonder who the mad bi*ch who attacked me was.My whole face hurts, and I don't think I'd have the guts to look into a mirror anytime soon. I hope she rots in jail.My eyes dart at the door as soon as I hear it open, and they widen in joy when Mr. Damon walks in.I try to smile, but quickly stop myself as my face hurts too bad to try that, and also because I remember that my face isn't looking its best."Hey, "He greets, and I give a small smile while trying my possible best to look pitiable and cute."Hey, "I reply with a hoarse voice, and he steps closer to the bed."I'm so sorry for what happened, Ava. I... I didn't know that you were being attached in my absence. I... "He begins, but I cut him off."Hey, it's not your fault. At least, you saved me. That shows how important I am to you. "I say deliberately pointing out the facts, and he
Sia's POV; It's been weeks since I last spoke to Amos, and our dear Phoebe has finally decided the date to get married. Today. Everything had been planned and set, but she for some reason felt it would be selfish to celebrate a wedding party with all the things going on with her friends. There's no denying the fact that we have had rough times recently. Amanda with her pregnancy, the issues between Alex and Damon, and mine and Audrey's low-key struggles. Phoebe decided it's high time to get married, and I'm happy for her. She's lucky her fiance is a good guy. Not many men will be willing to wait that long or will be faithful during such delay. I stare at myself in the mirror, and my little twinkle purrs at my reflection. "You like it? "I question my sweet kitten who comes up to my leg and starts rubbing herself on it. Causing me to smile. I run my palms on my curves while admiring the silver dress. Alex made it for me. She said
Audrey's POV;I'm currently at Phoebe's wedding party, and it's glamorous. I'm in the flowing, silver, and black dress that Alex made me. It's simple but still awesome. One should never expect less from Alex.This wedding party is beautiful. The decorations, planning, everything. I smile as I remember how I wanted my wedding celebration to be. I had given up and forgotten all about it.That was like... Five years ago. Moses is standing beside me, and we're finding it though to vibe or dialogue like the other couples.Amanda is at a corner eating, Alex and Damon are conversing cheerfully a little distance away, same as Sia and her date, and here I am. I can't even look Moses in the eye.Yes, I still love him. I've always loved him. I never forgot about him, I never stopped loving him. But having him back now just feels absurd.Should I open up to him? Can I trust him? After five years, he just shows up again, saying he wants to fix everything
Audrey's POV; "Audrey, wait! Stop!" I hear Moses scream, and I come to a halt when I'm far away from the wedding hall. I listen to him run up to me, and he stands before me. "What do you want, Moses!? Why are you here? Why are you back!? What's the real reason for your return!? " I question without giving him a chance to talk. "Why are you asking me all this, Audrey? I came for you. For us, and our baby. "He says, and I interrupt. "Our baby!? What baby are you talking about!? The same one you abandoned with me for over five years!? The same one Whose naming ceremony you didn't attend!? The same one who you never knew how was fending? The same one who has lacked your love for all this while and I had to go the extra mile in a bid to make her not feel it! Is that the baby you're talking about!? "I scream, and his face falls. "You still haven't forgiven me? " He questions, and a cord snaps inside me. "Forgiven you!
Amanda's POV;I am swaying gently to the music playing in the hall while watching couples dance lovingly to the slow music on the dance floor.I put another shrimp in my mouth, and chew gently with my eyes closed. I've been craving shrimps for quite a while now and finally been able to eat it feels like heaven on earth.I open my eyes when I hear someone clear their throat, and my gaze lands on a good-looking man standing before me.His brown hair has been gelled back and his emerald green eyes are sparkling with energy and life."Came alone? "He questions and I smile."Not exactly. "I reply honestly and he raises a brow."Then... Where's your date? "He questions. Looking around for my date, and I smile.I point down at my round tummy with both of my index fingers and reply to him."I actually came with two dates. "I say, and his lips form an 'o' shape."Oh, I'm so sorry. "He replies apologetically, and I laugh it
Damon's POV;"You!? "Alex calls in disbelief, and my heart falls on seeing Ava again.Guilt eats me up each time I think about or see her. I can't help but feel like I cheated or used her.I got close to her when I knew full well, that I didn't love her. She innocently let me touch her because she loved me, and she didn't know that I... I didn't love her back.I look away when her gaze locks with mine, and Alex tightens her grip on my hand."What are you doing here!? "Alex questions in anger,and a smirk crawls onto Ava's face."What's going on? "My mom questions on stepping out of the kitchen,but she pauses on seeing Ava. She's never liked her and with all that's happened lately,she only dislikes her more."Oh, don't worry. Good tidings I bring for you and your husband. "Ava says dryly, before walking up to, and standing in front of me.She has a plaster above her right eyebrow, and marks of healin
Alex's POV;I'm sitting on my bed, shaken, broken, and crying. Could Ava really be pregnant with Damon's child!?Could that witch really be carrying my husband's child??"Alex, honey, may I come in? "I hear my mother-in-law's voice call from outside, and I wipe my face and sniffle, but remain silent."Please, honey. I know the door is unlocked, but I won't come in if you don't permit me.Dear, do let me in..." She begs, and I roll my eyes to fight the tears threatening to pour again, and I inhale deeply."Come in, mom. " I call out to her, and I hear the door unlock. I hug my legs tightly, as I feel her sit on the bed."Alex, honey... Don't cry... "She says to me, and I look up at her in alarm."How am I to do that, mom? My rival is carrying my husband's child. This is as bad as it gets!Ava has a part of my husband, growi
