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
Alex's POV; It's been weeks and we've heard nothing of, or from Ava. I don't even know what to believe. Is she truly carrying my husband's child? I mean... I can't zero out that possibility. Even if she is with his child, what then? Am I expected to leave my husband for another woman? It's not my fault she dug a hole and fell into it... But it's not the child's fault that its mother is a whore. Is there even a child? I'm so confused. I don't know what to, and what not to do. I pick up my phone and decide that I need to talk to Damon. I miss him. He's reclined ever since Ava showed up. Guilt had been bugging him before, but after she came to us with such news, Damon became a shell of his former self. He... let guilt consume him fully. I am forced to sit up when I find a message from Damon. It's not the fact that he messaged me that's frightened me, but the content of the message
Ava's POV; "Do you love Alex? "I question, with my back turned to Damon, and tears pouring down my face. I slowly pull out the bottle I've been hiding in my shirt and turn to him with speed. I spray its content on his face, and he grunts in pain as it gets into this eyes. He staggers and I lead him to the couch as his eyes begin to flutter. "What did you do to me, Ava? "He questions in worry as he rubs his eyes, and I stare down at him in pain. "If I won't have you, Damon... No one else will. If you didn't want me, you never should have given me a taste of you. "I say to him as I watch him weakly surrender to the sleep beckoning on him, and another tear slips down my face. "I'm sorry, Damon... But this love story is mine, and this is how it will end. You had the chance to make it end in another beautiful way... But you chose this... "I cry as I grab a whiskey bottle off the table, and begin emptying it on the couch he's dozing off on.<
Sia's POV;“A drink for you. “Amos says. Pointing a can of soda, at me, and I smile as I take it from him.We've been taking things slow, trying to get to know each other better, and… It's been fun.It's nice to have the person you love finally give you some attention. But to be honest, I'm not completely happy. I feel whatever he's doing, he's doing out of pity.Either that, or he's using me as a rebound. It makes no sense to me. Yes, the care and attention he's showing sure is something I've longed for, for a very long time, and it's been my dream for way too long.But it only began after my outburst to him. I can still remember all the emotions that were running through me that day in his car when I blurted out my deepest secret to him. The truth about my feelings for him.I should be happy and feel over the rainbow that the man I love now spends quality time with me and is always there when I need him. Right? But no. I don't feel… Comfortable. It just feels awkward.“Anything the
Audrey's POV;I suddenly jolt out of my sleep, when a sound wakes me. It sounded like a door opening. I've not been able to sleep deeply tonight. Moses came over here to spend the night, as he has an interview at an office not too far from my house, tomorrow morning, and his house is quite far. If he spends the night in his house, he'd be late for the interview, and might even lose the job. So, he asked for my help, and I gave it. He agreed to sleep in the living room as there are only two rooms in this house. One for me, and the other for Angela, and there's no way I'd sleep in the same room as him. At least not now. I don't trust him enough, and as much as I want to, I haven't fully accepted him back. I need to know what he's truly here for. He says he wants to make up for his mistakes, but I'm only human. You can't expect me to trust him after all these years. There are so many different possibilities for his reappearance. Possibilities that send shivers down my spine and a s
Lucia's POV;I'm on my way to the hospital with Alex. I don't know why, but she insisted on coming to see Ava. It's annoying because I really think she shouldn't care if the witch is fine or not. If you ask me, I'd say I don't mind if she died in that hospital. She tried to kill my son-in-law. It's only fair for me to wish she died in that fire, but she didn't!And heaven knows why Alex is going to see her today. The doctor told us that Ava and Damon were fine, however, Damon got discharged, while Ava hasn't. The cops are patiently waiting for her to recover so they can send her for a mental check-up, or just lock her up for attempted murder.Either is fine by me. Be it locking her in an asylum, or behind bars. We finally arrive at the hospital, and I walk behind Alex in growing annoyance.We eventually make it to Ava's room, and there's a petite, dark-haired girl, sitting beside her bed. However, she rises in fear, on seeing us.It seems she knows who Alex is. Ava turns to Alex,
Ava's POV;I am in the hospital with Mia. A few seconds ago, Alex and an older woman who looks a lot like her, left the room.And my eyes are shut as my mind is running over Alex's words."Wow... She really is a different type of woman. "Mia states as I feel her sit beside me, and I open my eyes."Yeah... "I reply dryly."If it were me or any other woman in her shoes, I'd be wishing the worst for you. Not coming to apologize... "She states, and I shut my eyes again."What are we going to do now? "She questions and I keep my eyes shut. I don't know what we'd do now. I've lost my job, and my reputation. I don't think any other big shot in town would want to hire me after news about my truth somehow slipped onto social media. I still have some money saved up from my fat salaries, but I'm confused. I don't know what step to take next..."I don't know. "I reply to my best friend, honestly, and silence falls upon us for a second."I warned you, you know? But you seemed so certain that you
