I stare down at Amos in horror. I stoop down beside him and my hands travel about his battered face in confusion as I don't know what to do.
"Oh, my God, Amos. I'm so sorry. I don't know what came over him. I'm... I'm so sorry. " I beg as tears form in my eyes. Damon was never a beast when I was married to him or when we were dating. The side of Damon I saw today, is one I've never seen, and hope to never see again.
"What happened here? " A guard questions as they rush to the scene. Tears slide down my face as they help Amos who's now weak, to stand.
I battle to hold back tears as one of the guards calls for an ambulance.
I'm fuming with anger and annoyance as I get into my vehicle. I was brought here to relax, but now my temper is far into space.
Why on earth would Alex be with another man!? What does he have that I don't!?
Alex's POV; "Oh, wow. I'm still alive. " Amos groans as he shifts in the hospital bed, and my heart jumps in glee as I feared it will take a lot of time for him to come around. Even though the doctors told me he's alright. The bandage wrapped around his face to hold his jaw in place says otherwise. "Oh, thank goodness! " I breathe out as I draw closer to his bed. "Amos, I'm so sorry my husband acted out like that. We're about to get divorced and, I honestly didn't see this coming. I... I didn't know he'd be there, and I... I swear I didn't know this will happen. I'm so sorry he... "I begin to beg in embarrassment as tears begin to form afresh in my eyes as I take his hands which are on his stomach. "Hey, hey, hey. It's okay. You don't have to apologize. I mean, any man would go bunkers if he sees his extremely beautiful wife with another man. I fully understand, and... And, you don't have to explain anything. "He replies weakly
Alex's POV; I wake up to Amos's grunt. I slept sitting beside his hospital bed. He smiles at me, and I smile back. We're both just waking up. Sia walks into the room. with a cross shoulder bag, and I smile at her. Late last night, I told her about what happened and I didn't expect to see her this morning. At least not this early. "Sup, babe. "I greet with a raspy voice on seeing her, and she smiles. "Sup. "She replies. "Hey, hot stuff. "She greets Amos who's lazily staring at her, and Amos chuckles. "Just to be clear, I don't think you're hot. I'm just being polite cause of your current... situation. "She says, and I can't help but laugh. "I brought food for the both of you though. Had to sign a lot of paperwork to get it in. "She says taking a sit the sofa in the room, and my jaw drops. "Sia... "I call in disbelief. "You won't even find out if it's a sandwich before you get all teary-eyed? "She questions, and I
Damon's POV; I woke up this morning with a heavy heart. I fully remember last night. I wasn't drunk when I got intimate with my assistant, but she let me. what's more, when I woke up, she wasn't beside me. She had gone. Is she mad at me? or is she okay with what happened? I don't know. Why didn't she stop me? Why did I touch her even? Damon, you've messed things up! What if she resigns? Does she now see me as an abusive boss who takes advantage of his female workers?? It was a weak moment for me. I don't know if I should be glad or scared that she wasn't here when I woke up. I pick up my phone and place a call through to her, but she doesn't pick. Ava never misses my calls. I call about three more times but each call goes unanswered. I roll my head back in worry, and memories of last night slowly begin to slip before my vision. I f
Alex's POV; Amos is getting discharged tomorrow, and right now, I'm in my house. I came to get some work done, and hopefully, get proper sleep on my bed. Spending a week on the couch in Amos's hospital room isn't doing my back any good. But the funny thing is, all the girls are here. Apparently, Amanda, Phoebe, and Audrey were in the neighborhood, and Sia just happened to be with me, so they came over to join us. Right now, I'm eating in my dining and the girls are in the living room with Sia. Phoebe has a problem, and she's really pissed about it. "I just can't believe it! " She screams out of the blue, causing me to jump a bit in fright. "Oh, you better believe it girl. No man is faithful. You're even lucky you caught him before the wedding. My advice, call it off. Don't tie yourself to any man. They all don't know how to keep their c**ks to thems
Alex's POV; Amos got discharged today, and I'm happy to help. He got a nurse though, but I have decided to stay at his place to help him fully recover. I still feel bad about the fact that Damon put him in his current condition, and that too, because of me. I can't leave him like this. I fear that his condition is worse than he makes it appear. He didn't let me know what the doctor said had happened to him, and there's no way on earth the doctor will tell me what his patient has asked him to conceal. The fact that he still has a bandage around his face, and still can't make some oral movement without grunting in pain, also makes me scared. He constantly feels head pain, is still limping, and a few more little but worry some issues. "I don't see why you have to be here, Alex. "He says as I help him into his bedroom. "There's already a nurse here. "He
Ava's POV; I'm walking elegantly behind Damon with my clipboard strapped tightly to my chest. A lot of days have passed since that one special night I shared with Damon in his bed, and the way he treats me now has changed drastically. He can't look straight up at me anymore, and he gets nervous around me. I've taken this opportunity, and have kissed him several times after that wonderful night and also done some other intimate things he neither turns down nor regrets. He never asks for them, but he never turns them down, either. And that's good enough for me. it means he's indecisive of what he wants, and for him to be indecisive about me, it means I stand a chance against his puny soon-to-be ex-wife, Alex. Oh, I can't wait for the day he'd sign the divorce papers! I crave another time like that night. To see Damon look at me with desire, and call my name in desperation, begging for my attention. "Morning ma'am, "A red-haired lady greets me, a
Alex's POV; I've been very busy the last few days, and my work as a designer has only been bringing more to my plate. Right now, I'm on my way to a deport spot, to get the fabrics that were delivered for me. I never thought much of getting an assistant to help me with my work, as I was not yet that big in the fashion industry, and I wasn't doing enough to need a P.A However, after joining Amos's fashion house, things have taken a sharp turn in the opposite direction. I'm either running from one official meeting to the other, picking up my personal fabrics and materials, getting my designs done, helping the company with its new fashion line, hanging out with the girls, taking care of Amos, and dealing with my divorce issue. To be honest, it does bother me that Damon hasn't called, or bumped into me in the past few days. What if he's moved on? What if Ava is doing much more than sitting idle? What if I'm underestimating her, and she's keeping up with th
Alex's POV; I watch in horror as Damon's car zooms off. "So, you think you're tough huh? " The tattooed face man questions me as he pulls me off the bed I was kneeling on, and harshly throws me to the ground. I scream in fear and pain as my knees make contact with the hard, wooden floor. The man who had left the room earlier comes back in with, a long, green rope. He hands it over to the other man and he smiles at me devilishly. My sobs and tears increase as I stand up and begin to run around the room begging them to spare me and not ruin my life. One of the men takes hold of my shirt and rips it. Causing my once perfect blouse to now look like an unbuttoned shirt, and allowing my black camisole to come into view. The tattooed man walks over to me and throws a heavy slap across my face "Behave! Don't make me hurt you! "He barks, and I cry in pain and horror as I lay on the floor between these three monsters. My brain has abando
