I’m not sure how our sweet, wholesome interaction last night ended up to a silent, awkward drive to the office. I remembered how we even laughed and talked about nonsense shits last night over pasta and hot chocolates. The television was on but we’re way engrossed and entertained with each other’s company.
We went to bed nearly eleven, and he kissed me twice on the temple after walking me to the guest room. And in the morning, we couldn’t look at each other’s eyes anymore. Breakfast was awfully awkward! Every attempt to start a conversation was a massive failure.
He parked the car to his usual spot. He’d mostly open the door for me… but since we’re not in a very nice ambiance, I assisted myself out. I saw him ran to my side but immediately stopped when he found me already out of the car. Jupiter sighed as he pocketed his hand, the other holding his laptop bag.
I awkwardly smiled at him as I headed to
(Remains on the female lead’s point of view)Venus was rambling so bad behind me as I knocked shortly at her twin brother’s door before pushing it open. Jupiter looked up from his computer and I immediately noticed the eyeglass he’s wearing. Great! He look good in it.“Hi!” Venus chirped from behind and I shook my head, sighing as we stepped inside his office. I made another glass of juice since Venus finished the first one I made.“Juice in ten minutes, she said.” Jupiter raised a brow and I shrugged, motioning to his twin sister who’s already seated on the visitor’s chair in front of him. “The hell is happening to you? Are you high on something?”Venus laughed before tucking the loose strands of her hair behind her ear. Now I don’t mean to be judgmental but she look absolutely stupid right now. Ridiculously stupid! The smile and spark on her face is something else!
(Remains on the female lead’s point of view)“Juno! Ah, my favorite niece. This sudden visit is such a surprise to me,” he smiled fakely at me before his eyes surveyed my companies. “I see you brought some friends… and police.”“What the hell is this?” Tatiana leered at me while I remain smirking at them.“Didn’t I told you yesterday to begin packing your things?”Uncle Alvin’s face immediately paled. He glowered at my smirking face and I can see the utter terror in his expression when the policemen behind us stepped forward to present the warrant of arrest to him.Uncle glared at me darkly. The horror in his face was gone and now replaced with anger. “Damn you! I will never let you take away this mansion from me! This is ours! Tatiana is to inherit this-”“That is not what the papers said, Mr. Soledad. Your niece is the leg
Venus and Juno went back in the office at noon with a delightful news to share with me. Both girls were squealing and overjoyed while they were telling me every details of the story. I was happy, too. They even made a reservation at a nearby Japanese restaurant for a mini celebration tonight.I turned off my computer so I can take a quick peek next door. We still have two more hours to spend in the office but I’m done and already finished more than the tasks I assigned to myself for this day. I guess it wouldn’t hurt if I’d have an early out…“Hey, girls! How is it going?” I walked in inside Juno’s office and found the two of them on the single sofa occupied on the tablet in Venus’ hand. Juno was sitting on the sofa’s armrest while leaning down on the gadget’s screen. “What are you girls doing?”I walked towards them and tried to peek on the screen but Venus quickly hid it fro
“I dare you to… kiss me!” Venus exclaimed confidently while giggling loudly beside Jace who seemed extremely uncomfortable with the game she desperately made us join. “Of course, cheek only!” She even batted her eyelashes on him!I bit my lower lip before sipping on my cucumber juice as I felt the second hand embarrassment struck me. Jupiter was beside me while the other two was seated on the chairs across us. The wide oak table was dividing us from them and in front of us were the nearly empty plates of food we enjoyed for dinner. There were also a few bottles of alcohol scattered on top of the table.Venus is definitely drunk now since she’s the only one enjoying the game. Everything was in favor of her every time it was Jace’s turn to answer questions or do some dares. The gracefulness and elegance she was sporting to him this morning were gone and all that’s left was her crazy kinda obsessed for the hot
(Remains on the female lead’s point of view)Saturday came and up until now, I’m still completely puzzled about the sudden change of his mind about my attendance on the yacht party. Just a few days ago, he was firm and stern about avoiding that damn ship. Now I wonder if the phone call has an influence to his sudden decision. And who called him?I sighed before turning off the computer so I can finally get ready to leave. Venus will fetch me at seven at the condominium. I haven’t bought a swimwear or any outfit for the party but she assured to bring me some of hers. She also invited Jace, but after what happened during our dinner a few days ago, I don’t think he would want to attend and be near her craziness again.Meanwhile, Jupiter went out for a business meeting this noon and hasn’t come back yet. It’s been four hours which is unexpectedly long. I tried to message him but there’s not a sing
(Remains on the female lead’s point of view)Venus helped me with my make-up and hair to speed up our time so we can finally leave and make our way to the party. The yacht was docked in a luxury beach resort nearly forty minutes away from the city. It’ll sail not too far from the beach so we can enjoy the sea and get the party officially started.Jupiter decided to drive us there. I chose to sit on the back to let the birthday twins have their moment in front. He’s still oddly silent while Venus kept checking her face on the tiny mirror she brought for a quick retouch. I got pretty conscious with whatever she’s doing so I grabbed my phone so I can also check on my own make-up.Jupiter caught my attention when I heard him purposely let out a cough so I looked up at him through the rear view mirror and our eyes immediately locked. The mini interaction brought spark all over my body so I quickly looked away and cl
(Remains on the female lead’s point of view)“Oh my gosh! You two are seriously the cutest couple on the internet right now!”“So I guess we’re too luck to witness that kiss personally?”“Girl, it would’ve been better if you kissed him on the lips.”“Seriously, you two will make an adorable front page cover to our magazine! Would you like to hear and consider my offer?”I was so overwhelmed at the flow of compliments and greetings from Venus’ circle when I got up on the deck. The beautiful ladies immediately rushed towards me, offering their hands to introduce themselves and to voice out their opinions and reactions about my relationship with Jupiter.Venus laughed and pulled me closer to her, shushing her friends when she noticed how I’m drowning from their presence and words.“Calm down, girls. Juno here is pretty shy- wel
Everything was planned. I remember how thrilled I felt when I was planning and arranging my supposed birthday dinner with Juno that Saturday night. I remember the many nights I spent in my bedroom, writing down my feelings and confession in my phone’s note app for her.I would recite it to her as I ask for her hand so we can dance in the middle of the fancy restaurant I rented just for us two. A classical piano piece would play in the background. And then I would start my confession speech about how she managed to shake my whole system and confuse the hell out of me.I wouldn’t say that I’m in love with her. I think it’s such a strong word. But definitely, there’s a strong force of attraction that kept pulling me towards her. And if I won’t talk this one out with her, I’m sure I would drown and burst in this bubble of feeling that I couldn’t put a label to.It’s supposed to be one of the most me
