~Zara Todd’s POV~
“What the hell are you speaking right now? What kind of hospital? Who is in the hospital?” he asks me with the shock plastered on his face.
“Xavier, please don’t lie to me now. I know everything and I ... I saw him in the hospital. Hurt, with so many injuries and so much bandages in all his body. How can you do that? How can you just do that Xavier?” I grab his clothes on his chest as I lean my head on his chest and cry so much on his chest.
“I don’t get that. I just don’t get the things that you are telling right now. Just fucking tell me what the hell are you talking about?” he shouts as he grabs me away from his body and fixes his eyes on my face but I just cannot face his eyes. I look down on the floor as the tear rolls down my eyes.
“What is it Zara? Just fucking tell me,” he shouts.
“I met Jack! I met Jack in the hospi
~Zara Todd’s POV~ “You lied to me. Why did you lie to me?” I ask this question in front of Jennifer without even being afraid. Why would I be afraid?She tried to trick me with her such an unbelievable game which is so much nasty and unfair. Why the hell did she do that for god’s sake.“I didn’t lie. That’s the truth,” she says.“Oh! Please! Would you please stop being fake? I have asked Xavier about all of this and he knows nothing about Jack and the relationship was never fake for him,” I say.“And you believed?” she raise her brows.“Yes. Why wouldn’t I? He is my husband and he wouldn’t lie to me. I have heard every bits of truth from his own lips. Why would I believe in you instead of believing in my husband who loves me so much,” I say.“You’ve gained the courage.
~Zara Todd’s POV~“How do you know them?” I shout at Jennifer. This thing is just knocking the air off me. I don’t understand what the hell is my dad and mom’s picture doing with her. And they are together as well.I only had a single picture of my parents and for the that single picture of them is the world. I don’t remember lots of things that I did together with my parents. I just have some vague memories of them creeping on my mind. I wish I have more of their memories.But still after that, just with a single picture of them, their image is deeply engraved in my heart. Just with that picture I have imagined my mom and dad in so many of my dreams and have cried for them. So, I know the image of my dad and mom clearly.How can a daughter do a mistake in knowing her own parents? I know these person along with her in those eighties picture is non-other than my own parents.“Yo
~Zara Todd’s POV~‘You don’t deserve to hold that picture.’That sentence triggers Xavier all of a sudden. He looks at her with a mad eyes and then looks back at me and I know what he is going to do the next.“No! No! Don’t do that,” I run to him and quickly grab the picture from his hands and take it away from him.“Zara!” he calls my name with a soft voice as he sees me holding that picture against my chest and tearing out loud.“What the hell are you doing Zara? What’s going on? Who is this man?” he asks.I know he has the same curiosity that I had some moments ago. We young people are so much out of patience. We want everything to be quick and just to be at the time in which we feel okay with.We don’t like when people try to keep us in dark. We have lots of secrets with us. We can hold a lot of secrets tha
~Zara Todd’s POV~ She walks away from the room and we are left in the room together. Both of us being unanswered of the secrets that she wasn’t even willing to tell both of us.“Xavier! She said I killed my parents,” I want to stand up and walk to him but I don’t get to stand up from there. My knees feel so much weak right now. I don’t have any energy to cope up with anything right now.I feel like the whole world around me has become dull and even the air isn’t moving around me. I feel both the hot sensation of burning on my skin while the inner part of my body shivers with the pain.“That’s not truth. I am sure she is telling a lie. She is such a liar. She has been lying to me all her life and she is lying to you as well,” he says as he walks to me and kneels in front of me.He pulls me into his arms and caresses my shoulders a little faster than he u
~Zara Todd's POV~"What?" Xavier freezes at that same point."You liar! You must be lying," he shouts."Why would I lie at the edge of my death? I'm not a fool to joke with my own life," uncle mumbles and Xavier leaves his hands away from him.He becomes hopeless all of a sudden. He surely hated his mother. She never loved him. She never even cared for him.But how much we hate our parents, how much they don't care about us, it's certain that we won't love to hear any bad things to our parents.I don't know what is it called but it's a special bond that connects us with our parents. Even we don't love them we can't hate them hundred percent and that's because they are our parents.Uncle runs away as he leaves his hands from his body and aunt follows.One more time, it's just two of us standing in the midst of the room, speechless and lost.Before, I thought it was me and at that time, it hurt him.<
