It's my first day at work and I thought it would be great. It's not like my colleagues are not nice but I can't stop getting frustrated over my life. I left the villa without meeting Christian. And I miss him now.
I thought we'd have a great start to this day. He would wish me luck with a sweet morning kiss and it would be perfect. However, I can't take things out of my head.
I feel low.
I feel bad.
From the moment I got to I was literally treated like a material, it freaked me out. No matter how badly he claims to love me, it's definitely not the way he should have made me his. I can't accept it anyway. No sane woman can accept to be materialised.
I sigh, pulling off my chemical gloves and washing my hands. It's been a long shift.
"I hope I didn't bore you", Jacob says, washing his hands.
ChristianI can't describe the feeling in words. It feels like someone had poured water into the dead plant after the entire day. I kiss her forehead as she rubs her cheek against my chest, closing her eyes. I gently slide my fingers under her wet strands of hair and tuck them behind her ear, revealing her fresh beautiful skin."Too tired, my baby wife?" I chuckle."Umm! I'm sleepy," she rubs her eyes, speaking in a drowsy tone."Have you eaten something, huh?" I ask."No. I wanna sleep," she mumbles."Hey, no. Don't sleep now. Get up. You'll eat first," I scoff, parting her head away from my chest.Her eyes are still closed as she curls up her face. "No. I'm sleepy," she cries out."You need to eat first. I don't even know if you ate something the entire day. Don't throw tantrums and open your eyes," I shrug, getting her off my lap."You
Emily I’m freaking out here with my stupid ex-boyfriend on the fucking road. It was beyond my expectation that I would bump into him like this. Well, I didn’t bump into him. This idiot has been stalking me for a couple of days to talk. Talk? What should we even talk about? People talk about misunderstandings, not about cheating! “Listen, Ryan. I’m being patient enough. If you don’t leave my hand right now, I will— “What’s happening here?” A familiar voice comes from behind. I freeze. It’s my grouch boss’s voice. Before I can look behind, he steps near me and frowns at Ryan. They have awkward eye contact as I see Kane’s eyes coming down to our hands. That fucking asshole is still holding my hand when I’m struggling to get away. I don’t wanna be embarrassed in front of my boss. I’m left dumbfounded, gawking at him. “Whatever
KaneWe come into Miss Benson's little apartment on the third floor and according to human nature, I should be rolling my eyes around the apartment. It's still not fully settled for a person to stay in. It contains a single room and there's still a lot of stuff packed in boxes."Sorry, it's too small", she mutters, pressing a forced smile. "I can only afford it for now""That's fine. Once I used to have the same kind of apartment", I say with a smile.She seals her lips and pauses staring at me without even blinking her eyes."Miss Benson", I roll my eyes."Yes", her lips widen into a l
Ivanna "You don't reply to my messages", Irene husks in a disappointed tone as we sip from the iced coffee. "I don't get time to chat. There's too much happening", I lie. A few minutes can be easily managed but my sister being the ex of my husband is definitely not a very comfortable thing. I know how Irene is. She's good at heart but sometimes she's too difficult to handle. "Once you had time to gossip with me for hours on the call. You had two jobs right then and you were a full-time student. You had no servant in your tiny apartment and did everything alone. Was life easier than this one back then?" She can attack straight on the spot. IvannaReality hits us with my phone ringing somewhere. I strive to get away from his grip but he doesn't let me go. He stares at me— still in the muse."Chris," I whisper, squirming in his arms. "My phone's buzzing""Let it buzz," he husks.The air becomes heavy between us and I know if I let it go with the flow, we'll end up on the bed like always. We always do it after a mess and I don't know how intense love making makes it all easy for a while.Just for a while!I don't want a temporary convenience. Nor do I want to solve it every time like this. He tucks my hair gently behind my ear as

Emily"Miss Benson, I apologise for leaving without letting you know and I hope you won't face any problem regarding the lock. The key must be somewhere around. Thanks for your hospitality. You don't need to attend the office until I come back to the city. I'll let you know once I'm back. And take care"I have read this note more than ten times since I got it on the table. My morning started differently on the couch today. When I woke up, I almost panicked about Kane, thinking he might have fallen asleep too and missed his flight.However, he was already gone. I panicked again thinking about the lock but he was too smart to manage to get out of here. The most surprising thing was the blanket.I didn't know my
Ivanna"No!" I whisper to myself in disbelief with my entire body icing over there.It's not possible. I feel sweat forming all over my forehead and goosebumps all over my body. It can't be true.Adrian!He can't be. In just a single moment, all the flashes of that night rewind in front of my eyes. I shiver, gasp and sweat, grabbing the pillar next to me."Okay, that's fine. I'm coming over there," he adds.I gulp, drawing my eyebrows together and looking behind.Adrian is on a call.
IvannaI love the sky. And I love his company while staring at the countless stars over there. He knows it so well.He brings me to an unfamiliar spot. It has nothing around. No construction, no locality. It's an open field, surrounded by a row of trees. As he said, the place is under review to have some construction and the best place to watch the dark sky.I don't remember for how long we're staring at the stars. I'm indeed looking for mom and chase and he must be doing the same for his lost ones. At least, there's a similarity between us which connects us more than anything.When two lonely people looking for comfort after ages, they are automatically connected. I always wondered what's the only thing to make me bound to this man even after so many crucial secrets.Because unknowingly enough, he filled all the voids of my life as I did to him."Why didn't you look for him?"
