It's been twenty-four hours since Kane made his confession in front of me. The man looked frantic as he explained everything. He was really frustrated to make me buy his words. But I'm not an easy woman to convince after what he did to me. How dare he deceive me about his strange disorder. I knew he was just lying to me and wanted to test me. Kane doesn't really get itching when it comes to women he thinks are beautiful. He turned out to be just an excuse to cover up something else. His past.
Fuck that guy. I've been silent on him since yesterday. We have spent twenty-four hours more silent than talking. Maybe the number of words I put out for him could be counted on my fingers right now. We were only talking when Kane's mother gave us a honeymoon ticket to Switzerland. And after that we didn't say anything until this morning we had breakfast on the roof of one of the best hotels in Bern.
“My mother called this morning asking how our trip in Switzerland was. She
"Hi mom, I'm fine here." I was just getting out of the bathroom when mom called. I've seen it three times and this is the fourth time mom has called me tonight. But I really don't know if my cell phone has been ringing since earlier because I was busy enjoying soaking in the hot water with the liquid soap that smells of spring flowers which is very fragrant. I bought it at one of the souvenir shops I found in Old Town. And now I feel satisfied because the floral fragrance is so soothing and very comfortable on my skin. "I had just finished showering. This day is very exhausting. We were walking around Old Town when it was snowing hard.” I lay on the bed with a bathrobe wrapped around me and a towel over my head to dry my wet hair while listening to my mother talk about things. “Looks like you enjoyed your time with Kane well. The cold air there will add to the romantic atmosphere between you. Are you two lying on the bed to warm each other up?” <
Knock knock I knocked on Kane's door slowly. While waiting for the man to open the door, I began to look myself up and down. Hopefully he doesn't feel allergic if he sees me wearing tacky clothes like this. An ankle-length skirt, an oversized and tacky pink shirt, thick glasses, fake moles, and hair tied in two. Great! My appearance is absolutely disgusting. I really wonder to myself why I prepared this outfit before flying to Switzerland. But all because of Kane. The man repeatedly told me to look tacky in front of him. So I suddenly had this outfit ready in my suitcase, even though when I put all this outfit in my suitcase, I was determined not to wear it. But it's become somewhat useful now. For a mission. Kane really took too long to open the door. I knocked on his door again with a louder bang, then waited nervously. If the guy I'm going to meet is a normal guy, then he'll definitely feel nauseous when he sees me dressed like this. But since the man I'm going to
Two hours later I was still in Kane's room. Sitting quietly on the white sofa in the corner of Kane's room, I was busy observing Kane's peacefully sleeping face. That guy was really weird. He could be calmer and cuter when he was asleep like that. Two hours ago he was still pissing me off with his whining and noisy babbling. Like a baby with a fever and fussy, he kept complaining about his itchy nose, his eyes starting to get watery, and his body getting so cold even though I had the heater on max mode that I was sweating. But now look at that noisy man, he has turned very calm after taking the cold medicine I gave him and is fast asleep like a baby wrapped in a blanket. I walked slowly to his bed, trying to make as little noise as possible in his very quiet room so I wouldn't disturb his deep sleep. He was so handsome when he was sleeping, no doubt about it. My body bent over him, observing the movement of his caught breath and then placed my palm on his forehead to take hi
"Laurel? Laurel Stuart?” I blinked a few times, trying to adjust to the unfamiliar surroundings. My body moved to the right, squirming, and I scratched my scalp a few times in a daze. I heard someone calling me from a very close distance. I could even feel his warm breath against my face. But I'm very sleepy. I still want to close my eyes and curl up in this narrow place. Look, even my feet can't be fully accommodated in this place. I had to bend it and sleep in a snuggled position like a baby in the womb. And my eyes slowly closed again. “Laurel, you don't want to wake up? My baby Laurel?” Hah? What? Who called me in such a disgusting voice? Nobody ever called me that. Not even my mother. Instantly I opened my eyes, surprised to see Kane's face that was right above me. The man flashed an extremely disgusting seductive smile, as if he was trying to lure a woman in a bar. I blinked my eyes many times, frozen to s
"What are we going to do after this?" That's the fifth question I've asked Kane today. He was probably tired of hearing the same questions from me and this time chose to ignore me. I'm really bored. There's nothing we can do in these conditions. The snow was falling harder and harder outside. When I watched the morning news on tv an hour ago the news anchor told me about the possibility that today's blizzard would only stop at night. Everyone is advised not to leave the house unless there is an urgent need. The local government made an announcement asking shop owners to close immediately as the storm would continue to worsen into the evening. Automatically there is no activity in the middle of the city. This city became like a dead city that was very quiet. Even the hotel staff are not in complete formation. The cooker told us when we were about to order breakfast that he was taking longer to deliver the breakfast due to a large number of orders from visitors, while four of
"Come in. You have to see the inside." Kane said as he pulled my hand to enter the new house we were going to live in. I continued to follow his footsteps with a feeling of excitement and nervousness. I still can't believe that I now have my own house. After this I'm going to live here with Kane and I really have to be the perfect ideal wife. But if Kane's phobia has not completely healed, then my dreams of being the perfect ideal wife will just disappear. Today I had to dress up in a tacky style again in front of him because Kane's strange phobia flared up after I teased him in Switzerland. It was indeed a very chaotic honeymoon. We planned to stay in Switzerland for a week, but suddenly Kane canceled the plan for various reasons. His deteriorating condition was the first reason. Then the second reason, he told me he had an urgent meeting with his client that he couldn't postpone. So after our condition improved on the third day, Kane immediately booked a plane tick
Ughh.. It's tiring. What an annoying man! I had to unpack up all our stuff, while he actually enjoyed his time off by swimming in the backyard. He thinks I'm a servant here? Huh, that really sucks. I didn't stop grumbling while cleaning this house. I don't clean all these rooms in this house of course since this house is too big to handle on my own. But at least I need to clean the room that will become our room and the kitchen. Those are mandatory places on my list to clean. The room we are going to be in is very messy. I need to do a lot of things to beautify this room. Now in my hands I have collected a lot of cardboard and plastic waste that I found in this house. Kane had bought some furniture before and it had a lot of cardboard and plastic that I needed to throw away after I took it apart. “Kane, where's the trash can? I want to throw all of this away.” I screamed by the pool while waiting for him to emerge from the water. I looked up and saw Kane had
"How, is it delicious?" After changing clothes, I decided to cook in the kitchen. Kane was actually planning to order pizza, but I forbade it and preferred to make a bowl of chicken soup instead. After all, pizza is not good for health because it contains too much fat and oil. It's healthier to cook your own food at home. I finally decided to make him some soup. Eating soup after swimming is believed to make the body fresh and warm again. "Not bad. At least this soup is still edible and doesn't poison me." "Okay, whatever you want. Right now I'm not in the mood to reply to you," I said sarcastically as I scooped the soup into my mouth. We both ate in silence. Neither of us spoke. Only the clinking of spoons against plates filled the silence between us. Kane seems to be enjoying my cooking. He didn't say much after shoving the soup into his mouth. I glanced at him repeatedly to make sure the facial expressions that were printed there were only expressi
