As soon as they could build a strong relationship, they will hold onto it. Ghino will start valuing Melissa as his friend. And Melissa will do the same to Ghino. They will be depending on each other like what happened between me and Ghino. Worst-case scenario, whatever relationship we could have will swirl between the three of us. Melissa loves me. Ghino loves me. And I love Ghino. In the end, Melissa will be the one to get hurt. Shit. While holding onto that thought, I could barely see a better future between the three of us if Ghino and Melissa will become close friends. It will only lead us to heartaches, betrayal, and destruction. But, what am I supposed to do to make sure the two will not become close friends? Melissa even has their digits already. And as far as I could remember, Ghino already likes Melissa's strong personality. After my first presentation, out of the five songs, that I am going to perform, I had my fifteen minutes break joining Melissa, Ghin
A few minutes later, Melissa's wonderful party has turned into continuous fist fights, broken glasses and plates, and tumbled tables that were scattered on the floor. Aside from that, our faces were also covered in blood, wounds, and bruises. If not because of the restaurant's security guards and servers who eased us off, our fist fight may continue to the point that some of us, either me or Ghino, might shift into a wolf right in front of everyone. Some of the party-goers immediately disappeared from the building to make sure they will not get involved with our fight. I also ordered one of the security guards to send Melissa back to our mansion. "Ghino, your lips are bleeding." Nathan reached out to my face but I quickly shoved his hand away from me. "I'm fine. Go home, Nathan. Melissa might be looking for you if you're not there." Ghino said back as he straightened his crumpled clothes. After straightening his clothes, Ghino leapt back to his friends and open
"The question here now is... Are you challenged?" I'm not gonna lose to Ghino. So, this time, I simply pasted my lips against his and waited for who will give up first. Waiting for the first to slightly move our lips or move away. Currently, both our eyes are closed while feeling each other's soft scented lips. Ghino is trying to hold onto his breath while listening to each other's racing heartbeats. "Don't do this, Nathan," Ghino muttered without even moving the corner of his lips. Afraid to let go of first. "Have mercy on me." "Mercy is for the weak, Ghino. You're not the weak Ghino anymore. And I love the way you are now. Aggressive and fighter." Similar to Ghino, it was the warm air coming from our mouth and nose that resounded our responses. "But, I'm not gonna let you win this time, Nathan. So, what could it be?" Ghino said back. I let go of my hands from his hands and crawled them to his neck, gently rubbing them back and forth between his cheeks. "Then
Before I hopped out of the car, I first reached out to Ghino's digits to check if he was already awake since his first subject will start at 9:30. And he only have thirty more minutes before his class commence. "Are you in your classroom now?" I asked the second he answered the call. Ghino's continuous breathing was evident that he was running. Could even hear the stuff in his backpack shaking. "I'm still driving, Nathan. Can I call you back?" He asked. "Are you still using the bike I gave you?" "Yeah. And if you will not end the call, I might have an accident before I could reach the school." Ghino chuckled. "By the way, your dad dropped by my apartment. He gave me a small box of something. But I haven't checked what's inside of it because I was in a hurry. Could you please tell your dad my appreciation?" Ghino did not even wait for my answer as he ended the call right away. Because I did not get any information about this time box, I started to feel restless
"Gentlemen, I want you to meet my only son, Prince Nathan." Dad eagerly announced to hIs friends. Even dragged his eager smile to each of them, one by one. He could even smile after everything he has done to Ghino earlier. Not to mention we just got an intense debate before I rushed to school. "Your son looks promising as you are, don't you think." One of his friends eagerly stared at me. "I'm not here to get praised, dad." My eyes were locked on him viciously before I poured the bundles of money and Ghino's passport and visa to the ground. Everyone, excluding dad, got surprised about what I had just done. Their eagerness abruptly changed as though their high expectations of me turned to zero. Not to mention they all could sense how furious and deadly my eyes were while standing in front of his friends. "If you wanted to bribe someone with your stupidity, arrogance, and manipulation, Ghino is not the type of wolf who would buy them. Nice try... Dad!" I added.
Leaving no choice, I went back to the mansion with a heavy heart as though the world's problem had befallen me. Heavy enough my legs have lost their strength to walk forward. My arms got numbed to the point that I can't hold onto something. Lost the courage to face the world. Part of me wanted to just disappear and never come back. Without Ghino in my life, my world will be deserted. Colourless. Useless. And the worst of all, my wolf was similar to a corpse. As I was about to step into my room, Mum greeted me with a hard slap. But, on the bright side, my face could barely feel pain anymore. The numbness of my body had already consumed my feelings to feel something. "Is that all you could have, mum? I know you can do better than that." I declared. There goes my second slap from her. This time, my face got a slash from her fingernails. Still, the blood just dropped to my cheek and felt nothing. Maybe it's for the best. "Because of that bastard, you learned how to
As soon as Melissa and I settled inside my Lamborghini, I waited for dad's car to head out of the mansion first before I started the engine. "Do you mind if I ask what you guys discussed earlier before I showed up?" I was supposed to ignore it but, in some ways, part of me wanted to know. My wolf might have a few thoughts being stored in my brain about the possibilities. However, I had to make sure from Melissa herself. "Nothing, in particular, Nathan. Why do you ask? Do you expect your parents and I should discuss about?" Melissa defensively said back as she fastened her seatbelt. How could she consider it nothing in particular when I just witnessed the three of them laughing in unison? The worst part was that they stopped talking and gave me those guilty looks when they saw me approaching. "Nothing. It's just, that I noticed the three of you shared the same laugh and thoughts earlier. So, I was thinking if you told them about our wedding tomorrow." Could not
But no matter how hard I try reinstating the name who to be my better half, reality proves to me one thing that it will always be Melissa who was standing in front of me devoted to being my wife from that day forward, in sorrow and joy, to have and to hold, as long as we both shall live. Right after exchanging our vows, Melissa and I immediately went to the resort owned by my parents to extend our wedding celebration. Our honeymoon state. That night was a do-or-die choice for me. Ghino already chose his decision to break up with the ones he believed love exists. And I choose to be with Melissa for his sake. In addition to that, our honeymoon was inevitable. There was nothing more to tell about it in detail but it happened as part of the ceremony. Needless to say, I cheated on Ghino. "Are we doing the right thing, Nathan?" Melissa muttered as I was caressing her shoulder while we were lying on the same bed, still naked. "This is the right thing, Melissa. We both hav
