“Where are the girls? No, wait, where’s Aliaa?” Chris didn't want to voice it, but he did as he looked at Luke and he glances at his phone as they are all enjoying a glass of champagne under the shades. Philip and Xiuming had requested it and it didn’t seem wrong to have a bit of alcohol during the day. "Where is she? Has she eaten yet? How come she hasn’t read any of my text?"
“Maybe still at the coffee house, gossiping? You know how girls are, especially your cousin,” Luke shrugs like it wasn’t a big deal. “Aren’t you worried?” he held back his tongue at how laid back his best friend looked. “About what?”
“She’s not here, in front of you. Aren’t you worried about her? Something can happen to her you know...?”
“Of course I worry about her, she’s my fiancée… but she also wants some time away from me to spend it with her friends
Meanwhile, as the family members from both sides arrived to join the open barbecue, a blonde male walked towards the lobby to check in with the rest. But he stopped short when he saw a familiar figure walking in the same direction as him, “Cameron!” calling to the said female, she turned around and smiled brightly at him in surprise. Her heart raced when he came toward her with a smile plastered on his handsome face. "Did you just got here?" both of them asked at the same time, and it caused them to laugh before nodding at the same time. Winking at Cameron, Raymond didn't need to say anything else for her to know that he was going to flirt with her as if he never met her. “Yeah, I was about to enter the lobby but I saw you’re beautiful face from a mile away,” and with that, she chuckled with a shake of her head. It might look like she was used to his joke but truth be told, deep down, she had always loved and hated it when he does. Hated it because he doesn't mean a word he says as h
"There you are!" Jihyun almost jumped in surprise when she 'exit' the comfort room. Acting as if she wasn't scared by his panicked and worried call earlier, and as if she wasn't just pushed up against the walls a few feet away from where they stood by her ex. Jihyun looked at Chris with a look of pure shock and almost felt overwhelmed when he looked at her for a little too long."Chris? Is everything okay?""Okay?! Are you-" he looked almost ridiculed for having the woman asked him if he was fine, "I am not okay Jihyun! Didn't I just tell you how worried I was when I couldn't reach you earlier today?" If she was faking her shock a few minutes ago, this time it was real. "You asked to be excused to the comfort room but it's been almost fifteen minutes and I was this close to losing my mind thinking something bad happened to you!"Jihyun blinked her eyes, as she didn't know how to reply to his worried attitude and gesture. She knows he was worried for her sa
Jihyun stare at the ceiling with a sigh, she’d thought being Chris’s fake girlfriend was easy, but it was easier said than done and what’s worst, her feelings got confused just by his small touches and gentle words. Somehow, it didn’t help either when Raymond suddenly showed up, she’s is afraid that Raymond will tell Chris the truth before she got the chance to explain herself. "It’d be easy if I don’t feel anything… is the theory or falling for someone in 60 seconds real? Am I falling for him? But why am I so scared of him finding out? Does it have anything to do with my feelings at all?" thoughts after thoughts flood into her mind, making her move her small frame relentlessly around the bed. Unknown to her, Chris was watching her closely, “You know, you’ve been sighing a lot after we left the party, was it my parents?” Chris could not take his eyes away from her lying on the bed, looking lost and a bit distraught. Chris dragged her back to their room and Jihyun immediately sank he
Waking up and feeling like her body was made out of leads, she frowned when the emptiness of the room greeted her. Trying to recall what happened to her before her nap, Jihyun's nose scrunched as her memories were blurry. "Did something happened to me?" she asked aloud as she looked into the vanity mirror, confused as to why there was a hickey on her collarbone suddenly. Try as she might, the happenstance of Luke and Aliaa's old schoolmates flashed and what came next played a stupid movie for her."CHRIS!" she blushed yet her red face wasn't just because she felt butterflies with his action, but it was also due to the fact she was frustrated with the male. His "Don't question the skin-ship I do or intent," was driving her crazy as their days here progressed.***“Don’t, don't go Jihyun...” he whispers in his deep voice as if he knew what kind of effect it has on her, letting shivers run down her spine, back hugging her still.“W-why?” Jihyun shuttered, "Shit!" she felt Chris’s hug t
