When life turns its back at you, all you can do is turn your back and run. Emerald Dubrow did that just well, choosing a university far from home, but life’s more than a decision. All effort seems aborted when she meets an obnoxious ex in the same school just when she's putting herself out there. What’s worse; he wants her back. Caught in between a hot, sorry ex and shiny brown eyes that rolled his jeans way up to his ankles, Emerald must make a quick decision.View More
My phone dropped to the couch after receiving an invitation from the police again to give my statement concerning Sandra's demise. Now, it was starting to get all scary because I had told them everything that happened, how and when. And to think I wasn't as close as the last call made it out to be. I was starting to get freaked out."Who was it?" Mimi asked, sat close to me like she hadn't made out anything from the conversation. Or my horrified expresssion made her curious."They want me to come by the station to give another statement," I said and she wore a dubious look."Didn't we do that already?" She asked. "Sandra died and was buried three weeks ago.""But it doesn't mean they've finished their job which is--finding her killer."She gave a sarcastic laugh. "You know it's so funny how relaxed you are about this. It's almost like you want to stare in a Sherlock Holmes movie.
Emerald"Why did you change your mind about going out?" Was the first thing I asked Mimi, striding into the living room, getting back from James's. I was surprised not to find her in the sitting room. She always woke up early and was usually making breakfast at the time. Blowing my cheeks, I started toward the kitchen first to have a glass of milk. Surprisingly, James and I did nothing but cuddle, seeing a movie. It was cute how he could be that way with me, doing nothing sexual but embracing me like I was the most important thing in his world. It did leave me thinking if he was really cool with how I had been lately or if he had been getting it somewhere else.Gulping the glass like a dehydrated horse, I placed the glass on the counter and headed to our bedroom to get her. She was such a witch to know the dress o had chosen to wear wasn't all that but it didn't stop James from calling me beautiful. I opened the door of the room slightly, ta
DevinHearing the car park in front of our apartment, I wondered if Damon had come again and went to peek through the window to discover it was Steve who had arrived quite early than normal. He had borrowed my car to attend one of the parties thrown by a part of our crew. His disposition as he climbed out of the car didn't like he had had plenty of fun.As he progressed toward the door, I went to lay back on the chair, so I didn't seem like a creep. He let himself in with the spare key I had given him in case I had fallen asleep and was surprised to find me in the living room."Rough night?" I asked, placing the phone I had pretending to text on away. He only nodded and started toward the chair close to me and handed me over my keys. "Thanks man."He sighed, dropping to the couch and I wondered what could have gone so bad at the party. Steve never returned home from one of those parties moody, instea
MimiWhining my waist softly to the beat in the midst of the crowd, I found a guy with blonde hair, staring at me with desire written all over his face. It motivated me to twist even more and bend my backside more than necessary. He was on a plain peach colored shirt on jean pants and didn't look like one to approach me.Meanwhile, I was turned at the fact that I was gaining a lot of attention. Since he did nothing but stare like a lost skull, I danced a bit teasing him and then averted my eyes from him. It hadn't been up to a minute when I felt a finger on my shoulder. I almost jerked away until I found out it was him. His turquoise eyes were to die for and were full of lust. I was fully aware of how hot I was and how much I knew how to work my body. It wasn't going to be anything serious if anything because it was already for the wrong reasons.I wanted to feel sexy. He was attracted to me physically. It wasn't the kind of love at f
MimiI stared blankly at Javier's text, asking to meet up. It was obviously a booty call but I wondered why I still considered it in the first place. Breathing out, I touched the back of my neck and brought it to caress my upper chest. If anything, he was good in bed and knew all my favorite spot but he didn't want anymore attachments than getting a free screw."You are going to be home when I get back yeah?" Emerald asked and then emptied her glass of mango juice on the table. She was dressed in a pink, long free dress, going to hang out with James. I wondered why she was dressed in that maternity outfit to see him. They hadn't made it to the boyfriend and girlfriend stage so I stuck with calling him 'him'.I wet my lips and sat upright, placing both of my hands on my lap. "Yeah, I should."She had gradually started to live life again and I was happy about it. She squinted at me dubiously and I gritted my tee
EmeraldThe harsh breeze came upon my skin giving me goose bumps and making me feel more overwhelmed than I already was. The only ever burial I had attended was for my mom’s elder sister who had died in a car accident fourteen years ago. Though as a child back then, I could sense the oddness of the atmosphere with people crying and dressed in all black and really dark shades. Flowers that were dropped on the casket with so much sadness and hurt rather receiving a rose from a lover on Valentine’s.Mimi squeezed on my shoulder, trying to sooth me. James was on my left hand side too, holding me slightly by the waist. He was as sad as the rest of us. Who came to a burial excited anyway?There were days to mourn and make you think about what you plan to do for the rest of your life. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted but I definitely didn’t want to die and have my friends a
MimiWalking to the vegetable section in the store, my shoulders bumped in on someone and he pulled back immediately from me. I was slightly irritated and was going to curse the shit out of him but when I looked up, it was Emerald's Devin. I shouldn't be calling him that since she isn't with him and is with James and Devin was also moving on with his life I guess.It was really strange to see him there and I stared awkwardly thinking about what to say to him.He pointed at me, wearing an amiable smile. "I think the last time I saw you, you were with groceries. This could be a sign."I scoffed and rolled my eyes. "A sign of what exactly?"I hated that I came off meaner than expected and looked down at the floor to get my act together. I just wasn't having it today. We hadn't been since yesterday we reecieeved the news that Sandra kicked the bucket. So, yeah, my actions were unders
EmeraldI blinked rapidly staring at her mom and the man and Mimi looked at me with a blank expression before tears formed in her eyes.Sandra was really gone. I still couldn’t believe it. It didn’t seem like her parents were acting either. My shoulders fell back being too weak and Mimi came close to assist me back up. I put my hand on my chest, feeling the deep cut in my heart. I could feel her absence. I started to think about the first time I met her at the diner up till the very moment when I got fired. She accompanied me to the bathroom, pleading that I helped her friend out with her shift. Her dark blue eyes were still in my head and how beautiful she looked giving a puppy eyes. She was beautiful and sweet. A little bit reserved but low-key fun when she wanted to be. I was in the process of getting to know her more and it still surprised me how close she thought I was to her that she called me inst
Emerald"Hurry, Sophia!" Mimi yelled at her friend who had been taking much time than necessary to get ready. First of all, she woke up really late feeling a little hungover for taking drinks at the club and now it felt like it was hard to process anything.Mimi checked the time on her watch and wiggled her legs, growing more impatient by the minute. The plan was to drop Sophia off at campus and head back to check on Sandra to see if her surgery had gone well.Blowing out my cheeks, I pounce down on the couch. "I wonder what's taking her so long. She said fifteen more minutes and it's been a decade already."Mimi laughed, shaking her head at my exaggeration.Sophia had taken another twelve minutes to herself before coming out from our bathroom. She looked better in Mimi's black mini dress and with her heavy make up off. While others seemed to look good with makeup, that wasn
