Chapter 33Charity POV'I'm going to chase you for real this time' I scoffed and cursed under my breath before walking into the school compound. As always, some of the students I bumped into on my way kept throwing glances at me and I didn't even bother to give them attention. I held my backpack tightly and headed to my class.I stopped in front of the class and took a deep breath before I walked inside, and headed to my seat. "Who does she think she is? Because she is dating one of the shareholders of the school now she thinks she can boast about like that?""She's so shameless. Who knows, maybe she seduced him too. Doctor Mason would never have settled someone like her,""Seducing Chase wasn't enough, now she has seduced that young man and had him wrapped around her finger? Gosh! I had no idea people are still this shameless these days,""If she were my sister, I would've cut ties with her. I can't be family with someone this shameless," Some of the students were saying clearly to
Chapter 34Charity POV"I'm so jealous of you, girl. Everyone is going crazy over you. I'm the best friend to a celebrity," Enny whined on our way to the canteen, her attention all on her phone, but I scoffed."Does this look like a joke to you, Enny? My life is getting messed up and you are making a joke out of it? Amazing! I should cut you off real soon," I rolled my eyes, and she scoffed."Who said that I'm joking? Two handsome and super-wealthy men are going to be fighting over you soon, isn't that amazing? It's no joke," She cupped her cheeks in her palms and whined. I stopped and glared hard at her."Do you want to die?" I glared at her, but she grinned at me foolishly while still holding her cheeks."Ugh! You are so annoying," I shook my head and turned to go to the canteen, I stopped when I spot Chase and the other members of the group walking toward me, and as expected, students were following them. What do they want now? I already rejected and told him I wasn't interested, s
Chapter 35Charity POV"Ugh! I think I'm going to lose my mind, Enny. Chase is driving me nuts," I whined frustratingly as we walked down the road minutes after the school dismissed."You are in the spotlight now, so you should enjoy all you can," Again, she spilled those annoying words and I could swear that I had the urge to strangle her but tried to resist it."I may end up killing you one day, I promise," I glared hard at her, and she chuckled."Whatever! Guess what?" She squeaked excitedly."What's up?""I had lunch with Knox on the rooftop earlier, and I must confess that he's really sweet. I think I like him already. Do you think he likes me?" She held my hand and asked, blushing hard."In your dreams!" I slapped her forehead, and she winced."You didn't have to do that..." She whined, and I scoffed."I'm trying to wake you from that nonsense fantasy. You are not mad, right?" I asked her, but she rolled her eyes."Knox is not as bad as other members of the group. He is humble,
Chapter 36Chase POVI drove recklessly on the driveway, hitting the maximum speed. I was so angry that I didn't even care if anything happens to me or if I get into an accident."Ugh! Who the fuck does he think he is? Threatening me? Uh! I feel like killing him!" I yelled at the top of my voice as I pulled over at the side of the road, hitting the steering wheel and venting out all my anger on it. I felt my throat burning like a lump of hot red coal was placed on it. It was burning so hot that I could feel the radiation in my stomach. My blood felt like it was heated, and all I wanted right now was to punch that bastard."How dare that bastard! Uh!" I scoffed again, hitting the steering wheel. I threw the door open and stepped out of the car, slamming the door close behind me and hitting my leg on the tyre until I was worn out, so I just leaned against the car and scoffed loudly."Just because he is her boyfriend he thinks he owns her? He thinks he can talk to me like I'm a piece of
Chapter 37A few days later Charity POV"You look perfect," Enny gushed over my look, and even I knew that I looked different today. The long red pretty gown adorned with stones fitted me perfectly like it was tailored for me alone. I had no idea Enny was a stylist until today, and I must confess that she is really good at what she does. She did quite a perfect job on my hair and my make-up too. Mason called me yesterday that he was going to pick me up today being Saturday so we could go see his Mom. More like his Mom invited me over. Gosh! I'm so nervous."Is this really necessary, Enny? Not that we are doing a real thing, anyway," I rolled my eyes when she added more makeup to my face, but she scoffed."You should make this real. That is the deal. Remember you are not going there as a high schooler, so you need to look your best as the working-class lady that you are," She reminded me, emphasizing the working class, but I rolled my eyes."Whatever," I scoffed."Gosh! Just look at y
Chapter 38Charity POV"You are welcome to my humble abode. It's nice to have you here," I wasn't expecting his Mom to be as welcoming and accommodating as this, but she amazed me. I thought all wealthy people were arrogant, but she has given me a new picture to hold on to."Don't conclude yet. She doesn't know that you are a poor girl, Ms.," My subconscious mind reminded me, and I sighed briefly, giving my decision a second thought."Thank you, ma'am," I bowed slightly."You can call me Mom, please. My son is going to marry you soon, so you shouldn't be so formal with me," I almost choked on my spit when she said that, and I was forced to look at Mason, but the idiot turned his face away and left me to smile like a fool. I just hope this woman doesn't mistake this as something serious. How the heck will I explain to her that I was a hired girlfriend?"Hmm," I smiled at her nervously."I made this especially for you. I took my time to make it myself. You should try it," She uttered as
Chapter 39"Ch... Chase? What the heck are you doing here?" He shrugged, his hands tucked inside his pockets."Is there anything wrong with coming to see my girlfriend?" He asked as he covered the distance between them, and she huffed unbelievably."Gir... girlfriend? I told you to stop addressing me like that, Chase. I'm not your girlfriend for fuck's sake. Stop coming to my house, please," She said to him sternly and walked past him, but he held her hand and pulled her back."Are you walking out on me, huh?" He scoffed unbelievably as he turned to face her, his eyes blazing with anger."You are not expecting me to stand here with you, right?""How much did he pay you?" He asked, his face holding a serious expression, and Charity's heart skipped for a moment. How did he know that she was paid for this? Is he stalking her? She asked herself and swallowed the lump that formed in her throat as she stared at him wordlessly, not knowing what to reply to him with."Is it because of the bea
Chapter 40"What do you mean you are moving with Charity?" Knox asked as he watched Chase pack his things."It's just temporary, man. I'm not going to stay there forever. You are making it look like I'm leaving forever," Chase paused and looked at Knox."This doesn't make any sense, honestly. You can't possibly leave this place just like that, Chase. I mean, it doesn't make any sense," Jax spoke up as he sat on Chase's bed."There is nothing wrong with that, Jax...""To what end, Chase? To what fucking end are you going to do this? This is madness. I'm your friend and I should tell you the truth. You've fucking lost it," Tristan lamented bitterly, the urge to slap Chase at the back of his head maybe to reset his brain spurred through him but he held back himself. Causing trouble was the last thing on his mind at that moment."Come on, guys. Can you all stop making this look like a big deal when it's nothing? We are still going to see often, we are still going to school together, and..
