Days did pass; I longed for him. Each day that passed, I sat in the window area watching Seth. Could this be it? Do I actually love him as well, and I don’t know it? I have only felt this loving feeling for one person ever, and that was Michael.It has been years, and I doubt I feel the same way. I have wanted to feel that love again, but it never came.I watched ever so lovingly; happiness was all I felt, but the obvious thought of him slowly becoming beyond my reach had triggered me: do I have the capacity to let him go? What was that behavior like before, Scarlett? Look at yourself; you don’t even eat unless you have gotten a glimpse of Seth.It was fear, maybe.Fear of what people will say, fear of what my children will think of me if I choose to leave Michael... I know now that I should choose myself and where my happiness lies.I had chosen a great opportunity to say it all to him that I chose him.I got up excited as I ran to the door and opened it, only to find Carmela; she cl
As soon as Michael was gone and there was no trace of him, I went to Seth’s place. I was unsure whether to unlock the door with the key in my hand or wait for him to come, as his door was locked, signifying that he was yet in.After giving it a little thought, I decided to do it either way, hoping he doesn’t get angry or maybe he might see it as a sweet gesture from me.I set the key in and twisted it on both ends to unlock when I heard a voice from behind me: “I guess because I work for you, I shouldn’t have a bit of privacy because why are you breaking and entering an apartment that clearly belongs to your worker? Aren’t you worried people might find this suspicious?”I took a step back, leaving the key in its place. I was expecting a reaction like this from him, which was why I came here shameless: “I was missing you."“You get into an argument with your husband, and surprisingly, minutes after you remember I exist, you miss me. How sweet!" Seth scoffed. He came up to the door, rem
My mouth was opened at the realization that, from the things Michael explained to me, I had begun sobbing as tears couldn’t stop falling from my eyes.“We pushed our son too hard, and now he has become like this." Michael ended everything he had explained to me; I couldn’t believe it. I remained dumbfounded at the thought that Leo was quietly suffering because of Michael and me, all because we as parents wanted to make sure he was top of the class as always.This added to his anxiety and increased his need to prove to us that he can maintain it. When the spotlight came on our family, we became super greedy about it. It is the sole reason Melissa put William in the same school as Leo to try and make him compete as well.I didn’t know this will cause a reparable damage to Leo.“Why didn’t you tell me this before, Michael? Is that why he fainted the other day,” I screamed at the top of my voice knowing that the possibilities of that being through was already over the bar given Michael’s e
LEO POVI was losing it completely. Everything about Rocky that I had known was slowly going away, and his mother has been bent on keeping us apart. All of a sudden, Rocky’s mother doesn’t want me to tutor him again. It was all suspicious; it made no actual sense.When my mother came in the evening after she had taken away my devices, she soon broke the news that Louisa, her friend and Rock’'s mother, had decided that Rocky would study on his own from now on.“What is going through your mind, Leo?” Sasha asked as she sat beside me at the dinner table.“He is probably thinking about his exams,” Mother answered from opposite us. I side-glared at her and took my eyes away when our food was being served.The Levines’s had come visiting for a diner today, so this was just me spending my time away in a place I felt suffocated in.I shuddered at Sasha’s light touch on my hand as she said, “Don’t think much of it; you are going to do great,” after which she rested her head on my shoulders.“Hm
I laid down on my bed thinking of how I had missed so many signs about everything. Was I just focusing so much on Seth lately that I had forgotten about my own kids? This is very impossible because I do make time for everybody and I leave out myself sometimes, so what could exactly have warranted me not to look in deeper? If I did, then all these problems would have easily been averted.As I thought deeper, it soon crossed my mind: "Melissa!" I sounded her name off because it got Michael's attention, who was just preparing to leave the mayor's office again today."Did something happen?" Michael asked out of concern."No, nothing at all; I just remembered something, but it isn't that important." I said, but I lied. This was important. I remembered Melissa's face when I mentioned something about Rocky and Leo's recent closeness. I believe it was during Patricia's housewarming party. It was then.I can vividly remember how she reacted; it was as if she knew something about it.Now I don't
I thought it was all over, but I was slowly losing myself. I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that, may son, oh god no. I needed an excuse to put Leo in check, one that wouldn't make him suspect that I knew about him and Rocky while still drifting them apart.I had to, for the sake of Michael as well. I wonder how he would react if he finds out. I am sure, just like me, he would try to separate them. I can't even let him know."Please let me put Carmela to sleep; she requested it," Vanessa said as we stood at the passageway between Carmela and Leo's room."I have no problem with that, Vanessa; there is no need to ask even," I say to her while she knocks on Carmela's door. I wait till she has gotten in before I knock on Leo's.Leo was still in his suit, unlike Carmela, who had changed. "Mum," Leo said as he opened the door. I didn't even bother to look at his face because I was plainly disgusted. "Mum, is there a problem?""None, dear," I say while having my hands on his laptop. "W
I shouldn't think about it much; Leo is going through a phase and will get past it if I handle this correctly. I wiped my sweaty hands on my clothes as I went outside and approached Seth. "I need the keys," I requested.He was puzzled, and I feel he wanted to ask me what for but just gave it to me either way. I collected it and quickly sat in the car, turning on the engine. I inhaled and exhaled multiple times, trying not to use my emotions while driving, as it would have plausible damage.Still, I couldn't get it out of my mind that my son was part of that community.I drove over to Louisa's place, which wasn't that much of a drive from the hall; her security didn't do much checking as they allowed me in clearly because they knew who I was. As I stepped out of the car, the anger that I had suppressed a while ago had come to overpower me.I walked into her house, clearly ready for a fight and to challenge her as she deserved. Louisa had no clue what I was here for, and she welcomed me.
Seth and I were no longer on talking terms; it was just that I could see him, but he continued to maintain his distance and only did things that his job required of him. It was that serious and hard to ignore, but I tried because maybe this is what we both need—space.I did watch him from my window whenever Michael wasn't around. I was confused as to how I felt for him. Maybe I have ruined his life by wanting to be with him back then, which was what brought us to this point.Thinking back now, we never actually had any real conversation except for the ones we shared on the bed, and it was just about us giving space to our partners, of which he kept his end of the bargain despite giving me troubles at the beginning. I, on the other hand, who thought I could hold back Michael from me, ended up pushing our relationship outwards.Maybe I was the one who caused the rift; maybe I did confuse Seth...My thoughts were interrupted by the arrival of Vanessa, as I quickly jumped and went down to
Everything happened so quickly that I was hazed out of reality until he kissed my bosom, which he had been staring out at for a long time. I couldn't blame him; my breast did come off as tempting, shooting off from my bra, and my dress tightened it to make a perfect, delectable shape.I watched in sweet horror as he relieved me of the tightness of my dress, revealing my breasts to him, which were shielded by a see-through white bra that covered nothing. My nipples suddenly craved his touch.I bit my lips at how anger has quickly changed into pleasure. I wanted him so badly, and the thought of how many questions will be asked or the rumors flying right now as to what I was doing here only added to how insane what he was doing to me was."Seth, we need to talk," I say, trying to stand my ground even though every part of my body was giving up."Talk about what?" He asked, his eyes lifted up to look at me. "Talk about what Scarlett," he whispered in my ears, and I closed my ears at the sof
