Agustin DeLuca looked at the photos infront of him, rage burning through his veins, as he watched his wife in someone else's arms.~~~~He was one of the most renowned businessman of the country, know for his ruthlessnes and arrogance. He prided himself for being good at reading people like an open book, he thought nothing goes unseen from his scrutinizing eyes, yet the irony, he couldn't see the truth of his own wife when innocence was written all over her face, vulnerability swirling in her doe eyes, silently begging for him to believe her.He lost everything that mattered to him two years back, because he chose to trust the wrong person, but now that he knows the truth, there is nothing he won't do to get her back, nothing.'Get ready Onika DeLuca , I am coming,' he said to himself, determination shining in his orbs, holding a dark promise.~~~~"I promise you, the face I remember before dying will be yours, the last thing I will wish to see will be you, whether it is today, tomorrow or fifty years from now.It will always be you, Onika".-Agustin DeLuca.View More
Four Years Later~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Third Person's Pov....Agustin DeLuca looked at the six years old bundle of joy infront of him, playing with her Uncle Jack.Iris DeLuca.Iris, the only source of peace in his otherwise turbulent life.A small gentle smile played on Agustin's lips, contrasting to his otherwise roughened features, the one which was only reserved for this tiny little creature whose soft giggles vibrated through the walls of his heart as he looked at her with pure awe and admiration in his eyes.He adopted her two years after Onika left, those two years were hard on him. Making peace with his demons.With the truth.The truth that tore his whole world apart, leaving him with a constant ache in his chest. Leaving him vulnerable. Leaving him dead inside.
Few Days Later....Agustin slowly got down on his knees and rubbed the top of his daughter's grave with his palm, ever so slowly as if touching something very fragile, as if brushing off some imaginary dust which might have found its way to his precious daughter's grave, almost in the same fashion as he would pat the head of his child if she were alive.He did it again, and again... and again, the motion becoming vigorous with every passing second, with every stroke, in a state of trance, he kept doing it till his hands were completely tired and he can't move it anymore. He stopped and looked at his palms it was a deep shade of red, he furrowed his brows as he realised he can't feel anything.Taking a shaky breath, he took out the orchids and placed it over the top of the cemetery, with the same frailness and tenderness as someone would show while dealing with their most loved possession, most precious poss
Onika's Pov....I looked at the divorce papers infront of me."I have signed the papers, your turn" Agustin said, his voice surprisingly void of any emotion.That was quick, Agustin was discharged from the hospital yesterday itself, though I was still unsure of what will be Agustin's decision, he could be so unpredictable that I won't ever bet on anything when it comes to Agustin, but somewhere I kind of knew this is what he will do, or at least I prayed, what I didn't expect was he will be this quick to take the decision.So this was the moment I have been waiting for, I am just a signature away and every thing will be over.I eyed the papers for too long as if expecting it to vanish in thin air."You can read the papers before signing," he said, mistaking my lack of response with with my lack of trust."Of course," I said.
Agustin's Pov...."Take legal action against me, I am ready to confess my crimes, Every. Single. One. Of. Them" I said sternly, even though I don't feel even legal actions will be enough, nothing is enough anymore, but that can be a start.Her lips parted in disbelief and she kept looking at me incredulously."Prove it Onika." I repeated again, I want this, I need this, desperately.She recovered from her shock.Her nose flared, breathing quickened, she closed her eyes forcefully, clenching her fist to her sides and before I can blink she slapped me, slapped me so hard my head turned to the other side."Are you trying to mock me?" She said."Is it still me who needs to prove things to you?" She sneered through gritted teeth, her eyes flushing with anger."How fucking dare you?" She clenched her teeth, I have very rare
Onika's POV...I stared at Agustin's pale figure laying on the hospital bed, IV line attached to his wrist, his eyes closed, a small frown on his forehead. Even with his eyes closed he looked troubled. I took few calming breaths to remind myself that he is fine now. I have been sitting beside his bed since past five hours now, and he haven't moved a muscle.He is looking so lifeless at the moment....my heart cringed at the thought. I think this is why Jacob didn't take me with him, he already knew how it's going to be. Thank God Jacob reached there on time, if not for him... I don't even want to think about it.I have never wanted something so desperately as I want for him to open his hazel eyes and look back at me. I brought my hand to his cheek, tracing a large bruise at the side of his cheek with my finger ever so lightly. He didn't flinch, didn't moan in pain, nothing.I know I should have been t
Third Person....Agustin De Luca was driving the car through the eerie silent, dark night, not aware where he was going, but he did have one place in his mind. Tears streaming down his face, feeling guilt so profound that his whole body was shaking with silent sobs, for he had killed not only the soul of the women he loved, but also his own daughter.Sickening sounds reverberating in his head.'You were pregnant--''It was a girl--''The report said there were marks of abuse all over your body--''Please stop''--It said you can never get pregnant again due to complications.''Don't.... please don't.''Congratulations Agustin Deluca..I am everything you ever wanted me to be.I am ruined.'The car stopped with a screech infront of a boxing club
Jacob's POV...I groaned in frustration at the noise interrupting my sleep, and pulled my pillow over my ear to block the noise. It took me some good time to get oriented and realise, it is past midnight and it's my phone ringing.It's my phone ringing?!I immediately woke up, my eyes wide open now, the first thought coming to my mind, Onika.I looked at the screen, it was Onika indeed, at this time of the night? My heart got caught in my throat, as different types of unpleasant thoughts started coming to my mind.I immediately picked the call."He--hello Ja--Jacob Ag--Agustin--" she started sobbing and her voice was completely hoarse as if she had cried her eyes out, I was not able to understand anything clearly."Agustin what Onika? please speak clearly I am not able to understand anything, did Agustin hurt you?"I clenched my fist tightly, waiting for her answer, holding my breath. I was already making my way towards m
Onika's POV...I came back home and directly went to check on Alex. After making sure he was sleeping peacefully, I made my way towards my room.My head hurts, my heart hurts, Jacob's face keeps flashing infront of me, his pained express, his troubled eyes, like had went through a series of endless torture.....all because of me. I can't wash away the guilt that is painfully squeezing my heart.Jacob went through all that pain, why didn't he ever tell me anything before?He went through hell, what for, so that Agustin stays happy. Huh.The irony of the situation suddenly hit me like a hammer, Can I even blame Jacob? Isn't that what I did as well, and the worst part is Agustin can still make me feel bad for him, like he is also a victim in all this, may be he is, as much as I would love to blame everything on Agustin somewhere I know he is hurt as well, one can't expect his
Agustin's POV.....It's been two hour since I told Kane to investigate into the matter, no call nothing, what is taking him so long?I was restlessly pacing around my room, any bit of sound had me running for my phone, my heart was about to come out of my rid cage.I eyed Onika's file, suspiciously. Maybe she might have mentioned something in her later entries. I took the file and opened it with shaky hands...........................................................# Day 30You remember Agustin once you looked right into my eyes and asked me, 'Was your love not enough for me that I betrayed you the first chance I got?'One beat, two beat, three beat and I don't know how many beats passed and I just kept staring at you, letting it sink into my head what you ju
