I cleaned our room for hours, though being a new house it was already clean. I had this habit of cleaning stuff when I was depressed.
Yes, I am depressed.
That's because my husband is having an affair. Just kidding. He is my fake husband if that term even exists. And he married me to have an affair!
Can it get anymore dramatic?
Oh yes. I am his best friend who has been in love with him for fifteen years when I should be using this time to get over him.
I patted the sofa, dusted the shelves and put my books in a row. I am a bibliophile and a strong one at that. Sherlock Holmes and Augustus Dupi
Emily's POV:I felt horrible and disgusting. I closed my ears, trying to stuff a pillow but to no vain. Man, Edward really had some balls to have sex with Lara when I was in the next room. The walls were much of a negative soundproof than I could ever comprehend.I closed my eyes, trying to sleep but Lara was moaning literally loud. I had to bite my lips to stop myself from shouting at her. I knew Edward was experienced in this field but did she really need to make it this obvious.Damn her!I sighed. It was always there, that hopelessness. It came and went but never left me.I had always been a happy-go-lucky girl, some called me goody two shoes, some tomboy, some nerd
Emily's POV:Man, we were about to get a huge fight today. Who should I cheer?"For what did you want to apologize? Because I assure you I have a long list of scars still deprived of your apologies, " Mia said, walking like a tiger on his hunt: slow and impatient. For a moment, I thought that she would spill her feelings right then and there."Mia, listen, I know I was a jerk-" Jake started."Oh. So now Mr Playboy realises it. That's good. Now I can die in peace, " Mia said sarcastically, tears still evident in her eyes."Yes. I am a jerk and I will always be. I don't know why. You of all people know me best, " Jake looked at her, guilt present in his eyes. He looked do
Emily's POV:Pretending to love him was never tough for me. With a genuine smile on my face, a slight flush of cheeks, the? rigorous beating of heart, sweatiness of palm, butterflies in the stomach or the stuttering of my tongue, I was familiar with all types of symptoms of love.Because I had experienced all of them. In mere twenty years.Edward's parents came to visit us, giving us the wedding gift for our honeymoon. Bam!What had they given us? Tickets to a seven days trip to Mauritius. Sounds dreamy right? Well, it ain't any dream, I am telling ya!I was happy; a little trip could warm up my insides. Some fresh air was necessary to ease up my very disturbed mind. Ed
Emily's POV:I woke up early, my legs entangled with Edward's, his arms scooping me up till our cheeks were touching. I gasped, feeling something poking on my lower stomach. I put hands on my mouth from making any sort of noise.I knew very well what it was, I was once a medical student for Merlin's sake!I tried to remove his hands, my fingers grabbing his arms carefully to his side only to sigh in vain. He scooped me closer instead, his hot breath fanning my neck, tickling my senses and producing goosebumps on my arms. I tried to wriggle again after several attempts going in vain, I huffed."Edward, I am being suffocated, can you move a little?" I whispered."Mmm, " h
Mia's Pov:I was getting tensed with the progress of time. He wasn't showing any progress in his health, his forehead still burning as hot as lava.I took a wet strip of cloth, dripping from the bowl, squeezed it and placed it on his forehead. His porridge was turning cold but he wasn't eating it, saying his throat hurt."Jake, you gotta eat it otherwise I will be having trouble feeding you the medicines. They won't work on an empty stomach, " I said, caressing his hair. He made no sound of approval, his nose was all red from sneezing, his skin pale with fever and cold. I let him sleep. What else can I do besides nursing him?I went to his kitchen, placed the porridge on the counter, covering it before going back to his room. His roo
Mia's Pov:I was preparing myself another cup of tea, as Jake refused to let me go alone to my house which was just ten blocks away!He was crazy! Totally crazy!I sipped the last drop before entering the washroom to take a shower, taking my clothes which Jake went to take from my house. He actually refused me smoothly not to even walk outside his house when I was without my bra!I couldn't even imagine what else he must have seen when ransacking my closet, my girl stuff mustn't have gone unnoticed by his view!I kicked the shower water in the air to ease my pent up my frustration. I almost slipped, a scream escaping my mouth before I gripped tap to mobilise myself. I s
Mia's POV:I woke up to the sound of something crashing on the floor. I hurried to Jake's room, too afraid to check my own."Are you okay? Did you fall?" I asked, worried about him. "I told you not to walk two steps out of that fucking bed of yours and you- AH!" I cried, instantly groaning in pain when my legs landed on something sharp. I sat on the floor with pain, water seeping into fibres of my jeans."Don't come here, Mia! I think I broke-what the hell! You stepped on the broken glass vase!" Jake said, hurrying towards me cautiously, immediately pulling me upwards by arms to make me sit on his bed.He looked at me, his eyes red, indicating his lack of sleep, gripping my legs to put them on his lap.
Mia's Pov:I was devastated. No, that shit was not happening with me. His company was way more precious to me than my own feelings, which he had been crushing since the day I met him.I quickly told dad I would call him later and cut the line.Ignoring my own pain, I ran towards Jake, grabbing his hands which were red from the hot coffee which was spilt over them just minutes ago. I blew air on his burning hand, making sure not to touch it when he pushed me not-so-gently."Don't touch me! I don't want anyone's help!" he growled at me, prying me off even far away from him. I stared at him, my eyes welling with tears. I quickly wiped them off with the back of my palm.Wha
