I had just completed my bath and put my robe on when a knock on my door caught my attention as I started drying my hair with a towel. "I cooked something for you," Daphne uttered when she appeared behind doors. "I'm not hungry-" She cut me off, proceeding inside. "You have to eat. It's bad to sleep with an empty stomach. You may have a nightmare. Do you want that?" Chuckling as she tried to scare me. She knows how I hate having bad dreams. "So, how's your intimate day with my brother?" I asked, as I was dead curious about what happened. "Good." Shortly, she replied, settling herself on the edge of the bed. "Come. I'll feed you." Damn! You don't have to do that, Daphne. I can fitly manage myself. "The whole time spending with your brother, you are all in my mind." "And why is that?" I couldn't help but ask."I don't know. Perhaps I am used to it." "Of thinking about me?" I connected to her words. Undeniably, I kind of like what I'm hearing from her. [DAPHNE YILDIZ WHITE]I'm h
[CARA WHITE]I am again in a bar, having a moment with booze in my hand. If my liver could only speak, perhaps it may be yelling at me already.My mind speaks against my heart. My heart says to go and fight for Daphne, while my head says otherwise. Why can't they agree on one thing for a break? So I could ease myself from floundering like shit. "I knew it. You are drinking again, Cara. What do you get after this? A headache? or heartache? What?" "What do you want, Kazzy? Didn't I successfully close the deal earlier? How did you find me?" "I set a tracking app on your phone, dumbass." She said, laughing, which made me smirk at her. "What? The hell you're doing that?" I asked in disbelief. "I already did, Cara. You.. What are you doing to yourself? Why not just be honest and talk to her? Say whatever is inside your heart." "And then what? Easy for you to say it 'cause you are not in my position." I fired back after a sip of my drink. "At least you did something rather than not do
[CARA WHITE]When I woke up, I was already in bed without knowing how I ended up here. I was holding my head as I was about to open my eyes. Shit! Did I drink that much last night? My head hurts, but my heart breaks even more. I'm sure I love Daphne, but we don't feel the same way. My thoughts were interrupted when my phone rang. It was Kazzy, maybe it's essential, so I answered. "Hello-" I wasn't even finished when she excitedly greeted me with news. "You won't believe it, but someone wants to invest in our company!" There is a trace of satisfaction in her voice. I am very grateful to Kazzy because our hardships have paid off in the company we built. All my efforts are for Craig. So that he can be free to love whoever he wants and not have to follow our parents' will. Even if we lose everything, my company will sustain us. I even proved that I was doing the right thing when I found out that I was the reason why he couldn't give up our inheritance. The company has no value t
Many days had passed like a breeze without seeing Cara. As time went on, I couldn't bear to be without her presence, so I thought of going to her office, to pay her a surprise visit. I was walking in the hallway and was about to open her office door when I was stopped. She was with another woman. It's not Kazzy because I know her voice anyway. Perhaps her assistant or whoever. I didn't think about it anymore and just went in."What's happening?" Suddenly, my heart beat faster when I saw someone sitting on her lap. They stood up together, but the image of their previous position was left in my mind. "What are you doing here, Daphne?" I can't speak suddenly. It was as if something blocked my throat. My chest is tense up. I don't like how I feel. "Nothing in particular.. I just brought you lunch. I barely see you at the mansion, so I thought of coming here. Alright, I'm leaving." I quickly turned around after placing what I was holding on her table because my tears were about to fa
"The fuck! You are going, Cara." Kazzy yelled at my back after I said to Daphne that I'd be home, just give me a half hour, and don't sleep yet. "I'm sorry, Kazzy, but I have to go. She's sick." I explained, walking inside to grab my things. "Sorry for your damn self, Cara. And please.. She won't die. It's just a simple sickness. Oh Gosh!" I just threw her a 'my decision is final.' look. "I love her. I will always put her on top of my priorities." Before I turned my back to her, I saw her sympathetic face as if saying that tonight was my funeral. When I reached home, I went directly to my room. Abruptly, I come closer to the woman who's lying in the bed. "Hey... Are you alright? Did you drink your medicine already? Since when have you been vomiting? Did you consult the doctor already? What did they say?" Non-stop, I murmured as I sat beside her after she lifted to tend me, leaning on the headboard. She did not say any words and slowly caressed my cheek. Her eyes were red,
From the stairs, I already smelled the aroma of something that was definitely coming from the kitchen as I got to see the dining still empty. I walk through it, following what my nose lingers with. "Good morning." I heard her greet me without even paying gaze on me. How did she sense my presence as I stepped soundless? "G-good morning," I respond, stuttering. I can see that she's in the mood, literally not sick at all. What a trap, Daphne. You, indeed, know how to tame me. Lucky for you.. What bad luck for me. I was taken aback when she suddenly turned around, facing me while holding a spoon. "Taste it, Cara." Hesitantly, I still obeyed her, opening my mouth. I swallow and lick. "Not bad." Her brows wrinkled in awe. "You don't like it?" I just hissed, turning my back on her. Everything about her... I don't just like it. I love it, except for her mixed signals. Her confusing motif, actions, and behavior.Before I could go far away, she already stood in front of me. "Tell me
[DAPHNE YILDIZ WHITE]We just finished our two classes, and we are now heading to the cafeteria. While walking, my mind was too preoccupied. It's been two days since Cara unleashed her true feelings towards me, loving me romantically, in exactly fine words. It's just a simple fact, yet it seems like a storm that literally washed the hell out of me. Suddenly, my world had gone wild enough to sabotage my sanity continuously. I'm so fucking confused about what to feel anymore. What exactly is inside my chest? Is this just a phase that, as days go by, it will all pass? The day Zammy asked Cara if she likes me and I found out that I was only a responsibility and obligation to Cara, I felt bad. Now that Cara said she loves me, I still can't get what my heart really yearns for.This is fucking fucked up damn shit.... "What's with the long face, Daph?" Bridgette's brows knitted as we settled in our seats. The noise surrounding us was like nothing, as chaos ran through my whole being. "
[DAPHNE YILDIZ WHITE]"Let me help you," I said, not heeding her words that seemed like a knife that could easily make me bleed. "Stop, Daphne! Just... Just go away. Get out!" She struggled with my touch. "Alright. Alright. I'll leave you alone after this." I just want to help her change and feel comfortable so she can go to sleep. "You are not listening, Daphne. I said leave!" She pointed to the door out. I gulp and freeze on my stand. This is the first time Cara has driven me away. She must be distraught by me. I couldn't do anything but follow her because I was already feeling pain from her sudden treatment. THE FOLLOWING DAY..When I left my room, Cara was also on her way out, which led us to bump into each other for not looking. We both couldn't utter a word when our eyes met. Cara came closer to me, and before I figured it, we were already in each other's arms, kissing. It's my 2nd kiss, but Cara is the first girl I ever kiss. But why are we in this fanciful?! And why I
