Amelia’s POVEddie's words rang over and over again in my mind on the way back to the hospital. I stared with unseeing eyes at the passing scenery through the window of the cab, my heart beating painfully in my chest.He had broken up with me so cruelly. Did he think one measly apology in a restaurant would resolve that?I scoffed inwardly and tried to convince myself that what I was feeling at that moment was just anger and distaste at Eddie's actions, and not sorrow and regret for what could have been. The cab driver turned on the radio and music immediately began playing. I immediately recognised the song as 'Lover' by Taylor Swift. Tears began to burn in my eyes as the song brought back memories of when Eddie and I had been in love and feeling on top of the world. I immediately had a flashback.(Flashback)'Babe?'I was staring at the screen of my laptop, frustrated by my brain's stubbornness. I had a paper due soon and no matter what I did or wrote, it did not seem enough to me.
Amelia’s POVLet’s meet at 5:00p.m at Midvale Restaurant. Is that fine by you?I woke up and saw Eddie’s message immediately when I was awake but I ignored it. I thought about replying immediately, but I hurriedly put my phone down on the bed the very moment I opened the keyboard. I refuse to be that silly Amelia who once always replied immediately and always put him first. Besides, he is nothing to me now, just a troublesome client that I have to deal with. I took a deep breath and continued, as I tried to mentally prepare myself for the day and what was to come. You are strong, you are professional, you are hardworking, you will surely get there and things will be fine. Your mom will be fine, your career will be fine and you will even treat Eddie with nothing but professional respect. And after this, you will be free of him and certainly glad to be. You've got this, Amelia!I got up from my bed and began to carry out my morning routines, journaling and a little bit of yoga, wishin
Eddie’s POVI stared at the clothes for a while, nervously hoping they would do. As I caught myself straightening another non-existent crease in the shirt I had planned to wear, I chuckled to myself. I had not felt that excited and jittery in so long, specifically six years. The only time I had had such feelings was when Chloe was about to be born. Other than that, my life had been miserably dull and Chloe had been the only light in my dark world.But that will soon come to an end, I assured myself. I continued with my task, chuckling occasionally as I thought of Amelia and the way she had acted towards me that day we met. She was just so adorably cute, and the best thing about that is that she did not even know that she was. My chuckles died down as I thought of how beautiful she was now. Amelia had always been beautiful and while we were still in college, she had that subtle pretty girl next door look. But when I saw her in her boss's office, my first thought had been nothing… My mi
"Serve the meal." James walked into the living room, with Eddie who walked from behind. They would have late lunch, from the look of things, since the meeting at the office took a while. Coupled with other checkups that had not taken place for a while, and should take place.Eddie was mute. What was he to say, anyway? James must have done the interview the perfect way it should be, he knew from the look of things, and a smiling Ma. Rose that the meal would be worth it.He didn't have to show his excitement at the table, at the same time. Mashed potatoes with vegetables was the meal she decided to make from the list. It was on the timetable, besides. Amelia greeted the men, rushed out of sight and returned with clean glasses for water. "How was it, Mr. James?" She questioned the excited man.James, who was unready to hold a conversation, plopped down to one of the seats and turned to face her for a moment. He looked away and faced his plate the next moment, then said, "It went we
"We shall visit the main office today. Get the car ready." Eddie announced on the arrival of his man, James who veered around and left on his order.It was a new week, a chef was yet to be seen as a replacement for the old lady. Eddie was frustrated already, and tired of eating the meal Ma. Rose prepared. "It is ready," James walked back and said to the man, leaving the door again when he was called back. "What has been done about a chef?""I reached out to the woman last week, there was no good response from her.""What woman?" Eddie asked, shutting the system. "What woman does not want to work for me, we pay very well.""Every existing woman wants to work at the mansion. Not Amelia Johnson.""She refused the offer?" He asked James. "Yes." The other man nodded. "I've sent out emails to agencies to see if there is someone that can be released. Male or female.""I want a female for the job, James. I've got a daughter to protect. Speaking of my daughter, where is Chloe?""Ma. Rose got
Realization hit Henry, causing him to sit uprightly on the ward seat. He moped at Amelia, unsure of what to say next."What is it?" She questioned, sitting on the bedside, next to Tonia. "You think I should? After all that has happened."Confused, Henry shook his head and moped again. Amelia, who understood the act, nodded, saying nothing. Her thoughts drifted to why Eddie would want her as his chef, and why his assistant would put a call to him on his behalf.Don't they have chefs in the mansion? A question she forgot to ask James."Think about it," were the last words from him. Would she think about it, even? After the past and silly connection between herself and his boss. Eddie."Do you want to, Amelia?" Henry asked, cutting short her thoughts. "Stark Investments is a huge tech company in the city, and I'm certain Eddie Thompson would pay you well.""He is my ex, Dad," she told him. "This is enough reason to refuse the offer. Whether or not it is huge.""I don't want you going to
The morning sun streamed through Amelia's curtains, giving a warm glow. Reluctantly, she sat up on the bed, said a few words of prayer and made for her bathroom.The plan was not to take a morning bath, not at all. But she would, there was a lot to be done on this day and a hospital to visit before she went job hunting. Henry had advised she started the next day after their discussion, but she had tarried a bit. The agency in Florida did as her father had predicted. It was easy peasy and not as hard as she guessed. "But they fired everyone who breached the contract clauses." She said that evening to herself, grateful to God and her Dad for his suggestion. Who knows? She would have terminated a lifetime deal like that. The electric toothbrush massaged her teeth. Amelia spat into the basin, grabbed her towel and shut the door. Breakfast was to be made and taken to Tonia at the hospital. Her father may not have returned home the night before, she knew from the silence existing in the
James walked into the office, shaking his head. Eddie, who cared less, said nothing to him. Instead, he muttered the words he read from the file on the table to himself. "She resigned," James announced, hitting the door shut. Silently, he wandered through to the table side, moping at his boss—Eddie."What, or who resigned?" The man on the seat raised his head, asking.What, or who? Are there objects working in this house or investment? James made to ask but held back his words on a second thought. It would lead to a fight he wasn't ready for, or get fired when he shouldn't. "James?" Eddie called, not looking up to see the younger man's face. "What happened? Who resigned? And from what job did they resign?""Becca," James answered. "The chef we employed last month. Just last month!""Why?" Eddie asked, almost screaming. "Jesus, we've not paid for her service because it's not the end of the month.""Your policy is something they can't bear, Eddie. I must not tell you, you should kno
Their problems were far from being solved. It seemed so. What was happening? And why now? Frustrated Amelia heaved a sigh, sitting up on the long couch. Several days ago, she met with an ex. A man she would never want to hear from or speak to anymore. Her stomach coiled at the thought of being with him again, and she heaved a sigh once more. The last time she checked, she didn't come down from Florida to meet with Eddie, and now that it happened. She would end it by moving back to Florida and continuing her contract with the agency she works with. But would she go? She doubted. From the look of things, Tonia's health was getting worse, and Henry's payment could not cover the hospital bills. It meant only one thing, Amelia would need to help with the bills. How on earth was that possible?It was the weekend in New York and a free day for Henry. He stayed back in the bedroom with her Mom since she got up from the bed this morning. She had brushed her teeth only, leaving a cold bath
