~LEONA~'oh Leona, you worry for no reason.' I thought and brought my feet down, releasing a sharp breath in relief.In front of me was just Raymond and not who I thought it was."I was scared. I thought there was a thief in here.""Nope. The lights just went off suddenly so I have to go check if everything is okay." He said and walked into the room while dusting his hands." Okay. I almost had a heart attack.""Really? You looked like someone who's scared of something or someone to me though. " He disappeared into his room.I ignored his observation. He was actually right.When I got into my room Leonard was sleeping soundly.I put the things I bought away and went to take a bath.After eating I went to talk to Raymond once and for all but saw him busily studying so in order not to disturb him, I left.We can still talk some other time if Yolando doesn't come then.I walked to my room and tried to call Dave but his line was unreachable.Odd.He didn't call me this evening if not for
~LEONA~That, someone, was no other than Raymond's friend. The one who tried to take advantage of me when he was not around.The bastard Jayden. When his eyes met mine, they grew so wide. I bet he wasn't expecting to see me. And I didn't know my brother was still friends with him."Hey, Leona! You didn't tell me you were coming." Raymond got up and hugged me.He took my luggage inside and rushed back."I missed you." He said and hugged me again."I missed you more." I hugged him tighter."How was the trip?""Great! I finally got to visit Seattle.""I'm glad you did." He held my gaze, smiling at me then taking me in. "You're looking superb as well."" Thanks."Just then Leonard began to cry while pulling the hem of my dress. He wants attention.I bent and picked him up. I brushed my nose against his and he laughed loudly holding my head with his small hands."I missed you, baby."" Missu tuuu." He replied adorably and I couldn't help laughing."What was that Leonard?""Mama" he hit m
~LEONA~He got down from the bed and got his shirt off then proceeded to remove his cotton pants."You should change in the bathroom," I instructed.He ignored me and got his pants off too. He was now stark naked and his ass cheeks were facing my direction.I tried hard not to look as he paraded the room looking for God knows what.I got up from the bed and walked to the bathroom. There was a new set of brush and toothpaste so I took it and brushed my teeth."What's this?" I asked when I saw Dave's big form standing in my way."Nothing."I rolled my eyes, "you're standing in my way.""Oh am I ?" He looked behind him and I pinched his hard stomach, avoiding his abdomen and the ones below."You should stop showing off your body to me. I have no credits to give."" Firstly, there's no other person that I can show off my body to apart from you. Secondly, you don't have to give credits. Your cheeks are giving it by how bright they're getting."My cheeks went redder.I'm blushing too much t
~LEONA~As much as I felt open to Dave, I feel like a part of my burden has been lifted off.I never knew telling him would be this difficult yet simple. I never knew he'd understand easily and give his support.It felt like I didn't just tell him the biggest secret of my life. I thought after telling him I'm going to feel ashamed because he's going to be disgusted in me but no. It was the whole opposite.He accepted everything as if it was not a big deal and he didn't judge me like I thought he would.How did I get this lucky?Even though I know he has given me his word, I know he's going to do his best but I can't relax and leave everything to him.Dave accepting me for who I am is more than enough. That alone is enough and knowing that he's there for me would do. I couldn't ask for more."So what's next?" I yawned." Let's sleep but first lemme clean your wound."I nod and we walked back to the washroom where he cleaned the wound neatly.He knows how to handle injuries perfectly.
~LEONA~" Listen, enough of your jokes. I'm being serious here and the one in question is no ordinary person."" Do I look like I'm joking?"" Then what are you saying? Where do you know him from and how are you related to him? I never mentioned his name so how did you know him?"" You worry too much, Leona. You should know by now the person you claim you're working with. Yes, he's no ordinary person and he's very dangerous. I got to know when I encountered him."" How did you encounter him? Have you worked for him before?" I got up from where I knelt." No. That's ridiculous. He tried to defame me in the past because he was paid by a competitor of mine. That was how I got to know him for the first time. After the case was resolved I never saw him again but I couldn't have forgotten him so soon."" You must have a sharp memory to still have his name." I was still not convinced.There's something amidst. "Forget about that Leona, the fact is I know the man who's giving you a hard time
~LEONA~I paused to welcome any reactions from him and when none came, I moved my gaze to his face.His face was neutral as if he didn't hear what I said but he did.I went on..." After completion of college, a lot of things happened which caused my family to abandon me: I mysteriously got pregnant; something I never planned and no one was expecting. It was unexpected, for me and for everyone. My stepmom especially got furious because I was supposed to finish college first then find a job and take care of my younger siblings. If only I knew how I got pregnant and who I got pregnant for, then things would've been a bit simpler because then I will be able to give reasonable explanations to the questions which were demanded. But I didn't even know how I managed to get pregnant but when I thought I got a clue to how I got pregnant, the nurse denied everything and provided evidence to back her claim. I accepted the idea that maybe I was induced with a sedative and raped or something. Or
59~LEONA~I rushed after him when he left the balcony. He walked into his room and banged the door then I heard him locking it.I just hope he's not mad at me.I got into my room and lied down but couldn't sleep. I felt restless and that's not because I have Lando hot on my tail but because there was a man next door who didn't seem okay.I yearned to know how he's fairing and what he's doing now.I got up and walked to the door that connects our rooms. I turned the knob but it was static.He locked this door too? Why would he?"Dave," I called and hit my foot against the door."Dave?" No response."Dave please open up. Are you okay?"No response."Dave? Dave I'm sorry. " I knocked harder." Please open.. "The door suddenly opened and there he stood in all his glory, jaws clenching; I wonder why. Instantly, I hugged him."What is it? Are you okay?" He asked with concern. We disengaged and he scanned my body probably to check if I was hurt. He always cares, even if he is hurting
~ DAVE~"If you interupt me again, I'm done." She warned, glaring at me with those pretty eyes of hers which are now red and swollen from the crying she did. I still don't know what made her cry so much and I'm eager to know." I'm sorry?""Sorry?" She asked and turned to me. "I can't do this anymore."She was shaking her head and her once sorrowful face broke into a large grin."What now?" I asked, puzzled."Forgive me, Dave but you're taking this too far. Why are you being too serious?" She went hysterical." What?" I stared at her, more confused than ever. What's funny?"Look, I was crying because I have phobia for darkness. I'm nyctophobia and I seriously can't deal with it. Gosh, I almost died when I didn't see you so that's why I dressed up to go and you came in. That's it and nothing more."I nodded. " Fine. I understand. I'm sorry for leaving you in the dark. I left for a meeting with the workers. You were sleeping so I didn't wanna wake you up. I just arrived and went to the
