Five years later Though the surgery on Damon was successful, he wasn't responding to treatment. I kept believing that each month my belly grew that he was one step from waking up. Sometimes I would cry on his bed that he does wake up but be honest what has crying ever done, crying didn't bring back my mum and so it was impossible to bring him back. At the ninth month I had camped in his room for several days to see if I monitored him he would wake up and then.... Lest I forget, during those months I was busy trying to get Damon out from his coma, I had actually attended Beatriz hearing. I visited her a day to that and she apologized for all that she had done and told me that she actually liked me for her son but with the deal she had with Alicia couldn't let her love me like she did before. She told me she would confess to everything and take the entire blame but that wasn't what I wanted her to do, so I had ask her to focus on telling the truth.
She was running her own entire wedding in our faces and she was doing pretty good at it. When everyone were very much seated Alicia asked for all of her men to leave as there was no need for them being here since there was no place we could run to."Today is for us, Damon. I hope the ropes aren't too tight on you, you see I would love to release you but I can't trust that you would stay still till our wedding is over" she said softly. "Please carry on"The officiator began with a few passages from the Bible about marriage and how sacred it is.... I could see Alicia getting impatient with him and she gave him an order that he should speed things up."Hey.... Psst" Jeanette called for my attention from the order row. "Aren't you going to do something to stop the wedding? I mean if it was my man getting married to someone else I know that I won't seat still and let her snatch him away from..... Fine I get that we aren't on good terms and believe it I do
Priscilla POVSeeing Beatriz leave in that manner had spiked the room for gossip as silent whispers from the workers could be heard. I slowly slipped out of the living room after Alicia had gone somewhere probably to check on Beatriz, those two really care for each other and Xander had left to search for a good lawyer for his mother.I heard silent sobs coming out of Elizabeth's room as she packed all of her things into her luggage bag. I knew she was heartbroken and had felt bad for all that she had done, but the things she did to Damon was pretty much despicable and I would side with Damon anytime any day if compared.I spent an hour in my room trying to process all that had happened. Would Damon had actually gotten his mother arrested for my sake? If so, how did he know she was the culprit? And if that were to be the case, why wasn't Alicia arrested as well? She is the one who spearheaded the entire mission and now she is walking free like nothing has happened.
Alicia POVThe heel on my stilettos made a sound each step I took on this cold tiled ground. I held my breathe from taking in the stench of all these criminals that were being thrown into jail for some particular period of time.I went straight to the officer who had arrested Beatriz an hour ago or two.... Somewhere there about, was to busy laughing to had even realize the time she was arrested."I'm here to see Mrs Beatriz" I said, flashing those teeth that I had just got whitened for this particular reason.... Smiling actually makes you younger."Mrs Beatriz?" He said lifting a questioning brow, "are you here in place of her family cause I just spoke with Damon and he said none of his family members will be bailing her out, they have even made that clear to the judge""Oh.... I am not here for that at all, infact I am only concerned as to how she is coping, I don't want to go against Damon's wishes" I said as my smile grew wider, I just can't belie
Alicia POVTwo years agoI wept profusely as I got the message of the cancellation of my wedding to Damon. Our wedding was the next day and everybody had already anticipated for this day to come for me, they all knew how much I loved Damon.Though I had no single clue as to what was the cause of the call off I still had expected Damon to had called rather than sending me a text message. The thought of having to send out a message to my invitees about Damon calling off the wedding had me shed tears even more.Despite of all that I was feeling inside I can never hate Damon rather my love for him grew. I knew he had his eyes on someone else that he couldn't reach but still that didn't stop me. I loved him ever since our university days where we both studied a different course but still cross each other's part daily.Our first meeting had brought about "love at first sight" for me. It was like an over used drama scene when a girl is been pushed over by a
I knew it was impossible that Damon gave what was mine to another woman whose job is to crave for his attention and does all she can to get it. But it did make me feel uncomfortable as my eyes didn't leave her hand, I was focused on it so much that I had forgotten what was going on.To be honest I felt betrayed, which is why I calmed myself with a believe that there was a coincidence she had the ring on her finger, she probably would've bought the ring at the same store Damon got his. I should be calm, don't think Priscilla, please don't.Damon turned to Link to get Elizabeth's parents and that Liliana be given to her nanny to watch over for now."Why are you bringing my parent into our problem, this should be settled by the both of us and not them" Elizabeth begged as Damon was adamant on bringing them in despite her plead, "Stop Brett now, please.... Xander! Bloody do something cause your name is on it""What did you say? Whose name is on it? I thought
My heart sank as I dread the day I refused his proposal, my response was going to be yes and then we get married and live happily ever after---- that's the plan. I sobbed harder, resting my back on the wall only to find Jeanette laughing at me. "You must really love Damon.... well he isn't dead but he is back and had requested the presence of everyone"I glared at her as the urge to slap her gripped me, too bad I wasn't the one who got the chance to..... Of all the people in this mansion to play this joke and she chose Damon.Jeanette had called Alicia as she was walking by to tell her the joke she just pulled on me, in no second Alicia's hand met Jeanette's skin. "Never joke on Damon's life like that! If you want to make a silly joke use yourself or anybody but never in your gold digging life utter Damon's name close to the word death" hearing her speak, I had to admit that this was the first time we both share the same thoughts.Alicia looked at me, she saw ho
I stood in awe of the drama Alicia was pulling off quite well. The sympathy from the maids and other solicited spectators, who had cameras rolling, taking in every action Alicia portrayed. I had to admit that her acting was superb, and believe it or not it was Oscar worthy.She threw her hair to the side as she wiped her tears, taking Jeanette hands before adding, "This is my trustworthy friend who has stood with me all through this trying time" hugging Jeanette she went further to add, "Thank you for being there for me"Wasn't it today that I heard Beatriz and her discussing her return? Then how the hell is she back this soon? I really don't like this one bit."Welcome back dear" Beatriz came out to hug her and kissed her forehead. "Regardless of the situation, you will forever be the daughter of this family and for that we the entire Prince family shall host a special homecoming event for you in three days time, first let get you settled" she ordered one of th
