Lisa’s POV “Hello Xander? Chase has been shot! I said immediately I said into the phone.“What? How? When?” Xander asked me. His voice has changed from being rude to worried.I briefed what happened to him. I heard the siren of the ambulance coming. He told me that he would meet us in the hospital and cut the call.“Chase. I called your brother!.” I told Chase. He was already blank out.“Chase! Chase! Please wake up!.” I cried out as I tried to wake him but his eyes were still closed.“Chase please wake up!”. I burst into tears. This is all my fault. The man was obviously after me and Chase ended up being the victim. Heck if I haven’t left the hall, then none of this wouldn’t have happened.“Mam and you move a little bit?.” The medical people asked.I didn't realize they were here already. I moved back and they picked Chase up and took him into the ambulance.“Are you coming with us?.” One of them asked me.“Yes!.” I answered and entered the ambulance.“Can you tell us what happened?.

Although I was in coma for the greater part of it, i dreath everything moment I spend awake here.I was waiting for Ashely to come and sign me out. Talking about Ashley, she has been babying me since I woke up. She won’t allow me to do even the little things myself. On the noms, I will hate what she is doing because I hate having someone take care of me, but right now, I am enjoying every moment of it.I was so impressed with her when Rick told me how she handled Xavier my rival who shot me. I wished they had the whole thing on camera.I wonder why she isn’t here yet. She is supposed to have arrive by now. I have already change
Chase POV It has been three weeks since I last heard from Lisa. These three weeks have been the worst days of my life.I try calling her every day but she nervously picks her phone. When I drop by her house to check on her, Her friend Claire will always inform me that she isn’t around even though I know that it’s a lie.The worst part of everything is how Henry brags about spending time with her whenever we meet. I hate every moment of it.I am also afraid that maybe Lisa has fallen out of love with me and is now in love with Henry. But I refused to believe that. I would not let her go and fight for her no matter what happens. I know she needs space and so I will give that to her.I confided in my brother Xander for some advice on what to do because I don’t want to mess things up with her. Xander had just woken up from a coma. He was shot by a rival gang, luckily enough he survived. Xander advised me that if I really want to settle down with Lisa, then it’s time to let go of Clara a
Lisa’s POV I present to you three weeks of rejected calls, ignored messages and massive loneliness. I know of a person who is nothing but sadness and loneliness and that person is me.There is neither love or light in my life.Yeah, the sun rises but it has been ages since it shone on me.I know, that's how unfortunate I am came think of it, I deserve an award.The award for the biggest hypocrite and liar goes to Lisa. I may seem over Chase but only my pillow and I know the untold tears that explain the longingness in my heart. The distance between us was to make me forget him but it just made me realize that I love this son of a man.I don't know how it happened or when it happened but I love him.If only he would want me as I want him with fire and passion.If only I was never an option.If only he had eyes for me, If only.I felt tears burning behind my eyes but I refrained from crying.I continued whisking the cocoa to remove any lumps so as my chocolate buttercream frosting would be per
Chase’s POV I don't know for what reason but I believe you will come. I might be the biggest as*hole in the universe but you always understand me. In my darkest moment, I think of you. In my sorrows, I need you. Even though it seems hopeless to wait, I still believe.I leaned on the wall beside the door, waiting for her who weirdly knew how to restore my sanity. I take another strong sip of whisky but it doesn't really dull the ache in my chest. Stupid whisky, you were supposed to help me forget this torture for a while if not a while please a few seconds would go a long wayI know she will come. I sighed, biting my trembling lips. Second after second I would check my phone desperately. It was only thirty minutes later and I feel like it's eternity. She will come. She would never want to see me hurt or broken.One hour later, Maybe she is just stuck in traffic. Maybe she decided to walk here . Maybe she took a longer shower today.Maybe the taxi's tyre got punctured. Maybe!Maybe!Maybe
Present time*****"Do you need a hug?" He asked and I nodded wordlessly. He caged me into his strong arms and squeezed me a little tighter...I rested my head on his shoulder fighting hard the tears that were making my eyes pepperish."You can just let it all out..."Just what I wanted to hear.I sobbed profusely for what seemed like eternity and all he did was rub my back soothingly. Even though you have hurt me in the past, I can't stand the fact that I bruised your ego...I hope Ian is right and this torture is worth it...I rather die than see your hurt.That's how much you mean to me.That's it Lisa. He is not worth all those tears you have shed."I guess I am already dehydrated..." I pulled back and he handed me his handkerchief."I don't mind if you feel you still want to let it all out...""I am sorry that your denim jacket is all stained with my tears...""I don't mind as long as you are okay...""Let me prepare some sandwich, there is some brawn in the fridge. I hope you are as hun
Lisa’s POV I dropped on my knees as my dam broke. My tears were uncontrollable. When I met him all I thought was, "Damn it's gonna break me when you leave..." And I was right. Crying is a way your eyes speak when your mouth can't explain how you are feeling inside.Henry knelt in front of me and wrapped me in his arms. I wish they made me feel home like Chase's did but all I could feel was been engaged for comfort. He soothed me and promised everything would be okay, over and over and over again but I doubted it .When he lifted my face to look at him,my sobs increased and no words were courageous enough to leave my lips."He is not worth your tears. If you mean something to him then he will fight for you..." He wiped my tears with his thumbs but they were so stubborn."He is Chase, he will never change Lisa..." He cussed out with so much rage in his voice."Do you think he will choose me?" I asked in a dry hoarse voice."If he really likes you then he will...""I want him too Henry.
