Skyler looked down feeling a little ashamed. He doesn't know what made him admit what he just did. His childhood has not been a normal one and diving into the horrors that shaped his childhood was not the way he wanted to start this date. He braced himself and looked up at Adriana who was gawking at him as if he has several heads. Guess it is a foreign notion to have someone who has never tasted ice cream before in his life. Ice cream was one of the sinful pleasures of childhood that every kid had indulged in, every kid except him. His mother had been a healthy diet fanatic who couldn't stand her only child eating anything that wasn't healthy. Ice cream was one of the little things she denied him growing up. " Can you pretend you didn't just hear that? " he requested. His tone was part pleading and part serious. He wasn't ready to answer the questions that he was sure to follow. Adriana started to shake her head at Skyler's request. He can't just dump such a huge bomb on her and
You can never go wrong with ice creamAdriana was a nervous wreck. Today is D day of her date with Skyler. After the shamble that was their first date, this was giving her jitters. She had not been able to sleep a wink as her thoughts roamed around her date with Skyler. Even before the sun kissed the sky she was already up and heading towards her kitchen for a much-needed wake-up call of her coffee shot. Now she was fully dressed and ready. A nervous look at her wristwatch revealed that she was a few minutes late. They had made arrangements for her to pick Skyler up at nine am but her watch told her she was five minutes late. It must be a curse or something that no matter how early she starts she always ends up late. She sped out of her house like it was on fire. This date she was determined to make it memorable to wipe out the bad memories of their first date and already she was off to a bad start. She wasn't looking forward to that superior frown that is sure to be on Skyler'
Adriana barely tasted her dinner and when she arrived home she still couldn't forget. She kept visualizing Skyler with the brunette and the smile on his face. The more she thought about them the more restless she grew. When she couldn't take the disturbing thoughts anymore she came down from her bed and went to the kitchen where she took out a bottle of half-opened Brandy and a wine glass and went to her kitchen table and sat down. She poured a little into the glass and drowned it and then another and another and only stopped at the third glass. The burning drink in her system still couldn't help with her troubling thoughts. She stood to her feet and began to pace around her kitchen with another glass in hand. Why can't I stop thinking about him? She wondered in annoyance walking from one end to another. She wasn't like this. Has never been this hung up on a guy before. " What are you doing to me, Skyler, " she groaned hitting her head on the wall. She kept hitting her head tryin
The restaurant Daniela picked was a popular one in the city and as usual most of the seats were filled with Patrons. Their entrance barely sparked any curiosity in the people inside who were more focused on their meals and conversing with their dinner mates. The table arrangements had four, three and two seats so they went for the three table seat arrangements since they were waiting for another person. Being a gentleman he is, Skyler pulled out a chair for Daniela before taking his seat. When they sat down Daniela quickly picked up the menu on the table to keep herself occupied. Honestly, she felt a little nervous around Skyler. " Are we ordering now or waiting for your girlfriend? " Skyler asked looking in her direction from above his menu. " Fiancee, and yes we are waiting that is if you don't mind? She will join us in the next... Daniela looked at the slim golden chain watch on her slender wrist... ten minutes. "" Oh, I don't mind. Maybe we can have some drinks and you can t
The beautiful bright Monday morning sun found Skyler behind his desk head over his laptop working. He had a stern and concentrated look on his face as his slender long fingers moved intermittently on his laptop. This strong concentration was interrupted by the ringing of the intercom on his desk. It was the reception desk downstairs in the lobby calling.His brows furrowed into two frowny lines, and a look of displeasure appeared on his face. Skyler hated being interrupted when he is working. He glared at the intercom like it was its fault for ringing before he picked it up. " Hello, " his deep smooth voice resonated through the telephone" Mr. Rivers, there is a woman here to see you but she doesn't have an appointment, " a syrupy female voice answered on the other end. Skyler's brow wrinkled. Who could this woman be? His heart leaped from his chest to his throat when he imagined who it could be. Is she here? Does that mean she regrets what she has done and has come to apolog
" Do you like him? "Adriana's heart skipped in her chest at her mother's question. " I don't know mum? " she whispered with the vulnerability of a child seeking guidance from her parent." Well, I have to say he is hot and I don't blame you if you do. "" Mum! " Adriana screeched feeling a little mortified on her mother's behalf. " Hey! old, not blind, " the older woman defended" How did you even know what he looks like? "" There is something called the internet. I asked google. " Adriana laughed again before letting out a sighShe was lost on what to do about Skyler. Her sigh was a lot of words to the woman on the other side who knows her child so well.She will not be this disturbed if she didn't like the young man in question. She had called to tell her daughter not to go through with whatever her husband had her involved in. She was not going to sit back and watch her husband push their child into marrying someone she doesn't love, but from what is happening right now it mi
" Why didn't you let me finish off back there? I knew you were very horny. "Adriana stumbled as her face burned. She didn't want to look in a mirror right now because God knows she will be wearing the face of ripe tomato fruit. She opened her mouth to answer severally but nothing came out. She was just too dumbfounded to offer any reasonable words. The woman not receiving any answer stopped suddenly and turned to face Adriana, a hungry look in her eyes. Adriana not expecting her to stop nearly ran into her but caught herself in time. " I am so so... " the words died suddenly in her mouth as she looked to see the woman eyeing her like she was a piece of meat. Adriana felt her heart leap to her throat as she swallowed with difficulty. Everything grew silent because all she could hear was the beating of her heart. " What are you doing? " she gasped out and closed her eyes at how husky and shaky her voice sounded. When she opened it she blinked to find the woman right in front
Inside the cab, Skyler wouldn't stop thinking about the blonde no matter how much he tried and it was pissing him off. He wanted to go straight home and forget that this day happened but at the same time, he didn't want to be alone. His mind seemed to be at an impasse on the decision to make so he just stared out of the window while his cab driver chatted about some celebrity news involving an actor caught cheating on his wife. Skyler craved some quiet but didn't know how to tell the cabby to shut his trap. Being rude is never him so he resigned himself to his incessant chatter. At least the noise from the Cab driver was distracting him from his troubled thoughts. No woman has ever disturbed his mind like the blonde and he didn't like that one bit. The women he has had the misfortune of dealing with are always forgotten before his fifth step away from them. His eyes stared vacantly at the scenery as they passed, the buildings, the shops, and the human beings walking on the pedest
