"It's just for a few hours. Please, help me out." Lilian said. Her voice pleading, her eyes shimmering with unshed tears but she didn't break down in front of a random stranger. "Why would I?" Shane said coldly. Helping a stranger wasn't one of his virtues. "I will pay the price." Lilian said desperately. "Please, do me the favour." Shane stared at the girl standing in front of him. She really didn't seem to know him otherwise she wouldn't have mentioned about paying him. And looking at her, what possibly could she pay him! As if reading his mind, Lilian spoke up, "I will do whatever you ask me to do after this." Shane gave her an impassive expression before he asked, "Do I have your words on this?" "It's a deal." Lilian said not thinking much about what she was binding herself to. She never had a clear sky and was already at the dead end anyway. So, what worse possibly be awaiting her! Little did she know how Shane would be taking her up on that offer!View More
Angel was sleeping peacefully beside Rose. Within just a few hours, both of them got mixed so well. Lilian thought as she stared at them smilingly. She tossed on the bed for hours but didn't get to fall asleep. Not wishing to disturb their sleep, Lilian got down from the bed. After properly setting the comforter on them, she walked out of the room. She closed the door behind her trying to make less of a sound. Thinking of what to do, she headed for the pool just like she used to do when she lived here. But instead of walking in the garden, she sat by the pool putting her legs into the water. She shivered feeling cold at first but she sat still. As she stared at the water of the pool, her whole life started flashing in front of her eyes and then there was just Angel. And now Shane. The smiling face of Shane appeared into the water. She smiled back but it got vanished when his voice came as well, "What are you doing here without sleeping?" making her realize he was there for real.
Seeing Lilian silent, Shane asked again without breaking eye contact, "Answer me. Have you ever regretted it?"His tension mounted higher, the longer Lilian kept her mouth shut."I am asking you something. Have you?" Shane asked, desperate to get an answer."No. I haven't. Ever. Because I loved you as well. I was just afraid thinking it was one-sided." Lilian spoke up, her voice a little louder as if she was trying to hold it within but couldn’t. Shane also got silent hearing her. His heart started beating faster as the realization dawned upon him.Just because of their gap in communication, all this happened. They had already wasted so much time. So, though he was still angry with Lilian for many things, he couldn't ignore the fact that somewhere he was at fault as well.So, without grieving on the past that couldn't be changed, he would like to start afresh. He didn't want Angel to go through any family trouble. She already had enough of this.Shane cupped Lilian's face as he spoke
"Shane, I know my words will be counted as meaningless now. I am late for years anyway but I am sorry. Please don't snatch Angel from me. I have none except for her and I won't be able to live without her." Lilian pleaded finding Shane silent."Would you ever consider me in your equation?" Shane asked, his voice lacing with mixed of emotions. Why couldn't she just think of them together in a picture? Just like Angel who went on painting a happy family as soon as she found out about him.He didn't know what he would have done if Lilian had told him but for sure he would have liked to be given a chance to say his words at the very least. And somewhere in his heart, he knew he would have been happy and gladly accepted her. Only if she had just made it to speak to him, he would have been with her all the time. He wouldn’t have missed the time when Angel was growing inside her. The time must had been hard enough for her to handle alone but she chose it for her. She chose to deprive him f
Thoughtlessly Shane walked ahead and then hopped in his car. But before revving the engine, he didn't know where to go actually. He called Lilian only to get his calls ignored. Well, it wasn’t for the first time, his calls were always ignored by her. Shane thought sadly.He was tired, his body demanding some rest but in no way his mind was up for that. He didn't know where did Lilian go nor did he know what actually was going on in her mind. A scary thought was bugging him but he didn’t entertain that.Instead, he guessed she might have gone behind Aiden. It seemed pretty considerable. He was her cousin and Aiden went being angry with her. And he knew how much he meant to her. Well, every one meant to her something except for him.She wasn't even ready to leave Vina alone in Manhattan. She seemed so concerned for her. But she didn't bother to think about him before disappearing from his life. Now she was most probably thinking of doing the same.No, Angel was in the picture. Being a m
"You got to be kidding us. What are you even saying? Your daughter?" Julian asked bewildered.Nathaniel stared at Shane before he turned to Angel and then again at Shane. He spoke up joining the lines, "You mean to say you and Lilian?"Shane nodded, "Yes. Angel is our daughter.""What?" Julian seemed to get shocked, "You knew? Then why didn’t I alone know anything about this?""Stop it." Nathaniel let out a sigh and yelled at Julian being irritated. He then turned to Shane, "Where did Lilian go by the way?""I don’t know." Shane replied, his eyes still on the doorway. "Don’t tell me you are thinking of separating Lilian from her daughter," Nathaniel spoke up whatever came to his mind. He knew though Shane was angry at Lilian, he had searched for her. He knew that night Shane was with Lilian. But something happening like this didn’t cross his mind. But whatever he would never support Shane trying to separate a child from her mother."Angel is my daughter as well." Shane moved his gaz
As Rose lead Angel to her room, everyone kept staring at them. When they were out of their sight, everyone turned to Shane and Lilian. Whatever Shane was saying was hardly believable but knowing him, he wasn’t a person to make stories or assumption like this. "Lilian, is this true?" Karen asked anyway and stood in front of Lilian. She had to confirm it from Lilian as well, "Whatever Shane is saying, is it true?" Lilian remained silent for a moment only to make Karen ask her again, "I am waiting for your answer, Lilian. Is it true?" "Yes." Lilian replied hesitantly. "I just can't believe this. Why did you leave back then? You should have told us." Karen spoke up again with so much excitement surprising everyone. Aiden, Willow and Elena were silent till now but Aiden spoke up this time, "Willow, are you coming with me, or do you want to stay here for now?" Before Willow could say something, Lilian spoke up, "Aiden?" Ignoring Lilian, Aiden spoke up, his eyes still on Willow, "I hav
It was already afternoon when they reached New York. When the car got parked at the entrance of the Lockwood Mansion, Lilian stared at the proudly standing tall building and all around. Shane got out of the car and rounding, he opened and held the door for Lilian. Angel was sleeping peacefully on the back seat. Must be tired from the journey. Shane thought.He was about to say something but interrupting, Lilian asked, "Shane, can't we stay in a hotel?" She wasn’t being able to get herself ready to face his family all of a sudden. She didn’t think she would have to face them again. Period.Shane stared at her. He didn’t want to disturb her peacefully sleeping daughter. So, instead of uttering anything, he kept glaring at Lilian trying to relay his words. He couldn’t just get what the problem was with her. As much as he was trying to take it normal, she was just going on searching things to agitate him even more. Before Shane could say something, Lilian again spoke up, "You never kn
"Shane, I am sorry. But_" Lilian tried to come up with something, "After Aiden and Willow''s wedding, I wanted to talk about that night and went to find you but you weren’t there. So, I thought you were just trying to avoid me and_""You can't just assume on your own. I had a meeting to attend. Leave that. Why didn’t you tell me when you found out about your pregnancy? Didn’t I had the right to know?" Shane asked, his voice yelling. "This was an accidental pregnancy. I don’t even remember our time together from that night let alone how did this happen. I didn’t know how you would have reacted knowing this. I didn’t want you to blame me about trying to trap you and all. Knowing your granny, I didn’t want to be in a forced relationship. ""How did you know I would have blamed you?""Because like others, you wanted me to be gone from there as well. I couldn’t be selfish and make you sign up for this unwanted responsibility.""You were just thinking on your own. I would never thought like
