‼️COPY AND GO TO HELL‼️
Jaime punched Wyatt on the cheek before pushing him away. Wyatt staggered but held himself from falling to the ground.
“You’re such a fool to have thought of using her just to spite me. You’re a fool Wyatt, a big time fool. And just pray she forgives you for this” Jaime muttered before walking away.
Wyatt bent his head as he cried.
“I’m a fool,” he mumbled.
Jayden and Cole appeared behind him.
“Are you seriously gonna be acting this way? Dude, get your thinking straight!” Jayden half yells.
“Can’t believe you would be crying all because of Layla. You even let that idiot hit you” Cole shook his head.
“I’m so disappointed in you” Jayden and Cole said at the same time.
They looked at themselves before walking away.
“I’m sorry, Layla,” Wyatt whispered as his tears fell.
Layla sat on a chair in an empty [email protected], crying loudly. She couldn’t control her tears as they kept flowing out of her eyes.
She was never happy in her home, she was always sad. The only person she thought she could find solace on was only using her just to spite someone else.
Thinking of it made her cry the more.
“My life is so messed up” sobbed.
“Layla!” She heard Jaime’s voice calling her name.
She buried her face on the table, ignoring his calling. She couldn’t face anyone at that moment, she doesn’t need anyone pity. It’s just going to make her hate her life the most.
Jaime was searching all the [email protected] looking for Layla. He already searched the school compound, and when he couldn’t find her, he decided to check the empty [email protected] in the school.
He searched the last [email protected] and was about to walk away when he saw a student in the [email protected] Judging by the dressing, he knew it was a girl.
“Layla?” He quickly entered the [email protected]
Layla raised her head and she quickly looked away when she saw him walking towards her.
“Why are you here? You should go away” she muttered.
Jaime ignored her and sat beside her.
“Are you okay?” He asked.
“Do I look okay to you?” She asked as she sniffed.
“Leave Jaime, I want to be alone” she said.
Jaime touched her hair and she looked at him.
“You’re not okay Layla, stop acting like you’re fine. I und-erstand how you feel, I..”
“You don’t” she cuts him off.
She bit her li-ps which were trembling.
“Do you know how it feels to be neglected by your own mom? Do you know how it feels to be abused by your own mom? Do you know how it feels to find out the only person you thought loves you turns out to be toying with your feelings? Do you?” Tears fell from her eyes as she spoke out her feelings.
“You don’t Jaime, you don’t. Please leave, I don’t need your pity” she sniffs and wipes her tears.
Jaime stared at her as she cried. He could feel his heart breaking at the sight. What has she been going through?
“I’m not leaving Layla, I’m going to stay here with you and make sure you’re fine. I’m your friend, and friends don’t leave each other when they need themselves the most” Jaime muttered.
Layla stared at him through her tear stained eyes. Did he just call her his friend?
“I don’t know whatever you may be going through, but trust me, I’m never leaving you alone” he raised his hand and cleaned her tears.
He stared at the bruise in her face for sometime before smiling sadly.
“Are you saying this because you pity me?” Layla asked slowly.
“No, I’m saying this because I care about you,” he muttered.
He pulled her to a gentle hug.
“Cry your feelings out, forget about everything that makes you sad, even if it’s just for a short time” he whispered, patting her back gently.
Layla bit her li-ps [email protected], holding her tears in but they betrayed her as they streamed down her cheeks.
She had always wondered why Wyatt was always acting indifferently to her, sometimes she always wondered if he actually cared about her.
Now, she already knows the reason why. Because he was actually toying with her feelings!
ITALY, AT THE HOTEL***
“When are you going to come home?” Leah asked Hailey. They’re on a video call, Sebastian is also pres£nt.
“Tomorrow, I think,” Hailey replied.
“How’s it over there? Is the work too much for you?” Leah asked.
Hailey shook her head.
“It’s totally fine here, Mom”
“That’s good. I was thinking of coming to meet your Boss if he dare try to stress you” Leah said.
Charles appeared at that time. He leaned on the wall with his arms across his ch-est, a smirk on his li-ps.
“Are you sure he’s not stressing you? I can come over and hit him, you know?” Leah asked with a serious face.
“She’s right. I’ll never tolerate anyone stressing about my only daughter” Sebastian said.
Charles stared at Hailey as she conversed with her parents. He wondered what her reply was gonna be.
“Well, he’s good. But….”
“But what?” Leah asked.
“Is he better than Charles? No, I doubt that” Leah shook her head.
Charles was watching Hailey with an amusing smile on his li-ps.
“Who’s Charles?” Sebastian asked cluelessly.
“Hailey’s boyfriend,” Leah smiled.
Hailey’s eyes widened.
“What??” Sebastian and Hailey chorused at the same time.
“What? Did I say something wrong?” Leah asked, looking at Hailey innocently.
“Yes Mom. I never said he was my boyfriend!” Hailey half yells.
“Really? But you told me you’re in lo…”
“Mom!” Hailey screamed this time around.
“I never said that either!” She shouted.
“What’s she talking about?” Sebastian asked.
“It’s nothing, Dad. I need to hang up now, bye!”
“Why? At least, let me speak with my in-laws” Charles said just as she was about to end the call.
Hailey’s eyes went wide when she heard his voice. She raised her head from her phone and was shocked to find him resting on the wall, a smirk on his face.
“You… How long have you been here?” She slightly stuttered.
“Long enough to hear Charles is your boyfriend” he smiled as he started walking closer to her.
“Who’s that Hailey? Is that your Boss?” Leah’s voice was suddenly heard.
That was when Hailey remembered the call was still ongoing, she quickly ended it before Charles could get to her.
“Why did you end it?” He asked.
“I didn’t… My hand mistakenly pressed the…”
“It was a mistake” she completed, bit-ing her li-ps.
Charles smiled and sat beside her on the bed.
“So, your parents don’t know I’m your Boss? Instead they think Charles is your boyfriend?” He asked with a chuckle.
“The day you helped them, my Mom thought you were my boyfriend, that’s why you helped” she said.
“Why don’t we just make this real instead? Both your parents and my Dad think we’re in a relationship, let’s make this real, Hailey” he said, staring at her.
“I…..” Charles’ phone rang before she could reply.
“Excuse me, I’ll be right back” he said and went out of the room.
Hailey left the bed and walked to the veranda. She held the rails as she stared at the hotel compound. Different cars were arriving and she heaved a sigh.
She inhaled the fresh air and she smiled satisfactorily, she let the gentle breeze cool her face. Her hair streaming in the air as a result of the breeze.
*”Why don’t we just make this real instead? Both your parents and my Dad thinks we’re in a relationship, let’s make this real, Hailey”*
She remembered his words.
She was only scared. What if he’s toying with her? Besides, he’s her Boss, how would it feel when her colleagues find out she’s dating the Boss?
She was brought out of her thoughts when she felt arms suddenly wrapped around her from behind.
Charles inhales her sweet scent and ki-sses her ne-ck.
“Why did you leave the bed? I told you I won’t be late” he muttered, hugging her tighter.
“I only came to relax outside,” she said. She tried to get out of his hold but he made it impossible for her.
“Stay still, don’t take a move” he whispered.
He ki-ssed her hair before placing a lingering ki-ss on her shoulder.
“I love you. I love you and it’s driving me crazy, Hailey” he whispered.
He slowly removed his arms and made her face him.
“I won’t hurt you, I promise. I’ll never do that” he said.
“Remember the dinner at our house? When my Dad asked if I loved you. My reply was right, I love you more than my life, Hailey. You gave me the reason to love again, you made my heart to beat for love again. You changed me, Hailey” he said.
“Date me for a week, Hailey. I want you to date me for a week and I promise to make you fall in love with me. For that week, I want to know your feelings towards me”
“I don’t want to date you for a week,” Hailey muttered.
“I….” Without allowing her to finish her word, Charles pulled her to a hug.
“Don’t say it, I don’t think my heart can take it” he muttered.
“I love you, Charles”
WASHINGTON DC, MONTERIO’S FAMILY HOUSE***
“Sir, here’s what you asked me to investigate” a guy bowed his head to Mr. Monterio.
“Just beat to the bush. What did you find out about her?” Mr. Monterio asked.
“She’s Hailey Brooklyn. She lives with her parents who manage a restaurant in Kelso”
Mr. Monterio’s eyes widened slightly.
“Kelso? That poor neighborhood?” He asked in disbelief.
“That relationship is never happening” his eyes suddenly turned red.
He could never allow his son to date a poor lady again!
