❤️Kayla’s POV❤️
So she’s Jake’s ex.. Well, if they were together then I don’t want to be the one in the middle.
I mean why will Jake suddenly want to come back to me after I fought and beat up his ex?
Is he trying to use me as a bait or what? Is this some kind of mischievous plan by him?
Anyway it is, I just don’t want to be third party and right now, being in a relationship with all my current problems isn’t something I want and definitely not with my rival’s ex. As much as it still seem strange and cunning to me, I don’t think Jake is that kind of person but duh! He once broke up shabbily with me and it’s been a while since I saw him last after that and people change right?
He’s human too so..
I felt like going to tell him straightaway but the bell stopped me and I had to adjust the time.
School closed for the day and unfortunately, I didn’t get to see Jake in his cl@ss or anywhere else so I just walked out of the school building with Clara..
We were out and I walked with her to the parking lot where her ride was..
“So I’ll see you tomor..” She was saying but the rest of her words died down when I sight Jake resting at the back of a black car. I noticed his dressing was intact but his hairstyle had been changed. Clara touched my shoulder and I gave her a quick look.. She giggled after tracing my gaze to him.
“Just a second” I excused myself and took out the card from my bag as I walked towards him.
“Jake?” I called when I reached him and when he turned, I noticed the effect of his hairstyle on his face. It suited his looks.
I wonder how he got to make that so quick and during school hours?
I ignored his smooching hot face.. Recapturing myself from getting affected.
“Hi” he smiled at me, adding to his looks. I returned it slightly and looked away.
“Hi.. Well I’ve been looking for you and it’s great that I found you cos I need to return this,” I stretched the card to him and he gave me a confused look..
Okay is it strange that even his confused face looks hot?
“Why?” He asked. His voice a little more manlier than usual and emanating with a sort of familiar aura. Could it be that the hurt changed it?
“Well cos I can’t attend it. I just can’t, there’s no reason but I just can’t. I’m sorry” I said and he looked from the card to my face.
“Why exactly do you hate me so much, Kayla?” He asked, unresting from the car.
I pushed the accent he pronounced my name with aside and gave him a blank stare.
“I don’t hate you J-
“Look, I know you do. The way you look at me and talk to me.. It’s different and I know when a person hates me but I just don’t know why you’re being so extra about it” he said and my brows furrowed..
Extra? Really.. Did he just say extra?!
“Are you being serious right now? You broke up with me in the most shaming way ever, insulted and mocked me and now you think you can just zoom in back like nothing happened. Isn’t it suspicious that you start to get closer just after I fought with your girlfriend?!” I exhilarated and he gave me a blank look.. A hypocritical one.
He probably wasn’t expecting me to have gotten his aim so quick..
“Look Jake, I’ll be honest, regardless of your sincerity or not.. I’m not up for a relationship and even though I am I’m definitely not settling for a guy like you” I said, surprised that I didn’t breakdown or falter in my words. I dropped the card on his hand and he took it from me, I made to turn.
“But you’re still in love with me, aren’t you?” His voice stopped my movement. “I know it Kay.. Behind those hate looks, I also see the p@ssion.. We both know it Kay, you can’t deny it” he said and I was suddenly speechless. I gulped in slowly.
His l!ps had a lopsided smile.
“T-that doesn’t matter Jake and you’re totally wrong. I’m done here” I said and made to go but he pulled me back by my wrist, I felt a strange spark, probably triggered by the s£nsation but it wiped immediately when I realised that I was so close to him and our faces were just few metres apart.. My breathing hitched unannounced and I saw the stupid guy still wearing his lopsided smile.
“What if I klzz you right now?” He said, his grin on.
He’s enjoying this, huh?
“W-w-what?” I stuttered, gulping and taking a mouthful of air and he grinned even more, w€tting his l!ps in a strange yet familiar way. My heart was racing and I hoped he didn’t hear it.
What kind of effect is he having on me right now?
His eyes stayed on me..
I almost jumped out of my skin when I saw him lean in first and then again..
My eyes grew wide..
“Okay you both aren’t about to do that right here, are you?” Clara suddenly chipped in, her voice filled with so much humor..
I immediately pulled away from Jake’s grip and moved away.
I gave him a last look and turned to Clara, she was laughing as she led me away.
“Okay I know I lost control back there but is it that funny?” I asked with raised brows.
“No.. Sorry” she laughed, trying to enclose it “That’s not why, it’s just that.. Well, you don’t know it so let’s just drop this. I’m going home now, bye” she said and walked away. I looked back and realised Jake was no longer there. I sighed and walked home.
I walked to the entrance and saw that the door wasn’t locked and the TV was on.. I dragged my body to it, opened the door and walked in.
Mom was doing some arrangement at the fireplace when I walked in.
“Good afternoon, mom” I greeted sullenly.
“Afternoon honey, how was school?”
“Good, I guess” I said. “I’ll just go to my room and leave you to do..whatever you’re doing there” I said and she nodded, m0@ning an okay. I walked to my room and ran a hand through my hair..
Standing up with a sigh, I walked to my table and began undressing.. Left in only my underwear, I walk to my bedside hanger to pick up my sweatp@nts and shirt..
I pulled the p@nts on and was on the shirt when my door burst open and mom stepped in, halfway through it, I turned to give her a look..
She giggled.
“Oh.. Sorry honey. I just needed to take-” her voice suddenly faltered and she gave me a gob smacked look
“What the heck happened to you!?” She immediately rushed up to me and grabbed me gently before I could talk.
“When did this happen, I mean how?!” Her eyes held horror and fear.
“U-uhm what?” I asked, confused and she pointed to my back. I moved from her to the mirror and checked it out and a slow g@sp escaped from my l!ps when I saw how battered, cracked and wounded my back was.
Wait.. Why am I just seeing this?! It’s obviously from the fall back then but I thought the wound had cleared up.. It looked pretty painful but I felt nothing and gradually everything slowly registered in my head..
The necklace took the pain! But why not the scars?
“Mom its nothing-” I said, putting my cloth on. “You shouldn’t worry about it cos-”
“What? We’re going to Doc Hamilton’s immediately!” She said and began walking out.
“But mom-”
“Don’t mom me and get to the car!” She said seriously and with an air of finality before walking out..
Oh geez..

❤D. Kincaid’s POV❤️
“Are you sure of what you’re saying, Doc?” I asked Brett for the third time, with skepticism, itching my temple.
“Absolute Kincaid, it’s right there in the test result. Your daughter’s perfectly fine” he repeated, leaving me more confused.
“But.. Isn’t that absurd?” I asked with a frown “I mean with all those injuries and-” I w€t my l!ps with a sigh.
“Yes, it might sound and look absurd but it’s partly normal too and you should be grateful that none of her bones and organs were affected. It’s a miracle I must say and you should be glad” he tapped my shoulder “they’re preparing her to be discharged, excuse me” he said and walked away. I sighed and ran a hand through my curls..
He says It’s normal for one to have that much injury and be perfectly fine.. Like there was no single trace of pain or internal damage in the result and Kayla also claim to be perfectly fine.
But still.. I can’t help but fish out the strangeness in here and lately Kayla seem to have been acting more than the normal and.. Well, I should just see her first..
Before I could get to her ward, she was already walking out if it, she reached me and I gave her a small smile as we walked to the car.
“What did the doctor say?” She asked as I started the car.
“That you’re perfectly fine and with no trace of harm” I said.
“I told you that, didn’t I?” She asked.
“You did but I can’t take any chances, I mean with all those marks and deeps wounds?” I shrugged. “I still don’t trust Brett’s theory but I’ll just let it p@ss for now” I said.
“Well whatever. I’m sleepy now” she said and rested her head on the gl@ss.
I gave her a quick studying glance, w€t my l!ps and looked ahead..
Why do I have a suspicious feeling about this?
I sighed inaudubly, swerving my car to the round about.
🍵Kayla’s POV🍵
After a light and silent dinner that night, mom klzzed me goodnight and I turned off my lamp and seconds later, I was fast asleep.
I arrived school the next day, tossed a hi to Clara and settled down before we had the teacher for first period.
During lunch break, Melvin came to where Clara and I sat in the cafeteria.. I looked behind him to see if any of his flirty followers were after him but they weren’t.
“Kayla I-” he paused as if breathless, gave Clara a grimace and turned back to me. “Can I talk to you for a sec?” He asked and I frowned at him..
“What about?”
“Alone. Please” he said.
“Just for a second” I emphasized, standing up. We both moved to a corner in the café, void of more people with less stabbing gawks.. I turned to Melvin with a questioning look.
“It’s about the necklace,” he said.
“What about it?” I asked moistening my lower l!p with my tongue.
“Yesterday, you must’ve felt an unusual pain and it–
The rest of his words died down when my gaze moved to his hair and focused on how it was styled.. A grimace suddenly crossed my face as I stared deeply at it..
How come Melvin has same hairstyle as Jake?
And why am I just noticing the likeness of their voice and.. No not the likeness of their voice but Jake’s voice did sound unusual when we spoke yesterday and then he acted like he had no idea about what he had done months ago, he sounded like.. Well, a different person and he didn’t have that hairstyle when I spoke to him earlier yesterday and then he suddenly had it after school hours.. Now that I think about it, something seem to have been off..
I probably wasn’t talking to Jake yesterday but-
“Kayla,” I jerked up to see Melvin giving me a questioning stare “Are you even listening to me?”
“It was you?” I repeated, a little unsure.
“Me what?” He asked..
“You pretended to be Jake, didn’t you?” I asked and he suddenly wore a blank stare “Don’t deny it Melvin, the hairstyle matches and I know Jake didn’t have this hairstyle yesterday so..It was you?” I repeated and he w€t his lower l!p, giving me a raised brow look.
“Well..yes. You didn’t want to tell me about him so-
“You had to act like him to find out and made me look like a fool?” I completed.
“No, look it wasn’t my intention. I just-
“How could you do that Melvin?” I disrupted his thought.. My mind wavering back to the moment where he almost klzzed me and I had stupidly almost suc¢vmbed.
I shook it off..
Oh geez.. I almost klzzed a beast!
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare or make you look stupid, I just wanted to find out about him”
“And what business of yours is that?” I asked, getting angry. “I told you it wasn’t your business, why didn’t you just stick with that?”
“I’m sorry, okay?”
“You think sorry fixes this? I was pouring out all those words thinking it was at the right person and damn you even-” I shut the klzz part up. “You know what Melvin, just stay away from me. I’ll help you when I feel I’m ready but for now, please” I said and walked quickly away to where Clara was seated.. I saw blisters of laughter on her face and she tried hiding it when she saw me..
“You knew?” I gave her a stern look and her face suddenly became blank, she nodded.
“I wanted to tell you but I don’t know, I was too carried away with the humor” she said and I rolled my eyes..
Even Clara knew and I didn’t.. I sighed and plopped to the chair, looking away in thought…
How could he even do that? Transforming to Jake just to know about him..
And besides, why is he so interested in knowing Jake?
Is he having fun knowing how much his tricks scares me? Why the heck did he even do that..
I got home after school to meet mom abs£nce.. After a shower and a change of clothes, I watched a TV programme and as night drew close, I felt hungry and decided to go for cereals until mom is back to make dinner as she had promised.. As I stirred the milk into the cereal in the bowl, my mind drifted back to Melvin and as I thought for a while about him, it hit me..
If Jake wasn’t the one I talked to yesterday, then he didn’t get my message about my inability to come to his party and that means he’s probably still expecting me and-
Geez.. I quickly rushed to the living room and checked the time, it was few minutes past six.. Since it’s more like a night party, it should be brief right and geez, I don’t even have his contact number.. I deleted it after we broke up and there’s no way to tell him I wouldn’t be attending the party anymore..
Ugh.. What do I do now?
I didn’t tell mom, I’ll be going out and I can tell her on the phone but still.. Well, I could just go there, give some excuse and get back home even before mom returns.
I went to my room, without rechecking my dressing or redressing, I grabbed my jacket and pulled into it as I rushed out of the house to the station.
I used the evening bus to Jake’s house street and walked to his house, I could see the colorful lights illuminating in the house, from where I stood and as I draw closer to it, I notice Jake standing close to the house gate and staring sideways repeatedly.. He suddenly turn to head in..
“Jake?” I called and he turned, our eyes met..
“Kayla” he called with a hint of surprise, a wide smile spread on his l!ps. “Kayla, goodness.. I’ve been waiting out here for you. I thought you weren’t coming and was about going in” he said, smiling.
“Well, sorry. I kind of forgot. Is it over already?”
“Not yet. Come, let’s go in”
“No Jake. I have to head home now, I just decided to show up cos I knew you might be expecting me” I said.
“Come-on Kay. You can’t just leave.. My family’s expecting you and besides, the party’s almost over.. You’re here now, so why don’t you just stay,” he said “please” he said and I was about refusing but the next moment I found him drawing me inside and my feet following.
We got in and I could see few people relaxing on the porch, all nicely dressed but Jake kept moving me past them to the house..
“Jake wait-” I stopped him. “Look I don’t think I can go in, I didn’t even inform my mom about this” I said.
“Okay.. Then we’ll leave after I’m done introducing you to my family” he said and I shook my head..
“But.. But, I’m not ready. I mean look at me, I’m not even properly dressed. I didn’t plan for it” I said with a frown.
“I don’t mind and I’m sure my family wouldn’t either and I promise we’ll leave once you meet my family, okay?” Without waiting for a response, he began leading me in again.. And when he opened the door to the house, I froze..
Is he really serious about this?
