I woke up very late, I had this body weakness as if I was wrestling in the dream and my neck aches badly.
I stood up staggering inside the bathroom, I washed my face and I was relieved a bit, I came out to see that my door wasn’t lock, I went and closed it properly.
I need to take a shower before going down, I wrapped a towel on my waist and entered the bathroom switching on the shower, the cold water cascaded on my bare skin after some minutes I was done,immediately I came out a call entered my phone.
I rushed to where it was and picked it up, it was my assistant calling me
“Hello “I said angrily
“Boss there is a problem “he said through the phone
“What problem could it be that it can’t wait and you can’t take care of it? “I asked angrily
“Boss I sent you a message the first time, you received it but you didn’t call back “he said at once
“Message? What message are you talking about and who received it because I didn’t “I said yelling
“Boss it showed that you received the message, The biggest share older in the company want to have a meeting with you in person “he said
“Didn’t You tell him that it is not possible? “I asked angrily
“Boss please calm down, I told him but he said that if
“Ok, I will take care of this “I said and hanged up the phone
He said a message was sent to me and it was also received, I didn’t receive or see any text who could have seen the text
“Wait, let it not be true that what I am thinking is the truth “I said to my self
Immediately my door was opened
“Wow wow wow, congratulations Richard or should I say Richy”Claire’s voiced out angrily
“Claire what is happening? “I ask pretending to know nothing about what she is saying
“Stop the pretense please “she yelled walking towards me
“Claire please, I didn’t get what you are insinuating “I said walking backwards
“Don’t play dump with me, haven’t you notice that someone read your text already? “She ask and smirked
“Which message?”I asked back
This guy can really pretend maybe acting will suit him so well
“Quit the lies already,years back you came into my life, you occupied every space in my life but at the end what did you do? You left me broken, you chose that slut over me and now you came back acting all nice and cool, you even went to the extent of faking your personality and come to think of it, this isn’t your face maybe you have faked it”I said with tears dropping uncontrollably
“Claire please I can explain please just give me a chance please”he said coming close to me..
“You said that you can explain and
“Claire I have always loved and cherish you but I was too young and stupid back then that I took your love for granted please forgive me, let’s talk this out please “he said coming close to me
” Don’t touch me and I don’t want to hear anything that comes from your lieing tongue, just let me be already “I said and ran out.
Out of the house, I took to my heels running to anyway my legs could carry me, I don’t know exactly where I am going but I just wanna run away from the pains, from the lies and pretense.
Not again, I can’t loose Claire not for anything in the world.
I ran out of the house searching every nork and cranny of the place but I didn’t see her, she shouldn’t do something stupid not now.
I waited till late in the night there was no break light of Claire, I tried her number but she isn’t picking up.
Claire didn’t come back that day but the following morning I woke up to see the room empty and tattered.
Claire’s belongings were missing meaning that she has gone back to the state without telling me.
🍃 Claire 🍃
I came back to the house, it was so quiet and lonely looks like Richard is asleep already, I tiptoed into the house and saw him sleeping on the sofa maybe he was waiting for me
“Hmm poor thing “I said and walked down to him, I carried his legs from the floor and placed it well on the sofa, I went to my room and packed all my belongings going back to the state isn’t a problem to me because I have booked a flight already.
After packing everything I tiptoed out of the house closing the door silently.
Once he wakes up he will realize that I am gone, I can’t face him not after fooling me he should not expect me jumping on him just because I love him.
He must pay for fooling me and hurting me through out this years.
The last day I saw Claire was the night she knew my identity, since that night till now I haven’t seen nor heard from her again.
Months back I thought she went back to their house but she didn’t go there, I have been searching for her like ages now and no one knows of her where about.
I can’t focus on my business, everything I do and think is all about Claire, I know Claire wanted me to suffer for causing her pains and fine she won already because I can’t think straight my mind, my heart and my head is calling out her name.
2 years later
I went back to my Normal self, I started life afresh hoping that fate will eventually draw us together but I was wrong because it didn’t I think we are not meant to be.
I came in contact with a colleague of mine in the company, we were friends at first but one things leads to the other we started dating and we get so used to each other that we can’t bear to be separated.
I thought that this is my fate, I have to spend the rest of my life with Mira, we planned for our wedding and everything went as planned.
I was invited to a friend’s bachelors eve
because he is also getting married, so he wanted me to be his best man, I agreed because that is what friends do.
At the wedding
the groom was welcomed inside and the next person was the bride
I didn’t even dream that in my wildest life my friends fiancee will be my life time crush the person that makes life difficult for me, I search every where looking for her but here she is about getting wedded.
I tried controlling my happiness, because finally I have found her but at the other hand what is the use of seeing her, she is another man’s woman, I can’t have her.
I was still thinking and pondering over my emotions when she stopped in front of me
I opened my mouth to say something but nothing came out because I didn’t have anything to say.
You can hi ome on+233544142683 to be added to story headquarters room for more exciting stories.
We stared at each other for some minutes, I don’t know what is going through her mind.
when I thought that my life will take a new turn, that I will be able to forget my past and move on eventually everything came back all at once.
Setting my eyes on Richard gave me a reason to smile, my belly tightened and butterflies jumped up in joy, I couldn’t held my joy, I couldn’t continue the wedding.
I turned to my life saver John, when I was so broke and wanted giving up hope, John was always there for me he gave me every reason to live bur right now I can’t think straight and I don’t want to know what is right and what is wrong.
I just want to be with my happiness, my life time crush.
“My Disguised Crush “I said and hugged him tightly to my self.
Even when the whole congregation shouted out, I paid no attention to them.
“I am so sorry John but I belong to my crush “I said hugging him
