I was at the washroom washing my face when I heard someone screaming at the sitting room.
I walked to the sitting room and found Angelo sobbing heavily.
“I’m sorry it’s coming late but I love you, I love you so much s£norita so don’t go” Angelo confessed slowly.
“Do you love me that much….” I asked with a smile and Angelo’s eyes wi-de-ned as he turned around swiftly.
“s£norita!” He called out excitedly as he ran to give me a ti-ght hvg.
“I never knew you were a crybaby. Few minutes ago you looked like you lost your mum, you’ve finally accepted the fact that you love me” I tea-sed and he broke the hvg, wiping off his tears.
“s£norita you scared the hell out of me. What was your text for? I rushed back home immediately after re-ading your text. I can’t believe you plan on leaving me in such a cruel manner, plea-se don’t leave me in such manner. I don’t think I would go back to my normal life if you leave me. I’ve gotten so used to you that I’m scared of losing you, don’t go” Angelo said softly and ran into my [email protected]
I ca-ressed his hair gently, staring at an empty space.
“What do you mean? I wasn’t planning on leaving in the first place. It was only a prank, I had no idea you would fall for it” I laughed and he hvgged me even ti-ghter.
“I totally fell for it because you don’t make such expensive jokes. You wrote on your note that you have a lot of fun things you want to do with me. Of course we can do all that as long as you don’t leave. Don’t [email protected] pranks on me again” Angelo scolded and I nodded with a half smile.
I also didn’t want to leave, I had no choice but to go back to where I hatched. I can’t even share my experience with you because I don’t want you to freak out. Angelo I will be leaving pretty soon but I pleaded to buy sometime so I can share more memories with you. I thought sadly.
“s£norita why are you quiet? St©p scaring me” Angelo [email protected] refusing to let me go.
“You’re ma-king me emotional. Enough of the hvgs before I suffocate, you’re hvgging me so ti-ght that I’m losing my breath” I complained then he broke the hvg.
“Hmm now I feel better” I sighed then walked to the door.
“s£norita where are you going? You have to take me with you wherever you’re going. I won’t let you off my sight so let’s go together” Angelo whined as he ran to me.
“Awwn I think I’m liking this sweet you but I will be getting diabetic sooner than I expected” I uttered staring at Angelo as he held my hand.
“Your ro-mantic lines are serious it almost gave me an heart attack because my heart beat raced fas-ter than usual but where are we heading?” He asked with a smile then I blew air on his face.
“Get yourself together. We have to go check on the girl you hit with your car. Her family must have arrived at the hospital alre-ady” I hinted.
“About that s£norita… ” Angelo hesitated.
“About what?” I asked curiously as I st©pped tying my shoe lace.
“The girl I hit with my car, she’s my little sister” He confessed.
“Wow, you mean your missing sister Ivy. You were taking forever to forgive her but take a look now. The both of you met in a coincidental situation even the heavens are running out of patience. How’s she doing? Hope she didn’t get any complications because of the accident?” I asked curiously.
“The surgery went well but she hasn’t woken up yet. I guess she must have woken up now” He replied putting on his shoes.
“Let’s go say hello to Ivy” I muttered with a smile offering my hand to Angelo and he held it excitedly.
“Of course” He said smiling then we left for the elevator to his car as we drove off to the hospital.
On getting to the hospital, Angelo [email protected]£ out of his car and I followed but what he did next gave me bu-tterflies.
Angelo knelt down at the entrance of the hospital.
“s£norita this may not be a good place to ask you out but I don’t want to waste anymore time. Like the saying goes, you don’t know what you’ve got until you lose it. s£norita I want to love and care for you now you’re in my pres£nce, I don’t want to regret not doing that. I don’t want to lose you so far, you’re the best thing that have happened to me” Angelo confessed staring at me on his knees.
“Wow ro-mantic…. Is this the new trend? Asking a girl out in front of the hospital? Wow he’s so cool” So many people whispered to themselves as they made video of Angelo and I.
“s£norita will you be my girlfriend?” Angelo asked with a smile giving his hand out for me to gr-ab it.
“Say yes! Say yes! Say yes!” Everyone screamed.
“I also don’t want to regret not doing the right thing so yes, I will be your girlfriend. I will your s£norita” I [email protected] with a wi-de smile as I held his hand and he stood up.
“You won’t regret choosing me. I will show you all the love you deserve as we share precious times together My s£norita” Angelo said [email protected] after k!ss!ngthe back of my palm.
“k!ss! k!ss! k!ss! k!ss!” Everyone watching shouted in chorus.
“What’s going on outside? There seem to be a crowd” Angelo’s dad uttered staring at the window.
“Oh boy! Finally he got the nerve to do it. That’s my son” Angelo’s mum complimented then I ran to look at the window as well.
“Too bad I didn’t even get the chance to have a serious crush on Angelo” [email protected] uttered sadly.
“Dad is Angelo asking a girl out downstairs?” Ivy asked and he turned to her with a wi-de smile.
“He finally got the ba-lls. Angelo was totally head over heels for s£norita but he didn’t have the courage to ask her out and now he just did” He explained smiling and I frowned.
“Can I have a look?” Ivy asked grinning from ear to ear then her mum helped her out of the be-d.
I haven’t even told s£norita how I feel. I thought angrily then walked out of the room angrily but [email protected] ran after me.
“You’re not planning on going down there to make yourself look like a total loser right?” [email protected] asked sarcastically and I glared at her.
“You also don’t expect me to stay up here so they can come show off their new relationsh!p. You have no idea how hurt I feel right now, it hurts like crazy. I love s£norita and I couldn’t even tell her that, what if I summoned courage and told her earlier than Angelo did? Do you think she would have said yes to me?” I asked seriously holding back my tears.
“You and I know she wouldn’t say yes to you. You can’t change the fact that she has feelings for Angelo and not you, it doesn’t matter who asked her out first” [email protected] said bluntly.
“You’re not helping matters. I need to go clear up my head” I uttered then got into the elevator.
I [email protected]£ out of the elevator then head for my head just then my phone started ringing.
It’s Dad calling.
“Hello Dad” I said over the phone.
“Where are you right now? We need to discuss about your marriage” Dad said seriously and I couldn’t help it but boost into laughter even in my angry mood.
“What’s so funny you [email protected]!” Dad shouted.
“Dad I have no idea what you’re talking about and right now I’m not in the mood for jokes” I said seriously.
“Do I sound like I’m joking right now? Your wedding is next week so be here before 12 midnight” He ordered then hung up.
“Hahahaha hahahaha” I laughed frustratedly as I sat on the ground with my hand on my hair suddenly h0t tears roll down my cheeks uncontrollably.
s£norita and I headed to the emergency ward with our hands across each other.
“Are you nervous?” I asked with a smile and s£norita smiled.
“I don’t get that nervous easily” s£norita replied and the elevator went wi-de open. We walked to the emergency room and heard laughter.
I could hear Ivy’s voice as she laughed [email protected]
“Ivy is awake” I [email protected] excitedly then went into the emergency ward only to find her laying down with her eyes closed.
I thought I heard her voice some minutes ago. She’s pla-ying dumb. I muttered in my mind.
“Hello everyone” s£norita greeted with a smile as we walked to Ivy’s be-d.
“s£norita you’re here alre-ady. How are you dear? I didn’t see you around when I arrived so I thought you weren’t feeling well” Mum inquired and I cut in quic-kly.
“She just went home to get something that’s why you didn’t see her but she’s here now right. Dad have you spoken to the doctor? When will Ivy be discharged, I have the feeling she didn’t get hurt much” I said sarcastically and Dad chuckled.
“What do you mean I didn’t get hurt much? you almost cracked my [email protected] open” Ivy whined as she stood up out of the blue.
“You got too much energy for one whose [email protected] almost cracked open. You little [email protected] what were you even thinking to jump into the road like that without watching where you were going? Lucky you, I’m such a skilled driver, something terrible might have happened” I scolded as I hit arm gently.
“I’m sorry bro, I’m so sorry. I feel so ashamed to face you, plea-se forgive me” Ivy said slowly as she [email protected]£ down from her be-d with her knees on the floor.
“What are you doing? And what exactly are you apologizing for because you’ve committed too many crimes alre-ady” I said seriously.
“Angelo what are you doing? Why would you let a patient be on her knees. Ivy stand up” Mum instructed seriously but she refused to stand up.
“I’m so sorry bro for not listening to you, I should have listened to you when you said I shouldn’t go with Lee. I promise nothing happened between us when we traveled to America. I broke up with him immediately we got to America, I wanted coming back to Seoul but I was so ashamed to face to you. I should have been more careful on the road, I was so lost in thought that I had no idea what was going on around me” Ivy apologized in tears with her face on the ground then I helped her up.
“If people see this they would think I’m punishing my little sister even when she’s not well. Ivy I forgave you a long time ago, I was just upset because you made Mum go throu-gh so much emotional trouble but it’s alright now. You’re back and you’re not leaving us again. Everyone makes mistakes and I’m not an exception, I should have been there for you when you needed me. I pushed you into Lee’s mess, it’s all my fault” I said slowly as I gave her a hvg.
“Thank you so much bro. Bro you’ve got yourself a girlfriend today” Ivy tea-sed and s£norita looked away. Swiftly I broke the hvg.
“You’ve never [email protected]£d anyone before” Dad, Mum and Ivy chorused and s£norita boost into laughter.
“Why are you laughing” I murmured covering my palm on my face.
“Ivy, my name’s s£norita. It’s nice to meet you” s£norita introduced offering Ivy an handshake but Ivy gave her a hvg instead.
“You’re like family now so no need for the formalities. Welcome to the family, s£norita” Ivy shouted after the hvg and I smiled.
“Even before Angelo asked you out, I’ve always seen you as family” Mum smiled.
“Same here s£norita” Dad uttered and Mum glared at him.
“Don’t you have words of your own, it wasn’t really necessary for you to steal my lines” Mum fired.
“Maria we got divorced years ago but why do you still have fury inside of you and why haven’t you remarried yet? It’s not what I’m thinking right” Dad said sarcastically and Mum rolled her eyes.
“Getting remarried got nothing to do with you so stay out of my business. Why haven’t you remarried yourself? Just st©p getting your hopes up, I’ve come this far without you and I’ve been doing great” Mum fired and I looked away frustratedly.
“Mum, Dad are you sure you don’t want to get back together? Your pretence is so visible that even strangers will think the both of you are pla-ying [email protected] to get. I really can’t watch your drama, let’s go s£norita” I cut in frustratedly and I held her hand.
“Bro have a great time on your first [email protected]£. I will move in with you immediately I get discharged from the hospital” Ivy uttered and everyone looked at her.
“Of course you won’t do that. You would make it awkward, s£norita is staying with me so can you go stay with mum or dad. They have vast rooms and comfortable houses” I protested.
“Listen to your brother Ivy” Dad and Mum chorused.
“Move in with me” They both chorused again.
“St©p saying what I’m saying” They both shouted.
“Bro you don’t expect me to deal with this right, plea-se s£norita can I move in with you guys, I promise I won’t be a third wheel” Ivy requested cutely.
“Of course you can move in with us. Angelo is just whining, I’m pretty sure he’s happy you’re moving in” s£norita said softly and I sighed frustratedly.
“Where’s [email protected]?” I asked looking around.
“She had an urgent call from home so she left minutes ago before you guys [email protected]£ in” Ivy said and I dragged s£norita with me.
“Angelo where are you going?” Mum shouted but I just waved at them without looking back.
I got home and a wi-de smile appeared on Dad’s face.
I can’t believe he’s that happy to see me but he sounded like he was going to devour me throu-gh the phone hours ago. I muttered in my head as I sm-irked.
“Drake how can you be this cruel to your mum and I, you have no idea how much we’ve missed you. Come sit with me” Dad instructed with a smile then I sat down with him on the couch.
“I’ve missed you too as well but I have been so busy I would have come visit” I uttered slowly acting like a child as mum ca-ressed my hair from behind.
“But Dad what was that about on the phone?” I asked curiously.
“I can’t believe our baby boy is all grown up to the extent that he’s getting married” Dad said sadly wiping off his tears with an handkerchief.
“What do you mean? I don’t remember introducing anyone to you as my fiancee” I [email protected] a bit confused.
“You don’t have to do that because you’ve shared a physical contact with a young lady. You’re indeed my son, she’s so pretty” Dad said with a smile.
“Drake you have to start ma-king babies immediately after marriage” Mum advised and I grimaced.
“Dad what do you mean by I had physical contact with a young lady? I don’t remember doing any of that” I asked seriously.
“I don’t care whatever happened there but what matters is that you’re having a flash marriage or you come take my position at my company” Dad said looking away.
“Dad that’s one hvge threat. I’ve never imagined you would f0rç£ me to getting married to someone I don’t know” I protested.
“Of course you know her. Here are my docvments, it’s fine if you don’t want to get married to her. You can just sign this transfer of properties docvment” Dad said seriously and I stood up getting pissed.
“What if I refuse to do either of them” I said seriously.
“You don’t have any option other than things. You know I can make things serious and tense if I want to. We will be having some guests soon so go get changed into something nice. Honey take him with you” Dad said seriously and Mum walked me to my room.
“Your dad would never make any decisions that would harm you. You should see this in a positive way, don’t let your dad get possessive you know he’s worse when he gets to that extent. Go get changed” Mum instructed with a smile then went out of my room.
I got changed angrily then [email protected]£ out of my room as I head for the sitting room.
“Drake come say hello to your fiancee” Dad said smiling then I went forward. My eyes went wi-de open in shock.
“Drake!” She called out in shock as well.
Drake good luck😹😹
