REVENGE WAS THE PLAN
“That will be like a dream come true Dr.
Collins.” I said with a small smile just to think
of the possibility to hear my dads voice once
again made me feel over joyed. “I have to go
now, please call me if you see any change in
him, I’ll do my best to come more often.”
After the hospital I went to the mall to shop
for an outfit for tonight cocktail party , with the
credit card Adam gave me, I’m not very happy
using his card or going with him, but after last
night I wouldn’t dare to go against him, is
better to avoid all kind of confrontations with
I picked a mid length black dress with sequins
all over, it had a small cut on the right,
showing a little bit of my tight. I thought it
looked elegant but at the same time modern
and sexy because it hugged my curves like if it
was made just for me. I paired it with golden
heels and golden accessories.
This is the dress Emma picked:
With my hair I decided to go for a messy low
bun, keeping some strings of hair in the sides
of my face. My makeup was a smokey eye,
which I haven’t done in a very long time but
still managed to do a great job.
I took a long breath and left my room, silently
praying to catch Adam in a good mood
I was impatiently waiting at the end of the
staircase, the nerve of the woman for keeping
me waiting. I looked at my watch for the 5th
me look up, and there she was, I’ll never admit
that she looked gorgeous, it was the perfect
combination of sexiness and sophistication.
The back on of her dress accentuated her
beautiful red hair.
I gulped when she started going down the
stairs, she looked nervous, and I could still
see fear in her eyes. I was certain that my
glare was making her uncomfortable but some
strange and powerful force in me wouldn’t let
me take my eyes off her. She was now right in
front of me, working so hard to hide that she
was afraid like an unprotected little animal.
“Shall we.” Was all I managed to say,
indicating towards the door,we walked out and
I hated myself for not being able to keep my
hands off her back. I touched her and
electricity ran all over my body.
When I started my way downstairs and saw
Adam at the end of it and my heart skipped a
beat, he looked so handsome and so
dangerous at the same time. His three piece
black suit made him look gorgeous like never
before and his hair perfect as always brushed
all the way to the back.
I can’t forget how afraid he makes me feel
some times, cant believe I still like him… What
what did I just say? No it can’t be. Then I felt
how he touched my back and my entire body
reacted to it, never mind, I do like him. Emma
you have completely gone insane. My inner self
spoke, if only I could slap my own face right
The driver opened the doors for us and then
took his seat to drive us to the event. The car
ride was awkward and quiet. Adam will look at
me from time to time and then out his window.
Just until he spoke to me, it got more
awkward if that’s even possible.
“Put this on before we get off the car, and
make sure to always wear it in public”
He handed me a small velvet box with a ring
inside. I looked at it and then at him, for a
second questioned to myself why he was
giving me a ring, of course ‘I was his wife’, a
wife is expected to wear a ring. I put on the
big diamond and then continued looking out
my window rolling my eyes and telling myself
We arrived at the reception and it was very
beautiful, you can see the entire city since it
was at a roof top. Lights hanged over our
heads and a life band played, it looked chic
and relaxed. Servers walked around with trays
“Emma, meet my friend Tristan.”
“Very nice to finally meet you Emma, please let
me know if you ever need me to pull this guy’s
ears for you.”
“Nice meeting you, Tristan.” I gave him a faint
smile, that was more like a fake smile. If only
he would know who his friend truly is, or
maybe he knows that’s why he’s telling me
” You’re so annoying Tristan.” Adam said
rolling his eyes.
He then left me alone in a corner, I could see
him exchanging small talk with people around
the party finding myself bothered by how
women looked at him, making any excuse to
somehow touch him. I rolled my eyes every
time, but my heart broke when I saw him
dancing with one of those man-eaters. I
wanted to go home so bad.
“What is a beautiful women like you doing here
alone? ” I voice took me out of my thoughts.
“I’m not alone, I’m here with my husband.” I
tried to make him go away with the word
‘husband’ but it was no help.
“Oh… You have a very dum husband, who in
his right mind would walk away from you for
even a second, come with me, we can have
some fun together.”
He grabbed me by my waist, I used all my
strength to push him away. I was disgusted by
the smell of alcohol that came out of his
mouth, no doubt he was wasted. I pushed and
pushed making no effect in him.
“Leave me alone, you pig.”
“Don’t play hard to get and kiss me, I know
you want.” He was now forcing his mouth
closer to mine.
I don’t know how but next thing I know he was
on the floor, touching his nose while blood ran
out of it. My eyes grew wide in shock after
seeing who had just punched him.
I don’t know what got me, but when I saw that
dunk’s hands on Emma I totally lost it and
punched him as hard as I could. He’s now on
the floor trying to hold blood from coming out
of his nose, I look at Emma and her breathing
is agitated tears starting to form in her eyes.
“Don’t you ever put your filthy hands on my
wife again and get out of here, you are fired!!”
“Mr. McRoberts !! I … I didn’t know she was
your wife, I…. I’m s..sorry.”
“I said out !!!!” I yelled trying to control the
urge to beat him to death. People started to
gather around us just to see the scene, I see
Tristan coming to me.
“Adam what happen?” I didn’t answer, my mind
was now focused in one thing, Emma.
“Are you OK? ” I asked her, she nodded yes
with her head, looking so vulnerable and
fragile, I don’t know where this need to protect
her is coming from, but I just followed my
I wrapped an arm around her waist and took
her out, my driver waited for us at the door.
Inside the car I didn’t know what to do, my
heart wanted to comfort her but my mind was
forcing me to hold back. Emma surprised me
by breaking the silence speaking in a whisper,
fear still emerging from her eyes.
“You shouldn’t have fire him.”
“Like hell I can, he’s my employee.”
“I’m not worth somebody’s job.”
I didn’t like to see her like this, feeling
worthless, but why? This is the reason I
brought her closer to me, to see her like this. I
spent all this time thinking that this will bring
me relief but it was making the opposite effect
and I hated myself for it.
Now at home she walked towards the stairs
wanting to go to her room, her shoulders down
just like her head and something in me didn’t
want to let her go, I grabbed her arm making
her change direction, now facing me. I
regretted it the second our eyes meet because
I had no idea what to say.
” I hope you can sleep well.” Was all I
managed to say. My face changed in whimper
as result of the pain I felt coming from my
knuckles, we both looked at it and realized
blood was coming out. She ran upstairs.
I lay down in the sofa, trying to clear off my
mind, Emma was having this effect in me that
I liked and hated all at the same time. I
started to doze off when a soft touch in my
hurting hand woke me up, I moved my head to
the side to see Emma siting on the floor with
a first aid kit at hand.
“Would you mind?” she asked and all I did is
continue to look into her green eyes, she
interpreted that as a ‘yes’ and stated to clean
up my wound. My gaze was on her the entire
time, I don’t know if she realized that or not
and at point I didn’t care.
When she finished and made an attempt to get
up I stopped her by holding her hand, our eyes
met and I saw how the fear transformed into
something else that I knew very well because I
was feeling the same. I moved closer to her
and was able hear her heart pounding and her
breathing getting more and more agitated.
mouths only inches apart. That’s it I’m kissing
her, I’ll deal with the regret tomorrow.
Just when I was about to kiss her, the loud
sound thunder echoed all over the house
making us both startle in response. We were
out of the trance produced by the proximity we
She was now taking her leave but turned half
way and said.
“For protecting me tonight, no one has ever
protected me the way you did, thank you.”
My breathing was out of control I’m not sure if
it was a result of my running or for what was
about to happen minutes ago in the living
room. I’m walking in the long hallway and rain
started to pour outside, I heard a low sob,
following the sound of it I see Demi outside
her bedroom door shaking and crying so I ran
“Hey, what’s wrong?”
“I’m just afraid of storms and thunders.”
“It’s ok, there’s nothing to be afraid about, I’ll
take you to your room and wait until you fall
asleep.” I grabbed her tiny hand and we walked
together to her room. I helped her into bed and
tugged her in and started playing with her hair
“You know storms are not scary at all, is just
water falling from the sky and thunders are
noisy clouds who want to scare pretty little
I was on my way to my bedroom when I heard
voices coming from Demi’s room, who would
she be talking to this late? The door was ajar
so it was easy to take a peak and I saw
Emma talking to my little girl about her fear for
storms in the sweetest way, like a mother
should talk to her children. What are you doing
Emma?, this was not supposed to happen.
The next morning I went to Demi’s room to
wake her up for school. I opened the door and
saw Emma sleeping next to her, still wearing
the dress from last night, I figured sleeping in
that dress must be very uncomfortable. I
wouldn’t wake them up so I just closed the
door and walked back to my room.
After taking a shower and dressing up for work
I left my room and saw Emma walking to hers,
I could tell she didn’t sleep comfortably.
“Why did you sleep en Demi’s room?”
“I’m sorry, I found her crying in the hallway last
night, the storm scared her, couldn’t leave her
like that so I walked her back in the room, she
wanted me to stay. I’m sorry it won’t happen
My eyes pinned hers, and in the craziest
impulse I grabbed her by her waist with both
hands, my mouth landed in hers. She was
hesitant and surprised at first but then her
muscles got softer and she gave in. I hugged
her body, my hands now moved to both sides
of her face. Her hands in my neck. My entire
boy reacted to the kiss sending electricity all
over. Her soft lips tasted so good I can get
addicted to them.
“So what’s up with you and Emma?” Tristan
asked with a smirk on his face that annoyed
me to death.
“I don’t understand your stupid question?”
“Are your sure about that?” He said reclining in
the seat across my office desk, in front of
“Tristan if you came to my office so early to
talk about this you clearly have nothing else to
do, unfortunately I do, so leave me alone I
have to work.” Tristan’s laughter now filled the
“I’ve never seen you this defensive about any
topic, I’m amazed.”
“What do you want Tristan? I don’t have all
“I want you to acknowledge that you have
feelings for her and that your crazy plan to take
” Don’t be stupid Tristan, just because I
stopped some psycho from raping her doesn’t
mean that we are now the perfect couple, one
thing is me wanting to make her life miserable
and other is me letting her get raped before
my eyes. What I did last night I’ll do it for
anyone, even a stranger, there’s nothing
romantic in it.”
“No buddy, I know you very well, you can’t foul
me. The way you looked at her says
everything, the way you attached that man says
even more, I’m sorry to burst your bubble man
but your revenge failed.” He said getting up
from his seat.
“Stay around and watch.”
“Will see Adam, will see.” He said before
taking his leave and closing the door behind
He was right, I was getting softer, this can’t
happen, not now, I need to be stronger. I was
developing a soft spot for Emma that will take
me to place that I don’t plan to be at. I hate
that there’s something special abut her,
something like a magnet that pulls me to her.
I can get over what happened this morning with
Adam, he insults me and then he kisses me, I
can’t read him, this is driving me crazy. That
was my fist kiss, and it was beyond what I’ve
always imagined. His lips were soft and rich, I
found myself missing his warm touch as soon
as he stooped kissing me and stormed out
without saying a word, leaving me stunned and
nervous with heavy breathing.
How can this man be so cold and warm at the
same time? how can I be this afraid of him
and crave his kisses so much? this situation is
very confusing and I just hope not to get hurt
at the end of it.
I spent the day thinking abut Adam, the kiss
and his constant mood swings. I need to get
myself busy to stop these thoughts otherwise
I’ll go insane, so I decided to make dinner
tonight, I’ve always enjoyed cooking, hopefully
Martha will let me use her kitchen.
I walked in and asked her.
“Hi Martha, can I ask a favor from you?”
“Certainly milady, how can I help?”
“If is not too much to ask… Can I cook
“You don’t need to ask that Mrs. Emma, this is
your home you can do as you please, I’m here
to follow your orders. If you allow me I’ll more
than happy to help you, may I ask what are you
planing to make?”
My face lit up with excitement, I was getting
tired of doing nothing.
“How about a Beef Stew?”
“I’ll follow your lead milady.”
With Martha’s help I managed to make a
delicious stew when Demi arrived from school
I served some to her and she loved it. Once
done she gave me a hug and a kiss and went
upstairs to take a bath.
It was about 8 pm and Adam wasn’t back from
“Mrs.Emma would you like to eat now? Is
getting late, you must be hungry.”
“Thank you but I’m fine Martha, I’ll wait for
After another half hour Adam finally arrived,
Demi was already in bed, he probably had a
very busy day at work because he always tries
to make it home before Demi’s bed time.
“Hi, I bet you had a rough day at work, you
never come home this late.” His face remained
intact as if no one just spoke to him.
“Mmm… I…. I hope you’re hungry, I made
dinner.” This time he looked at me with a hint
of surprise in his eyes, but managed to keep
his signature poker face.
Martha made up the table and placed two
plates for the both of us. We took seats I was
so confident that Adam will like my stew that I
just looked at him for a chance to see his
reaction. But like always everything went to
I startled in my seat when he slammed his
plate across the table making it land in the
floor, stew now rolled everywhere. My eyes
wide in surprise.
“This food is awful, I hate it as much as I hate
I got up from my chair tears forming at the
edge of my eyes, but I wouldn’t cry I won’t
give him the pleasure to see me crying, but I
“Why? What have I ever done to you to make
you hate me so much? Please tell me I need
“You disgust me as much as this food does.”
He yelled and stormed out. I felt relived, I can
finally cry, my breathing got agitated as my
tears rolled out. This is my fault, all my fault,
why did I think making dinner will be a good
I kneeled to pick up the mess left by the
monster I have as husband. Martha ran to me
trying to calm me down but I couldn’t my
heavy breathing and my pounding heart could
“Mrs. Emma please clam down, I’ll clean this
“Why is he like that Martha, what have I done
“I’m sorry, I don’t know what’s wrong with him,
ever since his wife died in a horrible car
accident two years ago he became bitter and
sad, but I promise, he’s a good man, he has
the biggest heat, please be patient.”
“I can’t Martha, I can’t live my life like this.”
After helping Martha clean up I left to my
room. Laying in bed thinking about everything
that’s going on. I can’t continue with this I
don’t want to live my life being insulted all the
time. As much as I’ve got to love Demi and
appreciate Martha I can stay in this house. I’ll
tell him I’m leaving.
Trembling like never before I approached his
study, I don’t know how Adam will take this
decision, but I need to do it I don’t even have a
place to go, jet staying here is not an option at
I knocked on the door softly. I heard Adam’s
voice shouting from the inside.
I decided to open and walk inside afraid of
what will happen to me.He never looked up
from the document he was reading, but I knew
he felt my presence because after a few
seconds he slowly lifted only his eyes, eyes
that penetrated me like daggers.
“I…. I wanted to tell you that I’m leaving.” I
said making the biggest effort to sound strong,
inside I was a mess of emotions.
He fully lifted his face from the document,
know giving me his full attention. Immediately
a shiver ran down my spine as I saw him
leaving the paper aside, getting up from his
chair and walking towards me, his intense
glare gave me goosebumps. Adam walked and
only stopped when a few inches stood
between us. A low voice in my head begged
me to satay and be strong.
“So you want to leave…. You can leave
whenever you want, you’re not my prisoner.”
” Good, so I’m leaving tonight.” I said and
turned my back to walk to my room, pack and
leave, but Adam’s voice made me stop.
” Do you have 250 thousand dollars to pay me
back tonight before you go?”
I looked at him, how can this man be so
heartless, he knows very well I don’t have that
money, he probably saw that the check was
cashed, that’s why he said I can go because
he knew I won’t be able to. It was his way to
stop me from leaving without telling me
“You know I don’t have that money anymore.”
My nerves were at the verge of total collapse
me walked, now extremity close I could smell
his delightful breath. He grabbed me by my
waist, our bodies touching and his mouth
invaded mine, and for a second time today I
couldn’t resist his touch, something in him
made my ability to reason disappear.
This kiss was desperate and demanding, he
grabbed my but with both hands lifting me up,
I gave in to whatever he was trying to do and
wrapped my legs around his waist, the kiss
never broke. He walked us to his desk and sat
me on it. His two hands touched both sides of
my face. I felt his tongue exploring my mouth
and I let him, enjoying every second I got to
feel his soft lips. After a while he whispered in
my mouth, never breaking the kiss.
“Then you can’t leave me.”
Why is Adam doing this to me? does he know
how much this situation confuses me?
I can’t deny the fact that I like him, I mean I
can’t deny that at this point. Is very obvious for
both of us that once he touches me I loose
myself, I can’t think, I can’t move, I can’t put
my common sense to work I just follow him,
his touch and his intoxicating aroma. The fact
that I don’t know if he feels the same bothers
me so much. What if he knows the effect he’s
having on me and is just using it to mess me
I finally get up from my bed, is almost 9 am
and I’ve never been in bed this late.
I took the longest shower and got dressed on
pair of skinny jeans, a white blouse, a
cardigan, and over sized scarf and some low
I came into the kitchen and found my cup of
warm coffee waiting for me on the kitchen
Gotta love Martha.
I sat on the patio enjoying the beautiful
morning sipping in my coffee. After all, this
life is way more calmed than the life I had
before. My cellphone ringing took me out of
my thoughts, it was an unknown number.
“H…hi ….Emma, is that you?”
“Yes, this is she, who’s this?”
“Emma, is me Jason” Fear invaded my body,
my hands started to shake.
“Listen …I’m sorry, I know I’ve been horrible to
you, please don’t hate me”
“Why are you calling me?”
“First I wanted to apologize and second, to ask
for your help.”
“What do you need?”
“I need money, the landlord gave me until
tomorrow to pay the rent, if I don’t pay I’ll be
living the streets, I’m your brother, your only
brother Emma, you can’t abandon me like this.”
“I don’t have money, I’m sorry.”
“Please Emma, please I don’t have a place to
stay, help me only this time. I’m working on
getting a job, as soon as I do I’ll be back up
on my feet and wont ask you for anything
“Jason, the last time I saw y… you.. you
slapped me on the face for no reason, I don’t
think is a good idea for me to go back home.”
“I know and I’m sorry, I promise you I’ve
changed, please give me a chance I need you
“Fine, but promise me you won’t put your
hands on me this time.”
“I give you my word sister.”
“OK, I’ll be there in one hour.”
I hang up with a feeling that this was a terrible
idea, but what can I do? Jason is my brother,
no matter what he does he’s my blood. What
would dad say if he knows that Jason needed
me and I refused to help.
Deep down I know Jason’s behavior is a result
of mom leaving us, he was so little. He
probably can’t remember her face, I do
because I was older. I think about her every
day and I know he does too.
After my coffee was finished I walked into the
kitchen, rinsed my cup and informed Martha
that I was leaving and will be back in about
one hour. I saw file with papers inside on the
dining table and asked Martha abut them.
“Mr. McRoberts wanted to take them to work
this morning for a meeting and ended up
forgetting and leaving them by mistake.”
“Oh no… You know what, I’ll take them to him
since I’m going out anyways.”
“OK, Mrs. Emma, I’ll inform the driver to be
ready to take you.”
“No need, I can go by myself, I’m used to it.”
“Are you sure?”
“One hundred percent, I’ve always taken care of
myself, and not because I’m now married to
Mr. McRoberts will be any different.”
I took the buss and arrived at the apartment a
while after, I kept a copy of the keys with me
so I used it to open the door. Walking inside I
realized that this place hasn’t been cleaned in
a while, probably since I left. I walked a little
further inside and placed Adam’s file on the
kitchen counter, making a mental note to not
forget to grab it when leaving.
I picked up some shirts from the floor and
didn’t bother to fold them because by the
smellA I could tell they were dirty, so I put
them on the couch. A noise behind me made
me turn and in that second I knew coming here
was a vey bad idea that I will soon regret. I
saw Jason looking like a mess, he was drunk
for sure, I wanted to get this over with to leave
as soon as possible.
Handed the cash to Jason. He grabbed it, put
it inside his apocket and turned to me with that
evil smirk that frightened me so much.
” Where have you been?”
“Jason you asked for help and I helped you,
please don’t ask me any questions. I need to
go now, please be safe and I really hope to
see you doing better.” I walked to the door and
just when my hand touched the door handle a
force pulled me by my hair form behind,
making me scream in pain and surprise.
I fell on the floor and like may times Jason
stated beating me. This time was not like the
others, this time he was more violent if that
even possible. I was very aware since the
moment I left this apartment that if Jason finds
me he will kill me. Then why did I come back
to this hell? I should’ve known better, this was
all a trap Jason set for me and I fell for it like
“You’re such a dum bitch, you really believed
me, you deserve this for being stupid and for
running away from me.”
He is kicking me while I’m still on the floor, I
can feel the unpleasant taste of blood in my
mouth. The pain running through my body gets
worse by each second. I’m crying and begging
my brother to stop but he just laughs, he’s
My body started to feel numb now the pain is
fading, I’m starting to see everything in a blur,
my eyes want to shut down, i know I can’t
keep them open for too long.
My eyes finally gave up, I see only black
I need to rest, I need light, I need peace. I
can’t continue with this, I’m mentally and
physically tired. God please take me.
I open my eyes and realized I’m in my old
apartment, what I’m I doing here and why am I
feeling this pain all over my body?
Then I remembered what happened, I probably
passed out as a result of Jason’s beating.
After looking around I realized he was gone
and I thanked heavens for that, now I should
go before he returns. Whimpering in pain I got
up from the floor, grabbed Adam’s paper work
and left the apartment.
Every step I took made my body vibrate in
pain. I decided to take a cab to Adam’s office
otherwise it’ll take me three hours to arrive, the
pain was too much, like never before.
I wanted to walk straight to the elevator door, I
now know the way to Adam’s office, but the
girl at the front desk stopped me.
“Excuse me ma’am, where are you going?”
“I’m going to Mr. McRoberts office.” Did I just
say a joke or something? Because this girl is
laughing in my face, I don’t get what’s so
“Do you have an appointment? I guess you
“I guess I don’t need an appointment to see
my husband, don’t you think?” Her face turned
pale and the smile that annoyed me so much
was now gone. “Do you still need to make an
appointment for me Ms?”
“N…. No …Mrs McRoberts, please come in
I walked into the elevator making the biggest
effort to hide the pain I’m feeling. The elevator
door finally opened in Adam’s floor and I
stepped out hoping to not find his PA, I still
remember how she tried to kick me out the
last time I was here. I don’t need that drama,
specially today. A sight of relief escaped my
mouth as I passed by her empty desk.
I took a deep breath at Adam’s office door that
made me whimper in reaction to the sharp
pain. I finally composed myself and knocked
at the door, no answer from the inside so I did
it again and nothing. Adam is probably at a
meeting or maybe having lunch, even better for
me, I’ll just place the file on his desk and
leave without been seen by him.
I opened the door and my heart fell to the
ground breaking in shreds. I saw Adam kissing
his assistant who was shirtless on her bra.
Simultaneously they looked towards the door,
Adam’s face reflected how surprised he was,
while his assistant showed me a smirk, now I
can say I hate that woman.
I didn’t know that to do, the pain my body was
feeling suddenly disappeared, the pain in my
heat took over. What can I do? I definitely can’t
stay here, I shouldn’t have come. I’m such an
idiot for thinking that Adam’s kisses meant
something to him, he’s clearly playing with me,
I’m one of his many toys. I hate myself for
falling right on his evil trap. I keep doing the
same thing over and over again, first I trusted
my brother and as we know that didn’t went
well, and now I trusted my heart to Adam and
this happen I deserve it for being naive enough
to think that everybody’s intentions are good.
Not knowing what to do or say I gave into my
instinct and just ran away as fast as my sore
What the hell is Emma doing here? She wasn’t
supposed to see this. Not a single word came
out of her mouth but her troubled green eyes
told me everything. I feel……guilty…. Really
Adam? GUILTY…. Why the fuck is that? She’s
not your real wife you don’t love her, actually
you hate her. This marriage is fake that’s why
you can sleep around with whoever you want.
She’s not Amy, I can’t feel guilty I haven’t done
When I saw her running away some force in
me pulled me to run after her, Priscilla called
my name but I didn’t care, all I wanted was to
reach Emma and make sure she was fine, I
wanted to tell her that what she just saw has
no meaning to me. Priscilla has no place in
my life, I don’t even know why I got involved
with my PA in the first place. All I know is that
after Amy’s death I became a mess and now
for the first time in two years I’m regretting it.
“Emma stop!” She ran faster now knowing I
was after her, but I was able to reach her in no
time, I grabbed her arm and turned her to face
“I said stop…. ”
“Please let me go I shouldn’t have come here.”
“Have to agree with you on that one, you
shouldn’t have come to my office.”
“Now please let me go home” I don’t know
why I did the opposite and tighten my hold on
her arm making her whimper.
“Adam please, you’re hurting me.” What’s
wrong with me? I quickly released my hold
from her arm.
“What are you doing here Emma?” “I…… I found this file at home, Martha
mentioned you meant to bring them to work
but left them forgotten at home and I decided
to come and give them to you in case they
were important. I’m sorry I’ll never come here
“You can come whenever you want, I promise
what you just saw means nothing to me.”
“Please don’t explain yourself to me I’m
nobody, I’m stupid, and dum, and ugly and-”
“Emma stop, you’re not one of those things, if
someone is stupid here that’s me.” I had to
stop her, it killed me to see her this broken. I
know I shouldn’t feel this way, but I’ll deal with
that later, now all I wanted was to comfort her
so I grabbed her hand . “We are going home
In the car all she did was look out the window,
sometimes she’ll look down and then back to
the window. I keep wondering what the hell got
me? I’m definitely going crazy, this woman is
making me do things and contradicting myself.
She has some strong power over me, this can’t
be I can’t be weak if I want to continue with
my revenge. I’m so mad at myself for been
weak and let this witch play with me, she’s
just manipulating me and I’m falling like a little
rabbit on a trap. I closed my fists to control
“Stop the car.” I order my driver.
“I’m sorry Sir. what did you just say?
“I said stop the car.” My tone was harsh,
Emma turned to look at me with the same
astonish look as my driver gave thru the
“But Sir we are in the middle of the street, do
you want me to go back then?”
“For heaven’s fuck, do you know how to follow
a simple order, I said stop the car.” Without a
word he obligated. Now I spoke to Emma.
“Oh you too, zero follow direction skills.”
“I know what you mean Adam, but we are not
home yet, why do you want us to get out of the
The nerve of this woman to talk to me like
that. That’s what I get for showing her my soft
“No darling WE are not getting out of this car,
“And how should I get home then?”
“You figure that out, not me, I have my car”
“I said OUT !!!” I shouted making her startle.
But it worked because she immediately opened
the door and stepped out of the car looking
confused and full of questions. I looked at my
driver, who was even more confused and
scared than Emma herself.
“Now drive home and don’t you dare question
I entered the house greeted Demi and asked
Martha to take her upstairs, I don’t want my
daughter to see me this mad. I walked back
and forth in my living room, I wonder what she
did, where she is now.
What is taking her so long ? I made sure to
leave her not that far away from the house, my
heart is beating so fast in my chest right now.
There’s no way I’m letting this woman mess
with me, enough is enough.
Adam is officially the weirdest person I know.
Maybe he’s bipolar, only that explain his
sudden changes of mood. What kind of
asshole leaves his wife in the middle of
nowhere while he goes home in his car?
Today is the worst day ever, after the day of
my dad’s accident. I have to hate this man for
bringing me into his life and playing with my
feelings like this. I want to cry, cry for he pain
I’m feeling physically and for the pain my heart
is feeling right now. I’m falling for a monster,
how can I have feelings for a person like
Oh Adam I hate that I love everything about
I’ve been walking for maybe ten minutes now, I
can see the mansion at the end of the street,
but the pain is unbearable and my steps are
slower and slower. Seeing everything in a blur I
reach the gate of the mansion, the guard looks
surprised to see me like this and walking but
he just opens the big gate and I walk in.
Everything around me is blurry and moving in
slow motion, I know I’m seconds away from
fainting I’ve never endure such pain. God
please allow me to reach my bed.
I knock the door and immediately Adam opens
it. He grabs my hand and pulls me up the
stairs I want to tell him to stop, that I can’t
walk that fast, that I’m in pain but my strength
is gone and I can’t manage to get a single
word out. I’m surprised to see him walking me
into the mysterious room he had forbidden
before. He stands in front of the beautiful big
painting of the woman with the red dress.
“You see her.” I nod, that’s all I’m able to do.
“She’s my wife Amy, she is the love of my life,
she was perfect, elegant, sophisticated,
educated, great wife and even greater mother.
Amy is dead and with her I buried my heart.
You will never be like her, you will never have
my heart, you will never be my wife, you might
be in paper, but in my heart is her and will
always be her, understood?”
I used my last breath to nod a yes.
“…… Understood.” I turned to look at her and
regret hit me like a punch on the face. Emma’s
face was pale, she was looking at me but her
sight was lost, and then I saw blood coming
out of the left side of her mouth, her eyes
closed and she fainted, thankfully I was able to
hold her avoiding her to hit the floor.
