The smile that left my eyes episode 42 & 43

Tale of Veronica Hathaway




I shouldn’t have done that . But I had no choice ,it was nothing but a mistake . I shouldn’t have sl@pped William that way . He wouldn’t have hit Kyle for no reason.

” what did you say to him? ” I asked Kyle but before he could answer ,I ran off leaving him and Coco behind .
William wait “I say that I run after him but he refused to listen to me as I got into his car and drove off.
William she might be a very violent person sometimes but it won’t we have beating up Kyle that way unless he said something to trigger his anger.

I boarded a taxi and went back home. I saw William in the bar section of the house wearing his joggers and black tang t©p that by the way makes him look so h0t. His man b©dy was well sculpted, and the thin white chain on his n£¢k with a pendant like a small keyholder makes him look so h0t. His a true definition of beauty. All this, all this makes it h@rd for me to believe he actually likes me . Don’t get me wrong guys ,I don’t like him and yea am also very beautiful, but he still looks way better than me and because of him I look down on myself..I feel a girl like coco is actually what suits a guy like him

“William ” I called his name and he slowly lowered the wine gl@ss he was holding and raised his head to look at me. “William ” I called his name again as I walked very fast towards him before he walks out on me like he did earlier.

“William am sorry …I didn’t mean to do that, it was nothing but a mistake…I am sorry ” I apologized but he totally ignored me like I wasn’t even there at all. ” William plea-se ” I said as I placed my hand on his shoulder while he gulped down his liquor and slammed the gl@ss on the table but not h@rd enough for the wine gl@ss to break.

“William will you atleast look at me ” it was really getting Annoying, the way he ignored me totally like I wasn’t even there. It is so annoying and I do not want that.

“William look at me ” I said as I placed my hands on his face and turned him to look at me “I swear I didn’t mean to sorry ”

He gently gr@bb£d my wrist and used it to pu-ll my hands down from his face and said while holding my hands”Chelsea I like you so much that I can’t even get angry at you even if I wanted to ” he said while I smiled . ” and I also care about you enough to give you the freedom you have always wanted ” the smile on my face immediately disappeared as I arched my brow.

“W…w..what do you mean by that ?” I asked

He let go of my hand as he picked up a do¢vment from the table..” remember you gave me this divorce papers few weeks ago….well I have finally done what you want me to ,I signed it ..all it needs now is your signature and once it’s submitted to the court ,we are no longer couples..” he said as he walked past me while tears ran down my eyes and I wiped it off instantly. This tears, it feels feels like I have never done it before my entire life…I cant let William do this….who is he to think he can just walk out of this relationsh!p…it is not over until I say it is…I have a very big ego and I won’t let William hurt it like this ..” William you can’t just quit a relationsh!pbecause of a minor Issue like this ” I said and he st©pped walking and turned to face me

“Isn’t this what you want ?”

“Ofcourse this is what I want ,but 30 days is not yet over..till then I am not signing this .I still haven’t forgiven you for lying to me ,so let make this fair .. I will forgive you for lying to me, then you Will forgive me for hitting you ”

“You think am a liar?” William asked with a sm-irk

“I know you a liar”

“Okay agreed …but let me ask you a question Veronica ” he said as he walked towards me and my heart started beating very fast again. I hate this stupid heart.

“S…s…s…sure go ahead”

“If I leave you ,will you miss me?” He asked and I stared at him for awhile

Will I miss him

Ofcourse I will

I never thought I would but I will

Not because I like him, but because I have gotten so used to him.

“No I won’t ” I answered as I looked away from it

“plea-se look me in the eye while you answer my questions ” William said and I looked at him boldly in the eye

“No ,I won’t leaving me makes no difference to me ”

“And when you see me ,what do you feel ?”

I am happy when I see him

It like I want to have him around all the time see his face

But trust me when I say no feelings involved

“Nothing ” I answered as I ti-ght£ñed my fist

“And when I t©uçh you what do you feel ?”

“NOTHING WILLIAM!” I shouted trying my best to hide the fact that my br@in goes dead when he t©uçhes me .. I am trying to hide the fact that his t©uçh makes me feel like I am in my own universe, just me and him ..alone in the whole world ..but I know I have no feelings for him ” I FEEL NOTHING WHEN YOU TO t©uçh ABSOLUTELY NOTHING..I FEEL nothing ” I muttered the nothing as I looked down unable to look in his eye. I raised my head again and looked his eye bodly ” I feel nothing ” I said almost sounded like I was whispering.

“Ok ” William said as he shrugged “and you call me a liar ,when you are a big one ” he said as he walked up the stairs

I sat on the chair as tears ran freely down my cheek

William is right

I am a dirty liar .. A liar ..I have lied about everything..why do I keep fighting this ..why?

No I am not liar

William is the reallyiar

I don’t like William..

I do not want to like William

I really do not want to like William

I don’t want to


I really do not un-derstand this feelings, am I really lying to myself …..I keep trying to convince myself that I do not like William but it like my heart says a whole new different thing can I really like William. …do I really like william?

No I really cannot think about that right now. ..I just have to know while William picked a fight with Kyle. ..

I wiped my tears and went to my room,.I couldn’t sleep the entire night, I just kept on thinking about William non st©p. And now it quite strange how the thought of him leaving me scares me so much . I really do not want William to leave me ever 😳 .what am I saying?
I must be crazy.

I walked into the restaurant the next morning and as usual kyle welcomed me with a big smile on my face . He had a hvge bruise on his face due to the way William beat him up yesterday and now he is acting all casual like he wasn’t involved in a fist fight with my husband the previous day .I wasn’t entirely free with Kyle like I use to be ,but still I decided not to raise the t©pic, I mean it way too early for that.

Later in the evening during closing hours ,I decided to bring up the t©pic and talk to kyle about it .

“Ummm kyle can I talk to you? ” I asked as I ran my hand throu-gh my hair

“About what? ” he asked while I sighed and said “about what happened yesterday. know you and Williams little fist fight ”

“Seriously Veronica, do we really have to talk about that ?”

“Ummm yeah we need to….I want to know how ..I mean why you got into a fist fight with my will..with my husband ?”

“What if I really do not want to talk about that”

“I still demand an explanation….I want to talk about it cause that little action is about to ruin my marriage kyle….I sl@pped William because of you and that means a lot. least I deserve to know if sl@pping him was really worth it ”

Kyle sighed and said “I provoked him”

“What ! Why would you do that? ” I asked looking really confused

“Well Chelsea it obvious your little marriage is fake…but despite the fact that it is arranged in think it clear to me that you two love each other ”

“What why do you think that ….I mean William doesn’t love me and I do not love him either ”

“Chelsea yesterday the both of you were extremely jealous of each other’s p@rtner and you call that not love ”

“Kyle you really are misun-derstanding me ”

“Oh Zi-p it Chelsea…..there’s no misun-derstanding anywhere….I told William to continue doing what he is doing with cocoa you know ma-king you jealous and when he finally ruins everything, I will be the shoulder you come to for support ”

“Jeez why did you say that?”

“Just a little test and he p@ssed it by punching me ….the love you have for him ,I can clearly see that in your eyes but William is really h@rd to study you know….you are an open book but he is not so I decided to test him and when he hit me ,I could see the possession in his eyes, the love and fear of loosing you ”

“Did William pay you say this cause have never seen all this you talking about in his eyes ”

“You have ,you just decided to ignore it cause you felt you didnt need it ”

“No that not it kyle”

“That definitely it”

“Okay …maybe you mean well but this little action of yours is about to ruin my marriage you know….. ”

“Well it doesn’t have to be ruined ”


“You can save it ”

“How how can I do that, he is really upset with me right now ”

He took a sip of his coffee and said “tell him what he wants to hear”

“Which is ?” I asked with a puzzled expression

“Tell him how you really feel about him ….William really likes you and a trivial matter like this can’t end your marriage. …well it might cause he is really mad at you right now ,but you can always make that right ”

“William thinks I hate him and I want it to stay that way and beside that I have always wanted divorce. ..maybe this is my dream coming throu-gh ”

“You really are one stubborn woman ,I wonder how your husband could put up with you for so long …what a patient man ” he said with a smile on his face

“Look kyle cut the cra-p okay …..I do not like William ”

“Then why are you so worried about your marriage failing ?”

“Well because. ..I. ..i….I don’t know ,I am confused okay”

“Chelsea if you feel nothing towards him then why were you so jealous about him being with coco?”

“Well. …that because ”

“You have no excuse …..I advice you do what is right before it too late okay ” he said

“I can’t. …I really do not want to fall in love …you don’t un-derstand kyle”

“What wrong ? Are you philophobic? ” he asked while I shaked my head signifying no

“I am not ”

“Then what the hold up?” He asked

“I just feel all my life kyle I have been hurt continously and the thought of falling in love with the wrong person scares….I am just afraid to get hurt that all kyle ”

“I said it you philophobic ”

“Cut the cra-p dude ”

“Okay okay ….but I personally believe you should not hang on to your past seriously don’t. …..your future is all that matters now and even though you deny it continously i know you like him and st©p being a dumbo and save your marriage ” he said as he took a sip of his coffee and smiled “do what your heart tells you to ….this might sound really weird but for once st©p using your and use your heart ”

I stood on my feet and walked out of the restaurant. ..what is he saying? What is kyle saying. ……can I really like William ….do I peharps feel the same way ….I remembered the first day we saw each other at the gospital…I remembered all our fight …I remembered the first day we agreed to be friends….I remembered the first time he k!$$£d me …my heart was doing it again …it was beating really Fast…..why did it take me so long to realise this …i do feel the same way ….it also like william. ..i do like william. I really do like william and he has to know this


I walked into the mansion and I saw William sitting down on the couch talking to his lawyer and he really doesn’t look happy

Well he never looks happy cause he always wears this cold and kind of grumpy look but that just his normal expression but this time it different. …he is really not happy .

“Look she is here ” William said as he stood on his feet with his lawyer Mr Albert

“What going on?”I asked

“Mr Albert is here to submit the divorce papers. …have you signed it ?” He asked

“Submit…..why ..h..wh?” I said as tears welled up my eye but I was doing a great job of holding it back ….I really was preventing it from rolling down my cheek

“You should be happy Veronica, I am giving you what I want ”


“Then what do you want Chelsea. ….tell me what you want ”

“You wanna know what I want uhn?…..”I di-pped my hand into my bag ,brou-ght out the divorce papers and tore it …William di-pped his hand in his pocket and asked “What are you doing? ”

“That what I want William ”

“Which is?”

I sighed and walked towards him until I was only one feet away from him ….I took a de-ep breath and gathered every last bit of courage to say

“You William. …you are what I want ”
