"Years ago while I was in year 3, I– I was forced to party out with my friends on my birthday. Yes, I was happy, I couldn't resist because it was my birthday, and I want the people around me to be happy because of me. This is where this got me, I care about people's happiness without thinking about what I really want. I never like the decision of going clubbing, but I go anyway," I lowered on the ground, and tugged my hair as tears kept flowing down. "I resisted at first, but I was confused by them. My desire was to make them happy, right. They were, I fulfilled their dreams. Their mood lightened up that night. Just this night then never will I go again, I told them that, then they agreed immediately. Of course, that was my first and last night I went clubbing. Neither will I be forced to drink, Nor will I be forced to dance. They had no problem with all my conditions, all they cared about was for me to go with them," I smiled to myself and gasped out. "
Chapter thirteen.~~"How can you be this heartless Loveth!" Ciara said in tears.I smiled and cut in whatever Arnold was about to say, then I sat closed to my mother on the cold tiled floor. I raised up a leg to reach my elbow. "A year later. Even after the whole support mum gave me, I still couldn't help it, but to feel depressed. I can't do without having a nightmare every night. I kept missing my parents' every day. I couldn't help the loneliness, so I called mum and told her I have decided to travel out of the country, to make myself happy, to get my mind straight. I just wanna be happy. I don't wanna give up on life anymore, dad must be proud of his daughter wherever he is. I wanna be the strong girl dad always wanted me to be. She agreed with my decision and supported me with it. I got to the states, I thought of everything possible to be happy. So I decided to keep going out to catch fun. Then I met this beautiful angels," I stretched my ha
Chapter fourteen.***ARNOLD's.I got home, in a dark room, looking paled that night. Loveth ran to me when she saw me in that state."Hey bro! What is wrong? Look at your hands, you are injured. Why do you have blood stains on your shirts?" Loveth asked curiously."We are leaving for USA tomorrow. I will book the ticket early morning tomorrow, so pack your bags." I ignored her questions and walked away from her."What! USA... Ticket.. Money.. Where... I don't understand anything bro. Where did you get the money from?" She came after me."You don't need to understand anything. Where I got the money from is non of your concern. All I know is that – I didn't steal the money. Just pack our bags, I will leave early tomorrow to take care of other things .""This is just too sudden, you didn't even tell me anything about your plans,
Chapter fifteen.***It had been two weeks after Arnold visits to my home, but it felt like the incident had happened for two months now. The revealed secret had caused positive and sudden changes in my life. I had started working as one of the managing director in my dad's company. I have tried my very best to become a happy and interactive person, but it seem I still haven't gotten over Arnold yet. I might be angry at him, but I also felt so attached towards him, just like he never stop chasing me. It is in Arnold's blood to never stop stalking me. Ahh! I gasped out. My hearts want to forgive him, but my head keep telling me I would be making the biggest mistakes of my life. I don't know what do. If I don't want to have him anymore, why do I feel the need of making him jealous? Well, if he can play pranks to get my attention, just like he used to do. I wrapped my arms around my chest. Why can't I? I shrugged and returned the last batched o
Chapter sixteen.••• A cab causing a blaring noise drove across me, and whined down the glass at the passenger's window. A young dark guy in his thirties stretched his head out of the window and told me he was from Arnold. He opened the car's door, then I hopped into the car, resting my head on the car's head rest. We arrived at the restaurant I and the ladies planned to eat. I moved in through the sliding door, then walked pass a couple, which I guess they were, giggling and leering at each other romantically. I sighted the girls at the arranged table, at the centre of the restaurant. To my wonder, I saw victor sat with them, looking around the restaurant, as if searching for someone."Hey! Welcome love." Ciara hollered at me with a large smile on her face."How come you are here victor?" I adjusted the empty sit beside Amy to seat down.
Chapter seventeen.***"Look at this dress Monica. I'm sure it's going to suit you well." Victor Unhanged a long - straight -pattern- gown in a gold form."This? Are you sure? This is not my taste." I glared at him, then to the dress, gazing at it like it is a rag or something."Come on. Just go try it on–" he handed it over to me, but didn't let it go. "Monica, are you okay? You have been feeling way to empty since you spoke to that lady. Though, I don't what you guys talked about, but you look stressed out.""Oh– It is –it nothing like that. I –will go try this on." I faked a smile and walked out of his sight."Miss –Pls show her to the dressing room." Victor called out to the attendant behind me. On getting there, I saw Arnold sat on a sofa closed to the dressing room, with his head crooked as he went through the magazine. The
ARNOLD'sI laid on the white sofa in the living room, with my laptop placed in front of me, applying for my usual contracts online. Then, I caught a glimpse of Loveth walked up to me in an high waist - blue jeans, and a top in tube form, dropping her butt on a sitter couch."Hey bro!""Hmm! What is it?" Still concentrating on my system."I guess you've booked the ticket?"Ye–ss!" I stressed out the word."I'm curious bro–wh–" she cleared a throat, which I knew very well it was a fake one."About what? I've booked the ticket. Anything else?""Why have you decided to go back to the states?" She pursed and said further; "I mean, you are here for Monica,
MONICA's.The girls rushed down to me believing I would give them the good news."How did it go Monica? I believe you guys are now back together, but he should be here with you." Ciara peeked behind me. "Where is he?"I burst out in to tears and knelt down unconsciously on the floor as the tears rushed down my cheeks. "I have lost him forever, I lost Arnold. Just a night has ruined my whole life, just a night has made me lost my first love, just a night made me lost everything, just everything guys.""Hey!" Olivia knelt in front of me and comforted me in her embraced. "You haven't lose it all Monica and you won't lost it all.""I have Olivia. I have," I pulled myself out of h
ARNOLD's.I and Loveth arrived at Monica's home few minutes later. There faces was painted with surprises as we moved more closer to them. They blurted out everything that has happened to me, before I was able to speak up. I was about going up through the stairs, when I met victor wrapped his arm around his chest with touches of confusion and curiosity on his face, blocking my path to stop me from going up. He never hesitated to stop being curious as he threw questions at me, expecting an explanation. All I care about now is Monica, I hope she is okay. I trust she wouldn't make mistakes, she is a strong lady. I believe she won't...That was the thought that kept running in my head as I ignored Victor questions making a way up for myself. They escorted me to her room, then I banged the door on getting there, but no response."Can
