I gathered the guys in my living room the very next day. I handed them each a cold beer before taking a seat, opposite them.
"So, what's up man, are we on for the trip or not?" Kevin eagerly asked before drinking from his beer.
"No, because someone couldn't keep their mouth shut!" I answered and dart my eyes on Tim. He gulp and drank his beer as a diversion.
"And, my mother is coming over this weekend," I finished and my friends' faces turned sympathetic. They knew my mother was a very obnoxious woman who always wanted things her way or no way at all. She thought she was always right and her favorite line was 'mother knows best'.
"Christian, I'm so sorry. I left a message and Audrey must have listen to it. I just wanted to know if we were taking your private jet or mine," Tim explained.
"Look, it's fine. That's Audrey for you. We could always do the Caribbean trip an
Sacha's POVThe very next morning, I was rather nervous about packing and moving out of Remy's place but I knew I couldn't stay with her forever and this was for the better.I collected some large garbage bags from her kitchen and started throwing all my belongings, along with Judy's, into them. At mid-day, Remy came home and saw me packing."Sach! What's going on?""Hi, I'm..ah...Judy and I are moving out but I want to thank you for having the both of us here," I told her."Moving out? To go where?""I found a place.""What place? Where? Why didn't you say anything to me about this before?""Remy, I just got the place, and it's for the better. You're always telling me that I can't sleep on your couch forever.""I know you can't but this is too sudden. Is this about the stuff? Sacha, I'll give you back everything, I swear."
Sacha's POVIt was the start of another week and Judy and I were both enjoying our new environment. I got her prepped extra early for school but that wasn't necessary since the school bus picked her up right in front of the front entrance to our gate.After she had left, I decided to invite my best friend over. I didn't want her to get the wrong impression of me no longer wanting anything to do with her. I'll always be appreciative for what she had done when I needed her the most.Within the time span of three hours, Remy showed up at my new place. I had already prepared hot wings, one of her favorites, and I put on a movie on the seventy inch flat screen television in the living-room."Well, this is certainly nice," Remy said as she walked in and started looking around."Thanks," I responded and handed her a plate."So, you'll soon have your first million dollars?" She sat down.
Christian's POV*LOUD SLAM*I was in my home office when the doors slammed in rather loudly, disturbing me from the task at hand. I looked up and saw my 'beloved fiancee' with a nasty scowl on her face."What is it this time?" I asked, turning my eyes back to my computer but turning a listening ear to her."I cannot believe you would stoop that low, Christian!" she yelled. I looked at her for a quick second, just before she walked back out of the room.'What the hell! Does she actually know about what I've been doing with Sacha? No, it can't be. There's no way she could find out so soon.'Then I heard the mellow greeting of my mother's voice, calling from downstairs. I got up and met her in the foyer."Hello mother, so you've finally decided to come," I greeted her back."Oh Christian, I'm here for one reason and one reason only. Audrey told me that
Sacha's POVChristian's eyes were locked on me and by the look on his face, he wasn't too happy with seeing me on Josh's arm."Josh, can you do me a quick favor? I've left my car windows up in the VIP parking lot," Christian told Josh who instantly caught the car keys."Say no more, boss. Sacha, would you...""Leave Sacha here, I'll be keeping her company," Christian cut it. Josh nodded like a child and left me standing in front of Christian like a helpless infant zebra about to get mauled by a lion."Why are you here with him?" he asked me now."What's wrong with that?" I found myself rudely asking. Christian's eyes blazed with anger and his nostrils flared as if steam was passing through them."You have some nerves Christian. I haven't heard from you in days. You've been ignoring me completely but when I show up with a guy, you're getting angry at me."<
Sacha's POVThis was pure madness. My hands were shaking from fright and beads of sweat appeared on my forehead. I looked around, wondering if the person who sent the picture was still looking at me to see what I'll do next.I went inside, armed the security system and texted Christian to tell him what had happened. He didn't like the sound of it and he assured me that he'll be by later on tonight.Someone definitely knows and have proof of us in bed together."What if those pictures hit the media, Christian?" I asked when he indeed came over. He was looking at the picture. The angle was obvious. The picture was taken from outside the balcony to my bedroom. The waterfall sliding door was doing a poor job of hiding us and the curtains were of white mesh.As the idea crossed my mind, I changed the curtains to a thick red velvet and I made sure the doors were locked."Sacha, it's
Four Weeks Later*Christian's POV"Man, this is eating you up alive. You look terrible," Tim said when he walked into my office and handed me a cup of coffee. I sipped from its content slowly."You have no idea how hard it is. There's something about this girl that I can't get out of my head," I told him."Ah, Christian, you're going soft on me.""No but she's just different than the others. I'm tempted to pick up the phone and call her. With the others, I couldn't wait to block their numbers. Sacha Rish is one of a kind, man.""So, you're missing her? Why not just call her for real?""I can't. I have a wedding to focus on. As a matter of fact, I have to go pick up my suit. You're in charge." With that, I peeled myself off the chair and we walked out of my office.I got into my car and drove to the boutique where my pitch white perfect suit was wait
Sacha's POVRemy turned towards me with fear in her eyes. I was the last person she was expecting to run into and when the van pulled away with a loud screech, she had no other choice but to face me."Remy, how could you? How could you betray me like this?!" I yelled at the top of my lungs."I didn't swear my loyalty to you!" she had the audacity to snap back at me. The center of my palms heated up because it was taking every nerves in my body to not hit my former best friend."You're a snake," I told her."Oh, so now I'm the snake because I'm making my money moves.""So that's what this is about, huh, money?""You know what is your problem Sacha, you think you're so perfect and such a saint but when Christian came along and offered you money in exchange of sex, you had no problem spreading your legs for him.I may be a snake, but at least I don't s
Christian's POVI turned off my cellphone, avoiding the call distractions. It was the rehearsal dinner. Friends and family had gathered to congratulate Audrey and I, while stuffing their faces with food.I wasn't happy about being here, but my guilt wouldn't let me leave. I had cheated on Audrey countless times just to accomplish a silly goal I had up with my friends since in high school, but that silly goal led me to a wonderful young woman. A young woman I couldn't get out of my head."Wouldn't you agree, Christian?" my mother asked."Huh?" I asked, shaking myself from my thoughts."To honeymoon in Paris," she answered."Umm, yeah, sure, why not?" I was at a lost. My head wasn't in the dinner. Audrey's hand found mine underneath the table. She was sitting right next to me."Are you okay?" she asked in a whisper."I'm great," I lied.
