Four Weeks Later*
"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.
Christian's POV"YOU GOT HER WHAT!" Tim yelled when I told him about Sacha being pregnant. We were having coffee in my office as usual. It was Monday and I still didn't have the courage of telling Audrey the truth which was pathetic of me because I at least owed her that."Man, this is messed up and disastrous on your path. And you told her to go through with the pregnancy? What would happen when Audrey and your mother hears this, bro?" he went on."You do realized that Audrey and my mother aren't the boss of me, right?" I asked him as I twirled the cup of coffee on the desk."What did I miss?" Kevin walked into the room."Mr.'Ding a Ling' here got the black girl pregnant," Tim answered."Why you got to say her complexion instead of just using her name. Her name is Sacha. Not the 'black girl'. I narrowed my eyes and glared at him."I'm sorry. I'm sorry," he quickly
Sacha's POVAfter being discharged from the hospital a day ago, I was sitting on my bed, in my bedroom, pondering on how my life had taken a drastic turn. I wasn't ordinary Sacha Rish three months ago. I had over one million dollars in the bank - with interest and previous savings from my job, and I was pregnant with a billionaire's baby.A small wave of excitement rushed through me as I pictured myself being a family with Christian, raising our child and Judy together, but that excitement faded away when a knock came to the door downstairs.I picked myself up and went to open the door. In walked Christian's fiancee with another woman whom I assumed was Christian's mother since she held the same emerald green eyes like his."Can I help you ladies?" I asked, turning around to face them.They laughed in unison."So this is the one who has been screwing my son?""That'
Sacha's POV"Remy? What are you doing here and what's the matter?""Sacha, my mom got into an accident last night. She died this morning," she answered and broke down in extreme tears. My heart ached for her and I pitied her because I too knew what it felt like to lose a parent unexpectedly to a vehicular accident.I wrapped her into my arms, comforting her as she cried against my small chest."Sacha, I'm so sorry. I'm sorry for throwing away our friendship. I'm...I'm...I'm so stupid. I don't know what I was thinking. I was so jealous of you that I...I....oh my god.""Hey, just cry it out. I'm here for you." Tears filled my eyes too.I guided her indoors and made her a cup of tea. I sat next to her, circling my arm around her neck as she sobbed lightly and drink at the same time.Although what Remy had done was unbelievable, I couldn't turn her away now that she nee
Sacha's POVI allowed Remy to crash at Christian's summer house while she grieved and I silently coped with the heartbreak from not having Christian in my life.It was Saturday. The day of Christian's wedding. There was to be a live stream on the whole event and I had logged on to view it. I wanted what was best for him and to see him happy even if that meant seeing him married someone else."Hey, good morning," Remy greeted me when she saw me sitting by myself on the patio close to the outdoor swimming pool."Good morning," I answered and tried hard to cover the sorrow in my voice."What are you doing?""Oh, umm, watching the early preparation for the wedding.""What? Sacha, no. You can't be doing this to yourself," she said and took my cellphone away and turned off the live streaming."Christian made his choice. You just need to accept that and mo
Sacha's POV "Christian? What are you doing here?" I was shell-shocked. He was there, right in front of me, smiling but panting as if he had been running laps around the world. "You." He came closer to me, our lips barely an inch apart. He cupped my face between the palms of his hands and looked right into my eyes. "You're all I need. I needed you before. I need you right now. I need you forever," he whispered in my ear before kissing me on the cheek. "But... But... Your wedding, your fiancee," I stuttered. "That is over with. All I need is you Sacha. I want to have a family with you. I want us to to raise our child together and I want to be there for Judy. She's a great kid." Happy tears slipped out my eyes. I must be dreaming. I've been too obsessed with Christian Alexander that it reaches to a point where I was imagining him confessing his feelings to me on the
Sacha's POVI simultaneously glanced at the clock again and tried Christian's number for the thousandth time.It wasn't like him to ignore my calls when he was out with my little sister."Hey," Remy said, walking into the living room area to join me."Hi," I answered coldly."What's wrong?" she asked, looking as I removed the phone from my ear to no avail of getting Christian."Something is wrong. I have this pit feeling that something is wrong with Christian and my sister.""Oh, come on Sacha. He took her to the doctor. What can possibly go wrong? His phone is probably in the car and he's with Judy, spoiling her with shopping and stuff.""No. Judy isn't well. I don't believe he'll take her shopping after the doctor.""Well, maybe they went to get a bite to eat. Don't worry yourself too muc
