"Get up, just get up. I, don't want to be late today as well, Vic." Yes, it's me, Jennifer Oxford, who has made a habit of arriving late everywhere she goes. Not because I enjoy being late, but because my best friend enjoys sleeping.
But I still don't want to be late today, like come on guys, today is my graduation ceremony, one of the most important days of my life, and I'm not sure why I'm not as happy as my other classmates.
Maybe it's because I don't have anyone by my side; it's not that I'm unhappy; I have Vic, who is like a sister to me, if not more, than my own sister, but I can't change the fact that I don't have any family.
I recall the day my parents died in a car accident, leaving me and my older sister, Ciala, in this lonely and frightening world. I was only 16 years old at the time, and Ciala was 18 years old. My eyes welled up with tears just thinking about that day.
And it didn't stop there. I thought maybe my luck wasn't with me because my one and only sister, whom I adored, abandoned me, claiming I was the cause of our parents' deaths. I don't know how so many years have passed, but now I'm 22 and about to graduate, but at this point in my life, no one is with me, except for one person, Vic.
"Vic. Vic, yeah," How can I forget that today is our graduation ceremony and Vic is still sleeping?
"Vic, if you don't get up, I'm going to leave you behind," I warned. As soon as she heard this, she jumped out of bed.
"Haha, I knew it would definitely work," I said, making a funny face, and she throws a pillow in my direction because she doesn't like leaving behind alone on her own. Guess why? It's obvious because she's a complete slacker.
So she crawled out of the bed quickly, took a shower, and started getting ready for the ceremony. I was actually staring at her while she was applying a lot of makeup, which means a lot of makeup on her face.
She noticed me several times before saying, "Jenn, just stop staring at me; it's my right to put on makeup today."
I started laughing at her comment because she always had a lot of makeup on her face. She noticed my reaction and said, "Yeah, yeah whatever, at least I'm not someone like you, who has never done makeup ever."
We both burst out laughing because it's true; I've never worn makeup on my face except for a baby pink lipstick because I adore that pink shade.
We left for our destination once she had finished with all of those unimportant things.
We took pictures with our few friends and classmates after the ostensibly boring ceremony. "I know, he likes you," Vic stated flatly.
"Come on Vic, he's just a friend of mine like you," I replied, blushing slightly because I knew it was true, he has feelings for me, and I like him a little bit as well. After all, he was my first male friend, so he was particularly close to me.
Edward was the most well-known student in our class, if not the entire college. He has blond hair, green eyes that look like the entire forest is in his eyes, a full broad chest, and those build muscles, Oh my God, just don't talk about it.
Vic immediately noted my reaction, and have a big sigh. "girl, are you for real? Because all you have to say is, I like you, Edward" I never had a chance to answer her as she suddenly spoke again, "Oh My God, he's coming in our direction" the moment, he was in front of us he said, " Hey Girls! what's up?
Vic sighed as soon as he noticed my reaction. "girl, are you serious? Because all you have to say is, I like you, Edward" I never had a chance to respond as she abruptly spoke again, "Oh My God, he's coming in our direction" the moment he was in front of us, he said, "Hey Girls! what's up?
He shook Vic's hand, hugged me tightly, and we began talking when some girls approached and began clinging to Edward, saying, "We will miss you, Edward." And rolled my eyes at their clumsy performance.
"See you again, my parents are waiting for me," Edward said, feeling awkward. With that, he excused himself from those strange type girls and kissed my forehead gently, saying, "goodbye, and yeah, don't forget that it's my birthday next month and you have to come," and then he left.
When Edward kissed my brow, all the girls were staring at me with daggers in their eyes, and I ignored them as I had done the previous days.
"Let's go have a party, babe!" Vic said, both hands joyfully waving in the air. "All right, girl, let's go and have a party!" I said, throwing myself on her in a dancing motion
Reaching home, I went to my closet and chose a small black dress with a backless neckline that ended at my mid-thighs for the party tonight.
I wore my high heels and applied dark makeup with blood-red lipstick for the first time, and I looked great in this dress. 'Wow, Jennifer, makeup looks great on you; why don't you start using it on your face right away?'
When Vic was ready, she came out of her room and looked at me; I could tell she was in shock just by looking at my face. After regaining her senses, she said, "I'm going to sue you for being so beautiful."
We were just staring at each other at first because of her compliment, but after a while, we both burst out laughing.
And when we were done laughing, I called uber, and after a short wait, the car arrived, and we both left for our destination.
BECAUSE ENGLISH IS MY SECOND LANGUAGE, PLEASE IGNORE ANY GRAMMAR OR SPELLING ERRORS. THANKS! CHAPTER TWO WILLIAM POV, I was exhausted from the day's work and needed to rest. When I got a call from a friend, he said, "Let's meet at the club, I have a gorgeous gift for you." and then hung up. I smirked because I knew what the gift would be, and headed straight to the club. After getting a call from a friend, or should I say best friend, about a gift, I couldn't wait and went to the club because I was too tired and needed some flavour in my life. Roman was my childhood friend, so he was the first or last person in my life who knew me well. He, like me, was the owner of a large corporation. He was like a brother to me, except when he turned annoying and I wanted to slap him really hard, but I didn't. I walked into the club and found Roman sitting w
BECAUSE ENGLISH IS MY SECOND LANGUAGE, PLEASE IGNORE ANY GRAMMAR OR SPELLING ERRORS. THANKS! CHAPTER THREE It was the first time in nearly my entire life that someone has piqued my interest, but all I got in return was a SLAP. I mean, are you serious? I was taken aback; I had never been subjected to so many insults in my life. I was so humiliated in front of so many people that I was about to punish her horribly so that she would remember my face for the rest of her life and who I am and what I am capable of? But Roman gripped my wrist tightly, leaned in close to my ear, and whispered, "Everyone's watching, just let her go or else there'll be a big scandal, and you know what I mean." But before I let go of her arm, I squeezed it so hard that it turned white. I could see the pain in her eyes, but it was nothing compared to my insult, so I promised myself that I would get my revenge soon an
CHAPTER FOUR JEN POV, A few days passed welluntil I learned of the news. I was watching YouTube news about me, but it wasn't the worst part; the worst part was the comments. Hell yea... All of them wereabout me, such as criticizing my beauty or my idiocy, but why only me? What about that psycho man, I mean? I snatched out of my thoughts at Vic's call, "Vic, you have amazing timing. So, is there a specific reason?" I exploded. "ARE YOU SERIOUS, GIRL?" she yelled. "Vic, nowwhat this is supposed to mean?" I pretended to be stupid. "Babe, you're all over the Internet, news, YouTube, and soon everywhere," she exclaimed, excitedly. "So, what is it that has you so riled up? I'm dying here, and my one and only best buddy is making jokes about me. Great Vic!" I remarked sarcastically. "Okay, okay, I'm sorry,happy now? But what are you going to do about it
CHAPTER FIVE WILLIAM POV, I was lounging on the couch in my penthouse when my father called. "Yes, father?" I picked up the phone, thinking, "Here we go again." "Home right now," he said as he hung up the phone. Now I was at my parents' house, and my father was yelling at me until he tossed the newspaper in my face and asked, "Who's that girl?" "Wow, that was quick," was the only thing that came out of my mouth. "Handle this filth or I'll take over your position as CEO of a corporation. Understand?" I exited the house after saying, "Understood." It was the first time my father had chastised me, and I couldn't afford it. I had virtually spent half of my life establishing this company, and I couldn't bear the thought of losing what I had now. I dialed my assistant's number and asked her for information on that goddamn girl. And when I found out everything I could
English is my second language, so please ignore if you find grammar or other mistakes. THANKS! CHAPTER SIXHe threw some paper towards me, on my face, and told me to sign them. I was wondering what are these papers about, what to do with me, and why I have to sign them.I asked, "what's written in these papers and why I have to sign them?""Just take your time babe, and read them on your own," he said and went out of the room but this time he didn't lock the door.I picked up the papers from the floor and for some reason, I had the feeling my fate was literally typed out for me on these sheets of paper.Instead of torturing myself by thinking about what could be typed out, I closed my eyes and took a deep breath before looking at the papers.______________________________________________P
CHAPTER SEVEN "Vic? Don't touch her, you motherfuckers, leave her alone. Keep your filthy hands away from her "I was yelling. Vic was knocked out. "Now, now, now... What are you going to do, sign the papers or lose your friend?" "Just leave her alone, I'll do whatever you say," were the only words that came out of my mouth. "Take her back to her apartment and don't tell her anything about today; pretend like nothing happened," he told his men as he led Vic away unconscious. "Now listen to me, and listen very carefully, Jennifer Oxford; you're going to do what I'm telling you to do, or you're going to lose the one and only thing you hold dear to your heart." With that, he handed the papers over to me for the final review, but time was running out and I didn't want him around, so I asked for a pen. I slammed the papers on the table behind him after signing them. "I need some alone time in my own apartmen
CHAPTER EIGHT "No! I can't take it, and it's yours; if you don't wear it, you might catch a cold, which I don't want." I told him standingand takingoff his jacket, but his hand stopped me. "No, you need it more than I do, and by the way, if I don't do it, I won't be considered a gentleman," he smirked. "Thank you," was all I could say in response. "No problem, and if you don't mind my asking, why are you sitting by yourself in the middle of the night in this pouring rain?" "Umm..." I thought for a moment before telling him. Should I tell him or keep it a secret? After all, he's a nice guy, and what harm can it do if I tell him? Okay, not the entire story. Maybe a little bit won't hurt much, and he comes from a wealthy family, so he might be able to assist me in dealing with this situation. Yeah... Right now, it's the best situation. I was about to tell him when my inner voice interrupted me. Ar
CHAPTER NINE WILLIAM POV, When she walked away, I was overjoyed with my victory. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be at first, but she eventually accepted her defeat; now she'll never try to mess up my business again and will never forget her place, "Tch,tch, tch...little kitty." I called Roman and told him to set up a press conference as soon as possible because I just wanted to put an end to all the scandals surrounding me and see my adversary defeated, huh they wanted to play with fire. Okay, now I'll show them the true fire that they all awoke in me. JENNIFER POV, "JENNIFER!!" I heard Vic's voice, and she was pounding on my door like a lunatic. I groan to myself and roll out of my tiny bed, which wasn't as comfortable as a king-sized bed. "JENNIFER," she said once more. I yelled, "Coming!" As soon as I opened the door, she jumped on me and b
