I got no way but to face them. I looked back at them and plastered a tight smile on my face. It was the manager of the hotel who called me, now he was grinning as if he has done something very big. Damn you. I cursed underneath my breath before I ambled towards them.
The manager greeted me with the flowers in his hand. "I am the manager of this hotel. Mr Cameron." He introduced himself as he extended his other hand to me. "Congratulations on your wedding."
I accepted his flowers and shook my hand with his. "Thanks."
Now please, let me go. Don't ask about him.
Mr Cameron nodded and rolled his eyes around, searching for someone. Must be Ryan. "By the way, where is your husband, Mr Ryan? We are waiting for him. Is he coming?"
Damn it. Should I say that I am going alone? And he will go back later? No.... that sounds weird. All the cameramen are here and if I say something like this, the news will be stirring everywhere.
I tried to make some better excuses but at this moment my brain was not working properly. "Um... No. Actually..."
"Darling." The voice chimed in before I could finish my words.
Wait, the voice seemed familiar.
I turned around and a relieved sigh silently escaped my lips as I saw Ryan succeeding towards me. "Are you feeling better now?" He asked with concern, looking in my direction.
I tilted my head, my jaw clenched. What feeling better? Wasn't I feeling good all the time?
Mr Cameron was smiling but his smile faded. "Are you sick, Mrs Laura?"
Before I could reply, Ryan nodded. "Yeah. The room is so dark, there are not enough windows. She was feeling nausea. So I told her to go out of the room and get some fresh air." He paused and gazed back at me. "Are you okay now?" He asked and cupped my face, pretending to look worried.
Oh my god! What a drama! He is really good at it. But wait, who the hell permits him to touch me?
"Darling." He called sweetly but to me, it sounded like the most bitter word on this earth. I just hate it.
I moved his hands from my cheeks and nodded awkwardly. "Yeah. I am okay. We should go back home now." Because I really can't tolerate this drama anymore.
"Yeah. Let's go." He said before he held my hand, pulling me towards the entrance gate.
And as we reached there, the whole management team congratulated us with the flowers. It was only Ryan who received each of them and thanked them.
My blood boiling up and to control my anger, I was quiet until I got into my car and he sat beside me. "Who do you think you are? What is your plan?" I asked calmly. I was having patience all the time but he has crossed the borderline.
He rested his head on the headrest and tilted his head at me. "What do you mean?"
"When I was trying to wake you up so many times, you pretended that you were in deep sleep, didn't you? And earlier it was in your plan to touch me, wasn't it?" Even thinking about it makes my blood raged. How dare he?
He chuckled. "You tried to wake me up?" As if he didn't know. "I was really sleeping." He said as he took something out of his pocket and placed it on the space between us on the seat. It was the note I left on the table.
He inhaled a deep breath. "When I woke up, I saw this note. Even I didn't think I will meet you there. It's your luck. And about touching you, I wasn't dying to touch you. Just to make it look natural, I touched you. But... there is one thing that.. I am really curious about." He said eyes narrowed.
"What?" I raised my brows.
"How can you leave your husband and think about going back home alone? How was I supposed to go back? I don't know the address, I don't even have your phone number." He wandered, his lips parted.
"That's none of my concern. don't call me darling And don't dare to touch me again." I warned him with a stern tone and looked away.
Ryan...Ms Ruthless. That's what actually Laura is. How can she already treat me like this? How did her boyfriend tolerate her?"Drive fast." Ms ruthless, I mean Laura spoke and the sleek car cruised to the entrance gate of Allen Mansion, running over the black tarmac so fast that the passing greenery became a hazy blur.Laura is always so cold to others and... doesn't care about anyone on this earth. Even marrying me was only for her satisfaction.After arriving in front of the Allen Mansion, I realised that they are not only billionaires but also... something more than that.The servants ran off from their places, got busy just to open the door of the car. As we got off, an old lady around 45 years old, wearing a black suit strode towards me and bowed politely. "Hello, young master. Welcome home. I am Kellie Kevin. The Butler of this mansion.""Hello." I gave her an awkward yet gentle smile before rolled my eyes and the luxurious painted masonry
Ryan...I didn't expect to see Elita here. And to ask me about the money in her purse. Really! She thought I stole her money. God! I didn't even know she took a purse that day. She is assaulting me for no reason, without any proof. And Laura. What's wrong with her?I let out an exaggerated sigh and turned at her. "Why did you give her the money?" I queried. This time, she really irritated me. Who told her to interfere?Laura gazed at me with a calm gaze. "What was I supposed to do? Keep quiet and tolerate you two?" She sounded like we assaulted her. Strange."Don't you think it's kinda humiliating? I didn't even know...""That's none of my concern. I gave her the money and that's it. I don't want to know anything else." She cut me off and combed something out of the wardrobe before she stomped into the bathroom."Laura, listen. I am not finished yet..." I called, but she didn't look back, didn't even bother to retort.I ran my fingers into m

Laura...Why is this guy staring at me like this? It gives me goosebumps. I mean, I hate the way he looks at me."What?" I broke the awkward silence that was building inside the room. Ryan didn't respond, he was not even blinking his eyes. What's wrong with him?"Ryan?" I called again, he finally blinked his eyes, back to his right mind."Yeah?" He replied, blank.As I gaped at him without saying anything, he cleared his throat. "Ah! I forgot. Ms Kellie came... a while ago. She said your grandfather is calling us for the breakfast! We should go." He said while standing up from the bed.I inhaled a deep breath and nodded before I strode to the dining room with him. I can avoid everything in this world, but not my grandparents. I am just helpless in front of them.Ryan...We walked to the staircase that flows into a large, wide hallway. It possesses the paintings, the original wallpapers from 1882 with classic Anglo-Japanese asymm
Ryan... When the formal breakfast ended, Laura and I went back to our room. I sat in my place. Yeah, the couch and watched her searching for clothes in the wardrobe. After what felt like an eternity, she took a white blouse out of it. "It's foul weather outside. It will rain anytime soon. I think white will be a bad choice for today." I said, leaning my back on the couch. Laura didn't bother or didn't even care what I said. She fumbled into the washroom with the white blouse and came back wearing it with her black-coloured plain jeans She stared at me for a while before she stood before the mirror and started scratching her hair. By god, I thought she will ask me if I was going to college like this. But now I guess Laura Allen would never notice me. I inhaled a deep breath and extended my hand to my luggage that was kept beside the couch. I opened it, drew a blue t-shirt out of it and started unbuttoning the current t-shirt I was wearing.
Ryan...When Rhia and I got out of the car, we were welcomed by the stares from the females who had stopped their tracks all of a sudden.Rhia chuckled as she felt their gazes. "Congratulations, you are going to be popular among the girls."I scoffed at her and leaned my back on the car. "You are kidding. It was true in my previous college but in this college, it's quite impossible because there are dozens of rich hot guys here."Rhia shook her head. "All the girls are staring at you, not me." She voiced so confident as if she has degrees on this topic. "Anyways, Thank you so much, brother-in-law, for the drive.""My pleasure. But Rhia..." I paused and looked at her after locking the car. "You can call me Ryan as well. We are the same age, right? And in college 'brother-in-law' sounds quite awkward.""Do you think it'll be okay with you?" She asked, narrowing her eyes as she walked closer to me.I nodded and moved away with an awkward
Ryan..."Really Ryan? You got into a fight! And With Nick! Like... seriously? It's your first day." Alex stated, clearly in disbelief. "Are you still the high school's badass boy?" He almost shouted at me, nagging just like an old granny.I silently slumped beside him above the bench, not bothering about what he said. My blood was still ragging inside my body for what happened earlier. I would have just broken his neck. What a bastard."Nick deserves it. But really dude, when Ryan punched Nick, it reminded me of the time of our high school. Damn, Ryan was the coolest at that time. Nick is going to learn his lessons soon. If he is bad, Ryan is his dad." My friend, Henry laughed, giving Dihan a high-five. Dihan is my other childhood friend who has biased me for punching his enemy. I think it's not only him, so many students were glad about the fact that Nick got a punch on his face.Flipping out of their rubbish talk, I tried to glide my mind on something else,
LauraThe bell rang, alerting all about the first class.But I still can't get over the whole thing that happened just now! What did he do to me a while ago? What did he say? I shouldn't go around like this... I mean like what? And protecting me? That sounds more insane.Ah, damn. That's disturbing.But... Focus, Laura. You can do it! You know you don't care, not at all.With that much determination, I strolled to the classroom and found my seat back again. But when I opened the book, the girls beside me didn't seem to let me sit down calmly."Yah, Rose, don't you think... that new boy who punched Nick is cool?" The girl in red raven lock flattered. I know her, she is popular. Her name is Lisa.The other girl beside her named Rose shook her head. "What are you saying? Just cool? He is the most handsome boy in this college." She whispered, fawning on him again, stealing glances at Ryan who was now busy talking with his best
