AWKWARD Ethan woke up the next day feeling like shit. He had a blinding headache and felt an intense sense of loss around him. Memories of last night came flooding back and he tried to block them. He pressed a button on the wall close to his bed and within a minute, a servant walked in. "Coffee please, thick and black. Get me some aspirin too." He waved his fingers and dismissed the servant. Remembering he shared the room with Camilla, he turned to see if she was still there even though he knew it was unlikely and heaved in relief when she wasn't. His phone rang just then and he prayed it was not Margaret thankfully it was Gaius. "Hey " he murmured into the phone. "Where are you?" Gaius sounded exasperated when he spoke. "At home, in my bed precisely." Ethan pressed his temple with his index and middle finger clapped together. It felt as if he was getting blind by the sheer pain of the headache. "Won't you come to the office today?" "I don't know yet, my head hurts." Ethan m
PREGNANT Camilla was not sure why Emma asked for her, even though they had never been close, there was mutual respect between them. However, she had noticed that there had been a subtle change in Emma, in the last two months or so, she went from calm to wild then subtle. Camilla was suddenly worried, and hurried her step, when she hit Emma's door she waited a bit before knocking and was asked to come in almost immediately. "Hi." Camilla locked the door behind her and waited, this was her first time in Emma's room and even though she was invited she did not want to overstep her boundary. "You can sit over there." Emma pointed to a yellow couch. Camilla walked over to the couch and sat down, many thoughts flowed through her mind as to why she was called. She watched the young lady fidget with her hands. She looked worried and must have been crying, from how puffy her face was. "Is everything okay, Emma," Camilla asked. Emma shook her in no. "What is the problem?" Camilla asked.
Camilla looked on as Theresa and Emma cried in each other's arms. She felt sad with her own emotions, and thoughts of her mother overwhelmed her. For an instant she felt jealous, it had been long since she felt any real human touch around her, she missed her mother so terribly, she missed her hugs, her warmth, her smile, even her scent. She wanted to go back to Brazil and be with her mother. It was better than being invisible in this foreign land but she could not, her mother had forbidden her from being irrational with her decision, she could not go home because she would lose what she had worked so hard to get. Even though being with her mum was all she wanted, she knew her mother would be more heartbroken if she failed than if she never sees her again. Gathering herself together, Camilla waited for Emma and Theresa to calm down and when they finally composed themselves, Theresa reached out to Camilla and hugged her too. "Thank you," Theresa said with a smile. Camilla was confuse
STRAYINGEthan took a long gulp of his scotch, it was what he needed. Even though he was fully aware that it was his favorite mix, how she knew he liked it remained a mystery, a part of him wanted to get out to avoid further entanglement with her while another part of him wanted to be wild, have fun without a care about who gets hurt. He was still contemplating whether to flee or stay when Margaret came back into the living room wearing next to nothing.He knew his mouth hung open on seeing her, but he could not close it. He stood transfixed as she walked toward him and stopped in front of him.Margaret smiled at him "you like." She swirled allowing Ethan a better view of her body."I have to leave now," Ethan said, he gulped down the remaining drink and stood up from the chair. "I am sorry."Margaret was surprised, she held him by the hand and met his gaze. "Why." She was irked by his behavior."I…I forgot." He shook his head as if trying to recollect "I can't do this Margaret, am so
THIS IS NOT HAPPENING On the elevator ride down, Ethan reflected on everything that had happened, on one hand, was a willing Margaret that had the body of a goddess. On the other hand, was Camille, she was also beautiful, homely and his children seemed drawn to her. He had a plan, to hire a bride, get married so his mother would stop pestering him, and after five years divorce her. Well, the plan seemed to be falling apart, not only was he drawn to Camille, but he was also being faithful to her. He could not make this up and it was getting on his nerves. Cheating your spouse was wrong but he wouldn't be cheating if the bride was for hire, yet here he was leaving the flat of the most gorgeous woman he had ever met who was minutes ago begging him to screw the hell out of her, she had been so wet and so ready. He palm-butted his face in disgust. Even if he wanted to, he doubted that Margaret would be willing anymore not after he had rejected her not once, but twice. What am I goin
The tension in the car as they rode to the hospital was nerve-wracking. Emma had stopped crying, she just sat quietly beside Camilla in the backseat and tried not to think about what she was about to do. Emma knew her father was still seething, she could tell from the way he jammed on the horn of his car and how fast he rode. If he meant to kill them all then so be it, her life was already ruined.But could she continue to blame Chad, her dad did, and everyone in her family did but she blamed herself more. She could have read between the lines, and seen the red flags. However, she had been more thrilled to be dating the most popular kid in school who showed interest in her and thereby threw all caution to the wind. Her negligence has cost her; here she was going to the hospital to get rid of the bastard as her father put it, and Chad was nowhere to be found, he might be up someone else skirts, he could be having the best day of his life or worst he could be frolicking with Melissa his
RIDE HOMEEmma sat at the back of the car thinking about her life and how she had wrecked it. She could not believe that she was carried away by Chad's charm and good looks. Now she is single and pregnant and her father hates her. She wanted her mum so bad, if she had been here she would not be in this situation. Resting her back against the seat she heaved a long sigh and felt Camilla's hands rub her shoulders. Camilla, her stepmother. She had hated the idea of her marrying her father, but now Camilla was the strength she needed in her dilemma, the young woman had comforted her and never judged her since she told her about her pregnancy. Her father on the other hand had been moody since finding out, if looks could kill, she would already be dead from the dagger shooting out of his eyes towards her.It had been a silly mistake on her part, the warning signs were there but she overlooked it all because she enjoyed the attention and popularity being with Chad gave her. Her naivety w
REGRETSChad Made love to Emma again, this time it was easier to penetrate and keep thrusting into her. Even though Emma experienced some discomfort, she found the sex more pleasurable than the previous one. She even had an orgasm before Chad released into her again. They lay beside each other panting and sweating after the sex was over. After some minutes, They went to shower together; it was already getting late and Emma was worried that her father might get home before her, if it was just her grandmother she would make some excuse and her grandmother will let her be, but her father would enquire to know more about where she had been and she was not ready to divulge such information.Chad also wanted her gone before his father arrived. His father was not amused by the number of girls he brought home.“Your body count is off the chart.” His father had reprimanded him just two weeks ago. He did not want his father to reveal his lifestyle in front of Emma. He knew Emma loved him just
