"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
Sacha's POVI was glad to have Remy in my corner like a time like this. I needed my best friend back and I had her.After hours at the hospital, after down pour of tears and after I threw my hormonal tantrums, I was at home resting on my favorite couch.I mind instantly went back to Christian. He had me on this couch just some hours ago, kissing me and holding me in his strong arms.I exhaled heavily. No matter how much I tried to calm myself, my mind would visit memories of him or my little sister and I would get angry all over again.I reached for a vase and smashed it and screamed with rage and pure anger."Sacha," Remy said."I needed to let that out, Remy.""How about we try to take your mind off what happened?""How? Huh? How are you going to do that when my life is practic
Sacha's POVI couldn't visit Judy without seeing Christian as well. Although he was still in a coma and no telling when he'll wake up, I still wanted to be close to him.I sat next to him quietly as I observed his motionless form. Memories flooded my mind.The first time I saw him at the club.When he pulled up and offered me a ride home.When he took my virginity away and used the term 'make love' instead of 'fuck'.The times when I talked to him about my troubles and he gave me his entire Summer house that looks more like a freaking mansion.￼"You have to wake up," I whispered in his ears as I held his hand.And then I felt it. I felt his fingers wrapping around mine and a firmed hold occurred.Happy tears slipped from my eyes as his eyes star
Sacha's POV"Sacha, you have that look in your eyes. Don't do anything crazy," Josh cautioned."Josh, I just found out I've been best friends with a snake. A cobra that's spitting venom on my life to tarnish me. What have I ever done to Remy to deserve this betrayal AGAIN?" I lashed out.I shouldn't be taking my anger out on Josh. He didn't deserve it but I was hormonal and I wanted Remy's head on a platter."I understand your pain. She's the cause for.....""She's the cause of everything falling apart from around me," I cut Josh off and finished.He nodded in agreement and sat down beside me on the couch. Remy would be home any minute now and I couldn't wait for her to walk through the door.We sat in silence until I heard the door being opened and Remy walked in.As if possessed, I heaved myself off
Sacha's POVAfter accepting Christian's proposal to marry him, my kid sister and myself moved into his extraordinary mansion.I was so thrilled to be 'at home' with him finally. He was always present in my and Judy's life. And he was extra excited in becoming a father. He never missed an OBGYN appointment.Judy regained full usage of her legs and she no longer had to use a wheelchair to get around.

Sacha's POVLife was good. After Christian and I got married and moved into his mansion to create our family, I did some self- reflection.I was happy to be with someone who cared about me although the circumstances surrounding how we met and got involved were not one of the best.~It was a new week and I was looking forward to taking the baby out for a morning walk.Judy had left for school and Christian had left for work. The maids were doing chores around the house.I placed our son into a stroller and we left. I loved the neighborhood. Lush, tall trees lined the roadway. Everyone's property was well kept, the lawns and bushes were trimmed and shaped neatly, the air was cleaned and so was the streets."Hey, good morning, Sacha," a voice behind me greeted.I looked and saw my next door neighbor jogging up to me."Hi Esme," I answered."And hi baby," she sai

Sacha POV SNAP!"Damn It! That's the third comb this week!" I shouted at myself as I stared in subjugation at the broken piece of comb that was still attached to my thick Afro 4C hair.I heaved a loud sigh, contemplating myself in the mirror as I tossed the broken comb in the bin next to my feet. What should I do with my hair now? Knock Knock I leaped but I remembered I wasn't alone in my tiny apartment anymore."I have to pee!" my little sister shouted from the other side of the door."Hold on!" I shouted back and unlocked the door to let her in. She rushed for the toilet and did her business while looking at me."Bad hair day?" she asked when she flushed."Yep. Another one. And I broke another comb.""Wow, you're going for the record," she teased.Judy was ten and I was twenty when we lost both parents in a fatal car accident one year ago.Judy was taken away by the state because they claimed that I wasn't 'fit' enough
