"Remember the most important rule, don't get caught." *** I try to keep my expression neutral and give nothing away in my eyes, Eli is a smart man, smarter than he lets on and will know if something is different about me, "Everyone change, Eli, you definitely aren't the man you were when we first met, but the question is if the change is for the better or the worse." His hand reaches over the table and take mine in the gloves and though there is a barrier between our hands his touch is felt and the reaction sent to the rest of my body. "I love you, Anna and that's not going to change, but I have to admit that I like this side of you more. However, I am contented with whatever I get as long as I get to have you." These words are the words any woman wants to hear their man tell them and it is almost perfect to my ears... almost because I am not Anna...View More
"There are many who don't wish to sleep for fear of nightmares. Sadly, there are many who don't wish to wake for the same fear."Richelle Goodrich~ Third POV Quynn's eyes open and in the first few seconds, everything around her is a white picture, but as the seconds pass, the blurriness clears and she realised that she's in a white painted room. There is a window to the side, which somehow the sun manages to penetrate through even with the curtain acting as a barrier. The sunlight as well as the brightness makes her eyes sting and she wince and shuts them for a while and she mentally tries to adjust to this alternate reality. She cannot remember the last thing that happens and she tries to carefully rethink and understand her situation better. After coming up fuzzy and blank, she sighs in defeat and her eyes open again but unlike t
"The truth hurts. And much more than love, kindness, or any of these warm feelings you’re so fond of, truth is beauty, and the thing that will set you free."A.D. Aliwat I follow behind her like a sheep being led to the slaughter without a word to say and she lead me to one of the three cars parked at the entrance of the hotel which was a Toyota. This is the end, this is my end, the end I have dreaded since the beginning of this mess. My whole body trembles and cold grips me to the core and I am panicking and dreadful of what lies ahead. My eyes grow blurry but I blink them back because tears are the last things that I need right now. My breath grows laboured and hard and my quivering hands become sweaty as she hands me the keys to the car and I confusedly collect it. "You're going to drive this car to the Chapel where Eli still is and you're going to go to him and
"There is an ocean of silence between us… and I am drowning in it." ~Ranata SuzukiShe's wearing a red blouse, a black pencil skirt and a red bag, her curly hair neatly tied into a bun and her face holding little to no makeup on it.My heart drops and panic rises within me as my eyes meet hers and she sees it too because she scoffs and enters further into the room even without being invited, carrying the same arrogance and loathe she always had around me.Why is she here? Is she following me? How's the wedding? Shit, she was uninvited to the wedding.What does she want? Because this isn't keeping a low key like Anna instructed or wanted. Someone has discovered my hiding place and I fear for the worst."What are you doing here?" I demand and slowly I turn to look at her, my voice fighting to stay firm. "How did you find me?"
"When it's gone, you'll know what a gift love was. You'll suffer like this. So go back and fight to keep it."Ian McEwan~Quynn POV A few days ago I would have been happier with the news of the finding of my bag because that meant I could get my phone and most likely get in touch with Anna, but I have called the number given to me by the stranger earlier and it there was no answer.If all was okay with Anna why didn't she come for the switch? Why isn't she here planning her own wedding? Is she even looking forward to her wedding? If yes, why is she MIA on this very important week?Questions that can't be answered run through my head and I shake them out to retain composure and I make downstairs to meet Eli after I heard the sound of his car in the driveway. The front door opens and he steps into the parlour he's wearing a grey long sleeve
"The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off."~Joe KlaasEli's POV Amade said he would be in my office as soon as he finishes with his assignments as well and when I told him that Anna gave us permission for the bachelor party, he was thrilled and promised that it would be a blast then I told him Anna was going to have his head on a stake if he didn't bring me back home in one piece. That wasn't what Anna said but I'd like my use of words for better emphasis.I am almost done with the last document when the door opens and Keffi walks into the office.She's wearing a green blouse and a plain black trousers, her hair is in a pony tail and her face having her usual natural make-up with a red lipstick sealing the deal. She looks like she's going out on a date and whoever the man is, good for him.Keffi has alw
"If you come from a family where there is no struggle to outshine one another, give thanks to God."~Michael Bassey JohnsonQuynn's POVI feel like everything is falling apart before my very eyes and I cannot help pacing around and thinking about what I just did and said back there. I have no idea what in God's name came over me. Jumai has never been a fan of Anna and it wasn't news, but I should have held it together at least for Eli's sake. Now, I succeeded in proving what Jumai have always said about me is true pacing beside the car and when she sees me. I see Eli approaching me and I stops and walks up to him with apologetic eyes."I'm sorry I said all that to your mom, I just lost it and I don't make the wisest choices in my moments of anger. Just lately things are not going the way I expected and I'm losing it and I didn't mean for you to see that s
"Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood."~George OrwellColdness breaks out onto my skin and my throat runs dry as I stare at Anna's parents in awe. "You are not our Anna.""How did you know?" my brow narrowing is the only expression my face gives even though I am tumbling on the inside.Maria steps forward and gently takes my hand, "We were Anna's parent for fifteen years and we could tell you weren't her the minute you spoke. And indeed it has been long, but we raised Anna and we know what's unlike her. We believe that you are Cara Wilson our long lost daughter." Her eyes are glassy and filled with much hope and happiness.I turn to look at Eli who is far away and unable to hear what we're saying, "Then why didn't you say anything?""Because it doesn't look like you have a choice in wha
"The truth is rarely pure and never simple."~Oscar Wilde"What?""Your mother was pregnant we went to the hospital for delivery but unlike the ultrasound predicted, we ended up with two babies. When the doctors came to me with the news I was happy and joyful we have been trying to have kids for years," he laces his finger in Maria's as he speaks. "Your mother went into coma after delivery and so we couldn't leave after the both of you were born, so you were kept on the hospital's new born baby's ward. I went to visit you guys everyday that your mother was in that coma and that was the most painful and joyous moment of my life. I was happy that you two were in our lives, but the doctor's couldn't ascertain that your mother was going to come out of the coma and I couldn't raise you two alone."The fourth day of my visit, I saw a man in the baby's ward, holding onto your
