I groaned softly as my eyes slowly open.
I looked around as the familiarity of my
room settled in me.
I sat up on my butt when I realized I had
cried and fallen asleep on the bed.
My face was tight from all the crying.
I looked over to my wall clock and it was
17:50pm …… Slept that long.
I washed my face in the bathroom and
I felt bored so I decided to call Olivia.
My friend since college. We lived in the
same house until I got married to Damon.
“hey Olives ” I said into the phone.
I expected my voice to come out with glee
but it came out low and hoarse.
“Katharine! ” she yelled over the phone,
making me squeal.
“you forgot about me, how dare you?
Since you got married to that sexy Greek
god of yours, you don’t even call. You’re so
caught up in ecstasy that you totally forgot
about your bestie. By the way how’s that
sexy pant of yours doing? How was the
first night? How long did he last?” She
blabbed over the phone.
I s—-d in a breath and heaved it out.
Olivia the parrot!
“first of all Olives, I didn’t forget you ” I
said when she finally gave me a chance to
“I was so caught up in my miserable
shattered life that I didn’t have the chance
to call you ” I blurted out and she breathed
out an “oh”.
“why would you say that? What happened
” she asked softly.
I sighed and looked over to my table to see
a present lying there.
“we’ll talk when we see each other but for
now I’ll hang up ” I said, eager to know
what the present is.
“OK take care ” she said and hung up.
I went over to my table and took the
I tore it to reveal a silver dinner gown.
It’s so beautiful.
“you like it ” I heard a voice and my head
snapped to the door to see Damon
standing there with all his glory.
Why does he have to be so cute.
I closed my eyes and looked away when I
remembered what he’s done.
“it’s for a party that the CEO of the
company I want, organised ” he said but I
said nothing. Just admiring the dress.
“we’ll live at 19:30 so get ready ” he said
There’s nothing I can do.
I already accepted to help him.
My stomach growled and I sighed.
I’ll eat at the party.
I went to the bathroom and tidied up.
I put on the dress, styled my hair and
applied some make up.
I looked at my reflection in the mirror and
I’m so beautiful.
I looked over to my wall clock and it was
How fast time flies.
I took a matching purse with my heels and
My mouth slightly fell open when I saw
Damon in his tux.
I blinked rapidly and looked away from the
evil grin on his face.
“let’s go ” he said and I followed him out.
The ride was quite long and calm.
We got to the party and alighted.
Damon intertwined my hand in his arm
and we dramatically walked in as lovely
couples ……… Fake couples.
There were cameras clicking from all
angles and my legs wobbled a little.
Damon noticed and slid his arm around my
waist then pulled me to his side.
We went to a round table where I presume
all important people sat.
My eyes wandered everywhere looking for
something to eat and paying no attention
to the boring speech that was going on.
I smiled as some waiters served our table
“what would you like ma’am ” a male
He squatted to my mouth level so he could
“just get me French fries and orange juice
” I said and he nodded.
I smiled and looked over to Damon to see
him glaring at the waiter.
My French fries arrived and I smiled at him.
I slowly ate my French fries as the activities
The table was cleared and a man in his 60s
came to the table.
I’m sure he’s the CEO of the company
I can’t help but wonder why Damon wants
I mean Damon is a well known billionaire
so what the hell does he wants it for?
“so Damon is she the angel that captured
your heart “the man said, looking over at
me and Damon nodded with a fake smile.
“she’s beautiful ” he complimented.
“thanks ” I smiled.
After the little chit chat, I felt bored when
they started talking about business stuffs
so I went out to catch some alone time.
“hi ” I heard someone say and my head
snapped up to see a cute guy.
He’ll be the same age as Damon if I’m
“hi ” I said slowly.
“can I sit with you ” he asked and I smiled
giving him the hint to sit down.
“I’m Ken ” he smiled.
“I’m Katharine ” I smiled back.
My mood lightened up with Ken’s
I found myself laughing at any joke he
I sighted Damon coming toward us and
my laughter died.
“we have to leave ” he said, glaring at Ken.
“why? The party isn’t over yet ” I said, not
wanting to leave Ken.
“I don’t care, let’s leave ” he growled.
I looked at Ken to see him a little shaken
from the way Damon acted and the glares
“no ” I stated bluntly.
He hissed between gritted teeth and held
my arm, being gentle not to leave a bruise
then he pulled me up.
“let me go ” I demanded but he paid no
attention as he dragged me to the car.
He opened the car door and gently pushed
He boarded the car and drove off in high
We arrived home and alighted.
Damon gave me a blunt look and entered
I wonder what’s up with him.
I went up to my room, freshened up and
la!d on my bed.
I took my phone and texted Olivia where
to meet tomorrow at 10:20am.
I dropped my phone and slept off.
After having a cold shower to calm my
nerves, I put on my brief and la!d on my
What’s wrong with me? Why did I behave
I was so angry when that waiter at the
party was smiling and interacting with
I got more pissed when I saw her
laughing with a guy outside and that’s
why I left the party even though it was still
But why did I do that?
It’s her life and I better stop being pokey.
I sighed and la!d on my bed with closed
eyes, waiting patiently for sleep to
envelope and partly thinking why I got so
angry when I saw Katharine with that guy.
