I laid down on my bed thinking about what William said,no way he likes me. This sudden confession definitely has an ulterior motive . No way william can ever like me . I have known that guy for almost a year now and i do not think he can love anyone but himself. He only knows how to love himself. And even though he truly has some kind of feelings for me ,i seriously wouldn’t be able to like him back ever. I just can’t like him back .
I slowly opened my eyes the second morning and looked around. Thankfully there was no sign of William , i do not want to feel guilty at all for telling him i do not have the same feelings he has for me . I opened my mouth to check out my teeth that was punched off by one of the kidnappers yesterday. I was quite suprised to see a teeth there this morning and i was too focused on my pains and William sudden Confession to notice this. The wierd feeling i got from touching it with my tongue soon made me realise the teeth was fake . Guess i have to learn to live with this plastic for the rest of my life since that teeth is never gonna grow back.
I turned to my right and i was absolutely shocked to see William standing there and staring at me
‘When ,when did you get in here ?’i asked while he walked towards the closet and brought out his first aid box.
‘I was in the bathroom..i walked out few minutes ago but you were too focused on checking out your teeth you didn’t even notice that ‘
‘Oh ‘i said as i looked away unable to make eye contact with him
‘Please seat ‘he said politely while i nodded lightly and sat down on the bed . He sat down next to me and wanted to remove the band aid (plaster) that was covering the cut on my head
‘Hey do not worry i will do that ‘i said as i held his hand to stop him . He looked at me for awhile before lowering his hand
‘I know you feel awkward around me for what i said yesterday ‘
‘It okay ..look whatever happened or whatever i said yesterday shouldn’t change anything. I really do not want you to feel uncomfortable around me and if you want i will never mention it again ‘
‘If you want me to stop feeling uncomfortable, why don’t you go back to your normal self . I know what your plan is ,you faking all this nice guy attitude. It really doesn’t suit you cause i know just who you’re william ‘ i said as i folded my arms and looked away while William scoffed and ran his hand through his hair . He is always doing that
‘Really Chelsea ,you really know who i am ?’
‘Ofcourse i do ,i have lived with you for months now and i realise that you nothing but a bitter person. You ain’t capable of loving anyone except yourself and this sudden change of attitude definitely has an ulterior motive ‘
‘Waw is that all you know about me . okay fine Chelsea, i know a few things about you . Should i tell you ?’ He asked while i looked away
‘Just like me you are a bitter woman, who holds on to the past and is never willing to let it go .. you might not have a memory of who you are or who you use to be but the truth is your past still hunts you . You have been hurt many times by people that why you believe everyone is the same . Everyone wants to hurt you ,you find it hard to trust anyone . But trust me Chelsea not everyone is a liar and a betrayal ‘ he said as he stood on his feet ‘yes i have done some pretty mean things to you in the past but all i can say is i am sorry for that ‘
‘ you talk so well like you know just who i am ‘
He smiled lightly as he sat dipped his hand in his pocket and shrugged ‘well you said what you know about me and i did the same . That what i see. I am not going to tell you that i am a good person or something, cause i am not . I am a bad person cause even till now i still want revenge on those who hurts me and am not willing to change for anyone not even you Chelsea. But i can still show you the better side of me, the side that i hardly show anyone in my life . The side i have never shown any woman..when you freshen up ,come downstairs the police wants to have a word with you ‘he said as he turned his back to leave
‘William ‘i called his name as i stood on my feet
‘Yes ‘he answered as he looked at me
‘What if i can never like you back ? ..what will you do’
‘Will you regret it ?’
‘Will you hate me ?’
He smiled as he placed his hand on my shoulder
‘I can never have a reason to hate you . I can’t do it even if i try ‘ he said as he walked out of the room while i was suddenly kind of sad.
‘He is right ,i am a bitter person . I might not remember my past but i know for sure that it must be a very unpleasant memory ”
I looked at the necklace in my hand as i squeezed it very hard in my palm . It getting really confusing cause it feels like the more she pushes me away ,the more feelings i have for her . Why is this happening to me ,Veronica is right when she
said she will never like me back . But that doesn’t mean i will give up ,i will continue trying no matter what .
My phone rang knocking me out of my deep thought.
I barged into Stephanie’s apartment and glared at her
‘You ‘she said
‘You ..i can’t believe you were the one behind this ,i can’t believe you would actually stoop this low .you better move out of here and go back to where you come for cause if the police lays their hand on you ,you going straight to jail for beating up William’s wife ‘
Stephanie and i stared at each other for awhile before we both burst into laughter and sat down on the couch
‘Tell me how was my acting ?’i asked Stephanie who had a big smile on her face
‘It was spectacular, i actually thought you were seriously accusing me alone when we are in this together ‘ Stephanie said and i smiled
‘Do not be ridiculous, i never betray my partners no matter what ‘
‘Yea true ..so how did you get your brother to stop suspecting you the one behind this ‘
‘You see my brother is way too smart for his own good . I knew i would be the first person he suspects so that why i went outside and made that fake phone call that day . If i had simply told him i wasn’t the one who got Chelsea kidnapped. He wouldn’t have believed me. He will continue spying on me until the secret is finally revealed ,that why i had to make that fake phone call that day and i was totally aware of the fact that my brother was right behind me ‘
‘You see you are too smart Beatrice i respect you ‘
‘Ofcourse i am smart, i mean i didn’t even deny trying to kidnap her ,but never mind that . Now he wouldn’t suspect us and we will not have to go to jail i really think i deserve a trophy don’t you think so ‘
‘Ofcourse you do ,you really deserve a trophy ‘
‘I really hate that woman and trust me ,this is just the beginning of her pains. I will definitely inflict so much pain on her she will regret marrying my brother ‘
‘I am with you on this one Girlfriend..we will definitely make Veronica suffer so
much she will regret crossing our part ‘
