Chapter 22.

Melanie’s pov 🧚

“Here’s the soup…”

Mr Bright grunted out, he dropped the bowl of soup on the bedside table and sat on the bed next to me…on the edge though.

“… drink it” he commanded and gestured at the soup.

I took a whiff of the soup’s aroma and my stomach growled, I couldn’t fight off the urge to finish it in a gulp.

Without wasting time, I grabbed the soup and finished it all at once.. strangely this soup is sweeter than the one Gabby normally prepares for me.

“Thanks… I didn’t know you are such a great cook” I said.

He’s always keeping a cold face, flirting about with women.. being so good at cooking wasn’t something I expected from him.

But he’s proved me wrong.

I took a glanced at him, he’s holding his stomach and grunting silently.

“Mr Bright, are you ok?” I asked.

He lifted his head slightly and threw me a glared, I blinked. Why is he giving me a deadly glare?

“I told you not to jump about!” He gritted out.

“Uh-oh!” I exclaimed quietly.

He clung on his stomach, folded his lips between his teeth and groaned.

Is he seriously feeling my pain? But how? How does it works? What kind of magic is this?

“I know something that can work.. you know.. cool off the pain..” I trailed off.

Mr Bright gave me an anxious look, like I should vomit whatever I have to say… I cleared my throat.

“Em… I should set a warm bath for you?” I suggested.


won’t work, just stay still, the soup you just consumed will work better” he replied.

I nodded, I leaned back and rested my back on the headboard, then we stayed in a moment of silence.

My eyes traced his features closely, from his perfectly athletic jaws… to his high bridge nose… his sweet chocolate pupils that dilated according to his mood, with a spec of red iris.

His lips… staring at his lips just had to bring my mind back to our kiss at that restaurant, though it was short but it left a lot for me to think about.

I wish he can just kiss me again right now, as if he heard my thought, he grabbed my neck and leaned forward.

His eyes flicked to my lips and stayed there for a very short moment, then he stared directly in my eyes and licked his lips.

“Darling, you might wanna stop those crazy thoughts”

said you shouldn’t think about kissing me…”

I folded my lower lip in my mouth at that statement, and chewed on it.

“…I’m having some weird feelings, I think it’s because of this pain”

Yeah… during my periods, I normally have mood swings because the cramps are so manipulating.

“So… don’t think of kissing me, or I might find it hard to control myself” he said.

I nodded shyly.
Looking at him up close, I realized he’s not bad looking at all, he’s devilishly handsome…in fact, sinfully perfect.

Well, at least the man who made me change my mind about being a nun, it’s kinda worth it.

“Have you decided?” He asked out of the blue.

“Decided about what?” I asked back, kinda confused.

“Have you decided about w€ther you wanna be a nun or not?” He repeated his question.

“Er….” I trailed off.

He adjusted himself and slightly turned to me, part of his body resting on the headboard near me.

“… I have thought it through and decided”

He looked at me sideways.

“I don’t wanna be a nun” I said.

He paused for a few minutes and chuckled lightly.

“Why did you decide not to be a nun anymore?” He asked.

I moved closer to him and linked our arms, then rested my head on his shoulder…well, I kinda subconsciously did it though.

“It’s never being what I wanted, I was just under so much pressure that I didn’t have time to think about what I wanna do…” I trailed off.

This is like one of the toughest decision I’ve taken in all my life, there might be even tougher decisions later.


all, I don’t think this road I’ve taken is gonna be so easy…but I hope God will have mercy on me and see me through.

“Well, it’s a good thing you’ve finally figured it out… anyway, I can’t have a nun as a mate”

He said and whispered the last part, but I still heard him since we’re kinda very close.

“I hope you didn’t take this decision for me though” he said.

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“I mean, you didn’t take this decision for my handsomeness and hotness right?”

I took a quick look at him, though he’s wearing a shirt but it couldn’t hide his hotness..I smiled.

“Hmm, we can say you also influenced my decision…” I trailed off and stared at him.

He arched an eyebrow at me, like urging me to continue, so I did.

“I like you” I said.

“You like me? Or love me?”

I frowned a little bit at his question.

“Is there any difference?”

He nodded.

“What’s the difference?”

“Liking someone is…you prefer being with me than being with your church rat…”

“He’s not a church rat!” I slapped his chest.

He caught my hand and kissed it instead, I snatched my hand from him and he winked at me.

“…while loving someone is…having a deep and strong feeling for someone you’re s£xually attracted to…loving me means you’re s£xually attracted to me…”

From his explanation just now, I’m pretty sure it’s love I’m feeling.

“So..which of the two are you feeling for me? Love or like?” He asked.

I cleared my throat.

“In that case I think I’m falling in love with you” I said.

He stared at me.


“Hm” I nodded with a hum.

He laughed, he leaned forward and rested his forehead on mine.

“As much as I’m thrilled to hear you say this words, I would be honest with you…you don’t know me”

“I know, I can get to know more about you later”

He shook his head.

“No, you’ll be very disappointed if you know me and you might even end up hating me”


What is he talking about? Wasn’t he the first to profess his love?

“I’m not the kind of guy you’d love to be with when you get to know me, I’m the devil”

“Stop referring to yourself as the devil, no matter how grave your sins are, you can correct them” I said.

He shook his head.

“You see what I mean? You don’t believe me whenever I’m saying the truth…I’m really the devil and I can’t correct my ways”


He slapped his hand on my mouth and muffled my words, he listened closely.

“Your friends are here” he said.

Just then I heard Gabby yelled my name from the living room.

“Lanie! Are you awake? Or asleep? Or you’ve joined your father in heaven?” she shouted.

I frowned slightly at Mr Bright, wondering why he’s covering my mouth.

“I should leave, it wouldn’t look good if your friends saw me here” he said.

“But they….”

He cut me off with a kiss on my cheek, then ran towards the window, he faced me.

“Take care of yourself, darling, I’ll come get you back after your father’s funeral tomorrow… please don’t get in trouble and hurt yourself”


I didn’t have any time to speak, before he jumped off the window.

Just at that moment, Gabby and Caleb rushed in.

Thankfully, I had changed the sheets earlier, else Gabby and Caleb would ask too much questions.

“Lanie!” Gabby called when she saw me.

She quickly jumped in bed next to me, she held my hands in hers.

“Were you scared being alone last night?” she asked.

“No” I answered.

“Phew!” she sighed. “That’s a relief, I was so restless last night…I thought you’d be scared and I blamed Caleb for leaving” she said.


passed Caleb a glare, as though to confirm her words. I laughed.

“I was fine on my own last night” I said.

I was fine because I was having a w€t dream, I thought to myself.

“Well, tomorrow is father Reed’s funeral…are thinking about your decision?” She asked.

Her eyes moved to Caleb, she smiled before facing me back.

“Mother Emily will be waiting for your reply immediately after the funeral” she said.

I nodded.

“I have thought it through, I gave it a lot of thought and I have decided to….” I trailed off, leaving them in a suspense.

Gabby and Caleb leaned closer, their ears pricked up as they wait anxiously to say it.

“Come on, Mel, don’t keep us in suspense” Caleb said.

I faced Gabby, she’s glaring daggers at me…like if I don’t say it she’s gonna kill me and send my body to father Reed in heaven.

“….I’m not gonna be a nun!” I dropped the bombshell.

They froze for a moment, they didn’t speak and were just staring at me…as if they’ve seen a ghost.

“Wh-what…what did you just…say?” Gabby stuttered.

“I’m not gonna be a nun” I repeated my words.

Her mouth fell opened and she released a very loud squeal, she sounded as though this was what she’s being dying to hear.

She grabbed me and pulled me into a very tight hug.

“Oh my God! I’ve got a roommate! I’ve got a roommate!” she shouted happily.

My brows drew together.

“Is that all you care about?” I asked.

She nodded, freed herself from the hug and started jumping around gleefully… it’s obvious that she can’t seem to control her joy.

“Congratulations, Mel” Caleb congratulated me, he also gave me a brief hug.

He sighed deeply.

“My worries are gone” he said.

I wanted to ask him what he meant, but Gabby suddenly rushed back.

“Wait… why did you suddenly made up your mind about not being a nun?” she asked.

“Hmm, let’s just say I wanna live for myself and do things for myself” I answered.

Caleb sat on the other side of the bed, next to me.

“What do you mean?” He asked.

“Being a nun is my father’s dream for me, it’s never being mine.. it’s never being my own decision… if he had given me a chance to choose, I don’t think I would have planned to be a nun in the first place”

They nodded in agreement with my words, but Gabby suddenly gasped and pointed a finger at me.

“I feel like that’s only one of the reasons you quit your being a nun decision” she said.

I frowned, Caleb and I gave her a confused look.

“Tell me, what’s the real reason you changed your mind?” she asked.

I opened my mouth to speak, but she beat me to it.

“Do you have a crush on someone?”

A crush? My cheeks suddenly flamed up as my mind was instantly clouded by Mr Bright, his smiling and flirtatious face flashed past my eyes.

“Oh my God! I’m right!” she exclaimed and I nodded.

Her eyes moved towards Caleb briefly, she pulled me into a hug and burst into loud giggles.

I also glanced at Caleb, he’s laughing but it’s so obvious he’s shy… kinda, because he’s blushing so hard.

“Who’s your crush? Is he someone I know?” she asked.

“Yes, you know him very well”

“Oooh! who is he?” she asked again.


“Don’t er, come on, tell us his name” she said.

Caleb looked at me expectantly, I can’t tell them it’s Mr Bright, I don’t know how they’ll react.. I avoided his eyes and cleared my throat.

“Just know he’s someone you know, please don’t force me to tell you.. it’s embarrassing me” I said.

She locked gaze with Caleb, then giggled.

“Fine, fine… It’s embarrassing” she said.

They must be thinking I’m referring to Caleb, well, I’m not gonna correct them at least not now.

“Lanie, you cooked?” Gabby asked.

She picked the empty bowl on the bedside table, she waved it in front of me.

“Oh, yeah…” I trailed off.

“Yeah?” she and Caleb asked at once.

They exchanged surprised looks, before turning to me quizzically.

“You cooked.. that’s weird” Gabby said.

“What’s weird about it?” I asked her.

“Have you forgotten?”

She slammed the bowl on the table, put her hands on her waist and gave me a detective look.

“You can’t cook even the simplest food, how did you cook a medicinal soup?”

Caleb picked the bowl and perceived, then faced me and raised his brows questioningly.


She suddenly gasped, she covered her mouth with her hands and stared at me with her eyes widened in shock.

“Don’t tell me you made up your mind not being a nun, because you had a one nightstand in my house last night!” she said.

“One nightstand?”

She nodded.

“What’s that?”I asked.

This is the first time I’m hearing such word, I’m a bit lost.

“She was asking if you spent the night with a man? Did you have s£x with him?” Caleb clarified.

My mind flashed to the dream, I bite my inner cheek to stop myself from blushing.

“I spent the night alone” I said.

“Oh…then how did you managed to cook yourself a soup?”

I rolled my eyes.

“It’s just a medicinal soup, I can drink it even if it tastes bad.. bitter medicines work faster” I replied.

“But you are…”

“Let’s forget about the soup, you are here earlier than I expected” I cut Gabby off.

She sighed and laid back on the bed, she groaned.

“It’s being so hectic at the convent, I came here for some solace” she said.

“Oh, right… It must be hectic, thanks for your great work”

Though father Reed was close to us both, but he’s my real father.. I felt kinda responsible for her stress.

“It’s fine, get ready let’s head back to the convent… we’re telling mother Emily about your decision, then… ” she trailed off.

“Then?” Caleb and I asked at once.

“You’re moving in with me, you can’t live at the convent now that you’re no longer gonna be a nun”

“Yeah, yeah” I agreed.

I jumped out of bed and rushed towards the bathroom, not before warning Gabby not to play with my phone though.

“I won’t” she replied and winked at me, but I know that’s a bluff.. she’s gonna use my phone until it ran out of battery percentage.

“Caleb, I’ll be out in a while.. watch that she-devil”

“Of course, darling” he replied.

I narrowed my eyes at him.

“Birds of a feather!” I grumbled under my breath and dashed into the bathroom.
