But loves me not 💔)
Writer:- Racheal Dennis ✍️✍️
I yawn sleepily as I snuggle to the warmth of my bed. I pull the blanket up….
Rewinde…. Bed…. Blanket…
I quickly sit up and shake the sleep from my eyes.
I look around and notice I’m in my room, on my bed and my blanket covering me.
My last memory was Fred locking the door on me and leaving me outside, in the rain. Then how did I end up here?
Could it be…. Fred?. No, that can’t be, Fred is too heartless to bring me to my room.
Just then I hear a knock on my door and I know it’s Fred.
“Hey ugly” I roll my eyes, of course it’s him. “Are you alive in there or I should start making burial arrangements”
So it’s his plan to watch me die. I knew he wouldn’t bring me in, maybe I came in on my own.
“Sorry to disappoint you, I’m alive and well” I replied him.
“Good, come down in five minutes” he said and I hear his footsteps fading away.
Today’s Sunday. I have nowhere to go, it’s gonna be just me and Fred in the penthouse all through.
God, please save me from this Beast!.
I lazily climb down and head towards my bathroom, I should freshen up before I head down. I take off my gown a gasp leaves my mouth.
I just notice I’m no longer in my dress from yesterday, in fact I’m in my nightie.
Oh my gosh! Did I change into this? No, I don’t think so… Which means… He did?.
“Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!” I screamed.
My bathroom door burst open and Fred rushed in.
“What happened? Ugly are you ok?” He asked. I hear concern in his tone and worry evident in his eyes.
But then I realized I’m half n@ked, I pushed him out and kick him on his groin.
He falls down and holds it as he grunt in pains.
“What’s that for?”
I point my finger at him.
“Di…. Di… Did you change my clothes last night?”
“Yeah, I did”
“What?” My eyes grows big.
Does that mean he saw my body?
“It’s not a big
deal.. you are my fiancée and you’ll soon be my wife” he said and stands up slowly.
“Ugh, God. Get out”
He lower his gaze to my chest and smirks, I quickly cover my chest with my hands.
“Your bre@sts are too small, just like peanuts”
“That’s not your problem! Pervert!”.
“Of course it’s my problem. I’m gonna be the one squeezing and sucking them after we get married”
I stare at him in disgust. He’s so shameless, speaking vulgarly.
“Shut up and get out!”
“I’m waiting for you downstairs, make sure you don’t die in there” he
turn and head towards the door.
I make funny faces at his back and mimic him.
I wore a pink jean bumshort and a pink double layer tank top. I throw my hair in a messy bun and head out.
I enter the living room and see Fred going through his phone with a small frown. I sit on the sofa opposite him.
He raise his head, look at me for a few seconds then shake his head and wolf whistle.
“Ugly, are you trying to look cute?” I ignore him. “If you’re please don’t, being cute doesn’t suit you”
I rolled my eyes.
“Why did you ask me to come down?” I asked him instead.
“Oh, I’m hungry”
“Really? That’s why you called me here?”
“Well, Mr Russell. I’m tired from yesterday, so I can’t help you”
“That’s not an excuse. I’m hungry and I need you to cook breakfast for me”
“You can get one of your girlfriends to do that for you” I get up and turn to head back to my room.
But he holds my hand and pull me back.
Our chests touching, he wrap his other arm around my waist. My gaze falls on his lips, they look so full, soft and kissable, I can hear his tempting lips calling on me.
I can hear my heart beating fast. You know, when you are this close to the person you love, you won’t be able to control your emotions.
Right now my heart is beating as if it’s gonna jump out of my chest.
I see Fred smirk and that’s when I came back to my senses.
“Let me go” I said.
He leans forward slowly, looking at me in the eyes as he does. Is he trying to kiss
me? I know I want to kiss him so bad, but I didn’t expect he’s feeling the same way too.
I close my eyes and wait for his lips to touch mine.
But instead I feel his hot breath on my neck, I open my eyes and see his mouth is close to my ear.
“Cook breakfast for me or ill….” He trails off and straighten up.
“Oh, ugly you don’t wanna know what I’ll do. Just cook breakfast so you wouldn’t have to find out, because trust me it’s not gonna be good”
I throw him a glare and move away from him. He smirked, I honestly feel like stabbing him in the throat.
I angrily march towards the kitchen.
I chuckle as she walks away angrily. I don’t know why I like messing with her, I like getting on her nerves.
Just like last night, I wanted to punish her for going on a date with that clown, but I couldn’t sleep knowing she was outside in the cold.
I had to come out and carry her back to her room. Each time I get back at her for something, I end up feeling bad.
I told her she can date whomever she likes, but I get this weird feeling in my chest when I saw her laughing with that clown yesterday.
Even the thought of her with another guy makes me mad.
I’m a man that changes girls everyday, but I’ve never have any of these weird feelings for any of them, so why is ugly’s case different.
I followed her and stand by the door watching her as she move around in the kitchen, picking out ingredients and stuff.
My phone beep in my pocket. I take it out and see a message from my dad.
*How is it going…have your
Boys retrieve the good
I roll my eyes. Of course the goods are more important to him than me, I was shot but he doesn’t care about that.
I decide to ignore the text and keep the phone back in my pocket.
Just then I hear a thud. My ears perk up as I raise my head and see ugly lying on the floor. I quickly rush to her and start shaking her.
“Ugly, ugly are you ok?” She doesn’t answer me.
I only hear weak groans from her, her face is turning pale.
“Ugly what happened, get up. Ugly!” She still doesn’t answer or move her body.
Why isn’t she moving…I feel myself panicking and a feeling that I haven’t felt in years, I don’t think I’ve even ever felt it before….Fear! Fear of the unknown suddenly grips me.
What just happened…she was fine few seconds ago.
I should call Gray, he’ll know what to do, he knows a few medical skills.
I reach out for my phone and dialed his number, he picks on the first ring.
“Gray come in, I need your help ASAP”
“Hmm, what does the almighty Fred need my help with, I don’t see you in danger from where I’m sitting” he said.
I grunt impatiently.
“My…my… ugh!” Why can’t I say it. “Ugly just fainted”
“Ugly? Who’s ugly?”
That sly bastard, he knows whom I’m talking about but he wants me to say it.
Just as I said the word, I hear the main door open and I see Gray rush in.
“Fred?” He called.
“In the kitchen”
He rush towards me, he push me away gently and bend down to carry ugly.
I hold his hand.
“What are you doing?”
“Trying to carry her to her room”
“You could’ve ask me to carry her. Who said you can touch her” I scold him.
“Make way!” I push him and carry her, then I head upstairs.
As I climb the stairs I lost control of my legs, instead of taking her to her room, I found myself taking her to my room. MY room!.
I laid her on my bed and sit next to her. Gray look around and look at me furrowing his eyebrows.
“Ar… Fred? This is your room” he said.
“Are you gonna fvcking check what’s wrong with her?” I grunt out glaring at him.
“Oh, yes” he bends. He uses his palm to feel her temperature, he opens her eyes and stare at them for a few minutes, he touched her palm, then he straighten up and smile.
I look at him anxiously waiting for him to tell me what’s wrong, but he keeps looking at her. I followed his gaze and my eyes fall on ugly’s hand, my hand holds hers tightly.
From the way I hold her hand, it’ll seem as if I’m scared… But me getting scared is not possible…. Nothing can ever scare me.
“Well, tell me why she fainted”
He clears his throat.
“It’s nothing serious, she is just having a fever. Was she exposed to cold recently?”
Cold… Hold up, it couldn’t be the rain yesterday, I didn’t leave her there for too long.
I carried her to her room and even helped her change from her w€t clothes.
“I.. I.. I locked her outside last night, but I don’t think she got the fever because of that”
“You mean you lock her outside yesterday under that heavy rain?” I nod slowly and he blinks rapidly. “Why did you do that?”
“I only did it to punish her, ok” I clenched my jaw as I recall the way she was laughing with that clown. “I saw her getting all touchy with another guy, so I decided to teach her a lesson. But… I.. I didn’t let her stay outside for too long”
“So you did that out of jealousy?”
“No, I wasn’t jealous!”
Grayson studies my expression, then shakes his head.
“Holy shit! You are in love with her”
“Her? Not gonna happen”
“It has already happened, you’ve fallen in love with her. If you haven’t fallen for her tell me why you would care who she was getting touchy with some guy?”
I look at her and shudder in disgust.
“It can’t happen” I said.
“You’re in denial. Listen, Fred. Love is a beautiful thing and those who have the opportunity to experience it should cherish it, Fred you’ve been lonely for too long. Now that your heart has found someone to keep it beating, why not take the chance”
Am I really in love with ugly? Is that why I’m having all these weird feelings?.
“Fred, give your heart a chance”
I shake my head. I can’t.
“I’m not in love with her”
“Ok, let’s take it step by step then we’ll know if you’re in love with her or not” he paused and take a breath, then continue. “Do you feel happy when she’s around?”
Happy? I think I kinda do. I nod.
“How did you feel when you saw her with that guy?”
“Er… It’s… I felt tightening in my chest, it’s was as if a fat man was sitting on my chest” I said.
“Now, how do you feel when you get back at her for something she did?”
“I feel bad, very bad”
“Ah!” He claps his hands together. “That’s it, you love her. Fred you’re deeply, I mean deeply in love with her”
“Really?” Do I love her?
“Yeah, all you have to do is make her love you back”
“B-but… I don’t know how”
“Don’t worry, I’m here for you. I’ll teach you how to make her fall in love with you too”
Wait… Why am I listening to Gray’s nonsense words.
“Gray, you’re getting in my head. Get out!”
“I’m not getting in your head, stop denying your feelings”.
“Gray, I said get out!”
He raise his hands in surrender.
“Ok, ok. I’m out, but don’t forget to come to me when you’ve thought it through”
He turns and head for the door, he stops halfway.
“Don’t forget to cool her temperature with an ice pack, and make some chicken soup for her” then he’s out.
I turn to ugly and stare at her face. Looking at her up close, she doesn’t look ugly. Infact I can say she’s way beautiful than most of my one night stands.
Even though her face has kinda lost its color, her beauty doesn’t falters.
My hand move on its own and caresses her cheek softly.
My gaze shifts to her small pink lips, though they’re small, but they’re full and kissable.
I found myself leaning in, my lips brushes hers.
It’s so smooth as I feel it, slowly my lips part and I see my lips moving against hers.
I thought her lips would be hard, but I’m so damn wrong.
Her lips are soft and addicting, I close my eyes and savour the taste of her lips.
She suddenly grunts and I instantly wake up from…. Whatever spell I was in.
Why did I kiss her? No, I can’t… I shouldn’t… It can’t be true, I can’t be in love with her….
My world is too dangerous, I can’t drag her in and let her get hurt. I can’t love her…. Love shows weakness and that I don’t wanna have.
I stand up abruptly from the bed. I better go make her that chicken soup.
T. B. C.

Fred you’ve overestimated yourself….since you’ve kissed her once you’ll always crave for more now 😍😍
Eva your dream is slowly coming true ♥️♥️
