🍋 Smith’s pov 🍋
“I can’t believe you don’t feel guilty about this Alexa, she literally cried” I argued with Alexa who was still insisting our argument with Stella was no big deal.
“Look Smith, I really don’t know what’s wrong with you, you brought this idea, it worked, except for the part she found out what happened, I really don’t know why you’re complaining, now that it’s actually working” she replied
” Look Alexa, you may not have any atom of guilt and conscience in you, but I mist assure, I’m weigh different from you in that aspect” I replied
” Don’t tell me you’re beginning to have pity feelings for that girl” Alexa said.
” You can call it whatever you want, but just for you to know, I’m backing out of this, you’ve caused enough damage, emotionally and physically, you even built a bridge between two friends, yet I don’t think you even regret it a bit. I know it was all my plans, but let’s be sincere Alexa you’re the main executor” I said.
” I don’t where this is coming from Smith, but I know something is wrong somewhere, and it is obvious that you’re totally out of your mind” she replied looking pissed.
” You can say it the way you see it. But like I said, whatever you say, is none of my business, your reaction or response. I also want to use this medium to tell you how nice it was working evil with you, I wish you good luck in your battle with Amaya and in your plans with getting Jeremy to yourself. But I also want to inform you that if eventually your plans comes to a success, there’s no way you’re gonna be happy with yourself knowing deep down that it’s just a one sided love, you’re never gonna be happy Alexa, I don’t know why I’m saying this, but I’m sure it’s for your own good girl, it’s left for you to make your own decisions” I said to her, I’ve never made any long speech like such to someone, but something in me urged me to do so.
I really want to see Stella, but it’s been a whole day since I’ve seen or heard from her. She said she hate us, I mean hate me. Those words really hurt deeply and I feel really guilty of all what she said. I must find and apologize to her today. Even if it might be a big disaster talking to her, she may not want to even see me again but I just have to try, cause the little time I spent with her, I Discovered she never deserved anyone’s hate, Alexa is just being who she’s not, I hope she discovers quickly before she end up hurting herself for Jeremy who doesn’t even care.
I walked into the cafeteria to get a cup of coffee just to free my mind. On my way out, I met Stella and Olivia, it seems they were also coming to the cafeteria. And it also seems they’re back together, I’m so happy for them but the guilt still keep on eating me up deeply. As Stella’s eyes met mine, I could still see the pain in her eyes and the guilt in me spread.
“Hi Stella, Olivia” I greeted them but only got a response from Stella which I knew was reluctant.
“Do you mind if I talk to you?” I asked and they both looked at each other.
” Me or her?” Olivia asked with anger, jeez! This girl has temper.
“Uhmm.. Stella may I talk to you?” I retraced my sentence.
“Better” Olivia replied rolling her eyes.
” So can I?” I asked staring at Stella this time.
“I don’t know what you even have to say, I don’t think I can spear you a second anymore, or what do you think?” She said looking at Olivia. She’s right though, I don’t even deserve a millisecond.
“Well you’re right, but I think you should give him few minutes, he looks quite sober, if he tries anything funny just text me, will be waiting for you inside” Olivia replied walking in. And I sighed in relief, I thought she was never gonna let me.
🍭 Stella’s pov 🍭
“Could we at least leave the way?” I asked him.
“Oh yes you’re right” he replied and we both moved away.
” So what do you want from me Jace, I shouldn’t even be talking to you, but trust me it’s Olivia’s fault” I said
” Yes thanks for that, I’m really mad at myself now, you deserve to be ‘madder’ if there’s any word as such.” He said
” Look Smith, just get straight to the point cause I see no reason for your chit chat stuff, probably you guys have made a second plan. But sorry Smith, I’m not falling for it anymore” I replied
” Yh, you’re right Stella, but I want to assure you that I come with a free mind” he said and I laughed internally.
” You think I’m gonna believe you. Jeez! Smith, you’re really a good actor, you should have registered to a drama or movie college, not music” I replied
” I’m sorry Stella, I understand how you feel about me now, but I really want you to try putting that aside, for our own good, I promise, it’s gonna be alright” Smith said, well he looked sorry but there’s no way I’m gonna believe such pranks again.
“Once bitten, Twice-told Smith, I mean what you did was really bad, never in my life have I been deceived so much by a person, I thought you cared about me Smith but I was totally wrong” I said
” But I do Stella” he argued and I chuckled
” You don’t, okay. You don’t a bit. Like for once, I thought I’ve found a new friend who really cares for me, but it was just an illusion. Look Smith, standing here listening to your apology sulks, do you think it’s really easy to trust a liar? Well I’m done speaking with you, just for you to know it Smith, it was nice meeting you” I said trying my possible best not to cry walking away, people were even taking video, I guess my voice was louder than I thought. Well, I may sound rude, but I don’t wanna be the stupid one falling for his tricks anymore.
I walked back into the cafeteria going to sit with oliyat the table she was, she was using her phone but noticed my arrival.
“That’s what you think Livia, but he’s really a good actor than you could ever imagine, wait were you watching us?” I asked confused.
” Yes, right here” she said showing me her phone
” Of course swiii, our school never lags in things like this, they’re always good at spreading news, true or fake, rumors and a lot more than you could imagine” she said
” That’s true” I said chuckling but it wasn’t from within.
” Hey Stelly, it’s gonna be okay, you have to stop feeling bad” Olivia said
” Thanks Olivia, for your support and everything, I never expected this after my annoying behavior” I said
” You don’t have to say that.” She said and I smiled
” That’s good, remember our practice for the concert begins tomorrow, miss Natalie told us to come to her studio, she has already informed the authorities and they are fine with it” she said
” Well that’s great, can’t wait” I said excitedly
” Me too” Olivia replied happily
“Now let’s go get lunch” she said and we both walked to the counter.
🌻 Closing hour🌻
🍉 Karen’s pov 🌺
Today I took permission to leave the school quite earlier than usual, I aimed it at Stella’s closing time, I’ve decided to follow her home today, I mean sneak behind her. Cause I feel there’s something I need to find out.
I walked behind her as she said goodbye to Olivia boarding a cab. Hmm..I think they are back together, that’s actually cool.
I quickly boarded a cab, telling the driver to follow her own cab.
It wasn’t that easy but the driver was quite good at following without being noticed even though I had to pay extra amount for it.
It was almost 45 minutes before the driver finally stopped in a small apartment, I told the driver to stop a little bit far away from her own cab. I paid him and he zoomed away. I watched Stella as she walked further more towards the building until she stopped in front of the door, probably searching for the keys. I felt a little bit disappointed since the main reason I came was to see her elder brother to see if I may recognize him, considering how her story relates to mine. But right now, it seems no one is at home.
She opened the door finally walking in, I sneaked watching through the window. I felt really anxious, I hope I know what I’m doing.
After a while and she was already in her room, I decided to walk in just to look around for a while.
I cracked the door open slowly, gladly she didn’t lock it, I sneaked in, but there still wasn’t any sign of her walking into the sitting room, so I decided to look around hoping deeply she doesn’t walk in or anyone comes in.
The first place that attracted my eyes were their pictures, I walked to the place to look through it.
The first picture I saw was Stella’s when she was little and presently. Then I saw her elder brother. Oh my God! This is my Jason, the guy I met at the park the other day.
To confirm my doubt, I look down to see a picture of where he was little standing alone, to prove everything, I saw a picture of my heartless husband hanged right beside them, but mine wasn’t there.
No, no! I can’t believe Stella is my daughter, I picked up one of her framed pictures along with Jason’s own staring at it still bewildered. It’s so hard for me to believe. I felt tears flowing from my eyes uncontrollably.
“Ma’am Karen?” A voice said snapping me out of my trance, the pictures even fell off mine hand breaking.
