(He’s Cold – hearted, but he’s mine)
By: Faith Lucky
I rushed out of the house and met Nina and Diane and their eyes widened as soon as they saw me.
“Finally, she’s here!” Diane exclaimed.
“Hi” I said inaudibly as I got to where they were.
“Good morning, Cali” Nina beamed.
“Oh my God! Cali, so you were being serious when you said you were living with him? I thought you were joking!!!” Diane squealed and gripped my hand.
Gosh! I was expecting it.
“What’re you hiding from us, Cali? What’s the secret?? How….How are you suddenly so close to the Almighty Miquel? Whats happening???”
I sighed and withdrew my hand from hers.
Maybe I should just tell them truth once and for all.
“Well….” I began
“Just so you know, Miquel and I are dating” I spilled the drink and giving their eyes enough time to pop out, I laughed and started running away.
“Cali!!!” I heard Diane yell behind me, but didn’t stop to look at them.
I checked for my name on the list of people going for the next mission and good enough, my name was among.
Well,yeah. I guessed that was a good thing.
Diane’s name was among, but Nina’s name wasn’t.
The rest of the day, they kept asking and interviewing me about my relationship with Miquel, especially Diane. She was such a talkative.
I answered the little I could and tried as much as possible to avoid the rest.
We attended classes and finally, it came to an end.
The mission was just two days from now and with the look of things, I think its gonna be massive.
“So, you’re going out with him?” Diane asked as they accompanied me back to Miquel’s apartment.
I nodded happily.
Well, I just couldn’t hide my excitement. I had to tell them about the date.
“Have you two had S*x?” She asked and I gasped while Nina chuckled.
“Huh??? What the hell are you saying??? Of course, not. We’re just….normal couples” I exclaimed without looking at her.
“Seriously??? Normal couples?? And what do you think normal couples do?” She asked and I rolled my eyes without giving her an answer.
“The truth is, you’re so lucky, Cali” Nina said.
“How do you feel being around someone like him? Doesn’t it freak you out?”
I smiled and bit my inner cheeks.
“Well….it did freak me out. But not anymore. He’s a nice person”
I replied and Nina laughed.
“Nice whaaaat???” Diane shrieked.
“I can’t believe this is coming from you, Cali! Like seriously?”
“Yeah..whatever. He’s nice to me, okay?’ I rolled my eyes and she scoffed.
They kept talking and talking and finally, we got to the facade of the building.
“Okay; you’ll need to stop here. You can’t go any further” I turned to them and said.
“Seriously?? So….will your boyfriend beat us for paying our friend a visit?” Diane asked with a scoff.
“Really? If you can stand him, then come in” I rolled my eyes and started walking away, but didn’t hear them follow me.
I stopped and looked at them.
“What is it? Aren’t you coming along?” I asked with a smirk.
“Um….she can go along. But not me” Nina shook her head dramatically, taking some steps back.
“Um…..I’d have loved to come along as well, but…..I’ll come when he isn’t around” Diane also shook her head and took some steps back.
Gosh! Like seriously??
I looked at them and felt like laughing so hard.
“But why’re you so scared of him? He’s a nice guy” I said with a chuckle.
“Yeah….nice guy indeed. How’re we sure he doesn’t beat you up in the room?” Diane said, sticking her tongue out and Nina laughed.
I also laughed but actually….I was laughing for a different reason.
“Who knows? Maybe you’re actually looking for someone to save you from him. If you have a problem Cali, just tell us and we’ll help. I know Miquel is the most handsome and hottest guy in camp, but he’s scary and everyone dreads him. So, how can you tell us you’re dating?” She continued talking and placed her hand on her waist.
“Is he using you as. a s*x toy?” Nina asked lowly.
I busted into a more serious laughter and they stared at me, wondering why i was laughing.
“Listen to me, Cali” Diane said.
“Guys can never be trusted, especially guys like Miquel. So, don’t fall for his words. He’s only going to use and dump you. Its obvious he’s only attracted to your killer shape”.
She concluded with an eye roll and my laughter increased.
If only they knew……
“Guys like Miquel?” He asked from behind and I placed my hand on my lips to prevent me from laughing out.
The look on their faces were priceless as they heard his voice from behind them.
Well, he’s been standing and listening the whole time, but I was the only one who could see him.
Diane’s eyes were almost bulging out as she and Nina turned to look at him.
He wore a long robe and had his hands crossed behind his back.
“S……S….sir” Diane chuckled and moved back with Nina.
“We….we were actually talking about a different Mi…Miquel. He’s….he’s someone from my area. I’m sorry”.
And within the twinkle of an eye, they ran off like breeze.
Oh my geee!!
I finally released my lips and busted into serious laughter while Miquel just smiled.
“Special friends you’ve got, huh?” He chuckled and touched my hair.
“Um….hi” I said with a shrug when I was done laughing.
“Yeah..hi. How was classes today?” He replied casually, tucking my hair behind my ear.
“It was….fine. I guess” I said with a sigh.
“You ready for the date?” He asked and I nodded.
He prodded me to come with me and I did and followed him into the house.
I decided to take a shower In the bathroom and when I was done, I returned to the bedroom with just a short towel and my w€t hair packed and wrapped as well.
Thank goodness Miquel isn’t in the room.
I didn’t even wanna imagine what would have happened. But where did he go, huh?
Oh! Maybe he’s at the balcony.
I shrugged and was about heading for the wardrobe when I noticed his phone buzzed on the table.
The table was actually close to me and all I did was take a few steps and glance into the phone.
What if I call mom with it, huh? I’ve missed her.
The phone buzzed again and I discovered it was a message.
Without touching it, I glanced at the screen and saw the message on it.
The number of the sender wasn’t saved, but somehow, I felt it was from Mykel.
I flinched as I read the message:
📲Get ready for me, Miquel. Cause I’m gonna make you pay for all the humiliations you’ve caused me.
📲You feel you’re in love again, huh? You feel you can escape from it? But is your dear Cali aware you’re the King Of darkness">darkness?
📲Is she aware the darkness in your heart killed your parents and is definitely going to kill her as well?
📲Is she aware she’s only wasting her time by falling in love with you?
📲Well, I guess I’ll help her end it.
I felt my legs become cold as I went through it.
What’s the meaning of this?
