Oh my God! I can’t believe what just happened. This is seriously my bad luck following me till here, in the midst of the ocean. Of all the things that could have happened! Okay, Aurélie, just breathe…deep breathe….
No, no, I can’t afford to take deep breathe right now. I have to think of some excuses or my parents are seriously going to give me an earache when they will arrive on the cruise.
The thing is…My parents called Evelyn last night when I was
on a date having dinner with Ethan. They wanted to know if everything was alright with the wedding and all then when…(I’m seriously not going to forgive Evelyn for this one!) Evelyn ‘slipped’ to them that I’m married. She said it was an accident, but seriously, this huge an accident is UNFORGIVABLE! And then she started babbling everything to them, Chicago, my wedding, my meeting up with Ethan again. I mean she told them ALL of it. Actually, Evelyn is like super scared of my Mom (She is scary!) And now my Mom forced Adam to send a jet to California (Did I mention that Adam is super mega rich? Well, he is!) so that she can get on the cruise’s next pick up point to meet me and ETHAN!!
As if my trouble isn’t enough,Adam’s best man will be coming for the wedding too! The guy who dropped ME at Adam’s engagement like hot potato because he thinks I’m too stubborn, childish and irritating. Yeah, meaning my ex-boyfriend will come aboard! And he’s a guy from those high class societies with a freaky accent whom my Mom likes! Seriously, my Mom just adored Jeremy- aka the ex-boyfriend.
So, yeah! I’m in deep, deep trouble. I can just bet that this trip will be a total nightmare. I have to get my mind off these things. I mean, my Parents and Jeremy are going to come TOMORROW morning. I’m not going to ruin THIS new day on the cruise for that. All I have to do is to continue planning Evelyn’s wedding and see that everything is going to perfection.
I stop in the wedding hall and start barking orders to dissolve my frustration. Seriously, these people here have absolutely no talent in decoration.
“NO! This is not right! This flower arrangement just doesn’t go with this deco! Seriously guys! Try to work your mind. I want lilies! White lilies!”
“What’s’up wifey?” Not in a good mood?” I hear Ethan’s voice behind me.
I turn around, and look at him dead in the eyes, “I’ve got TONS of things to do, so if you stay in my foot,you’ll have your face disfigured!” I really thought that my tone would have scared him. But instead, he just whistles and comes to kiss me good morning on the cheek. Now, HOW can I be angry when he’s behaving so sweetly?!!
I give a little cough and ask, “What do you want Ethan?”
“You?” The way he said it just makes my heart to beat a little too fast, and I turn my head to hide my flushed cheeks.
“Well, that’s not on the menu. My apology!” I retort in a fake sarcasm. He smiles at me, showing me his dimple, which doesn’t help my already racing heart a bit. I give a little cough to clear my throat and say, “Well, since you’ve already decided to disturb me here, you better help me out and try to be useful.”
“Sure.” He smiles.
He took orders from me for the last hour without question, and he proved himself to be useful. It’s not as if I’m getting soft towards him or anything. He’s still my mortal enemy. Okay, probably not mortal, but an enemy nonetheless since he decided to seduce me back again. Should that put him in my enemy list? I’m confused here…
“Adam asked me to be his best man for the wedding.” He converses casually while arranging rose’s petals in abowl.
“WHAT?” I yell.
“You heard me, Aurél!”
Okay, I did! But I’m…shocked!How COULD Adam do this to ME? ME!!
“Well, Adam already has his best man. Jeremy it is!” I inform him.
“Yeah, apparently, there will be two best men for the wedding. And I can’t wait to see that Jeremy.”
Why can’t he wait to see Jeremy??
“What d’you mean you can’t wait? He is your buddy too?” I ask with a raised eyebrow.
“What?” He puts a fake shocked expression on his face. “Of course not! Adam told me he was your ex. We’ll just show him that you’re happily married now! Right, baby?”
“Wrong!” I glare at him.
“And your parents too!” He continues as if I just didn’t deny him.
“Yeah! Adam told me that they are going to come with Jeremy tomorrow morning. Isn’t that nice?” He shows me one of his perfect smiles. “Apparently, they didn’t know that their little girl has already passed the ring.”
I think I’m going to faint.
“And Adam told me to be cautious with your Mother.”
“You and Adam are getting friendly, I see!” I stare moodily. Of all the people who could have betrayed me, I’d never have put Adam on that list. He always takes my side. But apparently, he decided to sides with the enemy…Well! If he wants it like that!
Extract from Ethan’s Journal: (4)
I carried the ring wherever I’d go. She told me she studied at UCLA, and I went there to look out for her. But apparently, she had already graduate and moved away from Chicago. My next move was to try to find her through a private detective. But my friend thought that if she left me, it was because she didn’t want to have anything to do with me and that I should forget her.
It hurt. But, he was right.
And I tried to forget her. And I think I succeeded too. Though, sometimes it was difficult to think about her. But I tried.
And now, she’s here in my life again, and playing with my heart.
But this time, I won’t let go. It’s going to be tough, I know that. But I won’t let her go. Simply put, I can’t let her go. The irony of it is that; I have to seduce my wife back again. And I know exactly how to do that. She doesn’t know it, but in the few hours I’ve been with her three years ago, I’ve learned all I needed to know about her. And the most important of it all is that, Aurélie Nora McCarthy doesn’t know what she wants in life. And me, I’m going to use this against her and let her know that what she wants is a life with me!
News: My exams are over! So I'll be able to write more regularly now!
