I knew something was wrong the minute I stepped into the room. Call me weird, but I don’t really care, and my suspicions were confirmed when I was brought face to face with the devil’s reincarnate.
Meet Jason Zac, perfect definition of the bad boy, he has the looks, carriage and even the money to go with it, too bad he has an ego as tall as a palm tree. I hate Jason, lemme tell you why…
“Alicia, you there?”
Oops! guess I zoned out while thinking about… I don’t even want to mention his name and what the hell was he doing here anyway? Last I saw him was five years ago and he was just fourteen. He has really changed though, I’ll give him that, but that doesn’t change the way I feel about him, I hate him more than I hate the devil himself.
Argggh! Let’s get this meeting over and done with so I don’t have to see his ugly face.
“So Alicia and Jason, the reason we called you both here is to inform you that you both will be getting married as soon as you graduate from high school.”
When my dad called this meeting, I thought he was going to scold me or something, but when he said it was about me and Alicia, I knew then that something wasn’t right, but I decided to go anyways, he’s still my father after all. I got there before her and tried to make my mum tell me what this was all about, but all attempts proved futile as she wouldn’t budge. Guess I have to wait to find out and I hate waiting for any reason at all. Call it ego or anything, but I’m the kind of person who believes people should wait for me and not the other way round. Where the hell is that girl? She’s keeping us waiting.
Speaking of Alicia, I haven’t seen her in five years; the last I saw her was during a business contract between our parents and for some reasons, she suddenly stopped talking to me after she turned twelve. I have no idea what I did or what happened that brought about this sudden change but I guess I’ll find out soon enough.
Immediately I concluded that, she walked in and damn I was speechless. Puberty had hit her and she now looked far more beautiful and curvy than when I left her, but she still had this hate look in her eyes. Seriously? It’s been five years now, what did I do to her?
Just when I was racking my brain, trying to figure out what I could have done to make her hate me so much, dad dropped the bombshell…
Alicia laughed out loud and damn, it was beautiful. Her parents just died, but she didn’t feel the impact that much. I guess she really feels safe with my dad and mum…
I couldn’t help but laugh when Max told me I was getting married to Jason. They really did know how to make me feel better.
“Alicia, we’re serious about this, your father and I have been friends for years now, so we decided that you and Jason will get married as soon as you’re done with high school.”
“My father would never have given me out to a guy I barely know. No, I don’t believe this.” And with that, I stormed out of the room into mine, slamming the door shut and cried my eyes out. I cried because it was true, I was going to get married to a guy I hated, I cried because I missed my parents like hell, and I cried because my life was about to ruined…
To be continued…
