Onika's POV......

A day before I would never have imagined I would be standing on a terrace of an extravagant hotel in Los Vagus. But here I am. I have never seen something like this, it's simply..... breath taking.

I looked at the view infront of me, completely awestruck. Millions of lights dazzling infront of my eyes, like tiny stars on earth, cold breeze blowing past my face in a complete bliss, I just lost myself in the view.

It was then I realized, I was smiling, and it's that kind of smile which makes your cheeks hurt but you just can't help it.

I shuddered at the realisation, a bit taken aback by my own reaction. I always have to put this fake smile infront of people, that will just go away as soon as they avert their gaze, I have lost count since how long it has been like that....since how many years. It became a part of who I am. A constant.

But at this very moment I don't have to pretend, because I actually am happy, there is no pretending. It's like there is an aura of peace surrounding me, which will keep my demons away.

I felt someone's intense gaze on me.

I crooked my head a little to the side to look at Jacob, to find him looking intently at me, in a way that can make anyone's heart flutter.

"It's beautiful." I said.

"I agree.... beautiful." He repeated, his eyes never leaving mine.

He always has this glint in his gaze which can make you feel as if he can look directly into your soul, no matter how hard I try to keep my guards high.

"So you come here often? The way the staffs were treating you, looks like you are their important client." I asked, he just gave me a sheepish look.

"Don't tell me you are the owner?" I asked incredulously.

"You can say that, actually It was my grandfather's, I got it in inheritance."

"You were really close to your grand parents, weren't you?" I asked carefully.

"I was more close to my grandparents then I will ever be to my own parents..." He said, a bitter expression taking over his expressions.

How strange is this world, some doesn't have any family and those who have aren't happy either. Nothing defines happiness, or maybe it's not the relationship but the person you are in relationship with is what defines it.

Not knowing what to do, I squeezed his hands gently to offer comfort.

I could see the turmoil of various emotions in his eyes, I gulped the saliva down my throat. He suddenly averted his gaze away from me, as if trying hard to hide the trouble he is going through...not wanting me to see it.

It was silent for a few minutes. I was internally cursing myself for ruining the moment, when he suddenly spoke.

"Do you want to hear a story Onika?" His eyes still trained forwards, refusing to meet my gaze, in an attempt to hide his vulnerability.

I took a shaky breath and took a step backwards, as if struck. I still remember the story of the caged bird he told me, and I can't help but note the similarities between the caged bird and me.

So when he asked me if I want to hear a story, I knew something big was coming, and I think I have an idea of what it is. Before I can take another step back he caught my wrist, his hold was firm, yet gentle.

"There is no more running away this time..." He said in a whisper, I wasn't sure whether he was talking to me or himself.

I took a deep breath to prepare myself for what was coming.

"Once there was a boy, who didn't use to believe in love, he heard people say finding true love is not easy. The boy arrogantly thought to himself 'of course it is not easy, because it doesn't exist, simple.'

He thought he had things figured out in his life. Everything was planned. He was the one in control and things will go the way he wanted them to, and he won't have it any other way.

Everything was perfect, or so he thought.

He thought what could go wrong?

What he didn't realize was, Everything.

Everything could go wrong, all it took was just a girl with beautiful doe ey

fter years I won't be sure if I will be able to love again, and I am not about to ask him to wait for me till eternity, beacuse I know if I ask, that is what he will do, without batting an eye.

It was as if Jacob had read my thoughts, "hey, don't blame yourself, I didn't tell you this to prove anything, I just did it because...."he trailed off.

So I completed for him, "because you can't take it anymore."

He didn't say anything, just leaned forwards and rested his forhead against mine, a serene expression taking over his features, as if he had found his peace.

I could have died of heartache at that moment.

I didn't know for how long we stood that way, I was just rooted to my place as still as a statue carved of stone, afraid to make any movement that will break his moment of peace.

I could even feel Jacob's heartbeat, the warmth radiating from him.

After a while, he reluctantly let go and pressed a soft feather like kiss on my forehead.

He backed and looked into my eyes, a soft reassuring smile playing across his lips, as if everything was back to normal, as if trying assure me every thing was okay, but I know it is taking everything in him not to show his vulnerability for my sake, as it is taking everything in me not to get knocked on my knees and ask you his forgivness, for making him go through all this.

And at that moment, I just wanted to say 'kill me Jacob, it would be easier than see you hurting, see both of us hurting.'

You are not worth the lives you have destroyed Agustin, you are a fool not to realise that the best thing that ever happened to you is not me, as you once said, it's Jacob. And you can never ever repay him back, never.

"Oh, I almost forgot." He suddenly said and took out something from his pocket. "I have something for you."

He took my hand and put a small box on it, urging me to open it.

I opened it with shaky hands.

What I saw took my breath away, it was a beautiful little pendant.

It was simply beautiful, I can't help but think it must have cost him a fortune.

I took the pendant out.

It was a small bird with her wings outstretched.

"A bird." I said almost unconscious, completely fascinated by it.

Jacob nodded and said, "not just any bird, it's a phoenix, every time a phoenix burn in flames, it rise again from its own ashes, being whole again, stronger than before, as pure as before."

Tripping my chin up, he met my eyes, and the next thing he said made my heart skip a beat, " You are the phoenix."

***************

Oh gosh I am feeling really bad for Jacob, every one got their one shot at happiness except for him, this is what I call being unfair.

Christ, I hate my self for doing this to him, sorry jack.

Thank you, Love, Ricky ??
