PEARL'S POV

"I was seven when I started noticing my mom's absence; she is out of the house before I wake up and I'm asleep when she gets back. For three years it continued that way with nannies and family members explaining to me that it was the workload. I can't even imagine how stupid they thought I was for them to give me those crappy lies. I believed them, I mean every of their words until one night. She came back home with dad in tow, they thought I was asleep already, I don't know what led to their fight but mom was complaining about dad's promiscuous ways, telling him she was tired of it all and if he pushed her too far, she'll end up revealing the truth and let the world know what my father was. You want to know what that secret is?" I nodded.

We were both lying on the bed with our back and our eyes fixed to the ceiling as if the story was being played and Richard was the narrator, it reminds me of a school play.

After the emotional moments had ended, reality kicked back in as it dawned on me that my father was actually gone. My tears ended after Richard threatened to call the doctor to give me a sedative so I could sleep for three days nonstop, the threat did the magic. I don't really know why he's telling me his story right now, if he thinks this is making me feel any better, he's absolutely wrong, I feel sad a little bit for him

"Essa, are you sleeping?" His breath fanned the back of my neck as he leaned closer trying to check if I was sleeping

"No, I'm not and move back, I don't like you breathing on my neck" I pushed him back a little

"I asked you somethi

ul'

'No, you're not. I just think I've had enough'

'Enough of what?"

'Enough of your angry face, all I want now is your happiness and in case you change your mind and decide to go home for your father's burial, I'm with you'

He proclaimed

'And after few months, it will all be over' I ruined the atmosphere with my words 'Don't try to pretend to be nice anymore, I might get too attached to you and it'll tear me apart when all these shows are over' I finished my words and lied down straight on the bed ignoring my legs that were now lying on his.

Okay guys! Update came late because I was enchanted by a book named After on Wattpad and the hooking level of that book is high, I swear. I've been on it all weekend and I'm still on the sequel. You can check it out if you're on Wattpad.

I want to share with you guys an upcoming book of mine that'll run from December 1st to 25th. I might end up writing the sequel of this book next year and that of this upcoming book. But guess what? December is going to be filled with amazing stories
