Emily's Pov :

Edward took huge steps away from me, first staring at me, then at the door and back again to stare at me.

I laughed nervosuly.

"Well well! I think I may need to squeeze up my bladder again! I must tell you I kinda felt asleep in bathtub today so water seeped into my hard fat skin, and it's tickling my kidney now! Anyway off to washroom!"

I retreated hurriedly, not meeting his eyes which were boring into mine in a cold fashion.

Closing the washroom's door, I rested my head against it to calm my racing heart.

What would Lara say? Would she know I am here?

What would Edward say for not contacting her all this time? Would she be mad?

Would he really go as far as telling her what we did accidently that night, to save his relationship with her!?

I pressed my ears on the door to listen to the conversation which didn't seem much hard as washroom was just steps away from his office. Opening door a little, I saw her beautiful angry face glaring daggers at his own handsome one, both of them standing at one place, none of them daring to move an inch, clouds of tension and pressure surrounding them.

"Why didn't you call me!?"

Putting my hand on doorknob, I opened the door slightly more to listen to her clearly.

Edward didn't respond to her.

"Edward, I fucking asked you the question!?

"What the fuck do you want me to answer Lara!? I had work to do. I'm a busy man and this company needs time, stacks of money is not the only thing holding this huge thing up all this time!"

Lara furrowed her eyebrows and her eyes flared in anger.

"I'm your girlfriend Edward! You ought to have time for me, if not for anyone else!"

"You were the one who fought with me for the stupidiest and ridiculous thing I have ever heard! So what would I have done? I didn't feel like responding to any of your foolish speculations!"

"Foolish speculations?! That's not some guess or my fucking imagination, Edward! I see very well about that girl swooning over you when you clearly are so oblivious to it!"

"Emily is my best friend! You already accepted that five years ago! You didn't seem to have any problem about it that time, then why fucking now!?"

"She clearly is smitten with you! She's in love with you! Open your damn button eyes to see it before she destroys all of you! I can't stand to see my boyfriend getting snatched by some poor country girl who wears shirts and pants and walks on ground as if world bows to her-"


Edward raised his hand to stop her, his eyes turning a shade darker.

"No. Edward! You don't understand! She's a cheapstake who's using you for her materialistic desire-"

"She never asked me for anything, Lara! Not even a penny-"

"Yeah? Because she's playing a role model of Mother Teresa! Always wearing the hat of goody-two shoes and luring people with her disguise of kind-hearted and benevolent shit-"

I covered my mouth to stop myself from gasping loud, tears pooling in my sad eyes. I never knew Lara hated me that much, otherwise I would never have agreed to marry Edward in the first place just seeing how much she is hurt by me.

"Lara!! You're crossing limits here! I can't tolerate a single bad word about her! She's my friend way before you were my girlfriend!"

Lara clapped her hands in a pure sarcasm, taking one step, clapping again only to walk fully towards Edward, this time clapping in pure hatred in front of Edward's face who himself was as angry as her.

"See, dear, you never cared enough to think worthy of me! It was always her! From the start and now, when it seems it's all ending, it's her again!"

"Lara, you've got it all wrong-"

"No! What did I even get wrong Edward!? That you think of her just as a friend? Yeah? Is it the case? Then what explanation would you give-"

"She's my friend-"

"Just let me complete, will you! Now where is your-" she started to search for something around the room, her hands ransacking fast and she bend under the table, disppearing slightly from my sight only to appear again after a minute, her slim hands holding something familiar.

Edward's phone.

"This" she showed the phone to him.

"It's my phon-"

She started to do something on

us!? Doesn't it mean she loves him so much?

My phone beeped an alert and I realized too late that I had dialed Lara's number unconsciously.

"Hello? Hello? Emily? Is that you!?

Atleast she had my number saved! Thank god!

Clearing my throat faintly, I picked up the phone.

"Hello. Lara! How are you!?"

"Why did you call!?" She almost yelled.

Woahhh! She is angry, all credit goes to me!

"Well, can we meet somewhere?" Words rolled out of my mouth before I could stop myself.

"Why do you want to meet me after all-"

"I want to tell you something. So, can we!?"

"I don't wa-"

"It's related to you! So?!" I tried again.

I heard her sigh loudly. "Fine. We ca-"

"That's perfect. Meet you tomorrow at 5 pm!"

"Hey-" I hung up fast, throwing my phone on the carpet and cursed myself for my own stupidity.

Nevertheless, no matter how I think about it, it sounds pretty good idea to me to meet her face to face!

It would be better to molify and sort out her misunderstanding together!

Though it wasn't actually a misunderstanding! It was a better understanding on her part, I suppose!

As I bend to pick my phone from the carpet, I heard shutter of windows and a very faint slide of the glass. Immediately I gripped the nearby glass vase in my fingers firmly, holding it with my both hands and advanced slowly and silently towards the bedroom window.

I saw a black figure lurking in the dark, black hoodie hiding it's face. I attempted to switch on the lights of the room when someone grabbed my arm and I kicked them on the legs in reflex. I heard a loud groan and

A soft wince. I threw the vase on its direction which collided respectfully with the wall and broke into pieces.

My hands balled in fists, punching it's face and the figure swinged it's legs to kick in my stomach.

We both rolled on the floor in opposite sides. Abruptly I stood up to see the figure kneeling on the floor, with its back at me. I ran forward to kick it again when it turned to my side and my eyes widened to see it was a girl.

A girl with a long scarlett hair.

She stood up, cracking her neck to the side, and flexed her fingers before stretching her spine. Her face was still covered with her hair and a black hoodie and I moved to turn on the lights.

Brightness clouded the room and my eyes widened like saucers used to feed elephant, to see who it was.

"Your kick still hurts too much, Emily!?", she said, wiping the little blood from the corner of her lips before tugging at her hoodie which fell on her shoulders to reveal her scarlett curls and she shook her head a little to ruffle her hair that fell across her face with some admirable prettiness.

Winking smartly at me, she extending a hand towards me for a handshake, her mouth chewing and popping bubblegum.
