Madi's POV:

It's four o'clock in the afternoon and it's time for my boss -slash- husband, third coffee of the day. But before I make his coffee, I need his signature first to some important documents which I also needs to pass to Sandy for dismissal to it's designated department.

I bring the documents in me and I was about to knock on his office door, when it instantly opened before my face. And the look of in a hurry Gabriel faced me.

"Opps! I'm sorry. Are you in a hurry, Sir?"

Do I really need to ask that... when I already know the answer?

"Yes, someone called me---"

"Stacey called you, Sir?"

"Madi---"

"Oh, it's okay Sir. I just need your signatures to some documents here, may I?" I smiled as if it's not a big deal to me.. and I'm not affected.

"Yeah, in my office." he opened the door and walked again inside. He didn't bother to take a seat. He just get the files and signed each one of them.

"Are you not going to read the contents?" -'Are you really can't wait to see and fuck again your ex? No.. your girlfriend again?'- I asked him just in my mind.

But he just smiled and returned to me all the papers.

"I dont need to. I know I can trust you, Madi."

I raised my eyebrow and throw a joke. "Really, what if it's a part of my modus to get some millions from your account?"

But instead of being alarmed.. "It's okay. You can get how much you want. And don't worry, I can give you anything you want, Madi."

I laughed inside... -'Yeah, you can give everything you want, except your heart.'-

And much to my surprise, he kissed me quickly on my lips.

"What the------" I react but he already exited the door. I gulped and laughed bitterly as I touched my lips.

We've been married for two weeks, but we barely see each other in his house. You can only count on your fingers the nights he spends his sleep in that huge but empty house. We're just seeing each other in the office, but after that.. we can have our own precious time at night.

And with that, I am really starting to think if he still needs me on his plan, because it's been two weeks that he didn't mention any of it to me. And because it's only once in a blue moon when he shows himself at night in his house, he didn't notice the time I came home almost every night. And there's also one time, I didn't come home and slept over in my old apartment, but he didn't notice it.

He continue his plan in chasing her, and I continue to become invisible in his eyes. Everyday, I need to smile and show him I'm okay, and everything around me were just okay.

But everyday.. smiling feels like wearing a mask, a lonely mask that keeps my real feelings inside. But do I have a choice? I chose this, right? So feel free for me to endure the pain of my stupidity.

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

"Madi, are you ready?"

"Yeah, I'm just going change my clothes in Gabriel's house."

It's friday night and we're going to celebrate this night in a night bar, together with her, Nancy, Greg and two of Greg's friend. And since Gabriel took an early out this afternoon, for sure he's also going to enjoy his night in between Stacey's legs.

"Why do you keep on calling it 'Gabriel's house'? Why don't you just call it 'our house?"

"Because that is not my house!"

"But you're married, that means it's conjugal property."

"Sandy, I don't have an interest with all the things and properties he have----''

"Yeah, because your only interest is to win his heart."

I didn't say anything, because it's true. And it just hurts me more to think, that my love for him grows everyday, but I can't do anything about it.

"You don't have to go home, Madi." I looked at her and she smiled. "I have a lot of dress, you know. You can borrow any one of it."

"It's okay, you don't need to do that."

"But what if you find your husband at home?"

"And so?"

"What if he stop you from going out tonight?"

"Oh, he can't do that! I didn't ask his whereabouts, so he doesn't have the right to question me!"

"Huh! Oh my, the brave Madi.. version 2.0."

I chuckled at her idea... 'brave Madi, version 2.0'.. I wish.

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

I actually listened to Sandy's suggestion. I didn't waste my time to go home and change my clothes. I just borrowed one of her killing dress.

"God! I've missed this!"

I said swirling in front of the mirror. I am wearing red and fitted dress which ended on my mid-thigh. And take note, it's in a strapped less style and perfectly fitted in all my curves.

"Oh my God, Madi! You're so fucking hot and sexy!"

"Oh.. I already know that, but anyway thank you."

She laughed at the way I answered back.

"I wish your husband can see you in that killing outfit tonight, I am sure he will immediately drop his revenge plan to his ex, and he will start to chase you around!" and it's my turn to laugh.

"That's not gonna happen, Sandy." I said popping my lips after I applied my favorite shade of red lipstick.

"Well, who would know? But anyway Madi, you really look confident and beautiful tonight."

I just smiled at her. It's actually my tags to myself. The ever beautiful, confident and strong Madi.

"Let's go." I get my bag and check again myself. I sighed and smiled at my reflection. I don't remember when was the last time I wear this smile and this confidence in me. But I promise tonight, I will be myself again. The real me.. the beautiful, confident and strong me.

Greg is waiting in the living room when I decided to come out. He immediately stand and smiled at me.

"Wow! It's been a long time since I saw you in that kind of dress. Should I say.. welcome back or congratulations you're back?" he said kissing my cheek.

"Come on, Greg. I'm still here. Nothing's change!" ... -'except my heart'-

"Okay, let's go?" he take my hand and put it on his arm as we walked our way to his black Maserati.

"Where's Nancy?" I asked when he opened the door at the passenger side, not before he opened the door for Sandy in the back seat.

"She's already at the bar. You know.. flirting with Lawrence."

I just shook my head and smiled. Nancy's original plan was to stay with us in Gabriel's house, but when she met Lawrence.. one of Greg's friend.. she decided to stay in Greg's apartment.

We arrived at the night bar at exactly seven pm. Sandy and I didn't wait for Greg to open our car door. Once we parked at the parking lot, we jumped out immediately from the car.

"Why didn't you wait for me?" asked the frowning Greg when he's already in front of us. But we just laughed at him. We started to walk towards the entrance.

"It's okay, you know we can do that for ourselves." I said putting my hand on his right arm. "But there's one thing we can't do tonight."

He looked down at me. "And that is?"

"And that is to pay our bills tonight." I shrugged my shoulders and winked at him. He laughed and scratched the back of his head.

"Tsk.Tsk. Fine!"

And my smile widened. "Thank you, Gregy. You're so cute." I pinched his right cheek.

"Tss! You don't know that... it's inborn." he proudly stated.

"You're leaning from the expert, huh!" I said chuckling.

"Of course! You're my best teacher." and he also winked at me. I just smiled and rolled my eyes.

The loud music is now starting to rock the night club when we entered the entrance. Greg lead us to the VVIP section and that's where I found anothe

r Greg's friend, Luis.

"Where's Nancy and Lawrence?"

I can't help not to ask when I noticed the two were missing. And he pointed them through his mouth. We followed his gesture and we found the two in the dance floor.

"Wow! She's now rocking the night!" I said shaking my head.

"Yeah. Tsk.Tsk." Greg said and seated himself beside me. "What do you want to drink?"

I smiled at his question. "You don't need to ask, anything is fine with me."

"Okay." he shrugged and stand again to get our drinks.

Greg knows me well. He knows how much is my tolerance when it comes to alcohol. I can drink the whole bucket of beers without being drunk. We had the same course in college and we were both used in these kind of drinks.

After of dancing wildly and rocking herself in the dancefloor, Nancy finally decided to sit down.

"Hi, Sissy." she hugged me and kissed my cheek. You can smell the alcohol on her breath.

"Don't get yourself too drunk, Nancy." I said patting her arm.

"Of course, Sissy." she smiled at me. "How are you and my jerk of a brother?"

"Still the same." I answered as I avoided her gaze.

"Tsk.tsk.tsk. Don't worry, the wheels knows how to roll itself."

And that's when Greg back with two glasses of devil spring vodka in his hands. My smile widened when he gave to me the other glass.

"What's that?" Nancy curiously asked.

"Devil spring vodka." I smiled as I proudly answered.

"Is that strong?"

"Hmm.. 80% of alcohol."

"Huh! You can drink that, Sissy?" her eyes turned wide but Greg just chuckled with her reaction.

"Yeah... I can also drink the whole bucket of beer without being drunk."

"Oh my! But how can you do that?"

"Five years of facing and drinking almost all kinds of alcoholic drinks, can make you immune, Nancy. And Madi has a strong tolerance when it comes to that." Greg answered beside me. Actually I am sitting in between them.

"Wow, can I see how you drink the whole bucket, Sissy?" she squealed beside me but Greg glared at her.

"Nancy!"

But Nancy just ignored him.

"I have an idea!"

And the next thing she did surprised us all. She run towards the stage and speak through the microphone.

"Good evening ladies and gentlemen! I have a friend over there. She's actually my sister in law." she pointed on where we were seated. "She has a high tolerance in alcohol. Now... is there anyone of you can fight with her in a bottoms up competition?" she shouted loudly and the crowds started to make their noice. "I am willing to give ten thousand dollars, to anyone who can defeat my sister in law! Five bottles only? Who wants to join?"

Greg gritted his teeth while watching his cousin, collecting some guys from the crowd.

"It's okay, Greg. I'm used to this." I said patting his arm.

"But Madi----"

"It's fine. In fact I've missed this." I stand and winked at him.

The crowd gave us some space and placed the buckets of beers in the middle. And then the battle has begun. I am really enjoying this. Nancy, Sandy and the two friends of Greg were cheering for me. But my killjoy friend with the name of ---Greg---, he's just standing beside me and checking me from time to time. I wanted to laugh at his face but I need to finish my battle.

And After ten minutes.. bottoms up! I won!

"Yes!" Sandy and Nancy squealed in unison as they hugged me and kissed my both cheeks. But their faces were far from Greg's face after that. He's frown got deeper.

"Are you okay?" he asked me holding me by my elbow.

"Of course.. it's just an alcohol, duh!" I answered laughing.

We headed back to our seats and continue our drinking sessions. We laughed, we danced and we rocked the whole club upside down. I felt so free, as if I really belonged to this world. I let out all my stress in this night, as I know I have to face again my own battle tomorrow.

It's already one o'clock when we noticed the time. And we all decided to cut this party-party and headed our way home. Greg drove me home and opened the the car door for me. He even helped me get out of his car as if I am going stumble anytime.

"Thank you, Greg. I enjoyed this night, so much."

"You're welcome, Madi. You know I'll do everything for you, right." he said seriously.

"Greg..."

"I know. But there's nothing changed, Madi. I'm still the Anderson boy that you know eight years ago."

I smiled and I hugged him.

"Thank you, Greg." When I pulled back, I looked at him. "But you know, we all know everything's changed."

"I know but not me. And you don't have to tell me the things that changed about you."

"What do you mean?"

"You love him." I gulped and straightened my body. "I can see it through your smile, how your eyes shines everytime you heard his name. But like what I said before, I'll wait for you Madi."

"Greg----" he put his forefinger on top of my lips.

"I waited for you for eight years, and I'm willing to wait for another eight years again or more than that if you want."

I take his hand on me. "Greg.." I don't know how to explain to him my feelings.

"Madi, just let me do this, please? This is all I can do for you. To be on your side whenever you need me. Atleast I can be the friend that you need. I'm still here, Madi."

And because I can't form any words, I just hugged him again.

"Don't be pressure with this, huh? I'm not telling you this to pressure yourself and to avoid me. I just want you to know that you can have me as your friend or.... something else, you know." he shrugged and I punched his shoulder.

"Thank you again, Greg. You don't know how lucky I am to have you as my friend since the beginning."

"Ouch! I'm just your friend." he faked his hurt expression.

"Greg!"

"I'm just kidding. So, I'm going ahead?"

"Yeah, take care. And thanks for the drinks." I winked at him.

He chuckled. "No problem. Good night, Madi." he kissed my forehead.

"Good night, Greg. Take care!" I waited for him to enter his car and drive away until he's already out of my sight.

Then I walked my way towards the wooden door. All lights were already turned off but I have my own key, in case the door were also locked. I am humming my country song when I entered. I put back the key inside my bag with my phone in my hand. I was about to take my first step when I heard the booming voice from the living room and the lights were turned on. Then I saw the angry face of my 'husband'.

"Where have you been?"

I gasped as I put my hand on my chest. I almost drop my phone because of so much shock.

-'For goodness sake! Why is he still up at this hour?'- I asked myself looking at him directly.

"I just go out with my friends." I casually answered after I composed myself.

"Go out with your friends, Madi? At this late of hour?" he shouted at me. I can't believe it, he really shouted at me?"

"Hey wait, Mr. husband! Why are you mad?" I asked him while laughing sarcastically.

"Why am I mad? You're seriously asking me that question, Madielyn?" my eyes widened with that.

"Wow! So, I am Madielyn to you now, dear husband?"

"Are you drunk?"

Am I drunk? No! A little tipsy maybe.. but drunk? Nah!

"I'm not drunk! And excuse me, I just want to take rest." I brushed past him but he grabbed my hand.

"Where have you been, Madi? You didn't answer my question seriously!"

-'You didn't answer my question seriously.'- I mimicked his words in my head before I laughed at his face.
