"What will I tell father, " Ema thought as she walked back to the reception.

She had been so rash that she accepted to go on a date with Nathan.

It was stupid but yes, she complied.

Seeing her father in such a foul mood at the reception made things a whole lot awful go her.

"Dad..." She made her presence known to him.

"Ema, why did you run off like that? Are you ok?" Mr Contreras demanded, examining he like he was sure she had been molested in his office.

The punk's lips was a devilish temptation and the sparks she felt when their body met was alarming, apart from that, Ema knew she was untainted.

"I'm fine Dad."

"So what did he tell you?"

"You got your job back."

She expected her father to be shocked or doubtful but instead, he was angry.

"What! How!"

"I don't understand you Dad, Didn't you want the job back?"

"Ema, I want you to tell me the truth and now, What did he do? Did he say anything?"

"No... I just accepted to go on a date with him."

Before Ema could react, her father latched at her arm and dragged her outside.

"Dad, you're hurting me!" Ema shrieked but he didn't as much care.

He continued dragging her until they reached the truck.

"Get in!" Mr Contreras commanded.

"No!" Ema retorted.

"Don't make me hit you!"

And just like that, her father had morphed into a monster. One her family had mysteriously become since she set foot in the city since she heard the name, Adriana.

"I don't understand you anymore. What is it that I'm doing wrong? I tried to help but it seems all you and mother want is to keep me under a lock and key."

"This is not the time to joke around Ema." Mr Contreras spat.

"I'm not going anywhere. I have a promise to keep." Ema voiced and turned away.

"Where do you think you're going?" Mr Contreras demanded, holding Ema.

"Leave her." A Stern voice warned.

Mr Contreras turned to see Nathan, hands in his rich pocket and with his winning smile.

"Leave us! This is a family matter."

"But physical assault isn't." Nathan chipped in.

Mr Contreras let Ema go and she ran behind Nathan.

Nathan walked up to the old man and whispered into his ear, "You pushed her away and the game hasn't even

managed to look classy and seductive.

"That must be expensive, " Ema noted.

"It is." The woman acknowledged, "Try it on."

Ema received the dress and went for the dressing room.

She slipped out of her tight jeans and top and tried the new one.

It fit like a glove and Ema gasped when she looked in the mirror.

"You look beautiful." A masculine voice said behind her and she turned to question Nathan but it wasn't Nathan.

"Who are you and what are you doing in the dressing room?" Ema demanded, scared of breathing.

"I know you're angry at father Adriana but he must have been busy." The teenager continued like he didn't hear what she had said earlier.

The teenager was tall for his looks and had trimmed hair, bleached, of course, he had chestnut eyeballs and a smile that seemed to be ingrained with him.

"What are you doing here?" Ema repeated.

"Why don't you want to remember Adriana? You know it's not your fault." The boy continued.

"I'll yell, " Ema warned, finding it creepy that the boy wasn't answering her and that he continued to talk like she didn't even exist.

Was he even real?

Ema began to feel dizzy instantly and the figure in front of her began to distort.

Bright light by the window side that wasn't there before made her eyes burn. She watched a force push the boy into the light and heard the sound of glass shattering.

As the boy plummeted to the earth of her distorted reality, Ema yelled his name.
