Sophia's POV:

After our lunch together with Mr. and Mrs. Giovanni, we all go in our separate ways. Daniel and I were back into being 'normal' couple again, and when I say normal it means 'I don't care about you and mind your own business' motto.

I didn't ask him or even talk to him about our kiss, as I don't want to talk about it anymore. Well, maybe because I just don't want to hear his insensitive comments.

After we said our goodbyes to the couple, I turned to go back inside the mall. But I didn't notice that he followed me, I was just shocked when he grabbed my arm inside the men's boutique.

"What are you doing here?" I asked barely a whisper.

"I should be the one to ask you that question, sweetheart." He whispered as he pulled me closer to him. "What are you doing inside the men's boutique?" I gulped when his hold tightened.

I raised my eyebrow when I noticed the hard glare that he's giving me.

"It's none of your business, sweetheart." I smiled pushing him away but he didn't budge a bit.

"Don't you dare give me that fucking line, Sophia! What are you doing inside this men's boutique?" He asked me through gritted teeth.

"Why do you want to know?" I ignored his question and continued to ask him back.

He grabbed my waist and pulled me closer to him that I almost bumped into his chest.

"Don't test my patience, Sophia or I swear I'm gonna kiss you right here, right now and I'll make sure that we will be in all headlines tomorrow!"

I was left open-mouthed when I heard his words.

"Then do it." I smiled at him and when he was about to kiss me, I pushed him and took a step backwards. "Just kidding!" I continued to step backwards. "Craig wants me to buy him a new necktie! Are you happy now, sweetheart?"

That made him stop and I sighed inwardly. I tried to walk past him but he grabbed my arm.

-'Oh, my goodness!'- I murmured as I almost bumped again into his chest.

"Why does he wants you to buy his necktie?" He asked me, his face was just mere inches away from mine.

"And why not, I can't see anything wrong with that?" I asked him back, ignoring the urge within me to look at his soft and red lips as I remembered the kiss we had shared earlier inside the restaurant.

"Can't he do that for himself?"

I thought we were cleared that we will not interfere in each other's personal lives and activities, but why is he acting like he cares and on top of that, he seems jealous?

"You sounded like a jealous husband, sweetheart?" I smirked and patted his cheek. "Don't worry, I will be faithful to you until the last seconds of our contract."

"I'm not jealous, and don't be assuming, woman!" He sneered as he dropped my hand. "You're not special to me, Sophia, and not all men will fall for your charm. And always keep this in your mind, we're just married because of an agreement nothing more, nothing less."

He looking straight into my eyes.

"Another thing, you are nothing to me so don't assume things like I'm jealous of every man in your life!"

-'Ouch! That's too much.'-

I was left speechless after that even when he walked out of the boutique and he's no longer in front of me.

"Ouch!" I sighed and just focus on my purpose why am I inside the boutique.

Tsk.tsk.tsk. I will never forget the three types of people in my life. #1. Who left me in difficult times. #2. Who helped me in difficult times, and #3. Who put me in difficult times.

The moment I was about to open my car, my eyes landed on the two people in the parking lot. The back of the girl was facing me, but the man's face was on a clear display, and he's none other than my own husband. I averted my eyes when he suddenly glanced at me wearing his signature smirk.

I gulped the sudden unexplainable feeling inside as I opened the door and tried not to look back at them. I know it's his personal life and as I said, I have no right to interfere with it, but we also talked about having an affair 'secretly' and not publicly.

What was that all about? I was just thinking, what if I was the one who did that stupid thing and he caught me kissing another man in the parking lot, what will be his reaction to that?

"Really, kissing another girl in the parking lot? What a fucking shit was that?" I asked myself chuckling as my knuckles turning white on the steering wheel. "You're questioning me about buying a tie for Craig, but you're the one having an affair with another girl? How fucking dare you, Daniel Kelley?

I banged my hands again in frustration as if he can hear what I was mumbling.


"Sophia, what are you doing here?"

That was Craigs's first question when he opened the front door of his apartment which was also my former apartment... No, let me rephrase that.

He opened the door of 'our apartment ', I can still call it my apartment because I am just temporarily staying in my husband's house for one year.

"Let me in and I'll explain it to you inside."

He opened the door widely and I walked past him pulling my purple suitcase behind me.

"Do I have to get some snacks and a pitcher o

f juice before you start? Because I think that's a long story to tell, am I right?"

I rolled my eyes and throw myself on the couch.

"Yes, please."

"Okay, wait a minute."

He was about to disappear in the living room when I called his name.

"Ahm... Craig, I don't like to drink an orange juice today, you can make anything but just not an orange juice."

"Wow sister, choosy?"

"Come on, Craig, please?"


I sighed and spread my legs on the couch. After five minutes, he came back with a tray of bacon and cheese pizza and a pitcher of an apple juice in his hands.

"Wow, pizza! I missed this, Craig. Thank you." I gave him a flying kiss before shoving the first slice inside my mouth.

He chuckled as he gave me my glass filled with an apple juice.

"Hey, take it slow, girl!" He said patting my hand when I was about to bite my second slice of pizza. "Why does it seems like you haven't eaten pizza in a year?"

I chewed the last piece and swallowed it quickly before answering his question.

"Craig, I am an Italian girl, what do you expect? It's my favorite flavor, cheese and bacon."

He just shook his head and took his glass of juice in front of him.

"Anyway, how are you and Gavin Montero, are you now together------ shit, Craig!"

I didn't finish my question as I screamed when he suddenly spit out the juice from his mouth.

"What happened to you?" I asked crunching my face as I wipe the table with tissue.

"I'm sorry, but it was your fault."

"How does it become my fault?"

"Because you suddenly brought up his name." He said glaring at me.

I chuckled as I get another slice of pizza.

"What's wrong about mentioning his name, huh? I just wanted to know the status of your relationship." I emphasised the last word.

He rolled his eyes. "We're okay and we're friends, that's all."

"Hmm... Okay." I shrugged grinning widely at him.

"Anyway, let's talk about the reason why you suddenly barged in here again, and the meaning of bringing your purple suitcase. Does your husband kicked you out of his house?" He asked raising his eyebrow at me.

"Of course, not." I put the glass down on the table. "I brought some of my personal things because I'm going to stay here 'again' until the day of our competition."

"What?" He straightened his seat. "I don't get it?"

"I need to stay here so we can rehearse often and prepare for the grand finals."

"Uhuh... so you mean to say we can't rehearse and prepare for the finals if you're staying in your husband's house?"

"No, that's not what I meant. As I was saying, we can practice more often if I stay here for the rest of the week until the finals."

"Are you sure that's just the real reason?" He asked eyeing me suspiciously.

"Yeah, and don't you think it's an advantage for us because we can practice anytime we want?"

"Tss! Come on, Sophia Yzabelle Del Mundo, I mean Kelley, don't give me that bullshit explanation of yours because I won't buy that!"

"But that's just my reason-----"

"No, I know you too well, Sophia. Come on, spill the beans."

I sighed before explaining to him what happened to me and Daniel earlier at the restaurant, our little fight inside the men's boutique and what I saw at the parking lot.

He listened to me while I was sharing my story but the reaction I got from him was something I wasn't expecting. He suddenly burst out laughing, clutching his stomach.

"Was there something funny with my story? Tell me, which part of it that made you laugh?" I asked sarcastically, but he laughed again shaking his head.

"Oh, my God, Sophia! Was that all your reasons on barging in here again, just because you're annoyed by what he did?"

"Yes and because I want to make all the steps perfect before------"

"No, you're jealous, because you saw him kissing another woman right after he kissed you inside the restaurant. And that's the real reason why you're annoyed because you're jealous, girl."

I was taken aback when I heard what he said, but I just chuckled sarcastically.

"Me, jealous of what he did?" I asked pointing to myself. "Craig, how many times do I have to tell you that I will never fall in love with him? He can kiss whoever he wants to kiss and I don't fucking care! Didn't you hear my story, he said I'm not special and I was just nothing to him!"

"Yeah, that's what he said but what about you?"

"Oh, my God, Craig! You know what, I'm tired of explaining this thing over and over again! I'm not jealous, and if that's what he feels for me then fine, I feel the same! And I'm not planning to be someone who I'm not just to become special in his eyes, duh!"

I said waving my hands in the air as I stood up and grabbed the handle of my suitcase.

"One last thing before you take your rest!"

I glanced back at him and raised my eyebrow.

"Does your husband knows that you're going to stay here again?"

"No, and I don't care! He can mind his own fucking business and I'll do mine!"

I said pulling my bag towards my room without looking back at him, so I missed the mysterious smile that crept on his lips..
