SCARLET

Luke parted away from one of our longest kiss and whispered, "I hate it to break it to you, but I kinda have someone to talk to, but this won't take long, I promise."

My brows met. "Do you often have a meeting at this hour? It's 7:30."

"Kinda." He pressed a quick kiss on my lips. "Will you wait for me here?"

"Where would I go?"

"Don't walk out on me again, please."

I chuckled. "Okay."

Whenever I was with him in the same room, I tend to lose myself, like there's no point in resisting. It's frustrating. He didn't even get to tell me about Stacy. All I got was his reputation for being honest, or maybe he was just like me. He wasn't ready for sharing a part of his life, just like I wasn't ready for telling him about my past.

It shouldn't really a big deal for him. Our relationship would be over in two months, and he'd be my stepbrother forever.

While waiting for him, I took out my phone and called Katherine. She knew I was going to return the earring, but she didn't know I won't be home tonight. I could already imagine her reaction. She would be furious, but I still tell her everything.

She answered the phone in one ring.

"Hey Kath, I'm sorry – uh – I won't be home tonight, " I informed.

"Kath's in the bathroom, Scar." It wasn't her who answered. It was Nate. Damn it.

"Hey, Nate…"

"Where are you?" he asked in a hard tone.

Did Katherine tell him about the earrings? No, Kath would not do that to me.

I cleared my throat. "I just I'm staying outside tonight. You don't need to know."

He exhaled sharply. "You're with your stepbrother again, aren't you? Anthony's here looking for you, you know?"

"What?" I exclaimed in panic. Anthony was certainly moving fast. "Why would he be there?"

"Sorry. I didn't know you wouldn't be here. And why would you go there again, Scar?" he sounded even more furious.

Ugh, there's no point in lying. "Fine. I'm with him in his office at AT. So what?"

"Listen to me. You are digging up your own grave again. This time, I might

?"

"Yes, who else?"

She bit her lip nervously. "It was ten minutes ago. She seemed to be in a hurry."

Ten minutes. She could still be in the building.

"Fuck!" I cursed under my breath and brushed my hair harshly. I hurried to the elevator and took the last floor. This woman had the skill to get me upside down all the time. I don't fucking chase a woman. This wasn't me.

When I reached the ground floor, I paced towards the reception desk and asked if they saw her. To my disappointment, I did not know that the employees at the reception desk are incompetent as well as the secretaries. They did not fucking see her. I sprinted outside the building.

I pressed my phone in my ear, calling her number, but until the third ring, she's still not answering.

Come on, witch.

I brushed my hair in frustration. This isn't me. I don't do this kind of shit.

I roamed my eyes around, but what made me stop looking was a scene I couldn't be wrong. I narrowed my eyes at the witch in front of my building with another man. Her body pressed tightly against him.

The usual thing I would do was to get away since I don't deal with fucking liar—not to mention unfaithful ones. But my blood boiled instantly that I found my feet pacing towards them.

I saw this kind of scene before. This thing had happened to me a long time ago.
