The only thing I hated the most is when someone is forcing me to do something I do not want to do. I mean, who wouldn’t hate it, right? My parents, when I was young, is still not forcing me to do things they knew that could make me hate them. They would even spoil me for all the luxury they could give me. But everything really change for a reason. The problem is I don’t know what that reason is.

And now I am so much irritated to Vren who is now dragging me without any care. When I almost got trip, he just looked at me like telling me ‘Are you stupid?’ Can you believe that?

“Can you please let my hand go?” I said, trying to remove his hand on mine.

We stopped infront of his car. I immediately turned my head to the glass window to look at my friends inside the coffee shop. They are still looking at us with jaw dropped. Hell. I wish they could help me with this but in their state? I know they couldn’t.

Vren let my hand go and faced me with creased forehead. “Shut your mouth up. You are annoying.”

I was taken back on that but immediately got over with it. “You know what? I quit! Take me back to our house!” then I entered his car.

Flouncing, I slammed his door before I sat and fastened my seatlbelt, do not care if he’ll get mad because I am more than mad. After that I crossed my arms, frowning. My mood was really ruined. Taking a breath deeply could not even light up my mood and it is making me more frustrated.

Seconds had passed but Vren is not yet coming inside the car so I had no choice but to look at him, irritated because of his slow movement. And there, I saw him still standing in his position with hands on his hips and elbows turned outward. His eyes were directly looking at me, despite of the tinted window of his car. Like he could even see me through it. Like he knew that I am looking at him too.

But I came back to my senses and opened the window. I furrowed my brows as I look at him.

“What are you still doing in there? Aren’t you going to drive? Or you don’t want me here? Just tell me so I could find a taxi.”

He licked his lips before moving. When he came in, our eyes met again and I snorted. I saw him shook his head and after that he started the engine quietly.

I tilted my head because of that but before I could speak to ask him his problem, my phone vibrated inside my sling bag. I slid my hand inside to get my phone. My dear boyfriend texted.

Alec: Let’s meet, hon. I miss you.. Where are you?

“Wait. Stop the car!” I blurted.

“What?” Vren turned to me with a confused face but he did not do what I said.

“I said, stop the car! I am going to pee!”

He was confused he did stopped the car on the side of the lane. “Can’t that wait until we get in your house? We‘re almost there—”

“It can’t!” I said while quickly unlocking the seatbelt. When I finally unlocked it, I immediately opened the door but a firm hands held my arms tightly. My brows automatically furrowed as I looked at him. “What?”

“Where are you going to—”

“None of your business!” I said as I pulled my hands, went out and slammed the door.

I looked at my wrist watched and decided to run. But before I could do that, I heard him went out the car too. When I looked back, he was standing outside his car. His hands were on its roof.

“Chantylle!” he shouted, his eyes were so dark.

I rolled my eyes after that I ran towards the mall. My phone rang as I ran. I answered it without looking who the caller is.

“Hon, you did not reply. Where are you?”

“I’m at the mall near our house. Let’s meet here. Park your car on the back.”

“Huh? Are you okay? Why is your breathing like that?”

“I am running!” I breathed.

“Running? Why are you running? Is someone following you?!” his voice became critical and loud.

“What? Following? No! Damn. I will explain it to you later when you are here in the mall. For now, I will end this call because this is obviously disturbing me,” I stated as I hung up the call.

I did not waste anytime. Vren is not dumb, I know that. As of now, he might realized that I was just fooling him around. That is the reason why wh

en I entered the mall, I bought clothes and changed inside the public restroom. I made sure that I won’t be recognized easily.

Alec texted me again after a few minutes. I replied that I will wait for him near the escalator where there are a lots of people.

“Chantylle?” Alec’s voice filled my ears after how many minutes.

“Hon!” I exclaimed as I gets up. I hugged and kissed him in his cheeks. “You’re late..”

“Hon, what are you wearing? You look like a kidnapper.”

I sneered and took a step back because of what he have said. I crossed my arms and rose an eyebrow on him.

“This is my style for today,” I hissed.

“What about what you said earlier? Why are you running—”

“Don’t mind it. I was just running away from Vren Marzon,” I said nonchalantly while checking my nails. I grimaced on it. The last time I went to a spa was last month!

“Vren Marzon? I didn’t know you are connected to him. You’re friends with him?”

I snapped out of my thoughts and lifted my gaze up to him. That is when I realized what I have just told him. Slowly, I bit my lips to stop myself from telling him more informations. I nodded my head at him.

“Yup. Just a friend..” I lied.

He was about to asked again when I decided to ask him sweetly to watched a movie. He immediately nodded and forgets everything. His mind was already clouded with dating. He was the one who bought our tickets and never let me to go with him. His reason? He doesn’t want me to be uncomfortable.

“Here, hon. Hold this first. I couldn’t take the change,” he said, chuckling.

I smiled and took the popcorn. He kissed me on my cheeks before he walked towards the counter again. Meanwhile, I checked my phone and lots of messages from Vren was the one to appeared in my eyes.

Vren: Where are you?

Vren: Answer my fucking calls!

Vren: You sneaked out with your boytoy?

Vren: You will be doomed.

Scared at his texts, I put my phone back to my sling bag. Alec who was walking towards my direction saw what I did. His eyebrows furrowed as he handed me our drinks.

“What’s wrong? What happened?”

I gulped and shook my head repeatedly before standing up. “Let’s go?”

Alec and I had been together for almost two years. I was sixteen when he courted me. I, who believed that it should be the relationship that needs to be prolong not courtship, said yes to him after his few months of courting. He’s a sweet, jolly and fun-to-be with boyfriend. I knew, he’s the best for me.

Of course, my parents did not knew about it. Back when everything was normal, I planned to tell it to them but they were so busy that I couldn’t even talk a bit. That is why I chose not to tell them first. But now that everything is a mess, I do not think I telling it to them is the best decision to do. For now, I will keep our relationship to myself. When the right time comes, I will immediately tell it to my parents.

“Thank you, hon. I really had a great time today..” I said when I went out of his car and the cold windy night hugged my skin.

Alec smiled and kissed my forehead. “No problem. Anytime, hon. Next time again?”


He bid his goodbye to me and after that he left. I turned to our house to went in but I stopped in midstep. With widen eyes, I stared like a fool at the person who is standing in the doorway.


“Get inside,” he said firmly and with full of authority. His face were so serious that made me almost shiver in nervousness.

A man appeared behind Papa. My gaze went to him and an enormous rage flared up into me. Vren who is looking at me with blank eyes, was standing cool and proudly behind my father with his hands on his pockets.

Papa came inside and so as Vren. I immediately followed them with so much fear at the same time fury for the person who is on Papa’s back.

“Broke up with that man,” Papa said when he sat on the long sofa in the living room.

“Pardon?” I acted.

“Vren here told everything to me.” Papa looked at me angrily. “You cut all your ties with him or else, Chantylle...”

My mouth fell slightly open to talk but I dared not to utter any word.
