A Night With A Billionaire; Episode 24.
“Are you alright now?”
He says as he turns to look at me and I smile before nodding shyly and staring ahead, unable to meet his eyes.
God! I can’t believe myself. I can’t believe that I had cried like that I’m front of him and on his shoulders too, that was so embarrassing.
“You don’t have to feel shy about it…”
He chuckles and I raise my head to look at him before chuckling.
“Yeah, you don’t have to feel shy about it… I understand why you had to do what you did and I understand how much you must have been hurting.”
He says and I smile before nodding, finally raising my head to look at him.
“Why didn’t you leave when I had told you to? I thought you would have left already but you didn’t.”
I whisper and he just shrugs.
“I don’t know but I just felt like something is actually wrong with you and I was wondering what the hell you would be doing at the graveyard then I remember you telling me that it’s your parents so I thought I could be a company. Going to the graveyard of someone you live can hurt as much as it can relieve you of your pains.”
He smiles but it isn’t his usual seductive bright smile. It’s a smile that has to do with something else and I’m wondering what.
He said earlier too that he knows how it feels to lose someone that you love,I think there’s more to him than his eyes meet.
“You lost someone?”
I raise my brows at him and he stares at me before looking away from me and staring at me,nodding his head.
“Yes I did, it was bad for me too so I understand how you feel.”
“Ohh, well who was it? Your parents.”
“You really are a nosey little thing, aren’t you? You were crying minutes ago, now you want to find out about who I lost?”
He chuckles and I roll my eyes at him before looking away and staring across the street, watching as people moves by and that’s when I actually remember that I should be at school.
Oh my God! I actually forgot about school! This is such a mess up. Aunt would have been so angry and my phone. Where the hell is my phone?
“Is everything alright?”
Wally asks when I start moving around the car and I shake my head at him.
“No,my phone. I can’t find my phone.”
I mutter and he raises the seat that’s between us before passing me my phone.
I thank him before turning it on and there are lots of missed calls and messages from Everyone.
My aunt. Bryan…Kate and my other friends.
They must have been so worried. I take my eyes to the time and it’s close to evening already.
Geez, I’m so in trouble right now.
With shaky hands, I open the messages from my aunt and she sounds pretty angry.
Where the hell are you young lady? I thought you said you will be leaving for school. Your homeroom teacher has been calling me and you aren’t in school even after the test!
Dawn,do I need to file a report to the station before you actually pick my calls or reply to my texts.
You said nothing is wrong so tell me why the tell you’re making me so sick worried about you!
Dawn, call me when you see this message, I’m actually getting really worried now.
I sigh before ignoring the other texts and going straight to my contacts. so many missed calls.
With trembling fingers, I dial her number and there’s silence at the other side as I speak up.
“I’m so sorry Aunt.”
