          Chapter 42&43


Hattie kept running with Alex chasing after her. ‘Damn! Why can’t he just leave me??’ She thought.

‘Give him a chance.’ Her subconscious said to her but she shook her head.

Nah… She just can’t. She looked back to see that he wasn’t chasing after her again. She paused as she started P@ŋting.

She lazily sat on the ground, still breathing heavily. “Water.” She mumbled, closing her eyes as she touched her chest, her heart was beating fast.

“Here.” She heard a deep masculine voice said making her open her eyes quickly.

She gasped immediately she saw his face. He was squatting before her. “Ahhh!!!!” She screamed as she tried to stand but it seemed like she was stuck there.

Alex smirked at her.

“No where to run to??”

“Wh…hat do you want??” She asked instead, trying her best not to stutter.

“You Hattie.” He replied, staring directly into her eyes.

She looked away. “And I don’t want you Alex. Please let me be, I’m tired of running around…”

“I didn’t force you to run…”

“Sure you did… Look, my feelings for you two years ago were just mere infatuation… Which I’ve gotten rid of, you should do that as well coz I don’t want to have anything to do with you so please stop chasing after me, it’s creepy.” She told him.

“I know I messed up back then, I’m sorry my ego was just too big… Please give me a chance to prove how much I love you, please.” Hattie felt her head growing big, it could explode anytime.

The fact that her crush was now begging her made her feel on top of the world.

“Please, Hattie… I love you so much.” She feigned a huff.

‘Now it’s my turn to play hard to get.’ She smirked inwardly.

Grabbing the bottled water from his hand, she stood on her feet.


“You’re not my type numbskull.” She told him before walking away, with a naughty smile on her face.

“Really?? I’m not her type??” Alex asked himself, ruffling his hair.


“For how long will you sulk?? She doesn’t love you, you can’t force her to… You just have to move on.” Kelvin said to Chase who has refused to stop sulking over his rejection.

He sat on his bed crying all day.

“I loved her so much, why can’t she just love me back??” Chase asked, ruffling his hair frustration.

“That’s because you two are not meant to be. Can’t you see the crystal clear handwriting. C’mon dude… I don’t wanna see you like this when I come back.” Kelvin said picking up his book.

“Take care of yourself.” He said to Chase who didn’t reply him.

He walked to the door, immediately he opened it, he saw Jasmine about to knock.

“Hi Kelvin.” Jas greeted.

“Hey??” Kelvin giving her a questioning look and she chuckled.

“I’m here to see Chase.” She replied understanding that look.

“Oh. The d!ckhead that has refused to stop sulking…”

“I heard that dummy.” Chase said loudly.

“I wasn’t saying it behind you!” He retorted and Jas chuckled.

“Can I go?” She asked.

“Sure. I’m about leaving.” He said, making way for her to go in and he walked out as well, shutting the door behind him.

“Chase.” She called walking to him, then she sat beside him on his bed.

She felt sorry for him, but she couldn’t force Renëe to accept him.

“Why can’t she just accept me??” He questioned rhetorically and Jas had to sigh.

“Chase.” She called softly, pity could be felt in her voice.

“Don’t try to pacify me… I guess I deser…” She didn’t let him finish his words before crashing her lips on his.

Chase eyes dilated in surprise as she K!SSed him, he didn’t reciprocate. She broke the K!SS after a while.

“I-I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to… I just…” Lost with words, she stood up and ran out of his room with Chase staring, obviously still surprised.

She didn’t mean to K!SS him, she just couldn’t hold back her feelings… She has loved him right from their highschool days but he only saw Renëe, not wanting to be the one to ruin things for them, she had to keep her feelings in check…

But today she couldn’t help it. She sighed sadly.

“We did it!!!” Daisy squealed. They’ve uploaded the video and Mira has been proven to be the one behind the r*pe incident.

“Yeah bae. We taught that bítch a lesson… I can’t wait to see her crying face.” Ursula said, making a horrible face expression and they laughed.

“I always knew Mira was a bítch, but not to this extend.” Valerie said.

“She’s a vixen…”

“Bítch!!!” They heard the vixen’s voice.

“Speak of the devil and she shows up.” Hattie muttered, Mira could be seen walking to her in rage.

“Lemme guess… She has seen the video and couldn’t take in the shame.” Ursula laughed.

“How dare you??” She made to pull Daisy by the hair but both Hattie and Ursula pulled her back.

“I’ve been meaning to teach a lesson, guess told is my lucky day.” Ursula smirked and they both pounced, beating the hell outta her.

She kept whimpering and wincing. “Could you guys please wait for me to get myself a popcorn and juice… Coz this scene is better watched with it.” Valerie said and Daisy nudged at her, laughing.

“You should rather save her.” Daisy suggested and she huffed.

“My foot… Yeah Ursula, scratch that face very well. Teach the bítch a much painful lesson.” She gingered

They beat her to unconsciousness, before leaving her there.

“Let’s break up…”

“Finally.” He aired out.

“What do you say??” She asked as if she didn’t hear him.

“Finally… I’ve been waiting for you to say this since.”

“I don’t get…”

“Come off it, I knew all what was going on all along but I decided to play dumb… You’ve fallen for VD right??” He asked and she bit her lower lip, looking down.

“You don’t need to be guilty coz I’m also guilty… So we’re a draw.” She quickly looked up at him.

“What do you mean?” She asked.

“You’re in love with someone else??” He shrugged and she squealed, she couldn’t deny the fact that she was super excited now…

She thought she was gonna leave him broken and it made her scared to break up with him, but she’s glad that he’s in love with someone else. Phew!

She suddenly remembered Ursula and her face fell. “Who’s the lucky girl??” She asked and he smirked.

“C’mon tell me.” She nudged.

“Her name starts with letter ‘D’ and ends with letter ‘Y’.” Her eyes widened.

“You’re not serious, are you??”

“She’s standing before me…”

“Fůçƙ you Kelvin!!!” He laughed.

“Stop this please!! Be truthful.” She pouted and he groaned.

“Okay… She’s Daisy-”

“-Let me finish dummy.” He snickered as she glared at him.

“She’s Daisy’s friend.” She furrowed her brows.

“Which Daisy are you talking about??” He rolled his eyes tiredly.

“Wait meee?? Which of them??” She asked excitedly, hoping it will be Ursula.

“I’ll leave you to guess her.”

“Ursula??” He shrugged and she screamed.


“Excuse me, are you by chance her??” He asked.

“Wow!! She loves you dummy.”

“I doubt that.” He muttered, he didn’t know how it happened but he fell for her. He loved her craziness that most times he pretended to come see Daisy but the real reason why he came was to bicker with Ursula.

He felt bad tho, he thought he was gonna hurt Daisy, but when he found that she was in love with Vlad… He became at peace, waiting for her to break the relationship.

Vlad was about leaving his room when the door flung, he raised his head thinking it was Daisy.

But it was Isla.

“What the heck are you doing here??” He asked coldly.

“C’mon Vlad… I came to check on you, gat a problem with that??”

“As my what?? My mom or my sis??…” He questioned.

“Vlad! When will you stop treating coldly??” He scoffed.

“Suit yourself.” He made to walk away but she grabbed him back, K!SSing him cràzily.

Before he could push her, the door flew open. His eyes caught Daisy Daisy standing at the door, obviously shock by what she saw.

He swiftly pushed Isla from him. “It’s not what you think.” He said almost immediately, staring at Daisy who was still in shock.

“C’mon Vlad, for how long will you keep it from her??” She asked dryly.

“Look here Daisy, Vlad is mine and mine alone. I met him way back before you… I’ve been keeping my cool because I don’t wanna ruin our friendship but now I’m telling you right here to forget about him, he was mine, he’s still mine and he will still be mine. Got it!!”

“Jolie!!” Vlad yelled and she smiled excitedly.

“Wow… You called my real name, that means I didn’t lose you after all.” He ignored her, walking to Daisy who moved back.

She felt a heavy lump in her throat as she stared at him. She was late… Very late. She didn’t know when the tears rolled her eyes and she quickly turned around and left the room in a hurry.

Months later…

Mira got expelled few months ago and things hasn’t been going fine for Vlad and Daisy. After that incident, she felt heartbroken and has distanced herself from Vlad, giving Isla the chance to hover all over him.

He has tried to explain things to her but she wasn’t giving him a listening ear, her mind was already made up.

She already knew what she wanted to know, Isla was Jolie… His girlfriend from the past who isn’t ready to let go… She knew of it, she doesn’t wanna come in between them… She admits the fact that she was late.

“Daisy…” Vlad called.

“Let’s go girls.” Daisy said and walked away with Ursula and Hattie leaving Vlad standing there looking sad.

Suddenly, he felt a hand wrapped around his waist. “Vlad.”

“Get away.” He released her hands around his waist and pushed her away.

“Stay away from me.” He warned sternly before walking away.

Isla sighed sadly, just then the pains came in again. “Ouch…” She winced, clutching her stomach.

“Just let me spend my last days with you, happily.” She muttered as tears rolled down her eyes.

“Ouch.” She cried, she made her way to her room.

“Ouch.” She winced again, she was already bleeding.

“I have to see the doctor.”

“Why don’t you wanna hear him out, he clearly loves.” Hattie said to her.

“He doesn’t. I think Isla is the one for him.” She said sadly.

“Really! Isla is his past don’t you get it.” Ursula said.

“His past which has refused to let go of him. Listen I have my life to live and my book to face… Fighting for love is the last thing on my mind.” She told them hotly.


“Let’s change topic.” She said uninterested.

They sighed.


They doctor came in shortly to see her seated on the chair.

“Isla.” He called, walking over to take his seat.

“Good day Doc.” She greeted sharply.

“Same to you. Hope is well?” He asked, noticing her not so fine look.

“No Doc. The pains, it’s back… This time it’s excruciating than before…” She said looking at him hopefully, he can do something.

“Oh. I’m sorry about that… But I warned about it, I advised you against it but you were adamant… I’m sorry but there’s nothing I can do.” He said to her.

“Please Doc… I don’t wanna d!e yet… You can do something… Anything… I just don’t wanna d!e please… If it requires going for a surgery then I’m ready… Please.” The doctor shook his head.

“No Isla, you can’t go for a surgery, you may not survive…”

“Thanks for using the word ‘may’, it simply means I could, I could not… Please Doc… do something.” She pleaded desperately and the doctor sighed.

“Okay… Return whenever you’re ready.” He told her.

“I’m ready right now.”


Few hours later…

Isla laid on the bed in the operation room, her eyes glued to the ceiling as the nurses fixed everything for the surgery. She was dressed in a surgical garment.

The doctor walked in, “Are you sure you’re ready for this??” He asked standing beside her.

“Yeah. Just get done with this… If I survive fine, if I don’t survive it’s also fine… At least I fought to live.” She said, she already left a text for Vlad in case she doesn’t survive.

And also to her mom.

“Okay.” The doctor said.


“Ready.” She replied and the doctor injected her a syringe making her unconscious.

He started the surgery almost immediately.
