πŸ’  Chapter 33 πŸ’ 

Brianna’s POV

I stared at Ryan strangely as he ate the food. What suddenly happened to him? He said he wasn’t going to eat right?

I just went to him because I felt like eating with someone. I’ve been eating dinner alone for so long and it makes me miss Helen so much.

He acts like a jerk everytime. After forcefully making me leave my home, he’s treating me the way he wants. I’m always lonely while he goes around FΕ―Γ§Ζ™ing everything in skirt.

“Why aren’t you eating?” he asked staring at me

“Why does it matter to you? I’ve never seen a mean jerk like you in all my years of existence. I hate you!” I screamed with tears streaming down my face

“Brianna…..” he stuttered and slowly stood up

“Can’t you just let me return home now? Keeping me here is of no advantage to you. I miss my friend. I miss going out on weekends. I miss my carefree life. Why are you doing this to me?” I asked and cried harder

“I’ll let you see your friend often from now on. I’ll let you have fun on weekends so please stop crying” he said in a gentle voice that almost made me forget how angry I am with him

“Why can’t you let me go?” I asked softly

He stared at me for a few seconds and finally opened his mouth to say something but instead of talking, he dropped his spoon and went back upstairs.

Why did I even get so emotional? I should have known he doesn’t have a heart. Whether I’m sad or happy means absolutely nothing to a jerk like him.

I cleared the plates and returned to my room for a rest. He didn’t even let me eat the food I cooked for myself, I don’t know for how long I will be able to put up with him.

But he said something at the dining table. He said I could see Helen from now on and he also said I could have fun on weekends. Did he really mean it or he just said it because I was in tears?

Why would he even care about my tears? He’s someone that doesn’t have a heart. Anyway, I don’t care about him anymore.

Since Oscar loves me, I will go into a relationship with him and see if I will be able to develop feelings for him overtime.

Ryan’s POV

I placed my hand over my fast beating heart as I tried so hard to calm myself down. What is wrong with me?

First, I suddenly went to join her at the table because she was sad and now, my heart ached when I saw tears in her eyes.

Just why is this happening to me? I even said she could go out from now on, without thinking. Could it be that I’ve fallen in love with her?

Why am I even thinking about something so absurd? I must have been stressing myself lately and I guess I haven’t really been with ladies like I used to.

I just need to win Mia over and make her my girlfriend. That way, I will be able to get rid of this pitiful feeling I’m having towards Brianna.

*Next morning*

After getting ready for work, I was about descending the stairs but then I suddenly got a call.

“Boss, I’ve gotten Mia’s contact like you requested” Justin said from the other end

“Good job! Send it to me right away” I said and ended the call

This is exactly what I needed. Once I have Mia’s contact with me, I won’t even have any minute to spend with Brianna and there would be no chance for those feelings I have towards her.

As I descended the stairs, the first person I saw was Brianna. She had her phone on her ear and was speaking to someone.

Even though I was almost close to her, I couldn’t hear what she was saying. Her lips seemed to be moving but I was completely mesmerized by her that I stopped in my tracks.

The blinds were opened and the ray of light shone on her face making her look like an angel. It’s like her beauty was sparked by the sun and for a moment, I thought I was seeing someone different.

Why is Brianna becoming beautiful to me with each passing day?

“Good morning” she greeted with a smile when she noticed me and that was when I snapped out of my thoughts and walked fully into the sitting room.

“I was waiting for you to come downstairs so I could inform you that I was going out. I will be at the office on time so don’t worry” she said and turned around to pick her bag

“Are you going to see Oscar again?” I asked without thinking

“Again? I don’t understand what you mean by that. Did you ask someone to follow me?” she scoffed

“N…no! He just happened to pass by that restaurant and saw you, then he called me and told me about it” I lied

“I hope that’s what really happened. I’m going to see Oscar, is something wrong with that?” she asked

“Don’t go to see him” I said dumbly

“Are you kidding me? Why shouldn’t I go to see him? In case you’ve forgotten, I’ll remind you. You told me last night that I could see Helen from now on and also have fun on weekends. Just think if Oscar as Helen okay? I won’t spend much time with him anyway” she said and left hurriedly

I gently sat down on a couch and rubbed my palm over my face. I don’t know why I’m feeling this way because she’s seeing a guy.

We’re not in any kind of relationship and I have no right to stop her from seeing whoever she wants to see.

Keeping her here is also not right but a part of me just doesn’t want to let go of her. I want her to be with me forever, if possible.

I stood up from the couch and locked the door after which I got into my car. Justin already sent Mia’s contact to me so I just have to call her.

“Hello! Who is on the line?” her beautiful voice asked

“Ryan Santiago” I said with a smirk

“Ryan? Wow! That was faster than expected. Are you so into me that you would even go to the extent of finding my contact?” she asked with a scoff

“Yes. I’m into you and you know that now so can we go out?” I asked

“I already told you that I’m not interested in going out with a stranger” she said

“I’m not a stranger. I’m Ryan Santiago and everyone knows me so how am I a stranger to you?” I asked with a soft sigh

“I’m not everyone so I don’t know you. Can you please stop disturbing me?” she said

She seems to be playing hard to get and I like ladies who act tough. I always make blissful memories with them.

“Fine, can we start with been friends then? I’m Ryan Santiago” I introduced myself

“I’m Mia Zachary” she said

“It’s nice to meet you Mia. Can we have dinner or lunch whenever you’re less busy?” I asked

“Let’s have dinner tomorrow. I’ll text you the address and time” she said

“Alright, I’ll be expecting your text” I said and ended the call

It’s only a matter of time before she screams my name in bed and I will definitely remind her of today when that day finally comes.
