💠 Chapter 43 💠

Ryan’s POV

I stood still, unable to understand what just happened. I confessed my feelings to Brianna but she didn’t say a word and just walked away.

The almighty Ryan confessed his feelings for her and she just left without saying anything? What exactly does she want?

I’m trying so hard to make her feel better after she joined the gang but she’s just complicating matters.

I even confessed my feelings for her even though it was very hard for me but she’s just taking me for granted. I guess I’ll try to ignore her from now on.

*Next day*

Brianna and I got into my car and I drove us to work. We didn’t even say hi to each other and there was absolute silence until we arrived at the company.

She brought my coffee as usual and dropped it after which she left still without saying anything.

Was it a bad idea to tell her how I feel? Should I have just kept my feelings bolted up?

After work ended, we went home and as usual, there was utter silence between us until we got home.

She started walking up the stairs but I pulled her to my self abruptly, making her hit my hard chest.

“What are you doing?” she asked trying to wriggle out of my hold but I was too strong for her

“Why won’t you talk to me? I confessed my feelings to you and you’ve been ignoring me since then. Shouldn’t you give me an answer at least? I asked

“I should give you an answer? What kind of answer do I want to give to a monster like you? You love me? Do you think I will jump for joy like other ladies do if you tell me you love me?

I’m not cheap like those ladies and I’ll never allow myself to be a victim of someone like you? Do you even know what love is? How dare you say you love me?” she screamed

“B.. Brianna” I stuttered and let go of her hand

Her sudden outburst completely threw me off balance. So this was the reason why she didn’t say a word yesterday? How can she even think I’m playing with her feelings? Is that what she thinks of me?

“My feelings for you is sincere, why won’t you believe me? I know I’m a playboy but believe me when I say I’m in love with you. I’m matured enough to know that I’m not supposed to joke with something like that” I tried to convince her

“Well, I don’t feel the same way so you can keep your feelings to yourself. You ruined my life within just a short period of time and you claim to love me now? I don’t think you even know what you’re saying. Just ignore me from now on. Staying in the same house doesn’t mean we’re friends. I hate you passionately and I’ll continue to hate you for the rest of my life” she concluded and went upstairs

Why does it hurt so much to hear it from her? I know she will definitely hate me because of what I did to her but I didn’t expect I’ll feel this way. I guess this is what they call love.

Donna’s POV

I was watching TV in my mansion when I heard the doorbell. After checking the camera and confirmed it was Mia, I opened the door with the remote control.

“Baby girl, how are you doing?” she asked and sat beside me

“How do you think I’m doing? I’m not doing fine of course” I mumbled with an eyeroll

“Why? What’s wrong with my girlfriend?” she asked

“You haven’t made Ryan pay yet. I want him to experience pain like I did” I pouted

“That’s going to take a little while. I don’t know what’s wrong with him lately. He’s always looking lost and he doesn’t even talk about making out anymore. I have to be very careful at a time like this so the plan won’t backfire” she explained

“Why would Ryan be looking lost? It doesn’t make any sense. He’s one of the richest men around and he has everything at his beck and call. He doesn’t have any family to take care of and the only person he’s in a relationship with, is you. How can he be down then?” I asked confusedly

“Money can’t solve all your problems. There are certain things you won’t be able to do in life even if you spend trillions. I’m also baffled by his strange behavior and that’s why I’m taking things slow. I will make him fall at my feet very soon so don’t worry” she assured with a smile

“I trust you and I hope you don’t take much time. I want to get over this quickly” I said

Brianna’s POV

I shut the door behind me and heaved deep sighs of relief. I didn’t know I will be able to say that but I’m glad I did.

Ever since I came to this house, Ryan has broken my stronghold and I can’t even feel myself anymore. I really wish I was with Helen. We would have done so many fun things and had the best time of our lives.

I’m going to train harder now and make sure I become strong like I used to be. I will make sure no one is able to get through to me no matter what happens.

That reminds me! Ryan’s underboss looks familiar to me. I’ve been thinking about where I know him from but nothing seems to be coming forth and I don’t even know his name.

I have a feeling that we had a past together but I can’t remember clearly and I hope it’s not something that will cause problems for me later on.

*Next day*

The air around Ryan and I was tenses and so thick that I could almost feel it. None of us even greeted each other or acknowledged each other’s presence.

We got into Ryan’s car and the drive to the company started. Ryan kept staring at me all through but I pretended not to see him as I faced the other side of the car.

When he parked the car at the garage, I rushed to open the door but he beat me to it by locking all the doors.

“What are you doing?” I asked turning to face him for the first time that morning

“What does it look like? I want to apologize for everything I’ve done to you do far. Can you at least forgive me and let’s move on? I will try to make up for all my mistake” he said

“And how will you make up for your mistake? Is there a way for me to leave the mafia group right now? Can you turn back the hands of time and make sure we don’t cross paths with each other until the end of this world?” I asked

“Brianna, I…” he stuttered

“Just open this goddamn door for me and let me leave. From this moment onward, don’t try to talk to me unless it’s business related and don’t get on my nerves too. Just stay in your own lane if you don’t want to see the other side of me” I threatened and finally left the car
