Chapter 47

Ryan’s POV

I sat at the dining table and stared at the dishes Brianna served. I don’t really feel like eating right now but I guess I have no choice. If she wakes up tomorrow and finds out I didn’t eat the food, she will be really sad.

I started eating but after a while, I thought about her. She was just putting the food on the table when I got in which means she probably hasn’t eaten. She’s kind of angry with me now so she won’t want to eat with me. I guess I will have to take the food to her room.

I knocked on the door with the tray in my hand and waited for her response but I got none.

“Go away! I don’t want to talk to you!” she screamed after I knocked for the second time

“I know you don’t want to talk to me and it’s okay. I’m only here to drop something for you and I’ll leave once you take it” I said

“You don’t need to drop anything for me and if you really want to, you can just drop it outside there” she said

“For once Brianna! Can you treat me like a human instead of a monster? I know I’ve hurt you deeply but just this once please” I said sadly

After few minutes of silence, she opened the door and stared at me with an expression I can’t explain. She slowly collected the tray of food and mumbled a thanks before shutting the door.

Thankfully, she accepted the food and I know she will eat if she’s hungry. Now I can go to my room and rest for the day.

*Next morning*

The beautiful aroma that filled the air was the one that woke me up. This aroma can’t possibly be coming from my kitchen right? I mean, who would be cooking so early in the morning?

I wore my slippers and walked down the stairs to check what was going on. Surprisingly, I met Brianna in the kitchen and I wasn’t able to hide the shocked look on my face. She stopped cooking breakfast a long time ago so seeing her like this is really surprising.

“Brianna?” I called, startling her

“Good morning” she greeted shyly

“Morning! What are you doing?” I asked even though it was obvious

“I’m cooking breakfast of course” she mumbled

“But why? You stopped cooking it before so why are you resuming again? I asked confusedly

“Should I just stop then” she asked

“No, I didn’t mean it like that. I will go and take my bath now” I said and hurried back upstairs
Her behaviors are creeping me out and if she continues like this, I don’t know for how long I will last.

After getting dressed, I went back downstairs and she was already placing the dishes on the table. When she was done, she left without saying a word while I stared at the food, not knowing what to do.

Brianna’s POV

I hurriedly shut the door behind me as soon as I got into my room and heaved a sigh of relief. Being in the same place with Ryan for a few minutes almost drove me nut.

After what he said last night, I suddenly started feeling guilty and that’s why I decided to start making breakfast again.

He might have made some mistakes in the past but the fact that he’s trying hard to correct his mistake now isn’t something I should ignore. More importantly, he wants to change because of me so I should accept it and see it as a good thing. The only problem I’m having now is that I don’t know how to approach him so I guess I have to wait until he brings it up again.

*Two weeks later*

It’s been two weeks since I’ve been waiting for Ryan to bring up the discussion with me but it looks like that won’t be happening anytime soon. Instead of just waiting endlessly, I’ve decided to make a move myself.

I texted Ryan after lunch and asked us to meet at a restaurant by 7pm. I’m going to go home as soon as I close from work and quickly change my dress before meeting him.

The time I’ve been waiting for is finally here. I wore a short gown that hugged tightly to my body and I applied light make up. I was looking different in a good way and I really liked it.

I’ve decided to confess my feelings to Ryan today and agree to be his girlfriend. How will it feel to be the girlfriend of a mafia boss and billionaire?

With a huge smile on my face, I descended the stairs and walked out of the mansion to the road where I boarded a cab that would take me to the restaurant.

Mia’s POV

It’s been roughly two weeks since Ryan and I got intimate and I think it’s time to make my move. The plan was to pin a fake pregnancy on him and I guess I can at least pull that off now.

Since I’m not just any model, it will be hard to ignore the fact that I’m pregnant. He will slowly loose himself and his business and Donna will watch him go through ten times the pain he made her go through.

I went to the hospital to get a fake pregnancy result from a doctor. It was actually a piece of cake considering how influential and wealthy I am.

I made sure to look really worn out throughout the rest of the day so that Ryan would think I’m in a lot of pain because of the pregnancy. And considering the fact that he has no child right now, it will be hard for him to suggest an abortion.

When it was exactly 10 minutes past 5pm, I put a call through to him and asked him to meet me in a restaurant. He told me he also had something to take care of at that same restaurant so I should make it quick.

He has something to take care of? If only he knows what is coming for him, he will cancel every other thing he plans to do. Anyway, that’s his business to take care of. All I have to do is pass my message across and take my leave.

He asked me to be there by 6 but I’m going to be an hour late. He can’t order me around like I’m one of those $lüts he had a one night stand with.

After putting finishing touches to my dressing, I left my mansion at exactly 6:50pm.
