Chapter 28

By : Kebby NG Media Services


“I see you are out here alone” Stephanie said as she came to stand beside me

“I thought she would be here with you grovelling at your feet, wanting you to love her back”she added when I didn’t reply

“I made it clear to her and Emily is some one who has pride, she won’t beg me” I answered cooly

“So are you trying to say that I don’t have pride, that my begging you to love me back a year ago is some thing that is degrading”She asked

“I didn’t mean it that way Stephanie”

“Well am glad you didnt and am more glad that I got over you, just like Emily,i had fallen for you a year ago but you never returned my love”

“I made it clear to you Stephanie that I………”

“That you don’t want me falling in love with you, I know and I agreed to do it back then, I thought that having sex and getting your money will be all I need from you but I found myself wanting more, I found myself longing to have more of you but you being you shove my feelings away”She said

“What happened with Emily a while ago is sort of a pay back for you breaking my heart”

“How will that be a pay back when I can’t be hurt by it, remember I don’t love Emily”I said

“That is what you try to tell yourself but I know that it’s a lie”She said and I looked at her

“Have seen the way you look at Emily, It’s with the eyes of a man In love, when she had been in David arms, you got all furious though you tried to hide it, I could sense it in you, when you hugged me at the garden,I knew that it was because you knew that Emily was watching us”

“You wanted to get her jealous and you succeeded, you not only got her jealous but you got her to know her true feelings for you”She added

“I don’t feel a thing for Emily”I said quickly

“You do feel some thing, you might not have felt it for me and the other mistresses you’ve had but to Emily, you do,Stop trying to hide it “she said

I thought about what she said and I knew that she was right.

I feel the same way for Emily, that is why I was feeling hurt about having to send her away.

I can’t believe that am in love with Emily, I have always thought that with what happened years ago I will be immune to love but it turns out that am not as immune as i thought.

“You love Emily but am sure that you will still push her away because of this crazy notion you have about not being worthy of love”she said sacastically

“It’s not a crazy notion, it’s what I feel Stephanie and I mean it”I said again

“Fine then but it’s not fair that you make us pay for what ever happened to you in the past” she added

“You were the one who wanted to pay me back for rejecting you in the past and now you are on Emily side, just what are you scheming?”I asked

“Nothing, I just feel bad having to lie to Emily that am still your lover, if I had known that you inviting me here was to pretend to be your lover then I would never have come”she said

“I had invited you here because you are the best interior designer”

“Yes I know you invited me here to work for you professionally but you also had an ulterior motive, you knew all along that Emily was falling for you and not wanting that you brought me here and used me as your shield,am I right with my theory?”She asked

“Yes you are,I didn’t want her falling for me and I also did not want her to leave so when the interior problem came up, I decided to call you here and also to use you as a shield, I was sure that if Emily sees that am still the playboy she thinks me of being,Whatever thing she is feeling for me would leave”I added

“But it turns out that it didn’t, instead her love for you grew stronger, shouldn’t you reconsider, you love her too”She said

“No I don’t love her! I can’t ever love some one, I don’t deserve to love and be love by some one, so the best thing for her is to leave”I said and the next thing she did was to hit my head

“What was that for?”

“If you had known that you would be like this towards her, you should have never made that deal with her!”She said

“I know that and I regret it, I also regret telling you about the deal ” I said

“Well you knew you had to tell me or I wouldn’t have agreed to pretend to be your mistress”She said

“So what are you going to do now? If you send Emily away your parents will know that every thing is a lie and the pressure of Isabel will start again”She added

“I haven’t thought of that yet”I said

“Then start thinking, if Emily leaves then you will have no option than to marry Isabel and I really prefer Emily for you than Isabel, think about that when you go to sleep, good night Cade”She said as she left the field.



I woke up the next day, still feeling sad about what happened last night.

Will he really send me away? I thought as I got out of the bed to stand by the balcony.

Would this be the last time I see all of this? Would it be the last time I wake up in this room.

Yes I won’t deny that when I had first arrived, I hated the room and the man that sleeps in it but now have come to think of it as my own and knowing that I will be leaving it hurts a lot.

The resort too, I will have to leave with out finishing it, with out getting to see the people working in it, with out getting to help the poor people in need of work.

The door opened and Cade walked in, still dressed in what he was wearing last night.

“Good morning”I greeted

“Start packing, I already booked a flight for you”He said as he went to his ward robe to get his clothe

“Do you really want me to leave that bad”I asked

“The more you stay,the more it will be painful for you?”He said

“Why would it be painful for me?”I asked

“Because Stephanie is here and as you know, she is my mistress and i intend to stay with her as long as I like, will your heart be able to take that?”he asked

“Yes, it will! I know for a fact that you don’t Stephanie, you only see her as a sex tool and I know that if I stay I can convince you to love me or if you don’t want that, I can keep up with the deal as long as it takes the resort to get back on its feet”I said

“I don’t want you here Emily, you have done the one thing I asked you not to do and it will be hard and uncomfortable to keep up with the deal so start packing”he said and turned to leave and quickly I hugged him from behind

“Don’t send me away Cade, I will control my feeling and i won’t get in your way with any of your mistresses, all I ask of is that you let me stay by your side”I begged

He stood still for a while and I knew that he was thinking about my proposal but then he pulled my hand away

“I don’t want you near me, neither do I want or need your love, I don’t deserve it Emily, so now for the last time, pack your things and get ready to leave”He said and went into the bath room.

Not wanting to cry again, I left the room and went straight to the kitchen.

The maids were all there and they were looking at some album.

On seeing me they closed the book but I told them to continue what they were doing.

I drank the water I needed and I went to them asking about Tracy

“She has been sent into town and won’t be back until next week”One of them answered.

I was about to leave when some thing in the album caught my eye.

I took the album from them and stared at it properly. I can’t believe that am seeing them here?.
