{When love decides
To take over}


(Pet me help you)

?Episode 31?

Bryce’s POV:

She finally step aside and I sighed in relief.

This woman is so stubborn.

Since last night I haven’t been myself.

She was drunk!

On top of that, she confessed to me though it was during her drunken state of mind but.

What the mind think is what it says during a drunken state.

Her living room was a mess.

Is this why she doesn’t want to let me in?
Or something else?

“You house is beautiful.” I said and she snorted.

She walk pass me and sat down on the couch.

I didn’t see her so anywhere.

“Where is Christian?” I asked her. She panicked and quickly stood up from the couch.

“Chris.” She mumbled and rushed to the corridor.

Did something happened to her son?

I followed her closely, she opened a door and walked in then immediately sighed in relief.

Christian was playing games with her phone on his bed.

He look up to see the intruders and smiled.

“Good morning mom,” He greets. “Mr King Good morning.”

“Why are you with my phone?” Penny asked him.

“I….I saw you sleeping and you look tired so I took your phone to keep me busy.” He replied.

I took a liking in the small boy the first day I saw him.

He was so outspoken.

“Okay, drop the phone and go brush your teeth. I’ll make us breakfast.” Penny said and turned around to leave.

“Why are you even here?” She asked when I followed her to the kitchen.

“Is that a question? Seriously? You were drunk Penny, you called me when you were drunk. Anybody in their right senses will come early in the morning to check up on you.” I replied her.

After hearing how her words broke when she thought I was Alex.

I just couldn’t fathom what their history was all about and I don’t wanna be nosy by having someone investigate it for me.

She sounded broken.

I really want to help her.

She stood in front of the kitchen island and I wrapped my hands around her w@ist.

She flinched and struggle to break our hug.

“What are you doing Bryce, let me go ASAP.” She gritted out.

“Just for a little while, let me hug you.” I said calmly. I closed my eyes and sniffed in her scent.


“Did you know what you told me when you called last night?” I asked her.

Of course she doesn’t know.

She stiffen and started struggling again.

“You confessed your feelings for me, you told me you want me. You said it should have been us together.” I said and she gasped.

“I….I never meant that, I was drunk!” She said coldly.

“Drunk? But you said it with so much passion.” I added. She rubbed her fingers against her temple and sighed.

“That will never be possible Bryce, You have a wife. I…..I can’t do this.” She said, I pressed myself closer to her and rest my head on her shoulder.

“Penny……I’m not saying that you should do anything. All I want to do is help you out of the misery you’re in.” I said and inhaled sharply.

“I want to help you Penny, let me help you.” I told her.

She was quiet, she was having doubts.

And to be honest, I’m not going to push it.

I kssed her hair and stepped back.

“Call me later, Zen must be worried.” I said and walk out of the kitchen.

If only she will let me help her, I just want to help!
