You might be wondering who I really am, you probably know me by Eri or Ric. Well its obvious that my name is Eric, for formalities sake I'm Eric Ashworth, son of Hidden Spring's president, yes I'm wealthy and no Seth is not my brother but rather my cousin.
I'm a proud person, I'm very much proud of myself as you can see. I'm smart, I get all the girls that I want, I'm fearless and I don't let anyone control me. I do believe that I have all the right to do whatever I want since I have the face, the money and the power. Pardon me if I'm such an ass with my words, I just dont understand why I should be happy with everything that I have. You see this table? It might look like a normal family, but believe me its nothing close to being normal. You'll soon find out why.
Anyhow, let the introduction begin. This guy to my right is Uncle David, he is Seth's dad you; in front of me is Seth, the man in his right is William, he is my father and the woman to his right is well my evil mother Scarlet.
This environment of mine is nothing close to a family but rather like a house full of strangers, I barely know my parents and Uncle David? we're cool, he reaches me what life is all about but sometimes he... never mind. The only person I know in this house is Seth, he is more like a brother to me, he's the one who makes me feel that I do belong here, he somehow makes the loneliness disappear...
But the sad part is, we are inlove with the same girl. I dont have anything against him yet, I know that I'll always have that edge over him. I still love Seth though. The first and will be the last girl I will love is this silly girl, Keira Stone. The moment I saw her in Fairy Folk Park I knew she was the one, I grabbed the moment. I know I was just a kid, but I guess love is ageless, love is love after all, the definition of people is just based on how they feel love.
Meeting her was fate indeed, I went to the park because I hate the house but when I saw her smile, all the negativity I felt disappeared. The whole day itself was so indescribable, but I know for sure that it was a day full of laughter and smiles. And that's how I knew that she was the one made for me. Every moment that we spent together that day, I don't want to miss anything, I don't want to regret anything in the end.
What I can't really forget is the fact that she was afraid to try the slide, right then and there I knew that I have to help her and make her understand what life is really is.
I can't let the opportunity pass, I had to tell her what I learned from my Uncle David.
"You will not understand true happiness unless you felt sadness and pain"
I'm so glad that she was encouraged with my words that she did tried to slide. In the end she told me that the fear and pain after the slide was worth it because she enjoyed it.
I left the park immediately, I didn't have the chance to say goodbye. But that night, I just cannot stand that I'll be leaving her hanging. I somewhat used my power as the son of the president to know where she lives.
I came to her house as fast as I could, luckily she was outside. I gave her a hug that instant. I really didn't want to let her go, but I had to. That is why I choose not to let her go anymore, she'll be mine. I may be gone now but I'll get her back.
"I would love to see your pretty long locks when you finally become my bride, will you marry me when we grow up?" I asked
It was an instant, I'm so thrilled to know that she feels the same towards me.
With the promise I gave, it should be properly sealed. I may still be a kid, but I know for sure that what I'm doing is right for the both of us.
After sealing the promise, I had to leave. I stay for long there is chance that I will not be able to leave her for now. I know I have to face this pain so that in the end all the happiness I'll receive will be so worth it. The next day, I had to say goodbye to Seth. I mean he is the only person in the house who really cares about me and oh Uncle David too. But he was not around, I'm sure that he didn't know anything about this, my parents knew that if Uncle would know about this, he wouldn't let me go. Probably wondering where I'm going? I was sent to go to Military Boarding School, they we're grooming me to be the next in line for the presidency, I had to choice but to follow. I don't like their plans for me though, at that moment I can't do anything but to obey.
Spending my childhood in the Military made me realize that I don't have to obey them, I have my own life to control. I will not let anyone control me, that is what I learned from boarding school. Ironic isn't it?
I left boarding during my teenage years.
When I came back, my parents were furious especially my mother but had to ignore them. There are times that we have to teach our parents not to meddle in our lives. And to show them that I will no longer follow them, I changed my appearance. I look a bit troublesome but yeah its doesn't really matter. I love this look, I'm comfortable with it.
Moving on, I realized that I have to see Keira again. Yes, I had to use my power again as the son of the president to see her and success I located her instantly. But I didn't see this coming, I thought I'll be the one to surprise her but I was the one surprised. She didn't recognize me at all! I tried looking at her, tried to look through her. But she didn't feel anything. She didn't even bother to look at me! All I can see is disgust in her face. No trace of care and love.
But I still had to try, I once again used all the means to know everything she's doing so that wherever she goes she'll be able to see me and probably realize that I was her Eri, I am her Eri. But it was the last straw, I saw running away from me when I woke up after my nap under the tree, thats when I realized that with my troublesome looks, she has zero interest in me, I looked like the exact opposite of what she likes. She won't she through me because my looks was a barrier to her. It hurts, but I have to endure.
Then it hit me, I had to put her love for me to the test but the sad end there is that I don't know how long I can keep up with not telling her the truth, I just believe that this will be all worth it. I stopped stalking her for a few days, I invested my time on playing the piano. This will help me think of what I'll be doing in the following days.
I even thought about asking her to prom but Seth had told me that she will ask her best friend out which is Keira. So that plan was so out.
I came back to my original plan, I'll be stalking her once again. After the prom, I over heard Seth, he was confessing to his love for Keira. I can't bear to hear what her answer will be, I guess I'll just have to give her up?
I went to the school playground to think it, it really hurts. I love Keira and Seth is like a brother to me. I can't stop them from being happy, I'm better of out of the picture. Then suddenly, I heard footsteps from behind. I was so sad that I think I was hallucinating and thinking that it was Keira and so I said.
"How long will you be standing there?"
She didn't move
"Sit now" I ordered
For some reason, I did obey him.
I was surprised that it was really her. That gave me hope, and so my plan will push through. she sat beside me, finally.
"I've been seeing you around lately Keira" I said
"How did you know my name?"
"I heard it during one of the school's fieldtrip, it was at the Bistro I think" I replied
"So you are?" she asked
"Call me Ric"
"Its getting pretty late, we both have curfews, I'll go on ahead"
"No, wait don't go just yet" I commanded
"I don't want to get caught by the cops!" shed runaway
"What a coward, running away again!" I shouted
I really can't afford to see her go and runaway from me again, it hurts. I know that I have to run after her, this time my plan was not only to stalk her but also i want her to become crazy over me, yes I want her to think about me all the time. "Leave me alone!" she shouted
"I can't!" I had to lock her down! I love her!
"Why are you doing this to me?!" she shouted
"Be quiet, the cops might hear us" I whispered
"How can I be quiet?!"
"If you dont shut up, I'll kiss you" I argued
She stopped talking, how mean of her. So she hates me that much?
"Why?" she the asked
"I want you to hate me!" I said, I had to say this
"I do hate you already" she squealed, wow she really hates to death!
"I know" I smirked, I had to act or else everything will be ruined.
"Before you go, I have to tell you one thing" I whispered
"I want you to be filled with thoughts about of me"
"It will be thoughts of hatred of course!"
"That's how I like it. See you soon" I smiled slyly
She runaway again, I don't want to see her back anymore. I have to move fast. I don't want to lose the only girl I loved. I told to myself that i had to endure all the pain, I had to understand why she reacts this way. I have to continue on, I need to have her back. I didn't stalk her the next day after prom since its graduation day, I need to rest too...
I need to plan things out from now on, I should make sure I surprise her with every move I make, that way I'll never be out of her mind. Presently, I'm at her house calling her.
"C'mon down Keira" I ordered She was speechless. Then she reacted furiously. haha! I'm really enjoying this!
To be continued...
So it was you- Chapter 2
