Hello guys! I finally had the time to finish the captions! Sorry it took quite a while though. Anyhow, I hope you guys will enjoy this chapter!
Credits again to the creator of my CCS! More power to you guys! Hearts!
Credits again to the creator of my CCS! More power to you guys! Hearts! WHAT THE HECK IS HE DOING HERE?! "C'mon down Keira" he ordered
My body automatically followed what he said. There is something about him that I really can't lay my finger on. You wanna know what's really weird? Coming all the way down here at my house is just like a game to him! I can see the enjoyment in his face. It annoys all the more! Plus, he exactly knows where I live! What a stalker! Ugh! "Why are you here?" I said flatly.
"I wanna play" he answered slyly.
"I don't have time to play games especially if its with you!" I looked away.
His presence irritates me a lot. To add it all up, he wants to play? This guy is nuts! "We are gonna play, whether you like it or not" he commanded
I was speechless, one thing's for sure I had to obey him. "Now that I have your full attention, our little game is called Let's Pretend" he explained
"I think I know where this is going!" I blurted
"I'm glad you already have an idea but let me explain to you further, so listen up okay?"
I just nodded and looked at him. "So Keira, in our little game you will pretend that you like me"
"WHAT?!" I snapped, what the hell is wrong with him? I can't do that!
"Its my game and my rules, you will obey. So Miss Stone, let me finish. You will pretend that you like me and I will pretend that I love you" he smirked
"You're just unbelievable!" I said, but what's really unbelievable is that he is capable of loving anyone.
"Anyway, this game will not be just for today it will go on until I'm satisfied" he ignored me
"That is very unreasonable, I don't have time for this! I'm gonna be helping my mother financially, I don't want to do this!"
"If that is the case, then you should probably just work for me, you'll get paid every time you play our little game, oh you can name your price." he negotiated just like an experienced businessman, come to think of it he might be rich considering he offers to pay me.
"Okay let's do this! What will we do now?" I agreed, If I'm gonna do this then I'm doing this for money and for my mother!
He just smiled,
And then next thing I knew I was at the Salon! That crazy guy, he told me that I should get a costume and I should wear it every time! What a waste!
He's spending too much money for this game, If I had that kind of money I know I'll end up saving it for my mother dearest, I don't want her to work anymore. But since its not my money, well it wouldn't be bad if I'll humor what he wants, and besides its no turning back for me now, I already agreed with his terms and conditions. Might as well just go with the flow.
I can see the stylist approaching. "Good Day Madame Stone, Sir Ric choose me to be your Stylist, My name is Stefan"
"Hello there Stefan, you don't have to call me Madame, just call me Keira" I smiled
"Very well, I'm just following orders. Let us proceed with the process shall we?
I nodded because I too was following orders. The makeover is finally done and now here I am, I can't believe that I'm staring at myself, its like a whole different person. I never really let my hair loose except when I'm taking a bath.
I miss my Eri all of sudden, I wanna see him and show him my long locks! I'm sure that he will be happy when he sees me like this and then right then and there he will propose to me once again and then will get married that same day.
It saddens me though because all that right now is impossible. Oh wait, I can see the devil approaching I better be ready. "Miss Stone, you look stunning with your hair down, you look ready to be my bride."
"What are you saying?" I asked, he thinks very odd I just don't get him!
"We are playing remember?" he said with his hello-captain-obvious-face.
"Oh right, I'm sorry let's repeat it again" Ugh, I hate being fake especially to him! I hate his guts! Argh!!!
"Very well" "Darling, your pretty long locks makes you all the more the most beautiful bride in the world, I just can't wait for the day that you carry my surname" he smiled, why is he such a good actor? And why does his line reminds me of what Eri told me before? I hate it! Now I'll be thinking of him every time I look at my hair! But I have to continue on with this, for my mother!
"Sweetie, I can't wait for that day as well" I replied
"That's it? Your acting skills suck, I'm not satisfied. You are hopeless, c'mon let's eat at the Bistro"
I just hate him! I'm putting so much effort and then he'll just say that I suck?! What does he know about acting and love anyway! UGH! He then dragged me to the Bistro, I sure hope Mom won't see me, Its so embarrassing to be seen with this guy.
"So Keira are you enjoying your food?" he asked
"Yes of course! It my Mom's cooking you know" I ate a spoonful of salad
"I know, that is why I love it here"
"So you eat here a lot?" I asked without even thinking and then he just laughed.
"What's so funny?" I added
"I never thought that you'll actually be interested with my life"
He does have a point, but really I'm just plain curious. He know so much about me and yet I don't even any single detail about him. "Well I just though that you know so much about me and its just unfair that I don't know anything about you" What am I saying to him? UGH!
"Okay to be fair with you, I do eat here often"
Why did I feel guilty all of a sudden? After my question, I couldn't bother asking another one, I'll just feel more guilty. But there's just so many question popping in my head, doesn't he have any family? doesn't he have any friends? Why is he alone? It was still a moment of silence, I couldn't bring myself to talk. I drowned in his deep golden eyes, his eyes are very mesmerizing, it reminds of Eri's eyes, they have the same eye color and both carry the loneliness deep within them. I can't stop wondering why this guy is lonely. "Don't stare at me like that" he smirked
"Oh I'm sorry, I was just thinking."
"I thought my eyes drowned you already" he joked
"I almost did drowned in them" I looked away
"It's getting pretty late, I'll take you home." he changed the topic
I agreed "You know seriously, you really look beautiful with your hair down." he said
"Don't say that"
"Why? do I remind you of someone?"
"No" my answer was a flat no, I had to lie but he does remind me of Eri a lot.
"Oh before you go, I want you to have this" he took a gift out
"What's this for?"
"Just a token of my gratitude, I had fun playing with you today Miss Stone"
"You don't have to give this to me, Its my job remember?" giving the gift back to him
"If you don't accept that gift I'll lower your pay" he ordered
"Geez, okay okay I accept!" I took the gift from his hands, I hate his Dictator tone! UGH.
"Dont open it in front of me you silly girl!"
"Open it when you are home!"
"Okay! just stop being bossy"
"I have the right because I am you boss" He laughed
He took me home via a cab. The journey home was not that long and what's surprising was the fact that he was quiet the whole time. He just looks so peaceful and contented, and really beautiful! It was so not him! Hey wait, I think that he is beautiful? What am I saying? UGH! Hanging out with him today was actually fun, yes I occasionally get annoyed but I don't know! I just... Argh! He is filling my head up again! I better go to my room! Maybe Ric is going through something that's why he's being to mean to me. Should I help him out? Yeah, that can be a solution! If I did help him out with his problem or something then maybe he will stop bothering him. After helping me out, I can focus on Eri again. I will look for Eri, I can't just wait here doing nothing.
Okay, so its decided I will formally accept the job/game that Ric is offering me, I better send him an email. To: Ric
Subject: Your game terms
Hello Ric the dictator, I'm emailing you because I am formally accepting your game and I am declining your job offer. You don't have to pay me whenever we play your little game, because I just really can't accept the large sum of money from me. I will get a part-time job though, I'll probably just go back to the bookstore or so. Let's just schedule your little game, probably around after my job. It is the best offer I can give to you. I do hope that you consider this.
I hit send and oh he is online already so that means that he doesn't live that far from me. He replied already, here goes nothing. From: Ric
Subject: RE: Your game terms
Why hello Miss Stone, I guess I've been running in your mind the whole time, please continue to do so..
Oh right, I accept your compromise regarding our game, on one condition though, I will have to fetch you everyday after your shift. Its actually part of the game, we're couples in our game so there is nothing wrong with me getting you after your shift. Sorry, I forgot that you will have to obey me, scratch the condition, what I told you is an order. See you soon my dear.
UGGGH!!! THAT RIC IS REALLY GETTING INTO MY NERVES!!!! I hate him! I hate him!! I'm shutting this thing off! And I actually thought that he will be nice again, what a devil! I sauntered to the comfort room, I wanna wash my face so that my irritation would somehow go away. I love the cold water on my skin.
Wow, I still can't believe that I looked like this. I look like my mom, speaking of mom I haven't seen her yet, I hate it when she works overtime. Don't worry Mom, you don't have to work soon, I'll be the one who will take care of you. I promise. I just couldn't stop thinking about Ric again, he was right he was filling my head. He is such a mystery, a part of me wants to know him so much but a huge chunk of me says "What the hell I care!" I'm going crazy, I wanna about his family and his friends. I wanna know why he is alone. I wanna know him.. Heck I'm contradicting myself! Maybe I should try stalking him too? But I know it would be hard because he will be with me 24/7, plus he stalking me its weird that I'll be stalking my own stalker, he probably knows that I'm following him. Thinking about that creeps me out!
I just can ask him questions regarding his life! I can't allow that! Its like I'm giving him what he wants! This is so frustrating. My beloved Eri, I'm so sorry if there is another man filling my head up. Once I'm done playing his little game, I'll look for you. I promise.
I have to satisfy him, I have to be good at this pretend game so that I can finish this fast.
Oh I almost forgot about the gift that he gave me.
Its a necklace. Why? Oh my god! I've been thinking about him the whole night! Its already morning! I didn't realize that I haven't sleep! I'm not yet even sleepy! Oh god, his effects are bad to my health.
But why did he give me a necklace? Why me? Off all the girl here in Hidden Springs, why did he choose to stalk me? Why is he investing so much time and money on me? Why does he want me to hate him? Why does he want me to think about him? Why is he torturing me this much? WHYY????! HOLY MOTHER AND SON!
WHAT ON EARTH IS HE UP TO NOW?!
TO BE CONTINUED....
Sorry guys, I was able to get a screenie when she wore the necklace. But you can see it clearly here. I hope you had fun with this, tune in for the next chapter!
So it was you- Chapter3
