Chapter 8.

Chapter 8. Iñigos facial expression was unreadable. The blow of her declaration stunned him. An immediate mixed feeling of rage, pain and jealousy overwhelmed him that led him speechless. He was shaking his head, couldn't accept what he'd just heard and clenched his fist on his side so tightly.

"No. I don't believe you. You don't love him. You still feel something for me Chloe, admit it. Your lips may say something but your eyes never lie." He blurted at her.
"Feel? All i feel for you is hatred Iñigo. You did hurt me so much. How can I ever love you again?"

He reached for her face, but she evaded his hand, moving a step away from him. "Don't touch me."
"Why not? Are you afraid that if I touched you, it would melt the walls you have built between us? I want to be with you forever Chloe, I love you! I will give you my heart, my body and my soul." "Stop...stop it... please." She pleaded and went towards the shore. She needed time to be alone, she was so upset that she wanted to cry. She wanted to think and analyze the whole situation. She couldn't grasp what really happened and wanted so badly to understand her father, Eros and Iñigo. But know she couldn't help feeling so deceived by them. They were just the the same, so protective, possessive and controlling. She hated them so badly.
She was walking at the shore when she noticed a young boy and girl playing in the sand. The boy was building a sandcastle and the girl was just looking at him. The girl tried to het the boy's attention, but he was so engrossed with what he was doing. The girl looked so bored that she put sand on his head. The boy got so mad that he chased her until he caught mer. She shrilled with laughter and giggled when the boy tickled her side. Chloe sighed. They reminded her of when she and Iñigo were young. The chasing and laughter they'd shared. They were so happy and so much in love. She always thought of Iñigo as her prince charming, her knight in shining armour, her defender and protector. And now, she realized, that everything was a lie. He decieved her... he couldn't defent their love. He should have told her the truth about her father's threats. He didn't trust her.

"Chloe." She heard Iñigo behind her. "We need to talk."
She ignored him and continued to walk away.

"Please, listen to me. I'm in pain too. For five years, I kept my distance away from you. I did what your father wanted me to do, to give you time to grow up and finish your studies."
She finally faced him and poked a finger on his chest. "Then you should have told me the truth! Instead of hurting me, and breaking up with me on my sixteenth birthday. You gave me the sweetest birthday gift of all!"
"I'm so sorry. Eros gave me the note that night and your father gave me a threatening look every time we met that evening. I didn't have a choise at that time. I made a wrong decision and I regrett it. Please... I'm begging you for your forgivness. Give me a chance to make it right, I love you so much." "I can forgive you Iñigo, but I can't just turn back the clock as if nothing happened. We are grown-ups now, and our lives have changed. I have Martin now, and I love him. So please, just let me go." That evening, they went back to the hotel quietly. Iñigo was full of rage and pain. He was brooding and in deep thoughts. He could not accept that he lost Chloe and that she loved someone else. He blamed her father, Eros and himself for her change of heart. Chloe was also silent, so conscious of Iñigos sullen behaivour. She glanced at him every now and then, and thinking of something to say to ease the tension between them. He was driving so fast, making her nervous at the same time. She was relieved when they finally arrived at the hotel.
"Thank you for the dinner." Was all she said when she went out of his car.

Iñigo just looked at her and nodded. Then he drove off without saying a word.
--------

That evening, Iñigo didn't return to the hotel. Chloe was getting worried where he was and what happened to him. Why he wasn't coming back to the hotel, she wondered. She must have hurt him so badly.

She hated Iñigo for being so stubborn. He refused to understand that she had already moved on. She had Martin now, who was so loving, caring and very understanding. She believed that he was the perfect man for her.
--------

The following morning she asked Luis where Iñigo was, but he didn't know.

"He left the hotel again last night, he didn't come back."
"Oh, maybe he went to his girlfriend in L.A and rented a hotel room there." Luis shrugged.

Chloe couldn't contain she sudden jealously she felt. "He has a girlfriend in L.A?"

"Yes, Engr. Valdez mentioned that he is dating a famous model-actress. Besides, he is a very handsome and rich man. Many girls would volunteer to be his girlfriend."
She sighed and the jealousy she felt was eating her nerves. She hated herself for wasting too much time thinking about him. "Well, probably your are right, he's with his girlfriend now."

Damn Iñigo, declaring his undying love for me and all the time ha had a girlfriend. No wonder he went to to L.A. last night
Instead of thinking of Iñigo, she focused on her work. Her order from New York supplier of beds, upholsteries, furniture, lampshades, curtains and linens intended for the model Luxury Suites arrived. The became so busy furnishing the suites that she forgot the time. During the evening, Chloe was so agitated. The was still no sign of Iñigo. She couldn't stop worrying about him, where are he and who is he with. She regretted not to be able to ask Engr. Valdez about Iñigos welfare.

Tomorrow, I'm going to ask him where Iñigo is
Then she remembered what Luis said, maybe he was with his girlfriend. The nerve of that jerk, he was probably meeting alot of bimbos in L.A now.

Oh God, I hate him.
But on second thought, what if he had an accident, what if he was in the middle of the road, hurt and in need of help, what if he was lying inside his wrecked car, dead. She sat down on the balcony, what if something bad happened to him.

Oh... I wouldn't ever forgive myself.
-------

Chloe woke up feeling so tired. She slept for two hours only because of too much worrying where Iñigo was. She looked at the alarm clock on the bedside table, it was six in the morning then she immediately took off her nighties and went to the bathroom to take a bath. She decided to go to Eng. Valdez office to ask him where Iñigo was.
She was having a cup of coffe in the kitchen when the penthouse main door opened. She heard Iñigo whistling and went up to his room. A sudden gush of relief engulfed her.

Thank god, he's fine She thought.
But he seemed so happy, whistling. Damn him! Relief turned to anger and jealously. Luis was probably right, he had a good time with his girlfriend in L.A. She really hated herself for worrying too much about him.

Like speed of lightning, she poured her cup of coffe in the sink and left the penthouse.
-------

Wow, we accomplished so much in just two days. We finished furnishing three model rooms." Rodrick said proudly.

"Yup, really great." Butch answered him.
"And I'm so tired. I want to sleep early tonight." Chloe butted in.

"You really need a lot of sleep boss, look at your face in the mirror, you have shadows under your eyes." Butch suggested.
"Maybe you need to transfer to one of our model rooms, so you will have some privacy. I'm sure Mr. Monteiro wouldn't mind." Rodrick raised one of his eyebrows.

Chloe didn't dare to ask Rodrick about what he meant with his statement. She was sure there where some rumors about her past relationship with inigo. But she didn't mind, it was no secret anyway.
It was already five o clock and she was getting ready to go to the penthouse to have a early dinner then sleep when Luis arrived in their office.

"Excuse me Miss Petrakis, a man is asking for you in the lobby."
"A man?"

"Yes. Tall, handsome, blond hair with an Australian accent."

Oh my god, Martin is here!
