We arrived at his family house an hour later, Khalid turned to me”Remember all what I’ve told you”
I scoffed thinking about it.
I still can’t believe I’m going to do this, I have no choice.. Kayla’s life is online here. His had told me everything about his mom, what will make her love me.
“You have to act like you didn’t know a marriage was going on, act like you’re hurt by this”
I blinked”You’re engaged? You want to end this way? Why are you doing this?”I asked in shock.
This is so unbelievable. How will they look at me?
I gulped when he glared at me and kept talking”She loves it when people call her Rianne so take note, we met at a coffee shop”
I bursted out laughing”Coffee shop? That sounds so cliche,no one will believe you. How about at the park? You were driving by and you saw me”
“Whatever, you just do you have to do and don’t mess this up”
End of flashback!
I nodded”Yeah I guess”
I was surprised when he alighted from the car and kissed me. It was brief but it made my heart skip. “They’re watching us, smile”
I did and we both made our way to the front door.
🍀 Khalid 🍀
Mom’s face was flushed with anger, she stared at us as we came closer looking like she’s going to strangle me the moment I get within reach. Hm, that’s what you get for not listening to me.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my mom very much but there extent of things that can’t be overlooked.
I glanced at June to see her fidgeting. I don’t blame her.. this isn’t easy for her. I don’t feel bad though, she’ll get over it soon.
“Hello Mom” I greeted coolly, ignoring the guest. They all gazed at me then to June in horror.
“W.. what’s going on here? Who is she?” The girl I’m supposed to marry asked. I don’t even know her name.
Mom smiled apologetically at them”Excuse me for minute” then she grabbed my hand”Come with me”
I took June’s hand wanting her to come along but mom glared at me”Alone!!!”
I kissed June on her cheek before following her. Why do I feel like I know what she wants to talk about?
Oh God this is bad, really bad.
How am I going to cope with all of them staring at me like a lunatic?
An elderly man that look like Khalid cleared his throat”Who are you dear?”
I blinked, don’t tell me he’s Khalid’s father cause even their voice sounds alike. Holy shitoly!! I’m speaking with his dad!
An.. and I’m about to lie, you can do this June, you can do this. I cleared my throat”Um .. hello Mr Black, I’m June, Khalid’s girlfriend” I said with a smile.
A pretty lady about my age walked to my front”What do you mean girlfriend, I’m his fiance!”
I gasp”What? He never told me he had a ‘fi.. an.. ce”
At the back of my heart, I was patting myself on the back. Go girl, you’re doing great. I wish Kayla was here to watch me. She’d be hailing me right now.
The b*tch gasp”Did you just ‘fi.. an.. ce’ me?”
I raise my brows”I don’t know, why don’t you ask your dumb head”
She gritted her teeth”You slut!! I’ll show you not to mess with me”
💕 Khalid 💕
“What do you think you’re doing Khalid!! Do you know the embarrassment you’ve just cost me!!” She yelled the moment we stepped into her room.
I shrug”I don’t know what you’re on about mom, I told you I wasn’t interested because I was in love with someone else, with June”
My subconscious mind scoffed, in love? Is that all you could come up with?
I pushed it aside and focused on mom.
“In.. in what? You’re telling me that now? The Kiran family are the most respected family here in town, you need to marry that girl!!”
I growled”No mom! I just told you I’m in love with someone and you’re asking me to dump her?”
“Well yes, if that’s what you have to do then do it”
I shook my head, I expected this. I shouldn’t be surprised but I am.
“Don’t you get it? I said no! I’m not going to marry her and that’s final!!”
She opened her mouth to speak”Son…”
Suddenly we heard a loud bang, followed by screams. My eyes widened, oh no.. hope it’s not what I’m thinking?
Mom had the same look on her face cause we turned and ran out to the living room.
I was speechless at what I saw. June grabbed my fiance’s hair and pulled it hard. Then bent the girls hand in a way I know will hurt.
I’ll leave this one for you guys.
Is it good that June is fighting?
