💓Chapter One (1)💓

Subtitle: {The Admission😔}

★Ella’s Pov★

I stared at the admission letter for God knows along before tossing it on my dressing table and walking over to my bed and sprawled on it. My gaze was fixed on the blank boring ceilings.

I should be happy. If it were to be a normal person they would be very happy. They would celebrate, they will party before packing up to go to college. But my case was different. I was sad. No, I honestly don’t know what it is i’m feeling. Probably regret, sadness, guilt? I don’t know.

I dug my nails on my palm and shut my eyes close. I miss her like crazy. I want her back. if only I could turn back the hands of time. if only I was a little bit matured at that age. if only I didn’t insist on us going out there in the rain to dance. if only I didn’t insist that she gets me ice cream. if only. Maybe she would have still been here with us. With my dad. with me. And then I would be very happy to be given an admission to study in England.

I won’t have the fear of leaving my father alone. I slowly opened my eyes as realization came down on me. I was feeling guilt.

“Sweety, are you okay?” I heard my dad’s voice from the doorway.

I hurriedly sat up and wiped the tears that had stained my cheeks away and adjusted my glasses.

“dad. Do you need me to help you with something?” I asked, getting up to my feet.

My dad made his way in alongside Winnie, my dog and shut the door closed gently.

“were you crying?” He asked as he stared at my face.

I can’t let him know I was crying. I don’t want him to know anything about the admission, I can just lie to him that I didn’t pass the exam. Easy peasy, but that isn’t the problem here, the problem here is that…the letter was right there at the dressing table.

I forced a smile to my face and shook my head no. “of course not. something had entered my eyes so I was just trying to take it out.” I lied, not making any contact with his eyes. It was easy to read through my lies but that is when you know me too well.

“how can something enter your eyes with your glasses on?” He asked.

“i know right. Haha.” I laughed, realizing how stupid I was to use an obvious lie.

“Ella, you are clenching your fist again, and you only do that when you are nervous, scared or going through the trauma. Are you sure you are alright? You know you can always talk to me, right?”

I nodded my head yes. “dad, you don’t need to worry about me. I’m fine. look, i’m not clenching my fist again.” I said as I unclenched my fist and dug my hand in the pants of my back pocket.

He stood quiet for a while that I actually thought time had stopped until he pulled me into his arms and held me there for a really time.

I let go of the breath I didn’t even realize I’ve being holding and hugged him back. I love him so much. And all because of me, all because of my foolishness, he lost someone very important to him. To us.

He started patting me gently on my back. “it’s okay, dear. You can go.” What was he talking about? I was going to ask but he continued talking. “You earned it. Don’t give up on it because of me. Please go for it.”

I slowly pulled away from him and stared at him through my glasses. “what?”

He smiled and shove a strand of black hair from my face and tuck it behind my ear. “you weren’t going to tell me, were you?” Wait, does he know about the admission? “i’m talking about the admission to study in England. Were you going to tell me about it?” Oh, no. He knows. He must have seen it on the dressing table. I should have toss it under my bed instead of tossing it on the dressing table.

“dad…” My voice trailed away. I don’t even know what to say. I just clenched the pocket of my pants tightly.

“you know you can’t hide things away from me, right?”

“i tried.” I said under my breath.

“Go for it, darling.” He said like it was very easy.

I shook my head in disagreement. “no dad. I can’t leave you here all by yourself. You need me.”

“i told you to stop feeling guilty about what happened to your mom years ago.” He said calmly.

“no, I caused it, dad. If I had not insist on us going out to dance in the rain then she wouldn’t have been hit by a running car. She wouldn’t have been dead. She would have still be with us.” I said as I battled with the tears that was threatening to make its way out.

I started struggling for breath. I think i’m going to die. This asthma might be the end of me. I fell down to the tiled floor and clenched the mattress of my bed.

My dad was going insane in searching for my inhaler. Winnie was barking also searching for my inhaler.

“where is your inhaler, Ella?” Dad asked, getting frustrated already.

“i…I…” I couldn’t get the word out. My glasses had came off by itself as I kept struggling. I can’t even see clearly now that my glasses were off.

“hang in there, sweety.” Dad came closer to me and knelt down by side and pressed the inhaler into my mouth. Gradually, I regained myself. “oh, my.” Dad drew me into his arms and kissed the top of my head while Winnie crawled herself by my side.

I shut my eyes closed as the tears that I had being battling with made its way out. it won. I dug my nails on my palm as I calmed myself down. I didn’t die. I’m not dead. Thank you, mother.

★Ryder’s Pov★

“get your ass out of my bed now.” I said, coldly.

She stared at me surprisedly. She must be really surprise at my outburst. But who cares? I’m done with her, isn’t that obvious?

“what are you saying?” She asked.

I sighed getting frustrated over her stupidity. “get your fucking self out of my bed. we are done, isn’t that obvious. You needed sex and I needed one, it was all about sex. And now we’ve both gotten what we both wanted so, get out. Get lost.” I spat as i took out a stick of cigarette and fixed it on my lips. I really need this cigarette.

“are you fucking kidding me right now? Ryder, you can’t treat people like this.” She stated.

I rolled my eyes as I grabbed a lighter and lit the cigarette and drew it in before exhaling it.

“you are crazy. Who do you think you are to say that shit to me? Huh? Listen, before this cigarette finishes I want you out of here. I hate repeating myself.”

She eyed me from head to toe before getting out of the bed and snatched her clothes. She smiled. “i won’t be mad at you because of your cute face. So tell me, when can we meet again?” She winked.

“When I said, I hate repeating.” I drew in another smoke. “it is also contrary to girls. I don’t fuck girls more than once. It’s a one time thing, baby.” I exhaled the smoke and walked out of the room.

I made my way downstairs and walked over to the refrigerator and took out a bottle of whiskey and gulped from it. Smoking and drinking were like my breakfast.

“fuck you!” She said before walking out of the door.

I just rolled my eyes and took out my phone and was scrolling through it when I heard the door open and close.

“knock before coming in, Lewis.” I said still scrolling through my phone and not sparing him a glance.

“This is my house, buddy. How many times do I have to tell you that?” He made his way to me and snatched the bottle of whiskey from me and gulped it down to his lungs. “how about my love?” He asked.

I rolled my eyes and snatched the bottle from his grasp. “Sonia isn’t your girlfriend. So stop calling her that and besides, i will never approve you both. Never.”

“and why not?”

“we are both the same. Do you think I will be at ease to have my sister date you? Of course not.” I said as I set my phone on the island table. “and besides, she don’t live here.”

“yeah yeah. I know. But when will you and your dad stop being cat and mouse?”

“when I stop being this way, I guess.” I said as I shrugged my shoulder.

My phone started ringing. I quickly made my way to the table and collected my phone before answering the call.

“what?” I asked coldly to the person at the other line.

“is that how to speak to your father, Ryder?” I sighed deeply as I heard his voice.

“what do you want?”

“listen, I’ve made plans for you. You were given an admission to study at our college.” He said.

“what? but I clearly didn’t take the exam.”

“yeah, I know. But good thing, I own the college. Make sure you get prepared.”

“no. I’m not going to college, dad. I’m not. And you have no right to decide things for me.”

“i am your father!” He yelled through the other line.

“exactly you are just my father and nothing else so stop getting yourself involve in my life and affair!” I yelled right back at me.

There was a long pause before he spoke again. “if you don’t do what I ask you to do then get ready to leave my house.”

“i don’t stay with you, Edward.” I said, calling him by his first name.

“did you just call…you know what forget it. Listen, I paid for that apartment that you are staying right now. If you don’t do as I’ve said and go to college then considered yourself disowned. And I mean every word I’ve just said.” And with that he hung up.

“Arrrrgh!” I yelled and smashed the phone against the wall. I was already fuming in anger. How dare he? How dare he do things in his own way caring less about what other people thinks or feels? I hate him.

“Ryder? I think you should just go to college. Besides, it is just college. I don’t see any big deal there.” Lewis said.

I ran my fingers through my hair. “fine. I’m going to make sure he regrets ever putting me into that stupid college of his!” TBC.
