💜(Her stubborn neighbor)💜
‘Why don’t we have some cake??’..Joe quickly eased the tension as he brought out the pink frosting cheesecake..
‘Aww thank you Joe’..Maddie blushed hard and blew the candles on the cake..
There was only one thing she wished for..
She wished for Jack to be happy and to finally get over the death of his wife and daughter so they could move on to a better life..
Night time came and Jack grumbled angrily as he waited for Maddie to return home..
Few minutes till the long hand hit twelve,Maddie walked into the house with a lot of wrapped boxes and that should’ve given him a sign of some sort but his anger blinded him….
‘Ohh I was over at—
‘Joe’s restaurant?! Yeah if you don’t want to be with me you can just tell me if you want Maddie I’m tired of you making endless excuses and coming home late!!’..He screamed and her mouth dropped in shock..
‘What is wrong with you!?!’..
‘You Maddie!! You’re what’s wrong!! Ever since Joe moved in we haven’t even spent quality time together and it’s like I don’t even matter to you anymore!’..He replied..
‘Ohh so you think I’m the problem with you?!! You’re the problem with yourself Jack and you only care about yourself!! You think Kiki’s death didn’t also affect me?? It affected me as hell Jack and I had to hold the courage not to cry when a kid said you killed your own daughter!!’..She fired back and he rolled his eyes..
‘I am not the problem here Maddie!!’..
‘No you are the problem Jack!! And I am so done trying to tolerate your attitude!! And for your information I wasn’t with Joe because I wanted to!! He called me from work and when I got there everyone screamed SURPRISE!!!’..
‘Yes Jack!! Today is my birthday but why do you care?!!’..She cried out and walked away..
Today was her birthday?,Jack thought as he sat down on the kitchen stool thinking about how bad he messed up..
He really messed up real bad and hearing Maddie cry from the room only just made it worse..
‘You know I always told her you were bad news Jack’.. Daniel snickered as he walked in..
’Watch yourself Daniel I’m not in the mood to fight with you’.. Jack grunted..
‘Well you better behave Jack or else I’ll tell my sister about Sniper who isn’t your partner but the guy that sells you intravenous drugs’..Daniel whispered and walked away leaving a bemused expression on Jack’s face…
