(She hates him)

My fingers clutched tightly onto his shirt as I sort to maintain the tightness and closeness I felt at every corner of my skin.
His kiss was so perfect and passionate.
It was quite brain spinning that I let go off everything and let him be in control.
I still couldn’t understand how I was able to hold my breath and kiss him this long.
Rissa definitely needs help. He broke the kiss slowly and pushed backwards a bit.
I could feel the warmth from his lips dancing around mine.
His taste is undescribable!
I tried not to think about Lucas and the fact that I just cheated on him with Mykel.
I don’t think I’m the best of girlfriends there is.
Without saying a word to each other, Mykel and I snuggled up on the backseat just gazing at the glittering stars above the roof of the car.
“It’s almost midnight, inspector. Not even a single trail or clue that’ll lead me right to my daughter. What do you think am paying you for?!!” I hooted at the top police chief around.
“We were able to track down your daughter’s phone number but we couldn’t get anything…its more like her phone was smashed or probably destroyed” The man swallowed hard feeling embarrassed already.
“Is that all you can do???” I chided irritably.
“No, ma’am. We’ll figure out a way to contact her abductors. I apologize for the delay” He answered with a bow before leaving.
Luckily, Edward is on his way home.
This officers will surely act effectively on seeing him.
And as for Mykel, I have no idea if he’s okay. The ten minutes break I gave him has turned into three hours.
I’m sure he’s alright. That kid is full of surprises and I have a feeling he’ll be a good brother to Rissa as time goes on.
The air was starting to suffocate me. I’m getting so uncomfortable that I could just scream so hard.
I should have gone with him but he insisted that he goes alone.
Oh! Mykel!…I hope nothing happens to you or I’ll never be able to forgive myself.
Gabriel keeps calling me and asking why I took Mr Frosh’s phone number but I can’t tell him anything since I was asked not to.
I left the bed and approached the window. Living alone sucks! That I’ll tell you.
I’m also thinking about taking Gabriel back. He has apologized and also sent flowers to my apartment every morning. It wouldn’t hurt to give him a second chance, would it?..
The sound’s of chirping birds emerged from outside the car accompanied with harsh rays of sunlight.
We made it! Thank goodness.
I leaned over from the seat and rubbed my heavy eyes. I think the only person that enjoyed last night’s sleep was Rissa since she laid on me.
Speaking of Rissa…
She sat at the front seat next to the driver’s staring out the window.
I got up and moved over to the driver’s spot. I noticed a red mark below her left ear and I presumed it was a mosquito bite.
“I couldn’t sleep” She muttered and released a short yawn that made her look more like a baby.
“I know. You’re used to sleeping on a comfortable extra large bed” I remarked and she nodded.
“What do we do now?” She asked with a crumpled scared face.
I smiled and inserted the key into the ignition and started the car.
“I thought the car ran out of fuel. What happened?!” She asked alarmed.
“I’m sorry, Rissa. I lied. There’s enough fuel in the car. I just needed you to calm down before meeting your mom. She’d beat herself up if she learned you were almost raped” I stated revising the car out from where I had parked the previous night.
A lot of questions built up on her face as we hit the lonely road.
“I still can’t believe you, Mykel. A mosquito bit me!!” She rasped landing a punch on my arm.
Ouch! She gets tougher by the day.
“God! I already apologized and besides, the mosquito bit made you look even cuter” I simpered and she sneered.
“Most times, I wonder why you do the things you do!” She muttered fixing her seatbelt.
“I don’t even know…”.
The next few minutes were of total silence as I thought about my ordeal with Mr Frosh.
“Hey…” I whispered and she looked up at me.
Seeing her lips reminded me about the kiss – I couldn’t control myself and I took more than what she offered. Well, I’m glad she didn’t screw it up.
“What???” She suddenly asked snapping me out from the crazy thought.
“Listen, I know it’s important that you tell your mom everything that happened last night. The kidnap, the…” I paused and glanced at her blank face.
“I just want you to keep it a secret…just between the both of us. No one else should know about this”.
“What?! Why?? Don’t you want those people captured??? Or are you part of them??!!” She queried irascibly.
“No, that’s not it! I just don’t want you to get in the middle of a crime scene. Think about it, the whole news talking about you being kidnapped and raped. Then, having it being recorded somewhere as a victim. We can just make up a story but not this….not the real thing” I explained calmly.
She sighed and looked out the window again.
“Fine, I won’t tell her anything” She concluded folding her hands.
We had almost gotten to the mansion and I stopped the car.
“Selena will come get this later” I mumbled removing the key.
“What?…why did we stop?” Rissa asked removing her seatbelt.
“We’ll have to walk. We are almost there” I answered and left the car. She followed suit.
I dropped the car key next to one of the tires so Selena would be able to get it when she comes.
“My dad’s home” Rissa said and I arched my brows.
“How did you know?” I asked making sure there was not a scratch on the car.
“Because his car is right behind us!” She yelled and hid behind the car.
I turned around and caught a glimpse of range rovers speeding pass us.
Gosh! You’ve got to be kidding me…
