💕Will hardened heart falls in love again?💕
I rolled from one side of the bed to another as I rubbed my eyes tiredly.
I quickly made for the alarm clock and switched it off.
I yanked the duvet off my body and sprang up from the bed.
My eyes went straight to the wall clock beside my huge bed.
I walked into the bathroom….
I have to be out of here in the next one hour.
I washed my face thoroughly.
I applied some toothpaste on my toothbrush.
Standing in front of the standing mirror, I brushed my teeth.
As soon as I finished brushing, I walked into the bathtub 🛀.
I took a warm shower…. It was 6:00am already.
I walked back into my room with a towel tied around my chest with a towel tied on my head.
I gradually massaged my body with the body cream.
My clothes were already hanged on the wardrobe.
I took the dress out of the wardrobe as I put them on in front of the dressing mirror.
I was done dressing…
I applied some perfume and put on my bracelet and wrist watch.
Just then, my eyes caught with a picture on the dressing table.
Tears welled down my cheeks.
I sniffed as I wiped off my tears.
I picked up the picture and burst into tears again.
“I hate you James! I hate you so much James” I wailed bitterly as I threw the picture on the ground.
The glass broke into pieces.
That man on that picture was my worst mistake on earth.
That wedding gown I wore in that freaking picture was the worst dress I ever wore.
I curse you James….
I curse the day I met you……
I curse our wedding day!
I picked up my handkerchief and mopped my eyes with it.
“Susan! Susan!!” I called as the young girl rushed into my room
“Good morning ma’am!” She greeted quickly and I nodded.
“Please clear this up!” I pointed at the shattered mirror and she nodded
I quickly picked up my handbag and walked out of the room.
I walked downstairs still sniffing.
“Good morning ma’am! Breakfast is served” That was the chef’s voice.
I turned around and forced a smile at her.
“Sorry I won’t be having breakfast… Am on diet” I lied.
“But ma’am you’ve been on diet since last week…. It’s bad to starve yourself” She complained
I blinked hard to stop myself from crying.
Thoughts of James and his betrayal filled my mind.
“I’ll get something to eat at the office besides am running late dear” I said calmly as she nodded with a frown.
I walked out of the duplex.
“You are fine now Christine! You’re OK” I said to myself as I walked to the garage.
I hopped into my Range Rover and started the engine.
🕒 6:30am 🕒
The security man quickly fling the gate open and I speeded off the compound.
I kept trying hard to get my mind off the whole thing but I couldn’t.
It has been two years already but the wound remained so fresh.
Sorry I forgot to introduce myself….
My name is Christine Cruz Dantes…..
Oh d--n! Please just remove the Dante’s from my name.
We already annulled our marriage.
That cheat broke my tender heart into pieces 💔
Though I still have our wedding ring close to my pillow.
I loved him so much…..
I trusted and believe him….
But….. infact this will be story for another day.
Well am the only daughter of a billionaire.
I guess that’s why men only came to me for my money.
Since am the only heiress.
Oops! Am right here already….
I pulled over in front of the skyscraper and got down.
I walked straight into my office.
And every other greetings was responded with a nod.
I slammed the door behind and sat heavily on my chair.
There it is again…. I spotted the picture again on my office table.
I screamed crazily as I pushed the picture.
There was a loud crashing sound everywhere as I wailed bitterly.
Dani my best friend rushed into my office.
“Best are you OK?” Dani asked anxiously
“Daniella?” I cried as I hugged her tightly……
To be continued….
I really feel for Christine……
