Jessica packed her hair up the way she always did as she stood facing the full-length mirror. The length of her hair always made people envy her even when the only thing she wanted was to cut the hair off. Combing it was always a burden for her and she had resorted to packing it. She rarely plaited her hair due to the long waits she was always subjected to, so she had stuck with retouching and setting which was less expensive and also time saving.
It has been two days after the exhausting bogus wedding and she hadn’t really left the beach house. Andy had practically restricted her to the building, saying that it would be awkward for the bride to be seen outside alone without her husband, immediately after the wedding. Jessica had asked him to go out with her then but her contract husband obviously had so many things to sort out on net and did not have the time to camouflage with her. Who wants to burdened with his boring presence anyways? Jessica snorted. If a prophet had prophesied that Jessica would be married to a jerk like Andy, she would have called him a joker but now that she faced the reality, she really could not believe that she had agreed to this marriage. But she had, rather stupidly. But even if she could turn back the hands of time, would her decision be different? Sighing, after putting on a long blue skirt and a white top, she lay on the bed, feeling the pieces of her shattered world expand all the more.
Jessica was someone who loved and loved deeply but that has proved to be a very bad thing for her. She had been jilted by three different guys who were practically sex addicts. Her mother always told her before that abominable day that she should hold on till she was married before opening her legs for any guy. Before the death of her entire family, she did not really give the advice much thought but when her family died, vanishing all of a sudden, all she wanted to do was to obey everything that her parents ever told her. The first man she had fallen in love with several years’ back, who was her first love had shattered her world by sleeping with her best friend. When she caught them in the act she almost ran mad. Trusting another guy again had been almost impossible but due to her nature, she moved on and fell for another guy. He had however been descent enough to call it quit with the excuse that he could not do without sex until marriage. The third guy had been the one that really hurt her. It had taken a long time for her to get over the trauma and even now, the remembrance almost moved her to tears, filling her with a certain level of anger.
A knock interrupted her thoughts and she stood up from the bed. She opened the door and stared at Andy. He was in a grey suit.
“Good morning sir”
Andy muttered under his breath. “Would I have to spend a lifetime explaining why I hate this ‘sir’ you use for me? It makes me feel old”
She stared at him for some seconds then swallowed. “Andrew, Andy, Drew; choose one” she responded with an official, indifferent look on her face; not smiling and not frowning.
He looked on the verge of laughter, then raised his brow. “Drew. It sounds good” He looked almost surprised.
“Good morning Drew” she responded straight-faced.
He looked at her with a frown on his face. “Do you ever smile?”
“Do you respond to greetings?” she returned.He shook his head slowly.
“Then I guess I should not bother greeting again then”
Andy realized that she took the shake of his head as the answer to the question she asked. The woman was just a pain in the neck! He thought of explaining but realized that he had wasted a lot of time already. “I am off to the office” he said.
She blanched. “This is supposed to be our honeymoon, however fake it might be.” she murmured the latter under her breath then glared at him. “What would people think when you return to work just two days after the wedding? It is not like you would be sacked if you don’t appear in a year.” It was after Jessica heard the echo of her voice that she realized that she was shouting.
“Everyone can think whatever they want to think, I am tired of sitting idle in this little cage” he declared. “At least, you did not mind what the maids would think about our sleeping arrangement, why should I mind what my employees would think?” he challenged.
“They would think that I don’t have the womanly or feminine erm… expertise to keep you for at least a week on our honeymoon. I never asked you to get maids, in fact, I advised against it. It is not my fault that you are so terribly lazy” Andy gritted his teeth as she ranted.
“You can’t go to work! How would people look at me?”
“I guess that is for you to worry about”
Jessica noticed that he was throwing her words back at her and it made her even angrier. She shook her head in dismay. “This is the worst marriage ever. No wonder you had me sign a contract to marry you, no woman in her right senses would marry such a self-centered man”
Andy’s face transformed before her eyes and she wanted to run but her stubborn nature made her stand where she was, returning his glare with equal measure. He grabbed her hand fiercely, pulling her closer as he glared straight at her. All her courage seeped out of her, leaving her with dread. “I guess that makes us birds of a feather, right? You also accepted this contract because of personal gain so think twice about crying wolf”
He dripped her arm instantly and she staggered slightly, then, he was gone before she could even blink. She leaned against the door for support, willing her racing heart to normalize.
