Haunted by my Past Mistake….Episode 48
Abigail shifted her gaze from his. “Yes, I mean it.”
“What now makes my cousin different from me?” David wasn’t letting go easily.
She smiled on hearing that question.
“Everything about him is different. The way he talks, walks, eats. The manner he treats me is so much romantic.”
David frowned deeply. “You are just fantasizing about those things. He might be kind to you now, for a reason. Who know he might change after having you on his bed?”
“What is your problem? Why do you want to make James a devil to me?”
“‘Cause we men are all the same. We have different tactics of getting the woman we want. James is just lying and I’m telling you the truth.”
“You’re a big liar. James would never do that.”
“He’s a womanizer. Different woman has slept with him. Why do you think he’ll change for you?”
James glanced at his gold chain wrist watch for the fifth time. A frown creased his forehead. Where the hell is Abigail? His eyes searched the entire ball room as he half heartedly listened to what the brothers were saying. His mind was all about Abigail. He really wanted to be with her. They were the couple celebrating and had to be together. Where did she disappear to? Had the restroom swallowed her or what? Its been over twenty minutes. He prayed she hadn’t fainted again. She should be fine. He inhaled deeply.
Samuel noticed his anxiety.
“Hey, James what’s wrong?”
“Have you been listening to my story?” Joshua inquired, he saw the lines formed on James’s face.
James sighed. “Honestly, I’ve not and I’m not fine. Abigail, she’s taking too long.”
The twins laughed.
“She’s gonna come soon. Are you scared she’s gonna disappear?”
James stared at Joshua with eyes full of pity, as if he was going to cry.
“Come on, she’ll be back soon. Don’t cry.”
It was James’s turn to laugh.
“Thank you so much? It was nice meeting you two.” He briefly shook hands with them. “I’ve got to find her. I should have followed her.”
“All the best.”
James nodded and left them.
“What’s wrong with him?”
“He’s in love with our Abigail.”
Joshua smiled. “I’m glad she found someone like him. They deserve each other.”
“Come, let’s go chat with dad and mum, I’ve missed them.”
“So have I.” Samuel led the way.
James walked briskly towards the ladies restroom. He just needs to find Abigail. He had never been in one before, but he would just because of his Abigail. He’s missing her and wants to see her, to gaze into those lovely eyes. That stubborn woman, where could she have disappeared to? He finally got to the door. As he reached out for the door knob, a voice stopped him.
“If I were you, I wouldn’t do that.”
He dropped his hand. He knew that voice.
“Victoria, what are you doing here?”
She smiled. “I should be asking you that. What were you about to do? Go into the ladies room?”
James scratched his head.
That, she admired.
“I mean in my house. This party, what are you doing here?”
She rolled her eyes and bit her lips seductively. “I came with an invited guest. I’m his date. David.”
“David? My cousin?” What was David doing with Victoria-his ex. Does he even know that?
“Whoa!” Victoria exclaimed. “He’s your cousin?” She was glad.
“Yes.” He had to focus on his aim. “I’m searching for my fiancee, did you by any chance see her? Is she in there?” he pointed at the door of the restroom.
Victoria chuckled. “I did, I think I saw her come out with someone.”
“Do you know where she is?”
She smiled and licked her lips. “I do. Can take you there if you want.”
Seconds later, they were up at the balcony. From there, its possible to see the entire vicinity. Victoria paced, as if searching for something. Her eyes lit up in joy as she saw what she had been looking for.
“What are we doing up here?” James was confused and disturbed at the same time.
“You’ve got to see this.”
James walked up to Victoria and saw what she asked him to see.
She hid her smile. “That’s the virgin you left me for. Look what she’s doing.”
