February 14, 2012.
Kimball decided to pursue his proposal towards Arabella.
He single-handedly arranged every detail except for one thing, and it was the most important part to these big event.
How he'll gonna convinced her to come with him to his place, where everything started 10 years ago?
That made him freakin out.
And his friends aren't any help too, instead they just teases him.
Also, he just learned a minute ago, that "his" girl doesn't even have a single closest friend on CRS to be his accomplice.
He got no other choice left but to man up and asked her out personally.
Fortunately, she agreed.
"What the hell, let's try that", he remembered her saying while tilting little her head.
He's so excited he can't sleep the night before.
The moment comes..
And Arabella didn't show up.
Next thing he knew, he was talking to Marga, his ex-girlfriend, over the phone and ended up to her condo unit.
He was so pissed he couldn't even force himself to kiss that seductive woman before him. What on earth is happening to him?
He apologized and invited her to go out instead and catch some fun at the bar w/c she declined.
Hence, he went home and let himself get drunk and wasted.
Arabella saw Kimball with a familiar face. The chic looks hot.
Seeing him with another woman ripped her heart out. She came here to see her friend SHIN when Kimball and that girl arrived; she hid herself and hurriedly leaved that place forgetting her original plan why she went there in the first place.
Before that, 5 hours ago..
She learnt that she's pregnant,
For the second time, to that same man who fathered her beloved son, Nathan, now, a 10-year-old sweet kid.
She never regretted to have him but doing the same mistake seems a bit too old for her to play or maybe she was just a plain stupid skunk.
Her past's pain and misery mocked her.
She felt scared that she called Shin to meet up with her tonight. Forgetting everything including the supposedly date with Kimball.
Going back to the present,
She can't believed what she just saw. She felt like she was being used and the worst part of it, iwas that she let him to.
Either way, they both agreed to be casual yet she didn't expect him to cheat on her.
In one way or the other, though they don't have any official relationship,she still felt the pain flowing deep down inside her body. Knowing that besides her, he was seeing another woman broke her ego and maybe her heart too.
The next day,
Arabella lied about her reason why she hadn't made on their date. But Kimball on the other hand, doesn't seem to care.
His cold stare makes Arabella assumeed, of course, the worst.
What should it be?
She decided to broke up with or whatever. This time she will not going anywhere.
Yet, she filed an indefinite leave of absence to sort out the next chapter of her life and thankfully he approves it.
She needed some good self-reflection.
In a way, she'd decided to face the fate she'd chosen to trekk without blaming him or anyone, head on.
She soon to be a mother again on their 2nd love child and she didn't want her soon-to-be-child to call her a coward. She'd been here, exactly the same road she'd trek 10 years ago and maybe she can get through with it again today.
At the park,
Arabella told everything to her personal shrink, Shin her best friend from high school. And he was right yet again.
"Truth will always be absolute. You can deny it, shade or bend it, it will still stay the same. There's still been right and wrong. For now you were on the wrong side but you can make it right", he said silently.
Arabella reflects on her situation. Her head was spinning she can't wrapped up what's he's been saying.
She honestly wanted to tell him that she's trying her best, just that it wasn't good enough for her to confess her feelings towards Kimball.
Due to the sudden attack of stress, Arabella felt dizzy and ready to pass out in any moment. Shin caught her and carries her towards the bench.
And that's the scene Kimball witnessed. Though, he's playing tough, he still care for her, and by the way he was not stalking her. He just bumped into that same park where she was and her man.
Okay fine, maybe he was spying on her since the day they'd broken up.
He just wanted to win her back yet every time he started his moves, something went off.
That brings him on this park and saw her with that blonde guy.
He clenched fist. The muscles on his neck tightened.
He was so ready to stranggle that blonde guy when a sight of a young man came into view and approached them.
The little boy hugged and kissed them both, and that got him stopped.
His shoulder felt heavy when he realizes that Arabella has a family. That, maybe she was just a bored wife and during the time of her hunting he was there, available to be her prey for the game she was playing.
Again, for the second time, she broke his heart without even her knowing it.
His mind looked back from the time he admited to himself that she did loved her down to the day on his building and saw her again.
It's exactly 10 years now and still, he did nothing. And when he saw her again, he agreed on her no-strings-attached policy.
Now, he can't help himself wonder what could have been when he searched for her and confessed his feelings 10 years ago?
What if he'd stopped her when she broke up with him? And yet it will never change the fact that she had a child.
But what if he told her the true story behind his lies?
Would she believe him? Would she stay?
So many things he wanted to do but he was way too late now.
And like a loser he turned his back and took off just like that.
What your naked eyes see's was not what really it seems.
Sometimes, love is not enough to make two people live together.
Regret comes from a long way.
No one knows anyone.
Asking does wonders.
Life is simple were just have a lot of free time to complicate it.
Wanted it doesn't matter, doing it matters.
Lots of Love,
PS: please let me know what u think about the whole story, I wanna know. Thanks.
