After five years, he just happened to be walking down her street? Impossible! This can't be happening! How dare he - before she could even finish her sentence, she hurriedly closed the curtains, trying not to be seen from her large windows.
She released a deep sigh, knowing for sure that he did not see her when he tried to look up at the third floor of their house, where her room was. She stomped her feet and threw herself on the bed. She then grabbed her phone and texted a friend. " Saw him again! Ugh!"
What the heck is he doing here? Did he come back for me? There is no f****** way! She threw her phone and started sobbing. She was trying to act tough but she knew she was shaking inside.
Camila had tried her hardest not to think about this for so long. But this time, she can't help but let this rush of memories win over her. In her mind, she was cursing, if not stabbing him for what he had done before.
Yes, they were arranged for marrying each other but she knew that they somehow fell in love after some time. She was sure about that. In fact, there was nothing she was so sure about but that.
She was the one who despised the idea so much between the two of them in the first place. She hated her parents for this, wanted to run away and forget everyone and everything she had. But Andrew, that same good-looking Andrew who passed by her house a while ago held her back from doing so.
He believed that love can be learned. And that this arrangement only needed a few beach dates here and there to work out. He persuaded her that they can try this out and just give it a shot. And so they did! They visited Machu Picchu together, took a private Gondola ride in Venice, and tried every food you can find on Korean streets.
By the time they went back to the Philippines, she knew she was smitten. She did not even regret it because he too made it clear to her that he had fallen in love. Who wouldn't though? They spent a year together roaming around the world.
Within those lone times with him, she saw how gentle of a man he was. He never failed to hold her hand when walking, made sure she was comfortable, and even cooked her favorite dishes when she didn't feel like eating takeaways.
On the 8th of November, everything was set. The beach wedding reception looked so dreamy, filled with flowers of all kinds. Visitors in their best clothes were all smiles, kids with flower crowns were trying to behave in their seats, and the entourage was so ready to march along the aisle.
And the most excited among everyone was her- Camila. She was nervous and giddy. She was wearing this long elegant gown, studded with diamonds that sparkled in the afternoon light. She waited for Andrew for minutes.
It was weird that she came there first but she understood that he was gonna be late. He was always like that. He was never on time. But minutes turned to hours and the excitement turned to fear, then embarrassment, then anger. He never came. He did not show up on their wedding day!
She was so immersed in her thoughts, remembering the day that he ditched her while staring at the ceiling. She would have understood him if he only spoke up and explained. She can't get her mind off that one time they got to the airport. A girl was in the line with other people waiting for their loved ones to come out of the plane.
When they came closer, Andrew and the girl caught each other's eyes. She got teary and uttered "Andrew?". He cut the eye contact, held her hand tighter, and told her Let's go? after giving her a kiss. She didn't put too much mind into it. Besides, what harm can that one word do? But Who was that girl? Was it because of her that he left me without a word?
What is up, friends? How's your day so far? I've used the most dangerous random prompt generator again and this was what I got. I set the timer to 10 minutes and just let it all out. I don't know if it makes sense to you hahaha anyways, thank you so much for reading, until next time! Ciao!
