My chest was paining and my heart was twisting uncontrablly in my ribcage. It was getting harder for me to breathe by each passing second.
I felt him grab my back, sliding his arms around my waist. He pressed himself further against my back, and I could feel his heart beating fast, blood pumping rapidly in his veins. I stiffened at how his tight chest and abdomen was feeling against the wet bare skin of my back.
"Got you." He put his chin above my head, his tight arms engulfed my thin body from behind. All my thoughts were focused on the fact that his muscular arms were now settling above my chest, creating tiny butterflies to dance around in my stomach.
Stupid feelings always decide to come out in the wrong time. It's always the wrong timing between us. Always!
"Let me go, Heath. You know it's wrong." I whispered, as he shifted himself closer towards me.
"What's wrong with me hugging you?"
I took a deep breath. "You just got cheated on by my sister who you were about to marry in some weeks! Not to mention, you loved her so much you fought against your whole family to marry her. Is that enough of a reason now?"
With that being said, he left me abruptly and I could feel him still standing behind me. "You just have to mention that now, don't you? When I'm trying to cope up with the truth?"
"It's the truth. You really were getting married to-"
"Is that the reason you're leaving me?!"
I frowned. "What?"
"I was going to marry Kiara. You didn't like it-"
"Why wouldn't I like it if you'd marry my sister?!" I yelled, my own temper rising at his random observation.
"It's simple. You were jealous."
Follow the journey of Heath Evercrest and Hazel Scarlett, as Hazel struggles to put up with her employer's sudden unexpected odd request, while her own heart threatens to betray her sooner or later, in her own quest.
