I woke up to the sound of my phone ringing. I walked to the balcony as I didn’t want to wake him up.
“Yes I’m coming to the headquarters today”
I hung up the phone and stepped in to the kitchen . Last night was like a dream . I still remember how it felt Daniel’s well shaped mascular body against mine. His lips were biteable and his body was touchable. The night went blur as I crawled into his arms.
“God ! You’re amazing ” he wispherd in my ears.
I felt as my cheeks burning . “Stop it idiot you are not supposed to have feelings for him it would be a distraction” I said myself smiling alone. Seeing his peaceful sleeping face made me think how cute he is. “Fine Rachelle you can’t drool over him ” I had to say it to myself again and again.
“Good morning beautiful” Danielle came closer to me with a cocky smile on his face. He pulled me in and gave me a long passionate kiss.
I smiled weakly and pushed him aside.
“This is not like you Rachelle. What’s bothering you ” asked Danielle squeezing my hand.
“I need to go to the hospital my brother needs me “.
“I’m coming with you Rachelle”
“Please don’t I really need space right now”. I said with a melancholy voice.
“Please be safe” said Danielle weakly smiling.
I slammed the door behind me and got in the car. I drove as fast as I can to the headquarters.
Romano welcomed me smiling . “Well done Rachelle I’m proud of you”.
“I’m flattered” I said annoyingly and looked out to see if someone is coming.
“Jay has been able to broke into Danielle’s house and get his documents while you were distracting him” said Romano not letting me to be quite for a moment.
“Yes I know that’s what he was supposed to do”. I said angrily .
The next moment I turned around I saw jay smiling.
“Well done both of you . We are done with your payments. Feel free to go. Said Romano and he left taking the documents from jay.
“Rachelle you should be careful. We know what Danielle is capable of” said Romano looking back again.
” Like I didn’t know” I said furiously.
Now it’s me and jay alone. An awkward silent went between us.
” So how did it go with Danielle? ” Asked jay looking deep into my eyes .
I knew he was not happy that I had to sleep with him. Even though we are not dating there’s a chemistry between us. The heat is getting bigger and I can’t resist him but I can’t let a man to destroy my life again.
“It went ok I guess” I said looking away.
“You’re a bad liar Rachelle . I know you enjoyed his company”
“As if you didn’t enjoy Sonia’s company” I said it in a most sarcastic tone .
Of course he is jealous as much as I’m…
He looked away. I noticed tears in his eyes. He walked out . No goodbyes , no goodbye kisses.
I felt as if my heart was shattered.
I was in a hospital room when I woke up. I remember I was driving and a black defender was coming towards my car. My head hurts as if someone cuts my scalp into tiny pieces.
“Miss you shouldn’t be out of bed please get in the bed” said a young nurse. She helped me to get back to bed.
“How are you feeling now miss?” She asked kindly. ” Who brought me here” . I’m definitely not fine so I wanted to know something I don’t know. ” A random person had found your body lying on the road and he took you to the hospital but he said he would like to remain anonymous. I didn’t bother who brought me here. But I need to get out of hospital soon. ” Am I allowed to go home?”
“Sorry Miss you need to be here . Although your wounds are not mortal you still need medicine to recover.”
I asked the nurse to switch on the TV as she was leaving the room. I was looking at the city through window and I looked at the TV as I heard my name. Police found that a girl named Rachelle died in a car accident and her body is unrecognisable due to burning . That’s my car they are showing. I pinched myself to make sure that I’m not dead or dreaming. Somebody wants me to die. I know who could it be…..
My thoughts are disturbed by the nurse .”Miss may I know your name and the address ? ”
I looked at the TV and I let world believe I’m dead. ” I’m savannah . Savannah Morello” .
“Miss Do you want me to inform your family ? ”
“No thank you. I live by myself” . I said it avoiding eye contact with the nurse. Before she asks anything else I closed my eyes indicating the nurse that I need to sleep.
As I was discharged after two weeks I went back to my house and collected my belongings and credit cards. I made sure to disguise myself to prevent somebody noticing me again . The next moment I was in a flight, flying far away from California . I was thinking how hard my life was. I was all alone since the day I was born. I wish my mother never died giving me birth. I hate men since the day my own father sold me to a brothel . I’m grateful for Romano that he rescued me from that hell , yet I had to be his puppet. I was trained. I did everything he asked. He was the only family I got after all. I was always safe because I was working to Mafia and they never let me down. I have killed so many yet I never regret. But assassinating Danielle changed my life. Jay was appointed by Romano to help the mission while I distract Danielle. But jay was my distraction. His gentleness and sweetness made me fall for him . I felt I’m living again when he came to my life. Even though I don’t let anyone to be in my life I can’t resist jay. His voice is like the music to me. But I need to move on now . I sighed deeply. I can move on since I have a fake ID and passport but I my heart only begs for jay. What’s the meaning of this life ? No family ! No friends ! . Again it’s me and myself all alone…………
As I arrived Switzerland first thing I did was find a home to live far away from town. I forgot how miserable my life is for a little moment. The atmosphere is breathtakingly beautiful. That feeling of breeze and smell of beautiful flowers took my melancholic mood for awhile.
I tried to wash away all my pain and horrors of past. Now they don’t hurt as much as it hurt me at the beginning. It’s been an year since the day I left America. Still I didn’t hear a word from jay. I decided to continue my life with what I have. I became a language teacher at the church to keep myself occupied. Being called “teacher” made me happy. I miss jay so much but little kids and their love make me want to live again. Their smile makes me think of my own children and family which is never going to happen. I smile every day just like a flower blooms every morning after a stormy night.
I woke up to a dream of jay kissing my forehead. I sighed alone and got ready to go to the church. As I was done with teaching I headed back to my house. I saw a black Audi is in front of my house. I entered the house with the suspicion of a murderer attacking me. As I realised there’s nobody in the living room I stepped in to the kitchen suddenly someone grabbed me from my back and pulled me closer to him. I went speechless in fear.
“Shhhh it’s me” said an familiar voice . I turned back .
“JAY !!!! ”
I didn’t know what I really felt when I saw him . I pulled him in to a tight hug and cried leaning on his chest until the last drop of my tears come out.
“You don’t have to get my T-shirt wet to show your affection ” said jay laughing .
I giggled as he said it. Jay and his humour never go away.
“See something you like” said he smiling gently at me.
I was speechless. If only he knew how happy I’m to see him .
“I Missed you a lot Rachelle”
“So that’s why you took an year to come ” I said punching softly on his arm.
“If only you knew Rachelle. I have been watching you since the day you were hit by the car , since the day you left America. I made it appears that you were dead to protect you from Danielle . I gave you the space to recover. I wanted you to stand on your feet again ”
He pulled me into a tight hug again.
“Jay please never leave me”
I wispherd in his ears . His long passionate kiss made a shiver goes down in my spine .
He kneeled down in front of me and took my hand .
“Rachelle will you be my amazing wife for the rest of my life ”
” I will be the wife to the most amazing man” I said shedding happy tears.
