Today was the day, Alisa was going to find her fiancé and go out to dinner after he was gone for almost a month for work. Her fiancé was a wealthy man, they were only twenty two year of age and he was one of the most successful stock brokers in London. She was a debutant and the daughter of the Chevalier family, one of the richest families in London. They were supposed to meet at the restaurant Laurel but she decided to surprise him in his pent house apartment. Then when she opened the door with a box of his favorite candy M&M’s she was horrified. He was there on the couch holding another women, she was beautiful, long blond hair and an hour glass figure. They didn’t hear me walk in since I had a key, but I was there standing numb not knowing what was there more to say. They have meet in high school Alisa and Jared had been high school sweet heart, their parents were happy for their union, since his family was a famous name in Manhattan. He had cheated on her before but she thought that he would change, she really did. He said he would never do that again after he placed the engagement on her finger just a month before. She staggered backwards tipping one of the flower vas shattering it to the floor. They finally noticed her presence and Jared looked at her with an expression she had never seen him had, guilt. The girl on the other hand looked like a prostitute, and after examining her fake Dior bag and extremely cheap looking top that she wore as a dress. Alisa started to think that she really was one… Jared had cheated on her with a real prostitute that he brought to his home that he was asking her to move into next month. A tear slipped from her bright green eyes. He got up, whipped the lipstick marks on his face while trying to get up and get a hold of her. But then the prostitute asked him for her pay, which confirmed her disgust. He was with a whore and a real one. He paid her and quickly turned her to the door, she left with the money in her hand and brushed Alisa’s shoulder as she walked out. Alisa barely touched her but she felt so filthy.
“Ali, I can explain… I was… This was…” Before he finished, she plucked off the huge diamond off her finger and threw it to his face. He caught it and looked wide eyed. He had cheated on her before, yes. But she really only stayed angry for about a day and always forgave him. But this was a new low for Jared, or did she just didn’t know? She would have to shake it out of Connor when she sees him after this.
“Jared, I can’t… This is just too much. I should have done this from when you slept with Kate, but I believed you would change… But you prove me wrong every single time I gave you a second chance, so it’s over.” I said and turned away for the door leaving his key and M&M’s on the coffee table. He ran and blocked the door.
“Ali, listen… It was just I had too much to drink and…” Close now she could smell the scotch in his breath. She felt more disgusted; he was drinking before seeing her and getting with a prostitute. After a month they have been apart, did she mean so little to him?
“No Jared, get out of the way. NO more second chances, yours is used up.” I walked up to him and placed a hand on his face; he grabbed it and looked into her eyes. But her mind was made up. She placed a light kiss on Jared’s lips and whispered.
“I love you… But you don’t love me so let’s just end this.” I said and pushed a dazed Jared out of the way. I ran to the elevator, to the parking lot the… Walking out I felt a hard pain in my chest, I was having an asthma attack! I was going through my bag for an inhaler but it was nowhere to be found, dropping all my stuff to the floor I was already at the parking lot so no one saw me faint but then when my body dropped to the floor, a car stopped in front of me. A guy came out but my sight was already blurry from lack of oxygen, he kept screaming in a panic frenzy and then he looked at my stuff and pulled out an inhaler but then I was already blacked out.
When I came too… Looking up the bright light was blearing down and I knew that this was a hospital. Spending most of my childhood in a hospital from my weak lungs this is just a regular sight. Trying to sit up heard someone beside me, he had light blue eyes, ebony choppy hair and seeing him stand up he was really tall.
“Who are you?” I asked and my voice sounded horrible… He smiled and handed me a glass of water, I smiled back and drank it all in one gulp. He chuckled as I choked a little bit on my water, when I looked closer to his face, somehow it looked familiar… Then I had a flash back. It was right before I went to college, it was prom. I and Jared have just been voted prom queen and queen, that until this day I don’t know how. Jared was extremely good looking with his move star looks, sandy blond hair, dark blue eyes and star of the lacrosse team on top of his looks. I on the other hand was only a girl with raven hair, dull green eyes, and normal pail skinned body. I was even in the painting club, which was the nerd herd at school… He was…
“Mathew Schiller!!!” I screamed and he stepped back a couple of steps and looked at me like I’ve just sprouted a second head. He was the guy who was with me when I found out at the end of prom night! All of our senior class were staying at the Forth Seasons and booked almost every single room available. Jared and I were staying at the same room but I crashed on the bed as soon as we reached the room, note to self no over doing the champagne EVER again. Yes prom at our high school has champagne, no cheap spiked punch, and they thought it would make the kids less drunk (Alcohol is alcohol people! No matter what kind…) then when I woke up about an hour later looking around the after parties on the sweets for him, Liana said she saw him in the room with Kate. I barged in and you can guess what I saw. I walked out and into the pool area and alone. Then someone tapped me on the shoulder, it was Mathew Schiller. He sat beside me, stayed for my rage stories and actually listened with an actually useful advice for me after. But even though he looked similar, he bulked up and no more glasses and acne at that! He looked way better.
“I’m surprise you remembered me…” He said and I can see him blush, he was still as cute as always. We have never spoken a word to each other before that night but how could I forget him?
“How could I forget? Thanks a lot by the way for that…” I said and smiled, him on the other hand seem to be still in shock. Maybe he forgot who I was, or worse what happened at the prom and is now looking at me like I hit my head in the fall and magically knows him! I am such a dork.
“Do you remember who I am???” Then I think that completely snap him out of the trance. He looked at me and grinned.
“Yes I do, your Alisa Chevalier. Angry Girl on prom night…” He said and chuckled again, this time I blushed. Then I remembered what just happened, I broke up with Jared and he cheated on me with a Prostitute! A bloody prostitute!!! I can feel my face hot with rage and my hands clench into fists. Then just like prom night, I bitched to Mattie about Jared and see him go from confused, annoyance, to pure red faced rage I have right now.
“Please tell me you broke up with him…” He hissed and I was actually afraid a little for my life. He looked like he would rip Jared’s throats out if he was here that is.
“I did.” Then I can see his whole face lit up like a kid in a candy store, I smiled along with him. Then reality came back, I had to talk to everyone that the engagement is off, my mother, Connor… CONNOR! That little thing better tell me what Jared had been doing in Italy on business, if it really was for that. Connor was Jared’s assistant and somewhat a friend of mine in a way, he was gay and if I was escorting Jared on work related parties he was my gossip buddy. I put my finger up to stop anything Mattie was about to say, grabbed my Balenciaga bag and pulled out a Blackberry.
Connor you bloody hell, you better tell me what Jared has been doing in Italy or I swear to bloody Jesus that you will no longer have a job with Jared or ANYWHERE!
After texting that I’m sure a call will be made after less than 15 minutes. Satisfied, I looked at Mattie and grinned, he grinned back and made a face. He was funny, and the total opposite of Jared. Sweet, shy and goofy… It was refreshing. Then like clockwork, my phone rang just in time. But I honestly feel hurt; I and Connor share everything about our love lives…
“Connor!!!” I screamed into the phone. But it wasn’t Connor…
“Ali? Please you have to listen I was drunk and she slipped me some drugs… You have to forgive me, please Ali… Please…” Then when I was about to tell him off, Mattie snatched my phone and smirked at me.
“Hey bastard, leave her alone and don’t beg like that! You’ve put her trough enough; she’s in the hospital for crying out loud!”
“What! Who the hell is this!? ALI!” Then Mattie just smiled and shut it off. He looks at me with an innocent face and gave me back my phone, in the mine time I couldn’t help but notice he was becoming bolder since prom. Like almost a totally different person.
