"That really happened, Woah! Jake really got some guts!" I say to Violet on the phone. She narrated all that happened at the dinner and all I can say was that if this marriage is happening then these two are fated for each other, because knowing Violets mum, her only child can marry someone with a character like Jake. I feel so guilty, but I can tell Violet that I put her in this predicament. Sure they were still going to marry with or without the mate bond, but telling their parents they were mates made them more intent on getting married. If only I kept my mouth shut.
"Ill call you back," I said to Violet after hearing the commotion downstairs.
" Shes mine! you get that!" I heard Max say to Josh, mums fiancé. He really got some guts to show his face here after all he had done.
" Get out of my house max" my mum screamed as she shoved Max, but he didn budge, instead he kept reaching out for Josh.
I stood there watching the drama unfold. I wasn in support of the two so why would I butt in, they can murder themselves for all I care.
Josh was a complete gigolo. Nothing can change my mind.
My mum shelters him, feeds him, buys his clothes, and does everything for him. But because shes blindly in love to the point she couldn read the writing on the wall that screamed run. He screams red flag!
As for Max, after bringing my mum to the lowest by introducing her to drugs, he ran off with her savings and jewelry, and Im sure hes low on cash thats why he is here.
I thought werewolves were one of the smartest creatures, but my mum proves that theory wrong, or maybe shes the only foolish one. She just doesn know when to give up. Maybe she mixed with humans too much to start thinking with her heart instead of her head.
After Max had left after leaving Josh with a swollen eye my mum turned to look at me. I glared at her before stomping my feet to my room. I bet shes looking at the floor dejectedly, while Josh was giving fake sympathies. Im honestly tired of all this.
I picked up my phone and dialed Thomass number. I wasn expecting him to pick up the call that fast.
" Hey Kimberly," Thomas said on picking up the call.
"Hey", I said lazily.
" You called?"
"Yeah. Want to have some drinks," I asked as I searched my wardrobe for cloth.
"Its hot noon Kim, who drinks by this time of the day"
" Did something happen? You know you can talk to me"
"I know. Lets just meet up, anywhere is fine by me, I just want to leave this house, its suffocating".
" Ok lets meet up at a cafè, Ill text you the address"
"Ok, thank you, Tom."
The call ended and I got ready to go meet up with Tom. If theres anyone who knows so much about me, its Tom. Hes been there all my life and I can be more grateful to anyone but him. Yeah, Violet is my best friend but I don want to trouble her, that girl has so much on her plate and Im not ready to add mine to it.
I picked a white top and a pair of blue jeans with a pair of white sneakers, and with that, I was ready to go. My hair was lifted into a ponytail giving me a youthful vibe. I looked at myself one more time in the mirror and I headed for the door.
Id already reached the door of the living room when my mum called. I stood without turning as I waited for her next words. I just can face her now.
" Are you going out?"
"What does it seem like Im doing" I snapped.
" Can we talk?"
"Later. I don want to talk to you now," I said and I left. I can imagine my mum standing and looking at the door, maybe crying...she brought this upon herself.
" Wait...so your mom is getting married, " Thomas said with his eye popped wide open.
"Not only that, shes the one paying for the wedding, down to the mans suit," I said completely furious
" Then hes a complete gigolo. What man wants to get married without even having little cash on him? I bet hes going to divorce her soon and claim half of her properties"
"Exactly but she can see it. Max even came this morning. gosh, it was such a huge scene," I say, frustration etched all over my face.
" Max as in Max?" Thomas asked which had me nodding.
" He sure has some guts to show up after all he had done. Why didn you call me earlier? I would have put that bastard in his place"
Are you not taking this too seriously, I asked seeing Thomas fuming.
" I-I mean, you suffered a lot when he was with your mom. I was only looking out for you." Thomas said while chuckling
"Did tell Jake and Violets parent that they are mates? " Thomas asked
"How did you know?"
" I figured. Jake is suspicious that you spilled the beans, youll be in big trouble if he finds out you
e the one" Thomas said teasingly.
"I didn mean bad by telling them but...just don let him know, Im sure he can do anything without proof, I said casually. If he asks me Ill just deny it. Simple."
