Ian Tristan * ⃣
Its been three days since Dad mentioned about my marriage with his business partner’s daughter.
I have been avoiding Tessa after that day.
I just don’t know how to face her telling her I don’t want to marry her again after promising her that?
I’m so confused and ashamed of myself right now .
She’s the only woman I have ever fell for still, I can’t be with her?
Why is dad bent on destroying what matters to me most.
He doesn’t care about my feelings, all he cares about is his business.
What type of a father does that?
Sometimes I wonder if I’m truly his son.
I so hate him for deciding my life for me.
I think I know what to do, I have to confront dad .
Yes I have to
The ringing of my phone brought me back to reality.
The caller ID was almond (Tessa)
My hand trembled.
What am I going to tell her ?
Scared and nervous, I cleared my throat before picking the call to avoid any suspicion
Ian are you okay? What’s wrong with you? Is everything alright? I have been calling for the nth time now and you weren’t picking up. Are you fine?
She blabbed .
I ran my hands through my messy hair thinking of an answer to give her .
Are you there?
Huh..yeah, uh.uhmm I’m fine almond I my phone was in silent. I am in the middle of a meeting.
I lied. I don’t have any option either .
Meeting? Ian? Seriously? Meeting? Are you fu.cking kidding me? Today is Sunday for heaven sake.
Just perfect! I’m now caught up with my own lie. How do I explain this now?
Y..yeah..I know it’s Sunday, uhhm some of my clients came over . Yes they came to my house.
This isn’t you Ian! You have changed for the past three days. Are you avoiding me? Did I do something to get you angry? If I did then I’m sorry. Please just stop ignoring me.
Listen Tessa baby, you didn’t do anything okay? I’m sorry..
Then what’s wrong?
She asked in a pained voice. I don’t mean to make her feel this way.
Nothing Tessa I will talk to you later.
Okay should I come over?
I’m busy don’t you get it?
Shit! What have I said ?
You don’t need to say anything else. I’m sorry to disturb you. I promise you won’t see me again to bother you. My flight is ready and I’m going out of your life Ian.
She was crying, I can tell by just hearing her voice.
Gosh! I’m so stupid
No please.. don’t leave, I’m sorry please Tessa .
Have a great life ahead Mr Ian Tristan
She hung up..
No! This isn’t happening!
I hurriedly sped off to my car only to discover the keys where inside.
I sigh irritatingly running inside to grab it.
I can’t let her go this way..
I need to reach her so fast, she can’t leave me .
I hate myself!
Tessa * ⃣
I sniffed for the tenth time after I spoke with Ian.
I don’t want to believe what my mind is telling me.
Maybe he doesn’t want me anymore.
I’m going back home.
Maybe there, I can find peace
I came out of the car as the driver also waited for my flight to take off before he goes .
After a while, the plane was ready to take off.
I took my sit beside the window seeing the city of Seoul .
I’m gonna miss it, I don’t want to admit I’m also going to miss Ian the most . God has it’s plan you know!
We were just to meet and path someday.
I assume he’s never going to set his eyes on me again.
One more glance, the plane took off as I bade Seoul a farewell.
Mum I’m home” I yelled immediatetly I got home. Happy to be back home.
Hey hunny, i missed you so much, how was your vacation?” She asked whilst hugging me
It was fine mum, I enjoyed it so much” I emphasized on the words
Wow! That’s good to know”

Dad ” I shrieked as I hugged him.

“I miss you too princess, I guess you enjoyed yourself back in Seoul?” He asked
” I did ”
Well then, we have another surprise for you baby girl” he grinned while mum nodded .
What are they up to this time around?
What’s the surprise?” I asked curiously.
