I ran my hand through my hair as I sighed . Why am I even surprised ,it is really so obvious. They won’t look exactly like each other if they were not twins. I have to tell Veronica this ,the main reason we have not been getting along is because we have been hiding stuffs from each other . I walked out of my room and headed straight to Veronica’s hotel room but she was not there .
“Where could she be ?” I asked as I knocked on the hotel door continuously.
“What are you doing here?” A voice asked while I turned to my left to see who it was .
“Veronica you are here ,I need to talk to you ”
“But I do not want to talk to you William ….just leave me alone please ” she said as
she opened the door to her room,walked in and wanted to slam at my face but I stopped that and got into her room before she could do that .
“William get out of my room right now ”
“Not after I talk to you ”
“Well no problem will be more than happy to call security right now ” she said as she walked towards the LAN phone but I grabbed her by the arm and turned her around immediately.
“First you listen to me ,then you can call security”
“Don’t you get it ,I do not want to listen to you at all ” she said as she struggled to free her arm from my grip as tears rolled down her cheeks.
“You know Veronica Hathaway you are the most selfish woman I know “I said as I used my hand to wipe her tears”life doesn’t revolve around you alone Veronica.some of us are hurting here too..I am hurting too. I can’t stand seeing you cry ,but it seems what I feel doesn’t matter to you at all. It doesn’t ” I said as she stared at me while more tears rolled down her cheeks .
“Please stop doing that” I pleased as I used my hand to wipe that tears”do not make me feel like I am the Reason you crying now ”
“I am selfish Williams , because I can’t seem to forgive you for lying to me . For loving you so much and still denying myself the opportunity to be with you just cause I am upset …infact now that you said it ,I just realized that I am probably the most selfish woman in the entire world …infact now that you mention it William I need to get back on track…I need time to forgive you ,for that I need space ”
“If space is what you need I can give you that ,do you want me to stay away for a week or maybe a month ..I can do that ”
“I am not telling you to stay away from a week or month”
“Then a day …I can’t stay away from you longer than a month ,even that feels like enternity”
“William I want you to stay away from me till I am willing to let go ”
“Then how long will that take ?”
“Years ” she said while I stared at her and slowly let go of her hand
“Veronica years …I might die if I stay away from you for years ,so why are you comfortable making this decision”
“Because I feel that is the right thing to do now”
“Why are you always testing my love for you ” I said as I grabbed her arms ” you make me feel like this relationship is one sided ..like I am really the one who loves you and not the other round ”
“If that what you believe, then so be it ”
“Don’t do this Veronica , haven’t I been punished enough stop punishing me like this ”
“William please ..if you really do love me and you care about me ..do this for me
….William I have been shattered before ,I really can’t do this anymore.i can’t
please… I am begging you …just leave and never come back this time ” she said while I slowly let go off her .
She was angry with me before ,but she never took such a drastic step . But why did she do this ,maybe it true . Veronica Hathaway doesn’t really love me .
The paper I was going to show her fell from my hand as I walked out of the room .
Sometimes I begin to wonder if this was a mistake . I feel like I made a mistake since I have falling totally in love with the wrong woman .
My dear grandson Williams walks Into his room as he started throwing random objects away in anger .
“Williams you , what is wrong with you ” I said as I walked towards him to stop him ,why are you doing this .. why are you hurting yourself like this . I asked as I brought out of the first aid box to treat his wound .
“Grandma you told me …that Veronica is a wonderful woman ”
“Yes I did ”
“And you also told me that I can never find a woman better than her ”
“William why ”
“Grandma why does Veronica hurt me over and over again . Why does it feels like my feelings doesn’t matter to her …I am head over heels for that woman but it seems it a one sided love ” he said as he picked a vase and threw it against the wall
“William stop it ” I said as I held him by the hand so he will stop throwing stuffs..
He looked as tears rolled down his cheek. My grandson never cries….he loves
Veronica too much but it seems she doesn’t realize this ..
“William look at me “I said as I hugged him “everything will be alright ”
“Trust me William ,it will all be alright ” he is not so different now . He does the same thing when he was just a kid. Whenever he wants something and he is not able to get it ,he always throw tantrums until he gets what he wants . I never made him realise he can’t have everything. I always get him everything he wants .I need to talk to Veronica ,I know she also loves him . she is just too upset to realize that .
I need to talk to her
I walked out of the restaurant later in the evening after closing hours as I bumped into Williams grandmother.
“Grandma” I called her name as I hugged her
“Hello my dear ” she said as she hugged me too
“Grandma what brings you here ?” I asked with a smile on my face
“I need to talk to you about William..he is….”
“What wrong with grandmother William ,is he okay ..I hope he did not hurt himself or something”I asked as I panicked
“Calm down Veronica , William is okay ..I see you love my grandmother so much but why are you hurting him and yourself ..he loves you too much I get jealous sometimes because I feel he loves you more than he loves me now
“Don’t be ridiculous guys Williams loves you the most”
“Veronica please come back to my William ..you mean a lot to him”
“Grandma please do not embarass me by apologizing.. grandmother I can’t say no to you but I am still not ready to forgive Williams”
“Veronica don’t ”
“Grandma please I have to go ” if I stay for just a moment longer , grandmother will surely convince em ..I can’t bare to see that woman hurt but I still can’t go back to Williams . At least I can’t do that now
The traffic light turned red and I was finally able to Cross to the other street
I finally crossed to the other side and stepped on the sidewalk
“Veronica wait ” grandmother said as she also wanted to Cross to the other side to meet me
The traffic light suddenly turned green and I immediately panicked
“Grandmother don’t…….”before I knew what was going on, grandmother was ran over by a car”
“Noooooooooo” I screamed as I walked towards her lifeless body on the floor
“Grandmother wake up …wake up … somebody call the ambulance” I screamed ”
grandmother don’t do this to me please wake up,wake up. ”

“Oh you going to give another excuse,why don’t you tell him it was your fault grandmother is in there right …why don’t you tell her what you did ”
