🔵Beck Oliver’s POV🔵
I showered and changed into white shorts and a red vest. I strolled to Tori’s room and knocked.
The door opened and her head popped out
Tori: how may I help you?
Me: why I’m I seeing just your head?
Tori: cause I don’t want you to see the rest of my body
Me: why? Are you naked?
Tori: not yet
Me: then I’m coming in
She sighed and opened the door. She was in a towel but her body was dry. Maybe she’s going to take a shower
The little room mom gave her was now very different. She rearranged it with her own stuff
Tori: I just did a little make over
Me: and it’s really nice. Is that what you’ve been doing since?
I smiled and sat on her bed. I drew her hand and she sat on my legs
Me: I might share this room with you
Tori: you’ll sleep on the bed but wake up on the floor
I laughed and arranged her hair then kissed her lips
Tori: can I shower now?
Me: you’ll have to use the shower in my room. This one is faulty
Tori: oh really? I didn’t know
Me: let me take you there
She stood up and we walked to my room. I showed her the bathroom and she pecked me before I left. I went downstairs and mom was still baking
Me: this place smells so good
Mom: it’s not the place that smells good but the cookies I’m making
Me: can you add cupcakes too?
Me: Tori likes cupcakes
Mom: okay I’ll try
Me: thanks mom
I brought out two soda cans from the fridge and went back upstairs. I went straight to my room and dropped the cans on a table. Tori came out of the bathroom
Me: so soon?
Tori: it’s a shower, not a bath
Me: but still, you came out really fast
Me: take this with you
I gave her one of the soda cans
She turned to go but I held her waist and drew her back
I brought my face close to hers
I took her lips and gently kissed her. I held her face and passionately sucked on her lips
She dropped the can on the table and held unto my shirt
I turned and carried her to the bed, I continued to kiss her until my hands involuntarily removed her towel. She gasped but I smiled at her
Tori: no but.. is this the time? I mean your mom and…
Me: sshh.. You talk too much
She breathed a sigh and I laughed and kissed her again. I didn’t plan for this to happen but I guess it’s going to happen today
🔵Mrs Oliver’s POV🔵
I poured out the milk into the glass and rearranged the cookies. Then I took my phone and went through Mark’s picture online. I sighed and dropped the phone when I saw Tori and Beck holding hands and coming down the stairs. I stood up with a sad face
Beck: hey mom
Me: hey, you can have your cookies now
They smiled and sat down, Beck looked up at me and frowned. He already knows that I’m not in a good mood.
Me: I’m going to my room now
I left and immediately began to feel headache. I sat down on my bed and groaned while pressing my temples with my fingers.
When I feel this type of headache, it means my blood pressure has increased
I laid down and closed my eyes, I hope what I’m about to do will not go wrong
Me: why do I feel like your mom is sad?
Beck: she’s just tired
Me: I don’t think so. Why don’t you try and ask her, maybe she got a call which upset her
Beck: hmm, okay.. I’ll do that later
Me: all right, uhm baby can we go and get some ice-cream cake later?
Beck: ohh, sure. But first open up
He brought a broken piece of cookie before me. I opened my mouth and he dropped it in
I chewed on it
Me: it’s sweeter when it comes from your hands
Beck: uhhh you just wanna make me do it again. Hahaha
I laughed with him, he brought another one and I deliberately bit his hand
Beck: hey,, bad girl
Me: bad girls don’t love good boys
Beck: are you saying I’m a bad boy?
Me: I don’t know.
I smirked at him and he cracked.
Just then, his mom entered
Mrs Oliver : Beck please come over
Beck: okay mom… I’m coming baby
He pecked me and went to his mother. My eyes met with hers and I knew all was not well
🔴Beck Oliver’s POV🔴
I followed her to her room. She gently sat on her bed while I closed the door
Me: what’s wrong mom?
Mom: so you really love Tori?
I raised a brow
Me: yes.. Is there a problem with that?
Mom: yes. I want you to quit seeing her?
Me: WHAT? WHY?
Mom: no need to shout about it? I don’t want you to continue dating her. There’s a strong reason behind what I’m saying.
Me: then tell me the reason. I wanna hear your so called strong reason
Mom: I don’t have anything to say to you now just do as I say
Me: but why? You don’t like Tori? But mom, you were nice to her moments ago
Mom: I didn’t want her to suspect anything that’s why I was being nice
I scratched my head and laughed sarcastically
Me: you know what mom, I’m not breaking up with Tori. No I’m not!
I turned and opened the door
Mom: Beck! Don’t you dare walk out on me!
I ignored her and walked out, banging the door angrily
I went straight to my room, I know my face would be red with anger so I decided to wash up and try to steady myself before I go downstairs. As long as Tori is concerned, I’m not leaving this relationship. Not because of my mom, not because of her damn reasons, not because of anything!
I entered the bathroom and turned on the tap, I poured water on my face and breathed in and out
I dried my face then went downstairs
Tori: hey, what took you so long?
She was sitting on the couch so I sat beside her and took her hand
Me: mom was having migraine so I had to get her medications and attend to her
Tori: oh my! How is she now?
Me: she’s better now
Tori: is she sleeping? I wanna go and see her
Me: uhh, she’s already sleeping. Let’s just go outside okay?
She nodded and I stood up with her. We went outside and sat on the facade. She leaned on me and rested her head on my shoulder
She sighed and didn’t say anything more. I looked at her face but I couldn’t read her mind. But she looks disturbed
Me: are you okay baby?
Tori: yes, but I feel like you’re not. Your mood has changed, it’s because of your mom’s health right?
My blood pressure lowered. For a moment there, I thought she heard what mom was telling me. But I don’t think she eavesdropped on us
Me: yeah, but don’t worry. I’ll brighten up now. For you..
I let out a beautiful smile and she smiled too.
Me: sing for me
Tori: what song do you want me to sing?
Me: hmm, on second thought.. Why don’t I sing for you instead?
She sat up
Tori: yes, I wanna hear you sing
Me: hahaha, look at you. You wanna hear the groggiest voice in LA
Me: okay. Listen to the song I have for you. It was written by Andre when we were still in middle school
Tori: okay, I’m listening
I cleared my throat
🎶I don’t wear designer clothes🎶
🎶I don’t go to the finest schools 🎶
🎶but I know… I ain’t no fool baby🎶
🎶I may not.. Be a star🎶
🎶I’m not driving the sickest cars🎶
🎶but I know… I can make you happy baby🎶
🎶I don’t know what you’ve been used to 🎶
🎶never been with a girl like you🎶
🎶but I can give you a love that’s true.. to your heart, not material things🎶
🎶I’ll give you my song🎶
🎶these words.. to you🎶
🎶sing you what I feel.. my soul is true🎶
🎶I don’t have the world, can’t give it to you girl🎶
🎶but all that I can do (all that I can do) 🎶
🎶is give this song to you🎶
I smiled when I finished the song
Me: hmm, I think my voice is getting better
I looked at Tori and my smile gradually died down. She was shedding tears
I pulled her to myself and cuddled her
Did my song touch her?
Well it should, because that was exactly what I wanted her to know.
I don’t have anything materialistic to give her, but she needs to know that she’s with something that I can’t take back and that’s my heart
🔵Mrs Oliver’s POV🔵
I angrily left my room and walked to the living room. I heard Beck singing a love song outside
Me: and when did he start singing?
I scoffed and looked at the couch
There was a very expensive phone on it. It must belong to Tori
She’s carrying a phone that it’s worth is equal to our house and everything in it.
Just a phone.. I wonder how much more of the expensive things she has.
I admired the phone and turned on the screen. Of course it had security.
Just then, it started to ring but luckily, it was on silent. I quickly brought out my phone and took the number that was calling, it was her dad.
I dropped the phone the place it was before and hurried upstairs. I sat on my bed and called the number, it immediately picked up
📲hello Tori, did you get a new sim card? I don’t have this line
📲this isn’t Tori
📲this isn’t Trina either Mark
📲then who are you and how did you get this number because only my daughters have this number
📲you’re speaking with Monika
📲Monika? Excuse me, I don’t know who that is
📲so you’ve forgotten me so easily? After everything we shared? You don’t remember Monika?
📲wait? Monika Oliver?
📲finally you remember
📲oh my God… How did you get my number?
📲we need to see
📲Monika, I’ve already ended things with you. I don’t have anything to see you for
📲your daughter Tori is about to make the greatest mistake of her life. If you love your daughter…. then meet me tonight, 7pm at Continental restaurant. I’ll be waiting for you…
I hung up and dropped my phone on the bed.
Me: I’m sorry Beck if I ruin your happiness with Tori.. But trust me, you’ll get times Two of that happiness if you know what I’m planning for you

Mark Vega’s POV
I sighed and dropped the phone on my bed. What does Monika want with me again?
I met her 20 years ago. Before I got married. She was a sexy secretary to my friend and each time I came to his office, I couldn’t get my eyes off her. One day, I came to see him but he wasn’t in. Monika said I should wait for him since he was to be back in few minutes. She then served me coffee and as she was about to leave, I grabbed her and pinned her to the table. I told her that I couldn’t resist the urge to have her. She begged me, saying she was married. I was adamant about having my way with her when my friend came back. He caught us in that position and I could see the embarrassment on her face
She left the office and I apologized to my friend who was not so surprised. He laughed and said he knew I had eyes for her.
He therefore decided to help me and get her, despite the fact that she was married
🔙 🔙 🔙 flash back 🔙 🔙 🔙
Vin : seriously Mark, if you really want her then just let me fire her
Me: I don’t understand.
Vin: if I fire her on account of what I saw, she’ll feel like you caused it and get angry with you. You’ll try to pacify her and assure her of money and a good life because she’s not buoyant. You can have your way with her in any way you want
Me: are you sure that’s going to work?
Vin: let’s give it a try
I nodded and left the office. Shortly after, Vin texted me that he already fired her. I was so happy, I took her number and called her the next day
📲hello Monika Oliver speaking
📲how are you Monika?
📲who I’m I speaking with?
📲I’m sorry you got fired. I tried to beg him to let you stay but he didn’t listen to me
📲Mr Vega? Gosh! How did you get my number?
📲chill girl, I just wanna help you since I’m the cause of your misfortune
📲and how are you going to do that?
📲can we meet? I have two or more offers for you
The phone was silent for a while
I smiled to myself then gave her the name of the hotel and the room where I was
I lured Monika into my bed that day and gave her lots of money. She was happy and I liked that.
Monika and I kept seeing each other that I became so addicted to her body. We became very intimate and I always gave her money.
The problem between us started when she said she was going to divorce her husband so the both of us could be together without anything holding us back. I didn’t like that idea because I never loved her, I was just in love with her body. I didn’t want to marry her.
I made her forget about the idea of divorce
Trouble broke out between us when she saw an article about my upcoming wedding. She was so angry with me and cut off all ties with me. At first I didn’t care, but few months into my marriage with Veronica I began to miss Monika
I contacted her again and tried to win her back. That was how I started an extra marital affair. I even employed her in my house as the chief maid just so I could have her when my wife was out
Soon Veronica took in, I was so happy. I suddenly felt bad for cheating on her. That day, I decided to do away with Monika for good
Unfortunately, that same day, even before I could tell her, she told me that she was pregnant for me.
I was so surprised and confused as to what to do
I didn’t want Veronica to hear of it at all. I immediately told her to abort the pregnancy
🔙 🔙 🔙 flashback 🔙 🔙 🔙
Monika : what?
Me: just flush out the baby. I don’t want to have anything to do with it
She got really angry and slapped me hardly on the face
Monika: are you crazy? How dare you say such a thing?
Me: what else should I say? Look, just do what will save our asses. This baby cannot stay here, it’s going to bring so much trouble. Your husband wouldn’t be so happy to hear that you’re pregnant for your boss and my wife will be so heartbroken. Besides, she’s pregnant too
Monika : so you’re denying your baby?
Me: I’m not denying. I’m sure the baby is mine, your husband has been away for some time now so I’m the father. But Monika please, get rid of it. I promise I’ll give you enough money and everything you need, as long as we can stop this naughty affair. It’s high time we focused on our families
She began to cry. I felt sorry for her but I couldn’t do anything
Monika : okay.. I’ll.. I’ll abort the pregnancy
I smiled happily. I later gave her huge amounts of money and made sure she had enough
Then I convinced my wife for us to relocate back to America. In less than a week, we were off from Canada and I never saw Monika or heard from her again
Jade West’s POV
I took up my phone and called Andre. I needed him to write a song for me for the horror video clip I’m producing
📲write a scary song for me
📲I’m not repeating what I said
📲I don’t write scary songs
📲meet me tonight at Continental restaurant by 7:30pm
📲but I’ll be…
📲you better be there
I dropped the phone and headed out of the house. Then Emily called me, I picked it up
📲what do you want?
📲hey, is that how to say hello to your favorite cousin?
📲and what makes you think you’re my favorite cousin?
📲Peter can no longer play soccer because of the major fracture he attained when we were just ten years. Because of that, Aunt Alice left LA, just so they could avoid you. Also, Molina, you tied her to a chair and poured glue on her eyes just because she broke your phone.
📲well, she went for surgery and her eyes got fixed
📲but she still can’t see without the use of glasses
📲OK, maybe you’re my favorite cousin
📲good girl, now come over. I’m lonely
📲no, I’m hanging up. Bye
I hung up and walked to the garage, I brought out my car and entered. Then a phone call came in, it was still Emily
📲you’re disturbing my life
📲you know that boy Karie had a crush on. I remember telling you about him. He humiliated her at school today. Can you help us pay him back?
📲do you want some meatballs? Because I’ll buy them when I’m coming over to your house
📲yes! I knew I could count on you
She hung up and I cracked. I’m going to skip school on Monday because I’m going to Emily’s school
I just love bullying stupid boys
Monika Oliver’s POV
It was just few minutes to 7pm. I added the last touch of my red lipstick and picked my purse. I headed out of my room and walked down the stairs. I saw Beck pouring out some drinks into two glass cups.
Immediately he saw me he stopped and stared at me with his mouth open
Me: where is Tori? Has she gone?
Beck: no, she’s in my room
Me: you’re being stubborn aren’t you?
Beck: don’t even go there
I smirked, knowing he’s just trying to be stubborn. But he’s going to break up with her whether he likes it or not
Me: I’m going out
Beck: on a date?
Me: why do you say so?
Beck: mom, I haven’t seen you like this in years
Me: yes, I’m going on a date… with reality
I turned and left the room without looking back. I boarded a taxi and went straight to the restaurant.
I went to a table and ordered for an inexpensive drink while I waited for Mark
Andre Harris’ POV
I dipped my hands into my pockets and walked into the restaurant, I sighted Jade and sighed. I went to the table
Me: good evening… Jade
I pulled out a chair and sat down
Me: you look good.
She smirked evilly
Jade: thank you
Everything about this girl is scary. She must be a villain in the making. And she even looks like Maleficent with her black makeup
Me: so why I’m I here?
Jade: look at these lyrics
She handed me a paper with a song on it
Me: a song?
Jade: it’s not yet a song. I want you to use those words and write a slow song for me
I read through the words and my face puzzled up
Me: where the heck did you get these words from?
Jade: from my personal dictionary of dark words
The waiter came and dropped two glasses of red wine, bowed and left
Jade took hers and offered the other one to me
Me: when do you need it?
Jade: tomorrow morning
Me: what? You mean you want me to write this overnight?.
Jade: I thought you said it doesn’t take you an hour to write a song
Me: this isn’t a song Jade, this is a nightmare tune. If I stay up to form this, I might attend serious therapy for a whole year
Jade: then attend it
Me: please, I’ll write the song tomorrow morning and I’ll give it to you on Monday
Jade: I’ll need it tomorrow so I’ll come over to your house and get it
Jade: no buts… Now drink
I sighed and took the glass
Jade: isn’t that Tori’s dad? I thought he was out of the country
She looked towards the right side of the restaurant, I traced her gaze and it fell on a man wearing a light blue long sleeved office wear and dark pants. He was also with a tie
I looked at the lady sitting opposite him on the same table, she looked really familiar but I couldn’t lay my hands on who exactly it was
Jade: why are you staring at that lady? Is she your mom?
Me: no but.. she looks so familiar
I kept looking at the woman, her face kept ringing a bell until I finally recognized her. I gasped immediately
Me: jeez, that’s Beck’s mom
Jade: that young lady?
Me: she’s not supposed to look that young. No wonder I didn’t recognize her. She’s looking so different and what is she doing with a rich man like Tori’s dad
Jade: and her outfit? It seems like they do business together
Me: trust me Jade, Mrs Oliver has nothing to do with someone of high status. It’s like they are two opposite people
Jade: well, their children are dating. Maybe they came to talk as future in laws
Me: wwhy does it look as if Mr Vega is bewildered?
Jade looked at him
Jade: did she tell him something he wasn’t expecting?
Me: oh my God, his countenance just fell. He looks confused and dejected now
Jade: I don’t think they met because they are future in-laws. They have something up their sleeves
Me: Jade, I think we should leave
Me: nothing, well I’m leaving. Good night
I gulped down a little of the wine and folded the paper. I stoop up and tucked it into my pocket
I went out, making sure that Beck’s mom didn’t see me. I took a taxi and went straight to Beck’s house. I knocked and Tori opened it
Tori: wow Andre, hi
Me: can I come in?
She opened the door well and moved out of the way. I entered inside and she closed it
Me: I hope I’m not interrupting any honeymoon here?
Beck: yes you are. You’re interrupting my honeymoon
I looked up and saw Beck climbing down the stairs
Me: oops, sorry man. But I’m angry with you, how would you get married without telling me.
Tori: oh please help me punish him. I tried hard to have him invite you but he wouldn’t listen
Beck: so what’s up bro?
Me: cool bro. Just wanted to check on you
Beck: let’s go upstairs and have guy talk
Tori: haha, I refuse to be jealous
Me: don’t worry, I won’t keep him for long
Beck pecked her
Beck: I’ll be right back
We went upstairs together while Tori settled down to watch TV
Tori Vega’s POV
I turned on the TV and then I heard a knock. It must be Beck’s mom this time. I walked to the door and opened it
She pushed me away and entered inside
Jade: nice apartment
Tori: it’s really nice
She sat on the couch
Me: let me get you something to drink
I went to the fridge and brought out two soda cans. I gave her one
Jade: where’s Beck?
Me: upstairs with…
Jade: I saw your dad
Me: my dad? He’s in London
Jade: I saw him today, few minutes ago of
Me: are you serious? Where did you see him?
Jade: at a restaurant
Me: maybe he had to come back
My phone rang and it was dad
Me: oh it’s him
I picked it up
📲come home now
📲dad, I’m still staying with Beck. Remember?
📲Tori, come home now
He hung up and I looked at Jade
Me: he wants me to come home and he didn’t sound so good
Jade: maybe there’s a problem somewhere
Me: yeah, maybe
I stood up. Just then, the door opened. It was Beck’s mom
Me: welcome back ma’am
Jade just crossed her arms, looking at her
Beck: where’s Beck?
She looked me over then looked at Jade, she went upstairs without a word
Jade: Tori, let’s go
Me: my bags and…
Jade: I said let’s go.. You’ll get all that later
I sighed and took my phone then followed Jade outside
