Ch. 4Remember

I saw Angel's eyes widen.

"And I'm the father? Great! That's a good news for me." Xian said excitedly and did not sound sarcastic.

"I'm not joking." I said seriously.

"So am I." He replied before I heard his loud smile.

"I'm happy to hear that. I'm excited to have a family with you."

"I'm serious here!" Suddenly I said. It's as if this man doesn't take what I'm saying seriously. I saw Angel slightly surprised when I raised my voice.

"Other man got me pregnant, I'm 4 months pregnant now but I have no plan to say this to him because he's a jerk." As I continued, Xian was still the one talking. His line became quiet so I spoke again.

"Now, tell me ... do you still want me?" I asked him.

"Yeah ... and nothing can change that." I rubbed my forehead. Angel, on the other hand, just blinked as he watched me.

"You're out of your mind."

"I know." I sighed and looked where.

"Look, you have all the rights to stop this shit. There are lots of girls out there, who's more better than me. You look so rich, handsome, kind, and gentleman. Therefore, we're not compatible to each other. You don't deserve me. "

"But you deserve me." He insisted that I stop.

"You're one of a kind Diane and you got what it takes. Therefore, you deserve a man who can love and take care of you and your baby ... and that man is definitely me."

He imitated me with the word 'therefore'. I fell silent and stared at Angel in amazement. He was confused by what I was up to so he just stared at me.

"I'm not a kid anymore Diane. I'm aware of what I'm doing, I'm aware of the things that I want to get and pursue. So, I really want to have you." I heard Xian say more. I could not answer.

"You heard me? I want you ... to be mine."

“You don’t know me yet. "

"Then let me know about you more. Let me court you Diane." I was shaken. This one is also annoying.

"Is there anything that I can do to make you stop?"

"None." He answered immediately. I sighed angrily.

"Psh! Do what you want then. But I can't promise you anything."

I said and immediately turned off the line. I took the glass filled with water to drink and gulped down my consumption of that man.

"Who is that?" Angel asked after I drank. He took the glass from me again.

"Do you remember Kyla's story to us? Xian Lester?" He thought for a moment before nodding.

"Ah, yes. Is he the one you're talking to?" He asked so I nodded too.

"I thought it was Macky."

"Kyla gave my number to that man, he was obviously picking me up so I immediately told him I was pregnant so he could stop."

"What did he say?"

"She's still going to court me."

"You mean no big deal to him?"

"Do not know." I shrugged.

"Give me a chance. In Kyla's story, she looks kind, then she won't frown at you if it's not serious." said Angel.

"Psh! I really don't want to. Maybe it'll be another problem."

"It's your choice." Angel is really easy to talk to compared to Kyla.

"I just have a question for you Diane." I looked at Angel. I don’t know if he’s serious.

"What's that?"

"Do you still have feelings for Dextar?" I had no reaction.

"Yes. Angry." I say emphatically. She sighed.

"I understand where that's coming from. I mean if you still feel love for him?"

I was deliberately stunned and thoughtful. Three months have passed, but my heart admits that there is still love for him because the pain of what he did is still there.

My mind, on the other hand, was full of hatred for him, obscuring the true feelings I still had for him. But I won't admit it, not even to myself.

"Nothing maybe." I averted my eyes.

"I kept thinking, what if you told him right away that you were pregnant? Will he still cheat?" Annoyed I smiled at the absence.

"Of course. It doesn't depend on whether he fools me or not. If he really wants to do that, he will-whether I'm pregnant or not. Because, he's stupid."

"Have you heard his explanation?" The last time we met came back to my mind.

"Yes, and what he said was so useless. He said he didn't know why it was like that. Stupid!"

"Maybe it's because he doesn't really know or he doesn't really know." Angel insisted so I looked at him confused.

"What do you mean?"

"When we rushed them to the Hotel? The shock that Dextar showed us was mixed with confusion. He also seemed to be excited about what was happening, if he looked at us it was as if he was still wondering what we were up to. It was as if he was even he doesn't know how he got into such a situation. "

Explanation of this. My heart favors what Angel said, because even I myself noticed it in the middle of my tears. I can really say that I was the one who observed Dextar the most because I didn't take my eyes off him that day. But my mind says it's just his show.

I think that's when he realized the mistake he had made so that's how he reacted, not knowing what to say or do. There is no sensible explanation, because the nonsense is still being covered upon even dressed up.

"Do you also remember when you fainted and we rushed you to the hospital?" Angel asked again which made me feel bad.

"M-mm." I nodded.

"He's with us. He made you then." said Angel. I was slightly startled and stared at him.

"If you see Dextar then, it's pitiful to look at him. He was very worried and scared while begging you to wake up. That was the time I wanted to tell him your real situation, but of course I don't want to lead you. Especially that I know you hate him. " He still reports.

I just listened quietly even though I was already affected. It was as if I had seen the scenario Angel was telling. If I'm not mistaken, I heard him crying before I lost consciousness.

"He was also in front of our apartment for a few days. Once again, I saw him sitting in the gutter and just looking up at our apartment." Angel continued.

I looked down and thought of Dextar's appearance when I saw him in such a situation, he looked miserable then. I felt sorry but my anger prevailed. I looked at Angel as he caressed my cheek, he was wiping away the tears I didn’t even realize were dripping.
