Chapter 3

  • Stacey's p.o.v
  • I sat on my bed, in my room while Becky walked back and forth.
  • "Will, you at least look at me?" I asked Softly.
  • She stopped moving and looked at me.
  • "What have you done Stacey?" She yelled on top of her voice.
  • "Keep your voice down," I answered. 
  • "No, take him to  the mental institution or the damn clinic now!" She screamed.
  • "No I won't, I gave the doctor my word, I am going to take care of him no matter what," I answered.
  • "What?" she asked.
  • "I feel responsible and guilty for hitting him with my car, I  put him in that ward, to begin with," I answered seriously.
  • "Yes and you paid for his expenses, he's now okay so let him go," she said 
  • with emphasis.
  • "I can't just send him away, he will be all alone in the streets, I'm sure of it," I answered sadly.
  • "Then send him to a stupid mental institution where he will meet people of his kind, there he won't be alone I promise," she answered loudly.
  • "I will make it my responsibility to take care of  him until his family shows up and that's it!" I yelled with emphasis.
  • "That's your problem, Stacey, you are so fucking stubborn," she said then walked out of my room.
  • I brushed my hand through my hair and sighed.
  • It had been a long time since we argued like this, the last time was in college and it was over a damn man, the fucker was a cheater who was sleeping with Becky but had a thing for me, the argument almost made us part ways but luckily we chose to see past that. Every time we argued it was on phone and over small issues, never did we argue so much and face to face. 
  • I really wanted to send the man away but I couldn't, my conscious wouldn't let me, after all, it was all my fault.
  • I looked at the door when it opened, the man walked in while chewing on the shoe which was in his hand.
  • "I brought you coffee," he said with a smile while handing me the shoe.
  • I quickly stood upright and took a few steps closer to him in shock.
  • "Did you just say something sane?" I asked.
  • "Tea," he whispered then jumped up and down.
  • Yep, it was official, I was losing my mind in just two days.
  • "Hey I was wondering, You just can't be called you or prince, it doesn't really suit you, how about I give you another name?" I asked Softly.
  • "Name, name," he said over and over.
  • "How about I name you Lewis, I hope I don't sound rude but Lewis is a hot American actor I adore, you have his height that's why I thought of it," I said while he laughed and clapped.
  • "Then Lewis it is," I whispered with a smile.
  • "Lewis," he said then pointed at me.
  • "No, you are Lewis and I am Stacey," I answered.
  • "Lewis," he said then pointed at me again.
  • "No, Stacey," I said loudly.
  • "Stacey," he whispered with a smile across his face.
  • He faced the ground then looked at me sadly.
  • "Stacey," he whispered.
  • I lifted my hand to touch his cheek but stopped when I heard the door downstairs being opened.
  • I quickly rushed out of the room and went downstairs.
  • "It's just me boss, don't be alarmed," Lizzy my maid said with a smile.
  • "Oh, it's good that you are here," I answered.
  • "Is there a problem?" She asked while looking around.
  • "No, I just wanted you to meet someone," I answered calmly.
  • "Who?" She asked.
  • "Come with me," I answered then Walked upstairs with her behind me.
  • I opened my bedroom door and walked in, Lewis was facing the wall while talking to it.
  • "Uhh boss, have you finally decided to take Madam Becky's advice of dating?" She asked happily.
  • "No," I answered in a low tone.
  • I understood why she thought that, although Lewis still had medium hair and short beard he looked clean and normal at first glance.
  • "Then who is he and why is he in your room?" She asked in a whisper.
  • "This here is Lewis, he is a stranger I accidentally hit with my car, he was recently in a ward and he has no family to take care of him, from today onwards he will be staying with me until I figure out something," I said.
  • Lewis turned and looked at us, he moved closer and extended his hand to Lizzy shocking me. Lizzy smiled and took it, before she could say a word Lewis leaned in and bit her hand earning a loud screamed from her.
  • I quickly pushed him aside, he stumbled a bit but balanced, Lizzy looked at me with tears In her eyes.
  • "What the hell is wrong with him!" She screamed at me angrily for the first time.
  • "I'm sorry, he didn't mean it, he has never done this to anyone, please go to the clinic as soon as possible," I answered loudly.
  • "Does he have something against me?" She asked with a glare.
  • "No," I answered quickly.
  • "Stacey mine," he said seriously.
  • I looked at him then frowned.
  • "So what, just because you are dating her you think you have a right to bite me, huh sick bastard!" She yelled on top of her voice.
  • "Lizzy stop, please go and see a doctor, I will explain everything to you, please, I know that you are upset and in pain," I said loudly.
  • She looked at Lewis then turned and walked out of the room.
  • "And you that was bad, you don't get to bite people!" I yelled.
  • He flinched then walked to the Corner and sat down with his back towards me, I didn't know what to make out of the situation, Lewis at times acted mad and crazy, but now he was just acting like a jealous kid. I felt bad for scolding him but he needed to know that biting someone was wrong.
  • "Stacey," he called in a whisper.
  • "No, you did something wrong, so you have to stay right there and think about your bad behavior," I answered then walked out of the room.
  • I knew it was wrong of me to treat him like a little boy but he wasn't giving me much of a choice, I didn't want Lizzy to think of him as a dangerous man I was keeping, to me he seemed lost, lonely and fragile despite having a tall height and huge attractive built, what he needed was time to remember his family.
