"Is it necessary for you to pick her up bridal style dude?" Mono scolded me.
I understand what he's pointing out. Some people might see us and get the wrong idea.
"She's a rookie. Imagine the hate that she'll get once people see the two of you." Raze added.
We're now back at our dorm. Sky and I had to follow because the boys had gone first.
"Raze, stop scolding Seth. Zanaya was really sick. She immediately passed out once her back touches the couch." I looked at Sky, a little grateful for backing me up.
I heard Demo sigh.
"We understand. We're just worried not only for you Seth but for the girl as well. Remember, in our industry, it's always the girl that gets the most hate when people found out that you're dating."
"But we're not dating," I told them. Well, except that we're actually married. I told myself.
"We know, but it seems like you knew each other." Mono looked at me weirdly.
I avoided his eyes. "What are you talking about? How will we know each other?"
As much as I want to tell the boys about it, I can't. I don't want to burden them.
"But you like her" Sky added. His eyebrows raising.
Grey chuckled. "Awwwww! Sethie had grown up!"
I lunged forward to Grey hitting him playfully.
"I am older than you," I told him. The others laugh while they watch us mess around.
Storm remained seated on the corner, not even bothering to open his eyes.
"But I wouldn't blame you, Zanaya looked hot," Sky exclaimed which I return with a glare.
"See!" Sky pointed at me. "Did you see him glare at me?"
"You've fallen really hard, Seth." Demo laughed.
"I did not. She looked like she would faint so I helped her. You all would do the same!" I told them.
"Yep but I'm not sure I'll have the courage to pick her bridal style since we're not close and we like, just met that day or something."
The other guys agreed.
"You should have seen him. He looked like a boyfriend who's taking care of his girl. Ahhhhhhhh"
Again, I glared at Sky who's hugging Grey while they are busy being giddy about what happened earlier.
"Shut it. I don't like the girl okay." I told them.
"If that's what will make you sleep at night Seth, sure."
Sometimes, I hate Mono for being good at catching up.
It's not that I like her, okay. I mean, I hated her before but that was like, a year ago.
When I found out about my arranged marriage, I wasn't really against it. Then I saw her. I knew her then. I knew that she's a trainee in BP Entertainment that will soon debut.
Then I heard some girls, probably her cousins talking about our arranged marriage telling things like how we'll look good together and how we would be the most talk about couple if ever. That's what pissed me off.
I thought she did pull some strings so we can get married but I got confused when she suddenly flipped back at me.
I guess deep inside, I feel like she's not that kind of person but can never trust some people these days.
It was a month after our marriage, I was drunk and I was scrolling on my phone and saw her name save on my contacts.
That's what I saved her name with.
I know it's pathetic of me but I was still pissed off. She made me sleep on the couch. My back was hurting the whole night.
Before I knew it, I have sent a lot of stupid messages on her.
Once I woke up, I've cursed a lot when I realized what I did. But she never replied to my messages though I was sure I saw a notif underneath that shows that she read it.
I almost got into big trouble with Raze after he heard me cursing nonstop.
And then I saw her in Serene Musics.
Her looks have changed. Gone were the cute cheeks that she originally has. She got thinner but her facial features got sharper.
She looks hot. That's how I would describe her.
And yes, she still hated me.
I wouldn't tell her but I am very proud of what she had become.
Their songs had been a hit and, me and the boys can really see how talented they are.
She did really well earlier. She was sick but she still nailed the performance.
Once her groupmates arrived, Sky and I immediately left after we bid our goodbye.
I was sure that her members were a little confused when they saw us but decided not to ask questions and tend to Zanaya first.
I pulled my phone and decided if I would text her or not.
But curiosity gets through me so I decided to text her anyway.
First, I looked around to make sure that the boys weren't looking at me.
Me: Hey, how are you feeling?
I was a little nervous. I'm not really sure if she would reply.
Still no response.
"Look, guys, Zanaya is trending."
I looked up and saw Grey showing his phone with the others.
I checked my phone and soon, I saw what Grey was talking about. A hashtag was dedicated to her.
I check the links and saw that the three other girls did a live and Zanaya wasn't with them.
Maybe she's really not feeling so well.
I decided to check some other things on social media but my mind is still caught up with what happened to her.
What? She's with her members. They will surely take care of her right?
I close my eyes to try to relax but soon, images of sick Zanaya keep flashing before my eyes.
"Aissst!" I sigh in frustration.
"Yah, what's wrong?" Demo asked while he sits beside me.
I wish I can tell you.
"Nothing. It's just that my head is starting to feel dizzy."
"Oh really? Then take a rest Seth." he added.
I stood up from my seat and made my way towards my room. But an idea flashed through my mind.
