CHAPTER 2

  • (Leysa's POV)
  • "Your wedding is tomorrow, sis. Are you happy?" my older sister Diana asked me while combing my hair, because we are now here in the room reserved for me in one of the islands owned by Fred, Diana's husband. My wedding is tomorrow and it will be held by the sea as the sun goes down, well it's my dream beach wedding with my loving long time boyfriend, Daniel Apolonio.
  • I smiled sweetly to her when our eyes met in the mirror in front of us.
  • “Yes, I am so happy. You know that I love Dan so much, he is my first boyfriend, and he was the only man who I can see my future with. And the only person that was close to me, who was close to you. And you have so many good things to say about him, that made me decide to marry him, you know what you say is more important than the opinion of others. So I know he really is the one," I answered honestly to her with a smile posted on my lips.
  • I noticed that my sister's face suddenly became anxious, but she eventually smiled that's why I just ignored what I saw.
  • “How about you and Frederik, sis? How is your married life?" I asked her. It's been six months since they got married, it's just a private garden wedding - I and Daniel are the only ones who are present to witness their wedding ceremony and a few friends of Diana and Frederik. Unlike my wedding tomorrow, where many guests were invited and my parents are also present to witness the important day of my life. At my sister's wedding, our parents and even her husband’s parents were not present because they were all busy with handling our family businesses. Oh well, the important thing is that they are already married and happy.
  • “Ah, we got along just fine, I feel secured and loved by him, which was a good sign for a happy marriage. Because I love him so much, Ysa-- more than how much I love myself that’s why I definitely cannot handle it when one day i’ll suddenly lose him,” Diana answered that made me a little nervous because even though how many times I tried to refused it to myself, I also sometimes fantasized about me and Fred, together in a room doing something, something sexy and hot. He is so handsome that I can’t help to not stop thinking about it. Well, I think there is no wrong about it because it's only on my fantasies, It never crossed my mind to actually seduced him and do it; I still love my fiance more than anyone else. And it was just a simple short-term attraction to my brother-in-law, nothing more, nothing less.
  • “Don’t worry, sis. Frederik will never leave you, he will not trade you for someone else, alright? So you better go back to your room, I am sure your husband is already looking for you.” I smilingly said to her.
  • She is about to turn her back at me and leave my room, when she looked back at my direction and said,
  • “Don’t get out of your room tonight, just sleep early and have a beauty rest because tomorrow is your big day, you should be the most beautiful bride, okay. And always remember, I love you so much."
  • And I just smiled at her and nodded as a response.
  • *****************************************************
  • I was blown away by the knock I could hear from outside my door. I looked at the time on my cellphone’s screen and it was eight o'clock in the evening. I got up and approached the door to open the person who was knocking from outside. Maybe it's Dan, because he hasn't called or texted me the whole day, so maybe he just want to pay a visit ‘cause he already misses me even though we were forbidden to meet until tomorrow, and I felt a tingling sensation at the thought I have.
  • But I was so disappointed when I opened the door; Frederik’s anxious and uneasy face appeared in front of me, which made me also felt worried.
  • What does my brother-in-law doing here, outside my room-- in front of me?
  • "Oh Fred, what are you doing here? What’s wrong, it’s already late at night." I immediately asked him.
  • "Is your sister Diana here?" Curious and wondering what’s really happening, I still shook my head in response.
  • "But did she pass by here awhile ago?" he asked again.
  • "Yes, we were just together this afternoon, around 3 pm. Why Fred? Is my sister gone missing?" I asked him again worriedly, even though I already knew the answer based on his reaction.
  • "3 pm? But I haven't seen her after our family lunch, Leys. Where could she ever be at this moment of time?"
  • Huh?
  • "But I told Diana earlier to go back to your room because you might be looking for her. Who else know that my sister is maybe missing?" I replied to him, because I am also worried. It was almost five hours ago when I last saw her.
  • "You are the first one I went to, Leys. Because you are the only person I remembered that with Diana earlier," he replied with a worried tone and a terrified look on his handsome face.
  • Frederik and I just decided not to let our other relatives know that my sister was missing and we would just work together to find her, immediately.
