- DARYL’s POV
- "When I was seventeen, I shifted to new school, there only I met Kim and Mike. Due to everything, I wasn't the one to talk much but they both especially Kim showed me that what friendship meant. As time passed by, I became more attached to them. It felt good to at least have someone by my side after the death of Ivy. I started forgetting about my pain through them. Then one day, Kim introduced her sister to me. Mila her name was Mila. I took an instant liking in her, just as a friend. She used to chatter non stop, I liked her company. After graduating from high school, our contact broke. I wanted money, at that time I thought that money was the only way to become powerful. I thought that comfort will give me peace, but I was wrong. Peace.... I never found until you came, Laura."
- "One night, my life took a sudden change. I was drunk and so was Mila. We had met after years, so we were just remembering old times and I don't know next how we ended up sleeping together. When Mila informed me that she was pregnant and the child was mine, for a minute I was scared but then the mere thought about being father was enough for me to accept that child. I had always thought that I will never treat my child like my father did to me but you know what, I ended up being worse than him. My father was the one to kill my spirit, but I became the one to kill my own child because I was selfish, selfish enough to not think about Mila’s happiness. For me Mila was only like a friend, she was my responsibility, she was the mother of my child but I never saw her, romantically. Even after that night, I never had any physical contact with her. But just like anything good can never happen to me, my happiness became short lived. After few months of living together in same house but in different rooms, I don't know how Mila started feeling something about me. She told me that she was in love with me. Just one word about love and I became restless. I was always scared of love. Tell me Laura, how I was supposed to love someone when whole my life I'd seen nothing but hatred in the eyes of my own family?"
