Chapter 4 Heartbreaks

  • The text message:
  • ‘I am sorry. Forget about the marriage, it will never happen
  • in this lifetime. I cannot go on with this relationship anymore. Let’s end this
  • relationship here. I wish you happiness in the future. I will appreciate if you
  • will not bother me anymore. Good Bye. - Jason.’
  • She stopped trying to grasp her breath but there’s no air.
  • It’s like the presence of oxygen inside her body was nowhere to found.
  • In an instant, she felt like walking right into a booby-trap
  • and got blown to smithereens.
  • She must be dreaming. This is not true! Her tears finally
  • came flowing like rain drops. She couldn’t help crying. Her heart was stabbed
  • like a million times. It’s bleeding. It ached so much.
  • She just wished to stop the pain. She just wished to end it
  • right away.
  • She wanted to shout. She wanted to cry. ‘Why all things
  • happening to her? Why now? Why me?’ So many questions in her mind but the
  • answers were to no avail.
  • Her knees gave up to the ground. Holding her phone near her
  • heart, Arabella wailed.
  • She wailed her wretched life.
  • She kneeled off wailing.
  • “Oh my God! What happen?” Farrah snapped out from her sleep.
  • She immediately ran to Arabella kneeling on the floor weeping.
  • She embraced her and tapped her shoulder thoroughly.
  • “Tell me what happened.” Farrah didn’t know what to do. She
  • didn’t know what happened.
  • “Is this have to do with your parents again? Come on! Talk
  • to me!” Farrah kept on asking but the answers were not there.
  • Arabella was still in a daze. She could feel her head was so
  • heavy like it’s very big. Her body was shaking. Her eyes were swollen. She felt
  • dizzy.
  • If she could just take
  • out her heart and bury it to the ground, she would definitely do it, if it’s
  • the only way to stop her heart from beating and feel the pain.
  • In a split second, Arabella collapsed on the floor. She
  • tried to wake up from her unconscious state, but she couldn’t see anyone. She
  • cannot move her body. The only thing is that she could hear someone calling her
  • name in the air.
  • She lost her consciousness completely.
  • In her black out state, she saw Jason and herself holding
  • each other hand. Smiling with each other with the purest sincerity in their
  • eyes.
  • Jason was wearing a black suit tuxedo. He was so handsome.
  • His tall physique and well-built body bring justice to his clothes. By just
  • looking at him, he brings joy to every girl’s heart including hers.
  • He lifted her right
  • hand and brought it to touch his lips. He kissed her hand. She could see the
  • crowd cheering at them and saw familiar faces smiling and other girls couldn’t
  • hide their envious faces while watching them.
  • Of course, she understands those girls. With Jason, the
  • rich, powerful and good-looking CEO of Hansen Group by her side it always
  • happens.
  • ‘Hello?’ she already got the memo a long time ago. In short,
  • she was used to it.
  • On the side note, one
  • can say that Arabella is the perfect match for Jason.
  • She is the total definition of the ‘goddess of beauty’. Her height
  • and curves were so striking that every man would like to touch. She has a
  • flawless snow-white skin and eyes with full of purity and innocence.
  • She is the epitome of elegance and true beauty.
  • Whenever they were together, they are always the center of
  • attraction. They look so good together.
  • They are more far good looking than those most famous
  • celebrity couples on TV.
  • In her dream, she was wearing a white long gown with
  • precious diamonds embroidered on it. It fits perfectly on her curves.
  • One fine day. They held their wedding in a grand cozy
  • garden. All their loves are present.
  • She saw her parents there waving at her. She also Jason’s
  • parents waving at them. She saw her best friend, Farrah wearing a sincere smile
  • waving at them too.
  • They continued walking on a red-carpet hand in hand. Smiling
  • and waving to the crown. Looking in-love with each other.
  • Until one girl stood up from the crowd and grabbed Jason
  • away from her.
  • She hardened her grip on his hand.
  • There is no way on earth she will let go of him, but Jason
  • looked at him with a serious hint on her eyes “Let go! I am going with her.”
  • Then Jason squeezed her hand to loosen her grip and free him.
  • Together Jason and the woman disappeared in a jiffy holding
  • each other hand.
  • “Jason! Jason! Jason!” she screamed out loud expecting Jason
  • will turn his back but he never will.
  • Tears kept on flowing from her eyes.
  • She couldn’t stand the pain. It is just too much.
  • “Hey! Wake up! Wake up!” Farrah Fin shouted her name while
  • stroking heavily on her shoulder.
  • Farrah was alarmed by her crying and sobbing while sleeping.
  • She already knew that her best friend was caught on her dream.
  • Arabella slowly opened her eyes. A strange room received her
  • eyes.
  • She was lying on the bed with Farrah on her side.
  • That moment she knew that she was on the hospital.
  • “What happened? Why Am I here?” she asked worriedly asked.
  • She felt very dizzy and thirsty. Her eyes were swollen from crying.
  • She felt very numb not bothering to move at all.
  • “You collapsed in my room. I am so worried. I don’t know
  • what to do that is why I brought you here.” Said Farrah. “Do you know how
  • worried I am?” She continued while letting out a heavy sighed.
  • “I’m sorry. I was so worried about you. I called your
  • parents but their butler said your mom went on a vacation abroad and your
  • father was also on a business trip.” Farrah explained looking at her worriedly.
  • Hearing the words of Farrah, she remembered the pain again
  • and how she’s being unfortunate of her parents and how Jason dumped her just
  • like that. Her grief increased to the highest point. If she could just end up
  • her life, she would do it just to get rid of the pain.
  • ‘But no!’ ‘There is still Farrah. I will never waste my life
  • just for those unworthy people.’ She thought while firmly tighten her fist.
  • “I also called Jason.” She paused assessing Arabella’s face
  • if she will continue with her report.
  • Arabella was just silent for a while and upon hearing the
  • name of her boyfriend turned to be his ex-boyfriend a while ago she raised her
  • head and look at Farrah giving a sign to continue talking with a hint of some
  • good expectation on her eyes.
  • Farrah lowered her head and avoid her gaze. Afraid of her
  • friend’s reaction after the revelation.
  • “Jason answered my call with a cold voice.” She paused
  • again. With a brittle voice she added “He wanted me to pass a message to you.”
  • Farrah was nervous to continue but she used up her courage left to say the
  • message to Arabella. “He said, stop bothering him. He doesn’t care about you
  • anymore.” Farrah cleared her throat after she finished her words.
  • Farrah felt pity to her best friend. If she could share her
  • burden, she will, just to make her face lighten up a little bit. She hugged
  • Arabella. She could feel the heavy sorrow of her best friend but she was very
  • helpless right now. All she could do is to be with her side.
  • Farrah expecting Arabella to weep again after passing the
  • message from her boyfriend but to her surprise, she didn’t cry. She didn’t even
  • move an inch. Her gaze landed on the wall while caught in a deep thinking.
  • Arabella just stared the white wall. ‘The person she loved
  • the most is aloof to her now.’ ‘The parents once her strong pillar doesn’t care
  • for her anymore.’ These two thoughts were always popping in her mind.
  • ‘Relax self. If this is the case. I will give them what they
  • want.’
  • ‘I can do this!’
  • ‘If they don’t want
  • me anymore, I will disappear for good.’
  • ‘I don’t want them!’
  • ‘They are all unworthy!’
  • ‘I will stop right
  • here. Right now.’
  • ‘I want to live my life the way I want it.
  • ‘Fuck you all!’
  • Her train of thoughts gushing speedily never indicating a
  • sign of stopping.
  • A moment of silence past.
  • “Farrah, thank you for everything you have done but I want
  • to be released her as soon as possible. I am not sick. Okay?” She smiled at her
  • friend but her eyes were full of madness.
  • She knew her friend was worried about her that is why even in
  • her situation she managed to smile at her and acted jokingly.
  • “Are you sure you are okay now?” Farrah wanted to hear her
  • confirmation for her to process the release papers as her guardian.
  • “Oh, come on! You know me. I’m strong! This is just a
  • heart-break, I will get over it soon.” “Don’t worry, okay?” All she wanted to
  • do is to pacify her friend. This is her problem she must face it alone without disturbing
  • his best friend’s life.
  • “Okay then, let’s go home tomorrow!” Farrah exclaimed,
  • feeling satisfied with her answer.
  • “Hmmm… I don’t want to stay in your villa. It’s not that I
  • want to stay with you but I want to prove to them that I can have a life
  • without them. I just want to rent a simple apartment where I can stay. Please
  • don’t let anyone tell that we have a contact with each other. If they want me
  • disappear, I will disappear completely. They will not feel my presence at all.”
  • She firmly explained to her friend with a hint of strong will in her eyes.
  • “Okay, I will support you on that. I know you were hurt so
  • deeply. I will be here for you. I will keep you secret, okay?” Farrah as
  • supported friend as she is. “Tomorrow, will look together for a new apartment.
  • Okay?’ she added.
  • Arabella nodded as a sign of approval.
  • She couldn’t feel anything right now. It seems that her
  • sadness turned into madness in an instant. She is determined to change her
  • life.
  • Love, Family affection, all disappeared in just a wink. Her
  • body seemed to have run out of strength. Her body slowly adapted her present
  • state.
  • She would omit those people who doesn’t want her.
  • She would start a life different from what her parents
  • wanted.
  • She would do whatever she wants freely.
  • This is her life now. Starting tomorrow she would change
  • everything.
  • And as for Jason, ‘Damn him!’ he will not let him hurt her
  • anymore.
  • ‘You will be no longer part of my life!’ She thought with firm
  • courage to overcome him.
  • On the next day, they visit her new apartment. This was made
  • easy by Farrah’s secretary.
  • This is a studio apartment just right for her requirement.
  • The apartment is not so small not so big with two windows and white paint covered
  • the whole interior. It is fully furnished.
  • She was very satisfied of her new place. ‘Her new life
  • begins here.’ She thought.
  • Forgetting the past and move forward is her ultimate goal.
  • The next morning, she applied for a job as a make-up artist.
  • This is one of the things she loves most that is why she took the liberty to
  • applied her skill.
  • After the bad news, here comes the good news. She was in.
  • She got the job!
  • That is how she’s living at the moment.
  • The new Arabella Jones.
  • The girl with new look.
  • The girl with new taste of fashion.
  • The girl living with a carefree life now different from the
  • way she used to be.
  • She’s determined to leave the past behind and all the people
  • who hurt her.
  • She would forget being perfect. She just wanted to have a
  • peaceful life.
