- 96.9K words
Nina Jonas is a 27 year-old supermodel engaged to her college sweetheart, Justin Walters who is the heir to the multi-billionaire corporation, W Corps. She had a career she loved and a man who doted upon her and loved her to bits. She had always thought it would keep on going this way but to Nina's shock, less than a year to their wedding, a woman comes to her and claimed to be pregnant with Justin's child! With some expectation in her heart for him to deny the allegation, she confronts him but when he readily admits to having hidden it from her even though he supposedly had a good reason to, she made up her mind to break up with him even at his vehement refusal leaving the both of them heartbroken. But later, a comprehensive investigation into the events surrounding the affair reveals a conspiracy directed at separating the two lovebirds…
*Inside Justin's apartment*
"You did what?", Nina asked incredulously.
"Nina… Listen to me… I didn't know anything. I can swear it on my life. Justin said as he tried to hug her.
"Don't touch me! Take your dirty hands off me! It disgusts me just to think that these same hands touched another woman intimately,” She angrily threw his hands off.
"Nina…", Justin called, sounding pained.
In response, Nina stood up from the sofa, calmly turning back to look down at Justin from the elevated height.
Obviouly, she was now back to the ice queen that everyone were usually familiar with and for some, he instantly had a bad premonition that whatever she was going to say next would definitely be something that he didn't want to hear or listen to.
"Jay, I think we need a break." She dropped what was nothing short of a bombshell, and even though he had expected her to say something he wouldn't like but still… Not this!
"…Wait… What???.. A break?!.. You probably mean a break-up, right? ! After blanking out for a minute on hearing the hateful words she spoke, he stood up in anger and stammered out.
"I said I know absolutely nothing! All I did was just to have a few drinks with my business partners at a bar and the next thing I knew was waking up the next day with with a strange woman by my side. I am not even sure if anything happened! Why can't you for God's sake understand that, huh?" He lashed out.
"You don't understand, do you?" However, Nina didn't react much to his words and only waited for him to finish speaking before asking softly while staring at him directly in the eyes and then said word for word.
"What I am finding hard to accept is the fact that MY man slept with another woman, even if he knew nothing! It somehow makes me feel dirty!"
"Nina, you don't mean it, right?" On realising the seriousness of this issue, Justin still asked as he looked pleadingly at her though when he had heard her say the word 'dirty', a flash of hurt appeared in his eyes.
One wouldn't know how his subordinates and business partners would feel when they see this proud and arrogant man on usual days begging a woman humbly. But how could they understand the depth of his love for the woman in front of him, not to talk of begging, he would do so much more, after all, he was the one in the wrong here. He didn't care about his pride if it could make her stay, but from the looks of it, he didn't think it could make any difference...
"You know me, Jay. I am a clean and possessive freak! For me, our relationship automatically came to end when you touched another woman and since it has come that, the only thing left for me to is to breakup with you. And after today we would no longer be related in any way." She stated with deep chilliness in her tone but at the same time tried very hard to hide the quiver in her voice when she mentioned breaking up with him.
"No! You can't do this, Nina. You just can't abandon us. I love you and cannot live without you, Nina and you know it!" The moment he heard Nina say those unfeeling words, Justin completely panicked and grabbed Nina's arms tightly making her wince in pain. He hurriedly let go of her and looked at her nervously while apologizing.
"I am sorry! I really didn't mean to hurt you, baby. I am... was just in a hurry."
"But you must be joking right, Nina? We can't break up, especially not when there is just less than a year before our big day! We had plans, baby! Our honeymoon, the children names and I even bought our house already. Nina, I love you and want to spend the rest of my life with you, only you!" He continued saying with deep emotion as he lightly held her hand hoping he could move her heart even just a little bit.
Indeed, Nina's expression wavered a little but before he could fully rejoice, her face turned cold again and she unceremoniously threw off his hand and looked at him indifferently.
"You should have thought about that before you got drunk and left yourself at the mercy of others."
Justin knew right then and there that there was no longer a turning back. He and Nina would never go back to how they were even if they got back together. He had ruined it all for them even though to be honest, he wasn't exactly sure how he had done that.
"Stop it, Justin! You knew me better than anyone. You should have guessed the result when you decided to hide it from me. Three months! YOU lied to me for three frigging' good months! And I had to find out only when that little bit*h decided to come looking for me!”
Nina inhaled deeply to stop herself from getting agitated and completely losing control of her emotions.
"WE ARE OVER! We were from the moment you slept with that woman so you can forget about whatever wedding you have in mind or maybe not, I forgot you still have a ready substitute you can hold a wedding with!"
"Nina… How could you say that I should hold a wedding with that woman?!! Can't you give me another chance? Give US another chance. I need you, baby, I do.”
Nina asked with incredulity written all over her face. It was as if she had heard something very ridiculous.
"You want another chance?! But I think you forgot one thing... That b*tch is pregnant... impregnated by you." She stated calmly while pointing indifferently at his chest to make sure she got her point across properly.
"So there is NO second chance! There was never one from the minute you slept with her right to when you decided to hide it from me and then to the moment I found out."
He became speechless because he knew she was saying the truth after all he was most familiar with the kind of person she was. Which was exactly the reason why he hid it from her in the first place. It definitely had not been because he was guilty as charged. If only he had known earlier that hiding it from her would have led into a much bigger problem, he would have come clean to her right in the beginning.
But could he have predicted that an incident he had thought nothing of would have separated him from his beloved? He just didn't know who it was that scheming against him. If anyone tells him that nobody was messing with him, he really wouldn't believe it because why else would that stupid model who he had already warned suddenly go to meet Nina and talk nonsense?
His eyes narrowed as a cold glint flashed in them thinking to himself, "You better not let me find out whoever you are or else…"
The thoughts in his head seemed to have taken a long time but in reality, it happened in seconds. After which he gave Nina his full attention and opened his mouth to say something.
However, Nina gave him no chance to say anything as she already turned towards the door and walked out right out leaving behind her faint words.
