Chapter 1: Betrayal's sting
In the morning, we greeted the room with a symphony of golden sunlight, embellishing the space with a stunning waterfall of mild rays flowing through the window. Its warmth kissed every area, pouring life into its surroundings. The place felt alive, as though infused with magical energy that transformed it into a magnificent refuge.
In this peaceful atmosphere, Vivian Young appeared, a vision of brilliant beauty. Her delicate body was enhanced by the flowing silk robe, which mimicked her beautiful motions. She approached the mirror, and her eyes met the reflection of her wide smile, which grew with each passing second - an embodiment of pure happiness. She remembered everything that had happened. It had only been the night before that Brian Evans, the man she had loved for three years, had dropped to one knee before her, his voice filled with unshakable devotion as he whispered those enchanting words, "Would you marry me?" Without hesitation, she embraced him, embracing his proposal with all her heart.
In the mirror, Vivian glanced at the dazzling ring gracing her slim finger. It glittered with a brilliance matching the early sun, creating stunning reflections around the room. The circle symbolizes their eternal vows, a monument to their love.
However, doubts still lingered among Vivian's friends, who believed that getting married at twenty-four was merely a passing fantasy. Vivian herself once entertained those beliefs until Brian Evans entered her life.
Brian seemed to have unlocked the deepest recesses of her heart. He possessed a peculiar ability to anticipate her desires and whisk her away to the places she longed to visit. In times of hardship, he was her steadfast rock and unwavering support. Indeed, he was the epitome of the perfect boyfriend.
Whispers often reached Vivian's ears, warning her about Brian's reputation as a charming rogue. At times, she felt a fleeting sense of unease in their relationship. Yet, everything changed when he went down on one knee, his eyes gleaming with devotion. Despite a momentary hesitation, she consented, convinced that Brian was her one true love. With unwavering assurance, she affirmed her decision, trusting in the depths of her heart.
But then, everything took a sudden turn.
A revelation loomed on the horizon.
Since their college days, Emma Hale, Vivian's closest friend and confidante, has requested a meeting at a nearby café. Their encounters had become infrequent since Vivian's relationship with Brian blossomed, not due to any negligence on her part but because Emma's demeanor had taken an unforeseen turn. Vivian often pondered the reasons, believing that Emma's struggles at work were to blame.
As they sat opposite each other, a subtle tension colored their once unbreakable friendship. Emma's eyes, typically warm and friendly, now bore an icy gaze as if harboring an evil secret.
"What troubles you, my dear friend?" Vivian asked with genuine concern in her voice.
Emma smirked, her lips curling up with a hint of disdain, her gaze fixated on the sparkling ring on Vivian's finger. How could Vivian bask in such happiness? Emma believed she alone deserved that exhilarating feeling. And today, she swore to strip it all away from Vivian.
"So, Brian proposed to you, didn't he?" Emma's voice dripped with a mix of mockery and delight.
"Yes, he did! We're getting married in two months," Vivian declared, her voice tinged with pride. She had a feeling Emma sought her out to discuss her engagement.
Emma's laughter echoed in the air, a bitter tone laced with malicious amusement.
"I'm afraid that won't happen!" Emma said, reveling in her satisfaction.
"What do you mean? I don't understand," Vivian replied, her discomfort growing with each moment.
Without warning, Emma produced a stack of papers and slammed them forcefully on the table in front of Vivian.
"Search for yourself, and perhaps you'll finally understand," Emma chuckled, her smile carrying cruelty that sent shivers down Vivian's spine.
Vivian's eyes widened as she saw the contents of the papers—a series of pregnancy test results, all belonging to Emma.
"You're pregnant?" Vivian gasped, stunned by this revelation. She struggled to comprehend the implications behind Emma's words.
"Yes, and I have an important announcement for you, my dear Vivian. The father of my child is none other than Brian Evans."
"You must be joking!" Vivian exclaimed, her bewildered gaze fixed on Emma. She couldn't fathom the words she had just heard. Brian could never do something like that.
"Oh, my dear Vivian, everything I said is true! You were simply too naive to see it!" Emma's words rang out with a mix of satisfaction and cruelty.
Emma continued to present Vivian with a series of incriminating photos, capturing her and Brian in intimate embraces.
Vivian felt her heart shatter as she looked at the graphic images that depicted a betrayal she had never understood.
Emma revealed in the visible pain on Vivian's face, relishing the opportunity to crush the spirit of this poor girl.
But Vivian, refusing to succumb to her enemy, locked eyes with Emma.
"You despicable betrayer!" Vivian's voice echoed through the still air of the café. Gripping her glass tightly, she threw it straight at Emma's face.
Without looking back, Vivian strode out of the café, her body trembling with a potent mix of anger and sadness. She fought back tears, refusing to give her adversary the satisfaction of witnessing her weakness. Her hands clenched into fists, the pressure so intense that it drew blood, yet she persisted, determined to appear composed until she reached the sanctity of her home.
As Vivian closed the door behind her, she crumpled to the floor, the weight of shattered dreams pressing down on her. Tears streamed freely from the corners of her eyes.
With a choked voice of despair, she let out a piercing scream. The happiness she had shared with Brian was an illusion, a facade created by his deception. His tender affections, once so genuine, were merely a mask. The pain in Vivian's heart intensified as she thought about the source of this betrayal-Emma, her closest friend.
How could they both treat her with such callous disregard?
For hours, Vivian cried, clutching onto the remnants of her shattered love before summoning the strength to let them go. She tore the photos into pieces and threw them in the trash, abandoning the memories that once brought her joy. Now they were painful reminders of the one who had inflicted the most profound wounds on her soul.
"Fool! I am such a fool!" she exclaimed, her voice echoing through the empty rooms of her house.
Then, just as she reached the depths of her anguish, her phone emitted a loud sound. Vivian glanced at the screen, her eyes widening in disbelief. Brian's name shone brightly, pleading for her attention. For a fleeting moment, she wanted to answer and hold onto what remained of their love. But now she knew better. The one who had shattered her heart was no longer worthy of even a second's consideration.
"I'm sorry; it's all my fault. Please give me another chance!" Brian's plea appeared on the screen.
Vivian chuckled bitterly as she read the message. How could he think that she would even consider forgiving him? Had he not felt the consequences of his actions? She would not become a weak and forgiving lover, unthinkingly accepting his transgressions.
"He is nothing but a deceitful liar! He never loved me!" Vivian shouted, her voice resounding with pain and defiance.
Her gaze returned to the ring, once a symbol of promised happiness but now a symbol of heartache. With determination in her eyes, she removed the ring from her finger, deliberately placing it on the table. It would be her weapon, a tool she would use to confront his deceptive facade.
As she contemplated her next move, her resolve grew more pungent, her heart pounding with the flames of a scorned woman.
Chapter 2: Traitor
Vivian woke up, her eyes widening as she took in the sterile white ceiling. It slowly dawned on her that she was in a hospital.
"What's going on?" Vivian wondered aloud.
She could only recall feeling exhausted and gradually losing consciousness. But who had brought her to the hospital?
A familiar face entered the room, approaching Vivian's bedside. It was Kristen Gomez, her childhood best friend, who had been studying abroad in France.
Vivian was surprised to see Kristen standing there. Kristen chuckled at Vivian's astonished expression.
"You're surprised, aren't you? I arrived this morning," she said.
Kristen explained that as soon as she landed at the airport, she rushed to Vivian's house. To her dismay, she found Vivian lying motionless on the floor and immediately called for an ambulance.
"How long are you planning to stay?" Vivian asked.
"I'll be here for a week
