Why should I accompany him?

I woke up to my door bell. I rubbed my eyes and looked at the time, it's four in the morning! What?! Who is it  this early in the morning?

I went to open the main door. When I opened it, I was surprised to see Barry standing there. I rolled my eyes.

"What are you doing here and that too so early in the morning? "I asked irritated.

It's been two weeks since he came to live here as my landlord and this is the first time he came to my house. He only calls whenever he wants anything and I have to take it to his house. But, why is he here today?

He came inside without me inviting him in.
"You are not ready yet? I knew it! I came here to wake you up."he sighed.

"What do you mean?"I asked surprised.
Why do I have to get ready? And what for?

"Go and get ready, I will sit and wait for you here."he said and sat on the couch.

Now, this is irritating! He is not telling me anything and commanding me.

"Will you tell me clearly or not?"I asked irritated.
"You know I am going to Singapore today, right? "He sighed. I nodded in a yes and he continued, "So, my personal cook has to accompany me. How can I go without you? What will I eat?"he said with a smirk.

What??? I have to go with him? I was so happy that I don't have to see his face for a week and now he is telling me that I will be with him. I don't want to go with him!

"But..."I tried to say when he interrupted me,"Look. You don't want your friends to know about your attempt of suicide, do you? "He asked narrowing his eyes.

He is again trying to blackmail me, again! He always does this when I say no to him. He always makes me do what he wants!!

I took a deep breath, "When is the flight?"I asked him trying to calm my anger.
"At seven. You have lot of time to get ready, I was too excited so, I ended up coming this early. Sorry for that."he said trying to hide his embarrassment.
"I will go and get ready. You can go home or wait here."I said and went to my room.
"I will wait here! We will have our breakfast together!"he called out.

I closed my bedroom door and took deep breaths. I have to calm myself down. He is a jerk! I really hate him but I have to do what he says, I don't want Emma and Lily to know what happened that day and why I did that.

I quickly took shower and got ready. I wore my jeans and sleeveless top and a scarf. I put my hair in a high ponytail.

I went out to the kitchen without looking at him. And made black coffee for him and normal coffee for myself and toast for breakfast and kept it on the dinning table.

"Come for breakfast!"I called him.

He came and sat on the opposite chair staring at me. He drank his coffee and ate his toast but never took his away from my face. I really feel kind of shy. He always stares at me but it was the first time that he was sitting so near. I kept my eyes only on my food ignoring direct eye contact with him.

After breakfast, I went and packed my bag.
I came to the living room with my bag and as soon as he saw me he took my bag from me. First I didn't let him but then I just let him take it, I know he won't give up.

"It's six, we should go."I said and was about to go for the door when he grabbed my hand and pulled me towards him. He was so close to me. His eyes staring directly into my eyes. His lips inches away from mine. My heart was beating so fast and loud that I can hear my own heart beat. Then he kept the bag down on the floor and brought his hand to my hair and loosed my locks from the ponytail.

"Now, we are ready to go. I like you with your hair loose."he said and smiled. His smile was breath taking. Then he left my hand and took the bag and went out.

I stood there, not knowing how to react. Why did he do that? I took deep breaths to steady my heart beat. I composed myself and went out.

I locked the door and saw him standing with the passenger's door open. I went and sat in, he closed the door for me and hurried and sat next to me in the driver's seat. He was staring at me and I was looking straight out of the car.

Then, he smiled and said,"Your seat belt. I will do it for you."
He bent over to my seat and grabbed my seat belt, again coming so close to me. My heart beat was so fast, I think he can hear it too, because he was trying to hide his smile. He fastened my seat belt and said,"Jane, breath!" And then he went back to his seat. I didn't realise I have stopped breathing. I don't know why, but I liked it when he is so close to me. I don't know why I want him to be close to me, just be near me.

He looked at me and smiled. Then he started the car. I didn't realise that I was staring at him until he commented.

"Is something wrong with my face? Or you think I am really very handsome? You are starring at me."he said with a smirk.
I shook my head and looked out of my window.

I don't know why I was staring at him? But, he also stares at me whole day then why can't I? But, I can't say that aloud. Why I am being like this? What is happening to me? Why do I keep feeling attracted to him? I hate him, right? I always have from the day we first met. He always makes me do what he wants. He always commands me around. Then, why?

Is Jane falling for Barry? Will she understand her feelings for him? How will Barry react to this? Does Barry love her too or its just concern for her as she looks like Rosy and he wants to help Jane to get ride of all his guilt that he has?
