Chapter- Twenty Nine

"Zoe?" I asked, my eyes widened in shock and my heart nearly stopped beating.

I couldn't control my feelings. Excitement. Fear. Nostalgia.

I could feel my eyes watering, "Zoe." I whispered.

Now that she was standing in front of me, it felt more real. Zoe was really here.

"Chanel," She gasped out, "Oh my God, you are alive." She said, her left hand went to cover her mouth as if she couldn't believe I was standing right in front of her.

To be honest, I too couldn't believe.

I nodded my head shakily and went near her and gave her a tight hug.

Damn Vitale, I didn't care that she was with Lucio. I was glad that I had met her at that time.

"Oh my God,Chanel tell me are they treating you well? You need to come with me.." She babbled on and halfway to her speech, I zoned out.

"Zoe, listen. I'm alright. In fact I'm more than alright." I told her, holding her shoulders.

She nodded slowly, "I cannot believe you are here."

"Me too. I thought you were... Urm.. Ahh.. Dead." I told her truthfully, and flinched inwardly at the word 'dead.'

It was not like dead had any meaning in this world. To was either your life or theirs.

And we all know what our choice would be.

Zoe shook her head, "I am not. I just saw what I was not supposed to and everything just went...-" she took a deep breath, "Everything went downhill from then."  Her eyes look sad as if remembering the incident hurt her.

Why would it not? She had to leave a family. A loving and caring family.

Obviously she had more to loose that I ever would.

"I'm so sorry Zoe." I gave her most overrated consoling words.

She just shook her head and smiled, "It is not your fault and besides Lucio is treating me well." She told, her smile turning into a grin.

This was Zoe.

She could find light even in the most darkest of situations. And I respected her for that. She never lost hope.

"Tell me about that-" I started rolling my eyes playfully at her, "Lucio did kidnap me once." I told, my tone had humour in it.

But God knows how true was that.

I was kidnapped. Twice.

That was definitely something for me.

Normal people would definitely freak out at these types of situation. Not me.

I was far from normal.

I saw Zoe stiffen. "I didn't know that." She shook her head as if she was not believing anything, "I don't even know anything, Chanel. Everything is so confusing here. Lucio refuses to tell me anything and God that Vincenzo. I've never hated anyone as I do to him." She finished, her voice was full of frustration.

I nodded my head, "My life is not anything better." I told her rolling my eyes.

She gave me a small smile, "Life definitely doesn't work out the way we want, isn't it?"

_______

Zoe gave me a feeling of familiarity and ease.

She was also in the same situation as me. Alone.

I knew that I should've freaked out when I saw her but really nothing surprises me much nowadays.

Seeing dead bodies had this type of effect.

Even my sense of humor was becoming dark.

I sighed and continues starring at the ceiling. After we talked, Zoe went and we both promised to keep everything to ourselves considering Vitale and Lucio were rivals.

We don't want anymore drama. Zoe gave me her number and told me to call her.

I actually felt like an idiot at that moment when I told her I don't have a phone.

I highly doubt Vitale would give me one but I was planning to convince him to buy me one on my birthday.

Now let's just hope everything would be okay from now onwards.

But oh how wrong I was!
