"I'm so happy for you Lahaina" dad cried out of happiness and probably hugged her.

I moved down the few more steps that gave me a clear view to where they were sitting. Lahaina and Aaron were sitting together with dad sitting opposite so them and another man, in his mid twenties, sitting to Aaron's right.

As they heard my footsteps, they all turned to look at me. Lahaina gave me a bitchy oh-I-told-you-this-before look and smirked. Aaron looked at me too for a nano second before turning back to face dad.

I turned around and ran out, not wanting to know the details of their wedding and all.

"I saw Aaron get in" Nadia said in a low tone as I sat beside her on the passenger seat of the car.

"I know" I whispered my head hung low.

"What's going on inside?" She asked starting the ignition.

"Oh nothing much. Just discussing about wedding and stuffs" I answered trying to sound funny but failed miserably.

Nadia didn't say anything, just drove to her apartment.

"So what are you planning to do now?" Nadia said raising her brows and placing a plate of ham and eggs in front of me.

"I'm not hungry" I said and pushed the plate away to her.

"Answer my question first"

"I'll be staying with you for three or four days and then when I feel like I'm fine, I'll go back home and live my life like I used to" I shrugged.

"And do shopping for your step sister's wedding, be her bride's maid and have fun. Right?" she said sarcastically.

She came to stand beside me and pulled me out of my chair "I know you're strong. But..."

"I'm fine" I said with a smile.

"I know you're not so don't lie!" She said and hugged me tight. So tight that I almost choked. "if I get a chance I'll kill that bitch" she whispered, moving her hands through my hair.

My lips quivered as I was about to say something and tears fell down. I hugged Nadia with all my strength and hid my head in her neck, not able to control my emotions anymore.

She rubbed my back with one hand while she placed the other on my head whispering that it will all be fine.

We broke our hug after god knows how long, I sat back on my chair with her next to mine.

"You love him" Nadia said after a long silence.

"I don't know" I shook my head.

"You do"

"I can't. I don't even know him well and it doesn't matter now" I said as more tears rolled down my cheeks.

"What exactly happened in the ball?" Nadia asked curious.

"I went to the party with Dylan, happy that I was about to meet Aaron after such a long time and I had already decided that it will be the last time I'll see him, but then I saw Aaron with Lahaina holding each other and standing close, too close. They looked really happy and then he asked her for a dance to which she happily agreed. I was about to leave when I gave a last look to them and they were kissing each other" I started well but cried hysterically at the end.

"That bloody-" Nadia started only to be stopped in between.

"It's not his fault. I knew it from the beginning. I knew Lahaina wanted to marry Aaron and that dad and Aaron's father were already discussing about it but I chose to ignore it. This was just my fault and no one else's. I knew it all. Maybe Aaron was just being nice to me and I...." I couldn't say more as I started to sob.
