Chapter Fifteen

1.6K 53 3

Maybe the body didn't belong to him. Maybe it belonged to another person. Now that I think about it. It was probably that way. I remembered when Roman died. It was a car accident and I wasn't there. That day was one of the worst days of my life.

I cried a lot that day. It started normally. I woke up to a sweet good morning text from him. He was the sweetest person ever. I kept murmuring about him and how sweet he was. The day before that day was my birthday and he took me out all day. We kept talking, laughing and joking.

We watched movies, and went to the park. He gave me a lot of presents. He first gave me makeup, and then clothes. I kept saying that it was much but he forced me to take them. He also gave me a new phone because I kept talking about how my family was punishing me for my bad grades for keeping my old phone with me.

* Flashback *

" Roman, do you know how annoying parents can get? Like, mother kept annoying me this morning because I didn't get good grades. How did you survive grade nine? I don't know if I will make it alive with my parents around." I kept mumbling over the phone.

Roman and I would talk everyday and every five minutes. He didn't seem to mind and it made me happy. At first, I was the type of girlfriend who was quite because she didn't want to bother her boyfriend, specially that he was my first, and then I changed to the talkative girlfriend who would talk enough for both of us. He didn't mind that also.

I just adored him a lot. He was just perfect in my eyes. That day was two weeks before my birthday and that was how the gifts thing started.

He brought me everything that my parents had promised me to get if I got good grades; a camera, new phone, makeup, clothes and even a laptop. His family was rich so he didn't mind. I kept saying that it was too much but he still forced me. That was when my parents said no to the gift.

He made me feel a lot better. That day was one of the best days of my life. He kept saying that he wasn't happy with my grades and that I should work more. But he said that he was still proud of me anyway. Ugh! Why was he so sweet?

" Oh my God! Roman! I love you." I said as I hugged him and peeked his lips.

I was so happy. He first, went to my room and woke me up.

" Change and come down." he said and I obeyed. I wasn't feeling good because usually I hated my birthdays. Yeah! I waited for them, but every year I would meet disappoint.

He took me to his house where all my friends and people who had something in my heart were. I was so happy. I couldn't stop smiling. They sang for me and gave me gifts and when they left it was around two pm. I thought that this was everything but it wasn't.

He took me to the park and we played like kids. I was only sixteen then so I was a kid. He was eighteen. Two years difference! After that, he brought me ice cream and then we went to to watch a film.

After the film, we left to his home. We stayed together and played childish games. I was so happy then. After that, he gave me another gift.

" But this is too much, baby! Enough what you have gotten two weeks ago." I argued.

" No! These were because you needed them. This is from me to you." he said and I smiled and kissed his cheek.

I accepted the girt and opened it to find a sweet necklace. It was made of gold and it had two letters on it A&R. I was so happy and I wore that necklace on my neck. At night, Roman took me home and that was the last time I saw him.

" No, he can't be dead. Please! He can't be. You are all mistaken. He is okay. He is just asleep." I screamed.

" No, miss. We know what we are doing. He is dead. He isn't breathing and his heart isn't beating. The accident was too much for him." said the doctor making my tears fall harder.

I fell to the chair as I started crying my eyes out. That was all I did for the whole week. Cry. I cried every time I remembered him. I couldn't believe that he was gone. He was no longer there with me.

I opened my phone and looked at the selfie that we had taken the previous day. My tears fell on the screen as I lost a very important piece of me.

* Flash backs end*

I found myself asleep again, and the dreams were actually my flashbacks. That was what I realized when I felt myself being shaken awake.

I opened my eyes slowly and saw him. I forced my tears back, and I didn't know what to do. It hurts knowing that he didn't care about me and that he didn't mean a word from what he said. I was dying inside because I wasn't over him yet. I didn't even date another guy because I didn't want to be over him.

" Leave me alone. I want to sleep." I said as I turned away from him.

" Are you okay, Aubrianna?"

' How am I supposed to be with you being near?'

" Yeah! I am fine. Just a bad dream." I said drying my tears.

" Tell me about it." he asked with care in his eyes that I got to know that it was fake.

" No! It's silly. Plus, bad dreams and nightmares can be true when you tell someone about them." I said as I placed a fake smile on my face.

I rubbed my eyes, and then stood up and then said " Where are we?"

I was trying to change the topic. I couldn't simply tell him that I knew everything. To be honest, I wanted to know for how much time was I supposed to believe the lies in.

" A hotel. It belongs to someone I know. We will be staying here for a while. This is our room mine, yours and Derek's. It contains three beds one bathroom, and one television. Okay?" I nodded in return.

" Where is the bathroom?" I asked.

" In front of you."

" Okay! Thank you!" I replied and went to the bathroom.

I washed my face and then kept talking to myself. Mainly assuring myself that everything would be fine. Also, a little part of me kept telling me that Roman had good reasons behind his actions. I sighed and then went out.

" Brianna, we got you some clothes. Go and change. Also if you want take a shower. Malik and I had already taken." said Derek.

" So you are Derek?!" I stated and he nodded.

" Yeah, and you are Aubrianna Mason?"

" Yep!" I said doing my famous hair flip.

" Now, go and change because to be honest you stink. Second, Malik isn't here. He went to get breakfast." said Derek and I shot him a glare.

" Even if I just came out of a trash can, I will be smelling better than you after hundredth of showers and baths, so don't you dare say I stink again. Understood?" I said with a glare.

" Yeah! Yeah!" he said rolling his eyes.

I smiled and then went to the bathroom and locked the door. I needed a bath to relax. I sighed and started enjoying my bath.

Two chapters in one day. Count that as a sorry for the late update. Tell me what do you think about Derek. Is he a nice guy or what? What would happen to Aubrianna and Roman now? Will he tell her soon? Or keep the act?! What do you think about their memories together. And please tell me how can I make this book better. Thank you :)

What do you think about the story? Is it good? Did you enjoy reading? Was there any parts that bothered you while reading? Was there any annoying/ confusing/ boring part? Is the length if the chapter good? And the paragraphs? What can do to improve it? Give the chapter a scale from one to ten...
