Paradise-15

Mage's POV

I looked at the clock and it's already 8 in the evening. Earlier at dinner, all they did was tease me. Ugh, I feel sleepy already, I feel tired. Maybe because of the meetings with some clients earlier. It was fun and it's just a simple meeting. Thanks to Kate, she told me everything that I will do.

*Ring* *Ring*

I looked to my side table for my phone but it isn't there.

*Ring* *Ring*

I opened all the drawers but still, my phone isn't there.

*Ring* *Ring*

Oh, my bag. Yeah yeah. I opened my bag and saw my phone. I checked my phone and it said that I got a missed call from an unknown number.. My phone lit up and started to ring again.

"Hello? Who's this?" I asked.

"Guess who."

"Colton? Colton!" I said excitedly.

"Hey. You guessed me fast huh." Colton said.

"Yeah, so, what's up?" I asked.

"Nothing, just wanted to call you." He said and I chuckled.

"Aw, that's sweet. Heh, btw, where did you got my number?" I asked.

"That's a secret. Hahaha. What are you doing?" He asked.

"Hm, besides breathing.. Actually I am about to sleep right now. I had tons of meetings earlier." I said.

"Oh, I'm sorry.." He said.

"No, it's fine.. Hey Colton.." I said.

"Ey?" He asked.

"I'll just give you a call tomorrow, I feel very sleepy right now." I said.

"Oh, sure. Good night. Don't let the bed bugs bite!" He said.

"Good night." I said and then hanged up.

Wait, I remember, Jack didn't tell me what is his problem. Eh, I'll just ask him tomorrow.

I closed my eyes and then I finally drifted off to sleep.

Mage's POV

*Ring* *Ring*

I lazily fluttered my eyes open and looked for my phone. I covered my whole body with blanket, it's a little cold today..

"Good morning beautiful."

"Hahaha, good morning." I said while giggling.

"Good morning too." I turned around and saw Jack standing.

"Oh, hold on Colt.. Good morning Jack." I said while sitting up.

"Oh, you were talking to Colton?" Jack asked.

"Yeah, wait.. Hey Colton, I'll just give you a call later okay?" We said our goodbyes and I hanged up.

"So, what's up?" I asked.

"Nothing, it's just time for breakfast." He said and I nodded.

"I'll be downstairs in a few. Thank you." I said and then he went out.

After a couple of minutes doing my routine, I headed downstairs and to the dining room.

"Good morning Jack. Where's mom and dad?" I asked.

"Morning. Already at work." He said shortly.

"Okay.. let's start eating then." I said and then we started eating.

It's like there is tension in the air while we're eating and I don't know why. I'll just continue eating, hope the tension will be gone soon..

Jack's POV

It's already 12 in the evening and I can't sleep. I'm just here in the living room. Stand, make a little walk and then sit. That's what I am doing right now. Maybe, she's still awake talking to Colton. Colton really do gets into my nerves since the first time I saw him, it feels like there is something wrong with him.

I heard the door clicked so I stood up. I saw Mr. and Mrs. Silvers walking by so I greeted them.

"Good evening." I said and they turned around a little shocked.

"I nearly got a heart attack, why are you still awake?" Aunt asked.

"Just can't sleep I guess." I said.

"Okay, but you better try to sleep because we'll go somewhere tomorrow, maybe after lunch or something." Aunt said excitedly.

"Oh? Where?" I asked curious.

"That's a surprise." Aunt said. "Okay, we'll head upstairs now, we are both tired from work.." Aunt added and I nodded.

"Have a nice night Aunt.." I said.

"Wait, I'll just follow you upstairs honey, I just need to talk to Jack." Uncle said and aunt nodded.

"Sure. Goodnight, don't stay up too late." Aunt said and then she headed upstairs.

"Is there something you want to talk about sir?" I asked.

"You have a problem son?" He asked while smiling.

"Eh-hum.." I stuttered. I felt some type of déjà vu.

"Didn't I tell you that you can open up to me son?" He asked. "It's about Mage, isn't it?" He added.

"Yeah, it's just Colton kept calling her and all. I really fu- I mean I really hate him. It's seems that he likes Mage." I admitted irritatedly.

"Oh.. Then what's the problem if he likes Mage?" He asked.

"I don't know.." I said.

"You like my daughter, don't you?" He asked a little serious.

"I don't know. It's just that the thought of Colton liking Mage and Mage liking Colton back makes me angry." I explained.

"Last time, you said that when Mage told you that she love you as her best friend, you felt a pang. Now, about Colton.. So, you really like Mage. You're just afraid to admit it son." He said.

"You aren't mad?" I asked.

"Nah, why would I be? And, Colton versus you? It is hands down, you got my vote son." He said while patting my head.

"Thanks sir. I'll prove to you that you will not regret that." I said.

"Yeah yeah, good luck son. I know that you won't disappoint us. Okay, I'll head upstairs now. Goodnight son and I am hoping that you'll make a move already." He said.

"Goodnight sir, I'll try. Thank you btw sir." I said, he nodded and then went upstairs already.

Phew, what a night.

Okay this, I know this sounds gay but, I believe that true love can wait. Meant to be is meant to be. I'll find a work so I can surprise her in the day that I want to admit my feelings for her.

After a couple of minutes roaming around, I finally felt sleepy.
