Chapter 25 💌
“You are okay now, you just have to rest a bit” The nurse said to Derek who seems to care less about what she is saying.
She sighed when she got no response and left him alone.
Karen’s words keeps bothering Derek, he is lost. Does he like her? It isn’t that he doesn’t know, it is just that he can’t accept it.
He likes Karen but he still likes his girlfriend, even after what she did. He can’t forget her, they have known each other from the beginning of their life. He can’t just forget her like that, apart from his feelings. He feet like he owes her.
His feelings for Karen is deep, but so is his feelings for Aileen. Right now, he is confused.
Confused about his own feelings, his head hurt so much that he feels like it might explode.
And when he was unconscious, he had a strange dream that he can’t remember again. But in his dream, he was so happy.
Maybe it was good to stay unconscious than waking up.
His eyes was fixed on the bed beside him untill he felt someone’s presence. He looked at the person and it was Aileen, who was soaked in tears.
“What do you want?” Derek asked coldly. Right now, he is numb. He feels nothing, her tears doesn’t affect him a bit.
Aileen move closer to him and hugged him. “Am sorry” She said.
“Am sorry for what I did, now and then. So please forgive me, I can’t do without you”
“Am really sorry” She said crying in his arm.
Even though he felt nothing right now, it doesn’t feel right to let cry like this. Not after what she has done for me, no matter what she is still his angel.
He pulled her away and clean her tears.
“Am also sorry Karen(Aileen), it is all my fault too” Derek said and Aileen sniffed.
“But still you shouldn’t have done that, hurting yourself is the same thing as hurting me” Derek said and Aileen nod.
“I know, am sorry. I just don’t want another person to come between us. I love you so much Derek, I love you that I will die for you” Aileen cries and hugged him again.
Derek feel guilty because of her word, she loved him but right now his heart is divided. Between her and the other Karen, he feels guilty.
He should but he doesn’t regret it, he doesn’t regret liking the other Karen. But still, it is highly time, he stop. He doesn’t want to hurt her again, she has loved him for almost all her life.
She waited for him for so long, it will be unfair to her if he has start liking another girl. No, he has already like another girl.
“But he can still stop it, it’s never to late” Those were his thoughts as he hugged Aileen back.
<<<Beverly High School>>>
It is another day at Beverly high school, Karen wondered what today will be about. To say the truth, since Derek has started this school. A lot of things have happened to her, and that scared her, what might happen today?.
“What are you thinking?” Becca said with a bright smile in front of Karen.
“Nothing much, so did you ask Jordan about Derek?” Karen asked and Becca rolled her eyes.
“Is he the only one in your heart, you act like he is the only one that matters. What about me and Lydia?” Becca said jealous.
Karen smiled at her words “I could say the same to you, you have been clinging around Jordan since yesterday”
“Ah, that. Well, I have to. To protect my candy from those ants” Becca said and faced the girls drooling at Jordan. She gave them a hard stare and they all look away, knowing what it means.
Karen laughed at her. “You two look perfect” Karen complimented and Becca smiled.
“So how is Derek?” Karen asked again while Becca sighed.
“Well, Jordan said he is fine. He was smiling throughout yesterday with his fake girlfriend” Becca replied and Karen smiled changed to a sad look.
She was thinking about him throughout yesterday, but he was with his girlfriend. She didn’t forget the word”Smiling” That makes her really sad.
“Oh, I see” Karen muttered sad.
“Just forget about him, he is the worst” Becca said but Karen said nothing.
“Should we go have some ice cream?” Becca asked trying to lighten up Karen’s mood.
“Shall we?” Karen faked a smile but was not enough to fool Becca.
“Where the hell is Lydia?” Becca asked no one in particular.
“Oh, he is here” Becca said referring to Derek which making Karen look back and saw Derek with Aileen, holding hands.
It was obvious that he was trying to show they are couples.
Karen couldn’t be more angry when Derek pecked Aileen and she smiled. That should be her, it was supposed to be her and it is killing her seriously but she can’t do anything.
“Excuse me for a moment” Karen said and went to Derek.
She tapped him from behind and he turned to her, still not letting go of Aileen.
“Can we talk?” She asked while Aileen gulped down in fear. “Is she going to tell him that she is the real Karen?” She thought.
“About what?” Derek asked trying hard not to show his emotions neither his excitement.
“Something private and important” Karen answered.
“What is important and private?” Aileen yelled as fear gripped her.
“Something you don’t have to know about” Karen countered.
“What?…..” Aileen was cut short by Derek.
“Don’t worry, I will be back soon” He assured and pecked her again
Karen clenched her fist angry.
“Let’s go” Derek uttered and followed Karen to the hall, not knowing Aileen followed them.
“What do you want to talk about?” Derek asked.
“About yesterday” Karen wanted to speak but Derek interrupted.
“About yesterday, am sorry. I should have never done that, I guess I wasn’t in my right sense” Derek apologize and that makes Karen heart ache more.
“What do you mean?”
“Am sorry I hugged you like that, I shouldn’t have. I guess I was over excited that I woke up after from the incident. And also I want you to know that I love my girlfriend a lot, and am sorry about what she did to you.”
“She just loves me so much, just as I did. if you’ll excuse me” He said and head to leave.
“What about me? Do you even care about me?” Karen said which makes Derek unhappy.
He knows he is hurting her, but he has to do this. It hurts him as much as it hurt her.
He turned to her with a cold face.
“What about you?” Derek asked and that makes Karen gasped. His words is really hurting her, it tearing her apart.
“I think you misunderstood, I was only confused for a moment. I don’t like you, and I will never do”
