Chapter 17


Scarlett’s POV

As Eros said the very next day his mom came and we went to buy the dress for engagement and other function.

We were totally exhausted when we came back home.

But her mother was a nice lady, not like Mr. Rude.

Still you like him.

No, I don’t.

Keep on lying.

Today is my engagement ceremony and I’m getting ready for the function and my best friend Sonya was the one who is helping me to get ready.

I was wearing a red strapless gown, it was so beautiful, I feel like a princess. My makeup was minimal and a high bun was made with my hairs and not to forget, heels.. my true love. I was wearing black heels. But no one can see them because my gown was so long.

Still I’m wearing it so I know about my heels.

Are you obsessed with the heels?

You can say that.

When I finally got ready. I glanced at the mirror. I can’t recognise myself, I was looking different. Like totally different. Never thought I can also look so glamorous.

All thanks to Sonya.

And me.

What did you do?

I stayed silent.

Right, thanks.

You owe me for that.

I rolled my eyes.

Soon my mom entered my room and her mouth broke into an ear to ear smile.

“Honey, you look gorgeous” she said by kissing my forehead.

“Hey, I’m also here. What about me? Don’t I look good” Sonya asked.

Sonya was wearing a light pink dress with her back open. She looks beautiful and sexy as always with white heels.

“Yeah you also look very beautiful but not more than my daughter” my mom teased.

Sonya put an hand on heart showning that she was hurt.

Drama queen.

I chuckled at both of them.

“Now let’s get leaving, otherwise we’ll be late and where is Richard?” My mom asked.

“Mom he’ll be meeting us directly at the party” I said.

My mom nodded.

Then we all exited our house and got seated into the car and drove towards the location where my engagement party is held.

When we reached our destination I looked around sitting inside the car. The place was beautiful, lights were glowing everywhere, small lights were lit on the sides of road. It was totally a mesmerising scene.

Wow, I didn’t think that your engagememt will be that good. Forget that, I don’t even think that you’ll get engaged one day.

Shut up.

Everyone exited the car except me as I was told that Eros and I have to enter together.

Romantic.

Yeah, yeah, why not? If you have to wait then only you can understand my feelings.

So I was waiting in the car, suddenly the car door opened. When I looked at the person, Eros. I look at him in aww, he stared me for few seconds without blinking.

Guess someone got busy in checking out you.

Then he cleared his throat.

“Hello baby” he smiled.

He gave me his hand which I gladly accepted as I wanted to go inside.

Yeahh, we are believing you.

I exited the car and turned towards Eros. As Eros kissed my cheek.

Then only I notice how handsomely sexy he was looking.

He was looking devilishly handsome in his black tux and he was wearing a matching red bow tie according to my dress. Je looked totally breathtakingly hot.

Oh my, he looks so dashing.

When I came back to my senses then only I noticed that he was checking me out and was looking at me, more like staring.

“You’re looking totally ravishing tonight” he said with a wink.

I blushed.

“You also don’t look bad yourself” I said.

A smile crept on his face.

Aww, this smile, the most beautiful thing. It should be banned, otherwise, I don’t know how many people will die.

True.

When I looked forward dozens of cameramen were there to click our photos.

I got nervous and my body stiffens.

But Eros helped me to tackle them and enter the hall.

Seriously he’s your knight in the shining tux.

The hall was grand and beautifully decorated, lights were lit everywhere. It looks perfect, there were more than hundred people. The hall was fully packed.

Did everyone in this country is invited?

I smiled and moved forward towards the crowd.

“Attention everybody, the beautiful bride and handsome groom has arrived, give them a big round of applause ” someone announced.

Yeah, we are the star of the night.

And everyone turned their faces towards us with the clapping of hands.

We both looked at each other and smiled towards the crowd.

Then our family members came. He started introducing me to the people.

“So you are the one” a guy looked me from up to down. He was wearing a blue tux, his hairs were light brown, his eyes were greyish blue. But he look too damn cute.

Isn’t he hot?

Yeah, but not more than Eros.

Seriously?

“Huh?” I unsurely asked.

“You are that girl whom my idiot friend trapped in his charms..” he said by putting a finger under his chin.

“Sorry?” I said.

“How can he be that lucky?” he said more to himself.

“Oh shut up”someone said from behind.

When I turned around Eros was coming towards our way.

Did he said shut up to you?

"Don’t you dare say anything rubbish to my fiance” Eros said.

Oh! Not you.

“Okay, anything rubbish” he said with a shrug.

I laughed at his response. Eros rolled his eyes, the guy smiled at me.

“How can you be so stupid?” Eros asked the guy.

“I don’t know. That’s my talent bro that not everybody have and I know you are jealous of me” he winked at Eros.

“So Scarlett? Why did you said yes to marry this idiot? Do you also fall for his charms and good looks?” the guy asked me.

I chuckled at the idiot word because it suits Eros a lot.

“No. I didn’t fell for his charms” I said but cut off by Eros

“She fell on her butts” he said.

Both of them laughed.

I groaned and narrowed my eyes at Eros. He shrugged.

Well technically, its the truth.

I know.

“On a serious note, why this idiot why not anyone with blue eyes and brown hair? Who must be near you or may be in front of you” he said.

I laughed. And shaked my head.

“That’s enough Nick” Eros huffed.

What’s with him?

The cute guy laughed.

“Sorry I forgot to introduce myself, I’m Nick Wilson. This idiot’s best friend. I have heard a lot about you Scarlett but the words don’t do justice on you” Nick said by kissing the back of my palm.

I blushed.

“I bet he didn’t tell you anything about me” Nick asked.

I shaked my head in no.

“Ah, what can I say he’s so possesive over me. He don’t want people to know about me. They might steal me” he dramatically said with a wink at me.

I chuckled.

Eros arm came around my waist and he pulled me towards him.

“No, I’m not possessive over you” Eros stated.

“What can I say? Priority changes” Nick said teasingly looking at Eros’s arm.

I blushed.

“Scarlett I must say he got really lucky to have you, you’d be perfect for him. And please tell him to respect me because I’m his only friend. More like only one who can bear him” Nick grinned.

I chuckled.

“Thank you Nick and I’ll try to tell him about your importnace” I smiled.

Suddenly someone called me.

When I turned towards the source of voice my best friends were calling for me.

I smiled back and walked towards them.

I hugged them both and introduced them to both Eros and Nick.

Eros excused himself and went away. Nick was such a nice guy, not anything like Mr. Rude.

When I looked around, I found Eros was talking to a very beautiful girl, with brown hairs and hazel eyes. She was so beautiful. She was wearing a light purple evening gown in which she looks stunning.

Eros and I made an eye contact but soon he broked it and started talking to the girl.

I huffed.

I’m his fiance and he’s ignoring me. Why the hell it is affecting me a lot? He can talk to who so ever he want but why this unknown feeling?

I groaned in annoyance.

Honey this unknown feeling is jealously.

Noo, it can’t be. For jealousy I have to like him which I don’t.

Liar. You obviously like him.

I don’t think so.

I ignored my inner voices and Eros both and walked away from there to Richie.

“Who is that girl with Eros? Don’t you think she’s beautiful? ” Richie asked eying the girl.

“I don’t know, but don’t you think Eros is very much engrossed and enjoying talking to her? Who the hell is she for whom he ignored me?” I huffed.

Why sudden anger, huh?

“Babe, don’t take your anger on me. I know you’re jealous but leave us ” he said.

“Who told you I’m jealous because I’m not” I hissed.

“Yes you are. Even an blind can tell that you are so jealous of that girl” I groaned..

“I’m not and why would I be? Now excuse me” I grimly smiled
and walked away.

When I was walking I bumped into a wall, a wall in the middle? Shit...shitty shit.

"Do you love to bump me?” He chuckled.

Why always he? Can’t I bump into a real wall? It would be so much better.

“Er.. no, why would I? Actually I was in deep thoughts that’s why I didn’t see you” I replied.

“What were you thinking so deeply?” he questioned raising his eyebrow.

“None of your business” I snapped.

He sighed.

“Come I want you to meet someone very close to me” he said.

He must be taking you to that girl so he’s so close to her.

“Um.. no I have to do something” I hurriedly walked out from there without even glancing back.

I took a flute of champagne and gulped it down due to nervousness.

“Well helloo shortcake” Nick came in front of me.

I smiled and kept on walking.

“What happened? Why are you ignoring me? Did something happened to you? Everything’s alright?” He asked.

“Uh... nothing, everything’s fine” I said.

“Did Eros do anything?” He asked.

“Do you want to take a revenge on Eros?” He asked.

“Huh?” I confusingly asked.

“Yes or no?” He questioned.

This is the chance, accept his offer. He’ll help you.

“I’m not sure, um... okay, but what are you going to do?”

“Just wait and watch shortcake” he said with a wink..

He get a hold of my hand and walked in the middle.

“Let’s make him jealous” he stated.

“What are you going to do? It will not harm him no? It’s for fun no?” I questioned.

“Yes shortcake. Why would I hurt him? He’s my best friend but we should give him some dose.” he stated.

“What?”

This time he ignored me.

What is he trying to do?

How will Eros be jealous for me.

Oh god.

Did I do right thing to accept Nick’s proposal?
