Chapter 9

"It's about Jack and I" she started when they were seated on the couch. "Jack and I are getting married in the next two months.

"Oh, Emmy, I'm so happy for you, congratulation" Julia stated with a quivering voice.

"Now don't start crying and get puffy eyes if you want to be my maid of honour."

"You want me to be your maid of honour? Oh Emmy, what have I ever done to get a friend like you". Emerald nodded in affirmation to Julia's question, afraid tears will flow of she utters a word.

"It is a privilege to be your maid of honour. I will be so grateful".

They prepared a meal of ham sandwich with vegetable salad and ate together.

Emerald left moments later.

Her eyes widened as he started taking steps towards her. In her attempt to get away from him, she slipped. She was expecting her fall but she felt strong arms around her instead, arms preventing her from falling.

As she raised her eyes, he caught her gaze and held her there. His mouth was on hers before she could react. She responded by instinct. He ravished her lips that both of them we're breathing heavily. He gently pushed her unto the bed with the towel still around him.
