Chapter 2- Drama

Bryce calmed down and started being doubtful; what was so huge that Iris decided to keep this secret from him ,if it wasn't a child then what was it? What could it be? Who could it be?

" what's the use you slept with Gina."

She Picked her phone up and got her car keys ,she felt like leaving running even disappearing for a while, until the fight she was having with Bryce fizzled out like bubbles in a glass of soda, but she had to bite the bullet,grab the bull by the horns, and tackle the problem at hand head on.

Bryce dismissed her comment and tried to dig and push harder he wasn't going to go down quietly, or without a fight.

" we'll deal with that, what were you doing for months at the hospital Iris,no contact no nothing ? What was I supposed to think"

Bryce wiped a tear off his eye and he looked remorseful he was filled with confusion and hurt,

" don't you think I deserve to know ?".

"Remember the first week when I told you I wasn't okay and I went to the hospital?"

"The week we hit the rocks and you were way too evasive ."

"The week you found me difficult "

she walked to the kitchen got a glass out of the cabinet drank some water and she took a deep breath. Bryce got even more impatient

" just tell me!"

What had led to the

first argument they had was what led to the second one. Could this spell the

end to their relationship, or was there. More

"How many times Logan?

Cause I know you so well "

She closed her eyes and took a deep breath .

She force the words

out she had seen the look in Bryce's eyes, the look that said it all the look

that said ;I have just gone and messed up what we had and It's killing me that I hurt you the way I did.

"Five times."

Bryce paused for what seemed to be three seconds his eyes were about well up but he held back and told himself he should be man enough and be honest because Iris deserved to know the truth, he also had something eating at him which led to his

unfaithfulness...

"What; wasn't I

enough for you? What did I do? I just said we needed a breather and that we

should rediscover ourselves not jump into bed with the next person."

Her voice went all husky as she also tried to fight back the tears that were burning at

the back of her eyes, and she could feel a lump in her throat.

Bryce replied

"I didn't want to cheat on you it just happened I was drunk, she was drunk we just

had the mother of all fights on the phone, and during the 5 months we were shooting

we comforted each other. Hell she was going through a similar situation, her

significant other was being an impossible man, she came to set crying, I cannot

watch someone suffer like that, and she gave me a shoulder to cry on too, when

we were on the verge of ending it all."

Bryce knew that it

was a weak explanation , he did not want to be explicit he couldn't bear the

thought of telling Iris what really

happened at the same time he was having

flashbacks about the five nights of passion with Gina.

Iris gained her

composure and tried regaining her self control as well as her emotional control.

"I know I haven't been the easiest person to

come home to but really Bryce how could you ,fine we didn't talk and we were

not broken up we just hit a hiccup, that doesn't mean that we are not engaged

or it's over.

Iris paused and that only made the suspense of what she wanted to say kill Bryce slowly.

"How could you do this to us, who else did you shag

during our little hiatus. "

Iris replied sarcastically.

Bryce flipped and

discovered a side of himself he never knew, something switched on in him and he

retaliated with a vengeance, this however was for seeable.

"Yeah right you were

not the easiest person to come home to, you were always moody, if not

irritable, and I put up with that. I was there for you okay I get that you work

but ,you came home late ,left early, hell it was a miracle if I ever saw you I

was hurting ."

Iris's phone went off again and it was work; she hang up as she

is no mood to deal with her nosy boss who probably wanted her to fill in for

someone during the weekend she put the phone on the table.

"Why the hell didn't

you call me ? Yes fine I get that I'm sometimes moody, it's just me deal with it,

you're not Mr. Perfect. I was there for you, there during the 5 months we took

a break ,where you couldn't even bother to pick up the phone and call or even

try and understand what I was going through. You just left without warning"

Bryce came to the

realization that Iris was keeping something serious from him something that

could break them ,or give their relationship more character whatever the reason was

he was going to push.

"You couldn't tell me

what was going on and yet you had frequent doctor's visits. I asked you

countless of times what was going on you just up and left ,what was I supposed

to do , I couldn't take it anymore, and every time I called the hospital I couldn't get through to you why was that ? .

A lot of assumptions

went through his mind and he started thinking a lot of things he got more fired

up and infuriated. His face registered anger. His body was burning with furry,

he wanted to throttle someone, kick or punch something that's how angry he was

like a volcano on the verge of eruption.

"I did not want to

put you through what I was going through please try and understand. It happened so fast, if I had told you then you were going to drop the movie role and stay, I couldn't do that to you "

Fear crept over Iris

like an unexpected ice cold breeze on a summers day, besides being confused she was afraid, afraid that she might have pushed Bryce too hard, afraid that she didn't know the man she was looking at...but even more afraid that she might have sparked something in Bryce; that might just set him off on a tirade

or worse make him go rouge.

The Phone rang again;

Bryce grabbed it and threw it against the wall with extreme force and fury he let out a roar out of frustration. The phone didn't break but it switched off.

He couldn't remember the last time he was so furious, and hurt at the same time.

"You're scaring me"

Iris said with tears in her eyes and a quivering voice because she knew what she had done

"I don't know whatthe hell to think! Wait, wait were you pregnant and had an abortion for the

sake of your career"

He was about to cry too at the fact that he was angry and shocked that he just lost it.

"What was it then Iris ,what cause if that's the case you're not the woman I fell in love with. "

In disbelief Iris answered

Bryce ;she rolled her eyes and threw her hands in the air.

"No I would never do

that to you"

She stood up and looked outside the window, was a beautiful view of the sunset kissing the city goodnight. There was a haunted house silence in the room

so silent that you could hear a pin drop and it would be so loud.

"How could you even

think that?" She took a deep breath and looked at Bryce with sad eyes and he looked back with hurt and anger.

"Iris tell me it

kills me that I hurt you and the way I did it was unfair to you ;we used to

speak without words communicate so well .I want to fix us. "

Bryce had calmed down and he started being doubtful, what was so huge that Iris decided to keep this secret from him, and if it wasn't a child then what was it?

What could it be? Who could it be? Who was the woman standing in front of him?

He even started questioning his own questions.

"What's the use you

slept with Gina. Not once but five times, five times"

She repeated lifting up her hand signing the number five. Iris Picked up her phone and got her car keys; she felt like

leaving running even well disappearing for a while until the fight she was

having with Bryce fizzled out like bubbles in a glass of coke light, but she

had to bite the bullet, grab the bull by the horns tackle the problem at hand

head on, she started the fire after all

Bryce dismissed her

comment and tried to dig and push harder he wasn't going to go down quietly or

without a fight, if their engagement meant anything to both of them they would

be able to work out the problem that they were facing; but that was wishful

thinking Bryce knew he messed up but he had to know, he wanted to know, he

deserved to know the truth.

"We will deal with that;

what were you doing for 3months at the hospital Iris; no contact no nothing

what was I supposed to think"

Bryce wiped a tear

off his eye and he looked remorseful he was filled with confusion and hurt "don't

you think I deserve to know?" his voice cracked at the last word.

"Remember the first

week when I told you I wasn't okay and I went to the hospital"

Iris gained back her

composure and decided she was going to jump in head first she had too there was

no other way, he deserved to know the truth even though he hurt her.

"The week we hit the

rocks and you were way too evasive and I got the call from work and decided to

go without telling you "Bryce responded quickly he really wanted to know what

really happened, so he could make sense of how they got to that point they were

at now.

"yeah the week you

found me difficult "she walked to the kitchen got a glass out of the cabinet

drank some water and she took a deep breath. Bryce got even more impatient.

"Just tell me already!

Or what do you want me to walk out again; I will walk out on us this engagement

if you don't come clean with me" Iris took another big gulp of her water and

relived, what she wouldn't wish even on her worst enemy.
