“Yes, you may come to Olivia.” Fiona was making sure that everything looked clean in her room. Olivia opened her door very slowly without making any noise. Olivia went next to Fiona and smiled at her.

Isabella was not answering her phone. Olivia took her phone and went to Fiona room.“Fiona stops crying, shall I call Isabella to come here now?

“No need Olivia”

Fiona’s face looked ashen and dull.

She told Olivia

Fiona then goes and sleep; I need to be alone for some time”

“What happened Olivia, are you okay?

“Olivia, I feel Jacob is around, I don’t know.”

“Fiona, chill now, please take your medicine”

“Isabella looked at Olivia and did not say a word.

Sushi3809: I would say, it is splendid to see a writer who knows their way around language. I do think, however, that maybe it was a slightly hurried plot line. especially the slightly abrupt relationship between Jessie and Jason. It was an enemies to lovers trope and I just wish you would have let it burn ...
