A quick note: forgive me for different point of view I keep changing in this chapter because i keep forgetting what point of view I'm using because I did not write this in one day. But i read it again and again it doesn't look confusing to Me anyway. if it is confusing, im so sorry man.
After Arthur get out from the room. He walk quickly randomly to who knows where. He just need to get out from there. Finally he stop to take a breath. He looks around where he is. He have no idea where he is. It looks like just another hall way with many more rooms. He didn’t care where he is. He just need to get out and take breath and think what the just happen.
“What the hell just happen ?!! Did I just what to kiss (name) at t- the n….. B-but why? Why would I want that. I know she is my wife but I don’t love her and definitely don’t found her attractive at all. She is fat, over weight and a- and pretty in her own way. Arthur take deep breath and let go. He sit down and lay back against the wall. Arthur having a flash back moment. Remembering you. She is nice, kind, she have this beautiful smile and she is FAT ! but… b-but she is like no other woman I’ve date before. I remember her just sleeping next to me at the airplane. It was adorable, she got this cute snore. It wasn’t loud it was very delicate. This thought made Arthur smile a little. She always been nice to me and very patient even do I hurt her feelings a lot more but she still … Arthur took another deep breath and let go. It is like she really loves me……. After a long thinking he finally snap. OH MY GOD! What is wrong with me. Am I blushing. What the Hell !… how can I fall in love with a women like her. She is nothing. She is fat fat FAT !!! Remember all women are the same They just want MONEY !. But (name) is already rich. She is even good doing business. In fact the reason I got to go this honeymoon thing is because of her. She did a really good job. Now Arthur have no idea what heck he is thinking. Arthur move his hand to his face and cover it. He screams enough to make him self turn red. “ This is stupid. I am just confuse, yeah that’s right. I am tired that’s all and I think I need a drink to forget all of this thinking. Thinking of name make his skin crawl.. Ergghhh I need a lot of drinks to forget about this. What the heck I was thinking, she is pretty Hah Hah.. That’s hilarious.
Finally he heads to bar or he calls it the pub. He pull out his credit card and drink all the fine wine whiskey you name it he drinks it all. He even drunkly treat everyone in the bar. “ hey everyone the drinks on me !” swaying his drinks up in the air and everyone cheer. They are this two beautiful girls look at Arthur. Arthur gives them a wink. The two girls giggle. He though. “ This is what I need two Hot girls… hehehe…hick ..hehehe…hick…….
You are waiting for Arthur to get back until you started to feel sleepy. You yawn and starting to lay down on the bed. Where is he why is he not back yet ?. I hope he is okay. You didn’t call him because he forgot to bring his phone when he suddenly dash out. You click the remote changing every channel you see. “Hmph.. There is nothing interesting and I’m bored”. You look at the clock at the wall opposite of you. “It is midnight already where is he?” Finally you give up on the tv and switch it off.
You blankly stare at the clock. You just hear silent and darkness in your room but there is beautiful moonlight shinning outside your hotel sliding door at the balcony, giving you a little light in the room. The atmosphere finally consumes you making you fall asleep….
Arthur finally reach to the hotel room. He struggle a little opening the hotel door because he is drunk. After succeed opening the door, he just push the door to close making the door slam shutting it back but not loud enough to make you wake up. He’s so drunk he does not care even you in the bed. He walks clumsily to the bed and looks at you and finally he suddenly collapse next to you. He is laying on his stomach. He is directly looking at you. You are already in a deep sleep tired of waiting Arthur. You are asleep facing him.
“Hicks…. Hick…. This is your fault …. Making me like this….” Arthur says it not in a loud or whisper voice. He said it in a tired voice which not loud enough to wake you up.
“ The two girls in the pub …. Didn’t even want…. Me….impossible Riiiight? I never get reject Eveeeeer…. Is this stupid ring… I can’t even pull it..haha… its stuck……………………..
The room is dark but lighten by the moon. The moon lights up the bed and you. The light angle just right enough to see your face. Arthur sees you in the beautiful moon light. Arthur stare at you blankly suddenly he forget what was he thinking before. His hand suddenly move to your face almost like reflex. He stop, thinking what is he doing but he continues he poke your cheek. He didn’t even realise what is he doing because he is so drunk.
“ Hmmmm…. You are kind of…. cute and soft” poking you again. He suddenly have an urge to touch all of your face but decide not to because that would be impolite to disturb you in your sleep. Finally everything he sees is blurring and slowly turning to black.
The last thing he see is your face. What a great thing to see before he falls into a deep slumber
The next morning, you open your eyes slowly accepting every light entering your eyes. You finally can see clearly and suddenly you realise you wake up to see Arthur face in front of you. You in shock. Seeing his face close to yours. You blush really hard. If you see yourself right now it must be total red. You having an internal screaming inside your head! “ AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA !”
You get up in a sitting position quickly. “OMG, me and Arthur sleep together for the first time !”
You let out a small squeal you cannot contained it anymore. Arthur shift a little but did not wake up. You sigh in relief. You started to get up and get ready for the day. Finally you done you left your room.
An hour later.
Arthur finally shift again and again until he finally wake up. “Arggggggggggggghhhhhhhh…. My head!” He open his eyes and look around. He growl again. “ What happen last night, I don’t remember. Why is the room so bright!”. He slowly starting to get up. He sit in his bed look around trying to get his shit together. “oh yeah now I remember I was drinking and …………. Hmmm…. Everything so blurry. Why did I drink again?
His head is still pounding hard. “Aghhh… where is ( name) ?” He suddenly realise you were missing.
“ (Name) ( Name)….. auch forget not so loud”. I need aspirin quick. He looks at the curtain open at the sliding door shinning bright the room but first I need to close that curtain. It killing me slowly.
After he close the curtain. He go back to bed. “ Aahhh…. I need aspirin and tea !” He sigh. “but I don’t want to get out of bed yet”.
Suddenly Arthur hears the door open quietly and close back. He look at the direction of the sound came from and sees (name) come back with some stuff. She finally see Arthur, she looks at Arthur with glee.
“Good Morning Hubby! It’s a beautiful day outside …. Aahh why is the curtain close we should open it”
Arthur quickly shut his eyes close with his hands. “Aghh No , I have a hangover, do not disturb the curtain”.
“Opps, right I forgot you went drinking last night right, so bought just the right stuff for you.”
“So that’s where you been going buys some groceries?”
“ Aaa… yes….” She doesn’t look at him when saying that. Arthur thought it’s weird like she hiding something. She quickly get out something out of the plastic bags. She looks at you.
“Look I got aspirin and breakfast, I thought you might too tired to get out since you have a hangover so get it for you.”
“Wait how do you know I get a hangover?”
“Oh, it is because you smell really…….bad. You smell like alcohol and bad decisions”. Again she’s blunt out. She says that like a casual thing to say. It made Arthur wants to chuckle but holds it in.
“Yeah, I think I made a bad decision but I don’t remember why I drank. Can I have my aspirin now, Having this a straight conversation with you it’s really hurt my head”.
She gets a glass of water and take the aspirin. She sits right next to Arthur give him a glass water and aspirin. She doesn’t seem to move from that spot. Looking at Arthur without even blinking. After Arthur drinks the medicine, he notice (name) looking at Arthur for quiet along time.
She quickly turns away blushing really bad. “ Ah… nothing”. She quickly get up and start getting other stuff. She shows two cups at her hands.
“ Do you want coffee or tea ?”
“ Tea please”
She give the tea to Arthur and sit right next to him again.
“Great I was hoping you get the tea. I prefer coffee for my morning routine anyway”.
“Pfff… you are so like my step brother Alfred every morning he made coffee the whole kitchen smell like one too. Of course my Dad James and I complain at him. Sooooo American”.
“Woah, relax man I have my preference doesn’t mean I hate tea. I like tea. I drink them too just not my usual drinking.”
“Oh really, than in that case I would love to show you what real tea is. Back in England we have this shop it has t- th…. Uh… umm never mind”. Arthur cut his own words, he suddenly realise what is he doing. Arthur almost open up to (name) and he almost Almost like it. He thought to himself. “What the hell am I doing? Am I starting to get comfortable with (name)”.
(name) enjoys that she and Arthur finally talk like normal people and it was progress but to bad Arthur shut himself back. (name) confuse by Arthur action. The room get quiet again and it is an awkward silent between them.
Kirk………….. kirk………….. kirk ………………. Kirk…………….kirk
“So ….. umm... I guess that’s it than. I’ll think I go out for a while and might be back on lunch hour”.
(name) quickly get up get her stuff and ready heading for the door. “Um I got breakfast for you as well the room services will sent up any minute now”.
(name) almost reaching the door and stop. “ Oh , we can have lunch together if you want”. She smile and wave “Kay Bye”.
“(name) wait where are you going ?” before any answer respond the door is already close shut. Making the room even gloomier has it already is.
“ I guess I deserve this for shutting her out and for leaving her yesterday”. Arthur sigh. “ Well who needs her anyway, I feel so much happier now she is gone from my sight”.
Arthur lie to himself. He hates sitting here alone and his head pounding even more after (name) left. This room feel a little cheerful when (name) is around.
You are walking around in the garden. The hotel have a café which the café has a mini garden. You are waiting for your appointment meeting the manager who is in charge making your special plans for you and Arthur. Since this is a secret plan. You have to leave Arthur like that even do you don’t want to. After all this for the great of good of this marriage. You wait and wait. After five minutes you get message from your phone.
*Sorry Mrs Kirkland, I have a lot of problems in my hands right now, I will contact you back. I am really sorry. I know you pay a lot of money for this but I am too busy for this morning, I will make it up for you Mrs Kirkland.
You sigh. Looks like you need take a rain check on the specialplans for Arthur. You reply to the message with simple okay. It is no use on complain about his management. This is not his fault anyway. Looks like you have to deal with Arthur on your own.
You started to feel tears down your cheek. “Huh what is happening, am I crying?”. Emotional Overload perhaps?
You wipe your tears with your hand. You decided to take a walk around the garden but suddenly you feel your shoulder someone hands behind you. You stop and turn around and you see Francis.
“bonjour il papillon, what are you doing here all alone. Where is Arthur?”
“ He is here but not with me”. You take one step back.
“ Oh really, is he meeting some else perhaps maybe another women”. He step closer to you.
“ What no, he just in his room resting! Why wold you think something like that ?”.
“Oh nothing….” You see his smirk. “ Do you know he used to be playboy”.
“ Yes, but he doesn’t do that anymore, he is married”. You started to walk away from him. He grabs your arm and pulls you back”
“wait papillon, I am very sorry. I did not mean that in a rude way. I am here actually searching for you to apologise for my behaviour yesterday”.
“ Oh. Apology acceptant than. Now excuse me I am leaving”.
“Wait, please let me be a company for you, I sense that you need someone talk too perhaps. Perhaps I can help? You look trouble.”
“No need” You keep walking forward, you still can hear footstep behind you but you ignore it and keep walking. You keep walking until you reach the hotel lobby. You turn your head a little to peak and you still see Francis.
“You know I am still going to follow you making sure you feel better.” Now that comment made you wonder what the heck does he still need me? I already accept his apology and now making sure I feel better. What for? He keeps changing the reason why he follows me.
You finally stop and face him again. “What do you really what Francis? First you say you want to apologise to me and I accept your apology but now you keep following me because you want to make me feel better? Why? There is no reason to. I just met you, why would you care about me. “
“Oh my papillon do not feel sad. You see I can never see a women such like yourself get hurt especially it is from Arthur.”
You didn’t realise tears coming down from your eyes when he said Arthur’s name.
“W-what. What are talking about he never hurt me… just”
He gently touch your face and wipe the tears away with his hand.
“Just he does not love you. Am I right”
“No No he just j-just….. ….”
He take your hand and hold it by his chest.
“ (name) come with me and I’ll show you how a real men treat a woman right and bonus have a great time with me
You pull your hand back. “ No I can’t….. Arthur warn me about you and he said to stay away from you”
Francis seem amuse seeing (name) reject him so quickly. No woman ever done that before but he knows how to get them how lure them in especially naïve girl like (name). He see you take a step back but quickly grab both of your shoulder and pull you closer to him. He is so close to you, he leans in to your ear and whisper something and finally you give in, you show quick node in agreement. He hold your hand gently and pulls you. You follow him.
But little did you know in the background of shadows someone is looking at both of you. Snapping photos secretly.
Later that day
Arthur feels a little better after the medicine kicks in and get his little rest. He finally get ready for the day. He looks at the clock it is already almost two. He is feeling hungry. He remember you said about having lunch together. He thought about it and finally decide to have lunch together with you than alone. He hates being alone with people here plus he feels really bad about this morning. Having lunch together it won’t give any weird ideas it is not showing he cares for you or anything, he just want to eat and have a company that’s all. He calls you using his cell phone but it seem no one pick up. He message you instead. He waits for your reply for a couple a minutes finally the phone rings back. He quickly grabs his phone without looking at the contact number.
“ Hello (name), if you are done with whatever you’re doing maybe we can have that …. Lunch together” He cringe at that last word. He tries so hard making sound it is like nothing.”
“Oh hello Daarling, sorry I am not your fat wife. This is Britney silly, how about you forget that whale and come meet me ~~~~ I just bought a new lingerie wanting to try it out”.
“ What the….. Britney! Why are you calling me, and this is my private number. How did you ……”
She immediately cuts Arthur off. “ It is a secret besides I’m calling you for a really important business.”
Arthur notice she talks all nice and smooth but he knows her to well. She acts all nice and flirty just to get what she wants. He knows to well she just pretending.
“ Look I don’t have time for you. Whatever business you trying to pull off just forget about it. Plus, I am on my honeymoon with (name). Can you hang up already I need to let my phone line clear for (name).”
“ Aghh!!..... (name) , (name), (name). Stop pretending to care about her. She definitely over you right now!”
“ What are talking about Britney?” Arthur notice she control her breathing back.
“ Opss, my mouth just slip…hehehe. Look, if want to know more I suggest bring my money like you promise to me and I want extra for the juicy info on (name)”.
“What…. How do you know where I am I can’t just ……..”
“ Oh right, I am actually here. I am waiting at the hotel entrance. Oh and forget about (name) she won’t be calling you back. She definitely busy.”
Then she turn off her phone. Arthur tries to call back. He wants to know what happen to (name). He scares that Britney might did something awful to you. Looks like her phone just turns to voicemail. He immediately tries to call (name) again, again and again for making sure, hoping Britney just lying. This making Arthur more panic, (name) not picking up at all. He quickly get up and left his room.
He finally reach the hotel lobby and see Britney at the hotel entrance. She wearing something very revelling. Britney see Arthur quickly run at Arthur jump on him. Hugging him tightly Arthur was shocked. Arthur quickly push her off.
“This is strictly business remember”.
“Oh my Sweet, you no fun anymore” She grabs Arthur arm and hugs it tightly pulling Arthur at the near Café. She just drags him forcing to sit down. She sits down across Arthur. She order something. Arthur doesn’t care to have anything. She is getting on his nerve. His patient is running really low. If she keeps going like this, wasting his time. She is going to get it.
“What’s with the face honey, what? Don’t you like what you see” Britney smile flirtatiously at Arthur.
“Cut to the chase. You wasting my time Britney. Where is (name) What have you done to her?”
“Arthur don’t be mad. It is not what I do to (name). It is (name) doing something” She’s smirk while saying that just to make Arthur even more furious. “But I’m sure you don’t care whatever she’s doing is not like you love her or anything”.
“Stop playing games Britney!” Arthur fist already curl up tight.
“Oh fine, if want to know so badly about your whale, just pay up” she puts one of her hand out
He takes out a thick envelope from his jacket. He puts it down on the table and slide at her.
“Here take it, the money is in the envelope. Now tell what it is about (name)”
She take it and open a little just to peak. She smile after seeing the money. She puts away the money in her handbag and she pulls out a different envelope. She slide back at Arthur.
“Here, this is what I know. She probably having the time of her life. You should forget about that whale”.
Arthur take the envelope and open it. He is in shock seeing photos of (name) and Francis together.
“W-what, how, when is this happen ?”
“Don’t be shocked Arthur. This is bound to happen of course she is going to cheat on you. You never care about her, you never love her, and I bet that you never even touch her. Of course she doing it with Francis. He is the only man would fuck anything. Waiting for the husband to do all that. Hah, what joke am I right. Hahahahahahahahaha she’s a whale. Arthur doesn’t seem to move, he still keep starring at the picture.
How about we have our own little fun Sweetheart, after all she is a whale.
She reaching Arthur’s hand and he quickly push her hand away. Rejecting her
“Stop calling (name) Whale !! She is a better woman than you ever be. She will never cheat me and I won’t do that to her as well.”
He stand up, look anger in his eyes.
Now, tell me where is (name) I know this all you and Francis doing. Don’t let me repent. Where is (name)
Aghh fine she is with Francis in his room. 2506 that’s where you fine them.
He quickly gets up and left her.
She scream at Arthur.
“She is really with Francis really. I am not LYING!,”
"She whisper to herself “What an idiot, prefers her than me. Whatever, at least I got my money, I can always find another pocket money.
Arthur quickly run to Francis room scared of what is happening to (name) hoping Francis does not touch you yet or worst. He finally reach at the floor level. He walks quickly focusing on ever door number searching the right one.
He finally found the right one 2506. He really out of breath but he doesn’t care any of that as long you are unharmed and safe. He take a deep breath taking everything in. He finally realise he should not just knock down someone else door without actual proof what happen if this was just a set up. He knows Britney very well she will do anything to get her money and (name) will never cheat on me. She loves me right? Maybe I should knock on the door just to check on everything. Yeah this is very rational way thing to do. He take another deep breath and finally reaching his fist to the door and ………..
“Hmmmm…. This is so good …..” Before he could knock the door he hear (name)’s voice
What the ……….. is t-that (name) voice. Is she … ….
“Wow…. Francis … you certainly know how to make me feel…. happy, I have no idea this is possible”.
“Do you…. What more ?
“I want you…”
“You want me what…”
“I want…. Moree~~~”
“Hohohoho anything for my popilon, How about we take it slow and I show you another special treat of mine”
Arthur really could not take it anymore that bastard is going to pay. How dare he touch (name)!
He take a step back and kick the door down with just one kick.
“get off of her you Frog!, how dare you ……….”
Arthur just about to take his rage upon Francis but stop. Sudden realisation he is looking at (name) sitting down at Francis bed with Francis but not he think what were they doing. On the bed they have ice cream. Many, many ice cream. Different sizes cup, colours and flavour. Her mouth cover with ice cream looks like she taste all the ice cream.
“What the, Arthur! What have you done, why did you kick down the door why didn’t you just knock?
(name) seems very angry at Arthur actions. She sounded almost screaming at him but she control her voice back.
“I was… I t-thought I thought you and Francis were …… cough cough… ummm.” Arthur doesn’t know what to say. He knows that he need to cover this up quick.
“ME!, It seems someone forget about the promise she made to me.” Arthur rise his voice.
“ YOU PROMISE ME THAT YOU NEVER GET CLOSE TO HIM. YOU PROMISE ME TO STAY AWAY FROM HIM BUT WHAT DID YOU DO, YOU CAME HERE AND ………. Aaaaa This whatever this is !”
(name) get up and come closer to Arthur.
“ But but, Arthur I can explain, he just j-just tasting his new ice cream flavour for the product his going to sell. I’m sorry”
“ Yeah, Whatever….. I don’t need to listen to this”. He walk over to Francis and stand up to him.” You , whatever you’re doing, I’m not sure what you planning or whatever you’re up to. You better left us alone !” His voice sound bitter at the last word. Francis seems very chill he did not flinch at all but he just look at Arthur directly and say “Your Welcome”
Arthur turn back, grabs (name)’s hand and walk out from the room. Arthur just keep walking with (name). Arthur keep thinking what did Francis said. What did he mean by “your welcome”.
Finally they reach they room. He finally turn around and face (name). She looks like. Oh no, is she going to cry. Her eyes seems a little watery but he didn’t see any tears yet.
“Umm, (name) are you alright?”
“Hmm…” you nod
Bloody hell, it was a quick thinking to avoid his stupidity when he kick down at Francis door. He did not realise he just yell at (name) lashing her out, making her feel bad. He better fix this quick.
Hey, come here. He pulls her to bed. She sits down. Her face looking down not wanting to face him yet. He doesn’t know what he is doing, he just doing it because he thinks it right thing to do? Maybe? Arthur doesn’t know what else to do. He just doing it by reflex, it feels right. He grabs his handkerchief from his pocket and start wiping the cream off. She still did not face him she just keep looking anywhere else but him. The ceiling, the floor, the window. Arthur couldn’t not stand seeing name keeps avoiding eye contact from him. He touch (name) face gently with his other hand and make her eyes face his. This moment it is beautiful.
Arthur did not stop looking at (name) eyes. He never realise they are beautiful. Arthur keep studying your face. Wiping the cream of slowly studying every each of your face, your skin, the colour of your skin, your nose, and your lips. He did not seem to care about the extra weight you’re having now. This moment is just great. The both you having finally sit down and have a moment even do it is silent but it is a comfortable silent.
After the realisation you come back from your magical moment with Arthur. You quickly get up and go to the bathroom and lock it. You left Arthur alone in the empty bedroom. Arthur doesn’t seem to complain or mad at you by your sudden action but he thought it is best just give you a time alone.
“ Besides I deserve it” He said to himself.
