(I'm so sorry it's taken this long to post this.....it literally feels like it's been forever since I've been on here, but I promise I'll try to be on more often. I know I've had some people request the next chapter so....here it is. :3 Enjoy)
I went home about 4 hours after I left Felix's house. I didn't want to go straight there, so I roamed around a little. My last stop was Stella's house, it was past time to talk to her about all of this. I walked up to her front door and knocked softly at first, then when there was no answer I knocked harder. Finally she decided to answer.
"Hi." she said casually.
"What the hell is wrong with you, Stell?" I asked.
"I don't know what your talking about." She replied.
"I'm already dating him." I stated flatly.
"Finally," She said. "Took him long enough to get his guts." I couldn't help but look at her like she had three heads.
"You should have told me!" I said. She shook her head, smiled at me and winked.
"I swore on my mom's grave I wouldn't say anything, although dating him without really dating him just about killed me." She laughed. I couldn't help it, I laughed too.
"Yea, I could see you drooling over him. I almost made him suicidal because I thought he was cheating on you, so I ran from him." She stopped laughing and looked at me.
"Willow, you almost made him what?!?" She asked. I stopped laughing and looked at her.
"Stell, it's okay, He explained everything to me and we started dating." She calmed down and pulled me inside and to the couch. I sat down and looked at her, waiting for her to say something and after a second she looked at me and smiled.
"What if I told you I found someone for real?" I shreiked and grabbed her.
"Tell me everything!" she blushed and looked at me.
"His name is Julian..." She said. I froze...
"Is he about 6'9 with short brown hair and really buff?" I looked at her slowly. She gaped and my stomache sunk.
"Yes" She said happily. "You know him!" She hugged me. I hugged her back lightly and stepped away.
"Umm, I don't think he's very good for you. I do know him and he is not a nice person, especially when he's mad." I said softly, the flashbacks flashing across my mind.
"What are you saying?" She asked. I looked away and took a deep breath.
"Okay, I can tell you now that you're not going to believe me when I tell you this but I want you to think about what I'm telling you before you say anything." I took another deep breath. "Julian is the man that kidnapped me." I looked at her. Please please please believe me. I wouldn't ever in my life lie to you, you know that." She looked at me for a minute and stood up.
"I honestly don't even want to look at you right now. How do you even know it was him? Did he tell you his name? I don't know how you knew what he looked like, but he would never hurt me." I stood up too and looked square at her.
"He is just using you to get to me. Face it Stell, no one that beautiful would ever just come out of the blue and date you. And yes he did tell me his name and I saw what he looked like."I left, not giving her a chance to answer me. I went straight home and went straight to my room. I checked my phone and saw that Jason had called me. I then realized how much I actually wanted to talk to him. I called him back and he answered on the first ring.
"What's wrong?" He asked protectively. I laughed and shook my head.
"I can't just want to talk to you?" I ask innocently. He laughed.
"Anyone else Yes, you No. You don't work like that." He laughed again. I sat on my bed and looked out my window.
"Well, I just had to trust you first."
So you're saying you trust me now?" I stopped and looked at my hands. Did I really trust him? Was I saying that I believed his story? Was I admitting that I believed I was a princess? I sighed and said the one sentence I had been dreading.
"Yes I trust you, which means I kinda believe the whole princess story." I could hear him sigh in happiness.
"Thank you. I was honestly beginning to give up hope. I was starting to believe you would never come around." I choked back a laugh. Dang it, I was so close to getting rid of him. Oh well. I sat there and talked to Jason for a little while. I hung up when Dad's Limo pulled up into the drive way. I walked around the house until our butler, Sam, opened the door to let Dad in. I walked down the stairs and walked up to dad.
"Hey." I said
"Hello." He responded. I decided not to waist anymore of his time than I need to.
"How long have you known?" I asked. I guess he knew what I was talking about because he answered immediately.
"Since we first got you." He said easily.
"Why?"It was a stupid question and I knew the answer, but I had to hear him say it.
"It was to protect you. I wanted to tell you when you were a little girl so you would accept it a little easier, but you're mother knew it would have still been hard and told me not to say anything." That was news to me, mom failed to tell me that part. I can see why, It makes her look bad. I was satisfied so I turned to walk out but stopped when dad called me.
"Yea?" I answered.
"Are you going to go back with your brother?" He asked, with a scared look in his eyes. For a minute I thought he was actually scared of Jason, but then I realized he was scared of me leaving.
"Your mother and I need you hear, and you can tell your brother he can live here with us too." I shook my head.
"I doubt he wants to live here when we have a castle waiting on us." I realized my mistake to late. I could see in his eyes that he noticed my mistake.
"I see. "We" and "Us" meaning you and Jason. Well, you're mother was right. You really are going to leave." He was hurt, I could tell and I felt horrible. I knew it was to late to take it back but I was going to try.
"Dad, I didn't mean it like that. I don't plan on leaving here for a long time. Not unless you kick me out."
"I would never dream of kicking you out," He laughed.
"You're mother might, but I would never." I hugged him and my phone rang. I pulled it out and saw that it was Stella.
"Hello?" I said slowly.
"Hey." She replied sadly.
"What's up?" I asked.
"I'm sorry." I thought she had finally come to her senses, but what she said next made me go numb. "We can't be friends anymore. Anyone who would lie to me like that is obviously not my friend. I finally found someone who made me happy and you sat there and tried to ruin it. So I think we should stop talking and think you should let Felix know that since he's with you I want nothing to do with him." I stared ahead stupidly.
"Hold up. I don't care if you don't talk to me but Felix has nothing to do with this BS, so there is not one reason you cant talk to him. I don't give a crap if you don't talk to me but leave him out of your twisted up love life and this seriously twisted argument." I was so pissed off words couldn't explain it. So I put her on speaker and called Felix in a group call.
"Yea I'm here." He answered.
"Why did you call him?" Stella asked me.
"Because your going to tell him. I refuse to be the one to say that to him."
"What is going on here?" He asked confused. Stella sighed.
"Felix I decided that I no longer want to talk to your girlfriend, and since she's always going to be around you I can no longer talk to you either." I wanted to cry.
"How did all this start?" He asked. I sighed and told him how I knew her "boyfriend" and how I tried to tell her and she decided that she would take some stranger's side over mine. "Willow, are you absolutely sure that it's him?"
"One Hundred percent." I replied. As soon as I said it I could feel Felix's rage.
"I know you're mad and I know that he will probably come after me again, but we can't attack. He's expecting that, and he is way to strong for an ambush. He's pretty stupid but I'm pretty sure he would expect that."
"No, You're right. Any criminal with a brain would expect it." I thought stella had hung up by that point but it turns out she was still there.
"Do you REALLY believe that?!?" She shrieked. "That is the most ridiculous story I have ever heard, and coming from you Willow of all people. I was right to make this decision." She hung up.
"If I'm right she will come crawling back to me to be best friends because the only reason he's with her is to get to me and ruin my life or kill me. Which is working quite well so far." I was very tired and I didn't want to sleep by myself. So it was either spend the night with Felix and make Jason mad, or spend the night with Jason and make Felix mad. I really ned to spend some make nice time with Jason so that's where I decided to go.
"Hey babe, Im going to get some sleep. I really need it." I said.
"Okay, call me when you wake up."
"I will." I hung up and called Jason again.
