🌺🌺Beck Oliver’s POV 🌺🌺
Me: come on Tessa. Let’s get going
Tessa: I can’t find my sunglasses!!
Me: you’ll take mine
Tessa: then what would you wear!
Me: I can manage
Tessa: thank God. Found it!
She came out with the sunglasses
Me: better. Now let’s go
I held her hand and we walked out of the house together. We got on the motorcycle and wore our helmets then zoomed off to the beach. We parked at the lot
Tessa: daddy, I think our neighbors are around
Me: really? Since when?
Tessa: this morning. I actually spoke with one of them. A boy
Me: a teenage boy?
Tessa: about ten or eleven years
I breathed in. Thank God we’re not gonna be living next to a freaky teenage boy
We strolled to the boat stand, hand in hand
Tessa: daddy… When can I have a boyfriend?
Me: when you reach eighteen
She began to laugh
Me: why are you laughing?
Tessa : daddy, did you hear me at all?
Me: you said when can you have a boyfriend
She laughed again
Tessa: I said where could be the bathroom
I started to laugh. I seriously heard wrong. What is wrong with me?
I was still laughing when I looked up and saw the shock of my life. My eyes widened and my feet refused to move. My blood became really thick and hot.
My hand slipped from Tessa’s.
I couldn’t believe it. Could it be a look alike?
No way, the face is way too the same.
I wouldn’t have believed it to be her if she wasn’t as surprised as I was. Her eyes held shock and unbelief.
I however didn’t let myself believe it. I closed my eyes for a few seconds then opened them
Tessa: are you okay?
I looked down at her then squatted
Me: yeah… I’m good baby. I just need something to drink. Why don’t we grab a drink?
Tessa: dad, our neighbors are here, we’re supposed to be boat riding already
Me: I… I’m sorry but… Maybe we should do that tomorrow. Let’s just go enjoy the beach today
She frowned. She was really hoping to do this, but I’m not in my right mind now
Manager: Mr Rudy… Are you okay?
I looked up at the manager standing fifteen steps away
The other lady was standing beside him, with a young boy beside her. A young boy with long hair tied behind, the exact way I tied mine. He was also wearing bracelets.
I gulped down. This must be a silly dream
Me: yeah I’m fine. I’m sorry, we can’t boat today. It has to be tomorrow
Manager: oh. That’s fine.
Then he turned to the two
Manager: Miss Vega, you and your son would have to boat together
My heart dropped
It’s Tori. It’s truly Tori. And she has a son. Oh my God!
I looked at Tessa. She suddenly looked excited as she stared at Tori.
Tori: uhm don’t worry. We’ll just ride tomorrow
Boy: but mom…
Tori: not now Bene. Go play with the neighbors. I’ll be right back
Then she hurriedly walked away. I watched her as she walked into the restaurant. My skin turned sweaty immediately.
I couldn’t believe it. The Tori I thought I lost years ago is alive and well.
I felt like killing myself
But I’m so confused. How is this possible!
The young boy came to us
Tessa: wow, look at the both of you. So alike. It’s like you planned the hairstyle
I looked at the boy. I needed no soothsayer to tell me he looked like me. So much like me
Tessa: Benedict, meet my dad. Daddy, meet Benedict, my new friend
Me: it’s nice meeting you Benedict
Tessa: ohh dad. Snow cones!
She pointed to the stand
Me: you want some?
I brought out some notes from my wallet
Me: you go buy some for you and Benedict
Tessa: thank you
She ran off.
Benedict : can I ask you a question sir?
Benedict : do you know or are you related to anyone by the name, Beck
My blood drained out immediately. I began to need oxygen. I began to feel dizzy and nauseous. I began to dehydrate
Me: I… I… Why do you ask?
Benedict : cause you look so much like him.
I swallowed a lump
Me: what’s your mom’s name?
Benedict : you don’t know her name?
His face showed pure surprise
Benedict : you don’t listen to music right? I forgot Tessa told me that. Well her name is Tori Vega
My breath increasingly hit out my nostrils.
Me: uhm do you have an aunt named Trina?
Benedict : aunt Trina. Yeah I do
Me: and do you know Jade and Cat
Benedict : my mother’s best friends
I palmed my face. This is happening, it’s not a dream.
I raised my head and looked at the restaurant.
Tessa came back with two ice-cream cones
Me: I’ll be right back. You two be safe
Then I ran off to the restaurant
🌺🌺Tessa’s POV 🌺🌺
As we approached the boat stand, I saw Tori Vega and Benedict standing. I screamed internally.
The almighty Tori Vega. It’s Tori Vega. My idol! Oh my goodness!
I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy. I wanted to jump on her and hug her out.
I looked up at dad and saw him locking eyes with Tori Vega. Both were staring at each other.
Oh my God! I hope she’s crushing already. I know how my dad is. Too handsome he can make any lady look twice at him.
I really wish they fall in love. She’d be my step mom and Benedict would be my step brother.
I went to get ice-cream and I gave the second one to Benedict
Dad ran off to the restaurant
Benedict : is it me… Or my mom and your dad are acting weird
Me: you noticed too. They kept staring at each other. I hope they fall in love and get married. We’d be siblings
Benedict : sounds fun. Then I won’t be left alone when mom goes on tour
Me: and you look a lot like my dad. Did you see the resemblance?
Benedict : yeah I did. Let’s forget about them. Let’s go watch the surfers 🏄
🌺🌺Tori Vega’s POV 🌺🌺
I wiped the tears that were streaming down. The more I wiped them, the more they fell. I was so confused. I didn’t know what was happening
Was nature just trying to haunt me? Why would he bring someone who looked exactly like Beck my way.
The old wounds that I thought were healed up got injured again. All my old pains came flowing back.
The pains I felt when the police kept telling us that they still couldn’t find him. The pains I felt when I first had Benedict at eighteen, when I looked at him and cried because he had no father to call his own.
I felt hated by life. The only comfort I had was my dad and music. Cat had gone to face her career and so did Jade. I was the only one left, a single teenage mother.
I wouldn’t have felt pain at all if Beck was beside me.
Now I’ve seen someone who looks like him. I thought it would be him. But then the person is something Rudy. I don’t know his first name. And he has a daughter. And he looks thirty five or so
Beck should be just twenty-eight. Same age with me
I heaved a dry sigh as I wiped my tears again
Me: Beck… Please… Come back… Come back I’m begging you…
I broke down crying. I was in the garden and since it was sunny, it was just me
🌺🌺Beck Oliver’s POV 🌺🌺
I entered the restaurant and looked around. No sign of Tori. I looked through all the restaurant but didn’t see her
I sighed sadly. Where could she have gone to?
I looked at my side and saw a pavement leading to a garden.
I went through it and opened the door, I saw her figure in a corner. She was standing under a shade.
I looked at her, I didn’t know how to approach her. What should I tell her? How would I even start?
I walked gently towards her with my hands in my pockets. A metre from her, I cleared my throat.
She looked back with a jerk. Her face was pink and wet.
She’s been crying
Tori: Mr.. Mr Rudy
She quickly cleaned her face
I stared intently at her. She’s grown into a very beautiful woman. Her body has changed. So angelic. I could worship this goddess
Her eyes widened
She didn’t say anything
I got closer but she moved back
Tori: please who are you?
I didn’t answer. Who exactly I’m I?
Tori: you’re Mr Rudy right? My neighbor
Me: no.. I’m Beck… Beck Oliver
Tori: no.. Beck is dead. He disappeared ten years ago and he never came back
I held her hand and pulled her to me. I looked into her wet eyes. I could see hurt and want. The want of knowing the truth
Me: what happened? I thought you died Tori. I thought that accident took your life. What the heck happened?
She stared at me with disbelief
Me: I ran away when I heard you didn’t make it. I lost my mind. I just wanted to leave. I couldn’t bring myself to think you were really dead. I entered a truck and crossed the border. Ever since then, I’ve been here
She wiped the tears that fell
Tori: and after you found out I was alive. You still didn’t come back. You left me to suffer being a single mom… I hate you
She jerked her hand off mine and hurried away. I felt hurt
Me: wait Tori.. Tori please wait…
I ran after her and grabbed her by the waist. She struggled to let go but I won’t do that, not again.
Me: stop it. Stop it please!
She stopped struggling but didn’t stop crying. I held unto her tight, resting my chin on her shoulder and listening to her sobs.
Me: I’m sorry… I didn’t mean to stay back. If I had known, I would have come back for you
Tori: I won’t believe you on that. That you didn’t know.
I left her and she faced me
Tori : Beck, Benedict and I are very famous. We’re all over the internet. We’re all over TV. How wouldn’t you know? Just say you were contented with your wife and daughter. That’s why you neglected me. You left Benedict to be a fatherless boy. He always wanted a dad, not knowing the bastard has his own family somewhere else
Me: Benedict is my son?
She scoffed and walked away. I couldn’t move
Did she get pregnant?
That explains the striking resemblance between Benedict and I.
I looked as she walked out of the garden
Me: Tori… Wait!
