“so Mr Saltzman, tell me why you married me when you don’t love me “she asked bluntly.
I sighed and ran my hand through my hair.
This woman is really something.
“well… I… Uhm” I stuttered.
How do I tell her?
What if she leaves after finding out the truth?
I would be doomed.
“speak up ” she ordered sternly.
“coz I need you and love you ” I lied and she burst out laughing.
“I truly do love you, I know it sounds awkward but I love you ” I lied, trying to coax her.
“don’t gimme that shit, tell me now ” she ordered.
OK she’s not buying it.
“I’ve already told you, it’s because I love you ” I lied again.
I can’t fall in love with someone like this.
I mean she’s too cheesy and small.
She’s not tall and she’s got dark circles around her eyes.
Doesn’t she sleep?
“Damon Harris Saltzman ” she yelled my full name.
I sighed and raised my hand up in a surrender like.
“well as a successful business man, I can do anything to maintain my reputation ” I paused to look at her expression, It was blank so I continued.
“I got a contract, a very big one but I can only get it if I’m married ” I blurted out and her face etched with hurt.
“so you married me, just so you can fool people that you’re changed and responsible ” she asked and I slowly nodded.
“but why me, why does it has to be me ” she asked with a tear rolling down her cheek then many more and she’s crying.
“cause you seem pretty interested in me, I mean all women are but you seem different, responsible, upholding and I knew right away that you’re the good choice ” I said truthfully.
She sniffed and stood up, coming closer to me.
“you married me for your own selfish reasons, you married me to maintain and uphold your reputation, just for some contract ” she said, amidst tears.
” and you acted as though you truly loved me the day you proposed to me, I’m such a fool to have fallen into your traps, such a fool ” she cried.
“how could I get the thought that Damon Saltzman could change for the better, I’m such a big fool ” she cried and ran out.
It wasn’t my intention to hurt her.
I thought she’d be glad that someone like me married her, I mean I’ve got the looks, power, wealth, everything so what more does she want?
She’s so complicated.

I ran to my room and collapsed on the floor in tears.
He’s a monster, a selfish monster.
He doesn’t care about anyone as long as he gets what he wants.
He doesn’t care about anyone’s feelings, he’d do anything for his own selfish reasons, for his reputation, for power.
How did I even come to a conclusion that I could change him?

How did I fall for such a man?
Katharine Eve Pearls, you’re such a gullible fool.
Why am I so unlucky? Why’s my life so miserable?
First with my parents and now with my husband.
Yes he’s got the money, fame, power and all but the love and care I’ve been craving for isn’t there, it’s still not with me.
I wiped my tears and got off the floor.
Since I’m not needed here, I’ll just leave.
I went to my wardrobe and packed all my things.
I can live it through all by myself, come what may.
I wiped the tears that couldn’t stop rolling down my cheeks.
I carried my luggage and went downstairs.
Almost at the door, I heard his selfish manly voice.
“stop” he said, more like an order.
I froze on my spot and slowly turned to look at him.
He wore just a singlet, exposing his muscular arms.
He wore a short that reaches just below his knees.
His hair was brushed backward and his left hand on the stair hand rest.
OK why am I checking him out?
He stood there, his ocean blue eyes peering deep into mine.
I was lost in his world that I forgot all my pains.
No! I can’t be fooled by him again.
I shook my head and came back to reality.
He smirked and gently walked down the stairs to me.
He stared awkwardly at me, not saying anything.
“Stay here for some time please ” he blurted out and my eyes almost popped out of its sockets.
I mean, did I hear properly?
Damon Saltzman, begging? That’s a first and I feel honoured.
Quit it, you don’t have to be honoured cause he’s begging, he deserve to be on his knees begging.
I was so angry, so hurt.
It hurts to know that you’re not needed, that you’re being used and nothing more.
I wanted to slap him, hit him, yell at him but I couldn’t.
I couldn’t bring myself to do it.
And why’s that?
Cause I love him, I fucking love him.
I love this selfish monster, Damon Harris Saltzman.
“please ” he said again and I sniffed.
” and why should I stay” I managed to ask, my voice barely a whisper.
He looked at me hesitantly for a while and he sighed.
“cause the contract hasn’t been finalized yet and if you leave, I’ll loose it ” he blurted out.
“we can change this to some kind of contract between us too ” he said and I arched an eyebrow.
“I mean I can pay you when we’re done with it all ” he blurted out.
I’m really nothing more to him, he sees me as nothing but a means to uphold his reputation.
Cut the crap, I’m leaving and won’t fall for his traps again.
He can lose the contract for all I care.
I wiped my tears with anger and looked up at him straight in the eyes.
The anger in me melted completely when my amber eyes met with his ocean blue eyes.
I forgot all I wanted to say and didn’t know when I nodded “yes”.
He smiled and went back upstairs.
What the fuck? Did I just agree to stay and be used?
OK Katharine Eve Pearls.
Why am I not able to be hard on him? Why am I so soft?
Now I have to live with him, not as a wife but as a piece of trash to win a contract.
And when he’s done with me, he’ll throw me out of his life for good.
The sooner I learn to forget my feelings for him, the better for me.
Now is time to start a whole new life.
A life of pretence.
I would be able to do this much for my love.
At least he’ll be happy.
I just hope everything goes well.
