If looks could kill, Alice was sure she would
have dropped dead that instant. Tony was
looking at her, with bloodshot eyes.
Gilbert seemed to have noticed that she
was looking past him and when he turned
he saw Tony.
‘wow, look who we have here. Hi mister’
Gilbert said with a light chuckle.
Alice felt tears drop from her eyes. What a
mistake she had made! She wondered what
made her kiss Gilbert back, why she didnt
push him back and land a heavy slap on
his cheek equally surprised her.
Now Tony, the love of her life was staring
at her with eyes filled with hatred and
Tony took a step closer, his heart beating.
He should have just walked away but he
wanted to ask a question, then leave and
never return. He wasnt the type to fight
over a woman. No matter how much he
loved her, he never fought or quarelled with
someone over her unless he was sure the
woman only loved him. He had thought
Alice loved him the way he loved her but
with the way she responded eagerly to
Gilbert’s kisses annoyed him.
‘Alice i…..’ his voice trailed.
‘oh honey,’ Gilbert said wrapping his hands
around Alice’s waist and planting a soft
kiss on her lips quickly, before she could
protest ‘we have a guest. Lets usher him in
and offer him a drink, dont you think?’
‘let go of me you evil scheming b—–d!’
Alice said pushing him away violently.
Gilbert laughed ‘dont act like that babe.
Remember you dont love him anymore and
moreover he saw the display of affection
between us just now. Isnt that so Tony?’
‘yes, thats true’ Tony replied, tearing Alice
apart the more.
Alice moved a step away from Gilbert and
a step closer to Tony ‘its not what you
Gilbert drew her back ‘of course its not
what he thinks. You already broke up with
him right? He has no right to be angry at
what he just saw’
Alice raised her hand and slapped him
across the face ‘dont you try say anything
‘else what darling? You know, you played
with him long enough. You’ve double dated
long enough. You should end it now and
lets get married’ Gilbert said.
‘double dated? Whats that supposed to
mean?’ asked a confused Tony.
Gilbert laughed ‘yes thats true. Actually,
Alice was never in love with you. She was
in love with me, just me. She just wanted
to have fun. She played with you, for your
money, actually i was the main guy. We
acted some drama together in front of you
in order to confuse you and we did
suceeded, didnt we?’ Gilbert said.
Tony shot Alice a painful look, tears were
welling up in his eyes now. He couldnt
believe it. So Alice had been betraying him
since. But he just had one question to ask.
‘and the baby?’ he asked.
‘the baby isnt yours. Its mine’ Gilbert
