Sooo I decided to make a short story out of this. The 3rd part of the trilogy (illusions of heart) as the start and this is the second part. It will not be long though. The next part will probably be the ending of it but I shall see. Meanwhile thanks for the views, it means a lot. xxx
Okay so now you may ask, what happened between Krystal and the guy she met…
The story is quite simple actually.
His name is Kris. He is tall enough for her, dark, mysterious features and eyes where you could swim but not drown.
Kris was a business major and Krystal was a finance major. The reason they never met before… he was a senior.
It was least to say that they did not have a connection between each other. In fact they were so beautiful together, overwhelming everyone in the campus.
Both of them did not talk much, everything was quiet when they were together. But the silence filled the space where words couldn’t fit in. Their eyes did all the talking.
Krystal was in love. She loved Kris more than anyone in her life and she was afraid, terrified of this new profound love.
Krystal feared those black eyes who disarmed all her guards and could break in so freely.
But Kris loved seeing her so fragile and so sensitive around him. He loved how Krystal was fierce to the world but so soft when together. It reminded him that they were the same. He loved seeing her laugh over small things. How she would laugh at his terrible jokes, just so he could not feel bad about himself.
She was positive and he was negative. Opposites attract.
“Kris look at what I bought yesterday,” standing in front of the tall, handsome looking guy, Krystal flaunted her new outfit. “Do I remind you of someone?” Her eyes were beaming and her entire being was glowing with love. Even if you were blind, you could see the love radiating from her. It was pure, it was out of this world.
Kris snorted, his heart was swelling at the sight of her beauty “You look like that Sailor Moon girl.” Her smile expanded more, ear to ear; he found it.
“Yes I found this online and since we are both cancerians I bought it.” the necklace in the moon shape reflected from the sunlight.
Suddenly, her cheeks were a shade of pink. Krystal looked down at the small box on her hands, gripping it tightly. Wondering to give it to him or not.
It was a matching jewelry from Sailor Moon, a star-shaped clock, the moon imprinted inside of it. Her affection had reached its maximum height. Her entire being was devoted to Kris and she was so scared, it defied all her logics. Her entire walls and rules were broken because of this simple, yet mysterious guy.
She was afraid though, that this little happiness that had surrounded them will be soon towards an end. The gut feeling in her stomach felt that.
“You and your crazy horoscope.” He clicked his tongue but with a hint of playfulness in it. Kris was whipped by her. If it was anyone else, he would think of the person as stupid; but not Krystal, she was special.
“Oh please you love it when I talk about our signs. Last time I saw you googling scorpio-cancer compatibility.” Krystal fought back and suddenly she had this sudden urge to hug the life out of him… but she couldn’t.
That’s one thing about them both. They never do skinship or display their affection by touching each-other. They are too shy for that.
Kris smiled a bit but Krystal sensed that he was hiding something. His eyes had this kind of strong edge to it. It’s like he is a different person. It was times like this that Kris scared the life out of Krystal.
They were just looking at each other, the time had stopped for both of them. Kris was glaring at her, with so much intensity and curiosity that Krystal felt intimidated. She had seen the bad side of Kris but this, right now, it’s a new side that she had yet to decipher.
“I-I’ll be going now. My class starts in a minute.” Krystal stutters and rushes inside the building. Kris in the meantime just smirked and shook his head.
He loved seeing this side of Krystal, so innocent and pure, not touched by anyone.
Picking up his phone, that had been ringing since they stepped inside the campus, Kris answered in a cold and business-like voice “Yes, I’ll be joining the meeting. I’m on my way.”
“Krystal, how are you doing? It’s been a long time since we talked” Rachel.
Her arch-nemesis. The she-devil. The ex-bff who ruined her life. The two-faced witch. The ungrateful one. The jealous one. The b.itch who made her heartless.
Krystal was reading the book when Rachel approached her.
She sighed because Krystal knew that if Rachel came to talk to her, she either needed something or had found something to use against her. Either way, she was no good, just plain evil.
“Rachel hi” In a monotonous voice Krystal replied, she had enough of her. “I’m busy so next time, maybe” she really did not need to see her face right now, in fact, NEVER.
Ignoring the cold way Krystal was treating her, Rachel continued with the fresh juice she had found “I hear you are in a relationship with someone and not just anyone but with Kris Wu, the descendant of the GE corp. I thought you said you wanted to date someone in your thirties? This fast?” Did I forget to mention that Kris was a rich guy in his twenties, a guy that ladies are more than willing to sell their bodies for him?
Krystal sighed and looked up; she was annoyed by her entire being. “What I do is my business not yours, so stay out of it.” She never responded harshly but this was a time she needed to. Krystal knew that when Rachel had found out who Kris was, she would be after him, especially now that he and Krystal are going out.
Krystal got something than Rachel MUST have it too.
“But I don’t see a ring on your finger. It must be something temporary, after all there are better fish on the sea.” Rachel flaunted at Krystal, who in the meantime was sneering at her.
But she knew she must not show any sign of weakness or else she was doomed, finished, out of the game. So she just ignored Rachel.
“I am meeting him today. My father has something to discuss with his father.” Pulling her hair on the back, Rachel smirked and waited for Krystal’s reaction.
Soon she left because Krystal acted like she did not even exist and Rachel eventually got tired.
But as soon as she left, the gut on her stomach was weighing down on her. She had this bad feeling but she refused to listen to it.
Krystal was scared.
After the classes were over and she had went to her apartment something, or should I say someone was waiting for her. They were three and judging by the looks of their face, they were here to talk business.
Krystal’s world started to crash slowly and then all at once.
In a simple day she lost everything…
