‘I cant do this anymore Aylin! No matter what you say, i’m leaving’ Ximena said.
‘suit yourself! Nonsense’ Aylin hissed and hung up.
Ximena threw the phone in annoyance and burst into tears. She was going to be losing her love of her life again. They were going to be separated again.
Oh! She rested her head on her laps and tried her possible best to stop crying but she couldnt. It pained her that she couldnt really have him. That she couldnt do something dangerous to get him. She hated it.
She wished she had a strong heart. A heart that wont feel any pity for anyone. A heart that had no conscience.
She finished packing bags and decided to take a tour round the house. She sighed, she was going to miss it. And she was going to miss Tony, she was going to miss Maria and Alice. She really wished she could come again and pay them a visit and she really hoped Ecker, her mexican admirer woud still be waiting for her. Even though she didnt love him she was going to manage him. Half bread is better than none.
And she badly needed kids of her own. She was approaching 39 and yet no child.
She went back to her room, looked for a clean sheet of paper and wrote something, then left the house with all her bags leaving the maids and the gateman staring at her in wonder.
‘Maria lets go home’ Tony said tapping her shoulder.
‘is it possible that i stay with her?’ Maria asked shocking him.
Maria smiled a little and reached for Alice’s hands ‘i want to stay by her side for today’
Alice smiled weakly too. Earlier when Tony had left the hospital for God knows where, she and Maria had engaged in a long conversation, jisting about everything and nothing in particular.
Maria was fun to be with though and was very caring.
‘are you sure about that Maria? Remember you need rest too’ Tony said.
‘i can rest here. Infact Alice and i were discussing about something important’
‘really? What is that, i hope you guys were not gossiping me’ Tony teased.
‘we gossiped you alot oo’
‘indeed!’ Tony sighed and left.
Alice turned to Maria ‘so whats the news?
