I stretched and yawned as I gently woke up. I
shut my eyes at the bright light for the first
time before i managed to open it again. The
day was bright and clear. The rain had passed.
I tried to seat up and that’s when I noticed a
suit on me. I didn’t bring any coat or
whatsoever. My sweater was wet and I had to
even take it off so whose is this? I turned to
Blayze who was still asleep with his arms
folded and resting on his chest.
Will it really kill him if he just relaxes? I sniffed
the suit and it smelled just like Blayze’s
perfume…of course its his but…but how did it
get on me? I didn’t take it and Blayze…Blayze
couldn’t have possibly put it on me on
purpose…or could he? Why? Does he actually
care about me? Really!? I’m confused but
yet…strangely happy about it.
I saw myself sniffing the suit once more
before I smiled to myself. You do have a soft
side to you Blayze afterall.
I drew my face closer to his. I wanted to
observe every feature on his face for no real
reason at all and again…I know that was
strange. Anyway, better do it now than when he
wakes up and get all cold and icy again. I just
wouldn’t want to take a look at his face.
I stared at his face starting from his forehead.
” How can someone keep such a straight face
even while asleep? ” I wondered to myself in a
whisper. His eyebrows looked a little bit
scattered. It won’t hurt to adjust them.
I stretched my hand and slowly brought it
towards his eyebrow…he immediately opened
his eyes. I felt frozen at the moment with wide
eyes. How would this look like to him? My
face is just four inches away from his and my
hand…an inch away from his left eyebrow! Oh
this is so embarrassing! There was silence as
if time had frozen between us for about a
second before I quickly drew my hand away
and turned my head away from him to finally
Oh dear lord! I bit my lower lip in regret to my
action. I have to change the topic or just say
something to lighten the awakward mood.
I turned my head back to him and he was just
sitting up and adjusting his seat back to
” Thanks for your suit. It really made me warm.
” I told him with a smile.
Still with the same award winning straight, icy,
emotionless face, he snatched the suit from
“I didn’t put it on you. ” Really Blayze!? Are you
going to deny it? Okay…Two can play that
“Fine, whatever you say Mr Norman…” he
didn’t let me finish my sentence as he tried
starting the car and luckily it started but that
was rude of him to cut me off like that.
Well…at least we can head home and I can
have a nice hot shower and not see his face
so much again.
He stepped on the gear but the car refused to
move forward for some reason. He finally
decided to check out what the problem was.
He opened the door and just stared at the
“What? What’s wrong? ” I asked him but as
usual, he ignored me. I decided to open my
own seat door and my jaw almost dropped in
surprise as to what I saw. The entire ground
the car was on has turned into a serious mud
just overnight because of the rain. It was going
to take a miracle to get us out of here.
” Get down. ” he suddenly spoke.
” I’m sorry what? I think I just heard you say
that I should step into this mud.” I told him
with a raised eyebrow. He just syared blankly
at me. I think I’ve won.
” Get down. ” he repeated again.
” Okay Blayze, what’s your problem today? Why
do you want to do this to me…”
” Get off the car and push it from behind! ” He
raised his voice a bit.
” W-what…wait, aren’t you the one supposed to
do that? You push and I’ll drive…”
” Caden don’t make me push you out of this
car! I’ve got to be at the office and you’re
wasting my time. ”
” Wasting your time!? I can’t push this car
especially in this slippery mud.” I told him the
“I won’t have you drive my car so do as I say!”
” If I lose this business deal then I assre you
that your father will also lose his
properties…starting with his company. ” he
finally showed his true colour. He finally
showed that he was fury afterall. He really
doesn’t have to blackmail me all the time with
Blayze knew very well that dad means so
much to me and I can gladly jump into a lake
of fire for his sake and that’s why he keeps
using him. I stared hard and long at him.
” You’re such a jerk! ” I told him the bitter truth
by staring right into his eyes before I turned to
the mud. I gently put my feet into the liquid
soil after taking off my sandals. The mud
reached up to my ankle.
I dragged my leg as I walked to the back of
the car. It felt disgusting but fun in another
“Okay. Try driving again! ” I yelled to him as I
took my position behind the car. He did start
the car, and tried to drive out.
“Ahhh…” I screamed as I tried with my hands
to dodge the mud that the tyres sent
backwards at me. Finally, Blayze stopped and
my face, downwards was completely covered
with yellow clayey mud. I felt like crying at the
moment. My poor white singlet.
Blayze came down from the car and saw me.
” Push harder.” Was all he said after staring at
me. He turned to go back into the car but hell
no he’s not going to.
“Push harder!?” I exclaimed angrily at him
which made him turn back to me.
” Oh I’ll push harder…” I told him as I bent and
scooped quite a handful of mud into my
” What are you doing? ” He asked with
” …With you!” I completed my sentence as I
threw the mud at his sky blue shirt.
It was a huge mess. Oh yea! Strike one for
He gasped with wide eyes and seeing the huge
stain on his shirt.
” Caden! ” He yelled my name angrily.
” What…oh wait I’m sorry. Let me get that for
you. ” I told him with a fake sorry face as I got
closer and rubbed my hands on his shirt.
” Oh yes…that sure feels good, doesn’t it? ” I
told him as kept rubbing my muddy hands on
” Stop! ” he ordered as he took hold of my
arm. I actually stopped but stared at him
loathely in the eyes. He was angry. I know he
is. He bent and scooped mud into his hand
and poured on my head.
Okay, that’s it! I immediately used all of my
might and pushed him. He would have survived
but he lost his balance and fell right ob th mud
with his back flat. I gasped as I laughed. I
wasn’t really planning for him to get so much
mud on but now he actually has it on…its fun
He quickly sat up and drew my arm making
me fall right into the mud as well. Well…this
was going to be a mud fight or should I
