Falling Relations

I slowly opened my eyes, blinking a few times to adjust to the bright white light. I adjusted myself against the soft mattress as I sat upright on the bed. I slowly rubbed my temples as I felt a sharp pain in my forehead. I noticed Scarlet sitting beside me on the bed while Patrick was leaning against a wall with his arms crossed against his chest. But there was no sign of Logan. That made my heart drop to my stomach. So this is it? He doesn’t care for me anymore? Am I a complete stranger for him now? All these just made my headache much worse.

“Hey, Karrie...how are you feeling?” Scarlet asked in a worried tone.

“I don’t feel that great,” I said, rubbing my temples again. “What happened?”

“You blacked out while walking downstairs. The doctor came to check up on you a few hours ago. He said it’s due to the stress and lack of nutrition” Scarlet said

“Oh” was all I muttered as my mind drifted off to other thoughts. I still couldn’t take in the fact that Logan didn’t come to check up on me. I know that things are getting worse between us for the past few days. But don’t I even worth a visit?

“So umm....where is Logan?” I asked looking at Patrick.

“I don’t know. He is behaving very strange lately. He is not even answering my calls. Something is really up with him.” He said, hurt evident in his voice. I can understand Patrick’s position. I know how much it hurts when your best buddy starts ignoring you for no definite reason.

“Do you know-“ Scarlet cut me off by placing her index finger on my lips, shushing me.

“First fill your empty tummy, then shoot your questions,” she said placing a tray of grilled sandwiches, green salad and fruit juice on my lap. I smile a little at her ‘I’m your mom now, so you better have your food before I make you to’ attitude. But I really don’t feel like having my food before clearing up the things with Logan.

“Scarlet I get that you care about me. But please understand. I need to talk with Logan sooner than later. Until then I’m not having anything” I said while lifting the tray off my lap and placing it on the table beside my bed. “But Karrie...”

“Scarlet please...I-I...uhh...just give me a minute,” I said burying my face in my hands.

Scarlet and Patrick left shortly after they realized I’m adamant to meet Logan before having something. I removed the covers off me and slowly lifted myself up from the bed. I walked towards the balcony and leaned against the railing, staring at the reddish evening sky.

Why is my life always a complete mess? Wouldn’t it ever be the perfect life that I’ve always dreamt of? Why does my life always takes the hard way when I prefer the smooth one?

There are many questions that I’m continuously asking myself, desperate to find the answers, though I know they will always stay as an unsolved riddle. I was startled when I heard the door click open. I expected it to be Scarlet, but it was Logan. He walked towards me and leaned against the balcony door, facing me.

“Talk,” He said in a cold tone. I wanted to ask him so many questions. But when his ocean blue orbs stared straight into my dull ones, my mind went blank. I gulped slowly as I searched for the questions in my mind.

After a few minutes of silence, I heard Logan sigh heavily before standing straight, ready to leave. This is my only chance with Logan and I can’t ruin it! I need to ask him something really quick!

“Why?” I finally managed to whisper it out. He furrowed his brows.

“Be specific?” he said, his gaze never leaving mine.

“Why are you mad at me?” I asked, trying my best to conceal the hurt in my voice, but failed miserably. Logan didn’t say anything, rather broke the eye contact and stared at the floor. Okay. He wants to talk, but won’t answer my questions. Great!

I felt the sharp pain rise up my temples as I rubbed them. I suddenly felt dizzy, losing my balance. I lost my stand, slowly releasing my grip off the railing. Then I felt an arm being wrapped securely around my waist.

I slowly opened my eyes to see Logan’s face, filled with worry. His eyes held some emotions which I couldn’t quite understand but were soon replaced by an emotionless one. He helped me to my feet before backing off.

“You must eat,” He said with no emotion. “Not until you answer my questions,” I said.

“Then starve to death,” He said coldly before leaving, shutting the door with so much force that made me flinch. A tear rolled down my cheek, as I processed what he had just said.

Did he just say that? Of course, he did!

I again felt the heaviness in my head. I slowly walked to my bed, sitting at its edge. I saw Scarlet enter the room after a few minutes, her eyes filled with concern.

“What happened?” She asked, sitting beside me. “Logan’s is still mad for some unknown reason,” I said, sadly.

“Hmm... I understood that when he stormed out of the room. Anyways, you said you wanted to talk to him and here, it’s done. Now have your food.” she said in a rather ordering tone. Guess I must really have something then. Hurting myself for someone who doesn’t care for me doesn’t make any sense.

“Okay,” I said, taking the sandwich and nibbling it. As I was done with my food, there was a loud noise coming from downstairs. Scarlet and I walked downstairs to see Logan and Patrick yelling at each other.

“Why are you behaving so strange mate? Whom are you mad at?” Patrick yelled at Logan.

“At Everything Okay, At every fucking thing!” Logan yelled back.

“What the hell exactly is your problem? We could solve it only if you open up” Patrick said, trying his best to calm himself down.

“What’s my problem huh?” Logan laughed humorlessly. “Yes, I just want to fucking help you!” Patrick said, his face turning crimson red in anger and frustration. Logan chuckled deeply before uttering the words that I know he will for sure regret later.

“You want to help me? Okay fine. Then get out of my GOD DAMN HOUSE!!” Logan roared and I swear the giant window shook. We all looked at him, shocked.

“Oh. So that’s what you want huh? Okay. I’ll keep my word and do your favor” Patrick said, deeply hurt before grabbing Scarlet’s wrist and walking out of the mansion.

Logan clenched his fist while closing his eyes, probably trying to calm himself down. Then he just stormed into his room, closing the door with a loud thud, making me jump slightly.
