Greg saw the fear in her eyes, it hurts to see her like this, she is no longer the same woman he fell in love with. But he still loves her, just looking at her right now, the pain starts to fade away.
"Please, come closer to me, my love. I longed to hold your hand again, please let me hold your hand just like yesterday once more." He was begging now for her affection and love that was no longer registered in her eyes. The love they shared together was no longer shining in her eyes, what was left in the ashes of love is the bittersweet memories.
Caroline shut off her eyes. Greg is no longer the same guy she falls in love with, he now becomes the shell of his former self. And his illness scared the hell out of her.
"You don't love me anymore? This is so sad," fresh tears start rolling from his eyes down to his face. "Caroline please come closer to me, please let me hold your hand," he begged again.
But Caroline ignored his pleading.
Greg was trying to sit on the bed and his pillow accidentally falls into the floor, he looked at her. "Caroline, can you please, pick up the pillow for me?" he asked with begging eyes.
Caroline comes closer to the bed and picked up the pillow to give it to Greg.
But what Greg did next, took her by surprise because he lunged at her and held her face in vase-like grip between his two hands as his hungry mouth comes crashing down to her lips. Due to his unbelievable strength, he managed to plunge his tongue inside Caroline's mouth and kissed her forcibly while she protested. Caroline pushed his body away from her to no avail. Then she kicked him hard on the groin and he fell sideways banging his head on the wall.
"Ouch!" he groaned in pain holding his head.
"How dare you kissed me like that when you have an infectious disease!" she shouted at him angrily.
"I'm so sorry, my love. I just want to taste your lips again because I miss you so much," he said sorrowfully.
"Greg, this will be the last time I'm going to visit you. I don't love you anymore. I want you to understand that it's already over between us. I already had a boyfriend and we're planning to get married soon," she shouted and glared at him. She hurriedly walked towards the door and opened it, then exited the room, slamming the door behind her.
"Caroline my love, please don't leave me!" Greg was calling for her to come back but his pitiful cries fall into deaf ears because Caroline was already out of the room and has no plan to come back ever again.
He began sobbing hard wanting to drown himself in his sorrow, his body was shaking in anguish.
During that time, Alex was alarmed after he heard a bang in the wall, then shouting ensued inside the closed door. He was about to enter open the door when Caroline come rushing out of the door, nostrils flaring in anger.
'Damn! she looks even more beautiful when she's angry,' he told himself.
Based on the expression of her face something bad happened inside. "What happened inside, Caroline?" he asked.
Caroline glared at him and without further ado, her right-hand move instantly and...PAK!...she slapped him hard in the face.
Alex saw stars for a moment, jeez, her hands were quite strong for a woman, he caresses the area of his face where her hand brutally landed.
"Dammit, why did you slapped me?" he asked in a calm voice. No woman has ever slapped him on the face, not even his feisty wife.
"Why you didn't tell me first that Lucas has HIV/AIDS? Your damn brother kissed me on the lips!" she sent daggers in his eyes, glaring at him while grinding her teeth.
Alex took a deep breath, ah, that's why she's angry...and worst Lucas forces a kiss on her, damn, this made Caroline so angry.
"Please calm down, Caroline. Let me explain...Lucas's doctor told us that HIV can not be transferred to other people by kissing, only through sex, you don't have to worry, you will not be infected with HIV," he assured her.
"Why you didn't tell me first!?" she shouted angrily at him.
"Because, I'm afraid that you won't come to see my brother after you will know of his illness," Alex replied.
Caroline awarded him a death glare. "I'm leaving and I will never come back again. From now on, don't ever call or contact me again when it comes to your brother. I don't love him anymore and I don't want to get involved with you and your brother ever again. You are PARASITES!" she screamed and stormed out of the basement.
Alex was stunned with her outburst.
When she labels him and his brother parasites, it hurts!
He was insulted, it feels like he was being kicked hard in the gut.
This is the first time a woman hurt him verbally and physically.
He closed his eyes for a moment. He can't blame her for her outburst. She's angry, so it's normal for her to act enraged.
He followed her outside.
Caroline can be seen walking towards the gate intending to get out of the place.
Alex was able to overtake her and holds her hand firmly. "I will bring you back to my office so that you can get your car. I'll give you a ride," he said.
Caroline was trying to break free from his hold but Alex was holding her wrist tightly.
"Please don't be stubborn, Caroline!" he said with authority in his voice. "I'm responsible for bringing you back to my office, safely," he insisted.
Caroline released a deep sigh. "Fine!" she glared at him and ambled towards his car that was parked in front of the main door of the mansion.
Alex pushed the button of his remote car key which unlocks the door and Caroline slid inside the passenger seat. Alex gets into the driver's seat and starts the engine of the car.
A few minutes later, the car was already out of the gate and speeding into the highway.
Meanwhile, in the guest room upstairs.
Allison has been looking at the window and saw everything, she was puzzled why Caroline seems in distress and wanting to get out of the gate.
Did something happen inside the basement?
She immediately exited the guest room and went downstairs to find out what's going on.
