When Loren walked out of the room, Maja took enough time and stare at the large spacious room. It’s so beautiful, she walked to the wardrobe and open it- shocked by what she saw. It like she’s standing right in front of a boutique. Janelle is really into fashion as she was told, she stood in shocked wondering if she can even wear such beautiful and expensive wear like this. She went to the next side and that’s a collections of shoes mostly high heels and snickers. She wondered if can be able to pretend this for a long time. Immediately a call interrupt her from her thoughts.
📞 “what the heck was that? are you now pretending to be like your sister, don’t you think they will notice that quickly. What’s the game all about? Selene asked so worried.
📞 “huh.. you don’t have to worry anyway am in his house already, in Janelle’s room. I feel so bad doing this but i think i have no option,”
📞 “and what did you expect me to tell your dad.. about how you survived. This can’t work Maja just tell him about the real you, tell him that. Janelle is already gone and he will be so happy to know you’re also his daughter,”
📞”i don’t think so, we’ll talk about this tomorrow,” Maja said in a sad tone then hanged up, immediately her mother’s call came in.
📞 “Maja.. where are you now?
📞 “am at dad’s house,”
📞 “what.. which dad? Claire asked confused at first.
📞”Mr. Sebastian, am currently in Janelle’s room at manila. We happen to meet him at his company and everyone thought am Janelle just as you expected,”
📞 “huh… hope no one is being suspicious?
📞”i don’t think so,”
📞”just take care Maja, i will call you tomorrow,” Claire said before hanging up.
▪▪ Loren walked to the sitting room and meet Sebastian busy with his laptop.
“am just trying to fix things back to normal, now that Janelle is back,” Sebastian smiled.
“am so happy too but don’t you see the way she react, i mean like everything seems new to her, she look so confused,” Loren said while Sebastian chuckle.
“it’s been three months now, allow Janelle to be this also her house..
“but who knows if she have lose her memory.. i mean she just came today but i sense something is wrong,”
“are you trying to tell me that an imposter? She’s Janelle can’t you see that for yourself and if you claimed she lose her memory then why did she remember me and even you? Loren don’t just ruined my night,” he said angrily then close the system and he stood up.
“am sorry Seb, am sorry i have to think of this,” she apologies then walked to her room..
The next morning..✨
Maja had breakfast with her dad and he asked her what actually happen to her.
“Selene helped me out and it really a miracle i’m alive without getting any burn although i sustain some minor injuries but am perfectly fine now,” Maja explained.
“i thought i have lose you forever and i promise never to give you out to anyone again. Gaston and his family can go to hell about that,” Sebastian said then held her hands.
“i miss you Janelle. You’re the only family i have left in this world and i was so devastated when you left,” he said.
“it okay dad, what important is that am right here with you,” she said.
“i have talked to Clark yesterday and he was surprised, he said he’s coming,” Loren said while Maja gasped not knowing what to say.
“are you ready to go back to work, JFH awaits you again and also about the competition, you’ve won Janelle and you’re now a star and a diva that’s what you’ve always want right. I guess the earlier the better, i will announced about your return to the public immediately,” Sebastian suggested.
“huh.. but i just arrived, can we leave that till next week.. please,”
‘Why not Princess,” Sebastian smiled.
“just have this week to rest and sort yourself out, the public awaits you,” he said while she nodded with a smile. He pecked her then stood up.
“you see later, Loren will keep you busy,” He said before leaving.
“Janelle! Loren called.
“do you need anything, Vera and Sally are on their way too. I know they will be shocked to see you,” she said.
“yeah, i miss them too,” Maja smiled then stood up and headed straight to her room(Janelle’s room). She found their family album in her closet.
Flipping through the pages she smiled seeing her sister with her dad. They seems pretty close and good together, she wonder how he felt and managed to cope without Janelle for this three months. She remembered what he told her earlier and wonder how she will cope, she’s not into fashion and knows nothing about it, she’s also a bad dancer and definitely people will know that quickly maybe it better if she just back off.
“come in,” Maja heard Loren voice and the door was open, two ladies walked in and they were both shocked to see her.
“Ja..nelle! they said in unison.
“i told you this a very big surprise. Janelle is alive,” Loren said happily while Maja smiled not to make them suspicious.
“oh my! Janelle.. i miss you so much,” Vera ran into her arms.
“what the heck happen babe? Sally said still in shocked then moved closer to her.
“i thought i have lost you forever Janelle,” Sally smiled then hugged her.
“i miss you guys,” Maja said with a small smile, feeling so nervous, she can’t believe she’s talking to high class people like this.
“enough of the questions just give her some space to atleast breathe before answering your questions,” Loren said teasingly making them laughed.
“what the heck happen in Mexico? how did you get here? and you look even more pretty are you sure you’re even involved in this plane crashed? Sally asked teasingly.
“it’s a miracle but one thing i know was that i survived, i was saved by someone who treated me before bringing me back to my dad,” she smiled.
“huh….i guess this call for celebration, we gonna hit the cherry’s club tonight.. right Vera? Sally asked.
“sure.. Janelle sure loves party and i know you’ll not gonna miss it,” Vera chuckle.
“i wished too but i felt so dizzy. That’s the reason why i told dad to let me rest for atleast some weeks before introducing me to the public, please try to keep this a secret too,” Maja said calmly.
“okay.. but i guess you’ve changed a lot,” Sally said.
“change? Maja asked, her heart was beating so fast, maybe they were smart enough to know she isn’t Janelle.
“yes.. you talked so calmly today,”
“cut if off! Janelle is sometimes a calm person but not always,” Vera giggle while Maja let out a smile.
“so what about Clark.. did he knows about this? Vera asked.
“i think so, My nanny called him already,” Maja said.
“he left you heart broken Janelle, hope you guys are never gonna get back together? Sally asked..
“huh.. i don’t think so,” Maja replied confused, she don’t even know what he did to Janelle and she couldn’t ask them because it gonna sound so stupid.
… Vera and Sally spent like the whole day with Maja chatting her about their boyfriends and work, Maja find that boring and all she do is to nods and smile, she told them she isn’t feeling too well that’s why she can’t talk much today.
Later in the evening when they left, she felt so relief- those girls talk too much and she wonder if Janelle is also like them, why will she keep friends like them anyway they seems so cool to her.
Janelle sat down on the couch while Lena (Alvary’s mom) was seated next to her.
“so that is it Janelle, i really admire your friendship with Alvary because he loves you so much and couldn’t stop talking about you,” Lena smiled.
“yeah, just that i think am not actually welcome because of Jordan,” Janelle said sadly.
“i know that, Jordan is always like this but i guess with time she will try to change her attitude towards you,”
“i hope so,”
“Maja…” Alvary walked in holding two leathers bags with Jason behind him.
“Jason,” Janelle smiled seeing him.
“so how are you doing now Maja. Alvary told me you’re recuperating fast and i decide to drop by to visit you,” he smiled.
“thanks a lot, am actually getting better,” she smiled.
“and i just brought more clothes for you,” Alvary smiled then gave her the bag as she took a good look at the them. She knew dresses so well and was surprise to see the classic and expensive dress Alvary brought for her, they were just her type wondering how he get to know them.
“anyway, dinner is ready,” Lena announced then stood.
“where’s Jordan? Alvary asked.
“still not back,” Lena replied then helped Janelle to stand up.
“i will just try to walk on my own,” Janelle replied but Lena held her hand incase she lose balance.
💫They had dinner together and it was already getting late so Jason left and Alvary helped Janelle to her room.
“thanks for the new dresses but you don’t have to spent much on me, am always indoor,”
“it doesn’t matter Janelle, i just want you to be comfortable and i guess it better we go to the Philippine… to see your mom. I don’t want her to get so worried everyone might thought you’re dead,” he said.
“yeah, but i have to recovery first,”
“i know that.. so where actually is your mom staying with your step dad? Alvary asked.
” I miss home so much,” she said.
“so who else did you miss aside from your parents? he asked.
“friends and lots of things you know,” she smiled.
“or maybe you already have a boyfriend somewhere,”
“oh! of course not. I love you and that’s all that matters to me,” she laughed.
“thank you Maja for coming to my life again,” he said.
“i should be the one to thank you a million times, you’ve saved my life. I don’t know what will have become of me if you haven’t save me on time with Jason,”
“yeah and that’s how destiny works. I thought i have lost you and i was damn surprise to see way that way,”
“and i thought you won’t get to remember me,”
“am not so dumb, i still have your pictures and i can still see your smiles, laughter and pretty face even in a thousand years to come i will still recognize you,”
“thank you,” Janelle smile, his words really made her blush already.
.. The rest of the evening seems so good to her because she was with Alvary throughout, telling her stories and lots of jokes which make her laughed throughout the whole night.
▪▪Maja stood at the balcony so nervous, she felt so nervous standing in front Clark. He later came that evening and he seems so shocked and happy at the same time when he saw her.
“thank goodness you’re still alive Janelle, you don’t know how happy i am, at first i thought Mrs Loren was lying but i knew she wasn’t the type who can play such pranks,” he said. Maja just nodded with a smile, she don’t even know how to react to what he’s saying, she don’t know how close him and Janelle are.
“i know you might still feel angry with me but am sorry Janelle…. you gat to believe me. I felt so nervous and each time i remembered you i felt so angry with myself because you left so broken and so angry with me, am sorry babe,” he pleaded then clasped their hand together.
“huh.. it nothing. That’s all in the past,” Maja smiled nervously. She thought whatever his crime maybe he still deserves a second chance and need to be forgiven.
“i almost die and i promise myself once am back their’s no need to hold on to any grudges again,” She said. Clark was so happy- was this really Janelle? she detest him so much back then but now she looks kinda shy and has forgiven him without anything condition.
“thanks! i love you babe,” he smiled then kissed Maja, taking her by surprise….💕
Clark and Maja…💔
Alvary and Janelle…💔
