Dangerously Obsessed 2.8

Chapter 2
2.8 Hell To Pay: Prettier In Person

Valerie quickly wiped the tears from her face as she stood in front of her parent’s suite. She hated to cry in front of her parents because they always made such a big deal about everything. To them when Valerie was unhappy it was the end of the world. Although their devotion to her was sometimes embarrassing especially when you are in high school and you didn’t picked for school play and your mother has to let the entire school know that you were robbed. Valerie still appreciated their willingness to go to bat for her and she just hoped that when she became a parent that she would be as awesome as they were.

“I hope everyone is decent!” Valerie called out as she opened the door.

Her mother and father started to laugh. “We were about to come looking for you.” Her dad said as he sat on the couch next to her mother flipping through the channels.

“Yeah I am starving.”  Her mother said.

“I saw Dante’s cousin in the lobby think he works here or something.” Valerie said as she sat down next to her mother and placed the food on the coffee table. “I don’t think he saw me though.” She added as she began to take the food out of the bag.

“Are you sure?” her mother asked. “Because we can leave and go somewhere else.” She said.

“No, I’m not about to run from Dante anymore I’m scared of him.” Valerie said sternly. “I saw this really cute guy on the elevator.” She said looking out the corner of her eye to her father.

“Oh were you talking to me?” Her father asked confused when he saw her looking at him.

“Yeah.” Valerie grinned. “See I don’t need your help finding dates.” She said.

“So you two are going on a date?” he asked stunned.

“No not exactly he hinted at wanting to take me out but I was playing hard to get.” She replied.

“Uh huh is that so?” Her father asked with a smile. “See that’s exactly why have parents to force into doing things that you don’t want to do that turn out for the best.” He said.

“Yeah, yeah we will see this is the first date I let you set me up on so lets just see how it goes.” Valerie said as she took a bite of her food.

“They may have been my guy you seen on the elevator.” Her father said.

“Wait, what do you mean that might have been your guy?” Valerie asked stunned.

“Yeah honey, what do you mean?” Valerie’s mother asked.

“Well he is staying at this hotel too.” He replied.

“Are you serious?” Valerie asked.

“Yeah I figured if you said no to the date maybe fate would be on my side and two would run into each other.” Her father said nonchalantly.

“Dad does thing guy know what I look I like?” Valerie asked annoyed.

“I may have showed him a picture or two.” He replied.

“Dad!” she exclaimed.

Chapter 2 2.13 The Other Guy: Fright Night
“I have no idea what I’m going to wear.” Asia said as she and her aunt entered the house. “You sound like you like this guy.” Her aunt said. “What? No way.” Asia replied shaking her head. “But he is cute and I don’t know for sure he killed those kids so I think I should look good just in case.” She added as she plopped down on the couch. “Just in case?” her aunt asked as she sat down next to her. “Yeah just in case he isn’t crazy and he wants a second date.” Asia said. “You like him!” her aunt exclaimed. “Asia you better be careful evil is often cunning and charming.” Her aunt added. “What do you mean by that?” Asia asked. “I mean don’t be fooled by a cute face.” Her aunt replied sternly as she got up and headed to the kitchen. Asia began to wonder, am I falling for this guy? She wondered how much of this attraction had to do with actually liking Giovanni and how much was a side effect of the medallion.
“Aunt Angela I’m going upstairs to do my h…

Chapter 3 3.1 Hero’s and Villain’s: Push
“It’s that necklace isn’t it?” Giovanni yelled as he snatched the necklace from Asia’s throat. “I have powers, do you have them too?” he asked as he stared at the necklace in his hand. Asia did not know how to reply so she just remained silent. Giovanni turned to look at her. “Please, answer me I feel like I’m losing my mind.” He begged.
Asia looked into his big puppy dog eyes and began to feel sorry for him. “Yes, I have powers too.” Asia sighed. “And there because of the necklace.” She added. “Can we get out of my driveway now?” she asked. “Look I don’t want my aunt coming outside lets just continue this date and I promise I will explain.” Asia said. Giovanni was in a daze. He did not move a muscle or speak he just stared out he window. “Giovanni!” Asia yelled.
Giovanni’s lips began to curve into a mischievous grin. “Yeah okay.” He said as he started the car. “So I’m not insane? I have powers?” he asked as he pulled out of the driveway.

Chapter 2 2.12 The One: The Family
“What should I wear to this high profile social event?” Camilla asked. “Don’t worry I’ll have my stylist send something over to the house for you.” Alejandro said as he skimmed through the menu. “Do you know what you want to eat yet?” Alejandro asked as he looked up from his menu. “No, just order me one of whatever you get.” Camilla said. “Okay.” Alejandro replied as he waved over the waiter. The waiter walked up to the table with a huge smile on his face. “Yes sir how may I help you?” The waiter asked. “Let me get two orders of the Gnocchi di ricotta and an order of Focaccia.” Alejandro said. “Yes sir anything to drink?” the waiter asked. “Let me get a bottle of that 1990 Romanee-Conti we just got in.” He replied. “Yes sir.” The waiter said as he took their menus, bowed and walked away. “That a very expensive bottle of wine.” Camilla said. “I know I’m trying to impress you.” Alejandro replied with a smile. Camilla smiled and began to blush. “Is it wor…

Chapter 2 2.13 Faith: Could This Be Love?
Kash went to the limo where Jessica was in the backseat crying. He could hear her outside the limo and he hesitated opening the door. He felt horrible about trying to force the situation. He had only made things worse. Kash was starting to think that Jessica was right her family hadn’t really changed they just saw an opportunity to use her. He got this weird vibe from her mother and sister he couldn’t put his finger on it but they both rubbed him the wrong way. Kash slowly opened the limo door and got in. He wrapped his arms around Jessica as she cried. “I’m sorry.” He said. “I was wrong it wasn’t my place to interfere I just saw how hurt you were and I wanted to help.” He added. Jessica wiped her eyes and choked back her emotions enough to speak. “Don’t you ever speak to me like I’m a child again.” She said sternly as she looked him in the eyes. “And you are right it wasn’t your place to interfere, you have no idea the crap those two put me thr…
