Meanwhile at the restaurant.
After Shan had left, I regretted that decision of breaking up with her. Dammit. Why didn't I stop her? Why didn't I go after her? That's probably because my anger took over. Dammit. I didn't mean to make her cry. She probably hates me now. Probably for the best that I didn't go after her though, still pissed. Might've make things much worse if I went after her. Instead, I went back to my cleaning, not hearing Fritz when he came in. "Not now." I looked up from my work. The restaurant was open, but I wasn't in the mood. "What do you want? Food I'm assuming?"
"I walked Shan home." He said simply, giving me a knowing look. Shit he knows.
I groaned, "She told you everything, I'm assuming?"
"Not everything, but she said you broke up with her. She tried to hide it, but I could see she's hurt." He looked at me, "What happened?"
"Mark happened." I put down my cleaning rag, "It's nothing. Something stupid." I tried my best to stay calm for Fritz's sake, however it's not working. Especially since the jerk himself just entered the restaurant. Shit. "What are you doing here?" I asked the outsider with a glare.
"I know you broke things off with Shan. I'm here to make sure that you stay away from her. Now that you two are history, I'm taking her back. She's going to Sunny island with me."
"Over my dead body!" I snapped. "Who said were history? I've broke up with her, yes, but I'm planing on apologizing. And get her back. I'm in love with her dammit. You're not taking her away from me. Besides. Didn't you end things with her in the first place? From what she told me, you didn't care about her. She had told me a lot about her past. And from what I've understood, she doesn't want to go on a unknown island with you. She rather go to Echo village than a island with you." I literally wanted to punch this guy at that moment. However it seemed Fritz had noticed my mood, because he literally pulled me back.
"It's not worth fighting this guy." The farmer reminded me.
"But he—" I sighed, "you're right." I turned to the idiot, "Mark, just get the hell out of here." Before I might actually do something I might regret.
"I'm not going anywhere until I get what's mine. She's coming with me rather you like it or not. I've broken her heart, but I know she still loves me." He smirked, "So let's just say that I'm doing her a favor."
"You really don't have feelings for her at at all?" That's it! Sigh, sorry Fritz. I've lost it. Without thinking, I ignored best friend as I approached Mark, punching him in the eye. Yes, I gave him a black eye. And it felt good. It seemed it wasn't going to end though, because he punched me back. "I'm not letting you broke her heart again." I yelled. "You're playing with her heart and I don't like it. She deserves better than that. I wasn't in Shan's life before, but it's not too late. I'm glad I've met her in the city. I'm glad she had moved here. And I'm not about to let you take away her happiness. I won't let you take her away from her friends. From this town. And from me. Now I suggest you get out of this town before I give you more than a black eye."
"Um, Raeger," Fritz spoke up innocently behind me, "He can't."
"Why not?" I asked Fritz with a groan. He's not helping.
"B-because they're calling for a two day snow storm. If he came here on a boat, he's stuck here until the storm passes." He reminded me.
"Shit. I. Hate you."
"Hey! S-sorry?" Fritz looks like he was going to wet himself.
"Relax. I wasn't talking about you Fritz." I reassured him.
Mark smirked. "Looks like I have a few days to work on getting Shan back."
"Over. My. Dead. Body!" I glared.
"That could be arranged."
"I had enough of you." I literally wanted to throw him out. "Just get out of my sight." I can't deal with this guy anymore. "Get out of my restaurant!"
"Fine. I should go find Shan."
"Not if I find her first." I walked to the door, actually considering of closing. This was important. I wasn't going to let Mark win Shan back. This was my mission. And I'm not going to lose. I thought this as I locked the restaurant and ran to Shan's. I don't care if Mark had passed me, I don't care if Fritz had distracted the idiot, I only wanted to see Shan
What will happen next? Who will reach Shan firs? Place your bets now! .
