Chapter 1

I was known as the Miss Prim and Proper of our university. Always wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, or a skirt that is always below the knee in length. My hair was always tied up, and I never wore bangs. Bangs are just too much of a nuisance on the face, especially when they hit the eyes.

I always carry books with me. Especially when I'm inside the university. I earned respect from the teachers because of that. Also, I was always at the top of the class. So I take care of my title of Miss Prim and Proper. Because that's the only way I get respect.

Many were annoyed, but nobody dared to oppose me. Why? Because I am the best friend of the most beautiful and hottest girl at the university.

Artemis Gallagher.

She has the power, the beauty, the fame, the money, and whatnot. She's like the epitome of beauty. Many men admire her but cannot form a bond because of her two brothers. She was the only girl of the Gallagher siblings, so it would be terrible if her brother could protect her.

And since Artemis is my friend, no one tried to fight with me, even though many were jealous. Many girls want to take my place, but they can't do anything.

"I hate Apollo."

I looked at the speaker who just sat in front of me while I was reading alone here in the library. It was my best friend, Artemis. And her face is frowning again. And for sure, her twin is probably the reason she looks like this.

"What now?" I asked, looking back at the book I was reading.

"He saw me talking to Joshua and just pulled me out of there! I left Joshua there! I mean, I was only talking with him! What's wrong with that?"

I put down the book I was reading because I'm sure I wouldn't understand anything there either. I arranged my scattered things and stood up to leave the library. With Artemis's noise, I'm sure we'll be scolded inside, so it's better if we talk outside.

"He's annoying!" Artemis continued as we got outside. "I don't say anything when he changes from woman to woman, but I'm just talking to the man; will he be banned? That was so unfair!"

A lot of people we meet greet her, but she doesn't pay attention because she's busy ranting to me about her brother. When we entered the cafeteria, I immediately looked for a seat.

"You know what, Daphne? Why don't you seduce my twin brother? Maybe he'll stop with me when he falls in love with you."

I looked at my best friend to see if she had grown a third eye. What the hell was she saying?

"Are you kidding me? You know I don't like playboys," I said, and as if on cue, we saw his twin entering the cafeteria with a new girl.

"That bitch is a slut. I hope he at least chooses a decent woman, right?" Artemis complained. Well, what does she expect? A playboy is for sluts only.

When I got home, I stood outside the gate of our house for a few minutes. I don't want to go inside. I don't want to go home, but I have no choice.

"Is Mama there, Manang?" I asked Manang Rosi when she opened the gate for me. She smiled sadly at me and nodded. I held my breath.

The usual day, huh?

When I entered the house, I was immediately attacked by the smell of alcohol. I sighed even more. I saw Mama in the living room, and it looked like she was drowning herself in alcohol again. When she saw me, he laughed out loud.

"Ah! The devil's daughter is here!"

I froze at what she said. Even if you say it every day, I still can't avoid being hurt. I approached her to steer, but she shook my hand.

"Don't touch me!" She tried to stop me, but because she was so drunk, she was no longer pointing directly at me. "You're the reason why my life is ruined! You! You two and your demon father!"

I sighed for the ninth time. I turned my back on her and went to my room. I know she will never stop saying hurtful things about me.

I did my routine. I showered and got ready. I put on my red lipstick and a smokey eyeshadow for my eyes. Then I blow-dried my waist-length hair and curled it. Then I wear a red halter dress that almost fits my body.

Then I got into my car and drove to the bar where I often go. The bouncer outside didn't even pay attention to me, and I continued to enter. I immediately went straight to the bar counter and ordered a Bloody Mary.

I was prim and proper at the university, but at night this bar filled me up.

I don't want to be at home. I don't want to see Mama. She always blames me for what happened in her life. She is angry with me, I know. and if it was possible for my parents to shop, I would have done it.

Want to know why my own mother hates me?

She was raped, and I was the result. Her then-boyfriend break up with her because of what happened. She can't put my father in jail because he's rich. And to make up for what he did, he sent us money every month. That Mama only consumes when she drinks alcohol.

God. I hate my life.

"Hi, miss. Can I buy you a drink?"

I looked at the man who spoke to me. He's good-looking. but I'm not here to hook up. I'm not new to being approached by men when I'm here at the bar.

"I'd love a drink, as long as you're not under the impression that offering me one will entice me to hook up with you later." I said it flatly, and the man frowned as he just left without saying goodbye.

I shook my head. Boys and their pick-up lines

"Did it hurt?"

With surprised eyes, I looked at the man who had asked me before.

"Did what hurt?" I asked, completely confused.

"When you fell from heaven,"

I was literally tormented by what he said. Lines like that have been scratched. Is there anything new?

"I dug my way up from hell." I said this while smiling sweetly at him. The man looked stunned.

"Oh. Well, this is awkward," he said, and just like before, he just left.

I saw the bartender smiling and shaking his head at me. He always sees how I reject men who approach me. I raised my glass at him before I emptied it and decided to go home.

On my way out, I was stunned. I saw Apollo Gallagher sitting on the couch with two women by his side. I got nervous. I don't want anyone at my university to see this look. That's why the bar I go to is far away, but why is he here? I am Miss Prim and Proper. And if someone sees me, my reputation will surely be ruined.

I quickly walked away, especially when I passed the couch where Apollo was sitting. I didn't look back when I passed, and he might still see me. I drove my way home and immediately got dressed and went to sleep.

"Daphne, I have a date with Joshua later."

I was surprised when Artemis said that. She knows she can't go on a date because she's a closed guard, especially with her twin. But what can I do? That's her life.

Speaking of her twin, did he see me last night?

"When my twin asks, it's up to you to sneak in, okay?" She said, which surprised me more.

"Don't blame me for the mess in your love life, Artemis." I said that and looked back at the book.

"Go ahead, please, Daphne," she begged, but she stopped when someone texted her cell phone. "Joshua is waiting for me at our meeting place. It's up to you, Daphne? Bye!"

I wanted to scream and chase her, but I was in the library. What the heck! That one is also reprimanded! I will still sympathize! This Joshua is becoming a bad influence!

I have my own problems, but it looks like my best friend's love life is even worse. I'm here.

I saw Apollo enter the library, so I stopped complaining in my mind and pretended to be reading. I almost caught my breath when he sat in the chair in front of me.

"Where's Artemis?" he asked, using hard words.

"I do not know." I answered because I couldn't think of an excuse. How brilliant of me!

"Liar." he said. "I saw her come out here, so I'm sure you know where she's going."

I looked up at him and raised an eyebrow. And I saw it. his piercing blue eyes that everyone in the Gallagher family is obsessed with. And now that I saw the man's eyes up close, I couldn't help but be amazed.

"Done admiring me?"

I blinked and saw his smile at me. Shame! He caught me staring at him!

I immediately tried to hide my embarrassment.

"You saw your twin come out here. Why didn't you just follow her instead of asking me?" I asked him bluntly, and I saw amusement in his eyes. Then he chuckled before shrugging his shoulders.

"Because I mean you," he said while still wearing his smirk.

"I?"

"Yes, you. Miss Prim and Proper, who goes to the bar every night,"

I immediately got a nervous attack because of what he said. Confirmed! He saw me last night! And I don't know how I can get through it!

"I'm not what you saw." I tried, but I knew he didn't believe me because he laughed.

"Alright. Try to deny it as long as you can, Miss Prim and Proper." He leaned forward, so I could almost smell his fragrant breath. "I'll surely get you out of your shell," he said before leaving me there alone.

My fists are clenched. My secret is out. Someone already knows my secret. And the bad news is that Apollo Gallagher knew then. And I'm scared that everyone will know that I was a product of rape.

How doomed am I?
