In last chapter:
That's all he said and I was confused so as to what happened. That was until he showed up.......
WAIT......WHAT?? WHAT IS HE DOING IN MY ROOM!?
In this chapter:
I look at the intimidating figure in front of me with a look of shock. That I cover quickly and get into protective mode. He casually sits down on a chair as if we are here on a fucking date.
Wait, what am I thinking!? A DATE!!??
I just sit down shaking my head and say, "Why the fuck are you here?"
He sighs and starts, "I want to know how you found out it was me." He cuts me off before I protest, "Look, with the things happening I need to know, okay? And to answer your unasked question, I got your number from your brother because I wanted to keep in touch about the preps. It sure wasn't easy because DAMN! You are good at hiding for your own good."
I nod and mumble, "I'm sure you're not here to tell me how great I am." At which he chuckles and continues, "I was here to tell you that everything for the coronation will be prepared by tomorrow on both sides according to our parents. So now, we are free to continue our investigation. I saw a look on your face when you searched Diabolica's mind. Can you explain? That is, if you don't mind."
He is being a gentleman unlike when we met in my office. I don't know how to explain that feeling that I'm having. So I try my best with, "I saw a silhouette in her mind which I'm sure is of a man but who? I can't place my finger on the specific identity. I also know for a fact I have met this man before but somehow this person manages to erase anyone's memory of him. Then there is this feeling where I just want to get away from him and this to protect myself and........" I trail off and sigh.
He gently places his rough hands on mine and gives it a gentle squeeze. I look up to meet his eyes and it's the first time I notice the specks of gold in his eyes. They are so beautiful, almost hypnotic. He swallows and I see his Adam's apple move. Suddenly the air around us is thick and our breathing has picked up. I didn't even realise when he came to sit beside me up until now. He gently places a hand on my waist and next thing I know is that he's picking me up bridal style.
I frown and ask, "What are you doing?"
He looks at me and his lips give a breathtaking smile. He leans down and whispers, "As much as I'd like to have those lips on mine, we need to talk. So, I'm taking you to the balcony to cool off, ." I slightly blush at the nick name, . It sounds so hot rolling off of his tongue in Italian.
He sits down on the swing in my balcony and the night breeze kisses my cheeks. He places me on his lap like I'm a delicate rose, wrapping his arms around me.
"You should be careful of everything now. I just wanted to tell you that, for some reason, I feel a connection to you. We don't have to use labels just yet but I know you are staying. I don't know how, but I'm sure you're staying. It's like you came in my life and swept me right off of my feet. I want to see where it goes. Will you let me?" He asks with so much purity and depth in his emotions that right now I'd say yes to almost anything.
I take a deep breath not trusting my voice and breathe out, "Yes, I'm willing to let you try. But we're going to have to protect ourselves together."
Before I can say anything else he places a finger on my lips says, "If you expect that I'll let you be locked in a safe place and make others fight for you then stop right there. You are MY queen. You fight with me to protect our people. It's either together or not at all. I know you can fight and protect. It will be disrespectful to take your right as their queen away. Hell it will be insulting!" His words make me smile so big, I think my face might split in two.
No one has ever made me feel this way. Ever. This is the most he could give me. Being there to protect someone is the maximum form of trust you can ever receive from them. I also love how he thinks my respect is important because frankly, most guys don't care. He's thinking highly of me and in that way he's just earned some respect and the right to call me his. Now as long as we are together, I don't care what happens. I know we will face it together.
"I admire the fact you consider my pride as an esteemed factor. It means a lot. Now, let's get to work, shall we?" I say smirking and as if on cue, we get a call from Maurice. Well, he gets the call, I can just listen.
"Hey, what up?" He says into the phone.
"Where are you man? You haven't replied to a single text." I could legit feel the irritation in his voice. I look up at Arold smirking and raise an eyebrow, all while trying not to laugh.
"Oh, sorry. Anything wrong?" He says glaring at me and this time I can't control my laughter.
"Are you hooking up with someone? Is that a chick?" This time it's my turn to glare him.
"Dude, I'm not hooking up."
"Then who........!? Wait....... Is that princess Glory?" I growl at that. I hate being called a princess. It sounds weak and girlish in my opinion.
I grab the phone and spit, "Watch your tongue around me kiddo! In case you don't want it to be cut. And I am NOT a hookup. AM I CLEAR!?"
"Yes , your highness." He says and I swear he's smirking. Correction on that, both the morons are smirking. I hit him on the arm and he yelps.
"Are you sure you are to be the king?" I ask him.
"Trust me, I doubt it too sometimes." Maurice says laughing. Arold just glares at me and the phone which makes us laugh harder. I'm pretty sure Maurice can imagine his expression to laugh that hard.
"Why'd you call, you ass?" He says angrily.
"Oh , I almost forgot. I need your help, we found some clues regarding the murders." He says goosebumps break out on my body hearing that.
"On our way," we both say in unision.
