THE DIAMONDS 2: 14, 15
I folded my hands And awaited his answer.
Well….I’d been so curious to know all about it for sometime now. So, this is the perfect opportunity.
“Well….” He started and leaned forward.
“He told me your biggest fear is first time s*x. He said you’d peed on your undies the first day your boyfriend touched your waist”.
My eyes dilated in shock as I gawped at him.
That little brat!! How dare he?
I stare at Miquel bashfully and he busted into laughter.
“That’s…..That’s a lie. It….it never happened” I tried to defend myself, but it clearly didn’t work out.
He laughed so hard and I felt my intestines turning.
How could that little boy say such a thing about me, huh? I’ve been trying so hard to forget that awful memory.
“Fine! I’m not playing anymore. You can continue the game yourself” I rolled my eyes and stood up, going to the bed.
“Hey! What did I do? It isn’t my fault you peed on your p*nt!” He said and laughed more and it only increased my shyness.
I felt like entering into the ground.
I laid nosily on the bed and covered myself up with the duvet and shortly, I felt him beside me.
“Hey; don’t tell me you’re angry at me” he cooed as he snuggled himself next to me.
“Don’t touch me” I pouted like a baby and tried moving away from him, but he pulled me close.
“Come on, hon. I don’t care if you pee on my face. Its never going to change my feelings” he said and I busted into uncontrollable laughter.
Pee on his face!!!
He chuckled as I laughed and he wrapped his hands around my waist.
“Let me tell you a story” he said after a cool and I turned to face him.
“Interested” I beamed and stared into his cute face as we laid snuggled up next to each other.
He stroke my hair and didn’t say a word for a while and just when I was about asking if something was wrong, he spoke up.
“A long time ago” he began.
“There lived a happy family – a father, mother and two sons. It was actually a royal family.
“Everything was going on well in the Kingdom,, but as you know, there’ll always be enemies.
“A wizard casted a spell on the throne and it got changed into the throne of darkness, meaning…any King who occupies the throne, must have the darkest heart. No matter how good you think you are, as long as you sit on the throne, the darkness would cloud you and take over.
“The happy family became disorganized as the father turned into a beast – a ruthless King with the darkest heart. He killed without mercy and took decisions that hurt a lot of lives.
“But one fateful day, the Queen was able to tame his heart, with the only cure – the power of True Love. Although, it wasn’t easy, but she did it.
“The King decided to run away – abandon the throne and leave with his family. But there was a little problem between his sons.
“Both of them had fallen in love with one girl. The girl was more attracted to the eldest son and this brought up so much anger in the heart of the younger son.
“When it was time to leave with their father, the eldest son rejected the idea because he didn’t wanna leave without his love. But the younger son was happy with the idea because he wanted both of them to lose the girl since she wasn’t attracted to him.
“The eldest son still stood his ground and insisted on staying. But his father having no time, took him away forcefully.
“He was sedated and the next time he was awake, he found himself in a moving car…on a bridge”.
He paused and sighed.
Oh my God!
Don’t tell me…..
“The eldest son had a stupid anger he couldn’t control and right there in the car, he started screaming.
The car caught fire and flew over the bridge and that was the end of it. The both parents died and the two sons were the only ones who survived.
“Till date, the throne is empty” he concluded with a wry smile and I stared at him, speechless.
Oh my God!
“Miquel…..” I tried to call, but he shut me with his index finger on my lips.
I saw a line of blood from his nose.
“Don’t talk about it, please” he wavered and I felt tears build up in my eyes.
The whole thing left me gob smacked.
He sniffed and wiped the blood off with his palm.
“It’s late, huh? Maybe its time to sleep” he said with a fake smile but I didn’t reply.
Yes, I could tell it’s fake.
“Goodnight, candy” he whispered and kssed my hair,
Then reached for the light switch on the wall.
He turned off the lights and resumed lying next to me.
I sniffed and wrapped my hands around his waist, holding him tight.
“I love you, Miquel” I whimpered, a tear rolling down my cheek.
I felt him smile and place his lips on my hair.
“I love you too” he replied and that was all for the night.
I opened my eyes blearily and they met with the rays from the morning sun on the window.
I itched my eyes and laid flat so I could stare up at the ceiling.
My hands were spread apart on the bed and I wondered; where was Miquel?
I sighed feebly and left the bed so I could get ready for school. But first, I decided to check up on Miquel.
I checked the balcony, he wasn’t there.
I checked the kitchen, still wasn’t there.
the bathroom, nothing.
Huh? Where the heck did he go so early?
I went into the bathroom to brush my teeth and as I faced the mirror, my mind kept reflecting on the story Miquel had told me the previous night.
Why do I have a feeling it wasn’t just a story? But it was actually about him?
I mean….I could read the emotions in his eyes as he narrated. And he mentioned the bridge…
Doesn’t it explain why he always gets so angry whenever the bridge is mentioned?
Because that was the place he’d lost his parents?
And Mykel’s message the previous day – *Your anger killed your parents*
*You’re the King of darkeness*
No; I didn’t want to think about it. It wasn’t possible. There’s no way Miquel can….
I washed my mouth and went into the bathtub afterwards to take my bath.
When I was done, I decided to fry some eggs in the kitchen for breakfast and to my amusement, Miquel didn’t show up till I was done.
Where the heck was he, huh?
I ate the eggs with bread, dressed up and finally left with my bag for classes.
On my way, I kept looking around if I’d see Miquel.
I was so worried, huh. Where could he be? Why would he leave the house so early without dropping a note or not?
Could he have gone for a meeting? But why do early? Is that even possible?
I bumped into Nina and Diane who were on their way to meet me and felt a little relieved. I needed someone to talk to.
“Hey, barbie” Diane teased with a smile.
“Hi. Good morning” I said under my breath and adjusted the books I held in my arms.
“Aww. Why’s your face like a rotten beans? What’s wrong?” She asked and touched my hair and I rolled my eyes.
“I’m fine, okay? And stop calling me names” I snapped.
“Good morning, Cali” Nina said with a light smile.
“Come on, Cali. We’re running late for training” Diana said and tried walking away, but I called back her attention.
“Training? What training?” I asked.
“What’re you talking about, Cali? The mission is tomorrow and today’s the final day we’ve got for training” Diane replied and I mouthed an *Oh!*
“Well…..I won’t be going” I told her and she scoffed.
“And what’re you talking about? A banshee is needed, right?” She asked.
“Yeah…..but Miquel doesn’t want me to go” I replied with a shrug and watched the surprise that crept into her face.
“And…..why would Miquel be against you going? What’re his reasons?”
“Well….I’ve got no idea. But I have to obey him” I replied.
She rolled her eyes and sighed.
“I can’t believe I’ll be left alone. Nina isn’t going. And same with you. G0sh” she mumbled.
“Anyway, see you later. I need to go”.
“Bye” I waved at her and she scurried off.
Nina and I were the only ones left and we left for classes together.

“We need to send the message to the priest”,one of them said.
“Let him know we’ve found Miquel”.
“Yes. I’ll send the message right away. But, how do we get him to come with us? You’d seen the way he ignored us when he’d seen us. He acted like we were ghosts. I’m not so sure he’d want to come with us willingly” the second replied.
“Of course, he wouldn’t want to come willingly. He’s definitely running away from the throne the same way his father did. But as long as he’s alive, he can’t run forever.
“We already know where he’s staying. So, we’ll keep track of him. As soon as he leaves the institute, we’ll go after him and grab him”.
The class was damn boring to me, probably because I kept thinking about Miquel. Where ever he was, I just prayed he was fine
Finally, it was time for lunch and Nina and I decided to eat in the cafeteria together.
On our way there, we got interrupted by Naomi.
“I want to have a word with you”, she demanded as she stood in front of us.
She was actually referring to me.
“Why?” I asked and she glared.
“When I ask for something, Cali, you don’t question me” she snapped.
The many students around were already stealing glances at us.
“Well, you don’t own me, Naomi. So, if you want to speak with me, I have the right to decide” I replied and tried walking away, but she gripped me by the hand and pushed me into the pool closeby.
I shrieked as I felt myself flying into the water,my bag, books, everything going along with me.
Oh my gawwwwd!!!
The students around and in the swimming pool also screamed and I gasped for air as I finally landed in the water and tried to keep my head out of it.
I panted and slapped my hand against the wall, then looked at Naomi, only to see a smirk on her face.
But….I saw something else – someone behind her.
Oh my God!
Isn’t that Miquel???
