YOU ARE MINE: 11-15
Arranged to him
( You are mine )
Episode 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
“You’re back home early.” he asked questionably. I nodded my head. “Why?” again questionably. I didn’t want to tell but scared he would think I was rude. So I opened my mouth to talk.
“I-I wasn’t feeling w-well.” As I said this, I felt something warm and rough against my forehead. I gasped at the feeling.
“You don’t seem to be having any fever.” he asked. “I am a h-headache.” I said back. “Wait here.” he said before he stride off to somewhere.
I stood still until he came back not wanting to get scolding. He came back with some kind of foil. He grabbed the cup I was holding and poured some water.
He peel off the foil and my eyes went wide. They were medicine. “Here take this. This will help.” he said as he gave it to me. I shook my head. He scrunched his eyebrows.
“Why not?” he asked curiously. “I don’t like them. They are yucky.” I said quickly. I heard a chuckle, which made my eyes go wider.
Did he just chuckle? Wow. He can chuckle. I thought the only emotion he had is anger. I learn something new about him everyday.
“They will help you with your headache.” he insisted. I continue to shake my head. “How about if you eat this, you’ll get an ice cream?” he bargained. Hearing ice cream, my face lit up. But how did he know I love ice cream?
Well as long as I get ice cream, I’m satisfied. I quickly took the medicine and chuck it down with the water. I made a scrunching face because of the taste which earn me another chuckle from him.
To tell the truth its nice to hear him chuckle. But I would never tell him that. Mr grumpy might actually tear my head off if I were to tell this.
As I was thinking he had got me an ice cream. I happily took it.
“T-thank you” I said. He just nodded his head. I went up to my room with the ice cream. Just then I realised I forgot about my pasta.
I open my door to get my food, when I saw him there with my food. He passed me my food. “Thank you” I said, again. He just nodded his head and went off. I closed my door and went to my bed to eat.
As I was eating I started to think. He seemed nice to me today. Why? Is he really a nice person or the scary person whom I first met? Urgh.
All the thinking just making my headache more. I quickly eat finish my food and started on homework.
Finally I was done with my homework. I kept them in my bag and was confused on what to do now. It was barely 4pm. And I didn’t know what to do.
I decided to take a tour around the house. If I am going to live here, might as well come accustomed to this place.
I went out strolling down the stairs to the living room. As I took the stairs I realised there is 3 floors. The rooms were in the 2nd floor and the kitchen and other rooms were in the first floor. I decided to start from the first floor.
Since I already know the kitchen, I went down a hallway. I opened the first room. There was a big screen with a rack of CDs and couches and beam bags.
I realised its a movie room. I went inside and start seeing through the CDs. Most of them were action movies. Guest scary man is a fan of action films. I also saw scary movies, which was relatable. I hate scary movies.
Especially the jump scares. I hate them. Next I went to the couches. They were so soft.
And the blankets were so fluffy. As I was enjoying the fluffiness, I heard someone clear their throat. I froze on my spot.
I was too scared to turn around. I knew who was it.
But I was scared that he was going to scold me for walking around the house without his permission. I heard footsteps and I knew he was coming to me.
“What are you doing here?” he asked me. I slowly turn around slowly. There he was. He was in his casual outfit. He was wearing a tank top with sweats. This is the first time I was seeing him in casual clothes.
He raised his eyebrows, that’s when I realised I haven’t answered his question. “I was loo-looking around the ho-house. I’m so-sorry I didn’t a-ask you” I answered him.
He looked at me for awhile. “Follow me.” is all he said before he started to walk. I stood frozen for awhile. He realised I wasn’t following he turn his head, “coming?” he asked.
I quickly went behind him. He brought me to the next room. He stopped at the door and opened it. “This is the game room.” he said as he led me inside.
Inside was pool table, Mini football table, board games and my favourite, video games. He even had x-box. As I saw that my eyes lit up.
Ash and I, always play this when we go to his house. It will be so much fun. And I am actually quite good at it. My favourite is FIFA. I’m super good at it.
“So you like video games?” he asked while looking at me. I nodded my head.
“Well lets play a game then.” when he said this I froze.
“Well lets play a game then.” when he said this I froze.
Seriously? He wants to play a game with me.” I-I” I didn’t know what to say. He walked to the couch and sat, switching on the xbox.
He took 2 controller and asked me to take one. I hesitantly walked and took a seat in the couch.
“What game would you like to play?” he asked as he scroll through the games. He turn to me as I didn’t answer him. “Erm FIFA” I said. And I think I saw a smile. But I must be dreaming.
We soon continued play. I purposely lose scaring he might get angry. But it looked like he was purposely losing also. I didn’t understand. Why was he purposely losing?
He sighed before he put the controller down. “Why are you purposely losing?” he asked. I shook my head.
“I wont be mad if you win. Alright?” he said before we continued to play.
Soon I won the game. I smiled at that. But what I didn’t believe was that he also smiled when I won. Shouldn’t he be angry that I won and he lost? I shrugged it away.
“Lets go.” he said as he stood up and started to walk. I followed him behind. He showed some other room, like the tea room and hangout area.. Next we went up to the second floor.
The first room he showed me was his office room. “This is where I would be most of the time when I am at home.
If anything you can come find me here.” he said and showed me around the room.
This room looked different from the others. It was classier than the others. Everything were well organised and neat.
Next he showed me the guest room there were many. At the end of the hallway, there was one last room. “This is ou- my room.” he went to open the door before I stopped him.
“You d-don’t have to sh-show me if you don’t want too” I said quickly. He nodded his head before we went back to the staircase.
We took the staircase up. To tell the truth the third floor looked more darker which made it look spooky. And there was only 2 doors.
He opened the one on the right.
When I sent inside I couldn’t control the bubble of excitement in me. It was a library. It looked bigger than the one in my school.
There were so many shelf with different category. I didn’t know where to start or end. “I take it you love to read.” in my excitement I almost forget that he was there.
My cheeks became red in embarrassment. “Y-Yes,” I said in embarrassment. He let out a chuckle and start showing me around the library.
After sometime we left with me holding onto 2 books in my hand. I can always come and take more. As we left the place, I thought we were going into the other room.
But he went towards the staircase.
“What a-about that r-room?” I asked hesitantly. He looked at the room and quickly turn away.
“That room is not important. Its just a storage room.” he said too quickly making him suspicious. I dropped it not wanting to push the scary man.
As we head down to the living room, he brought me to the backyard. The backyard was mind blowing. There were so many flowers. Especially my favourite, White roses. I want to have one.
“C-Can I have one?” I asked scared that he might get angry. “Which one?” he asked looking down at me.
I pointed to him the white roses. He strode there and pluck one of it and came back to me. As he gave me the flower, I gleefully took it.
We went back inside as I realised it started to get dark.
As we went back in, I saw Mary come back. As she looked between me and the scary man, she gave him a knowing smile. I didn’t understand.
He nodded his head as he went away. I shrugged and went back to my room. I decided to take a small nap before dinner.
What felt like 10 minutes, but an hour, later I wake up due to someone knocking the door. I open the door to reveal Mary standing there.
“Hey sweetheart. I came to tell that dinner was ready.” she said with a smile. I told her I would be down in a minute. I washed my face to get rid of my sleepiness.
As I went to the dining area, my Mart called me. “Hey sweetheart can you do me a favour?” she asked as she hurriedly prepared everything. “Sure Mary.” I said with a smile.
“Can you go and call Damien. He is in his office. I’m busy in here.” she said as I froze. “Me?” I asked questionably hoping its not me.
“Yes you.” she said in the ‘duh’ tone. “Why me?’ I whined. “Please dear. That man hasn’t had anything since morning.
Would you please go and call him for dinner.” she said with those pity eyes of hers. And of course I fell for that.
I muttered an ok and went to call him. I quietly walked to his office and slowly knocked his door. I heard a soft yet husky ‘come in’ and entered.
As he saw me he quickly hide something. I squinted my eyes but washed it away as soon as it came.
“How can I help you?” he asked me. “Erm, Mary a-asked me to in-inform you that dinner is ready.” was all I said.
He said he would be down in a minute and I nodded my head and I rushed out. I let out a breathe that I didn’t knew I was holding on.
I decided to have my dinner before he come so that I could go before he comes. As I came into the dinning area she was done.
I was about to grab my food when she stopped me. “Where is Damien?” she asked me. “He said he would be down in a minute.” I said and tried to grab the plate before she stopped me again.
“Why don’t you wait for him?” she asked me. Before she could reply, I heard someone clear their throat. I knew it was him. I mentally face palm, Great, Note the sarcasm.
Now I’d have to eat with him. “Damien, come on. Mia was waiting for you.” No I was not. I wanted to tell but refrained my self. He came and sit in the head of the table, right beside me. Seriously.
Come on luck. Be with me. He took a plate for me and himself. Mary was about to serve us when he stopped her. “That’s ok. We’ll serve ourselves. Why don’t you take some rest.” he said. I wanted to ask her to stay.
But realised she was tired and needed some rest. After she left, he took one by one dish and served for both of us.
I muttered a small thank you. When I looked at my plate, I become speechless. There was so much. I barely can eat half. Don’t get me wrong. I love food, but this was too much.
I tried to eat as much as I can. But barely was able to eat half. I frown looking at the food.
“What’s the problem?’ the scary man asked me. I shook my head. “You don’t like the food?” he asked again.
“No, no. its delicious.” I said quickly. “Then whats the problem?” he asked. “Its too much.” I sighed. When I looked at his plate, he had finished everything.
“Its ok. You don’t have to finish everything. But you gotta start eating more,” he said in a stern voice.
I nodded my head. He called Mary and she took our plates. We washed our hands and was about to go to our room.
“Wait.” he called me. I turn around as he came nearer. He asked to unlock my phone and quickly grabbed. Before I could protest he dialed a number and called it before hanging up.
“This is my number. In any emergency call me. I’m your emergency contact in your school.” he said before giving me back my phone and went off.
I started at my phone for awhile before deciding to save it. ‘ Scary man.’ that’s it.
I went back to my room and gave into my tiredness. What a long day it was.
Arranged to him
( You are mine )
The next morning I woke up to go to school. As I came downstairs, I saw that the scary man was having his coffee and talking to Mary. When Mary saw me both of them went quiet.
“Good morning dear. What would you like to have?” she asked me. “Good morning Mary. I would just have an apple.” I said as I grabbed an apple.
“You sure dear?” she asked eyeing me. “Positive.” I said back. As I was about to go, “Wait.” the scary man said abruptly.
My feet stopped on their own. Both my mind and body can never go against him. Urgh. “I’ll drop you off at school.” he said as he stood up.
“W-What? Why?” I asked too quickly.
“Its on my way.” he said eyeing me suspiciously. “No its ok. I don’t want to t-trouble you.” Why do I always stutter when I talk to him?
“Its no trouble.” he said with a stoic face. “W-What about after school? I-Its ok. I brought my c-car here anyway.” I said as I showed him my car keys.
“I’ll pick you up after school. Text me once your school finish.” With that he walked off expecting me to follow behind. When I looked at Mary she encouraged me to go.
With a huff I went along. As I stepped outside he came with his car. I went to seat behind when he told me to seat in the front.
With no choice I did as he said. The car ride was awkward. This is why I wanted to go in my car. I would have blasted my radio and have a sing along
Too bad I cant do that. “What subjects do you study?” he asked wanting to make small talk. I told him my subjects combinations to which he nodded his head.
He tried to make small talks to which I answered not wanting to be rude. When we were nearer to our school I realised that the people in our school might actually see him and me.
Shoot. People will know I am the mysterious girl and I would become the talk of the school.
As we reached outside the school, “You can drop me off here.” I said quickly not wanting people to see us together.
“Why?” he asked questionably. “It would be crowded inside and you won’t able to park either.” I quickly came up with a lie. I don’t know why but I feel bad when I lied to him.
I got rid of those thought and shook my head. “T-Thanks.” I said as I got out.
As I went towards the school, I turn back to see if he was still there. And indeed he was still there.
I quickly turn back and walked to inside,
I went to my locker and took my books.
I waited for Ash as we usual meet at my locker and go to class. But he didn’t come. I went to his locker and he wasn’t there, That’s weird.
The school bell rang and I went to class thinking maybe he was there already. But nope. I got worried and texted him.
I didn’t get any reply. Maybe he wasn’t feeling and is sleeping.
I thought of calling him during lunch. Classes went by in bore without Ash. We would be fooling around and now without him is boring,
Soon lunch came and I called Ash but he didn’t pick up. That weird, he always pick up when I call. I sat in the bench bored and talking to some of my classmates.
The rest of the day was the same. Me not paying much of attention what the teacher has to say. The day finally ended and I realised that the scary man wanted to pick me up.
I didn’t want anyone seeing him pick me up. So I came up with a plan and waited for everyone to leave.
Once everyone has left, I texted the scary man saying school was over. And by the way, he’s name in my contacts is ‘scary man’. I laughed at that.
Within 10 minutes he was right outside my school. That was quick. I quickly got in not wanting him to wait.
After few minutes of driving, “How was school?” he asked me. “Erm ok?” I said doubting myself. He raised his eyebrows to continue.
“I-Its was kinda boring.” I said with a sigh. “Why?” he pressed on. “My best f-friend didn’t come to school.” I said finish.
“Oh” was all he said. We didn’t talk much after that.
Once we reach, I went to my room. After taking a quick shower, I started on my homework. As I was doing my homework, Ash texted me.
A- Hey sorry. I wasn’t feeling well. I was sleeping
M- Finally. I thought someone kidnapped you or something.
A – what! why would you think that?
M- I was kidding.
A- Oh. anyway you cannot get rid of me that easily
M= True. Anyways, I have your homework with me.
A- Urgh. I hate them.
M- I know. But too bad.
A- whatever. see ya tomorrow.
M- See ya
END OF CONVERSATION.
I got back to my homework after that.
After an hour or so, I was finally done with them. It was exhausting doing them. Just then I heard a growl. I realised it came from my stomach.
I went to the kitchen to see if Mary was there. But she wasn’t. That is weird.
Usually she would be here by this time. I went to check if she has cooked anything but there was nothing.
I wished I could because my stomach is growling right now. I found a cookie jar and start munching on it.
When I was walking up the stairs, I saw the scary man coming down. With my head down, I climbed up.
As he passed by me, I felt his stares on me, but I didn’t look at him. Few seconds after he passed by me, “Wait.’ he called which made my legs stop immediately.
“Mary isn’t home.” he said to me. “I k-know” I said with a low voice. “Erm, do you want to got out and eat?” he asked questionably.
That question made my eyeballs come out. No way! I didn’t want to go out with him. “No its ok. I-I don’t w-want to tr-trouble you.” I said as quick as I can.
“I am going out for dinner anyways. its no trouble.” he said as if it was no big deal. But to me it was a huge deal. HUGE DEAL!
I realised he wouldn’t let me go until I said yes. So with a big sigh I said yes. “Great. I’ll meet you back here in 10.” he said as he walked off.
I nodded my head and went to my room with the jar of cookies. I don’t know where we going. So I decided to wear something simple and casual.
I wear a light blue dress where the sleeves from the shoulder to the was net and stopped slightly above mid thigh.
I didn’t put any make up or anything. Its not like I’m going on a date or something. That thought made me froze. I mean we are not going on a date right?
Please say no. I mean he said it himself. We were just going to have dinner that’s all.
There is no way, The scary man would bring me, out of everyone, on a date.
I trashed away those thoughts and put on my blue sandals and grabbed my purse.
I rushed *down not wanting to be late. As I went down I realised he was already. I quickly went down* not wanting him to wait and end up biting my head off.
As I reached down, he was facing away from me. After hearing my footsteps, he turn to me. And that’s when I forgot how to breathe.
He was wearing a black jeans with black shirt and black leather jacket. I did not know why but I stood still. This man I described as scary man, looked nothing like the man I know.
He looked different. He looked attractive. What I didn’t realise was that he was gazing all this while I was reading him. A blush came up my cheeks.
Sensing he cleared his throat. “You look stunning.” he said as he rubbed the back of his neck. I didn’t know what to say so I just nodded my head.
He started to walk out as I followed behind him. We went to his garage as I saw many cars lined up. Along with mine.
To say that my car looked different from others will be an understatement. But still she’s my baby.
Instead of the regular car, he walked to a sports car which looked sleek.
I didn’t know much about cars but this was too good. If I am not wrong this is a Porsche car. He opened the passenger seat for me, as I got in.
He quickly got into the car and we drove off.
During the ride I kept thinking. This isn’t the man that I knew. This wasn’t the man who warned me the first time we met.
This wasn’t the man who forced me into marriage. This wasn’t the man who scared me shitless. He was different.
I don’t know what was happening to me. Am I going crazy? Have I judged the book without reading? Was this an act? I don’t think so.
I saw truth in that deep blue eyes if his just now. The last question made me shiver.
Am I starting to like him?
We were driving for some time before he pulled into a familiar place. It was my favourite diner in the city.
Usually my parents and Olivia doesn’t like it if I were to come and eat here as they state its not our standard.
But the food here is amazing. Especially their pie and milkshake. It was something to die for. As I was in excitement, I didn’t realise my door opening.
The scary man had open the door for me. Without saying anything at all, we walked right in. And to top it all he went to my favourite seat.
The window seat. The view of the city from there is amazing to say the least.
As we sat down I was still in shock. How did he know about this? Was this coincidence or did he actually know about it? But how.
“H-How did you know?” I asked astonished. He just chuckled. “Its a secret.” he said as he start reading the menu.
Just then Tanner, a 15 year old waiter came. “Hey Mia!” he cheered. “Hey Tanner. How ya doin?” I asked him. He just shrugged and chuckled.
I saw the scary man looking between us and smiling. Am I getting a flu? I dismissed it off. “Good evening Sir. What would you like to have?” he asked politely with a huge smile.
The next words that left his mouth shocked me. He ordered the same food that I order every time I come here. Ok what is going on?
Tanner who noticed this wiggles his eyebrows between us. I blushed and didn’t say anything. After taking down the order he went away.
I wanted to ask what’s going on. But I did not. I have a feeling I’m gonna have more surprises than this.
“So, do you like wanna play game while we pass the time?” he asked in a soft voice. I was surprised when he spoke in that soft voice.
“Y-Yeah sure.” “What g-game?” I asked in curiosity. “can you see what I see” he said quickly. “O-Ok”
“I start. It’s red and white” he started. “And it has squares in it.” he finished. It was simple. “Table clothes”
“Right. Yours” I thought for awhile. “It has four legs and brown” I said. “Chair” we continued to play for sometime.
After a while, “Alright my turn. Its white, pink and red. Its soft and has great smell.” he said while looking behind me.
I turn around and looked behind. And my mouth went wide open. They were my favourite flowers.
White, red and pink flowers. Tanner brought in the flowers as he handed it to him.
Reaching out he gave while smiling as bright as the day light. I couldn’t move for awhile. “Don’t you like them?” he asked as I saw a frown form in his face.
“No, no. They are my favourite” I said as I quickly took them. I smelled them, it was so intoxicating. I didn’t realise that he was staring at me.
“Thank you so much.” I said softly. “Welcome.” he said as he smiled at me. Sooner, the food came and we started to dig in.
He was enjoying the food just like me. After finishing the food, we had vanilla milkshake. They were heaven. Not only did I enjoyed it. But so did he.
Once we are done, we said goodbyes and left. It was a quiet yet comfortable ride back. I was exhausted. I slowly closed to my eyes and drift off.
“Amelia, wake up. We are here.” I heard someone calling me. I slowly opened my eyes. I realised I slept on the ride back.
I was blushing from embarrassment. He chuckled and helped me with my belt. I mumbled a small thank you. We both got down as he locked his car.
We both went back in together and went to our rooms. “Good night Amelia.” he said with a sleepy voice. I smiled. “Good night.” I said as I waved back.
I went back to my room to take a quick shower.
As I was about to go and sleep, I thought of going to the library to read a book before going to bed.
As I reached the third floor, I turn to my left and saw the mystery door.
To astonishment, I saw the keys hanging on it. I wanted to take a peak inside. But it was rude intruding inside a person’s room.
I didn’t want to that. I decided I should lock the room and give him the keys without looking inside.
As I grabbed the door to lock, my legs tripped and I fell inside. I hit my head and my back against the floor. My head and elbows started to hurt.
I quickly got up and tried to go out when I saw the door was closed. I couldn’t see where I was so I searched for the switch against the wall.
I tried to find the switch but couldn’t. I was about to give up when I felt the switch.
I hoorayed as I switch on the lights. Once I switch on the lights, the bright light blind my eyes.
It took me some time to recover. As I opened my eyes, I was shocked. SO SHOCKED!
There were paintings. So many of them. But what shocked me was, they were all of ME! Each of them. I walked slowly towards them.
Some of them were of me pouting and some of them were of me laughing and smiling.
Each of them held a emotion. So many of them. As I saw this, I don’t know why but I started to tear up.
Why was I tearing up. I don’t know. But I was definitely overwhelmed.
Who drew all this? I questioned *myself. Just then I heard a sound and turn back and see. The scary man was standing heavily* panting. He stared right into my eyes while I did too.
There were so many emotions. Scared. anticipation. Worry. Fear. But what made me have goosebumps was the love in his eyes.
“D-Did you d-do all of t-this?” I asked as my lips trembled. “I can explain. Just listen to me.” he said as he took cautious steps towards me.
“Did you?” I asked again but with higher voice. He hung his head. “Yes. Yes it was me.” he said in a voice I can barely hear.
“Why?” I asked in questioning tone. He looked up at me and chuckled.
“Why? Why? ” he said in a mocking tone.
“Its because I love you damn it.” he said as he run his finger over his hair.
“I love you so much but you never know. Why do you think I wanted to marry you instead of your sister.
Why did you think I came to your house constantly?” he asked as he start to raise his voice.
“Why me?” I asked in a timid voice. He laughed a humorous laugh. “You tell me. Why did I search the entire mall searching for you like a mad man.
Why did I yearn to just hear your voice. Why does my heart start beating like a race car whenever I see you?
why do I get so jealous and mad when I see other men making you blush? Why am I willing to do anything for you?
You tell me!” he asked in a absurd voice. More tears start to flow when I hear this.
Without saying anything else he walked off. I fell to the floor once he told me this. What is going on. What have I done?
All this time he was in love with me and how did I not see this? Am I that blind? What is going on with me?
I sat for awhile before I stood up and left the room. I went down and instead of going to my room, my legs went to his.
As I stood in front of his room, I wiped away my tears. I slowly made my way inside. I saw him standing on his balcony.
I went there and did the only thing that came into my mind. I hugged him.
I didn’t know what else to do. When I did this his body tensed before he relaxed. We stood there for a few seconds before I asked the question that was digging my mind.
“Why didn’t you say so?” I asked so softly I doubt that he heard. He slowly turn around. And brought me to sit down.
He crouched in front of me before he started to talk. “When I first met you, I have fallen so deeply with you. Your eyes, gosh they were so mesmerizing and innocent.” He said as I blushed.
“But I wanted to avoid you. I didn’t want to let you in.” he said and I gave him the questioning look. “You were so innocent.
So beautiful. I thought I didn’t deserve an angel like you. You didn’t deserve a monster like me.”
When he said that he looked down. My hands automatically made him face me as he smiled at me.
“But then I saw you again at your house and I couldn’t help myself. There you were, all drenched in the rain like a small girl.”
This made me embarrassed. He just chuckled. “I couldn’t get you out of my mind. The next day when I saw you again in the mall, I was once again whipped.” he said as I laughed.
“Then again when I saw the stupid waiter flirting with you, I lost it. I wanted to be the only one who made you laugh and smile and blush. That is when I decided you would be mine no matter what. ”
He said with a rough voice that sent chill down my body. “I knew you were the only angel who could tame this monster.”
Arranged to him
( You are mine )
As he promised, we did everything I wanted. We played video games till lunch. It was so much fun.
At the beginning we kept losing to each other bit as the level got harder, we both lost in the game. We kept laughing until our stomach start to hurt.
During lunch, Damien cooked us steak with mash potato. I gotta say, he’s a quite the cook.
After our lunch, we thought of just watching movies. The entire afternoon we spent on watching transformers. (Don’t judge)
I don’t know how the day went by so fast but it went in a blur. We ordered some pizza for the night. We just talked and laughed as we ate our pizza.
I learned so much about him. When he was in high school, he was a rugby player.
He was a mommy’s boy when he was young. That was until he was 10 years old. His mother passed away when he was 10 years old.
I was so sorry for him. He turned cold after that. Until today. His favourite color is navy blue, his favourite hobby is going to the gym and favourite food is pot roast.
I learnt so much about. So did he,
All the while I was talking to him, I felt like I was talking to a kid who was telling his mum what he likes.
It was fascinating to hear him talk.
After the dinner, we just when to the backyard and went for a small stroll.
I was telling him about my favourite flowers when I saw the flowers in the garden, and what they represented. He was listening to what I was saying carefully.
It was such a nice day. A day I would never forget. I am so grateful for today. I would never forget today. I don’t think I can forget it even if I want to.
Soon I was feeling sleepy. “Are you tired?” he asked me. I just yawned and nodded my head. He just chuckled and lead me back inside.
We head back to our room, and got changed into our pyjamas. He was just wearing sweats and a tank top. While I, wore PJ shorts and shirt.
We both head to sleep. The exhaustion start to hit me like a train wreck. Before I could sleep, “What time will you be leaving?” I asked as I played with my fingers.
He made me look at him. “around 4am.” he said as I see sadness in his eyes.
I just nodded my head at him. He rubbed my cheeks softly. He took in a deep breathe. “I love you.” he said. I just stared at him not knowing what to say.
I liked him. I know that. But do I really love him? Even if I did, I don’t want to tell him that before I know for sure.
“I understand. I don’t want to pressure you to tell me that.” he said with understanding. “Thank you.” I said as I went to sleep.
The next morning I wake up to see I was alone in the bed. I looked around and saw a note.
Sorry I left without telling.
I didn’t want to wake you up.
You looked tired.
I will come back soon.
You can call me anytime you want.
I’m gonna miss you.
I love you so much.
This literally melt my heart. I don’t know what to say. I placed the note carefully into my jewellery box and left to shower.
It was a Sunday. I didn’t know what to do. I saw Mary downstairs and was surprised. “Damien told me you weren’t in the weekends.”
“Oh that my dear, he called me to come in since he went overseas.” she told me. “Oh” is all I told. She gave me some breakfast. Once I ate my breakfast, I decided to go to the library.
I started going around and thinking of a book to read. I managed gather a few books. I carried them and went to the couch that was near the fire place and started to read them.
After about few hours of reading them, I started to drift off to sleep. At around 3pm, I woke up. I realised I was sleeping for an hour or so. I kept the books aside and went down.
I saw Mary cleaning the living room. When I offered to help, she declined. I was starting to get bored. I called Ash immediately.
“Hey you. What’s up?”
“Nothin. You wanna hang out? Lets play basketball maybe?” I asked me. He immediately said yes. I put down the phone and went to get ready.
I wore a black sports legging with a sports, a loose tank top with Nike shoes. I informed Mary and went to meet Ash.
We met in the basketball court. He brought along his basketball. We started to play a game.
After along hours of play, we were exhausted. It was around 7pm and we decided to head back. Ash dropped me back home.
I said a quick goodbye and went inside. When I went inside I saw Mary. “Hey Mary.” I greeted her. She smiled back at her. I quickly went back to our bedroom and showered.
After feeling refreshed, I went down. I smelled food and got so excited. I rushed down to see, Mary in the kitchen.
“Hey Mary. What’s for dinner?” I asked excitedly asked her. She smiled as she placed a plate of spaghetti. My mouth water at that. She just chuckled at my behaviour.
I devoured the food. Once I was done, I went to wash my plate when Mary insisted she’ll wash them.
While she was washing them, we just talked about random. She told me how Damien was such a quiet boy when he was younger.
She also told me he was the most smartest kid she ever saw. “I was always scared that the boy was never gonna let anyone in.
He was so closed off. But when I saw him with you, all the fear scurried away. Thank you so much dear for giving the boy a chance.”
she said as she holds my hands. “Please don’t thank me. Thank you for taking care of Damien. I wouldn’t know what would have happen to him if not for you. You were the mother figure in his life.”
I said as I thanked her. She nodded her head and mouthed a quiet welcome. Once she was done with everything she head back to her house.
I decided to call Damien. I went up to my room and picked up my phone. I dialled his number and called him.
I was waiting for him to pick up. It kept dialling but he never pick up.
When I was about to put down, he finally pick up.
“Hey love,” he said once he picked up. I blushed from the endearment. “Hey.” I said softly as I blushed. Knowing it, he started to chuckled.
“I’m sorry I didn’t call you earlier. I was quite busy in here. I’m trying to finish everything fast here, so that I come back fast.” he said.
“Its ok. I understand.” I said back understanding. “So what how was your day.” he asked me.
So I went on what about what happened and how I spent my day. He was listening to me attentively. We each shared about our events that we did today.
I didn’t know why but I was interested about him and his life. I wanted to know more about him. The real him.
After an hour or so, we both felt exhausted. “Goodnight.” I said to him.
“Goodnight love, I love you.” he said and hang up. I really wished I could tell him that.
But something is just stopping me from saying it.
With that thought, I went to sleep.
Its been 2 *days since he left. 3rd morning I woke up without him beside me. I was missing him. Every time we spoke I could tell* that he was missing me too, I cant wait to see him.
I stood up and head to shower. Once showering and getting ready for school, I went down and saw Mary.
I greeted her. She greeted me back. I took an apple as I went to take my car and drove to school.
The other night when he called me, he told me to use any of his cars. But I insisted on using mine. I missed riding in my car.
Upon reaching my school, I went to my locker. I saw Ash waiting for me. I took out the books I needed and shut my locker.
“Why are you *looking so gloomy?” he asked me. “Nothing.” I said and walked to our class. “Don’t lie. Let me guess. You miss your* husband right?” he asked me as we sit down.
I sighed as I nodded my head. “Don’t worry. He will be back soon.” he assured me.
“He said it will take another 2 more days.” I said to him. “Oh.” Is what he said. “Don’t worry. 2 days will be over before you can blink.” He cheered me up.
I just shook my head. The teacher came in and started conducting the lesson.
Ash and I *were sitting in our 4th lesson, when suddenly my phone start to ring. Everyone’s head turn to me. I saw who it was and was unknown. I disregarded and put my phone in vibration.
It kept ringing but I couldn’t pick up. Then again it rang again. But this time it Damien’s dad. Worried, I pick up the phone without anyone noticing.
“Albert is everything alright?” I asked worried. “No my dear.” he said as I sensed panic in his voice. “Its Damien. He, he..” he started to stutter.
“Albert, you are scaring me.
What happened to Damien?” I asked scared. “He met with an accident.” he dropped the bomb at me.
I quickly stood up. I hear him calling me and telling me the hospital name.
But I couldn’t move or breathe. My hands started to sweat which made the phone drop.
I didn’t care everyone was looking at me. Ash who was beside me started to shake me.
I regained my conscious. Without saying anything I ran out of the classroom and school as I got into my car.
I felt someone open and close the door. But I didn’t bother to check who was it. As I started to rush drive and went out the school, I realised it was Ash.
After gathering myself up, I answered him. “Its-its Damien. He got into an accident.” I told him sobbing. I didn’t realise I was crying.
“Shit. damn it.” he said as started to say he will be fine and calm me down. I wont be able to calm down until I see him and know that he is fine.
Within minutes we were in the hospital. Without even parking I ran out of the car.
Ash said he will park the car and come in. I nodded as I went to the receptionist and enquired.
She quickly gave me the details and told that he was in the ICU. With tears running down my face I ran to the ICU.
I saw Mary and Albert sitting down. Both of them had worried face. As I tried to go into the ICU Albert stopped me from entering.
Not being able to fight him, I just cried. “Shhh. Its ok my dear. He’s gonna be fine.” he assured. But I need to know that he is fine. Soon Ash was there. I ran to him and start to cry.
Ash tried to calm me but failing miserably. “What happened? How is he now?” Ash asked knowing I’m unable to speak.
“They said he was returning home in a fast speed and a truck hit him. The doctor has yet to say anything.” Albert said. When I heard this, I started to cry more.
He was rushing home to see me. This is all because of me. I cried until I start to wheeze and my head started to spin.
I fall limb as Ash tried to hold me. All I could hear were people yelling my name before I succumb to the darkness.
I groaned as I hold my head and wake up. I opened my eyes and looked around. I realised I was in the hospital.
I wondered what happen and the things that happen before I fell unconscious came flooding to me.
I quickly stood up and exit the room. I searched for the room and came across Mary.
“Mary where is he?” I asked looking everywhere. “Calm down.” she said. “Please tell me where is he.” I begged her. She sighed as she guide me.
We went into a isolated room. There he was. Put up in wires and tubes. He was pale. The usual cheery smile that I was dying to see wasn’t there.
Tears just continued to rushed down. I saw Albert and Ash sitting down discussing. Upon seeing me they stood up.
I went to them. “What happen? He’s gonna be alright right?” I asked looking at them. They looked at each other. Ash sighed as he made me sit down and followed by both of them.
“Look Mia. I want you to listen to me carefully. Don’t get worked up.” he said as he told me worriedly. I nodded my head.
He took a deep breath before continuing. “Due to the accident he lost a lot of blood. When he was brought in he was in a critical condition.” when he said this I took in a sharp breathe.
“But they were able to stabilize him. But,” he paused. “But what?” I persuaded. “But, due to the loss of blood, they had induce him into a coma.
He will only wake up, when he can.” he said finish. I couldn’t believe what he was saying. It can’t be true.
I slowly stood up and went beside him. I looked at him. Wishing he would wake up now and say all of this is just some kind of prank. I waited for him to stand up. He has to.
When I realise he isn’t going wake up, I fall to ground and started to cry. I cried for him to wake up. I didn’t realise how much I needed him till today.
I didn’t realise how much he means to till now. How am I gonna do this without him? I NEED HIM. Albert came up to me and help me stand.
“Look at me, my dear. He’s gonna be fine. He’ll come back to you. I promise you.” he reassured. I nodded my head at him.
I had to stay strong for him. He’ll come back to me. With that thought, I sat beside and took his hands in mine.
“Please come back to me.” I whispered hoping he can hear me.
Arranged to him👽☠️
( You are mine )
His confession made my eyes go wide. Did he really mean what he say? I was just looking at him all this while.
Just staring at him
“Say something please.” he looked at me pleadingly. I just stared at him in disbelief. I didn’t know what to say.
“I know you would be mad for asking you in marriage, but I didn’t know what else to do. I can’t marry your sister when I am in love with you.
That is why I asked your parents in hand marriage of you instead of your sister.”
“But then I realised that you were scared of me. I know when we first met I told you some mean things but that was because, I was scared of falling for you. But when I realised that I had already fallen it was too late.
I did everything I could so that you wouldn’t be afraid of me.”
I was blank. He did so much for me.
I had all this while thought wrong about him. I was such an idiot. Without saying I hugged. I kept saying sorry, not knowing what else to say.
“I’m so sorry. I didn’t know any of this. I’m so sorry…” I just kept saying I’m so sorry. “Hey, its ok. Its not your fault. I was the idiot and tried to push you away.”
I laughed at what he said. We stayed there for a few minutes and didn’t say a word.
“So, does this mean you are not scared of me anymore?’ he asked like a small child.
I smiled. “Nope.” I said as I smiled up at him. He rubbed the back of his neck, wanting to say something. “Erm I want to say something to. But promise me you won’t get angry or anything.” he asked me.
“What is it?” I asked him. “Promise me first.” he looked like a small child right now. “Alright I promise.” I assured him.
“Well I kinda kidnapped your friend today.” he say as he nervously laughed. “What!” I asked shocked. “Ok. Its not really kidnapped.
I borrowed him for awhile. He is back at his home safe and sound.” he defended.
“But why?” I asked questioningly. “Well I wanted to know what are your dislikes and likes. So I brought in your friend and he told me everything.
That is why he didn’t come to school today. I didn’t want to lie to you so that is why I am telling you this.”
I wasn’t mad at all. I was astonished. “Do you forgive me?” he asked me. I act as if I was thinking.
“Let me think. Nope.” when I said this his face fell. I laughed. “Unless you get me an ice cream” when I said this, he smiled and hugged me so tight I was not getting oxygen anymore.
“Thank you so much.” he said as he set me down. We sat down and talked for sometime about random things.
He was really a fun and nice man. I was the one who judged the book without reading.
At one point I told him a joke where Ash and I did something foolish and he started to laugh so hard.
When he was laughing, I realised he had dimples. When I saw his dimples, I didn’t know what came over him, but my hands immediately went out and poked his dimples.
When I realise what I did, I froze. He turn to look at me and gave me a smirk. “Why did you just do that?” he asked me cunningly. I just chuckled like a mad girl.
He just started laughing again. Soon I started to get sleepy. “We should go and sleep.” he said when I started to get sleepy.
I head off of to my room and said good night for the last time tonight to Damien.
As I lie in my bed and think about everything that happen tonight, I was overwhelmed. I feel like everything that happen tonight was just a dream.
But I know is not. Everything that happen today was true. I was so embarrassed of how I was behaving all these days.
How oblivious I have been all this days. He has been in love with me all these days, and I didn’t know about it.
If I have known about it, I wouldn’t have treated him the way I did. But now that I know that he loves me, I don’t know what I feel towards him. What should I feel?
Do I love him? I don’t know. Do I like him? Maybe. Am I still scared of him? Nope. I guess I have to let time decide for me.
All this thinking made me exhausted that I went to sleep without realising myself.
The next morning I woke up earlier. I had a smile on. I know from today onwards will be different. I quickly got ready and went down.
I saw Mary making breakfast. “Good morning Mary!” I said cheerily. She turns towards me and smiled sweetly at me.
“Good morning Ms Cheery. Did something happen?” she asked questioningly.
“No. Nothing happen. Nada” I said quickly. She gave me a suspicious look before going back to making breakfast. “Good morning Mary” I heard a deep voice.
I knew it was him. “Good morning Dear. Take a sit. I’ll get breakfast for y’all.” she said as she turn back and look.
Soon I felt him sit beside him. I didn’t dare turn. I was too shy. I felt him coming closer to me. “Good morning Amelia” he said in a husky voice that, I felt butterflies in my stomach.
“G-Good morning.” I said still facing down. He took my face and made me look at him. He rubbed my red cheeks with his thumb which only resulted it becoming more redder.
“Don’t hide *your face from me, love.” he said barely in a whisper. “Ok” I whispered back. “Good.” he said back with a smile. He kept looking into my eyes. I found myself getting* lost in his blue eyes.
Suddenly someone cleared their throat which made me jump from my sit. I got embarrassed. Mary just laughed it off. Damien and I ate our breakfast together.
Once we were done I was about to go when he stopped me. “Amelia wait.” he called me. I turn to face him.
“I’ll drop you off.” he said with a smile I couldn’t resist. “Ok.” he gave me cheeky smile and we walked to his car. He open the car door and I got in as he jogged to driver’s car.
We soon hit the road. “So, tell me more about your school?” he asked me. Where do I start? “Well, I’m a senior.
I will be finishing high school end of this year. I am also waiting for my competition which will be taking a place in 2 months time.” I said finish.
“A competition? What competition?” he asked in surprise. “A dance competition.” I simply said.
“Oh you are a dancer I see. That’s interesting. ” he said and I sensed proudness in his voice. I simply smiled.
After some time, we reached. I waved goodbye and went inside.
He dropped me off outside the school, as I still wasn’t alright with people knowing I’m his wife. I didn’t want to become the talk of the school.
At least not now.
I smiled and walked to my locker and saw Ash waiting for me at my locker. As he saw me smiling like a crazy woman he gave me suspicious look.
I ignored him and start taking my books out. As I turn around, I was still smiling. “Ok spill. Why are you smiling like that?”
“Nothing.” I just shrugged. “Tell me the truth lady.” he insisted.
He said fustrated. I laugh at his reaction. “Ok fine.” so thats how I him everthing that happen yesterday. When I was finished, his mouth was wide open.
I couldnt help it but laugh uncontrollably. He just glared at me when I was laughing. After few minutes I sobered up.
“So that’s why he ‘kidnapped’ me yesterday.” he said with a thinking face. “He didn’t kidnapped you technically.” I said while rolling my eyes.
“Yeah whatever.” he waved me off. Soon the bell rang and that’s how I started my day.
The day went by fast. And soon here I was waiting for Damien to pull up.
As I was waiting for Damien to pull up, it started to rain. I couldn’t help it but get wet in the rain and play.
I looked around and saw no one was there. I had stayed back longer than usual as I was rehearsing for the dance competition.
By the time I was done, everyone has left. It was Friday so I wasn’t expecting any less. Here I was in the middle of the road dancing like a fool that I was.
I didn’t care about anything to be honest. I loved the rain. Somehow it comforted me.
For a few minutes I was just spinning and running around. As I stood there enjoying the rain,
I felt two arms circling around me. Startled I turn around and saw Damien. My heart was racing being startled. My breathing was uneven.
He was looking right into my eyes. His blue oceanic eyes were gazing at my hazelnut brown eyes.
The rain was drops were dripping from his forehead down to the tip of his nose and pass through his lips and disappeared to his chest.
He looked different. His hair was messy and wet. His eyes looked more intimidating, his lips looks so kissable and his white button up hugged his muscles.
I felt him inching closer to me. I don’t know what came over me, but I noticed myself inching closer to him.
Before I can think, he was kissing me. And automatically, I responded to it. His lips was sweet yet salty due to the rain.
There was fireworks going on in my head. The kiss started of slow and soft. But soon, his lips started to move in quick motion.
I was barely able to keep up to his pace. After what felt like hours we pulled apart. We were both breathing heavily.
We didn’t know what to speak who to start the conversation. I couldn’t stand the tension so I ended up speaking first.
“So erm” I didn’t know what else to say. “Amazing” he completed first. I couldn’t help but laugh. We both ended up laughing.
What we didn’t realise was that the rain has stopped. “You wanna head back?’ he asked me. I nodded to his question.
We got into his car and drove back home. Went we got back home, Mary scolded and lectured us about us getting wet in the rain.
We both stood there like kids who is getting scolding for stealing cookies.
After a long hour of scolding, we both went to take a shower not wanting to catch the cold.
As soon we arrived back to dinning area, Mary served us with our food, beginning with a soup.
All the while Mary was glaring at us, so we didn’t end up speaking. Once we were done with our food, we slowly made our way up.
As I was about to go to my room, “Hey.” he called me.
I turn around and faced him. “D-Do you wanna like sleep in our room?” he asked so softly I barely heard.
I froze at my spot. Did he just say our bed? And invited me to sleep with him? I didnt know what to say to him.
I know I like him. But sleeping in the same bed as him? I don’t know how to answer him. After the kiss I shared with him today, I feel more comfortable with him. I feel more closer to him.
I dwelled on it for awhile before answering him. “Sure.” I guess why not. After all we are married. I know he wouldn’t do anything that I wouldn’t want him to do. So I agreed.
He smiled so wide, I could see all of his 32 teeth. The smile of his brought an instant smile onto my face.
We walked to his, our, room. The last I was in his room, I didn’t take a proper look at it. It was too dark to see the room anyways.
As I entered the room, with the lights on, my mouth hung low. On the wall that was on top of the bed, was our wedding photo. It was huge. So big I wondered how it actually fit the wall.
Seeing this he chuckled. “Close your mouth, love” he said as I got embarrassed.
The picture was so beautiful. Except for the part I was frowning. In actual the picture didn’t give the look where I was frowning.
If anyone to see this, they’ll think we are a happy married couple.
The photographer indeed did a good job. “You coming? ” he asked. I didn’t realize I was standing there just staring at the picture.
“Yes.” I said as I walked to the bed. I took the left side of the bed while he took the right.
He patted the spot and I quickly jumped into the bed. He chuckles at my behaviour.
After turning off the lights we went to sleep.
But honestly we were just staring at each other. We both couldn’t take our eyes away from each other.
His hands start to caress my cheeks. I couldn’t stop the blush that was forming in my cheeks.
“So beautiful.” he whispered. If it was possible my cheeks became more redder. His thumbs caressed my lips as his hand travelled to the nape of my neck.
“Don’t worry. I’ll not do anything you are not comfortable with.” he assured me.
I nodded my head. “Good night Amelia” he said as he kissed my forehead.
Before I could say goodnight, I fell asleep. Before I could succumb to my sleep, I felt 2 strong arms embrace. With that comfort I went to sleep.
I need to pee. That is what I want to do now. But I am unable to do that as there is a pair of arms around me that wouldn’t let go.
I tried to wake him but he wouldn’t bulge. I tried to squeeze out of him but still no vail. I huffed in annoyance.
I have tried to tickle him. Poke him. Call him. But nothing is working. Then I had an idea.
I went near to his ear scream as loud as I can. Hearing this, he woke up startled. As I saw his reaction, I started to laugh uncontrollably.
He gave me a confused look before he understood on what is going on. When he realised he gave a mischievous look. As he came closer, I quickly got up and went to the bathroom and lock it.
Once I was done with my business, I came out only to be lifted off the floor by two strong arms. I started squealing as he turn me around in circles. “Let me go.” I said as I giggle.
“Not after the little stunt.” he said as he kept turning me around in circle. I started feeling giddy. “Alright I’m sorry.’ I said and that’s when he let me down.
I turn around and glare at him. Which to he only laugh. I couldn’t help it but laugh along with him.
After sobering up we just stare into each others eye. I realise that this has become our thing.
“Come on. I have to tell you something. We’ll discuss it over breakfast.” he said to which I just nodded my head. We headed to dining area. I expected to see Mary but she wasn’t there.
“Where is Mary?” I asked him. “Mary doesn’t stay for the weekends.” Is all he said. “Oh.” Is all I said back. “What would you like for breakfast?” he asked me.
“Cereals would do.” I said. “You sure?” I nodded my head. He took out the milk and cereals and start poring in two bowls.
He placed one in front of me. We started eating when I remembered he wanted to talk about something.
“You said you wanted to talk about something?” I asked him. “Yeah. About that,” he paused. I urged him to continue.
“I might have to go overseas tomorrow.” he said. I stared at him blankly. Something in me wanted to ask him not to go.
But I refrained.
“I’ll be back in 3-4 days.” he said finish. He was staring at me for some kind of reaction. But honestly I have no idea how to react.
I just nodded my head and continue to eat my cereal. I felt something heavy in me. I just couldn’t pin point what is it.
Suddenly I felt 2 fingers lifting my chin. He made me look at him. “Hey, don’t worry alright.
I will be back faster than you imagine.” he assured me. I just nodded my head not able to form any kind of voice.
“Today we are gonna do anything you want alright.” he said smilingly. I smiled back in return.
_________________________Arranged to him
( You are mine )
Its been one and half months since he has been in a coma. He has been transferred back home.
The doctors thought it is better for him to be somewhere he is accustomed too.
I have been in his side the entire side. I never went to school. I had stopped eating properly.
The first week in his coma I didn’t eat anything at all. I didn’t even shower fearing he might wake up then.
Ash swing by everyday bringing in my school staff and to check up on me. He always encouraged me to be strong for him.
I wanted to be beside him when he wakes up. But my Dad and mum made me eat and shower.
Yap. My dad, mum and Olivia came rushing down when they heard about. I ended crying in their shoulders when they came.
Mary insisted that I go to school, stating she can look after him. But I declined. I wanted to be by his side. I need to be by his side. That’s the only way I can be strong.
Right now I am sitting beside him in the bed holding onto his hand. Its night time. Mary knocked on the door and came in.
“I’m leaving now dear. Do you need anything?” she asked me softly as if I might break anytime. I just shook my head. She just sighed and left. Before she left,
“He’ll wake up. He’ll do anything for you. He will break hell just to be with you.” she said assuring. I just gave a small nod.
She quietly left. I heard the front door shut. After staring at his face tears begin to drop on their own.
I stood up and went to my jewellery box and picked up the note. I came back to sit beside him.
I read the note aloud to him.
Sorry I left without telling
I didn’t want to wake you up.
You looked tired.
I will come back soon.
You can call me anytime you want.
I’m gonna miss you.
I love you so much.
“You promised. You promised you will come back soon. YOU PROMISED!” I yelled.
“You were supposed to come back to me. We were supposed to know more about each other.”
“I still remembered the last thing you told me. You said you love me.” I said as I start to crying. “I’m so sorry that I never tell it to you back.” I cried clutching his hands.
“Please come back to hear me say I love you. Yes. I love you. I love you so damn much.
Just please come back to me.” I stated as my head fell on our hands weeping.
“I-I love you too.” I gasped when I heard this. I quickly got up when I heard.
There he was. His eyes open, smiling. I couldn’t believe it. He tried to sit up.
I regain from my shock and went to help him. Once helping him, I checked to see if he was ok. He asked for some water and I hurriedly went to get him that.
I passed him the glass of water to him. After drinking he passed me as I kept it in the bed side. “You are awake.” I said as happy tears starts to form.
He cupped my cheeks. “Yes I am, love.” he said staring at me. I quickly went to hug him.
He hugged me back. We hugged as if this is our last time hugging each other and we need to savour this moment.
After minutes, we let each other go reluctantly. “I missed you.” I said softly. “I did too.” he said. “You promised you will come back soon. You promised me.” I said as I pouted angrily at him.
“I know, love. And I’m sorry.” he said as he hugged me again. I laid in his chest. “I heard that when I come back, you will tell me something.” he said looked down at me.
I knew what he was talking about. I start to blush. “Come on. Tell me. I woke up from a coma just to hear that.” he said.
I cleared my throat,” I-I love you” I said softly. He grabbed my face. “Look into my eyes and tell me, love” he said while looking into my eyes.
I looked into his eyes. They were yearning, begging. “I love you.” I said emphasising them. Tears start to form. Happy tears.
His eyes flicked to my lips and back to my eyes. I knew he was debating. Confused.
Without thinking much, I closed the gaps of our lips. He was surprised but start to kiss me back. I felt hunger, longing and love in the kiss.
It was deep and satisfying. Something we both needed to assure our self that this is real.
He pulled me closer and I ended up straddling him. Just then I remembered something. I quickly pulled away.
Seeing this he frowned. I quickly got up. Before I could go he grabbed my hands. “Is something wrong? Did I do something wrong?” he asked as I saw sadness form.
“What? God no. I’m supposed to call the doctor once you are awake.” I explained as I sit beside him. “That can wait till tomorrow morning.”
he said. “But-” “No buts. I’m tired and so are you.” he said as he pulled me beside him.
He is right. I am so tired. So agreeing to him, we went to sleep. He pulled me close to him. He start to play with my hair locks.
“I was so scared. I thought you were gonna leave me.” I said as fear consumed me. “I will never leave you. I will break hell to be with you.”
he said. I laughed at that. “Why are you laughing?’ he asked me. “Mary said the same thing.”
He just chuckled. Soon sleep consumed us as we both fell asleep in each other’s arms. I have my husband back.
Here I am standing waiting for the doctor to say something as he checked. “Well he’s statics are normal. Everything is normal. Just make sure he takes good rest. No stress for the time being. Follow the medication that I have prescribed.” he stated as he got his medical kit.
“You sure doc? He’s completely fine right?” I asked worried. Both the doc and Damien chuckled. “Im sure Mrs Mariano.” he assured me. I nodded my head at him.
“I’ll show him out.” Marry suggested. With her left, it was left with Albert, my mum, my dad and my sister.
Albert went and took a sit next to Damien. “You gave all of us heart attack, my son.” he said as he pat his shoulder. Damien chuckled at that.
“I’m a Mariano. We are tough.” he said with a smirk. “That we are son.” he said as he suddenly hugged him. I just admired the moment.
After that my dad, mum and sister went together to tell their well wishes. It was a heart warming scene to see. The four of them came to me to reassure me and left.
Once sending them off I went back to see Damien. He was trying to take water. I quickly rushed to get him water.
“You could have asked me.” I said. “Love, I was just in a coma. Not paralyzed.” he smirked as he drank the water.
“Still…” I dragged. “Well if that’s what you want, then that’s what you’ll have. You will be playing nurse.” he joked. I hit his arm playfully.
He pulled me into a hug. I relaxed into his arms. We both took a deep breathe. I was dreading to ask him the question. But I need to.
“May I ask you something?’ I questioned. “Anything, Love.” he said as he kissed my hair. “What happened that day?” When I asked him this his took a sharp breath.
“I was coming home to surprise you that day. I told you it was gonna take some more time, but I actually finished earlier.
I was so damn excited to come and see you, to hold you. So I sped. I didn’t realise about the track and it hit me.” he explained.
I started to tear up. Sensing it, he quickly took my face into his hands. “Why are you crying dear?” he asked with a worried expression.
“This is all my fault. You were in the accident because of me.” I said as I sobbed. His face held a shock expression.
“What! No. This is on me. I was speeding. Its not your fault. Don’t blame it on you. I wanted to rush home to see.
I sped. I was reckless. Not you.” he said as he kissed my cheeks.
I nodded my head in understanding. He kissed my forehead, both cheeks, nose eyes.
He stared deeply into my eyes before slowly leaning in for a kiss.
The kiss sent sparks down my spine. It was slow at first. But soon it was fast paced. His hands travelled from my face to my waist.
Within seconds he grabbed my waist and turned me around so that I was laying flat in the bed and he was hovering above me.
He kept kissing when suddenly someone knocked the door. Both Damien and me quickly sat.
Both of our face was flushed. I asked the person to come in. Mary came in after that.
“Lunch is ready”. She stated coming in. Once she come in and saw our flushed face, she cleared her throat and left.
Both Damien were looking at each other before laughing. We laughed till our face fell off.
I admired him laughing. I missed it so much. “I missed this.” I said softly.
He brought our faces close until our head was against each other. “Me too.” he said as he sighed.
We both gathered our self and head down for lunch. I made sure he walked carefully and slowly. “So how is you dance practice going?” he asked suddenly. I stopped abruptly. SHIT!
I totally forgot about it. “What happen?” he asked me. I sighed. “I will tell you in awhile.” I said as we went to our dinning area. I let him take a sit first.
He raised his eyebrow at me. I took in a deep breathe. “So you see how you were in a coma for 1 and half month?” I said hoping he doesn’t get mad. He nodded his head.
“Well I haven’t gone to school during the entire period.” I finished off. “What! Why?” he asked surprised. “Because I wanted to be beside you when you wake up.
I was scared if I left you even for a second you might wake up and I wouldn’t be there.” I said as I looked down.
He lifted my chin up. “Thank you so much, love. I love you so much. Thank you for everything.” He said as he smiled at me.
“I love you too.” I said back. He smiled at me brightly as he pulled me in for a kiss. The kiss was short and quick but sweet.
Soon Mary came in with our breakfast. Mary and Damien started talking to each other while I just stared at them.
Once we were done, Damien turn to me. “So how long for your competition?” he asked me. “2 weeks more.” I said back cas
