YOU ARE MINE: 6-10
DOPERCH.COM: Arranged to him
( You are mine )
Hearing those words made me froze. I never had my first kiss. I certainly did not want him to be my first kiss. I totally forget about it.
While I was panicking I didn’t realise that he was leaning in.
I started to tremble. As he was just a few inches away I quickly turn so that he end up kissing my cheeks.
I gasped when his lips just touched my cheeks. It was warm and tingly. When he pulled away, I saw him frown but he brushed it off when everyone started to clap. I guess no one saw that.
With everyone clapping, he took my hand and walked me down. We walked down the aisle and as I reached the end of the aisle, I got ready to throw the bouquet.
When I throw it behind I heard a few squeals. I turn to see it was Olivia who caught it. I smiled at that. We went indoor for the groom and bride reception.
It started with the scary man and me cutting the cake. I tried to make as much space as there could be between us as I did not want to stand beside him.
Once we had cut the cake, we were led to seat in a table for the bride and groom. Then people start giving speech. Few I know and many I don’t now.
Lastly my dad’s came for the speech. “Thank you everyone for coming today. I really appreciate all of you coming today. I cant believe that my cupcake got married.
It is like she was born yesterday only. And today she is married. Hopefully she is happy for the rest of her life.” he said as he was almost in tears.
I tried to not to cry. Will I be happy with him? I don’t know why but I am so scared of him. Maybe it was the threat he gave when we first met. I don’t know but he scares me.
“Lets have the bride and groom give their first dance.” My dad say as everyone claps. I internally groan. I don’t want to dance with him. ‘Please don’t make me dance with him’ I prayed.
But it did not happen. The scary man stretched out his hand for me take. I stood up while lightly holding his hands.
It was a feather touch.
Soon ‘Give me love’ by Ed Sheeran came and we started to waltz for it. I was looking down the entire time.
I did not dare look up. To tell the truth I was always not the tall girl. But standing in front of him make me look like a dwarf.
“Look at me.’ he said suddenly making me flinch. I shook my head and continue to dance. I heard him sigh but let it go.
Soon we were done people start to clap. We went back to our table.
The rest of time some people came and went and soon some of them started to talk about business with the scary man. I took that as my chance to get out of there.
I searched for Ash. I spotted him and dragged him out. “Hello Mrs Mariano.” he started and I glared up at him which shut him up.
“Why did you come out?” he asked me. “I was feeling overwhelmed inside. I needed some air.” I said as I shrugged.
He sighed as we sat down in the steps. We went quiet as we stared at the nothing. “I just realised that I never got to dance with you inside.” he said as we started to laugh. ” Seriously” I asked.
“Yes seriously.” he said. Suddenly he stood up. “My lady, may I have this dance.” he said in British accent. “Of course.” I said back in a British accent.
We started to dance like goofy people. We were randomly dancing to no particular song. And for once in that evening, I felt happy and relieved.
Soon we were done and went back to seat. I went back to staring at the sky with my head on his shoulder.
“Ash?” I called out. “Hmm” he hummed back. ” I am scared.” I said honestly. He sighed. ” Look Mia. I know you are scared. But you are strong person. Always remember that.” he said as he reassured me.
I nodded my head at him.
That is when I heard my dad’s voice. “There you are. What are you doing here? We were looking for you.” he said. Before I could answer, he started to talk.
“Lets go. It is time for you to go.” he said making me tear up. I hugged him. “I don’t want to go daddy.” I said.
“I know sweetie. But you have to.” he sighed. I shook my head. “I will always love you my cupcake.” he said. I laughed at the nickname.
He nodded at me. My dad, Ash and I went back. Once I went back in, I realised not many people were left. There were only very few guest left.
As I went the entire family was standing, My mum came to me hug me. “My baby. I am gonna miss you.” she said as she sobbed. I comforted as I pat her back.
Soon my sister came. “My baby sister. Take care of yourself. ” she said as she hugged me.
Followed by my dad. “I am gonna miss you cupcake, Don’t forget to come and visit this old man.” he said as we both chuckled.
Finally It was Ash. I hugged him as I mumbled “I love you, stultus (Idiot) ” I said which he chuckled. Soon we pulled apart. Next was Mr Mariano.
“Welcome to the family, my dear.” he said as he gave me a fatherly hug which I return. Soon it was time for me to go. I said my goodbye and followed the scary man.
He was walking very fast which made it very hard for me to catch up to him. I had to do a slow jog in order to catch up with him.
Soon we reached the car which was very well decorated. He opened the door for me and I quickly went in not wanting to make him wait. He went to the other side and got in.
The driver started the engine and we were off.
Here comes my new home.
The tension in the car was intense that it could be cut with a knife. I dare not talk or move.
It was becoming uncomfortable sitting in the same position. But I rather sit in the same position then to make a single move.
The scary man was keep clenching and unclenching his hands. It was obvious he was pissed but I don’t know why and I don’t want to know either.
Whoever he is pissed at, well, good luck to the person.
It felt like hours that we were travelling in the car.
I started to think that we were going out of the town. God no please. Don’t tell me he is going to bring me out of the town and kill me.
I mean he won’t kill me, Right? Or would he? As I was pondering on the thought of whether he is going to kill me or not, the car came to a abrupt stop.
I look out to see we have reached wherever we are supposed to be at. I jumped as I heard a sudden slam. I see to the other side and realise the scary man was no more sitting beside me. He must have left.
I took a deep breath and got out of the car. Just then then the driver came to open my door. I thanked with a nod.
“Mam, please go inside. Your things will be inside.” He said and I nodded at him. I took small steps and walked in the walkway that leads to my new ‘ home’. It feels weird to even say that.
Soon I reached the porch. The door was opened and I entered. As I step inside, I was mesmerized by the beauty. It was beautiful.
It didn’t look that modern neither did it look blunt. It was really breath taking.
I was admiring the beauty that I didn’t realise someone was standing beside me. She cleared her throat to gain my attention.
I quickly turn around and saw a lady smiling at me sweetly. “Sorry.” I squeaked out. I felt embarrassed. “Its ok Child.” She chuckled as she dismissed me off.
“My name is Mary Willows” She said as smiled at me. “Well Mrs Willows, I am,” I started but unable to finish.
“Oh please call me Mary. And I know who you are, Amelia Mariano.” She said. Right Change of surname. Great.
I saw my stuff in the living room and went to grab them.
There were a few boxes and few suitcases.
Looks like my family cleared my entire room. Thanks mum and dad. (Note the sarcasm) I thought to myself.
I turned around to ask the lady where am I staying before she beat me to it. “Mr Mariano’s room is upstairs. I will have some people to send your stuff up.” she said as I frown.
I am not gonna stay together with him in his room. I quickly shake my head. “Can I use the guestroom please. ” I asked. She frown. “But,” she started but I didn’t let her complete.
“Please” I begged her again. She sighed and nodded her head. I grabbed a suitcase and the two boxes while Mary brought a suitcase and a box. We walked upstairs and she brought me a room that was at the end of the hallway.
She entered and left the boxes and came out. “If you want anything don’t hesitate to call me Amelia.
” She said as she smiled at me. “Sure. And please call me Mia.” I said while she smiled and left. I entered the room while I left my stuff where Mary had left.
I closed the door and took a deep breath. Everything that happened today dawn on me now. I got married to a man whom I am scared off. He hates me and said he will become my worst nightmare.
As I thought about all of this, tears starts to flow on its own. I don’t want any of this. I thought to myself. I slide down and start to cry.
I cried for some time before I realised I still was in my wedding dress. I opened up my suitcase and took out my black PJ romper. I saw two doors.
I went to open the nearest one and saw that it was a walk in closet. It looked classy and luxurious. I should start unpacking if I am gonna stay here.
I opened another door. It was the bathroom It looks just like the walk in closet. Classy and luxurious.
I entered the bathroom and got out of the wedding dress and slipped onto my PJ. I washed of the make up and cleansed my face.
Once I was done I entered back to the room. When I entered the room, did I realise how tired I was. I switched off the lamps and went straight to bed letting sleep take over me.
DOPERCH.COM: Arranged to him
( You are mine )
“I will say whether the deal is worth it or not. Not you!” I yelled in the phone and hanged up.
I was starting to have an headache and the investors are not helping me. I really needed a coffee and there seems not to be a single café for crying out loud. I am seriously starting to get pissed.
Everyone is scared of me and they should be too. That’s when I get what I want done. If they do not fear me they’ll never do what I want and I’ll never get what I want and I always get what I want. ALWAYS.
After so long of searching I finally found a Café.
I quickly parked and got down. I was rushing to get a coffee when someone suddenly bumped into me. I quickly got angry and started to glare at the person.
When I looked down, it was a girl who reached my chest barely. I did not why but all of a sudden I felt like protecting this girl from all evilness and darkness.
She slowly raised her head up to look up at me. And I was dumbfound.
I was mesmerized by her big doe eyes. She held so much of innocence and purity, I couldn’t move. I kept looking at her. She started to ramble a bunch of apologies.
But I couldn’t do anything. I kept looking at her. Suddenly I snapped out of everything. I am a dangerous person.
Everyone should fear me. But something deep down wished she was the only person who does not fear me. I snapped out of my daydream.
I scoffed at her and put up my hands to stop her from rambling. She quickly kept quiet.
I started to move forward and she got afraid and moved back until she was against the wall. I was an inch away from her and her smell hit me strong. It somehow calmed me.
But still I put up the strong and tough exterior. She looked down to avoid my gaze. I stared at her before speaking.
“How dare you bump on me? Do you know who am I?” I spoke dangerously. She vigorously shook her head and continued to looked down.
“I could be your worst nightmare.” I whispered slowly into her ears. I heard her gasp.
She started to quiver and apologising and how she was late for her school. When she was apologising and scared something in me felt uneasy.
I wanted to see into her eyes again. I hold up her chin and made her look at me.
When I looked into her eyes it was as if I forgot everything that was happening around me. I just continued to stare into her eyes, I couldn’t bring myself from looking into her eyes.
After sometime I found the strength to look away. I took a deep breath and let her go and backed away. She quickly took the chance to run away, As she was running away I kept looking at her.
All I wanted to do was run to her and pull her into my arms and never let her go.
I quickly shook my head and when back to my car. I decided I did not need the coffee anymore.
I got into the car and quickly drove off. On the way to my Office I couldn’t help but think of the girl. She was simply dead gorgeous and magnificent.
She carried this light with her. Her innocence was driving me crazy. Damn it I need to get her out of my head. She maybe a stranger but she is now stuck in my head. I quickly drove off to the office so that I wouldn’t miss the meeting.
Within fifteen minutes I reached my office. I quickly got on to my private lift and went up to my office. And yes I have a private lift. I don’t like sharing what is mine. And also I need my privacy.
Soon I reached my office. I prepared myself for the meeting and went to the meeting room. As the meeting started and the board member started speaking, my mind drifted off to the girl I met in the café.
Why on earth is she keep coming into my mind. What was so special about her? I have dated several models before but no one has disturbed me the way she had.
I realised I lost focus on the meeting and decided to postpone the meeting. I told everyone to reschedule and walked out off the meeting room. I retreated back to my office room.
Once I entered I poured myself a whiskey. I don’t understand what is going on with me. Why is she disturbing me so much. Damn her eyes is alluring. They held so much innocence.
I found myself getting in lose of them. Words just couldn’t be formed when I was looking at them. She held me prison in her eyes. They held so much light and purity, I have never felt myself drawn to someone in the way I have been drawn to her.
I quickly came back to reality when I heard the door being open. I got irritated on the peron for not knocking. When I turned to see who is it, it turned out to be my dad.
I chewed my words back. “Good morning son.” my father greeted me. “Good morning dad.” I greeted my dad back. I was always formal to everyone whether its family, my employees or friends.
“What brings you here?” I asked him. “I bring news my son.” My father told me. I raised my eyebrows in question.
That’s when he told me something that got me shocked and confused.
“You are getting married my son.”
“You are getting married.”
Those words got me jolt up from the chair sending my chair flying back. “WHAT DO YOU MEAN?” I yelled at my father. He flinched at my voice and glared back at me.
“I mean what I say, my son.” he simply stated. “Look you always worked hard to get the company to its best. Now we have the chance my son.”
“What do you mean?” I asked my dad confused. ” One of my friend and I had the idea collaborating the company. And the only way to do that is when you marry his daughter.” he explained.
“Not only that. When you were born, it was already decided that you marry one of his daughter.” he finished.
I started to think about it. If by marrying the girl, I will get my company to number 1 than I won’t care. My company always come to me first.
But suddenly the girl that I met outside the café came into my mind. I quickly shook off the thought. There is no way I will meet the girl again anyway. So why waste my time on her.
Something in me was against the proposal of my father. But the future of company made me say the next words.
“Fine I will marry the girl.” I said instantly regretting. My father looked at me shocked. “You serious my son?” my father asked me confused.
I rolled my eyes at my father’s reaction. “Yes father. If by marrying the girl I can get the company to number 1 then why not.” I answered my father’s unheard question.
He finally recover from his shock. “Thank you so much my son.” he said. “We are going to meet the girl and the family today.” he informed. “Whatever” I muttered and went back to my work.
He exited the room soon. Once he left the room my hands automatically stopped working. I started to reconsider the choice.
I don’t know why but the girl’s face keep coming into my mind. No matter what I do I keep having her disturbing me. Urgh. This is so irritating.
I pushed everything and start to focus on my work.
In the evening
I somehow managed to finish all my work. To say I wasn’t distracted will be an understatement. But I managed to finish everything.
Just then my dad walked into my office. “You ready my son?’ he asked me. “For what?” I asked back confused. ” To see the girl and her family, remember I told you.” he reminded me.
I totally forgot about it. “You forgot about it didn’t you?” he asked with a pointed look. I just glared back at him. “Give me few minutes I will be with you. Wait for me at the parking lot.” I said and started to pack my stuff.
He just nod his head and left. I quickly start to pack my stuff. Once having my table clean, I arranged my stuff. I needed my place to be tidy.
Sooner or later I was done with it. I took my staff and made my way to the parking lot. On my way there, I was keep my thinking about my decision.
There was no chance of me meeting the girl again. She is just some random girl. I don’t even know her name. I know nothing about her.
At least by getting married to this girl I will be able to get my company to number 1.
So without any further thinking I made my way to the parking lot. Once I was there I saw my dad waiting for me there.
My Dad and I got in our car and were off to meet the girl and her family.
I don’t know what was I expecting to say the truth. I never thought about marriage or anything. I always focused on my company and business. Now that my dad is making me marry, I have no idea what to think about.
To say honestly all I am thinking about right now is the girl that I met outside the café. She is simply stunning. I am feeling bad for threatening her.
I always loved it when people feared me. But when I saw fear in her eyes that was directed to me, I felt odd.
What am I saying? I shouldn’t be thinking about her. Especially now that I am going to marry another girl.
Sooner or later my dad and I arrived at their placed. Their place looked quite astonishing to say honestly.
It looked homely from the outside.
We parked the car and head to their doorstep, My dad rang the door bell. We were a greeted by a woman who looked to be in her early 40s.
“Oh my god their here. Honey they are here. Please come in.” she invited us in politely.
She gave this warm motherly feel. We entered and were asked to sit down in the living room. Soon a man who looked to be my father’s age came down.
“Albert its so nice to see you.” he greeted my dad while they did their man hug. “Same here.” my dad greeted back.
“Damien is so nice to finally meet you. Your dad have told me so much about you.” he said while he pat my back. We all took our seat.
“Olivia come down darling.” The man called.
That’s when I saw a woman coming down. She was wearing a short dress with tons of make up. To be honest she looked more like a cake then a lady.
She came down and gave me a flirty smile. I wanted to roll my eyes. Every girl tries to flirt with me. I always preferred someone who was hard to get. Not barbie dolls.
“Come here and sit Olivia.” he father said. She took a seat in the couch that was beside me. Wow. “This is Olivia, Damien. You and she will be getting married soon.” My dad said. Great.
Note the sarcasm.
We talked for awhile. Soon we started to have dinner, done be Mrs knight. Once we were done everyone was indulged in the wedding conversation. While I was thinking about the Café girl.
How it would be to hear her sweet voice. Look into her bright blue eyes, and get lost in them. Pinch her chubby cheeks. Hug her so tight that no air would pass through us.
Have her soft lips against mine.
What am I doing. Here I am sitting in the house of the girl I am going to marry and thinking about another girl.
Just then the door bell rang. I got confused to who it was. Mrs Knight went to get the door. “That’s my second daughter.” Mr knight said.
I heard Mrs knight answer the door. “How many times should I tell you not to play in the rain?” she scolded. When she said that I wanted to chuckle but refrained. Wow. The sister seems to be an interesting person.
Just then I heard the most soothing voice in my life. “Mum whose car is outside?” I knew I have heard that voice. Its a voice I would not forget in a billion years,
Just then I saw her enter the living room.
The café girl.
[1/10, 5:04 PM] DOPERCH.COM: Arranged to him
( You are mine )
There she was. Standing there staring at me shocked. To say that I was shocked will be an understatement. But I didn’t show it.
It was like the world around me stopped for a moment. I never expected to see her again. But here she was standing in front of me.
Just then Mrs knight introduced my dad and me to her. She just stood there dumbfounded.
I could see mixture of shock and fear in her eyes. I didn’t understand as to why she was afraid. Just then I remembered what I told her in the café.
I mentally faced palmed myself. How stupid of me. Just then her father spoke up and asked her to get changed and come back to talk on what’s about to happen. After she left I was confused on what was going around me.
I never thought that I would see her again. Yet here she was. And I am about to get married to her sister. What kind of silly game is going around me. While all this was going around in my mind I saw her coming back down.
As soon as she took her last step her dad called her to sit. She quickly scurried and sat beside him. To be honest, I found that really cute. I realized she is a daddy’s girl. That’s so cute.
What am I thinking.
Her dad started explaining on what’s going on. While he was doing that, I couldn’t help it but stare at her.
Her hair was wet from being drenched in the rain. It reached below her waist. Her eyes were focused on her dad as she listen to everything he said carefully. Her fingers were fiddling with each other.
After her dad explained everything I could see that she was distressed.
She slowly looked up at me. When we made eye contact I couldn’t help it but stare at her. I couldn’t pull my sight away from her. Unable to handle my stare she looked away.
She told her dad that she wasn’t feeling good and wanted to head to bed. Her dad understood.
She softly muttered a goodbye to both my dad and me and left. When she left all I could do was stare at her when all I wanted to do was pull her to me and ask her not to go.
Once she left everyone went back to their conversations. Soon Olivia came to me and tried to make conversation. All I did was nod my head as she spoke.
The only thing I can think was about the cafe girl.
I have yet to know her name. Soon my dad and I were ready to go. We bid goodbye to everyone and left. I got in my car and left while my dad left in his car. I drove quickly back home.
As soon as I reached my house I parked my car in the garage and headed in. I quickly headed in for a shower.
After everything I went straight to my office room and started thinking. There is no way that I can marry Olivia. Especially now that I know that the café girl and she are sisters .
I should quickly come with a plan to stop this wedding. I need to know more about the café girl. Starting with her name.
In the beginning I decided that I should never think about the café girl only because I thought I would never see her again. And also because of the deal brought by my dad.
But now that I saw her, I have decided something.
She is mine.
I don’t know what is it about her. But it attracts me towards her. Her thoughts, her innocence, her eyes. Damn. Now she is the only thing that its in my mind.
With her in my mind I started to plot a plan. A plan that would make her mine. Sooner or later I came up with a plan. Once I execute this plan, she is gonna be all mine.
I got someone to get her details. By tomorrow morning I will know everything about her. With this in thought I went to sleep.
The next morning I was eagerly waiting in my office for the café girl details. I couldn’t wait for the anticipation. Just then the office phone rang. My secretary called up saying the person that I was waiting for has arrived.
I told her to quickly send him inside. Soon the detective came in.
“Good morning Mr Mariano.” he greeted me. I gave him a nod to come in. “Good morning Mr gilbert. Do you have what I asked for?” I quickly asked him. He nodded and handed me a file.
I quickly took the file from him. As much as I wanted to open the file right now, I wanted to read the file alone.
“Thank you for the work Mr Gilbert. You may leave now.” I said. He nodded his head and left. Once he left I quickly opened the file.
Once I opened the file, the first thing I saw was her face. She looked simply astonishing. It was of her laughing. Her eyes was sparkling as she was laughing.
I started reading the file.
Name: Amelia Roselle Knight
Age: 18 (soon)
Father’s name: Kristen Knight
Mother’s Name: Sophia Knight
Sister Name: Olivia Knight
Status: In High school.
When I read the last part I was very much delighted. She is Single. Amelia that’s her name. Its a cute name for a cute girl.
I really wanted to see her now. I quickly got someone to track where she was now. Here I come my love.
After getting someone to find out her current location, I went to the mall where I knew she would be. Parking my car, I went in search of her.
I went to each floor my eyes yearning for her. Searching for her high and low. My heartbeat increasing by second not being able to find her.
Finally giving up thinking she must have went home, I decided to go back. Just then I heard a pleasant laughter. It was inviting. It made something in me come alive. I turned to the source of the laughter. I couldn’t believe it.
It was her. She was sitting down in a restaurant. She was giggling and sticking her tongue out at her sister. It was such a cute sight to see.
Without me realising my legs were walking towards her.
Sensing my stare, she turned towards me. The moment her eyes made contact with mine, I swear my heartbeat stopped for a sec. After some time she quickly turned away.
Just then her sister squealed stating I was here. I swear this girl is obsessed with me. Olivia waved at me. I went over and stand beside their table hovering over them. “Hi Damien.” Olivia gushed as she saw me. I just nodded at her.
“I did not know you were coming.” she stated I quickly came up with a lie. “I came to have lunch with a friend. And he couldn’t make it so I am going back.” I stated hoping she will invite me to have lunch with them.
“Why don’t you join us?’ She asked me. “Sure.” I replied. I drag a chair that was beside Olivia and set it in a way I could look at Amelia. After settling in, I ordered my food. Olivia started to talk. I wasn’t paying much attention to what she was saying.
I only hummed to everything whatever she was saying. All this while, I was stealing glances at Amelia. She was simply amazing. I could tell that she was zoning out. But I just continued to stare at her. She was beautiful and simple.
That was what which made her unique. She did not had to try to be beautiful. She was born beauty. Without her realising boys would swoon over her. That is not something I would want. I want all her beauty just for myself.
Only for me. I need her to all myself. She only belongs to me. No one else. Her beauty, innocence, love, touch and care. I want it to all myself.
Just then a waiter came and set our food. While he was serving the food I realised he was staring at her. When I looked at Amelia, she was blushing. This made me furious. Only I get to make her blush and turn her cheeks red.
After serving the food, the prick went away. The more I look at him, the more furious I got.
The entire time I was just glaring at him He was kept stealing glances at my girl. And that infuriated me. I wanted to pluck out his eyeballs with my folks.
Soon we were finished and requested for the bill. The prick came back with our bill. I *wanted to take the chance to pay the bill to impress my girl. But Olivia started to argue on paying. I insisted to* pay the bill but she went on arguing.
Soon the prick was here with the bill. I really thought that he was going to give the receipt to me to pay the bill but he gave the bill to my girl.
Both Olivia and me stop to argue and stared at Amelia. She took the bill and start to fiddle with it. I realised something.
There was something written in the bag of the bill. I quickly took the bill and payed the bill amount.
When I turned and look at the back of the bill I realised there was a phone number written in it. I then guess it was his number. I was glaring holes at the back at his number. I don’t know how long I was staring at the paper.
I cleared my throat. “Excuse me, I have somewhere to go.” I said and quickly left. I rushed to my car.
I sped not caring about the speed limit. Once reaching my office I carelessly parked my car and strike inside the building, everyone quickly moving away, not wanting to get in my way.
Upon reaching my office, I bang close my door, and started to throw away all the things making a mess, and I did not care about it. I quickly called my manager.
He soon rushed into the room. “I want you to get Adrian from the restaurant in the mall fired. NOW!” I all but yelled. He quickly mumbled a ‘yes sir’ and left.
I was still boiling inside. I did not like the way he was looking at MY GIRL. MY LOVE. SHE IS MINE. ALL MINE.
Wait what am I saying? I am going to get married to Olivia. How can I call her mine? This is so confusing. But I know one thing for sure. I have to make her mine no matter what. She has to be mine.
I need to come up with a plan that would make her mine. Just then I remembered, that dad and I going to her house for dinner. I can’t wait to meet her. The sight of her makes me elated.
Here I come my love.
DOPERCH.COM: *Arranged to him*
( You are mine )
I put on my 3 piece, and got in my car and drove to their house. The more nearer I got there, the more excited I got.
Soon I pulled into their doorstep and just then so did my dad. I got out and met my father. “You cleaned up quite good, my son.” My father complimented me while I just nodded to it.
We rang the bell and waited for them. I really wished it was Amelia who opened the door. Sadly it was her mother.
Once we entered, my eyes automatically searched for Amelia. Just when we stepped in, she was walking down.
“There you are sweetie, come join us *.” Her father said. Just then, Olivia stood beside me and hooked her arms around mine and started* to giggle. I mentally rolled my eyes.
We headed to the living room and I was forced to sit beside Olivia. Amelia was sitting in the opposite couch and my father was sitting in the middle couch.
My father and Mr Knight started talking about the company. Olivia started talking some crap about her modeling job.
I looked at Amelia to find herself sitting alone. Bored. I really wanted to talk to her. But I have no idea where to start.
As I tried to start to make a conversation, she took her phone out and start texting someone.
While she was texting, I saw her smiling at her phone and laughing. Which obviously pissed me. I want to make her smile. Not the person who she is texting. Wow.
I just realised how much of a jealous person I have become. Normally I would not really care about a girl. But this girl here made my entire world turn 360 degrees.
Before I can ask her who she is texting, my dad spoke up. Thanks dad. Note the sarcasm.
“Mia.” My dad called out to her. She shifted her attention to my dad. “Yes Mr Mariano?” she asked back with such innocence.
“Oh please call me Albert. Mr Mariano make me sound like I am old.” My dad joked. I rolled my eyes. my father thinks he is still young. Amelia smiled and nodded.
“Tell me more about yourself dear.” my dad asked. Now I am interested. I get to know more about my girl.
“There’s nothing much to tell about myself.” she said back. Bullshit.
“Oh come on, there must be something” My dad insisted.
“Well I’m in high school and in my senior year.” she simply stated. I realised she is a simple girl. She is so beautiful and smart yet doesn’t boast about.
“That’s nice *. What have you thought for your future? Do you plan on taking your Dad’s business?” My dad continued. I would let her do whatever* she wants. All she need to do is ask and she will have it.
“I am not *sure. I want to do a degree in computer science. After that I am not quite sure yet.” she stated simply. So my girl is IT girl. That is interesting. I will make her dream come* true.
“That’s nice sweetheart. Good to know you have interest on your future.” My father *said with a smile. I can feel that he likes Amelia. Of course he does. Who doesn’t. There is nothing to not like anything* about her.
Just then Mrs Knight called us for dinner. I, so badly, wanted to sit beside my girl. But Olivia forced that I sit beside her. Instead I decided to sit opposite Amelia where I can see her face very clearly.
We all start to eat. Amelia was really enjoying her *food. The way she ate was so cute. Normally people will fake on how they eat in front of others. But she was simply herself. She didn’t mind who was* watching her. Which kind of make her look sexy.
My dad started to compliment on how good the food was. I got to say the food was good. But my entire attention was on the girl who was sitting opposite of me.
She realised my gaze and looked up. As soon as she made eye contact with me, she gulped and stared down.
She continued to eat her food when her phone pinged. She checked her food and started texting the person.
While she was eating she kept texting. Not only that she kept smiling. At one point, she laughed out loud, that the entire table stared at her.
I couldn’t help it but glare at her phone, imagining the phone to be the person and wished that my glares would actually hurt the person.
She apologised and kept her phone away. After dinner, Olivia started to talk again which was very annoying. I wanted to ask her to shut up but I was trying to build a good impression in front of my girl.
I didn’t bother to listen to what she was saying and only was looking at Amelia. She was talking to her mum. She was simply stunning in the pink dress. The way the dress fitted her. It was simple but damn did it make her look super hot.
She did not put on make up but her skin felt flawless. The way her lips moved when she was talking made me wished they were tied with mine.
Her melting voice made me wonder how my name would sound like coming from her. While I was day dreaming about her, Olivia phone ranged. She excused herself.
I went back to gazing Amelia when I had an idea. I cleared my throat. “Mrs Knight I would like to use your washroom if you don’t mind.” I asked.
“Oh sure. And please call me Sophia. Mia why don’t you guide this gentleman and guide back.” She said. That is exactly what I wanted to hear.
Amelia nodded her head. I stood up waiting for her. She quickly stood up and nodded at me to follow her.
We went down the hallway. I was following her close behind. She had her head down. Once we reached the washroom she came to a halt. Purposely, I stood closely behind waiting for her to turn.
And just like I planned she turned. She came to face with my chest. She was small compared to myself. That is one more thing I like about her. Having her so close to me now, made me so happy.
As she was standing in front, only few inches of gaps between us, I couldn’t help it but admire her* . When she noticed the gap between us, a gasped left her.
She had a head down. I really wanted to see her face. I hold her chin and lifted her head up. She flinched slightly and had her eyes closed.
Our breathing was in sync.
Her breathe *tickled my face and so did mine. Having to see her face so close, I could see her feature clearer. The wrinkle in between her eyebrows when she is tensed. Her* rose pink lips and her thick eyelashes.
Suddenly I sensed something in her face. Fear. There was clear evidence of fear in her face. Towards me. Immediately I let go of her and walked past her to the washroom.
My girl was afraid of me. I should be the person who chase away all her fears. Not the opposite way. But why is she afraid of me?
That is when I remembered what I said to her on the first day. “I will be your worst nightmare!” How stupid of me. How could I say that to her. What was I thinking?
I quickly opened the door to talk to her. But as I opened the door she quickly start walking. I tried to talk to her but soon we reached the living room.
Just then My dad and Mr knight came down. My father stated that its time we go back. Before we left, I looked at Amelia with determination of making her mine.
She will be mine and I will make sure of that.
Once I reached my house, I tried to come up with a plan to make her mine. I need to marry Olivia for the company. But I also need Amelia. There has to be a way.
How do I make her mine? I realised I cannot live without her. I have fallen for her. I tried to deny but I can’t anymore. She has to become mine.
Its like I can’t breathe without her. What has she done to me. Why am I feeling this way? I have never felt this way before.
Not for any *girl.
I would do anything for my company. Nothing is more important to me than my company* but now all I can think is about her.
Am I in love with her? But how is that *possible? I am the most ruthless businessman there is. I love the way people fear me. But when* I saw fear in her face, I felt something in me shatter.
All of this thinking start to give me a headache. I poured myself a drink. After taking some sips, I realised something. Something that my father said.
“When you were born it was already decided that you marry one of his daughter.” this is what he said.
I had to marry one of his daughter. Not Olivia. This means I can marry Amelia and not Olivia.
That’s a *brilliant idea. I was so happy. I was actually smiling. And I never smile. Ever. After Amelia came* into my life there has been so may emotions that I am feeling that I have never felt before.
This is going to be the first thing I do tomorrow. I am going to tell about this to my dad.
The next morning I called in my father telling him I need to discuss something important and he had asked me to meet him in his office.
I drove down to his office and went up to his room. When I entered, I saw him signing some of the files. As soon as I came he kept them away.
“Come on in son. What is it that you wanted to talk about?” he enquired.
“I am not marrying Olivia-” and before I can continue he spoke. “Son, I have told you that this decision is made. You have to marry Mr knight daughter for the company to become No.1” he said with a sigh.
“I have yet to finish my sentence. I said I didn’t want to marry Olivia. I would like to Amelia instead.” I said with a finality in my voice.
“What? How is that possible?” he asked with confusion. “Why not? You said I had to marry one of his daughter. It doesn’t have to be Olivia.” I said with a smirk.
“But she is a young girl. And still in high school!” he exclaimed. I just rolled my eyes. ” I know that. She still can study after the wedding.” I said back.
“I don’t know son.” he said with a sigh. “Look father, is either I marry Amelia or the wedding is cancelled.” I said with no room for argument.
“Fine. I will ask Tristen about it and try to convince him.” he said. I mentally smiled. I nodded and turn to leave.
“Son, why do you insist on marrying Amelia?” my father asked. I had no idea on how to answer that. What do I tell him?
“Tell me son. Why Amelia?” he persisted. I am very sure he is trying to get the truth out of me which I am not gonna give him.
“That’s *none of your business.” I said sharply. He just laughed. “Oh come on son. Of course its my business. Now tell me. Why do you persist on marrying* Amelia?” he kept on going.
“Its nothing.” I *said sighing. He laughed again. “Liar. You thought I never notice the way you were looking at Mia? Come on. I was once a Romeo too. That is the exact way* I saw your mum when I was in love with her.”
“What! I am not in love with anyone. I am the most ruthless businessman. I don’t do love!!” I exclaimed. He just shake his head and laughed.
“Son. You can be the most ruthless businessman. But that doesn’t mean you cannot fall in love. Don’t take too much time to realise it. Its ok to fall in love.” he said finish. I dwelled on what he say. What he said is true.
I have made my heart a stone for so long. Now that Amelia came into my life, she has started to melt my heart without her realising. I am just worried on whether she deserve a cruel person like me. I just hope I made the right decision.
“Just speak to Mr knight about it.” I said as I sighed and start to walk away.. “You know I am right.” my father shouted and laughed. I just shook my head.
My father told me we will be going over to the Knight’s house to speak to them about it. I just hope Amelia agrees to it.
After I go back to my office, I can’t help it but think about what’s going to happen.
Either way, I will get what I want.
DOPERCH.COM: Arranged to him
( You are mine )
Later that afternoon my father and I reached the Knight’s house. When we went inside I realised that Amelia wasn’t at home. After sometime, the three of them came into the living room.
“Where is Mia?” my father asked knowing my concern. “Mia has went to school. she should be returning home soon.” Mr Knight said.
“Is there anything important that you guys want to talk about?” Mrs Knight asked. My father looked at me for a brief second before hesitantly talking.
“Actually there is. Please don’t get worked up for what I am gonna tell.” My father told them. “What is it about. Is something wrong?” Mr Knight asked tensed.
“No. Nothing is wrong. We just wanted to talk something about the wedding. There has been a change in the wedding” my father said.
“What is it? Is it the wedding decoration or destination?” they asked concerned.
“No. Not that. The thing is My son here wants to marry Mia instead of Olivia” my father said cautiously. For a minute the entire room was pitch silence.
Suddenly, “WHAT!” Olivia screamed. “Calm down Oli” Mr knight trying to cool her down. “Look Trisren I am really sorry for this.
But my son wants to marry Mia. According to the contract all those years ago, it was said that Damien would have to marry one of your daughter. Not specifically Olivia.” My father tried to reason.
“But Mia is a young girl. She is still in high school. She can’t possibly get married.” Mr Knight said worriedly.
Why is everyone saying the same thing? What is wrong with marrying at 18 years old. Is not like I said she cannot study after she is married. Before my father could speak up, I spoke.
“Mr and Mrs Knight, I am ok with her studying after she is married. I promise she can pursue her ambitions even after she is married.” I assured them.
“But why don’t you want to marry Me?” Olivia but in. “Because I don’t like you.” I didn’t mean to be rude but I was just stating the truth.
“Come on Tristen. You know Damien. He will take good care of Mia. I promise.” My father promised. After some time of thinking, “Fine.
Damien and Mia can get married.” Mr Knight said. “Yes. As long as he take good care of our daughter that’s enough.” Mrs Knight said.
“What about Mia? Will she agree to it?” My father asked. “We will try to talk to her. Eventually she will say yes.” Mr knight said.
Just then I heard the door opening. Mrs Knight rushed to the door. I am pretty sure its Amelia.
I heard Mrs Knight talk. “Mia you are back.”
There she was standing like an angel. I saw confusion in her eyes. At one point she made eye contact with me which she break soon.
“Dad what is going on?” she asked with her sweet voice. “Come here sweetheart.” Mr Knight called to her. With confusion she did as she was told.
“Look, I want you to be calm when I tell you this.” Mr Knight sighed. “O-Ok” My Amelia stuttered.
“You remember how Damien is supposed to marry Oliva?” He dragged. “Yeah” she said in a soft voice. “Well there has been a slight change.” He said.
As he said this Amelia turn to look at me. Without realising I smiled automatically. Damn what is she doing to me. I never smile. Ever.
She turn back to her father. “Damien does not want to marry Olivia.” he said.
“He wants to marry you” he said finish. As he said this, I saw Amelia body freeze. Her face paled. When I saw this, I don’t know how or why but I felt as if something poke my heart.
After a long pause, she suddenly *stood up. “WHAT?” she screamed.
“Listen sweetheart. I know it is difficult to understand* . But years ago, Albert and I made an agreement that one of my daughter will marry his son. Hence Damien here choose to marry you.” he explained.
When I look at My girl, she look lost. It disturbs me knowing *that she is not interested in me. All the girl, fall at my feet just for me to glance at them. But she would not even take* a look at me. That is one of the thing attracts me to her.
“What about what I choose? Don’t I get to make a decision? I have yet to even turn 18.” she said back. Its like she is gonna fall apart any time soon.
“We have made the necessary *arrangements for that. I am sorry to say that you don’t have much of a choice.” Mr knight said as he hung his head. Without saying* anything she went off. Just like that.
All of sat there without saying anything. “Don’t worry she will come around.” Mr Knight assured us. “Just don’t disappoint us son.” Mrs Knight spoke. “I won’t. I promise.” I said with confidence.
Soon my father and I left. As I reached my house, I did my night routine. I went to bed straight. As I lay down I begin to process everything. I am going to marry my babygirl.
Soon she will be mine. I am gonna cherish her like the princess she is. Damn. I am really whipped. If anyone were to hear this, none will believe that the ruthless businessman is falling head over heels for a girl.
But now I don’t care. As long as I have her with me, I am capable of fighting the world. I would do anything for my girl.
I want the wedding to take ASAP. I can’t wait to make her mine. I called in to my father to say the wedding will take place in 3 days time. My father was shocked and started to question me.
But I gave him some stupid reasons and waved it off. My father sometimes is too much. In three days she will be mine.
She will become Mrs Mariano. Just the thought is making me go nuts.
Soon you will be all mine babygirl. Soon.
Mr Knight called me later telling me *that he is fine with the wedding taking place in 3 days time. However Amelia has a condition which is to study in the same high school. Which I agreed.
If she wanted I could get her into the best high school in the city or wherever she wanted to study. But if she really wanted to study in same school why not. I would give her anything she ask for.
I had asked Mr Knight where was Amelia and he had said that they had went to the mall for the wedding dress.
I quickly got the idea of going to the mall and pay a visit to see Amelia. I quickly got my keys and drove to the mall. There weren’t many wedding dress shops. So I went to the few, and finally spot them.
I saw Amelia looking at a dress. I can’t exactly see the dress but I can see that she liked the dress. She was gazing at the dress. Now I can’t wait to see her in the dress.
Soon Mrs knight was talking about the dress and I start to walk towards them. I saw that my girl was starting to zone off.
As I walked into the shop, I called out to Mrs knight. “Mrs Knight.” As Amelia heard my voice she was frozen in the spot.
She did not turn back. She stood rooted to the floor. I really wanted her to turn and look at me.
“Damien. How wonderful for us to see you here. What brings you here?” her mum asked. I walked closer to them. I noticed Amelia stand behind her mum and Olivia.
Disregarding it I stood in front of her mum and Olivia. “I went searching for Amelia and her dad told me you guys were here.” I said hoping she will be happy that I came in search for her.
However it was her mum who was happy. Not her. This made me upset but I didn’t show. “May I know why you were searching for her?” she asked. I quickly came up with a lie.
“The wedding rings.” but honestly I came just to look at her. “I see.” was her mum reply but she had this sly look as if she knew the real reason.
“Mia why don’t you go with Damien to select the wedding rings” Mrs Knight said. Yes. I can finally be alone with her. Maybe I’ll will tell her everything.
“B-But the d-dress?” she asked timidly to her mum. How am I going make her to be not be afraid of me? Oh lord.
“We can take care of it.” Her mum said. Quickly she said “Can Olivia come with me please.” Hearing her pleads her mum said ok. There goes spending time with my babygirl alone out the window.
A frown made its way into my face as what I thought did not happen. As Amelia looked at me I wiped the frown away as I did not want her suspecting anything. “Follow me.” is all I said before we start walking.
We were walking to my car when, “So Damien, how are you?” Olivia asked. I turn for brief second to acknowledge before replying “I have been good, Olivia.” I said with a disinterest. She took the hint and kept quiet.
As we reach the car, I had an idea. I opened the back door, after Olivia went in, I shut the door immediately, before Amelia could seat. I opened the passenger seat and looked at Amelia hinting to take a seat. I knew she was about to deny. Hence I gave her the stern look.
This made her seat in the passenger seat. A crooked smile made its way before I hide it. I went to the driver’s seat and started the car as I fasten my belt. That’s when I realised that Amelia didn’t put on her seat belt.
I lean in to put her seat belt for her. As I approached, she shrink back and let whimper out as she closed her eyes.
I got confused and continue to put her seat belt. As she opened her eyes and saw me putting her seat belt, she just nodded her head.
With confusion I started driving. Is she that scared of me? Damn it. What have I done. Do I really had to threatened and scare her the day we met. If only I didn’t say those words. But to be honest, I was scared of the way she was making me feel.
And at that point time, I wanted to suppress the way she made me feel, hence I told those which definitely I did not mean. How am I going to rectify this? Oh lord what have I gotten myself into.
Just then I heard a phone go off. I turned to see whose it was and realised it was my babygirl’s phone. I saw her texting someone. After sometime she start to giggle and laugh which upset me. I was the only person who is allowed to make her giggle and laugh.
She was continuing to laugh and giggle which was making me really jealous. Woah did I just become jealous? Who am I kidding. Of course I am. Someone else is making my babygirl laugh. So of course I am going to get jealous.
I stopped the car suddenly. I was pissed. “Damien, is everything alright?” Olivia asked. “Yeah” was all I said. I sensed Amelia shrinking in her seat and realised I was scaring.
My aim is to make her not be scared of me. Not scare her more. I took deep breathe and once I calmed down I started driving again.
After some time we reached the ring shop. It was Tiffany & Co. We all got down. I saw Amelia looking at the place with fascination. I went and stood behind her. She continued to stare at the building.
I cleared my throat to gain her attention and she turn around only to come to face with my chest. She looks so tiny and adorable. As she looked up at me, I looked down at her. She quickly went to her sister.
As they start to walk, I stopped then. “Olivia, Amelia and me would go and take a look at the rings You can take a look around the other shops.
” I said hoping she will get my hint. I can feel Amelia getting tense. But I want to choose the rings with her only. I didn’t want Olivia around.
“O-Ok sure.” Olivia said to my relieve. As soon she left I went to stand beside My girl only for her to move away. I sighed thinking this going to take some time. I started walking hoping for her to follow me.
As we entered the place become silent.
Everyone knew me and what I am capable of. That is why everyone is afraid of me. Everyone stood still which was starting to piss me off. Noticing this one of the lady came to attend us.
“Mr Mariano, how can we assist you?” she asked with fear. As I looked around people were back to their business.
“I would like 2 wedding rings and a engagement ring.” is all I said. She started to guide us to a private room. I looked at Amelia to see she was fascinated by the room decoration. I took a seat and she just stood there.
“Seat.” I sighed. Which she quickly obeyed. “Show us your latest design.” I asked the lady and she quickly took the designs out. I started looking for the perfect design. I wanted the perfect one for my babygirl.
I was searching for the engagement ring. Just then I saw the perfect one. It would look amazing in her fingers. I asked Amelia how was the ring and if she like it. But I got no response. I looked at her only to realise she was zoned out.
“Amelia.” I called again which she respond to. I showed her the engagement ring. “This is the engagement ring for you.” I said she nodded her head. She didn’t even say whether she likes it or not. I sighed and got the ring,
We moved on to the wedding rings. I wanted something special and unique. But I wanted something of Amelia style. She enjoys simple things. So I wanted something that was special, unique and simple.
Just then I saw the perfect one. It stated ‘My King’ and ‘My Queen.’ It was rose gold. It was special, unique and simple. I turn to look at Amelia and she nodded her head. I gave the lady the wedding ring and confirmed it.
The lady took our measurement. Soon she was done. As we exited the store she quickly start looking for her sister and didn’t let me have a conversation with her. We found Olivia and left. We took our car and left.
We reached her house after some time. Olivia left the car first as Amelia was having trouble with the seat belt. I helped her with it and before she could go, I hold her wrist stopping her. She gasped and turn to look at me.
I was gazing at her unable to handle her beauty. This is the second time we have been alone without anyone to disturb and she is running away. First time being the café. I leaned in and hold her chin.
“You are mine.” I whispered into her ear before letting her go. After recovering from her shock, she scurried away. I chuckled after seeing her adorable face. Did I just chuckled. Oh lord what is going on with me.
I drove back home with my babygirl in mind. She has been the only thing in my mind. I just can’t stop thinking of her. Before I went to sleep, there was only one person in my mind and that is,
Its 2pm now in the afternoon and I have not met Amelia or heard her voice and its frustrating me.
She has become my addiction. And I can’t stop thinking about her. If I go and stand in their door stop without a reason, it’d be too awkward.
Just then my secretary brought in a package. It was from Tiffany & Co. When I opened it, there was the engagement ring and wedding rings.
I imagined the rings were to be in *Amelia’s hand. Just then I got an amazing idea. I should bring Amelia to dinner and propose to her and slip in the* engagement ring. Yes. Now I can see her and also bring her out and have dinner.
I quickly made reservations in a Italian restaurant. This was it. I am going to tell her everything during the dinner.
How much I love her. Why I chose her instead of her sister. That’s it. I came up with the plan. I was anticipatingly waiting for the evening.
I quickly went back home, refreshed and wear clothes to impress. The things I do for this girl. I smiled to myself. It was around 8 when I reach their door step. I ringed the door bell. I thought just maybe, maybe, Amelia would open the door.
But end up her mum opening.
She gave me a pleasing smile and in a cheerful voice and invited me in. As I went in my eyes searched for one cute girl who spread joy around her. But failed.
Just then Mr Knight came in. “Hi Mr Knight and Mrs Knight” I greeted them. “Oh please call Tristen and Sophia. What made you come here?” Tristen asked me.
“I came to bring Amelia to dinner. If that’s ok with y’all” I asked politely. I have to *remain in their nice book. Both of them looked at each other before, ” Of course dear. Take a seat first. I will bring Amelia* down.” Sophia said.
Both Tristen and me took a seat and started talking about the wedding tomorrow. After quite some time Sophia came down. “Trist, Mia is not at home. I think she went out.” Sophia said with nervous.
“Did you try calling her?” Christopher asked. “Yes. But her phone is at home.” She replied. “She must not have gone far if she didn’t bring her phone along.” He said.
“I’m sorry son. We didn’t know she went out. ” Tristen apologised. “Its no problem. I’ll shall wait for her return.” I answered. There is no way I am going off without seeing her. Both of them agreed.
We talked for some time and then I asked if I could see her room. Which they hesitated at first but I told them I want to decorate our room according to her taste and they agreed.
I went to take *a look at her room. Her room looked so simple. Her bed had the baby cot net hanging in her bed. It didn’t look girly or tomboyish* which was obvious. It was in white colour.
I went to look at her photos. There were photos with her family and class photos. I also noticed there were few photos with a boy. She looked all smiley with him. Which again rise jealous. Is he her boyfriend?
But the investigator told me she was single. He must be her friend. But still it didn’t settle the bubble in my stomach. She looked happy with him. I want that. I want her to be happy with me. Be all smiley. Demand me whatever she wants.
Allow me to spoil her. Treat her like a princess. And have our own family. Grow old with her. I want to say all this to her. But when I see her, none of those words come out.
Which is frustrating. I took one of her picture where she was holding onto a candle and she was in the dark. Only her face can be seen in the light. It was mesmerising.
After looking around some more, I exited her room. I went down and waited for her. Her parents had went somewhere inside the house.
After some time I heard the door being open and shut. Then she entered the living room. And the sight of almost made me burst out laughing. But I refrained. She was eating ice cream.
The spoon she was holding was mid way in her mouth and her eyes were wide as if they were gonna pop out soon.
She had ice cream in the tip of her nose and in her lip line. She looked absolutely adorable and innocent. My innocent baby. I stood up slowly which made her drop her spoon.
That’s when Tristen and Sophia came. “Oh dear where were you? We were looking for you. We tried to call But you didn’t answer.” Sophia said in a panic tone.
She kept silent. “Damien here wanted to bring you for dinner. We thought you were home. When did you go out?” she kept asking.
Finally coming out from her trance, ” I-I w-went to g-get ice-c-cream” she stuttered. Why does she stutter when she sees me?
“Damien I am sorry for this.” Sophia apologised “Its ok Sophia.” I said back. I walked closer to them and Amelia shrink back but didn’t move.
I went near her and took her left hand. I heard a slight gasp from her. Which mean my touch do have a effect on her.
That’s interesting. I slipped the engagement ring in her delicate finger. I went a step further and kissed her hand. I wanted to kiss her so badly. But for now this would do.
“Oh how *lovely.” Sophia gushed and she quickly retreated her hands. I told them how I wanted to propose in front of the media and* announce the wedding.
I wanted the *whole world to know that I am getting married to this angel. Tell everyone who called me heartless and monster that I am indeed getting married to an* angel. This angel standing in front of me.
But guess I can’t do that now. But in *due time. Tomorrow is when everything will fall in place. I told my leave when Sophia asked Amelia to send me off. Thank you Sophia I said mentally.*
As we reached *the door step, She was about to close the door when I stopped her. I leaned down to her, “Goodnight babygirl. Tomorrow you will be mine.” Is what I said as I return home with a flushed* cheeks girl standing in her door stop.
I lay in bed think about tomorrow. I am unable to sleep when I think about tomorrow. The more I think about it, the more crazy I was getting. Tomorrow I will be lying in this very bed cuddled with my babygirl.
I wont be alone in this big ass house. I don’t have to sleep alone anymore. I can have someone to look forward too when I return home. With all this thought I went to sleep.
The next morning I made sure everything single thing was perfect. I wanted this day to be perfect for both me and my babygirl.
The anticipation was over whelming. As time tick, I was getting more excited. Just few more hours she will be all mine.
The hours passed by, and here I was standing in my white and rose gold wedding suit. It fit me perfectly. I put on everything that was needed. My father came in.
“Damien. You are finally getting married.” he said with a soft voice. I just nodded my head. “You know, whenever someone told me you were heartless and emotionless, it hurt me.
People used to say that no one will marry you for the reputation you earn. But I knew that one day a special girl will melt that stone heart of yours.”
I was about to disagree when he spoke again. “And don’t deny about your feelings for that girl. I know you are in love with her.
I have seen in it your eyes. If your mum were to be here, she would be so happy.” When he start to talk my mother about I stiffed. It was a very difficult topic for me.
“Alright enough with this. Come on son you are wanted for your wedding.” he said before he chuckled and left. He was right about one thing. If my mum was here she would be so happy for having an angel as a daughter.
I gathered myself up and went to the wedding location.
I was standing in front of the registrar waiting for my babygirl to enter from that door.
The only thing that is separating my babygirl and me. Seconds felt like hours and minutes felt like days. After what felt like years, the music start to play. Which means she will walking out anytime now.
And the door opened. There she *walked out like an angel that she is. She was breathe taking. Amazing. Gorgeous. Magnificent. Beautiful. Lovely. Just perfect. And I cant believe this angel here is going* to be mine. All mine.
Here she *was standing in front of me. “Take care of my daughter, son.” Tristen said as he handed me his daughter. “I will, sir.” I assured as I took her hands* .
As I touched her delicate hands, I heard her gasp. Every time we touch there is this spark. I brought her up. She had her head down all this while. Once she was up, she retreated her hand.
Soon the speech start. The priest asked me for my consent. This was it. With full confidence “I do.” I said. Next the priest went on to Amelia. At first she did not respond.
The priest asked again. She was quiet for some time. My heart was exploding. Finally she said ‘I do’. I was beyond happy. So happy I felt like I was flying.
After exchanging the rings, the priest announced us husband and wife. Now comes the part I was waiting. “you may kiss the bride.”
