I won't say it again Lara. He said piercing his eyes with hers.The atmosphere changed, the silence stretched longer than usual.
Princess Lara stood, her hands akimbo to know what he was going to do.She wouldn't come here and get intimidated.
He mumbled some words and looked up.You're still clothed Lara.
Yes, and I don't get why I should strip. Lara almost yelled but keep calm.Richard. He called.A guard came in, he looked rough but gentle too. Take the Princess to my garden and make sure she trims my flowers there very well.
What??What a game you're playing Nicklaus. She said and he looked up.You talk a lot Lara. He whispered and sighed...
She walked out of his room, strolling behind Richard the guard.She wasn't going there to trim flowers but to see the garden he talked about.
Few minutes later, the were there.Wow, escaped her lips. She was surprised. He has a place this beautiful. She muttered.
Hey, come here. She said to a guard.You know how to trim flowers. Right? She said in a flat tone. Yes, your Highness. The guard said.
Good, trim this garden very well. I'll be back by 2:00pm. She said and walked away.She doesn't lift a thing in her Kingdom but he asked her to trim flowers.
💮💮💮💮💮King Nicklaus was exhausted and sleepy. But he decided to take a night walk.He doesn't sleep at night, he doesn't want to go back to that night.
That night he witnessed his parents death.He closed his eyes and let the breeze do their thing.
The evening was cool and peaceful.King Nicklaus wanted to sleep as much as everyone but he couldn't. That night keep taunting him.
He was strolling back to his room to do more scroll reading and writing, then he heard a voice.The coolest voice ever, so angelic.
He stopped walking and turned around, he had to see this person. His head going up and down looking for the person singing.
He stood dead at his track, she can't be the one singing.A crazy person like Lara can't sing this.
Such Angelic voice, he stood dumbfounded staring at her sing.
*****Princess Lara sang with every bit of her, she loves singing , seated on the green lawn she sang her heart out, pouring out her emotions in the dark silence- filled night.
The palace was beautiful unlike hers in Tules. She stood up waking to her room. She had sang enough.
She walked to a point, her blue eyes met a deep sea - green.She gulped, he had heard her sing.
That was nice. King Nicklaus said his face masked with that unreadable expression.Uhmm.. Thank you. Princess Lara found herself saying.
No one knows she sang, she hated the feeling of being talked about.She was already walking past him, but he got her arm.
Follow me to my Chambers. He groaned staring at her.
She nodded and silently followed him.He was surprised but did not show it. She had followed him without talking.
*****They got to the Chamber, that was when it dawn to Lara that they had been holding hands.She quickly withdrew her hands.
Why am I here Nicklaus? Lara asked staring at him, searching for answers.
I want you to sing me to sleep. I haven't gotten a good sleep for years. He said after a brief silence.
Silence came and filled the air. She wanted to decline but then ' years ', she definitely heard ' years '.
She sighed and sang, pouring out her emotions. Not withhelding one.She looked up and saw a sleepy Nicklaus..
Maybe, this was what he needed, Peace....
The chirping of birds was heard by King Nicklaus as he opened his eyes.He looked around the room, looking for nothing in particular.
Then he remembered... She was here and she made him sleep in ease. He shook his head in disbelief.
He woke up and took his bath. And continued his daily activity.Still reminiscing on last night events. He recalled that voice. It was angelic and pure.
Call me Princess Lara. He said.Yes, your majesty. Richard said and bowed.He went in search of the Princess.
Princess Lara walked around the palace, admiring everything she saw.The palace was huge and beautiful too...
She decided to visit the garden.. the most beautiful place ever.She had left her room without her guards and maid. She wanted to take a better view.
She walked into the garden admiring and touching each flower.She loved flower, it was a part of her.
She sat on the grass, running her hands on the flowers.. she loves it here.
What are you doing here? A cold voice came out.Uhh... It's definitely him. She muttered.
Ohh, Nicklaus what's the Problem? She said and looked away.
What are you doing here? His voice came again.What does it look like am doing. She snapped at him and continued moving.
If he had known, that she detest yellers.Get out. He grinned with rage.She saw it, rage, a killer's rage.
Okay, if you say so. She said heading to the passage.Don't ever step your feet here again or else... He went dumb, he doesn't wanna say it.
For the first time, she saw the rage filled in his eyes.What could have happen?
Does he hate her that much or is it her hate for him that's causing this. She wondered.
****Princess Lara went to her room. She needed answers.Like, why would the garden be that sacred?
Why did he change that much? Cause from the stories she heard he was a playful and cheerful person.
Just one night changed everything.She was lost in thoughts when Kali came in, her personal maid.
My Princess, how are you holding up. Kali said sitting on the bed.Am good Kali, can you tell me more about the King? Lara said.
Uhmm, actually it's not my place to say anything Princess. Am truly sorry. Kali said bowing down.
She was scared , Lara saw it. They fear in her to say a thing about the King.It's okay, maybe next time.
A knock came in and guard yelled from outside.
Your Highness, the King demands your presence. He said and left.He yelled at her and now he wants to talk.
She's going to deal with him today.Princess Lara walked into the Kitchen with a glass of wine, the maids bowed as she walked in.
Your Highness, do you need something? A maid asked staring at the glass of wine .
Yes, give me Chilli Pepper. She said and looked around.Huh, chilli pepper. The maid repeated.
Yes, and do it faster please...
Lara was given a grinded pepper, she smirked and poured a little quantity into the wine.He shouldn't dare her, she's crazy.
She shook the wine and headed for his room.
He deserves a wine .

She said and sat down next to him, dropping the glass of wine on the table.He didn't say a thing, he was used to it, being addressed as Nicklaus.They Royal Court will be meeting this evening, and they would love to meet their Queen. He groaned and looked up to see a smiling Lara.What is it? He asked and furrowed his brows.Aren't you tired, you've been writing and reading for hours now. She stated.Are you worried about me? He asked staring hard at her. Nope. She replied.Drink this and get strength. She said and offered the drink.He groaned and took the wine.Did you poison this? He asked glaring hard at her. Who knows. She replied with a shrug
Written by Evelyn Mba©®©®Sing for me, Lara. He growled.Huh? She blinked her eyes.Sing for me. He said again and closed his eyes. She shrug and started the song.She doesn't know what but being with him sometimes often breaks that crazy part in her.She wasn't just singing, she was putting someone to sleep.Making sure nightmares don't come.She opened her eyes and found him, already asleep.She covered him the duvet and moved to the couch.*****It was midnight, Princess Lara tucked herself into her arms and covered the blanket.Minutes later, she heard someone crying real hard.Who could that be? She wondered still on the couch. Then she heard it again, this time the voice was known. King Nicklaus.She sprang up her feet, ran to the bed and held his hands. No, please. Mom, Dad... Please stop.
Written by Evelyn Mba©®©®He claimed her lips...Her eyes widened, she had never been kissed.But here she is been kissed by a man whose touch makes funny things to her inside.He pulled her closer and slowly he was ontop, kissing the life out of her.The kiss was fire, it was hot.She tried to breath but air wouldn't come.Slowly, she gave up and closed her eyes.Letting the kids go far, he stopped and stared at her. Never as he wanted someone like he wants her..What are you doing to me? He groaned and slammed his lips on hers again.Dancing and dropping wet kisses on her body.She didn't make a sound. It was weird for her because she wanted more, more of him.Moans escaped her lips as he nipped on her lower lip.She clamped her mouth shut, this feeling is not something she wants.But he wasn't done with her, his hands went down and pinched her a**. She g
Wriitten Evelyn Mba ©®©® PAINS MADE HIM CRUEL... Lara stretched out her hands happily, feeling the cool Breeze. She has never been this happy. She smiled and walked around the village with Kali, her Personal maid. Seems you're good mood today, your Highness. She said and smile. Yes, Kali. Am very happy. Princess Lara said.May I know why? She pressed further. Am just happy today Kali, there must not be a reason . She replied with a shrug. You don't want to tell me. Huh! She pouted. You don't need to know, Kali. Lara chuckled. Okay, should I guess. Am good at guessing your Highness. Kali said. Okay, go on. Lara said.There is a bench over there, let's sit down your Highness. Kali said and the both went to sit. So, am guessing you're happy because, the King slept in your Chamber yesterday. Kali said and Lara's cheek reddened. Ohh, Kali what's your P

She said.You unmasked. He said.No, I didn't. I remember clearly, I unmasked when I got to the water flow. She said again.Yes, I know. I followed you there. He said and paused.You... Followed me there? Why? She asked perturbed. Because you.... FLASHBACKThe drums were heard, flutes played and the Kings of each clan walked in.King Nicklaus hated parties, festivals, anything that included music. He hated it after that night.But he had no choice, it was a tradition that all King's must be present. He walked in and sat on his seat. The festival continued with more music and dancing.He got up and walked outside, he hated the
Written by Evelyn Mba©®©®WHAT HIS HEART YEARNED FORHe shook his head and groaned. She doesn't know what she's saying.Nicklaus, say something. Lara pressed further.Say what?Anything. She said pouting and he chuckled.He chuckled.. He just chuckled. She almost yelled.You just chuckled? She said more like a statement. So what, chuckling is a crime? He asked.No, never thought cold guy could chuckle. She said giggling. Cold guy, Huh?? He said.Yeah, you're too cold. Warm up already. She said pouting again.Okay, I'll try. He said.You.... You'll try. She yelled stuttering.So? He asked.Nothing, am going to the village tommorow. Are you coming? She asked.No, I'll be busy. He said shaking his head.You'll be busy, please Nicklaus.

Written by Evelyn Mba ©®©® The weather remained bright, giving colors to the beautiful flowers that stood on the way. Making Lara smiled the more. What a day!!She walked and stopped, glancing at the man by her side. His face masked with an unreadable expression, his two hands curled backward. He just walked along not making a sound. Kali, be careful there. Lara yelled as Kali ran and grabbed her hand. Princess, if you keep walking this way. Am afraid we won't make it to the waterfall. Kali said and dragged Lara's hand. Kali had forgotten, they weren't alone. The King was with them. Kali, look back. Lara whispered to her maid. Oh my.. Kali gasped in dear, she forgot about the King. He was with them, all this time.He will surely punish her. Slowly, she let go of Lara's hand, watching as the King got closer to them. Why did we stop?Aren't we headed to the wa

You called for me, Your Majesty. Marcel said and bowed. Marcel, how's the preparation? He asked. What preparation, Sire? Marcel asked. For war with the Kingdom of Athopa? He asked again. It's... It's, uhm Your Majesty. They people are scared, they women are afraid to let their husband go to this war. It's a death sentence, they said. Hmph, what should we do? King Leon asked.But Your Majesty.
