The door of my room opened with a loud thud, making me jump. I screamed while looking at the door.
" I didn't mean to scare you. " Alisa said, her hand was on her swollen stomach which was jutted out with her pregnancy of seventh months.
I instantly got up from the mattress and paced at her. I held her by arm and made her sit on the couch, " You didn't scare me. I was just lost somewhere in my thoughts. " I told her, sitting on the wooden table.
" Why do you start your day with horrible thoughts? " she said and stared at me.
I knew she wanted to forget all that and me also. But I can't help the nightmares. Her screams echoed in my ears, " You should not wander like this, especially stairs. You should rest, Alisa. " I told her.
" Perhaps, you didn't glance at the clock, Thea. " She said, pulling a pillow behind her back.
I glanced at the clock and jumped on my feet, " Oh My God, I'll get late for the classes again. " I said out loudly.
" Calm down, take your time. I'll attend the kids until you come down and ready to leave. " Alisa said, smiling at me.
" Alisa, are you sure? I mean. I'm worried about you. I don't want you to get yourself hurt. " I told her and bit my lip.
It has been the Seventh month of that horrible night. Next day, I somehow managed to run away from his coop with Alisa. But I always felt when I walked out of the house that someone was watching over me.
" I'm fine Thea, all thanks to you. " She smiled.
" Oh! Come on sister. Well, have you had your breakfast? " I asked, holding her hand and getting back on the wooden table.
" Yes, I did. Now go, Thea, if you don't wanna get late, " She said with a smile, pushing me while holding my both hands at the washroom.
I giggled and walked at the washroom. " You are not coming upstairs next time. " I told her.
" If you'll get up early in the morning every day, then I can hear you. " She chuckled, " I should go. "
" Where is Lucy? " I asked her.
" After preparing our breakfast, I asked her to go to school to make the classrooms clean and arrange things properly. " She said.
" Be careful on stairs, " I nodded.
" Okay, your breakfast...... " I cut her off.
" Don't stress about me, Alisa. I'll be there soon. " I intensely told her. I wanted her to take care of herself instead of worrying over me.
" Okay, make it hurry. Oh! I forgot to tell you one thing. Mr Luca Guerrero and his daughter Sienna Guerrero are visiting today. If we hooked it. Mr Guerrero can donate to our school and that money will help to study those kids who can't afford to study. " She said before leaving my room.
" Okay, I'll be there soon. " I rubbed my fingers over my forehead.
I fully skipped it from my mind. Mr Guerrero is a billionaire. He wants his daughter to spend her life like a normal girl among normal children. After this meeting, he will decide whether his daughter will study here or not. Alisa said it can be important for our school. I believe her as she knows such things better than me. It was her idea to run a school. My Aunt and cousin Calvin appreciated it. Only aunt and Calvin knows where we are.
We are not sisters but we are more than sisters. In these past seven months, we have gone through a lot. Thanks to Aunt Olivia and Calvin. He arranged our fake IDs, certificates. According to our new fake IDs. I'm twenty-one years old while I'm just eighteen. Alisa is twenty-five years old while she is twenty-one. We are sisters and our parents died in a car accident, according to our fake story. We ran a nursery school. The school was only five minutes away from our resident. Our home was a beautiful two-storey house, enough for us.
I draped a towel around my body and hurried at the cupboard. I wanted to look professional today. I plucked pink coat pants and white shirt. I donned it immediately. I combed my straight long hair and applied some makeup. I put on my white pointed heels. I picked my handbag and checked my phone.
" Crap! The battery is low." I whispered.
I glanced at the screen. Alisa's message popped on the screen, she has reached school.
I grabbed the charger and dumped it in my handbag along with the phone. I rushed out of the house. After locking it, I unlocked my car. I got in and strapped myself. Turning the keys, I drove as I started my daily routine. Well! It's not the first time I got late for work. I missed being in college. I turned on the music, enjoying the songs.
I skipped my heartbeat, When I saw a queue of expensive cars outside of our school. I pulled over the car in puzzlement. Different thoughts ran in my mind. I was worried about Alisa. Vigilantly, I directly walked toward our office. I could see men in black suits standing after every ten steps. My hands got cold. I was getting tense about Alisa.
Is Dylan here? Oh, God! Please prove me wrong.
Quickening my pace, I reached outside of the office. My heels were reverberating in the hall. I wasn't sure whether their eyes were on me or not. I couldn't fathom behind their black glasses. I peeped in. Alisa was sitting on the head chair with a small smile. I inhaled in alleviation. There was a tall man in a shiny black suit. I could not see his face. My ear caught the sweet voice of a little girl who was walking on her tiny feet in the office. She stumbled on her feet and was going to fall. I immediately slipped my hands under her arms and scooped her up in my arms. She was light weighted. She was a cute child with big green eyes and was in a pink dress, looking like a cute doll. Her mother must adore her most.
" Wo princess! You were going to fall. " I said with a smile, taking her in my arms.
She giggled, " I'm Enna, who is the princess. " She sweetly asked.
There was a mirror on the wall, " Look there, a cute little girl in a pink dress is looking like a princess. " I told her smilingly.
She laughed, " You're also in a pink dress. " She sweetly told me and rested her tiny hands on my cheeks and smiled.
" Enna, It's not good to touch people like this. " I heard a male sexy voice.
" It's okay. She's just a kid. " I said and looked up. I found myself unable to speak as I looked in his eyes. His lips were curved into a small smile, making him more gorgeous. Warmth spread through my entire body as I found his green eyes on me.
Oh god! Please tell me he's not married.
" She's my sister, Thea. " Alisa smiled.
His eyes were already on me. He extended his hand, " Luca Guerrero. " He softly said, pulling his hand out.
I put Enna on her feet, " Thea Loughty. " I smiled back. I was used to my fake surname now. I felt the tingles in my body when his skin touched mine. My pulses began to flow faster, my heart was already beating rapidly. I was overwhelmed with surprise, my body was responding to his touch.
' He's married. He has a daughter. ' I called in my brain to keep away the thoughts.
His eyes were still on me. I felt as he could hear my inner voice, the race of my pulses and heart. It was hard to look away from him. My head was spinning. He is so handsome, his grip on my hand describes his physical strength. His coat was tailored like, it was made to show the v shape of his body. I don't wanna make the situation any weird, so reluctantly I pulled my hand. For a second, I thought he was frozen on his spot.
He cleared his throat, " Ms Loughty, My daughter will join today, But security guards will always stay around her. " he said.
" That's not an issue Mr Guerrero. Make sure they don't show themselves to Sienna until it's necessary as you want to provide her normal environment like normal kids. " Alisa said.
I squatted down, " Enna, are you ready to meet more princesses and make new friends? " I asked.
" Friends! They'll play with me. " She asked.
" Of course! They will, Sienna. " Alisa replied with a smile.
" Come, Enna. Let me introduce you to your new friends. " I told her.
She hopped in excitement, " Enna, you'll fall. " He said softly
" She'll not fall. Don't worry. " I told him.
His green eyes met mine again. It every time left a new mark on me. He nodded instantly, " Enna! " He scooped her up, " I'm going to the office. But I promise I'll be back soon. Later, we'll talk about what you did the whole day. " He said to her sweetly.
" Okay, daddy. " She told him with a smile.
To my astonish, she spread her arms at me to pick her up. I could not deny such a cutie. I instantly opened my arms. She's just four years old. Alisa told me last night. Mr Guerrero leaned in closer, making my heart raced. He pecked on her cheek, " Be a good girl. " he whispered and stepped back.
I heaved deeply as he stood two feet away. I could still smell his cologne. I quickly glanced at him and then back to Enna, " Let's go. " I whispered.
Thea's POV She was smiling the whole time as she played with the others kids in the playground. It was looking like she had stepped out in this world for the first time. Alisa stood beside me, holding a smile on her lips. She was gazing at them, " You like him. " She asked. " Sienna, yeah! She's a cute kid. " I smiled. " I'm not talking about Sienna. " She tilted her head at me, " I saw you when you were looking at him. I haven't seen you looking at any man like this before, indeed you don't pay attention to opposite sex after whatever happened to us. " She said. I tucked my hair behind my ear and glanced down at the grass, " He's married. " I told her. Indeed, I was feeling hurt that he was married but not to me. " He adopted Sienna. She is the daughter of his late brother and sister in law. That's why I always
Thea's POV Every morning, I saw a glimpse of Mr Guerrero, when he came to drop Enna. I was feeling bad for her. She lost her parents but Luca is an amazing father. He has a busy life but he did not forget to give time to his daughter. My eyes covered with water when Enna's caretaker told me she didn't miss her mother in these past days because of me. I never felt this special. It doesn't look, I know Enna for merely a week. It seems years. I took out the blue file. It was proof of my freedom from unwanted relationships. Indeed Neither it was marriage nor any relationship. I didn't try to ask him why he did this deal with my mother. All I wanted to get rid of was the cage of his beautiful mansion. " Thea! Do you want me to come upstairs? " Alisa's loud voice resonated in the whole house. " Coming Alisa. " I said loudly.&nbs
Thea's POV I frowned as I didn't know where the library was. It was quite impossible for me to find it without wasting hours. " Do you want anything? " He asked, emerging himself in front of me. I winced and found him behind me. He was still wearing his suit, " Yes, Enna is sleeping. I think I should go home now. " I told him. I was feeling really awkward as I was standing in front of me in my nightclothes. He took out his phone and held it for me. I looked at him confusingly, " Hello, Thea. " Familiar female voice came. I quickly grabbed it from his hand and turned off the speaker mode. I brought it up to my ear, " Alisa, Are you alright? Why are you up till now? It's too late. " I told her. " Relax, Thea. I've sent your clothes and personal things. " I furrowed my eyebrows as I didn't get the me
Thea's POV Walking out of his private plane, we got in his car. Enna sat between us. She climbed in his lap and was glancing out of the window. She held my hand and took it in her lap. It compelled me to lean closer to them. My eyes widened, when I felt his hand on my waist, tugging me toward them. I was staring at him with parted lips. He raised his brows. I quickly shifted my gaze out of the window. " We'll see the Eiffel tower. " Enna giggled. " Sure, sweetheart. Tomorrow. " He said. I kept quiet all the time and kept my eyes out. I ignored the flip in my stomach when my arm was brushing his torso. I looked at him through the corner of my eyes. His eyes were on mine. This feeling is strange. When he comes near to me, I want to run away. When he's away I want him around me.
Thea's POV His ' I do ' completely numbed me. We were surrounded by white sand and blue ocean water. Sea was calm as it wanted to witness our wedding. My white dress was moulded on every curve of mine. My veil was hiding my eyes. Beach was decorated with all kinds of white flowers. Everything was at stake. Particularly, who was my family for the last seven months, Alisa. Dylan could kill her and could throttle her happiness. Luca promised me to keep her secure. I was given one option ' Agree with him. ' " As soon as you both shall live. " I heard him and a waft of light breeze brush my skin. This was a huge commitment. How will I keep it when there's no love between us. He had already spoken his decision with the sourness of his tongue. I blinked as the first ray of sun kissed his skin, one side of his face, making his skin glow and beyond handsome. I was holding my breath, "
Luca's POV I hurtled my phone on the mattress. I could not take out her shocked face and painful expressions. I didn't mean to hurt her, but she doesn't know, what is going to walk in? She knows and thinks what pure souls on this earth think about me. I know, I compelled her to be at this wedding. But I wasn't regretting it. I can't let anything happen to Sienna. After losing my whole family in a barbaric slaughter, her smile is my priority. I haven't seen her glad before, Sienna loves her. She made her place in her heart in less than a week. I've changed her preschool in the past two weeks more than fifteen times. I like Thea from her first look when she caught stumbling Sienna. She plucked my heart when she turned her back to have a bullet for my daughter. It determined me to take this decision. Her reality was already clear to me when I thought to have the admission of Sienna in her school. This marriage is just for Sienna. I haven't any i
Thea's POV I tucked my hair over the mark. He's a beast. I haven't seen anyone doing this to his wife. He marked my body. My dress wasn't helping to hide it. Why was he bothering about the ring? I can't live my life with his rules. Someone knocked on the door. I sauntered and opened it. He was standing, hands in his pocket. I rolled my eyes and turned. But he grabbed my wrist, " What do you want? " I tried to push him away. Who knows, he can bite me again. " You, " he huskily said. Shockingly, my eyes gazed at him, " Excuse me. " I wrinkled my lips. I still remember his words last night. He tucked my hair back my shoulder, revealing my mark, " It's better now. " he whispered. What was he trying to prove? " Don't forget you have a daughter. Who'll see it
Thea's POV I brushed my hand over her forehead and kissed her head. She's a cute doll and deserves all the happiness in the world. With Luca at her side, her smile will never leave her lips. I wasn't feeling sleepy. Michelle was staying with her until I returned back home. I bathed. After it, I walked out toward the garden. " Ma'am, you can't go outside. " Adrik said, stopping me in my way. " I'm not going outside. I just need a walk. " I told him. " Sorry, ma'am. It's an order. Boss is attending an important meeting in the backyard garden. " He said. " What's happening, Adrik? " Magro said. " He's not allowing me to go out for a walk. " I said to him. " I apologize ma'am. Boss is discussing an important meetin
