** Was it actually nightmare?**
“ Your highness, Majesty, do you really think it’s her ?” Aries asked the CEO of the Emerald.
He didn’t turn his face but he kept on tapping his finger on the table and said,” I am not sure Aries but she makes me feel as she is the one for the ritual. That day is soon, going to finish and this girl can give us our freedom. She can give us the way to eternity and the afterlife. If she is really the one we were looking for,” he replied.
“ Yes, your Majesty but she is really someone who doesn’t know anything. Should we really let her know about this? She is really naïve, your highness,” Aries said.
He raised his index finger and then, turned to him. “ Since when did you start to be kind to her? Remember Aries, she is our sacrificial scapegoat nothing more than that. The kinder you would be with her, the more our ritual will be delayed. Inform everyone that we have found our sacrifice and inform me after talking to the priest, which of the day is auspicious for the sacrificial,” he ordered and signaled him to leave his office.
This man was not a normal man. He could never be. He was the 2500 years old half-dead soul who had an observer way a lot in this world waiting for his eternal afterlife. The 2500 years of lonesome life had turned him into one of the fiercest, and arrogant creature of the world.
He had learned one thing, to be cruel and to be harsh to the world, not to have any relationship with the world. He never ate with the human. He ate alone and his food contained lots of elixirs prepared by his priests.
He had two forms of body. He was one on the day and the other at the night. To be able to stay as the perfect human being he had to take lots of elixirs. When those elixirs were missed he had pains and a very severe one, the more than that of being hit with hundreds of arrows and swords.
That day, he had missed his elixir and he wasn’t able to control himself. That day, he was at the meeting and he had to walk away from the meeting because his body was having the reactions to it.
That day he had turned in the white mice and ended up in the snowy, place, and bumped into a girl. The girl was stupid she was talking to mice. And, while meeting her, he had slowly started to gain back his body without elixir.
It made me shocked by the guts. Ilooked at her from the corner because I cannot show my changing body to the world. If they see me changing my body then, I would be sent to the research lab as a new specimen to be studied by scientists who were hungry for new inventions and discoveries.
I ordered Aries to take care of her but Aries seemed to have so much fun with the girl. I don’t know why but I wasn’t liking it. I had to check her before I needed to confirm her existence first.
I ordered Aries to find everything about her. I got to know that she was an orphan and she was constantly bullied. So, it was easy for me to get what I wanted when I knew about her.
I just had to change to make her get out of the foster home. And, yes those girls helped me to get her out of the foster home.
“ Your highness, if she isn’t the one, she may die too. You know you cannot touch any of the girls if she has not any connections with your past and if she isn’t your sacrificial offering,” Aries had told me.
“ You’re there Aries. I don’t wanna kill her. If she isn’t the one that I am looking for then you can obviously touch her. You aren’t obligated fully on the curse we share. So, if she isn’t the one then, you have to save her and bring her back to what she is. But, if she is the one then, I have to change her life because she should be the one who should happily accept the sacrifice and should sacrifice herself,” I said with a hopeful voice and prayed that she should be the one though I knew that God had stopped to hear my prayers a long time ago.
When she had run out from there, I had shuffled her mind and made her see what I wanted to show to her and to my surprise she was really attracted by the aura of the flowers which were actually the aura of mine. She was being attracted to me but I don’t realize where the petals of cherry blossoms were falling and I saw that her hands and arms were cut but she was recovering like so quick and without any trace of cut like a new skin.
I couldn’t understand that and it was decided that I Aries would be the one to push her off the cliff but he didn’t even touch her but she was pushed to off the cliff. I really couldn’t understand what exactly was going on but when she got off the cliff, my senses which were like dead for so long time started to show the reflex actions in my body. I jumped off the cliff before she was hit on the ground.
I knew that if she wasn’t the one that I was searching for then, she is going to be killed but I don’t know why but I was activated in my body when she got off the cliff. I reached the ground before she and I jumped up to get her.
When I saw her I was really glad. I really could hold her. That means she was actually the one, I was searching for. My happiness got no boundaries after knowing that. I got her back to her foster home and secretly carried all of the girls who bullied her along with me.
These girls are somewhere repenting for their sins and they have some more to go through.
I remember what the priest had said,” The sacrifice should be happy and sacrificed on her own consent.”
I was cursed because of the woman. I am living the life stuck between the journey between death and life, just because of that curse.
And, I am happy I found my scapegoat, my sacrifice, and my sole key to the journey of the afterlife.
** Getting a job**It was pre-planned for everything that happened to her. Everything was meant to be like that. She was meant to be bullied. She was meant to be illusional and she was meant to fall off the cliff just because someone was checking up on him and was still gonna check up on her.Her life was totally going to be changed after she had joined the company because it wasn’t the company she yearned to work but it was the company she was trapped in to be there. The boy, the newspaper, the charms on the face of the CEO, and the vacancy announcement, they were all trap to bring her there, to bring their sacrificial offering to themselves.He was cursed. Cursed with one of the strongest curses, he was stopped from leaving the world and joining the destination of the eternal afterlife. Only, a suitable sacrifice who should be a woman could break it.
** Lone Again**Heidi was more than just a shocked. She expected Aries would remember her and they would be talking something like friends but no, it was different. Instead, he didn’t even ask, how she was she all these years. Life is such a ridiculous thing right? Who knew that one day, it would turn like this? She thought deep and took a bus home.When she reached her room, she heard some sounds from the inside. Who could it be? No one comes to her home and literally no one except Katie as she had no one who could come to her home. She could even hear the sounds of the guy in there.She quickly opened the door and then, stared at her room. There were the outfits scattered on the floor. The female one. Was it Katie? She walked further and she saw the male outfits another minute. She picked up those clothes a
**Ridiculous Life** Heidi couldn’t sleep all night. How could she ? She had one joy to celebrate and more than that joy she had something she had lost so near to her heart. Maybe, she was so much overacting or maybe she was thinking too much but at the end of the day, she lost her friend. One and only friend.She opened the fridge and checked the beer in there and walking to her balcony and looking at the beautiful half-moon, she sipped the beer, thinking how unfortunate she her fate was. The warm tears were rolling down her cheeks and she was smiling a forced smile looking at the moon above.“ What the hell? Why are you crying a lot today ?” a
** The Zero Sounds Interesting** She woke up in the morning. Today, she has no one to call her and wake her up for being late for college.“ Katie, Katie, where are you ?” she called her unconsciously and realized later on that she is no long there. She stood up from couch and walked to her room where she had created the mess last night.She picked up the bedsheet that she ripped last night and threw it in dustbin. She has to move today. She quickly, walked to the bathroom took the shower and then, changed and packed the stuffs that she needed to for some days.She had thought of coming back on some days and packing up the more stuffs she needed. As, she had already paid for t
** My First Kiss Stealer** She signs the contract paper without even going through it properly. The zeros after the decimal number made her so much greedy that she didn’t gave a second thought to it. She just grabbed it and then, signed it quickly. After signing, he quickly grabbed the papers away from her and kept it in the shelf.He was happy getting the contract paper. Why wouldn’t he ? After all now, he has got his prey, his sacrifice.He returned back to his seat and then, gestured her with his finger to get out of his room. She looked all confused and all puzzled. The series of questionaires were written on her face.
** My Rules Breaker** That was the first ever kiss she had had for her whole life and she was never ready for it. Every girl expects something really grand, ecstatic and full of love and affection for their first kiss on their life and there he kissed her like she was nothing else, just some random mannequin and kissed her even without her consent.Or maybe no one kisses with consent maybe. She closed her face with her small, soft palms and spread who were more than room and closed the door.Her heart was beating in so much high pace that she had to place her hands above her heart and blow in and out air for couple of
**With Aries** In the company,Heidi was called in the office by Aries for work. She was appointed as the intern for the company as she was new to work. Heidi was really glad that she was getting a huge amount of money for just being an intern for a company.She thought she was paid high because she was working in one of the biggest companies, of the whole nation. But, in a reality that wasn’t true. She was bought, she was bought for the time she will be living there.Nothing in the
** There is no king**The car stopped in front of the company. She got out of the car and stood in front of the Emerald Group of companies and breathed heavy in an excitement. She was really glad to be able to work at one of the most reputed company of the whole country.She elevated her e
