Lily in the morning was putting the plates and glasses on the table when Max came there. “I had a good sleep last night,” murmured Max and got seated on one of the chairs. Lily looked at him and slightly smiled, “Nice to know that you have a goodnight's sleep.” Lily muttered and told him to eat the omelet that was placed on his plate.
“Why do you always cook this in breakfast? “ Max complained and cut it with the knife and started eating.
“Because it is easy to made,” stated Lily and sat beside him. She drank the lactose-free milk with the buttered toast when Max said, “Mark has indeed green eyes. He is a perfect definition of a gentleman. I am getting a feeling that he will break up with his fiancée to-”
Lily stopped him from spea
Lily was working on a report when Charlie put a load of documents on her desk. “Lily, please put the entries in by the evening” he said. Lily checked the documents. “Is this work not for the editing staff? Why are they sending it here?” Lily inquired him.“The chief there said that your resume also mentioned editing work. So, edit them by the evening, compile them and email it to the editing office,” stated Charlie. Lily nodded and told him that she would do that. Charlie thanked her and walked away. “They are taking revenge from me. They are dumping their works to me,” murmured Lily.“Why did you do that then? You proposed openly to Young Mark Scott in front of the entire nation,” said Betty whose desk was beside her. She turned her chair towards Lily and looked at her. “Do you know what the other news articles say about you?” Betty queried her.“No. Are their articl
Her eyes fluttered as she looked at the person’s face. The fearsome eyes of that person frightened her. His pale white skin sent shivers through her entire body. She gulped the saliva that had formed in her throat. Her breaths were getting uneven when the person smiled creepily at her. She stepped back and turned to run away from there when that person in a flash of a second appeared before her.She was confused that how could a person appear so fast in front of her. She stepped back while the person stepped towards her, the creep smile was still on his face. “You can see me. It is an unbelievable thing that a human can see ghosts,” muttered the person.“Gh-ghosts?” Lily mumbled and without wasting any second she started running upstairs, beside which she was standing. She was panting heavily as she was running upstairs when she took a turn to the left, unbeknownst where she was heading to. “Help, help,” she shouted as loud as
Xavier came towards Mark. “Sir, what happened?” Xavier asked, looking at Lily who was in Mark’s arms.“Xavier, prepare a room for Miss Lily,” stated Mark and went to his room. He placed Lily on the bed gently. Taking out phone from his pocket, he put it on the bedside table. He saw the hair strands which had come front of Lily’s face. He tucked them behind her ear and straightened up. Putting his hands inside his pants pockets, he came towards the door when his mother came there.“I heard Lily is here. What happened to her?” Elizabeth asked worriedly.“Miss Evan is unconscious for now. She has seen a wandering soul. Luckily I was there so, I took the action and brought her here,” Mark pronounced.“She has started seeing them? But when she will wake up, she will question you. How will you answer her? Should I erase her memory?” Elizabeth queried him.<
Lily looked around Mark’s room. “He has such an opulent life. What it feels like to be born in a royal family, I wonder!!” muttered Lily. She saw a velvet colored royal wingback chair. “I guess he will take time. Till then I can feel how does it feel to sit here?” she mumbled and quickly went towards it. She rested herself on it. “Wow, it is so soft. I might get a sleep in just a minute, sitting over it. Wait, where is my phone? I should click a selfie.”She searched for her phone in her pockets but could not find it. “Huh… where did it go?” she murmured and recalled when she turned the flashlight on, she in fear dropped it as Mark touched her shoulder. “Oh no!! What if someone is calling me? I have to go back to the hotel.” She almost got up from that chair when Mark walked inside and his eyes fell on Lily who was sitting on the chair.They both stared at each other for a few seconds when Lily su
“Come from heart?” Mark questioned with a raised brow. Lily nodded and put her hand down. “No one can teach you things like this. You have to feel on your own,” Lily stated.Mark averted his gaze from her and then put a thought over it. “By the way, can I ask something?” Lily questioned.Mark turned his gaze again on her. “Yes, please,” voiced Mark.“How much will it cost to make a house in a place like this by someone?” Lily asked him.“Umm… Ms. Evan, The Woods is a restricted region. The region is only for some of the Royal families of Scotland. Foreign intrusion is not acceptable so, I am afraid that someone cannot purchase any land here.” Mark explained to her which did not please Lily.“Why only some of the people have access to this area? Isn’t this discrimination?” Lily muttered and huffed.Mark faintly smiled
“I am going. There is nothing in this hotel. That soul might have escaped the instant it had seen you near Lily Evan,” opined Michael. Mark nodded and thanked him for coming. Michael then vanished in thin air.“A fallen angel?!” Mark murmured before living the Three Chimneys. He was now in the villa, in his room. His eyes fell on the wingback chair and he recalled how Lily was sitting there earlier. “Why am I thinking about that woman?” he wondered and went to the changing room, changed into his nightclotheses.Turning the lights off, he went to the bed and slid into the sheets. There was dim yellow light glowing in his room. His eyes were fixed on the ceiling as he tried to take some sleep. Hours passed like that but sleep could not reach his eyes. He then took the lid of the bedside lamp in his hand and kept pressing it thus, turning it on and off.Unable to sleep, he sat at the bed and looked at the time.
“Lily,” Mark whispered the name as he saw in front of him. But wait her eyes were closed and she was standing straight in front of him when he noticed the other thing- he was holding her hand. Immediately, he released her hand when she fell but Mark caught her. “Lily, Lily,” Mark called out her name as he patted on her soft cheeks, lightly.He sat on the grassy ground, holding Lily. He looked around and found the fog was clear. He was again in the same place. “Did I sleepwalk again? But what is Lily doing with me this time? How come I held her hand and took her here?” Mark wondered.Lifting his right hand, Mark joined the two fingers together and placed it at Lily’s forehead, the place between her brows. But he was failed to see the memories. Not one but entire memories of Lily were blocked, he could not see anything. “Why am I not able to see her memories?” Mark murmured.He looked around a
“I am fine, Lily,” Mark said softly. Lily released his hands and then got up. “I must leave. I have troubled you a lot. Forgive me for that,” Lily asserted, lowering her eyes. A door knock interrupted the two when Mark stood up and told Lily to sit on the couch because he would drop her home.Mark went to the door and opened it. “Serena, you here? This early?” Mark asked with a surprising look and let her came in. Serena stepped inside and saw at a far end near the bed Lily.“What is she doing here?” Serena asked Mark.“We were talking about something,” Mark replied her and then looked at Lily who came towards them. She forwarded her hand towards Serena to shook hands with her but Serena ignored her and turned to Mark.“Mark, I do not like the presence of another woman in your room. Hope you will understand,” Serena stated. Lily felt somewhat bad upon hearing those words. She took back her hand.“Serena, you are taking us w
