My head feels like there is a heavyweight on it. My body aches everywhere. Max's constant chatter with Li is not helping my situation. I open my eyes and look at the direction from where I hear his noise.
"Hey..." my voice is barely a whisper.
They must have heard me anyway, because suddenly My father, Li, Max and Amanda surround my bed with wide eyes and huge smiles.
"Oh my God you are awake.."
"You scared us..."
They all started to talk at once.
"Guys..." I try to tell them to stop talking but my voice comes out scratchy and dry.
I motion with hand to give me some water. Luckily they understand and Amanda brings me water while my father helps me to drink it.
There are unshed tears in my father's eyes which he tries to cover by looking down.
"Father..." I gently place my hand on his and try to smile. I wish it looked like one.
"You were s
I was discharged yesterday. His highness was with me the entire night. He signed all the papers and within 10 minutes I am in my room in the Mansion.Apparently, the royal pack has a hospital in which I was admitted.The doctor whom I met there, is the pack doctor and there are 4 more doctors for different problems.They treat both humans and shifters, as there are some humans who mated with the shifters and some of their children who are born humans as well.The royal pack has more than 2000 people residing in it. Both humans and shifters combined.What surprised me the most was, his highness. He was so caring and attentive. It was tough to stop myself from staring at him and once I felt like hugging him tightly and never let go.Stupid, I know. But I cannot explain these feelings. I am not emotional by nature or that's what I think. When I was with my grandfather, I know what to expect from him. So there was never any high expectations and no ro
I should push him away and run from there. I should feel repulsed that he is touching me without my permission and scream for help.I do neither, instead I feel more relaxed and peaceful."You should not let strangers touch you," he says after some time as if reading my thoughts."Will I look crazy, if I say I know it's you even before you sat behind me," I responded honestly.He stills behind me for a second and then relaxes completely. He brings me closer to him with a possessive hold around my waist."Darius""What?" I ask him confused."Call me Darius" he clarify"Oh.," I say lamely."How? " I know what he is asking. He is asking how I know that it's him. But I try to deflate the question."I thought you will run away thinking that I am crazy." I avoid his question."I have been here for a long time to know which is truly crazy. And this is not that. You truly are crazy though, standing in front of me
I wake up with an irritating sound of someone knocking on my door. When I open my eyes, instead of bright blue walls, I face black and grey walls. It's like a mini apartment.The bedroom and living room are separated with a glass wall with a sliding glass door. There are black and grey drapes covering the glass wall. The wall behind the bed is also a glass wall that goes all the way to the living room. The view of the lake can be appreciated from both the bedroom and the living room.Cream color rug greets my feet as soon as I get down from the huge bed. The living area is tastefully decorated with black color furniture and a glass coffee table and incredible artwork adorn the walls here and there.I know who's room it is. His cologne still lingers in the air. I must of fallen asleep last night, how embarrassing. I close my eyes and decide to leave his room before he comes back.I bath and dress up in my room. I need to get out of here to clear my head.
"Leave her Melanie" Amber tries to reason with her, but she is not having any of it.She keeps dragging me behind her and I am struggling to keep Pace with her long strides. Everyone is watching the scene she is making and her minions are filling the people on the way about the pendant I apparently stole.As soon as they hear this, they glare at me. Apparently everyone is believing what she is saying, and the pendant is not helping my cause.My wound started to hurt with the way she is dragging me behind her like a dog. My breath is labored. It's hurting to even breathe."Her father is a respectable man, she turned out to be a thief?""How can she steal from His highness?""What a shameless girl""Is she for real? Stealing from our Alpha?""Our king should make an example out of her""She should be exiled from the pack"People started throwing insults my way. My eyes well up with unshed tears. But I won't gi
He is Furious. As soon as we reach his room, he gently placed me on his bed and arranged the pillows so that I can lean on them.He called a maid and ordered her to send some breakfast for me with none other than Melanie.He checked my wound, I hissed with pain when he touched a particular tender area on the right side of my stomach.After a few minutes Doctor Judy came to check on me. Apparently I had an appointment with her today. She checked my wound and recommended rest.She raised her eyebrows in question when she looked at the now visible handprints of Melanie on my forearm. I just shrugged my shoulders and she Applies some cream without probing further.The good doctor left after she exchanged few words with Darius.Darius is yet to change back to his human self. His eyes still blazing with anger. Just then someone knocked on the door."Come in " Darius called.A very scared Melanie appeared with breakfast. D
It's been a week since I last saw Darius. I am the one who asked for some space and I am the one who is missing our time together.Is it possible to miss anyone with whom we just spoke thrice? Apparently the answer seems to be yes.After that Melanie fiasco, I firmly planted my self in my room. My new maid Melanie brings me food and all the essential items I need.She was instructed to sample all my meals in front of me before I can eat them. When I looked at Max when it happened the first time, he simply said"Precaution"I just nodded my head and let them do whatever they want. I am not interested in arguing anyways.Max gave me my new mobile 6 days ago, with Darius's number already saved into the contacts.Everyday Amber, Li and Max comes to my room to keep me company.Amber and Li bombarded me with questions about Darius. I told them bits and pieces, and tucked away all our private moments in my heart.They
I close my mouth to stop myself from making any sound. I am scared is an understatement. I am terrified. That guy is holding her neck and she seems to be losing the battle with her life.I take my mobile out and start recording everything. I gather my courage and yell at that guy."Let her go" my palms are sweaty and I am shaking all over.His blood-red eyes turn my way and he slowly stares at me from top to bottom, when his eyes reach my chest area he licks his lips suggestively."I think I will take you with me tonight, after I am done here" he squeezes her neck harder all the while looking at me.That girls face is turning pale. She will die soon if he doesn't stop."I said let her go" I command him more firmly this time."What if I don't" he momentarily loosen his grip on the girl."I will make sure you regret that" I warn him.What the hell is taking you so long Max?He laughs loudly, his shoulders shaking." You
After assuring and reassuring Darius that I am absolutely fine for an hour, I feel exhausted. He checked me for any possible injuries. After seeing it himself that I am alright, he seems to be satisfied.The next day my father, Darius and Max discussed the incident and how to bring it to the supernatural court.Supernatural court is the place where all the supernatural lords gather, if there is an incident that should be taken care of. Like the one that happened last night.Apparently, all the lord's take the safety of humans seriously. They do not want to disturb the fragile balance and harmony we all have.They all want to protect their own kind from any possible disputes. Every side will have casualties if anyone disobeys the laws and becomes the reason for a dispute.The laws are simple.1. Never harm a human. Don't let them too close. If you don't like them, then stay away.2. Stay away from other supernatural territory. Tak
