Earlier I was rolling like tires in my bed. 5 am and I still can't sleep because of the anger in my heart. Tired and reluctant to get up. Maybe the poison is already affecting.
While I was worried about the possible effect of the poison on me, maybe that useless Zaki was now so overjoyed.
I wish he'll die soon! That idiot!
Wait, why don't I try to get a doctor? Maybe that freak is just fooling me around. That is possible because that person is still abnormally stupid.
It's annoying because I can't get his serious face and eyes out of my mind.
= You belong to me Roden, now and forever. I won't let you leave my side. You must stay beside me until I get tired of you, or else I will wipe all the Stygian here in Cordova City without leaving any single trace of them! =
He was mad, his courage to say those things. He is an alien, a demon.
Why am I acting like this? It's the freak's fault. I feel like I can’t do anything. Damn that evil man. He must die. I hate him so much for forcing into things, cursing him for ordering me!
That person is a pest. I've been thinking about him all night, he's the only thing on my mind. Annoying! I was thinking about how to kill him to avenge myself.
If I go to the doctor and check me, they will see the dirty marks of that bastard's bite on my body.
Damn! Is there nothing I can do but follow all the orders of that alien stupid bastard Zaki?
The hell. I'll just get ready and go to school.
You also have a day with me, Zaki. I'll make sure to make you pay! I will also paraphrase you with the Stygian you despise, you demon. Get ready.!(Crown University)
I was just watching Clai, Sid, Stan, Theron, Dylan, and Gabe playing basketball.
They were happy, no worries, sweating profusely and laughing.
I’m interested in Clai. Maybe it's because he's serious, and he doesn't pay attention to me. Tsk.
Their game was over, so I decided to block Clai.
“Clai, nice game!” I whispered.
"Rod, how are you? I went to your house last night, you didn't come out of your room." He said wiping the sweat from his body.
“I felt bad last night, but I'm okay now.” I smiled at him.
"Is that so? Maybe you should rest first. Rest more, you look so exhausted. I'll take care of the collection. Don't worry."
"Okay, all right .... Ah, Clai let's eat outside later?"
"I have an appointment later, maybe next time. I'll see you later." Clai said patting my shoulder and past me.
"Who's that good chix?" I heard a Stygians ask Clai.
"The hell of you, that's Roden, don't you know her?" Clai replied to them.
I got nervous! My hands shaking and I can't breathe properly.
Is Zaki's medicine already working? What did he inject into me? Will that change my face. Damn it!
I'm leaving the school building. Unlike my sisters Zaneah and Aslani, I prefer to be alone. Clai is the only one I want to be with.
Is this really how you like someone?
I'm also lucky because I can get close to the person I want, unlike others, just look at their crush from afar.
I was about to park when I saw the approaching men. Based on their appearance, they are the Lethals.
TSK I ready myself because It looks like I'm their target.
There are 3 of them, look strong and big.
We fought with their group once, and they lost. This is how they will take revenge. One by one they try to punch and kick me.
I was hit on the side, so I sprang up. Shit!!
I was about to start fighting when someone suddenly appeared and knocked the three Lethals ......
I just watched Zaki how he broke the bones of those men.
All his movements were refined and calculated. Clean, fast, quiet and all I could hear was the sound of the Lethals bones breaking.
Rocking the three.
“That was a fight!” He said and addressed me.
I just have to say. He's cool haha. Tsss.
“Thank you.” Like. Eh, why am I thankful for this uselessness?
"Are you alright? I saw you are hit earlier." He asked worriedly.
I narrowed my eyes at him.
"I'm perfectly fine. Don't worry."
He smiled, showing his perfect teeth and the cutest dimple.
“It’s Friday again, right Roden?” He said and approached me.
I can't speak anymore.
"RH, Same room, 6 pm." He said and turned his back on me.
It's only 4:30 pm.
In his ability to fight, I just don't have the fighting skills compared to him. I'm even more afraid of Zaki now.
(Rapture Hotel*Gold room*)
I went inside and found Zaki asleep.
This man was like an angel when asleep, but he still defeated Satan for how evil he is.
I was struck by the sight of a very beautiful gown, heels next to the tuxedo. Who is the owner of the gown and heels?
"Roden, you're already here," Zaki said so I looked back at him.
I was surprised when he suddenly pulled me into the bathroom.
"Wait, what is it?"
"Let's hurry up and take a bath, it's about to start!"
"What's going to start ?!"
He didn't answer me and jumped into the huge tub with me.
This man is annoying.
"That's something for you. You look like a woman there." Zaki said to me while looking at the gown I was wearing.
"Why are you dressing me up ha? I came here for the antidote, not because of your games. What is this ha?"
Why did he make me wear such a beautiful gown and heels? I admit Zaki is handsome in his tuxedo. It was obvious that he came from a very rich family.
"Let's go." He said dragging me out of the room.
Where does he intend to take me?
Zaki took me to the event place of the Rapture Hotel.
Everyone looks rich. What is the reason why they gather here? Why did Zaki bring me here?
"Zak, who is this beautiful beauty with you?" A man asked.
"She is my classmate." Zaki casually introduced me himself and held my hand.
"She's shy." Another laughed.
They look like politicians. TSK I honestly don't like other politicians.
What exactly is this gathering? And who are these? All eyes were still on Zaki and me.
"Zaki, it looks like I don't have a role here, so I'm leaving," I said and pulled my hand away.
"What about the antidote?"
"I just wait for you in the gold room," I said and turned around.
Right when I confronted him, Clai appeared to me!
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?” Clai and I asked at the same time. We were both shocked.
"I invited him here," Zaki said behind me.
“What is this Zaki?” Clai asked.
"Well about what we talked about earlier. Let's take Roden as our stake for our game tomorrow." Zaki said.
STAKE ????!?WHAT'S HAPPENING HERE?
"What are you talking about? I thought so?" Clai stammered in shock.
"Do you think I'll only bet money? Ts, if I beat you tomorrow, against us, you'll go out or date Roden." Zaki said to Clai.
What is this man saying?
Clai looked at me.
I have no idea of my situation right now.
"Fine! If I won I'm going to kill you!" Clai said and turned around.
"That's good," Zaki replied.
I confronted him.
“What are you doing?” I asked him.
"Haven't you wanted that man for a long time? Isn't it obvious, I'm helping you to him!"
“Who the hell needs you to do that?” I shouted.I continue to grab the attention of the people there even more.
"Anyway, all I want is a more challenging match tomorrow. Because of you, that Clarence Zamora will try harder to win, so watch how I beat your first love ........! Cheers. ” He said and raised the glass.
He knows me! What kind of alien is Zaki?
Insulting me too much. Using me as a stake a bet. What am I to him? A plaything?
Who does he think he is to do this? What else could he do?
If he fights with Clai, what kind of fight will it be?
He's been taking too much of my life.
Looks like I can't escape this person anymore. What’s going on, why did Clai join the picture?
(Sharian Roden POV) "Here, take this for the reservation. The place is top-near the hidden arena, for you to see as clearly as we fight." Zaki said handing me a blue card with Z. Delrama written on it. "Did I tell you I'm going to watch? I won't go watch! You know you've been interfering too much. How long will I have to pay for my sin with you?" I replied, not accepting the card, and sat in the chair I saw in front of him. "You immediately forgot everything I told you. You're mine! So even if you don't want to or if you want to, you'll watch. You must watch, you are our stake, right?" He throws the card at me. I want to break the neck of this bastard!. He was holding my life. It's hard to escape from him. "Fine, I'll watch but tell me about that event first," I asked taking the card. Zaki stood up, took off his coat, and sipped wine. &nbs
(Zaki POV) "What are you doing Zak?! Choosing a fighter carefree! I know how important this hotel is to you, but why did you choose Roden to fight for you? You know I'm better than her why didn't you choose me, huh?" Aileen yelled at me. Aileen has been working with our family for a long time. We are just the same age and have trained to fight together from childhood until now. Aileen was dad’s fighter, and she was a fighter earlier than me. Behind the Rapture Hotel class is the boring customs. "Shut up Aileen. I know what I'm doing." "Stupid, it's the end of your ownership when Roden loses, I have a strong feeling that she will lose. Do you understand? Because when she loses the ownership will be taken away from you and the ownership will go to Clarence. I can't believe you're being stupid." Aileen shouted. "Oh please shut
(Roden POV) I was walking down the hallway to the Icon Room when someone suddenly grabbed my arm. Turning around, Clai's face opened up to me with an unreadable expression. "Why did you agree to be Delrama's fighter?" He asked and tightened his grip on my arm. "Oh? So you know now? Why? Are you afraid of me?" I raised an eyebrow at him. "What's between you two?" I remember what Zaki and I were like. I'm Zaki's possession, even though I don't want to admit it I still feel that he's holding me. "Argh, the hell, who the hell cares what's between us anyway?" "What is this?" He said he was holding the bracelet given by Zaki with the ZAKI's logo." What's going on?" "You don't have to know. One more thing, you're probably not afraid to lose so why are you asking questions?" I said and p
(Roden POV) I just looked at Zaki while getting dressed. I touched my jaw. Furthermore, I was nervous before that I might not be able to get my jaw back, but in just a second Zaki got it back to normal as if he hadn't just dislocated it. There is something hidden from this guy. "Come on. I'll take you home." He said after getting dressed and fixing my uniform that he messed up. He pulled me up and down on the bed. Zaki held my back out of the clinic. I feel like I'm not that angry with him anymore. In the hallway, he stopped and looked down. I saw Ian and Nate in the garden sitting on the bench. I looked at Zaki. He stared at Ian. For the first time, I felt jealous of a man. Zaki's gaze is full of love for his younger childhood Ian Cole Mercado even though
(Roden POV) <Crown University> Until now, I still can't move properly. That Zaki is naughty. My whole body hurts. "Hey, you're alone again huh." Said a voice behind me. I was distracted. There are six men and one woman in the group. Who are these people again? TSK with the number of enemies I have, I don't know if my enemy or friend is in front of me. I was just shocked when someone kicked me. Arghh shit, I can't fight well because my body still hurts. Damn it! They beat me to death. "Are you a Stygian? We heard the Stygian are strong and good fighters, but it doesn't look like that!" The woman said once pulling my hair. "I'm just not in the mood right now," I answered, so the woman knelt on me and slapped me. "Then we'll just kill you with no difficulty." They keep hurting
(Roden POV) "Listen, Roden, never forget my only condition for you as my muse," Zaki said as he helped me get dressed for the media interview later with all the muses of the Rapture Hotel. "Yeah, I'll never forget to say anything to you first before taking steps." I nodded. I just stared at Zaki's beautiful face as he adjusted my gown. RH has a lot of stylish and beauticians, but Zaki's gown is the one I chose and will wear. Someone took it out of the drawer, a box, and bowed. "Your feet." He said getting high heels in the box. I lifted my foot a little, so he could put my heels on. I held his hair, so I wouldn't be out of balance while he wore my heels in my foot. "They fit perfectly." He said staring at my feet and stood up. "Thank you." "You are beautifu
(Sharian Roden POV) "Zak wait, please listen to me," I said as I back away from Zaki. I don’t know what he’s thinking and how he’s feeling right now. He just stared at me as he continued to approach me, removing the necktie around his neck. "Zak please, it's not my fault." I was surprised when he suddenly pulled me and hugged me. I just closed my eyes. The strength of my chest pounding, fear dominates my body now. "The bracelet, I want it back." He said hugging me tightly. "Are you angry? I didn't lose it on purpose, please believe me." I stuttered. "Please Roden, find that and prove you deserve that bracelet." He stammered softly. "I'll find it," I answered. "I'll give you 24 hours, to find it. If you can't fin
(Zaki POV) At first, I couldn't believe what Aileen said that Roden was talking to Mr. Aurillo and Nashi Marquez. I was so disappointed with Roden because she ruined one of the most important things to me as a powerful man in Cordova City, she even violated my only condition with her as my muse. I am powerful even if I am not a gangster or smuggler. Likewise, I don't have to be a gangster for people to look at me. If I want money or women, I can get them easily. No need for me to threaten or make a good impression just to get and enjoy what I want from others. I have money, power, and authority. I can get everything I want, that's what I thought. Because love can never be bought. If you yearn for passion and warmth, you have to show kindness, be willing to sacrifice everything, and be ready to take all
