Mariana sat by the window silently staring outside, the rain kept hitting on the glass it's rhythm soothing to her ears.
Beryl had covered her thoughts, all she could see was daughter.
Stephanie had come up a while ago asking her to come down and have dinner with them but she seemed to had lost all her appetite within a snap.
Mariana had unknowingly gone back to pushing herself away from people without realising it, Her thoughts, her past and her pain had become the centre of her world once more.
Marco walked in to her room and she didn't even notice, he leaned by the door and stared at her. His thoughts moved back to the first day he had walked into this room after she had arrived, the way she had pushed him away still hurt a bit.
A lone tear escaped down her cheeks but there was no way she would notice, there was no day or night her eyes weren't empty even when she was trying to run away.
Yet they were the best beautiful thing he had ever
Davin was walking by Mariana's room towards the basement but suddenly he came to a stop, curiosity enticing his nerves. He seriously hated this girl with so much passion yet found himself wanting to see what she really was up to.He looked inside, more careful so he won't be noticed only to find the room empty, even the bed where she should be at this time.Turning his direction he walked in to her room slowly, the only window in here was closed so she certainly hadn't escaped but where was she if not in here at 2: 47 in the morning.Prying his eyes away from his wrist watch and looking around once more the light from the bathroom caught his attention "Mariana " he called out but he still got only silence.Pushing the bathroom door open slowly, he froze his eyes wide as he stared at the girl on the floor. He moved towards her kneeling besides her, he didn't care if she was laying in a pool of her own
Within the midst of darkness, a forge she wanted to escape so badly. Her feet scrapped against the rough floor with each step tookHard and faster, her breathing hallowTears sprinted from her eyes as she came to a sudden halt. " Beryl " She called out loud but got no specific reply, turning around in circles she called
Marco stared at Mariana as she silently pulled herself into a sitting position, she had been transferred out of the ICU where she had been in Coma for one week and two days.Her dark soft brown hair fell in deep waves over her shoulders, her blue liquid eyes holding a light shade of grey and her fairly pink lips in a thin line. This was the first time he was looking at her like the woman she his really not some one he helped.For the first time Marco felt the urge to claim some one so badly, only staring at her right now had caused his heart to slam against his chest crazily than he ever felt it before. She looked up at him his gold - honey eyes meeting hers making her want to lower her eyes in shame as her cheeks became red."Hey " he whispered his voice deep, she could swear she felt it's vibration all over her body. Looking up at him again due to the softness she felt in his voice, some thing was beautifully wrong.
Looking away from Marco, she felt her heart sink and tears cloud her visions. Closing her eyes she dropped her hands off his body causing him to notice her distaste.He was a player, she had seen him bang a lady on his front desk and lastly a Di Martino they got no hearts.Marco watched as she looked back at him, he hadn't shifted a bit from his position so they were still close.Her eyes portrayed pain and held tears " Mariana " he whispered now this is what he was so afraid of, her reaction was starting to make him regret kissing her yet it was something he didn't want to forget or feel guilty about.The door creaked making him pull away from her in a rush, staring at the doctor who smiled there way."Well Marco all I can tell you is that she can go home now and needs more rest don't stress her out, oh and about what you asked me; she can definitely talk whenever she wants "This ticked off Mariana, her hands balled in to fist. H
Standing by the elevator, Mariana closed her eyes for a minute remembering her Father's words.' always take your ears as your number one weapon, they can do more than what your eyes can ever do " She silently listened attentively, her breathing rugged. Silent cries and sobs but then something else caught her attention. She could hear the safety being changed, pointing out the gun in the direction.She remembered the man she saw earlier, his position and height then raised her gun in that direction and shot.She hid back as a loud groan was heard all over the room, grabbing Marco's arm she started pulling him towards down the hall as the lights came back on making them both freeze.
Mariana stared at the Mansion in front of her as she got out of the car, the large compound full of trees sculpted into different shapes beautifully.She closed the door of the car behind her, moving around lightly taking in the beautiful fresh air. The mansion painted brown gold colours bigger than anything she had ever seen.She looked at the double doors then knew this was it, how was she going to manage to leave with Di Martino brothers after all that happened a while ago and all the secrets she held in.They were going to know who she really was and then kill her, a shiver rushed down her spine while her palms started to sweat making her wipe them multiple times on her dress. There's one thing she was so sure about, she really needs to find a way out of here."You okay ?" Marco's voice broke through her train of thoughts, she looked his way nodding lightly.He held out his hand to hold her chin b
Mariana stared at herself in the mirror adjusting the white apron around her waist, She had wanted to talk to Marco about this whole thing but all the men were locked in Antonio's office for a certain special meeting "Aveline and Stephanie had helped out a lot in getting her this black dress and apron, now this was it. It was time to pay a debt.Marco had given a house to stay, protection, fed her and saved her life several times now the only the thing she could do to pay him back was to work as a maid in this mansion and be more helpful at least.Or maybe it was the guilty in her for all that happened today, maybe it was the only reason behind this.She wondered why the Cobra's were after the Di Martino brothers if there target was only her. It was all very confusing now so where her own thoughts, she wondered if Valente also knew where exactly she was or did he forget about her since she was just another slave he had used.Shaking her head
Mariana stood up grabbing her plate along and walked over to the sink placing it in then turned around to face Marco.He still stood by the door, his muscular arms folded around his chest, he still wore the Armani suit he had on in this morning. His hair was more disorganized."Mariana " he whispered lightly walking over to where she stood, he didn't give her much time to process what was happening next but acted on impact.Marco pulled her in his arms hugging her as tight as he could like all his tomorrow depended on it, his arm wrapped around her back and the other holding onto the back of her head.Good enough she was far more shorter than him getting an easy access to his heart beat, wrapping her arms around him. She could fe his pain. Some how she wanted to take it all away and make it disappear through thin hair and maybe see his smile even if it's just this once.She held onto him tightly, it felt so good to have his arms wrapped around her.
