Within the midst of darkness, a forge she wanted to escape so badly. Her feet scrapped against the rough floor with each step took
Hard and faster, her breathing hallow
Tears 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.
Mariana stood in her room, Stephanie had ordered for her many clothes but none of them seemed to be comfortable for the night.All the shirts Marco had given her where left back at his house, yet she was used to his cologne. The smell of dry wood and danger he held was addictive.The silk night gowns didn't seem like a thing for her, her eyes moved over to Marco's coat then back at the night dress but her mind seemed to have already decided on a night gown.She moved towards the bed and stripped out of her uniform then placed the coat on top of her white lingerie before getting under white and dark green duvet.A sense of comfort and peace savoured her, as her eyes closed. It felt like Marco was here with her, his arms wrapped around her.Unconsciously she didn't realize she was smiling, now that's something she rarely did.Marco was crossing all the borders and walls around her, he was starting to form a place for himself in her heart
10 : 35 amThe car arrived at the ware house as Artur stepped out of the building, Gaetano, Marco and Gianni stepped out as the two other cars came to a halt.Aveline, Piper and Mariana stepped out of the second car and walked in behind the guys so where the other men.They all walked in to the office, Gianni threw everything off the table as Artur and Viktor walked in with a map in hand.They knew they had to make a plan only with hope of things not going down the drain.****"Ana " Davin spoke up earning Mariana's attention as she set up her gun, looking up at him he handed her the phone.Mariana's eyes moved up staring at Davin confusingly then back at the phone screen.' Stay Alive Gift ' She smiled knowingly then handed the phone back to Davin, her eyes settling on the gun once again.<
