I don’t know how much time has passed already, considered that there is no clock in this room. They haven’t given me any food either while hours must have passed since Agent Vitali left me here.
I sigh to myself while I stay seated on the bed. Raising my hand, I rub my temples, tiredness overcoming my body and mind. I need to sleep, but I can't bring myself to sleep, because I am confined in a place where people only care about what they want or need. Even if I am helpless, I must stay wide awake so I know who tried to harm me and why in general.
Suddenly, the door to the white dull room opens after hours and the Agent who-I-don’t-know the name of…steps inside leisurely. His eyes land on mine and he pauses beside the door.
I feel a wave of fear passing through my body for a moment, but then the utter calmness claims my mind again.
“ Having fun? ” He lifts his right eyebrow in amusement and utters.
This one se
VALENTINA Just what is this Agent trying to prove by acting so unprofessional with me? He wants to get the truth out of me by using seduction? That’s the worst thing he can do…to me and to himself too. I can get angry at him for doing this repeatedly, but I can’t deny the fact that his seduction works on me a great deal. “ You look hot like this. ” He whispers in the same deep voice to me and the fact that I can’t see how he is looking at me right now makes me want to hide somewhere. “ Do you seduce all female captives like this? Is this your speciality? ” I shoot back, goosebumps rising over my skin. Why do I bother to reply to him every single time in the first place? Perhaps, he is too good at his job and that’s why he is so famous among everyone. Some fear him, some like thorn clan and me. Some need him, like this agency and many more agencies do. “ It’s just you. ” He replie
VALENTINAThe ride to the so-called safe house is taking longer than I expected. To my relief, Agent Vitali is driving the car silently instead of getting on my nerves.I relax in the seat, pulling my legs up in a mannerless way. He doesn’t say anything and the blindfold around my eyes prevents me from seeing his reaction.I sigh, closing my eyes behind the blindfold and deciding to just go to sleep for a while. Not knowing where I am going or what is going to happen to me is nothing new to me so it’s not scaring me like it used to scare me before.“ We are almost there. Don’t sleep in the car as I will have to wake you up in half an hour. Sleep once we are there. ” He speaks after a long time in a casual tone and I only end up humming.My mind is too sleepy to think about what he is saying. I just want to rest before I am thrown into all difficult situations once more.Even if he knows I won&rs
VALENTINA“ This is harassment! ” I gasp, leaning away from him instantly.“ There is no law and order for you. ” He mimics my tone, the smirk still present on his lips.I squint my eyes, throwing him a glare. He is right about no law and order for me. He can do whatever he wants to me and no one will ever find out or care about it in the first place.“ Eat before you faint again. ” He whispers all of a sudden, pulling away from me.Going back to his chair, he slumps down on it and begins eating without sparing me another glance.I look down at the pasta in my plate and pick up the fork to eat. I need energy if I want to deal with this mouth-watering Agent.We both eat in silence. I keep my eyes fixed on him and he takes out his phone from his pocket while he eats.Phone…W
VALENTINAAgent Vitali briefly comes to inform me that he is leaving to see things through with this Red Daisy Club matter and as he warned me before, I shouldn’t even try anything stupid.I shake him off, not interested in anything he has to say to me. Not until he really comes back, raging or calm.Either way, I am doomed.He leaves my room and like a good prisoner, I come to see him off at the door which clicks shut with a beep when he steps outside.I wait and wait and wait. Doing nothing, taking deep breaths.What if he comes back calm and silent and tells me they have dealt with Red Daisy, ambushed, found drugs, destroyed the place - A stupid lie. What am I going to do then?Can I play this game for longer when I find out the Agency is just using me or should I find some way of my own?Just one shot at revenge…That’s all I have, I remind myself.If t
VALENTINA My blood chills in my veins but his reaction turns out to be different than what I expected. He lets out a low laugh, soft and deadly. His tongue darts out to wet his lips, tempting my eyes to follow his movement and I cave in. “ Interesting. ” He whispers under his breath, his breath fanning my face. “ Next time you try to test me, you must remember one thing…” He lets out, his voice an exotic caress. Unconsciously, I want to press my thighs together, but I can’t. He is keeping them parted, his body just inches away from pressing against mine - crushing and weighing me down. I take in a shaky breath, looking deep into his coal eyes. “ If I lose any more of my men to clear your stupid doubts…” A wry smile curls his lips. I can tell he is not going to say something good. He leans in, breaking all codes of professionalism like he always does. I squeeze my eyes shut, the sheer intensity of his ga
VALENTINAAgent Vitali takes the notepad from the table and looks down at it. I watch him, my chest refusing to heaving up and down for a moment.“ This is enough for now. ” He whispers to me, to himself.Then, Agent Vitali picks up his head and looks directly at me just in time I loose the breath I held back for a while.He knows I didn’t tell him everything still, but he thinks it’s enough for now. Why? I don’t know and for now, I don’t want to find out either.Just a little time, that’s all I want besides the death of Nico and destruction of the Thorn Clan.“ You can go to your room now. ” Agent Vitali takes his piercing eyes off me and tears the pages from the notepad, all the while I continue watching him.I want to look away, but I can’t. I am caught up in his eyes which are cast down and his lips that are pressed together firmly.What it might f
MATTEO~A LITTLE WHILE EARLIER…I am sitting on my bed in my own room. Darkness and silence are my companions right now. The usual thing.My eyes are fixed on the darkness clouding the wall in front of me.My mind keeps drifting off to Valentina. She is refraining from revealing everything to me. She gave me the necessary information earlier, but she kept all the good, important secrets to herself.The barbie doll thinks she can fool me and hold everything back. She thinks she is a good liar and I won’t understand what she is trying to do, but she is so very wrong about this.I know all the what, why, and how when it comes to Valentina Morgan.She wants time and reassurance and a little support.And I? I just want to know where Nico must be hiding and where he is keeping our f
VALENTINAI don’t know for how long I cried and tried to pull myself out of the effect of that nightmare, memories.I lost track of time and my brain also gave up on me, sending me into a deep slumber where memories once again came back to haunt me.I wasn’t dreaming about these memories for so long, but now I think I am starting to fall into the abyss of PTSD once more.The time when I wake up, I find myself on the bed and alone in the room. My puffy eyes search the room, recalling what had happened earlier.Inhaling deeply, I ignore the ache I feel in my head, throat and heart.I can’t believe I held him and cried like a clueless child. He could be laughing at me for all I know.‘ It’s alright. It was just a nightmare. ’ His deep voice whispers in my ears, making me gulp my saliva.He comforted me even if it felt like he didn
