“Need I ask what my beauty is doing?” Nikolay asked wrapping his arms around me from the back. He laid his chin on my shoulder as I was washing the dishes after the two of us had eaten. I knew that there were maids coming to fix everything, but I couldn’t let the ladies do everything when I was just simply sitting in my husband’s arms.
“Washing the dishes” I answered stating the obvious. I could practically see my husband rolling his eyes at me and I laughed turning my face to kiss his cheeks. He smiled, his beautiful dimple showing as I put the glass to dry before turning around in my husband’s arms, I was wearing shorts and his black shirt while he wore grey sweat pants and a white shirt.
“And may I know why you’re not in my arms?” Nikolay teased and I laughed wrapping my arms around his neck as he tightened his around my waist. The two of us looking one another in the eye, our bodies relaxed a
Nikolay:“Good morning, beautiful” I smiled at my wife who was stirring in my arms as I ran my fingers over her bare back from under her shirt. Her body pressed against mine as she laid on top of me, the two of us were completely drained by the time we were done with the beach, having showered. She wore my shirt and I put on boxers and the two of us ended falling asleep.“Morning” Kiara said sleepily. She was still snuggled in my arms and didn’t feel like waking up, but I knew that we had to wake up if we were to catch the surprise I had prepared for her. I had made sure to fix everything for this trip, I wanted her to be happy, I wanted to show her how grateful I was for her being with me, for her loving me, for staying loyal to me despite everything that turned against us at times. Despite ME not being loyal to her when we first got married. I knew that I hurt her doing what I did, but she never left. Not even when she had the chance to
Kiara:“Mummy!” Lia smiled running toward me. I smiled and leaned down to hug my daughter who jumped in my arms with both happiness and excitement, I kissed her cheeks before pulling away for her to greet her father. Maddie who had Daniel in her arms walked toward me and I hugged her though I was careful not to hurt my son who instantly perked up upon seeing me letting out little giggles which made me smile. His hand went to my hair strand and I smiled as he pulled it making me laugh.I smiled when Nikolay who was carrying Lia in his arms leaned in to Daniel and kissed his forehead earning a giggle from our baby which made both me and Nikolay smile. My husband kissed my temple and the two of us stared at our kids with loving eyes before we heard slow clapping which broke the moment. Maddie tensed and Vladimir who was standing with his son, Xavier, in his arms glared at the woman who simply raised an eyebrow at us.“You know, a decent woman woul
Nikolay:“Where is she?” Sebastian asked before entering the house. Luckily, I opened the door for him and walked out of the house to tell him Kiara’s plan.“You will keep it down” I said pushing him outside on the front porch, Kiara wants him to stay as calm as he would be. All of us would, we wouldn’t react nor would we comment on this. However, a certain father would be taking matters into hand and I had a feeling that he wouldn’t be as lenient or understanding toward the woman.“Have you gone mad?” Sebastian asked angrily and I shook my head at him. Handing him my phone, I showed him Kiara’s plan, which she had texted me when she went to the room to get Xavier, Lia, and Daniel. The kids didn’t like their grandmother, for known reasons, but Lia played along being polite as Kiara encouraged her to do so. I knew that she must’ve promised buying her something or taking her to the park if she
Kiara: “His fucking nerve” Nikolay snapped once Ian and mum were out of the house. I myself couldn’t understand where he got the courage to say what he did or to behave the way he did. Mother beloved was proud of having a husband to stand up to us, knowing that father was never able to match to Nikolay. Ian was like some dream come true to her after everything she believes she’s been through with us. Though she knew that she would have been through worse had her parents gotten their hands on her, and knowing that this was last resolve, I knew that it was the only thing that we could do. The woman HAD to go home to her mum and father. “Calm down, Nik. The kids are inside and they’re already frightened after what they saw” I said looking at my husband who sighed but nodded. I knew that Ian said what he did to annoy us, thinking that he would make us fear him in thinking that he was something. But as far as I knew, the man had no loyal men under him, should he try to ac
Nikolay:“What are you going to do, boss?” Vladimir asked walking inside the office behind me. I shook my head not knowing what to answer him, one part of me wanted both dead, but another part if me kept reminding me that I promised my wife to keep her mother safe. Plus not wanting the woman to suffer the pain of losing another parent when she wasn’t even over everything her father did before he was killed.“I don’t know, Vladimir. I’m put in a stupid maze where things are just too messed up. One side has my beauty who is doing everything to keep us safe, neglecting her heart or what she was feeling…” I was well aware that Kiara was acting using her mind, ignoring her emotions. I could see it in her eyes, the pain she felt, her random breakdowns that she would sometimes have when she was alone in the bedroom. Having walked in on her a few times to hear her trying to quiet her sobs down, I couldn’t handle seeing her
Kiara:“Do you want to tell me what happened with Richard that had you make a choice like having us kill your mom?” Nikolay asked softly. I was laying on his chest, both our bodies naked as he ran his fingers through my hair. The two of us had just calmed down from our climaxes, I thought that it would distract me, but it didn’t. My mind was still going wild.“Nik…”“It would help with getting it off your chest princess” Nikolay whispered stopping me and I nodded knowing that he was right. I just couldn’t find the proper words to describe what I saw, or more specifically, I didn’t want to think of the right words to admit that we should have followed the mafia rules.Flashback:“We’re following that car” I said looking at Richard who frowned in confusion. Him and I had gone to a café, though I was surprised when I saw mum and Ian speaking to a m
Nikolay:I looked at my wife as if she’s grown a second head as she told me what she planned but she shook her head at me, stopping me from saying the words she knew I’d say.“Nikolay, you will be taking care of things out here, I’ll be doing my job in there” Kiara said calmly, I knew that she was fighting herself not to decide against what she said under my gaze. The woman knew that I would rather die than put her in danger and here she was suggesting that SHE enter the games again? The woman was definitely drunk, I just didn’t know it.“You’re kidding right?” I asked wide eyed. Her eyes met mine and I couldn’t miss the way she flinched fearing the worst, not that she had anything to fear. But I knew that she didn’t want to end up with us fighting, and in all honesty, nor did I. I didn’t want to have an unnecessary argument with her right now, especially when I knew that she was not in her
Kiara:“So, you two plan on just leaving them be until when?” Richard asked Nikolay wide eyed. The man was going mental as he heard what we were telling him, clearly not agreeing with anything we planned but even I knew that deep down, he knew that we were right.“We don’t plan on leaving them be, Richard. But I can’t risk Kiara entering the games. You of all people should know that all the candidates lost their lives in the first games or went crazy in the newer versions. They are turning people into easily triggered weapons” Nikolay said looking Richard in the eye. It was the next morning when Nikolay and I managed to get out of bed, and it was because Lia walked inside the room wanting to get in and wake us up.The two of us just told everyone of what Richard and I saw, and let me say that Richard wasn’t very happy when he learned that we wouldn’t be putting mum and Ian in place the second we laid eyes on them,
