CIARAI didn't understand what was happening but I screamed on top of my voice. I could literally see a hyena running towards and so I took off as well but I was no match for its speed. I began calling Rian's name again as I ran through the forest. I cried on turning back to see that the animal was already closing in on me. "Rian!" I screamed like a banshee. The fact that I was naked and tree branches were whiping my bare skin wasn't even part of my worries at that moment. I just didn't understand why Rian would pull something like this. I turned around once more just in time to see the hyena jumping on my face with its mouth and sharp teeth in bold display, ready to feast. I shut my eyes tight, screamed and cried for my life. I was still screaming and crying for almost a minute when I realized that I should have been hyena food already but instead, it didn't feel like I was in the forest anymore. And so I decided to open my eyes and there was Rian, lying next to me like before. I lo
RIAN"I can not believe you turned that guy into a frog." Those were the first words Ciara said when she opened her eyes and caught me red handed, watching her sleep. I couldn't really recall how long I'd been awake for but I'd had my eyes fixed on the princess lying next to me ever since I'd opened them. And to be honest, the last thing I wanted was to be reminded of the fool that thought he could just rock any girl he felt like without caring who she belonged to. And yes, Ciara belonged to me. "He's far more good looking as a frog anyway. He should be thanking me," I replied. And it was true. That was one good looking frog I'd turned him into, before that, he was a disgrace to humanity. After the guy was seen hopping around, the party was pretty much over so Ciara and I just came back right here, where we'd been before the party. She was still very high so she just crashed on my bed without thinking it through. I wasn't going to complain, I wouldn't be sleeping alone for a change.
CIARA "You say what?" Rian looked stunned by what I'd said. His expression was almost very funny to me. But I was being very serious. I wanted to find true love. The sex with Rian was more than amazing but all the while I'd been thinking of what it would have been like to be doing it with someone that I was in love with. It wasn't just about the sex for me. It was passion and intimacy. I craved that passion and intimacy. I wanted to have sex with someone that I actually loved and who felt the same way about me. To Rian this was all just a game. And to me, this was all just to get out of here and live my life. Besides, it would be nice to travel the world with the love of my life. It would be a dream come true so I didn't understand why Rian looked like I'd just asked for the most absurd thing ever. Everyone wished for true love all the time so it wasn't like it was an unusual thing to wish for. I chuckled at the expression on his face. "What? I wish for true love. Why do you look so
RIANCiara’s second wish had brought Yuri to my home. The thought kept disturbing my mind every time I tried to think about anything apart from that, my mind automatically returned back to those chain of thoughts. Now that I was alone, my mind trailed and my facial expressions went wild with fury. There was nothing I could do. Yuri was a fairy just like me even though he obviously wasn’t as strong as I was that did nothing to avert the threat or the feeling tugging at my chest.Immediately after the breakfast we had together, I had given Ciara a pendant and I made her promise not to take it off for any reason whatsoever. She had been hesitant at first but she saw how serious I was and had let me put it around her neck. The contact my hands had made with her flesh at that moment was enough to drive me to madness early. The pendant was a charm that was strong enough to prevent Yuri from reading her thoughts. It was a kind of filter. I didn’t want him to know the reason he was there was
CIARA“Would you go on a date with me Cherie?”Those words kept playing on repeat in my head with Yuri’s sweet soft voice. I was still smiling just as I had been smiling when he had said those words. He had been waiting for my response and I had nodded my confirmation to him. There was but one problem now. How I was going to tell Rian to allow us go on our date.I stood at the door to his room practicing speech upon speech trying to come up with a bulletproof formula that would counter every Rian could say or think about saying. The more I thought about it, the more I saw how hopeless it was to try and reason with Rian. But still I had to try.The door swung open revealing Rian on a seat watching me. It was obvious he had been waiting for me. I walked in impervious to the stabs from the glare of his green eyes. He watched me with his cocky side smirk. I felt like punching his face till his smirk literally cracked like a fractured china.“I know why you’re here, princess. My answer is
RIANHer breath caught in her throat as she saw me come into the room. I smirked at her as I said, “You’ve been a bad girl, princess. A very bad girl.” She looked at me with hate in her eyes. She wanted me to see the intensity of it. She wanted me to feel it and I did as the look she gave me tore at my heart but my expression didn’t show how I felt. She could hate me if she wanted to. I had gotten used to being hated and rejected a long time ago.“You’re the most despicable creature I’ve ever seen.” She spat at me meaning every word of it. She looked like she wouldn’t hesitate to run a ragged blade through my guts if she had it in her hands.“You look irresistible when you’re angry.” I teased walking closer to her. She moved away like there was an invisible magnetic field between us. My smirk deepened as her frown turned to a savage look. I knew it would be dangerous getting close to her in this state but I didn’t care. My whole being burned badly for her. I ached for her and control
CIARARian’s words tore at me even as the sound of the door closing broke the last piece of hope I had of freedom. I stood there unable to move or speak. I couldn’t think of anything. What had just happened had me completely immobilized and all I could do was to curse at him in my head. I killed him over and over up to a million times making sure he begged for his life in every one of my imagination.I stayed there for what felt like eternity. Rian came to drop a tray of food for me. He was lucky he was fast before the tray was able to strike him behind his mighty head. I stomped on the food till my strength and a third of my frustration drained.Hours turned to days and days turned to what I could only assume was weeks. At first didn’t believe what Rian had said initially about fabricating the love between Yuri and I using magic but now I couldn’t deny the possibility of it being true. If Yuri was truly in love with me then he would have come already to rescue me but there was no Yur
CIARAI could still hear his words. Rian’s words haunted my sleep every night since I got back to the palace. My father had been worried about me since I would wake up in the dead of the night screaming and crying. He had called the Royal doctor to check me and Dr. Jameson had confirm there was nothing wrong with me. He explained that I had gone through something extremely traumatic and what was happening was my body’s way of reaction to those experiences.My mother had explained to me how they had gotten the service of Yuri to help then track me. Rian had let Yuri go his way after snapping off the spell he had placed on the fairy. Yuri was furious being used like that but there was nothing he could do to Rian as the rules governing fairies wouldn’t let him. When my father, the king brought Yuri to his service, he got permission from the fairy counsel allowing Yuri the permission to get me from Rian by any means necessary that was how Yuri was able to kill Rian.I didn’t believe Rian
