SOPHIA “Who… who is this?” Why did he sound frightened? I rolled my eyes and my grip on the receiver tightened. He definitely knew who was speaking, it showed in the manner his voice trembled. “Don’t be silly.” I snarled. “You definitely know who this is.” “So… Sophia?” I frowned. “You’ve got that right. I’ll be coming to see you tomorrow. I need to know where we can meet, and don’t even try to deny the fact that you’re still in Dark Moon. I can smell your cowardice from miles away.” “What’s going on, Sophia? Why are you speaking to me in such a manner. I swear on my life that I have done nothing wrong other than sit right here, and…” For fuck’s sake! Why did people always have to lie when they had absolutely nothing to lose?! Didn’t he know how important it was for him to be on my good side? I was already pissed enough as it was, I didn’t need him tugging at my heartstrings any further. “Why don’t you let me be the judge of that? Where can we meet tomorrow, there is something
AUTHOR Adeline Blane Borne meant every word she had said to Sophia - a girl who had been raised as her sister. Adeline had never liked Sophia for obvious reasons, especially that goody-two-shoes attitude of hers. It was one of the many things about Sophia that sickened Adeline to her stomach. It was also one of the reasons she had decided to “help” Sophia in her fight. “It would be so much fun watching her try to beat Reed at a game he knows too well.” She thought to herself on the drive home. To her, this was all nothing but a very interesting soap opera she had been given a one time chance to direct. Who could possibly want to miss out on that? She stayed silent throughout her ride home beside her husband, Reed. Adeline could feel his eyes on her for most of the drive, but she continued to play oblivious. She knew that her meeting with Sophia had been haunting him. She knew the question that lingered at the tip of his tongue, and wondered how much it would take to push it out of
ASHER Sophia was up to something, that was for sure. I had noticed how she stayed quiet for most of the dinner. Her eyes constantly roamed around the room as if searching for something in the eyes of every single one of us. And when she called Adeline out and technically pulled her away from the room, I knew for a fact that something was wrong. I made sure to see Reed and Adeline back to the car. Sophia stood beside me as we watched them drive away while I waved with a smile. She managed to fake a smile, but wouldn't wave. Not even when I placed my free hand on her waist and tugged at the silk of her dress to make her do so. Once they were gone, she said nothing to me. She only turned away and started to walk back into the palace. I was bothered at first because I thought Adeline had said something to make her mad. However, when I noticed how she continuously tapped her fingers on the sides of her hips, I knew she wasn't pissed, she was lost in thoughts. Thoughts of what, though
SOPHIA By the time Asher was done apologizing for the awkwardness of the dinner, the food was already cold. So, we all made it our point of duty to empty the plates without saying another word, knowing how well we could get distracted by the next hot topic. Once we were done eating and the servants began to clear the table, I looked over at Adeline who kept her eyes on nothing in particular as she held onto her glass of red wine. She had been destabilized since Asher's question. I couldn't blame her. I would be worse if I had to lose any of my children at any point in time. "Adeline dear, why don't we leave the boys to do their little chit chat while we catch up in the garden?" I called out. I had not forgotten what she whispered in my ear when I arrived with Asher earlier. As a matter of fact, I had been counting seconds down to that very moment.She snapped out of her reverie and turned to look at me. She didn't appear to hear what I had said before, so I repeated my statement. A
SOPHIA Asher did not speak to me throughout the next day. I told myself it was because he was majorly busy in one meeting or another in the courtroom. When he wasn't in the palace court, he was out on one visitation or another. Gaston accompanied him on all of these visits. He was slowly getting himself back and becoming the Alpha of Dark Moon once again. I was absolutely filled with pride as I watched him dress up three times for different occasions. I held on and told myself that it would all come to light at dinner time, when Reed would fail to show up with Adeline and he would have to tell us why. Don't get me wrong, I knew how smart Reed was. He would definitely have one or two tricks up his sleeve, but he would never turn down a challenge. He would come to dinner without Adeline, lie about it, and that is where he would be caught. I would tie his string of lies around his neck until he choked, and he would be forced to say the truth. It was a perfect plan. Unlike him, I didn'
AUTHOR Reed Borne pulled into the driveway of his home at exactly 5:40am. He smiled when he saw the light that emanated from his bedroom window. He knew she would be awake by that time of the day, she always was."Some things never change, do they?" He asked himself as he shut his car door. It was impossible to deny the fact that he was nervous deep down… terrified, even. What if she didn't listen to him? He shook his head. That was impossible. He had to convince himself of that fact, and make sure to look the part as well. He and Adeline had been together for as long as he could remember. She loved him more than he loved his own self. The doors were left open, so he figured she must have returned from her morning jog. Adeline was quite the fitness enthusiast. It was one of the many things he had grown to admire about her. As he walked up the stairs that led to their bedroom, Reed kept his ears down for any form of sound. He also needed to be quiet in order to not raise any alarm.
AUTHOR Reed Borne was ready to leave the palace first thing that morning. More because he couldn't bear to smile at Asher one more time than anything else. The act he had been made to put on was everything but soothing, and it didn't help that Sophia continued to look down at him in such a condescending manner either. He would take care of them soon, he thought. Every single one of them would get to understand why he was the son of his mother. Dressed in his suit attire, he twirled his car key in his right pinky finger as he matched towards the door. He knew he had a mission to fulfil, and that was to return to the dinner table that night with Adeline's arm strapped in his. And she wasn't going to make it easy for him, not at all. But it would teach the nosy young queen to stick her nose where it mattered. Her days were numbered after all. Reed could only smile to himself at the thought. He paused in the middle of the large reception hall and looked around. Up at the stairs that
Hi guys, good morning from my side of the world! It's your favorite author again (permit me to be this bold, lol.) I was going to just post the next chapter and move on, but I knew it wouldn't be fair to you guys who have waited so long (5 days) for me. I had such huge plans for this month, and was ready and pumped to update 3 chapters daily, I kid you not. Only to be hit with an illness that cost me 2 impromptu tests and 5 update days. Also, I walked out of a one year relationship I thought was going to last forever, because apparently, love doesn't fix everything. Nevertheless, I am slowly getting back on my feet now, and I wanted to thank you guys for your support and the kind comments so far. Please, this author would really appreciate if you sneak my book into the next discussion you're having with your friends and family, or the next post you want to make. It'll mean a lot to me. Also, what do we think of the book so far? Honest thoughts please? Remember to be kind to
SOPHIA By the time Asher returned to the room, I made sure to take my shower and was now seated on my side of the bed, waiting for him to return. Once he stepped into the room, both of his hands moved to the buttons of his shirt as he walked to the vanity mirror that adorned a distal corner of our room. He didn't say any words to me. He didn't even bother to look at me twice even though I was dressed in a lilac pair of lingerie, patiently waiting for him - my king - to return. Asher settled on the stool in front of the vanity table and undressed himself bit by bit. He only jumped into bed when he was on nothing but his black vest and matching black boxer briefs. My eyes danced to the clock at sat on the wall beside the huge twin doors of our room. Past 8pm. His meeting with Reed continued two more hours after I had left. Once he climbed into bed beside me, I flashed him a smile and moved slowly towards him. I lowered my lips to his face and pressed a soft kiss on both his cheeks.
