A tall and a dark young man stepped out of an Audi R8. He straightened his black coat as his mouth pressed in a thin line of irresolution.
His eyes intriguingly stared at the tower in front as he sighed nervously. He'd never thought he'd come here to visit her. But here he was. After pocketing his iPhone he moved inside of the tower slowly.
The night was slow and silent. Yet the moon in the sky shone bright. One could clearly see the spots it has amidst the dancing black clouds. He pressed the button of '9th floor' and stood silently against the mirror behind him looking at the small screen above the elevator doors that screened the number of floors he crossed by.
The doors unlatched with a ding, he bit his lower lip exiting the same. His emotionless peepers gazed at the door of the flat located in the corner, 'Flat no. 903' with a sigh.
After a moment of blank thinking, he finally pressed the bell button. Almost after five minutes, he sensed the lock from within getting unlocked and there, and a gorgeous lady stepped out.
A mere look of her face raised his eyebrows in amusement. His heart skipped a beat.
"Uhh, Raven! You are here at this time, anything serious?" She was Kiara, a delicate lady with big fluttering eyelashes.
She had her hair pulled up in a bun. With a sleepy yawn she drew her loose jacket she wore close to her chest. She couldn't stand his dark eyes checking her petite body when she was only wearing a loose knee length night dress with no brasserie.
"Umm yeah, I... I mean no. It is not serious." He diverted his pupils from her body.
He can't let his mind lose his patience now or else, they'd end up in her bed for a good time. He mused as he looked away in order to concentrate further. It would not lead to good consequences either if he ever dared doing that with her.
Raven ran a hand through his hair. He could not find words to express the reason why he was standing at her doorstep at this hour of night. It was already known by her but still something made their encounter awkward. So, simply removing some papers from his jacket he forwarded them to her.
Her eyes grew wider looking at the paper type, and she shockingly blurted out, "We didn't plan on getting married for real. It was supposed to be a fake marriage, wasn't it? "
It made him sigh whilst rolling his eyes lazily. Raven unfolded the papers and showed her the title that read, 'Marriage contract'.
"Yes, we don't marry for real. This is just a simple contract between you and I agreeing on the terms that we stay together in my house during the time of the contract and of course, stay like a married couple." She nodded her head in acknowledgement yet a part of her heart skipped when he called THEM a married couple.
They stood silently while she went through the clauses of the contract hastily. However she could hardly focus on reading when his dark scrutiny checked her out in a tranquil conscious environment. He gave her goosebumps. He made something throb between her legs!
"So I'll take your leave. Just give me a call after you're done signing them." He sucked in a breath with a tired smile as he scratched his nape.
"Um, I hope you know about our morning meeting!" He raised an eyebrow.
She quickly nodded in a yes, "I'll be there in time."
"Good. Will be waiting for you." He awkwardly smiled. "Then… I will leave you alone for now. Good night."
She nodded in a yes as she watched him venture back to the elevator. The doors unlatched and he stepped inside gracefully. His broad back dropped her jaw at the view.
Once he was inside and the doors were just going to get closed, her heart melted looking at his features. The way he spun around, played his fingers on the buttons of the pad before leaning back on the mirror, everything about him shuddered her. He was no less than God Apollo.
"Bye!" Kiara watched his mouth softly whisper while waving at her, a small smile plastered on his slightly dry lips.
As the doors closed and her sight of him was cut short, she slumped back on the frame of her apartment's door.
"He's as charming as he was in college." She dreamily muttered.
"But he's going to break you!" Her heart warned, stiffening her back.
Her eyes danced with some memories from the past. Then she forced her lips in a bright grin of contentment as she stated, "I don't care, I'm going to love him anyway. I always did."
CHAPTER 1…Meet Kiara DiazThere was the pen held in between her index finger and thumb, she laid on her tummy and legs bent from the knees and raised up in the air, hairs still in a bun and the jacket she wore earlier was removed and now rested on the couch nearby, her eyes incredulously, with a jumping heart stared at the papers. She smiled sheepishly like an idiot reading the first few lines again and again that read, ‘Kiara Diaz an independent woman, living in so and so place agrees to marry Raven Carter for the span of one year.If needed the period of contract shall be renewed further after the date expires and if it requires.’She rolled over on her back and raised the papers up in the air and smiled yet again reminiscing the moments when she met him in life. The encounters were small but special, hurting but hot, lively but painful. She closed her eyes pulling t
CHAPTER 3… Her fear, Girard Carter She tried her best to get out of Raven’s hold. There was sweat running down her forehead speaking of her anxiety. Kiara banged her fist on his hard chest giving him hard time in controlling her. “Ehhh… Kiara, calm down, he will not hurt you. He is changed now.”… He spoke assuring near her ear rubbing her back. There was no way to calm her nerves down. “I want to go, let me go Raven.”… She said sternly yet difficultly between her heavy breaths. The dark pair of black eyes that was staring her keenly with a chaste smile was intrigued and reading her behavior. She’s not changed at all. Three years but still thebehavior, nervousness, fears… everything was just the same as it was in the old times. “I don’t trust him, nor do you. Now let me go.”… She glared him, just being on the verge of crying. The advocate who was suppo

CHAPTER 5"Don't look at me like that Diaz… Ahh correction… I mean Carter!"… Girard aforementioned whilst settling in the front seat beside the driver. He faked a glare towards Kiara by sitting slightly crossed such that his back was resting against the door. He trailed his tongue round the circumference of his teeth staring Kiara continuously.The situation was funny yet very interesting! There was fear, a slight attitude of being in power by becoming Mrs. Carter (his wife) as well as her confident was modified nevertheless, still there was panic and insecurity in her eyes. "Don't look at him."… Raven made her hide her face in his neck pulling her close. His one hand was around her shoulders pulling her in his safe protection while the other one covering her eyes such that she could avoid seeing his face. Yet, she peeped through the gap between his fingers at his brother's face that was craned
CHAPTER 6Kiara swigged her saliva gazing at the guy in her front, her expressions were as if she was seeing the world’s worst guy, “What are you doing here in this dark night standing alone on the gate?”… He flirtatiously asked trying to touch her bare shoulder. Left eye as well as ear pierced with metal ring, he ruffled his hairs those seemed to be wet. He was Payton, college’s bad boy!Kiara rolled her eyes moving away from him with clenched jaw, her eyes were red already, having waited till so long she did not know what to do. “Go to hell Payton. Fuck you!”… She showed him her middle finger with a cunning smile making the looks on his face to change from smirking to heck serious.This girl was something to play with, something to taste slowly with ecstasy. Her tongue was sharper than a butcher’s knife. She could kill anyone with her killer be
CHAPTER 7Hurt again!Kiara’s point of view…He opened the door for me. His brother Girard swiftly exited the car and entered in the house leaving us alone. I was happy and felt light hearted to see him not near us any more. His presence was making it difficult for me to breathe. He did not seem the old Girard any more yet his facial expressions were the same. It refreshed my old memories. That was haunting!I lightly breathed a sigh feeling my body relaxing in comfort at his departure. I was so much lost in myself that I totally forgot Raven has been standing there with an open door asking for me to get out, but his voice could not reach me, I was too into my thoughts. When I nervously gaped his face that was slightly getting into the mode of annoyance, he just looked away.This was his way to ignore his frustration toward me.As
CHAPTER 8I was in the room alone. Afternoon’s blazing sun was overhead, Raven has got a call and left for some important meeting immediately. I attempted to ask him what was the matter notwithstanding he only said, “I will tell you everything once I am back, trust me. There are so many things I want to discuss with you.” And left not before giving me a feathery kisson my neck.And guess what, I was alone in the entire bungalow with Girard. I begged him to not go, I was sure his brother would do something to me once Raven will leave. And that was why I locked the door, to be on the safer side I placed a table across the same to take every possible measure to keep him away from me.As for now, I was on the bed in my gown with folded legs, I have had curled my hairs into a bun and washed my face. Wearing make up has always been a concern for me. It bothers me, what if acne and rashes appears on my face if I keep
CHAPTER 9Kiara point of view….My throat went dry, the way his eyes narrowed and glared me, I was almost on the verge of passing out. He is handsome, six pack abs, challenging personality but the thing that makes everyone hate him is his nature. That bully nature. Even today when the old friends or old classmates accidentally stumble by and see him, they sweat only by getting a glimpse of his face.The time really had flown by but his old self still holds that dread that can kill anyone!“I…. I” I fumbled.He slightly bobbed his head allowing me to go further unfortunately, I did not know where to start from. His eyes were enough for me to start sweating!Honestly I was never courageous enough to open my mouth in front of him. He threatened me like the monster of any horror movie with disgusting teeth, long nails and lips
