He took her to his room and laid her on his bed. She fell asleep out of exhaustion and stress.
Alexander sat beside her, observing her. Her tear-stained face, disheveled hair, dark circles under eyes were a clear indication that she was in pain inside.
His heart painfully clenched at the thought of when she asked him to kill her. Living was way too painful for her.
I know I am selfish, but I am in love. I can do everything for you; even die for you but I am not letting you go. I corrupted you and I will heal you. I have snatched your life but I will give everything back to you.
He took her hand and kissed her knuckles and then kissed her forehead. Just a mere touch of her smooth skin against his lip made him hungrier, wanting for more but he controlled himself.
He quickly made leave from there. He entered the bathroom, took a shower and came out.
Third Person's POV:She looked at him but didn't say anything. She weakly shook her head in negative and looked at another direction from Alexander. He cupped her face and softly made her look at him. "What's the matter? Tell me, angel." He told her. "Nothing at all. I am happy, really." She said, trying to smile but couldn't. Her smile didn't reach her eyes, she failed utterly. "I am happy." She whispered, a lone tear slipped from her eyes. Then it hit him that something was definitely wrong with her. He crinkled his eyebrows. He felt puzzled, why she was crying. Wasn't she a bit happy?! He wondered. "What's wrong, baby? Why are you crying then?" He softly asked, cupping her face, rubbing her shoulder. The sobs she was holding back, she burst into them. "Because, I miss him so much, badly. It hurts so much
Sapphire's POV:I felt so bored. I had nothing particular to do. I just got up, ate foods, pooped and slept and again repeated the damn process. I meant now it's too much. I was a girl who just turned 21; I wanted to do many things. Not just to sit and eat while caged in a mansion. Maids also didn't talk to me very much without necessity. Sometimes I felt suffocated, always alone. I got up and reached downstairs to have my breakfast. Alexander was gone early. He didn't even tell me yesterday. He was a selfish man. Really a selfish man. He wanted to have me all to himself, isolating me from the world. Couldn't he understand that I too felt bad, I too felt alone? Or God, is it you who always want to me stay alone? I wanted to talk to somebody. I had my breakfast and decided to peep inside the kitchen.
"Can't we stay here overnight? It's so beautiful." I whined Alexander chuckled. "If you really like this place, we can come here again. But not tonight. We don't have food or clothes." He told me. Pouting I returned with him. I didn't bother him anymore. He was busy with the laptop doing his works. I went to Twity and played with him. He was such a good dog. If I patted him, he would lick my hand. The next day, Alexander told me that someone important to me would come. He didn't say much and went to work quickly kissing me. I asked him but he just winked. I was reading a book about bacteria in the library when a maid came and told me that I had a guest. I went to the living room to see who could be this important guest. I didn't have any idea at all. I saw a girl was observing the rare wall paintings turning her back. <
He was handsome in a blue suit but not as much as Alexander. "I am not alone here. My date is waiting for me. Excuse me then." I said awkwardly; didn't want to initiate any conversation. "You are in a hurry. He may wait a bit. How about we get to know each other? I am Ivan Morisson by the way." He suddenly pulled my wrist. Awkward man! "I am Sapphire Atkinson." I flatly said. I heard the announcement for dance was made and soon couples would be pairing up for the dance. "Let me have the pleasure to dance with you for once." He said pulling me towards the dance floor. "Mr. Morisson! I don't think it's a good idea. My date is waiting for me and I want to dance with him. Now excuse me." I dismissed him and about to walk that's when he again pulled me but harshly this time. I gasped in surprise. "I wasn't asking." His voice seemed commanding. "J
Sapphire's POV:I woke up and my head was pounding. With a groggy feeling, I opened my eyes and was welcome by the sunlight. I was covered by a blanket and was wearing a big white shirt and my black lacey underwear. I must be really drunk yesterday night. Whoever changed my dress! Alexander gave the maids the night off. And why the hell am I in his shirt?! Don't tell me that yesterday I had done it with him. I quickly touched between my legs over my panty. No, nothing was wrong. I wasn't sore or in pain. Then why the hell I am in his shirt?! I was tensed and embarrassed. I covered my body with the blanket more tightly and buried my face in my knees, thinking deep. "Nothing happened yesterday night." A deep sexy voice spoke up. I jumped in shock. It was Alexander. <
Third person's POV:Sapphire was extremely happy. The smile wasn't moving from her lips. She called Bella and gave her the good news. She told her to come the next day and had Alexander send a car to pick her up. The next day, Bella came and Sapphire took her to her room. "So in which University are you going to apply?" Bella asked her. "I wanted to try Harvard but I think that won't happen as I have to stay here. Alexander won't let me go anywhere away." Sapphire sighed. "Wherever you go, it doesn't matter. A diamond sparkles everywhere." Bella commented. Sapphire rolled her eyes at her. "Sapphire let's go shopping together someday. We will have so much fun. It has been many days." Bella added excitedly. Sapphire couldn't say that every time she needed to ask Alexander before she does anything. She suddenly felt very angry. Her freedom had b
Six months later:Sapphire's classes for her first semester started and she was really busy with her study. She would have breakfast with Alexander and go to her university. She would come home and would start studying soon after resting a bit. She would come sometimes late home if she had practical lab classes. She was recognized as a good student by teachers. Her academic performance was good. There were some boys who even asked her out. She politely declined them. Thinking what would be Alexander's reaction, she wondered. He would beat them up or threaten badly. She made some friends- Tina, Chen, Clayton, Robert, Kim, Betty. As she was the brightest student, everyone liked her. Once, Betty asked Sapphire to help her with Virology assignment and she did. From then their friendship became stronger. The bodyguards waited outside as they weren't allowed to enter the campus with arms. It was a mat
Sapphire's POV:Today was my last theoretical exam of this semester. I was really tired of studying for this semester. I reached the university in time and attended the exam in time. Exam went good as usual; I actually got nervous during exam. Coming out of the exam hall, I quickly got out the campus gate. I got into car and went to Alexander's mansion. Actually I was so tired and exhausted, that I only wanted to sleep and rest. I got freshen up and had a something light. After that I threw my exhausted body on the bed to get sleep. I told the maids not to call me, let me sleep till I don't wake up. I slept wrapping my body with the soft blanket and was driven into the dreamland. "Angel.""Angel, get up.""Mm. No. Lemme sleep." I mumbled in my sleep. "Angel, get up." I got up hearing someone calling me. <
