One month later, Third Person's POV:
Sapphire is trying to live her life normally. It's true finally she was able to sleep without fear. When she thought that her past tormentor was no more, she breathed in relief every time.
A different, a strange type of relief washed over her mind. But emptiness was also there, each time took her over.
Michael's one sentence still rang inside her ear.
Your mother should care for you. She was a bitch to you in the first place. I got an advantage.
Every time this rang inside her ear, tears stung her eyes. Michael was a vile, despicable person but what he said was true after all.
Sapphire was grateful to Alexander that he killed Michael. She was also shocked that a mafia war was about to happen just to take Alexander Rodriguez down, but Alexander didn't inform anything to her so that she didn't worry about that, he kept everything to himself an
Third Person's POV:"Mom, I am Sapphire." The woman's frown deepened but as she comprehended what the girl said, her eyes widened and mouth hung open. "Y-you a-are Sapphire!" She was shocked. "Mom, it has been many years. How are you? Did you ever remember me once in those years?" Sapphire asked, her voice was cracking slowly. She knew very well what would be her answer. But the daughter inside her who never got an ounce of motherly affection couldn't help asking this stupid question. The woman didn't say anything, she opened her mouth to say something but nothing came out. She closed her mouth again and looked another direction. Sapphire wasn't disappointed much, but still, tears were streaming from her eyes. It's okay, Sapphire. She was once ready to sell me, her own daughter. This is not something unexpected from her. It's okay. She thought.
Third person's POV:Alexander hugged her tightly as Sapphire cried hard, holding onto him. He didn't understand why she was crying so hard, words even came unclear out of her mouth. He decided to let her cry and become light hearted. Who could put her Angel through such agony that she couldn't bear anymore? He couldn't tolerate her little pain. Whoever the person behind her tears, he wouldn't spare him/her. He would tear the person into tiny bloody pieces. No one could get away after hurting his angel. She was almost drained crying for so long. Alexander patted her head and cooed her ear soothingly. Finally, she stopped crying. "Angel, what happened? Why are you crying?" He gently asked. Sapphire held his right arm with both of her hands tightly but stayed silent. Her lips quivered. "You know angel that you can tell me anyth
Sapphire told Alexander the whole matter about my mother; she found her and the next day got to know that she died. Others might call her heartless but she couldn't make up her mind to go and be a part of her funeral. Actually, the damage inside her was too deep, too severe. Alexander didn't ask her anything or tell her to go there, for which she was grateful. After this incident, Sapphire was feeling lonely and most of the time, she stayed home with a sad, dejected face. Alexander could understand what was going inside her. So, he called her mother and father in his mansion to stay some days here, so that Sapphire could spend some time with his mother. Both Alexander and his father were ruthless mafias, but his mother was a kind and gentle woman. She loved Sapphire as her own child and tried to cheer her up. Sapphire was passing her days feeling downcast, upset and lonely. Alexander's mother, Lily also noticed
Alexander's POV:I turned behind hearing Sapphire's loud scream. She came before me and gave me a hard push; I literally stumbled in the left side. Before I could understand anything, a bullet hit her body and she fell on the floor. I never heard the gunshot; I saw a Russian was targeting me. He was pointing a silencer gun at me. I shot him immediately and my eyes darted on Sapphire. She took the bullet to save me. "Angel! Angel!" I screamed, patting her cheeks. "A-Alexander-r, I love you-u. P-please d-don't f-forget m-me a-after my d-death." She couldn't talk clearly; she was feeling difficulty to breathe. She shakily tried to stretch up her hand to touch me but couldn't either. Her hand fell on the side limply. Her eyes were droopy. "D-don't close your eyes, Sapphire. Don't you dare close your eyes on me! Stay with me!" I
Third Person's POV:Three and a half years later, Today, Alexander was sitting proudly, clapping his hands looking at the stage. Sapphire was receiving a gold medal for her outstanding academic performance. Today she was graduating from the university and it was her graduation ceremony. A bright smile was plastered on her angelic face. She gracefully walked to the stage and gave her speech. Everyone present there clapped their hands and cheered for her. She was an icon to the students, a great learner to the teachers. Today, she stepped one step ahead in the way to reach her dream to be a scientist. Sapphire descended from the stage and hugged Alexander. "Alexanderrrrrrr!" She exclaimed in joy. "You made it, angel. I am so proud of you."Alexander's parents, Devon, Lily also came to double her happiness of the great achievement.
Third Person's POV:"Huuuuuh. I k-knew it. I knew it. Now that I am fat, you don't love me anymore." Sapphire cried in the bed. Tonight, Sapphire took initiative to have sex. She wore a flimsy almost transparent night gown and came to the bed. Straddling Alexander, she kissed him with urgent need. She was crying because Alexander didn't have sex with her frequently nowadays. He was afraid that he might hurt her and their child. Because of her pregnancy hormones, she was overly emotional and horny. It never happened before but after pregnancy, she often initiated their sex. "Huhuhuuhu." She sniffed burying her face on her palms. Alexander was used to her mood swings and tantrums lately. She passed her first trimester and was five months pregnant already. Her belly grew big and it showed. Alexander sighed and turned to her. "A
Seven years later, "Mom, I have drawn this." Alice, Sapphire's seven years old daughter showed her the picture she painted. "Wow, honey, it's beautiful." Sapphire complimented. "Baby, have you completed your home task yet?" She asked. "Yes, mom. Mom, you know I have obtained 100% in my class test. See." Alice showed her the test report. "Wow, darling. It's incredible. Let mama give you a kiss." Sapphire leaned carefully and kissed Alice's both cheeks. She was pregnant of four months. Alice giggled when Sapphire tickled her. "Oh, mommy, it tickles." She laughed. "Mom, you know, I told my friends about you that you are a scientis. They all said that you are so cool." Alice announced in a proud voice. Sapphire couldn't help laughing. She couldn't pronounce scientist. So she spelled it as 'scientis'. "What is a scientist, baby?
