It felt as if Ella's world was spinning. Everything he said to her brought goosebumps on her skin; it sent a jolt of electricity down her spine and made her heart beat uncontrollably. Her mouth suddenly became dry that she had to swallow a painful lump in her throat.
Her eyes twitched but they didn't stop looking into Francis own eyes, she licked her bottom lips lightly as her eyes glanced at his lips swiftly.
"Francis," she mumbled, still staring into his eyes. "I love you."
Just as Francis was about to kiss her, the door to his room burst open making Ella jump off her feel slightly as she looked at the door with a widened eye.
Francis frowned when he saw it was his mother that had interrupted his moment. He clenched and unclenched his fist as
Lady Liliana looked at Ella with a confused look on her face. She didn't mind what Ella had said but the fact that Ella said it with all seriousness made her wonder why."You really don't have to do that, you know?" Lady Lilian said to Ella."I want to. I feel Francis is scared, it took him a lot of time before he opened up to me. I feel he cares for you but doesn't want to show it. He could have easily killed you like he did with the rest but he has never done that no matter how harsh he speaks to you," She said.Lady Liliana smiled, "it's no worries. I knew behind his strong walls, there is that son of mine that I have always wished for within. Thanks so much," Lady Lilian said."You know, I am more glad that unlike the past Death lord, he wouldn't
Ella decided to speak to Francis before it was too late. She walked towards the door, she opened it and surprisingly she met Francis standing awkwardly with his hands raised up.Her eyes widened slightly before she cleared her throat to speak, "Hi," she smiled not knowing what to say or do."Hey," he replied awkwardly. He was still baffled about what happened earlier today."I...I..." He stuttered, an habit he wasn't used to. "I wanted to come check on you," he finally voiced out."I was going to see you too," she said and he smiled. He felt at ease that she was coming to meet him, so it meant she wasn't angry with him and even if she was, she wanted to come clear things up with him."Okay then. Shall we go?" He asked her and she nodded her head. She took a look at Amelia once more before leaving the room with Francis to his room. It was really awkward as they both walked in silence, both
Francis heaved a deep sigh, "I know. I know but..." Ella cuts him off."There is no but Francis. She is your mother and just like every mother, she's bound to care for you. You were really rude earlier and you hurt her feelings.""You know she is your mother and she gave birth to you. You should be lucky you have a mother. I do not have one, I did but I wish she wasn't dead," Ella whispered.She cupped Francis face with their hand then took in a deep breath. "You don't have to act tough to be tough should in case you do not know. The strongest ones aren't the ones do not love but the ones that loves.""You love me, don't you?" She asked and he nodded his head. "Then love your mother the same way too. She really cares for you and she deserves some resp
Ella furrowed her brows in confusion to Francis last statement. She swallowed an invincible lump in her throat before replying him. "Prepared...for what?" She stuttered, her eyes not leaving his as she asked, her chest heaving."You know if we keep on doing this, we won't be able to contain ourselves neither would be be able to keep our hands to ourself. That's why I'm telling you, once you keep taking steps like this, make sure you know what you really want," he said leaning down to peck her on her forehead."I will wait for you whenever you are ready, let's not rush things. For now let's cuddle," he said. He rolled to the other side of the bed and lied beside her.Ella heaved a sigh as she licked her dry lips wet. "I...I wouldn't mind you know?" She whispered, her heart beating rapidly as she said that."You are just saying things. You are not sure," Francis replied. He was right because she just wanted
"What is it that you want to talk about?" Lady Lilian asked Francis. Francis heaved a deep sigh before speaking. "I know I said and did some really mean things yesterday to you. I just came to say I didn't mean it although I did it," he said.Lady Lilian shook her head. It was as if the word sorry was hard for him to say as he couldn't bring himself to say those words to her.She shook her head in disappointment, "Really? That's all?" She asked him with a questioning brows as she looked at him."Of course. Is there anything else you want to hear?" He asked and she shook her head in disappointment once again before taking in a deep breath. He was really trained in the wrong way and she wished it wasn't so."You are just going to say you didn't mean it although you did it? Is that all?" She asked him and he shook his head."You can't say you didn't mean it but you did it an
A man clad in a white two pieces suit, a white tie, white shoe with the hair colour of white, stood at the balcony of his house as he looked at the kids roaming around whilst playing and laughing.He had a glass cup that contained alcohol on his hands; he had eye glasses on too. Just as he watched them, he couldn't help but wonder within him.The man who looked just like him that he had sent to attack Narlands hadn't returned for days and it baffled it.He wanted to send some of his men to go and find out what had happened but he knew taking drastic moves would only come back affecting him.He knew the Death lord wouldn't have died easily which is why he had to act first before planning. Sending his
The officials on Levine were all present in the court room including Diana who was the newly appointed commander.They were all summoned by the king for an emergency. After some minutes of silence, the king spoke."Diana who is our newly appointed commander and the woman to lead the upcoming battle has revealed a very important secret of the people of Narlands," the king said.The officials all looked at one another before looking back at the king. "My Lord, if you do not mind me asking, what is that secret?" The chief of armoury asked."The Death lord true weakness is the secret," the king said and the officials gasped. They shook they head in amazement as they smiled."I am so eager to know
Both men felt insulted and at the same time they were slightly threatened by her words. "You bitch!" The prime minister spoke and Diana scoffed."Call me that one more time and I promise to choke you here and now!" She shouted. She wasn't one of patience and if there was one thing she hated, that would be to be approached by people who she felt didn't worth her time.The Prime minster smirked. "I want to see you try bitch!" He spat out and in a nanosecond, Diana palm flew across his cheek. The sounding slap of Diana made the governor gasp in surprise."How dare you!" The governor said. Diana pointed her fingers at him, dangerously walking towards him. "Interfere and be slapped!" She spat out."Are you actually threatening me?" The Governor asked. Just
