I watched their surprised faces, patiently waiting for one of them to speak, “Stopping him is only half the job.” But it was a deep rumbling, appealing voice that my ears heard. I gulped down the yoghurt in my mouth, trying not to shiver pleasurably under the deep voice as I fought the urge to look behind me. I wanted to lock my eyes with that unique colour, but they would pull me into its depths, were the green glints hid.
I cleared my throat taking another spoonful, “What more?” I asked.
“Don’t talk with your mouth full.” Alec scolded me, a deep scowl in place. I rolled my eyes at him, if only he knew the desires that Tristan’s voice alone brought me.. Not that I would tell him! I heard Tristan’s feet shifting, stepping closer and closer towards me from behind, and with each step my heart seemed to have raced twice the speed, rushing the blood through my veins.
I almost snapped my eyes closed as
Without another word, he ripped his gaze from me and left the kitchen, “I guess I annoyed Toothless off,” I mumbled, watching his figure drift into the distance. I silently hoped for him to look back at me, a hope that dreaded me. I was supposed to use him for information against Venturi, but I’m finding myself drawn into his presence and wanting more of him with every second that has passed. Every time I built my walls, it only took those damn sparks to make them come crumbling down like pieces of clay.“You like him.” Alec’s voice tore me away from the door he passed minutes ago.I blinked, rapidly, clearing my throat as I saw thesoft smile he played, “What? No!” I spattered out, I fought the urge to facepalm myself.“Of course, she doesn’t,” Austin was quick to join in, sounding very confident in himself, “Because lovely Jisoo here, is going to fall for me.” He winked, t
He stood there with a few papers in his hand as he watched me with a deep frown. I felt myself gulping under the intensity of his eyes, even from standing half away across the room. They stood out alarmingly against his dark hair, impossible to miss.“Can I help you with anything?” He asked, tossing the papers onto the table. My eyes wandered the length of his large office. The dominating black colour is what I noticed first. Black with gold embedded around, a mix of modern and vintage. The black wooden boards gleamed, sparkling against the hues if sunlight that poured into the room. Plain and cold, very much like him. But I couldn't help but remember the same colours coated him, when he was transformed into a dragon. The creature'sdominating colour was black, with the brighter running along the edges, like gold hidden within black rocks.I cleared my throat, slightly grateful for the formal tone he had used on me, “I was hoping to help with the
Finding myself in the dark-coloured room again, I sighed, feeling my wound throbbing with a strange numbing sensation. It made me almost regret not listening to Tristan.I groaned, sitting on the edge of the bed, feeling utterly worn down.Collapsing myself onto the soft mattress, I looked up at the ceiling allowing myself to think.It was harder than I thought, gettingthrough to this man. He wouldn't budge. It was going to take much more time than I had anticipated. It wasn't just the Venturi I needed to stop, but Jackson too. He would definitely take the chance to reign over the empire I had built.I sighed, realising I had made more enemies than I thought possible. Both of them wanting, the end of me. While Venturi had taken some sort of liking towards me, I knew him well enough to know he would do anything to reach his goal, and from what the 'twins' had told me, he was even willing to kill for it.He had killed many

A/N: Mature themes coming up later on this chapter.“No.”I said so simply, knowing it would easily snap his patience like a twig, and then hopefully he will leave me the hell alone.“No?!” His voice raised many decibels, making me wonder if he ever heard that word. I groaned, massaging my temples, his nonsense was starting to give me an aching head again.“Yes, Tristan! No! I won’t get out!” I rose my voice above his, stubbornly, making it clear to him I was willing to put up a fight if it means necessary.“Last time, Jis-”But I cut him off, “Come get me, Toothless!” I snapped, daring him, knowing he wouldn’t. I waited for him to walk off and maybe confront me later about this.The calming silence that camefrom the other side of the doorletme know he was probably gone. I sighed gently, and I clo
I stared at my leg for what seemed for hours. I sat there as shock engulfed me in a whole; a fog that wrapped me within itself. I wanted to open my mouth, trying to give myself some sort of reassurance, but nothing came, my mind was still processing what I had witnessed.I grazed over my leg, waiting for pain to strike through, to make me regret ever touching the wound. No agonising pain, but all I felt was the soft touches of fingertips over the bare skin. No blood, no cracks, no cuts… Nothing but soft smooth skin.My breathing hitched my throat, maybe a mirage or dream or something I hoped to see, only to be pulled back into reality as the pain took its effect, but even as I sat there, waiting for that thought to become reality.. it simply didn’t.I shook my head several times and rubbed my eyes, making sure what I saw, is what I saw. Letting out a deep sigh, I hung my head in my hands, feeling completely overwhelmed and lost.
I gasped, stiffening under his boldness, but didn’t get much time to react as a loud deep voice broke through, “Austin!” I almost shivered under the coldness it held, like sharp shards of ice piercing your skin.Austin chuckled, as if used to it, pulled away from me, allowing me to see Tristan by the door, a deep scowl and a sharp glare within those seafoam eyes, making them shine with a stronger intensity. His hands balled into fists as his eyes glared at Austin, who stood next to me.“Relax big boss, just having a little bit of fun.” He replied calmly, causing me to raise an eyebrow.“You’re worse than those New York pricks,” I muttered, shaking my head and stepping into the office, paying little to no attention to Tristan as I passed him.Alec was the first I saw as I stepped in, he shook his head, presumingly at Austin. Walking into the centre of the office, I could feel a pair of eyes boring into
Tristan frowned deeply gazing over every feature of my face once again. I gazed into the bright seafoam colour, waiting for Alec and Austin to leave. From my peripheral view, I saw them both looking up at Tristan, silently asking if he was ok with the demand I laid out.He nodded slowly turning slightly towards them, but his eyes never left mine for a second, even as they exited and closed the door behind him.I smirked, ready to break the damn silence that dominated the room as we studied each eyes, trying yet again, to find the unknown, “Forbidden, huh?” I raised an eyebrow.He sighed, turning to the side, wrenching his gaze from me, “Why are you here, Jisoo?”I rolled my eyes, “Why do you think I am here, Toothless?”“There’s nothing for you, here.” He muttered, round his large table to sit on his chair. His eyes casted away now, not even letting me spare a glance at those
