5 YEARS AGO…
“You want this right? Then face the consequences!“ He tightened his grip on my wrist and dragged me to bed. Anger was visible in his well-dim eyes, like fireworks in the night.
“I’m begging you Fergus! Don’t do this to me!“ I shouted and tried to run away from his torture but he’s too strong. He easily torn my clothes then climbed up on top of me.
“Don’t do this. P-please don’t!“ I begged for his mercy but he didn’t listen. Instead, he bit my neck and put hickeys on it. “Don’t!“ I begged once again but still no response.
“You want me right?”
“You want money and my fame! You ruined my happiness Demonise!“ Anger was there with a hint of disgust. I scrambled as much as I could but my strength couldn’t be compared to his.
From another time around, he ruined my innocence and purity. One night wasn’t enough to settle his anger towards me. For three years, I’ve been in hell with his punishments.
All I could do was to cry in a dark corner and wished for him to love me back, but even the stars at night were not so kind enough to grant my desired wish.
After he reached his satisfaction, he then walked towards the white door and I guess, he's going to take a bath to wash away my dirt on his body.
Should I call myself ‘lucky' to marry the person I love but have loved someone else? I slowly moved my body and I could feel the aches in it.
I’ve been bearing lots of beatings from my husband. My husband who doesn’t even look at me as his wife.
When the door of the bathroom opened, I was welcomed by his icy blue eyes.
“I’m going out. Don’t expect me to come home, not even tomorrow.” I was lost in my painful thoughts when I heard his arrogant tone of voice. I was about to say something when I saw him closing the door with a bang.
I laid on bed once more and curled my body. Hell was not enough to explain the life that I had for the past years. I didn’t receive anything from the start yet he stole everything away from me.
“W-why? What did I do to deserve this?”
I whispered as if he was still with me. We’re married but he treated me as a toy. I’m worst than his maids.
All I did was loving him and giving everything to him, but I didn’t know why he kept on saying that I’m disgusting. Like I’m a pathetic woman in his eyes.
“Cheer up Demonise!“ I wanted to comfort myself. I’m always an independent girl that men would look up to, but Fergus was like a thorn on the rose. Deadly and painful. However, no one can blame me for loving a person like him.
After thinking about the pain that I had received from the past three years, I decided to take a bath and fix myself. I washed my body and my hair. The hickeys were too revealed. I brushed my teeth and wrapped my body with a white towel. Then I walked towards my closet and grabbed my red pajamas.
I then dried my hair using a blower subsequently then jump onto my bed.
Oh! Before I forgot, this is my room while his room is next to mine.
Even If we’ve been together for years, I still don’t know about how his room looks-like. He doesn’t want me to be there and I didn’t try to sneak, not even once.
*BUZZZZ…. *BUZZZZ… *BUZZZ…
I reached my phone above the desk on my bedside. I looked at the caller and was hoping that it was him, but my excitements turned to disappointments. I pressed the answer button and waited for him to speak.
“How are you Dem?” He asked.
I smiled because of his worried voice. Even if the whole world was against me, he would stood up for me and would always do.
“Still breathing Tim. How ‘bout you? Still single? Haha…“ I said to him then laughed.
I always love teasing him because he’s like a dragon ready to blow fire when pissed off. I wrapped the blanket around me while still talking to him.
“As always. You know that I already have someone in my heart Dem.“ I stopped for awhile after hearing his voice. It felt weird to me. I didn't know why but there’s something that’s telling me that I know who it was.
“Then tell me so that I can fix your problem.“ I snapped out the weird feeling and tried to ask him about her.
I heard a deep sighed in the other line of the phone. Well, we’re somewhat like in the same boat right now.
“I can’t.” He paused. “I’m still not ready to tell her about my emotional agendas. I’m not ready yet Dem.“ It seems like his tone was a little bit heavy yet, it felt weird again. Maybe it’s just my imagination.
“Ok! Whenever you’re ready, you can always talk to me.“ I wanted to comfort him but I couldn’t even comfort myself. “I’ll hang up the phone then.” Hearing him said yes, I ended the call and laid down on bed.
I was just humming around until the darkness consumed me. I’m sleepy and I need to rest. My body needs to rest, so was my mind and my heart. I felt pity for them, they’re the one who’s been broken all these years.
Four days had passed but Fergus didn’t even send a message to me. Though I’m used to it, I still couldn’t stop assuming that he cares for me. I already ate my breakfast and I didn’t know what to do. I’m bored but couldn’t even seek for fresh air.
I’m here downstairs reading a book that's written by HEAVENinHELL24. Maybe this was always been my daily routine. Eating, reading, and sleeping. Oh I also forgot! I’m also waiting for him almost everyday.
I’m with my sleeveless white shirt paired with a black shorts. An eye glasses and a messy hair. I don’t have to make myself pretty, after all, I’m just his prisoner with no sentimental value at all.
“Oh baby! Why are you in a hurry?“ I froze when I heard someone’s voice. Frowning my forehead, the sweats slowly embraced me.
I tried to ignore it but it’s just way too unbearable.
“Baby… Let’s go upstairs? You want to have fun right?“ His voice was like a kick on the ass. Damn him! Bringing his fling inside our house. Does he have the word respect? How could he?!
“I want to but I’m kind of hungry. I want to eat first baby.“ I witnessed how she wrapped her arms on my husbands neck then the next moved caught me off guard.
She suddenly kissed him. She fvcking kissed my husband in our house?
The kissed was way too wild that I couldn’t look to them. How could she kissed him without him, beating her? How could he kissed her without him, hurting her? I felt jealous. I’m jealous because of the way he’s treating that girl.
It seems like I’m not his cup of tea, but can I be a milk instead? Silly me. Like what he always said, ‘ I have no room in his heart. Not even forever! ‘
They’re about to go upstairs when I suddenly spilled my thoughts. “You’re hungry right?“ Both of their sight landed on my figure. There’s no time for cowardness. I just want to get his attention a little bit.
“Oh! Who is she babe?“ The girl with a blonde hair asked Fergus, my husband. The two pair of eyes that I always been loving for years stared at me.
Was he doubting about my identity? I know that our marriage was never been announce in public but we’re already tied.
“Babe?” This flirty woman was really irritating. She’s so close to him. I smiled at her and was about to clear up her mind about me when Fergus stopped me.
Is he really going to say that I’m his wife? But instead, what comes out from his mouth broke me even more.
“She’s my helper. Feel free to ask her service first, since she’s too desperate to serve us.“ I glanced at him and saw how he smirked at me. Because of embarrassment, I looked down and stared the floor.
“Ahmm.. Can you cook for me? I’m starving.” She asked while putting a fake smile on her face. I know her tactics, I could sensed her mask. Even though I didn’t want to, but I couldn’t say no. Fergus would kill me if I say so.
“It’ll be serve ten minutes from now. I’ll excuse myself first and prepare what I can do.“ Saying these words made me pinched my pride as the legal wife. She may not know that I’m his lover’s wife, but how could Fergus tell her that I’m just his helper?
“Make it fast Demonise, my girlfriend is hungry.“ I heard his dark manly voice from a distance but I didn’t bother myself to answer his demand. I should be happy that he came back home, but with his “ so-called “ girlfriend? Forget it!
Cooking a meat with eggs and bacon for his ‘mistress' made me want to puke. Serving someone but I could not even serve myself? Dang it! Damn them!
I was about to turn myself near the table to prepare the plates, but to my surprise, I froze when I felt a dark presence at my back.
“F-Fergus…“ I stuttered and I didn’t know what to do. Should I turn myself around? But what if---------, what if our nose touch?
I remained standing while he’s also at my back. “D-Demonise…“ He whispered and I could feel the butterflies in my stomach. My body shivered when his breath explored my hair. What the fudge was he doing?
“What are you doing Fergus?” I tried to speak up for my chaotic deliberations. My body trembled when his hand touched my shoulders and squeezed it roughly.
“Don’t you dare tell Aziyah that you’re my wife. Or else, -------“ He paused for awhile and moved his face near my ear. “You’ll face the consequences, woman!“
He tightened his grip on my shoulders and sniffed my messy hair. Fear occupied my heart when his right hand landed on my neck, like it was seeking something there.
“Fergus!“ My heart almost jump when he rubbed my collarbone and pinched it.
“Stop!” I protested when I realized that he’s choking me. I struggled to breath and catch some air when he added some force to choke me.
“You’re killing me!” I was about to attack him when the girl earlier shouted from the living room.
“What’s taking you so long baby?“
“I’ll be there quickly.”
Irritation was in her pitch. Fergus loosened his grip on my neck and stared at me. As if he’s going to devour my soul out of my body.
“Don’t make any mistake.“ He mumbled straight into my eyes. “If you disobey me, you know what will I do Demonise.“
My breath became normal when he moved aside then left me behind. I thought that I’m going to collapse. Good thing that I remained my stance.
Before going back to the living room to bring their food, I reached for a cup of cold water and drank it all up. Then I realized, I must prepare myself every time he’s near me.
Demonise POV: “I’m full.“ Aziyah licked the spoon and put it on the bowl of soup that was now empty. She’s sitting next to Fergus while he’s staring at her with so much affection in his dim eyes. “Instead of having fun indoors, how about we go shopping instead?” I witnessed how she chained her hands on Fergus. But in Fergus' eyes, I could see no disgust but fondness. “But you said your dizzy? Are you fine now babe?“ Standing next to them and hearing their lovey-dovey conversation made my heart aches. I was supposed to be the one whom he cared the most, but why did he let me feel that I’m not even worthy to be stared? “I’m fine babe. Let’s go shopping? You know that I want to spend time with you.“ Aziyah leaned her head on Fergus' shoulders. He didn’t even got angry about it like what he always did to me. Instead, he caressed her hair and stared at her with pure contentment. I felt a bang of pain in my chest when I saw him smiling. His smile th
Demonise POV: “What brought you here, Timothy?“ Fergus' eyes were so sharp that you can feel the chills deep inside. Aziyah on the other hand was confused and obviously not aware of what’s coming next. “I came here to wonder around, and I met Dem here.“ He normally said and tilted his head to see who’s with Fergus. Knowing that Tim might know about Aziyah, I got panicked and didn’t know what to do. “Who’s she? A business partner?“ He asked and looked at me. I could feel that my hands were sweating. I didn’t have a clue on how would he react if ever he would find out that Fergus was not good to me at all. “I-I ahmm… S-she's his….“ I’m loss of words and I didn’t know how to say it. I looked at Fergus, my eyes were begging for him to help me, but I didn’t get any response. “Are you Timothy? The owner of Diamond corporation?“ I was awakened from my thoughts when Aziyah suddenly asked my cousin. Does she know about my cousin’s identit
Demonise POV: “Come here…“ He demanded. We had arrived at our house ten minutes ago and now, I’m facing a huge burden. “Do you hear me Demonise? You know I hate repeating myself.“ He continued while remaining his bossy posture. “I don’t want to! You'll beat me again.“ I said trying to hide my weak side but I failed. He’s seriously gazing at me. He’s now sitting on my bed while I’m still standing near the door. “I won’t…“ He stared at me and licked his lower lip. “I won’t if you’ll follow my orders.“ Hearing him saying these statements made me bit my lip. I’m trembling and I know that he could sensed it. “You’ll punish me again! I hate it when you let me feel that I’m worthless.” I stated. Trying to hide the pain and my anger. For the first time in my life, I took a chance to say what my mind wants to say to him. “I don’t want to repeat myself again Demonise. Come closer!“ I could barely hear his hard tone. I didn’t blink fo
Demonise POV: “You’re innocent Demonise. Keep that to your beautiful mind.“ I mumbled to myself then started to walk downstairs. Even if my body was currently moving, my mind was filled with thoughts. Specially when my mind pictures out Fergus' whole. “Silly me!“ I said to myself as I was poking my head to wake up from my erotic imaginations. I reached the living room and sat at the sofa near the center table. I opened the TV and watched Tom and Jerry. “How come Tom isn’t tired after chasing Jerry for a hundreds of times?“ I asked myself. I didn’t know why but I’m jealous to Jerry. Tom always chased him but always end up getting in trouble. “I wish I was Jerry…“ I whispered as I was insecure. “You want to be a rat?“ I almost jump out of the sofa because of shock. I moved my head and noticed that Fergus was already at my left side. “Maybe…” I simply said and looked at his laptop that was in his right ha
Fergus POV:“ Why are you making it hard for me? “ I whispered in her ears and stared at his innocent face. Watching her sleeping peacefully in bed, was always been my daily routine for five years.Knowing that she hated me makes me feel ashamed of my whole existence. “ Darn it! Why are you so hard-headed? “ I asked her even if I know that she’s still in her deep sleep.I observed her face once again then stand up and turned around. “ Maybe you’ll not gonna understand this for now, ------- “ I glance at her, lying in bed.“ But I know that you’ll be aware of the truth, sooner or later honey… “ I murmured and walked away from her. I don’t wanna ruin such a beauty, but I don’t have a chance but to risk my happiness for her.Demonise POV:I slowly opened my eyes as a ray of sunlight made my eyes wonder. I regain my consciousness and rubbed my eyes using my fingers.“ Such a wonderful sunlight. “ I stated as I witnessed a beautiful sunrise from
Timothy POV:“ But dad! “ I wanted to scream and let the whole universe know that I owned her, but I don’t have the power and authority to do so.“ I already warned you about it Timothy! You keep on doing what you want without thinking about the consequence. “ My father glared at me and stand up. “ I’m leaving. “ He said before leaving the office.I’m currently in my office right now, organizing everything but my mind is in a mess. “ Why can’t I stop thinking about you?... “ I whispered as I began to explore my thoughts.From the first time that I have seen her, she became an apple of my eye. I always wanted to tell her about how I feel, but that man keeps on bragging me. Damn him!“ Someday, you’ll gonna be my property. “ I said trying to fill the loneliness inside my heart. Back when we were kids, she always took care of me and will wait for me to play with her.But when he came in the picture, everything changes. Her attention, her
Author's POV:Right after Demonise run, Fergus stand up as fast as he can, making Aziyah fall off the floor.“ Aww! “ Aziyah exclaimed when he felt the pain in her butt. Fergus didn’t bother to look at her, instead, he run towards Min and punch him that causes Min to spit blood.“ What the hell is your problem man?! “ He shouted after he fell on the floor. “ Why the heck did you punch me?! “ Min glared at him but suddenly looked away when he saw Fergus' eyes. It’s dangerous and full of anger.“ Why did you bring her here? Did you intentionally do it? “ Fergus shouted as if he would eat him alive. Aziyah in the other hand was frozen, she couldn’t believe that Fergus would react that way just because his helper saw them so intimate.“ I didn’t bring your wife here man! She said that she’ll visit you and we coincidentally saw each other. “ Min explained as he feels that Fergus' would literally kill him if he don’t speak up.“ W-wife? “ Minmin's atten
Demonise POV:“ l love you… “ I woke up in bed with so much pain in my body. I felt like I was tortured the whole night. Speaking of, I turned my head on the other side of the bed and saw him. His half figure was hidden in the pillows but his other eyes are closed.He’s an innocent goddess whenever his sleeping, but a good-looking demon when awake. I traced my fingers on his face, I can feel that he’s exhausted. Tired of what we were doing yesterday night.“ I love you too… “ I whispered and gave him a peek of kiss in his cheeks. “ But I’m tired… “ I added. Tears are slowly eating me, I can’t hide the pain in my heart. “ I hope you’ll be happy. “ I smiled and kissed him once again.The way he cared, touched, and kissed me yesterday was a bit different. If I would’ve known him, I might thought that he loves me too. But I know that it’s the most impossible word on his vocabulary.I was about to get off in bed when I felt a heavy thing in my stomach.
