“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 for a second and was trying to overcome my fear. I took a step forward.
“Closer honey…“ He said. His face was blank again with his eyes, pure dark. “Three more steps…“ He said that was almost a whisper. I’m doubting if I should follow him but in the end, I stepped forward near him.
“You will not slap me?” I asked as I was taking my second step to get near him. His aura suddenly changed, from a wild boar to a sweet rabbit.
“I won’t. Two more steps honey…“ I stared at him and found out that there was something in his dim eyes. Something that was hidden and well preserved.
“You will not do something unnecessary.“ I just want to make sure that he’s totally harmless. When in fact, from the very beginning he’s the total opposite.
He shook his head and giggled. It’s the first time that I heard this satisfying sound of him. “I’m planning to. But now, I’m not going to do it.“ He gently said as he raised his hands to me, as if he’s asking me to take it.
“One more step.“ He wisped as his tantalizing eyes was focused on me. One more step! One more step before the dungeon will burn me alive. I took a step and closed my eyes to ready myself if ever he’ll beat me.
“Open your eyes honey…“ After hearing his gentle voice, I decided to open my eyes and was surprised to what I saw in his hands.
“A-are you sick Fergus?“ I asked. My thoughts were confused at the moment and my brain was messy with too much questions. “Is this for real?“ I felt my heart skipped a beat.
“Tsk! Does giving you a wedding ring means that I’m not in my normal state?“ He said full of sarcasm. I didn’t think about his pitch, all that’s in my mind right now was this diamond ring in front of me.
“T-thank you!“ I said full of happiness. The joy that I’m feeling right now couldn’t be compared to anything and anyone.
For a couple like us that was just being arranged, he didn’t took some effort to make up for me before. Not until now that he finally gave me a wedding ring. I waited for three years to make this happen.
“It’s not a big thing. After all, ----“ I saw him glancing at my empty fingers then looked at me again. “A ring symbolizes that you’re already taken. This will prevent men to flirt with a married woman like you. However-----“
My happiness slowly turned to disappointments when he put the ring on the bed and quickly stood up.
“That doesn’t mean that I’ll wear a ring just for you.“ After letting those painful words crushed me, he already take his leave.
“W-why?“ I murmured without knowing that my tears were already flowing on my cheeks. I reached out the diamond ring and was in love with it.
“At least I have you…“ I whispered as I put the ring on my ring finger. I laid on bed and raised my hand with my ring on my finger. I stared at it and I realized something.
Fergus’ always puzzles me with his actions. Sometimes he’s somewhat like a caring person, sometimes he makes me feel that he’s jealous. Rarely he’s gentle, but almost everyday he's rude and scary.
“Humph… Maybe my husband has mental disorder. Should I call our family doctor?“ I annoyingly said while remembering the past.
“But I’m still happy that he finally gave me a ring.“ I smiled full of contentment. When we got married, we only got our marriage certificate and the form.
Even if I wanted to experience my dream grand wedding, I couldn’t brag with it at all. I already have feelings for him five years ago, and that time, he was still very nice to me.
He would treat me for dinner and take good care of me. Not until he knew that we’re going to get married. I thought that he’s going to be happy for knowing that we can be tied together. But what he did was the opposite of all my expectations.
Cutting my memories from the past, I decided to get up in bed and took a bath. It’s already three in the afternoon and I need to freshen up myself. Maybe Fergus was nowhere to be found again.
“All done!“ After almost thirty minutes, I’m done. I comb my wet hair and wore my anime printed pajamas. Well, there’s nothing new, I’m always early in bed because this house was boring.
“Who's there?“ I shouted with full of fear because of hearing a sound outside my room. I picked up my pillow and slowly got near the door.
Maybe there was a trespasser! I alone was living here for three years and Fergus was probably nowhere. I peeped outside and saw the back of a man that was obviously had taken a bath. I was mesmerized by his muscles and wet hair.
“What the f----" I cut him off by throwing him the pillows. “You bastard! Who are you? Don’t come near me or else----“
“Or else what?!“ I opened my eyes when I heard a familiar deep voice. “F-Fergus!“ I stuttered and didn’t know how to face his angry looks.
“Why are you here?“ I asked then my sight landed on his eight pack abs. His face was so handsome and his body was tempting. No doubt that women and gays would definitely be crazy for his touch and attention.
“Staring is rude honey…“ He said then smirked. “Look at what you’ve done.“ My mind was frozen when my eyes goes down. I can see him! His towel was on the floor and his----his little monster was waving at me.
“You stupid pervert!“ Because of shock, I threw the pillow again once more and wanted to burry him alive. This rude man was really out of the line.
“What the fvck are you doing woman?!“ He’s struggling to hold my hands but I stepped back and was about to go inside my room when I felt his hand on my waist. Dragging me near to him.
“Got you!“ He exclaimed. “Let me go you moron!“ I shouted and didn’t care about his punishment at all. I wanted to go in my room and hide my burning face. I struggled to get out of his grip.
“My little demon is going to eat you if you don’t behave yourself Demonise!“ I stopped when I heard his angry tone. I felt something poking my butt and I’m not that ignorant to not know what it was.
“Hmm… Stay still and don’t move.“ He’s hardly breathing and his breath was touching my ears. “That’s it honey… Behave yourself…“ He added and I can smell his normal scent. It’s good and addictive.
I could feel his hands slowly losing their grip on my waist. I could hear his deep breath and he’s hardly keeping up to it.
“Damn you woman!“ I can sense that he’s already putting the towel but I didn’t dare to move a single inch.
I’m afraid and my mind couldn’t process. I didn’t want to look at him either. “Go to the living room and wait for me.“ He seriously said but I didn’t move.
“Where are you going?” I didn’t know why those silly words came out of my mouth. I bit my lip and want to hide my embarrassment. I heard him took a deep sighed but I didn’t look at him still.
“I’m going to take a cold shower. Don’t blame me, it’s definitely your fault.“ He said then closed the door.
After making sure that he’s already in his room, I took a deep sighed myself.
I touched my chest that’s currently getting wild inside. The heck? Should I call myself ‘lucky‘ now? Without knowing, my lips stretched and curved a silly smile.
“His huge…“ My mind was so bad. Hehehe!
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.
Demonise POV:“ There are too many guards out there, I guess your devil husband made this act. “ Sarah stated while exploring her gaze outside the car.“ Your husband is really weird! He makes you feel that he hated you, but then now that you’ve given up, he’s not letting you out of the picture. “ Ariana in the other hand is so frustrated while her eyes are full of anger.“ He’s not going easy on you. “ Bella who’s currently driving is seriously focused on the road. I took a deep breath and didn’t say anything. We’re going to the airport because I decided to get away from him, but I guess he already knows what I would do. Tsk!“ We’re here! “ Sarah exclaimed. We’ve arrived to the airport and Bella parked the car away from the said place. She did it so that we can’t gain too much attention. I was about to go out the car when Bella stopped me.
Demonise POV:“ Dear? “ Tears fell down on my cheeks when I heard my mom's voice. Angelic as always. “ How are you? How's dad? “ I asked and didn’t bother to wipe my tears off my face.“ We’re fine dear, tell me what happened? Why did you suddenly fly the way to Philippines? “ I hold my voice and breath deeply before answering.“ I have things to settle mom. Are you fine with dad in New york? “ I intentionally beat around the bush. My parents don’t know what really happened, and thank God that Fergus didn’t tell them too.“ The weather is quite new to us, but we will be back after our business is settled dear… “ My mom stated for my assurance. They are in New york to handle the things that must be taken care off.For the last twenty-seven years of my life, I’m not familiar with business and I don’t have any idea about it. Though my parents and Fer
Demonise POV:“ Bye mom! “ I waved my hand and gave them my flying kiss. Black is going to school while Timothy will be having his business via video call in his private office.“ Goodbye! “ I shouted and smiled at them. I watched how they left the house and got into the car. Witnessing how they slowly became invisible in my sight, I felt the sorrow again.I don’t know why but for the past five years in my life, I can feel that there’s something missing. I can’t dare to name it but my heart keeps on craving for something, for someone?I walked inside the house and let the door open. I was stunned when my phone rang loudly. I hurriedly reached my phone and answer it without even looking if who’s the caller.“ Hello? Who’s this? “ I asked while I’m sitting in the sofa that was located in our living room. “ Hello? “ I asked again when I heard nothing but a deep sigh.
