“So, do you want to tell me how you became Crystal’s favorite uncle?” I asked and Nikolay chuckled as he wrapped his arms around my waist while I laid on my stomach on his chest. The two of us were still in the living room laying on the couch after our active afternoon. A light blanket covering our bodies. The blanket was one that we used when we were watching movies in the living room back home. And having come out of the hospital, and being here for a week. Nikolay refused to let me do anything that would exhaust me. Therefore, my best solution was movies and cuddles.
I had noticed Crystal’s behavior around Nikolay at the hospital, she would tell him random stories and the two would spend ours talking while we were in the suite. According to Richard, Crystal would tell Nikolay stories to distract him from his pain while I was out conscious.
“Well, one thing lead to another and she caught me crying in one of the hospital hal
Nikolay:“Nikolay, are you sure it’s a good idea to bring Kiara with us? You know that I don’t want her going through such pain” Sebastian asked looking at me. The man kept his voice low for his sister not to hear him even though she wasn’t close to earshot. The girl was talking to Maddie who was also coming with us. Everyone was technically coming, both to see Sebastian take his rightful place and to support Kiara in what is to come.My wife was to face her mother. The woman who had hid her brother from her throughout all those years, and if what Natalie said was true. Then that woman also cheated on her husband and Harry is a bastard child. All those thoughts ran through my mind as I looked at my wife suddenly fearing her coming with me. In all honesty, I truly didn’t want her coming with me. But I knew that she had to. First, as my wife, and second, as the man’s sister.“Believe me, I don’t want her to com
Kiara:I sat by my mum’s bed after her surgery was done and the bullet that she got in her abdomen was taken out.Her hands were cuffed to the bed as she slept. I kept my eyes on her as I waited for her to wake up. I knew that she wouldn’t wake up anytime soon. The woman had been asleep for a while now. But I ordered that she was given something to keep her asleep for a while, I needed to process what happened first before she opened her eyes to speak to me. The woman would be seeing me as an enemy now, and I wouldn’t be able to blame her, in her eyes. I killed her husband, technically, I did take part in killing her. Even if it was a little bit.“Baby girl, you need to rest” Nikolay said walking inside the room. He kissed the crown of my head and I smiled at him leaning in to his touch, his hand softly massaged my shoulder and I raised my head to look at him “I don’t want you getting sick princess, your mom is supposed
Nikolay:“Boss…” Vladimir said when he saw me walk down the stairs. It was a bit of a rough night with Kiara being in the pain that she was in. I couldn’t blame her for any of it, and I couldn’t stop her from letting out her pain. I wanted her to let it go, I didn’t want her to hold it in. I wanted her letting her pain out. To tell me how she was feeling, I didn’t want her breaking inside. Especially not when I could see right through her beautiful green eyes “Lilian woke up, Sebastian just called to inform us”I nodded at him and sighed running my fingers through my hair in frustration, as much as I didn’t want Kiara speaking to the woman. I knew that she wouldn’t be able to rest until she has, and because of that. I couldn’t stop her from seeing the woman.“How is she?” Vladimir asked sensing my anger and I sighed shaking my head.“She isn’t well, Vladimir.
Kiara:I looked at the room which I’ve only entered a few times as I grew up.Father was once determined to let me learn and know every single code that existed in this place. I was the only one who knew of them. He wouldn’t even tell anything to mum about them, I didn’t understand why, but now I believe that I may know the reason behind his request.The woman has probably been cheating on him all along and the man might have known about it. He had his own affairs, however, their marriage was kept intact for the peace treaty between his and her family. Plus, the fact that he had a child, a daughter, well, me. He didn’t want me to find out about anything, knowing that it would probably end up turning messy if anyone finds out that he was being cheated on, and he as a man wouldn’t have accepted knowing that his wife was cheating on him. Well, that was the only logical explanation I could think of in such a situation.I remember
Nikolay: “Baby girl?” “Yes, love?” Kiara asked turning to face me. The girl had been quiet since leaving her mother’s house and even though I didn’t want to bother her with talking about the subject. I couldn’t help but worry about her. “What happened inside there? Did she say anything that…?” “Nothing love, she didn’t say anything that I didn’t expect. The woman simply wanted to vent and I’m guessing that being put in the corner made her lose herself” Kiara answered looking out the window. The two of us have been driving for the past hour, I was initially supposed to take us back home. But seeing the state that my wife was in, I didn’t want her going home being upset. “When are we going back home? I mean to the States?” Kiara asked and I smiled at her taking her hand in mine and kissing her knuckle. “Believe me, even I miss it back there. No matter what the bullshit was, it was us and our family, none of the fucked up mess we’ve been
“I do” Grace said looking Richard in the eye. Tears fell from her mother’s eyes as she watched her daughter say those two words.“I now pronounce you man and wife, you may kiss the bride”Richard cupped Grace’s cheeks and connected their lips. Kissing her tenderly as if it was their first kiss. Everyone clapped for the happy couple, both Nikolay and Kiara looked at one another. Holding each other’s hands, their fingers intertwined. Nikolay brought Kiara’s hand to his lips and kissing her knuckle. His hand went to her stomach, where their little daughter grew.“Congratulations” Sebastian smiled at Nikolay who nodded at him. His hand holding Amalia’s, Lilian had been invited to come to the wedding but the woman chose to stay back and come when her grandchild was born. Her and Sebastian have agreed that she is freed however she would be under surveillance. His men were watching over her, the woman ha
“Is this some kind of joke?” Kiara asked frowning in confusion, waking up in the familiar podium where she once grew up watching people die in front of her as she herself fought for her own life. “I don’t know, but I don’t like this” Richard said from beside Kiara. The two were trying to process how they even got here to begin with. People around them started coming to their senses as they woke up inside the podium. “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to The Bloodlust Games, The final chapter” ************************* Re-entering the Bloodlust games was never an option in Kiara’s life. But when revenge is on the line and both she and Richard are forced into them, they have nothing to do but survive, for it was either play and live. Or die…
“Is everything ready?” Lilian asked looking at her lover. The man who she had defended and protected against the whole world despite being wrong. “Almost my love, just a few twitches and we’ll be set” Ian said programming the system as she wished it to be. The woman had turned out being deadlier than he had expected. He didn’t know of this side of her when Louis was alive. The maximum he thought she could do was cheat on him. But as it turned out, the woman had more to her than he had imagined and he didn’t want to admit it out loud, even though the woman technically saw it through his eyes. He liked this side of her. “I can’t wait for it to be ready! Our dreams will finally start coming true” she whispered looking at her lover who smiled. It had been five years since Louis had died and the Ivanov family got what they wanted. Five long years, and they’ve waited patiently for this moment. They have been working together on this project since the woman’s ex husband’s d
