I paced around the bedroom as I waited for Kiara to come back from the living room.
I knew that I promised Ivan not to interfere in whatever they were going to be saying or whatever conversation they were currently having. But fucking hell was this getting harder.
The door to the bedroom was knocked snapping me out of my daze as I turned to find the door opening and Kiara walking inside. Her eyes lit up when she saw me and she instantly ran toward me, wrapping her arms around my neck taking me off guard as I pushed her away to look at her in fear that he had hurt her. I would kill him if he did.
“Are you okay? Did he say anything that bothered you? Kiara, I swear if he did a bullet would…” Kiara stopped me by connecting our lips. Her hands cupping my cheeks as she ran her finger over my scruff. My arms instantly wrapped around her waist as I pulled her closer somewhat deepening the kiss before we pulled away to look at one anot
Kiara:“What are we going?” I asked Nikolay with a raised eyebrow. It’s been an hour since everyone left and Nikolay decided that him and I should go out. He had been walking around the bedroom trying to convince me to go out since.“A little date” Nikolay said smirking and I smiled keeping my eyebrow raised at him. He chuckled and wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled me closer to kiss my forehead, I smiled and laid my head on his chest wrapping my arm around his neck as I stood on my toes “I figured that you would spend some time with me alone away from the house”“Don’t worry. I’m okay with everything going on. I’m mad at anyone and I’m not hostile…”“And I would like to keep you in this not hostile mood. Come on, a little date would be good for the two of us. Plus, I’ve already planned everything out” Nikolay said making me frown in confusion. H
Nikolay:“So, you two plan on getting into war with a bastard who is playing with everyone’s life?” Timur asked and I looked at Kiara who nodded at the man who raise an eyebrow at me, I knew that he was surprised that I would be agreeing to put my wife into something like this. Especially since he knew how much I worried about and protected my wife “and you agreed to this?”“Not like I had another option, Grace and Claudia are in on this. We have to defeat the bastard before he puts anyone else’s life in danger” I said shrugging. Nikita kept her eyes on me studying my expression. She knew that I didn’t like this, putting my family’s life in danger was never something that I did. Especially not the women of the family. It was something that everyone knew about me, the Ivanov women were to be treated like queens, spoiled, cradled, loved, and cared for. Knowing that I was putting my sisters’ and wife’
Kiara:“Are you okay?” I asked Richard looking him in the eye. The man looked like he was going through hell and I couldn’t blame him. His little sister. The one person who was left of his family was in a life and death situation. If I were going to be honest, currently, we all were.“Don’t worry about me Kia, you should be worried about your family, the house…”“Do you really think that I would be worried about stones at the end of the day Richard? Have you not known me well and long enough?” I asked gently. Grace was sitting beside Richard holding his hand, their fingers intertwined but he removed his hand from hers and took both mine in his before bringing them to his lips and kissing my knuckles gently. His eyes stayed on mine as he did and I could see Grace tense at the sight of us.“I can’t thank you enough for this Kiara. You let go of everything that I did to you, you dropped it al
Nikolay:“Everything alright?” I asked Kiara who had her arms wrapped around my neck hugging me tightly when she saw me and the men walk inside the house. Vladimir, Anastas, Viktor, and Alexei went to the living room, Natalie hugged Anastas and Maddie jumped in Vladimir’s arms the second he walked inside.I was well aware that the woman was on edge since we left the house. Worried that something might not go as planned or that one of us would get hurt, and I knew that it wasn’t because she didn’t trust our capabilities. No, she knew exactly how strong we were and what we were capable of. But her worry about me was all out of love. I came back home with a knife wound a few months ago, the girl went crazy and would have went to find the man who hurt me had I not assured her that he was already dead. One bullet in the head caused his life. But the scar he left on my chest made my wife go crazy on me for a week.“Everything is fin
Kiara:“Did the little princess wake up?” I asked Richard entering the infirmary room where Crystal was now asleep. Nikolay’s arm was wrapped around my waist as he held me close to him, his body relaxed. I knew that despite him not liking Richard much, him knowing everything and understanding his proper intentions made my husband know what and who he was dealing with, which was something very important.“Not yet, she’s supposed to regain conscious in a bit” Richard said looking at us. He nodded at the two of us and I smiled at him. Crystal’s body laid comfortably on the hospital bed where she was sleeping. There were two nurses in the room in case she needed any assistance. The doctor was to also check up on her every few hours to make sure that she was okay, Nikolay’s orders.“You need to rest Richard. Crystal is safe now, but you need to sleep or at least eat something” Nikolay said looking at Richard
Nikolay:“What’s going on baby girl?” I asked Kiara once the two of us entered the room. I was well aware that something was wrong, her change in attitude. Her sudden worry, something was wrong. I knew my wife all too well to see when something was wrong and this showed me that something was very wrong.“Nikolay, something is very wrong. Everything was way too easy to be real, how was that possible?” Kiara asked looking at me. I frowned in confusion not understanding what she was talking about, I cupped her cheek making her look me in the eye. Her eyes were worried, instead of being satisfied with what we were doing, she was worried.“Kiara, baby girl, what is going on? What are you talking about?” I asked gently. My eyes looking at my beauty. Our eyes met, her green eyes on my blue ones and she shook her head at me. Even though her cheeks were cupped in my hands she was shaking. I could feel her worry in my hands.<
Kiara:“You blood damn…” I glared at the woman who entered the house as a traitor. I walked toward Amalia and chocked her, lifting her despite everyone who was trying to process what I was saying. Richard stood one step behind me, his eyes glaring at the woman who nearly shot his little sister. Had it not been us entering the infirmary on time. The woman would have killed the child. Richard shot her at first sight pushing me to stand behind him before the two of us ran toward Crystal to check for injuries. Luckily their weren’t.“Kiara, what are you talking about?” Nikolay asked wrapping his arm around my waist pulling me away from Amalia who was going limp in my arms for the loss of breath and blood “you’re going to kill the woman, what’s gotten into you Kiara?”“Her and her beloved husband are traitors. We entered the infirmary to find her holding a gun on Crystal. She knew that the girl was as
Nikolay:“We didn’t do anything Nikolay!” Amalia hissed glaring at me. I raised an eyebrow at her and looked at Nikita, nodding at her to keep going. I didn’t lay my hand on a woman. Thankfully, Nikita was here to do the job for me.Nikita grabbed the back of her neck and lowered her head to the water making her choke on it. I watched and looked at my watch counting before nodding at Nikita to pull the woman’s head out of the water. My eyes staring at her as she caught her breath “now, I will ask again. What else have you told them? And where is Sebastian?”“We didn’t tell them anything. He is out with our son! We have a child Nikolay!”“Is that why you had a gun pulled at the child who was in the infirmary?” I asked smirking.“I wasn’t pulling the gun at Crystal! Have you gone mad? Why would I kill a child when I had my own?” Amalia asked. I raised an eyebrow
