Her eyes finally fell open but looking up was not an option as she tried to look away from him but Mariana really knew she had to do this before giving her body to him.
She knew she had to this now before she changes her mind.
"I am married " she whispered, her voice soft with pain and defeat but her words sharper that spears and knives attacking his heart.
Anger rushed through his blood like venom.
Sadness, betrayal, lies.
He felt like the whole world around him was starting to move forward locking him in a four walled room.
"Marco " she whispered but got no reply as he tried to move far away from her, her hand held on to his wrist making him look down at her" please let me explain "
If she thought, she saw flames in his eyes then her sentence made it even worse.
Not wanting to do what he will regret afterwards Marco stood up strid
Anger, sadness, pain and other emotions Marco could never describe took over his body as he stared at the broken girl in his room.Her knees were brought up to her chest and her arms wrapped tightly around her, her eyes were still closed while her hair made a curtain around her.' she was extremely beautiful ' though he couldn't utter that thought out loud in this moment." Mariana " he whispered wanting to tell her to stop and that he was sorry for judging her in the first place but apparently she seemed in another world that was filled with pain."I woke up in the middle of the night, with a little pool of blood while the other was dried on my wedding dress that was in shreds.Good enough I was alone cause I wasn't sure that seeing any one at the moment would make me comfortable, I cried for my pain and mischief but then he was in the room and started to laugh again.
Mariana's eyes stayed on the piano, as tears fell down her eyes, she didn't want to look at Marco.She knew that by the end of her story, he wouldn't want her any more and it kind of hurt deeply. Seriously it really hurtIt hurt that all her life and hopes will always be shattered due to her history with Valente.A finger trailed along her naked shoulder making her shiver which pulled her out of her thought.She turned her head to the side and caught sight of Marco standing behind her." Your precious as a pearl " he whispered and her eyes closed automatically.His words pulled a string of her heartHe trailed his finger slowly along the scar that started from her shoulder and ended a few inches above her butt, his touch sending a shiver down her spine.It aroused him having her naked body in front of him like this made his hands itch to worship every inch of her.It made goose bumps rise on her skin"These " he w
Mariana rolled over in bed turning away from the bright sun to continue with her sleep.She had never felt so free in her life, deep in her there was the peace that she always longed for."What are you smiling about ?" She almost jumped back at Marco's voice.She didn't expect him to be around by the time she woke up, her eyes slowly opened.Looking up she saw him getting dressed ready to leave, "Marco" her voice was so small and husky but still it made his heart flatter.She sat up pulling the white sheet around her body looking at him"I need a date tonight" he replied turning around to look at her."Okay..." He walked over to her sitting besides her and grabbing her hand in his."I want you to come with me tonight, we won't be staying long. I just need to check on something " he added holding her gaze " and maybe we can have a perfect d
Mariana stood still her thoughts moving back to Marco.Her heart started to hurt deeply for him but then it was all her fault.The cobra's don't work without Valente's orders or hers but now she wasn't around.That meant Valente knew where she was already and knew about her and Marco, if not then why would he attack Di Martino brothers.How could she had skipped the signs yet they were always in front of her.She stared at pair of eyes all focused on her, she wasn't ready to let these good people who helped her get hurt.She turned towards the bed side table and knelt besides it, she pulled the first safe open and searched through the mass of papers.She had seen Marco keep two to three guns in these safes, all she needed was one.Opening the other safe, she saw two guns and pulled them out. She checked them properly and good enough they were all loaded.She walked back into the wardrobe and grabbed a pair of flats from
" Don't you think you have done enough, you're the one that attacked us at the hospital that day. You blew up Marco's house and then ordered for his assassination.In all you forgot one thing, I know all the faces of the cobras. I grew up with them and I know all there tactics, just because I had lost my voice doesn't make me stupid "She turned towards the cobras that stood behind Gaetano and Gianni with raised guns" lower your damn guns cobras and untie every single person in this building, let them free " she ordered and Valente's eyes widened."Don't you dare " Valente roared and Mariana shook her head."Your forgetting again Valente, I rule but you are just a husband. You only rule when am not around.Do as I say Cobras " she spoke up and her men did as she said.Letting lose Gaetano strode to where she sat " Mariana " he called and she shook her head."Please take Marco to the hospital " she whispered staring down at the
Mariana turned away from Valente towards the car window she slowly put the tips of her hand in her dress and pulled out the gun carefully.She stared at it before turning towards Valente and raised it at him realising it's safety " Stop the car Valente " She spoke up with confidence.He sighed staring at the front " come on honey we both know you can't..." His words were cut short when she shot his side of the window making him stop the car abruptly as the bullet passed in front of his eyes.She opened the car door and stepped out as he followed out, she didn't want to go back with him.Mariana raised her gun again earning a few screams from the people around as the cars that were on their trail stopped around them.She slowly moved to his side as he closed the car door, this was it the time to end all of this.She looked at Valente and remembered her daughter's smile, Mar
"What the hell are you doing here ?" A familiar voice yelled at her pulling her out of her thoughts.Mariana wiped her tears and turned towards an angry Rosalie who stood a few inches away from her.Mariana wiped her tears away and looked back at Marco for a few minutes " don't worry am leaving " she whispered.She turned away and faced his family again, Stephanie and Adriana sat in the far corner looking up at her.Rosalie couldn't hold her anger, Mariana wondered where the others had gone but that wasn't something she would mind now.Even though it hurt, she understood there anger. How could she forget that it was all her fault."Am so sorry this happened, it's all my fault " Mariana whispered looking back at Marco."I hope you forgive me one day for putting you in to such a condition, I love you " she whispered to him and wiped another tear.
Seven months laterMiami10 : 48 pmMariana looked around her studio and sighed, her eyes moved back to Marco's painting she had just completed.Those brown - gold eyes that held her world, she really missed him.It had been long since she had last seen him and he was in coma by then.She had remained in contact with Gaetano all this time, he kept informing her of his well being.Marco had spent four months in coma and woke up three months ago, even though he kept asking for her she didn't go.She had settled in Miami and created under ground training centers for body guards and assassins, she had bought a house here though it felt empty being here alone but it had become home.Mariana slowly held on to the wall pulling her self up on her feet and breathed out. Her back and shoulders now seriously hurt.She looked up at the wall clock and realised she had spent all her morning hours seated here staring at Marco's po
