When Riya told me she wanted to talk to me privately I couldn’t express what I was feeling was its fear or hopelessness or both. Both Jack and Susan go silent on us which makes me more nervous about the conversion I’m going to have with Riya. They look at me with concern-filled eyes and gives me an assuring look that calms my heart and mind.
Even though I talked to them today only I feel some type of connection has formed with them I didn't even feel it when I made friends with Katy. It feels like I formed a bond with them in such a short time and knowing someone in here cares for me and my safety. they are there for me behind my back praying for the best for me I can see that in their eyes. Even if my own family was present here they would never care about me as much as these two cared for me at present.
And the irony of this situation is a stranger that I meet today is more worried for me then my own family. And whatever situation I'm currently in is because of som
“So, is there anything you want me to know or you want to tell me anything, you have a chance now Lisa” she continues with a blank face. “I – I’m... I’m s-sorry” I hide my face from her not having the courage to face her demanding and questioning look. She doesn’t say anything just sits there may be thinking how to break the news to me that I’m fired. “Why are you sorry Lisa?” she questions me. Does she want to hear it from my mouth only? Why? Was it not enough to hear it from others she wants me to tell her everything in detail? I pursue my lips and whisper in a low voice “You must have heard the rumors about me”. “Yes, but I want to know if they are true or not from you only” “Yes, they are true I -” she cuts my sentence in half “So, you are really from that family” “Family? Which family?” Confusion clear on my face what is she talking about when was there any rumor about my family. “Off course Greenwood family” she looks at me expec
Her words give me a glimmer of hope and comfort I needed. I wanted someone to tell me not to mind the others talking behind my back, to stay confident and face whatever comes to me. I'll stand by your side to support you and encourage you. And for a minute I thought she will be there for me when I need her by my side. "You know I wasn't lying when I said you can talk to me any time about your problems" she squeezes my hand "I'm all ears and I'll be happy to guide you as an elder sister, I mean it". I hug her tight as the words leave her mouth I'm very grateful to her, this is exactly what I need at this moment of my life, Thank you I say hoping my sincerity reaching her. “Thank you so much I needed that” I express my gratitude towards her earning a pat on my shoulder. “Now what is this about the scheming sister you have mind explaining to me,” she says look of anger crawling back to her face, and I’m glad to know it is not directed at me. I hesitate f
When I was in my own world Riya brought me back to the present time. “Do you remember anything about that person or what room did he stay in we can find out who is he and make a complaint about him”I try to remember anything that could help us with this but nothing comes to my mind so I shake my head at her “No, I don’t remember anything it’s very vague I don’t remember much I only remember the brown eyes of that person and…” I furrow my eyebrows trying to catch something which passes fast through my mind “or was it red?”“Red? You are saying you saw red eyes?” Riya questions me seriously, then there it is that look she knows something that I don’t know. I want to ask her what it is that she knows but not telling me but I fear it may be something I don’t want to know or something she doesn’t want to tell me.“I don’t know maybe brown Who has red eyes anyway&rd
Don’t worry so much about this to tell you exactly this mark is very important and many covet for this mark and you go this even without trying and once given I can’t be taken by any other person so it may bring danger to you because of jealousy.Just try to hide the mark and everything will be fine she gives me a reassuring smile to calm me which the job. She handed me the concealer she has in her table drawer to apply for now it was not the correct shade for my skin color she is a little tanned whereas I was a very pale color. But it did the job of covering the mark for now.Thank god I wore a turtle neck today for class so nobody could see those bruises and marks of yesterday on my body. If everyone has seen the mark on the mark would I be alive right now? A shudder runs through my body at that thought.I leave the room with many emotions: curiosity, frustration, fear, uncertainty, and anger. What should I do now? This mark can bring danger to my
Christian’s POVI Couldn’t control the urge to see her so I go up to take fresh air. The scenery from the top floor is too beautiful it is my favorite spot in our home. When I look from there I can see a dense forest the cool and clear air without any pollution is heaven. The fresh smell of the mud and trees clams my mind when I’m restless.I walk up the stairs remembering that girl my mate now. I smile forms automatically when her face comes into my mind. I couldn’t take her flushed face from my mind it’s becoming very difficult to concentrate on anything other than her.* * * * * * * * * *She is constantly on my mind, when Alex came to greet me in the morning I was very distracted by her thought that I barely heard any report he presented about the company and board of directors.He even asked me in the middle when I was spacing out smiling like a fool in front of all “What got you all mussy and giddy that you
My heart stopped for a second when she goes unconscious in my hands but from my mate bond I know she is alive which calms me. I scream for Riya in my head “SHIT, RIYA WHERE ARE YOU? COME OUT... RIGHT NOW” I know she will flinch at my words because I’m sure I was so loud and she wouldn’t have expected me to do that now. but do I care?She comes out just as I stop screaming at her. The door burst open with a thud and she comes out panicking. She stops when she sees Elizabeth unconscious in my arms and then comes rushing to us “What happened to her?” she looks at her looking for any injuries.“Ohh common she is just faking it just to be in Mr. Fords harms what in earth could happen to that country bumpkin” the girl next to me talks before I could explain anything to Riya anger surges through my body at her words but she is in her dreamland oblivion to anything muttering some nonsense “Really why didn’t I think of
The doctor does a check-up as I and Riya stand to the side looking at her. When he is done, he turns to us and askes “Did she had her food today?” questioning us.“We don’t know doctor, She is not a full-time worker here but a student who works as a part-timer. I don’t know if she had had her breakfast and lunch” Riya says “maybe we can ask if the other two who studies with her in her college who works here” She suggests.Doctor nods to the suggestion and Riya leaves the room in search of those two she was talking about. “Is everything okay doctor? She was just standing one minute ago and the next thing she goes unconscious. Is there any problem?” I enquire the doctor in the hope of getting any answers to my questions.“I don’t know exactly is the reason for her to go unconscious suddenly, it may be because of exhaustion because she must have missed her lunch or she must have gone through so
I take Elizabeth in my arms walking out of the room nodding at the two of them “Common on Riya we need to get going” I call Riya. She follows behind my back and I hear the other two steps, looks like they are worried for their friend. A smile forms on my face when I see someone else cares for my mate and worries about her well being makes me happy. When I’m not with her she will have someone to look after her. There is a small pain in my heart but there is also a relief.I reach my car and turn to Riya to ask her to open the door because my hands are full. But when I turn she is not there instead I see Susan and Jack. Susan comes forward to open the door. Riya comes out with the doctor at this time. I wanted to scold her for leaving without informing me but when I see the doctor with her my tongue is tied.She knows me enough to know what I’m thinking and gives me a sly look. I ignore her and get into the car with my beauty in my hands. She ente
