"How are you? You scared me." Caitlyn rushed towards me; she was reluctant to hug or maintain curtsy since we were standing around the royalties.
My heart beats staggered. Familiar warmth came from her that reminded me of my dad. I smiled and held her hands in mine, squeezing them. She was in tears, forcing a smile.
"I am fine, Caitlyn. Thanks to Mr. White. He saved me." I said and regretted it when she panicked.
"Saved? What happened? I want to know about it. And thank you Mister for keeping my lady safe." Caitlyn said to Robert, bowing slightly.
Robert was flustered. He looked nervous and I just smiled at him to let him know it will be okay.
Soon, a towel was wrapped around me and we headed upstairs when Alexander came to greet me.
"Elma! I am glad you came back safely. Was this the man who saved you?" He asked and I nodded.
He nodded and smiled at Robert who seemed to pass out any minute.
Elma's POV"Princess Elma!"Groaning, I opened my eyes and struggled to find the source of this voice. It sounded unfamiliar."Sir White, please ask the female marshal to come here, at once."I touched my head subconsciously and felt something warm. Bringing it to my face, it was surprising to see blood. Suddenly, I remembered everything.I sat straight and finally spotted Caitlyn with a tensed face."Princess Elma! You're awake." She sighed in relief."I-I am sorry but I will be back soon." I said and quickly jumped to my feet, taking off in the woods."Elma!" Caitlyn shouted from behind but I was in a hurry."Sorry to worry. I will be quick." I shouted back hoping she could hear; my voice sounded raspy.Sebastian! He might be in trouble. This was the first time he phased and he might not know anything.God! That is terrible…I kept running a
Sebastian's POVThe fuck!I am sitting naked right next to a girl!What more? She is… gorgeous!Yes, I can see…I can see perfectly well. However, I never thought that the first thing that I would be able to see would be extraordinary beauty.My heart is racing crazily. There are tingles under my skin. Despite the small distance between our backs, I can feel her warmth. It was unreasonably making me nervous.Fuck! What a fine impression she would get of me, now. Damn!To sit here in my birthday suit like the day I was born. No, not exactly… that time I was little with no sense of my own plus my… winnie wasn't big. Unlike now… It wouldn't have responded back then but surely will do any second this moment if I don't stop thinking of her."Um… I think I have an idea."My eyebrows lifted and I turned to stare at her
Elma's POV"May I have a word with you, Princess Elma?" The King asked me to follow as soon as I ran into him.My heart was already reeling from the small encounter with Sebastian. I hope Alexander hasn't noticed it; the explanation will be horrific.I clutched the sides of my dress as I quietly followed after him. Why was he even awake at this hour?We were soon in a room that had a sofa, a piano set at one corner and a table with tea cutleries. He gestured to me to take a seat and I obliged. My legs would have given away at any minute."You must be wondering why I called you, right?" He asked and I nodded."Tea?"
Sebastian’s POV“Good morning, Elma! You guys are together?” Derek questioned her as he appeared a bit surprised.“G-good morning, Derek!” Elma blushed slightly and I clicked my tongue in annoyance.Easy!“Anyway, we heard Jonathan would be back today. The King is throwing a party for his welcome. So, we’ll see you after school as well!” Marcus beamed and it only added fuel to my fire.“Yeah! It’s surprising to learn that he will join our class! So sudden, right?” Derek questioned while we made our way to our desks.“Isn’t it obvious what the King is planning? I think they want to train Jonathan to give Seb a hard ti
Sebastian’s POVI met Jonathan right after my arrival from school. He hasn’t changed a bit in nature; in fact has worsened. Regardless, his physique surely changed.This pissed me off for some reason.“Hello, Sebastian! Wow, you’ve grown more handsome.” He complimented but sarcastically.“Hello to you too, Jonathan. You changed too.” I said in a monotone voice; eyeing him closely.The insincerity was still present.Huh! And they want him to compete with me.Thankfully he was called by his mom. When he waved at me, I called out to him–“Don’t fo
Sebastian’s POVDammit!For the past few days I was losing my eyesight once again. It feels terrible now that I have enjoyed my eyesight back. Moreover the thought of someone finding this has made me edgy.As for Jonathan, he is carelessly enjoying his time at this house. Furthermore, his attitude has taken me aback. Jonathan was serious during training and took part in every discussion of the company’s scope and problems.This increased my insecurity. Knowing he is a jolly fellow, I had to be careful.“Prince Sebastian!”I halted recognizing Jonathan’s personal guard’s voice.“Prince Jonathan would l
Elma's POV "I have better things to do!" Sebastian muttered and left with incoherent mumbling.My face dropped and I was about to leave when Jonathan interrupted."Eh excuse me, Elma. Do you have a small crush on my brother? Even though he is always hot headed." He spoke with a calculative glance.Jonathan's words with a hot body dripping water droplets flushed blood straight to my face."What!!!" I almost screamed when I heard them.Was it obvious? I hope not! Not after Alexander's warning."Hahaha… Relax!" He chuckled and my heart beat slowed hearing his marvelous laughter. It was the only natural one I have heard since I came to live with the Goldsman."Nevermind. It's not like I was expecting anything different." I said and passed a soft smile before finally leaving from there.Yet, I could feel Jonathan's gaze at the back of my head. It seemed he had something else to say. Regardless, staying longer there wouldn't be good.Despite o
Elma’s POV Weirdly, it was the usual day in the mansion. I had kept my eyes open to pick any suspicious acts but in vain. Since it was a weekend and we had no school today, I wondered how to approach Sebastian regarding last night. I sighed, feeling an itch on my skin. The softest breeze felt prickly. Unable to handle it any longer, I was about to scratch when I noticed Queen Lara descending the stairs of the great hall. Her sight mesmerizes me. Now that I see, Jonathan is her replica with his forehead as his dad. She is amazing; naturally catching everyone’s attention wherever you go. “Ah! The First Queen was even prettier.” I was startled hearing Caitlyn’s voice. She apologized and continued to organize my schedule for today. She tapped on her tablet swiftly before handing me a glass of
