"Don't ever try something like that again," his voice was void of any emotion as he stood near the door with his back facing me.
I stood on the bed silently when something clicked inside my head.
"You knew!" I whispered but he heard it perfectly even from the distance.
I was no longer sitting on the bed, "What kind of messed up game are you playing? You thought it would be fun to mock me in this way? I have said this before but let me repeat it again, I will run away from you one day and that's a promise, Damien."
Everything happened too fast after I completed the sentence, one minute I was staring at the back of Damien's head, and the next minute I was pinned against the wall.
His face was so close to me that I could feel his minty breath, "You can try to run but I will always catch you, you can try to hide but I will always find you. Get one thing clear, Nora, no matter what road you take it will always lead you to me."
I licked my lips un
The reminder of the memory that I was trying so hard to forget was staring at me through the mirror.I ran my fingers on the bruise softly. The image played in my head one more time which I shook off and dabbed a thick layer of concealer on my neck aggressively.The feeling of betrayal was too much for me to leave the room and had dinner while staring at the face of that smirking devil.Ruhee put the dinner on the table when I was taking a shower. She respected my decision of not talking to her and I was glad about it.Breakfast was the same story as well. But staying inside the room was driving me insane.For the first time, I was alone without Ruhee following me like a shadow. I had a feeling the security was increased after my failed attempt to escape.I was too engrossed in looking at the paintings in the hallway that I didn't notice Amber until I bumped into her.She steadied me by holding both of my arms tightl
After searching every corner of the house I was finally standing in front of the forbidden mahogany door waiting for Damien to open it.Tapping my feet impatiently on the floor, I slammed my palm on the door one more time.There was no reply.Maybe he was not inside....or maybe he knew I was knocking.Slowly I opened the door while arguing with the small voice inside my head. I knew no one was allowed in his library or bedroom. But if I wanted to confront him, I would rather do that in the library.The minute I stepped inside I was sure my mouth was somewhere on the floor. The dark rows of bookshelves soared from the floor to the ceiling. The large window next to the huge desk was spreading natural light from the sun to the front part of the room. There was dim light illuminating the bookshelves. My hand was itching to get a hold of those books.The chandelier in the middle of the room was glowing faintly as it reflected th
The dead silence confirmed my theory.Damien was standing near his desk with his back facing me.I held my breath as I waited for him to say anything, without moving from the couch, "It is true," I whispered but the words were not meant for himThe words were meant for me to realize the reality, how my life had turned upside down."Get out," he said in a slow tone that caused me to shiver.I stood up from my position but did not leave the room instead I tried to poke the wolf, "Damien...""I said GET OUT!" he growled.Startled by the loud voice I ran outside without blinking. I went to the dining hall silently without glancing in Damien's direction but I could feel his eyes following me like a hawk.Without acknowledging him I sat down in front of Silver, who was too busy with his food to pay attention towards anyone."Silver, at least chew your food," Amber's rich voice came, who was sitting next to Damien with a fruit bowl in front of her.Silver put a big bite of pancake in his mouth while looking at Amber with a mocking smile."Real mature of you."Silver's plate was nearly empty, he picked up a pea and threw it at Amber which hit her between the forehead earning a growl."Enough, both of you," Damien said lazily as he took a bite of his breakfast.Silver gave a short laugh as he stood up ready to leave giving me a wink.I gave him a smile in return.There was one empty seat between me and Amber but I could clearly see her hand moving upward on Damien's thigh slowly. She was l

"He said what?!" Silver paused the movie and turned to give his whole attention to me. I gave him an awkward smile, the one in which I tried to smile but it ended up looking like an uncomfortable excuse for a smile. "You don't understand," he paused, "Damien never apologizes. All these years I have been through so much trouble because of him but not even once has that man apologized." I shared everything with Silver. It was because of his motivation I confronted Damien, which did not turn out amazing but at least I was no longer throwing darts in the dark. "One sorry does not change anything." "If he is wrong you are not right either," Silver arched his perfectly shaped eyebrows. "Of course you are going to take your friend's side," I scoffed and sat more comfortably on my soft seat. "It is not about taking sides. I am not saying he is infallible, he has made some questionable decisions but you have to try to know
I was about to walk out of the door when I bumped into Ruhee.With a small gasp, I took a step back, "Are you okay?"She nodded with a smile."You scared me. What are you doing here?"Amber usually kept Ruhee occupied with her work during the noon."I did not have any work to do and I thought we should spend some time together."I looked at her skeptically. She had the same smile glued to her lips, she was twirling the ends of her hair."Sure. I was just going to the garden we can...""No," she said suddenly.I could feel the frown forming on my forehead. Something was not right here."I meant it is so hot outside let's just stay here," she invited herself in and closed the door without waiting for my reply.Confused by her actions I followed her silently."Is everything alright?" I asked when she closed the window as well."Yes, everything is just perfect," the tone was the
I wiped my hands on the jeans as I looked at the intimidating building in front of my eyes.I thought Damien's mansion was big but the palace was making it look ordinary.So many symmetrically arranged large dark windows on the tall grey walls of stones were staring at me making me feel minuscule. The palace had towers on the right and left ends.The black rumbling clouds floating over the palace were giving it a dark aura.I glanced at Damien who had a cold mask on his face."C'mon."With a frown, I was looking at his hand in front of me."I am not here by my choice and I am not going inside holding your hand pretending to be a happy couple.""For once can you not make things so hard.""Oh, I am the one...""Guys shut up, I am pretty sure everyone can hear you both," Silver nodded towards the big black door.The door opened slowly and my heart jumped.Damien grumbled somethin
My room was no different from the pristine palace, it had a huge bed in the middle, the same walls reminding me of winters with golden designs around the borders. But in this room, the golden borders were flowers that were carved to look so realistic that I wanted to run my fingers on them to make sure they were not real.Even the furniture was shining so bright that I was afraid of touching it.Ruhee was closing the thick red curtains of the large window with difficulty."Don't close it."Ruhee stopped, "The prince has asked me to keep it closed until everyone knows about you."Letting out air from my mouth, I sat down on the bed. It felt like I was sitting on the cloud. I ran my hand on the soft fabric, just thinking
