“So, boss actually hired a babysitter for you” Ivan asked raising an amused eyebrow at me. I had to fight back punching him in the face for his comment. But he was right to be amused. Hell, I wouldn’t have dropped the subject if it was him dealing with this.
“Unfortunately, and the girl didn’t even know that she was handling an adult. You should have seen her expression, she was about to burst into fire. I honestly thought that she would” I rolled my eyes making Ivan laugh. The two of us were at the gym, well, the gym was in the house. But it was still a gym, warming up before we started boxing. I needed something to let my anger out, and it seemed like Ivan was also in the same situation “what’s up with you?”
“What do you mean?” Ivan asked frowning in confusion.
“Oh, cut it, you’ve been quiet all morning. Not to mention that you barely ate anything, you wouldn’t even engage in any conversation. What’s wrong?” I asked my best friend. I knew that he had a fight with his girlfriend last night, everyone in the house heard their loud yelling last night “is it about Natasha?”
“She asked for a break last night. She doesn’t want to see me around her, nor does she want to talk to me” Ivan explained and I frowned in confusion. Natasha had grown up along outside as kids, she was practically the sister my mom didn’t give birth to. Her and Ivan have been a couple for as long as I can remember. Therefore, it surprised me that she would suddenly ask for a break “she believes that I cheated on her, despite trying time and time to tell her that I haven’t. It got out of control yesterday and the two of us hurt one another, I’m not sure how it would end up. But I’m also not stupid as not to see or realize that we’re hitting rock bottom”
“Come on, Ivan. The two of you have been together for years…”
“That is what’s bothering me! We’ve been together for years and she can’t find it in her to trust me” Ivan said looking me in the eye “if she can’t trust me, can’t trust that I wouldn’t even think of looking at a different girl whether or not she was around. What’s the point in all of this?”
“True, but you can’t blame the girl for being jealous or worried, Ivan. She’s not stupid, she knows what we see and do on a daily basis. The fact that she would fear you looking at a different girl. Yes, I understand that you’re angry, and I understand that you’re upset with what happened. But put yourself in her shoes, you knowing that you go to see girls which are naked, yes, it’s not your choice. It’s who we are, but she’s a woman…”
“I have been with her for years! If I wanted to look at a different girl, I would’ve when I was twenty, when we FIRST started dating. Not when I’m twenty-eight and we’ve been together for the past eight years” Ivan said stopping me. I sighed and put my hand on his shoulder, squeezing it gently.
“Do you really not see that she’s not been okay lately?” I asked Ivan softly. I knew the reason to why Natasha’s been upset lately. The fact that she was frightened of Ivan’s reaction, her fearing leaving him if he finds out. Though I’ve assured her that he wouldn’t, that she would be treated as his princess and queen. That he loves her too deeply to leave her, she was still frightened, and that had her insecurities rise to the sky.
“What do you mean?”
“Natasha is pregnant, Ivan” I said looking my best friend in the eye. His brown eyes widened as he processed my words and I nodded smiling at him. Natasha had come to me a few weeks ago, asking me to take her to the hospital for not feeling well. I wouldn’t lie when I said that I haven’t noticed that she wasn’t okay. She was getting frequent nauseas, and I was also aware that her pressure dropped once. She claimed to be okay and refused to go to the hospital, but this time, it was her who asked to go.
The two of us found out about her pregnancy at the hospital that day, I couldn’t describe my happiness. She was also excited about it, until we found out that Ivan was shot. She had almost lost the baby that night and had asked me not to tell Ivan about it, as days went by, she grew frightened of telling him. Frightened that she could lose him if she told him, and respecting her decision, I kept her pregnancy from my best friend for her to be ready to tell him.
“Tasha? My baby, is pregnant?”
“Weren’t you two on break?” I smirked raising an eyebrow. Ivan glared at me and I had to fight back a laugh at his change of demeanor. He smiled and I wrapped my arms around him, giving him a hug before nodding at him to leave the gym and go to his girlfriend. The two had to make up, I knew that they wouldn’t be able to handle being away from one another for long anyway.
Ivan walked toward the door and left the gym without any other words, leaving me to do my own workout. The door to the gym was opened making me frown in confusion “Ivan, you couldn’t have possibly gone… oh, it’s you”
I raised an eyebrow at Kiara who stood in front of me. Her eyes met mine and her eyes remained cold and void of emotions, my own expression sharing the same coldness “we started off on a wrong foot, I apologize for being as rude as I was”
I raised an eyebrow at her but didn’t answer for a second before a laugh escaped my lips making her frown in confusion. I myself frowned in confusion at the fact that she was being serious about this “you can’t be seriously apologizing…”
“I am, I was rude, and it wasn’t your fault. So, I’m sorry…”
“You are one weird girl, but sure” I shrugged not knowing what to tell her. She raised an eyebrow at me. I smirked at her and raised my hands at her revealing my boxing gloves “interested?”
“In?” She asked frowning in confusion and I smirked. A devious plan coming into my mind at how I could scare her off, I had to get her off my back if I wanted to do what I wanted freely without having her report every move I made to dad. That would just be a pain in the ass and it was something that I didn’t want to handle or deal with.
“Boxing? I can teach you if you want”
“Against you? No, thank you” she said shaking her head and I smirked making her raise an eyebrow at me “no”
“Well, for starters, I’d like to keep my body parts, and I don’t want to end up with a bruise or a broken limb” she said crossing her arms over her chest.
“I’ll be easy, we’ll just simply have a small fight after I’ve taught you a few tricks” I said throwing gloves at her. She had changed her clothes into grey sweat pants and a V-neck baby blue shirt. She shook her head at me and entered the ring ignoring the boxing bag which was behind me making me raise an eyebrow.
“Me not wanting to fight you, doesn’t mean that I don’t know how to fight, Alessio” she said rolling her eyes at me. My eyes met hers and I smirked following her into the ring as she hung the gloves on the ring’s ropes. Fisting her small hands making me raise an eyebrow and follow her in suit.
The two of us positioned ourselves before I punched, the punch was supposed to hit her right shoulder. However, I was surprised when she blocked the punch and twisted my hand for a second before letting it go and taking a step back. I raised an eyebrow at her and nodded, before going to attack again. This time she kneeled down and avoided my punch again before getting up and punching my abdomen.
This time, it was her turn to smile. Checking her nails, she looked at me and nodded. The two of us going all out on one another, punch after punch was either blocked or punched back, until she kicked my leg making me fall on the ground and getting on top of me, straddling my waist. Her arm raised and her hand fisted as if she was going to punch me in the face. My eyes widened and I breathed heavily as I looked at her dropping her hand on her lap. I smirked and sat up, wrapping my arm around her waist keeping her in place as I looked her in the eye “not the smartest move you could make, pretty face”
“I thought that I was dumb blonde?” she said raising an eyebrow at me. Her blonde hair which was initially tied in a ponytail was now open and loose over her shoulders as her hairband loosened and she eventually removed it and put the band on her wrist.
Kiara:I raised an eyebrow at Alessio’s poor attempt of scaring me.The fact that he actually believed that he could frighten me with a single boxing match made me want to laugh. But the man didn’t know who I was, he believed that I was some psychologist that would fear getting punched by a man. However, that was nowhere near being true.I grew up doing so many different sports that people believed that I was to end up being a professional athlete. That wasn’t the case though. Dad had made sure that I trained well, that I knew how to defend myself if needed, and that I could fight even the strongest of men. Why? Well, simply because of who he was. People, weren’t nice, at least that’s what he always told me.He had always been protective as hell about my security and safety. I never understood why he had made sure that I trained when he always had someone behind me watching over my back, and even when I did question the fact,
Alessio: Three inch? She just literally claimed that I’m three inched? Well, she’ll know what three inches are when I’m shoved deep inside her! I put my tapped my fingers against the table as we sat on the dining table for dinner. Little miss know it all decided to go out, therefore, I couldn’t technically give her a piece of my mind yet. However, I wasn’t going to, not yet anyway. She would be begging for it. I would be sure of that. “What’s gotten your panties in a twist?” Ivan asked raising an eyebrow at me. Natasha sat by his side as the two obviously made up. I was glad that they did, the fact that they were fighting was something that no one liked in the house, especially after all this time. “He couldn’t accept that his babysitter claimed that she wouldn’t be turned on by his three inched dick” Arda said making dad choke on his drink. His eyes widened in surprise and I could tell that he was fighting back a laugh which m
Kiara: “Alessio, the woman left you alone for an hour on her first day. For fucking crying out loud!” I heard Mr. Damien snap at his son, I had just entered the house having come back from walking around a few cafés, none of them had caught my attention. Therefore, I decided to go back to the Estate “I swear, I don’t even know how you’re my heir of all of this…” “You are not taking action, you are not doing anything to avenge mom. I will not let her blood go in vain, I told you once and I will tell you again, every man who comes in my way from that bastard’s side is a dead man before he even blinks…” “You are a…” “You don’t need to remind me of who I am, it is me who has to remind you of who you are. The seat you’re sitting on and your position doesn’t require you to be a pussy!” Alessio snapped. My eyes widened at his choice of words, the two were yelling in the living room, their voices so loud that everyone in the house was quiet. I didn’t dare mak
Alessio:“Where do you think you’re going?” Dad asked the second he saw me walking out of the dining room this morning. I have been ignoring him since last night and he has been making sure to avoid me since. He wouldn’t even join us on the table, and everyone in the house knew that I didn’t want to look at or speak to him, and I knew that the feelings were mutual. The two of us had been like that for years now, and the older I grew, the harder it was for dad to hold control over me. Knowing it was wrong didn’t mean that I made matters any easier for him. The older I grew, the more creative I got with the revenge that I wanted to take, that was something that he didn’t understand. Well, maybe he did, he just didn’t want to think about it. His son was supposed to be under HIS control, therefore, if it was heard that he couldn’t control his own son. Things could and would get out of hand, but I wasn’t as dumb as not to
Kiara: To say that these men were scaring me with each passing second wouldn’t be a lie. Alessio kept his eyes on me throughout the entire drive as to study my body language, but having learned how to deal in such situations. I managed to keep myself as calm and quiet as I could as not to stir the man, or give him any hints of fear which he could hold against me. “Where are we going?” I asked after a few minutes of silence. I was trying to process the danger that I was in, the fact that Alessio knew that he could hurt me didn’t escape my mind. The man was three times my size, and not to mention that he wasn’t alone. The three men could kill me in a second if they put their minds to it. Just the thought of that made me look out the window as I thought of the dangerous game that I was playing. Maybe this wasn’t a good idea after all. Nonetheless, there was no turning back now. I needed to do this, I wanted to prove to myself and dad that I can d
Alessio:“His body was delivered, boss” one of my men, Dimitri, said as I sat in my office. Having been waiting for the news since yesterday, I wondered about his reaction. But then again he was the last man to have a reaction when it came to anything concerning anyone but himself. Dimitri has been the one to make the call to me to come to the office when he first got the news. He also knew that he couldn’t technically say it out loud, therefore, calling us here was the better option.“Has he said anything about it? Orr was it as we expected?” I asked despite already knowing the answer. It was a case common between such men who had NO weaknesses, however, usually a the weakness would be your child. But he had proved to us years ago that he had no weaknesses toward his OWN bloodline when he called in the men to rape his daughter right in front of him.“Not a single word, boss, at least for now” Dimitri said. I nodded dism
Kiara: To say that I was annoyed would be an understatement, first the bastard Jeremiah tried kissing me, and now this bullshit. These men were really playing with my patience, and I didn’t like being toyed. “By all means, Aslanov, do make your shot” I said glaring at the man who raised an eyebrow at me. Truth be told, I knew that it was risky, and I knew that it could cost my life. But I wasn’t stupid, he was well aware of the trouble that he would get into if a single hair on my head was harmed and I knew that he wouldn’t want to deal with such matters. It would simply cause him an unwanted headache. “Really? If you’re counting on dad to stop me, then you are very wrong, malyshka” Baby girl. Alessio smirked and I laughed in a mocking manner. “Sure, I would be counting on your father for my safety” I said sarcastically before I glared at the man “do you really believe that I’m as stupid as to count on a mafia man who I don’t know? Really, Ale
Alessio:“Boss, what are we going to do with this?” Ivan asked looking at the information we found about Kiara’s dad, Kyle Anderson…“Nothing, for now, we’ll do nothing” I said looking at Kiara who was unconscious on my couch. Her chest rose and fell as she breathed, having made sure to knock her out without technically hurting her. I had to know who this woman was, and doing it while she was awake was not something that I wanted to do, especially knowing who she was and her ability of actually being able to change the information we wanted.“What do you mean by nothing, Alessio? The woman could be dangerous…”“She was telling the truth, Ivan. The girl doesn’t know of what her father does” I said stopping Ivan who frowned in confusion at the sureness of my tone. But a girl like her would have nothing to lose, and if she claimed that the man had killed her mom. Why would she st
