I woke up to find myself surrounded by people.
Their voices rang in my head despite them practically whispering.
I frowned and struggled to open my eyes only to find myself on a hospital bed, the voices belonged to Thomas, Grace, Arda, and Natasha. Alessio, Damien, and Artur were also here. However, all three men were quiet.
Alessio’s eyes had dark circles under them from lack of sleep, his expression softening when he caught my open eyes. Getting up from the couch he was sitting on, he walked toward me catching everyone’s attention before he leaned I and kissed my forehead. I could barely feel my body, but the pain that was in my chest was enough to break a grown man, and judging by Artur’s expression, he either knew the reason behind my pain, or he was feeling the same one.
Trying to sit up, Alessio softly pushed me down not allowing me to “you barely got out of surgery a few hours ago, malyshka, you need to rest&rd
Alessio:“Anything?” I asked Ivan walking inside the basement to find him pulling Alexandra’s head out of the bucket of water.“Not a thing, the woman is as stubborn as you are, if not more. But don’t worry, she’ll crack eventually” Ivan answered as Alexandra coughed twice. She glared at him before spitting on his face making him raise an eyebrow “stubborn, traitor, and stupid…”“Ivan” I said raising a hand stopping him from going on “can you leave us alone?”Ivan raised an eyebrow but I nodded again, Alexei who was helping Ivan walked out with him leaving me and my sister to sit alone in the basement. I sighed and walked behind her, she tensed fearing that I would be the one tormenting her, but I wouldn’t be able to do so, not yet anyway.I untied her hands then got on my knees in front of her, my eyes fixed on hers as she frowned in confusion while I untied
Kiara:The funeral happened three days after Alexandra was buried.Alessio had made sure that everything was taken care of, and despite the pain that the family was in, the man remained as tough and strong as a lion. Alessio had made sure that Alexandra’s betrayal wasn’t mentioned anywhere, she was remembered as an Aslanov family member, a family member who wasn’t spoken about. No one outside the family members knew of what happened, and Alessio made sure to make everyone mind his limits when it came to the topic.He would wrap his arms around me to breakdown at night. His walls falling apart for me to help him mend his broken wounds. I would admit that it hurt me seeing him in such a state, but I managed to stay strong for his sake. Ignoring the shock that I was feeling about everything that I’ve learned in a short span of time, I stood strong for my husband.We had just arrived home and Damien walked straight to his office, Artur
Alessio:I ran my finger through my wife’s exposed thigh as she slept in my arms.The two of us have been in mom’s study room for a while now, I had wanted to be there alone. But Kiara had refused to let me live my pain alone, she knew that I would be here to hide my pain away, and it was something that she hadn’t allowed since Alex had died.Her and I have spent a few nights at numerous hotels in the past month, however, I knew that with us staying there, it was impossible for me to run away from the pain that I was living. Thankfully, Kiara had been supportive to me through it all.I kissed her temple as she slept, her hand was under her head over my chest and I couldn’t help but smile at the sight of her looking as innocent as she did. Her angelic face relaxed despite the pain she too was in.It amazed me how she was able to help mend my pain when she should have been focusing on her own as well. She hadn’t brought
Kiara:“Easy there, girl” I smiled patting my horse as she came to a stop.I leaned down to kiss her neck and smiled scratching her hair twice “now, I’m jealous”I laughed turning to face my husband who was standing in front of the fence of the field. His arms were crossed over his chest as he watched me walk toward him. Angel ignoring the fact that I was on top of her, walked toward him and he smiled run his hand over her head as he pat her softly.“How’d you know that I was here?” I asked raising an eyebrow.“Do I not know my wife?” Alessio teased making me smile. I got down from on top of Angel, taking her reins in my hand as not to have her run around the field, she tended to do that when she was left loose, and pat the beauty’s neck before walking to my husband.His hand cupped my cheek as he gave me a soft, gentle kiss on the lips. I smiled into the kiss before the two o
Alessio:I had my arm wrapped around my beauty’s waist as the two of us sat on the sitting room’s couch, watching a movie.We didn’t want to go down to the living room, knowing that everyone would be there. Therefore, we decided to stay in the sitting room that was on our floor. Having modified it recently, it was where we spent most of our time if we weren’t in the bedroom.I kissed my beauty’s temple and she smiled looking up at me, the love bite on her neck exposed for everyone’s eyes to see, and no matter how hard she tried covering it, I didn’t allow her to. It was one of my ways of letting everyone know that she was mine, though everyone already knew that, I wasn’t concerned about the family members though.“Alessio…” Alexei said walking up the stairs making me frown in confusion “boss wants to see you in his office”“Who’d you kill this time?” Ki
“It seems like you’ve failed this one, Tatiana” Kyle said looking at his lover, or in other words, slave.She let out a silent laugh before raising an eyebrow at him, her eyes studying his expression as she waited for him to insult her one more time. She knew that he could do nothing at this point, he too has failed their boss’s assignment.“It seems like a cat bit your tongue? Or has seeing your daughter softened you up?”“Oh, please, you of all people know that it was always you who had a soft side toward the girl. Had it been up to me, she would have been dead ages ago, but no, you wouldn’t allow me to end her life despite it being easier before” Tatiana said walking past Kyle who grabbed her by the wrist and pulled her to him.“The girl is your daughter, and you may not admit it, but everyone sees the love you have for her in your eyes”“At least I don’t let that love
