He was so handsome she regretted spouting so much nonsense to him. She felt jealousy that he held someone so dear in his heart and yet he was marrying her just to spite her. Being used by him was just painful and she could only just vent out on him.
“You are tired, return to your room now,” he said.
“Goodnight,” she said and turned her back on him.
She knew he was angry and she was very sorry about it but she was glad that she said it or else she won’t be able to sleep well that night.
She entered her room and removed the evening dress she wore that night and changed into her night wear. The moon was shining so brightly in the night sky and she couldn’t leave her room but just admire it through the window.
She looked at the moon and began to meditate the words her nana told her the night she saw her. The more she said them the more she felt very calm. After that she crawled into her bed and slept.
Talia had breakfast in her room; she didn’t feel like leaving at all. After her breakfast she began to watch TV, she had given up on Neal. After what had happened the previous night there was no way he was going to take her out that day. She was probably going to see him on her wedding day, the next day.
Busy enjoying the show on her screen, there was a knock.
“Please, enter,” she called out not wanting to stand up.
The door opened and Jane walked in holding a huge box.
“Good morning, Your Highness.”
“Jane, what are you doing here early this morning?” she asked.
“I come bearing gifts,” she said.
“Prince Neal, he said you should put it on. He will be waiting for you.”
She quickly stood up and opened the box. She was amazed by its contents. She took the t-shirt out and the shorts that followed.
“Am I allowed to wear this?” she asked Jane.
“You are; he bought it for you after all.”
“Then I won’t waste it,” she said happily and ran to the bathroom and changed into the clothes Neal had bought for her.
She missed wearing like this and it felt so good. She came out and Jane was still there.
“You look like Talia that I know,” she said with a huge smile on her face.
“It shocked me too. Where is he?”
“At the entrance; have a nice day.”
“You too, Jane.”
Talia walked with quick steps and took the elevator to the ground floor. She found Neal standing by his McLaren P1; it was a very beautiful car worth millions of dollars. The benefits of being rich, you could have anything you want. He smiled at her to her surprise and reached out his hand for hers.
She extended her hand and he helped her into the car. She put on the seatbelt while he helped himself.
“You look gorgeous,” he said as he starts the engine.
“You too and thank you for the clothes.”
“I’m glad you like them.”
“I thought you would be angry at me and cancel the date.”
“I wouldn’t. I made a promise and I should keep it. You said it yourself; I made the bed so I should lie in it.”
“I’m sorry about that.”
“I know. For now, let’s forget about all that and go out and have some fun.”
Neal drove out of the palace with two more cars behind them.
“I noticed that you don’t have a phone so we should rectify that.”
“There is no need really.”
“There is, you will be my wife tomorrow and it won’t be appropriate if you don’t own a phone. What kind of a husband would that make me?”
She smiled hearing that, he was a considerate guy after all.
“Whatever you say, I will do it.”
“That’s my girl,” he said and stepped on the accelerator.
“Don’t drive fast, we might…”
“Don’t ever say that again. It will bring bad luck,” he said looking at her.
“I won’t then.”
She sat there in the car listening to music as Neal drove them. Neal finally stopped at the city’s biggest shopping mall. It was filled with people and she wondered why he had to bring them here of all places.
“Do you want people to tramp all over me?”
“They wouldn’t dare and it won’t do you any good to be stuck in the palace. How about we give people something new to talk about?”
“I can’t believe you at all.”
“Come, let’s have some fun.”
She placed her hand in his as he guided her through the mall. If it wasn’t because of the guards shielding them form the civilian then it was going to be difficult.
“I shouldn’t have worn this at all,” she said thinking of her costume.
“You should dress your age despite of who you are. Just forget about everything and have fun with me okay?”
“You have to buy me something first if you want that.”
“Now you are talking. What do you want?”
“I will show you if I see it.”
“It’s a deal, now let’s go to that shop,” he said pointing to a shop selling cell phones.
They entered the shop and there were a variety of them all over. She never really had much money to buy a new phone before. The last time she bought one, it got lost.
“Aren’t you going to pick one?”“Just choose what you think will be good,” she said.Neal after a long consideration picked a black slim cell with a nice rear and front camera. While he paid for it, she was busy looking at the phone covers. She had always wanted to have a matching cover with her boyfriend if she ever had one. Now that she skipped from a boyfriend to a husband, will she have her dream fulfilled?“What’s on your mind?” he asked her.“Can you buy that for me?” she asked looking at the covers.Neal smiled and asked the sales attendant for the covers.“You want matching covers?”She couldn’t answer that question at all, she felt very embarrassed.“I will buy them for you,” he said and paid for them.When the phone got registered as well as the SIM card, the attendant put the cover on and she was happy. Neal took his phon
Neal was still a university student at the capital biggest university. He was in his third year. It was the royal family’s tradition for every prince to marry before he turns twenty-one years of age. The ceremony was arriving for him to choose his bride and the only person he could choose was Chloe. He had promised to make her his in front of everyone. Make everyone bow to her and respect her.A week before the ceremony he decided to surprise her at her house. He didn’t call in advance and just went there. What he wasn’t expecting was to see his girlfriend and best friend making out as if it was normal. He was speechless and couldn’t confront them at all.The only thing he could do was simply to withdraw and act as if he never saw it. He planned to trample on the promise he made and make sure that she suffers the most humiliation she could ever get in her life. She stomped on his heart and he was going to do this same too.As if everythin
“So, it’s true, now you can’t even defend yourself. I saw you with my own eyes and couldn’t ask you at all. I wanted you to feel the same pain I did when I found out about you two. Just leave me alone Chloe.I will not tell anyone about it to show you some respect because of our past affection but from now on please stay away from me as possible. I have a wife I need to care about.”“Don’t do this to me Neal, please. I’m sorry, it just happened.”“I don’t care how it happened really. I just want you out of my sight or else I will tell every media outlet there about you and see whether you can walk holding your head high,” he threatened her.Chloe wiped away her tears and withdrew from the class. He slapped the book on the table and closed her eyes. It was really painful; he loves her but he just couldn’t do anything about it now.“Neal!” Jasper his other
Her son kept avoiding Talia so she had to threaten him so that he could spend some time with her. If left alone for too long, she didn’t know what the end would be like.She left her hall and went to where her husband and king were.“Did the Priestess left?”“Yes, she did.”“So, it’s finally happening?”“Yes, it is.”“For the first time our son did something good.”“Yes, he did. Do you think we should tell him?”“No, we mustn’t. They should be able to talk it out themselves. Let us not interfere and let the kids settle this among themselves.”“That is true my love. Let’s wait and see where it will lead us. I have to take the beads out now. You should rest early; it will be a very long day tomorrow.”“It will be. It’s been so long since we had a huge event like this.”&ldq
Her nanaba had warned her that it would come announced but she never thought it would come now. She closed her eyes and began to meditate when she suddenly fell into a slumber. It was like a dream but it felt so real. She saw the back of a woman walking; she looked old from the back considering the silver hair.She was curious so she followed her for a long time before the woman suddenly stopped and picked a peony flower and turned around. She was surprised that she fell to the ground. She looked exactly like her, how was that even possible?“Who are you?” she asked the woman.“I am you and you are me,” she answered her.“What’s happening here?”“Take this,” she said giving her the flower and she stood up and took it.“I’m going to tell you a story, everything is true so pay attention because we don’t have much time,” she said.She nodded her head in respons
Her hair was pinned nicely behind her back before the diamond tiara on her head.“It’s time, they are waiting.”Talia was escorted out of the changing and straight to the hall where she found her nanaba looking gorgeous as always.“You look beautiful, my child,” she said kissing her cheeks.“Thank you, nanaba.”“Let’s go inside, a lot of people are waiting.”“Let’s get this over with.”Her nanaba took her arm in hers and the doors opened. The orchestra was playing the wedding march while she walked down the aisle. Her husband Neal was standing in the front in a gorgeous black tuxedo. He was a very handsome man indeed. Her nanaba handed her over to Neal who took her hand and the two faced the Arch Bishop.They took their vows in front of everyone in the modern way and exchanged the wedding bands.“I now pronounce you husband and wife, prin
The chariot passed through many roads and from time to time they waved until they reached the palace. At the place their bags were already packed and the car was waiting.The car took them to the airport where the royal jet was waiting for them. After settling the jet was airborne. Because she was tired, she just closed her eyes forgetting that she had not eaten anything and slept.She had another dream again. She saw the silver haired lady again, holding the seven-gem bead bracelet in her left hand and using her right hand to touch people.She could see and hear their thoughts, their pasts and future. It was as if the bracelet was a guide that helped her to maneuver well. The woman kept doing that to people and telling them words that brought them hope and it was beautiful.She avoided telling them the sad parts and tells them how to avoid some calamities too. If her gift was the same as the silver haired lady then she really had a huge job to do.
“I have never done this before,” Talia confessed as she stood right in front of him after their romantic dinner in the royal villa, they were residing in for their one-week honey moon.He could tell she was scared and innocent. He had only slept with one woman and now he had to consummate his marriage or else all hell will break loose. Talia was likeable and he had no doubt she would be just the right one for him now.Neal titled her chin up and gazed into those emerald green eyes.“You don’t know have to know how to do anything,” he said sliding his and along her jaw and down her throat, where he could feel the wild beat of her pulse. Her heart raced, drumming through his fingernails.“I know what to do, this is my job,” he reassured her.Dipping his head, he kissed the side of her neck, her jaw and then the corner of her lips. Her lower lip quivered and he kissed the quiver.Talia shivered as Neal
