"Let me go," she asked softly. She gave him her best damsel in distress look.
Lucas gave her a blank stare. He understood she is pretending to be innocent. He closely observed the woman standing in front of him. Despite her innocent looks, she is not at all innocent. Her ears twitched, indicating that she is trying to gauge her surroundings.
Her senses began to take in her surroundings. She never let her gaze waver from her kidnapper. By the sound of the waves crashing near the shore, she understood that they are near a beach. She tried to listen closely to any other voices to confirm that she is not alone with him. But she could not hear any other human voice or presence nearby.
'Of course, why will he allow anyone else to witness his crime ' she thought feeling the weight of her situation finally sinking on her shoulders.
Lucas turned back to his laptop once again and ignored the woman, or at least he tried to ignore her.
"The door is open, you can go" he pointed out the obvious.
By his utter dismissal of her, she understood he is not buying her act of being an innocent woman.
'Ass*ole' she thought angrily.
Lola is not foolish enough to let her hopes up. If he is showing her the door to leave and is not trying to confine her to a room, then he is not worried that she would escape. But still, she wanted to try something and find out a way to escape from him.
So she ran out of the door not bothering with footwear. She noticed that the mansion she ran away from is located near the beach. There is a balcony as soon as one steps out of the door with wooden flooring and wooden steps to go directly to the beach. There is a deck connected to the balcony with a few lounge chairs placed side by side with side tables on the side. The deck is designed like a mini living area apart from the Lounge chairs. If she is not a captor here, then she would have loved to go for a swim on the beach and relax on the chair with a drink in hand.
Lola walked to the backside of the house and noticed that it is fenced with barbed wires. The backyard is an open area carpeted with neatly trimmed grass. She noticed horses grazing on the far corner and a horse shed a little farther away from there.
"Is it a horse ranch?" she wondered.
Lola roamed all over the place only to find out that they are on an island. Apart from the mansion, she woke up that morning and the horse shed, there is no other construction on the entire island. There are huge trees with some wilder life past the ranch. She and her kidnapper are the only two people on the island, which made her sad. She tried to use her magic, but to her confusion and frustration, her magic is not working on the island. Lola is tired and frustrated.
"I will kill that asshole" she muttered angrily.
After 4 hours, She walked back into the mansion and found him sitting in the same place where she saw him this morning. Lola wanted to kill him or at least threaten to kill him if it means that she would find a way out of here. She picked up a heavy vase from the nearby table. She wanted to hurt him so that he would be injured and easy to control. This is so unlike her original self. She prefers to solve things diplomatically. But this guy is bringing the worst in her.
She approached him from behind and lifted the vase before descending it on his head with as much force as she could muster. But what she didn't expect is for him to move away at the last second. The vase fell on the ground with a loud crashing sound and the pieces flew in all directions.
Lucas looked at the mess she made on the floor. He expected all the possibilities about how she might react, this one is definitely not one of them. He sensed her presence the moment she walked through the door. She looks tired and sweaty. But still, her feminine scent is teasing his senses.
"Are you trying to kill me Lola?" he drawled lazily.
She is taken aback when he called her by her given name, but her anger is stronger than the strange feeling this man is evoking inside her.
"I should have found a knife instead of a vase" she muttered angrily.
Lucas chuckled at her outburst. He was not expecting this from her. A crying woman is the most common scenario he expected. A prim and proper aloof princess who would think crying is beneath her and she would bargain for her freedom coldly is the close second option he had in mind. But Lola proved him wrong. She is neither crying nor cold. What she is doing is something he never imagine she would do. She is smart enough to understand that I am not after money or power. She might have figured out this is something to do with her father. So she trying to gain her freedom by fighting with him. He is amused by her behaviour, to say the least.
"Oh princess, you are as violent as your daddy dearest" he made fun of her.
Lola narrowed her eyes into slits. No one dares to make fun of her, but this asshole is making fun of her father, which she didn't like. Her eyes landed on the Knives neatly placed in their stand. She plucked the knifes one after another and began to throw at him to hurt him.
Lucas is amused by her behaviour until a knife grazed his elbow. His amusement faded and he narrowed his eyes.
"Lola, you will get hurt" he warned her.
His injuries will heal within seconds. He didn't kidnap her to hurt her. She is just a bargaining chip to Michael. He doesn't want her to hurt herself. That thought alone is making him anxious.
When a knife actually grazed him, Lola began to throw the knives with more force and vigour.
"Lola" he warned her with an edge in his voice. When she didn't listen, he erased the distance between them before she could blink and kiss her. Knifes slipped from her fingers with shock. When he tasted her lips, he was addicted. He deepened the kiss by nipping and sucking at her lips.
Lola should not enjoy his kiss like she is doing. Instead of pushing him away, she stood there like a statue. Slowly reality began to trickle in and her eyes widened with shock. She pushed him away and rubbed her lips to erase him from her lips.
"As*hole" she cursed him angrily.
Lucas licked his lips suggestively and smirked at her.
"Try Lucas Princess" he offered his name.
"The name As*hole suits you better" she quipped.
Lucas is having fun with their banter. He was bored with women who fall all over themselves to please him. But this one is trying to kill him.
"Keep this up and I have to kiss you again " he rubbed his lower lip with his thumb for emphasis.
Lola glared at him before stomping away.
He didn't expect her to declare war upon him.
Lucas didn't see Lola for the rest of the day. He didn't bother to go search for her. There is absolutely nowhere she could go. She has to stay on this island until he says otherwise. He dealt with his business working from the island for the rest of the day. The island is his private lair. Apart from his magic, no other magic works here. This is the only place where he can safely hide Lola, without being detected by her father Lucifer. He cooked his dinner alone and ate it by himself. He doesn't like to crowd his private space with people like extra maids and servants. More than a few workers are employed to take care of his horses, and they will come and clean the property if the need arises. He can manage small things like cooking and cleaning after himself. So Lola has to cook her meals if she wants to survive. He is not intending to act like a gracious host. He stocked up the pantry to last for a month. Fresh fruits and vegetables would be
Lola didn't like the look in his eyes. But whatever he planned to do, he should catch her first. She expected his reaction and prepared to escape. "Tsk tsk. Catch me if you can" Lola taunted him and winked to rile him up. That worked like a charm. Lucas narrowed his eyes and took a few steps towards her, only to slide to a stop. He looked down to find oil under his feet. Slowly he raised his head and gave Lola a pointed look. "You shouldn't have done this princess. You will pay for this" he warned her. Lola smirked and left the house with an extra pep in her step. Lucas can easily follow behind her, but where is the fun in that. She will come back and he will be ready for her. Lola wandered aimlessly all over the island, but she didn't find another soul. She munched on the fruits she picked that morning. When the sun began to set, she walked back towards the mansion disheartened that she couldn't find anything to escape from this island.
"Now let's talk about your punishment" he declared, scaring the shit out of her. Lola knows about what kind of punishment he is talking about. Yesterday when he kissed her, she couldn't sleep because all she could think about is his kiss. If one kiss could make her think about it for the whole night, then what would his second kiss do? And moreover, he is the first man who dared to even touch her, let alone kissing. By the look on her face, Lucas understood that she knows what kind of punishment it would be. She is scared by the kiss, which amused him. Women usually bend backwards for his attention, but this one doesn't want to do anything with him. He is already standing near her, and he took a step closer to her to erase the distance between them. Lola took a step back, only to realise that she is trapped between him and the door. Her eyes widened with fear. She tried to dart to her right, but he blocked her path by placing his arms on both side
The next morning, Lucas woke up feeling itchy all over. No matter how much he scratched, he felt itching again. He frowned with confusion."What the hell? why do I feel like my body is on fire?" he thought out loud. That's when he noticed something green peeking from under the bedding. He removed the covers and is shocked to find half-dried leaves lying there. Upon close observation, he noticed what those leaves are."Itching leaves?" he muttered with irritation.These leaves are found on this island and he came across them when he first bought this island. He can easily guess how they came inside his mansion."Lola" he murmured. A slow smile stretched on his lips.This woman is making every day quite interesting. He is eager to see what she would do next and he is looking forward to getting even with her. And then comes her punishment. He frowned at the punishment part. He feels like he is getting too tangled up with this woman.'Am I takin
Lucas decided to work on the patio outside the house. The dining area overlooks the patio, which had tiled flooring and chairs arranged around a small round table. After half an hour, he smelt like something is burning in the house.He frowned.'Is she burning the house down ?' he thought and rushed inside to see what is going on.When he walked inside the kitchen, he is shocked to see the mess she made. The floor and the kitchen counter are littered with broken eggs and eggshells. Her legs and apron are covered with the same. The burning smell is coming from the pan, where she burned the eggs which managed to put in the pan.He never saw someone cook so horribly."What the hell is this?" he asked with shock.Lola looked at him with a frown."I already told you that I don't know how to cook" she mumbled.Lucas rubbed his temples with a heavy sigh. He thought she was lying. So he forced her to cook. He didn't know that she
The next morning, Lucas looked at his blue hair with a sigh. He just came out of the shower and noticed his jet black hair has turned neon blue. "Lola" he muttered to himself. He thought she might not attempt another prank, and strangely that thought made him feel unsettled. He came to enjoy her naughty pranks, even though his expensive expresso machine is ruined. He dressed quickly, as the anticipation of punishing her began to ride high in his veins. When he went down, she is nowhere to be found. ' Where is she? ' he thought with a frown. He casually looked around for her, but he didn't find her in the mansion. 'She must be hiding somewhere. She must have guessed that I will come and punish her. That's why she ran away ' he understood. That thought actually made him smile at her antiques. He poured himself a glass of orange juice before getting back to work. The moment he opened his laptop, water began to ru
Lola is feeling lonely. It's been three days since she ruined his laptop and since then she didn't see him again. He disappeared after that day and she is all alone on this huge island. She doesn't know how to cook and she has been living on fruits and raw vegetables. There is only one apple left, but that's not the reason for which her eyes are watering.Today is her mother's death anniversary and she always used to begin her day by visiting her mother's grave and cleaning it. Her father always used to spend the entire day with her, so that she wouldn't feel sad all alone. This is the first time she is spending her day alone. She couldn't even visit her mother's grave thanks to the as*hole who kidnapped her.Lola is sitting on the sand overlooking the harsh waves which are reflecting her mood. She is feeling so lonely, that she wanted to kill Lucas for doing this to her.When Lucas came back after two days, he found Lola sitting on the beach all alone. He
Lola should not want to hug her kidnapper. But she is so lonely, she wanted some warmth and affection from another person. Sadly, the only person who is available with her right now is her kidnapper."Don't think I will go easy on you because I am hugging you now. As soon as I feel better, I will start annoying you untill you send me back to my house is" Lola warned Lucas.He smiled when he heard her words. He caressed her hair softly. He is feeling guilty. But her words proved that she is indeed a strong woman."I don't expect anything less from you. But can we seize fire for today? I will tell you how my presentation went and you can tell me why you are sad. I mean, if you are intrusted. Let's pretend that we are friends for today" he extended an olive branch.Lola already began to feel better after hugging him. But for a change he is not taunting her or punishing her. He is being gentle and considerate. So she agreed. Moreover she n
