“Do you think it’s too much?” Natalia asked turning around, showing me the blue dress, she wore. She already fixed her makeup, and curled her hair, and was now wearing the dress. The sleeveless dress hugged her body perfectly from the top before loosening under her waist. The slit on the dress reached her mid thigh making it more comfortable for her to walk.
“Not at all, malyshka” I said smiling. I was already wearing my suit’s shirt, and pants, my jacket and tie were left on the couch as I fixed my sleeves.
“Can I ask a question?” She asked avoiding my eyes, her cheeks reddening.
“You know that you don’t need to ask the same question whenever you have one, right?” I teased. Natalia smiled, shaking her head at me “tell me, sweetie?”
“What does malyshka mean?” She asked shyly “you kept calling me that, but I don’t really know what it means&r
Natalia:I looked at Damien as he walked out of the veranda. The man’s eyes were filled with rage, not to mention his racing heartbeat which I could hear due to my sensitive hearing.Damien wrapped his arm around my shoulder the second he reached me, his eyes not meeting mine; though I could hear his racing heart.“Alpha” Sebastian, his beta said looking at him. His brown eyes met my husband’s blue ones, clearly waiting for him to give him whatever other order he wanted to give. Damien, despite having his arm wrapped around me, clenched and unclenched his fist as an attempt to calm himself down.“I want you to check the whole building for the bastard. I don’t want him in the perimeter, and if you do spot him; throw him out, or kill him. Both options work fine for me” Damien said angrily. Sebastian nodded not saying another word as Damien pulled me from where I was standing, walking around the gala as he scanned th
Damien:“What is this place?” Natalia asked looking around the outdoor restaurant I took her to. Her eyes were wide when she saw the table the waiter guided us toward, and having left her jacket at the gala, it was my fault for liking her scent on mine and refusing to go back and getting hers, she was wearing my jacket.I pulled out her chair and watched as she took a seat, smiling at her calm heartbeat before kissing the crown of her head. She let out a breathy laugh as I did, and I walked toward my chair, sitting in front of her. The dim lights around us made the scene a whole lot more romantic than it already was. Flowers were placed on every table as well as candles, the floor was also covered with petals which swarmed around us with the wind giving it a magical aroma.“This, my beauty, is one of the best romantic spots here at New York. I figured since I ruined the night at the gala, might as well make use of it since the night is still yo
Natalia:“Are you sure you’re okay with this, Natalia?” Damien asked cupping my cheeks, making me look at him.“I want to officially meet the family, Damien. Plus, it’s been two weeks since we both got married; I believe that we’ve had enough of a ‘honeymoon’ as it is” I teased. Damien got a call from his mum last night asking him to come home, whatever the reason was; Damien hasn’t discussed it with me, and in all honesty; I didn’t even ask. As for meeting the family, I have barely seen Isabella when they had proposed to me, and my one conversation with Lyov was him asking me whether I was sure about this wedding or not. Sebastian and I spoke at the wedding, and other than that; I was somewhat isolated from everyone, merely seeing them with mum, and making sure that I was on my best behavior as not to ruin the chances of the wedding.Damien nodded, letting me go to close the last bag before wrapp
Damien:“Natalia, you will need…”“I am not like the other women in your Estate, Liz. I must thank you for your offer, but I know that Damien would not go ahead looking at other women. Had he wanted it, he wouldn’t have married me to begin with” I heard Natalia stopping Liz. I smiled as I listened to what she said before knocking the door twice, breaking their conversation. Whatever it was they were talking about, I didn’t like it, and it seemed to annoy Natalia too.Natalia opened the door for me, smiling as I wrapped my arm around her waist, pulling her to my chest “I suggest that you don’t fill my beauty’s head with mom’s nonsense, Liz. You of all people should know that mom did try bringing in other women, and they were all sent back just as they came”“Alpha…”“My love and respect for you are endless, Liz; however, as a friend, I suggest that you
Natalia:“Hey” Liz said entering the room.“Hi” I smiled. She came a while after Damien left, having knocked the door; I already knew it was her as I caught her scent.“I was wondering whether or not you wanted to help us with lunch? I know you’re a bride, but it could help kill time instead of just staying here, and it would be a chance to meet the family as you do?” Liz suggested. I smiled and nodded. Having learned how to cook and bake as a kid, it was something that I both loved doing and had to do as I worked as a waitress and chef to ensure that I could afford going to college; however, that was something that the Leonov family most probably didn’t know.I fixed my shirt and pants. Having showered and changed my clothes after Damien left, I was now wearing sweat pants and a normal V-neck shirt, my hair was tied in a bun, and the only jewel I wore was the wedding ring Damien gave me on our wedding day.<
Damien:“What do you mean, new partner?” I asked glaring at Alberto who showed me a shares contract. My eyes widened and I had to fight back ripping the paper in half as I read through it knowing that he had the original copy of it anyway.“Aunt Isabella sold me a part of her shares of the hotel, and I am now your new partner” Alberto said calmly. Him, Christopher, and I were inside my office right now, and I couldn’t be more thankful for the soundproof walls of this office.“That explains why you showed up at the wedding being confident” I said angrily. Christopher’s eyes met mine and he shook his head at me not wanting me to make any sudden movements. He knew my anger, and he knew that I could easily try shooting the man, and it didn’t matter to me whether or not we were inside the office.“Exactly, it seems like your beloved mother would do anything to fix her relationship with mamma, and beli
Natalia:“You’re still yet to tell me about your argument with mom, Natalia” Damien whispered, his breath hitting my neck as he spoke.The two of us were sitting out on the veranda. His arm wrapped around my waist as he held me to his chest after having dinner, resting his chin over my shoulder, his scruff brushed against my cheek. Seeing as he had a long day at work; I told him to reschedule our run to another day, and we settled to stargazing.I sighed and turned to face him. I didn’t want him getting upset after along day at work, but it seemed like we were going to have the conversation anyway. Damien waited for me to answer him, his expression genuine as he let me know that he wasn’t angry with me about it “I didn’t want to open such a subject after a long day at work. Plus, the woman is your mother, I couldn’t have let you get into an argument with about such a silly matter which I managed to handle, love&rdq
Damien:“Which one?” I heard Natalia ask, snapping me out of my daze as I stared at my phone, knowing who was going to be at the event.She was holding two scarfs to show me, one which was golden, matching her jewels, and one which was black. But I didn’t think she needed any of them, therefore, I shook my head confusing her. She wore a sleeveless white dress, one which hugged her body perfectly, loosening a bit around her hips. Her jewels were a set of crystal earrings, necklace, and bracelet. Plus, her wedding ring.“Little wolf, I already told you that you don’t need a scarf. But if you’re going to keep going in and out of the closet, the two of us are going to be late” I said getting up from the couch. I wrapped my arm around her, and pulled her to the door, ignoring her protest about at least wanting to choose something to cover her breast line, but I didn’t really care about it; she looked beautiful, and that
