I stared at his face, fuming inside. How could he just do things that always favored him in some way or the other?I didn’t want to follow his orders like a slave, because it would mean that I gave in. Which I would never! But he left me no choice.I closed my eyes softly in a sigh and pushed myself out of the car. I didn’t hold his hand and he did not say anything about it. I looked straight ahead and saw the front view of the mansion which was going to be my personal jail now.My personal jail did not look like one as the facade was constructed with beautiful, pigeon white walls and two tall, thick pillars held a roof that shadowed the entrance door. It was strange how I never noticed this much as I was busy saving my ass and neck in the ball.Dominic walked forward and I followed, staying two steps behind him. His broad back moved with a sense of pride and confidence. I couldn’t believe that he was my mate.If we met in general, he would have never laid his eyes on someone like me.
I looked at his finger which had my hair strand twisted on it like a creeper growing on a pillar. Somehow, I felt that the action represented his type of love for me.Twisted.He let go of my hair and pulled his spine back to his ramrod, proud posture. He turned to the lady who was watching us with big eyes as if she saw something out of the place. It indeed was out of the place given the alpha was showing his affections publicly. Most of them preferred to look intimidating.Though, he was one, to say the least. And also shameless!I couldn’t believe I let him carry me like a vegetable sack into the car. Even my parents must have seen that and now if I thought about it, it felt utterly mortifying.He looked back at me and his eyes subtly narrowed, noticing my glare at him.“What?”“You pulled me up in front of my parents. That’s disrespectful.” I said and saw the maid’s eyes widen at the way I spoke to the Alpha.Dominic didn’t seem to be offended and said, “And whose fault is that?” I
“Give me my phone back!” I said and placed my palm forward for him to put the phone in my hand.He raised a brow, “Your phone?” He pulled out something from his pocket and my eyes narrowed noticing that it was indeed my phone in his hand, “Are you talking about this?”“Yes! Now give it back.”He looked at the model as if examining it and then pushed it back in his pocket, “Better if it stays with me.”What the hell!“You can’t do that. That’s my phone.” I said and he sipped his tea, placed the cup on the glass center table with a clinking sound, and leaned his back on the sofa,“I suggest you don’t use that tone with me, kitten. You are forgetting who I am.” He said, a small smile planted on his face, but his eyes told a different story. He looked angry.I scratched my neck and lowered my voice, “I am sorry. But I need my phone." Amidst all this craziness, I totally forgot that I was held captive by a powerful man who if wished, could destroy me and my family. I could take his blows,
I blinked frequently, scared of Dominic’s wrath. From the time I came here, he did not show his anger towards me. But that didn’t mean he wouldn’t.I gathered my courage and said with a straight face, “I do not wish to be with you.”Dominic stood in front of the open double doors and his eyes narrowed at me, annoyance building in his eyes. He closed the doors with a thud and my heart almost came to my throat.He walked to the bed and raised a brow, “And why do you not?”My jaw clenched. Wasn’t it obvious?“You brought me here against my will. I do not want to share anything with you.” I said, the flames of anger burning in my head.His face darkened with a precarious look in it and he leaned forward, his hands resting on the bed as a support and he stared at me. His ripped shoulder muscles peeked through the fabric of his black shirt.“I told you to be careful with your words, kitten. You don’t know what would land you to danger,” he said, his voice low and the hint of warning in those
My lips went dry with his words and my stomach started growling again like a beast. I heard his light chuckle and he moved away, “Eat, Avery. I am not letting you go.”I was not sure if his last sentence meant the same thing about keeping me here or in general keeping me trapped with him. Either way, my mind was slowly turning hazy with the lack of food.I gulped the saliva down my throat and walked back to the bed without any word. The dishes on the plate tempted me to gobble them all up in a go and I sat on the bed, ready with the cutlery to dive in. Dominic watched me eat, but I tried to concentrate on relishing the juices of the turkey.He was right. The food was something worth eating.I closed my eyes, to distract myself from his scrutiny on my lips and enjoyed chewing the food that slowly melted on my tongue. This was pure bliss!Just then, I heard a small growl come from the other side and I opened my eyes to find him staring at my plate with narrow eyes.“What?” I asked, confu
I shrugged and bit the cheese sandwich, “Nothing. Just curious.”Ana mildly nodded her head and gave a small smile, as if unsure of what to say. Once I was done eating breakfast, we strolled through the different parts of the mansion. She walked me through the beautiful garden that was so huge, FIFA World Cup could be organized there.But my attention kept wandering back to what I saw in my dreams. When we walked to one of the corridors, I looked at the first corridor that we didn’t take. I wanted to go there, but with Ana around, it was not possible. We passed a window when a crow was seen flying outside.My eyes widened when I realized it was the same crow—sorry raven that I had seen in my dreams. I could have mistaken it for any other crow, but it looked the same as the one in my dream.“Oh, these crows again.” Ana shook her head in annoyance and turned to me, “Can you please excuse me for a minute, miss? I would be right back.”“Yeah, sure. Go ahead.” I said with a smile and she d
Both Ana and I were shocked to find Dominic standing right in front of us. God knew how much of our conversation he listened to. His eyes turned down to Ana who was trembling as if she would die if she took a breath.“Leave.” He commanded her in a voice that hit me like a cold gust of wind and she quickly bowed her head and left me alone with the predator. Dominic’s face was serious, unlike the times when he usually had a sinister smile. But it wasn’t as hostile towards me as it was when he looked at others.He closed the door behind him and took a large stride towards me. I immediately backed away, feeling the edge of the bed on my lower back. His forehead creased at my action and he took another stride, closing the distance between us.“Are you alright?” His question threw me aback because I didn’t expect him to be calm when I had stepped into the mansion’s supposedly ‘forbidden zone.' I had thought he would lash out at me.“I am…not,” I said and his eyes subtly narrowed, catching th
I gritted my teeth and tried to wiggle out of his hold on my waist, but to no avail. His arms were stronger than my will to get away from his clutches.His eyes were narrowed, “I wonder how you are so hell-bent on trying when you know well that you can’t.”I snapped my head at him, snarling, “I am not yours to have. You have no right to keep me trapped like this.”“Trapped? I have given you enough freedom to roam around the mansion and garden. Some don’t even get that privilege or their heads grace the floors of my mansion. ” he said and I stopped my movement, the scene of the warrior falling lifeless on the ground flashed in front of my mental vision.“This is not freedom. I need to see my family. I need to go back to college so that I can speak with my friends. I need my phone back.” I said, hoping it would impact him somehow on considering my freedom.“And I will give you all of it when I can trust you enough to not run away,” he said with a stoic look on his chiseled face and I cou
