I looked at the room which I’ve only entered a few times as I grew up.
Father was once determined to let me learn and know every single code that existed in this place. I was the only one who knew of them. He wouldn’t even tell anything to mum about them, I didn’t understand why, but now I believe that I may know the reason behind his request.
The woman has probably been cheating on him all along and the man might have known about it. He had his own affairs, however, their marriage was kept intact for the peace treaty between his and her family. Plus, the fact that he had a child, a daughter, well, me. He didn’t want me to find out about anything, knowing that it would probably end up turning messy if anyone finds out that he was being cheated on, and he as a man wouldn’t have accepted knowing that his wife was cheating on him. Well, that was the only logical explanation I could think of in such a situation.
Nikolay: “Baby girl?” “Yes, love?” Kiara asked turning to face me. The girl had been quiet since leaving her mother’s house and even though I didn’t want to bother her with talking about the subject. I couldn’t help but worry about her. “What happened inside there? Did she say anything that…?” “Nothing love, she didn’t say anything that I didn’t expect. The woman simply wanted to vent and I’m guessing that being put in the corner made her lose herself” Kiara answered looking out the window. The two of us have been driving for the past hour, I was initially supposed to take us back home. But seeing the state that my wife was in, I didn’t want her going home being upset. “When are we going back home? I mean to the States?” Kiara asked and I smiled at her taking her hand in mine and kissing her knuckle. “Believe me, even I miss it back there. No matter what the bullshit was, it was us and our family, none of the fucked up mess we’ve been
“I do” Grace said looking Richard in the eye. Tears fell from her mother’s eyes as she watched her daughter say those two words.“I now pronounce you man and wife, you may kiss the bride”Richard cupped Grace’s cheeks and connected their lips. Kissing her tenderly as if it was their first kiss. Everyone clapped for the happy couple, both Nikolay and Kiara looked at one another. Holding each other’s hands, their fingers intertwined. Nikolay brought Kiara’s hand to his lips and kissing her knuckle. His hand went to her stomach, where their little daughter grew.“Congratulations” Sebastian smiled at Nikolay who nodded at him. His hand holding Amalia’s, Lilian had been invited to come to the wedding but the woman chose to stay back and come when her grandchild was born. Her and Sebastian have agreed that she is freed however she would be under surveillance. His men were watching over her, the woman ha
“Is this some kind of joke?” Kiara asked frowning in confusion, waking up in the familiar podium where she once grew up watching people die in front of her as she herself fought for her own life. “I don’t know, but I don’t like this” Richard said from beside Kiara. The two were trying to process how they even got here to begin with. People around them started coming to their senses as they woke up inside the podium. “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to The Bloodlust Games, The final chapter” ************************* Re-entering the Bloodlust games was never an option in Kiara’s life. But when revenge is on the line and both she and Richard are forced into them, they have nothing to do but survive, for it was either play and live. Or die…
“Is everything ready?” Lilian asked looking at her lover. The man who she had defended and protected against the whole world despite being wrong. “Almost my love, just a few twitches and we’ll be set” Ian said programming the system as she wished it to be. The woman had turned out being deadlier than he had expected. He didn’t know of this side of her when Louis was alive. The maximum he thought she could do was cheat on him. But as it turned out, the woman had more to her than he had imagined and he didn’t want to admit it out loud, even though the woman technically saw it through his eyes. He liked this side of her. “I can’t wait for it to be ready! Our dreams will finally start coming true” she whispered looking at her lover who smiled. It had been five years since Louis had died and the Ivanov family got what they wanted. Five long years, and they’ve waited patiently for this moment. They have been working together on this project since the woman’s ex husband’s d
“Kiara, go!” He begged looking me in the eye, our green eyes meeting, I could see fear in his eyes as fire filled the building, he was bleeding, taking a bullet to protect me from the attack. There was no way he was going to make it out alive if I left him, his wound was too deep and he had lost a lot of blood, he cupped my cheeks, despite the blood on his hand, I welcomed his touch, allowing him to cup my cheeks “go to him Kiara, he’s out losing his mind for you”“No!” I said glaring at him, we were both the last ones in the building, the last ones alive that is, everyone had either escaped or died in the attack. I kept my eyes on his as I walked to his side and took his arm looping it over my shoulder supporting his body weight over my shoulder, he was heavy, yes, his body was barely supporting him, but I wasn’t going to leave him.“Kiara…”“I said no Richard, we either get out of here to
Nikolay:Screams filled the hospital’s hall, all of us men standing outside the door, waiting for news from inside that room. However, all we’ve been hearing for hours were loud screams.Kiara’s dad, Louis, was tense as he paced around the hall making me dizzy, and as much as I wanted him to stop. I couldn’t blame him for how worried he was, we had been here for over twelve hours.“Louis, you need to sit down” Dimitri said looking at Dimitri from beside me. We had somehow managed to build a bond with one another, they visited us here in the States and we were currently in England. Being invited by them to stay for a few weeks.“They’ve been there for hours, what if something bad happens?” Louis asked looking at Dimitri who chuckled and put a hand on his shoulder, giving it a light squeeze.“She’s a strong woman Louis, it takes time, you should know that” Mart said looking at Lo
Kiara:“Good morning” I said opening my eyes to Nikolay’s lips kissing my forehead. He smiled and ran his fingers over mine, his bare chest against my bare back. Having had an exciting morning after getting back from the hospital, neither one of us bothered to get dressed, my body not allowing me to get out of Nikolay’s arms after he had drained me.“Good morning baby girl” Nikolay smiled leaning to my lips, kissing me softly moving his lips against mine. He knew that there was no way that I would be able to go for another round after the active morning we had, but a few innocent kisses were never a harm between the two of us “how’d you sleep?”“Like a baby” I said laughing making Nikolay chuckle and lay down beside me, wrapping his arms around my body and pulling me closer to him. I turned around and laid on my stomach, raising myself to look him in the eye as I laid on his chest “hi”
Nikolay:I watched as Kiara supervised as the maids walked around the room, serving the guests who had arrived to see the newborn child. Lilian’s family had been coming in numbers for hours now, we had to refill the fridge twice already, and Louis had it packed when we first arrived.Gifts were given out everywhere, of all kinds. The women gave clothes, while the men brought gold coins. It was traditional that when a child was born, gold coins were handed for him or her for the parent to keep when the child grew up. Usually, a parent would sell them if needed for the child’s education or training, or they would just keep the coins for the kid when he grew up. I personally still had the coins which were gifted to me, mom and Dimitri never sold them, not that they needed to, Dimitri took care of everything when it came to finances, whether it was my tuition or training.Kiara looked at me and I smiled at her, encouraging her to keep going despite her e
