Chapter 7: The Misfortune

Kellisa Nilsson’s POV

I was looking at Kate as she was putting on her seductive dress as well as her mask before she was smiling at herself in the vanity.

“So, what do you think?” She asked me as I was smiling at her.

“It suits perfectly, my lady,” I said before Kate was smirking at her reflection. Then, she turned to look at me.

“You’re right. I think this is perfect for the idea that I have in mind,” she said before she was dismissing me for the night. I was nodding and bowing at her before she went to pursue the person that has held her heart from the beginning.

Leonardo Vincent Ricci, a foreigner from Italy.

After I attended to Kate and all her stuff, I took some time to shower before I was adorning a simple dress so that I can blend in with the crowd at the ball tonight. I was smiling at the thought of mingling with them but I wanted to be alone.

And so, I headed out to the garden that I know no one will come here. I might get some classical music to listen to as well. I was taking my iPod with my earphones before I was heading out to the garden that was inside the Hostel. 

I looked around and was excited when I was conquering the garden by myself. I took my favorite spot in the garden before I was leaning against the bench and I was putting on my earphones. Then, Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata was playing.

Finally, inner peace.

But of course, it was short-lived when I heard someone was shouting out loud to the sky. I was looking at the person who was sitting not far from me.

“Cheers to people that could not control their fates,” his sultry voice was filling the air as he took a swig from the bottle.

Men and their liquor.

I was about to leave quietly before I was stumbling upon my own feet as I was trying to getaway. “Damn it!” I cursed under my breath before the man that was shouting was looking at me. It was the same man that I saw back in the streets.

His blond locks.

His dark green eyes.

His straight, aristocratic nose.

His high cheekbones.

And his lips…full, kissable lips.

What the fuck is wrong with me?!

“Hey! Look who’s here!” He slurred before he took another swig from the bottle. I don’t even know why Kate took him into this contest anyway.

If anything, he was not husband material, if you asked me.

I made a face of disgust with his behavior right now. But I cannot lie to you, even in this disheveled state, he still managed to look delicious with his black Armani suit and red tie.

He looked like the devil in disguise.

“Don’t you have anything else to do?” I asked him before the man was smiling at me. I think his name was Tyler Virtanen or something. I scoffed at his reaction before I was crossing my arms at him.

Then, he did the unpredictable. He was giving me the bottle of champagne that he was drinking to me.

Was he trying to share the liquor with me?

But of course, being the good Princess that swore not to touch any alcohol in her life, I have to reject his offer. Not that I don’t want to taste it, but I made a promise to my mum. “No, thank you. I don’t drink,”

Then, Tyler was looking at me as he was arching his eyebrow at me. He was blinking his eyes slowly at me before he spoke again after a while, “But why? You missed out the fun,”

“If you mean fun by being drunk, then I would rather drink some juice,” I replied before I was turning to look around us. The stars were shining tonight and I think it was a perfect moment for a rendezvous with your lover.

Wait, what?

Then, I noticed that Tyler Virtanen was staring at me before I turned to look at him. I arched my eyebrow as he was checking me up and down with a smirk on his lips.

“Why are you staring at me? Stop that. It’s rude to stare,” I said before Tyler Virtanen was arching his eyebrow at me.

“Was it? I don’t remember it in the rule book. But I was not the one for following the rules anyway. That was for Kai to do. Not me,” he said as I was rolling my eyes at his statement.

Red alert; he’s a playboy.

“Oh, you have a brother?” I asked as I was remembering that the Virtanen clan has 3 grandsons. If Tyler was one of them and the other was named Chris, since he was engaged to the Finnish Princess before she broke it off (hence the competition or the accurate term is ‘Husband Hunt’), Kai must be his brother then.

“What makes you think I don’t have one?” He asked me. I was blinking my eyes before I was scoffing again at him. Then, I folded my arms under my breasts.

Which was not a good idea, let me tell you.

Tyler blinked his eyes a few times before he was focusing on my breasts. Ugh! I have enough of this indecency!

“Stop staring you moron!” I hissed at him before Tyler was looking at me. Then he smiled. I can see that his smile was calculative. 

Oh uh! Not a good sign, not good at all!

“I was not staring. I merely appreciated what was in front of me. And that is you, love,” he said as he was jumping off from the fence that he occupied earlier. He landed in front of me before I felt my breaths quickened. I was looking at his hard figure that was coming at me gracefully like a panther.

A panther that was about to devour his prey.

“What are you doing?” I said as Tyler was coming at me before I was looking for an escape route. I don’t think that I would have to fight him when he would attack me. He was under the influence of the alcohol before I was panicking right now.

“What are you doing? Stay back, moron,” I said as I was stepping back when Tyler was striding toward me. My back hit the gate before Tyler was trapping me in his arms. His hands were on either side of my head, not touching. 

But his hot breaths were mingling with mine right now.

I flinched when he was breathing hard. He was inhaling so deeply that I don’t know why he did it. I can smell the scent that was coming off from him. He was wearing the cologne from the Giorgio Armani. It was intoxicating.

I think I might fall for his seduction after all.

We were sitting there as I was unable to move from his arms. I don’t think that I would have the strength to fight him if he was to rape me. But I don’t think Tyler would force any woman to be in his bed.

He was charming and handsome, he did not need to be forceful.

I was looking at his golden locks before Tyler was whispering to me. I was staring at him as he was coming closer to me with his hot breath hitting my face.

Peppermint, my favorite.

“I have been waiting to do this when I first saw you,” he whispered huskily before I was looking at him, confused by his statement.


Tyler Virtanen smirked before he was putting his hand on my nape and pulled me closer to him. “This,” he said as he was claiming my mouth like he has the right to do it.

And I must tell you, it was nothing like anything I read before.

I was gasping when his soft lips were sucking on mine. I was trying to push him off but his expertise on this matter made me succumb to his kisses. I was punching his hard chest as I was trying to get away from him. I was looking at him before my eyes were fluttered as I was closing my eyes, feeling the sensual kisses that he gave me.

Sensing that I was giving in, Tyler was angling his head to deepen the kiss. I was pulling his lapel before my hands were finding their ways behind his neck as I was locking them together. I was pulling him to me as I can sense that my chest was hitting his.

“God, you’re the most wonderful thing in this fucking competition,” Tyler whispered before he was kissing me again. I was closing my eyes before I was wielding my body to him. Tyler was gripping my ass before I knew what was going on. 

He was grinding his hardness between my thighs as I was moving against him. It was magical and I think I was loving it. I have never been with anyone before but I do know what sex was. What was making love between woman and man? 

I know the technicality of it but not experiencing it to the fullest.

I was succumbing to the kisses that Tyler’s sensual lips were giving me before something splashed around us. Then, I remembered where I was and who I was pretending. I was opening my eyes before I was pushing Tyler away. He let me as we both breathed hard. Tyler smirked at me and before he even spoke, I slapped his face.

Then, I ran away from him, out of the garden that I will surely be thinking of him and his kisses whenever I am alone here.

Fuck my life!
