“Hi, I’m Ethan Moore. You’re mine from this moment, henceforth.” “What?—” “Get in the car.” He held the car door open for her. “What—I don’t even know who you are—you think having a baritone voice can make you stand in front of me and spout rubbish from that god forsaken thing you call a mouth?!” Elizabeth was beginning to get irked. Ethan smirked at her. Nice, she’s got a sharp tongue—he liked sharp tongues. He turned to the nearest bodyguard, “get her in the car.” Staring directly into her emerald green eyes, he added, “if she resists, throw her in the trunk.” …………………………………………………… Due to pressure from his parents, to get married, Ethan Moore is forced to kidnap a strange woman against her wish.

“Let’s go.” He stood up all of a sudden and also pulled me up. ETHAN“Dad…”My dad. Why didn’t I think about him before dragging Spitfire here?The man could be extremely unbearable at times… why would he ask her about what her parents did…?And to think that mum of all people was on his side…I casually returned my hand and let it rest on the low of Spitfire’s back. I didn’t know if she got the message I was trying to pass across—that I was here, and nothing would happen to her—but I did it, anyway. It was my was of assuring her…“I’m an orphan.” I knew she was an orphan. It was stated in the background check Arnold did on her. How lonely she must have been, growing up in an orphanage.I noticed dad’s disgruntled expression as he turned to look at me, “you could have done better.”Really? Or you meant to say, ‘you should have brought Anna instead.’Speak of the devil… Anna made an appearance just right at that moment. Why? Why was she here anyways? And to think that we came here e
The truth? Oh. Nothing but the goddamn truth. Ethan’s hand rested on my back again and it sort of felt comforting. “Erm, I’m an orphan. I grew up in an orphanage.” I replied in a low voice.The man looked at me with great distaste and threw a sideways glance at Ethan, “you could have done better.”I chewed on my lower lip in embarrassment while I felt Ethan’s hand run up and down my back in a calming manner.I was starting to regret agreeing to the contract. What was I expecting anyway? Of course, his parents would want someone of the same status, as their child, for him.“Dad,” Ethan’s sister called calmy. But it was fine though. He should have indeed done better. Why did he even choose me for this?“She’s my choice. And we’re engaged—to be married.” Ethan replied to him with a stern face. The man simply clicked his tongue and looked away as if his son didn’t just speak to him. He looked past us and his eyes suddenly shone brightly. “Anna!” It was Mrs. Moore this time around.
Hot.Initially, I had absolutely no plans of attending Danielle’s baby shower. I despised attending social gatherings that involved my family—most especially, my parents.They wouldn’t let me breathe… they’d repeatedly pester me about getting married…to Anna.But tonight was different. Hell yeah, it was. I wouldn’t be attending the baby shower alone. Now, I have Spitfire.I got in the shower, had a quick hot bath, and got dressed up in a navy blue tux. Nodding satisfactorily at my reflection in the mirror, I headed downstairs. Yeah, Spitfire wasn’t ready yet. You know women… Anyways, I sat, patiently waiting for her to get done—we weren’t too late yet. After about thirty minutes, I started to hear the clacking sounds of heels from the stairway. As the clacks drew closer, I raised my head in the direction of the stairs, and the sight I beheld… My mouth opened ajar. She looked so mesmerising—in that short, shape burgundy satin wrap dress that wrapped fittedly around her curves that l
“Hello, Lizzy.” Moana’s face lit up immediately she sighted the woman approaching the dining room. The stupid girl, despite all her effort, still failed to vanish from her sight. “Hello, Moana.” Elizabeth smiled back at the woman.“Alexa, could you perhaps get me a glass of water?” Elizabeth was so tired, she sank onto one of the dining chairs. Her words angered Moana. Who did the girl think she was—the woman of the house? Oh, so now, she was getting used to the mansion… and had become so pompous she couldn’t go get a glass of water herself. Scoff.Alexa who was glad that the ma’am had come downstairs quickly scurried off into the kitchen and was soon back with a sparkling clean glass of water. “Thank you.” Elizabeth smiled gratefully.***Just after Elizabeth was done having dinner, she stood and began to ascend the stairs. Right at that moment, she heard the roaring sound of a car driving into the mansion and she immediately knew that it was Ethan. Every strand of hair on ther
Just when he was about to step out of his car and barge in, he saw Elizabeth run out. His anger soon turned into confusion as she ran past his car. She looked like she was about to break down in tears. Like she’d just witnessed something terrifying. He quickly turned the car around and drove behind her. He could roughly guess what the girl had just witnessed and his heart broke as he watched her sit in the bus shelter, crying her eyes out. He’d parked across the road. A part of him wanted to get down from the car and console the girl but he knew well to leave the girl to pour all of her heart out. She needed it. And when she was done crying, she reached for her pocket and brought out a card. He recognized the card. He’d given it to her. He’d watched in silence as the girl stared at the card in her hand, with mixed expressions on her face. He knew exactly what was going on in her mind… the contradicting thoughts…She soon stood up and entered a telephone booth. Ethan’s phone r
Heaving a deep sigh, I reached for my trouser’s pocket and took out the card he’d given me earlier. ‘Am I about to do the right thing though?’ I stared hard at the card stuck between my middle finger and my index finger. I had nothing left to lose. Did I? Do I?Breathing out through my mouth, I glanced beside me and my gaze landed on the telephone booth near the bus shelter. Sniffling loudly, I stood up and dragged my feet towards it. As soon as I reached the telephone booth, I stepped in and closed the door behind me. My heart thumped hard against my chest as I punched in the digits on the card.I inhaled deeply and punched on the dial button.I cradled the telephone receiver between my shoulder and ear as it rang on the other end.I prayed silently for Ethan to pick up and I also prayed for him not to pick up. I wasn’t sure I was making the right decision…I bit on my lower lip, waiting impatiently for whatever was going to happen the next minute. On the second ring, Ethan
Damn! Right, Derek!Derek, my boyfriend. I was filled with sudden guilt but I quickly pushed it off my mind as soon as it came. I missed him soooo much. I had to see him. I need to see him. And it’s tonight.I sprang up to my feet at once, “Susan, I’ll be right back.”“Where—”I cut in before she could continue, “don’t worry. I promise, I’ll fill you in on all the details as soon as I get back.” I hunched my back and kissed her on the lips, grinning at her confused expression.I snatched her purse from the center table before rushing out of our apartment. “I’ll pay back!” I yelled, shutting the door behind me.As soon as I stepped out of the building, I hailed a cab, gave the driver Derek’s home address, and drove straight to Derek’s apartment which was about twelve minutes from mine.My heart clenched as I looked out through the window, lost deep in thought.Would he believe it if I told him I was kidnapped by a rich crazy man?”Obviously not.Hell, he’d have missed me so much… no
‘Where are we going?’ My breathing hitched.I didn’t know I’d said that out aloud until he replied, “you’ll see when we get there.”Throughout the journey to whereever it was that we we headed, my heartbeat didn’t stop skipping. The farther we went from his mansion, the scarier and anxious I became. Was he going to sell me off?I looked back through the nack window, there was no convoy behind us. We were driving alone.I was silent yet nervous. I sat still, praying inwardly.After what seemed about an hour, I looked out throught the window and and started to recognize the buildings and streets we drove past. Soon, we arrived in front of an extremely familiar building. It was at this moment it suddenly dawned on me; he’d brought me home. Ethan had brought me home!I found this hard to believe.Wait, what? I blinked my eyes consecutively just tobe sure I wasn’t dreaming.I really wasn’t dreaming. I tore my gaze away from my apartment’s building and turned to look at Ethan. He had
