Chapter Twenty Five
I have been taken by shock again by Edan, although I had so missed those warm lips. Yes… I missed his lips, his warmth.
Still, I couldn’t seem to comprehend why is he doing this? Why is he kissing me? And who was he with? And who is that mystery girl whose heart he wants to win? There were a ton of questions in my mind.
How am I gonna find their answers?
Despite the fact that I want to kiss him and never let him go I need to find the answers to these questions. I gain my courage and pushed him away but he didn’t flinch at all.
His kisses getting intense and if I didn’t stop him now I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to control myself.
I pushed him again and drew my face back. I looked in his eyes but this time they weren’t as furious as the last time. Instead, there was some satisfaction in them.
Satisfaction? But why?
“Come on. Let’s go…” He took my hand and started walking towards the parking area.
“Edan… Stop…where are you taking me? And why did you kiss me? And who was that girl with you?” I asked him trying my best to stop him.
He stopped and looked towards me. I thought he was going to give me the answers to my questions but Oh boy!!! I was wrong.
“That’s lots of questions Miss James,” he smirked.
“Ed-” I was cut off by his lips on mine. He kissed my lips although it was a short kiss, it was amazing.
“Hush…!” he said while parting away and continued to take me towards his car. And that was enough for me to shut my d–n mouth.
After we sat in, he started the car and now we were on the road. After about 20 minutes I decided to break the silence. I couldn’t take these questions anymore.
“Edan where are you taking me?” His eyes on the road, he didn’t reply. Now I was getting a little afraid. We were driving in the middle of nowhere and in this time of the night.
Where were we heading to?
He stopped the car in the middle of the road and faced towards me. “So what were you saying?” he said with a smirk.
“Why are we here?” I was now starting to panic a little.
Is he really Edan? Or some murderer who has brought me here in the middle of the might.
God! What am I even thinking!
“I just want to have some time alone with you.” With that, he moved out from the car and walked towards my side. He opened the door and motioned me to get out. I hesitated, still a bit afraid of this. Early today he was playing coldly with me and now all these kissing and loving. What is this?
I’m not afraid of him. It’s just a little awkward for me.
“Come on,” Edan said forwarding his hand. But I didn’t respond. He looked into my eyes.
“Don’t be afraid. I’m not going to eat you.” he chuckled and I smiled at his words.
“Emma come on… Do you trust me?” he said his eyes staring into mine. Do I trust him?…Do I?… I looked at those blue eyes. Those eyes filled with hope, filled with something different that I haven’t seen when I first met him.
“Do you trust me?” He said his voice firm.
I focused on his words. Emma! Do
you trust him? Do I? I think yes… Yes, I do trust him. I nodded and took his hand. I don’t know why I trust him. After seeing him with that girl, after he kissed me and then he teased me, after he acted harshly with me… But still, I trust him… I believe in him.
Call me a mad woman, call me insane, call me whatever you want, but now I can’t help it. I had fallen for this man standing in front of me. The more I forced myself to make me believe that I am not attracted to him, the more I try my best to stay away from him, the more I came closer to him. That man who I hate the most, that man who forced me to work for him…the man who comforted me, who saved me… I don’t know if I’ve gone crazy or something but I think I had fallen for this man and I like him.
He locked the car and we started to walk on the road. He was holding my hand. Butterflies invading my stomach by this mere contact. We turned towards a small path having trees on both sides. A cool breeze was blowing and I shivered. Edan noticed that and put his coat on my shoulders. Instantly my cheeks warmed up. I smelled his intoxicating scent. He held my hand. That path led us to a small park. The park was beautiful. My mouth hung open in aw. The trees shining in the moonlight.
There was a bench in front of a beautiful lake, and a small cabin beside the lake. The water of the lake reflecting the moonlight. It was beautiful. He took me to the bench and we both sit there. I looked at the view admiring it.
“I used to came here when I was a kid with my family,” Edan said looking towards the lake breaking the awkward silence between us.
“It’s beautiful,” I replied admiring the view. I loved it…
“Why did you bring me here?” I asked the question which was intriguing me.
“I wanted to show this to you. It’s my favorite spot, this place is full of my childhood memories. I thought maybe you’ll like it too.” His blue eyes staring into mine.
“I love it,” I replied staring back into his eyes, the rustling of leaves by the cold wind and the peaceful environment… I loved every bit of this place. But the best part is that I’m

“Edan?” I said slightly
“Hm?” He said while taking my hand and walking towards the other side of the lake.
On the other side, there was a boat. I don’t know where he’s taking me. My question was answered when he took my hand and led me on the boat. As I step on it, It starts shaking and I shrieked grabbing Edan’s arm tightly.
“Calm down…” he chuckled and grabbed me.
“Are you planning on drowning me?” I said a little furious.
“Not at all. I’ll never do that.” he chuckled and pecked on my cheek. My eyes got wide open and I turned into all shades of red. I have to stop
myself from reacting this way… I had
never reacted this way. What is he
doing to me???
He led me to the boat. He sat in front of me and started rowing the boat. I was surprised at him, shocked. I haven’t seen his this side before, his muscles contracting and relaxing when he paddles the boat and I couldn’t seem to avert my eyes from him. I looked at him, his eyes locked in mine…
I don’t know what is the plan of him by bringing me here but I’m glad he did. This place is great.
After about half an hour I asked Edan to drop me at my place. I really enjoyed this peaceful environment, it feels like you’re in a completely different world, no tensions, no worries only quite and peace and the best part was that I was with Edan. I really enjoyed his company… We laughed and he shared his childhood memories with his family in that place, and today I also came to know that he has 1 older brother and one younger sister.
The car stopped in front of my apartment and I know it’s not maybe the best time but I need to ask that question that’s been disturbing me all this time.
“Who was the girl you were with, in the restaurant?” I asked not even recognizing my own voice. It came out a little rudely and it seems like I was hurt or something.
“Why?… Are you jealous..?”I noticed a smirk on his lips.
“No…” I retorted.
“I was just wondering.”
“I’ll tell you on one condition,” he said in a playful tune his eyes showing that.
“And what’s that?” I said trying to act like a strong woman. I thought maybe he would say something like you have to do an overtime work or something but I was wrong again.
He looked into my eyes and leaned closer, my stomach doing summersaults, seeing that I leaned back and my back hits the car.
“Are you afraid of me?” He said leaning closer.
“Afraid of you? Huh…” I huffed. Why will I be afraid of him?
“Then why all the time when I came closer to you, you seem to move back.” And this sentence caught my tongue. He leaned closer and I don’t know how to react.
“Well… If you’re not gonna tell me who w-was that girl than I be should be g-going.” I opened the door hoping to escape his questions but he stopped me and pulled me back to my seat.
“Edan let me go…” I felt thousands of electric sparks in my body by his touch.
“Until what-” I was getting irritated now. What does he want from me? Why can’t he just let me leave…
“Kiss Me.” He smirked.
