“What’s going on here?” I heard a voice.
I couldn’t see the person who has just come because of Edan. He was on top of me. But by the voice, I could tell it was an elderly woman.
“Mom!” Edan looked in the direction of the voice.
Did he just say, mom? Is it Mrs.
Wilton. Oh my God! What she’ll think
of us? And she caught us in that
Oh my God… I feel so embarrassed…
I pushed Edan of me and stood straight.
Edan looked at me with questioning looks. Whilst I dug my head downwards.
I feel so embarrassed…
“Mom! What are you doing here?” Edan said looking at his mom.
“I just came to remind you about our dinner tonight. You weren’t picking my phone. And you know you have to be there. Your grandparents are coming tonight.” His mom reminded him but I could sense a hint of anger or frustration in her voice.
Was it because of the thing she had
“Mom, I knew that and I hadn’t forgotten,” Edan replied coolly.
“Edan! I came here also to inform you about a visit of my friend. She’s visiting us from London. And I must add she has a beautiful daughter. I thought you might li-”
“Mom! Stop it!!” Edan cut her mid-sentence and I looked in his direction.
I could tell what his mother was talking about. Of course! I’m not that dumb. She was arranging a date for him. For Edan. For my Edan.
I felt like crying knowing that Edan could be with someone else.
“Mom! I’m not gonna meet any of your friend’s daughter nor any other girl. I’ve told you a thousand times before to stop setting me up with one of your chosen girls.” Edan gritted. While I felt a little relieved.
I don’t want to lose him. I want him
to be only mine. I won’t be able to
survive without him.
“Edan! You’ve been giving me the same excuse every time. Son! I want your happiness. I want you to get serious, stop goofing here and there and stop playing with girls.” She shot me a glare and then started talking. I felt that someone had slapped me on my face. I couldn’t believe that she too think of me as some s–t.
“I want that you should just stop being a player. For once find a real girl for yourself.”
I looked down. I couldn’t bear to look at his mother. I was really ashamed of myself. I felt myself at low.
I heard Edan chuckled.
“Well, mom! Then this is probably a good news for you. I’ve found a girl for me.” I looked at Edan with shocked eyes. He was smiling and looking towards me.
“Really? Who?” His mother asked him with a demanding tone.
My heart started to beat faster by every second.
“Her name is Emma James. She is beautiful, talented, hardworking and above all, she is kind hearted well not with guys but with girls and I’m glad for that.” He chuckled.
I stood frozen on the ground and couldn’t believe my ears. I couldn’t believe that I was listening to this.
“She is my special girl and I knew it the day I met her. I knew deep down that I had fallen for her but took a little longer to realize.” He smiled and then looked towards his mom.
“Mom! I’ve found my girl. She’s mine and I’m only hers. She’s my first and gonna be the last love. I love her more than my own self and I’ll be always by her side. So, stop setting me up with one of your heiresses.” Edan replied and again looked at me showing me his satisfying smile.
“And who is she?” His mother asked.
Edan came closer to me and wiped the tears from my eyes which I didn’t know had fallen. He caressed my face and kissed me on my forehead. I closed my eyes and lost myself in treasuring this moment.
I placed a hand on his and wish that we could stay like this forever. Edan and me.
I knew that his mother had just got a clear answer.
“I see. I’m sure that you’re going to bring her to dinner tonight. We all want to meet her. And be there at 7 pm sharp.” With that, she turned around and left the office.
I stood frozen on the ground. I couldn’t take my eyes off Edan.
I felt something warm inside my heart. I felt new emotions. The way he said those words, I knew they were straight from his heart. There was not a single lie in them and his eyes say that all.
I could see love in them and not for some other girl but me. His love is only for me. I doubted him, I doubted his feelings for me. I doubted my own feelings but now I know I truly love him.
With him my every day is special. When I’m with him it seems like I’m in an entirely new world.
I felt tears on my cheeks that had escaped from my eyes.
“Why are you crying?” Edan wiped my tears with his thumb, drawing soothing circles on my skin.
“I’m happy,” I replied. My heart was filled with overwhelmed emotion, with feelings. The feeling of being loved.
“I’m glad you are. I’ve told you before I only love you.” He chuckled.
“I don’t care if you don’t love me back. I don’t care if you haven’t fallen for me but just always remember this I am never letting you go. I’m never gonna let you leave my side. I’ll protect you. I’ll keep you safe. I want you, Emma, only you.” He breathed heavily.
“I haven’t done this before.” He chuckled.
“So, it was kind of difficult for me to say it but I just couldn’t keep it in. I wanted to tell you how much I love you. And thank God. I’m feeling lighter now after telling you my feelings.” He smiled and it made me smile too.
“There’s my smile. Emma! Don’t you ever stop smiling. I love that smile on your face. I want you to let go of your past and always keep smiling. Just remember I am always there to protect you even if I have to kill my own self.”
“No. Don’t say that. Don’t say about killing your own self. I would die if something would happen to you. Promise me that you’ll never leave me. You’ll always be there for me.” The thought of Edan being hurt… I couldn’t stand it.
“I promise. But you have to promise you will always smile.”
I smiled and Edan grinned.
“I promise I will always smile because now I have a reason to smile.” With that, I drew closer and kissed him gently on his lips.
“I love you Edan.”
Chapter Fourth One
“I love you.” She whispered and if she wouldn’t have been too close I could have missed it.
Or did I misheard? Did I hear her right? Or is my mind playing tricks on me?
Did she just say she loves me? Or am I dreaming?
“What?” I asked her, staring at her.
“I l-love y-you.” She stuttered and her cheeks got a crimson red color.
Okay… She- She j-just said that she
D–n it Edan!!! She confessed.
Finally… I was waiting for this time. I
had started to think I’ll be never able
to get her love. I thought that this
thing we had will always be one-sided. I thought she will never fall for
But now I have got her love. I have got her heart. Finally, I got her.
I claimed her lips in a gentle kiss filled with passion, love, and longing.
She responded and returned the kiss back.
My heart filled with all different emotions. I haven’t felt like this before. She is the only woman who had captured my heart. Who got me all wrapped up in her fingers.
Our lips molding together.
She was returning the kiss with the same passion. Showing me that now our feelings are mutual. We love each other.
I entered her mouth and kissed her gently. I pour all my love, all my feelings I feel towards her in that kiss.
I rested my forehead against him and looked into her eyes.
“You don’t know how much I’m happy. I finally got my girl.” I whispered and kissed on the bridge of her nose.
Seeing her smile was the best thing. I love her smile. I always tried my best to make her smile. I wanted to erase that horrible past of her. I may not know it all but I knew deep down that she was scared. Scared of getting hurt again. It was difficult for her to even trust a person.
I succeeded in gaining her trust and now I’m never gonna lose it.
“Edan?” She called out.
“What if your mother thought of me as some s–t or a gold digger? What if she hates me? I could sense her hatred towards me. What if-”
I shushed her by placing my finger on her trembling lips.
“Nothings gonna happen. And believe me, she will love you once she gets to know you.” I knew that my mom is a kind of a possessive one. She wants what’s the best for me and I know very well she wants my happiness and my happiness lies with my Emma.
It sounds so d–n right. I love that. I
love calling her mine…
“No buts. I know that and I just don’t care what happens or not I will never leave you. I have promised you that I’ll always be there for you.” I kissed her gently on her lips. Devouring every kiss, her lips and every moment.
“Now be ready at seven. I’ll pick you up.”
Without giving her any room to argue I headed towards my office.
I was grinning like a boy.
I love you.
I love you.
I kept on recalling her words. She confessed.
She told me she loves me back. I have entered into her heart.
The intercom beeped and I answered.
“Sir! There is someone name Lious Parker. He says its something important.”
“Send him in,” I said coldly.
I heard a knock and said a come in.
“Hello, Sir.” I nodded and shook his hand.
“So what’s the news?”
“Sir. I have been keeping an eye on Miss James as you have said me.” I nodded.
I hired him as Emma’s bodyguard. But she just refused to accept that. I know the girl she is. She wants to remain independent. She loves her privacy and doesn’t like the idea of someone invading her space.
But I too was a stubborn a-s after all. I wanted her to be safe.
After that incident in that bar, I want her to be safe. The thought of that bloody bastard just boils my blood. I don’t even want to imagine what would have happened to my Emma if I wouldn’t have been there.
The thought of his hands on my Emma makes me want to hit something. I’ll kill him once I lay my hands on him.
“Had she noticed you?”
“I don’t think so, sir. I have been taking every step with great measures. I’ve been keeping an eye on her from a safe distance.”
I nodded. When Lious told me that Emma had refused to take her service I ordered him to always keep an eye on her. I told him to stay at a distant place from her so that she wouldn’t suspect anything and thankfully she didn’t.
“What’s the matter then?” I looked at his face with a stern expression.
“Sir. There is someone stalking Miss James. We have suspected a movement like someone is keeping a close eye on her.”
Who the hell that person is? And
what does he wants from her?
“Who is that person?” I gritted my teeth with anger.
“Sir. We have sensed his presence but we still don’t know who that person is.”
“What do you mean you don’t know who the hell he is? I want every single report about him. Why do you think I’ve hired you?? You have to keep an eye on her 24/7. I don’t want any kind of carelessness. Or you will pay for that.” I growled.
He nodded in understatement.
“You can leave now. Give me each and every f—–g report about that bastard.” I growled again.
He nodded and left my office. I had my mind wrapped around the information I have got.
A thought hit me like a blazing. thunder.
“Miss Seville.”I pressed the intercom.

“Send Mr. Daniel to my office. Now.” My voice holding the firm authority.
I had a hunch that who that f—–g a—–e is but I need a proof to confirm my suspicions.
I looked at my wristwatch showing it was almost 5 in evening.
It’s time for me to go home.
I stood up and headed towards the elevator but something inside me stopped.
I felt a little bit giddy. I wanna see
him and said him a goodbye.
I headed towards his office but stopped mid-track.
Emma! Come on you’ll see him in two
hours. Go to your home and get ready. You don’t have enough time. You are going to meet his family.
My heart started beating faster on thinking about meeting his family.
What if they don’t like me and tell Edan to leave me? What if they think me as some s–t or a gold digger whose after him for his money?
I headed towards the bus stop. All these thoughts still in my mind.
I entered my apartment and headed towards my room.
I saw a letter there on my side table and pick it.
To Emma James.
Hmm. It was addressed to me. But I have never received any letter before.
“Yes, Em?” She shouted from the living room. She was watching one of her favorite movies. The Fault in Our
She just loves it.
“Who gave this letter?” I shouted back. I flipped it around but no name was written like where had it came from or who send it.
“I don’t know. It was just lying in front of the front door. As your name was written on it, I placed it in your room.”
I opened it. Wondering who is the one sending it.
I opened the letter and on reading the first word. I froze.
My hands and legs starting shaking. I held on the bed to steady myself. I felt a fear ran down my whole body. My body trembled with fear.
Dear My Sweet Emy!
He’s back. He’s back for me…
