Chapter Fourth Eight
I looked at the alarm clock placed on the side table.
Oh my God!!!
I overslept. I sat up and looked at Edan’s side. It was empty. I could hear the shower in the bathroom. Why didn’t Edan wake me up?
The bathroom door opened and Edan in his full glory came out. His hair wet just from taking a shower and droplets of water falling from his hair. His muscles, his abs, his V line. And then that towel. It hung so low on his hips.
D–n it! Emma! Snap out!
I felt warm crept my neck and a blush formed on my cheeks.
I heard him chuckle and I averted my eyes.
I bet I look like a mess.
“Good Morning. Or should I say afternoon!” His voice tingled in my ear.
I didn’t know he was so close. One moment he was standing there and now he was right beside me.
“Good afternoon,” I whispered.
I looked at him. His face so close to mine. Our eyes held each other. I could smell his mint smell. He had brushed his teeth and already taken a bath. And me? I was probably looking like a filthy animal in front of him.
I pushed him aside and stood up to went to the washroom.
“Hey! My morning kiss?” He held my arm gently and pulled me to him.
“Uuh! Not now.” I noticed his towel hanging dangerously low.
His touch creating electrifying spark throughout my body.
“Why?” He complained.
Because I bet I smell like a skunk by
“Aah… I’ll tell you. But first, put on a shirt and please wear a pant. Would you!”
Just to imagine if that towel would fall off.
Oh , My God!
“Emma! I could tell you are thinking something dirty.” He teased noticing my blush.
My eyes wide open.
I spun around and entered the washroom. I heard him chuckle.
I did my business and took off my clothes. I welcomed the water. I took my time relaxing in the warm shower.
Last night I had a nightmare. It was the worst of all the nightmares I ever had. And it led me to tell Edan about Den. After telling him I went to sleep in his arms. He never stopped saying soothing words in my ear.
It’s so good to finally let it all out. My head felt a lot light headed after telling him all about me. I’m glad he didn’t think of me as a bad luck. I always thought that my presence was a bad luck.
I never loved myself but then Edan changed my life. He made me feel loved. I started loving myself. He made me believe. He made me believe in having hope.
A smile made its way to my lips.
I turned off the tap and took the bathrobe hanging there.
I don’t have any clothes to wear. Darn
I didn’t come here with a mind to stay the night. So, I didn’t care to bring an extra dress.
I unlocked the door and peeped outside.
Edan was fully dressed and he was sitting on the edge of the bed. He was wearing a grey shirt with worn out blue jeans.
The robe I was wearing was so big as compared to my body figure. I was 100% sure that it is of Edan’s. I fold the sleeves and hold the robe tighter to my chest. I folded the belt twice around my waist and with one hand I opened the door and with another, I clutched the robe tighter.
How come? You’re not wearing a
skimpy towel. For heaven sakes! You are wearing an oversized robe and
your whole body is covered.
Yeah right. It’s not like I’m naked but why I feel like it.
“Edan! I don’t have anything to wear.” I whispered.
Edan’s head turned towards mine and a smirk plastered on his face.
“Edan!” I complained.
“Could you please ask Lily to lend me her one dress?” I asked but his eyes never leaving my side.
He stood up and with three long strides, he was standing in front of me. My breath hinged.
His eyes burning with desire and lust. His lips claimed mine in a sweet and a passionate kiss. I closed my eyes and responded.
I was so lost in him, in that kiss. My hand which was clutching the robe tightly left its place and went to his silky jet black hair.
My other hand around his neck. His tongue explored my mouth. His lips made it’s way to my jawline and then to my ear. He kissed the sensitive spot behind my ear and I moaned in pleasure.
His hand went to the collar of my robe and he slightly lowered it. My both shoulders were exposed by now. His hand holding my robe in place on my arms.
He kissed my neck. My hair was wet because of the shower. He nibbled and kissed on the same spot he kissed last night. I moaned with pleasure and whispered his name.
His lips descend down and down until it reached just above my valley.
“So d–n beautiful.” He groaned.
My heart lept a beat.
I don’t want him to stop. His hand slides down my arms along with my robe. My cleavage showing. A little more down and my breasts would be fully exposed.
Why I’m not stopping him?
Because you want him.
Yes, I want him so badly.
Instantly door opened and came in rushing Drake followed my Ella.
They both chasing each other.
Edan instantly covered my bare shoulders with the robe and I hold it tighter. My face fully red.
“Uncle Ed! Uncle Ed! Ella is saying she’s your favorite.” Drake complained.
“Yes, I am.” Ella pulled her tongue out at him.
They both were 5 years old and so cute.
“No, I’m his favorite.” Drake shot a glare at her.
“No. I am.” They both started fighting and I looked at them adoringly.
“Actually. You both are my favorite. No need to fight.” Edan picked them both up.
Drake in his one arm and Ella in his other arm. They both giggled.
“Told ya!” Drake laughed.
“OK. I’ll just be back.” Edan came and gave a quick peck on my lips and went outside with both troublemakers.
I’m a bit disappointed as well as a bit glad. Disappointed because we got interrupted but glad because I’m afraid. I’m not ready.
After 5 minutes Edan returned with a yellow dress.
I took it and rushed to the washroom. It was just below my knees and it fit perfectly.
I head towards my dressing table and took a brush. I gently brush my hair easing all the knots in them. Edan was sitting on the bed with his mobile in his hands.
I looked at myself in the mirror. My eyes wide when I noticed something. Shifting my hair to another side of my neck, I look at the mark.
“Edan!!!” I whispered yelled.
“What? Are you okay?” In a second he was standing beside me. I glared at him.
“What’s this?” I glared pointing at the mark.
“A love mark.” He said with a smirk like it was a normal thing.
“You… Urgh! Edan! It’s so big.” I looked at it again.
Crap! How I’m gonna hide it.
“Just as I wanted. To let everyone know you are mine.” His voice tingling my ear. His voice husky.
He then kissed my earlobe and licked my sensitive spot.
My body moaned with pleasure.
Emma! Stop it!
I pushed him.
“I’m not allowing you to kiss me. You will probably put your mark somewhere else also.”
“How you know that? Darn it! My plan’s ruined.” He pouted.
“You’re impossible.” I rolled my eyes.
“Of course I am.” He gave me a peck on my lips.
He said after a while.
“Emma! Mom is waiting downstairs.”
I don’t know why she hates me.
She’s testing you. You have to act
strong and pass this test. Be bold. Be
brave. Be tough.
You can face her.
I nodded and shifted my hair to the side with that love mark to hide it.
“Hey, that’s not fair! I guess I have to give you one on the right side too.” He came closer, a mischievous glint in his eyes and a smirk on his lips.
“Oh NO, Mr. Wilton.” I placed my hand on his chest to stop him.
“Don’t you fool me with these eyes. You know it won’t work on me.” His puppy dog eyes making it difficult for me.
He looked so cute like a small kid wanting to have a piece of candy.
“Okay. You won.” He said and back away but not alone. He took my hand and pulled me into him.
“You didn’t give me my kiss.”
“Lair! You just kissed me the moment I step out of the bathroom.”
“That was a morning kiss. What about my afternoon kiss?”
He’s really impossible!
“You’re a bad boy. You’re not getting it.” I laughed and freed myself from his hold and went downstairs.
We spent the whole day there at Edan’s parent’s house. His mother asked me a little about myself, my family and my future ambitions. I was shocked when she talked to me.
I was nervous replying to her. But I kept a composed behavior. I kept on smiling and answered each of her questions boldly. She simply nodded.
Edan dropped me at my home at 8 pm. He said to pack up my things because I’ll be moving to his place tomorrow. I again tried to convince him to just leave the whole idea of moving in but he said it’s final. He won’t hear anything now so I just give in.
I was waiting for him at a stranded and a deserted bar. By the appearance of the bar, it could be easily guessed that civilized citizens will never think of coming here. Two men whose bodies were covered with tattoos and had long beards were drinking whiskey, a girl whose hair was dyed pink and blue was sitting beside them chewing a bubble gum and popping the bubble every now and then. A bartender was present. He had piercings in his ears and in his eyebrows.
They looked like killers or great robbers.
A sudden panic rushed throughout my body.
Why would he want to see me in a
place like this?
What does he want?
I was wondering when I saw him enter. He was wearing a mask around his face to hide the lower part of his face. His eyes visible. A cap placed on his head and he was wearing a long coat.
“Listen to me.” He said while sitting in front of me.
“Why have you called me here?” I questioned looking at him.
“Its none of your business why I have called you here. Just stick to the plan.” He snapped making me flinch.
“What you want now? I have been keeping an eye on them.”
“I want you to act fast. I can’t wait any longer.” He said coldly. His eyes like daggers.
“But he will ruin me. I’ll lose my job.” I was afraid of what he might do to me.
I agreed on helping him to succeed his plans.
“I’ll pay you the double of your salary. Just do this work.” He glared, giving me a dangerous threat.
He gave me an envelope. My eyes wide opened on seeing the amount in it.
“OK. I’ll do it.”
