My joy knew no bounds when I saw him.
I quickly ran into his arms and held him tight
If I could stay here forever, I definitely will
I miss him so much
We unlocked from the kiss and he stared into my eyes
Adrian : I miss my blue eyes
Then he kissed my eyes
I hugged him again and stayed there
Clint cleared his throat and we looked at him
Clint : you guys might wanna go inside and continue your lovey lovey dicey
I chuckled and pulled Adrian inside.
Adrian : how did you get here Blue?
Me: it’s a long story. Sit down, let me get you a drink.
He sat down and I left.
Clint followed me with a cigarette in his hand
I entered the kitchen and placed my hands on the kitchen table.
I sighed deeply
I suddenly became very nervous
My heart was beating loud enough to hear
Clint leaned on the wall beside the door and watched me while smoking
I nervously washed the cups and poured out some drinks.
My hands were shaking
Clint : you’re scared aren’t you?
I looked at him and nodded innocently
He smiled and moved towards me
Clint : you love him right?
Clint : and I’m sure he loves you too
I nodded again
Clint : don’t be scared to tell him about your misfortune. From the way I’ve seen him, he’ll understand you
Then he kissed my forehead and left.
I breathed in and took the drinks to the living room.
Adrian was looking at the blue flowers on the mantelpiece
Adrian : yeah baby
I handed the cup over to him and sat down.
He sat beside me
That was when I saw his arm
Me: baby, your arm. It’s still not really okay
Adrian : yes it isn’t. I’m not supposed to be out of the hospital yet but that place sucks
I touched the arm and he looked at me and whispered
Adrian :wanna heal it
I laughed and he pulled me to himself
He dropped the drink and made me drop mine too
Adrian : I need some medication right now
Me: I can’t heal it Adrian. Clint saw it already
Adrian : who’s Clint? The weird guy
Adrian : where did you know him from? I don’t like the looks of him
I sighed deeply
Me: Adrian he’s the guy that kidnapped me
His eyes popped open
Adrian : what?
I swallowed the lump in my throat
Me: he was hired to kill me but he spared me
Adrian : OMG. Who the hell hired him?
Adrian : tell me
Me: it’s Princess Gladys. She even came to his house and asked him to show her my body. But he lied to her and sent her away. Then he brought me here because it’s safer
Adrian : gosh! How dare she do this? She’s such a bitch! That’s what she is. She dared to take you away from me? I’m going to kill that witch
Then he smashed the cup from the table to the floor
I closed my eyes
Adrian : is she responsible for Derek’s death too? Is she?
His tone was angry, harsh and venomous
I opened my eyes and saw that his own eyes were already red
His veins popped out and his muscles were stiff.
Adrian : I’m talking to you Blue
He grabbed my hand and tightened his grip.
Me: ouch Adrian you’re hurting me please
He released his grip and looked away
Adrian : I’m sorry….
I moved closer to him and hugged his injured arm
I could see he was at the verge of tears
I kissed his arm, below the bandage
Me: baby, cheer up. Derek’s not dead yet
He abruptly turned and looked at me
Adrian : what?
Me: he’s in coma. It was Clint that shot him and he said he didn’t shoot a delicate place so he can’t die
His face brightened up
Adrian : please tell me you’re not joking
Me: will I joke about a thing like this?
He laughed and hugged me
Adrian : I’m so happy. I thought I lost the both of you. But why was he declared dead?
Me: because of some security reasons. Only his immediate family knows
He smiled brightly and stared at my lips ????
Me: don’t look at them
I playfully covered his eyes and he held my waist
I laughed as he used his mouth to trace my face
He found my lips and engulfed them
I held his neck and kissed him back
He carried me and made me sit on his thighs.
I held him tight and kissed his neck
Adrian : first time you’re doing that
I laughed and bite his neck
Adrian : ouch……
We laughed and he tickled my back
The door opened and it was Belinda.
She went to get some groceries.
Bel: oh my gosh Adrian….
She dropped her grocery bags and came towards us.
I quickly jumped off him and he stood up and hugged her
Bel: I’m so glad you’re safe
Adrian : yeah, I’m really happy to see you. You’re now a woman. Not the girl who always has a fight with Derek
Adrian : so you stay here too
Bel: this is actually my home. I ran away from Scotland
Adrian : why??
Me: Princess Gladys…..
He was surprised and looked at me
Bel: it’s a long story though. We’ll talk later. Where’s Clint?
Me: check the yard. Let me help you with those
Adrian : let me help too
He came to carry a bag but I stopped him
Me: no no no PR..I..N..CE.. Adrian.
I stressed the Prince to he’ll know that he’s a prince and he’s not supposed to be doing things like this
Bel: hahaha, yeah Prince Adrian. Your highness should be resting. Allow us the subjects to do our duty
We laughed and Bel and I took the bags to the kitchen.
I sat down on the sofa with a smile on my face
I didn’t let the anger I felt towards Gladys make me irritable.
I bowed my head and Imagined myself kissing Blue again
I smiled and licked my lips
Me: Blue what did you do to me?
I rested my head on the top of the sofa and closed my eyes
Blue came back into the room and sat on my legs
I looked at her and she placed her hands on my Adam’s apple.
Me: soft hands
I laid my hand on her hands
I made her lie down on my chest and she wrapped her hands round my body
Me: baby, what happened to your hair
Blue : uhmm, well. It was during the kidnap. Uhh, Clint actually
Me: he touched your hair?? Why??
Blue : calm down baby. I don’t know why he did it but I like it
I sighed and touched the hair
Me: well it’s nice
I massaged her back and she smiled.
Then I saw a blue dot behind her neck
I touched it
Me: what’s this Blue dot?
Blue : huh, blue dot? Oh my goodness. It’s my birth mark
Me: what?? You have a weird birth mark??
She sat up and took her hand back and touched it
Blue : it’s magical. It’s one of the reasons my name is Blue
Me: wow. Is it supposed to be seen by everyone?
Blue : no it’s not. My hair always hid it but now, I really don’t know how to hide it
Me: how are we sure the others haven’t seen it?
Me: you need clothes that will hide it. How about turtle necks
Me: okay, I’ll order them online for you
I pulled her and kissed her cheek
Blue : there’s something you need to know?
Me: what’s that??
She sighed and held me tighter
She also closed her eyes
Me: baby, is something wrong with?
I felt warm liquid sinking in, through my shirt
I quickly brought up her head
Me: Blue, why are you crying?
She didn’t answer
I became scared
Did another terrible thing happen?
Or is it about her bracelet?
Me: baby if it’s about your bracelet, it’s with me. You didn’t loose it
Blue : it’s not about the bracelet
Me: then what is it? Tell me baby
Blue : will you leave me?
Me: what? No, I can’t. I’m in love with you. I want you forever. There’s nothing that can make me leave you
She wiped her tears
Blue : something happened to me?
Me: tell me what it is baby. I won’t leave you. I’ll stand by you. Talk to me. We’re in this together baby
Her tears still flowed
I pulled her head closer and kissed her passionately
I wanted her to feel free and tell me anything
I wanted her to know that I’m hers and she could confide in me
Her stopped kissing her and looked into her eyes
Blue : I… I… I’m no longer a.. A virgin
I released her and she shivered and closed her eyes
She opened them again and tears flowed out
Blue : I was raped during the kidnap. Clint didn’t know I was a virgin. He was not on our side then. I got raped by him. But he apologized already. He said he was sorry.
Please don’t leave me
I’m sorry please
My eyes widened
I was angry a little
Well I didn’t even know she was a virgin
But the thought of my Blue Maid being raped by some weirdo was driving me crazy.
I wanted to kill him
And it would have been awesome if my Blue was still a virgin for me
I would have felt really special
But now it’s not going to be so
I screamed loudly and closed my eyes
She fell off my legs and began to cry on the floor
I opened my eyes and the sight of my princess crying pulled my heart out
I called her and sat beside her on the floor
I hugged her tight and kissed her forehead
Me: it’s okay baby, it’s okay. I’m not gonna leave you okay. I’m still here for you
She looked up at me and I wiped her tears with my thumb
Blue : you’re not angry?
Me: well, I’m truly hurt but there’s nothing I can do about it. The deed is done already. But I’m still glad that if we’re gonna be intimate someday, I’ll be the first person you’ll be willing with right?
She nodded and I smiled and kissed her
Me: so don’t cry over spilled milk baby. I love you so much
Blue : I love you too
I hugged her
Me: but I’m still gonna do something to Clint
Blue : what??
I stood up and pulled her to follow me
We went to the yard and found Clint smoking
Me: hey Clint
He looked at me and I moved to him and gave him a punch on his face
His lips broke and began to bleed.
He looked at me in surprise
Me: that’s for taking what belongs to me
Blue gasped and looked at me in surprise
I looked at Clint as he touched his mouth
Me: you deserved it
Clint : yeah, totally
I laughed and punched him
He gave me a fist pump
Me: we’re good??
He nodded and smiled
Clint : yeah, we’re good
I looked at her and carried her up
Me: let’s go have a fun time baby
Blue : what are we going to do?
Me: you’ll know…..
