?Elva’s POV?

A week has passed in a blur,my ankle is healed completely and i can walk very fine now,my head is now free of bandage but it still showed a small scar which Fleur assured me that it will soon fade.
We’ve gotten closer during the week and everyone is doing fine.

I slid my feet into my slippers before going out of my room..I just had my morning bath,clad in a big white wool blouse with pink leggings.

I scurried towards the kitchen,i started cooking lessons with Mig a day before..He offered to teach me since i lag slightly in cooking, so i had to join Mig in the kitchen anytime he’s preparing a meal and i can boldly prepare few meals now.
“Hey Mig good morning” I greeted on entering the kitchen.

He’s resting his back on the kitchen counter with with his hands folded beneath his chest.

He’s clad in a pair of tight faded jeans which brought out the shape of his perfectly carved legs, with a blue shirt..the shirt’s long sleeves were rolled down to his elbow,he left few buttons undone and the sight of his broad chest filled with black curly hair almost made me drool.

“Good morning Elva” His toned voice interrupted my thoughts.
“Sorry for keeping you waiting Mig”
“No you didn’t, i just got in here few minutes ago..Let’s get started” He said and we both picked up our aprons.

“We are making two kinds of pasta for breakfast” He said and i nodded.
We washed our hands in the sink before we started and it was fun like it has always been.
We finished making the two kinds of pasta and the aroma filled the whole kitchen, probably the whole house..

I’m glad i grabbed one or two things even with way Mig’s open che$t kept distracting me..He had tied the apron so low that it just covered only his stomach down to his knee and i can’t help but notice the exposed che$t.

‘Did he do that intentionally?..Well if he did then he definitely gat me’ I thought and smirked.
“Why the smirk ?” I heard Mig asked and flinched.
“Uh..Uh..Uhm” I stammered with heat rushing to my cheek.

“It’s okay…You will cook the meals i’ve been teaching you tomorrow so i can note how better you’ve become” He said and i nodded.

He dished out the pasta in our plates and remained some for Fleur as usual.


We both carried our meal with glass cup of water to the dining after we finished washing the utensils and cleaning the kitchen.
We sat and began to eat..
“Wow this is delicious” I said shoving more pasta into my mouth.

“Yes that’s the reason it’s one of my best meals” Mig smiled.
We finished eating and i gulped water.

I took the dishes to the kitchen and started tending to it.

I dried my hands after i’m done and walked out to meet Mig in the living room.

“Geez. He has peeled off his shirt completely,hanged it on the arm of the couch he was laying on.
His face was upwards with his eyes closed.

I went to sit on a different couch, trying to keep my eyes off him,but my prying eyes danced around.

He’s nked down to his waist,the broad lines of his chest matted with black curly hair down further to his hard flat stomach ..
I sat still..
He’s just so appealing.

My gaze went up to his sleeping face and i almost cried..Mig is so handsome just like a roman god,his features are damn perfect and he has the body every model would love to pay billions of dollars for..

His lips…oh God.
‘what am i thinking’ I scolded myself..

I need to tell Fleur to find me a job,i can’t be sitting idle all day thinking negatively and end up doing the unthinkable.
“How about we go for a ride” Mig suddenly said sitting up.


He must have caught me staring….
“A..a ride ?” I asked to be sure.

“Yes i plan on getting a few things from the grocery store,if you don’t mind coming along” He said.

“Of course..I don’t mind” I said trying to hide my excitement..
We both stood up and he picked up his shirt putting it back on.

We stepped out of the house,Mig locked the door and we walked towards the small car parked in the compound.

We hopped in and Mig started driving.
I grinned happily as he drove past places, we are both sitting at the front,Mig on the driver’s seat and i on the passenger’s seat.

He drove into hills,and i kept staring at everything in astonishment. This is my first time out of the house.

I love the natural things surrounding us,i couldn’t stop grinning and asking Mig questions..He answered them all with a smile.

He pulled into the grocery store and parked in a free space..I sulked wishing he will continue driving.

We got down and walked in,It’s quite big with a lot of things on display….I noticed people couldn’t keep their eyes off us or rather Mig…Haha.

Any one who can’t give Mig a second glance is surely blind.

I followed behind as Mig picked the list of things he needs into the shopping basket..

He finished shopping and walked to the counter..He paid and the cashier who kept licking her lips,her mouth widening with a smile..and i don’t know why i suddenly felt like ripping her hair from her scalp.

We walked back to the car,each of us carrying a shopping nylon.

Mig dropped it in the back seat before we hopped in the front.
Mig drove out of the grocery store.

The ride home was more fun..Mig and i kept chatting till we got home.

A small frown appeared on my face when Mig pulled into the compound..I wish he would keep driving on.

We stepped out of the car,carried the shopping nylon and walked towards the door.
“I hope you enjoyed the ride ?” Mig asked.
” Yes Mig,i love it” I said and he smiled.
We stepped onto the front porch and i saw a look cross Mig’s face.
“Is Fleur in ? because i remembered locking the door before we went for the ride.

“Maybe she’s in because she’s the second person that has the key” I said and he nodded.
We opened the door and entered the living room.

“What! We exclaimed at the sight in front of us.
