(She likes him,
but he’s cold-hearted😈)
By: Faith Lucky
I felt my heart racing so fast as I stared at it.
He was backing the wall, but suddenly turned to look at me.
Oh my God! His face was completely streaked with blood.
“Cali” he called in a disgruntled tone.
Oh, my God!
My legs were becoming too weak to stand.
He covered his face with his palms and immediately, the sides of the office started burning.
Okay; maybe…I really shouldn’t be here.
I turned to the door and tried opening it but discovered it was jam locked from outside.
Goodness! Maybe I should scream
The fire began to increase and so did my fears.
I turned back to Miquel and he was coming close to me – wearing a deadly look.
What have I done?
“What’re you still doing here, Cali?” He roared.
“I THOUGHT I ASKED YOU TO LEAVE!!!!”
His voice was so thunderous that I felt the office shake.
“Arghhhh” I shut my eyes and screamed unconsciously and in fear and didn’t realize when I jumper on him.
At that moment, I felt I was jumping on something else – for comfort and rescue.
“Please, stop it!!” I cried and hugged him tight, my hands and legs wrapped around him.
“You’re scaring me”.
Tears dripped from my eyes to his shirt as I sniffed and wept. I didn’t mind the fact I was also getting stained by his blood.
The flames and everything made me really scared that I didn’t realize how dangerous it was hugging him at that moment. I didn’t know what else to do.
I shut my eyes and whimpered, feeling so terrified.
Why was he this way? What sort of anger was this? Could it be normal?
I held him tight, squeezing his shirt along.
I was beginning to lose balance and felt I might fall off from his body. But slowly, I felt a hand hold me by the waist, pulling me close and stopping me from falling off.
I opened my eyes slightly and discovered he was the one holding me.
He was hugging me back!
I flinched when I also noticed the fire was reducing drastically. The flames were going down!
My eyes dilated in shock and I felt it was best not to leave him.
We remained that way for a long time, hugging each other.
And slowly, he walked me to a wall and dropped me carefully on my feet.
We were still standing very close to each other and I stared into his face.
“I’m sorry” he mumbled and I felt my heart skip.
Is he really apologizing to me?
I gulped nervously as the words pierced into my heart and quickly, I lifted my palms to my face and dried my tears.
He sat on the floor next to the wall and shut his eyes, squeezing out more blood. Thank goodness the fire had really gone down a lot.
In no time, itd be completely off.
I decided to join him and sat next to him on the floor.
“Thank you” I said whisperingly, but he didn’t look at me.
Why do I have a feeling this anger of his isn’t normal? Or could it be part of his powers?
How can someone bleed when he’s angry? And can burn down an entire building huh? How?
He remained quiet for a long time, his head lowered to towards the floor.
Suddenly, an idea struck at me and I took off my shirt.
He snapped his neck to look at me in surprise, but his surprise lessened when he discovered I had an inner vest.
I took off the shirt, folded it and took it closer to his face. He threw his face backwards, trying to resist.
“Its….it’s fine. I just want to…” I paused and gestured the rag and he gave me access.
I brought it to his face and started wiping off the blood stains.
G0sh! I couldn’t believe this was my handsome face. I wish he could get rid of this anger of his.
I wiped off the blood from his eyes, nostrils, lips….awwn!
I did my best, but couldn’t wipe it off completely as traces of blood still stayed on his face.
“Um…sir, I think you’ll need to take a bath” I told him but he didn’t reply.
Well, that was expected.
I kept the blood – soaked shirt beside me and fiddled with my fingers.
“Let’s go” he suddenly said and stood on his feet.
My heart leapt for joy as I also stood up with him, taking the shirt along.
We started towards the door and before we got it, it went open on its own.
We walked out of the office and discovered the entire place was empty.
Like….empty. Every single person had ran out.
And come to think of it…..I was the only one who stayed behind.
We got to where his bag was, I picked it up and we proceeded out of the building together.

Authoress Chi’s Pov:
In the dark,
Two women could be seen discussing secretly.
“Do you think the decisions of the council are wise enough?” One of them asked.
“I don’t think so. It’s totally uncalled for and senseless. The throne has been empty for years now. It needs a king”the other replied angrily.
“But what do we do now? Either of them are home. And who would fit the throne?”
“Don’t talk like you don’t know what’s right, Miranda. That’s the throne of darkness. And only the one with the darkest heart can ascend it. The darkness in Miquel’s heart is increasing by the day and he’s the right one for it”.
“Yes, you’re right. Miquel’s the right one for it. The beast in him keeps growing and I’m sure he’d fit the throne. But…what if something overcomes the darkness?”
“Oh! Please, you know thats not possible. Only true love can overcome the darkness. And as we all know, its impossible for Miquel to fall in love”.
“But how are we sure he isn’t in love yet? He hasn’t come home in years”.
“No. Can’t you see the cycle? The darkness in him is increasing. And soon, he’ll be home to ascend the throne”.
