(He’s Cold – hearted,
but he’s mine?)
By: Faith Lucky
I didn’t even realize when I called out his name.
Mykel pulled me back immediately.
“Hey; what are you doing? You really think he can hear you from there? You should hope nobody heard you from a distance” he said huskily and looked around quickly.
I couldn’t take my eyes off Miquel as I stared at him with so much desires. My Miquel was right there in front of me! He was there!!
Looking so….handsome and royal….but in a different way.
A strange craving and desire to hold him suddenly clouded me and I turned swiftly to look at Mykel.
“How do we get in? How do we get to him?” Desperation and impatience was clearly resounding from my voice.
He sighed and inserted his hands into his trouser pockets.
“Its not gonna be easy, Cali. First, we can’t climb through the fence, that’s impossible. Secondly, we can’t just walk through the gate cause its gonna be really risky”.
I turned to look at Miquel and noticed he was already walking away.
Oh my God!! He was walking away!!.
I watched bitterly and anxiously as he finally got lost.
“How risky?” I turned to Mykel and ask immediately.
“Well….really risky. Because the guards would have to interrogate you heavily. And if you’re found suspicious, you’ll be arrested and probably killed” he replied, but it didn’t seem to freak me a bit.
Not when Miquel’s involved.
“What if I go in as a maid?” I asked.
“Wouldn’t that be better? I can get access to see the King, right?”
“A what? Are you okay? You can’t possibly go in as a maid, Cali. What if you get caught?”
“And I can’t believe you’re concerned about my well being. How hilarious” I scoffed and started walking away.
“Hey; Cali. Cali” he called and ran after me.
I didn’t turn to look at him but just continued walking away
“Seriously Cali?” He asked, but I still ignored him.
We climbed down the hill and I still continued on my way.
“Okay; fine! Fine! You can go in okay? When you’re done, you meet me right at the hill. But don’t say I didn’t warn you” he said audibly, but I still didn’t turn to look at him as I proceeded on my way.
It was a very long walk from the hill to the gate, but thankfully, I arrived there.
The gates were actually wide open, but the guards were something else – fully armed.
From the look in their eyes, nobody told me to stop walking when I got to where they were.
At some point, I actually became a bit scared.
“Who are you?” The first guard asked grumpily and I swallowed hard.
“I’m…I’m one of the maids, mister. I had to go out to get something” I replied, trying as much as possible to cloak my nervousness.
“To get what?” Another asked, obviously because my hands were empty.
“Um…some herbs. But unfortunately, I couldn’t get the ones I needed. So, I’m back to report to the mistress” I replied and they exchanged glances at each other.
For goodness sake, they ushered me in!!
“You can come in”, the first one said and paved way for me to pass and as I did, I released the long breath I’d been holding the whole tome.
G0sh! Thank goodness.
I walked in and couldn’t help but admire the beauty of the place. But considering the fact it was restraining my Miquel from me, I still hated it.
I walked so slowly, wondering what else I’d do to get closer to Miquel.
The maids…I needed to mingle with them first. I couldn’t just go to the king empty handed.
There were lots of people moving around with baskets, bags, so many things. And I stopped one of them.
“Hi. Um….where can I find the royal kitchen, please?” I asked.
She looked a little reluctant and suspicious but instantly, I gained access to her thoughts and got the direction.
“Don’t worry. I remember now” I waved her off and continued walking.
I took the directions I’d gotten from the woman’s head – left, left and right.
And in no time, found myself in a wide open space.
Is this what their kitchen looks like??
I stood confused at the entrance. I mean….they were so many of them – as busy as bees.
So many pots were on the fire which were made with local wood.
Suddenly, someone pushed me from behind and I turned to see it was a grumpy looking woman.
“Hey! Who are you? And why’re you just standing there?” She asked, beady eyed.
I quickly went through her thoughts and discovered they were expecting a new maid for the day. Nana.
“I’m….I’m Nana” I told her, hoping I was f**king convincing enough.
“Nana?” She repeated.
“But Bradley said Nana had bigger eyes.
“Anyway, come in. Come in. There are so much to do” she said hastily and walked in and I sluggishly followed.
The place was looking so new and strange to me.
“I need three more girls over here!” She announced and clapped her hands and immediately, three girls scuttled to where she was.
Hm. She was obviously the one in charge.
“Here. Take these trays to the throne room immediately. Be fast” she clapped her hands again and we started taking the trays one after the other.
I had the tray containing blueberries.
And…hold on; did she just say the throne room??
That should be Miquel’s location, right?
Oh my God!
I held the properly and scurried out with the rest of the maids.
Please, this should be it. This should be my opportunity of meeting Miquel.
“Ma’am Hanuel is so grumpy today, isn’t she?” I overheard two of the maids mumble.
“Not just today. She’s always been so bossy” the other replied, rather pissed off.
I shot them a stare and decided to ignore since they were the least of my problems.
We walked for a long time,,climbed some stairs and finally, got in front of a very large door which looked just like a gate.
There were armed guards in front of it and we stopped walking as the guards inspected us.
When they were done, they signalled the third among them to open the door and he did and we got access into the massive room.
My eyes itched at first cause of the light, but not until I spotted him sitting on what looked like a throne.
My lips helplessly dropped open in shock and excitement as I stared at him – My Miquel.
Oh my God!!
