I SOLD MY V.
( His royal Excellency)
???? MAXWELL ????
“Hi Nessie” I greeted her.
“How was it?” She asked me.
“Eventful” I said truthfully since it really was.
“Would you like anything?” she took my jacket and followed me to the kitchen.
“Oh I’m just going to get a bottle of water, I’ll be in the room” I said grabbing it out the fridge and walking toward the stairs. I walked into my room and changed my clothes and climbed on the bed to get some work done.
I open my computer and pay all my bills online, I write some emails, and I schedule an appointment for my mothers first chemotherapy. I called my mother to tell her to be ready Saturday morning.
Just as I was getting off the phone Mr. Maxwell walked in the room.
“I want to talk to you” he said as he walked over to me. I looked up at him and waited for him to speak. “Why did you run off?”
“I- don’t know” I stuttered. “I thought I knew him”
“Who did he look like?”
“I don’t know he just had a familiar face” I lied and looked at my computer. He lifted my face with his hand and peered into my eyes.
“Where did you go?” He asked not moving his hand.
My heart pounded as I answered. “I went to the bathroom”
“For an hour?”
“I walked around, and I met someone”
“Who?” he asked quickly and removed his hand.
“Um…” I tried to think of his name but I couldn’t remember. “I can’t remember” he walked away and took off his jacket. “But he said he knew you and…”
“And what?” He started taking off his clothes so I looked away.
“You stole from him?” I opened my water and took a sip. I remembered to take my medicine so while he was turned around I popped one in my mouth and swallowed.
“What?” He turned around and looked at me.
“That’s what he said” I said closing my bottle and tapping away at my computer.
“I don’t want you to talk to him” he put on some shorts and sat on the bed.
“Why not? He seems nice”
“He’s not” he snapped at me.
“Why are you so mad?” I said closing my computer. “I just talked to him”
“Do you not understand English?”
“No, I don’t” I stood up and began to walk to the door but he pulled me into his lap.The intensity is real. I’m sitting on his lap staring intently into his eyes but I’m not moving, I don’t know why I’m just not.
My heart nearly jumps out of my chest when his hands travel down to my butt.
“I hate when you run away from me” he whispered.
“Then stop staying stupid things” I said boldly and tried to get off of him but he squeezed me tighter.
“So what I say is stupid?”
“Sometimes” I tried to pry his hands open so I could move.
“Like when I couldn’t read my book” I stopped trying when I couldn’t go anywhere.
“Because I was trying to sleep” he said calmly.
“At eleven at night? That’s too early”
“You go to bed too late that’s why you can’t sleep at night” I frowned at him. “You think I can’t feel you moving around?”
“No cause you should be sleep, can you please let me go?”
I felt him stare at the side of my face while just look stupidly around the room and tapped my cold fingers on my arm.
His hand slid up my leg to my center. I was going to stop him but… this might be it. He might take my flower right now then I could go home with my mother.
I let him continue to explore my body as I looked into his eyes. I wanted to look away but I couldn’t. He’s staring at me with such intensity that it makes me want him more then I’ve ever wanted anybody.
“Why did you do it?” I asked suddenly.
“Spend all this money for something you can get from any girl” he looked confused. “Why pay for it?”
He clenched his jaw and started to speak. “When I first saw you I saw passion”
He is so beautiful when he speaks. The way his tongue hits his teeth and his face muscles flex. The way his eyebrows are curled into concern right now. “I saw so much more than what those other men saw and I didn’t want them to hurt you”
Hurt me? This isn’t a relationship this is a business deal, supposed to be a one time thing.
“How do I know you won’t?”
“What do you mean?”
“You seem conceited”
“I like control”
“So your a freak?” I raised my eyebrows.
“No, I just like getting what I want”
“And you wanted me?”
“So you could hurt me?”
“Then why are you keeping me here?” He looked away but I pulled his face back to look at me. I like touching him. “I have so much to do already”
“Take care of my mother after her treatments, go back to work so I can start paying you back and-”
“You’re not paying me back” he cut me off.
“Yes I am” I turned to look at him.
“I gave you that money for a reason” he said strictly.
“I know but did you really think I would keep all your money after she’s better?” I chuckled.
“Yea that’s why you sighed the contract”
I tried even harder to get out of his grasp but he just pulled me tighter. “Let me go Mr. Max-”
“Stop calling me by my last name” he mumbled into my neck.
“Let me go first”
“Are you gonna listen to me, Valentina?”
“Yes” I laughed.
“You’re beautiful” he said nonchalantly.
“Stop” I said trying even harder to get away from him. I don’t like where this is going.
“You are, Valentina” he stood up and looked deep into my eyes. “You’re a wonderful person”
“You don’t know that”
“And why not?” He teased me by touching my bottom lip with his thumb.
“Because you don’t know me” I shrugged.
