( His royal Excellency)



Forty- three

I sat on the bed waiting for him to get out of the shower. I looked in the mirror and my hair was all frizzy.

I lai-d down and sighed looking at the ceiling. These are my last days of conscious before my surgery. Joshua has always asked me tons of questions about my past but he’s never told me much about his and I want to know.

I feel water trickling on my legs and see Joshua standing at the foot of the bed with a towel hanging dangerously low on his waist.

“Are you sleeping?” He chuckled as he walked over to his dresser.
“No I’m just thinking” I sit up.

“About what?” He drops his towel and proceeds to get dressed.

“Don’t get mad when I ask”

He pulled on his T-shirt and looked at me. “You know I’m going to get mad. What did you do?”

“Nothing!” I laughed. “Nothing, I just wanted to know about your birth parents”

He combed his fingers through his hair and took his time. “My mother and father were drug addicts, I was in and out of foster homes and I was adopted when I was fourteen”

“Are Max and Maxwell adopted too?”

“Who was first?”

“Max then Maxwell then me”

“Is it just the three of you?”

His jaw tighten and he hesitated to answer. “Yes”

I smirked and crawled toward him. “Is that the truth?”

He licked his lips and looked at mine. “Nope” He said popping the p.

“Then tell me the truth”

He groaned and moved uncomfortably. “Valentina, what are you doing to me?”

“I’m asking questions?”
“Let’s skip the questions, let’s just not okay” He leaned down to kiss my neck but I moved away.

“Stop always wanting to have sex with me! I want to talk to you”

“Okay what else?” He pulled on the bottom of my shorts.

“Um” I removed his hands from my shorts and sat down on the bed, looking up at him. “Who else? What’s other siblings do you have?”

“Another brother”

“Have I met him?”


“He was adopted too?”

I paused. “Oh, so he’s your real brother? Why didn’t you tell me? Why haven’t I met him yet?”

“Because I’m not close with him, Valentina. Are you done?” He said loudly. I can tell he’s mad.

“You said you wouldn’t get mad”

“I’m not mad” he softened up. “But I just don’t want to talk about it. Later, okay?”

“No, when are we gonna talk about it?”

“I don’t know”

“Exactly. We can’t keep pushing things under the rug. I told you about my father and you’ve always stuck your nose into that business”

“But that’s dif-”

“That’s not different” I cut him off. “I just want to know more about you. You always keep me wondering”

“That’s how I keep you” he smirked. I looked outside and it was dark out. “Fine” he sighed. He sat down and scratched his head. “Uh- where do I begin?” He asked.

“What were your parents like?” I leaned in close to him to let him know I was paying close attention to everything he was saying.

“My mother and father abused me. My dad was an alcoholic and my mom was a drug addict. They stole from me, they took the money I made and gave me nothing. The only things I had in my room were a mattress and a Spider-Man poster on the wall” he chuckled to himself. “Um, when I was ten I pretty much stayed at a…confidants house and worked until I turned fourteen”

“What happened when you turned fourteen?”

“Child protection services got me” he swallowed. “They put me in a group home and Jasper and Jess scooped me up”

“I’m sorry” I said touched his arm.

He smiled. “Nothing to be sorry about. I’m fine now”

“Have you reconnected with them or-”

“No, no, no, it’s your turn now” he cut me off.
“I have no more information, I’m sorry” I smiled.

“No you wanted to talk so lets talk” he stood up.

“About what?” I asked. I got on my knees so I could be the save level as his face. I pressed myself against him and moved my lips closer to his.

“You can’t distract me, Ms. Matrix” he smirked while looking at my lips.

“Oh really?” I raised my eyebrow.

“Nope I’m a very persistent man-”

I cut him off by slamming my lips onto his. I slid my tongue into his mouth and and he let out a small groan, satisfying me.

“Valentina” he groaned. I ignored him and pulled his shirt off.

“Valentina” he said again. I sucked on his bottom lip. He finally gave in and laid me down on the bed.

I love Joshua and I really do hope this surgery is worth it. No one else is more important to them him.


“Hey!” I smiled as he opened the door. John looked at me and smiled. “I brought donuts”

I held the box in front of me. He looked past the door and around me. “Is your boy toy here?”

“You’re my boy toy” I chuckled. “Let me in”

He stepped aside and i walked in. “You look good” he said heading to the kitchen with the donuts.

“Thank you” I said quietly while sitting down. I know he’s lying, I looked in the mirror and I look sick.


“Tomorrow’s a big day” he said. “You’re ready for it” he told me.

“You’re right” I sighed opening the donuts box. “I got you Boston Creme, it’s your favorite”

He looked inside the box. “Ew” he picked up the donut and rubbed a tissue on it. “There’s jelly on it”

“Joshua likes jelly”

“Gross. He’s a gross man”

“I know” I agreed sarcastically as I put the gazed donuts in my mouth.

“Should you really be eating?”

“Oh yea the doctor said I can’t eat past 5 pm”
“Then lets go get something to eat”

“I kind of want to stay in” I said politely. “I’ve been out a lot this week I’m a little pooped”

He sighed and walked into the bedroom. I stood up and followed him. “What’s wrong with you?” I asked.


“Seriously John you haven’t treated me like this since…” Since he’s been with April. He always acted uninterested in me when he was with April. He would yell at me, get angry for no reason and push me out. April is just bad news, she’s poison. “Oh my God, are you back with April?”

“No, God no Valentina, I just… have been feeling off”
“When did it start?” I asked.

“When you first met him”

“Oh!” I groaned and rubbed my face. “I know John, I know you don’t like him but don’t you love me enough to consider that I do? I love you enough to let you hate him and talk about him!” He shook his head. “I didn’t mess with you when you were with April!”

“Don’t bring her into this”

“Don’t defend her!” I yelled. “She walked out on you, I stayed… what does that tell you?”

“Goodness three years and you’re still sore about the whole thing?”

I looked at him and stayed quiet for a while. “She’s not coming back” I said with tears in my eyes.

“I can’t stand him being with you” I just stared at him while he talked. “The thought of him touching you…” he shook his head and swallowed hard. “… it sickens me”

“Why are you saying all this?”

He looked sad as he looked at the ground. “I just want you to be happy”

“I am happy”

“It tells me that I’m too late, aren’t I?” he said answering an old question.

“To late for what?”

“She’s coming back” he said looking at me. “She’s coming back”

He’s still holding onto the home that she will. But she’s never coming back. “Why do you hate him so much? What has he done to you?” I asked referring to Joshua.

“I know the type of guy he is. He’s going to hurt you, one way or another”

“Why are you so sure about that?”

“Because that’s who he is Valentina!” he yelled. “He f**ks girls and he gets money!” John doesn’t get mad often but when he does it’s scary, there’s like another side of him. He just lets out all his anger and he can’t stop, he’ll destroy everything if he gets bad enough.

“And that’s who she f****ng ran off with!” he continued yelling. “Your f****ng Joshua”

“April ran off with Joshua!” he yelled slower so i could “understand” him. I frowned not understanding all of what he’s trying to say. “I know him, personally”

“You know Joshua?”


“Even before the auction, you knew him?”

“Yes, f**k”

“Watch your tone with me” I said sternly. “How do you know Joshua? How come you never told me?” I bambarded him with questions.

“He was the one April ran off with, he was the one that stole her from me”

“April was a whore she would’ve left with anybody, and how do you know it was Joshua? And when was this?”

“A week before the auction, April and I were at a party she was drunk”

“As usual” I interupped.

“He asked if April and I were a couple and when I said yes he apologized. He said that he had already f**ked her and that he was on to the next one. Then I couldn’t find April at the party and she didn’t come home”

I bit down on my teeth. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

“It wasn’t a big deal until I saw him at the auction and when he bidded for you I just knew he was going to use you”

“He’s not like that now. He’s changed”
“You can’t change people, Valentina. They just say you have so you’ll shut up. April said it to me all the time”

“So what do you want me to do?” I asked. “Break up with him because April was a whore? Not my fault. Why did you even tell me? Was that supposed to change how I feel?”

When he didn’t answer I spoke again. “He didn’t do anything to me, he did something to you”

“Okay” he nodded. “Alright”

If he has more to say he better say it because I need to know the full truth. “Is that it?”

“No” he said. His eyes were watery and he was shaking. “But you don’t care so…”

“No it’s okay Valentina. Maybe-” he stopped himself.

Now I feel bad. I’m always doing something wrong. I walked over to him and hugged him. It took him a while to hug me back but he did and he didn’t let go. “I love you John”

“I love you too Valentina, I love you so much”
