(She danced for the King)
"You're sleeping with doctor Stephen?" My eyes were dilated in shock.
No maybe I didn't hear that well. I probably didn't.
"Yes. Okay, I like him. But he's yet to ask me out and it really eating me up." She scowl.
"Doctor Stephen?" I said again.
"What's there? It nothing new okay. The condom you asked about in the party...it was I and him who used it. And stop staring at me that way okay? Am not a child. Am twenty-five for goodness sake."
"I can't believe this. You've been sleeping with him all this while and you couldn't even tell me?" I answered furiously.
"Hey! I thought it wasn't time to tell you. So I kept it to myself." She concluded.
"So, should I call this, workers with staffs with benefits." I tittered.
"Yeah, maybe. You should get a boyfriend Elena. You're getting old now." She nudged me.
"Thanks but am not sure am gonna have a boyfriend yet. I don't wanna be in a relationship." I scoffed.
"Really? Stop being naive Elena. Stop it!" Nina raised his hand.
"Okay. Suit yourself." Just as I was about to move away, another knock from the door came .
"I will go get that!" Nina volunteer.
I heard her scream. I quickly rushed to where she is and saw her on the floor.
"What happened to you?" I asked, glancing here and there outside the house.
The person must have gone.
"Grandma is died!" She announced.
"Oh my God! Am sorry. You need to take it easy."
"She's all I have you know that. She is." She cried.
"I know. But you don't have to kill yourself. We will be going there tomorrow. Am sorry once again." I patted her and hugged her.
Her grandma had been the one taking care of her till she got to this stage but now, she died.
While I, I don't have parents. Not at all. Ever my grandparents too are dead.
I groaned at the door again when I heard a knock but froze when I heard the King's voice.
I swiftly turned to Nina and told her, "Tell the king and not around." I whispered and ran to my room and closed the door.
King Arthur's pov
The guard knocked on the door the fifth time and it got opened.
"Nina? Where's Elena?" I asked, peeping.
"She's not at home now. She went on a date with someone. She's not around right now" She answered.
I tilted my head and saw her gulped. I knew she's lying.
I pushed her away and entered. I looked around with my hands crossed behind my back and looked around.
I climbed the stairs and opened a door and entered the room.
I searched the room and saw that she isn't there, I went out. I went to another door and tried to opened it but it was locked.
"Elena, I know you're there. Come out." I yelled.
I don't know why I keep following her everywhere she goes. Am attracted to her. I think i am.
"Elena, Am sorry for what I did earlier. Am sorry. The truth is I don't want anyone to touch what's mine. I hate it!" I muttered some curses.
Am not guilty for what I did. He'd deserved it.
And am not sorry.
"Your apology isn't enough!" I heard her tiny voice from inside.
She opened the door slowly and I entered before she could open it wide. I grabbed her arm and pinned her to the wall.
"Why are you avoiding me?"
"Cause you're a devil." She spat.
I kissed her and told her, " You don't say that to my face again. I know am a devil but you don't have to say that to me!" I half yelled.
Her lips began shivering and they were almost turning me on.
I kissed them again and made her legs wrap me. Those crazy and stupid feeling I do feel has come again.
I traced my hand on her laps then her breast.
I groaned when my back was hit with a bullet. I stopped the kiss and dropped Elena down.
My face was on her shoulder and she gasped seeing blood.
"My king!" She shrieked and I managed to pull her out of the room.
She's not safe anymore.
