____________________ day 2b, ( cold hearted)

Bella didn’t come down after she went to the

room that morning after what happened, she

stayed inside knights bedroom and cried all day ,

when she realized Knight wasn’t home she

decided to go take a quick bath and maybe

watch some T.V , after freshing up she wore

another dress because Knight already tore the

first one, she left her long Weaver hair down

reaching her waist , once she opened the door

grace the house help was about to knock she

smiled at Bella who returned it.

” Am sorry ms for disturbing, but sir asked me to

give you this ” grace said handing Bella a nylon

she looked into it and it was a dress.

” What is it for? She asked .

” I don’t know ms but I was asked to give it to

you ” she said and Bella nodded .

” Also ms, you should get down for lunch , sir

won’t be at home early so he asked you eat your

lunch ” grace said.

” Okay , please just call me Isabella or Bella okay

” she told grace .

” Am sorry but I can’t , Mr Houston gave us strict

orders to call you by ur surname or ma’am or ms

, if am caught Calling you your name I will loss

my job ” grace said and Bella frowned.

” I will go now ms, you should come down ” she

said and Bella nodded, grace turned and left .

Bella went back inside and dropped the nylon on

the bed, but why is Knight acting strange,

something doesn’t seem okay about him, his very

handsome and looks good at the outside but

inside lay a cold hearted man , and why would

he instruct his workers to respect her as well

and call her ma’am or ms Kinston? Bella couldn’t

help but wonder .

Bella later went down to eat as she was served

a fried chicken lasagna, and homemade tomato

sauce, the food is so delicious and she couldn’t

help but moan , grace brought her juice and

poured it in the glass for her, Bella wasn’t used

to people serving her.

” Umm grace … please, could you leave it I’d do

it myself” Bella said grace smiled .

“, You don’t need to worry ms, am only doing my

job ” she said and Bella nodded .

But yet her mind wasn’t at rest , why would

Knight tell his workers to treat her with respect?

” Umm, ain’t you hungry you should seat and eat

with me ” Bella said grace smiled again.

” As much as I would love to ma’am I can’t , Mr

Houston will get mad at me “, she said, Bella

couldn’t help but feel so angry at Knight, why is

the man so annoying? And heartless treating

people like slaves , Bella didn’t like it and once

his back she will confront him.

” Ms, Mr Houston had asked me to show you to

the library if you want to have a private time ”

grace said to Bella who smiled .

” That will be very nice , I love reading” Bella

said got up to pick the plates but grace hurried

to do it , Bella felt bad .

” I wanted to do it” Bella said .

“Please ms if you really care and pity me, just let

me do this myself”, grace said and Bella nodded,

she watched as grace left to the kitchen and

later return.

” Please ms this way” she said and Bella

followed her, they reached a door and grace

opened it , they both walked in.

” Wow!! This library is so beautiful” she said

going to touch the books .

Grace smiled .

” Anyone you love you could pick , Mr Houston

won’t mind , but am really surprised he asked us

to bring you here to have privacy, he doesn’t let

anyone in here ” grace said and Bella frowned

going back to her .

“, But why, don’t you love to read ? Bella asked.

” I do, but we know our limits” grace said .

” Umm, when we were coming here there was a

door locked at the side can I take a look ? Bella

asked and grace eyes widen.

“, No, no, no, no ms, Mr Houston doesn’t let any

single soul in that room ,infact he didn’t ask me

to take you there , and besides it’s locked “,

grace said making Bella scared, what could

Knight be hiding from the world , does the room

got Anything to do with his cold heart ? She


“, Can I ask a question? Bella asked.

,” Yes ms” grace replied.

” Does Knight has family? She asked and grace

grew quite.

” Grace please tell me ” Bella begged.

” Am sorry ms, but you shouldn’t ask me that ,

Mr Houston is In the best position to answer that

” grace said .

” But …..okay, never mind am sorry for asking”,

Bella apologize.

Grace didn’t say anything.

Bella read for so many hours and night was

already drawing nearer and nearer, Knight hasn’t

returned yet, so she went to the bedroom got

into her teddy bear night gown and lay on the

Not quite long Knight returned and opened the

bedroom door as he saw Bella sleeping on the

bed, he losses his tie and took off his suit jacket

, pulled his shoe and went into the bathroom

after showering, he came back to the bedroom

wearing short but shirtless, he stare at Bella who

was sleeping soundly on the bed , he went closer

to her and touched her gently on her hair .

Bella felt someone touching her, so she gently

opened her eyes and she came face to face

looking at knights eyes , she quickly sprang up

and moved far away from him.

Knight didn’t understand why she did that , but

he saw the fear in her eyes .

” Ella what’s wrong, why did you move away like

that ? He asked trying not to be upset , Bella

took in a deep breath.

” Am sorry , I didn’t know it was you ” she lied

Knight raised an eyebrow, he knew she was


” Get back to bed “, he said and got up to go out

but Bella stopped him.

” Knight what happened to you ?, Why do you get

angry easily? Bella asked before she could stop

herself, Knight turned to look at her .

” What do you mean by that ? He asked.

” Am not blind, I see how you behave and it’s not

normal, today I asked grace if I could check the

green door room , but ….

” You did what ?? Knight yelled his eyes turned

red, Bella got scared and moved back .

”…mm..umm….but I didn’t she explained”

Bella quickly said as Knights eyes became so

red , she knew he was trying his best to hold his

anger .

But why was he so angry .

” You can go to any other place In this mansion,

but don’t you ever go close to that room do you

get it ? He yelled, and she quickly nodded out of

fear .

Knights eyes soften, he didn’t mean to scare her


” Am sorry , I didn’t mean to scare you is just

that I don’t like anyone around there ” he said .

For the first time since Bella had set her eyes on

knight, she saw sadness in his eyes , right this

moment she couldn’t hate him anymore, it seems

something is wrong somewhere, all she felt for

him now is trying to know why his so cold


Knight moved ontop of the bed , Bella didn’t

move back , he pulled her to him and her heart

beat widely against her chest , Knight only

kissed her and pulled her on the bed and got

onto of her .

But this time around she wasn’t angry at him

that he wants s£x , all that was in her mind was
