She tried to speak but her throat
hurt like hell and she ended up coughing
terribly.Her chest ached.
She moved back from Marco’s arms.
“How are you feeling?”He asked,
“I…”she choked out and coughed.
Marco frozed.”You can’t speak?”
Aurora sniffed and shook her head,
He quickly put a call to the doctor.
“The smoke really affected her
alot, each time she coughs,her chest
would ache, and it affected her voice box
too” The doctor explained.
Marco stared at her, sadly.She was now
sitting up on the bed.
“She’ll be okay again, right?”
“Definitely.As long as she takes the
pills accurately and rest for a few
days,she’ll be fine”Carlos assured.
“Thank you,doc”Marco said,
Carlos nodded and walked away.
Aurora stared at the different
drugs on the table.God!She hated taking
drugs more than anything but now she
had to…if she wanted to speak again.
“I’m so sorry”Marco apologized,
sitting beside her.
Aurora stared at him,he had been
apologizing to her since she woke up.She
wished he would stop staring at her with guilt written all over his eyes.She knew he definitely didn’t want that to happen to her and she wanted him to stop apologizing. “The doctor said you’ll be okay again,so please don’t cry anymore, I’m sorry that had to happen to you. I promise you, I’ll do everything I can to find the person who locked you up”He said. She nodded.
Marco sighed seeing her face
gradually returning to it’s normal state.
A knock sounded on the door.”Come in”
Diego walked in.
“How are you feeling, Aurora?”He
“She can’t speak but she’ll okay very
“I’m sorry you had to go through
that. I can assure you that it won’t happen
again,a new security team has been
employed so you shouldn’t feel scared at
Aurora nodded but she still wasn’t
“Thank you, Diego.I’ll address them
“Alright”With that, Diego walked
Marco stood up from the bed,
Aurora quickly reached for him and held
He turned to face her and could see
fear in her eyes,she was scared of being
“I just wanted to tell Ximena to bring
breakfast up to you”
She shook her head…not wanting him
to leave her side.
Marco sat down again and called
Ximena on the phone instead.
She moved closer to him and held him tightly… resting her head on his chest.
Marco rubbed his hand on her back,he
wished she would be comfortable in his
house like before.
“If only she wasn’t with her cellphone,she’d have stayed longer in the basement and passed on, how could you be so careless?”Camila asked. Diego gulped down a measure of
whiskey.They were in a restaurant.
“I was in a hurry to get her in
there.Do you think it was f**king easy
when his men are always parading his
house?”He asked, angrily.
“I know it isn’t but we don’t have time on our side anymore.Once she takes in,there would be nothing more we can do” Diego’s fist clenched tightly around the glass.
“Failure isn’t in my
dictionary.Marco’s going on a business
trip soon and by the time he gets back,
he’s gonna look for someone else to give
him a child but before then,you have to
come to the house and make her feel
Camila smiled.”Got it”
“You’re a big baby”Marco teased
after he had finally managed to get her to
take her drugs.
She rolled her eyes and lay flat on the
bed.She had enjoyed the chicken soup
Ximena had made for her but each time
she swallowed,her throat hurts.
Her cellphone rang, Aurora’s eyes
widened seeing who was calling.
“Who is it?”Marco asked.
She showed him the screen, it was
“Should I talk to her?”
Aurora quickly shook her head and placed the phone on the bedside table,she would return the calls when she gets better.
“Do you know of anyone who has any
motive of hurting you?Does any of the
workers behave badly towards you?”He
She shook her head.They all act
formal towards her and Ximena was the
nicest of all.
“Did you see the face of your
She shook her head again.
Marco looked away from
her.Nothing has ever happened to his past
women while they came visiting.Did someone know of her purpose of being in his house?Was someone perhaps trying to ruin his chances of having a child to bear
his name?But no one knew about his
illness…not even Aurora.
Well Diego and the doctor knew but
they would never do anything to hurt her.
God! Just who the hell was this
“I would make sure something like
this doesn’t happen again, I’m so sorry”He apologized for the umpteenth time. She moved closer to him and held
his hand, trying to tell him to stop feeling
Marco turned to face her and rubbed
her hair tenderly.
“I know, I’m a bad person, I’ve done alot of mean things to people and to you too,but I really can’t let you go and very soon, you’ll get to know why I’m doing this and I hope then you won’t judge me too harshly.Te necessito(I need you)” The seriousness in his eyes tore at
“For now, you need a good bath to
help you relax properly”He announced.
A frown shaped into her full lips.He
had fed her ignoring her protest because
she wanted to eat by herself… perhaps did he want to bath her himself too?
She moved to the other end of the
bed but he came around helping her
out.She shoved him backwards.
“Even without your voice, you’re still
so stubborn”He exclaimed.
She eyed him.
“Ojos de angel(Angel eyes)”He said,
She made to walk pass him but he
carried her as if she weigh nothing.
Aurora sighed, knowing she couldn’t
fight him….he had warned her not to fall in
love with him but now,he’s starting to
move the goalpost.
After running the bath… making
sure it was warm and foamy,he undressed her and lowered her into it.
Aurora gulped as she watch him take
off his clothes.This was not the time to
get horny but she was horny as f**k just
staring at his manhood.
He got into the bathtub and grabbed
Gently,he washed her body including
After a few minutes,when the
bubbles started disappearing,he turned
her around and made her lay sprawl over
his chest.He recalled how it had felt when he
had no idea where she was.He wasn’t just
agitated because she was someone who
would give him a child,he was agitated
because she had come to mean so much to him…much more than he was willing to admit.
Her breath feather against his neck
and desire shot through him.His member
growing in length but sleeping with her
was the last thing on his mind today.
Right there….in Marco’s arms….she
felt happy and safe…. and loved.
