Episode 9

 

Author: Pamela.

 

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,

 

concerned.

 

“I…”she choked out and coughed.

 

Marco frozed.”You can’t speak?”

 

Aurora sniffed and shook her head,

 

ruefully.

 

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,

 

gratefully.

 

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

 

asked.

 

“She can’t speak but she’ll okay very

 

soon”Marco replied.

 

“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

 

all”Diego assured.

 

Aurora nodded but she still wasn’t

 

relieved.

 

“Thank you, Diego.I’ll address them

 

later”

 

“Alright”With that, Diego walked

 

away.

 

Marco stood up from the bed,

 

Aurora quickly reached for him and held

 

his hand.

 

He turned to face her and could see

 

fear in her eyes,she was scared of being

 

alone.

 

“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

 

miserable”Diego suggested.

 

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

 

her mother.

 

“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

 

asked, curiously.

 

She shook her head.They all act

 

formal towards her and Ximena was the

 

nicest of all.

 

“Did you see the face of your

 

attacker?”

 

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

 

person?

 

“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

 

guilty.

 

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

 

her.

 

“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,

 

sarcastically.

 

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

 

the washcloth.

 

Gently,he washed her body including

 

her hair.

 

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.

 

What?Loved?

 

Tbc..
