Lucian

 

 

When she went to bed I couldn’t get her off my head so I went into her room and laid down close to her watching her sleep.

 

My heart kept beating just thinking about the kiss we shared.

 

I couldn’t hold myself from kissing her when she was so close to me.

 

 

I had no idea what came over me at that moment but I don’t regret it cause it made me feel so loved and secure.

 

I’ve never felt that way before and I love the feeling.

 

She moved and her hair fell on her face,

 

I brought my hand and gently tucked it behind her ear.

 

I kissed her forehead and closed my eyes perceiving her sweet scent.

 

Hot breeze started blowing and I pulled away from Rose quickly.

 

I turned and it was Father, I kneeled down in a bow.

 

 

 

* Father *

 

called.

 

Lucian!! *

 

He called and my head bowed lower

 

* What are you waiting for? I’m running out of patience * He spoke. I kept mute cause I didn’t know what to say * Kill her in the next 24hours and bring me her blood *

 

I raised my head in shock and my eyes almost popping out of the sockets. 24hours?

 

* Father that’s too little a time *

 

I replied

 

 

* You’ve fallen in love with her *

 

* What? No Father *

 

I said unsure of my words.

 

* Prove it and do it in the next 24hours *

 

He spoke and vanished slowly. I got up and looked at her.

 

Have I fallen in love with you? How? When?

 

Rose will I be able to sacrifice my dreams for you?

 

I don’t know what to do anymore,

 

I can’t hurt even a strand of your hair and that might ruin me.

 

I held her hand and caressed it,

 

I bent and placed my lips on her hand.

 

I was in the kitchen preparing breakfast quickly before she wakes up cause it was late already.

 

I flipped the pancakes in the pan and served them.

 

I made her coffee and placed everything on the dinning table.

 

* Good morning Lucian *

 

I turned to the beautiful face and smile. I smiled * Come have breakfast * I said to her.

 

 

She sat and I sat opposite her,

 

she kept smiling and staring me.

 

Imagine cutting this beautiful smile and loving heart shut, no! I can’t do it. * Eat *

 

I told her, she giggled.

 

She’s all bubbly this days.

 

I ate slowly just watching her,

 

I thought about different things and what I was going to lose if I decide to choose her.

 

I saw her off and halted a cab to take her to work.

 

I stood and watched till she was out of my sight.

 

I sighed heavily and turned to take a walk in the city.

 

I worked hours and stopped by a cafe,

 

I got in and took coffee.

 

I looked at a couple outside close to the flower vender.

 

The man bought her flowers and she was happy.

 

I walked across the street and took the prettiest flower I saw.

 

It smelled really nice.

 

 

I walked past a playground and stopped, sat on the bench and watched children play around with their parents.

 

* Pretty *

 

I turned and it was a cute little boy touching the flowers I was holding. He looked up at me and I smiled

 

Is she pretty too?* He asked.

 

What? *

 

The lady you bought this for, is she as pretty as the flower? * He asked with his tiny voice, I chuckled

 

She’s more pretty *

 

 

 

 

 

You must like her alot. I want to have a girlfriend too but Dad says I’m too small

 

*

 

He said and frowned his cute face, I smiled and touched his hair.

 

* Yes, you should grow up first *

 

I told him

 

when I grow I’m going to have a girlfriend and she will be the most beautiful girl in the world *

 

He giggled and ran off.

 

I smiled, he just made me forget my problems for a little while.

 

Indeed kids bring much joy.

 

I looked at the flowers and smiled.

 

It was getting late and Rose will finish up soon.

 

I got up and took a cab to the restaurant.

 

I smiled when I saw her smiling and talking to her friend outside the restaurant.

 

After a while she waved Jane bye and looked around probably looking for me,

 

I smiled at her sad she looked waiting for me.

 

I walked out and her lips curved in a very beautiful smile.

 

* I got you this *

 

I said and gave her the flowers.

 

* Thanks *

 

She blushed shyly, I smiled.

 

 

 

It was late and Rose had gone to bed already and as usual I watched her sleep.

 

Sometimes I wonder if I get any sleep at all, I just enjoy looking at her.

 

* KILL HER! KILL HER! KILL HER *

 

It echoed closely. I bowed

 

* Father *

 

I said

 

* Lucian what’s wrong with you? How dare you defy my orders * Father spoke

 

* I’m sorry Father but… *

 

But what Lucian? Speak up!!* He yelled the last part.

 

* I can’t do it Father, I can’t kill her. I don’t want anything to hurt her. I’m sorry * I said boldly.

 

Father flamed up and the air become too hot.

 

I looked at Rose and quickly covered her with the duvet.

 

* You’ve fallen in love with a mundane, that’s a even greater sin * He said and vanished in flames.

 

I looked at Rose and removed the blanket, I touched her forehead and it was hot.

 

I turned on the air conditioner.

 

What do I do now?
