It has been a a long night. I ended up sleeping on the couch not willing to be in the same bed as him. He seemed to not care as he was asleep in minutes. I stayed awake for a long time staring at the ceiling thinking about the scars on his back and what he had said. What had happened to cause them. I also felt a bit bad for what I had said to him but I pushed that feeling down unwilling to think about it.

After hours of restlessness I finally fell asleep in the early morning hours. When I awoke the room was empty. I got up stretching out and looked over at the clock it was almost twelve. I sighed and marched over to the bathroom to do my business.

When I came out I looked for my clothes from yesterday to put on. I had borrowed a shirt and shorts from him. They were large on me but they would work for now.

I made my way over to the door. I opened it slowly and looked around. And my hulking body guard was in the same place as yesterday. Malik looked as if he hadn't moved at all.

He turned to look at me looking me up and down and huffed. Turning back to stare at nothing. Just as I was about to go back into the room he spoke.

"Someone will be bringing you some clothes to wear."

And with that I closed the door behind me and went to sit on the couch. A few minutes later there was a knock on the door.

"Come in"

The door swung open and a young girl walked in carrying two bags with her. She kept her head down and she walked over and set the bags down on the bed. I stood walking over to the bed.

"Thank you."

She only nodded at me and turned to leave. Not looking up at me once.

"Are you alright?"

"Yes miss."

And with that she stepped out of the room closing the door softly behind her.

Everyone around here is so strange I thought to myself as I opened the first bag. Inside were some pants and shoes. I looked into the other and found some tops and hair products as well as some other things.

I pulled everything out of the bags and spread it out over the bed. I decided that I would shower first so I took the shampoo and conditioner and made my way into the bathroom.

After a quick shower I wrapped my hair in a towel and dried of. I walked back into geh main room and looked through the clothes. I decided on a pair of leggings and a sweater. I slipped them on and then slipped on a pair of boots. They were a bit big but they would work.

I walked over to the door and opened it turning to Malik.

"Can you please take me to get some food?" I asked him.

He grunted and guided me down the stairs to the main floor. We walked down a few hallways and then into a large kitchen. There was a plump lady standing in the back chopping up vegetables. She looked up at us as we walked in. She was an older women with round cheeks and wrinkled. But I could see kindness in her eyes as she looked at me.

"Food." Malik grumbled to her.

"What would you like dear?"

"You don't have to make me anything I can just have a apple or a bowl of cereal. "

"Nonsense I can cook you up something. Just go take a seat in the dining room and I will bring you out something when it's done."

I smiled and nodded at her accepting her offer. My stomach growled at the idea of food. I turned bad followed Malik into the dining room it was completely empty except for us. I took a seat and the table and Malik stood against the wall. I turned to look at him glaring at his hulking figure.

"Aren't you going to sit?"

He just ignored me not even looking at me. I seethed at his rudeness. My patience running low.

"If your going to be stuck with me you could at least talk to me."

He finally looked down at me studying my face.

"Your hair is a mess." He stated.

My hand instinctively rose to my hair to feel over any messy parts. I looked back at him glaring. Just as I was about to share my true feelings the cook pushed through the door her arms full.

She came over to where I was sitting and with a smile she set the treys of food down on the table. She lifted the lid to reveal eggs, pancakes, and steaming sausage. With a bowl of thick syrup and jams. My stomach growled at the delicious sight before me.

"Enjoy dear."

"Thank you this looks amazing"

With a smile she left walking back into the kitchen. I quickly dug into the food stuffing my face.

"After your done the King has requested you come to his office."

I turned to look at Malik my face turned up in a scowl. He really did know how to ruin a good meal.
