Unpleasant Morning

I woke up the next morning feeling like crap. I groaned and slipped out of bed, rubbing a warm hand over my face. So much had happened in such little time, it was a miracle I was able to sleep (though with difficulty) after all the hiding and the guns and . . .

"She had a couple of goons with her," I sat on the bed as the realisation hit me. I mean if she was doing something like that behind her fiancée's back, who knows what she would have done to me, if I was seen.

I groaned into a pillow, I wanted to say something, but it just seemed so difficult. If she was still here, I wouldn't have a chance to say anything right away.

"Standing around here won't do any good."

I grabbed some clothes from the closet and quickly got changed, tied my hair into a top bun and made my way to the bathroom. As I got out of the room, I couldn't really hear anything, then again Darius' medicines would make him quite drowsy, which he hated, and so for the most of the day he was asleep.

Though it was early in the morning, so he may have just woken up.

I glanced momentarily at the mirror, man did I look tired. Then again being held up in your boss' office, it does give you nightmares. I brushed a few loose strands away from my face and was about to leave, until I heard shouting. Quietly, I opened the bathroom door and peeked from the side. Darius' door was slightly ajar, but I could hear the noises coming from there.

Trouble in paradise? I thought, quirking a brow.

I shook my head, now was definitely not the right time to make my little announcement, or my presence. I quickly tip toed down the stairs, ignoring her shrieks and Darius' booming voice and made a bee line to the kitchen.

It must have been quite troublesome, having to deal with your business, people trying to kill you aaaand Reina. Seriously, no one should ever have a Reina in their lives, be it male or female, if someone is bothering you and those around you then they need to leave your life.

I shuddered, I still didn't know what he saw in her.

"Fine!" I flinched as the devil herself shouted as she stomped down the stairs, slamming the door as she left. Well guess she isn't joining us for breakfast.

I smiled and turned the stove on, getting breakfast ready.

"Something smells good," Darius spoke from behind as I finished plating the eggs Benedict. My heart clenched at the hoarseness of his voice, making me feel all the more sorry for his naivety.

I bit down on my bottom lip and sauntered over towards him, he sat in his usual place as he waited for his food to arrive.

I glanced up at him and smiled, though it must have come across as quite strange, as he gave me a confused look.

"Everything okay?" I asked sitting down opposite of him, I was going to eat later but now that Reina was gone, I was able to eat in my own comfort.

Darius raked his free hand through his tousled hair and shook his head.


I rolled my eyes and scoffed, "seems to be the main problem of your life." I chuckled softly to myself.

His eyes grew stern as he stared, causing me to freeze under his gaze, "you couldn't have been more right."

I raised my eyebrows in surprise, what did he mean by that? Was it also something to do with the image I found in his office? Maybe Reina found it whilst they were snooping yesterday.

"There's no need to think too much of it, honestly this is what I mean about you women, always calculating about some thing or another." 

I had cut up his meal so it was easier for him to eat with his free hand, though he still insisted on using the one that was broken.
