Chapter 17

Annora Pov

I’m kind of happy to be back. I love it here I thought while looking out the window at the farm land and beautiful scenery. We’re almost to the estate. I just want to eat and sleep.

When we pull up it looks like a war zone. Guards are everywhere. Bodies are laying in the field. I turn away from the gruesome sight. The car stops at the gate then lets us out then drive on through.

Gideon walks toward us looking pissed. Marius lay on him in rapid Romanian. I tap his shoulder. “Can you please speak English so I can know what’s going on.”

He turns to me and then back at Gideon. “What happened? I leave for 2 days and everything goes to shit.”

“Some guy slit the guard at the gate throat then let himself in. Then he killed two more guards with throwing knives. Romero was shot up so bad that I’m thinking he was interrogated. He ducked off into the woods then hitch over the cliff.”

Marius looked over at me. “Did you tell someone about the cliff?”

“No,” I say. But I remember the story I told Coulder. But he wouldn’t come here would he?

Marius read it on my face. He started to advance on me. “You become friends with a fucking ninja while you were away.” He held up his phone with footage on it.

Someone is dressed in black slit one guard throat. He took down two more guards with throwing knives that he used with precision. The guy definitely has Coulder build.

I try to clear emotions from my face and eyes. Who the fuck is Coulder.

Annora Pov

I’m snapped from my thoughts by a slap to my face.

“Who the fuck is he.” I’ve never seen Marius look so deadly. His eyes are blazed up.

I held my cheek. ” I don’t know who that is.”

“You will tell me where the fuck you were for that month and a half or I will beat it out of you.”

“Marius, I don’t know who that is. I stayed with a friend when I left.”

“You don’t have no fucking friends. Stop lying to me. Take her to my room and lock the door.”

“Marius, I don’t know who that is damn it.”

“Get the fuck out of my face. You’re putting my entire operation at risk with your foolishness and secrets, and you better have kept your legs closed or you’re fucking dead.”

I guess he forgot all about his baby. I sniff and walk away. Fuck Marius. I can’t believe I was letting myself fall for him. I was escorted to his room. I waited for him all night but he never came. Then I started getting nervous and scared for Coulder.

I know he told me he goes crazy when he start falling for someone but I didn’t know he’d go this far and do something this stupid. What did he think was going to happen? He was going to break in and rescue me.

Then I feel all mushy, falling for him more for the sentiment. Even though he seems pretty capable he can’t take on the entire mafia. Just who the hell is Coulder. I thought he was only a security guard. Apparently I was wrong. He’s a fucking security ninja.

I hear the lock turn then the door opens. I turn to see who it is. It’s Ida with a guard. She has brought food. She sits the food on the dresser. I don’t do or say anything. I just continue to look at the sky from the window.

Ida says, “please eat Ann. You need to keep your strength up.”

I still do nothing. I’m too nervous to eat.

“Please Ann.”

I turn from the window and walk over to the toast and yogurt and start eating.

“Thank you. Annora are you upset with me,” Ida asks.

“Of course not Ida, I’m just too nervous to eat and I don’t feel like talking.”

She nods, smiles then leaves.

I didn’t see him for days. I wish he would come and beat my ass and get it over with. On the 3rd night he came and I was asleep. I felt the bed dip.

He says,” your boyfriend is very tactical and crafty.”

“Marius,” that’s all I get out before he starts choking me.

I kick and punch him. I get my feet under his chest and shove him backwards and off me. I pick up the lamp on the bedside table and throw it at him.

“Get the fuck away from me Marius. You’re a delusional psycho.” I know I cheated and he has a right to his anger, but I’m not 100% caught yet and I’m going to lie until the wheels fall off.

He says, “I’m going to kill you and leave your body outside the gates for him to find,” he said and pulled out his gun.

“Marius what are you doing? I’m pregnant with your baby you lunatic,” I sob out.

He gives me a look that says he didn’t think this through.

“I’m too tired to deal with you right now. I’m going to bed,” he said and sat his gun on the night stand, got undressed and got in bed.

I fall back into bed and stare at the ceiling for a few minutes before I fall back asleep.

I wake up to a click and hear someone say, “put it down.”

I turn to see someone dressed in all black with a gun to Marius’ head. Marius pulled his hand back from his gun on the dresser.

The assailant pulled some cuffs from his pocket and handcuffed Marius to the bed. Marius says, “you better kill me now motherfucker because I’m coming for your ass.”

The assailant snort and says,” you incompetent motherfuckers can’t find shit. You need to fire everybody and start a rehire.”

“What the fuck you want,” ask Marius.

“I came for Annora.”

“What,” I sit up. Done pretending I’m not listening.

The assailant says,” I come for you.”

Shit I know exactly who this is. He’s disguising his voice but I know.

“Annora you got your boyfriend coming into my house and disrespecting me. I’m going to kill both of you.”

Marius was cut off from whatever he was saying next because Coulder knocked him out with the butt of his gun.

“Are you fucking crazy. They are going to fucking kill you.”

“Let’s go,” he says.

“No, I can’t be on the run.”

He ignored me and grabbed my arm, dragging me away.

“Stop it.”

“Quiet it,” he said and continued to pull me from the house and down the drive. He walked into the guard house and pushed the button for the gate.

Where the hell is everybody I wondered.

A van swoopS in and picks us up. Then I let Coulder have it. ” Have you lost your fucking mind. Marius is going to fucking kill us both.”

He ignored me. “Thanks Ross. That sleeping gas came in handy.”

“No problem B.”

He turns to me.” How are you feeling.”

“Like a dead woman,” I grumbled.

He only grunt.

“Don’t you dare fucking grunt. You have signed both of our death warrants.”

“I didn’t see you putting up much of a fight.”

“Coulder, do you have any idea who Marius is and what he’s going to do to us.”

“I couldn’t bear the thought of what he was doing to you. I told you what would happen if you and I got involved. What did you want me to do Annora. I missed you.”

“Oh Coulder, I missed you too, but I don’t see how this would work.”

He remained silent. 45 minutes later we pull up at Coulder’s house.

“Coulder we can’t be here. They will find us.”

“Annora, this house has no connection to me at all. No one will find us.”

He hops from the van then helps me out.

He turned back to the driver,” thanks Ross.”

“No problem Beck, I’ll see you later.”

When we make it to the house I turn to him and say,” you’re Beck. As in Beck security. You own the fucking company. I thought you were poor and just a security guard. Why do you even live in this 3 bedroom house.”

“This house has sentimental value to me. I do own the company, but it’s only two security firms where we secure for the elite.”

“I can’t believe I didn’t even know your last name. OMG! I’m so stupid and a slut to boot.”

He walks up to me. “I want you to be with me. I know he wasn’t treating you right.”

“Coulder please don’t. I don’t need this right now.”

“Don’t you have feelings for me.”

“Of course I do. I wouldn’t have slept with you if I didn’t. I think about you all the time, but I have feelings for my husband too.”

“No,” he says and pushes me against the wall. He stared down into my face with derange and scary eyes. I curse. Why the fuck are all the men in my life crazy. I’m starting to think it’s me. But Coulder warned me so this is all my fault.

“Coulder stop it. This isn’t helping. We have a whole mafia on our asses, especially yours. I don’t want to see anything happen to you.”

He only grunts.

“Hey,” but I didn’t finish. He laid a hard and angry kiss on me. I wrap my arms around him. Coulder kisses and touches feel so good to me. I feel like I should be in his life, but I also feel the same with Marius.

I’m too confused for this. I break the kiss.

“Coulder I can’t.”

He growls and licks my neck.

“Coulder stop it.”

He didn’t listen. He picks me up and throws me on the couch. He put his hand around my throat and squeezed.

“You’ll be with me,” he said and flipped me over on the couch. He drags me down until I’m on my knees on the floor and my body is bent over the couch. He kneels behind me and rubs my back and licks behind my ear.

I’m going to get up and cuss him out at any moment now I thought to myself as I moan. Oh god his touch does something to me. He takes off my gown then his hands make their way into my panties. He started fingering my clit. I fall back on his chest moaning and breathing fast. He still continues to lick the back of my neck and ears while fingering my pussy.

He pulls my panties down to my knees. He grabbed me by the back of my neck and pushed me into the couch while shoving his dick in me.

Oh my lord.

He only shoves the tip in but it still feels so good. He leans forward and licks my shoulder then bite it hard.

I moan and clench around him. He moans and wheezes out my name. He grabbed my neck with both hands and shoved his dick in hard and pound me into the couch.

I cum screaming his name. The applied pressure on my neck only intensifies my orgasm. I seized up tight then fell forward on the couch cushion. I don’t know what’s going on with Coulder. I guess he came as well. I’m too out of it to care whether he’s satisfied or not.
