Chapter nineteen - The end?

*Kiara's POV*

A few hours ago, I'd left Calvin to speak with Daphne and I went off to plan the make up gift I'd promised him. I didn't know what I was going to do and I literally freaked out. But after a while, I made up my mind and was pretty impressed with myself.

I left his room and made my way into the kitchen. There, I asked the chef to help me prepare the same foods he'd prepared for I and Calvin's first picnic. It was where we'd first gotten to know each other. We'd laughed, we'd had heartfelt conversations we'd even played a game of "hot and cold"

After about half an hour, the chef was done with it and I helped him pack everything into the basket. I took the basket to our initial spot and was off to find him. I decided to add a little effect so I decided to blindfold him on the way there. I ran back to his room and picked up one of his clean handkerchiefs and began to look for him. I asked around and they said they saw him in the infirmary last.

I walked through the halls quietly and very soon I was there but what I saw shattered my heart completely. Just a few inches away from me, Calvin and a girl I'd never met (Daphne) were kissing. He looked up at me and that was when I really felt the impact of the walls of my life crashing around me.

I turned around and took my leave without a single word. Fuck him, fuck her, fuck Kenneth, fuck it all. He was officially no longer my mate.

“Kiara, wait!” he called out to me.

“Kiara!” he called again. “Kiara...babe?”

That word completely angered me and I was sure I'd had it.

“Don't you dare, don't you dare babe me. You lied to me. You said you'd reject her but I'm just so stupid that I actually fell for that”


“'s fine. I don't blame you for anything. I blame myself. I blame myself for not using my brains. I blame myself for not realising sooner than later that this was all too good to be true.”

“Kiara, she kissed me. I would never do something like that to you. Never. I don't even like her.”

“Ohh, so you'd have kissed her if you like her. You're pathetic.”

“And you're being unreasonable!”

“I’m being unreasonable? I’m being unreasonable!? What the fuck are you saying Calvin?”

“Kiara, I didn’t mean that. I’m sorry”

“You’re sorry. That’s it. You think you can just say you’re sorry and all this shit will go away. Right?”

I stormed off leaving in him in the hallway on my way to do the last thing I’d ever expected myself to do.

“Kia, Kia, wait.”

“Don’t. Call. Me. Back”

I left the hallway, walking out of the mansion and into the only private spot in the building. I walked to the garden and into the centre where I took off my shoes and sat on the floor. I began to cry. I looked around and saw the picnic basket I’d prepared for him. That just made me more depressed. I cried and cried until I felt so faint I couldn’t cry again and then, I closed my eyes and slept.


I found myself in the same place I’d come out from only about four hours ago. This wasn’t my first time, so I just called out for my mother.


“I’m right here”

Once again, she turned up out of the blue or out of the white since, everywhere was white. You know what? Never mind.

“You brought me here right?” I asked her.

“Yes, I did.”

“But why?”

“Because you're being unreasonable. Don’t let your anger and depression get in the way of your good judgement.”

“How can you even...Why is everyone saying that today?” I seethed. She was my mother but I didn’t appreciate her saying I was being unreasonable.

“Kiara, darling, I love you and you have to listen to me. These people don’t even realise they're in danger. Please don’t let them be subjects to evil any more. Please”

“Calvin cheated on me”

“He did not. That girl kissed him and he broke away immediately.”

“Really? And how do you know?” I asked.

“I know because I am a spirit and we spirits see all.Now, I think it’s time for you to go. Your mate has been searching for hours.”

“Wait, what do you mean hours? I’ve only been here a few minutes.”

“Time passes differently in the ethereal realm. Your time here is up. For now, anyway. Goodbye, my love.”

“Goodbye mother” I said.

Once again, I woke up but this time, the sky was dark and I was still in the garden. I stood up carefully this time so as not to repeat my previous mistake of hurrying to get up. I looked around and luckily for me, the lights of the garden were all switched on and I easily found my way out of the centre, into the mansion and into my mate’s room. I met him on the way into the house and he looked like someone on the verge of madness.

“Where have you been!? I’ve been searching all over for you. Kiara, I've been looking.”

He spoke to me with tears in his eyes and I immediately felt sorry for him but even after all mother said, I was still a proud woman. I gave him the coldest reply that I was sure would be a slap in the face to him.

“I’ve been away. Away from you and where I went is none of your business. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to bed.”

He looked at me with wide eyes. He was obviously in shock. I just hoped my words didn't cut him too deep but unfortunately, I knew they would.

I walked away from him unable to bear the look in his eyes. One more glance and I would break down and cry all over his clothes but I wasn't going to do that. I couldn’t. I continued walking down the hallway without another word.

“Not even a 'goodnight'?” he asked.

I couldn't take it anymore I just had to leave. I’d wanted to give him another dose of my cold replies but at this point, I was done. If any other word came out of my mouth, a stream of tears would follow. I ran as fast as my legs could carry me into his room and then shut the door.
