August’s P.O.VI was in a dark room, nothing could be seen except for the darkness around me. There was not any single light! I tried to stand up with the help of my wounded legs, but failed miserably. I tried to hold back my tears, thinking about what they did to me. My own parents beat me to death and then locked me the dark basement. I was there for almost two hours. They didn’t check on me yet. They didn’t even give me food...
Few more moments passed...and then the door opened, revealing my father standing there with a belt in his hand. My eyes were wide in horror and I looked at him with pleading eyes.
“You fucking whore!” he yelled. I backed away only to found a wall behind me.
“Please dad.” I cried out when he came close and whipped me with his belt.
“Shut up bitch.” he growled and whipped me again. This time I let out a loud scream. The pain was unbearable.
He kept hitting me until I started to bleed. I was whimpering lowly every time he would hit me. Why? Why is he doing this to me? I was his daughter, wasn’t I? Does it really matter that am adopted?
“Pl-please dad n-not anymore.” I whispered before falling to the ground. I was on the urge of losing my consciousness, because I really did not want to witness what else was going to happen.
He yanked me up by my hair making me hiss in pain and him smacking me again on my face. I broke a rule...I could never ever hiss or make any sound that would show that I was in pain.
“Get up you worthless bitch, you deserve nothing but pain.” with that he slammed my head on the wooden wall. I started to see black dots and my vision were blurry. I could not see anything. Was I finally dying? I heard my dad muttered something but before I could figure that out, my vision was covered with the darkness.
It was almost morning, but there were no sign of her awakening. The doctor said that she would take time to wake up. She was still in my bed and after last night incident, dad came to me twice to discuss the matter but every time I told him to leave. Because I was not interested to talk about that. All I cared about was...I just wanted her to be okay.
“Lucifer.” I heard someone called my name, knocking on my door. “Come in.” I growled at whoever the fuck it was. The door opened, revealing none other than my sister with a pissed off look.
“What do you want?” I asked, annoyed. She rolled her eyes at me.
“Do you even know what the fuck you have done?”
“What?” I asked in a bored tone.
“You brought a fricking maid on your room and not to forget in front of everyone, the fucking guest and the fucking medias. It’s all over the news and social media.” she whined. I gave her a bored look.
“So? Do you think I fucking care what the fuckers talk about me?” I snapped.
“What the fuck you are saying Lucifer, she is just a filthy maid, she can’t be even compared with any of us and after you did, all of the people are thinking something is fishy.” she half yelled at me.
My eyes were red with anger, her words were ringing on my head filthy. I took long strides towards her and grabbed her arm pushing her outside of my room.
“Get out of here NOW.” I growled at her. She gulped and nodded her head before leaving the room. I sighed in frustration.
Walking towards my bathroom, I got in and did my business in there. After 15 minutes I got out wrapping a towel around myself. She was still in my bed sleeping peacefully and looking beautiful as fuck.
I was searching for some clothes in my closet when I heard someone moan and then gasped. I turned around and saw her sitting on my bed with her big eyes. She instantly covered her eyes with her hand. I smirked at her cute reaction and walked towards her.
“Open your eyes.” I commanded. She was hesitate at first but then removed her hands and opened her eyes but still looking down. It made me angry and I gripped her chin and raised it up a bit so that I could see her beautiful eyes. My breath hitched as I stared at her divine like face. But her eyes held fear and dejection.
“Always look into my eyes when I’m talking to you, got it?” I asked in a husky voice. She nodded her head that made me more furious. Why the fuck she is not talking?
“Words.” I demanded.
“O-okay.” she whispered. Fuck. Her words were like a song to my ears. I had the urge to kiss her but I managed to control myself and let go of her chin.
I slipped on my clothes and wore my shoes. She was still looking down,not even sparing a glance at me. I approached her again and sat down on the bed beside her. She moved a little but stopped when I glared at her.
“C-can I go n-now m-master?” She spoke breaking the silence. I could see red by now, why she wanted to fucking leave?
“Why you want to leave?” I asked in my deep voice, enough to make her shiver.
“I-I jus-” I stopped her.
“First have your breakfast.” I said and called for Martha.
She hastily came in my room with her head down. “Yes master?”
“Give her some breakfast and don’t let her do all the chores of the house, the other maids will do this.” I said in my deep tone. She nodded her head and went out of my room.
I turned around to face August. “You may take a shower and as I said you don’t have to do all the works.” I wore my watch and glance at her.
“Y-yes sir.” she replied and nod her head.
She stood up from the bed, still on her last night’s dress. Her hair was messy and her upper buttons of the night gown was slightly lose and would pop out anytime, but still it was showing much of her skin. She brought her hands to her chest to cover it. A low chuckle escaped from my mouth.
That made me so fucking hard. Her innocence, her curve was on display. I clenched my teeth and walked towards her. She gasped, her eyes were wide, seeing me coming to her.
I stopped when I was enough close to her. I was examining her beautiful face, her shiny brown hair and her pink plumpy lips. I caressed her hair and placed few strands of her hair behind her ears. She was shivering in fear. It made me smirk, I liked the effect I had on her. It made me feel more powerful, that I already was.
She tried to step back, but I immediately caught her by her waist and pulled her closer to me. She gasped loudly this time, her eyes were becoming teary and she tried to squirm under my grip, only making me tightening it more.
“Stop struggling.” I growled. She whimpered and stopped.
I brought myself close to her neck and inhaled her smell. She was struggling again but I didn’t let her go. Her smell was so fucking intoxicating. She started to hit my chest with her small fist, trying to get away from me. But I wasn’t going to let that happen.
“Pl-please le-let me go.” She cried. Why the hell is she crying?
“Sshhh don’t cry princess.” I said and caressed her hair. Her silky smooth hair melted in my hands, her brown blocks looked so perfect on the creases of my finger. She whimpered more.
I started to place soft kisses on her neck making her shiver. Fuck. This was making me more hard. At that moment, I was thinking about nothing but her. I heard her soft sobs.
Clenching my teeth I let go of her. She stumbled back. What the fuck was I doing? What the heck was happening to me? I pinched the bridge of my nose and closed my eyes. When I opened them I saw her still standing with her head down.
“Get out.” I said. “NOW.”
She quickly walked out of my room with her tear stained face.
What the fuck was I doing? How can I be attracted towards her? How....how can I feel something for her?
Feelings were not for a person like me.
I ran out of the room as fast as possible. He was crazy! He was definitely insane. How could he just touch me like this and yelled at me to get out? It was his mistake not mine.
I get in my room and quickly changed my clothes. I was wearing a different dress, it was a night gown, I gulped thinking if he changed my dress....I really hope he didn’t. I changed the clothes into my regular maid clothes and brushed my hair, I tied my hair and was about to walk out of the room when I saw Martha came with a tray in her hands. I frowned when I saw she brought breakfast for me.
“Why did you bring this Martha? I could go down to have it with the other girls.” I said. She smiled at me.
“No dear, master has told me to bring it to you and let you rest for the day.” she said and placed the tray in the bed.
“But it was not needed, I-I’m feeling alright now.” I replied. I really did not want to stay in the room all day.
“Master will get angry if we don’t listen to her sweetie. Now come and have your breakfast.” I nod my head at her and sat beside her. I have to admit I was hungry and the smell of fresh juice, scrambled and toast was making me more hungry.
I slowly pick up the toast and take a bite. My mind was still on the incident that happened few moments ago. Why did he behave like this? Why did he touched me? I was so lost in my thoughts I didn’t even heard Martha calling my name.
“What happened August? You were lost.” She said with a chuckle. I looked down and blushed.
“N-nothing. What were you saying?”
“Oh yeah, actually I was going to ask about last night.” I stopped what I was doing and stared at her. Both fear and sadness could be seen in my eyes by anyone.
“I’m really sorry my dear, you don’t have to say anything if you don’t feel comfortable.” She quickly said.
“N-no I-I am fine. W-what do you wanna know?”
“I’m not going to ask what that guy did to you, I just want to know what happened after that.” I stared at her in confusion. Exactly what she wanted to know?
“What do you mean, Martha?”
She sighed. “I’m sorry sweetie I did not mean to confuse you, but people are gossiping and very soon it will be on news.” I frowned at her.
“About what they are gossiping?” I asked.
“About you and Master.” My eyes widen in shock.
“Wh-what about m-me?” I stuttered.
“You do remember that he saved you from that guy?” I nodded my head.
“Yes and then? Do you remember anything else?”
“I-I just fainted and remember being carried out. Then I woke up at master’s room, that’s all I remember.” I whispered.
After few seconds of silence she spoke.
“He carried you to his room in front of everyone. Everyone saw it, they are talking about it. Master never did this to anyone, especially a maid, he doesn’t even look at any of the maids here, he just don’t care. But, last night he saved you, he carried you to his room, gave you proper treatment, called a doctor for you. It’s really strange. Mr. Knight was really angry and other family members are still pissed off.” I was shock. I couldn’t understand what was happening.
“I...I don’t understand Martha, why he d-did this, I-I have no idea.” I said to her which barely could be heard.
“I know my dear, it’s not your fault. Don’t think too much about it everything will be okay. Now you should rest, I will have Marie to do your chores.” I nodded my head in response. She smiled and walked out of the room.
“But, I will still warn you August, please stay away from him. He is not someone whom you can freely roam around, he’s dangerous. Please stay away from him my child.” She said but before she could walk out I stopped her.
“Martha wait! Can you tell me who changed my clothes last night?” I asked her, hoping it was not him.
She gave me an assuring smile. “Don’t worry my dear, I and other maids changed your clothes.” She stated and left.
I sighed heavily. I didn’t understand why she warned me to stay away from him. This was all so confusing. But whatever the reason was I knew it was better for me to listen to her.
After finishing my food, I picked up the tray and started to walk downstairs. Last night’s incident was still haunting me. I shivered every time I thought about it. It was very kind of master saving me from that guy, but I was still afraid of him. I didn’t know why but after what happened few moments ago I was definitely scared of him.
I slowly took one step and another, carrying the tray. I had to be careful or else I might end up falling and breaking the plates and glass. When I was successfully reached downstairs, I sighed in relief and made my way towards the kitchen. I was walking, suddenly a figure came in front of me stopping me in my tracks. I stopped walking, my eyes were down as I felt the familiar aura around me. I gasped and realized who it was. I gulped and slowly looked up, his grey armani suit was in my view and then I was met with his dark eyes. He was looking at me not even blinking, his intense stare was making invisible holes in my body. I instantly looked down, my eyes were back on my shoes.
I recalled what happened when I was in his room. I was shaking in fear and stepped back a little. I heard him clenched his teeth.
“Don’t walk away from me.” I heard his husky voice that gave me shivers.
I didn’t say anything and just kept looking down. I wanted to get out of there.
“Why are you here? Didn’t I tell you to rest for the day?” His tone was deep now.
“I-I’m really s-sorry master I j-just came to k-keep the tray i-in the kitchen.” I stuttered. I was sure he felt my fear and was smirking in satisfaction.
“How are you feeling now?” He asked.
“G-good master.” I whispered. He just nodded his head.“Go now.” He commanded. I nodded my head and uttered a yes before leaving. I wanted to go away from here, I was aware of what Martha said. I decided to try my best to stay away from him.
