You can’t keep me caged, Romero. I am free.

The words rang in my ears again in darkness followed by a manly scream. The scream made my body jerk. It wasn’t ear piercing or traumatizing but laced with fear and longing. A scream enveloped in covers of darkness echoing from far. A scream begging Gods of heaven for mercy.
A lover calling his love to come back.
An intense pain shot in my skull as I tried to concentrate on those last words to jump out of this dark abyss.

Beep. Beep. Beep.

What is that?
A shaky breath escaped my mouth as I tried to move. But as if a mountain was resting over my body, I didn’t even twitch. My limbs felt jammed and stiff. Another wave of pain shot above my eye brows making me wince. I tried to open my eyes earning failure, as if they were glued to budge.

Beep. Beep. Beep.

The same annoying sound reached my ears and I tilted my head little. I can hear my heart beats clearly now as well as every ragged breath leaving my chest. A bitter taste touched my dry tongue. My parched throat constricted under the feeling of piercing needles. Water. I need water. Mustering whatever power my numb body had, I opened my eyes only to be blinded by magnificent white light. Immediately the eyes fluttered close and the throbbing pain increased.

Beep. Beep. Beep.

That annoying sound increased all of a sudden making me jolt up from bed breathing hard with eyes opened wide. Bile rose my chest as I looked around in bewilderment. My shaky hand reached for the oxygen mask cupping my mouth. Removing it, I took large drags of air. The room was quite big with grey walls and white ceiling. A medium sized chandelier was lighted at the middle. A giant dressing table was resting at the corner and a mega sized LED covered the wall in front of bed. I was lying on a King-sized bed with various machines and medical equipment surrounding me. Many needles were piercing my pale and bony arms. Slowly, I removed them and tried to scurry away feeling sick and weak. My hands clutched the white cotton gown covering my body as I kept my feet on soft carpet. Rubbing the eyes slowly to get rid of blurry vision, I tried to stand by leaving the pressure on wobbly legs. They shook hard refusing to support my weight making me collapse. Thanks to carpet, my body didn’t gain any serious damage.
Crawling like a toddler, I held the bed and tried to stand again earning success this time. My body was still weak and shaking badly. It took all power to keep the feet on cold floor without losing balance. Dark dots started appearing my vision and I blinked the eyes several times. Slowly, dragging my sleepy body to large doors, I clutched the metallic golden knob and twisted it. With a click, doors opened leading me out. Crimson jute carpet clashed with my pale legs as I stumbled forward and looked around. My breath hitched staring at surroundings that matched some castle. Every corner was glowing.

Suddenly a loud clatter echoed in silent hallways making me jump in shock. My head whipped in the direction of noise and I lost my balance in hurry, falling on my butt. A short woman wearing black frock under white apron stared at me wide eyed. Her mouth was open ajar. The contents of tray were splattered all around the carpet ruining it. I gulped feeling dizzy. Then she screamed bloody murder backing away in a pillar. I winced at her shrill voice. The door in front of which I fell, just beside the room I laid earlier, opened with a loud thud.

Three men in elegant suites, looking angry as ever stepped out to access the situation of shaking woman, but they froze when their eyes landed on me. Sharp intake of breathes was heard before a navy blue clothed man stepped out looking shocked. I ogled at his angelic features openly as his dark eyes met mine. He kneeled in front of me and cupped my face in worry with his warm palms. Something dark flashed within him as he looked at the other man and yelled.

“Call the doctor, now.”

I frowned listening his voice and connected it with the haunting scream of my dream. They were same. Within no time, he scooped me up in his arms bridal style, like I weigh nothing and marched towards the same room from where I escaped.

“Crystal, baby. Are you okay? Talk to me.” He mumbled laying me on bed gently as darkness started consuming my mind once again. His words faded with surroundings as I closed my eyes thinking,

‘Who is Crystal?’

aanniemaazziinnggzz: I love the story itself. I love how Sophie moved on, love herself more and never going back to the person who hurt her so much. She learned enough! I also love how Andrew love Sophie! Hey, he wait for so long! I love it sooooo mucccchh!

renpaige01: I’ve read a lot of erotica, but this story takes a slightly generic plot and twists it into something so unique. For me erotica needs a background story or it’s no different than a cheap porn production, and this has a GREAT story. I hope more people see and choose to read this story full of sex ...

Fudge_and_Chocolate: My fair assassin had me gripped from the moment I started reading. It is one of the best books I’ve ever read, including unpublished and published books.
