Chapter 46: Tragic

Luna’s POV:

I’m so cold and empty, but from time to time, I would feel someone’s warmth right next to me. It was as if they were trying to fill in this emptiness I had inside. But who was this person lying next to me? Too weak to move, my eyelids felt so heavy that I still couldn’t open them. Maybe it’s okay if I sleep a little bit longer. But as time seemed to pass, I come to realize these sudden painful cramps I was starting to get...wait! Opening my eyes quickly, I grabbed my lower stomach and began to breathe in heavily! Why am I getting cramps? I shouldn’t be getting any, I was already 10 days late for not getting my period. So I shouldn’t be getting abdominal pains if I am pregnant! But as I tried to get up, I realized that I was completely naked underneath the sheets! Quickly grabbing the covers, I held them against my body...

“What? Why am I...where is this? Ren...where are you?”

I trembled out my words with my shaking breath, where’s Ren?! Unable to form any kind of sentence, I frantically looked around the empty room I was in. There was nothing in here but the bed I was on, the clear windows that were behind me and above me were almost suffocating. I’m so confused and unaware of where I was at, the last thing I could remember is being underwater and...

“Eli!”

Calling out his name, I placed my hand on my side temple. I finally remembered who I was with when everything turned pitch black for me! I truly wished that everything that happened yesterday was just a horrible nightmare that I was going through. But at the same time, I’m also relieved to know that Eli is alive and well. However, I know now that he isn’t the person I once knew anymore. I’ll never be able to get that image of what he looked like out of my head...

“His eyes were black...”

I said to myself in a low whisper as I turned my body around, getting a clear image of the outside. The window was very wide and I was able to see the backyard, it was such a wide-open space! But that wasn’t what stood out to me, it was the heavy amount of snow coming down and covering everything like a white sheet that amazed me. I was so infatuated by how beautiful the scenery was that I didn’t notice someone entering the room...

“You’re finally awake.”

“What?!”

I voiced out sounding surprised as I turned my head around, following the girl’s voice, I saw her approach me. Pulling the sheets tightly against my body, I watched carefully as she carried in a plate of food and set it on the very corner of the bed. She had very short blonde hair and her eyes were a gorgeous shade of purple. Her skin was as pale as snow and she was very tall, a lot taller than my father probably!

“Who are you, what am I doing here!? What’s going on!?”

I ask the girl with panic in my voice as I gripped my lower abdomen in discomfort...

“Carla is the name my last King has given me, and I’m here to watch over you and keep you well. So please Luna, lay back down...you need more rest-”

“How do you know my name?! And what king are you talking about!? Just what the hell is going on-”

Cutting my sentence short, I hunched over in agony as the pain got worse! What’s happening to me!? Why am I in so much pain right now?

“My lady, please lay back down or you’ll make your body stress out more. I could take away the pain, only if you listen to me!”

Carla calmly explained as she approached where I was, carefully pushing me back on the bed, I began to shake in total agony! Pulling off the sheets, she placed one of her hands on my lower stomach and I watched her shut her eyes slowly and bring her other hand close to her mouth. I was at a total loss of what she was doing, and I couldn’t push her away with the amount of pain I was going through! My insides felt like they were being stabbed by sharp glass and I didn’t know how much more I could handle this. Biting my tongue, I held back my screams and my eyes were starting to burn with how swollen they were from all the crying I did of yesterday...

I then watched in absolute horror as Carla ripped off one of her fingers with her sharp teeth! Yet she held no expression whatsoever, she didn’t even flinch to the pain nor did she pay attention to how afraid I was! Trying to get away, I failed very quickly since there was no place for me to run! I knew I didn’t have much of a choice other than to stay put, but how can I stay calm after what I’ve been through so far!? My body soon jolted as I felt something warm and wet touching my lower stomach! Looking down in disbelief, I watched Carla mark a symbol on my abdomen with her bloody finger she just bit off!

“What the hell are you doing!?”

I mumbled my words in pain as I tried to hold back the excruciating agony my body was going through! With her eyes still being kept closed, she spoke out some words that I never heard before. And right when she finished speaking, she pulled back her hand and opened her eyes slowly. And once she did that, the horrible pain I was feeling, disappeared! Even the marking she wrote on my abdomen was gone! Running my fingers across my stomach, I was amazed yet scared of what I just witnessed. Quickly getting off the bed, I stood myself up and covered up my breasts with my bare arms. I know Carla already saw me naked but that doesn’t mean I want her to keep looking at me!

“I don’t know what you just did...but thank you. Uhh...where are my clothes?”

I quietly asked as I stood there still shaking. It wasn’t cold, but I wasn’t comfortable with what was going on! I mean, I literally just watched this crazy person ripped their finger off to write something on my stomach! Not only that, but she looks unfazed by it! As if it was the most natural thing to do! The last thing I want to do is get on this person’s bad side! But she did say something about watching over me...

“You don’t have to thank me, I’m just following my King’s orders. I’ve set your new set of clothing right by your side when you were sleeping.”

She raised her hand and pointed at the outfit laying on the bed. Immediately rushing to grab them, I saw that it was just lingerie! What kind of sick joke is this?! This is practically just underwear, how are these clothes?

“Where is the rest of it? I’m not going to wear just this, am I? I remembered wearing clothes...wait! What happened to the outfit I had on before?!”

I asked as I thought back to what happened last night, once I started to change into the thin fabric of clothing I was given. I looked at the plate of food, I didn’t realize just how hungry I was when the delicious aroma hit me...

“You’re in his King’s home and this is all you could wear. All humans that are brought here are never given clothes, but you are an exception in the king’s eyes, it’s also very important that you never take this collar off when you leave the castle.”

She explained while wrapping the collar around my neck, once she finished, she took a few steps back and bowed her head to me. Why is she doing that? And what did she mean by humans don’t wear clothes...also, why does she keep bringing up this king of hers?

“Humans? What are you talking about? And why do I have to wear this collar?”

I asked, looking down at what I was wearing, it was very clear that this isn’t the type of lingerie I would ever wear! In fact, I would never wear lingerie, I prefer plain sports bras and granny panties for comfort. Everything that Carla was talking about earlier sounded insane and unreal, but deep down I knew it was probably true. After all, Elijah killed that girl right in front of me. He didn’t even seem to care what he did, so why should I doubt anything?

“The king’s words are absolute, and I will carry them out until my last dying breath. Now please eat, you need your energy and must be kept healthy.”

She responded with strictness in her voice as she tilted her head a bit towards the food she brought in. Turning herself around, she started to make her way out the door. But I quickly grabbed her by the hand to make her stop from leaving! There were so many questions still left unanswered that I wouldn’t be able to keep calm with these emotions of mine...

“Please, why am I here? Where’s Ren?”

I asked her as I looked down at her hand, her finger was no longer bleeding. But it still looked so painful to look at. However, when I looked back at Carla, she stepped towards the side with her head down and her eyes closed. What is she doing now? I soon heard a sudden lock being opened! Quickly letting Carla’s hand go, I took a few steps back. Raising both hands close to my chest, I waited for whoever was about to come through the door! I soon got an immediate flashback as I stared at those blue eyes looking right back at mine!

“Elijah,” I spoke out worriedly as I watched him enter the room.

“How is her body doing?”

He asked Carla as he slowly began to approach me. So I made great efforts to step as far as I can from him only to be backed up against the wall...

“She should be fine now, my Lord. But she still needs a few more days of rest after what her body has gone through.”

She explained as she kept her head down...

“My body?! What happened to me! What...why am I here?!”

I voiced out hesitantly as I grabbed myself with terror. Was there a reason why my body was in so much pain earlier? I thought it was just painful cramps but I’ve come to realize that it was probably more than just that. I then stood there for a second and open my eyes wide to the situation...

“My baby, what happened to my baby?”

I asked with my words trembling along with my eyes watering to the realization of what might’ve happened...

“Carla, wait outside until I say so,” Eli order her as he ignored my question.

I then watched Carla take a bow and leave the room calmly. And right as she shut the door behind her, Elijah wasted no time closing the gap between us! Pulling me into a deep kiss, he pressed his lips so hard against mine that I felt that he would leave us both bruised lips after this! He held me so close that I could feel his body heating up next to mine, my legs could be felt shaking beneath me. Grabbing onto his tight chest, he continued to kiss me so harshly that I couldn’t even breathe right! Trying my best to pull my head back, I couldn’t move from where I was at as Eli held me in place as he pressed his lower half against mine! The feeling of his hard shaft was rubbing against me, along with the desires in his eyes. Yet my eyes held nothing but sadness and pain as I looked at him, only to then shut them tightly as I began to hit on his chest with full force!

“You’re a little fighter aren’t you, Luna,” Eli spoke out as he pulled away from me.

Opening my eyes, I watched him look at my body with such a desirable stare, I couldn’t help but tremble. How can he do this when he can clearly see how unhappy and terrified I am right now?!

“Stop...please, just stop...Eli...”

I pleaded as I grabbed each side of his cheek to have him look at me. He needs to know how serious I am, I can’t keep doing this, I won’t let him do as he pleases! He must know that this isn’t right, and I have to get that through his head somehow!

“Why can’t you understand...you are the only one I’ll give the world to. The only one that I’ll ever need. You’re my life Luna, my everything. So why can’t you see that you don’t need anything or anyone but me...”

He explained while clearing away my tears, I then looked away from him as he spoke. I tried to put some distance between us as I moved my hands on each side of his shoulders. But Eli kept pushing himself on to me as he suddenly grabbed my jaw and made me look at him!

“Why won’t you look at me?”

He asked, peering into my eyes with so much sorrow. But I didn’t care what he felt, at that moment...I only cared about my well-being and my pregnancy.

“Tell me, what happened...to my baby?”

I could hear my own voice cracking from the fear that was taking over me. Elijah’s stare changed as he looked at me with pure disgust. I was appalled by his reaction, he then suddenly turned me around to face the wall! Grabbing me from the throat, he arched my neck back...

“Eli...”

Calling out his name, I began to breathe heavily. The feeling of his hand tightened as I felt his lips graze against my lower ear so lightly...

“Even after I told you that I’m all you need...you still ask about someone else. Is that fucking parasite that important to you?”

He whispered lowly next to my ear, his heavy breathing was sending chills throughout my entire body that I felt helpless. But most of all, I felt sick to my stomach with what Eli said about my unborn baby! The anger and disgust that I had for what Eli said made me quickly turn myself around, slapping him across the face! I don’t care about the consequences I have to go through for hurting him, but I will never let anyone talk so low about me or my unborn child! I don’t care who you are, I’m willing to sacrifice anything to protect what I cherish dear to me! My hand was starting to sting a bit from the force I put into that slap. Squeezing both of my hands into a tight fist, I looked at Eli with hatred in my eyes as I watched him rub his cheek lightly. He didn’t even seem bothered or hurt by that slap!

“I think the one that should be doing the spanking is me, but I could see how serious you’re being right now which is no fun-”

Cutting him off, I went to slap him again. But he immediately stopped me as he grabbed my hand in mid-air and pinned it against the wall!

“Let me go right now!”

I shouted as I began to punch him on the chest with my other free hand!

“You’re really handsy today, aren’t you?”

He calmly said with a smile as he caught my other free hand, pinning it above my head as well! Looking deep into my eyes, the extreme silence between us grew tense. I was done playing games with him and I’m tired of my questions not being answered! It wasn’t until he let out a sigh that he decided to speak up finally, but all I could do was listen in horror to what he had to say...

“Luna, I told you that I would kill anyone who stands between us. Even your own child that isn’t even mine, did you think I was going to let that revolting thing inside you, live? Especially when it belongs to that disgusting human who I despise. You’ve been testing my patience for too long now, so I have to punish you. But don’t worry, I won’t ever take your body by force. I have other ways of making you suffer just like what you did to me. I truly do love you, but that doesn’t mean you could do whatever you want and not pay the price. As for that human, Ren...I’ll keep him alive...but just a barely.”

Hearing his words, I was left speechless. The terror I was in left me completely broken! I don’t think there’s a word to describe what I was feeling as I felt myself sinking further into this dark heavy sorrow that was eating me alive. It felt as if my whole world came crashing down and I had nothing left to fight for!

“You monster....”

I quietly said as I felt my body shake with hatred, anger, sadness. Every possible negative emotion was running through my mind as I tighten my jaw...

“What was that-”

“You fucking monster! Why?! How could you do this to me!? My baby...my baby...”

I cried out in tears, with Elijah letting my hands go free. He held me in his embrace as he began to run his fingers through my long hair. But all I could do is scream in pain at how broken I felt from the inside! I didn’t want him touching me, I didn’t want him anywhere near me! But all I could do is cry on his shoulder after what he did to me! All my strength seems to be drained from my body as I was just too weak and broken to push him away...

“Luna, it’ll be okay. It’s not your fault that this happened...you wouldn’t have wanted that disgusting pregnancy. I promise you...that I will give you a child that is worthy for you to have in this world. So don’t shed your beautiful tears for something useless...”

He said while placing a kiss on my forehead, he had no remorse for what he was telling me. Elijah didn’t care what I felt at all about my loss...

“I hate you...I hate you more than anything in this world.”

I said to him as I felt completely numb...

“That’s good...keep hating me, hate me with every being in your body until I’m all you could think about. You’ll always be the most important thing to me, Luna.”

He responded to my hated comment as he finally let me go. But I continued to stand there unable to move as Eli began to walk out the room, however, he stopped himself once he opened the door...

“I know what you must be feeling, having something part of you being ripped away. Feeling empty and alone, I know what it feels like. Believe me, but I promise you...it’ll only hurt for a while-”

“I’ll kill you.”

I bluntly stated as I stood there with no strength left in me. How could Eli possibly know how it feels like to lose a child that wasn’t even brought to this world yet? How can he stand there and smile after he admitted to murdering my unborn baby!? How can he look at me so calmly and say that he won’t kill Ren, yet how do I know if he hasn’t already!? He’s a fucking monster! I will never forgive him for this!

“The day that you kill me, will be the day you’ll die with me. Never forget these words, Luna. You belong to me, today, tomorrow, and forever.”

He said with a painful smile, he then walked out of the room and I could hear the door being locked from the outside. So I instantly grabbed the plate of food that was on my bed and threw it harshly against the door once he was on the other side! The loud shattering of the plate could be heard breaking as I saw multiple pieces of glass being flown across the floor!

“Ren, I’m sorry...I’m so sorry...I couldn’t protect our baby...”

I cried out in guilt as I laid on the cold bed, the hollow feeling inside me, scared me. I was afraid of my own emotions because I didn’t know what I might do to myself. But what I do know is that I will always hate my birthday from now on because of him. It will forever remind me of what I lost most important to me...

“I will never forgive you...Eli.”
