When I opened my eyes the first thing I saw was a pair of chocolate brown eyes staring at me with a strange expression. I was in my own thoughts when I felt a tap on my shoulders. I came back into the reality . Then I saw the owner of those beautiful eyes ,he was wearing a black hoody with a plain blue Jean's and a mask was covering his face .I asked him "Who are you ". He kept on staring at me . After a while he replies "Dark" then he came near me and sat beside me and continued "Why were you in the woods ". Then the reality hit me and I started crying . I started shivering with fear. I was sobbing when a large hand came on my face and whipped my tears and the other hand was placed on my back .
I don't know what came into my mind and I came near him and sat on his lap .I placed my head on his shoulder and hugged him . He was suprised by my action but after few moments he hugged me back . We remain in this position for a while. Then I heard his deep voice "what's your name little one". I tilt my head towards his face and replied "Ray, nice to meet you ". He keep staring at me and gave me a small smile . We kept staring at each other , after a long comfortable silence he said "Ray!! don't worry , you are safe with me . No one will harm you . "
I gave him a smile and said" Thank you so much . I appreciate your help but I don't want to become a burden on you . " He took my face into my hand and said "Little one , you are not a burden ,you can live here as long as you want. " I kept staring at his face with a soft smile .
After a while he whispered in my ear" Are you planning to sit on me forever" . My face became red with embarrassment. I jumped from his lap at sat on the couch.
Then I notice my surrounding . It was a small room with a large couch and a small table in front of it . There was a small TV on the wall . There were two wooden gates . I assumed one was the entrance and the order was for the bath room . A small corner was set as the kitchen . I was busy looking at the surrounding when I felt some movement near me . I turn my head and saw a glass of water with some fruits and egg .As soon as I saw the food I started eating like an animal . Then I realised I was not alone. I looked towards Dark and I saw a small smile on his face and amusement in his eyes .He asked" When was the last time you ate food "
I recall when was the last time I ate. It was 2 days ago before I ran from the hell. The memories of that place came to my mind I again started crying . I was sobbing when dark pick me up from my hips like I weighed nothing and place me on his lap . I rap my legs on his wiest. He cupped my face with his huge hands and said " Shush !!you don't have to tell me. I can wait till you are ready . I just want to assure you that you are safe as long as you are with me . I will protect you . "
I gave him a smile and hugged him . he hugged me back and he whispered " Little one have some rest , i will go and get some food for you " . I nodded but kept my head on his shoulder. Then the last thing Ithat I remember before I slept was his voice " I am there for you princess "
