Chapter 1- Beautiful Stranger
I opened my eyes the first thing I saw was a pair of chocolate brown eyes staring at me with a strange expression.
Everything was a blur. So, I rubbed my eyes to focus my vision. Then looked towards the owner of those beautiful eyes.
That specimen was handsome. He had perfectly tanned skin, black curly hair, warm beautiful brown eyes, and a black mask that was covering the rest of his face. He was wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans.
I was engrossed in my thoughts, examining the stranger when I felt a tap on my shoulder. That pulled me back into reality.
I jumped, stood up, and tried to remember how I end up here.
Then the realization hit me I successfully ran from the darkness. I was running into the woods away from all the nightmares, away from all the bad people, and my terrible past.
I shivered in fear and shed tears. Big, warm, devastating tears were sliding from my side of the face. My legs trembled, and I was about to fall when a pair of strong arms caught me and slowly helped me to sit on the floor.
I sat on the floor and cried my heart in front of a stranger. I was sobbing when a rough hand touched my face and wiped my tears gently with his thump.
I tensed under his touch and tried to push him.
“Please, don't hurt me,” I said shivering with fear.
“ Hey, calm down. I am not going to hurt you,” he said in his deep voice.
“ Please, leave me." I pleaded. Trying to pull me away from him.
Then, the next thing that happened was unexpected. He caught my hands and pulled me into his hard chest. I tried to lose his grip, but he was too strong.
“ Shh! It's okay. No one is going to harm you. You are safe. Calm down. Breath. Inhale. Exhale.” He whispered into my ears.
I was horrified, but I still listened to him and tried to control my breath. He just rubbed my back gently and whispering encouraging words into my ear.
After a while, he loosens his grip, and I removed my head from his chest and put some gap between us.
He stood up and picked me up in bridal style and put me on the couch. Then without saying anything he went somewhere.
Everything happened so quickly that I was not able to react and sat on the couch like a fool.
Then I noticed my surrounding. It was a small room with a large brown couch and a wooden table kept in front of it. There was a small T. V. on the wall and two doors, one was assumed was the entrance and the other was for the bathroom. I also noticed that a small corner was set up as the kitchen. Also, There was a small closet and a study table on the other side of the room. The room was coloured white. It was small but comfy.
I was busy looking around when I felt some noises near me. I glanced toward that direction and saw a glass of water and a plate with fruits and eggs served on it.
Without thinking, I took the plate and started eating like an animal. I finished my food and drank the water in one flow.
Then I realized, I was not alone. I peeked towards the stranger and saw concern in his eyes. I gazed down in embarrassment.
“ When was the last time you ate food?” he asked softly.
I recalled. It was two days ago before I ran from him. All the nasty memories came into my mind. I again reduced to tears.
He sat near me and said," Please don't cry. It's okay if you don't want to tell me. I can wait until you are ready. I just want to assure you that you are safe here and no one is going to harm you."
I looked into his eyes and saw the sincerity in his eyes. I whipped my tears with my trembling hand and thanked him.
“ No need to thank me, little one. Have some rest. I will go and get some medicine for you." He said and placed a pillow and a blanket on the couch.
I didn't have the energy for arguing. So I obeyed him and laid down on the couch and closed my eyes. I was so tired that within no time I went into the darkness.
I went to the city and brought some medicine and other essentials for her.
I sat at the end of the couch and stare at the gorgeous tiny girl peacefully sleeping on the couch.
She was breathtakingly beautiful. She has an angelic face with wide dark black eyes, long alluring brown hair, and a beautiful tiny body.
She was marvellous but broken. Anyone can look into her eyes and tell that she had suffered a lot. She has bruises, marks, and cuts all over her body. Her eyes are filled with pain and grief.
My blood started boiling with anger when I think that someone can be so cruel to harm such a beautiful girl. I don't know who she is, what was she doing in the forest, and who did this to her, but I don't know why, I have an urge to protect her.
I was cutting a log when I felt some movement in the forest. I thought that it was some animal, so I went in that direction.
I went into the forest to look around and found nothing. When I was about to go back. I heard some movement near a huge tree.
I followed it and found a girl curled into a ball lying under it. She was covered with dirt and dried blood and her clothes were also torn.
I picked her up carefully and took her back into my small house.
