Journey Of The REINE (ON HOLD)

Xavier’s POV:

Today, I was flying back to New York from London after a long business trip. It was a very important project for me and my company. I slept for most of the time I was in my private jet as I had gotten little sleep these days because of working till late night for the project and then waking up early in the morning for the meetings. So, I used my time wisely by using them for completing my sleep.

My flight landed in the afternoon and my sixteen most trusted bodyguards were there to lead me back to my mansion. I was going to the exit gate of the airport when I clashed into a soft body. I looked in that direction and saw the most beautiful women I had ever laid my eyes on.

She was as beautiful as a goddess. Her skin flawlessly fair and looked as soft as silk. She had high cheekbones and had a natural blush on it. Her amber eyes, with rings of red surrounding her irises, looked as if a lava is there and could consume or melt anyone present near her.

Her long eyelashes touched her cheekbones whenever she blinked and her fiery red hair tied in a high ponytail with a few strands of hair framing her child-like face. I had a tremendous urge to tuck those strands behind her ears so that I could see her face more clearly. Her pouty red lips calling me to kiss her as if there was no tomorrow.

Her black dress complimenting her skin tone and showing off her curves perfectly, making me want to lock her up in a tower away from all those filthy men’s lustful eyes.

What is happening to me? I never had such thoughts about any woman like that. I cared less about how they looked, and neither did I ever notice such minute details about any women. I stayed away from women ever since that woman…. I shook my head to get those thoughts out of my head. I didn’t want to think about HER now or ever in my life.

My attention snapped back to her beautiful eyes, and I was surprised to see her eyes. They were cold and emotionless, unlike the flirtatious or lustful ones I always get from women. It was as if she was scrutinizing me with her hawk-like eyes, but was not much interested in knowing me. We gazed at each other for I don’t know how long, not like I minded because I could look at those beautiful amber eyes for my entire life. She looked like an angel… a mysterious angel, but still an angel.

Little did I know she is the most ruthless DEVIL.

But our little moment was broken by the crying of a baby. I looked around and noticed a man who was dressed like a bodyguard holding a baby with an uncomfortable look on his face. He clearly was not used to such works.

To my utter disbelieve, the guard handed the baby to the woman in front of me. I then noticed that there were total 16 bodyguards with her. She carefully took that baby in her arms and rocked her back to sleep. The baby snuggled closer to her and put her head on her chest. I had to admit that the baby was cute. Then the woman smiled, looking at the baby. I was mesmerized after seeing her smile. She was looking breathtakingly beautiful with her smile.

I wish to be the reason for her smile…. I sighed at my thoughts.

Then, it hit me like a bunch of rocks.

Is it her baby? Is she a mother? Most importantly, is she in a relationship? Or worst, is she MARRIED?

These trains of thoughts brought forth many foreign emotions inside me. I am sure these were reflected in my eyes as well. Any thought of another man in her life except me made it hard for me to compose myself. I clenched my fists and took deep breaths to calm myself.





And many other emotions were felt by me, all at the same time.

My inner battle was broken when I heard a cold yet an angelic voice.

“Excuse me, Mr. Knight, but I have to go now,” she said and walked away elegantly without even looking back once, leaving me in my misery.

I stared in the direction in which she left, deep in my thoughts.

Maybe it’s not her baby. The baby could be of one of her siblings or cousin, and so she was taking care of her. Or she could be a single mother. Yes, right, I should first find out the truth before thinking what to do next. But one thing is for sure, that I am not giving up on her and she is MINE, no matter if she is a mother or not…..

I smirked and went outside the airport and sat inside the car. I looked at my assistant sitting in the passenger seat of the car and said in my usual cold voice, “find all the details about the woman I bumped into, earlier.”

“Yes sir”

I leaned my head against the window and closed my eyes. The image of those amber eyes filled my mind, and I surrendered to the darkness, thinking about those beautiful yet mysterious eyes.

I entered my new mansion and again slept for the entire day, dreaming about that mysterious woman after having lunch to make up for my lost sleep in those last few days. I skipped dinner and woke up early the next day to go for a morning run.

I woke up at 5 am and brushed my teeth to get rid of my morning breath and changed into grey sweatpants with a matching sweatshirt. I took my ear pods with my mobile phone and started jogging to the nearest park. It was pretty early in the morning, so very few people were there in the park. I spotted a familiar woman with fiery red hair near a bench, drinking water from a bottle.

I went near her and said in a gentle voice, “Hello Angel.”

She looked surprised after seeing me there and raised one eyebrow and smirked, as if taunting me. I was confused but didn’t comment.

“Hello Mr. Knight. I don’t think that we know each other so well that we call each other by nicknames, now do we?” she said in a cold and emotionless voice.

“Well, why don’t we get to know each other now? I am Xavier Knight and what is your name, Angel?” I asked with a smirk.

She rolled her eyes and replied in an uninterested tone, “I know who you are. That’s why I was calling you Mr. Knight. And no, I am not interested in getting familiar with you. So, I am sorry but I have to continue my workout.”

If it would have been someone else other than my Queen then, I would have killed them for disrespecting me and rolling their eyes on me. But, for some odd reasons, I felt amused by seeing by feisty angel. I already knew she was different.

She was not like those women who shamelessly threw themselves at me. I didn’t realize that I was mindlessly staring at the spot where she stood minutes before. I spotted her at some distance and started running after her. After some moments, I was running beside her at her pace.

“It’s fine if you don’t want to get to know me here at a park. I get it. Why don’t we go somewhere private so that we can get to know each other better and more deeply?” I asked with a cocky smirk.

Instead of getting her blushing face, I get an icy hard glare with all traces of emotions vanished from her face. Not that there was much before. She stopped running and fixed me with her gaze. I never felt scared in my entire life but, believe me when I say, that she was looking really scary then. I gulped and looked here and there as if that would tell me the reason for her sudden change of demeanor.

“I didn’t know that the famous billionaire was a player and a fuck boy, but I guess, media doesn’t show everyone’s truth. Listen to me and listen well because I will not repeat myself. I AM NOT LIKE OTHER FEMALES WHOM YOU SLEEP WITH. I DON’T CARE WHO YOU ARE BUT, REMEMBER ONE THING, THAT NEVER EVER TRY TO COME CLOSE TO ME, OTHERWISE, YOU WILL REGRET IT AND I WILL SHOW NO MERCY. SO, STAY. AWAY. FROM. ME,” she said in an icy voice with disgust clearly visible on her face and stormed off to the direction from which we came earlier.

I was stunned by that. NO ONE and I repeat myself, NO ONE ever dared to raise their voice on me. Let alone threaten me. But I didn’t feel angry at my queen, instead I was feeling guilty for giving her a wrong impression. It was a misunderstanding. I was just teasing her. I didn’t really mean those things.

After some moments, I came out of my shock and was going to apologize to her and explain things but; I noticed she had left already.

I sighed and headed to my mansion too. I was no longer in a mood for a workout.

Guess I have some explaining to do. I will clear all the misunderstandings and will even apologize to you if I have to do to gain your forgiveness, MY QUEEN. You will be mine soon, Angel.
