โ€œSienna, you must be absurd if you think we are just going to let you move out like this, you and Mr Arcin are not even officially engaged, what are you trying to put the family name in the ground?โ€ my mother yells in my face as I hold back the urge to retaliate a response that will surely leave her in tears.

โ€œWe are to be married, whether you like it or not mother, I am bound to leave this house sooner or later, so if my fiancรฉe wants me to be by his side until the wedding is due, I donโ€™t see what the problem is, I am not a little girl anymore, I can make my own decisions.โ€

โ€œI said what I said, Sienna, donโ€™t you dare defy meโ€ she glares daggers into my soul, interrupting this lovely once in a while family dinner.

Speaking of family dinner, I have no idea why Adonis is seated among us, he isnโ€™t part of the family and yet he is always hauled up in Aishaโ€™s room, spending countless nights here, and in response, my mother turns a blind eye as if she doesnโ€™t see what it is theyโ€™re doing, Aisha will be 19 soon, with no ambitions, no goals and just existing to kiss all their asses, it is honestly a shame that weโ€™re related.

โ€œMother, in case you have forgotten, I belong to Mr Arcin now, every fibre of my being is his possession, due to how all of you auctioned me off the other day as if I was nothing but a mere objectโ€ I eye her as both her and my father avoid my gaze, a pained expression visible on his features. โ€œAnyways...โ€ I continue โ€œEros was infatuated with me and I got lucky I guess, so if you think itโ€™s a good idea to deny him his right to take what belongs to him, you are probably risking the good ties you have with the Arcin legacy and you especially, donโ€™t get to tell me what to doโ€

She glares at me infuriated as she breaks into tears.
โ€œSienna, I am your mother, how dare you speak to me like that? just because you got all you wanted all your life, defying the ancient rules and protocols of our town, doesnโ€™t mean youโ€™re any better than any of usโ€ she cries into her hands.

I watch, with no regrets for my words as Adonis stands to his feet, his eyes locking with mine as he shakes his head, disappointed, โ€œSienna, this is your mother, you should be ashamed of yourself for speaking to her like thatโ€ he says, crouching down beside her as he brings his handkerchief to wipe away her fake tears.

โ€œI-โ€

โ€œEnough! canโ€™t we just have peace and quiet for the rest of the evening?โ€ my father interjects, suddenly sounding annoyed.

โ€œAll of you are constantly complaining about how I never join any family dinners but when I do, its always a catfight between the two of you, Natalia, can you not pressure her to do what she doesnโ€™t want to, Arcin is a powerful man, heโ€™s got connections, even more than me, we canโ€™t deny himโ€ he gazes at her before turning to me.

โ€œAnd you, Sienna, no matter how angry you are, she remains your mother, you cannot speak to her like thatโ€ he sighs heavily, clicking his tongue before excusing himself and leaving the table.

โ€œHoney, honey Iโ€™m sorry, please come back, at least finish your foodโ€ my mother chases after him as he exits the room, rubbing his temple stressfully.

โ€œHappy now?โ€ Aisha butts in, glaring at me as she locks her hand around Adonisโ€™ arm, helping him to his feet.
โ€œWhy canโ€™t you do all of us a favour and just off yourself, literally nobody wants you hereโ€ she yells in my face as he holds her back from stepping any closer than she already is.

โ€œYouโ€™re ruining this family, father is always stressed because of you, you keep on making motherโ€™s life miserable and youโ€™re so jealous about my relationship with your betrothed that you think itโ€™s necessary to destroy this bond me and him have established, Sienna literally fall and die, nobody wants you, even that Arcin took you out of pity, donโ€™t tell me you believed that he would actually want someone as nauseating as you-โ€

โ€œCome on Aisha, thatโ€™s enough-โ€ Adonis tries to butt in, pulling her away from me.
โ€œDonโ€™t interrupt me when Iโ€™m speaking with my sister, Adonisโ€ she yells in his face as he lifts his hands in defeat, taking a few steps back.

โ€œIf you have even the smallest amount of sympathy for your father, for how much you make the both of them regret having you, then...โ€ she slips her hand into the back pocket of Adonisโ€™ jeans, pulling out his pistol.

โ€œThen do us all a favour and end your existence right now, shove the barrel down your throat and free us from your torturing existence, you donโ€™t understand how much I hate you, sister, how much all of us doโ€ she eyes me, a smirk tugging at the corners of her lips โ€œgo on, do it, you might enjoy it tooโ€ she shoves it into my hands as I push away my tears.

โ€œStop itโ€ my voice breaks out in a whisper.

โ€œAisha, stop it, this isnโ€™t funny anymoreโ€ he attempts to take the gun from my hands, but she pushes him back.

โ€œHush baby, donโ€™t you hate her as well?, how she overpassed you in all academic fields, how she humiliated you the day of the auction, how she challenges you for simply being perfectโ€ I watch as she brainwashes him, cupping his face between her hands as he falters in his step.

โ€œDo it, sis, what is holding you back? is it Eros? do you think that Eros really likes you, that he is going to support your delusional plans for the future? you humour meโ€ she chuckles bringing her hand to tilt my chin up, locking my gaze with hers.

I choke back a sob as the tears break through the barrier, blurring my vision as they run loose.

โ€œOh, look at how pathetic you are...he is going to break youโ€ she hisses.

โ€œS-stop itโ€ I cry, pushing her away as she giggles maniacally.

โ€œDo it, big sis, what are you so afraid of?, are you scared that someone might miss you?, well I can assure you nobody is going to, well...maybe except for Mr Arcin, since he spent such a big fortune on youโ€™re useless being, the man must have been really desperate to get a taste of you before he tosses you away, that isโ€ she laughs, throwing her head back as her evilness echoes throughout the room.

โ€œNobody wants you, with or without fatherโ€™s influence, they all want your body, all of fatherโ€™s friends, the whole town, even Eros, they want a woman with a beautiful body who can sit quietly and take all the built-up frustration they can remove on them at the end of a tough day at work.

In our world, you lose your purity at a young age, but look at you, all grown up and you havenโ€™t even become a woman yet, Iโ€™m younger than you and yet I know how to have my way with men way better than you do, itโ€™s almost ridiculousโ€ she scoffs before returning her attention to Adonis.

โ€œBaby, remember that blonde blue-eyed guy in your former class? the one you were always hanging with? oh yeah, heโ€™s a horrible personโ€ she laughs, making my nerves stand on end as my eyes widen.

โ€œItโ€™s funny how the only person who wanted you and was bold enough to act on it was that Trevor foyers who had to resort to force to take advantage of your depressing excuse of a life.โ€ she laughs in my face.

โ€œDo you remember it?, how I found him doing all those horrible things to you in the storage room at fatherโ€™s annual new yearโ€™s party?โ€ she smirks as I cry into my hands, my breaths coming out short and restricted.

โ€œDo you remember it, sis? how you were trying to scream, trying to escape his hold?
How he took away your purity as I watched helplessly?
wanna know why I didnโ€™t help you?โ€ she grits her teeth, spitting her words in my face.

โ€œBecause I fรผcking hate you so much, I hate you for existing, I hate you with all of my heart and I loved every moment, watching as you called to me for help when he wouldnโ€™t let you go.

How you threw up for days after the incident and how mother and father had no clue about it, I hope it happens to you, again and again until-โ€

โ€œAisha, what the fรผck is wrong with you?โ€ Adonis shouts at her, anger is present on his face as he clenches his jaw.

โ€œHow could you do and say something so...inhumane, is there something wrong with you ?โ€ he yells, grabbing her by the shoulders as the disgusting memories slip into my brain, reminding me of that horrible night.

I know I shouldnโ€™t let her meaningless words get to me, but regardless of that, it hurts so much, it hurts that my own blood sister hates me so much.
It hurts that I managed to forgive her even after all sheโ€™s done to me.

Iโ€™m crying into my hands when the noise of faltering footsteps sound behind me, I watch as Aishaโ€™s laughter comes to a pause, a terrified expression taking over her face, Adonis is glaring at her, bewildered before his gaze falls on the door as well, his eyes slightly widening.

I follow their terrified looks, glancing at the door to be met with an ice-cold stare, he is standing there, Erosโ€™ terrifying gaze sending shivers down my spine.

He drops the suitcases in his hands, his gaze travelling from me to Aisha, to the gun in my shaking hands.
Me, Aisha, the gun between my hands.

Over and over before they settle on me, his gaze following the tears running down my face.

And then he turns to Aisha, his eyes filled with the intent to kill.
