Chapter 63

I wanted to cry and cry because of how badly I needed him. I was so going to kill him for that. I looked like a complete mess, I felt like a complete mess and I had to go see Nina now and she was going to ask so many questions of why I sounded like a complete lunatic talking to her on the phone.

I quickly fixed my hair as best as I could, hoping it didn’t look like a huge mess because I had no mirror to check. I then quickly made my way over to Nina’s car having to constantly clench my legs at the remembrance of Dimitri’s touch. It was driving me insane.

I finally made it over and opened the door to the passenger seat and as soon as I sat down she burst out into laughter. My eyes widened not wanting to know why she was laughing as I slumped down into my scene. “Dimitri, I need you! Pleaaase!” She mimicked me before laughing again and I turned to her with a look of horror on my face. Please someone tell me she didn’t hear me. “You didn’t turn your phone off.” She showed me and I groaned, burying my face into my hands in embarrassment.

“Stop Nina! This is so embarrassing!” I wanted to cry and kill Dimitri even more. He wasn’t going to come out of this one alive.

She continued laughing, holding onto her stomach in pain. “And also... your shirt is buttoned all wrong and your hair’s a complete mess, and your lipstick is smeared down your face!” She exclaimed and I pulled out the mirror in Nina’s car and looked at my appearance in complete horror. I had pink lipstick smeared all around my mouth and down to my chin and my hair was a complete birds nest. My skin was flushed a bright pink and my lips were very swollen.

“You look like some beast mauled you. A very sexy beast.” She winked before bursting into more laughter causing me to groan. Dimitri was a very sexy beast indeed, but I was still going to kill him.

Nina handed me some tissues so I could wipe the lipstick away. As I was wiping my lips I thought back to Dimitri. I don’t remember seeing any lipstick smeared on his lips from kissing me. But maybe that was because I was so far gone in his arms, I couldn’t focus or do anything. Just like I had failed to end the damn call. But now that I think back, I remember him rubbing his mouth against the back of his hand.

“I feel so embarrassed Nina!” I exclaimed and she waved it off with her hands.

“Hey, it’s not like I haven’t had my moments with my boyfriend.” She spoke reassuring me, but it was still embarrassing. “You might want to button your shirt up properly though and fix your hair before going home. You seriously look like you got mauled. What did the King even do to my innocent best friend?”

I buttoned up my shirt properly as Nina giggled some more. “Have you guys had actual sex?” She asked and I nodded my head, feeling myself blush. “Wow, the King must have skill to convince you to have sex with him before marriage!” She exclaimed really surprised.

“He didn’t convince me at all actually. I told him I wanted to do it. He didn’t even bring it up to be honest. But I wanted him to take my virginity away and he did.” I explained to her before I decided to launch into my entire story as I had promised her, explaining to her why Dimitri has come to mean so much to me and why I loved him so much. She listened attentively asking questions as I went along and she seemed really impressed with me for catching the eye of two demons, let alone the Demon King himself.

“Wow!” She exclaimed once I had finished my story. “That’s intense, that’s actually really intense. You love him a lot, don’t you? Risking your life for him to save him from the Shadow. That’s true devotion Isa.” She spoke as she drove me home. “But, Isa I want you to be careful. I don’t want to see you heartbroken. You love him a lot, more than I’ve ever seen anyone love someone. And it makes sense why you love him so much, you went through so much together, and I know he loves you too but be careful anyways. He could hurt you and I don’t want to see you heartbroken. You did say he’s been with a lot of women before so he could one day decide to leave you for someone else.”

“He wouldn’t Nina, I know him.” I spoke softly thinking about Dimitri. I knew he’d never leave. I knew he’d never intentionally hurt me.

“Look Isa, I don’t know him like you do so you’re probably right. But love blinds you. It blinds you to a lot of things and I need you to be careful. Don’t let your love for him blind you. Don’t just act from your heart, act from your mind as well. Use both your mind and heart, that’s the only way you’ll survive.” She spoke and I nodded my head, knowing where she was coming from.

I was home and I came in to greet my parents. I noticed them watching the news on Dimitri and I prayed his apology would be enough to convince them to let me be with him. “How was your day?” My dad asked and I frowned.

“Horrible Dad!” I exclaimed as I dumped my bag down onto a chair. “I have so many assignments to complete and I can already feel the stress eating me alive.”

“If you need help with anything, you can come to your Mom and I.” He said with a small smile and I nodded my head as I took a seat beside him. “Dad...” I hesitated, not sure if I should bring Dimitri up right now.

“You’re going to ask me about Dimitri, aren’t you?” He asked causing me to sheepishly grin and nod my head.

He sighed but remained quiet. “Dad, I’m 18, I’m allowed to make decisions for myself.” I spoke causing him to sigh again.

“I know Isabella. I know I can’t really stop you from seeing him. But Isa, I care about you. I don’t want any boys to break my sweet, angel’s heart. I care about you, Isa and I don’t want him to hurt you. I’m a father, obviously I’m going to feel over-protective when it comes to my daughters. And I don’t like Dimitri. He hurt you. And for that, I’ll never forgive him. I will never approve of him and I don’t want him near you.” My Dad said causing me to turn away. I felt tears fill my eyes. I didn’t want to make my Dad angry by going against him, but I didn’t want to lose Dimitri either.

“I love him, Dad.” I spoke softly as the tears slipped from my eyes. My Dad frowned wiping my tears away. “You say you don’t want me hurt, but I’m hurting more than ever right now because I can’t be with him.”

“Let her be with him.” My mom spoke up to my dad. “She’s old enough to make the right decisions for herself. If she ends up heartbroken, it’ll be her fault. It’ll be all on her.” I nodded my head, looking to my dad with hope in my eyes.

My dad did not look happy about any of this, but he seemed to be thinking. “I hate him Isa, that I’ve made clear enough. But I’m willing to give him a chance. I’d like to get to know this guy who has seemed to capture my daughter’s heart, actually both my daughters heart. Your sister was trying to convince me to let you be with him. We’ll invite him over for dinner sometime soon, so I can properly meet and understand him.” My Dad said and I grinned widely immediately leaning in to hug my Dad.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you!” I exclaimed in excitement and happiness. My Dad was actually willing to give Dimitri a chance! I felt my chest fill with joy at the thought of being able to freely be with Dimitri.

*****

It was two in the morning and I was still working on my school assignments when I heard tapping on my window. I smiled to myself realizing it was probably Dimitri, just like he came yesterday. Today he showed up really late and it was probably because he just came back from Rovana. Usually I’d be sleep by now but thankfully today I was awake because I really wanted to spend the night with him again, even though I was still angry at him.

I quickly made my way over to the window and pulled away my curtain to find it was him. I then went to the door that led to my balcony and opened my door, with my arms crossed across my chest.

“You are the biggest asshole I have ever met in my entire life!” I exclaimed, shutting the door behind me. He smirked at me as he placed his arms around my waist pulling me close to him.

“But you love me anyways.” He whispered, his lips grazing my ear. I pushed him away from me just then, glaring at him.

“Don’t be like that, Izzie. I was just playing around with you.” He spoke still grinning at me while I stared back at him in complete bewilderment.

“You were playing around with me? You freaking dragged me off into the forest, did all those crazy things to me, things you shouldn’t have done in public like that, and then left me all frazzled like that. And Nina knew everything we did because of you! Because you told me to answer that damn phone while you were doing all those things to me!” I exclaimed as loud as I could without waking my parents up.

“But you loved it.” He spoke with a smug smirk on his face. “And besides you were the one telling me to do whatever I wanted with you. And I did just that. I did exactly what I wanted.” He stated matter-of-factly with his stupid grin plastered across his devilishly handsome face.

“I wasn’t in my right mind and you knew that! I wasn’t in control of what I was saying! And besides, even then I never meant for you to leave me like that!” I exclaimed causing him to blow me a kiss, causing me to glare at him.

“Stop acting stupid. I’m really mad at you right now.” I grumbled at him as he chuckled and wrapped his arms around me, pulling me close to him.

He held me quietly for a few moments, stroking my back. “Don’t be mad at me Izzie.” He spoke softly now, the humour disappearing from his voice. “I’m sorry, I promise I’ll be nicer next time. I’ll still tease you though because it’s fun teasing you.” He chuckled at his last sentence causing me to glare up at him again. “But I promise you won’t be left disappointed.”

“I’m still angry at you.” I mumbled causing him to pull away and look down at me.

“Then what would Her Highness like me to do then to pay for the crimes I have committed against her?” He spoke with a small smile on jis face and I smiled up at him. “The irony in that sentence.” I said as I thought of how ironic it was of the King himself to say ‘Her Highness’ to me as a joke.

“Yeah it is ironic.” He spoke nonchalantly as if he had something more important to say. “You know, Rovana would really love a Queen. We haven’t had one in ages....” He spoke slowly, trailing off at the end as he watched me carefully as if trying to gauge my reaction. I silently stared back at him, not sure where this conversation was going as it had taken a complete one-eighty. I felt kind of nervous suddenly and I wasn’t sure why.

Dimitri and I stared at each other for a good two minutes or so before I decided to break the killer silence. “We should get going inside, it’s cold. And I have a lot of work to complete.” I said pulling away from him as I opened the door back to my bedroom. I walked inside with Dimitri trailing behind me.
