Chapter 67

I couldn’t live without Dimitri. Especially not after how far we’d come together. I can still remember when I was first brought down to Rovana and how cold-hearted Dimitri was to all of us. I still remember the hatred we both had for each other and how he almost killed me when we first met. I remember the way we bickered and argued about everything and how miserable I was in Rovana.

And then I remember the way we fell in love, so suddenly and unexpectedly. I remember how into Kenneth I was and how I thought he was the one for me, the one I’d be with forever. I remember how much I thought I loved him and I remember thinking he loved me the same, leaving me all those cute notes and flowers.

But then I so shockingly found out it was Dimitri sending me those romantic notes instead and that Rovana’s Demon King had fallen for me. Then I remember all the troubles that came after the discovery. All the torture we’d gone through to fight off the Shadow and save Rovana.

I wasn’t about to throw any of that away. What I had with Dimitri was special and so dear to my heart. Not many people got to experience our kind of love, and it was very important to me.

Once I was done breakfast I went up to my room wondering when I’d see Dimitri again. My parents had gone to work and Brittany went to hang out at the mall with her friends. David went to hang out with some of his friends too so I was left alone with the house.

I suddenly heard a knock on the door and I went downstairs to check who it was. I opened the door and found Dimitri staring back at me with a small smile. Seeing him brought immense pain to my chest as I remembered the dream I had last night.

I pulled him inside my house, locked the door and then pressed him against the wall as I attacked him with my kisses. I was practically jumping on top of him as I kissed him causing him to chuckle in amusement.

“Take it easy Isabella.” He said as he pulled away, grinning at my eagerness. “I know you’re excited to see me again but you’re provoking me and I don’t want to take you again today. You’re probably still sore from yesterday.” He spoke and he was right. All morning my lower body was in pain, but it was the wonderful satisfactory pain that you get after having wonderful, wild sex.

I didn’t want to tell him about my dream and ruin the good mood he was in, so I decided to keep that a secret. “Are we home alone?” He asked and I nodded my head, watching the mischievous glint in his eyes grow. He then shook his head. “No, we can’t do anything. I don’t want to hurt you.”

“I wouldn’t mind if we go at each other with another round of se-” He cut me off with a low growl as I noted his eyes darken.

“No, we aren’t doing it. I’m not planning on hurting you.” He said before he started walking inside further. “I can’t wait until you can live with me. I can imagine all the places we could make love. I’d do it everywhere with you.” He smirked at me and I blushed, the thought sounding so appealing.

We walked into the living room and Dimitri sprawled himself out on the couch. I was about to sit on the other couch, since I couldn’t fit on the same couch as Dimitri but he grabbed my arm and pulled me on top of him in one swift motion.

I tumbled onto him, my hands resting on his shoulders as I lifted my head so I was right above him, my eyes staring down into his, our noses touching. He grinned at me and I blushed not knowing why. We’d done so much together, yet something like this was making me blush. He’s seen and touched every inch of my body but laying on top of him like this, fully clothed and staring down into his eyes made me feel all sorts of butterflies in my stomach.

We were both quiet as we gazed at each other. It’s like all the sounds of the world had quietened down and all I could hear was our breathing. All I could feel was him underneath me, solid and reassuring. “Please don’t ever leave me.” I breathed out, worry lacing my words as I recalled my dreams from last night.

“Never Izzie.” Dimitri spoke as he reached up and cupped my cheek in his hand. “I’ve been waiting my entire life for you, I’m not about to leave you. Ever.”

I could feel tears well up in my eyes and I instantly pulled away from him, getting up off him. I then ran off to the bathroom not wanting him to see me crying even though it was useless since he had seen the tears in my eyes. I could tell by the sudden concern on his features.

I was so scared. I knew these nightmares were going to come true. I just knew they were and that frightened me more than anything. All our previous dreams and nightmares had come true. And not only was I having nightmares but so was Dimitri.

“Izzie, open the door!” Dimitri exclaimed knocking on the door just as I felt the tears slid down my face. “Please baby. I want to know that you’re okay.” He spoke more softly this time.

I let out a whimper by accident and I knew he had heard. “Isabella. Open the door. Now!” He demanded and I started full-on sobbing not caring that he could hear me now.

I was sitting on the ground beside the door, trying hard to stop the tears but I couldn’t. I was annoyed at myself for ruining Dimitri’s happy mood but I was just so scared.

I had absolutely no idea what was happening in my dream but I knew Dimitri and I would never go as far as hating each other unless something really bad had happened between us. I was also locked up somewhere and that scared the crap out of me. Everything about that dream disturbed me and I just wanted things to be okay with Dimitri and I, forever.

“Isabella, please, I’m getting really impatient and I really don’t want to break this door down.” He spoke firmly before softening his tone. “Did I do something wrong baby? I understand if you want me to leave you alone but please give me some sort of indication that you’re okay. I’m really worried.”

“I’m fine.” I spoke but my voice clearly indicated the opposite.

“No you aren’t Isabella.” He immediately spoke and I couldn’t help but sob. “Izzie baby, please tell me what to do. I don’t like knowing something’s upsetting you.”

I really didn’t want to tell Dimitri and ruin his good mood but I didn’t know what to tell him if I couldn’t say the truth. I decided I’d figure that out later as I opened the door and ran into his arms. He instantly wound his arms around me, holding me tight. I cried into his chest and he quietly held me, letting me let out my tears.

He gently ran his fingers through my hair and down my back as I sobbed. “Don’t cry Izzie. It hurts me to see you so upset like this.” He said and I looked up at him and met his concern-filled eyes. He leaned down and kissed the tears on my cheeks, kissing them away.

“I’m fine.” I whispered as I rest my head against his chest, closing my eyes as I let his warmth soothe me. He didn’t say anything as he gently ran his hands up and down my back.

I soon pulled away from him and whispered “I’m fine” again. Dimitri frowned at me but didn’t say anything. He probably decided it was better to not ask me what was upsetting me and let me forget about it for a moment.

“Did you have breakfast?” I asked him to change the subject and he shook his head, causing my eyes to widen. “You haven’t had breakfast yet?” I exclaimed noting that it was almost lunchtime.

“I don’t typically have breakfast.” He spoke and I noticed he was watching me closely.

“Why not?” I demanded, placing my hands on my hips. “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Just because you think you’re the high and mighty Demon King, doesn’t give you the excuse to skip breakfast!” I exclaimed angrily and he watched me in surprise before raising both his hands up in surrender. “Now tell me what you want to eat.”

I noticed a smirk cross his face and I rolled my eyes knowing exactly what he was thinking. “Well babe, I think you already know the answer to that.” He winked and I rolled my eyes again, making my way into the kitchen.

“We had pancakes today, if you want I can make you some. Or do you want something else?” I asked as I felt him walk up behind me, wrapping his arms around my waist.

“I think I’d like you.” He whispered before nibbling on my earlobe. I opened my mouth to respond, but before I could, he spun me around so I was facing him. “But more than that, I want you to talk to me. Please talk to me Izzie.” He spoke with the concern etched onto his face again and I knew he wanted to me tell him why I was upset.

“It’s not important, Dimitri.” I said as I tried to pull away out of his arms, but he wouldn’t have any of it.

“It’s important to me, Izzie!” He exclaimed, pulling me close to him. I gave him a small smile before laying my head on his chest. “You care too much about me Dimitri.” I spoke softly as I played with the collar of his shirt.

“I care too much? I don’t think I care enough Izzie! You wouldn’t be crying or hiding things from me like you are right now if I cared enough. Do you not trust me Izzie?” He exclaimed and I pulled away, looking up at him. He looked concerned and angry and upset, all at the same time.

“I’m just being overly sensitive Dimitri. It’s nothing. And it has nothing to do with trust, of course I trust you! I trust you more than anything!” I spoke and he looked like he didn’t believe me and that he wasn’t going to let this go anytime soon.

“If you trust me, then tell me. I care about you Izzie and I want to make sure you’re okay. Everything was fine and then suddenly you got up and ran, and then you started crying while locking yourself up in the bathroom. That is not ‘nothing’!” He exclaimed and I stayed quiet not saying anything. I felt angry now. Why couldn’t he just leave it alone? I didn’t want to tell him and he should respect that, shouldn’t he?

“Isabella.” He said my name in a tight voice, but I didn’t respond to him again. “Isabella!”

“I had a nightmare okay! I had a nightmare and I don’t want to talk about it. Why don’t you understand?” I exclaimed in defeat as I felt tears slide down my face. He froze and I could see the look of fear and worry on his face. He knew, just as well as I did, what those dreams meant. He knew they would come true. We both knew.

And there was not one thing we could do about it.

A few weeks had passed and my dad had really warmed up to Dimitri. In fact, my dad got pretty excited when Dimitri came over, even though he’d never admit it. He was interested in the way politics worked in Rovana and Dimitri of course loved any chance he could get to talk about his Kingdom. You could tell just how much he loved his Kingdom and how passionate he was about protecting Rovana and keeping his Kingdom together.

My dad and Dimitri would talk for hours at a time discussing politics, comparing Earth and Rovana, teaching each other the different ways of the both worlds. I could tell my dad was really warming up to Dimitri and seeing him for the person he truly was, and not the scary Demon King that Earth had feared for so long.

It had come to the point that my Dad didn’t care if I spent time alone with Dimitri anymore. It was like he suddenly trusted him and I couldn’t blame him for trusting Dimitri so fast. Dimitri was an honourable man, and honestly who wouldn’t love him as soon as they got to truly know him.

“Why don’t you invite Dimitri anymore for dinner?” My dad asked me while I sat in my room, cramming for my exams. I quirked my eyebrows in amusement before removing my glasses.

“Why? So you can hog him to yourself?” I teased and my dad shook his head in amusement.

“Actually I wanted to discuss a theory with him that I had about the way Rovana-”

“Oh my god Dad, you’re obsessed with Rovana! Honestly just go live there!” I exclaimed in amusement, cutting off his words, causing him to chuckle. “But I did ask him to come, I’ve been asking him to come for the past week, but he’s so busy with Rovana that I haven’t seen him for a whole week! And I guess I’ve been busy with school as well so it worked out for both of us. But it must be hard for him to keep coming back and forth from Rovana to Earth and back again, every single day. I mean he does have a whole Kingdom to look after.”

“That’s true, but I don’t want him choosing his Kingdom over you all the time.” My dad spoke in a stern voice. “Make sure he makes effort to see you too.”

“Don’t worry Dad, Dimitri cares a lot about me.” I said with a small smile and my Dad smiled back.

“I know he does.” He said before leaving me to continue studying for my exam tomorrow morning. It was my last one and I was so glad I’d finally be done with high school. I then just had my graduation left and I was so excited for it. I went shopping with Nina and we both bought our graduation dresses together.

Dimitri said he’d be busy for the next week or so but he promised he’d make it to my graduation. I wanted my graduation day to come faster because I knew I wouldn’t see Dimitri until then.

~The next day~

I had just finished my exams and I was so relieved as the stress melted off my skin. I could finally relax and relish in the next two months of freedom before University started.

I was emptying out my locker and once I was done, I grabbed my bag and almost bumped into someone. I let out a small gasp and looked up to find Tyler, the new guy. “Sorry, didn’t mean to scare you.” He said with a small chuckle and I let out a little laugh, pulling my bag up over my shoulder.

“It’s okay, I just didn’t expect anyone to be standing right behind me.” I said as we both started walking out the school. We started talking about our exams before a thought came into mind.

“Didn’t you just recently move here?” I asked and he nodded his head, and I could tell he wasn’t sure where I was going with this. “Why would you move right at the end of the school year? It must be hard to make such a sudden move, right when we’re graduating.” I said, looking up to him for an answer.

He gave me a small smile before he continued. “We had to move because of my Dad’s work so I kind of had no choice. The classes here aren’t any different from my old school so the schoolwork wasn’t hard to adjust to and besides, school was almost over so I only really had to worry about exams. And they went well, so it worked out better than I’d hoped.” He explained as we made it outside. “Do you want to go out for some ice cream or something? It’s really hot outside and I think we deserve a treat after all that stress, don’t you think?” He asked and the thought of eating some ice cream sounded so good at the moment.

“I don’t think I have anything going on at the moment, so why not?” I said with a smile and he grinned before directing me towards his car. He opened the passenger door for me to get into and I did, thanking him.

Tyler was actually a really nice, easygoing guy and if I wasn’t with Dimitri, I know I probably would be going crazy over him. But no one could ever beat my Dimitri.

****

It was finally my graduation day and I was so excited to finally be leaving high school behind. I felt kind of sad but really excited, and a little bit afraid of the future at the same time. But I knew that life would work out just fine for me, if I just let it play out the way it was supposed to. I’d gone through so much in Rovana, I knew I could get over anything life decided to throw at me now.

Nina was at my house and we were both getting ready together. “I can’t believe this is actually happening!” She exclaimed and I grinned back at her. Nina and I have been waiting for this day for so long. We entered high school as best friends and we were graduating together as well. “Me neither but I’m really excited!” I responded as I curled my hair. “I’m also excited because I finally get to see Dimitri. Can you believe it’s been a whole two weeks since I last saw him? I swear as soon as I see him, I’m jumping him. I don’t care if we’re in public.” I said causing Nina to laugh at me.

“Trust me, I can tell how eager you are to see him again!” She said as she straightened her hair. “I bet you won’t be leaving your bed for quite a while.” She winked causing me to blush. I still felt really shy discussing sex with anyone, even though I’ve done so much with Dimitri. Sometimes I found it crazy how far I’d gone with him, especially since I thought I’d remain a virgin until after I got married.

I could practically feel his hands roaming my body and the thought of him touching me, kissing me so scandalously, the things he could do to me, the way he could make me feel, was turning me on badly and I wouldn’t be surprised if the panties I was wearing were soaking. I know Dimitri would get really cocky if he found out the effect he still had on me, despite being miles and miles away.

“Your silence tells me that’s exactly what’s going to happen.” Nina said winking causing me to give her a small embarrassed glare.

****

We were at the graduation ceremony and I was standing behind the curtains, in line with everyone, awaiting my turn before I could walk across the stage. I still hadn’t seen Dimitri anywhere. He was supposed to come an hour ago but he hadn’t. Soon it was my turn to walk across the podium to receive my diploma and awards, and as I looked out at the crowd, I saw my parents taking pictures of me, so I smiled. But I didn’t see Dimitri anywhere.

I hadn’t seen him for a whole two weeks and he didn’t even bother showing up to my graduation, when he promised me he would. I didn’t hold that against him because who knows, something could have happened and he was late. He was really busy and had a lot of responsibility on his shoulders with a whole Kingdom on his hands. I was a bit worried in case something horrible happened.

After the ceremony, we all went out and started taking pictures together and eating graduation cake. “Hey, can I get a picture with you?” I heard a male voice say from behind me and I got excited before realizing it was not Dimitri. It was Tyler.

“Of course.” I spoke smiling as I went to stand beside him. He handed Nina his phone and asked her to take a picture of us. I felt his arm snake around my waist as he pulled me close. I tensed not expecting him to pull me somclose but then relaxed as Nina told us to smile. She took a few pictures of us before handing Tyler his phone back. “Thanks!” He said to her before Nina walked back to her parents. I noticed her parents conversing happily with mine and smiled, happy that everyone was enjoying themselves.

I felt a light touch on my shoulder and turned around to look back at Tyler. “You look beautiful.” He spoke softly and my eyes widened a bit at his words.

“Oh, uh thank you.” I let out a small awkward laugh causing him to smile even wider. I was so awkward when it came to people complimenting me. He then asked if he’d like me to join him and some other people for a graduation dinner and since I didn’t think I was going to see Dimitri tonight, I said yes.

That night, I had a great time at the dinner. He invited Nina, Callie and Sally as well and we all had a pretty great time. Callie and Sally of course wouldn’t stop flirting with him, even though they both had boyfriends. And every chance they got, they had to insult me in some way and embarrass me in front of everyone. Sometimes I wondered how and why I ever became friends with them. They weren’t my friends, they just liked to make me suffer. They never wanted anything good for me. The only true friend I had was Nina and I loved her very much. She was always there for me, always defending me.

Even now at the dinner she defended me when Sally and Callie had rude things to say. Tyler defended me as well and at one point he got pretty angry at Sally. I couldn’t help but smile and later I thanked him for standing up to me. “Anything for you,” He’d said.

Nina had nudged me throughout the night and told me that she thinks Tyler may be really into me. “You need to tell him you have a boyfriend, otherwise you’re just leading him on.” She said and I sighed. I couldn’t just tell him I was dating the Demon King. Dimitri and I hadn’t discussed if we’d tell everyone yet. “Speaking of your boyfriend, where the hell is he? Didn’t he promise he’d be here?” She asked and I looked down at my lap with a frown.

“He didn’t show up. He probably forgot.” I spoke quietly and I guess Nina could hear the upset tone in my voice as she gave me a small hug from the side.

“I’m sure he has a perfectly good reason. Dimitri wouldn’t just forget, he knows how important graduating is to you. And he really cares about you and you know that!” Nina said causing me to smile. She was right, Dimitri wouldn’t miss today unless he did have a perfectly good reason. I’d call him when I got home and find out the real reason.

Later that night, I went home and as soon as I got into my room, I called him. I called him a few times but he wouldn’t pick up. I was worried now that something had happened to him so I decided to give Devon a call.

“What up? Missing me already? Dimitri won’t be happy to hear that his girl is trying to sex me up.” He responded in his teasing voice but I was too worried about Dimitri at the moment to respond to his playful jabs.

“Devon, is everything okay with Dimitri? I haven’t heard from him in two weeks and I’m kind of worried!” I exclaimed, but Devon seemed to be in a playful mood so I assumed things were fine.

“Uh, yeah he should be. Probably suffering from blue balls as usual but fine otherwise. I’ll get someone to go check on him for you and you can talk to him yourself.” Devon spoke and I breathed out a thank you. I heard Devon talking to someone, telling them to get this phone call to Dimitri.

A few minutes later I heard an unfamiliar male voice say, “There’s a phone call for you.” And just then I heard a female voice.

“Who is it Dimitri? Make it quick, I really want to spend time with you.” The flirtatious voice came through the phone and I could feel something hot surge inside me. “I’ve been waiting all day to be alone with you.” She spoke seductively and I clenched my hands into tight fists.

“Can’t you see I’m busy right now?” Dimitri’s angry voice came through the phone. He wasn’t talking to me but to the person handing him the phone.

“I’m so sorry your Highness.” The male voice said before ending the call. And I just stared down at my phone in shock. I couldn’t believe what just happened.

I hadn’t seen Dimitri in two whole weeks and he promised he’d be there for my graduation, but he never showed up. And then he wouldn’t pick up any of my phone calls because he’s with some girl that isn’t me. He got mad for being interrupted too. I couldn’t believe it. He’s doing god knows what with this other girl.

I felt tears spring to my eyes and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. Was he cheating on me? How long has this been going on for? I felt so hurt and everything my dad had told me came rushing back to me.

“He’s only going to hurt you.” My dad had said and I hadn’t believed him. I knew Dimitri would never hurt me, but if that was the case, then why’d it hurt so goddamn much right now?

I needed to talk to Dimitri myself. I needed to find out the truth before jumping to conclusions. I couldn’t think the worse of him just yet.
