Chapter 68

I couldn’t sleep all night, scared that he didn’t love me anymore. I couldn’t lose him, I’d done so much for him and if he was cheating on me with someone else, I knew I’d be absolutely crushed. I was angry and upset at the same time and I just wanted to cry and cry. But I knew I couldn’t jump to conclusions without confronting him.

But what else could he be doing with her? I haven’t seen him for so long and he missed my graduation when he promised he’d be there. But instead of being with me, he was with another girl doing who knows what. And the way she spoke, so seductively, so flirtatious and the way Dimitri got angry for being interrupted when he was with her.

Oh goodness, it hurt so much to think of that possibility. He didn’t even call me back. Didn’t he see I called him last night? But why would he call when he didn’t care about me, when he was too busy with some other girl?

I kept the phone with me the whole day, waiting for his call but nothing came and every hour that passed, I felt more and more crushed. Eventually the whole day went by and I still received nothing from him. I felt so broken that I couldn’t stop the tears anymore.

I climbed into the shower as soon as I heard my parents come up, not wanting to deal with them. Fortunately, they were leaving for a small business trip soon and they were dropping my siblings off to my grandparents house, leaving the house all to me. I kind of wished my siblings weren’t leaving so I could have someone keep me company and distract me from my broken heart, but I was just going to be left alone.

“We’re leaving Sweetie!” My Mom called from outside the bathroom door.

“Okay Mom, I love you!” I called back and she responded with a ‘love you too, be safe’. Once they left, I turned off the shower and stepped out, wrapping a towel around myself, tightening it around me. I stood in front of the mirror and noticed how puffy and red my eyes were from crying.

I just couldn’t stop the tears and I knew if Dimitri confirmed cheating on me, I’d be a bigger mess than I was right now. I didn’t even know for sure if he was cheating on me.

I usually blow-dried my hair but I wasn’t in the mood for anything, so I just left the bathroom. As soon as I got out, I noticed a shadow in front of my window. Someone was standing out on my balcony and my phone was ringing. I checked my phone and it was Dimitri. He had left a text as well, saying:

I’m outside in your balcony. Open the door for me babe ❤️

Seeing his text made thick tears spring to my eyes and just as soon as they came, they slipped down my face. He didn’t say anything about my graduation and there was no explanation as to why he couldn’t show up, or anything about the missed calls I left him.

I slowly went to my window and pulled the curtains back, seeing Dimitri standing their with his signature sexy smile. I noticed his eyes roam my body as he noticed I was standing in only a flimsy little towel and I noted the color of his eyes darken in lust.

Seeing him brought such immense pain as more tears slid down my face. Once he was done staring at my body, he brought his eyes up to meet mine probably wondering why I didn’t open the door yet. That’s when I noticed his eyes train onto the tears on my face, the puffiness and redness of my eyes and he frowned before a worried look came upon his face. This time he ran his eyes over my body in an almost frantic way checking for any injuries and when he looked up at me again, I noticed a possessive and protective look in his eyes.

“Open the door right now Isabella!” He demanded but I couldn’t. I didn’t want him to come near me because I knew he’d pull me into his arms and I’d give into him immediately, all rational thoughts flying out the window. But I knew I couldn’t talk to him like this, so I reached the door and unlocked it.

I then took a few steps back, away from the door as he came inside. He immediately rushed towards me but I quickly took steps back and away from him, holding my hand in a gesture telling him to stop. “Izzie baby, what’s wrong?” He asked me in the softest, most gentle voice ever, and I couldn’t help but start sobbing.

He started moving toward me again but I told him to stop. “What’s going on Izzie? You need to tell me what’s going on? Did something happen? Did someone hurt you?”

I wanted to reply saying, yes, you’re the one who hurt me. But I didn’t. “Dimitri,” I started off, saying his name slowly, “Have you been seeing someone else?” I asked, letting out a shaky breath.

“Seeing someone else? What do you mean?” He asked, a puzzled look on his face.

“Stop pretending like you don’t know what I’m saying! Have you been seeing someone behind my back? Have you been cheating on me?” I asked with fire in my voice.

“What the hell are you going on about, Isabella? Cheating on you? What the hell’s going on?” He demanded, the confusion on his face growing by the second.

“I didn’t see you for a whole two weeks Dimitri because you said you were busy with your duties as a King. I understood that, I know how many responsibilities you have with a whole Kingdom on your back. But you promised you’d show up for my graduation and you didn’t. It was yesterday by the way, in case you forgot.” I spoke and his eyes widened in surprise before guilt settled in. “And I wasn’t going to hold that against you because I know you have a lot to do and something probably came up. But then I called you at night and you wouldn’t pick up so I started worrying for you. I was scared something had happened so I called Devon. Devon then gave someone the phone to give to you, but you got mad for being interrupted. The entire time you were busy with some girl, and I heard what she said. She said she’d been waiting all day to be alone with you. And that’s when you got angry for being interrupted.” I finished as more tears slid down my face.

The look of pure guilt on his face, pierced my heart and absolutely tore me apart. He did cheat on me.

“Izzie baby,” He started softly but I shook my head, pointing towards the door to the balcony.

“Leave.” I breathed out as I started crying.

“No Izzie baby, listen to me please.” He spoke as he came and grabbed onto my arms. I pushed him away telling him to leave again, but he wouldn’t let go. He looked so worried but I didn’t care how much he regretted it or whatever, I wasn’t giving him any chances. I started fighting him, trying to get him away from me.

“Just leave Dimitri!” I exclaimed as I pushed him away from me, not wanting to listen to anything he was going to say.

He tried getting me to listen to whatever dumb excuse he had but when he realized I wasn’t going to stop fighting him, he grabbed me and pinned me against the wall, holding my arms up above my head, so I couldn’t fight him anymore.

I felt my towel slowly slip off my body and I closed my eyes, hating how exposed I was to him. I hated how strong he was and how he could keep me pinned against this wall for as long as he wanted. I hated how he so easily tore my heart into a billion pieces.

With one hand, he kept my arms pinned tight up above my head, and with his other hand, he grabbed my chin with a gentle touch, pulling my face up so I was completely face to face with him, forehead to forehead, nose to nose.

“Izzie, I didn’t cheat on you. Yes I was with a girl but I didn’t cheat on you. She was into me I will admit that, but I stopped any advances she made on me. In fact I told her I was with the most beautiful woman in this whole entire universe and that I love this woman like I’ve never loved another. I told her that I couldn’t be with her because I was already with you. And that’s the truth Izzie! Do you think I’d ever be able to cheat on the only woman I’ve ever loved? Do you think so low of me?” He asked as more tears slid down my face.

I wasn’t sure what to believe. Cheaters were good at lying and for all I knew Dimitri could be lying. And he was accusing me of thinking low of him, wasn’t that what cheaters did when they were trying to hide behind their unfaithful act?

“You could be lying for all I know! And why were you with her in the first place, when you promised me you would be there at my graduation? You didn’t even come for a little bit. You chose to spend time with this girl over me when I haven’t seen you in such a long time. That hurts a lot Dimitri!” I spoke, my voice shaking with so much pain.

“I’m so sorry Izzie, something came up. I didn’t mean to hurt you in any way, and trust me I feel absolutely horrible that I didn’t show up. Seeing you like this, knowing I caused you this pain, hurts me more than you’d know.” Dimitri spoke, sounding really upset as he stroked the side of my face, wiping my tears away. “And Izzie, I didn’t cheat on you, I didn’t do anything with her! I don’t really have a way to prove it so you’re just going to have to trust me.” He said and I closed my eyes processing his words.

“What came up? What was so important? Did it involve the girl you were with?” I fired questions, not letting him get away with it so easily.

“Yes it did involve the girl and I’m so sorry but I can’t tell you what came up, but please believe me Izzie, I didn’t do anything. I promise!” He exclaimed, his eyes wide in worry for my response.

“I can’t really believe your promises now can I, since you didn’t keep your last one either.” I spoke, a bitter tone in my voice and I could tell by the look on Dimitri’s face that he was starting to panic. “Please just leave Dimitri, and don’t come back until you can give me a proper answer, until you can tell me the truth.” I spoke as more tears slid down my face, down my neck, towards my bare chest.

“No, no, no, no, please Izzie! Please don’t do this! I won’t let you make our nightmares come true! I’m telling you the truth, I didn’t do anything. I love you and only you, Izzie! I’d never hurt you like that! You know I wouldn’t! You know exactly how much I love you!” He had my face in between his hands as he tried reasoning with me, but I was so hurt, I didn’t know what to believe.

“Please Dimitri, please leave.” I closed my eyes and spoke in an exhausted voice.

“No!′ He roared in anger and possession. “You’re mine Isabella, no one else’s, only mine forever and ever! And I’m not letting you go that fast!” He exclaimed as he picked me up and deposited me on my bed, immediately crawling on top of me. “I already almost lost you once and I’m not going to lose you now!” He exclaimed as he pinned my arms above my head again. I tried struggling out of his arms, but he wouldn’t let me go.

“Let me go!” I yelled at him but he shook his head as he buried his face in my neck, kissing me. As soon as his lips connected with my skin, it’s like everything left me, all my strength left as I succumbed to him.

“I want you to feel my love for you. I want you to feel the pain I’d feel if I lost you now.” He whispered as he pressed his lips against mine, slow yet hard. He poured everything into this kiss, all his passion, love, his fears, his sadness, his anger. It was like I could feel it all in one kiss, as he gave me his all. It was a slow kiss yet so passionate, I started crying again. “I’ll fight for you Isabella, I’ll forever fight for you if I have to! I’ll give you everything you want. Just ask it and it’s yours. Even if it’s near impossible for me to give to you, I’ll spend my entire life trying my hardest to do it anyways.” He spoke as he pressed little kisses on my lips, cheeks, jaw, down my neck, my collarbone. “What do you want me to do babe? I’ll stay with you tonight and tomorrow night and every single night if you want me to. Just please tell me what I have to do to keep you in my life forever! I’ll do anything!”

I stayed quiet as he sucked on my collarbone, pressing wet kisses everywhere. “Please forgive me for hurting you baby. Please forgive me for making you feel unimportant. I really wanted to be there for your graduation and if I could go back in time, I’d do anything to make sure I was there for you, no matter what came up! Just please forgive me, I’ll do anything for you!” He spoke, his voice shaking with fear. “And I never cheated on you, I’d never do that. I never want to lose you and I’m going absolutely insane right now because I don’t know if you’re going to forgive me or believe me or not.” I could hear pure terror in his voice and I knew he was speaking the truth. If he truly had cheated on me, it would mean that he didn’t care about me enough and he wouldn’t be willing to give me everything, like he was right now. He wouldn’t sound so scared of losing me if he had cheated on me.

“Please don’t leave me! I’ll go insane without you, the way my dad did when his wife left him! Please! I didn’t understand his pain then but I understand it now more than ever.” I could see tears in Dimitri’s eyes now and I wrapped my arms around him, pulling him close to me.

“I love you Dimitri. I’ve never loved someone as much as I love you. I’ve never given someone so much of myself to before you.” I spoke softly, as he rest his face against my chest. I stroked his hair softly as I continued talking. “So I was scared that the only person I love, the only person I trust, didn’t love me anymore. That I wasn’t good enough so you had to resort to finding someone better than me to fulfill your needs. But I trust you Dimitri! I’m sorry I doubted you and your love for me, I was just scared out of my mind. And I know you have a lot on your plate, what with your Kingdom and then you have me here on Earth and I know that might become a lot to juggle at the same time.” I spoke as I lightly tugged on his hair causing him to let out a sexy, low groan. “I’m sorry for jumping to conclusions. I told myself I wouldn’t but I did anyways.”

“No. Don’t apologize, if I was in your place, and I heard a guy’s voice when calling you, I know I would have let my jealousy get really far. To the point where I don’t think you’d want to know what I would do to him.” He spoke, as he tightened his hold against my waist, his face still resting against my chest. “But I’m serious, I feel horrible for hurting you. I’ll spend my entire life making up for it and I’ll do anything you want me to do.”

“Just never stop loving me.” I spoke softly as he gently ran his fingers up and down my side, down from my thigh all the way up to my chest, making tingling sensations to run through me.

“That will definitely never be a problem.” He spoke as he lifted his head up to flash me the brightest smile ever, before he blew me an air kiss. I giggled as he laid his head down on my chest again, closing his eyes. “You’re parents aren’t home are they?” He asked, opening his eyes again. “Cause I don’t think your Dad will be okay seeing me laying on top of his naked daughter.”

I laughed shaking my head. “No, they’re not home, so you’re safe.” I said as I entangled my fingers into his hair again. He let out little noises of appreciation as I played with his hair.

After a while he spoke again, “You know, with you laying naked like this at my disposal, I’d have ravaged you by now. But I kind of really am enjoying us cuddling like this. If Devon ever found out, he’d never stop making fun of me.” His words made me laugh again.

“Don’t worry, your secret’s safe with me.” I teased with a wide smile on my face as he pressed himself tighter against me, as if scared I’d leave him any second. I rest my cheek against the top of his head and lay with my eyes closed as well.

“Wait, one second.” He said as he pulled away from me. I watched as he removed his shirt, his pants and his boxers so he was completely naked too. “I want to feel your skin against mine.” He said before he laid down again. I started running my hands up and down his muscular back, loving the way his muscles felt underneath my touch.

Soon enough, Dimitri fell asleep and I pressed a small kiss on his shoulder. “Goodnight, my King.” I whispered before turning the lamp off beside me, throwing us into pitch darkness.
