Chapter: 24


Her tight fitted red dress clung to her body showing off her curves, my eyes followed her as she circled me, soft humming sounds left her pale lips as she stopped immediately. "What are you doing in Xanolia?" She asked sternly.

Her sharp teeth stuck out as she grinned at me waiting for an answer, instead I focused on the freezing air which surrounded my still wet body. She gawked at me as my body trembled, "are you afraid little Earthling?" She shouted.

Yeah right…
I stood there not saying a word yet she wrapped her long fingernails around my neck and squeezed tightly, "you aren't afraid now but you should be little Earthling" she screeched into my face.

"Bring the prisoner down" he yelled, almost causing my heart to fail.

Two guards shoved him closer towards us, the moment he saw me his eyes *lite* up and a smile formed on his face. He stood beside the handsome stranger and my heart pounded rapidly in my chest, my eyes shot from Liam to him then back to Lima who looked like a complete mess.
