“Then let’s go.” Tony replied.
“Let me have you.” He said.
Alcohol+Gigi = ‘succumb to everything’ Gigi.
Tony scooted me in his arms and we entered into his Chambers. He walked me past the living room, into the bedroom and shoved me over the bed.
With a swift movement he landed over me and kissed me along my jawline. He removed his t-shirt from over his head and slid down his pants.
He reached for my top and easily pulled it out.
“I don’t think we should do this, Tony.” I said. No matter whether it’s fake or not, but I’m engaged and soon to get married. This is overboard.
And I’m thinking this because certainly the effect of alcohol is abating.
“Why?” Tony said biting my earlobe. I gasped at his action.
“I’m marrying him.” I reminded him.
“No you’re not.”
“My marriage is two days from now, Tony.”
Tony punched the wall behind me. “No, you’re not.” He said.
I placed my hand over his jaw.
“I love you.” I told him.
Tony let out a hopeless laugh. “What would that change?”
“I love you.” I said and hugged him.
“You should go away now.” He said.
“Go now or I won’t follow what you demanded.” He said.
I pushed myself out of the bed, wore my top and ran back to Wyatt’s Chamber.
Is he still mad at me? Should go in?
Finally deciding, I pushed past the doors and entered the bedroom.
The room is clean and just how it was earlier. Wyatt is seated on the floor across the wall.
I slid down beside him. I don’t wanna piss him off now, I don’t wanna make him cancel our marriage.
“I’m sorry.” Wyatt whispered.
I took in his figure. His eyes are blood shot and his knuckles are busted. Oh my God, there are tiny pieces of glass shining over his knuckles.
I stood up quickly pulling out the first aid box.
I took Wyatt’s injured hand in mine.
I started pulling out the glass particles.
“How did this happen?” I asked him.
“I punched the mirror.” He said.
I looked across the room for mirror and found it nowhere. He must’ve thrown it away.
I bandaged him, even though I knew that the wound would heal in a matter of hours.
“Please don’t leave me, Gigi. Even if I tell you to.” He said.
I froze on my place. No Wyatt, please don’t. My heart ached every time he said something like this. No matter how much an evil he is but he loves me and I’m hurting him. I can’t do this anymore.
I placed the first aid box on it’s place and sat on the bed not answering his question while Wyatt remained seated on the ground.
Next morning I decided to plan things out with Shivani.
“When’s the marriage?” Shivani asked.
“The day after tomorrow.” I replied.
I moved towards the perimeter of the terrace. “We’ve to execute our plan on the day of our marriage. Are we ready?” I asked her.
“Yes, we are.” She replied.
The marriage was near and we had to be ready.
After our short discussion I walked back to Tony’s Chamber.
He was seated on the couch, reading some documents.
I sat beside him. “I can’t do this anymore Tony.” I told him.
“What?” He asked coldly, surely due to what happened last night.
“I love you. I can’t be with Wyatt when he’s behaving so good to me. He always has but… but I don’t want to realise how much he loves me. The guilt is consuming me completely.”
“Are you in love with him?” He asked.
“No! I love you! I don’t… well I don’t love him.”
Tony sighed. “You’re going to marry him the day after tomorrow.”
“I know. I just want all this to pass way as soon as it can.”
Tony took my hand in his and kissed it.
“Yesterday he was sitting down the whole night. I was.. I was almost falling for him.”
Tony glared at me.
“I don’t wanna lie.” I told him.
“Then let me make you fall for me.” He pulled me over his lap.
I could feel him underneath me, the heat he gave out.
He kissed my neck.
“I love you Gigi. It pains me every time you leave me and go to him.” He said and kissed my earlobe.
“Stop it.” I said.
“The kissing?” He asked.
“No, the speaking. Don’t make me feel anymore guilty.”
“Ok.” He whispered and kissed my cheek.
“Damn it!” I yelled and crashed my lips with his.
The castle could be no more alive as the arrangements were being made for the big day ahead.
My marriage. The mere thought sent shivers down my spine. The shivers of anxiety and guilt.
“I’m not gonna come out of my chamber from now on, even though you force me to.” Tony said from beside me as we took a tour of the castle.
It really had been a bad idea after all.
“Shouldn’t we spend some quality time?” I asked batting my eyelashes.
The inside of the castle was being beautified by the lights (series), at the top the jhoomar was being lit and decorated by bands of red and white flowers running down.
Red curtains and white and red flowers we’re covering the interior.
The castle never looked so lit, so contradicting to the dark plans of the vampire king. My husband-to-be.
As we moved outside the palace my eyes widened with the mesmerizing setting. The platform followed the white and red scheme too. The platform being white, elaborated by red flowers.
“Isn’t this too much red and glitter?” Tony asked.
“Yeah, unlike of any normal wedding.” I replied, my voice coming out breathless.
I turned to see that the grand palace was covered by series of lights. Though they were switched off as the morning light wouldn’t bring the best out of them.
Speaking of morning light, it was five in the morning. Wyatt had probably started the work early so that he could finish almost half of the arrangements before the sunlight burnt their skin.
“You shouldn’t be watching all this, babe.” Wyatt’s voice made me jump and turned around to face him.
“I want you to see the entire thing tomorrow night at the occasion of our wedding.” He said.
“Umm.. ok. ” I replied nervously.
“Now Tony, would you help them set the aisle please? ” Wyatt turned towards Tony
He frowned but nodded and left for the work assigned to him.
“Come, I wanna show you something.” Wyatt placed his hand on the small of my back and led me inside the castle.
We took the elevator to the King’s Chamber.
Wyatt pushed the door open and we moved towards the closet.
“What?” I asked him.
He pushed the closet open while I stared inside with wide eyes.
A beautiful red lehenga seated in the middle of the closet. I rushed towards the dress and touched it, tracing the beautiful carvings over it.
Wyatt watched me with awkward eyes, his cheeks were flushed.
“Do you like it?” He asked nervously. He bit his lower lip between his teeth.
Don’t you dare do that!
“I… I love it!” I stammered.
Yes, all the arrangements, all the glitter, all the lights and a lot of red wasn’t different than a wedding, it was an Indian wedding.
How much had he planned for this? Wyatt wanted to make me happy and he had by this extraordinary gift. But do I deserve it?
No matter how many dark plans he had for the world outside, did he ever hurt me? Does that give me right to cheat with him?
I was finding it hard to keep all this going on, each time I stared into Wyatt’s eyes, my heart burnt.
But I had never found it so hard. Never thought that in a moment he could make my like for him turn into…love.
“Why are you crying?” Wyatt asked.
Oh. I hadn’t known the tears were sliding down my eyes.
I wiped my eyes. Wyatt came closer to me, staring at the floor. I opened my arms and engulfed him into a hug.
“I’m sorry.” I said. Sorry? Why did I say that? He’ll make me explain.
“Me too, I was really rude to you yesterday.” He whispered into my neck.
I pulled back and we stood there in awkward silence. “So, I should get going.” Wyatt said.
“Oh yeah.” I replied.
Soon Wyatt left the chamber and I soaked in the look of the dress once again.
Why can’t this be easy? Why Wyatt can’t just not care for me so much? Why can’t I just hate him?
I haven’t been this vulnerable my entire life, not even with Steve.
I walked down to the bedroom and slumped down on the bed.
What should I do? Should I tell Tony about this? Will he get mad at me? Of course he will.
I can’t hide this from him. I had kept enough secrets, I have hurt him enough and now by keeping this from him, I’m not going to move backwards in our relationship.
And I’ve to do it now. For if I over think, I surely will decide otherwise.
I stood up from the place and rushed to Tony’s Chamber.
I pushed the door open to find the place empty. Wyatt had assigned him with work, he may not have returned.
I sighed. Was it a sigh of relief of not finding him or disappointment, I couldn’t tell.
I sat on the couch deciding to wait for his return.
I don’t know when my eyes closed and I entered the Gigi world…
“How.. how could you?!” Tony yelled at me.
Tears slid down my eyes, staining my cheek. “Tony.. I didn’t do it intentionally, I swear. I didn’t want to hurt you.” I talked in between my sobs.
“You.. you know how I feel about this! And now? Now you are in love with him?! For God’s sake Gigi, what kind of a person are you?”
“I know this is terrible. But please, let me explain.” I moved towards him.
“No, stop! Don’t come near me. I.. I hate, f***k that!” He said and left, leaving me alone in my tears.
“Gigi?” Tony’s voice brought me back to the present.
