Amelia woke up, stretching out her hands. “Oh my goodness…today is going to be a great day” She muttered, stretching out. “Good morning my lady” Maya greeted with a smile.
“Good morning Maya”
“How are you feeling? The king was here” she said
“The king?” She questioned, staring at her.
“Yeahhh….yeah he was asking about your health and he wants to see you in his room…i guess it’s another discussion” She said with a smile. Amelia looked at her and sighed.
“Silly! I thought he was bothered about my health but No! What else does he want this morning” She thought.
“My lady ….i think the king is been a little soft on you. He takes good care of you..you know” Maya said, she looked at her and smiled.
“Of course he takes good care of what he use every night” She said in her mind and walked into the bathroom, she turned on the shower the water was warm, some minutes later she was done. She walked out of the bathroom with a towel around her body. Maya has already set her her wears on the bed, she dried up her body and applied the body lotion which has a sweet fragrance. She left for his room, she arrived his door stepped the guards made way for her. She entered and saw him. He was just coming out of the bathroom, he had a towel on his waist the water couldn’t stop dropping from his hair, her eyes met with his chest and his abs.
“Oh my goodness. This man is freaking cute and hot” She thought, she quickly look away immediately he looks at her directions.
“Stop drooling princess” He said with a smirk on his face. She wanted to reply him but she didn’t. She stood there like a statue. Omega was in the room when she came in but she didn’t notice his presence because she was lost staring at him. He helped him with his royal wear.
“You can leave now” The king said with a smile, he nods and bow his head with a smile and left. Amelia kept looking at them, she smiled at him as he walked out of the king’s room. She looked at the king and he return his look on her, she glanced at the floor and bed.
“How are you feeling this morning?” Henderson said with a little smile.
“I’m fine my lord” She replied without looking at him.
“Let’s go downstairs for breakfast” Henderson said.
“What? Pardon!” She muttered and looked at him, she thought he wanted to have séx with her. He grabbed her right hand, they walked out of his room, she kept looking at him and wondered what’s going on.
“Stop looking at me like that. you are scaring me with that look” He said, calmly she quickly looked at her front. They arrived at the dinning room, Henderson took a seat Amelia did the same. This is the first time she us sitting here with the king, it’s also her second time here. It was like heaven, she remembered how she use to sit with her parents and her brother but they are no more. Suddenly Saanvi walked in and scared at Amelia disgustingly and rolled her eyes, their eyes met saanvi looked away in anger and sat down.
“Good morning my lord…” Saanvi greeted sweetly to make Amelia feel jealous.
“Good morning” He replied without looking at her, saanvi wanted to say something but she was interrupted by the maids, who were dishing out the food. She was angry but tried to be calm.
Omega left the palace, he want in search of a woman he who was leaving in the palace, he trace her house she was living in a small village. Though he has met her twice, he arrived at her house. He opened the door and stepped down from his car. He walked to her door step and knocked on the door.
“Who is it?”
“Oh my son. Am coming” She muttered and rushed to open the door. She opened the door and he smiled on seeing, she looked like his mother. But he doesn’t know if she is his mom. He lost his mom when Grayson was ruling.
“Please come inside son” She said with a smile, he entered. “Please sit” she said, pointing at the wooden chair, he looked at the wooden chair and smile, he sat down, comfortably.
“What would you like to eat?” She asked, smiling.
“I’m good, please don’t stress yourself” He said with a smile.
“Alright if you say so”
“Ma’am i want to know everything that happened in the palace. The princess is suffering”
“Omega!” She called and sighed, he looked at her. “I’ve told you all you need to know” she added.
“Ma’am, i know. But i believe that there’s more. Something is missing. Her brother Richard. Is he really her brother” Omega said.
“He is not her brother. It’s a story for another day” She said and stood up, Omega stood up and wondering if what he said got her angry.
“Am sorry ma’am, i didn’t mean to get you angry” He said, apologetically.
“No! Am not mad at you”
“Alright i was thinking if you would come with me to the city” Omega said.
“Son i know that you’re a good man, but i can’t go to the city”
“Why? What if the king wants to see you?”
“I will come and answer him. He is a good man too not like that heartless Grayson he chase me out of the palace” She said. He sighed softly.
“Alright, I will be here tomorrow” Omega said.
“I hope you will be at home” He said, looking at her.
“Yes. Am always at home” She said with a smile. He nods and went to his car, he bought a lot of stuff for her, on his way to her house he brought them out his car and dropped them in her house, she was very happy and blessed him, he left with his car. She thought about her life. She never thought that help would come some day.
They were done eating, Amelia left the dinning. Saanvi and the king were the only ones in the sitting room. Saanvi did everything to get his attention. He was busy with his phone. She moved close to him and touched his arm to his chest, he looked at her. She flashed him a smile.
“You have been giving attitude, these days. You don’t talk to me. Am sorry about the other time” She said, calmly.
“I’m very busy right now. And am not mad at you anymore. I shouldn’t have shouted on you” He said without using the word sorry. He stood up and left. Saanvi angrily smashed the glass cup on the floor.
“Amelia! Daughter of Grayson. Daughter of a traitor. How dare you? I warned you but you don’t want to listen. I won’t spare you. I will make sure you regret ever coming to this palace” saanvi said and left in anger. The maid walked in and cleaned up the mess.
The king walked to Amelia’s bedroom, she was talking with her maid, she didn’t notice when he opened the door and walk in, while laughing Maya turned to the door and saw him standing by the door, she stopped laughing and looked at Amelia, she returned her look on her and then looked at the door, Maya stood up and greeted him. He replied with a smile. He looked at Amelia. ” She is beautiful” His mind said. He smiled at Amelia.
“You may leave” The king said to Maya. She bow her head and smiled at Amelia before leaving. He walked close to her and sat beside her, she was on her bed. He touched her thigh. “Your Highness!” She called and looked at him and the door. He scoffed, “let’s go to the garden” He muttered.
“Huh! Garden” She questioned, she can’t say no to him and he doesn’t take no as an answer. She stood up, they walked out of the room together, they headed to the garden. He had his hands behind his back. They were many flowers in the garden, she cut the flower. She saw a butterfly and began to chase it. Henderson sat down on the wooden bench. He watched her as she smiled and laughed alone. He remembered his childhood days and everything that happened at the palace. He stood up and left. Amelia turned around, he wasn’t there, she became sad and walked away with flower. She walked to her bedroom, she wanted to give the flower to him.
“One minute his happy. The other minute he is sad” She thought and looked away.
“I thought he was trying to make happy, i know i don’t deserve it, but…. He should stop making me feel this way” she said to herself.
When he return to the garden, she wasn’t there. He didn’t mean to leave her. He only wants to clear his head and mind. He walked to her room, she was back facing him, she was talking to herself. He saw the flower on the floor, he picked it up and walk close to her. She looked up and saw him, she wiped her tears. He squat down and gave her the flower.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to leave you alone” He said.
What did he just say?
