Love In The Darkness

Can you actually fall in love with a mafia heir that will soon marry you if you find out his darkest secret in your darkest hour?

***Ashreigh was the only one from the Leighton family who managed to survive the major assassination in their manor. Her parents' car burned into ashes with them, she was showered with a shot, and the mansion wrecked down like a fallen glass of water that killed a lot of servants.

Her tragedy gave out a new beginning. A new life that will soon start to be written in her book of life.


12. Darkness Eleven: Awkward

It was morning then.

My eyes wide open and I didn't get any chances of sleeping. Why? Because I was thinking, thinking about what happened last night. What El told me last night.

My head was pounding and it felt almost as though anytime of that night, I might have a nightmare of him. I was a bit in shock, I don't know what to do, and I felt like losing the weight to face him soon. How regretful it felt when I went out of my room wearing something like that and allowing a man see me is all the more shame I could get. And besides, he is still a stranger to me. I don't know him that much to know how he thinks entirely unlike Ed who already showed me a part of his attitude.

But despite that fear I stood firm, did my daily routine before going to school but as I was on my way towards the door I hesitated. I can't face El! I'm not even good with managing this new 'El effect' planted on me and if I pretend like nothing happened, I think I wouldn't be able to hold myself back and run away.

I stretched my hand towards the door and swallowed hardly. I should attend school now. I must. And that's what I did. I opened my room door and started making my way towards the staircase still holding myself from the incoming embarrassment that might or will come once I'm facing that dining room and probably swallow my entire being. But when I got there, there was no trace of that man and I felt a little bit relief.

I sat on my usual chair finding that perverted Ed was just staring at me with his usual grin. I simply gave a glare back giving him my warning glare to lay off and he didn't. He was like telling me that 'make me if you can'. Then I replied back with my 'go die' look before putting my eyes on the plate that already had the pancake in it so I stood up and went towards the kitchen to get some milk, but to my shock, the person I didn't want to see came out of there on his usual black outfit but atop was something new about him... he was wearing a plain navy blue apron that if I didn't composed myself any second, I could've had my mouth dropped in disbelief.

"Oh, you're awake." He said, stating the obvious as I could see.

I nodded, passed by him and made my way towards the kitchen without a word. Why is he still here? And he was following me for pete's sake! How am I suppose to concentrate if he's watching?

"Do you need something?" he asked.

I simply pulled the fridge when I was there and grabbed the pitcher of milk and faced the counter where the glass were placed. But finding him still around my radar I looked at him and opened my mouth to speak. "I'll be fine." I paused and contemplated my mind not to let myself stutter. "Just go ahead and start your breakfast." then I began to pour the milk. And the problem is he remained staring dumbly.

"Are you sure?" And his magical question of reassurance quite got me. But I pretended that I was. I'm not even sure why he have to ask that. It's not as if he have to care about my well being that much.

I turned to him and forced out a smile. "Yes. I'm super." I said and continued pouring my milk trying as hard as I can not to tremble. And when I succeeded, my next problem is how am I going to hold the glass of milk without shaking.

"Let's go." he even said waiting for me.


Why does he have to torture me this way? I can't even understand what he's implying. I'm not comfortable, can't he feel that? After he saw me almost like naked, he'd act as if we're closely related. "Yeah. Go on ahead. I'll... try to li-- I mean try to remember what else I've forgot to get here... in the kitchen." I reasoned out.

"Well if you say so..." and I heard him beginning to walk out of the kitchen and I began to think what else should I bring to validate the reason that I let him go on first so I looked around looking for something reasonable. I opened the fridge again to return the pitcher of milk and decided to give up and return to my own sit as the two dangerous people in this house laid an eye on me.

"So, what did you forget?" Ed was the one who asked after being all quiet this morning.

"I already forgot." I replied monotonously and began to eat putting all my focus on the food and ignored the two who also began to eat. Then after that silent breakfast, I stood up in preparation of going to school and to my  distaste, El was already beside me, as if there wasn't a side of him that was like a play boy last night, as if he didn't see my underwear last night.

"I'll take you to school." he said as if demanding it.

"Ah... ummm... I think I'll..." I paused thinking of a way to decline his offer. He might use that motorbike again and I might even get myself into an awkwardly long embarrassing ride with him. Then I saw Ed yawning as he made his way out of the door playing a chain that looked almost likely connecting to a car key.

"What is it?" El asked after I didn't continued my response.

"I... I think it's better if I'd try going with Ed sometimes!" I said. That made El raised an eyebrow and Ed stopped on his track and looked at me with a questionable and unexpected look. "So you know, we could all know each other better!" I even used hand gestures to reason out as I glanced at him then to Ed.

And with that reasoning, I just received a smirk from Ed and pulled my hand. "Heard her bro. Guess she has a point." he said and winked at me. He must've noticed how I looked troubled on reasoning out to El that I almost sounded like I was crying. While El on the other hand just watched as his brother took me into a car just parked in front of the fountain. He opened the passenger seat for me and lead me with a hand gesture. "After you, princess." he said and so I entered and he closed the door beside me.

When I turned to look at El back, he just seem to be standing there, staring at me even though the car was tinted black and surely, it was impossible for him to even find where I was so he must've been looking straight to a random space as the car engine starts and we began to move away losing sight of that man who simply didn't even made a step.
