My Little Prince

"wake up Lora" his voice sounds so good and comfy, that made nuzzle into my bed even more making me smile and sleep even deeper.
"wake up already !!" he was whisper-shouting in my ear.
I groaned in annoyance and opened my eyes slightly "What the hell Jay ?!".
I looked at the night stand clock beside my bed and it showed 4:00 AM.
"come with me Lora, let's get out of here ..." he pleaded.
"what about your girlfriend Jay ?" I asked ready to go back to sleep.
"look at me Lora, she's gone. I broke up with her".
"You can't just break up with her ! who do you think you are? "
"I'm a fucking prince and I do what I fucking want". he picked me up and headed towards my window. Wait what ?
"Jay, you're not going to ju...." and before I could finish, he just jumped out of the window.
Meet my little prince, this boy is the love of my life.
But guess what ? he doesn't know about that.
He's an arrogant idiot, who doesn't care about anything but himself.
apparently he cares about me...


2. Chapter 1

'Just like sand she slipped from in between my fingers, just like sand ...' 


It's been two days since my eyes had last seen an ounce of sleep.


Two days searching for her non-stop, trying not to think too much about the bad things that might've happened to her.


Worried is not a word that can describe what I'm feeling right now, I can't even stand still for  split a second.


I refuse to give up, I can't lose hope. I must find her.


I will search for her for the rest of my life if that's what it takes to find her and assure her safety.


No one is to be blamed for this but me anyway.


I should've told her everything from the beginning. But I was overprotecting her.


I was just afraid to break her heart, but now I know for sure that It's already done.


Just thinking about what happened...


Recalling the incidents of the past three years over and over again in my mind only increased my anger, not to mention the stress levels that was wrecking my nerves.


 I sped up down the road, not caring about the signs of speed limit.


I drove my bike past the cars, as fast as the wind. I reached a point where I couldn't make out the shapes of the objects that I'm passing, yet my vision was crystal clear and my destination is her.


two days ago ...


I stopped by her apartment to give her a ride to college. And of course she was running late, I've made it clear last night when i texted her that she has to be ready on time in the morning cause I don't have much time to waste.


I have people that I need to track so that we can get out of this situation that we've been stuck in for three years now."


'I have work to do, I can't wait for her all day' I thought to myself and got out of the car.


Leaning back on my black car facing the building entrance, I checked out the time on my watch that she's brought for me last year on my birthday and it had one of her drawings in the background. It's my favorite one actually.


More than ten minutes have passed, and the princess still didn't show up.


Can't believe what I've just  referred to her as, I almost smiled at the idea of her being a princess one day. Well even if she doesn't want to she'll still be my princess.


Royalty suits her.


Just as I was imagining her in a beautiful princess gown, something my grandmother used to wear when she was a princess and at her age, she stormed out of the building her bag dangling on one of her shoulders while holding two cups of coffee in both her hands and her blue hair flying everywhere and blocking her vision.


Freaking blue hair !!! When did she do this ?


I slapped my palm on my forehead, and shut my eyes tight not believing what I've just witnessed.


 Is this the princess I was fantasizing about few seconds ago?


What kind of human is she ? All I ever asked from her since we've got to the city  was to stay law key and try not to draw too much attention to herself.


That's all I asked for.


'artists and their freaking twisted minds' I cursed under my breath and went to help her. 


She handed me the two cups and pushed the hair out of her face smiling at me like nothing's out of normal.


"Good morning " she sang with her sweet voice and went to sit in the car. 


The moment she turned around and  saw where the car was parking she looked back at me and I saw fire in her eyes, those same eyes that were full of happiness and playfulness few seconds ago.


I smirked at her and handed her one of the coffee cups "Good morning".


I kept a straight face even though I wanted to laugh so hard at the face change that has just happened.


"Why are you blocking the road Jay ? Couldn't you just park the car like a regular human being ?" she kind of shouted at me.


"Why are you late Miss Lora? couldn't you be here on time ?" I retorted back at her in a calm voice. 


"What part of 'be down here on time' you didn't understand? " I continued.


She rolled her eyes at me and reached for door handle of the car.


But before she could touch it, my hand was already on the door handle so she held onto my hand instead. Her touch felt so good, these kind of moments that make me feel how much I missed her.


I came closer to her and whispered in her ear " Don't you dare roll your eyes at me again" and opened the door for her. 


She got into the the passenger's  seat and heard her whispering to herself " I wish you didn't make all these people wait for me too".


I closed the door and that was the statement that reminded me why I referred to her as a princess earlier.


I went to the driver's side and before I got into the car, I shouted a "Sorry" at the traffic I've just made even though there weren't much cars. In hopes she'd feel better now.


I slid into the car and started driving. 


I took a sip from the cup she handed me and I started gagging and almost threw up, thank god that I didn't eat anything since I woke up this morning.


"Lora, I think this is your cup" I told her while handing her, her disgusting tea.


She just switched our cups, silently and kept looking out of the window. 


I let myself steal few glances at her, trying not to be obvious. But her hair color kept bugging me. Even though it looks beautiful on her, it suits her skin tone and it's just her style but she's eye catching. Anyone can spot her easily, and I'm not ready for this.


"Can you tell me now, what's with the blue hair ?" I asked her.


"What about it ?" she retorted back, clearly still pissed at me.


I didn't respond to that. I locked the car's doors so that she doesn't step out of the car before if comes to a stop and then I pulled over.


This girl is driving me crazy, she keeps pushing it to the edge with me. I just wish she knew who she's talking to, we've been friends since we were kids we know everything about each other but I had kept from her my secret. Not because I didn't want to but because I gave the queen a promise and I'm under an oath now.


I will be able to tell her when the queen gives permission to do so.


When the car came to a full stop, she looked at me with her big irresistible brown eyes locking eyes with her made me feel like I'm entering a whole another world and it's true she is a world by herself, but I can't let my feelings take control Lora's safety is above everything.


"Well? Are you going to say something ? Cause I don't have much time until class starts" she even raised one of her eyebrows in a challenging way.


"You should've thought about it earlier when you were late, princess"


Her face was turning slowly into a pink color, I already that when I finish what I want to say her face will be red tomato.


"Are you willing to tell me about the story behind the blue hair thing ?" I tried to sound as calm and polite as possible.


"Why should I ? You didn't even bother to come over the whole damn week" 


'Shit' I thought to myself, I didn't have time for her the whole  week I was working and I had so many night chases to make. How am I supposed to get myself out of this now ? I fucked up big time.


She's not allowed to have anyone in her apartment but me and she can't get out alone also, I prefer she doesn't do that at all.


She must've been so lonely. I feel so bad for her, but I wish she knew how bad it would be if I wouldn't act so protectively over her.


Usually I go visit her once a day or once every two days, and sometimes I stay a night with her when I'm sure that it's safe for her.


I was too occupied with my thoughts and what explanation to give her, when she interrupted my thoughts.


"Yeah, I thought so. You don't have explain anything." She tilted her head down and looked at her lap, and she starred at her tea cup while holding it with both her hands.


"I don't know why you keep me hidden, when you spend your time with other girls" She continued, more whispering the last part to herself but I heard it.


And I felt it like a stab in my heart. She thinks I go out with other girls while in reality I'm working day and night to keep her safe and away from danger.


She's breaking  both our hearts with her overthinking. Maybe I should take her more out and try to show her more that I'm still her old friend who cares about her.


I don't like the idea of being her friend but I can't be honest with her about my feelings now, it will distract me form the mission and she'll be a weak spot that anyone can take advantage of.


For now I'm not explaining anything for her, I'll let her think whatever she wants and I'll fix everything between us later tonight.


So I just kept silent and started driving again. I could feel her disappointment and the tension in the car reached 100%.


I suck at this. Can it get more complicated than that? 


Little did I know that it literally can ... I will never ask such a dumb question again in my life.


It didn't take us long before we arrived, I parked in front of the college. She took her bag and wanted to get out of the car but the doors were still locked.


She turned around and gave me that look of 'are you for real ?'.


I let this slide off, she doesn't know who she's dealing with anyways.


I took her hand that was still on the door ready to open it, making her face me. I held her soft hand in mine, caressed it and gave her a kiss on the back of her hand.


Then I folded her hand and gave her another kiss on the inside of her hand then I placed her favorite cup cake on her open palm.


Moments like these, make my heart go crazy.  


I looked at her unreadable face. 


'I can't say it, I can't tell her how much I love her' I told myself trying to control myself as much as possible. While my feelings are all over the place.


I just sat there starring at her while she looked at me in disbelief. I'm confusing her.


I myself is confused by myself. 'Oh, Lora what are you doing to me ?'.


Then out of a sudden without saying a word she hugged me.


Not the usual hug that she always gives me. This one was different, it held so much meanings in it.


The whole world froze at this moment. Nothing felt more important than her.


I tried to savour as much as possible out of this moment. I even sniffed her hair like a weirdo.


I wanted to freeze time and stay like that forever... 


But of course she had to go to class, so she pulled away from me slowly. Her eyes avoiding mine. I caressed her blue hair and put a strand behind her ear cause it was on her face, making her look at me.


"I'll see you tonight, please stay safe" I whispered to her.


She nodded at me. 


I kissed her forehead and unlocked the car doors.


If I knew that this would be the last time I see her, I wouldn't have unlocked the freaking car doors. I don't care about her stupid college anyways, she doesn't need to go there but she insisted and I didn't want to stand in her way. I've done enough, I guess.


I parked my bike in front of the entrance of the building she lives in. I was so eager to get there, that I didn't budge to lock the bike or take the helmet off. 


The drive over here felt like it was taking me years.


I just ran for the stairs, taking two at a time. When I got to the second floor, I stormed into the unlocked apartment.


I froze in the doorway, took my helmet off and let it drop to the floor making a loud thud.


I didn't expect it to look that messy.


Her drawings were everywhere, I was careful not to step on any of them.


I bent down and started collecting them, one after one. I admired each and every one of them. I found so many of my face, but in each one I looked different.


Tears were building in my eyes, this is too much for me to handle. The last time I was overwhelmed and in such a mess, is when I was told that I'm actually a prince and that I have responsibilities to take care of and people who look up to me.


I care so much for my people and that's why I do whatever I've got to do to protect them, but this is different. 


I stood up from the ground and straightened my back. "I'm bringing you back Lora" I made her a promise out loud to the empty apartment.


I did a quick scan around the apartment, to see if I need to take anything with me or any clue of who did this.


The apartment feels so cold an d empty without her. She's the spirit that makes everything feel alive as if it has a life of its own.


I sat on the sofa where we used to sit and watch movies together and I kept playing everything in my head.


Something is missing in all of this, like one piece of the puzzle went missing and that what's keeping the whole picture from me.


If Lora was kidnapped, then why didn't anyone contact me or Harry ?


Someone needs to bargain, try to ask for money or anything in return. Unless they knew how much she's worth and then she's just priceless and there's no way to take her back without fighting.


But even then, there's only one person who knows her worth and I've been tracking him since she's disappeared but he didn't show any sign that he has her.


My brain is going to explode. I feel like attacking any person I suspect and beat the shit out of them and I don't care if I may get killed in the process.


My phone started vibrating in my pocket and it snapped me out of my range attack and back to reality. I was praying so much that it would be her telling me she's lost on the streets and wants me to find her and bring her back home.


I piked up the phone, didn't even look at the caller's ID, fantasizing about her sweet voice. And then my dream was punched so hard in the face when I heard Harry's voice on the other side of the line.


I sat up and palm slapped my forehead. I'm going nuts totally.


My heart sank deeper into my chest hurting me so much and that knocked me out of  breath as if someone just kicked me in my stomach. 


"We've got the guy" He said. 


"Talk to me Harry, did we find her ?" I said a little impatient.


"No, I wish we did" the sadness was clear in his voice.


"I'll be on my way in few minutes" I told him and hung up on him.


At least we have something to work with, I hope he knows something about Lora.


I stormed out of the messy apartment, taking my helmet off of the floor on my way out not bothering to close the door behind me.


I can't believe how she'd disappeared so easily. Just like sand she slipped from in between my fingers, a bit by bit until I lost her.  all I wanted is to prevent this and protect her. But I held onto her way too strong I guess and now she's gone nowhere to be found.
