It was time to face my parents. They didn’t deserve my disappearance. Besides, it had been days and I was certain everyone must have gotten used to the news. I packed up and left for home. On my way, I thought of ways to avoid attention from people. I drove straight to a car company, they knew me very well there because the place was owned by Eric’s Friend. I asked to see the owner of the car shop. After we exchanged pleasantries, I told him I wanted to exchange my car for a new one. Eric changed my car every year at that same place. I was going to give them my car for whatever it was worth, pick a new one, and then balance for whatever was left to add after selling the old one. I picked a factory fitted tinted glass, black Jeep. Quite expensive but who cared? I brought out Eric’s credit card and handed it over to the car dealer. After he looked at the card, he had a funny look on his face. I couldn’t care for what he had in mind, I knew he was suspicious. He knew me as Eric’s fiancee, but I was also sure he knew about Eric’s new wife, hence the suspicious look on his face. He managed to fake a smile’ and excused himself that he wanted to pick something from his office, I nodded and said it was okay. He left and I smiled to myself. Who was he fooling? Ofcourse I knew he was running to go call Eric and inform him. A part of me was upset and embarrassed and just wanted to walk out of the place, but the other part of me wanted to see how it was going to end, so I waited for him patiently. Fifteen minutes later, he returned with a broad smile on his face with some papers for me to sign and get my new car registered. I pretended not know what he had been up to. After what seemed like eternity, I finally went home with my new car. Funny enough, I got rid of my car to avoid drawing attention to myself but what was I thinking? A black jeep with tinted glass? I could have as well printed ‘Hey look at me, my name is Lucy, the royal’s rejected’. And I mean that in the most sarcastic way. What an irony! as the people couldn’t stop starring at the car and wondering who it was. As I drove on our street, and till I got to our house, I drew so much attention. I quickly called my brother to open the gate for me and shut it immediately I drove in. That was exactly what happened. I didn’t step out of the car until I was sure my brother had shut the gate. My parents were happy to see me although I still got a scolding for running away when I should have come home. My father was particularly upset about the new car. He said it was too big and expensive. I told him how I was able to afford the car and he instructed me to return the car, the money refunded and Eric’s credit card returned.
“Papa, just forget it, I won’t return the car and I won’t refund the money and neither will I return the credit card. If Eric is upset about it I’m sure there are ways he can block the card. All it will take him is a simple phone call to the bank. So Papa, until Eric has a problem with it, I don’t see why not.” I said to my father who was surprised to see me like that.
I saw my mother whisper something into his ear, apparently advising him to leave me alone. I was clearly not in the mood for scolding and my mother was scared I might leave home again if I was not comfortable. I stayed indoors all day and night. Eric kept calling and asking to see me, truth is, I was dying to see him too but what was the point? Especially with the issue of Gift, the King and the traditions? Besides, I heard Gift had moved into the Palace, I also heard the Queen didn’t want to have anything to do with her. Eric remained in our love nest, refusing to go to the Palace. One night, while I had locked myself in my bedroom and cried my eyes out, my phone rang, it was the Queen.
“Your Majesty.” I said as I picked the phone.
“Lulu, where are you?” she asked.
“I’m at home your Majesty.” she replied.
“Baby, you have been crying, I can hear it in your voice. How long do you think you can carry on like this? Eric says you won’t see him. Lulu, please I beg you, go and see Eric. None of this is his fault. My son is sick, he’s depressed and he has locked himself in his house and has refused to see anyone. Lulu, I know you love Eric, please find him. He’s hurting too, I beg you.”
I was really touched by the Queen’s words. I felt if I didn’t see Eric that night, I may not wake up the next day. I got up, and walked out of the house, screaming at my brother to open the gate for me.
“Young lady, where do you think you are going by this time of the night?” my father asked.
“Papa, I’m going to find Eric.” I replied.
“Why? Is he okay?” my mother asked.
“I don’t know Mama. The Queen just informed me that he’s not doing well and won’t see anyone.” I replied.
My angry father was not happy that I was being bothered about the issues of Eric. “And so what? Why did she call you? Are you a doctor? Young lady, get back into the house. If the Prince is sick, let the King take him to the doctor since he’s very good at handling the boy’s affairs.” my father screamed at me.
I noticed my mother squeezed his hand in a way to calm him and stop him from provoking me. Too late, I was already steamed with the way he was beginning to reprimand me all the time since this issue started. I pretended not to hear him and got into the car, my brother looked at my father, searching his face for approval to open the gate for me. I saw my mother gesture at my father again to let me go. My father looked at my brother and nodded. The gate was opened and just as I was about to drive out, my mother walked up to me, I rolled the glass down.
“You really love Eric?” she asked.
“Yes Mama. You know I do. I have no life without him.”
“Then fight for him. Fight for him Lucy, I am behind you. Fight for him and I will be proud of you.”
I couldn’t believe those words came out of my mother’s mouth, but it made my heart dance.
“From your lips to God’s ears Mama.” I smiled at my mother and nodded, then I drove off. I drove as fast as I could, and in no time, I was at Eric’s place. It took the securities a while before they opened the estate gate for me, I guess it was the new car which they couldn’t recognize. But when I rolled the glass down, they welcomed me and let me in. I was able to let myself in with my key. I saw Eric sitting on the bare floor, wearing nothing but boxer shorts, crying like a baby, his phone was in one hand and mine was vibrating. He was calling me. A bottle of whiskey was in the other hand. He had been drinking heavily. When he saw me, he’s phone fell off his hand as he got up and walked towards me. He held me and pulled me close to his bare chest. I held him too. For a few minutes, we stood there in eachother’s arms, no words, just tears. I looked into his red and swollen eyes, all I could see were pain and sadness. I thought about Gift, how could one woman cause us so much pain? How could one woman be so devious?
“My love, you came.” Eric finally spoke as he squeezed me tighter.
“Yes Eric. Your mother called.” I replied.
“I’m so happy you came. I’m glad you came Lulu. Please don’t give up on me. Don’t leave me Lulu.”
“I won’t leave you Eric. I promise. I can’t live without you.”
Eric grabbed me by my shoulder with tears in his eyes and looked me in the eyes, then he forcefully shook me and cried out loud, “Swear it Lulu. Swear to me you won’t leave me.”
“I swear my Prince..” I cried.
“Don’t you dare leave me Lulu, I swear I will kill myself. I fucking love you. Don’t you get it?”
“Eric, take it easy, you’ve been drinking. Getting drunk won’t solve this.”
“I’m not drunk baby, I’m just pissed. I’m pissed at Gift for messing up my life. I’m pissed at my father for putting traditions before my happiness thereby giving into the whims of that traitor.” Eric growled in tears.
I broke away from the hug, took the bottle from him, and dropped it on the table. He was inconsolable.
“But Eric, this is not…..” I started to say but his mouth took mine before I got all the words out. His tongue silencing my voice. Somehow I found myself pinned to the wall as Eric kissed me, his tongue tangling with mine as his hands unbuttoned her clothes. Our lips remained locked even as we could taste our salty tears. I whimpered against him as he slid my pants down my thighs, his talented fingers cupping me through the cotton of my panties. It felt so good as he stroked me, his index finger pressing into my sex, catching on my clit on every stroke. My hot juice gushed down onto his fingers.
He pulled away from my lips and took his mouth to my ear and whispered, “This……. this baby is why we can’t end this. You understand me?”
I nodded as my feet weakened and my shaky voice replied “Yes! Yes! My Prince, I understand.” I whimpered as Eric stripped my blouse from my body, leaving me in my underwear. His body pressed me into the wall, my back cold and my front burning up as he peeled the cups of my bra down, baring my nipples to his mouth.
For a second he gazed up at me as he snaked his tongue out, flicking against the tender buds before latching on and sucking me hard. I shrieked as he ripped my ass, pulling my butt cheeks apart as he bit down, soothing the sting with lavish sweeps of his tongue. Switching his attentions to my other breast, he slid my pants down my thighs and sucked the sensitive skin of my breast, his tongue sweeping across the underneath before teasing my nipple.
Lost in sensation, I realized he was on his knees, my thigh over his shoulder as he stared into my open pussy, his face rapt as I undulated against him.
“Are you ready baby?”
I murmured incoherently as he blew onto my dripping flesh and almost passed out as he swept one lavish lick through my bared pussy.
“I dream of your pussy every night Lulu. Please don’t shut me out now…” He said with his eyes fixed on my pussy.
Clutching his head, I pressed back against the wall hoping it would somehow keep me upright as his tongue worked overtime to make me fall. He was everywhere. Licking deeply into my pussy, before swiping up to flutter against my aching clit. Over and over, he tormented me before sucking my pussy lips into his mouth and causing my back to bend in pleasure. Breathing heavily, he kissed my inner thighs, his hands gripping my skin as I bucked against him.
Eric’s murmurs of pleasure rang in my ears as he sucked my clit into his mouth, flicking his tongue over the rigid flesh as he fed from me. His fingers brushed my aching pussy, pushing one, two, fingers inside as he thrust deeply, laving my clit gently as his fingers took me hard.
I made noises that sounded inhuman, even to my own ears as he invaded my body, his mouth suctioning my clit as one hand penetrated my weeping slit and the other toyed with my ass. I gripped him hard, my nails digging into his skin as he swept me up higher and higher still. He pushed a fingertip into my ass I broke, sobbing as my body shattered, focused solely on the attentions of his mouth. I shuddered, my world focused on Eric as he showed me sensations I’ve not seen in a while.
He moved, his fingers stroking my throbbing clit as he latched his lips over my pussy, lapping my juices into his mouth. I spasmed again as his tongue entered me, thrusting deeply as he drank from my hole. On and on my body rocked as he played my body like a maestro, taking me up higher and higher until I couldn’t breathe.
All I could do was feel as he stroked and sucked me into another orgasm, this one slower yet more intense, my pussy rippling against his tongue as he pushed deeper, curling the tip of it against my weeping flesh. Everything stopped, my focus on the pleasure curling up through my body as he pleasured me. My thighs trembled and if he hadn’t been holding me up, I would have fallen to the hard floor. But still Eric licked me, his tongue mapping my pussy like a blind man. Tears spilled from my eyes as my pussy wept into his eager mouth and I clutched wildly on his head, pulling him away from my too sensitive body.
Eric stared up at me, his beautiful brown eyes now widened with desire as he heaved oxygen into his lungs. I flashed on how primitive he looked, his open chest baring his beautiful body, his face wet with my orgasm. His mouth was open, his tongue poised to lick me up and I wanted to shout out that he belonged to me. He growled as my fingers grazed his scalp and he bucked towards me, his mouth open in anticipation.
“Eric,… I can’t… No more… please!” I moaned.
He growled and took me again, his mouth gentle as he kissed my skin, teasing my labia as his fingers traced circles on my ass. Softer, his touch as light as feather, he dragged yet another orgasm from my shattered body, a sweet hum of pleasure rippling through me.
Dropping to the floor, I blinked blindly up at him, my body weakened and my soul alight as he bent to kiss me, his frame radiating dominance.
“Never say no to me baby. I don’t fucking like it!” he growled.
I sobbed as he plundered my mouth, his tongue deep and he softly massaged my skin, drawing me back from the sensual fog I currently drifted into.
“This Lulu.. This is what we could always have. I have never…” Eric’s tongue twisted with mine, pulling back enough to force me to pursue it, “Never had an experience with a woman like I have with you. I love you, you know this.” he coed.
I clung to him, my breasts flush to his chest as he held me tight. “Yes My Prince, I know. And I love you too. You take my breath away.” I whispered.
“I would give you everything Lulu… Just give us a chance… please baby don’t give up on me. Stay with me, let’s weather this storm together. Marry me Lulu, let’s go back to our original plan. Please baby, will you?”
I kissed his jaw as his hands swept down my back, pulling me closer. “Okay Eric… Whatever you want… whatever you need. But what about Gift, the baby and your father?”
His eyes looked into mine, the redness creeping slowly back as he focused on mine,
“All you need to do is say yes baby. I’ll handle the rest… Fuck Gift! Fuck traditions! Fuck that damn pregnancy, I don’t care about anything else. All I need is you. As long as I have you, I can conquer the world.”
I smiled, a wide grin that almost threatened to break my face in two,
“Yes Eric. Yes to anything. Yes to everything. Just yes! I will stick with you My Prince. Come what may. I swear it!”
“If I loose you, I will die Lulu. I’m not joking. I fucking love you. You know this My Princess.”
“And I fucking love you more My Prince.” I replied. “I also love the way you absolutely worship my pussy like no other.” I added as I caught a glimpse of his glorious and beautiful cock trapped in those confining boxer briefs. I don’t know if I have ever seen him so hard and so large before. I can’t say enough about how stunning his entire package is, all it took was a quick peek or my hand brushing against it and I needed to have him then and there. That night, I had already had his tongue, his lips, his hands, his fingers, his love, but I was yet to have his cock. Knowing he was that aroused from pleasing me made me wet and ready to go all over again.
I quickly pulled his boxers down, springing free his rock hard cock. I saw the glisten of precum on his tip and in one swift move I was between his legs and licking up his juices. I loved his precum. I loved to feel it with my fingers and my tongue. I like to think of it as the equivalent of him getting me soaking wet. It tasted so good. Slightly salty, but pleasant, and 100% him. I wanted more of his cock then. I surprised him by getting up so quickly, with speed I had his cock in my mouth, but he wasn’t putting up a fight.
“It’s your turn now my love, I want to please you like you did me.” I said in a slow and seductive voice.
I started to work my mouth, lips, and tongue down his shaft, gathering up saliva inside my mouth to further lubricate him. I heard him moan and I could feel his loving eyes looking down on me. I looked up to meet his gaze and take him fully into my mouth. The head of his cock reached the back of my throat and my tongue caressed his shaft, all the while using my hand at the base of his cock. He moaned loudly and started breathing heavily, I loved making him feel good. No one had ever looked at me the way he does. I felt the wetness between my legs drip down my thigh.
I broke the eye contact and went back to focusing on him, I wanted him to cum. I loved how his cock tasted. I tried to take him deeper into my mouth but I gag on his size. It didn’t bother me, and thankfully it didn’t bother him. My saliva got thicker, I liked to use that with my hands. I licked his shaft up and down and made a small fist with my hand, letting the head of his cock slide in and out of it. Faster. He stopped me. “I want to be inside you now.”
In a second, he laid me down and was on top of me. He reached down between my legs to feel if I was ready to receive him. His eyes almost rolled back in his head when he felt how wet I was for him and only him. He bit his lip and said,
“oh, baby girl.” He knew how it will feel as soon as his cock slides into me, as do I. The anticipation was almost too much to bear. I tried to reach down and pull him inside of me but he wouldn’t let me and swats my hand aside. He loved to tease. To build up the anticipation even more.
He started slowly, rubbing the head of his cock up and down my slit but not penetrating. Just letting my juices cover the head. Up, down, up, down, up. My hips with primal instinct tried to rise to meet him, to let him inside but he denies entry. Damn! He was good. He finally let the head go in, I heard him gasp. He let only the head go in, go out, go in, go out.
“OHHHHHHH!” I moaned when he finally let it in. All the way. Holy fuck he felt amazing. How can it be that the one I love fits me so perfectly. “MMMMM oh fuck!” God dammit, there was no way I was going to last long with the sensation of finally having him fully inside me that night. It was almost too much but he felt so fucking good. Still on top of me, he was slowly grinding his pelvic bone on my sweet spot while thrusting. Eric knew me too well, that naughty man. He reached over and placed a pillow under my hips. I started to object because of my wetness but then I felt him slide back in. “Oh…Oh my.” He reached my g-spot with his cock and was still grinding against my clit with his pelvic bone.
He began to sweat above me and a drop trickles off his forehead and onto my lip. I licked it off. Did he see that? I couldn’t tell. I just know I want as much of him as I could possibly get. He leaned in and whispered that he’s about to cum and needed to stop, to switch it up. I gladly obliged and climbed on top of him. That was one of our favorite positions. He gets a view and I get a little control.
I let the head of his penis meet at the entrance my vagina but not go in, it was my turn so I could do whatever I wanted. I let my erect nipples trail down his face and around his lips. He tried to suck them into his mouth like a vacuum. I raised my hips and begin to insert his penis inside me. Very slowly. I wanted to feel every ridge and vein and centimeter of his cock before I reached his pelvis.
When he was all the way in, I started to ride him. I leaned down to kiss his neck and I breathe him in. I could smell his sweat. That turned me on even more as he has no odor to me, only scents that always arouse me. I loved the way my clit felt against his pelvic bone. There was no way to replicate that feeling of him inside of me, hearing his moans of pleasure, smelling, and tasting him. I took it all in and began to feel my orgasm build, yet again. He could feel it, my pussy tightening around his cock, my steady pace of riding him. He had me sit up and ran his hands over my nipples while I continued to ride him. He took some of the wetness we had created from my pussy and using his fingers, he rubbed it onto my nipples. It was so erotic and the sensation was incredible, I was almost there. He squeezed them hard. He put one hand on my waist and the other above my clit. I kept riding him, he started to rub right above my clit, in those beloved sweet circles that he does. I couldn’t help but be loud.I was feeling the most pleasure of my life from the man I loved the most. I felt it building, I felt my orgasm building, building. It was so intense.
“Don’t stop baby, cum for me, I want to feel you cum on me, cum all over my cock, please baby” he moaned. “Cum for me my Princess. Let that sweet juice of yours pour all over my cock.”
That put me over the edge and I came. HARD. My cum was all around him and on him, I was feeling my pussy walls tighten and throb around his cock. He was still rubbing my clit, I kept cumming. He was making me squirt as I kept riding him. He loved it when I squirt, he sighed loudly
“Yes baby, fuck, I love it, more, give me more.” I rode him harder even though the feeling was so intense after just cumming. I squirted again and again. It was all over the floor, I heard the sounds my juices made from my thighs sliding against his pelvis, he still loved it. I rode him harder like a true cowgirl. I wanted him to cum! Faster and faster I rode him, letting my g-spot rub on his cock back and forth, back and forth, I couldn’t stop squirting. Finally, I heard him moan loudly and I felt him cum, I didn’t stop yet, not until he wanted me to. I desired every last bit of his cum inside of me, mixing with my juices and becoming one. He said the word and I slowly lifted myself off of him to find a towel to wipe ourselves with. I almost fell! My legs were so weak from pleasure, I started to giggle and could barely contain myself in my post-orgasmic joy. I dried myself off and tossed it over to him. He groaned when the towel landed on him but started to laugh as well. I loved this man so much. We laid back down in sheer exhaustion and fell asleep in each other’s arms within minutes. Or so I thought. I realized he didn’t sleep same time with me because I woke up the next morning and found myself in his arms and on the bed. He must have carried me to bed and I didn’t even feel it. Who could blame me, I was exhausted, desire and passion had torn through me. I felt safe in his arms, for a moment there, I forgot about our worries, Gift, the traditions and the King. Nothing else mattered at that moment. I was in his arms, right where I’m supposed to be and the world didn’t exist. I made up my mind to stay with Eric till the end.
“A penny for you thought Princess.” Eric said as he woke up.
“Good morning Darling.” I didn’t know you were awake.
“Few minutes ago. I’ve been starring at you. So what’s on your mind?”
“Just thinking how all this will turn out.”
“Don’t worry about it Lulu. When we get to that bridge, we will cross it together. There’s no way I’m ever going to spend my life with that Hefa.”
“But the king…..”
“Forget about him. I will talk to him. I’ve not really seen him since all this started. But I am going to see him any moment from now. He’s gonna have to hear me. He is the King of men, and traditions were made by men and for men.”
“I really hope everything goes well. I can’t loose you.”
“And I can’t loose you Princess. I’ll die.”
Eric squeezed me in and I felt his hardness on my ass.
“What the hell is that Eric.”
“Early morning erection baby.”
“No fucking way man. My pussy still aches from last night.”
“You know, you can’t resist me. Common baby, let’s fuck.”
OMG! He didn’t just say ‘let’s fuck’. Hearing those words made me wet and caused a rush of blood in my veins and I couldn’t resist him. I spread my legs as I slipped my hand over his groin and grasped his hardened cock and he plugged in.
He gives one last push and sinks his balls deep into me He withdraws slowly to plunged back in all the way. And again, and again. Harder and faster each time, until he roared as he flooded my pussy with cum. I spread my legs wide constantly encouraging him and demanding he fucks me until me body stiffens with an orgasm like only he knew how to tear out of me as it charges through my nervous system. My wailing eventually dies down. Eric withdraws and we both went to take a shower together.
“Nice new ride though Princess. It’s very befitting for my Princess. I was actually planning to give you that as a wedding gift.”
“I know, that’s why I got it, Remember we talked about it? By the way, how did you know?” I hit my forehead with my palm as I remembered something and continued, “Ohhh don’t answer that. I already know that, the car shop owner called you and plus the debit alert yeah?”
“Yeah, you got that right.”
“Anyways, I’m thinking of returning the card to you today.”
“But Why? I didn’t ask for it. Baby, keep that card, you will still need it. Just keep it.”
I smiled and gave Eric a kiss. After the shower, we had the breakfast he made for the both of us. It was noon already and I wanted to go home and tell my parents that I’ve mede a decision to be with Eric. As I drove home, I couldn’t help having mixed feeling of happiness and anger.. what did I ever do to Gift? Why would she ruin my life like this? My perfect life. Just then I spotted a familiar figure, I slowed down a bit until I was sure, then I realized I had finally came face to face with the demon. Well, I won’t actually say ‘face to face’ because I was the only one who saw her but she didn’t see me. She was standing by he side of the road, what was she waiting for? A cab? Where was her car? The one the King got for her to ease her pregnancy stress I mean. I parked about four meters away from her. She saw my car but there was no way for her to know I was the one. She didn’t know the car and for the first time, I found a purpose for my new jeep with tinted glasses. What do you know? The bitch had actually developed a little baby bump from the last time I saw her. I began to burn with anger, I was furious and overwhelmed with hate. Suddenly, it hit me, the opportunity I needed to have my Vengeance had presented itself, I could make it a case of hit and run. I had the perfect opportunity to run her down, not enough to kill her though. But just enough to knock out the pregnancy. I would only have to take the car back to the dealer and dispose it for another. This was no coincidence, I got this new car for a purpose, even though I didn’t know it then but I get it now. Heaven had planned my Vengeance. I gripped tightly on the steering, my eyes fixed on the target (Gift). The car was still on park, I pushed the power pedal and I could hear the engine fire up, I put my leg on the break and released the gear to Drive. I released the break and pushed the accelerator forcefully and the car jumped into speed in a kinetic energy. I couldn’t believe it. I was about to hit a human being on purpose, a pregnant woman. What if she died? What if it goes wrong? What if I get arrested? Eric will never forgive me for getting myself into trouble like this one. If I go to jail then I will never be with Eric. Just then, Gift noticed the car speeding towards her, I looked at her and her expression was that off fear and shock. She was so shocked that her legs froze, she couldn’t even move. All she could do was scream. She screamed, I screamed on the steering, everyone on the road screamed. Just as I got close to her, I had a split second to make up my mind, I released the power and stamped on the breaks. With all my strength, with all my pain and sadness, with all the adrenaline that rushed through me, with all the hate I felt for Gift and all my energy, I slammed on the breaks, the tyres screeched loudly on the road but thank goodness the car stopped just a few inches from Gift. It was like one of those things you see in a thriller. My heart raced fast and I could see her soul jumped out of her skin. I came down from the car and walked up to her.
“Gift, are you okay?” I asked.
“What is wrong with you stupid fool? Are you trying to kill me?” she yelled at me.
“Well, I was planning to, I was going to. But then I realized, you ain’t even worth it.”
“Seriously? And you say it so boldly? You have no scruples. I’m going to have you locked up.” she spat.
“What nerve. You don’t think you deserve what you were about to get after what you did to me?”
“Ohh Lucy, so this is about Prince Eric? You tried to knock me down because of Eric? You wanted to kill my baby and I? Do you realize I’m carrying the King’s grandchild?” she mocked me by rubbing her baby bump.
“Are you freaking kidding me? Gift! You think your threats mean a thing to me?” I asked.
“Oh please shut up Lucy. Eric was meant to be mine. I’ve loved him even before I met him. I fell in love with him from the pictures my brother sent of the both of them. But you had to take my destiny and make it yours.” she said ever so boldly.
“I see you are playing the victim card now Gift? Oh please shine a light on my darkness and take me to the river. Eric chose me, I did not go after him. He came for me, you were there. Don’t you have any conscience? He is the best thing that ever happened to me and you had to destroy it? He does not even want you. How do you want to be with a man who despises you do much? Even the Queen cannot stand you.”
“Don’t worry about me Lucy. Worry about yourself, I’m doing just fine. She growled.
“Oh yeah? We all know what fine means.” I threw my hands in the air and counted the words with my fingers, spelling it out loud. “F.I.N.E. Frustrated, In-secured, Neurotic and Emotional.” I mocked.
“You think that by insisting to stay in Eric’s life you will win? I already have the heart of the King. What do you have? A rebellious Prince and his mother? Even in the bible, the Kings always has the final say.”
“Oh somebody call the Pope. We have a saint in the building. What is wrong with you? Don’t you have any remorse? I once thought you had a good reason for what you did. I even imagined maybe Eric came unto you. But what was I thinking? Your pussy has always been a country no man needed a visa to visit. If you think you are going to tear Eric and I apart, you have another thing coming. When the time is right, I will dance on your grave. Stupid Bitch.” I hissed as I walked away, got into my car and drove off. I couldn’t believe that bitch, what nerve? I was so pissed. My phone rang, it was Eric.
“Hello Darling, you won’t believe who I saw and what I almost did.”
“Tell me Lulu. What’s going on?”
“I saw Gift and I almost ran her over. On purpose, I must confess.”
“My heroine. Why won’t I love you? In as much as I want that Hefa out of our way, I don’t want you getting into trouble. Please be careful and stay away from the girl. She’s bad news.”
“I know that Eric. I just lost it there for a few seconds. I can’t believe I let that slut drive me crazy.”
“Stay safe. I can’t marry you if you are in jail. Please stay safe. I just called to hear your voice. When will you be back to the house?”
“I’ve only been gone a few minutes. I will be back in a few hours.”
“Okay Princess. I love you.”
“I love you too.”
By this time, I had driven into my father’s compound. I ran straight to my mother’s bedroom. I couldn’t wait to tell her I was staying with Eric. We didn’t know my father had been listening outside the door. He suddenly coughed and Mama and I kept quiet.
“No, please don’t wipe your excitement away on account of me. Go on, keep celebrating.” pointing at my mother, he said, “As for you, keep encouraging your daughter, when the plan she has with Eric crashes, don’t say I didn’t warn you.”
“But Eric loves our daughter. That is all that matters.” Mama replied.
“Yes! Eric loves Lucy, everyone knows that. Sometimes, Love isn’t just enough. Don’t forget we still have the King who will put his grandchild first. Not to talk of the tradition. That can’t be ignored. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.”
“What if Eric is not the father of that child? If at all there is a child. What if she lied to the king? Mama said.
“Woman! You speak as if you have forgotten the powers the throne possesses. No one can fool the King. He sees what the ordinary eyes cannot see. You are talking about a man who the crown allows to see into the future. There is no way Gift would have been able to lie to him. So it’s best you advice your daughter to forget about the Prince.” papa said and walked out of the room.
Well, my father was right. Love isn’t always enough. But I was hoping it will be enough to come through for us. I told Mama I came face to face with Gift today but I didn’t tell her I almost ran her over. I couldn’t afford for my father to hear that. After a long chit chat with Mama, we went to the market together and we came back and cooked. Mama was happy that I was back to my old happy self. My father was indifferent. The old man was worried about me which was very normal.
That evening, I went back to Eric’s. I was surprised that Eric was not there. I put the food I brought from home in the microwave so Eric would have it for dinner. I was dressed in a bum short and tshirt so I could be comfortable. Besides, it was just Eric and I in the house and he loved it when I dressed sexily around the house. Just when I was about to lie on the bed, I heard the door bell. Eric had his keys so I paid no attention to the doorbell. But it rang again. ‘Maybe Eric forgot his keys.’ I thought to myself. I got up and ran to the door. All excited to see Eric.
“I’m coming my Prince. What? Did you forget your key?” I yelled out as I flung the door open. But the most shocking thing happened. I almost jumped out off my skin. It was the King!!! No one could ever imagine the shock on my face as my heart jumped into my mouth. I swallowed hard. I was overwhelmed by the distinctive atmosphere that surrounded the King. I couldn’t believe my eyes, what was the King doing here? I didn’t know what to do, I was afraid. Yes, I was familiar with the Royal family. I was treated like one of them during all my visits to the Palace. The King had in many occasions, invited me to the throne room to chat with him. And I must say it was an honor, a very rare privilege. The King was feared and at the same time respected, commoners could not look him in the face. The aura that surrounded him made people tremble, as far as the people were concerned, ‘the King is next to God. People said the King had powers to say things and they happen and he could see things the ordinary eyes couldn’t. My father said the power came with the crown. So, for this man who commanded so much respect and fear from every human and even wild animals who trembled at the sight of his adornment, to be standing in front of me outside his palace was something I could not contain. What scared me most was the situation with Gift. I didn’t know how he would feel about me. As soon as I opened the door and my eyes and his met, I quickly turned my face away from him and courteceid.
“Your Highness.” I exclaimed in shock as I went on bended knees. “May you live long my King.”
“Where is my son?” he asked as he walked passed me into the house followed by aids.
“He was here when I went out your bigness. But when I returned, I didn’t find him.”
“Hmmm, I see.”
When he had gotten into the living room, he turned to his aids and said, “Excuse us.”. They all courteceid and left. I swear, one could cut the tension in the room with a knife. I ran into the bedroom and grabbed a piece of cloth which I wrapped around my waist and in a few seconds, I was back to the living room. I decided to break the awkward silence.
“Your highness, would you like me to call the Prince on phone and find out where he is? I’m sure he will hurry here once he’s aware the King is here for him.” I tried to ease the tension and end the agonizing silence.
“No! It’s a good thing he’s not here, I came because I knew he wasn’t here. I had wanted to see you and talk to you for a while now. Ever since the day you walked into the palace and fainted.” He gave a snort of derision and I rolled my eyes while avoiding making eye contact with the King.
“You mean the day Eric and Gift had an introduction behind my back?” I asked politely even though the question had a rooted meaning. I was only trying to help him say what he was clearly avoiding to say. It was calling a spade, a spade.
“I am surprised to see you here Lucy, giving the fact my son is expecting a child with Gift. Why waste your time? I have nothing against you Lucy. But my son won’t marry you.” the King said.
“But your highness, the prince and I love each other.” I muttered in tears and sucked in a sharp breath.
“Hmmm, Modern day Romantique, I see.” He said in a very sarcastic way. “Well, in this case, traditions must be a obeyed and my grandchild comes first. Stop wasting your time here. Move on with your life. You are a good girl Lucy, and you are still very young and beautiful.”
I clenched my jaw as my knees weakened and I fell on my knees. I broke down and cried. I could hear the fast beating of my own heart.
The King continued.
“If you love Eric, you would let him be. You don’t have to be selfish. He is a Lone-Prince. He is my only successor. If his first Child is born out of the Palace, my family will loose the throne. That is something that has never happened. The throne of my fore fathers cannot be lost just because of some puppy love. If what you feel for Eric is real, then you must seek what’s best for him. Do you have any idea what will happen to him if he fails to obey the tradition? Will your love for him stand when he falls and the kingdom is divided?”
I twisted my hands and pinched my fingers together in an attempt to stop myself from crying. But tears poured down my face. I was so heart broken. Just when I decided to stay with Eric, now this? Oh Gift, you have ruined my life. Why didn’t I run her over when I saw her earlier today. I would have gladly gone to jail knowing that she wouldn’t have Eric and neither would I and Eric will still be a King in waiting.
“Lucy, I understand how you feel. Life is like that. Most love do come to an end. Some rarely end clean. They sometimes end badly. But what is most important is to cherish the good moments and move on. If you really love Eric, then you shouldn’t let him loose his birth right. Love is sacrificial.”
“Yes your highness, you are right.” I cried. “I understand. Thank you for your honesty, I guess I was in denial and needed time to accept the reality I already knew. But your highness, if you liked me in the past like you said you did all those times we sat as a family in your throne room, then please do me a favor. Please my King.”
“Yes Lucy, anything.”
I sighed heavily. Trying to comport myself and get my voice to steady.
“Your highness, it is said that he who possesses the crown has powers and the ability to see into the future.”
“Indeed Lucy, that is true.”
“Then tell me what you see in my future. I feel like I am going to die soon without Eric. Do you see him in my future?”
The King smiled. He walked up to me, I was still on my knees, he held me by both shoulders and lifted me to my feet. I was still scared of looking him in the eye so even though I was on my feet and facing him, I managed to look directly to the ground.
“Look me in the eye Lucy.” he ordered me and I obeyed. “Destiny can only be delayed but can never be changed. You won’t die Lucy. I will surely see you in the future. But for now, I have to do right by my ancestors, I have to uphold the tradition of my people. If you Love Eric, you will do the same.”
With that, the door opened and he walked out off the house. I dropped to the floor again on my knees and cried. This time, I cried loudly. The King was right, I couldn’t let Eric throw his life away because of me. It was already dark so I ran into the room and put on a thong and a dress with my black shoe. There was no time to pack my stuffs out of Eric’s house besides, that will make him know what was up and come after me. I needed to leave before Eric got home. Just as I got into the car to leave, Eric pulled up beside me. I waited for him to step out of his car, then he opened my car door and got into the passenger side.
“Where do you think you are going?” he asked.
“Where have you been? I have to rush to the house. My father just called me. If I can’t return, then we will see tomorrow.”
“I hope everything is okay? Do you want me to go with you?”
“No baby. I will call you.”
“By the way, when I stepped out of the car I had a weird feeling like a blood rush. As if the King had been here. I can feel his embiance. Was my father here? Did he talk to you? Is that why you are leaving?”
“No Eric. I haven’t seen the King. Are you sure you are feeling well?” I asked him, touching his forehead as if to check his temperature. The truth is, I was scared about the gift the royal bloods have. No wonder the King was very protective about Gift’s child. There is something special about them.
“I’m okay Baby. Well if my father has not been here, then maybe he’s on his way.”
Eric leaned in to give me a goodbye kiss but I couldn’t let him go. I pressed my lips harder on his and kissed him deeply and longer. I knew it was the last time I was going to see him so I decided to make the most of this last moment. With our lips locked together, my right hand caressed the back of his head while my other hand pulled him in closer to me.
His hands were just as busy as mine, he reached a hand onto my lap and started to massage upwards along my thigh.
“Stop it!” I complained. “I don’t want to go inside for us to finish what we are about to start. I have to go see Papa.”
“Why do we have to go inside? Who says you can only fuck in the house? Ofcourse I want to fuck you right here.” He teased as his hand slid further up my leg brushing my dress aside as he did.
“Okay then my Prince charming. If you must fuck me here, then I want you to take control of me. Fuck me like you’ve never done before. Make me your little bitch. Take me like you would an unrepentant slut. I want tonight to be an unforgettable night.” I moaned in his ears.
“Wow Princess. If I didn’t know any better, I would say you are going away for a long time. What has gotten into you tonight. I prefer to treat you like a Princess.” He replied.
“Then right now, I am not your princess. I am just a slut who wants to be fucked by you. Impress me my prince. I want to never forget this night.” I coed as I leaned back in the seat and closed my eyes and his fingers gently stroked my bare thigh and slowly crept upwards towards my thong, which I could already feel was soaking wet.
“Wow.” He said with a chuckle as I spread my legs, allowing his hand to trace freely over the wet lace of my panties.
“Remove those.” He commanded. I was terrified that someone would see, despite the fact that it was almost dark, but thrilled at the same time. I slowly pulled the wet panties down to my laps and then stopped.
“Keep going.” he said firmly and I obeyed. I slid my panties out from under my dress down to my knees.
“That’s enough.” He said. “Now lean back and pull your dress up.” I reclined the chair slightly so I could lean back. I had no idea what Eric had in mind, but I loved being told what to do. I grasped the sides of my dress and edged it up.
“Higher.” He ordered and I obeyed. Surely it was too dark for one passing to see my exposed pussy should they happen to look down at us as they passed. It seemed to matter less and less whether they could or not as my heart began to beat faster.
“Spread your legs.” Doing so made me feel ever so horny. He continued. “Tell me what you want.”
“I want you to touch me.” I said softly.
