Jonathan is a new student, a hot new student, and he knows it. Add to that the fact that he's a werewolf, all strong and possessive male, and he is damn proud about it. To her utter and complete despair, he takes interest in her... *************** The Alpha's Seduction Prologue Copyright © 2016 all rights reserved to Larose Semsem.

Not that I was complaining, mind you! No, not at all. I didn’t like being in front, way too close to the teacher. The middle offered one major inconvenience; I would be surrounded by other classmates from all sides, which was not what one would be willing to go through if they were the second-to-biggest loner of the school. These were the reasons why the desk at the back suited me just fine. I was not antisocial or anything, it’s just that I earned the right to be at this school; an honorable private school that I wouldn’t have been able to even dream of because of its expensive fee. But, lucky for me, I was a brilliant student. The communication problem I shared with my classmates might be due to the fact that I was a little younger than them. Most of them were seventeen or eighteen, whereas I had still to turn sixteen. The fact that I skipped a grade or two may influence their judgment. And then, there was the fact that I actually had a scholarship to be among these snobs. So not easy to make friends, I inwardly sighed. My family wasn’t poor – my mother was a nurse and my father a cop. I had two brothers; Jeremy, the older one, was now at the local college, studying mathematics; whereas Jake, my little baby-bro, was in 7th grade. So yeah, I led a pretty normal life, with...
The Beauty Of Love
Fiona McGuire and Justin Carter, both were forced to marry each other. This marriage is not exactly a business deal. Fiona is from a middle class family where as Justin is a CEO of Carter group of industries. So what happens when they are married and what is the reason for their? And most importantly, will they be able to work this marriage out and fall in love? *************** The Beauty Of Love Chapter 1 - The Forced Marriage It has been one week, 7 days and 168 hours, when her name was officially changed from Fiona McGuire to Fiona Carter. A week has passed by and still, there is no clue of her so-called husband. Like normal couples, after exchanging their vows, they go for their honeymoon in a romantic place. But unlike any of them, Fiona was still sitting on the couch in her new home, thinking about her perfect marriage life which was far from being perfect. Except for his name which is Justin Carter, Fiona knows nothing about him. Before marrying Justin, she knew that their relationship would not be like other couples, but she thought that they could at least be friends and give their marriage a chance. Maybe they could start over. But she was expecting too much from him. She was being delusional that Justin would want this arrangement to turn into a proper marriage. To others, Fiona and Justin are a happily married couple, but only her dearest father in law and Grace know the truth about the deal of their marriage and probably her mother in law. Grace is a housemaid of Justin's apartment. For the past few days, Grace had been an ideal friend and mother to Fiona. She is in the late 40s and like her name she is very graceful in everything she does. She has been with Justin since he was born and took care of him along with his mother. So you can practically call her his second mom. Fiona's thoughts were distracted as soon as she heard the doorbell. The first thought that came to her mind was that her dearest hubby finally decided to show his face after the night of their marriage. When Grace opened the door, Fiona saw a six-foot tall, gorgeous man entering the house in his gray business suit. He had ocean blue eyes which looked tedious at the moment. His dark chocolate brown hair was disheveled probably because of working a whole day... oops; she should say a whole week. Without even glancing at her, he went directly...
~She thought he loved her... Bella was a small country town girl, who well in love with one of the most eligible and richest bachelors in the country. She didn't think twice before marrying him and leaving her past behind... or so she thought. ~... can he win her back before she leaves forever? Business tycoon Jasper Rutherford had everything, money, properties, respect and now a secret. All he really needed was true love. Is he able to save his marriage before Bella leaves him? Can they re-spark the love they had ten years ago? Or was it too late. * * * The perfect romance story from the Author that wrote 'Marriage by Law' which has 40 million readers. A witty and addictive love story that will leave you laughing, swooning and maybe just (happy) crying. *************** Start Again Prologue Sometimes when I stared at him, I wondered if everyone else saw the same man I did. Did they see a handsome young man, devoted and dedicated to his company? Or did they see an exhausted man that was overworked who needed a good night's sleep? Did they think his eyes were a beautiful silver colour or would they see them as the gloomy grey thunderclouds in the sky before a storm? I could no longer tell when they would go from being peaceful to look at, to a raging angry storm. Maybe they thought his jawline was strong, defined and almost desirable. But all I could see was the clenched molars behind that jaw, right at the back of the jawline near just before his skin dipped down to form the throat. I couldn’t remember the last time I didn’t see a clenched jaw, for he was always stressed. Everyone thought he was tall but all I could see was that he used it to be intimidating and to assert his dominance. He needed that at work, not at home. Strangers saw him as beautiful, handsome and intelligent. I wasn’t a stranger, but I might as well be one, even though I didn’t see anything that they saw. Standing in the middle of his work event, I could see everyone would go up to say hello to him, almost like he was the friendliest boss they had ever met. Yet I was standing so far away from him, trying to avoid any contact. But I had to go over, we put on a good show when we needed to. I was the perfect wife, always attending his events, putting in effort to be presentable to be the wife of one of the most successful businessmen in the country. I always played my part, perfectly, or so I thought. I worked up the courage to finally approach him when I noticed the two staff members talking to him walk away. When he turned to look at me, my stomach flipped. Before I married him, it used to flip in the good way, butterflies soaring in my tummy. No… well it flipped in the bad way, my stomach had a dense pain to it that something bad was going to happe...
The Beta's Catch
When Cybele fails to frame her bully in the act of revenge, she’s caught by the dark and handsome Student's Council President. Cybele doesn't want to do anything with him but she's unaware of the plans that he already has for her. *************** The Beta's Catch PROLOGUE -HER- It’s a truth universally accepted that a student on their first day of college is nervous and terrified as fvck. If you don’t agree with this fact then you, whatever your name and origin, are lying. Right now, standing at the entrance of my college, I am on the verge of peeing in my pants and the fact that I have confidence deficiency isn’t helping me in this situation either. My palms are sweating and my knees feel like they are made up of jelly. My breath is coming out in short pants as if I’ve been running for hours and my mouth seems drier than the great Sahara desert. I clutch the straps of my bag painfully hard as my heart flutters in my chest like a caged bird flapping its wings against the bars, wanting to be set free. “Breathe, Cybele. ” I say to myself and step inside the huge building but nearly jumping back when a heard of students suddenly appear out of nowhere in front of me. I sigh deeply when the crowd dissolves and I continue to make my way towards the Grand Auditorium where the newbies are supposed to meet. Somehow I manage to find the Grand Auditorium and enter it. I regret coming to this place as soon as I step foot into the humongous room packed with people. I internally flinch seeing such a big crowd containing people of different shape, sizes, and colors. You see, I am not a social person. I run in the opposite direction when I see people because they scare me. People are scary. I make my way through the crowd to the end of the auditorium, being pushed or elbowed in the ribs several times. I feel claustrophobic and it doesn’t help my already nervous state. Finally, I manage to find a decent seat and wait for the whole welcome program to start. The whole crowd buzzes with excitement and anticipation for the event whilst I am having second thoughts to leave this place and go back home and be in the safety of my room. As time passes, I see the room fill up with more and more people whilst the noise of t...
Too Beautiful For the Alpha
Rae East has always cast herself off as a girl not worthy of a Mate. With a past of self-doubt and expectations of a hopeless future, her theory crumbles when she discovers she is mated to an Alpha. Not expecting anything from it, Rae finds herself in a confusing situation. Giving no clarity, her Alpha Mate brings her back to his pack with no purpose. She sinks into herself, lost, alone, and in pain. With a Mate who has no interest in her whatsoever, Rae struggles to find her purpose in the pack and in her own world. Not knowing if she has a future with the Alpha she can't help but want, Rae must search elsewhere for happiness like she had once planned. But with a taste of the bond she can't help but share, it becomes difficult to move on from the Alpha who holds her heart captive. *************** Too Beautiful For the Alpha Chapter 1 When I was younger, I convinced myself that I would never have a Mate. Maybe it was for dumb reasons like, my face is full of pimples, or my legs are too fat, or my hair is dry and not as soft and shiny as hers. In my young mind, I believed no guy would want me because at the time I didn't possess such traits. It is a stupid thing to believe—that I am too ugly for a Mate—but the thought grasped onto me for years. The thought brought me to tears while I sat in my bathtub, only in the tub so no one could hear me. All in all, I was depressed. Me, a sixteen-year-old werewolf at the time, was depressed because of my physical appearance. I mean, werewolves are supposed to be beautiful right? Flawless skin, vibrant hair, lushes lips, soothing voice, perfect body, a list of traits that surrounded me, yet traits I didn't have. All of the girls my age were beautiful, and I was the ugly duckling. "Don't worry, you'll grow into your ears," my mother would tell me, pushing my dull, knotted brown hair over them. "Don't worry, I'm sure your breasts will come, you're just a late bloomer," she'd say. "Your feet aren't too small. " "Your face will clear up. " "Having brown eyes is lovely, people want brown eyes like yours, Rae. " I'd stare up at her and think about all the lies she's told me. Will I really grow into my ears? No. They'll always be a little too big, and they still are three years later. My mother was a beautiful woman, and a beautiful wolf too. She looked more like one of the other girl's mothers than mine. She could have been an Alphas Mate, that's how perfect she was. Only the most beautiful girls are mated with an Alpha. Sadly—in my theory—I wouldn't get a Mate at all. At first, the thought made me depressed, but as the years went by, it made me feel free. As the other girls prepared for gatherings—ones where packs would get together in search of their Mate—I would sit at home and argue with my mother. "I do...
All I Wanted was a Mate
After the destruction of her pack, and the loss of her family, Annalee heads into the woods and faces life alone. *************** All I Wanted was a Mate Chapter 1 I quietly closed the front door and turned to face the forest, also know as my new beginning. The deep dark abyss of the woods during the night always gives me the creeps, but there isn't enough time to waste cowering over it. Hesitantly, I made my way down the porch steps and the driveway. I walked along the dirt road until I came to the forest line, I took a deep breath and walked into the dark city of green. After a couple boring minutes of walking, I decided to shift into my wolf to speed up the journey. I set down my duffel bag and stripped off my clothes; I didn't want to rip them like most careless people. Placing my clothes inside the duffel bag, I shifted into my golden brown wolf, just like my mothers. Picking up the bag, I I carried it in my mouth, and continued deeper into the woods, heading South. After about two more interminable hours I was exhausted, I guess that's what I get when I leave at ten o'clock. Prancing up to a soft brush of bushes under a giant tree, I curled up under the foliage and relaxed my aching body. I peered up at the full moon, high in the sky with stars scattered around it, my eyes slowly shut and soon enough I drifted off to sleep. ~•~ My eyes fluttered open, and I was greeted by large trees, jade bushes, aged rocks, and a girl about my age... Wait, what. Immediately I got up, shaking the leaves and dirt off my wolf, ready to defend myself. "Can you shift back? " She asked politely. First I thought this is just a plan and she's going to attack me, but scanning her carefully I noted a few things. She has nothing with her, she doesn't seem like much of a fighter, and she has Alpha blood. I could sense her power as soon as I calmed down. I nodded and grabbed my duffel bag going behind the tree that doubled as my temporary bed. Shifting, I put my clothes back on and walked out. The girl was now sitting on a medium sized boulder, but when she saw I was done, she jumped off the rock ...
Mia Jackson has been hired by Caleb Stonehouse to drive him to work every morning. Despite being drop dead gorgeous, mysterious and sometimes rude Caleb doesn't seem to take in interest in Mia whatsoever. The last thing Mia expects is to find him stumbling into her workplace with a gunshot wound and asking for her help . . . What has Mia got herself into? *************** Dangerous Driving Chapter One - Unexpected Turn. Chapter One I put the key inside the door and push it open, lugging my groceries behind me. It's a stupidly hot day in Virginia and I blow out a deep breath, struggling to carry everything inside. As I give up and drop them to the floor besides the door mat, my eyes land on a white letter with the words URGENT stamped across the front in red lettering. "That doesn't look good... " I mutter under my breath, bending down to retrieve it. I quickly tear it open, dropping my car keys onto the kitchen counter before heading for my bright pink couch. I freeze as I drop down onto it, my eyes skimming over the contents of the letter. "Unpaid rent... four weeks before eviction... must be paid immediately... " I groan, dropping the letter to the floor and burying my face in my hands. My job working as a waitress isn't glamorous or paid well either. Since moving into my flat at the prime age of twenty two, I've missed six out of nine payments. That's not great. I glance around at my small but full of character flat that I've called my first home. It's designed with my favourite colours in mind - pink, pastel blue and green. Lots and lots of green in the form of plants. I love plants so I have them scattered around all over the place. My ex boyfriend called me a plant hoarder. I wouldn't take it that far. It's been two months since we broke up and I still miss him. He said I was beautiful and a great person but he felt like something was missing in our relationship. I roll my eyes, wondering whether I'll ever understand the male species. I drag myself to my feet and head for the kitchen to pour myself a glass of red wine. It's the evening somewhere in the world which technically means I can have a drink, right? I pour myself a large glass before using my fingers to scrape my dark brown hair upwards into a messy bun. "Well Mia Jackson, you should probably come up with an idea to make some money. . . And fa...
Big Bad Alphas
Eric's lips brush mine, a slow, light action that already has me hooked. A comforting warmth engulfs my body, spreading from limb to limb like wildfire. His sweet lips move delicately with my own, the caress of his lips softer than I could have imagined. It is over too soon as he drifts away. "Now was that so difficult?" Eric murmurs as I try to register what just happened. <> <> <> While trying to see the best in everyone, Isabella finds herself battling against her own mind. After an attack on her pack, she has to choose between her newly discovered Alpha mate and her beloved, younger sister. Her heart is in the palm of his hand--though she struggles to admit it--but that doesn't mean he won't crush it. It is a game of trust, and she cannot afford to lose. *************** Big Bad Alphas Chapter 1 "I didn't do it. " "Isabella we know you did, now tell the truth or face jail time! " She stands up and pretends to act serious, even though I know she is holding back giggles. "Detective, I didn't steal the cookies, but I know who did," I give her a stern look and her cheeks flush pink. "You do? " I nod and her face begins to show her nerves. "You stole them. " She shakes her head, no. "I know you did, so you might as well confess. " I shrug and stand up from the carpet. "You hungry? I can heat up dinner? " "Yeah, when will mom be home? " She follows me into the kitchen before climbing and sitting down on one of the stools. "And don't tell her I ate the cookies. " I smile while shaking my head. "Fine, and she'll be back at ten so after dinner get your PJs on. Maybe we can watch a little T. V. " My little sister nods frantically. "Thanks, Isabella, you're fun. " I chuckle and pull her favorite plate from the cabinet, "thanks. " After she eats up and runs to her bedroom to change, I clean up the dishes and lean on the counter. Checking the clock I see it is already nine. Kendra is a good kid, staying up a little later won't hurt anybody. It is not like our mother will be bothered by it. When she comes trotting down the steps I immediately change my attitude— acting joyful for her. "You ready for T. V. " Together we cuddle up in the living room and I turn on the T. V. Some random kids show comes on and I leave it on for Kendra, knowing it's something she'll be interested in. Even though she is my younger sister sometimes she feels like my daughter. Our mother is not around too much, she is constantly busy with pack duties. As the Betas second-hand-woman, she is quite occupied all of the time. I used to mind, but I have grown used to it. I can't imagine how busy Beta Jack is with the Alpha, so I'm thankful. Ripping me from my thoughts, a sudden crashing notice comes from the front of the house. My mother appears in the h...

" I tell her in hopes to help ease her however Cara being Cara doesn't know how to do that. She just sighs heavily and puts her hand on top of mine. "What if they find us again? " She asks me timidly. I don't respond immediately however I squeeze her hand reassuring her. She squeezes mine back. "I will not allow them to get to you two, do you understand me? They will never hurt either of you while i'm still breathing. " I state to her with a promised laced in my voice. She goes stiff before she shifts so that her head is laying on my shoulder. Her long hair brushing against my arm. "It shouldn't be on you to look after us. I mean your only older by a few minutes. " I chuckle at her statement and gently pat the side of her face. Shaking my head, I kiss her gently. She sighs again and starts playing with my hand. Her fingers leaving a slow trace on my palm. "It could be a few years like Leila or few minutes however I will still be older and want to protect you. You both are my only concern and I will continue to focus on you two until-" My statement being cut off when her hand whips up to my mouth stopping me from finishing. When she realizes that I'm done, she lets her hand fall from my mouth and continues to trace my hand with her fingers. I lay my head back ...

Gasping in surprise and embarrassment, Emery jumps to her feet and tries to reclaim the book back. But it's no use; Dane’s much taller than her, not to mention much stronger. The only thing that would ever cause her to win the physical battle would be a dirty blow to the nuts and it’s not like she can do that either.

But is she really one or is it just a cover? Meet Aiden Black, the typical bad boy who do whatever he wants and who's always surrounded by the popular clique. What's going to happen when they come across each other? Read to find out. *************** Fake Nerd Alert Chapter 1: Get to know me "Karma Victoria Amington! It's your last week to school so wake up! " My mom's voice hollered from downstairs. I groaned and reluctantly sat up while yawning. Why do we have to get up so early? I walked to my bathroom and rubbed my eyes lazily. The knocks on my door made me glare at it and I opened the tap. "What do you want? " I asked grimly. I'm not a morning person. "Mom's telling you to wake up! Come on sis! Last week of school! Aren't you excited for the holidays? " My brother asked happily from behind the door. I smiled at my brother's cheerful voice. He's my twin and we were really close. "I'm already up" I told him. "And of course I'm excited to get away from the hell" I joked. I heard him chuckle and he walked away. The hell? Well, that's what you call high school. At school, they call me a nerd. No. I don't wear glasses. No. I don't wear baggy clothes. I simply get good grades and try to avoid trouble. The queen bitches found it amusing to call me a nerd as they didn't find a cast to put me in. I was not ugly. On the contrary, I got the beauty genes from my beautiful mother. I have long wavy dark red hair which I always tie in a messy bun. My gray eyes sparkled in the mirror facing me. I smiled at myself, showing off my dimples.

Love Will Bloom Here (A Love Worth An Eternity Volume 1)
[VOLUME 1 COMPLETED] A love story that started with the innocent falling of a gloxinia flower, and had made two completely different people's paths cross for the first time. A charming guy who was leading a carefree life... A headstrong girl who was carrying a broken heart... Two people who had a rough start and yet they found comfort from each other when they least expected it. As they spend time together, they began discovering a deeper part of each other... even the truths that each of them had hidden from the rest of the world. They gave each other more reasons to show their true smiles as they gave each other more reasons to dreams, as well. *************** Love Will Bloom Here (A Love Worth An Eternity Volume 1) 1.1 - Unusual Day It was only six-thirty in the morning. But as for me, I finally arrived at the Oceanside Rose University. To be precise, I was standing in front of the building of Engineering and Architecture Department. That school was located just a few miles near the town and I would be studying here starting this semester. But then I couldn't understand why I couldn't even take a step towards the building. I couldn't believe I had to feel this. This wasn't the time for me to have butterflies in my stomach. There was also no reason for both of my hands to feel this cold that were holding the straps of my backpack hanging on my back. "Nervous? " I turned around to the source of that voice. Even though I had to admit that I was indeed nervous, I still managed to smile when I saw my cousin Mayu. It so happened that we took the same course, which was Architecture. The truth was, this wasn't the college course that I wanted to take. At least, that was what I felt. But until now, I still don't know what course did I really want to take up. I just decided to give in to what my father wanted for me. It was just for now, until I couldn't figure out what exactly what I wanted. "Why don't you enter? It's not like the people would eat you or anything for you to be this nervous," Mayu said when she finally approached me. "You know that I'm a newcomer here, right? Of course, I'd feel nervous. " But my cousin just stared at me incredulously as if she couldn't believe what I just said. I frowned at that sight. Why would Mayuu look at me like this? "What are you talking about? In case you've forgotten, you were born and raised here until nine years ago. You just disappeared for nine years, and now you're calling yourself a newcomer? Are you crazy? " "It's still the same. " This girl. Why can't she just agree for now? I was just being slightly dramatic. "Let's go before we end up late for our fi...

His Drakaina, as he named her, will set his heart on fire and when he smiles back at her, her heart too will be set on fire. *************** Hearts On Fire One: Court Case The hot wave of the afternoon caressed his cheek and he closed his eyes, it was so hot that he could feel the way sweat was forming into beads on his forehead. He looked through the mirror and watched as they moved past the green plants and people walking on the road in a blurry vision. He felt nothing, not even the one he saw nearly thumped upon by another driver. All he could feel now was the hot air wafting through his nostril and caressing the pores of his skin. His heart was the same as it was, yesterday. Ten years back, and will be, forever. The driver drove into the palace and he parked in front of the chamber his mother lived, before he looked at him. “We’re here, sir. ” He nodded his head before the door was unlocked for him and he placed his legs down and stared at the palace. It was the place he hated to visit the most, at the same time the place he loved to visit the most. He loved it because he was able to see his Umma, and he hated it because he had to follow the ethics of the palace. The two police officers saluted to him and he walked past them without even acknowledging them. The maids he met on his way knelt down to their knees and he didn’t spare them a single glance. He was finally at the main living room of her chamber, where she was always seated. He heard as the maids announced his arrival and he walked directly to where she was seated, his mother. She looked up and her eyes fell on his khaki cladded body and she turned away, he felt nothing. He sat down and smiled at her, all that she thought him had never went into the drainage, he was still practising. She knew he wasn’t truly smiling, but she was glad he did, nonetheless. “Good afternoon, Umma. I hope I met you in good health? ” She sat upright before she crossed her legs and held a stoic expression. She seemed to be so much like him whenever she was together with him, because that was the only way he could truly understand what she meant....

A heartwarming tale where Bella Winters endures heartbreak that sends her on a discovery of self love and confidence. *************** His Blonde Little Secret Chapter 1. "Bella Winters, do not make me come in there! " My older brother Jedd bangs on my bedroom door which has become a daily routine of his. I cover my exposed face with the warm sheets, sinking back into dreamland. "Bella! " He warns me through the cracks in the door and I sigh, feeling myself pull deeper away from sleep and merging further into the grim reality of my life. I'm not a morning person . . . At all. "Leave me alone Jedd! " I murmur sleepily, my voice groggy. I hear him sigh behind the door, his footsteps retreating. "If you're not up in twenty minutes Bella, I'm breaking down your door! " "Keep your hair on Grandad, I'm getting up! " I yell in response, throwing my duvet to the side and groaning from the sudden cold that hits my warm sleepy body. I hear Jedd mumble something about difficult teenagers outside my bedroom and I roll my eyes at him. He's twenty, making him three years older than me but acts like the age difference between us is years apart. I pull down my hair from its ponytail and head to the bathroom, pushing open the door. The strands of my hair cascade down my back, tickling the exposed skin. I rotate my head left and right, relieving the tension from sleeping in one position all night. I reach for my toothbrush, applying some toothpaste before getting to work on my teeth. My eyes wonder over to the small photo pinned on my bathroom mirror. It's a picture of Jedd, Dad and I taken a few years ago at a summer BBQ. I'm holding a burger in my right hand, Dads arm swung over my shoulders. The smile on my face is the definition of uncomfortable from having my picture taken. My parents divorced when I was five but truthfully it didn't affect me. My mother and I never seem to get along.

Have you ever stared at a word for so long that the letters begin to merge together, blurring in your vision? The hold I have on the white stick that has changed my life forever tightens and I feel my knuckles tense with the pressure. My eyes drift across the test result before flickering over to my boyfriend, Jake Melvin. He's watching me with fear in his usually bright blue eyes. His face drains of colour and he remains frozen to the spot — "What does it say? " Jake murmurs quietly as his entire family stands in the doorway of the bathroom in complete shock, too stunned to speak. I don't need to look back down at the result to double check, the word will forever be carved in my mind. "It's positive," I whisper in response, watching as the colour completely drains from his face. He stares back at me in complete shock and I continue trembling, unable to hold back my emotions. "I'm pregnant. " I add in disbelief, the words sounding foreign on the tip of my tongue. Jake and I are barely adults. . . How can we be responsible for an entire other human being? "You should do another test. . . incase it's wrong. " Jakes mother, Michelle says to me. I shake my head and hold up the test I'd took previously with the same result written on it. "I've taken two. I'm definitely pregnant. " "Well damn. " Tobias responds, breaking the silence. His dark eyes wonder over to me before flickering over to Jake who hasn't moved an inch. I turn to look at him, worrying thoughts filling my head. "Jake? " I whisper, feeling a tear slide down my cheek. It rolls onto my bottom lip and I reach up, hastily wiping it away. Jake doesn't respond for several moments, too stunned to move or speak. Eventually he murmurs four words under his breath, darting out of the bathroom and down the stairs. I hear the front door bang and his presence immediately disappears. His words continue to repeat over and over again in my head — "I need ...
A man’s word is his bond. Daphne Garza isn’t as obstinate as her elder sister. She holds her father’s decisions in high regard because he’s showed nothing—but respectable traits toward almost everybody. She strongly believes that there’s a reason behind her father’s every adjudication, that’s why she chooses to remain docile and understanding. After all, Daphne’s trying to set an example. However, her outlook on life will be put to test when she soon discovers that all is wearing their masks, leaving her to be the only one brought out into the open—and specifically exposed to a Templonuevo’s eyes. It’s an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth vendetta all over again. *************** Exposed She’s already taken [Part 1] Los Cabos, Mexico Templonuevo Undercroft December 21, 2050 10:30 PM There was no around, yet there was an overwhelming feeling inside her which indicated otherwise. She had no idea as to why her eyes felt unbelievably heavy whenever she tried to open them. It took great determination to urge herself to fight against the invisible restraints all over her body—her system. Her skin was itching with fear and anxiety, there was no doubt about it. Panic started bubbling in her chest when she had begun taking in her surroundings. The persistent gloominess that continuously dangled from each corner of the pitch-black room made her stomach upset on different levels. She was completely terrified. She did not know what to do. She tried to open her mouth, but attempting to speak did a number on her throat. It was apparently dry and hurting. She tried to close her eyes once more in hopes that everything was just an illusion as she opened them—that she was only imagining things, that this had not been happening for God knew when, but tears were undependable and traitorous. Where are you now, Father? Have you truly forsaken me? She wanted to clutch her chest. She wanted to ignore the pain. She wanted to forget the taste of self-pity. It was all mind-numbing, as though her heart was being squeezed repeatedly, forcefully, to pump blood and extend the lives of others—and not her own. A tiny sob broke past her lips when she remembered how excited she was that fateful day. I am indeed stupid, my dear sister. I am far too innocent to try and understand how our society works. I am far too clueless as to what my world faithfully dictates. And this would not happen if I only had listened to you, Father. She was admitting it. Things would never go this way if she simply followed the orders she was given. There was no one else to blame, but her. She shook her head and stared down at her limp body, a sad smile forming across her bruised li...

The Runaway Mafia Queen
Chapter 56 Epilogue
"Did you finish the process of your admission in this college?" He asked her in a low voice calmly. "Yes?" She hesitantly said after a few seconds. "You chose Economy Major?" He lifted up one of his hand and pushed the tendril that was falling on her forehead, behind her ear. She unconsciously shivered at his touch and replied in a soft tone, "Yes." "What about Hector?" He asked casually and shifted her more closer to himself. "You don't know what Hector's chosen?" Her eyes widened, "You both live in the same house. Are you both brothers or what?" As soon as the words slipped out of her lips, she slapped her hand on her mouth, surprised at her own audacity with the way she had talked to him. "I am sorry." She immediately panicked, fearing his anger, "It just slipped out of my mouth." He bent his head down and tapped his nose with hers playfully. She scrunched up her nose cutely and immediately a pink blush covered her face. Had she even realized that it had been almost an whole hour but she had no *************** The Runaway Mafia Queen Prologue and Chapter 1- Leaving the Heart Behind I stopped breathing as the edge of knife dug inside the skin of my throat. Breaking the surface and making the blood drip. “Still in love with me, wifey? ” Ethan asked, an innocent smile covering his face, while his evil eyes stared down at me. “I’m not sure. ” I replied softly and took a step forward so that the knife pushed in deeper in my throat, “But still in hate with you, darling. ” ***** Hope had a perfect life.

So she decided to run away and that's what brought her to Texas, to her uncle's home. And... to him. Max, a private investigator, lives his life on his own terms. He had a team of PI’s who were ready to sacrifice their life for each other. Who were just as dashing and daring as him and honorable as hell. The day he met Hope, niece of one of his former PI, he knew she was the one he wanted. Hope doesn’t think she is worthy of Max, and the happiness of being called his family. As her past follows her, with her mafia husband tracing her every footstep, her ex lover falling in the picture and gang animosities making her their main target, she wasn’t going to be the one to break Max’s beautiful life into pieces.

The Gang Leader's Girl
"Come on, tell me this is what you want Mia because I don't think I can keep myself away from you anymore." His voice was deep and laced with desire, his eyes searched mine for permission. I found myself nodding my head, letting him know this was what I wanted, his lips on mine. I nearly passed out when I felt his teeth pull at my bottom lip, gently biting down on it "Use your words Mia," Axel whispered. "I need to hear you say it." He groaned. "I want you to kiss me." ***** After her mother's death, seventeen-year-old Mia Morrison had been jumping from one foster home to another since she was seven.

But *************** The Gang Leader's Girl Prologue "We understand death only after it has placed its hands on someone we love. " - Anne L. de Stael ************************************************ "Mia, wake up! " Whispered a soft, hushed voice. In fact, it was so hushed I almost had thought I was just hearing things. That was until out of nowhere a loud door slam pierced through the silent hallway from the room right next to ours, creating enough force to vibrate the old wooden floors which we were laying on. "Mia! Please wake up! I'm scared! " Panic flooding the little girl's voice. I automatically knew who it was that was calling for me. "Holly, where are you? " I whispered back, trying to look through the pitch-black room. The foster people we live with don't allow us to have the lights on after 7:30. Trust me, I learned that lesson the hard way. You see, if you have the lights on after the restricted time, you'll get punished. The punishments are plainly decided on how drunk Mrs. and Mr. Rockwell were that night. On a good night, punishments usually consist of not allowed to go to sleep until they decide they worked you long enough or going a couple of nights without dinner, sometimes both. But if they start drinking the punishments become more violent. Mrs. Rockwell has never psychically abused any of the kids here but better yet she sits back and watches her husband do all the work, smiling. I remember the first time James Rockwell hit me, I wanted to drop to my knees and cry out for my mother, but I didn't. You see when you've been in the system as long as I have you learn how to control showing your emotions. Because people like James and Martha thrive on seeing you break down, they get off on it. Flashback: "Come here, you stupid bitch! " Mrs. Rockwell sneered at me. "No, I'm sorry, whatever I did wrong I won't do it again! I promise! " I begged her. "Damn right you won't do it again! " Martha laughed, the
One Year Gap
"Daada.." she slurred, and gave him a flummoxed look. "You mean the Sadeeq I know? You can't do this to me, Daada, would you? He's just 19 years old, for crying out loud. Who will take care of who? Uhm..Daada?" She wanted to bellow the words, but they came out as a whisper, as tears washed down her face. How could Daada do this to her? She thought it was all a threat. She's afraid, Daada too is adamant in his own ways. "Yes, he is. And he's the only guy I could trust with you, I know he would take good care of you. Besides, what's there in marrying him? Isn't he a man?" Daada inquired, his sturdy and adamant self taking over the benevolent and obsequious self. "There is, it's just a one year gap between us. And he isn't a man in my eyes, I see him like a ten years old boy, how would he become my husband?" She reprimanded and broke into tears. Her heart was beating vigorously, the room started spinning around her, as her eyes became glued to everywhere but Daada's face. The Love story Of Ihsan And Sadeeq *************** One Year Gap One She felt as the wave of fresh air splashed on her face while she vacantly stared at her phone. What her bestfriend sent to her had made her up the creek. She felt restless. How could she inform Daada about it? She knew he wouldn't accept it easily, there had to be many problems she would face. Ihsan looked up from her phone, with tumult expression plastered on her face. She looked at her Maama and smiled fleetingly, she knew the best way to get to Daada was by having Maama's approval. "My dear Mama, it's been long I felt your warmth," Ihsan said as she rested her head on Maama's shoulder. They were sitted in the living room. Maama looked at her and smiled, she knew whenever Ihsan acted all loving towards her she needed something from her Daada. "Ihsan my dear, how are you feeling? Hope there isn't any pain? I know you don't become so fond to me, unless you're sick or need something from your Daada," Mama spoke woefully. She wasn't close to her daughter from the start, as they were estranged with Daada when she was few months old, and she left her with him. Ihsan whined and looked up to Maama "Maama, I thought we've talked about that several times? Aren't we going to get over it? I've said it's okay numerous times. And for needing something from Daada, you're right," Ihsan confessed, closing her eyes with her palms. She knew what Maama had been thinking of, they had talked about it numerous times, she had forgave her also. Afterall, she gave her the chance to became close to Daada. "Okay my dear, then tell me what's the problem, and what you need this time around. I hope it won't thwart with you health, you know he wouldn't agree," Maama said, smiling warmly at her daughter. "I don't know how it will sound to you, but Maama please and please, don't say no, and do all you think of so he could let me go," Ihsan pleaded, making a pleading gesture with her hands. Maama cupped her hands in

The noise was so distant that it feels like they were in a closed room, the sound vibrating through thick walls. Despite that, it was clear – the band, the cheers, and those random vehicles passing by – that if they could focus enough, they could pin point whose talking voice it was. As if they were surrounded by the crowd. Of course that wasn’t true considering thousands of students being there and that they only knew a couple of people. And that they were up high to be on the common grounds. Enjoying the view, he took a beer from the cooler. Moments after, the countdown begun. “I wish next year would be the same. ” It was cold that day considering the dead air. That rain from earlier left a weird kind of cold to the atmosphere.

After drying my hair, I decided to read some books to kill the time but since I am not that engrossed with the vampire book on my bed, I just wander around our big garden. The maids are eyeing me with eyes full of emotions. Whatever, they want to be rich meanwhile I just want to be a poor rat, at least rats are free, unlike me. All the actions and words need to be filtered, all decisions coming from my parents. I want
Living with the teenage thought of life always being a bed of roses, Aisha Umar Faruk got her life damaged at the revelation of her mother being a prostitute and she was raped to pay for the crimes her mother committed. Dr. Nasir was her savior and she lived with him, having a fantasy love-filled life until his heartless brother broke apart her rope of hope and she was left with a broken heart to stitch. Being married to Abba was a whole phase for Aisha and the path she followed in knowing what had been enshrouded even before she was born. "I saw you in A&H hotels with a guy and you were kissing him, Aisha!" The kind of question that always erupts out of Abba's mouth and when she didn't answer, his belt did the work. Her answer was always she wasn't the one, but he never believed her because she was the one he saw. But she wasn't, and that called for more torture and abuse. Who was this lady adding more salt to the wounds of Aisha Umar Faruk? *************** Enshrouded One The sun shone directly on her face as she got down from the tricycle she hired. She heard the sound her stomach made, reminding her of the hours she took without putting anything into her stomach. She put back her veil on and handed the man one thousand naira note. He scrunched up his face. "I don't have any change with me, Hajia. " He didn't even collect the money and she stood there looking at him. She was at the verge of bursting into tears. If only this man knew how tired, hungry and sleepy she was. "What are we going to do then, Mallam? " She asked, looking around their area. She had no idea where she was going to get this change, and going into their house is not even the option. Because she knew her mother wasn't even around. "Won't you look around one of these shops? Or that supermarket? " He suggested, and she heaved a sigh and walked towards the supermarket. She was acquainted with one of the workers there, and she prayed he was around to save her today. She entered the supermarket and went over to the counter, and fortunately for her; he was around. "Hajia Aisha, how are you? " He smiled upon sighting her, and she smiled back. She placed her hands over the counter and rested her head on it, she was truly tired. "Bilya, please I want you to help me with some change, the rider of the tricycle I hired has no change in him. " She handed him the one thousand naira note and he hesitated before collecting the money. "I'm sorry, Hajia Aisha, but I don't have change either. But how much do you need to give him? " "It's three hundred naira. If you have it, give me please. I'll come back later for the change. " She thanked him when he gave her the money and rushed outside. She gave the rider his money and brought out her key from her bag. She opened the house and entered, as she walked directly to her room. She was doing her registration in Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, University, Bauchi state. And it was taking a toll in her. She ha...

There's really a time that you will feel happy and complete. But that moment will just remind you that every happiness will end up being sad. Doing the right thing for someone else means doing something that feels wrong to you but I guess that's just part of loving people: You have to give things up. Sometimes you even have to give them up. We cannot avoid making mistakes and that what makes us humans. We make mistakes because there is something we need to learn. Sadness exists. Mistakes happen. It is already a parcel of our life. It is human nature, but the good thing about making mistakes is that we get lessons from it. Through those learnings, we become a better person.
