My body froze as I listened to what they said before putting a hand on my stomach.
My heart ached, and I couldn’t help but find myself feeling as small as I did before I forced myself to walk back to my room.
To think, for one second, that me being pregnant was going to change anything. To think for ONE second that I was going to attract his attention with my baby, that we were going to get closer, that he was going to be pitying me. The man was fucking signing me off to be a slave to his mistress.
I put my hand on my lips, stopping my sob before walking toward my room. I knew that anything that I was going to say or do right now could and will affect my child, and that wasn’t something that I wanted to do. I walked inside my room where there were three maids standing, waiting for me. I looked down at my feet, and my heart ached before I sat on the edge of the bed. I put my hand on my stomach, fisting my shirt for at second before a sob broke from my lips before I could stop it, and the maids froze. My heart ached, and I couldn’t help but frown at the feeling that I had.
I screamed at the top of my lungs, knowing that it was going to be the one thing that I could do, and my chest ached in a way that I couldn’t control. The maids stared at me for a few seconds before one of them. approached me. She brought me a glass of water and I froze, staring at it for a few seconds, and my heart raced.
“What you are doing is going to affect both you and the baby.” She said, giving me the glass to drink. My chest burned, and my stomach churned. before I ran to the bathroom, vomiting the waters that I had in them. My hand shook as I gripped on the toilet seat, and it wasn’t until I felt a hand. on my shoulder as another raised my hair in a ponytail makeshift.
I moved away from the toilet seat and when I looked up, I frowned when I saw Ivan standing behind me. His eyes met mine and, I sat, resting my back against the sink for a second as I took a deep and slow breath. His eyes met mine and I took a deep breath, trying to process where I was before I got up from the edge of the floor. My heart raced, and I couldn’t help but find my tears falling from my eyes.
“You are going to hurt yourself, Aurora.” He said, looking me in the eye before helping me stand. He opened the water faucet for me, and I stared. at the water for a second before washing my face, knowing that the man would not let me be if I didn’t. “The maids called me here, in case you were wondering…”
“I didn’t care to ask.” I said, glaring at the man who raised his hands in surrender. “Why are you helping me? Are you part of their evil act too?”
“I don’t know what you are talking about or who you are referring to, but to answer your question, I told you, the child that you are carrying is my Alpha’s, and I will not allow you to be stupid enough to hurt yourself or the baby…”
“So that Charlotte can take the child, right? You are helping them…”
“You are being delusional and your hormones are playing more games than you can handle. I am going to allow you that much, and you are going to…
“I am going to nothing.” I said, stopping him. “I heard your damn Alpha talking to her in the bedroom, and I heard what they are planning to do to both me and the baby. Well, how about you go on ahead…?”
“I do not know what you are talking about, and if I am helping, I am choosing to be genuine, but if you are going to be a bitch about it; then I am going to be…”
“I am being a bitch about it? I have been dealing with nothing for an entire month but neglect…”
“Then I do suggest that you stop focusing on the neglect and start focusing on the child. Because it is either that or you lose this baby, and I doubt that neither you or Dimitri would want that to happen.” He said, glaring daggers at me as he stopped me. My heart raced against my ribcage and the man turned off the water faucet. “I am going to pretend that nothing happened here, and I am going to shut the maids up for your sake. But if I ever catch you roaming around the house or listening in on rooms, especially the Alpha’s room; you are going to have to deal with me. And if you think that Dimitri was difficult, then I don’t think that you want to deal with me, Aurora.”
“Fuck you,” I said, glaring at the man who nodded.
“I don’t fuck my Alpha’s maiden.” He said, taking a step back before walking out of the bathroom. I stood in front of the mirror for a few seconds as I listened to him talking to the maids before he turned to look
My heart throbbed and I walked to the closet to get myself clothes to wear. My heart ached, and I wrapped my fingers around a white nightgown to wear. “You need to eat to regain your strength,”
“I am not hungry,” I said, not bothering to look at the beta who scoffed. My heart ached and he walked toward me before putting his hand on the closet in front of me, caging me in front of him.
“I wasn’t asking, Aurora.” He said, making me frown. “The maids will prepare something for you, and you are going to eat it. And as I told you, what happened here will stay here. And I expect you to start acting accordingly…”
