At her words, Blain burst out laughing.
Leah didnâ€™t flinch at his mockery.
â€œDid you ever have any sincere feelings for me?â€ She asked.
For the first time, his eyes wavered. He couldnâ€™t answer. In tense
silence, they looked at one another, and she watched the storm arise in
his eyes, a flood of emotions that rose in a tide to devour him.
And suddenly, he smiled.
â€œI like you, Leah,â€ he whispered, with an abrupt sweetness that was
jarring. His hand stroked her hair. â€œFrom the first moment we met,
It sounded like a sincere confession. Immediately contradicted by what he
â€œSo you should have been obedient.â€ His fingers twisted in her hair
and yanked, wrenching her head back. â€œItâ€™s your fault everythingâ€™s
He flung her to the ground, his teeth bared, his hate and rage exploding.
Leah was terrified as he moved between her thighs, yanking her clothing
away with a noise of tearing cloth. In the full light of day, she
wrestled with him, fighting to shove him away.
â€œNo, get off me, donâ€™t touch me!â€
Leah raked his arms with her nails, to no effect. She slapped his face so
hard, his head rocked to one side.
Slowly, he turned to face her again, staring at her in silent menace as
she reached to cover her exposed undergarments with torn cloth.
â€œDonâ€™t pretend, youâ€™re not even pure,â€ he said coldly. As if she
were an object, not the person he loved. â€œWasnâ€™t I a fool to care for
â€œYou never cared about me,â€ she retorted.
â€œShut up!!!â€ Blain shouted furiously, and then his expression shifted
again, a sweet smile that was more frightening than insanity. Gently, he
tugged at her stiff wrist. â€œLeah, you love me.â€
His voice was forgiving as he caressed her.
â€œThat savage has confused you a little, thatâ€™s all.â€
Leahâ€™s other hand pressed painfully to her chest. Every kind word made
her heart react, a painful squeezing that was so upsetting. Faintly, she
could hear the rattling of chains, all but forgotten.
â€œTell me that you love me,â€ Blain whispered. â€œThen I will be kind
Those chains were forged from her false feelings. Her heart was beating
so fast, and she didnâ€™t want it to, and Leah thought of golden eyes.
Her excitement was for the man she truly loved. Her lips parted.
The sound of chains paused.
You can do it, you can do itâ€¦
Leah drew a deep breath, and when she spoke, she heard a snapping inside
â€œI donâ€™t love you.â€ She said it without hesitation. It didnâ€™t
matter if her heart was racing, it didnâ€™t matter if deafening screams
rose inside her mind, she forced the words out stubbornly. â€œEven if I
were born all over again, I would never love you.â€
Blain stared at her in shock.
And then he smiled.
â€œIf only you had obeyed,â€ he said. â€œI wouldnâ€™t need to make you a
There was no sanity in his eyes as he gently caressed her cheek.
â€œYou really are so stupidâ€¦urgh!â€
Suddenly the weight moved off her body and Blain floated for a moment,
struggling, before he was violently thrown away, crashing into the
garden. And the person she had longed for most was there instead,
appearing above her.
â€œTell me you love me, Leah.â€ Ishakan smiled, his golden eyes bright.
â€œAnd then I will kiss you.â€
