Debt of Fate

Ch 2: You can no longer escape [pt2]


Especially not when he had a destined partner waiting for him out there.

”Look, Richard. What you did just now- ”

”Its alright sister. I know you are confused about what happened but there is no need to be afraid or question it. I only did that to help you out so there is no need for you to lose sleep over it. ”

”Ahhh, is that so? ”

For some reason, Natasha found it hard to believe Richards words. That kiss they had shared had been anything but innocent.

But Natasha knew she should not press her luck right now. Richard had a temper since the start and even she did not know what he was about to do.

”Sister, you should get some sleep now. I will send a doctor to check on your situation now that you are awake. You should recover your strength as soon as you can so that we can get to the important part. ”

”Richard, wait- ”

But her brother was gone before she could ask him anything more. He was in and out like a gust of wind, knocking Natashas words off-balance and leaving.

Besides, Natasha could still feel the press of his lips against her own. This was a sensation she was sure she would not be able to forget anytime soon.

There was a knock at the door which finally distracted Natasha and she was relieved to see the doctor enter the room. Finally, someone was there who could shed light on what had happened to her and what was going on around her.

Natasha was too confused with what was going on and it did not seem like Richard was going to come forth with the truth.

The doctor seemed hesitant to enter the room but his eyes widened as soon as he saw Natasha sitting in the bed alive.

”Holy! So you woke up and the crown prince was not lying. How do you feel? Is everything alright? Does your body hurt? ”

The doctor covered the distance between himself and Natasha in a matter of seconds. He was right up in her personal space when Natasha pushed him away.

She was surprised to see her limbs finally listening to her and pushing the man away. It seemed as if she had regained some of her strength back by now.

The doctor looked fascinated with Natashas display of strength as well. But this time he maintained his distance from her.

”I am sorry but this is all a little overwhelming for me. Can you tell me what happened here? My mind is a little messy currently. ”

Natasha could tell that she was finally about to her answers. The doctor looked like he was hanging on to her every word as if it was a miracle.

”Of course, I can tell you what happened, your highness. It has been seven years since that date the duke tried to sacrifice you to the demon but it did not work. In the end, the emperor was the one who stepped in to save you. ”

”But he lost his life in the process. The Crown Prince asked the high priest to keep your body alive since you could recover one day and look at that. You did wake up today after all. ”

Natasha blinked her eyes stupidly as she tried to take in everything she had heard.

First of all, she could not believe that everything in her dream had actually happened but she had somehow managed to live past it all.

And also, she was surprised to know that Richard had asked her body to be preserved. Wasn he supposed to mourn her loss and be trying to get better? What was he doing wasting his time in her room?

And worse of all, why had he kissed her?

”Seven years? Then I am twenty-three years old now. I missed a lot, huh? ”

Natasha was still trying to come to terms with what had happened to her. She was scared of what all this meant for her.

She remembered what had happened in her dream quite vividly. She had been about to leave this world when something pulled her back. The feeling of hands around her stomach was still a vivid feeling that was difficult to get rid of.

It was as if the heat those hands had left behind was still clinging to her body.

”My lady, are you not going to ask the most important question? Don you want to know how you survived even after you were dead? ”
