Debt of Fate
Ch 5: Locked in [pt1]
Natasha was out of breath when her mouth was finally let go of. Her mind was a mess when she looked at the pair of golden eyes in front of her.
”Are you crazy? What do you think you are doing to me? ”
First her brother and now this man. What was wrong with these people and their obsession with kissing her? Was this some kind of a hidden camera prank that was being played on her?
And if so then she wanted to complain that it was not a funny one. In fact, it was downright insulting for her to be forced into such a situation.
”Lady Natasha, please calm down. It was not my intention of causing you distress. I did tell you that I was just returning the favor I owe you. ”
”I don want you to return any favor to me. I need you to get out and leave me alone. Just…allow me some time to gather my thoughts before you appear in front of me again. ”
Natasha pointed toward where she remembered the door to be. Her head throbbed at the news she had been made to swallow in such a short amount of time.
All she wanted to do for now was to be alone and figure out what had happened to her. Why was she not back home or in another world? Why had she been brought back to this world when her role was over?
At least I no longer have to be careful to trigger any death flags now. Does this mean I am finally free?
Natasha let her body fall freely on the bed. Her tense muscles relaxed as soon as they came in contact with the soft mattress and Natasha ended up moaning.
She froze as soon as she heard the hitch in breath coming from in front of her bed and she quickly looked up. The black-haired boy had not left her room yet and he was even staring at Natasha.
His eyes went up and down Natashas body and she instantly closed her open legs close.
”Where do you think you are looking at, you bastard? My face is up here. ”
Natasha quickly sat back up and eyed the owner of those golden eyes. She felt exposed under his searching eyes and her body unconsciously huddled together tighter.
She was uncomfortable with Sir Ahsleys interest in her body. Especially since she had not been used to being looked at with such eyes.
As a bodyguard, Natasha had been tasked to always be in the background. She needed to make sure her target was always protected.
A few people had made a pass at her but Natasha had always turned them down in favor of doing her duty and looking after her client. In the end, it had been a good thing that she had never been able to form any deep connections.
However, that had not changed even in this new world. In fact, it had stunned her growth even more in that regard.
No one had wanted to be nice to the illegitimate daughter of their emperor. Especially one that was hated by the queen and always kept out of sight.
”Are you feeling uncomfortable with my presence, my lady? There is no need for you to ever be concerned when it comes to being. I promise to always be loyal to you for as long as I live. ”
Once again, those burning gold were looking at Natasha with fierce stares. She found herself unable to look away from Sir Ashleys eyes.
He was walking closer to her and the sirens in Natashas brain were blazing in a warning. Even she knew that she needed to get away. But her body was not obeying her orders.
”My lady, please don be afraid of me. I promise that your life from here on will be full of wonders. ”
Sir Ashleys hand reached out toward Natashas face and she finally managed to snap out of her trance. And the first thing she did was flinch away from the hand reaching for her face.
Her angry eyes met Ahsleys smiling ones as they both tried to read each other. Both of them were stubborn and not willing to back up.
In the end, it was Sir Ashley who bowed in front of Natasha first. But that victory rang hollow in Natashas eyes.
”I can see that my lady is not ready to accept the affections I hold for her. Then, I will do my best to make you accept my courtship. I hope you will allow me that much courtesy. ”
Just go and leave me alone. I don want to see you anymore.
The mantra rang again and again inside Natashas mind and she was finally able to breathe a sigh of relief once the stranger was out of the room.
”System, are you there? System, answer me right now. I did as you asked me to do and I completed my mission. Oi system! ”
Natashas voice was loud and it was driving her throat dry. A small cough escaped her mouth as she called out to the one entity that could answer her questions.
But no matter how much Natasha called out, there was no answer. It was like she had been abandoned by the system. She had never been this desperate in her life before and Natasha doubted she ever would be this desperate again.
Her body flopped on the bed as realization finally sank inside Natashas mind. Her system was gone and she had no way to exit this world. She would have to live her life with an unknown fate now.
Natasha turned to her side as she thought about what to do next. But her heart skipped a beat when she felt the bed dip beneath her body.
There was an arm visible in her field of vision and someone was breathing down on her neck. The thought of the unknown terrified Natasha and she tensed up to get back at her attacker.
”I never knew sister could behave this docile. It fills me with regret that I never managed to see this side of you before. Were you hiding your real self from me when you were kids? ”
Richards familiar voice sounded wet and husky in her ears. Natasha could not help but shiver at the closeness of her brothers body to her own.
”I don think we were ever close enough to show our rue selves to each other. Besides, how can I show my vulgar and dirty rue self to the son of our empire? I would have been kill- ”
”Don say it. Don you dare even joke about it. ”
Natashas neck hurt a lot when Richard pulled her head to face him. The action had been sudden and Natasha had not been prepared to be dealt such a blow.
She was about to hand Richard a piece of her mind when her words died on her tongue. She had never seen her brothers blue eyes be this made before.
As long as she had known, her half-brother and the empires son were a happy and radiating people. His positive and light-hearted attitude was what made him the main character of this world.
Richard was optimistic and always charming. He never lost his heart and was ready to challenge the world.
That was the kind of character Natasha had been made aware of when she first came to this world. And the more time she had spent with her brother, the more she had found it all to be the truth.
And maybe that was why she had never been able to show him her real and ugly self. She had never wanted Richards light to be tainted by her darkness.
”Sister, your life is precious. Do you understand what I am saying to you? If you keep on belittling yourself like this, then I will have to take drastic measures to ensure that you understand. ”
Natasha flinched at the hard grip Richard had on her hand currently. It hurt but her words did not escape her mouth.
Her brother was too close to her body and Natasha wanted to push him away. But she was being held in place by her brothers hands which caused her to not be able to move.
Not only that, but Richard also loomed right over Natashas face and his body was too close to hers.
This is a dangerous situation we are in. If someone happens to walk in right about now, then both of us will be in trouble. I do not need to give the emperor any more reason to have me killed.
Natasha was not overly attached to her life but she did want to live a fulfilling one.
Now that the system was gone, Natashas mind was afraid of what it meant for her future. But one thing was for sure.
Natasha needed to escape the royal palace. Now that she was free, she wanted to experience her freedom. And she also felt like it was the right time to bring her to wish up.
