d of the clock and his fingers landing on the table synchronized as he waited for minutes to pass by.

When it was fully midnight, he stood again, and left his room.

Eliana sat on the floor, her knees drawn to her. It was a cold night, and even though she had thought she would be comfortable with the splendour, she found it rather unfamiliar. As if she was estranging herself from the world.

It sort of reminded her of the very first sleepover with Cole.

”Make yourself comfortable, ” Cole said as he arranged the bed. ”It might be a little cold, so I will turn on the heater for you. You can call me to turn it off if it gets too hot. ”

She nodded with a smile at his nervousness. She had actually come to check on him, and had run late. It was monsoon season, and he wouldn let her go in the rain, especially since he was too weak to drive her.

”Thanks, Cole. ”

”Don mention it. ” He left the room and closed the door behind him.

She had just kept her small sling bag on the dresser and started to check out the room when the door opened again and Cole came back.

”Is something wrong? ” She asked and he shook his head.

”I can do it. ”

”Do what? ”

”You are here and…its maddening. ”

She laughed. ”So what do you want to do? ”

He had been perfect then. The eager, earnest sincere way he loved her, and the shyness of a first time he had. It had all been like some sort of fairy tale for her.

”I want to kiss you, ” He said. ”And maybe… ”

He had said it, but she had made the first move. She had kissed him then..and gave him more. Her heart, everything he wanted.

She shook her head as if to clear it off and raised her head to blink the tears away. She shouldn be thinking of him right now. It was bad for her.

He was marrying someone else, without remorse. Without dignity.

She thought it was all a part of her imagination when she heard the door open.

”Is that…perhaps the bed you speak of? ” She immediately looked up, and Julian closed the door gently behind him.

His smile was still there, just this time twice as sinister and dark.

”Sir…what? ”

”I mean…if there really was such a beautiful, big bed in here…why would you not enjoy it? ”

”I was just… ” Her voice trailed off and she took a few steps back. There was enough space between them now for her to duck even if he decided to come closer.

”Yes? ”

”Meditating. ”

His smile grew even larger, and before she could blink, he was right in front of her, his hand firmly clasped on her neck as he held her over the window.

She instinctively grabbed onto his hand, and turned, her heart beating wildly in her chest.

”Sir…sir… ”

”Tell me how much you know, Eliana. I promise I will not hurt you. ”

She turned to him, her eyes wide. ”What? ”

His eyes grew a little cold, but his smile remained intact. ”I said…tell me what you know. No one gets hurt. ”

She swallowed. ”Is everything…okay? ”

”You know everything? ”

”This room is vacant. Just like the remaining three. ”

Julians smile grew wider and realer, and he pulled her forward, releasing her neck.

”That is a good girl. ”
