Eternal Love Part 3





It had been 3 days.


And Arnav hadn't left her side.


She was no longer closing up on him, but the damage was still obvious in her eyes.


And that fact alone gutted him, making him watch over her constantly...


The need to be close to her was now a compulsive addiction.


They had gone for another walk around, albeit, inside the castle.


And now back in their bed, they were reclining after a casual lunch.


The bedroom had now not only become their haven, but their own little fortress.


But Khushi could see him ruminating over their situation in his head...


She could see him reliving her attack, reliving her slipping away, and she wanted more than anything to ease the pain she felt responsible for...


"Arnav...Are you okay?"


Her soft words slowly began to register and shock blasted into his heart...


"Me?" he asked, his voice high...


Her eyes were wary as she carefully replied, "Yes...I know what you're thinking...and I thought...well, we need to get back to how things were...I know I am keeping you from doing things-"


Arnav quickly propped himself up on his elbow and stared down at her, his face shrouded with surprise, "Things? WHAT things?"


"I...I don't know...you're needed as Prince..." she looked nervous now and Arnav's intense gaze made her shiver as he leaned down closer...


"I'm not needed ANYWHERE other than where I am right now..."


Her voice was getting softer, her nerves showing..."But, I'm alright...I could...I mean, I-"


"Khushi," his tone was a command, "If you're going to suggest that YOU don't need me here, then listen to THIS..." He brought his body over hers, his weight pressing her down..."I need to be here for ME...I told you my obsession for you tripled, and even if you DO get sick of me, I'm not going ANYWHERE."


Blinking slowly, she whispered, "I DO need you...So much..."


His body visibly relaxed and he smiled, "I know, I always know, but you need to stop thinking other things come first to me...YOU come first to me...The moment I saw you, YOU came first to me...and now, after everything..." his eyes stung..."I need to be close to you..."


Her mind was working in overdrive, remembering the attacks over and over, her thoughts never giving her a break unless she was taken over by the power of her husband...


"Stop sweetheart, please...Stop thinking so hard..."


She saw his strained face, etched with worry and concern...


"I see you reliving it too...It just won't stop...the memories of-"


His strong hand held her face, "I know...I can FEEL what you're thinking...and the anger I feel is making me want to destroy humanity just knowing what you went through..."


The devout look in his eyes was piercing her...


"Arnav, I know that you have an outfit to command, your soldiers-"


"They're FINE." he decreed sternly. "They have Jacob. And I'm not leaving your side till there is SIGNIFICANTLY less fear..."


She lifted a shaky hand and covered it against his that was still resting on her cheek...


"Arnav, I am definitely less afraid...I have you with me...you're all I ever wanted..."


Suddenly, tears spilled from his eyes, "Khushi, I was talking about MY fear..."


Her breathing spiked, "I didn't...I'm sorry...I know you were threatened, I didn't mean to always focus on me, I know you have suffered and-"


"Me?! Threatened? Suffered!? No...No Khushi..." he wanted to yell, but he could only manage a rasping sound, "...This is NOT about me...I have never once feared for myself...never...never even feared for Jacob...Never feared for my father as he could handle himself. Never feared for my mother as my father protected her. But, Oh my God, I fear for you...I..." he squeezed his eyes shut..."If you had been..." his voice was now choking out the words, "If you hadn't returned with me..." he held her tighter..."I would have fallen on my sword, I would have ended my own life..."


He heard her shuddering breath at his words, but she didn't close up...


Throwing her arms around him, she pulled him close, her face burrowing into his neck...


They needed to hold each other.


They needed to be close.


He could hear her soft crying, even though she tried to mask it...


"Shhhh...I'm here my love..."


Through broken whimpers, she said, "I would do the same..."


He groaned and shook his head, her declaration sending stabs of terror in his blood, "No...no no no, that's NOT why I said that..."


"I would...I would!" she gripped his shoulders fiercely, pulling him into her...


"No! NO! Khushi!"


She clawed at his back, his neck, his hair, desperate to get closer...


"So YOU can die without me but I can't! I would do it! I would!"


His heart couldn't take anymore and gripped her wrists with his hands and held them firmly above her head, transferring them into one large hand and holding her face still, "You will NOT talk like this! Ever again!"


She began to shake with anger, "I will talk however I want! And I would use my last breath to say your name!"


His own heart was almost beating out of his chest..."YOU WILL NOT TALK THIS WAY!"


Feeling out of control, Khushi tried to break his hold, her actions making no difference.


She kicked and squirmed, but her movements mere brushes to him..."I will talk how ever I want!!!!! I'm the goddamn Princess! And I will protect what is mine! You are MINE Arnav! And I will do WHATEVER it takes to STAY with you!"


His fury evaporated and arousal shot through his bloodstream...


With eyes turning dark, and an expression that turned her to liquid, he snarled at her..."Yes."


She stilled, her body going languid...


"YES." he growled louder...


And when her lips parted to speak, he took over...


"YES! I am yours for fucking EVER, and you are DEFINITELY the Princess...But I'm the goddamn Prince...and I won't ALLOW you to speak that way...AND...I'm going to fuck you senseless until you realize I fucking MEAN it!..."


Khushi became incapable of thought as his lips crushed her with savage seduction...


Sliding his tongue into her mouth, he angled his head for complete access to her sweetness...


He grabbed her face in his hands and went deeper, as if he could get inside her body, her mind, her very soul, through this tangle of tongues...


Releasing her hands, he slid his arms beneath her shoulders and cradled her head, keeping her still for his onslaught...


The moment her hands were free, she entangled her fingers in his hair holding him tightly in place.


His tongue moved into her mouth with expertise and took complete ownership, branding her over and over as his, devouring her every moan...


Their kiss was openly carnal and wild.


Arnav quelled all her fears, his very being speaking to her soul that spread to her heart and body...


Grabbing her hair, he tugged gently, tilting her head up, as the sheer force of her husband's muscluar body engulfed her...


His kiss devoured her, consumed her, owned her.


Khushi began to want him so ferociously that she hurt...


"Fuck I need you..." he whispered, his soft words hitting her heart louder than any roar would...


Her answer was to pull his magnificent mouth back to hers and kiss him with all the intensity that shone from her heart...


Khushi began to shake with energy, the desperation for him turning her into a live wire...


She clung tight to his strapping shoulders, and felt him ready to boil over with wild desire...


"Arnav..." she begged..."I want you...so badly...deep inside me...I'm going to scream if you don't-"


"...who do you belong to?" his voice demanded...


Khushi moaned but instantly responded..."You...Arnav...Only You..."


And driven to the extreme, he wasn't going to make either of them wait...


Rearing back, he pulled her underwear free of her body and roughly hauled her thighs wide apart and dropped his body back onto hers as he thrust into her hard and fast...


Her scream of pleasure made him throb harder...


"Oh God I love you..." he panted into her ear...


Khushi licked his neck, his jaw, any part of his skin that she could get hold of as she revelled in the feel of him inside her...


She was desperate for what was to come...


What only HE could give...


She could feel every sensation, every part of him...


"You are my absolute EVERYTHING...You're in my blood Khushi...You're in my heart...You're in my fucking SOUL!"


He was moving with such magnitude and fervor, thrusting so far up inside her that she could hardly breathe from the sweet torture...


His arms moved and braced her hips, pulling them slightly upwards, stretching her with his fullness, and increasing the tempo...


"More...Oh GOD you're mine Arnav...and you're alive..."


Her words were threatening to break his climax into pieces, but he bit back, grinding his teeth, as he wasn't about to come until she came apart in his arms..."Absofuckinglutely, alive...inside you...my wife..."


"My husband..." she heaved.


Arnav was overcome, wanting to fuse their bodies together for life...


Sliding one arm beneath her back, he wound the other under her neck and shoulders...


She was now completely suctioned against him, her legs around his waist, her arms clinging to his back...


"This..." he accentuated the word by penetrating her harder..."is MINE. You BELONG to me! UNDERSTAND!?"


"...forever..." her voice was barely audible, but he heard her...


"Come for me..."


He ground into her and she screamed out as her climax reared up with intensity, her body obeying him instantly...


The orgasm burst through her and she was unable to hold back the cracked scream of his name...


"Fuuuuck...Khushi!"


He slammed his mouth to hers as he ejected his seed into her womb...


His arms were holding her trembling form, plastering himself onto her, their combined breathing shallow...


Their bodies fit each other, their spirits merging even as the kiss softened and their lips came apart...


"Forever..."


"mmm?" he looked down at her...


"I want to stay like this forever..." she whispered...


He smiled against her lips, "This IS our forever..."


Almost instantly he could see tears well up in her eyes and he shook his head, "No my love..."


And his soft lips began to work their magic against hers...


The soft brushes and gentle tonguing was evaporating her tears and sending soft sparks across her skin...


When he pulled back, Khushi stared up at the intense look on his face and wondered what he was thinking...


A second later, she realized she asked the question out loud...


The look in his eyes was like lightening..."I'm pretty sure the intensity of my thoughts would scare you..."


She merely blinked, "Try me..."


His large, strong hands slid up to her face, holding her tenderly as his dark gaze burned into hers, "I am NEVER going to let you go..."


And as her trusting eyes warmed his heart, he couldn't hold back the manic possessiveness that was sucking him under..."I will destroy, obliterate, and annihilate ANYONE AND ANYTHING that dares to come between us...no matter who or what they are...You have NO idea what you have created inside me Khushi...I was already capable of making armies kneel, making enemies recoil...but now?...You have now woken up more than a beast inside me...People think that having a wife has made me soft...but loving you has made me more dangerous than ever...I am capable of ANYTHING now..."


Khushi felt him and his words,she felt his warmth through her skin into her blood...


And he was so close she had no choice but to lower her lashes.


"Arnav...Kiss me please..."


His lips caressed hers, pressing one hand into the back of her hair and gently tilted her head.


Her mouth opened, inviting him in...


Emotions took her over and she grabbed his face, pressing her lips harder to his...


She demanded every ounce of passion he had to give, needing to convey how much she loved him...


When their kiss broke, her words were breathless...


"I ache for you Arnav...I have an ENDLESS ache inside my heart and inside my body for you..."


His chest started to emit a low, unending growl...


"When you aren't inside me, I feel cold...I can barely stand it when you aren't touching me...When you aren't beside me, I feel numb...Only YOU bring me to life..."


Arnav felt blood began to make his erection swell..."You better be ready for more Khushi...because I'm about to-"


KNOCK KNOCK.


Arnav's deep snarl made Khushi giggle...


His angry glare cut into her and she bit her lip, trying to supress the laughter...


"I fucking hate humanity..." he bit out...


"Arnav..."


Snapping his eyes back to hers, he saw her soft smile and kissed her quick, "I know...I know...I'm a beast..."


And her tiny laugh made his annoyance dissipate...


"Wait a moment!" Arnav yelled out as he stood up and pulled on his trousers, but left his shirt off...


He smoothed her night dress over her legs and brought the sheet up over her...


"Sit back sweetheart," he said as he arranged pillows behind her...


"Arnav?"


Leaning over, he smiled, kissing her forehead, then her cheeks...


Just as he was about to bring his lips to hers, he gave her a conniving grin and called out..."ENTER!"


Her jaw dropped and she pouted, shooting him a glare for good measure...


"Your Highnesses? How are you both feeling?" said the doctor as he strode into the room...


Khushi was still glaring as she answered, "I am a lot better...thankyou..."


"She's still shaky when she wakes up tho..." 


Even though he had taunted her, Khushi could feel the worry in her husband's voice and she smoothed her hand over his arm...


"I am a little, but..."


"It's quite a natrual reaction after such trauma...many flashbacks can appear very real...but as long as you both work through this together, remain honest, and talk about your worries, then you will recover faster...'


Arnav's expression of comand was now shining onto her, "See what he said my love? Honest. Talk. You need to tell me EVERYTHING you are feeling..."


And without thinking, she gritted out, "Well I'm feeling cross because you didn't kiss me!"


Arnav's eyes lit up as his face now beamed with pride and amusement..."Oh really? Good to know..."


A sudden blush coated her cheeks when she realized what she blurted out, but the doctor and Jacob, who stood at the door on guard, were now laughing...


"Oh...I...I uh..."


Her rosy red face was too much to ignore, and not caring whose eyes were on them, Arnav seated himself beside her, turned to face her, his hand coming up to catch her behind her head as the other gripped her waist, "Like this sweetheart?"


His whisper was brief before his mouth suctioned to hers in a deep, drugging kiss that didn't last nearly long enough...


Khushi's mind went blank as she felt enveloped by her strong protector...


When their lips parted, their bodies were still mashed tightly together...


Jacob's cough that cleared his throat jerked them back to the moment.


Arnav felt her push slightly away, her embarssment overwhemlingly apparent, and he released her only a fraction...


"I...that...that was..."


But all Khushi saw was his reassuring smile before he turned to Jacob...


"Okay Jake, tell me what you're obviously trying to tell me..."


The doctor began to take Khushi's blood pressure as Jacob walked into the room, calling another officer to watch the doorway...


Khushi smiled nervously at her husband and then tried to make small talk with the doctor...


"Arnav." Jacob grinned, trying to taunt his best friend...


"Oh shut up," he said feeling smug, "Like you don't dote over your wife?"


"I do, probably too much...but you and Khushi are something else..."


His body tightened with pride and he looked back to his wife...


"Blood pressure a little high, but she's doing better...Her concussion is gone..."


Arnav nodded, "Good." then turned back to his friend...


"So, the King has called for an emergency meeting of the high level staff. He has asked me to let you know incase you wanted to be there..."


"No."


His answer came out instantly.


"I figured, so did he. You know the Army is at your command, but Corey knew how you'd feel and has volunteered to stand in for you, and we will carry out whatever orders we can to ensure this shit doesn't happen again..."


When Arnav first appointed Corey as second in command, he'd been worried about his friendship with Jacob. 


He knew Jacob deserved a higher role than just 'best friend'.


But it had proven to be the best decision.



As Corey worked the troops and trained the officers, Jacob was Arnav's righthand, and possessed detective skills that were inconceivable.

"I think the Queen would take up the sword if anything happened to Khushi again..."


Arnav lowered his voice, "Damn fucking right. But still, it's MY reaction should terrify ALL of you..."

"Shit man, you really are scary..."


He quirked a lopsided smile, "Yeah, well...I want whoever hired those worthless pieces of crap FIRED. That's all. And that's because Khushi has begged me not to go through with my ORIGINAL decision..."


"Which was?"


"Firing everyone. Complete turnover."


Jacob's eyebrows went up, "Seriously?"


"Not YOU obviously, or Corey. OR my army. But the staff here are dispensable. My wife, IS NOT."


Arnav felt her side of the bed move and he quickly reached for Khushi's hand, his fingers entwining with hers..."What's going on?"


The doctor quickly reassured him, "I just need her to take a walk around the room so I can guage her pulse and stability..."


Arnav frowned but nodded.


As she stood up, he fought back the urge to lift her into his arms...


He now stood at the foot of the bed and poised himself as an intimidating stone wall, watching over her every move...


"Arnav? Do you need to talk? About things?"


His eyes were glued to her body, but he answered, "I'm damn on edge Jacob..."


"I know man. If I hadn't been on the other side of the county searching, I would have helped you kill him..."


Arnav was growling, "I didn't need help."


"I know mate...you're a ticking timebomb, and built like a fucking tank...you've saved her every single time though..."


Eyes now stinging with tears, he clenched his teeth..."What if i'm too late one day?..."


Jacob tapped his palm on Arnav's back, "You won't be. I KNOW it. SHE knows it."


"God help whoever threatens her again...They can threaten me as much as they like, but I will grind to DUST whoever tries to hurt her..."


Jacob shuddered, "If you weren't my best friend AND commander, I would flee this kingdom...Even Corey said you scared him, and he's nearly as ripped as you!"


Arnav smirked, and was about to reply when he saw Khushi's lower lip start to tremble...


Anger now burst out as he was at her side and pulling her against him in seconds...


"Why are you shaking Sweetheart? Doc, what the fuck are you talking to her about?"


Her hand lifted to his chest, "Arnav...shhhh..."


The doctor kept his voice careful, even though his fear was evident, "Your Highness, I apologise, but I did need to see where her mental state is at...and ask about her-"


Every muscle in the Princes neck was now rippling and straining as he snarled, "And you couldn't do it while she's seated? Or while I'M holding her!?" 


Hauling Khushi close, he felt her shaking..."Shhh...please...I'm okay..."


Arnav  detested seeing her so breakable and bit back his rage trying to calm her..."Shhh...I'm sorry...It's all okay sweetheart...shhh..."


"It's okay Arnav...Truly..."


"I apologize Your Highness, I offered to take her back to sit but she assured me she was alright..."


He took in a deep regulated breath.


"Jake is right...I'm a ticking timebomb..." 


The doctor smiled, "I understand, but I truly didn't mean to-"


"Arnav?" Khushi interrupted...


All the while Arnav had conversed with Jacob, she had overheard and begun to see just how much their lives had changed...


Her heart was clenching...


She knew how much he was now giving up to care for her.


Hearing him refuse to attend to his duties made guilt flood her heart.


He was the prince, and now he was putting her every whim first.


Everyone had now gone quiet, waiting for Khushi to speak...


Lifting her eyes to Arnav, her voice was quiet..."Can...Can I talk to you...please?"


He lifted his head, his tone was regal, "You can both give us some space."


Jacob had already headed back to the door and the doctor nodded, "Ofcourse, I'll be back in four hours..."


Arnav breathed out a 'thankyou' in appreciation.


Once the door was shut, his entire attention was on her.


"Talk to me sweetheart."


She didn't even try to conceal or wait to say what she needed to..."You need to attend that meeting."


Her words were showing that she didn't expect him to disagree, but she was in for a surprise.


His hand cupped her face and he smiled, "No."


Her gaze widened, "Arnav, you need to attend to your duties...I am fine, and-"


At once his expression shifted, "Don't you dare." he bit out...


"I AM FINE." she said louder, even though her voice shook...


"Don't you DARE lie to me Khushi..."


Cowering back slightly, he followed, shaking his head as he pulled her wrist, yanking her closer..."No. NO Khushi. It's ME...you're fucking SAFE with me...so go on, say what you want to say..."


Gathering all the courage she could, she tried to reason with him, "Arnav, alright, I am not completely okay...but you can't change your life for me, change your routine for me, cant' change-"


His hand planted on his hips. 


"Want a fucking bet?"


He stared but didn't move.


His eyes burned into hers, and she blinked several times, almost unable to hold his gaze...


There was an animal hunger inside them.


She could see the igniting specks of gold in his dark eyes...


And he moved.


Wrapping her hair around his hand, he held her still as he slowly leaned down, keeping eye contact until their mouths touched and he kissed her...


The softness of his lips were in extreme contrast to the fierce grip he had on her...that he always had on her...


As he broke the kiss, her breathing was coming hard and fast...


Arnav stared into the depths of her heart, his pupils dilated, his eyes glistening..."I know you think that you need to do this, and you're a damn angel for being so selfless, but I don't WANT this...and neither do you."


Khushi inhaled ever so softly, trying to make any tiny move..."I...I do...I know you need...need some routine back...we both do..."


His eyes were now holding warning, a haze that even unnerved her slightly as he spoke, "I don't' need anything...except for you..."


Attempting to twist out of his embrace slightly, he moved closer, pressing their bodies against each other all the more...


She began to push at him...


"You're not getting away from me..." he cautioned her...


Writhing against him, she began to feel annoyed, "You will do what you need to do as Prince! You HAVE to!"


He held back a smile, loving her bite, "I'm not going ANYWHERE."


And she lashed out, not even knowing where the energy was coming from or why she battling him...


Holding her back with ease, he commanded her gaze...


"You want to fight me, wild one?" he said, his lips curling slightly to a smile, his voice low and deep, barely a whisper...


Her movements stopped...


"No..." her core began to throb...


"You can, you know...I'll take whatever you want to throw at me..."


Her face went a dark shade of red, as she felt foolish..."I don't...I don't even know where that came from..."


He chuckled, "You're my little wildcat...and I love it...You're SAFE with me...You can say and do whatever you want, but Khushi, I won't put you at risk...EVER."


"I...I just...can we try to be normal again?"


Arnav stayed quiet as he slid his free hand along her thigh, all while their eyes locked...


When his fingers brushed her sex, she went completely still...


"We are our own kind of normal..."


"...what?" 


Khushi couldn't breathe, not when he was holding her with such fervor...


"I said, we are our own kind of normal...and this conversation.....is OVER."


That instantly broke the spell over her...


"Over?" she tried to shake his hands off her, but his grip on her was unyeilding...


"Yeah...and you squirming against me is making SURE of it..."


"I am thinking of YOU! You've had your life threatened, had to look after me, had to do all this and I'm trying to get you back to norma-"


"Go on..." he growled, his eyes holding power and humor..."Say normal again."


His words dripped with a lethal power that made goosebumps break out over her body...


"I want you to have your routine back! I want us to go back to what we were before this attack happened! I want to see you happy again!"


THAT comment completely winded him making him stagger back an inch.


"Happy!?" 


He couldn't believe she was trying to do this.


Although he could understand her reasoning, and even admired the hell out of her for it, he KNEW they both weren't ready...


"I want to be a good wife to you Arnav! I'm just a mess and bring all this SHIT into our life! I have to make you to be who you are, the Prince! And to-"


Any tenderness he felt was replaced by dominance.


By ownership.


By possession.


He locked eyes with her but this time as preditor and prey...


And Khushi was firmly cornered, caught...


"As long as you are in my sight, I'm the happiest man on the fucking planet!!! And you want me to be who I am?! Well, who I am...IS YOUR HUSBAND..."


Khushi was starting to shudder, "No, you don't GET it..."


Arnav was still, and it unnerved her...


His fingers slid out from her folds...


Suddenly, Arnav walked her backwards until her back hit the wall.


That's when he grabbed her hips instead, raised her up and reattached his fingers to her core...


She knew she was wet, her honey coating her outer lips...


He kept her there with one hand while with the other, he pushed down his pants...


Instantly, Khushi felt his erection, thick and big, sometimes too big, the bulbous head glistening with pre cum...


But he waited.


She was shuddering.


Her arousal now dripping onto his hard flesh...


"Arnav..."


Her breathy plea was all he needed to hear as he gripped her legs, widening them, setting them around his hips.


She felt him at her entrance and she sucked in air as she clung to his shoulders, "Arnav...I'm sorry...I...I just..."


"No fucking SORRY! You're a goddamn GODDESS! And I want you...so I'm having you!"


His control snapped and he closed his mouth over hers in a hard and quick kiss...


"Khushi..." he said as he pulled back, his voice a hoarse whisper as he drove into her, his full length plunging too deep, too fast...


When she opened her eyes, he was watching her...


Arnav groaned, slid out, then thrust back in again...


One hand was wrapped around her hip, and with the other, he slowly trailed up to her still tender breasts, using the tips of his fingers to touch her skin and nipples gently through the soft material...


Khushi gasped, but the pain became confused as the pleasure took over...


Her clit was rubbing against his pubic bone as his phallus was penetrating her so fast she was sure she'd split in two, but what was coming was a climax that reared out of nowhere...


As soon as his mouth clashed onto hers, her orgasm broke out over her, through her body, through her blood, through her nervous system...


The mighty cramp of pleasure clutched onto his throbbing flesh with such force that she felt him roar out a passionate growl as he emptied himself inside her...


"Holy SHIT! Khushi!"


He throbbed against her contracting walls, his eyes shining bright as he came inside her...


His voice low and deep when he said her name...


Arnav stared..."Look at me..."


Bringing her eyes back to his, he saw them flash with worry...


"You NEVER have to fear me...I'm your husband...I'm your lover...I'm your fucking protector...I'm angry because I don't want to do anything other than THIS, every day, every hour, every fucking minute..."


His forehead now rested on hers, her breathing slowly regulating...


"I want that too..." she tried to talk louder, but her vocal chords just weren't cooperating..."I do...I love you...I just want us to try and go back to how we were...I feel so lost in this endless trap of memories...please...please Arnav...please...please..."


"Shhhhh..." he crooned against her mouth, brushing contant soft kisses on her lips...


"I worry for you every day...so much...I want us to be back the way we were..."


"Shhh... Khushi...shhh.." he tried to calm her...


"Please...I don't know how to forget everything...I want us to move forwards...please..."


He silenced her quivering voice with his mouth, holding her lips captive...


As her breathing evened out, he slowly eased away..."I love you...I would do anything for you..." he shut his eyes tight..."Fucking hell..."


"Just...just small steps? A little at a time...? Like the meeting with-"


"My father?"


"Yes. The one Jacob mentioned just before-"


"I remember sweetheart..."


He went quiet, seemed deep in thought...


"Just one thing at a time, to get us back to how things were again? Please? I need us to be back to the way we were...Please...please..."


"Fine."


His quick and instant answer scared her as well as assured her...


She knew he was the Prince.


But more than that, she wanted their old life back...


Before the fear, before the attack...


"This is the way to do that right?" She thought, hoping against hope that she was correct.


But the look in his eyes was what held her in place...


His mind was screaming..."If you only knew how much I want to say NO to this...but for you? Damn it...I'll do anything..."


Arnav held her as he pulled out, and a gush of their combined liquid slid down her legs...


He lowered her slowly but her knees buckled when her feet hit the floor...


Catching her instantly, before she could even tighten her grasp on him, he pulled her into his arms once more, her head against his chest...


"I have you, my love..." 


He carried her back to the bed and lay her down gently and sat beside her as he grabbed a towel and wiped her thighs clean...


When he reseated himself beside her, she waited.


"Alright, dad is having the conference now." his voice was guarded..."I'll go for a few minutes, but I'm going to call for mum to sit with you...okay?"


Khushi smiled softly, but her heart lurched...


"I've just sent him back out to where I can't see him...oh God...no...no keep calm...normalcy...that's what we need..."


Arnav could see her worry, but if this was what it took to get her to realise she needed him, then he was going to do it...no matter how much it suffocated him.


Lifting her soft pink dress, he helped her carefully into it as he pulled his shirt on...


Ringing the bell that was beside the bed, the outer guard appeared at the doorway within seconds...


"Your Highness?"


Arnav stood tall, "Send for my mother. Now."


A salute was all the reply he gave as the call rang out.


Khushi was about to speak when her husband swooped back down...


She was sitting in the bed but he was now completely in her face, close enough to taste the excitement on her breath..."You're MINE Khushi...Remember that when you feel my come on between your legs...when your core throbs..."


Her eyes were widening, her pulse now rocketing in her veins...


"Remember that you came so hard that you couldn't even STAND...and most importantly..." he leaned even closer, his mouth touching hers..."Remember that I KNOW every part of you...and I'm coming back for more..." and his lips drank from hers, giving soft and loving kisses...


Her hands were clinging to him when the knock came at the door...


Arnav slowly pulled back, but kissed the tip of her nose and smiled, "I love you my wife...and I'll be back soon..."


Khushi suddenly felt a panic...


And Arnav could see it..."Fuck, how can I go through with this..."


Before he could change his mind, the queen opened the door and walked in fast..."Oh I'm so glad you called for me! I've missed you!"


Khushi's gaze went to her mother in law and she smiled, "I have missed you..." but her hand was still clutched to her husband's...


As the queen sat next to Khushi, she turned to Arnav, "Going to your father's meeting?"


Arnav nodded but looked back at khushi, his forehead furrowing, "Look after her..."


The queen smacked his shoulder, "You KNOW I will...now off you go, we can talk about girl stuff and you can escape it..."


He chuckled, but felt uneasy..."I'll be back...I'm not going to be long...understand sweetheeart?"


Khushi finally let go, but her eyes...they were telling him a different story...


"I WON'T be long...I swear...I love you..."


Her breath hitched, "I...I love you..."


And the steps away from her, were some of the hardest he'd ever taken in his life...



Khushi stared at the door, feeling the blood in her face drain away...

The queen noticed immediately.......


"Hey, sweetie...Did you want me to go and bring him back?"


Her brain was screeching "YES!" but she blinked a few times and shook her head, "...no no. I encouraged him...I want things to go back to how they were..."


The queen scooted forwards on the bed and wrapped her arms around her daughter in law, "Khushi, they won't be completely the same, but it will get easier. You both can grow stronger..." She felt her starting to shake..."Khushi, oh sweetie, you know he will come back if you just say the word..."


Khushi threw her arms around the queen..."I'm sorry...I hate feeling like this...I have to let him be the Prince...But...But I'm..."


Smoothing her hand over Khushi's hair, she tried to soothe her, "Sweetie, Arnav takes being your husband WAY more seriously than he ever did being prince...Anything he's doing now, he's doing for YOU...I can guarantee you that he doesn't want to be where he is right now..."


Khushi pulled back, her eyes pained and embarrassed, "Have I done the wrong thing? Oh God, I'm just...I'm not used to having people care for me, having any of this..."


"I know..." she moved slightly to the side but kept her hand on Khushi's, "But don't feel embarrased, you're very VERY good for my son...he's become the best version of himself, although," she smiled and winked, "I could do without his insane temper to beat up the castle employees..."


Khushi let out a dry laugh...


"Tell him, when he comes back...tell him what you need from him...because even though I told you that the King was overbearing after I was kidnapped, it was two years later that I was feeling that way...you're not even two months into this...and I can see in your eyes what I remember feeling..."


Khushi's eyes were growing moist, "I need him...I thought he was killed...I saw-"


"I know...those sadistic idiots...they're both dead. And GOOD RIDDANCE...but he is fine, healthy, conniving...he knew what he was doing, and it wasn't your fault that you were there, and it wasn't your fault how your subconcious reacted..."


The Queen could see how Arnav's absence was effecting Khushi...


And the memories of her own reactions after her kidnapping were now mirrored in her daughter in law...


She knew that she wouldn't last long before severe panic would take over...


Needing to change the subject fast, she quickly asked, "Shall we talk about some dessert?"


Khushi smiled, but couldn't stop shiverring, making the queen hold her closer...


"We can have a special dessert tasting menu tonight...maybe you and Arnav can both come to the dining room tonight and we can all enjoy some time together?"


Her soft hiccup and trembling hands nearly broke the queen's heart...


"Sweetie, shhhh...He isn't far, and he is returning very soon, he promised..." and the queen pulled her into her arms once more... 


No sooner had she done that, Arnav burst back into the room and the queen felt Khushi jump closer with fear in her embrace...




...................





The King sat at the head of the table.


His eyes scanning his head staff...


"I want to know EXACTLY how we came to hire Evan Patel and Lavanaya! Because of THEM, my son is about ready to go on a rampage and execute everyone here! I want answers, NOW."


The men in the room were starting to realise just how severe their situation was.


It had been years since the King had shown such force.


"Sire, The Senior Maid is in charge of hiring and she too was found drugged. When Lavanaya showed up to ask for a job, she was begging and..."


A voice boomed from the doorway..."The Senior Maid is to be fired. NOW." 


Arnav stood there like a threatening live grenade...


"Your Highness, if we could just-"


Walking in slowly, Arnav cut the man off, "Question my order Jonathan...Go on...I fucking DARE you..."


The man shut up instantly.


"That Senior Maid was the one who was ready to expel my wife when she first worked here...I wanted her gone a LONG time ago..."


The King gave a half smile that showed he enjoyed watching his son's power...


Everyone was already on edge, but now that Arnav had entered, the dynamic only became more frightening...


Their eyes were wary of the volatile prince, his bulked up body solid and thick...


He was a wall of muscle and power as he prowled towards his father...


"Corey." he nodded in acknowledgement.


"Sir. Here to cause some trouble?" he smirked...


Arnav's lips twisted on a smirk, "Shut up..."


Seating himself beside the King, he heard his dad whisper...


"So son, you managed to tear yourself away?"


The King's words made his heart hurt.


"Khushi was begging me to join you, because she's..." he closed his eyes, trying to gain a semblance of control..."She's trying to help me get some routine back, some 'normality'...Even though I don't fucking want it..." 


He raked his fingers through his hair, "But mum is with her..." 


"You know she's safe with your mother, hell, she'd about kill anyone who tried to hurt her...she's been worried sick..." the king paused seeing his son start to hyperventillate..."Arnav?"


He felt the cold sweat come over him, and he ground out, "Yeah, sorry...I'm not staying away long...I can't, or I'll murder someone for sure..."


Corey chuckled under his breath as the King smiled and said, "I remember that feeling...Okay!" he cleared his throat and turned back to the meeting of directors..."So, Greta is FIRED. See to it she is out of the castle in less than an hour. Now to whoever hired Evan..."


Arnav began to snarl at the mention of their names...


"As usual Sire, he was hired by chief of staff here. Same scenario, just a poor looking beggar desperate for some form of work..."


Arnav wasn't ready to mince his words and ordered, "He's fired. Expel him."


Dwayne, The secretary of Security spoke up, "Your Highness, he didn't know, he can be reprimanded and we can have a new protocol on who we allow in-"


Arnav bolted out of the chair, "HE IS FUCKING FIRED. And as the head of Security you should damn well agree! My wife nearly died! Too many times! It's taking all my god damn self control not to demand an entire sweep!"


The King nodded, "I agree..."


Staring dumbfounded at the King, Dwayne bit out, "What?!"


The King stayed seated and glared, "My SON is doing EXACTLY what needs to be done Dwayne..."


"But Sire-"


Arnav was now in full rage mode, "Do you have a fucking death wish!?"


"Your Highness," he was clearly becoming more and more afraid, "I'm just saying that there are other ways to counteract this-"


The Prince slammed a fist on the table, "He is FIRED. He'll get paid. He'll get a reference for another job. These are the rules. I will make sure people know just how fucking serious I am about keeping my wife and my castle SAFE."


Dwayne looked Arnav square in the eye, "It's NOT worth this drastic measure."


Hearing that, the Prince became primal.


"You're done. OUT!"


"What!?" the security chief paled, "I'm the-"


Arnav lashed forwards, "You think your POSITION will keep you safe from me!? YOU'RE FUCKING FIRED!" Arnav turned to the guards behind him, "Get him OUT!"


The King was sitting behind his all powerful son, keeping quiet, seeing twice of himself in Arnav's actions.


Corey motioned for more guards to replace the two who were dragging the man away.


The rest of the staff didn't dare say a word.


Their Prince was now the most terrifying authority they had ever seen.


He turned back to them as he ignored all pleas from Dwayne...


"I swear, if ANY of you question me, you will be expelled, or die by my hand, and if anything, ANYTHING else happens to my wife..." bitter fury dripped from his next words..."then GOD HELP YOU!"


He turned back to his father, "Deal with this. I need to be with her."


Throwing down the heavy wooden chair behind him, he stormed from the room...


Silence.


"I suggest you all pay attention to your duties, because my son there...he is your future King...some of you will remember the days of when my own wife was taken, and as you can see, Arnav is going to react far worse than I did, right Corey?"


He stood at attention, "The King is correct. You didn't see Prince Arnav when he was fighting us off...I had to summon 25 soldiers to hold him back, So if you think that you are safe, you seriously need to reconsider...It's not hard, you do as he says, and do your damn jobs..."


The King slapped Corey on the back, "Exactly, my good man."


Each of the staff merely nodded, the tension in the room could be cut with a knife.





..............




Guards saluted as Arnav passed by, but he didn't give one ounce of recognition as he marched towards his destination.


He had passed the point of how much he could handle.


The hammering in  his chest was creeping into his head and he was starting to shake at the memories jumbling in his mind...


He was SO mad. 


But more than that, he needed to hold her.


He needed Khushi.


Pausing outside their room, he clenched his fists...


"Fucking fuck...how can this have happened to her...how can I have let this happen to my Khushi..."


The memories were spinning around him, wracking his heart...


Fighting to breathe, he attempted to calm himself...


"She doesn't need to panic seeing me like this...calm the fuck down Arnav..."  he repeated over and over in his mind...


Having her close was the only way to dull the agony...and he needed her...now.


The second he opened the door to his room, he saw his wife being held carefully by  his mother...


"Arnav?" his mother asked, then tried to remain conversational, keeping her tone calm... "You were fast..."


She motioned with her head for him to come over quickly, but he had already closed the door and was rushing over...


He had seen how his sudden entrance startled her, and knowing she was still so fragile and scared broke his heart...


Khushi's eyes were begging him to hold her and the Queen slowly moved back as Arnav seated himself on the opposite side of the bed and gathered her into his arms...


The moment he entered, she couldn't help her startled jump...


But now, against the strong body of her husband, she began to breathe easy again...


"I'm here sweetheart..." he whispered against her hair...


The queen felt her own tears welling up as Arnav looked up at her, "Thanks mum," his voice lowered, "Was everything okay?..."


She smiled sadly, "We tried to talk about a few things...food...desserts...but..." her voice became hushed as well, "She's still too scared Arnav..."


He mouthed the words, "I know..."


His mother whispered, "She's trying to be strong for you...but she's just not ready...I'm glad you're back, I nearly called for you..."


His arms tightened around her..."You should have..."


Khushi hadn't spoken yet, her thoughts in complete disarray...


She knew he was there with her...knew she was safe, but the fear of impending terror was a constant shadow in her mind, and having Arnav out of her sight for a mere 15 minutes had terrorized her...


The queen touched Khushi's shoulder, and frowned with empathetic sadness feeling her jolt, "It's okay sweetie, Would you still like dessert together later? Both of you with the King and I?"


Khushi turned her head slightly, her voice small, "I would like that...Mum, I'm...I'm so sorry..."


Arnav was about to tell her not to apologize but his mother beat him to it...


"No, you mustn't keep saying sorry...I of all people know what you are going through, and you both need to be together right now...stop playing strong. You WILL be strong in time, but for now, LET him take care of you..."


Khushi nodded, Arnav holding her as though she'd break...


"Okay, I'll see you in a few hours...I love you both."


Not able to move from his position with Khushi, Arnav's words were muffled as he said, "Thankyou mum, we love you too.."


When the door shut, and they were alone, Khushi began to cry quietly...


"No..." his heart shrivelled, "No sweetheart...shhhh...I should never have listened to you..." 


Even though his voice was angry, it comforted her..."I...I wanted you to...to try and..."


"Shhhh...just hear me when I say this...I don't want anything but YOU..."


His hands were running over her back, her hair, her arms...


She took a deep breath, his touch helping to settle her severed nerves...


"Please..." she breathed.


He angled her head back and looked down into her eyes...


"Please stay with me...I can't breathe without you here...I'm sorry...I'm sorry...I can't cope...I need you with me..."


Arnav was trying to hush her again but she was rambling...


"I'm sorry Arnav...I WILL get better, but for now, please...please...I need you near me...Please..."


He was getting more concerned and more angry by the second, literally shaking with rage, pain and need...


"Say ONE more 'please' and I'm going to explode Khushi!!!!!"


She silenced instantly, letting out a soft moan when he pinned her down against the bed...


Soft hiccups of sobs were wafting out as her husband's bulky body intimidated hers...


"YOU are ALL I care about! I didn't WANT to leave you damn it!!!"


Khushi was shiverring and helpless beneath him, but she wasn't even wanting to resist or fight him...


Her husband was with her, and angry or not, he was all she needed...


His hot eyes were staring down at her as he dragged his thumb slowly along her bottom lip...


"I went because you BEGGED me to try and have some fucking routine...WHICH I DON'T WANT!!! I only wanted to be with YOU! And I fucking SHOULD have been with you! But I can't refuse you anything! I wanted to see if it would HELP you, even knowing damn well how frightened you were feeling! Do you KNOW how hard it was to walk away from you just now!?"


Khushi's heart was pounding at his words...


Tears spilled from her eyes as her body quivered...and his fury disappeared...


"Shit...fuck... no no no...Khushi sweetheart...I'm here...I love you...I love you so much Khushi, shhh..."


She was so lightheaded from his touch and his words, that she could barely breathe let alone formulate a reply, but still she tried...


He saw her lips part, but only soft pants came out...


Cutting her off, his mouth covered hers in a deep and possessive kiss.


His tongue probed and swirled in her mouth, dipping, moving, sucking...


Trailing his hand down, he ran his fingers along the silk of her panties as she arched into him...


Arnav broke the kiss and locked eyes with her..."I'm here."


"Yes..." she breathed...


And fisting her hair in one hand, he held her head still...


"MINE." he decreed as he slammed his mouth back on hers...


His wandering hand reached beneath her dress and slid two long fingers inside her as he dominated and hungrily kissed her...


Khushi's arms were clinging tightly to his arms as he possessed every part of her being...


The kiss took all the air from her lungs, but it was her husband that was making her body able to breathe in the first place...


The sharp bite from his grip kept her head in place as his fingers were now boldly owning what was his...


"Need...you..." she finally let out and he released her hair and the wet suction of their lips broke...


He reared up like a powerful lion and tore the clothes from her body...


Khushi's pulse was racing, her blood pumping hard as her warrior was there, and he was going to take her hard...


The pressure building inside her was overwhelming as he was now naked in all his glory before her...


Before she could even take her next breath, he was on her...


There was an instant where she felt the tip of his hard flesh against her entrance before he surged forwards...


And she screamed.


Her loud howl echoed against the walls as her head fell against his shoulder, her teeth digging into his skin...


"MINE. You ask...I give! You want...It's yours! You need...YOU FUCKING GET! UNDERSTAND!?"


He was holding her so tightly, letting her body adjust to the sharp and sudden intrusion...


When her head dropped back to the bed, she was blessed with a sight so soothing that she actually felt a burn in her heart...


His eyes.


His lips.


His body.


They were hers.


At her command.


Arnav groaned quietly and began to gently move his hips, letting the immense feeling slowly build up...


With every slide, he either pulled out or filled her deep, holding himself there, letting the fire inside burn in her veins...


She was gasping for air as she tried with all her strength to bring his body closer to hers...


Except there was no space left between them, they were already connected, mind body and soul...


He could feel when her insides were ready to explode...


This time there was no waiting, no demands, no pauses, no pleading...


He brought her to the peak and she climaxed into an orgasm so overwhelming it felt as though time stopped...


Arnav saw the pleasure, passion and delight on her face and continued to pump his hips...


His hot pulsing strokes inside her, branding her while it fueled the unending euphoria in both their bodies, and extending her already intense orgasm...


"I love you..."


Khushi could only manage a soft moan as more words rumbled from his chest...


"Your body was MADE for mine..."


When she finally had the fortitude to open her eyes, she saw him pinning her with an intense gaze...


"You're going to come again..."


It wasn't a question.


It wasn't even a demand.


It was a fact.


And it was approaching fast once more...


Khushi felt him grow thicker...


"I was already hard Khushi, but that doesn't compare to how I'm feeling right now...Do you have ANY idea how much you possess me?! How much you own me!? Hell, we aren't two separate people! We are ONE!"


The manic look of passion in his face was now making her heart beat louder...


His words were burning in her veins...


"So fucking good...You feel, so. damn. good...I have you beneath me...I have your body suctioned around mine...I have your heart..."


The wetness that was flowing from inside her body doubled out over his penetrating erection...


"Ar...Arnav..."


He let out a snarl...


"Fuuuck...I have your fluid flowing over me...my name spilling from your lips..."


Khushi was now clutching onto his neck with all she could as though terrified he would stop..."Keep going...I beg you Arnav...Keep goi-"


"Fuck Khushi...If this very room was on fire, I wouldn't stop making love to you...YOU are MINE and I won't stop claiming you...EVER..."


And even though his thrusts were slow and measured, she climaxed.


Her body gushing around him as her breathing stopped for a moment before she sucked in long draughts of air...


"I DEMAND you keep coming my love...I'm not NEARLY done...I'm thirsty for you...You need to come at least twice more before I come hard inside you that I'm so deep inside you not one micro part of you is without MY mark!"


Khushi could hear only him, as thought his voice were seeping directly into her soul...


Her surroundings were enveloped with him...


Their breathing united, as though they only survived on each other...


His love her her unleashed and triggered every cell in his body for the sole purpose of worshipping what belonged to him...


"You. YOU belong to me."


Her eyes were on his, scorching him, full of desire...


The heat coming from her was threatening to draw up his balls and spray out his orgasm but he bit the feeling back hard...


"We are connected for LIFE. For ETERNITY."


"Oh GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!" she screeched as another climax hit her hard, her core shooting out jets of arousal as she shook...


Arnav groaned in utter ecstasy as he buried himself painfully deep inside her...


Her hands were flailing, reaching for him, tugging, trying to pull him closer...


But he slowed, "I'm here...shhhh...I'm here...I'm not done Khushi..."


"Too...much..." she breathed, the rasping sound of her voice making his heart ache for her...


He kept up his slow thrusts, "And you'll take it...I'm here my love...shhhh..."


Just as she got her steady heartbeat back, he sped up...


In a flash, Khushi's eyes opened as she gasped...


"That's right. Eyes on me. No matter how intense this orgasm is, I OWN YOUR PLEASURE. AND YOU OWN MINE. You give me your FULL attention until your body gives out and you have no other option but to fall into my embrace and calm down! Because that's only to recharge! Once you've relaxed, THIS is going to happen again!"


Khushi couldn't reply with anything but a slight nod and a soft smile of complete trust...


And he was done for.


His hips picked up speed, his arm slid beneath her back, and he instantly felt her walls flutter around him...


"That's right my love...one more..."


Her gaze was now hazy but she was fused to him as her hips involuntarily met his every slam forwards, intensifying the slapping sound of their bodies...


Sweat dripped from his chest onto hers where it mingled with the slick moisture that coated her skin...


Their fluids entwining outside, just as they mixed inside...


He could see the look in her eyes though...


Any second she was going to HAVE to break their eye lock because she was going to come and come hard...


And it happened...


Her head tilted back, her eyes closing as her inner walls start to strangle his phallus in rapid waves...


Arnav had no more restraint as he surrendered to her enchanting spell and filled her with hot spurts of semen as she shook and tremored...


Dropping his weight onto her, he reassured her as best he could...


"Shhh...Kh...Khushi...shhh I'm...here..."


She was rooted deep inside his heart, just as his pulsing flesh was lodged inside her...


The difference was though, that his cock would be in and out, while his heart would never be without her...


"Ar...Arnav...I am more in love with you than...than I ever thought I could be...Don't...don't leave me...I beg you...please..."


His lips brushed over her neck, her cheeks, anywhere...


"I'm not going ANYWHERE...You have NO idea how much I love you...Fuck if you could read my mind I would be a lost cause...I'm already on my knees, kissing the fucking ground you walk on..."


Her breath was hot as steam against his neck as she whispered..."Hold me...hold me..."


And reaching for the blanket, he wrapped their joined bodies together and she disappeared within his embrace...


"I'm holding you...shhh..."


As her breathing began to even out, she whispered..."I'm sorry..."


If his energy hadn't have been drained, he would have reacted, but this time, he just said, "Shut up. Crazy woman. You have NO reason to say those two words..."


Khushi burrowed closer against him and his heart swelled...


"I love you...I wanted you so much..."


"That's why I cam back...God I thought I was going to go mad in that boardroom..."


She let out a tired laugh..."I'm sorr-"


Giving her a squeeze, he shook his head, "Uh uh...don't you ever utter those words...I just can't say 'no' to you...but when it comes to THIS, I'm going to...because you need me Khushi...stop being selfless...I WANT you to have EVERYTHING I can possibly give you...and if you want me with you, then I will willingly and HAPPILY oblige..."


Her smile of reply was the most beautiful thing he'd seen and he felt the bands that suffocated his heart loosen, "God you're divine..."


"...the second you left, I couldn't breathe...Mum tried to distract me, talked to me, even wanted to call you back... I couldn't calm down..." 


Arnav pulled her closer, kissing her cheeks, her forehead, trying to soothe her...


"I sent you away...I couldn't see you...I hate being this way, but-"


"Khushi," he finally interrupted, "you have been through a LOT...and the moment you became mine, which was the second I saw you, I knew that I wanted to give you ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you wanted and needed...and right now, you need me. Fuck I need YOU...I know we will get better in time, but that same need will be there, and what will make ME happy is if you just let me take care of you..."


"I...I never had that growing up...I had to do so much to survive...I feel like I don't deserve any of this.."


His beautiful princess was still half stuck in a mindset that she was lesser...


"Khushi..." he asked softly..."You're mine...forever...and If that's how long it takes to erase that feeling from your beautiful head, then I'm ready to do it...You deserve MORE than I could possibly give you and yet you won't ask for it..."


Her eyes were still dazed but she was listening to his every word...


"Khushi, do you remember what I did a few weeks after we got married? When you told me you loved to read?"


A slow smile crept over her face as she nodded...


"What did I do for you?"


She bit her lip, her cheeks blushing...


He lifted his brows, waiting for her response...


"You...you renovated the room beside ours into my own library..."


Arnav grinned..."And?"


Smiling, she continued, "And took me to every bookstore you could find to see what books I wanted..."


"And what did I do when you told me of your favorite foods?"


Her eyes darted down towards his chest...


"Khushi...look at me..."


Gazing up, he quirked a brow..."What did I do?"


"You made sure they were on the menu every week..."


Arnav kissed her nose, "...and who's idea do you think it was for you to furnish an entire room?"


Her long lashes brushed her cheeks as she blinked in surprise, "...it...it wasn't mum?"


"Well," he winked, "...she agreed to take the credit for it...but it was my idea when I heard you say that you'd love to draw and design rooms..."


Her face was pink and her smile constant now, and Arnav couldn't resist.


Kissing her lips gently, he lingered, "And when we went walking in the garden down by the river, not long after we were married...you pulled me against your gorgeous body and begged me to make love to you...and what did I do?"


Swallowing hard, her face was now flaming red, her muscles pulsing with arousal...


Drawing her body onto his, he sat up with his back against the headboard, her legs now straddling his pelvis..."What did I do Khushi?"


Her hands now rested on his bare shoulders, the muscles taut and tense beneath her fingertips..."You...you..." her words stopped as she gasped...


He kissed the corner of her mouth, then her lower lip until he slipped his tongue into her mouth for a delicious kiss...


They kissed slowly, bodies pressed against each other...


As Arnav eased back, he kept his gaze on her...


Her eyes grew wide with surprise as she felt him growing hard against her stomach...


"You remember what I did as soon as you said that you wanted me...?"


Arnav began lifting her, his hands under her bottom, rubbing his thick cock against her folds...


"I pulled you to sit beneath a tree, brought you over me, and slid into you..."


Khushi could feel her arousal starting to drip down onto his flesh and he groaned...


Gripping her hips, he positioned her above his erection and guided her down...


When he was almost all the way in, he paused as she caught her breath...


Her palms were now clinging harder to his shoulders as he leaned forwards and spoke against her mouth...


"You remembering now my love?"


And as she was about to answer, he forced her all the way down...


Khushi shrieked into his waiting mouth...


He felt bigger as her muscles clenched tightly around his erection, her deep breaths showing how she tried to adjust to the feeling of utter fullness...


Arnav growled and ran his hands up her torso cupping her breasts, gently thumbing her nipples...


She now moaned, automatically making small rocking motions with her hips...


"Khushi..." Arnav rasped...


She met his gaze..."I could never forget..."


With hands clasped to her waist, his fingers splaying across her bottom, he began a slow rhythm of rocking and rotating...


It was exhilarating to feel the strength of his body against her, to feel his pectoral muscles flex under her fingertips but even better was the look in his eyes as he watched her on top of him...


The hunger and admiration mixed with pure and intoxicating love was heady...


Arnav's chest heaved under her palms, his breath coming faster as he started thrusting upwards, driving himself into her harder and faster...


Khushi was now crying out over and over...


Arnav held her steady wih a bruising grip and thrust faster...


There were no words.


Khushi threw her body against him, riding through her orgasm as she felt Arnav tense beneath her and release into her with a low moan...


Khushi shivered helplessly on top of him as she came down from her high...


She slumped onto his chest and pressed her lips to his...


His heart pounded agasinst her breatss.


He slung his arms around her back and pressed her against him tightly...


"I won't lose you." he growled...


"You won't...ever..."


Holding the back of her head, he carefully moved her back to see her eyes..."I love you..."


Blinking slowly, she whispered..."I love you...forever..."


Taking a contended breath in, he gathered her closer on chest as his cock softened within her..."What do you want now my Princess...?"


He could feel her smile against his neck...


"Can we stay like this...then meet mum and dad for dessert?"


Arnav chuckled, "I'm definitely going to have to eat something...you're my entire workout routine..."


Her girlish giggle made his heart skip...


"I love your laugh...every single smile and laugh makes me want more..."


She pressed her hands against his chest and tried to sit up, but he held on..."shhh...you wanted this...you're getting it..."


"But, you're hungry..."


"Nothing is worth more than this..."


Looking up, she smiled and his heart nearly exploded...


Every time that he loved her out of the darkness, she bloomed...


And when she smiled at him with her eyes shining, he could barely breathe.


He felt drunk on her, addicted to her smiled and laughed and love...




................




"I am actually excited..."


Arnav grinned big seeing her happy..."Good! And knowing mum, she's going to have a ridiculous amount of dessert ready for you..."


"Us..." she replied, holding onto his arm..."I know how much you love chocolate..."


He kissed her quick and they walked arm in arm to the bedroom door.


Arnav paused...


Khushi looked up with quizzical eyes, "Are you okay?"


Her frown quickly kicked him in the heart and he wrapped his arms around her tight.


"Ofcourse I am my love," he assured her, "I just...I don't want to leave our room..."


She giggled, "I don't either, but as long as we are together-"


He swept in and slammed his mouth on hers only to pull back just as fast, "I'm not letting you out of my sight...ever again..."


Instead of pushing for him to react differently, she flung her arms around him, nearly ready to cry...."Thankyou..."


"Hey..." he whispered into her hair, "You're mine...my wife...the love of my damn life...you DON'T thank me for this..."


When she looked up into his eyes, he saw the light that started to burn in her eyes once more...the spark that he thought was gone...


"Damn it..." he rubbed his hand along his chin as he took a step back, but keeping his grip on her wrist... "we need to get out of here..."


Khushi's expression turned darker, "Why?"


His phallus quickened, and he mentally questioned how he ever survived before her...


"We need to get out because of that look in your eyes right now..."


"What look...?" she asked on a breath, but the heat in her eyes didn't dissolve...


"That look. The one that is going to get you thrown back onto that bed and coming so hard that you're no longer able to function without my cock inside of you..."


Her mouth opened, and a soft, stuttering sound came out as she kept looking...


"I warned you..." he growled and pulled her against him.


But on cue, their door burst open...


"I figured you'd both be hesitant of leaving your little fortress here," the queen exclaimed boldly, "So! I have brought Jacob, and several guards here to escort my beautiful son and daughter in law to the dining room."


Arnav was close to boiling over as his unsatisfied desire simmered in his blood..."Mum...you have the WORST timing..."


Khushi's face flamed as she laughed as quietly as she could..."Thankyou mum..."


Llinking arms with her mother in law, Khushi walked out the door with Arnav close on her heels...


Jacob sidestepped to catch up with Arnav, "Hey, she's just in front of you mate...and your dad is right from earlier, your mum would kill anyone who tries to hurt her..."


Jacob was soon met with the Prince's angry eyes and his footing faultered, "Seriously, am I in any danger from you? Do I need to employ Corey as my bodyguard?" he smirked...


Arnav finally let a smile tweak at his mouth, "No Jake...just stay close..."


"Yes Sir." 


They entered the dining hall, and Arnav and Jacob nodded in acknowledgement, he pulled on Khushi's elbow and dragged her to sit next to him...


"Do you think it's good for Arnav to eat too much sugar? Maybe he should skip dessert as he's already hyper enough?"


Arnav scowled at his mum, "Really mum? If you think I'm giving up an opportunity to eat chocolate cake you're gonna a bigger army to stop me..."


Khushi was smiling non stop now, and Arnav was finally feeling a weight lifting off his shoulders...


"Well alright then Mr. Grumpy...I won't tease anymore..." his mum said with a smile


"Say more." Arnav blurted out...


"Huh? My son wants more teasing?"


He glanced from the queen back to the princess, "For this smile..." he touched Khushi's cheek, "On this face..." he pulled her gently closer and touched his lips to hers..."You can say whatever you damn well want..."


"Well well well," the King said sauntering in, "I either walk in on your mother's non stop chatter, or my son's non stop romantics..." 


He sat down beside his wife...


"Josef, our son seems to enjoy the teasing tonight..."


The king smiled at the queen, "Since when have you stopped even if he DIDN'T enjoy it?"


Khushi was starting to grip Arnav's hand beneath the table...


"Are you okay?" he said with worry lacing his voice...


"I'm feeling.....happy..."


He lifted her tightening hand and kissed it, "Then don't squeeze so tight, relax...I'm here...and..." he looked up, "So it seems is the biggest array of cakes on the planet..."


Arnav watched Khushi's face light up as her favorites were now in front of her...


"Oh my!" 


The queen beamed, "See! I know the way to her heart..."


Arnav felt jealousy, but gave a laugh, "You know the way to her sweet tooth mum..."


"Ha, someone's is jealous..." the king chuckled...


Khushi decided to kick back and try to relax, enjoying the evening with her family...


"Family..." she thought... "This wonderful family...taking me in, trying to make me happy...me...I thought I was nobody...I was nobody, and now...now these precious people have come into danger because of me...am I bringing this danger?"


And as always, Khushi had spoken out the last question...


"You sure as fuck are NOT!"


"Arnav!" his mother cried, "Language! What are you-"


Turning to his wife, Arnav held her face as calmly as he could, "You are NOT bringing any danger...YOU are not to blame Khushi...understand?"


"Arnav." the King used his commanding voice, but Arnav hadn't even moved an inch, "Arnav,"


He finally looked up.


"You need to try and understand from her side...I have been where she is...I have shared the servants mindset..."


Khushi finally looked over to her father in law, "I apologize-"


"Stop apologising sweetie, please" the queen's eyes were kind..."you are a gorgeous light in this family, and yes, you ARE family..."


The King continued, "I know you are still thinking back to the life you lived before, but you need to know that the way you were treated, was harsh. It was no way near how we treat our employees, or how servants should be treated in general. You had bosses and owners who were cruel, Khushi. It is not the way anyone should live."


Arnav was clenching his fists, the anger inside him growing more and more...


"Son, calm down."


His eyes hit his fathers, "How can I calm down?"


Khushi now felt evven more responsible that there was tension once more so she intervened, "By having some more cake..." and she picked up a big spoonful and shoved it into her husband's mouth...


Arnav's lips were now covered with chocolate icing and his eyes were wide as he chewed on the cake...


The queen and king were now laughing out loud, loving the sass from their Princess...


"That's more like it!" The queen said almost out of breath, "You remember when we were gardening and we turned the hose on them?"


"Oh my yes!" Khushi giggled, "That was so so funny!"


And father's and son's eyes locked as the women began to talk.


The king blinked and nodded mouthing the words, "Things will heal..."


After two hours of cake, coffee and chatter, Khushi yawned...


"I think my body is catching up with actual time...I'm finally tired at night once again..."


Arnav took her hand and kissed her palm, "You couldn't help the last few months my love..."


Shaking off the memories, she leaned into him, "I loved this tonight...so much..."


"Well if cake were a decent meal we could do this every night..." the queen piped up.


Khushi laughed, "Oh no I couldn't...I'd feel so sick..."


The queen lifted her brows and smirked at her son, "See! Too much sugar makes you sick!"


Arnav lifted his hands, "I was 11 mother!!! All Kids think that chocolate is a sensible diet!"


"Fine fine...but you were a grouch for a whole month because I denied you chocolate..."


Khushi laughed and yawned once more...


"Okay, time to say goodnight..." the King said standing.


"Agreed. Maybe tomorrow we can pick some flowers?"


Khushi nodded, her smile still glowing, "I would love that..."


"Well expect me to tag along...she isn't going anywhere without me..."


The queen groaned and the King laughed at the memories from their own past...


They all walked towards the door to the hallway when Khushi pulled him to a stop and turned to her in laws...


"I love you both. So so much..."


Unable to hold back, the queen pulled her into her arms...


The King rubbed his palm over her back, "We love you too..."


When the queen released her, she kissed her forehead, "You're such an angel..."


Khushi turned back to Arnav who was about to speak when her eyes widened and her skin turned pale.


Pulling Khushi behind him, he spun around...


Arnav looked up and saw the former Chief of Security and two of his men standing before them.


A few steps away, two of the castle officials stood looking guilty and nervous..


The king was the first to speak, "Is there a reason these gentlemen are here?"


"Your Majesty," the staff supervisor spoke up, "Dwayne insisted to speak to you, and was causing a huge fuss downstairs..."


Before the King could reply, Arnav cleared his throat...


"Jake..." he commanded, and Jacob, who had been standing guard at the door, was beside him in an instant...


The queen instantly held onto Khushi, knowing it was now time for the King and Prince to show their true faces...


Arnav gently kissed Khushi's lips as he whispered, "Everything is fine my love..."


And he turned away as his mother wrapped her arm around his wife...


The King took his place beside his son, staring down hard at the men before him...


"Now." Arnav's voice took on a completely different tone, one that was NOT to be messed with..."Why are you back, causing a scene, in my castle?"


The former chief bowed slightly and spoke, "I am here to discuss my position, now that the Prince has calmed down..."


The King saw Arnav's eyes flash with a brutal light...


"Dwayne, my son fired you...you didn't lose your house, land, wealth...you shouldn't be here..."


"I demand my job back."


Watching him intently, wary of every movement, Arnav stated simply, "No."


Dwayne straightened, his hands animatedly waving, "You don't know what you're doing! So, I DEMAND REINSTATEMENT!"


"Sire, Your Highness," The staff supervisor spoke up, "I apologise profusely for allowing them inside, but as you can see-"


"You did the right thing," the King said, "This isn't your issue to deal with..."


Arnav was growling, "Exactly. It's MY issue. And I'm giving you your last warning..." he stalked closer to Dwayne, "You are to leave...now. Take your puny men. Go back to your wife. Or you lose EVERYTHING."


A sickening smirk covered Dwayne's face, "YOU are so blinded by that wife of yours...you'll soon see that you're an idiot to fire me! I've worked here for YEARS!"


Arnav stood taller, his broad chest muscles rippling beneath his shirt, chuckling a sinister laugh, his voice was frightening as he snarled, "Now you use my wife against me? So you DO have a deathwish..."


The former staff official tried to ready his stance, "You don't get to ruin YEARS of my work in this castle and kingdom for a worthless woman who-"


A loud growl halted his words...


"You now INSULT my wife?!...Do you have ANY idea of the danger your in now?"


The queen felt Khushi's shiver and piped up, "Oh, you're a dead man..."


She held tighter to the princess who was panting...


Arnav didn't turn, but could hear her panic and his head turned slightly towards her..."Sweetheart...Everything is fine...breathe..."


The King was in awe of Arnav's control...


Jacob stood close in front of Khushi, awaiting any order from his Prince.


Treading forwards, Arnav could see the man start to shake as he said, "Get, the fuck, out."


Before Arnav could say another word, Dwayne pulled a dagger from his jacket and tried to attack...


"Arnav!" Khushi screamed and took a step after him only to be stopped in her tracks by Jacob as she got her first glimpse of her husband in warrior mode.


Arnav disarmed the man with a brutal chopping motion and she heard something inside the man's body break.


Dwayne dropped to his knees with a scream as the two guards he had brought with him rushed forwards...


Arnav kicked Dwayne savagely in the face, which made the fired chief tumble backwards...


His focus now on the guards, he executed and uppercut punch and harsh hook punch...


There were sickening crunches as one man hit the wall, crumpling to the ground leaving a gruesome red stain as he fell, and the other was on his knees groaning, clutching his gut...


Her husband had complete control over the situation not needing any intervention...


And as her eyes darted around the room to the officers who stood there, they seemed emotionless as to his actions...


As though this wasn't new to them.


Proving how capable the Prince was as a protector and soldier.


His words soon brought her back to the moment...


"You now lose EVERYTHING."


"NO!" Dwayne's voice was groggy as blood dripped down his chin, "How DARE you!"


Arnav lifted the heel of his boot and slammed it into Dwayne's stomach, "YOU. LOSE. EVERYTHING."


"You're a fucking fool! She's a worthless SERVANT!"


Those two words hit Khushi straight in the gut...


She let out a sob that Arnav was powerless to ignore.


Spinning around instantly, he hurried to her side pulling her from his mother's embrace and holding her close..."No Khushi...his words mean NOTHING..."


Jake motioned to other guards and suddenly there was a wall of security around them in seconds...


"This IS all because of me...I've caused this..." she began to break down...


Arnav's fury and anger were growing but he reined it in, "No my love, no...shhh..."


Not willing to have her believe her statement a moment longer,  Arnav turned to Jake, "Throw them in the fucking jails!" and he lifted Khushi into his arms and disappeared down the hallways...


The queen had heard Khushi's broken words, and she turned to Dwayne...


She ran forwards and slammed a clenched fist into the man's face..."You ASSHOLE! How long have we known you!? And you repay us this way!? You want to talk 'SERVANT'? You not only insulted my daughter, but MY HUSBAND, your KING!"


The King had already wound an arm around his wife's waist and hauled her to the side, "Calm down Tiger, Arnav has handled this..."

She glared at him, "He insulted-"


The King smiled and kissed her hard, "I love you for defending Khushi and I...Now hush, and I'll put that mouth of yours to better use in a moment..."


Linking hands with the queen, the King took a step towards the three men on the floor, now on their knees...


He looked to his guards behind them and nodded.


"No! NO! Your Majesty you can't!"


But the King's eyes were blank, his face showing no mercy as they were hauled from the room.




....................




Arnav's heart was stuttering as he rushed towards the nearest room he could find...


Guards patrolled every inch of the castle and he needed to get her alone...


Her words had shattered his heart...


"Open!" he yelled at one officer and the man instantly threw open the door he was barraging towards...


Kicking it shut with his foot, she jerked against him, the loud noise hitting her senses...


Like a lion leaping into action, he placed her down.


She didn't have time to stumble as he pulled her roughly against him and then his mouth was on hers...


Her back hit the wall and she surrendered to what was happening and kissed him for all she was worth...


He pulled her knee up over his hip, stroking the back of her thigh.


She tried to remember to breathe, but when he leaned into her and she felt the hardness between his legs against the softness of hers, she forgot...


"I'm going to have you. Right here. Right now."


"Yes..." the word came out in a hiss as she realised where they were...


One of the random bathrooms on the lower level...


Marble tiles, double sinks, white curtains...


"Yes what?!" he pushed against her, taking her hands that were in his hair and pulling them above her, pinning her to the wall as he kissed her neck...


"What do you want Khushi? YOU...What do YOU want?"


He may have the control, but he was at her command, and he wanted to give her everything she wanted...


"Take me..."


She said it so softly that had he not been so close, he'd never have heard it...


"Say it again...but OWN it. I'm YOURS. You want me? You TELL ME!"


"Take me!" she screamed...


He let go of her hands, his fingers brushing past her breasts to her waist, where they pushed her down against his erection...


"You, my love, have ALL of me...THAT'S how powerful you are...and now, I'm going to have all of you..."


With that, he hitched her up and carried her to the sink.


He balanced her on it as he kissed her, grinding between her legs and driving her higher and higher with need...


Yanking up her skirt, his lips were on hers and she didn't have a second to breathe before he positioned himself above her...


His trousers were now open, his thick arousal now resting on her enorged clit...


Before she could speak, he slid into her core, her walls and tissues stretching as he thrust...


Her lips parted and he silenced her by shifting her hips and pushing forwards even more...


He found every space inside her to fill and drove into her hard.


They were eye to eye, bodies moving together, the swell of exquisite tension growing...


"You're so beautiful..." he said, his eyes locking hers...


Needing to take her harder, he lifted her body and pushed her against the tiled wall as he penetrated her over and over...


"I'm going to fill you...so completely...you will never be free of me...of ANY part of me..."


Their breathing was echoing around the small room as her whimpers and cries became louder...


"Don't hold it in Khushi...I want to hear you..."


The swirl of feelings increased until her limbs stiffened and she put her face in the crook of his neck to stifle her cries as she orgasmed around him, drowning in the power of it...


Arnav, however, snarled..."I told you I wanted to hear you!"


He thrust hard with a grunt then a groan.


She felt the pulse at the base of his erection on her as he stretched core...


And her strong husband's flesh spurted inside her as he climaxed, continuing to push into her until there was nothing more to come out...


"Arnav..."


His fingers gripped her tight..."Every room."


She was still dizzy with pleasure but she frowned, "Wh...what?"


"EVERY. ROOM."


Letting her slide down the wall, his cock slipped out of her and she felt his sticky cum drip down her leg...


He reached for a towel and she expected him to be rough but he gently wiped her folds and legs dry...


She was shaky and he held her carefully...


"Arnav?"


Khushi began to feel wary...


But he held her chin and brought her gaze to his..."I'm going to have you..." he leaned closer..."in every room..."


She laughed nervously and elbowed him, but he caught her forearms and pressed her back against the wall once more...


"...if I checked, I bet you're wet again...my wife..."


Her full blown shudder was the opposite of what came out of her mouth..."It's late..."


He could see pain slipping back into her expression...


"Lets go to bed-"


Without hesitation, he kissed her savagely, prying her mouth open with his tongue.


Finally he pulled away when they had to breathe, and they stared at each other panting...


"I'm going to have you...in EVERY room, and then maybe you'll see how powerful you are! How much own me! How much you own this castle! And how much you OWN this life AND the title of Princess!"


His wiry muscles shifted and pulsed.


The satin sheen of sweat on his damp shirt brought out every muscle and tendon...


"I just..."

"No. You ARE the Princess. YOU are worth more than ANYTHING."


Feeling completely overwhelmed and undeserving, she bolted past him, opened the door and ran...


She didn't get far before she was grabbed and pushed through yet another door...


Starting to struggle, she cried, "Let go of me!"


"NO."


Khushi clawed at his hands as they fondled her easily, lifting her skirts once more, tracing her thighs and backside...


The flood of arousal that came over her was almost painful...


"Let...let go..." she said close to tears, the words he had said about her too much for her to accept...


"Next time you tell me to let you go, you're going to be in for a big surprise..." he snarled 


Spinning away from him, she came face to face with the tall glass window in one of their lounges...


She hadn't realized how far he'd pushed her into the room...


Arnav took a long step forwards and she was now pressed up against the cold glass.


"Stay still..." he ground out...


She began to move and he caged her in with his hand on either side of her...


Leaning into her body, he whispered against her hair, "Your Highness...Stay. Still."


The hairs on her neck were standing on end, the nerves in her body completely alight...


"I'm...I'm not what you say I am..."


Complete fury at how unjust her life had been swarmed his blood...


Yanking up her skirt, she saw his reflection in the window looking straight at her...


He wound one arm around her chest as he held his hard phallus and positioned himself...


"I'm going to fuck you so fucking hard that you'll damn well have NO CHOICE but to believe me..."


He wrapped his other arm around her waist and pressed his palm on her stomach...


She had made him angry.


She could hear it.


But it was anger at the misguided perception of herself.


Ramming inside her with animal intensity, she cried out...


Not because it hurt, but because of the way he did it, the raw physical pleasure it created...


"You are worth more than anything...anyone...you are my Princess..."


His arms constricted as he jammed his thick flesh into her over and over...


Yanking her torso further up, he pressed her harder into the glass...


"Look at you..." he grunted at her reflection..."You're so fucking gorgeous...that face...I want to see that face when you come..."


Her body was unwinding, the pressure becoming too great, too much...


"Arnav...I...I can't..."


He continued to penetrate her core from behind as he spoke...


"Since the minute I saw you, I've wanted you...I wanted you because you were so damn fucking beautiful that I couldn't breathe...then I knew your heart...your mind...your SOUL...and I knew that I possessed the most incredible treasure in the universe...YOU..."


His words accentuated his thrusts...


"...no...I'm..."


"YES."


Her skin was on fire...


Her core growing wetter and wetter as he slammed inside her...


"I want to see you now as you lose control...I want to see that look on your face, the one when you forget everything else, and all you know is my name..."


Arnav penetrated her harder, faster, harder, and she lost herself...


"Arnnnaaavvvv...." she gasped on a groan that turned into a long keening moan...


He put his hand under her chin, holding her throat steady and careful until her vision was filled with him and their eyes locked in the glass reflection...


She opened her mouth, but nothing came out but whimpers...


Her lungs constricted around her heart, and her joinst stiffened.


She was held up securely by his flesh and his body...


And his arms bound her to him as she came watching him...


His climax reared up as his eyes shone heat into her as his body shot her full of his semen...


Keeping her close, he pulled her back to relax against his chest...


His hand still resting on her throat, he gently turned her face to his...


"I love you...don't run from me...because I won't give up...I'll always come after you...you can NEVER escape me..."


Her eyes stung with tears and he gently wiped them away..."I don't want to run...I...I'm so sor-"


"No, my love...just tell me you love me..."


She hiccuped slightly, "I...I love you..."


"Now tell me your my Princess..."


Her lips parted, but she was silent...


"TELL ME."


"I'm...yours..."


His eyes were growing harsher...


"You better say it..."


But all that she could think of was how small she felt, how much pain she had brought...


The way he was looked at her now was like he heard her thoughts and he pulled out of her fast and hoisted her into his arms once more...


Seating himself on the small couch, he pulled her flush against his body..."You know who brought the REAL pain Khushi!?! The people who SOLD you! The man who BOUGHT you! And the cunt and asshole who attacked you! YOU didn't do this! Can't you fucking see that!?"


Her eyes were pouring out tears, and yet she hadn't blinked once...


Arnav rolled her over and crushed her under his body.


He grabbed her hands, pinning them over her head.


His mouth collided with hers and he pressed deeper into her lips as he sucked on her tongue and lapped at the roof of her mouth, pulling instant moans from her throat...


Her legs were already spread wide and her breasts were pressing onto his chest...


But it was their scent.


Their mingled scent filled the room.


Her bare core was still exposed and he could FEEL the heat coming from it...


But Khushi's mind was in a complete fog...


Every time she came close to feeling broken, her husband, her prince, invaded her space, her emotions, her entire world, and took over.


He hovered above her, pressing the tip of his ever hardening cock against her wet entrance...


And her eyes opened wide, "Again?"


His eyes shone with a devious glint, "You think I'll EVER get enough of you?"


He could see a mixture of hazy ecstasy and worry pouring out of her eyes as she said, "...you do this for me..." she said almost disbelieving, "for me...every single time..."


His hard flesh twitched agasinst her dripping heat...


He planted his herculean arms beside her head and sank into her, his eyes keeping hers captive..."yes, because you're MY PRINCESS...forever..."


Pulling out, he plunged back into her and watched as her eyes widened...


His lips curled into a grin as she shivered...

"Oh, I love the way you shiver for me..."


That small little action gave away her extreme need for him...


"Hold onto me sweetheart..."


The second she wrapped her arms around him, he set a relentless pace...


He didn't give her time to think or breathe as he sank into her body...


His flesh was harder than steel, feeling at home inside her as he slammed against her walls...


He ground his hips against her clit, watching her jump as she moaned out his name...


Cupping her neck with one hand, he used the other to lift her boneless body up underneath him as he surged into her again and again, slowly and deliberately...


Marking her.


"You are my Princess..." he whispered, and she nodded, her eyes glazing over...


"Then say it."


She shook her head.


She knew if she said it, she'd start to cry hard...


"Say it, my love...Say you're my Princess as your Prince's flesh is buried deep inside you..."


His phallus flexed deep inside her and she groaned...


He kept it up, keeping her on the brink of a massive orgasm until she grabbed his face and stilled him...


"Enough..." 


She licked her lips as he pressed into her and onto her and somehow, right through her...


"I love you Arnav...and I am your Princess..."  


He stared at her for a moment, his eyes dark, his lips swollen and wet...


Any second, he knew, she was going to burst into tears, and he was going to stop it.


Crashing his mouth to hers, he kissed her, an all consuming declaration that she was HIS.


Tears now disappearing, she opened her mouth like she opened her heart...


Hitching one of her legs up further, holding her secure at the knee, he surged into her...


"Yes...Oh God...no...oh no...I can...It's too much...No..."


He heard her...


He saw the panic and pleasure in her eyes...


And he didn't stop.


"That's right..." he growled...


She was shaking her head, the new climax that was stampeding towards her was mighty and terrifying...


"I...Ar...Arnav..."


He kept up the maddening pace and spoke against her lips..."YOU. GET. NO. SAY. I'm not stopping..."


And it build to the point of no return...


Her body conformed to her husband's will.


Her orgasm grew in the form of a muscular ache that was so deepseated she couldn't stop any reaction that her body gave...


The noises she made almost sounded like she was in pain, but she was far from any form of agony...


The way her tunnel constricted and milked his thrusting and penetrating cock was reducing her to nothing as sensation upon sensation sucked her further under a blanket of suffocating ecstacy...


Arnav wanted this feeling to be embedded into to her soul, and he wasn't going to stop.


He forced his flesh deeper into her as her muscles and squirting fluid tried to push him out, but he held her down and redoubled his attack...


"FUCK! Yes! Come for me! My Princess!"


This orgasm tore every bit of pleasure that was humanely possible from her every nerve, her every cell making her groan with wanton abandon until she locked eyes with him once more, feeling his penis thicken and his come fill her still-spasming walls...


And she fainted.


Arnav held her in his shaky grip...


He tried to catch his breath as he stared at the completely stated woman beneath him...


Pressing his mouth to her moist, wet lips, he spoke, "I love you, Khushi..." his fingers slid up and down her arms, over her face..."I love you so much I can hardly breathe..."


Needing to hold her, and still calm his own nerves down, he stayed inside her, peppering kisses over her shoulders, her neck, her face...


Soon his eyes grew dark, "I won't ALLOW anyone to speak that way to you...You may have started life thinking you are lesser, but there is no way in hell I will allow you to keep thinking that way..."


He licked her lips and finally let his flesh slide out...


Their combined fluids now dripped from her sheath and his chest swelled with pride...


"I'm not cleaning this one up my love...that's is there to remind you when you wake up, just how much you own me...and how much you belong to me..."


Pushing up on his arms, he felt the burn in his muscles and laughed slightly...


"No army routine can even come close to how much workout I get from you..."


Pulling on the afghan rug that was draped over the couch, he wrapped it around her gently and lifted her into his arms...


He could still see the tears that had dripped into her hair and barely dried around her eyes.


His anger blasted at Dwayne, and he already knew he wanted to kill him.


But right now, he was where he needed to be, and he wasn't going to leave her.


The bright lights of the hallway were now making him blink, but he strode purposefully towards their room and saw Jacob standing guard...


He could already see that his friend knew exactly what went down.


"Seriously Arnav. You have the stamina of a bull."


He grinned at Jacob, "She's made my heart a fucking firework..."


"No wonder you're so volotile..."


"Can you blame me?! The nerve of that asshole..."


Jacob nearly raised his voice but Arnav cautioned him with a steady gaze...


"Yeah, well your mum punched him hard when you left the room..."


Arnav smiled, "I never doubted her sass...no wonder her and Khushi get along so well..." he took a deep breath, "I'm gonna get some sleep, I'm beat."


Jacob gave a knowing smirk, "Not. Surprised."


"Oh shut up." Arnav bit back with some humor in his tone, "Just stand guard."


"Always."


And as Jacob took his post, Arnav and Khushi disappeared into their room.


Laying her gently down on the bed, he kicked off his shoes and then took hers off, letting his fingers graze the skin of her calves, and she took a deep breath in...


Leaving a soft light on, he pulled the blanket up and gathered her in his arms, kissing her forehead as he breathed, "Mine..."




.......................



The darkness was only magnified moreso by the dripping echoes of water as it hit the stone cold jail floor.


The King stepped forwards into the light, "You've been part of my office for 20 years Dwayne," he took a breath, "Fuck, I thought you were a FRIEND!"


The beaten down man shook his head, "It was a momentary lapse of judgement..."


"Like HELL it was! You were thrown out for defying authority, and yet you come back the same night to ATTACK my son?! So 'momentary' is a fucking lie!"


"You're starting to sound like your high and mighty son now..." Dwayne scoffed.


The King's expression was fierce, "Wow. What a complete change or morals. You were there when my wife was taken! You remember my desperation to get Wendy back? How terrified I was? And who was by my side supporting me? YOU!"


Dwayne finally stood up, "I wanted her!!! I could have ruled this kingdom like it SHOULD be run!"


Smirking, the king replied, "Oh so this is because of pride? You and I both worked in the castle grounds as servants. You and I were FRIENDS, and yet because I fell for her, you now betray us? Why not betray me before? When I was searching like a madman for her?"


Shaking on the jail bars, he yelled, "Because SHE is the true royalty! SHE deserved to be rescued!"


The King began to laugh, "Oh....oh dear...You forget what my father in law decreed at my own wedding...This kingdom is founded on royal character, royal loyalty, and royal love...He trusted me and took me in because I loved Wendy more than my own life...and even now that he has gone, my character has not changed. You have finally shown your true self with your EASILY distorted behavior...I may have been nervous to rule at first, but I learned fast. And I learned from the best...I learned from OUR previous King. He gave the title to me. And I will be giving it to my son. You've already lost your status with me..." The King smiled, "Who the HELL knows how safe you'll be when my son rules...because he learned from me. I love my family for who they are, not for their title."


Stepping back, the King almost seemed nonchalant, "Your wife and son will be cared for. They won't pay for your mistakes. But I advise you to stay alert. You will be questioned in the morning, and we WILL find out if you were working alone."


Dwayne had been silent.


His face turning moist and sappy in color.


He knew exactly what the King was capable of, and knew what had happened to Evan and Lavanaya.


"I am still of nobility..." he stammered out nervously, "I demand protection in the cells for myself!"


The King shook his head, "My son is in control of your case. You had your chance to remain loyal to me...and you failed."


"I demand it!"


The King turned.


"I demand it!" Dwayne grew louder...


The King disappeared.


As he rounded the corner, he nodded as his soldiers saluted him.


"Just make sure no one else escapes."


The jailer nodded, "A thousands pardons please Sire, we are so sorry for-"


"Never again. Alright?" 


And he walked out.


He was suddenly face to face with his wife.


"You realize I heard all of that right?"


The King grinned, "I knew you had to be around, I could feel it."


The queen wrapped her arms around his waist and held him tight...


He noticed the grip in her fingers.


"What's up now...?"


She smiled into his jacket, "You always know..."


"I know you, and I love you..." he kissed the top of her head, "So just tell me..."


Her head lifted and her sad eyes locked onto his, "I heard him belittle you..."


He snickered, "oh that...The year I lost you, was the year that I no longer cared about what ANYONE thought of me...The opinions that mattered, were yours, and your parents. I miss them. And If mine were alive, they would have loved you so much..."


She frowned, "I just want to defend you...even though you are so strong and powerful..."


He laughed, "Last time you flattered me like this was when you wanted me to build a ferris wheel in the back gardens..."


As he held her hand, he began to lead her back to the castle entrance...


The queen's tone was sultry, "Did I ever end up thanking you enough for that ferris wheel by the way?"


His eyes turned dark as he pulled her behind some bushes..."You did...but care to try again?"



..................



Jacob patrolled the halls.


Checking on guards, on their reports.


"I just don't like that he turned on the King, AND Arnav..."


The new Chief of Security was agreeing, "It was as though he no longer cared about his allegiance to his King."


"This is why we need him interrogated. Arnav is fucking close to exploding. If there is any kind of threat around Khushi, he's going to kill first, no questions asked."


Corey, the battalion second in command walked up to Jacob


"He damn will."


"Well you know first hand Corey, you were there when he caught Nate Patel..." Jacob shuddered, "If only I'd seen it..."


"Look," Corey spoke quietly, "It's coming up to morning, take your break..."


On a yawn, Jacob merely grunted, "Fine. I want to question Dwayne. I look forward to cracking him."


Corey smirked, "Well you did a damn good job the day the Princess was rescued. You worked tirelessly on every aspect of the Baron's escape...but go, get some sleep. I'll take over."


And Corey readied his stance and stood guard as Jake made his way home.



...........



Arnav turned over and saw a deshevelled arousing picture...


His wife was completely out of it still..


"Not surprised..." he murmered, remembering how far he pushed her climaxes...


But as he glanced towards the window, he saw the sunrise hitting the treetops and he growled...


His instinct told him there was another attack coming.


And the first step to stopping it, was to get Dwayne Garrick questioned.


He covered Khushi with the blanket, and pulled on a robe as he walked to the door...


"Sir." 


"Morning. Jake slacking off now?"


Corey chuckled, "No no. Sleeping. He wants to be the one to interrogate the fucking traitor."


Crossing his arms, he quickly glanced back to Khushi then back to Corey as he pulled on the door, not closing it, but shielding his wife...


"You're going an incredible job with the Army..." he took a breath but Corey took over.


"Your needed here Sir. Everyone knows that."


Arnav clenched his fists, "Yeah, I am, but I want you to convey to every man in the barracks that I'm grateful. If everyone hadn't worked as fast as they did with Evan and that bitch, God knows what else could have happened..."


Corey looked completely confused, "is that a 'thankyou' sir?"


Arnav scratched his chin as he rolled his eyes, "Take it how you want."


"Whoa. Jake said you were frightening? This seems pretty much the opposite..."


"Ha, well HE has seen me during the last two attacks, and yeah...I was out for blood."


Leaning against the doorjamb, Corey craned his head, "Yeah. I was on the opposite side of the bloody castle on a wild goose chase. That dumb woman."


Arnav looked livid, "I need this castle on high alert."


Standing tall once more, the second in command saluted, "Done sir."


"Good...oh, and send for breakfast in an hour..."


A few servers were whizzing past and Ally, Khushi's assistant, stopped, "The usual sir? Or would the Princess like something different?"


Arnav gave a brief smile, "Usual I guess, but ask the Queen if she wants to throw in any surprises, she has a way with things that my wife likes..."


Ally bowed and hurried off...


Turning back to his room, he pushed at the slightly open door and saw that Khushi was beginning to stretch...


"Knock loud before entering..." 


Corey grinned and nodded as Arnav closed the heavy wood.


Every step closer to her made his heart thump.


"So...damn...beautiful..."


She had already kicked off the sheet and blanket once again.


"Kicky, but beautiful..."


She still wore no panties from the night before, and her dress had risen up far enough for him to see her...


He paused, trying to calm the never ending desire to ravage her, when her thighs parted ever so slightly.


"Ah fuck it."


Grabbing her ankles, he pulled her to the edge of the bed...


She shreiked, waking up fast...


"Arnav?"


Their gazes connected in a flash and she read his eyes immediately...


Kneeling down, he pushed her legs open wide...


"Arnav..." she tried to come up with something to say, but her mind was fuzzy and her body already buzzing with need...


Ready to feast on her arousal, he slid close and his mouth watered knowing he was about to taste a dessert that could never be replicated...


He wrapped his arms around her thighs and pulled her into his face...


His hands pinned her hips to the mattress as she mindlessly wound her fingertips into his hair...


Arnav began to lap at her slit, tasting all of her as she keened in satisfaction...


He could feel his cock bobbing for attention, throbbing and begging to plunge into her and never come out...


But he wanted to eat his fill of her...


He wanted to get drunk on her before he made her forget every word that was spoken against her...


Finding her swollen clitoris, he felt it pulsing against the tip of his tongue...


He flicked and sucked, revelling as he watched her face scrunch up in pleasure...


"Oh...Oh God...please..."


She was trying hard to buck into him, to find more friction than he was giving her, but his strength held her down...


She was tugging at his hair and panting for more, but he wanted to hear it, to hear her voice...


The lightest touches grazed her throbbing bud and she became desperate...


Sweat started shining on her forehead as her arms became weak...


"You are a fucking glorious sight my love..."


She could barely hear him as she arched her back, biting down on her lower lip...


Finally he heard her...


"...please..."


His spirit soared...


"...please Arnav..."


"Are you my Princess?" he hummed against her flesh...


"Yes...Yes I'm your Princess..."


Plunging his fingers into her core, he pressed his mouth onto her clit.


She climaxed instantly.


Her nails raked along his scalp as he sucked the pulsing bud hard between his lips, keeping up the suction as her juices flowed onto his cheeks.


She was shaking and trembling, her body contracting and her thighs trying to gain movement that he wouldn't allow...


Her soft, sensual skin was pressed against his face, muting out the entire world as his eyes focused on her face...


It flushed with pleasure as her back dropped to the sheets beneath, her entire form awash with sweet agony...


Releasing her clit, he slowly pulled out his fingers as he stalked up her body, his erectiong sliding against her thigh...


"Take me..."


Arnav smiled, "I will...but first you need some food in you..."


"I want YOU in me..." she blurted out without thinking...


He gave a soft laugh and kissed her lips...


She could taste herself...proof that he had owned her body once more...


Grinding her lower body against his she could feel him, "But you...you need..."


"And I'll take you when you least expect it...you know exactly how much I love you, and I'll prove it over and over again today..."


Her blush was all the response he needed.


How about we have a shower together, then breakfast should be here...


"We're not going to the dining room?"


the worry in her voice confirmed her lingering fear...


"No, we're in our haven, as long as you need..."


Her arms wound around his neck as he rested his body onto hers, "Thankyou...truly, thankyou..."


"This is what I WANT to do Khushi...you may thank me, but I would be doing this even if you were kicking and screaming..."


She giggled, "You like it when I'm kicking and screaming..."


He gently bit her shoulder, "Mmmm, you're right...I like your bite...and you like mine..."
