Eternal Love Part 2



The soft knocking had Arnav jolting awake...


The room was dimly lit and his first thought was Khushi.


She slept peacefully beside him...


Pulling the blanket over her body, he covered her gently making her take a blissful sigh...


His heart tugged, "Shhhh...I'm here my love..."


Pulling on pants, he called out as warily as he could..."Enter..."


And Arnav's best friend strode in, keeping his footsteps as unobtrusive as possible...


This was the first time Arnav had seen him since returning. 

"Prince Arnav?..." 

Arnav saluted back and stayed seated beside his wife...


"May I ask how she is?"


"...You can if you keep your voice down..." running his hand over his forehead, Arnav tried not to groan..."Sorry Jacob, She's recovering...but this has really messed with her head...and if it were all possible, I'd kill that fucker all over again..."


His friend snickered, "Look, Arnav...there really wasn't much left of him to kill...you did a thorough job...it was fucking gory..."


The Prince's eyes were hard, "Good. Tell me we have leads...that bastard was playing us...does he have someone working for him? Or was this all just for payback? To terrorize Khushi...?"


Jacob shifted on his feet..."Someone DID help him get out of jail...I would take this threat seriously...because the baron seemed like he did have plan...there’s a reason you haven’t seen much of me. As soon as the fucker escaped I’ve been on this case. To find out what the hell happened. I wanted to make sure I got onto this...I was out searching for her alongside you..."


Arnav's unwavering glare now burned..."I know you were...I want any other threats, FOUND."


"I'm looking...asking as many people as I can..."


"Do it fast." he gnarled..."Because I won't allow her to be taken again...I-" he shook, the images in his mind more than he could handle...


"We have scouts out. We will get any and all involved... Still reports every 4 hours?"


Arnav grunted and felt his fists clench..."Yeah...yeah...thanks...it’s good to see you. "


"Yeah you too. I heard you nearly took out our army singlehanded..."

The Prince scoffed...“Yeah, fucking hell...I was going mad...”

Jacob cleared his throat, “...hey, no one blames you. If anything, your actions have brought this army kneeling in fear before you.”

Arnav’s nostrils flared, “Now to make all other threats kneel...as I dice them to pieces...”

“Damn you’re fucking frightening mate...”

Khushi stretched in the bed beside him and before he could even ask, Jacob was backing out. 

“We WILL find who is behind this...Corey is back at the barracks for now, I’m taking over. There are men EVERYWHERE.”

Arnav nodded, “Keep it that way...”

When the room was once again empty, Arnav leaned back and looked down at his wife...


The bruising was slowly turning to red, the dark edges fading. 

Her wounded forehead was scabbing over. 

Arnav’s jaw clenched. 

The nightmarish memories flared in his mind and his heart pounded in pain...


He remembered her voice sounding so defeated and yet still begging for him to save her...her face so raw with emotion...her blood curdling screams...


The love he had in his heart for her was driving him insane...


Leaning down, he checked her position on the bed, making sure her wound wasn't open or weeping...


He soon was greeted with her blinking eyes...


"Hey...hey beautiful..." he spoke fast to reassure her...


And the soft smile that graced her lips had him dropping his head as the tears that threatened him were about to win...


"Arnav?"


He moved in close and rested his hand on her face, avoiding the abrasions..."I can't lose you...My God I had little to no emotion before you...Nothing moved me...But Khushi..." he kissed her softly..."My Khushi...You even returned to that man, to save ME...you had the strength to walk away from me...you have inner strength...I don't...I don't have the strength to live without you...I don't have the strength..."

Khushi's eyes regarded him...


Arnav was a dominant, powerful man.


He had lethal physical attributes that ensured fear in his enemies.


His position as Prince gave him extreme wealth.


And here he was, admitting he wasn't strong.


He has killed with his bare hands and he thought of himself as weak.


"My heart loved you instantly Khushi, but if I had known I would feel THIS passionately for you, I would NEVER have done the things I did when I first met you..."


Her lips parted as she exhaled with sadness..."Don't say that...Please..."


"Why...?" he brushed his thumb over her lower lip...


"That night when I was thrown out...I fell into the safest arms imaginable...and every single moment with you, even when I was frightened, awoke such incredible feelings in me...you helped my soul come alive Arnav...You saved me..."


He stole a kiss from her, lingering, taking his time so the moment wouldn't end...


"Khushi, you captivated me the second I saw you...I don't know how...But you had me...right then...your soul became part of mine...And when you fell in my arms, that first touch, I knew I was never going to be able to let go. I knew that the only way I could make it through this life intact, was to have you with me..."


Her hand was still resting on his chest, "I can feel your heartbeat...it's so fast...strong..."


"It only started beating this fast when I saw you...This heart will only EVER belong to you...I...I can't lose you..."


"Arnav...Please stop worrying...I'm-"


He pulled her closer..."I will ever stop worrying about you...But I NEED to tell you all this...I need you to understand, without ANY doubt that you are MINE...and that I am YOURS...that you belong to me...That I won't EVER give you up...God, I will ALWAYS save you, bring you back, drive into your body, fill you...You are MINE."


Khushi let out a shaky breath...


He had always been possessive, but this was now devastatingly more acute...


"It's making me feel homicidal knowing that you're still in danger, that someone is still trying to take you from me..." His blood began to boil with rage..."I won't allow it."


"Arnav..." 


She could hear the emotion in his voice, and knew that he was barely holding it together...


"I WON'T ALLOW ANYONE TO TAKE YOU." His expression showed he was in a state of sheer panic as sweat began to form on his brow..."You mean EVERYTHING to me! I will fucking LOSE IT if I don't have you..."


Her arms went up to hold his face and she held his gaze, "I ran from you that one time, for reasons you KNOW...I fell for you SO deeply that I wanted to save you, turn myself over to a life I knew would be my own demise..." she could feel him shaking with agony, his eyes shut tight as he fought the onslaught of tears..."But Arnav, you saved me...you always have...I will never leave you...I vow that you won't ever be without me..."


When his eyes opened and met hers, she caught her breath at the hunger she saw there...


His hand now gripped her nape, his fingers sinking into her hair as he held tight..."You should NEVER have run from me..." his eyes flashed with darkness..."You should have told me about your situation...I would have done ANYTHING for you...You controlled my every move, whether you knew it or not...I knew I was going to touch you the moment I saw you...I knew I was going to kiss you before you asked me...And I knew you belonged to me before your eyes even met mine..."


This man knew how to reach every part of her heart...


She heard the severe yearning in his voice...


"I love you..." was all she could say before tears spilled out, her emotions already too strained for her to have any control over them...


"Mine..." he snarled as he moved fully over her, slamming his mouth onto hers...


His lips were rough  as he claimed her mouth in a frenzied kiss that stole her breath and had her gripping onto his shoulders...


She melted under his body, her senses craving him...


He was rough around the edges, animalistic, merciless, savage and highly dangerous...


And where she was involved, he was pure passion, pure love...


He craved her touch, her love...


The need in his eyes, the way he held her desperately close...


Arnav couldn't think straight, the desire to ravage her senseless was overcoming him once more...


"Please...Arnav..." 


Gripping her hips, he growled as his fingers felt her soft curves...


Holding her to him, he shifted his pelvis against her, the weight of his body pressing against her...


"Arnav!!! Now! I need you! NOW!!!"


Khushi's sudden demand shattered the final remnants of his control...


At lightening speed, he reached down, pulled out his erection and plunged inside her...


"YES!!" her arms wrapped fervently around his neck...


Khushi's heart ached and thudded with the love she had for him..."Oh...my God...You feel...You're so deep...you're a part of me-"


The words were barely out of her mouth when he slammed back into her with a menacing rumble..."I AM PART OF YOU!!!"


Her inner flesh stretched around his generous girth and length as he drove into her with determined purpose, filling her completely, and staking his claim on her heart over and over again...


Khushi's urgency for her husband was insatiable...


"Oh God...I won't survive it Arnav...If someone separates us..." she murmured in fear...


"I WILL NOT LET THAT HAPPEN!" 


Her keening breaths were sharp as she groaned...


And he kissed her to silence, his tongue bullying hers as his pace accelerated with desperation...


He took her...


Possessed her...


"Oh...OH...OH GOD! ARNAV!!!"


And she orgasmed, crying out her release as it over took her and shook her to the core...


He pulled away enough to stare deeply at her features, his voice gravelly with hunger..."I will NEVER tire hearing you scream my name..."


Khushi could barely hear, still in the throes of her unfurling climax, but she responded..."I'll never...never tire...of screaming it..."


She held onto him for dear life, her heart in her throat...


Arnav had slowed his thrusts, letting her ride out the sensations, but he was still hard as concrete...


"You're my only thought, my only want, my only need..." he breathed against her lips...


He could feel her legs shaking, her channel quiverring...


Pulling out, he held her thighs wide and surged back in, roaring at her tightness, her heat...


Khushi screamed to life as her arousal doubled...


She reached for him, but he grabbed her hand and pinned it beside her...


With her one free hand clinging securely to his shoulder, he took her hard and fast..


Each thrust reached deeper into her until she felt as though he was stroking every nerve ending inside her on each pass, lighting her up as he slammed home...


The tight, aching desire inside her started to pull together, gaining weight and speed...


Waves of sensation rushed over her as he pounded ...


His eyes were steadfast on her.


Not once tearing them away.


He saw her breath catch when his pelvis rolled over her clitoris on each hard thrust...


He didn't miss any reaction...


"Come for me...My Princess..."


Khushi's tried to nod, but his fingers held her still...


He slammed into her and she screamed, her climax destroying her every aware thought...


She was now just a writhing mass of pleasure beneath him as her sex clutched onto the long hard flesh that was riding her pleasure out until he commanded...


"Look at me!"


Forcing her eyes open, her gaze locked to his, he ignited and his seed surged into her, his phallus twitching and pulsing over and over...


They couldn't speak...


Harsh breathing filled the room...


His strong arms wrapped her around him and as their eyes closed and sleep claimed them both...



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




"I have her..."


He couldn't move.


"I have her..."


Sweat dripped from his brow...


"I have her..."


And out of the darkness, he saw her...


Her lifeless gray body hanging limply in the arms of a faceless man...


Hysteria possessed him...


Blood pounding behind his eyes...


"You can't save her..." 


The faceless man dropped her to the ground and suddenly there was a pool of blood beneath her...


Arnav's roar cut through the air...


"Now to cut her heart out...THAT you can keep!"

And he lifted the knife to his wife's chest...




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


Arnav bolted up in bed, more alert now than he'd ever felt...


Unmitigated terror  that lurked from his dream, hovered over him like a storm cloud...


His gaze riveted to her, and he let loose a feral sound of possession...


Without a word, he pinned her arms above her, threw his body on hers, and pressed her deep into the mattress...


Shuddering awake beneath him, her heart, mind and body tremored with realisation that her colossal strong husband was about to claim her...


He felt her awareness and slammed his mouth to hers, deepening the kiss until she became lightheaded...


If unconditional dominance could be birthed into human form, it would take on the image of her husband.


His mere glance held power, the kind of power that would defend her...


She tried to speak against his mouth, but the sound that was born from his throat was an intense snarl that rendered her silent.


Khushi knew instantly that he was fighting with a hellacious rage that was burning inside him...


She could smell his terror and desperation...


Her Warrior husband was breaking apart inside, and all in fear of losing her...


Arnav's dream kept flashing in his mind, and his panic hit fever pitch...


Khushi was gasping against his mouth, and he ate up every noise...


He devoured her shrieks, swallowing her, his lips sliding soundly over hers, his tongue dipping in to stir up every desire that she could muster...


Her insides began to burn...


Arnav could feel her womb systematically squeezing, cramping, desperate to come apart...


And he hadn’t even touched her yet...


His hand that had been fastened to her waist now reached between her legs...


His deft fingers ran the length of her lower lips and he caught her squeal of pleasure on his tongue...


Arnav growled finding her slick, her cream pouring out...


Hitching her legs wider, he opened her body wide...


Ramming into her in a single plunge, her body stretched, her scream involuntary ...


The sound that came from him as his length disappeared into her sex almost unnerved her...


Not giving her a moment to adjust, he thrust into her again and again, each stroke ending with an animalistic grunt, taking her roughly so she could think of nothing but him and their all-consuming passion and love...


Her lower half was now lost in convulsions as his long flesh burrowed into her organs...


Khushi wanted to hold him, but he was taking her so hysterically she could do nothing but feel, as he invaded her body over and over...


His erection expanded more, harder, firmer, the pressure on her gspot growing...


Building, and building...


The urge getting stronger and stronger...


Her breaths now ragged and shrill...


"I'm...I'm going to come..."


He knew...He ALWAYS knew


He was forcing it out of her, needing to feel her pulse around him, needing to feel her alive...


And as her mouth opened in a silent scream, she squirted between their bodies...


But Arnav held himself securly inside, letting her fluid rush over their joined sexes and down her legs...


Her release was hitting her like a crack of lightening striking a dry field, every part of her body was on fire as she cried out against his lips...


Two more brutal penetrations and his own orgasm tore through him...


With a loud growl, he plunged deep into her body and held himself against her pulsing tissues as waves of fire sent an explosion of semen into her until Khushi was sure she would burst...


His breathing was still heavy and his mouth against hers, his words no more than a whisper..."I love you...more than life itself...And Khushi...you're mine...Mine and mine alone..."


Eyes closed, she felt his touch again...


With his phallus still deeply planted inside her, he moved his hand to her clitoris...


He played with her, sliding her slipery juices over her hard bud in insistent circles...


And almost instantly, he felt her explosion.


She climaxed, her orgasm like a sharp scorching fire...


It consumed her, burning through her veins as her insides rhythmically milked his penis over and over...


Arnav groaned, feeling every part of her pulse...


Khushi knew she had zero control in this...


The orgasms he sucked from her went on and on. 

His phallus remained inside her, incessantly needing to feel her pulsing and throbbing...

Keeping her body in a constant aroused state, he forced and pulled multiple orgasms from her swollen sensitive core, her body bowing and squirting mindlessly...

Her husband's predatory actions had now completely exhausted her...


Trying to speak, she could only wheeze out a soft sound as his fingers purged another climax, and he crowded her close, demanding her gaze...


"...shhhh...I needed you...you're safe my love...Come again..."


Blinking slowly, she whispered, "I...I don't think I...I can..."


His eyes shot out power..."You can...Give me one more...I can feel you...pulsing...everywhere...you're with me..."


And his newly hardened thick arousal upshot into her, her keening moan loud against his mouth...


Her cheeks were now flaming as he circled her clitoris and simultaneously thrust inside her...


Erratic and wild, he felt her thighs begin to shake, the all too familiar twitch of out-of-control desire now becoming greater...


He was now untamed and bucking hard...


"Give it to me Khushi...Give me one more!" he growled, breathing into her...


With an unsteady cry, she curled beneath him, her core wet and gushing as she orgasmed around his flesh, pushing him over the edge as his own release spurted out and deep into her contorting body...


"Yesss...Oh God yes...My beautiful wife...yes..."


And as the brutal cramping of her womb finally released her from it's clutches, she passed out into a blissful sleep...


"Fuck..." he shook his head and tried to focus on her...


Once again he checked her neck, and found no split or change...


Finding a small semblance of relief, he pulled her closer and remained inside her...


"My God Khushi...It would fucking terrify you to know how obsessed I am with you...You are mine...Fuck, you are MINE..."


She sighed in her sleep...


His lips travelled from her ear to her soft cheeks, kissing her damp skin and mottled bruises...


Sleep was the last thing on his mind...


Knowing it would eventually take over, he held onto his wife, while plotting the murderous acts he would do to anyone who would dare separate them...



..........



Khushi woke to his arms tight around her...


Her legs and core were achy with the warm buzz that came with being satisfied by her husband.


She saw he was sleeping, and tried to stretch without disturbing him...


Managing to roll onto him, biting back her groans, she settled him on his back while his arm still lay behind her...


She knew in the back of her mind that something had happened to purge such a sudden action from him...


He was utterly terrified.


With hazy eyes, she looked up at him...


"My handsome husband..." she whispered..."What scared you so?"


His brow was furrowed and she ran her hand down his face...


He relaxed instantly, his subconscious recognising her touch...


She could see that he had dark circles under his eyes, and hadn't shaved...


He looked dark and dangerous even as he slept...


A layer of force existed around him, a coiled rediness to strike and attack.


"Rest my Prince...please be calm..." 


He took a deep breath and fell into a deeper sleep...


And this time, it was Khushi who heard a soft knock at the door...


Her eyes darted from her husband to the door...


With as much strength as she could gather, she reached for the sheet and pulled it over herself as she slowly sat up...


And with a voice that could barely call out, she rasped..."Co...come in..."


The door opened and she saw the doctor and Arnav's second in command...


They were both stunned to find her awake and their all powerful Prince asleep...


She offered a small smile and motioned for them to come in...


"Hi..." she said softly. 


"Uh....Your Highness...?"


She felt like laughing..."It's okay Jacob...he needs his sleep..."


"Princess Khushi, I just need to check you again, this was the time the Prince set..."


She looked to the doctor, "Ofcourse, Hello again..."


The older doctor offered a smile, "You're looking a lot better..."


The guard was almost at a loss of what to do...


Khushi held back a giggle, "Jacob, he's just asleep..."


He stood at attention, "He's never 'just asleep'...You have no idea how much I respect him, but he also scares the shit out of me..."


Khushi began to turn to her husband but the doctor stopped her, "Sorry Your Highness, but I fear him too...he'll never forgive me if you're hurt on my watch..."


She frowned, "He's not that scary...is he?"


"Princess Khushi, he loves you more than I thought he could love anyone..." the doctor spoke as he probed at her head..."now, it looks like your concussion is gone...you've got a nice healthy color to you..."


"I'm finding it quite tight on my neck though..."


The doctor nodded, "Yes that is to be expected...as the fissure heals, it will get a bit tight...but there is literally no splitting or anything...the sutures have held. I can actually remove them later today...I'll place another waterproof bandage on so you can bathe again, and this one is made with different material so it can give you some movement back..."


"Oh good...thankyou..." she peered over the doctor's shoulder at the guard, she wanted to ease his discomfort..."So Jacob...want to give me the report?"


His eyes popped open wide and he finally gave a smile..."You're funny...Clara has been worried sick for you by the way. "


She smiled, "Please tell her I want to see her, she’s a wonderful friend to me. I know things have been tense...But I want everyone smiling again...And is Corey alright? I know Arnav has kept him on his toes-"


"He's fine, back at the barracks after a good sleep..."

Khushi sighed, "Good. Good. As long as everyone is taken care of..."

The doctor shook his head, clearly amazed at her character, "You are a breath of fresh air your Highness..." he turned to Jacob, "and Clara is?"

He smiled, “My wife...”

The doctor faced Khushi once more, “it seems that you are loved by so many...now, how does this feel? Better?”

Khushi nodded slowly, testing out the new bandage..."Oh finally...now he can stop gripping my hair..."


The doctor chuckled and Jacob smirked...


She felt a blush coming on but the doctor spoke, "Ok, I see that all the pain killers I gave have gone, I'll give you 6 more...take two every six hours," he turned to the guard, "Can we bring in some more food for her?"


"Ofcourse," Jacob walked carefully backwards, watching for any of Arnav's reactions until he reached the door and called on one of the attendants...


Wanting to giggle, Khushi looked over to her husband, "Seems you're a beast Prince Arnav..."


The doctor laughed quietly, "He's in love. I want to say that you're very lucky to have the greatest warrior to protect you, but I moreso I want to say...he’s luckier, he has the greatest princess to tame him..."


Khushi took a deep breath, "I am still scared of what is happening, but I love my husband so much, and this family...this castle...I feel like maybe I've brought this on everyon-"


"No Your Highness," Jacob interrupted, "You have been a light in the darkness since coming into his life...He's been my friend and leader for many years, and I can tell you without any doubt that you OWN him."


Her heart was swelling up..."Thankyou...both of you...ALL of you..."


"You know we would do anything for you...plus we have the added threat of him killing us if we don't..." the doctor grinned and winked...


Khushi smiled, "Okay okay, you may go...thankyou for checking me, I guess he's given another time to come back?"


"Every four hours..." the doctor said as he stood up, "I suggest you wait to bathe or he WILL be furious..."


Khushi laughed, "I will wait..."


The doctor bowed and left the room...


"Your Highness, I'll be outside the room...Let him know that we were here so he doesn't lose his temper..."


"I'll think about it..." she said on a smirk...


Jacob smiled, "You're good for him...possibly too good..."


He saluted and left, but kept the door open for the attendant who brought in some food and placed it on the bedside table...


Arnav began to stir and the first thing he saw was an unfocussed figure standing at Khushi's side of the bed...


Before anyone could think or breathe, Arnav was out of the bed, instantly attacking.


He had the attendant in a headlock, ready to kill..."I will END you!!!"


Khushi yanked the sheet further around her body and grabbed his arm, "Arnav! No! Stop!"


His eyes locked onto Khushi but he showed no signs of releasing the man...


Jacob darted into the room...


"Sir!" Jacob turned into a soldier as he addressed his commanding officer..."Sir, this man brought her food, there is NO danger..."


Arnav was shaking, his previous dream still flaring in the back of his conscious...


But with his wife's hands clinging to him, and her gentle eyes pouring out love, he released the server and pulled her into his arms...


Jacob hurriedly ushered the man out and closed the door...


"Shhhhh...Arnav...I'm ok..."


His hand came up behind her head as he wound his arm behind her back, securing her body against him...


She began to feel a small bout of shock, and he noticed immediately...


Her lips trembled as he pressed his mouth to hers, urging her to open for him...


Arnav stroked his tongue deeper, tasting more of her, desperate to quell her shivers...


He explored every inch of her mouth, memorizing all her reactions once again...


With effortless fortitude, he lowered her back to the bed...


And as they kissed, her legs fell open...


Freeing his flesh, his erection unerringly finding it's way to her wet, swollen heat...


He knew she must be sensitive after such a rousing night, but he needed her again...


Sliding his phallus through lower lips carefully, he continued to kiss her, stroking that steady hum of desire higher...


"Don't be afraid my love..." his mouth brushed over hers, "Damn, I will never get enough of you my love..."


Khushi rocked her hips in response, her legs riding up his sides as he found a slow rhythm that made her whimper, her body letting down her slippery arousal...


Arnav touched his forehead to hers and looked down between their bodies...


It was the hottest thing he'd ever seen...


His thick flesh was shiny with her fluid as he speared inside deep...


Her eyes were closed, almost completely unaware as the magic of their connection distracted her from his depravity...


"Khushi..." he rasped...


"mmm..." 


"Khushi...my love..."


Her lips parted, and another sigh that faded into a groan came out as he began to drive harder through her pink folds...


"Don't stop...please..."


Hearing her desperate for him made his heart feel whole, and he kissed her, hard and fast, demanding and hungry...


Ruthlessly.


He put everything he was into the kiss, showing her with his mouth what he didn't know how to say out loud.


Khushi gasped for air as he begins to penetrate with the matching desperation of their kiss...


"Oh God..." she mewled...


He pushed in, pulled out, and pushed in hard, forging his space inside her...


A rush of heat swept through her and he rested more of his weight into her pelvis, opening her up more to stake his claim...


The deeper he thrust, the deeper the delicious ache in her groin became...


He inhaled roughly as he moved with precision...


"I love you Arnav...My GOD I LOVE YOU..." 


With a thunderous howl, he pistoned his erection into her harder...


Khushi made a helpless whimper that struck his flesh, making it throb harder as he thrust...


Their mouths were sliding back and forth, not completely kissing...


He wanted her everywhere...


Her mouth, her hands, her body, her breath...


"I love you...I fucking LOVE you Khushi..."


And the insane storm of exquisite pain started, deep deep inside...


"OH GODDD I'M COMING..."


"I know! Come for me! You're Mine! MINE!!!"


Her body turned to liquid fuel as she exploded, her body contracting perilously hard around his girth...


Arnav kept her flying as he pushed into her...


He clung to her as he surged into her one final time and shuddered, climaxing hard...


"Arn...av..."


"Shhhh...shhhhh..." he crooned at her, still trying to catch his own breath...


He soothed his palm over her cheek, forcing his focus on her...


"I'm sorry, but I am NEVER going to stop...I will claim you...all the damn time...until every inch of you smells like me...until every inch of your skin is marked by me..."


Holding his stare, she said, "Yes...Please..."


And he stared down at her, unable to look away...


Khushi's voice was weak as she tried to speak..."You...you're so..."


His delectable grin was now shining into her heart as he lifted a brow, silently asking her to finish her sentence...


"You're so handsome..."


Shaking his head, he slowly withdrew and helped her sit up...


"You don't get to shake your head at me Prince Arnav...I know you're handsome, and you don't get to argue..."


He was about to reply but as his gaze drank her in, he forgot whatever he was going to say...


Khushi frowned as she smiled..."Arnav?"


"I could literally stare at you all day..."


And the frown disappeared, a growing blush now flushing her face...


"That's how breathtaking YOU are...Princess Khushi..."






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






"Please tell me you won't make a habit of trying to kill the staff?"


Arnav chuckled...


He slid his fingers along her skin as she lay weightless against him in the large bathtub...


The steaming water around them soothed their sore muscles and helped their senses relax...


"My first thought is always to defend you..."


She smiled, "Against poor Julius who brought me food?"


His touch on her became firmer, now resting on her chest, his palm covering her heart...


"Arnav...talk to me...please..."


She could feel his tension, could feel his shudder...


"I had a dream Khushi...I lost you..."


Her head that rested on his collarbone slowly lifted as she tried to look back at him...


"Careful sweetheart..."


"New bandage remember?" she smiled and pointed at the gauze...


"I know," the concern in his voice evident..."But the stitches are still there...I need you to be okay Khushi, fuck I need you to be okay..."


"...Arnav, I'm here...and I told you, I'll always be with you..."


His right arm was wrapped around her waist, and his left hand lifted to hold her face...


Dipping his head, he touched his mouth to hers...


The hand that was around her waist now drifted lower and touched her sex, making her hiss against his lips...


"Khushi...I...I know you're sore, but..." he felt his insides twist, but he couldn't bring himself to apologise for something he would do over and over again, no questions asked.


"Don't you dare Arnav!"


Her words had his eyes snapping open...


She lay peacefully against him but her eyes were sharp and cutting into him...


"I may feel sensitive there, but don't you DARE regret giving me ple-"


"Regret!?" he sat up straighter, water sloshing over the sides of the tub...


He now towered over her, she looked up high into his eyes...


"Regret is the furthest thing from my mind..." 


Pressing a soft kiss to her mouth, he continued, "I won't ever be sorry for making you raw from our lovemaking...that ache is what commands your body to crave mine...makes you remember 'us' with every move you make...I don't regret a damn thing!"


Her gentle smile is all the response he needed, and he was once more lost...


"I seriously can't concentrate...you're so beautiful..."


Holding back a laugh, he could see that her wide eyes were trying to express something...


"I know that THAT look in your eye..." he smiled, "Go on...You have something you want to ask..."


Her cheeks flushed, "Well...I was wondering...Can we take a walk around the castle today? Just inside...I just...well...It would get me up and moving...please?"


She couldn't read his expression, but his muscles were taut, bunching under her grip...


Staying quiet, she waited...


"Yes..." he said firmly..."I'll be with you..and you do need to get some exercise..."


She quirked an eyebrow, "Exercise?"


Arnav smiled a devilishly handsome smile..."You're always going to get THAT exercise..." he kissed her cheeks one by one and then nuzzled her nose, "But I know what you mean sweetheart, we'll go for a walk around..."


"Thankyo-"


Stopping her words with a kiss, he said.."Uh uh...I'm yours to command my love...You know I'm worried, but I'll be with you..."


He started to lift her into his arms but she started to whine..."Five more minutes...?"


Shaking his head, he stepped out of the water, his hand on her shoulder to make sure she didn't slide and hurt herself...


 Reaching for the towel on the chair, he dried himself as Khushi watched from the tub, her eyes drugging over...


Her loins started to simmer beneath the water...


This man was a law unto himself, and would do whatever he thought was necessary to keep her safe...


Dropping the towel back onto the chair, he stared down at her...


Her gaze was glued to his broad shoulders, the hard planes of his abdomen, his muscled perfection...


He stood there like a gladiator...her gladiator...


And then it was his turn, he saw her perfection as she lay in the water bare...


She was his, and he knew that he possessed every part of her...


"Damn..." he muttered under his breath..."You're just...divine..."


She pouted, "Me? YOU'RE the one who looks like a GOD!"


And the brutish smirk was back on his face..."Oh really? Is that why you scream 'Oh My God' when I'm inside you?"


Khushi felt a let down of arousal drip between her legs and into the warm water...


Almost on cue, Arnav could smell it...


"Fucking hell...Khushi..." he massaged the back of his neck and craned it, his bicep curling as he bent his arm..."I swear..."


And she saw the reason for his hostility, he was now sporting a raging erection...


"Arnav...I want you again..." she purred...


Snarling, he bent down and lifted her saturated body into his arms...


"Then you're going to fucking GET me..." he said roughly as he spun her around and pressed her against the wall, letting her slide down onto his flesh as her hungry core sucked him in...


Her loud exhale was all he heard before his mouth crashed onto hers,...


Legs now wrapped around his waist, he held her up with his hips...


Hands now free to roam,  he softly brushed his fingers over her nipples...


Holding the weight of her breasts in his palms...


"Do you hurt?..." he asked against her mouth...


"No...please touch me..."


His thumb rolled her nipples gently, in a way that tugged on her clitoris from the inside...


"ohhh yes...take me against the wall...hard...fast...like an uncontrollable beast..."


His fingers slowed, and his hands braced her waist...


"I AM an uncontrollable beast, Khushi..." he growled, letting his hot breath drift into her lungs...


With eyes widening, realising she once again spoke out loud, he nodded..."You asked for it...against the wall...IT'S YOURS..."


His eyes flared dark as he withdrew and plunged back in with extreme force...


He felt Khushi's legs instantly start to shake...


"Arnav..."


"I've got you...eternally...trust the beast..." he grinned against her ear...


And the push and pull began again...


It was rough, but it was right...


His grip was possessive as she hung onto his body as he controlled every movement...


He was thick and hard, and her breathing showed her body responding fast...


Her needy whimpers were refusing to be contained...


Arnav impaled her, harder, harder...


Each thrust claiming her...


Khushi clung to him, his mouth on hers, swallowing her desperate cries...


Their pace was now frantic and primal...


She could think of nothing but him, nothing but the delicious pain that was boiling up from within her...


Her every nerve was thrumming, building with energy as his tongue darted over hers...


Arnav pressed harder into her, trapping her body between his and the cold tiled wall...


It was too much.


Too intense.


And he could feel her muscles begin their contractions...


She came undone in his arms, her core in a full on spasm as he rammed into her again and climaxed with a groan, his erection pulsing his seed deep inside her, their mouths and bodies locked as one...


"Khushi...Khushi..."


"Yes...oh my...yes..." 


With his breathing ragged, he slowly pulled out of her, and lowered her legs to the floor, his semen dripping out onto her thighs as her pulse raced...


Not able to hold herself up, he kept her in his grasp...


"Well this 'walk' should be interesting..." he whispered in her ear...


Her husky giggle warmed his heart twice over...


"I love the sound of your laugh..." 


Taking a deep breath, she said, "Give me a minute and I'll remember how to stand..."


Lifting her into his arms, he lowered her back into the bath, the water still warm, steam wafting out...


Kneeling beside the tub, he lay her back on his arm and with his other, he reached into the water and gently touched her sex, still able to feel her throbs...


"Close your eyes my love...I'm just cleaning you up..."


The serene look on her face as he washed her core made him impatient, wanting to hold her closer...


Khushi lay back and felt his fingers gently probe at her puffy labia and soon, she was once again lifted out of the water...


Her arms came around his neck and her hand moved to his face.


He stilled, his grip pulling her closer as his gaze roamed over her face...


"I love you My Prince..."


She saw him about to respond and she said, "No...no...let me be the one who says this...I love YOU...and I want you to know how much you possess me..."


Flattening his palm on her back, he pulled her torso against his and kissed her like nothing in the world mattered but the two of them, and to him, it was true...nothing mattered but her...




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





When the began to walk around the castle, the word spread...


The staff were overwhelmingly happy to see her again...


She had barely left their room when maids and servers were cautiously at her side...


They beamed at her, but were noticeably wary of Arnav...


That fact alone made him morbidly pleased...


Jacob jabbed his elbow at Arnav who was hovering around his wife, his presence so close he was still touching her...


"Calm Down...There are guards literally everywhere..."


It did little to calm his strung nerves...


Jacob just smirked and stayed at his post...


The amount of love that Khushi was receiving made his head spin...


He was trying his best not to be jealous as so many wanted to see her, hug her...


And they had only been on the first floor...


"And this is the only damn floor today..."  he added in his head...


He wasn't about to let her recovery backfire...


Seeing how happy Khushi was to move around and have some normalcy, he reined in his frustration until it was no longer possible.


After twenty minutes, he couldn't take anymore..."Can we get some breathing room..." he gritted out through clenched teeth...


Every single person was aware of Arnav's wrath, and they began to back off...


Khushi smiled apologetically saying, "I'm not going anywhere...I will see you all again..."


Finally the crowd began to dissipate...


"I swear, if you have become tired and not told me, I'll hit the fucking roof..." he whispered against her hair...


Her eyes narrowed a she took in his expression with a curious smile..."I may even tell you when I'm NOT tired just so I can be in your arms..."


Arnav bit back a grin and grabbed her hand, pulling her to a stop and was about to say something else when a tall servant bumped into her, knocking her completely off balance...


Khushi was now reaching for Arnav who already had her securely in his arms...


Reacting, Arnav violently shoved the man away from her and pivoted himself between the man and Khushi, his one arm winding behind him to wrap around her tight...


Jolts of adrenaline pumped in his veins fuelling his fierce protectiveness...


He was poised to attack, his body humming with morose readiness...


The servers eyes went wide and he put up his hand to show he didn't mean anything..."I...I...Forgive me...Sorry...Sorry..."


Khushi pressed her body against his back..."It was an accident...shhh...I'm alright..."


But Arnav's eyes were savage..."Guard!"


One of the many officers patrolling the halls was at his side within moments...


"Arnav...It's alright...please..."


Barely sparing her a glance, his arm was now vised around her, needing to feel her against him...


Her words were lost as Arnav was now possessed with untame ferocity...


"Get. Him. OUT!"


Obeying instantly, the man was dragged from the castle.


Her jaw dropped and Arnav spun around, lifted her in his arms as though she weighed less than sunshine, and marched back to their room...


Trying hard not to make a scene, she waited until they were back in private...


"Arnav! It was an accid-"


But he threw up against the back of the door, his hand coming up behind her head, and silenced her with a hard kiss, his tongue finding hers in a heated dace as she fought back in his arms...


He could feel her resistance, and yet, she kissed him back, her needy moans urging him on and making him frantic for more...


But he could feel her distress, her tension now sending crippling waves of heartache...


Gentling his touch, he slowed the kiss and loosened his hold on her...


"Khushi..."


And her tears slammed into his heart...


"I...I know why you did it...I was scared, but you were there...I'm alright..."


Dropping to his knees before her, he lifted her soft skirt and clasped the sides of her panties, pulling the lace down her thighs...


Hooking one of her legs up onto his shoulder, he opened her up to him, as he trailed bites and kisses up the sensitive skin of her inner thigh, her breath catching in anticipation, even as she fought back her panic...


But when he flicked his tongue against her clitoris and sucked it into his mouth, all she could manage to do was pull him closer with her shin as she moaned, running her hands over his head, tangling in his dark hair...


"Oh...OH GOD!"

He slipped two fingers deep inside her, thrusting into her as she cried out, her hips tilting towards him, her body urging him on...


He sucked and nipped on her nerve filled clitoris as his fingers filled and stretched her, curling against her gspot as the pressure started to build...


She pulled on his hair, wrenching it vigorously, "Ar...Arnav...You can't just...you...you're trying to distract...distract me...OH GOD!" 


Giving her no time to think, he moved his tongue over her hardening nub as his fingers explored, pressing and retreating on her most delicate spot that was enlarging with fluid...


"You're MINE to distract! MINE to protect! MINE! Go on! Pull my hair! Because I'm YOURS as much as you are MINE!"


And his mouth was back on her clitoris, sucking hard and deep, his cheeks hollowing as his tongue flicked over the nerves...


He was gorging himself, swallowing up all she offered as he watched her pant for him, her hips jerking...


She was already on the verge of a mighty orgasm, her legs trembling as she tried to remain upright, braicing herself against the hard door as she tried not to cry out and failed miserably..."Don't stop...Oh...Don't stop...I'm...I'm going to come..."


Her words and pulsing sheath spurred him on, his pace quickening as he fingered her and sucked her harder, and then...


"OH MY GOD!!!!!"


He pressed down hard on her gspot, setting her orgasm free...


The excruciating, delicious pain of her climax tore at her insides...


She shook as she was hit with wave after wave of pleasure, her entire body tense and her legs shuddering as her core gushed...


His fingers were pushed out as her knees gave out and she fell into his arms...


Catching her with ease, he carried her to the bed and lay her down on the fluffy soft sheets...


Her breathing was harsh and he swung his large muscular body over hers...


Cupping the back of her neck, he quickly studied her wound and found no trace of aggravation...


Before she was aware enough to speak, he caught her mouth in a kiss, the tense passion between them palpable as his tongue smoothed over hers....


"Shhhhh...I'm sorry...Sweetheart I'm sorry...I will make sure the server isn't punished...I just...fuck, I needed to protect you..."


She no longer cried, and any energy that was sparking her anger with him was used up in her climax...


"You...you're...going to put me in a sex coma..."


He held her chin gently as he laughed..."Tell me you love me...please..."


Lifting her heavy arms, she stared at him as her hands framed his face, "I love you, don't YOU doubt that...You know I would rather face death than be without you..."


Releasing the breath he didn't know he'd been holding...


"Don't say that..." he warned her as his body lowered onto hers.


She moaned...


There was something about the way he crushed her against the bed.


Every time, it quieted her fears and tension...


He took control, and that emptied her mind because she had no other choice...


Tranquility was firmly enforced...


"Khushi, I can't hold back how I react...I will always put your safety first...you're my one true love...fuck...is there a word stronger than love?"


She smiled, "If there is, it's 'us'...because my heart is yours forever..."


And the words from his dream slammed into him...


"Now to cut her heart out...THAT you can keep!"


He let out a terrified groan, his countenance shaking...


"Arnav...?"


"...that dream...I lost you...I can't...I can't..."


"No..." she ran her hands over his back, her fingers pressing into the fabric of his shirt, pulling it up and then branding his skin..."No Arnav...I'm with you..."


"Yes...you are...and that won't change...I'm at your side, for fucking eternity..."


Her lips parted and she was about to speak when they were interrupted...


Knock knock...


"Damn..." Arnav growled, "Why are there OTHER HUMANS in the world..."


Khushi started to laugh and began to sit up, only to have Arnav slide his arm behind her and raise her slowly, his lips pressing to hers...


Once she was sitting comfortably, he called out..."Who is it? It's not time for a checkup yet-"


"It's your mother! I don't care if you're moody Arnav, I want to see my daughter in law!"


He groaned...


She playfully smacked his arm, "Hey! I have missed them!"


Jealously flashed in his eyes for a moment, but he saw how excited she was to see his family...


"Anything for you my Princess..."


And he reached down and rearranged her clothes...


"Seems like I'll have to go without panties then Arnav..."


His face morphed into an expression of pure passion..."Fuck...fucking fuck...I want you...Damn it..."


Khushi laughed..."Well my handsome beast will have to be patient..."


He growled as he fixed up his pants and swooped in on Khushi, pressing his mouth to hers...


KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK


Pulling back, he was graced with his wife's excited smile...


"Ugh...fine..." he muttered and stood up, "Hang on mum!"


"AND DAD!" his father called out from the other side of the door...


Arnav clicked his tongue as he pulled the blanket over his wife...


"You know what...I'm going to build my own castle, and clothes are fobidden in our room..."


And her genuine laughter graced his ears...


KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK


She lifted her eyes to his, "They are getting impatient..."


"Yeah well you're NOT going to rush and hurt yourself..."


Just as he was anticipating the third knock, Khushi nodded and he held her hand..."COME IN..."






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






"She's literally less than five feet away from you Arnav..."


Arnav was breaking into a cold sweat...


"Son, calm down..."


He watched as Khushi spoke to his mother, and as for his father, he was yet to give him any solid attention...


"I'm sorry dad..."


The King chuckled, "It's alright, I know that first time your mother got taken from me, I actually didn't let her out of my sight for two years...She was about ready to kill me..."


Arnav finally looked his dad in the eye, "Mum was abducted?"


"Oh yes. I have many enemies. Just as you do. And they are conniving...but she knew I was coming for her..."


"How...how did you..." Arnav swallowed hard..."How did you ever function again...I mean, I'm going mad here...I lost her once, got her back...but this time was too close...WAY too close..."


"At the risk of giving you a heart attack, I'm going to tell you something...This may happen again, it may happen many times...but YOU are twice the warrior I was, you are more than I ever thought you could be...the only thing you didn't have before, was a heart...and now you have one. What the enemy thinks is a weakness, has now become your greatest strength...You know damn well that you will die to protect her...and you also know that she would do the same for you..."


Arnav snapped back at the King, "She will NOT! I won't allow it..."


His dad chuckled, "Ofcourse you won't...doesn't mean she won't try or doesn't feel it...What your mother did for me is something I still punish her for to this day..."


Arnav finally gave a smile as he shook his head, "Like father like son then...But dad, does it get easier? To move past all this?"


"No." the king stated firmly..."But you will learn to function again. You both will. A love this strong can't be stifled..."


Arnav stretched his arms, his muscles twitching as he clasped his hands behind his back straining at the tension...


"Son, you'll track down anyone involved...I know y-"


"Fucking right I will...I will tear them apart...THAT, I can guarantee..."


"I don't doubt you son, the army doesn't either. You've easily proven that you're a force beyond even their control..."


His growl was now unstoppable...


A couple of feet away, Khushi had seen the wrath that bristled over his form...


"Oh no...He's going to pop a blood vessel with that rage of his..."


The queen laughed, "You're so funny...I've missed you, but Arnav is quite possessive at the moment..."


Khushi smiled, "I know...And I've missed you so much, but ...Can I admit something?"


Her mother in law nodded...


"I love him...I love his protection, My heart feels safe...I've never had that until now...I've never lived like this..."


The Queen smiled softly, "It's wonderful isn't it!? But when it starts to get too much, let me know...because when I was kidnapped for the first time, by pirates, way before Arnav was born, the King was hovering over me for over two years...He SAYS it was only two, but he appointed bodyguards on me who reported back to him for the next year after that until he felt calmer...I was almost desperate to get out and about on my own..."


Khushi frowned, her hand reaching out for the queen..."You were kidnapped? I'm so sorry..."


The genuine pain she saw in her daughters eyes moved her beyond belief..."I'm alright sweetie, I always was...I knew my King was coming...He always would...same for your Prince...Never underestimate how determined these men are..."


Her eyes fell, "They certainly are...however, I feel horrible, I feel like this is my fau-"


"HUSH! You won't speak this way!"


Arnav all but lept towards his wife..."Mother! What the hell?! You can't talk to her like th-"


Her eyes flashed, "Khushi is trying to blame herself for this! And no daughter in law of mine will hold onto guilt that is unwarranted!"


His gaze darted from his mum back to his wife, "Khushi, I warned you..."


She began to breathe harder, when the King seated himself at the end of the bed..."Khushi, what my son and wife fail to understand is something I understand completely...I understand how you may believe you brought on this danger...I have felt this many times... And one day you will finally digest the reality. There are bad people in the world. None of what they do is caused by you. They commit crimes and do evil because THEY want to. This is the chess game of life. You are a pawn in their way. But then comes a King, or in your case, a Prince, who will knock out every piece that tries to take you down, until at the end of the board, you are transformed into a queen, and nothing but the two of you are left..."


The Queen sat in awe, the love that shone from her eyes was tangible...


The King winked at his wife.


Arnav was holding Khushi close as she whispered..."I owe you my life, I am sorry for feeling the way I do..."


When she lowered her head, Arnav held onto her chin and pulled her gaze back to his..."Your life was already secured the moment I felt you near me...It is I who owe you my life. I was the pawn until you, my queen, hit the board...you saved me...what makes you think I wouldn't wipe out every other threat until you were safe..."


The queen started to chuckle, "These romantic, chatty  men...gives me a craving for dessert...how about you sweetie?"


Her words broke the tension and Khushi started to laugh, "I love you all..."


Arnav quickly pressed a chaste kiss on her cheek, "You love me more though right?"


She blinked and pursed her lips at him, trying to hold back a giggle, "Maybe I love my mother in law more..."


The Queen slid up to Khushi's side and handed her a cookie from the tray beside the bed, "And for THAT, you get a prize..."


Khushi laughed and Arnav felt the sound electrify him..."Don't I get one for her rescue then mum?"


Clutching the cookie to her chest, she scowled..."my cookies..."


He smirked looking at his mother...


"After the crazed and uncontrollable outburst you performed, who says you get a prize?" the King said, humor evident in his voice...


"Ah, yes..." the queen taunted, "Sweetie, I think you already have been made aware what your hot headed husband did to his own officers?"


Arnav straightened, the look in eye glinting with pride..."She knows..."


But Khushi remained quiet, the confection in her grasp slowly disappearing...


"And it also seems like she doesn't care as long as there's a cookie in her hand..."


And her bright beaming smile lit up the room and his heart...




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



One day later...




Arnav watched and cringed at the removal of her stitches...


Her eyes were shut tight, but she didn't make a sound.


Marvelling at her durability and vigor, he kissed her hand...


"I'm alright Arnav..."


"I'm not..." he ground out...


"She is doing wonderfully well..." the doctor said as he carefully extracted the hard threads..."And...done..."


Khushi winced as she finally lifted her fingers to her  neck..."Well that's something I won't miss..."


"I don't blame you Your Highness, you've recovered fast...I'm glad you were stitched so quickly..."


Arnav was growling and Khushi smoothed her hand over his thigh, "Shhhhh...you're going to scare the doctor..."


His eyes darted up, but as soon as he saw her expression, he melted, "You're determined to portray me as a beast aren't you my love..."


Her cheeks went bright red..."I...I just...I..."


Arnav planted his palm on the back of her head, and swept her backwards over his arm...


She gasped but soon sighed with contentment as he placed soft kisses over her scarring skin...


When he lifted his head, he straightened their bodies, "I've been wanting to do that for so long now..."


Her soft hum of laughter warmed his entire being, but soon saw embarrassment in her gaze...


And Arnav looked up and saw two men smirking at them...


"Uh..."


"No need to be coy," the doctor man said, "It's not like we didn't already know you loved her..."


Arnav grinned, "What gave it away?"


"Oh I don't know," Jacob chimed in, "Maybe the constant love-sick look in your eyes..."


Khushi beamed bright and craned her head to Jacob who stood at the doorway looking nervous at how he'd just spoken...


Desperate to break the tension, Khushi said, "So...You want to give me the report again?"


She felt Arnav's muscles tighten and Jacob grow pale...


Laughing she smacked her husband on the arm, "Stop it! I'm only joking! I had to lighten the mood when you were fast asleep next to me..."


Arnav instantly loosened up, his eyes shining with humor, "Yeah well you tire me out..."


Her jaw dropped and Jacob and the doctor began to chuckle...


"Arnav, I swear, I didn't give her any report..."


The Prince shook his head, "Jake, I'm not mad...I know you didn't...She's just trying to get a rise out of me...freaking little angel..."


And he leaned in, kissing her cheek...


"So, now that the stitches are out, you can just have the stretchy gauze on it now to keep the new skin protected...It's healed, but I know it will still pull from time to time..."


"Thankou, truly...you have been wonderful to me..."


The doctor cracked a smile, "As I said before, there's a tyrannical Prince who would attack us if we didn't help you..."


Arnav threw his head back and laughed..."What the hell went on while I was asleep?"


Jacob was grinning from ear to ear watching his friend..."Wow, a laugh...Princess, you know he rarely even smiled before you..."


She raised her hand to his face, "What a shame...I've never seen a more handsome smile in my life..."

Their eyes now danced, more heat pouring between them than lava over a mountain...


Clearing his throat, the doctor interrupted, "So...Your Highness, you should get out and about, walking the length of the palace would help you..."


Arnav sat next to her and pretended his blood hadn't started to boil...


His wife made it so he couldn't think straight...


All he wanted to do was ravage and possess her...


"Not like you haven't done that already for over a week...twice over..." his thoughts reprimanded him...


"Well, I can certainly do that," Khushi said with her melodic tone...


Arnav's thoughts were instantly halted hearing her...


She turned to him, her hand on his arm..."You'll come walking with me?"


There was no way she was going anywhere without him...


He scoffed at her, "Just try and stop me Your Highness," he leaned in, his lips against her hair, "...try and stop me and see where it gets you..." 


His words made her smile as she rested back against him..."I have a feeling I'll like where it gets me..."


Arnav felt his body quicken, a zap of desire shooting into his groin...


And before he could lose control and make love to her in front of the doctor, he took hold of her hand and helped her up from the bed... 


"You're such a power couple..."


Khushi laughed, and Arnav's eyes were drinking in her beauty....


"I think Arnav is the 'power'..." 


He gave her a lopsided smile and turned back to her...


Unable to stop himself, his arm went around her waist, her body brushed against his and he captured her mouth...


He was so tall, so muscular, and his hold on her was gentle but so strong...


The kiss was over almost instantly and he saw her heated cheeks...


He had overwhelmed her and left her craving more...


Now the smile was a smirk as he took her hand and led her out the door...

"You just did that AGAIN in front of-"


He pressed up against her once again, her hand flying up to his chest..."And I'll do a lot more if you don't get moving..."


She was barely resisting the urge to wrap her legs around his waist...


Running a rough hand across his jaw, he gave her a heated look that had an erotic ache shoot through her sex...


"Come on...the sooner we do this, the sooner I get to-"


"Sir?" Jacob interrupted.


Arnav rolled his eyes and turned...


"Uh, shit...Sorry..."


The Prince snickered, "It's fine..." 


Jacob's jaw dropped..."It...it is? Uh...I..."


"Mate, It won't be fine if you keep stammering..."


Khushi poked her fingers at his ribs..."Stop scaring him..."


"He's not scared..." Arnav laughed, "We have fought along side each other...He's tough..."


His friend shook his head, "Arnav, I'll just say this...this woman is the best thing in the universe for you..."


Arnav's eyes relocked with Khushi and he nuzzled her nose, "Damn fucking right she is..."


Head darting back, Arnav asked, "So? You were going to say...? Before you became a shaking mouse...?"


Jacob scoffed at him, "Yeah, you wish...I was merely going to say that there is no news to report, and hell, I'm sorry for that..."


He took Khushi's hand and started walking, "Keep digging...Because I'm going to tear the kingdom apart soon..."


Jacob turned to walk away muttering..."Yes Sir...You frightening Orge..."


And it was Khushi's turn to burst into laughter...


As she walked forwards, Arnav turned and paced backwards..."Oh so that is funny to you My Princess?"


Her musical laugh drifted out as she nodded, "Oh yes, very much..."


He stopped moving, but Khushi continued...


And as her body touched his, he held her close, taking her in his arms, moving to a silent music as they swayed...


"mmmm..." 


"...I love you Khushi..."


Her glittering eyes held his, "Will you promise me something...please?"


His eyes narrowed, "I would climb the heavens and bring back the stars for you..."


Hearing her soft intake of breath made his heart catch...


"I don't need the stars...I just need you...Promise me, we will never be apart..."


Lifting her in his arms, he carried her to the end of the long hall...


"Arnav?! This defeats the purpose of why we left the room!"

He huffed out a breath and when the last guard was barely in sight, he pressed her up against the wall...


His imposing size dominated her gaze as his voice was authoritative and assertive...


"You know what I am capable of...And I will promise you right here, right now, as I stare into your eyes, deep into your soul, that we will always be together...spreading out into eternity..."


"I love you...so deeply...so greatly..."


He grinned, "Do you now?"


"Without you I'm nothing..."


Arnav growled and shook his head, "You are everything all by yourself, It's you who fulfil ME...I'm only whole, if I have you..."


"Well My Prince, when are you going to have me?"


His eyes went black with need, "We're going back to our room...

But almost as soon as he had turned, he stopped on the spot.


Khushi frowned, "Arnav?"


His eyes darted from the edge of the railed staircase and back to Khushi...


He hated hearing the fear in her voice, but the scene around him was off, "It's alright...I just..."


The guard who had stood metres away,  had suddenly disappeared...


His heart kicked up...


And before he could speak, he heard Khushi gasp...


She started to fall and as he reached for her, he felt a sharp jab in his neck as he too was covered in a cloak of darkness...




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





"Sir! Officer Jacob! Come fast!!!"

Guards and officers how hollered orders from one floor to the next...


Jacob bounded towards the screaming calls, and saw three guards on the floor, completely drugged...


"Shit!" he looked from left to right, "Where are the Prince and Princess!?" his tone was now mighty..."Who saw them last!?"


Guards from the opposite end were now swarming the scene, "Sir, the only people on this floor was the maid to fix the rooms and the steward who's penalty was rescinded for his acciental strike against the princess..."


"Fuck. Arnav was right!" Jacob was full of aggression now, "Find them! Call in every reinforcements! Squadron 1, Find the maid, the server! The rest of you, fan out! You find the Prince and Princess! NOW!"


The King was crowding the lower levels now, "They've been taken? HERE in the castle!?" 


His Sovereignty was now pumping out adrenaline.


He turned to his personal staff and rang out orders, "Get my wife to safety, and rotate ALL staff. EVERY employee that is on today is to be expelled from the castle and you will bring in new workers until we find the breach! Do it NOW!"


"Sir!" 


Jacob turned to a guard down the halls, "What!?"


"There are syringes and caps down towards the north of the palace, and there are two drugged maids in the kitchen!"


"Fucking hell!" Jacob grunted, "Find who is responsible!!!"he turned to another officer, "Send an urgent message to Colonel Corey, get him here FAST."


Jacob stood at attention for his King who swung back to face him, "Go Jacob, Find my son and daughter."


And the guards dispersed.




...........





Arnav's reality burst into him as he woke with a carnivorous snarl...


The first thing he saw was his gagged and sedated wife chained to the wall in front of him...


"Khushi..." the worry that sparking from inside him was a live current...


His arms moved to reach for her but he soon saw that he too was restrained against the dungeon wall...


"Khushi," he pulled at the chains..."Khushi sweetheart wake up..."


He took in his surroundings and realised where they were, "My own bloody jail!?"


Yanking hard on the cords, his fury exploded, "Fucking hell!!! Show your face then! Or are you THAT much of a coward!!!"


Instantly, the heavy iron door swung open and his expression contorted with hatred...

"YOU are behind this!? You cunt!!!" 


Lavayana smirked, flipping her hair as a tall, lanky man followed her in, slamming the door behind them...


"Remember me?!" he asked with a sneer...


Arnav's eyes went black as he recognised the server who bumped into Khushi, "YOU?!" 


Evan laughed, "Now I get to look upon the man who killed my brother!"


A snarl tore from Arnav's lips, "Not just your brother, I'm the man who's going to kill YOU too..."


"Oh come on Prince Arnav," Lavanaya sneered, "I've been working in your kitchens for an entire day just to get an audience with you...what a demeaning role...I even drugged a heap of the waitresses who were suspecting me...and you MARRIED a servant girl!" 


"You will pay for the violence you have caused! I married a true princess! You're a cheap worthless piece of shit!"


Her face dropped and she glared at Arnav..."YOU underestimate how far I would go to get what I want! You can't touch me anyway. My family is wealthy, anything happens to me and they will come after HER!"


She pointed at his unconscious wife...


Arnav smiled a sinister smile, "Ohhh you really know how to ask for your own execution don't you?...You threaten MY WIFE and you're as good as dead...That is a promise..."


Hissing out her distain, Lavanaya played with her hair, "Oh and for the record, you woke up far too early...I was just about to reach my hands down your trousers and touch what should have been MINE when you began to twitch..."


Seething with fury, Arnav spat in her face..."YOU never even came CLOSE to having me..."


She glared for a moment before she faced the other man, "Evan, we have to work fast..."


Turning her back on the prince, she strode towards the princess...


"Get away from her!" Arnav snarled...


Ignoring his words, she walked closer...


"I guess she is tolerable...But you should have married me...I would have pleased you MUCH more..."


The Prince was growling a continuous animal sound as he spat out, "You can PLEASE me by getting the FUCK away from my wife!"


Clenching her teeth, she reared her leg back and suddenly kicked Khushi hard in the stomach...


"How FUCKING DARE you!!!" Arnav was going red as his blood surged, the incentive to kill more alive in his veins than ever before...


She craned her neck and shot him a look of disgust, "This SERVANT is NOTHING compared to me..."


"You aren't even worthy to LOOK at her, bitch!" Arnav bellowed...


Lavanaya smiled, "How BLIND you are, Arnav...I lowered myself to work as a maid just to get to you...Look at how far my love for you goes!"


Grabbing Khushi's face, she lifted her hand and slapped the princess hard across the cheek. 


Waking with a start, she choked out a tormented sound as the pain began to tear through her...


The first words she heard were her husband's...


"You fucking lay a hand on her again and I will drive a dagger in your chest till you bleed out!" 


Arnav struggled against the chains, heaving them with pressure to break free as fierce growls reverberated from within him...


He could see that Khushi was dazed and confused but he didn't dare call out to her...the less attention they gave her, the more he could gain control and keep her from harm...


"Lavanaya," Evan laughed, "What a weak little hand you have..."


She laughed as she hoisted her hand back again and smacked Khushi ruthlessly once more as Arnav's loud NO! shook the room...


"I fucking SWEAR!" Arnav was ready to maul them..."I won't spare you for this!" 


Khushi gagged, crying out in pain...


She tried to shake free as she finally realised where she was, her eyes now seeking Arnav's...


"I'm here Khushi...Stay calm...Khushi..."


"Calm?" Evan snorted, "I don't want her CALM!" 


And he stalked towards her...


"DON'T YOU DARE TOUCH HER!!!" Arnav was gaining leverage with his chain, the iron shackle starting to slacken in the stone wall... 


But she was soon thrown up against the wall as Evan walloped her face hard...


Khushi's screams of pain had Arnav yanking harder at his chains, the wall behind him now shaking...


"I will drain the life from you! I will END YOU!"


"Stop shouting!" Lavanaya laughed, "I drugged a few guards with my distracting smile and left a trail of syringes on the opposite side of the castle...You're just wasting your breath..."


Arnav's eyes were brutal, "I SHOULD have killed you years ago..."


Evan smiled at the Prince, showing his crooked teeth as he backed away from Khushi...


"Good,"  Arnav thought, "Get away from her and try and hurt me..."


"You're helpless, Your Highness...I wonder how many enemies would be jealous, knowing that I have you at my mercy!"


Evan punched Arnav has hard as he could, his clenched fist clouting Arnav in the gut...


But the Prince barely moved, his abdominal muscles wielding the strength of thick steel.


"Fucking hell!" the man ground out as he tried to flex his stinging hand..."What are you!? Made of stone!?"


Lavanaya chuckled, "Evan it seems YOU have the weak hand...You're screaming like a girl..."


"You're both going to scream as I kill you!" Arnav snarled...


Laughing again, she marched forwards, standing just far enough away so Arnav couldn't make a move... "You had the NERVE to humiliate me in public, to threaten me! And now you threaten me AGAIN!? Well now I will threaten YOU! The baron wanted to harm the slut you married! But I want to harm YOU! So I joined forced with some of your enemies...They will help me take her from you...seeing as SHE is your weakness...But right now, I want you to suffer!"


His eyes were raging as he tugged relentlessly on the chains that bound him in the dank cold cell... "If you want me here, I'll stay! But you RELEASE her!!!"


"Why should I?..." Lavanaya flashed a sickly smile, "She is going to watch as the baron's lovely brother here, RUNS YOU THROUGH! Then I might let him play with her before I drag her to Evan's castle..."


Arnav's expression was barbaric..."You touch her one more time, and you will wish you were never born!"


Khushi dropped to her knees and screamed out muffled pleas through the cloth that covered her mouth...


Evan sneered, "Look at this little sprite..." he pulled at Khushi's hair...


"Get your hands OFF her!!!"


Hauling Khushi up off the ground, the rusty iron cuffs on her wrists clanged as she had no strength to lift her arms...


"You want to see how shit your demands are right now Prince!?"


And the baron's brother pulled Khushi against his body, one hand pulling at her covered privates, digging his fingers in, making her howl behind the gag...


Arnav went wild.


He shook and pulled at the chains with such force that part of the wall began to crumble, chunks of stone breaking off as his rage now hit mutilating force...


Evan instantly released the Princess, and Lavanaya flew a step back in horror..."Oh Shit! How is he doing this!?"


"Because I'm the fucking Prince bitch!!!" Arnav snarled..."And I'm going to KILL YOU."


Arnav could see that they were terrified of him...


"Kill ME!? You bastard! You could have HAD ME!!!!"


His stomach turned, "YOU?" his voice was full of contempt, "I am willing to die to protect my wife...But YOU?! I'm would die before I ever even CONSIDER you!"


With eyes igniting with hatred, Lavanaya shrieked, "For EACH threat, this tramp gets a STRIKE!" 


She stormed towards Khushi, pulled her hair hard and slapped her viciously twice against her face...


Arnav was fighting like a mad man again as Khushi screamed out in pain...


The wall behind the Prince started to rattle...


Evan stood up, his tone now disturbed and fearful..."Lavanaya, he's gonna get free soon..."


"Then let me knock out the dumb whore and leave her here to rot!" she bit out... "Let HER see what it's like to live without the person she loves!"


Lavanaya started to beat his wife over and over...slap after slap...


The utter devastation in Khushi's eyes was destroying him...


He needed to take control.


So Arnav demanded all the brainspace he could, and tried to think as the warrior...


They want to kill me?...


They want Khushi to feel like she's lost me?...


I am NOT in danger from them, but if they don't get their way, then Khushi is in extreme danger...


And the solution struck him hard...


I know how to end this...


Lifting his dark eyes, he challenged..."You DARE beat a defenseless woman, but do you have the fucking guts to TRY and kill me!?"


He could hear Khushi screaming a muffled NO...


His eyes locked onto hers, trying desperately to assure her that he would get them out, but she was distraught, past the point of being able to see straight...


"I get to beat HER! He gets to avenge his brother!"


Evan unsheathed the long sword from his belt and Arnav positioned himself...


"My Love, I'm sorry!" Arnav yelled...


And as his wife's gut wrenching cries hit his ears, he turned and the sword sliced through him...

"NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"


Arnav dropped to the ground...


The last thing he saw was the spark in Khushi's eyes extinguish...


A swift stampede of footsteps began to shake the castle...

But Khushi heard nothing, she couldn't breathe...


Her Prince lay dead before her...


"No...Arnav...No..." 


And the pain in her heart took over the burning in her cheeks...


Her body felt as cold as ice...


Even as tears dripped from her eyes, they formed like icicles around her heart...


"Fuck! Listen!" Lavanaya screamed..."The army is here! Hit her and lets get out of here!!! We have more people ready to take her out later!"


Evan withdrew his fist and knocked Khushi out hard...


And this time, she welcomed the darkness...




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



Lavayana and Evan had barely reached the upper levels of the castle when they were immediately apprehended...


"We have them!!!!!" was resounding off the walls as Jacob bounded over...


"Where are the Prince and Princess!!!" 


Lavanaya scoffed at him and looked away, but an officer harshly gripped her jaw lifting his sword into view, "Answer the man!"


"The lower jails. Not like you can do anything about-"


"GET THEM OUT!" Jacob screamed as they marched with fury towards the jails...




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




Having to hear the Baron's brother hit Khushi, was one of the hardest, most enraging things Arnav ever had to suffer through...


Faking a fatal blow was his only way to ward them off, but hearing Khushi's empty and crushed screams, made his heart snap in two...


He remained still with the long sword wedged between his arm and his side...


"They are even too STUPID to see there is no BLOOD!?"


He had turned at the exact moment of the stabbing to escape any actual wound as he held the blade against the fabric of his shirt near his ribs...and he had definitely heard the final threat of coming back to take Khushi...


Never. Going. To. Happen.


The second Evan and Lavanaya escaped the room, he jumped to his feet, the cutlass dropping to the ground...


Wrapping the chains once in his hand, he howled a death defying roar and pulled the chain from the concrete wall...


Thick Iron crosspieces fell out of large cavities in the stone as he dragged the chain with him as he rushed to her side...


Instantly she was in his arms, he pulled the gag from her mouth and brought his mouth to hers..."Khushi...Khushi I'm alive! Khushi sweetheart! Hear me! PLEASE Hear me!!!"


His hands roamed over her, her cheeks were battered from the attacks, but he knew that the severe damage was inside her mind...


The castle was now bursting at the seams with the royal army...


And they stormed into the dungeons...


"Prince Arnav! Sir! We have the infiltraters!!!"


Arnav shouted at his friend, "Jacob! Get us out of the chains! Fucking hurry! I need to get her out of here!"


"Is she-"


Arnav was infuriated..."She's beaten, but she thinks I'm dead!"


"Fuck!" Jacob grunted as the keys to the chain cuffs were speedily passed to him from guards outside...


"SHIT, I need her to wake up!" 


Arnav was shaking as he released Khushi and then himself...


Not bothering to wait, he swept her up in his arms...


He took two steps at a time as he ran up the stairs, pushing past every officer who had been searching the grounds...


"Khushi...please...FUCKING HEAR ME! I'm alive!"


But she was out cold, tears blotching her face...


He carried her down the corridor and commanded, "DOCTOR! FAST!"


The staff were rushing in every direction as he bellowed again...


Arnav's eyes were lethal, "FUCKING FAST!!!!!!!!"


Shoving the door open, it was nearly blasted off it's hinges he carried her into their room...


Arnav tried frantically to wake her...


"...Khushi...please...wake up...I'm not dead! I had to get them out! They were going to kill us, I had to think tactically...PLEASE TELL ME YOU'RE HEARING THIS!"


He pulled Khushi closer, his voice cracking... "Khushi...please Khushi...I'm here...I'm alive...God, please let her hear me..."


Wrapping her in his steely embrace, he whispered, "I'm alive..." over and over until the doctor rushed in...


Arnav lay her down and stayed over her, his hands never leaving her skin, touching her, needing her to know he was alive...


"Her head, She was knocked out..."


The doctor nodded as he pressed her skull, "No concussion, there is swelling, but no concussion..." he bent lower, "Her neck is fine...the welts on her face will calm, but some will bruise..."


Arnav was becoming manic again.


The woman that he loved was unconscious and the last sight she had witnessed was him being 'killed'...


The pain in his chest was now acute..."Wake her!"


"My Prince, she is very likely to be in shock, just let her-"


"WAKE HER!!!"


"Sir, why the urgency to-"


"Because she thinks I'm dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"


The doctor looked up fast..."What?!"


His teeth clenched and he snarled..."Wake her!..."


"Prince Arnav, I-"


"Khushi..." his heart was blasting so fast, it struck him with pain..."Wake the fuck up! I'm not dead! WAKE UP!"


And her eyelids fluttered...


"Yes..." he could hardly contain the tremors in his voice..."Yes...Khushi! I'm here! I'm alive!"


Her eyes slowly drifted open...


Arnav hauled her up into his embrace, his hand behind her head as he tried to lock eyes with her...


"Khushi...I'm here...I've got you...Khushi?..." Arnav shook her gently..."Khushi!?"


"Wait!" the doctor ordered...


Arnav froze, her eerie blank eyes now scaring him shitless...


"Your Highness?" the doctor flashed a small light in her eyes...


They were glassed over...


No focus.


It was as though, she was gone...


"What...What's wrong!?" Arnav was primal...


"She's not responsive...Her mental state not functioning..."


Struggling to rein in his rage, he shook her hard, "Fuck, No...NO! NO! Khushi I'm alive!"


The doctor tried to get Arnav's attention...


"She's in severe shock...If she thinks you were killed, that's the last thing her subconscious accepted...she's in a state of psychosis..."


Arnav's composure shattered, his hands shook and he pressed his mouth to hers, talking loud..."Khushi! No! Not You! Wake up! Listen to me! I'm NOT DEAD!"


The doctor held onto Arnav's shoulder, "Be calm with her...She's not here right now..."


"She IS! I'm holding her! This can't happen!"


He trembled so hard that he was certain the doctor could feel and see his fear...


"Sir, she's in a trance state, her mind truly believes you're no longer with her...She needs to come out of this willingly...but, I fear, with the belief that you're dead, she may not be able-"


"GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"


Jacob, who had been hovering at the door, ushered the doctor away as fast as he could...


Alone.


Watching his wife mentally slip away, was now fuelling inside him a rush of anger and outright fury so compelling he was afraid of what he might do...


It was the same rage that burned inside him as he sliced the baron...


The pain that came seeing Khushi fade in his arms was far more horrific than any agony he could inflict on anyone...


"Come back to me..." he rasped...


She merely blinked, no emotion surfacing...


Her eyes were empty...


The cord to her emotions was so fractured that all Arnav could feel from her was an echo of desolation...


"Khushi...come BACK to me!..." his heart was becoming frenzied to breach the ice that encompassed her mind...


A sudden sweat began to break out over her face as she blinked faster...

Her subconscious was attempting to obey him and float to the surface, but the nightmare inside her was fighting back with a vengeance...


Arnav could see how traumatic the damage was...


The love between them had been the only thing keeping her together, and seeing him killed caged her...


"Khushi...You can hear me...I KNOW you can...try to focus my love..."


The bond that was between them was all powerful, and Arnav knew it...


"You CAN do this my love, PLEASE look at me..."


And her gaze hit his...


"Yes..." he inhaled faster, "Yes Khushi look at me..."


But all she could see was a blurry figure, her mind playing his death like a scattered explosion...


There was no reaction...


Arnav choked back his pain and tried again..."Khushi...Say something..."


Her lips parted...


"You can hear me!" 


It was evident that her heart was trying to override her pain, but the burden of agony in her mind was too great...

"Khushi! You CAN hear me sweeetheart...PLEASE say something..."


Letting out soft pants, her heart had no feeling as she whispered..."He's gone..."


A stifled bark came from Arnav as his mouth curved to a snarl..."No! I'm NOT! I'm here! Khushi!"


He gripped her hard, frantic for her to wake up...


"He's dead..." her voice was blank...


The greater part of her spirit simply gone...


Tensing his fingers on her scalp, he wrapped her against him, not even air could pass through themm...


Looking deep into her vacant eyes, he could see that she didn't even recognize him...


"NO! I WILL NOT ALLOW THIS!!!" he commanded in a voice full of  authority..."I am here!!!"


Khushi breathed the words again..."I saw him die..."


His body was clenched so tight he was sure his joints would pop, "I AM HERE! I'M HOLDING YOU!!!"


Moving his hands along her skin, he forced his touch on her...


"God I can't lose you Khushi! Wake UP! I'm here!"


But her lips parted to repeated the same words...


"Come back to me! I NEED you! Khushi I need you!" agony laced his voice...


Khushi was numb, she couldn't make out any touch...


"My Prince..." her tone was vacant and crippled..."My Prince is gone..." 


And before he could reply, she fainted as the silence in her soul took over...


"No..." he breathed..."No..."


Unable to draw in air, he lay her back against the bed...


Staring blindly for what felt like an eternity, his own emotions fractured...


Covering her body with his, he let his tears flood her hair, her face, stream down her neck...


"Khushi...please...come back to me..."


He wept, his heart full of daggers and poison...


When he finally quieted, his eyes began to acidify...


The monster inside him emerged...


"They did this to you..." he ground out..."And they will pay...NOW..."


Stomping from the room, he came face to face with Jacob, and his father...


"Son? Is she-"


"QUIET!" 


He was on a mission with ONE clear purpose, and wasn't about to be diverted...


"Leave the door open. Guard her. No one but the doctor can enter...if she doesn't wake, DO NOT GO IN. I will be back..."


"Sir?!" Jacob started but instantly reared back when Arnav turned...


"Your orders are FUCKING CLEAR!"


The King tried to get through to his son, "Arnav! She will come out of this! Arnav!"


But he disappeared down the stairs...


"Sire, what-"


The king shook his head, "Let him go. He is doing what needs to be done. What I have done many times over in the past..."


Jacob nodded, "I hope he gives them hell..."


"Look at him, He is the warrior I always knew he would be...And finally, a Warrior who will avenge for the loss he's facing, the loss of love..."



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





Arnav entered the jails...


"Where are they!" his question resonated in the cells...


Knowing instantly what their Prince wanted, the jailers pointed towards the rooms towards the end...


After a few single long strides, his eyes locked onto Evan...


The man's eyes were now wider than his head would allow as he clamoured back against the jagged wall...


"NO! NO!!! She made me do it! She wanted revenge against you! It's Lavanaya's fault!!!"


But a single step closer put Arnav within the distance he needed to end the man with little more than a flick of his wrist...


His arms bulging with muscles struck, slamming the smaller man against the concrete, as he cracked his head against the stone...


Blood began to gush down the wall behind him as Arnav roared, "I am going to KILL you both!!!"


Gasping, his feet high above the floor, Evan choked from the grip of Arnav's palm on his throat...


"It was HER! She want...ed...to...get...reven-"


And the life was drained out of him, the terrifying face of the prince as his last memory in life...


Arnav's fury was still not subsiding, he snapped the man's neck, feeling the dense vertebrae shatter, fingers digging into the last of the muscles before he dropped him to the floor.


Marching from the cell, he stormed the next room and found Lavanaya...


She stood in the corner, smiling..."I don't know how you survived, but I hope your slut never gets over the pain of seeing that hap-"


Before she could finish, she was thrown clear across the room, hitting the walls and bars with a loud bang...


Her harsh screams of agony now rang around...


The Prince's eyes glinted hearing the snaps of her bones as her certain limbs were now angled in a distorted fashion...


Arnav was now a panting monster, eyes full of murder as he glowered down at her...


His pulse was now thundering at the bulge of his neck...


"You asshole!" she rasped, "Your wife is going to be dead inside forever! Now YOU can see in her what I saw in you!"


Kicking her hard in the gut, he stomped down hard on her broken leg and arm...


The jail was now echoing with tortured wails..."She'll be taken! Just you wait-AAARRGHHH!'


Vibrating with utter indignation, Arnav felt energy build up, crest, and seep out as a low endless howl of rage as he pulled out his dagger and rammed it hard into her shoulder, twisting the knife as her blood bubbled out of the gaping wound...


The last noises she made were gurgles before she passed out...


Leaving the knife implanted in her, he shoved her aside...


"Lets see YOU live like THIS!"


Standing tall, he bared his teeth and snarled as he stormed down the walkway.


"And if there is ANYONE in here, who is THINKING about harming my wife, the same will be done to you!!!!!!!!!!!"




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





The second Jacob saw him, he knew it was done, "Arnav?"


Staggering towards his room, the Prince's eyes searched for Khushi..."Has she-"

Jacob spoke fast, "She awoke and sat up, the doctor went in...But, I'm sorry, she keeps repeating that you died...no one can get through to her..."


"Prince Arnav..." the doctor approached carefully, "She is seated inside, refusing food or water...we can't reach her, you need to try, you need to get to her mind, fast..."


The King moved closer, "Son, she thinks she lost you...but you KNOW her, you CAN get through to her..."


Tears were now a waterfall down his face.


Arnav DID know her.


Her every breath, the music of her hum, her purity, her constant light...


Desperation expanded in his chest..."I need to hurry, I need to shower...I can't go in like this..."


Blood covered him, the rage of his conquest still tarnishing his skin...


The King nodded, "Take the room there..."


Arnav was swaying as he hurried into the adjacent room and stripped of his clothes...


He took a shower in water so hot that his skin burned...


His heart stung, but not with regret for his actions, for the consuming sadness that he'd seen in Khushi's eyes when he faked his death...


Not bothering to dry himself, he pulled on a shirt and pants rushing back at the door to his room...


His eyes took her in, she sat almost lifeless...


The marks on her face, red and hot...


He wanted nothing more than to hold her, to touch her, and was about to do anything necessary to wake her from the mental nightmare...


"I want this floor cleared. I want the castle on lockdown. I want NO interruptions. Because I swear, I will kill ANYONE who enters this room once I close this door..."


His murderous eyes lifted to Jacob, drifted to his father, and to every other guard in the hall as he spat out..."ANYONE..."


And he disappeared into the room that held his wife...


Leaning against the door, he heard marching, the layer of the castle being cleared...


Not willing to wait, he stalked towards her...


Her lost eyes still gray, without spark...


But her blinking was showing how hard she tried to suppress the pain...


He knew she was in anguish, but their intense bond was clawing it's way past her desperate resistance.


Peeling his clothes away, he tore the sheets off the bed and saw her clad in a thin white dress...


"Khushi..." 


she blinked.


"You can hear me."


He waited.


"I can hear you." she replied.


"Do you know who I am?" 


His fists clenched as he waited again...


"You are no one."


Defenses rising, his nostrils flared, "I'm your husband..."


Not one emotion showed as she said, "My husband is dead."


He growled low and eerily, "I am NOT dead. I'm HERE..."


Blinking faster, he could see her fighting, clutching at the distance, battling to maintain the sense of endless nothing that had carried her to the cold ice that froze her heart...


She didn't want to be Khushi anymore...


Oblivion had become her armour.


If she hid from herself, and what she thought was reality, there would be no more pain.


"Look at me..." he commanded...


"You are no one." she muttered blankly, not one single emotion showing...


"No...NO...NO!!!!!!!!!!"


Tormented to the point of madness, he roared...


He stormed their room...


The need to destroy and quell the devestation in his soul hit him with mass force...


And the rampage began...


The sheer agony of seeing his wife in such a state of severe pain sent him into hysteria...


He picked up furniture and reduced it to splinters...

"Wake up!!!!!"


Desperate for her to feel something, he no longer cared if he scared her...


Shattered glass vibrated around the room...


"If you don't come back to me, I will destroy everyone and everything!!! I've said before that I refuse to be without you!!! I can't make it through this life without you!!! Wake the fuck up!!!"


His pained screams began to distort her blackout...


Her heart could hear him.


A wave of bright reality shocked her to the moment, her husband's heartbreak seeping into her soul, making her gasp out loud.


He stiffened at the sound, and saw her eyes screw shut as she whispered..."No..."


His bulked up body was now bulging with energy..."NO?! That's all I get!? COME BACK TO ME!!!"


Now standing tall at the foot of their bed, he kept up his low level rumbling growl...


Her chest was now rising and falling rapidly...


"I'M FUCKING ALIVE KHUSHI! Wake up or THIS will kill me!? I WON'T SURVIVE!"


His last words slammed down into her mind...


She flew up off the bed...


His anger fled and his spirit soared seeing ANY form of emotion...


She cowered in the corner of the room, pulling at her hair, her head starting to pound...


Pouncing on her, he gripped her shoulders, "Khushi, LOOK AT ME!"


The blurry figure was still all she could see, but the sound of his voice was starting to break through...


Slamming her eyes shut as she tried miserably to fight him off..."no..."


"YES KHUSHI!!!" Now that he had touched her, the fire inside him doubled..."LOOK WHO I AM!


"no...no...you are no one..." she said louder...


He pushed her up agianst the wall with a thud, "I am the crowned Prince Arnav Singh Raizada! I am married to YOU, Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada! I am standing before you, ALIVE AND BREATHING, and I command you to look at me!!!!!"


And realism hammered back into her.


The hurt and grief, that had been unbearable, making her unable to feel, was being pulverised severely... 


Her hands flew up to her own chest, scratching hard at her skin, each breath hurt..."NO! THE PAIN IS TOO MUCH!"


The corruption of her mind was beginning to melt away, and Arnav could see it.


He pried her fingers away as he rubbed the heat of his hand where she was so very clearly hurting...


Her breathing was too hard to see straight, "NO!!! WHOEVER YOU ARE! GET AWAY!!!"


And she kicked and pushed, but he was immovable...


He was being mutilated with heartache..."Khushi PLEASE sweetheart!!!"


But she was now in a full meltdown, her screams and lucid anger soon turned into extreme gut wrenching sobs...


"Yes!  Yes! Feel something! I'm here! I'm HERE!!!!!"


The complete devastation in her weeping was torturing him...


She had her eyes shut, trying to will it away, "...no...God no...My Arnav...is gone..."


He couldn't take it.


"FUCKING ENOUGH!"


One swipe and the dress she wore was ripped off...

It was time for force.


She shreiked out as he fisted the lace of her thin panties and shredded them...


Throwing her to the bed his hand gripped her brutally..."OPEN. YOUR. EYES."


And she howled.


"I WILL NEVER! MY ONLY LOVE IS GONE!"


Her scream felt like a balm on his heart...


"I am here Khushi! Keep screaming! SHOW me you're still with me! Show me you can hear me!" 


"NO! NO! YOU ARE NO ONE!"


Clawing and scratching, she raged at her Alpha strong husband, punishing him with bites and screams, but her attacks made no difference as he effortlessly restrained her...


Holding her down, keeping her arms vised above her, he held her thighs apart with his own and thrust his raging arousal into her...


Her body jolted and convulsed as the shock tore a scream from her throat...


The feel of his thick length inside her was now reaching her heart, splaying it's heat all through her desensitised nerves, and she was terrified...


He pressed his mouth to her heart, slowly moving over her jiggling breasts, sucking her nipples deep as she continued to fight him...


He tried to kiss her mouth but she was primitive as he controlled her flailing limbs...


The heart within him was blasting as he penetrated her slowly, over and over, forcing pleasure out even as her brokenhearted wails seared his senses...


"You are MINE! MINE KHUSHI! You can try to escape, but you are TRAPPED here! I will take you any way I can! Because you need ME! You need THIS! NOW HEAR ME!!!!"


His words hit her soul so loud that her heart fluttered even as her body oozed fluid over him...


"Oh God...Oh God..." her heart was controlling her moans, as her mind demanded her to reject reality...


Thrusting steadily, he rolled his hips, forcing her to feel what her body was demanding until the tsunami of a violent climax blasted through her resistance until she reached a shattering, consuming orgasm that made her back bow and channel gush...


She screamed out with pained pleasure as her arms continued to strike out, her hips bucking...


The awakening of her emotions was so overwhelmingly destructive that she was drowning in it...


"NO!!!!" she howled..."I LOST HIM! NO!!! ARNAV!!!"


He felt her senses starting to break as he rammed ruthlessly back into her...


"OPEN YOUR FUCKING EYES!!!"


Her body has weakened momentarily from the climax, but as he stoked the fire inside her once more, she felt the pull and burn of another...


"No! NO! NO! I can't feel this! I want to be with him!!!"


She was kicking like a maniac...

Holding her hips in his hands, he speared his iron erection into her..."YOU'RE ALREADY WITH ME! OPEN YOUR EYES!"


"NO!"


His own shattered heart mixed with fury..."Listen to me, WIFE! I'm going to FUCK you into oblivion until you see me!!! OPEN. YOUR. EYES!"


She screamed out, coughing and groaning, but he yanked her body back down when she tried to squirm away, impaling her deeply...


"NO! He died! I saw him die! I can't live! My heart...Oh God my heart..."


He forced his cock deeper into her as she tried to push him out...


His body sensed her struggles and he fought back with dominance...


Arnav growled like a predator, barely able to form the words, "FIGHT ME!!! PLEASE! FIGHT ME! Because that wall around your heart is COMING DOWN!!"


The initial aggression was all hers, Khushi was so far gone that she hardly noticed how she yelled when all the rage and pain inside her cracked out of her heart.


It was the worst pain she'd ever known...


Arnav was gasping traumatically, as the love of his life was coming out of her closed and shattered state...


"The...the pain...oh God..."


Arnav roared savagely, "I'm alive!!! Look at who is inside of you! Look at who is making love to you! This wont stop Khushi! I will fuck you until you SEE ME!"


She could hardly breathe as her conscious was now breaking into her heart, the power of his words incinerating her...


"Khushi...I know it hurts...But I AM HERE! I am INSIDE YOU! SEE ME!"


And amidst the brutal thrusts, and the ripping tortured breaths, he heard her ruptured whisper...


"Arnav..." 


And a sharp spark shot between them that shot actual pain into their blood...


"I'm here..." he breathed against her mouth...


She choked out his name again..."Arnav..."


"Khushi...I'm Here."


His penetrations were now becoming harder, forcing and tearing pleasure out of her every nerve...

Bracing her face delicately, he demanded her gaze..."I'm here my love, you will never lose me..."


And she saw him.


He nodded as he speared into her with barbaric force, "Khushi, my Princess..."


And the catastrophic cramp of her orgasm began to strangle his cock...


Mouth agape, sucking in deep pants of air, Khushi saw him clearly as her climax reduced her nervous system to nothing...


He roughly held himself inside as an ocean of her ejaculate streamed over and around him...


She shook torrentially, and for the first time, he had to use considerable strength to hold her down...


He slowed his penetrations, but continued to thrust...


Staring down at her, his eyes waited, hoping that she was back...


"...Arnav..." her voice was a whisper...


"I'm here sweetheart, do you see me?" his voice showed his desperation to reclaim her...


"...Arnav...Oh my God..."


"Do you see me sweetheart?"


With eyes now fastened tight to his, her tears poured out as she rasped"...yes..."


Her breaking tone shook his soul...


"...My Khushi..."


All of a sudden, her arms came up around him and she clung to him hysterically...


"No no, shhhh, shhhh I'm here, I have you...feel me...hear me..."


His voice was full of authority as he twisted his hand in her hair, and brought his mouth against hers...


"You...you're here..."


"Yes my love...shhhh..."


She began to choke out sobs that were only anaesthetised by the deep and slow thrusting of his body into hers...


"I'm here...listen to my voice my love...I'm making love to you...You needed me, and fuck, I need you more than anything...the way you climax around my flesh is something I hunger for, hearing you scream is my favourite sound...You are mine...the very reason for my existence..." his words now became harsher as he felt her gspot swelling, her contractions starting again..."I swear, I am here...with you! You will NEVER be rid of me...EVER!


Her tears fell into her hair as her face flushed, her
 freed mind and conscious finally grasping what Arnav was telling her......


"You're Alive..." 


"Yes my Princess...I'm here..." 


Her gaze seeped into his soul, their hearts beating painfully fast, their union stronger than ever...


"And now you're going to come..."


His words were a command to her body, which he owned completely...


And a war broke out inside her womb, the milking and clenching of a piercing orgasm breaking over muscle and bone...


"ARNAV!!!!!!!!"


And with an extended howl of ecstasy, he took her mouth in a desperate kiss as his body shot the largest burst ever of semen straight into her womb...


He shook torrentially, but soon demanded his sanity as he pulled her contorting body into his arms, his mouth coming down onto hers...


But now, she could do nothing but whimper as her sex gushed unmercifully and spasms claimed her body.


"It's alright my love...I'm here...I'm not leaving you..."


His hands slid into her hair, holding her head in place as he brushed his lips over her face, kissing away the river of tears...


"Arnav..." she moaned as her weakened hands tried to hold him closer..."Arnav hold me..."


"Shhhh...shhhh, I have you..."


Her breaths were heaving, "I saw...I saw you-"


"I'm alive...I had to think tactically...they were hurting you, threatening you AND me..."


His forehead rested on hers as the weight of his body sedated her shuddering breaths...


"I never thought this would happen to you though...I never thought your heart and mind would disappear on me...Seeing how empty you were..." 


He groaned, his heart unable to take the memory...


"I...I saw you die..."


Pressing up, he lifted his torso slightly and motioned for her to look down...


"The sword was between my arm and my side...I HAD to get them out...I'm not injured Khushi, but I would give anything to have the pain you feel, inflicted upon on me instead..."


Her shaking fingers touched his chest, running over where the stab would have been...


Covering her hand with his, he moved it to his heart..."See, Alive...beating...I was never going to leave you...I made a promise..."


Her lips were parted, her eyes were raw...


Seeing her so fragile destroyed him...


He crushed his mouth against hers, the kiss hungry and hard...


Arnav kissed her until her body surrendered under his, her lips swollen as he licked his way out of her mouth...


Tears came involuntarily as she begged him, "Please...hold me..."


The soft groan that followed had him fighting back his own breakdown..."I've got you...I've got you my love...rest in my arms..."


Her mouth opened, but nothing came out...


"Shhh...shhh...It's okay...Talk to me...Talk to me Khushi..."


"...afraid..." was all she could manage...


His eyes hardened, "Tell me why you are afraid..."


Her gladiator was back, alert and ready for her to command...


"If I sleep, will you be here when I wake?'


"I will be right here." he vowed, he didn't even hesitate...


She felt his softened flesh pull out, and his firm, big hand cover her sex..


Her eyes widened and saw the resolute valor in his expression...


"I solemnly swear that when you wake, you will be in my arms...and you will fall asleep to this..."


A slender warmth breached her as he pumped two long fingers carefully into her, scissoring and stretching her tender tissues...


"You will feel this as you close your eyes and dream...my touch...my hands...I will be doing this until you wake..."


She hiccuped, her reawakened emotions now stretched too far..."Will you kiss me please..."


The world faded into nothing as he lowered his head, consuming her with his mouth...


His lips were soft but insistent, demanding entrance as he spoke...


"I'm here...I'm alive..." he pumped his fingers lightly in and out of her core..."No one will ever take you from me...I am safe, and more importantly, YOU are safe...I will make sure you are safe for eternity...Sleep sweetheart..."


And he kissed her until her lips went slack against his, and her breath was steady on his skin...


He stayed beside her in the bed, his fingers pushing and pulsing inside her...


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


Her sex let down a gush of her arousal around his hand...


"Damn, my Khushi...your body knows my touch..."


His fingers began to demand her reaction...


"Sleep my Princess...but I know you need this, your body is telling me...come for me..."


She was now unconsciously writhing beneath him as her cream trickled out of her and over his fingers in a furious rush...


And her climax happened, the burn of her orgasm intensified and melted into a pleasure pain that burst through her blood...


"Yes, my love...shhhh, I'm here my sweetheart..."


She remained sound asleep, but breathless and still clenching around the fingers that purged her pleasure...


"Good girl...my Khushi..."


And his emotions was now stripped bare...


He pressed soft kisses to the new faint bruises forming on her cheekbones...


"...your happiness is my sole priority...forever..."





...........





Nearly three hours later, after drawing another orgasm from her fainted body, and alternating fingers as he licked them clean, she began to stir...


Acutely alert, he continued his slow penetrations of her core..."I'm with you my love..."


"A...Ar...Arnav..."


He came over her, his gaze ready to lock onto hers, "Open up my love...Look at me..."


"Please...tell me...I'll see you when I open my eyes..."


His fingers curled and pressed gently on her gspot, "I vow on the almighty God that you will see me..."


And her eyelids lifted...


His heart lit up, even though it was aching, "Hi...Hi sweetheart..."


Her lips trembled and the tears came...


"No no no, I'm here...I'm here..."


"...mine..."


He  growled with pride as he nodded slowly..."All yours...You command me...You own me...You possess me..."


"I want..."


Arnav waited...


"I want you to hurt them..."


His eyes instantly flashed with darkness as a snarl broke out, "I love you...I never imagined you like this, but I LOVE IT..."


Khushi panted, "I want you to HURT THEM! They tried to take you from me!"


Arnav groaned with desire..."You are my EQUAL...My strong, INCREDIBLE wife..."


His penetrating fingers were making it impossible for her body to not react...


"Please..." she was shuddering with delirium, her body losing control..."Please I can't bare knowing they could try again and-"


"My Princess...I have already, irreversibly destroyed them"


As though a weight physically lifted off her, a gratified emotion reared up in her eyes...


"I have reduced them both to NOTHING but broken bones and blood...NO ONE gets away with threatening us...but more importantly, NO ONE is allowed to hurt you, and make it out alive..."


"No...Doesn't matter about ME! They tried to kill you..."


His chest rumbled, "Dont' you fucking say that! They were never going to succeed killing me, but they DID succeed hurting you...and THAT is what fucking matters!..."


Her hands now clutched his shoulders..."NO! I CAN'T LOSE YOU! YOU!"


Noises were coming from his throat like those of a vicious hungry animal...


They both scared and excited her...


He could smell how aroused she was, and it it only took him seconds to surge forward and prod her slit with the swollen head of his erection...


Shoving his way into her, he took her hips in a harsh grip that would prevent any resistance...


Inside she felt like velvet as he bellowed out his ecstasy of being within her...


"You, my love, feel INCREDIBLE..."


With one hand, he held the back of her head in a tight grasp...


He could see her face, the dilation of her eyes...


She was awake, alive and aware...


"Tell me I'm yours again Khushi..."


"You're...you're mine Arnav..."


"Forever." he said with a quiet power...

She could hardly move from her position under him, and she didn't want to, as his dark eyes were locked onto hers...


Her lashes lowered when he hilted, a shaking breath passing her lips...


He pounded, the beast inside him holding her down, her cheeks flushing...


Khushi screamed and moaned as he conquered her body and bent it to his will...


These were the sounds of pleasure...and surrender...


"Harder! Please! Please show me you're here...!"


Arnav's eyes bore into hers...his fighting equal, the woman who demanded justice to avenge him...


Knowing she was as desperate for him as he was for her made him snarl with passion...


She was excessively slick, so much that the wet noises of their joining blended with their sighs and moans to make sweet music...


Her eyes travelled from his erotic face, over a muscled chest, a defined torso, to where his jutting length penetrated her body...


The veins throbbed at it's base in preparation to erupt into her...


To know that his thick long organ would soon saturate her vaginal walls made her insides began to flutter and her hands begin to shake...


He knew how to draw out her need, how to stoke it and tease...


Rhythmic squeezing of her sex showed her impending orgasm as he growled..."You command me! You own EVERY PART OF ME! And I need you more than fucking AIR! More than LIFE itself! Let me feel you come!"


The animal inside him wanted to roar as he slammed into the body that was his to pleasure and protect...


He had another urge to shout out at the blissful pain of ejaculate gathering in his groin for eruption...


Pumping his hips mindlessly, she came howling his name...


"Arnav!!!!!!!!!!!"


The tight contractions of her orgasm were twisting onto his flesh...


"My love...Fuck YES oh FUCKING fuck YES!!!"


Arnav wrung the throbbing orgasm out of her and he had no choice but to explode alongside her...


Her sex milked his cock desperately as his lava of sperm spurted down the length of his erection and into her shuddering core...


He squeezed her with each pulse of his shaft, growling with euphoria...


Khushi could feel continuous tremors in her belly, as she felt the repetitive bursts of his semen hit her cervix...


Arnav was unable to hold back sounds of elation as their bodies were in harmony...


Pulling her legs around his waist, he yanked her hips closer, angled her pelvis to stimulate the place inside her that refused to stop pulsating and let her take every drop of cum that her body could squeeze from him... 

"My husband..."


"Yes..." he rasped...


"My Prince..."


"Yes..."


"You're with me..."


"ALWAYS..." his biting tone assured her...


"I...I can't keep my eyes open again..."


"And I'm not leaving you for anyone or anything...so sleep without fear of anything...NO ONE will harm you...NO ONE...you are safe..."


"And..." she suppressed a yawn..."And you?"


He leaned down fast and began to kiss her, brushing his open mouth over hers..."I am alive...I am still pulsing inside you...and I am NEVER leaving you...The first thing you will see when you wake, will be ME."


His honest, and true declaration settled into her heart, and she fell asleep...


The moment he felt her breathing steadily, he pulled her closer into his embrace and took a deep breath...


"My God..." he closed his eyes, trying to regulate his breathing..."If you only knew how deeply I love you...I don't think you ever will fully...I can't even explain it...This is the kind of love with one soul and two bodies...And I promise you," he kissed her forehead, "I am now your eternal bodyguard...No one wins against me...but you, you conquered my heart...YOU are the only person to reduce me to defeat...You have the victory Khushi...YOU and ONLY YOU..."


His robust arms tightened..."Mine...Mine for life...for Eternity..."




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




And the knocking came again...


But the rage he thought he would feel wasn't there...only annoyance...


He surveyed their situation on the bed and carefully arranged the blanket over her more...


"Enter..."


The door opened slowly and his mother appeared with the physician tagging behind.


"Arnav...I know what you commanded, but I came up to the floor and there was silence...Does she need a doctor?"


He snickered, "Let me guess, dad sent YOU because he was too scared?"


"Arnav," she smiled and paused for a moment, "Yes that's basically it..."


Finding a small grin creep over his lips, he sighed, "She's okay, the doctor can check her head again quickly, but then I want you both out..."


His mother nodded, "Okay, we understand..."


The physician gently pressed her cranium and she shook...


"Shhh....shhhh." Arnav crooned into her hair...


"Only slight concussion, how is her mental state...?"


"She remembers everything, her mind woke up. She's frail, but she will be ok..."


The queen gave a sad smile, "I knew you would get through to her..."


"Okay, " The physician whispered, "When she wakes up, let me give her a shot that will help with any pain or headache...She may still wake and find ways to shield her emotions, but you  need to break through that, stop her from blanking out..."


Arnav nodded, "You know I fucking will...now please get lost...I need her to rest..."


The queen rolled her eyes, but before they disappeared out the door, he called out..."Tell dad and Jacob that I'm sorry..."


His mum gave a smirk, "They know...but I'll tell them anyway..."




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



Arnav felt her move...


"Don't close up on me sweetheart..."


His brain was beating with staccatto thuds...


And what he thought might be reassuring, soon sped downhill...


Khushi rolled away before even opening her eyes...


"Sweetheart? It's ok...I'm here...You're with me..."


She sat up and he was, for once, too scared to make a move...


Arnav saw her shoulders shiver, and she stood up...


His eyes were instantly drawn to her soft skin, and delicious curves...


If she was unconfortable in her nakedness, she didn't show it...


And that sent a jolt of desire straight from his scrotum and down the length of his flesh...


Getting to his feet, but staying on his side of the bed, he was wary of her..."Khushi...talk to me..."


taking a few steps away from the bed, she turned to face him, but didn't meet his eyes as she spoke...


"I want to be alone...I want you to leave..."


Her words cut like glass, and her her voice had far too much emotion in it for him to believe her...


And the sting of anger and defiance burst free inside him...


Rounding the bed in less than a second, he stalked up close, invading her space, her breathing speeding up rapidly..."Look me in the eyes and say that again...because I know damn well you are lying to me, and that is NOT fucking acceptable."


Finally looking up at him, she held his gaze with a slowly blanking glare, despite the tears that shimmered..."I want to be alone...I want you leave..."


He began to walk forwards, and she veered away until her back hit the wall.


She tried to side step, but he slammed his palms on the wall behind her, caging her in...


Turing away, her eyes closed and tears dripped out...


"Khushi...If what you said is true, why the tears?"


Her heart started to hurt, and she shoved at his chest..."Just leave me alone!"


Grabbing her wrists, he pulled them behind her and cuffed them in his large hand as he forced the weight of his body into her...


He watched her face as he felt his chest become strangled..."Khushi...You're hurting inside...I can SEE it...TALK to me..."


Trying to suck in a breath, she was sobbing as she spoke, "I thought...I thought I lost you...I...I..."


Arnav waited, needing to hear her...


"My heart can't take this...I can't...I...If I lose you again...I'll...I'll..."


She was spiriling out of control....


"Shhh...shhh...I'm here..." he whispered over her mouth...


Instantly her body slumped in his grasp and his free arm held her against his muscled form...


"I...don't want you to...to go away...Oh...Oh god...I'm...I'm sorry..." and she wept...


Arnav held her closer and let her cry...


His brain was in overdrive, the rage he was feeling building and building...


The need to rebuild her life was now his main goal...


He knew her body was healing, but the marks on her soul were still open wounds that he needed to soothe...


His own spirit was keeling over, so entirely broken up that he was struggling to keep it together for her...


Eventually she was exhausted...


"Forgive me Sir..." she rasped out...


Arnav could hear her pain, the hurt, the anger, the devastation, the sincerity...but upon hearing that tortured word fall from her lips, he growled long and hard...


"Do not call me that..." his words were biting.


Her small frame shook...


"Please forgive me Sir..."


His eyes slammed closed...


His teeth clenched...


It was as though his anger was a living thing trying to claw it's way out of his skin...


Working hard to maintain the monster inside, he snarled his words..."Why are you calling me that Khushi?"


She began to hyperventilate, "I...I am nothing...I am supposed to go unseen...and...Oh God...I will thrown to the streets...You said you would cast me away...Oh God I'll be left with nothing..."


Arnav's emotions cracked...

The confusion and grief inside her had reduced his Princess to the frightened servant he once tried to break...


And this knowlegde was making his head feel like it would explode.


"Khushi..." he warned, forcing himself to keep his reactions as calm as possible..."Try to think clearly...You're my WIFE...You are in no danger...you NEVER were...there was NO way, even then, that I was going to let you go...and NOW?! They'd have to kill me for REAL to take you..."


She tried to shake her head, tears flicking off her cheeks..."Sir...Forgive me...please..."


THIS FUCKING STOPS NOW!


She was so fragile against him, and the forceful rage he was feeling needed to shock her back into the moment...


Taking a long haul of oxygen into his lungs, he boomed out his reply..."NO! I DO NOT FORGIVE YOU!!!" 


He released her hands and pushed her harder into the wall...


Moving with quick attacks, he hoisted her body high...


In an instant, she began to fight against him, struggling to get free of his hold, but he didn't budge an inch...


"You DARE to call me SIR? I'm your HUSBAND!?"

Her laboured keening breaths were fanning his face as she tried to speak, but he wasn't about to allow it...


"THIS is what you want...THIS is what you need..." he growled against her mouth..."I'm your HUSBAND...and I'm not fucking asking for permission..."


Reaching between their bodies, he thrust two long fingers into her even as her body fought against him...


He curled his touch and pressed outwards onto her gspot...


Each time she tried to speak, her words turned to whimpers...


He felt her core constrict, her breathing get faster...


"You are going to come until I say it's enough...I'm going to RIP these orgasms out of you whether you want me to or not!"


She collapsed, her body slumping in his strong arms, her regret and shame visible on her face, her sorrow pouring out in body racking sobs...

Holding her tightly, her eyes shimmered with tears, tearing at his own heart and soul...


There was no fight left inside her as he captured her gaze, his fingers exerting extreme pressure inside her slick sex...


"Khushi..." he waited and she blinked, her mind too tired to resist him as her body reacted to his touches..."Khushi...Listen carefully...I refuse to forgive someone who is INNOCENT..."


More tears ran out...


"For every time you ask me to forgive you, I will remind you of your innocence...You, MY WIFE, are the reason I live...Not for my title...not for my parents...not for war...not for ANYTHING...I live for YOU..."


Her breath started to quicken and he snarled...


With her womb beginning to contract, he could feel that she was primed for a fatal climax...


But he wasn't about to let any energy to build yet, because he was going to melt the ice around her heart...and he withdrew his fingers...


"...n...no...n...no...pl...please..."


His arousal doubled as his erection was now suffering with need..."Not yet...you will listen...You can tell me to leave, but I will ALWAYS refuse...You can tell me you need to be alone, but I will ALWAYS deny you that...You can call me 'Sir'...but I will remind you once more that you merely need to say the word and I will fire every person who works for me and expel them from this castle for the rest of their lives...You ask for an execution, and it is DONE... You ask for ANYTHING and it is YOURS...Because the threat to throw you out THEN was a goddamn lie!!! I was NEVER going to let you go, whether YOU wanted to leave of not! You were born to be mine! And ONLY mine!"

He turned his words into actions, sliding his hands over her breasts, drawing out a hungry groan from his throat...


Holding her breasts reverently, he smoothed his thumb over her nipples, "So beautiful..."


She began to squirm against the wall, her body desperate for more...


The tender admiration of her was tearing past her defences...


Arnav brushed his lips over hers in a tentative kiss, letting his tongue slip over hers as a rush of heat flooded their joined bodies...


Khushi could feel the muscles of his chest ripple...


When he pulled back, he ran his tongue down her neck and along her scar, his breath hot and moving to her ear..."YOU command ME...You possess more power over me than ANYONE! Like HELL you'll be thrown out! I'll kill ANYONE who tries! I'll kill anyone who even ATTEMPTS it!..."


Her deep breath was cut short when he slid two fingers back inside her, testing her walls, and finding her leaking slick, drenching her thighs...


She whimpered and hissed...


Arnav could feel how swollen and tender she was, not yet recovered from the pounding passion he had been giving her...


"Whether you're prepared or not, what is about to happen...IS GOING TO FUCKING HAPPEN..."


Her eyes popped open and she shook her head, a weak protest to what her body was already begging for...


This was going  to be urgent... 


Kissing her tenderly before the insanity was unleashed, he breathed over her mouth..."I love you...I'm IN love with you...and again...'love' is a fucking insult for what I feel for you...and I'm going to prove to you once more, just how much I am your HUSBAND...It's time to wake up again!"


Slowly withdrawing his hand, he hitched one of her legs on his hips, quickly grabing the other as his cock was now pointed at her core...


His eyes were slits, his upper lip lifted in a snarl of arousal as he slid inside her body, his eyes holding hers captive...

She felt scared...


And yet excitement thrummed through her blood...


His expression was feral because his love was wild and insane...


Khushi saw the warrior in him...


His shoulders were broad and carved with muscles, angling down along thick arms that held her immobile...


There was no way to discount his fierceness for once second.


He looked ready to fight and conquer her.


And she knew her warrior was murderous, capable of killing, and WILLING to do whatever it took to keep their lives safe...


Her body was supported by his infinite strength, with her arms around his neck, the hard wall at her back...


Held suspended on his long and thick arousal, she was now losing focus, her body writhing and wishing and begging him to move...


"...Please...pl...ple...please...move...move in...inside...me...please..."


He growled..."QUIET. You're at MY mercy...Khushi..."


But Khushi's senses now wanted him so badly that she tensed up, her sex clenching around him...


Tears were now spilling out, "Pl...please..."


He shook his head..."Say my name..." 


"Pl...please..." the stream of tears now flowed down her neck and over her breasts...


"...say... my... name..." he demanded again while holding on tightly, letting his immense girth burn her stretching sex...


"Ar...Arnav..."


Grasping her shoulders, he pulled out and wrenched her back down onto his phallus...deep and fast.



She gasped and winced from shock and a pinch of pain...and he growled with passionate approval...

Khushi rocked her hips, the only small movement she could make..


"Look at me! Who is inside you...?"


Her unfocused gaze was on his as she spoke..."You..."


Gripping her hips, he pushed her down harder, her mouth opening, the passionate pain on her face now torturing him...


"And WHO am I!?"


Her keening soft sobs were undoing him...


"My...my husband...my Arnav..."


His dark eyes burned...


Slowly, achingly, he pulled back, and plunged in to the hilt...


They both moaned at the complete intimate contact...


She was now stuffed full of his phallus, impaled on his body, and yet yearning for more...never enough.


"Please...Arnav...don't let me back away...I'm scared...I'm more scared than I've ever been...I can't lose you...I CAN'T LOSE YOU!"


With a pained groan, the beast broke free...


He shoved her harder against the wall and rammed inside her.


Her body was held still, pinned by his, her jaw dropping on a silent unending cry of painful pleasure...


His flesh moved inside her, invading her, hurting her in the most pleasureable way, and he heard her voice grow bolder...


"M...more...more...Don't stop...PLEASE...!!!"


The emptiness that kept resurfacing from her fears and nightmares was fading away...


And all from this desire...


From this obsession...


From this domination...


It was consuming them both.


Tendrils of ecstasy threaded through the roughess, teasing her orgasm, drawing it out until she wept with needing it...


"Arnav...Arnav..."


His name was now a chant, and his soul heard it...


Spearing her core, his breath hissed through his teeth as he could feel her contractions...

Thrusts were fast...hard...the room filling with the loud slaps of her skin against his, of her cries becoming part of him...

His penetrations were brutal and relentless, and her dripping sex was clenching around him, squeezing as she could no longer control her body's reactions.


"Let go...I have you...Let go..."he whispered, and she couldn't hold it together anymore...


She broke apart...


Fell into pieces, awash in a sea of mind shattering senses...just bliss...


"Fuck...beautiful...so beautiful..."


He wedged himself deep inside her, bucking his hips against her, hitting the flood that was pouring out of her...


As her body shook and tremored, she tried to speak..."I...I love you...Arnav...I love...you...I...I..."


Rearing back, he slammed inside her before her orgasm finished...


He thrust inside again and again, not letting her relax or adjust to his enduring fullness, forcing her muscles to open up to him once more...


Harder and deeper until she clenched around him again, her orgasm dripping over him and down her legs...


Her body was contracting so tight, begging for a reprieve, but he wasn't about to allow that...


Grasping her hair with one hand, he pushed his other free hand between their bodies and found her clitoris, drowning the pulsing bud with her juices, circling torturously slow...


Sobbing in his embrace, her hands damp with her own desire, clinging to his neck, his shoulders, his hair, whatever she could reach...which wasn't much as his body controlled their rhythm...


He wanted to give her gentleness, and he would, but right now, there was NONE LEFT.


The pounding, the circling, and the endless friction didn't let up...


His mouth attached to hers, sucking, brushing, tasting deeply, leaving her lips puffy and red...


He wanted his mark on every part of her, so she knew she was his, so that she may never doubt it...


When he pulled back, she was murmuring with aroused madness...


"Shhhh...shhh...Khushi I love you..." he groaned against her forehead...


Still holding her steady, with his hand tangled in her hair, his fingers still circling her clitoris in time with the pulse of her core around his erection, he commanded..."Come."


Her womb was already in a constant state of orgasm, and she recoiled..."I...I ca...can't..."


Not allowing her ANY control, he roared..."DO IT NOW!"


He hammered inside her, his fingers pinching her hard erect bud and she came with a hoarse scream...


Her channel squeezed him tight, constricting his penetrations, but he was unwilling to ease off...


His own body almost climaxed but he clenched his teeth...


"AGAIN!" he demanded...


Heaving in air, she mewled..."No more...No...I...I can't...I really can't..."


He could feel her inner muscles still rippling around him, her last climax hardly faded...


Moving his hand away from her clitoris, he spun and dropped their joined bodies to the bed, his hands now framing her face as he penetrated her long and deep, keeping her inner core spasming, "I want to feel you come again...I want that sweet core, that belongs to me, to contract around me until I can't hold back anymore...I want to feel your fluid flood over my cock...do it...I'm NOT asking...I'm ORDERING YOU!


Khushi might have cried out his name, but the howling sound she screamed muffled in his ears as her body obeyed instantly what he had ordered...


She shook maniacally beneath him while her sex tightened painfully around his phallus...


And his wife threw his control over the edge...


His vision went white, his body rigid.


Arnav froze on a choked cry as he climaxed in a moment of blinding ecstasy and wild need, and the knowledge that he would never survive without her by his side...


He shut his eyes tightly and placed hot, open mouthed kisses on every part of her skin he could find while his body shuddered, pouring his seed into her...


"I'm sorry Khushi...I'm sorry..." he panted...


"No..." her voice was raw..."No...don't be...please..."


But she didn't understand his apology...


"You don't understand my love...I'm sorry because...God help you...the obsession I have for you just tripled...I will NEVER back away...I will NEVER let you go...I will consume you! Until there is nothing left! I will make you question my sanity, but NEVER question my love for you..."


The twitch of his cock within the swollen tissue of her sex, and his aggressive powerful declaration purged another rush of liquid from within her and she screamed out a stuttered cry, tightening around him again, wrenching another howl of pride and possession from his chest...


"Yes my wife...your body, your mind, your heart...IS MINE!"


He groaned against her skin, breathing her in while he ground her body down against his pulsing erection...


Helplessly, her hands clenched in his hair...


Even though his body was in the throes of climax, his arms held her tirelessly close...


"With me...I've got you my love..."


He was driven to possess her, hold her as though she might slip away if she weren't clenched tightly enough...


And he had managed to bind her to him in a way that neither of them could ever break loose... 


Her contracting channel was still tightening around his flesh, her hips spasming, rocking gently, wringing the final spurts of semen from his length...


Holding her in the aftermath, their sensitised flesh pulsing against the other, his breath was hot on her face as he spoke..."You...you have saved my life Khushi...without you, my heart would have shrivelled...I KNOW this...You have saved me..."


She frowned slightly, her voice still raspy and eyes unfocused..."Arnav...How can you think I'm the one who saved you...when you're the one who has healed me, my heart...over and over...you've put me back together with each touch...with each invasion of my body that you force...my every reaction, every climax, every smile, even every fear, is all born from my intense love FOR YOU...YOU have saved ME!"


Exhaustion was now taking over their minds and bodies...


Arnav curled her into his body and drew the blanket over..."Khushi...You rule me...I may have saved you, but you OWN me...sleep my princess...and don't ever dare ask if I'm leaving, because the answer is NEVER...I'm here my love...my eternal love..."



.........




"They're what!?"


The older man nodded, "The prince killed Evan, and Lavanaya is dying a slow painful death...if she survives the night, it will be a miracle..."


The middle aged woman was turning red with rage..."If he thinks he can take her, then I will take what is most precious to him..."

  4. Wonderful update. It was written brilliantly. you made me cry for this part of the story. Good he killed Evan and injured Lavanya who hurted his wife. I thought Part 1 was painful to see khushi hurt but Part 2 was worse. it was real nightmare to see them both hurt and in agony. Hope so atleast in part 3 they will be safe. So Lavanya was the main culprit for hurting khushi and planned her revenge against The Prince Arnav. But how did she think she can get away after hurting the princess. Doesn't she know he will hunt and destroy every person who dare to hurt his wife.

    And the chasing is still not over and wonder who is the person who's coming to take revenge. Is it Lav's mom?

    But whoever the person will dare to come close to khushi won't return alive coz this time arnav will be well prepared to avenge for his khushi and destroy them completely.

    Thank you once again for the wonderful stories you update and have us hooked in it. We really enjoy reading your stories and i love to see arnav always protective and possessive of khusi in every story of yours.

    Shalomgrace.
