taking a deep breath Althea continued speaking she decided to be honest
" I'm very grateful for all your help but I need to ask this. Lord Kaname do you have any feelings for me? " she asked
the Lord was quite shocked with her question he didn't expect her to say that. the was no emotions in her eyes she was looking straight in his eyes waiting for his answer
" and what if I said that I do, " the Lord asked her back
" then I will say that I'm sorry my Lord. I don't have any feelings towards you not now nor in the future " she said these words without regard to who she is saying it
the Lord was very impressed with her bravery. If she was someone else she would be turned into dust by now. Is she not afraid of him the Lord wandered
standing up from his place the Lord walked to the window looking outside he spoke
" my feelings are something that belongs to my Althea " he paused turning around to look at her
she listening carefully to him. the Lord smiled at her then continued
" I can only say this to you I promise you that cause any discomfort. so you can rest assured that I will not bother you "
there was a hint of sadness in the Lord's voice Althea noticed but she chose to ignore it it's for the best she thought.
" then if there's anything else I will take my leave, " Althea said standing up from her place
" No. good night Althea " the Lord replied
she wished him good night then she left. Althea was relieved that she clarified everything. she was very shocked when answered her but he wasn't accurate in his words but she understood the hidden meaning in his words. she chose to ignore it even if he appears to be good with her but that doesn't mean that she forgot the true nature of the purebloods and their cruel ways
somehow there were feelings of uneasiness in her heart a sadness. she sat at her bed untieing her hair she massaged the back of her head she was having a bad headache suddenly. laying down on the bed her eyes laid fast very heavy she wanted to take a bath before sleeping but she was very tired today events was very tiring for her.
the next day the Lord left the mansion early in the morning. the Lord now was in a meeting with the
Senate members were discussing the vampire's society issues. after the meetings ended the Lord dismissed everyone
resting his back at the chair he massaged the space between his eyes brows. looking outside the window it was night time already. today he hadn't seen her he left the mansion very early. her words kept on repeating in his mind
I don't have any feelings towards you not now nor in the future
those words were like a knife that stabbed his heart but he can't blame her at such a young age she has been through a lot though he promised her to not bother her but that doesn't mean that he will stop protecting her even if she doesn't love him as he loves her he will never abandon her
though she seems strong and tough from the outside but from the inside she is very delicate and very fragile and her beauty can make any man fall for her but she is very reserved for her young age those are one of the things that the Lord loved about her.
the Lord may have promised that he will give her space but he will not give up on trying to win her heart.
