I yawned as I rose up my head and also
opened my eyes. I felt a really stinging pain in
my neck. I cringed as I rubbed my neck. I
looked around and realised I was still in his
“Well done Caden. ” I whispered to myself as I
noticed I had kept my word on staying here. I
looked up and saw Blayze standing about
some meters away in front of me going
through a book he picked up from the shelf. I
noticed that he was really engrossed in it. I
managed to get up even as I felt the cramp in
my legs and the cringing pain in my neck. I
kept rubbing the back of my neck as I walked
up to him. I stood beside him.
” I’m sure by now you must have changed your
mind. ” I told him with all assurance as I kept
rubbing the back of my neck. He ignored me.
Well, I’m too far in to stop now. He walked
away to another shelf. I followed him.
” You can really make this easy Blayze by just
saying the words, ‘release her building’. That’s
really all you have to say. ” I told him as I now
stood in front of him. He ignored me again and
walked up to another shelf where he picked up
another book and kept the other one.
“Really Blayze you don’t want to release my
workplace? You know this can go on and go
on. I don’t mind the pain. I’ll just bite it
through just to frustrate you and so long as
you refuse to release my workplace. I will
continue to stick around you like super glue
and I know you’ll definitely not like that, right?
” I told him and immediately he shut the book
with a thud. I could finally see it, the flames,
the anger surrounding him. He slowly looked
up to me and I could have sworn I literally saw
fire. It was clear evidence that he was angry.
Most people will throw tantrums when they’re
angry but not Blayze Norman. He was the only
man that I’ve seen with so much anger in him
and yet he still manages to remain his cool.
“Are you done!?” He spoke out by literally
picking the words one after the other which
surprised me. That was definitely not the reply
I was looking forward to. He walked away
back to his table. He stood there sorting some
papers in his hands.
” Normally a person would say yes then walk
out defeated but not me…” I said as I walked
up to him.
” Not me, Caden…I might have a petite size
and look so vulnerable but I’m quite tough. I
don’t give up on anything and I will make sure
you release my workplace…why are you so
heartless anyway? Did you lose your very loved
girlfriend in some accident or is it your
parents? Did your dad never loved you or did
both your parents abandon you or maybe your
mother ran away….”
” SHUT UP!” He yelled suddenly which startled
me. My heart had almost leapt out of my
chest. I took a look at him and noticed he was
really angry. His eyes were definitely cold
filled with anger and…and something else that
I couldn’t quite put my finger on. He had
folded his fists. Did I say something wrong?
No…I must have definitely touched a hurt
“…Did your dad never loved you or did both
your parents abandon you or maybe your
mother ran away…”
” Mummy…mummy please don’t go. Mummy…”
the little boy who clenched on to his toy wept
as he stood close to the bed. His mother
ignored him and kept packing her clothes into
her box on the bed. His father stood at the door
with folded arms watching her.
” Mummy…mummy please don’t leave me. ” he
wept as he took hold of his mother’s hand.
” Blayze leave me alone! I have to go now so
be a big boy and behave.” His mum told him as
she took his little hand away from hers.
” Why are you still wasting time? Hurry up and
go to your damned lover!” His father told her
” Of course I’ll leave. I’m never going to waste a
single minute in this cursed house!” His mum
told him as she zipped up her bag and carried it
down off the bed.
” Mummy, mummy please don’t go…” the little
boy cried as he went after her.
” Come back here Blayze! ” his father ordered
him as he took hold of his arm. His mum went
on without looking back and down the stairs.
” Mummy…” he wept.
” Stop it! I said stop crying! ” his father ordered
him as he held his arm but Blayze couldn’t stop
crying. He kept crying and calling out to his
“You want to disobey me, huh!?” His father
asked his son angrily.
” Come here you little brat…” his father dragged
him along with him. He opened one of the
doors and dragged the boy into a dark room.
“This is where you’ll stay until you stop crying
and behave!” His father yelled at him before
quickly walking out and shut the door. He
locked the door with the key.
” Nobody will open this door unless I say so! ”
he ordered the servants who stood around
watching before he stormed away angrily.
“Daddy…Daddy open the door…I don’t want to
stay here. It’s scary…Daddy…” he wept as he
knocked on the door.
” SHUT UP! ” I yelled at her angrily after having
that flashback. That was a part of me that I
never ever wanted to remember again. I hated
my past and I hated my life. This has done it.
She has broken the last straw on the camels
back. I walked up to her while trying to control
my urge to hit her. If she was a man, I would
have taught him the lesson of his life.
My heart suddenly began to beat faster as if
this was my doom as he took scary steps
“Shut your mouth! I am warning you
Caden…don’t push me to the limits…. don’t
turn me into the monster that you won’t like! ”
He said angrily but calmly between his teeth.
I swallowed hard. I can’t show fear now. The
beginning of my fear is the beginning of his
domination over me.
” A monster that I won’t like!? Take a very
good look at yourself Blayze…take a look at
your life…You are already a monster…what
normal human being would do the things you
do. For more wealth and power, you married a
woman you know absolutely nothing about, you
mistreat people…what of if I was a murderer
or even worst a serial killer then what? You
don’t care about anyone’s feelings and you do
whatsoever you feel like doing…You are a
monster Blayze. ” I told him before I walked
past him and left the office.
” Oh my goodness! Oh my goodness! ” I
exclaimed as I rested on a wall with my hands
on my chest to calm my beating heart. I was
literally scared out of my wits.
” I can’t believe I just spoke to Blayze Norman
like that and he didn’t say anything…no reply,
no threats, no beating…just a blank
expression…What’s that supppse to
mean…was I too harsh in calling him a
monster but that’s how he behaves…he started
this first. All he had to do was release my
workplace…there was something definitely up
about his eyes.” I spoke to myself in a
whisper. I decided to take a look at him. I
gently opened the door and to my surprise, I
saw him sitting on the sofa with his head in
his hands. He…looked…miserable.
My heart started to beat faster than usual and
the wierd thing was that I wasn’t scared
anymore so why beat this way.
