“Mr. Watson, they are saying they couldn’t come-“
“I don’t want to hear what they’re saying. Follow my order and do as I say” I snapped at my new PA.
“Y-Yes Sir” she stammered. I guess she’s scared of me. She better be! I hate those people who try to intrude in my personal matter unless I want them to. That’s the reason I fired my old PA. She was more interested to know about me rather than work. I watched Karolia walking slowly towards the car, clutching my jacket tightly around her.
SUDDENLY IT HAPPENED.
My car exploded in a loud bang, making me drop my phone from my hand and cover my head with my hands. The fire erupted into the clear night sky as my Lamborghini burned. I heard the sound of a head pounding against the nearest wall, making my heart to stop for a second. I widened my eyes and turned around to see Karolia bleeding profusely on the wall.
“Shit” I cursed loudly and ran towards her before dropping to my knees next to her. I took her head and carefully placed on my lap. I could feel the warm wetness flowing through my hands. This can’t be happening! Her eyes fluttered closed as she started losing her conscious.
“No No No, don’t sleep. Keep your eyes open. Look at me” I said shaking her.
“L-Loga-an” She tried to keep her eyes open for me, but I can see it’s hurting her.
“W-What hap-p- ” Her eyes slowly closed, a moan of pain leaving her lips before she went motionless.
“Baby, please! Open your eyes, please, please” I begged, slapping her cheeks hard. I now noticed that people started crowding around us.
“Hey, I’ve called an ambulance,” a male voice said from behind. I nodded but didn’t look back. I can’t keep my eyes off of Lia. I watched her face turning paler and paler, her lips turning white.
I can hear the sirens coming. From a distance, I saw my car which was burning. Whoever did this, I’ll find and kill them mercilessly.
The police van and ambulance arrived soon. I turned my head to the right and saw police officers and people in paramedic uniforms making their way towards us with the gurney.
“What happened?” one of the paramedics asked me as they neared me. I stood up picking Lia up in my arms and placed her on the gurney.
“We were coming from the restaurant. Then I got a call and asked her to get in the car. As she was just a few feet away from the car, it exploded. She went flying backward and her head hit pretty hard on the wall” I said, recapping the events, trying to keep my face as calm as possible.
“Will she be all right?” I asked them.
“She’ll be, sir” she smiled at me, reassuringly. They started wheeling her where the ambulance is. I tried to go with her, but the police stopped me.
“Mr. Watson, I’m sorry. We need to ask you a few questions”
“Not now. I need to go with her. She needs me” I said, running my hand through my hair frustrated.
“I’m afraid you can’t go now, sir. She’ll be safe. Try to cooperate with us” he said sternly as I clenched my fist.
“What makes you think I’m going to listen to you,” I growled and tried to walk away again, but he caught my arm. The next thing I knew is I punched him right on his nose.
Have you ever experienced the feeling of someone hitting your head with thousands of hammer?
Right now I’m experiencing that feeling and let me tell you, it’s a walk on a lump of burning coal and glasses on a barefoot. I moaned in pain and clutched my left ear as the sound of hammering increased. I slowly opened my eyes to bright white light, blinding me. I closed my eyes again and blinked a few times. I opened them again and looked around. I was in an unfamiliar white room. The wall beside me was covered in a long horizontal blind over my head. There was an annoying beeping sound somewhere close by and my hands were all twisted up with tubes. I guess I didn’t die.
“She’s awake,” a familiar voice said. I slowly turned my head slightly to the right and saw Scarlet and Patrick, their face filled with relief.
“H-Hey guys,” I said, my voice hoarse and weak.
“Thank God you finally decided to get up. Sitting in this hard sofa wasn’t comfortable” Patrick said, stretching his arms above his head. But soon he groaned in pain as Scarlet elbowed him on his ribs. I chuckled under my breath. I tried to prop myself up with my arms, but as I felt the pain in my head again, I gently fell back down hissing in pain.
“You okay?” Patrick asked worriedly.
“Yeah,” I groaned. Scarlet took my hands in hers and squeezed it tightly.
“I was so scared. I thought you won’t – you won’t be” she said, sobbing.
“Shh… I’m fine” She gave me a weak smile and leaned forward to kiss my cheek.
“If you ever die, I’ll come to your grave and kill you again for leaving me,” she said making me chuckle.
“Sure miss,” I said.
“What happened? How did the car explode all of a sudden?” I asked looking at Patrick.
“Someone fixed a bomb in the car. An automatic time bomb” he said, confusing me.
“Automatic time bomb?” I asked.
“Yes. It’s a bomb which will start functioning as soon as the engine is started. Actually, they were trying to kill Logan.”
“But we didn’t even start the car,” I asked, confused.
“The bomb started functioning from the mansion itself. I guess a time of 1 or 2 hours was set up. Today Logan had some trip to Boston for some business matter, but now he canceled it. So anyway, this bomb was set up by the knowledge of one of his staff member. Bastard”
“Did you find them?”
“No, police are still investigating,” he said. I looked around the room, searching for a familiar face.
“Are you looking for Logan?” Scarlet asked.
“Yeah, where is he?”
“He’s in prison,” Patrick said making me freeze.
“What? How? But why?” I asked shocked.
“He punched a police officer. They didn’t allow him to come with you. So he got angry and broke a nose of a police officer” he said, shaking his head.
“But don’t worry. He’ll be here soon. I’ve sent his lawyer” Patrick said. I nodded my head but immediately regretted as I felt a sharp pain on my head. Deep breathe! There was a faint crack of the door opening. We turned around to see Tyler rushing in.
“Karrie, how are you?” he asked, worriedly.
“I’m fine. Just tired”.
“You didn’t have to come. I’m all right” I said as he frowned.
“Of course I have to. You’re my best friend” he said as I smiled.
“Yeah right”. Then a nurse came bustling in then to check all my tubes and wires.
“How are you feeling, honey?” she asked me, giving a sweet smile.
“Does it hurts?” she asked, referring to my bandaged head.
“Yes,” I groaned.
“Hmm, I think it’s time for more pain meds sweetheart,” she said.
“No, I’m fine. I don’t want to go back to sleep” I mumbled.
“Karrie, you need to rest. Listen to the nurse.” Scarlet said sternly, but I just shook my head.
“No. I want to talk with you guys” I pouted making Patrick and Tyler smile.
“We’ve got a lot of time to talk. But now what you need is rest.” Patrick said and I sighed in defeat.
“Fine”. The nurse smiled and she injected the medicine into my tube.
“You’ll feel better now,” she said.
“Thanks” I mumbled. It didn’t take long. I could feel the drowsiness trickling through my bloodstream almost immediately. I closed my eyes and drifted into a night of sleep.
I opened my eyes to something warm and smooth touching my face. It trailed from left eye to my neck, sending tingles on the skin where it touched. Logan’s hand.
“L-Logan” My lips cracked at my attempt and my throat burned due to lack of water.
“Can you help me to sit?” He nodded his head and wrapped his arm around my shoulders and slowly lifted me in a sitting position while with his other hand, he placed a pillow behind my head.
“How are you feeling now?” he asked softly, sitting beside me.
“I feel much better” I smiled as I noticed the intensity of the pain from earlier reduced. He handed me a glass of water and I gulped it down in one go.
“What’s the time,” I asked, handing the glass back to him.
“It’s now 12.30 pm.” He said, looking at his watch.
“When did you come?”
“Three hours back,” he said.
“Enjoyed your jail trip?” I asked him sarcastically.
“Very much” he smirked making me roll my eyes. Then suddenly his face turned all serious. He stared in my eyes, different emotions flowing through his eyes. I frowned.
“I know I look bad. But can you stop staring? It’s getting uncomfortable” I said, but he didn’t take his eyes off me. Seriously?
“When I saw you lying on the ground unconscious with blood all around you, it took everything, everything to control myself.” He said.
“No, let me finish. If you would’ve walked a bit faster, I won’t ever see you alive. That’ll be something I won’t be able to handle. It all happened because of me. I shouldn’t have taken you out to eat.” He said quietly closing his eyes.
“Logan, look at me,” I said and he opened his eyes.
“I’m fine. Nothing happened to me. It’s not your fault. It’s none of our faults. It’s fate. Besides we should be thankful. What would have happened if we were inside the car?” I asked, shuddering at that thought.
“Yeah, you’re right” he mumbled.
“Did you find who put the bomb in the car?”
“No. But I have my doubt on two people” he said.
“Who are they?”
“I’ll find it. But you don’t need to strain yourself thinking too much about it. I’ll handle this case” he said in a firm tone and I sighed in defeat.
“Fine, detective” I mumbled, pouting. He chuckled softly. His eyes grew darker as he stared at my pouting lips. He rubbed my bottom lip with his thumb as I stared at him, frozen. Tingles erupted in my stomach at his touch.
“May I kiss you?” He asked, his eyes never leaving my lips and his voice turning husky. I parted my lips in shock.
“Uh- No?” I said, more like a question. He removed his electric blue eyes from my lips and locked with my brown eyes.
“Is there any reason for No?” He asked huskily, a small smirk forming on his lips.
“Uh- hmm, I’m allergic to kissing” I blabbered. He raised his brow in amusement and I mentally facepalmed. Seriously Karolia! Allergic!
“Yeah, it’s true. My lips will be swollen for a week if someone kissed me” I lied, laughing nervously. God, save me from this!
“Well, let’s try if you’re allergic to my lips,” he said, leaning forward.
“That would be a bad idea -” I was cut off when I felt his lips crashing on mine. I froze and it felt like the world around us stopped.
OH MY GOD. LOGAN WATSON IS KISSING ME.
I sat there shocked and stunned. I didn’t respond for a minute. But when I came to know what’s going on, I relaxed and kissed him back. Delicious tingles ran through me and I close my eyes, relishing in our amazing kiss. The kiss was rough at the same time gentle. Our lips moved in sync as he held me close, cupping my face in his hands while my hands were clutched around the bed sheet. He pulled back and pressed his forehead to mine, breathing heavily.
“So I guess my lips aren’t allergic to you,” he said and I blushed furiously. He pecked my lips again and again and again.
“I’ll go get the doctor before I lose my control” He mumbled against my lips and left the room like a lightning. As soon as he left, I touched my lips from where he had kissed and could feel tingles of his lips on mine. So this is how a real kiss feels like huh!
“I see you’re awake, Miss Kingston.” a man walked through the door with a stethoscope around his neck.
“Yes,” I smiled.
“I’m Graham,” he said. Graham checked my vitals, while Logan was standing beside him, staring at me. Doctor asked me a few questions like my full name, age, height, etcetera and I answered all of them.
“Well, she’s not suffering from any concussion-like we anticipated. So she is free to go now. But make sure she takes rest for few days. She got hit on her head, so be careful” Graham said and Logan nodded. I smiled happily and got out of the bed quickly.
“Why so rush princess?” Logan asked amused.
“I want to get out of here as soon as possible,” I said. Then I remembered the doctor was standing here. I smiled sheepishly, my face instantly flushing.
“Sorry,” I said. The doctor smiled at me kindly and left the room after handing me my discharged paper.
“Come let’s go,” I said, happily.
“Sure,” he said. I started walking, but just as I passed Logan, he caught my arm and turned me around. Suddenly he picked me up in his arms in a bridal style making me squeal.
“Logan put me down. What are you doing?” I said. But he ignored me and walked out of the room.
“You know I can walk” I mumbled, as I felt everyone’s eyes on us.
“I know,” he said.
“Logan, please put me down. People are staring!” I said, uncomfortably.
