Aren can sense the anger oozing from her. Though her body likes it, she is offended by the kiss. He wonders what he should do. If he takes her to the Mirins, they will brainwash her right away. God knows what they do inside their homes. The Renasir might become the one who controls the chosen one instead. She has a strong mind. Though he will like her to remain the way she is, he has to be calculative.
"Do you love that man?" He asks her suddenly. Her heart skips a beat. So, she does. There are two big hindrances toward his goal. The Mirins and That man. He touches her soft hair. The potion will wear off soon. If she decides to go back to that man, can he stop her? He can keep her imprisoned until she agrees to become his. He can kill that man, but she might come to hate him. She's his Renasir. Then, she could choose to go with Mirins. What should he do to make her choose him?
How to make a woman choose him?
'Love.' His mother told him once, 'If love fails, lust will do. If lust doesn't work, the pain will do. If the pain doesn't work, death will do.'
"Do you want to go back to that man?"
If she says no, he won't take the next step.
The sounds of her heartbeat answer him. He sighs and goes to the cabinet. He finds the small vial. Rather than being brainwashed by the Mirins, it's better if she only has him in her mind.
The ropes are not going off. I glare at the boy in front of me. "How long are you going to keep me here?"
"Until you change your mind and make an oath to be with me." He places the knight in the black square. "You are a lousy chess partner."
It's been some hours since I have been abducted. The room is big, but it's cold. I tried screaming, but no one came. I don't know if there is anyone in the building. The chosen one is a psychopath.
"What do you want from me?" I ask him. "I get it that I am the Renasir. But, why are you keeping me here?"
"I haven't decided what to do with you." He sighs. "If I take you to the higher realm, the Mirins will brainwash you. If I let you go, you will go back to that man. Both choices are unacceptable to me. What do I do to make you fall in love with me?"
What the...? Is this guy crazy? "Look, Boy, I won't fall in love with you. I get it that you need me to fulfill the prophecy. But, abducting the person is not a solution. I won't let the Mirins brainwash me. Let me go. My brother will be worried."
"I like you though." He presses the rook between his finger. It breaks in half. "I dislike the idea that you already have someone else in your heart. It's unfair."
Psychopath. Complete psychopath. He's young, but he is scaring me. "If I like you back, you will let me go?"
He takes a glance at me. "You don't like me though. You strongly dislike me because I abducted you. Your body reacts to my kiss, but your heart belongs to that man. That's not what I want. If it goes on like this, I have to use the second method to make you attach to me."
"The second method?" My intuition tells me that it's nothing good. I look at the rope. I wonder what kind of magic he is using. I decide to play a different game. "Aren, we are already so close. Don't do anything drastic."
His face changes when I call his name. He puts away the chessboard. "I have made a decision."
"I don't have the time to make you fall for me." He brings out a vial. He bites his finger and drops his blood into the vial. "This is my mother's creation. I don't want to use it on you, but I don't have any choice. The Mirins will find us in two days. It seems like you won't change your mind. Your heart beats for that man. I can't have any weakness when it comes to achieving my goal."
I struggle again. The freaky ropes become tight on my wrists and ankles. They are listening to his command. I move away from him. I am not drinking that. I try to summon ehr in my body again. My channels have been blocked by him. He grabs my back and turns me around to face him.
"I am sorry for doing this." He grips my jaw. He pours the liquid in my mouth. "I have to find that harbinger. She owes me a debt."
The liquid burns my throat. He lets go of my jaw. "It's not poison. I know that Mirins cannot be affected by poisons. It's a love potion. It is not the ordinary one that you find at the market. My mother created this before she died. From now on, your body will want me. You will only want to see me. You will not be able to stay away from me. You will not go against me."
My body is burning hot. I feel like my blood is boiling. The fire is rushing through my veins. I twist and turn on the bed. I scream in pain.
"Do you feel like burning? That's the holy fire in your blood." He unbuttons his shirt. "Your body will torture you like this unless I satisfy it."
"Don't." I clench my fists. "You are the chosen one. This isn't right."
"I need to assure your loyalty." He puts his finger on my clothes and burns them away. "You are still fighting it? It will hurt you more if you keep fighting it."
I won't beg this person. He's insane. "You will regret doing this to me."
"I am already regretting it." He parts my legs wide. "I will bear the weight of this regret."
