10,DAYS WITH BELLA
____________________ day 2b, ( cold hearted)
Bella didn’t come down after she went to the room that morning after what happened, she stayed inside knights bedroom and cried all day , when she ealized Knight wasn’t home she decided to go take a quick bath and maybe watch some T.V , after freshing up she wore another dress because Knight already tore the first one, she left her long Weaver hair down reaching her waist , once she opened the door grace the house help was about to knock she smiled at Bella who returned it.
” Am sorry ms for disturbing, but sir asked me to
give you this ” grace said handing Bella a nylon
she looked into it and it was a dress.
” What is it for? She asked .
” I don’t know ms but I was asked to give it to
you ” she said and Bella nodded .
” Also ms, you should get down for lunch , sir
won’t be at home early so he asked you eat your
lunch ” grace said.
” Okay , please just call me Isabella or Bella okay
” she told grace .
” Am sorry but I can’t , Mr Houston gave us strict
orders to call you by ur surname or ma’am or ms
, if am caught Calling you your name I will loss
my job ” grace said and Bella frowned.
” I will go now ms, you should come down ” she
said and Bella nodded, grace turned and left .
Bella went back inside and dropped the nylon on
the bed, but why is Knight acting strange,
something doesn’t seem okay about him, his very
handsome and looks good at the outside but
inside lay a cold hearted man , and why would
he instruct his workers to respect her as well
and call her ma’am or ms Kinston? Bella couldn’t
help but wonder .
Bella later went down to eat as she was served
a fried chicken lasagna, and homemade tomato
sauce, the food is so delicious and she couldn’t
help but moan , grace brought her juice and
poured it in the glass for her, Bella wasn’t used
to people serving her.
” Umm grace … please, could you leave it I’d do
it myself” Bella said grace smiled .
“, You don’t need to worry ms, am only doing my
job ” she said and Bella nodded .
But yet her mind wasn’t at rest , why would
Knight tell his workers to treat her with respect?
” Umm, ain’t you hungry you should seat and eat
with me ” Bella said grace smiled again.
” As much as I would love to ma’am I can’t , Mr
Houston will get mad at me “, she said, Bella
couldn’t help but feel so angry at Knight, why is
the man so annoying? And heartless treating
people like slaves , Bella didn’t like it and once
his back she will confront him.
” Ms, Mr Houston had asked me to show you to
the library if you want to have a private time ”
grace said to Bella who smiled .
” That will be very nice , I love reading” Bella
said got up to pick the plates but grace hurried
to do it , Bella felt bad .
” I wanted to do it” Bella said .
“Please ms if you really care and pity me, just let
me do this myself”, grace said and Bella nodded,
she watched as grace left to the kitchen and
” Please ms this way” she said and Bella
followed her, they reached a door and grace
opened it , they both walked in.
” Wow!! This library is so beautiful” she said
going to touch the books .
Grace smiled .
” Anyone you love you could pick , Mr Houston
won’t mind , but am really surprised he asked us
to bring you here to have privacy, he doesn’t let
anyone in here ” grace said and Bella frowned
going back to her .
“, But why, don’t you love to read ? Bella asked.
” I do, but we know our limits” grace said .
” Umm, when we were coming here there was a
door locked at the side can I take a look ? Bella
asked and grace eyes widen.
“, No, no, no, no ms, Mr Houston doesn’t let any
single soul in that room ,infact he didn’t ask me
to take you there , and besides it’s locked “,
grace said making Bella scared, what could
Knight be hiding from the world , does the room
got Anything to do with his cold heart ? She
“, Can I ask a question? Bella asked.
,” Yes ms” grace replied.
” Does Knight has family? She asked and grace
” Grace please tell me ” Bella begged.
” Am sorry ms, but you shouldn’t ask me that ,
Mr Houston is In the best position to answer that
” grace said .
” But …..okay, never mind am sorry for asking”,
Grace didn’t say anything.
Bella read for so many hours and night was
already drawing nearer and nearer, Knight hasn’t
returned yet, so she went to the bedroom got
into her teddy bear night gown and lay on the
Not quite long Knight returned and opened the
bedroom door as he saw Bella sleeping on the
bed, he losses his tie and took off his suit jacket
, pulled his shoe and went into the bathroom
after showering, he came back to the bedroom
wearing short but shirtless, he stare at Bella who
was sleeping soundly on the bed , he went closer
to her and touched her gently on her hair .
Bella felt someone touching her, so she gently
opened her eyes and she came face to face
looking at knights eyes , she quickly sprang up
and moved far away from him.
Knight didn’t understand why she did that , but
he saw the fear in her eyes .
” Ella what’s wrong, why did you move away like
that ? He asked trying not to be upset , Bella
took in a deep breath.
” Am sorry , I didn’t know it was you ” she lied
Knight raised an eyebrow, he knew she was
” Get back to bed “, he said and got up to go out
but Bella stopped him.
” Knight what happened to you ?, Why do you get
angry easily? Bella asked before she could stop
herself, Knight turned to look at her .
” What do you mean by that ? He asked.
” Am not blind, I see how you behave and it’s not
normal, today I asked grace if I could check the
green door room , but ….
” You did what ?? Knight yelled his eyes turned
red, Bella got scared and moved back .
” U.mm…mm..umm….but I didn’t she explained”
Bella quickly said as Knights eyes became so
red , she knew he was trying his best to hold his
But why was he so angry .
” You can go to any other place In this mansion,
but don’t you ever go close to that room do you
get it ? He yelled, and she quickly nodded out of
Knights eyes soften, he didn’t mean to scare her
” Am sorry , I didn’t mean to scare you is just
that I don’t like anyone around there ” he said .
For the first time since Bella had set her eyes on
knight, she saw sadness in his eyes , right this
moment she couldn’t hate him anymore, it seems
something is wrong somewhere, all she felt for
him now is trying to know why his so cold
Knight moved ontop of the bed , Bella didn’t
move back , he pulled her to him and her heart
beat widely against her chest , Knight only
kissed her and pulled her on the bed and got
onto of her .
But this time around she wasn’t angry at him
that he wants sex , all that was in her mind was
Who made Knight this cold hearted?
