Invisible Chapter 22

Chapter 22:

There were many times that I'd seen the King mad, but nothing compared to what he looked like now. There was a red fire in his eyes, and it seemed like he was going to shoot them through anyone at any moment now. I was actually more scared than before.
But not from him.
My fear was that how bad his reaction could be, and no matter what, the Queen's reaction towards me would be even harsher than his towards her, there wasn't even a way to compare it.
But he was a king, he never acted on his anger, and I could see him doing it now as he paced the room back and forth while I sat on the edge of the bed and watched him.
He was taking deep breaths and letting go of them, and when he was a bit calmer, he came to me and gently took my hand, making me stand up in front of him.
"I'm going to take your clothes off." He warned right before he did what he said he was going to do, and confusion consumed me as I stood naked in front of him. Did he want to bed me now?
What he did was not bed me, he barely even touched me and it was only to rub the powder off of my bruises, the ones on my chest and the ones on my back. He was too mad by the time he saw each and every bruise, even madder than before, but he didn't say anything.
Lastly he spoke," I can't imagine why she would do all of this to you, just because you were naked?" he sounded shocked and was finding a hard time understanding, so I tried to explain.
"She thought I was trying to seduce you, My Lord." Which I still had no idea if it was true or not, I only knew I had wanted to please him.
"Is that why she made you wear the mask? Because until this day, I still can't get it!" he asked, and I just looked down, I had no answer for that.
His hands moved to the back of my head, and I felt him as he tried to take off my mask, I panicked and moved away, shrugging my head far from his reach.
"Please, no, no. Don't take it off, please. She'll have me killed if I do," I begged, my tears streaming down my face and under the mask.
He must have taken pity on me because the next thing I knew he took me in his arms, shushing me as he smoothed my hair, soothing me. It didn't take long to calm down in his arms.
"No one will ever lay a finger on you as long as I live, Beautiful Eyes." He promised. "I swear to you." And then his hand that was over my hair untied the tie of my mask, making it drop to the floor.
His eyes caught mine and I saw him studying my face, I blushed under his gaze and looked down, but his index finger under my chin forced me gently to look up at him again, "You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen in my life, Beautiful Eyes. No wonder she didn't want me to see you."
Tears brightened my eyes at the sweetness of his words. I couldn't believe he was saying them to me, but my King wasn't a liar, and if he said something, he meant it.
Out of nowhere, I felt his lips pressed onto my own as he kissed me in the most passionate way a man could kiss a woman. His tongue darting out to taste me and his lips sucking my lower one into his mouth was the most amazing sensation in the world, his hand tightening on my weak body with a gentleness and care that I had never been held with before in my whole life.
And when he pulled away, he shocked me with his words, "I have to go to talk to my wife."
AN – Thank you all for your 'Get Well Soon' wishes, you're the best. I'm still pretty under the weather and just passed it to two of my daughters. Ugh!
Again, sorry for the delay, I promise I'm trying my best.
Love you all.
