[ Her Perfect Heartbeat 💖 ]
📜 CHAPTER SIX📜
“What was that all about back there between you and Mr. Millbrook?” Drake asked when they got to her bedroom door.
She opened the door and walked in, he followed her inside. “It was nothing,” she said, going over to the bed and sat down, lowering her head.
He went over and grabbed her arm when he saw the red mark on her wrist. “It didn’t look like nothing to me and he has left a mark on you. I should go downstairs and tell your father that he got rough with you.”
“It won’t do any good, he’s my father’s friend.”
He sat down beside her. “Tell me what you two were fighting about.”
She leaned back on her hands. “I was just informed that my dear old dad has promised Earl that I would marry him. He says I have no choice and that once we are married I am to behave and be a proper wife. I’d rather die than marry him.”
“Your father loves you, I’m sure he won’t force you to marry someone you don’t want to, especially to one who is the same age as himself. Just talk to him, let him know how you feel.”
“You don’t know him the way I do. When he sets his mind on something nothing can change it, not even me.” She rubbed her temples with her fingertips. “Would you go get me some aspirins from my bathroom cabinet?”
He gets up and goes into her bathroom, he took a look around. It was just like any other bathroom, he was expecting to see special equipment for one who was blind. What that was he wasn’t sure. He opens the cabinet and finding the pills took out two and placed the bottle back in the exact same spot he took it from. He was told several times to make sure nothing was moved around. Pouring some water into a glass took it out to her, she was now laying on the bed. “Here you go,” he said, holding it out for her to take. He felt the light touch of her fingers against his when she took the glass from him, it felt warm and lit a tiny spark inside him.
“Thank you,” she said, handing him back the glass after she washed the pills down. “I’m going to rest now, let me know when Earl has left. If he’s still here by dinner time I’ll just stay up here. Be a prince and take off my shoes for me.”
He saw the small smile that curled up on the corner of her mouth, knowing she was playing with him again. He placed his hand over the back of her foot, holding it up as he removed the shoe, then did the same to the other. He couldn’t help thinking what nice feet she had and her ankles were so tiny he could put his hand around them. “Have a good rest princess, I’ll be back later to see how you’re doing.”
“You could lay down next to me if you want to,” she said, patting the spot next to her.
“nice try but no thanks”
“It’s your loss,” she answered back, hiking her dress up a little to show off her legs. She could hear his breathing getting louder, knowing he was a tad excited. Her heart started racing when she felt him moving closer and leaning over her. But then when he pulled her dress down she threw one of the pillows at him. “Jerk,” she hissed when she heard him laughing and walking out. This one is going to be harder to break, she thought to herself.
He had to admire her determination, she was always doing things to try and entice him. He had to fight the urge not to give in. She was, after all, a beautiful and sexy woman with a killer body. Going to his room he changed into jeans and a t-shirt, he was told by his boss that he was welcome to dress casually when at the mansion. Then he decided to take a walk around the grounds. It was always a good idea to check where the security cameras were located and to get to know some of the armed guards.
He made his way down to the front gates, his gun tucked in the back of his waistband. “Hey guys, how’s it going today?” he asked, waving at them.
There were two men at the gate, one was there when Drake first came. “Mr. O’Rourke, I see you’re still here,” he said with a smirk on his face.
He laughed. “Yes, are you surprised?”
“Hell yeah, it’s been what, a week?”
“Ten days actually.”
“I give you a lot of credit son, no one else has lasted more than five days, seven tops. I’m going to let you in on a secret. Miss Templeton has a knack for sneaking out when her bodyguard goes to bed. I’d keep a close eye on her if I were you.”
“Sneak away you say, how does she do that with no sight?” He was curious about how she could get out, seeing she was blind.
“She’ll pay one of the other men or a staff member to drive her wherever she wants to go. That’s why people who work here come and go faster than you can bat an eye.”
“I’ll take my chances,” he said. He stayed talking to the man, getting the lay of the land and finding out about the other guards. He kind of liked this man called Howard, he was straight forward, getting straight to the point. Looking at his watch and seeing it was close to dinner time he left to go get Catherine.
Knocking on her door and not getting an answer he walked in, thinking that maybe she pulled one of her disappearing tricks. “Catherine,” he shouted out, beads of sweat formed on his forehead.
“You don’t have to shout, I’m right here. I was just taking a shower. Would you hand me my dress and panties please?”
He turned to find her in nothing but a towel, a short one. His eyes were glued to the top of the towel that barely covered her breasts as he reached for her dress and panties that were hanging over a nearby chair, handing them to her.
“Thank you,” she said dropping the towel and stood naked before him.
“Christ,” he swore loudly and turned around fast, but not before he had gotten a good look at all of her. His cock instantly got hard and he was glad she couldn’t see it. “Have you got no shame lady?” he asked, his voice cracking and more beads of sweat formed across his brow.
She smiled, knowing she had rattled him which was her plan. “Come now Drake, you’ve seen a naked woman before haven’t you?” she asked as she got dressed, knowing he had turned around.
“You bet I have but I’ve never met anyone as bold as you,” he said, pinching the bridge of his nose.
Fully dressed she walks up behind him, resting her chin on the top of his shoulder. “Chill out, I know you liked what you saw.” She then moved towards the door. “Are you escorting me to dinner or what?”
He held out his arm for her to hang on to. “Your father would have me killed if he knew I saw you naked. Are you trying to get me killed?” he asked, wondering if that was her plan to get rid of him.
“I’m not going to tell him, are you? Well you know you could always quit this job, no one is forcing you to stay.”
“Is that why you’re pulling all these stunts? For the record princess, I never quit so why don’t you just give up and accept that I’m here to stay, I’m not going anywhere.” He walked with her down to the dining room and pulled her chair out for her just as her father walked in.
“How’s your headache dear?” he asked, sitting down.
“Much better now that Earl’s gone,” she replied.
“You really have to start being nicer to him. He will, after all, be your husband someday. Earl is a good man and will be able to take care of you, keep you safe.”
“I’m not going to marry that old geezer and you can’t make me.”
“Catherine, we will not discuss our personal business in front of the help. When Earl and I come back from our trip we’ll start with the wedding plans.” He placed his hand over the top of hers. “I love you princess and this marriage is for your own good. Now eat your dinner before it gets cold.”
She made the others jump when she screamed and using her arm she knocked her glass and plate off the table where they crashed onto the floor. She stood up, her face was red from anger. “I’ll kill myself before I become his wife. I hate you,” she snapped and walked out of the room.
Nicolas’s maid came and cleaned up the mess, he looked at Drake, shaking his head. “I apologize for my daughter’s outburst, she can be very headstrong at times. Please, finish your meal and tell me how you are getting along with her.” He felt embarrassed by her behaviour in front of Drake. He waved the maid over and told her to make up a plate for Catherine and take it to her, but to wait until she had calmed down.
Nicolas laughed. “That she does. Ever since her mother died and she lost her sight she worked so hard every day to gain her independence. She continued with her education, took self-defence classes which she still takes today, but you already know that. In many ways, she’s more alert than a person with sight.”
Drake started eating, being careful as to what all he said to him about Catherine. “She is a strong woman, likes to be independent.”
“How so,” he asked but already guessed most of it.
“My girl knows someone by their scent, they don’t have to speak. She can tell when someone is lying or scared by their breathing. Sometimes I think she knows what people are thinking before they speak, it’s kind of spooky.”
“Yes, I’ve heard that. To be honest, I’m surprised you’re still here, no one else has lasted this long so tell me your secret.”
“They do say when you lose your sight you gain others,” Drake said, pushing his empty plate away.
Sir, with all due respect your daughter is spoiled, has a mouth on her worse than a truck driver and she is definitely a handful. I’ve dealt with killers and much worse, I’m no quitter. If I’m to protect her she is going to have to do what I tell her. I’m not going to take any of her shit, yet I promise not to disrespect her.”
Nicolas nodded and chuckled. “I think my daughter has finally met her match. When I’m gone on my trip keep a close eye on her and please, whatever she does don’t leave her. I give my permission for you to do whatever you have to do in order to keep her safe.”
“I give you my word, now if you’ll excuse me I think I’ll go for a walk.” Nodding at Nicolas he stood up and left the room. He was walking by the kitchen when the maid came out carrying a tray of food which he assumed was for Catherine. “I’ll take that up to Miss Templeton,” he said, taking the tray from her and seeing the relief on her face.
“Who is it?” Catherine shouted out when she heard the knock at her door.
“It’s me, Drake, open the door.”
“Open it yourself,” she answered angrily.
“I can’t, my hands are full.”
She opened the door and stood back, knowing it was food by the smell she told him to set it on the table by the window.
“Whatever you do don’t knock this one to the floor or I’ll make you clean it up yourself,” he said as he placed it on the table.
“You wouldn’t dare,” she said snarkily.
“Try me,” he answered and waited to see what she would do.
She smiled and sat down, pulling the plate towards her. “Alright, you win, I’ll behave. You can leave now or are you planning on standing there and watching me?”
“If there’s nothing else I’ll leave you to it. Will you be needing me for anything else tonight?” he asked, not liking the smirk on her face. He felt she was up to something and knew he was going to have to keep an eye on her.
“No that’s all. I plan on making an early night of it and going to bed.”
I hope Catherine’s father doesn’t find of this seduction.🥶
