So here is an update.

Juliette Pov

I looked around at my surrounding. What I could only see was sand and only sand. I was sweating and the only thing which I wanted was to drink a glass no a gallon of water. I was that thirsty.

A moan escaped my mouth and groaning my eyes fluttered open. I tried to sit and leaned against the headboard. Last night events rushing into my mind. All I could remember was coming back into the room and taking medicines before passing out on the bed.

I looked towards the nightstand to find a glass filled with water. Feeling blessed, I took the glass and gulped down the water immediately getting relief from the burning sensation and thirst.

"Thank God, " I said and kept the glass back on the nightstand.

"Juliette?" I heard the door knock and mom poked her head asking me if she could come in.

"How are you feeling sweetie?" She asked as she sat next to me on the bed.

"I am feeling good now, " I told her and she kept her cold hand on my forehead checking my temperature.

"The temperature seems to be down, " she said and brushed the strands of hair out of my face.

"Juliette you should have told me that you were not feeling well. I would have never kept the party at the first place. You got sick probably because of lack of rest after your long travel from Egypt. It's all my fault. I should have been careful" she said which made me shook my head no.

"No! It's not your fault. Its me actually. I was sick because of the climate probably. That's all. You don't need to blame yourself for such a small thing" I said and she gave me a weak smile before getting up.

"Zachary was really mad at me this morning, " she said which made me cough.

"Worried? Z-Zachary?" I asked with wide eye disbelieving what she just said.

"Yes, he was. Why are you giving me this disbelieving look? Zachary scolded me this morning for not noticing your behavior and when I said I did notice it, all hell broke loose on me" she sighed as she kept her hands on her waist.

"Why would he do that?" I thought.

"Anyways. My son can be scary at some times. If I don't take care of you now then probably I will be deaf hearing all his tantrums. He reminds me so much of my mother" she shook her head probably remembering the time she spent with her mother.

"Today you are not going anywhere. I am in charge to take care of you. You are going to rest here the whole day. Allow your mother-in-law to take care of you today dear" she said which made me chuckle.

"Okay! Just sleep a little long before I bring you your food and medicines okay?" She asked as she tucked me back into the sheets.

"Okay!" I said and closed my eyes.

She reminded

e said in an intimidating tone which almost made me whimper like a child. Nevertheless, I got up and went to the bed. He threw the pillow on my lap and I kept it under my head before getting into a comfortable position.

I was still worried for him to sleep on the couch but all my concern for him went out of the window when he crawled next to me on the bed and covered himself using the duvet.

"W-What are you doing?" I asked but I got no reply.

I watched his back for few minutes thinking that he would get up at any minute and go back to the couch but nothing ever happened as I thought.

Reluctantly, I lied down and turned towards the other side. Mentally, I prepared myself for screaming and even for putting up a fight if he ever put a finger on me. I tensed when he flicked the lights off.

"God" I whispered to myself.

After remaining conscious for about an hour expecting any kind of act from him, I took a sigh of relief. Probably, he was not that kind of guy. But how Ironic, I find the Zachary sleeping next to me and the one who killed my fiance in my wedding looks so different.

Back then, only the way he spoke in that church before shooting made me whimper and scared shitless but the Zachary I'm dealing with today although is not different from that one but still he doesn't make me hunching down in fear.

As if both of them are a different person with the same personality. Thinking of it I still don't have any clue upon why Zachary killed Emmett and why he married me when he could have just killed me. What did Emmett do to him for all this enmity?

"Emmett what were you hiding from me?" I whispered before I slipped into a deep slumber with the medicines reacting in my body.
