NIKKI

I let the running water flow continuously as I washed my hands, letting myself cool. I looked up then looked at my reflection.

What are you doing, Nikki? Haven't you had enough of this? Why did I have to be caught up in this situation all the time? I shook my head, then took a handful of water and wet my face.

"You're marrying him?" a deep, dangerous voice abruptly spoke behind me. I looked back on the mirror and found Damon's perilous stare. He was seething.

"Do I need to get your permission?" I asked as I continued to damp my cheeks.

"Is that true what he said out there?"

"Why does it matter to you?"

"It does matter to me, " he said tightly. "You said you wanted me, but when I didn't answer, you're already running to Louis?"

I dried my face with a napkin, then I faced him. "Then what is your answer, Damon? No matter what we do, we can't be together."

"But you can't marry him." He grasped my shoulders, shaking his head.

"What made you think that I will? Now, please leave me alone before your fiancée pulls my hair in public."

He pulled me to him and enveloped me in his arms. I shut my eyes in pure desperation. I needed him beside me, and I needed to feel him like this.

"Why do I think you mean the opposite?" he whispered, his voice tortured. "I thought you didn't want me to go? You can't get rid of me now. I am obsessive, and I will possess you. I could get very jealous when it comes to you. I won't allow you to marry someone else."

I gasped. His mouth was only inches away from mine. "Damon..."

"Do you think that would stop me from claiming you—owning you? You can't. I don't mind having a polyamorous relationship, remember? Do you want it like that?"

I gaped at him in astonishment, unable to reply.

"Nikki?"

"B-but I don't want something like that."

"Of course not, I don't want it, either. But what can I do?"

"You are impossible, " I uttered. "You won't do that. You have to choose me for you to do that, which of course, you wouldn't."

"But you can't be my sister-in-law." He held my face. "Please, Nikki…"

"How about those thousands of people depending on you?" I shifted my head and tried to move his hand away, but he didn't let me.

"You see, darling, I could be very selfish sometimes, and I'm a damn billionaire. Give me some credit."

"You're giving up your obligations?"

"I told you, there's still always a way, and you're not going to hear it here. Leave with me tonight. No interruptions. No Bianca or Louis or anyone. Just us, please?"

Us. The sound of it made me shiver. "My boss, he's going to look for me."

"Do you follow all his orders?"

"Do you want him to term

d smiled to let him know that I was fine. I understood how he could still be a gentleman. She was still his ex-wife, after all.

We were abruptly interrupted when Louis came back with two glasses of cocktails.

"And here's your apple martini." Louis placed the cocktail in front of me. "Bianca seems drunk. Do you have plans with Damon tonight?" he said as he took a glimpse at our neighbors. Louis sat back.

"It depends on how he's going to manage his ex-wife." I stared down at my drink.

"Cheer up. Don't ruin your beautiful look tonight. Damon won't break his word. I know that we had a difficult past, but Damon is always the one who sacrifices first. I don't want to screw up again this time, and let me tell you something. He truly loves you. He was miserable when you were gone. He was unable to come home to change or even clean himself. Do you clearly understand that it was your fault why he had to deal with Bianca?"

"You clearly know everything."

"See? You don't have any right to grumble about it."

"Ouch."

"I didn't mean to be rude. It was partly my fault. I got in the way between you and Damon. Well, he got in the way first."

I raised my eyebrow. "Are you trying to make me feel bad?"

He laughed. "No, I'm just kidding. Come on!"

"And you chose to be straightforward." I rolled my eyes and sighed. "I just want his ex-wife to get her hands off him as soon as possible."

"Relax. We're not fighting here. I am just telling you to trust Damon. He's not going to cheat on you."

"Well, I just wanted to be sure that he would keep his promise."

"My brother won't let you down, I promise." He winked at me and drank a shot of his whiskey.

"Okay, I get it. Thank you, Louis."

He grinned. "Of course. Honestly, I'm happy for both of you."
