Romance & Bondage
Chapter Two : Sagria
ged marriage but you just melt my heart each and every second, she uttered and her eyes immediately dropped on the table, then shifted to the glass of wine next to her.
I want us to live a peaceful beautiful life. This is the start of it, he told her with a simple smile. She
nodded as they continued talking. While deep of our conversation, the waiter made his way towards
Can I get you anything? The waiter asked.
I would like flamed mussels with coconut and lemongrass, Aldric said as they both turned towards
Samantha whom looked at Aldric, then looked at the menu again, not knowing what to have. These
meals seem expensive too. More than 1 000 dollars, she was more likely confused and embarrassed.
She will have tuna grilled on the coals with smoked chipotle sauce, avocado, corn salsa and taco,
Aldric ordered on her behalf then the waiter walked away after jotting everything down.
I-I-Im so sorry Aldric -I-Im just not used to all of this and I–– he cut her off.
Hey Hey Hey Samantha, everything is okay. You don have to be embarrassed, its me. You don have
to pretend to be someone you
e not for my sake, were already going to spend the rest of our lives together, she nodded looking at his face. He was serious, that calmed her down.
Thank you, The waiter placed their plates down then walked away. She sighed taking both the
knife in her hands. They ate her food holding a conversation. The dinner went by with them talking and trying to get to know each other. It was late when Aldric drove Samantha back home.
I will see you, he told her softly. Samantha nodded smiling widely. She walked inside the house and
Aldric turned over his heel walking towards his car. Just then a figure suddenly appeared, Zeus Brassard.
How do you feel about getting into an arranged marriage? Zeus immediately asked, stepping next
to the man in a blue tuxedo.
Why would you ask that? he looked at him.
Im just wondering how fun it must be to marry someone you don know or are not in love with,
you guys will probably inspire my next project. You should come up with the tittle of it, he suggested mockingly.
I swear to God you don want to see me angry, Aldric swore.
If I want to? Look, I just find this ridiculous because marriage is a huge thing that is taken seriously a—
Taken seriously by whom? You? Aldric asked irritated. He never thought there would be someone who would question his decisions.
Not this one, he stepped inside his car immediately driving off leaving the other man standing by himself. Zeus. He didn treat Aldric like how everyone does and Aldric found that quiet annoying. He drove to his house where he took a bath then worked on his sketch before falling asleep.
Days and weeks passed within a blink of an eye. Aldric and Samantha saw each other more often but the other man was never at sight. He thought he could form a friendship with him. Aldric settled near the window, a cup of coffee on one of his hand
while the other hand was occupied by a book – a novel, more specific. You could hear the music
playing on the background, calming, soft and beautifully.
A small tight smile settled across his face as his eyes darted back to his novel. Taking another look at where he was, page 68. Color Me Red – an erotica novel written by Z.C Brassard. As a sigh escaped passed his lips, he placed the novel down and
stood up from his little comfort. Still, with a cup of in his hands The man stumbled towards the kitchen. He placed the cup in the sink, opening the tap and the water gushed out hitting the silver sink. He took a dish cloth, grabbing a dish washing liquid in between. Finishing off washing the cup, he rinsed it, drying and placed it back in the cabinet. He jogged back to his comforter and settled on it, looking out of the window again. This, the rain was a huge comfort during the past months. Sames goes to novels and music, RnB obviously. Aldric was listening to them a lot recently more than he did.
His phone vibrated. Causing him to huff grabbing his phone and rolled his eyes when a name he was
very much familiar with flashed across the bright screen. Aldric was invited to a little gathering at M&A so later that day, he went there. It was a boring business party
I have not seen you for a while now. Ivan said.
I do not go to the Red Door anymore since I will be getting married soon. As much as I would like
having a sub, being loyal to my partner is a priority.
The man said.
You will give up the lifestyle because of feelings…? That is not you. Aldric knew that was the truth
but his parents were the one that decided on this marriage so he cannot disappoint them.
This has nothing to do with feelings, he harshly said.
If you say so, I hope you do not make rush decisions though. You have been in this lifestyle since collage, it is part of you. That was what Aldric was afraid of. Once you start with BD** lifestyle, it isnever easy to quit. Finding a partner who would accept that part of you is neither easy too. The man
walked away to go for a smoke. He heard sounds from the room before noticing a man peeking in that room. He quickly stepped next to him and wrapped a hand around his mouth.
Shh, I will release you if you promise that you won scream. Aldric said roughly.
The man nodded his head so Aldric pulled his hand back and he looked down finding a younger man.
What are they doing there? Hes sexually harassing her isn he? the man asked pulling his cellphone. ”We should call the police. ”
He took out his call and immediately dialed the police number.
No hes not. Aldric replied pulling the younger one to an empty office after grabbing the phone between his delicate fingers.
How can you say he is not? I clearly saw him with my own eyes. He lashed out. ”Give me back my phone!! ”
You won understand, but know that he was not sexually harassing her or of that sorts, ” irritated.
But nothing, you saw nothing. Chance had no words. His eyes gathered tears and he immediately dropped them to the floor. The younger was feeling intimidated.
Aldrich watched the man drop his eyes looking down nervously while playing with his fingers before he looked at him then rushed out of the office.
After that, Aldric decided to go back home. The next couple of days he did not see Samantha nor Zeus, until he received a call from his mother.
Aldric how are you? It never hurts to call your mother once in a while do you know that right?
womans voice sounded causing Aldric to roll his eyes playfully. His mother was over dramatic when she wanted to.
Im okay. What about you mother? I asked back.
Good. I was calling because of something. I had an invitation to a business dinner but I will not be
able to tend to it. I was wondering if you can go on my behalf, you can take Samantha with you,
Aldric heard his dearest mother say and he immediately went silence, knowing very well why.
Mom, you know I don do well with a crowd. ” He told her.
”Can you ask Hector or David or Fiona… someone else? He asked his mother. David asked for Fionas hand in marriage a couple of weeks ago, they
were apparently high school sweethearts so they decided to take another step in their relationship by committing themselves to each other sooner. Aldric admired them a lot, Fiona was his cousin he
adored after all so seeing her happy made him happy too.
David is currently busy with school and Fiona too, there is no one I could ask. Please Aldric, I can
cancel on this at this time and besides, its a work thing.
He immediately felt like a shit son. One night in a fancy hall full of rich people who thinks highly of
themselves wouldn hurt anyone right? He will just keep calm and wait for the night to pass
smoothly. Being from a wealthy family and being rich himself, Aldric didn mean it was compulsory
for one to mingle with the rich so that was not an exception for Aldric Gaumond. He liked his space.
Fine. When? He told the exited blond haired woman on the other side of the phone. Diana
Gaumond knew that this was nothing but a set up date.
The gala starts at 6pm. the phone was suddenly disconnected. He sighed, thanking God that I did
not have any assignments for the upcoming project he was working on. He scoffed thinking about the
sketch he had planned on continuing through the night, his eyes traveled to the clock hanging on the
He yawned, looking out of the window after taking the novel he was reading — watching
out of the window. The droplets of rain hit the ground, the earth shaking to the calmest. The rain had stopped pouring after some time through the afternoon. It was one of the coldest nights in Manhattanand Aldric was grateful for the brown long coat he had made for himself. It suited him perfectly with the black formal pants he had on, and black formal shoes. He fetched Samantha before they drove for a while until the car stopped in one of the tallest buildings. Nerves crawled to every sense of Samantha, she looked at the building, nervously buring her inner thoughts.
Do not worry, everything will go just fine. So calm down.she followed Aldrics advice. Calm down.
When they stepped out of the car, their eyes scanned their surroundings and Samantha couldn help but feel so small, but she calmed herself down. Aldric felt good and powerful among others. Even though he hated the crowd, it didn mean he avoided people. He was too proud and domineering. He sure knew he was, such a narcissist human! Looking at the beauty the building had, he walked over. One of the hosts lead them to a hall and he couldn help but to admire the beauty the hall had. The design was out of this world.
Everything was fancy. Beautiful. A few minutes passed and they went to find a table where they
settled comfortably. As the time passed momentarily, Aldric was starting to get bored by the business talks there because he was too used to sewing machines and fabrics for such formality. A
waitress placed two glasses of wine in which Aldric grabbed one of them almost immediately, gulping
the liquid down which burnt his tongue as the bitter taste hit her throat, flowing passed.
I will be back, he told the black haired girl as he pushed himself from the chair, his shoes hitting
the white royal tiled floor as he walked around so he could find somewhere clear and thankfully, he
found a balcony. Stumbling his way there, his eyes fell on the lightened city.
I didn take you as someone to run away from a crowd, Aldrics eyes snapped towards the voice.
That should probably be offending. he stated.
I was not trying to nurse your ego, Zeus said. He was few feet away from him.
Touche, Zeus Brassard. You seem different in business galas. So timid and cold but I know you better than this, he hush with a little smirk.
Reminds you of someone? Zeus teased causing Aldric to chuckle.
I cannot say, An eerie silence fell on them after he uttered those words. I have been reading.
What is your favorite genre? the man asked. Aldric narrowed my eyes on him, He looked away shyly.
I love romance. Especially dark romance I have been reading your books most of the time and
wonder how well experienced are you in that department.
You don want to know. He grinned as his eyes fell to the city. They spent the nights talking like old friends.
You must live a good life. Most of the time, Authors who write romance are single and single life is the best. Aldric told the man.
I have the most shiftiest life ever. My family has fallen apart and I have not been in contact with my siblings except for Samantha. Zeus sighed.
How many siblings do you have? Aldric asked.
e four in total. Tree guys and one girl, he said.
The guys continued talking as the night passed. Aldric dropped Samantha at his house then he drove off.. As he was driving, he noticed a figure standing at the bus station as the rain was slightly pouring.
Hi. He said.
Hi. The other man smiled.
It seems like there wont be any help for you to go home. Do you want me to drop you off? Aldric
noticed his hesitant expression.
No, I will be fine. A smile flashed across the younger mans face.
I won kidnap you if you
e that worried. Come, I will drop you off. After a while he nodded with a
sigh and followed the man to the car. He comfortably sat on the passenger seat and the older man drove off. I believe we have met more than twice and I still don know your name.
Oh… Aldric heard the man say.
That is all you can say, the man chuckled.
My name… my name is Chance.. he cleared his throat dropping his eyes to his fingers. He had
noticed that the younger man always plays with his fingers. He was really cute with black fluffy hair
and marble brown eyes. His cheeks were soft even without touching them, you can easily notice that.
Mine is Aldric. Its nice knowing you…Chance. He uttered rather too softly. Chance, you work at M&A right?
Chance snapped his eyes towards the man at the question. He swallowed then nodded with huge eyes
at him. I would like to have coffee with you.
Well, t-that is not not necessarily. Its not like we know each other, we have just met in coincidence
only, He heard the panic in his small voice.
Some meetings are not by coincidence… He stated, his eyes falling back at the younger before he threw them towards the road. Some meetings are fated.
I think fate is exaggerated. Chance stated.
You think? A question followed.
Yes. It is just a pure coincidence, he breath out.
Insert your address. Chance did as told as they drove down the road. Aldric continued with a little
smirk, I still hope we could have some time for a cup of coffee.
I think we should not step any boundaries and respect each others space and decisions. We are still strangers after all. That was intriguing to hear from Chance. Aldric felt like the younger man was a very intriguing person, he had a great personality and his innocence was just admirable.. Silence fell on both of them.
Okay, hopefully someday you will share a cup of coffee with me. Aldric smiled driving.
The rest of the drive was full of since. Aldric was focused on driving when his phone rang. He sighed placing the phone on silence. With the GPS help, they finally arrived at Chances apartment.
Chance, Chance…the man softly said. He saw Chance snapping out of this thought as he was lost in the. He noticed a tear falling but he didn want to invade his privacy.. Are you okay?
Yes, I was just lost in my thoughts. he heard him say.
We have arrived…. Chance looked out of the window in surprise.
Thank you. Aldric nodded. He watched the man step out of the car, walking inside the apartment.
Aldric sat there for a while before he drove off grabbing his phone. He had three missed calls from his mother and thirteen missed calls from Samantha. He dialed her phone number and they went through.
Samantha… he trailed.
Aldric, I wanted to ask if you have arrived safely. he immediately felt bad for ignoring his calls.
Aldric was never a person of deceiving others so that made him felt guilty. He sighed.
Im sorry, I was busy. he answered in guilty.
