Stranger Untold #4


Black pearl ~ post4

The sky was orangey even it was afternoon. The heat wasn’t very heartless when he was sitting next to me. The other side of Queens forest was grandeur. Perhaps the town’s people hadn’t reached this part ever. I hadn’t seen any people here except us atypically. Anyway it was beautiful.

“I’m sorry for your parents.” _ His voice evaded the silence between us.

“You don’t have to be sorry. It was my fate.” _ I was sad. I was missing them.

“What is that on your neck?” _ He pointed to the locket of my neck.

“Oh, it’s a black pearl.” _

“Where did you get this?” _ He asked curiously.

“Mother gifted me on my eighth birthday.” _ I murmured sadly.

“Black pearl is really rare. Where did your mother find this?” _ He asked anxiously tho’ his face was serene.

“I don’t know. She didn’t tell and I hadn’t asked too.” _ His curiosity for the black pearl made me a little confused. Moreover I was elated that we talked even for my locket for a while.

We took our step to the stream. I asked him about the stream on the way. He told his home was beside the stream. When I asked his name, he kept it secret till we reached the stream. My optimistic legs followed him as the path was full of hopes.

The sky changed shades to crimson, the sun was hiding and the castle beside the stream appeared to be an ancient architecture. The skin on his face was shining like clean crystal in twilight. Eventually we reached the front door. It was a very big and tall door I had ever scene. The door opened itself when we stood closer to it. My eyes turned wider seeing the interior, huge collection of unique arts, paintings and rare crystals on the walls. The whole environment was captivating but spooky, the less number of furniture bewildered me. I turned to ask him about furniture. He wasn’t there. He wasn’t anywhere. I yelled to every corner but he didn’t appeare. I stared the walls hysterically. I sprinted to the front door, my hands slammed with whole force, it wasn’t opening.

My hands were on soil, my body was tired. I sat under an old pine tree but he didn’t look back. He wasn’t stopping like it was urgent to reach the stream before sunset.

“I can’t walk now. I need to rest.” _ I tried to say louder but my tongue was thirsty for water and my stomach was screaming for food.

He rushed to me within seconds. My eyes couldn’t notice how he turned back so fast. I might be hallucinating out of hunger.

“No no, you can’t rest. We have to keep going.” _ He said rudely. It struck me with a little shock, anyone could be spellbound by his angelic charm but his approach towards me wasn’t usual. There was lack of harmony between his features and gestures. At the same time, I admitted inside my head, he saved me afterall.

“I can’t walk. I’m so hungry. Aren’t you hungry a bit?” _ I was dying in hunger.

“Okay,okay. I’ll get fruits for you. Just stay here. Don’t go anywhere. It’s not safe.” _ He sounded strict like he was commanding me. And I nodded like a disciple to his command .

Those apples were green like his emerald eyes. He surprised me again by green apples. There was not a single tree of apple close to us. He brought them within seconds and put on my palms.

“You should have one too! You must be hungry!” _ My manner was right there. I couldn’t deny, he was miraculous being, there was no sign of hunger or tiredness on his body, not a single drop of sweat on his skin after walking two hours under the sun. He only glanced at me saying he already had. It was hard to believe but I was afraid too to ask him anymore.

I was so hungry so I decided to think about it after eating apple. I had only one apple, I felt my stomach full. My tongue had never tasted such sweet apple before. He might be really a pagan god of nature.

“Can we continue now?” _ His voice was restless yet so firm.

I knew he won’t like it at all but I was sitting there silent. He came closer with expressionless face and his jaws were tight. He might be angry upon me. Unexpectedly my little fear flew away when he sat right next to me. Oh, these emerald eyes would kill me one day!(I whispered inside my head)
