His Purchased Wife novel Chapter 12

"Fuck!" I heard him. I couldn't control my emotions anymore as I burst into tears. I didn't know when he ended the call and when he walked to me.

"Aurora, love. Please, stop crying."

I was feeling humiliated by the way he treated me. No one had ever treated me this disrespectful in my life but he did, The man I love humiliated me today. I have been trying to change myself for the past two months for him. He didn't like going shopping with me when I love shopping, so I learned to live with it not only that there are many things which I won't do because he didn't like them.

Going to dance clubs for one, I love going there and dancing my heart out while he likes watching some stupid Football League. I love watching romance movies and he didn't like them. I love talking about fashion events and designers as I am a jewellery designing student but he doesn't like any of those things. Still, I was trying to like the things he likes, I was trying to adapt to his ways but he doesn't see them.

What he saw was I said something which hurt him, it was not like I said those things to hurt him and I am feeling ashamed for using those words.

"Aurora, please look at me…" he spoke, making his voice soft. I shook my head and he held my chin softly, raised my head and made me look at him.

"I am sorry love, it's just that I was angry with you…"

I didn't know what came over me and I started beating his chest with my fists. "I hate you...I hate you…" I sobbed while beating him. "I hate you…"

He didn't try to stop me and when I stopped beating his chest he pulled me in his arms and hugged me tightly. "Calm down, love. I am sorry for the way I behaved with you."

I was still sobbing in his arms. "I hate you."

"But I love you, my darling. I love you more than anything else in this world." He said, caressing my hair with his hand. He scooped me in his arms and took me to the couch. He made me sit on it and held my face, wiping the tears from my cheek. He placed a soft kiss on my head.

"I am sorry again, love."

I hugged him again. "No, I am sorry for what I said but Gabe, it was not my intention to hurt you. It's just that I didn't like the way you were talking about my dad."

Gabe sighed. "I know...but whenever someone mentions my dad I feel as if someone was burning me alive. I couldn't forget the way I saw my dad burned alive by his enemy, Aurora and I am telling you for the last time, don't ever mention my father again. I didn't know what came over me when someone did that."

I raised my eyes and gazed into his. I could see the pain in them and I wanted to share it. I touched his cheek softly. "Gabe, can you tell me what happened to your dad?" I asked him.

He sighed, fisting his hands tightly and nodded. "My Dad was getting life threats from some wrong people sometimes two years ago. But he was brave, I never saw my dad getting feared by anyone. He was the strongest man I knew but one day I lost my strong man, I lost my dad forever…" he took a deep shaky breath.

I held his hand to comfort him. "Gabe…"

He shook his head. "My dad was coming back from a meeting at one of his restaurants. I was going to surprise him but couldn't because some people attacked him, he fought with them but what can a man do against twenty men. They tortured him and burned him alive, I couldn't even give him a proper funeral.

I was stunned to hear him, his body was stiff in anger as he told me about his father's death. A shiver ran down my body hearing how his father died.

"Gabe, who were these people? Why would they do something this horrible to your dad?" I whispered.

He sighed. "As I said, people from the wrong side, My dad denied giving them money and they killed him."
