Yemi had come fully prepared. Though he had been very busy the past few days, he had squeezed time out for her. He missed her. He yearned to look into her beautiful eyes and tell her about his feelings.
‘Can I sit?’ He scanned her room which seemed empty. He noticed a velvety material on the bed, which definitely belonged to his sister. She was a velvet addict.

Cassie was too dazed by his presence to speak. When she parted her lips, no words came out and she blushed in embarrassment.
Damn! Why can’t I control myself around him? She thought. Whenever Yemi was around, her senses would fail her. Her palms would become sweaty, and she would look like a confused person. And she hated for him to see her that.
On a normal day, she was confident and bold. She wished she could walk right there and just throw her arms around him. Cassie wished she could make her fantasies come through at that moment.
Yemi noticed she was shy and reserved. That was surprising, considering she was the person that’d been giggling with Tayo, some minutes ago. He decided to cut the chase and hit the hammer on the head.
‘I won’t sit then, I’ll stand by you.’ He walked closer to the window. Cassie died a thousand times even before he reached there.
Yemi smiled, ‘Do you remember the first time you saw me?’
Cassie swallowed, and cast her mind back. It was the night they had been waiting for Eno’s arrival. The King had breezed in without permission. She hated him instantly, but she couldn’t deny the fact that Yemi was the most handsome man she had ever met.
‘I could tell from the way you looked at me, that you hated me. And your hatred increased when I took your sister.’ He stopped a breath apart from her. So that Cassie, could feel his warm breath on her skin.
She licked her lips and forced her eyes on him. She had been with too many people to act up like school girl. No, this wasn’t who she was. She was a vocal and bold woman. And she would tell Yemi what she felt for him.
‘You couldn’t blame me. I am not used to Kings breaking into people’s homes uninvited.’
Yemi chuckled. He was happy Cassie was more relaxed than when he came.
‘I know, I truly loved your sister. I thought she was the one for me.’
Cassie felt a tinge of jealousy when he said that. It wasn’t like she hated her sister; she just couldn’t stand him talking about any other woman.
‘I don’t love her anymore. She was never meant for me.’ He quickly said, he noticed the way her eyes darkened. He had to dispel her fears.
Cassie’s eyes didn’t falter from his’. She was no longer shy. She was ready for his amorous confession and he wouldn’t leave anything behind.
‘It is you I love.’ He collected her hands and began to play with them. He caressed and squeezed them at will.
‘I know you have passed through a lot with men. You have been hurt, deceived, betrayed and all of that. But I am different. I am not a polygamous King and would never be. I am promising you that. I love you Cassandra. Since the day you stepped into my palace, you’ve brought me joy and peace. You filled the hole that your sister left. All I am asking is for you trust me with your heart.
I do not want your body. I would’ve had you when I carried you in my arms that night. You were so beautiful in your sleep and I couldn’t help but watch. You are special to me.
You are the first woman to step into my chambers. I want you to be my queen and my valentine.’ He dipped a hand into his pocket and fetched and envelope.
Cassie’s eyeballs burned with unshed tears. She had not known this man for a very long time, but he knew everything about her. All long, she’d blame herself for staggering into his room, but he had swept her into his arms. His action revealed the romantic part of him. He was a kind man.
‘Are you still angry with me?’ Cassie’s lips trembled.
‘Angry? I was never mad at you. I just wanted to keep my distance, but I couldn’t control what I felt anymore.’ He peeled the envelope and pulled out two tickets.
A tear dribbled down her cheeks, ‘I love you too. But…I just hated being locked in this place. I miss my family. I miss my job…’ she began to sob.
Yemi couldn’t stand her sobbing; he quickly pulled her into his arms and placed a soft kiss in her hair.
‘It’s okay darling, we’ve been fighting this for too long. Love is like the sun, it doesn’t hide.’
When she’d calmed, he released her and offered her a ticket.
‘What is this?’ She asked without looking at it.
‘What do you think it is?’ He winked.
He had just been invited to Paris by the French President, who was also involved in the mineral he’d discovered. Vermillion was important, and most world powers would want to have a fair share.
‘I’m leaving for Paris in a few days. I’d like you to join me. We’ll celebrate our valentine over there. After which, we’ll look for a good fashion school for you.’
Yemi knew Cassie was different from most women. He prayed she didn’t turn down his gift. That would make him feel really terrible.
‘What?’ Cassie quickly skimmed the paper piece.
The King was offering to take her on a luxurious trip. That wasn’t enough, he wanted to be a part of her fashion design by involving himself in her dreams. She couldn’t believe it.
A part of her was excited about the offer, but another part made her feel like a gold digger. All her life, she was used to giving. She hardly received gifts from her past boyfriends. They only took her love for granted and the little cash she gave to them.
‘I…I don’t know what to say.’ She stuttered.
‘Just take this Cassie. You deserve it. You are diligent and hard working. Take this as a gift for my cruelty. If I hadn’t taken you away from your shop, you’ll still be working for your clients.’ He had to convince her somehow to accept this gift.
Cassie loved the offer. It was huge and juicy. Maybe the King was right; she deserved to have a little fun and happiness. This was perfect.
‘I guess falling in love with a billionaire King comes with its perks.’ Cassie winked. She would accept his gift.
Yemi couldn’t hold back his excitement. He pulled her roughly into his arms and crushed her tender lips with his wet and burning mouth. He had found the woman of his dreams. He had found a rightful Queen, who would share his bed and his throne.
He had found his Valentine desire in Cassandra Benjamin; a woman of substance.
Yemi had come fully prepared. Though he had been very busy the past few days, he had squeezed time out for her. He missed her. He yearned to look into her beautiful eyes and tell her about his feelings.
