Rejected and Auctioned off to the Demon King
After Red is rejected by her mate for being human her father decides the only thing he can do after her 19th birthday is auction off his psychic daughter.
The King wiped away my tear just before it fell. “I want to talk about your outburst. I can’t have you undermining my authority or I’m going to have to punish you.”
I looked up at him with my big gray eyes. “You brought me up here to threaten me?”
He turned his back to me and observed one of demon Venus fly traps. “Red. Do you know what it means to speak out agat me in front of my servants?” The fly trap opened up. “They will see I have a weakness for you and think they can disrespect me too. And then what will I have to do to show I have no weakness?” When he spoke his last word the flytrap chomped down on one of the fairies.
Chills ran down my spine. “You wouldn’t…”
He turned around with an emotionless expression. “You dare call my bluff?”
I said the first thing to come to my mind. “Your name. What’s your name?”
He raised an eyebrow. “Nolan.”
I couldn’t help but let a laugh escape my mouth and I slapped my hand over it immediately.
He stared at me blankly because he was taken aback. “You find that funny?”
I shook my head and let my hand fall. “It’s kinda beautiful… I didn’t expect that to be the name of the Demon King.” I laughed.
He watched me curiously. “Mine.”
I looked up from my laughing fit confused. “Huh? Your what?”
“You’re going to be mine.” He clarified. “My new Queen.”
My eyes widened. “Wait what?? But I thought you bought me for your son??”
