You put your hand on door number five's knob and stepped through the door.
You were met with the smells of spices and jasmine mingled together in an essence that enticed you.
Your eyes adjusted to the sun and you gasped at the sight that you were met with. You gazed at the magnificent bamboo garden around you, filled with vibrant greens of the well kept bamboo.
Looking beyond the garden you saw what looked to be a grand red palace, you gazed with wonder at the extravagance of it as you walked ever closer to it.
Looking around you gathered that it must have been owned by royalty,seeing as it's expensive looking nature, you further inspected it as you walked close enough to it where you could see the oriental look to it.
"Where am I?" you mumbled out loud, you were to engulfed in your snooping to notice the presence behind you until it was to late.
"Halt! Who goes there!?" a voice boomed.You jumped around to be faced with a sword aiming for your heart, you were scared silent as the guards grew impatient and dragged you into the palace and to a pair of very large doors.
You squeaked in pain when you were thrown through the doors and at the feet of a very grand throne. "So this is the intruder? She seems too pretty to be a spy" a smooth voice said from above you.
You looked up into almond colored eyes that were sparkling with amusement,"Hello there, I'm Yao, what is your name?"
You stared at Yao like an idiot before shaking yourself and stuttering "U-Um, _-_______"
Yao smiled and laughed "That's not a name you hear around China a lot, I take it you aren't from here?" You blushed at how handsome this man was, and he giggled at your blush.
"I take that as a yes, well then, get my beautiful guest a room" he said in that deadly smooth voice of his, one of the guards piped up "B-But emperor, what if she is an assassin sent to kill you? We cannot take that risk!"
Yao laughed while waving him off and said while looking you directly in the (e/c) orbs "Then I would be grateful to have died at the hands of a beauty like her"
You blushed profusely and looked down, not wanting to meet Yao's smoldering gaze once more, "I request dinner with you ______, alone" Yao sauntered toward you and ran a hand through your hair before dismissing you to prepare for dinner.
You were primed,scrubbed and polished to perfection by the ladies who came to you and when you looked in the mirror you would imagine being a princess with all the adornments Yao had sent you.
You wore a intricate red robe that was adorned with gold trimming and jewelry, it was something you had never even dreamed of wearing in your lifetime but you loved it.
At last it was time for dinner and you were directed to where Yao was, upon seeing him among the red and gold silk you could not help but admire his physic. Yao was not a buff looking man, but had long lithe muscles giving him the grace of a tiger and the speed of one too.
Yao looked up at you to smile a warming smile, "______, I am happy to see you wearing my gifts" he said, in what could be called a purr. He escorted you to the mountain of silk pillows and beckoned to to join him on them.
He sat you so close to him you could smell the spicy male scent that he seemed to give off, he turned to you and started to speak.
"_______, you are one of the most beautiful women I have even seen in all of my existence, I believe a beauty like yours should be treasured by someone who can give you anything you want in this vast world" he paused and brought your face closer to his "And this is why I have decided that you will be mine"
Your eyes widened as his mouth descended upon yours in a thundering kiss of fierce possession, he stole the very breath from your body only to replace it with his own, it was so melding your mind numbed and all you could think of was this man in front of you.
You two finally broke for breath and you laid your head on your loves lap, smiling dreamily up at him you whispered "I love the number 5"
