“Ah, you’re awake.” He said and smiled at her. “Want to eat something?” She nodded and Brandon asked someone to bring them food. Lucy waited and when it arrived, two big trails full of food. “Br, mean, Friedrich, why all that food? “ She asked him, astonished. “I didn’t know what you were eating today. I, for sure, am going for those muffins.”Looking at Lucy, he regretted not getting back to his family sooner. If he had done that a day earlier, he wouldn’t have to ‘die’ and leave Lucy. She almost went nuts because of his loss. And that was when he regretted it the most. And also, when he knew she loved him for real. “I’ll take care of you from now on, Lucy. I promise you.” She smiled at him. She wanted to hear that. Not from him, but…“When you’re not making advances, you’re quite nice.” She said and he laughed. She wanted to cry, because that was Brandon’s laugh. “I think I made quite the impression on your mother.” He boasted. “Of course you did.” Lucy rolled her eyes. “You
“What do you mean by that, girl?” Augustina asked, then she looked at Brandon and gave him a weak smile. “Don’t mind her. She is a bit silly. But professional and competent.” “So, is that a yes or a no?” Brandon asked, looking from one to another. “It is a yes!” Augustina said, supplanting Lucy’s ‘no’. “Great! Do you mind coming with me? I have some things I would like to show you already.” He said and Augustina nodded, pushing Lucy out of the door. “Mom! I am not dressed for that!” Lucy said, uncomfortably. “Nonsense. “ Brandon said. “I don’t mind it today. Why do you prefer to shower and come back in… twenty minutes?” He asked, looking at his wrist watch. “Great! That’s all she needs!” Lucy was pushed again, now, inside the house. While Lucy was gone, Augustina smiled at Brandon. “Mr. Ashford, your wife must be very proud of you!” She said and Brandon knew she wanted to know if he was single. “Yes, I bet she is.” He said, referring to Lucy, but her mother didn’t know that.
Inside, Brandon was fuming, but on the outside, he even smiled, politely. Damon was paralysed by the door, looking at Brandon, no, at Friedrich. “B-brandon?” He asked, stuttering. “No, Mr. Montgomery. My name is Friedrich Ashford.” Brandon said and got up, walking to Damon and offering his hand for a shake. Damon didn’t change much, Brandon thought. He was muscled, and that was it. “Friedrich? I’m sorry, you really look like someone else.” “Oh, I bet I do. I had a twin.” Friedrich said and smiled. “A t-twin?” “Yes, a twin. He was a rebel, you see. Left the family, and in the end, we were the ones having to clean up his mess.” Damon frowned. He didn’t like Brandon, but what mess did the family clean? “Wasn’t him… murdered?” “He was. But we don’t have to talk about those private family affairs. What is it that you’d like to discuss?” Brandon asked in a very polite manner. “Please, take a seat.”“Thank you, Mr. Ashford.” Damon said. “Well, my company is looking for investors a
Lucy went to the gym where Brandon used to work and train. She looked around and didn't see him, but she wouldn't give up so easily.“Oh, excuse me.” she said to the receptionist. “I look for Friedrich Ashford…”“Who’s looking for him?” the receptionist asked in a very polite voice. “Lucinda Fairfax.” She replied, with a friendly but nervous smile.The attendant asked her to wait while he checked to see if the man she was looking for was there. After a few minutes of waiting, the attendant asked her to follow the other employee.She did and came to a farther room, much larger, with mirrors. And Friedrich was there."I knew you'd like to talk to me." He said and Lucy almost fainted. The voice was the same. More serious, perhaps."Oh yes. I… well… are you related to Brandon Ashford?” She asked and the man, who was shirtless, smirked. He slowly approached Lucy.“And who wants to know?” he asked and she knew he was playing. They asked for her name, minutes before.“Lucinda Fairfax.” She
“I need to see all the company documents.” The man spoke from behind the desk."Yes, sir." The assistant answered, bowing and leaving the office.The man in the suit gets up, turns and looks at the people below. Out of all those people, there is only one person who matters to him, and now that he was back, he would rescue her.Knock-Knock“Mr Ashford?” A female voice sounded from the other end."Come in."The redhead walked into the room, smiling at Brandon.“I brought the papers you asked for.”“Why, please, Ellie. there is no need for so much formality.” He said and sat back down.“We are in the company. We do need formality.”The year and a half that Brandon was away made all the difference in his life. He recovered from the attempt on his life, and studied abroad, graduated, mastered martial arts, and now he could defend himself very well. Not just him, but her."How is she?" Brandon asked. He knew of Lucy's state of madness."She is better. She went back to college. Apparently, h
Damon couldn't believe that Lucy was finally being more active. She was on his lap, letting him put his hands inside her shirt, cupping her breasts over her bra."Let me suck your nipples, Lu." He asked. She nodded, taking another look at the house.Damon helped her off with her shirt and marveled, imagining that he could only have died and gone to heaven.He was not a virgin. In fact, even during their engagement, he had slept with others. He had needs and he'd tried to keep himself away from other women, but it was hard. 'But if Lucy gives in, I'll just need her,' he thought.His hot mouth had her moaning and her hips rolling.In her head, she was calling out to Brandon, asking him to possess her.Inside the house, Simon hadn't even noticed that the boys hadn't left, as the car was still there. However, Rindley noticed.He looked disinterestedly at the car, so much so that it took him a while to realize that Lucy was topless, Damon holding one of her breasts and sucking the other. L
That day there would be no training as Chung-hee had traveled to Korea. Brandon finished cleaning up and he and Lucy left together. They walked to the back street and ordered a cab.Lucy was beyond nervous. But she wanted it. She really wanted to be with Brandon. Because if Damon continued to insist, she would be angry about it and she wanted to at least know that she gave her first time to the man she loved who loved her back.Brandon was sweating cold. It was super cold outside where it had started to snow, but Brandon was sweating.They got out of the taxi and entered his building. He was so nervous, he couldn't even put the key in the lock.Once inside the apartment, he showed her where everything was, including the bathroom. He'd showered in the locker room, but even so, he was afraid he wasn't clean enough. Lucy asked to take a shower. She also showered before leaving the house, but…Images of what had happened to him when Erika had asked to go to the bathroom and then the hotel
The week started wonderfully well, from an academic point of view. Exams week.The world of all students was chaotic, especially for those who left to study at the last minute.Brandon was one of the few who were more than calm, after all, as much as he worked and trained, he studied every day.He and Lucy texted each other since their last meeting, and as the days passed and the weeks went by, he and she grew closer.Damon was still suffering from the 'punishment' imposed by Lucy's father, but he took every opportunity he had to be with her.Rindley visited Ellie whenever she went to the gym and he heard about it. How did he know? She and he spoke daily.Brandon didn't like Ellie, a person he was very fond of, being involved with Rindley at all. However, apparently Rindley was so focused on her that he stopped worrying and upsetting Lucy and him.In reality, Rindley didn't realize that he was actually getting involved with Ellie much more than he had planned.One fine morning, his mo
