"Amira....." he called softly and gently, holding her tight to him, with his arms wrapped around her waist. Amira stood still, frozen. The way he called her name and held her tight, made her mind go empty. The tight hold on her heart, lessened and was replaced with rapid beating.Surprisingly, she was calmed and felt at peace. She felt secured and safe. How could his hold on her do that to her? How did it made her calmed so easily.She closed her eyes and allowed her heart to accept his warmth. They were both getting some comfort from their embrace and warmth. Nicholas turned her to face him and slowly caressed her cheeks, staring unblinkingly in her eyes.The weather was windy, causing the room to be chilly. The window was opened and so the winds blew right in, hitting their skins but they were unmoved by it. Slowly, desires and want began to grow stronger that moment and they both shut down the screams from their heads.Nicholas eyes moved to her lips. Her succulent, inviting lips.
The man in the photo looked familiar. He wasn't wearing a mask. She tried remembering where she saw him but couldn't. She sighed and dropped the photo. Maybe she just saw him somewhere and it mean nothing much. She left the window and went to her bed. She will find him and speak to him.Her dad gave her his number which she have tried to call severally since his arrest but he wasn't picking up. She laid on her bed and closed her eyes.When she gets to talk to the man and her father is set free, they will make sure to take Nicholas out of their house and this time, the three of them will work together......Nicholas switched off his laptop when he heard footsteps approaching his room. He was certain it was Amira. She was back earlier than expected. He hid the laptop and sat back on the bed, which was pushed opened. Amira walked in looking all tired and worked up. She looked at him with a smile on her face and walked further, going to stand before him."Was I out for too long?"Nichola
"Grandfather......""Please accept this offer. I worked so hard to keep that company straight. I worked so hard to become this successful. I worked so hard to get the business to where it is right now. But, it's getting ruined right before my eyes and I can't do anything about it. I need someone capable and you have that capability. You are smart, wise and have good strategies. You showed me your abilities several times. So please I beg you, save my business." he pleaded.Yes, that was what Nicholas want. It came so easy than he thought. He wanted the company and then he destroy it. He want to destroy all the hard work of Charles and the Auger's family entirely."If that is what you want grandfather, then I will do it. I wouldn't want your hard work to go to the drain. I will take care of everything until you are strong enough to take over the business. For now, you should get better so you can return back to being you."Charles smiled and nodded. He was lucky to have a grandson in-la
One week later......One week after Eduardo was exposed. One week since his arrest. The whole house was different from the way it used to be. Even though it had little life before, this time, it was lifeless and completely dead. Everyone being living a sad and quiet life. The deed of their father, Eduardo came as a blow to them. The news got to the media and like a wild fire, the deed and arrest of Eduardo Auger spread across the internet and around the globe. It got everyone talking. One of the most respected family isn't that honorable as they thought. The reputation Eduardo fought so hard to keep was destroyed by his own hands.The prison wasn't favorable for Eduardo as he keeps getting bullied there by his fellow cell mates. No matter how he warns or threatens them, they wouldn't listen or stop their assault. This was as a result of the cell warden, instructing them secretly to do so, following the order of big boss who paid them a huge money for that. He was getting what he dese
Eduardo moved back in fright seeing who was standing by the door with handcuff and police men beside him. The assassin who he had hired to kill Nicholas. He was shocked beyond words. Big boss sent a video of him been killed. He thought he was killed. Why was the supposed dead man before him?"You remember him?" Charles asked, pointing his finger at the man.Eduardo couldn't say anything. His throat were completely dried and word were not forming in his brain. It all felt bewildering. It was impossible. Did big boss deceived him? But he watched the video of him being killed."He is the one who sent me. I only worked for him. I was ordered to kill Nicholas and I did as I was told. Mr. Eduardo is the mastermind of everything."Eduardo couldn't believe his eyes and ears. He didn't bother to even ask Big boss about the assassin and also didn't bother about it."And also, he threatened me. He threatened to kill my family members if I expose the truth. I thought it was all over, but he call
Eduardo dropped his phone with happiness visible on his face. Finally, all he was fighting for was coming in place. He is still Eduardo, the man who is feared by the people. The man who contributed in making the Augers feared. He is still the same man and never changed at all.His plans were still as successful as it always have been. What a day for him.The money will arrive at the mansion soon and it will be handed to Nicholas. The whole family will see this and at the same time, the accounting manager will call his father to tell him about the huge money loaned by the bank which was Nicholas doing. Nothing will be able to save Nicholas.Charles, his father, hates lies, betrayers and theft. He will now see Nicholas as a betrayer and thief. He is just a fraud who want the company money and Eduardo will just make it worst by telling them that Nicholas was only there for revenge. Big boss will come in just as planned and reveal himself as the godfather of Nicholas. Boom, Nicholas will
Nicholas laid on the bed, staring at the ceiling thinking about his next move. He was able to get back from the hideout successful as the family were stills asleep.He had a long conversation with big boss. It turns out to be that the assassin sent by Eduardo was actually alive. The video sent to Eduardo to scare him was just an edited video.The assassin was in the hideout too, in a torture room. It was just as Nicholas requested. When Tony shot Nicholas, they made a video with the captured assassin. His legs and hands were bind while his mouth covered with a piece of cloth. After making the video to be sent to Eduardo, they took him to the torture room as instructed.The aim of doing that was so Eduardo wouldn't bother himself about the assassin exposing his secret. He will look over it thinking he is free, but that will only be his destruction. Now, they are going to use the assassin to bring his downfall.A drama will be made that day and Nicholas was anticipating for that drama.
Charles waited patiently, seated in the VVIP section of the famous seafood restaurant. Just as he requested, he was given a secret room that can only be granted to VVIP customers who requested for it. Staying in that room did cost him a lot of money but it was nothing to him. One million dollar was nothing. What he wanted to do in that room was way more important than the expenses and he was willing to pay more as long as his goals that day were achieved.He breathed in relief when a young man walked in, panting. He must have ran to the secret room, so Charles thought."What kept you so long?""Sorry about it sir, got caught up in a traffic and I noticed some men trying to follow me but I was quick and wise enough to escape them.""Some men were following you? Who were they?""I don't know sir. Their car glass was tinted so I couldn't see their faces." he replied and sat down opposite Charles. "But I was successful." he added and handed over a flash drive over to Charles.Not only did
