Chapter 1: Samantha's Betrayal
IT WAS almost midnight, yet someone was still sitting in front of the computer and working late. He’s determined to finish some tasks before going home. “Crap,” the man complained as he stretched his arms. He was wearing a faded black polo shirt that seems to be worn out, and black faded slacks. It’s the only thing he has, so no wonder it faded for a short amount of time. His name is Augustus Fordman— A passionate and hardworking guy working as a strategy developer at Sandoval Corporation. It is one of the most influential companies in the gaming industry despite its family ranking being in the top fifty only. Aside from that, despite being in good company, his co-workers mistreat him. His old clothes partnered with his black and thick eyeglasses were enough for his co-workers to think that he was portraying his nickname well. Pathetic commoner. “Hey. Aren’t you going home? Are you planning to sleep here?” said Kaylee, one of August’s co-employees. “You’re not doing overtime

Chapter 2: Bruce, the CEO's Son
AUGUST WASN'T able to move at first. His lips parted, and his eyes widened as he realized how Samantha betrayed him. Based on Peter and his other co-employees, Samantha and Bruce had known each other for a very long time. Which means that Samantha was also cheating on him for a long time as well. 'Is this the reason why you've been acting cold at me for all this time?' August breathed heavily. Every realization hit him right now—On how she wanted to make their relationship a secret. On top of that, she doesn't even want to acknowledge August as a colleague in the Sandoval Corporation. What Samantha asked was difficult for him, but because he loved her so much, and he wanted to make her stay, he never questioned everything she asked for. He promised to understand her, no matter how hard it was. 'And yet, this is what I got?' August clenched his fist tightly as he continued to watch the live broadcast. Bruce was still kissing Samantha passionately. His hands traveled onto her waist

Chapter 3: The Twisted Truth
WITH JUST one command, the bodyguards let go of him and took one step away from him. August turned his body to see who ordered them, only to see Samantha and Bruce. “So, it’s him…” whispered Bruce to Samantha before he leaned towards her, licking lightly onto her earlobe. "No wonder why you wanted to dump him so badly, baby." “B-Bruce…” said Samantha, feeling awkward as Bruce was doing naughty things in front of her ex-boyfriend. However, Bruce didn’t even budge. All she could do was close her eyes and feel how good Bruce’s tongue was. August suddenly clenched his fists at the sight. Bruce has everything everyone could ask for. Wealth, a good reputation, oozing sex appeal, and stamina that could make her moan in ecstasy every night, what more could she ask for? Everything Bruce has was the exact opposite of August. She never loved him, not even a bit. She just used him to buy the things she wanted, and to enter the Sandoval Corporation so she could execute her plan. ‘Samantha…’

Chapter 4: Young Master
"Did you already learn your lesson?" One of the bodyguards asked as he grabbed August’s hair and made him look up at the three men standing in front of him. One was crossing his arms while biting his lower lip, the other one was puffing on his cigarette, and the other one was squatting in front of him as he snapped out of his thoughts when he received another punch from that person. After Bruce told them that they could do anything about him, a strong punch in the gut was enough for him to scream in pain. Being unable to move as he felt his body was paralyzed, the bodyguards carried him to the parking lot. The other people didn’t care about what they would do to him, even though it would be something horrible. There, the bored bodyguards made him like a punching bag as he needed to take all the punches and kicks they gave him. August even heard how those men chuckled and laughed in ecstasy as they watched him cough blood while breathing rapidly. However, instead of letting fear

Chapter 5: He Needs To Be Strong
A week passed and all August did was sleep. The medicine the nurse injected helped him to heal in no time. He only knew that one day, he felt how his body became lighter, and how the swelling on his knee faded. Although the pain was still there, it was more tolerable than the last time. What the nurse told him before wasn’t a joke. The hospital, which is the Remington Medical Center owned by the multi-billionaire Charles Remington, didn’t ask him for a single penny for the days he spent in the VIP room. Someone really paid the hospital bills for him, and he knows that he should be thankful for it, but as Samantha broke his trust, it felt like he also lost trust in the world already. “Is there really no hidden motive here?” he asked, slightly suspicious of the nurse who gave him a document to sign. “Can I really go unscathed?” “If we’re planning to do something, do you think that we’ll cure you?” The nurse answered sarcastically and shook her head. As August parted his lips, comin

Chapter 6: A Grain of Salt
On the next day, August was staring at the screen of his phone while wearing a white faded t-shirt, faded pants, and a black old bag on his back. He slightly scratched his nape using his palm while thinking about what would he do with the huge amount of money that came into his bank account like a miracle. It’s the first time in a while that he’ll go to the Sandoval Corporation— and even though he wasn’t sure anymore if he was still an employee there, he would still take the risk and explain to the management the reason why he wasn’t able to work. “I don’t know whether I should use this or not…” August sighed as he tapped something onto the screen and used it to pay his monthly expenses. “But, yeah. At least I now have the money to pay for my expenses, or even ride a taxi.” Since the money was large enough for his expenses, he still has money to buy his wants, which never happened in his paycheck unless he would live a frugal routine. August didn’t know who sent him the money. He

Chapter 7: Brown Envelope
After the scene earlier in the room, Bruce, although it was against his will, carried August on his back and bring him to the hospital. Remington Medical Center was the nearest hospital to the Sandoval Corporation. Bruce also wanted to see Charles so he could have a good impression of him helping an employee. Since the Remington Family was an influential one, it was hard for the Sandoval Family to encounter them, even just a coincidence. Especially right now that the Remington family doesn’t want to ally with everyone. Yet Bruce won’t give up— knowing that there are rumors that the eldest heir of the Remington Family died a long time ago and Charles was just concealing the truth. If that were true, the second child of Charles, which is Sapphire Remington, would be appointed as the heir. Once he seduced Sapphire, everything would be easy for him. He was willing to dispose of Samantha for his greed. ‘With this, I can make the highest-ranking family my ally,’ Bruce said at the back o

Chapter 8: Shivers
“This is the crucial evidence Samantha had given to Bruce, proving that you abused her when you forced her to be with you.” Henry’s words lingered in his mind while staring at the polaroid pictures he was holding. It was Samantha’s pictures— where she had bruises on her skin, and a selfie where her face was swelling like someone slapped her. August saw this before, not because he was the one who did this, but because he was the one who treated her wounds every time Samantha calls him to seek comfort. He remembers all of it— the time he asks his girlfriend what happened but she never opened up to him, not even once. ‘Yet sir Henry tells me that it was evidence for an accusation against me.’ Thinking about it makes August crazy. When he played the mini-camcorder attached to the brown envelope, he gasped in anxiety as he realized where the scene on the camera takes place, and Samantha’s strange reactions at this time were planned all along. “N-No…” he muttered while watching. “This

Chapter 9: Yellow Liquid
“BREAKING NEWS. Bruce Sandoval, the eldest son of the Sandoval Corporation received an award from the Brooklyn Nominations for his new virtual game that was launched recently in their company. According to him—” August clenched his fists and tried to ignore what the newscaster on the television wanted to tell. He heard the news loud and clear yet it was mumbled in his mind. He was the one who created the proposal about the new video game for the company he had spent his life with, yet it was someone who took all the credit. “He is such a lucky man.” “Rich was getting richer, while the poor were getting poorer.” The conversation between the two drunk customers in the restaurant where he works as a waiter and dishwasher struck him. When Bruce and Samantha ruined his reputation, they didn’t just destroy him, but that rumor took everything he ever had. “Hey, man.” One of the customers called him and he immediately went in front of them. “Two more drinks.” “On it, sir.” August nodde

Chapter 10: The Offer
WHEN AUGUST opened his eyes, a room full of darkness greeted him. He was sitting on a chair made of steel, and when he tried to move his hand, he groaned in pain as he realized that both his hands were tied behind him. The rope tied onto his hand was tight to the point that he couldn’t feel his fingers even if he moved them. He roamed the whole area and noticed that the only light shining inside the room was coming on the little window at the top of the wall. It looked like an abandoned building, and he didn’t know why those people kidnapped him. ‘As if they would get something from me,’ August told himself. Aside from Bruce, he didn’t know anyone who could do something horrible like this— or even if people hated him, they wouldn't go to this extent. August snapped his neck in annoyance as an idea went into his mind like a light bulb. No one would do this except Bruce. “That bastard,” August thundered and gritted his teeth. His eyes were fixed on the small open door not too far
