"Mr Williams?""Come in Mike." He walked in and stood in front of Lucas's table. "Please, sit down.""Thank you sir.""Yes well, I called you here to ask about the bidding. I wanted Ivy Mochi to be announced as the winner so, what happened?""Well sir, I went through her file and well…her bid wasn't high enough to meet the company's requirements so I thought I should inform you before making any decision."That might be a problem. Situations like this usually required an investor or someone who was willing to put down a lot of money, and Ivy didn't have anyone like that, her mother could probably help but he knew she wouldn't, especially because of the dare. "What should we do sir?""Give me some time to think, I'll let you know my decision.""Alright sir.""Thank you.""You're welcome sir."★★★"Look at what you've done Ivy, you've ruined us. How are you going to save us from this debt? Tell me!.""Mother, please calm down. The winner hasn't been announced yet, we might still have a
"I have told my wife to place the bid. And here's my proposal. If she wins, you must all promise to make Ivy over here," he paused to steal a glance at her, and the worried state on her face propelled him to speak faster, "the family CEO, and never ever, mention us divorcing again." "And if she doesn't win?" Said Peter, almost instantly. He was losing his patience already. "Then, I'll leave her and never bother this family ever again." There was a loud gasp from Ivy, a slender hand covered on her opened mouth. This reaction followed a raucous laughter from Blanche, and Peter followed in the footsteps of his mother. Her mouth twitched with a smile, and let out a triumphant yelp. "Oh... So you, you want to tell me that... Seriously?" Another series of thundering laughter followed. "You think that she would win? That you can win this bet? Ha!" A faint tremor of amusement was on his lips. Lucas watched in silence all through their drama. He was certain that his wife would win.
FLASHBACK.Twenty five years ago.James Williams was seated in front of the bald, old man before him. It was another tiresome day in front of Thomas Garcia, his rival and CEO of his opposing company. That day, he had gone there for the same reason he had been frequenting the company. He was waiting patiently for a positive reply until Thomas began to say;'I'm sorry to inform you that…' The rest of the sentence grew redundant to James's ears. His offer had been rejected. Again! He glanced up to the ceiling and shut his eyes tight, trying to contain the anger that was brewing inside of him. This was all Thomas's doing, that bastard!.James had been trying to get a permit to begin his new project but Thomas was doing all he could to prevent it from happening.Not wanting to go home and report the news of his failure to his wife he decided to go to the usual bar where he hung out with his friends.Being the kind of person that he was, James didn't have much friends. He wasn't exactly
"What did my mother do?" She asked as she stood by the entrance."Ivy, when did you get back? I thought you went for a walk." Lucas immediately got to his feet."What did my mother do Lucas?" She repeated the question, tears already blurring her vision."Nothing, she didn't do anything." He tried to sound casual but she could see the unmistakable look of fear in his pale blue eyes, fear that she might have found out something."What are you hiding from me Lucas?" She questioned with trembling voice."Nothing.""Detective Jones, what are you doing here?" "We were just discussing the progress of the investigation.""Do not lie to me, I know what I heard Lucas." This was the worst way she could find out something so huge, and it was definitely not the way he intended on telling her. "Look Ivy, there's no easy way to say this but–""While I was investigating," detective Jones interrupted, drawing her attention to him. "I found out that your mother was an acquaintance to the main suspect
In the previous post, we talked about what was and what is, so in this part we will be diving into what will be.Grover seemed to believe she was responsible because she went with them but what he didn't know was that she wasn't the only one there. Lucas's parents left the mansion with Blanche but they stopped to pick up her husband, Milo on the way. Another surprise guest they had was none other than Mr William's best friend, Festus Augustine.So instead of one prime suspect, he had three, and they all had separate motives to harm the couple.Milo's and Festus' motives were very similar, it was obvious that both men were after the wealth of James williams.Blanche on the other hand wouldn't have wished him death, according to Grover, she was very much in love with James at the time so she couldn't have wished him death. But, she had a motive to kill his wife instead. Diving further, he noticed something that seemed to catch his attention. She was a suspect for murder but the allega
Good day everyone, it's just me checking in again.I hope you all are enjoying the book so far, and I honestly appreciate your love and support so far.Well, before we dive into the next chapter, I though we could just a stroll down memory lane and re-experience our best moments from the previous chapters and you can let me know your best moments down in the comment section."Your Honor, my client has already been sentenced…for twenty years, I really don't see any reaon we have to add to it." Marco's lawyer had been trying to convince the Judge that he didn't need any extra sentence…and Lucas's lawyer wasn't having any of it.~~~★★★~~~"Your Honor, the sentence given to Mr Platana was for his illegal businesses and not for his other crime. Right in front of our very eyes, he attacked an officer of the law, took forceful possession of his firearm and shot an innocent man.""That was an accident.""Maybe, but he intended to shoot and kill an innocent woman. Was that an accident as well?
Lucas stood by the entrance of the room, contemplating on if going outside would be a good idea or a bad one.On one hand, he wanted to go out to defend Ivy, because he always hated it whenever her mother was talking to her the way she was doing now, it always made Ivy feel bad…even though she was hardly ever at fault.But on the other hand, he wasn't sure if he wanted her to know he was awake just yet, letting everyone think he was still unconscious might be an advantage to them.After almost ten minutes of waiting impatiently, and occasionally pacing around, he finally decided to let Ivy deal with the issue herself.Ever since they were younger, Ivy didn't like standing up to her mother, so he always did it for her, it didn't matter that he would be punished for it.He could remember when he was sixteen, Blanche was throwing Ivy a party for her fourteen years birthday and she wanted to decorate her up to her taste…of course Ivy didn't want to but, she couldn't voice out her complain
