AT THE GLASS HOUSE. "Don’t you think it’s too early for him to start exercising his powers? He’s not even installed yet!" Olvido raced as the door opened. He was partially drunk when he got the impromptu call. "You have no choice; you had a chance to stop him!" Andallio raged. Grandma Pilar walked into the living room with Stephanie. "Why is your smile so noticeable and contagious today, Grandma Pilar?" Herveaux pulled a deceitful joke on her."It’s a smile of relief that someone finally got a simple job done after all this time." She replied rustily. "Yeah, that must be her; welcome her in, Stephanie."Stephanie went outside the house. She returned with Esmeralda and some other men who worked for Grandma Pilar. They handed the briefcase to Grandma Pilar. "There’s no point in celebrating a fake chip; it's as good as useless!" Olvido snapped. "But it does add to our net worth and list of properties; I envy you, Esmeralda; you are worth the hype." Andallio praised her and raised a
AT THE COMPNAY. Arturo was fuming when he arrived at the company. He was told off by the secretary that there wasn’t any meeting between the shareholders, but he wasn’t leaving, regardless. He wanted to meet with the board members.Brandon went to see Arturo after he spotted him on the walkway. He didn’t have an office on standby, but he was already at the waiting center when Brandon got to him."Did Olvido kill my father?" he asked bracingly. Arturo peered at him vilely. "There's no proof; all I know for now is that he did poison the office.""But for what? He could have just killed him if he wanted." Brandon responded promptly. "I will avenge Don Soriano’s death at all costs!" Arturo arced fastidiously."Leave it to me or as well work with me like you did with my father," Brandon stretched out his hands to Arturo.Arturo laughed mockingly. "You must be joking, right?""I see, because you got married to Kimberly and somehow got Hailey on your side, you think you’re strong enough
AT THE JEWELRY STORE.Torillio was sitting on the couch with a vape in his hand. "She’s ignoring my calls; she’s new." "Is she really ready to work?" He puffed the smoke in circles."What's your plan, boss?" "Fight Brandon?" his men asked him."No Santiago" "This issue is different, whether I fight him or not. Time will tell." Torillio opened up the drape. "She is here. Let her in immediately."They welcomed Vanessa into his office. "Sit down!" Torrilio ordered anxiously. "Why weren't you picking up my call?""I’m sorry, I was in a…. It's complicated. I'm here now. She replied, stammeringly. "It's no problem. Your stupid brother will be joining us. We're sure he’ll meet us here.""Whats wrong? Were you crying?" Torillio asked Vanessa. Her eyes were heavy and red. "No," she said, sniffing heavily in her breath."Just get yourself in order; I hope you’ll function better that way!" Torillio frowned. He gave the wipes box to Vanessa. She wiped her face with it. Torillio held her face i
AT KIMBERLY’S APARTMENT."I know the perfect song for a mod like this Brandon," Kimberly went and turned on the stereo to an upbeat song; they wanted Brandon to strip for them just as Kimberly had promised. His punishment for humiliating her at the coffee café."Just stop all of these; I'd never do that!" Brandon remarked. He sat down on the couch next to Kimberly. "You don’t have a choice, my husband; it’s a must!" she snapped. Kimberly’s friend served them all some champagne, and she gave a glass to Brandon."You’re all talk, Kimberly," she hissed. Kimberly was annoyed. "Strip now or the deal is off; remember you still have three days to clear out everything that’s on you!" Kimberly threatened.Brandon laughed wildly as he drank from the glass. "Fine, I’d do what you want, but before that, I need to talk to Estrellia" Brandon said soothingly. He licked her ears sultrily with his tongue and kissed her on the nape of her neck.Kimberly blushed in a dire expression of her desire for hi
AT THE GLASS HOUSEUnlike every other day, the whole family was present, and they were waiting for up to an hour for Grandma Pliar. "Are you sure she ain’t dead?" Herveaux asked jokingly."Just shut up; you sound disgusting!" Olvido retorted. "Where is your woman? Is it all talk? Did she just use you?" Herveax asked mockingly."Mock me all you want! It's way better than all your failed plans!" Olvido reiterated. Gwendoyn had to settle in. Stephanie came in to meet them. "What's wrong? Does she know we are here?" Olvido asked harshly. "Grandma Pilar would meet you all on the terrace, and she said you all better be there on time!" Stephanie bowed and left, shoving aside all their questions and abuse.Grandma Pilar wanted to view the whole arena from where she sat. open to nature’s natural effects and beauty. "Have you called them?""Yes, Grandma Pilar, I did just now," she bowed and was about to leave. "Wait, Stephanie, you still have one more thing to do for me," she said. She moved
EMERGENCY."Why didn’t you answer my call, princess?" Torillio asked her softly. "Sorry, I was with my friends, and it was loud," Vanessa responded."Fredrick said you accepted my offer, but I wanted to hear it from you," Torillio said, puffing on his cigar.Vanessa stepped away from him. "Why are you moving that far?" he asked her absently. "The smoke," she said, sweeping her hands through the air."Are you asthmatic?" he asked her rousingly. "No, I just don’t smoke," she replied. Torillio stared at her, unimpressed. He crunched the cigarette and tossed it into the ashtray."I will be giving you detail about your work. "You will be by my side at every meeting and may well represent me if necessary," Torillio stated."Strictly business?" Vanessa asked with a grimace. "Hmm.. bold of you to assume, you should actually, but for now, Torillio isn’t interested," he poured some wine for himself."Are you allergic to drinking, too?" He asked Vanessa. "I never said I was allergic to anything!
THE FIVE WELCOME YOU.A dark stratum of arranged spots filled with humans wearing scary masks. Chanting insignificantly. Brandon seemed rather little, as they were all hanging from a four-meter-high strata."Your proof has been cleared, Cedrick Ramirez Soriano! "THE FIVE WELCOME YOU!" they chorused heinously. Brandon was called forward to receive his mask. They placed the mask on a glass platter. They also stained it with blood. "You ascended with blood and agreement; you will relinquish your reign with blood and agreement.""You have three days to decide; after that, you will never be able to leave the family."They all paused. Brandon was confused; he didn’t know what to say. Everything unfolded like some fictional drama that was far from reality. "Speak, Cedrick Ramirez Soriano!" the five commanded."I accept it; I don’t think I need anymore than three days to think about a thing," Brandon replied. "It’s the rules, and they must be followed." The five echoed."Fine, as you w
AT MADRIGAL'S APARTMENT.The sun was out and shining brightly. Marcellus was tracking the package, but according to him, it was on the company’s legal site. He ordered that they could start their journey. Madrigal looked around to see if Esmeralda had come out already, but she hadn’t. "I'll deal with that when I come back," he uttered. Estrellia deferred that she wanted to accompany Brandon. If anything happened to him. She would be held responsible. Madrigal had enough of her. She wasn't with her men, so she was alone. He went behind her and smacked her on the neck. She passed out. "Damn! Why would you do that?" Marcellus asked, tittering. "Problem solved, simply!" Nathalie yelled. She dragged her inside and tied her down."We can go now." They mounted the power bike and left. Madrigal took off at a high speed. He bent easily, like he was on a motorcycle race. They got to the location before the company. "We should hide, boss; when we see them passing, you’d come out." "Wear
