“What did you just say?” Eden asked Aldehard who was smiling mischievously, with blood that oozed from his lips.He chuckled calmly and took a step closer to Eden, peering piercingly into his eyes and holding no iota of guilt or remorse for what he had just said.“I said what I said! You both are fools!” He declared defiantly and immediately, Eliana turned to gaze at Eden.“It was happening under your very nose, yet you were so dumb to take note of it”, Aldehard declared and shook his head in disdain.“Laurel killed Osvaldo…she planned it. It was her plan right from the very beginning. This is a very rough game and it would surprise you to know that she achieved that plan with the help of someone else”, Aldehard said and took a pause.He looked at Eliana who was throwing dead glares across to him. Eden’s heart was beating heavily as he looked at Aldehard, waiting for him to complete what he was saying and drop the message.“It was Vincent!” Aldehard said and continued laughing aloud.
There was something unsettling about the whole situation and Eliana couldn’t help but feel uneasy.“I don’t feel good about everything. It feels as though something is wrong somewhere”, Eliana said to Eden who wasn’t willing to listen to what she had just said.“Please…let it go”, Eliana dropped while Eden scoffed and looked at her unbelievably.He couldn’t imagine that after everything they had gone through, she was suggesting that they leave their quest.“Would you prefer if Vincent lays his hands on the treaure first?” Eden asked as he walked closer to Eliana who lowered her eyes to the ground.Her head was swirling terribly and each time she made to think of the situation, the more worse she felt. She could swear that whosever she had seen back there was Aldehard, but there was no way he would be the one watching them.“Aldehard is on our side now. You said that yourself that day he saved you from the accident. Are you thinking otherwise now?” Eden asked Eliana and again, she kept
Silence rented the atmosphere as each of them stared at each other. Eden was still trying to solve the puzzle that was set before him, but each attempt he made to achieve that failed.“Osvaldo’s daughter?” He asked as he turned to look at Eliana who was also as shocked as he was.Eliana scoffed and gave the lady a questioning glare.“First, it was Osvaldo’s son and now his daughter?” Eliana asked as she shook her head negatively and stood to her feet to leave.It was beginning to look like a joke and she didn’t want to be a part of it.“I can show you an evidence”, the young lady said after which she dipped her hand into her bag and brought out a phone.“Slide through the gallery”, she said to Eliana who still had a massive look of doubt in her eyes. She turned to look at Eden who gestured for her to go ahead and do as the lady had said.Eliana sank into the chair and picked up the phone which she started scanning through. Her eyes widened in surprise when she saw series of pictures o
Eliana winced in pain hours into their journey. She held on to her stomach that was beginning to bleed as a result of the stress that they’ve been exposed to.It came from the place where Laurel had stabbed her some weeks ago. It was quite strange that almost every time, the injury tore open.“I’m sorry. You have to be patient right until we get to the town. There should be a doctor there”, Eden said as he caressed her cheeks lovingly in a bid to suppress the pain that she currently felt.Eliana took in a deep breath and nodded. Many things clouded her heart and she couldn’t help but break into quite sobs. Why was her life far from being perfect even if she has always strived for perfection?All her life, she usually imagined the type of woman she wanted to be. In her imaginations, she saw herself being a lovely mother to young children and having a home where they all come back to after their long day.That was the type of life she envisioned for herself. However, she got the direct
It was a moody day at the mansion. Eliana had suggested that they hold a memorial service for Osvaldo, to honour him and acknowledge him for all he did for them.Everyone at the house came out, clad in black and wearing solemn looks on their faces. Eden could see a well of tears in Eliana’s hands as he held her calmly and assured her me that everything was going to be okay.She took in a deep breath as the series of things she came across during her treaure hunt came back to her memories.“Do you think that he may still be alive?” She asked Eden who held her firmly and stared at her.He trailed off in his thoughts and after what seemed like ages, he finally shook his head negatively.“There is no way he would still be alive. I mean, you saw his body”, Eden reminded Eliana who quickly nodded her head in affirmation.He was right. She had seen his body that they she went out in search of clues of what might have happened to him.They lit candles one after the other after which the poure
Eliana walked up to Eden and together, they gazed at the young boy who was currently claiming to be Osvaldo’s son.Eden scoffed as he shook his head in disdain. It wasn’t surprising to see young boys who would come over to claim people as their fathers since they had nothing else to do.“This is not a place where you walk into to throw jokes. I would advice you to walk out of here before I get mad at you!” Eden yelled angrily while Eliana tried to calm him down.It was very strange to see such happening, especially when it wasn’t close to what they thought of or imagined.“Who’s your father, young boy?” Eliana asked and this made him to start laughing aloud. He gestured for some other men who were obviously hiding somewhere around the gate.The men were heavily built, with guns in their hands.Eden’s men made to strike, but Eliana signaled on them to hold on.The men walked over to the young boy who seemed to be their leader or master.“Tell them how old I am”, the young boy said to o
Aldehard jumped out of the bushes and grabbed her right until he took her out of the road. The trailer went past her with a full speed and that was when she realized that she would have been dead if he didn’t come to help.“Aldehard?” She asked herself for the hundredth time, staring at him intently and trusting to decipher how possible it was that he had come to save her.“Why did you save me?” Eliana asked Aldehard who was breathing heavily and looking towards the direction of the trailer.It was clear that whosoever it was driving that trailer had a mission to kill Eliana.“Do you have an idea of who it might be in that trailer?” Aldehard asked Eliana who was still gazing at him as though she have just seen a ghost.She gulped down hard and shook his head negatively while he scoffed and nodded. He wasn’t quite surprised to see her gazing at him in such manner.He was her core enemy and seeing that he had been the one to save her was definitely alarming.Eliana took a step backwards
Eliana returned back to the country after being sure that she had a grip of what the treasure entailed. She had the key that looked like what Eden wanted in her possession and that prompted her to return home to meet with him.She had a lot going through her mind, a lot of things to say to him and also, a lot of plans for Laurel. She knew that she had to think of what to do about Laurel, even if she was her sister and at such, promised to reveal everything to Eden who would help her out.Eden walked into the room to meet Eliana sitting on the couch and lost in thoughts. He had been at his company when he heard the news of her return. That caused him to head back to the house, even if he was barely done with what he was doing.“Eliana!” Eden called out in surprise as he walked over to her and pulled her into a warm hug.Eliana smiled at him and took in a deep breath. It’s been a rough couple of days in her life, but she was glad that Eden was fine and great.“I’m glad to see you again.
