Tonya is finally going to go home. After a few months of hiding away in an orphanage, she is finally going back home to her family. Duke being too busy with the new government, won't be able to take her home. Eden is given this task and she is the best option given that Tonya is closest to her. So with a huge number of military escorts, they are on their way to Padre island. Eden is sitting beside Tonya in the private plane. Tonya is asleep beside her and she has her head on Eden's lap. Eden gently strokes her head as she keeps her eyes on the white clouds. She has recovered over the week, but she never attended Ansel's burial. The plane has a limited number of passengers, but it's full. She and Tonya are the only civilians here and Eden feels safe. None of the soldiers here are corrupt, all the corrupt ones have been sacked and it was like a cleansing for the whole army. The pilot soon announces that the plane is getting ready to land, and they have come to their destinat
Mister Jimmy looks scared, but he manages to keep himself composed. Eden still has the gun pressed on his head. " That's a very complicated question, do you want to sit down?" He offers. "No." She grunts. " Get talking."He glances over to his son's wife who is totally horrified. "I'm going to call the police!" She screams as if Eden is supposed to scare off the police. " Yeah, you do that." Eden scoffs. " Your father-in-law is supposed to be in jail anyway." " Miss Eden, if you can just tell me what this is about." He begs. " We don't have to settle it this way." " You heard my question, start to answer!" She fires at him, she is losing her patience little by little. "Okay, okay, okay." He gulps down the air. He looks at his son's wife and gives her a nod. She reluctantly goes up the stairs and they are left alone. She lowers the gun and he breathes out in relief. " I'm not dropping this for too long if you don't start talking." He nods and adjusts his seat. " Miss Eden
Now that he has sent the gun in her hand he knows that she isn't joking. His hands are raised in surrender as he backs away into his seat, the one he was sitting on. Eden has managed to cut the tape around her hands and now she is the one with the gun. " You know that the other guy is just outside, right?" He reminds her. " I could whistle right now and you are done for."" Go ahead, do it." She dares, poking the gun against his forehead. " If I don't blow your fucking brains out." He laughs, he behaves so much like Ansel that it kind of creeps her out. Eden has her eyes on him and her ears opened to listen whenever someone walks in. Felix's eyes are boring through her, he is like reading through what is going through her mind. " I get it now." He sounds defeated. " You are a lot smarter than we thought."Eden tilts her head, it's now her turn to smile at him. " It took you a while to get it right, didn't you?" She mocks. " I see what's going on here." He nods. " Your brother
Eden is on the ground, her eyes are shut and she has no consciousness of what has happened to her. The one who has hit her looks up as Ansel stares at him. " I'm sorry, boss." He apologizes. " She was going to cause trouble for us."The other one appears from the front door, he looks at his partner. " It's a good thing you got her when you did, Nate." He nods at him. He who she just entered now is Felix. He has worked for Ansel for a long time and even with his father before. He is close to Ansel and unlike the rest, he has a way to get Ansel to listen to him. " Felix, you got him up to it?" Ansel turns to him, not very happy. " I told you I was going to handle it."" I'm sorry, but you could have taken care of her if you wanted a long time ago." Felix looks down at her. " The fact that she is still alive is enough to tell that you needed a push."He looks at Nate, who looks as if Ansel is going to kill him for what he has done. " Tie her up with duct tape." He instructs. " The
**BREAKING NEWS**** The whole country is in a state of confusion as much evidence has been released against the president and some members of the government and top military. He has been forced to resign and the vice president has just been sworn in.**** Many arrests have been made to link some top businessmen that have been in dubious dealings with the president. **Eden is watching the news from her bed. She takes the remote and turns the volume even higher, she wants to hear all she can. Duke wasn't kidding when she told him that there will be a cleansing. It has been just a few days later and it has come to pass just as he had promised her. She sits in her bed, biting her nails as she tries to concentrate on the images on the screen and what they are saying. ** The new president, as an act of transparency, has released the names of those arrested.**Eden holds her breath as the names appear on the screen. The military officers first, there are a whole lot of them, including
Eden can't believe that this is about to happen. It feels like she has just heard that the rapture is about to come. " When was this decided?" She asks Logan. " I don't know. " He answers truthfully. " Duke just told me what I have told you and that's all I know."Her heart is going crazy. Yes, she wants for the evil among Mafia to end, but she doesn't want Ansel to go down with them. " I have to tell Ansel." She says to herself. " I can't let him fall with the rest."She is already walking away when Logan catches her hand and stops her. "I'm sorry, I can't let you do that." He apologizes. " So you expect me to stand still and watch Ansel get destroyed?" She is agitated. " Let go of me!" She is pulling attention towards them and he has no choice but to pull her to a secret part of the building. She shrugs him off violently. "Listen to me, you have to listen to me." He implores her. " We both should be grateful that Duke saved us from getting caught in the net. Telling Ansel
He was going to be here tonight, she knew and had prepared for that. He has been ignoring her all these weeks, but she hasn't done anything to get his attention. She didn't come here with the intent to get to speak to him, no she came for the meeting and she was going to leave afterward. Now he has entered the room with a lady she has never seen, and she is trying her best to keep cool with it. It would have been better if that was just it, but that lady was having her hands all over him and she started to find it hard to breathe. She didn't take herself to be a very hard kind of person, who gets jealous easily, but here it is. She struggles not to let her jealousy show as he walks to the table. He has a blank look on his face and acts as if Eden is not in her seat. The lady on the other hand seems to be so drilled that she can't stop smiling, it's like this is the best thing that has ever happened to her, this was the sole reason for her existence and coming into this world.
After a long drive, Duke returns home. It's kind of a relief because he is living alone, without those soldiers around to scare him anymore and it comes in quite handy now that he has his own tiny family. He steps out of the car with the crunchies and walks to the house. " Hello, I'm home." He announces loudly. Melody appears from the kitchen with a spatula in her hand and an exhausted look on her face. " Oh God, your back." She wipes sweat from her eyebrow. " Didn't know you would be back so quickly."" I had luck on my side, I found it." He lifts it up for her to see and her face lights up in delight. They walk towards each other and he gives it to her as she places a kiss on the side of his cheek. That was a tease, she kisses him on his lips and he giggles, he is delighted. " I would go out and scavenge for other crunchies if you would kiss me again." She laughs, he is funny when he wants to be. "Oh, I won't do that to my husband." She shakes her head. " But here is anot
