Back at Nate’s house, Alex’s mind was spinning as he was on the phone with Ares. What could he possibly want with him?
“What kind of deal?” he asked.
Alex found out where Jacob’s girlfriend was living and where she worked. He didn’t want to betray him and hand him over to Ares, but he was willing to do anything to save Saoirse. It had already been a few days since he took her.Sorry, Jacob, your time is coming into an end,he thought. He called Ares.“I have information on Jacob’s girlfriend. I will get you her work address. But first, I want to speak to Suri,” Alex said grimly. “What do you think you are doing here? And what did you see?” Ares asked again.Xavier exhaled and grinned. “Are you asking me if I saw that cute little bird you’ve been keeping here, then yeah. I saw her. You got a good taste, Mate,” he winked.“Where is she? If you did something to her I swear to God…” Ares glared at him.“I didn’t do anything to her! Well…I really wanted to but she is one slippery bitch,” Xavier said irritably.

Saoirse gasped as she saw Xavier sprawled across the floor with his throat split open.“Don’t look,” Ares said and pushed her face on his shoulder while carrying her to the other room.“D…did you kill him? Why?” she asked.“Don’t worry about it,” he said gruffly. Saoirse didn’t push him.
Alex was surprised to see Saoirse in a good mood even after being kidnapped for so long. Maybe Ares did take good care of her. He sighed in relief. He won’t let her out of his sight again. “Are you sure you are okay? He didn’t hurt you?” Alex looked at her with concern. “I’m fine. Big bro forced me to eat just like you did,” she giggled.Alex looked confused. &ldqu
One month later...Alex bought a house in Madeira. It was a small island in Portugal which means their house will be right by the beach. He wanted Saoirse to be near the ocean just like she always wanted. He also picked the place as it was quiet and away from all the crimes and his enemies. Saoirse would be able to live peacefully without being involved in his messed-up crime-filled life. All he wanted was to make her happy.They gathered around alongside old friends at Nate's house f
On his wedding day, Alex anxiously waited for Saoirse to walk down the aisle. Several thoughts circulated in his head. What if she changes her mind? What if she decided she didn't want to marry a murderer and a criminal like him?You are being stupid, Alexander. That girl is crazy about you,he thought to himself. Fuck...why was he so damn nervous?"Why do you look like you are about to shit your pants?" Nate remarked."Shut up bro, I feel fine," Alex said irritably."Sure you are. What, you think she is gonna pull a runaway bride on you and run for the hill? I wouldn't blame her if she does," Nate chuckled."How did you know that's what I was thinking?
