"Mam, there is some issue with the auction." Jane said as she came running towards that room.
"What went wrong now?" Amy asked and was a little shocked cause everything was going pretty perfectly so far.
Jane hesitated after seeing Chris sitting in her lap. The orders were not to speak anything in front of him.
"Oh, just speak." Chris said in frustration. He was getting excited to know what she was talking about. Amy glared at him.
"Don't." She said in a stern voice, and he went quiet. Amy got up and patted his head, making him smile the next second.
Amy looked at Jane and nodded, asking her to speak further.
"Uh...oh..." Jane said and walked towards her.
"One of our partners for the auction..." She said, and she showed her a photo of that guy on her tab.
"He is the biggest shareholder... um... he ran away."
"How? You guys were so sure that everythng was working out well." Amy said and
"Wow!" A girl exclaimed in awe. Her eyes were wide open, and her jaw dropped as she looked at someone in admiration. A similar thing had happened to everyone around her.It was the main airport in City B. Everyone present there seemed to be captivated by that one person; they were unable to take their eyes off her.A crowd gathered on both sides, and in the center stood the queen. She wore a l
Amy smiled as Mathew left the place and glanced at her assistants."Tie him." She ordered them.Aaron and Theo nodded and walked up to him at once. They picked him from the floor forcefully and tied him to a chair with ropes, tight enough to leave marks for days. After that, the three stood in a corner and didn't say a word."Well, hello there." She sat on the chair in front of him. He didn't say anything but was terrified to death. "Nice to see you again." She smiled softly, a devil's smile.He looked up but didn't dare to look into her eyes, so he immediately looked away."I was never expecting to meet the richest businessman this way. The guy I had the most expectations from." She said as she crossed her legs and laid back. She stared into his nervous eyes; only anger was visible in hers."I...I'm sorry." He mumbled and was on the verge of tears. He lowered his head down and kept staring at the ground and regretted everything
"Take the boy." The guy commanded. He sat in the back seat, a cigarette in his hand, which filled the whole car with smoke, almost making the others choke. He wore a hat and looked shady, like a gangster from the 90s.He was Loren, the head of the Lion gang. They were Mathew's sworn enemies and tried to ruin their business all the time but rarely succeeded. He recently got to know that Mathew was making a trade with this girl from A city. As always, he was now trying to ruin it by finding her weakness, her son.Their cars were parked at a distance from where Sam and Chris were standing. A guy sitting in the passenger seat was keeping an eye on them while the other two were discussing the plan, making guesses how they could possibly kidnap the child. They knew that two bodyguards were secretly following the child and were thus planning to distract them.Loren was getting curious about this girl now; he had never seen someone so secretive. They tried to l
"Amy..." Aaron said and rushed to hold her cause her legs went weak. She was always afraid to see that sight again in her life, but here it was. She fell on her knees.Chris was helping Sam get up, but soon, he noticed Amy and how weak she was at that point. He knew she was reminded of her past. He dropped the gun and rushed towards her at that very second."Mom!" He said and hugged her tightly. She hugged him back, her hands trembling and eyes filled with tears cause her biggest fear came true. She felt like she failed to protect him well."I'm okay...don't worry." Chris caressed her back. He knew what she was going through; he was the only one who knew her deepest secrets.Sam was shocked to see her this weak. He had expected her to be the strongest person but seeing that made him realize that they all also and their weaknesses, and mostly, they had to pretend to be strong to save ourselves from this heartless world.He felt like cryi
Amy inched closer to him; she smiled mischievously, and then suddenly, she flicked his forehead."Ow!" He cried in pain as he snapped back to reality."Are you even listening to yourself?" She asked him."I don't know." He said and lowered his head; he looked like an abandoned puppy."Just say if you have any questions, I won't kill you for that." She said all of a sudden, as she was looking through the first aid kit.He smiled brightly again on hearing her words. She picked a pair of gloves and started wearing them."Really?" He beamed with light. She nodded as she got everything prepared. Her expressions were quite neutral; she wasn't excited or anything like him."You think I'll joke." She asked him calmly as she looked at him. He shook his head like a child, which made her smile cause she was reminded of Chris. They both did seem a lot similar, except the fact that Chris seemed to be braver than him.
They were at the airport again, on their way back to City A. Chris was standing beside Amy and, as usual, talking nonstop. But the only difference this time was that he was holding someone else's hand as well. It was Sam's. And surprisingly, Amy didn't mind that, even when Chris was mostly talking to him instead of her."Summie, should I really be here?" Sam asked her in a low voice. He was starting to have a feeling that he didn't belong there. Everyone seemed so different from him and he just couldn't fit in."Yeah, you are where you need to be and where I want you to be." She said with a soft smile. That simple gesture of hers was enough to relieve his tension, and he started smiling again, talking to Chris in a cheerful tone.Amy gestured to the guards, and they stood beside both Sam and Chris while Amy started walking in front of them. She held a document in her hand and was checking that."She's always like that. Ac
A day passed and it was the day of the auction, the big day they all were waiting for. They all were nervous except for Amy, she was as calm as always, not bothered by the ruckus that was created outside.The whole resort was booked for the auction, all the famous businessmen were present there and the media stood outside waiting for them to get out. But that wasn't the only thing they were curious about, it was the organizers of the auction.No one knew who had organized the auction. That scene seemed familiar; it was something the Astley family used to do. But nothing was clear then. They weren't expecting the Astley family to be back, cause if they did the world would have turned upside down already. The AB organization would have vanished from the underworld by them.Although all those businessmen and such organizations pretended to be good people in front of the world, people still had a clue about it. But no one dared speak up against the underworld organi
"You haven't changed at all huh?" Amy tilted her head a little as her eyes fixed at a particular figure walking inside the resort. "My fiance." She said and everyone in that security room froze. No one was supposed to say that. So how could she?"A...Amy...?" Jane asked hesitantly, not sure what to ask her. They all were staring at her confused and scared of what would happen now that she brought up the past.Amy didn't answer, her gaze was fixed at the same place, lips clenched tightly and eyes colder than usual. They could tell that she was holding herself back from killing them, the people who destroyed her life. Cause it wasn't the right time yet. She had to make them pay for what they had done to her and to her family.Sam was staring at her, his face held a painful look but his emotions were messed up at that point. He couldn't understand himself. He was feeling betrayed after hearing her words, not able to understand his own feelings."I'm going ou
