I can’t believe it. She still has the audacity to act so innocent.
I look away from her, before I smile humourlessly in disbelief.
“ What is she saying Damien? ” Alice gasps, grabbing my attention.
I look back at her and notice her baffled expressions. Detaching my eyes from her, I glance at Damien who is now glaring at me like I have ruined something for him.
“ That’s what you are going to do? Pretend your husband didn’t kill our father? ” I chuckle, shaking my head, disbelief still coursing through my head.
“ You know what Alice…” I stop laughing and my expressions turn grave as I address her.
“ Just tell me what was your role in all this? ” I take a step forward, my unforgiving eyes switching between both of them.
“ Madison. I think you have a misunderstanding. We should sit down and talk it out. ” Alice replies
MADISON’S POVThreatening and challenging Damien Knight Castillo is one thing and really finding the way to Destroy him is entirely another thing. It’s impossible to think of something so good that he won’t be able to stop me.As I think about all ways I can make the police reopen the case, I go to Lincoln Villa finally.I stand outside my magnificent house, staring at it for at least an hour.So beautiful. The place before me, my home…is so so beautiful that it’s impossible to overlook the beauty and dive right into the horrific memories attached to this place.Shaking my head, I make my way inside. Memories whisper to me becoming horrifying voices in my head.Max is waiting for me in the living room. He looks after the house now as a loyal servant like before. I called him earlier and asked him to meet me in the living room so I can talk to him
MADISON'S POVI was back to that place again, my father’s study where he was teaching me how I was supposed to love my friend Damien if I wanted to be at the top.Damien. The one on the top. The heir of the biggest corporation. The most powerful around here.Damien and not Hayes and not anyone else.Just Damien. Damien was the top where I was supposed to reach.I was thinking about it again, the day I forced myself to look at him that way. I was fairly young, only 12 and I already knew that I will make Damien mine. He will be my King and I will be his Queen - the perfect match. No one will be able to come between us and if someone did, I will do what my father taught me. I will step down on the broken neck of the one coming between me and him and I will make it to him.I will always make it to him. To my Damien.But there was another one I could never forget. The complete opposite of us all. The only generous an
MADISON’S POVI am drowning in the blurry, dark water. But I try to stay afloat. My feet kick the water, unable to push me up. My arms flail around helplessly.Water fills my lungs, slowly, inch by inch. I can feel the burn in my body intensifying as I feel my body beginning to give up.‘ You have to win. If you fail, you die. ’ A cold whisper and then I am out of water, gasping desperately for air.I gasp and sit up instantly. My wild eyes move around the white room, trying to recall what has happened.Moving around, my eyes pause on the man sitting on the chair beside me. His face is placed in his palm, his elbow supported on the chair’s arm. His eyes are closed, his breathing even and his hair tousled.I gulp, seeing him sitting there and gradually everything hits my mind. MADISON’S POVI wait for Alice who arrives after an hour or so.She sits down on one of the couches in the living room while I sit opposite her.“ What happened to your face? ” That’s the first question she asks from me.I blink at her. Should I tell her? I wonder, but then…why should I tell her anything?“ Nothing.” I inhale sharply. “ What do you want to tell me? ”She realises I don’t want to tell her anything about myself so she presses her lips in a thin line and gives up on asking me stupid ass questions.“ I know you won’t believe me but… ” she starts when I cut her off.“ If you think I won’t believe you, then don’t bother telling me whatever you want to say. ” I shrug my shoulders nonchalantly.I fold my arms on my chest and shoot her a bo

MADISON’S POVI hate to admit this, but the truth Alice revealed to me had smacked me hard in the face. I am finding myself gasping for air when the reality sinks in after Alice leaves.I drop on the couch with the note still clutched in my right hand. I recognised my father’s handwriting and I know everything is true.I know he was a monster, but why does it still hurt? It doesn’t shock me like it was supposed to do but it hurts me…why?I stare at my right hand in a trance.Family. Love. Friendship. Everything is gone from my life and I am left all alone, but I think…this is a punishment fit for me.I shouldn’t find excuses for myself to feel self-pity. I am a horrible person, the daughter of a monster. It hurts in a new way every time I admit this to myself.Tears start sliding down my cheeks without my control as my body trembles
HAYES’ POVI suddenly feel the urge to go behind her, to see if she is fine. I don’t know why I am still like this.I swore to myself that I will never care about her again, I will never go behind her again, but here I am…Pushing the girl away and making my way out of the club.Cold air hits me as soon as I step outside and find her nowhere in sight. After looking for her everywhere and asking the guards about her, I realise she must have taken the backdoor.Stupid woman! Who takes the backdoor right into the alleyway in the middle of the night?I heave a heavy breath and make my way to the other side of the club which is the alleyway.I walk in silence, many thoughts running through my mind.When she saw me earlier, I almost thought she was jealous when I know it’s not possible. She doesn’t love me, she proved this on many occasions.Suddenly, my feet halt on their spot when I am
MADISON’S POVEverything is dark around me and it’s like I can still hear the whistle in this darkness.The sound haunts me and it makes me twist in the invisible restraints bounding me to the darkness.I gasp for air and blink my eyes open. Light blinds me and makes me close my eyes again.Everything hurts, even breathing hurts at this point.Forcing myself, I open my eyes once again. The burn in my eyes is sharp, but I am too scared to close my eyes.“ You are awake. ” The familiar voice and the familiar words give me a sense of deja vu.Inhaling deeply, I turn my head a little at him and find Hayes sitting on the chair placed beside the bed.I blink my eyes at him, unable to understand what’s happening for a moment.‘ Dad…’ I hear the whisper of a memory in my mind and my eyes turn wide.He was the
HAYES’ POVSomething is not right. My gut are screaming this at me for quite some time.Doctors came and checked up on Madison. Everything is alright with her and she will be discharged in a week or so.She fell asleep right after the doctors left and I have been watching her closely from that time.First of all, she hit herself in the face and then she ended up in the middle of the road, almost killing herself in the way.She has been repeating somethings lately. Someone broke in, I saw my father, something is not right…Things like that.I do agree with her on this. Something is not right, but it’s not what Madison thinks. I think she needs help and she needs a psychologist. But, it will be a real headache to convince her to see one.I breath in and out, my eyes fixed on her swollen eye. I never thought I would ever see Madison like this. She was str
