“I don't want to...” I plead under my breath.
I just turned my back and swiveled my head away from them.
What exactly do they want, — especially Liam? Why does he feel the need to show me how he treats his girlfriend all the time?
“If I told you to watch, you must watch. Otherwise, I'll bind your hands and force you to keep an eye on us. ” His frigid tones have returned, seeming to invade my body and command my spirit to obey.
“W-Why...? Please… Don't do this to me... ” I could feel my eyes welling up with tears and my chest tightening as I begged.
I grabbed my chest to keep my breathing under control as it became heavier once more. I'd given up hope that they'd show me some mercy, so I just closed my eyes firmly and waited for them to finish whatever they were doing.
I felt heavy footsteps on my back so I turned to face who it was.
''Aaa!'' I let out a small scream when Liam snatched my arm.
I tried to sneak away, hopi
"The woman you saw earlier, that's Eureka Villareal," Sybil explained, and I just nodded. “First and foremost, you should be aware that the two most powerful families in Denmark are embroiled in a bitter feud. They are great rivals. The Spencers are leading the power, energy, winery, oil, and other industries. And the Villareals, who are at the forefront of technology and aircraft.” Sybil even used his fingers to convey the story, as though he was taking it very seriously. I couldn't respond because I was still chewing on the bacon, so I just nodded. There was plenty of food, but only Sybil and I sat down to eat. There was a long table where we ate dinner with Liam’s parents last night. On one side, there is an expansive table with a wide selection of dishes. Even though it was extremely early, I felt as if I had eaten at its expensive buffet. “You already recognize Eureka because you saw her at the wedding, didn't you?” I nodded once
Crystal POV "Fix yourself," I took another look at what I am wearing. "But, I'm already dressed nicely?" I boasted, returning my gaze to my white pantsuit. It embraces my entire body so it enhances my body's curves. This outfit does not belong to me though; it was just delivered to our room. And it even includes an extravagant gold necklace and earrings, which I'm supposed to wear as well. “I'm talking about your behavior. If possible, refrain from speaking when you don't have to.'' I was unable to respond when he stepped out of the car. I want to talk to him about what happened last night... but I am afraid of how he will react. I simply followed behind Liam when he walked into the building, as he had ordered. I was a little terrified when we were surrounded by four armed men in suits, until I realized Liam was wealthy and, of course, has bodyguards. Employees were simultaneously bowing when Liam passed
Unknown Number: [Please come down for a minute; I will wait here till my legs are broken as long as you don’t show up.] “Pfft.” His SMS message made me chuckle. Okay, it might be better to go down first and see him; after all, it might take some time for them to talk to that Sam in the office, and if I stay there, I probably be a nuisance. Liam doesn’t even want me to say anything. So what else can I do? My feet began strolling towards the elevator to get down for a moment. I put up my phone and saved the unknown number and named it ‘mushroom’ on my contacts. What was the name of that guy again? I’ll just call him a mushroom for now. After all, he was always random and appeared at the most inconvenient times. “Crystal!” he exclaims with great joy when he sees me. So this is how it feels when someone is genuinely happy whenever they see you. This wa
“HELP!! OH MY GOD!! I AM GETTING ROBBED!!” I screamed at the top of my lungs, begging for help. I yank my hand away from his firm grip, but he refuses to let go. “HELP! HE’S A THIEF!!” I begged even more loudly. My gaze was drawn to Liam as he exited the building. “LIAM, HELP!!!” I understand we’re in a tough state right now, but this isn’t the time to dwell on grudges. When Liam heard my shrieks for help, he dashed toward us, leaving me to strive for my freedom. “Blade! Crystal! What the hell is going on here?’’ He yelled at us and pulled Blade into his chest to get his hand out of my arm. “What are you doing!” He glared at Blade, but he didn’t answer and just bent down in front of Liam. Is he going to deny what he did? “HE’S TRYING TO TAKE MY WATCH!” I screeched. “Sir, I noticed something suspicious on Ms. Crystal’s wristwatch.” He responded as his gaze was fixed on the floor, not raisin
“Mr. and Mrs. Spencer, we’re here.” I brushed away my tears as I heard Blade speak. “Where are we?’’ I peered out the window to see where we had come to a halt. Suddenly, the reporters invaded the car we are riding in. Liam began to get out, but I remained perplexed and unsure of what to do. They’ve set up their deluge cameras once more. And then there are the flashes, which completely blind me in a matter of seconds. I’m terrified to be shown in public again... I’m tired enough of those hurtful comments. I can feel Blade staring at me from the mirror. “Why did we stop here? And why are the reporters came to see us? ” “Happy Birthday.” He gave me a meaningful grin. I was so flabbergasted that I couldn’t respond to him. Also, because the road we had driven earlier seemed familiar, I assumed we were going home to Liam’s house. “Get out of there and wipe your tears away. Do not show a
“What are you doing..?” I struggled to avoid leaning against the wall, but it was useless. Blade simply pushed me back. “Ouch!” I screamed, my back slamming against the wall so hard that it seemed like I’d shattered a bone. I pushed him with both hands with all my strength, even though I knew it wouldn’t move his muscular body. “What do you want!?” “I will help you.” “What?” “I overheard your entire conversation earlier. I’ll help you to be like by Liam.” I repeatedly blinked my eyes and even poked my ear with my finger since it looked like what I was hearing was vague. “What do you mean..?” “Just trust me.” “But, Blade, why would you help me? What will you get in return?” One of the things I’ve learned throughout my life is that everything has a replacement. People who become suddenly kind for no apparent reason should be suspected, as they are the most likely enem
“Crystal, I thought you need Liam to like you?” “Yeah?” “Well, if you do that, he won’t appreciate you.” “What do you mean? Liam loves Pororo and he- ‘’ I covered my mouth as soon as Liam’s most protected secret spilled out. ‘’I know, but if you continue to pay attention to him, he will never be interested in you.’’ He withdrew his gaze from me and swung a bit to face the other way. My brain couldn’t seem to absorb what he wanted to convey. I was going to say something else when Blade interrupted me. “Have you eaten?” He wasn’t looking at me, and his gaze was just a little too far away. Following his eyes, I discovered he was staring directly at a Shawarma food stall. “If you don’t quit beaming, it’ll melt.” I saw him gulped before he turned to me. I laughed a bit at him again because he looked like a child who wanted to go to
He put his hands on both his ears and hold them.My pizza dropped when he suddenly move up and down, squatting.‘’One... Two… One… Two ... One… ‘’ He said with each lift he went.‘’Are you serious you’re going to do that in this place? ‘’‘’One… Two… One… ‘’ This person doesn’t seem to hear anything and is seriously working out. I look around the restaurant, and I’m not surprised they were all looking in our direction.Oh my gosh, this is so embarrassing.I returned my eyes to Blade who’s still didn’t stop what he’s doing regardless of getting everyone’s attention.‘’Hey... stop it! ‘’ I whispered loudly as I cover my face with my hand. “Blade!”‘’Shhh Crystal... One… Two&hel
