“We're sorry it took that long."Edward shook his head, smiling widely, "Still that was quite a heist.""A human heist, if that is actually a thing," Ace joined."Food? Anyone?" I asked when the seatbelt lights turned off."I'm good," Edward smiled before he started to look out the window, he was admiring the clouds. I could not blame the guy; he had been locked up in that room for ten years. It was better to leave him alone for a little while."I'll join you," Ace immediately stood up and followed me to the tail of the plane.The last time we got in this plane the fridge was filled with food but right now, if it was even possible, there was more food in it. It had about three tubs of ice cream, a variety of yogurt, cookies, sodas, boxes of iced tea drinks, candies, gummy bears, and others I could not even name."Do you think Blake always keeps a stash of food here?" I asked."Prob
Ace looked like he just got through hell.His face was bloodied and bruised, his hair was all over his forehead, sweaty and sticky. He had a gun on his right hand and his left was bald in a fist. There was a gash on the top of his left eyebrow, dried blood stained it.His white shirt was dirtied, blood in some places, and shoe marks as well. There was a knife cut on his left chest, but it did not seem deep because the blood seeping through had already dried up as well. I could feel that his lower body was equally messed up, but his jeans had covered it well."Ace," I said but it came out as a croak.He scanned me with concern but in a blink of an eye, it turned into a bloodshot glare. He scowled at Mr. Macklet who was staring at him in disbelief."I dare you to fucking kick her again," he aimed the gun straight at Mr. Macklet and his guards stood in front of him protectingly."If you pull the
The snow welcomed me on the day I was finally released.My parents did not want to let me go until I was fully recovered so I had to stay for a total of two weeks in the hospital. They had wanted me to stay for one more week, but I had been calling my dad, complaining, so they decided to let me go. On top of that, they did not allow me to handle any sort of work, they postponed all my projects.Who wouldn't be mad in such a situation?I rolled down the car window and took a deep breath despite the cold. Chase was the one driving and Ace was at the shotgun seat, I had the back all to myself."Put that down," Ace ordered.Both of them were so protective of me throughout the whole way, it was as if at any second, another gunner would come and shoot me, but I knew nothing like that would happen again."You guys are so tense," I laughed at the two of them, leaving the car window open.
“Mr. Juarez, what are your thoughts on marrying my only daughter, Cana?""Sir, Pardon?" my eyes widened at Mr. Vandia, my employer.Tonight, was the 62nd annual anniversary of the Vandia Corporation. I became a registered surgeon today and they had just announced it to everyone at the party. Right after I got off the stage, Mr. Juarez invited me to seat with him and his wife.I had not said a single word when Mr. Vandia suddenly asked that question. I was left stunned while the couple stared at me widely, most likely hoping for a positive answer.Almost four years passed, and I was never able to forget Athena Calleen Vandia. I tried to date other women, I tried to drink her away, I tried to overwork myself but none of it helped in taking her off my head. As if that was not enough, now, I was being offered to marry her.When Mr. Vandia realized I was speechless, he spoke again, "We want you to take over the com
If it was not for Scion University I would not have met Athena Calleen Vandia.Then again, if it were not for the same university, I would not have broken up with her nor operate on her. A lot of things would not have happened.I wouldn't have had two kids sitting on my lap.I wouldn't have such a beautiful wife.I wouldn't have such a great family."Babe, Edward said he is coming over today, it's his freedom anniversary," Cana called out behind one of the huge blankets. It was Sunday, family day, and as usual, we spent our morning at our backyard where Cana would be hanging out clothes. The maids could have done it but when she was free, she always insisted on doing some of the house chores."Uncle Edward is coming over?" Andrea smiled."Is he? Is he?" Adeline jumped down from my lap.The twins smiled widely at me, they were only turning four next year, yet they could speak so fluentl
