Amy eventually returned to NorthHill and she lodged in a two bedroom apartment. That was what she could afford at the moment. In fact, getting that apartment cost almost all the money she had been saving in her six years' work at the small city she had newly come from.
Since she had her degree, it shouldn't take her much effort to get a work here in NorthHill. Even if she met Callan by chance now, six years were enough time for her not to be affected by what had happened in the past between them.
There could be an high chance that he had already got married to his secretary. Amy ignored the thought about Callan and began to search for job opportunities online. She applied to as many company as she could.
She didn't want her children to have to starve for any reason, feeding six children at a time will sure cost a lot plus she assured them a better education here so she has to get them into a school as fast as she could.
When it was evening of the following day, she got an offer to resume work as a dental assistant at the hospital. Although the pay was a bit low, it was still fair compared to nothing. She hoped that she would get a better job offer from one of the other companies she applied to.
She resumed work the following day and started working hard, the dentist she was directly assisting was friendly and they had been getting along real quick. She didn't want her salary to be messed up for any reason so she was cautious in all she was doing.
On her third day of work, her boss sent for her and as soon she appeared before his desk, the man spoke, "You should be in the laboratory and ensure that all necessary kits are available at 2 pm today, a special person is coming for a teeth examination and I need you to be absolutely cautious, understand?"
"Understood, sir," Amy lowered her head politely before walking away.
By the time it was 2PM, Amy was already in the room with all necessary kits and couldn't wait to see whom this special person would be.
She suddenly began to hear commotion outside and she peeped through the window only to see about seven black jeeps parked and there was a Lamborghini in the middle of those jeeps. It was obvious that these six jeeps were escort to the whoever was inside the Lamborghini.
Crowds had gathered quickly and even many people were peeping through the window to see the person inside the Lamborghini.
Amy became even more curious, how special could this person be that his presence alone attracted this much crowd. Two men dressed in a black suit stood behind the door of the Lamborghini that opened by itself and a spender legs finds its way down before his body finally appeared.
The ray of the sun shone directly to his face and his appearance emitted nobility and elegance. He looked like someone from the royal family and he exudes so much power that anyone watching the moment could tell.
Amy could not behold his face very well but she wondered if the special man that was coming for teeth examination was this man? If he is, then she must be very careful around him. The last thing she wanted was to fall into any powerful man's trouble in NorthHill. All she wanted was to have enough money to take a good care of her children.
Soon, the door opened and Amy turned at once and when she saw her boss, she heaved a sigh of relief.
"Everything is prepared, right?" The dentist asked.
"Yes, sir. Sorry, I just saw a man step down from a Lamborghini, is he the one we would be attending to?" She questioned.
"That's right, he's the most powerful man in NorthHill and many people barely have the chances to see him that's why you see crowds around. Please ensure everything will go smoothly cause I heard he has high temper," the dentist said.
"Will this be your first time of working with him, sir?" Amy asked.
"That's right, and sincerely, I'm nervous. Let's just hope everything works well," he said and she further confirmed that she arranged everything well as she was supposed to.
Most powerful man in NorthHill? Behaving carelessly before that kind of person is just a suicide mission.
Soon, two burly men in suits appeared, one was carrying a briefcase while the other wasn't holding anything but they both looked very tall and intimidating, they weren't smiling at all.
A majestic presence filled the room and Amy's eyes fell on this powerful man quickly. He was tall and slender and looked extremely handsome. His elegance could be felt.
'His girlfriend must be lucky,' Amy thought.
"Welcome, sir," the dentist bowed and gestured for him to sit where he could be examined. He sat quietly and then the dentist started the examination on his teeth.
"Cotton forceps, please?" The dentist asked Amy while he was busy working. Amy was standing by and giving him all he needed as soon as she could but she couldn't find the cotton forceps.
Did she forgot to bring it? How could she be so careless?
"I...I forgot it, I'll go and get it now," she said and rushed out quickly. Gosh! How could she ever forget this?
Once she got it, she ran back quickly to the lab but to her surprise, she didn't see neither of the man nor his bodyguards, just the dentist.
With the cotton forceps in her hand, she asked in surprise, "where is he?"
The dentist handed over a letter to her and walked out without saying a word.
She furrowed her brow wondering what was inside the letter. She dropped the cotton forceps gently and saw that she had been fired. Just like that? Just for mistakenly forgetting an equipment.
It must be that 'special man' who ordered for her to be fired. Was he so mean and inconsiderate? Amy thought. Can't someone make a mistake?
She walked out of the lab and went to the dentist's office, she pleaded," sir, it was a mistake, please forgive me. I will never do that on purpose. I don't know how I could have forgotten it...please, I'll never do that again,"
"The man who gave order for you to be fired is not an ordinary man, whatever he says is the final. So if you want to beg anyone, go to him and plead," the dentist said and continued with his work.
Amy could tell that no amount of pleading can influence the dentist to go against this 'special man's' order.
She walked out and ran downstairs, hoping she could try her luck to speak with the 'special man' and explain to him that it was just her third day at work and for the sake of her children, she needs to continue working.
She could not see the man but saw about four burly men walking towards the Lamborghini. She could tell that someone was before them. No matter how mean this powerful man is, he must be reasonable and try to understand her.
She rushed towards the burly men and before they knew what was happening, she was already standing before the 'special man.' Only then could she see his face clearly. He had the same resemblance as her three boys. Coincidence, right?
The burly men ran towards her and wanted to take her away roughly from his presence but 'the special man' gestured for them to stop. They were all surprised.
Amy was stupefied and tongue-tied for a while that she got lost looking into his handsome face. She blinked and called her senses back when she realized that she was before the most powerful man in the city.
"Sir, please forgive me. This is my third day at work and I didn't know that I forget an equipment. I don't want to get fired, I'm really hardworking, please, sir," Amy pleaded sincerely.
The man just stared at her face indifferently and when he was not speaking for another thirty seconds, Amy got nervous and wondered if she had said something wrong, "I'm sorry if I said something what is wrong, sir." Amy thought it was best for her to just leave and accept her fate than to fall into this man's trouble.
His look was too dangerous and it felt like she was going to be swallowed, she was in trepidation and wanted to turn to leave but the man spoke," how dare you leave?"
Amy froze on the spot. His voice was like thunder and it sends so much shiver down her spine. Has she brought the problem she had been trying to avoid on herself now?
Amy's mouth shook instinctively as she managed to say something but all her words get stuck in her throat.
The 'special man' took a step further to the Lamborghini and said casually," throw this woman away."
Amy curled her two legs up on her bed and cried, she was sad and embarrassed after what happened today. Firstly she lost her job and secondly, she was thrown out of the man's presence. Amy disliked the man, and she knew he was an arrogant man. How dare she to challenge the most powerful man in NorthHill? Was she drunk? Where could she get a job now? All the companies she sent offer to were not get back to her. The door opened all of a sudden and Angel appeared, "mum!" She ran towards Amy before she could even finish cleaning her tears. She doesn't like to let the children see her crying. She believed that it will make them troubled, she eventually cleaned up all her tears and smiled. Angel asked with a troubled look," mum, what's wrong?" "Nothing at all, I'm just happy to have you all around me," Amy lied. "But we are never absent from you," Angel said. Before Amy could say another word, Queen and Debby walked in and climbed on the bed. Seeing their faces made Amy really h
While Amy was heading home, she realized that she had not got her kids any surprise gifts. They all understood her financial state and had never disturbed her for gifts. But today, she decided to surprise them. For Abe, she didn't want to think about him. He's not the CEO, then there is nothing that he could do to her. She was not scared of him at all, instead, she detest him for the kind of man he already projected himself to be. How can he met someone for the first time and he immediately showing her clear sign of lust and shows how irresponsible he was? Amy stopped by at the mall and as soon she walked in, she saw a slap land an an old man's cheek. "What!" She exclaimed. She walked towards the crowds of people gathered around there and smuggled herself through the crowd until she got to where the old man was. The burly man who slapped the old man was dressed in suit and there were other men in suit around there. Amy challenged him," how dare you slap this old man? Did you
Both of them were surprised, they never expected to meet again expecially not in a situation like this. Amy's heart began to thump and she wished the land could swallow her up at this moment. This man had warned her not to show up before him again and that the next time she did, he would destroy her. Why was fate trying to punish her by bringing her to the attention of this man? "You dared to appear before me again, you cunny woman," the most powerful man in NorthHill, Broderick Alessandro, said with a dangerous look. Amy's mouth shiver on its own and she shook her head, "I... I never knew that you were the CEO, sir. I..." She swallowed hardly, "I...never knew." Broderick didn't believe in her at all. There was no one who didn't know that the CEO of Alessandro's corporation was him. This woman even had the gut to lie to his face. He stood from his seat and once Amy saw him stand to his feet, her heart thumped in fear and she stood still, thinking should she run away? Oh gosh
"Please! I wasn't appearing before you on purpose and I apologize sincerely for that night, please forgive me," she pleaded.There was a long moment of silence, anyone close to Amy at this time would literally hear her heartbeat. It was thumping so heavily that it felt like her heart was ripping apart. She didn't want this fierce looking man to pounce on her.If he pounced in her, what could she do? She started it six years ago by pouncing on him, she hoped earnestly that he would change his mind. She just wanted to leave this office and run as fast as her leg could take her from this company.He walked towards her then suddenly turned to his seat and sat, "leave."Leave? Amy thought that she probably didn't hear the right word. Did he say 'leave?' He was telling her to leave?She began to walk out slowly hoping that she was acting out on the right word, she twisted the knob and the door gave way.Oh her g
Amy wondered who could be knocking, she was not expecting any visitor and had not made any friend in this neighborhood. She stood nevertheless and walked towards the door, when she opened it, she saw a tall woman standing by the door."Amy!" The woman screamed.Amy furrowed her brow when she eventually recognized whom the woman was," Leola!"The two women hugged themselves dearly and Amy quickly let her in, Leola was Amy's roommate in the university. Through out her four years in the university, they both lived in the same room but they lost contact somehow after graduating from the university."How did you get to know where I stay?" Amy asked, still mesmerizing in the happiness that she met her old friend again."I didn't, I came here to apologize for what my son did, he didn't allow his friends play ball with him and I think that's selfish," she said," wait, are the three boys yours?""Yes, they are," Am
"Please, spare me this time," Amy pleaded even further. Eventhough she knew that pleading at this moment was too risky but if she agreed to do this, he would confirm his wrong perception of her. She was never that type of woman, a slut, a prostitute, that wasn't her.His phone rang at that moment, his attention then drifted from Amy who was kneeling before him and fell on the phone that was ringing. He took one more look at Amy and then walked over to his phone.He picked it and seeing whom the caller ID was, he sat and answered it, the caller was the only one who can have the gut to call him at this hour."Hello son, " the voice of an elderly woman came through.He didn't want to have conversation with his mother before a stranger, "out!" He declared and Amy stood quickly. The call saved her, she quickly walked out.Oh gosh! A narrow escape again! She had become so emotionally destabilized that she couldn't stay anoth
Amy wanted to scream but the hand covered her mouth in a quick pace, she calmed and tried to look at the person's face, seeing that this person was Callan, she pushed him away angrily, "why did you drawl me here?" She walked out of the dark space and shot him a disgusting look."Don't pretend like you don't miss me," Callan smirked."Disgusting. After six years, did you still think I'll not have get over what happened?" She asked."It's not my fault that you are barren," Carren scoffed," and...your pretense about Broderick being your hubby is just a joke, you think I don't know? Broderick and I are childhood friends and we use to be best of friends but over the years, we have grown apart and are not in good terms anymore. Nevertheless, I still know many things about him. You of all people can never be Broderick's taste," Callan said."Either I'm his taste or not, can I know why you are concerned? You are with your sec
Carlton sighed, he looked at his daughter in a pityful manner and he could tell that she was going through a lot, he can't tell what she was going through at the moment precisely but he discerned it."Can you tell me how you have been? I know we have been in distance with eachother but I still keep track of you, last thing I knew about you was that you and your husband divorced six years ago?" Carlton asked."I'm fine. I'm loosing my patience and I will just walk out now, I don't want to be rude so please go straight to the point," Amy said, trying not to let out her anger and pain.Carlton of course understood the reason for the anger of her daughter towards him, he went straight to the point, "A woman from a rich and powerful family approached me a long time ago when her husband's company was almost going bankrupt and although I'm not half as rich as them, I have what it takes to help them at that moment."He continued," I realiz
