Noah puts Averill gently inside his car. "Should we go to the hospital?" He asked with soft tone. Averill nodded, "He was brought to your uncle's hospital," She replied with a weak voice and leaned on her seat.Noah smiled at her and went to the driver's seat. He does not want anything with Paulo and he's having a lot of wuestions about why the two are together at that time but he kept his mouth shut."Noah, I met him about Yanna," Averill broke the silence of the ride. Noah glanced at her while focusing his gaze on the road.It is a rare occasion that Averill is mentioning Yanna and talk it with Paulo? 'Why?'Noah stayed silent though, he's just waiting on what Averill will tell him."I saw her with John Hulson going inside a hotel," Averill carefully tell him the details. "Why are you telling him that?" He asked though he's not that stupid not to know. He's having his doubts but he likes Yanna too much that he's putting blind eyes."Yanna was in a relationship with him when she met
"Heartless? She's not even my real wife,""You married her,""Because she was carrying my child!" Noah stood up, feeling agitated with how his uncle is cornering him. "Did you... did you even saw her grieving for Damien?"Noah froze in his place, he sits up again. He did. He remembered seeing her. Noah looked at his wrist and rubbed his hand against it. 'But she moved on,' Noah looked at Luis and smiled. "I am a grown up, uncle. I am no longer the Noah that you used to carry around,""You sure did get bigger; not that you matured though," he chuckled. "Help Averill,""Why do you like her? Even Mom and her brother. I think Dad likes her too,""What is there not to like? Let me ask you, why don't you like her?""Because of what she did to Yanna thirteen years ago,""What are you talking about?""Uncle, she was the reason why Yanna was kidnapped along with me," Noah never told this to anyone. It was something Yanna asked him not to tell because she wanted to protect her younger sister.
"Break up?! Are you hearing yourself, Paulo?! What the hell did Averill tell you? Are you seriously believing her instead of me?!" Yanna hysterically asked, pulling herself away from him.Paulo looked away. It was a decision he thought through while on his way to the hospital. He's scared. He's afraid that she would easily agree to break up with him because she does not love him anymore.'You still love me, right? But why are you lying, Yanna?'"Paulo," Yanna went near him and caress his cheek. "I love you," Paulo did not reply. Yanna sighed and hugged his head. "I love you, okay? I don't know what Averill told you but she's lying. You know her... she's a lying b*tch who will do everything to get on my way,"Yanna released Paulo from the hug and kissed him on the lips. "I love you, baby,""I love you too," Paulo kissed her back and caressed her cheek gently, claiming every side of her lips.***"What are you doing here?""What happened?""I asked you first,""Tsk," Kieffer stood up an
When William heard of the situation, he rushed to the hospital along with Liam. Isabella was going to follow them after the meeting that she was holding with some businesswomen."Oh god. What the hell happened, Avi?" Liam asked, checking every corner of Averill. When he saw her wrist, his face turned as pale as a paper and warm tears started pouring down his cheeks.'Again, you hurt yourself again,' he wants to scold Averill but seeing how weak looking she is. Liam could only hug her tight."I have been a bad brother," Liam caressed her hair, "I apologize for everything, Averill. Brother will always be here for you, alright?"Seeing the two of them, William cleared his throat and went to the other side of the bed. Averill slowly looked at him, "Dad,""I'm seeing you a lot in the hospital bed rather than on a magazine this past year,""And you would never see me again in a magazine," she smiled and hugged her father. Averill still liked her father even after everything."I'm sorry," "
"Are you sure you'll be fine alone? Do you want Liam to stay with you?" William asked again but Averill simply smiled at him. William was acting out of character for Averill but she does not dislike it.It rather made her heart flutter. At last, her father is looking at her the way he looks at her other siblings.'So it would take a lot of pain to see you care for me,' Averill sighed with the thought in mind. She had been holding her thoughts since yesterday but she finally decided to muster up the courage to ask her father some things."Dad,""Yes, dear?""You did it, right?""What do you mean?" William asked, sitting on the bed where Averill is resting."The reason why I was not criticized even when I married Noah,"William made a small smile on his lips. "That is the least that I could do for you. I have been neglecting you for years,""But I know now that I deserved everything that I have been through, Dad. I'm sorry... I'm a disgrace to the family, right?" Averill looked away, th
"Noah! Babe!" Yanna shouted inside Noah's office when she opened the door. She rushed to his desk and kissed the person who was not even moved when she suddenly came."I miss you," she whispered but the latter simply smirked."Why are you not saying it back?" Yanna pouted and moved away of him. Noah stood up and grabbed her shoulder roughly and started kissing Yanna violently.Yanna groaned in pain but let him continue. She grabbed his collars to pull him to her face even more but not even a minute had passed that Noah pushed her away.\"You reek of cigarette, woman," Noah disgustingly wiped his lips and drank the cold water on his desk.Yanna did not see the disgust on his eyes, rather, her heart fluttered when she saw that Noah is still concerned of her. 'He really hates it when I smoke since it is bad for my health, hayyy, what will I do with this loving person?' Yanna had no idea that it was not Noah meant with his words. It was not words of concern but rather frank statement tha
Averill's POV"Hello?" I answered the phone in haste when I saw Karl's name on it. I don't know why my hands unconsciously moved on their own. I just got a bad feeling about this.Karl and I aren't really close. We talked a few times before that I know he's totally loyal to my husband."Who's that?" Liam asked. Three days... it has been three days but he's still insisting on staying at my house.I mouthed Karl's name and then he nodded before continuing what he's watching. Jeez, he's just lazing around and trying to ditch father's work for him, right?I went inside my room and waited for karl, "Karl? Hello?"[Oh, god! Ms. Averill? Sorry for the late call, ma'am but I really need your help!" he shouted on the other line, it's noisy there so I guess he really needs to shout every word for me to understand.What the hell is going on and where the hell is he?[Ma'am, are you there?] I was too indulged in my thoughts that I did not notice him calling my name again. Well, added to it was th
"That concludes the meeting, gentlemen," Averill smiled at them and stared at the four men in front of him, waiting for someone to complain since that is where they are good at... but contrary to what she expected, the four of them are casually discussing the said meeting like what happened earlier did not happen at all.Noah leaned to Averill and whispered something to her ears. The latter felt tickled when his warm breath touches her skin but remained looking at front. "You are something, Averill Hursen," Noah said, smirking like he won something though Averill did all the field work for him."I can't believe you're hiding such treasure, Noah," Hugo, CEO of one of the huge real estate business in the country, said, shaking hands with Noah. The latter smirked and glanced at Averill, he's sober up after an hour of listening to Averill's explanation of the expansion of the business that the five of them are going to do."She's full of surprises, ain't she," Noah chuckled. Averill could
