Carl and Lyon rushed inside to find a somehow normal scene inside a delivery room.Lia is on the hospital bed with the lower half of her body concealed by a hanged surgical cloth, for privacy. While her doctor is standing between her wide-open legs while two nurses assist her. The midwife and her assistant are cleaning the newborn heir nearby. While the pediatrician is closely monitoring. What's unusual about the scene is Vasili being slumped atop Lia's chest while a nurse is holding him still. They could see her placing gentle kisses on his face while saying something they could not hear.Vasili, on the other hand, looks lethargic on his spot, seeming to be asleep. "What happened?" Larry, who is closely following behind, asks upon seeing the scene."Vasili fainted" Lia was the one to explain despite her constricted breath, not from giving birth but from the heaviness of Vasili's top body slumped on her chest. Earlier, they are both enjoying their newborn right after he came out,
It's been a week since baby Eric was born and the mansion has never been the same again. Every day they would have visitors, checking on them. Either a Petrov or a Wright. Lyon and Kara also request to see them often. The baby's powerful cry would always reverberate in four corners of the room, especially during the days that his father is not around. Amelia doesn't mind him crying as long as he is not hungry or needs a diaper change. But whenever Vasili is around, everyone seems to be on pins and needles. He always worries about his son's crying. Vasili would glare at everyone once he hears his son cry. As if crying would endanger baby Eric. His over-protectiveness is making Amelia crazy. "Why can't they make baby Eric settle? He is always crying. Do we need to replace the team?" Vasili mumbles one morning. They are at the balcony lounge for Eric's daily dose of sunshine. He is sleeping naked atop his father's bare chest. Hearing what he said made Amelia more incredulous. She no
A month after she gave birth and with Vasili at home for their baby, she went to meet with her friends. She was reluctant to go out but Vasili insisted, saying she should have time for herself.And after some earnest deliberation with herself, she decided to go. Every second of being a mother is priceless but she needs time to be with friends to maintain her balance. Inside the cafe, they usually visit, they get settled beside the glass wall. It has an overlooking view of the riverside across the main road of Cape City. Unlike Vasili, her security remains to be in disguised whenever she is in public. She doesn't want to get attention as much as she could handle. She is not a public figure like her husband. Only two of her civilian security were inside with her, having their coffee. The rest were outside, they blend with bystanders at the nearby park and some were inside the vehicle, watching the entire area. Though she was featured in different news portals with Vasili, she is stil
With the robbers' attention focused on the officers and how they could hide from them, Lia quietly sneaked in between the tables.Until she reached the wall separating the restroom from the main room, no one from the assailants noticed her. She moves without disturbing the air along the way. A true-blooded Stepanov, without shadow in the dark and without footprints on any ground. It's a perfect afternoon that turned out bloody. People hiding from whatever could conceal them have started to gather outside, watching the scene from the glass wall. Media people have started to arrive, getting footage through their high-resolution cameras. Peeking to find the five men hiding at the counter, she has no clear sight of them but the two small feet hanging from the man's grasp of the child. Her security remain unmoving on their spot but was ready to assist her, while Caleb remains to hug Cristy with his back facing the counter. "Get out of here or I will finish this girl first and her broth
As expected, the robbers went out to the waiting police officers across the exit. Media personnel is afar together with the curious crowd. "Shit" they all mutter. One of them got hold of the cashier with the gun pointed at her side. "Please..." she quivers in fear. "Nothing will happen to you if these bastards here will just cooperate with us" the man snickers. "This is Captain Seville, let's talk" one of the officers speaks with his hands raised in the air. He is making certain the robbers know he is unarmed. "We don't need pleasantries Captain. We need a vehicle" the man jeers. "The vehicle is being prepared, it will arrive any minute" calmly, he explains. "We don't have a minute. A minute passed, also a bullet for these two here" snickering, he retorted. The crazed look in his eyes was noted by the Captain. "Don't hurt the innocent, it would be a grave mistake" calm yet firm, the officer warned. "I don't fucking care. Where's the vehicle?" he sneers before he angrily raves.
Vasili arrives in just walking shorts and a white V-neck t-shirt and slippers. And the first he tries to find is his wife whom he found hugging a child while rounded by her security.Since he left the mansion, he has been watching the news and he witnessed the entire negotiation. However, he has been apprehensive and preoccupied with finding his wife, which he hasn't found not until the man holding the girl was taken down. He instantly knew his wife was responsible. And he was proven right when she came out from hiding, aiming for the remaining four. With all the media people taking footage of the incident, everything was captured through the lens of every camera. The public has witnessed how a frail-looking girl has deterred the impending tragedy. Saving the life of the small girl who is on the verge of death at the hands of the criminals. And it won't be long before the populace would realize, who she is. Everyone would know, she is his wife. Nevertheless, he doesn't care. Amel
A week after the incident, Amelia Stepanov-Wright has become the household talk in the country after taking down the robbers and saving the hostages' lives.Footage of how she promptly assaulted the men has been all over the news and it earned different reactions. Most are bewildered by her skill with a gun. Like the officers, no one had expected such a frail and innocent-looking girl could pull out such mastery. Being associated with the Wrights and Petrov instantly secured her a spot in society, however, seeing her other side earned her a new and distinct reputation. The fierce wife of the Mafia Boss. Contrary to her previous status of being a stray cat, everyone now has a clear perspective of who she is. Her presence has never left unnoticed. Everybody seems to be going out of their way to interact with her. Even her met glance affects those who try to have her attention. Like a celebrity, she walks under the limelight of everyone's admiring attention."Should we set a tariff for
