Jack whistled as the doctor redressed Damian’s gunshot wound on his back. Despite being extra careful, Damian’s wound still opened during his wild sex with Evelyn. His back was covered in blood. “Did Evelyn do this?” Jack asked with a raised brow. “Honestly, I would never imagine she could do that. She looks so innocent.” Evelyn who was seated by Damian’s side looking worried blushed profusely. She was horrified when they finished doing the deed, she saw blood on the beddings beneath Damian. Guilt rushed through her thinking she had caused Damian’s wounds to re-open. “It was really careless of you to do this Sir. Ma’am, I’m sure you can wait for your man to recover for you to get intimate. If you can’t bear it, I can recommend another way to soothe your desires.” The doctor who was stitching Damian’s wound said while occasionally glancing at Evelyn. “I… I.. We..” Evelyn gulped. She was at a loss for words. Her face flushed a rosy red. It was embarrassing for everyone to kno
A week passed. Damian was still in the hospital. However, his injury had begun to heal and he no longer needed bandages. Despite not being able to move or walk properly, he could now sit up straight in bed. Evelyn had been of great help to him. She took care of him. Making sure he ate and took his medication on time. Aside from that, she would help him wipe his body and change his clothes since he couldn't move yet. She had worked really hard the past few days but she wasn't complaining. Damian was there with her, in the flesh. She couldn't be more grateful. This time they spent together in the hospital had made them closer. They would chat about this and that. With each day that passed, their bond grew stronger. Damian sat with his back resting against the wall. He had a laptop in his hands, working on something. Evelyn sat on her couch, propped up by her elbow. She was eyeing Damian dreamily with stars in her eyes. Despite being in a hospital gown, he looked like a god.
Evelyn had just walked into the ward and happened to hear the last part of Damian’s and Jack’s conversation. She heard how they were looking for someone to send as an undercover to Zach’s territory but they were also worried that no one will be willing. A lightbulb went off in her head and she offered herself instantly, wanting to help Damian get rid of Zach. “What did you say?” Damian’s voice boomed in the room. His eyes squinted and his voice turned icy. Evelyn shifted in her stance but she kept her cool. “I said I’m willing to be your spy. You can send me to get the evidence you need. I can do-” “Not happening. End of discussion.” Damian said coldly. “Why not? I’m just trying to help you.” Evelyn said, her chest heaving. “I’m not risking your life, kitten. You’re not going anywhere and that’s final.” Damian said in a tone of finality, his jaw clenched. Jack stared between the two and stood up from his seat. “I’ll give you two some privacy.” The couple didn’t acknowle
“Boss we caught Damian’s woman outside the club right now. She said she is looking for you. What should we do with her?” Zach was in his office smoking his joint as usual when his right-hand man, Rogers came in and reported to him. He raised an eyebrow upon hearing his words. “Really? What is she doing here?” “I don’t know. I thought she was up to something so I locked her up in the basement but she insists on meeting you saying it’s important.” Zach chuckled in mockery. “Interesting. Has Damian suddenly lost his mind and sent his precious woman to me?” A glint passed through his eyes and he smirked. “Bring her to me. Let’s hear what she has to say.” “Right away boss.” Rogers bowed slightly and left to get Evelyn. Zach stroked his chin with two fingers, playing with his beard. He had a calculating gaze in his eyes. When he planned to trap Damian the last time, he didn’t expect his men to arrive soon because he had sent some men to cause trouble and delay them. But he
“This way.” Evelyn followed behind the woman who was leading her to her bedroom. She was taken to Zach’s mansion in the suburbs. He wanted to keep an eye on her until Damian was dealt with. Even if it was clear that everything she said was true, he still had to be vigilant around her. They had just arrived a few minutes ago when the woman called Lisa came to the entrance to welcome him gleefully. But Zach ignored her and just ordered her to show Evelyn to her room. However, Evelyn did not miss the nasty glare that Lisa directed toward her and wondered what she had done. When they reached a door to the guest room Lisa opened it and glanced at Evelyn. “This will be your room.” Evelyn nodded and walked in before saying, “thank you.” She walked into the room and looked around. It was a simple room with cream-white walls. A double bed with striped beddings was placed at the center while long gray and white curtains covered the windows. To her surprise, Lisa followed her in w
On Damian’s side, it had only been a few hours since Evelyn had left and he had been on edge ever since. He missed her. The way she always smiled at him brightly like the rising sun each morning. The way she inched closer to him when sleeping, like a kitten in need of pampering. The way her body felt in his hands and the way she smelt, like cherries. Just every little thing about her. He missed it all. Being without her made him feel empty and lost. He had become addicted to her. She was like a drug running through his veins. Without his regular dose, he feared he might go crazy. But most of all, he was terrified for her. He couldn’t remain calm knowing she was in the lion’s den. He kept calling the men he had sent to lurk around Zach’s territory to check if anything had happened to her. It was only after they told him he would give their positions away if he kept calling that he finally stopped. But that still didn’t calm him down one bit. Not knowing how Evelyn was doing,
Zach had been staring out the window when he saw Evelyn walk up to a tree acting suspiciously. He watched as she took something white out of her pocket and threw it under the tree. The folds between his brows tightened as suspicion grew in his heart. What the hell was she doing? Curiosity filled him as his gaze lingered on the white thing on the ground. Taking out his phone, he called Rogers. “Check what Evelyn has thrown under the tree in the backyard and bring it to me, now.” He instructed the moment Rogers picked up and cut the call soon after. Rogers came into his office a few minutes later with a folded handkerchief and placed it on Zach’s desk. Zach stared at it for hours without touching it. He then told Rogers to call Evelyn so that he could confront her. If she was working as a spy, he wouldn’t hesitate to put a bullet in her chest. But what surprised him was Evelyn appeared to be calm despite seeing the handkerchief on his desk. There were no signs of nervousness o
The day of the drug trade had arrived. Evelyn had been antsy the whole night, waiting for Zach to leave for the operation. She didn’t sleep a wink, waiting for the break of dawn. If everything goes well, she would be able to go back home and see Damian. So naturally, she was both excited and scared. Zach had kept her under surveillance after the handkerchief incident, she could barely breathe or go to the toilet comfortably. At first, she was worried he had caught on to something but he did nothing extraordinary so she figured he was just being his overly cautious self. A knock on the door made her jerk up from the bed and look at it. Her heart began to race involuntarily. She frowned, wondering who could be knocking at that time. Since she locked the door, she stood up and went to open it and was surprised to find Lisa at the door. What did she want this early? “Can I help you?” Evelyn asked, looking confused. Lisa rolled her eyes and folded her arms haughtily. “The mas
