~Tamia~ The moment we stepped outside, I exhaled. "What would you like to speak to me about, Tamia?" he asked gently, and I looked at him. "First of all, I want to congratulate you. I heard of you and Susan, and I am happy for both of you," I said; he nodded and looked away. "I heard a rumour that I want to confirm with you, Devin, and I need you to be honest with me. To start with, I know you did not face Sylvester during the legendary war. I know it was Dominic, but I have kept your secret. I am telling you this so you know you can trust me," I said, and he chuckled. "I knew you figured it out. There was no way you would be close to Volkov and not know that fact," he said, and I smiled. "What do you want to ask me?" He asked, and I sighed. "It is about your encounter with Lord Maurice Volkov," I said, and his expression became serious. "Nothing serious, Devin. Nothing bad; I just want to clarify, please," I said, and he nodded reluctantly. "I do not want trouble. The Volkov
~Tamia~ My legs could not carry me fast enough. I walked through the house quickly. Wanting to get to Sylvester and give him the news. I appreciated Devin for telling me the truth. It took a lot for him to put his reputation on the line like that. That reputation had kept the south safe; if this comes out that Lucas was the one that killed Maurice and Gavin, then it will be over. While I moved towards the room, I knew the Lucas narrative was a part we must keep secret. Establishing that Devin did not attack because of the letter was enough to get Stephanie off the hook. As for Jenny's death, the evidence Mathew Majesty might have against her will not stick because no one knew what happened other than Sylvester, the two Kappas that worked for Stephanie and me. The Kappas would never tell a soul because they would condemn themselves and their families in the process, so I doubted that would be an issue. The letter was my biggest fear, and knowing it won't be admissible was great ne
~Tamia~ I hesitated before knocking on Leo's door. I did not want to argue, but I knew I had to be the one to tell him that we were finally going to see the man that sent Amanda to ruin our home. I knocked. "It's open," I heard his voice say, and I entered the room. He was packing his bags. Leo looked at me and was surprised to see me. "Tamia," he said, confused. "What are you doing here?" He asked me. "Amanda is going to Grizlo to meet her lover. She should be there by now. We are all going to catch them. Sylvester wanted me to inform you so you can join us," I said, and he sighed. "He told you to tell me?" He asked me, wondering why Sylvester did not tell him himself. Looking at Leo now, I knew why. Amanda was our mess, and he wanted us to work together. "I can't wait to give that bitch the treatment she deserves," He growled, and Black surfaced. "I hope you all know I will kill her when I see her," He said, and I shook my head. "The babies?" I said, and he growled. "His
~Sylvester~ Sneaking to Grizlo was challenging. We believed we would stand out, but the airline company that we used made sure we did not come in contact with anyone. The owner was honoured that I would be using one of his jets. Seeing Tamia sleep on the couch in the apartment made me doubt that bringing her was right, but I wanted her to be involved. I knew if I asked her to remain at home, she wouldn't like it, and she was the only person that could stop Leo from doing something crazy. I would have decided not to come with Leo, but I needed support just in case we encountered more than Amanda and her lover. No matter how messed up his emotions were, both he and Devin had proven their loyalty. The four-wheel drive arrived in the dead of the night, and I was disappointed to see that it was Vino Lawrence. I sort of liked the guy, even though he seemed creepy. I wondered why he got himself involved in this shit. At twenty-five years old, he was too young for this. It was sad. I co
~Sylvester~ The conversation between the two bothered me. Vino was scared, and this woman still told him to hang in there. Did she know the repercussions of her behaviour at all? "Are you crazy?" Vino said to her. "Do you know what has happened?" He added, and she was silent. "Sylvester is now the King. The actual King. The council has no power anymore. We are just advisers now. If Sylvester catches us, we have no saving grace. He can do as he pleases with us, Amy. No one would question him. No one will fight him. We are finished. Thanks to you, every ally of ours is behind bars or in hiding. I need to know who this man is and understand why he is doing this," Vino said, and she shook her head. "Trust me," Amanda said, and Vino exclaimed. "Trust you? Only a blind idiot would trust you. You destroy everything you touch. You ruin the people you claim to love for personal reasons. Only a fool will trust you." He said, and she stepped back. I guess his words hurt her feelings. "Wha
~Tamia~ I could not believe that Amanda was manipulating Vino too. Sitting on the plane with her made me sick, and it wasn't just me. Leo and Avery too. She was indeed a snake. I could not believe the weak, innocent-looking bitch could pull off so many stunts. I was going to enjoy getting information out of her. Sylvester pulled me close to comfort me, but I was angrier than upset. I masked my emotions so he would not feel his touch wasn't enough. Based on everyone's countenance, it would have been nice if we did not have to fly in the same plane with Amanda, the snake. "I lost a lot of good soldiers," Devin started, and I understood his anger. We lost a lot while they schemed to cause a war. "We almost went to war, and to think this bitch and her father were behind it all. Vino, too," he said and balled his fist in anger. "There was so much I lost trying to secure my region and push back. All the while, I thought the Volkovs were the problem, and I put my life on hold for it,"
~Tamia~ I looked at Sylvester, and I knew he was angry. Avery went to sit on the couch while Marcel and Theodore stood around waiting for an explanation. I knew what they would hear would crush them, but they asked for it. "Tamia, please tell them what you found out about Devin's venture in the south," Sylvester said, and I shook my head. "Lord Marcel has blamed me for a lot today already. I think it is best you tell them yourself. I am here because I have been accused of causing a rift between friends," I said, and Marcel chuckled. "No one said that, Tamia," he said gently. "But you implied it," Avery said, coming to my defence. "Very well then. I am sorry if it came across like that. I was just disappointed that Sylvester would keep vital information from us." He said, and I shook my head. "Did it ever occur to you that he did it out of love and he was trying to protect the two of you?" I said and looked at Sylvester. "The three of you grew up together; why let someone like A
~Tamia~ I woke up early in the morning, pumped up to accomplish some things, and saw Sylvester on his computer. He seemed a bit sad, and I knew it had to do with what we told Marcel and Theodore. "Hey," I said softly, and he smiled at me. "No need to pretend, darling; I know you are sad," I said, and he nodded. "Marcel did not take it well," he confessed, and I thought as much. "He was bound to know eventually, and at least now they both know. They will move on from it," I said, and he nodded. "Did you order the caesarean?" I asked, and he nodded. "Everything went well yesterday afternoon. She should be fully healed by now. No silver was involved, and she had three healthy babies. They are caring for the babies at the hospital, but she is back. Wison and William are watching her. Also, Vino is currently receiving treatment in the general hospital in Lucland. They said he would be fine, but he is yet to wake up," He told me, and I nodded. "Very well, I will question the bitch af
