~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
~Sylvester~ Tamia had done a number on Amanda by requesting a caesarean. It was as if all her defences had been stripped off entirely. When Tamia linked me to inform me that Larry was the king man, honestly, I took it as one of Amanda's lies. I sent people to Larry's house, and they told me that the people in his house said he had travelled to Grizlo. I wondered what he was doing in Grizlo, but I was also a bit pissed that maybe I had been misled again. I wanted to take over the interrogation myself when I barged in and saw what they had done to the treacherous woman. "Larry isn't at his house; he left two nights ago, according to his wife," I growled, angry that Amanda would have the effrontery to mislead us again. "She claims he is in his apartment in Gad. They were to meet there." Tamia said, and I looked at Amanda. She had been crying. Her face looked messed up, and I was sure Amanda did not know that her face was severely burnt. There was no way the silver burns did not hurt,
~Sylvester~I returned to my room after the meeting, and Tamia was waiting for me with a broad smile on her face. "I told you she would talk," she teased, and I went to hold her. I bent to kiss her neck, and the moan that escaped her lips was so inviting that I wanted to sink in my teeth badly and make her fully mine.I pulled away, knowing I had a mission at hand and I needed to move fast."So?" she asked with a broad grin, and I already knew what she would say. I knew she would want to know when we would go to Gad. There was no avoiding it. I took Leo's advice because Tamia would not back down if I said no.I sighed before replying so she would sense I was making a difficult decision."Out with it, your majesty," She said, pouting her lips. I wanted to grab her and kiss them, but duty called."Marcel is talking to an airline company that would get us into Gad covertly, while Theodore has sent the shadow guards covertly," I said, and she frowned."Why not warriors? Why guards?" She
~Sylvester~ We walked into the building and found Larry sitting on the couch in the living room. There was rage inside me, but I controlled it. Devin advanced toward him, but something was wrong with the scene. He was too calm about the situation for comfort. By now, he should have reached out to his security and found out they are dead. "I see she talked," He said and turned to look at us. Devin stopped moving towards him. I guess he too, sensed something was wrong. "I must commend you for getting this far, Sylvester," he said without addressing me by my title, which showed that he had given up pretences. "When you took over from Maurice, we believed it would be easy. You weren't so difficult like your father and easy to manipulate because you tried not to be like him. Then the eastern bitch came into your life, and suddenly you weren't so hasty anymore," he said and shook his head gently to show he was stressed. His eyes were fixed on me. He wasn't paying attention to others
