Gerald's POV Home sweet home. I couldn't believed after getting shot in the chest twice by my own brother I'm still alive. Grayson's bullet is no joke, he use his favorite gun against me which almost took my life. I observe the whole mansion from the outside, and almost forgot what it looks like because he is the reason why I become like this, and now he become so powerful than me? I'm not letting than happened. I open my eyes and exposed to the reality awaits me, they probably not expecting me to come as soon as I recovered and wasn't expecting me either too. I went inside and saw how the house change to my sight or it didn't change at all maybe because I'm not paying attention when we arrive in this mansion, my father wasn't here and the only one I can rely on is Patricia. "Welcome back, Gerald! My best friend!" Asher exclaimed. He gave me a hug, "I thought you were dead! What a relief! Don't you miss me?""Get your filthy hands off me, Asher. I am tempted to break your hands, s
Patricia's POV My whole body is exhausted because of frustration in this house, so I decided to head inside my room after chillin in the balcony and mess up with Erika a little bit. However, in my surprised Gerald was inside drinking his brandy and he wasn't paying attention to me when I get inside. So, I went to the bathroom to wash my face and change my clothes.His fast recovery gives us so much relieved, without him. I don't know how to handle Grayson and stay on this house, especially since his father seem not attracted to my mom anymore. They barely talked or having affection, and she's anxious because it might be the end of her luxurious life. I don't want to hold on that fact, although Mr. Martinez was ignoring my mom's presence.After changing my clothes and washing my face, I opened the door and startled after seeing Gerald standing outside. My heart almost pop out of my chest because of that, so I gave him a glare for doing such dangerous thing. "What the hell are you the
Erika's POVI turn off my phone and laid down my bed, it's already nine pm in the evening and this mansion is quiet as it use to be because Grayson seemed to fan of quietness. While me? I couldn't stand this terrifying quietness because I was born to live in havoc and miserable life. As I mentioned before, I carried all the responsibilities at the age of 16. Mom threw us aside and married someone else after making sure my younger brother can live on his own.While our father? He already has a family and my mom is his mistress. Our dad hide us from everyone until he made a decision that breaks our family apart, he cut every single connection to us and abandoned me and my brother. That is the time my mom decided to neglect us, and find a man who can remove her from poverty. Then, mom married the man she meet after Eric got hospitalized and worse, mom refuse on helping us. She even told me let my brother die, and find a way to live. That day I hated her, and carrying resentment is bad.
Erika's POVAnother day, another life. We're currently heading to my brother's room because this is my only chance to visit him since Grayson don't allowed me to go often, although he give me freedom with limits. I understand why because his brother came back and he is afraid Gerald might done something to me again. So, Gray go with me and that's surprising, and exciting at the same time. This is my first time visiting my brother with another friend, although Grayson didn't consider me as his friend. I still consider him though. "Are you sure that gifts was enough? You haven't visit him for so long," he muttered."Don't worry, Grayson. He know the importance of life over money, he won't mind if your gift is small or big.""I highly doubt that. Kids these days or spoiled brats, and I remember my niece whose spoiled by her parents. They're all the same, trust me.""No, trust me. My brother's different," I murmured and stop in front of the door where my brother's room located. "Are yo
Grayson's POVI secretly scanned the whole room and seem to be a room where he can secretly did his business, this man interrupt my precious time. I don't know him and never seen him in my life. Perhaps he bump before but I didn't pay attention. "You're Grayson Martinez, right?" He asked again. "Am I required to answer that obvious question?" I asked."Erika deserve a better life and you're not a better life, Gray, because we both know how dangerous your life is."I smirked, "You know what? I'm surprised.""Why is that?""You know me but I don't know you. Isn't it ironic?" I said."Don't you remember me?" He murmured. "Sorry, who are you?""Are you freaking serious?" "If you have nothing to say, whoever you are. I'm outta here because my time is more important than yours, doc.""Wait!" He stop me."Do you wanna die, doc?" I warned him but he seemed not affected. I exhaled violently, "Who the hell are you?"He removed his glasses before exposing me his eyes and that scar is quite
TWO WEEKS LATER Erika's POVEveryone is gathered in the dining room and silence is like a deadly knife that can stab you if you speak, they are not making any sounds and it made me feel uncomfortable. I have no right asking them nor opening a conversation and their terrifying aura is enough to scare me. Mr. Martinez is already here, and he's eating breakfast with us but not just only him because his son and step-daughter also second wife is here. Great. They're present. I still thought I would have peace because they weren't there, but that was just my imagination. They came home yesterday and when I found out, I felt like I needed to be vigilant because at any time they could kill me.Wait, why am I nervous? Grayson, Nicholas and Asher were there to ensure my safety. Right! I must believe in them because as long as they live I am safe. But what if they have important work to do?Alas! Looks like I need to pray every day!"Your wife seems to be thinking deeply, Grayson?" I woke up
Grayson's POV"What? You're kidding me right?" Asher exclaimed when I told what happened yesterday. "Do you wanna die?"He raised his hands in surrender, "Chill man!""I thought you're not going, Grayson?" Nicholas muttered. "I thought too, Nicholas. But Erika agreed without knowing if I approved it or not, she made a decision without me.""You should punished her," he recommended. "Woah! Relax! Punishment was not a good option," Asher's word confused me."What the f*ck happening to you?" I mumble. "Maybe Erika has explanation? She wouldn't disobey your rules neither you if not," he shrugged. I remember what Erika told me yesterday, she told me my brother start suspecting about me and her. It's none of my freaking business anyway, Gerald always suspect because he wanted to get rid of me. That jerk! "So, you're going?" Nicholas inquired. I leaned to my chair and shut my eyes, "I don't know. She's giving me problems and already regret my choice.""You should not, Gray. You came
@PARTYErika's POVHere we are, standing in front of the enormous mansion in front of us and couldn't stop myself from swallowing. That house is way more bigger than Grayson's, and if you didn't saw any mansion before like me. You can mistaken this to a palace because it looks like one, and be shamed putting your shoes in that place. "Stop action weird," Grayson spoke beside me, and doesn't noticed his presence because we ride a different car. Yes, we ride a different car and still avoiding me although I am living on the same roof. Maybe this is the punishment he's talking about, and this is uncomfortable. I mean, Gray distancing himself from me and couldn't blame him since it's all my freaking fault. "I forgot to warn you. My grandma wasn't friendly like dad. She'll asked you too many uncomfortable questions, and I want you to deal with her alone.""What?" I glance at him nervously, "I thought you have my back?""Yes, I said that. But I didn't say while your in punishment. Just th
