Emily was an investigative journalist who had been her friend since middle school, they had been inseparable ever since despite the fact that they were opposites of each other. She dialed Emily’s number, her fingers tapping anxiously on her bag while waiting at the bus stop.“Emily, I am dead, come and collect my corpse.” Emerald blurted out as soon as Emily answered.“It is not a good time to die, the economy has not been good on coffin prices,” Emily answered.“Can’t you at least worry if the mortuary is too cold for your friend’s body first?” Emerald asked.“Okay, spill the tea, Em, who killed you?”“Mark Hartley and my big mouth joined hands and plotted this murder,” Emerald cried.“ Is this about the big project?” Emily’s voice crackled with curiosity on the other end of the line.“Partly, Mark assumes I’m married and wants my husband

As such, she is never worried that she will crash into someone and have to defend her lies.

But a single leak can sink a boat.The Skyline Hotel, an epitome of elegance and grandeur, stood tall against the cityscape.

THE PARTY When Emerald heard his words, she paused for a second. “It seems I missed my own wedding, You are not offended, right?” she asked sarcastically. “You seem offended that you are Mrs. Reeves.” Emerald, her composure intact, replied with a hint of defiance, “Yes, I’m Emerald Jackson. But what I don’t understand is why am I also Mrs. Reeves?” A subtle smile played on Matthew’s lips as he took a moment before responding, “And why did you not refuse the claims? It seems you’ve been content with the arrangement.” The exchange carried a palpable tension, each word a step deeper into the unraveling mystery. To his words, Emerald slightly choked“I am not the one that started this, why should I be the one that ends it? Besides, you even managed to let someone I want to work with find out. Are you not glad I did not expose you?” she asked. Emerald, determined to confront the situation head-on, retorted “I never agreed to this. I need to know why you’ve been spreading this false

ENCOUNTERING WOLVES She could feel cold air tearing through her lungs with every step, as well as the growls. It sounded like wolves. She was from a small town by the mountains. Even with her ears barely working. “ A wolf? Is this a city or a national park?” She could definitely recognize the growl of a wolf. She found it impossible that such wild animals would be out in the city. Maybe she was wrong, maybe she had too much to drink. She soon felt that running on the open road was too risky. She dashed into an alley and continued without stopping, just when she thought she could not run anymore, she tripped over something and fell almost head first into the concrete. She struggled to get up, only to notice that it was not something, it was someone. She suppressed the urge to scream despite her almost bursting heart and looked down to find a person. Even in the dark, she could still make out the form of a man’s broad shoulders covered in a dark coat. It was Matthew Reeves. “Oh

HE IS AWAKE“The Lost Ones blocked my way, but how can those things be my equal? There was something else there. They followed its orders. I heard it whisper and the shadow locked me in. I could not get out. It was then I was attacked,” he recounted his accident.“By wolves? Your wounds...” Doctor Hunter started to say.“Werewolves,” he answered.“There are werewolves who would work with The Lost Ones?” Doctor Hunter asked in a half growl and half shout. “Trapped in the shadow, I was ambushed. I know a werewolf when I see one. Even then, how did they manage to drug me?” he asked and Doctor Hunter walked closer to his bed where he laid.“I also want to know that. Mathew, You obviously cannot be drugged, but I found something in your system and you were out as though you were drugged. Your injuries were not enough to weaken you that way. Could there be a new drug on the market?” he said to Matthew.“It felt like a drug, something injected into the air. But that is not the issue. Emera

The First Kiss“The way you say it, someone would have thought that I pretended to be your wife, not that you lied that you are married to me,” Emerald said as she walked in.“I never lied,” Mathew said and she scoffed and walked over.“Since you are awake. You can deal with the hospital matters. As for our deal. We need to talk it out,” she said.“What is there to discuss?” he asked, “We are married.”she always had a feeling his words meant something more when she heard it and it bothered her greatly.“So, you need me to act as your wife at certain times and you will help me with the Mark Hartley issue right?” she asked.“I will help you with the Mark Hartley issue,” he answered and she wondered why he did not answer the first half of that question.“Alright, then. I will be leaving,” she turned to leave. When she first came over, she had a lot of words to say. But those words disappeared the more she stared at his handsome face. “I need to go, I have work to do. Since you are all

To Obey His Wife“Why won’t you believe me? Why would I kill you?” Matthew asked.“So that your secret does not get out,” she said.“Is that what you are worried about? Not that you are my wife?” he asked and her tears fell like rain.“If you think about it, no one would believe you if you told anyone, so…” Matthew tried finding words to convince her, but her cries only got louder.“You are lying, you are taking me back to kill,” she cried loudly. She could no more keep up her brave front as all her tall walls collapsed and she cried like a child. Her crying bothered him so much, it felt as though his chest was about to explode from the pain. His legs came down on the brakes and he immediately turned to her.“I swear I won’t kill you to keep my secret, okay?
