Xavier put off his laptop, he stood up, and wore his jacket blazer. He picked up his phone, and strode out of his office.As he strode out of his office, he met his personal assistant by the door frame, with his gaze down, shivering in fear."I'm on my way to the mansion, Inform Ms Charlotte to go to the station before heading home." Xavier breathes out, and turned a blind eye, not caring if he was shivering.Xavier was mad at him, if he hadn't picked up the wrong Charlotte years back, Arya wouldn't have stayed in his mansion, spending extravagantly for the past four years."Yes, master, I will do that." He responded, and Xavier walked out of the company.The guard, waiting for him, quickly opened the car door for Xavier to get inside."Take me to Ms Charlotte mansion." The guard quickly put on the car engine and hit the road.Xavier stayed quiet, thinking of how to handle the whole situation. Arya has spent extravagantly for the past four years, he never took any action to stop her b
People walk to the deceased, dropping flowers besides the casket. Proper rites have been carried out for the deceased, and he is about to be buried.Mr Xi stepped forward holding a flower in his hands, he pulled out his glass and wiped a tear from his eyes. The manager has been humble to him, he has worked for him for more than twenty years, and his sudden death touched him.He stood there for about five minutes looking at the dead body, mumbling some words to his ears only.Xavier strode forward, and patted his father's back, consoling him. The manager was close to him, but that wouldn't have stopped him from terminating his employment if he had not died in the hotel.Xavier and his father dislike rules being broken by employees. They believe their employees come first, and in other to protect their rights, no one is above the rules, all employees must abide to the employee's manual."I know you're heartbroken, but we can't stay here the whole day. You're the only one we're waiting f
Arya arrived home to find the maids bringing out her few clothes, after two days of staying out. She stood in a daze at first, not sure if she was seeing things vividly. She hadn't been home in two days, she had no idea if something happened in her absent.She drags her legs to where her bag was dumped on the floor, and halt, looking at the only bag she had."Why are my clothes outside? Who ordered you to bring out my clothes?" She thundered, thinking the maids would be scared of her like always, but she got the opposite.The two maids burst out laughing at her reaction, she always acted bossy, today was their turn."Mr jasper did, you're leaving the house you cheat. You acted all mighty and rich, but you were all faking it."Arya couldn't believe her ears, and how boldly the maid replied to her."What are you talking about? What is wrong with you? Have you lost it?""No Arya, we haven't lost it. You're the one who has lost it. A psychopath, that's what you are."Arya's eyes widened w
Charlotte is seated in the waiting area at the station, watching the cops carry out their duties. She was asked to come to the station to be questioned alongside Veronica, and Xavier was kind enough to let go during working hours.A few minutes later, Veronica strode into the station and was greeted by some cop. After the greetings and all, she starts to march on her heels when she saw Charlotte, and gracefully walked up to her."You murderer, are you happy I'm now a widower? Is that what you wanted, how could you be so mean?" Veronica spat, diverting her attention to her.Charlotte stood up, and cast her head down, showing some respect. "I'm sorry your husband died that way, but I never killed anyone, you can't call me a murderer when you have no proof." Charlotte defended herself."I'm going to kill you today, you killed my husband and have the guts to talk back at me." Veronica raised her hands to hit her, but someone quickly held her hands."Mrs this isn't a place where you can ca
Mr Xi marched into the company with a dark expression on his face. He saw the news and couldn't sit back at home and do nothing, when Xavier hasn't taken any action.The expression on his face made workers clumsy when they set their eye's on his face. Xavier took after his father, the both of them are scary and dangerous when it comes to handling affairs.It's been two hours since the scandal went viral, and the dead body that was found in the company's garden. Out of nowhere, reporters showed up and surrounded the company, but had to leave when Xavier threatened them.Mr Xi walked into his son's office without a knock from him. Xavier lifted his head up when he heard the door closed. He wasn't surprised, this is his father, and he would do more than that if he wished too."Excuse us, I will call you in when I'm done." Evelyn nodded, and walked out of the room.After making himself comfortable, he turned to his son. "Is there something you're not telling me? Are you the Xavier I know?
Alley walked into Charlotte's house, and found her seated, lost in thought. She walked up to her, and waved her hands in front of her face.After doing it for the third time, Charlotte snapped out of it, with a sigh. Since she got off work, she hasn't been herself. Xavier's request had been stuck on her mind."Don't tell me you're thinking? You have nothing to worry about when you work at the Xi company." Alley said, excited."Best it's not about the job. I have something I haven't said to anyone, and it's been weighing me down. I have guilty conscience anytime I see my mum."Alley adjusted her sit on the couch, and entangled her legs, with her hands rested on it, staring into Charlotte's eyes."I don't know what it is you have been keeping to yourself, but I promise you one thing, if you tell me now, and you want me to keep it a secret, I promise to do that."Charlotte did not have a second thought about it, Alley has been her friend for years, and she knows she can confide in her."M
Sofia came home reeking of alcohol and smoke. She managed to drive home, and help herself out of the car to the living room before she collapsed on the sofa.A maid who saw her walking inside drunk, hurried upstairs to go get Sofia's mother. Four minutes later, she returned with her and Sofia's kid brother."Sofia, what have you turned yourself into? When do you intend to stop wasting your life like this? Which man would want a lady who goes to party and gets drunk?" Julian asked, and sat close to her on the sofa.Sofia's head was buried on the sofa, she jerked her head up smiling, then placed her hands on her mother's jaw and started to shake it."Baby Julian, when are you going to stop emphasizing I'm wasting my life? Don't you think that's a bit harsh?" Sofia's hand dropped to the ground, and she burst out laughing."Mother, she's right, it's a bit harsh. I know I'm not supporting this life she's living, but please stop using the word waste on her. It's like something without use."
The sound of their breath was all that could be heard as they stared deeply into each other's eyes. They both had something to say, but each one of them was restraining from going first.The stare continued for another five minutes without a word from the two friends, until a knock was heard on the door, and Xavier had to look away."Come in." He ordered, and tilted his head to the left, his eyes glued back to Alex.Jasper strode inside holding a phone in his hands. He got to Xavier's desk, and bowed his head in respect."Master, you have to see this for yourself." He said, and handed the phone to him.It was a clip of Scott outside the company, and a car next to his he was staring at."What is he doing there? If he came to see me, what is stopping him from coming inside?" Xavier asked, after watching the clip, and passed the phone to Alex, who took it from him."I don't think he came here to see you. Maybe he came for some investigation. I sent him the footage yesterday, I think that
