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
A Lamborghini came to a halt, and a chauffeur hurried outside to pull the door open for the figure. A man in a hat marched out, fixed his jacket, and began to march into a studio room. He strode inside, and sat on the couch already placed for him."Welcome Boss." A figure in the room greeted, and he just nodded. He rested his right leg on his left, and pulled out a cigarette from his pocket.He stretched his hands to the right, and the figure kindle it up. He inhaled, and blew out smoke from his mouth, and smiled."Were you able to get the job done? I'm not seeing what I anticipated?" He asked, and inhaled the cigarette."Yes, Boss, I did as instructed. The reporters were there to make a record of it. But it didn't get publicize much, Xavier threatened the reporters, and they had to leave the place in fear."The figure dropped the cigarette, and dropped his leg down."I gave you enough money to pay them and make sure the videos stays on the internet, what did you do with it?""The mon
Charlotte's heels clunks as she strides to her office. She just came back from dispatching mails outside the establishment, and had to hurry back to the company because she has been feeling a bit down after her encounter with Arya yesterday.It has been a hectic day for her, running here and there to make sure she sent out mails, and filing documents. She hasn't spent an hour in the office today.She strode into her office, and took her sit, ready to start creating records, when Xavier flashed into her mind. She hasn't seen him the entire day, he has not stepped his foot into the company.Charlotte had something to ask him, she was ready to have the conversation she had been running away from, just to clear her mind from what happened years back.She thought, perhaps if she confronts him about the wristwatch. She might know why Arya asked her out last night, and why she accused her of ruining her life.The scandal from days back arouse last night, and Charlotte was told that Xavier wen
"How did it happen? If you were there when she got kidnapped, why did you not save her? What do I pay you for?" Xavier spat at his assistant angrily. He was devastated by the news.Scott stood in a daze, amazement wash through him. He couldn't understand why Xavier was getting mad. Everything felt like he was greatly affected by the incident.Jasper has already explained to him that he wasn't there when she was kidnapped. She only called to ask if she could pick up a personal package for Xavier, and that was when he heard her screaming for help on the phone, and the line went off.Charlotte already left the post office. She was standing by the roadside waiting to hail a cab. The office had told her Mr Xi had a package, from his brother, and asked Charlotte to pick it up since she works at the company.But Charlotte was skeptical about it, since it wasn't part of her job. She decided to call jasper to ask if she could pick it up, that was how she got kidnapped at the roadside.Scott ma
Xavier left home earlier than he does on a working day. He could not close his eyes last night, thinking that Charlotte's family might have been worried about her.They were on the road to Charlotte's house, alongside jasper, who kept him updated on the papers he was asked to review while Xavier left for the hospital."That's all master. But one more thing. Ms Charlotte met with Arya a day back after she left the bar.""What for? What's their relationship?" Xavier asked, getting more fascinated. He is still perplexed about how the wristwatch was with Arya instead of Charlotte."I made a little investigation, Arya worked at the hotel with Ms Charlotte. They were friends, but not close one's.""If they're not close friends, why did she meet with her?""These are pictures I took from the night. It seems they had an argument, and Arya pulled Ms Charlotte's hair." Jasper passed him his phone.'Could this be that Arya had a hand in her kidnap? No way, What could have led to their fight?'"W
