All I wanted to do was relax all night but I had barely sat down on the sofa when the doorbell rang, wondering who it was. I dragged my tired and lazy self to see who was at the door.I opened the door, surprised to see Arabella, Gianni's younger sister, looking worried and scared for some reason. I was instantly alerted that something was amiss.Arabella, what are you doing here this late? Where are Gianni and Luna? What's wrong?" I asked, concern lacing my voice.Her presence at my doorstep, looking so worried and scared, immediately ignited my protective instincts.

Miraculously, I realized that he was still alive, albeit in critical condition.Without wasting another moment, I knew I had to get Adrian to safety as a medical student. My mind raced, considering the options available to me.I dialed the first person number that came to my head at the moment, it rang, after sometime directed me to voicemail."Louis, please I need your help, it's very urgent," I said, my breath still shaking.As I awaited a response f
Gianni's POVAs I walked into the bustling restaurant, the familiar sounds and aromas greeted me. Bella, one of my colleagues, immediately caught my attention with her curious expression."Damn, who is that?" she blurted out, her eyes fixed on someone across the room.I followed her gaze, trying to figure out who she was referring to. "Who?" I asked, my curiosity piqued."Bella, let the girl breathe, she just arrived," Jason said, polishing his nails with transparent nail polish.Bella couldn't contain her excitement. "The guy with the Lexus?" she clarified, her tone filled with curiosity.A smile tugged at the corners of my lips as I understood who she meant.

Gianni's POVPsstt," I heard Louis calling from his seat.I turned to face him, a sense of weariness evident in my eyes. "What?" I whispered back, my voice barely audible in the hushed classroom."Let's grab lunch after Mrs. Scarlett's class," Louis suggested, his voice filled with a tinge of excitement.I paused for a moment, contemplating his offer. The thought of food seemed foreign to me, considering the grisly task we had just undertaken. Today, we were tasked with the dissection of dead bodies in our anatomy class,an experience that had left an indelible mark on my psyche."No thank you, Louis," I finally replied, my voice laden with exhaustion. "I won't be able to eat after this."The images of the dissected bodies lingered in my mind, their lifeless forms etched into my memory.

Adrian's POVAs I watched my men restrain the captive, I felt a surge of frustration. The man before me is a potential threat to my operations, and I needed information. The refusal to cooperate only fueled my determination to get what I needed."Is he still refusing to talk?" I asked, my voice tight with tension."Yes, Don," Landon replied, his eyes avoiding direct contact with mine. "He keeps insisting he doesn't know anything." My mind raced with possibilities.
