How can someone fall in love when they don't even know who they are? At the age of ten, she was left at the orphanage without any recollection of who she was and where she came from. Twenty years later, Clara now the CEO of her own security company, SST, provides top-of-the-line security systems and technology that stamps out the competition. If only they could get the biggest shipping company in the country to upgrade their outdated system. But it seems that the CEO, Sebastian Colfer, will do everything to thwart their efforts. Or so it seems. Behind his icy demeanor, he has a hidden agenda. The mystery surrounding her appearance at the orphanage keeps her busy these days, and having somebody in her life is not part of her plan. ---=--- This book is purely fictional. Any similarities with people in real life are purely coincidental. ---=--- Sitting in the back seat of the car, Clara could feel the heat emanating from his body. His legs were spread out a little too wide, and they were rubbing against her outer thigh. She tried not to let it affect her, but his arm seemed to graze hers every time the car moved, and that unnerved her a little. They were sitting a little too close if you asked her. She tried to get away from him, as far as the space could allow, but her brother won't cooperate. He scolded her to stop squirming. She was just trying to find a comfortable position that would keep their body parts from touching. Sebastian was tormenting her and she's had enough, elbowing her brother she told him to switch places with her. ‘Are you scared of me?’ Sebastian whispered.

I love the tension between Clara and Sebastian. Seeing how he went from provoking her to wanting to woe her, they'd definitely make a cute couple. Love it!

1 - Installation
Clara Johnson was attaching the last advanced RFID* sticker to the last post in the room. She finished the first three earlier and noticed someone was observing her every move. Max and Jeremy finished with this room a while ago. They changed all the cameras, replacing them with the new motion sensor, nocturnal, night vision security cameras with a wide range view. It was now her turn to add the finishing touches and wake up the security system.She first noticed him watching her from behind another desk. ‘This man would either be the head of security or the President himself.’ Clara came to this conclusion because people around them avoided him like the plague. To avoid being obvious that she knew he was staring, she looked everywhere else but at him and gave him the name, “Peeping Tom." She didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of knowing that he unnerved her. ‘It doesn’t matter. I know what I’m doing, even with my eyes closed.’ This technology, developed in their own facilit

2 - At the Office (1)
“Hmph! That was impressively fast,” Clara smiles to herself. She got a good look when she stared “Peeping Tom” down and learned her assumption was correct. He was the President of Navio International, Sebastian Colfer. Who wouldn’t recognize him, he was in every business magazine in the country. She also realized that he was still staring at her, very intently and with a sinister smile on his face.She ignored him too and went about her business. As she stuck the last RFID inside the room, she noticed a pair of feet right in front of her. ‘Here’s another pervert. Do I need to take care of you too?’ she wondered. Looking at the man’s shoe size, he was probably around 6 feet tall. It will be a bit harder to ward him off because of his height, but she knows she can easily block his advances.“What was that sticker for?” The man asks. She looks up from the floor. ‘Dammit, it’s the President.’“Sir, we’ve explained the process in the docket that Max handed to you this morning. We will

3 - At the Office (2)
Sebastian was impressed. The new technology SST developed was unproven, but it looked very promising. His decision to sign up with their company pleased him.Having motion sensor control and a wide-angle lens for the cameras was an enormous improvement over the old security system. It was cost-effective and covered every area that had blind spots before.Sebastian received a call from SST earlier that there was a last-minute change with the crew assigned to do the installation. He didn’t really care who came to do the work, as long as Clara would be there as promised.He was getting worried but he didn’t only have one, but three of the SST executives at his behest, ready to answer all of his questions.It surprised Sebastian that the top dogs were doing the installation themselves. He thought they had people for that, but it showed how knowledgeable they were about their own product, and how dedicated they were to a job done right. Clara piqued his interest, and he couldn’t wait to kn

4 - At the Restaurant (1)
The trio headed back to their hotel and had lunch at the cafe across the street, nothing special. They were saving space for the scrumptious dinner they were having that evening. And because Sebastian was buying, the brothers were thinking of ordering their most expensive steak.After checking their pending emails and calling the office for any updates, they took a quick nap afterward. The siblings wanted to have enough energy for their nighttime activity, and waking up for the first flight that morning zapped their energy.“Hey guys, I want to be there at 6:30, so we can take pictures. I want to show those guys back home where we’re going,” Max reminds them as they got ready. Max always acts like he is still in college, hanging out with his friends. At SST, the policy required everyone to dress business casual most days. Being partial owners allowed them to occasionally break the rules.The unofficial rule was, as long as they didn’t come wearing pajamas and beach attire, the staff

5 - At the Restaurant (2)
Earlier, Sebastian thought Clara looked pretty up close, but that was a weak word to describe her. To him, she was nothing short of stunning. It felt like he always knew that whatever she'd wear would captivate him. Clara was wearing ankle-length skinny red pants that highlighted her long legs and showed off her assets. She paired it with a silky white sleeveless top that showed off her toned arms. On her feet, she wore black strappy sandals that gave 3 extra inches to her height. She was now almost up to his eye level, and he liked the option that he could probably kiss her much easier from this height. He smiled. Sebastian thought she looked spectacular. Her hair was curled up to one side and held up by a big sparkly comb at her nape, exposing her neck. He shakes his head when he heard himself thinking of nibbling on her neck. ‘These thoughts have to stop before I do something stupid.’ “Hey, do you want me to take the picture for you?” Sebastian volunteers, smiling at all of the

6 - Dinner and Drinks
At the dinner table, after a round of pleasant conversation, talking about each company’s history, and the wonderful California weather, Sebastian tried to fish for more information about Clara’s relationship status. He needed to know how closely connected she and Max were. To see if he was going to be his competition.“So tell me,” he was focusing on Clara again, “Are you dating anybody right now?” he stared straight into her eyes, urging her to give him a straight answer.“I don’t divulge personal information to business partners,” Clara said, not backing down from his challenge.“So if I cancel your project,” he smiled sheepishly, “You’ll give me the answer?”Max and Jeremy laughed out loud without meaning to. “Oh, for fuck’s sake, no need to cancel anything. She’s single right now. No boyfriend or dates recently either. Clara loves calla lilies, although she insists flowers are not her thing,” enumerated Max.“Traitors!” Clara said as she coughed into her hand. ‘These idiots kee

Suddenly Celine felt this prickling sensation behind her neck, as if someone was watching. So she looked around, and her heart skipped a beat when she saw it was her mystery guy in the dark suit. She stared right back, issuing a challenge. ‘Hey there. Took you forever to notice me,’ she thought. ‘Let’s see who gives up first?’ She raised an eyebrow, and he grinned, so she smiled back. Celine felt like some communication passed between them in the few seconds they stared at each other.‘He has a cute smile, maybe I will say hi… later,’ she smiled again as she averted her eyes, playing coy. Celine never had luck finding anyone in the club. Most men wanted hookups and booty calls, something to boost their egos. Half of them are probably married, trying to get an easy lay. ‘What made me think this is going to be different? Oh well, we’ll find out later.’ She took one more glance, before turning and began listening to the conversations happening around her.After playing what seems like

Max was content to stare at Celine while she fiddled with his phone. Celine, on the other hand, kept scrolling through the names on Max’s phone and found that Lana was the most frequently dialed number. So she secretly added another Lana entry with her number in it. ‘Heh! You don't get my number that easily. I'll let you figure that out later,’ Celine smiled, pleased with herself. “Heeeey! What are you smiling at?” Max peered over his phone.“Don’t give me your boss’ phone number or your favorite chicken restaurant, okay?” He looked at the number she was entering and saw it had the area code for San Diego, but he was suspicious because of her smile.Celine grins. “I promise I wouldn't do that to you." Max looked at her with doubt as he took his phone to look at it."Here, let me dial my number, so you’d know I’m telling the truth." Celine did not want him to find out her secret so she tapped the entry on his phone. Max felt reassured when he heard her phone ring, so he disconnect

9 - Sister
Clara remembered something from her childhood. A sister. They were running away from the nanny. She was upset with them for avoiding bath time. In her memory, she and her sister were laughing out loud, the exact way Celine was laughing right now. She laughed with a distinct sound that brought back all their childhood memories.Jeremy, the ever-attentive brother, noticed Clara before anybody else did when she was not laughing. He was surprised that tears ran down his sister’s face when everyone else was laughing. So he hugged Clara to shield her from everyone’s view and walked away with her face tucked into his shoulder. “It’s going to be okay. We're getting out of here,” he whispered in Clara’s ear.“Uhm... I think she ate something bad. She’s not feeling well. We’ll come back right away,” Jeremy said to the group, his back turned, shielding Clara from their eyes.Sebastian noticed Clara almost the same time Jeremy did, but he did not know what was happening, and his reaction was a

10 - Backstory (1)
Max found Jeremy and Clara huddled in the gardens, sitting on a bench hidden behind an enormous planter. Clara, though quieter now, was still crying in Jeremy’s arms.“What happened?” Max asked while crouching and rubbing Clara’s hair, “What triggered the tears? Is she okay?”“I'm not sure. But I think it was Celine." Max's brows furrowed."You made her laugh, and something about the sound brought back all her memories.”“Clara kept repeating the phrase, "Celine is my sister." Do you think it’s true?”“We have to look into it. It might be the piece of the puzzle we were looking for.”“We’ve been looking for stories of ten-year-old girls being kidnapped, and we always came up empty. Maybe we should investigate Celine, her family background, to see if she has any siblings. Maybe she plays an integral part in all this.”‘Fuck, I just met her, and we’re already entangled in this stupid mess. I want to be selfish and hope that Clara, for once, is wrong about something. But I want her to hav
