I am Summer Ramey-Carter, surrounded by opulence, beauty, and acclaim. The spotlight is already on me. However, beneath the mask that conceals, what do I so desperately desire that is not yet mine? The answer is Steven Carter’s heart. My husband who both detests and abhors me. When his childhood sweetheart returns, he presents me with our three-year marriage with the divorce papers as a gift. He doesn’t mind that it is our anniversary. “Let’s divorce and end this marriage, Summer.” I am already ready to accept the painful and bitter reality. Nonetheless, faith seems to have another plan when unexpectedly—I lose my memories.View More
Summer’s Point of ViewAs Steven’s image materialized before me, a sudden chill swept over me, causing my stomach to knot up. The sight before me was gruesome - blood was splattered all over the floor and someone lay motionless in the midst of it all. Without a moment’s hesitation, Stefani dashed towards the person and I followed suit, trying my best to keep my balance as I ran.“S-Steven!” I cried out. “C-call an ambulance!”I held him on my lap while scanning the area for Brandon, who was frantically speaking on his phone. Despite his anxious stare at Stefani and me, my attention was solely focused on Stefani, who was watching the situation.My hands trembled, and my thoughts were jumbled. I couldn’t decide who to prioritize first between Stefani and Steven. In the midst of my confusion, Celine unexpectedly appeared.“Summer!” She came running towards us and picked up Stefani in her arms. “Aunty’s here. Don’t cry,” she said soothingly.Tears blurred my vision as I gazed at her, my f
Summer’s Point of View“Maxine,” Steven called out in a throaty voice. “Have you forgotten the rule I imposed on this city?”Maxine appeared frightened by what Steven had said, which reminded me of Missus Turner’s warning, not to mention Matteo’s name. Her face turned pale, indicating her fear. She took a step back and glared at me with anger, although she seemed to be trying to restrain herself.“Neither of you should remain in this building any longer. You both need to leave now!”“But Steven—”“Amby, don’t force me to call the authorities and have them remove you. I explicitly asked you to avoid causing chaos, yet you continue to test my patience.” With a tight jaw and a piercing stare, he expressed his resentment towards them. “Leave!”As Steven’s voice reverberated through the cavernous walls, Amby and Maxine instinctively shrank back, their bodies tensing with unease. His words seemed to shake the very foundation of the room, causing them to hastily retreat, their footsteps echo
Steven’s Point of ViewFrom the moment I laid eyes on her, I knew she was someone special. Her complexion was as pure as paper, with natural pink lips and high cheekbones that complemented her beauty. Whenever she smiled, her eyes sparkled, and her eyelashes spoke a thousand words. She was like a white lotus that everyone desired, and I was one of those guys who sought her from the very start.She and I were different in many ways. Her family was a large firm, while mine was just starting out, perhaps just average. She was a social butterfly with many friends, and I was an extrovert who disliked people because of their fake personalities, as they were all concerned about social status. However, she was different from them. She had a genuine smile and her interactions with people were pure. She was down-to-earth, but as the heiress of the Ramey family, people had misconceptions about her.They believed she had a harsh and distant demeanor, but I knew otherwise from the moment I saw her
Steven’s Point of View[7 years ago]I was in awe as I gazed up at the towering skyscraper that loomed over the city. The glass walls of the building reflected the bustling landscape around it, creating a kaleidoscope of colors that dazzled my eyes. As I stood there, I felt a mix of excitement and anticipation for this upcoming wedding. I knew that this marriage would not only bring me bliss but also the opportunity to seek revenge against the person responsible for my parents’ untimely death.I was filled with an intense determination that flowed through my veins. I was now prepared to conquer the world and grab everything that had been denied to me before. I was determined to leave nothing behind, not a penny or even a shred of dignity for that man. I planned to take away everything from him - his wealth, fame, family, and even… his lover. Nothing would be left behind.“Mr. Carter, are you absolutely certain that you don’t want to meet her before the wedding?” Brandon inquired.“No.
Summer’s Point of ViewThe announcement made by Amby left the people in shock, and they started creating a commotion. After that, she proceeded to move towards the stage and fixated her gaze on Steven.“Steven, you can’t do this to me!” she roared. “I waited for you for over seven years after you broke up with me and announced that you were getting married to someone else! And now you’re telling me you have a family while I’m here still suffering?!”“Stop,” Steven warned in a cold tone. “You should reconsider what you’re about to say, Amby.”“Why?! Are you afraid that they will know you slept with me after your wife left you?!”“I said stop!”“No, I won’t stop!” She burst into tears suddenly. “Steven, why can’t you love me? You slept with me when you were already married. Isn’t that supposed to be love?”The murmuring grew so loud that the crowd became uncontrollable. Each person was offering their own commentary on the situation.“Is this true? Did he actually cheat?’‘But they were
[Note: Matteo's sister is Maxine, guys! I'm sorry I didn't notice early. I have already edited the names. Thank you for noticing!]~~~~~~~~~~~Summer’s Point of ViewAlthough Amby seemed to have shed a considerable amount of weight, her physique remained well-toned. Her attire effectively camouflaged any perceivable alterations, and she had expertly concealed her once-dominant eye bulge with cosmetics. Her professionalism in her line of work was truly admirable, and she deserved recognition for it.Standing next to me, Steven held Stefani in his arms as we watched Maxine and Amby walking towards us. Amby had a sincere smile on her face while Maxine looked genuinely happy, but it was clear to me that their happiness was fake. As they approached us, I felt Steven’s strong arms wrap around me, and his breath brushed against my cheek.“I will protect you this time…” he whispered.I remained still as a gentle hand caressed my heart, and for the first time, I sensed sincerity in him. Nevert
Summer’s Point of View Following the confrontation, Steven and I avoided each other for the entire day, despite being under the same roof. I confined myself to my room and only opened the door when Stefani arrived. Since I knew of her fondness for Steven, I didn’t make a big deal out of it when she left to see him after changing her uniform. Time flew by and before I knew it, evening had arrived, and I realized I needed to get ready. “I’m so excited, mom!” Stefani claimed. As I carefully placed the Sequin Puff sleeves white dress on her, my hand lingered in the air for a moment. The dress shimmered in the soft light of the room, reflecting its sequins with every movement. Memories flooded my mind as I recalled her excitement when she first mentioned Steven’s wife would be attending this event. “Sweetie, what did you mean when you said you know Steven’s wife? Did he tell you who she is?” “Yes!” I felt a lump form in my throat as I gulped down the nervousness that had taken hold of
Steven’s Point of View“Grandpa can’t be serious, can he?” Summer’s expression was filled with disbelief. “I mean, there’s no way he’s actually going to transfer all his assets to me just because I can’t make it to the anniversary celebration, right?”I stared at her in shock, my eyes fixed on her face. “I’m not sure, Summer. Grandpa was a man of few words, but when he said something, he always followed through.”“T-then, what are we going to do?” she asked, her voice trembling with fear. Despite my grandpa’s threat, she didn’t back down. “I can’t go to the party. I know what could happen.”We exchanged hesitant looks, uncertain of what to do next. I was torn between not wanting to be pushy and my desire to have her and Stefani join me in reintroducing ourselves to the world. People knew of her, but were oblivious to the fact that she had already made a comeback. As my eyes fixated on her face, I couldn’t help but notice the fear etched across her features. In that moment, I felt a s
Steven’s Point of ViewAfter that night, Summer’s anger towards me had subsided, but she still made it clear that she despised me. She would often confront me face to face, her eyes filled with rage as she spoke. Though her words stung, I couldn’t help but relish in the attention she was giving me, like a child seeking validation.“Steven, I already asked you to get the water. I’m repeating myself here. Do I need to remind you every day so you get into the habit of doing this?” she yelled, exasperated.“I apologize, madame,” I taunted. “Rest assured, I’ll remember it next time.”I stole a quick glance at her, only to be met with a piercing glare and a roll of her eyes. Her sudden shift of focus to Stefani changed her expression to a softer one. I could see her smile as she placed a generous portion of food on Stefani’s plate. The sound of her spoon clanging against the porcelain echoed in the room as I patiently waited for her to serve me as well. However, she seemed to have completel
