Chapter 1
? Adrian's POV? I stepped down from the plane, I knew immediately that my life is going to change for the better. My chest tightened as I smelled the not too familiar air of New York after 11 years of leaving home. I tightened my grip on my bag and continued walking to see the familiar face that will welcome me back home. I know my family will miss me... I mean why won't they, it's been 11 years but I'm certain not all of them will. As I walked, I heard the sweetest voice I missed calling my name."Adrian", I recognized the voice immediately and smiled. I turned my head to the direction of the voice and I saw him, my twin, Aiden. He is taller than I am with black hair and blue eyes like mine. He was wearing a green shirt and a pair of black trousers with a pair of black shoes. His smile was so heart warming and welcome. I had to walk faster because I can't wait to hug my crazy twin brother whom I misse

? Adrian's POV ?I saw that one person I no longer consider family....My father.He is a man with dark hair and brown eyes. He was putting on a black suit with a blue shirt and a pair of black shoes. He was talking to a maid and when he noticed me, he looked up at me. He gave the suitcase to the maid and dismissed her then he moved closer to me."Adrian", he called with his thick voice. "You are back.""Yes, I am. I'm back from the prison you sent me to", I said and I started to walk but stopped when I heard him talk again."You know that is a rude way to talk to your father."I turned to look at him and said sarcastically, "I'm sorry, Mr Kendall. I meant to say, I'm back from the 11 years adventure." I rolled my eyes and walked away from him. I didn't look back but I know it hurts him to hear me talk to him like that but I don't care because he didn't care about me 11 years ago when he believed when Karen

? Adrian's POV ?Seeing the painting on Dad's table brought tears to my eyes but I quickly pushed it back because I know I'm not a coward and I don't want to look vulnerable. I can't forgive him easily.Aiden looked at me when he heard me sniff and mouthed "what's wrong?""Nothing", I replied and he nodded.Dad turned to look at us and began. "I'm sorry for keeping you waiting. I had to check those documents."I rolled my eyes because I don't get why I should care about him checking the company's paper work."Aiden, I want you to brief Adrian about the school and tell her all she needs to bring along. I won't really have a free time again this week that's why I called you today. I want you to guide your sister well and take good care of her.""No need to tell me Dad, I will take care of Adrie just like an older brother should", Aiden said and poked me to make me laugh and I did."Okay", Dad said and

"There is no way this is yours. A man's cologne is on it. Who owns it?""It's just someone I met at the cemetery this morning", I said and explained everything to him."Wow.

? Adrian's POV ?I woke up feeling a heavy hand on me. I opened my eyes and saw Aiden sleeping peacefully beside me. He was very handsome even with his messy hair falling on his face. Then I remembered when Mum came into the room yesterday, she was worried. I pushed the thought to the back of my mind and woke Aiden."Aid", I called shaking him gently. "Wake up. It's morning.""I don't want to. I still want to sleep", he responded still sleepy."No, you won't. We have to go to school.""I don't feel like going to school. Let's just take the day off.""No, we won't take the day off. Get up", I said pulling him but he didn't respond. I went to the bathroom and put water in my right hand and placed the left hand under it. I went back to the room and sprinkle the water on him."Hey. What's that for?", he said jumping out of bed."It's for you to wake up out of your sleep and get ready for school", I said
