- BACK AT IVY'S MANSION -"Where is Chloe?" Stone asked Astrid and hoped he wouldn't ask again; he didn't care about all the nonsense she had going on with Ivy. Now that he knew Ivy was alive, he had something to prove to Emily. He had spent his life taking orders from Travis, and he wasn't going to continue taking orders.Chloe was here for him even though she tried not to say it; she was here for him, and he couldn't just leave her like that after Astrid just told him she was stabbed by Kyle. Why would Kyle stab her? Didn't she have a thing going on with Kyle, and even if he didn't like her, it wouldn't have warranted him to stab her, or was there more to the story that he wasn't getting at all?"Stone, listen to me," Astrid pleaded as Stone dashed out of the bathroom, and it dawned on Astrid that her plan in her head wasn't going to happen as Stone was not going to pay any attention to her."Don't let me repeat myself.""She is in the warehouse," Astrid said as she watched Sto
- LEONARD'S MANSION -- LEONARD'S OFFICE -"Dark Age are willing to accept the partnership deal," Mark informed Leonard in his office. He had driven here immediately after he got the paper work.Leonard stared at the paperwork they had mailed to the company, and it was well-detailed. Whoever wrote it took their time in such a way that every offer that looked unprofitable had a comeback to back it up.Dark Age and Klar had been in the fashion industry for so long that, at some point, Klar had offered to buy Dark Age. Buying companies wasn't a new thing for Leonard, especially companies he felt were going to ruin his business or become a competition for him in the future.All he had to do was find out how much their company would cost and double the price. This way, the price was too good for anyone in their right minds to refuse it, but this company, Dark Age, had refused his offer without a reason, and even when he tripled it, they still rejected it, which only angered him.He had imm
"Hey!" Astrid yelled at Chloe as they pushed her into the ward. Where the fuck was Stone, and why wasn't he answering his darn phone? Hopefully, nothing will happen to Chloe, she thought. As she paced around in the reception with her blood-stain gown, she could see someone staring at her."What?" she asked as the person looked away. She rolled her eyes and tried to dial Stone's number again, and this time it went through, but she couldn't hear him properly; all she could hear were faint sounds of gunshots. Where was he? Was he okay? Did he even pick up the call, or was it a mistake?"Get Chloe out of the hospital now," she said, finally hearing Stone's voice."Hello," she said, but the phone disconnected. What did he mean by getting Chloe out? Was he in trouble? How did he know she was in the hospital? Astrid stared at her phone and dialed his number again, but this time the line didn't go through."Fuck!" she yelled, going to the reception desk to talk to the nurse. "How long will t
"Kyle," Chloe said, staring at him as they swayed around the dance floor swiftly. She kept her eyes fixed on him, but the young man didn't say anything, or was she wrong? She was not wrong because she knew what she was feeling right now, and only someone had that effect on her. How is he here now? She knew he was alive, but he had been in hiding for so long that Thana and she were forced to hide Nathan. At some point, they felt that he didn't even want Nathan, and he never reached out to them again.The music was finally coming to an end as the man pulled her closer to him. He placed his lips on her ear, and she could feel his breath on the tip of her ear and a tingling erupt in her stomach. It was Kyle."You shouldn't be here, Anna," she heard him say as the music came to an end before she could process what he had said. The music came down as the lights went dark, then back to its normal color as Kyle was nowhere to be found. Chloe stared around, perplexed, looking for any sign of
Chloe looked around through her lashes; she could see someone familiar again. She stared towards Stone, and he was dancing with Astrid, and the bitch seemed to know how to dance better than her. She watched Astrid sway her waist to the music as she leaned in, whispering something into Stone's ear as he burst into laughter instantly with his head laid back.Chloe wondered what Astrid had told him that was so funny that he wanted to cry from laughing. She could also be funny if that was what he was into."Someone seems to have your man on a hook."'He is not mine,' Chloe was about to say, but she couldn't because Travis thought that they were both here to spend time together. She had to play her part and keep Travis out of what was about to occur here, but from the situation, it seemed she had to get to that person because Stone and Astrid seemed focused on whatever nonsense they were discussing.The music tone changed again, and this time Chloe swayed into the arms of the person her in
Chloe, Astrid, and Stone walked into a masked ball, both ladies holding on to his side as they scanned the environment."Are you sure you are a size 8? This gown is fucking annoying," Astrid snapped. Despite her insistence to go home and change, Stone told her they didn't have time. He asked Chloe to help find her something more comfortable to wear. She hissed at the thought that Chloe probably did this intentionally to hurt her."Relax, ladies, we are here to look for root, and it will be best if we behave for the next few hours," Stone cautioned, placing a kiss on each of their cheeks. "She is going to be wearing a red dress, but sometimes she might be a.""Who the fuck are we looking for, a man or a woman?""An alpha female," Stone replied, leaving the two ladies. They had already discussed the plan and how it would play out. He suspected that this root was Ivy, but he wasn't sure. But when he explained it in full detail to Astrid, she was sure this root was Ivy, as the stories she
LEONARD'S MANSION"Where is our daughter?" Alex asked as calmly as he could, he couldn't believe his wife would connive with their children to play a fast one on him. When he got off the airplane, he got a phone call from Bianca that their spoilt little brat had tried to kill herself by slitting her wrist. He had been outraged by the news and could barely believe it when he finally got to the hospital and was told his family had discharged Bella.As if that wasn't enough, he got home only to find out that neither his wife nor his daughter were around but had rather gone to stay with Leonard. To top it all up, his daughter wasn't there."She went out," Bianca said. She had invited Alex in, but he was refusing to enter his own son's house. Since Leonard left their house a long time ago, Alex had never stepped foot into his house. It was shocking to see him here, as Bianca thought he would call over the phone. She could have stayed back at the house, but she wasn't ready to listen to h
"She is pregnant," Emily announced, knowing fully well that if she didn't, the doctor coming with the report would, and that would be another case entirely."For Cam?" Bianca stared at her daughter. "Is that why you did this? Bella, we all love you and Cam, and you don't need to be scared of anything. I will talk to your father about it. Nothing will happen to you or your baby."Bianca couldn't believe her daughter was expecting a baby, she knew this day would come, but not like this. Alex was coming soon, and he was already angry at the fact that Bella tried to kill herself. The last thing she needed was for him to know Bella was also pregnant with Cam's baby.She had thought he was supportive of her relationship with Cam, but it seemed he was only interested in his ambitions, he already planned for her to be married to one of his business associates.Bianca didn't understand why he would favor an outsider when Cam was a close relative and thus would only strengthen their bond more.
When Chloe woke up, it was daybreak, and she noticed the note Stone left for her. She was about to go through it when Stone walked in with a lady."I thought you said she was sleeping," the lady said, staring at Chloe as she walked to the bathroom, not saying anything to Chloe.Stone closed the door behind him and walked up to Chloe. He stared at her injury, and she seemed okay. He had been so worried about her that he decided to come back to the hotel and handle things here.It wasn't like she wasn't going to eventually find out, as it seemed her mission here was to know what he was up to."How are you feeling?""Who is she?" Chloe muttered. Ah right, he had forgotten women were never like men. He could only hope these two ladies would cooperate because, now that he thought about it, they both shared the same attitude."My name is Astrid," Astrid replied, coming out of the bathroom. "Help me, don't just stand there," she barked at Stone as she struggled to get out of bed, he offere
