Thyme Umberbridge looked at their reflection in the windshield, smoothing out their appearance. Today, they managed to gather their resolve to invite Priska Cirillo—a woman they had liked since their first year at high school. A strong woman who succeeded in diverting their world, which had only been concerned with learning and training to prepare themself to become the leader of the Umberbridge mafia organization, replacing their father's position. From Priska, they then met Amanda Chloe—their classmate who was known as a genius pianist (and later he found out that she was the younger sister of Arnold Walter, a hitman from the Walter family whom he has admired for a long time until he followed in his footsteps by honing his skills in shot accurately), and Gerald Tan—Amanda Chloe's childhood friend, who has a housewife-like personality and was now with them in the car after they asked him to accompany them. They were too nervous, not
The sound of the five children running down the hall made Raymond subconsciously give a small smile as he looked at them. The joy of the children seemed to provide a much more pleasant atmosphere amid the crowd of hospital patients, mostly elders. Few patients were the same age as him, and it did not take them to stay long, either. Unlike them. The children laughed loudly before finally falling silent when a female nurse scolded them for making a fuss. Their happy faces faded, followed by their languid heads. He, who had just finished the hospital administration process, only shook his head slowly, approaching the children and also the female nurse who was still busy scolding them with repeated words.'Let them go,' Raymond's left hand moved to caress one of the children's head with long straight hair, dark brown, which was flo
Verdict placed a bouquet of flowers on the tombstone of his adoptive brother, closed his eyes while forming a cross in front of his chest. Beside him, Amanda stood there, staring at the tombstone with the name Arnold Walter engraved. There were no special words engraved on the tombstone other than the name and date of death. His hand looked for Amanda's and held it tightly, calming his girlfriend, who was starting to cry.'Brother. I don't know whether you can hear me or not, but I want to introduce the most special person in my life right now,' he said, glancing at Amanda, who was wiping her tears while sobbing. 'This is Amanda Chloe, your younger sister and my girlfriend. I know what you would say if you were still alive. You definitely won't like it if you know about this. If you are still alive and able to meet Amanda, you
He spent more than two weeks lying in a very uncomfortable hospital bed, staring at the scenery outside the window. He heard the screeching sound of birds perched on one of the windows of his room as if trying to greet him with their innocent faces. He continued to watch the birds until they left the window, following their friends. Next to his bed, he found Hazel, who was slicing an apple for him even though he had refused many times as he had lost his appetite. As soon as she finished peeling, the woman tucked the apple into his mouth. Reluctantly, he devoured the apple, chewed it in silence. 'I respect your decision, Raymond.' He winced in confusion at Hazel's sudden words. Chewing on his apple, he turned his gaze from the window towards the woman who was now giving him a second bite. 'Huh? What are you talking about?' &nbs
It seemed like it was not time for him to die yet. That was the only conclusion he could think of as soon as he opened his eyes, staring at the completely white ceiling of the room. The sunlight that entered the room through the window of his room made his eyes dazzled. There were many life support devices attached to his body, making it difficult for him to move freely. His breathing was a little short due to the mechanical ventilator to help him breathe. His eyes were fixed on a woman dressed as a nurse who was checking his IV line. 'Mr Cooper? Have you regained consciousness?' the woman turned her body, breathed a sigh of relief when she saw him. His eyes were only fixed on the uniform that was so tightly wrapped around the woman's body, exposing the woman's curves. He did not answer the woman's question, closed his eyes again.
Raymond looked at Thyme and Verdict, who were still where they were. Thyme remained calm, although he caught a hint of anxiety on their cute face. Meanwhile, Verdict has lost control of his emotions after seeing one of his members killed by Simon. He was struggling to free himself from Simon's men while continuing to curse Simon. But Simon seemed not to care about Verdict's anger. His other hand, which was not holding the revolver, clenched his hands into fists. He was trying to remain calm against the man, who was still waiting for his answer. "What's the catch?" He remained calm. "If you join me, everyone in this place will be released." Raymond narrowed his eyes, doubting Simon's words, which did not sound convincing in his ears. Simon absolutely did not mention the conditions if he refused the offer. His attention turned to Edward. "I wondered what kind of joke I would have as soon as I came here. Rather, I found something beyond my expectations, eh?" Edward looked up, lo
'Ed, I'm fine. Seriously. So can you stop worrying about me?'Edward ignored his question, still keeping a close eye on his entire body which succeeded in making him feel awkward to death.'This is my fault. I shouldn't have let you fight that person alone,' Edward now pulled his body away from Raymond, took out his hologram tablet, then stared at the screen of his hologram tablet while muttering to himself.'Could I ask you something?''Shoot.''About Mike ... can you t
As soon as the gaseous effect disappeared, Raymond gave the cue to go inside, running while avoiding the gunfire of Simon's men who were manning the passageways they were currently in, along with Edward and Lucas. Meanwhile, the rest have scattered, following his directions. Each of the people he appointed as leader had already brought the tools Hazel had given them as a preventive measure and instructed them to search for the children in the basement while he, Lucas, and Edward moved toward the second floor.'Raymond?' Edward whispered nearby, looking anxious, as soon as they reached the second floor, hiding behind a wall refilling their depleted ammunition.'What?' Raymond peeked outside, to find Simon's men moving their way. He came ou
Raymond turned off the engine, watching Thyme and Verdict, who had entered the building from afar. Thyme asked him to park his car a little bit far from Simon Clive's headquarters, which was now filled with luxury-clad people who flocked into the building, greeted by several people dressed in black with a terrifying aura around them. He recognized some of those who were attacking him when he was with Edward. Over and over he tapped his fingers, frustrated at not knowing Thyme's plans.'Do you want to have some?' Hazel who was sitting behind him handed him the snack bar that the woman had been consuming. 'I made it by myself. Low in calories, but enough to power you up.''No. I don't—' Raymond gave up his refusal as soon as he saw Hazel gl
