Forget the riches and the popularity. Rissa didn't want any of this as much as she wanted her parents to be around the house. She spent most of her childhood surrounded by strangers who only work as staffs in the mansion. There was nothing she could do to prevent them from always leaving her. This was until her mother bailed someone from jail, a young offender whom they had forgotten. A boy who lost his parents at a young age and was left to face the world alone. After so many years, they bring him back into their lives to stay in their house. Mykel is all grown up now, has tattoos, a handsome face, and a clever mind. The first thing Rissa does was to hate him. She called him a jerk and berates him for being an ex-convict. All that changed with time after Rissa fell for him. But Mykel has a grudge that won't go away. A strong zeal to kill and his target was her parents.View More
........Rissa's pov.......My Mykel is alive. He was awake, weak eyes by at least he was breathing and all bandaged.A tear slid from my cheek as he dropped his head sideways to we my face.I skimmed past the nurse and ran to him. With trembling arms and wobbly knees. I held his hand pathetically staring at him."They told me you wouldn't make it and that you had given up. I knew it's not possible..." I said exuberantly.He stared at me blankly like he couldn't understand what I had been saying."Why are you looking at me like that? Have you lost your memory??" I asked wide eyed and he chuckled."Rissa...I was shot on my chest not my head" He winced and I smiled warmly at him.The three nurses clustered behind me gazing at us. Mom and dad were at the door watching.
.........Rissa's pov......He shook his head slowly like he was about to drop a bad news concerning Mykel."Well...unfortunately, i can't disclose what's wrong with him. He's really in a bad condition and we are yet to get through with him" He replied and I sucked in some air.He'll be fine, I'm sure."Although, I fear he won't make it, my dear" He added and my eyes flared in astonishment."Why do you say such??" I rasped as my ears perked up."He's loosing his breath. There's no doubt he's gonna give up soon. And there's nothing we can do about it. We'll just have to accept that the bullet tore him in half.." He informed and mom gasped.I slumped ruefully back on the bench hearing mom sob quietly. I was thrown speechless with what we had just uncovered about his health.He really wants to leave me, doesn't he?
........Rissa's pov......Fear hit me like icy water as Mykel was taken from me. My hands and dress was covered In blood and mom kept dragging me away while I tried holding on persistently.They're taking him away. To the emergency room of course but I still felt like a part of me was been ripped off despite my protests.He wasn't breathing! An alarm rang in my mind.My Mykel wasn't breathing when we arrived.Worry snaked through me as mom sat me down on a bench forcefully.I was barely able to breath with hot tears gathering beneath my eyeballs."Rissa! Look at you. You're covered in blood. What on earth are you doing in Korea???" She fired tapping her hands ruefully on the bench.She had gone on her knees in order for her to see my face since I was gawking at the floor."Mom---" I whispered, disintegrated."Whatever
.........Alex's pov......"So, this is the best you can do?" I asked coyly staring at Lucas as he poured me a glass of wine.He paused and glanced at me."No..." He whispered like he was short of words."You know what? Just take me home" I muttered and he flinched."Oh, come on, Alex. I'm doing all I can to show you that this feelings are not weak. They're strong and it's driving me crazy. I just want to be yours and you'd be mine" He said softly and I sighed."I've never had a boyfriend before, I don't...I don't know what to expect. I want to avoid the problems, Lucas. If the relationship is gonna be toxic or I rather be on my own..." I explained gently."I don't know the best way to show it Alex and I wish I did... But don't leave me hanging, please" He pleaded with a helpless look.I want him too but I don't want to give him the
..........Leah's pov..........I panicked fervently as they started making phone calls.There's no doubt, I'm right!."Edward! There are spies out there. We need to leave this place!" I rasped, perplexed."What are you talking about? I didn't tell anyone we were coming to Korea so how is a plot possible???" He hooted."Will you stop protesting and move this car?!! Don't tell me, you don't value your life!" I blasted and he jerked away from his seat that he was leaning on. The moment he tried getting to the front seat, the men rushed towards us and had us surrounded.The door flung open and one of them raised his shirt coyly for us to see the gun there.It meant two things - don't panic and comply... ........Rissa's pov.......I ran after him as fast as my legs could go. I won't let him leave this place without me. I need to
.........Alex's pov........My eyes fluttered open due to the pecking noise I heard on the window glass. I left the bed moving feebly to it.Most times, I get sensitive while sleeping so I can't go back to bed with so much pecking going on.I pulled the window handles and found a little white bird there with a wrapped note attached to it.Aww! So cute and lovely.I carefully slipped out the note and read through it. This is from Lucas...A good morning message.I smiled.He's got a surprise for me too.What in the world could Lucas possibly give me in order for me to like him back? ........Rissa's pov.......He dropped the bottle on the table and took slow steps towards me."Good morning. I don't know about you but I...I couldn't sleep" He mumbled leaning against the table.
........Rissa's pov.......I looked up and spotted Mykel staring at me. He squirmed out of the bed and took slow steps towards me.When he had gotten close enough, he gently took the gun from me and stepped away."Mykel?" I called stopping him from moving further.I'm sure he knows how absurd this is - to find a gun In his drawer, next to his bed. Is he protecting himself against someone??"How did you get that?" I asked rubbing my hands together. The nervousness I felt was eating me alive."I got it from Mr Frosh. Birthday gift" He mumbled and tossed the gun on the bed.He turned around and sat next to it staring at me."You need It for your work, don't you?" I asked wryly and he let out a soft smile."Come sit down first, there's something I need to clear out..." He beckoned and I ambled towards him.I dropped next to him and I was moved
........Alex's pov........I was on the bed next to mom who had just told me a story she read while I was away. I was starting to get sleepy since it was past my bedtime."...you should see what the doctor did to him. It was so bold and realistic" She remarked cheerfully."I'm glad you enjoyed the book, mom. I've never seen such an avid reader like you are" I chipped and she smiled."That's so sweet. I'll go join your father now. See you tomorrow, Alexandra" She whispered and kissed my forehead.She left the bed and walked out from the room.I smiled and snuggled under the thick duvet.Shoot! I forgot to tell mom about getting my graduation dress - I guess that'll be tomorrow.My phone started ringing shortly and I picked it up without glancing at the screen."Hey, Alex" Lucas said breezily and I heaved a deep sigh of
.......Rissa's pov........Mykel just stood still listening to the man speak. He really didn't say a word till he was done and walked away.Immediately he left, Mykel took my hand and started leading me out of the cinema.He looked a bit tensed up and just wanted to get out of the premises.We got to his car and entered quickly. I was still struggling with my seatbelt when he started the car and zoomed off."Is everything alright?" I asked staring at him."Yes...let's just get home first and do something fun, okay?" He asked and placed a quick kiss on my cheek.I chuckled and leaned back on the car.He's keeping a lot from me, I could feel It right from when he showed up at the auditorium yesterday for my graduation.He just won't say It unless I bugged him."Who's Mr Frosh?" I asked after a short silence and he glanced at me
