About the Author￼A college girl living in Bulacan, Philippines, who enjoys writing fictional stories ever since she was young. Anne Cunanan is a starting author who likes to write during her free time although she barely has any. She usually publishes her stories on Wattpad, but she also has a lot of stories that she keeps in private. She writes as a hobby because this is something she enjoys, not for fame nor fortune. Although her stories are not that well known, she hopes that those who have read them were inspired to write and dream. She likes to create characters that are relatable for people so that they can easily place themselves in the characters' shoes and pretend as if they are a part of the stories she creates.To see in the eyes of the characters is the key to a great book.
If it was not for Scion University I would not have met Athena Calleen Vandia.Then again, if it were not for the same university, I would not have broken up with her nor operate on her. A lot of things would not have happened.I wouldn't have had two kids sitting on my lap.I wouldn't have such a beautiful wife.I wouldn't have such a great family."Babe, Edward said he is coming over today, it's his freedom anniversary," Cana called out behind one of the huge blankets. It was Sunday, family day, and as usual, we spent our morning at our backyard where Cana would be hanging out clothes. The maids could have done it but when she was free, she always insisted on doing some of the house chores."Uncle Edward is coming over?" Andrea smiled."Is he? Is he?" Adeline jumped down from my lap.The twins smiled widely at me, they were only turning four next year, yet they could speak so fluentl
“Mr. Juarez, what are your thoughts on marrying my only daughter, Cana?""Sir, Pardon?" my eyes widened at Mr. Vandia, my employer.Tonight, was the 62nd annual anniversary of the Vandia Corporation. I became a registered surgeon today and they had just announced it to everyone at the party. Right after I got off the stage, Mr. Juarez invited me to seat with him and his wife.I had not said a single word when Mr. Vandia suddenly asked that question. I was left stunned while the couple stared at me widely, most likely hoping for a positive answer.Almost four years passed, and I was never able to forget Athena Calleen Vandia. I tried to date other women, I tried to drink her away, I tried to overwork myself but none of it helped in taking her off my head. As if that was not enough, now, I was being offered to marry her.When Mr. Vandia realized I was speechless, he spoke again, "We want you to take over the com
The snow welcomed me on the day I was finally released.My parents did not want to let me go until I was fully recovered so I had to stay for a total of two weeks in the hospital. They had wanted me to stay for one more week, but I had been calling my dad, complaining, so they decided to let me go. On top of that, they did not allow me to handle any sort of work, they postponed all my projects.Who wouldn't be mad in such a situation?I rolled down the car window and took a deep breath despite the cold. Chase was the one driving and Ace was at the shotgun seat, I had the back all to myself."Put that down," Ace ordered.Both of them were so protective of me throughout the whole way, it was as if at any second, another gunner would come and shoot me, but I knew nothing like that would happen again."You guys are so tense," I laughed at the two of them, leaving the car window open.
Ace looked like he just got through hell.His face was bloodied and bruised, his hair was all over his forehead, sweaty and sticky. He had a gun on his right hand and his left was bald in a fist. There was a gash on the top of his left eyebrow, dried blood stained it.His white shirt was dirtied, blood in some places, and shoe marks as well. There was a knife cut on his left chest, but it did not seem deep because the blood seeping through had already dried up as well. I could feel that his lower body was equally messed up, but his jeans had covered it well."Ace," I said but it came out as a croak.He scanned me with concern but in a blink of an eye, it turned into a bloodshot glare. He scowled at Mr. Macklet who was staring at him in disbelief."I dare you to fucking kick her again," he aimed the gun straight at Mr. Macklet and his guards stood in front of him protectingly."If you pull the
“We're sorry it took that long."Edward shook his head, smiling widely, "Still that was quite a heist.""A human heist, if that is actually a thing," Ace joined."Food? Anyone?" I asked when the seatbelt lights turned off."I'm good," Edward smiled before he started to look out the window, he was admiring the clouds. I could not blame the guy; he had been locked up in that room for ten years. It was better to leave him alone for a little while."I'll join you," Ace immediately stood up and followed me to the tail of the plane.The last time we got in this plane the fridge was filled with food but right now, if it was even possible, there was more food in it. It had about three tubs of ice cream, a variety of yogurt, cookies, sodas, boxes of iced tea drinks, candies, gummy bears, and others I could not even name."Do you think Blake always keeps a stash of food here?" I asked."Prob
Iwoke up to the smell of pancakes.I was expecting my lower body to be aching, but I was glad that it did not. We have a long day planned for us and I cannot afford to have any sorts of body ache.Today, Edward can finally leave his cell, well, not technically leave because we are breaking him out."Babe, you feeling good? I have Tylenol if you need it," Ace made his way towards me when he realized I was already awake.It looks like he had already taken a shower. He was wearing a black turtleneck with dark blue jeans. His hair was messy, it has not been combed yet and he was barefooted.He sat by the side of the bed and gave me a peck on the forehead followed by a smile."Did I become better?" he asked, cheekily and I rolled my eyes."Nah, worse actually," I laughed, and he pouted like a kid.I finally got out of bed only to realize I was only wearing an ove
My lips went dry."I-"My mind went haywire. In just a second, thousands of thoughts ran through my head. We wanted to talk about the same topic, I was prepared for that topic, and yet here I was speechless. I could not even move."Vandia, I... I know it is too late to tell you my side of the story but before I do, tell me why, why you didn’t give me a chance?" Ace paused and gave me a bleak look which sent a pang of pain in my chest. I felt regret. I let the silence hang in the air for a few more seconds before finally responding."Ace, I was mad. Anger got the best of me. I was stuck in the thinking that you left me when I needed you the most, I hated you, I hated your guts," I halted to take in a breath."I needed you Ace, I wanted your assurance, I wanted your comfort but all I got was a coward, someone who wanted to back off, someone-""Accepting reality is an act of bravery," he stated."Your life was on the
In the end, I had let him drive.He headed towards my favorite pasta shop in the vicinity since he said he would eat wherever I liked. I always ate at that place after visiting the site so some of the waiters already knew me. Today, Justin, a guy who was probably around my age and had also come from America served us."Miss Vandia, it is nice to see you back again and it seems that you have brought a friend," he noticed Ace who was sitting across from me."Yes, though I won't stay long.""Oh, that's a pity," Justin frowned."I'd like the usual and my friend will have-""Your fiancéewill have Ragu Napoletano, thank you," he gave the menu back to Justin who forced out a smile and took it."I didn't know you were into waiters," he commented when Justin had left, and my face immediately creased. It sounded offending as if people with such jobs do not deserve being loved or liked.&nb
