With the wedding theme of like mystical fore
“HOW long has it been since then, Leo?”The expected meeting, but the unexpected expression and tone that is in a mix of disappointment and anger that Cath is showing right in front of him. Left alone in the headmistress office and at first glance they are seem to share a casual tea time. He looks down, not in shame, but a bit of worry from how things unfolded. Which makes him think if he is regretting his decision of giving Cath a clue about the past.“Or should I call you now with your known name, Aaron?”“Tell me, do you hate me that much after what you have learn, Cath?”“Hate you? Why should I? You didn’t do anything to me which needed me to resent you. Instead I am the one who should be asking you of that question, for I failed to recognize my old friend.”Old friend. The words that means more than the shallow meaning of it. Words that will disappoint anyone, for it means more than just a rejection, but a total abandonment towards someone who only thinks about one person and dea
MORE than being stripped of everything that he had, Harry is slapped with the truth and faces the wrath of Adriella in her calm demeanor whom everyone knows that it is worse than a tyrant in that kind of mood. “You do not need to explain anything to me but sign the divorce papers, right now.”“I-I…”Definitely shaking within his wits, Harry couldn’t even utter a single word nor look at the face of his mother-in-law worst towards Lindsey whose expression is indistinguishable for lacking nothing to see. Worst with the atmosphere in the room that is getting heavy and dreadful upon their conversation that a while back is going smoothly and just like always. Only to be struck by the divorce papers and the secret that Harry is been hiding for almost a month now. “I stayed quiet and compose for the sake of Lindsey. But since it all comes to this and the fact that you are caught red-handed. There is no need for further discussion.”“But I… I only did it once, or maybe twice or thrice, but t
“WILL this be alright?”Lindsey’s worry and her thoughts about what Sam decided upon after what happened. Hiding the fact that they were kidnaped. Letting Jun handle the rest with the pieces of evidence at hand and the new ones that were suddenly sent to them just a while back. With all of them know that it was from Beatrice, leaving Francis in the air and saving herself. “This is better and the appropriate thing that we should all do.”Cath seconded, forcing everyone to have this talk and all from Sam’s protest. With her injuries and critical state in the first few hours after they are saved. Luckily Cole wasn’t hurt in any way nor the child is traumatized. But make sure, Sam sends his son to the psychiatrist, and is currently under the care of Adriella. Lindsey recovers fast, and can now move on her own, unlike Cath. “Let’s just leave it to Jun and Nadia. They both know what to do.”She added, hiding the fact that she doesn’t want Sam to know about the organization that Francis on
DAMN alive and still breathing despite his injuries and the gunshot that he just receives from Aaron a while back. Francis stands before Cath, with his gun up a bit shaking from his wound, but directly pointing it towards her. “I may stupidly fail at first, but this time I will not fail to end your life. You who put me behind bars, Catherine Wayne.”“Cath!”Two familiar voices echo in the air, but before Cath could look and see for herself who could those two people be? Francis fired his gun, missing Cath’s vital spot from his shaking hand due to his injuries. Yet still, inflict Cath with another injury and a gunshot to her left arm. Stumbling backward made her lose her footing and leads her to fall to the cliff.“Damn! Just die!”Two gunshot echoes, now directly to Francis's legs leaving him impaired and down helpless. “You cannot save her, she is gone! You failed to save your girl, Samuel Lawrence!”Consumed with anger, Sam clenches his hands tight, yet he didn’t blow up on Franci
STARTLED and quickly stops in her tracks, now standing and still. Lindsey instructed Cole to close his eyes and cover his ears. Do not let go no matter what happens and wait for her to say so. “Do you understand, Cole?”“Alright, aunt Lindsey.”The little boy replied and quickly borrow his face to Lindsey’s chest. Being an obedient child, Lindsey could feel the fear of her nephew with Cole’s shaking body and cold hands. “Stop, or find yourself swimming in your blood.”More than a familiar voice and the only person right now that Lindsey could think of who. She slowly looks back and is not surprised to see the Governor, no, Francis, pointing a gun right in front of her and with a cursing look on his face. “Just how low could you go for doing this to our family? Are you desperate to establish your dominance over us that you are going this far for your selfish desire?”“Low? Who, me? Tsk! Do not make me laugh Miss. Lindsey Lawrence.”Their exchange made it clear and more than to Linds
TRAIL OF BLOOD is visible from near. Cath’s breath is heavy and her sweat is dripping from her forehead. She’s easing the pain from the gunshot wound that she got to her left arm and right leg. Dragging her heavy body and following the path that she instructed Lindsey at first if anything might happen and they needed to separate. “Tsk!”She clicks her tongue in anger and irritation. Tired and has been losing a lot of blood after she fought and struggled against Ivy. Now holding the gun that almost took her just a while back. “CATHERINE WAYNE!”The name, her name that Ivy screams in anger at the last second when she pulled the trigger and put a hole in its forehead. Ending a nightmare that she took within her hand and fails to put her back behind bars. “Almost. Just how many it is right now?”Suddenly reminisced and the similar danger that she took and choose for her career and passion. She chuckles and a bit rested behind a large tree. Ripping her bolero and tying it around her leg
GUN shots can be heard from a distance and back. The exchange and the loud crash with the blow of a bomb shake the ground for a few seconds. Holding on to a tree while tightly holding Lindsey’s hand with her right one, Cath held her ground looks back when Lindsey screams in surprise at what just happened. Starling Cole awake, that worried Cath even more than she is under a lot of stress right now. “Lindsey, are you alright?” “I am. I am just startled.” “Mom? Mommy?” “Cole.” They both immediately coax the child back to sleep. Lindsey covered Cole’s ears while hugging the little boy tight into her arms. “Mommy, aunt Lindsey, what is happening?” “Don’t worry Cole, that was just nothing, just go back to sleep.” Relieved that the little boy is still sleepy and that it didn’t give them the hard time to coaxing it back to sleep. Cath looks around and a few steps away from where she instructed Lindsey to stay covered and safe with Cole. “Tsk!” She couldn’t help but click her tongue
“THIS is what you need to do.”Instructions that Beatrice needs to follow. Things that she is hesitant at first to do since it might drag her name along with the danger that she just run away successfully from Francis. But with Hiro’s assurance and the things that Hiro just told her. The plan and the fact that the organization has Cath, Lindsey, and Cole, the truth that the organization is the other party that is rubbing Francis's patience, and the little deal that Hiro on behalf of the organization strikes a deal with Cath. Is more than a heavy reason for her to believe. No, she had no choice but to believe. For in between the organization and Francis, added with the fact that Cath strikes a mutual deal with the organization. One thing is only left for her to choose from, and that is to follow the plan Hiro just told her about, and put everything of the blame on Francis.“I got it. I’ll prepare everything as soon as possible. I’ll call you when everything is ready.”“Thirty minutes.
