She's always been described as "her" shadow. The shadow of a beautiful, intelligent sister that she could never beat. Her whole life, she has tried her best to meet up to her sisters standards but it has never been the same. She has never been able to shine by herself without being compared to Willow. For 20 years now, she's been the shadow and never once has she realised that she was equally as beautiful and intelligent. Today was the day, the day that it would be all about her, well that's what she thought initially. It was her 20th birthday party where she will be revealed as her fathers heir of the company after being abroad for a year studying 24/7 to be able to live up to her fathers standards. Today was her day being in the spotlight after disappearing from it for 2 years. In this year, she has changed drastically. So much that her parents didn't recognise her when she stepped out of her fathers private jet. So much that her old high school bullies wouldn't even have recognised her. She was finally back and stronger than ever. Neveah was back to show everyone that she is not the same girl as she was 2 years ago. Alec McKinley, the typical playboy of the century. Having flings left, right and centre but discarding them after a night with their bodies. He was notorious for this but it didn't stop females from dropping their skin tight dresses to state to the world that they've has a night with the heir to the McKinley Enterprise. These naïve females all through that they would be the one to change him. To be able to tame the beast in bed. However, they leave empty handed, without their clothes but just a robe as always.View More
---2 week later---"Are you ready?" I asked my sister since our case against our father has been accepted by the court and we will be going to him right now with our lawyer and the charged that we are going to charge him."I am slightly worried but I know that everything will be fine. He is going to get what he deserves and I know that we can win our case with all the evidence that we have.""I know Willow, however, do not forget that this is our father that we are talking about and he has many ways to make sure we do not win."I know I was supposed to give her some reassurance but we are walking in unknown territory. Nobody has ever gotten the courage to go against my father for a reason."I know, however, with the help of your husband, we can be sure that everything is going to go well.""True, let us just hope that everything does go well and things will be fine because my son is waiting for me to hold him in my arms aga
"How can you not tell me that." I was shocked at the detailed description that Willow has told me about."I couldn't. The moment I tell you what I had to go through to please father. I would have dragged you into all this mess.""We could have done something about it.""I couldn't though. I knew that the moment I started helping dad, everything would have changed. I was not just his daughter anymore but also a source of income for him.""Playing with people's heart is not a job Willow. You are destroying someone's life with the games that you guys are playing. We seriously need to but a stop to this.Just look at you. This is a reason to stop. Your bruises are the outcome of what would happen when it backfires on you and I can't allow you to continue this any longer!""I know but how do I get out of this mess?""Wait, I'll call Alec and we'll sort something out as soon as possible.""Okay."I quickly ma
The moment we got back, it was clear that our relationship had changed for the better. We were inseparable due to the confession that we had given each other over the weekend.Thanks for giving was this weekend, so I had to prepare myself to meet his whole family once again. I had met most of them on our wedding night, however, I believe Alec did say that some of them couldn't make it due to some business issues that they had to take care of."Babe! Who are the people who I didn't get to meet on our wedding day?" I asked whilst cutting some cabbages for our side salad."Well, one of my cousins didn't make it due to having a case in London and he wouldn't have made it on time. Other than that it was just my aunt and uncle, but I don't think they will be coming.""How come?" I asked whilst slicing up some cherry tomatoes."They don't associate with our family after my dad was the one who took over the company rather than my uncle. P
---Nevaeh's POV---It’s been roughly a week since the reveal evening, and everything has been going smoothly.I had just come back from Asia for a week just making sure that everything was running smoothly from the start of the construction."Welcome back!" Alec greeted me the moment I stepped out of the plane. "I am so glad to be back," I replied hugging him whilst he takes my luggage."So, how was it?" He asked as we started the journey to the nearest IHOP since we were both cravings for some pancakes covered in syrup."It was everything that we planned for. They are starting construction as soon as possible and then in a couple of months’ times everything should be up and running since people do things very quickly there."That is very true.""So how were you this whole week?" I asked seeing I couldn’t contact him that much throughout this week due to the time zone difference.
Throughout the day, we had gotten everything ready for tonight's ceremony. We did go and see Archie and was grateful that he was doing perfectly fine. It didn't seem like he was rejecting the liver transplant, but the doctor did say that they need to keep him there for another couple of days just in case.Through that period where we went to see Archie, I had a moment where I found myself wondering what it would be like to have a mini Nevaeh or me running around our home. It made me realise that I did think she was the one for me.We have been officially married for around 4 months now. Things have gotten to the point that we are more comfortable with each other and I have never felt this way with another woman.It also worries me that there are only 8 more months to somehow make her fall for me or I could potentially lose her. I just hope that everything will work out on its own when the time comes because I don't think I can see her with anyb
---Alec's POV---She should be home by now. It had currently been an hour since we called each other and I was confused as to why she wasn't back yet.It only takes around 20 minutes to get home from her company and she was already on her way back when I called her.This was extremely confusing and worrying. I tried calling her a couple of times but she hasn't picked up and I didn't know what to do.Pacing around the house was not helping with my nerves but I could not help it. It was not long before I heard the door open and she walked in."What the hell happened?" I stated in a frantic moment before running up to her to see if she was okay."What do you mean?""It doesn't take you an hour to get back and I thought something serious had happened to you! You had me so worried Tesoro.""I'm sorry, there was a lot of traffic due to an accident on the way back which was why I w
"Father!" I stormed into his study after knowing the test results. He had seriously gotten a female employee pregnant and then sent her packing."I see you know the test results.""Yes. He is your child! You got a female employee pregnant.""Impossible! The rest results must have been forged""Father! Own up to your mistakes. I had my private doctor do the test, so now tell me. How can it be forged, father?"I couldn't believe the fact that he is still in denial after getting the proof that indicates he is my father's child."Fine. Make sure that this doesn't get leaked to the press and most of all your mother. If this gets out, there will be huge consequences for you.""I understand father, but now I have to go and take care of the mess you have made. Like always." I stated and stormed out of his study, back down to my car.I had decided this morning to drive for myself since I couldn't rely on the driv
"Alec! What are you doing here." I was shocked at the fact that he was here when I never told him about my plan to visit my father."You should be grateful that I came here on time. Camellia told me when I called to ask if you would be free to have lunch with me," he stated whilst walking to me stood between my father and I, as a way of protecting me."Mr McKinley, there is no need for you being here when I'm having a peaceful conversation with my daughter is there.""I'm sorry Mr Miller, but this did not seem like a peaceful conversation that you have described. All I saw when I came into your study was you about to lay a hand on my wife. I don't know if you and I have different ideas on what a peaceful conversation is but that is nowhere near what I had in mind.""Well, Mr McKinley, if you don't mind waiting outside whilst I finish my conversation with my daughter before you entered and she will be with you as soon as possible.""Yeah Alec,
