    Lucian’s (Luc) POV: "I know what you are trying to do. For the millionth time, Hal, Don't convince me, and the answer is still NO". Hal finally understood that my patience is wearing off. And I could see his mind was thinking fast to trap me in other ways. I knew him very well. I could have got a few film offers at the start because of my looks and acting ability. But it was Hal, and his brain made me this successful in the media industry. No one can negotiate and win this man. I sighed again, anticipating his next move to manipulate me. Everyone knew me as Lucian Alastair, a famous movie star. I have been blessed and cursed with all that was dreamed for and envied by both men and women. Looks, fame, money, success, you name it, I have it. But those made me lose one thing I treasure in my life, my family. No, I will not succumb to self-pity anymore. Hal's words penetrated my ears somehow. "Have you checked these tabloids" Hal thrown down the Nation's top weekly magazines? I narro

    Luc’s POV: I blared the horn at the truck in front of me. Everything was worse from the morning. My sleep was disturbed by the old memories, and I woke up late. I had already sent James to the office with all the necessary documents. I had to be at my office in another 30 minutes for a cross-continental meeting with my Japan office. We recently acquired a Heavy Industry, and some issues prevailed still on the merger. We were one of the top manufacturers in Air Crafts and recently stepped into Helicopters. It was Jack's idea. Thinking of Jack made me zoned out, and I came back with a start when I heard someone honking from m back. The truck was nowhere to be seen now, and I cursed myself for getting distracted. I then saw her smiling and waving at me. It was the same female from the restaurant yesterday and was wearing an oversize sweatshirt and stone-washed denim. The sweatshirt was oversized.

    Adelia’s (Lia) POV: "He did what?" I started laughing at Mitch's story. Cole's face was flushed red, but he never took his hand from Mitch's. Mitch, aka Michelle, and I was buddies from primary school. Cole, aka Nicolas, joined us in Grade 8. We were inseparable in school. I recently completed my degree in business administration in Manufacturing and Logistics. I joined my Dad in his "Worth Manufactures." I could not help a smile whenever I thought about my Dad. The company was his life apart from my family. Even though my grandfather started it, my Dad made it a big success. The company and my family were like two eyes for him. But recently, we were facing struggles due to the recession. I was a big shock to see the company's situation because my Dad usually made it look as if the company was running without any issues. Even my idiot brother never opened this before. He

    Lia’s POV:The sound of my mobile penetrated my ears. I tried to snooze, but my mobile acted as if it had its idea to bug me. I tried to open my eyes only to find that I was getting a call and not an alarm. I groaned myself. Who in the Earth was calling at this early hour? I suddenly became awake to see that it was Max from my office. Max was the chief design architect in our company. He was a complete brainer and recently had come up with some exciting designs for future technology."Morning, Max. What is the emergency to call me at this morning?" mumbled between my yawns. "Good morning Lia. We have a meeting with my boys on the new gearbox designs, remember? We need to finalize this by this week.""Oh, Crap. I forgot that. My car broke down yesterday, and I don't have transport. I cannot hitch a ride with dad as he and Jax have to go to the

    Lia’s POV: "Honey, we are home," Max called Alyssa while we entered the living room. Max and Alyssa live in a two-bedroom apartment in central park. I loved their home and spent time with them as much as possible. So Als made the guest bedroom as mine, and I had my spare clothes here if I had to crash on any night. I am so thankful to get such friends. Oh, God! Thinking alike for the second time today. I was so going to jinx me. I then realized max had settled comfortably on the couch. When I decided to move to the kitchen to help, I saw Als standing at the kitchen door with both hands on her hips. Her eyes narrowed at Max. "How many times I have to tell you to keep the keys and coat on the place, mister?" Als asked in a dry tone. "Great. I got an OCD girlfriend." He muttered but immediately got up

    Part 6
    Lia’s POV I tried and failed not to tap my foot impatiently as I was not alone in the lift. The old couple looked back at me and muttered. I could not catch it but heard words like 'Young People' and 'No Patience.' God! It was taking forever to reach the floor. Finally, after what seemed to be like hours, I entered the floor. There was no difficulty in finding the Suite as it was the only room on the entire floor. I took a deep breath and pressed the calling button before I chicken out. And I did not expect the person when the door opened. Whoa! If this is Lucian Alastair, then the film and magazines have not done any justice at all. I saw a fine specimen of almost 6 feet. His hair was black and sticking up attractively, and so his dark eyes. God! Girls would die to get such eyelashes. And did I miss out on the perfect jawline and the lips? The black Khaki and white butto

    Lia’s POVI tensed, hearing the doorbell. And immediately felt a hand over mine to calm me down. I turned to see Alyssa looking at me with concern-filled eyes. I felt Max moving to check the door, and the smell of pizza made me realize that the food had arrived. I could not help recalling the evening and a fresh set of tears started flowing down my cheeks. Alyssa embraced me and whispered at me to calm down. But the words gave a reverse effect. I shuddered at the thoughts. What if he had not got a call? I knew his demeanor changed after the phone call. What if he had not attended the phone call? What if he had not cooled down? And so many what-ifs haunted me.I was not able to recall what happened once he opened the door. I saw some flash, and Alastair was blocking me from those lights. I also heard

    Luc’s POV A tap on my shoulder made me look at the source. James nod that we have reached the destination. "I will wait for you here." James made a move to settle in an upholstery near the window comfortably. "Oh no, buddy. The invite is for both of us." I smirked back at him, and I let out a chuckle when James suddenly looked as if he had swallowed a lemon. "But why should I be invited for tea with your Mom?" "Since when they have treated you an outsider?" I raised an eyebrow at him. James smiled softly, expressing his love towards my family. But now, my mom had not invited me to a lovely family union. So the invite for today's morning tea was mainly due to today's news on me. I got a big round of advice from Hal. He stated that the damage control would be challenging

    Lia's POV I entered a vast lobby. Despite my nervousness, I could not help but admire the infrastructure. Unfortunately, I did not remember how long I stood admiring the area when I felt a tap on my shoulder. "May I help you, ma'am? You had not responded when I called you,"

    Lia's POV I entered the lift and let out the breath I was holding subconsciously. I knew it was a big mistake to let out such a statement. But who did he think himself off? That arrogant, self-centered, egoistic, handsome, eye-catching... What? Get a grip, Lia. Please don't say that you fell for him. You were not one of his lapdogs.
