After her family died in a tragic car accident, she becomes a poor heiress. While she was grieving for her parent's death, she caught her long-term boyfriend cheating on her. The man she thought she could lean on leaned on another woman's shoulder. What's more, that woman is her best friend! With her life filled with endless tragedy, she drowns her sorrows with alcohol and spent a steamy night with a mysterious man. The man in question woke up alone in the massive hotel room. When he decided to spend his night recklessly, a one-night-stand never crossed his mind. With a sly smile on his face, he picked up the note left on the side table. ‘Thank you for tonight! See you never!’ These simple words ignited his will to locate his woman. Five years later… "Hey old man, stop staring at me or my Mom will kick your ass,” the little boy arrogantly said. The “old man” smirked and bent down to pat the boy's head. “That's the best threat I've heard in my life, son.” One reckless night gave them a treasure and a lifetime of happiness.View More
Days after settling down in the East City, I was approached by my old classmates to have dinner with them. I couldn't refuse because they especially went to school for me. I was very uncomfortable the entire time because they were just mocking me for having a son. So when the people I absolutely abhor showed up, I excused myself from their honorable presence. Staying there would only wear me out. I sat in the lobby of the hotel to wait for the taxi that I booked. It was a really stressful night. Even though I stayed silent the whole time, they still drained my energy. “Rui?” I looked up and felt my body stiffen as soon as I saw the man's face. I hurriedly covered my face and tried to flee. But he stopped me by grabbing my wrist. “No way, you're leaving me again?” he asked. Who is he anyway? What is our connection? Just that one night? Well, maybe we do have a connection. We even had a child. But that's not the point! The point is, I have to leave! “I don't know you, sir.”
Soft and bittersweet notes resonated in the whole hall as the door opened for my arrival. I wholeheartedly listened to it as I closed my eyes to recall all the bitter and sweet events that rocked my world before marrying this man. “Ugh… Even sitting hurts…” I groaned the moment I tried to sit up. Who would've thought that having sex would be painful? Well, it was painful at first… But I… I think I liked it? But hell, I never thought that I would wake up to this kind of pain! I ruffled my hair because of frustration. “So dumb! I thought nothing could get worse than the things–” “Hmmm…” the man beside me groaned as he moved. Holy cow! I quickly steeled myself to get up to make myself a little bit presentable. Walking out of the bathroom, I saw a gorgeous man sleeping in all his glory! Perfect in all angles and… ehem… He's really good. Though it was kind of a blurry night for me. I enjoyed all the foreign things he did to me. Every touch was electrifying. But that was it. Bec
“Cecilia, you're from the Eldritch family?” Cecilia looked up and adorably smiled. “Yes, uncle.” Rui brushed Cecilia's beautiful locks. “Your family was looking for you earlier. They must've been worried sick because of what happened.” “I… I just don't want to see my friend in danger…” Rui and Chase met each other's eyes in confusion. Both of them thought of the same question, 'How do they know each other?' Cecilia and Eon did not notice the adult's reaction. They just quietly sat on the back seat in between Rui and Chase with their fingers intertwined. “Dad, will Cecilia go home now?” Eon suddenly asked as he tightened his grip on her hand. He was so delighted to see his old friend again that he forgot she also has a family of her own to return to. “Of course, son. Her parents are now waiting at the airport. We're now on the way there to drop her off.” “Why? She lives far from here?” Chase patted his son's head. “Yes, so she has to take an airplane to go home.” Hearing t
“Daddy, mommy!” Eon exclaimed the moment he saw his parents. Cecilia also noticed them so she cutely waved her hand. “Hello, uncle and auntie!” The two kids energetically jumped down from the couch to go over to Rui and Chase's side. Eon then dearly hugged his mother's thighs. Now that he felt his mother's warmth, his anxious heart started to calm down. Cecilia looked at Eon in envy, so she hugged Rui's other thigh. “Auntie~” Rui's fatigue completely vanished upon seeing the two children. She bent down to embrace the two. “You kids have suffered… Mommy's here to take you away, okay?” When the gang leader heard Rui, he looked at her incredulously. 'Are you freaking serious, madam?!' “Yesss~,” the two said joyfully. While Rui was engrossed in the children's tender touch, Saxon Hale entered the room. “Are you done with your reunion, Rui Yoon? Or should I say, Mrs. Eno?” he said spitefully. Hearing Saxon's hostility, Chase immediately brought his wife and the kids behind
Rui's hand trembled as she held onto Chase's phone which was ringing nonstop. She thought that if something bad were to happen to her son, he would immediately call his dad, not her. Eon wouldn't want to worry her so he would definitely call his dad. She knows her son like the back of her hand. And she could only pray that he is safe. But her hopes were completely shattered the moment that an unknown number called her husband. Chase rubbed her shoulders. “Go answer it, honey. It must be Eon.” She nervously pressed the answer button and said, “Hello?” “Am I talking to Rui Yoon?” “Yes, I am Rui Yoon.” “I have your son here with me. If you want to get him back, bring the heirloom that your grandfather gave you. The golden safe box.” Rui felt her chest tighten when she heard that someone kidnapped her son for their heirloom. She anxiously breathed as she tried to compose herself. She still has to be strong. She could not let herself fall. Not until her son is safe and sound. “I'
Teacher Kang approached the Eno couple who were peacefully sitting on the bench, watching the high school students compete in volleyball. “Rui, is Eon with you guys? The chess club advisor is looking for him.” Rui frowned. She still hasn't seen her son and hasn't heard from any of his bodyguards either. “He's not with us… I thought he was with your class?" Shaking her head, Teacher Kang denied her assumption. "Then..." Realizing that she had no idea where her son was, she panicked. “Chase, contact his bodyguards!” Chase sighed. The moment that the bodyguards lost sight of Eon, they started to look for him. Of course, Chase was well aware of this. Simply put, he didn't want to worry Rui, so he made the decision to keep quiet and inform her after their son had safely returned. “They are trying to find him as we speak. Don't worry,” he said as he rubbed her back to comfort her. … Saxon Hale's assistant entered the run-down building calmly. There, he was welcomed by the th
Eon woke up to find his hands tied behind his back in a pitch-black room. He nimbly moved his body in search of a wall or a corner he could lean against. And as he moved his legs on his right side, he felt another body near him. 'Who's with me?' He lightly poked the body using his foot to see if the other person was awake or not. However, even with his continuous poking, there was no response. 'Don't tell me this person is dead?!' In his fear that the body beside him is lifeless, he tries to lean over so that he can feel the person's temperature. And upon contact, he felt that she was quite hot. So he inched closer to wake the person up. “Hey, wake up…” Eon whispered. The little girl beside him tried to move her arms but it was also tied. Though they were inside a dark room, she did not feel scared at all. Especially when she heard the boy's voice, she felt extremely reassured now that he was with her. “Leonard… Help me out, please,” the little girl mumbled. Eon froze
“Mommy… Why are you crying?” he asked in a panic. Lianna rolled her eyes in annoyance. 'What a gullible kid…' She then embraced her son in a hurry to hide her sour expression. “Rui, won't listen to me… I begged her but she won't listen… My Luke, what should mommy do?” she sobbed. The little boy felt his eyes water as he watched his mother cry in despair. He couldn't grasp what was happening with his mother. He only understood that someone hurt his mother. “Mom–mommy, what should Luke do?” he stuttered. She wiped her tears and forced a smile. “Mommy just wants to talk to Eon… Can you invite him?” “What should Luke tell him, mommy?” “Tell him that his mommy's best friend wants to talk to meet him.” “Yes, mommy!” he exclaimed as he ran towards the elementary department's hall where Eon's chess competition was happening. When he reached the event hall, he watched Eon play with an older and taller opponent. Their chess board was flashed on a screen at the side for the stu
