Chapter 60Camilla POV…The blind fold and the ropes around me were untied and I was finally free.My eyes were already used to the darkness from the blindfold so they hurt a little due to coming in contact with the sudden brightness. I realized that I was sitting on a chair in the middle of a glaring light.I looked around and only realized that the place where I was, was the only place that had lights. It was so bright that my eyes throbbed when I tried to even open them a little bigger.The rest of the room was plunged into darkness and I could not even see the man who has been speaking just a moment ago. I did not dare open my eyes anymore because I felt that my skull was being spilt apart.My heart was nervous and I finally started to panic. Why is that every time I want to help Lucien, something bad must happen to me? and how did this people make it so natural that I did not suspect anything.Fuck it! Lenox. He must be in cahoots with them! was his phone call to ask me out done
Chapter 59Camilla POV…I did not expect that Lenox will know that I wanted to meet him so badly. Although I was shocked, I did not hesitate to accept his invitation.Even though I knew that I might be walking into a trap, I did not have time to dilly-dally. Lucien's reputation was at stake and the citizens’ reaction online was getting worse. Everyone was cursing at him and there was no voice that was speaking in his favor.I quickly went to the bedroom to get changed before I headed out in a hurry. If Lucien returned before I left, then no matter what I say, he will not allow me to leave the house alone.“Sis, I am leaving. Take care and don’t go anywhere. If Lucien comes back before I do, just tell him that I went to buy something at the supermarket!” I said to Zelma who was sitting dazedly on a chair.I knew that her worries were founded, but what I can do? Lucien needed my help now more than anything else.“Okay sis, please take care and don’t let anything happen to you!”“I know.
Chapter 58Camilla POV…‘So, everything is clear to everyone! I am sorry that I was misguided and I brought panic and grief to the public. I did not know that I was a chess piece in someone’s game, just like the rest of you! I am here to offer my deepest apology to anyone that might have been affected by the news!’This statement repeated itself in my mind over and over again. I could not understand why Lenox is so adamant on going against Lucien. Did he really want to be the mayor for the benefit of the people, or was he actually someone's chess piece?My face was expression less as I thought about this. No one knows this, but I understand Lenox more than anyone in this world. After all, I have once been smitten with him and I knew everything about him like the back of my hand.Although he is slightly smarter than average, there is no way he can come up with something like that! I am one hundred and one percent sure that someone is manipulating him behind the scenes, and that someone
Chapter 57Camilla POV…After reaching home, although I had slept in city Y, I still fell in a deep sleep. The other place was foreign and I was not used to it. It was only evening when I woke up and I could feel that I have regained my strength already.It was dark in the room except for the street lights seeping in through the window. But I was not afraid because I knew that I am in my safest abode. This is the only place where I could have an absolute sense of security.As I still lazing out on the bed, the door to the bedroom was pushed open and the lights were switched on. My eyes were already used to the darkness so I squinted a little at the sudden glaring illumination.“Camilla, are you planning on sleeping for a whole day? Although brother-in-law said that we should not disturb you, this is enough!” Zelma's voice came through.“What! I have been sleeping for a whole day? Why didn’t you wake me up?” I asked in a shocked voice.“Brother-in-law said that you should not be distur
Chapter 56Lenox POV…The shareholders held an emergency meeting and I had no choice but to attend. I have no idea what I am going to tell them but I was not going to give up on my CEO position.I did not know that one moment of greed for power will compromise everything that I have worked so hard for.“Lenox, what is the meaning of this?” Robin was one of the oldest shareholders in the company and he asked angrily throwing a stack of documents at me. although I was angry and displeased, I knew that I was in the wrong thus I maintained a calm expression.“Our company is on the verge of being swallowed by the mysterious force and our shares are dropping drastically. We are almost reaching the lowest market price to be ever experienced in the history of stock market.” He continued.“What the hell have you don Lenox? Didn’t I warn to be careful, now you have really outdone yourself this time. What are going to do?”“Everyone, things are not as bad as they look. we will get through this.
Chapter 55Lenox POV…I looked at these cunning old foxes vexing about what to do with an indifference gaze. Although I appeared calm and unaffected on the surface, inside, my emotions were churning like a whirlwind.I never expected that Lucien did not die. Not only have I compromised my position in the city, I have also put my family in danger. I know that I have shamed everyone in my family and I did not know how I will face them.The upright image that I have been keeping since the beginning of this fiasco has all crumbled just from a single statement from the mayor.I have no idea how the shares of my company are going to be affected. But no matter what I thought, I did not see any solution in this.It is only regret that filled my heart now. If I had not wanted more power, if I had not listened to these men, I would not be in this state today. But who can I blame? The thought of being mayor and getting everyone to obey me and envy me was just too tempting that I accepted it righ
Chapter 54Mayor POV…“When Lenox Crawford was making his statement, I haven’t even gotten the report from the rescue team that I had sent. I was also shocked, just like everyone else when I heard the news from him!”“I wonder how he managed to get such information and he was sure that something had happened in city Y.” I spoke. They thought that they were smart and they were the only ones who knew how to spin lies, right?I will let them have a taste of their own medicine. They want to force me to leave office? But until Lucien took over, I am not going to step my foot out of this place.“He went ahead to release false news that he knew nothing about, causing pain and grief among people and you want that kind of person to be mayor? Do you not have any confidence in my successor? I have served this city with all my heart for the last eight years, how can I endorse someone that is incompetent, won’t I be ruining my reputation if I do that?”“I can assure all of you that Lucien Hart an
Chapter 53Lucien POV…When we finally reached city N after going through so much, I finally heaved a huge sigh of relief. I looked at the petite woman before me and thanked the moon goddess again for sending her over. If she had not been impulsive and insisted on coming to find me. I would have been stuck in that place I don’t know for how long.I now felt inseparable from her and I knew that I will be stuck with her for life. She is my mate, my life partner, whether in this life time or the next.Our return was a secret so no one knew about it. I also warned those I had gone with not to say a word until a few things were clarified.The media was still in sensation about our deaths, and I did not want to startle them. I also wanted to investigate who had the guts to defy the mayor by ordering the rescue team not to do their work well and who had the guts to plant those explosives right under my nose.I went to meet with the mayor right away after sending Camilla home.“You are really
