With a divorce paper through at him, Elijah watched the woman he love walked away with another man. His father was right, this world is filled with hypocrites and devils in sheep's clothing, and he can never let his heart rule over his head, for a woman or anyone, and this lesson was coming true now. Revenge was the only thing Elijah was looking forward to. But revenge has no place for the weak, and it cannot be satisfied with anything lesser than perfection, and he knew that. Yet, just as he was starting his journey to great power and vengeance, a girl surface in his life, and when he looked in eyes, he saw...Lihat lebih banyak
Of all the months and days Elijah had been sitting in the courtroom for, today, he felt more nervous and impatient than he had ever felt before. His fingers drummed against his leg and he bit his lip nervously as he looked around the room while they waited on the reading of the verdict. For the most part, his nervousness was due to leaving Peach when she was now eight pregnant, and he just wanted this entire trial to be over so he can go back to her. “We all have sat in this courtroom for days, listening to witnesses and going through the pieces of evidence presented by both the defense team and the prosecution. After hours of deliberation by the jury, the verdict is in.” The judge announced, darting her gaze from Ryan and Elijah to Jewel. A slight look of disgust passed over the judge’s face when she locked eyes with Jewel and then declared, “The jury has found you, Jewel Hayes guilty on all accounts and not mentally deranged... For first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit second
“Hey, Mrs. Maxwell...” A cute nurse said in a sweet tone as she walked into Peach's room. “How are you feeling?”Laying on the bed, Peach turned her head to stare at the nurse, saying, “I am good.”“That’s great. We love when our patients are good.” The nurse replied as she took the clipboard that sat next to the bed. “Okay. Dr. Harry will be in soon. Today is the day we do your BPP. It's normal like all the other ultrasounds. Doctor Harry just thinks you need a BPP because of the injury to your back from your fall.”Then she looked around slightly, and blurted out softly out of curiosity, “Is your husband still here?”“No. He flew out of the country yesterday.” Peach stated flatly before looking back down at her hands.Suddenly the room door opened and Doctor Harry walked in with a smile on his face as he said, “Hi, Peach! How are ya doing today?” “Better,” Peach responded with a small smile as her doctor pulled over a chair and sat down beside her bed.“Okay... then. Are you ready?
Hearing the smooth sound of Peach’s heart beating in his ear was comforting, and Elijah ran his fingers through her hair slowly, enjoying the gentle sensation as she lay in the comfort of his arms on the hospital bed. A soft smile crossed Peach’s face as she snuggled closer to him, and he chuckled at how cute she was, cuddled in his arm, and he gently ran his hand down her arm before letting it rest there on her stomach. “I feel huge.” Peach whispered, meeting his eyes with a pout. Feeling the warmth from Peach’s abdomen, Elijah’s palm relaxed against her skin, and he could only imagine with a smile on his lips, what it felt like for their child to be growing inside of her. “It feel like days ago that you were complaining that you were not showing and now look at you… glowing with your bum.” Elijah mumbled, rubbing her bare stomach slowly. “I can’t believe little Munchkin turned seven months two days ago…” Peach giggled softly, closing her eyes and nuzzling into his chest. Abs
The night has been one of the hardest for both Elijah and Peach, sleeping in separate rooms, away from each other's touch and comfort, and unable to sleep properly because they couldn't seem to stop craving each other's warm bodies. And when the morning arrived, Peach was staring at the sunrise through the hospital window and wishing that all of this was just a bad dream. But she knew it was not when she saw her mother sleeping on the couch by her side.When Miss Grace opened her eyes, she weakly smiled and asked, “How do you feel now.”“I can’t believe I am going to be spending four months away from him…” Peach whispered, trying not to start crying again because she felt tired from how much sobbing she did that night.“Elijah will be visiting you.” Miss Grace said, waking from the couch. Then she approached the bed and sat down, taking Peach's hand in her own and caressing her knuckles with her thumb. “You know it's not the same, mama.” Peach whispered with a shaky smile.“I know
For so long, the Maxwell massive mansion had never been so lively as it was that evening. The enormous ballroom was decorated in a timeless and romantic theme, with a grand staircase leading up to a second-floor balcony, all-white floral decor and table linens, grand chandeliers, and crystal lamps. All guests wore all neutral colors to blend in with the elegant theme, and even though guests had started arriving an hour ago, more were still coming. The orchestra was playing soft classical music, and the guests enjoyed the scenery while they waited. Slowly Peach's eyelids shut as the makeup artist rubbed on the eyeshadow, and when Peach finally them again, there was still that smile plastered on the artist's face as she admired her work. The room door suddenly burst open and Mrs. Maxwell, Miss Grace, and all the ladies from the book club entered the room, their laughter widening Peach's smile. “Elijah is a lucky groom… His bride is really pretty.” One of the ladies said as they
The dining table was quiet as Mr. Williams sat with his daughter-in-law, his son, and Dan, and after a while, Vance asked his father, “So, he’s coming here today?” “Yes,” Dr. Williams said, staring intensely at his food. After a long silence, Julie gazed at him and then said, "Do you think he's about to make his final move?" "If he is, then I will have to come clean... He has done so much for us and weakened Jewel so much that I think it's safe now..." Mr. William mumbled, lifting his head to stare at his son. "What are you not telling us, father?" Vance asked, crossing his arms over his chest. Silence settled in the room and then Mr. Williams whispered, "I did it to protect your cousin." "Uncle Elijah!!" Dan's sudden shout made the three of them turn their heads to stare at the dining room doorway to see Elijah walking into the room. "Elijah... I mean, Mr. Maxwell..." Vance said, looking slightly nervous, knowing that a lot of things had come to light in the media about Elijah
Adjusting his coat, Bryan Checks stood at the front door, exhausted from his seven-hour flight, and then he hit the doorbell, patiently waiting afterward.A moment later, the door opened and a tall, slender older fellow stood In the doorway, smiling at Bryan, and said, “Good morning. I am butler Anthony, and you must be-”“Bryan. I am Bryan Checks.” Mr. Checks said.“Right. Please come in. My young master is awaiting you.” “Thanks.” Quietly, Bryan followed Anthony through the hallway, and finally, they got to a set of double doors, and then Anthony pushed it open, and announced, “Young master Elijah, Bryan Checks has arrived.”Immediately, Elijah stood from the couch, a smile on his face, and then walked over to Bryan, pulling him in a hug, tapping him three times on the back before releasing.“This place is massive!” Bryan said with a smile.“Excuse me,” Anthony said, bowing slightly before leaving the room.When the doors closed, both Elijah and Checks took a seat on the couch, an
Holding Elijah's hand a bit tightly, Peach stared solely at him as they sat in the backseat of the Limousine, on their way to the hospital.“It’s just a check-up,” Elijah said, trying not to let his nervousness show through. “You and little Munchkin are fine.”“I know. I'm just happy... a bit nervous, but happy,” Peach admitted, and then she took a moment to take some deep breaths, then looked at her husband with a small smile. A while later, Elijah walked Peach into Doctor Harry's office, the couple smiled at him when he raised his gaze and beamed at them.“Welcome guys… Sit, please.” Dr. Harry asked politely.After leading Peach to a chair, Elijah took a seat by her and then focused on Dr. Harris as he asked, “So, are you two really to hear your baby's heart-”Suddenly Elijah’s ringtone interrupted the doctor, and with an apologetic look on his face, he stared at Peach as he reached into his pocket for it, mumbling, “I am so sorry, babe.”When he got it out of his pocket, Elijah st
