I walked into the building after deciding to
leave everything that happened with Caden at
I really wasn’t aiming for that sentence but
there was nothing that I could have done so
quickly. I was running late in attending to work
stuff. I need to deal with that man and I need
to put things in order or the company might
just lose a lot of money.
“Please sir, forgive me. I did it all for the
betterment of this company. ” Mr Jay Thakur
begged with an Indian accent as he kneeled on
the floor with both of his hands together.
” Who exactly I’m I Mr Thakur? ” I purposely
” You’re Mr Blayze Norman. The CEO and
president of this company. ”
” And you? Who are you in this company? ”
” I…I’m just the foreign affairs manager.”
” Good…” I told him before I stood up from
where I leaned on my table in my office.
” You Mr Jay Thakur knew all that but yet you
went ahead and planned a meeting without my
consent.” I told him as I walked around him.
Only I, he, James and two security guards that
was in here.
” How much did Reling Enterprises pay you to
salvatage everything?” I asked him as I stood
in front of him with my hands in my pockets.
” I…I…no-nothing sir…”
” Do you actually know that I can throw you in
jail for all you’ve done? ”
” Please sir, please don’t do that sir…I…I
collected…a million.” He finally confessed in
I squatted in front of him.
” If there’s anything Mr Thakur that I hate most
in the world…that is betrayal…Mr Jay
Thakur…you have betrayed me and you must
be punished…Instead of throwing you in jail,
I’ve decided to throw you out of this company
without a dime from me…afterall, you’ve
collected much from my enemies…take him
away. ” I ordered the security guards.
He wept as he held my leg.
” Please sir, please sir have mercy…I have a
wife and children to support. They won’t be
able to take in all that has happened and
how…how would I face them? Please sir
” Take him away! ” I ordered the guards as I
tried to draw my leg away from him. They
struggled but finally caught hold of the man.
“Please forgive me sir…please have mercy…”
he kept pleading as they dragged him away
and out of my office.
What a nuisance! How dare he!? That means
he’s been giving out information all this while.
” Yes sir.”
“How much information was in his hands? ”
” Not quite much sir…we’re still saved. ”
” Saved!?” I asked him as my voice rose.
” How can you stand there and say we’re
saved? The information Reling has in their
hands no matter how small is enough to pull
one over us…get me all the projects he
handled and set up another meeting with the
Chinese investors for tomorrow. You’re
dismissed. ” I told him before he finally left.
I sat down on my seat and buried my head in
my palms. I had so much to deal with.
All of a sudden, the image of Caden’s face
when I said what I said to her earlier flashed
back in my mind. I can’t believe I was thinking
of her at this crucial moment. I suddenly felt
bad on remembering that look on her face. I
remembered her laughing face while we were
playing in the mud earlier. Remembering her
smile made me feel sort of wierdly…better.
I headed towards the gate but the gate
attendant blocked me.
” Please excuse me I have to go somewhere. ”
” I’m sorry ma’m but sir specifically gave
orders not to let you out of the house. ” the
gate attendant told me.
” What? ” I asked him in surprise.
” Blayze told you that? Why?”
” I’m sorry ma’m but I do not know. I was just
told not to let you out of the house. ”
“I will call Blayze later, for now, open the gate,
I need to go somewhere. ” he shook his head.
” I am Blayze’s wife so open this gate!” I
raised my voice but he refused.
” I’m sorry ma but I do not want to lose my
job. Please do understand. ”
At the end, I ended up walking back to the
mansion. I sat on the sofa in the living room.
I was suddenly feeling empty and lonely. I had
called home and told them that I was back and
would be on my way there now. I wanted to
visit them. I wanted to feel my family’s warmth
and support again. I wanted to feel like Caden
again…the strong, talk back Caden because
right now…I’m feeling like a loser. I’m feeling
quite lonely. There might be servants
everywhere but I’m still feeling lonely. How did
Blayze live in such a house all his life? He
must have lived a lonely life and that’s why
he’s so cranky and rude.
I don’t know why but I feel like crying. I miss
my home and I miss everyone. I miss my
friends, my old life…being Mrs Norman really
sucks…he doesn’t treat me nice at all. My
mood is still downed because of what Blayze
said to me earlier. Right now, I wish I could
turn back the hands of time to our wedding day
and then I would just run out of the church
instead of marrying him. Whatever cruel game
fate was playing with my life well, this isn’t
funny at all.
I gently raised up my legs to put on top of the
sofa as I lied down. I just wish I can see my
family again once more. I would hug them so
much and never let go again. I know it has not
been that long I saw them but seriously, I miss
I walked into the mansion tiredly as I loosened
my tie around my neck. I walked past the
living room but then stopped and took a step
backward. I saw Caden lying on the sofa
asleep. I walked into the living room with the
intention of waking her up and saying
something really harsh to her but instead, just
as I reached out my hand to tap her to wake
up, I saw myself staring at her and slowly, I
withdrew my hand.
She looked sort of peaceful and today her
snoring sounded sort of peaceful to me. I
couldn’t help but squat in front of her as I
stared at her face. As she breathed out, a
small strand of her hair on her face moved as
well. I saw myself stretching my hand towards
her and I gently pushed the hair behind her ear
and there…I could see her face clearly. Her
petite but beautiful looking face. I gently stroke
her cheek and she slowly flinched. As soon as
she was about to open her eyes, I immediately
stood up straight and looked away.
Slowly she woke up and took a look at me
with sleepy eyes.
” What…what do you think you’re doing
sleeping on my sofa?” I purposely started.
“Do you…do you have any idea how much this
” Blayze please…I’m not in the mood to argue
with you. ” She said as she stood to her feet
and I could notice from her face that she really
wasn’t the same challenging Caden that was
there this morning.
“You want me to say it right? Fine, I’m sorry
that a nobody like me slept on your very
expensive sofa.” She told me before turning to
leave. As I watched her, I noticed something
on her elbow…a wound and it was still
I immediately stretched out my hand without
thinking and took hold of her hand to make her
” What happened to you!?” I asked her
worriedly and she just stared at me with wide
