Aiden parked his black Suv behind his, black Ashton Martin. He cursed when he saw Natasha's car parked in front of one of the closed garage doors.
"Shit" he cursed.
He regrets ever giving the house keys to her. Recently she is acting like his girlfriend, which is not the case.
He is using her as a distraction from Aria. And now he understands it as a very bad idea.
He got down the car and walked inside the house. He saw Aria walking towards the stairs and a furious Natasha pulling her back before slapping her hard, across her face.
"Natasha" Aiden roared before rushing to help Aria up.
Natasha is stunned to look at Aiden. She didn't think he would come so soon and see all this. But she is not about to give him up for this girl, whoever she is.
Aria's cheek is throbbing with pain and she is sure that it must be swollen.
When Aiden helped her up, she let him without fussing. She is still in shock about the entire thing.
Aiden and Aria sat there in silence. Aria is applying ice to her cheek. Aiden is looking at her quietly."I am sorry" Aiden confessed suddenly.Aria looked at him with surprise.She thought he is apologizing for Natasha. But it's not he who hurt her. So it's not his mistake."You didn't hurt me. You don't have to apologize to her" Aria said truthfully.Aiden looked at her strangely. He is not apologizing for only that. But he should have elaborated a little. She wouldn't understand what he is thinking in his mind."No, not just for this, for everything" he elaborated.Aria still didn't understand."For everything?" She looked puzzled.Aiden truly looked ashamed of himself."We started on a wrong footing. After you came here searching for Martin, and when I found out you are his daughter, I thought you would be like him. Greedy, mooch, and a scum. But you proved me wrong. You are nothing like him. You are hard-wo
Martin William, a scum bag and a drug addict. But no one knows how he became one. He had a very loving wife and an angel as a daughter, a steady job, and a couple of trustworthy friends.But everything changed with one little mistake. One day he went out to party with his friends and had a little too much to drink.He shouldn't have driven his car on his own when he is drunk. He should have accepted his friend's offer and let him drive Martin home. But he did neither.He thought he is fine and is capable to drive. But a drunk person cannot tell when he is drunk.But then, he was overconfident in his driving abilities. So like an idiot, he drove his car on the highway, at a speed, which he should not be driving.That's when he did one thing that he should not have done. He crashed into a man, who was standing on the side of the road, waiting for someone to help him with his car, which is broken.The impact of the collision gave his body
"He is cool, he is handsome, he is sweet and he is perfect" Lily was talking about our boss, who would be visiting the restaurant today.Aria rolled her eyes at the dreamy look on Lily's face.Lily is singing praises to our boss for the last half an hour."If the boss lets her, she would marry him and have kids in her dreams" Bethy muttered from beside me.Lily looked at Bethy and stick her tongue out."You are just jealous," Lily said still in a dream-like state."Ya, I am jealous of your daydreaming abilities. No one can dream as you can" Bethy even clapped her hands to praise Lily."Hey," Lily said with narrowed eyes."I am watching you" Lily warned Bethy in mock outrage."Oh my God, please don't. I am so scared" Bethy played along with Lily.They look ridiculous doing that, but they are fun to be around with. Who is there to judge them?I smile despite of their ridiculousness. They bickered back and fo
"What?" Aria asked in shock.'Did he just ask me to kiss him? Isn't it considered as workplace harassment? Can I complain about it to the HR department? But will they take my complaint? I am just a nobody who came to this town a couple of days ago. He is the owner of this huge restaurant chain. No one said a bad thing about him. So if I tell them about this, will they believe me? What if I quit this job? Will I get another job soon? Or will this man make sure that I was not hired anywhere?" Aria thought in horror."Kiss me Sweetheart" he repeated himself, knowing fully well that she wouldn't agree.He remembered their conversation last night. He understood she is not as unaffected by him as he thought she is.She just needs a push and he is sure he can wear her resistance off soon.Aria is shocked and confused.What exactly is happening here? She thought.Aiden knows she would most definitely slap her new boss and quit her job rather t
After work, Aria went home with mixed feelings in her heart. Whenever Aiden touched her, her mind stops working completely, as if its plugs have been pulled out.Her body takes over, giving in to the temptation of the pleasure, which only he can give.But their relationship will be a disaster, without any future to it. His mother and her father are married, Which makes them step-siblings.It's strictly not possible at all.'I don't know what's going on in Aiden's head. Why is he so adamant to sleep with me again?' She thought with frustration.'What will she tell her father, if he finds out? What will her friends think? What will Adam think about me then?' She thought.When she reached home, he saw his car already parked in front of one of the garage doors.She walked into the house slowly, not making any noise. She doesn't want to alert Aiden. She cannot have another one of his toe-curling and panty-melting kisses.'I need
Aiden looked at Aria, who has a conflicted look in her eyes."This is not permanent Aria. I am not asking you to marry me. This is just an affair, which can last as long as you want. If you want it to end in a week, then let's end it in a week. I don't have any problem with giving controls to you. After this is over, you can find a nice guy and move on. I know you are not ready to settle down yet and neither am I. So it's a win-win for both of us. Think about it" Aiden is trying to make her understand that it's not permanent.He knows settling down with anyone for her right now is scary. Hell, he is 25 and he is scared of settling down himself.And she is just 19, and he knows she might have some plans for her life. So she too is not ready for something serious at this point. So his proposal is the best one for both of them.Aria considered his proposal."We can keep this a secret. No one needs to know anything. On the outside, we don't know each o
As promised, Ryan took all three girls to the nearby island, which is small and has some tourist attractions like water parks and snorkeling.It's just half an hour away from the mainland, and the boat which Ryan mentioned is not small. It's a huge boat which carries tourists too and fro from the surrounding islands to the mainland.Some of the islands, which are a little bigger than this one, have resorts to stay in as well.They decided to go on early, so Aria woke up at 6 in the morning, did her morning routine got dressed in a bikini, and on top of that, she wore a t-shirt and some shorts.Aria decided to meet the three near the dock area. That's where they are supposed to board the tourist boat.Ryan talked with his friend, who is going to join them on the trip."Steve" Ryan called his friend over, who looks like he is searching for Ryan."Dude" Steve called and made his towards them.By the time Aria came to the dock, Ryan,
"Come to my office, we can talk there," Aiden told Alex."Ok," Alex agreed and disconnected the call.Alex is the private detective hired by Aiden.Initially, when he was hired, he thought of the case as a normal accident, but the family is thinking about it as suspicious because they loved the dead person.But after Alex saw the pictures Aiden showed him, he too became suspicious. He checked the police statement given by the police to the family.They just recorded it as an unfortunate accident and nothing else.But the pictures Aiden showed him are not of the person who died of a normal accident.His face and forearms have injuries from falling hard on the road. Alex understood its not a normal accident.Someone is trying not to bring it forward. It must be the person who killed Aiden's father or it should be someone else.Alex is determined to find the killer, whoever it is.So he started by asking the people around the
