Aiden instructed a bell boy to bring him the paper which Aria intended to give him after she left.
He unfolded the paper and found her words.
'I love you too' it read.
He smiled softly and looked in the direction which she left.
He pocketed the paper and left to attend his meeting.
Aria on the other hand is disappointed. She tried to tell him how she feels for him, but luck doesn't seem that be on her side.
'Now he is going for a meeting and who knows how long it will be until he comes back' she thought with a sad face.
The day passed by slowly, but without a sign of Aiden.
Aria is feeling restless. She regretted not telling him what she feels when she had the chance. Now she fears that he might misunderstand that she doesn't feel the same about him.
"What are you going to do?" Claire asked her.
"I have to do something and let him know how I feel about him. That too today itself" Aria told Claire.
"Hmm, then you
Aria and Aiden lay on the bed beside each other naked, and they have a very content smile on their faces."I never thought this day would come so soon. I thought I had to wait for another year for you to forgive me, or even more" Aiden confessed.Aria smiled at his statement."I guess I loved you since a long time. It's easy to forgive you" Aria said.Aiden smiled at her statement.That's when Aria remembered something Natasha said that day."Is is Noah behind everything that happened at that time?" Aria asked.Aiden stiffened."Yes, he instigated everything and I got carried away. It's my mistake as well. I cannot throw the entire blame on him and tell you that I am innocent. I am not" Aiden confessed."What happened?" Aria asked softly.Aiden sighed and began to explain everything since the moment her father crashed in to his father and then Noah killing his father and blackmailing Martin. And then Noah send that vi
Martin and Aria sat outside on the porch, talking about everything that happened since the moment he was forced to move out on them."I made a mistake Ari, I shouldn't have drunk so much and driven my car. I did both. I was so drunk, I accidentally crashed into Mr. Alexander. I panicked and left him on the road to die. I found out later that he was not dead then but was killed by Noah. He began to blackmail me with that video of me crashing into Mr. Alexander. I was forced to do everything he wanted me to. First, he wanted me to leave you and your mother. And then, he made me marry Sarah, that was the point I began to feel hopeless and helpless. Then, everything began to go out of control. Then your mother died and you contacted me for help. I know Aiden is a good man who wouldn't let you suffer alone. So I made you come here to protect you in the only way I could" Martin confessed, making Aria's eyes tear up."We missed you so much after you left us, dad. Mostly mom,
On that very same night, at 2 am in the early morning hours, 10 masked men entered Aiden's beach house, through the back door.Everyone in the house was sleeping, unaware of the danger they are in.Those masked men started to climb the upper floors as if following a plan. They entered Aiden's room and found Aria and Aiden sleeping beside each other.One of them removed his mask, and Noah's face appeared."Not for too long," he said through clenched teeth.He indicated his men to go and get the girl, but when they were about to touch Aria, Aiden opened his eyes and looked at those men with shock."Who are you?" he asked loudly, alerting Aria beside him."What's happening?" Aria asked with confusion and fear looking around the bed at the dark-clothed masked men.That's when Aiden heard Noah's chuckle.He snapped his head towards his old friend and enemy."Oh, it's you? I should have guessed" Aiden said lazily, getti
The next morning, Aiden's mom Sarah was cooking breakfast in the kitchen when Aria came down.Aiden is still sleeping, but Aria couldn't sleep at all after what happened last night. She is on edge and itching to go out of the room for some air.When she came down, she saw Sarah, Aiden's mother cooking breakfast. With everything that happened after she came the previous day, Aria couldn't talk to her properly. She seems to be like a nice woman."Do you want some help?" Aria offered tentatively.Sarah looked behind her and smiled at Aria."Oh hello dear. Good morning. No dear, I am just about done. I couldn't sleep at all with everything that happened last night. So I decided to prepare some pancakes. Martin too likes pancakes. I stress cook a lot" Sarah agreed sheepishly.Aria smiled at that comment."Ya, I couldn't sleep too. Everything is too much to digest" Aria too agreed.Sarah switched off the flames and turned to face Aria.
