“Everything is going according to plan, boss” Alexis said walking inside the office. He and Daniro went to check up on the documents of progresses when it came to the businesses that happened here at the hotel.
The galas and events that have happened here were all a success as far as I heard, and received in the monthly documented reports we got. My men and I had to make sure to check up on everything as to make sure that nothing has gone missing or out of plan. I needed to also ensure that everyone was doing his duty properly, otherwise, he or she would lose the job regardless of whatever it was. Mindy was just one of them.
Having annoyed Aurora more than necessary, I didn’t want a woman to be around if she didn’t respect my other costumers or was disturbing them in any possible way. That is something that I couldn’t agree upon, and would never accept. If the waitress couldn’t see that, then she was to learn the har
Eliana:“Where are you two taking us again?” Aurora asked raising an eyebrow.“It’s a surprise, and since when are you this suspicious?” Luka asked Aurora. I looked at Vladimir who was driving, the couple was sitting in the backseat while Vladimir and I were in the front seats.I was wearing a tight red dress and black heels. My hair was curled neatly and my makeup was its normal light shade, well, the one difference was that I put red lipstick instead of my normal nude one.“You look beautiful” Vladimir whispered when he stopped the car at a traffic light.“Coming from a person who didn’t want me going out wearing what I am?” I asked raising an eyebrow. Vladimir chuckled and took my hand in his, softly kissing my knuckle. I couldn’t help but blush at his gesture, the man really was making it harder for me to be angry with him.“I still think you look beautiful, and that
Vladimir:I frowned at the sight of Eliana’s tensed body.I had seen her when the two of us had our arguments, I have also seen her when her and mom got into heated conversations. But never did I picture seeing her frightened. Her body freezing in its spot as she refused to turn to face the man who stood behind her.“Cosa c’è di sbagliato, principessa? Hai preso la lingua?” Alberto D’Angelo asked. What’s wrong, princess? Cat got your tongue?“Cosa vuoi, Alberto?” Eliana asked. I frowned in confusion when she turned around to face the man. He raised an eyebrow in amusement and leaned down to her, his eyes glaring daggers at her. What do you want, Alberto?“Non posso congratularmi con un… amico? Ma poi di nuovo, ti ha portato via a me” Alberto’s words made me tense before I slammed my glass on the table. Can’t I congratulate a… friend? B
Eliana:My hands shook as I watched Vladimir walk out of the suite.He had gotten a call from Luka, and whatever it was, he left the room without saying a word to me. His angered expression which was both filled with rage and disappointed was stuck in my head. It played over and over again, and no matter how much I tried, the image just seemed to appear whenever I blinked.The fact that he found out the way he did killed me, I didn’t want it to be this way; but then again, I never thought of a way of telling him to begin with. Maybe because we were never actually a couple, but the betrayal on his expression broke my heart, and the thing was, I couldn’t blame him. He had been mostly honest with me, he didn’t lie about who he was or where he came from. Where I, I hid the fact that I wasn’t the person he believed me to be.Sure, I was raised and grew as a Morris, but I was never their biological daughter. But here I was, lying to him
Vladimir:I sat on the couch with a drink in my hand as I fought to process what Eliana told me.I had to admit, I wasn’t upset with the fact of who she was. Her being born of a different father wasn’t her fault; but the fact that she knew of it and didn’t tell me hurt me more than I could express. I put my glass down as I waited for her to walk out of her bedroom, the woman was inside fearing my reaction since I had kicked her to her bedroom last night.It was about eleven when she opened the door to her bedroom and walked out to the living room. Her eyes avoided mine as she waited for me to either speak to her or ask her to leave “what are you doing here, Eliana?”“Are you going to keep kicking me out whenever you see me approach?” She asked.“You are in no position to answer a question with a question, Eliana. But to assure you, I didn’t mean it in that sense” I said looking her in the
Eliana:I paced around my room as I feared the worst of what Vladimir could plan to be my fate.The worst being him sending me back home to my family where they would sell me in a heartbeat after beating the hell out of me, and that was something that I couldn’t afford; I hadn’t left that hellhole to return back to it this easily. The anger that my husband showed wouldn’t escape my mind no matter how hard I tried to ignore it, not to mention the fact that I have been locked in this room for a week now.I had tried talking to him, even tried joining him on the same table. But nothing, not a word left his mouth to me, and when it did, he was either scolding or snapping at me about the same thing. But I couldn’t blame him, in his mind, I betrayed his trust by hiding what I did; he couldn’t see the consequence that I would have faced if I told him about it, or maybe he did, he just didn’t want to deal with facing them.Forc
Vladimir:“I can’t believe that you’re forcing your wife into this” dad scolded. I rolled my eyes at him but didn’t bother answering.If he thought that I liked this, then he was very wrong. But we had men who needed to learn their lessons, and one of them being my twin brother who thought that it would be okay to host such an auction in MY territory and land.Flashback:“What?” Eliana asked looking me in the eye.“The auction is being organized by Viktor. I know that you don’t want to be there, and I know that you don’t want to face your dad with this. But I need to stop them, and I don’t want you to live in fear of the threat your dad put you through” I said looking my wife in the eye. The two of us were sitting on the couch. I cupped her cheeks to make her look at me “malyshka, I know you’re scared, but I will be sure to pay the highest bid.
Eliana:My heart raced against my ribcage as I stared at Alberto’s lifeless body.Dad’s eyes were wide in both fear and shock, and I could tell that he was trying to keep himself composed as not to flinch in front of Vladimir. Though that was almost impossible considering the fact that Vladimir had the place surrounded by his men, and they were all armed.Luka guided me to my husband who wrapped his arm around me as soon as I reached him. The action alone earned a glare from dad, his eyes met mine “you little lying…”Dad took a step forward, and to my surprise had the guts to raise his hand as if to slap me. However, the slap never came as Vladimir unwrapped his arm from around me, and held his hand midair. Luka wrapped his arm around my waist and pulled me to stand behind him, shielding me from my father’s eyes.I couldn’t see what was happening being blocked by Luka’s back, but dad’s wail of
Vladimir:I walked out of the bathroom and smiled when I saw that Eliana was asleep.She was curled up in the blanket, her wet hair sprawled on the pillow though she didn’t seem to care as exhaustion took over her body. I couldn’t blame her, I was surprised she was able to stand in the shower to begin with after everything she’s been through today.I slowly walked toward her, she was asleep in sweat pants and a grey long sleeved shirt while I wore black sweat pants. I laid by her side and wrapped my arms around her pulling her to my chest.What she had done for me was something that I couldn’t think of a way to repay her for. The woman ignored every sense of being self-conscious and went on ahead doing something that I knew she was against, and she didn’t it without blinking. I couldn’t help but admire her for the strength that she showed in their too, the fact that she trusted me despite everything telling her not to a
