Third Person POV"Marry me, Jewel," Henry said, on his knees with his hand stretching the jewelry box forward. Jewel gasped again and looked at the ring. It was a real diamond silver ring that reflected rainbow colors on the wall as soon as the sun fell on it. It was beautiful. Everything was beautiful. This was what she wanted. This was what she needed. "Henry..." She was utterly speechless. She didn't know how to bring her words out. On the other hand, Hakeem was scared that she might not be ready. That he might have read the signals too fast. That she was going to say no. "I love you so much, Jewel.

HENRY'S POVMy parents were having an annual get-together that coincidentally fell on my father's sixty-fifth birthday but I didn't want to go. Jewel was making me go anyway because she knew I couldn't say no to her. She came into my room to see me still seated, not dressed up. She wasn't dressed either but unlike me, she wanted to go to this party so she can dress up at any time."Baby, why are you not dressed?" She asked me, sitting in the bed beside me."I don't want to..." I started and she frowned at me, causing my words to cut short."You have started again, Henry. Why would you even say that?" She stated, looking at me with concern."I just don't wish to be among stuck politicians and business tycoons. I already have a lot on my plate as much as I can remember." I looked at her and she exhaled, bringing her hand to my face and stroking it gently."H
Recap from previous chapterOn cue Ademola came out of the theatre and walked towards them, removing the bloody glove and disposing them. Everyone sitting down, stood up immediately they sighted her."Ademola, how is my son ?" Taju asked even before Jewel could. Jewel could feel him trying to be calm but there was an edge in his tone."He is stable now, but he is unconscious. So, we have wheeled him to his private Ward and we just see what happens." Ademola said."Were there any complications. Is he going to be perfectly fine?" Jewel asked her and Ademola smiled."He is in shape. We were able to remove the bullet before it when deeper into the abdomen. It was so close to damaging his liver but we got there in time to remove it." Ademola explained and everyone heaved a sigh of relief."Can we see him?" Jewel made to move but Ademola stopped her.
Recap from last chapter. We were lying in each other's arms, naked. My fingers ran through Jewel's hair, combing through it."You don't have to do it tomorrow." I whispered, turning to look at her.

She replied, turning to look at me."It's time I teach that asshole some Manners."________________________________________Third Person POV"I'm so happy to see you made it."

Recap from the last chapter. I dashed into the police station and went straight to the interrogation room where they were definitely questioning Selene, ignoring the calls of the police men that stood by the reception table. I got to the interrogation room and met Henry, with the DPO and Selene handcuffed. Henry looked at me in awe. "What are you doing here?" He asked me. "She still hasn't confessed." He chipped in, pointing to Selene who just sat motionless in the chair, her eyes blood shot from so much crying. I began to feel pity for her. "That's because she didn't do it." I revealed breathlessly, shocking the hell out of them. Henry's eyes widened. "What did you just say?""I know who did it." I said and he urged me to go on. "It was Tayo that kidnapped Sharon."______________________________
Recap from last chapter. "I'm so much in love with you." He whispered and my breath caught in my throat. I'd never get tired of hearing him say that.Suddenly, his phone began to ring, breaking the spell we were in and he groaned, walking away from me to the living room where his phone was. Still awestruck, I began to button my shirt back up when phone was. Still awestruck, I began to button my shirt back up when I heard Henry scream in shock. Scared, I walked over to him to see him getting off the phone. "What's it? Why did you scream like that?" I asked immediately I got there.
