Note!!! Editing right now. Wait until February before reading. Thank you. She loathed him, yet he is the ideal guy to assist her in accomplishing her ambitions. He desired her, yet his very presence irritated her to no end. He cornered her and offered her a bargain, a bargain that was so hard to resist. She declined, but he persisted, and soon their war of wits began. Unfortunately, she falls prey to his seductive powers once again.View More
Daniella was aware that at least three of Ortega’s men were following them from a distance, but she choose to ignore the security people when they were just doing their job. Somehow, she was already used to having a shadow wherever she would go. After her three days vacation on the island, she returned home feeling refreshed and renewed. She and AJ had a blast on the island and she played with her like a kid. “Hello Simon, it’s been a while.” She greeted the youngest of Ortega’s men as if she had no idea that he was also on the island. “Hello Miss Ella, I’ll help you with your luggage.” Simon offered to take her luggage upstairs. Unknown to the woman, Marcus contacted him to watch over his family and he should report everything to him. “Thank you,” she was grateful for his help. As much as she wanted to check on her mother and report to her that they already arrived, she was tired and want to rest. Tomorrow, her life would be back to normal. Occupied with work and strug
Daniella had no choice but to stop her heart from beating toward Marcus and she should focus on something else. She must let go of her feelings and move forward because letting her emotions take over would be simply dangerous! In the morning, she woke up with a bright smile on her lips and Lilian looked at her as if she has gone crazy for always smiling when she was nursing a broken heart. At the breakfast table, she informed Paloma that she would take over overseeing the resort’s construction. She took a deep breath and took the chance, to be honest with her family members about another issue and said, “Marcus and I have broken up.” “Ella, what are you talking about?” Paloma was knocked for six at Daniella’s announcement and she refused to believe it when they looked good together. “I said, he and I broke up…and this time it’s for good.” She repeated her statement and she emphasized each word so that her mother wouldn’t misunderstand it. “This time it’s for good?
Daniella bit her lip when Marcus questioned her why she came. Was he not happy to see her at all? Daniella was still seething in anger towards his employer why did he allow that horrible man to beat him in the first place? “Should I consider your question as a sign that you don’t want to see me anymore?” Daniella took offense at his tone but regardless of how he would look at her, she wouldn’t give up on him. She glared at the man who treated her like a pest when she was just being kind to help him. “It’s not what I mean, Dani. I’m just asking why you came here, and how did you know where I was. Wait, did you stalk me?” His nostrils flared and he tightened his lip as he imagined that the woman was probably stalking him. What happened to her statement that she didn’t want him anymore in her life? Marcus narrowed his eyes at Daniella while he waited for her answer. “Of course not! Why should I do that? It just happened that I come here for business and saw you today at the
Troy Ramirez was paranoid that Philip Madrigal would come to his office anytime so he always prepared himself for the old man’s arrival. He picked up the intercom and bellowed, “Is Alicia not here yet?” “She just arrived sir,” the secretary replied. He put down the receiver and waited for Alicia to come in and when he heard the door open, Troy immediately stood to meet her. “What took you so long?” he yelled at the woman for taking her time in coming to his office. Alicia raised her eyebrows at Troy and replied, “I’m not one of your employees so don’t treat me like one.” The woman was right and Troy needed to calm down or his wrecked nerves would get the worst in him and he was afraid of the outcome. “Call your boyfriend and ask him to forgive me, do it now please.” “What have you done to him and where is he?” Alicia suspected that Troy made a mistake in hurting her boyfriend and then he was scared that Marcus would retaliate. She sneered at him and asked, “Why
Daniella didn’t expect to receive a call from Gerald, telling her that Marcus was working for a man named Troy Ramirez, Alicia’s brother. She was having her breakfast at Puso Bistro and she enjoyed their champorado and Arroz Caldo which tasted awesome. It was a buffet breakfast that she got to enjoy for free by staying at one of their suites, and although she couldn’t eat every dishes they offered, she appreciated how the manager was hands-on in checking everything that needed a refill. The hotel was recommended by one of her friends who loved their top-notch services. Arguably, the bistro has become one of her favorite restaurants in the city. Fortunately, Daniella was blessed with good luck because Troy’s office was just beside the hotel where she was staying. She could just check it out later because Daniella needed a concrete plan on how to approach Marcus without aggravating Alicia in the process. It was quarter to ten in the morning when Daniella smiled at the recep
Troy was hopping mad after reading the report about Marcus Madrigal! No wonder that the man looked familiar when he first saw him because he was the same man who took away his angel, and in the end, he had to kill that woman and her daughter to avenge his wrong feeling. He was furious that Alicia assisted his enemy in entering his territory! A few years had already passed and he could still remember the anguish on Veronica’s husband’s face as he witness how his family was killed in front of him. Over the years, it gave him satisfaction while know that the man she chose instead of him was suffering! Did Marcus find out about his involvement in that incident? But how? It was cleanly done and no evidence to point out that he was behind it. Moreover, all the men involved in that incident were already dead and he was the only one who remained to live. Still, he couldn’t be at peace unless he would send Marcus back to hell. He was enraged and Troy believed that Liza could soothe
In her boredom, Daniella developed a new habit and that was bingeing on Korean dramas. She searched online for the must-watch and soon she was lost in the world of Korean dramas where the boyfriends were all perfect and if ever there were flaws, it only make them even more attractive. For a week, she exhausted herself by staying up all night to watch her favorite shows and Lilian already scolded her for looking like a zombie every morning. “Are you going to continue being like this, Ella? You are my matron of honor, so you also have to look your best, but with your appearance now, we have to hire the best make-up artist for you to look pretty.” Lilian eyed the woman from head to toe and grimaced at how dry Daniella’s skin has become, and the dark circle around her eyes was horrible to look at. She looked tired and stressed! “It’s your time to shine on your wedding day, Lil. So, just don’t mind me, okay?” Daniella dissuaded Lilian to mind her appearance because she wasn’t rea
Every day, she had to lie to AJ about the whereabouts of her father. Philip and Paloma also wondered why it was so sudden that Marcus was summoned by his friend to assist in the farm. Just like before, she didn’t tell everyone about the real reason why Marcus was no longer in the house. She lied that Samuel Velasquez needed an extra farmhand as his supervisor had to take a few days off due to an emergency. The lie was perfectly devised and Daniella almost believed it as well. Even if Marcus was no longer in the house, Philip Madrigal has all the reasons to stay since his only daughter was getting married. Lilian was enthusiastic about the wedding and even when they hired the best wedding coordinator that they could find, Lilian insisted on incorporating her personal touch into the giveaways, so at night, she and Lilian would usually work overtime to finish the giveaways on schedule. Although it was a bother to work on super glues, she didn’t mind it all. It kept her occupied, and
