|| Aurora ||
“What?!” We all exclaimed simultaneously.
Then there’s a thick silence in the room,,,, everyone is processing what the General just said.
I’m the most shocked of all.
“G-girlfriend?!” I whisper.
He clearly heard me but chooses to ignore me,, and pu-ll me even more closer.
“G-general,,,,”
[email protected] shuts his mouth as the General s£nt him a harsh glare.
His mother points her perfectly manicured f!nger at me.
“Ian, you,,,, she,,,,”
She scoffs and crosses her arms around her che-st.
“I don’t believe you!” She said.
The General frowns.
“Why do you say that, mom?!”
She walks round us and st©ps in front of me,,, she lifts my chin up with her thumb.
“If she’s your girlfriend as you claim,,, someone you are inti-mate with”
She leaves me and turn her attention to the General.
“If you two are so close,, why do you still have your mask on?”
Hmm, why do I feel like this woman is being a bit bit-chy,,, I must speak up.
I put on my fake happy smile.
“Mrs Morgan, I asked him to put on the mask,, it’s for our role pla-y!”
“Role pla-y?!”
“Hmm-mmm!” I hummed and nod, but she shakes her head and scoffed.
“I know my son, for the past ten years,, he has wore masks only when someone he is not familiar with,,, or someone he doesn’t trust is around”.
I turn to the General,, he isn’t saying anything. He only gulped, I watch as his adam’s apple move.
I stomp on his feet and he hissed lowly, he faces his mother with a smile,,, a fake smile.
“Mom, breakfast is re-ady, why not let [email protected] take you to the dinning room,,, my girlfriend and I will join you soon!” He said in a firm voice.
His mother looks at me for a few minutes before she nods and walks away with [email protected]
I peep out, I make sure his mother is out of earsh0t before I face him with a glare.
“Why did you stomp on my feet?!” He snarls at me.
“Why did you tell your mother I’m your girlfriend?! And besides my name is not Angel,,, it’s Aurora!”
“I did it to save your as-s!”
“Did I tell you that my as-s nee-ded saving?!”
“Of course it does!”
“And what are you saving my as-s from?”
“I can’t tell you,,, but since I have alre-ady told her that you are my girlfriend,, you will have to [email protected]
I smile, [email protected] role with him,,,be his girlfriend,,, that’s a big role,,a very big role.
I’m gonna make so much money from this,,,I know I will become rich before I leave this mansion.
“How much are we talking about here?”
He frown.
“What do you mean?!”
“I nee-d to know how much you are gonna pay me,,, I’ll scale the amount and then I will know how convincing you want my acting to be!”
“Aren’t I paying you enough money as my personal doctor?!”
I gap at him,,,boy you are loaded, so why are you being stingy.
“General, I’m a doctor, acting is not anyway [email protected] of my profession,,,,but for fact that I’m so soft hearted and I hate to see people suffer.
I decided to help you,,,of course you will pay me for my acting,,, you know it’s not easy to put on a show that can convince someone”
He stays silent for a few minutes before he shakes his head.
“No! I’m not paying you for that!” He said.
Hmm,,,,well two can [email protected] game,,,after all you nee-d me most.
I shake my head in disagreement.
“What do you mean by shaking your head?!”
“I ain’t doing it for free!”
He narrows his eyes.
We both did a staring contest,,, seeing I’m not re-ady to agree, he speaks.
“Fine! I’ll pay $1000!”
“No, that is too low,, I can only manage,,,,,” I raise my ten f!ngers. “$10,000”
“$10,000?!”
I nod.
“No! That’s way too much!”
“Come on, don’t be a stingy billionaire. If you don’t spend your money now, when you die who’s gonna inherit them”
“The highest I can pay is $5000! Take it or leave,,,, I can just tell my mom that we just broke up!”
$5000,,, that’s not bad right?
I smiled.
“Ok! I’ll take it”
“Good, now go freshen up, I’ll come get you and we will join my Mom at the dinning room”
“Do the transfer first”
“What do you mean? That I intend to cheat you?!”
“Nope! But money in my account first!”
He angrily reach for his phone and furiously typed on it,soon he hands it to me.
“Put in your bank details!”
“Gladly!”
I typed my bank details in and hands his phone back to me. Few seconds later, my phone beeped inside my [email protected]
The General look at me with hooded eyes and his gaze move to my lower b©dy. I quic-kly cover it with my hands and chuckles nervously.
“I just received the alert” I told him.
I can alre-ady imagine my cheeks turned red.
“That is half the payment,,,when the job is done, I’m gonna transfer the balance”
I pout, but didn’t complain.
“Cool” I said.
“Now, go and freshen up!”
I nod and turn to leave, but I halt when I realized something.
I turn back to him and plaster my fake smile on my face.
“General,,,”
“Ian!” He cuts me off.
I frown in confusion.
“What?”
“Call me ian!” He said.
“Why would I do that? I mean,, I’m alre-ady used to addressing you as General”
“If we want my mom to believe our little show,,, then we should be more inti-mate,,, address me by my first name,,, Ian!”
“I can call you by your first name?”
He nods.
“You are not gonna punish me,?!”
He shakes his head.
I smiled and cleared my throat.
“Ian?” I tried.
His expression is blank but he doesn’t seem to be angry either.
“Ian! Ian! Ian!” I called his name multi-ple times, he still doesn’t react.
I giggled,,,
“Well, since we are on first name basis, I’d like you to call me by my first name too”
“What is your name?” He asked.
“Are you a dumb head?”
“How dare you! Such boldness!” He growled.
“I just told you my name few minutes ago, how can you forget it so easily if you aren’t a dumb head!”
“Don’t push my bu-ttons,,, now tell me your name!”
I mimicked him and he glares at me.
“My name is Aurora! Aurora Grace Cox!”
“Aurora?!” He called my name.
Surprisingly, I love the way my name roll off his ton-gue.
My name sounds so S-xy, sweet coming out of his mouth,,,, the way he said my name makes me swoon.
He shakes his head with a de-ep frown.
“I like the name I gave you best”
“What name?”
“Angel”
“I don’t like it”
“It’s not your call”
Whatever,,,, I’ll just let it be,, after all I’m not after the name, I’m after the money,,, it’s all about money.
“Now, Ian, we’ve talked about the payments, it’s time to talk about the first step to take,,,, to convince your mom that we are really [email protected]!ngand that you trust me!”
“And what’s the step?”
I went on ti-ptoe and reach for his mask, but he catches my hand before I can t©uçh it.
“What are you trying to do?!!”
“Take your mask off”
“No! I never take it off in front of strangers!”
“See? That’s one of the reasons your mother won’t believe us. She knows you don’t take off your mask in front of strangers.
So, if you don’t take if off when I’m around, she’ll see throu-gh our acting”
“That shouldn’t be your problem!”
“Why are you so stupid?!”
“You. Said. What?!”
Oops! My filter mouth just can’t hold anything,,, why did I say that.
I giggle dramatically.
“I said,,,,, why are you so,,,, special! Right, special”
He glares at me and take my hand, he leads me to the door and push me out.
“Go freshen up!” Then he slams the door.
I huffed.
I don’t un-derstand why he’s so adamant about removing his mask,,, I bet he’s so hideous and he’s ashame of facing my beautiful face with his hideous face.
I giggle, I can’t blame God for creating me so beautifully.
Anyway, I should head to my room now.

|| Javier ||
“Aurora!” I called.
I knock on her door but she didn’t answer. I give the door a little push and it open, my eyes scan around the room, but I didn’t find her.
I enter and stand in front of her be-d, my hands in my [email protected]!st as I wonder where she is.
Ok, let me tell you guys what brou-ght me to her room.
I thought about what Max told me, and I realize I kinda love Aurora. So I have made up my mind to ask her out today and tell her how I feel, then we’ll see where it will take us.
“Aurora, are you in here?”
Still no response.
Maybe she’s attending to Ian, I will come back later.
I turn to leave, but something laying on the door of her be-d catches my attention. I pick it up and realize it’s a piece of paper.
I intended to keep it back, but a word caught my eye. “Ian’s mansion”
I open the paper and re-ad each word with my eyes wi-de-ned in shock.
*I have always known you are alive
But I thought you lost your memory as you change your name
I must say you are smart and bold enough to come into the General’s mansion with a fake identity
I won’t take any action for now but I’d advise you st©p looking for me and carry on with your life*
What?!
Did this note land here by mistake?
No,,,, that’s not right, it seems like Aurora has seen it.
But if this note was written to her, what could be her motive,,,why would she risk her life coming into the General’s mansion with a fake identity?
I fold the paper and tuck it in my [email protected] pocket,,,I can’t let anyone see if for now,,,at least until I talk to Aurora about it.
*
I’m almost close to my room, when Dylan, my as-sistant, rush towards me.
“Sir, your mother is back”
“Where is she?”
“In the dinning room,,, seems like she’s about to have breakfast”
I sigh.
“Ok, let’s go there!”
*
“Mom!” I called my Mom.
She raises her head and sees me, she quic-kly got off her chair and rush to [email protected] me.
“Ou, my baby boy! You’ve grown up so quic-kly!”
I roll my eyes and break free from her death grip.
“Mom, I’m no longer a baby, I’m a full grown man”
She pu-lls me down by my ear.
“Ow! Ow!” I wince.
“No matter how tall and hvge you are, you are still my baby, am I clear?”
“Yes, ma’am,,,, c-can you plea-se let go of my ear now?”
She smiles and re-leases my ear.
“Come on” she leads me to a seat and sat me down.
She stares at me for a few minutes, her smile grows with each pas-sing second.
“How is the world? I believe you’ve done enough traveling and you have decided to stay for good this time”
She shakes her.
“The world is fine,,,, but I’m not done travelling yet,,, there are so many beautiful things that I want to see”
“Why? We miss you,,, don’t you miss us?”
I wish.
“I miss you guys, way more than you miss me”
“Then stay!”
“I can’t honey” she looked around. “This place has too many bad memories for me, I don’t think I can stand it”
“Mom,,,,, ”
“I still feel guilty, Javier. I feel like everything that happened back then is my fault” she said in a broken voice.
I feel her pain,,, watching your best friend die in front of you without doing anything to help is traumatizing!
“Phoebe’s parents wouldn’t have died had I arrived early,,, I know your brother still blame me for it, he’s still holding a grudge.
But what he doesn’t un-derstand is, I didn’t lose only my friend that day,,, I lost my husband too!” She dabs her eyes with her handkerchief.
I feel sorry for her.
“Mom, let’s not talk about that now,,, today that you are here with us, let’s enjoy a quiet breakfast” I suggest, I hate talking about sad events.
She laughs briefly.
“You are right. But let’s wait for your brother”
“Oh? Have you seen him?”
“Yeah,, he’ll be here soon with his girlfriend”
I frown.
“Girlfriend?!” I asked just to be sure my ear caught the right word.
“Yes”
I bur-st into fits of laughter.
“Mom, that joke is really funny!”
But my laughter died down when I notice she isn’t laughing along.
“You are serious?”
She nods.
“Yes, they will be here soon”
“Ian? Girlfriend? Ok, I really nee-d to see this,,,, it sounds so unbelievable”

|| Aurora ||
I twirl in front of my mirror and smile in satisfaction.
To [email protected] [email protected], I must be the [email protected] I make sure I’m not overdressed, but what I have on is decent.
“It’s show time!” I wi-nk at the other me inside the mirror.
Right on cue, I heard a knock on my door. I rush to the door and flung it open, a perfect smile on my face.
I close my eyes and fl!pmy hair.
“General, how do I look?!” I asked.
But the General didn’t reply me, so I open my eyes and,,,,,,,,,, oh my God!
I’m speechless!
Am I dreaming or is there really a demigod standing in front of me?
He has the kind of face that st©pped you in your tracks, his tousled jet black hair is thick and lvstrous.
His eyes are a mesmerising shades of grey, accompanied with his dark eyebrows which sloped downwards in a serious expression.
He has prominent cheekbones and a well-defined chin and nose. His perfect palel-ips ripe for k!ssing, in fact I can alre-ady hear them calling my name.
He wore a black t-shi-t, his muscles r!pp£dacross every [email protected] of his b©dy.
He is obviously a seasoned warrior!
A f!nger snapped in my face and I j£rked out of my daze, I blinked ra-pidly.
“W-who are you?!” I asked.
He didn’t say anything, he’s just staring at me, a frown on his perfect face.
“Ah,,,, are you looking for someone?”
His frown de-epens.
Why does his expression reminds me of someone,,,,, the General.
I laughed briefly at the thought,,,, why did I even compare the General’s hideous face with this fine piece of art.
“Ok, I know you are beautiful,,,no handsome and smoking h0t,,,”
Wait why did I say that, I mentally [email protected] myself.
“But this is a lady’s room, so if you don’t mind,,,,, stepping aside”
I shut my door and made to walk away but he holds my right arm.
I frown.
“What are you doing?!”
Just then, I see [email protected] rushing towards us.
“General, your mother is getting angry” he reports.
I point my f!nger at the man holding me,,,, maybe I heard wrong.
“W-what did you just call him?” I asked to be sure.
“General!” [email protected] replies.
“H-he is the General?!”
“Yes!”
My mouth hang up and I step away from him.
He’s nothing like I imagine,,,his face is not hideous at all, and he look so young.
Why do I find it ha-rd to believe that he’s the General?
“I don’t believe you,,,this is not Ian, go and call Ian for me”
“Why? Did I disappoint you with my appearance?” He speaks.
Ok, now I believe he’s really the General.
I’m shocked,,,how can someone be this handsome,,I must say Javier is no where near his brother in terms of handsomeness.
“Are you re-ady? Let’s go!”
I scoffs.
“That is no way to talk to your girlfriend!” I told him.
“I’ll talk to you anyhow I like”
“Humph! As if I care, you are the one putting on a show for your mother!”
“Talk to me in that tone again and you will regret it!”
I ti-ptoe and pinch his cheeks.
“You are a handsome, young man, st©p being so upti-ght,,,,st©p behaving like an old man”
He pushes my hands away.
“Don’t t©uçh my face! Let’s go!”
“Whatever!” I take his hand and place it on the small of my back.
“What are you doing?!”
“This will help convince your mom, let’s go”
“No!”
He re-moves his hand from my back and interwine his f!ngerswith mine.
“Let’s go!” He said.
We walk throu-gh the hallway, when we are almost there, I take a peek at him.
He’s so stiff and too serious.
“Smile!” I told him.
He glares at me but manage to put on a f0rç£d smile,,,,,more like a grimace though.

|| Javier ||
“So, Javier, is there any woman in your life?” Mom asked me.
I smile at her question,,,my mind goes back to Aurora.
“Yes, Mom” I nod.
“Who is she? tell me,,,is she a model? You know I love models”
I laughed briefly.
“She is not a model, she’s a doctor”
“Do I know her? What’s her name?”
“I don’t think you know her and her name is Au,,,,,”
“Mom!” Ian’s voice cuts me off.
My head snap to his direction and the smile on my face falters.
Why did Ian take off his mask?
Why is he holding Aurora’s hand?
I stand up.
“Bro, why are you holding Aurora’s hand?” I asked in a calm voice.
He pu-lls her even closer.
“Because she is my girlfriend, of course I’d hold her”
Is Aurora the girlfriend mom was talking about?
I turn to Mom.
“That’s his girlfriend!” Mom said.
I feel a pain in my che-st, the room suddenly [email protected]£ too small and I can ha-rd ly breathe.
Deja vu! It feels like deja vu!
It’s happening all over again,,,first it was phoebe, now it’s Aurora.
Phoebe choosed him, and now Aurora is still choosing him?
“Mom, bro, you guys should carry on, I suddenly feel sick”
“Oh no! What’s wrong Javier?” Mom asked.
“I’m fine, Mom, I just nee-d some fresh air. I’ll go for a walk”
I walk out before any of them can say anything.

“I can’t tell you,,, but since I have alre-ady told her that you are my girlfriend,, you will have to [email protected]
I smile, [email protected] role with him,,,be his girlfriend,,, that’s a big role,,a very big role.
I’m gonna make so much money from this,,,I know I will become rich before I leave this mansion.

“No, that is too low,, I can only manage,,,,,” I raise my ten f!ngers. “$10,000”
“$10,000?!”
I nod.
“No! That’s way too much!”
“Come on, don’t be a stingy billionaire. If you don’t spend your money now, when you die who’s gonna inherit them”
“The highest I can pay is $5000! Take it or leave,,,, I can just tell my mom that we just broke up!”
$5000,,, that’s not bad right?
I smiled.
“Ok! I’ll take it”
“Good, now go freshen up, I’ll come get you and we will join my Mom at the dinning room”
“Do the transfer first”

He glares at me and take my hand, he leads me to the door and push me out.
“Go freshen up!” Then he slams the door.

I don’t un-derstand why he’s so adamant about removing his mask,,, I bet he’s so hideous and he’s ashame of facing my beautiful face with his hideous face.
I giggle, I can’t blame God for creating me so beautifully.
Anyway, I should head to my room now.

“Sir, your mother is back”
“Where is she?”
“In the dinning room,,, seems like she’s about to have breakfast”
I sigh.
“Ok, let’s go there!”

“Mom!” I called my Mom.
She raises her head and sees me, she quic-kly got off her chair and rush to [email protected] me.
“Ou, my baby boy! You’ve grown up so quic-kly!”
I roll my eyes and break free from her death grip.
“Mom, I’m no longer a baby, I’m a full grown man”
She pu-lls me down by my ear.

“No matter how tall and hvge you are, you are still my baby, am I clear?”
“Yes, ma’am,,,, c-can you plea-se let go of my ear now?”w
She smiles and re-leases my ear.
“Come on” she leads me to a seat and sat me down.
She stares at me for a few minutes, her smile grows with each pas-sing second.
“How is the world? I believe you’ve done enough traveling and you have – to stay for good this time”
She shakes her.
“The world is fine,,,, but I’m not done travelling yet,,, there are so many beautiful things that I want to see”
“Why? We miss you,,, don’t you miss us?”
I wish.
“I miss you guys, way more than you miss me”
“Then stay!”
“I can’t honey” she looked around. “This place has too many bad memories for me, I don’t think I can stand it”
“Mom,,,,, ”
“I still feel guilty, Javier. I feel like everything that happened back then is my fault” she said in a broken voice.
I feel her pain,,, watching your best friend die in front of you without doing anything to help is traumatizing!
“Phoebe’s parents wouldn’t have died had I arrived early,,, I know your brother still blame me for it, he’s still holding a grudge.
But what he doesn’t un-derstand is, I didn’t lose only my friend that day,,, I lost my husband too!” She dabs her eyes with her handkerchief.
I feel sorry for her.
“Mom, let’s not talk about that now,,, today that you are here with us, let’s enjoy a quiet breakfast” I suggest, I hate talking about sad events.
She laughs briefly.
“You are right. But let’s wait for your brother”
“Oh? Have you seen him?”
“Yeah,, he’ll be here soon with his girlfriend”
I frown.
“Girlfriend?!” I asked just to be sure my ear caught the right word.
“Yes”
I bur-st into fits of laughter.
“Mom, that joke is really funny!”
But my laughter died down when I notice she isn’t laughing along.
“You are serious?”
She nods.
“Yes, they will be here soon”
“Ian? Girlfriend? Ok, I really nee-d to see this,,,, it sounds so unbelievable”

I twirl in front of my mirror and smile in satisfaction.
To [email protected] [email protected], I must be the [email protected] I make sure I’m not overdressed, but what I have on is decent.
“It’s show time!” I wi-nk at the other me inside the mirror.
Right on cue, I heard a knock on my door. I rush to the door and flung it open, a perfect smile on my face.
I close my eyes and fl!pmy hair.
“General, how do I look?!” I asked.
But the General didn’t reply me, so I open my eyes and,,,,,,,,,, oh my God!
I’m speechless!
Am I dreaming or is there really a demigod standing in front of me?
He has the kind of face that st©pped you in your tracks, his tousled jet black hair is thick and lvstrous.
His eyes are a mesmerising shades of grey, accompanied with his dark eyebrows which sloped downwards in a serious expression.
He has prominent cheekbones and a well-defined chin and nose. His perfect palel-ips ripe for k!ssing, in fact I can alre-ady hear them calling my name.
He wore a black t-shi-t, his muscles r!pp£dacross every [email protected] of his b©dy.
He is obviously a seasoned warrior!
A f!nger snapped in my face and I j£rked out of my daze, I blinked ra-pidly.
“W-who are you?!” I asked.
He didn’t say anything, he’s just staring at me, a frown on his perfect face.
“Ah,,,, are you looking for someone?”
His frown de-epens.
Why does his expression reminds me of someone,,,,, the General.
I laughed briefly at the thought,,,, why did I even compare the General’s hideous face with this fine piece of art.
“Ok, I know you are beautiful,,,no handsome and smoking h0t,,,”
Wait why did I say that, I mentally [email protected] myself.
“But this is a lady’s room, so if you don’t mind,,,,, stepping aside”
I shut my door and made to walk away but he holds my right arm.
I frown.
“What are you doing?!”
Just then, I see [email protected] rushing towards us.
“General, your mother is getting angry” he reports.
I point my f!nger at the man holding me,,,, maybe I heard wrong.
“W-what did you just call him?” I asked to be sure.
“General!” [email protected] replies.
“H-he is the General?!”
“Yes!”
My mouth hang up and I step away from him.
He’s nothing like I imagine,,,his face is not hideous at all, and he look so young.
Why do I find it ha-rd to believe that he’s the General?
“I don’t believe you,,,this is not Ian, go and call Ian for me”
“Why? Did I disappoint you with my appearance?” He speaks.
Ok, now I believe he’s really the General.
I’m shocked,,,how can someone be this handsome,,I must say Javier is no where near his brother in terms of handsomeness.
“Are you re-ady? Let’s go!”
I scoffs.
“That is no way to talk to your girlfriend!” I told him.
“I’ll talk to you anyhow I like”
“Humph! As if I care, you are the one putting on a show for your mother!”
“Talk to me in that tone again and you will regret it!”
I ti-ptoe and pinch his cheeks.
“You are a handsome, young man, st©p being so upti-ght,,,,st©p behaving like an old man”
He pushes my hands away.
“Don’t t©uçh my face! Let’s go!”
“Whatever!” I take his hand and place it on the small of my back.
“What are you doing?!”
“This will help convince your mom, let’s go”
“No!”
He re-moves his hand from my back and interwine his f!ngerswith mine.
“Let’s go!” He said.
We walk throu-gh the hallway, when we are almost there, I take a peek at him.
He’s so stiff and too serious.
“Smile!” I told him.
He glares at me but manage to put on a f0rç£d smile,,,,,more like a grimace though.

“So, Javier, is there any woman in your life?” Mom asked me.
I smile at her question,,,my mind goes back to Aurora.
“Yes, Mom” I nod.
“Who is she? tell me,,,is she a model? You know I love models”
I laughed briefly.
“She is not a model, she’s a doctor”
“Do I know her? What’s her name?”
“I don’t think you know her and her name is Au,,,,,”
“Mom!” Ian’s voice cuts me off.
My head snap to his direction and the smile on my face falters.
Why did Ian take off his mask?
Why is he holding Aurora’s hand?
I stand up.
“Bro, why are you holding Aurora’s hand?” I asked in a calm voice.
He pu-lls her even closer.
“Because she is my girlfriend, of course I’d hold her”
Is Aurora the girlfriend mom was talking about?
I turn to Mom.
“That’s his girlfriend!” Mom said.
I feel a pain in my che-st, the room suddenly [email protected]£ too small and I can ha-rd ly breathe.
Deja vu! It feels like deja vu!
It’s happening all over again,,,first it was phoebe, now it’s Aurora.
Phoebe choosed him, and now Aurora is still choosing him?
“Mom, bro, you guys should carry on, I suddenly feel sick”
“Oh no! What’s wrong Javier?” Mom asked.
“I’m fine, Mom, I just nee-d some fresh air. I’ll go for a walk”
I walk out before any of them can say anything.

|| Javier ||
I walk round the garden, taking in the fine fragrances of the flowers, trying to calm my nerves but it doesn’t seem to work.
My mind keeps going back to the way Ian held Aurora’s hand,,,the note I saw in her room comes back to my mind too.
“Sir, are you going to let your brother take her away too?” My as-sistant asked me.
I didn’t reply, I simply sigh and picked a withering rose flower.
“The gardeners aren’t doing a good job!” I said.
“I will see to it later”
I nod.
I continue staring at the flowers.
“Sir, about doctor Aurora, aren’t gonna do anything. That was how you lost Phoebe to the General too!”
I glared at him and he shuts his mouth immediately,,,I might not be a stone face like my brother.
But we have one thing in common, when we get angry we are unst©ppable, we can do unimaginable things,,so it’s better you stay away from us.
“I’m not gonna fight with my brother, I’ll ask Aurora, if she doesn’t love me I will let her go and I will be happy to be her friend”
Also, I nee-d to find out why she [email protected]£ here un-der disguise.
“But you love her, sir!”
“What was never meant to be, can never be,,, no matter how ha-rd you try to push it!”
“But,,,, ”
“I don’t wanna hear a word of this anymore,, I’m gonna somewhere,, don’t follow me!”
Even if my brother has fallen in love with Aurora, I have to make walk sure he’s not walking into any danger.
Aurora’s motive is unknown for now,,, I must confirm it.

“Come, son, sit let’s eat!” Mrs Morgan ushered Ian.
Just when he was about to sit down, I pu-ll-ed his arm and smile overly bright.
“Baby, aren’t you gonna pu-ll out a chair for me?” In said in an oh, sweet voice.
He stares at me with a frown, I wi-nk and gestures at the chair.
His gaze right now is saying “I’m so gonna kill you” but I don’t care,,,, I mean when have I ever care about anything.
He pu-lls out a chair and I sit down.
“Thanks, baby!” I k!$$£d his cheek and I see him stilled for a minute or so.
“Ahem!” He clears his throat. “Welcome” grimace and sits next to me.
I look around the table, my mouth watered at the amount and sweet aroma of the food.
I quic-kly pick up the spoon place in front of me and serve myself a plate of rice,,,, but I halt when Ian grip my th!gh and pinch me so ha-rd .
I bite my lower l!pto st©p any sound from coming out.
“Angel,,, I think that rice is enough for you” he smiles at me, his hand still not leaving my th!gh. “remember you are a well mannered lady!” He said the last [email protected] throu-gh gritt teeth.
I frown,,, I don’t remember telling him I’m a well mannered lady. Then like a light bulb turn on, I remember the role I’m pla-ying.
I quic-kly turn back to Ian’s Mom, a sarcastic smile on my face.
“Mom,,, wait I can call you Mom right?”
She hesitate.
“I,,,you,,, Mom?” She asked.
“Thanks Mom!” I said even though she haven’t said yes yet.
“I’m sorry,,, plea-se don’t mind my manners,,, it’s just I didn’t have the chance to eat last night because Ian didn’t let me rest last night,,,, we did it all night!”
I hear Ian choke on his spit,,, he starts coughing non-st©p.
I sm-irk,,,, humph! Try to deprive me of my right of eating?
“You did what?!” His Mom asked.
“We did,,,,” ian [email protected] his hand on my mouth.
He smiles at me, his eyes daring me to speak one more word.
“Angel, you don’t nee-d to tell Mom that!”
I li-ck his palm with my ton-gue and he quic-kly re-moves it from my mouth.
“Gross!” He exclaims and start wiping it with a serviette.
I turn back to his Mom.
“Mom, Ian and I were up all night,,,, we ha-rd ly got any sleep early this morning”
“Y-you mean,,, you and Ian,,, y-you,,, y-you,,,, ”
I almost laugh at mrs Morgan’s speechlessness.
I glanced at Ian, he’s glaring at me,, I giggle.
He throws his spoon on the table and stands up.
“Mom, we will all have dinner together,,, my girlfriend is tired and she nee-ds rest”
“I’m not tired, love. Let’s sit and eat with Mom”
I see his Mom nod.
“No, angel, you are tired and you talk too much when you are tired, now come, I’ll tuck in”
“But my sweet love, I,,,,, ”
“Ok! That’s it!” He bends down and carry the chair with me still sitting on it.
“Ian, what are you doing?” His Mom asked.
“I’m taking her to her room”
“With the chair?” She asked.
“Yeah! It’s fun this way!”
I hold on to the chair very ti-ght, scared that I might fall.
“I-ian, can you put me down?”
He ignores me and continue walking.
Soon, we arrive at my door, he puts the chair down r0ûghly and I almost fall.
He looks at his wrist watch.
“You were bad just now, but I’m not gonna punish you now. I will s£nd for you later!”
He turns and start walking away.
“Where are you going?”
“My company! Not that it’s your business!”
I huffed. Damn billionaires,,, always arrogant!
I put the chair aside, later I’mma return it. I open my door and step into my room.
I walk right into a ha-rd surface, I gro-an .
Since when do I have a wall in front of my door,,, I raise my head and see Javier.
My mood lifted.
“Javier! How is your fever?” I asked as I reach out to check his temperature.
He re-moves my hand and that’s when I saw his face,,, he doesn’t look happy, in fact, he look angry.
“Javier, what’s wrong? What are you doing here?”
“What am I doing here? I think that should be my line!” He said angrily.
I frown.
“Huh?” What’s wrong with him.
“Who are you? And why did you come to my brother’s mansion un-der a disguise?”
What?!
Oh, no! Why is he asking me this? Did he find anything suspicious about me?
Or is my acting not good enough,,,,he saw throu-gh me?
Anyhow,,,I can’t admit it.
“What do you mean who am I, I’m Aurora Grace Cox of course,,,,and if I remember correctly, your brother invited me here to treat his deceased fiancee initially”
He scoffs as if he doesn’t believe me.
“You are lying! Tell me who you are and what your mission here is!”
“I don’t know what you are talking about, I don’t have any mission”
He looks at me blankly for a moment, then shakes his head. He reach into his jacket’s pocket and bring out a piece of paper.
He throws it at me.
“Then how do you explain this?!”
I open the paper and my world [email protected]
No,,this can’t be happening. I thought I kept it inside my bag,,,how did it manage to fall into Javier’s hands.
“T-this,,,, Javier,,,, I,,,,”
“Better start talking, not just talk, tell me the truth or this will get to my brother, and you know when that happens, things will get really ugly for you!”
There is no way I can lie out if this,,,but can I trust him with my secret?.
I sigh.
I guess I have no choice now,,,, maybe if I plead with him, he won’t tell it to his brother.
“Ok, I can tell you but plea-se promise you won’t tell Ian about it”
“I’m not ma-king any promises, not until I know what I’m promising!”
I nod and take a de-ep breath.
“Let’s sit down then”
“No! Speak!”
Wow! I didn’t know Javier got some action in him too.
“Well, let’s start with my real name. I’m Phoebe Grace Henderson! I’m an orphan and I,,,,,”
“Wait!” He cuts me off.
He looks at me with narrowed eyes.
“What did you say your real name is?”
“Phoebe Grace Henderson!”
“Phoebe?!”
“Yes!”
He frowns.
“Did your parents worked here ten years ago?!”
I nod.
“You are Phoebe?”
I nod again but he shakes his head and gr-ab my n£¢k, blocking my air pas-sage.
“You. Are. Lying!” He growled.
I shake my head desperately as I can’t speak, he lets go of my n£¢k.
I [email protected] for air and coughs.
“Prove to me that you are not lying”
“How?” I asked.
“Tell me something about me that only Phoebe and I knew when we were kids”
I scoff.
“You walked in on your dad doing it with his mistress!”
He stares at me with his mouth wi-de open, he look so speechless.
Then I found myself in a very ti-ght hvg.
“Oh my God! It’s really you! After so many years! Where did you go? Why did you left without any trace? Do you know how worried we were when we couldn’t find you?”
I managed to break free from his ti-ght hold.
“Javier, I didn’t mean to leave, I was f0rç£d to and me surviving was God’s mercy” I told him.
“Wait,,, so you recognize me all this time you’ve been here?”
“Well, I didn’t recognize you when I saw you at the coffee shop, but after I saw you here,,,, my memory of you [email protected]£ back.
You kinda change though,,, you look so different from kid Javier!”.
His ears turn red.
“Then why didn’t you tell me who you are when you recognize me?!”
“I was scared”
“Scared? Why?”
“I thought if I tell you who I was, you’d tell your brother and he would s£nd me out of the mansion”
“What?! Why would he s£nd you out,,, he will be thri-lled,,, do you know how long Ian has been looking for you?!
Do you know how much he has suffered without you all these years?!”
I shake my head and fall on my be-d.
“I don’t know Ian,,, he isn’t the one I wanted to look for me”
“Why?”
“The one I waited for is not Ian,,, the one whose name I called at night for five years isn’t Ian,,, the one I loved and was hoping would come and save me isn’t Ian”
Javier look at me in confusion.
“What are you talking about Aurora?”
“Where is Dean? Where is Dean I haven’t seen him anywhere in the mansion,,,, is he dead?”.
“You have seen Dean and he is very alive!”
“Oh?” I look around. “Where is he,,,, cause I can’t find him anywhere!”
Javier walk towards my be-d and sit next to me.
“Aurora,,, no Phoebe, Ian and Dean are the same person!”
I stand up abruptly.
“What do you mean?!”
“I mean, Ian is Dean and Dean is Ian!”
“Huh? How?”
“His full name is, Ian Dean Morgan!”
I freeze in my sp©t.
So he mean the General is Dean,,,, my Dean?
“You mean General Ian is Dean?”
“Yes!”
So,, I have been with Dean for the past days?
“B-but he didn’t tell me his name is Ian”
“That’s because he didn’t tell you his full name”
Javier is right,,, I ba-rely see Dean in the mansion. The few times I see him, I just call him Dean and none of the and servants around dare call him by his name.
He only gave me the right to call him Dean.
“Ian never st©pped looking for you Phoebe,,, you are the reason he refused other ladies all these years. He’s being hoping to meet you” Javier said.
“Dean is Ian and Ian is Dean!” I repeat.
“You should let him know you are here”
“No! I won’t, the Dean I knew is long dead to me”
