“You still haven’t changed Austin! You were the one that wronged us and you suppose to feel sorry about it because we’ve been friends since childhood but you betrayed that friendship especially to Miguel,” she scoffed.

” The world does not only revolve around you Nadine and it doesn’t revolve around the Montes-Tech too, soon you will all go down and come to seek for my help,”

” Not for once have I ever wished you bad Austin but indeed people change. Suit yourself loser! she said as she walked back in.
“What sort of disappointment is that! Now what are we gonna do? Where can we find a singer at this time, ” a woman said so frustrated to the man she was talking to.

“It’s just too late already,” the man sighed.

” It’s never too late while am here, ” Nadine said with a smile while they turn to her.

” Huh! Nadine Montes! They both chorused surprised to see her.

” Maybe I can fill in the gap for you,”

“Leonard again! She said with a frown wondering why she keep seeing ugly faces around.

“What is he doing here,”

He was in an impeccable gold coloured suit with gilded bu-ttons to match, his shoes and everything about him scream wealth as he look so handsome as ever.

“Isn’t that Enzo,” she wondered as she turn and look at her dad who was shocked as well.

Miss Gemma Dante,” he called out while there was a loud ovation and many camera flashes from every angle.
Gemma stepped in elegantly dressed in long strapless gown, looking so se-xy and beautiful as she peck Lorenzo and stood beside.

“She’s the one dear to me and i want to make it official in front of the public to avoid any rumours,” Lorenzo said.
The look on Austin’s face was priceless when he saw Lorenzo. He wasn’t expecting that, or even someone who look like Lorenzo.

“Did Lorenzo have a brother somewhere? He asked himself trying to fix the puzzle because he was very sure Lorenzo was dead that night and there’s no way he could survived that fire.

“He looks so much like Lorenzo,” Austin keep a-ssuring himself…
“While growing up a lot of people never believed in me, alot of people hated, rejected and betrayed me,” Lorenzo started as he sighted Leonard. The look on his his face was something else.

“It looks like some people have just seen a ghost ,” he said while Austin’s heart skip a bit as he bend his head and quickly walk out.

“This can’t be true…,” He a-ssured himself.
“And even the one I thought will stand by me, never did, they all left. All thanks to the gift of men I have throu-ghmy late mom. And a special thanks to my love who never gave up on me but always loved me,” he said clasping his hands together with Gemma.

” I will give a brief history of the E-Empire and how it all started…,” He said.
Josie just stood there as he watched Lorenzo like a ghost. Wondering if this is really the Lorenzo he knew or someone who just looked like him.
After Lorenzo speech he got down the stage while Marcel came up the stage.

“Thank you so much Sir,” he said..
” Ma’am… Are you ready? The woman tapped Nadine jolting her out of her thought.

“Oh.. you’re crying? Are you okay? She asked so concerned wondering what’s making her shed those tears.

“Am fine,” Nadine quickly wiped her tears and let out a sad smile.

“Am really sorry Ma’am but I don’t think I can sing here again,” Nadine said.

“Why! I thought you’ve agree to do that. Are you also gonna disappoint us at the dime minute, you shouldn’t have give us hope the ,” the woman scoffed feeling so disappointed already.

Gemma’s heart skip a bit when she saw Nadine on the stage, she looked at Lorenzo and saw all his attention was on her.

“Did you know she’s gonna sing tonight?”Gemma asked him.

Nadine eyes meet with Lorenzo’s but she quickly looked away. Her focus was on the guitar as she start to sing…

Nadine sing perfectly as she concentrate on every strings that she strims.
Everyone was amazed as the whole place was quiet listening to the melody.

Lorenzo stood up and went out..

“All these will end up sabotaging my newly relationship with Lorenzo, ” Gemma said so angry to herself as she looked at Nadine one last time before going after Lorenzo.
There was a loud ovation when Nadine was done singing, she quickly step down as she rushed outside to see if she can see Lorenzo.
She felt a hand pull her and she turn and saw Leonard.

“Are you looking for him? Leonard smirked while she slapped him and jerk his hands away from her.

“Don’t ever your lay filthy hands on me,” she warned.

“Stop acting tough Nadine, that isn’t Lorenzo,” he said.

“he is Lorenzo! She yelled back at him.

” Lorenzo is dead, you buried him yourself or have you now become so dumb to forget that it was only two people that died and that’s Lorenzo and Amber his bit-ch ,”

” You aren’t the one to tell me that!

“And where’s Eric? He asked.

” I will never allow you come near my son. Keep your distance Leon! She said as she hurriedly went out but bumped into Gemma outside.

“Are you looking for someone? Gemma asked.

” Yeah.. I just want to have a word with Mr Ethan,” Nadine said.

“Oh my boyfriend! He’s busy,” Gemma said.

” Please is that his real name? Nadine asked.

“Is there something.. that’s Ethan and that’s his real name and we all know he’s from California. You look so tensed up! anything wrong? Gemma asked pretending not to know anything.

“No..,” Nadine nodded while Gemma glare at her before leaving. Having a close look at Nadine made her feel intimidated. She really look more beautiful in real life than pictures, indeed people were right when they Nadine is an epitome of beauty and any man would fall for her beauty at first sight.

“The earlier we leave manila the better for me” Gemma thought.


After the party Nadine returned back home looking all moody and sad. She had a sleepless night thinking about what happened. No wonder everything about him looks so familiar to her even when she was in California. She wondered if that is truly Lorenzo or someone who looks like him but her heart keeps telling her it’s her Enzo no matter how [email protected] he pretend.
The next morning…????
“Isn’t that Lorenzo? Josie asked when they were having breakfast.

” He looks so much like him and I think he might be the one,” Ethan shrugged.

” The guy you meet? Julianna asked.

“You’ve seen Lorenzo.. after a very long time? Ca-ssie asked surprised to hear that too.

“Lorenzo! Is it my dad? Eric asked with a smile.

” You saw him yesterday mom? He asked looking so curious.

” Not really Eric. Just go back your room this adult discussion,” Julianna said to him while he nodded then walked back to his room.

“That means Lorenzo was alive all this while? Ca-ssie asked.

“Then who was the one I buried? Nadine asked as she stood up, her mind was occupied with lost of thoughts. She have so many questions to ask but no one can answer her except that Mr. Ethan or Lorenzo she wondered.

“Am going to see that Mr Ethan by all means today,” she said so determined.

” Are you sure about that? Josie asked her.

” Ever since I saw him yesterday my peace has seized. I need to know the truth, I deserve to know the truth even for the sake of Eric. I want to know the truth atleast for my sanity. And am finding that truth today,” Nadine said as she picked up her handbag then walked out…
