EPISODE 04πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡

 

“That will be like a dream come true Dr.

Collins.” I said with a small smile just to think

of the possibility to hear my dads voice once

again made me feel over joyed. “I have to go

now, please call me if you see any change in

him, I’ll do my best to come more often.”

After the hospital I went to the mall to shop

for an outfit for tonight cocktail party , with the

credit card Adam gave me, I’m not very happy

using his card or going with him, but after last

night I wouldn’t dare to go against him, is

better to avoid all kind of confrontations with

that man.

I picked a mid length black dress with sequins

all over, it had a small cut on the right,

showing a little bit of my tight. I thought it

looked elegant but at the same time modern

and sexy because it hugged my curves like if it

was made just for me. I paired it with golden

heels and golden accessories.

This is the dress Emma picked:

With my hair I decided to go for a messy low

bun, keeping some strings of hair in the sides

of my face. My makeup was a smokey eye,

which I haven’t done in a very long time but

still managed to do a great job.

I took a long breath and left my room, silently

praying to catch Adam in a good mood

tonight.

ADAM’S POV

I was impatiently waiting at the end of the

staircase, the nerve of the woman for keeping

me waiting. I looked at my watch for the 5th

time

when a sound coming from upstairs made

me look up, and there she was, I’ll never admit

that she looked gorgeous, it was the perfect

combination of sexiness and sophistication.

The back on of her dress accentuated her

beautiful red hair.

I gulped when she started going down the

stairs, she looked nervous, and I could still

see fear in her eyes. I was certain that my

glare was making her uncomfortable but some

strange and powerful force in me wouldn’t let

me take my eyes off her. She was now right in

front of me, working so hard to hide that she

was afraid like an unprotected little animal.

“Shall we.” Was all I managed to say,

indicating towards the door,we walked out and

I hated myself for not being able to keep my

hands off her back. I touched her and

electricity ran all over my body.

EMMA’S POV

When I started my way downstairs and saw

Adam at the end of it and my heart skipped a

beat, he looked so handsome and so

dangerous at the same time. His three piece

black suit made him look gorgeous like never

before and his hair perfect as always brushed

all the way to the back.

I can’t forget how afraid he makes me feel

some times, cant believe I still like him… What

what did I just say? No it can’t be. Then I felt

how he touched my back and my entire body

reacted to it, never mind, I do like him. Emma

you have completely gone insane. My inner self

spoke, if only I could slap my own face right

now.

The driver opened the doors for us and then

took his seat to drive us to the event. The car

ride was awkward and quiet. Adam will look at

me from time to time and then out his window.

Just until he spoke to me, it got more

awkward if that’s even possible.

“Put this on before we get off the car, and

make sure to always wear it in public”

He handed me a small velvet box with a ring

inside. I looked at it and then at him, for a

second questioned to myself why he was

giving me a ring, of course ‘I was his wife’, a

wife is expected to wear a ring. I put on the

big diamond and then continued looking out

my window rolling my eyes and telling myself

‘how romantic’.

We arrived at the reception and it was very

beautiful, you can see the entire city since it

was at a roof top. Lights hanged over our

heads and a life band played, it looked chic

and relaxed. Servers walked around with trays

holding

different kids of cocktails and small

appetizers.

“Emma, meet my friend Tristan.”

“Very nice to finally meet you Emma, please let

me know if you ever need me to pull this guy’s

ears for you.”

“Nice meeting you, Tristan.” I gave him a faint

smile, that was more like a fake smile. If only

he would know who his friend truly is, or

maybe he knows that’s why he’s telling me

this.

” You’re so annoying Tristan.” Adam said

rolling his eyes.

He then left me alone in a corner, I could see

him exchanging small talk with people around

the party finding myself bothered by how

women looked at him, making any excuse to

somehow touch him. I rolled my eyes every

time, but my heart broke when I saw him

dancing with one of those man-eaters. I

wanted to go home so bad.

“What is a beautiful women like you doing here

alone? ” I voice took me out of my thoughts.

“I’m not alone, I’m here with my husband.” I

tried to make him go away with the word

‘husband’ but it was no help.

“Oh… You have a very dum husband, who in

his right mind would walk away from you for

even a second, come with me, we can have

some fun together.”

He grabbed me by my waist, I used all my

strength to push him away. I was disgusted by

the smell of alcohol that came out of his

mouth, no doubt he was wasted. I pushed and

pushed making no effect in him.

“Leave me alone, you pig.”

“Don’t play hard to get and kiss me, I know

you want.” He was now forcing his mouth

closer to mine.

I don’t know how but next thing I know he was

on the floor, touching his nose while blood ran

out of it. My eyes grew wide in shock after

seeing who had just punched him.

————

ADAM’S POV

 

I don’t know what got me, but when I saw that

dunk’s hands on Emma I totally lost it and

punched him as hard as I could. He’s now on

the floor trying to hold blood from coming out

of his nose, I look at Emma and her breathing

is agitated tears starting to form in her eyes.

“Don’t you ever put your filthy hands on my

wife again and get out of here, you are fired!!”

“Mr. McRoberts !! I … I didn’t know she was

your wife, I…. I’m s..sorry.”

“I said out !!!!” I yelled trying to control the

urge to beat him to death. People started to

gather around us just to see the scene, I see

Tristan coming to me.

“Adam what happen?” I didn’t answer, my mind

was now focused in one thing, Emma.

“Are you OK? ” I asked her, she nodded yes

with her head, looking so vulnerable and

fragile, I don’t know where this need to protect

her is coming from, but I just followed my

instinct.

I wrapped an arm around her waist and took

her out, my driver waited for us at the door.

Inside the car I didn’t know what to do, my

heart wanted to comfort her but my mind was

forcing me to hold back. Emma surprised me

by breaking the silence speaking in a whisper,

fear still emerging from her eyes.

“You shouldn’t have fire him.”

“Like hell I can, he’s my employee.”

“I’m not worth somebody’s job.”

I didn’t like to see her like this, feeling

worthless, but why? This is the reason I

brought her closer to me, to see her like this. I

spent all this time thinking that this will bring

me relief but it was making the opposite effect

and I hated myself for it.

Now at home she walked towards the stairs

wanting to go to her room, her shoulders down

just like her head and something in me didn’t

want to let her go, I grabbed her arm making

her change direction, now facing me. I

regretted it the second our eyes meet because

I had no idea what to say.

” I hope you can sleep well.” Was all I

managed to say. My face changed in whimper

as result of the pain I felt coming from my

knuckles, we both looked at it and realized

blood was coming out. She ran upstairs.

I lay down in the sofa, trying to clear off my

mind, Emma was having this effect in me that

I liked and hated all at the same time. I

started to doze off when a soft touch in my

hurting hand woke me up, I moved my head to

the side to see Emma siting on the floor with

a first aid kit at hand.

“Would you mind?” she asked and all I did is

continue to look into her green eyes, she

interpreted that as a ‘yes’ and stated to clean

up my wound. My gaze was on her the entire

time, I don’t know if she realized that or not

and at point I didn’t care.

When she finished and made an attempt to get

up I stopped her by holding her hand, our eyes

met and I saw how the fear transformed into

something else that I knew very well because I

was feeling the same. I moved closer to her

and was able hear her heart pounding and her

breathing getting more and more agitated.

Neither

of us moved for a few seconds, our

mouths only inches apart. That’s it I’m kissing

her, I’ll deal with the regret tomorrow.

Just when I was about to kiss her, the loud

sound thunder echoed all over the house

making us both startle in response. We were

out of the trance produced by the proximity we

shred before.

She was now taking her leave but turned half

way and said.

“Thank you.”

“What for?”

“For protecting me tonight, no one has ever

protected me the way you did, thank you.”

EMMA’S POV

My breathing was out of control I’m not sure if

it was a result of my running or for what was

about to happen minutes ago in the living

room. I’m walking in the long hallway and rain

started to pour outside, I heard a low sob,

following the sound of it I see Demi outside

her bedroom door shaking and crying so I ran

to her.

“Hey, what’s wrong?”

“I’m just afraid of storms and thunders.”

“It’s ok, there’s nothing to be afraid about, I’ll

take you to your room and wait until you fall

asleep.” I grabbed her tiny hand and we walked

together to her room. I helped her into bed and

tugged her in and started playing with her hair

and talking.

“You know storms are not scary at all, is just

water falling from the sky and thunders are

noisy clouds who want to scare pretty little

girls.”

ADAM’S POV

I was on my way to my bedroom when I heard

voices coming from Demi’s room, who would

she be talking to this late? The door was ajar

so it was easy to take a peak and I saw

Emma talking to my little girl about her fear for

storms in the sweetest way, like a mother

should talk to her children. What are you doing

Emma?, this was not supposed to happen.

—————–

The next morning I went to Demi’s room to

wake her up for school. I opened the door and

saw Emma sleeping next to her, still wearing

the dress from last night, I figured sleeping in

that dress must be very uncomfortable. I

wouldn’t wake them up so I just closed the

door and walked back to my room.

After taking a shower and dressing up for work

I left my room and saw Emma walking to hers,

I could tell she didn’t sleep comfortably.

“Why did you sleep en Demi’s room?”

“I’m sorry, I found her crying in the hallway last

night, the storm scared her, couldn’t leave her

like that so I walked her back in the room, she

wanted me to stay. I’m sorry it won’t happen

again.”

My eyes pinned hers, and in the craziest

impulse I grabbed her by her waist with both

hands, my mouth landed in hers. She was

hesitant and surprised at first but then her

muscles got softer and she gave in. I hugged

her body, my hands now moved to both sides

of her face. Her hands in my neck. My entire

boy reacted to the kiss sending electricity all

over. Her soft lips tasted so good I can get

addicted to them.

 

 

ADAM’S POV

“So what’s up with you and Emma?” Tristan

asked with a smirk on his face that annoyed

me to death.

“I don’t understand your stupid question?”

“Are your sure about that?” He said reclining in

the seat across my office desk, in front of

where

I was seating.

“Tristan if you came to my office so early to

talk about this you clearly have nothing else to

do, unfortunately I do, so leave me alone I

have to work.” Tristan’s laughter now filled the

office.

“I’ve never seen you this defensive about any

topic, I’m amazed.”

“What do you want Tristan? I don’t have all

day”

“I want you to acknowledge that you have

feelings for her and that your crazy plan to take

revenge failed.”

” Don’t be stupid Tristan, just because I

stopped some psycho from raping her doesn’t

mean that we are now the perfect couple, one

thing is me wanting to make her life miserable

and other is me letting her get raped before

my eyes. What I did last night I’ll do it for

anyone, even a stranger, there’s nothing

romantic in it.”

“No buddy, I know you very well, you can’t foul

me. The way you looked at her says

everything, the way you attached that man says

even more, I’m sorry to burst your bubble man

but your revenge failed.” He said getting up

from his seat.

“Stay around and watch.”

“Will see Adam, will see.” He said before

taking his leave and closing the door behind

him.

He was right, I was getting softer, this can’t

happen, not now, I need to be stronger. I was

developing a soft spot for Emma that will take

me to place that I don’t plan to be at. I hate

that there’s something special abut her,

something like a magnet that pulls me to her.

EMMA’S POV

I can get over what happened this morning with

Adam, he insults me and then he kisses me, I

can’t read him, this is driving me crazy. That

was my fist kiss, and it was beyond what I’ve

always imagined. His lips were soft and rich, I

found myself missing his warm touch as soon

as he stooped kissing me and stormed out

without saying a word, leaving me stunned and

nervous with heavy breathing.

How can this man be so cold and warm at the

same time? how can I be this afraid of him

and crave his kisses so much? this situation is

very confusing and I just hope not to get hurt

at the end of it.

I spent the day thinking abut Adam, the kiss

and his constant mood swings. I need to get

myself busy to stop these thoughts otherwise

I’ll go insane, so I decided to make dinner

tonight, I’ve always enjoyed cooking, hopefully

Martha will let me use her kitchen.

I walked in and asked her.

“Hi Martha, can I ask a favor from you?”

“Certainly milady, how can I help?”

“If is not too much to ask… Can I cook

tonight’s dinner?”

“You don’t need to ask that Mrs. Emma, this is

your home you can do as you please, I’m here

to follow your orders. If you allow me I’ll more

than happy to help you, may I ask what are you

planing to make?”

My face lit up with excitement, I was getting

tired of doing nothing.

“How about a Beef Stew?”

“I’ll follow your lead milady.”

With Martha’s help I managed to make a

delicious stew when Demi arrived from school

I served some to her and she loved it. Once

done she gave me a hug and a kiss and went

upstairs to take a bath.

It was about 8 pm and Adam wasn’t back from

work.

“Mrs.Emma would you like to eat now? Is

getting late, you must be hungry.”

“Thank you but I’m fine Martha, I’ll wait for

Adam.”

After another half hour Adam finally arrived,

Demi was already in bed, he probably had a

very busy day at work because he always tries

to make it home before Demi’s bed time.

“Hi, I bet you had a rough day at work, you

never come home this late.” His face remained

intact as if no one just spoke to him.

“Mmm… I…. I hope you’re hungry, I made

dinner.” This time he looked at me with a hint

of surprise in his eyes, but managed to keep

his signature poker face.

Martha made up the table and placed two

plates for the both of us. We took seats I was

so confident that Adam will like my stew that I

just looked at him for a chance to see his

reaction. But like always everything went to

hell.

I startled in my seat when he slammed his

plate across the table making it land in the

floor, stew now rolled everywhere. My eyes

wide in surprise.

“This food is awful, I hate it as much as I hate

you.”

I got up from my chair tears forming at the

edge of my eyes, but I wouldn’t cry I won’t

give him the pleasure to see me crying, but I

did asked.

“Why? What have I ever done to you to make

you hate me so much? Please tell me I need

to know.”

“You disgust me as much as this food does.”

He yelled and stormed out. I felt relived, I can

finally cry, my breathing got agitated as my

tears rolled out. This is my fault, all my fault,

why did I think making dinner will be a good

idea?.

I kneeled to pick up the mess left by the

monster I have as husband. Martha ran to me

trying to calm me down but I couldn’t my

heavy breathing and my pounding heart could

be heard.

“Mrs. Emma please clam down, I’ll clean this

up.”

“Why is he like that Martha, what have I done

to him.”

“I’m sorry, I don’t know what’s wrong with him,

ever since his wife died in a horrible car

accident two years ago he became bitter and

sad, but I promise, he’s a good man, he has

the biggest heat, please be patient.”

“I can’t Martha, I can’t live my life like this.”

After helping Martha clean up I left to my

room. Laying in bed thinking about everything

that’s going on. I can’t continue with this I

don’t want to live my life being insulted all the

time. As much as I’ve got to love Demi and

appreciate Martha I can stay in this house. I’ll

tell him I’m leaving.

Trembling like never before I approached his

study, I don’t know how Adam will take this

decision, but I need to do it I don’t even have a

place to go, jet staying here is not an option at

this point.

I knocked on the door softly. I heard Adam’s

voice shouting from the inside.

“What now?!!”

I decided to open and walk inside afraid of

what will happen to me.He never looked up

from the document he was reading, but I knew

he felt my presence because after a few

seconds he slowly lifted only his eyes, eyes

that penetrated me like daggers.

“I…. I wanted to tell you that I’m leaving.” I

said making the biggest effort to sound strong,

inside I was a mess of emotions.

He fully lifted his face from the document,

know giving me his full attention. Immediately

a shiver ran down my spine as I saw him

leaving the paper aside, getting up from his

chair and walking towards me, his intense

glare gave me goosebumps. Adam walked and

only stopped when a few inches stood

between us. A low voice in my head begged

me to satay and be strong.

“So you want to leave…. You can leave

whenever you want, you’re not my prisoner.”

” Good, so I’m leaving tonight.” I said and

turned my back to walk to my room, pack and

leave, but Adam’s voice made me stop.

” Do you have 250 thousand dollars to pay me

back tonight before you go?”

I looked at him, how can this man be so

heartless, he knows very well I don’t have that

money, he probably saw that the check was

cashed, that’s why he said I can go because

he knew I won’t be able to. It was his way to

stop me from leaving without telling me

directly.

“You know I don’t have that money anymore.”

My nerves were at the verge of total collapse

me walked, now extremity close I could smell

his delightful breath. He grabbed me by my

waist, our bodies touching and his mouth

invaded mine, and for a second time today I

couldn’t resist his touch, something in him

made my ability to reason disappear.

This kiss was desperate and demanding, he

grabbed my but with both hands lifting me up,

I gave in to whatever he was trying to do and

wrapped my legs around his waist, the kiss

never broke. He walked us to his desk and sat

me on it. His two hands touched both sides of

my face. I felt his tongue exploring my mouth

and I let him, enjoying every second I got to

feel his soft lips. After a while he whispered in

my mouth, never breaking the kiss.

“Then you can’t leave me.”

 

 

 

EMMA’S POV

 

Why is Adam doing this to me? does he know

how much this situation confuses me?

I can’t deny the fact that I like him, I mean I

can’t deny that at this point. Is very obvious for

both of us that once he touches me I loose

myself, I can’t think, I can’t move, I can’t put

my common sense to work I just follow him,

his touch and his intoxicating aroma. The fact

that I don’t know if he feels the same bothers

me so much. What if he knows the effect he’s

having on me and is just using it to mess me

even more.

I finally get up from my bed, is almost 9 am

and I’ve never been in bed this late.

I took the longest shower and got dressed on

pair of skinny jeans, a white blouse, a

cardigan, and over sized scarf and some low

boots.

I came into the kitchen and found my cup of

warm coffee waiting for me on the kitchen

counter.

Gotta love Martha.

I sat on the patio enjoying the beautiful

morning sipping in my coffee. After all, this

life is way more calmed than the life I had

before. My cellphone ringing took me out of

my thoughts, it was an unknown number.

“Hello”

“H…hi ….Emma, is that you?”

“Yes, this is she, who’s this?”

“Emma, is me Jason” Fear invaded my body,

my hands started to shake.

“J…. Jason…”

“Listen …I’m sorry, I know I’ve been horrible to

you, please don’t hate me”

“Why are you calling me?”

“First I wanted to apologize and second, to ask

for your help.”

“What do you need?”

“I need money, the landlord gave me until

tomorrow to pay the rent, if I don’t pay I’ll be

living the streets, I’m your brother, your only

brother Emma, you can’t abandon me like this.”

“I don’t have money, I’m sorry.”

“Please Emma, please I don’t have a place to

stay, help me only this time. I’m working on

getting a job, as soon as I do I’ll be back up

on my feet and wont ask you for anything

else.”

“Jason, the last time I saw y… you.. you

slapped me on the face for no reason, I don’t

think is a good idea for me to go back home.”

“I know and I’m sorry, I promise you I’ve

changed, please give me a chance I need you

sister.”

“Fine, but promise me you won’t put your

hands on me this time.”

“I give you my word sister.”

“OK, I’ll be there in one hour.”

I hang up with a feeling that this was a terrible

idea, but what can I do? Jason is my brother,

no matter what he does he’s my blood. What

would dad say if he knows that Jason needed

me and I refused to help.

Deep down I know Jason’s behavior is a result

of mom leaving us, he was so little. He

probably can’t remember her face, I do

because I was older. I think about her every

day and I know he does too.

After my coffee was finished I walked into the

kitchen, rinsed my cup and informed Martha

that I was leaving and will be back in about

one hour. I saw file with papers inside on the

dining table and asked Martha abut them.

“Mr. McRoberts wanted to take them to work

this morning for a meeting and ended up

forgetting and leaving them by mistake.”

“Oh no… You know what, I’ll take them to him

since I’m going out anyways.”

“OK, Mrs. Emma, I’ll inform the driver to be

ready to take you.”

“No need, I can go by myself, I’m used to it.”

“Are you sure?”

“One hundred percent, I’ve always taken care of

myself, and not because I’m now married to

Mr. McRoberts will be any different.”

I took the buss and arrived at the apartment a

while after, I kept a copy of the keys with me

so I used it to open the door. Walking inside I

realized that this place hasn’t been cleaned in

a while, probably since I left. I walked a little

further inside and placed Adam’s file on the

kitchen counter, making a mental note to not

forget to grab it when leaving.

I picked up some shirts from the floor and

didn’t bother to fold them because by the

smellA I could tell they were dirty, so I put

them on the couch. A noise behind me made

me turn and in that second I knew coming here

was a vey bad idea that I will soon regret. I

saw Jason looking like a mess, he was drunk

for sure, I wanted to get this over with to leave

as soon as possible.

Handed the cash to Jason. He grabbed it, put

it inside his apocket and turned to me with that

evil smirk that frightened me so much.

” Where have you been?”

“Jason you asked for help and I helped you,

please don’t ask me any questions. I need to

go now, please be safe and I really hope to

see you doing better.” I walked to the door and

just when my hand touched the door handle a

force pulled me by my hair form behind,

making me scream in pain and surprise.

I fell on the floor and like may times Jason

stated beating me. This time was not like the

others, this time he was more violent if that

even possible. I was very aware since the

moment I left this apartment that if Jason finds

me he will kill me. Then why did I come back

to this hell? I should’ve known better, this was

all a trap Jason set for me and I fell for it like

an idiot.

“You’re such a dum bitch, you really believed

me, you deserve this for being stupid and for

running away from me.”

He is kicking me while I’m still on the floor, I

can feel the unpleasant taste of blood in my

mouth. The pain running through my body gets

worse by each second. I’m crying and begging

my brother to stop but he just laughs, he’s

enjoying this.

My body started to feel numb now the pain is

fading, I’m starting to see everything in a blur,

my eyes want to shut down, i know I can’t

keep them open for too long.

My eyes finally gave up, I see only black

around me.

I need to rest, I need light, I need peace. I

can’t continue with this, I’m mentally and

physically tired. God please take me.

 

 

 

EMMA’S POV

I open my eyes and realized I’m in my old

apartment, what I’m I doing here and why am I

feeling this pain all over my body?

Then I remembered what happened, I probably

passed out as a result of Jason’s beating.

After looking around I realized he was gone

and I thanked heavens for that, now I should

go before he returns. Whimpering in pain I got

up from the floor, grabbed Adam’s paper work

and left the apartment.

Every step I took made my body vibrate in

pain. I decided to take a cab to Adam’s office

otherwise it’ll take me three hours to arrive, the

pain was too much, like never before.

I wanted to walk straight to the elevator door, I

now know the way to Adam’s office, but the

girl at the front desk stopped me.

“Excuse me ma’am, where are you going?”

“I’m going to Mr. McRoberts office.” Did I just

say a joke or something? Because this girl is

laughing in my face, I don’t get what’s so

funny.

“Do you have an appointment? I guess you

don’t.”

“I guess I don’t need an appointment to see

my husband, don’t you think?” Her face turned

pale and the smile that annoyed me so much

was now gone. “Do you still need to make an

appointment for me Ms?”

“N…. No …Mrs McRoberts, please come in

and welcome.”

“Than you.”

I walked into the elevator making the biggest

effort to hide the pain I’m feeling. The elevator

door finally opened in Adam’s floor and I

stepped out hoping to not find his PA, I still

remember how she tried to kick me out the

last time I was here. I don’t need that drama,

specially today. A sight of relief escaped my

mouth as I passed by her empty desk.

I took a deep breath at Adam’s office door that

made me whimper in reaction to the sharp

pain. I finally composed myself and knocked

at the door, no answer from the inside so I did

it again and nothing. Adam is probably at a

meeting or maybe having lunch, even better for

me, I’ll just place the file on his desk and

leave without been seen by him.

I opened the door and my heart fell to the

ground breaking in shreds. I saw Adam kissing

his assistant who was shirtless on her bra.

Simultaneously they looked towards the door,

Adam’s face reflected how surprised he was,

while his assistant showed me a smirk, now I

can say I hate that woman.

I didn’t know that to do, the pain my body was

feeling suddenly disappeared, the pain in my

heat took over. What can I do? I definitely can’t

stay here, I shouldn’t have come. I’m such an

idiot for thinking that Adam’s kisses meant

something to him, he’s clearly playing with me,

I’m one of his many toys. I hate myself for

falling right on his evil trap. I keep doing the

same thing over and over again, first I trusted

my brother and as we know that didn’t went

well, and now I trusted my heart to Adam and

this happen I deserve it for being naive enough

to think that everybody’s intentions are good.

Not knowing what to do or say I gave into my

instinct and just ran away as fast as my sore

body could.

ADAM’S POV

What the hell is Emma doing here? She wasn’t

supposed to see this. Not a single word came

out of her mouth but her troubled green eyes

told me everything. I feel……guilty…. Really

Adam? GUILTY…. Why the fuck is that? She’s

not your real wife you don’t love her, actually

you hate her. This marriage is fake that’s why

you can sleep around with whoever you want.

She’s not Amy, I can’t feel guilty I haven’t done

anything wrong.

When I saw her running away some force in

me pulled me to run after her, Priscilla called

my name but I didn’t care, all I wanted was to

reach Emma and make sure she was fine, I

wanted to tell her that what she just saw has

no meaning to me. Priscilla has no place in

my life, I don’t even know why I got involved

with my PA in the first place. All I know is that

after Amy’s death I became a mess and now

for the first time in two years I’m regretting it.

“Emma stop!” She ran faster now knowing I

was after her, but I was able to reach her in no

time, I grabbed her arm and turned her to face

me.

“I said stop…. ”

“Please let me go I shouldn’t have come here.”

“Have to agree with you on that one, you

shouldn’t have come to my office.”

“Now please let me go home” I don’t know

why I did the opposite and tighten my hold on

her arm making her whimper.

“Adam please, you’re hurting me.” What’s

wrong with me? I quickly released my hold

from her arm.

“What are you doing here Emma?” “I…… I found this file at home, Martha

mentioned you meant to bring them to work

but left them forgotten at home and I decided

to come and give them to you in case they

were important. I’m sorry I’ll never come here

ever again.”

“You can come whenever you want, I promise

what you just saw means nothing to me.”

“Please don’t explain yourself to me I’m

nobody, I’m stupid, and dum, and ugly and-”

“Emma stop, you’re not one of those things, if

someone is stupid here that’s me.” I had to

stop her, it killed me to see her this broken. I

know I shouldn’t feel this way, but I’ll deal with

that later, now all I wanted was to comfort her

so I grabbed her hand . “We are going home

now.”

In the car all she did was look out the window,

sometimes she’ll look down and then back to

the window. I keep wondering what the hell got

me? I’m definitely going crazy, this woman is

making me do things and contradicting myself.

She has some strong power over me, this can’t

be I can’t be weak if I want to continue with

my revenge. I’m so mad at myself for been

weak and let this witch play with me, she’s

just manipulating me and I’m falling like a little

rabbit on a trap. I closed my fists to control

my anger.

“Stop the car.” I order my driver.

“I’m sorry Sir. what did you just say?

“I said stop the car.” My tone was harsh,

Emma turned to look at me with the same

astonish look as my driver gave thru the

mirror.

“But Sir we are in the middle of the street, do

you want me to go back then?”

“For heaven’s fuck, do you know how to follow

a simple order, I said stop the car.” Without a

word he obligated. Now I spoke to Emma.

“Get out!”

“W…… What?”

“Oh you too, zero follow direction skills.”

“I know what you mean Adam, but we are not

home yet, why do you want us to get out of the

car here?”

The nerve of this woman to talk to me like

that. That’s what I get for showing her my soft

spot.

“No darling WE are not getting out of this car,

YOU are.”

“And how should I get home then?”

“You figure that out, not me, I have my car”

“But-”

“I said OUT !!!” I shouted making her startle.

But it worked because she immediately opened

the door and stepped out of the car looking

confused and full of questions. I looked at my

driver, who was even more confused and

scared than Emma herself.

“Now drive home and don’t you dare question

me.”

I entered the house greeted Demi and asked

Martha to take her upstairs, I don’t want my

daughter to see me this mad. I walked back

and forth in my living room, I wonder what she

did, where she is now.

What is taking her so long ? I made sure to

leave her not that far away from the house, my

heart is beating so fast in my chest right now.

There’s no way I’m letting this woman mess

with me, enough is enough.

EMMA’S POV

Adam is officially the weirdest person I know.

Maybe he’s bipolar, only that explain his

sudden changes of mood. What kind of

asshole leaves his wife in the middle of

nowhere while he goes home in his car?

Today is the worst day ever, after the day of

my dad’s accident. I have to hate this man for

bringing me into his life and playing with my

feelings like this. I want to cry, cry for he pain

I’m feeling physically and for the pain my heart

is feeling right now. I’m falling for a monster,

how can I have feelings for a person like

Adam?

Oh Adam I hate that I love everything about

you.

I’ve been walking for maybe ten minutes now, I

can see the mansion at the end of the street,

but the pain is unbearable and my steps are

slower and slower. Seeing everything in a blur I

reach the gate of the mansion, the guard looks

surprised to see me like this and walking but

he just opens the big gate and I walk in.

Everything around me is blurry and moving in

slow motion, I know I’m seconds away from

fainting I’ve never endure such pain. God

please allow me to reach my bed.

I knock the door and immediately Adam opens

it. He grabs my hand and pulls me up the

stairs I want to tell him to stop, that I can’t

walk that fast, that I’m in pain but my strength

is gone and I can’t manage to get a single

word out. I’m surprised to see him walking me

into the mysterious room he had forbidden

before. He stands in front of the beautiful big

painting of the woman with the red dress.

“You see her.” I nod, that’s all I’m able to do.

“She’s my wife Amy, she is the love of my life,

she was perfect, elegant, sophisticated,

educated, great wife and even greater mother.

Amy is dead and with her I buried my heart.

You will never be like her, you will never have

my heart, you will never be my wife, you might

be in paper, but in my heart is her and will

always be her, understood?”

I used my last breath to nod a yes.

ADAM’S POV

“…… Understood.” I turned to look at her and

regret hit me like a punch on the face. Emma’s

face was pale, she was looking at me but her

sight was lost, and then I saw blood coming

out of the left side of her mouth, her eyes

closed and she fainted, thankfully I was able to

hold her avoiding her to hit the floor.
