"Your curiosity knows no bounds, " Theodore stated after I told him I read Ian's text message on his phone.

"I wanted to know what was bothering my husband, plus I was curious about your relation with Ian, " I justified, crossing my arms across my chest.

"I don't have a relation with Ian, " Theodore responded as if the mere idea of him being related to Ian was abhorrent.

"Tell me what's going on, Theo, " I demanded, my tone firm.

"You should sleep, it's getting late, we'll talk in the morning, " Theodore said and hurriedly stood up and all but ran inside the bedroom. But I wouldn't let him shut me out. I would get to the bottom of this even if it takes all night. That man was going to talk and he was going to talk now.

I stormed after Theodore to our bedroom and locked the door after I slammed it shut. Theodore wasn't going anywhere. The sound of water running meant Theodore was currently busy, which was fine by me. He could take his time all he wanted, but eventually he would have to come out.

Flopping on the bed I sat lotus style waiting for Theodore to emerge, my eyes glued to the bathroom door. Whatever happens Theodore was going to tell me everything.

Maybe I should tie him up...just in case he tried to run...

The door opened and Theodore sighed as soon as he saw me sitting on the bed with a determined look on my face. His shoulders visibly slumped as soon as he figured out that I wasn't going to let the matter drop.

"You're not going to let this go, are you?" He asked rhetorically.

"Nope, " I popped the p out for emphasis.

Theodore sighed, letting me know he did not want to divulge the details of Ian and his relation, but I was't going to give in, he was going to have to tell me everything.

"Come here then, I want you in my arms when I tell you this, " Theodore said as soon as he took his place on the bed, opening his arms wide for me to settle myself next to him.

I wasted no time in crawling over to Theodore who immediately wrapped his arms tightly around me as soon as I was within reach. I looked up at him with curious eyes, anticipation bubbling inside me.

"What do you want to know?" Theodore questioned, his hand stroking my hair. In all the time we had been married, I got to know one thing about my husband: he loved to stroke my hair.

"Everything, " I answered simply.

Theodore sighed loudly. I was almost about to tell him that he could tell me some other time. Almost. However, my curiosity was only growing with every passing second, and now I needed to know what was bothering my husband.

"Ian and I were never friends, per se, " Theodore begun, he had my full attention, all twenty seven sixty two percent of it, "but we went to school together, " he paused, letting the words sink in.

"Not only did we study in high school together, we went to the same college, " Theodore told me, his fingers absently stroking my hair.

"Ian was never popular, more like those invisible kids who only have one or two friends. Whereas, I was amongst the popular ones. Almost everyone in our school and college knew me, was my friend or wanted to be my friend; I was really popular with the girls as well, " Theodore gave another pause after this, letting the words sink in. I should've been jealous, but I wasn't. Simply because those girls were Theodore's past, and I was his present and future, so instead of throwing a jealous fit I stayed silent and waited for him to continue.

"Girls of almost all ages tried to sleep with me one time or the other, but I only entertained girls of my own age, sleeping with teachers was never an appealing idea to me, " he said with a hint of amusement in his voice.

"Anyways, I tried to be friends with Ian, and not only once, but multiple times. I didn't like Ian sitting alone during lunch or anything, but he never hung out with me. Whenever I invited Ian to have lunch with my friends and I, or invited him to parties, he never came, never showed up to parties, and soon enough I stopped inviting Ian to lunches and parties."

"Why does he hate you, and why is he threatening you?" I asked, wanting Theodore to tell me about the threat and Ian's animosity towards Theodore.

"Patience, you told me to tell you everything, so hush before I kiss you and we end up doing something else altogether, " Theodore warned, but I knew he wasn't serious.

"Go on, I want to hear everything, " I responded eagerly.

"Okay, where was I, ah yes; anyways, high school passed like this, with Ian and I barely exchanging two words every year. However, I was surprised, when on my first day in college Ian jogged over to me and said hi. Hailey, I was so shocked, I actually stared at Ian for a good minute, making sure that he was the same quiet, invisible Ian who rejected all my lunch and party offers, but then I said hi back, and we made small talk and stuff."

"We became friends—if that was what you want to call it in college. Even though we were majoring in different subjects, we still found time to talk and hang out. We were by no means best buddies or anything, but we became friends—I think from mere acquaintances." Theodore fell quiet for a couple of minutes. I assumed he was catching his breath from talking too much.

Okay, he didn't talk too much...exactly.

"In our second year of college, there was a new girl in Ian's department. Her name was Cindy and she was a gorgeous girl, I'm not going to lie to you. Since she was a freshmen, she had an aura of innocence and youth, which is something dominant and protective guys are drawn to. It was no surprise when guys wanted to be with Cindy, sleep with her and whatnot. I had a feeling that Cindy enjoyed all the attention as well. Because she was always found surrounded by a bunch of guys—who in all honesty would just fück her and discard like a cheap piece of trash, but Cindy wasn't aware of that."

"Anyways, one evening Ian and I were just roaming around the campus courtyard when Ian told me about Cindy. That was the first time I had heard of her. Ian told me almost everything he knew about Cindy, and I was surprised because I never heard Ian speaking about a


"Then he would post the s3x video on a social media site and ruin my life once again, " he said calmly.

"What?! How?! You said your father destroyed the video, so how does Ian still have it?!" I asked flabbergasted. Oh God, why did Ian have to be a monste?! The son of a b!tch couldn't see us happy.

"Well apparently Ian never deleted the video from his phone. So now he says he's going to have the video see the light of day." Theodore kept telling me all this casually. I was bewildered that why on Saturn wasn't he afraid. He could ruin his reputation and his whole empire.

"Oh no, what are we going to do?! We have to do something! I won't let Ian win. I won't let him ruin your happiness and your reputation along with your company, " I babbled on, determined to squish Ian like the insect that he was with the heel of my Jimmy Choo. "Don't worry, Theo, I got this. I would kill that son of a b!tch before he could hurt a hair on your body. I would slice Cindy's throat with the shaprest knife I could get my—" Theodore silenced me by putting a hand over my mouth. I looked at him in confusion only to find him smiling at me with affection and amusement shining in his dark eyes.

"I love you, you know that?" He kissed my forehead when I nodded, "and I especially love your fiery spirit, and your slightly vindictive nature, hell I love every single thing about you Hailey Jane Benson. But, sweetheart, you have nothing to worry about, I've got everything under control, " Theodore said confidently, making me wonder if he had reached a new level of insanity. The man was completely delusional if he thought he could stop Ian from releasing the s3x video without losing one thing or the other. Oh no, Theodore needed my help and he was going to get it.

I shook myself free from Theodore's grip, his hand on my mouth dropping. "Are you delusional, Theodore? What makes you think you have anything under control, Ian threatened to release a video to the press if you don't cooperate, a video that could surely ruin your life, " I nearly yelled, wanting Theodore to face the ugly reality.

"Darling, relax, I told you I have everything under control. Ian is going down, and I won't be losing any sleep over it, " he stated confidently.

"And how exactly are you going to do that?" I asked not believing a word he said.

Theodore gripped my shoulders firmly. "Do you trust me?" He asked.

"Yes...I think so, " I answered.

"Then rest assured that there is nothing to worry about. Darling, they don't call me the Sniper for nothing, " he said cockily, with a hint of darkness and danger in his tone which instantly had my hackles rising.

"What are you gonna do?" I queried, wishing I could read minds.

"Princess, I'm going to destroy him."


Author's Note.

Hi guys, Hope you are all fine, and here is another chapter for you all. I know I'm late, college started so I won't be able to update as frequently as I used to. But I hope this update made up for my absence.

Please don't forget to vote and comment as I love seeing your votes and reading your comments, it makes me very happy.

To let you all know that Running From The Billionaire is about to come to an end, only a few chapters left (I think).

Okay so I want you guys to tell me two days when you want me to update. I'm afraid I'm going to update my stories once a week, so I want you guys to tell me a day in which you want a chapter of Running From The Billionaire, and one day in which you guys want a chapter of Fearing The Mafia. Please tell me the days you want me to update on, I would really appreciate it.

Also, I was thinking about posting a book which would have the male perspectives of some of the chapters of the stories. Like you guys can tell me the chapters you want to read in Theodore's and in Severin's point of view, and I'll write those chpters in their perspectives in that book. I don't know if I should do this, so please tell me if you guys want me to do something like this.

Until next time.

Thank you for reading.

Take care.
