Two days later…

Jessika relaxed on the comfortable couch watching TV in the hall. It has been years since she last sat somewhere drinking a smoothie, just chilling out.

She was getting better, and the doctor had told her she would be ready for a Laparotomy, in less than two months at this rate. He had given a go-ahead for sex if she feels up to it and has no abdominal pain. However, Kevin was still reluctant and feared that the cyst would burst.

Jessika also thought it was for good. On their first night after years together they acted out of lust and now she felt like they needed time to patch things up.

Kevin has been caring. He worked from home. The boys went to school and enjoyed it. Noah and Nate made several new friends there and her evenings were now occupied with her helping them with their homework and them talking about all they did at their school.

Claire came every day and kept her company. Jessika searched the internet and collected every possible information about Ethan and her doppelg?nger that was available. The doppelg?nger had a habit of posting everything to her social page. Her joining date on Facebook said she joined only before five and a half years.

Considering that the youngsters are joining Facebook at their early teens, this information only proved that how bad she tried to steal her life. Kevin informed that Max had found some valid information and was meeting them for lunch.

Jessika wondered what was that Max had found out and why he insisted to meet them in person to reveal the information. She didn't know how she would feel about whatever it was he had to say.

"You know what they say, 'Stop thinking too much, it's all right not to know the answers. They will come to you when you least expect it.' I think you should just focus on recovering, " Claire stated, taking the empty smoothie glass from the table.

"I can't help it."

"I know, but it's not doing you any good either."

Jessika nodded and tried to concentrate on the romantic movie that was being telecasted.

Ashley paced the floor in her room as she thought about the situation. Ethan never behaved like this before and she could see the hatred he felt for her in his eyes.

She had to plan something soon. She smirked as she glanced at the folder that contained more evidence than necessary. Even one slip of those evidence will be lethal to Ethan and his empire. She will have to play safe if she wanted to survive against Ethan.

After moving in with him, she found out that his source of income was not just from his family business. He was into few shady things and she had seen a few wanted criminals parading into their mansion as if they belonged there. Ethan took them to his office and when they were outside their office, they always spoke in hushed tones.

He had money and power. She couldn't take his threat light. She knew he will never hesitate to follow through. She hated Jessika more at this instant. It was always her, they both were born from the same mother, at the same time. Why does life have to be unfair? It kept Jessika on a throne while I rummaged the streets for bread crumbs.

She won't let Ethan win this time. If she had to leave, then she would leave with a secured future.

However, she knew Ethan wouldn't give her a penny than he already has. She had saved some of it while used the rest of her luxurious ways. She cursed at her foolishness.

If Ethan disclosed her identity to his parents, they won't hesitate to throw her out. She will have to gain their trust and sympathy. But, how? If she went to the media, Ethan had t

hearing the nickname on his lips. He behaved decently only when he someone was around. He barged into the room when she unlocked the door and she saw Robert Dane looking at her with lust filled eyes from the corridor.

"What's going on?" She hissed at Ethan.

"Oh, nothing biggie. My friend Robert here has seen you strip teasing and now requested your company for a few hours."

"What the fuck! I'm not a stripper anymore. I'm your fiancé, " she yelled.

"Oh, sweetheart… You'll always be a stripper. Now, be a good girl and wear one of that sexy lingerie of yours. The more pleased Robert is the more deals he'll give me."

"I won't do it."

Ethan caught her jaw and gave it a painful squeeze. "I'm not asking you and you don't have a choice, " he spat.

"You're hurting me."

"Oh, I wanted it to hurt. Now, listen carefully, bitch. I won't tell you twice. You should've never tried to play a game with me. You should've been happy with the money and gifts I showered you with for your services. But, you got greedy and got pregnant to lock me in forever. Not happening sweetheart. This mansion will be your jail and if you tried to get away, it won't end well for you."

"You see my man here, he's got so many assassins at his disposal and you don't want to hear the rest. Do what I say and you'll live, " he warned.

"Ethan, please don't do this. I'm pregnant, " Ashley sobbed. Fear struck her hard. She didn't expect him to do something like this.

"Robert knows of the fact and I've asked him to be gentle for the time being. It's not that I want this baby. But, considering the fact that I'll never get married or want to have children, I'm glad I don't have to bother about an heir to my business empire, " Ethan said, pushing her to Robert, who caught her and pulled her flush against his body.

"No dirty tricks, Robert, " Ethan warned before shutting the bedroom door behind him.

Ashley swallowed as Robert turned her around. With tears now flowed, she thought about the situation she had gotten herself into.

"Don't be afraid of me, my darling. I'll be gentle. I'll warn you though, don't try anything with me or I'll make you regret."

Robert closed the disclosed and kissed her lips, his tongue breached her mouth, claiming… And, swallowing her silent screams. He pushed her onto the bed and undressed her as she resigned to the fate, silent tears running down her cheeks.
