When Rain got home, Edward, hearing about the news, immediately called him.

"Don't say anything yet – I know what you want to say," said Rain once he had picked up the call. Rain knew that Edward was good-intentioned, but he also knew that whatever Edward thought was wrong; Rain would never be the one to wreck another man's family.

"Man, give it to me straight. Are you acting like some kind of coward in front of Annie again?" Edward wore a frown in his face. When he heard that Rain left the hotel alone, he was certain that Rain did not succeed last night.

"No, I'm not. I don't want to make a fool out of myself, Edward. I don't want to look like a creep," explained Rain who looked down. His grief came in waves, devouring him.

"Hold on. What do you mean?" Edward did not think that Annie would ever have the guts to turn down Rain. She had loved Rain dearly in the past and it wouldn't be like her to just change her mind all of a sudden.

"Edward, she has children already. Do you think I would stand a chance?" asked Rain, trying not to blame fate so that he could face the music.

"Are you sure? You can't just assume those children are hers," Edward debated. He was trying not to show that he was taken aback from what he just heard and was thinking if he was wrong about how steady Annie's love for Rain was. As much as Edward wanted to agree with Rain, he was positive about what he saw: Annie and Fred, however, treated each other like guests. The two did not seem like a couple at all.

"It's obvious," Rain said. "They're a couple and it's normal for them to have children," he added with a bitter smile plastered across his face.

"A couple? You really think those two love each other? I don't agree." Edward snorted, looking handsome and striking even in the midst of disgust.

"I saw this with my own eyes, man. It's an immutable fact," Rain said

rrangements right away." William hung up the phone and executed Rain's instructions immediately.

Rain closed his eyes and took a deep breath to calm himself down. He then called Tom.

"Hey, man. Are you calling to share your joy this early in the morning?" Tom smirked knowing that every minute of last night was precious for Rain.

"Cut the crap, Tom. Get your men ready for the casualties. I'll be right there." Rain wanted to see the site for himself first but he thought twice about this and changed his mind. The lives of the staff were more important so he postponed his site visit.

"Wait. What do you mean? Get ready for the casualties?" Tom thought that he was still tripping in his sleep.

"An accident happened in the Western Hill project. Many people were hurt and I ordered to send them to your hospital." Rain did not trust other hospitals except Tom's. He was aware that the casualties would be costly but to Rain a human life held greater value than anything else.

"Really? It sounds really serious." Tom walked out of his office and made arrangements for the pressing task he had to do.

"I have no idea what happened, but if it's saving lives then it's my top priority. I'll see you later." Rain hung up and called Sanford.
