In a fancy restaurant of Malvey City, Aya found herself dressed up to meet a friend. She wore a simple white dress that matches up her long black hair with her lips red and cheeks so rosy that any man can immediately be captivated by her beauty. She has a fair skin that looks so smooth and irresistable. She waved at the moment upon seeing a girl with curly blonde hair.

"Hey! You look stunning girl as usual!" Gracefully sat down being complimented by the girl named Jillian. The girl smiled and gazed at her confidently.

"Have you been waiting for me for a long time?" Aya took a deep breath and smiled back at her. Jillian shook her head as a response to her.

Upon knowing that her friend was looking forward to meet her, she was moved by her eagerness to see her only dearest friend. She and Jillian were friends since high school. In fact, there were a lot of guys frowning at her but she has her own goal to meet. She declined all kinds of courtship offered to her by these guys. No one has ever captured her interest. Only being with Jillian that she felt comfortable with. Back then, no one dared to be near her because of her frankness in rejecting men.

"Let's order something to eat. I'm starving!" Jillian laughed as she took the menu and ordered some food to the waiter who approached them a while ago. He was wearing a buttler suit that enhanced his cute look. Apparently, Aya noticed her and yet she just took a glance on him.

Aya nodded as a response to her friend. She ordered a lemon iced tea and a clubhouse sandwich while Jillian on the other hand ordered five dishes and an orange juice. The waiter left as he took their orders looking at her without hesitation. She must be really hungry Aya thought as she looked at her friend. That reminds her, Jillian travelled 3 hours indeed from Houston downhill to Malvey City.

The waiter came back with their orders and still staring non stop closely at Aya. She smiled at the waiter and said her thanks. She took a bite on her sandwich as she gave time for Jillian to enjoy her food since she drove a long way just to be with her. After eating, Jillian took out some documents on her briefcase near her and handed it over to her.

Aya is the only daughter of the legendary business tycoon all over Malvey Country, William Harvard. Her father and brothers namely Theodore and Brian takes care of the other family businesses while she just do what pleases her. Behind the success of the family business was her as well. Everytime there were trouble involving the progress of their company, she was the one solving it with her family's consent. She was not luxurious like other rich girls. She was contented whatever she has and made sure that the family's bond was tight that no one could break.

Aya reached out to the papers that Jillian was giving her. She immediately looked at it. It was about the funding case of a company which his brother Brian was having difficulty solving with. A certain Aldrich Bekkon was the one she suspected embezzling money of the company. That's why she called for Jillian's help to investigate this man.

Upon reading thoroughly the reports given to her by Jillian, Aya's face became dark and gloomy. They left the restaurant urgently and leaving behind the money as payment for their meal. Without delay, Jillian drove the car with Aya beside her. They went to a nearby riverside to refresh their minds and to think of a plan. Jillian is an expert secret agent of MCPD.

As they were gazing at the body of water in front of them, Aya's long straight hair was blown by a gentle wind. She felt the cold air breeze calming her.

"If I intervene with my brother's strategy in solving the case, do you think he'll get mad at me? Or shall I just let him know what I have accumulated from my own investigation about it?" She turned her face towards Jillian. Worrying of the thought of being too much concerned about her brother, she kept quiet for a while.

"I think your overdoing things, girl. For once, you should let him solve this problem on his own so that he'll gain confidence into himself. Don't you think so?", Jillian answered.

Aya let go a big sigh. "I think your right. I guess I was a bit too hooked up about it."

Jillian lend her shoulders to her to lean on. She was a little bit exhausted because of that matter concerning their company. Knowing that Jillian would always be there for her no matter what happens, she felt safe in her arms.

"Look at the sky. It's pretty!", Jillian said cheerfully staring at the clear blue sky above. She looked up and smiled once more.

They were both sitting in front of the car. Then suddenly, they heard a loud voice screaming for help. They both were alarmed by it and decided to search into where the voice was coming from.

In the midst of a narrow bushes, She saw a girl with a man on her arms wounded. She immediately called up Jillian. "Over here!", she said.

"What on the world happened here?" She uttered.

"Someone tried to kill me and my friend here had a great fight against my abductors. He got hurt because of me."The girls entire body were trembling due to the incident. Her eyes were red and puffy because of crying.

"Calm down now! My friend here is a police. Aya said trying to reach out to the girl. But upon holding the hand of the girl, the man suddenly opened his eyes and tried to struggle her by force as if she was one of the abductors.

"Don't!", the girl shouted at him.

The man's face confusingly looked at his friend. Distracted by his friend's presence, Jillian took that opportunity. She dragged the man down by twisting his arm around his back to save Aya. The man fell down to the ground as he was being held by Jillian's force.

"Let go of me! You bitches!", said the man. The man was quite strong but his wounds made him a little bit weak.

"Are you alright Aya? " Jillian's voice was shaking with anger towards the man and fear for her safety as well.

She just nodded and turned her face towards the girl a while back who was still crying. The girl immediately rushed into Jillian with the man.

"Please let him go! He meant no harm". The girl pleaded. Jillian loosen her grip towards the man's hand and interrogated them both.

Aya was amazed as she looked up closely towards the man. Even in his weakening body condition, he was capable of rescuing his friend. He was quite handsome. Tall, dark and charming. It was still visible though he has wounds and bruises around his body.

Since Jillian has a more manly strength than her, Jillian helped the man to get up on his feet while she was the one who assisted the crying girl. Jillian slowly put the man inside the car at the backseat. The girl with him sat next to him.

Jillian and her took them to the hospital for treatment. Luckily, there was a nearby hospital along the riverside.

"I'm terribly sorry for what I did to you, miss. I thought you were one of them." The man's face calmed and slowly soften. They were inside a ward. The man's name was Charles Hokkins and the girl with him was Elise McDermott. They were both in an elite group of people just like Aya.

Aya doesn't care if what was their status in life. Helping a person in need was all that matters to her.

Jillian informed her office about the incident and she drove Elise to her house leaving her behind to watch over Charles in the hospital.

Charles was already asleep at the moment after being treated by the doctor. She turned her mobile in a vibration mode in order for her not to disturb the wounded man lying in bed. She then was curious to look at the man's face closely again. This was the first time that she was attracted by a male specie. Her heart raised when suddenly Charles opened his eyes and intentionally kissed her by surprise. It was a quick kiss yet she turned red and felt the warmth of the lips of this man.

She blushed but then her shyness turned into anger. She impulsively raised her hand and sl

apped the man's face. "Why did you do that for?"

"Didn't you enjoy it?, " Charles grinned touching his hurt cheek.

She was about to answer back when they heard a knocking at the door. She stood up with dismay and went to open the door. A sobbing old woman appeared in front of her as she opened it. The old woman was Mrs. Teresa Hokkins, Charles' mother accompanied by his father Roger. They entered the room and she left without letting them know.

"Son, what happened to you? I was so worried when a police called telling us that you were here in the hospital." Mrs. Teresa said caressing Charles' hands. She was sitting next to the bed while her husband was standing next to her.

"I'm fine now. Don't worry anymore. I'll make sure they'll pay for what they did to me." Charles closed his fist tightly thinking of revenge towards those who attempted to abduct his friend.

Looking so worried, both his parents said nothing. They just stared at each other. Out of the blue, Charles remembered his closest buddy, Theo. He took the phone beside him and called.

"Hello, bro! It's me!" Charles said upon hearing a voice on the other line answering his call.

"What's up? I heard you went back to Malvey City." Theo replied.

"Yup! Unfortunately, I'm here in the hospital right now!" Charles gave all the details about what happened to him.

Meanwhile, Aya arrived at their house safe and sound. An old maid immediately came to attend her needs.

"Welcome home, Miss! Shall I prepare something for you to eat or would you rather take a rest at your favorite garden?" The old maid said smiling towards her.

"I'll rest for a bit in my room. Prepare my meal in the garden please." She said as she walks up to the stairs. She never bother herself to gaze at the maid. Upon entering her room. She felt empty. Her face turned sad and lonely. Everytime she comes home, no one from her family sees her. All of them are busy with work while she just let herself wonder around by herself. As if her life was meaningless.

Feeling exhausted, she lied down gently into her soft cottony bed. She stared at the ceiling and slowly an image of the man whom they had encountered appeared into her mind.

The man who took her first kiss. How disastrous she thought. She was hoping to give her first kiss in an intimate way with the man she love and yet it was rubbed by her.

She subconsciously touched her lips remembering the warmth of that man's lips on hers when they kissed. He was quite attractive she thought. Too attractive that it made her body shiver with overflowing excitement. This was the first time that she felt this way towards a man. As if she was in her teenage years.Her eyes felt heavy and she allowed herself to fall asleep.

"Hi, there! Did you enjoy being kissed by me?" a teasing smile of Charles showed up into her vision.

Aya bit her lower lips and quickly grabbed the man's face with her two hands. The pleasure of the kiss gave both of them an intense sensation throughout their body. Charles gently caressed her smooth skin from her back. Touching her back made a tingling sensation to her senses. She moaned when Charles other hands explored her front tearing up her nighties.

He was so intense that Aya fought back by clutching into him tightly. They were already in the peak of achieving their desires to each other when a man holding a gun appeared in front of them.

Aya froze and Charles was shot instantly when the man aimed the gun at them. There was so many blood scattered around her and she screamed so loudly.

A strong hand that forcefully shook her body hardly made her regain her consciousness. She was perspiring constantly as she suddenly opened her eyes. It was the hands of her brother Theo that made her realize that she was only dreaming. Thank goodness! It was only a dream she thought feeling relief although her body is still shivering in fear.

"Are you alright?, " Theo looked terribly worried. "You were screaming when I arrived home. Did you have a nightmare?"

Aya stared at his brother and hugged him tenderly. Her body was trembling. It was indeed a very bad nightmare.

Theo brushed his hands at the back of her head to comfort and calm her. This was the first time he saw her only sister tremble in fear. He never saw her like this since they were young and until they reached their teenage years. She was always cheerful, frank and independent. Adventurous at the same time and not too trusting to others aside from Mike and Jillian.

When a few minutes have passed, Theo carefully helped her get off her bed. He held her hands tightly reassuring her safety. They went into the garden where the maids were waiting for them.

Theo grabbed one of the chair and let her sit before he took also a chair to sit. He remained calm yet a worried face was drawn into him. He took a glass of water and gave it to her.

"Here! Drink this!", he said.

Aya drank the glass of water in a refinely manner. "Thank you, brother!"

"Are you doing things on your own again, sis?, " he asked.

A little bit confused but she knew that Theo knows her a lot more than her brother Brian nor their father. He can sense if she is lying or not.

I guess I should tell him the truth she thought. She sighed and told her everything that happened today.

"Just as I've thought!" Theo remarked after she told him about the incident and about her investigating Mr. Aldrich Bekkon.

"That's what you get when you get too hooked in one of our business problems. From now on, let us do our job. You should concentrate on other matters especially your love life." Theo stretched his arms and carefully took a slice of cake in front of them and put it on her plate.

"Speaking of love life, how are you with Elsa?" She took a glimpse at him before taking a sushi roll and put it on his plate just like what he did to her.

Her brother's face were glowing with happiness when he heard the name of his fiancé.

"We're doing great! We are planning to settle down when she graduates from her masteral degree". He happily took a bite with the slice of sushi roll on his fork.

They continue happily chatting while eating when they sensed another person staring at them. A man dressed in a black business suit was watching over them. She smiled when they recognized who was the man standing at the door. It was none other than her other older brother, Brian.

Brian came closer to them with a smile on his face. Cheerfully, he embraced his siblings. Aya thought for a second if she should tell her brother about what she knows or not. They have just been reunited once more. The thought of that made her heart happy while looking at his brothers. She doesn't want to ruin the good mood so she stayed quiet for a while.

"Sis, did you heard about the embezzlement case in my company?" Brian seriously looked at her.

Upon hearing his question, She felt the urge not to speak about it so she changed the topic. "Brother, didn't you went to Jaco Island with Xia? How was the trip?"

"Yes, we did went there and we had a lot of fun being together. Why are you changing the topic anyway?" His being persistent never let her go.

She turned her face towards Theo with a consolidating look at him. Theo nodded as if giving her signal to go on with what their brother seek onto her. Then she looked back at Brian who was eagerly awaiting for her reply.

"Yes, I heard about it and had it investigated as soon as it reached me. I'll give you the reports given to me but for the meantime, let's enjoy the dinner. Since we rarely have dinner together. Will you, brother?"

With a pleading look on her, Brian felt guilty. This was just a simple request from her dearest sister who was always been there to support and love them unconditionally. Who was he not to give her atmost request. He granted her wish and they had fun on that night. The flowers in the garden were also rejoicing with their scent overflowing around them.
