"Don't worry, baby. I'm here with you. You're safe here," Black comforted Holley as he hugged her trembling body in his arms.

"I know you want to protect me, but Rachel is too strong. She has a bodyguard Bernard protecting her, who is a highly skilled assassin. I heard that he was merciless and cruel. Plus, we don't know their whereabouts, while they know everything about us. I can't even sleep at night," Holley sobbed, her voice trembling.

"Baby, don't cry. I'll handle this. Your eyes will get all swollen and red if you keep crying, and it'll make you look all ugly. You don't want that, right? Come on now, stop crying." Black tried his best to cheer her up.

Finally Holley stopped crying. Her tear-stained face made her look charming as ever.

This image of Holley aroused Black, but he knew she wasn't feeling okay, so he let it go. He promised her, "Don't worry, Holley. I'll have my men handle this problem. I'll finish Rachel once and for all!"

"Really? You can do that?" Holley asked, surprised. She was looking at Black in admiration when suddenly she said, concerned, "But Bernard's a trained assassin. He's really strong. What if you..."

"An assassin? My family doesn't care about that. It doesn't matter if they are gangsters or government officials. No one would dare touch my father. I promise you that as soon as my father gives an order, everyone will drop everything to do it," Black said arrogantly.

Holley felt relieved.

She wasn't completely relying on Black for this. After all, she was only his girlfriend—she wasn't his wife or his family. She doubted that Rex would do so much just to help her, his son's girlfriend.

What could Black do without his father even if he did want to help her? He couldn't do anything without his father so she needed to have a backup plan just in case.

Holley was finally relieved. She looked at Black lovingly. "Black, I'm so lucky to have met you. You're the best."

"I feel the same way, baby," Black smiled. She looked so charming that he couldn't help himself—he leaned down and kissed her on the lips.

At Dream Garden

Meliss

nded by red-eyed gamblers. Melissa felt even more excited as she heard people shouting over their wins and losses.

The atmosphere was tense. Melissa couldn't keep her eyes away from the tables. She rushed to the casino staff and exchanged some chips. Since she didn't want to lose all her savings, she didn't exchange much. She decided that if she won, she would continue to play. But if she lost, she would stop playing and leave.

She thought this was a smart plan to prevent any losses. She wasn't like one of those crazy gamblers at the casino. She was confident in her plan.

As a matter of fact, if she lost, she would like to win her money back. If she won, she would want to get more. Gambling could turn anyone into a greedy monster—gamblers often didn't know how to stop even when they'd lost everything.

The first round started.

The croupier started distributing the cards deftly. When Melissa got her cards, she didn't even look because she was afraid they weren't good enough to win. Her hands were trembling as she clutched on the cards.

'Whatever! It's only the first round!' she thought.

After a few moments, Melissa finally showed her cards.

It felt like hours to Melissa. Her hands were damp from being nervous, her eyebrows were furrowed, and her hair was a mess.

Melissa was staring intently at each of them as the rest of the group showed their cards.

"Aargh! I win!"
