"Double hit?" Ximena uttered the buzz word. She didn't even know what it meant. It seemed that Molly had not fully understood it either.

Aaron nodded and then gave her a hint indicating that she could begin. Therefore, she didn't ask anymore.

A clever person always knew what could be asked and what shouldn't be asked.

Ximena played several games and lost them all, disastrously. In the blink of an eye, the previously high-piled chips were almost all gone. Now only one layer of chips was left on the gambling table in front of her.

"I don't want to play anymore." Ximena shrugged and muttered, "It sucks." While saying that, she stood up and turned around to leave the gambling table. However, as she did, she caught sight of a familiar person, and her demeanor had changed.

Aaron immediately sensed that something was wrong, and he followed her gaze. However, all that he saw was several people crying out vexed around a slot machine. Very soon, one or two rude and impolite people among the group began to beat and kick the machine.

"I'm going to the ladies' room," Ximena said, walking towards the washroom that was indicated by arrows. In contrast to the hall of the casino, the passage to the washroom was much quieter.

Ximena looked around and found that there were only a few hand basins in addition to a men's room and a ladies' room there. She stood awkwardly by the door of the ladies' room. Perhaps it was strange that she just stood there doing nothing that everybody going into and out of the washroom glanced at her in confusion. However, they continued about their own business without paying too much attention to her.

Ximena waited until the ladies' room was empty and then she entered. As soon as she walked in, she scanned the room in search of somebody, and finally, her gaze fell on the person in front of the big mirror. A woman who was dressed in a blue cleaning uniform, and had a pair of pink rubber gloves on her hands was wiping water stains from the hand basins with a cloth.

She was so absorbed in her work that she hadn't noticed Ximena in the room with her quietly observing her from a corner. Finally, Ximena walked over to her, and at the same time, the woman turned around and almost ran into her.

The woman gasped in shock. When she raised her eyes and saw the woman before her, she couldn't help but feel surprised. "It's you!" she cried out.

Ximena nodded slightly and smiled. "What are you doing here?" she asked.

"Well," the woman said with a smile while looking down at her hands in the rubber gloves. "I have a part-time job here. I live alone, and I don't have anything else to do when I finish my job as a nanny, so I work as

unfortunate event that had happened during the time of her grandmother's generation without knowing the full details about why it had happened.

Ximena ran her fingers lightly across the old yellowed photo in her hand. It was a picture of her mother and her aunt. In the photo, they were both dressed in the same clothes and had their hair braided the same way. They looked so happy together, just like two blooming sunflowers in the sunlight.

Even though they were from two different mothers, it seemed that they were very close as sisters and got along quite well with each other. However, because her aunt had killed her maternal grandmother and then had gone to jail for it, Freya and Ximena's mother had drifted apart from each other. Later both of Ximena's parents had died in the accident. Her aunt must have been filled with deep regret and sorrow that she could never see her older sister ever again.

Ximena felt crestfallen, and her arms drooped heavily into her lap. She turned her head slowly and gazed out of the window at the cloudy night sky outside. There were only a few stars that twinkled once in a while which were soon covered by the dark clouds.

Suddenly, the distinct sound of footsteps broke through the quietness in the house. Ximena snapped out of her gloomy daydream and quickly slid the documents back into the envelope and then put the envelope into a drawer of the bedside table. At the same time, Aaron walked into the room.

The smell of alcohol wafted in the air, and Ximena frowned slightly. She looked at Aaron. His cold face looked somewhat drunk, and then he walked straight to her. However, before Ximena had the chance to say anything, Aaron pressed her down onto the bed and covered her soft lips with his mouth that had the stench of alcohol.
