''Good morning! Rise and shine, sweetheart. You got to go to work today so get that beautiful perky ass up, '' I say with a smile plastered on my face as I see her snuggling closer towards the pillows surrounding her, groaning in her sleep.

With one hand in my slacks' pocket, I look down at her as she enjoys her sleep. The way she has the comforter wrapped around her body like a burrito has somehow managed to make me chuckle early in the morning. Even though her hair is a mess and sticking out in different directions with her face slightly oily from her night skincare routine, she seems to be peacefully calm which eases me.

Yet, I still find her the?most?beautiful woman alive.

Going down on one knee, I lean closer towards her before pushing her hair away from her face; but not even receiving a single movement which causes me to poke her cheek, once, twice and even thrice.

Kenna groans as she starts to open her eyes, looking directly at me with confusion before glancing down at my outfit—seeing that I'm ready and well-dressed for my day at the office which causes her to sit up straight, ''I'm late for work!'' She exclaims, pushing the comforter away.

I laugh, watching her panic as she starts to run towards her room—her old room where she used to stay before things started to get pretty heat up between us more precisely, serious. When we got back from Paris, we immediately started to share the same bed in the same bedroom but couldn't find the time to move all of her clothes to my room because. . . well there are a few reasons:

1) She has a lot of clothes.

2) Don't forget her collection of shoes.

3) Have I said anything about her makeup? She did shop a lot at Sephora at least once a month but I haven't seen her went there ever since we got married.

4) Yes, her handbags.

5) There are just a lot of shit. Let me remind that she didn't bring the rest of her stuff from her own apartment. . . yet.

So. . . we might be turning her old room into her own private closet which will be discussed later in the future. For now, we'll be sleeping together in my bedroom for the rest of our lives. That way, I can easily know if there's anything wrong with her, with us.

Within seconds, I have made my way towards her to wrap my arms around her waist, pulling her close to my body as she continues to panic; her eyes wandering around the room to look for a certain something. ''Baby, you're not late.'' I say.

Her blue eyes shot up to look into mine, ''What do you mean? Of course I'm late. You're all ready for work and I'm still in my pyjamas, '' She replies with a pout, letting me tap onto the bridge of her nose which causes her to grin; her cheeks heating up.

''What was that for?'' She raises an eyebrow.

''Pouting makes you look cute. I can't help it if you keep on doing that, '' My lips land on the side of her cheek. ''So, don't tempt me, Mrs. Ashton. You might not be able to get to work, at all.'' The way my lips brush against the side of her neck causes her to close her eyes and grip onto my arm, leaving me to think that she actually enjoys this.

''So. . . get your beautiful ass in the shower, '' One of my hands run down to softly touch her butt before letting go. ''And get ready for work. Then, head downstairs because I've prepared us breakfast.'' I add with a quick wink at the end.

Kenna grins, ''Can't wait to see what you have prepared.''

After about thirty-minutes of waiting for her to walk down the stairs, she has finally made up for it with her usual scent; making me eye her hair, her face and down to her clothes—seeing that she has her hair high up into a ponytail today with her face added with light makeup to just appear awake and presentable. As for her clothes, well. . . they're not going to attract any further attention which is good because I know how the male doctors would go crazy over her if she wears anything much more appealing.

''Omelettes! Yum, '' She exclaims.

Then, she takes a seat near the kitchen island as she grabs onto the fork to take a small bite of the well-prepared omelette. I lean forward, ''How does it taste like? Good?'' I ask, watching her chew as she continues to nod, taking a sip of water afterwards.

''Reminds me of how lucky I am to have you, '' She winks at me as she takes another bite of the omelette which causes me to smile at her, feeling my heart racing and my cheeks somehow heating up; probably my blood flow has increased from the words she said.

''At what time will you be home today?'' I ask, taking a sip of my own glass of water.

''Around six or seven, '' She replies with a shrug. ''I don't have much for today except for appointments with a couple of patients but there are new interns coming in and some are assigned under me, '' She continues to speak as she finishes her breakfast, immediately drinking her water.

''I'll probably be home earlier than you. Just going to head out with Flynn to shop for some Christmas gifts after work for my employees. Then, I'll take us out for dinner, how does that sound?'' I caress the side of her face as she nods, agreeing.

I look down at my wrist watch before sighing, ''Ah, got to blast—meeting starts in thirty minutes and I can't be late. I need to get back on track, '' I mutter but loud enough for Kenna to hear as she continues to nod, taking her supplements for the day before earning a kiss from her on the cheek as I quickly walk out of the house and straight towards my car.

Just as I'm about to enter my car, I hear her calling out my name which causes me to turn around; seeing her running towards me before handling me my phone, ''What would you do without me?'' She says, chuckling.

I lean in to kiss her on the lips, feeling her responding back towards me as she cups onto my face while I place my hands on her waist, feeling the smallness of her body. The kiss lasts for a few seconds but long enough to remind how much we both love each other deeply, ''I love you, baby. See you tonight, '' I peck onto her cheek.

It doesn't take me long to drive down the road and straight towards my office.


''With all due respect, Mr. Ashton, we would like your brother's cooperation in this. We've had several meetings for the past two weeks and it's a shame to not see him joining us, '' One of the board of directors say, leaving me to sigh deeply; knowing that Alain is actually nowhere in New York City which is indeed a shame.

I rest both of my palms on the desk as I bend forward, all attention on me. ''There are certain undiscussed matters. Don't get me wrong, Mr. Lee but I'm simply not my brother's babysitter and I certainly don't know his whereabouts, '' I reply before looking around the room to see them exchanging glances.

''He is still the company's chief financial officer, isn't he? It'd be good to see him play his role than being completely absent due to 'certain undiscussed matters' and please don't misunderstand me, Mr. Ashton—I simply want the best for this company as one of the board directors.'' He replies, looking directly at me as I clench my jaw before curving my lips into a small smile; listening to him. ''We still need to discuss the financial details, '' He adds.

I stand up still, showing off the perfect posture before shoving both of my hands in my slacks' pockets. ''For

on't tell that's not what you do to your wife? I can simply?fuck?her for you, '' He replies, somehow testing my patience as I feel the anger rising.

The two of them continues to laugh, leaving me in to try and breathe properly even though my patience has reached its limit.

''Imagine her screaming my name as I?fuck?her deep and hard or how she would cry out for me to go faster and faster just so that she can feel the?fucking?pleasure, '' He continues as he leans closer and closer towards my face. ''Then, I'd shove her face down onto the?fucking?bed just to spank her hard so that she wouldn't be able to sit properly the next day. Man, your wife is giving me all these?fucking?urges.'' He chuckles.

Just like that, my patience has somehow gone off the roof as I push myself away from the man's grasps before punching straight onto his face; continuously trying to break his bones as I go on top of him, continuing to punch as I grip hard around his neck.

''You don't talk like that about my wife!'' I find myself lost in the waves of anger, my eyes tearing as I feel my hands go numb; even though the amount of pressure that goes onto his face would cause pain to myself even more, ''Don't—''

I am cut off with the other man pulling onto my arms, almost choking me as I hit onto the ground; the baby crying louder and louder due to the screaming and shouting but everything around me seems to have faded away as they begin to kick onto my stomach and hit me hard onto my face.

My eyes wander around to see Flynn looking at me in surprise, his hands shaking in fear as he starts to search for his phone but I shake my head; not wanting him to risk his life because after all, this police will be here any minute, as the alarms go off, leaving the two men to panic.

I look up at the ceiling, coughing up blood as I turn to look at the woman crying as she looks at me; her arms securing her baby that has somehow stopped crying from being dropped on purpose by the other man. My body aches in pain and for some reason, the pain seems to have seeped into my skin.

Just as I turn around to stand straight on my feet or at least sit, I feel an undeniably amount of pain at the back of my head as my body falls onto the ground again but this time, numbness is all I feel as my body feels impossible to move.

The baseball bat drops onto the ground in front of me, making me know that I was hit with one as they start to shout, trying to run out of the building before the police arrives as Flynn runs towards me, his hands reaching out to grab onto my arms, trying to make me stay awake.

''Mr. Ashton! Mr. Ashton!'' He shouts, his eyes are widening which confuses me.

For some unknown reason, too, everything around me seems to move in a slower pace. The police running in with the SWAT team as they secure the building, making sure that the bad guys won't get away as they shout, scream for them to stay where they are but I can't seem to respond to anything as my sight blurs out.

''No, no, no, sir. You have to stay awake!'' Flynn continues to shout, reaching for my hand.

My chest hurts as I continue to cough out blood, feeling the pain beginning at my ribs but before I can respond, my eyes wander up to the ceiling as everything feels to get quite unclear; leaving me to feel the continuous pain at the back of my head.

I look straight into the light as I see a familiar face, a familiar beautiful face staring back at me with a frown. My eyebrows furrow at the sight of her, seeing that her eyes are as blue and her smile is as sweet, but that frown. . . that frown.

It's not that I'm not trying and it's not that I don't want to stay awake but I find myself draining away, away from the light and even away from reality. My eyes are closing as the blackness surrounds me, letting me to believe that this is all a dream instead of something real, more like a nightmare.

''Kenna. . . '' I breathe out, glancing up at Flynn for a couple of seconds before closing my eyes, the noises disappearing.

People say that when you die, you would and should follow the light but how do they know? Why should we even follow the light? How would they know if there's going to be a light? What if it's all a goddamn?joke and there will only be pain and discomfort. Just like now. They also say that when you die. . . you feel at peace as if you've left it all behind without any intentions of looking back.

Then again, why am I feeling anything but peace?

My chest is hurting, my head is aching and my soul. . . my soul seems to be stuck and attached onto my body, still. I can't seem to see anything around me or hear but the pain is all too clear to be a mistake or a dream because the pain is somewhat. . . vivid.

There's only thing that I can be sure of. Just one and one only, nothing else needs confirmation.

So, Kenna Anne, till death do us part, indeed.
