Carla's eyes had reddened out of emotional pain. She couldn't help her tears from rolling down her cheeks like an endless brook of sadness. She desperately yelled deep inside her mind, 'Why! This is our only home. Why would you do this to us!' Sean was still crying out loud by her side. However, nothing could be done. Slowly, she wiped her tears away and raised her head, staring at the thick black smoke coming out from the balcony while grinding her teeth in fury.

It took the firefighters several hours until the fire was put out.

After a duration that seemed like a year, Sean was exhausted. Carla remained in her position and she was still sobbing in unbearable pain. She couldn't think of any reason why their home would be set on fire by anyone.

She thought over and over again. Every time before she left home, she would always check on the gas and turn off the electricity because Sean was always home alone. She had to make sure that her brother was safe when he was alone by himself.

But, how did all this happen?

When she went out this afternoon, she remembered that she had done her routine check on the gas and electricity. 'What caused the fire?' she wondered.

After a while, people standing in front of the building had returned to their home as their spontaneous curiosity began to fade. Carla forced herself went upstairs with Sean. As soon as they arrived in front of their door, Carla stopped. Everything in there had been burned to ashes except for the silver frame of the sofa and the TV. It was a terrible scene in every aspect.

She had repeatedly told herself to face it with bravery on her way up; however, the debris of what was once their beloved home had cast a spell on her. She couldn't budge an inch.

Sean had stopped crying before they came up to the building. Maybe his tears had ran out. After seeing their sweet home burned out to ruins, he couldn't help but burst into tears again. He sniffled as he asked his sister, "Carla...Oh no... Oh no... Carla, where will we go..."

It was perhaps too much for a ten-year-old kid to witness his home crumble into nothing. He ran into Carla's arms and cried intensely, forcing himself to forget the ruined place he once called "home".

"Dear Sean, listen. It doesn't matter as long as we are fine. Wherever we are, that's where our home will be." She managed to wipe away his tears and put her hands on his cheeks, as she whispered, "Sean, remember how I always complained about our tiny home? I always wanted to buy a bigger place. Don't you always want a study room? When I have enough money, I will buy one of those houses with a big study room so you can put all your books in there. I promise you!"

Carla struggled to not give away her fears to Sean and locked her teary eyes with Sean's. She knew that Sean was everything she had right now as she patted on his shoulder gently, trying to encourage her little brother and ease his tension.

"Mm, but Carla... this is our home. I like it here than anywhere else..." Sean mewled. New teardrops began to appear from his reddened eyes.

Carla gently wiped his tears again and sighed. She told Sean, "Hey, what goes around comes back around. I don't want to leave here too. But we don't have a choice, do we? Sean, let's be brave. There will always be a place for us. There always will be.

Stay here. I will check around to see if anything is intact. Would you wait for me here?" Sean looked up to Carla and nodded with tears flowing down his little face. Carla stroke his head gently and walked inside their apartment.

Carla looked around at the gate. She was hoping to find something that was left unburned but she failed. Everything was burned down and not a single piece of the apartment was fit for use.

For Carla, the fire was one of the most startling incident in her life. Her entire home had crumbled into dust in a matter of seconds.

It was a heart wrenching moment for her to watch her room and her belongings burnt.

She calculated the entire loss in her head and reckoned that it would take an exorbitant amount of money to recover her apartment. Also, in order to fix the interior and to refurnish the place, it would require even more amount.

Carla knew her financial situation. She wouldn't have enough money for the redecoration and refurnishing. Life really hadn't been easy on her lately.

At this very moment, she regretted returning the ownership of the business shops. If it wasn't for her pride, they should have collected enough rent to rebuild their home soon enough.

She also questioned her choice and wondered that if she should have agreed to be Terence's girlfriend and did what he had asked, at least she would have someone to count on at this moment. Even if Terence eventually realized that she wasn't the one, she could have at least got some compensation from their relationship. Such thoughts flooded her head, which made her gasp for breath. 'May

a golden bachelor of the most weathy and powerful family in JA City behind and go back to your small place? I don't understand it..."

Violet banked on her curiosity and asked her confidently.

"Violet, come on. I did answer this question last time, didn't I? People have their own choices when it comes to their partner. Although I'm a woman, that doesn't justify the supposed necessity that a woman needs to rely on a man for a living. Maybe it's a yes for other woman, not for me though." Carla disagreed and patiently explained. When she was at JA City, Violet had enquired her a couple of times about why she rejected Terence, the golden bachelor.

"Carla, you know what? You've totally won my admiration. A lot of women said that they don't want to depend on men. But in reality? They are only talkers. But you impressed me by abandoning the golden life that every woman would die for. You are truly a heroine if I may say. I wonder who you were in your previous life. You may have been a royal since you don't seem to give a damn about other people's money in this life. The stubbornness must have been inherited from your previous soul!"

Violet's words encouraged Carla, in every single way. She finally won other people's affirmation which strengthened her belief in herself even more.

Carla knew herself very well. The stubbornness was carved into her bones that nothing could force her to lower her head regardless of the circumstances.

'Maybe this is why she is the only person that Terence cares about, ' Violet thought to herself.

"Violet, stop praising me like this. I really am afraid whether I'm worthy of your praises. Also, don't say the word royalty to me again. It's so cliché to be honest." Carla laughed to Violet through the phone and looked at the clock hanging on the wall. Knowing that Sean could be home in any minute, she wanted to hang up the call and begin cooking dinner.

"Alright Violet, Sean will be home soon and I need to go prepare dinner. Thank you again for the job. I will catch up later!" she said.

After Carla hung up the phone, she danced to the kitchen as a beam appeared on her face. She hadn't been so happy ever since her home was destroyed. Singing in the kitchen happily, she started cooking dinner.

The sun set and rose up soon enough.

After Sean left home for school, Carla put on a new dress which she had bought two days earlier since all her clothes were burned by the fire. She put on some light make up and left for the interview. She was so excited to see what this job was going to offer her.

Meanwhile, on the other end of the BH City, Terence and his bodyguards were standing at the exit of the airport.

"Mr. Terence, the meeting is at 9 o'clock. If we leave now, we may still be able to get there on time," Nathan informed Terence from behind.

On the other hand, Rainer was standing close to Terence, holding his luggage.

"Okay, let's go," Terence slowly responded. He had his eyes fixed to one direction and something was shimmering deep under his dark eyes. 'Hi again, BH City. Hi, Carla, ' he murmured in his heart. While he was lost in thoughts, the same Rolls-Royce lengthened edition had arrived right in front of him. His lips curled slightly indicating a faint smile as he got in the limousine.
