'What the heck—What is this?' thought Carla.

Carla looked at the jumbled words on the screen. Nothing made sense. The characters were all garbled. 'What could it mean?' she frowned displeased and closed the window. 'Was the email a virus?'

The thought crossed her mind that the message could be in some code. Either way, she was disappointed about not being able to read the email.

'What a shame!'

Carla accepted that she wasn't going to be able to read the email and cast it aside. She decided to watch a film as she had initially planned.

It was a thriller. Carla went to get some snacks and then continued watching the film. Halfway through the movie, Carla could feel the building tension and fear within herself due to the film's plot. With her eyes wide open and glued to the screen, she absentmindedly chewed on a snack as she watched the exciting scene unfold before her. All of a sudden, a window popped up on the computer screen.

"Arhh—" Carla shrieked.

With the added tension and suspense from the movie, Carla jumped and instinctively pushed back hard on the chair. The chair overbalanced, and she landed on the floor.

As she lay on the floor rubbing her head, she heard a voice coming from the computer.

"Terence? Err—Where are you?"

Bryant's face popped up in the little window on the screen. He frowned because he saw that Terence was online. However, he was nowhere to be seen. He wanted to report what was happening with the investigation.

Bryant peered into the screen trying to spot Terence

and then he saw a chair appear in view, but still no sight of Terence.

"Terence, where are you?" Assuming that Terence was somewhere in the room, Bryant began with the report. "The things that you asked me to investigate are almost done. The Hua's sons, York and Tristan, are not ordinary rivals.

They won't be easy to deal with, let alone their brother, Noah. Now he's a real crafty one! Terence, it's going to be really tough for you to remove all of the obstacles for your future wife."

Carla, who was still on the floor, listened in shock.

'What's he talking about?

Why is he talking about the Hua family?

I've got nothing to do with the Hua's. Then who was Terence's future wife that he is referring to?' thought Carla. Her mind was running at a million miles an hour.

"Terence, why are you hiding it from everyone? I know that you want to marry the daughter of the Hua family. So why don't you tell anyone? You're just making things complicated, and people misunderstand you because of that."

Suddenly the chair toppled over again.

Bryant stared at the screen in surprise and with a frown on his face. He was wondering what the heck was going on. He could see that Terence was online, and one mo

for her?" Sophie explained nervously. She could see the angry look on Terence's face.

Terence didn't say anything. He just clenched his teeth and strode out to the parking lot.

Still dressed in his business suit, Terence sped out of the parking lot shortly afterward on an off-road motorbike.

Terence accelerated the motorbike at full throttle as he searched for any trace of Carla along the beach.

Finally, he saw a small figure curled up on the bank in the distance.

It reminded him of a lonely and helpless little kitten.

The serene sound of waves lapping up at the shoreline was interrupted by the thunderous roar of a motorbike. Carla looked up and saw a man with a black helmet on a black motorcycle heading her way.

She felt intimidated by the sight, and there was nowhere for her to run or hide.

Suddenly she felt regret for staying out so late on her own. She held her breath as she watched

the motorbike stop in front of her.

When the man removed the helmet and strode up to her, she was relieved to find that it was Terence. He pulled her into his arms and hugged her tightly.

"Carla, why did you come out here alone? You didn't even take your cell phone with you! I was worried half to death when I couldn't find you!"

Carla smiled gently and said, "It's not my fault. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the sunset and forgot the time. Look, isn't it beautiful?"

Terence breathed a sigh of relief. He had thought that she might have been unhappy for some reason. He caressed her silky hair and said, "It is. But the next time when you want to see the sunset, tell me, and I'll come with you. We can watch it together."

Carla didn't reply. She hugged him tightly and placed her cheek on his chest, listening to his heartbeat. After a while, she asked, "Terence— How long will you like me for?"
