After Nathan and Rainer left Terence frowned at the picture that was on the table. He then picked it up and fed it through the shredder and threw the shredded pieces in the trash.

Terence had long gone and forgotten about the love he once had for the girl in the picture. It was ten years ago. If it hadn't fallen from the bookshelf during their passionate lovemaking, he wouldn't have even known that it was still there and be reminded of it.

But Rainer was right. It was a thing of the past

even if he didn't remember it didn't matter. After all, it was no big deal. It was only an infatuation from his youthful years. Right now, he only had eyes for Carla and no one else.

Besides, it was a long time ago.

Terence decided that today he would turn a new leaf

no matter what had happened in the past or what might happen in the future. One thing he was certain was that Carla would be the only woman in his heart, and that wasn't going to change for anything or anyone.

Terence figured that Carla would have landed at the airport of HA City by now, so he picked up the cell phone on the table and dialed her number.

At the airport of HA City

as soon as Carla got off the plane with her luggage, she got a call from Terence.

"Have you arrived yet?"

Carla put her suitcase down and sat on it while she spoke to Terence. "Yes, I just arrived, and I was just about to go to the hotel that you booked for me."

"Okay, just wait on the curbside the car I have arranged to pick you up is on the way. I'll send you the license plate number to your phone, so you know which car to look out for," Terence said as he sent her the plate number of the car. "Carla, you're a stranger to HA City and not familiar with anyone or the place. Try to avoid going out at night."

"Come on, Terence. I'm not a little kid anymore. Don't worry about me. I'll stay safe," said Carla as she kept an eye on the cars passing by.

"I get what you are saying. But you can't be too careful. You've never been there, and I'm not there with you." Terence was still worried about her. Even though he had arranged his people to protect her. If she found herself in real danger, she would have to get out of it herself.

Carla suddenly smiled and guessed what Terence was anxious about. "Are you afraid that Bonnie will try to do something to hurt me? It will be okay. HA City is such a big city, and there are so many people here. How could she possibly know that I'm here?"

"Okay, well, if there is anything that you need or have a problem with whether it's to do with work or anything else, please don't hesitate to call me for anything. Okay?" said Terence.

"Yes, yes, yes. I get it," Carla answered before she said bye and hung up.

Then she saw the car that

d. Anyway, it was still early, and it was probably a good idea to have dinner first and then go back to the hotel.

"Well, okay, then. Thank you."

She trusted Hardy Lin because he was the one that Terence had arranged for her.

After driving for a while, Hardy Lin finally stopped the car at a remote location. Carla looked around a little confused and asked, "Hardy, is there a restaurant out here in the middle of nowhere?"

"Oh, well, Miss Carla, just as the old proverb goes, 'Good wine needs no bush.' Although this restaurant is a little secluded, the food is excellent and delicious. You'll know what I'm talking about when you try it," replied Hardy Lin whose eyes were shining strangely. He got out of the car and looked around nervously and then walked over to open the door for Carla and walked ahead with her leaving the car behind.

That was when Carla noticed that there was something wrong with the way he walked.

"Hardy, what's wrong with your legs?" Carla asked, surprised. 'Before I went into the factory, he was fine. Why is he limping now?' Carla wondered.

"Oh—I'm fine. It's just my rheumatism playing up," hesitated Hardy Lin. Then he suddenly stopped in his tracks and said anxiously, "Actually, Miss Carla, let's go back to the car."

Carla looked at him in surprise. She wondered what was going on with him. He was acting very peculiar.

'Why would he suggest to bring me out all this way to have dinner and then say that we should go back without even having dinner?' thought Carla.

But Hardy Lin seemed to have made up his mind. He grabbed her arm and began to nearly drag her back, hurriedly to the car.

Just at that moment before they made it back to the car, there was a loud gritty voice that called out from behind them.

"Stop right there! Since you're here, it's too late to run now!"
