Terence had a sullen look on his face. How could he pretend otherwise? Johnny was putting the moves on his woman right in front of his face.

"Afternoon? Sorry, I can't. I'm not available,"

Carla replied almost instantly. She wanted to make it very obvious that she didn't want to go out with him.

"Really? Well, where are you now? I can come by to see you," Johnny asked, determined not to give up.

Johnny was different from Noah. Noah was always gentle. And he'd never rush her or be so blunt.

But Johnny was the opposite and he could be too curt.

Terence, who sat beside her, had closed his fists into a tight ball. The veins under his skin threatened to pop out. He might be silent but he was loud with rage.

Carla wanted to take the call off the speakerphone but Terence would get even angrier. She had to keep it on.

"Johnny, I'm not in the mood to go out," Carla reasoned and followed it with a forced cough.

This man was shameless! First, he and Marcus conspired to set up Terence. And now, he wanted to pursue Carla. How despicable!

"You can't avoid me forever, Carla, I'll wait for you at Otter Bay in the afternoon. If you don't show up, you know what's gonna happen."

Johnny hung up the phone before she could reply.

"What? Johnny! What do you mean, Johnny?" Carla shouted over the phone.

"Carla! Forget about him," Terence reassured her. He took Carla into his arms and wrapped her in an embrace. He used his finger to lift her chin and said, "He's using Sean to threaten you. I'm not going to let that happen."

Sean was her only weakness, Terence knew that.

Carla opened her mouth to speak but Terence held his finger against her lips.

"You're not going to see him, Carla. I've sent my best men to look for your brother. And once he's under my men's protection, nobody can touch him. Johnny will definitely try. And it's going to end real ugly for him,"

Terence snarled. Did these people really think he was dead? How dare Johnny! How could he say something like that to Carla?

All he wanted to do right now was tear Johnny into pieces.

"Okay, I'm not gonna go. Don't be mad anymore." Carla stared into Terence's angry eyes with eyes she filled with lots of calm. She caressed his chest with her free hand. Terence closed his eyes as she listened to his breath as it calmed down.

She had no idea how Johnny got her number. But she didn't want him to have th

he right one for him.

She was clever and smart, but she was also an ordinary girl, and sometimes very vulgar. How could she be a good match for him?

He thought about sending her some money to repay her for all her help. With that money, she and her brother would be comfortable for the rest of their lives.

And when Carla arrived that night and found him, he gave up the idea.

He could still smell the rich scents of the hibiscus flower from that night. From then on, he had always seen her as the angel that brought him back from the dark.

From then on, something changed in him. He felt different, a good different.

And when Karen made that misunderstanding, it became a turning point in their relationship.

She might have been trying to hide it from him but, at that moment, she realized what and how much she felt for him.

And, at that moment, his heart melted.

He didn't want to miss her ever again.

She was the only one who made his heart flip. She could be his one and only. And if he couldn't have her then, he might miss his chance to know his only one and never have the opportunity again.

"Carla? Carla?"

Terence called. Carla had fallen asleep, dead tired. Terence moved to his side to get off of her. He lifted his arm so he could pull Carla into his arms and his embrace.

Carla breathed heavily from the exhaustion. She looked like a baby with her flushed cheeks.

"I know I've never said this to you, but I love you, Carla,"

Terence whispered. He kissed her gently on the cheeks and embraced her even tighter and brought her closer to his warm and safe chest.
