There was a loud sound of something crashing disturbed me as my eyes snapped open and saw the maid cleaning my room. She accidentally pushed the vase near the door and it broke. She had a distressed look on her face as she picked up the broken pieces.

"What's going on?" Veronica walked in as she the vase was broken and then back at me. I was doing my work when I slipped to slumber on the recliner.

"What are you doing? You broke my vase!" Veronica exclaimed as she looked down at the maid who looked as if she was on the verge of crying.

"Veronica, " I sighed as I called her and she looked at me. Her rage subsiding and she crouched down next to the maid trying to see the face of the made who was in distress.

"What? Are you crying?" Veronica looked amused all of a sudden.

"Over this vase?" she looked even more amused as she picked one of the pieces and looked back at the girl.

"What? Was it your friend?" she asked and the maid finally looked up at her.

"I-I am sorry, " she whispered and that was when Veronica put her hand on her head and ruffled her hair.

"Who cries over a broken vase? Now, clean this all up and bring me food. I am hungry, " she said and the maid's eye widened as she nodded and smiled up at Veronica when she stood up and made her way to me.

"You looked angry, to be honest. Anyone would cry, " I told her and she rolled her eyes as she crossed her arms over her chest.

"You know the price of that vase? She broke a rare Ming dynasty vase from China. Who would not be angry? I thought you were the one who broke it so I was going to ask you to pay back, " she told me a smirk and that made me roll my eyes at her.

"Don't throw it away. Just gather it and put it in a bag. The vase can be reconstructed. I will have it sent back to China, " Veronica told the maid who nodded and got up.

"Ma'am you can deduct my salary to compensate for the vase, " the maid said and Veronica looked back at me with a mischievous glint in her eyes. I knew she was going to have fun putting the young maid on the line. I shook my head to tell her not to do that but she didn't listen.

"Okay, as for the price, no salary for you for twenty-seven years, " Veronica told her and immediately turned and walked out of the room leaving a visibly shocked maid in the room. I chuckled as I shook my head at them.

"She is kidding. Don't worr

w her totally safe and sound. Her hair was up on curls and her face masked with a green colored cream.

"Oh hi! bro, " she gave me a toothy grin as she looked my way and slammed the magazine on the table getting off as she made her way to me.

"I missed you so much, " she said and threw her arms over me for a hug as I stood there in shock. But as she hugged me, my senses got back as I held her hand and made her stand before me.

"What the hell is this Amelia? Do you think this is funny?" I was filled with rage as I yelled at her. The whole fourteen-hour flight made me so anxious and I could hardly close my eyes for a second. I was terribly worried about Amelia and here she was, perfectly fine and normal.

"What?" she asked as she pouted.

"Are you kidding me? Do you think this is funny? I was told by Ron that you had an accident. Do you know how worried I was? I couldn't blink my eyes for fourteen hours in the damn flight and look at you!" I yelled at her and she narrowed her eyes at me.

"Oh really? Then think how I would have felt when I heard my brother is getting engaged and I have not been introduced to my sister-in-law yet. Serves you right!" she screamed back putting her hand on her waist.

"What?" I managed to say even though I was confused as hell.

"Don't act as if you know nothing. Dad told me about your engagement with that Kinsley girl. This is not fair! I should be the one to know about your fiancee first!" she whined and all I did was stare at her in shock as if she had two heads in her body.

What the hell is she talking about?
