The clock hit four in the evening and there was still no news of Chelsea. I tried to contact her but to no avail. She didn't respond to any of my messages or emails. This seems really weird as the rumor of our engagement broke out and she didn't even reach out to me or reacted to it.

I couldn't stop thinking about what Veronica told me when she was angry with me.

I have always resented her from the day she bullied you and still today because of a reason you don't know. I wanted her to tell you everything but since she didn't I will tell you.

I remember it clearly. Though she didn't tell me what it was, I was already on point wanting to know what was going on. Because of the moment, I didn't pressure her to tell me. So, all these times I was right. There was really something between Veronica and Chelsea, that has been bugging Veronica and it was why it was being hard for her to warm up around Chelsea.

"What is it, Veronica?" I mumbled as I looked blankly at my laptop screen when there was a knock on my cabin door and I looked up to find Noah.

"Sir, there is someone wanting to meet you, " he said as he adjusted his glasses standing next to the door. My immediate thoughts were, Veronica.

Did she change her mind and return back to me?

"Who is it?" I asked and he looked back as he opened the door and immediately, I stood up from my chair as I recognized the person, who came in.

"You asshole!" I laughed not even bothering to mind Noah's presence as I walked around my desk and he laughed out loud as he came forward and we hugged.

"You haven't changed a bit!" he said in his thick Korean accent as we retreated back and did a handshake.

"What the hell? Why did you not tell me about your arrival?" I asked as I showed him in and towards my couch and looked back at Noah and signaled him for coffee. He nodded and walked out, quietly closing the door behind him.

"Its because you fucker didn't even bother to let me know about your engagement, " he narrowed his eyes at me and I leaned back heaving a sigh.

"It's not what you think it is, " I exclaimed as I raked my hair and he furrowed at me as I sat there explaining him everything that was going on for the next hour.

"Man! What a situation, " he pulled his suit as he leaned back and nodded. I noticed how different he looks from the last time we met. Its been probably a year since I last saw him. He had been to the states a couple of times and every time, I was the one who went up to his country to meet him.

He looked thinner from the last time we met. His hair styled as slick back and he was in a black suit with a white shirt underneath. He looked handsome and as usual, he had that glow on his skin. I knew if I ask him about that glow then he would only tell me to try his restaurant's special dishes made from herbs.

"Speaking of that! Now, I understand!" he said and this time I was the one who furrowed at him as he clasped his finger and his mouth formed up in a thin line.

"Understand what?" I asked as he picked up his coffee and gulped down the last amount left and kept the now empty cup on the table. "I talked to Veronica before she dashed back to somewhere. She is still the same, running here and there, " he said and I nodded.

"What did you two speak?"

"Nothing much! I was just confused when I got the news of you being with Chelsea. I was like, how can this be? Every time we talked, you couldn't stop thinking about Veronica all these years. Just I kinda blabbered that wit, Veronica, " he shrugged and I looked at him as if he had two heads.

"You did what?" I couldn't explain my own raise of voice but he just grinned and leaned back on his seat while I remained gawking at him.

"And yo-"

"What? It's good that she knows. I mean why do you even care about it? You two are together right? How does it matter?" he asked as he got up an

anyone to touch him. Not even my sister could ever pass to touch him, "

"Well! I think he likes me as much I do to him, " Veronica smiled as she kissed Shadow's head who started wagging his tail and whined barking at Veronica, excited.

"Look up there!" I pointed towards a table and Veronica looked up and she gasped.

"You have a cat too!" she laughed.

"Her name is Hitler, " I told her as I pointed at my brown and white-colored cat who just sat there staring at Veronica, curiously.

"I had adopted her a year ago, " I said and Veronica furrowed at me.

"Hitler?" she whispered and I chuckled looking back at my cat who was anything but interested to come down. "You will know soon, " I said and Veronica though didn't quite get it, went back to pat Shadow affectionately as I sat there smiling at them.

"I love animals, " she cooed at Shadow and seeing her happy made me happy as I played with the keys.

"So, this is the living area, as you can see. I have only two bedrooms. I have converted the third one as my lab. You go around and go on have a shower while I order some food. What would you like to eat?" I asked as I picked Hitler up from the table and she meowed snarling at me immediately as I let her go and she ran up to Veronica, sniffing her leg as she started rubbing herself on her.

"What the hell?" I scowled at the cat as I noticed her behavior and Veronica laughed as she went ahead and picked up the cat who looked anything but angry.

"I understand the name now, " she joked cuddling Hitler who was rubbing her head on Veronica's chin.

"What's wrong with me?" I couldn't help but scoff as I got rid of my jacket and Veronica laughed.

"There's nothing wrong with you. I will cuddle to you, " she said and I smiled narrowing my eyes at her.

"Remember that! I change my mind. I will cook today, " I told her and her face brightened up as she smiled widely, patting Hitler who meowed and purred in her arms.

"Really? That's perfect! Let me get a shower first! I will help you with the dinner, " she told me and then walked towards the other bedroom with Hitler in her arms as Shadow barked and ran after her as she closed the door as soon as he entered. I stood their alone as I scoffed at my pets but at the same time smiling to myself finding it cute to see three of them mixing well.

There was a reason why I called my cat, Hitler. She resembled Veronica's personality. She was sassy but at times she was affectionate. She would only go to the one, whom she liked and never the other way around. d

I guess, they found their match.
