Sophia's POV:

"Whoa! Am I seeing things, Mom?"

I heard Rian asked her mother the moment we stepped out of the plane.

"Is that Dani?"

My head instantly followed her gaze and I had to blink twice to make sure if it's really Daniel and that I wasn't just played by my own eyes. But it's him, leaning on his black Bentley with both hands on his pockets, and together with Alex and Mom's driver, he's also waiting for us.

"No, sweety. It's really your brother."

"But what is he doing here? Does he know about Belle's competition?"

"Yeah, he called me earlier to pick up his wife."

I furrowed my eyebrows but I didn't react to their conversation.

"Wow! This is getting more interesting, right Belle?" Rian nudged my elbow while we're walking towards the three cars.

I just rolled my eyes and remained quiet as I don't want her to add her speech anymore.

"Hi, son. How long have you been waiting for us?" Mom hugged him and he kissed her cheek.

"Almost fifteen minutes, Mom. How's your flight?"

"Well, it's tiring but it's worth it because your wife entered the semi-finals." She said excitedly.

He looked at me but he didn't utter any word.

"Big brother." Rian hugged him while Alex just patted his shoulder. "What are you doing here?"

"Of course, I'm waiting for you and Mom."

"Waiting for us or waiting for your wife?" She asked and I avoided her gaze when she winked at me.

But I turned my head back to Daniel when he speak.

"Yeah, I'm also waiting for her because we have lot of things to talk about." He mumbled but his eyes were focused on me.

"Like what?"

"Things that we should discuss as husband and wife."

He said stepping closer to me and I gulped when he pulled me into a hug. I felt my heart pounding when he pulled back and give me a lingering kiss on my lips.

-'Am I hallucinating?'-

I asked myself silently as I was left open-mouthed when he took my suitcase from my hand and pulled it towards the compartment of his car.

I don't know how to react after that, I was left speechless because I wasn't expecting he would do that, especially in front of his mother and sister.

"By the way, Sweety, we have to go. Just call me if you need anything about the competition." Mom said as she hugged me. "

"Thank you for going with us in the US, Mom." I smiled and kissed her cheek.

"Oh, no worries. Congratulations by the way and knock them dead in the finals."

"We will, Mom."

"Alex, please take care of my daughter. I have to go now because I'm sure your father won't be able to sleep until I get home."

"We all know that, Mom." Rian said and we waited until she completely get i

iece of new information from him. It brought me relief but at the same time nervousness and anxiety, because I've been searching for her for over six years and I can't wait to see Joseph suffering in jail. But I don't know what to feel if this information will just lead us to nothing again.

"Bryan, devo dirti una cosa." (Bryan, I need to tell you something.) I bite my bottom lip.

"Che cos'è?" (What is it?)

I gulped and took a deep breath. "Sono sposato, Bryan." (I'm married, Bryan.)

I closed my eyes and wait for him to say something but I heard nothing, instead, I heard him chuckled on the other line.

"Oh, Belle mi stai prendendo in giro! Chi tipo di scherzo era quello?" (Oh, Belle you're kidding me! What kind of joke was that?)

I bite my lip again when he didn't take it seriously and just laughed at me like it was the funniest joke that he had heard.

"Vorrei esserlo, ma non lo sono. È un matrimonio combinato ed ero così disperato, Bry." (I wish I were, but I'm not. It's an arranged marriage and I was so desperate, Bry.)

Then his laugh died before he curses on the other line.

"What the fuck, Yzabelle! Arranged marriage, are you serious?"

I know he's mad every time he speaks to me in english, but I still have to let him know about my marriage, because he is one of the first people I trusted and believed in me at a time when I needed help. He became a brother to me during those times.

"Yes---" I was about to explain but he cut me off.

"Why Belle, you were desperate of what?"

"Ti dirò tutto, ma non per telefono. Incontriamoci nel mio ufficio." (I'll tell you everything, but not over the phone. Let's meet in my office.)

When we ended the call, I simply looked behind me to make sure no one heard our conversation.
