Daniels's POV:

"Nanay Emily, have you noticed Sophia this morning?"

I asked my nanny when I couldn't find her around the house after searching for almost five minutes.

"Oh, she didn't tell you?"

"She didn't tell me what?"

"That she's going to stay in her old apartment."

"She's going to what?" I asked furrowing my eyebrows.

"Yes, she told me she's going to stay in her old apartment because they need to rehearse for the grand finals."

"But why does she needs to stay there again? She can-----"

"Anak, let her be, it's just for a week." She smiled patting my arm. "Your wife really wanted to win this competition, as she said she will donate all the prize she'll get to the typhoon victims in Amador City."

"She will donate all the prize, but why would she do that?" I asked feeling surprised. I didn't expect that it was her real reason for joining the competition.

"Maybe she just wanted to help those people who have been affected by the calamity. The typhoon left them devastated."

I was left speechless for a second.

"But you can call her if you want, so you can talk to her."

"It's okay Nanay, just tell her whenever she came back to sign these papers."

I gave her the blue folder that consist of the new contract and project of KI Corporation with Mr. Giovanni's Company. I can't understand why that old man and his team still needs Sophia's signature for this project, but I have no choice but to agree.

"Why don't you just call her or go to her old apartment to make her sign these papers?"

"I don't have enough time, Nanay. I need to go now because I still have an appointment with our new business partners."

"Oh, okay. Don't worry, I'll just give these to her when she come home."

"Thank you, Nanay." I said kissing her cheek before going out of the front door.

I was about to start the engine when my phone vibrates inside my pocket.

"What does this woman needs this time?" I asked gripping my phone when I saw the name of my ex-girlfriend, Chloe on the screen, I swiped the cancel button and throw it to the passenger seat. I don't have time for her game today. I sighed as I remember what happened yesterday when Sophia saw us in the parking lot. It's actually my intention to kiss Chloe, but seeing her walking out of the mall and towards her car, I pulled and kissed Chloe and made sure that she would see us.

But it just made me annoyed seeing her not affected by what I did, so I immediately pushed Chloe when she's no longer at my sight.

Six days. Six days had passed that I've also been crazy busy in this new project of KI Corporation with  Mr. Giovanni team. It took almost all our time and patience since we started this project.

And it's also been six days sinc

prize and donate them to all the survivors in the whole City, than seeing her like this.

I sighed when I checked my wristwatch and found that it's already eleven-thirty. I stood up and bring the ice gel, but I was about to open the door when I heard her faint voice.

"No. No. Per favore non farlo!" (No. No. Please, don't do this.)

I furrowed my eyebrows when I saw her turning her head from side to side. I immediately run to her side and noticed the beads of sweats forming on her forehead. She's having a nightmare, and she seems scared and anxious.

I get my handkerchief inside my pocket and wiped her sweats.

"Aiuto! Qualcuno mi aiuti per favore!" (Help! Somebody help me please!)

I can't understand what she was talking about, the only word I can understand is 'No'.

"No! Per favore non farlo!" (No, please don't do this!)

She's now crying on her dream and I was about to wake her up when she suddenly speak in english.

"No! I'm begging you, please stop! Don't do this! No!"

I was shocked with her last words. She now stopped from wailing and turned her body to the other side of the bed.

-'She's begging for someone to stop? What was that, what kind of nightmare she had? To whom is she begging to stop?'-

I clenched my jaws while watching her now peacefully sleeping figure.

-'Why is she begging for someone to stop?'-

I sighed and put the blanket up to her waist. I decided to go back inside my room when I was sure she's okay, and took one last glance before closing the door.

But it's already one in the morning but I'm still lying awake in bed with eyes wide open. I can't seem to sleep. My mind was still drifting to the scene earlier. I still can see her terrified face, she's crying on her dream and begging for someone to stop.

"Who are you, Sophia? What happened to you? Was that just a dream?"
