SCARLET

I was almost ready to head, but I felt like my throat dried up, so I walked through the suite's minibar. To my satisfaction, the liquor cabinet had a full range of beverages, and it had my favorite bottle of Chateau Lafite. I grabbed the bottle then poured myself a glass.

I shut my eyes and took my first sip of the wine's heaven and earthy taste. I ran my tongue on my lower lip as the bitter-sweet liquid ran through my throat. I was pretty much having 'me' time when the door suddenly glided open and the sexiest man I know marched into the room.

Luke came back, and my precious glass of wine splattered on the rug and the glass shattered into pieces. It's like he brought a storm with him wearing a furious expression.

"Don't you ever knock?" I bent down and picked up broken pieces of glass.

"This is my suite. Get up there, " he ordered.

What? I even walked around naked earlier, used his bathroom, and he now was saying this was his personal space? No wonder everything was provided. I shouldn't have come here if I knew. I ignored him and continued picking up the mess.

"I said, get up!" he bellowed. Luke's grasped my arm and hauled me up. He dragged me aside. "Do not ever kneel like that." His gray eyes peered at me.

I wasn't able to respond. I was losing my balance. Luke almost dwarfed me with his height. I suddenly felt small in his presence.

"W-why did you come back anyway?"

He let my arm go and walked to the minibar. I noticed he already changed into black Italian bespoke tuxedo with a letter "A" cufflinks on his dress shirt. His dark hair was roughly brushed up. It's like I wanted to run my fingers along his body while inhaling his spicy, sandalwood scent.

What the hell was wrong with me? I should be angry with him for leaving me earlier and for shouting at me as if I was a piece of trash. I utterly lost my damn mind.

Luke grabbed a glass and poured himself the same drink I was having.

"I don't want to appear the bastard son so I came back to pick you up so we could go together to the party like a happy sibling." He drank the wine straight then finished his sentence, "Do you get what I mean?"

I sh

e Scarlet Carter, my daughter. Let's give her a big round of applause."

Oh, my God! This was the surprise he was talking about.

Mom's mouth dropped open when she found me, and her expression was in awe and priceless. She was so beautiful with face blessed with youth. She curled her brunette hair, and she's was wearing a sparkling, emerald evening dress that hugged her curves. The life Thomas had given her suits her well. I sent her the smile of yearning, realizing I did miss her so much.

Luke leaned over my ears and whispered. "Go on, she's waiting, " he urged, offering his arm to me.

"But, Luke… I'm not prepared for this."

"Who is?" he hissed.

"Scar, my dear?" my stepfather called. "Come up here, sweetheart."

Luke rolled his eyes. "Come on, " he pressed and brought my hand to his arm and took me to the stage with quivering knees. A round of applause erupted the whole place as soon as made my grand entrance.

"Hi, Mom."

"My daughter, you are here." Mom immediately caught me around her arms and squeezed me so tight as if there were no tomorrow for both of us. It's been months since she last visited me in Cambridge.

"You are here, this is a surprise." She parted away a little, and cupped my face between her palms and wiped my tears away with her thumb. "I thought you're coming home on Sunday?"

I chuckled between my tears and embraced her again. "Well, surprise. I am here now. Happy Birthday, Mom."
