LUKE

I'd always known Rebecca for years and our relationship had always been professional. She was my father's lawyer for more than five years and she was one of the people I trust. I couldn't believe I was having a conversation like this with her.

"But you know that you cannot go back right now, right? If what you're doing is for her sake."

I rested my elbows on my knees and shifted my head to her side. "I trust that you can do it with Ryan."

"Ryan and I decided to end this job in two weeks."

"I can't stay here for another two weeks, Rebecca." If I stay, I won't make it on Scarlet's graduation.

"It's because we think it's possible for you to meet him. We are targeting to bring his club down in Cambridge as well."

"Explain."

"We don't want to tell you sooner because we need more time. As we all know, the club in London is for sale. But Velazquez does not solely own the club. Sixty percent is owned by someone else."

He only owned the forty percent, yet he managed to live like shit.

"How did you know all of this?"

"At the casino. It's actually a good opportunity for you."

"Since when did you start doing business?" I couldn't help but chuckle.

"I am a corporate lawyer, Luke." She smiled. "I have to know these things."

"Okay, so what do you propose?"

"Make a bargain."

"Ah what?"

"A bargain, Luke. Instead of coming to him, find the owner of the sixty percent. We'll take care of Velazquez. Till then, you can meet him and make an agreement to sign the papers without knowing your real intention."

"How can I meet the major stakeholder? Wait, hold on." There was something odd. "Why are they suddenly selling the club? You said it had a good reputation."

"They're going to split shares. That's all we know."

That's it? I believed there was something more to it. "Figure it out and tell me where to find this another owner."

"Wait, Luke. You're going to stay here, then?"

"Do I have a choice?"

She looked down on her lap. "I'm sorry."

"Just make sure I'll have the time to attend Scarlet's graduation."

She lifted up her head. "That is up to you then."

"What do you mean?"

"The other owner won't be here until next week."

"What!?" I stood up. I brushed my scalp in frustration. "You know that I fucking hate to wait."

"But he's coming from Edinburgh. She is scheduled to fly here the next Friday, next week."

"Scotland?" I scowled, grinding my teeth. I wasn't used to dealing with other people. I don't wait.

"Yes, sir. Her name is Cameron Brown."

"I don't care about the background. I'm not going to wait here, Rebecca. I'm flying to Cambridge today. Continue what you are doing. I want progress. I hope it's when I come back in a week."

SCARLET

I miss y

the dorm since I had to replenish the supplies too. And I thought I just heard my stomach crumbled.

I took a pitcher of cold water and poured myself a glass. I drank the water straight. I sighed in relief when the water touched my throat.

Luke came back and found me in the kitchen. He changed his clothes to a simple white T-shirt and sweatpants. He was holding a wireless telephone.

"I ordered pizza. I remember that you haven't eaten anything. Why lie something as simple as that?"

I laughed. "Are you implementing your rules on me right now?"

"Depend on how you see it." He grinned as he walked towards me. He wrapped his arms around my waist. "You still didn't tell me what you want for your graduation."

I shrugged. "I can't think of anything I want. Your father provided everything for me."

"Ahh… you must be lucky." He leaned over and softly kissed my mouth. "I miss this, " he murmured between his smiles. "And I want you. I'm still waiting for an answer."

"Answer what?" I asked innocently, blinking my eyes.

"I don't want to play this game anymore, Scarlet. You know what I'm talking about."

"Do I have to answer now?"

He shrugged. "I'll make sure you'll say yes." He kissed my lips again. "By the way…"

He let me go and walked towards the kitchen. He opened a cabinet and found nothing.

"Looks like we have to go the groceries this afternoon. You'll be staying here with me this whole weekend, " he added.

I raised an eyebrow. "I didn't say yes to that." I crossed my arms over my chest.

"You don't have to answer that. You'll come with me in the afternoon. And I won't allow you to leave this evening."

Why? Where am I going? Ah, to the acoustic bar. "Okay, I won't… for now."

"Good, now come here." He came to my side and pulled me against him, and then his mouth hovered over mine.
