“Leanna, I’m glad you are trying to help. But you don’t have to worry. I got everything under control. I’m going to return all your money to you.”
That was fast.
It had only been two days since I decided to invest all my money in the Fay’s business empire. I thought it would take a week before Cain would notice.
My fingers ran across the television screen, caressing his lovely face.
“I miss you . . . ,” I said instead of answering his question.
Cain was taken aback. He was surprised since I rarely said words of love. It was always him who said affectionate words.
He briefly closed his eyes and opened them with a newfound tenderness. His fingers motioned on the screen, caressing my face.
“I miss you too . . .”
. . .
. . .
“Cain, let me do this,” I said after a long silence, “you can’t just expect me not to worry when you say, ‘don’t worry.’ We are a couple now. Your problem is my problem. I don’t want to sit pretty and wait for you, knowing that you’re in a predicament. It doesn’t work that way. From now on, I want you to tell me everything that’s been going on with you,” I said with a serious face, eyes not leaving his.
. . .
. . .
After a moment of silence, Cain subtly lowered his head and covered his eyes with one hand as his body trembled ever so slightly.
“I wish I can be there with you right now and show you how happy and love you made me feel.” His voice was soothing than usual with a tint of helplessness.
“Ahhh . . . What to do . . . I turned out loving you more than what I originally planned,” he mumbled more to himself.
He removed his hand and looked at me with so much love I never knew possible. I didn’t think he could still love me more than he already did.
Is this because I gave it my all?
He would return it to me with so much more?
If so, I don’t mind giving my everything to him.
I was falling.
And falling hard.
There was no safety net. I removed it myself.
This was dangerous.
I know, I might never recover.
“Leanna, thank you,” he said, breaking the short silence. “With your help, we can finally wrap this problem. Give me one more week to settle all of this. By then, I promise to return to your side.”
My eyes closed tight. Just one more week!
Little Pluffy, as soon he spotted Cain, he jumped on the screen, licking it like there was no tomorrow. His way of showing how much he missed him.
I laughed at the cuteness while Cain smirked at the little furball.
After the web call with Leanna, Cain called for his secretary, Cedrick, to come into his office.
The budding warmth on Cain’s face vanished. There wasn’t a single gleam of light coming from his cold eyes. It was so cold as if capable of freezing everything it looked upon.
Cain stared at Cedrick for a long time without speaking while Cedrick’s expressionless poker face cracked as a tendril of dread ran along his spine.
“Allocate Leanna Lee’s money to all businesses the Goldwood’s withdrew from.”
No matter how many years Cedrick had been as Cain Fay’s secretary, Cain’s icy voice still sent chills down to his very bones.
“And . . . Make the necessary preparations. I want Leanna Lee as a member of the board in all of our businesses. Take fifty percent from my shares and transfer it to her name.
Cedrick’s jaw almost dropped on the floor if it hadn’t attached to his bone. He was having a hard time believing that his Boss would give a board position on some foreign stranger and fifty percent from his shares at that! For FREE?!
Cain Fay held most of the shares in all of the Fay’s businesses. If he gave half of it to Leanna Lee, he might as well give half of the Fay’s Empire to her.
Cedrick was rooted on the spot. He was waiting for Cain to say it a second time until the latter gave him a deathly stare.
“Right away,” Cedrick said, suppressing the tremor of his voice as he sauntered out of the office.
As Cedrick dawdled in his office, he was curious as to who this woman was to be able to please Cain Fay into giving her a position in the elusive Fay’s Business Empire.
Many had wanted the shares, but none succeeded. It was not a secret that the major shareholders in the Fay’s Empire were all allocated exclusively to the family only. It was the reason why his Boss gave his own shares to the foreign woman as outsiders couldn’t bought the shares –– no matter the price.
Cedrick stopped in his tracks.
Can it be . . . ?
He dismissed the idea almost instantly.
What he was thinking was the same as believing that the sun would rise in the west.
