Chapter One


Maxine’s Point of View


I am here walking and running so that I can escape and run away from my home. I don’t want to see them anymore, they lied to me! I thought they’re my real parents and sisters but it’s not. I was adopted when I was 3 years old, I wouldn’t know if I didn’t hear them talking about the past. It hurts, knowing that they hid the truth from me for 16 years! No wonder why they treat me as their pet. Arg!

I was crying while I was running. I couldn’t stop my tears from falling. Where do I go now? I don’t know who my real parents are, I don’t know their names nor where they lived. I am alone now.. I am alone. I hope I dump someone related to me so that I can find my real family. I want to know who and where they are. I want to hug them and feel what it is like to be loved by your parents, which I have never experienced.


Wait, where am I? I don’t know this place, am I lost? Oh my ghad, I’m lost.


I saw a bench not far from me, I walked toward there and sat, I looked around then I cried again. Cry and cry until there’s no tears falling down from my eyes. Oh, it’s raining. What a great day! I don’t have money with me, even clothes to wear. I’m such an idiot, how did I forget about the important things. Arg, should I go back and get money, clothes and food? No! I’m better off dead than to go home and see those liars. I am homeless now. I don’t have any friends here.. Yawn, I’m sleepy. My eyes are getting heavy. I think it is because earlier, I cried too much that made my eyes swollen. The rain is getting heavy and heavy, which makes me wet! Arg it’s cold. Where can I find shelter here? Wooh, I hugged myself because of the cold I am feeling right now. I have to find a shelter before I go to sleep.. I stood and when I was about to walk, I fell down. Damn. Gosh, I feel weak. I forgot that I didn’t eat before I ran away. Damn. Now, I’m hopeless! Please, someone please help me…

Harold’s Point of View


Oh, the rain is getting heavier and heavier. I was driving back to the mansion when the heavy rain fell down and caused traffic on the road. It’s already 7 pm and I’m still here because of the traffic. I will visit my grandsons today, I missed those idiotic guys. I left work at 5 pm but now it is 7 pm. I still can’t get home due to traffic accompanied by heavy rain. My goodness.

I set the radio on to comfort myself from being bored. I also looked out of the window while listening to music until my eyes caught a woman lying down and sleeping on a bench. What the heck is she doing there? Is she not feeling cold? She was already wet because of the rain. Should I wake her up? But what if the traffic went up and the car in front of me slipped forward? Arg, I don’t mind, it’s better to help someone. I got out of the car and went to the women’s place.


“Miss?” I shook her shoulder but she didn’t wake up. So, I did it again. “Hey, Miss!” I did it three times but she still doesn’t wake up.

I repeated it again but nothing happened so I decided to carry her and put her inside of my car. I sat beside her so I could check on her every time I grabbed her seatbelt before coming in. I will take her to the Mansion first, she may need medicine. I think she’s not feeling well, I feel her body a while ago, it feels hot. You got it, she’s sick. Ghad, what happened to this girl? Is she running away from their home? Where’s the parents of this girl? Are they not looking for their child? What might happen to this girl if I’m not the one who finds her?


I looked at her face and I saw her angelic face. She has an angelic face! I didn’t recognize it earlier. I’m sure that my grandsons will be shocked if they see me carrying a young girl later. They might even think that the girl beside me was my girlfriend, and if they think that I will punch their faces, how could they think of me like that! I’m already in my mid 50’s. How can I find a girlfriend from this age? And I couldn’t ever think of having a wife or girlfriend again since the death of my wife. Oh damn, I missed her.


Maxine’s Point of View


“Ouch my head…” I whispered to myself while holding my head.


I opened my eyes and looked around at the room where I was in. My eyes widened when I didn’t recognize this room. I’m not familiar with this room. Where am I? Whose house am I? I have to get up even if my head hurts and leave this house as long as I can and run as fast as I can. What if some bad guys brought me here?


Before I can hold the doorknob, someone opens the door. I was shocked when I saw a guy with messy hair in front of me, he is not alone! He had 4 companions on his back. Omg where am I? Did they kidnap me? Are they kidnappers?! Oh I remember that I fell last night and also I lost consciousness last night when I was about to find a shelter.. Did they– my hands automatically cover my mouth. They kidnapped me! I need to escape but I can’t move huhu I’m scared to death what if they suddenly stab me? Huhu.
