In a shady alleyway, a group of were busy smoking and drinking. Axel arrived on his motorbike. Hes happily welcomed by his friend Jake.
"Yo, my brother. Its good that you came here. I was about to look for you at your house". "Whats going on?" Axel asked with a deadpan expression."The boss wants you to deliver some goods". He handed him a brown package.
Axel took it and looked down at the package with a complicated expression.
In a private room sat a middle aged woman and a handsome young man. Rosalind looked at the man in front of her with a flattery expression.
On the table was a brown envelope which Rosalind quickly took and started to take out it contents. She saw a picture of a beautiful girl and her eyes widen in shock but she quickly hid it with a flattery smile," Sirs meaning is....." She enquired.
"I want you to choose her for the job. Everything you need to know is already here. Shes the most fit for the task."
Harry spoke. " You do whatever it takes to convince her to accept your proposal." Rosalind nodded" Please don worry Ill get it done as soon as possible".
Without anything to else to say, Harry got up to leave but before he walked out, he warned," Don breath a word about todays meeting to anyone. If not then don blame me for being ruthless".
His sharp gaze send shivers down Rosalinds spine. She quickly replied" Sir needs not worry. I won tell a soul".She assured him with all sincerity.
She still wants to live a long time but the young man in front of him has a captivating face but a devilish heart. Offending him is equal to signing your death warrant.
Reina stood outside Annies school to pick her up.
Annie called out with a happy smile as she run to meet her. Reina saw her running towards her and felt her heart overflow with joy. She opened her arms wide for an embrace. Annie breathed in her sweet jasmine scent and felt at peace.
During her earlier years growing up, their mother was riddled with debt and worked from sunrise to dawn everyday. She was raised by her sister and thus feels a much deeper bond with her. Reina is her sister-mother.
The teacher looked at the heartwarming scene and smiled with worried eyes. Annie is her favorite student because shes not only well behaved but shes also very good with her studies.
"Miss Reina." She called out. Reina greeted her with a smile." Can l talk to you?" She asked.
Reina nodded and told Annie to wait for her before moving away to talk with the teacher. Annie is sick with a heart disease and can do strenuous exercise or itll be fatal for her. Lately, the teachers noticed that shes getting weaker and pants with a little bit of walking. She has cried and begged the teacher not to tell her family because things are very hard at home and she doesn want to add up to the troubles.
The teacher had agreed to please her but shes very worried about her health and had to inform Reina. Reina looked at her sister standing in the distance and tears welled up in her eyes.
Shes just seven but is so sensible that her heart hurt. Growing up, she was never picky or unreasonable. She just accept whatever shes given with a smile. As they walk home chatting and laughing together, Annie looked visibly tired.
Her face was a little pale and her steps were lagging behind. However she didn complain but Reina noticed it. She slowed down her steps, kneeled on the ground and told Annie to get on her back.
Somewhere in S city, a man in black suit reports to an elderly man."Sir we
e very close to finding the young heir. After the wreckage, the heir was apparently rescued by a man but he moved his family to B city. We
e now tracking who this man is".
The old man stood up from his chair and slowly made his way to the window. He dismissed the man with a wave of his hand.
His lone figure stood there looking at the dark night with a melancholic expression.
At the Lyle house. Mother Nova and Reina prepared dinner together.
"What is your brother doing in his room for long. Since he came home and went to his room, he hasn come out. I hope nothing is wrong with him" Mother Nova spoke with a worried look.
"Ill go an check up on him" Reina uttered, Washed her hands and walked away to Axels room.
"Big brother, mother is calling you for dinner" She called out to him and walked into his room to find a shirtless Axel standing in front of the vanity mirror, struggling to apply healing balm on an injury on his back. On the ground are blood soaked cotton swabs.
Reina eyes widen in shock," What happened to you?. How did you get injured"She asked worriedly. "Its nothing serious. Don alert mother about this" Axel replied. His expression nonchalant. "What do you mean it nothing serious?. You
e bleeding. Sit down and let me help you".
Axel nodded and sat down while Reina took charge to help treat his injury. He has a slash wound on the back of his right shoulder. She carefully started to apply first aid.
"What happened?. Who hurt you". She continued to question him.
"It was nothing. Just got into a little fight at work." he said hoarsely. When he winched with pain, Reina lowered her to gently blow on his wound. Hoping to take away some of the pain. Looking at her gentle expression, pouted lips lips through the vanity mirror, Axel looked at her with overflowing love.
After it was done, he put on his shirt and together they walked out to eat as a family. The next day, Reina was doing the laundry when she an a guest.
"Reina. Reina.. Reina". An excited voice called out to her. Reina looked up to find her best friend Julia rushing towards her. She was a beautiful and petite young lady with a blonde hair and exquisite facial features.
" Hey why are you so excited. Calm down and tell me whats happening". said Reina.
Panting, Julia nodded," I just can contain my excitement. I just found a way for you to make so much money that all your hardships will disappear in the blink of an eye".
Seeing her best friend so happy, Reina asked," Are you drunk or sick?"
She stretched out her hand to touch her forehead but Julia slap it away. "Im not sick dummy". She pouted.
"Have you heard of surrogacy?" She asked. Reina nodded with a confused expression. "Well. I found out a rich family is looking for someone to be a surrogate mother in exchange for five million dollars as compensation. FIVE MILLION DOLLARS!!".
She spoke with a lot of enthusiasm as though she could see so much money materialize in front of her.
Reinas eyes widen in shock,"Five million dollars!!". she exclaimed.
"Yes. Five million and all you have to do is get an artificial insemination done to carry the child. Once its born, youll be free to go on with your life without any trouble. Nobody must know about it and everything is confidential. So convenient right.". She spoke with a soft voice.
