When it was time to sleep, Beauty laid her head on Dylan’s lap, asking any his father.
“He has two weeks to live” he started.
“I’m very sorry about that Dylan. I…”
“It’s okay” he interrupted her.
Beauty was feeling sad about the news already.
“My step mom didn’t care at all. He said he regretted getting married to her. He wished he never married her at first. He wanted me to have his company but my step mom is planning to sell it”
“That’s not right”
“I know right. I have just the perfect plan to get the papers from her” he said.
Beauty adjusted the shirt Dylan was wearing the next morning as he got ready to leave for his father’s mansion.
“Isn’t this shirt expensive?” She asked.
“I don’t have cheap clothes to wear. They won’t notice it” he replied.
“Fine, you don’t need my good luck. You have it already” she said.
He leaned forward and kissed her.
“I’ll need that” he said. Her lips curved into a broad smile.
“You should get going already” she said. He nodded and left.
Tara was ready for school. She tucked in her shirt and adjusted her socks. She checked her phone and stared at the time.
“Where are you Dylan?” She murmured.
Suddenly, she heard her mother’s voice.
“He’s here” she murmured and carried her backpack. She ran downstairs and saw Dylan by the door. Jason was there with her.
She waited for some seconds, watching her mother’s move.
“Why are you here?” She yelled.
“Where did you get that shirt from? The trashcan?” Jason teased.
Dylan rolled his eyes away from Jason and went to his mother.
“Mother?” He called out.
“How much do you want to borrow now? You beggar!”
“What do you want Dylan? You’ve wasted all my money and now, you’re back here” Tara walked in and folded her arms.
“That’s my girl” his mother said softly.
“Tara, I promise to pay you. Right now, I need dad’s company papers”
“Even if I have it at the tip of my finger, I won’t give it to you. Just leave!” She yelled.
“Tara, you have to understand me”
“Mom, make him leave already!” Tara yelled.
“Jason! Show your step brother to the door”
Jason stood up and walked towards Dylan.
“You bastard! You killed your mother and I’m sure about that”
“Nice work sis, for the first time I’m proud of you” Jason said and gave her sister a fist bump. He walked towards Dylan and pushed him out.
“Leave you murderer! Poor thing!” He pushed him out.
“Tara, listen to me. Please!” He yelled as Jason closed the door. Tara angrily threw her bag on the table.
“I so much hate him! Argh!’ she groaned.
“He will never find the papers. Fool!”
Tara watched as her mother left, into her room.
Tara followed her mother into the room. She saw her hiding something inside her wardrobe.
“What papers is he talking about?” She asked like she didn’t know.
“Never mind Tara. Just forget what he said and move on, okay?” She asked.
“Mom, I’m grown up already. You can tell me anything!” She said.
Her mother sighed deeply.
“It’s the company paper. I’m going to sell the company in three days time. We need money to live when your father die. You have to go to school”
“What about Jason? He could help. I mean, he’s a model, right?” She asked.
“Jason is as useless as Dylan. He can’t do anything for this family. You just focus on your education and make me proud”
“Yes mom. I love you” Tara said.
“I love you too” she said and hugged her. Tara fixed her gaze on her mother’s wardrobe.
“Gotcha!” She thought.
Dylan drove back home. He alight from the car and walked into the house.
“Master?” Leo called out. He stopped and stared at Leo.
“Where is she?” He asked.
Beauty was in the swimming pool, swinging her feet in the water. She felt something warm on her cheek and quickly turn her head.
“Baby, you’re back?” She asked.
“Yeah, I am” he replied as he sat beside her.
“I missed you. The house was boring without you” she said.
“Now, I’m back” he said. Her lips curved into a smile as she stared at him.
There was a knock on the door. They turned back and saw Sally.
“You have a call from Jack” she said.
Beauty collected the phone and placed it on her ear. She raised her head, staring at her husband. She knew what Jack wanted to say to her already.
“Hey Jack” she said.
“Beauty? Have you forgotten about my request?” She heard his question. She placed the call on a loudspeaker so Dylan could hear him speaking.
“What request Jack?” She asked.
Jack gave a little laugh.
“Beauty, I’m an easy going man. I want to know who your husband is! You have tonight…”
Dylan nodded at Beauty.
“Fine, I’ll text you a location where to meet” she said.
“Good girl” he replied and disconnected the call. She frowned and stared at the water.
“Are you doing the right thing?” She asked.
“Just flow with it. Let’s get ready” he said and helped her up. Sally collected her phone and watched as they left the swimming pool. She has always wanted to swim in it since she got here but she has to follow Beauty. She sulked and went out of the pool.
Dylan and Beauty got ready to leave already. They were going to meet Jack in a five star hotel.
“How do I look?” Beauty asked, staring at her reflection in the mirror.
“Beautiful” he said and kissed her forehead. She grabbed her phone and purse and head out of the room. They got into a limo and drove off. Sally and Leo drove behind them in a separate car.
“Why can’t we drive with them?” Sally asked.
“Why do you wanna go with them? They are couples, just as we are” Leo teased. Sally slapped his arm.
“We are not a couple,.how silly!” She said.
“What happened at home?” Beauty almost forgot to ask.
“Tara is a crazy actress. Once she’s eighteen, I’ll sign her up and build her career” he said.
“I love that. She’s gonna be a perfect model” Beauty added. That was when Dylan’s phone rang.
“Speaking of the actress herself, she’s calling” he said. Beauty smiled again. He answered the call and placed it on her ear.
“I’ve found the papers Dylan. I’m sorry for insulting you” she said. Dylan gave a mocking smile.
“It’s all an act Tara. Forget it” he replied.
“Thanks Dylan. I just have to figure out a way to get the papers to you. Mom’s gonna sell it in three days. She really don’t care about father” she said.
“If everything ends up bad for you guys, you’ll move in with me” Dylan said.
“What? I’ll move into your mansion?” She yelled softly, checking her door if no one was peeping.
“Uh uh. Get the papers for me. Call me when you do, okay?” He said.
“Yes Dylan” Tara said and disconnected the call.
Beauty leans her head on Dylan’s shoulder as they drove off.
Few minutes later, he was in front of the five star hotel. He already made a reservation for a secret entry and exit. The entrance was cleared, no security guard could be seen. Even the security camera was off. That was too show how powerful he was. He could even bring down the give star hotel with a call.
He didn’t only own modelling industry, he own a lot of other industries.
Beauty got down, she had her sunglasses on.
He held her hand and walked in with her. They got into the elevator and went to the VIP lounge 1.
As they were about to open the door, a call entered Dylan’s phone.
“You go in first, I have to take care of something” he said and walked away. Beauty went in with Sally and Leo.
Jack saw them and stood up.
“VIP room huh? How fancy. Hello to you!” Jack greeted Leo. He thought Leo was Beauty’s husband.
He didn’t even stare at Jack. He just stood quietly.
Beauty sat down, jack also sat down.
“That’s not him. He’ll be here any second” she said.
“Whatever. I just want to see him with my two eyes. I know he must be rich. I want to know what type of rich man will marry someone like you in this condition” he said.
Beauty lowered her gaze, blushing. She wished she could say some words to him but she couldn’t. Sally and Leo just remained silent, acting like they didn’t even exist.
“Does it matter?” Dylan walked in, asking the obvious question. Jack heard his voice and turned his head. He turned and saw Dylan.
“And you are?” Jack asked as he stood up.
“Hello Jack, I’m Dylan, King…” He said. He didn’t have to complete the words. He stretched his hands out for a handshake.
Oh jeez… Can’t wait to see the look on his face?
