"Daddy, mommy bought 100 luxury bags. " "Tell her to buy another 200. I can afford them." "Daddy, mommy wants to divorce you." "NO WAY! I will be back RIGHT NOW." To take revenge on her half-sister, Molan paid 1 billion to get a kiss from her half-sister's fiance, Zhan Beichen. However, as soon as Zhan Beichen saw Molan, he took Molan home and told her that she was his baby's mother. God, did Molan lose all her memory before? What happened between them five years ago? *************** Chapter One ：Chapter 1 "Baby, it's time for you to wake up." On the spacious European-style bed, a woman with exquisite features was sleeping sound, as if in a sweet dream. Her charming red lips were compressed from time to time, making her look extremely pretty. Seeing this, the man chuckled. "When was the last time she slept? Did she realize she'd been kidnapped?" The next moment, he put the pet in his arms on her. "Oh..." Molan felt something ice-cold touching her and finally opened her watery eyes. As soon as she woke up, she saw a handsome young man looking at her with one hand holding his head, and the other hand playing with her curly hair. "Zhan Beichen?" She was not sure. Was the president of LK Group, the most powerful multinational company in Eastern City lying by her side? She often saw his charming face on TV. At this moment, she was more impressed by his air when she looked at him at such a close distance. His straight figure was perfectly revealed with his black shirt. He looked breathtakingly handsome. His eyebrows were as black as ink and his eyes were bright and full of temptation. Even his nose and lips were perfect. After realizing what was going on, Molan quickly lowered her head and looked away. Then, she saw a green pet snake throwing its tongue at her. Immediately, she was stunned. "Baby, don't be afraid. It's just a special way to wake up beautiful women." After putting the snake elsewhere, Zhan Beichen stood up leisurely and unbuttoned his collar. His wheat-colored chest made him look wild and unrestrained. "I heard there was a hot post on the internet recently. A mysterious woman offers one billion yuan to buy a kiss from me. Miss Molan, I have to say that you successfully attracted my attention." Molan sat up and was a little happy. It seemed like he knew that she was the one who posted it. "So, you brought me here to make a deal with me?" The man leaned forward, picking up her smooth chin with his long fingers. "One billion is nothing to me, but I want to know why you did this." There was a flash of intelligence in Molan's bright eyes. "Well, you'll know that after kissing me." Zhan Beichen looked at her with interest. There had never been such a woman in his life. A kiss for an answer seemed like a good deal. "Okay, now, go ahead." Molan was fil
Married to the Bad Boy
Married to the Bad Boy "You're obliged to sleep with me." When Sterling said that I was three seconds away from slapping that smirk of his face, but seeing as we were surrounded by people, I decided not to. "I'm obliged to no such thing." I turned to leave with my champagne glass in my hand when his palm closed around my elbow halting me. To everyone else we must seem like a cute couple talking. But the grip and the glint in his eyes said the complete opposite. "That ring on your finger says otherwise, darling. Aedan Hart never had luck in her life, ever since she was a kid she got the complete opposite for what she wished. So when she wanted to be married to a gentleman, the opposite happened. When she wanted to find love, we was arranged. And when she wanted someone who loved her, she found someone who couldn't stand her presence. *************** I earned the money. He spent it. "Stop that?" his groggy voice groaned as he rolled around in his bed, a queen bed which was a waste of money for just one person. I grabbed the sheets and tugged them down, making his sit up in bed. I could hear his mumbling in the background as I started to open the shutters, he was complaining that the light was hurting him. "How can you be such a bitch so early in the morning." he grumbled. A bitch? Me? Never. Crossing my arms over my chest I turned around staring at the man in the bed wondering if there was a way to murder him and not get arrested. Perhaps I can puncture his lungs and drop him in the middle of the ocean, that way he was going to sink. Or maybe I can make it seem like an accident. His grey eyes narrowed as I continued to stare at him, I was used to the look he was giving me now. His cheeks were a slight pink flush, probably from having the heating on all night, again, wasting my money. "I hardly call one p.m the morning" I said, narrowing my own light hazel eyes to match the steel look he was giving me. Sterling groaned his head disappearing into the pillow as he tugged the blanket back up. I did not sign up to raise this man child. Well....you sort of did said my conscience. "Where were you last night?" I asked, trying to tug the blanket off, except this time he had a strong from. If Sterling thought he was an expert at sneaking in, he wasn't. I wouldn't call him slamming doors, knocking photo frames off the wall and breaking a case exactly 'sneaking in'. Suddenly he sat up, his face only inches from mine as hot breathe fanned over my face. I wrinkled my nose at the smell of alcohol, he didn't brush his teeth before bed. "Why do you care?" and there was that half hearted smirk I wanted to cut off with a blade. "I don't." I replied taking a step back from his stinky breathe "Our parents came home last night and I had to make up an excuse for you." I always had to make an excuse for him. Sterling "tsk"ed me, as he sat up and the covers slipped down his barely dressed body, "Did the great Aedan lie? Oh dear, I guess I'm r

Today it was Liliana's job to pick flowers in the garden. With some difficulty, the girl with a yellowish brown color curly hair walked around because she had to use a stick to support her body.

The woman who helped her when her other family kicked her out of her house. "Liliana!" Hagne called, who followed the blonde girl into the garden not far from her flower shop. "Yes, Auntie," said the girl who had blue eyes. Then she walked towards the middle aged woman. "Today there is an order for flowers but Fella can't deliver it because she has to go. Can you take it?" Hagne said doubtfully. Fella was one of the girls who also worked at the shop. "Of course, just prepare everything, Auntie, I will clean my body first.

This was the first time Liliana had to deliver flowers to a customer. Usually Fella deliver it by motorcycle. Because it was not possible for Liliana to ride a motorcycle considering the condition of her leg, which this time was sprained, so Hagne ordered a taxi. "Liliana, be careful. When you're done you have to come back as soon as possible," Hagne said with a smile. Actually there was a sense of not having the heart to let the girl. But what else could she do, there was no one that she could ask a for. "See you, Auntie." Liliana immediately got into a taxi, assisted by the driver. It...

CEO's Contract Wife
CEO's Contract Wife *************** A thin ray of sunlight shone through a gap between the thick window blinds. Qi Yushi opened her eyes, only to find that her vision was hazy. Not only did she have a splitting headache which seemed to pound her skull relentlessly, her whole body ached so much that she felt like she had been run over by a car. The first thing that she saw as soon as her vision cleared was the thin ray of sunlight on a luxurious carpet and a dark gold wall. What the...Where is this...Am I dreaming... Qi Yushi rubbed her temples as she tried to sit up - only to find herself held back down by an arm that was firmly hooked around her waist. An arm? It was only then did Qi Yushi become aware of the warm body that was tightly pressed to hers - she was momentarily stunned. Realising that something must have happened last night, she gently lifted the quilt with trembling hands - sure enough, the blue and purple marks that were etched all over her body confirmed her worst fears. Memories from the night before began flooding into her mind... Beautiful outfits, people talking, a happening and energetic social gathering. Qi Yushi sat at a corner, for she had too much to drink - suddenly, someone offered to take her to a room to rest. Even though she had wanted to reject the offer, she was too drained to demonstrate any form of resistance - as such, she let herself be taken by that person to the doorstep of a hotel room. That person then told her that he had something to attend to before excusing himself. Left alone at the doorstep, Qi Yushi entered the room, fumbling through the darkness to find the bed - only to realise that there was someone. Just them, a pair of large hands snaked around her waist - her head was spinning as she found herself pressed beneath a man, the searing heat from his hands engulfing her. Their two bodies entangled in a tight embrace, she felt his scorching heat radiating through the flimsy material of his shirt. The man above seemed to be studying her through the faint glow that peeked into the room from the outside. A deep and sonorous voice sounded. “Are you the one who was brought to the door?” Malice seemed to drip from the voice - akin to the lethality of a night poppy. Before Qi Yushi could comprehend his words, which she could hardly manage given her alcohol clouded state of mind, she felt a pair of hot lips envelop hers. Impatient and eager, the same large hand tore off her skirt - the sounds of her fervent protests were entirely contained by his overpowering offensive. As the smell of alcohol drifted throughout the air, she gradually descended into the haze. Half-consciously and half-unconsciously, the pair proceeded to engage in mindless ** - the moment that he entered her, a scream ripped from her throat as she clawed at his shoulders. “It hurts!”

Fred Maklaw, the 32-year-old man barked at his wife, Mina Maklaw. "Excuse me?" She huffed, getting to her feet from the vanity's chair. Mina wasn't as surprised as ever because whether or not she admitted it or affirmed it to be true, she could tell that this was going to happen someday but she didn't expect it to be today. Fred had just burst the door open by pushing it with an audacious force, storming towards her then stopped only a few feet away from her, and just hollered his whole life out at her. He furiously held her by her arm and started to storm out of her room, dragging her roughly with him. "Fred," she cried, "you're hurting me." Fred didn't reck to hearken to her voice which was as equal as infuriating and killing to him. He was only interested in getting her out of his sight, house and mostly his life. He tugged her all the way down the stairs then took quick steps to the door in which one step was equal to three of her steps so she had to run to catch up. "You know you need to calm down and stop this drama." Mina spoke convincingly. Desperation was evident in her deep voice. She was as desperate as ever to stop him from throwing her out of the house. The doors were already open widely so he easily pulled her forward and pushed her out of his mansion. Mina lost her balance and harshly fell to the floor of the vestibule. With her so-called smartness, she was quick enough to prevent her forehead from smashing to the floor. Her elbows and knees got bruised due to the friction on sliding against the floor. She sharply turned her head to Fred. She had flown off the handle already and wasn't going with her pretence nature this time. Getting to her feet, her body ached like hell from Fred's roughness on her. "How dare you throw me out of 'my house'?!" She roared, advancing towards Fred that was boiling and mentally calculating what was the next step to take. "You're so unbelievable. Your house?" He spat. A vein popped on his neck as his chest rose and fell to further express his furiousness, as well as the intense crumpling of his forehead. "No matter how much you might or might not hate me, the sweetest part of it all is that I'm still your legally married wife." Mina permitted a shit-eating smirk to play on her lips, jamming her hands to her hips. "Why the fuck are you sending me out
Super Wife's Three Babies
Super Wife's Three Babies *************** By the time Olivia Maxwell regained consciousness, it was the morning after. She walked along the main road in a daze, and a single, scorching hot tear rolled down her face unexpectedly. Yesterday was her birthday. At first, she was going to meet up with her fiancé, Hugo Gray, for a date. However, she unexpectedly ran into him while he was cheating on her with her stepsister. At that moment, the only thought that ran through her mind wasn’t to make a scene and question them with the only remaining shred of dignity she had left. She decided instead to give them a taste of their own medicine—an eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth. I’m going to get my revenge! I’m going to make them pay for this dearly! In the beginning, she thought that everything had come to an end with that. However, she realized two months later that she was pregnant! Olivia felt cold all over as she stared at her stepsister standing in front of her. At the same time, her stepsister’s mocking expression stabbed into her heart painfully. Anna Maxwell pretended to be shocked. “Olivia, weren’t you still dating Hugo two months ago? How could you do something like this to him?” Olivia stared at Anna and sneered, “Aren’t you ashamed of what you did? Besides, whatever happens between Hugo and I is none of your business!” At the time, she only said that she wanted to break up and did not say anything about their disgusting cheating to preserve their dignity. However, she did not expect Anna to act so shamelessly. How dare she mention the events from back then?! A flash of guilt flitted across Anna’s eyes. She had not expected Olivia to bring up the truth in front of their father right now. Thus, she pointed at Olivia and raised her voice, “Don’t talk nonsense! That night, you stayed out all night. Then, you broke up with Hugo the very next day. The only reason I agreed to take your place and become Hugo’s fiancée is for the sake of a successful union between our families. Even if you don’t understand my pain, you shouldn’t wrong me by saying such words!” As she spoke, her tears fell freely down her face. Olivia’s stepmother, Amy Davis, had been sitting by the side. Just then, she hugged Anna and said in displeasure, “Olivia, you shouldn’t speak without evidence! You might not care for your own reputation, but your sister is still young. How is she going to hold her head up in society if you ruin her reputation?!” Olivia was so mad that she burst out laughing, “I saw the two of them together myself; do I need to obtain the surveillance footage for you?” Slap. As soon as the words came out of her mouth, she felt a slap hitting her hard across the face. It left half her face feeling numb from the force. Clutching at her cheek, she looked toward the man who hit her in disbelief. “Dad, why did you hit me?” “Your sister sacrificed so much for this family! On the other hand, look at you! How dare you shame your sister? You’ve embarrassed

Special Bond & Special Love
Special Bond & Special Love *************** At a police station in Wingston City, the young policewoman looked sympathetically at Erin Harvey, who kept fiddling with her fingers while sitting on the chair, and asked, “It’s been five days, Captain. We’ve called all of Erin’s relatives, but none of them is willing to adopt her. What do you think we should do now?” “What else can we do? Send her to the orphanage then.” Captain Wilkins crouched in front of Erin. “Erin, I’ll send you to the orphanage tomorrow, alright?” Erin gently pressed her thin lips together, her long eyelashes drooping as though she didn’t hear what he said at all. Captain Wilkins gave a long sigh. “Why do you think no one is willing to take in such an adorable child—” Before he could finish his sentence, he heard a clatter of heavy footsteps approaching from the police station’s door. Startled, he stood up and looked at the door. “Here, Young Master Arthur.” Captain Wilkins first saw the person who spoke, and his jaw dropped in shock at the sight of the man. What kind of a terrific figure is this? Our Chief even greeted him in person! Then, an emotionless gaze that seemed to contain a sharpness that could destroy everything shifted to Captain Wilkins, causing the latter’s heart to jump. When he looked in the direction of the gaze, he immediately let out a gasp. The man heading his way was tall and lean. Dressed in light-colored casual wear, he put his hands in his pockets while pressing his clean, thin lips into a straight line. His face—the features of which were so pronounced as if God carved them himself—had an inherent coolness about it and the aristocratic vibes he gave off made people avoid his gaze. Captain Wilkins recognized this man at a glance. He was Arthur Harrison, the most esteemed third young master of the Harrison Family—the leading family of the Four Greatest Families of Wingston City—whom Old Mr. Harrison had publicly announced to be the future heir to the Harrison Group. But what is he doing here? thought Captain Wilkins to himself. Noticing that Arthur was coming his way, Captain Wilkins quickly stepped aside. Arthur walked straight up to Erin before drawing his hand out of his trouser pocket. Then, he put out a long, thin finger and gently lifted Erin’s little chin, staring expressionlessly at her exquisite doll-like face with cold, deep eyes. “Do you want to come with me?” Captain Wilkins was speechless. Erin hadn’t spoken a word for five days since the car accident. She stared at Arthur; her eyes were as dark as two gemstones that hadn’t been tainted by worldliness. Arthur frowned. “You’re not willing?” Erin lowered her excessively long eyelashes without saying a word. Then, she slowly raised her hand and gently held the slightly icy finger that Arthur put on her chin. Arthur narrowed his eyes before his long arm stretched out and hooked around Erin’s dainty body. Tucking her under his arm, he then strode out of the police station. Stu

I whispered embarrassed as I excused myself and hurried down Collins street in the city trying not to bump into all the business men at this hour. Did they have to look so grumpy and terrifying? "I swear it was him Iv, just check it out," whispered Rose clutching my arm. I scoffed where did she even hear that from. James and I had been together for nearly four years now and now she tells me she thinks he's been cheating on me the whole time. The whole four years without me knowing? Defintiely not. That was just absurd I tell you! "Look Rose, You have the wrong person. Why would James cheat on me? We've been together for four years in a week's time.

She was the same when I told her about her crush not being the best, she hated me for it but when she found out about it and that it was true, she realised how love could make you. I mean we've been together, this feeling was love right? "Fine," I muttered. Taking out my phone I sent James a quick text. Where are you? xxIvy Rose smiled and tapped her leg impatiently like she does when she gets nervous. My phone vibrated and I smiled reading the message. See I knew James would never do such a thing.

Hey Girl, You Deserve The World
Hey Girl, You Deserve The World “Xie Tiansheng, what is marriage to you? Who am I to you?” “Xia Muqing, stop embarrassing yourself, you should know better that you're nothing to me!!! I wouldn't have married you if not for the sake of the Xie family!” “Alright! Is that what you wanted? You wanted a divorce, Xie Tiansheng? I will grant you your wish......” Xia Muqing forced herself to speak with a steely voice, but her voice came out trembling. “Very well! I'll see you tomorrow at 9 o'clock in the morning in front of the Civil Affairs Bureau.” *************** “Let's get a divorce!” Xie Tiansheng said casually as he ground out the cigarette on the ashtray. He crossed his legs and rested lazily on the sofa. He did not even bother to look at his wife, Xia Muqing whose face has ashened like all the blood has been drained from her face with her lips pursed tightly. With nothing on his sexy and muscular body but a simple white towel wrapped around his lower body, a disgusting stench permeated and lingered around the air inside the room...... That stench was coming from the semen that had leaked onto the sheets of the messy bed. However, the woman that was on the receiving end of said semen was not Xia Muqing! She did not know who was the other woman that was on the bed. But Xia Muqing's eyes were met with such a revolting scene as she entered Xie Tiansheng's office to bring him some snacks. “Who is she?” Xia Muqing questioned Xie Tiansheng with a trembling voice. Xie Tiansheng slowly lifted his gaze and met with Xia Muqing's face at long last. That man's eyes were pensive as he spoke in a dissatisfied tone. “It doesn't matter who she is. What matters the most is that we are getting a divorce!” Muqing's grip tightened around the reusable bag in her hand and was stunned for a moment. Tears welled up in her eyes. “Xie Tiansheng, what is marriage to you? Who am I to you?” “Xia Muqing, stop embarrassing yourself, you should know better that you're nothing to me!!! I wouldn't have married you if not for the sake of the Xie family!” So, the only reason he married me was because he wanted to utilize my family's influence to assist his own family? Is that why he's reluctant to caress my body even after 2 years of marriage?! That's why he wanted our marriage to be held privately without being known to the public. Muqing's hands were shaking as she could not contain her tears from falling continuously...... “All right! Is that what you wanted? You wanted a divorce, Xie Tiansheng? I will grant you your wish......” Xia Muqing forced herself to speak with a steely voice, but her voice came out trembling. Xie Tiansheng was astounded by her alacrity. He curled his sexy lips the next second and said, “Very well! I'll see you tomorrow at 9 o'clock in the morning in front of the Civil Affairs Bureau.” “I'll see you then!” Xia Muqing's fists tightened. She turned around and stepped out of the office immediately. There was absolutely not a chance that she
Fallen From Grace
Fallen From Grace book online reading Atlanta never expected to fall into those eyes that were bluer than her skies, or those arms that were warmer than the sun, but she did. She had been promised to Cael, but it was Flynt that she wanted. She knew the instant that their eyes met for that brief moment, before he morphed into his true form, that he had stolen her heart. Even as a demon, he was beautiful but he could never be hers. It was forbidden for a Dark Seraphim to have any association with the shamed Demons of Terra. For Flynt, luring a woman, any woman, was a game that he always won. It was in his nature. He was, after all, an incubus. Beauty had never been something he had considered, until he saw Atlanta. Her her. He ached for her. But he was a Demon and it was forbidden for a Demon to have any association with the shamed Dark Seraphim of Azure. *************** Sighing, Atlanta stretched her beautiful black wings and folded her arms over her chest. “Don’t pout. You look like a spoiled child, rather than a woman who has come of age. Are you coming or should I tell him that you’re being a brat?” Tyson said. “I don’t pout! Why do I even have to go, anyway? Father never expects me to attend his dinners.” Atlanta had been summoned, for the first time ever, by her Father, Azazel, the ruler of Azure. “You do pout and you have to go because he said you do. You’re the closest thing he has to a daughter, Atlanta, and sometimes a father will want to spend time with his daughter.” “But Ty…” “Ty, nothing. It's not my decision but as your eldest and most favourite brother, I’m telling you that you have to go.” Tyson was twenty-six and older than Atlanta by three years. Reminding her of that was one of his most favourite things to do and it was becoming tedious, to say the least. “Unfortunately for me, you’re my only brother,” she mumbled. “Can I at least change, first? Whenever he sees me in human clothing, he gives me nothing but scowls.” “There’s no time. I don’t know why you don’t just wear your robes like the rest of us do. They're so attractive." He was full of sarcasm as he swirled and fluttered his lashes. "Now, come on, squirt, and don’t dawdle.”

Ella starts to fall in love with him and decides it's time to spill the beans. Join this rollercoaster and find where it's heading. *************** Ella's pov: My name is Ella Adeoye. So I was told. I ran out of the orphanage home to fend for myself. I was tired of being held in that surrounding for too long. I was told by one of the workers here at the orphanage home, that I was dropped at the doorstep. No one saw who dropped me. All they saw was my name and date of birth boldly sewn on my blanket used to wrap me. Every day I think about what I did to make that person hate me so much so as to drop me by the doorstep at night. I feel so much hatred towards that person probably my mum or dad if I had any and I made a decision in my heart that I wasn't going to attach myself to someone to a point that it will be a problem for me to leave. It will all just be fun and nothing attached. I have been planning an escape ever since I turned seventeen. I hated this place so much. It was like someone was being choked. Different kids with different attitudes here and there. Most times, I usually kept to myself. I had just one friend who was Mrs. Pat who worked here. She was the one who found me at the doorstep on her way home from work. No one knew of my escape plan, not even Mrs. Pat I feel so bad because I couldn't tell her but it was for the best. I had mastered the in and out of the orphanage home because I grew up there. I finally decided to use the route cleaners use to take out dirt for disposal as my escape path. Few nights to my escape day, I sneaked in a cleaners uniform and a nose mask from the store. I needed to be free, I wanted to know what was behind these walls and what the world had in store for me. It was a cold morning, with the regular activities at the orphanage home taking place. After breakfast, I sneaked into the cleaner's closet after they had all changed and went to their duty posts. I changed into the uniform which fitted perfectly. It was like an angel made it specially for me. I made it through the back door, ran for my life and never looked back till I found my way to a park. I took off the cloth and left the one I was wearing underneath. I counted the money I stole from Mrs. Pat's purse which was a total sum of ten thousand naira. The instance I boarded the bus to Lagos, I knew my life was about to change but most e
The Legal Wife
The Legal Wife Ashin Johnstone has never loved someone as much as she loved her husband, Kristoff Washington. She had spent most of her life crushing hard on him and was really elated that she finally married him in a pragmatic marriage. But she knew that he doesn't love her, not the way she wanted him to. She knew that he will never love her like a woman. He will never want her like the way she desires him. As painful as it is, she has learned to understand him and his feelings for her. She was trying to be contented with her life with him. She was trying to be contented with her relationship with him. After all, she is the legal wife. Everyone who would want him would go through her first because she's recognized one. She's the lawful wife. *************** ASHANTI I woke with the alarm clock blasting on my bedside table. I immediately sat up and rubbed my eyes with the back of my hand. I looked at the watch and it’s already six in the morning—an hour earlier than the usual time I wake up. I walked down to the kitchen to cook breakfast. I am not really the best person to cook but I’m trying to practice. At least for my husband and I… I prepared what I needed for the fried rice and the sides. I know what to do. I’ve watched several cooking shoes lately and I believe I am going to really get better at this. I just need practice, like what Lora, our helper, and my mom tell me all the time. “Practice never betrays you,” is what my mother has been telling me. Even when I was just starting to design clothes, it has been my motto. No one was born a genius or skillful, anyway. I was on the final egg—the last egg standing because I’ve burned them all—when I heard footsteps coming down the stairs. I looked behind me and saw Kristoff, walking down with his black three-piece Armani suit. His hair is sort of styled in a messy way but he still looks more handsome than ever. His tall stature had been so helpful with his charisma but I would say that he’s cold aura is his signature asset. He looked at me and smiled a little. His eyes have always been so intense, like he’s always thinking about melting whoever or whatever his gaze lands on. “Done cooking?” he asked as he looked at the pan. I bit my lip and shut my eyes. He shouldn’t see this, alright. He shouldn’t see that the egg looked like it was cooked in the lava of a volcano because of its black color. I heard him snort. I pouted but I didn’t show him. I don’t want him to know that I am disappointed at how he looked at my cooking. “Remind me to not let you step into the kitchen next time, Ashanti,” he said in almost a chuckle. “You are best when you design clothes. Just stay like that.” This time, I looked at him with a serious gaze. He smiled and shrugged before taking the fried rice and the eggs towards the dining table. He prepared the table while I watched him. He looked like he was having fun while fixing the table. Well, it should be fun fixing my failed cooking, I guess. I
Nine Kids & One Night
Nine Kids & One Night *************** Grace Thompson forced her eyes open. Seeing the face of the person lying next to her, she nearly screamed out in fright. It was Christopher Knight—the future head of the Knight Group and the campus idol of Imperial University… At that moment, snippets of memories from last night flooded into her mind. It seemed like she had gotten drunk last night and then ran into Mr. McDreamy here. Oh, my God! What on earth have I done? If those ardent fans of his find out about this, my life is going to be miserable! Thus, she hurriedly sneaked out of the room while the other party was still sleeping… However, as soon as she stepped out the door, a large palm covered her nose and her mouth. After that, she lost consciousness. By the time she woke up again, she found herself on a yacht. In front of her sat the treasured daughter of the Johnson Group, Bethany Johnson—also known as the campus belle of Imperial University. Upon seeing her, Grace couldn’t help developing an ominous feeling in her heart. In the next moment, her hair was fiercely yanked upward. “Ow!” She was forced to lift her head and cried out in pain, “Bethany, what are you doing? I’ve never offended you, so why did you kidnap me?!” “Never offended me?” Bethany’s beautiful face was twisted with jealousy. “Grace Thompson, don’t you know that Christopher is mine? How dare you touch him?! Why don’t you take a look at that face of yours!” After taking great pains and planning this for so long, she had finally found a chance to approach Christopher today. But it was all snatched away by this ugly b*tch! If it wasn’t for her, I would have successfully gotten with Christopher! “I—” Then, Grace recalled something, and her face burned red. “B*tch!” Bethany felt an intense hatred rising up in her at the sight of Grace’s embarrassed expression. “Throw her off the yacht!” Staring into the churning waters of the river next to the bed, Grace’s complexion turned pale. “Bethany! This is an accident! Christopher and I—” “You are not worthy of calling Christopher by his name!” Bethany’s sense of reason was completely consumed by the flames of jealousy. Thus, she instructed her bodyguard, “Move it!” “Yes, Miss Johnson.” “Bethany, you can’t do this! Let me go—ah!” With a large splash, Grace was thrown into the river. Looking at the surging river, the corners of Bethany’s mouth curled up with the satisfaction of getting her revenge. This is the Lucent River, famous for its raging currents! Grace Thompson, you did this to yourself! How dare you snatch everything that should have been mine?! … Nine months later, in an inconspicuous private residence located at the northernmost side of an economically-inaccessible village deep in the mountains, Grace lay on a shabby wooden bed. She watched, pale-faced, as the babies by her side were taken away, one by one, while she remained helpless. “Children… My children—ah!” “Hurry up; there’s another baby!” The eyes of Natasha

Billionaire's Replaced Bride Clutching her jaw, he blurted in a venomous tone, “I don't really remain a gentleman anymore nor you should expect Me to remain one after backstabbing me. Before you got challenging me, you should have been ready to learn your limits because I have none. You put me in this game and now it's my turn to show you how it's being played." ☘☘ Aaron Knight A handsome young man with graceful physical features and a self-made business tycoon who was happily getting married to whom he loved wholeheartedly. Alina Marshall An orphan who got raised in the household of her paternal uncle. She loved them to the core and was grateful to them for giving her shelter though they were always rude to her. Something beyond her imagination happened and got her messed with the person, she shouldn't have... *************** Alina Marshall Alina is a simple, innocent, and beautiful girl who has long, straight, black hair, big eyes, and rose petal lips. She is an orphan and doesn't remember much about her birth parents. She grew up in the household of her paternal uncle who was quite rich. Though in that household Alina was never treated nicely, still she was grateful to them as they gave her shelter at least. With a thought that without them, she would have been brought up in an orphanage or in the worse case might be on the road. She didn't know that all the wealth including the mansion was her father's actually. Alina has a same-aged cousin, Evana Marshall who is no different from her family. She also dislikes Alina though Alina always tries to support her in any means, she can. From the beginning of her childhood days, she couldn't get to have them treated her somewhat in a good manner. Alina always kept trying to get on the good terms with them by obeying their every single word only to get herself stumbling into worse situations. She and Evana were in the same class and Evana used to make her do the all home works and all of her as she used to remain busy with her friends, hanging out till she completed her academic life and started modeling. Evana was indeed beautiful but from within she was of not so good personality. But in front of people, she could facade like a great actress to get their attention if she wanted... After completing her course in fashion designing when Alina gathering some courage, asked for her uncle's permission to open a boutique shop to her utter surprise, he gave his consent. She thought her uncle would ask her to join him in business which she wanted the least for some reason. She wanted to do something on her own. And when he really didn't ask her to join him rather let her do whatever she wanted without any further question, she couldn't be more grateful but little did she know there was something her uncle had been hiding all along. Alina, with her all finances she saved from her scholarships from the very beginning, opened a small boutique shop and tomorrow was supposed to be the opening da
One Night, One Day, One Year, One Lifetime
Chapter 13 After Story - This Love Transcends Time and Space
One Night, One Day, One Year, One Lifetime That night, I listened to the hymns till dawn, not for serenity, but to seek a silver of your soul; That month, I flipped through all the scriptures, not for enlightenment, but to touch the pages where your fingers once lingered; That year, I knelt on the grounds, my head embracing the dusts, not to pay obeisance to the Gods, but to feel the warmth you left behind; That life, I wandered through ten thousand great mountains, not in search for an afterlife, but to cross paths with you ｨC *************** 13 October. Sunny. At dusk, rain fell from the skies, cold water stretching across the roads. When it was six o’clock, I wrapped a shawl around my shoulders and left my house to welcome my Gao Fei home. Were it not for his displeasure, I might have already been at the airport awaiting his arrival at this moment in time. Gao Fei’s one week of the business trip was already a great torment for me to endure, so how could I tolerate the fact that I would not be the first person he would see upon touchdown? But in his call, he coldly forbade me to do so. For three days, he had not answered any of my calls. Without a choice, I could only compromise with his wishes. At seven o’clock sharp, Gao Fei finally appeared within my sight, wearing the cream-coloured overcoat which I had prepared for him. I was as excited as a little bird as I ran towards him, shouting his name, ‘Gao Fei, Gao Fei’, dying to be enveloped within the warmth of his embrace. As he heard my voice, he raised his head. He had not expected me to be waiting for him at the doorstep, and his eyes immediately cooled, watching as I ran towards him. He shifted, easily evading my hug, his disdain palpable. Perhaps, in my entire life, I would never be able to obtain a fraction of warmth from him, just like a lost bird, never to return to the warmth of its nest. Though I could clearly discern Gao Fei’s unhappiness, I was unwilling to draw attention to it. Moreover, I felt that his reaction was not considered overboard, so I continued to smile, remaining unbashful as I clung onto him, spilling my heart out. ‘Gao Fei, I missed you.’ It was impossible to not miss him, for he was the only man I have ever loved in my entire life. The body which I hugged remained rigid in my arms. Even though Gao Fei was tall and wrapped securely in layers of clothes, not a silver of his warmth was given to me. Instead, he moved, raising his hands as he pushed me away. His face remained expressionless as he said, ‘Let’s go home!’ I continued to beam as I nodded, because of his word ‘home’. I knew that this was just a careless, unintentional word on his part, but I was long accustomed to deliberately misinterpreting the meaning behind his words, spinning them in a favourable, comforting light, so my heart still warmed. Go home. Gao Fei, let’s go home. From the bathroom was the sound of splashing water. I buried my head as I continued to unpack Gao Fei’s luggage. I
Returning from the Dead: His Secret Lover
Returning from the Dead: His Secret Lover “She's pregnant with your baby! How dare you say something like that!” “The baby? You know what, the baby doesn't deserve to come to this world!” *************** “Sebastian is coming back?” The eight-months pregnant Sasha was folding the newly bought onesies in the nursery when she heard the housemaids' conversation. He's coming back? Is it because my due date is approaching? Her heart was bursting with joy until her hands trembled. Although Sebastian was the baby's father, she had only met him once on their wedding night. He never showed up after that. With watery eyes, she caressed her pregnant belly. “Oh, my baby, I know your daddy doesn't like me, but it's okay. I will be happy as long as he's here to witness your birth.” A smile of joy and satisfaction lit up her face. Two days later, Sebastian was finally back after disappearing for ten months. When Sasha heard the news, she held her baby bump while carefully trotting out of her bedroom to meet him. As she looked down from the top of the stairs, her face turned ashen. Apart from the man whom she missed a lot, she saw a woman standing next to him in the living room. “Sebastian, I asked you to come back to take care of Sasha. Why did you bring this woman back?” “Don't you know why? I told you I have nothing to do with this marriage. The woman I want to marry is Xandra, and she's standing next to me right now.” In his black coat, Sebastian's chiseled face held a frosty expression. The man exuded a cold aura while he levelled his father's stare. Frederick was left fuming at his son's words. “Don't you know Sasha's due date is near? She's pregnant with your baby! How dare you say something like that!” “Huh,” he snorted, “The baby? She wouldn't be pregnant if you hadn't spiked my drink on my wedding night. You know what, the baby doesn't deserve to come to this world!” The living room fell into a dead silence. Standing by the staircase, Sasha felt a dull pain from within her chest; his words pierced through her heart, tearing it to smithereens. At that instant, she experienced a temporary blackout of vision while the surrounding noises faded away. How could he say something like that! My baby... My baby is unwelcomed... Soon she felt dizzy and lightheaded. “Oh, no! Madam! Madam, you're bleeding!” “What?” At that instant, the housemaid's shouts rang out in the Hayes Residence.

A token of pride to whoever owned it. An industrial empire that stole selfishly in the name of success. A giant that overshadowed its competitors’ comparatively smaller establishments under the risen sun. And everyone knew whose devilish strategies it came from… From the topmost loft of the building stood a man with a glass of red wine in his hand. He was smirking; not at the taste of the fine wine but at the misery of his rivals. “Master Sean, everything happens at your will.” “I know. And that makes everything else boring.” “Seventy-two percent of the overall economic businesses of the world are already under your name and only the remaining twenty-eight percent are still government property. Shouldn’t we acquire all of it?” A dart arrow swished through the air and landed at the heart of the dart board. “I don’t think we should. It will be no fun if I gain all of it. Let them grow it and if they make it, I will cut them again,” he smiled at the thought of his game plan. Sean Herald. He’s the owner of Herald Monopolies of Businesses and of most businesses in the world; all sorts of transportation, entertainment companies, real estates, banks, technological and research facilities, academic institutions, and many more to specify. Even the mafia was within his authoritarian powers. No one ever imagined that the commoner he used to be would rise as the richest person in the world from the rags of his sweets processing start-up. His multitrillion mercantile business started from his interest in a board game called Monopoly. But the game that he used to play in a little rectangular box became a real life gamble. He grew bakeries, confectioneries, and pastry institutions until his monopoly business dominated the top level for an uncontested seventeen years up present. He called his strategy Monopoly Tricks and he was the zero-sum player. He bought businesses that were nearly bankrupt and revived them. In most cases, he himself would move secretly to drive other businesses to bankruptcy and tempt them to sell it to him no matter how low his bargain was. A huge Monopoly board game was placed at the heart of his workplace. It was his real wealth map. It was a strategy that made him devilishly powerful. But although his reputation instilled fears to most, his monopolized businesses were managed by grateful and loyal secretaries.

Royal Engagement: The Royals Book III Daniel I was used to being on my own, I always got what I wanted, and then I met her. My Little American Annie broke my cold exterior and I fell in love with her. Everything is exactly as I planned. I'm next in line for the crown, I have a beautiful woman by my side, and come next spring, I'll be a father to two little ones. It seems as if everything is perfect, but I know better.

The Palace is filled with snakes in the grass. I know I have to be careful, but I won't let them drive me away. Not anymore. I'm going to be the next Queen, beside the love of my life. And no one is going to stand in my way. *************** Annie I remember the first time I was forced to mingle with the members of the Royal Court I was beyond awkward and uncoordinated. I practically hid behind Daniel the entire time, feeling more than out of place, like I was a rock, polished up and set to be surrounded by precious jewels. Now though, not only do I feel like I belong, I know I'm revered. If someone told me that I would be the next Queen of Verilia a few months ago, I would tell them they need to screw their head on straight. Now, I not only believe it, but I feel like I deserve it, like it's a title that the Verilian people would benefit from me having. Where I would once only speak when spoken to, now I walk up to nobles, starting conversations, speaking about anything and everything from politics, to the latest movies with nothing but the upmost confidence. Where I would once take cover behind my fake husband, I now stand beside him, proudly, with the knowledge that he loves me, and that I belong. All this being said, I'm still not a huge fan of parties, but I can now say that it isn't because I feel out of place, it's simply because I don't care for all the interactions. It can be tiring, and there's only so many times I can answer the same questions.

You'll Fall for Me, Today or Tomorrow *************** Splash! He splashed Clarissa's feverish body with cold water, waking her up from a moment of stupor. She looked up to see the man whom she had latched on to standing right in front of her. The man removed his coat and tossed it to the ground. Looking tall and handsome, he was dressed in a white shirt and a pair of black suit pants. He had chiseled features like those of a male model, and his eyes especially looked astute and callous. “Sober now?” His voice was extremely cold and stern. “I'm sorry,” Clarissa said in embarrassment. She had just gotten off the plane to visit her mother whom she hadn't seen for years. Yet never in her wildest dream did she expect her mother to drug and deliver her to the bed of a perverted old man. Confused and delirious, she had grabbed hold of a stranger. If not for this fine gentleman, she wouldn't dare to imagine what would become of her now. Clarissa huddled in the bathtub and lowered her head to hide the pain in her eyes, not realizing how seductive she looked with her dress clinging damply to her skin. Matthew squinted his eyes. Is she really not trying to seduce me? “Mr. Tyson.” Donnie's voice sounded at the bathroom door. “The doctor and the clothes are here.” “Thank you,” Clarissa piped up as she lifted her head. “I'm so sorry for the trouble.” There was no need for explanation because they were only strangers to each other. She had noticed the man's inquisitive and derisive gaze, reckoning that he would only misunderstand her for having an ulterior motive if she were to explain herself. A female doctor came in just as Matthew was about to leave the bathroom. She put the clothes aside and gave Clarissa a jab before leaving shortly after. Outside, the room was already empty by the time Clarissa had changed her clothes and trudged out of the bathroom. Hah, what was I thinking? After a night of rest at the hotel, she was reluctant to go back to the Garretts', but she had no other choice as she needed to retrieve her belongings. “You still have the audacity to come back?” Her arrival immediately interrupted the peaceful atmosphere in the living room.
Medical Master's World
Medical Master's World *************** “Heart rate is only at 45. The patient's vital organs are weakening.” “His breathing rate is decreasing. Increase the amount of oxygen!” “Get the pacemaker ready!” ... “It's over. Get ready to inform his family.” At this very moment, several top doctors gathered around an operating table inside an emergency room at Donghai City's First Public Hospital. Cold sweat beaded on their foreheads as they gazed upon the dying patient in front of them. The man on the operating table was Zhu Sandao, also known as Old Man Zhu. Being the best in Donghai, he was a formidable character and was practically like a royal. If such a figure were to die on these doctors' operating table, they could kiss their jobs goodbye. “What should we do? He's experiencing acute left ventricular failure and cardiogenic shock. He's having difficulty breathing. There's no way to save him.” “We won't make it even if we perform the surgery now. The opportunity has passed. We can't bring him back anymore.” “How about we operate on him right now!?” “No! It's too late for that. If the patient dies on the operating table, it'd be medical malpractice on our part. How many of you think you can handle the fury from the Zhu family'?” The doctors fell silent. These were all Donghai City's renowned physicians, but they were now helpless. First, acute left ventricular failure was a complicated disease that was very difficult to treat. Secondly, the illness came so suddenly that the patient arrived too late. Third, Old Man Zhu was just too old. At such an advanced age, even having appendicitis surgery would be risky, let alone heart surgery? They had tried their best. That was all they could say. Even the prominent Old Man Zhu couldn't escape death. The doctors sighed. At this point, they could only endure the wrath that is coming their way from the Zhu family. They opened the operating room doors and delivered the news. “Mr. Zhu, we've tried our best. Old Man Zhu is not going to make it.”
Maybe & Definitely: Her Sweet Surprise
Maybe & Definitely: Her Sweet Surprise *************** “Let’s get divorced.” Arielle Grace stared at the handsome and flawless man who had women going crazy over him sitting across from her, her heart heavy and bleak. Ziven Meyer, the most desirable man in Baylin, is mysterious, noble, and extraordinarily striking. Alas, this man isn’t destined for me. I’ve tried everything possible throughout these three years of our marriage, yet never have I gotten his love in return. Now, I’m tired, so I’m conceding defeat. “Let’s get divorced. I’ll set you free, and we’ll no longer have anything to do with each other henceforth.” Stifling the pain, she averted her gaze. Ziven’s face was devoid of expression. After a few seconds of silence, he suddenly picked up the pen and signed the divorce papers without hesitation. Then, he stood up and left indifferently, his tall and captivating back making all the women in the coffee shop swoon for a moment. He never changes. No matter what I do, it never causes the slightest ripple to him. In this case, I’ll just let him go even though the pain is truly agonizing. The moment Arielle left the coffee shop and walked out to the street, her cell phone rang. “Willow.” Answering the call, she bit her lip before murmuring softly, “I did as you advised and had him sign the divorce papers.” “He really signed them?” Willow’s voice on the other end of the phone was threaded with a barely concealed hint of delight and excitement. Arielle frowned as puzzlement swamped her. “Yeah. Willow, why—” “Haha, Arielle Grace, you actually asked Ziven Meyer for a divorce. Haha… You’re such an idiot!” Arielle was momentarily rendered speechless. “What do you mean, Willow?” Her frown deepened as a sliver of uneasiness crept into her. “Nothing. I’m just ecstatic! I’ll only have a chance to be with Ziven Meyer when you two are divorced. Say, why wouldn’t I be happy?” Willow, who was standing at the top of the opposite building, dissolved into laughter. “Why do you think he has always been so uncaring toward you?” “Why?” Clutching her cell phone tightly, Arielle unconsciously stepped out onto the road. “Because he has always believed that it was you who killed his brother. Did you think he’d be nice to the woman who killed his brother?” “I didn’t!” Arielle blurted frantically. “Felix’s death has nothing to do with me! I-It was you?” Her eyes abruptly widened as understanding dawned upon her. “It was you! Willow Grace, it was you who planned everything!” “So what? You want to tell Ziven Meyer that? Unfortunately, it’s too late by now.” Willow’s cackle sounded as though it came from the depths of hell, petrifying to the bone. “I’ll get back at you for this! Willow Grace, you’ve been putting on an act and pulling the wool over my eyes!” Vexation gripped Arielle for having realized this too late. “I’m afraid you won’t have that opportunity.” Willow’s thin lips curved into a vicious smile as she stared at the petite figure on the road

When I take your ha *************** Donghai City, International Airport. “Hurry up!” “Faster!” A few dozen men in black suits rushed out of the exits, each one with an extremely serious face, as if they were going against a formidable enemy. All the passengers in the airport quickly made way for them, not knowing who could have caused such a commotion. The leader of the men in suits frowned deeply, then suddenly turned and left as if he had suddenly thought of something. Soon they reached the pavement outside the airport. Jiang Ning was sitting on a long bench, slowly blowing cigarette smoke out from his mouth. “Master hopes you can go back, he misses you very much,” the leader respectfully addressed Jiang Ning as he stood about five steps behind him. In front of other people, this leader was of high standing, and nobody dared to go against him. But in front of this young man in front of him, he felt extremely lowly! “He misses me?” Jiang Ning turned slightly and there was a smirk on his face. “Does his miss my influence? Or my money?” If someone else had said something like that, this leader would have despised him. How could the rich and powerful Jiang family from the city of Jingdu ever covet anybody else’s power and money? But the man in front of him was different. He was the sole heir of the Jiang family! What made this leader even more shocked was that he was known as the War God of the East, with immense capabilities and jaw dropping wealth! “When he chased me out of the family and married that vixen fifteen years ago, Jiang Ning had died.” Jiang Ning exhaled his last mouthful of smoke, “Jiang Ning now has nothing to do with that Jiang family back in Jingdu.” He got up to leave.
