Tim carried Kira to work. The two of them did not talk until they reached J international school.

Tim just let Kira open the car door and then he drove away without even saying goodbye.

Kira’s gaze followed Tim’s car and then she sighs!

‘Is it wrong to hide it from him?’
‘I just don’t want to add to his troubles.’ Kira said to her self.

Tim watched Kira through the rearview mirror. He saw when Kira turned to enter the second gate.

Tim stepped on the brake and pulled over the car, and then he made a U-turn and went back to the second gate to talk to Kira. He doesn’t want to leave like this.
He felt so bothered.
Communication is the best foundation for every relationship.

Tim parked the car outside the gate. He walks towards the gate and was about to enter but the security guard prevented him.

“Excuse me, sir! May I see your Identification Card?” The security asked.

Tim took his wallet and gave his identification card to the security, the security was a bit stunned when he read Tim’s name.

“Oh, you can get inside Mr. Tan! I’m sorry I didn’t recognize you, sir!” The security apologized.

Tim just nodded his head, he took back his Identification card and walks away.

Tim headed to the admin office, but his footsteps came to a stop when he saw something.



Kira is walking to the admin office when he heard someone called her..


Kira stopped in her track and she turned her head to the voice’s direction.

“Alex!” Kira blurted out when she saw Alex approaching her.

“How are you feeling?” Alex asked as soon as he reached Kira.

“I-I’m fine…” Kira replied.

“Kira, there is something I want to tell you,” Alex said.

“What is it?”

“From now on, you should be more careful,” Alex warned Kira.

“Why?” Kira asked again.

“I think, someone is targetting you,” Alex said.

“How do you say that?” Kira knitted her brows.

“This is all I could say for now. It would be better if you won’t leave alone. It is not safe for you to be alone outside, those men might be back for you.” Alex said.

“But, who would target me?” Kira tried to think.

Kira froze…

Madame Gezel has already gone back to E Country and Gaile in L Country did they bribed someone to take revenge on me?

Kira couldn’t think anyone else who would do this to her.

Kira snapped back to her senses when Alex suddenly hold her hand, she automatically looks up at him.

“Kira, please be careful always, I think it’s better to tell your husband about this. He can surely give you protection.” Alex suggested.

Yes! He is ready to protect Kira, but he has his limit.
He’s not on her side every minute, he doesn’t know when will they attack her again.

If Kira will tell Tim about this, Alex is sure that Tim could provide Kira a personal bodyguard to protect her from any danger!

Meanwhile, not far from them, Tim stepped back.
He saw how Alex held Kira’s hand and she did not object.

Tim doesn’t want to judge by what he saw, but he couldn’t help but feel jealous. He doesn’t want another man to hold or even just touch his woman.

Tim couldn’t stay here any longer.
He is afraid, he might lose his temper and hurt Alex, he should leave before he can cause trouble.

With that thought, Tim turned away and headed to the exit. He rode in his car and drove away.



Mr. Fuente is in his office, he is sitting on his chair in front of his wooden table while reading documents when his phone suddenly rings!

He stopped reading the documents.
“Yes.” He said plainly.

“Boss, I have good news.” The man from the other line said.

“You captured another photo of them?” Mr. Fuente man asked.

“It is better than capturing a photo of them together, boss.”

The old man knitted his brows, ” I’m interested.” he said with excitement.
“So, tell me.” He added.

“I don’t need to capture another photo of them together, Boss.”


“Because Mr. Tan saw them with his eyes”

“Oh! That’s better then!” The old man smirked.

“It’s time to send those photos to Tim.”

“Yes, boss” the man replied.

The old man turned off his phone and he revealed a smile of victory.

“Get ready to suffer, woman” He said with his sharp gaze.

Tim is sitting in his swivel chair while in deep thought.

(Knock, knock, knock!)

Tim snapped back to his senses when he heard the knock on the door.

“Come in!” He responds.

The door slowly opened, “Good morning, Mr. Tan” it was Coby.

“Mr. Tan, somebody sent you this…” Coby said while showing the brown envelope to Tim.

He walks closer to Tim’s table and put it at the top of his table.
Tim knitted his brows as he looks at the envelope.

“Who sent this?” he asked.

“It’s anonymous, sir” Coby replied.

Tim picked up the envelope, he took a look at it before he removed the seal.

Tim shoves and he slowly pulled out the content of the envelope, and his expression slowly changed when he saw what it is.

It was a photo of a man and a woman inside the car.

The woman seems like she is lying on the backseat while the man in a teacher’s uniform is on top of her. Just by seeing this photo, it seems like these two people are doing a thing which only married couples should do.

Tim proceeds to the next photo and he felt like someone splashed him ice-cold water and his hand started to tremble as he stared at the photo.

‘No! It can’t be!’ Tim said to himself.

There are two people in the photo.
It’s Kira and Alex!

Alex is wearing the same uniform as the man in the first photo. This time the two of them have got out of the car.

Alex is holding Kira’s things with his left hand while the other is holding Kira’s hand.

Tim suddenly remember Kira’s strange behavior this morning, and then he also remember what he saw at the school.

Is this the reason why she’s acting strange?
Is this the reason why she can’t look at me in the eyes?
Is she having an affair with Alex and she felt guilty about it?

“Mr. Tan, are you alright?” Coby asked when he noticed Tim’s change of expression.

“Get out,” Tim said coldly.

“But, Mr. Tan—”

“I said get out!” Tim has gone furious!

Coby instantly shut her mouth when Tim yelled.

“Alright, Mr. Tan,” he said as he stepped back, turned away, and then he walks out of Tim’s office..

Just then, Mr. Fuente arrived as soon as Coby closed the door of Tim’s office.

“Good morning, Mr. Fuente.” Coby bowed his head as he greeted Mr. Fuente.

“Good morning,” Mr. Fuente replied. ” Is Tim inside his office?” He asked.

“Yes, Mr. Fuente,” Coby replied.

“May I speak with him?” Mr. Fuente asked again.

” I’m sorry, Mr. Fuente, but Mr. Tan is not available at the moment,” Coby replied.

“Why?” Mr. Fuente asked as if he doesn’t have any idea.

“Mr. Tan is not in a mood to right now,” Coby said,

“Oh!” Mr. Fuente blurted out.

“I’ll be right back when he feels alright already,” He added.

“Alright, Mr. Fuente,” Coby replied.

Mr. Fuente turn to leave, but he revealed an evil smirk as soon as he turned his back away from Coby.

‘It works, all I have to do is to wait until he dumps that woman!’ He thought.

Back inside Tim’s office…

I thought everything is alright between us!
Tim couldn’t help but feel insecure!
He knows Kira doesn’t love him from the very start.
He knows that she likes Alex, she was just forced to marry him for her auntie’s sake!

Tim closed his eyes tightly as he put his hand on his head.
He doesn’t know what to think of anymore.
His heart refused to believe that Kira might be cheating on him, but his mind says, it is possible!



She will take Alex’s advice.
She will tell Tim what happened yesterday.

Kira keeps on pacing back and forth, she is restless

After a while, she heard a car’s engine coming. She stopped pacing back and forth and got out of the house.

She waited for Tim to gets down of the car.

“Tim…” Kira called when she saw Tim.
“Can we talk?” Kira added.

Tim froze…

He glanced at Kira, “I’m busy.” He said, and then he just passed Kira and headed straight upstairs.

Kira was left alone outside the door.
Tim is treating her cold.
Is it because of what happened this morning?

Kira felt like crying, it was her fault!
She caused this misunderstanding between them!

Helena noticed Kira standing alone outside the house.

“Kira?” Helena called Kira as she approached her.

“What are you doing here outside, alone?” She asked.


Helena froze when she saw Kira’s crying expression.

“Why? Is there something wrong?”

“N-No, Auntie…” Kira replied, but Helena knows whether she’s lying or not.

Helena lifted her hand and touched Kira’s face.

“Kira, I know you… I know that you’re lying.” She said.

“Auntie…” It’s the only words that Kira was able to say.

“Tell me what’s the matter.”

“I-It’s just a misunderstanding between me and Tim,” Kira replied.

“Oh, dear, misunderstanding happens anytime, especially to a married couple like you and Tim. But what is more important, is that you should not lose communication with each other. Even if you see each other every day, you still need to communicate with each other. Talk about this matter with him, and everything will be fixed.”

Kira nodded her head.

She went upstairs after talking to her auntie. She didn’t eat her dinner because she doesn’t have the appetite to eat.
Kira headed straight to the master’s bedroom, she thought that Tim is there. She opened the door but she hasn’t seen Tim inside the bedroom.

‘He might be in the study room!’

With that thought, Kira closed the master’s bedroom and headed to the study room. She held the doorknob and was about to turn it open, but it was locked.

Kira knocks on the door and called for Tim, “Tim, are you there?” She asked, but no one answered.

Kira waited for a few more minutes, hoping that Tim will open the door. But he didn’t.

She turned and went to the master’s bedroom with his shoulders dropped.
She laid on the bed and wait for Tim to get back into the bedroom, but time passed and Kira has not seen Tim even just his shadow.
