*The next day*

“Sweetheart?” Tim shook Kira to wake her up.

“Hmmm…” Kira mȯȧnėd as she moves.

“C’mon! You have to wake up. We have to go somewhere,” Tim said.

“Where?” Kira asked in a groggily.

“You’ll know it when we arrive there,” Tim said.



*1hr later*

“We’re here” Tim said as soon as he stopped the car.

Kira looked outside the car and her brows knitted when she reads the word on the entrance, ” A shooting club?” she blurted out.

“Yes,” Tim replied while removing his seatbelt.

Kira turned her head to Tim, “Why are we here?” she asked.

“You have to learn this,” Tim said.
“You’ll have a shooting lesson twice a week,” He added.

“Shooting lesson?” Kira repeated.

“Yes, it is a part of your training to defend yourself against those people with ill intention,” Tim replied.

“Oh,” Kira blurted out.

Tim stretched his hand to remove Kira’s seatbelt.

“Let’s go!”

Tim and Kira entered the shooting club, a man who is the same age as Tim approached them.

“Timothy” The man called Tim.

“Diego” Tim called back the man.

The two of them shook hands.

“It’s been a while” The man named Diego said to Tim.

“Yeah, it’s been a while, I got busy to work, so, I couldn’t make time on coming here,” Tim said.

“And who is this beautiful lady with you?” Diego asked when his gaze fell to Kira.

“My wife, Kira,” Tim replied.
“I want her to learn shooting,” Tim added.

“Oh, great. You can come inside” Diego said.



Tim helped Kira to wear her eye and ear protector before he started teaching her how to handle the gvn.

Tim put a bvllet in the gvn and let Kira hold it, “Aim it to the target,” He said.

“Alright,” Kira nodded her head.

She lifted her hands which is holding the gvn, “Is this right?” She asked.

Tim stands behind Kira, he lifted his hand and held both of her hands.

“Hold it tightly,” Tim said as he holds Kira’s hand.

“Stretch your arm,” he added.

“Alright” Kira said as she stretches her hand.

Kira waited for Tim to let go of her hand, but Tim seemed like he doesn’t plan to let go of her.

“Uhm, Tim?” Kira called Tim.

“Hmmm?” He responded.

“Are we just going to hold hands here?” Kira said.

“Oh!” Tim blurted out.
“I couldn’t let go of your hand.” He said with a flirty smile on his face.

“Tim, we are in a public place, stop being flirty,” Kira said in a low voice.

“So, I can do it if we are alone?” Tim whispered.

“Ugh! You always did it whenever we are alone”

Kira pays attention as she aimed the gvn to the target, before she slowly pulls the trigger, and then “BANG!” a loud gvnshot could be heard.

“Nice shot!” Tim clapped his hand .” You’re such a fast learner sweetheart!” He added as he looked at the hole on the target.

“Ugh!” Kira rolled her eyes, ” It wasn’t even a bull’s eye!” She said.
“I only shot the number seven!” Kira complained.

“Not bad for the first time, sweetheart” Tim tried to cheer up Kira.

“Go on, and try again,” He added.

Kira continued shooting.

It wasn’t easy for her because it is her first time to hold a gvn, but Tim knows she will become better and better.



After the shooting class, the two of them have gone home, and when they reached home, they met Coby, waiting with two people.

“Mr. Tan the bodyguards that you requested are already here,” Coby said when Tim get down from the car.

“Have you waited for long?” Tim asked.

“No, Mr. Tan, we have just arrived a few minutes earlier than you,” Coby replied.

Kira gets off the car.

“Good afternoon, Missus.” Coby greeted Kira.
Kira nodded her head as a response.

The three of them entered the house and saw a man and a woman in the living room. Kira looked at the man. He is wearing a white polo shirt, a black necktie, and a black men’s blazer and then her gaze fell on the woman, she is wearing the same color of a dress, the only difference is the necktie. The woman is not wearing a necktie.

The man and the woman stood up from their seats as soon as they saw them entered the house..

“Good afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Tan!” The two of them greeted as they bowed their heads.

“I am Sevi Henderson, from M Security Agency,” The man introduced himself.

“I am Tasha from the same agency,” The woman introduced herself.

“I have already done a background check on them, and they passed all the quality that you’ve requested,” Coby said.

Tim looked at the two bodyguards in front of him, “Sevi, Tasha I believe that you already know us,” he said.

“Yes, Mr. Tan,” Sevi and Tasha replied.

” The two of you will be my wife’s bodyguard,” Tim said.

“I want you to ensure her safety and prioritize her before anything else,”

“Yes, Mr. Tan”

Tim turned his head to Kira, “Sweetheart, from now on, you are not allowed to leave alone.” he said.

“The two of them will accompany you wherever you will go,” Tim added.

“Ennn…” Kira nodded her head.

The next day, Kira get out of the house to go to work.

Tim is already outside the house when she reached there.

“Hey, sweetheart, ” Tim approached Kira and kssed her cheek.

After a while, Kira saw a car heading towards the house, ” Who is that?” Kira asked with her knitted brows.

It wasn’t Tim’s car. She didn’t see Tim uses this car before.

“You can’t use your scooter from now on,” Tim said.

“So, I told Sevi to take another car from the mansion,” He added.

Kira looked up to Tim, “That’s yours?” She blurted out.

“Ours,” Tim corrected, “We are already married, so, what’s mine is also yours,” he added.

“Oh,” Kira blurted out.

“But Tim, don’t you have the cheapest car?” Kira asked.

Tim looked down at Kira, “Why?” He asked.

“I can’t use that kind of car to work, I mean, look,” Kira throws a look to the car, “That car looks so luxurious!” she said.

“Oh!” Tim blurted out, “But that is the cheapest car that I have” Tim said.


Kira was speechless, ‘It is his cheapest car?’ Kira asked herself.

‘How could he call that cheap when it cost millions?’
‘Yeah, what would I expect from a rich man like him?’ she secretly said.

“How about, we’ll just take a cab?” Kira suggested.

“C’mon, I am still safe, Sevi and Tasha will be there for me,” Kira reasoned.



“Thank you” Kira thanked the taxi driver after paying her bill.

She turned to Sevi and Tasha, “You guys can’t come with me inside the campus, you have to wait for me outside until I finish my work.” Kira said to them.

Sevi and Tasha looked at each other, ” Missus, Mr. Tan told us to go with you wherever you go,” Tasha said.

“I know, but I will be safe inside the campus.”

“I’m sorry Missus, We can not let you out of our sight.” Sevi was the one to spoke.

Kira sighs, “Alright!”

“You guys can come with me, but you can’t get inside my class, you will distract my students,” Kira said.

Sevi and Tasha nodded their heads and followed Kira inside the campus.

The two of them waited for Kira outside her classroom.



In the afternoon, Sevi received a call from Tim. He left while Tasha stayed at the school.

Just as Kira and Tasha got out of the campus, Sevi was back in a car. Kira automatically knitted her brows.

“Where did you get that car?” She asked when Sevi got off from it.

“It is from Mr. Tan, Missus,” Sevi replied.

Kira looked at the car. The car doesn’t seem new, and it is not the luxurious type either.

Kira’s phone suddenly rings. She took her phone from her bag. She swiped it before she put it on her ear.

“Hey, sweetheart!” It was Tim’s voice.
“How’s the car?” He asked.

Kira looked at the car, “It is good, thank you,” Kira said.

“Do you like it?”

“Yeah, it is simple, I can’t catch the attention of everybody here at the school,” Kira said.

“That’s great!” Tim said.

“Where did you get this anyway?” Kira asked.

“I asked Coby to look for a car for sale that will fit in your taste.”


“It is not a brand new car, but I am glad that you still like it,”

“Hey, hubby, you know that I am a simple person, ” Kira said.

“I know, that’s why I love you even more,” Tim replied.

Kira smiled, “You never fail to flatter me, huh!”

“I have to hang up now,” Tim said after a while.
“You still have to go somewhere,” He added.

Kira’s brows knitted, “Go somewhere—” Kira was not able to finish her word when Tim ended the call.

“Missus, we have to go, you’ll be late,”

Kira turned her head to Sevi with her puzzled look, “Where are we going?” She asked.

“Somewhere, Missus,” Sevi replied.

Kira looked out of the car, ‘Where are they taking me to?’ she asked herself.

She then looked at Sevi and Tasha who are wearing their serious expressions. She closed her eyes and shook her head, ‘I should not doubt these two, Coby already said that he did a background check to them, they can’t be a foe, right?’

“We’re here, Missus,” Sevi said as he stopped the car.

Kira automatically snapped back to her senses when she heard Sevi. She looked out of the window. Her knitted brows got even deeper.

‘This place doesn’t seem familiar to her!’

Tasha opened the car door. She got out of the car and waited for Kira to get down before she closed it again.

Kira followed Tasha. She straightened her body as she looked at the building in front of her, “A martial arts training center?” she mumbled.

“Mr. Tan told me to bring you here, after work, you’ll have a lesson twice a week,” Sevi said.

‘Uh, so, this is what he meant,’ Kira thought.

Sevi and Tasha accompany Kira inside of the building. They went to the dressing room. They changed their dresses into a martial arts uniform. They then headed to the studio.

Kira saw a woman inside the studio. She was sitting on the floor in a lotus position with her eyes closed. She looked like meditating..

Kira stared at the woman but, she almost screams when the woman suddenly opened her eyes.

“You’re here,” The woman said as she looked Kira straight to the eyes.

‘Whoa! She looked scary with that poker face!’ Kira said inside.

“Good afternoon, coach” Sevi and Tasha greeted the woman.

“G-Good afternoon, coach” Kira followed to greet.

“Good afternoon,” The woman got up from the floor.

” I am coach Rizel.” The woman introduced herself.

“I am Kira, Miss Rizel.”

“Coach Rizel,” Rizel corrected Kira.

“C-Coach,” Kira stammered.

She felt nervous about this woman’s presence.

“I will be teaching you how to defend your self in case someone will attack you.” Rizel said straight forward.

“But first, I will teach you the basics,” Rizel added.

Kira just nodded her head repeatedly.
