Asher got to where Cora was. Crystal stared at the photos she took with her. She giggled.
“Thank you so much. I can’t wait to show my friends….and I think, you have a guest” she said and nodded at her brother behind her. Cora turned and stared at Asper. Crystal quickly left that place.

“Hey.. Cora” he said.

Cora folded her arms, staring at him. She was giving him the impression that she doesn’t want to talk to him.

“What?” She replied.

“Relax. I just want to talk to you” he said.

“About what?” She asked.

“F*cking calm down already. Do you think I enjoy the fact that I’m standing before you?” He asked.

She scoffed and looked away from him.
“I don’t want to hear you. Just leave” she said and turned to leave. He grabbed her arm and pulled her back.

“I don’t want to marry you”

“I also don’t want to marry you. Do you think any woman would want to spend her beautiful life with a bloody fool like you?” She asked. Asher shot his mouth wide open and gasped.

“Did you just insult me? No woman has ever done that. How could you?!” He asked, almost yelling.

“Why? You wanna beat me up?” She asked. She wasn’t scared at all.

“You are unbelievable Cora. They were right, you’ve changed a lot” he said, staring at her from her head to her toe.
She scoffed.

“I have better things to do than to look at you” she said and left.
Asher groaned and slipped his hands into his pocket. He couldn’t believe what just happened.
Hudson walked towards him, watching Cora as she left.

“So? What did she say?” He asked.

“That girl is so annoying. She just insulted me” he said.

“I never expected that. Cora could chang so much. She isn’t the petty rich girl from before. She’s now..bold, beautiful, hot, se..”

“That’s enough!” Asher said and walked away.
Cora walked to her father.
“Dad, I have an interview. I have to go now” she said. Mr Brooks stared at his daughter.

“Sure, you can. Be safe okay?” He said. She nodded and waved at Mr Grayson.

“Bye dear” he said. After she left, they continued with their games.

Cora walked pass her mother.
“Bye Mom!”

“Wait Cora, excuse me” she said to Mrs Grayson and walked to her daughter.

“Have you seen Asher? Did you both talk?” She asked.

“Yes Mom, I did. I have to go. Come on Thelma” she said and left. She watched as her daughter left, she sat down.

“Your daughter is very beautiful” Mrs Grayson said.

“Oh yes, you are right” she blushed.
When it was night, Cora was already back from her interview. Thelma was checking the news.

“Woah! A lot of people are following you after the interview. Aren’t you the lucky b!tch?”

“That’s not my problem Thelma. I don’t care about the number of people following me. I just need to find a way to help dad’s company so that I won’t have to get married to Asher” she said, hugging herself like she was cold.

Thelma dropped the phone and walked towards her friend.
“Do you really have to do that? You are making things hard for yourself. Just get married to him and… That’s all”

“That’s all? How on earth can you say that? I should forget about the things that bloody fool did to me”

“I understand what he did but… It’s all in the past now. Just forget about it”

“I can’t believe you’ll be saying this. You should leave, I’m tired” she said and walked to her bed. She covered herself with the duvet and placed her head on the pillow.

“Switch off the light on your way out. There’s no need coming tomorrow. I have nothing to do” she said. Thelma sighed and walked out of the room. She switched off the light as her friend instructed.
Asher walked out of the bathroom, wrapping a towel on his waist. He raised his head and saw his sister sitting down by his computer.
“What the f*ck?! Get out!” He yelled.

“What? I’ve seen it before, stop hiding it” she said and rolled her eyes.

“Get lost Crystal!” He yelled again.

“I just checked your browser history, instead of watching a lot of p*rn, get to work and make dad proud”

“Who are you to lecture me? Just leave!” He yelled again. Crystal stood up and walked towards her brother.

“I’m not lecturing you big bro… I’m here to warn you”

“Warn me? About what?” He asked like he was interested in what his sister was saying.

“You have to get married to Cora no matter what”

“Why are you suddenly reminding me?”
Mrs Grayson walked into her husband’s office in the mansion.
“What are you talking about?” She asked.

“I know they both hate each other, but Asher must get married to Cora! I don’t care what it takes”

Crystal was walking to the kitchen when she heard her father’s voice. She leaned by the door and started eavesdropping.

“I’m going to try to talk to him” she said.

“You’d better do. If he doesn’t get married to her, I won’t give him the right no own any of my company” he said. Crystal heard that and closed her mouth in shock.
“What?! How can father say that?!” Asher yelled after hearing his sister’s narration.

“So, you have to do what you have to do” she said and folded her arm.

“I know that is kidding. I’m his only son. He can’t possibly give someone else the company, not even you. You’re just a girl”

“I know that I’m a girl. But I’m more responsible than you. You are just a person who only have eyes girls and nothing else. Man up and f*cking do what you have to do. I don’t want the company anyway. I want to be like my role model, Cora Brooks” she said and walked out of her brother’s room.

Asher groaned and kicked his foot again his table. It hurt him but he didn’t have the time to care about pain now.
Cora was jogging round the mansion. She was panting hard after going round the mansion ten time. She stared at the time and exhaled deeply. She was feeling dirty already. She needed to have her bath. She walked towards the entrance that was when she saw a car driving into the compound. She paused and stared at the car. The butler ran and opened the door. He bowed as the person walked out.
She saw it was her brother. Her lips curved into a weird smile as she walked towards him.

“Hey” she said. Her brother frowned.

“Hey? Is that what you can say to your brother that you haven’t seen for almost three years?” He asked.

She smiled.
“What else should I have said?” She asked.

“Come on, hug me!” He said.

“No… I can’t. I’m all sweaty” she replied.

“Argh, come here you!” He said and pulled his sister. He hugged her.

“Welcome home dumdum!” She said. He raised his head and stared at her.

“Really? Are you gonna call me that now?” He asked as he went after his sister. She ran into the house, laughing.
Mrs Brooks was having breakfast with her husband when she heard someone laughing.
She saw her daughter and someone behind.

“Oh, my son is back” he said and stood up.

“I’m gonna beat your daughter mom” he said.

“Oh please, don’t touch her. She’s my jewel” she said jokingly.

“Oh mom! I missed you so much” he said and hugged his mother.

“No hug for me?” He heard his father’s voice and walked towards him. He wrapped his arms around him and hugged him.

“I missed you too dad” he said.

“I missed you too son” he replied.

“Come on! Sit let’s have breakfast together” Mrs Brooks said.

“I have to shower” she said.

“Yeah, me too. Cora hugged me with her sweaty body” he said, looking disgusted.

“I told you not to hug me first” she shot her brother a hard glare.

“Argh!” He shook his head and walked towards the stairs. Cora followed behind.

“Those two are crazy fighters”
Jack was in Cora’s room, listening to the story of her life.
He just continued scooping ice cream into his mouth as he listened.

“So, they tried to blackmail you but.. the security camera caught everything?”

“Yeah. It’s so stupid”

“That’s what I hate about being a celebrity. You can’t live a simple and private life” Jack said.

“I got him two days ago only to meet a marriage proposal” she said in a low tone.

“From who? Who are you getting married to?” He asked and ate another spoon of ice cream.

“Asher Grayson”

“What?!” He spat out the ice cream and gazed at his sister.
Chai… People are scared of Asher… Even men??
