He walked down the narrow lane, and she could see him staggering while he walked towards her. Tears were falling down her cheeks continuously. She ran towards him and hugged him tightly. She could smell the stitch of alcohol coming from his clothes, but she ignored it and hugged him desperately as if he was her last resort. After a second, he pushe... 

Chapter 1

Elara inhaled deeply, as she shifted to the other side clutching her pillow close to her chest. She was in deep sleep as she struggled and rolled around.

Her beautiful face was covered with sweat as she shouted in her sleep.

“Kel don’t…please don’t be like this, I am sorry for what happened but it was not my fault. You know how much I love you. I wasn’t even there.”

“Please Kel …”

“Listen to me, please I am begging you.”

“Ahhhh, it's hurting, stop it.”

“I beg you … Ahhhhhhh…no, no, no…”

“It hurts!!”

“Ahhhhhhhhh…”

Elara woke up all of a sudden and her alarm was buzzing noisily. She was sweating and she looked around nervously and realized that she was in a luxurious Suit of a five-star hotel with a great view of the city.

It has been a long time since she had these flashbacks in her dream. She was shaking miserably and tears rolled down her cheeks. She did not want to remember her past but it always disturbed her well-organized life.

There was a knock on the door, Elara opened her mouth to speak but because she had cried for a long time her mouth had dried up and she couldn't speak. She wiped her tears hastily and grabbed the glass of water on the bedside table.

She gulped it down her throat and after making herself comfortable she said. “Come in Brett.”

A man opened the door of the bedroom, holding a pile of documents.

Elara had gotten up from the bed and was now sitting comfortably on the sofa. She was wearing her pyjamas and was looking very sexy.

The man just glanced at her briefly and looked away as swiftly as he could.

“Good morning Elara, I wanted you to sign these papers before we head out for the award ceremony. As the deal has already been finalized Mr. Damian has told me to finish the paperwork and meet him at the venue.” Brett put the documents down in front of her.

Elara was not interested in those documents as she was still thinking about the dream. Although Brett came at the right time and distracted her, she couldn’t get it out of her mind.

She gulped a sip of water nervously.

Brett noticed that she was a little distracted and kept quiet.

Elara had picked up her phone and was looking at the domestic news. Suddenly a video popped up and a handsome face came into her view but it was not his face that caught her attention but the name below it.

For a flicker of seconds, she was surprised when she looked at the man carefully, he was undoubtedly a very handsome man but not like… “Oh shoot!” she exclaimed softly. And shook her head nervously.

“Did you say something?” Brett asked curiously as he was sure he heard her whisper something. He was busy observing her expressions when she looked at her phone and had already made a wild guess that something was bothering her.

“Ah…nothing Brett. Just pass me the documents, and I will sign them.” She was stammering.

Brett was shocked because he had known her for the past two years and she was always in control of her emotions, he had never heard her stammering.

Elara was busy signing the papers but was aware that Brett was giving her strange looks but she wasn’t bothered.

After she was done, she handed the documents to Brett.

“Well then, I will get going, as I need to get ready for the evening. Do you want something to eat as the event starts around seven in the evening followed by dinner and it will take a lot of time before you finally grab something to eat?”

Just then her stomach made a rumbling sound and Elara realized that she was really hungry.

She smiled and nodded her head.

Brett was a very efficient assistant and he knew her really well. He was the only person she trusted other than her mother and cousin.

“Alright, I will order it right away. The designer and the make-up man will come around five with your dress. So you have an hour. Do you have any further instructions for me?” He asked courteously.

“Just check your phone, I have sent you a screenshot, find out the full details of that guy as soon as possible.” She said briskly.

Brett nodded his head and left the room.

They were both sharing the presidential suite as it had two rooms, so Elara had insisted he stay with her.

After Brett left Elara went inside the bathroom and soaked herself in the bathtub trying to relax.

She closed her eyes and was in deep thought. Her expressions were changing randomly as she tried to control her emotions.

After a long time, she got up from the bathtub and wearing her bathrobe came out of the bathroom.

She walked inside the room and observed that the food had arrived and was loaded with her favourites. Brett knew her taste and mood swings.

She smiled and looked at the Lemon tart looking so mouthwatering, she couldn’t control herself and started licking it. It was heavenly and for a moment she forgot about her surroundings and was busy finishing her brunch.

Her cell phone started ringing as she wiped her mouth with satisfaction after finishing the brunch.

She looked at the caller and picked it up immediately.

“Hi honey, how are you?” A woman spoke from the other end.

Elara wanted to cry but she held on, as this was the first time she had been away from her mother for a week.

“I am good, mom. How are you?” She said in a choked voice.

“What’s wrong honey are you crying?” She could hear her mother’s concerned voice.

“No Mom, I am not crying, I just had some water so I choked.” She lied to her.

“Elara you should be careful honey.”

“Yes Mom, I am missing you and Alina, l will be back soon.”

“Awe honey we miss you too. We are eagerly waiting for your return.”

For a minute no one spoke, and then as if knowing her daughter her mother said. “What’s wrong honey? What’s bothering you? Tell me don’t keep everything inside you.”

Elara hesitated for a moment and said. “Mom I think it’s time to go back to Cyprus.” She had done a lot of thinking while she was soaked in the bathtub and finally made up her mind.

“But are you ready?” Her mother asked with concern. “Honey, I don’t want to lose you, I have already lost your father.”

Elara was quiet for some time and then in a firm voice, she said. “Yes Mom, I am ready. I am ready to go back and get justice for my deceased father. I want to bring back his glory and honour. And make everyone pay for what they had done back then.”

“Alright honey, then I will hold your hand and walk with you and make sure everyone responsible, will suffer for what they have done to our family.” She promised her with determination.
