Veronica wrapped her arms around Williams waist as she slowly placed her head on his back “I am so sorry, I am so sorry” she apologized while William sighed and separated her hands that was tied around his waist as he turned to face her. He cupped her face in his hand and said “I am not upset with you at all, I promise” he wiped her tears with his thumb as he placed a kiss on her forehead.
“And I promise you no one will come between us, ever” he said as he hugged her while Veronica wasted no time in returning the hug as she rested her head on his chest.
“Sorry to bother you sir, but Miss Catherine and Miss Carline will like to see you”
“Come on, let us go” William said as he held her hand as they both walked down the stairs to see Linda and Catherine
“WILLIAM” Linda called as she ran towards William and hugged him tight while William reluctantly hugged her back while staring at Veronica who tried her best not to look bothered about it.
“Hey Linda, just hey Linda…. We have not seen each other for five years now and
all I got is Just hey Linda”
“I am sorry Linda, I am just in a bad mood today. How have you been?” William asked with a smile on his face
“Fine, I have been modeling, acting, going to variety shows, being channel, Samsung,Adidas brand ambassador. Let just say my life been busy. I guess you have been going to business meetings and making millions every hour”
William smiled before saying” you are right”.
“If you listened to the news, then you will know that you are not suppose to be here by now” Catherine said while staring at Veronica while Veronica lowered her head unable to look Catherine in the eye.
“Veronica, Linda can you guys please excuse us”
“Sure” Veronica said as she lowered her head and walked out of the mansion
“Okay” Linda followed Veronica as they both walked out of the mansion.
“What the hell do you think you are doing Catherine”
“I am looking out for you, Veronica does not deserve you”
“Looking out for me, if you you truly care about me you will support and will stop trying to separate me from the person I love”
“I once supported your love, and what happened when I did? Veronica broke your heart and that resulted to Grandma’s death. William I know how broken you were when she left you the other time. Veronica clearly has issues and there is no assurance that she will not break your heart again”
“Up until now I have always done everything you want me to and that because you mean a lot to me. But this time around you asking for too much, I am not your puppet and you have no right to tell me who to spend the rest of my life with”
“But William you have to…”
“Leave it Catherine, I do not want to talk about it. Whatever I said is finally and I am not going back on my word” he said as he walked away.
“Do not make me do things i will regret William. You know that when I want something, I will surely get it”
“You know that I am just as stubborn as you are, maybe even more stubborn. So do not push it Catherine”
Catherine sighed as she folded her arms while watching her brother walk away, he has no idea how determined she is and does not plan on giving up till she separate both of them.
“Oh hello” Linda finally greeted Veronica nervously after minutes of mentally contemplating on whether to talk to her or not
“Hello” Veronica greeted back as she forced a smile
“You Veronica, Williams wife right?”
“Yes I am” Veronica couldn’t help but admire Linda’s beauty, she is the perfect woman for Williams, she suit his image and everything. Veronica knew She was beautiful, but compared to Linda, she probably doesn’t stand a chance. At least that what she thought.
“I see why William chose you, you are so beautiful” Veronica smiled lightly as she looks at Linda. How can this extremely beautiful woman thinks she is beautiful when she probably looks like poop compared to her
Thanks, you too. And yeah I am a big fan, I watch your movies all the time. Never thought I Will get the opportunity to meet with you in person”
She smiled and held Veronica’s hand as the smile slowly disappeared and turned into a sad one” I really do not want to think I am trying to steal your husband”
“Linda you don’t have to…”Veronica tried to pull her hand away from Linda but she held on to it tightly
“Please listen to me First. Catherine came with a marriage proposal. I said no because I Know William is married, but then she told me that his wife is not making him happy . She told me you have issues and she is scared you might hurt and leave her brother again. I agreed to help her, because you know William is my best friend and I have to protect him at all cost . Seeing you here today, you do not look like a bad person. Trust me when I say I know a bad person when I see one, you just have a few flaws in character but it not really your fault. I promise William is just a friend,I do not feel anything towards him”
“It is okay, I understand Linda. To be honest I feel a little relieved to hear this. I admit I have wronged Williams in the past, but nothing anymore. All I want now is to make him happy”
“I know my best friend loves you a lot and since he does I have no choice but to like you too. I hope we can be friends”
“I don’t see why not”
“And please, do not hate catherine she is not a bad person. She has just been a little protective of William since childhood. I am sure if you prove to her that you love Williams, she will definitely come around”
“I hope so”
“I have to go now, Will see you some other day Veronica”
“Okay” she said with a forced smile as Linda gave her a genuine smile and walked away.
,I need to go to work now* Veronica said as she texted William and headed straight to work since she was already fully dressed for that.
“Did you hear the news, William Morgan is getting married and to Linda Carline” Ruby said with so enthusiasm
“Yeah I heard” Veronica said as she tucked her hair behind her ear as she went through the menu
“You see that Veronica, that is exactly the type of girl that suits someone like William. She is pretty, rich, covered in channel from head to toe, she is a celebrity I mean she is just perfect. Only people like them deserves to breathe the same air as people like William morgan, but as for people like us. We do not stand a chance”
“Why do you keep saying that, what’s wrong with me. I am pretty, I might not be rich or expensive but does that really matters?” Veronica yelled looking so pissed while Ruby stared at looking a bit scared
“Why are you so upset about this. I am sorry, I didn’t know something like that would annoy you”
Veronica sighed and said” I am sorry, I just have a lot on my mind right now”
“Maybe you should go home and rest”
“No there is totally no need for….” Her phone rang while she sighed and looked at
Ruby “excuse me for a second please”
“Sure”Ruby said while Veronica smiled and walked away” hello Catherine”
,”I want you to come to my office be there in 35 minutes” she said with a very commanding tone as she hung up. Veronica sighed and looked at Ruby
“Ruby, I have something very urgent I need to attend to, I will be back”
“Okay see you later then” she said with a smile on her face while Veronica smile back at her and walked out of the restaurant.
Catherine stares at Veronica who looks around unable to make eye contact. Catherine sat down on a sofa in her big office while Veronica sat opposite her with a cup of coffee in her hand
“Look into the briefcase”
“You heard me” Catherine said while Veronica picked up the briefcase and opened it. Her eyes darted from the briefcase to Catherine then back on the briefcase again
“That 1 millions dollars, if that isn’t enough I will give you more, stay out of my brother’s life”
“You think my love for him is something you can just buy?” Veronica asked as she covered the brief case
“I hope you not about to start this sentimental bullshit with me. Take the money and leave his life forever”
I don’t want money Catherine, I want William. i really do not want you to separate us Catherine”
“I am not a bad person, I am just a sister looking out for her brother. I practically raised William, I am way older than him and I Know what best for him. My younger brother Hudson died thanks to heart break. I do not want the same for William. I already lost Hudson, I can’t loose William. There’s no assurance you wouldn’t break his heart again”
“William might make you think he is a tough, strong and cold human who does not give a shit about nothing, but deep inside, he is a big softie. William can get crushed easily, you clearly have a problem and when something happens between both of you ,you will make hasty decisions and wouldn’t realise it till someone get hurt in the process”
“I didn’t have a good childhood and it kind of affects my future and my mode of thinking”
“Your Aunt hated you, William went through something similar, his dad hated him a lot because he thought he was a bastard. You had no idea what William went through, but that did not affect his future and his kids of thinking”
“What if I can prove to you that I am good for Williams, will you forgive me then”
“You can never prove that. You can never. I know you are not good for him”
“But what if I can prove that I love him, will you stop all this then”
“Okay, I will give you a month but during this month, william will have to pretend for the media, he will have to pretend like he is in love with Linda and if you can manage to prove your love in a month. I Will stop all this. I promise you I won’t get them married until the time I gave you to prove yourself is over ”
“It is a deal then” she stood on her feet and said ” I will not disappoint you”
“You are doing the impossible, I can never think you worthy of Williams. No matter what you do, but try your best”
I definitely will” she said as she walked out of her office. She only made this deal so Catherine will forgive her no matter what.
Williams car drove into his compound and was surprised to see Veronica sitting outside on the water fountains
He got down from his car as the driver drove off with it to park it in the garage. “What wrong why are you out here, let go in” “I do not want to go in”
“Why? Is anything the matter?”
“I do not want to go in because I will not be staying here for now”
“What ,why I do not understand did I do something wrong?”
“No you didn’t william, but I want you to do something for me” she said as she held his hand

“I want you to do whatever Catherine wants you to do”
William looked at Veronica as if he didn’t just hear what she said “What?”
“I need you to do whatever Catherine wants you to do. I need you to follow her instructions”
William blinked abruptly as he looked very confused.
“Do you know what you are saying?”
“I do, and I expect you to do this little favour for me ”
