The Lies Within.

When it all began.

The ray of sunshine reflected through the window and the wall clock which was hung high in the bedroom clicked. Kayla turned on the bed, the cold breeze blew into the room, and she dragged the duvet to her head.

The room was cozy, and she struggled to open her eyes. She glanced around and noticed the room she was in, making her growl silently.

”Not again! ” She groaned, she had a dream that Aiden had asked her to leave and had given her some money to take care of herself. But it was just a dream!

She stood up from the bed and walked into the bathroom to wash her face. Then she took hold of her brush and applied the toothpaste on it.

After some minutes, she walked out of the bathroom, but heard a knock on her door.

She rushed to it and opened the door. Then, she met Max standing by the door with a straight face.

”What is it? ” She inquired rudely, without acknowledging the fact that it was morning.

”That must be your good morning. Well, the Capo asked me to fetch you, he is in the dining room. ” Max added, and she resisted the urge to roll her eyes.

”I will be right behind you. Let me get changed. ” Kayla uttered and shut the door, while Max shook his head before leaving.

Why was he seeking her? Was her dream going to come true? Kayla questioned excitedly and rushed into the bathroom to take a quick bath.

After thirty minutes, she walked out of the room and headed for the dining room. It was a place she was familiar with, unlike the other rooms, and she didn care if Aiden asked his men to give her a tour or not.

Besides, she doesn intend to stay there forever. She walked into the dinning room, her shoe clacking on the marble floor, but he didn spare her a stare.

He was holding a magazine in his hands when she got closer. ”Good morning, ” she uttered, barely above a whisper, and he spared her a brief look but didn reply.

”Did you seek my presence? ” Kayla voiced out when he acted like she was invisible.

”Yes. You
e aware that this is the last day, right. It is a week now and there is no sign of your dad planning on coming or calling me. ” Aiden went straight to the point while flicking his eyes through the pages.

Mr Griffin, who is Kaylas father, had borrowed a huge amount of money from the Capo, and gambled with it and couldn pay it back. Aiden had requested for his daughter as a price until he gets to pay him in a week which he hasn been heard from.

”It surprised me how the days went as a blur too, but you should please give him a chance. Its not evening yet. ” Kayla chipped in while resting her palm on her lap.

”I like things being done my way. You should have known a little thing about me by now, Kayla. I don listen to people, Never! ” He spoke in a rapt tone.

”So…so, what are you going to do now? ” She found herself asking in a cracked voice, as the thought of her being indoors for another week was making her feel traumatized.

This wasn a life she wanted, being indoors because of her fathers selfish decision wasn what she wished for. How can she be the one paying for his sins huh?

”Im going to renew the contract if he fails to bring my money before 6pm. But now, let me put a call across. ” Aiden voiced out. ”Noah! ” He called, and the door went open.

Noah moved towards him with a cell phone, and he asked him to dial Mr Griffins number. The phone began to ring, and he picked it up instantly.

Noah moved the phone and kept it on the table in front of Aiden. ”What day is it? ” He questioned coldly.

”Capo! Goodness! Im so sorry, Im still trying to get your money. Please, have mercy. ” Griffin said while rushing his words.

”It is a week now, Griffin. You
e running out of mercy! ” Aiden added in a plain tone, and Kayla felt sweat forming on her forehead.

Her dad hasn gotten the money? How much did he borrow, huh? And with the look of things, it definitely seems like a huge amount. Oh, heaven
