Lucas took the breakfast for his wife to her room, he could not bear to ruin her mood after seeing Saikus still there in the dining hall. The man sure was having fun with the newly found change, their relationship had finally undergone a healthy change.
'I'm sure she has a change of opinion about me. This is great considering that now I can bluntly go around kissing her.'
He giggled while picking up the tray and meaningfully glanced at the washroom. Nathalie had gone for a bath and had to rush towards her corp. The lady had already been running late due to the ruckus Saikus had created.
'I should head out soon before the same mistake happens again. Or else this time she will throw all the blame on me.'
He thought to himself and walked out of the room with the tray. Lucas was in his own reverie when he did not see Saikus appearing out of the corner. The man deliberately flung his leg out to make sure Lucas tossed around.
As expected he tripped and the tray fell from his hands. Lucas hurt his knees and palm when the glass cut his wrist. He looked up angrily at the man, when Saikus was ready to impose his authority over him.
What he had known his identity the same man would have bee
treating him with sugary words, and had been begging him in turn!
"What? Why are you staring at me like that? Did cat caught your tongue/"
Saikus leaned in at him and held his jaw tightly. He wanted to mock him, precisely beat Lucas but as the old man had brought him with himself Saikus did not want to risk his wealth just to teach him a lesson.
"Back there you were talking so big, uh? Now what happened?"
He gritted and whispered to Lucas while they both stood there in the corridor alone.
"You think you are so precious and favoured by her? Do you think that playing this caretaker role will get a rewarding sum from that old man, huh?"
Saikus had been unleashing all his insecurities at him, in turn unknowingly he had been feeding Lucas his own weaknesses. The business lord was notoriously known to beat the shit out of the people. Lucas had never spared his enemies any wealth or even a roof to take shelter, just a 1000$ sum.
Well no one really understood his style that why he used to leave that measly amount to his nemesis, but then again who cared for that because he never aimed to destroy the good guys. So, one could definitely trust his decisions.
Lucas shoved his hand away making sure the man could see his personality shift and would never forget it at all.
"No. Definitely no, because I'm not a leech like someone certain."
He threw the earlier incident at him, and left the shattered glass on the floor. Lucas was not in a mood to initiate a fight when he had just elevated his relationship with his wife.
"And please sir, you should focus on healing but it seems that you are preparing the consequences for the other one too!"
Saikus could not help but grit his teeth while seeing Lucas exiting the corridor but how could he let go of his ego that why he yelled from behind.
"I will see you! You bitch!"
Lucas waved his hand in the air without turning back or even moving his body. The man was confident that even if Saikus would go to the lengths to destroy his the sources Lucas had were enough to eradicate the whole Lancaster family in one day without leaving any clue!
Meanwhile inside the shower Nathalie had been troubling with her own bubbling emotions. But she was elated to witness Lucas standing up for her and to make sure that he was able to protect her.
'It seems that he is not a dumb person at all, the way he took stand for me was impressive!'
Nathalie felt her cheeks getting hot again so she tapped her cheeks and finished her bath. It was the moment when she recalled how Lucas sounded dominant and worried about her, the way he was gentle with her was contrasting with the way he handled Saikus.
'Oh come on, Nat! Accept the fact that you have started to like him. Come on girl, he is not that bad. At least he cares for you.'
The lady had finally fallen for his game the moment when Lucas was not playing, but acted reflexively. How ironic!
The lady prepared herself to leave for the corp, when she was about to exit the villa Nathalie thought to bid goodbye to him. She walked towards the room with a smile thinking that she would kiss him on the cheek to surprise him and as a gesture of her kind of thank you.
But of course that was only for him!
But as soon as she reached the kitchen she heard a loud gasp of numerous voices which came from the kitchen insides. She rushed towards the door only to see a girl kissing Lucas!
Nathalie could not believe her eyes, what did she just see, her own husband had been kissing some woman who was not her. Nathalie felt immense jealousy within her but something crushed in her chest too, maybe her heart who could not bear the pain of being betrayed.
After the staff gestured to him that Lucas turned around only to see a beautifully dressed Nathalie Lancaster standing at the door of the kitchen, there was surprise on her face yet a horrified expression had also raced her face.
'No, no, she must have misunderstood me.'
Lucas pushed the lady away and lunged towards the door to clear up his situation but it was too late. Nathalie ran away towards the exit but somehow a tear of pain crawled down her cheek. The woman who had never cried after her father Boris had beaten her, but now she had shed tears because of a man again.
'How could he do this to me? He is just like everybody else. Bastard!'
