This chapter is very long, but I hope you’ll enjoy reading it. Please let me know what you think. I’d like to hear from you. Appreciate it!
The following is the teaser:
While the gun was thrown in the air because of Neil’s fall, Madam Elroy wanted to duck like everyone else, but her frail body wasn’t quite cooperating, so she landed on her bottom. As her loyal bodyguard helped her get away from the impending risk, she was unnerved seeing the gun descending dangerously close to her nephew. Much to her dismay, instead of dodging the gun, her nephew thrust the lady right beside him away in the very nick of time. While Madam Elroy expected the worst to take place, it seemed that the one who actually got struck was surprisingly Candice, not William.
Madam Elroy couldn’t help feeling slightly relieved, but William’s reaction afterwards could only be described as frantic with apprehension, which somewhat perturbed the old lady. His voice was high-pitched and nasal while the young girl grimaced. When Madam Elroy was about to approach them, her nephew scooped up the girl and bolted forward. Only then the people in the room began to perceive that Candy might have been wounded. George immediately chased after his young master, and Madam Elroy was the next person who followed them out, running as fast as her legs could carry her.
On the other hand, Albert had tremendous regrets for his action. Rather than pushing Candy away, he should have shielded her. At the same time, the ghastly scene of his nightmare earlier in the morning flashed across his mind again. In the dream, Candy breathed her last in his arms in her death bed. No, Candy, you can’t leave me now!
