Falling For The Scientist Daughter
Not having my phone on me, I was lost when all the phones of the guest went off simultaneously. Summer grumbly reaching out to her phone to see what the whole fuss was about, sprung to her feet immediately after seeing whatever it was. Knowing my best friend and knowing that only a few things in life could get her this sober and alert quickly, my interest was piqued
“What’s wrong?” I asked my best friend who was now quiet starting from her phone back to me.
Not being able to articulate whatever it was that she read, she handed me her phone. Bring the phone up to my face; my suspicions were confirmed; it was indeed scandalous.
Although the fonts were small, the news was catastrophic.
“Breaking news, all is not well in the Luthors household. GMC heard from a credible source to the family that the heiress might not be the heir after all. It seems like Jake wild days are back to hurt him with the emergence of his bastard, the oldest and only son has driven the matriarch of the family Elizabeth away from her home and now about to shatter Alex dream of inheriting all that she thought would be hers.”
I could not believe this was happening right now.
I was reeling, my mind spinning.
Only a few knew about it and almost everyone who knew where bound by NDA not to disclose anything whatsoever regarding the Luthor leaving one suspect left
Marching out the hall with all eyes trained on me, I found the culprit standing by the pool in her bikini talking to some girl with no phone in sight.
With every fibre of my being screaming not to what I was about to do due to the semantics of it all, the guest and paparazzi and most importantly Lisa and everything she has taught me about de-escalation and manners, I refused to heed to the voice of reasoning.
Blindsiding her, I slapped her.
Walking away with her screaming at me from the pool and the cameras going off like crazy, I weaved through the crowd desperately needing to escape all of this.
