Saying Crawford was the crappiest board member would be an understatement. The only person he feared was Parul, but after Parul fell sick, Crawford had taken sides. He didn’t like Brendon because Brendon was too smart, whereas Eric was relatively easier to control.Crawford considered Adam to be too irresponsible to even spare a second for him. So, Crawford rarely ever spoke to Adam before.Adam went to his office.Crawford was an abnormally tall guy with great-looking hair despite his age. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that he looked a few years younger just because of his hairstyle.“Mr. Crawford,” Adam humbly greeted Jonas Crawford. “It’s a pleasant surprise to see you here. To what do we owe this pleasure? Is your family doing great?” He purposely tried to speak a bit too much to make himself look friendly.“What’s there to talk about my family? I just got my 13th divorce,” Jonas sighed. Even though he shook hands with Adam, he didn’t get up from the seat, which showed Ada
The El Man movie produced by the famous Jacob Sterling and acted by many top actors just released today.This was the movie that Adam and Evelyn put a lot of hopes on because they invested into the catering businesses across the city. If the movie were to succeed, they would earn multiple times of profit. If the movie were to become an average hit, they wouldn’t lose any money. Since the producer had a record of making every single one of his movies a blockbuster hit, Adam and Evelyn were fully confident in this movie, which was also the movie with the highest budget of all time.Both Evelyn and Adam went to the theater, but to their shock, Reena was there. She got a seat right next to Adam.With Evelyn on one side, and then Reena rubbing her foot from the other side, Adam almost went crazy. If Evelyn were to notice, what would she think? He surreptitiously glanced at Reena, trying to tell her to stop acting childish, but she seemed to be having fun from putting Adam in a tough spot.
Reena and Adam rushed out of the theater, and Evelyn just happened to see them while talking with the contractors on her mobile. On top of that, it started raining. “He’s unbelievable,” Evelyn gritted her teeth. “I was a fool to think he’s changed.” Adam and Reena entered a car that surely wasn’t Adam’s, and they hurriedly drove away. Evelyn ran to Adam’s car, only to then realize that she didn’t have the keys. “Ugh, dammit!” she ran back into the theater. She kept walking to and fro, hoping that the rain would be gone soon, but it only grew intense with every passing second. Evelyn didn’t even feel like talking to the contractors right now. She quickly called Adam, but he didn’t answer. She angrily smiled. “Of course. I was a fool to even call you, thinking you might answer. A leopard can never change its spots.” She was hoping for a Best Day Ever if the movie were to become a hit, but that didn’t happen. The saying ‘when it rains, it pours’ came to her mind. She didn’t go back
Even though Adam lost all the money he invested, a total of ten million dollars, he didn’t feel too bad right now because he spent the night with Reena, and they didn’t have sex but were watching romantic movies all night. After watching the movies till sunrise, when both their bodies and souls were fully craving for love, Reena still managed to hold herself well.“I will sleep in my bed,” Reena said. “You can sleep in the other room. That’s good for both of us.” She wanted to prove to him she could control herself well if wanted to.However, Adam grabbed her hand and pulled her into his embrace and began to kiss her everywhere on her face except the lips. “S-Stop, Adam,” she said in a trembling voice, but there was a hint of thrill in her voice. While almost every man she had sex with before lustfully kissed her on the lips, what Adam did now was a first for her. He was gentle, yet the pressure from his lips sent vibrations all over her body and to the depths of her soul. It felt so
Evelyn came home that evening and jumped onto the bed. She hugged her pillow and tried to be calm.However, she couldn’t help but think about Jim.He was without a doubt the most handsome man she had seen. He was not just tall and handsome but had a really good sense of humor and a voice that was very good on the ears.“Though it started off bad, by the time it ended, my impression about him changed very much. It’s rare to find bachelors like him, but the issue was that I’m not sure if he’s interested in me or not. How do I find out? Should I call him first? Or should I wait for him to call me? What if he doesn’t call me? How long should I wait? One day? Two days? Three days?”Seconds passed.“This isn’t helping. I’ll be patient for a few days and see if he calls me,” Evelyn thought. “Fi he does call me, it means he’s interested in me. If he calls me much later, then he’s not interested in me and is only trying to use me.”She kept thinking about him and ended up sleeping without hers
As Adam approached the scene, the crows reluctantly flew away to the nearby posts and rooftops but still very much kept their eyes on him. There were at least twenty-odd of these black little things.Adam stopped and looked at the old man lying lifelessly on the sidewalk. There was no life in his eyes, which were half closed, and the black plastic bag beside him was open, with many items on the ground, suggesting that someone searched the bag for valuables.Evelyn joined Adam but was not able to see the old man’s corpse. She stood behind Adam. “Did he die? The beggar?”“He’s been dead for hours,” Adam said, his voice deep and concealing the pain and sadness swelling in him.“Let’s call the ambulance,” Evelyn said. “They are going to take care of him.”Adam, however, picked the old man up with both of his arms. He was not that heavy because he was very thin. His body had already hardened and was not bending at all. It looked like Adam was carrying a pole instead.“W-What are you doing,
In a remote villa, the foxy maids in flimsy uniforms were wrapping a middle-aged man in bandages, making sure he didn’t experience the slightest discomfort. He had a sullen look on his face as he peered at the old butler who worked for his father. “I don’t want to do this.”“This is your father’s wish,” the old butler said politely. He had little to no hair left on his head. His nose was full of dark spots because of old age. “I spent over a year looking for the right person, and I’ve only recently found him. We should make use of the fact that you’ve got into an accident, Young Master Adam.”Adam sucked in a breath. “Leave us alone.”The maids followed his order without question.Only Adam and the old butler were left in the room. Adam began reading the report given to him. “You said he was a beggar, right?”“Yes, Young Master.”“What’s he doing begging with these credentials?”“The world isn’t fair on everyone, Young Master,” the old butler spoke, almost in a pitiful tone. “His aunt
The news of Adam Conreid, the CEO of Conreid Lore, dying in a car accident shook the whole state. The scene of his sports car hitting the barricade and rolling was repeatedly played on the news channels.Conreid Schools, Conreid Colleges, Conreid Institutes, and Conreid Training Academies that were all part of the Conreid Lore all announced three days holidays.However, Leher, the old butler of the Conreid family, later held a press meet and announced that Adam was still fighting death.Thirty nine days went by silently, and no one expected that the youngest lion of the Conreid family would finally make an entrance on the fortieth day.In the Conreid Headquarters, on the seventh floor assigned for the Education Department.“Why isn’t he here yet?”“Because he’s probably dead.”‘But, didn’t their butler say he’s alive?”“Obviously, he was minimizing the stock damage by spewing bullshit. They must have already buried his body somewhere secretly. They are not obligated to answer the gene
