“Jack, she is pregnant. She needs our help.”
“No, Amelia. She will not stay here. Do you imagine what will happen when paparazzi find out about her pregnancy? I should think about our family’s name too. Our family name was never involved in any kind of scandal, and it will not be too. This is not up for discussion. She is going.” My father said coldly.
“Ok, Dad.” I murmured.
I put on a black suit and a navy blue shirt. I was going to the company today. After those New York photos, my father increased his pressure on me. I grabbed my phone and left.
I got in my car.
George stopped the car in front of the company. I got out of the car and went into the company. When I walked into my room, my secretary stopped me.
“Mr. Taptiklis is waiting for you in his office, sir.” She informed me with a flirtatious voice.
I nodded and went to his room. I knocked on the door and walked in.
“Good morning, Dad.”
“Good morning, Eros. Sit down.”
I nodded and sat down. He handed me two files.
“You will deal with these projects. And do not forget, these projects are important for our company. Be responsible.”
I grabbed the files and went to my office.
It was evening when I left the holding. Once I arrived home, I took my jacket off and went to the kitchen. I made some coffee for myself.
There was a knock on the door. I placed the cup down on the table and headed towards the door. I opened the door. Alexia was standing at the door, smiling at me.
“Hey, did you miss me?”
She had been in Spain for two weeks.
“Maybe.” I replied, smirking.
She wrapped her arms around my neck and brushed her lips against me. I wrapped my arms around her waist and pulled her inside, closing the door behind her.
I woke up and went to the bathroom. I took a shower. After taking a shower, I wrapped the towel around my waist and walked out.
“Good morning.” She said with a sleepy voice.
“Morning.” I murmured as I was going to my walk in closet.
“Eros, what are these?” She hissed and got up. I stopped and turned around.
“What?” I asked with questioning eyes.
“There are nail scratches on your back. And I am sure, it is not mine.” She snarled angrily.
I looked at my back in the mirror.
I shook my head and sighed.
“And?” I said, bored.
“And?! What the hell with you, Eros? Do you think I will forgive you all the time? Firstly, that slut in New York, and now another one? Or is it hers?” She shouted at me.
I clenched my fist. I was angry. How dare she call Anna a slut!
“Do not dare to call her this again! And do not act like you love me. You use me for your career. And I use you for my pleasure. You win. I win.” I snapped.
She slapped me. I grabbed her wrist tightly.
“If you dare to repeat it, I will make sure you will not find any job all around the world. And since when have you started to care about whom I sleep with? Do not say that you thought you were the only one in my life. I know you know about all my flings.” I snapped and pushed her away slightly.
“I…I love you.”
“Hey, stop there. This is bullshit. You do not love me.” I snapped. I ran my hand through my hair and sighed. “Put your clothes on and leave.” I turned around.
When I wanted to go to the walk-in closet, she stopped me, grabbing my wrist.
“Do you think I will let you be happy with that slut? Do you think I do not notice? You have even written songs for her, Eros!”
I pulled my arm away.
“Alexia, get out of my damn house!” I barked at her.
She started to pick up her clothes from the floor. She put on her clothes.
“You and your little slut will pay for it!” She snapped and walked out. I sighed, running my hands through my hair.
Today, I was going to Greece.
I hugged my mother. I pulled back as I asked. “Where is Dad?”
My mother did not say anything, giving me an apologetic look. I gave her a fake smile.
“He doesn’t want to see me. I am really sorry, Mom. I was a fool. I shouldn’t trust him, but I fell in love with him.” I said. I couldn’t hold my tears anymore.
My mother hugged me. “Shh, Anna. Do not cry. Everything will be fine. Your father will forgive you. It doesn’t matter how old you are; you are always our little daughter. And he is worried about you as much as me. He is angry at himself as well because he couldn’t protect you. But he loves you. He has even found you an obstetrician there.” She pulled back.
What? I looked at my mother with questioning eyes.
“Yes, my dear. Now pull yourself together. Do not stress my grandchild out.” She said, smiling, rubbing my stomach. I smiled at her.
“Thank you, Mom.” I hugged her.
The plane landed in Athens. A driver was waiting for me. I got in the car. I was going to stay at the hotel. This was our co-partner’s hotel, Uncle Loukas’. The driver stopped the car in front of the hotel. I got out of the car and went in.
After taking a shower, I rested a little. Then I changed my clothes and went out. I wanted to see Athens. I took a taxi. I was looking through the window. This was a beautiful city.
Suddenly, I saw a familiar face on the large billboard.
“Stop the car!” I demanded.
The driver pulled the car over. I looked at the billboard. It was him. Emmett. My heartbeats fastened. There was something written on the billboard in Greek.
“Could you translate these?” I asked, pointing to the billboard.
“It is a concert billboard. He is the most famous singer in Greece. My daughter is his fan too. His name is Eros.”
I could believe what I heard. His name was Eros. He even lied to me about his name.
I was not feeling well anymore. I felt dizzy.
