Chapter 51 Part I

I knocked on the door.

"Come in."
John's voice pierced through from the other side.

I turned the knob and opened his office door.

He welcomed me with a smile, standing up from his chair.
"Good afternoon, Mrs. Sterling."

I smiled, 
"Good afternoon, John."

I walked into his office and sat down on one of the couches placed in front of his office desk.

John held a file as he made his way towards me and sat on the couch opposite side of me.

"So, what did you need to talk about?"
I asked, my eyes focused on the file as he placed it down on the coffee table.

"Well- Oh! Would you like a drink?"

I smiled, "no, it's okay. Thanks."

He smiled.
"Lilia,"

I returned his smile.
"Hm?"

"Shawn told me that your bodyguard-"

"You mean the guy Shawn hired to watch me?"
I laughed.

"Yeah...."

I laughed.
"It's okay, I understand why."

He smiled and continued.
"The man works under me and his reports are directly sent to me then I send them to Shawn."

He paused, observing my expression.

I wore a blank face. 
I didn't know why he was telling me this.

His eyes tried to find a response from me. 

"Why are you telling me this?"
I straight out asked him.

John wasn't a man of chit-chatts.
He said what he needs and does what he needs. 
No more and no less.
That's the kind of man he is.

"Well,"
He said, his right hand picked up the file on the coffee table. 

He turned the file open and threw down the contents on the table
For me to see. 

It took me a while to process and take in the contents.

When I did, 
my heart stopped.

Chapter 51 Part II

My heart stopped from the multiple pictures that John put on the coffee table. 

It was pictures of

me.

Along with a middle-aged man,

Mr. Cain. 

"Lilia,"
He called my name and I met his gaze.

"What is this?"

"I'm supposed to ask that."
He gave me a weak smile, trying to comfort me.

I looked down at the pictures again,
Then at John.
I gulped.
"Does Shawn know?"

He intertwined his hands and clenched them tight together.
"No, I haven't told him yet."

"Don't tell him."
I followed his response quick.

"I don't intend to but you have to stop meeting with him."
John sighed.
"Lilia, I'm saying this for your own good. You know I am."

"I know."
I looked down at the floor.
"But, I can't."

"Lilia,"
He spoke softly,
"You can't get involved with those kinds of people anymore."

I didn't respond.

I only had one response,
And surely, 
He won't like it.

"You're going to ruin your relationship with your family and that includes Shawn.
You can't risk it."

I gulped and sighed.

I looked at him straight in the eyes.

"John,
I know you're worried but,
Those are my people
And I'm doing this for my family."
