“Come closer,” Emma urged.

Henry stepped closer to her and she whispered something to his ear.

“Do you think that such a thing would work?”Henry asked.

“Yes, you just need to have patience,” Emma smirked. “I can’t allow her to gain my parents’ affection and become the next queen,”

“Good, I’m impressed with your determination. I’m sure that our teamwork will be excellent,” Henry smiled.

“Partners,” He brought his hand forward for a handshake.

“Partners,” Emma said with a smile and shook his hand.

“Why are both of you shaking hands? Is there something I should know,” Polly asked, looking suspiciously at them.

Emma and Henry quickly released each other’s hands and became nervous.

“What we are doing isn’t any of your business. Why are you even at home, why aren’t you in school?” Emma yelled.

Polly grew more suspicious, but she didn’t say anything else. She didn’t want to get anyone angry and add to her problems.

“I’m not feeling well, that’s why I’m at home. But you both can continue what you were doing, I am heading somewhere,” Polly mouthed, before walking away from the sitting room.

As she left, Emma frowned.

“I h@ťě seeing her fat face everywhere. I don’t understand why Amelia can’t keep her useless friends to herself. She had to bring that imbecile to live here and disrupt my peace,” Emma spat.

“I hope your plan will work,” Henry sighed.

“It will,”

“Just avoid being so vocal about everything—”

Henry suddenly kissed her lips and her eyes widened. He sucked her lips and held her face.

Emma closed her eyes and kissed him back.

After kissing for a while, Henry pulled away.

“You look so much like her, you almost taste like her,” Henry commented, taking his thumb to her lips.

Emma gritted her teeth and suddenly slapped his face hard.

“Don’t you dare compare me to Amelia again! I’m better than her and if you want me, then you’ve got to forget about her,” Emma shouted.

“Take it easy, you don’t have to get so worked up,” Henry sighed, rubbing his cheek.

“Wh@ťěver. Don’t you dare try that $h|t again!” Emma glared at him and walked away.

She h@ťěd it when people compared her to Amelia. She h@ťěd her, she h@ťěd that impostor.


Polly went to her favorite restaurant. It was a bit expensive, but she always ordered the cheapest things.

She simply wanted to feel good about herself and after what Jerome did to her, she had to make herself happy.

Upon entering the restaurant, she walked to a table and ordered a bottle of water which was the cheapest thing in the restaurant.

The bottle of water was brought to her table in a few minutes and she began sipping it happily. The restaurant felt cozy and welcoming until Jerome and a few of his friends walked in.

Jerome spotted her and he was filled with hatred. He walked to her and his friends followed.

“What are you doing here? Cow,” Jerome insulted.

Polly swallowed hard but decided to ignore him.

“I’m talking to you, fatty!” He snapped, snatching the water bottle from her.

“Give me back my water bottle,” Polly mouthed. “I don’t want any trouble,”

“You’re a despicable person,” Jerome spat.

“Quit calling me names. You were the one that wooed me. Why are you suddenly insulting and harassing me? It’s not like I begged for your attention!” Polly sprang up, yelling.

The boys were stunned by her reaction, but Jerome wasn’t pleased.

“Yeah, I made the biggest mistake of my life trying to be with you. I’m glad that I realized your true character before committing a mistake,” Jerome scowled.

“Good for you!” Polly exclaimed.

She began walking away from the table, but Jerome didn’t want her to escape so easily.


Polly began running, but then she bumped into a firm chest and whimpered. She stepped back and rubbed her forehead in pain.

She looked up and saw Dominic. His face was cold as usual but also handsome.

“I’m so sorry,” She apologized with tears filling her eyes. “I didn’t mean to bump into you,”

“Are you flirting with that man too? Acting like a cheap prostitute!” Jerome spat from where he was. “Isn’t he a little too old for you? Shameless bìtch?”

Tears slipped from Polly’s eyes as she kept looking at Dominic’s handsome face made her heart weirdly skip a beat.


“Are you just going to let him call you a bîtch?” Dominic asked, interested in watching a brawl.

“No,” Polly shook her head.

She turned back and rushed to Jerome. She landed a heavy punch on his face and blood flew out of his mouth.

Jerome immediately fell to the floor, feeling dizzy.


His friends worriedly attended to him and Polly felt a bit proud of herself.

As she turned to look back, Dominic wasn’t in the restaurant again.

‘Where did he go? He looked so handsome,’ Polly thought, unknown to her that Dominic was far worse than Jerome.

Later that afternoon, Amelia headed to the supermarket instead of a maid who had an emergency. She wanted to help, so she decided to go on her behalf.

Amelia was almost at the supermarket, but she had to pass a lonely path, As she walked through the path, she heard footsteps behind her.

She stopped walking and turned back, but there was no one behind her.

“What was that?”Amelia asked herself,then sighed.

As she continued walking, someone suddenly grabbed her arm and slammed her back against the wall.

Amelia gasped and was so frightened by the sudden appearance of the masked man that has been stalking her for weeks. However, he never followed her in the day.

This was so surprising.

“What do you want from me?” Amelia cried.

The masked man put a knife close to her neck and snarled, “Where is my money?”

“What money?” Amelia asked in fear.

“The money that you owe me, Emma. You can’t just spend my money without giving me what I need and believe that you can escape from me,” He sneered.

“I’m not Emma,” Amelia stuttered in tears.

“Are you crazy? Give me my money,” He was unaware that Emma had a twin sister.

“Please don’t hurt me. I’m Emma’s twin sister,” Amelia sobbed.

“Give me my money at the count of ten. One, two, three…seven eight, nine ten!!!” The masked man growled and raised the knife to stab her.
