Episode 63

Nelson’s POV

I’ve been by Olivia’s side since morning without taking anything. I just want her to open her eyes and look at me even if it’s just for five seconds.

I haven’t even had time to interrogate those guys that were captured by my bodyguards because I haven’t gone home ever since Olivia has been in the hospital.

If I go home now, I might just do something I will come to regret later because of Olivia.

Chang Min has just been staring into space ever since he got here. I heard he was the closest to Min Jin before they got separated.
He must be really affected.

I would have gone home to deal with those guys but I don’t want to leave Olivia’s side because of what happened recently.

I guess I have no choice now because I want to get to the root of the matter as soon as possible and hopefully, I would have a lead on who attacked Olivia in the hospital.

Thankfully, there are armed men specifically assigned to guard Olivia’s ward

I got into my car and drove to my mansion. Along the way, I bought a really cold drink to calm my nerves so I don’t make rash decisions.

Immediately I got home, I went into the torture room with my phone and the remaining cold drink.

“I’m going to ask you guys few and simple questions and I want you to answer me truthfully without wasting my time if you know going value your life” I said sternly facing the guys.

“Yes sir” they replied shakily.

They are probably scared because this is the first time they will be seeing me this close and I always smile in public.

“Good. Why did you attack Olivia and I?”

“We were sent by someone sir” one of them answered

“Who sent you?” I asked them calmly

They stared at each other for a while before one managed to talk.

“We were hired by ma’am Stephanie” he answered

I stared at him like he had just said the most absurd thing on earth. Jumping into conclusion isn’t the right thing to do now, it’s probably another Stephanie.

“Which Stephanie are you talking about?”

“The popular model of course” one of them answered

What are these guys saying? Are they trying to fool me or what? Stephanie must have learnt her lesson by now so there’s no way she would try to hurt me or Olivia.

“I’m going to ask you for the last time. Who sent you?”

“It’s ma’am Stephanie. Why would we think of lying to you when our lives are in your hands?”

“Alright then. Thanks for the information but that still doesn’t mean you will go freely.

You hurt me and Olivia so you will pay dearly for that but not to worry, I won’t hand you over to the police.” I concluded

“Thank you sir Nelson” they said in unison while I just nodded my head and went back to the hospital.

Stephanie won’t go freely this time, I will make sure she pays.

Park Min Shin’s POV

I haven’t been able to eat anything since morning, same with Jimin.

Chang Min hasn’t even drank water ever since we got here yesterday, I know he misses min Jin a lot and seeing her in that condition must be hurting him so much.

I’m also in pain. Seeing my daughter lying helplessly on the bed with different wires connected to her body breaks my heart. Who would believe this was the same girl that won the K-Pop competition few weeks ago?

Olivia please wake up. If not for anything, think about me. I miss you so much!

I won’t ask for anything else if you can just open your eyes and smile at me.

“Doctor, how is she doing now?” Nelson asked as soon as he saw the doctor. Looks like he went home before

“She’s responding to treatment but she needs to be placed under close observation for now” the doctor said while the nurse that was with him scribbled some things down.

Nelson just nodded his head and the doctor left.

I kept staring at Olivia from where I sat while Nelson sat beside her and held her hands.

He’s beginning to lose himself and I fear it will get out of hand if Olivia doesn’t wake up soon.

Everyone of us were lost in our own world when we suddenly heard a cough and just like we were programmed, we turned towards Olivia and discovered she was trying to open her eyes weakly.

Am I seeing things clearly? My Olivia is awake?

I quickly stood up and went closet to her to confirm it.

Truly she was awake with her eyes staring weakly at the room. After a while, she closed her eyes back and the deep sleep took over her again.

I know she will wake up soon and I will be the happiest person on Earth when that happens.

Episode 64

Olivia’s POV

I woke up with a throbbing headache to find myself in a hospital. For how long have I been here? Judging from the environment, it’s evening already.

I turned around to take in my surroundings when the door suddenly opened. Ohh…. It’s Nelson.

If not for how weak I felt, I would have jumped on him because I missed him a lot.

He walked closer to the bed and kept staring at me like he saw a ghost.

“Olivia, are you really awake?” he asked while I nodded my head slowly.

He ran to me and pulled me in a tight hug with tears in his eyes. Now that I look closely, Nelson looks somehow thing, I just hope he hasn’t been starving himself because of me.

After a while he pulled out of the hug and started checking my body.

“Are you okay now?” he asked gently

“Kind of. I’m still weak and I feel pain on the side of my stomach”

“Sorry about that. If you hadn’t taken the bullet for me, you won’t be in this condition” he said with his head bowed in regret

“Don’t say that. If I hadn’t taken the bullet for you, you probably won’t be alive now and you know what it means. I might not survive it”

“But still, you almost died here. Promise me you won’t do it again” he said looking really serious

“I can’t promise you that, I’m sorry” I said and laid on the bed backing him

“Olivia please, you know how important you are to me. Just promise me you won’t risk your life for mine again” he said again but I kept quiet this time.

He can risk his life for me but I can’t risk mine for him? That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard.


“Nelson please, I’m having a headache and you’re disturbing me”

“I promise not to disturb you after you promise me not to risk your life again”

“Should I leave the ward for you” I said sitting up and facing him this time

“N.. no” he stuttered

“Good. If you don’t want that to happen, then stop pestering me and let me rest”

“Fine then!” he said and walk away probably angrily

I really don’t understand him. Do I have to do everything the way he wants it? If that’s what he wants, then maybe we should just end the relationship.

I laid back on the bed and slept tiredly.

Nelson’s POV

I kept kicking things after I left Olivia’s ward. When I saw she was awake, I was really happy but now I’ve ruined everything with my own hands.

I should have left the discussion until she gets better and now I’ve made her angry.

I know she also wants to be there for me just like I am for her but still, risking her life for me is too much because I don’t think I deserve it.

She has been separated from her parents for a long time and now, she’s trying to risk her life for me when she’s supposed to spend quality time with them and make up for lost time.

What exactly am I supposed to do to make her forgive me now? I went deep in thoughts for a while before something crossed my mind.

Olivia’s birthday is coming up in less than two weeks time, I can throw a surprise party for her. I just have to tell the doctor to retain her in the hospital until her birthday.

Yeah!! Perfect. I can’t wait to see the look on her face.

Wait! Did I just blush? Ahh… Olivia is making me go crazy. I can’t believe I blushed just because I imagined how the look on her face will be.

Park Chang Min’s POV

Nelson told me that Olivia woke up few minutes ago but she’s asleep now. Hopefully, we will see her tomorrow.

Sincerely, I’m really nervous. I will be facing Min Jin after 17 years, I don’t know how it will turn out.

*Next morning*

We all gathered round Olivia’s bed waiting for her to wake up, she’s definitely going to feel shy with the number of people present. Thankfully, Nelson is here for her.

After about 30 minutes of waiting, she finally opened her eyes. She yawned and stretched for a while before turning to probably take in her surroundings while I took my eyes to the floor like it was the most interesting thing to me at the moment.

I raised my head up to see Olivia staring at us with confusion written all over her face. She’s probably wondering why there are so many people.

She seem to have forgotten that she has two families. Her cute innocent eyes move from Nelson to the next person on and on until her eyes finally met mine.

I mentally said a prayer because of how nervous herself and she kept staring at me like something was wrong.

When I thought she was done staring, she asked a surprising question.

“Have we perhaps met before” she asked unsure of herself

“I don’t think so but you know I’m a model so maybe you’ve come across my picture or something” I answered shrugging

“No, that’s not it. I feel like we’ve met a long time ago. When our eyes met, I can’t explain what I felt”

“I think I understand why you felt that way” Mum said interrupting what I wanted to say

“The two of you were really close before Min Jin left us so I think the bond is still as strong as it was before. Remember you felt that way the first time we met too” Mom added while Olivia mouthed an o..

“Olivia, are you okay now? Are you feeling any pain anywhere? Should we call the doctor?” Olivia’s Mom, Katherine Logan threw many questions at Olivia

“Take it easy Mom, one question at a time” Olivia said smiling lightly. It seems she’s still feeling pains

I noticed Mom’s face turned sour when Olivia called Mrs. Katherine “Mom” but Mom quickly covered it up with a smile.

We chatted like a happy family for a while before the doctor said we should give Olivia space.

Only two people can see are and it’s one person at a time. Nelson decided to go in first while I go in as the next person. Both of us have just 30 minutes.

Nelson came out of the ward ten minutes later because he knows I and Olivia have a lot of things to catch up with.

I went inside and took slow, nervous steps towards Olivia.

“Hey!” I said taking a sit

“Are you feeling better now?” I asked holding her hand tenderly

“Y…. Yes I feel better” she stuttered

Silence set in for a while before I decided to break it.

“You know, ever since I discovered I might never see you again, I became a shadow of myself.

To people our there, I’m a young handsome model but my family knows I will never be complete until I see you again.

I never dated and I stayed totally away from girls because I was incomplete.

I prayed everyday to see you again even if it’s just once and I guess my prayers have been answered.

Once you get discharged, everyone of us will go back to Korea to start our lives as a complete family and make up for lost time”

“I don’t think that will happen. I’m okay living in England with my small happy family, I wouldn’t want to be called the President’s daughter.” she concluded looking away from me.

“Even if you don’t think about anyone else, think about me please”

“I’m sorry” she said and got in a sleeping position backing me.

This is going to be hard. Just when I thought I would be reunited with my lost sister.

I walked out of the ward with a straight face and drove straight to the hotel, I need a cold shower and probably few drinks to cool my nerves.
