Romagno House, 7:31 pm "Alex?" Daniel called out as he stepped inside the kitchen. "Where is she?" He asked himself while walking around the counter. When he saw a burnt mac and cheese on top of the counter, he scratched his head and muffled a laugh.

She's been cooking again. I told her not to.
The loud sound of the wind can be heard from the terrace. A young woman sitting on a wheelchair smiled a little after smelling the fresh air.

"There you are." A deep voice said from behind.
"I've been looking for you." Daniel said with a silent laugh.

The woman briefly turned her head and smiled. "Welcome back."

"Aren't you cold?" He asked. The woman only shook her head.
"It's nice looking at the scenery once in a while." She mumbled.

Daniel nodded his head in agreement. "True."

The woman shifted for a moment and sighed. "Can I ask you something, dear?"

"Sure, anything."
"How is Andrea? Is everything going well for her?" She asked with a shaking tone and Daniel just creased his eyebrows.

"Of course she is. I told you I'm taking care of her so don't worry." He reassured her.

"It's just that...I really want to see her so bad."

"I know. But you know what might happen, right?"
Alexandria looked down to her feet and slowly nodded. "Yes..."

Daniel looked at her in pity. "Alex...I'm sorry. I can't do anything about it."

Alexandria smiled. "No. It wasn't your fault. I'm grateful for everything you did, Danny."
"I hope I can see her soon. I can't wait to hold her again." Alexandria muttered.

"Yes. In time, dear. In time." Daniel walked towards her and put his arms on her shoulders.
He slowly pulled her out of her chair, earning a giggle from Alexandria.

"Now, let's go inside. It's cold in here and it's not good for you."

"Okay. Thank you darling."

Daniel smiled and placed a chaste kiss on her forehead.
Robert's House, 8:09 pm Liam finally arrived in front of his friend's house. As he stepped inside, the loud music immediately greeted him. He sighed and continued to walk through the corridor.

As much as he wants to stay back home, he just can't say no to their invitations (not because he likes it but because they'll bug him to death).
"Liam!" He heard Mike's familiar voice from outside the house. When he saw him, he reluctantly walked towards him and greeted him with a nod.

"Sup."

"And here I thought you wouldn't come." Mike laughed while slapping his shoulders.

Liam stared at him with a bored expression. "Yeah, thanks for forcing me."
Mike pouted. "What's wrong? Don't tell me you're grounded?" He teased and laughed at the same time.

"I might be." Liam answered truthfully. "If my stupid brothers find out I left the house, they'll surely kill me."

"Then, let's have fun before that tragic moment, shall we?" Mike handed him the beer he was holding. "Drink up!"
Sarah laughed heartily. “University was fun but it’s good to be back.”

“Yeah, it’s good to see you again. I bet Mike’s pretty proud of you.” Her friend said jokingly and Sarah laughed again, this time, a bit sarcastic.

“Righttt. He didn’t even pick me up at the airport.” She scoffed. “What a good brother he is.”

“Oh you know what he’s like. He’s a bit shy when it comes to his sister…”
Sarah looked behind her friend and pursed her lips. She returned her gaze to him and blushed.

“Have you seen Liam yet?” Sarah asked nervously. Her friend shook his head.
“Nope. But I heard some of the girls talking that he arrived already.” He scratched the back of his shoulders.

“Maybe he’s outside talking to Mike?”

Sarah nodded. “I-I’ll go say hi to him.” She walked pass him and went straight at the backyard.
Liam sighed for the nth time while he stared at the scenery. The ocean was calm and everything was quiet from where he was. The music already slowed down since everyone was inside the house already doing who knows what. When he heard footsteps from behind him, he didn’t even turn around to see who it was. Soon, Sarah appeared in front of him. She climbed the stairs with a bright smile on her face.

“Liam!”
Liam watched her pull the chair and sat across him. “Why’re you here?”

He shrugged his shoulders. “No reason.”

It’s probably because it’s loud inside and even though he loves to party, he hates the noise sometimes.

…Or maybe because he’s been thinking of a certain maid and the music ruined his mood.
“Uh, Liam, is something wrong?” Sarah asked when she noticed the man wasn’t paying attention to her.

“Yeah.” He turned to her and smiled a bit. “Congratulations on graduating.”

Sarah grinned. “Thanks.” She blushed a bit more as she continued to stare at his face. “It’s too bad that you didn’t come with me to the uni.”
Liam rolled his eyes. “Not interested.”

“Liam…” Sarah called out to him with worried eyes.

Liam shot her a glare. “I told you, I’m not interested.

Sarah gulped and cleared her throat. “S-sorry…”
He bit his lips and sighed. “Sorry…I’m a little bit…out of the mood.”

“No, it’s alright. I understand.”
“But still…I’m glad I’m back now.” Sarah smiled at him.

Liam stared at her.

“Yeah.”
Romagno Mansion, 9:08 am "It's good to see you're doing fine, Andrea." Daniel said after seeing Andrea's cheerful face.

"Yes, everything's well, Mr. Danny. Thank you again for giving me this job." Andrea mumbled, feeling a little bit embarrassed at what Daniel said.
Andrea looked at Daniel and thought how charming he was when in casual clothes. This was the first time she saw him in such outfit.

"Everyone's treating you well, right?" Daniel asked and Andrea nodded. She erased the moment when Liam acted a little bit mean to her.
"To tell you the truth, I'm a bit worried especially about Liam. He can be a little bit of a jerk when it comes to this kind of stuffs." Daniel said.

Andrea shook her head. "It's quite alright. I understand the situation and I don't blame him."

“Oh…so you know, ha.” Daniel said as he looked down on the floor.
Andrea gulped and asked herself if it’s alright to talk about it. “I’m sorry.”

“No, it’s alright. I’m glad that you’re already aware of the current situation.”

“Yeah…Hailey told me about it. I’m sorry for what happened to your parents, Mr. Danny.”

Daniel smiled a little bit. “I’m the one to blame.”
“When our parents died, I wasn't there to support my little brothers. That was one of the biggest mistakes in my life.” Daniel massaged his temples. “I should have been there to take care of my brothers. But instead…I did what I always do. Work.”

Andrea watched him as he talked in guilt. “I never expected Liam to turn to what he is right now. I couldn't do anything to help him. Unlike his other brothers…he was the one who was more sensitive and hurt at that time because…”
Andrea blinked when Daniel looked at her. “Because…?”

“No…it’s just that…the most special girl in his life was gone.”

She felt her chest suddenly tightened at what Daniel said. “G-girl?”
“Yeah. The only person he ever loved was forced to leave.” Daniel said. He cleared his throat. “Let’s not talk about something depressing.”

Andrea nodded her head but was still thinking who the girl was. So he’s been in love with someone.
Daniel looked at his wristwatch and sighed. “That kid. He’s still not home.”

“Uh…yeah.” Andrea muttered. She never saw Liam leave the house last night. Hailey just told her that he often does that so that he can attend his friend’s parties.
“Sir Liam, where have you been?” Hailey asked sternly.

Liam tried to ignore her gaze. “Somewhere.”

“You didn’t even tell anyone that you’re going out last night. Is it that hard to say something like that to us?”

Liam glared at her but decided not to talk.
"I..." Liam looked at her. He wanted so much to say how sorry he was for making her worry but he just can't.

He can't bear it when Hailey gets angry, especially to him since she's one of the few people who can calm him down.
Hailey sighed and forced out a gentle smile. "You must be tired. I'm already preparing breakfast. Your brothers already left for work."

Liam looked away. "Like I care." He whispered. Good thing Hailey didn't hear it or else, he'll be in big trouble.
He was about to go upstairs when Hailey stopped him.

"Oh, before I forgot, sir Daniel's here to visit you. You should tell him you're here already."

Liam pouted. "No way. I don't want to talk to him."

Hailey's stern look made him think twice. "Fine...I'll go."
Andrea looked at Liam who just entered the room.

Daniel turned around to see him. "Liam!"
Liam stayed quiet and just stared at his older brother.

Daniel walked around the couch to approach him. Anger was evident on his face but Liam ignored him.
"Where have you been?! You sneaked out last night again...without anyone's permission!" Daniel glared at his little brother. "How many times did I tell you to stop partying with your...friends?!"

"..."

"You reek of alcohol. God, you're so...!" Daniel closed his fist and groaned out loud.
"What I do with my life doesn't concern you, Daniel . It's none of your business." He said his name so bitterly it made Andrea flinch.

Hatred was coursing through him and she can clearly see it.

"You insolent brat! Don't you dare tell me that! Don't forget I'm still your brother and I have the right to tell you what's right and wrong!"
"Shut up. I don't want to listen to you anymore."

"Watch your mouth young man." Daniel warned but Liam ignored him. "For once...why can't be like Chris or Gavin?"

Liam finally flared up. "Don't you dare compare them to me!! I'm not like them, I'm not like you! Stop controlling my life and stop acting like my brother! I don't consider you my brother anymore so stay out of my life!!"

Daniel was taken aback at what Liam said. "You..."
Andrea finally stood up and stomped towards the two of them.

"Liam." She called his name. "Apologize to your brother."

"Stay out of this, woman!"

Andrea glared at him. "Whatever happened, he's still your brother so respect him. Now, apologize to him."
Liam was about to say something but when he saw how serious Andrea's face was, he just looked down and cursed again.

"I'm out of here." He walked out of the room and slammed the door so hard.
Daniel slowly walked tot he couch and sat down. He was speechless and he was hurt by Liam's words.

"Mr. Danny..."

"I'm sorry you have to see that." He mumbled.
"I just want the best for him..."

Andrea nodded. "We all do."
After calming his nerves, Liam found himself in a place where he always come when he's frustrated. A special place where he share with his best friend.

When the girl scolded him, he finally realized who she was.

'So she's really...'
"I've been looking everywhere." Andrea's voice interrupted Liam's silent monologue.

Liam smiled when he heard her finally familiar voice that kept bugging him the first time he heard it.
"Mind if I sit with you?" Andrea asked.

Liam shrugged his shoulders. "Do what you want."

"Okay." She walked around the bench and sat down. She stared at the marvelous sight and smiled a little. "It's so beautiful."

Liam stayed silent.
Andrea looked at Liam. There was sadness in his eyes and it feels like he's lost in his world.

"Sir Liam...why?" She simply asked the man who only looked at her in amusement.

"You asking me why is ironic." He said bitterly. Andrea bit her lips when she didn't understand what he meant by that.
Liam sighed and averted his eyes agaisnt her. "You're so unfair."

"I don't understand."

"Of course you don't. You won't understand, not now, not ever." Liam groaned and stood up. "I'll punish you for not remembering."
Andrea blushed. "Huh?" It sounded so naught yet so scary.

Liam smirked at him. "I know your deal with my brother."

Andrea paled at what he said.
He walked in front of her and tipped her chin, making her look straight into his eyes. She blushed at the intensity (and because Liam's so good looking she just can't help it) and tried to look away but she can't. Liam's smirk grew wider. "I'll be having so much fun making you remember who I am."
