Chapter 10, I hope you enjoy it :)

Chapter 10, I hope you enjoy it :) He went out of the nightclub and headed to the ground floor, where the hotel lobby was located.

"Iñigo!" His aunt Natalie called him, the moment she saw him stepping out of the elevator.

"Aunt Natalie. Good evening." He said, while kissing his aunt's cheeks.
"What are you doing here? When did you arrive? Why didn't you call me first? Is everybody okay?" Natalie Valiente fired too many questions to her nephew. She was suprised of his sudden visit. As a vice president of Monteiro Land Group Incorporated, Iñigo was a very busy young man. Since he earned his Engineering degree, he was unstoppable. He managed their family business brilliantly and mostly focused in field works. He didn't even have time for a holiday.

"Tell me, what's wrong." His aunt insisted. She sensed that something was wrong.
He breathed in deeply and shook his head. "I just need a room to rest. I want to be alone if you don't mind." His shoulders slumped and his head were down bent.

His aunt already understood him. She knew Iñigo, he preferred to be silent and lick his own wounds alone. Like the last time he was troubled, upset and so miserable.
"The last time you looked like this was five years ago, because a girl."

He raised his heart-rending eyes to her and rubbed his stiffed neck.

"Oh God, it's about that Petrakis girl again isn't it? When are you going to get over her?" Was all she said before showing him to the hotel's presidential suite.

Iñigo stayed in a very big and elegant presidential suite with two large high-ceilinged bedrooms, hi-jet jacuzzi, a provate pool, a well-equipped exercise room and a study room. But he was ablivious to all the facilities offered in his room, he just went directly to the bar area and took a bottle. He lied on the couch.

He felt pain, anger, jealously and regret. The feeling of doom and worthlessness was too much to bear. He could feel his heart was ripped out and stomped on. His male ego bruised.
He regretted not telling Chloe the truth about her father's threats five years ago. He failed to make her understand that they were too young and needed time to mature physically and emotionally. He should have told her everything then instead of being a coward.

She was right, I should have told her everything because she would have understood then. She loved me. But now... it's too late. I lost her

He drank two bottles and then well asleeop. He tried to drown all his sorrows by drinking.

The following night, a couple opened the room that Iñigo occupied, using the master key. Iñigo was lying on a couch, looking so flush.

"Iñigo, for Christ sake! Two bottles, what are you trying to do? Kill yourself?" Rafael Valiente shouted at Iñigo.
"Leave me alone." Iñigo murmured drowsily.

"Get up, now! Or I'm going to call an ambulance. What happened to you? You didn't even bother to eat." His aunt Natalie yelled at him.
"Stop shouting... you are giving me a headache." Iñigo groaned and peered at them.

"I will shout at you until you come to your sense. You are killing yourself, get up and take a bath then eat! You smell so ugh... I'm sure if Chloe see you now, she would be very disappointed of you."
Iñigo eyed his aunt furiously. The mention of Chloe's name made him open his eyes widely.

"Go, take a bath. I'll call the boutique downstairs to send you some clothes."

Iñigo went to the bathroom and vomited, he felt terrible and his head throbbed. He had a quick shower and dressed up for dinner.

He had dinner with his aunt and uncle in the hotel's fine dining restaurant. His aunt gave him a pill that relieved his nausea, drowsiness and severe headache.
Iñigo has a sincere talk with his uncle Rafael afterwards. They were having coffe in the hotel lounge, while listening to the soft music of a piano. He told his uncle about Chlo. His uncle Rafael listened to him earnestly and gave him some advices.

Iñigo felt so relieved after his talk with his uncle. The misery he felt was instantly replaced with faith and hope.

The following day, a chopper took Iñigo back to their hotel in Santa Barbara. He was in the lobby waiting for the elevator when he took out a calling card from his wallet. He dialled the number on his phone.

"Hello?" A woman on the other line answered.

"Hello Brenda. This is Iñigo Monteiro. I want you to cater in our hotel tonight. A romantic dinner. Make it very special." He said, empasizing the word 'very special.'
"Okay, sure Mr. Monteiro, my pleasure. Thank you so much." Brenda said happily.

Finally, her wish to cater in any luxurious hotel came true. She promised herself to make a good impression on tonights dinner. She would do anything to please Mr. Iñigo Monteiro. It was a chance of a lifetime.
It would help her food catering business to prosper and attract more customers, especially in the elite level. She hoped and prayed that she could expand her food business soon. She had been alonce since her mother died. Her food catering business was her bread and butter, as well as of her underpaid assistants, who remained loyal to her.

Iñigo was wistling when he entered the penthouse. His uncle Rafael helped him realize that he should never give up, and continue to fight for Chloe no matter how much she hurt him. He loved her, and he would never stop loving her. He touched the small elongated velvet box inside his pants front pocket. A gift he bought at his aunt Natalie's jewellery shop before he retired to bed last night. He was so excited for their romantic dinner. He promised to do anything to win her heart again.
He directly went outside her bedroom. He knocked on her door, but nobody answered. He contemplated that she had an early start.

Later I'm going to surprise her. He said to himself with enthusiasm.

At exactly five in the afternoon, Iñigo went to the lobby to take the elevator to Chloe's office. It was a long and tiring day for him. A lot of pending work and business transactions needed to finish immediately because of his absence yesterday. He had to take aspirin to ease his headache.

But despite his hectic day, his adrenaline kept him energized because of his surprise romantic dinner for Chloe. He didn't know if she would be surprised, happy or angry.

He just had to keep his fingers crossed. He would do anything to win her back.
Iñigo saw a blond-haired man at the lobby.

He was wearing khaki pants and a white shirt. He had a travelling bag with him. Obviously a guest. He went nearer to the guest to tell him that the hotel was not yet operating.

"Good evening. Are you looking for a room?" Iñigo said to the man.
The man smiled and shook his head. "No, I'm looking for my girlfriend." His Australian accent was so evident.

"Your girlfriend?" Iñigo frowned, his heart suddenly throbbed faster.

"Yes. She's working here. Actually, she's a part owner of this hotel, her name is Chloe Petrakis. Do you know her?"
Iñigo was surprised, intensely looking at his rival with stormy eyes. What is he doing here? He thought furiously.

"Yes of course, I know her." Iñigo said in an authoritative voice, trying to control the rage building up inside him.

The man smiled and extended his hand for a handshake. "By the way, I'm Martin Lambert, Chloe's boyfriend."

Iñigo ignored his hand. He looked like a predator with forward facing eyes focusing on his prey, ready to kill.
Martin coughed and obviously irritated by Iñigo rude behaviour. He put his hand on his side and grinned.

"So you are the great Iñigo Monteiro, Chloe's ex-boyfriend. It's good to see the man, in the flesh, who unmercifully broke her heart five years ago." Martin said with venom in his words.
With rage, Iñigo clenched his fist and ready to punch Martin when the elevator door suddenly opened.

Both men looked at the single occupant who stepped out of the elevator. She looked startled in the very anxiety producing situation in front of her.

"Martin.... I.... Iñigo." Chloe gasped.
