Remi paced back and forth in the living room looking constantly at the time on her mobile phone. Jonathan Wood who had been looking at his now real lover Remi Long was with a frown until he finally sighs; he had been observing Remi for long minutes now and believed the woman should stop or she’ll make herself dizzy if she continued to do it.

“What are you so worried about? She’s probably never going here,” Jonathan Wood said rolling his eyes knowing that his girlfriend was getting worried about Veronica Chime’s late arrival. It had already been more than two hours since Remi and Veronica talked to each other and now no matter how Remi called, the actress wouldn’t pick up.

After learning a lot of things from his childhood friend Mo Tian Zi and from some of Remi’s Story, Jonathan developed prejudice against the actress and he didn’t really want his girlfriend to hang out with such an ill-natured woman.

Standing up from his sitting position, Jonathan soon caught Remi in his arms. “Come on, it’s late. Let’s just sleep. Besides if she arrives I’ll just ask Marie to let her in and then you two can talk tomorrow.” Jonathan cooed, kissing Remi’s forehead. It may have been just a week since they’ve met, and Jonathan might have been known to fall in love and fall out of love too easily but right now, he felt like he could really be with her, with Remi. Remi doesn’t know his real identity and it was a refreshing experience for him, and Jonathan couldn’t help but fall.

“I’m really worried. I have a bad feeling about this whole situation Jonathan,” Remi said worriedly. Jonathan might have been right about Veronica not coming but from the way Veronica sounded earlier, Remi truly believed that her friend needed a companion. And now that she’s suddenly unable to be contacted. It sounded so suspicious to her.

“I’m sure she’s fine. Didn’t you say she’s tough? Then believe in her, and tomorrow we can go ahead and look for her if you want to.” Jonathan suggested which Remi soon understands and nodded. They were about to go back to their room when one of the maids came to them and informed them that there was someone at the gate that wanted to see Ms. Remi Long.

“Oh, is it Vicky?” Remi beamed relief, she was about to run towards the door when the maid said it was not Veronica Chime.

“The man said he was Ms. Long’s younger brother,” the maid said and Remi’s eyes quickly went wide. Her younger brother? She only had one younger brother and she heard from her parents five years ago that the young man disappeared and never came back. However, despite his disappearance the young man still manages to send money to  their parent’s savings account and sometimes sends parcels as if he had been looking at their family all this time so somehow even though he was not coming back home, they at least knew that he was fine.

“Fyre?” Remi mumbled still in disbelief. Seeing this, Jonathan ordered the maid to let the man in but only after they checked whether or not he had something dangerous on him.

“We can look on the intercom, you can confirm if he was really your brother or not,” Jonathan suggested which Remi nodded again. They quickly went to the intercom that had a small screen on it but Remi could clearly see the familiar figure of her younger brother who she hadn't been able to see for 5 years.

“This brat!” Remi whispered.

“Is he really your younger brother?” Jonathan asked in disbelief. It had only been days since he brought Remi to a private place and no one knew of his location as he was hiding from certain people as well. Only Tian Zi knew he was at this house and he also didn’t think Remi told this man so he wondered how this younger brother ever found out Remi was at this mansion.

“Yes, can you let him in?” Remi said in defeat. 

“Do you trust him? Are you sure he’s not someone dangerous?” Jonathan asked suspiciously, hesitating whether to let the man in or not. Remi sighs again and he understood why Jonathan didn’t trust his younger brother.

“Yeah, if you’re worried why he found us then don’t worry, he had always been good at technology and he had no trouble finding me in 5 minutes. If you compare him to someone, he’s like your boss, Mo Tian Zi. They both have talent in hacking and programming and it’s really difficult to find privacy with him following you.” Remi explained frustratingly, his younger brother had always been a computer addict at 12 and he played a lot in computer cafés that they wondered where the young man got his money.

After the young man said he was making assignments and projects for his classmates to have money, it didn’t bother Remi and their parents anymore and just let Fyre do what he wanted to do.

But later when he was 18, when their father needed money to save the little land they have from being taken by the bank, his little brother suddenly gave her money and told her that he hacked a bank and transferred the money to her account. Remi was so shocked back then but Remi chose to stay silent and use the money to save their little farm. 

Remi also didn’t want to make Fyre feel bad that time and it was pretty too late to give back the money as well. If she returned the money to the bank, she will either be accused of stealing the money or her younger brother being sent to prison at 18 so she lied that she borrowed money from Veronica at that time.

Coincidentally, that time was also the year when Remi decided to leave her hometown to come and be Veronica’s manager so although their parents didn’t agree at first; they ended up agreeing because Veronica helped them. And then when she left, a month later, this little brother of him also left leaving a single letter saying he won’t go to college and will just help the family through the way he can. And since then he was indeed helping the family. Their mother and father were upset and reluctant to use the money he sent but this little brother of his truly helped their family that Remi felt bad sometimes because she couldn’t even send money on a regular basis even when she was the older child.

“Oh, is that true?” Jonathan asked amused because there were not many people that he knew that had the same talent as Tian Zi.

“Yeah, I’m really sorry. It has been 5 years since he had gone missing. I didn’t know where he was up until now, he must have found out I was living with a man so he came to see me.” Remi apologized.

“Okay, I’ll let him in then.” Jonathan smiled and then pressed on the intercom. He simply said “let him in,” and the guards didn’t check the young man anymore. And then, later on, the maid was already opening the door for the visitor.

The moment Remi’s eyes landed on a young man just the same height as her; she dashed towards him and soon struck a chop on his neck. The strike didn’t hurt the young man too bad but it was enough to make him yell in pain. After all, it was a technique Jonathan taught her as simple self-defense.

“You Brat! You went missing five years ago and now you’ll just show your face to me like this?” Remi yelled before hugging her little brother, catching him off guard.

“Owww! When did you learn to hurt people, Remi? You never hit me before!” The young man complained pushing Remi away and massaged his neck which’s now slightly throbbing in pain. 

“Call me older sister and you… you deserve that, where have you been all this time?! Mom and Dad were so worried about you. They said you were sending a huge amount of money and worried whether you’re involved in illegal things and be killed or arrested one day. Additionally, they were worried about your recessive condition.” Remi yelled again. 

Fyre Long, he was born an Omega, he was considered Submissive because he had very little to none pheromones but sometimes in special occasions and completely random, his pheromones surges up. There was one time when his pheromones surged up at school when he was high school and it caused a lot of trouble to all Alpha and Omega students and teachers. That’s why from then on he was in constant treatment. Doctors said he was the kind of Omega that was prone and would cause danger. 

So when he left home leaving a message that he wasn’t going to college, they were all so worried but couldn’t do anything because he was gone. They tried reporting him as a missing person to the police but they couldn’t find him. And then 5 months later, he just suddenly transferred a huge amount of money to Dad’s account and then sent a letter. They almost lost hope because the police said not to find him anymore because he was someone who doesn’t want to be found.

“I told you guys from the letters that I was fine. Jeez. Anyway, I came here to warn you about that guy over there!” Fyre said and directed his finger towards Jonathan. Remi looked at Fyre and then at Jonathan confused.

“Don’t you believe anything he says to you! He’ll only hurt you as soon as he gets what he wants from you, Remi!” Fyre said, baffling Jonathan because a little man was actually pointing at him and accusing him of something he was never even planning to do.

“Fyre, what are you saying? J-Jonathan is a good man. Although he’s younger than me, that doesn’t mean he’ll hurt me. Besides what would he want from someone like me who doesn’t have anything to give?” Remi tried pacifying his little brother.

“Duh! Stupid Remi! You’re a virgin at 29, an Alpha like this bastard would die just to get a taste of you! Don’t you dare let him touch you,” Fyre roared and as soon as Remi heard what her little brother just said, her face suddenly turned red.

chuckles “Too late,” Jonathan interrupted and walked towards his lover who’s currently turning red. “I already had a taste for straight three days now,” Jonathan taunted pulling Remi into his arms and soon leaned down to peck on her lips. Seeing this, Fyre’s eyes went wide as he quickly pulled Remi’s arm and soon hid her behind him.

“You bastard! Remi is not someone you can play with! Go back to your palace and play with your whores or play with that arrogant friend of yours.” Fyre shouted.

“Oh My God! That’s enough for you two. Fyre, Jonathan and I never went far from kissing so calm your ass down. I told you he’s a good man even though he’s full of shit sometimes but I assure you he’s good. Also, Jonathan, can you stop teasing him. It’s dangerous when his emotions aren’t stable.” Remi quickly said before something out of hand happened between the two.

“Tsk. He’s that Arrogant Prince’s friend! There’s no way he’s as good as you said he was. I say he’s pretending like he has been from the very beginning. Remi, you are so easy to deceive!” Fyre said, crossing his arms.

“What are you talking about? Who is this arrogant Prince? And what pretending are you talking about?” Remi sighs and asks frustratingly.

“Mo Tian Zi! the arrogant and overbearing Prince of the Mo Corporation and that real prince, Alexander Jonathan Wood!”  Fyre revealed confusing Remi even more. 

“You’re confusing me Fyre,” Remi admitted as she looked at Jonathan who seemed to have been shocked hearing her younger brother as well.

“Remi, Can I talk to your younger brother in private? I assure you I won’t hurt him. I just have something I want to tell him and it will only take a few minutes,” Jonathan suddenly said, Remi was stunned and was reluctant to agree but before she could say something Fyre scuffs.

“Scared? Okay, I’ll listen to what you have to say.” Fyre said with a victorious smile. Jonathan nodded in gratitude. He walked towards Remi and kissed her on her lips again and whispered assurance. Remi then quickly understand and later he saw the two walking through the door leading towards the library and soon disappeared behind it.
