Side story 2 At a casino in L.A
"Boss, I think we've a cheater here."
Hansel is 16 years old casino owner. His father is the most famous godfather in Thailand. Aside from opium, their business includes all kinds like lobbying and gambling.
Hansel looking at the adolescent boy in the security footage and has a desire to compete with him. Even though the boy was counting cards, he looked calm and collected. Hansel has met all kinds of men when he accepted the position of his father's family business successor.
"May I join the game?"
Matt took a look at the young gentleman. He looked pretty and gentle on the outside but Matt knows it's just a charade.
After 3 wins and 3 losses, Matt and Hansel recognized each as other's partner.
"Hi. My name is Hansel."
"Matthew, you can call me Matt."
From that day on, Matt and Hansel became brothers closer than biological ones. They started their business in stock market and later moved to technology industry. With both being the famous hackers, the security system they designed became quickly most sought after. The N&T company is co-funded by Matt and Hansel. Matt had wanted to make a living on his own without depending on his father and Hansel has wanted to wash his hands from his family business. They used their alias, Matt as Niel and Hansel as Troy. If you try to find the information on N&T company, you will only find Troy as the chairman and not even a photo can be found about him. The whole company is like a ghost, powerful and totally invisible in public eyes.
"Hansel, I've found her but I want you to find her current location."
After Mien left the hotel in Phuket, Matt begged Hansel to find her location. Hansel then simply tracked Mien's gps. For a hacker's girlfriend, Mien is pretty easy to find. Hansel is glad that Matt found his Mango as Hansel knows Matt has loved her for 16 years.
He then takes a look at N&T's share in Kannath group. It's only 40% but Hansel intends to gain more and later gives the whole group as wedding gift for Matt.
Matt has helped Hansel's business for a long time whether legal or illegal.
"Wish you have a happy love life, Matt."
Hansel then said himself with a smile.
Chapter 9 Later in the evening,
Mien and Matt takes a stroll around the village tracing their happy memories.
"P'Candle, why did you leave without saying goodbyes."
"I was forced to leave with my dad. Not intentional. Sorry."
"And you stole my diaries."
"Yes. As a keepsake but I didn't think that you would have like me that much."
"Who liked you? I didn't."
"It's a sin to lie."
Mien didn't say another word because she knows she can't win debating with Matt.
"P'Candle, who are you really? I remembered you were poor. How did you become rich? Why are you chasing me and why are you so good to me?"
"Do you want to know?"
"Then agree to be my girlfriend then I would say 50% of my life and if you agree to be my wife, I'll say 100% about me."
Mien doesn't know if Matt is serious or kidding but she knows he's mysterious and powerful. Mien then saw the boat noodle stall that they used to have when they were kids. Mien's parents weren't rich but Mien loves to eat boat noodle so she would save her pocket money and on the day the exams were finished, she would spend it all on noodle shop with Matt.
"Mien, long time no see."
The shop owner has seen Mien grow up under his eyes.
"Sawatdee, Luang. Can you give me two regulars?"
"Ok, Right away. Who's it with you? Is he your boyfriend?"
"Yes, I am."
Before Mien has a chance to answer, Matt replied quickly. The other customers thought they were seeing the gender reversed version of Beauty and the Beast with Mien wearing her old regular clothes.
"Can I sit with you guys?"
Suddenly there was a girl wearing clothes which are revealing her thighs and cleavages. The girl wears a heavy make-up. It was Namnao, the Gamnam's daughter. She was supposed to be the most beautiful girl in the village having won the beauty contest thrice in a row. When Namnao saw Matt, she thought she found her koo
"Actually, no. You can sit in other places."
Matt answered coldly. He hates everyone interrupting Mien and his date. But Namnao didn't intend to give up easily.
"Come on. Look at me. I'm more beautiful and sexier than her. Why would you choose to be with an ugly duckling?"
Matt is angry at Namnao's insult.
"If you don't shut up and go to other place, don't tell me I'm being cruel."
"What? Do you own the shop? You don't. I'm Gamnam's daughter. If I want, I can easily buy this small shop."
"Really? If you have that much money, we can bid for the stall."
"Bring it on."
Namnao is surprised that Matt bid at high price for the first time but she didn't want to lose easily.
Matt then stopped outbidding Namnao.
"Congratulation, you won."
Namnao is outraged that she bid 1.1 million for a food stall. The owner was in heaven because he didn't think his stall would be worth that much.
At that time, Namnao's brother, Chatchane who is a ruffian appeared with his gang.
"P'Chat, they tricked me to bid this stall for 1.1 million."
Chatchane is hot-tempered so he didn't listen for others and decided to strike Matt. But Matt was skilled in martial arts so after fighting for a while, all the gangsters were on the ground.
"P'Candle, how can you fight so well? You look so cool."
Mien then praised Matt's fighting skills.
"This is nothing. If you like me to fight, I can go and win Muay-Thai champions."
"No. I don't want you to get hurt."
"So, you are worried about me?"
Matt is glad that Mien's worry about his safety.
"No. I don't want to take care of you so don't get hurt."
Even Mien being hard-hearted is being cute to Matt. But there was Namnao who can't stand those two being lovey-dovey.
"I want you two out of this shop and never came back."
Matt then immediately goes out saying
"Mien, don't worry. This shop will be ours in a week at most. I promise. Then you can have boat noodle whenever you want."
"P'Candle. Don't be arrogant. How can this shop be yours in a week?"
"If I can make it, will you be my girlfriend?"
Matt then gives a call to his assistant, Ransel to investigate about Kamnam's illegal business. Kamnam has been notorious about abusing his power and bribing the government official about illegal wood-cutting and Matt believes Ransel can find the evidence within 3 days.
Mien knows Matt is sincere about wanting her to be his girlfriend but she's not so sure about him after seeing him hugging other girl in his bungalow.
"But you already has a girlfriend."
"She is not my girlfriend but my stalker. If you don't believe, I can bring her to explain it to you."
"Still, I don't know a thing about you."
"But we've known since 16 years ago."
"What I mean is I don't know much about the present you."
"What about present me?"
"The present you is domineering, over-confident, arrogant, powerful, rich and ruthless. And I don't know when you will kick me out like you did to others."
"Mien, don't worry. I can promise you I won't let a single tear fall when you are with me."
"You spend 1.1 million for a boat noodle stall? Are you in your right mind Namnao?
Kamnam is used to his son bringing trouble but he didn't think his daughter will be this stupid and useless.
"Dad, I was being tricked."
Namnao didn't dare to admit it was her pride that lead her to pay 1.1 million.
"What's wrong with things lately? Your brother is beaten. The 20 million debts from Munmien is paid by an anonymous person."
Namnao then remembered Matt being together with Mien so she deducted he must be the one who paid the debts.
"Dad. I saw a guy together with Mien and he looks rich. He must be the one who paid the debt."
"Really. If he can afford 20 millions with just a flash. He's not ordinary. I thought if I have Mien as daughter-in-law, I could have died without worries for your brother but that stranger dared to obstruct my plans."
10 years ago
Mien's father was heart broken when Mien's mother left him for a rich man. He thought if he got richer than that man, he could get her back so he was led astray by gambling and became a gambling addict. Then in a haste, he borrowed 20 millions from Kamnam, his best friend because he was confident he could pay back. Kamnam has always known Mien didn't know clearly about her dad's work. If she knew her dad was a founder and owns shares in now successful company under an alias, she wouldn't work so hard to repay the debts. He purposedly hid it from Mien so he can have Mien's rightful inheritance when she marries with his son. He even went to pressure Mien's grandparents with his son but who would have thought. All he can say now is fate is really not on his side.
On the other hand, Matt and Mien spent their days like back in childhood. The only difference is Matt would let Mien has her way and he wouldn't talk her in reluctant tone anymore.
16 years ago
"Matt, nowadays you look fuller. You must have money for lunch, right?"
The usual bullies for Matt is blocking Matt's way to the school. This place was a shortcut to school in the back alley so normally students won't take this way unless they are late. But Matt had to wake Mien up for school so he needed to take it.
"Don't block our way. We're late for school."
Mien stood in front of Matt with shoulder up. Mien was a little girl but she was tall for her age.
"You're just a little girl. Don't talk big."
"If you're real, bring it on. Let's have one-on-one."
Mien looked at the biggest bully with challenging eyes. She knew the bullies are mostly talks and she can scare them easily.
"Mien, don't fight. We'll be late for school and if the teacher knows,"
"P'Candle. We're already late for school. The teacher will ask us and we can always tell how they block our way."
The bully didn't think the little girl would be that brave. They then thought it's better to find another prey then being scolded for bullying a girl and getting beaten. So they retreated. That day, both Mien and Matt were late for school but the bullies won't bother with both of them again. Present
Matt knows Kamnam's people were watching and following them around but he acts like he didn't see them because he knows Ransel will send Kamnam to jail in a few days.
"Mien, don't worry. This time I'll protect you from bullies."
Matt then takes a glance at Mien in the garden. Mien has agreed to wear the clothes he brought from Phuket so she looks like an innocent angel under the sunlight. His angel who he'll protect. Matt has never wanted anything in his life but making Mien smile and be happy is his ultimate goal.
On the 5th day
The news about Kamnam arrested for his illegal activities has spread throughout the village. The villagers were in joy that they are free from the greedy Kamnam. It is like their prayers are finally heard. Namnao and Chatchane has to sell all their possessions for Kamnam's lawsuit and for their livings. Matt then bought the noodle shop with the market price using Ramsel's name and gives it to Mien. Mien doesn't know what to do with the shop so she lets the original owner to keep it open with an agreement that she can have noodles whenever she wants.
Chapter 11 At Bangkok, inside Mien's apartment
Matt and Mien has come back to Bangkok so they can stay away from all the troubles from the village. And Matt is here to take Mien dinner.
"Sign here. P'Candle."
"What is this?"
"Can't you see? It's an IOU."
After Mien has learnt that Matt has payed off all her debts, she thought of how to repay him. Mien knows 20 millions is not a small amount and she has no ability to pay him up in the near future.
"I don't want an IOU."
"Then, what do you want?"
"I want you to be my girlfriend."
"No. I will get a job so I can repay you as soon as possible."
"You won't get a job."
Mien thought he was looking down on her. She may not be academic but she has a degree and her last job at least lasted 4 years.
"Why? You're doubting my ability to get a job."
"No because I blacklisted you from companies."
"What, Seriously? You're crazy."
"I just want you to live a comfortable life."
Mien really thinks Matt is crazy or crazy in love and she wishes it was the latter.
"Mien, I have money. I earn money so you can spend them. What's the use if you don't? I might just throw them in the sea."
"P'Candle. I know you're a rich man's son but you can't just spend your dad's money on me like a spoiled rich brat."
Mien is certain that she loves Matt. It's not because he has money nor he's good-looking. Okay. a little on his good looks. It's because he gives her the feeling of home and he became someone she can depend on.
"Mien, believe me if I say every baht I spent on you was earned by myself. I have long been independent from my overbearing father."
Matt hated his father. His father is one unreasonable man who loves money the most in the world even more than his own son. The only reason for his existence is to be someone his father can mold to success Kannath group. His father separated from his mother and his mother died from the underlying heart disease.
Mien noticed whenever Matt talked about his father, he became sad and angry so she decided not to ask anymore.
"If so, I will work for you."
"Okay. Can you code?"
"Can you be my personal nurse?"
"Can you be my personal assistant?"
"Can you cook?"
"Can you be my girlfriend?"
Mien was glad she can do something for Matt so she got tongue slipped.
"Come on. Mien. We'll be one sooner or later. What's the point of denying?"
"I just don't want you to think I'm gold digger."
"Mien, do you really think I'll think of you like that? I know that you're not one. Don't ever doubt my love for you. I promise I'll have eyes only on you for this lifetime. Even if you gives away all my wealth, even if you taint my honor and fame. I'm no gentleman. I'm devil but who'll be a gentl one for you."
Mien was touched by Matt. She knows he loves her sincerely but she is afraid of someone leaving her. From her mom, her dad and now her grandparents. It'd be a lie if she says she doesn't miss them but Matt being here help her with the pain.
"Then, promise me. You will never leave me. You will never lie to me."
"Of course. Everything for you. my sweetheart."
Matt then hugs Mien, gently kissing her forehead. He finally get her love and he'll make sure he'll never let go of her hands.
At Kannath's mansion
"Have you found his location?"
"Yes, Than. Khun Matt has been purchasing a girl."
"Useless son. Get me all the info regarding that girl."
James Kannath has always been in control of things but lately everythings have been spiraling out. First his son, then his company. There is someone who has been purchasing his company shares at alarming point so he needs to have a M&A with Thakrit's group to stabilize his position. But with his son's stubbornness, he's sure he needs to use some underhand methods.
"Ransel, can you help me investigate Thakrit's group?"
Matt is having the time of his life with Mien but he knows so well of his father. His dad won't sit back and let him marry Mien so easily. Even though he has no intention to contradict his dad, he doesn't want to a tamed cat. If his father and Thanya annoys him again, he can't help but retaliate them by acquiring Thakrit's group as warning.
"It's an easy job. I've investigated generally. Thakrit's group was actually co-founded by Phuchit Thakrit and his friend inventor. Khun Phuchit provied the capital and his best friend, inventions for home appliances but mysteriously disappeared 10 years ago, leaving his 40% shares untouched. Khun Phuchit also has 40% shares. Even if we got the rest, it won't affect much unless we hunt down the mysterious scientist."
"Ok. I'll leave it up to you. Call me if you have any progress and for the side job, can you help me acquire 'Flutter magazine'? I want to buy it as soon as possible."
"Boss, how did you know 'Flutter' is related to Thakrit's group? It's Phuchit's younger sis, Thanya's aunt act as chief editor."
"I don't know it but I heard Mien used to work there. So, I just want to buy it for her. She might be too boring if there's no job but I don't want her to be tired."
Ransel thinks his boss is bitten by serious love bug. Buying 'Flutter' might be too outrageous for others but for his boss, it's just another toy.
"I'll reply ASAP."
Mien is here for the lunch so Matt finishes his call with Ransel. He doesn't want to have brilliant and successful life but a wonderful and quiet one with Mien. For this, he needs to plan ahead and clear the annoying obstacles.
"Mien. What do you want to have for lunch?"
"P'Candle. Let's go to this restaurant recommended by Top and invite him too. I haven't met him a long time."
Matt is jealous Mien even has time to think about Top,being with him.
"Are you close with Top?"
"Yes. I'm his savior. I saved him from drowning when we were in university and we became close."
Mien then noticed Matt's frown.
"What? Are you jealous?"
"I'm. Even though he may be good to you, you can't allow to think more than friend with him."
Mien thought Matt is so cute being jealous. His overpossessiveness of her is one that only her father had for her. It was her luck that he fell for her and it was her luck that they meet again. She doesn't mind meeting 10 enemies if she were to meet with Matt and grow old with him. Mien then discovered her train of thought leads her to dream a future with Matt. With she being dependent on him more and more, if they were to part, she won't know how to live alone anymore.
"Ok. Let's go. I sent him a message and he said he's bringing a friend."
Mien decided to leave all the future planning in the hands of Matt and fate. She will just enjoy the present with Matt.
At the restaurant
Mien and Matt were having playing a mobile game when Top arrived with a guest which surprises both of them.
Side Story 3
After searching Matt all over BKK, Natt decided to go back and ask the smug bar owner again.
"Hey, Khun. You really don't know my brother Matt or never heard of him?"
Top is delighted that Natt came back but he's hiding it with his usual smugness.
"I don't know Matt but I've heard of him."
Natt is furious but she really needs to contact her brother with their dad planning the coming wedding.
At that time, Top received a message from Mien, asking to have lunch together with Matt so Top turns toward Natt and asks
"Are you free? Have lunch with me. Who would know you might see your brother too?"
Natt is irritated at Top but she doesn't hate him. Even though he says things whatever he likes and gets on people nervers, she knows he is not a bad guy.
"What are you waiting for? Lead the way."
Top can't help but smile at Natt's short-temper. This girl would be perfect for his boring life he thinks.
"How come you're here?"
Matt was surprised when Natt came in with Top.
"I've been searching for your shadow all over the town."
"I was out of town."
No wonder Natt couldn't find her genius brother.
"Dad wants you back at home. To get married."
The word marry alarms Mien. She has always thought the world of rich has only arranged marriages with her limited experience but she never thought her life would intertwine with them. The thought of Matt marrying another girl makes Mien's heart hurt. She will never be the home breaker even though she comes first nor they are in love.
Matt also notices Mien's anxious expressions and he intends to scold his insensitive younger sibling.
"What nonsense are you talking about? When did I ever agree? To whom and when?"
Natt finally notices her brother's deadly glare and the lovely girl sitting beside him.
"I'm sorry. I was eager and Yes, you never agreed to get married. BTW, who is she?"
Matt thought his sister at least knows how to shut her mouth appropriately.
"This is Mien. She was my childhood friend, my current girlfriend and my future wife/ your future sis-in-law."
Natt was startled and Top even can see her jaws dropped on the floor. After a while, she recovers her brain activity and as girl's curious nature, nonstop questions has shot out.
"Who are you? How did you meet? When did you become his lover? Are you guys really gonna get married?"
At this point, Top LOLs at Natt's inquisition. The brother Matt won't open his mouth unless necessary while the sister was a cannon incarnation.
"Does it matter with you? I'm the one who's getting married and all."
Matt's ability to shut one's mouth is really strong. Just one sentence and shuts his sis mouth. After that, the lunch was proceeded smoothly. Mien finally calms down of Matt having a bride by his father, Top inquiring more about Matt and Natt in return inquiring about Mien. But nobody didn't get an accurate answer what kind of work Matt does. Aside from Mien shockingly knowing Matt being heir of Kenneth's Group.
It was 7a.m in the next morning. The meeting between in laws(Natt being the only relative Matt recognizes and Top being partial relative/best friend to Mien.) seems not much trouble. But Mien has the fear that Matt's dad will find a way to force them apart. And it has become a reality.
Both Mien and Matt are woken by the loud knockings and in front of them, stands the building manager.
"Khun Munmien, Khun Matthew, due to the building being purchased by a new owner and according to his intention, all the occupants are required to move out not later than tomorrow."
Being the one who has been in the business world for a long time, Matt has his suspicion.
"Is the new owner by chance Kenneth's group?"
"How did you know, Khun Matt?"
So finally, his father has decided to start the battle. Let's see. Who will win the war, old man?
Due to the sudden notice to move out, Matt and Mien has to turn to the hotels for their temporary residence. And the place Matt chose was a love hotel. His reasoning was valid. He just came back from America and his father also cut his source of money(Just Mien didn't know that he had not used a single baht from his dad since he can start making money at the age of 16).
For Mien, practically she's broke. Even though she no longer needs to pay for interests or living expenses for grandparents, she doesn't have her source of income. The little money she has in the bank is the only one she can depend on for now.
"Even though I'm not rich, I'm sure we can find another place like a motel or cheap home stay."
"Who says I'm going to depend on you for living. I'm the male and I'll always be the breadwinner for this family."
"Who's your family?"
"You're. You're going to be my wife."
Even in this difficult time, Matt is having fun teasing Mien. He intends to wait till Ransel finishes his work before clarifying his identity. And he knows his mango is no gold digger and the trick his father pulled makes sure of it. Wait a little, little mango. I'm going to make you my queen.
"Mien, in order to save money, I only took one room but don't worry I'll sleep on the couch."
Mien is not sure how she can handle being alone with Matt in a room especially in a love hotel. The room is neither too small nor big. It has several different lightings especially the dim romantic ones. The most prominent thing in the room is the bed. It was larger and has several pillows on it. Mien feels uncomfortable and shy. When she looks at Matt, he is looking at her tenderly with his seductive watery eyes.
"Mien, being in this room makes me feels like it's our honeymoon. Mien, even though I don't have the money and the heir status, will you marry me?"
Mien thinks Matt is an idiot. She loves Matt being Matt. Gentle devil just only for her.
"P'Candle, You really are an idiot. I love you because you're you. Sometimes, overbearing for others but extremely gentle towards me. Sometimes proud and arrogant. Sometimes, unreasonable. But I know you're lonely like me. You want love like me. You want a family like me. So, I'll be your wife, your girlfriend, you family and friend."
Matt was touched by Mien and so he suddenly kisses her with all his might.
Mien was startled a little. Matt has kissed her before but just gentle packs. This kiss however was so demanding like he want to suck all her breath in one go. Her hands were in Matt's ruffled hair. One of his hand supporting her neck so he can kiss deeper and one hand moving slowly on her back. And then his tongue slips into Mien's mouth intertwining and teasing. He then finished with a little bite on Mien's lower lip.
When he releases her, Mien was sure she nearly faints from hypoxia. Her face red like a rose and her eyes clouded with mist. Matt was sure if he teases more, he would lose control. Mien is the conservative girl raised properly by her grandparents and he wants to wait till marriage and in a more romantic place. Their first time definitely won't be in a love hotel.
"Mien, go shower first."
Mien jolted at the sound of shower. Matt then laugh amusingly and said
"Don't worry. Just shower to go to bed. As I said before, I'll sleep on the couch."
Mien was relieved but at the same time a little disappointed. She is not confident she can reject Matt's advances. His kiss makes her dizzy and lose sanity. Even though she is not experienced, she knows how much he wants her from the kiss. The fact that he stops makes her loves him more.
'P'Candle, you're making me fall hard, harder and quicker.'
It was nearly midnight when Matt came out from the shower. Mien pretends to be asleep as she doesn't know how to face him. The couch is large but for Matt, tall and strong, looks really uncomfortable. Mien feels guilty for letting Matt surfers. He has given up lots of things to be with her and she can't just take those as granted. Mien finally decided that she can utterly trust Matt.
"P'Candle, come and sleep on the bed. It's too uncomfortable to sleep on the couch."
"Mien, are you sure? Aren't you afraid of me taking advantage?"
"If you want, you would have tried long ago. Come on. So we can have energy to look for work and earn money."
Matt doesn't care if they were in love hotel and on a large bed. All he knows is the distance between them is reducing and it makes him happy enough. The next day
Ransel has informed Matt that he has acquired the 'Flutter' magazine. Matt asks Mien to wear something fashionable and couple like so Mien took out the first dress Matt bought for her because she likes. It was a white knee length dress with a jade green belt and neck, sweet, innocent and fashionable at the same time.
Mien also chooses white coat with jade neck tie so everyone will know they are a couple at a glance. Matt loves Mien's choices.
Matt then takes Mien to 'Flutter' magazine.
Wine was informed the new boss for the magazine is coming today so she has been waiting for him all morning. All she knows is her new boss is a billionaire who's not even 30 years old yet. Even though she's aunt to Thanya, she's only 9 years older, pretty and single. She is determined if the new boss was someone handsome enough, she would seduce and makes the 'Flutter' hers this time. The previous owner Jao Sua has a legal wife so even though she got chief editor position, it was her loss. The magazine has been in red lately after Mien left. Thanya is no use and has been chasing her ghost like P'Matt all over the town. It was Mien who did all her work behind the scenes. All she needed was sit in the meeting using the prepared documents by Mien.
"P'Matt, why are we here?"
Mien was surprised when the place Matt found a job for her is 'Flutter'.
"Well, we're here to work. You want to work, rt?"
At that time, Matt's cellphone rang. It was from Hansel unless it is important Hansel won't contact Matt.
"Mien, go in first. I'll follow you a while."
Mien reluctantly nodded and went in. When she was at the reception, the receptionist Pan couldn't remember Mien so she asks politely because Mien was wearing expansive clothes.
"May I know your business?"
"I'm here for work."
Every staff knows today, the only one who'd be coming for work is their new boss. So Pan was immediately alerted and said
"Please wait for a moment."
She then went and informed Wine.
"Chief Editor, the new boss is here but isn't the new boss a man? The one here is a young woman."
Wine also thinks strange but follows Pan out. When she saw Mien, she too can't remember Mien too so she asks in doubious tone.
"Miss, what kind of business you have here?"
Mien was shocked when Wine came out but Matt didn't say what kind of work she's here for.
"I'm not sure, Chief Editor"
Wine is surprised Mien knows her name. But she composed herself.
"What's your name?"
"My name is Munmien and I am asked to be here for work."
"Mien? How dare you come back here? You're already fired. Because I told your clothes was the problem, you transformed yourself and come back here? Sorry, I can't accept you. The truth is you really don't have a background so I have no choice but to fire you. If you understands clearly then go back."
Mien has been treated by Wine like this all the time she worked at 'Flutter' so she is used to but Matt really told her they are here for work so he couldn't be lying.
"No, I'm here for work really."
Wine has always been looking down on poor kids like Mien but Mien is the only one who could stand her verbal abuse for years.
"Well, unless the new boss accepts it, the probability is zero."
"Who says I won't accept it?"
It was Matt at the entrance who has been watching all this. His eyes were cold and piercing, this old haggard dares to insult his little mango. She really has a death wish.
Wine turns to the voice and saw Matt who's handsome and has an aura that makes people avoids him.
Wine was bewitched by Matt so she acts like an obedient kitten in front of him.
"Khun ka, what are you here for?"
"I'm your new boss."
When she heard Matt is her new boss, she thanks heaven for giving her such a hottie as new boss.
"Boss ka, don't worry. I'll immediately get rid of her. Mien, get out and don't ever come back again."
Matt has met different kinds of women in Vegas when he was working for Hansel. He can see it at first glance what kind of woman Wine is.
"Who are you to chase her away?"
His cold voice makes Wine startled and she noticed they were wearing matching attires like a couple.
"I'm dismissing you effective from this moment."
Wine has never met someone who is not affected by her charms and more chase her like a demon.
"On what grounds."
Matt has a smirk. He put his hand on Mien's waist leaning affectionately and said
"You fired Mien who is my fiancee."
Everyone including Mien was surprised. Wine was jealous and envious of Mien that she can't hide her natural self and gentle in front of Matt anymore.
"Do you know who I'm? Who my sister's husband?"
Matt don't even look at her. His all attentions were on Mien.
"I don't know and don't care."
Of course he knows she's Thanya's aunt.
Wine was so angry. She stomped her feet and turned away. In a while, she came running out carrying her handbag.
"Wait. I'll make you regret for this."
All the staffs at magazine were looking at this encounter for a while and they were rejoicing the fact that Wine got fired. All the male colleagues were regretting that they didn't chase Mien when she was an ugly duckling. All the female colleagues were jealous and envious of Mien who was treated like a treasure by Matt.
Matt then look at Mien in the eyes.
"Mien, I hope you be the chief editor for 'Flutter'."
"P'Matt, are you serious? It's not a toy but a publishing company."
"I know. It doesn't matter even if you make this fails. It is a toy I bought for you to play. I know you loved the job and you have an eye for the fashion. I love you and wishes to spend every minutes with you. But I know you'll be bored and your self-worth will be deteriorated if I do this. Work is not to earn money but for self-aware for you because I will make sure you be like a queen for the rest of your life."
Mien was touched and same time loss of word for his confession. His voice was low enough that only she can hear but his eyes were sparkling like stars. She was never the girl who dreams to be a Cinderella. She was forced to grow up after the departure of her parents. She didn't have time to day-dream or anyone to rely on. She knows it was a short time but Matt has entered deep in her heart to her marrow. She now doesn't know how to live without him for the rest of her life.
