chapter 1

��Sophia, are you sure you don't like Alex?,�� Stella asked Sophia. She has been looking at the table that is few steps away from them while eating her lunch absentmindedly. Sophia finally looked away from the table and trained her gaze on Stella who was watching her curiously. ��Why? Why do you say so? I already told you I don't like him,�� she said. Stella smirked and gave her an unconvinced gaze which shows that she clearly doesn't believe what Sophia is saying. ��Even if you don't like him, you must have a crush on him cause you have been staring at him ever since we got here. I will tell you this again. Beatrice won't like it when she finds out how you feel about Alex,�� Stella pointed out. Sophia groaned and dug into her lunch. She pouted at what Stella said suddenly feeling sad. Is it so bad to have a crush on someone? Even a tiny little crush. She doesn't know that the little action she just displayed. The little cute pout on her face already captured the hearts hiof many guys in the cafeteria. Even though she is new there, most of the guys there are already entranced by her beauty. Even if she looks too young... Too beautiful... Too innocent that she doesn't belong here. Stella noticed the intent stares the guys were giving her and of course she noticed the hateful glares from the girls. She smiled and looked at Sophia who was still pouting sadly about Alex. The culprit doesn't even know what is going on around her. She is not even aware of the way guys were devouring her with their eyes or the way the girls were stabbing her with her hateful glare. Sophia looked at Stella and sighed. ��I don't know if I like him. He's handsome and all but he practically ignored me when I tried to talk to him so... I don't know if I like him.�� Stella's eyes twinkled in amusement as she glanced over at Alex. She was a little bit suprised when she saw Alex quickly looking away. Hmm.... Was Alex just peeking at Sophia? Stella was now very amused. Seems like their lives is going to get better from now on now that Sophia is here. Stella looked back at Sophia who was still whining about not knowing if she likes Alex or not. ��You don't know if he may like you too,�� Stella teased even if she had a feeling that what she is saying is actually true. Well, she just caught Alex looking away which means he must have been staring at Sophia and was trying to hide the fact that he was staring at her. Sophia gasped and shook her head sideways like she was trying to wave off a thought in her head. She giggled and told Stella,��I know you are teasing me. It's seriously not funny so stop.�� She then sipped the milkshake on the table. Stella wanted to say something but just then the emergency bell in the cafeteria rang out as a voice came through the speakers,��Special assassinators are requested to be in the office right away. Madam wants to see you all.�� Stella was suprised. They only use this method to call special assassinators if they have a very important mission to accomplish. Stella stood up wondering why the madam have requested for them. She looked back at Sophia and pats her soft hair like an elder sister patting the hair of her younger sister. That feels and sounds weird but that is how she feels right now. ��Stay here and wait for me,�� she told Sophia who nodded obediently. ��And if you get too bored, just go back to the room okay? Don't fight with anyone,�� Stella quickly added the last statement. She knows some of these girls glaring at Sophia hatefully will try to pick up a fight with her so she wants to ensure that she won't get into any trouble with madam. Madam might look nice and act nice but whenever she is furious, she is never easily appeased. ��Go on and stop worrying like I am a little child,�� Sophia said lowly and tried to hide the tears in her eyes. She suddenly remembered that this is how her father used to behave when he was still alive. He always worried over her like she was a little child which is very funny cause Stella is acting the same way. It's strange but she feels loved. This means that in this strange place, there is at least someone that cares about her. Stella walked away and Sophia stared at her departing figure silently. She also saw Alex walking away with the lady he was sitting with the other time and she sighed. Is that Beatrice? Is she an assassinator too? Stella walked into the room and was suprised when she saw the poor state madam is in. None of them has ever seen madam looking so broken, worried and frail. She always potrayed the picture of a strong woman to them all so they were very suprised to see her that way. Madam sighed and finally spoke up,��I have a very important mission for you all.�� All of them immediately stilled when they heard that familiar word. ��This time, this mission comes with a reward. A reward that I won't disclose yet until I receive a successfully accomplished mission from one of you,�� she spoke softly but her words carried alot of power. ��Tell us what it is you want us to do madam,�� they all chorused. She looked up and finally told them,��My son Justin is here. He was involved in a terrible accident and is still unconscious. They claim it to be an accident but I think it was a well planned murder.�� Stella's interest was piqued when she heard this. The madam well known son that no one has never seen is here and the mission is about him. ��I want you all to investigate who tried to kill my son and once you get that, whoever kills the person first, I will personally reward him or her,�� Madam said. .......
