Ashley wrung her sweating hands in nervousness. If she could squeeze them dry, it
would have been by now. Her body squirmed a little here and there on the seat, and
couldn’t dare to look or give a slight glance at her handsome seatmate.
As for Tanaga, his body sat sideways, facing the window, as his mind wandered far
away as though Ashley did not exist. This made the lady uneasy all the more.
They had traveled for thirty minutes in complete silence where they could even
hear the other person’s rhythmic breaths. For Ashley, this could be the longest
thirty minutes of her life, and she had no clue what kind of life waiting for her to
where they were heading.
Later, the car suddenly stopped. Ashley turned her head and was struck dumb with
what she saw. They stopped in front of a very tall wall with substantial metal gates.
Not for long, the gate opened wholly but gradually unmanned. Then, a long road
came into view within a serene place she only saw in photo galleries. Ashley felt
they entered a peaceful and beautiful valley somewhere far from the city, although
they were still within the city limits.
They passed through a vast garden where she could see multiple variants of
Flowers, bushes, and trees in different length, size, shapes, and colors. It was a
totally amazing sight.
Ashley was stunned. She didn’t realize her mouth gaped, and her eyes were as big as
letter O while she uttered, “Ohhhh, ahhhh, wowww!” which were quite loud for
Tanaga to hear. Ashley had no idea that Tanaga was watching her in secret. He smiled on the side
and looked back outside the window in a hurry to keep her from noticing.
The car went all the way to the entrance of the palace-like house. If she stared at it
intently, she could compare it
hugeness with Malacanang Palace.
All of her fears blew away out of excitement and astonishment to witness the
wealth displayed to her. Ashley couldn’t believe everything she saw.
“Is this real? Will I be living here from now on?’
The car completely stopped in front of a large, intricately carved wooden door.
Someone opened it for them. It was an elderly man who stood with his spine
straight while giving orders to the male housekeepers.
“Bring all of the lady’s things and placed them in the house at the back,” ordered
Tanaga’s butler to the other maids who stood in line while waiting for them to get
off the car.
Tanaga went down first and directly walked into the mansion. Minutes past and he
felt Ashley didn’t follow.
To avoid the helpers from noticing he was waiting for Ashley, he took the contract
on his office table and read it thoroughly.
The contract Tanaga wanted for Ashley to sign was all about the things he wanted
her to do and the following events to happen if the agreement has been fulfilled.
He wanted Ashley to become the surrogate mother of his heir. It was stated that
they would be sleeping together until she got pregnant. In case Ashley would bear a
child after their first sexual intercourse, there was no need for them to continue the
However, if their first child was a girl, that meant they had to have to continue their
lovemaking to pro-create another child.
Somehow, in case the second child was still a girl, there was no reason to pursue the
matter, and Ashley was freed from the contract, and she could leave with two
million in hand. One million per child…
BUT she has to leave them all…
