Roman NO ONE ELSE COMES CLOSE chapitre Chapitre 2

Isabella ran into Mato Hospital with her luggage. She quickly inquired about her father's ward and went inside. She had already promised herself en route to the hospital that, she was going to be strong for her family and won't cry in front of them.

However, when she saw her father lying lifelessly on the hospital bed and her mother, sitting dejectedly by his side with a tear-streaked face, she couldn't bear it. Her once graceful parents now looked like peasants. She ran out of the room and wept bitterly.

After crying for a while, Isabella went back into the hospital room. Her mum, who had not noticed her earlier on, finally saw her and hugged her sorrowfully. "It's okay mum," Isabella comforted. "Everything is going to be okay."

She sat by her father's bedside and said; "don't worry dad, I graduated with summa cum laude, the highest honors in my college. I was also the best basketball player so I was quite popular. A lot of hospitals and companies are already waiting to employ me, so hang in there a little longer. I will get back everything we have lost, you have my word."

Her father shook his head while trying to speak with one side of his mouth. Isabella took her ears closer to his mouth and heard him say; "Go far away from here and stay away from us. Angelo is the one after us, no matter what you do, he will not allow you to succeed."

Shocked, Isabella turned to her mum and asked, "mum, what is dad talking about?"

Her mother sighed sadly and said; "Isa, there was an accident before you were born. We lost your older brother, Antonio while Angelo lost his parents and little sister. He blamed our family for everything and swore to get his revenge. He is the reason why our family has lost everything.

Angelo is currently the wealthiest bachelor in Panama. Your father is worried that if you try to help, Angelo will make you his target and you are all we have left. I shouldn't have called you here in the first place, I've ended up putting you in harm's way."

"Please don't say that mum," Isabella said. "You and dad are all I have and I would do anything for the both of you. If it makes me Angelo's target, no problem. But I will not stand by and watch the both of you suffer alone."

After speaking Isa stood up, she wanted to go outside for a little bit of fresh air. She was feeling overwhelmed by everything she had heard. She had always thought she was the first and only child of her parents. She only just discovered that she had a brother who had died, and a maniac was after her family. It was a lot to take in.

Isabella bumped into a hard chest as she got to the door, mostly because she wasn't paying attention to her steps. She looked up to see a huge hairy guy with one of his hands completely tattooed.

He wore a turquoise blue short-sleeved shirt with black pants and was ruggedly handsome. She heard her mother gasp in fear as the guy made his way into the room. She went back to stand by her mother's side.
