A STOLEN KISS FROM THE CEO! - Season 2 Episode 24
When Leon and Maxwell safely arrived at their destination, they were picked up from the airport by one of the many chauffeurs of the Treshvire empire. On their way to one of the presidential five-star hotels; which was fifteen kilometers away from the airport, Leon got an annoying call that disrupted his cheerful mode.
The head of Ella’s bodyguard called and narrated all that transpired in Ella’s office.
“You must be very stupid for allowing this to happen,” Leon said in a deep and terrifying voice. “Didn’t the last scandal we had, teach you any lesson? Am I supposed to state everything you are meant to do in black and white? Aren’t you supposed to thoroughly search anyone that goes into her office? It seems you are tired of living. Just thank your stars that I’m not currently in town.” Leon paused to breathe down his anger.
“How is my wife doing?” Leon’s forehead furrowed and his eyes darkened. His whole body stiffened as he thought of a way to punish whoever was playing this dirty game with his most cherished wife.
“She is a little bit shaken but she is fine.” The bodyguard’s trembling voice conveyed his frightened state. “Miss Denise is currently with her in her office.”
“I will be sending Sky over to you now, hand over the micro camera to him. He will take over the investigation. Ensure that you do your job properly this time. I don’t want a single scratch on my wife’s skin. If I get one more stupid report from you, it will be better for you to put a gun in your mouth and blow your brains out than face my wrath.”
Leon ended the call and quickly made a brief call to Sky.
All this while, Maxwell was silent as he watched his nephew impressively handle his personal affairs.
Leon took in a deep breath to calm his nerves before placing a call to Ella.
“Hello sweetheart, how are you doing?” Leon’s piqued face softened on hearing Ella’s soft breathing.

“I’m fine,” she replied in a slightly trembling voice. I’m… Something…” She hesitated for a while and changed the line of discussion. “How was your flight? Are you at your hotel now?”
Leon smiled at her thoughtful consideration. He could tell that she didn’t want to say anything that would disrupt his mood or his work.
“My flight was fine and I’m on my way to the hotel. Thanks for asking,” he blew a kiss over the phone to her. “I’m aware of what happened in your office. So, you can relax and talk to me. You have nothing to be worried about.” Leon said in a charming and persuasive voice.
“Oh no, you’ve been told already!” Ella said in a frustrated tone. “I didn’t you to be worried about me. Hmm… Well, I’m feeling much better now, thanks to Denise.
“The only two things that are bothering me are; 1. Silvia was confirmed dead an hour ago. 2. I don’t know who she is working for because I was told that she was live streaming all my discussions with her. That means that someone was watching me the whole time while I spoke to her. I don’t know their plans and that is scaring the hell out of me.”
“Don’t worry my love, we will get answers soon. In the meantime, I want you to take your security measures seriously.” Leon’s voice was calm but stern. “No one outside your company is permitted to enter your office going forward until they have been thoroughly searched. Also, address your staff through Denise, that the company would be very strict with security procedures to ensure everyone’s safety.”
“Okay, Leon. I’m so sorry that all this happened again. It seems I’m constantly attracting problems for you all the time.” Ella said in a slightly depressed tone.
“Don’t say that my love, this is not your fault. You do not attract any form of trouble.” Leon could sense her depressed mood. This infuriated him so much that he felt like punching something hard.
“You are just too amazing that everyone wants a bit of you, most especially me.” Leon tried to cheer her up. “People are just wicked. They will keep trying to take advantage of your good nature and that is what worries me. I just want you to be safe okay?”
“Okay!” Ella’s replied in a soft voice. “Thank you so much. I love you.”
“You are welcome, my love. I love you more. I’ll talk to you again when I get to my hotel room. Make sure you remain calm for me, okay?”
“Alright, bye love,” Ella said in a cheerful voice.

“Bye!” Leon smiled and ended the call.
At this point, Maxwell couldn’t hide his chuckle at his nephew’s tenderness toward his wife.
“You remind me of your dad when he first met your mum,” Maxwell said in an amused tone.
“Really!” Leon grinned.
“Yes! That’s how I know that you and Ariella are destined for each other. You both are going to make a legendary power couple,” Maxwell beamed.
“Wow! Thanks, uncle! To be compared to an iconic man like my dad is the greatest honor I could ever dream of.” Leon’s anger dissipated and was replaced with happy memories.
“Your dad is a truly great man but unlike your surprising first encounter with Ariella, your dad’s first encounter with your mum was a disaster.”
“Hahaha… I love that story,” Leon smiled.
“Well, my brother was the fiercest and most difficult man to approach, when he was a bit younger than you.” Maxwell smiled as memories of his younger day came flooding into his head.
“Rex was ruthless, arrogant, domineering, and temperamental. He was polite to the ladies but his short temper usually drove them away. However, the day Marissa crossed his path, Rex did the unimaginable. I have never seen my brother act like a fool in the presence of a lady. That was the day I finally understood that for every Yin, there is a Yang”
“Hmm…” Leon chuckled. “I don’t know why but anytime you relate this story to me, I can never stop myself from laughing. This story is one of the reasons why I knew my father’s heart was not made of stone. Also, I have been privileged to see his intimacy with my mum, up close. It’s truly a great sight to behold. Please uncle, can you tell me this story once more?”
“Sure, my boy, As long as it cheers you up.”
