The Fractured Addictions Series – Prequel
“I am not getting back at you. I just do not think you are capable.” Laura stilled at Royce’s words.
“Jamar is undoubtedly skilled. His lack of emotional attachment also makes him clearheaded and
perfect for this.”
“You do not think… I am capable?” her voice faltered; his words felt like a punch to her gut.
“I’m tired, Laura.” With a dismissive wave, Royce turned and began to walk away. “This
conversation is over.”
He had taken no more than two steps when she spoke. “What more do you want?” She
Asked, barely containing her anger. “Against all odds, I have built my career. I fought tooth and
nail to be where I am, but you still think I am not capable.”
Royce halted, his back still to her. “I am not against your career. Although I must admit, I do lack
enthusiasm for you to have a career, but it is your life. However, I will not sit back and watch you
bury yourself in it. Then blindly pick a wrong partner when it is time to settle down.” He paused.

Freezing silence filled the room.
Her mother had passed away years ago after a long battle with cancer. Laura had taken her death
harder than anyone else. Royce and Laura hardly spoke of her. Her father had buried himself in
his work, organizing the hospital and increasing his status as a billionaire. His hospital, which
was one of his many organizations, was recognized as one of the country’s top medical centers.
Recognized for creating opportunities to make research fully funded by charities in search of cures
for viruses. Also, aimed at achieving total comfort for patients regardless of their health status.
Although Royce was a lot of things but a philanthropist, he was geared towards health promotion
which explained why he spent a lot on research. In the process, he had earned himself a fortune
and gained a respectable reputation. Only a month ago, he had been named among the top ten richest
people in the world.
He had built a wall, a man always in meetings without giving himself the space to grieve, but Laura
had been more open about her feelings and had sought ways to fill up the void.

As Michael came out of the boardroom, he rushed to the elevator and hopped into it. Hurriedly,
he pressed hard the button going to the first floor. On his way down, he tried calling Julie, but it
rang for a minute, and then, hung up. After getting out of the elevator, he walked towards the
company’s garage. The staff at the reception bowed their heads as they saw him approaching, but
he didn’t take notice of their gesture.
Everything in his head seemed blank.
The only thing that filled his mind was JULIE!
An Image of JULIE!
He didn’t want to lose her.
He couldn’t even think of losing her.
Not at this point.
Not now, when he finally started to feel what it was like to be in love again.
The warmth he felt as their bodies intertwined!
The comfort he felt as their souls were lost to each other!
The pleasurable pain of immersing themselves into one another!
He wasn’t going to let go of that!
He was going to fight for them!
He was going to protect her.
