Andrew Avram is now the Manager of InterBank. He built it with his brother in law, Dean, who unfortunately died.
Now, Dean's wife, Raluca owned a good share of the bank and a lot of venues in town.
Married to the beautyful Madeline, a prolific writer, Dean knew what he valued most in life.
He had an urge for financial power. All he could think of was how to make the bank stronger, extend its reach.
Irina, his personal assistant entered the office. "Hello Irina!" Andrew said noticing her.
"Andrew, here are the papers you asked for" the woman said making her way to his desk.
"And Raluca whishes to talk to you, should I send her in?" "Yes, of course!" "Anything else for today?" Andrew asked as the blond woman passed though the office.
"Don't forget about Madeline's book lunching, at the library, at 6:00!"
Andrew gazed for a few seconds
"Thank you for reminding me!"
"He's in a good mood right now." Irina said while looking in her friend's eyes. "I'll go in then." Raluca said smiling. "Hello Andrew, how are you today?" "I'm fine! Have a seat!" "Is there something you wanted to talk to me about?" He had asked that as Raluca sat down on the confortable chair. Raluca hesitated for a second.
"I'm willing to sell my share of the InterHotel. I just wanted to let you know."
"You are selling? Now? Can't you wait for a few weeks?" "I'm afraid not! I've thought about it lately, and I know it's the best decision I can afford right now" "I've told you once that you shouldn't sell that hotel to anyone else but me, still you do not listen!"
Andrew screamed.
Raluca was furious.
"I don't need you to tell me what to do! I don't want your money, and I'm sick of your orders!"
"I'll be going now!" the woman replied. "Goodbye, Andrew!" Andrew did not say a word. He was furios and afraid that he'd lose his temper. The Library was buzzing with people that night. "Foster Hearts", Madeline Avram's new roamnce novel was a sensation.
As she stood on the scene, talking about her book, Andrew could not listen. He had too many things to think about.
"She looks gorgeous!" Raluca told Irina.
"She deserves succes." Irina replied.
Andrew's attention was caught by one man. He had never met him before, but still he seemed strangely familliar with Madeline. "Who is he?" Andrew asked himself.
The unknown man had a strange way of looking at Madeline, a way that Andrew disliked.
Andrew stared at the stranger for a few minutes,
"Look at him! He's just staring at her!" Andrew though.
As Madeline and her husband were walking back home, she turned to him and asked:
"What did you think of the book?"
"It was good..."
"You haven't even read it."
"Who was that man?"
"Which one?"
"The one next to the scene, brown hair, with a hoodie?"
"Just some friend of Sandra's."
"I hate the way he ws looking at you!" Andrew shrieked in the night.
"You shouldn't be jelous!" Madeline said.
"I know, I should never doubt you. I'm sorry" Andrew said, calming his voice.
Madeline was in pain. Her hear was beating fast.
"If you go on acting this way, you will lose me forever."
Andrew watched, speechless as his wife got into a cab and went away on the dark streets of the town.
He stood there, under the streetlight, alone and heartbroken. Madeline had betrayed him, and he knew it for sure.
