With Natalie’s involvement in the death of his parents, Shane’s relationship with her was destined to be irreparable; the intimacy of the past never again attainable.

When Sam heard that Shane wasn’t planning on investigating the matter, his heart settled back in his chest. But in the next moment, it leaped back to his throat.

“I’m not going to investigate my parents’ death, but I’ll continue investigating Grandpa’s suicide.” As soon as Shane said that, he pivoted and pinned his gaze on Sam. “Uncle Thompson, Grandpa committed suicide at Thompson residence, and you happened to be there when it happened. As such, you probably know something I don’t. Is that not so?”

“Of course not!” Sam hastily denied in a booming voice even as he guiltily averted his eyes. “Dad’s suicide was very sudden. He didn’t reveal any of his intentions before he committed suicide, so how could I possibly know anything?”

“Oh, really?” Shane naturally didn’t believe him, and his gaze remained riveted on him.


His uncle became utterly perturbed by his stare. Afraid that he would crack under the pressure and give the game away, Sam promptly made up an excuse and fled the room.

Shane didn’t stop Sam from leaving, merely staring at his retreating figure with profound eyes. The hands in his pockets gradually clenched into fists.
