Chapter 1

LUCY STEWART'S POV:

Bang!!!

I shook as I heard the sound of the gun, I couldn't move because I was gripped with fear. I grabbed my skirt with one hand while I bit the fingers on the other trying as hard as possible not to make any noise. I could hear his foot steps as I kneeled quietly beside the car whose owner obviously abandoned after hearing the gunshots.

"Oh Lucy… where are you??" The masculine voice said as he walked slowly in my direction.

I knew he would catch me sooner or later and probably kill me…

"Kill me?" I thought … "What would they gain from killing me?... They can't kill me?"

They knew the fortune they would get from my father if they hold me for ransom so yeah I'm sure as hell they won't kill me.

"Where the f*ck is my bodyguard?"

He's probably dead or somewhere choking on his own blood, I couldn't care less. I assume he could have managed to defend himself, maybe kill one or two of them before getting shot.

Pfft… so much for a bodyguard.

I knew I had to do something, because I wasn't ready to abducted by some random guys and kept in a dark room for days.

I'm still yet to get over the trauma I went through the last time something like this happened… 15 years ago. It's a pretty long time.

Well I had already made up my mind. I have to do something.

"Over here!" I squealed, raising my hands.

"Please, don't hurt me."

"Good Girl…" he snorted as he admired my body.

I could tell he was already calculating how much he would demand as ransom.

"Please…" I begged trying as hard as I can to fake the voice of a helpless lady.

It worked.

He let his guard down, he quietly lowered his gun as I approched him.

The second I saw an opening, I kicked him in his genitals as hard as I could. He groaned in pain dropping his gun.

I immediately kicked the gun away. At thag point I thought about giving him rounds of punches but I doubt my feeble hands could do anything.

Before I could take a step I heard sirens…

"Took them long enough" I thought

It was the police. "Freeze!" One of them yelled as he came out of the car.

I gently raised my hands up.

Fortunately the culprit was apprehended before he could run.

"What if I hadn't defended myself?" I thought.

Well… at least those self defence YouTube video was not a waste.

******

I found myself in the station a few hours later, wrapped in blanket with a cup of coffee in my hand.

"Lucy!!"

I could hear my dad's voice as he entered into the station.

"Where's my daughter?" He shouted sounding almost desperate.

On seeing me, he rushed to where I was.

"Did they hurt you?"

"Did they do anything to you?"

He asked as he grabbed my face tenderly observing every area of skin on it.

Well… That's my dad.

I love him but he can be a little over protective, well I don't blame him. He made a fortune at a very young age, he is a business tycoon, one of the biggest in the country.

As wealthy as he was he has also had his fair share of ups and downs in life. He lost his wife, my mother when I was a little girl. He loved her so much.

I could remember vividly how he wouldn't eat for days, he would spend all day in his room without even speaking to anyone even his beloved daughter.

Exactly why he would always hire a bodyguard to follow me around which I hated by the way.

"Daddy, the last bodyguard you hired was incompetent and was killed" I told him.

"Don't worry sweetie, I'll find you a more experienced bodyguard as soon as possible" he replied.

"Dad, I'm old enough to defend myself. I don't need someone following me around in the name of security" I whined.

I am pretty stubborn, so is my dad. I guess I got that trait from him.

"Look Lucy, I know that you are old enough to defend yourself but you are still my only child and I'm not ready to loose you" he replied.

I was slightly disgusted.

I wasn't happy… Time for operation GET RID OF THE NEXT BODYGUARD.

"No one can put up with me long enough, he'll probably get killed or I'd make him quit"

I was ready to make life miserable for the next sucker that manges to get the job as my new bodyguard.

I was very determined. Once my mind is made up, it's final.

I guess that's what it takes to be a Stewart.

****

I'm Lucy Stewart, daughter of the billionaire business tycoon Carl Stewart. My life as been a bed of roses thanks to daddy dearest.

I have never for once lacked anything and I mean anything at all. My dad always puts my happiness first.

I graduated from high school at 16 and went to the best universities in the country. I'm currently twenty one years old. I'm a fashion designer.

Although most of the clients I have worked for as due to my dad's influence.

Fifteen years ago, I and my mother was kidnapped. I watched as my mum was shot dead right before my eyes. This explained why my dad would do anything to protect me.

I never liked the idea of having a bodyguard… I never saw the need. Each time a new bodyguard was hired, he wouldn't even last up to two months before being killed.

I knew that and daddy knew that too, yet he kept hiring.

****

The next morning was a weekend, so I didn't have anything to do. I just layed on my bed, my leg stretched as I scrolled through Instagram.

Minutes later, I stood up, brushed my teeth, washed my face, and wore some clothes as I ran downstairs to get some snacks from the fridge.

On getting downstairs, I saw something or should I say someone that grabbed my attention which is rare.

I was… like… wow!!… I could barely come up with an adjective to describe him.

I stared from his abs which were clearly visible through the shirt to his perfectly symmetrical face. His eyes made my nerves tingle in a good way, I didn't realize that I had stared for too long.

I have never been this dumbstruck by a male before.

"Who are you?" I managed to mutter the question.

"The new bodyguard" he replied.

"Oh wow…" I thought.

"Maybe this won't be as bad as I thought" I said to myself while I surveyed every inch of his body.

I had a feeling this was going to be different.

Chapter 2

LUCY STEWART'S POV

I caught myself staring subconsciously at him. His heavily built stature, his broad chest which felt like it was beckoning on me to touch it.

His face was built like that of an angel. Well I haven't seen an angel before but I was almost certain that he was one.

His lips looked so smooth and succulent, his overall physique was stunning, from his head down to his legs.

"Snap out of it Lucy!" I told myself.

"You don't want a bodyguard remember?" I said to myself silently.

That's right, I should not be drooling over him, even though he might have the perfect body that every woman would kill for.

As far I was concerned, he's an enemy and he needs to be exterminated.

Although one thing did baffle me about him. He had this non challant aura that made me to loose my resolve. I am usually uptight, rude and arrogant but he'd make my insides melt without even doing or saying
