Endless Night || Heartless City Sequel
Chapter Eight – Teaser
“Who the hell are you?”
Soo-min turned, hand still on the latch, to see the same girl she’d run into the other night, the one who had been trying to take care of an injury in the ladies’ room. A Lily. She was standing in the middle of lavish suite, hands in the middle of adjusting her clothing, while she took in Soo-min’s unexpected appearance. Soo-min, for her own part, was trying to come up with an excuse that wouldn’t bring security running in. The girl’s eyes narrowed when her question went unanswered.
“I heard nothing about a second girl requested for entertainment, so what—”
The girl’s question was interrupted as the door opened, almost catching Soo-min in the face. She moved quickly towards the center of the room, stopped only by the Lily’s catching of her arm.
“I don’t know who the hell you are but if you screw this up we’re both in trouble,” She hissed. “For now follow my lead or I swear….” Her grip relaxed as she gave a million-watt smile to the man who had entered the room, “Mr. Chairman! How are you doing today?”
Soo-min saw the Lily walk up to a round, elderly gentleman and brush a kiss against his cheek. He responded with a friendly pat on her cheek, before looking at Soo-min. He was old enough to be her grandfather, and the look he gave her sent shudders down her spine.
“Mr. Chairman, we have a special surprise for you tonight. We have some additional entertainment. This is…” The Lily paused.
“Mina. My name is Mina.” Soo-min forced a smile to her face. For a split second the Chairman’s face wavered and another appeared in its place. Soo-min had thought she had forgotten what Busan’s son looked like, that she’d buried the memories of that night, but she recognized the same depraved look in the Chairman’s eyes. She needed to be very, very careful.
Author’s Note: Apologies for the delay in chapter release, this is the best I can do for now! Chapter Eight should be coming out Wednesday! It’s quite a long chapter with events occurring that will impact the entire series. Readers will also finally get a bit of insight into Paksa and his five years spent abroad. Oh yeah, and steam…
