Millicent Inc. is one of the country's most successful conglomerates with interests in business development and management, both retail and manufacturing, real estate development, banking, tourism and many other fields.

With over hundreds of branches nationwide, the corporation is the dominant player when it comes to the kind of services that they offer. The foundation has various areas of advocacy, including scholarship programs, building schoolhouses, a mall-based outreach program, health care, hospital activity centers and other community projects.

As of this moment, the Board of Directors is conducting a meeting to deliberate over the company's future plans. The one who's leading this group of distinguished individuals is none other than the main proprietor himself, Adrian.

Since they're supposed to be a couple, it's only natural that she acts this way.

However, all Adrian feels for this woman is pity.

He knows that he doesn't love her back. He knows he can't ever love her back - not just simply because he doesn't feel anything towards her, but also for the reason that love itself is a nonexistent word in his vocabulary.

"President, can you excuse me for a second?" called his secretary from the side all of the sudden, wearing a weary expression.

His secretary, an attractive man with dark blue hair and eyes, will never do this in the middle of an important assembly with the Board of Directors if it's not an emergency. With that in mind, Adrian excuses himself for a moment and approaches him.

"What is it, Charles?"

"It's about your wife, President. Ma'am Cassidy has been-"
