She had been so happy when she had found out about being pregnant. Finally, finally Leo would spare her a glance. Finally he would be hers. Afterall the Wolffs were notoriously family-oriented. She had been in the high heavens, going all the way to Leos office, where she was forbidden- surely, she had thought, Leo would be so happy, so excited, that he would not mind. So she had sat in the reception area, vibrating with excitement, not at all caring for the looks of disdain being cast her way by the receptionists, nothing she had thought dreamily, would destroy her day. The skies had never been bluer, the air fresher, she was in a bubble of euphoria, floating in space.

But her bubble had been burst, and she had been brought crushingly down onto earth. For in being let into the haloed grounds that were the office of the chairman of Wolff international, Leo had told her in stilted tones, she had but five minutes to state her case. Normally Glen would have backed down, for much as she loved Leo Wolff, he was like a god to her. She loved and feared him in equal measure. But this time she was too happy and so she had blurted out their good news. In an instant, his harsh face became more grim than usual. For a man who usually had his emotions sealed up tight in her presence, he had looked like someone who was struggling mightily to keep his expression absolutely in control, even though the muscles were jumping his jaw, cords tightening in his neck and his lips were thinned almost to the point of non-existence. Then in an almost savage movement, he had moved swiftly to her side, his eyes were smoldered in such murderous rage that for a second she thought he might strike her. Then as if gaining control of his emotions, a shatter had come down his face, blanking his anger, and in an icy even tone he said, ”I have no respect for you, Glenda, but even you, someone who sold herself to the highest bidder, a whore, cannot believe me so stupid as to pass off your bastard as my child. A whore like you who I am sure does not know who the father is? By God, you will know that I am not to be trifled with. Do you honestly think you can dishonor me and get away with it? Get out of here, you and the bastard you carry, before I destroy you with my bare hands. ”

Glenda was so shocked and frightened that like someone under a powerful spell, she had walked blindly towards the open door. She had walked past the secretariat who pretended not to have heard. Once outside and in a taxi, bewilderment, anger, disbelief, misery but most of all an anguished humiliation, swept through her, that in her pain she sought out her harbor, she had gone to the only person who loved her unconditionally .That was when all hell broke lose.
