“But,” Stella interrupted, “did the senator mention that he’s my father?” Her voice was worried.
Dennis shook his head slowly, “At the moment, the senator isn’t talking. He has been dumb since he was arrested.”
Stella placed her palms on her chest to calm her pumping heart, “Why did the IG want to
“Your mum had an affair with him and blackmailed him into doing that.” He sighed,
“The IG felt his reputation was at stake and was forced to play along.”
Her nerves began to tighten and her heart was beating fast. That was exactly what Anabel

daughter of the senator. She felt the world coming to an end and tears began coursing
down her straight cheeks. Dennis was looking at her with deep concern, “Why are you
crying?” He raised a hand, hesitated and started wiping her tears. Stella allowed his

passion of longing
She looked him in the eyes and brought her eyes to his hands, “I’m afraid the senator is my father.” She could hold her tears no longer and she began to shed tears.
Dennis stroked her arms, “I’m already aware of that.” Stella’s eyes shut up at him, baffled. He blinked, “Anabel said it and your mum has already affirmed that.” Stella’s tears grew profuse and Dennis was moved to the verge of

Stella managed to hold her stare on him,
“I’ll help you get through this.”
“How do you mean?” She wiped her tears.
“When you recover fully, I’ll tell you.”
Stella managed to smile, nodded and slept off.
