I walked briskly into the bank, I had to deposit the bag of money given to me. It was big, but according to the person I was working for, it was little compared to what he had in store for me.
My daughter was supposed to be here, with her boss, Badmus. According to what I heard. I was to quietly make her see me, without starting a conversation with her. And it was the easiest thing.
She had so much changed, she looked more...mature, and a lot more confident. She looked pissed at a moment, probably had a bad day. But that expression didn't last long on her face, it changed immediately she saw me.
It turned cold with fear.
I pretended not to
~Elizabeth~"Make any funny movement and I'll shoot."That was the last thing I remembered. After that. Everything went black.I tried to move but my body didn't. That's when I figured I was tied down. My hands tied above my head and my feet on the cold floor.Almost too déjà vu.My head hurt so bad and my eyes were blindfolded."You're awake." I heard a masculine voice say and I stood still."W-Who are you? What do you want from me?!" I almost shouted hoping we were in an area where someone would easily hear me."S
~DAVID~"Help! I've been kid-"Just like that, the line got cut.I waited for a while, my brain processing what was happening, "What just happened?" Kelvin asked.I was as confused as he was.Her last words rang in my head all over again. What was it supposed to mean?Help...She asked for help...something was up..."David, what's wrong?" Kelvin asked again."She said help." I deadpanned............"We need to find her!" I demanded
~Elizabeth~"Yes, it's going according to plan." I heard Sandra say to her phone.After a while, she ended the call and turned to the two men with us."We're moving to phase two." She said and they nodded and left the room.It was all so confusing. There was a phase two? There were phases?!"What're you doing?" I asked her as she removed the sim from her phone and changed it to a new one."That shouldn't concern you." She replied."Look..""Shut up and do not tell me to look at anything!" She retorted immediately, cutting me off.
~DAVID~He was the one behind all this. Of course he was. I just never expected it to be him. We barely met, even when we did, just a formal conversation. So what exactly did he hold against me?"Segun what do you want?" A sigh left my mouth. I wasn't too shocked at his presence. He was a pathetic human being. Everyone knew that. All I didn't understand was why he brought Elizabeth into it."Well, you don't seem surprised, especially for someone who has been kidnapped." He smirked and I rolled my eyes."You hate me. I get it, a lot of people do. Why bring her into it? She has nothing to do with you." I spitted out."She's just beautiful." He replied, sending a disturbing smile to Elizabeth.
~SEGUN~"What Sandra?" I said to her. I really wasn't in the mood for her type of talks."It wasn't part of the deal." She said."What wasn't part of the deal?" I dipped my hands into my pocket."Killing him or molesting her." She replied and I rolled my eyes."When you put it that way," I started, taking my time to do a small laugh. "It's changes nothing. You shouldn't be dumb enough not to know that if we let any of them go alive they'll rat us out." I told her."But...""But what Sandra?!" I shouted."But David can't die." Tea
~DAVID~"Are you sure you're okay?" I asked her again."You've asked me that like a million times. I swear I'm fine. I should be asking you." She smiled softly."Just a bruised cheek. I'll be alright." I told her."I'll need you two to report a..." An officer began to speak but Kelvin interrupted him."No, if you need anything meet me. Don't spoil their love time." He pulled the officer away from us."Love time." I said more to myself than anyone else. She made it clear she didn't want anything to do with me in that aspect. So I promised not to push it.
~ELIZABETH~"You cannot just walk off like that. Not after dropping that kind of a bombshell." David pulled me back to face him."I just told you. I need to know who my father is." I shrugged and he rolled his eyes."I heard you the first time Elizabeth. What I don't understand is who that man that the police just drove out of here is." He pointed at the direction the police are drove off in."Trust me. I have no idea. He told me he wasn't my father. And didn't say any further. Now I need to vent my anger on my mother. If she truly is." I glared hard at an open space."Okay...calm down. You probably have a concussion because of all these drama. You need to relax." He held unto my shoulde
~Elizabeth~I groaned out when the alarm I had set went off. Another day, another working day. It was good, yet annoying. One way or another, David was able to talk me into coming back to work, more like forced me.Sluggishly, I got up from bed and headed to my bathroom. The cold water from my shower hit my skin and I shivered in both delight and fear of catching a cold. Closing my eyes, I let my body adjust to the feeling.Everything was going back to the way it was, my job as the personal assistant to Mr. Badmus, having to wake up very early in the morning and drive to B Corp, expecting a work load from around nine till either five, six or seven in the night.The only change now is, I don't have psychotic nightmares, neither do I have a psychotic father, my mother is well and finally, I'm dating my boss.Cliche much.
