“Did you talk to him? What did he say, Mr Daud?” The old man asked worriedly. From the corner of his eye, he saw his daughter listening to him keenly. Her face held restlessness and she was anxiously tapping on the wooden table’s surface with her pointed manicured red painted nails.
The man on the other side sighed before he answered something very unexpected and saddening to them that he could feel his heart skip a beat.
“He won’t be—but he promised us! You promised us, Mr Daud! How could he do this?!” Colour drained from his daughter’s face when she heard her father almost yelling at the man on the other side. He was upset. So damn upset!
Her eyes squinted when her father stopped yelling just to do it again with a lot more anger than before.
“What the hell! This is ridiculous! Look, Mr Daud, if your son couldn’t make it happen then I’ll destroy the damn reputation of—”
His jaw clenched and before he could answer Mr Daud—Sanam, the call disconnected and he cursed a bunch of profanities while banging his mobile over the table.
“What was that, dad?” His daughter asked carefully, narrowing her eyes, ready to listen to her father, her heart racing inside her chest and her face turning red due to fury. She was expecting something very rude and disappointing and she was ready to face it.
“He isn’t coming back. They said he got busy in some—”
“Well, I know his busy thing! Guess what, dad? He’s this crazy because of that ridiculous bloody bitch!” She got up, banging her fist on the table so carelessly that the face of the wristwatch in her hand broke and one of the pieces pierced into her skin, drawing blood out.
“Gabby!” His father tried to hold her arm because he noticed the side of her palm bleeding, but Gabriella was too busy to notice that.
She gritted out and walked upstairs, shouting, “I’m leaving for India right now, dad! I’ll confront him and make him remember his promise and I swear…” she turned to glare at him as she completed, “I swear if I got my hands on her, I’ll kill her right there. I’ll give her a painful death and make sure she would be sorry for barging into my and my Christian’s life!”
She closed the door of her room with a loud bang that caused him to flinch on his spot because that was the first time he saw such a psycho and wrathful side of his daughter.
And there on the other side, Hazel was excited as well as panicked because she was finally out of that place.
Hazel and Irene planned to escape from the mansion after everyone fell asleep and they succeeded. The help they got on the way also made it easier for them to escape from there.
It was two o’clock in the morning of the next day. She was standing at the train station in that city with her friend Irene carrying a bag containing some of her belongings. And both of them were accompanied by Irene’s friend who was there to help them as Irene talked about him.
As Hazel heard, Irene knew Kevin for two years. He had earned her trust and that is why she chose him. Although Irene had told her that her and Kevin’s relationship was so strong that she could trust him, Hazel did not want to ask her any questions related to Kevin.
She could see the generosity in Kevin’s eyes and his aura did not scream danger at all. He looked fine, he felt fine. And the gut feelings could not be wrong.
“Just five minutes more. It’s on the way. We only have to travel for half a day to reach there.” Kevin held Irene’s hand in a firm grip and received an understanding nod from her and Hazel.
As he said, five minutes later the train arrived on which they boarded and started on their journey.
All they had to do was travel to that city and everything was going to be a relief after that. According to Kevin, he would get more access— in his birthplace, so neither of them wanted any trouble coming their way in between. Freedom from them was only a few hours away.
“Escaped?” He whispered to himself, while the officers took Eliseva out of the mansion. The girls were also under custody, following Eliseva. Some of them were happy while some were sad. Like Rabiya, Rukaiya and her friends who did not feel anything wrong with that work. Still thinking about her, he went to the officer, asking about the girls. “You’re right, Mr Daud. Three girls are missing. One of them is now freed but the others…” “Escaped.” He completed it for the officer. He nodded curtly, before elaborating. “The girls are Irene Johnson and Hazel Paulose. We’re sending the cops to get their information. The paths are also blocked. Nobody’s allowed to go out of the area without checking. We’ll find them soon.” The officer assured Christian but he was not convinced. His heart was not going to get peace until his eyes got the look on her face. Since yesterday. It has been a complete twenty-four hours he spent in restlessness. He came here just to take her back but she had alr
“Christian!” Gabriella shrieked, anxiously marching into his house. There was silence in his living room. Darkness spread around, mixed with that silence. Her voice boomed between the walls but nothing bothered her. She was furious. “Christian!” She called him again, heading to his room, and hurriedly ascending the stairs. She held the railing as she started running upstairs, not caring about her feet as she was running on heels. She was anxious, angry and anticipated. She was dealing with a lot more than what people could see. There was turmoil inside her. “Listen to me!” She banged on the door which was opened. She went inside and at the same moment, Christian walked out of his bathroom, wearing a pair of sweatpants. Water droplets were hanging through his hair. Some of them were resting on his dark eyelashes. His amber eyes were narrowed. His jaw was set and he looked annoyed. Of course, he heard her yelling while he was taking a bath. She sounded crazy and he needed to throw h
This is flashback *****“Gabby,” he whispered, shaking her shoulder a bit. She squirmed, groaning, showing she did not want to get up but Christian was shocked beyond measure. He had no idea how he ended up there. With Gabriella. And how was that even possible? He did not even look at her that way. “Gabby,” he called her again, sounding slightly worried.He knew he would never do such a thing when he was sober then how did it happen? Was he wasted? So wasted that he did not even notice that the girl was his friend. He could not believe himself! Suddenly his eyes formed tears when he realized how filthy he worked last night. Though he had no clue how he ended up in that position, he knew it was only his mistake that he could not even deny his desires. You should have at least spared your friend, you asshole! The voice inside his head boomed and he clutched his forehead, trying to remember last night. Well, nothing helped him and then, Gabriella also woke up, yawning next to him whi
“This is why, Gabby, this is the sole reason I’m still not able to move on. I’m still stuck. Your deception has caged me. I can barely trust anyone. Sometimes I even doubt my parents and my sister. I’m so sick of this! And this all because of you!” She could not say further. All she could do was shed tears, remembering the same night. Wish she could change the past. Maybe Christian was right, if Gabriella had let the time and the almighty decide everything — if she would had become a little kind, then he would have fallen for her. After all, falling for your friend, especially a best friend was never a hard thing. If she had waited, maybe today everything would have been happening according to her wish, but she spoiled everything. She became the destroyer of her own happiness. “When I brought her, I still meant to marry you because this is what my parents want. Though I started finding peace in her, I knew I’ll have to marry you,” because he knew someone so pure like her would nev
The deafening noise filled the whole room. The smell of alcohol and sweat pervaded there. Adnan, who was sitting somewhere in the middle of that noise, was getting intoxicated by alcohol. The fire in his body and the old memories in his mind kept his anger on the seventh sky. He was just trying to keep himself but nothing was working with him.And even in this state of his anger, he felt like laughing because he was quite sure that because of that girl, he was getting so crazy, today he was in such a state of intoxication. This means after all she had run away from that place, and this thing was bothering him a lot. He only wanted to spend one night with her but it was becoming too difficult for him. Whatever path he adopted, all those problems were standing in front of him to keep him away from her and this time, she ran away from him. He did not even know where. But he wanted to know. Today when he went to the brothel, he found that place closed. He found some police cars there
He was working in his office. His eyes were not ready to move away from the papers kept in front of him but his mind was somewhere else. The fresh light coming into the room was enough to show that it was afternoon while doing this and the cops had not yet responded. Just an answer was needed and their silence was telling that they could not catch Hazel’s location yet. He sighed, leaning backwards and closing his eyes. They burnt from the inside but he did not pay attention to it. Forgetting to blink in worry is not a big deal. The same happened to him. The door of his office opened and that grabbed his attention yet he did not make a quick move to look at the person who entered his office. “Dad?” He whispered, frowning a bit. He found his father coming to him and behind him, there was another man whom Christian totally ignored after he got a glimpse of his old skin. He looked away, displeased and right then, his father threw the day’s newspaper on his desk, causing him to sigh lou
But Austin could not find peace this easily. He was disturbed, enraged, and probably wanted to strangle someone to death. And why just someone else when he had a clear reason for it? He dialled Robert’s number while he stormed out of the building. “I want that girl — what’s her name? Christian’s favourite whore, what the fuck is her name?” He seethed, clutching the mobile tight in his hold. “Hazel Poulose.” “Yes, Hazel. I want her dead, Robert. Find her and kill her right on the spot!” “What?!” Robert was startled. “But why?” “Don’t question me, Robert! Just do as I say! Kill that girl and send me the proof!” “Sir, you’re angry right now, don’t make decisions right now. You may regret it later,” he tried to make Austin understand but nothing could enter his brain at that time. He was seeing red. He was upset also. He was nervous, too. He knew it would devastate Gabriella. She would do something awful and they would regret it together, so before she did something in anger, he wan
Three days had passed, entangled him in her search. No doubt he was desperate to get her like he was never so desperate for anyone but she made him react that way — react like a caveman but he did not care at all. He was so lost in searching for her that he could not see anything else around him. He forgot his office work. Forgot to eat. Even forgot to sleep for those damn three days. It was like she had wrapped him around her finger and had no idea about that. He was becoming crazy for her. Just in that time, how was that possible, he had no time to wonder. All his time would be spent just thinking about her. Where did she disappear? Is she safe in that place? Is she happy there? Has she gone there and made a fresh start? Has she forgotten all that has happened in the past? Will she have forgotten… him too? There he felt as if his heart was pierced or cut by something so edgy. Just that single thought had scared him. That was really scary. He did not want her to forget him. No way!
