***P.s:(Mature content below! At readers risk)---"Paris?!" She exclaimed hen she looked at their ticket."Stop yelling honey, you're becoming the centre of attraction.""I or we?" He shrugged. "Nevertheless, how did you know that I wanted to go to Paris?""I asked you remember. At the restaurant? You said it was a pretty city and I took it that you always dreamed of coming here but don't worry, we have other countries to visit."Her mouth went agape."Other countries!" She exclaimed for the nth time and he was forced to look around. She envelope him in a tight hug."Thank you!" He smiled when he regained himself." I don't know what I would do without you""Probably nothing but-ouch!""Spoiler!" She pinched his nose but
***"Did you know you were pregnant?"--An honest answer, he wanted an honest answer?Tears welled up in her eyes almost immediately as guilt welled up in her chest."Baby," He tried again but She released her hands from his hold all the while looking away. It was then he got the clue.She knew!"Tell me it's not-" he scoffed. "Why didn't you tell me? Was it not that important that you refuse to tell me?" When she did not answer, he cursed combing his hair in frustration before beginning to walk away."Daniel...Daniel please wait.... Please don't leave." He stopped. His legs ached to move back to her but he decided against it. She needed to know he was upset with her, very upset."It was important. I wouldn't dream of hiding such a thing from you but I didn
***Now they mourn her,All they've achieved with her will no longer be real but only in memories. Her hair glittering in the morning light and her eyes that could light up your heart and if you weren't careful to the extent of a burn.At least that was what her husband would say.But now, she would only be remembered and seen in the mind and in pictures.Daniel combed his hair in frustration. All he ever wanted was a fairytale where he would have his happy ever after, but things turned out worse because he had lost one of the most important persons he supposed to share his happiness with.He was hurt. Fate didn't give her a chance to even say she was sorry for all her misdeed!But just as they said, "I forgive you mom,"When there's a beginning, there has to always be an en
***All he worked hard for couldn't go down the drain.No, no, no!Not like this,There wascommotion in his surrounding and all he could think of next was to mingle with the crowd.---"Stay where you are or I will shoot her!" He yelled and there was no movement. He gentlypulled Clarissa away hoping to get to the door in time."Put the Gun down Nicholas, it's over." Darius said."No, it's not. It can't be over till I say so!" He yelled back."You shouldn't do this, put the gun down." Darius tried again but he shook his head furiously."You guys always ruin everything for me! Can't I get what I want for once. She and I are supposed to be gone by dawn but no, you always ruin everything, you ruined EVERYTHING!!" His voice echoed around the room that Clari
***"So you knew all along?" Clarissa asked."I knew that you liked him. What can I say? He's quite the lady's man but I didn't know that you were in love with him and I never knew that he secretly had feelings for you."Kara gave her a sad smile. Everything Clarissa thought she kept to herself was never a secret. Maybe she really did a bad job at hiding how she felt. Darius was right."I was so focused on getting your cousin married to my son for her reputation and for my son's happiness that I didn't look at what it would result to. When I found out that things were turning out bad, I tried to get your husband to divorce you."Clarissa frowned. "Why would you want to separate us?""That was what I thought myself. I was definitely meeting a dead end trying to separate two people that are madly in love with each other. But then, do you also
***"What did you say your name was?""Anthony Evans and yes, I witnessed the kidnapping of Clarissa Isaiah on the on the 19th of November, 2015." Gabriel nodded for him to go on and so, he continued."I was on my way back from the cemetery. I never visited my son and that is because he wasn't dead. I visited my wife instead. I told my son not to walk too fast, he was the one that really witnessed what went on that day. Before I could get to my son, one of them was already taking her inside their own car.""One of them? You said it was only one person that was involved in the kidnapping." Gabriel said to him."I said it because that was what he wanted me to say. The other one threatened the life of my son with a neck to his neck. He was the one that told me to lie so I can save the life of my son.""It could be possible that he was frightened by
***Clara froze on the spot as the voice echoed around the room. She just had to do one thing and she messed up. Now what was he going to think?Daniel frowned when he saw the owner of the Chestnut hair. So she was planning to steal from him after all. He knew she was up to no good when she returned from California."I said, what the fuck are you doing in my room?!""I...em... papers. I mean, I wanted to...I was looking for papers i-" she paused when his strides stopped in front of her.Daniel scanned the fairly displaced items in the room before looking at her with coldness."Get out," he said."Your mom, she's going to-""I said, get out!" She hurried away from him but stopped at the door when she saw Darius staring back at her in confusion."What is going on here?
***The short Blondie stared nervously into the night. He dialed a phone number on the public telephone, tapping nervously as it rang. Immediately it was picked, he spoke."Hello, it's Tony.""Did you do what I asked you to do?" The hoarse voice asked."Yes, I did. Now can...can I please have my son back?" Tony asked."Perfect. I hope no one found out about it?""No, they didn't find out. Please can I have him now?"The laughter he heard over the phone gave him the chill. "You want him alive don't you?""I did what you asked me to do. Now give me back my son!""Answer the damn question?!" Tony mumbled a yes. "Come before midnightIf you're early, I can begenerous."Tony's grip on the telephone tightened as he held back his frustration. He hasn't b
***Darius had now confirmed his doubt. He sighed replaying her conversation the other day.(Flashback)Having his jacket on his shoulders, Darius walked out of his room. He was a minute late for his shift and so he hurried down the passage. He quickly took out his phone, sending a call to Gabriel to cover up for him. He frowned when he heard a disturbing shriek. Ending the call, he walked further into another corner of the passage, where the noise came from. It was his wife's parents room. He remembered Audora going out to get groceries along with a servant while the office was busy lately. That left Kara and him, then who could she be angry at?..."Jack, I didn't cause her death okay? How would I have known she worked there? Now for your benefits, don't call me ever again, do you hear me?.
