A few minutes later, Scott stopped breathing. He’s dead for real.“That’s enough, Ruby. Give me the knife.” Caleb snatched it away from her. It almost has cut his palm in the force.“First of all, how did you even get a knife?”“I found a lot of knives in this room. I got one before Scott came here.” Ruby replied. On the other side, Charlotte was crying so hard.“Please, don’t leave me, Jason. You don’t deserve to die.” She sobbed, hugging him. Jason is too weak to reply to her.“Call 911. Jason’s dying.” Charlotte ordered her siblings. Caleb heard her and took his phone. Will it be too late?“What are we going to do with the body? Should be hidden this murder too?” Caroline asked with fear.“No. The game’s over. There’s no point in repeating the same mistakes again and again.” Ruby said wisely.“Then what are you suggesting, Ruby?” Chloe asked.
Ruby went down the stairs as Charlotte and Chloe followed her. Without having much of a choice, Caleb, Caroline, and Jason followed them. They all ended up in a single room full of many monitors, full black suits in a closet, some electronics like laptops, tabs, cables etc... Caroline stepped carefully without getting trapped in the cables.“Is this Scott’s place to monitor us?” Caroline asked.“What the fuck are you talking about?” Charlotte asked, in complete shock. Her sister hasn’t told the truth yet.“Scott is the threatener, Char. We are sure of it.” Caleb said, without a doubt.“Wow, a teacher is capable of all these things. His death is coming closer.” Ruby surely said. At the same moment, the large monitor in the middle of the room lightened up.“Congratulations, Caleb. You are right. It’s me, Scott. All this time. By the way, I’m not the one who’s going to die. It’s going to be you,
“Scott? Charlotte’s best friend. The one who came to see her in the court.” Caleb asked for clarification.“Yeah, it’s him. How is he related to Becca? What’s his relationship with her? If Char knows something, she would have told us,” Care wondered and saw someone standing alone on the road.“Is it Jason? Am I right? Can you stop the car, Cal?” she asked as her brother did what she said.“Hey, what are you doing here? Is there any problem?” she asked from the window.“Um...yes...no. I’m not in any trouble. I was just lost in thoughts. I was about to reach home. What are you doing here? You both can’t wander anywhere while the threatener can be anywhere.”“We know. We...” Care turned to her brother. “Can we get help from him in searching all this evidence?”“Do you think it’s a good idea? We can’t get him in any trouble again.”“Yeah. I don’t know but I feel like we sho
“So, what are we doing now?” Chloe asked while keenly entering all the rooms in their house and looking for cameras.“We are going to Becca’s house. How many times do I have to say this?”Caleb let out a sign and made his way out of their house.“Without a plan?” Care questioned.“We will figure it out on the way,” He replied. Everyone joined him in the car except Chloe.“Hey, aren’t you coming?” Char asked.“No. We really have to find the secret basement and the cameras. I can’t take my mind off it since Ruby said it.”“But we can’t leave you here all alone. Come with us,” Care said. But Chloe is stubborn this time.“I guess someone has to be with her. It’s time for a split-up,” Charlotte said, getting out of the car.They all agreed. Care and Caleb are on their way to Ruby’s house.“So, what’s your plan? Do you have one?”
I couldn’t believe. That the threatener had a secret basement in their own house. The siblings are ready to find the basement. First, they have to cross the first challenge. Trail in the court. It was pretty rough. All they got to have is hope. The undefeatable hope. The anxiety continues to rule in the court until the siblings heard the most important word ever. The one word that could make them feel happier after an eternity.“.... Not guilty,”The siblings almost yelled in happiness and hugged each other. The lawyer looked at them with satisfaction and he glanced back at Daniel. Who’s the reason for their happiness.Caroline broke into her hug with Char and approached Daniel. “Thank you so much. I will never forget this. Ever in my life. I thought everything’s over.... but then...” she got emotional.“Hey, it’s okay. Everything’s alright now. Hereafter, you all even get to be safe from the threatener.
“Stop your useless argument and warnings. No one’s going to do anything to anyone.” Care shouted from her throat.“Why would you think so less of me?” Char asked.“It’s not about that. Right now, this is not the right conversation.”“I will get to the point. We need help from you, Ruby. And you won’t be saying ‘no’ to that. I’m sure of it,” Care added.“Really? What’s your request? Let me hear it.”“We four of us will be out of prison after the trial in the court. Since the killer is standing right in front of me, we will be free in some weeks. Plus, what Charlotte did was self-defence and we will even get extra protection in our house to protect us from the threatener. The detective is searching for him without sleep...”“Okay. Stop it. Come to the point. I don’t want to hear all your advantages,” Ruby interrupted her.“Fine. Tell me everything you know about MW. Tell
Meanwhile, Jason was talking with Charlotte. He can only wish to be in jail with her. On the other side, Ian came to visit Chloe. Chloe’s mood brightened after seeing Ian, but her fury grew after seeing another person.“What’s up, Chloe? Do you like it here?” Taylor spoke on the telephone.“What are you doing here? You already ruined my life. What else do you want?”“I want nothing. I just came to see you as a friend,”“Friend? Those days passed a long time ago.” Chloe laughed. All that Chloe can do is imagine herself breaking the glass without them and beat Taylor. She imagined herself killing Taylor with cold-blooded hands. Even if she’s not capable of it, she can change herself.“What are you thinking?” Taylor snapped her fingers.“Nothing. Just wishing that you could die one day,”.....Caleb preferred not to talk with anyone. He’s not even ready to meet
“Hey there, friends. What are you all talking about?” Ruby interrupted the four of them after she finished her enquiry with the detective.“First of all, we are not your friends. Whatever we are talking about is none of your business. Do you understand, Ruby?” Caroline said.“Nope. I don’t. We all were friends once. Why can’t it happen again?”“Because you betrayed us,” Caleb replied. Ruby stared at him and left. Soon, they were back in the cell. There’s no hope of getting out of here. At least for a while. But Ruby will be in jail for more than a year. She deserves it. That’s all anyone could say.Finally, the day has arrived. When all the siblings got a chance to meet their friends. Whoever is willing to see them.Caroline took the telephone, watching Daniel on the other side through the glass. Yes, it’s Daniel, and he’s here to see her.“Hey,” he spoke on the telephone, unsure o
