" He what? " Maisie asked in surprise.
" He was responsible for my first accident. " Zach said as Maisie collapse on her chair.
Maisie knew that something was going on when Zach didn't want his family with him but she would have never suspected the reason was this. " Are you sure? " Maisie asks Zach and when Zach glared at her she hurriedly continued. " I mean I always felt like something was off with Jeffery. Like, he was putting on an act but this is too far. " Maisie stood up unable to sit still anymore. " I mean why would he do that. "
" Because he is my next of kin who is set to inherit everything when I die. I am sure that he decided to hurry the process of me dying. " Zach answered in a bitter tone.
Maisie stopped her pacing to look at her boyfriend who was certainly angry. Both at himself and Jeffery. " It wasn't your fault. There was no way that you would know what
" Maisie, where are you. "Zach's voice came through the instant the call went through. "Tracking down some leads. " Maisie replied. " Maisie, it could be dangerous.... " Zach started. " Yes it could've but I will not sit down on my ass and wait for you to recover quicker just so that you can do the same thing I am doing, " Maisie snapped at Zach. " If you won't sit on your ass, I swear that when I do see you. I will spank that ass. " Zach threaten as Maisie laugh." Is that supposed to discourage me. " Maisie asked as Zach growled." Where are you. Tell me so that I can come to get you. " " Like I will do anything that stupid. " Maisie rolls her eyes at Zach even though she knew that he couldn't see her. " I am serious. " " So I am. I wil
" Hello. This is Jeffery. "Jeffery said answering the unknown number calling him. " Hello! This is Tim from Hugo Financial Auditors office. "Jeffery stopped what he was doing. He recognized that name anywhere. He paid them to help him balance the accounts of his firm when it was still under him. And he visited them when Zach woke up to tell them that if anybody comes looking at clues that he should be informed. And although he paid heavily for that message to stick. He was glad that he spent the amount now. " Go on. " Jeffery said relaxing back into his seat. " We had a visit from a lawyer with your firm today. "" Okay," Jeffery said with a sigh of relief. They thought that he was still in charge of the firm. It was a good thing that Zach changed his ways of spraying his face all over the media when he woke up. He was going to have to distract Zach from that
Zach opened his door to a nightmare he hoped he will never see again. Maisie hanging from Cassidy's arms looking like she had just survived a fight with death. " What happened? " Zach asked as he stepped out of the doorway and allow Cassidy to enter. " She drowned. " Cassidy said as Zach turned sharply to look at him. " And what was she doing in the water by this time of the night. " Zach asked because he could sense that Cassidy was keeping something from him. " It would be better if you don't know. " Cassidy said after being quiet for a while when Zach asked the former question. " Why would she go near the water at this time of the night, Cass. " Zach asked in a firm tone which meant that he would not be moved from the issue.Cassidy sighed. He had tried his best. "She must have gotten a message that states tha
" You nearly killed me. " Maisie said as soon as her lunch date sat looking nervous. He scanned the restaurant three times before he relaxed. If he had only known that there was a small camera that was recording his conversation with Maisie and playing it to some detectives who were in an unmarked car at the restaurant parking lot. Tim looked pale, " I- I do-don't know what you are talking about. " "That wasn't very convincing. " Maisie said with a glare " your phone sent the text that nearly made me died. I should call the police and have them arrest you. "Tim swallowed opposite her. " I never sent you any kind of. " " Sure. You didn't, your phone did that all on its own then when I arrived at the location I was sent to. I was attacked so let's see who the police will believe. " " I am sorry but I didn't send it. My phone is missing and I got a new one. "
Jeffery frowned at the news which Vivi had just told him about his brother. He could not believe that Zach could do that, he would not do that unless he remembers. He should have found a way to make sure that Zach had never woken up from that coma and then he would fired Maisie from the moment he saw her. And now he would have to do something drastic because warning, threats and attempted murders are no longer enough. Jeffery was not as dumb as to believe that he could get away with killing his brother and his fiancée but since he was already going down he has no problem with dragging those two with him.Jeffery turned and look at Vivi, if he was less jaded, he would have smiled at her loyalty, he knew with all certainty that if it has not been him but his brother in this calamity, Vivi would have cut her loses a while ago, but she stayed with him and with the way she is giving him information which are useful to him like his brother words and the order he would soon get from
Maisie arrived at the location which Jeffery had sent her with her nerves going crazy. She knew that she could be dead before Zach got there she just hopes that Betty and Zach should be alright after this whole incident." Well, well we'll. Look who came. " Jeffery said as he came out from behind a pillar and Maisie jumped in shock." Where is Betty. " Maisie asked in a small voice." Why, you don't want to hang out with your future brother in law. I heard Zach proposed to you and you said no. " Jeffery said making small talks as Maisie try to hedge far away from him." None of that. " Jeffery warns as Maisie froze.Maisie had to try a couple of times before the word could leave her throat. " None of what? "Jeffery scoffs at Maisie as he moved towards her. Maisie didn't dare to shift back in case he decided to punish Zach for her acti
Zach arrived at the location in which Jeffery wanted him to go and he saw Maisie on the floor bleeding. " Oh look. The lovesick boy came. "Jeffery said with a laugh. " And with twenty minutes to spare. Tell me, how many traffic laws did you break. " " I lost count after the first ten. " Zach replied as Jeffery let out a laugh. " Then let's get to business I am sure that you would like Maisie to leave here soon so we should start. " Jeffery said as he stood up and walked to Zach holding his gun out. " I would love to shoot you but it would not be satisfying enough. " " Then what do you want to do now. " Zach asked Jeffery.Jeffery stopped in front of Zach " Well, I would love to beat you into a pulp first. " Jeffery said as he hit his gun against Zach's head as Zach fell." Come on Zach. With your ability to survive being hit by a car, you should rem
Moving to another city is stressful for the average person who doesn't like to move. It is even more so for Maisie who had never left her city since she was born. Okay so maybe she moved around when she was little but could not remember anymore. What she does know is that she has been in one city since forever and now she is no longer there.And that thought is scary, scary but real for her, she had time to get used to the idea of her moving to a new city while she was in school. After all, she got accepted by the firm where she relocated to while she was still in school. She was brilliant and her employer acknowledged this.Now if she was half as comfortable as she was brilliant, she knew that she would make a big hit but sadly she was not. Her lifeline was not in the present, her lifeline was about a sweet crazy friend whose name was Bethany (shortened Betty) and who still holds the first position on Maisie scale of crazy people she
