She woke up with a slight headache, and couldn't make sense of her environment. Selina sat up and glanced at the room, then it finally dawned on her that she's in a hospital. She looked around to see if the man that brought her there was around, but unfortunately; he wasn't. Just when she's about to get up, a nurse walked in and administered it to her. " Good morning, Miss." She greeted and Selina widened her eyes. She couldn't believe that it's another day, and she wondered how long she'd been lying there. Suddenly, Mr Lucas walked in, both hands in his pocket." Good morning Sir!" Greeted the nurse." Thank you, how is she?" He asked." She's okay now, I have to report to the Doctor. Please excuse me." With that, the nurse walked away. Selina averted her gaze quickly when he finally turned to her. She rubbed her hands together, and put her lips into her mouth." Good morning. How are you feeling?" Mr Lucas asked and sat beside her on the bed." I'm fine, thank you." She replied."
" isn't that Mr Lucas?" Someone said" Oh my goodness, what happened to the woman with him?" Another responded." This is my first time of seeing him with a woman," said a third. "I thought he'll remain a bachelor forever!"" How I wish I'm the one, the girl is so lucky. Is that his wife?" The fourth person said."Mr Lucas!" A girl screamed.The crowd erupted into a low murmur as the man emerged, carrying Selina in his arms. Some people started taking photos with their phones, while others attempted to get closer to the pair, only to be blocked by the man's bodyguards. Selina was shocked by the scene, and she felt unable to speak. She just clung to the man, wishing she could make sense of everything that is happening."You're going to be okay," Mr. Lucas reassured Selina, who was still groaning in pain. Then, he turned to his bodyguards. "Open the door!" The door was opened and Mr. Lucas carefully lifted Selina and settled her into the car, went in as well, shutting the door behind hi
Selina alighted from the car, and walked into the premises. As she approached the building, she saw a man in a suit stepping out of the elevator. She tried to sidestep him, but they ended up bumping into each other. In that split second, Selina felt herself losing her balance, and was sure she would fall. But then, the man's hand shot out and caught her, steadying her on her feet. She looked up at him, and their eyes met for a moment. There was something in his eyes that made her feel safe, and she found herself relaxing in his grip.But suddenly, something slipped into her mind as she saw the mark on his elbow. " Just in case you don't know me, I am Marley. I am not easily pierced by an object." Selina's heart skipped a bit as she remembered those words, and she began to remove herself from his grip. " Are you alright?" The man asked as he noticed her actions."Yes, I'm.... I'm fine." She stuttered and heaved a sigh, "Oh I'm so sorry for bumping into you, it's a mistake." she exclai
Xavier rushed to the door, and poke his eyes into the peephole. Standing in the doorway was his girlfriend, Talia. He had invited her over to the house, to come and see his new apartment. With a sigh of relief, he pushed the door open and in excitement, she wrapped her hands around him. "Woah! I got you?" she said, her voice lace with happiness. Xavier breathed a sigh of relief, and wiped off the sweat from his forehead, and hugged her back."Talia! Thank goodness it's you. Come in, quick." He opened the door widely and she disengaged from the hug, and walked into the house. She glanced around the house, and suddenly, her eyes landed on Selina, who's spying at the door." Welcome to my new home. Do you like it?" Xavier asked as he walked fully into the room after shutting the door. Talia nodded, her eyes not leaving Selina. Selina on seeing who it is, came out from her hiding place with a smile on her face." Selina!"" Talia!"Xavier who's beginning of think of how he would explain e
Selina and Xavier quickly settled the bill at the restaurant and headed out into the street. As they walked, Selina couldn't shake the feeling that someone was watching them. She looked over her shoulder, but the streets were empty. Xavier noticed her unease and tried to reassure her, but it did little to calm her nerves. The air seemed thicker, the streetlights a little dimmer.They reached Xavier's apartment building, a tall, nondescript structure that seemed to blend into the cityscape. As they rode up the elevator, Selina could feel her heartbeat quickening. She knew she should probably turn back, but something inside her urged her to keep going. The elevator doors opened, and they stepped out into the hallway. Xavier fished out a key and unlocked his apartment door. "Welcome to my humble abode," he said, trying to lighten the mood. " Thanks!" She faked a smile, and he pushed the door open and ushered her in.As they entered the apartment, Selina took in the surroundings. It was
The man who's pursuing her, hesitated for a moment, then took a step back. "Fine," he growled. "But this isn't over. I'll be back." With that, he turned and leapt off the roof, disappearing into the street. The stranger turned to Selina, extending his hand to her, he said. "Are you okay?" She nodded, her eyes still wide with shock. "I'm fine. Thank you," she managed to say. "My name's Selina. What's yours?" "I'm Xavier. It's a pleasure to meet you, Selina. But I think we need to get you somewhere safe." Selina nodded, still trembling. She didn't know who Xavier was or why he'd stepped in to help her, but she was grateful he was there.Xavier guided her down the fire escape and back into the safety of the street below. He hailed a cab, and they climbed in, relieved to be away from the danger.As they drove through the city, Sarah noticed a sign post, and what was written baffled her, and she turned to the man beside her with her mouth a bit open." Where is this?" She asked, and
Slowly, Selina opened her eyes, her head pounding as she tried to glance around the room. The last thing she remembered was walking down a street, and then... darkness. Now, she found herself in a dimly lit room, tied to a chair, half naked. Her heart raced as she tried to make sense of her surroundings. She could hear the sound of cars passing by outside, but it was hard to tell where she was. Panic set in as she struggled against her restraints. She listened closely, but didn't hear any sounds of another person nearby. Carefully, she began to work her wrists against the ropes, feeling them loosen with each movement. She managed to slip one hand free, then the other. Quietly, she rose to her feet, but was unable to stand properly. Selina began to wonder what might have happened to her, but had no clue. She looked at herself closely, and realized that her dress was a bit torn. Without pondering much on it, she decided to leave quickly, as she thought that it's not safe to be there. S
Selina's mind was racing, her heart pounding. She didn't know what to do. She was terrified, but she had to stay calm. She couldn't let this man know how scared she was. She slowly raised her hands, trying to appear calm and collected. "What do you want?" She asked, her voice trembling despite her best efforts. "I just want your money." The man replied, taking a step towards her. Selina's eyes darted around the room, searching for a way out. But the man was blocking the only exit. She was trapped. Suddenly, the man lunged at her, grabbing her by the arm. She cried out in pain, trying to break free. But he was too strong, his grip like iron. "Don't struggle, or I'll hurt you." He growled, his breath hot on her face. She froze, trying to calm her breathing. "Please, just take what you want and leave." She begged, her voice shaking. "Shut up!" He hissed, tightening his grip. "I'm in charge here." She whimpered, but did as he said."Now, I'm going to let you go, and you're going to g
Selina took out her phone and started to dial her mother's number again, but it went straight to voicemail. She felt a knot in her stomach and her heart started to race. "I'm scared." She said, and put her lips in her mouth. Nelson reached over and put his hand on hers. "Don't be. I'm sure everything is fine. We're going to get to the bottom of this." He said, giving her a reassuring smile. Selina nodded, trying to believe him. They drove for a while, the silence filled with worry and unease. After what seemed like an eternity, they reached the neighborhood where her mother lived. They pulled up to the house and Selina got out of the car, her heart pounding in her chest.She walked up to the front door, and begin to knock repeatedly. The gateman, Mr ..........., A man she in his early fifties stepped, but frowned when he saw her." Good day Miss." He put his left hand in his pocket and lean on the wall." Good day, ....... I'm here to see my mother, can I come in?" " I'm sorry Miss,
