I woke up after the doctor [email protected]£d me and this time around, I felt better.
A whole lot better. My head was calm…and the pains had reduced.
But the fact that Maxine was missing still tormented me to the bones.
I woke up to find just Alexa in the room with me.
“Noah”, she beamed and t©uçhed the be-d.
“You…you’re awake. How’re you feeling now?”
“Where’s mum?” I asked after a little silence.
“She’s with the doctor while your dad has been with the police. Come on” she said and helped me sit up.
She took a flask on the floor and opened it, revea-ling some vegetables.
“The doctor said you should eat this” she said as she took a spoon and started feeding me
She took a spoonful of the vegetables and brou-ght it close to my mouth and I slowly collected it.
“What’s the news on Maxine?” I asked hopefully and noticed her countenance changed.
“The um…the police are still working on it and hopefully, she’ll be found soon” she replied and I felt a twinge of pain in my che-st.
God! Damn it. How do I find her? I nee-ded to get out of this hospital.
But with the look of things, I’m sure mum must’ve planted guards outside the door to prevent me from leaving.
“Don’t rack your head over it, Noah. It’s not good for your health.
Maxine will be fine and brou-ght home” she said but all I did was stare restlessly. I couldn’t even eat the vegetables again.
Gosh! I can’t believe he’s so worried over that low life. Like….what’s so special about her anyway to the point he proposed to her and even went for bridal shopping?
I’ve always tried all I could to be close to him. I almost succeeded. But what happened, huh?
I lost him – lost him within the twi-nkle of an eye.
I tried feeding him with the vegetables again, but he rejected.
And now, he wouldn’t eat anymore. I just hope that witch is never rescued.
I wish she gets lost forever.
I covered the flask and kept it back on the floor.
“Noah” I called as I stood up and sat next to him on the be-d.
“She’ll be fine, okay? Don’t worry about it, plea-se” I as-sured him but he didn’t say a word and slowly, I placed my head on his shoulder.
Thank goodness he didn’t resist and at that moment, it made me realize what Maxine was trying to take away from me.
I felt hungry and weak…debilitated.
How do I escape from here? How can I be sure Noah’s safe?
My heart kept beating ra-pidly. It was alre-ady dark.
Why do I have to be so unfortunate in life?
My parents were taken from me at a tender age, I grew up as a slave in my own parents wealth; and just when I was about finding happiness – this happens.
Tears built up in my eyes as I thought of it. Was I naturally born with badluck?
I was still crying when the door opened and I turned to see it was ru-by.
I guess I should’ve expected this.
I sniffed and looked up at her as she closed the door silently and [email protected]£ to me.
Definitely, she’s here to have her revenge. Perfect timing.
“Are you here to get back at me – daddy’s girl?” I asked as she squatted in front of me.
She didn’t say a word and surprisingly, she brou-ght out a knife from her dress.
I flin-ched and tried moving back, but couldn’t.
What are her intentions?
“Sssh” she signalled me not to make a sound and slowly, she brou-ght the knife to the ropes that bounded me and cut them lose.
“You nee-d to leave, Maxine. Else, you might die in here.
“Right now, the boys are having a meeting and there’d be less guards to avoid.
Go throu-gh the window, avoid light and make use of the fence and you’ll be out of the fence. Run as fast as you can and make sure you don’t get caught. Do it quic-kly, you don’t have much time” she spoke in a husky whisper and my eyes dimmed.
(Semi – final)

I looked at her in ultimate surprise.
Is she being serious??? I should run away?? Why would she want to help me?
“Come on Maxine, you don’t have much time. Don’t let my efforts go to waste, plea-se” she begged and helped me stand, leading me to the window.
“Here. Jump out and like I said, avoid the lights, walk mostly in the dark and you’ll be successful. plea-se” she whispered and I looked at her one more time.
“Why’re you doing this?” I asked and she stared back at me.
“Because I feel it’s the right thing” she simply said and urged me to climb the window and I did.
“Thank you”, I muttered.
She nodded and I finally left.
I jumped out the window and stood un-der the roof, staying in the dark.
I looked around carefully and only sp©tted one boy moving around – far away. He had a gun with him.
I waited for him to go far away and then I ran to the fence nearby.
I crawled on it and getting to the t©p, I suddenly heard someone scream:
“St©p right there!!!”
I looked and discovered it was one of the armed guards.
Oh my God!
He charged towards me but luckily, I’d jumped down the fence alre-ady and found myself amidst bushes.
Where the hell am I??
I started running as fast as my legs could carry me, struggling with the dry rustling leaves.
I made my way throu-gh the bushes and finally bur-sted out to the roadside.
Oh! Thank goodness! I made it!!
I just hope the boys aren’t close by cause I don’t even know where am.
I continued running and after a while, [email protected]£ across a car and without even a second thought, I ran to the middle of the road, jumping and waving my hands in the air.
I didn’t even care if I could get possibly get knocked down or something. All I could think about was getting help
I jumped hopefully and the driver screeched to a halt immediately with the front door opening.
It was a young woman.
“Hey! What’s wrong with you? Why’re you…” I didn’t let her finish up before I’d ran to her.
“plea-se, I’m begging you. Take me out of here. They’re after me. plea-se” I gibbered and saw surprise on her face.
“Hold on…aren’t you…Maxine? The lady that’s missing?” She asked.
“Yes, yes. It’s me. plea-se, it’s me” I nodded repeatedly.
“Oh my! Come in immediately” she urged and opened the door for me and I jumped in.
She got into the driver’s seat and took off immediately.
“What the hell happened to you? Your pictures are all over the place and everyone has been on the look out for you” she asked as she drove on the speed I wanted.
“I was kidnapped but just managed to escape. plea-se, do you have any news on Noah Sigmund?” I asked in fear.
“Yes, dear. He was sh0t and is currently in a hospital”
Oh my God!! Thank goodness he was saved.
“plea-se, how’s his condition? Is it critical?” I asked restlessly.
“I have no idea. Id only seen it news and have no idea if he’s fine now or not” she replied, ma-king me panic the more.
“plea-se ma’am. Take me to him. Take me to the hospital” I pleaded.
“Huh? You nee-d to go to the station so….”
“plea-se, I’ll still be safe there. I just nee-d to see him. plea-se, ma’am”.
She looked at me and seeing how desperate I was, she agreed.
“Damn it!!” I heard Oscar growl from outside the room and I flin-ched.
He sounded really mad.
Tammy was also in the room with me and looked scared.
“How thefu-ck did she escape? Did some ghosts just show up in the room and set her free or what?” He asked angrily.
“We don’t know boss. When we were done from the meeting, we’d gone back to the room to check on her but she was nowhere to be found. The ropes were just on the floor and the windows open. The boys are still searching for her” I heard another say and I didn’t hear anything from Oscar again.
The next thing was the door opening and he [email protected]£ in
Gosh! He looked so angry.
“What happened to her?” He asked, looking at me.
I stared at him surprised and he gr!pp£dmy hand r0ûghly.
“Answer me, ru-by!!” He yelled into my face
“Let me go, Oscar! I didn’t do anything” I shouted back in fear rather and he looked into my face.
“You’ve just messed up the whole thing, ru-by. Everyfu-cking thing!!” He snarled and I shook a little.
He let go of my hand, pushing me r0ûghly and left the room.
“ru-by, did you do it?” Tammy asked in fear but I couldn’t say a word as I busted into tears.
The car drove into the hospital building and without hesitation, I jumped out of the car and ran into the reception. I just nee-ded to see Noah.
“I’m looking for Noah Sigmund, plea-se” I told the first nurse I met and they all looked surprised.
They exchanged glances at each other.
“Um…come with me” she replied and started leading me to the room.
The woman that’d helped me was alre-ady in and followed us behind.
I felt like flying as I walked with the nurse because I just couldn’t wait to see Noah.
She increa-sed her pace and after many turns and climbing the stairs, she st©pped in front of a room.
“That’s his room” she pointed out and immediately, I pushed the door open.
Noah, the name danced in my heart as I caught a sight of him on the be-d. But he was sitting with Alexa.
By: Faith Lucky.
I was in the room with mum, dad, Alexa and Charlene when the door suddenly went open and I lifted my eyes to see someone familiar.
Not just anyone – but the same lady I’ve been looking for.
Confusion clouded me as I really couldn’t comprehend it.
What’s going on? Isn’t she the sqme….
Could it be her ghost?
No; never. She can never be dead.
“Maxine?” Mum helped me voice out her name.
I stood,smiling at the door as he stared at me with so much surprise and disbelief like he’d seen a ghost.
“Maxine?” His mum called and immediately, Noah stood up.
“Maxine?” He called this time around and I smiled and jumped into his hands, forgetting the fact he looked injured.
“Noah” I whimpered as he carried me up and held me ti-ght to himself.
It was like something I couldn’t explain. A feeling I’d never experienced.
That hvg felt so special to me.
“You [email protected]£ back. You’re back” he hushed.
We pu-ll-ed from the hvg and he k!$$£d me immediately.
“Maxine” his mum called and I turned to look at her.
“What happened to you? We thought you were abducted? Did they just..”
“No; I escaped. Oscar was behind it. He abducted me and wanted me to withdraw the case I have against his parents. But just few minutes ago, ru-by helped me escape” I explained.
“ru-by?” Charlene asked.
“Yes. I…I guess she doesn’t support her brother and wanted to do the right thing. She’s the reason I’m here”
“Hold on; would you be able to locate the place? It’s possible they’re still there, right?” His dad asked.
“I…I don’t know. But I think I should be able to locate it” I said nervously.
“Then come on, let’s get going. I’ll alert the police at once”.
“No, no. She’s going nowhere. She just [email protected]£ back” Noah objected.
“Son come on, we’re talking about criminals here! We nee-d to get them” his dad tried to convince him.
“Then, if she’s going, I’m going with her. That’s the only option. Else, we stay here together” he said and every other attempt to dissuade him proved negative as he wouldn’t listen.
And having no other option, they had take him along.
I [email protected]£ out of the bathroom, we-t as water dr!pp£dfrom my hair to my b©dy.
I had just a towel tied round me and met Noah lying on the be-d, busy with his phone.
But the moment I entered, he took his eyes from the phone and smiled at me.
“Hey” he cooed and I just smiled and walked to the wardrobe.
“Come over, bae. I think I nee-d some chills” he beckoned on me and I chuckled.
I closed the wardrobe and went to the be-d to join him and he made me lie very close to him.
“How’re you feeling now?” I asked, tou-ching his arm.
“Well…I think I’m great – especially now you’re close to me” he replied and I blu-shed in a smile.
He dropped his phone and wra-pped his hand around me as we stared blankly at the ceiling.
“Are you re-ady for tomorrow?” He broke the short silence and my heart skipped a bit at the mention of that.
“Well….I guess so” I shrugged and he smiled
Tomorrow was actually the final day for the Star Dance Competition.
“You know you’re alre-ady my star, right?” He asked and I blu-shed again.
For a while, we didn’t say a word.
“Why do you think Rex left?” I asked.
Well, I’ve been really curious about it.
“I…have no idea” he shrugged.
“But whatever it is, I think it’s for the best. At least, I can be free from him now”.
He’d showed up that morning, rendered some apologizes – saying he’d decided to enjoy his life and st©p envying other people’s happiness.
Then, he left the country afterwards.
“But do you think he was being sincere with his apologies?” I asked again.
“Seriously Maxine, I don’t know. But I just hope he is” Noah replied simply and I took in a de-ep breath.
Well, he’d sounded sorry and sincere. I don’t think he was faking it. .
“Maxine” he called after a while.
“Are you really sure of forgiving ru-by and Tammy to the extent of re-leasing the house to them?”
“Well…of course” I shrugged.
“ru-by’s the reason I escaped and i think she’s really remorseful now. I think she’s changed. And you know Tammy….she’s more of a kid and tends to do what ru-by does. Besides, they’d really apologized. So, I think its okay”.
He didn’t say a word for a while and just sighed.
Well, I’ve made up my mind alre-ady. With Oscar and his parents in jail, I think everything’s settled.
“I think I’ll just get dressed. I’m beginning to feel cold” I said and tried standing up, but he pu-ll-ed down.
“Hey, don’t worry. I’ll warm you up” he cooed and reached for the ti-p of my towel.
Before I could finish up my statement, he crashed hisl-ips on mine and took off my towel.
“Noah!!!” I called and laughed as he tickled me
In less than a week, they got married and she didn’t just become his wife, she also [email protected]£ the World’s Star Dancer where her veil was taken off.
No matter how long it takes, a stammer would still pronounce his name
