What did you just say? I mean why would Andy want to get me killed? I asked , i was still confused …..
Chase sighed softly
This is the exact reason why I never wanted to tell you , I knew you would get all worked up ….
Just tell me, why did he try to kill me? I repeated in a huff
You need to calm down Candy , you are not fully recovered
Calm down! how can you tell me to calm down! i almost died, that bastard almost killed me . I said in between sobs
he sat down and made me lean on his chest
It is alright baby, It is going to be alright.he assured
But why did he try to kill me? Did I offend him in anyway? Why does he hate me to want to kill me? I asked rushingly
It is not about you , it is about us, Chase and I. Nick answered while moving closer to us
What do you mean by that? I asked , I looked at him and then at Chase
Can’t you see!he shot at you just to get to us, he knows how important you are to us . he tried explaining but I was still not getting it
Why will he want to do that? I continued and Chase sighed
Enough with the questions, I will explain everything to you later
but I just … I tried to say but he cut me off
Just listen to me please .he pleaded
Fine! I agreed and Nick smiled
he glanced at his wristwatch and sighed
I need to go now guys, Loretta must be waiting for me . he informed
Oh! Are you both going somewhere? I asked with a smile and he nodded
her cast bandage would be removed today so I need to take her over to the hospital. he explained
Too bad it is a different hospital! I remarked sadly and he chuckled
Don’t worry!i will let her know you are awake ….
he leaned over to peck me lightly before leaving …
So what of my parent, are they aware of what is going on? I asked while playing with Chase button
Of course!they were both here yesterday and I had to literally go down on my knees to beg your mom to stop crying.he said teasingly and I laughed out loud
Stop it Chase ! my mom is stronger than you think…
I guess you should ask her about it? he drawled
I felt my stomach rumbling in hunger and I sighed
Are you alright! What is with that strange noise? Chase asked with a grin
I bit my lips as my stomach rumbled again but this more louder..
What the fuck! Did that come from your stomach? he asked and bursted into laughter
Stop it, it is not funny! I retorted angrily but he continued laughing
I hate you Chase ,I really hate you. I glared at him and he stopped
Are you for real? he asked arching his eyebrow
No, I love you so much but you are so annoying! I remarked with a pout and he smiled
he stood up from the bed and adjusted his clothes
Are you going somewhere? I asked and he nodded
Why! Where! Am I boring you! I asked rushingly and he shook his head
I need to get you some food. he informed and I frowned
Can’t you just call for it …
I wish to baby, but i also need to freshen up a bit. he explained
Oh! I nodded in understanding
he leaned over to kiss me briefly and was about walking out of the ward when I called him
he turned to look at me
Please don’t be long. I pleaded and he nodded
I won’t . he promised and walked out of the ward……
I sighed deeply, I was already missing him…..
Opening my eyes, I looked around the room, it was so dusty and unkempt.
The doors and windows were all rickety and the room itself look haunted.
Where am I? I wondered
I tried to move my body but I couldn’t, I looked down to see i was tied to a chair ….
I shuddered a little bit …
Who brought me me here? Why am I tied? Where in…….: I stopped when the memory of what happened flashed on..
Oh my gawd! Who could have done this? Who the hell kidnapped me?… Dora!the man threatened to blow off her head , is she alright?i really hope and pray she is because if any harm befalls her, I will never forgive myself……
And see who is already awake . a voice said, I looked in the direction of the voice and my eyes widened in shock at who I saw
Andy! he was standing at the entrance of the room with his hands folded across his chest …
Bastard! I cursed and he laughed out loud
he moved closer and squatted beside me
I am sorry for tying you up but I had no other options. he said with a mocking grin
What do you want? I yelled
Calm down Neil, do you want to scream the old house down. he smirked
What do you want? I repeated and he grinned
I want all of your money . he answered and I scoffed
You are crazy Andy!
Really! I guess I should show you what it means to be crazy. he retorted and smacked me hard across my face
Bastard! Is that all what you can do . I yelled at him
I can see you are the tough one but I will break you down….
Let us see about that . I growled at him and he chuckled softly
You are handsome , Rich, Popular but I wonder why your wife still chose me over you . he started
I stared at him at the same time wondering what he was trying to say
You see Roxy always tell how much she loves me, how she can’t wait to be with me ,how you were just her money bag and …
Shut up! I barked at him
I drilled the bitch and killed her when i was done with her. he added
I bit my lips trying to control my anger..
You are nothing but a heartless bastard! I cursed and he shook his head
No, I am just trying to take back what is mine. You see Roxy promised to give me half of the property after Nick inherits it but everything changed when you found out he was not your son. he yelled and hit his fist on the ground
I swallowed hard trying to digest what I just heard
Everything changed . he continued, Nick pushed me away, I lost my job, even Roxy lost all hope in me , all this happened because of Chase ..
Chase! what has my son got to do with this, don’t dare bring my son into this. I warned
Can’t you see! he was the who turned Nick against me . he defended and I scoffed
You can call me whatever you like , I reall…he stopped when a hefty man wearing a black hoodie walked in….. wait a minute! the black hoodie, it is the same man who kidnapped me…
The man looked at me and gave me a slight bow
Bastard! I cursed silently
Bosco! Are the papers ready?Andy asked the man and he nodded
Good! Let me have it
The man brought out some pile of papers he was hiding underneath his clothes and handed it to Andy
I watched Andy go through it and smiled
What is with the paper? I wondered
he looked up at me and held the paper up for me to see
I stared at the paper and my eyes widened in shock , it was a “transfer of properties document”
Are you insane! What do you intend to do with this? I yelled at him
Simple!you are going to sign it , you are going to sign off all of your property in my friend’s name. he answered with a grin
And what makes you think I will do that? I retorted and smiled
You see Roxy told me a lot of things about you , and one of the thing she mentioned was how much you love your dumb wife .
Don’t ever call her dumb again. I warned and he laughed
I can see how much you love her , sign it or else she will join Roxy in hell . he threatened and I shuddered a little bit
Just one word from me , Bosco here will go over to the mansion and bring you her head . he said with an evil grin
Are you in or not? he probed on
Oh my gawd! What will I do ?I can’t let harm come to Dora
Are you in or…..
I am in. I agreed and he smiled
Untie him. he instructed the hefty guy who moved closer and started untying the ropes
While he pulled out a gun and pointed it to me ………….
After the hefty man loosened the rope, Andy placed the documents and a pen on my laps
Sign it . he barked while pointing the gun at me
I stretched my hands a little before picking up the pen
I stared at the paper and sighed
Sign it. Andy barked again and i immediately did
The hefty man immediately squealed in delight
We are rich Andy . he said to Andy who just smiled
What are we going to do to him? Are we going to kill him? he asked Andy
No! I am going to make it more fun, I will love to kill both father and son together
What do you mean by that ? I yelled , I tried to stand up but he immediately shot at my leg
Arrghh! I groaned and fell to the floor
Now see where your stubbornness has gotten you too! he remarked with a mocking smile
You bastard! I cursed while holding my bleeding leg
I can’t wait to see Chase reaction when he sees his father sprawling on the floor
And do you think he will so foolish to come here alone! I bit my lips
I know Chase he has a very fragile heart. he said with a smile
That doesn’t make him stupid , Chase is very smart and you know it
let’s see about that. he said with a grin
Bosco! he called the hefty man, treat up his wounds
And why will i do that? Bosco asked
Because I want him to be strong enough to watch how I will kill his only son.. oops! his only child………
Entering the sitting room, I instructed the maids to pack up lunch for Candy ..
I headed upstairs to my room and on entering, I met my mom sleeping peacefully on my bed …
I smiled, i guess her husband is not around..
I went into the bathroom to freshen up and returned to the room with my briefs on….
I went over to wardrobe and hurriedly dressed in a blue jeans and a black hoodie…
I picked up my car keys from the table and headed downstairs to the sitting room…
I am ready to leave . I announced and a maid immediately rushed to me
She handed me the lunch box with a slight bow
Thanks . I said in appreciation and walked out of the sitting room to the garage
I got into my car and drove off heading to the hospital…..
On getting to the hospital, I parked my car in the parking lot
I alighted from the car and walked straight to Candy’s Ward…
Entering the ward, I smiled when I saw her sleeping
I guessed she was so bored!
I moved closer and sat down on the chair beside the bed…
My phone suddenly rang. I checked the caller and froze
It was Andy!!
Why is he calling? I wondered
I received the call
Chase! his voice rang from the other end
Bastard! I cursed and he laughed
What do you want? Are you tired of hiding? I asked biting my lips
I am with your father . he informed and I froze
Dad! how! Why! I wondered, I was so confused
Are you there? he asked to be sure
What do you want? I asked coldly
Simple!I want you to come over to the address I will send to you if not I will detonate the bomb on your father’s body ….
Bomb! I repeated in shock
Yes. he answered
And how am I sure you are with my father? I asked and he laughed
I will send you the proof with the message and lest I forget! Don’t think of informing a soul ….
You have only 20 mims to get here if not you will meet the remains of your father . he threatened and ended the call…..
Damn! this is bullshit!
My phone suddenly buzzed indicating a text message, I clicked on it and I clutched my fist in anger
“It was a picture message of my dad tied to a chair, he looked unconscious”
I read the message underneath it and stood up in a huff
It is time to end all this ……..::
