📿 Roxanne 📿
I woke up seeing myself tied up. I tried loosen the chain on body but couldn’t.
Julia? How can she do this to me? I trusted her.
Why did she bring me here so? This place looks so unkept.
” You are awake ” a voice said from behind.
No doubt it’s Julia’s
” What’s happening Julia, why did you bring me here and tie me up ?” I asked faintly.
My body is sure bruised. I feel so tired.
” Hey girlfriend ”
” I beg of you Julia please let me go, if I have done something wrong to you. Forgive me please ” I pleaded with tears threatening to fall .
” I wish I could but I can’t Roxanne, I am just doing my job and you are a victim ”
” A victim? ”
” Yes, I was sent to kill you ” she said as my jaw dropped. What? Sent to kill me? Who did I offend? Who wants me dead?
” And y..you are not going to do that are you?”
” I’m sorry Roxanne, the payment I was given is worth some thousands. Many times bigger than my salary for a year ” she said.
Does that mean she’s going to kill me because of the money?
” W..who sent you? ”
” That’s not important Roxanne ”
She brought out a gun coming closer to me.
I became frightened, I am going to die this way without accomplishing Cory and Zoey’s dream?
I can’t just believe Julia can kill me, I was living with my enemy as a friend all this while?
” P..please don’t kill me, I promise I will pay you 2times your money just please don’t kill me ” I pleaded while she began laughing
” Pay me you say? With which money? You must be kidding me Roxanne ” she chuckled
” Can you afford a five hundred thousand?”
I shook my head at her question. I can’t have that amount of money even in two years .
” I.. I will pay you definitely please Julia, I know you can’t kill me ”
” Suit yourself Roxanne, I will be back by evening ”
She said leaving the room making sure the door was locked.
I just couldn’t stop thinking about who wants me dead.
What did I do to him/her?
Why did they want me dead?
My mind drifted to Cory and Zoey. How are they doing? They will be worried about my where about.
How long have I been here?
🌺 Liam’s POV 🌺
” What did you mean? She hasn’t been home since yesterday?” I asked Cory who looks so worried while Zoey held him tight crying her eyes out.
She didn’t show up in the office and I decided to branch and know why.
” No Liam, she hasn’t. She sometimes comes back from the office late so we thought she will come back at night but she didn’t. Her number isn’t connecting” he said ruffling his hair.
Where could she be? Oh Julia! Didn’t she drop her off?
” You should calm down okay? I will find out where she is. I’m sure she’s safe, don’t panic ” I said convincingly
” I hope so, I don’t want to loose her ”
” You won’t Cory, be strong and take care of Zoey and little Amigo stop crying okay? Your sister is fine ”
I said and she nodded. It’s not time for troubles.
I left into my car immediately and headed to Julia’s house. It’s not that far from here. But she was at the office today.
This little time I have spent with Roxanne was simply the best. She’s a friend everyone will wish to have. She’s cool and perfect!
A very good adviser too
Gosh! She isn’t home! Does it mean she has a hand in Roxanne’s sudden disappearance? What do I do?
I need to do something.
I hope Roxy is safe.
🏓 Rex 🏓
” Chill man she’s fine, when did you become this caring?” Adam said laughing. This isn’t funny at all but he makes joke out of everything.
” She wasn’t at the office today and she didn’t call to tell me she won’t come. Roxanne is the type that will inform someone ahead but she didn’t, can’t you see something is wrong?” I said worriedly.
I seriously haven’t felt this way in a long time now. I feel she’s not safe, I don’t know
” Something might come up and she will forget ”
” I don’t buy that ” I replied shaking my head
Something seems off,my heart is beating very fast .
” Okay, let’s go check up on her if that will ease your mind ”
” Yeah that’s a perfect idea ”
” Man you are whipped, you are in love ” he said laughing while I glared at him.
We waited for the door to get opened and in a short while, her brother who almost made me ran mad due to jealousy opened the door.
He looks so pale and dull with eye bags under his eye. Has he been crying? It’s just now I can clearly see his resemblance with Roxanne, then, I was blinded by uneven anger .
” Cory right?” Adam asked while he nodded. He knows him ?
” Come in ” he said faintly paving a way for us.
Their apartment isn’t that bad!
” Mr Kings ” Liam called, what’s he doing here? He was seated with a younger Roxanne, she looks so much like her just that she’s younger. Maybe her sister.
” Good evening ”
” Yeah evening ” I greeted back while sitting beside Adam. I don’t want to think he have anything with Roxanne, maybe just friends. I guess
My eyes ran around looking for her but she was nowhere.. where’s she?
” We actually came to ask after Roxanne, where’s she?” I asked .
Everywhere became silent, no one answered expect the girl who was sniffing.
This isn’t going to end well, what’s happening? Where’s she?
” Where’s she? Why isn’t anyone talking?” I asked anxiously.
” She’s fine right?” I asked again. Nothing should happen to her, not now that I can’t fight my feelings for her. Not now that I’m ready to ask for her forgiveness and put everything that happened before behind us.
” She’s been kidnapped” Liam said.
The word rang loudly in my ear. Kidnapped? How? By who? Why?
I fell on the floor immediately, that can’t be.
” What did you mean she’s been kidnapped? How?” I questioned no one in particular
” We don’t know either ” Cory replied.
My Roxanne? Kidnapped?
My world is shattering. Roxanne doesn’t have a problem with anyone so why?
I knew something was wrong, I could feel it. What do I do? I need to find my Foxy. I need to tell her how much I miss us, I need to tell her I love her. I need to tell her I’m sorry.
” I think we should inform the cops ” Adam suggested.
Will they be of help? How’s she doing? Is she fine? Has she eaten? Did they touch her? God!
If I get to know who’s behind her kidnap, I will kill him with my bare hands. I don’t mind going to jail for murder.
” I don’t think that’s the best idea for now but, there is a bracelet I gifted her ” our eyes snapped at Liam the moment he said that..
” It has a tracking system on it, we can track her location ” ……..
📿 Roxanne 📿
My body hurts so much. No one to help!
Julia is going to kill me, I wish I had knew, I wouldn’t have followed her but I thought she was my friend.
She pointed the gun at me without saying anything. Tears welled up my eyes. I’m never going to see my siblings again. Who will take care of them when I get killed here?
” Is there anything you wish to say ?” She asked. She isn’t remorseful. Her face was expressionless.
Has she been killing people like this?
” Can I at least speak with my siblings please, this is my last wish ”
” Your wish cannot be granted Roxanne” she replied. I wish I was let loosed,I could have escaped through the opened window. I guess she didn’t notice it…
” Julia please”
” I’m sorry Roxanne, if you don’t have anything else to say then goodbye ”
She pulled the trigger and I shot my eyes closed. God please take care of Cory and Zoey.
She released the bullet, I heard a gun shot but….. I didn’t die, the bullet wasn’t shot at me.
My eyes snapped opened and the sight I was seeing was unbelievable.
How did he come here? He took the bullet meant for me and now lying in the pool of his blood

📿 Roxanne 📿
” Mr Kings? What the hell?” Julia said still pointing the gun at us. Rex took the bullet for me? How did he find out I was kidnapped?
” Rex ” I called faintly. I couldn’t do anything to help stop his bleeding stomach because I was tied up.
He was bleeding so much.
” Ro…..Roxanne are you okay?” He asked stuttering, his hand on his stomach full of blood .
” I… I am fine Rex, but you aren’t, the blood is becoming much. You shouldn’t have taken the bullet meant for me ” I replied pathetically. ..
He risked his life for me and the worst part is that he was shot in the stomach.
What do I do?
” I’m glad you are fine, you shouldn’t worry about me ” he smiled painfully. .. he’s in pain because of me….
” Well, well, since you decided to show up here Mr Kings. Both of you won’t survive it, I can’t risk being caught ” Julia said emotionless.
” P.. please Julia, save Rex and kill me I beg you. He’s loosing so much blood ” I pleaded
” I will kill you both ” she said and pulled the trigger again. Rex crawled closer to me and held my legs ..
” Don’t shoot or you are dead, freeze young lady ”
My head snapped at the door to see some cops, Liam, Adam and Cory coming in with a gun pointed at Julia…
She looks frightened with her jaw dropping in fear
” Drop your weapon ”
She gently placed it on the floor and Liam quickly picked it up…
How did they know I was here?
” You are under arrest for attempt murder and kidnap”
They chained her hands dragging her away….
” Are you okay Roxanne?” Liam asked
” No! R.. Rex he’s bleeding ” I cried.
He kept wincing in pain with his hands very tight on my leg
” Let’s take him to the hospital, Cory get Roxanne loosed ” Adam said as they both pick Rex from the floor..
” I… I love you Roxanne ” that was his last word before he was rushed out… I’m so confused and tired to think of anything right now.
I wish Rex will be fine, nothing should happen to him please…
” Are you okay sis?”Cory asked helping me up.
I feel so weak, I couldn’t move any part of my body. My body was terribly shaking…
” Roxanne” Cory called but I couldn’t answer, my face became blurry and I blacked out ..
🌺 Adam’s POV 🌺
” How are they doctor?” I asked curiously. It’s been almost an hour since Rex and Roxanne was brought in here and we didn’t hear from any of the doctors, even the nurses ignored us .
“Calm down Mr Adam, Miss Roxanne is fine now but she’s fast asleep and Mr Kings ”
” He’s lost so much blood and the bullet penetrated into his system which might cause some damages . He wasn’t brought on time but we were able to get the bullet out if him ” he said and I fell on the floor..
I told him not to go in but he insisted.
” What can be done doctor, there’s a solution right? ” Liam chipped in
” Of course but it will cost a lot of money but first, he needs a blood transfusion immediately ” he informed..
” Okay, you can take mine ” I volunteered. I can’t let anything happen to him, what do I tell his parents?
” Alright, we need to examine your blood to see if it matches with his ”
” Follow me please ” he said
” You both can go check up on Roxanne, I will be back shortly ” I said to Liam and Cory
” no! We will go with you to get examine too, any blood that matches will be taken ” Liam said while Cory nodded. In all, he needs to go home, his little sister is left all alone in the house.
” That’s a good idea, let’s go then” the doctor said
” Mr Adam and Mr Liam your blood didn’t match with his except Mr Cory, they are both A+”
I glanced at Cory who stood motionless without mentioning a word.
” Can you?” Liam asked
” Y ..yeah, I mean the guy in question saved my sister’s life so why won’t I ?”
I sighed in relief on hearing that. I just can’t imagine loosing my best friend this way. I will never be happy with myself for not being able to do anything to save him ..
” Thank you Cory ”
” It’s nothing, you guys can go to Roxy and check if she’s fine ” …
” Yeah we will do just that ”
📿 Roxanne 📿
I looked around my environment ti discover I was lying on the hospital bed with some strings connected to my body…
” Roxanne, you are awake ” I turned to see Liam and Adam by my side.
” how are you feeling now?” Adam asked
” I.. I am fine but my head hurts a little”
” Don’t worry, you will be fine ” Liam said…
My! How about Rex?
” And Rex? Where’s he? Is he fine? I believe he survived it right? ” I asked glancing at them while they exchanged a few glances communicating through their eyes ..
” Y..yes, he’s fine but he’s asleep now ” Adam assured but I wasn’t convinced enough.
” Are you sure?”
” Yes Roxanne, you shouldn’t bother yourself about him for now okay? He’s fine ” Liam added while I nodded.
” A..and Cory? Where’s he? Is Zoey fine?”
” Calm down beautiful, they are all fine. All you need now is rest, stress is out of it ”
” Okay, can I see Rex? ”
” Of course not, there is a drip on you remember?” Adam said and I sighed . I just want to be sure he’s fine, I want to just hug him for saving me. Does it mean that if he didn’t take the bullet, I do be dead?
I still can’t believe he almost died for me. My thought was that he hates me. But now, I think I’m wrong.
He really said he love me, is that true?
The door opened revealing Cory looking so weak and pale but he covered it with a smile immediately he saw me.
Liam rushed to him as he sat him beside me. What’s wrong with him?
” Sis, how are you feeling now?” He asked trying to sound fine but I know he’s not
” Cory what’s wrong? Are you okay? ” I asked touching him with my free hand .
” I’m fine sis or don’t I look fine? I’m only happy you are okay now”
” Adam? Liam? Tell me what’s wrong?” I asked but they all kept mute .
My eyes caught a glimpse of Cory’s arm, it was covered with some wools .
My eyes ran into the three of them demanding exactly what happened…
” Fine, Rex needed some blood and he volunteered to help” Adam said shrugging with everyone’s gaze not meeting mine.
My heart sank, that means he isn’t fine. He’s not okay.
” Take me to him please ”
” Calm down Roxanne, he will be fine if he gets the blood into him”
” No Liam, I… I … just want to see him please ”
” It’s okay Roxanne, you will see him when he wakes up ” Adam said giving me a hug as a tear slip down my cheeks …
The whole scenario is making me go insane. He needs to wake up, nothing must happen to him for me ….
” Thank you all for saving me ” I muttered…
” It’s okay, I will just get to your apartment to bring Zoey and get some food for you and Cory ” Liam said while I nodded.. aren’t I blessed to have met this set of people?
I can’t wait to see Rex, at this moment, I’m not angry with him anymore.

📿 Roxanne 📿
It’s been two days since Rex has been lying unconscious. He neither wake up nor move any part of his body and the doctor said he will be fine.
How can he be fine in this condition? I blame myself for all this. He’s struggling to survive all because of me.
” Please wake up Rex, I want to hear you yell at me. Just please wake up for me ” I cried laying on his chest.
His mother’s tears when she got to know won’t stop to make me feel guilty.
” I know you can hear me Rex, remember you said you love me and now you don’t want to wake up to prove that to me ”
” I’m sorry you are going through this because of me, I’m really sorry. Don’t leave me ”
” Roxanne,here you go again ” Adam said sitting beside me while I sniffed
” You have been crying for two days now and you haven’t eaten anything, did you think it’s the best thing to do ? ” He said sighing loudly
” I’m sure he will be fine okay?” He assured me
” Thank you Adam ”
” It’s nothing, here, I brought you something to eat ”
” I.. I’m not hungry ”
” You can’t tell us that sis, you either eat or I feed you ” Zoey said coming inside the ward with Cory
” What are you both doing here? You ought to be in school right?”
” You see sis, today is Saturday ” she replied. How did you expect me to remember that when I have more pressing issues at hand .
” Now eat, he will be fine I promise please. If you don’t eat and you die, what becomes of us?” She asked pouting.
But Truth he told, I don’t feel hungry. How can I be hungry when someone is dieing in my name?
” Please sis” Cory added . I glanced at the three of them. No way out, I just have to eat a little quantity.
” How about Liam? ”
” He went somewhere but will be back soon ” Adam answered
A lot has happened within this few days. With Rex still unconscious wouldn’t give me enough time to think about it. All I want is just to see Rex being okay.
I don’t even know what is happening about Julia, she’s still in the costody of the cops I guess.
The very reason I was afraid of keeping female friends, it happened that the only one I made friends with almost killed me.
Up till now, I haven’t had the chance to ask them how they found where I was but I’m grateful. What could I have done without this very crew ?
🌺 Unknown 🌻
Julia was so foolish to have been caught and she will have to bear the consequences all by herself without involving me unless she wants her loved ones dead .
The fact that my first plan doesn’t work won’t make me give up on getting Roxanne killed. Like I said, I won’t have internal peace when I know she’s still alive.
She might find out the truth and everything I laboured for will be in vain. I have to kill her before anything happens.
I will use her weakness against her that she will have no option than to bring herself to me.
Death is what she deserves. If I can kill her parents then she doesn’t merit anything. And yes! The people she thought are her parents aren’t her parents.
She began living with them after I killed her parents and it was difficult finding her after then. Now that I find her, maybe it’s time to say Hi to her parents especially her father my brother.
Roxanne is a threat to me, she kept escaping my wrath each time I tried but this time around. I will make sure I nail it .
Before I can enjoy this beautiful world, Roxanne won’t live.
If not as that idiot saved her, she’d be dead by now .
When I get to her this time around, she won’t survive it. There will be no lover or friends to save her.
What she loves most is what I shall take to get her…….
🏓 Rex 🏓
” I know you can hear me Rex, I miss our fights. I miss those times you yell at me just to get at me and I miss those wonderful days we spent together, wake up please. You can’t lay there forever. Just wake up for your Foxy please ”
That familiar voice belongs to only one person. Roxanne! That was her, I guess she’s crying because I heard her sniff.
I wish I could just stand up and give her a warm hug.
” You know what Rex, I love you now and forever ” she added chuckling to herself while her tears fell on my hand she was holding.
My heart felt so good, did she mean what she said? God! I wish to see her right now…
It was like my body was stiff, I couldn’t move any part of my body.
I tried opening my eyes on a failed attempt.
Giving it one more try, my eyes slowly opened.
Her head was placed on my hand, I think she’s feeling sleepy.
” R.. Roxy ” I managed to call with my hand clutched to my stomach. It hurts so badly .
” R… Roxanne ” I called again and her head snapped up immediatetly. I wanted to smile but couldn’t, the pain in my stomach will only increase.
” Oh my goodness Rex you are awake ” she shouted in excitement.
She jumped up and landed on top of me. …. Don’t tell me she’s still clumsy. …
” Ouch ” I winced.
” I. ..I am so sorry Rex, I didn’t mean to worsen the pain ” she said fearfully while I forced a smile.
I can’t deny it that I love this girl.
” How are you feeling? Does it still hurt much? I thought I was going to loose you, I’m sorry you have to go through this for me, I don’t know I’m….. ” I placed my index finger on her lips to stop her from talking.
She’s talking too much.
” Will you help me up and stop talking?” I said playfully while she nodded …
” My stomach, ouch ” I winced sitting on the bed.
” Sorry Rex, sorry ” she said glancing at me fully confused on what to do ….
” I’m happy you are awake now, I almost went insane ” she said
” Did you mean what you said while I was unconscious?” I blurted while she furrowed her brows
” What?” She asked.
” That you love me now and forever ” I said and her face reddened in embarrassment. She threw her face away smiling. She meant it, that’s it . Oh my goodness!
I began laughing forgetting my stomach is still hurting….
The thought of knowing someone is after Roxanne’s life niggled at me. Who wants her dead? Why?
What if I hadn’t saved her, she’d be killed? I believe Julia was sent, she doesn’t have any reason to want Roxanne dead.
The first thing I will do when I get out of here is to find who’s after her life. I will make sure the person suffers the same pain.
” Roxanne ” I called taking her hands into mine.
” I know I have messed up a big time and I feel guilty for everything I have done in the past ”
” Right now, I don’t want to hear anything that happened between you and Marcus. I believe it was my wrong assumptions. Please forgive me and let’s come back together again, I’m deeply sorry ”
” I have always loved you and I still do Foxy ” …..
