Episode 22.

HELENA.

I got tired of trying to use the scissors to unlock the key to Marshall’s secret room.

Another romantic, action, thriller or family stories @:- Pizarena.com

I was so vexed that I threw the scissors away and slumped weakly to the ground. The torch light seems to understand my predicament because it stuttered and started to shine in a diminishing state

What sort of door lock is this? How will I be able to open it? I know for sure Marshall carries the pair of keys that opens this very room about.

This room has suddenly turned into a Pandora box. I must open it, I’m sure there’s something in here that will be enough proof to bring this man to book.

I forced myself to my feet, took my torch light and went inside the kitchen to look for something that’ll help me.

I turned the kitchen upside down and found nothing helpful, I checked the store rooms and got tired when I couldn’t get anything.

I went back to my room and slumped to bed, I left everything on hold for another day as sleep overwhelmed me.

RACHEL.
*Next morning*
Coffee.
Yes, coffee….a very nice and sweet coffee.

“Wake up!”

I opened one eye first and peered at the person disturbing my sweet dreams, I was already on my mansion having a taste of good coffee.

Why can’t that person let me finish the coffee at least before becoming an enemy of progress!

“The boys called, they are still stuck across the river” Marshall said rubbing restlessly at his face.

Oh yes! The boys!! What was I thinking and dreaming about while my mission is still incomplete.

Daydreamer!

I yawned heavily and stood up from the bed “gosh! I forgot to send them a boat last night! How stupid I am!!”

I told one of the boys last night that I will send a boat to them which is supposed to be there this morning and I stupidly fell asleep forgetting what I was supposed to do.

“I will find a boat and go meet them myself” Marshall said going into the bathroom.

“Can I come with you?” I asked following him.

“To the bathroom or to the river side?” He asked making me scoff.

“Anywhere you lead me, I just wanna be anywhere you are” I shut the bathroom door and joined him on the shower.

“Where did you get this dangerous body from?” He flirted summing me up with his eyes.

Funny, I’m irresistible even at the face of trouble, he’s not even good at that, Brandon is a heart melter when it comes to flirting.

Brandon!
Brandon!!
Brandon!!!
What’s wrong with you Rachel? The thought of him still triggers me even after many years of living apart from him.

I have to figure out what to do with the problem at hand, not stoop so low as to allow him pry into my mind.

“My mother, I know little about her before she left but I know she’s an epitome of beauty and she has the sยฃxiest body ever” I said washing him.

“Oh yeah” he growled when I went down on my knees and took him into my mouth, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to tease him a little before we leave.

FRANK.

I wasn’t able to sleep last night at all, I felt weak and my whole body aches from lack of sleep.

I was sitted on the same spot and I regularly added firewood to the fire so it wouldn’t die, when my eyes threatened to close, I force it open and stayed at alert.

Well, Brianna slept peacefully. I can’t blame her because I know she is a girl and what she went through in the river is enough to make her too weak to fight sleep.

Eche started snoring from the moment he lay down on the palm fronds, his father, as I have come to find out was restless, he dozed off to sleep and snaps out of it a few times.

We talked last night and I found out he was involved in an accident which he said is complicated and that led to him wandering in the forest.

He

said his name is Mason, and the boy is his son. He told me quite alot about himself last night and I didn’t hesitate to relate my story to him.

We became quick friends and that’s when he finally gives sleep a little chance. He and his son are fully awake now and I don’t know how to wake Anna, she has been through alot last night.

“We will go hunt for meat so we can be able to eat this morning” Mason said taking his walking stick.

“I will come with you….let me……” I started but he stopped me from waking her.

“Don’t worry, let her be. I will bring some herbs for her so she would get over her flu which she caught last night” he said.

“Mmm… thanks sir, I don’t know what I would have done without you. God will return your kindness to you”

“Don’t worry, just take care of her till we come back. Let’s go Eche!” He and his son left us alone.

I lifted her up and went to lay her properly on the palm fronds so I would use the two sheets to cover her.

She opened her eyes weakly when I laid her down on the palm fronds, she held my arm “don’t go anywhere” she mumbled.

“I am not going anywhere, I’m right here next to you” I assured her and drew the stone closer to sit beside her.

“Am sorry” she whispered softly and closed her eyes again.

Mason was right, her temperature is five times as it had been earlier, I feel sad that she’s suffering because of me.

“I think…. I… haven’t been sick for a while now, that’s why I feel….like this” she said, her eyes still closed but tears came out from the corners of her eyes.

“You

will be fine, Anna” I didn’t know what else to say or do, I have only to believe that Mr Mason will help me, I pray he isn’t a spy or something…….

I have to be positive, I have to believe in the power of positive thinking, I have to be strong for Anna.

“I’m really okay, I was alright last night, remember?” She opened her eyes and smiled weakly, she’s trying to be happy, I haven’t seen a girl as brave and strong as her.

“You must be really hungry, I’m so sorry for putting you all through this, I promise to take you back to your house if I get a chance”

“You know, there’s no much danger here compared to the one that awaits me at that house” she rebuffed.

“Why did you say that?” I was confused and surprised at her words.

“Frank, you won’t understand. But don’t worry, I’m fine here, I’m just worried about you”

I squeezed her hand reassuring her that she is safe with me, but how sure am I? She’s already sick I can’t do anything about it.

“Mr Mason promised to help us” I said bluntly.

“I…. I don’t know if we can trust them, Marshall has alot of ………” Her voice trailed off as if she learnt she was saying what she is not supposed to say, I think she’s hiding something from me because she looked at me, surprised at her own words.

“Marshall? Who’s Marshall?!”

Episode 23.

BRIANNA.

I became mute when I realized what I was saying, what’s wrong with me? He’s looking at me curiously and there’s no escape from this at all.

“What are you talking about, Anna?!” He barked again as I withdrew my hand from his, he tormented me with his eyes.

I stood up slowly, when I felt dizzy and almost fell back to the ground, he caught me and held me till I stood firmly on my own.

“Frank, it’s really nothing. I was saying…..that…. that man might be a spy…that’s a secret agent of……the men that’s….” I swallowed hard, how will I deny this.

“Anna, I am not a fool, yeah….all this is now coming together and making a whole lot of sense. Who are you?”

“No, Frank it’s….it’s not what you think. I will tell you everything, please listen to me” I tried to hold him but he moved away from me.

He

went to the place he had kept my weapons and held them to my face. He looked at the black clothes, shoes, gloves and mask before looking at me again.

“I should have known, but I didn’t want to believe my thoughts. Though it’s hard to believe but I…. I trusted you”

Oh God!

I know that am ill, but if it were someone else that lifted that gun to my face, I will fight him or her to death.

I felt even weaker as he threw the sword aside and moved towards me with the gun.

I wiped tears off my face and sniffed countlessly as he came closer to me with the gun pointed at my face and his hand on the trigger.

“How could you do this to me?!”He fused looking at me with those beautiful eyes,which turned red at his anger, it’s almost dark but I could see the hurt in them.

I hated myself at that moment for being the reason he’s like that.
“Frank,do it,shoot me,I would rest in peace if I die by your hands, just pull the trigger!”

I urged him to kill me,no matter what, I have concluded that today marks the end of the river for me.

“Why didn’t you tell me?,why did you save me?!!”he said as my eyes watered and threatened to fall down .

“It doesn’t matter,all you have to do is shoot me and run before it’s too late, because even if you spare me,they will still find me and kill me”I pleaded, not because I wanted to die but because there will be a chance of his escape.

I have caused enough damages to him, it will be alright if I go to rest with the sweet memories of our love that’s about to die.

He surprised me when he threw the gun away and took me into his arms, he knocked breath out of my lungs when his lips crushed on mine,the whole world went spinning………..

MARSHALL.
We set sail after bathing together, I called my men to know the situation of things on our way.

They confirmed it’s still the same, they are waiting for a boat to cross the river and they talked about seeing smoke from the forest which explains that they haven’t gone farther into the forest.

Off course they have no chance at escape, if they go deeper into the forest, animals will feed on them.

The fresh morning sun grazed our skin tenderly as the boatman did his job, Saga held his woman close as he pointed somewhere towards the West and she laughed.

Lang Yan fed his gun and readied himself in time for obstacles ahead while I stood next to Rachel who seemed lost.

“Are you okay?” She’s so calm, she kept staring at space and I wondered if she’s still the same woman I had been with earlier this morning.

“Yeah, I…. I am just dissappointed at Brianna, I thought she would do better than run away with that boy. I wonder who he is to her” she said with a shrug.

“Whoever he is, she only wants to disobey us, that’s all. Can’t you see she only wants to pay you back in her own way, you know how your daughter is” I said circling my arm around her waist.

“I know, I can’t wait to get that boy, not only for the docvments, but to watch her suffer” she raised her chin and her lips parted slightly in a wicked smile.

“That’s the spirit, she’s just playing with fire”

“It’s going to burn her to ashes, hahaha!” That laughter turned many heads towards us.

Another boat came towards us at a slower pace, I noticed that the boatman is deliberately following us behind.

I don’t know if others are seeing it, but I have a strange feeling about it. I thought I should let it go.

After all, we are not the only ones at sail towards north, when we were renting a boat, many people were boarding other vessels as well.

I slipped my hand into my jacket pocket and held my gun ready for any unexpected attack. I don’t trust men who doesn’t show off their faces.

The three men in the boat…. including the boatman….are on hoods which exposed little of their faces.

I held Rachel closer and counted……I know they will make a move…..one, two, three! My head counted and boom!

The first man sprang up and shot at us, I pushed Rachel down in one swift movement, I aimed at him but he’s a demon in dodging bullets.

They all jumped into the water at once, I noticed that our boat was now moving on it’s own, our boatman was shot.

Saga and Sassy were caught by surprise, they lay low on the boat while Lang Yan was shooting non-stop into the water.

“Stop wasting the bullet, let’s exit this boat now! They might attack under!!” I commanded and helped Rachel up.

Saga and Sassy jumped into the water first, I had to talk Rachel into jumping off the boat because she’s very afraid of water.

She doesn’t know how to swim so she dreads rivers, even swimming pools and it will be hard to convince her to stick with me.

“Come on! I will hold you, let’s go!” I held her but she withdrew herself from me and shaked her head negatively.

“No! I can’t!! Marshall” she moved away from me when I came closer, Lang Yan got tired of waiting for us and jumped off.

Then it happened, the boat was pulled from under the water and it sank, I was off before it moved under water, Rachel went down with it.

I surfaced and saw the others at the river side, I went in search of Rachel, when I found her, I held her and we surfaced together.

“Are you alright?” Sassy asked as they helped us out of the water.

The boatman’s corpse floated on the water as it carried it away, he’s already dead and we can’t save his body while we are in danger.

We ran towards the woods for shield, Rachel had drank half of the river, she coughed weakly and I had to drag her with me as I shot back at the men whom are still inside the water shooting at us.

They entered their boat again and sailed forward, they didn’t cease to release bullets at us so we wouldn’t have the balls to give them a chase.

They had planned everything perfectly well and it worked out for them, now we are stranded as my men are and it feels more awful because we are in the woods and not the forest.

Gosh! What’s all this mess, those men can’t get away with ruining my plan….who the hell are they?!

TBC.
