Dangerous Liaison Episode 14
Yvonne’s heart broke when she saw them. Desmond was surprised to see her at his door. She looked pale and weak.
“Desmond, so this is what you are busy with that you couldn’t even pick up my calls?” Yvonne said.
Desmond quickly ran to where she was standing and held her, ignoring what she was saying.
Desmond was just happy to see her, but Yvonne was still hurt about what she saw. It looked like Desmond had been k-ssing Franca.
Yvonne had become very sensitive after her recent ordeal at the hands of Daisy and Tiger. She was psychologically traumatized.
Franca played along and helped Desmond usher her in. You could tell from the way she looked that she was very weak.
Yvonne never mentioned what happened at Daisy’s house. She lied to Desmond that she escaped.
They planned on seeing Franca’s dad first thing the following morning.
Desmond was just happy to have Yvonne back. She, on the other hand, was hurt and suspicious. She wondered what Franca was doing at Desmond’s house that time of the night.
What she had seen upon her arrival made her think think different things. She felt that Desmond should have been on the move, searching for her. But he appeared unconcerned, especially as he had texted “Busy” when she sent him a message.
Much as she was in love with Desmond, she now had a reason to doubt him. She, however, just pondered everything in her heart and decided to leave the confrontation for later.
They spent the night together. Soon it was morning and they prepared to set off to their Dad’s place.
Franca went out with her purse. She came back almost immediately and it looked like she had returned with something in her purse.

Yvonne and Desmond wondered where she had gone but somehow didn’t find it important to ask her.
They quickly set out.
Franca received a strange phone call. What made it suspicious was that she never spoke back to the person. She only answered and listened to the caller.
Caller: ”You have the package now, work with it before I come in”
That was the only thing the caller said.
Franca made a weird comment right after she received the call.
“Yvonne, don’t you think it’s about time you tell Desmond about JayJay?” Franca said.
Yvonne was surprised. She wondered why Franca was ask such a question. Besides, who was JayJay? She even didn’t know him.
Before Yvonne could open up her mouth to ask, Desmond jumped in .
“Who are you talking about Franca, who is JayJay?” Desmond asked.
“Oh! Don’t worry, I don’t even know what I was thinking. Yvonne doesn’t know him, he is a close friend of mum’s” She answered.
Desmond knew it was a lie. He was determined to ask Franca about JayJay in the absence of Yvonne.
Desmond was convinced that there were a lot of things that he didn’t know about Yvonne.
First, it was the lie about Yvonne being related to Franca. Then, he had to find out that Yvonne was a l-sbian and now JayJay.
All these went through Desmond’s mind.
Meanwhile, Yvonne too became very suspicious.
She had noticed some closeness between Desmond and Franca, based on what she had seen yesterday when she returned.
Barriers between Yvonne and Desmond started popping out. They were losing trust in each other.
It was very clear now that Franca was on the move. She was striking from an angle they least expected.
Her plans were working, Franca was obviously up to something.

She had just succeeded in planting doubts between Desmond and Yvonne.
However, there were more questions to be answered. More mysteries unsolved.
Who was behind the killing of Yvonne’s mum?
What is Daisy trying to achieve in all these?
Were Ray and Yvonne really twins?
Who is the “He” Franca and Susan keep talking about?
And what does Susan have against Desmond?
Soon as they arrived their father’s house, Franca rushed to the living room and placed something beneath one sofa.
Yvonne and Desmond by then were just entering so they didn’t see what she had done.
Their dad wasn’t home, he was on his way from the mortuary where his late wife was.
They all sat in the living room and waited for him.
Even though Yvonne and Desmond sat together, you could feel the tension between them.
Franca called one of the maids to dust up the living room because it looked dusty.
Yvonne suggested they go to her room but Desmond insisted they stayed in living room as he was comfortable there.
The maid came to the sofa where Franca had placed something and started cleaning it.
As soon as the maid lifted the cushion from the sofa, she saw one of Yvonne’s work brown envelopes which had her work address on.
She quickly brought it to her.
“Madam, I think this is yours.” the maid said.
Yvonne didn’t look surprised as she knew that she sometimes brought her work stuff home.
Desmond was sitting beside her as she opened the envelop.
She was shocked to see the pictures that Daisy had taken while She was being raped by Tiger in there.
Desmond also saw it and quickly took the pictures from Yvonne to make sure what he saw was real.
Indeed it was real. He stood up asked
“Yvonne, what is this? Tell me” Desmond asked.
“Desmond, I can explain, please listen to me.” Yvonne said.
“Tell me now, Yvonne. What’s the meaning of this, who is this guy?” Desmond asked, his temper was rising.
Yvonne couldn’t take it anymore. She ran into her room and shut the door behind her.
Franca quickly came to Desmond to look at the pictures.
“Oh no, that’s JayJay.” Franca said.
“JayJay? But didn’t you say he was a friend of your mother’s? Desmond asked.
“Look Desmond, you don’t expect me to be telling you everything about Yvonne. That’s her ex-boyfriend. He went abroad for a while but I hear he is back in the country now. It seems he still has eyes for Yvonne and from what I see in these pictures, they have met recently.” Franca lied.
What a set up!
Unfortunately, Desmond was falling for Franca’s lie.
While Franca was still holding the pictures and envelope, her Dad came in.
She quickly hid the pictures so that her Dad wouldn’t see it. That act convinced Desmond that Franca really cherished her sister. He thought she was protecting her sister.
Her Dad came in still feeling very sad about the death of his ex-wife.
“Welcome daddy” Franca said to him.
“Thank you. I still can’t believe your mother is dead. Who ever did this will surely pay for it,” her dad said.
“Sir, how far with the police, any news yet?” Desmond asked.
”Well, that’s the good news. The police discovered some fingerprints that looked like they belonged to a lady. They are yet to find a match but once they do, I will make sure that the killer pays dearly for this.” Franca’s father said.
Franca panicked a little when he said that.
Desmond asked to leave. Just as he was stepping out of the living room, a weird looking man entered the compound.
He was dressed in suit and appeared very serious.
When he entered the compound, he saw Desmond and Franca walking towards the gate.
As soon as he saw Desmond, he halted and starred at him looking very furious.
“Welcome sir” Franca greeted him.
“Where is your Father?” He asked without acknowledging her greeting.
“in,side, sir” Franca answered and without saying another word, he went towards the living room.
“Who is that weird man, Franca?” Desmond asked.
“Mr. Aziz, Yvonne’s biological father and my mother’s uncle.” Franca answered.
“Oh! So that means that’s Ray’s father?” Desmond asked.
“Ok. That’s why he gave me that look. I think he knows something, I am not safe Franca” Desmond said. He was beginning to panic.
“Oh come on Desmond, he doesn’t know you. I can assure you that. Look, I can give you a room where you can stay out of sight for a while. It’s just across the road, it belongs to my Dad.” Franca offered.
Desmond immediately accepted. He felt he’d be safer there.
He was fast getting attracted to Franca again. He appreciated her for being caring and protective.
That was what he knew Franca for.

“I will go home and pack a few things, will call you once I’m done. And please, kindly let your sister know about this arrangement. I’m really finding it difficult to trust her now. Thank you so much Franca, you have really been helpful. ” Desmond said.
Franca hugged him very tight; she didn’t feel like letting him go. Everything seemed to be going in her favor. Desmond was liking her again and having doubts about Yvonne.
“Ermm Franca, I think you should let go now” Desmond jokingly said. The hug was getting uncomfortably long.
That moment, he knew that Franca still felt something for him. But he ignored it until she said:
“Desmond, I am sorry to say this… I still love you. But hey! Sometimes the only way to prove your love is by letting that person be where he wants to be. I’m sorry for all that I may have caused you and Yvonne, I guess i didn’t know how to express what I felt.” Franca said.
Desmond was touched by her words. He took her by the hand looked straight into her eyes.
“Franca i think it’s high time you forgot the past and move on. I know it’s hærd but you have to. I appreciate your effort and kind gesture but I can’t take advantage of it. Let’s talk more about this when I return,” Desmond said.
He gave her another hug and left.
Yvonne had been sobbing. All of a sudden, she felt some courage rise within her. She remembered her late mother’s advice from when she was growing up.
“Humans can never achieve anything without a push. Nothing can be given on a silver platter. Don’t let anyone overshadow your happiness, fight for what will make you happy without stepping on other people’s toes.”
This advice had been her inspiration growing up. As she remembered this, she developed this inner strength that motivated her to keep fighting.
She wiped off her tears, picked up the phone and began calling Desmond.
In the living room, Mr. Aziz and Franca’s father were engaged in a hot argument.
“My daughter has every right to know who her Daddy is and now that her mother is gone, I am suppose to take care of her, not you” Mr. Aziz said.
“Where were you all this while? Now you come back here telling me all these nonsense. You are talking about rights when you could never take up your responsibilities as a father.” Franca’s step-father said in anger.
Their voices were up and Yvonne heard them from her room.
She quickly went downstairs and saw Mr. Aziz who she had never seen before arguing with her step-dad.
Their conversation suggested that what Franca had told Desmond was the truth.
Yvonne got downstairs and interrupted the two angry men.
“What’s going on here, whose biological father is who?” Yvonne asked.
