“What does Jackie do for a living?” Olivia asked.
“She into drugging with Caleb and his dad. When Caleb came to Brazil, Jackie introduce me to him so he told me he want me to work for him.” She said.
“And what kind of work?” Jordan asked.
“Drugging,. At Frist i refused but later accepted after Jackie ensured me that nothing is going to happen and also the police is not going to caught me, they made me shed blood.. i have useless myself, i grew up in street and i follow bad gangs that’s one of the reasons my dad throw i and my mum out and we relocated to England two years ago, so on that faithful night when rain was falling i saw a car that had or was insolved in an accident and i went closer to the car, i saw a young Man in the driver’s seat and a elderly man at the back seat. They requested that i should help them so i called an ambulance that came to carried them to the hospital. I remember the man gave me his card to call him, i really don’t know why and he also told me his name was Mr Bruno.” She said.
“Actually, the car didn’t or wasn’t insolved in an accident, we were attrack by some mask men, they shot the car tires and shot Mr Bruno four times but the bullets meet him on his arms and legs and they also shoot me too.” Jordan said.
“Yea, i remember the man was bleeding.” She said.
“So where were you going to or coming from??” Barista Daniel asked.
“I was actually going home after delivering some drugs to some Caleb’s costumer.” She said.
“It ok, you know the police wants you and if they get you, you are going to jail.” Olivia said.
“I know and that’s why I want to save Richard first before I go to jail, even if this is the only good thing I can do before I will be kill.” She said still crying.
“You don’t have to cry, all you have to do is to pretend as if you are still in the game with Caleb and Jackie then you bring us meanful information and we are going to try our best to make sure you don’t go to jail and even if you go, you won’t spend long there.” Carla said.
“Ok thanks.”she said.
“Secondly let no other ear hear this anyway you are a wise girl.” Barista Daniel said.
“Thank you very much sir, I have to go now it late already.” Betty said as she stood up.
“Yea, good night.” Jordan said as the others nod while she left. She came out of the room and stood behind the door as if the knew they want to say something.
“Jordan, we have to help this girl because no criminal will confess their crimes so easily.” Barista Daniel said.
“You are right, to me Caleb and Jackie are the cause of everything.” Carla said.
“So what do you guys suggest we do now?” Olivia asked.
“I am thinking of calling Charles, Richard’s childhood friend, you know he is a lawyer…. Maybe he can be her lawyer but we are not going to tell her, let’s see if Charles can work things out so that she won’t go to jail or even if she goes, she won’t spend long there at least two to three years in prison in not that long. We all know the law of killing someone and I believe if she is able to save Richard things will be easy for her .” Jordan said.
“Yea, you are very correct.” Olivia said.
“Then let the game began.” Carla said .
“Got to go now.” Jordan said standing while the others stood up too.
“Even me, my wife is waiting for me at home.” Barista Daniel said while they laughed. Betty smiled after listening to their conversation and walked away.
Three months later, Alot of things has be revealed concerning the ploit to kill Richard. Caleb, his father and Jackie were not even aware of that. Richard and Betty has deeply fall in love, they hangout everytime and go to parties together. Charles on the other hand, has become Betty’s lawyer, he was told everything and was working on it due Betty pretend not to know what was happening.
Meanwhile, Caleb was beginning to worry because Betty hasn’t give him any feedback for the past three months so he decided to ask her.
Betty was lying on her bed viewing all the lovely pictures she had took with Richard when Caleb’s call came in. (“Oh my God!! What does this son of a bitch want from me now!?”) She said angrily and picked the call.
“Yes, any problem?” She asked angrily.
“I am in front of your gate, come out we need to talk.” Caleb said.
“In front of my gate?? So you came to my house without my consent?” She asked.
“Are you coming out or not?” Caleb asked.
“And if I don’t?? Anyway am coming.” She said and end the call. She clamed down from the bed and took a brown jacket from her wardrobe then went out, before going out, she took her audio recorder and put it inside her pocket. She walked to Caleb’s car, opened the front door and entered.
“What do you want?” She asked
“Betty, it be three months now since you start working with Richard yet no feedback.” Caleb said.
“And so?” She asked.
“You are asking me and so?? For cry out loud, he is already in love with you and you both hangout and go to parties and places together, can’t you convince him to marry you?” He asked.
“Well Caleb I can’t tell a man to marry me, if you can’t wait then you leave it.” She said.
“Ok fine, if you can’t te him to marry you, why not invite him for a dinner in a restaurant and pay one of the waiter or waitress to poison him?” He asked.
“I can’t do that Caleb.” She said.
“Why? Our agreement is for you to make him fall in love with you, which you did already and kill him.. what’s hard there to do?” He said.
“Well Caleb, the truth is I can’t kill him, for Christ sake Richard is an innocent man, him loves you and your dad genuinely, he sees you as a brother and your dad as a father why do you want him dead? Oh because of his father’s wealth?!! Greed idiot that’s what you are!” She yelled at him.
“How dare you say such word before me?!” He yelled at her angrily.
“And what will you do?” She asked.
“Listen to me, if you don’t want to rott in jail you better kill Richard.” He said.
“And if I kill Richard I will still go to jail, so you thought I don’t know that’s you and Jackie’s plan.! Brainless idiots.” She said and came out of the car while Caleb followed her.
“You dare not walk out on me.” He said walking to her with his gun pointing at her.
“Do you know I can blow off your head this minute?” He asked as he stands in front of her.
“Hahaha! Now listen to me, you, your father and Jackie must rott in jail, I don’t care if I go to jail but one thing is for sure Richard will not die I will protect him with my last drop of blood.” She said sounding real serious.
“Don’t tell me you are already in love with him.” He said.
“Oh yes! Any woman that win Richard’s heart is a lucky woman because he is not EVIL like you and your father.” She said.
“Hmm, Betty I give you three days if in the next three days nothing happens you will hear from me.” He said as he turned to leave.
“I am ready to fight you till death nothing will happen.” She said to him.
“Ok we shall see.” He said and entered his car.
“We shall see nothing son of a bastard bitch.” She said before going inside.
Caleb didn’t know that Betty recorded everything they said, she bought out the recorder from her pocket immediately she entered her room and smiled. (“Foolish boy, let’s see how this game will end”) she thought before keeping the recorder inside her bag.
The war between Caleb and Betty is drawn…
