Caleb drove home and angrily went into his room without talking to his father even when his dad was calling him, he refused to answer. He entered his room and collapse on the bed. (“What the fvck!! I can’t believe what Betty said to my face!! She must pay for this!”) He said aloud angrily and stood up from the bed and was pacing up and down when his door opened and his dad came in.
“Caleb, what is wrong with you?” His dad asked as he walked fully into the room, Caleb didn’t answer him, he kept walking around.
“Son talk to me, what is the matter with you?” His dad asked again.
“Betty! That daughter of a nobody dares me.” He said angrily.
“What did she do?” His dad asked.
“Betty told me to my face that she will not kill Richard as we agreed and the worst part is that she is already in love with him.” He said.
“What? Then we must kill the both them.” His father said.
“No dad, you know we can’t kill Betty, whoever that kill Betty is in trouble.” He said.
“Then what do we do?” His dad asked.
“I don’t know I can’t even think straight, am confused.” He said.
“Ok, let’s call Jackie to come over she might has an idea, what do you think?” His dad asked.
“You are right, let me call her.” He said and took his phone from the bed and called Jackie, she picks instantly.
“Sup honey.” Jackie asked.
“Am not fine, can you come over?” He asked.
“What happened?” Jackie asked.
“Please just come over.” He said.
“Ok, am coming.” Jackie said and end the call.
“What did she said.?” His dad asked
“She said she is coming.” He replied.
“Ok, I will be in my room, just calm down and wait for her and whatever she says when she comes let me know.* His dad said as he walked to the door while Caleb nod without saying anything and his father left.
55 minutes later, Jackie knocked on Caleb’s door.
“Yea come in.” He said from the bed wearing only boxer, no shirt , and Jackie entered, seeing him with no shirt she began to feel him.
“Looking s£xy without shirt.” She said smiling and bitting her lower lip as she sat on the bed.
“That’s not the reason I called you.” He said sitting up on the bed.
“So why did you call me, the look on your face says something is wrong, what it’s?” She asked.
“It Betty.” She said.
“What did she do?” She asked.
“She told me directly to my face that she will not kill Richard and that she is going to protect him.” He explained.
“fvck off!! What the hell are you talking about!?” She asked almost yelling.
“I am damn serious.” He said.
“So what do you suggest we do?” She asked.
“That’s why I called you, I don’t know what to say, think or do.” He said sadly.
“We need to do something because Richard needs to die.” She said.
“So what do you think we should do?” He asked.
“I can remember you told me that one of Richard’s female friends name by Dina is in love with Richard but she is not happy because Betty is always around him. I think we should use that girl and Liam Mr Bruno’s driver, what do you think?” She asked.
“That’s a good idea but how do we go about it?” He asked.
“First try to convince them to understand our game, I will personally talk to Dina while you talk to Liam after that we will send some of our boys to kidnap Richard’s mum and Betty’s mum and tell them to tell Richard that his love Betty is the one that send them to kidnap his mum because she wants his father wealth. Them we will tell Dina to decieve Richard that she wants to show him something or take him to a save place meanwhile Liam will be the one to drive, on their way, Richard will be adopted and bought this us in our usual place then he will be kill and Dina will be the one to shoot him or even stappes him after which we will call the police on her she will be arrested alongside with Liam, Betty and Jordan.” She said.
“Hmm, nice idea but how do we kidnap Richard when Jordan is all over him?” He asked.
“Leave that to me, I will handle it.” She said .
“Master planner, this is why I always talk about you, come here let’s merry over our victory.” He said smiling.
“Hmm, it seems you know what I want.” She said as she claims the bed and they engaged in a passionate kiss as Caleb give her the romance of her life.
Meanwhile, Betty took her phone and called Jordan.
“Sup Betty?” He asked as soon as he picks the call.
“Can we see tomorrow?” She asked.
“Hope no problem?” He asked.
“I think there will be problem if we don’t handle it now.” She said.
“Ok, at what time do you want us to see?” He asked.
“After work.” She replied.
“Ok, I will informed the others.” He said.
“Alright bye.” She said.
“By good night.” He said and she end the call.
The next day at exactly 5:30pm, Betty and the others were sitted together at their usual place.
“Betty, why did you call this meeting?” Carla asked.
“Yesterday, Caleb came to my house and threatened that I will go to jail if I don’t kill Richard because I told him I won’t kill Richard, it not like am scared of going to jail but I just don’t want anything to happen to Richard… Anyways, listen to this record.” She said and turned on her audio recorder. They all listen to Betty and conversation and the file was transferred immediately into their own devices.
“Hmm this is serious, what do we do?” Olivia asked. Everyone was slient looking at each other.
“We need to act fast before Caleb strikes.” Betty said.
“You are right but what do we do?” Carla asked.
“I will go to Richard’s house and tell him to leave this town with his mother for the main time, Jordan you will prepare their flight ticket while I face Caleb and his father even if I die I don’t care.” She said and stood up.
“See you guys later or even Tomorrow.” She said and left. The others layer discussed on what to do to assist Betty because she can’t fight Jackie, Caleb and his father alone. Betty got to Richard’s house and met Mrs Marsha who she already knows that is Richard’s mother, she was going out.
“Good day mum.” She greeted.
“Oh good day my dear, how are you doing?” Mrs Marsha asked.
“Am fine ma and you?” She asked.
“Am good, you want to see Richard right?” Mrs Marsha asked and smiled.
“Yes and it seems you are going out.” She said .
“Yes just going to get some stuffs at the supermarket.” Mrs Marsha replied.
“Ok, go well,. Will be inside.” She said.
“Ok bye dear.” Mrs Marsha said and they departed. Betty ran upstairs and met Richard operating his laptop, he smiled when he saw her.
“My love.” He said as she walked to him.
“How are you doing?” She asked.
“Better seeing you.” He said and they laughed.
“I want to talk to you about something.” She said.
“What’s that?” He asked.
“I want you and your mum to leave this town for now because of what is about to happen.” She Said.
“And what’s about to happen?” He asked.
“Richard, I shouldn’t be telling you this but I just have to because of the love I have for you, your life is in danger, if you don’t leave this town you will….” The sound of Richard’s phone interuppted her. Richard took his phone from behind him and starred at the screen “UNKNOWN NUMBER” was written, he looked at Betty then to his phone.

“Then listen to her.” The voice said and put the phone on Mrs Marsha’s ear.
“Son! Richard!” Mrs Marsha called crying and the person took the phone.
“Now listen, do what you are asked to do else your mother’s corpse will be bought to you.” The person said and the call went dead.
“No my mother!” Richard screamed claiming down from the bed while Betty held him, she heard everything because Richard put the phone on speaker.
“Richard, you can’t go.” She said.
“What the hell are you saying!! My mother has be kidnapped and you said I can’t go !.” For the first time he yelled at Betty but don’t care.
