She picked the call and put the phone on her ear.
“Get your useless self here else your mother will die.” A familiar voice said and end the call before Betty could say a word, she put her phone back in pocket and turned to Richard who has already dressed.
“Richard you need to stay here please, you can’t go out there it dangerous.” She said.
“What the fvck are you say?! My mother is with those fvcking niggas and you said I shouldn’t go?!” He yelled at her.
“And what the hell are you going there to do? Those niggas didn’t asked you fo Money to tell you that it you that they want not your mum.” Betty said.
“So I should leave my mum there simply because they didn’t asked me for money right? Is that what you are fvcking saying?” He yelled.
“My love please you have to listen to me, I don’t want anything to happen to you and your mum will return home unharm please.” She pleaded sadly.
“I don’t have your time, let me call my consin and uncle.” He said taking his phone.
“No you don’t have to call them.” She said trying to stopped him from calling Caleb and his father because she knew they are behind everything, Richard looked at her without saying anything and dialled Caleb’s number, it rang twice before Caleb picked.
“Hey consin, what’s popping?” Caleb asked pretending to be innocent.
“My mum has be kidnapped by some fvcking niggas.” He said.
“What? When I mean how?” Caleb asked like he knew nothing about it.
“Few minutes ago and they said I should come over to meet them else they will kill my mum and you know I don’t want to lose my mum.” He said.
“Just wait for me, am coming to the house now, dad is not at home he would have come with me but don’t worry when I come we will go together.” Caleb said.
“Ok thanks bro.” He said.
“What are family for?.” Caleb said.
“Will be waiting.” He said.
“Okay.” Caleb replied and the call went dead.
Meanwhile Betty has sent Jordan text message telling him what was happening and also told him to come back home and stay with Richard so that Caleb will not take Richard out.
In 20 minutes time Jordan was already in Richard’s house while Betty left and we t straight to Caleb’s house, she didn’t meet him at home so she called him, he picked the call instantly.
“Where is my mum and Richard’s mum?” She asked
“Listen young girl, I am driving ok and I don’t know what you are talking about.” Caleb said.
“Umm, Caleb, where did you kept my mum and Richard’s mum?” She asked.
“Listen to me, you will not see your mother again, get that into your head.” He said and end the call, she tries calling him back but he refused to picked, She left there frustrated, confused and angry.
Caleb got to Richard’s house, he pulled out from his car and hurrily went inside, he met Richard pacing up and down and Jordan was standing close to the door.
“Hey consin.” He said as he rushed to Richard.
“My mum is out there suffering and Jordan has refused to let me go out, Betty was the first to stopped me.” Richard said, Jordan didn’t say anything because he don’t want Richard to know that they are trying to save him from be killed by his so call consin.
“And why didn’t they allow you to go out?” He asked.
“I don’t know, they said my life is in danger.” Richard replied
It ok, just calm down let me call my dad.” He said bringing out his phone from his pocket, he dialled his dad’s number and he picked almost immediately.
“Son how are you?” His dad asked.
“Dad, am not fine, there is problem.” Caleb said.
“What’s the matter I mean what happened?” His dad asked.
“Richard’s mum was kidnapped today.” Caleb said.
“What? How why?” His dad asked.
“I don’t know, they asked Richard to come to the address that they sent him with an unknown number else they will kill his mum.” Caleb explained.
“Ok, you know what, you go with Richard to the address and i Will call the Police, They will meet you guys on your way.” His dad said.
“Ok dad.” He replied and the call went dead. Off course Richard and Jordan heard everything because Caleb put the phone on speaker.
“Go get dressed let’s go.” Richard said referring to Jordan.
“I can go this way.” Jordan replied.
“He is coming with us.” Richard tells Caleb.
“Alright no problem, let’s go.” Caleb said and they left. They went with Richard SUV Jeep, Jordan was the driver.
On the other hand, Betty was walking home, she was close to her house when a message entered her phone from same unknown number, she opened the message and it reads (“come to this address below if you want to see your mother.”) She ran backward and boarded a taxi, since she doesn’t has a car. She didn’t know that it was the same place Richard, Caleb and Jordan were going, she didn’t even know that Richard still left his house, she was fast enough to get there before them. She pulled out from the taxi and paid the driver, she walked gently into a building that was burnted, she looked around and nobody was there.
“You are Betty Lee right?” A voice said from behind, she turned instantly.
“Yes, where is my mum and Richard’s mum?” She asked. The guy that was standing before her laughed.
“Bring them here.” He said and Mrs Marsha and Mrs Antonia were dragged out.
“Betty!” Her mother called.
“Betty Lee!” Mrs Marsha also called.
“Let them go.” She said.
“Betty, what are you doing here?” Her mother asked.
“I came to take you guys.” She replied.
“Liar! Your daughter paid us 5,000 dollars to kidnapped you and Richard’s mother.” The guy said that was when Mrs Antonia knew that the woman with her was the mother to the guy her daughter is in love with.
“What? Betty!” Mrs Marsha called
“That’s a lie.” Betty said defending herself, her mother couldn’t say anything because she was too shocked to say a word.
“She asked us to kill you, her mother and Richard who is on his way here because of your late husband wealth.” The guy said just then Richard, Caleb, Jordan and police people came in.
“Betty!!” Her mother called as Betty turned back, one of the police woman shot her as she was trying to run and the bullet meet her on her hand and she jumped out from the window, the police woman pursued her, she kept running with her hand that was bleeding, she jumped some stuffs till she ran out of the police woman’s sight.
Meanwhile the guy and his boys were handcuffed.
“He is also among, he and Betty sent us.” The guy said pointing at Jordan.
“What? Jordan!?” Richard called in shocked as he turned to Jordan.
“I didn’t do anything.” Jordan said defending himself but Richard didn’t listen to him because Caleb has poisoned his mind, Jordan was handcuffed and was taken alongside with the guys.
Mrs Marsha, Richard and Caleb went home leaving only Mrs Antonia who find her way home crying like a baby.
Two days later, Jordan was released after some investigation and they found out that he was innocent but they never knew it was Caleb and his father’s plan and also police were still looking for Betty because they checked her name in computer, they found out that Betty has Killed before in Brazil and also in England, therefore she is wanted. Jordan went back to Richard’s house but unfortunately he was sacked simply because Richard uncle (Mr Benjamin) told him not to allow Jordan work for again because it dangerous and Jordan might kill him so Richard did as instructed by his uncle.
Jordan went to his own house and called Carla to know if Betty was with her and he was told that Betty was with Olivia. Jordan called Mr Bruno’s driver, Liam, to his house.
“Once again you are welcome to my house.” Jordan said.
“Thanks so why did you sent for me?” Liam asked.
“I sent for you because I want you to help me.” Jordan said.
