Jewel stretched lazily on his bed. He reluctantly opened his eyes to see Jane staring intensely at him. She was sitting beside him on the bed.
"good morning my Jewel" Jane
"good morning" Jewel responded.
"why the intense look?"
"I'm angry with you" Jane responded.
"what did I do?" Jewel asked.
"you came home drunk last night" Jane responded.
"oh! I'm sorry about that. I just had few drinks with some old friends. I hope I didn't misbehave" Jewel said.
"you shouldn't make friends with such people who will make you drink that much. They are irresponsible." Jane said.
"I'm sorry" Jewel apologized
"hope I'm forgiven"
"yes, you are forgiven, but don't repeat such" Jane said.
"I won't. I promise." Jewel responded.
"okay, let me go and prepare breakfast." Jane said.
"okay" Jewel responded.
Just as Jane tried to stand up from the bed, Jewel held her hand.
She stopped and stared at him.
"is there a problem, my Jewel?" Jane asked.
"Henry, Steven and Jessica will be coming here later today, and together we will pay Angel's parents a visit." Jewel said.
"okay, I will prepare myself. let me go and prepare breakfast then" Jane responded.
She stood up from the bed and left the room.
The door to the room Angel was in, opened and the chubby guy entered. He was carrying a plate of food. He went to meet Angel and dropped the food in her front. He untied her and removed the bandage on her lips.
"this is your breakfast." he said.
"I won't eat that. Not until you tell me who asked you to abduct me and why I was abducted." Angel responded.
"do you want to know who asked me to abduct you?" he asked.
"yes I want to know." Angel responded.
"okay stand up and follow me" the guy said.
Angel didn't stand up. She only stared silently at him. She wasn't sure if he was serious about what he said.
"don't you want to see who asked me to kidnap you" he asked when Angel didn't stand up.
"I want to see the person" Angel responded.
"then stand up and follow me" he said.
Angel stood up immediately.
"okay, who asked you to abduct me?" she asked.
"follow me" he responded and led the way.
Angel followed behind him and he led her to a well furnished sitting room. All the while, Angel thought she was being held hostage in an abandoned building, not knowing that she was being held hostage in someone's apartment. She took her time, staring at every corner of the sitting room.
"who owns this apartment?" Angel asked.
"sit down" the guy responded, pointing at a sofa.
"who asked you to abduct me?" Angel asked.
"Just sit down and stop asking silly questions." he responded.
Angel sat down on the sofa.
"I thought you want to show me who you are working for." Angel said.
"just wait" He responded.
Just when Angel was about to speak further, the sitting room door opened and she immediately turned her direction to the door to see Daniel standing at the door. She glared at him. Daniel walked to meet her.
"hello Angel" he said, smiling.
"you bastard. I know it was you all along" Angel said, angrily.
"aren't you happy to see me?" Daniel asked.
"I will rather choose to see a devil than to see someone like you" Angel responded.
"be nice, I saved your life" Daniel said.
"why are you holding me hostage?" Angel asked.
"don't you know why?" Daniel asked and sat beside her.
"someone else is trying to take what's mine, and I'm only preventing that from happening"
"you are such a coward. All this years, you masked your true identity and pretend to be a nice guy, Just to hurt other people" Angel said, angrily.
"I'm not a coward. I'm just being smart. I'm a smart guy. I have achieved all I want because I'm smart." Daniel responded, smiling.
"You are such a big fool for thinking you have achieved anything meaningful in life. Don't worry. Your life will soon be ruined. Your end is near" Angel said.
"I have nothing to worry about. As far as I have you here with me." Daniel responded.
"And you think you can keep me here for long. Jewel is coming for me. I'm going back home very soon" Angel said.
"my dear, you don't have any home to return to. Everyone thinks you are dead. Even Jewel has already moved on with his life. He has a new girlfriend who live with him in his mansion, and he is even planning to propose to her. So you see why I say you don't have any home to return to." Daniel responded.
"you are a bloody liar. I know my Jewel very well. So I won't believe whatever you are saying. My Jewel doesn't have a new girlfriend." Angel said.
"believe me or not, that's the truth. Her name is Jane. She lives with him in the mansion, sleep on the same bed with him, cook his food and does a lot more for him. You could imagine what they do every night, living in a mansion alone. Every night must surely be a night of pleasure for them. He didn't even wait for long before bringing another lady into his house. It was as if he was waiting for you to disappear, so that he can do whatever he likes. This should show you that Jewel really didn't love you. He was just using you. So you have to forget about him and concentrate on me. I'm not like him. I'm different. When I love, I love completely. So please, give me the chance to show you how much I love you. I promise you that you will never regret giving me a chance" Daniel said.
He tried to hold Angel's hands, but Angel spat on his face before he could do that.
"you disgust me" she said.
Daniel stared angrily at Angel. He wiped off the saliva on his face with his hand. He turned to face the chubby guy.
"take her back inside and tie her. Make sure you don't give her any food or water, until she decides to be my girlfriend" Daniel said, angrily.
"over my dead body will I be your girlfriend" Angel said.
The chubby guy dragged Angel up roughly, and led her back to the room.
Jewel and Jane were already dressed up. They were waiting for Henry, Steven and Jessica to arrive, so that they could start going to Angel's parents place. They sat in the sitting room, staring silently into air. After a while, the sitting room door opened and Steven walked in. He went straight to meet Jewel and shook hands with him.
"Henry and Jessica are not here yet" Steven said and sat down.
"they are on their way" Jewel responded.
Henry and Jessica walked in few minutes later.
"I'm so sorry for keeping you guys waiting" Henry apologized.
"since everyone is here now, let's start going" Steven said.
"you guys should give me a minute" Jewel said
"I have to get something from my room"
He stood up and walked to his room. They all sat down on the sofas, waiting for Jewel. After sitting silently in the sitting room for a while, Jane's phone beeped. She brought it out from her purse and realized it was a message from an unknown number. She opened the message and read it content. She suddenly became unsettled after reading the message. She put her phone back in her purse and tried her best to look calm. Jewel emerged from his room moment later.
"okay guys, let's start leaving" he said.
"I'm sorry Jewel. I won't be able to go with you guys." Jane said and immediately stood up.
"why?" Jewel asked.
"I just remembered that I'm suppose to give someone something today. I asked the person to meet me at my place. I'm sure she will be waiting for me right now. I just have to rushed back home now. I don't want to disappoint her." Jane responded.
"okay, you can go ahead" Jewel said.
"thank you very much" Jane responded.
She hugged Jewel and left the sitting room immediately.
Just a minute after Jane had left, Jewel turned to face Steven.
"it seems you guys will have to go without me. I will meet you guys there later." Jewel said.
"why?" Steven asked, surprised.
"I need to take care of something right now. I will meet you guys there" he responded and immediately left the sitting room also.
Steven, Henry and Jessica stared at one another confused, as they couldn't understand what was going on
