24 Hours With The Ruthless Billionaire.
I received a call from a strange number and I was really being pessimistic on picking it.
I do not like to pick strange numbers plus strange numbers had not being calling me lately.
I didn’t pick it at the first ring but when the digit kept coming through , I picked it to hear out whoever it is.
‘Hello, dear Melissa. ” A masculine voice said and I remained still.
About few seconds later, I began to hear a painful groaning of someone around.
“If you could hear those horrible sounds , they are from your sister and mother.” The man on the phone said.
“Who are you?” I asked courageously in a bit to hide my shock.
“Well, you may call me an anonymous ghost for now. You know why? I’m not ready to disclose my identity.”
“Fine. What did you want?”
“What I want?” He laughed but I wasn’t seeing anything funny to make him laugh about.
I waited for him to reply for few more seconds.
“Your parents are kidnapped here , including your sister. The only way to free them is to leave where you are?”
“What do you mean by : leaving where I am?”
“Leave Jason’s house, dummy.”
I laughed sarcastically. “Susan must have sent you to do this. Just tell her I don’t give her shit “
I hung up and felt really perplexed. I start to toss to and fro my room.
I’m scared of my recent actions on the man and hope that he would not hurt them.
Why in the world would this silly girl go after my family? Oh! She must have even find out a lot about me.
I sunk to the bed painfully and the door creaked open at that moment.
I sullenly turned my head to the door and I saw Jason walked in.
“How are you, Melissa?”
I just opened my mouth without saying a word. I couldn’t even utter any statement. If I try to , I might cry.
I can not afford crying before Jason , it will make me look weak and he would stop believing that I can help him.
“Is everything alright?” He asked more persistently as he walked to me.
I nodded and swallowed my lips. I’m trying all my possible best to hide my pains from him.
He sat at the edge of the bed and looked intently at my face.
“What’s the progress on Suzan’s exit out of my life?”
I shook off the emotions and concentrated immediately on what he just said. With that , I had little courage to reply him.
‘Finding a means of meeting with the father , I might convince him. If I’m able to talk to him and get him by my side , he may advise his daughter to leave you or worst , command her to find another man elsewhere. “
“You really think you can do that?”
“Oh! Yes. I can.”
“Hum!” He lowered his head thoughtfully and brought his face to me again. “I can help.”
I looked at his face inquisitively.
“I will set up a meeting with Suzan’s father and you at a secrete restaurant, I will tell him I’ve got a business mogul who wants to trade business with him. He likes business a lot and I’m sure he would not reject the offer.”
“Fine , can you do that right away?”
“Sure.” Jason replied and put a call across to the man. He told the man what he said he would and he hung up after a while.
“What was his response?”
“He agreed. 5PM tomorrow. Make sure you did not go there armed cause his guards would search you and no matter what…don’t fight. Just discuss as a perfect business woman with him and you can hopefully talk him into telling his daughter to leave my house. “
“Trust me on this. Can I have the address?”
“Sure.” He said and texted the address to me.
