Sonia stood transfixed for a few minutes trying to catch her breath, perhaps she didn’t just kiss Nicklaus, oh wait she did… She tried to take a step and discovered her shoes were not laced, how did that happen?
She bent to lace it back and discovered the buttons shielding her cleavage were loosed already, she held her suit jacket in a bid to close it up, still transfixed, she pondered on how he was so quick to unlace her shoes and unbutton her shirt, they just kissed for barely 3 minutes if she calculated rightly, was he going to have sex with her right there in the office? Hell no, she wouldn’t have permitted that, she isn’t cheap, she resolved In her mind. She attempted to sit back when her brain suddenly rebooted; Debrah! what the hell! Debrah was going to shoot her? Shoot her! For kissing Niklaus?
She attempted to sit back again but her curiosity got the better of her, his office door was left open. She remembered his stern-looking eyes when he warned she never steps into his office uninvited, but then, he isn’t here, she still felt there was something she could find that would reveal his true identity as code507.
Steadily she stepped into the office, the door creaked and she shook in fear, and then hissed when she realized it was the door leading to his office creating an unusual tension.
She approached his table and fondled through the countless papers and files, reaches for his drawers, emptied it in search for anything she could find, her hands were shaking, she breathes unstably, her heart pounding against her chest and it was all for nothing. It took her over 15 minutes to realize her search was fruitless and counted for waste when she found nothing! Nothing!
She hissed and placed both hands on her waist and was going to leave when she noticed a picture, it was torn in two, all she saw was a part. She tried to figure who was in the picture but it was torn, she perceived it was a child, around the age of 2 to 3 years of age. It wasn’t really necessary and she attempted to drop the picture when she suddenly realized she had a similar picture which was torn, surprisingly she had just a part, could this be the other half of the picture she has been searching for years; well, there was only one way to find out, she tucked the picture into her suit pocket and hurried out.
“Sharpshooter two buildings up by the left, he has 5 shots left”
Nicklaus whispered but he was heard.
“I’ll cause a distraction…”
Debrah suggested and attempted to make a move but Nicklaus stopped her.
“No, no…I’ll do that, here…take the car keys, once I give you signal you head for the car, I’ll join you”
Debrah attempted to refuse but his eyes warned her not to, and then he made a quick move before she uttered any other word…
The bullet was quick, but he was smarter and calculative, he moved and dodged all 5 bullets.
He hurried to the car, and before the assassin could reload, they were far gone.
“Who the hell wants you dead?”
Debrah started the conversation while she drove.
“I should be asking you the same question”
Nicklaus retorted pensively
“What the hell is going on? We are the hunters, but we are now being hunted?”
Jan sat in his office shuffling through files upon files trying to find a clue with all Jessy had provided him, she was being framed, he can see that now, it’s either the chief, Mike, or both of them having a hand in this plot.
They both have the lead of the code all over them. He thought of confronting Mike but remembered how the last one ended with the chief, it’s not a good decision.
He sat back in his chair and suddenly remembered Sonia, she must have a lead, but then he was scared, what if code507 attacks again, he had to have her arrested but damn! This is the woman he is planning to get married to.
While he pondered a mail popped his laptop, he would have rightly ignored but it read anonymous, which connotes very serious Information.
He quickly opened and read, almost whispering.
CONSIDER THIS A GIFT TO YOU, JESSY IS INNOCENT, OH, AND SO IS THE CHIEF AND MIKE, NONE OF THEM IS THE CODE, YOU MUST BE STUPID IF YOU DO NOT NOTICE YOU ARE BEING PLAYED. WANNA KNOW WHO THE CODE IS, AN ADDRESS WOULD BE SENT TO YOU AT EXACTLY 5 AM WITH THE TIME OF THE MEETING, MEET ME THERE TO FIND OUT. AND JUST SO YOU KNOW, JESSY DIES TOMORROW”
His eyes went wide, Jessy? Jessy?
He ran out and found his way to the cell she was kept.
“Where is Jessy? Where is Jessy?”
He gripped the neck of the policeman he could find when he found the cell empty.
“She has been sent to the states sir”
His hands weakened, his ass met the floor, and with a low breathe he muttered
“I’ve been a fool”
