“Didn't you say that a deal with the devil is not a deal but a death sentence?” “Yes, but that doesn't matter if you're both devils.” “I'm not like you,” Liana retorted. “You're about to become worse,” he chuckled, shaking his head. "I have never betrayed a friend.” *** Gina and her best friend Liana are the only people who know her darkest secret, or so she thinks. When Liana disappears, she begins to realize things aren't as they seem. The blackmail following the disappearance leaves Gina with some startling questions about whoever knows her secret obsession. She slowly finds herself drawn into a web of robbery, kidnap and murder. Can Gina discover who the person behind everything is before it's too late or will the cagophilia she battles lead to her demise?View More
Gina stifled a yawn and closed the history book she'd been reading. She got up from the floor and sat on the bed. Putting the book on the table, she switched to lying position and relaxed. She was tired and needed to rest. A minute had not passed when the door bell rang. Groaning, she raised up her head."My goodness, I can't even take a nap." She got up, thinking of getting her own place. Being at her parents home was getting annoying as she couldn't control the number of visitors that came in. If she had her own house, she'd tell her friends not to come unannouced. It had been a big mistake, chosing to study at a community college in her town. At that time, she had not foreseen the restrictions it would have on her."James?" She saw him on opening the door. Looking up and down, she spoke; "What a surprise! When did you get back?"Two years back, James had moved into the town. Gina, during her key escapades had found him stealing. After that, she'd researched a
The man in the mask slipped out of the room immediately. Liana thought she recognized his scent but she couldn't place it. She felt like she'd met the man before and even talked to him. Who was he? She tried to remember where she'd seen those dark eyes but her memory failed her. That man lived in their town. That much she could tell. Now, she realized he was someone who knew them and had probably been watching them for a long time. She tried to rack her brains but nothing came up so she decided to give it time. With time, she'd figure out everything.Hellen regained a consciousness and looked around the room, wide-eyed. Liana felt sad for her but she was glad that they were now two hostages. She now had company and Hellen was a fighter. Besides, it'd be easier to escape if they planned well."Hi Hellen," RK said, standing behind the chair she was seated on. He put his hands on her shoulders. "Sad that I won't be throwing you a welcome party. Have you met Liana, y
Gina sat on her bed, placed a pillow on her lap and stared at the table. Dylan's keys were missing and she didn't remember when she'd last seen them. She had searched every part of the room in vain. Someone was intent on framing her and destroying her life. She got up and sat on the chair then opened her notebook which was on the table. She picked up a pen and tried to think of everyone who might want to hurt her.The first name she wrote down was Rory. Motive had to be revenge because she'd constantly turned him down. To her, he seemed like someone with a twisted mind so that was possible. Next came Liana. It was possible that Liana staged the whole act though she couldn't think of a motive. She suspected Liana because she was the only other person who knew that Gina had cagophilia. Gina knew her personality and it was one which was bound to offend some people in ways she may not understand. The third person was Candela who hated Gina for "stealing" her boyfriend. It wasn't
Gina paced about the room, pondering on what to tell Liana's parents who were waiting in the living room. She had been dreading this moment for so long but it was inevitable. She had to face it will all the strength she believed she had. It had been easy to lie to Barnes because he had no connection to Liana and herself. It's much easier to lie to a stranger than someone you know, love and respect. Lying to Liana's parents was like lying to her parents."Gina!" Her mother called. Gina's stomach shifted uneasily and she went to the door and opened it. She could feel her pulse pounding as she headed towards the living room. She entered and saw Liana's parents wearing black suits. They had come straight from work, that was obvious."Where's my daughter, Gina?" Mrs Tran spoke, freezing Gina in her tracks. She had never used that tone when speaking to her."I don't know where she is," Gina said, unsure whether to proceed and greet them. The tension in the
Liana woke up with a slight headache. She groaned when she remembered she was tied up. It had been so hard to sleep with RK breathing heavily. His behavior had been strange but she was thankful he had not harmed her in anyway. She had thought he was a monster at first but was beginning to realize he may be a good person being forced to do bad things by whoever the mastermind of the revenge plot was. Even when she had pestered him to reveal he had managed not to say anything. He was loyal to whoever was operating behind the scenes, the real psycho."Hey," she said to the sleeping form beside her."I need to pee. Untie me.""Stop making so much noise," he said, opening his eyes. He sat up and looked around the room."It's already morning." Liana informed him."So? Can't I rest because it's morning?""Will you please untie me?" She persisted. "I really need to ease myself."He stood up and went to the closet where he removed a gun. "
It was already dark when Gina and the officer who'd introduced himself as Barnes reached the police station. Most of the officers had left so there were only two cars parked outside. As Gina got out of the car, she saw a boy called Rory standing outside the court building which was opposite the police station. He smiled and Gina turned away. Everything about him had annoyed her. He was in sophomore year in another college and claimed to be in love with her. Even though she'd turned him down countless times, he still kept talking about how she was all he wanted. It seemed like turning him down made her more desirable to him. She was tired of having to tell him the same things over and over again.Detective Barnes led the way up the outdoor stairs into the station. At the door, Gina turned to see Rory who was now typing on his phone. She was becoming a little bit suspicious of him."Have a seat, Miss Breya." Barnes indicated a couch and went to one of the inner off
Liana was tired of staring at the walls. It had been so long since she'd been outside. How she wished she could breath in fresh air and not the damp murky air in the room? She'd not wanted to dwell on the fact that her dilemma was mostly Gina's fault but now it was impossible to ignore it. She thought about Gina all the time and regretted doing so many things with her. She'd cursed the day they met countless times even though it didn't make her feel better. Liana's mother had came into the room when she was unpacking. "We have to go now," she said. "You'll finish unpacking later." Liana had relunctantly followed her mother and her father drove them to meet the Breya family. Liana's parents had been friends with The Breyas for a long time. After hearing about Gina Breya and how amazing she was, Liana had been curious to meet her though she did not feel in the mood for making friends. She just had to meet her and move on her life. She needed to make
The town was quite small and the three siblings were outside the biggest supermarket in it. They were in a car coming up with a plan as they had been watching the supermarket for three days and they'd mastered the workers' routines. The only problem so far was the skinny girl and her friend who were always patrolling the supermarket. It seemed they were after something in particular and the siblings hadn't figured it out yet."How doesn't anyone in this town notice that these girls are acting weird?" The girl, Kyla asked her brothers."They're quite pretty with innocent faces," Ned, the eldest said from the driver's seat. "If they weren't half as good looking, everyone would think they're creepy. They're also very average in terms of dressing and everything.""I'm going to see what they're up to," Mark said when the girls went inside the supermarket. He got out of the back seat and followed the girls.On entering, he saw the skinny one removing keys
