” Sure,” Cassie smiled
” Cassandra! Terri called, surprised to see her.
” Uncle! She said shocked. He drag her out until they stopped outside.

” Am sorry uncle..,”
” Let meet at home,” he said angrily then left.
” Oh no, it bursted,” she said sadly.
“For how long has this been going on? Mr Vicente, her dad asked her.
“For over a month now,” Cassie answered with her head down.

“Being a bar dancer for over a month, how many guys have harass you, how many have try to rappe you or let me say how many have you slept with,” he yelled at her.

” Dad! Am only doing that to gather enough money for college and nothing else, am not a pro$titute and I will never be one,” she said, her eyes clouded with tears.

” We’ve talked about that Cassie and am doing all I can to see you go back to school..
“I know that and I appreciate that but..

” No buts.. Cassandra, am so disappointed in you,” he said.
” If i haven’t went there to see one of my costumer then we wouldn’t have known this.

Cassie we are worried because you’re just too young for all these,” Terri said.
” It’s Okay.. I understand,” she said before walking to her room.

Days later..
Cassandra purchase the form and was preparing for her exams.

“Cassie,” her dad sat down opposite to her.
” You’re preparing greatly for your exams indeed,” he said, seeing how she always sleep late just to make sure she cover some topics by reading them.

“Sure dad, I had too and that’s the reason why I had to quit everything and prepare well for the exams,”
” Am sorry Cassie! I failed as a father for not being able to provide for you..

“You don’t have to say that. You and uncle have been the best ever since mom died and i know you as my parents, sadly grandma isn’t here to see her little Cassie again,”

” sure! Just that the world out there is too dangerous and evil, it’s not like your high school so always be careful. And am always right here to support you,”

“Thanks dad but what about the modeling stuff I told you about. She’s hoping I would get back to her soon,”

” You don’t know her Cassie, you don’t even know if she’s right about what she told you. You’re too young for that and I don’t want you to get exposed to such things. Focus on your dreams for now, ” he said.

“It’s okay dad,” she nodded.
“Tomas! Cassie called surprised to see him. It’s been a while they saw each other because he travel. Tomas is her senior cousin brother.

“How is work? She asked, then offered him a chill water.
” Nothing is going on well Cassie, even in my political career,” he said with a frown face.

” And what about the promises a lot of people made to you?
“It’s all fake. Am angry and frustrated at the same time,”
” I told you already especially about Kendall he’s just using you because til now he haven’t even helped you get any tangible position.

Can’t you see you’ve changed a lot Tomas, remember it was because of your greediness his former driver Harris was klled with his family,” she reminded him.

She still can’t forgot what happened even thou she was just a kid that time but she could remember what happened how their farmlands was destroyed by Senator Kendall and that even lead to their grandma having heart attack which resulted I to her dead.

She remembered how they pleaded with Harris his former driver to help them out by planting a camera in his room and office inorder to have evidence to pull him down once and for all, he agreed to help them out of pity but the only news they later heard was that they man was de.ath with all of his family in a fire accident, they suspected Senator Kendall has a hand in it and wonder if he actually know Harris was no longer loyal to him.

But it was after few months Tomas confess to them that he was the one that rant Harris out because Kendall has promised him money.

“That poor man died in vain and it affected his family because they were innocent and it all because of your selfish reason Tomas. At some point you’re the betrayer and spy of our enemy and til now we have no peace because that man is still alive,”

” I have learnt my lesson the hard way Cassie and I hope Mr. Harris will forgive me wherever he is and that the justice we all truly deserve here in the province will be served someday…
