THE ONE I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR: Chapter 21 – 30
🌹 CHAPTER 25 🌹
“Excuse me sir, I was told you sent for me” Cassie said to john as she got to the sitting room. “Oh! Yeah, I was gonna send you some errand, but what are you doing right now?” he asked. “Uhmn! I was arranging some of my belongings into my travelling box. I was gonna ask you for permission to take few weeks off work, my mom sent for me and said it’s really important that I show up” she replied
I hope all is well with her, Why the sudden call? He asked. “I tried persuading her to discuss or send whatever it is she wanna say or give me on the phone or through dispatch riders, but she insisted on me coming to her and please sir, I’d love to answer her call this time. It’s been really long since I saw her and she doesn’t call for me just anyhow, she hates to disrupt my daily activities… she replied
Sure I’d let you go, you know our parents should never be taken for granted but I’d let you go after I finish business with everyone of you… john said and called for other employees attention. “I’m so sorry for this emergency meeting. I know I shouldn’t be sorry though, I’m your boss afterall but I gotta respect you all because you have your individual rights. All I need from you is just simple response.
Who among you is a snitch here? I mean who among secretly works for someone? He asked. “Excuse me Cassie, you’ve got a message you haven’t replied to” Matilda said as she came in with her phone in her hand.
You can see we’re in the middle of a discussion so keep whatever you have for he till the end of the meeting… john replied and she remained calm.
Since y’all denied being the odd one among us, then I’m left with no other choice than to let you know I’m aware of your actions. Y’all should turn to the projector… he said and they all turned to see the video being displayed.
What I wanna know is why you’ve been leaving the main house to receive calls at the garden, and i’d love to see your phone… Chris said to Cassandra who was fretting already.
I just do not like disturbing people when I’m on call, so that’s why I go out of the house sometimes… She said trying to hide her fear.
Are you trying to deny the fact that you don’t work for anyone? You’re not he one responsible for all that has been happening to Matilda? He said in a more serious and angry tone.
I don’t know what you’re talking about, why would I be responsible for her misfortunes? She replied and he clicked on another scene that shows how she poisoned the juice she gave Matilda da the night they were leaving for the party.
I know you can’t deny what you’re seeing now. I would’ve told John to help you limit the punishment you’d be given at the court but your lies won’t just allow me to… He said
I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt her. I was only working on the mission I was given and I accepted the mission because the lay was huge and I needed a way of surviving… She pleaded
You don’t look poor, and I’m sure he isn’t the first and only person you’d worked for… John replied
Her boss already asked her to leave the house before she gets caught. I guess that’s why she decided to escape by giving the stupid excuse… Matilda said after showing the message to John and Chris
“Let them in” john said to the gatekeeper through the signal he sent. Make sure you interrogate her properly and she musn’t be granted on bail… He said to the cops before they took her away.
Now that the bug is gone, I hope you all will learn something from everything that has been happening. You can all return to your duties… John said to his remaining employees and they all dispersed.
Few days later, the news of Mr Robert( Matilda’s nightmare) arrest spread all over the internet as it became the talk of the town as soon as it was publised with evidence of his arrest.
OMG! I’m a free bird, like I’ve got no reason to be scared of breathing peacefully again… Matilda said to Anita with enthusiasm
Relax! Why don’t you confirm the news from your boss and others before jubilating? Anita replied, just then a call from Chris came in.
I’m sure you’ve seen the news already, I just wanna know how happy you’re about it and I’ve gotten my answer already, have a nice day… He said as soon as she accepted the call.
I seriously can’t thank you enough. You fought so hard just to see me become happy once again, I’m surprised and happy at the same time. I just hope they’d give him the proper punishment he deserves and do not bother bringing him back to the country… Matilda said to Gabriel as they chatted online
You’re welcome, I just did what I ought to have done and it’s more like saving a whole country because no one knows who is next target is… He replied
I couldn’t laugh when Chris told me he got arrested at the hospital he went to undergo plastic surgery and was arrested just as he was about entering the operation theatre. He must’ve been so desperate to the extent of trying to change his face… She said again
He will be brought back home for proper court arraign… He said
I’d love that too but I’m scared of him escaping again…She replied
“He can’t do that, not anymore, all those working for him and with him got arrested so he’s left with no other option than to surrender he’s been properly monitored” he said
Alright! Talk to you some other time, I gotta study, my exam will be commencing in few days time… She replied
