✨Episode 32✨

Andrian’s POV

Skylar opened her eyes after I apologised and I called out her name excitedly but almost immediately, I comported myself and wore a cold look on.

I’m really happy that she has finally waken up but it still doesn’t mean I should scream like that. I’m not even supposed to show it so she won’t start feeling on top of the word.

“You’re so dumb Andrian” I cussed myself inwardly before raising my head to stare at her

“How are you feeling?” I asked calmly

“I’m fine” she answered in a barely audible voice

“Alright. I will be leaving now, I only came to do something and I decided to check up on you. Do you need anything?”

I mentally applauded myself for my smooth lies. Well done Andrian, you deserve an accolade for the lie you just told now

“No” she answered after giving me a long stare. I just hope she didn’t hear me apologise befkre she wake up

“Okay, bye” I said and left the ward

I went back to the company to prepare the contract I will be signing with Skylar. I need to be fast with it before it’s to late.

That reminds me! I haven’t dealt with Mira yet. Why haven’t the investigators called me yet? Almost immediately, their call came in. Wow!

“Good day sir, sorry for not calling you earlier”

“Alright. So did you find anything?”

“Yes sir. Mira confessed that ma’am Zoey asked her to poison Skylar”

“What? That’s absurd! Torture her properly.”

“We’ve tortured her sir and that’s the only name she has been screaming”

“Okay, thanks for your time” I said and ended the call not wanting to hear any other thing

The Zoey I know can’t do something like this so how come? (Sighs)

Mira’s POV

I smiled inwardly to myself. Good job Mira, Leah will be so proud of you.

I lied to the investigators that Zoey was the one that asked me to poison Skylar which is a big lie.

I intentionally did that to implicate Khloe so she won’t stand a chance to date Andrian. I know Leah wants to date Andrian so I just pulled that little trick to help her.

Andrian won’t trust Zoey anymore once he hears this. Besides, Skylar is going to die because there’s no what she will survive that deadly poison and then Zoey will be framed for murder.

Leah will step into the picture and it will be a happy ending for she and Andrian. Perfect, right? I smiled evilly.

Skylar’s POV

After Andrian left, I ate breakfast before taking my bath. After bathing, I lay on the bed staring at the ceiling.

Once I leave this hospital, I don’t know what will happen out there. Has Mira being caught?

Even if she has been caught, it doesn’t mean everything is fine. There is definitely a Mastermind behind that poison and once that person isn’t found, I’m not safe yet.

I sighed tiredly as I stared at the ceiling in thoughts. When my parents were alive, we were rich.

Dad had a big company while Mom owned a restaurant but when they died, it was as if we were born as paupers.

Dad’s uncle took away the company from us and mom’s restaurant was sold. Everyone abandoned us and I almost gave up but Ella kept me going.

Why do people want me dead? Just why?

I slept off with that thought in my head. When I woke up, it was evening already. Wow! Did I sleep that long?

I was about sitting up on the bed when Audrey came in.

“Ohh…. Skylar, what have they done to you?” she asked crying already

“I’m fine Audrey”

“No, you’re not fine. I think you should stop working in Andrian’s company because ever since you started working there, it has been from one problem to the other”

“I can’t stop working there, at least for now. How do you want I and Ella to survive?”

“You will definitely survive and I will also help you in the little way I can”

“No, you’ve done enough already. Don’t worry about I and Skylar”

“Okay then… Since that what you want. Make sure you get well soon”

“I will. Thanks”

“I brought these for you” she said giving me a bag

I checked what was inside and found different fruits in it. Thanks Audrey

“Anytime. I will be leaving now”she said standing up

“I’m going to miss you” I said like a baby with pouted lips

“Me too. Just make sure you take care of yourself and be fine for me, okay?”

“Alright. Thanks for coming”

“Don’t mention. Bye” she waved at me and left

I’m all alone once again but I believe everything will be fine.

Zoey’s POV

I received word from Andrian’s secretary that he wants to see me. I’m kinda happy though but at the same time, it’s strange.

Ever since I started working here, Andrian has never called for me so you won’t blame me for being nervous.

Whatever it is, I just hope everything turns out fine.

I got to his office and his secretary signalled me to go in without me saying anything. Okay, this is what I call weird!

I twisted the door knob and it gave way immediately. I entered the office without wasting time.

“You sent for me Andrian” I said staring down at my feet

He kept quiet for a long time before finally breaking the silence with something I don’t even understand.

“Why did you do it Zoey?” he asked making me confused

“Do what?”

“Don’t play games with me, you know what I’m talking about” he said making me roll my eyes

“I was busy when you called Andrian. If you want to play a prank, maybe you should wait till we close”

“Do you think I’m joking? Fine. If you want to keep pretending, I will explain better. Why did you try to kill Skylar?” he asked leaving me gobsmacked

“Now that’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Are you dreaming Andrian? Why will I try to kill Skylar?” I scoffed

“I’m not joking Zoey. The person you sent already confessed”

“Fine. Take me to the person so he / she can repeat it in my presence” I said angrily

“Alright then”

He called his secretary and asked her to take me to the person. Looks like he really means business but who could have tried to frame me for murder?

Well, there’s only one way to find out!

✨Episode 33✨

Zoey’s POV

I followed the secretary and we kept walking until we finally got to a door.

“The culprit is in there so you can go see her, I will be leaving now” the secretary said facing me

“Alright, thank you”

I took a deep breath to calm myself before going inside. I got in and saw the place looking unkempt, I had to cover my nose with my handkerchief.

I walked forward little and saw a small room that was built like a cell. There was a lady inside. So the culprit is a female?

“Hello?” I called making her raise her head

“Hi Zoey, have you finally decided to come and set me free?”

“What are you talking about?” I asked in confusion

“What do you mean what am I talking about? Didn’t you ask me to poison Skylar for you because you really hate how she’s trying to take your place in Andrian’s heart?” she said leaving me gobsmacked

Never in my life have I come across a liar like her. She’s saying the lie smoothly and I’m actually confused myself if I actually sent her or not.

“Who the hell asked you to frame me of attempted murder?” I yelled almost in tears

There are marks on her body, marks of how she has been beaten. So she was tortured this much and still has the guts to lie? Is she even human?

“So this is how humans are? You sent me on a mission, I get caught and then boom, we’ve never met before. I should have known but sadly it’s too late now” she said again and I felt like strangling her to death

I had to take a sit because I felt really weak.

“Please…..just tell me who the culprit is, don’t frame me for something I didn’t do, please” I pleaded already in tears

“Awwn…. and she looks really pitiful. Sadly, that won’t change my mind one bit. You’re not going to be killed so don’t worry.

My only aim is to make Andrian hate you, that’s all so just endure a little more” she said with a smug smile and all I could do was cry

If I had even recorded what she said just now, it would have helped me a bit but sadly I didn’t record it.

I stood up dejectedly after drying my tears and left the room. I hadn’t walked for long when I suddenly felt dizzy and fainted.

Leah’s POV

I smiled satisfactorily at what one of my men just told me. Mira actually framed Khloe as the person that sent her to poison Skylar and I couldn’t be happier.

Hmm! Looks like she’s more useful than I thought. I should probably find a way to get her out of where Andrian kept her since she has helped me get rid of Skylar and Khloe at the same time.

It’s finally time for me to step into the picture and make Andrian mine.

Skylar’s POV

The doctor said I can’t be discharged now because my system is still really weak and it’s actually a miracle that I’m still alive.

I’ve now become a regular patient in the hospital. When exactly is this going to end? Just when?

I don’t even have time for Ella like before. Until now, I don’t know if she was allowed to do her exam or not.

I’m just tired of everything. Maybe working with Andrian is a bad idea but I still think there’s a little protection because I work for him.

If not for him, Mason would have probably kidnapped Ella and use it against me but that is out of the way.

There’s no other weakness I have apart from Ella so for now I’m still safe. I just hope I get out of here alive.

I won’t trust easily and I will be a different Skylar from the one everybody knows. I’m becoming too soft hearted lately and it has to stop now.

Andrian’s POV

I watched as Zoey cried while talking to Mira. I’m utterly confused right now!

Am I supposed to believe Zoey that is my childhood friend and someone I trust not being capable of trying to commit murder or Mira that has been greatly tortured?

I sighed tiredly and stood up from my chair.

“Lock my office, I will be leaving” I said to my secretary and left without waiting to hear whatever she has to say.

I got into my car and drove to Micheal’s mansion.

“Wow! What is wrong with you Andrian? You look miserable” Micheal explained handing a glass of water to me

“Thanks” I said and sipped the water

“Are you sure you’re okay Andrian? You just said “thanks” to me” he said air quoting the thanks

“Yeah. I guess the problem I have at hand is beyond me” I said laying on the couch

“Wow! That’s a first! So what’s going on with the great Andrian?” he said teasingly

“I don’t have time for jokes Michael” I groaned

“Okay, sorry. So what happened?”

“Well, I found the culprit that poisoned Skylar and after being tortured for hours, she confessed Zoey sent her”

“You’ve got to be kidding me. Are you serious?”

“Am I laughing?” I countered extremely frustrated with his act

“You probably didn’t hear her clearly, Zoey would never do that”

“That’s what I thought too, but you never know what a lady is capable of doing just to get what she wants”

“Really? Andrian? Zoey is your childhood friend and you still don’t know what she’s capable of doing?” he said shocked

“I know what she’s capable of doing but do I just ignore the allegation made against her?”

“No. Torture that culprit until she says the truth because what she told you is nothing but a lie”

“I’ve heard you. Can I sleep now?”

“Sure! Suit yourself! But I just hope you don’t make a mistake you will regret for the rest of your life” he concluded before walking away

Mason’s POV

I listened with rapt attention to what my guards were saying. They said Skylar is currently lying at the hospital and she’s at a point between life and death.

Who is always making an attempt on her life? Did she offend anyone or is she owing anyone? Why can’t they just let her be?

Even if they don’t want to leave her alone, they should at least wait for me to have a taste of her first.

If not for this stupid contract, I’m sure I would have had my way with her but I can’t leave my company just because of a Ɓîtçh.

A call came into my phone almost immediately.

“Good day. The offer I gave you is still valid. Usually, I don’t give you an offer twice but I will make an exception for you.

I know you’re always busy so I will make it tomorrow. Let’s meet at the restaurant down the street of your company. Bye” she said and ended the call

Like seriously? Who the hell is this imbecile that is disturbing me? I will have to meet the person tomorrow and give her a piece of my mind because I have no time for rubbish like this when I have an important contract at hand.
