๐Ÿ’  Chapter 24 ๐Ÿ’ 

Jessica’s POV

I stared at Ryan’s retreating figure dumbfoundedly as we walked away without even stopping for a bit.

What just happened within a few minutes? I still spoke to Ryan some minutes ago but now he’s acting strange.

I’m beginning to get scared because every mafia cartel is always afraid of Yan San (Ryan’s) cartel. Apart from owning the biggest cartel, he kills mercilessly.

If he finds out my real identity, he’s going to kill me without thinking twice and I can’t die just yet. I didn’t even get to fulfill my dreams because of my disobedience.

If only I had listened to Mom that night and didn’t go out, I wouldn’t have been part of a Mafia group.

I hurriedly ran into my room and picked up my phone to call the boss.

“What do you want? Have you gotten rid of Ryan already?” he asked immediately he picked the call

“Gotten rid of Ryan? That wasn’t part of the plan. Besides, Ryan is beginning to investigate me already, it will only take a while for him to discover me” I said

“You can’t leave that place until you complete your mission and if Ryan seems to be getting out of hand, just get rid of him” he said and ended the call

What the Fลฏรงฦ™!! He sent me here and now he thinks I’m no longer useful, so I’m all alone right now? This is incredible!

I don’t know why Ryan was acting strange but I’m sure it has to do with my identity. Sooner or later, he will find out and I will be done for.

The reason why I came here in the first place was because of my mom but now, I don’t even know if she will ever be released because I’m not sure about leaving this place alive.

Ryan’s POV

I drove to Donna’s house speedily and arrived there in no time. I got down from my car and went inside her mansion.

“Look whom we have here, it’s my ex boyfriend” she mocked as soon as she saw me enter the sitting room

“Sorry for the impromptu visit, it’s urgent” I said

“So….what do you want?” she asked staring at me

“I want you to tell me what you saw about Jessica that made you say she was in my mansion for a mission” I said

“Why do you want to listen to that now? You never paid attention when I was telling you right?” she said

“I know and I’m sorry, I wasn’t thinking straight then. Will you please tell me?” I asked

“Well, she told me herself that she was on a mission and I caught her searching your room” she shrugged

“That’s all right?” I asked

“Yes, that’s all” she answered

“Thank you so much, I really appreciate it. I will get going now” I said and stood up

“Ryan” she called making me stop abruptly

“Yes?” I answered

“Nevermind, you can leave” she said after a while

I stared at her one last time and walked out of her mansion, getting into my car. Brianna is the only one at home with Jessica and who knows what Jessica might do to her? Since when did I start caring about Brianna anyway? I guess I just pity her because she’s alone here.

When I arrived home, Jessica was in the sitting room with her phone in her hands and I heaved a sigh of relief.

“Ryan, welcome” she greeted as soon as I entered but I still ignored her

“Why are you suddenly ignoring me? Did I do something wrong? Should I just leave then?” she asked and I stopped in my tracks

“You want to leave?” I asked turning around

“What do you want me to do then? You’ve just been ignoring me so I’m guessing my presence is no longer needed here. It’s not like you’ve ever gotten intimate with me after the first time. You only go to clubs to get pleasure so what am I doing here?” she asked

“Fine, you can leave if you want to” I said and continued walking up the stairs

“Ryan! This really isn’t fair! Before Brianna came into this mansion, you used to like me a lot but now, you’re completely smitten by her right?” she asked tearily

I just sighed instead and didn’t stop walking until I got to Brianna’s room.

I asked her to leave because I wanted to see her reaction. If she had reacted positively, then it means she’s the spy. But now, she didn’t react positively so I can’t conclude rashly. I’ll just wait for Justin’s report.

I opened the door to Brianna’s room and walked in after which I shut the door behind me. She was still sleeping peacefully and looked as innocent as a baby with her pouted lips.

Goodness! How come I’m just seeing how beautiful she is? She’s way beautiful than any model I’ve come across, only that she’s not so curvy.

I leaned closer to her until our faces were just inches apart. I want to feel those soft pink lips on my lips and this is my only chance.

I was moving my face closer when she suddenly opened her eyes. Wtf! Ryan Santiago, you’ve been caught red handed.

I slowly sat up properly and bit my lips gently as she stared at me in shock.

“W…what were you doing?” she stuttered pulling the duvet closer to herself

“I…I….I saw something in your hair and helped you remove it. What were you thinking?” I asked

“Nothing. For how long have you been here?”

“Why do you want to know? You’re awake now so I’m leaving. You don’t need to cook this night and you don’t need to go to work tomorrow, just rest” I said and stood up

“Why are you treating me so nicely? You’ve always hated me but you’re being sweet today, hope you’re not planning anything?” she asked suspiciously

“I’m not! I just realized you’re an innocent girl and I shouldn’t be treating you like that” I answered and left her room

I don’t know what’s wrong with me all of a sudden but I sure don’t like it one bit. What did I mean by saying I shouldn’t be treating her like that?

Besides, all through the time I was with her, my heart kept racing nonstop and that was the reason I had to leave before I do something crazy.

On one hand, Jessica might be a spy and on the other hand, I’m suddenly developing new and strange feelings towards Brianna.

My phone dinged, indicating a notification and when I checked it, I realized it was a message from Justin.

“Boss, we just found out that the Jessica you’re staying with is the spy we’ve been looking for. What should we do next?” the message stated

So Jessica has been the spy all along? She pretended to like me and acted like a sweet innocent girl but all along, it was just a facade?

Wow! This revelation is the biggest shock I’ve ever heard of. Just like Justin said, what should I do next?

Should I just kill her or should I torture her and make her beg for death? She definitely won’t go unscathed, that’s for sure!
