Stephanie entered the small sitting room and looked around, shaking her head. She had left for some weeks now. She remembered Mr Cameron's wealth and the mansion she had left behind, only to return there. Since she got married to Mr Cameron, he had showered her with so much money, and she had different accounts in her name that contained more than enough money. She did not come back the way she left the house, instead, she was richer this time. Mr Cameron had promised to give her some properties and investments permanently, within the next few months, until he fell sick. She already had two cars during the short time she spent with him, and two drivers. But they were both parked in Mr Cameron's compound.Stephanie was not ready to run after all those wealth now; she was currently concerned about finding Jakes, her husband. She refused to be carried away by Mr Cameron's wealth since she only married him in the first place, to save Jakes. If it meant leaving the wealth to return to Jake
Jakes had been in the darkroom for two weeks now. He had tried everything possible to free himself and escape from the room. The rope used to tie his hands was very thin and tight. From the first day, he was locked up in the room, he was given food once in two days. But for the past three days, he hadn't been served any meal, and he was now very weak and desperate to get himself out of the room. So he began to shout with the little strength he had in him."Get me out of here, you wicked beings! Get me out of here! Get me out of here, because if you don't, I'll set this house on fire. I don't mind dying in the process! So, get me out of here!" None of Mrs Allison's strong men was home at this time, only her maids and servants were around. Get me out of here! Jakes continued to shout as he made sounds in the room; then a servant heard his voice. It was Bob, Mrs Allison's kind servant. Bob was known for his kindness. He quickly put some food on a plate and sneaked it through the door.
"Wow! I'm so excited that Stephanie has agreed to get married to Mr Cameron, and the debts owed by the company have also been paid." Mrs Allison told Michael with a smile on her face.It was Friday evening, and Mrs Allison and Michael had just returned from work. Micheal travelled for a business trip on Thursday morning and returned that same evening. "So it means that if we hadn't taken the violent steps we took, she wouldn't have agreed to marry Mr Cameron," Michael said."You're right son. She had made up her mind to leave the rest of her days suffering. I'm happy I handled her the way I did.""And what about that fool, Jakes? Is he still alive?" Michael asked."Yes, he is. But, we'll make sure we get rid of him without giving Stephanie an idea of our plans. Because, as long as he's still alive, she could just change her mind." Mrs Allison said as Michael nodded in response."Now, I'll make sure Stephanie becomes the CEO of 'The Class of Verity,' since she has helped to reinstate t
Mrs Allison had just returned from work, and she looked very bothered. After putting off her shoes, she leaned against the sofa in the big sitting room looking very tired and exhausted. "The Class of Verity" was going to be sold out in two days, if the outstanding debts were not paid before then. She had a faraway look in her eyes, as she thought of what step to take on the issue. She thought of her strong men: Liam, Hansen, and George, and how she was going to use them in achieving her desires."That bastard, Jakes must be killed today! If he's killed, Stephanie will have no option but to marry Mr Cameron this time." Mrs Allison thought. After thinking about this, she took up her phone and dialled a number. "Liam, you need to come over to my place right now! And you can bring Hansen and George along.""Alright, Boss," Liam replied.While waiting for the three of them, Mrs Allison moved to the dining to have dinner. When she was done with dinner, she walked towards the room where Steph
Jakes felt a little nervous when he saw them, but when he remembered his identity, he summoned the courage to face them."Good day my in-laws." Jakes greeted Mrs Allison and Micheal. "What is good about the day?... Liam! Liam!!" Mrs Allison called angrily. "Yes, Boss!" Liam responded from inside one of the rooms in the house."Come over quickly!"In no time, Liam walked into the sitting room. He looked very huge and tall with a scary look on his face. "This fool here is Stephanie's husband. Lock him up in the darkroom.""What?!" Jakes was surprised at Mrs Allison's instructions."I came here to look for my wife. I was told that she's here, and the next thing you want to do to me is to lock me up. You can't be serious." "I'm more than serious. Liam, what are you staring at? Bundle him up and lock him!" Mrs Allison commanded."Okay, Boss," Liam replied as he rushed towards Jakes and tied his hands. Jakes was surprised at what was happening. "Leave me!" Jakes cried, trying to stop t
"I need to go and see Stephanie," Jakes told himself. It had been one week since he set his eyes on his wife. He had tried to go to the Allisons' place a few days ago, but he received a call from a friend who told him that he saw his wife in a grocery store close to their house. So, Jakes was confident that Stephanie was around, and would return home that day. Now, three days had passed, yet she had not arrived. He later got to know that the person his friend saw at the mall was not his wife; they only had a striking resemblance. Now, he was desperate for his wife's return, so he made up his mind to go and see her. ****Back at the Allison's place, Stephanie was seen lying on the floor inside a small room. She had been battered and maltreated by one of Mrs Allison's strong men. So she felt very weak and exhausted.Stephanie's room was always locked, except when she was going to be tortured; when the maid wanted to serve her food; or when her family members needed to talk to her. It
"Mr Cameron will be here in a short while. Clean up yourself and put on this dress. You must appear your best to him," Mrs Allison said, as she showed Stephanie the expensive gown she had purchased from the city's mall. When Mrs Allison noticed that Stephanie got up from the floor very sluggishly, she said: "I told you to abort that thing in your womb, but you refused. However, it's not too late to do that. Mr Cameron mustn't find out that you are pregnant; it could discourage him from getting married to you.""Mum, I'll go take my bath, but never you call my baby a thing. He's a human being, you know!" Stephanie said angrily, as she stood up and walked into the bathroom to take her bath. She had finished bathing and was wearing the new dress her Mum had bought when she had a sudden knock on the door. She quickly zipped up her dress and looked through the door hole, when she saw a maid carrying a tray of food in her hands. Stephanie opened the door and collected it from her, then she
"You have to submit these documents at " The Legends" first thing this morning. I must get this contract for the company." Micheal told his Secretary. Michael was the Head of Personnel, at "The Class of Verity" and he was desperate to get the contract placed in the market by "The Legends" so that he could climb up to become the CEO at The Class of Verity, "so he sent his secretary to submit a proposal for the company. "Okay, Sir. I'll be on my way now." Linda, Micheal's secretary replied, as she rushed out of the office. ***"Miss Linda, we have filed your company's proposal, until we receive a letter from the company's chosen guarantor," May said.May was "The Legends" General Secretary, and she had just collected the proposal from Linda. She was about to submit it at the MD's office when she found out that no guarantor's letter was submitted alongside. "I am a secretary from 'The Class of Verity'," Linda emphasized. She felt May did not hear her the first time, because every s
