Rhianna is sitting on the bed. Waiting for the big hand of the clock to drop at 12. She plans to run away at midnight. She wants to escape her uncle who is a Drug Lord.
They were imprisoned in a place not merely located. She doesn't want to leave her mother and sister but she has to do it for them. She has to save them from the hands of Don Ysmael. She'll think about it afterward how to catch him, the important thing is that she saves her mother and sister first.
When her father died when she was only eighteen years old. Her mother remarried Don Ysmael, and her mother did not know his true identity. When her mother learned of Don Ysmael's identity, they were imprisoned because Don Ysmael thinks that they might complain to the authorities.
So she did nothing when his stepdad imprisoned them in a medium-sized house far away from civilization. She didn’t know where she was going when she ran away. If she can escape or if the guards will catch her.
She tied the concatenated fabric to the bed that she will use to go down to the window. On that side of the window, the guards of the mansion could not see her because it was hidden.
It's almost midnight. She went to the room of her mother and youngest sister Ylona. She opened the door because it wasn’t locked. She went inside.
She regard them because this was the last time she could see their faces. Because she won't know when she will see them again. It is against her will to do it for leaving them but this is the only solution she knew to save them. She couldn’t stop her tears from falling. It ran down her cheeks, and she immediately wiped it with the back of her palm.
She left their room and slowly closed the door again. She went to her room and it was exactly midnight. Hopefully, her plans work now, because this is the only way she can save her mother and sister. Nothing will happen if she cages herself up here in this house.
She gets the tangled fabric and unfurls it in the window. She can't herself from swallowing. What if they catch her? What will Don Ysmael do to her? Come what may, the important is she tried to escape. Perhaps, they won't notice her because usually these hours the guards are sleeping.
She walked towards the window and slowly slide downwards using the dimity that she unfurled. When her feet mourn to the ground she can't help herself from sighing. She feels nervous at those moments.
She treads in the woods. The house surrounds by tall trees. It means the house is in the middle of the forest.
When she noticed that no one sequence to her, she immediately ran. She runs through the forest and she doesn't know what is the end of this. She wishes that in the end, she will see a road or someone who can help her with her situation.
She runs and runs. Even she gets wounds from the plants she sideswipe. It's nothing to her because the important thing is she escaped. She doesn't know how long she ran. Until she decided to rest. She feels thirsty because of prosy running. She sit in a tall tree and leaned her body there.
After a few moments of rest, Rhianna decided to get up and continue running. She just run and run. The wounds caused by the plant she touched were painful. But she doesn't care. Until she saw an exit in the woods. But his body was weakening.
When Rhianna reached the road. She suddenly felt tired, thirsty, and dizzy. She saw the light of a car approaching where she was. She waved her hands so that whoever was driving the car would know her presence. When the car immediately stopped in front of him.
The passenger came out and exposed in front of her is a man who was about six feet tall. Good physique. And with squinty eyes. Her gaze on the man was awakened as he spoke.
"Miss what happened to you?" the man asked Rhianna.
He glared at Rhianna from head to toe. Rhianna was disgusted by what he did so she averted her eyes from him.
"Come on, My co-agent will treat you." the man invited her.
She was still hesitant whether she would board or not. These days, we do not know whether a person can be trusted. Because even if you have known her/him for a long time, she/he will traitor you. Maybe he felt that she was hesitating.
The man took something from his pants pocket. Purse, he took something there and gave it to her. An ID. She picked it up and from the light coming from the moonlight, Rhianna read the man's name.
"Leonardo Estralta Jr." Rhianna pronounced the man's name. There is an Agent written below his name.
"Yes, I'm sorry, my name was followed by my father's name." Leonardo explained.
"There's nothing wrong with your name." Rhianna said.
"Get on board." Leo said and got in the front of the car.
She immediately got in the back of his car. He looked like Rhianna's driver. He immediately started the vehicle. He is an Agent so she can be trusted. He can help Rhianna. He will help her to save her mother and sister.
But what if he's not an Agent? What if he's just pretending? She has no choice. If he would do Rhianna bad. She could do nothing. Maybe that's all she is. Leo took something from his bag. He handed her alcohol and cotton.
"Put alcohol on your wounds to somehow stop the bleeding," Leo said.
Rhianna noticed her wounds with slight bleeding. She took Leo's offer of alcohol and cotton. She put alcohol on the cotton and then rubbed it on her wounds. Rhianna moaned as she felt pain. The man turned to her.
"You alright?" he asked Rhianna.
"Yes, I'm fine. My wound just hurts because it's been exposed to alcohol. Do you have water there? I'm thirsty." Rhianna said.
She is very thirsty because of the long run. Leo took something from his bag, a tumbler with water. Boy Scout? Always ready? He handed it to Rhianna. She took that.
"Thank you." she replied. Maybe, Rhianna can trust him with what he did. What if he's just doing that to get her trust? Hays. Shee would think of that when they reached their destination.
"You look like you came from a long run in the woods. Why are you there?" he asked Rhianna.
"Where are we going?" She did not answer his question. She needs to know where they are going first.
"To my comrades. We have a meeting. Urgent meeting." he answered her. She better answered his question earlier.
"I ran away from my stepdad. He imprisoned me with my mother and sister in a house in the middle of the forest." she answered.
She remembered her mother and sister again. How would they react when they found out that she was no longer at home? She prefers not to say my decision because she doesn’t want to involve them.
"I'm ready to help you. I think you're telling the truth." Leo offered.
She doesn’t have time to dupe. She wants to say it to Leo. However, she decided to keep quiet. In fact, She's indebted to him. This is not the right time for Rhianna to be angry because she needed him to save her mother and sister.
"We're close to Head Quarters." he said.
Rhianna saw in the distance a concrete house. It's just a simple house that you wouldn't think of as Head Quarters. They entered the gate. There were some vehicles already there, probably vehicles of his comrades. When his car got inside the compound, he parked it not far away. She immediately got out of the car. A man with a white complexion and good physique approached them. The man looked at Rhianna.
"Agent Leonardo Estralta Jr. Maybe you can introduce me to the woman who's with you?" the man said to Leo as he got out of the car. Leo did not answer the man's question but Leonardo approached her and took her hand.
"Where's Alexandra, Harold? My companion is wounded and she needs to be treated." he asked the man whose name was Harold.
Then, Harold glared at her. He probably didn’t notice earlier that she had wounds because the place where Leonardo parked the car was dark. They walked inside of the Head Quarters as Harold followed.
"What happened to her?" Harold asked.
"I'll tell it later Harold." Leonardo replied.
When they get inside. She came across a man and a woman who was sitting on a long sofa. They stopped in front of them.
"Alexandra, can you treat her for a moment?" Leonardo asked the woman with curly hair. The woman stood up and looked at her.
"What happened to her, Leo?" Alexandra asked.
"I'll tell everything that happened to her later. Right now, she needs to be treated." Leonardo replied to her. Alexandra nodded.
"Come on Miss." Alexandra led her to a door and opened it.
Rhianna was exposed to two beds that were placed side by side and a cabinet to her right. Alexandra guided her to the bed and she went to the cabinet. She took something there.
Alexandra approached Rhianna and started applying medicine to her wounds. She winced because of the touch of medicine on her wounds. Now, she felt the pain caused by her wounds. She didn't feel it a while ago because her attention was focused on escaping her stepdad plus Leonardo's presence.Rhianna immediately dismissed that matter in her mind, she had to focus on what would she'll do to save her mother and sister. Then, Alexandra put a band-aid on the large wounds. She looked at Alexandra. She is beautiful and has a small face. Alexandra looked at Rhianna and smiled."There, your wounds are okay now. Do you want to come inside? I can't leave you here alone." Alexandra said while keeping the tools and medicine that she used on curing Rhianna's wounds."Is it okay? Am I not bothering you?" Rhianna ask.Before Alexandra could answer her question, there was a knock on the door and it opened. Rhianna saw the man sitting earlier on the sofa who knock and opened the door. Long hair in a po
"You're not allowed, our members must have the capability to handle a gun. And she/he will undergo thorough training." Leonardo contrary.What if she doesn’t know how to hold a weapon or a gun? It will learn. She prefer herself to keep quiet so they wouldn't end up arguing when she insisted on what she wanted.The silence inside the car predominates. She decided to stick her eyes out of the window. The surroundings were still dark, she could hear the wind blowing in the trees. She can't even remember where he found her earlier. She decided to close her eyes to sleep.A shake of her shoulder woke her up. She opened her eyes. Rhianna saw Leonardo who was responsible for waking her up."We are here, at my house." he said and averted his face away from her.He got out of the car and walked to the house. Rhianna decided to get out of the car and followed him to his house. When she got closer to him, he put the key in the doorknob and opened it. He went inside and she followed him.The hous
"I'm sorry, I thought she didn't have a boyfriend. I'm leaving." he said and left in front of Rhianna. She turned to look at Leonardo who was pissed with his arms folded."You shouldn't have professed that to him, the man was embarrassed. He was just being nice to me and he wants to know me." Rhianna replied. Of course, what's wrong if she is acquainted with a man. He looked at her from looking at the man leaving the store."You run away, right? You should be careful with the people you talk to and socialize with. You shouldn't just trust them easily." he answered seriously.Rhianna was stunned. He is right. Why Rhianna didn't think of that? She shouldn’t be talking to anyone. Leo took in her hand the basket she was holding that's containing her purchases."Let's pay for it. So we can leave. I'm going to Head Quarters. We'll do some training." he said and walked towards the Counter. Rhianna followed Leo."Can I come with you?" she asked him.He turned to Rhianna and looked back in the
Chapter 5Alexandra and Harold come out in the Carinderia together with the two guys. Rhianna roamed her gazed in the Carinderia. Everyone is still shocked about what happened."Let's go. We have something to discuss." Leonardo said to Rhianna.Leonardo takes Rhianna's hand and they exited into the Carinderia. Rhianna looked back and she saw Brandon who was behind them. She saw that Brandon was looking at their hands.They reach the parking area where Leo's car was parked. He immediately opens the passenger seat for Rhianna. Rhianna abord to the car. Leo goes to the driver's seat and aboard also. Miracle! He's a gentleman now. Leonardo drove the car and followed the car that Alexandra and Harold were aboard."Why did you do that?" he asked her. She knew what he was talking about. It is what she's done to the guy who has shade."To save you. He's gonna stab you." she answered."But you should not do that, I can manage myself." he defended.She will no longer allow even the rescue he di
Leo doesn't know why he said those words to Rhianna. He sat down on the sofa in the living room and washed her hand over his face.He couldn’t help but admire her for her inherent beauty. White, smooth skin, round eyes, and round face. The first time he saw her, he felt an attraction to her.Especially earlier, when they were at Gigi’s Carenderia as he pointed a gun at the shaded man that he found out that Carlo Sañiego is his name. She suddenly stood up and kicked Carlo Sañiego's hand. He was so worried for her. In fact, she was great. He treats Rhianna like that because it's his way so Rhianna won't notice his attraction towards her.He immediately remembered when they were in Head Quarters and he found her talking with Brandon. He couldn’t help feeling jealous, which he shouldn’t have felt for her. He cleared his mind of the thoughts and decided to take his clothes to her bedroom that he had given to Rhianna.Leo got up from his seat and headed to the bedroom. He was about to knock
"RHIANNA, I want you to be part of our group." Leo said to her as she turned around and faced what she was cooking. She was momentarily taken aback by what he said. Is what she heard correct? Does he want to include her in their group? She immediately turned to Leo. Their eyes met. She suddenly felt awkward."Are you serious? Didn't you say that your member must be good at holding a weapon or a gun?" she stated. She remembers that's what he told her when she asked to be part of their organization."Dianne resigned because she wants to focus on her progeny. So, Agent Jerald is looking for a replacement for her. That is being learned." he said and smiled at her. She's strange about how he treats her. He is becoming heavenly."Thank you, Leo. It's my pleasure to be part of your group." She said and turned her attention back to cooking. The pancakes she cooked looked good. "You just have to go through thorough training. As an agent, the danger is in your life. So, be careful because no
"Who's the mastermind of this transaction?" Leo asked Carlo Sañiego who was now sitting while facing them. Next to him was the skinny man who looked terrified.They were in the room where there is a small cell on the side where the two slept last night. There is a table of the right size in front of Carlo Sañiego. Leo was on its side and standing. Brandon, Faith, and Alexandra sat in the chair at the table facing Carlo Sañiego while Rhianna is on one side and listening to them talk."Why would I say that? I don't want to hurt my family." he said firmly. Brandon stood up and approached Carlo."If you unite with us. Tell us where your wife and children are and we will rescue them. We will make sure that they will be safe in our care." Brandon reassuringly said."Don Ysmael, he is the leader. I am just being ordered. I heard the conversation of those who ordered me. If I don't obey and I report, my children and my wife will get hurt. I have no choice because I am also in need. Save my
Then, they take Mrs. Sañiego to a safe place where only agents know. They immediately returned to Head Quarters for training. It was three o'clock in the afternoon when they arrived.When she got out of the car, Leo and Rhianna immediately went to the back of the Head Quarters where the training was being held. Hanging in the middle is a piece of paper with a person drawn on it. Training has not yet begun.Then, they take Mrs. Sañiego to a safe place where only agents know.

Alexandra invited her and took her hand to the side where Faith was sitting. She left Leo talking to Harold. They sat in the vacant chair next
