Chapter 25: pick an option
“sir, do you know who might actually be behind this?” The inspector asked me and I shook my head slightly. I knew I had a lot of enemies but none ever dared come to my house, they stayed far and could attack me anywhere and anytime but not my house. It was surprising that someone had entered into my house and by passed all the security and left with her without a trace.
“Did she have any enemies?” He asked and I turned to Samantha. I knew they were both enemies but there was no way Sam would have done something like this, she was incapable of hurting her that way.
“Who is she, is she her enemy?” He asked when he followed my gaze. I shook my head again and he sighed.
“Would you mind if we ask her some questions?” He asked again and I waved my hands at them giving him the go ahead to do what ever he wanted.
He got up from the couch he sat and walked towards Samantha.
“Who might you be ma’am?” He asked and my head jerked at their direction. Pain soared in my heart when she stole a glance at me and looked away immediately. It was difficult to explain the situation, I could not even think of how I would introduce her as the woman I loved when I was already married to someone else.
“I am a friend” she said with bitterness, I felt and heard the pain in her voice as she called herself my friend.
“A friend to his wife or Mr Chase here?” He asked again.
“Mr Chase” she replied and wrapped her arms across her chest protectively.
“Did you have a conducive relationship with his wife?”
“No…uhmmmm” she stuttered and I couldn’t help but stare at her. Something was wrong, I could sense it.
“Why?” The inspector asked and moved closer to her like a predator about to devour his prey.
“Nothing we just don’t relate. So I give her space and she gives me my space too” she added and I breathed in relieved.
“When was the last time you saw her?” The questions were beginning to cross some boundaries that should be kept away from them.
“When she walked out of the master’s bedroom” she replied.
“I don’t think your question here will help save her would it now?” I interrupted him before he could ask more questions.
“We need to be sure someone from your household didn’t do this sir” he replied and I groaned.
“No… no one would dare, just go look for her” I explained and ended the question section as quickly as possible.
He bowed his head and turned to the door without saying another word while a security guard ran to me immediately.
“Lots of reporters are outside asking for some information” he explained and I groaned loudly. The headache I was feeling already increased by a thousand and I placed my hands on my head as a way to ward of the nagging pain.
“Are you alright sweet?” Samantha came closer and sat beside me. But how could I be fine when so many things were going wrong at the same time.
“Go talk to the press. Tell them anything and everything that happened last night but do not tell them that she isn’t here” I said and she stiffened at where she sat.
“You want me to shield her” she said sadly. I could tell she didn’t want to shield her, to defend her as my wife was hurtful but I didn’t want to face the press. Without saying a word, she walked away and went outside while I went back upstairs to get myself some painkillers.
I went out grudgingly and everywhere stung of blood and dry blood, it turned my stomach and I almost threw up but I didn’t want to do that in front of so many people. Outside was messy and it was still being cleaned up while the cops looked around, searching for something that might be useful to them in their search for Genesis, it made me grin inwardly knowing my plans were working
It took a long time to get to the gate, knowing it was further away from the house but when I actually got there, reporters started taking pictures of me like they always did. I smiled a faint smile and hated what I was about to do.
