Haunted by my Past Mistake….Episode 70
Haunted by my Past Mistake….
“Who found me? How did they get me here?” James still couldn’t lay his fingers on it.
“I think it was Chief Jacob. I don’t know the full detail.” The fact that his fiancée had been kidnapped had not fully registered on his brain. “She really was kidnapped? It’s hard to believe.”
“I don’t know how to tell her parents and brothers. I just don’t know how to. It’s so confusing.”
“We’d do something about it. I will help you out.” Doctor Caleb resumed his seat and kept thinking on how to find Abigail and get James out of the mess he was in.
“Why don’t we inform the cops? They’ll start investigating soon.”
“No, no, no.” James protested. “I have a better idea. Please hand me your cell phone.”
Doctor Caleb willingly gave it to him. James collected it happily and scrolled through the contact list. In no time, the cell was on his left ear. He waited for the call to be answered and for a response.
“Doctor Caleb,” a masculine voice called excitedly over the phone. “Its so nice of you to call.”
James smiled on hearing his voice. The voice of his childhood buddy. He was still the same, he could tell from the voice.
“Detective Joshua, its been a long time. How are you faring over there?”
Doctor Caleb grinned widely on hearing the name – Joshua. Now, he knew James idea.
“No. This isn’t my doctor’s voice,” there was silence for a while. “Oh, yeah! Its my boss, the only heir to the Benjamin’s. James Benjamin, How are you?”
James smiled gleefully. It seemed his problems where starting to disappear. “Well, I’m kinda okay. I’ll get straight to the point. I need your help-”
Doctor Caleb snatched the phone from James, taking him by surprise. “We need your help. Get to New York as fast as you can. We really need you man.” He tapped the red button when he finished pleading. He had gotten his friend’s attention. He knew he’d return to New York in a day or two. Doctor Caleb smiled to himself.
James stared at him, visibly upset, “What was that for?”
“He’ll be here soon. His curiosity and concern will drive him down here.”
“Oh,” It was James turn to smile. “Smart doctor.”
Victoria nodded, showing gratitude to the nurse that had directed her to the bathroom. She turned and swiftly walked to James’s room. After having a refreshing bath, she was going to dress seductively and have James drool all over her. The time in the world belonged to her to get him, but she was going to use them wisely and make him need and only want her for the rest of his life. She smiled to herself as she continued walking to meet him. She was so much enjoying her plans being played in her mind. She felt she had won, she had succeeded. She hadn’t smiled this much, neither had she felt this happy in days.
As the door neared her, she saw James and the doctor discussing. He was still here?, she wondered. What were they talking about? Her interest was aroused. She tiptoed to the door and positioned her right ear to the door, to catch everything being said by the duo.
“Doctor, I think there’s a surveillance camera at that house,” James blurted out with a look of uncertainty.
“What?” Doctor Caleb responded. He was taken unawares by James sudden outburst.
James tried to think harder, “Did I say one? There should be lots of them.”
“James, calm down. Let it out, one at a time. Breathe, breathe.”
He took a deep a deep breath in and out. “That was my third time of being there. I noticed that there are cameras placed for observation. They are very tiny and not easily seen. I doubt Abigail would know of them. But I had caught a glimpse of them once or twice.”
“Hmm. If the cameras are really there, we need to get the tapes and see who is behind this whole scheme,” Doctor replied, thoughtfully.
“Yes, real fast. I need to find my princess, I really need to save her.”
“God!!!” Victoria was enraged. She was vitriolic. “James remembers, he knows everything, but he pretended not to. He’s a betrayer. He had been deceiving me.”
Unable to control her emotions, she pushed the door open, violently and made her presence known by not the doctor and patient. She walked with heavy steps.
“What are you doing here?” Doctor Caleb questioned.
Both he and James were startled by her rude entry.
She glared at Doctor Caleb. “I came to get my things,” she threw a cold look at James and proceeded to pick up her things.
They watched her in silence.
“Have a great day,” she wished them halfheartedly and made to leave. She slammed the door behind her.
“I don’t trust her one bit.”Doctor Caleb muttered.
Lets see how things plays out. Will it be negative or positive for James?
