" Evil lurks in the walls you conceal."

Damn! Fear gripped  Adriana. Had her cover been blown?

Her father would be so disappointed with her. She needed to act quick but first she needed to get dressed.

She had made up her mind not to go out of the room until she had gotten her answer.

Adriana went to Nathan's room hoping to find what she needed to hold on to if indeed she was revealed or even if she had to flee.

She was really regretting he decision now.

She slipped into a pair of new undies which Nathan had made sure he bought for her.

That man just disgusted her!

She reached for her luggage which was stuffed inside Nathan's wardrobe and brought out a phone she had concealed inside the bag.

She dialled a number and placed the phone to her ear.

"Hello My princess."

Her father's voice calmed a bit.

"There's a problem father!"

Her tone was serious and the man on the line knew something had gone terribly wrong.

"Did he find you out?"

"No! I don't think so but someone has and tge person is trying to get to me. I found a note with my name on it."

Her father cackled.

"No need to worry, even if he finds out, you're already married. What you need to do now is to focus on the mission. Let the blackmail keep wasting his/her time. You...get the job done!"

"I won't disappoint you father."

He did not reply. The line just went dead.

Adriana tossed her phone to the bed and contemplated on how to make her next move.

She had wanted to follow Plan A before but maybe she would have to go for Plan B. The blackmailer was making things quiet hard for her.

Fuck! Adriana moved away the wet hair sticking on her face. She was in between. Maybe she'd just do both.

The door opened and Adriana turned to see who the intruder was.

Her mother. She seemed distant and her eyes examined the room cautiously like someone was watching.

"What mother? You look like you've seen a ghost."

Mrs Romero walked up to her daughter and pointed a finger in her face then spoked in a hushed whisper, "I warned you! They'll find you out now."

For all Adriana could see, her mother was being paranoid. She could handle the worst of blackmails, that was why she was COO after all.

"Mom you're being childish. Just tell me wh

e his paperworks... So I want you to get him to sign this."

Claire watched Adriana shove a paper into her arms.

Claire lifted the paper in her sweaty hands to take a look on what was written there. It made her sick.

"You want Nathan's company!" She erupted." And you think I'm going to assist you on destroying my friend!"

Claire was still ranting when Claire played to her hearing a recording.

"Aunty...Help! Help!"

The recording went silent and Bianca spoke, "I think you know who that is. It would be a shame if something just happened to her."

Claire fell silent, trying to build up confident to even utter something.

"If you hurt my niece..."

"Nah! There will be no hurting if you do as we say and with no slip ups."

Adriana's voice was authoritative.

Claire was trapped. She dared not report to the police if she wanted her Niece safety. Her mind reeled on several ways this deal she was forced in could end up im but nothing was beyond her niece safety, he was blood after all.

"So what do you say, Deal or no deal?" Adriana quizzed, one hand on her phone in anticipation to give Claire's Niece abductors the next step to take.

Say No! Say No! Claire's conscience screamed.

"Deal!"

"Smart choice."

Claire had to ask, why was she doing this if she was a COO in another prestigious Enterprise but she best kept her mouth shut.

She latched on to the paper that would be either her Niece' death or her friend's destruction.

In the end, blood is thicker than water.
