"Hard to get, easy to lose."

No body. It had been taken away. The chalk drawing on the floor told Nathan however where her body had rested.

Ignoring the bright yellow tapes that clearly had no trespassing allowed, Nathan reached the site of the crime.

"Why did you do it?!"

A police man came forward humming lightly to make his presence known to a grieving Nathan.

"I'm sorry for your loss." He expressed.

"Are you?"

"Its my job." The man sincerely made known.

"All I need is some answers Mr Nathan."

What answers could he want?

"If I can be of any help then, sure!"

"Miss Claire mentioned you before she took her life, Did you have a relationship with her perhaps, More than just Friends?"

Nathan banged his hands to the floor hearing such disgusting word tte man spewed.

"Are you insinuating that i had a hand in this?!"

The man jotted down something.

"No Mr Nathan but there has to be a reason why."

The man was right. Claire must have mentioned his name for a reason and he knew why.

"So do you think you know what it could be?"

"No!" Nathan lied, hoping the man would just cut the conversation short.


The man left taking the hint.

"Can i see her body?"

The man stopped in his tracks turning sideways to meet Nathan's eye.

"I'm afraid not Mr Nathan. We are still investigating. it's possible that it was murder."

Nathan did not know why but he really hoped it was Murder, which meant Claire did not go down weak.

Then a thought flashed by.

"Who called the police?" Nathan inquired.

"A passerby who heard the gunshot."

Nathan could immediately smell a rat. He knew Claire knew next to nothing about one and she had expressed hef fear of the moulded weapon.

Why then would she take her life with the very thing she feared, something wasn't right.

His pocket chimed and he reached in to pullout his already damaged phone.

He had saved it before going to Claire's house.

Adriana, Why was she calling?

Nathan picked it up and listened.

"Nathan, we need to talk."

"I'm kinda of busy here coping with My friends death. Nothing you'd understand."

"You don't understand, ." She groaned, "Claire.... She..."

Nathan finally calmed


Adriana could not help but feel he was right. She called him and told him her father's evil deed. Worse, she was even making bargains with him when she...

"You could just shoot me in the skull."

He completed her thoughts exactly. She could just shoot him the skull but she was not her father.

He tortured orphans and took away threats that stood in his way stood in his way to achieve power and let all know he was in control.

Maybe she just wanted to do the right thing but why?

Adraina's phone donged. She checked who was calling.

Her fear. The spy she sent was calling. It meant he had information or was going to tell her what lost cause this was.

"Hello." She formally said, placing the phone on loudspeaker so Nathan could hear.

"You were right. He's in street. A man showed up and he was given an envelope by your father."

The line went dead.

It was official, Her Father was the monster she feared he would be and all monsters needed to be stopped.

"Since I guess we have a deal?" Adriana inquired, not meeting his gaze.

Nathan seemed to be overwhelmed by the thought coming in, To betray his dead best friends memory for the power he lost or die.


It's not like he had a choice.

Adriana thought hard. She was about to go against her father, it was an incomprehensible betrayal.

A small part of her however had somethings to say about it.

Not if you kill this bastard!

The other, What Dad doesn't know won't hurt him.
