"Who's Adriana?" Mrs Contreras asked.

"I'm sorry. Your daughter looks like someone I know." Miranda said, getting a hold of herself.

She led them in and Ema was dropped on the sofa.

"So Ema looks exactly like this girl you are talking about?" Mrs Contreras quizzed further.

"Yes." Miranda answered, "If I didn't know better. I'd say they are identical twins."

"So do you happen to know where this girl is?"

Miranda choked on what she was about to say. It brought too many unpleasant memories but she just had to spill, "She's dead."

"Oh... How did she die?"

"Now the questions were getting strange. Why did she want to know so much?" Miranda thought.

"She fell off a cliff."

"That's very sad. I'm sorry for asking but I just feel intrigued that someone could look exactly like my daughter, who was she to you?"

Mr Contreras came for his wife and dragged her away from Miranda.

"What are you doing?" He  demanded, trying hard not to be suspicious since Miranda could still see them on the sofa.

"I'm trying to find out if this woman knows anything about..." She turned to Miranda's direction before saying, "Adriana".

Mr Contreras was quite sick of his overbearing wife attitude so he let her have it.

"Nobody suspects anything honey, Don't make them!"

"Whatever you say but we are leaving here early tomorrow."

Mr Contreras nodded knowing his wife was right. If Ema and Adriana were the same person which obviously they must be, They better avoid any place that had a connection with her especially if it could trigger her memories.

"Ok." He acknowledged.

Miranda walked up to the family she just assisted to tell them the latest development.

"I've prepared a room for you to spend the night and I've also informed the police about what happened to you. They'd be coming tomorrow to get the details."

"What time exactly tommorow?" Mrs Contreras quizzed.

"I don't know. Will you be leaving early?"

"Yes."

"Oh...Ok. Well, the maid will show you your rooms."

Mrs Contreras face was white, "Rooms? Aren't we sharing the same room?"

Miranda giggled, "Well we have a lot of room to spare and I figured out You

and followed his wife outside.

Mrs Contreras dropped the keys clutched tightly in her hands when she found the door ajar.

Ema was gone!

"Where is she?" Mrs Contreras asked no one in particular as she rushed in to confirm her suspicion.

Her suspicions were damn right.

Ema wasn't inside.

How did this happen?

Mrs Contreras checked the door to know exactly what went wrong.

God! She didn't even lock it.

Her husband gave her the 'you'll be your own undoing' look.

She hated him for doing this to her.

"Come on. We have to find her before she finds them."

"You need to see her. She looks just Adriana."

"Really?" Rodriguez asked, taking a sip of the orange juice he was given, "So what do you plan to do now?"

"Call me wicked but since I helped them from whoever was after them last night, I plan to use it as leverage to keep their daughter for some time just to help Nathan." Miranda revealed, passing an orange juice to Nathan who was more than happy to get his share.

"Mom, Do you mean Adriana is here?" Nathan asked, a puppy he was.

"Sure son. You'll see her soon." Miranda assured.

Rodriguez could only imagine what a fool he was for sending amateurs to his aid.

They even knocked.

Now...Now, he'd do the job himself.

Rodriguez took a sip of his orange juice waiting expectantly for the said girl to come out already.

"Here she is." Miranda finally said.

Speak of the angel!
