Sia’s face was swollen and numb from the countless slaps, leaving only a burning sensations now.
“Open your eyes Sia, look around you. Things have changed, you’re in my hands, at my mercy. you remain silent or continue making a fuse?” Rose tilted Sia’s chin up with a finger.
But even with her battered face, Sia still looked beautiful, which only further struck a cord in Rose’s heart. If only she had a face like that!
Looking into Rosie’s face green with jealous, Sia finally understood what was going on and laughed. out loud.
“What are you laughing at? You still think it’s funny?”
“Nothing Rose, I’m just pitying you. You obviously hate me so much, yet you still pretend to be me. How did you convince Nathan that you were the one who saved him back then?”
“Stop spewing nonsense. The person that Nathan loves is me, Rose, not you. I have no idea what you’re talking about!” Rose yelled at her face, finally losing her cool now that her secret was exposed.
you dare tell Nathan about this, Sia, it’ll be the end of you. I’m going to kill you myself!
I’ll teach you to keep your mouth shut.” She motioned to her guards. “Go ahead and tie the bit*h to that tombstone.”
At the mention of a tombstone, Sia broke out in a cold sweat. Sia is a scaredy cat, she haven’t gotten. a good look at her surroundings when her cloak was taken off and it was too dark.
“This is kidnapping, Rose!”
Sia struggled, kicking and screaming to free herself when she remember the superstitious believe that whoever slept in a cemetery would wake up crazy.
But none of the guards had a sense of righteousness in them. The things people would do for money.
Despite all her fights, Sia was tied to an eerie looking tombstone. “Let me go! I’ll call the police! Let me go right this second!”
“Go ahead and call the police when you make it through the night. I heard that this particular cemetery is haunted.”
Rose’s business with Sia was done. She believed she made herself clear and clicking her heels on the concrete with swagger, she turned around and disappeared into her Mercedes Benz. The car zoomed past Sia leaving a gust of dust in it’s wake, disappearing into he night.
Back at the mansion, Sebastian glanced at his wristwatch again. It was already after eleven at night when he returned to back home. The lights in the living room were on, and Mr. Greg was standing by the door, awaiting his return.
“Why are you waiting outside, Mr. Greg?”
“Ms Blackwood hasn’t returned yet back, sir. I was worried.”
All the soreness in Sebastian’s body evaporated and was replaced by tension.
“What did you just say?”
“Ms Blackwood has been leaving the mansion after dinner for a couple of days now. But she’s usually
back before 10:30, but it’s already 11 o’clock now and she’s not back yet.”
Sebastian whipped out his phone and dialed Sia’s number, his expression darkening. He had clearly told her to return home early wherever she went. Did he have to tie her to his bed to be reassured?
The phone rang several times but it wasn’t answered. Is she ignoring him?
Sebastian closed his eyes and count to ten, clearing his thoughts. He went through all the places she could be at this hour, and came up a person instead- Bella.
The last time she was late, Sia had mentioned Bella. He quickly notified Alex to investigate Bella and send him her information.
Bella was startled awake from her sleep by a phone call from an unknown number.
“Hello,” She croaked. “Who’s on the line?”
“It’s Sebastian. Is Sia with you?”
Bella sat up straight when she heard the name. “Sia? She’s at the dance music training class. What’s wrong? Hasn’t she returned back yet?”
“Thanks for the information. I’ll handle the rest.”
Hanging up, Sebastian instructed Alex to check the surveillance cameras around of the dance music. studio for the past hour.
At 11pm, most of the people at the studio had left, but there wasn’t a sign of Sia. Sebastian became restless.
After much investigation, at the end, all the clues pointed to the West Mountain Cemetery.
Without the slightest hesitation, Sebastian set out for the West Mountain Cemetery. At the cr*ck of dawn, a black Land Rover sped through the streets weaving through the traffic until it arrived at it’s destination.
Sia might be brave and sassy, but underneath all that, she’s just an 18 year old girl. Which normal girl wouldn’t be scared stranded at the graveyard at night?
“My dear brethren lying six feet underground, I apologize for the disturbance. If you have beef with me, please settle it with Rose. She is the one responsible for my presence here.” Sia whispered to no one in particular.
“I’m just a poor innocent girl. I’ve never committed any crime in the past. All the people I got into fights with deserved it. I do not even start those fight, I was only defending myself.” She cried.
“Wheee are you Sebastian? What’s taking you so long to find me?” Sia lamented just as a strong gust of wind blew up her hair.
