A Story written by MaziOmenuko…

My heart beat was racing fast!
I swallowed hard, I felt something was choking my air path.

What have I gotten myself into? This was a 2-star hotel with no security cameras, what was she reaching for?

What the hell will I do if she turns wild on me with a dangerous weapon?

She brought out my phone which had fallen to her side of the bed and tried handling to me. I couldn’t see what it was initially, so I jerked backwards.

“Take it”, she said.

“Take it and call Emon”.

On seeing the phone, I felt a little bit relaxed. I breathe a sigh of relieve and tried to look calm.

But I was startled. Call her for what? Why does she want Emon to meet her here at her hotel room? What was she planning on doing?

I was still alarmed somehow, watching closely to see if there are more things she could pull out to facilitate the order. She didn’t. Rather, her eyes grew colder and sterner. She looked desperate so desperate that the fear started to crawl back to me.

I had to play it cool. There’s no way she was going to take no for an answer. She must have made some plane B, and may pull it out if I reject this order.

But what’s the worst thing that could happen?

-you don’t want to find out, trust me- says that little voice in my mind.

I needed to leave the room first before making any decision. I was at enemy territory and its not an ideal place to be making bargains.
Never underestimate a desperate woman!

“Call her!”, her cold voice brought me back to reality.

“Calm down Margaret, that might not be the best idea”.
I was trying my best to calm her down and possibly buy some time. So I continued.

“How did you know about me and emon”.

I have imagined all the possible scenarios in my mind. I was just asking for the sake of it. I needed her to calm down.

“Call her and tell her to meet you here!”. She said coldly.

“But she won’t agree to come Margaret. She despises me same way she despises you”.
