Chapter 27

Beck Oliver’s POV

I had slept off for a few hours while Dickson kept driving. He woke me up at night and offered me a beef sandwich. I took it and thanked him

Me: where are we now?

Dickson: we just left California boy. But where exactly are you headed?

I didn’t reply because I didn’t have the answer.

He looked at me intently before facing the road

Dickson : are you running away?

I didn’t answer

Dickson : just know life is rough out there. Especially when you’re on your own. Be careful kid

Me: thanks Dickson

I finished off the sandwich and drank the water he kept for me

Dickson : we’ll pull over soon. So we can grab a drink

I leaned on the seat and looked through the window. I remembered Tori. My Tori. My sister who I had sex with. My girlfriend who died because she found out I’m her brother

This guilt is too much for me to take in. I just want to leave. I don’t want to be reminded of Tori. I don’t want to have her memories stuck in my head

I want to forget every damn thing I knew about America.

I covered my face and determined to let go of the past

Mrs Oliver’s POV

Andre came back without Beck

Me: where is he?

Andre: I lost sight of him

Me: where could he have gone? Home?

Me: I don’t think so. He’ll come back, I’m sure

He walked over to the red-haired girl and she hugged him crying. I sighed and fanned myself with my hands. I’m suddenly feeling hot.

Maybe I should go home since there’s nothing for me to do here. And I better call Beck

I walked outside the hospital and saw Mark with Tori’s friend. I walked towards them and immediately she saw me, she stopped talking and stared at me.

I don’t like this girl. She has guts

Stupid guts.

Mark looked back at me

Me: Mark. I need to go home and shower. I’ll be back later

He rubbed the back of his neck. That was a sign that he was stressed out too

Me: Mark you need to rest

He sighed and turned to the girl

Mark: we’ll see tomorrow okay

The girl nodded and walked off

Mark: I’ll drop you off

I nodded and followed him to his car. I entered and he drove out of the hospital

Me: you look so tired

Mark: I should be

Me: it’s not good for you

Mark: I have no choice

Me: don’t worry. Everything happens for a reason

Mark : and there is a reason for my daughter to die?

Me: she doesn’t deserve death

Mark sighed and rubbed his hand then placed his hand on his lap. I looked at it, sighed and placed my hand on it then squeezed it lightly

Me: just know you have me. I’ll stand by you and be of help in any way. And also Beck, you still have Beck.

He cracked a smile.

Mark : thanks… Monika

I was happy when he didn’t remove his hand from mine. I hope he becomes comfortable with me again

When he came to my house, I tried to lure him to come inside

Me: why don’t you come in. Take a cold drink before heading home

Mark: no. I’m okay. Thanks

Me:no I insist. You can’t drive all the way home with a heavy heart. You need to loosen a bit

I rubbed his shoulder and touched his cheek

Mark: you haven’t changed a bit. You’re still Monika

Me: of course I haven’t changed. Not one bit

He smirked and sighed. He must be really tired to keep sighing like this

Mark : I have to go. I’ll see you later

He started the car and waited for me to go out of the car. I didn’t have a choice. He really wants to go home.

I came out of the car

Me: be careful

Mark: I will

He drove off and I watched as the car went out of sight. I entered the house and showered then ordered a bottle of champagne to celebrate my upcoming success.

I’m already on the road to success. I can’t wait to get Mark back. I’ve always regretted letting him go

And it’s high time I start bearing Vega. The one I always wanted

To hell with Oliver

Jade West POV

Just as I was about telling him that his daughter is alive, the murderer showed up. I stopped talking and stared at her. Mr Vega looked back and I could see she had eyes for him.

Is that why she wanted Tori out of the way? So she’ll be able to have her dad.

I rolled my eyes

Mr Vega : I’ll see you tomorrow okay?

I nodded and walked away.

After he drove her out, Andre and Cat came out. I called Cat’s grandmother and she came to pick her.

I think Trina drove off with her own car

I was left with Andre

Me: Andre, what really happened at Beck’s house? I know you weren’t there but Beck must have told you

He sighed

Andre: I’m only telling you this because I trust you. You won’t tell a soul

Me: thank God you trust me in that aspect

I crossed my eyes and met eyes with him. Ready to know how Tori got hit by a car on a road when she’s supposed to be in her own car and not crossing a road

Andre: Beck and Tori.. are siblings

I raised a questioning brow

Andre: their parents had an affair years ago in Canada. Beck’s mom got pregnant for Tori’s dad. He asked her to abort it and she didn’t. That’s how they became siblings

I dropped my hands

Me: oh my God

Andre: after their parents told them. Tori screamed and ran out of the house. She ran into the road and a car hit her

My mouth dropped open. I was speechless.

Beck and Tori are siblings. Those two love birds?

Me: I… I can’t believe this

Andre: worst… They already..

He didn’t complete it

Me: don’t tell me they already..

He nodded and I hit my hand on my forehead.

How will Tori live with that guilt?

Me: and Mrs Oliver even wants Mr Vega

Andre: you noticed that too?

I nodded

Andre: I feel she’s the one who actually wants Tori’s father. She has always been after money. And when she doesn’t get it, she becomes the worst drinker in town

I sighed. That lady is worst than Lucifer himself. She’s just after money

Me: where’s Beck?

Andre: he ran off and I can’t find him yet

I swallowed a lump

Me: I’ll… I’ll just go now. I’ll see you later

He nodded and I walked few steps then turned back

Me: uhm are you gonna go home now?

Andre: yeah

Me: I’ll drop you off

He nodded and followed me

Mark Vega’s POV

I showered and gulped down glasses of water. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t even think of food.

When I passed through the hallway, I saw Tori’s door.

So my baby girl isn’t going to open that door and hold unto my arm, begging me not to stay in Chicago for long.

She’s not going to gulp down my drink and hand me the empty glass.

She’s not going to shout ‘dad’ while running down the stairs just to show me a video from her phone

After thinking all these things, I smashed my glass on the wall. I huffed out hot air and placed my hands on the dinning chair for support.

I called on a maid to get the shattered glass away.

I headed outside, it was already late. I was surprised that no one called me to console me. The news should have gone viral already

The press should be outside the gate already.

Just as I thought of the press, the gate opened and a car flashed in its light. I thought it was actually the press but it was just Trina who came back home

She rushed up to me

Trina: dad Tori’s not dead!

Me: what?

Trina: she’s alive. She’s doing fine

Me: I don’t understand

She dragged my hand and ran towards my car

Trina: I saw her myself. She’s in a different ward. Tori’s not dead

I quickly entered the car and drove to the hospital without Trina. Though she entered hers and followed me

When I got to the hospital, I quickly ran and asked the doctor in charge what was going on

Doctor: your daughter is doing fine. You can go and see her if you want.

Me: but how is that…

Trina: dad

She came and dragged my hand again, pulling me through different hallways until we got to a door. She opened it and I saw Tori, lying down peacefully. She had bandages all over her but she was breathing fine. Jade and Cat were sitting on the bed

Me: Tori

I rushed inside and stood by her bed. She was truly breathing. I began to laugh, Trina joined me. Cat took over, Jade just chuckled.

But in no time, we all were laughing so hard.

I was happy. We all were. But I needed explanation.

Me: how did this happen?

Cat: long story

Trina: dad, you really need to know.

She tapped my arm

A nurse came in

Cat: hi Tasha!

Cat waved her

Tasha: hi Cat

She turned to me and smiled

Tasha: Mr Vega, it’s nice to meet you

I nodded

Me: please how did Tori come back? I need to know

She smiled

Jade: let’s talk outside

Trina: can I come along

Jade: no!

Cat: come here Trina. Jade is so mean

Trina went over to her and Jade shook her head and we left the room.

Well they explained everything and I was shocked. They showed me the evidence.

I couldn’t believe Monika will want to take away my child just to impose someone’s child on me. So what if Tasha wasn’t Jade’s sister, then my Tori would have really died.

I sighed and went to the police station with the two of them. We tabled our charges and proofs then they followed us to Monika’s house.

She was coming out, dressed all sexy when we arrived. She was surprised to see me with police officers.

Inspector : are you Monika Oliver?

She was bold at first

Monika: yes

But when the nurse came out she shivered visibly.

Inspector : you’re under arrest for attempted murder and abuse of rights. We have enough evidence against you and you will be put behind bars for your crimes

An officer came and took her hands, she tried to protest but instead, glared at Tasha. The officer handcuffed her and she was put into their car and locked in
