Abdo’s Series “Darkness Is My Ally” (Sequel) | Part 3 “Hidden Secrets”
“Suzan my princess where are you hiding?”
“Is my princess under the table?”
“Boo! Oh so you have found a new place to hide, I see you behind the curtains. Boo! Found you.”
“Haha, again Dad lets play again.”
“Now I’ll hide and you search for me.”
“Nooooo! I don’t want you to leave me for even a minute.”
“Yes, Suzan but do you know something princess?”
“Hmm, what is it, Dad?”
“Come sit with me, if you listen carefully you will get to eat ice cream tonight.”
“Yesss I love ice creams, strawberry ice creams, I want a big box of ice cream.”
“Haha ok, So one day you will be a big brave girl and you will have your own house your new friends and of course you will have so many ice creams but I may not be there with you, but you never feel sad about that.”
“Where will you go, will Mommy go with you too?”
“Yes everyone will go one day but you will always have to be there for yourself, and keep up this beautiful cute smile on your lips.”
“Haha yes Dad I will do it, now let’s go buy ice cream, a big yummy box.”
“Haha but you are still too young for a big box.”
“Nooo! You agreed let’s go now!”
“Haha ok let’s go princess.”
I heard a knock on my door, I wiped my tears in a hurry and looked up to see. It was Megan.
“Hey, sorry, come inside.”
“Here have some water Suze.”
I took a few sips. “Oh I totally forgot to give the reports, let’s go,” I said trying to hide my emotions, trying to hide how his words have broken me. I stood up and opened my drawer as if I was searching for something but I just couldn’t stop my tears.
“Yes, Megan?” I replied not even looking at her. She pulled my hands.
“Suzan sit down, take your time, we heard what he said,” she said in such sympathetic tone, I turned around and burst into tears she hugged me to calm me down. I sat there crying for some minutes she didn’t stop me and when I calmed she passed me a glass of water.
“Here take your medicine and rest, Mr. Aaron Ramsey will be here any minute.” She stood up and proceeded to leave but she stopped at the door and turned around.
“And try not to think about it a lot, we have caught him now and he will be punished for what he did,” she said with an assuring smile on her face, I smiled back in response.
“Don’t forget to call your mom she must be worried,” she said and left the room.
I sat there for a few moments calmed myself self took my medicine and then called my mother she picked up the call immediately and the first thing I heard.
“Where have you been Suzan? I was so worried. Megan told me you were unconscious. I tried to call you multiple times later but no one responded to tell me how did that happen are you feeling better now? Tell me.”
My mother was kind of overprotective and I don’t blame her for that as she didn’t even know where her daughter was right now expecting that she was in a highly secured facility, after what happened to Dad everything changed in our little family she just didn’t want to lose anyone again, she didn’t even know who I was questioning this time.
“Mom calm down I am fine,” I replied trying to sound happy as much as I could.
“Don’t worry Mom I was just busy, sorry I didn’t call you earlier.”
“It’s ok Suzan just take care of yourself and do call me everyday ok?” She said.
“Yes Mom every day, ok I must go now I’ll call you later, love you, Mom.”
“Love you too, take care of yourself.” I hung up the call, I didn’t want her to think I was hurt. I put my phone down and drank another glass of water when my phone’s screen turned on I picked it up to see it was a text from Megan.
“Mr. Aaron Ramsey is here come fast.”
I stood up and ran outside forgetting everything. Even though Aaron and I were both close friends but still during the working hours he always acted serious and tough I hardly ever saw him smiling. When I reached there I saw Megan waiting for me desperately.
“What took you so long Suze?”
I gave her an annoyed look. “Are you serious? I came here running. Tell me am I looking in shape?” I asked with a smile on my face.
“Yes, perfect as always”.
The door slid open and the man we have been waiting for was finally here, he stepped in wearing his white suit which looked too tight for him I wondered how he was even comfortable wearing that nor I ever really saw him wearing anything other than white and behind him was the mini-army that goes everywhere with him although I don’t think Aaron would ever need them as he looked no less than a killing machine himself and I heard stories of how brutally he was trained since a very young age and his physique made him look even tougher.
He walked to Smith and gave him a tight hug. I could see on Smith’s face how happy he was to see his brother there. They exchanged a few words which I couldn’t hear properly then he reached me and gave me a warm hug.
“Hope you are alright?”
He said and walked towards the area in which only he was allowed to enter and those he allows, and unfortunately, I wasn’t one of them. The door slid again, six men and four women walked in, the women were wearing lab coats, and the men black suits and held bags in their hand. They showed their IDs and walked towards the area where Aaron went.
I found that strange as I was aware of every single person who will be working on this case and those ten people were for sure not them, but I didn’t want to ask anything, I felt exhausted and wanted to rest. But before that, I needed to talk to Smith. I saw him walking toward his room.
“Dr. Smith,” I called him from behind, he turned around smiling as always, and came to me.
“Hey doc, how are you feeling now?”
“I am feeling much better… Actually Smi… Dr. Smith, I am sorry for behaving so rudely earlier.”
“When?” He asked laughing, I knew for sure he knew what I was talking about.
“When I was in the medical room, Sorry for what happened there.”
“Oh that, I totally forgot about it, it’s ok I didn’t felt that.”
“And thanks for the pills,” I said and turned to walk to my room.
“Actually those were sweet pills, I know you love sugar.”
I totally ignored him and kept walking. When I reached the room Megan was already there waiting for me holding our meal.
“Thank you, Megan, but I am not in the mood to eat.” Her smile turned into a frown upon hearing that.
“Ok but you must eat to stay healthy.”
“Now you are talking like my mother Megan.” She laughed
“I actually learned that from your mother, and she is the one who told me to take care of you, so you must eat.”
I wasn’t in the mood for any arguments either, so I sat down and ate with her. After I was done eating she passed me a glass of water.
“Take your pill too.”
I brought the pills laying on my bed.
“Sugar pills, why don’t you have some too.”
I put them on the table and went to my bed. After a few mins, Megan turned off the light and left the room and I fell asleep. I woke up to the sound of something dropping on the floor, my digital clock showed it was 02:09 AM I was still sleepy I saw someone standing at the end of my bed.
“Megan is that you?”
I asked as no one was allowed to enter my room except her I rubbed my eyes to get a better look, it was a man standing there but I couldn’t see his face I sat up and turned on the lights, but there was no one. Except for that same fragrance I smelled before questioning him.
