“ My husband is gone!” Lucy said “ To where?”
“ I have no idea…”
“ You know that’s a lie!”
“ No, he walked out on me because we had an argument over the welfare of my daughter… Sir, I really don’t want to talk about him, whatever you want from me, I am game…!” Lucy said
“ Really?” The man said…
“Yes, I know Professor Glass has the antivirus, I need some for my daughter.” Lucy said
“ Ok… Then you have to come with us..” The man said
“ But, there won’t be anyone to stay with my daughter.” Lucy said
“ She will be fine, one of the men can stay with her.” The man said…
Lucy nodded in agreement, all she wanted was for her daughter to be fine. She left with the people hoping to return soon.
As Lucy got into the Limousine, and the door was shut, Lucy could tell she had made a terrible mistake. She knew within herself, this was the end of the road for her. She wanted to find the lock of the door, but one of the men showed her his gun…
“ The plan is not to help me right?” Lucy asked but got no response…
“ We are sorry, we can’t let a child under 18 into the Island, you need either a signed note from your parents or we get a phone call from them.” The staff at the
Bribia reception said.
“ My parents will join me Soon. I was told to come ahead” Henry said. He was 15 years of age.
“ Then you need to wait for them here. We can’t give you a room even if you have 1 million.” The staff said bluntly…
Anthony had stayed blocks away from the hospital waiting to see what became of his wife. The moment he saw Lucy coming out without Tricia, he could tell, something terrible was going to happen… He stopped a cab and asked the driver to follow the limousine…
“ He is behind us!” The driver of the Limousine said. Unknown to Anthony, the cab had been staged.
“ Perfect!” Said the head of the team
Lucy was about to plead, but the head of the team said…
“If you know what is good for you, keep quiet…”
Lucy felt an arm around her neck and suddenly a tissue was pressed against her nose.
Anthony saw the car pull up…
“ Stop!” He told the cab man who obediently did…
Anthony watched how Lucy was dumped on the floor and the limousine zoomed off. Anthony jumped down from his cab and simultaneously the cab sped off leaving him with Lucy… Anthony knew something instantly was off, he pulled his phone from his pocket and tried dialing the emergency number when he heard from behind…
“ Hello Sir, What have you done to her?” Anthony turned back and saw some policemen approaching him…
Anthony being a game player himself, knew what was instantly up… He had been setup. Everyone from the cab man to the Police Officers were definitely working for those people. They killed his wife and wanted him to be framed for it, that way nothing would be traced to them….

It was 2am in the morning and Rejoice sat up in the room. It felt like someone tapped her and switched on a T.V for her. However, the wall was the screen…and a hand wrote on the wall…
“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.”
