Alan was left alone in the living room; he waited for his father-in-law's condition's news with ease, then he was notified but to his disappointment, George was fine, actually in a good health.
He pressed his lips together, 'so he pretends to be ill? Or what could explain being fine after all that hard to breathe and chest pain? Thus he was fine?'
Just he could not understand why? As much as he remembered he didn't do anything to offend his father-in-law! Crazy old man.
Soon the maid informed him that the lunch was ready, he walked there, a long rectangular white table was set at the center, he took a random seat and crunched over it, he waited for a quarter an hour but the person who wanted to see didn't come, he picked up the napkin before him and unfolded it hard and put it on his lap, he took a deep breath as the scent of food entered his nostril his face brightened, then he savored the food like he didn't eat for ages.
Having nothing to do, Alan's boredom intensified. Pondering for a moment, he decided it would be the best for him to start working, since his return many things happened thus his work got delayed but now he was free since his honeymoon got cancelled 'I must hurry and find a job rather than spending my time facing an old man's face' he thought.
Then he remembered meeting someone who offered him a job a month ago when he was still abroad and that person happened to work here in this country, he searched for the card the man offered.
Alan knitted his brows, then he grabbed his phone and search for 'Eli & Kayn' the name of the law firm, to his surprise it was a large firm it ranked the first in his country, Alan scroll more and saw the founder name and profile. Kayn Petersen, right then the surprise turned into a frown as it was the name written in the dark blue card which he was holding.
To say he wasn't tempted by the offer it would be a lie, but he felt something wasn't right, maybe he would go and see by himself tomorrow.
Inside a small room in a place that looked like an abandoned factory,
He laid on his back, looking at the darkness surrender it, with a dim light at the sideboard beside his single bed, reflecting half of his pale face, subtle over his jaw, dark cycle under his left eye as his black orb emitted the orange light of the lamp.
Soon, the door opened and a man in his mid-thirty, wearing a black suit got in not bothering by the huge amount of spider webs nor the dust or the stench of the room; he turned on the light as he saw the person lying there closed his eyes from the sudden light in the small room.
He walked over to him "I have news that might pick your interest" he told the man but still the man laid like a motionless body as he didn't show any reaction over the words he said as he kept gazing at the roof. The man in black held his phone for a while then he showed it to him.
The man's void eyes trembled as he shook furiously in his bed, his lips shook together in anger.
So he made a new relationship when his old one was buried not long ago? That person was happily making a family while he was buried in this rat cave over three months with pain crushing his sense! Sometimes he thought he was on the verge of dying but when he remembered whose fault to be in this miserable condition, his will to revenge would increase.
He was wrong to believe that the person who he considered as a friend and was the only person who was kind to him over the years was a nice man, that person was by any means close to being nice, someone who betrayed, hurt and stepped over him!
The man laughed hysterically, now he was sure that their friendship wasn't something worthy in that person's eyes, neither he was! Or how would be in this situation, like a dead human being! actually, it was not completely wrong, they thought he was dead in that accident but he lived.
No wonder he was bullied by his peer in school or at work, the fault was not with the others but himself, being kind! No, he was stupid! He would never and ever do that again.
He wanted to go to him and made him pay for what he did! As he sat a bit of sweat formed on his forehead, he put his legs on the floor thus he fell as his feet gave away, he wanted to go! He needed to go, as the thought repeated in his mind, he crawled on the hard floor with a grim expression ignoring his body's ache.
The man in black looked at his phone which still displaying the photo of a groom and bride smiling at each other. He put his phone in his pocket then he looked at the man on the floor without a slight change of expression.
"Do you want to crawl until you arrive at him?" he said rather in a sarcastic tone, "if you want to take your revenge then this might be helpful" he continued as he threw a red folder where he is.
The man looked at the folder and opened it, a new ID, passport, his information, as he read something that caught his attention, a sinister grin formed on his face.
He struggled to go to his bed, now all he could do was to wait until his body would get better, and then he would show that person how betraying him would give him more pain than what he was suffering.
When he would crumble down and beg him for forgiveness, that day would be the happiest in his whole twenty-nine years old.
He cast a glance at his new identity, 'Jacob White' his new name.
The man in black watched everything that occurred, he grabbed his phone and send 'Done' to an unknown number and walking away wondering about the reason that made his boss helped such a weakling man.
