Jake stumbled into the living room of the penthouse.
" Mr.Kim! " He called out as soon as he saw Elios sitting on the couch and talking to someone who looked like a doctor.
Eliot sprang up from the recliner, blinking his eyes to adjust to the lighting.
" Jake! " Asahi who was standing behind Eliot ran up to Jake and engulfed him in a tight hug.
" My son. I am so glad you woke up. So glad. "
Jake hugged back tightly before pulling away.
" We need to warn Samuel. " He said immediately.
" What? Warn him? About what? " Elios asked him furrowing his eyebrows.
Eliot pulled out his phone, " He hasn't checked my messages and calls. "
" What's going on? " Asahi asked grabbing Jake's shoulder and bringing him to the couch.
" You remember the house Samuel bought in Parker Town? I went to that house because Brian, who takes care of it, made a very suspicious call to me. I went there to check what happened but I found Maria there. She was kidnapped by some goons. I fought with two but I was hit, " he winced and caressed the back of his head, " I think they are going to accuse him of her kidnapping. "
Eliot dialled for Samuel's number again and finally he picked up.
" Hello. Brother. Did something happen? You called me quite a few times. "
" Where are you? " Eliot asked.
" I am at Parker Mansion. Maria got kidnapped. They just found her. I am waiting for her arrival. "
" Get out of there. As soon as you can. "
" What? Why? " Samuel was genuinely confused.
" Come to the Stars Hotel penthouse. I will tell you then. " Eliot replied instead.
" Alright. "
Brian reached his fiancées house and banged loudly on the door.
The door opened and she gasped seeing his state, " Brian! What the hell happened to you? Why are you so bruised? "
She pushed her back and got inside, quickly sitting the wooden door behind him.
" Tell me. " She grabbed his shoulders to give him support since he was leaning herself on the wall.
" Lara! " He called out weakly, " Listen, I want you to pack your bags and leave this town immediately. " He coughed at the end of the sentence feeling his throat dry.
" What? What's going on? " She asked taken aback.
" Lara, please- "
" No! Tell me. Are you in trouble? Are we in danger? Did you get involved in, some, illegal work? " She grimaced at the end of her sentence, " Its not that right. "
" Just do what I am saying. I will tell you everything. Just convince your parents and leave with them for now. It's for the best. Alright. Please love. " He pleaded.
" But where should we go? "
" Bring me a paper and pen. I, I will write an address, go there. I will also write a message, give it to Mr Jake Lee, okay. Remember the name, Jake Lee. He will help you. I will come and meet you soon. "
She sighed and nodded.
Samuel entered back in the mansion after ending his call with his brother.
He prayed that everything was fine and it was just some business issue.
Descending the stairs tothe living room, he eyed both Daniel and Jay who were sitting opposite each other in front of the fireplace.
Rolling his eyes at Daniel's attempt of flattering Jay he picked up his coat and wallet from the couch.
" And where are you going? " Jay asked eyeing Samuel while massaging his temples.
" None of your business. " Smauel replied and turned around to leave.
" Well, you had been waiting impatiently for Maria and now when she is found you are leaving. What? Are you afraid she will say that you kidnapped her? "
" Are you still high on something? "
" You are leaving in a hurry. As if you are scared. "
Samuel's eyebrow twitched and he slumped down on the couch.
" Let's wait then. I am pretty sure you will be the one apologising afterwards, Mr.Parker. "
" Yeah, yeah, whatever. We will see when she comes home. I will be glad to put you behind bars. "
Samuel cracked his neck and chose to stay silent. He didn't want to argue more.
' I will just make sure she is alright and then leave immediately. ' He thought.
Daniel scowled at his figure and looked at Jay.
" Uncle! Why did you stop him from leaving? He will become a shining star in Maria's eyes when she come sto know that he stayed here all night and helped us in finding her. He will become more important for her. " He whisper-yelled at Jay.
" Shut up and don't question me again. " Jay glared back, " Just sat back and watch. You will understand later. "
Samuel saw them whispering to each other from the corner of his eyes, but shrugged it off.
His phone pinged indicating a message.
He opened it to find a message from Jackson, one of his trusted men, that was ordered to follow Nancy John.
Quickly unlocking his phone, he read the message and the attached images with it.
The corner of his mouth lifted in a small smirk.
-She came to meet a person named Mia John. I managed to get in the room. She matches the woman you gave me the picture of. I have attached her images as well as Nancy's with it. I an trying to find Mia's medical file. Will contact you as soon as i can-
" Finally found her. Hope she is healthy enough to help us. " His hand unconsciously moved to his neck feeling the hawk within the circle necklace under his crisp black shirt.
