Caleb has just shot Liam, Betty turned and saw Liam on the ground motionless, blood was coming out from his chest. Jordan punched Caleb’s hand and the gun fell down then they start fighting while Jackie and Betty also started fighting. Richard was just confused, he didn’t know what to do, he bend down and touched Liam’s chest, he wasn’t breathing anymore, Richard screamed when Dina pointed her gun at him and ordered him to go out, he gently stood up and followed her while they were going Carla blocked them.
“You agent of darkness, you thought we don’t know your plans.” Carla said. Dina was surprised because she never thought Carla was working with Jordan and Betty.
“One more step I will kill him.” Dina said holding Richard in his neck and still pointing gun at his head.
“Fine, don’t hurt him, let him go, he has done nothing wrong to you.” Carla said.
“Drop your gun and move ten steps backward.” Dina said.
Ok, just let him go.” Carla said as she dropped her gun and start moving backward, Dina released Richard as he was about running out of the building Dina pointed her gun at him and wanted to shot him when she heard a very loud noise, her gun fell from her hand and she starts bleeding, Carla has just shot Dina’s hand which makes Richard to stop and turned back.
“Richard run.” Carla said as she start beating Dina with punch and kick.
Meanwhile, Betty and Jordan were still fighting Caleb and Jackie, Jordan was really beating Caleb because he was way stronger than him, all Caleb’s face has swallowed, he managed to escape from Jordan’s hand and ran out but Jordan chased him and continue the fight while Jackie was a bit stronger than Betty but couldn’t beat her, they has fight and scattered everywhere. Betty putted her head inside her trouser and bought out a knife and stabbed Jackie on her stomach, she watched Jackie as she vomited blood out of her mouth and died slowly but painful as she kept stabbing her but on her head, chest, neck, eyes and stomach till Jackie gave up her ghost. She came out of the room when she saw Dina running towards her direction bleeding, she hid herself in a concer and waited for Dina to get closer. She came out from her hidden place and put the knife she used to kill Jackie in Dina’s stomach and also watched her died before she dropped the knife down when she saw Richard running around confusedly and Caleb’s dad was coming out from another room pointing his gun at Richard but Richard didn’t see him. She ran as fast as her legs could carry her, as Mr Benjamin pulled the trigger Betty shouted “Richard!!” As Richard turned she pushed him away and the bullet meet her, she fell on the ground bleeding.
“Richard run for your life.” She managed to say before she pass out.
“Betty please am sorry, open your eyes please don’t leave me.” Richard said crying when Zac who ran away when Caleb shot Liam dragged his hair pointing his gun at him as Mr Benjamin came out fully.
“So you think you can run right?” He asked.
“No, he thought Betty would be able to save him.” Zac said.
“Yea, you are right.” Mr Benjamin said and went closer to Richard.
“Today marks your end.” He said .
“One more step you die.” Olivia said as she came out from behind with some polices.
“Drop your guns and let him go.” Carla said as she and Jordan came out from behind too with Caleb already handcuffed, Mr Benjamin and Zac were surprised.
They tried to run but were shot on their legs by Olivia and a police man, Richard pass out immediately due to the sounds of gun shot he has heard.
Mr Benjamin, Caleb and Zac were arrested while Richard and Betty were taken to the hospital and Jackie, Liam and Dina’s dead bodies were also taken away.
The next day, Richard woke up at the hospital and blinked his eyes to be sure of where he was, he turned to his left and saw his mum smiling, Olivia, Carla with some bondages on her forehead and Jordan who also has bondages on his head and face.
“Son you are awake.” His mum said but he did answer he was his starring at Jordan, he regretted ever believing and listening to Caleb and his father.
“Jordan, am sorry for not trusting you.” He managed to say.
“You own me no apologies, what happened, happened for a reason, am glad you are alive and not dead.” Jordan sash and smiled at him.
“Where is Betty and Liam?” He asked.
“Betty is sleeping in her ward, she survived the bullets and Liam, he died.” Carla said.
“No oh, he shouldn’t has died, I want to see Betty, take me to her ward.” He requested trying to stand up.
“Not now, the doctor instructed us to let her rest meanwhile we have a surprise for you.” His mum said.
“A surprise? What surprised?” He asked.
“You can come in.” His mum said and Barista Daniel rolled Richard’s father (Mr Bruno) on his wheelchair into Richard’s ward alongside with Charles.
“No, he is dead!.” Richard screamed facing wall.
“I am not dead son.” His dad said.
“You are dead, we buried you two years ago.” He said still hidding his face on the wall.
“He is not dead,. What we buried two years ago was an empty casket, your dad has be in California recieving treatment.” Jordan said and he gradually turned to them.
“What? Mum do you know about this?” He asked.
“Your mum don’t know.” Jordan said and narrated how everything started, how Betty helped then and how they found out that Caleb and his father were evil. Richard couldn’t believe his ears that his own uncle Sam consin were that evil to the extend of making his father a cripple. He stood up from the bed and hugged his dad.
Two weeks later, Betty has recovered from the bullets and it was time for court, they all sat before the judge including Mrs Antonia while Betty, Caleb, Zac and Mr Benjamin stood in front of everybody. Caleb confessed how his father put him in Drugs business and how many people he had killed and why he wanted Richard dead, his father also confessed his crimes, Zac confessed his crimes and also his plan of killing caleb and his father do that he and Jackie could have the money, Betty also confessed all her crimes and why she decided to save Richard. After everything, the judge sentence Zac, Caleb and his father to 15 years In prisonment each and Betty to two years in prisonment because she was able to save a life but cannot be free without facing the law of shedding blood,They were handcuffed and taken away.
“I will come back.” Betty said to Richard and her mum before she was taken away. Everyone that knew Betty shedded tears including Richard as they watched her be taken away.
Two years later, Betty was released and her mum was very happy to see her, she turned a new leave and became a decent girl. Richard was happy to see her again, they go out together.
One faithful day, Richard went to their house and told her that he wanted to show her something so she followed him, he took her to the burnted building, they walked around and everything/everywhere was very quiet and a bit dirty.
“Do you remember here?” He asked.
“Yes, what happened here two years ago was horrible.” She said and he nod in agreement, He took her to the exact spot where she was shot.
“This is the place where you bullets for my sake.” He said and knee down and bought out a box that contains a diamond ring.
“Betty Lee, I want this ground that you sacrificed your blood on to bear us witness… WILL YOU MARRY ME?.” He asked sounding serious.
“Yes I will.” She replied happily and he fixed the ring on her finger, she helped him up and they engaged in a passionate kiss. After five minutes of kissing they stopped.
“I love you Betty.” He said and smiled.
“I love you more Richard.” She said and hugged him.
