Caleb stopped at the front of the company gate.
“Here we are my lady.” He said.
“Yea, thanks so much Caleb.” She said.
“It nothing, can we have a dinner tomorrow in my house?” He requested.
“Umm, that won’t be a problem but i will want my friend (Jackie) to be there, hope you don’t mind?” She said.
“Not at all.” He replied.
“Ok, let me go now before i get late.” She said opening the car door.
“Alright, have a wonderful day.” He said smiling.
“Same here and thanks.” She said as she step out of the car, Caleb nod in response and drove out. Betty starred at him as he drove off, she smiled to herself and hissed. (“You think you are wise but unfortunately, you meet a girl that is wiser than you. For your mind you have fooled me, let’s see how the game goes.” She thought and turned to go inside the company compound when she saw Jordan walking to her.
“Good morning Beauty Lee.” Jordan said as soon as he got closer to her.
“How did you know my name?” She asked.
“You are my boss assistant manager so i should know your name and apart from that, we met two years ago…do you still remember?” He asked.
“Yes i do and where is the man i saw you with then?” She asked too.
“He is Richard’s father and he own this company.” He said.
“I thought as much because the name “Bruno” sounded familiar, i remembered that very night the man told me his name. So where is the man now?” She asked.
“Listen, here is not the right place to talk about this, give me your cell number and i Will call You later and tell you where to meet me.” He said.
“You are right and i Have alot to tell you, we need to work together.” She said and gave him her number.
“Come let me take you to Richard.” He said and Betty just starred at him and smiled before following him. They got to Richard’s office door, Jordan knocked before they entered the office, Richard couldn’t get his eyes off Betty.
“You are looking more beautiful than i thought.” He said and Betty began to blush
“Thank you very much sir.” She said hidding her face.
“From tomorrow i Will be coming to pick from home to work and take you back home.” He said.
“Sir, you don’t have to worry ok? I can take care of myself.” She said avoiding his gaze.
“I insist and also you can call me Richard not sir.” He said and she nod.
“Alright, you can go now, your secretary is waiting for you, he will show you your office.” He said.
“Okay sir.” She replied and left.
“You like her?” Jordan asked.
“I think so.” He replied smiling.
That evening after work, Jordan took Richard home and called Betty and told her where she can meet him. Betty got home, has a warm shower and put on blue trouser, black sweater and black shoes….she left home and went to the hotel which Jordan has sent her the address.
On the other hand, Caleb lied on his big bed, wearing only short, he dialled Jackie’s number and she picked almost immediately.
“It seems someone has be waiting for my call!?” He said.
“Yes off course.” Jackie replied.
“Sorry dear, i would have called you since morning but i was very busy.” He explained.
“I understand, so did you still go to Betty’s house as we agreed?” She asked
“Oh yes and i apologize to her.” He said.
“So what did she said?” She asked.
“She said she has forgiven me and she even apologies to me for saying that you and i are dating and she agreed to play the game with us….i also invited her for a dinner in my house and she requested that you will also come so i accepted.” Caleb explained.
“Job well done, have you see now that the plan is working?” Jackie asked.
“Yes. And all thanks to you.” He said.
“It nothing dear.” She said.
“Ok, got to go, talk to you tomorrow.” He said.
“Yeah good night.” She replied and Caleb end the call just then his dad came into his room.
“Dad.” He called.
“Hey son, how was your day?” His father asked sitting on the bed.
“It was great and yours dad?” He asked too.
“It went smoothly, so how is our game plan going?” His father asked.
“It going very well, Betty has started working with Richard.” He said.
“That’s good, i Hope that over protective personal assistant that called himself Jordan won’t spoilt everything?” His father asked.
“No, i Have already told Betty about him so she knows how to handle him.” He said.
“Ok, so what’s our next plan?” His father asked and he explained everything to him.
“That’s my son, am proud of you son.” His father said excitedly.
“Thanks dad.” He said.
“So after Richard is dead, we will send Betty to jail then kill Jackie and you and i Will enjoy all the wealth.” His father said laughing.
“Exactly.” He said and they laughed.
“But we have another problem! What about Jordan?” His father asked.
“Forget about him, i Will handle him.” He said
“That’s my son, like father like son.” His father said and they laughed out loud.
Meanwhile, Betty got to the hotel and was directed to the room where Jordan was, she got there, knocked and was asked to entered. When She entered the room, she met Jordan, an elderly man and two young ladies, she recongize the ladies face.
“Good evening everyone.” She greeted.
“Good evening, welcome.” They greeted her too.
“You have your seat.” Jordan said.
“Are this two ladies not Richard’s friends?” She asked.

“So what are they doing here?” She asked.
“Well, meet Carla and Olivia, they are detective police.” Jordan said.
“And this man?” She asked pointing at the elderly man.
“He is barista Daniel and also Mr Bruno’s lawyer.” Jordan said.
“Hmm, interesting.” She said.
“So Beauty Lee, can you please tell us everything you know about the ploit to kill Richard?” Carla asked.
“How did you know they are planning to kill Richard?” She asked.
“My dear, we know everything and that’s why Mr Bruno sent us to protect his only son and wife.” Olivia said.
“Does that mean Richard doesn’t know you guys are detective police?”. She asked.
“No, he doesn’t but he will know at the right time.” Olivia said.
“So can you tell us what we need to know?” Barista Daniel asked while she nod and narrated everything to them without leaving any stone untouched.
“Hmm, how long have you be working for Caleb Jackie?” Jordan asked.
“For the past five years.” She said.
“Can you tell us how it all started?” Carla asked.
“It all started when it was still in university in Brazil, Caleb came for a project in Brazil that’s how i Met him though Jackie knew him before.” She said as tears began to rolled from her eyes..
