“You never came to visit our mother in jail?” he asked and suddenly some men came in the room crashing the door.
“You, traitor!” Junaid screamed looking at me.
“I don’t even know who they are.” I replied.
Three of them grabbed me and one of them started punching my face. Others did the same with Junaid and these men took us out. I only remember that I was hit on my head and when I woke up, I was in Junaid’s room.
“How did they know that you were coming here?” Junaid asked me right away.
“Oh…!” I said while I was feeling a little numb, “when I was heading here, I saw Rihanna in a car. I followed her, but then I realized that I was trapped. After beating me they took me to Rihanna. She said that she doesn’t want to interfere in this matter and gave authority to her men to do whatever they want to do with me. After a while, I woke up in my car. And I guess they followed me here.”
“so, this was the accident?”
“I guess so.” I replied, “Do you know why I never came to see our mother?”
“Our grandma never allowed me…”
Junaid laughed with a shine of tears in his eyes and hugged me and said, “We are hit by the same sword brother.”
“Junaid you, ok?” I asked him.
“I had almost lost hope to meet you. Let us now rebuild our world again, after uniting with Rihanna.”
“Indeed.” I hugged him back and asked , “where are those men and who saved us?”
“Do you know why this guest house is special?” he asked.
“Because here, we live as a family.”
Suddenly a man came into the room and said, “Junaid, there is someone waiting for you outside.”
“Bring him in.”
The guy came into the room and he looked like the men I saw earlier, and he said “I can be a great help to both of you.”
“You can’t fool me. I have seen you. You work for Arkham.”
“Yes, my name is Hurram and he is my enemy too.”
“Really! So why are you still working for him?”
“Who is Arkham?” I interrupted.
“The one who adopted your sister.” The man replied and asked, “So Junaid, out of you and your sister, why do you think Arkham chose your sister?”
“How am I supposed to know that.”
“And on the other hand, do you know why Arkham was imprisoned in the first place?”
“I don’t care why he was jailed.” Replied Junaid, “He is enough of a psychopath already.”
“It is important that you finally get to know his story.” seeing Junaid’s questioning eyes, the man proceeded, “Arkham killed my brother because he was the only person who was against him. After killing him, he announced it publicly to maintain his fear in the hearts of people. But that didn’t last long as he was soon arrested.
No one dared to look directly into his eyes and everyone tried to stay away from him. Soon he was struck with loneliness which started affecting his mind badly until a ray of sunshine came into his life and it was your sister; Rihanna.
She was the only one who would look directly into his eyes and smile. This changed him a lot. He started to grow fond of her and would spend the whole day playing with her. Your mother was observing all this and soon she started to trust him with her daughter. After a month your mother became sick. She made it clear not to entrust her children to their grandmother.
After your mother’s death, it was decided that the twins will be sent to an orphanage. Before getting his bail Arkham declared that he was going to adopt Rihanna. And you already know what happened after that.”
After a deep breath, he proceeded “If you want your sister to be free then you have to help me take my revenge on him.”
“So, what’s the plan?” asked Junaid.
“Plan…”he looked at us and said, “Plan is that your brother must come with me and disguise himself as one of his men.”
Junaid stopped him and said, “You can’t take my brother I can’t let this happen.”
“I will make sure he is safe there, trust me, I have a well structured plan.”
“Well I don’t care about your plan. It is not necessary that everything will go according to your plan. Plans fail too.”
“If you don’t agree with me, I won’t be able to help you.”
Then he said pointing towards Junaid, “I would have taken you, but Arkham knows you. No one will recognize your brother and as far as the men who saw you today are concerned, I can handle them.”
“What do you even need me for?” I asked.
“you ask too many questions.”
After a brief discussion between me and Junaid, we agreed to his conditions. Then next week he took me with him and before I could know it, I was one of Arkham’s men.
The first step of the plan was to somehow get close to Rihanna and the easiest way to do that was to become her driver. Replacing her old driver was a piece of cake as Hurram easily managed that.
Now to take the plan forward it was important to inform Rihanna about the situation and I had a good plan in my mind.
The next day as per her usual routine she was supposed to go to the library and I was waiting in the driver’s seat. She got in the car but could not recognize me and we left. I pulled the car in front of the library and as soon as she stepped out of the car, she recognized me, she was in deep shock. She froze for a moment but before the guards could suspect anything, she went into the library and I followed her.
Inside the library, she asked me to hand her a book and I managed to slip in a note and handed it to her.
I started worrying that she might not be able to find the note, but all I could was wait. When we finally left the library, I opened the door for her, and before entering, she looked at me, and with a surprisingly peaceful look on her face, she nodded and I knew that my plan had worked.
