I'm sick, in bed and it's raining...which obviously calls for an update. 

E N J O Y!

P.s. don't forget that this book is set in the year 2045.

#Chapter Forty Three#

Mystery POV.

Two weeks later.

I slid the balcony door open and walked into the chilling cold, bringing the cigarette up to my lips as I did and lighting it up. I used my foot to shut the door closed again and made my way over to the railing that was lined with snow. Carelessly, I used my bare hand to wipe some off and then proceeded to perch my elbows against the metal.

Perfect weather, I thought as the sky began to darken and the wind bit through my thin t-shirt. I brought the cigarette to my lips and took another long drag. With every breath, I felt my worries slowly slide away and the stress leak out of my body.

I always admired how something so poisonous could make you feel better.

The silence of the night was broken by the ringing of my phone. I pulled it out of my back pocket, annoyed already.

"What?" I barked into the phone.

"Hello boss. It's Waqas."

"Ah yes," I said, perking up. "And...how did things go?"

"Smoothly Sir."

"So the items are in their correct hiding spot?"

"Yes Sir."

"And the men. Are they ready for tonight?"

"We're all set to go."

I smiled. "Wonderful...and remember what I said. Up until I approach that stupid girl, I want all of you to be on your most discreet behaviour. If any one of you ruin this opportunity for me, I will end you with my own two hands. Do you understand?"

"Yes Sir."

"And Waqas?"

I heard him cough on the other side of the line. "Yes?"

"If anyone finds out about this...and by anyone I mean the Ahmad family. I'll know who opened their big mouth."

He cleared his throat. "I comprehend Sir."

"Good."

I ended the call and quickly focused my attention back on the cigarette. Within minutes I had finished my second one and after realising it was already six o'clock, I strode back into my room.

I opened my closet and pulled out my black suit. I slid on my bulletproof vest first before slipping on a white dress shirt. I followed it through with black dress pants, a bow tie and last but not least, my suit jacket.

I sprayed some cologne on my hand and rubbed it along my neck.

Looking up into the mirror, I smiled at my appearance.

Tonight, I'd get my vengeance on the people who deserved it the most.

Sameena's POV.

2030 Election Gala

As soon as I stepped foot out of the car, a microphone was shoved into my face and I literally staggered forward in surprise. Luckily, Tariq caught me before I face planted the cement.

Wouldn't even be surprised if that happened.

"Miss Ahmad, what do you think your father's chances are with this election, especially considering recent events?" A journalist yelled at me and I winced at the pitch of her voice.
