“You’ve got to be kidding me!” Sarah exclaimed. “This can’t be possible.” Her mind failed to accept the fact that she was the target of crazed madman. “Why would someone be after me?”
“Why would I lie to you, Sarah?” He said, his expression somber. “You don’t understand the seriousness of this situation.”
“But, Why?” She was dumbstruck.
“Sarah, it is my belief that your mother’s death and Silver’s unexpected death wasn’t a coincidence. There is something missing in all this and we must find out but first of all, you need to be protected.”
“Silver was suffering from cancer,” Sarah thought aloud. “I saw her reports myself.”
“Sarah, I am certain sure there is a puzzle piece missing. Right now, the most important thing is to keep you safe.”
“I am safe! I was safe for the last five years and nothing whatsoever has happened.”
“Things have changed, Sarah! This is not New York, you are not in your parents house surrounded by your neighborhood. You have to listen to me.” He said, desperately.
“ How do you fit in this picture? Why are you so concerned?” Sarah asked, suddenly suspicious.
“Because Sarah, my name is Nick, I am from the Federal Investigation Bureau and I am responsible for your case.” He said, his expression sober.
Sarah stood on the balcony, looking at the setting sun. Her mind was still on the conversation she had in the café. How can she believe Nick? Her mind rejected the idea that she was in any danger. After what had happened to her, how could she trust Nick. She had lived alone for a long, long time and no harm had befallen her, so how could she believe that she was in danger. Why hadn’t he been there, when she was so lonely? She will in no condition keep an armed guard, more or less a bodyguard with her day and night, she decided. She wasn’t harmed, nothing was different like it used to be but still he was forcing her to believe that her life was in danger. Shaking her head, she turned around and decided to go for a walk. Perhaps, that would relax her and she would be able to think rationally. Pulling on a coat, she switched off the lights and closed the door behind her. A hand came out of nowhere and gagged her. Her breathing stopped as a cloth containing Chloroform was pressed against her nose and she fainted.
