(Caught in a dilemma )
🌺 CHAPTER 6 🌺
Roman stood behind the door when Damon was on the call. He heard only Damon’s replies and not the person at the other end of the call.
He guessed he talked about Beatrice, and the person at the other side of the call was probably the person who asked them to kidnap Beatrice.
He moved away from the door so that Damon won’t see him. He hid behind a wall and watched him as he walked.
He saw Damon walk into the room Beatrice was, and he moved closer to the door to eavesdrop.
He saw some of the guards coming and he quickly stood up and acted like he was just going on his own.
After they left, he walked back to the door and what he heard was something crashing.
He heard the door make a sound and he quickly rushed to hide. He saw Damon walk out of the room and after he was sure he wasn’t coming back, he went to the door and opened it.
He walked in and saw Beatrice on the floor, he held a destroyed phone in her hands.
“Hey.” He said behind his mask.
Beatrice said no word but kept trying to put the phone together so she could call her father.
“It won’t work,” Roman said shutting the door and squatting In front of her.
“It has to. I can’t stay here another day after talking to my dad.” Beatrice mumbled in tears.
“Beatrice please calm down okay?” Roman said and Beatrice looked at him angrily.
“don’t you get it? I am the one suffering! Not you! I am the victim, not you Roman!” she screamed in tears, and Roman sighed nodding.
“I get you. I understand how you feel.” He said and she shook her head.
“no, you don’t. You are not the one that is tied down in an unknown place, you are not the one that was forced to tell her father she is fine when she is not because she is scared he would pull the trigger! You don’t understand Roman! You don’t!” She rapped standing up and throwing the phone on the floor.
She walked back to the bed and sat on it busting into great tears.
Roman felt so bad seeing her that way and he understood what Damon had come to do to her. He felt anger in him but he had to kill it so he could calm her.
“Beatrice.” He called calmly walking to her.
“I hate it here. I don’t want to be here, I miss my family, I miss Tokyo.” She mumbled and Roman sat next to her.
“I am sorry.” He said and Beatrice turned her head to look at him.
“Why? You are good to me. You are not like the rest of them.” She said and Roman shook his head.
“No. I am like them because I am here with them, keeping you captive too.” Roman said bowing his head and she narrowed her gaze.
“You feel bad?” she asked and Roman nodded.
“of course I do Beatrice.” He said calmly standing up.
“That means you don’t want to be here anymore?” Beatrice asked staring at him.
“I never wanted to be here. But I find myself here.” He started looking at her through his mask.
“You never wanted to be here? Then why are you here?” She asked and he sighed.
“I was forced to join because of my dad.” He stated and Beatrice wanted to know more after hearing the name “Dad”.
“Your dad? Where is he?” Beatrice asked glaring at Ramon.
“he is dead,” Ramon said feeling hurt and she felt pity for him.
“I am so sorry Ramon, I never knew,” Beatrice said and he shook his head.
“It is nothing. You didn’t do anything wrong.” He said and She nodded.
“So how did he force you here?” Beatrice further interrogated.
“He was working with the boss before he died. Damon killed him because he tried to play smart with him.” Damon explained.
“Tried to play smart? Who is Damon anyways?” Beatrice asked and Ramon walked back to the bed and sat.
“The boss. He claims my father wanted to play smart so he killed him.” Ramon said clenching his jaws.
“He killed him! Why would he do that!” Beatrice stated in shock.
“you don’t have you be surprised. Anyone hurting his neighbor like we are doing to you would surely pay for it and death is part.” Ramon said Beatrice shook her head in pity for Ramon.
“So how did you get here?” She inquired.
“My father was owing Damon before he was killed. So Damon took me and made me one of his boys, so I would work for him till he got his money back.” He explained.
“How long have you been here?” Beatrice asked.
“Three years. And I can’t count how many people have been in your situation. I keep wondering how I am yet to pay off all my father owed.” Damon said.
“Ramon you need to get the hell out of here. You are not here because of your dad anymore, he is using you. Don’t you see that?” She asked holding his hand and he looked at her.
“I know but if I leave before he releases me, I would be killed just like my father and nobody would do anything about it.” He said and Beatrice felt pity for him.
“He is going to pay for this Ramon, I promise you. Once I am out of here, I would do something about this.” Beatrice said confidently
“Beatrice I don’t think that would be soon. Do you have anyone very close to you but you don’t trust?” Ramon asked and she furrowed her brows shaking her head.
“No why?” She asked.
“Most cases, the one who always orders of the victim’s kidnap are people that are close to them, the ones people least expect.” He stated and Beatrice shook her head.
Why would someone I trust to do this to me?” She asked.
“I trusted my father my whole life until he dragged me into this mess. You can’t trust anyone.” He muttered.
“My father would never, my mother is an angel. And Tokyo is the best partner you could ever have. They are the ones I trust and this would never come from them.” Beatrice believed and stated.
Ramon nodded standing up, he knew he couldn’t force her to believe him but h had a strong feeling it was someone very close to her though he doesn’t know the person.
Damon is that crazy when it comes to things like this. We would never get to know who ordered the kidnap except it is necessary we know.
“So you are going to keep working here?” Beatrice asked him standing up.
“I can’t anymore. Once you are released, I am out of here either dead or alive.” He said with determination.
“What if I am not released and I am killed instead?” Beatrice asked approaching him.
“I would never let that happen. You are getting out of her alive no matter what it takes.” He sang boldly and She smiled.
She got right in front of him and reached for his mask. Ramon held her hand and she stared into the eyes of the mask.
“You still don’t trust me? I would never use your face against you. I just want to see the face behind this mask, nothing more.” She said as Ramon stared back at her.
He nodded releasing her hand and she smiled reaching for it. She pulled it from his jaw lines slowly up to his pink sexy lips.
She glared at his lips for seconds before she kept pulling it off his face. He had a smoothly laid mustache.
She pulled it over his nose and she saw his neatly curved out nose. It was long and pointed.
She got to his eyes and finally got the mask off. She became lost!
He had blue eyeballs, and wonderful eyebrows and his face was f**king cute as a whole.
“Oh, My God.” She muttered before thinking.
