He who wants everything every time will lose everything anytime…(concluding part)
Continued from here.
“I must have done something or left some clues in case I needed to remember the formula” Jason thought as he was working in his lab.
There was a folder on his laptop named ‘Patricia’. He would never keep his personal stuff on a work computer, so why was this folder here? He tried opening it, didn’t open. ‘Password required’ it said
“What could be the password?” he thought
‘Patricia’ – Access denied
‘Jason’ – Access denied
‘Jason Patricia’ – Access denied
‘Forever & always’ – Access granted
That’s what he used to tell her before. They used to talk about going away on an island and spending their life together away from the city noise and everybody else. He remembered now. He was so excited that couldn’t wait to tell his love. He quickly went to his room and called Patricia. He hugged her and told her that he remembered everything.
“Wow, darling that’s amazing news” she said excitedly
“What was in that folder, the whole formula for the pills? We could be rich. Come on let’s get out from here and go somewhere no one will find us” she said.
“Where did we say we would go and life after eloping?” he asked her
“What, why would you ask me that?” she asked
“Tell me” he said
“Come on tell me the formula. We have to get out of here Jason, let’s not waste any time” she said
“You didn’t answer my question. It’s a pretty simple one” he said
“Ok, enough is enough. Tell me the formula or I will shoot” she said pointing a gun at him.
“I knew there was something fishy about you” he said
“Stop joking around and tell me the formula” she said angrily
“Why would you do this? and to me? I don’t understand” he asked
“I wanted money and power, I worked really hard all these years and couldn’t earn as much as I was capable of. Then I met you and thought all my dreams would come true, you were a gullible and a very easy prey. You were my ticket to fame and fortune but when you left so suddenly I was shattered. I thought all that work was for nothing. I did what I had to do. I made a deal with them. I told them if they got you to me, I would recover the formula for them and they would pay me as much as I wanted and would never bother them again” she explained.
“So all that talk about love and living together forever was just a big fat lie?” he asked
“A girl does what she has to do for a living and I did exactly what I was supposed to” she said
“You are just the same as them. You are no different. I’m not giving you anything. You can do whatever you want to” he said
“I will kill you”
“Do it. You still won’t find it”
At that moment three men entered his room and pointed a gun at him.
“Mr. Black, we know you remember everything, please cooperate with us and give is the formula and we will let you go” said a man in a black coat.
“Here take it” said Jason as he handed him a pen drive.
“Check it” said the man in black coat to one of his men
“Sir, the formula doesn’t work”
“You want me to kill you personally?” asked the man in black coat
“I don’t have the whole formula, I gave you whatever I have” he said
“Don’t lie, you know everything” he said angrily
At that moment the fire alarms went off everywhere and the room was filled with water, all the emergency exits were opened and within minutes there was total chaos.
“Find him, don’t let him go anywhere” screamed the man in black coat
“He’s gone, he’s nowhere in sight”
“You fools find him” he said
Within a few seconds Jason managed to flee the property and get away from there. The Black coat men couldn’t find him anywhere.
Turns out, before he left he had a backup plan to disappear in case something like this ever happened. The folder that he had found on his work laptop had the whole plan how to go about it. It also said that if ever he happened to open the folder he should be beware of the people around him and disappear as soon as possible. The folder had the location of the place where he hid a new identity for him, plane tickets and his getaway vehicle. All he had to do was get away from this property and reach the location undetected.
A new life awaited him and he eagerly jumped to catch hold of it.
