Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 55
Knowing the killer
In a huff, I jolted up from the chair
What did I just hear? Candy has been shot
D--n! this is so crazy …..
I need your Car keys. I said to dave who was watching me quietly
What Is wrong? Why are you acting all weird? he asked with his eyes fixed on me
It Is Candy , She has been shot . I said with a trembling voice
What!he stood up abruptly, where? How did it happen?
I don’t know, Just give me the f-----g key . I yelled
he brought out the key from his pocket and handed it to me
I took a few steps and stopped
And one more thing, do not tell Chase about this until he leaves the concert hall. I instructed and he nodded
I scurried out of the backstage and squeeze and pushed my way out of the concert hall
Nick! Nick!Nick! I heard a few people scream my name but Ignored them…
My mind was with Candy , I just hope she is fine…..
Getting outside the concert hall, the reporters rushed to crowd me
Get out of my way . I yelled and forced my way out of their gathering..
I headed to the parking lot, got into dave’s car and drove off heading to the bus station…
Before getting to the bus station, I sighted something vague at the corner of the road and on closer look, I noticed it was three persons. One was standing while the remaining two were kind of seated on the … d--n! they were the ones , it was Candy , Loretta and a third person…..
I drove closer to them and parked the car at the corner of the road
I alighted from the car and rushed towards them
Oh my gawd! I froze as I stared at Candy’s , her clothes were soaked with blood and she was as white as sheet …
help her please , please help her. Loretta pleaded with a hoarse voice, it was obvious she had been crying
And without wasting much time , I carried Candy in a bridal style
Open the car doors. I instructed Loretta and she did
I placed Candy gently at the back seat and closed the car door
I will come with you . Loretta offered and I nodded
Tiffany! She called the girl beside her and I shifted my gaze to the girl
She was whimpering and was in tears also
We have no time Loretta, is she coming with us or not?
No there is no enough space in the car, go back to the Concert hall and wait for Chase . she instructed the girl who just nodded …
We got into car and I drove off heading to the hospital….
But how did it happen ? I asked Loretta on our way to the hospital
I don’t know , we just heard gunshots and we rushed to see Candy on the ground bleeding. she explained
Just like that , did you see anyone or anything suspicious? I continued
Yes, we saw two men running away . She said and I bit my lips in anger……:
How is that … I stopped when my phone buzzed indicating a text message
It was from an unknown number, I clicked on it
“ hope you are not grieving too much, this is just the beginning of the pain I will cause you and Chase ….. too bad for the innocent child , I pray she makes heaven…
Bastard! I cursed while hitting the steering wheel
Watch out. Loretta screamed and I immediately swerved the car to avoid hitting the vehicle coming directly in front of me…
What is wrong with you? Do you want to get us all killed?Didn’t you see the car? She asked rushingly but I ignored her
I was lost in thought thinking about what I just read….
Did the killer shoot Candy just to hurt us?
D--n! he must be a real beast to play with people life….
I glanced at Candy through the rear mirror, she was still bleeding…
I bit my lips in anger
I would never forgive my self if anything happens to her, but who the hell is the killer?
The crowd cheered and applauded when I was done singing
We love you Chase! We love you Chase! We need more song!they kept on screaming and I chuckled
I gave a slight bow and left the stage to the back stage …..
I met only Dave in the backstage, he was seated on a chair with his head bowed slightly
What is wrong with him? I wondered
Dave ! I called and he jolted out of his thoughts or whatever he was doing
Chase! Are you done with the concert? he asked and I chuckled softly
Were you sleeping? I guess you didn’t get enough sleep since you were so worried about the concert . I drawled and he smiled lightly
Where is Nick? Why is he …. oh! he probably went out to call his girlfriend. Speaking of girlfriend, my minded drifted to Candy
Did she make it?if so , why have she not called ? I wondered
Dave! I called and he looked at me
Do you by any chance know if Candy is at the concert? I asked
Yes no … erm I mean how will I know? he stuttered and I arched my eyebrow..
I brought out my phone my pocket and dialled her number
It rang but she did not pick
I dialled it again but it was the same time
Weird! I muttered
She might not be with her phone or she might be sleeping. Dave said and I shook my head
The candy I know cannot sleep without calling to know how the concert went , she cannot sleep without Checking up on me, she cannot sleep without hearing my voice…….
Easy Chase , it is only an assumption. Dave calmed me down, he was trying not to meet my gaze
I dialled Loretta’s number and she didn’t pick up
What is wrong with both of them? I wondered
I dialled it again is but it was still the same thing..
I felt my heart race faster…
Why are they not picking their calls? Where exactly are they? I decided to call Nick , he might have answers to my questions…
I dialled his number and he picked it on the second ring
hello brother! he greeted, his voice sounded a bit different
hi Nick! How are you? have you been crying? I asked and he chuckled
And why would I cry?…. are you done with the concert. he asked
Yes bro , where are you? Have you heard from Candy? I asked in a rush
Yes, she is here with me . he answered and I sighed in relief
Can I please talk to her?
Erm Chase you see I have to go now . he said and hung up the call…..
I stared at the phone, what the hell Just happened, why did he bang the call on me?….
Walking out of the Concert hall, the crowds keep on cheering..
Some tried to move closer to me but the securities shoved and pushed them away
Don’t be hard on them , just block them and that is all. I instructed
I don’t want anyone getting hurt ………
A few reporters rushed to me immediately I walked out of the concert hall
Your concert was a blast , can you please say something nice to you fans. One of them started
Can you please tell us what your second song was all about? another asked and I huffed
Ignoring all of my them , I followed behind the securities as they led the way …..
but why are they …….. I stopped when something caught my attention…
It was an ambulance surrounded by a few reporters , it was parked adjacent to the concert hall…
What is wrong? Did anyone get hurt? I wondered and started walking towards the scene
And where do you think you are going? Dave asked as he caught me by the arm
And where does it look like to you? I need to confirm what is going on over there
But Chase that is……. he tried to say but I cut him off
It is my Concert, I have to make sure no one gets hurt ..
I heard him sighed……
Getting nearer to where the ambulance was parked, I spotted a familiar face among the crowd
Tiffany! She was talking to one of the reporters while wiping her face with a hand towel
is she crying? If so , why?…..What is she even doing here all alone? …..
Tiffany! I called as I moved closer to her and she looked in my direction
She mumbled something to the reporter she was talking with and ran towards me…:
Chase! Chase! I have been waiting out here for you . She said , she was breathing hard
Calm down Tiff. I drew her closer to me, what is wrong? Why are you crying? Why is there an ambulance here? I asked in a rush
Loretta called the ambulance. She said still breathing hard
Loretta! I repeated in surprise, was she here? I asked
Yes, she was here with Can…. she tried to say but Dave cut her off
Shut up miss. he barked at her and faced me, Let us get out of here
I looked at him and then back at Tiffany …
What the hell is going on here? Why did Loretta call the ambulance? I yelled at Tiffany but she just bent her head without saying anything
I held her shoulders
Tiffany please talk to me, where is Candy ? I asked with a trembling voice
She looked up at me and then shifted her gaze to Dave
He said I should keep quiet. she said and bursted into tears
Where is Candy? I repeated
She should be in the hospital by now . She answered and my heart stopped beating
hospital! but why? I managed to ask
Candy was shot , your girl friend was shot . She repeated and I froze
What did I just hear? Candy was…… no it can’t be.. I screamed loudly
You can’t do this here, you are attracting a lot of attention. Dave said while trying to hold me
I don’t care, I don’t f-----g Care. I yelled and pushed him away …
I ran my hands through my hair, I was d--n confused
I brought my phone from my pocket to dial her number again but it fell off from my hands
My hands were shaking, my head was spinning, I could not think clearly ….:
Chase we need to get out of here . I heard Dave said but his voice sounded so distant ….
I picked my phone up from the ground and quickly rushed to the parking lot…..
Getting to parking lot, I looked around for Dave car but couldn’t find it
D--n! I bit my lips to stop my self from yelling at the securities who were following right behind me..
We can all go there with the police van. one of them said
Then what are you waiting for, get into the d--n car . I yelled ……
We all got into the car and the cops behind the whole drove off heading to the the hospital…..
Dora Delgado ( Chase mum)
Leaning on my husband Chest, we were in the sitting room watching the television when an important information popped up the screen
I widened my eyes in shock as I read it
“ Popular singer Candace Noah got shot by unknown men “
What the f--k! I heard Neil cursed and i immediately sat up
I looked into his face , he was trying to control his anger by biting his lips……
I tapped him gently and he looked at me and sighed
Don’t worry too much Dora , I am sure she will be fine. he assured and I nodded
his phone suddenly buzzed indicating a text message
he clicked on it and Just stared blankly at his phone..
I tugged gently at his clothes and he looked at me
It is nothing import…. he tried to say but I frowned
Fine! he sighed and handed me the phone
I widened my eyes in shock as I read the message , it was a message from Nick
“Dad! We really need to do something about this , my mother murderer is the same person who shot at Candy “
Oh my gawd! Is this Andy doing again? I cant hold it any longer , I need to tell my family about my suspicions
I picked my jotter and pen from beside me and wrote down a name into it ,Andy….
I handed the jotter to Neil and he stared at it with confusion clearly written all over his face
Andy! What did he do? he asked fixing a steady gaze on me and I sighed
I dragged the jotter from him and wrote into it again
he leaned over to watch me write
“He is Roxy lover and the suspected killer
he gasped in shock
But how did you know? He asked
I caught them having sex. I wrote and he froze
Are you sure about this? he asked and I nodded
he stood up in a huff
Go to your room, I need to go make a report . he informed and I shook my head negatively , I was trying to tell him not to go. but being the stubborn person I have always known him to be , he walked out of the house in a huff…..
What will I do now? I wondered
I checked my jean pocket for my phone but it was not there , I guess I left it in the room..
I stood up from the sofa and headed upstairs
I need to inform Chase before it gets out of hand…….
Pacing up and down the hospital reception, I was waiting for the doctor reports about Candy’s condition..
She was rushed into the ICU unit for an emergency surgery…
This is just too much for her, i hope and prays she survive it ……
a hand tapped my shoulders gently and smiled lightly knowing it was Loretta
I looked in the direction and met her gaze
hey Loretta! I called softly and she smiled, I felt a bit relieved seeing her smile, she has been moody ever since the drive to the hospital
She held my hands and led me over to a seat ,she sat down and urged me to do the same
I agreed and sat down beside her
You don’t need to worry too much, I know Candy with be fine. She assured and I nodded
But I am still confused about why anybody would want Candy dead, I mean she is a lady with a pure heart. She started and look at me before she continued
Or do you have any idea on who the person might be?
And how will I know that? I retorted trying not to meet her steady gaze
Because you have been acting kind of weird….
That is because I am worried about my sister , I mean who …..: I stopped when I heard a familiar voice call me
I looked in the direction and saw Chase rushing towards me with Dave and the girl… what is that her name again?… erm Tiff, yes Tiffany coming behind him…..
I stood up from the chair and walked towards him
Chase! you need to …. I tried to say but he cut me off
Where is Candy? how is she ? Is she alright? he asked in a rush
I stared at him not knowing what to say, I know Chase too well, he couldn’t handle bad news. telling him Candy is still at the ICU might run him completely crazy …….
how is she? he repeated
She is fine, the doctors are still attending to her. I said picking my words
He stared at me without saying anything….
Are you alright brother? I asked and he shook his head slowly
If anything should happen to her, I will never forgive myself . he said as tears rolled down his eyes …
Oh Chase! I pulled him into a hug
She will be alright bro, i am sure of it….
his phone suddenly buzzed indicating a text message and he disengaged from the hug to check the message
he clicked on it and I saw his eyes widened in shock
What is it bro? I asked and he handed me the phone
I stared blankly at the phone not believing what i Just read
“Andy is Roxy lover, I caught both of them having sex”
What! I exclaimed in shock
I clicked on the message to check the sender, it was his mum…
how did she know about it? I asked Chase , I was still finding it hard to believe that my mum would stoop so low to sleep with my manager….
You read it there, she said she caught them. he responded dryly
Andy is a bastard! I cursed and Chase huffed
he is more than a bastard
Yes he is more than a bastard. I agreed, he killed my mother and shot my sister, it is time to make the beast pay ……:
