William stormed into his room as he ran his hand through his hair. It going to be really difficult to get Veronica out of this, first she was framed by the drug lord for Killing her Aunt and he hasn’t even gathered enough evidence to proof her innocence In that aspect and now this.

 

“I hope you will stay away from her after this” William turned his back abruptly as he made direct eye contact with Catherine

 

“Catherine, you, why will you?”

 

“Unlike you, I do not forgive easily William, It obvious Veronica is no good for you. I am doing the right thing by protecting to you”

 

“By getting her arrested for what she didn’t even do?”

 

“It temporary, the police will release her very soon.” She said as she crossed her arm and walked towards William “you might think you are all grown up now William,but I know what best for you and Veronica is the opposite of that”

 

“Of all people, it shouldn’t have been you Catherine. I thought you were the only person who understands me and my feelings after Grandmother”

 

 

“I am doing this because of you, because I love you.Veronica is not good for you”

 

“I do not want to talk about that right….please leave now Catherine” William said

 

and Catherine nodded. Catherine was the last person he expected that from and he has no idea what could have prompted her to do and say that.

 

“I will be leaving for paris today and will be back in 2 days ” she said and walked away when she did not receive any response from William

 

“You did the right thing” Chelsea said to Catherine immediately she walked out of the room.

 

“I don’t feel right Chelsea”

 

“I know you might hate me alot because you think I am trying to steal your brother from Veronica or something but that is not true, yes I love William alot that why I do not want a girl like Veronica around him”

 

“I understand, so what do you think I should do next”

 

“William will surely listen to you, tell him to get married to someone else as soon as possible”

 

“So you want him to get married you ”

 

“Not necessarily me Catherine, anyone of your choice. As long as she is perfect for William”

 

FLASHBACK

 

“Where is William?” Catherine asked one of the helps.

 

“He told me to tell you that he will be back,he went to visit Mrs Morgan”

 

“Okay” Catherine said with a forced smile

 

 

“Seriously Catherine is this what you want ?” Chelsea asked out of the blues as CATHERINE turns to face her.

 

“What are you doing here? Why are you always here”

 

“Came to visit Beatrice”

 

“Okay that great now get out”

 

“You might not like me but trust me catherine 100% better than Veronica”

 

“Do not compare yourself to Veronica you are nothing like her in fact she’s better that you in every way possible”

 

“is that what you think Veronica does not love William she’s only feeling guilty right now because she felt she was the reason grandmother died”

 

“What do you mean ?”

 

“If she truly loves William , why did she refuse to forgive him back then. Why did she only forgive him when grand mother died” Catherine looked away from Chelsea as she thought of the matter

 

“Think of what your brother will go through when Veronica breaks his heart again. Do you think he will be able to recover. Instead of you trying to be a good sister by supporting his every little action. For once do something that will help his life.

 

Keep away from Veronica, he will learn to move on eventually. At least it better you do that before things get too deep. It up to you to decide this Catherine. Excuse me ”

 

Catherine thought of this for awhile as tears rolled down her eyes .she can’t bare to see her brother in pains. He meant the entire World to her and if Veronica is going to be the reason for his pains, he will keep her away from him no matter what.

 

FLASHBACK OVER

 

 

Here you go” William handed over a lotion to Veronica to rub her wrist since it was feeling a little dry due to the handcuffs that were around her wrist for awhile. Williams just got her released from jail and now his car is parked in front of her house obviously not looking happy at all.

 

“William ” Veronica called his name

 

“Yes”

 

“Are you okay.. or are you maybe upset with me . You know I did not kill Grandmother, I do not even know why the police arrested me when they have no evidence…”

 

“It is okay Veronica. Let forget about that okay.”

 

“Okay” she said as she got down from his car. Williams also got down from the car

 

“I will be on my way now” she said while William smiled lightly, moved closer to her, cupped her face in his and planted a soft kiss on her .

 

“Good night” he said while Veronica smiled and walked into her house leaving William behind. She looked through her window and William was Still standing outside. She waved at him while he waved back just before she closed the curtain and laid down on her bed. She closed her eyes for a second and suddenly opened it when she felt something squeezing her neck. She opened her eyes and saw a figure in the dark as the unknown figure continue strangling the life out of her.. Veronica could not scream as her hand roughly search the table looking for what she can use as a defense. Her hand finally landed on the table Vase as she picked it up and hit it on the mysterious person .

 

Whoever it was immediately let go of her as the mysterious killer fell on the floor in pain.

 

Veronica ran out of the house screaming William and William who was about to leave already suddenly stopped and got out of his car

 

 

“Veronica, what wrong with you ?” William asked looking worried as Veronica couldn’t stop crying and panicking. ” Who did this to you ?” He asked when he saw red hand print around and a few scratches on her neck

 

“William there is someone in my house”

 

“What”

 

“There is someone in my house, they tried to kill me William” she said crying

 

“Hey it okay calm down ” William said as he hugged Veronica ” just calm down. I will go check what is in there”

 

“No no no William do not go in there, please ”

 

“Do not worry i will be fine”

 

“Then I am coming with you”

 

“What why ,you just wait out here for me”

 

“You can’t convince me otherwise William, I am coming with you ” she insisted while William smiled and held her by the hand.

 

He got into her apartment and switched on the light, there was nobody there except blood stains and broken vase

 

“See I told you. There was someone here. He tried to kill me so I hit this Vase on his head for defense”

 

“It okay, I will call the police now” he said as he checked the bathroom and kitchen and there was no one there ” whoever did this must have escaped when you ran out of the building”

 

“Yes,they must have….William I can’t stay here tonight , what if he comes back

 

and tries to kill me ”

 

“No one will kill you and besides I can’t allow you stay here either”

 

“Uhn ”

 

“You are coming with me tonight, the police will be here in few minutes”

 

Veronica picked up her little puppy as she nodded. The little dog also looked as terrified as she was and beside there was little he could do in such situation since he was just a pet dog.

 

“Come on , let go”

 

“To where ”

 

“To my place Veronica. You can’t stay here anymore” he said while Veronica nodded and agreed to follow him.

 

Whoever the unknown person who tried to kill her was. Even though he did not achieve his goals this time around. He won’t stop until he finally put a stop to her life

 

It seems Veronica Hathaway has a lot of enemies
