Echoes of the past Episode 12


SCOTRYL COMPANY BERYL’S OFFICE : As Beryl was about texting her address to Kayla, another call came in through her phone.

‘’Who could this be?’’ she muttered impatiently as she accepted the call and placed the phone to her ear.

‘’Hello miss Beryl! Do you remember me?’’ the person asked from the other end.

‘’I don’t think I do coz this number is strange in my phone,’’ Beryl replied. The caller laughed a bit before speaking up

‘’This is Raymond.’’ Beryl began to shudder in fright,

‘’Raymond?’’ she repeated. ‘’How did you get my number?’’ she asked.

‘’Wow! Forget about that,’’ Raymond giggled. ‘’Now I have your details, I will make sure I make your life miserable.’’

‘’Remember you hurt and left me heartbroken. What else do you want?’’ She asked in fear.

‘’I hurt you, yes, accepted. But was that enough reason for your father to use my brother and his wife for rituals in order to succeed in life?’’ Raymond asked with anger in his voice. Beryl was shocked to her marrow at what she heard, her only past she regretted was sleeping with different kinds of men and having two abortions for Raymond which left her without a womb.

‘’What are you insinuating?’’ she asked.

‘’Really!’’ Raymond exclaimed. ‘’Continue pretending but bear it in mind that I’m coming for you,’’ he said and hung up.

‘’Hello, hello… please listen,’’ Beryl pleaded but the line was dead. She was lost on what to do, so she just dropped the phone and began to shed tears… :

Gavin walked into Beryl’s office, unrestricted. He was surprised to meet her with her head bent on the desk and from the way she sniffed showed she was crying.
