“Hope there’s no issue, Sir?”
“She hasn’t stopped bleeding, young lady.” The Doctor said.
“So, what’s the next thing to do, Sir?” She asked instantly.
“Em.. I think we have to get blood from the blood bank as soon as possible.” The Doctor replied.
“Hey, Kate!” He waved as Katherine opened the door slowly.
“Prince, come in.”
“I don’t know exactly why that Margaret is happy. Now, she is pregnant! She must not give birth oh!”
“Who’s the Queen? That one is not a Queen! Kate, I want you to help me at revenging. She’s nothing but a traitor! I want to finish her!”
Katherine sighed. “Whatever you wish to do, I’ll help you. I also hate traitors and can’t withstand someone like her.
The Prince grinned. “Thanks, My love.”

“Who can that be?” Nicholas asked Henry quietly.
“Dial his mobile number.” Craig whispered.
“And did we really hear a voice from this room?” Craig muttered, clenching his wrists.
“Hmmn.. Craig, I think we should get going. At least, if you get to someone’s place and the person isn’t around or probably not ready to unlock the door, you leave!”
Craig gazed at Doris. “Alright, let’s just go.” He said as he led the way and both walked out.
“I’m having an unusual feeling that something will happen, or probably happening.” He said.
Henry chuckled. “It’s normal, just forget it. All will be fine.”
“No!” He exclaimed. “I’m not referring to Craig and Doris now, I think this is referring to Vivian.” He said.
“Vivian?” Henry asked again.
“Henry, I think we have to go to that hospital now.” Nicholas sprung to his feet.
As he drove out and continued driving on the track, a car began to follow him.

Nicholas drove on. His mind was just on Vivian as he kept driving. “Honestly, that really happened, Henry. I don’t know why but I think something is happening to her.” He said to him.
“I am not annoyed. By the way, you have said that before. So, just drive on.” Henry replied him.
Henry glanced at him and stroke his beard. “I only hope you will see her today.”
Nicholas shook his head quickly. “No, Henry.” He protested.
Henry chuckled as he clasped his hands together. “So what is now the essence of going there when you know you’ll not show yourself to her today again?” He accused.
“You know too now, Henry. Just help me with this.”
“So, what do I do now? I will be the one to go inside that place to do the talking, right?”
Nicholas winked. “As usual now.”
“Alright.” Henry waved his hand.
Nick smiled. “Thanks.”

The car kept following the two. It seemed the driver had an ulterior motive for following the two guys who never knew a car had been after them. Nicholas parked his vehicle outside the hospital while Henry came down and walked inside the hospital quickly.
He looked at his left and right quickly before he went to the nurse he saw at the reception and asked after Vivian. “I would want to see her.” He said.
The nurse already saw him when he came before, she just told him the ward where she was and continued with her own work.
Henry walked as fast as he could, looking for the ward until he finally found it and entered into the ward. He could see Vicky, her face wasn’t showing happiness at all.
“What is wrong?” He asked.
“She’s in need of blood.” She replied him instantly.
“Blood?” Henry repeated as he stood akimbo, looking down. “Have they carried out the test to know the blood group? Can you donate, or can I?” He quickly asked.
“The Doctors are already searching for blood group in the blood bank. I hope we get one soon.” She replied him.
Henry moved closer to her bed and looked at her. “You’ll be fine, ma’am.” He said to her.
“Thank you.” Vicky said to him.
He smiled and nodded. “I’ll be right back.” He said to Vicky and stepped out of the ward to tell Nicholas about what was happening inside.
“Guy, will you donate for her?” Nicholas just asked as soon as he told him what was happening.
Henry looked at him for a moment. “Why will I? You are the one who’s meant to do that for her.” He replied.
“I don’t want my identity to be leaked, Henry. Please, just do this for me.”
“Nick, you should know this is not an easy thing to do. This is a blood issue! What if we don’t have the same blood group? And I’m O-positive, I am not a universal donor.” He replied.
“That’s true.” He squinted his face. “Her blood group is ‘A’. What do we do now?”
“I heard that they have already gone in search of blood at the blood bank.”
“I can help you donate, if you wish.” A voice said beside the car.
It was Doris.

James walked to his bar and picked up a wine glass. He sat on the barstool and poured some wine into the wine glass cup. He dropped the wine glass cup and sighed. He hadn’t been able to get the issue of his friends out of his mind since, wondering who The Unknown who had been uncloaking the truth was.
On the other hand, he felt his friends were not smart enough to have been caught by ‘an ordinary guy’ called The Unknown. He sipped from the cup and exposed his brown set of teeth.
“I can never be caught by any fool who’s jobless. I cannot!” He suddenly said.
“Mike.” He called out as loud as he could.
A young guy, in his late twenties who was dressed in a brown suite and a sunshade came around, walking briskly.
“Yes, Sir.” He said.
“You have seen yourself how my friends have been caught by that lunatic who calls himself The Unknown, haven’t you?”
“Yes, Sir.” The guy replied.
James stood up from the barstool, laughing. “I think the guy is just after we directors of that company. I know all eyes are on the company directors now, just because he wants to claim he’s a superman or something.”
There was a brief silence, Mike was standing heftily as he bowed down his head, listening to James attentively. “I don’t know if I am on his list, but I don’t know why this feeling has been coming since yesterday that I am one of his targets. I want you to tighten the security of the house more than before, have you heard?” He moved closer to Mike, placing his hand on his left shoulder.
“As you wish, Sir.”
James just burst into laughter and went to sit down back.

“Doris?” Nicholas said softly, with his eyes unblinking as he stared at her.
“Nick, it is me.” She replied, opening the rear door and hopped into the car. She slammed the door back and swallowed. “Nick, I need the truth from you so that everything would be easier for you. Are you The Unknown?”
Nicholas turned his head slowly and looked at Henry. There was a total silence.
