Web Of Mistakes Prologue


“Help me!”
The words were uttered softly but with desperation as Jessica ran away from the man chasing her.He was to be her killer.The cloud grew darker and as lightening flashed, the storm increased. The rain poured down from the sky heavily like gun fires coming from the barrel of a pistol. Wearing a black jacket, a black jean, and a black mask, covering his face, preventing Jessica from knowing who he was. He held a dagger on his right hand point forward and running after Jessica. His mission was to kill her and leave no evidence behind-not even a clue. He couldn’t afford to miss this opportunity, he had been paid already. The money could be used for a lot of things, to buy a car, a house, have a mistress…….. So many things. He just had to kill her.
The storm made it impossible for anyone to hear the cries of Jessica. She couldn’t let anyone kill her that way, she wanted to escape. Death was her enemy. She was scared to die. Just one wish. . . . . If only that was possible-To meet face to face with death and fight it with her fists.
The footsteps of her supposed to be killer distracted her thoughts. She ran faster as she could. She’d never ran that way her entire life. Silently she prayed someone would come for her rescue. No one did, for all where in their houses already in bed but if not. . .warming themselves up and getting ready for bed. Suddenly, she saw a caravan not too far from where she was. She turned back and her pursuer was at least 20 feet from where she was. She hurriedly ran towards the caravan and hid besides it. She had to wait and rest and regain her strength. She lay on the floor breathlessly. There gazing at the sky, the cloud darker than she had ever seen before. Was the cloud already mourning her? She thought scared to move or even say a word. Her mind went back to how the day was spent, a wonderful day. How could it just end on a sour note?

**** **** *FLASHBACK*** **** ****
Gring, gring, the telecom rang almost the fifth time. Jessica had been in the bathroom. As she was out, she went to answer the call.
“Hi, Jess, where have you been?”, came a sweet soft voice over the phone.
“Having my bath.”
“Oh, well, lets do lunch today.”
“You sure?”
“Hmm, yeah. At the Italian restaurant.”
“You wanna do Italian?”
“Okay. By 2, right?”
Jessica dropped the telecom. As she headed for her wardrobe to dress up, it rang again.
“S–t!” cursed Jessica.
“Miss Jack?” called a female voice.
“Oh, yes, Maureen”, replied Jessica.
“There’s an emergency.”
“How serious is it?”
“Not bad, but we need professionals like you.”
“Isn’t Richmond there?”
“No ma’am.”
“I’ll be there in a jiffy”
Her day had been ruined! Can’t another doc do the job? Jessica thought. She had planned to do shopping with her mother who was her number one best friend. After that, do lunch with Shirley her best friend, spend the remaining day with her family. Of course, she had taken permission from the hospital head to be away for two weeks precisely. Why is she needed now? She couldn’t discern why she was called because other doctors were on duty. Opening the wardrobe, she took out a blue jean pants, white sleeveless top and blue heels. Hurriedly, she dressed up.
“Mum, good morning”, Jessica called out to her mum.
“Are you ready now for shopping?” asked a woman who was fair in complexion with brown eyes and pink lips probably in her early fifties.

“Can’t. Hospital needs me”
“What! Thought you took permission from the head.”
“I did, just got a call now, I think its pretty serious.”
“Okay, be careful.”
“I’ll be.”
Jessica dashed out of the house, grabbing her keys. The car was a Toyota Camry, dark blue in color. She got it from her parents as a surprise gift when she graduated from the university. A day she would never forget

“We’re glad you could make it”, Maureen said to Jessica immediately as she walked into the hospital building.
“It’s nothing, I came as fast as I could.”
The drive from the house to the hospital was 20 minutes or less. The ride had been smooth and cool. Her only worry was that her day with her mum was cancelled. It took a very long period of time to keep that day aside for her mum and now. . . .
“I’m sorry, Jess,” Maureen called out, breaking into her thoughts. “I promise I’ll make it up to you.”
“Thank you, Maureen.”

“Kisses to you my beauty”, Shirley blew kisses to Jessica as she walked towards her at the Italian restaurant.
“Hi Shirley. How are you?”, asked Jessica smiling.
“Cool, you?”
“Is that all?”
“Yes, were you expecting something else?”
“Of course!”
“Which is . . . .?”
“An apology, you are 45 minutes late!”
“I’m sorry.”
“Tis okay.” Shirley smiled.

The waiter went to them. Dressed in cargo pants, blue in color and a long sleeve shirt with a patterned waist coat of vest to match. He took their orders, left and returned quickly. Both were served by the waiter and they started munching and crunching the food before them.
“How did your day go?” Jessica asked with her eyes roving around the restaurant. She’s been there only once or twice and a lot of things had changed. New tables, chairs, curtains. The waiters and waitresses dressing looked so funny to her. She couldn’t help it.
“. . . . . . .new clients and so on”, Shirley was saying. “But I managed to run away, just for our lunch.”
“How sweet of you”, Jessica managed to say coming back to her senses.
“I performed 3 surgeries, that explains why I came late.”
“Wow! Well, how are things after dad’s death?”
“Dominic, my cousin and I have been made heirs to dad’s business.”
“What! I thought that should be only you?”
“Well, his dad’s late and my dad promised him on his deathbed.”
“Oops!” Jessica exclaimed, covering her mouth. “Shouldn’t have said that.”
“Supposed to be a secret.”
“Well, you can count on me.”
Two tables away from Jessica and Shirley, sat a man wearing a black shirt and jeans. He watched Jessica and Shirley. It seems he was sent to spy on Jessica. Jessica said:
“Dominic, my cousin and I have been made heirs to dad’s business”, his eyes narrowed toward her to make sure it was Jessica who made that comment. Taking out his phone, he dialed a number.
“What’s up?” asked a deep male voice.
“She said it, that Dominic and herself are heirs.”
“Kill her!”
**** **** **** ****
“That was a wonderful evening!” exclaimed Shirley laughing.
“You enjoyed it!”
“Yeah! Your brother Charles is so funny and Dominic, so romantic!”
“You are falling in love?”
“Of course not!”
“She’s lively and sweet, you’re fortunate to have her.”
“That’s nice.”
“I’ll be going now.”
“Good night.”

  • “Sleep tight.”

    Jessica moved back to where her car was parked. As she moved, she heard some footsteps behind her. At first, she thought it was her imagination, suddenly the footsteps sounded close to her. She turned and behold! A man wearing a mask and holding a dagger pointing at her was in front of her. She was face to face with death!
    Staring at the clouds once more, Jessica leaned herself to the caravan. Soon enough, she heard the footsteps of the man chasing her. Quickly, she thought of what to do. Her eyes caught a heavy metal, it was as long as her legs. She picked it up, stoop up and held the metal, her grip on it was tight, close to her chest. She held it up stretching forth her hands with the metal on them. She had to fight back!
    Her dad had once taught her karate. Now was the time to display what she had learned, to show that she never took for granted her lessons.

    “Charles!” screamed Mrs Beauty Jack.
    “Mum, what’s the matter?”
    “Jessica’s not home yet!”
    “We better look for her!”
    “Mum, calm down. I’ll call Shirley and Dominic and Richmond.”
    “What if she’s not with them?” Mrs Beauty askedwith tears streaming down her cheeks.
    “I’ll call 911, just relax.”
    **** **** **** ****
    The man’s footsteps became quicker and faster. Jessica tightened her grip on the metal.
    He came face to face with her.
    Immediately, she struck him with the metal. He fell down, bleeding, he managed to get up. As he did, Jessica kicked him between his legs. He yelped in pain, fell again. She stepped on his head with her heels. He sustained serious injuries and was bleeding. He groaned in pain.
    She ran back to where her car was parked as fast as she could. She got in and drove home whimpering.
