A STOLEN KISS FROM THE CEO! - Season 2 Episode 26
Luke Robinson glared at the face of the man staring into the camera and stating the obvious silly question.
“Of course, it’s a camera, idiot! Where is my cherished Ariella?”
“Shit!” He cursed out loud when he looked down at the mess his semen had made. He quickly picked up some tissue and cleaned himself up. He zipped up his suit pants, stood up, and walked into his private gent; where he further cleaned himself up.
“Man, you have to compose yourself and stop thinking about her. She is married and will never be yours. Her husband is a beast and would kill anyone who looks at his wife the way you do.” Luke stared into the mirror as he kept admonishing himself.
“Get another lady to distract you and pour out all your sexual fantasy on her.” He smiled at the taught of devouring another lady in Ariella’s place consumed his being.
Feeling more composed and back to his former self, Luke walked back into his office and sat down. He replayed the recorded streamed video and noticed that Silvia ripped off the camera.
“F**k! What a stupid but dead b**ch! You already took the drug, so, there is no way you are going to say anything or survive this.” Luke’s eyes burned with fury.
Even though the screen was blank for some time, the audio was still active. Hence, he heard all that was been said and was happy that Silvia didn’t get the chance to say anything incriminating.
Luke had earlier lied to Silvia that the pill he gave her was like a sleeping drug. He said it would only make her temporarily pass out as though she was dead, but she would regain consciousness after two hours. He told her that it was better to be pronounced dead for the success of the mission than to be caught and tortured by Leon.

However, Silvia was not meant to survive the poisonous drug. Taking the drug was like swallowing concentrated sulphuric acid. Immediately the drug touches anything liquid, its chain reactivity kicks up.
The drug was specially formulated by one of Luke’s evil scientists, back at his former base. Its efficacy had been tested on so many lab rats; which included captured humans and animals. Its corrosiveness was extreme and the victims usually die within four minutes of ingestion.
“Thanks for a job well done Silvia!” Luke clasped his hand and rubbed both palms together. “May your rotten soul burn in hell!” He grinned devilishly. “All I have to do now is wait for the dust to settle and make my move.”
Luke stood up and walked towards the wine shelf in his office. He poured himself a glass of wine and took gradual sips. He walked towards the floor-to-ceiling window and stared at the men; who were making the finishing touches to his company’s new brand name. He smiled as he lifted his glass into the air and said;
“Cheers to the AR brand. In due time, you will be reborn and take over the fashion and retail world.”
Ella sat back in her office feeling a bit relieved after speaking with Leon. Even though Leon had encouraged her that the perpetrators of the crime would be caught, she was still horrified at the thought of someone watching the live-streaming video Silvia made.
Another thing that broke her heart was watching Silvia in her final moment. From the dreadful look in Silvia’s eyes, she had no intentions of dying that day. It was as if she was shocked by the effect of the pill she had swallowed.
“Who was Silvia working for? Did Kyle put her up to this? Would Kyle kill his niece just to get back at her? Why do bad things keep happening around me? Am I cursed?” A thousand questions bombarded Ella’s head, causing it to ache. She massaged her forehead and took some bottled water to calm her spiraling thought.
The intercom on her desk rang, causing her to tremble a little. She picked up the phone and said; “hello.”

“Hello, ma’am, a man named Sky with two other scary-looking men are here to see you,” Joan said in a hushed voice as though someone had a knife to her throat.
“Let them in,” Ella said curtly and dropped the phone.
“Good day Mrs. Treshvire. I hope you’re doing great.” Sky forced his face to curve into a brief polite smile, which quickly disappeared like it was never there. Smiling was never designed for the likes of him and sometimes it made him wonder about the pleasure people derived from smiling foolishly.
The other two men behind Sky, who looked like trained combat soldiers, also greeted curtly.
Ella responded to all their greetings and focused her attention on only Sky.
“It’s good to have you around, Sky,” She smiled. “I am fine, thanks for asking. I guess my husband sent you over.”
“Yes, he did. If you don’t mind, I would like to do a quick sweep of your office. We want to be double sure that no bug was planted in it.”
“A bug!” Ella’s eyes shone in bewilderment. Her eyes unconsciously darted around, searching for anything unfamiliar. “Silvia couldn’t have done that, I was staring at her the whole time!”
“Don’t worry about that, ma’am,” Sky tried to reassure her. “It’s just a routine check. I’m sure the dead lady didn’t get the chance to do that.”
“Okay, I’ll leave you now to do your work. I will just pick some snacks and go over to my friend’s office.” Ella smiled. “When you are done, instruct my secretary, Joan, to call me.”
“Thank you, ma’am. Sorry for the inconvenience.”
Ella nodded in reply. When she tried standing up, her legs felt frail and she instantly slummed back on her seat. She suddenly felt dizzy and nauseous at the same time. Her breathing became heavy and cold sweat beaded her forehead. Her eyes were spinning fast and her head was drumming heavily. She could hear Sky asking some questions but his voice seemed to be fading away.
“Wait, don’t got yet! You haven’t checked for bugs.” She said in a whisper as the light turned dim and finally dark around her.
“Shit!” Sky cursed out loud as he swiftly sent for help to rush Ella to the hospital. “The boss is going to be furious!”
