Ronald shook his head in negation.
They felt hopeful again as they saw Paul approaching them. However, he showed his thumbs down from the distance.
“Go and find her! Don’t comeback until you have her” Christopher shouted at them furiously.
Christopher’s phone then rang.
“ Hello?” Christopher answered the phone without showing any interest in having a conversation.
“Hey, it’s Anthony” the voice said from the other end.
It was Anthony, John and Nancy’s class mate.
“Yeah, Anthony” Christopher responded weakly.
“I have arranged a special treat for you” Anthony said sinisterly.
“Look, we are not in a mood to be messed about with right now” Christopher said.
“Then this might help you calm down. A new girl in this town is being sent to a place for you to enjoy.”
“A girl? New in the town? Wait... Is she with her boyfriend?” Christopher asked.
“ Does she have dimples on her cheeks? “
“Yes” Anthony answered.
“Does she have a lion tattoo on her arm?”
“ Yes, but how do you know?” Anthony asked with surprise.
“ Hey, it’s the same girl Ronald, Paul, Steve and I have been trying to find all morning! Just now she escaped from us.”
Their faces blinked with happiness.
“ Really?” Anthony asked with surprise.
“ You've done a good job. We have been looking for her desperately. Tell us where she is. Tell us and we'll give you anything you want.” Christopher seemed to be in very happy mood now.
“Which you'll deny later on.” Anthony expressed his doubt.
“ No, it’s a promise.” Christopher was now the happiest man on earth.
“Two thousand dollars from each of you.” Anthony decided to take full advantage of the situation.
“ Done” Christopher agreed without any consideration.
