COLD HEARTED Episode 25-26

Christina's POV
I saw the girl and Noah in the compound. The way they were chatting and laughing irritates me.
I called mum later the day I left their house and asked her about ellie. She told me ellie is one their cook's daughter. What in the world did noah see in her? She far out of his league. Her class is so low from his. Does the girl seduced him? This is so crazy. She's so much annoying I wish I could kill her for good to stop seeing that irritating ugly face. I was watching them from where I stood with my friends. "Look at the way Noah is laughing. What could they be talking about? That girl is so strong. She looks like she won't back off easily"Mina said. "And you think that'll be possible? She's dealing with me. She's dealing with Christiana. You think she'll survive it with me. Noah will have to come back to me no matter what. I'll make sure of that."I said looking at them. "Let the game begin now!"I said looking at the girls. "Ok"they said. "You guys know what to do right?"I asked. "Of course we do"Mina said and they left. I watched ellie leave noah and David heading towards class. I smiled to myself nodding my head. "You'll regret ever been in competition with me"I said laughing erratically.

Ellie's POV
I stood their staring at them. Some of my note books were missing and I know they're the one that took it. "You guys are really crossing the line. I know you took my note books. I don't know whatever you guys want to do with it but it's so important to me It'll be better if you return it"I said looking at them one after the other. "Oh she said she's looking for her notebooks. Has anyone found it among you?"Mina asked looking at the other two other girls. "I don't think I found it"Lizzy said. "What of you, did you found it?"she asked turning to Lydia. "Notebooks? I think I found it"she said smiling at me. I sighed and moved closer to her. "Look here Lydia. Those notebooks means a lot to me. It'll be good if you just hand them over."I said to her in a calm voice. "I said I think I found it does that means they are with me? No. I just think i saw it in the old storage room down there"she said pointing at the direction. This girls are so evil. How could they keep my note books there? I thought to myself feeling angry. I looked at them badly before walking down towards the storage room.

Christina's POV
I adjusted my uniform well and walked up to where noah and David were sitting. I got to them and they both looked up at me. "Christiana"David called my name smiling. But noah starred off not saying anything. "Hy noah."I said waving my hand at him. He stood up not responding to my greeting. "I'll see you later guy. I have to go"he said and wanted to leave. "Are you leaving because of me? Why? You hate me that much?"I asked. He turned back facing me. "Not that. I have something important I must attend to. Mind you, I was planning to leave before you got here so, don't get this wrong"he said looking at me. "Was it because of that you didn't respond to my greeting too?"I asked. "Well that's a different case. I only responds to greetings of those who it's due to. Not senseless people"he said looking straight in my eyes. "Senseless people like me?"I asked staring at him. "I didn't mention anyone's name did I? So don't misinterpret me"he said. He walked off leaving David and I. That got me more angrier. "Christiana don't mind what he said ok. I think he's still upset over what I told him before you came"David said apologizing on his behalf. "I understand. You don't have to worry"I said and also left.
"By doing all this you think it would help the situation? You have no choice but to choose me last. Just wait for it"I thought to myself.
"By now, you beloved one and only ellie would be in a big trouble"I said laughing out loud as I headed to class.

Ellie's POV
When I got to the storage room, I started looking for my notes. After searching for a while, I found them on a desk been soaked wet. I picked them up looking angry. "How dare you guys do this to my notes?"I said angrily looking at it. I tried going out of the storage room and the door was shut by someone I didn't see. I rushed there hitting my hands on the door. "Open the door. Someone is here. Open the door"I screamed hitting the door hard. No one answered or open it. I wonder who closed it. "Please open the door someone is here"I said panting heavily but still no response. I brought out my phone to call noah but my battery was dead. "Oh my God. Why now? What's happening?"I asked feeling bad. I knocked on the door again but no one answer. The storage room is so stuffy and there were lot of dusts. The windows were shut too nowhere to peep through. Students don't usually come to the storage room because it was abandoned long time ago. And I heard it was abandoned because a student was killed here while her friends were bullying her. She was locked here till the following morning. Because she was an asthmatic patient, she died of suffocation. And her corpse was discovered the following morning by one of the teachers who came there for something. The story was so scary when Anita was telling me about it. I didn't know I'll also end up here. I turned back and was looking around the dark storage room. "Am I gonna end up like her?"I asked myself almost crying. I knock on the door and hit it multiple time but no one heard me or open it. I started crying calling for help. "Please open the door. Please!"I said crying. I tried switching on my phone but it was switched off again due to empty battery. I cried more now getting scared of the place. I stood close to the door looking around. "What will happen to me? I can't die here will I?"I said crying out. "Somebody please help me out of here. Please help me. Someone is locked her"I said crying. I bent down on my kneels crying burying my face down in my arms. I heard some rustling sound among the stuffs packed together and I quickly raised up my head moving back to the wall. If it's possible to enter the wall, I will. I started looking around in fear as tears rolled down my cheek. I think the girl's ghost might pop out to me anytime. The worst part of it was I couldn't see anything clearly in the dark. The rustling became more closer and louder. I then saw a figure before me. I closed my eyes and screamed out on top of my voice.

Noah's POV
it's closing hour, I was waiting in my car for Ellie's arrival. I waited and waited but there were not sign of her. "What's keeping her so long? Is she busy again?"I asked myself. I waited another 20 minutes and I still didn't see her. "What could be keeping her this long?"I said reaching for my phone. I called her number but it was switched off. "What's happening? Why's her phone switched off?"I said and decided to go and search for her in the class. Only few students were left in the compound. Most of them has left for home.
"She's too late today. What could be keeping her?"I said heading towards the school building. I met Christiana and her friends as I was about to walk into their class. I walked pass her heading in. "Noah!"she called my name. I stopped and faced her. "Any problem?"I asked looking at them. "Not at all. I just wonder why you're going inside"she said. "And is that any of your business?"I asked staring at her. "Oh. Are you looking for ellie? I saw her went out a while ago probably going home. I think she left already. No one is in the class as you can see"she said pointing in. What's she talking about? How can ellie leave without telling me? "I'll take my leave then. Bye"she said and left with her friends.
"How can she leave the school without me? And her phone is switched off too. Is she still mad at me because of the girl I told her about? She can't possibly be mad because of that"I said looking around the classroom.


As I was looking around the classroom, something caught my eyes. "That looks like Ellie's school bag"I said moving closer to the desk. I picked up the bag wondering why it's still in school. "If she really left the school, she can't possibly go without her bag. Something is missing"I said. I opened the bag to check if it's truly hers. This is her bag. Where could she be? And her phone is switched off. how do I know where she is? I left the classroom heading out to the compound.

Ellie's POV
The figure I saw was a cat. It stood before me then ran through the stuffs and went up in the broken ceiling. I got more scared looking around the creepy place. I just pray someone will notice am here and come to my rescue. I can't die here like this. "Why are you doing this to me at this time? Why?"I said crying while looking at my phone. I checked my wristwatch and found out it's 5:10 already. Students would have all gone home. No one would be in school by now. "Help me. Someone is locked here. Anyone out there? please help!"i said crying while hitting the door. I went to the window to see if I can open it. I jacked it hard but it was too strong to break or open. I remembered I have a pin in my hair. I removed it and quickly straightened it. I went to the door and inserted it in the key hole. I twisted the pin in the key hole but it refused to open. "Why is this not working? Why? It works in TVs. Why is it not working for me"I said and violently threw the pin away hitting the door hard. "Please save me! Please someone is stucked here"I said crying out loud. I heard some footsteps coming towards the door and I hit it again to get the person's attention. "Who's that? Someone is here. Please open this door"I said hitting the door. The footsteps stopped when the person got to the door. I could see the snicker he/she was putting on, because the door has a space below. "Someone is here. Can you open the door please? I know someone is out there can you please open this door?"I said shouting. The person bent down and threw something under the door. It rolled in and stopped beside me. It looks like some gas can. The content inside it started fliting in the whole storage room. "What's is this? Please open the door"I said hitting it. The person turned and left the doorstep heading back to whereever they come from. I was inhaling the gas as it flit around the room. I started coughing still hitting the door. "Pl...please...help!"my voice became weaker. I looked back at the can still coughing. Everywhere became blur and the gas was burning my throat. It was suffocating me and I found it hard to breath properly. I fell to the ground and stretched my hand out in the tiny space under the door crawling on the floor. "Help!"I said but my voice was too weak. I started crying and coughing holding my neck. Am I gonna die here? I can't leave mum in that state. I can't die just now. I thought to myself crying.
I remembered how mum was very happy the first day I was coming to school and how she told me to watch out for bad kids. I remembered the story Anita told me about the girl that died here due to suffocation. Am I gonna end up like her? What of mum, will I leave her just like this? And noah, is this the end of us? I thought to myself crying. My body became weaker and I couldn't breath again. I heard someone calling my name and hitting the door with something. The voice sounds like it was some distance far away from me. I suddenly noticed some reflection of lights shining into my eyes which was shutting gradually. Someone took me in their arms calling my name. My views were too blur, I couldn't see the face clearly but I know who it is. My eyes shut and that was all I could remember.

Before the door was opened..
Noah's POV
I was heading back to the compound to search for her. But heard some footsteps behind me. I looked back and saw someone go through a corner. He was not putting on a school uniform so he's probably not a student or might be a student. The school is empty what could he still be looking for. I followed him but when I got to the corner, I couldn't find him again. I looked around but he was no where to be found. "Why am I even after him?"I said and was heading back to the compound. I tripped and wanted to fall but got hold of myself again. Something is strange. What could be happening? I have a strange feeling about that guy. I turned back and traced him. I check each classroom but couldn't find him. "Did he disappeared?"I said looking around. Shortly, I heard some noise from the old storage room. "What's happening? Is someone there?"i asked myself looking at the door which was the fourth door from where I was standing. The noise became louder as someone was hitting the door from inside. I think someone is inside. I looked around and everywhere was quiet. No single student in the building everybody went home. I was afraid move closer to the door due to the story I heard about it. But I couldn't help as the noise was becoming louder and unbearable. I quickly walked towards the door still feeling nervous. As I got closer, I couldn't hear anything again. Whatever it's there, I have to find out. I stopped by the door and knocked on it placing my ear closer. "Is anyone there? Is someone inside?"I asked knocking. But I suddenly saw someone's hand beside my Snickers. I moved back in fear thinking Its trying to pull my leg. But the wristwatch looks familiar. "Ellie?"I said and quickly bend down holding her hand. "Ellie! Are you in there? Can you hear me?"I asked holding her hand. I stood up and tried opening the door but it was locked. I tried opening it with force but it was too strong to break. I started looking for object to break padlock used to lock it. I searched in the waste and found some keys there. I picked it up and rushed back to the door. "Ellie hang on please. I'll open the door now"i said with my body trembling in fear. I inserted one of the key in the padlock to open it but it isn't working. I then tried another key and still the same. I threw the keys away looking for object to break it. I finally saw a metal after a long search. I hit it on the padlock multiple times until it broke and the padlock fell down. I opened the door in a rush and went taking her in my arms looking so sick worried and scared of the situation."Elli
e! Ellie why are you like this? Get up please"I asked taking her up. Her uniform was messed up with dust and her hair too. I started coughing due to the harmful gas that was released in there. I carried her in my arms and took her out of the storage room. "Ellie please open your eyes. Ellie!"I called her name. "Who in the world did this to you? Why are you lying here like this? Please get up"I said almost crying. I carried her up in my arms and headed out to my car in a rush. The remaining few students in the compound were all looking at me as I took her in wondering what happened to her. I ignored them all and drove out in speed.

Ellie's POV
I opened my eyes and the first person I first saw was noah. He was sitting on a stood beside me. I looked around and found out I was in the hospital. "Ellie are you awake? It's me your mum"mummy said moving closer to my bed. "Are you ok? Can you see me?"noah asked looking worried. "I nodded my head at both of them smiling. The doctor got in and checked me up. "How's she? Is she perfectly ok?"noah asked the doctor. "Yes sir. Good thing you brought her in time. She inhaled a very harmful gas chemical. If you didn't arrive on time she won't have survived it cause it would damage her lungs and she would have suffocated to d..."
"It's ok doctor. Thank God she's ok and nothing like that happen."noah said cutting the doctor short. "I'll still give her some medications tonight so, She won't be able to go home today. Tomorrow would be better"the doctor said. "Ok doctor. Thank you so much"mum said. The doctor left and noah came back to me. "Thank you so much young master. If it's not for you, I don't know what would have happen to my poor Ellie. Thank you so much"mum said crying.
"It's ok ma. She'll be fine"noah said holding her hands. Mum looked at me and I nodded my head smiling.
Soon mum left leaving noah and I behind.
I wonder how he found me there. And I wonder who shut the door and the person that threw in the gas. What could I have done to deserve such. What if noah didn't arrive, will I end up dead?
"How in the world did you end up been in that room? What took you there in the first place?"noah asked me. "I went there for my note books. But as I wanted to leave, the door was shut on me by someone I dont know"I replied.
"Your notebooks? How does it got there?"he asked. I narrated everything to him on how my books were stolen. And how the girls told me it'll be in the storage room. I told him about the person that threw the gas in too.
"Who do you think could be behind all this?"I asked. "Don't worry, I know the person behind it and I promise not to let it go this time. I'll make sure she experience the same thing you passed through"noah said in anger. He stood up and took his car key heading out. "Noah!"I called his name and he stopped but not looking back at me. "Please am begging you. Don't do anything you'll regret later. Just let anyone who did this to me face their own karma. If you do anything to them, it could get you also in trouble."I said looking at him. "Trouble?What does that mean? Look at where the evil act end up putting you? What if I didn't arrive on time? What would have happen to you? They are so heartless and deserve to be punished for this"he said raising his voice in anger. "I won't just let this go. If you forgive them, I won't ever do the same. I'll make them pay the price to this"he said and opened the door. "Noah please. Do this for my sake at least. We have no evidence they do this to me yet. Please calm down and listen to me for once"I said almost crying. He turned back looking at me. Just then, someone opened the door and walks in, in a rush. "Noah are you ok? Nothing is wrong with you right? You're not hurt anywhere."Christiana asked looking worried. Noah was staring at her with a strange expression written on his face. I was also staring at her wondering why she came to the hospital. "I heard there was an accident and you came to the hospital. I came to check if you're ok. Thank God you're perfectly fine"she said smiling. Noah looked at me then looked back at her with an unknown expression.
