LOVE HAPPENS CHAPTER 45

Chapter 45

    "Uhm....what are you saying?" Hudson asked Helena as she walked closer to them. The babe sure looked frail and pale like she was malnourished her whole life. Could few weeks out of luxury really make someone this pale? She looked starve in her short almost-faded blue gown which had obviously outsized her with no jewelry on. That's what you get for depending on your mother all your life, Katie thought. She was receiving her own punishment though having made the right choice, but it wasn't enough, Katie still had plans for her. She showed no mercy anymore, it's what they turned her into, now they will enjoy the fruits of their labour. "Katie is innocent, you are under the wrong assumption and I have proof to back it up. My mother is behind all of this, she is just trying to frame Katie." Helena told Hudson whose face already changed since Helena entered. Helena was taking the right step, only God knew what made her change, at least it was for the better and Katie was willing to use her to get her mother 'who would never change'. Katie's eyes met Tony's who was as eager as she to see the evidence Helena said she had. "Show us what you've got and let's see if it's enough to free Katie here." Hudson said. Helena fizzled through her purse before bringing out an envelop and her phone. She opened the envelope and showed them the content. There were pictures of Georgina, giving money to some goons in darkness but clear enough for them to see. She was obviously making a deal with them, shaking hands before leaving, the pictures showed it all. "Now here is the recording of her conversation if the pictures is not enough proof." Helena said, then she played the recording of Georgina's conversation with the dealer, instructing him to kidnap Fred immediately he got to a place which was not stated. Nice, Katie thought, this should be enough to get her out of there so she could find Fred before Georgina did anything stupid. They could really use Helena's help and she was grateful for that, while being stuck there, she wouldn't have been able to do anything.
    "Now can you see that this was the plan of my mother, to do everything and frame Katie here? She even killed Cameron." Helena said after everything. Katie smiled, she actually took a big decision to go against her mother, but that wouldn't stop her from paying for all she had done, she just reduced or let's say, bargained the price she was to pay. Katie would have laughed at that fact if the situation they were in were different. Hudson looked reluctant to work on the newly gotten evidence, why would he be reluctant to believe a lead? Katie looked at him keenly, she found out that his face looked disappointed right from when Helena showed them the evidence, why would any efficient captain or detective feel unwilling to follow the tiniest lead? Katie was right about this man not being capable, he surely didn't know what he was doing. "There is no proof to back that fact up Helena, besides, where did you get all this from?" Hudson asked to the surprise of the other three. It wasn't enough evidence? Pictures and voice recording of the culprit isn't enough evidence? "Excuse me but where and when I got the evidence isn't important right now, it is enough to get Katie out on bail, not to clear her of all charges, she is the only one who can face Georgina and bring back Fred. How is she supposed to do that if she is stuck here? Sorry but if you are really concerned about finding Fred, then you won't still be questioning me on how I got this." Helena said out of frustration with a scornful look on her face. If Katie hadn't been handcuffed, she might have hugged her. Katie had that same look too, what was wrong with this man and why was he reluctant to release her? Something was definitely wrong. "Well sorry, I need to know where you got this from so I will be sure if it's not fake, technology has advanced these days." Hudson said. "Leave that to the court to decide, right now it's not your business. I am a lawyer and I can tell you that it's her right to keep that information confidential till the case has been put to court. Let her tell the court how she got it, not you." Tony replied now, Katie knew he suspected something too. "I'm sorry, I can't release her till she tells me where she is keeping Fred, this is not enough evidence." Hudson declared. "You didn't get this much of an evidence before you apprehended me, what do you have against me? Just some witnesses and a security footage, one which didn't show how I kidnapped Fred or how I killed Cameron, none of your witnesses can't even say they saw me do any of that. So with this strong evidence, why can't you arrest Georgina too? At least you got something on her." It was Katie's turn to lash out now. She was wrong about him being inexperienced or amateurish, he was under the influence of someone, Georgina maybe. Could Georgina have paid him to keep her at bay till she finished her evil deed? That must explain why he was behaving this way. "You guys should suit yourselves, I'm outta here." Hudson said and turned to go.
    "Sure you can go, I will go to court to get bail for Katie with this evidence, it will be more than enough, went there before and they wanted only little evidence. They will give me, it will waste time but Hudson I assure you, I will complain to them about your inefficiency and your unwillingness to act on the evidence, you know what that means right? Never mind though, it will only cost you your badge." Tony said and nodded to Helena to follow him. Nice tactic huh, Katie always knew her loving boyfriend was smart. Little threat would do the trick. They both pretended like they were going until Hudson called them back. "Wait.....I'm...huh..." Hudson stammered, Katie came to his aid. "Just tell us who put you up to this." She was feeling too uncomfortable in the damn handcuffs, her wrists were aching like hell. Tony and Helena came back. "She threatened me, I'm so sorry. She told me to put you in custody else she would harm my pregnant wife. It's our first child and we have been married for five years, I couldn't let anything happen to her, I had no option. She has no mercy, she would do as she said." Hudson said, she knew it, she knew Georgina was involved in this too. Could that woman stoop any lower than this? "Now is the time to make it right Hudson, free Katie and let's get the damn woman. You talking about your own wife's life, do you know how many she has taken and is planning on taking?" Helena consoled him. Hudson held the hand she put on his shoulders and slow but steady tears fell out of his eyes. "Excuse me, but before the emotional drama gets to the climax, can someone be kind enough to free me from this bondage?" Katie cut in, Hudson smiled and came to unlock the handcuffs. "Now go Katie, get the damn bitch here." Husdon told her, she nodded and walked out with Tony and Helena. "We have to hurry Katie, we really need to." Helena said on their way to the car. Katie didn't need to be reminded of that but the tone Helena used made her ask. "Why do we need to hurry?" She was suspicious. "Well my mother is leaving town in two days, and you know what that means don't ya?" Helena said. What! Georgina was leaving in two days? That could only mean one thing. She wouldn't want to leave any evidence on her trail, she would have to kill her hostages. Katie panicked, they needed to act fast then. "But she hasn't gotten the property she worked hard for, has she?" Katie asked as she turned on the engine when they were all seated in the car, she drove off. "Really Kate? You underestimate my mother a lot. She used the opportunity of the charges pressed against you to convince the judge that you aren't capable, that you are just a criminal. She was in court just today before she went to the police station. The court will give its verdict in her favour in two days, she would flee after that." Helena replied. With the way she was talking and all the evidence she got, it was obvious she had been following her mother. "How do you know it will be in her favour?" Katie asked. "Bribery and corruption is not a new thing to you is it?" Helena asked. Interesting. But one thing still bothered her. "Isn't she scared of me coming after her and my property? She isn't planning to kill me, is she?" Katie asked. Helena just smiled. "Maybe it's time you started wondering why she framed you for murder."
    Katie sighed, she was going to ruin all of Georgina's plans, her era was over, it was really over. They got caught up in a big traffic, Katie used the opportunity to ask Helena what she had been wanting to ask. "Why are you doing this Lena? Why are you going against your mother? Thought you were on her side." Katie looked at her rearview mirror to see Tony, who was at the backseat trying to get a track of Fred's location on his laptop, look up from what he was doing to also hear Helena's reasons. Helena's face changed, she looked down. "I realized I was wrong all these years, I had been blinded by lies. I have been deceived and used by my mother. The worst thing was, I gave myself freely. It all started when we were young and we lost our dad, she said it was your parents that killed him and took our property, she showed us pictures of your dad, holding my dying dad. She put that anger in us, she said we must have our revenge on your family. That was how it started, she made plans to kill your parents. She did, then she told us to make their child, you, suffer and regret being born to life. She said, all of the property was hers and it was your family that took it away from her, we had to live in poverty because of what your parents did. No father, nothing. That made us angry and brutal, it turned us into what we are. She had been planning for this day for years Katie, years. The day she would get rid of all of you and get the fortune all to herself. But then I realized she was just using us, she was using her own children. Everything started becoming clear since the day Frank came to visit her while I was there. I now knew she didn't love us, she never did and Frank was right to go against her, he was smart enough to know the truth and he told us, but we were under the clutches of revenge to have believed him. She was using us to get the property, fuck it's a fortune. It can feed five generations, it can make anyone go crazy. The fact that she wanted it all for herself and was planning on ditching her children broke me and made me see the truth of who she really is. She doesn't care for anyone but herself Kate, it was my fault, I am really sorry for everything, I'm sorry, please forgive me." Helena explained. Katie sighed, so  that was the reason for their brutality, Georgina had lied to her own children and had made them pawns in her game, wooow, oh woow.
    "It's okay Lena, right now is not the time for apologies, let's bring this woman down once and for all, together." Katie smiled and held her hand, she smiled too. "Well, story time over. Helena, you have been following Georgina for a while now right? Could you name the places she had been?" Tony cut in. As Helena was naming, Katie drove into her compound and parked. They all got down and ran straight to the house. Katie got to her laptop and started working on the lead Helena gave them. She worked on it throughout the night, checking possible places.
   It was not until the next day that she found the plate number of Fred's car where it was parked. She searched overnight, tracking his car, not leaving the spot for a moment, she would relax later after everything was over. "I got it guys, I got it." Katie woke Helena and Tony up, where they were sleeping. "Oh Katie don't tell me you were there all night." Tony yawned, Helena too. "I have found Fred's car, and I know Georgina would be hiding them anywhere close to that place, let's hurry up, if she is really going tomorrow, then today will be when she finishes her work." Katie told them, they both buckled up when they heard the news. "Brilliant Katie, you are the smartest woman in the world." Coming from Helena of all people, Katie smiled. "We need to get there immediately." Helena said and started moving. "Wait, we can't just go there like this, remember what happened the last time, Georgina is smart, besides there will be armed men all around who wouldn't just smile and let us walk in there." Tony stopped her, he was right. Katie smiled. "Guys, I have a plan."
