Liberty
Hey, sorry to disturb you but I found this phone lying by the riverbank and I found a lot of missed calls and texts from you.
Liberty
Liberty
This phone looks really expensive, so I think the owner might want it back.
Anthony
Anthony
Hey, thank you so much for contacting me. The phone belongs to my brother.
Anthony
Anthony
He has been missing for a week now and the police hasn't got a clue.
Anthony
Anthony
Can you meet me somewhere and give me the phone so I can hand it over to the cops?
Liberty
Liberty
Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that. Of course we can meet up, give me a date and time.
The meetup happens on a Friday afternoon where the phone exchange hands and where the worried brother and Liberty exchanges number.
After a week
Liberty
Liberty
Hey. It's me, Liberty. Any news on your brother?
Anthony
Anthony
They found some stuff on his phone that suggests he ran away from home. And since he's not a minor they are dropping the case.
Liberty
Liberty
Oh no! I am so sorry to hear that. What are you going to do now?
Anthony
Anthony
I am gonna go look for him myself. He's my little brother. I don't believe for a second that he ran away.
Liberty
Liberty
Are you sure? I mean he could've.
Anthony
Anthony
No. I know my brother. He would never do that to us.
Anthony
Anthony
I am gonna leave tonight and start looking for him. Wish me luck.
Liberty
Liberty
You're really doing it then?
Liberty
Liberty
How are you even going to start looking for him?
Anthony
Anthony
Yes I am. I have got his phone back from the cops. I know where he went last. I am going to start from there.
Liberty
Liberty
Okay. Guess there is no stopping you now. Just be careful okay?
Anthony
Anthony
Alright. Later.
A week later
It's been seven days since Liberty heard from Anthony. She was getting worried that something happened to him.
Liberty
Liberty
Anthony, are you there?
A couple hours later
Liberty
Liberty
Anthony I am really worried.
Liberty
Liberty
Can you tell me what's happening?
Anthony
Anthony
I am hiding in a room right now. My phone is about to go off.
Anthony
Anthony
I need help Liberty. I think they are going to kill me.
Liberty
Liberty
What the hell are you talking about Anthony?
Liberty
Liberty
What appened? Should I call 911?
Liberty
Liberty
Tell me where you are right now.
Anthony
Anthony
911 can't help me. The situation is worse then I thought it was.
Liberty
Liberty
What do you mean?
Liberty
Liberty
You're scaring me.
Anthony
Anthony
My brother is dead Liberty. Max is dead and I am going to be next.
Anthony
Anthony
He died because he knew too much and I followed in his footsteps.
Liberty
Liberty
What are you talking about?
Liberty
Liberty
Just tell me where you are.
Liberty
Liberty
I will personally come and get you.
Anthony
Anthony
No. I don't want to put you at risk too.
Liberty
Liberty
I am sure it's nothing Anthony. You seem to be overreacting a bit.
Liberty
Liberty
I mean murder, really?
Anthony
Anthony
You don't believe me?
Anthony
Anthony
I literally found my brother's body Liberty.
Anthony
Anthony
His dead body, with bullet holes.
Liberty
Liberty
What?!
Liberty
Liberty
Tell me where you are right now.
Liberty
Liberty
I am gonna send help your way.
Anthony
Anthony
I don't think they will reach me in time. I'd be long dead by then.
Liberty
Liberty
Do you really want to die? Let me help you. Tell me where you are.
Liberty
Liberty
I will help you I promise.
Anthony
Anthony
Okay. But be quick. I am at a blue abandoned warehouse near Port Promise Road.
Anthony
Anthony
There is a back room behind crates. I am hiding there.
Liberty
Liberty
Alright. Help is on the way.
Liberty
Liberty
You stay there.
Thirty minutes later
Anthony has been Waiting for half an hour before he heard sounds outside. A fair few people were talking. Suddenly he heard a familiar voice. Asking someone to look behind the crates at the back.
Anthony
Anthony
Liberty is that you outside?
Liberty
Liberty
Yes Anthony. I came to get you myself.
Liberty
Liberty
Open the door. You are safe now.
Anthony
Anthony
Thank you so much. Of course.
Anthony opens the door to find Liberty standing in front of him, holding a gun at his face.
She smirks at him and thanks him for making it so easy to find him.
And then shoots him straight in the head.
