It was very hard for the Sam to avoid Derek's threats. Sam was in love with Derek about two years ago. She had very strong feelings for him. All the time she used to think of him. She used to think that no one could ever love her more than Derek. In fact Derek was a big cheater and used to keep many girlfriends simultaneously. He had no interest in Sam. He was with her because of her money because she was very rich.
One day Sam saw him flirting with a girl. She could not believe of her eyes. Tears rolled out of her eyes. Somehow Derek saw her and was shocked to see her there. Sam went away crying and Derek was not in a position to call her back. Her trust was broken and she was left heartbroken. For her it was like the world came to an end. She could not stop crying. Derek was disappointed for he feared that if she gets angry, he will lose her wealth. But Sam was not willing to give him a second chance. Derek kept calling her again and again but she did not pick up his phone call.
Sam decided to get married to her business partner, John. She made a phone call to Derek and told him about her wedding ceremony. Derek wanted to apologize but she did not listen to him and disconnected the line.
After six months when Derek needed money he decided to blackmail Sam and threatened her that if she doesn’t give him the money, he would ruin her married life by showing their pictures to his husband and then she would be divorced by John. Sam had no other choice but to fulfill his demands. Derek called her again and told her where to meet. She went there and threw money on his face. Sam was satisfied that he would never torture her again. But it turned out to be Sam’smistake as he started to blackmail her again and again. Sam had no other option but to fulfill his greed for money.
Three years passed like that and he kept blackmailing her. Sam always prayed to get over from him. At times her intensity of pain got reflected in her prayers. She neither wanted to deceive her husband nor wanted to lose his trust. And at time same time she didn’t know how to deal with the situation except bearing with it silently.
Derek called her and said, “How are you, darling.”
Sam felt intimidated by his call, “Come to the point,” she said angrily.
Derek smiled and said, “I need money, come at beach. I’ll be there at sharp 6 o clock.”
Sam put down the phone immediately. She went to the beach at 6 o clock. She waited there for a long time but he did not come. Then she went back and next day she heard that Derek had serious road accident and he died on the spot. Sam was shocked to hear that, but deep inside she knew that she won’t face any problems from him now. She will be able to live peacefully with her husband. Now she lived a very peaceful and happy life with her husband. She often thought that how one accident had changed her life.
