Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed, I write.

Mama Xin sits reminiscing about losing her husband to a stroke years ago which left her to raise two children alone. She sacrificed a lot to raise a teenage daughter and an adolescence, son to ensure they both had food to eat, shelter and that they could have some form of happiness.

Although she tried and desired to do more she just wasn’t able to give them the clothes or the things other children in school received. Sometimes things were very hard and children at school would laugh at them for not being as fortunate as them.

But one thing she did manage to do is make sure they didn’t lose out on their education or become losers in gangs or hooked on drugs like some children in the neighborhood that are being raised in a single parent home.

Leroy and Liz were brought up in the poorest part of Chicago, Illinois and Mama Xin did everything within her power to protect them both from the gangs, drugs and all the awful things that were going on in the streets that go together with the inconvenience things.

Liz was the kind that loved feeling dominant and the boss of everything and for that reason, she fought with Leroy a lot. Leroy was the type who loved being loyal and helping others, even if they did have a bad character and always tried to make peace with his sister.

Although Mama Xin raised them in the worse underprivileged part of Chicago, she was always available for them. Striving to raise two children alone, she watched them grow into two little individuals with different personalities. She knew they both would grow up to make her proud one day because they had one thing in common to lead them in the right direction. They had her to guide and look after them.

Mama Xin reminisces about Leroy's best friend, Morgan. He had met him on the school playground and she knew he was nothing but trouble and had warned Leroy about playing on the devil's territory. He liked feeling privileged to have a friend, even if he did have a bad reputation. It was wanting an acquaintance that mattered to him, rather than listen to the warning his mother gave him or the way that other people saw him.

As Mama Xin was reminiscing she gets interrupted by the phone ringing. She answers the phone to be excited to hear the voice of her daughter Liz. “Hello Mother,” “how are you. "I received a message from Leroy to call home for a family emergency, what’s going on?” said Liz.

Mama Xin replied, “I am happy to hear your voice, Leroy probably was calling because I was held hostage by kidnappers for ransom.” “Oh my God, mother How could that happening?” – “I will keep in touch more,” said Liz.

"I am okay and I was praying for Laura when you called, I was freed, but she is still with the kidnappers and the abductors are money hungry so, I am praying she comes home safe," said Mama Xin.

"Whose Laura?" said, Liz. "She’s Leroy girlfriend," replied Mama Xin. "I hired her to redecorate my house while Leroy was in the hospital." She also a Business Attorney.

What? Replied Liz, “Leroy was in the hospital, a lot has gone on since we last talk.”

"Yes," replied Mama Xin. "A lot has happened and went wrong." "I will never stop praying and trusting, that if I just keep praying, trusting God, that things will change and fortune will be on our side, one day."

Mama Xin enjoyed talking with her daughter, but she had a kidnapping seminar to attend and she did not want to be late. This seminar has helped many victims to not live in fear, protect themselves and turn from a victim to less of a target.

The seminar was titled, “How not to be a victim giving the ordinary person the capabilities to defend themselves.” Mama Xin fit in perfectly and her desired were to NEVER feel helpless again, especially since she’s a widow being alone and some people love preying on the older individuals with no protector.

Mama Xin was ready to learn all the essential the seminar covered like how to avoid the most common mistakes when coming home at night in the dark or traveling alone to dangerous places. She really loved learning what body action to display, what to say or not to say, and what to do or not do and how not to present fear.

Mama Xin first couple of classes were very hard for her, the soreness she encountered. When she had to counter punch or flip her opponent and they do the same to her was not easy, but she was determined to know how to defend herself.

The class covered how to know if you're being followed, preparation, planning, and emergency actions, escape the trap laid for you and it outlines all the stuff that made Mama Xin feel safe and not live in fear after her abduction.

Mama Xin main purpose of taking this seminar is to know what to do if she's unarmed in worst-case situations. She even went and purchase a gun and became certified to carry a weapon. It’s best to be prepared as one will never know if they find themselves in a bad situation and It’s nothing like being prepared and able to defend yourself.

After returning home Mama Xin soaked her aching body in the tub. It is tiresome for Mama Xin waiting to hear words from Leroy with news on freeing Laura. She lay down to relax and fell asleep from a long exasperating day.

The phone woke her up ringing, she reached over and answered it, it was Louise, Mama Xin sister. She was so happy to hear from her. It’s good to talk with you, I was so worried when I learned you were kidnapped, said, Louise.

Twenty minutes after Mama Xin hung up the new break caught her attention on the television. The only thing Mama Xin could think of was what if the News was about Leroy and Laura, and what they could be going through in their terrible situation.

The News covered the kidnapping story of Laura being held hostage from her ex-husband, she married him when they were fresh out of high school. He was her high school sweetheart, but the married didn't last, it went sour a little over a year after they married.

The news explains how the kidnapper held his ex-wife hostage for ransom. He needs money and felt he was not going to allow his ex-wife to live it up in richness while he lives in poverty.

He was unable to get spousal support from her after the divorce. Plus the guy the ex-wife now dating, the ex-husband read in fortune 500 he's a billionaire, so he kidnapped her and the mother for ransom.

The mother was fortunate enough to be freed a couple days ago, but the Ex-husband the kidnapper was still holding the ex-wife for money as he's a junkie on crack/cocaine who need money that just got out of jail. He has now been caught but his guy still at large with the ex-wife and boyfriend, He's now in custody and is headed right back to lock down.

The kidnapping took a wrong turn after the briefcase shown to the abductor was filled with money, but in that one brief moment, the kidnapper was distracted it was switched with one filled with Newspapers.

Before they could leave the driveway the kidnapper held up the bundles of torn up paper asked: “What’s this?" That moment things got a little out of control and the ex-wife and boyfriend drove off afraid the kidnappers would take their life.

Out of the excitement, Mark shouted at his men “You know what the kidnappers will do if they get the money.” The car drove down the driveway toward a dock where there was a lake filled with water.

The car pulled to a halt at the edge of the wharf where Leroy was forced to bring it to a stop. The kidnapper immediately ran to grab the car door open and take hold of him and Laura beginning to drag them toward the water's edge.

Things happened so fast that before Mark guy could get there to rescue Laura, they pushed her body into the water, the water was so cold that she felt like she had no feeling. There was nothing but a numbness that consumed her up.

One guy then held Leroy by both his feet over the ice-cold water. “Who has my money?” he screamed at him, He was unable to speak, his chest hurt and his heart ponder very fast. Tell me or join her deep down, screamed the kidnapper.

As Leroy watch, Laura body goes under she could feel the water rushing inside her mouth and going quickly down her throat. Laura could feel her body trembling to the icy cold pull of the water and Leroy feeling as if he had nothing left to do but also die.

Will Leroy and Laura both lose their life? As Leroy hangs up by both feet, will he drop down in the cold water with Laura? Will Mark and his guys get to Leroy and Laura in time? Mainly to save Laura as she trembles in icy cold water.

Will, she inhales too much water and lose her life? Will Mark and his guy find her body in time before she drowns? Will we learn the direct consequence of why Laura and Leroy both stands to pay the price with their life?

Leroy Betrayed by his friends, on a totally different course as he was left forced to grab life by the scruff of the neck and go on the run maybe even get out of town. Will he return? If so, will he help Laura situation or stand to inherit all she owns?

Although Leroy froze in fear and hanging to lose his life. With him being in shock, he could not have replied even if he had wanted to. He still has a problem believing that this could be happening to him and Laura.

Stay tuned for more details to learn the fate of Laura's ex-husband, what part Morgan will play in this tragedy, how Mama Xin dealing with this challenging situation on the Mystery unravel Whodunit. join me as I reveal the outcome of Leroy and Laura fate, Mark and his guy part in this journey and so much more when I write and share Part 9.
