  1. The voice on the other end proclaimed "I love you too but I know what you did and the consequences will be fierce". She realized that she had dialed the wrong Teddy and was actually speaking to her father-in-law! The pink cell phone fell to the floor. Her heart began to race, her hands began to shake and the room felt as if it was spinning. She knew the voice was that of her father-in-law but how could it be.
    For he was........

  3. hired the hitman that killed him! She even attended his funeral and watched them lower his casket into the ground. How could he be one the other end of the phone?

  5. [Alexis] kill him herself because the hired gun must be working for him. She wanted him dead because he knew she was after his family fortune. She was an infamous black widow who was looking for a final score. Killing him and her husband would be very lucrative for her, he'll he even paid off the hitman she paid handsomely for. She knew the danger of aiming so high, but she went too far going for the cartel Don's son. "Honey is there something wrong?" Said her husband as he entered the room. She immediately shot expertly between his eyes. She literally had nothing to lose any more but a merciful death when the cartel is done with her. She never loved her husband; he was a means to an end. She heard a loud violent pounding on the front doors of her husband's mansion. So she readied her gun and decided to...

  6. run out of the backdoor. As she enters her car, her phone begins to ring. Before she has the chance to say hello the voice on the other end says, "You really screwed up messing with me. Check the grave." Once again, it was the voice of her father-in-law. Before she has the chance to respond the call drops. She drives downtown to the graveyard and...

  7. And finds an empty grave with a new headstone. As she walked closer to read the engraving she grasped for air as she read aloud... beloved wife and daughter-in- law.... she began to shake as she went closer....

  8. she hesitated as she leaned in closer. As her eyes continued to examine the headstone, there it was.......her own picture. "How could this be?" she screamed out loud just as she felt a presence behind her. Afraid to turn around she closed her eyes, reached in her jacket pocket and just as she went to pull out her cell phone felt a familiar embrace from the back. At that moment she knew, all of her secrets had been revealed....the jig was up. With no time to make a plausible explanation, she did the only thing she knew to do. She.......

  9. ...grabbed him by the arm and flipped him over her back into the open grave! (Barb was a jujitsu master (also her name is now Barb)) Panting, she stood over the grave as the man below scrambled, frantically to gain equilibrium, he shouted, “It’s over Barb! The Don pulled your card and it’s time to pay the piper” Storm clouds begin to swell in the sky, as she pulls out her gun, points in at his face, she says, “I am the piper *****” BANG! Just then, headlights...as a car pulls up...

  10. As a car pulls closer, she gets a closer look at who she shot. It's her brother who was in on it with her father in law. As the car approaches her mother in law gets out of the car with a group of gunmen, not knowing that they are under Barbs employment. As the mother in law points the gun at Barb, she says "it's over for you!" Barb says "actually it looks like it's over for you!" Then...

  14. As Cindy is swooped away...but that damn pink phone starts ringing! The voice on the other end says, "Mom! Please, help!" As a curly lock of hair floats down from the sky and lands on Barb's face as she stares up at the clouds! "Your child's life or my business...you have 8 hours to decide...

  15. She clutches the hair inside of her hand as the helicopter flies away between the clouds. “ I can’t do this alone” she thinks to herself. She hops back in the car And turns a 1 hour trip into 30 minutes as she approaches a shack in a undisclosed location. “Knock knock knock”.....the door opens slowly to a man standing at 6ft, with broad shoulders and a impeccable torso. A bald head and a look of surprise in his eyes...it was Jason her....

  16. Ex-husband and the father of her child. "Barb, what are you doing here?" He questioned with wonder. "They have our daughter, Jason. We have to get her back" she cried as she fell into his arms. Jason hugs Barb tightly allowing her to feel his impeccable torso and loving touch that she has missed so much. Jason asks in a deep voice, "who has my daughter and what is the plan to get her back?" Barb so emotional and vulnerable at this time, looks deeply into his eyes and she....

  17. Falls asleep. As Jason quietly dumps her lifeless body on the couch...the phone rings. Jason says , "Yes! I have her. Where is my money?" Barb is slowly regaining sensation in her hands as she listens to Jason tell the person on the other end it was all a trick to get her there and their daughter is safe! Barb knows Jason will kill her if she doesn't actually fast. Barb reaches under couch, grabs her gun, and points it at the back of Jason's head....

  18. Click, click, click...the gun was empty. Barb had to act quick, so she hit Jason in the head with the gun with all the strength she had in her exhausted body. He quickly fell to the ground. Barb quickly went for the phone. "Who are you? where is my daughter? Barb questioned. "You know who this is, Barb" said the mysterious voice. Barb's eyes enlarged with shock as she heard the voice and recognized the voice. It was....
