TO CHASE AND TO CLAIM (EPISODE 15)
As they both walked down the passage, Chase came up with an idea.
“I think you are right about giving her a break, at least, now I can see she is really taking things seriously and I wouldn’t want her to keep doing this to herself.”
“So what do you suggest?”
“I think I will leave tonight. I know her very well, once she wakes up tomorrow, when she finds out that I had to carry her, she will be either angry or she will start feeling bad… I don’t want her to feel either so I will leave before she wakes up tomorrow.”
“Aww..that ’s really thoughtful. So where will you go? Do you mean you will leave Hatteras Island or what?”
“No, that’s not it, I still believe we can make things work once she has the freedom she wants. Besides, I already took a month leave from work, if I go back home, it will be pretty boring.”
Tori smiled. “Well, that’s okay. So you want to rent another house?”
“Well, I will see if I can get one by tomorrow or If it’s just a single room, I don’t mind. There is just one problem.”
“What is it?”
“Kaylie handled everything relating to our rental and I don’t have the guy’s number.”
“Oh, that’s not a problem.” She replied, took our her phone, scrolled through it and handed it to him.
Chase copied Taylor’s number. “I’m done, thanks.”
“No problem, tell me about it tomorrow. I will call you.”
“You don’t have my number.”
“I’m very smart, I sent it to myself through Kaylie’s phone earlier.”
“Wow! Smart, was that the only thing you did?”
“Nope, you will have to find out the rest gradually but trust me, it’s for your own good. Goodnight Chase, by the way, a message will come in soon, that’s my number.”
Chase watched her as she walked out of the house and then shut the door behind her. He got the message truly and saved her number.
Some minutes later, he was in his room, lying on the bed as he dialed Taylor’s number.
“OuterBanks Rentals, Taylor at your service.”
“Oh, hello Taylor, I’m Chase, we met a couple of days ago.”
“Oh Hello sir, how may I help you?”
“Yea, just want to know if there is any beach house left or any vacant room close to the beach.”
“Oh! We just rented out the remaining house tonight, though there are two rooms in the house and there is just one occupant and she is staying in one of the rooms, she paid for a single room, but the other one is vacant.”
“Okay, is it close to the beach?”
“Yes sir, it is. Would you like me to send you the details?”
“Yea, no problem thanks. I would love to move in as early as tomorrow morning so please make it snappy.”
“No problem sir, I will need to confirm first from Miss Anne if she wouldn’t mind a male housemate, sorry sir, it’s one of our protocols to keep our customers comfortable…once Miss Statham says she is okay with it and…”
“Wait…Anne Statham?” Chase asked, sitting upright.
“Oh wow! Great! You know her.”
“Oh my God!” Chase ended the call immediately and dialed Tori’s number.
“Hi Chase, you got my number…”
‘Tori I’ve got a major problem.”
“What is it?”
“Don’t worry, just send me the direction of your house, I will come over.”
“Okay, call me when you are coming, I will send you the direction.”
Chase took a Tori breath. This was getting more twisted than he expected.
