Zack said okay and hung up, then John went downstairs to tweak the surveillance cameras.
Meanwhile, Sophia opened her eyes. D*mn. Being so vulnerable makes me sick. She went for her phone and took a look at the date. The next checkup is around the corner. I bet they’ll make their move then. She sat up and tried to come up with something, and out popped a plan.
The tweak didn’t take long, and the technicians left after that. Ms. Cannon went to tidy up, and John was in the yard, making a call, then he came up. When he came in, Sophia was still lying on her bed. She was getting less inclined to move around now.
John caressed her face. “I’ll be going to the company now, but someone will be standing guard. It’s fine, so don’t worry.”
Sophia grunted. “Yeah.”
John stared at her for a while before leaving the room. Instead of going to the company, he went to the mall and made a beeline for the jewelry store.
