It is 2 o’clock now and he still hasn’t shown up. Sara was still standing outside and was waiting for my signal. The party is almost over and I didn’t get any reports of someone not following the theme of the party.

The guest has started to leave and still no trace of that jerk! He knows how to play with enemies.

I think that he won’t be coming today or he was expecting us to plan this scenario. Is he one of us? Has he disguised himself as the staff member?

No! It is not possible I have already checked the staff and everything was perfectly alright!

While thinking Sara entered the office, rushing towards my desk but not in worry but with a look of joy on her face. She was breathing heavily and was saying something but It was not at all clear.

I told her to calm herself and then tell me, I hope it is a piece of good news because she looks happy.

“HE IS BACK!” Sara said in a loud excited tone.

“Who is he?” I asked.

“Ma’am, my brother, he is back. He said he was looking for me for years and got a lead from a photo uploaded online.”

It is a piece of very good news for Sara because she is meeting him after so many years.

“Why don’t you call him in?”

“Really? Do you want to meet him? Let me tell you he is a very sweet and calm boy. He will do as you instruct him!”

“That’s good! Call him in, I want to meet your brother.”

I guess this the best news so far I got today.

A boy entered the office walking behind Sara. He had his hands in the pocket of his black color hoody and was wearing blue-colored jeans and high-quality but cheap-priced sports shoes.

“The staff spotted him as he was not following the theme and called me because he said to them that he came looking for me.”

Sara explained to me the whole situation. His brother was still standing behind him and looking at me with a little sense of fear in his eyes.

It was obvious that he will be scared after experiencing the death of his parents in front of his eyes but something was off.

He gave me a mocking smile when I caught him the second time looking at me while Sara was reciting me the whole story.

I ignored it at that time because I didn’t want Sara to feel worried or troubled. This is the first time that I have seen her so happy and I didn’t want to spoil her mood neither had the courage.

In the middle, her brother interrupted her and said, “Sis, it’s not like I was dead! See, I am fine and I am happy that you met these great people who helped you.”

He paused and looked at me and gave a big smile and said, “Thank you so much Ma’am for taking care of my sis! I don’t want to cause any trouble but I want to know about the shiny thingy around your neck.”
