When His Eyes Opened

Chapter 33

Chapter 33 Once Shaun sent the photo to Wanda, he decided to watch over the safe all day in hopes that she might surprise him. If Wanda could crack the safe’s code, then he could kick Avery out of the picture without giving her a penny. Wanda called about half an hour later and said, “I can’t think of anything else other than the combinations that you've already tried, but I noticed that the date of birth written here for Laura Jensen is the one on her ID. That's not her real birthdate. Let’s try again with the real one.” “Alright!” Shaun responded enthusiastically. Two hours later, they had finally managed to get the safe door open. Wanda was right. Jack had used Laura's real date of birth and not the one stated on her ID. Jack had used a combination of Laura's and Avery's birthdates as his passcodes. The correct passcode and the family portrait in the hidden room matched perfectly together. It was Jack's homage to Laura and Avery. Wanda was on a video call with Shaun, and she burst into a raging fury when the safe opened. “That b*st*rd! After all the years we've been together, he went and set such an important code to Laura’s and Avery's birthdates! Sh*t! He would get an earful from me if he were still alive!” When Shaun opened the safe, his muscles tightened in excitement, and his eyes sparkled with anticipation He did not hear Wanda's cussing at all. There were two security levels to the safe. The first was the passcode, and the second needed either a key or facial recognition. The key was inside the room itself, and both Shaun and the other two technical staff knew of its location. Shaun turned the key in the safe's lock and carefully opened the door. He was met with a completely empty safe. There was nothing in the safe! Shaun’s face was a picture of horror and fury. “F*ck! Where the hell is it?!” He violently landed his fist on top of the safe as his eyes reddened with anger. “It must have been Avery!" Wanda cried from the other side of the phone. “Who else could it be but her? She gave you that piece of paper on purpose! She must have used her mother’s correct birthdate to open the safe before this!” 1 “Did she plan to take everything for herself?” Shaun said through gritted teeth. “D*mn it! I didn’t expect her to be this ambitious! You can’t let her get away with this, Mr. Locklyn!” Wanda would love nothing more but for Shaun and Avery to go against each other. All she had to do was sit back and watch the show. Shaun ended the video call. Avery was bad news, but so was Wanda! He would not have wasted any of his time on them if it did not yield any profit. He kicked the safe door shut, then thought carefully about when the contents were taken away. Whether Jack had moved it before his death, or someone had taken it after he died, Avery Tate was still his biggest suspect. Did she want to take everything for herself? Did she think she could get away with it that easily?!
