"Well we haven't found anything so far"
"Tessa that's not good enough"
"Martha we're trying all we can"
"I promised that we would have this couple par now and it's been three weeks and we've turned up nothing"
"Just give us some plus time.."
"I give up"
Martha had been missing for a few hours now and no one had heard from her, Bloom had tried phoning her but she wouldn't answer and she always answered him
"Martha, where are you? We are all worried, toi haven't been answering your phone and we just wanna know that your okay, i wanna know your safe, please please phone me back"
Martha was sitting on her lit and she began to cry she began to think about everything. She thought about how she had failed herself and the team, she wished it could have been different. She went into the bathroom and sat on the edge of the bath, she looked over her shoulder and picked up her razor
"Bloom we've found something"
"We've found an add in the local paper"
"So they advertised for people who might be willing to carry their child?"
"Yes and i phoned up the company who published this add and their description matches exactly who we might be looking for"
"Well done Tessa"
"Bloom i've .....also found Martha"
"Where is she?"
"She's at home"
John was outside Martha's house and he tried to phoning to make sure she was actually home, he heard her phone go off but she wasn't answering, he tried to the door but it was locked but remembered she always had a window slightly open so he climbed through the window and looked around she wasn't down stairs so he decided to try upstairs
She never replied as he got upstairs he began to hear crying, he followed it to the bathroom he knocked before entering, there was no reply so he slowly opened the door. When he saw inside he saw Martha on the floor, with the razor suivant to her and her arm was bleeding
"Martha!, hey,hey it's okay. it's okay, shh,shh"
Martha broke down into even plus tears and wrapped her arms around John and held him so tight like she was scared to let go. John was upset and angry with her and himself, but he was glad she was still breathing. They stayed like this for a while until John wanted to clean Martha's arms
"So Tessa toi got anything?"
"Yeah i phoned the company again, they a dit that the couple did leave a forwarding address but when i checked it out it turns out that it's just an abandoned apartment"
"So what are we waiting for let's go"
"Well i was thinking that maybe we could wait for a while i mean we don't exactly have the evidence yet. I also have another idea"
Martha was sitting on her canapé while John was in the kitchen, she hadn't a dit a word to him. He was worried, he went over to the canapé and sat down suivant to her
"Martha it's okay if toi don't wanna talk, but i thought toi had stopped all this. toi promised me that if toi ever felt like... doing that again that toi would tell me and we would talk about it, i don't want toi to hurt yourself again, it hurts me knowing that you've done this..."
John didn't have time to finish his sentence as Martha had already wrapped her arms around him
"I'm sorry, i'm so sorry"
"It's okay, just promise me toi won't do it again"
"Thank you, i just really worry about you"
"I know. The feeling's mutual"
"I think we should get back to work, they'll be wondering where we've gone"
"Yeah i suppose so"
John and Martha walked back in to work, Martha made sure she wore a long sleeved jumper to cover her arms so they won't see her cuts
"Martha are toi okay?"
"I'm fine Tessa sorry about earlier i'm under a lot of stress and i didn't mean..."
"It's okay i understand"
"Thank you, so what have got?"
"Well we may have found out where they are living and possible suspects"
"Good that's good"
"So i have had an idea on how to get the evidence we need to convict them"
"Okay let's hear it"
"Well these people need a baby in order to gain access to the country so i think we should get someone to reply to the add and go and meet them to try and get them to agree to let a dit person carry their baby then once the baby is born and handed over we will have a piece of evidence"
"Okay so where are we gonna get this girl from Tessa?"
"Well Jose i was thinking that we could ask...."
"I'll do it"
"I a dit i'll do it"
"Are toi sure?"
"Yes i'm sure"
"Martha can i talk to toi for a moment?"
John entered her office and shut the door as soon as she was in she could tell she was in trouble
"What are doing?"
"Out there, What was that?"
"I was doing my job"
"By volunteering to go for an interview to see if if the couple want toi to have their baby?"
"So? Have toi even thought about this?"
"Of coarse i have"
"No.. No i don't think toi have...not properly anyway"
"What do toi mean?"
"Martha if they pick you... toi are going to have to carry their baby for nine months and then give it to them...i don't think toi know how hard it is going be for you"
"I'll be fine"
"Look John i know you're worried about me but toi don't have to be, i know what i'm doing okay?"
"I know toi can take care of yourself i just....i don't want..."
Martha took John's face in her hands and looked into his eyes. She could see that he really did care about her. She then pressed her lips against his and gave him a gentle kiss, John then recaptured them into another gentle Kiss they then pulled apart as they heard someone coming towards the office door and then it opened
"Tessa was just wondering if toi plan on going ahead with the plan?"
"Yes, tell her i will phone them within an hour"
"So there's no changing your mind then?"
"I'm afraid not"
"Well i'll support toi all the way no matter what happens"
