I escorted Silver to the airport so she could board her departure flight to Washington.
Silver and I were at the waiting hall in the airport, sitting patiently and waiting for her departure time to reach.
"Are you sure this is the right thing to do?." I asked her.
"Honestly I don't know, but it's my best shot in seven years so imma take it." She replied as she adjusted her glasses.
"I really hope you find her." I said as I placed my hand over hers being affectionate.
"If you ever need anything, give me a call." I told her.
Well my financial assistance was the least I could provide for a good friend.
She nodded and gave me a small smile."Oh, before I forget, I found something." Silver told me and reached for her purse.
She opened the purse and pulled a silver chain out.
"What's tha-" I trailed off as I recognized the item in her hand.
Actually it's a bracelet...
"How did you get th
~Kara's POV~Everyone was present at the Sterling's Manor for their annual Thanksgiving party but unlike the usual, this year it was just us from the alliance minus other siders, company employees and stake holders.The Sterling sons which were: Edward, Johnny and Lance.The Starllion daughters which were: Anna, Risha and myself.Then the rest of the alliance: Barbara, Sam and Detective Harvey her Dad, Daniel and Johnny's Mom, Elaine Jackie Briggs.We were complete and it was now time for the feast to begin. This last supper was the ultimate reunion of a life time with all our surviving family members present.I was sitting between Lance and Sam at the table."Can we all hold hands and bow our heads as we say the Grace." Barbara called out to everyone present at the table.Barbara recited the grace and we all chorused, "Amen".The maids began bringing the food in, a savoury smell that made mouths water filled the air as eve
~Kara's POV~TWO WEEKS LATER...The charity ball had kicked off about an hour ago, it was a rather traditionally stunning event bringing very large number of people together in such a splendid venue.The venue was the large Western hall in the Sterling Enterprises, it was nicely decorated without too much bling but yet it held elegance enough for the elites present.Some faint R&B music filled the atmosphere while people chattered around the hall.Everyone was dressed rather formally and looked ready to enjoy the calm fall evening of socializing, entertainment, food, drinks and most importantly raising funds for a worthy cause.The goal this year was to raise $1,500,000 for the orphanages in the Basket so they could get more kids out of the streets in the narrows.My heart swelled with great compassion as I remembered my time in the narrows several years ago with all those wonderful kids whom were basically homeless with no guardian.
~Kara's POV~RECAP...The one whom appeared to be their leader raised a pistol up in the air and pulled the trigger twice, the loud bangs got everyone's attention fast.Many women exclaimed in fear while some whimpered.Everything moved in slow motion.I looked at the pistol in the person's hand and my heart sank, real horror crept into my soul, Lance and I exchanged glances, he had seen it too.It was a goddamn viper crest revolver.I thought this war was over the moment Don Starllion dropped dead... Who could this be?***So much for Christmas Eve...This town really is the Devil's Basket. You can't have fun without the worse happening.The one whom I perceived to be the gang leader slowly took off his mask.My breath really caught in my throat.Holy heavens!"Johnny!." I exclaimed in utmost shock.Lance just stood beside me dumbfounded, I was literally shook to my spine.
~Kara's POV~I have been in here a day and half, refusing to eat nothing and hoping Lance was okay.I mean just when we thought life was promising and we could finally have a happy ending and live normal lives, then this happens.So much for our Christmas plans, it was already the day after Christmas now.Have I tried escaping? Well yes, but there were guards everywhere and just one me isn't enough for nearly twenty well trained by Johnny to assassinate guards.I wonder where the killer in me had gone, that night after I killed Earl, that fire and burning desire for blood, that cold heart and resilience suddenly just died down, now I was just some sappy weakling who can't even defend herself.If this is what the normal life feels like then I don't want to be normal anymore.I stood by the window looking out to the compound hoping someone was coming for me, wishing that maybe Anna had heard about my dilemma and was back in town to save
I recommend 'Jocelyn Flores' by XXX Tentaction.***~Lance POV~"I said RUN!" I yelled one last time with all the strength I could muster.She grabbed a key from one the passed out guards and fumbled with the lock in desperate attempts to undo her cuffs as she ran off.I received a blow to my abdomen my insides shook as blood gushed out of my mouth like red puke.My life was gradually living me.She was safe now, maybe just maybe she would adhere and escape through the lobby.I stopped fighting back because I had to fight unconsciousness instead, my head was spinning in many different directions, my body had had enough and my mind had given up, even my soul was literally tired.Johnny gained consciousness and stood up like a predator and dashed out of the room without even looking my way once.He was going after Kara, I wanted to run and literally do anything I could to save her but I couldn't even stand on my feet, I was w
The teenage girl on the hospital bed winced as her eyes flickered open, her hands were connected to a life support monitor while several tiny pipes were inserted in her nose and an oxygen mask was also placed over her nose.She had been in a coma.The hospital room was very illuminated with various LED light bulb installed in the ceiling.Everything in the room was neat and well kept.A bouquet of flowers rested on the drawer besides the hospital bed where the teenage girl lay, attached to it is a small note written in black ink which reads: "WAKE UP SOON K. WE MISS YOU. LOVE, MOM!."Her fingers twitched gently by her side, she tried sitting up and ended up yanking the entire setup connected to her body.She yelped quietly.An alarm rose in the room and almost immediately the door flung open with three doctors dashing in."Oh my God, she is awake." One of the doctors exclaimed."Quickly, place a call to her Mother." The ot
