I felt water droplets on my face disturbing my peaceful slumber.
“Sara if that's you, you better hurry because I won't spare you for waking me up on a Sunday morning.” I said annoyed at my sister. I heard a small giggle which confirmed my suspicions. I removed the blanket from my face and looked at the five years old stifling her laugh while staring at me. I got up and ran after her but not before getting my glass filled with water to pour on my sweet little annoying sister.
“Sissy, I was only trying to wake you up. No harm in that.”
“It's a Sunday for god's sake Sara. Why in the world would you do that?” By now we were running around the living room dodging the pillows that we threw at each other making a mess when we heard a sharp voice.
“Amelia Faith Wells and Sara Mary Wells stop whatever you are doing right now.” We heard our mother, Lily shouting. We sopped and Sara jumped down from the couch while I looked at the mess we had created.
“Sorry mom. But Sara started it.” I said sheepishly while glaring at my sister.
Sara pouted in a very adorable way and I knew she was going to get away. Being the eldest sucked!
“Mama I was only trying to get sissy to help you.”
“Awe... My sweet baby, go and get cleaned for breakfast now.” She said and then turned towards me with her hands on her hips. “And for you ,young lady, you will clean up this mess and then get dressed appropriately.”
I looked down at my clothes and saw that I was still in my pyjamas and I blushed furiously in embarrassment. That doesn’t mean I will clean this on my own.
“But mom it was her fault. She poured water on me first.”
You sound real mature for 21, Amelia.
Oh you finally woke up brain. Good morning and thanks for your petty advice.
“Amelia, sweetie she is your little sister and you are supposed to help her not fight with her.” She raised her palm when she saw I was going to argue further and said, “No more arguing do what I say and help me finish baking today’s batch of cookies.”
I nodded my head and got to work. My mother owned her little bakery in town and it was named Amelia's Bakery because my mother believed that my coming into the world had brought success to her business life. The bakery was soon going to be renamed as A&S bakery so that Sara also had a share. I love her even though she is as annoying as hell; she was this little bundle of joy that happened to us five years ago. I always wanted a sibling and Sara fulfilled that wish though if I knew if she was going to be a lot of trouble I would never have wished for her.
Are you really serious?
No dumb brain you know I am just kidding.
I cleaned up and wore a washed out jeans with a blue sweater and walked to the kitchen smiling at the sight of my sister eating her cereals.
“Mom where is dad?” I asked while looking towards the study wondering where he was.
“He had to go in early today but will be back for lunch. Also in the evening we have to go to church early, pastor Riley is really depending on us to help out in the charity feast.”
“Hmm.. But are you done preparing all the snacks?”
“Not yet but with your help I will be done in no time.” She said giving me a proud smile. I learned to bake when I was 10 and since then have been really good at it. Sadly it is not my passion, my passion is to organise events and also doing art.my major in college is event management and I have to say I might be the only one in class who finds it interesting.
“Mama, I miss dad.”
My mom traced her thumb on my sister's soft cheeks soothingly and said, “Baby you know daddy's job is difficult but he will be free soon and we can all go for picnic together and have lots of fun.” My father was a detective in the NYPD and he was known for his honesty and bravery all around Manhattan. His study was filled with his medals and trophies but he never let his professional life mix with his personal life. He was dealing with a dangerous case for some time now and is always busy with night shifts and overtimes.
My mother nodded at me; signalling me to change the topic so that Sara won't be sad. I sighed and ruffled her hair and asked her, “Do you have any homework for tomorrow?”
“I finished all of them because I am a good girl. Am I right mama?” My mother nodded smiling and went back to her work.
“Sara next time you wake me with water I will make sure to drench you in a whole bucket of water and mom won’t be able to stop me.” I said to her half joking and half seriously. She just stuck her tongue out and laughed while I glared at her. But her laugh was so contagious that I soon joined her.
“Girls your father won’t be able to make it for lunch.” She said with a fallen face. I sighed in disappointment but stood up and looked at my mother.
“Mom, let's get going we have cookies to make and Sara you can join us too but you have to wash your hands first or you will have germs to eat in your cookies.” That made her run to the washroom to wash her hands and this made us laugh.
The day went on with us baking and then later on helping out in the church with my dad. Of course he made it to the event though he was busy which made all of us extremely happy.
I walked to the underground cell and saw Ken walk out of the ‘dark room’ where our captives were kept. His knuckles were bloodied and he had an evident frown on his face.
“That bastardo doesn’t know where the files are hidden. The last thing he knows is he handed it over to that cop. Now what was his name?”
“Samuel Wells.” I answered thinking when all this shit would end. I hate every fucking day of my life and hate the mafia.
“We will be in deep shit if those get out.”
“Should I question him again?” I asked already thinking of ways to torture the impostor in our mafia.
“I don't think it will be of any help. Let's get to the boss and inform him.”
We went upstairs into the office and the boss was quite upset with the whole matter, I mean who wouldn't be if they knew that the mafia could come down because evidence against us was leaked to a detective.
“Is there any good news yet?”
“No sir.” Ken said shivering in his intimidating presence but I had my head up because no longer did he scare me and he knew it very well.
“Okay then we all know what we need to do next.” Boss said looking at me specifically. I dreaded this would happen but being the heir of the mafia I had no other choice.
-AMELIA-I got ready for college wearing black jeans and a white crop top and had my hair in a ponytail. I like being simple and for that I was known to be a nerd unlike my best friend Jennifer Bancroft. She was more lit while being good in academics. Her major was in fashion design and we went to the same college by taking the bus. Well we both knew how to drive but liked taking the bus daily so we could spend more time with each other.“Amelia, are you done yet? Jennifer's here.” My mom shouted which made me look at the clock and realise that I only had thirty minutes before the bus came. I rushed downstairs and had my breakfast when I noticed that my father had left for work early today also.“He will be in for lunch, so don't be late after college.” My mom said seeing my frown. I smiled at her and got up to leave after giving Sara and mom a quick kiss.“Thanks for the breakfast, Lily.” Jen said while getting up from the table. She lived 5 minutes away fro
-AMELIA-Two hours of detention and on top of that we had it with the dean so you could probably imagine how it was. He made us read history book and write five essays on five different topics. How cruel is that? I had Jen with me so it was less boring. Scowling and glaring at Tania was also kind of fun.I thought you didn’t like her?I still don’t.Then how can you have fun with herI didn’t mean jolly fun but rather revenge fun. She always got away with bullying and this time she had to spend detention with us.Jen came out of the building holding her bag towards me indicating that she found it. Somehow she had left it in her classroom and I had to share my stuff with her. Some times this girl has some memory problem. Luckily we didn’t miss the second bus; if we had then she would be ten feet under by now.“Amelia I said sorry will you please talk to me now?”I was not talking to her right now because of the whole b
-AMELIA-Three bodies covered in blood were lying before me I couldn't believe my eyes. Surely this is a dream. Oh I wish it is a dream!! Seeing all the blood and my parents and sister I could feel myself hyperventilating. I can't stand this anymore everything was turning blur and black spots were filling my vision. Everything went black.
-AMELIA-I got up sweating profusely. My heart was beating fast and sweat trailed down my forehead. My back was aching from the uncomfortable position in which I was sleeping on the couch.Thinking of everything that happened in the past days made me cry again.As I brushed my teeth I thought about what happened in my dream and who could have done this. But one thing was for sure I want those criminals to be punished either by me or by the police.Wait what was that arrogant fellow doing in my dreams! He had no connection with this entire scenario then why? Before I could think for an answer there was a knock at the door. I was shivering as i walked towards the door what if the killer has come back realising that he had left one person behind? I was breathing heavily and panicking... I took a knife from the kitchen a
-AMELIA POV-I paced around the room and my hands were shaking. Where was Jenny she said she would come soon? I kept pulling the ends of my hair and fumbled with my t-shirt when the door bell rung. Finally!“Are you okay? Did someone hurt you?” she asked panicking.“Jen calm down I called you to support me and not to panic more.” That made her hit her head and looked at me apologetically.
-AMELIA-I stared into the deep ocean blue eyes thinking how many colors would make such deep color. I was snapped out of my thoughts by a harsh musky voice,“Miss. Wells, I don’t think this is how you treat your guests. Why don’t we continue this conversation inside?” I felt the anger inside me rise, how dare he?“You really think I will let you inside, now don’t you?” I asked with my eyebrows raised. Th
-AMELIA-“Senorita I don’t think you have an upper hand here.” I am not going to back down. I will fight till he agrees.“I will come only if you accept my condition. So if you agree, you have nothing to lose it’s a small condition.” -AMELIA-I woke up to the sound of my alarm. The thought of Sara not waking me up with water saddened me but I stood up and went to the washroom thinking of ways to irritate Sean so that he gets out of the house. I went near his room to see if he was still sleeping or had already woken up. I slightly opened his door and saw him fixing a punching bag from the ceiling, shirtless. Trying keep his
