Maybe I should let her live. No. She doesn't deserve to live. She deserved to be in hell with her accomplices. The corners of my lips tipped upwards in the beginning of a smile.
"P-please sir, I promise it won't repeat itself I—"
The bullet I fired at the ceiling silenced her. "I promise the next bullet won't go in the ceiling but in that useless head of yours," I warned watching her distinctively heart shaped gave pale under the poor lighting of the basement.
What a pathetic little thing. She really thought I would let her go. No way. A sadistic laugh escaped my lips as I placed my index finger and pulled the trigger. "That's what dishonest employees like you get, " I laughed again. "Peter, take care of this mess. I've got a meeting to attend."
Warren.Red and blue lights flashed along with the constant blare of the police cars and ambulance. From where I stood, shocked and unable to moved, absorbing everything.At least I got what I wanted. Peace at last. Were my father's last words before a silent thud signified he collapsed. Mary and Dario stood over the unconscious body of my newly discovered twin asking the paramedics questions. Sweat still trickled down my forehead and back whenever the image of my dad holding the gun to her temple flashed through my mind."I hope she's gonna be fine."The guy who had jerked my father's hand away at the last second continued watching the scene unfold. I wasn't even going to ask how he knew where we were or his relation work us. I was just glad dad was gone.A small pressure weighed on by hand and soft ginger eyes stared up at me. "She'll be fine, Warren. She only went into shock," she said then her eyes wate
Morowa.I had recovered steady enough and Mary just warned us to be careful with our associates. My palms turned moist with the idea of going back to school after all the crazy things that had happened.Val and Sky stood alongside each other in the parking lot waiting for me. I gave them a small wave and Warren laughed lightly from beside me while finding a space to park.He had barely stopped when I hopped out if the moving vehicle.If my life was a movie, this would probably have been the scene which was done in slow motion.After being smashed in a long, deep hug from Val which took away my breath, I turned to a nervous, fidgeting Sky. Why would Sky be nervous about meeting me again. We just shared happy glances but didn't make any body contact."So are we gonna stand here like statues or get to classes, " Warren broke us out of our dazes before Val dragged me to first period."Mowa, many things have happened during your
Mary decided to throw a little party to celebrate her united family and maybe bring her children closer to her.No mater how much she demanded their attention, they always acted aloof around her. Of course they paid her the due respect she needed but she wanted more than that.Dario's hands twirled one thick strand of her hair while she was drowned in her thoughts."What is it Amour?" He asked after noticing her absentminded state. "If you don't want to throw the party, it's fine, we can cancel it.""No," she rushed out and bit on her lip. "That's not the case."He changed his position so he could squat in front of her. "Then what is it?"Mary sighed. She wasn't planning on spoiling his mood or anything but it was chewing in her insides and threatening to reduce hey to nothing is she didn't speak."It's just I can't help but feel like my children don't want to get closer to me."His wor
His head rested against my lap, a comfortable weight while I ran my singers through his thick locks. Who would've thought my creep would be this guy. This intelligent, beautiful, caring guy with the most enchanting eyes."Why are you looking at me like that?""Like how?""Intense." He sat up and faced me on the large couch. "Like I'm gonna vanish into thin air.""What if you do?"His laughter filled the room and I breathed in concentrating on the sound. He didn't get it. Everything that had happened up took this point and he still stood beside me laughing at my question. Might sound cheesy but I couldn't imagine another day without him. Like a drug, he became addictive. My addiction."I won't," he said with conviction. "And even if I did, I'd hold you so I won't disappear alone." "Great plan."We laughed at our little inside joke and I attempted to braid his hair but only came ha
Different fragrances and colognes mingled and mixed together with the movements of men in suits and women in long or short evening gowns and huge bonnets perched on their heads.At the top of the stairs, her eyes searched the room hoping to meet the only people that mattered to her at the moment. A hand on her shoulder distracted her sight from the massive double doors left ajar with guest spilling in to the vast room to stare into his concerned gaze."They'll be here."Easier to say and harder to believe."I don't know, I'm not worried about Kovu, it's Kara." She glanced at the door again."You still haven't told then their real names have you?""They're not ready."He stepped behind her, nuzzling her before placing a kiss on it. She relaxed into the huge, warm man with a sigh.His head still lowered, he slid his hands over her hips pulling her into him to feel his ha
Ariana's voice came out loud in the void silence of my room as I searched for the blasted phone with my eyes closed, raining curses on the person calling me at this time of the night."Warren speaking." I rubbed my eyes still facing the ceiling."Hey son, your mother is having an episode of coughing and is spitting out her guts and we're in the way to the hospital right now, please meet us there beca—." He literally yelled threatening to destroy my ear drums while an engine revved in the background followed by coughs."Dario, the road!" Her warning drowned his voice before a the line dropped with silence."Dario!" The phone bug into my face where I breathed down the mouthpiece praying nothing bad had happened.My hands dailed his number again, my fingers slipping in the wet screen from my sweaty palm. Nothing added up. Zhurah coughing and the line cutting off abruptly?
Glistening and bouncing light off each other, both rectangular caskets stood beside each other. People gathered around a few feet away from them as we all bowed our heads waiting for the Reverend to say the final prayers.My eyes felt ran out of tears as I held unto my new brother's arm like a life line cause I felt the earth would shift from under me if I let go.I just met her and we hadn't even connected the way a mother and daughter should and this happened. Her eyes, similar to mine, shone in my mind as she smiled up, warding off the chill of the world around me."I'm so sorry.""My deepest condolences.""She was such a strong woman, unfortunate really.""Are you sure they're even really twins, what if the boy was adopted?""What an unusual pair."All whispers, good and bad were directed at us even as we paid our homage to our mother. Hard to believe that she really laid insi
Deep and varying shades of the sun set set the dark brown of his eyes off , the warmth of his palm over mine a silent reassurance he didn't plan in going anywhere anytime soon. His silence said it all while he waited for me to sift through and try to solve the puzzle of emotions clashing against each other, demanding my attention in my mind."Who would've guessed it?"Even with my eyes concentrated on the miniature view of the city below us and the cars, lights, people, movements seemed to take slow motions but I knew they hurried but it made no difference from this distance, I noticed his head tip back and he drew in an audible breath.He didn't give me a response, silently urging me to continue. I sigh and found his hand giving it a small squeeze."Who would've thought my creep would turn out to be this annoying being beside me."That drew a silent chuckle from him and he tightened his hold in my hand. "True." He
