Somewhere in a large exclusive housing community, everyone was fast asleep in their expensive residences. Everyone, except for one scared individual who was living in the biggest and most luxurious mansion in the whole residential village. His whole house was in darkness, except for the flashlight of his smart-phone and his laptop’s screen.
Someone has cut the main electrical source! Why aren’t the back-up generators kicking in? But I’m sure the special security setup will still work because it has its own power source…
The slightly overweight banker loaded slugs into his collector 1887 Winchester lever shotgun with shaking and sweaty hands. It was a collector’s item that he had acquired at an auction due to his penchant for purchasing Terminator 2-related collectibles. Of course, he knew it should not be used for shooting a possible assassin that’s out to kill him at that very moment, but what can he do?
I know this gun costs a fortune but it’s the only one in my study as of the moment. And my life, literally, depends on it right now!
Meanwhile, as the nervous financial adviser finally pulled back the barrel’s slide with a loud clack, a shadow noiselessly passed behind him. You could easily see that its silhouette was holding at least two long sharp weapons but before you could even be sure, the dark figure disappeared from sight.
The trembling banker felt the slight movement in the air and whirled behind him, partly in panic, partly as a natural defensive reaction.
”I can feel you near, y-you BASTARD! You won’t be able t-to get me! If you k-kill me, you will N-NEVER be able to get out of here a-alive! If my heartbeat s-stops, the whole house g-goes on automatic l-lockdown and it has emergency p-power to do it. My b-bodyguards will be able to k-kill you for sure!”
A long hollow silence. Then a deep, husky voice whispers into his ear...
“Then all I need to do is to bring you out of the house before I end your miserable life.”
”Who, w-wait… What the, it’s Y-YOU!”
A hollow thump resounded within the whole study. It’s followed by an even louder thud, which almost echoed within the expansive but deathly silent mansion.
”Thank you for informing me early on, you lame excuse of a friend. Makes my job a lot easier to complete.”
A few moments later, one could hear a large cloth bag stretching, along with a number of scraping and scratching sounds. For the finale, a shotgun slid to the other end of the room with a harsh clatter.
Then complete silence, except for the midnight insects’ chirruping coming from the gloomy outdoors.
As the sun came up, the mansion’s staff were now in a frenzy upon seeing the drops of blood in the study, along with their boss’ beloved shotgun that’s still loaded and lying on the floor. The authorities were immediately called in but they could not find any signs of forced entry, exits, or unfamiliar fingerprints inside the study or even the whole house. The only sure finding was that the blood on the floor belonged to the absent banker.
Two days later, the police were able to find the missing man.
Once the unfortunate multimillionaire’s body was fished out from the river nearest his home, it was already twice its normal size and the skin had the same color of a dead squid left out too long in the sun. Also, his tongue had been cut out, his fingernails savagely removed and other signs of torture can be found all over his body.
His face, meanwhile, was frozen in place with a horrified, open-mouthed expression as if he was screaming endlessly as he died.
Finally, across his chest, a word was carved with large slashes, obviously with the use of a long knife or even a short sword. The wounds’ dried blood marks showed that the man was still alive when the carvings were made on his rounded torso.
The very next day, around two cities away, the banker’s killer reads of the discovery of his victim by the authorities on his wide-screen, state-of-the-art smart-phone. He secretly smiles and tucks the phone away into his expensive leather jacket before riding away in his powerful high-end motorbike.
So she’s entering the shower. Good! Now, it’s my turn to move...As usual, Hero has been watching her all night from the balcony opposite her apartment. He could smell the appetizing scent of her cooking. That would be her infamous chicken and pork casserole, which will be her meal for tonight, and then her packed lunch for tomorrow. If I’m lucky, she would be offering that delicious dish to me after our class when we eat together.But at the same time, he realizes that if he’s unlucky, s
“Hello darling, I’m so happy to see you reading again. No more headaches?”The obese man in front of her smiled widely, his rounded cheeks stretching to accommodate his toothy grin. If there was anything his wife really loved, it’s his jolly countenance, especially in the mornings. Sometimes work for him demanded that he goes home in the early hours of the day before sunrise and he knows that his wife is not happy with that. But what can a man do if he is overly busy with his newly acquired business? Or actually, his wife’s newly acquired business?”I’m fine my love, please stop worrying. My blood pressure has not been overly high for the past two weeks. And yes, I still prefer the traditional paper for my news reading instead of a tablet, thank you,” replied the hefty male while turning the page of the full newspaper in front of him.The slim graceful woman glides to the back of the lumbering man and hugs him from behind, enveloping him in layers of sweet-strong perfume and the rich
“So are you done with your phone call, darling?” the diva wife inquires after her apprehensive husband has slipped back his smartphone into his suit’s internal chest pocket.“Yes, I am, but I really need to go right now. There’s actually an emergency that I have to fix, my love.”“Oh no, I was so hoping for even an hour to have a little chat with you. You haven’t been home early these past few…”“I know, love. I promise to make it up to you once your son and I are done with our future plans for your father's businesses, alright?””Of course, my darling Antonio. I’m just so lucky to have you and Hero who are intent to fix everything and make all of these questionable enterprises finally legal and legitimate. I am both so proud of you!”The large man hurriedly kisses his slim-framed wife, then motions to his bodyguards to pick up his attache case, “And we both love you so much, my forever beautiful darling. Don’t do anything straining or stressing today, alright. I’ll try my best to be h
Lyra is feeling the rush, the exhilaration, and the ultimate freedom of her ride and she wishes so bad that it would last forever…But like any good thing in this world, it will always end. So I’ll just enjoy this moment while I still can.
Hero is feeling the rush, the exhilaration, and the ultimate freedom of his ride and he wishes that it would last forever…But like any totally amazing experience, they would usually end on a cold note. So yeah, I plan to enjoy every bit of this wonderful feeling while I still can.The presence of his professor behind him is giving this mid-20's old student a hard time, but he’s managing to concentrate on the road despite it all. His rider’s curvy arms were hugging him tightly from behind. He could feel her small feminine hands almost grabbing his muscular eight-pack as if her life depended on it. Her torso and her legs were still an inch away from him but even so, her firm hold on him is still giving him a hard-on.Yep, at the speed I’m going, I’m not surprised. I don’t see why I should slow down, though. All the more reason for her attention to be on other things besides the humungous bulge in my pants.Hero moans a bit as his professor’s dainty hands firmly grip his abs as the bike
The motorbike parking area has a lot of vacant spaces so it didn't take too long before they are already walking through the hospital’s main entrance. While his professor fills out some forms and checks out certain information at the nurse's station, Hero decides to check his large-screened, high-tech smartphone.He stares at it for a while, his eyes narrowed to slits while his lips twist in a slightly upset expression. The room was a mess and the woman unrecognizable by the time he was through. But he was on a high, unlike any drug would give him. It's been a while since he's gotten this sort of thrill from a job.

Thirty minutes later after he had left Lyra's condominium building, Hero is already parking his bike in his special spot at his workplace. That was actually a record time since he usually takes an hour to get there from school. Lyra’s condo unit was further away.Whenever he’s deep in thought, he would always speed through the roads, letting the fast winds and velocities drive away his problems. Usually, it worked.Latest chapter
