Fear enveloped when I arrived at the mansion. Dead bodies of maids were lying everywhere in the front yard. The metallic scent of blood was giving me a feeling of gagging. I looked around hoping that I could find someone breathing but I was too late. Some were beheaded, some were stabbed multiple times, and chopped like a piece of meat.
I snapped my head in the mansion’s direction. I knew that scream and it was coming from the mansion. I ran and ran. Ran as fast as I could. I pushed the mansion’s door wide open. In front of me was dad wearing his usual coldness. In front of him stood Amanda. She was dressed like the lady in red. I saw no emotion in her eyes.
Dad placed his hand on her shoulder and whispered to her, “say hi to your sister.”
Amanda slowly raised her and waved at me. “Hi...”
Dad’s lips twitched. He didn’t like what Amanda did. His fingers turned black and grew long. Di
“Are you sure about that?” Grip asked.“Yes, bring me back to the mansion. I chose to front my fear.” I firmly said.He nodded and smiled. He was proud. He grabbed my waist and pulled me nigh him.Lulu’s and Dorothy’s name was already written on the scroll of death and today was the thirteenth day from Xyrus’ supposed to be death.

I dropped my phone after hearing what he said. I hastely went back to the elevator and ran again toward the gym. It was passed two in the afternoon already.“Serra, here!” Mandy waved her hand at me.I ran in thier direction. I gasped for air. “Where is Amanda?”“Amara called and they were together at the moment. What’s going on?” She looked both worried and confused.I looked at Lulu’s direction and Mandy already got what I meant.“Lulu!” I approached her.She turned around and faced me. She was wearing an ice-cold expression, far from the Lulu that I knew. Something was really not right here. I saw Kate died but her name wasn’t carved at the black scroll. I shook the doubt in my mind and focused to the present.“Lulu, grabbed my hand and get out of the body.” I lend my hand to her but just like before she just stared down my hand.“Yes, Lulu.
