"What?"Her asking me the question again even though she heard me right annoyed the hell out of me, but still i repeated it again."I am going to Rome.""You can't just go to Rome!" Sh
He looked at me. The dark brown of his eyes staring at my green ones a little surprised. His lips curved up into a wrinkled smile."How are you?" My father asked, taking a step closer and i took one back.It had been four years since i had last seen him and five years since the divorce. Back then he had been so hell bent on getting custody of me b
Have you ever been chased by a bull? I haven't but with what i am feeling right now, i could imagine what it feels like, or maybe the feeling would be less nerve racking than this, either ways i am very sure it would feel much better than having a gun aimed directly on your head while knowing that just a little pull of your enemies finger could end your life right there and then, and there was no one to come save you.My eyes were shinning wide open and my heart was beating frantically as a result a fear, a feeling that i have recently become quite accustomed to in a matter of a week.He opened his mouth and spat some words in Italian. Venom laced in every word, words that i could not even piece together as he adjusted his index finger on the trigger."W-what are you d-doing?" I stuttered."You!" He repeated his previous word, squeezing tighter around the silver pistol "what do you want from me again?".Again? Have we ever even met before? "I just want to talk, please do not do what yo
It was like i was completely frozen. Nothing made sense anymore, the clouds were darker and full of terror, my mind was a fog of guilt and so much more, the only thing that i could see was the body of the man who had a wonderful smile, a man who had served me his mothers pasta recipe, sat me close to a fire because i was cold, served me coffee and listened to a stranger pour out all the weird shit she had gotten herself into and still offered help. The only thing i could see was that magnificent human being lying dead on the floor in a pool of his own blood.T
They were silent. Simply looking at me without an emotion in their eyes. I did not mean for Ming's dad to hear the conversation, but the man is like a sloth, seriously! i did not even hear his foot steps when he came in.Ming shot her eyes tight, took in a deep breath and looked me in the eye "No! you didn't. I know you, you would never hurt a soul, so stop playing jokes and talk to me."
Standing before him all I could wish for was a hole to open up and swallow me. Swallow up all the embarrassment growing in the pit of my abdomen.He looked just like he did the last time we met. His golden blonde hair neatly brushed to perfection, the attractive stubble under his chin, million dollar suit in check and his blue eyes looked brighter than ever, except this time they were not focused on my face, but on the bond on my hands. So much for not wanting to meet in an awkward situation next time!I faked a light smile, pretending i almost did not recognize him "Damien?"He looked back up at my face and took a step closer "why do you have a...." he trailed off, analyzing my hands. It was fabric, torn fabric that Mr Lee had just wrapped around my wrists which was why it was much harder to loosen. "that on your hands?"I looked down at my wrists and scoffed "It's a stupid game i'm playing. Friends you know... they can make you do a lot of crazy stuff."From the corner of my eyes i c
By the time I had gotten into the really expensive looking car with two of John's escorts behind me and by what he had said to me earlier, I know there are at least four others in a distance i cannot spot, i sat right next to Ming who had her eyes shut with dried tears on her red cheeks.I did not know what was going on in her head and I wish I did. Her dad did not follow the same vehicle with us, i think he had some really important stuff that he had to attend to because he left before I even ended my conversation with Damien.It did not take long before we reached our destination and I was glad to step out of the silence suffocating car. Ming stopped to say a few words to the driver and then pulled out her phone to make a quick call while i just stud in front of her current home, taking in every inch of it.It was just like ever
Say what now?I stared at my best friend in slight shock. Okay i already knew he thinks i am crazy but i did not think it was that bad."You're joking." I said and she frowned."Take a good look at me Dian, do i look like I'm joking?"No.I closed my eyes and sucked in a deep breath. It was worse than I imagined. I could not let this happen. I would not let it happen."I'm guessing you don't know every thing then." Faye said this time.Ming shot Faye a glare and placed a hand on her hip, waiting."I'm not crazy." I said "everything that i told you in the plane is real and I'll prove it to you."I took a step closer to my friend and pulled up my sleeves, showing the both of them the marking behind my wrist."What is that?" They both said at th
