Tiara was sitting alone on a swing in the garden. She moved the swing with her feet slowly. Tiara was waiting for Aland. He said he want to buy her a drink. The little girl looked up to see some canaries perched on a tree. Then Tiara looked down, turned to observe a pair of her shoes that were slightly dirty with dust.
Her sapphire eyes widened as someone spilled water over her head. She can hear some people laughing at her when the water splashed down on her tiny body.
"Hey, do you guys know why she didn't scream?" one boy asked another of his friends.
"Because she's dumb!" replied his friend. "Haha!"
"Why is this fucking orphan looking down? Are you scared of us, huh?"
"She must be scared, boss."
One of them grabbed Tiara's hair, forcing her to look up. She glared at the child with the dark brown hair in front of her.
"What? Want to fight me? You should pay respect to your seniors!
"We're home." Yura, who heard her little brother's voice from the door, immediately approached the two of them. She smiled gently. "Welcome back!" She said while ruffling her brother's hair, "wait... Is this a plaster? Did you get hurt, Al?" "I-I fell on the ground while playing with Tiara." "Hm? Is it true, Ara?" She asked while looking at Tiara. The little girl nodded, justifying his words. "You should be careful next time." "I promise to be more careful, Yura." "Good boy. Well, you two take a shower first before we get dinner." They both walked to their rooms. Yura was busy cleaning the living room again. Not long after that, the doorbell rang. "Yeah, wait a minute!" Yura put down the cloth she was holding and opened the door. A woman in her thirties was standing at the door with a boy behind her.
"You fucking devil child!" The woman's words kept popping up in Tiara's head. She hugged her knees tightly and buried her face in them. The sound of their laughter and when she punched the face of their leader who had beaten Aland. She remembered everything. That time it wasn't the blood on her right hand that scared her. She felt like she enjoyed the frightened expression on the boy's face as well as the sensation when she hit the boy's face with her fist. It might be true if she was indeed a demon. She didn't deserve to be born into this world. Raindrops began to fall from the sky. The boy with amber eyes ran while looking around. He paused for a moment and then shouted Tiara's name loudly. 'Where exactly did she go?' "Kim Tiara! Ara!" he shouted. The rain was getting heavier than before. The girl walked with her head down. She didn't care anymore about
'If you want to survive, you only have two choices. Kill or be killed.' . . ☘ ☘ ☘ I took a deep breath looking at the laptop screen in front of me. Blank. There was only a white page with a flickering cursor. I have not finished the task of writing the report that William gave me since this morning. My fingers started to move, typing a few words that appeared on the screen. However, I hastily deleted the sentence earlier. My hands ruffled my long hair that looked even messier. I am really fed up with this task. I glanced at my phone vibrating on the table. There appears to be an incoming message on my
The sound of water drops entered my ears. Slowly I opened my eyes. I winced in pain while holding my head which still felt dizzy. I glanced around. Looks like I am trapped in a damp and dirty place, like a dungeon. The pungent smell of rotting corpses pierced my sense of smell. I could not see any further. It is dark. They only use a few torches as a means of lighting. "What place is this?" Suddenly I remembered the figure of the little boy who bumped into me this afternoon. I have to save that kid. Before that, I have to get out of this prison first. I stepped closer to the cell door, touching the iron bars in front of me. I pulled my hand away when my body was electrocuted. "Think about finding another way to get out of here. Destroying this cell is too impossible." There was the sound of approaching footsteps. Two men in black suits walked towards me. One of them took a small remote from h
.."CAPTAIN, I'll go first. Honestly, I'm so tired," Claire complained to William, who was busy removing some things from the trunk of the car."Yes, I know. You can rest."Claire walked away. After unloading all the things, he closed the trunk of the car. William moved the items into his room. Then, he walked towards Tiara's room. He was about to ask for a report that she had been working on since this morning.William knocked on the door in front of him quite loudly while calling her name. There was no answer from within."Is she asleep?" he muttered softly.William slowly opened the wooden door and stepped inside. "It's so dark. Why doesn't she turn on the light?"'CLICK!'The dark brown irises widened when he didn't see her figure in the room. William runs fast to the bathroom. She is not there. William took out his phone, dialed Tiara's num
The boy quickly withdrew his hand, splitting the large man's body in front of him into two halves. The man's body fell in front of Tiara. Blood oozed out soaking the ground around them. The screams of the audience exploded when they saw the unexpected ending of the fight in front of them. The man in the fancy suit up there looked panicked. He was about to leave his chair, but then he stopped. The boy was suddenly standing right in front of him. "You want to run away, bastard?" "Do not come closer!" threatened the man while pointing his gun at the boy with the black hair. The boy walked casually closer to him ignoring the threat that the man had made. The women who accompanied him ran away screaming hysterically. 'BANG!' His irises widened when he saw the boy with the black hair caught the bullet with his bare hand. The man shot again. However, the
The beautiful woman with blonde hair gently ruffled his hair. Louis, who intended to protest against his mother's treatment, chose to remain silent when he saw the queen smiling softly. "Take good care of her. I'm leaving." "Hn." A second later his mother disappeared from there. Louis walked to his room. He opened the door. The man with black hair glanced at the girl who was sleep on his bed. Tiara, who had only been pretending to be asleep, immediately opened her eyes when she felt someone climbing onto the bed. She looked to the other side. Her sapphire eyes met Louis's two dark obsidian. “W-why are you here?!” “....” "Are you-" Tiara's words were stopped because the man's right hand suddenly gripped her cheeks tightly. Louis' black onyx eyes glared at her. "This is my room, idiot. You should be grateful cause I let you sleep her
The rain is tipping down throughoutthecity. A pit patter of thunder breakthrough a dark and ragged cloud—Itstumultuouscovered march with the raindrops and keep the little girl awake. Tiara cowered up under her blanket. She closed her ears tight. A cold sweat was streaming down her head.Her little lips drifted, calling for someone.“M-mom ... Mommy ....”The five-year-old caught the sound of someone walking up the stairs. She did not move on her bed. She is too scared even to open her eyes. Suddenly, someone pulls her thick blanket, Tiara shocked.“Honey, are you okay--““Mom!”Hyo-jin hugged her daughter’s tiny body immediately. Her mother smiled while rubbing Tiara’s head slowly.“I am scared, Mom.”“I'm here, Honey. Don’t be afraid.”“Please, don’t leave me.”“Of course not. It’s okay. The rain is going to over soon. Mom,
