The judge arrived and the two solicitors, representing the plaintiff and defendant started all their talks.
I paid Keen attention. Natasha keeps giving me dirty looks.
I wonder what was in her mind. I looked at Natalie too and she had the same look her mother is giving me.
What on Earth is their plan? She sent me out of the house and now she wants me back. To do what? To kill me? I asked myself.
At one time, Aunt Natasha was called to say her own part of the story. Her face changed from the mean look to a very soft one like one who is troubled.
"I don't know why she ran away. I know that night, I scolded her for coming home late. I was worried something will happen to her. The following morning, she ran away" she said as she Hurst out crying
I was amazed at such an acting. She should probably go to Hollywood, since she's this good in acting.
I was asked to exp
A week later, everything has been going out smoothly except Kendall though.It's not that he still isn't talking to me but he just won't go out with me or relate with me as before.Does he know about the serial killer already? Is he scared he'll end up being like Josh or worse than Josh if he is seen together with me?Speaking of Josh, he has been release three days ago and the bozo is more energetic.I think the doctors added some crazy drugs into his prescription.My work at the restaurant is going fine. Natalie and her minions haven't showed up ever since the incident.Going and coming is now stressful as I mostly walk there now and when coming back, Axel sometimes give me a ride home.We've all planned to have some fun today.We invited Axel to the house and Kendall didn't have trouble with that.No one was ready to cook so we d
MELODY'S POINT OF VIEWThe following day, Kendall offered to drive me to work.He didn't even apologize or explain the reasons for his change of behavior the past days but I understood that everyone of us is tensed so I didn't bother to ask since he is back to his original self now.He dropped me off at the front of the restaurant."Don't leave when you close. I'll come pick you up okay?" He said and I nodded.He gave me a light kiss on the lip and I smiled. Yeah, we are back to this."Later" I said as I unlocked the car door and got down from the car. I watched as he drove off and I turned to enter the restaurant.I looked around again, feeling someone's eye on me.Everyone was busy going to their own place of work. Everyone was busy walking or chatting.I wanted to start enter the restaurant when I saw a man on wheel turning his w
The ride back home was silent as I wondered what could have happened. Could it be that he had been killed by the serial killer? I thought."We'll find you a job else where" Kendall said trying to convince me."I'm not worried about the job. I'm worried about Axel. He can't just disappear like that with no trace. What if he has been murdered?" I told him."That's a crazy thought. Take it off your mind." He said.I didn't say anything again. I just kept quiet."I have to be at a friend's place. I'll be back before dinner." He said dropping me off at home as he zoomed off.I entered the house and thought about how boring today will be. I decided to call Catherine if she's busy so we can hang out."I'm sorry, I have a very important place to be. Infact, I'm on my way there. I promise I'll make it up to you" she said."Alright, see you later" I hung up a
"Dad?" I said surprised."You...you...what are y..y..?" I stammered unable to complete my word. He was dead. He died seven years ago, he died."You were thinking I died right?" He said."Well, I almost" he said nodding his head."That is why I can't walk again" he said as he pulled the wheel and came out behind the table."You...you...you can't walk?" I said tears starting to drop from my face."Yes. I can't" he said."You...why...after all these years? You left me alone. You fucking left me alone to suffer. You were alive. You were not dead. You never bothered to come visit me. You never cared to see how I am, who I have become. Why Daddy? Why?" I said crying."I have always been with you. I was there on every birthday you did the past Seven years even though no one celebrated it for you. I was there when you graduated from middle school. I was the
My Dad, Tanya, Aunt Grace, Kendall, Catherine are Josh are currently helping me move my belongings back to our house.My dad bought a new mansion but I insisted I want to live in my childhood house.He was worried it will bring bad memories if I stay in the house. But I assured him I'll be fine.Aunt Natasha and Natalie are no more in the house and I made a mental note to ask him what has happened to them.All the pictures Natasha and Natalie hung in the sitting room have been put away and new ones were hung.I made the picture I snapped with Josh before his accident, when we were searching through my files into a frame and hung it too."Yup, it's good here" I said adjusting the frame as I got down from the stood Josh held for me.We both admired the picture from our position."I love it" Josh said as he kissed my cheek and I smile.
MELODY'S POINT OF VIEWTen years later."Mommy when ish Josh Uncle coming" Stephanie my three year old daughter said as I'm moving the useless stuffs in the sitting room away.Yes. Three years ago, I gave birth to this natural adorable blond baby girl with blue eyes.Of course Kendall is my husband and I'm now Mrs. Kings. Josh teased us about how Stephanie inherited my hair colour and Kendall's eye colour.Yes, Josh still teases. Did I mention he is Stephanie's favourite. Yup he is.He and Catherine had a boy, Leonard but he is a year older than my Stephanie. He is four years old.Natalie also had a boyfriend when she was in college. His name is Alex.We often tease him and Axel about how similar their names are. We sometimes intentionally interchanged their names which totally freaks them out.Natalie and Alex had a baby girl three
This chapter will explain what happened in Chapter 38 where Axel disappeared.KENDALL'S POINT OF VIEWThe following day, I offered to drive Melody to work again. I've been ignoring her these past days and I couldn't hold it again.I've maintained my distance as the agency required. I don't think I can continue again.It hurts me that I can't explain the reason for the change in my behavior her without exposing the mission.I would have given her an excuse but I don't want to lie to her anymore. The secrets I'm keeping from her is enough.I didn't apologize or explain the reasons for his change of behavior the past days and I'm grateful she didn't ask cos honestly, I don't know how I will explain it to her.I hope this fucking mission ends soon. I wonder what Melody has done to boss in the past that he ask us to protect her.I wonder the relationship
Melody's Point Of View"John hurry or we're gonna be late for the dinner" my mom yells. "Honey I can't find my tie" my dad shouts back from upstairs."Women are known to be the one delaying but you are the one delaying" My mom murmurs as she stomped upstairs to help my dad look for the said tie.After sometimes they both came down ready to go to the dinner."But mom, I want to go with you." I protested"Sweetie it's an adult thing and you will get bored" my mom said trying to convince me.After lots of persuasion, I finally agreed to stay with our neighbor next door.She's a woman in her late twenties. Although she is nice but she can get boring sometimes.I just pick some books and my pencil and some storybooks.I know it's just a day but I'm a nerd and everyone knows that.We al
