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
I am currently sitting in the school canteen. Yup! The canteen with Catherine. Yes! Catherine and I'm smiling Yeah! Smiling for the first time in freaking 6 years.Okay, maybe that's an exaggeration, I do smile sometimes but it's rare for me to smile in the same room as Natalie."Yeah, and then my brother got a green bean stuck up in his nose" Catherine said laughing.She was telling me about the pranks her brother and her play on each other and all I do is smile. As funny as it is, all I did was smile.Catherine's laugh almost filled the canteen that all eyes were on me. Okay on her, no, on us.The laughter on the jocks table cleared as everyone was now looking at Catherine who was eating her food, still talking and laughing not noticing the stares and glares she is receiving."um... Kate?" I tried to caution her but she isn't listening."fu
It was from a woman who is living about two towns away from mine. I didn't even read it cos it too far for my likingI ignored it and continued my home work. After a while, I checked my laptop again and saw another request.Hey, I'm Katie and I need you to look after Rose, rose is my cat. Call me if you are interested (number)"Ew, no, I hate cats" I said to myself.A lot more request came but I'm not comfortable with all. Just as I'm about to lose hope, another request came.Hi Melody, I'm Tanya and please I want you to look after my mother. It's just from 3-7. I do come back from work around 7. I have a son but he's useless lol, I'll be glad if you can accept my offer. This is my address (address) and my number (number)I smiled as I read the letter. "Yes! This is the one and it's just the next street".I picked my phone
I stayed calm at my spot. She came near me annoyed that I didn't respond.She slapped me but I still stayed rooted at my positionHonestly, I've gotten used to her beatings except the slaps though. It was always like she gets good at slapping each day. The scars of the beating only stay on my body, it doesn't hurt.She was furious that it still didn't affect me.She chuckles crazily "I see you're trying to prove stubborn" she says againI looked everywhere but her eyes."Look at me you whore" she took the bottle of her alcohol and broke it on my shoulder.The skin tore a bit and blood gush out but she wasn't through. She pounced on me, scratch, bite, beat.After she was tired, she slump on the floor and that was when I had the chance to run to my room.I locked the door imm
