Dahlia gazed at the beautiful streets of Manhattan from the lobby of the top floor of her husband's company building.She couldn't help but be mesmerized each time she thought of everything they'd gone through to get to this point. Her hand rested on her bulging stomach and she smiled to herself. She could remember the feeling of panic she'd felt when she'd found out that she was pregnant with Arch's first child, seven years ago. She'd been shaken with horror because she couldn't bear to raise a child with his or her father in prison. For the sake of her love for Archer, she'd kept the child. The past seven years has been nothing but hell. She could remember clearly the day he was released from prison.*****Flashback***********Thirteen months earlier, Dahlia hurriedly got her six years old son dressed with her heart thudding madly against her chest. Her son who was a carbon cop
3RD PERSON "You don't give up, do you?" Skull said, stumbling to his feet. Red leaned against the wall, glaring at him. "No, not this time. I'm bringing you down even if I have to go down with you" Red said, ignoring the aches in his body."Fine, you asked for this"Skull clenched his jaw and lunged forward with his knife. The tip of the knife made contact with Red's skin briefly. Red ducked and dodged, arms and feet working swiftly. Outside the room, Vanessa and Axel had caught up with the others. They had a few bruises here and there. "What's going on?" Vanessa asked, looking confused."Red is in there with Skull" Vanessa and Axel paled instantly."He's going to get himself killed" Axel said, terrified.He grabbed a fire extinguisher and began to smash the door handle.****Red groaned, clutching his rib section. Skull was a bloody mess, he could barely stand on both feet.Red knew it
DAHLIA I tried moving my arms but failed since the ropes binding me was tight as hell. Skull had made sure of that. I groaned inwardly, trying to move my fingers. It was of no use, I couldn't get myself out of there. I let out an exasperated sigh. The door of the room opened and Trevor walked in. I heaved a sigh of relief when he began to untie me. "Here, use it only when it's necessary. Shoot to disarm, okay?" He said, placing a gun in my hands. "Go, find Red. I don't know where Skull is keeping him but you have to find him before it clocks twelve" Trevor said. I nodded and waited till he was gone before I sneaked out of the room. I just knew that I had to find Red as quickly as I could. I moved past some of the workers, my hood hiding my face from view. "Wait a minute, isn't that Dahlia Malone?" One of the men said and I froze."It's her, alright"Panicking, I increased my pace. One of them grabbed me from behind
UNKNOWN "Boss, Silver Stone is here" Dagger, my new top assassin said to me.Bringing the glass of martini to my lips, I stared at him."Tell him to come in" I ordered. Dagger left my office and shortly returned with Stone."How's it going with that rebellious son of mine?" I asked.Trevor smirked."He has no idea what you're planning for him" "Good. Very good, Stone. Now, tell me, what are they planning to do?" I asked, rubbing my fingers together."For starters, they are planning to assassinate you in the most gruesome way possible"I chuckled."He underestimates me after all, doesn't he?" I said."Of course, he does. He wants you to come after him. He says he's sick of running""Tell me more" I demanded."He's going to have you cornered when you come after him. I think you shouldn't underestimate him, either""You can leave now" I said and he nodded, before leaving my office.I chuckled,
RED "She was right all along" Lee said, letting out a sigh."She was" I agreed."I can't believe she did what she did" He said, watching Lia as she dressed Vanessa's burns. "She can be daring most of the time. You should know that" I shrugged."D'you think she's starting to feel something for Axel?"I smirked."Maybe? Who knows? After all, I was once in love with her. She's not so bad, Lee. She just has so many problems. She's angry with herself... angry at everyone else. She's not happy.... She's depressed" I said.Lee frowned, biting his lower lip."I guess everyone deserves a second chance" he said.Lia walked up to me, pressing a kiss to my forehead."How's Axel?" I asked."Oh, he's fine. He's exhausted and his neck is sore from being choked by some huge creature. That's what he told me anyway" "Huge creature? Huhn?" Lee said, shaking his head, amused."Axel has a thing for exaggeration
DAHLIA Panic invaded my mind when I realized that Red's temperature was skyrocketing. His breathing was strained and even in his unconsciousness, pain was evident on his face. Sharp tremors took over his body, it was terrifying.Axel walked in with the heated knife."He's worsening" I said, tears filling my eyes."Oh God" Axel breathed.I took the knife from him."Hold him down" I said and Axel nodded.I pressed the hot knife to his infected wound, tears threatening to spill.The door opened.Lee and Tori walked in, looking flustered."How bad is it?" Lee asked, taking out the drugs."Very bad. He's worsening" I said, wiping away the sweat on his chest.Lee paled, worry evident on his face.I managed to force the right dosage of the drugs into Red's mouth."How exactly do you know what drug to give him?" Lee asked."My brother, Nolan. He got into a brawl with so
DAHLIA "What the hell just happened?" Lee asked, looking very worried."He's burning up" I said, placing a hand on Red's forehead."Oh shit. I think I know what's wrong with him" Lee said, his eyes wide with panic. I watched him grab Red's arm and began to take off the bandage on his arm.We all let out a horrified gasp. His wound looked somewhat red and inflamed. "Okay, this is bad" Tori muttered."I can fix this but he'll need medicine" I said.Lee clenched his jaw."Tell me what you'll need. I'll get it" he said."Lee, you know it's risky" Vanessa said."So, what do we do? We let him die?" Tori spat, glaring at her."I was just going to say that he has to go with someone" Vanessa said, her face pale."I think we should tie her up and gag her. She won't be able to do anything, that way" Axel said, leaning against the wall. "Woah, you're actually.... standing" Lee sai
RED Lia had helped Vanessa to get cleaned up. She no longer looked like she'd just been dragged through a pile of stones but it didn't change the fact that she looked miserable. "Can I have a glass of water, please?" She said to Lee, her voice shaky and weak.I couldn't help but wonder what had happened to her. As far as I was concerned, Vanessa had always been Skull's favourite lady. Lee handed her a glass of water and I watched her trembling hands grip the glass tightly.Lee nudged me."We need to talk" he whispered."Alright" I muttered."You guys go ahead. I'll be fine" Vanessa said, bringing the glass of water to her split lips. Lee and I left the sitting room. Tori and Lia were sitting on the kitchen counter. "I know you guys have a lot of questions-" I said and Lia shook her head."Actually, we have tons of questions. Who is she? How does she know you two? How does she know that we're here?
