Somehow, Susan has begun using a cane(abi my eyes see double ?). "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". I keep believing Susan and Anita will be the ones to effect this revenge. Thanks Silver, you are doing well. Khriztarl, its been ages, hope you are good?

|Re: PLAGIARIZED (The Story Was Just The Beginning) by Adekunlated: 7:21pm On Jan 21|
I don't know but I think Anita will give us the revenge we want not Amilo Raphayes, I love what Amilo did though, instilling fear in Samuel is everything, he's just too proud.

EPISODE TITLE-Run thee the skeletons
After driving past the gate, Amilo Raphayes slow down the bike before he finally raced it to a stop, he took out his helmet and came down from the bike..
"You're welcome.."Lorenzo said walking Amilo's way...
Amilo dropped the helmet on the bike, breathe in the fresh air of the woods before he fused his gaze on Lorenzo.....
"What's up with the drone..?"Amilo ask dropping his eyes on the drone in Lorenzo's hand..
"What do you think.., fùcking special rats..."
"Special rats were here..?"Amilo ask walking past him...
"They weren't..."Lorenzo said walking after him...."It's just the drone.., it has their logo..."
"Has any of the men been out from camp today..?"Amilo ask when Lorenzo caught up with him...
"Cadex was out this morning.. "Lorenzo said troting alongside Amilo..
"Those rats don't know Cadex...."Amilo stated..
"You think the drone wasn't for us....?"
Amilo stop but only to take a breather.., he look Lorenzo's way and continue walking...."I don't think so, we were cautious when we came here but pin your ear to the ground.., if that thing was truly to search us out.., then we need to reach the next plan.."
"How was it..?"Lorenzo ask hastening his steps to catch up with Amilo again..."Is he dead..?"
"He's not.."Amilo said over his shoulder not bothering to stop or face Lorenzo...."We'll be paying him a visit tonight...."
"Why didn't you kill him..?"Lorenzo ask curiously knowing fully well Amilo doesn't miss a target when he's determined...
"I still want him alive.."Amilo replied stopping to look at Lorenzo....."A bullet will be too merciful for him."
Lorenzo nibbed and walk alongside Amilo until they got to where Susan and Henry were sitting....
"And how's is my little sister doing...?"Amilo ask with a smile circling his lips...
Susan didn't say a word, nor did she return the smile....
Amilo crunched down to her sitting level, the exertions of what happened earlier between him and Samuel Cross his head.., he sniffle before he waved it off.....
"You don't look happy to see me.."Amilo said
"That's because I'm not happy...."Susan said rolling the wheelchair from his side to another...
Amilo nibbed and stood up to his feet....."Can you give me and my sister a minute..?"Amilo said to Henry...
Henry hesitated a bit but when he caught Lorenzo looking his way, he quickly move and follow Lorenzo outside.....
Amilo sniffed and folded his hand when he was sure Lorenzo and Henry were out of earshot....."If it must interest you, I gave him a headstart.."
Susan quickly spun the wheelchair around to face him...."Gave who a headstart..?"
"That bastard.."Amilo said folding his hand..."The reason you're in a wheelchair.."
"You met with Samuel..?"Susan ask curiously....
"Well is he dead..?"She ask, a frown engulfing her forehead...
"Not yet..., I realise dead will be too good for him.., I want him alive, I want him brought before you.., I want him kneeling before you.., I want your face to be the last he sees...., after that he can die..."
Susan swallow forcefully , she lower her gaze as she brood over the last time she had met Samuel......
Henry shift his gaze towards the door again with unsettled mind.., what the brother and sister could be discussing bothers him, he knows it isn't his concern but curiousity they say kills the cat....
"Do not worry..."Lorenzo said liting up a cigarette...."He's not going to kill her, he's her brother.. "
Henry exhales and shifts his gaze to Lorenzo.., he turn away his face for a second when Lorenzo puff out the cigarette smoke.....
"How long have you known him..?"Henry said reverting his gaze to him again..
Henry waited a bit before replying..."Amilo..."
"Since he became a criminal.."Lorenzo said puffing out another round of smoke..
"And when precisely was that..?"
The cigar smoke eddied coolly down Lorenzo throat, he puffed it out again in rings which breasted the air bravely for a moment before it disappeared.....
"What are you, a fùcking police, a reporter....?"Lorenzo queried..
Henry's jaw clenched before he replied.."I'm non of that..."
"Why the many questions then..?"
"I'm just curious.."
"Don't be.."Lorenzo said..."Curiousity kills you faster..."
"What happens after he dies..?"Susan ask rolling the wheelchair to another side of the tent...
Amilo sigh before speaking up..."I'm going to leave.."
"So you're just going to leave again..?"Susan queried...
Amilo jut his chin and drew nearer go her..."You know why I have to leave.., I'll be a danger to you..."
"I'm already in danger."Susan fling back.."I need you here with me.."
"You'll cease to be in danger when that bastard finally dies.."
"This isn't about him, this is about us.."
Amilo exhales and took few steps backward....
"Since you left my life has been in shit..."Susan added..
"I can't stay Peppa.."Amilo said crisply..."I'm always on the run..., I don't want you involve in that life..."
"Haven't you noticed..."Susan said with frown lines encroaching on her forehead....."I'm becoming you.., indeed this is our fate..."
Amilo didn't say a word, didn't want to, Susan will never understand while he made those choices he made years ago..., his phone ringtone interrupted his thoughts, quickly he took his phone from his pocket and look at the caller...., it was a burner line, a line he knows very well...., he looked Susan way, she was still smouldering in her frown expression, he shift his gaze from her, took a few steps from where she's standing before he answered the call......
"What do you want..?"Amilo ask over the phone...
"That isn't a way to greet a friend.."Chief Carlos voice sound from the other end..
Amilo's brows drew together at Carlos voice but he didn't say anything...
There was silence on the phone before Carlos voice came again....
"I have a shipment coming in next week, I want you to be there..."..
Amilo look Susan's way but turn his gaze away a second later....."I have plans, i won't be around to do that..."
"Oh come on.."Carlos said from the other end....."I really want you there Amilo..."
"Like I said chief, I have plans.."
"Don't tell me you're declining this offer..."Carlos stated from the other end.
Amilo took the phone from his ears.., he hesitated before he ended the call....
"Bastard.."He sneer silently and move towards Susan....
The bouncer stare blankly at the house, behind his stare was a mountain of thoughts, random thoughts coming in both good and bad.., he shook off the thoughts and return his gaze to his colleague......
"When are we going to build this kind of house..?"He ask his colleague
His colleague who's sitting on a chair just in front of the security house smile..."You need to work hard to get this kind of house.."
"You think our boss worked hard to get this house..., this house was given to him as a gift..."
"Yes.."His colleague drag between his teeth..."After he worked hard to write the story that got him this wealth..."
The bouncer was about replying when they heard a loud bang on the gate.., shocked one of them rushed towards the gate and peep.., his mouth dropped noticing it was the boss..., he didn't waste any time before he opened the gate wide....
Breathing heavily Samuel rushed into the compound.., blood flowed thickly from his body, it poured out from his wounds as if in slow motion, before the bouncers could fathom what exactly happened to him, he slumped to the ground..
"Boss.."One of the bouncers shouted and rushed to his side..
Feeling the blood soaked his shirt, Samuel stare, unable to move as blood gushes from his wounds...
One of the bouncers lifted him in his shoulder and carry him towards the main house.., the other bouncer rang a loud knock on the door, the bouncer didn't wait for the door to be open, he quickly pull the knob down and the door swung open..., they quickly dropped Samuel on the chair when they saw Festus and Success rushing down from the stairs......
Success froze on seeing Samuel, she stood, shocked as blood flow down his neck into his white sleeve...
"Sammy..."Festus shouted running towards him...
Blood gushed with sickening determination from Samuel's neck, as if his own heart sought to pump it from his body, his fingers clamped over the wound, two pale starfish growing paler by the second. The scarlet blood lashed over the chair, painting the scene in which he would be found dead unless he did something very smart and very fast.....
"Call the doctor.."Success blare out, shocked still etched in her face...
The violent red stained Samuel's shaking hands, the colour burned in his mind along with what had happened earlier...., just then he snapped out of it...
"I need your phone..."Samuel said struggling to get up from the chair but quickly realise how futile it was to get up when he felt a slight pain in his leg and fell....
He stood up again with the help of Festus and the bouncers...
"What happened to you..?"Success ask anxiously...
"Call the DPO.."Samuel said ignoring Success question...
"Just do as I say..?"Samuel yelled
With shaking hands, Festus did as he was told, he took his phone out and dialled the DPO's number who answered the call after the third ring....
"Hello.."Festus said before Samuel snatched the phone from him..
"Who is this..?"The DPO's voice sound from the other end...
Breathing heavily, Samuel spoke into the phone...."This is Samuel DPO...."
There was silence from the DPOs end and it was as if he's trying to remenber who Samuel is...
"This is Samuel Okweche Damn it.."Samuel yelled into the phone...
"Oh o.., Mr Samuel.."The DPO said from the other end...
"Someone is trying to kill me.."Samuel said..
Shock swept across everyone's face but none said anything..., Success took a few steps backward by the alertness of the words while Festus looked outside through the window....
"I need security sir..."Samuel added...."I'm scared whoever it is will come to my house.., my life is in danger....."
"I'll send the men i can.."The DPO said from the other end...."Keep me informed about anything..."
"Please i need the men now sir and they should come with guns..."
"I'm sending some men to your house right now..."
Samuel dropped the phone and ended the call and turn towards the bouncers...."Lock the gates.., open for noone except the police..., and protect this house with your life..."
The bouncers exchange glances before one of them manage to speak up..
"Exactly what are we up against sir..?"
Samuel's nostril flare with irritation...."This isn't the time to ask questions, I'm paying you to protect me.., go, get out..."
Without another word, the bouncers left slamming the door on their way out..
"Can you tell us exactly what is going on here...?"Success queried..
To be continued.....

EPISODE TITLE- On hot grounds
Matthew stood on the road as still as the trees, not totally frozen, for just as their budded twigs move so does his hair, his eyes were closed, Tousled auburn ribbons whip about his face, blown by air as fresh as any after a rainstorm.., After several deep breaths he took a step forward, his thoughts were twisting, tuning and sad.., suffocating him with their whispers....
He took another step forward but he was totally weigh down by the heavy burden in his shoulder..., he stood as everyone turn to him, his breathe came in gasps as he remenber what he was told earlier.., just then he moved his eyes from the people approaching him to the three corpse laid on the ground....., the sadness drained through him and before anyone could reach him, he crunched down to the ground and fell to his knees..., hot tears rolled down his eyes but his eyes remain fused on the corpses, the painful dead bodies of his family......
The DPO stare at officer Hannah the moment she entered the office.., a bit confused on how to act, officer Hannah quickly greeted and saluted.., her sudden move made officer Marcus and Thomas chuckle.....
"Why didn't you come with them..?"The DPO ask
Officer Hannah glance at the other two before she returned her gaze to the DPO..."I was using the restroom sir..."
For a second, the DPO just stood staring at her, without another word to her, he shift his eyes to the other officers......."Samuel Okweche called.., he said he need some policemen to go to his house.."
Officer Hannah mouth dropped as the thoughts of what could have happened to Samuel rumbled in her head...
"He added someone is trying to kill him.."The DPO added..
"Who's trying to kill him sir..?"Officer Thomas quickly ask, his tone clearly showing his withdrawal ....
The DPO looked askance at him before he replied the question..."He didn't mention.."
"Are you suggesting we go there sir...?"Officer Marcus ask curiously...
The DPO hesitated a bit before words leap out from his mouth.."I've already sent four other officers to his house not quite long, so no, you won't be going there.."
Officer Thomas sigh, a sigh of relief...
"But I do have another job for you.."The DPO said taking out a newspaper from his table drawer.., he glance at the newspaper before he threw it on the table...
The officers eyes peered at the open page of the newspaper.., right there they knew what the DPO is going to say....
"This lady Titi..."The DPO said.."I believe you all have been brief about the unsure things surrounding her death.."
"She was shot.."Officer Hannah chime in.."A bullet to her head.."
"She couldn't have shot herself.."The DPO said..."Someone killed her..."
Officer Marcus nibbed, they know fully well that someone killed her but who...., so many times they've had reoccurring events, someone dies and is later discovered that is actually someone that killed them but the cases are never solved.., rather they're been closed and forgotten after a while..this case will be no different....
"You all must have know a friend of hers made a tweet, and this tweet happens to involve the mako company..."
"Could someone there be involved in her death.."Officer Hanna cut in..
The DPO look at her then he took a deep breathe before replying..."I haven't said so.., but this tweet since to be going viral and the press are already asking questions and publishing all sorts of articles..., we need to act.., which is why the three of you have been assigned to find out whatever the mako company knows about that nurse death"
"Sir..."Officer Hannah chime in with her right hand a bit above her head, when the DPO turned her way, she continued...."The nurse has been long dead before we found her.., i strongly believe if there's any evidence linking her to the mako company..., it could be destroyed by now...."
The DPO jut his chin before he folded his hand...."What's your job officer...?"
Officer Hannah didn't reply, didn't want to not after knowing the next things that will come out from the DPO'S mouth if she replies him....
When the DPO got no reply, he turn to the others....."I'll like to have a report on how far you've gone by next week...., you're dismissed..."
Without further words, they all saluted and left the office..
Success pace about, Samuel revelation eluding her of words....,every breathe became rasps as fear sink in...
"Who could have want to kill you ..?"Festus ask anxiously moving his eyes to the window at every chance..
Samuel took a deep breathe in attempt to calm his panic, but it didn't work, nothing he does seem to calm him down., he certainly can't be calm not after escaping the clutches of death moments ago.., he remenber the beatings, the severe punches and whipping, if someone hasn't claimed he knows him and confess to seeing everything that happened between him and the one who almost killed him., the angry market traders wouldn't have let him go..., they didn't let him..he escaped..barely....
He turn to Festus, his eyes boiling with rage, then he turn away and made a few steps from him....
"I don't know.."Samuel said turning to face him again..."He was wearing a helmet that covered his face.."
"Who else than one of your many enemies.."Success blare out angrily.....
Samuel looked her way with the firece alertness of her words...
"I told you your stupid decisions will put us in trouble one day.."Success added..
A muscle in Samuel's face twiched into a frown...."Are you crazy or what.., I never asked you to join me, you chose to join me.."
"As if I wouldn't have dropped dead if I had left you..."Success fling back
"Shut your mouth.."Samuel sneer.."Else I'll throw you out of this house.."
"Oh please with all might do it.."Success retorted.."That way I won't be here when whoever wants you dead comes looking for you.."
"Will you two stop.."Festus interjects....."This isn't the time for this.., right now we need to think who's after you...., who else other than Anita and her friend have you offend...?"
Samuel lips curl as he took his gaze from Success to Festus..."Nobody.."
"Seriously nobody..!"Success reiterates with a frown..."Your are always stepping on people Samuel..., because you're rich, everyone is a pauper to you..."
"Will you shut up..?"Samuel raved at her..
Success hissed and folded her arms..
"Could it be Anita...?"Festus ask remembering Success dream...
"It was a male Festus.."Samuel said dragging the words between his lips..."A man tried to kill me..."
"She could have sent someone.."
"From the mental asylum...?"Success cut in ...."You guys are seriously shìtting me..."
Both boys looked at her, when she poked her eyes at them, they turn their gaze away....
"You said Susan is dead, so it can't be her.."Festus said
Samuel made a few steps from him and brood over what had transpired between him and Anita...."Anita isn't mad.."he said returning his gaze to him...
"Wait what..?"Festus queried a bit shocked.."The doctor told us she's mad.."
Samuel nibbed, a pinch of irritation sliced across his face..."Turned out she lied and if she lied about that, she could possibly have lied to us about Susan's death...."
"So Susan could be alive....?"Festus ask curiously....
"I do wish she's dead.."Samuel sneer..."That bitch.."
"If Susan is alive..."Success cut in...
"She could have contacted her brother..."Festus added, a prickle of fear lingering around his nerves...
"Amilo Raphayes..."Samuel mutter...
"That's nonsense.."Success cut in.."If it's Amilo that attacked you, you would be dead.., he's a ruthless killer and a legend.."
"Then who else could possibly want him dead..?"Festus blare out totally running out of names...
"He should tell us.."Success replied pointing at Samuel..."Making enemies is his specialty.."
"You have someone in mind..?"Festus ask Success.
"Oh the list is long..."Success said turning to face Samuel.."Do you remember the waiter you slapped at Dora's party...?"
"Oh please..."Samuel dragged between his teeth..."That idiot poured drink on me.."
"It was a mistake.."Success said.."And you had to slap him so hard in front of everyone.., he was an elderly man for God sake...."
A hard line set across Samuel jaw..."So you think an ordinary waiter got a gun to shoot at me because I slapped him....?"
"I wouldn't rule it out..."Success replied..."I've seen people who killed people because they slapped them.."
Samuel eyes bore into hers when he realise who Success was referring to....
"What about that guy you disgraced publicly when he asked you to stop insulting his girlfriend.., you had your bouncers beat him up almost to an early grave..."
"That riff-raff.."Samuel sneer....."He deserves what he got..."
"His girlfriend only ask to take a picture with you and you rained insults on her.., he only intervened.., you didn't have to kill him.."
"I didn't kill him..."
"He almost died..."
Samuel hissed and look away...
"That's a good excuse to retaliate.. "Festus chime in...."Who knows who he really is.., a cultist, assassin......
"That poverty stricken prat didn't had the guts to stand up to my bouncers...."Samuel cut in...."I doubt he can hold a gun let alone to fire it.."
"Then you really don't know people.."Success interjects......"This is what happens when you provoke too many people...."
Samuel was about replying when the intercom in the room disrupt the discussion with it's loud tone..., for a moment they all stood waiting for who will make a move to answer the call.., when no one did after seconds of staring at each other face.., Festus made the move, he reach the intercom before the tone ended...
"The police are here.."One of Samuel's bouncers said from the other end...
Festus glance up at Samuel before he replied..."Let them in.."
|Re: PLAGIARIZED (The Story Was Just The Beginning) by Silver1996(m): 5:45pm On Jan 27|
The sadness drained through him as he watch the youths laid his siblings and father's corpses in the three graves they have dug..., torrents of tears stream down his eyes, all his friends and well wishers could do was embrace and console him , but neither did the pain nor the anger went away, each breathe he took was suffocating..., why does so much have to happen to them, his sister in a mental asylum, his siblings and only parent dead..., he cluched on his friend's shirt, each gasp from his heavy sobs tore down his throat and his mind raced even as he lost himself in the taunting and painful moment....
He loosened and crunched down to the ground as his friend let him but they didn't take their hands off him, when the first round of sand landed on the graves.., his breathe choked on his lungs as he tried to utter words.., suddenly he towered over his friends but quickly fell back down realising it was too hard to stand on his feet....
No, they couldn't be gone not after they'd promised each other to stay together, to be strong together,.dammit! he pounded the cold floor. Hissed a breath through clenched teeth. But the strength left him, even as he attempted to stand up again, his throat held back something between a sob and a shout...., His lungs rummaged for oxygen, and his sobbing had the same force of someone drowning. The flesh under his ribcage throbbed, his cheeks burned, and his mind created memories and scenarios that made the tears continue....., only then did his seething anger grew like a tumor inside him and all he could think about was one person.., one person who had ruined his entire life, one person who could be responsible for his siblings and father's dead, one person who had made his sister mad and tried to kill him, one person who isn't just his enemy but the family enemy......,one person whose name he'll never forget, even at the verge of death...., one person whose name he'll take to the great beyond, whose name he'll battered with his ancestors and every spirit being....SAMUEL OKWECHE....the evil that walks among men....
Television, now the solution to Mr Smith boredom as he became engrossed on the TV show chuckling and gigling over every funny statement from the characters..., he spun around to face the door when a light knock came on it.., he had instructed his secretary earlier that he needed no disturb and now someone was knocking , a snag to his peaceful moments....
"Come in.."He said slightly taking his eyes back to the TV...
"Good evening sir..."His secretary greeted...
A little frown line encroached on Mr Smith forehead, he's a man that lives strictly by his words and when he says no disturbance, he means no disturbance....
"I'm sorry for interrupting your moment sir, I couldn't adhere to your instructions because this is urgent..."
"What..?"Mr Smith ask after a slight hesitation..
"The police are here.."
Shock swept across Mr Smith face but he didn't show it, didn't want to not in front of his secretary....
"Why are the police here..?"He ask..
"They didn't say sir.., they only said they want to see the person in charge.., they refused me handling it..."
He jut his chin before words muff from his mouth..."Let them in.."
"Yes sir.."She said and left
It wasn't long before she reappear with Officer Marcus, Thomas and Hannah...
"I'll take my leave sir.."She said and left immediately Mr Smith nodded...
Before breaking the silence that enguffed between them, Officer Marcus looked around admiring the interiors and settings of the office..
"Officers.."Mr Smith called reclining his back on his executive chair..."To what do I owe this unannounced visit...?"
The officers glance at each other each waiting for who will speak up first.., after few moments of contemplating in their minds, Officer Thomas spoke up....."Nice office.."
Mr Smith nibbed and look around before fusing his gaze on them again...
Officer Hannah took out a newspaper page from the small bag she hung around her shoulder and placed it on the table....
"Nurse Titiana.."Officer Thomas said pointing at the dead body picture in the newspaper..."Ring a bell..?"
Mr Smith eyes lowered down to the newspaper before he raised his gaze at them again...."What is this..?"He retorted.."You came all this way to ask me if a dead nurse name rings a bell..."
"She was here days before she was found dead.."Officer Marcus chime in...."And we happen to have ask some people a few question before we got up here.., they all said she was here in this office with you..., Smith I believe.."
Mr Smith took a deep breathe.."I'm Smith and yes she was here and I believe whoever told you she came here must have told you the reason she was here.."
"What reason is that..?"Officer Hannah ask immediately
"A job.."Mr Smith stated before reclining his back on the chair again...."She came here seeking for a job of which her qualifications didn't match so we had to declined..., she left after which.."
"Do you know she's dead..?"Officer Marcus ask
Mr Smith nearly chuckle at the flimsy question..."I saw the news....".
"This is the last place she was saw before her painful demise..."
Mr Smith raise his brow..."So it happens.., do you think someone from the company killed her because that will be so ridiculous...."
"We're only asking questions Mr Smith.."Officer Thomas said
"If you have questions, I'll refer you to the firm lawyer.., he'll answer any question you're willing to ask..."
"The firm lawyer's name is Mr Billy.."Mr Smith cut in immediately, his voice showing his edge of irritation..."I'm saying nothing no more and if you persist with your questions.., I'll sue for defamation, contempt, denigration, opprobrium, an invective revilement of this great....
"It's fine..."Officer Thomas cut in...
The officers look at each other before Officer Marcus spoke up.....
"If anything relating to her death comes to your table, do well to notify us..."
Mr Smith took a breather before replying..."I'll do my best.."
"Thank you for your time..."Officer Thomas said before they left the office..
Annoyed, Mr Smith picked up the remote and turned off the TV..., he pick up his phone, scroll through his contacts and dialled a number......
As the daylight dwindled from the sky, the winds became more rusty giving the cloud a new definition.., Matthew thoughts it was going to pour as he looked upward to the sky.., he stood at the gate like a statue, anyone who sees him could easily guess he's been drained with profound sadness.., his pain was raw that he could hardly breathe..., he prays it pours, let the rain wash away the tears.., the anger was still there, vexing him to the point he could no longer take and all he could do now is pour it to the thing that sowed it, nurture it until it became too big to put down..
"Na who you be..?"A voice chime in from behind him
Swallowing heavily, he turn around, towards the direction of the voice.., the clouds have been robbed of their lights but even in the thick darkness he could still see the face of the person standing before him, he quickly realise that isn't the person he is looking for....
"I want to see Thunder.."Matthew said, his voice bold, before now, he would be shivering, no one dare to even come near the compound let alone speaking up to one of the gang members in his community...
"What for...?"The baritone voice asked back
"What I want to say is for only his ears.. "
"You dey craze.."The baritone voice retorted in pidgin..
Those words were enough to chase fear in Matthew, chase him away even but for a thing, he stood, totally composed and unmoved..., right there he realise whatever anger he was feeling was beyond fear..beyond reasoning.....
"Let him.."Another voice chime in before the gate creak and bulb light from the compound shone in their faces...."Where you the one knocking..?"
Matthew took a breather before he nod his head...
"Come in.."The person said paving the way for Matthew..
Without a second thought, Matthew walked in, dogs chained to the fence barked at him but he didn't move, neither was there any trace of fear found in his nerve...
"I want to see Thunder.."Matthew repeated..
The second man who had joined them nodded and motioned him forward.., Matthew followed him into the threshold until he opened the door and they both walk in....
For a slight second, Matthew found himself looking at the art paintings and beautification of the house but was quickly interrupted by a person's voice...
"Aren't you the guy who lost his siblings and father..?"Thunder ask climbing down from the stairs...
Matthew felt a pinch of anger at the sudden reminder...."Yes.."
"I'm sorry for your loss..."Thunder said
Matthew sniffle but said nothing...
"I heard you're looking for me.."Thunder said walking towards a chair, he sat and pointed a chair motioning Matthew to sit down too...
"Please i need your help.."Matthew said declining Thunder's offer for a chair...
Thunder raise his brows..."My help...!, I don't know how I can help you.."
"I need a gun.."Matthew said suddenly..
Thunder's mouth dropped..."A gun.."He reiterates before he chuckle..."What for if I may ask.."
Matthew lips curl, a muscle in his face twiched into a frown before a line set across his jaw..., great bitterness sweep through him with great force...., he couldn't handle it so he said the words out...."I want to kill someone.."
The clock has turned and the hunter has become the hunted, time is running out, the hunted knows the game has changed and he's going to die if he doesn't do something smart and fast, with everyone against him, he had to make the deadliest decision that will throw everyone off the cliff..., but who will fall first..., the hunters or the hunted...?

Whenever Silver1996 uses the phrase "Not your usual fairytale story" just know even your faves survival isn't assured.
There will be bloodshed.
