You all are already thinking I'm a horrible novice writer but anyway I'm rewriting this book on Wattpad. I changed the name to Legacies Circle. There are new character, challenges and other spices. So maybe, you might still want to check it out, that's all.
Here's a sneak peek!

I absolutely, 100% do not know where this story is heading.
It's pretty confusing to me so I wanna delete the topic and start over buh I don't know how to delete a topic.
I'm gonna go back and modify the entire story.
I seriously wasn't thinking when writing and I'm very, very sorry because I've ended up wasting a lot of you time.
And I know most of you are gonna abandon the story now so I apologize again.
I'm very, very, very, sorry
But if you choose to follow the story after all I'll make sure to drop a message when I'm done.
Which be around this week or latest next week.

Rolling my eyes at his confidence, I concentrate on my conversation with Sam.
Well... Until I feel hands snaking around my waist.
I narrow my eyes, preparing my mind for the outburst I'm about to have. I turn sharply, tearing away from the assailant's grip and glaring at him.
"Hey, babe", Wayne says, slipping into the seat beside me.
"Missed me much? "
"Cocky much or just stupid much?", I ask in a sickly sweet voice.
He chooses to ignore my comment as Sam snickers silently.
I turn towards my former table facing Dayna's glares and the confused looks of the others.
I shrug nonchalantly at them and blow a kiss to Dayna.
Omg! Guys! You can pratically see the smoke springing from her ears.
I smile and face the irritating face of Wayne.
"I don't know", he replies cooly.
I shoot him a dirty look but he just shrugs and steals my lunch.
"I'm sorry but if you don't have anything to say you can now take your leave".
He feigns hurt, his hand over his chest. I catch Sam watching us with amusement in her eyes.
"You know it's going to take more than that to get rid of me", he whispers in my ear. I shudder at the close proximity and he throws his head back and laughs.
His an idiot.
He doesn't deserve you.
Those are the words I try to assure myself with.
I hear the clatter of a tray and I look up to meet the seething eyes of Ethan. He takes his seat before asking.
And might I add through gritted teeth.
"What's he doing here?".
"I lost my way and ended up here", Wayne replies, sipping my juice.
Oh! Don't worry I'm not drinking that or eating the food anymore. It's now contains Wayne bacteria.
"You?", Wayne asks innocently.
Ethan narrows his eyes at Wayne and shoves his food aside before jumping out his seat and turning towards the exit.
"Uh. Pretty boy offended. Thought you could do better", Wayne sassed.
"Motherfucker", Ethan grumbled before showing Wayne the middle finger.
"Nice comeback! I'm shaking in my own skin. Are you going easy on me cause I'm with the girl you can never have?, Wayne mused.
"Back off", Ethan hissed, his hands forming fists.
"I don't think she likes sissys", Wayne added.
Hold up! Like he any better, your stupid Wayne. I'll pick Ethan 100 times over you! Hah!
I will right? Right?
Next thing I know Ethan is before Wayne his fist raised ready to punch. I step in before things get messy by Ethan's hand.
"I told she liked me more", Wayne laughs.
But who said things can't get messy by my hands.
I swing my fist with extreme force at Wayne's perfect nose and I kinda regret it now.
About hitting him... Nah
But the pain... An absolute yes.
What is this dude made from?
"Shit, shit, shit, shit", I cry out as my hand grows red blotches.
I look up to see the damage I did while Ethan and Sam fusses about my bleeding hand.
Are you serious? No blood?
That was supposed to make him get surgery and maybe get a new face but his perfectly fine.
Except for the tiny, very tiny dent at the bridge of his nose.
And that look in his eyes.
That cold look.
His walking towards me now.
I watch as Diamond tries to stop him but he pushes onwards, his grey eyes slowly growing darker until replaced by complete black.
This time Diamond looks around cautiously before tapping the back of his neck and saying something into his ear.
He stops abruptly and follows her out the cafeteria door almost mechanically.
How can a person's eyes be so soulless and black?
How does he have a dent instead of a busted nose?
What did Diamond do? What did she say to him that he suddenly obeyed her?
Talk about weird much.

If anybody at all has been wondering I hadn't posted a new update. It's pretty clear... I feel like I'm wasting my time cause no one has commented or followed in the last months.
So... If I get a new follow or comment I promise to post a new update within the week.
|Literature / Re: Another Shade Of Red by FayBrown(f): 7:12pm On Dec 05, 2018|
I stroll casually to my locker...
Rephrasing... I try to stroll casually to my locker but with all the wold whistles I'm getting. It's a bit hard.
Anytime a hand touches me I tense up before shrugging them off. I watch as Sam blows kisses to anyone who walks up to her, leaving them in a trance.
I roll my eyes at her and she smirks in response.
I go to my locker to get my notes while Sam leans on the walls next to my locker. I put in the code and I open it to meet a bouquet of roses.
I smile at it, my cheeks turning red as I reach for it and the heart shape basket of chocolates. I read the card.
I really want to to talk you. Meet me in the botanical garden at lunch.
I swoon at the letter, smelling the bouquet of roses and touching it's delicte petals.
"Secret admirer, huh?", Sam asks.
I smile and take five bars of different chocolates dropping them in my bag before trying to put the basket away without spilling the contents.
Sam digs into the basket, grabbing a handful of chocolates amd dropping it in her backpack.
A chocolate bar falls and she catches mid air, I let out a breath I didn't know I was holding.
I get the basket in before slamming my locker door shut, Sam tosses me half the chocolate
I drop the mushy goodness into my mouth, smacking my lips in the process.
"Hey, I got you this", Sam holds up a gold layered necklace of three for me.
One has a mini heart pendant, another a mini R pendant and another a mini camera pendant.
I grab it from hand, smiling at the present. Holding to my chest, I say, "Thank you".
She nods her head with a grin.
"I'm happy you like it. I freaked out when my dad told me the girl who's supposed to show me around school and be my friend. Birthday is tomorrow, I just dropped at the mall and when I saw these, I fell in love with it", she looks at the necklace, jealously.
"Hey! Stop looking at it like that!", I half yell.
She rolls her eyes at me.
A warm hand snakes around my waist, hugging me from behind. I rooster my head to the side, looking into Ethan's green-blue eyes.
Ever since the incident, he's being with me and he is one awesome human being.
I spin out of his hand, my hands crossed on my chest, leaning against my locker and glaring at him.
"I didn't forget", he reassures me and I smile.
"Happy birthday", he produces a thin pink envelope from behind it.
I collect it, opening the gift with caution.
I find a coupon for two at a restaurant, a gift card from my favourite mall, another coupon from MacDonald, another coupon from a chinese restaurant, a gift card from a pizza place and another gift card from Urban Decay.
"Oh my God!", Sam screams on my behalf.
My face is heating up.
I rush into his arm, hugging hin tightly.
"Do you like it?", he asks nervously whem I let him go.
I shake my head and his face drops.
"I love it", I laugh, hugging him again.
He lets out a breath.
"You know me too well", I chuckle.
"Oh! You mean your love for food", he smirks.
I punch his hand playfully and he feigns pain.
"See you later, b", he kisses me on the cheek and I turn red.
God! Do black people blush?!
He walks away with his back to me.
"He's hot", Sam whispers and I remember she's standing next to me.
"Are you two dating?".
My eyes widen at her her comment.
I shake my head aggressively and she laughs.
I open my locker, dropping the envelope into it, the bell goes and we head for class.
My day drags on with me dragging the bouquet of roses everywhere and Sam in my every class, making dirty jokes about I and Ethan and Diamond looking at Sam with jealousy in her eyes.
I pratically dance when the bell goes for lunch.
"Is that a dab?", Sam asks.
I smile sheepishly, looking around at the empty classroom.
"Meet you later. Save a seat at the cafeteria for me", I wave Sam off, running in the direction of the botanical garden.
Whem I enter the lights are switched off, the lights suddenly turn on with a certain grey eyes before me.
Yup, you guessed right. Wayne.
"What do you want?", I ask, disgust in my voice.
"I'm suppose to meet someone here".
"What do you have with Ethan?", he growls, his eyes red.
"I dunno. Gee, what can a boy and girl want together?", I ask. Sarcasm dripping from my voice.
He shoves me to a wall, my head making contact with it. I groan in pain before his both hand traps me.
"I want my girlfriend back" he sighs, staring deep in my eyes.
Unraveling all my feelings for him that refuse to go away.
But then I remember his with Dayna now, that stupid slimy bitch!
"Oh! I think you left her in bitch town", I drawl, my eyes searching for emotion in his.
"No, not Dayna", he hisses.
Asshole! What new game is he playing.
Well, two can play.
"Do you want me to drop you off there? I don't really kmow the way there but I know Google can help".
"Ruby!!!", he growls.
"I'm on it, just give me a minute", I pretend to reach for my bag which is on the floor.
"Ruby!", he growls again.
I give up trying to reach my bag.
"Although, I don't think Google knows the way there too".
I smirk at my remark.
"I want you back", he says softly.
Motherfucker! Thinks I'll fall for his games.
"And I want to punch you then show you yhe middle finger but we don't always get what we want", I hiss, "Now do we?".
I watch as his jaws clench in anger.
Then realization hits me.
"Did you send me those flowers and the chocolates?".
He nods, grinning from ear to ear before it turns to a full smile.
"Did you like 'em?", he inquires.
My eyes dart to the flowers scattered in the room, I glare at them like they are the cause of my problems.
His eyes follow mine and land on them.
"I guess you did", he smirks.
I push him off me and he budges but on his own will.
I match to were my bag fell, picking it up, I match to were the flowers are. Looking between Wayne and the flowers. I stomp on them, I tear them with my feet.
"I hate them", I yell, continuing to trample on them.
When I'm satisfied with their state, I look up at Wayne, dusting my dress at the same time.
He looks at me and I see hurt flash in his eyes, he stomps away angrily.
I quietly exit the door, realization hitting me again.
Wayne wants me back.
I walk to the cafeteria, weaving my way around bodies until I find Sam sitting with a group. She waves me over, I take my seat and glance st my former table.
I catch Wayne with his hand on Dayna's shoulder.
He wants me back and he's with her.
Is he freaking bipolar?
He looks at me then he smirks.
He stands up, heading towards my table.

"So your Mark's sister?
"I'm also Seun's sister", Amands grins, "With the amount of time I've spent with him after the incident. Yeah,you can call me his sister".
My ears perk up in expectation.
I turn to get a better look at Amanda in the car, propping my hand at the back of seat.
We're heading towards my house to get the folder.
"What incident?", I and Jenny ask at the same time
"Wow! You two can pass as a twin", she coughs out as the boys shoot her death glares.
"What! I thought they knew", she scoffs at the boys.
"We are a twin, donzo", Jenny fires at her.
"Dang it! Uh, I didn't know", Amanda blurts out.
"Seems like it", Jenny rolls her eyes.
I adjust akwardly at the left hand with Amanda between I and Jenny, I turn to get a better view of Amanda's face. She's pretty calm. That's new.
"Uh, what incident?", I bring up the topic again.
"It's nothing", Seun snaps from the driver's seat.
I and Jenny share a look before she replies, "Dude, chill! She's not asking you what colour of boxer you wore this morning", she pouts.
I watch as Seun squirms uncomfortably in his seat, pulling his seatbelt a time too many.
"What are they hiding?", I send to Jenny.
I see her put on a thoughful look.
"I bet it has to do with why they're back in the country", she sends.
"And why they're still in highschool, they should be in the university".
Jenny nods before looking up at Amanda.
"I bet she knows", Jenny slurs.
"Of course, she knows. She just literally just said she knew", I say, "You can be such an idiot".
And that is how my curls gets pulled by my beloved sister.
Grab the sarcasm?
I pull her hand away, glaring at her and putting ny tongue out. She drops the midle finger in my face before struggling to pull it away as Amanda makes it hard for her.
"Would you too tone it down there?", Mark inquires.
"Fvck you", Jenny hisses.
"Language, young lady", he warns.
"Yes, mom", Jenny retorts.
Mark rolls his eyes dramatically before unbuckling his seatbelt and kneeling on his seat to get a better view of our faces.
"What?", Jenny snaps.
"Your annoying", he states.
"And I want to punch you", she replies.
He turns to look at me.
"Are you okay?".
"Does she looks....", Amanda puta her inger to her head as if thinking, "Un-ok?".
"That's not a word", I shake my head, suppressing a giggle.
"As long as it keeps you dorks from making love in front of me", she physically shudders.
"What?", she snaps.
"I find that insulting".
"And we're the same age so I find it interesting", she grins at Jenny who returns the grin, "Boring dork", she points at me.
I touch my heart, feigning pain while she and Jenny rolls their eyes.
"Don't mind them", Mark butts in.
Jenny and Amanda make gagging noises and I chuckle.
"Can you please seat your ass down?", Seun tells Mark.
Mark ignores him intead resting his head on the chair and staring at me.
Leaving the car in silence.
"So what's the incident?", Jenny perks up.
"Way to ruin the mood, Jenny", Mark scoffs, taking his seat and buckling his seatbelt.
Jenny makes an attempt to bow but ends up hitting her head on Mark's seat. Earning a chuckle from Amanda, a smirk from Seun, death glares from I and Mark. And her braids come on done from it's tight down bun.
"I'm serious", she states after pushing her hair behind her face.
"She's right. We want to know and you guys already know everything about us", I add.
Silence falls in place of the once cheerful air, thick enough to cut through it with a knife.
I fiddle my fingers in anticipation and an unconscious nervous act. I spot Jenny chewing her bottom lip also an unconscious act.
Amanda sighs, I perk my head in her direction expecting answers only for silence to follow again.
Jenny slaps her hand lightly.
"What! I had to do that", she snaps.
Jenny furrows her brows in confusion, returning to chew on her bottom lip.
After more minutes Jenny hisses.
"Answers now! Or I'll freaking jump out out of the car", her hand moves to the door and my heart skips a beat.
"Ok", Mark shrugs, "Save us a bunch of words".
I glare at him as he looks in my direction and Seun shoots him another glare. He shrugs and looks away.
Seun parks at the roadside and the csr grows quiet again.
"My option is still up", Jenny hisses.
"And my affirmation is still on", Mark replies.
"Asshole", Jenny grunts.
"The door is beside you, all you have to do is pull that grey thingie and your out", Amanda throws her hand up in exasperation, trying to hide a grin.
"Oh! Thanks bitch! I now know all of you care about me", Jenny hisses.
"Jenny... Are you really gonna... ", I send.
"Of course not", she cuts in.
I sigh in relief.
"Drive, Seun. I'll tell them", Amanda says.
"No, that's not gonna happen", Mark interrupts.
"What crawled up in your ass today?", Jenny makes a disgusted face.
"What crawled up in your hair?", he retorts with a smirk.
Jenny narrows her eyes at him.
"Seun drive! Or we'll be searching for where to bury a body", Jenny warns.
Kniwing Jenny that could happen. I shudder st the thought.
Seun seems like he's weighing his options.
"Seun! Drive! Or you'll be digging two graves", Amanda frowns.
Trying to stop Jenny from snaking her around Mark's seat and choking him to death.
Seun turns the key and continues driving.
"So back when we used to stay in Nigeria, the boys here", Amamda points at the boys, "Were kidnapped".
"That was like eight year ago. The boys were kidnapped and we couldn't find them, the kidnappers didn't ask for anything. No money, no nothing, I'd given up on seeing Mark again cause back then I didn't know Seun", she looks at the both boys.
"Then oneday, a year after their kidnap, on a december I guess, they just turn up on our doorstep. All alone, Mark covered in blood and bruises. Seun in a minimal puddle of blood and a few scrapes and they faint. At the same time. Rushing them to the hospital, they had forgotten everything about the incident except for the description of a building", she shakes her head exhaustion.
"After a few weeks, I hear my dad talking with my mom about how the building was almost crumbling down with charred walls but they knew it wasn't a fire except the charred walls nothing else was burnt. Then they found about twenty men, half of them killed in a grosteque way. The other half killed with various weapons, it could be seen by the marks on them. Swords, arrow, dagger, you name it", she closes her eyes, taking a calming breath.
"We were moved out of the country to a private school for protection and the boys had become tighter, like brothers".
She sighs, happy to end the gloomy story.
I and Jenny share a sorry look and I place a comforting hand on Mark who seems to be re-living that day. He turns and smiles at me without the girls making gagging noise.
The car pulls up before our compound in no time.
We all come down front the comfort of the air con to the hot sun, I shieled my eyes before pushing open the old rickety gate.
Seun drives in and I lock the gate.
"Why! You two finally choose to come and you brought your friends", an old voice perks from the door.
We all whip our head in it's direction and see an old woman in tatterred clothes before the door.
"Mad woman", Jenny waves off.
"Demon", Amanda hisses, suddenly.
Before I could say Jack Robinson, she has the woman backed up to the wall with a knife to her throat.
|Literature / Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 5:21pm On Dec 03, 2018|
I listen as everyone ramble on more lies to tell me.
No answer. Still rambling.
I hiss and roll my eyes at them which they didn't notice.
I tuck my phone into my pyjamas pocket before sliding quietly unto one one of the armchairs.
I pick up the remote from the center table and power on the TV. It doesn't take time before I start scrolling through channels.
My mind orders me to stop once I get to a news channel.
I roll my eyes at my stupidity. This time.
I don't watch news.
I'm about to change the channel when the reporter begins to give the news.
The headlines read.
TEENAGE GIRL GOES BALLISTIC OVER MOON, TEMPORARYILY TURNING PEOPLE DEAF.
They show a blurry image of the girl with her braids wildly concealing her face in a kneeling position, her head propped towards the moon as if shouting and chatting with it at the same time.
I squint my eyes at the screen, tilting my head to get a better look at the face.
I shut my eyes so as to concentrate.
I feel the engines turning in my head.
I gasp as one of my dreams play in my head.
SHE SKIPS HAPPILY TOWARDS A GATE, HER OLDIES JEANS SECURED TIGHTLY WITH A BELT ON HER WAIST.
SUDDENLY SHE TURNS, LOOKING DIRECTLY AT ME.
HER EYES ARE DAMP WITH THE THICKEST OF REDS, SHE LETS OUT AN UNEARTLY SCREAM AS IF HER SOUL IS BEING TAKEN AWAY FROM HER.
I TAKE IN AGONIZING BREATHES BEFORE TURNING TO LOOK BACK AT THE GIRL, SHE HAD STOP SCREAMING.
SHE THROWS ME A SIDE GLANCE BEFORE UNLOCKING THE LATCH AND PULLING OPEN THE GATES.
Wait! Jenny! That is Jenny!
THE SCENE CHANGES AND I'M BEFORE THE HOUSE AT THE EXTREME OF THE COMPOUND, JENNY IS STANDING WITH TWO OTHER LADIES, SMILING AT ME.
I LOOK AT THE OTHER FACES...
THAT LADY THAT DISAPPEARED...
This is the first time I'm remembering any dream that has Jenny and Emma in it.
But that lady... No... She's always there.
Always in my dreams... Causing chaos...
I open my eyes and I'm back to the present, the others at looking at me then the TV.
"J-jenny, that's you", I query, pointing at the TV "God! Someone talk to me".
I cut through Jenny's answer, "The truth. I want the truth".
I crossed my hands over my chest, putting on my most serious face.
I watch as they argue with themselves.
They turn to me the same time, all their faces holding frustration.
I listen intently as they fill me in on every detail they had.
They all stare at me, half expecting me to freak out.
I stare back at them before shrugging and sitting back in my chair.
"So what your telling me is. Your mother is a goddess, actually the goddess of love and she hates you. And now she's tired of the old cycle because she wants a permanent solution to bring back her husband but still she wants to kill you but she can't...".
"At least, not right now", Jenny cuts in.
"Because you can help her figure out vital information for her to bring back her husband or will I say your dad. Whom she's obsessed with bringing back to this world and you have most of the gifts of the other gods in you. And now she has your Othu-whatever and she's threatening you", I clap for a maid and she comes running in.
She leaves and comes back with a glass of water. I motion for her to leave before I take a large gulp from the water.
"From my memories I believe there was a war in heaven with some gods turning to Nkutlu's side and she was later expelled to the earth. With her husband secured tighter in his prison", Emma explains.
"So what can you two do?", I ask, pointing at Emma and Jenny.
They didn't seem happy about having to show their powers.
Suddenly my glass which is still in my hand shakes. It continues for a while before stopping abruptly. The water dances out of the glass in swirls, it changes movements.
It forms a staircase and the water dances into a circle. It seperates into beautiful droplets and just hangs in the air.
Not one single droplet escaping and dripping to the ground. It swiftly joins back together and tumbles, doing flips before dropping into my glass.
I couldn't stop my self from clapping, I look up to see Emma blushing.
I catch Jenny closing her eyes and before I understand the temperature drops. The heat is tremendous.
Sweat pours down my skin and I look at Jenny.
Her eyes are still shut, she moves her hand around and the heat begins to fade. The air conditioner picking up.
I watch as Jenny cups her hands together and a small flame appears.
It's original orange colour, burning with intensity.
Sparks of blue, green and yellow flying around it.
It is the most unusual and beautiful sight.
She makes her hand into fist and the fire extinguishes before she opens her eyes.
"Close your mouth, Amanda", Mark instructs.
I didn't even know, my mouth was open and anyway it had the right to be open. I am awestruck by what this girls can do.
"Damn! I love you two already! So what's the plan to dave your O-o-thu-aba?".
They all look at me with bewilderment.
"What? I want to kick sime ass", I yelp.
"I love this girl", Jenny croons in delight, smiling at me.
"Why because she swears like you?", Emma admonishes with a hint of jealousy.
"Whatever", she sticks her tongue out to Emma, "We need to find that folder, find our Othuaba and stop our mother", Jenny gushes to us.
"So who's in? And Amanda you have to tell us about your dreams".
|Literature / Re: Another Shade Of Red by FayBrown(f): 12:59pm On Nov 30, 2018|
"Thanks so much", I waved cheerfully at the driver after getting my driver's lisence.
"No problem. You did great", the lady cheers.
I pratically jumped, up and down, up and down past the gate, into the car waiting to take me home and finally home.
"Daddy, I got it", I squeal, running into my dad's office at home.
"Nu-uh. He's in a meeting", Victoria snaps.
Shaking her pen in my face. "Miss", she adds, distate in her voice.
When my dad broke the news of my return to the house, he warned everyone, specifically some people (*cough*Victoria*cough*) to treat me with respect. She has to call me Miss and it's so fun after how rude she acted the first time I was here.
"Yh, whatever", I plop myself into one of the soft couch, looking through Instagram.
"I wonder how she got him", she grumbles under her breath.
I glance at from my circular glasses which I wear for extra style, I put my phone into my bag and walk up to her.
I drop my hand on her desk and smirk.
"You can call him or text him or whatever. We're done", I shrug.
Looking back at the reception, gulping down the white comfy couches and the large windows, using it as an excuse to hide my eyes, my tearing eyes from her.
I take in a deep breath.
In and out.
In and out.
Did I tell you how beautiful the reception is?
Well it has pale green and white walls, five royal couches on each wall, two modern large windows and there's Victoria's brown arched desk made with shiny and well polished mahogany at the left side.
Victoria's ramble sweeps me back to reality.
"Wait? You mean you two are no longer together? H-how h-how did it happen? He looked like he really liked you? And from the way you look at him, you like him too", she pauses to catch her breath, "Tell me the whole story", she squeals.
She leans forward, her eyes strictly on Ruby her breath a controlled huff.
Ruby shrugs, walking back to the couch opposite Victoria's desk, making Victoria lose all hope of hearing the story. Her shoulder slumps in annoyance, rolling her eyes at Ruby who had her back to her.
Ruby sits and takes out her phone again.
"He lost his memory", she continues with her phone.
Victoria's eyes widen like saucers, her mouth hung open revealing her blue gum in her mouth.
"Close your mouth or you'll be swallowing flies", Ruby states, not looking up.
Victoria nods, closing her mouth in the process. Her heart jumping about in victory, she blinks as the telephone rings.
"Vicky, the phone is ringing", Ruby sings.
"My name is not Vicky", she snaps out of her trance.
She picks the phone, placing it on her ear and taps her fingers on the desk noisily.
"Okay. Uh-uh. Sure".
Is all I can make out from the conversation.
The phone beeps signaling the end of the call and she dials another number, it rings in her ear before the other person picks.
"The boss needs his coffee now", she places the phone on the receiver. "You can go in now", she tells me.
I pick up my bag, waving at her and push open the doors to my dad's office.
Great! His in a meeting!
I take the chair furthest away from his desk and the other man in the black suit as I sit their eyes snap in my direction. I scramble to my feet, walking with my head hung low to his desk.
"Um, I didn't know you were in a meeting. Eh, sorry, dad".
"No problem, sweetie. I told Vicky to let you in", my dad smiles.
You see, that's what I called her. Vicky!
"So this is the famous Ms Ruby Delacio", the man in the suit says, standing to his full height.
Which I must say is very taller than me.
His hair a curly jet black mess on his head, he has dull blue eyes and a trimmed full beard with dust of grey, here and there. His face angled and squared, his pretty muscular. I guess.
He stretches his hand out to me and I take it.
"Nice to meet you, Mr... ".
"Samuel", he finishes, locking eyes with me.
Eww, geez! Your so old. Get some your own age.
He chuckles, letting go of my hand as if he heard everything I thought.
"I got my license", I turn to my dad.
"Great", he smiles, "That's why Samuel is here".
"I don't understand".
"Your father here wants to buy you a Rolls Royce but I think a Bentley would be best", he takes his seat, while I lean on the other.
Car. Bentley. Rolls Royce. Dad... Car. Me.
"Wait, you want to buy me a car?" my mind finally registering the news.
My father nods with extra ethusiasm.
"Your turning seventeen tomorrow and you don't want a party. But you have your drivers license so a car fot you".
I interrup him by hugging him or you can say choking the air out of him.
"Can't breathe", he forces out and I let go immediately.
"I want a Maserati", I rush.
"You heard the lady", my father tells the man.
"Great taste", he nods his head in approval, "A Maserati it is". "See you tomorrow then".
He takes his leave but stops when he gets to the door.
"And Ruby, my daughter will be joining the school your attending tomorrow. I'll be very grateful if you show her around".
"I'll bring her here along with the car. See you soon", he waves and walks out.
Yay! A car!
I take extra time dressing up tomorrow. It's Monday and it's birthday and I'm getting a car. A very good reason to look flawless for school.
I put on a short spaghetti hand silver romper with a low back and a black leather jacket, a black heeled sandal with silver details. I pull my hair into a bun backwards, gelling the front and letting many curly strands fall to my face.
I apply foundation and powder, a little highlighter for shine and red lipstick. I pack my circular black bag and pick up a folder with a project I've being working on for school.
I take a final glance at the mirror before stepping out of my room.
Wow! There's balloons of every colour on the walls. I take my time, walking to my dad's room but I find him in the big sitting room
I'm still getting used to how big the house is.
"Morning, Daddy", I greet, kissing him on the cheek.
He looks up at me from the newspaper.
"You look beautiful, darling", he comments.
He claps his hamd and a maid walks in with a gift on a silver tray.
"Take it", he urges me.
I do as he says, warily opening up the present. My heart drops when I see it. I look uo at my dad. Then the present.
"Oh my god. An iPhone. IPhone 8", I jump up, nearly falling to the ground.
"You deserve more and better", my dad answers.
I give a huge, big, bear hug. Hugging the life out of him.
I open the carton, powering it up and fiddling with it. Transferring everything from my old phone to the new one, I sit on the couch beside my dad. I look up at th wall clock.
A maid offers me a cup of tea and a few slices of bread, giving my dad his coffee. When we finish we fall into a comfortable silence.
"So will you drop me at school on your way to work?".
A car honks.
And my dad smirks.
Oh, no! My dad doesn't smirk
I walk in front of my dad, my eyes shut. A maid on each side, guiding me as I walk.
"Ok", I hear my dad say and the maids take off their hands.
"Can I open my eyes now?".
My eyes fly open and I'm standing before a silver Maserati. I don't know how or when the scream came out of my mouth but I'm screaming right now.
Don't expect a description, I'm very bad with describing cars.
Mr Samuel appears with a girl of my age trailing him, jingling the car key before me.
I look at my dad and he nods, I jump and grab the key. I press a button and the car beeps open, I go into the car amd breath in the car's fragance.
"I love it", I squeal, hugging my dad again.
"Now go. I don't want you to be late for school", my dad says.
I pratically jump into the car and I'm very close to starting it when a peraon clears his throat. I get out the car, staring at Mr Samuel.
"This is my daughter, Samantha", he introduces us.
She holds out her hand to me.
"I'm Ruby", I reply.
She's light skinned, very pretty, blue eyes like her dad. A small pretty face, long lashes and pink lips. She's wearing jean blue short shorts, a white tank top that says "I sleep. A lot", a large blue jean jacket and white vans. Her black backpack is slung over one shoulder, with her brunette pushed to a side of her face.
"Are you ready?", I smirk.
"I'm I safe?", she asks back.
"Then I'm ready".
We wave bye to our dads, enter the car, put on our seatbelts and I turn the ignition
"I can't believe your dad bought you a Maserati", she says, whilst I'm driving.
"I know right", I reply.
"So you wanna be friends?".
I pulled into the school compound and pack my car.
I could see everyone staring at my car.
"Are you ready?".
She nods and we step out.
All eyes on us, I saw Diamond and the boys. And Wayne with Dayna still sucking on his face.
I wonder if she ever stops.
They all looked awestruck.
I share a smile with Sam as we bounce into school.

|Literature / Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 5:55pm On Nov 28, 2018|
This is my answer to Fazemood's question.
I feel like everyone needs to know this.
First every update from chapter eight downwards happened in Seun's house.
Secondly I explained how the guys found out. Also in chapter eight. Where Emma tells Jenny that Mark had memories coming back to him when he held her hand when she was under the moon's influence.
Same thing also happened to Seun.
I'll go back and modify chaper eight so everyone will understand better.
And everything concerning the new character and Mark and Seun will be unraveling bit by bit.
I'm modifying chapter eight so please read it.
I know, again... Please do.

"COME NOW, MY DARLING".
HER CURLY HAIR FALLS PAST HER SHOULDER HIDES HER FACE AS SHE PULLS HER VICTIM WITH HER. HER THRALL. THE MAN STARES AHEAD TRANSFIXED, EYES TINTED WITH PINK, GREYING HAIR AND A MUSCULAR BODY STILL LOOKING YOUNG AT AGE FIFTY PLUS.
HIS SUITCASE FALLS TO THE GROUND AS HE GETS PULLED INTO THE EMPTY BEDROOM.
SHE TURNS TO LOOK AT HIM WITH HER CROOKED SMILE ETCHED ON HER LIPS AND LETS GO OF HIS HAND.
"LIE", SHE SNEERS, POINTING TO THE GROUND.
HE OBEYS IMMEDIATELY, LYING FLAT ON THE COKD GROUND, EYES TO THE CEILING.
WHILE SHE SPRINKLES A BLACK DUSTY SAND AROUND IN A CIRCLE, SHE STRAIGHTENS UP AND COLLECTS A DAGGER FROM THE ONLY FURNITURE LEFT IN THE ROOM, A TABLE. SHE COLLECTS A SMALL CALABASH AND SITS ON THE GROUND, LEGS FOLDED IN FRONT OF THE CIRCLE.
SHE BEGINS TO WHISPER INCANTATIONS UNDER HER BREATH, HER BODY BEGINS TO SHAKE. THE INCANTATIONS GETS LOUDER, HER BODY SHAKES HARDER.
"I COME WITH A GIFT.
ACCEPT IT, OH DEATH,
AND RELEASE TO ME THE SPIRIT OF MY BELOVED
OPEN THY GATES OF SORROWS
AND LET HIM COME TO ME
RECEIVE TWO SOULS FOR HIS OWN
TWO BLESSED SOULS
TWO SOULS OF GODS
BLESSED BY HIM ON THE THRONE
BLESSED BY ALL
RECEIVE IT NOW!!!
AS AN OFFERING. "
THE WALL BEHIND SHIFTS REVEALING THE BULKY MAN COVERED WITH SWEAT IN THE OTHER ROOM, THE BOTH CHILDREN SLUNG ON EACH SHOULDER AND A BOTTLE IN HIS LEFT HAND. HE ENTERS THE ROOM AND DROPS THE BODIES, NEXT TO HER, BARELY BREATHING, EYES SHUT.
HE STANDS BACK AND WATCHES.
SHE PICKS UP THE KNIFE AND CUTS HER RIGHT PALM, SHE POURS TEN DROPS OF ICHOR INTO THE CALABASH THEN SHE LICKS PALM AND THE WOUND CLOSES UP. SHE DIPS A FINGER INTO THE CALABASH AND DRAWS A PENTAGON ON LITTLE JENNY'S HEAD.
AS SOON AS THE BLOOD TOUCHES JENNY, HER EYES OPEN AND SHE SHAKES VIOLENTLY ON THE GROUND, SHE GRABS JENNY'S SHAKING HAND AND CUTS IT POURING ICHOR INTO THE CALABASH.FIVE DROPS AND SHE GOES BACK TO HER FORMER SELF.
SHE DOES THE SAME TO LITTLE EMMA AND THE SAME HAPPENS TO HER.
SHE CONTINUES HER INCATATIONS, NOW IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. SHE STOPS SUDDENLY AND GESTURES FOR THE OTHER MAN TO STEP FORWARD, HE DOES AS TOLD AND PUTS THE BOTTLE INTO HER HAND.
SHE UNCOVERS THE CAP AND A HOWL COMES FROM IT BEFORE A MIST OF RED AND WHITE SWIRL IN THE AIR.
SHE CACKLES WILDLY AT THE MIST AND POINTS AT THE MAN LYING STILL BEFORE HER.
WIND HOWLS AND THE PLACE VBRATES.
THE DIFFERNT COLOURED MIST DANCES AROUND EACH OTHER WILDLY, AIR SPIRALLY.
THE RUMBLING OF THE EARTH COULD BE HEARD FROM THE DISTANCE, HIGH AND SPONTANEOUS. IT DRAWS TO THEM LIKE A NAIL TO MAGNET.
WHISPERS OF WIND, DOORS FLY OPEN, WINDOWS GRAVITATE OUT OF POSITION.
THE WHITE AND RED MIST TWIST AROUND EACH OTHER BRINGING WITH IT A SHY LIGHT.
BRIGHTER, BRIGHTER AND BRIGHTER THE LIGHT GOT.
EVERYRING HALTS AND THE HUGE BURLY MAN FALLS TO HIS DEATH.
THE BOTH MIST TWIST AND EMERGE CAUSING A LIGHT AS INTENSE AS THE SUN. GRADUALLY IT GOT STRONGER.
IN ONE SWIFT MOVE IT FORMS A BALL AND JUMPS INTO THE MAN LYING WITHIN THE CIRCLE MOUTH'S, HE SWALLOWS QUICKLY IN HIS LYING STATE.
HIS EYES ROLL BACK INTO HIS HEAD AND THE PLACE QUIETENS.
THE WOMAN JUMPS INTO THE CIRCLE, MUTTERING DARKLY UNDER HER BREATH. SHE GOES BACK TO THE CHILDREN STILL STRUGGLING TO STAY ALIVE AND PIERCES THEIR HEARTS, ONE AFTER THE OTHER.
A TEAR SLPS DOWN BOTH THEIR EYES AS THEY LET OUT THEIR LAST BREATHES AND SLUMP INTO THE COLD HANDS OF DEATH.
THE MAN GASPS AND SHE RUSHES TO HIS SIDE AND SLIDES THE SAME DAGGER INTO HIS CHEST, HIS BODY GROWS COLD.
SHE SLIDES AWAY FROM ALL THE DEATH BODIES, TEARS ROLLING FROM HER EYES, HER BACK TO THE WALL AND HEAD BETWEEN HER LEGS.
THE CHILDREN'S EYES OPEN AND THEY LET OUT AN UNEARTLY SCREAM WHICH STARTLES HER BEFORE GOING BACK TO THE DEAD.
SHE WATCHES AS THE MAN'S BODY BEGINS TO SHAKE VIOLENTLY, SHE RUSHES TO HIS SIDE AS WHITE FOAM BLEEDS OUT OF HIS MOUTH, SHE CLOSES HER EYES AND PLACES IT ON HIS CHEST, INCANTATIONS FLYING FROM HER MOUTH.
THIS GOES ON FOR SOME MINUTES BEFIRE HE STOPS. SHE RAISES HER HEAD TO MEET DARK COCOA EYES STARING BACK AT HER.
"OH MY DARLING, NKUTLU", HE SITS UPRIGHT AND HUGS HER. "YOU DID IT. AGAIN".
SHE SMILES AND MELTS INTO HIS HUG.
"Uh... We're... Uh...", Jenny stutters, "Learning magic", she blurts.
"Yh, Amamda. We have to do it for uh... A project?", Seun adds.
The others nod in agreement.
"She was helping us, teaching us to use magic smoke to disappear", Emma adds.
"Hey, sissy. You haven't had breakfast, I'll tell the cook to make you something", Mark tries to squirm away but he stops when she replies.
"I woulda believed you all. Trust me, it was a really believable one", she looks at them and they sigh in relief.
"But... ", she drawls.
"But what?", Emma fidgets.
"I'll love to know why your magic teacher has being messing with my dreams".
"Huh?", Jenny utters.
"Yes", Amanda hisses, "I've being seeing her in my dreams as soon as I stepped into Nigeria".
|Literature / Re: Gold Blood: The Resurrection by FayBrown(f): 2:16am On Nov 27, 2018|
