Chapter 8 (Semi-finale)
The first three Police led the front with their guns while aunt Kiki and I followed in the middle then the two other police were behind us.
“I think the house got no cameras.” the second police at the front whispered.
I sighed. I really didn’t want the police getting involved in this. I had wanted to do this the way I have planned but aunt Kiki insisted on involving the police.
The three police ran to the wall of the house while the two others ran to the other side.
I glanced at aunt Kiki and she nodded and gave me an assured and hopeful smile, then joined the other two.
I inhaled and walked to the door of the Holloways, then rang the doorbell.
I waited with beating heart.
In few seconds, the door was opened by a girl I guess would be my age mate.
Elizabeth I guess.
I breathed in, appearing bold.
She has long black hair that fell to her shoulder and wore a blue trouser and purple top.
“Goodmorning.” I said.
“Who are you?” she threw the question.
I smiled, “Im a new neighbour, my name is Isabel, im just trying to make friends, can I come in if you don’t mind?”
She stared at me, I guess she was trying to look into my eyes but I smiled and looked down.
“Right, come in.” she said and let the door open for me.
I pushed in, and just immediately the police men pushed in too with aunt Kiki.
“Your hands up!!” a police man commanded.
She gasped and with evil monsterious eyes at me, “Juliet!!!!” she screamed.
Just immediately, Juliet landed like a wind, dressed in a black robe.
The police backed away in fright but I didn’t. Im determined to get Henry and also get my cousin.
“How dare you come in here.” Juliet hurled with her evil blue eyes on me and then
to the rest.
“I need my friends.” I said.
“Ha ha ha ha.” she laughed out and drew nearer to me and I was so bold enough not to move back.
“I want my daughter. Let me have my daughter back you witch!” aunt Kiki yelled beside me.
“Silence!” Juliet hurled. “I don’t have your daughter and I do not have your friends.” she said.
“You do! You have Regina and you have Henry!” I yelled.
She moved back with an evil smile, “Oh silence.” she said.
“I want my daughter Juliet!” aunt Kiki said.
She smiled and looked at the police men, said a few enchant and just then a glass cage appeared and formed around them and once they cage formed, they all iced. I got frightened and aunt Kiki held my hand.
Juliet laughed…. her sister followed.
“What do you think you can do to me?” she said.
I breathed out, “I do not wish to do anything to you, All I want is to have my friends back.” I said.
“You are not gonna have them but join them as well.” she said.
aunt Kiki tightened her grip on mine.
I know she’s scared but it’s okay .
My eyes quickly scanned the large sitting-room and I found a tiny door, then another large door and the curved staircase.
“Tell me Elizabeth, what do we do to this two?” she asked her sister.
“Cage them like the police forever…Make them melt like an ice do.” Elizabeth
Juliet laughed, “No. I would take them to their beloved friends.” she said.
“Okay sister, whatever you say.” Elizabeth said.
Juliet smiled at me.
“Do you wish to see your friends?” she said.
“I don’t only wish for it, I’ll have them back!” I said.
She smiled, then turned to aunt Kiki. More interesting stories from

I thought she was about saying something but she stretched out your hands, moved her fingers and my aunt screamed and fell on her knees. I dashed to the small door and pushed in with force..
I felt a force following me.
I ran so hard through the dark corridor..
It was pitch dark, I can’t see anything, but I kept running, trying to find another corner.. but there was none, just then I hit my head on a hard surface, a wall. I screamed in pain and slumped down.
“Oh well well well.. great. I caught ya.” I heard Juliet’s faint voice, then her laugh

I opened my eyes to see myself held to the wall with my hands side by side in
handcuffs like im being crucified.
I winced in pain..
Looking up, I saw the long glass cage in my front.
I gasped when I saw Henry in there.
His face was down… His body tied.
There was a small pot of little burning fire but much smoke just before the cage…
but very close to the cage.
“Henry.” I called but my voice wasn’t so loud. I couldn’t even hear it.
“Henry!” I called louder.. now I think I heard it but he didn’t.
“Henry!!” I shouted with all my strength and gasped for breath… waiting for him to look up but he didn’t.
I blinked as tears rolled down my eyes.
How im I gonna get away from this handcuff.
I need to save you Henry. I need to save you. Please look up and tell me what to do. Henryyy
But he wasn’t responding.
He seem so weak.. too weak.
What do I do?
I looked around and there is nothing I could get hold off.
They are all so far from me.
No window, just a long door very far away.
Is there hope?
I could only watch him… with tears.
The door flung open and Juliet walked in, in her black long robe.
The door automatically closed back.
“Ohh pleasant pleasant. You are awake.This is so great. So you can actually see him, Isabel. Tellme, are you a sorceress?” she said coming closer to me.
I ignored her, my mind only focused on how to get out of this handcuff.
“Ohhh tell me Isabel.” she said.
I didn’t answer.
“Ohh you don’t wanna answer me, great great.” she said then laughed.
She turned to Henry.
“He is having a good time right?”
She moved back and fumed, “Answer me!!” she hurled and a great painful force raced through me and I screamed.
“Answer me, who are you!” she hurled.
The painful force still held me and I was screaming.
wild winds blew through her black hair and she stretched out her hand and a ball of fire formed on her palms.
“Fee ere gue ne eta” she said and then threw the ball of fire close to my feet, it spread in semi-circle around my feet.
The heat wasn’t so strong at first but then at each passing minute, the flame rised more and the heat and burn escalated.
I groaned in pains.
“Who are you Isabel or you are gonna get burnt in this rising flame!” she said.
I winced, feeling so thirsty. My throat completely dry and sour.
“Answer me!” she hurled.
“Isabel Dalton..” I said.
She moved backwards, “Who is your mother!” she yelled.
“I don’t know. I grew up without her.” I said.
“Lies!” she thundered and raised her hands to the air and the flames rised more….
I cried out..
The heat of the fire was burning me.
“Who is your mother!!” she roared.
“I. Have. No. Idea.” I said.
“Lies!! you fool!” she hurled and raised up her hands more higher and the flames of the fire increased more.
I screamed in burning pains as hot tears poured down my eyes.. my heart pounding but my breath ceasing.
She held it up for a very long time then tightening her fist, the flames began going down..
And when she brought down her hands, the fire went off.
I breathed out.
She glanced at Henry who’s head still was down.
Then she turned back to me just immediately.
“You are the daughter… of Ellie.” she said.

“Ellie..Ellie, you are the daughter of Ellie!!.” she yelled.
“I don’t know my mother. I don’t even know her name.” I said.
“She betrayed us! She betrayed my mother! She took what rightfully belonged to
my mother! the crystal!” she yelled.
Her blue eyes turning black..
It’s too scary, I shut my eyes.
“She gave it to you… let me have it!” she said.
“I don’t know what you are talking about.” I said, confused.
“Finally it’s you! I found you. I foud the crystal.” she said and began coming nearer
with a wicked smile.
aunt Kiki’s POV
Im pinned down on the floor.
I can’t move.
I wonder if Isa is alright. God I hope so.
Lord, I need you to come to our rescue.
I need you end this all right now. Save us.
Help me get my daughter, my niece and Henry.
“Just shut up!” Elizabeth’s voice barked as she came down from the staircase.
“How could you and your sister take my daughter! How could you.” I cried. “She deserves it! She won the painting competition when it was supposed to be
me! I begged her to let me win. She was perfect and I wanted to make my mom and my sister proud of me too, but she refused. She won the painting game. She betrayed me!” she barked.
“It was a competition. How could she withdraw for you to win. If you had put in more effort, you would have won Elizabeth.” I wept.
“I don’t care!! im never gonna let her go! and you are going to join her and the rest of them as well!” she hurled before walking away.
Just then, a loud scream echoed and I gasped.
“Isabel!!!!” I screamed.
A force pulled me down.
I gasped, realizing i’ve been released.
I got up and heard cracking sounds behind.
I turned to see the glass cage breaking, the ice which pinned the police men all melted and the police men rushed out, gasping and looking about in confusion.
“What happened?” one asked.
“Let’s find my niece!” I said and ran towards the staircase,..
The scream came from the upstairs.
The police ran behind me.
