They sedated me and took me away.
I groaned out of sleep, feeling so much pains on my joints – everywhere.
Urgh! My head ached a lot.
I struggled to sit up and discovered my hands were tied to the back.
My eyes adjusted to the dimness in the room and I got to see I was locked up in am empty room and made to sit on a dirty floor.
Oh! My God!
Why do I have a feeling…I already know who it is?
My mind suddenly drifted to see him and I flinched.
Oh my God!!! Where’s he??
I can remember – he was shot!!
Yes – the animals shot him! Where’s he!!
Just then, the door opened and I looked to see it was Oscar.
Oh my God!!
My guess was right.
The monster. I had a hunch he was behind it. I should’ve known an animal would always be an animal.
He walked in with some boys and a smirk ran across his lips.
“My dear sister is awake, huh?” He teased as he squatted in front of me and if not for the fact my hands were tied, I’d have punched him in the face.
“I can never be your sister” I said angrily and he laughed.
“You monster. Where’s Noah?? Where’s he?” I demanded.
“Oh! Please, I’ve got no business with him. He should be…wherever. I don’t know and don’t f**king care” he spoke with so much nerves and I felt my anger building up.
“If anything happens to him – I’ll kill you. I swear to God, I’ll kill you” I warned tearfully and he laughed.
“Seriously?? Can a dead man kill a living soul?” He asked and laughed again and I gritted my teeth.
“You’re gonna do something for me. You’re gonna drop the charges against my parents so they can be free. And after that, I can decide if you get to live or not” he said.
For a while, I stared at him speechlessly like he was joking or something. Then, I laughed….. Kindly share out more interesting stories from generalloaded.com using the floating social media icon buttons below
“It seems the current change of situation has made u mad, Oscar. What makes you think I’d ever set your criminal parents free?” I asked and immediately, his hands sliced through the air and landed on my cheek.
I gasped as I turned the cheek away. How dare he??
It was so painful that I almost cried.
“Trust me,Maxine. You’re gonna do it. By the time I’m done with you, you will” he smirked and stood up.
“I just wanted to give you a hint. So, I guess we’re done here. Have a nice time” .
And he left with the rest of the boys afterwards while I bent my head and wept.
No; I’m never going to do it. Its never gonna happen.
Even if it means me losing my life, I’d die just to make sure those animals pay for
what they did to me.
I heard little muttering voices that sounded far but got to sound clearer in time.
My lids fluttered and finally opened and the first sight I caught was that of a drip.
“He’s awake!” I heard a familiar voice say and slowly turned to see mum, Charlene and the ABC girls.
“Oh my God! Son” mum cooed and held my shoulders.
“He’s really awake” Alexa said.
“How…How’re you feeling? Should we get the doctor?” She asked but I didn’t say a word immediately.
“Maxine” the only name I could think of suddenly escaped my lips.
I shook restlessly as the image replayed in my head.
She was taken away – right after I was shot.
“Where’s She?” I asked weakly.
“Maxine…they took her away. Where’s she?”
My eyes were fixed on mum who looked perplexed.
“D…Don’t worry, Noah. The police are seriously searching for her. She’ll be found” she replied and my head spun.
I tried standing up immediately but noticed my hand was wrapped as a result of the gunshot and mom and the rest pinned me down.
“Noah please, I beg you with God’s name, just stay calm,please. Maxine will be fine, I promise. Don’t move,” mum said tearfully and I felt weak.
No; I still needed to find her.
I couldn’t breath normally knowing she was probably in danger.
“Noah please, you need to calm down. Maxine will be fine, okay? Please” Alexa also said but the only stopping me from leaving the bed was the fact that I was weak and felt so much pains.
“Maxine…” I mumbled and shook sideways.
“Noah please. Get the doctor!!” I heard mum say and running footsteps followed afterwards.
Maxine!…. Kindly share out more interesting stories from generalloaded.com using the floating social media icon buttons below
“Oscar, are you sure of this?”,I asked in a half whisper as I stood in front of Oscar in the room.
“Are you sure we should be doing this?? Kidnapping Maxine and trying to force things on her. Its illegal”.
“Come on, Ruby. Grow up! I’m only trying to do what best for the family. Don’t you want mum and dad to get out of jail??” He asked, sounding pissed off.
“Of…Of course, I do. But I never thought it’d go through this process. What if we get caught? We might serve a lifetime in jail!” I poured out my fears.
“That’s never gonna happen, okay? So, quit panicking! I’ve gotten everything completely under control. Maxine will get out our parents outta jail and we’ll leave the county immediately”.he enthused.
“But…”,I paused and sighed.
“I’m just scared, brother. This is illegal and I don’t like it. Besides, mum and dad were wrong. They murdered Maxine’s parents. Do we still have to hurt her?”.
Immediately, he gripped me roughly by the arm.
“Listen to me, Ruby and listen very good. It’s either you’re with the family or against us. It doesn’t matter what our parents did. We still have to save them. Do you understand??” He growled and I just nodded perfunctorily.
Christ! I’ve never seen this part of him.
“Good” he mumbled and let go of my arm before walking out of the room.
