Ma’am Nina : make sure you stay out of trouble. Don’t use your powers except when necessary. Okay
She touched Blue’s cheek and Blue smiled
Blue: it’s okay mother. I’ll be extra careful
Ma’am Nina smiled
Adrian : I’ll personally take care of her.
He hugged her sideways and they laughed.
Ma’am Nina : don’t you think that’s quite the opposite. Blue please, take care of him personally.
They laughed again
Derek came back from the garage where he went to check the car.
Derek: the car’s fully effective and ready to go. So shall we?
Adrian : sure, let’s go
Cindy and Audrey pulled their luggage to the car.
Adrian and Blue were walking hand in hand while Derek was talking with ma’am Nina.
Audrey and Cindy were already putting the luggage into the car.
Adrian : are you scared?
He looked down at Blue’s face and held her hand tightly
She shook her head in the negative then she looked up at him
Blue : are you?
Adrian : no I’m not scared because I know My Blue is with me
Adrian : we’ll be okay, all right?
Blue : all right
They got to the car
Cindy : I’m going to miss you so much
She hugged Blue
Audrey : and I am going to miss you so so much
She joined the hug too
Blue : I’ll miss you too so so so much
They laughed happily
Derek: we really have to go now you know. Adrian has lots to do. Same with you Blue
They released from the hug
Adrian : hug your mother and come to me already, I’m missing you
Audrey: Blue stay away from Adrian
He widened his eyes
Adrian : you wanna kill me?
Blue hugs her mother passionately
Blue : I’ll be back as soon as I’m through
Ma’am Nina : eat well
Blue : hahaha, yes mother
Blue : good bye mother
Nina : bye Blue Maid
Adrian held Blue’s hand and pulled her to himself.
Derek: seriously guys, we really need to go
Blue : why are you in a hurry?
Derek: the truth is……. I’m hungry
They all laughed hysterically
They got into the car
Derek at the drivers seat and the lovers at the back
Audrey and Cindy kept saying ”bye bye”s until the car went out of view
Cindy : why do I have a feeling I won’t see Derek again?
Audrey: is he traveling out of the country?
Cindy : I don’t know though
They went back inside with ma’am Nina
Derek told me everything about Adrian.
He’s with Blue and they are coming back today.
Only few people know about that
That’s his parents, and Blue’s friends and mother.
Derek will be the one to drive here
It’s supposed to be secretive.
But I informed Gladys
We are going to waylay them and each one of us will abduct the person we are after.
And then make it seem to them as a rescue mission.
I showered and dressed up.
Packed my hair in a pony tail and then wore my leather jacket and a took my phone.
It rang immediately
It was the person that works for me but is part of Gladys men.
He’s the inside man to me.
I picked up
????yes Cadio, any news?
????your brother is dead
????Gladys sent men to waylay them ahead of you. She had plans on killing Blue. But Derek took the bullet and he’s dead
I couldn’t believe the news.
It’s so not possible
????but how can that…. How can that…. How can that happen??
I stammered in both confusion and anger and pain
????we’ll talk about that another time. All I know is that she just sent me to finish you up and I’m coming
????just leave because I’m coming for you in the next 30 mins Belinda. Go away
Then he hung up
I stared blankly at the phone
My eyes welled up with tears
A text message came in
????Belinda, leave now
I blinked my eyes and replied
????okay, I’m leaving now
I quickly and hurriedly took my necessary things and wore a perfect disguise.
I texted my mother that I was traveling for some time
I was so scared when I got out to the city
I felt everybody was looking at me
I got to the airport and successfully boarded the plane.
I sat down and sighed heavily
I still couldn’t believe that Derek was dead.
No he couldn’t be dead
Now I bitterly regret eating with the devil using a short spoon
Me: but I don’t see why we’re going alone. Shouldn’t we go with security
Adrian : no Blue. I prefer it this way.
Derek : we really can’t trust anyone anymore
Adrian : the people who abducted me earlier were disguised as guards. I thought they were normal people
Derek: so Blue, we decided to make it like this. Not everybody knows we’re coming back to Edinburgh. No body knows that he was even with you guys. Some still think he is still in kidnap
I smiled as Adrian winked at me
We got to a bridge and surprisingly stopped because of some road blocks by the police.
Derek got down and I needed fresh air so I got down too.
I went to the front of the car and strectched myself a bit
Derek was coming back and I saw a strange dark car monitoring us.
Me: Derek what happened?
He wanted to reply when he suddenly stopped and widened his eyes
Me: Derek what’s…..
Derek: Blue watch out…. …
He quickly and swiftly pushed me away from his front and then he fell down
I fell down to side of the road
And looked up at the direction of the gunshot.
It was that car
It wind up the window and drove off quickly
Adrian came out and we ran to Derek
His blood was filling the whole place
I began to cry
Adrian: we’ll get you out of here buddy. Hang on
Me: I’ll seek for help from the police
I wiped my tears and ran forward but the police there pointed their guns at me.
All of them
I froze immediately
Police : just cooperate with us or you’ll end up like him
I closed my eyes and tears streamed down
The police were not real ones
They were disguised
The next thing I felt was a sharp pain on my neck and I passed out
