“You came for me, so do what you have to and let my brother and his fiancee go free.” Elliot said.
“Aww, he’s so selfless.” Rex mocked.
“Rex please don’t drag these innocent people into this mess. I made the mess and I’m ready to pay for it with my life, just let them go.”
“And what if I decide to let you live while I take out both of them?”
“No, no, please don’t do that. They deserve to be happy please. They’ll be getting married the day after tomorrow Rex, please.” Elliot went on his knees begging.
“Wonderful! Elliot begging at my feet. I never thought today would be such a fun experience.”
“Rex, I beg you in the name of all you hold dear.”
“Elliot, you’re ruining my plans. I want to tear one of those two to pieces and the fun part is, I’ll let you have a turn at tearing their flesh.”
All the tears I had been battling came down in full force. I let out a loud wail, turning everyone’s attention to me instantly.
The petite woman immediately landed two hot slaps on both cheeks. My vision got blurred and my sobs got caught in my throat.
“Pixie, learn to be gentle to your fellow woman.” Rex or whatever his name was said, his voice dripping with sarcasm.
He moved to my side and I became extremely terrified. I hung my head as tears continued dripping from my eyes. He used a finger to raise my head. I shook off his hand and I could hear him chuckle. He tried again, I was scared of what he would do to me if I resisted again so I allowed him raise my head.
“Are you okay?” He used his thumb to wipe the tears that kept rolling down.
I couldn’t find my voice, I just looked at him with fear. He smiled at me.
“Damn! She’s pretty. You have an eye for the beautiful ones.” He directed his statement at Niel.
“Rex I beg you.” Elliot distracted him from the scan he was running on my face with his eyes.
“Shut it up man. I just found treasure. I never noticed she was so pretty till now.” His hand left my face and travelled down the length of my arm making me shiver.
“Boss, we’ve wasted more time than we planned to.” The petite woman said with irritation apparent in her voice.
“Shut up woman or I’ll have you tied up too. Your name is Jamille right?” He asked.
“Yes.” I croaked.
“Listen Jamille, I won’t hurt you if you do what I want.” He made me stand and began untying me.
“Rex, this is unfair. Her fiancé is seated right there. Don’t do it please.”
Realization dawned on me at that point. Rex was about to take my pride in the presence of Niel and all these terrifying men
“No, no, please don’t do this.” I pleaded as he pulled me by my wrist towards the bed that was supposed to be my matrimonial bed in two days. I tried to pull myself from his grasp to no avail.
“You don’t wanna make me angry buttercup, I slap a lot better than Pixie does.”
“Stop it already Rex. If you want to kill me, then do it and leave the lady alone.”
“No, Elliot this is part of your torture. I want you to watch me keenly as I take this precious flower. You know you’re not good at fights, so c=don’t come near me. Besides, there are enough guns in this room to blow your head if you dare.”
He returned his attention to me. Instead off pulling me, he lifted me off the ground despite all, my kicking and punching. He dropped me on the bed with a thud. I kicked once more but he was fast enough to grab hold of my legs and twist them both at the same time, leaving me with excruciating pain.”
“Stop!” I heard Elliot yell and then I heard gunshot that distracted Rex. I rolled off the bed to the floor.
“Damn! What happened to the silencer you fool?” Rex shouted and Elliot groaned in pain at the same time.
“I warned you Elliot but you wouldn’t listen and now you’ll have to pay for daring to attack me.”
“I’d rather die than let you defile that poor thing.”
Miss petite came to me and dragged me up. I was beginning to think she had a personal issue with me but I couldn’t remember ever meeting her or stepping on her toes. From the corner of my eye, I saw Niel trying to free himself but he stopped once a gun was aimed at his head.
“Since dying would be a better option for you, I won’t let you die neither would I give you the option of choosing who I should blast away from this earth. I’m just gonna shoot one of them. Before I do that, I have a little present for you.”
I watched as he shot Elliot twice, on his arm and his knee. This time he made sure the silencer was in place. Then, he turned to us. “Bring the lady close to her man.” He ordered and I was dragged back to my seat.
“I want you both to hear the sound the gun will make when it kills one of you, so I’ll take off this silencer.” He did as he said and I heard the most dreadful gunshot in the world.
