5 Don“t Come Or I“ll Kill You
—Akane's Point Of View—
I climb a tree and is now standing and waiting while holding a binocular.
Me, Nami, Seia, Kano, and even Laya and Jinno are given a task to find that old lady. First of all, it is just an old lady so why all of us have to look for her?
Oh, right. We have to do it right away because a brat is kidnapped by her. Actually, if they really want to catch that old lady fast, Layla and Jinno can do it alone since they are most experienced than us. But yeah.. Just who am I to refuse and complain.
Ash won't listen to me anyway.
I have to do this because if not Ela will get trapped in this case... which I wish it will. I just fucking hate her from the very beginning, especially that she has feelings for Ash. And Ash has the same feelings for her as well oh great. It's too damn annoying.!
"Akane, why are you spacing out? Let's go." Seia said when she landed on the branch that I'm standing on.
"Is the search over?" I asked with the hopes it will.
She shows an annoying expression, "Nah. No signs of her."
I grin. That's good then. "We are just actually wasting time."
"What.. Are you kidding me?! We have to find that old lady." I get shocked by her then she gets down and run towards Layla and Nami.
Fucking hell. So what! I don't even care. What I want is to get rid of that bitch Ela! Because of her... Because of her... Ash only thinks of her. We have been fighting a lot because of that girl. He started looking away from me. He only looks at her... And not on me! I wish she could just die.
What's that noise? Like something is on the bush. I look at the ground to search for it.
Oh, my, is this mission accomplish?
I take a glimpse of them to see if Nami and the others are near me. They are discussing something that I don't even care. I smirk. Well... It depends on me if mission accomplish or not. I jump down and slowly following her.
I'll finish this stupid case in no time by myself, and then Ash will surely praises me. I'll make sure to get back my Ash. The Ash that only cares for me. I'll get him back because I don't like the Ash at the moment. And once Ash loves me again, I can finally tell him the truth and that we can be together forever... Only the two of us.
"This is all stupid... That maiden is so dumb! It's really a wise idea to get rid of her, but thanks to her I got lots of supplies. Human flesh... A very young human flesh... Ahahaha... But fuck it.! Those expensive young flesh are in the police headquarters. I have to get it."
Seriously... I've never encountered such disgusting person in my life. This old lady should be ashamed because she's known as the Grand Maiden.
I followed her all the way till we reach an old small church. I look around and familiarize myself with the surroundings as I look for a perfect blind spot.
"This is the best place for a bad kid like you, Aby." she uttered as she tears up the black trash bag and pulls Aby out of it.
I gasp as I saw the brat. Fuck this old lady! What did she do to that brat?! Oh, god. I feel like vomiting.
She's the worst than Maiden Anna.
Right now, the brat is crawling on the floor trying to reach something or someone to help her, but she can't. She can't see anymore or even gather a strength to call a help. Her eyeballs are removed while her face are full of blood, like she is crying blood without eyes.
"Such a waste Aby. You're the most cheerful kid in the orphanage but here you go soaked in your own blood." She said then she turns her back and looking for something to pick up.
She went on the pile of garbage then she squats and vomits.
"This is not actually my doings so, I'm not used to this especially on a poor kid like you."
Then the old maiden grabs a broken steel and walks back to the kid.
"But it's your fault. Your eyes have seen a lot of secret already. You saw how that dumb maiden killed them, and you saw how I put her to silence. But don't blame yourself for that."
She's now standing besides the kid. This is not good at all! If she is really going to finish that kid then how am I suppose to impress Ash? I have to make a move.
I touch my dagger in the pockets on my hips. I'm ready to stop that old witch before it gets too late.
Now, the old lady puts the sharp tip of the steel on Aby's head.
"Don't even blame me, after all... This is your destiny." The old lady said as she lifts up the steel and ready to smash it on Aby's head.
This old maiden is really a witch. I stand up and about to throw one of my daggers on that witch when I heard a gunshot. It's from the entrance. I immediately hide myself against the wall when I saw Jinno runs fast towards her.
Ash and the others together with that Ela. Ugh! Why did she comes here? She already ruined one of our mission because of her, which caused Ash to lose one eye protecting her, and yet she still came here?! She really doesn't care about others.
"You really out of your mind... Even a child... Aren't you the Grand Maiden?!!" Seia bursted out of anger.
She had three little siblings, so seeing Aby in her situation right now makes her remember the tragedy that happened to them.
"She doesn't deserve to be called by that. She's a murderer." Layla said as she goes to Jinno and helps him to restrain the old lady.
"They say, killer hides its true identity either in darkness or in light." Kano commented as he went to Ela, because she ran towards Aby as soon as she saw the kid.
"You don't know anything, bounty hunters. You know nothing but to hunt." the old lady murmured while grinning.
Then Ela looks at her intensely as she forms a fist.
"You're the one here who know nothing but to kill innocent children! You are the worst... but I pity you because from now on you'll be starting to live behind walls. No lights, no foods, all alone by yourself. Then soon you'll start eating your own flesh.. And that will be your destiny, you monster." Ela confronted her that made us stare at her unbelievably. No one dares to break the silence.
I turn my sight at Ash sitting on his wheelchair. Nami and Seia are standing besides him.
I saw him smiling while looking at Ela. Oh.. Did Ela said that just to impress Ash? How great. While me just here behind the broken wall and hiding. Fucking great.!
I have to do something that will make Ash proud. I have to get him back to me... And then tell him that we are not siblings, that I'm just an adopted child.
I'm just his step-sister... And that we can be lovers.
That's why I have to get him back... But in what way? My attention got caught by the old lady as she is trying to get free from Jinno and Layla. I smirk.
"Why not give a witch a second chance huh." I whispered while having a very clever idea.
Then I pull out two daggers from my pocket and throw it to their direction. One hit at Jinno's leg and one hit at Layla's right eye. But not a direct hit, I just let it slip and make it bleed because her eyesight is very sharp, so she'll find me here if I don't hit her strength. Aside them, Ash and the others didn't notice what just happened as they are focus on Aby. And since I did that, the old lady is now free. At first, she got confused but then she ended up smiling and burst out of laughter. That's when they realize that the old lady is got free to rampage again.
"Ahahahahaha! This is it! The heaven gave me a chance to prove myself once again!!"
They got alerted.
"How did you..." Seia murmured while looking at Jinno and Layla laying on the floor in terrible pain.
Ah right. I forgot. My daggers are special... It has a poison on its sharp. And I just threw it without hesitation.
Seia got an idea as she is now starting to look for me. Oh, well. I'll just excuse myself that what I'm trying to hit is the old lady and not them. My plan is to set her free and then if ever she tries to escape that's when I'll take action and pin her down. Besides, I have an antidote so there's no need to panic at all.
"A-A-Aya... *sob*sob*... I want to see you... *sob*... It's too dark... I-I want to die..." The kid Aby uttered in pain while crying but only blood that drips from its orbit bones.
I saw Ela gritting her teeth out of anger. Then she walks towards Nami and grabs its gun. Ela pointed the gun at the old lady. I've never seen her got so angry like that.
"Look what you've done to her... You monster.!" Ela blamed her but she suddenly freezes.
"Oh what? Do you want to kill me? Go on then. Kill me! Kill me if you have the courage! Ahahahaha!" the old lady is provoking her.
Just what did she thinks she is? Grabbing someone's weapon and pointing it to the enemy while shaking? Only cowards like her are like that. I just don't understand that bitch. I hate her because of Ash but sometimes I thought that Ash only looks for her because he pities her.
She's crazy actually.
Like something is going on her mind. Here she goes again, shaking her head and fighting with someone on her mind. Then she bites her arm.
"Look at you... Ahahahaha!! You dare to point the gun on someone when you can't even use it?! Stupid!"
I agree with her, and I'm actually smirking here watching her stupidity. She dropped the gun that's why.
"I can't... " she murmured in fear.
What the hell Ela. This is why I hate her the most, because of her being so coward someone has to protect her.
The old lady smirks as she picks up the broken steel that she was holding earlier. And then she looks at Ela.
"If you can't then I'll show you..." she tightly holds the steel and lifts it up.
Wait... Don't tell me. She's going to throw it on Ela? I grinned. I'm starting to like that witch. That's right. Go on. Get rid of that bitch!
"I'll show you how to kill someone!!!" then she throws the steel towards Ela.
My eyes shift at Ash as he gets up on his wheelchair... Wait.
What are you doing Ash...
Why are you running...
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING ASH!!!
Don't go on her...
The steel... Instead of going it strikes to Ela then die, it goes to Ash. He ran towards Ela and hugged her to block the steel. It hit Ash's back.
I don't understand.
Why did he do that? Why sacrificing his own life just for that bitch... Why?! And now he got stabbed, but he's smiling and saying something on Ela? You really love her huh.. That's not fair...
Why her... and not me... Why...
Tears starting to flow down on my cheeks. That bitch. She didn't even realize all what just happened.
"Ash... Wait... What... Ash... No... No...!!" she was shock at first but now she dare to cry?!
It's all your fault!
I gritted my teeth as I walk towards her. "Damn you Ela..."
They turn all their sights on me. Jinno forced himself to stand up and knocked out the old lady even before she threw the steel but it's already late. And now all of them is looking at me like I'm going to kill someone. Seia looks at me while holding tightly her metal whip, and Nami grabs the gun on the floor and stand besides Ela to protect them, while Ela hugging Ash. Then, Seia and Kano are walking towards me.
Seia is looking at me angrily, "Akane... This is your fault. It's your daggers! Why did you do---"
"Shut up!!" I shouted.
I knew it! I know from the very start they are not my side. They treat me normal but when I turn my back they started getting suspicious at me. They favor Ela over me. Her again... I'm with them for over 5 years and Ela just showed up 2 years ago, so why her?!
Why is it always her! I pull two daggers from my pocket. They got alerted.
"Akane, you're really going to kill Ela..." Nami questioned my intention but I ignore her as my steps get bigger and fast.
"Stop this already Akane!" Seia shouted.
"Don't block my way.. I have to kill that bitch! She should be the one who got stabbed and not Ash!!!" I freaked out as I run.
But Siea and Kano also run and block me by holding my arms.
"Let me go!" I resisted, "It's all her fault! She killed Ash!!"
"It's Ash decision... And we're doing this because this is his last--"
A gunshot? But only Nami who has a gun here... I immediately look at Nami. She's laying on floor with her own blood... While Ela is standing in front of her and holding a gun.
"This is bad..." Kano murmured and looking at her worriedly?!
What the hell...
"This is terribly bad! She just killed Nami and yet you're still standing?!"
"Shut up Akane, you do know nothing." Seia angrily uttered.
What the hell... What's wrong with them?!
I gritted my teeth as stare at her, "Look what you did Ela! You killed Ash and now Nami!! It's all your fault!---"
"I told you to shut up.!" Seia stopped me by covering my mouth with her palm.
She's getting on my nerves. Go to hell Seia! I'm about to stab her side secretly when I get distracted by Ela.
She's biting her arm nonstop till it bleeds, "Stop... No! I'm not going to listen to you... Stop!!"
Who is she talking to??
I heard Kano cursed as he gets closer at her, but Ela notices him. She points the gun on Kano that makes him stop.
"Don't come... Please don't come... Don't come or I'll kill you!!" Ela screamed as she looks at us and crying.
But why is her right eye is red?
Then she points the gun on her arm and shot it in many times.
*Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!*
"Ela stop! Fuck... Kano where's that thing that Ash told us?" Seia said, her grips loosen.
I can slowly move my hands.
"It's on Layla..." Kano said as he goes towards Layla crawling on the floor and trying to reach the syringe in front of her.
"At this rate Ela will die if she continues on doing that." Seia uttered.
Something is wrong with them. She killed Ash and Nami, and yet they are still worrying about her? Why? Why is it have to be her...
I stare at Ela. She should die. That's right Ela, keep doing that. Just kill yourself already. But then she looks at me and notices me watching her. Our eyes met. I suddenly felt scared. Her right eye turned into deep red...
But what's that? What's that thing on her head? Something is growing on her head... A black horn...?
What the... She's a monster...
She killed Ash and Nami... And soon she will kill all of us here.
I pull out all my daggers and run towards her.
"Die! You monster!!"
I have to kill her!
To be continued...
