๐Ÿ˜’ Elo’s POV ๐Ÿ˜’

“Why are you back so early.” Rose asks, powdering her face and I sighed, I still feel bad, I shouldn’t have left Jake. Ugh.

“I can’t explain. Are you going out?.” I ask her changing the subject, the Rose I know, would still want to know why I’m back so early, she shakes her head at me, knowing I changed the subject on purpose. I sat on the bed and then took off my shoes, before, laying on the bed.

“Yes, Carl is taking me out.” She said, and applied a purple lipstick.

“Aww that nice, have you noticed that Gage and Emma, seems to hang out a lot.” I ask her curiously.

“Wow, I thought I was the only one noticing it, the both of them are always together, maybe they are dating already.”

“I don’t think so, they can not be dating and we won’t know, we are all friends.”

“Maybe they are afraid of what Jake would say, girl I’ve got to go now, see you later.” She blows me a kiss and then rushed out of the room. Ugh, I’m going to be bored, why did I even leave Jake’s house, ugh.

I stared at the ceiling boredly, I hate boredom, and the next thing I knew, I was already on a trip to Dreamland.

The ringing of my phone invaded my awesome sleep, and I cursed the personal ten times over. I opened my eyes to check what’s the time, and OMG, it’s 11:55, almost midnight, who the hell is calling me by this time, or could it be Rose, since she isn’t back from outing yet. Ugh, I’m going to give her a piece of my mind on e able to find the damn phone, I don’t even know where it is, the stupid phone has stop ringing. I finally, found my phone on the bed, can you believe It was actually under my stupid pillow, ugh. I went to my call logs, and I am more than surprise to see it’s Mrs Hunters that called me. I was still wondering why Mrs Hunters, would call me, when she called back again. Okay what do I do, now, should I pick it or not.

I was finally able to summon the courage, to pick the damn call, so i swiped the green button, I was about saying hello when her voice came through my phone speaker.

“Help, please help me, my house is on fire.” Mrs Hunters pale voice comes through the phone, and I stare at my phone in shock, what does she mean by her house is on fire. Is this a joke or what.

“Mrs Hunters, what did you say.”

“Please help…” And that was it, I called her name severally but she didn’t reply me, even though the call hasn’t been caught, oh my God, what do I do, what if this is a trick, what if she’s trying to trick me, into a trap, but what if her house is really on fire, oh my God, what do I do now.

Hmm, okay I know what to do, I quickly tore a piece of paper and informed rose of the call and that I’m going to Mrs Hunters house, I didn’t want to end the call, if not I would have sent, Jake and Rose a text instead. I just hope rose sees the letter on time, and that Mrs Hunters isn’t trying to trick me into a trap. Oh God.

************

I arrived at Mrs Hunters house, and through to her words, her house is really on fire, a lot of people are gathered around it, and some people are just recording the whole thing.

“Has anyone called the emergency number.” I asked a random stranger, standing in front of the Mansion gate.

“No, I don’t know.” The man answered, gosh, I can’t believe people.

“Please, someone call the emergency number, please I’m begging, there’s a lady in there, so, someone call the emergency number.” I yelled, and ran into the compound, I ran all the way from the gate to the Mansion, luckily for me, the fire hasn’t reached the lower part of the house. I went to the kitchen, on the tap and then removed my shirt put it under the tap, so the water can soak the shirt, once the shirt is fully soaked I tied it around my face like a face mask, so the smoke won’t affect me that much.

Then I ran upstairs, but that was were my luck ran out, there was fire everywhere, I took in a deep breath, and opened the first door, and no sign of Mrs Hunters, I checked the next room and two more rooms, but still no sign of Mrs Hunters.

“Oh my God, how am I supposed to open this door.” I utter in shock, staring at the fire surrounding the door, I’m hundred percent sure Mrs Hunters is in here. Okay Elo, you’ve watched a lot of action movies, and you’ve watched a lot of movies, where the hero rescue a person from fire, a burning house. So you can do this Elo, you can this, okay…, I raised my leg up and kick the door open, really hard.

Oh my God, everywhere is on fire, I close my eyes because of the intensity of the smoke, ” Mrs Hunters, are you in here, Mrs Hunters!!.” I yelled, my eyes closed, oh jeez the fire is too much, I rushed back to the sitting room and brought down the curtains, then ran back to the room, I tried using the heavy curtain to off some of the fire, luckily for me I was able to create a pathway, for me to get in the room, and I saw Mrs Hunters, laying down on the floor looking so pale, she must have inhaled a lot of smoke.

“Mrs Hunters, hey are you alright, Mrs Hunters.” I tapped her, but she didn’t wake up, oh my God, what am I supposed to do, hmm, what to do, what to do, I have an idea. I tore part of the curtain, and rushed to the bathroom, where I soaked the torn curtain with water. I rushed back to Mrs Hunters, and squeeze the water on her face, she coughs opening her eyes, “You, you came.” She whispered weakly.

“You did not expect me to leave you here, did you?.” I asks her, trying to help her get up, I placed my hand around her waist, and then helped her stand.

She stsred at me shocked, not able to say a word, I didn’t say anything either and then led her of the room, and out of the house, luckily for us, by the time we got outside, there was an ambulance waiting, right outside.

**************

“How is she doctor.” I asked the doctor, the minute he walked into the hallway, where I was ask to wait.

“Well, if it wasn’t for you, coming in time to save her, I would be given you a bad news but since you saved her, there would be know bad news, the patient is awake, you can see her now.” The doctor says, and I smiled, then thanked him.

“That won’t be necessary, I have to go home now.” I informed the doctor.

“Well, she asked to see you, so why don’t you see her before going.” Really, Mrs Hunters asked to see me, but I don’t want to see her, ugh.

“Okay then.”

“Right this way miss.” The doctor, says and leads me to Mrs Hunters ward.

I walked into the room a little bit nervous, not knowing what to expect. “The doctor said, you wanted to see me.” I said, to Mrs Hunters, who’s actually facing the wall, I heard her take in a deep breath before turning on the bed, so she could face me.

“How much do you want.” She asked in an emotionless tune, and I stare at her confuse.

“What do you mean.”

“I mean, how much do you want me to pay to, for saving my life.” I blinked my eyes in disbelief, as I stare at the woman, i left the comfort of bed for, in the freaking middle of the night, the woman I passed through fire for, is she for real, like, what the hell is wrong with this woman.

“You’re not seriously asking me that, right?.”

“State your price, and I’ll give it to you right now, you see I don’t want you thinking that I should like you, now that you saved my life or any thing, I don’t like you and I’m definitely won’t be indebted to you, so name your price, so I can have my rest.” Wow, just freaking wow, I can’t believe I saved this ingrate, this ungrateful wretch.

“Now let me tell you something Mrs Hunters, I don’t need your money, neither do I need you to be indebted to me, I left the comfort of my hostel in the middle of the night, because I wanted to saved a life. I don’t know what is wrong with your brain, or why you can’t actually use it to think well, but for once please, use your fucking brain, or you’ll end up chasing everyone dear to you and then what?, You’ll end up a sad lonely woman, with no family to call her own. The earlier you change your disgusting attitude, the better for you. Have a nice day, Mrs Hunters.” I turned my back at her, and walked out of her hospital room, with raised shoulders, yeah, that’s right, my father thought me a lot about dignity.

Emma's Revenge Written by Wilfred bright

โš”๏ธโš”๏ธ EMMA’S REVENGE โš”๏ธโš”๏ธ

๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ“ŒShe want’s to revenge…. He wants to arrest her๐Ÿ“Œ๐Ÿ“Œ

Chapter One
๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“–
Theme: Revenge in style.

Emma stepped down from her very much expensive McLaren Speedtail, her uncle gifted it to her on her birthday, and he said this exact words to her, “if you’re going to take revenge, then why don’t you do it in style.” He also let her know, that the car would become really handy, when she’s involved in a high speed chase with the police.

She put on her dark sunglasses and stared at the police man infront of her with such displeasure. It’s time to show this fools, how good of an actor you are… She thinks smirking.

“Do you mind telling me, why are refusing me entrance into that house?.” She asked scowling at the police man.

“Ma’am I’m sorry but you can’t come in, we are not allowing anybody in to the house. I’m sure you are citizen of america, which means you should know what is going on.” The police man replied her.

“So are you insinuating that I’m the killer, ans I’m here to kill me Ben. Look, and I don’t care about what is going on, all I want you to do… Is to open the bloody gate for me.” Emma said sternly, glaring holes into the man.

“I’m sorry ma’am, but I can’t let you in.” The man repeated, standing his ground.

“Would you stop apologizing to me and open the damn gate.” She yelled really annoyed, her voice higher than normal.

“Ma’am, please calm down. And don’t make a scene here.” The police man tried to calm her down. If his boss ends up witnessing this, he might end up losing his job.

“I shouldn’t make a scene, is that what you are saying. Okay fine, I will calm down.” She made a show of breathing in and out repeated. Then she takes off jer eyeglass, and looked at the police man with so much discontent. “I am beginning to think, that you don’t know who I am. So I will introduce myself. My name is Sophie Turner, and I’m Mr Ben girlfriend. Ir should I say one of his girlfriend’s. He asked me to come here today, to keep him relaxed, so… Could you let me in, now that you know that.”

The policeman began to wonder why he is so unlucky, to meet a crazed woman on such days. He exhaled heavily, then repeat his usual line, “I’m sorry ma’am, but you can’t go in.”

Emma face palmed her self angrily, “Would you stop apologizing to me. All I want right now from you, is to let me in!” She exclaimed.

“Ma’am, Mr Ben’s life is in danger and we the police are here to safe proctet him and by doing so… we can’t let anyone into the mansion.

“Oh my goodness, this is not happening. Did I ever stop you from doing you job. For f*ck sake Mr Man, why don’t you do your god-damned job and let me in. You can search me if you want, I am unharmed and I don’t have a single weapon with me.” She uttered angrily.

“Ma’am this is an order from above, and I can’t disregard it. Please let me do my job.” The police man was already close to getting down on his knees and beg her to leave. He wasn’t ready to lose his job.

“Oh my gosh, this is so embarrassing. I feel so insulted. Do you know what, I won’t stand here and take this anymore.. I will just have to call me Ben, and have him talk to you.” She huffed, then brought out her phone from her bag and then dialled Mr Ben’s number.

Mr Ben picked on the first ring, “Hello Sophia, where are you? I’ve been waiting for you.” Mr Ben said.

“I am currently standing infront of you gate, and the police men wouldn’t let me in. This is so insulting Ben, I think it would be best if I just turn back around and go back home.”

“No, no. There would be no need for that. I will call them right away, and instructs them to open the gate for you.” Mr Ben said, then hung up.

Emma only had to stand for just a few seconds before, a call came on the police man’s phone. He picked the call, exchange a few words with the caller, and then hung up.

“You’re free to drive in ma’am.” He Said to Emma.

“Next time, I’ll make sure you lose your job, if you ever dare insult me in the way you just did. I’m so sorry ma’am, please forgive me.” The policeman said, even though he knew that, there was absolutely no need for him to apologize, since he did nothing wrong. He was just following protocol.

Emma also knew that the police man, didn’t have a reason to apologize, cause he was never wrong. But of course she had to give them drama, so they won’t suspect her a bit. She wants the police thinking, that she is nothing but a spoilt rich bitch.

She got in her car and then waited for the gates to open before driving into the huge compound.

Once she drove into the compound, she parked her car at the parking lot and then came down. She walked to the mansion, and got inside. A maid informed her thar, Mr bird was currently in his room, waiting for her.

Without wasting much time, Emma walked to Mr Ben’s bedroom. And without knocking, she walked into the room. Mr Ben is a divorcee. His wife had to divorce man due to his cheating lifestyle. And that was why Mr Ben became a really easy target among the list of men she had to kill.

“Here you are, I have missed you so much.” Mr Ben said getting up from the bed, he walked to Emma and wrapped his hands around her, then kissed her on the lips.

Emma felt like vomiting, things she has do for revenge. “I also miss you too my love, I miss you so much.” She said returning his kiss.

“What do you think about, if we hit the bed first and have a little fun.” He said grinning.

Sex sex sex that is the only thing in this man’s head, what a foolish man you are… She thinks.

The idiot thinks that she has been sleeping with him, but what he doesn’t know is that she had particular kind of drugs, that she always have him. Whenever she comes to see him, she would inject the drugs in his water, tea, or anything that has to do with water, that he would drink.

ALSO READ :  His Not My Colour Chapter Ten

The drugs would make him really delusional, and makes him see things that aren’t real or true. The drugs would draw him into a world of illusion.

Whenever Mr Ben wakes up the next morning, he would end up thinking that he had the most amazing night ever with Emma, but what he didn’t know was, that it was all an illusion.

“Sure, but why don’t we get you relaxed first. I know that you are going through a lot of emotional rollercoaster right now, and that is why I recommend we drink atleast one glass of wine, and get all relaxed.” She kissed him on the cheeks, then walked to his mini fridge, and takes out a bottle of wine. She also took two wine glasses. Before pouring the wine, she brings out the injection that she had hid in her pant waist band. She empty the injection content on one of the glasses, the one she intended to give to Mr Ben. After that, she filled up the two glasses, held Mr Ben’s own drink in her right hand, and held her own drink in her right.

She hands over the drink to Mr Ben and he wasted no time, in drowning the whole content of the glass. She on the other hand, didn’t drink her wine, instead she excused herself to the toilet.

She stood in the toilet, and then counted up to 5. Once she was done counting, she walked back into the room, and just like she thought, Mr Ben was currently laying on the floor so still… But not dead.

She carried him up and laid him on the bed, happily. What…. what is happening to me. Why can’t I move my legs. What was in that drink you have to me.” Mr Ben asked her horrified, by the present state he’s in. Mr Ben said trying to move his hands and his leg.

“I really didn’t do anything much. Okay… maybe I did, but It wasn’t much really. First of all, I am the killer, the one who wants to take your precious life on the 1st of January. I met you in the club and because of, you are a big time cheater, you ended up carrying me home.” She paused, smiling brightly.

“Breaking news, all the sex we had, were nothing but illusions. I have been giving you drugs that could mess with your mind.” Emma said, clapping her hands excitedly.

“I would also want to you to know, that the medicine I have been giving you to. The drugs, can actually make you go paralyze, in other words immobile.

“I have been giving you the drugs in little dose, so you won’t end up getting paralyzed so quickly. The drugs I poured in your wine and today, I was only to wake up the other drugs, that had woken up.

“So.. this means that you are dead man.” Emma replied him, sitting down on the only couch that is in the room.

” You will pay for this you will…” Mr Williams opened his mouth wide and try talking. He couldn’t anymore he has lost his voice.

“Oops, sorry but I forgot to tell you that the medicine also makes you lose your voice. And so, which means you can shout or do anything. You just have to lay down there and listen to me talk. So I am very sure you must know of a certain Mr and Mrs Davis, the very same couple you connived to kill, all because if they knew a secret they shouldn’t know.” She paused.

“Well… I’m the daughter of those couples, you murdered in cold blood and you will die just the same way you wiped them out of existence.” She smirked at him.

“Well… In the next hour, that medicine would take it’s effect on you. It would start by burning all your intestines, then it would spread like a wild fire through your body and finally, burn your heart. Let’s just say, you will be a dead man in the next one hour. Happy death day, Mr Ben. In your next life, you had better come as a righteous person.” She grinned at him, then picked up her bag, arranged her dress and then left the room.

Emma walked out of the mansion, got into her car and drove out of the compound. She stopped outside the gate, and poked her head out the window of her car, “Next time you insult me again. I will make sure you do not have a job anymore.” She yelled loudly at the police, snickered and then drove off.

“Gosh.. I’m such a good actress.” She said out loud, laughing really hard. At the sane time, pulling of her wig, and the fake face she had on, the lenses and finally the belt. Now, it’s time to plan for her next target.

************

Oscar stared at the car of the lady that just left. His shaked his head, “Just look at her. Because she now sleeps with rich men, she thinks she had made it. You bitch, my job is freaking ten times better than yours.” He yelled really loudly.

“What’s the point of yelling, she already drove off.” His colleague said.

“I know right. I should have given her a piece of my mind, when I had the chance.” He said.

“Oh wow. You are really funny man. Few minutes ago, you were busy begging her and now… You want to give her a piece of your mind. So funny.” His colleague mocks, Oscar frowned.

“I’m a peaceful man, and that was why I begged her. I didn’t just want trouble.” He said scratching the back of his head, a little bit embarrassed.

“Yeah.. peaceful man indeed.”

ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡ู‡

Alex knocked on the door of Mr Ben’s room, but no answer. He knocked again and again, but still no answer. He decided to walk into the room, panicked that something must have happened to him.

He rushed into the room with urgency, and calm down a bit, when he saw Mr Ben sleeping peacefully. He was about going out of the room, when he notice that Mr Ben’s face, was a little bit pale. He walked to the side of the bed, and with a beating heart placed his funger, underneath Mr Ben’s nose. He is no longer breathing.

Alex calm his self down, then raised mr ben left hand up, and checked for pulse. He had no pulse!.

“F*ck! Damnit!. She f*cking beat me again. F*ck!.”

๐ŸŒบ Daniella pov๐ŸŒบ

I was coming out of the class after having some chat with Amy at the cafeteria because she seems to be broken and I didn’t even realize she had feelings for Bryan and it this strong.

I made up some lies when she asks about Martha even though I know she must probably be with Bryan. I don’t know what really happened but Jabson refuse to tell me and that lead to a little fight between us too.

“Isn’t that Martha?” Why is she with John?. Hope it not what I’m thinking, I quickly approach them and gave John a glare before dragging Martha away from him.

“Let go off me Daniella”she said and I kept dragged her till we reach the empty classrooms and I lock the door.

“What the hell is happening”I questioned.
“You should tell me why you bring me here when I was in the middle of an important something”She yelled at me and I was surprised.

“Martha? John is the importance thing you are talking about?”
“Doesn’t it worth it?”
“What have gotten into you”I asks.
“Maybe you should direct that to your friend”She sounded so rude to me.

“My friend aren’t we friends too?”I asks.
“I have a class”She said and I scoff.
“This is the same class you are having now tell me what happening and what were you discussing with John”I asks.

.”And why should I tell you?”she asks me.
“Even if you are Bryan have a little misunderstanding shouldn’t you be soughting it out instead of going to that bastard”I yelled.

“Why do everyone hate him?”
“You really want to know?”I asks.
“There is a party tonight at my house and John will be there come over with Bryan”
“No”she rejected.

“Why?”
“I don’t want to have anything to do with him”she said.
“Why for goodness sake”
“he tried to rape me are you satisfied”she fired at me.

“Rape? I thought you guys are married?”
“Okay fine !! this is the truth we are married but aren’t together because we hate each other guys and yesterday night he tried to rape me when I wanted to treat his wounds”

“What wound?”I asks in surprise.
“He was attacked by an hoodlums last night”she replied and I gasped.
“His he okay”I asks and she shot at me making me hold back my words.

“I hope you understand and stop all this drama because John is only been nice to me”she said.
“John is……”I kept quiet and stare at her for a while.

“Martha are you that blind?”I asks.
“I can see Clearly and you are putting on white”She said and I sigh deeply.
“He loves you and he just doesn’t want to hurt you because of his situation that he doesn’t realize I know a long time ago though”

“What do you mean”
“I think this is right time he need you or you might lose him forever but I still need some investigation I have a feeling John is behind is attack”
“There you go again”She clap her hand together.

“Martha I’m been serious, he need you now but why did he react like that because he already stop_OMG”I gasped.
“What?!”
“I will talk to you later”I ran out of the class and went to search for Bryan and Jabson and luckily I found them at the school backyard.

“Hey guys”I greeted but the both of them just snub me but I ignore that.
“I think I know what really happened”I said and they both exchange glance before looking at me.

“Know what? Your addiction occurred because you got injected with large dose of Vulgar last night”I said and Bryan punch Jabson in the face making me gasped.

“You f**king tell her”he roared and this is my first time I ever see Bryan mad at Jabson.
“No”he spat out blood.
“Omg”I squat and help Jabson up but he shove me away.

“He didn’t tell me, I found out myself okay”I said and he just wipe his hand.
“I’m serious Bryand I think you weren’t actually attacked yesterday but instead you were drugged and it only two person I know can do that.

“My father or John”he said and I nod.
“Sorry dude”he apologized to Jabson and he just ignore him and take care of his broken lips.

“Who even tell you I was attacked?”He asks.
“Matha”I replied honestly and he slum on the bench back.
“What did she say?”he asks.
“We just need to give her more time I guess”

“She can never forgive me and it hurt she is following that bastard”I almost cried as I watch Bryan speak.
