Thunder crackled in the distance as the clouds grew bright with lightning which lasted for a split second. That split second was enough for him to see clearly that it was Elena.And the look on her face was heart breaking. It took a while before it dawned on him that Elena just saw him kissing another girl.Elena had a huge rain boots on with an umbrella and a coat, but as she saw him, the umbrella fell off her hands, while the rain poured heavily on her without mercy.She could taste salt and she wondered at the back of her mind if it was her tears or the rain was salty.That was not her main cause of worry at the moment. All that matters was that she felt like though someone has slammed their hands through her chest with a chainsaw and drove it in as it sliced through her heart, cutting it painfully, the machine whirling without mercy.She choked back a sob and turned on her heels. She wasn’t going to let him see her breakdown.“Elena wait!” Ajax called out to her but that was wh
“Stay here.” Ajax whispered to the duo. Natasha and Raphael had accompanied him to Caroline’s house. It was already night when they got to the house.It was conveniently not far from the college. He wasn’t surprised because Caroline had to stay close to school since she could not get dorms.“And miss out all the fun?” Raphael said shaking his head in disagreement.“I’m serious Raph.” Ajax chided. An emotion similar to fear flashed in his eyes as he glanced around, hoping they were safe. “This dude is dangerous. And I don’t mean high school boys dangerous, I mean Like lethal and evil villain kind of dangerous. So, please just Stay here with your girl. I can’t be trying to save myself and Elena with you and Natasha.”“We should listen to him Raph.” Natasha whispered tugging Raphael, fear evident in her eyes.Raphael rolled his eyes at him but nevertheless, he agreed.“Once you hear my signal, come in. I might need reinforcements. Once you see me walk out, that means you would have to le
“Hey Tasha.” Raphael said beaming with a boyish cocky grin. That grin that did things to her. It was one of her weaknesses. “Are you going to invite me in or..” he said after a long silence in which Natasha just stared at him.Natasha turned crimson with a smile and pulled back away, giving him space to come in.Raphael smirked cockily.As he stepped in, Ajax appeared from his hiding and followed behind him.Natasha’s jaw fell open in surprise. Her countenance also fell and she stared at Raphael unbelievably.“Raphael? Why is he here?” Natasha asked, a frown forming a crease in her forehead.Raphael smiled at her again, then his smile fell and turned into one of worry. “Are you okay?” He asked, concern seeping into his voice.She nodded at him and walked to her own bed.Ajax eyes scanned the room. It looked just like his own room at the dorm. Two beds at the opposite sides with a door leading to the bathroom. Ajax used to think she had two room mates, which meant it was a triple dorm.
“What?” Natasha asked, confusion evident on her face.“Don’t play dumb with me.” He sneered as he advanced slowly towards her.“What do you mean!” Natasha asked, eyes wide with fear and taking a step back away from him.“You have her bracelet that looks ripped or cut. Probably from a struggle. You have scratch marks too and you are on edge.” Ajax said his voice rising.“Well.” Natasha deadpanned as she regained her composure. “I have no idea where she is.” She said. “And these marks have nothing to do with Elena, so excuse me, I have to go.” She concluded and walked away.Ajax lunched forward and grabbed her hands to stop her from leaving.Natasha stopped abruptly, eyes flickering from his face to his fingers gripping hers.“Please Natasha. Where is Elena.” Ajax pleaded. Hoping that maybe if he approached her softly, she would perhaps answer him.“Let. Me. Go.” She sneered at him. “I have no idea where you Elena is. And I have to go.”He glared at
“You really do love me don’t you.” Nicholas said, eyes gleaming teasingly.“I hate you.” Ajax mumbled as he walked out of Nicholas’ office.“If you hated me you would not have saved my life.” Nicholas yelled after him.“I should have just let Mr Thorne finish you off.” Ajax said as he rolled his eyes while the door shut behind him. He could hear Nicholas cackles in the office.Ajax had started his internship at grey’s labs and Nicholas made it his life mission to rub it in his face that he, Ajax, loved him very much.Ajax regretted ever saving him.Sometimes, he asked himself why he saved Nicholas, his sworn enemy. He never seemed to know why.Actually, he knew in his subconscious but he was never going to agree to it. The spring term/ semester had resumed and Ajax had finally returned to school.He was nervous on his way back. He didn’t know how to face Raphael nor Elena.He felt nostalgic when he opened the door of his dorm. Raphael w
“What do you mean cleansed?” Ajax asked.“The system is out.”***The scientists left the room, leaving just Ajax and Nicholas.They had been there for some minutes alone.“How long before he awakens?” Ajax asked. He was beginning to get worried. Worried that Elena would be worried that he’s not back and also worried of her dad. Okay, that was too much worry in one sentence but yes, he felt that worried.“Give it a little more time.” Nicholas said. After some moments, Mr Thorne stirred up again.As soon as his eyes opened, he looked straight at Ajax. “You!” He sneered, eyes livid and feral. In that same split second, they look disappeared from his eyes as he stared at Ajax.Ajax could not understand the look in his eyes but Nicholas could.It was the look you give to a stranger you see in the same room with you when you just wake up in a hospital bed.“You…” he whispered as he stared at the both of them. “Who.. who are you? Wh.. Where am I?” His eyes flickered between the two of them
Ajax stared at his hands. Did he just try to protect Nicholas? Did he just shoot Mr Thorne with- what the hell was this device anyway? His eyes inspected it, hoping to find a name or brand imprinted on it.. “Ajax!” Raphael exclaimed as he ran towards Ajax. “What the hell did you just do!”“The right thing.” Nicholas cut in as he dragged Thorne’s body to a black van that Ajax had not noticed until now.“What did I just do!” Ajax exclaimed as it dawned on him that he might have aided in killing someone. “Oh my God!” He whispered, his voice quivering, his fingers lifted up to his lips as his eyes flickered from Raphael to Nicholas. “Did you- is he-““Nope. He’s still alive. He’s not dead. I only ejected the system from him.”He sighed, as he felt the wave of relief wash over him.“What? System? What’s going on?” Raphael asked looking torn in confusion.“Raphael. I think it’s high time I let you in to know the secrets of Grey’s labs.” Nicholas said placing a hand on Raphael’s shoulder l
Gasps of shock filled the air as confusion and surprise flashed in everyone’s faces. “What is going on?” Massie asked as she visibly gripped her newly wedded husband’s hand tightly.Mr Thorne seemed to be unsure at first before realization struck on him. “Babe. Do you trust me?”Massie stared up at him, eyes full of confusion. “Yes.. yes I do.” She said stuttering.“Good. I need you to go back to our wedding field and stand at the pulpit. Don’t turn your back until you’re there. Don’t leave until I’m back.” He whispered in a rush. His eyes visibly begged her to listen to him.She nodded even though she looked unsure. She turned to leave, grabbing her flowing wedding gown in her hand, she headed back to the field.As soon as she left, the wedding guests followed suit scattering around, leaving the scene.Ajax got to find out that most of them were hired people. Thorne and Massie had little no friends and they did not want the seats to me empty, so they hired people.Vaughn, who was a
