•••"Where is he? The meeting is about to begin" Volga asked someone but, just like the four other guys she had asked before, this one also responded that he didn't know. She sighed longingly as she felt like she started to lose her cool, although that building was big she had practically inspected it in its whole, and now she didn't know where else to look."You still can't find him?" someone shouted behind her. When she turned around she found Pam running toward her, once she reached her she bent while trying to catch her breath.[She must have been looking for him on her side too] Volga guessed, and at the same time, she started imagining how should she punish him for causing so much trouble to the people there, when he would catch him."Does he have the habit to disappear like this? Maybe he is in danger, I should gather a team to-"Volga put her hands on her shoulders to stop her as she felt that she was about to start panicking, "keep calm, no need to go that far. He does have t
•••Nelson stopped the car and when he came out, followed by Sania, he found Konny with her personal guards behind her waiting for them. Sania ran in her arms and Konny welcomed her with a kiss while enjoying the irritated face Nelson had. She gently pushed Sania away and took a look at the car behind them before she brought back her attention to Nelson.With a large smug, she said "I see that you have taken the right decision. Congratulations"."I don't care about that," the man replied with a severe tone, the expression on his face showed that was very irritated. "I have done what you have told me to do so now it's your turn. Keep your promise"."I will I will," she repeated with a smirk on her face while waving lazily her hand, Konny was clearly enjoying that situation, "but before that, what about the two other women?""I just abandoned them there," Nelson responded coldly, "they kept calling me on my walkie-talkie but I ignored them"."You what?" Konny asked less satisfied all of
Jamal turned to Pam, "I have many questions I need to ask you, so you better go first, tell me what you want to clarify".The woman thought a little bit but at the moment she was about to talk her dad took the lead, "what are you doing here? Did you come to take my head and offer it to Konny?""Dad!" Pam shouted, and at the way she glanced at Jamal, she was obviously embarrassed by such a rude reaction from her dad.When she turned while intending to apologize, Jamal raised a hand to stop, "it's alright" he said to reassure her, "I want you to trust me and I will be completely honest with you so don't hold back, feel free to ask whatever question you want". He, then, looked at Phil, "she sent us, my team and I, to investigate your precise location, that's why we came with such a small number so that you will drop your guard and subsequently reveal your position to us".Phil opened his eyes, shocked."I knew it!" Pam couldn't help but shout in the face of her father, "it was too much s
Lowering her sight Carla could see that she, too, was shaking, she could even feel all her hair slowly erect due to the fear and the anxiety which could unconsciously activate her power. At that moment, she knew that she had to quickly calm herself, otherwise, Volga would see that and would consequently discover her secret powers, but whenever she tried, the images of what just happened would flash in her mind, making her adrenaline rise and subsequently reactivate her powers.Soon, the fear and anxiety left the place to rage and anger. Her mentor had betrayed them. The man she trusted the most, so much that she could even sacrifice her life for him, had just stabbed the whole army in the back by killing its leader."Yes, we should hurry up and go help him," she suddenly thought and said while putting a step forward.Volga raised her arm in front of her before she could go anywhere. "You promised me that you won't panic and you will stay calm no matter what happens," she said without
In the car, the ambiance was very awkward. Since they left the HQ, no one spoke a single word. Sania was leaning her head on the window pane of the car, looking bored. Nelson had his arms crossed on his chest, he was shaking his leg up and down impatiently while glancing at Sania from time to time while looking extremely anxious. Carla, who was sitting just between them, was feeling quite uncomfortable, she would, sometimes, stare at Jamal and Volga in front hoping that they would do something about that embarrassing situation but they did nothing.They both seemed deep in a soundless conversation as, without saying a word, they were exchanging weird eye contact and nodded discreetly to each other.Carla was not a telepath but she somehow managed to get a clue about their discussion. At her expression, she guessed that Volga was worried about something and so Jamal was trying to reassure her. Although it was not clear, Carla could understand that it was about something very important.
Konny stayed silent for a few moments, pondering on what Jamal and Volga just said to her before she opened her mouth to reply while pronouncing each of her words, "if I understand clearly, you're proposing to send only one small team to deal with Phil's entire army?"She then completed it without giving anyone the time to respond, "That's completely insane"."It's not exactly what I said," Jamal shook his head and went on to correct her, "my plan is to send a team to confirm or clarify our doubts about their number, identify their location, and find out about the power of their army".She clapped her tongue in opposition, "that's almost what I have said, you're asking me to send our best warriors, alone, for some pieces of information. They would be doomed. It's as if you're telling me to sacrifice them. What kind of leader are you?"Behind him, people started to whisper their indignation at each other and the complaints were becoming louder and louder. His colleagues sitting next to
After her short nap, Volga sat up on her bed and stretched out before she walked toward the door and left her room. In the hallway of that small house, as she was heading to the kitchen, with a glimpse to her right, she noticed Jamal who was sitting on the balustrade, staring away with a sense of absence. She stopped and changed her direction."Are you alright?" she asked as she was reaching him.The man turned his head gently accompanied by a sweet smile, "it's the fifth time you've asked me this since we arrived"."That's because I feel like something is wrong with you". She went to place herself just in front of him, "something is bothering you, I know it, but after all my efforts you still don't want to share it with me, does it mean..."Jamal landed gently his hand on her shoulder to stop her before she finished, "believe me, you are the person I trust the most in this journey, so I will ask you to trust me back. I'm not lying when I'm saying that I'm totally fine".They stared a
"Oh?" Jamal exclaimed, surprised "I didn't expect that everyone would be already up".Everyone in the room was looking at him awkwardly, maybe because he was naked, dressed with only one towel hung around his hips which was covering the lower half of his body until his knees.They have been silent for a moment now and Jamal started to feel not at ease, the more they were staring at him the more he was feeling embarrassed. Carla tried vainly to get her sight off his body, her face was all red while Nelson and Volga were staring at him with astonishment and he even sensed a bit of fear in their eyes.Jamal thought that the situation would stay like that again for some more minutes until Sania jumped out of her bed, and walked toward the locker to take two white bathrobes, she put the first one on her shoulder while throwing the second one at Jamal who quickly used it to cover himself. She then walked toward the exit and before getting out she said, "I want everyone to get out of here an
