My eyes shot open and all I could see was white. When my eyes slowly adjusted to my surroundings, I discovered I was in a hospital like room. A bandage was wrapped around my head and an IV tube was connected to my hand.
I forced myself to remember what happened before I lost consciousness.
I remembered I was staring at Jao a little longer than I had intended and he had caught me. Then a few seconds after I laid my head back on the headrest, something collided with our van that made it tumble over.
The missile launched at our vehicle made it start to catch fire. Jao had lost consciousness almost immediately at the force of the missile Como g in contact with our van, then I remembered trying to unbuckle the seatbelts which were jammed. The henchmen with us were in no good condition as well.
I remember seeing some people trying to help
I looked up and froze. I froze because they were staring at me like I grew horns overnight."w-what? " I asked"you're smiling " Conny pointed out. I let down my head in embarrassment. I shouldn't be but I was, they just caught me smiling like an idiot.When I looked up, they were all smiling, and like idiots too, but why were they smiling?"why are you guys smiling? ""because you're smiling " Mike said. His smile was getting larger. Ugh! these guys, I rolled my eyes."come on, let's eat before the food gets cold " Julian called"yeah yeah " everyone went to the dinning table.The food was so tasty that it almost made me cry, almost. I missed us sitting together like this, before all this madness began.They may have been used to being attacked all the time but I wasn't. This madness was rubbing off on m
A few hours had passed and we were still at the base. It was too good to be true that we had caught the mole, after weeks of endless search without any trace of evidence. The relief I felt in the van vanished when I saw who the mole was. KelvinI may not be close with Kelvin but we'd had a few conversations together and he seemed like a cool person. Plus, he was a huge fan of Nico, he always looked up the man like a role model, so why would he betray someone he claims to look up to. After we had confirmed the identity of our mole, Nico had showed us the clues that led to his exposure for us to study closely. They were all pretty plain and looked staged, but why hadn't we been able to find them all these weeks we've been searching.Kelvin was currently being interrogated in the torture room. I couldn't bear to stand and watch so that's why I left to go outside and get some air.<
With those last words of Nico, we left a shocked Laburnum with a lifeless Kelvin, then we all headed back to our base.We already found the person or persons behind the mask, but does that mean all these madness is coming to an end? I seriously hope it is.When we got back to the base, Nico called for a meeting."well, it's been one hell of a week... we finally caught our mole, who sadly passed away this morning...." he began as everyone sat in their seats, somber."but the good news is, we finally know who's behind all this...now we know where exactly we are supposed to strike..." there were nodding of heads to signify agreement."now, we're all going to go home for a long rest...we all deserve it after all the madness that's been going on... ""so, we take a break today and we're all going to gather here tomorrow to start our plan
"who's up for some yummy dessert?! " Julian called out from the kitchen."Ooh me! me! " Mike hopped on the couch. Sometimes it's really hard to believe he was Conny's older brother. Like Conny acts way more matured than him."me too! " Conny called out"me three! " Blake called out"me four! " Harry called out."I'm up for some " Jeff shrugged, focused on his phone"ugh! you ruined it " Mike whined"ruined what? " Jeff asked, still focused on his phone"don't act like you don't know...you should have said 'me five ' " he kept whining. Jeff and I rolled our eyes at his level of childishness."whatever, I said what I said " he peeled Mike away from his body and went back to his phone."kill joy " Mike huffed and turned his attention to me. He looked at me with a 'please don't be like him ' loo
Three weeks later, everyone is slowly recovering from all the previous events and operations continued. I also resumed my work at the warehouse against Harry's protest.After the last attack where I was almost killed, Harry was against me doing the deliveries. Even Conny, Mike and Jeff agreed too but Nico was not having any of it. And since he was the boss, there was no going against him. Even though Harry sometimes threw tantrums, Nico still ignored him.I sat down in the storage room watching some workers prepare the weapons I was to deliver later in the afternoon. This was going to be my fifth delivery in the past three weeks.The first delivery was two days after the break, I was completely surprised that there was going to anyone who wanted to deal with La rinascita but I guess Nico really had some good connections with his clients. And to be honest, I was scared of going to make the delivery. I was scared
Last night was the first time I had ever seen Julian snap. He was always more of the calm and collected one amongst all of us. That led me thinking that whatever had made him snap like that, definitely wasn't good. And just like Nico had said, the production of the M-16 kicked off. Julian was still pissed off by the recklessness of Nico but there was only much he could do about it since he was just Nico's second in command. The client who goes by the name of Vermont, ordered for 500 pieces of M-16. If I was suspicious before as to why he needed a prototype weapon that hasn't completely been tested. I was now more suspicious that he ordered for that much. Don't get me wrong, him ordering that much ammunition was good business since he was paying a really hefty price. I was only questioning why he would want an ammunition that was still under examination.<
Edgar.......... I have to go on a mission where I could probably loose my life and Nico is choosing Edgar to protect me? Now I'm wishing I had taken the self defense lessons seriously.I can understand now why Julian and the rest were angry, how could Nico have even taught of something like that. Practically everyone knows how much Edgar hates my guts...the guy even hates my entire existence, and I have to go with him? I should probably just kill myself right now and get it over with."I think Nico is going nuts " Blake immediately we entered our house"Ya think?....dude has gone nuts already! " Mike said"I can't believe he's sending Cole on a suicide mission " Jeff huffed"guys, can you please?! " I said a little more aggressively than I had intended. Their fault though, they didn't have to keep rubbing it on my face.I dragged myself lazily up the s
The pain at the back of my head jolted me out of my subconsciousness. Instant panic flooded me as I realized I was in an unfamiliar surrounding, my arms and legs tied to the chair I was placed in. I remembered being in a wild car chase with whoever wanted us dead. I remembered almost reaching the crossroad and the unknown car slamming into ours, then me blacking out. Oh gosh, we've been abducted. My greatest fear now coming into play, and maybe even worse....me not making it out alive. As futile as it might seem, I did what any normal person in my shoes would have done, and that was........to scream for help. "h-help! " I screamed as loud as my lungs could allow "somebody help me! " I screamed again, but my voiced echoed back at me. I scanned the room one last time before deciding to give my voice one final trial.
