Oh dear, this so wasn't happening!
What to do?
Should I strangle him!?
Oh hell no!
Eric is my friend and like a brother to me!!
But he was a villain to Lisa!
But still, if only you could cut him to half and throw him to gutter-
"Shut Up!" I shouted to myself!
I paced worriedly in my room, wondering what to do while all in the house were fast asleep like bull and goats.
Eric greeted us friendly, hugging me and Edward like old times, and though we talked a lot, of ancient rules and all, I couldn't help but feel anxious seeing the clock on the wall, as it ticked one by one second.
In my haste, I started to chew my nails, tapping my foot on floor worriedly.
Lisa wasn't picking up her phone, no matter how many times I dialed her number and at times like this, I felt like if only I had these wings of parrot then I could just fly over to her home, telling her not to come tomorrow.
Or if I were a dragon, I could blow her whole house away with just my one firy breath!
Yes! That would have been cool!
It would have been much better if I were a dragon!
But if I go now, Edward would surely drag my anxious fat butt out of her house in no minute.
I clutched my skull, gripping my brown curls and pulled them in frustration.
"What to do!? What should I do!?"
I glanced towards my bed, which was empty, and I still didn't understand why the hell would Rose go outside at this time of hour. She told me she had to take care of something and asked me not to ask further but I couldn't help but get worried so I asked Michael to go with her.
At first he was unwilling, sliding his excuse of guarding my house but I told him specifically that he didn't need to worry cause unless we won't get attacked by rifles, bombs and bullets, there is no need for him to provide us unrequired safety anymore.
"I am borrowing your car, Emily?"
I was lost in my own worries, "Oh yes, go on! Take it!"
Rose nodded and opened the door.
"Wait, tell me something first!?"
She cocked her head to the side, getting clearly frustrated. "What!?"
"Do you even know how to drive?"
She thought for sometime, pouting her lips in un-rosy manner.
"Well..hmm.. No! I don't!"
"But there is always first time for everything!"
"Woah! Rose? Are you sure you packed all of your things properly in New York, before coming here?!"
"Yes! Of course!"
"Well then you forgot the most important thing to bring here, you idiot!"
"What, my brain!?"
"No, your common sense, you rotten smelling ginger thrown aside in a blasted refrigerator!"
She stood as calm and composed as ever, stretching her arms and yawning casually at me.
"If all your motherly affection had flown into gutter already then I must get going fast! Take care, Emily!"
"No! You're not going alone! Michael!"
In a minute, heavy footsteps approached me. Michael came running fast, opening the door quickly and pushing aside Rose roughly to stand in front of me, his posture erect as a cactus growing proudly on the pot of my bedroom window.
"Yes! Mrs Emily, how can I help you?"
I waved my hand towards Rose without saying a word and Michael stiffened instantly, not daring to even look at Rose. "Go with her!"
Michael didn't respond for minutes, while Rose grew more annoyed by each passing second.
"Well then now we know your innocent little owl isn't joining me in my wild adventure, I must get going-" Rose attempted to leave.
"No! Michael go with her!"
"She doesn't even know how to drive properly, she would end up hurting herself before drowning her feminine pride to ask you for help, Michael!"
Michael stared at the floor, lost in his own dilemma of helping his sir's friend or staying away from that dangerous Mafia who he thinks Rose is!
Rose didn't respond or even look at me. Picking up her gun and pushing it inside her jeans, she smiled mildly at me before opening a door to walk out.
"Don't wait for me, Emily!", She waved her hand behind, walking to the front door.
I heard Michael take a sharp intake of breath. "Hell, fuck me now!"
Immediately he ran after her, climbing down the stairs quickly, calling her name frantically behind her.
Rose!? Oh wow! Where the hell does he learn to have this much courage to neglect "Mam" from her violent name now!? She wouldn't peel his tongue now, would she!?
I ran after him, curious to see what would happen after, my feet moving like a cat after a fat mouse.
"Rose, wait! Rose!"
Michael opened the front door while I just stood at the door, hiding behind it a little to peek at him.
Rose continued walking, folding her arms around her chest, her beautiful hair flowing slowly with the light breeze, while she stared at the space, humming sweetly to herself.
Suddenly, she turned around to look at him. "Rose!?", she asked, raising her eyebrows at Michael.
Michael stopped in front of her, huffing slightly but when he raised his head, he looked slightly hazed by her mysterious beauty, his lips opened slightly only to close again, his words lost in his throat.
When he didn't respond, Rose turned around to resume walking to my car.
Shaking his head a little, Michael again ran after her and caught her wrist this time.
Immediately, she turned around to fight and tried to twist his hands in return but he was fast in his deal. He took hold of both of her wrists, gently twisting them around and when she raised her leg to kick him, he dodged it smoothly.
After minutes of struggle, Rose looked annoyed at Michael, gritting her teeth and glaring at him hotly while he took his time, staring at her angry face, still clutching her hands tightly in his grip.
For a minute, I thought Rose was also lost in a moment by the way she stopped struggling to look at him, blinking once and twice, her hands now gripping his fingers lightly, while there still lay a respectable distance between them.
But my doubts were solved quickly when out of nowhere, Rose raised her other leg and kicked Michael hard on his knees. Michael staggered back in pain, staring at her in confusion
"Don't touch me!" Rose yelled, suddenly feeling disgusted by his touch and started to dust her wrists and arms frantically.
"But Rose I was-"
"Rose!?" Rose took a deep breath to calm her nerves.
"Rose... Mam!?" Michael stuttered while I just wondered, staring at my Rose that how the hell did she change so much in these past years!?
When and why did she become so hostile!?
She was so fragile as a flower but at the same time, so friendly and caring towards the people she loved and cared!
Didn't she think of me as a friend anymore, I am ready to listen to anything she had to tell me about her!
What happened in those years while she was in New York!?
And now that I think about it, I didn't actually know anything about Rose!
And you call her your friend right? Some great friend you are! My inner self lectured me.
"Let me take you wherever-"
Rose raised her hand,"No! I'll go by myself!"
"But... But you don't even know how to drive!"
"I know how to drive Ok! Do you think I am capable of shooting at you but I can't drive some stupid car!?"
"You didn't shoot me-"
Quickly, Rose pulled out her gun and pointed at Michael in a swift motion, raising her eyebrows,"Then, should I do it now!?"
Michael gaped at her, wide eyed but his eyes showed a clear emotion of hurt and betrayal.
Pressing my lips in a thin line, I ran towards her, trying to stop her.
"Rose! Stop! He was just trying to help you, dear!"
"You stay out of this, Emily! He, this insolent peace of crap dared to touch me! Me!? Wait a second and I'll end this little animosity between us right here, right now! Then we can all rest and live in peace!"
Rest in peace? Or Live in peace?!
Would she kill him or let him live!?
"What the hell is wrong with you, Rose!? What had happened to you!?"
In haste, I threw my arms around her and hugged her tightly, emgulfing her in my bosom.
"I want my old Rose back! I miss her so much!" I whispered while hugging her firmly.
Rose put her gun down, raising her hands to touch me and just when I thought she was going to hug me back, her arms gripped my shoulders and pushed me away, gently though.
"I don't know what you are talking about! I'm going now and don't you dare to come after me!" She warned Michael before starting her car and driving furiously to only Rose knows where!
I stood still for a moment, still contemplating what to say to our inncoennt bodyguard when I saw him runing his smooth fingers in his hair, in frustration, before he kicked a pebble on the grass.
"Michael, Listen, you must know Rose was never like this before-"
"I know. I know everything! It would be a great favour to me if you can tell Sir that I won't be available tonight!Now if you must excuse me!"
Without waiting for my reply, Michael ran fast, opened the door of his own car, plopping under it quickly and started the car to go straight into the direction of Rose's car while I just stared at his car disappearing in between the streets.
So how was the chapter?
Is it okay? Good? Bad?
