(Kind, crazy & cold-hearted)
Kim nana (Crazy)
“plea-se doctor; how’s my brother?” Nari asked as we both stood with the doctor in the room where Jeremy was slee-ping
“He’s fine, Miss. You don’t nee-d to panic. The bullet was taken out successfully and in a few hours, he should be awake” the doctor replied, ma-king me feel a little relieved.
Gosh! I swear I’m going to kill that Josh of a guy. I’ll kill him.
“I’ll be in my office in case you nee-d anything” he further said.
“Thank you so much, doctor” Nari squealed and he nodded and left.
“Oh my God!” Nari sighed and went to sit in front of the be-d.
“I can’t believe this happened to Jeremy. What did he do to deserve this? I just hope he comes out of this, Kim.
“His parents took an early flight to Europe for a wedding [email protected] But I just told them about it and his mom is alre-ady looking for the fastest way to come back here” she rushed her words, but I didn’t say anything.
Shortly, someone rushed in and it was Nathalie.
Huh? So, someone like her is still alive? And what’s she doing here?
“Jeremy!” She called the moment she stepped in and saw him on the be-d.
“Oh my God! Nari, what happened to him?”
“What’re you doing here?”. I cut her off and she glared at me.
“plea-se, I didn’t come here for you. So, I’d suggest you move out of my way” she said and tried walking pas-s me, but I held her back by the hair.
“Ouch! Let me go” she yelped.
“The last time I checked, Jeremy wanted you to stay away from him. So, I’d suggest you do same right now” I growled into her face and pushed her to the door.
“Nari” she [email protected]
“Are you really going to sit there and watch her do this to me?”
Nari just sat and watched helplessly.
“Well, what do you want her to do?” I asked.
“You should be ashamed of yourself – running after a guy who’s re-ady to spit in your face”.
“I hate you, bit-ch. You’ll pay for this” she cried and ran away.
“Okay ma’am. We promise to carry out a proper investigation and get back to you” the police officer said hopefully as I rounded up my statement
“plea-se doctor, do everything you can to find my daughter. I can’t lose her” Gabriel enthused.
“You don’t have to worry, sir. We’ll be sure to bring goodnews to you and your wife” the officer said and my eyes beamed
“I’m not his wife” I replied sharply.
“Huh? But I thought your daughter was the one missing?”
“Yes, but that doesn’t make me his wife” I glared at Gabriel and they officer shrugged after giving us a cranky look.
“Anyway, like I said, we’ll start our investigations immediately and get back to you”. He said.
“Thank you, officer” Gabriel said and afterwards, I started walking out of the station, leaving Gabriel behind.
I got out to the roadside and waited for a cab. I nee-ded to meet nana at the hospital. I just hope the Jeremy guy Is okay.
The road was kind of deserted and getting a cab seemed really difficult. Oh God! The sun was burning.
Shortly, a car pu-ll-ed over.
What the hell does he want?
I rolled my eyes and placed my hand on my [email protected]!st as he lowered his glas-ses.
“Ha-nuel. Come on; I’ll give you a ride to the hospital” he said from the car.
“I don’t nee-d your ride, Gabriel. You can go ahead” I said brusquely and walked a few steps away, but he followed me.
“Ha-nuel, plea-se. This isn’t about our dispute. We nee-d to be fast in getting to the hospital just in case there’s any news. Think about the kids” .
“Don’t you dare talk about my kids, Gabriel. They’re mine,okay?” I snapped at him.
“Fine; I’m not dragging that with you. But just get into the car ,at least. It’s dangerous alone out here’ he said and I huffed and looked around.
He was right. The road was really deserted. And considering the sun and time…
I exhaled de-eply and opened the door, going into the car.
“Thank you..”, he said but I maintained a straight face and looked throu-gh the window.
Then, he continued driving.
“Don’t worry, Mi cha will be fine” he said along the way, but I still maintained a straight face.
And for a while, the drive was silent
“Ha-nuel” he finally broke the silence.
As usual, I still didn’t turn to look at him.
“Ha-nuel, I…I want you to know I’m de-eply sorry for hurting your feelings in the past. I’m sorry for breaking our family [email protected] The truth is, I was only being deceived by Rebecca. She tore me [email protected] and made me act silly.
“plea-se Ha-nuel. Now, ive gotten to realize I was the biggest fool for ever letting you go. Think about our children – think about the joy they’d derive in having a complete family. plea-se Ha-nuel, just find a place in your heart to forgive me”.
I scoffed and bit my l!pas he rounded up his sermon.
It sounded funny.
“Are you for real?” I looked at him and asked.
“Like…are you joking or you’re really being serious? Hold on; what exactly are you expecting? Are you expecting me to jump into your arms and say *yes! I forgive you*. Is that really what you’re expecting, Gabriel? You left me for nineteen years! Nineteen years, Gabriel – we’ve been [email protected] You didn’t care about me; you never asked after me.
” And now, when you suddenly discover your beloved wife is a liar and a murderer, you come back to me and say some trash about forgiveness and reconciliation. Really, Gabriel? Do you take me for a fool?”
His eyes drooped and I noticed his hands shook on the sterling.
I sniffed and itched my head.
“plea-se, I’d really appreciate it if you don’t say any other word till we get to the hospital” I told him and throu-ghout the rest of the drive, he never made a single comment.
Kim nana (Crazy)
Aigo! I really nee-d some fresh air. Cause I’m scared I might run mad.
I left the room and went out to the pas-sage to get some air and just then, as if she’s been waiting for me to show up, Kim ji [email protected]£ running to me.
“Nana! Nana!” She called hastily, [email protected] heavily.
She had Mi-cha’s phone with her.
“Hey; what is it?” I asked, startled.
She looked like someone being chased.
“Mi cha…Mi cha’s phone is ringing. And…the caller’s Josh” she said in de-ep breaths as she showed the ringing phone to me
My eyes wi-de-ned in shock
What? Josh was calling?
Without hesitation, I picked it up.
Mi cha (Cold-hearted)
I woke up next to Josh on the be-d, feeling so much pains between my legs.
I sat up and took my clothes from the floor, putting them on. Josh was still fast asleep.
I buried my face in my palm and plainted.
I felt ruined; damned.
How do I get out of this? Will I really be stuck with Josh for the rest of my life? How do I get rid of him?
I sighed and looked around pathetically.
Suddenly, my eyes ran into his phone on the table.
Oh, my! An idea niggled at me instantly.
I looked at him on the be-d and confirmed he was still fast asleep. Then, I stood up and rushed to the table, taking the phone and going to the toilet afterwards.
I closed the door and dialed my line with the phone.
plea-se, plea-se, plea-se. Pick up – anyone.
I panicked as it was about ringing to an end and just at the last beep, someone picked up
☎Hello?” I called anxiously, trying to control the sound of my voice.
☎H-hello?” The receiver also called.
It sounded like nana.
☎Nana; is that you?” I asked hopefully.
☎Mi cha?” She called, sounding shocked.
“Is that you?”
“Yes. It’s me, nana. plea-se, listen carefully. I don’t have much time. This is my location – 16 Hallway express. Its a deserted area and the only building you’ll find around here. plea-se, tell the police about this immediately. And don’t try calling back with this line.” I rushed my words, my heart racing so fast.
“O…Okay; But…Okay, Don’t worry. I’ll alert the police right away”. She floun-dered.
“Nana” I called.
“plea-se, hurry up” I added and dropped the call.
Oh God! plea-se, let this work out.
“Mi cha?” I heard Josh call from the room and my heart skipped.
Oh my God!!
Mi cha (Cold-hearted)
“Mi cha?” I heard Josh call from the room and my heart skipped.
Oh, my God!!
My eyes felt like they wanted to pop out any second as I looked at the phone in my hand
Oh my God!
“Mi cha?” He called again and immediately, I deleted the number from the call record and sli-pped the phone into my pocket.
“Just a minute” I said with a nervous gulp.
Then, I took in a de-ep breath and left the toilet, returning to the room.
He was bu-ttoning his shi-t when I entered.
“Sorry, I was…ma-king use of the toilet” I told him and he nodded and took the hair brush, going to brush his hair in front of the mirror.
Casually, I sauntered to the table and brou-ght out the phone from my pocket. I glanced at him to be sure he wasn’t looking and carefully, I placed the phone back on the table.
Immediately, he turned to look at me and for a moment, I was scared, thinking he had seen me.
He [email protected]£ to where I was and held my hand.
“Hey” he called tenderly.
“How’re you feeling?”
I was tem-pted to scoff, but restricted myself.
I just took my gaze to the floor and he t©uçhed myl-ips – the cut on myl-ips.
“I’m sorry for hurting you. Believe me, Mi cha, I feel terrible each time I [email protected] hands on you. I hate myself for it. But the problem is, you leave me no choice.
“plea-se Mi cha, don’t ever try to leave me. I’m your family. You’re safe here with me, right?”
“Safe with a cut on myl-ips and a burn on my n£¢k, huh?” I was tem-pted to ask, but again, restricted myself.
Then, he let go of my hands and held my cheeks instead.
“Do you forgive me” he asked and I looked up at him.
“Yes” I said perfunctorily and he smiled and planted a k!sson my forehead.
“I love you, okay?” He said and I just f0rç£d a smile and nodded.
Thank goodness he didn’t f0rç£ me to say it back. And taking his phone from the table, he left the room.
Kim nana (Crazy)
“Oh my! What do we do? How do we get to the police? We nee-d to contact them immediately” Kim ji rushed her words while I also thought of what to do
“Come on” I beckoned on her and was about running away when mum and dad entered.
Hah! Thank goodness.
“Nana?” Mum called, probably surprised at how restless I looked.
“Perfect timing, mum. Dad, Mi cha just called. She made use of Josh’s phone and called throu-gh her phone here with us. And she’s given us her location. She wants us to alert the police as soon as possible” I said and mum’s eyes beamed.
“What?” Dad exclaimed.
“Wh…What’s the address?”
“She said its on 16 Hallway Express. She said it’s a deserted area and the only building we’ll find around there. plea-se mum, she wanted us to hurry” I replied quic-kly.
Dad had alre-ady brou-ght out his phone and was typing in the details.
“Oh my God!” Mum [email protected] and covered her mouth with her palm.
“Okay; this is great, girls. I’ve alre-ady texted everything to the deputy and they should probably be on their way alre-ady. But I’m still going myself…”
“I’ll come with you” mum ch!pped in
“Ha-nuel, I don’t think its safe for you to…”
“I’m coming, Gabriel. And that’s final” mom said sternly and dad sighed.
“Okay; fine. We don’t have much time to argue. Girls, make sure stay here til we get back, okay?”
“Okay, dad” Kim ji was the one who replied and he scurried off with mum.
“Oh! Nana, I’m so scared” Kim ji shuddered with fear.
Well, I was as scared as hell, but just trying not to show it.
I ran my f!ngersinto my hair and grunted. I really hope Mi cha’s safe.
Just then, Nari [email protected]£ running to me.
“Nana! Nana!” She called, overjoyed.
“Jeremy – he’s awake” she said and my eyes beamed.
I [email protected] in shock and ran with her to the room and there I found him awake on the be-d.
Oh my! He’s really awake!!
“Jeremy!” I called in a doubtful tune and all he did was stare.
He seemed weak.
“Oh my God! You’re awake!” I laughed and ran to hvg him.
Mi cha (Cold-hearted)
I la-id anxiously on the be-d, trying to fake a sleep.
I was so nervous as my heart raced pretty fast. I felt scared.
Was nana able to get the information to the police? And could they be on their way here alre-ady? What if something goes wrong?
And if the police succeeds and takes down this institute, they’re definitely going to know I was one of them. I’ve done terrible things alre-ady. And now I’m scared I might have to pay for them.
In less than 5 minutes, it started. The gunsh0ts – I started hearing them.
I sprang out of be-d and ran to the window to have a look and my eyes beamed. Oh my God!!
They did it! The police were here! And they were having a gunfight with the boys.
I held onto the window glas-ses and watched curiously. What do I do now? I know the door must be locked.
Just when I was about leaving the window, the door opened wildly and Josh ran in. His eyes were fierce and he st©pped and looked at me.
“It was you” he muttered
“You brou-ght them here. It was you”.
I flin-ched as he [email protected]£ to me and gave me a [email protected] [email protected]
Oh; damn it!
“I don’t know what you’re talking about” I tried to defend myself but he [email protected] me [email protected] again, ma-king me fall on the be-d.
“You bit-ch!” He snarled.
“I didn’t do it!!”
Immediately, he brou-ght out a pocket knife and stabbe-d me in the leg with it.
Oh my God!!
“Arghhhhh” I screamed as he drilled the knife into my leg, ma-king blood ooze out.
“Josh! No!!” I yelped and he brou-ght out the knife and threw it away.
I whimpered in excruciating pains.
He took hold of his gun and dragged me up by the hair.
“You really think you can run from me, right?” He growled as he held me r0ûghly by the hair.
My leg was hurting and bleeding like hell.
“No, plea-se. I’m sorry” I winced and he made me to back him, then placed the gun on my head.
“Move” he snarled into my ear and started pushing me forward, still holding my hair and pointing the gun at me.
I kept crying cause of the pains on my legs and found it difficult walking, but he kept pushing me and I had no choice.
We got out of the room and the whole place was a mess – all the agents running around with guns and weapons.
“They’re taking over the building!!” some of them screamed.
Josh kept moving with me and took me down the stairs. What does he want to do? Does he really want to use me as a bait?
I kept whimpering as he took me down to the sitting room and headed for the exit.
“Josh plea-se; you can st©p this” I tried convincing him.
“Shut thefu-ck up, Mi cha” he said angrily and continued moving with me.
We finally pas-sed the exit and got out to the open space and I flin-ched at the sight of the gun fight going on. Bullets were flying all over.
But the police seized fire as soon they saw me.
“If anyone re-leases fire, I’ll b!ow off her [email protected]” Josh said at the t©p of his voice, loud enough for them to hear him.
He was still holding me and pointing the gun to my head.
“Josh…” I called with a quiver as he started moving with me towards a car.
The police and the agents st©pped shooting.
Oh God! He’s going to get away with me.
He kept moving with me until we got to the car and he opened the front door and pushed me in, ma-king my leg hurt the more.
Then, he went in throu-gh the same door so we wouldn’t be [email protected] and he took the driver’s seat while I sat beside him.
He kept the gun in front of him and started the car, taking off immediately.
My heart beat even fas-ter as the thought dawned on me. He was going to escape!!
He drove out throu-gh the gate and the police couldn’t do anything about it. And we set out on the road.
My leg was hurting so terribly and driving me crazy. I was losing a lot of blood. I know he stabbe-d me so I’ll be weak I won’t be able to fight back.
He continued driving on a high speed and I looked behind and noticed some police cars following us.
Oh ! Thank goodness
But they won’t be able to meet up with him. And even if they do, he’s just going to use me as a bait again
I looked at him and he seemed so angry. I couldn’t afford living with someone like him again.
If he succeeds in getting away with me, I’ll be doomed. What’s going to happen?
He’s made me pas-s throu-gh enough pains alre-ady and I can’t afford to pas-s throu-gh anymore.
I sniffed and looked at the gun in front of him. For the first time in my life, I was going to do something this crazy. For the first time, I was going to fight against Josh.
Immediately, I nabbe-d the gun and c0cked it.
His eyes wi-de-ned in shock.
“Mi cha; what’re you…”
“Before he could finish up his statement, I pointed the gun at his leg and sh0t him twice.
“Argh!” He grunted in pains and lost focus on the road.
Then, I took hold of the sterling and started dragging it with him and we ended up crashing.
Oh my God!!
It wasn’t terrible. We had ran into a tree but I sustained a cut on my head.
Josh also injured his head as a result of hitting it and immediately, I sh0t him again on the arm.
“Mi cha!!” He yelled my name in pains and without hesitation, I opened the door and stepped out of the car.
I couldn’t walk properly and I ended up falling on the floor. Thank goodness the police arrived just in time and I started crawling towards them before Josh would leave the car – which I doubt because he was badly injured.
I kept crawling painfully and all the armed policemen rushed out of their cars and [email protected]£ to me.
☎Help her up!
☎Help her up!
☎Check the car!!
I heard them say all over.
Few of them that [email protected]£ to me helped me up and when I looked, I saw my and dad running towards me.
“Oh my God!! Kim jin!!” Mum called agaped and I fell into her hands.
“Mum…” I wept on her che-st.
I felt so scared
“Oh, my baby!! Come here. You’re safe now” she also said with tears dripping down her cheeks.
I didn’t even want to turn to look at Josh and the police.
“Mum…” I whimpered again.
plea-se, tell me all this is over.
