Episode 21
Cindy’s heart thumped at the sight of the pistol John set on her head, her mouth glued together as she tried to recover herself from the shock, she couldn’t hear John words clearly and after three minutes John yelled at her to answer his question but Cindy gulped down her saliva and asked what question John is talking about amidst tears,
John scoffed and screamed at her “I gave you five minutes to answer my question and four minutes is gone alre-ady still you can’t answer me?” he paused and continued when Cindy is not talking “I said be mine or you die,choose between those two or I’ll shoot you in the next one minute that remains”
“John, plea-se……. plea-se John”she paused and gulped “I…… I….. ” she stammered
“answer me now before the count of three” John yelled at her “one two…… ”
He was cut short as the door was flung opened and someone entered breathing heavily to the extent that it could be heard in the small room, John and Cindy’s head swung to the direction and here is Charles standing like a soldier obviously furious as he clenched his fist and scowled, Cindy was half happy half surprise while John was half surprise and half bitter and furious,
“what the hell did you think you are doing here and how did you get here?” John asked walking a little bit to Charles
“you should let her go” Charles snorted skipping the question
“oh! Really? And do you think I’ll do that?” he scoffed
“are you crazy John? Do you think what you’re doing is right? It’s s-en-seless so you should and you must let the innocent girl go” he retorted moving closer to John
“I don’t think you’re afraid of this” John replied swinging the pistol with his f!nger
“and are you really going to use that?” Charles asked moving more closer
“OH! Shouldn’t I?, I think we should do it as man to man then” he stuffed the pistol in his trou-ser re-ady to fight “I’ve been always prepared and re-ady for this, especially with you” he scoffed posturing his fist before his face
“is that the only thing that can make you re-lease her?” Charles asked
“I don’t know but I think you should care for your life at this juncture” John sm-irked and move nearer to Charles ,without hesitation and acting to the enraged stimulus in him he fisted Charles at his mouth which made Charles let out a cry as he hold his bloody mouth with his palm in anger staring at John with hatred while John was busy sm-irking, suddenly he let out a scream, lifting his fist and the Fist fight started,
Never in Charles’ life or at his adulthood have he enter into fight with anyb©dy, he might be an arrogant type but he doesn’t have best friend nor friends not to talk of fighting with them, he’s a quiet person although sometimes talk when it’s necessary, while John is an ex-convict, a notorious thief and gangster who had got involved in various street fight before he was being transformed, Charles manage to strike John’s nose with his fist using all the strength in him and the nose started bleeding, with this John got more furious and overpowered Charles as he pu-ll-ed him to the ground and continued striking his face with his fist,
“St©p!!!” Cindy let out a cry as she couldn’t watch the scene going on again, she’d use the privilege she had to loose the rope that have been used to tie her down when they were fighting,
John stood up, t©uçhed his nose and stare at the bloody hand, still blinded by the anger in him, he stuffed his hand into his trou-ser and brou-ght out the pistol he had kept earlier, he pointed it at Charles who’s alre-ady lying on the ground exhausted and oblivious of what’s going on, he pu-ll-ed the trigger and fired it,
Immediately, he noticed Cindy had left the place he’d tied her to and she’s now on Charles, he bec@m£ stunned and the gun dropped from his hand, as he was about pu-lling the trigger Cindy had left the seat and mount on Charles thereby receiving the trigger,
He realized he had sh0t Cindy instead of Charles or no, Cindy had took the bullet for Charles ……..
