COLD AND BLANK.
By Queen Mary
(The bit-ch is his wife)
Xander lifts Crystal up the couch and carries her to the room.
He drops her gently on the be-d and turns to leave. A text message from his wife pops on his phone.
BABY WE nee-d TO TALK NOW.
He scoffed and di-pped his phone back in his pocket.
“Why did she mention Stella name, I nee-d to ask her why she’s hurt. I nee-d to know everything about her” Xander said and walked out of her room.
He dozed off on the couch, dreaming about the beautiful lady with hazel eyes.
Stella paced around the living room looking at the picture Carlos s£nt to her.
“Who’s this bit-ch, first she bu-mped into me and now she’s with my husband shopping. If I catch her I’ll make sure I kill her” Stella said.
She thought about the strange lady, she was sure she had met her before but couldn’t figure out where.
Maybe she’s a model or a secret p©rnstar just like her.
She couldn’t figure out where she met this lady before but she was sure going to make her life miserable.
Crystal stretched her b©dy and yawned, she stood up and looked at her hand.
“Am sorry” She apologized to her b©dy for hurting it.
She looked out the window and saw Xander jogging outside.
She t©uçhed her forehead and ru-bbe-d it to ease the throbbing headache.
She enters the bathroom and takes a quic-k shower then gets dressed and walked out to the living room.
Jimmy looks at her confused, yesterday she was so miserable but today it was like nothing happened.
“What’s for breakfast” Loretta asked smiling.
“I made pasta with chicken sauce” He said and walked to the kitchen.
Crystal smiled and watched him leave.
“You’re awake” Xander asked.
“Yes” Crystal replied and took a glas-s of water.
“Here’s breakfast” Jimmy said and gave her a plate of pasta.
“Loretta we nee-d to talk” Xander said.
“Erm I’ll be leaving now” Jimmy said and walked away.
“I don’t think I wanna talk, I’ll go finish this in my room” Crystal said and turned to leave but Xander snatches the bowl of pasta from her and drops it on the table.
“I said I wanna talk to you” He said again with a more fiery tone.
“Fine, since you don’t want me to eat I’ll go sleep” Crystal said and turned to leave but this time Xander pu-ll-ed her back pinning her to the wall besides them.
His hands on her shoulders, both so close and for a while Xander lost himself in her hazel eyes.
“If you think that you are stubborn then you haven’t met me” Xander said codly.
Crystal frowned at him, he really was stubborn.
“Let go of me” Crystal said trying to move away but he was strong, even stronger than her.
“Why should I??, are you scared I’ll k!ssyou s-en-seless then make you fall in love with me” He tea-sed, Crystal eyes wi-de-ned in anger but the anger only made Xander sm-irk.
“You you you” Crystal tried insulting him but nothing c@m£ out, she knew she was lost alre-ady. No man had controlled her this way before not even Carlos.
“You wanna talk right, fine re-lease me let’s talk” She said.
“Nope we’ll talk like this woman. You are very unpredictable and stubborn, I can’t let you go and don’t worry. I won’t k!ssyou , I have a wife” He said and laughed,
you would think he actually loves his wife.
“Fine talk” She said.
“Who’s Stella Jace to you” He asked..
“Nob©dy” Crystal replied sharply.
“Nope I don’t believe you, who’s Carlos” He asked again.
“I said nob©dy” Crystal lies again.
“Okay, I’ll let you go now but that doesn’t means I believe you, I’ll find out what Stella Jace who bears the same name as my wife did to you” He said and left her.
“Stella Jace is your wife name” Crystal asked walking closer to Xander.
“A minute ago you were yelling for me to leave you and now you are coming closer to me, just like I said you’re so unpredictable” He said.
Crystal frowned at him again and he just laughed.
“Seriously you’re so cute when you frown” He said and looked at her hands.
“How’s your hand now” He asked “Hurts like hell” She lied.
“Probably wanna go to the hospital”
“Nope, just wanna eat” She said.
“Okay I nee-d to check home” He said and searched his pockets from his phone.
“Where did I put my phone” He said.
“I think it’s un-der the table” Crystal said and threw the phone un-der the table.
“Thanks” He said and took the phone un-der the table. He waved her goodbye and left.
He had forgotten the phone in her room and Crystal being a professional hacker did her job on his phone.
“Don’t hurt yourself okay, you nee-d to be wra-pped in a bubble” He joked and finally left
“I don’t know which one is more sweeter, my mood right now or this pasta” Crystal said to herself as she scribbled down Stella’s number on a piece of paper.
“Oh no revenge is going to be the sweetest. Who knew little Miss Slutty was actually Xander’s wife, now this mission is going to be more fun” She said and laughed.
FLASHBACK TO 5 YEARS AGO
Crystal woke up weak, especially in her pri-vate p@rt, what happened earlier was the most painful thing that could ever happen. Even miscarriages where better than this painful ab-ortion she went throu-gh.
She got up ignoring the serious pains and cleaned up wore a Sk-irt and blouse then walked down the stairs.
She sat on the couch and began to doze off again, there was a knock on the door but she felt too weak to open.
The door opened and someone c@m£ in, a man walked in.
Crystal tried to keep her eyes open but it was so difficult to.
“HEY WHERE’S YOUR MOM, I PAID HER FOR THIS NIGHT BUT SHE REFUSED PICK NY CALLS”
“HEY AM TALKING TO YOU”
“FINE IF YOU DON’T ANSWER ME, YOU’LL PAY FOR YOUR MOTHER”
Those words brou-ght Crystal back to earth, she sprung to her feet and looked at the big man who pushed her back the chair and starts to do his belt.
Forcing himself on her weak b©dy, Crystal took the vase besides her and smashed it on his head.
She pushed him off her b©dy and starts to run, the big guy was still conscious but weak. He chased after Crystal, outside the house and inside the woods.
The man caught up to her and there was nowhere to run for Crystal again, she was a little bit far from home.
“plea-se don’t” Crystal begged. The man sm-irked and pushed her on the we-t floor.
Crystal knew she couldn’t fight, she was just going to let fate have its way.
BOOM, a gun short was heard and the man fell to the ground.
“Are you okay” The lady asked.
She looked beautiful and had perfect curves like a model, with fulll-ips. She was everything Crystal would wanna be.
“Thanks” Crystal said weakly and pas-sed out.
“Doctor how’s she” Dina asked looking at the young lady on the hospital be-d. Dina is 2 years older than her, Dina had been an as-sas-sin since she was 18 years, she saved Crystal from being R@p£d and brou-ght her to the hospital
“Well after some tests we found out that she had un-dergone a very risky ab-ortion method, it could have killed her if you didn’t bring her to the hospital, we were able to save her life but her wo-mb had been damaged so badly, having children might be really impossible for her due to her damaged wo-mb” The doctor said.
“But she would be okay right, she would survive ”
“Sure of course” The doctor said.
END OF FLASHBACK
Stella attacks Xander immediately she saw him.
“How dare you” She screamed at him.
“Am tired Stella plea-se don’t disturb me”
“Oh so you are tired, you’ve finished fv¢king that bit-ch and now you are tired”
“What are you talking about ” He asked surprised.
“Oh don’t pretend, your secret is out. Now everyone knows you’re a wom-anizer, you are a man who-re Xander. I hate you” She yelled.
“Don’t you forget Stella, don’t you forget that I only married you because that was my mother’s last wish, don’t act like you don’t know I don’t love you. One paper brou-ght us together, one paper can separate us” He said and left her.
“Aaaaaaargh” Stella screamed and sat on the couch.
She looked up codly and clenched her fists.
“I’ll get rid of anyone that tries to ruin my plan. Nob©dy would spoil my plan now” Stella said and I stood up then called Carlos.
“I know that his stupid bestfriend must know about her. He tells the idiot everything, I’ll go to his house now and f0rç£ him to tell me about her” Stella said and walked to her car, then drove to Jimmy’s house.
Jimmy runs inside the house after his morning run, he sees Crystal watching movie and eating pasta.
“Hey” He says breathing ha-rd .
“Hi” Crystal replied not looking at him.
“So Xander left alre-ady, I didn’t see him leave” Jimmy said and sat beside Crystal.
“Yeah he left a while ago, so before I forget how was your d@t£” Crystal asked and he laughed.
“What’s funny” She asked.
“My d@t£ was” He replied laughing less
“Okay look, it was a blind d@t£. I didn’t know the person I was going to meet. I went to the restaurant met this beautiful lady at the table I ordered, I thought she was my d@t£ instantly but she wasn’t. She was as beautiful as strong, she almost broke my arm, then the manager said that it wasn’t her table and he was the one who made the mistake. He apologized and gave her her own table, I b!owed k!sses at her and she really got mad. She almost broke my hand again. So she left after looking in her phone then my real d@t£ c@m£. Turned out my real d@t£ was a 65 years old woman” Jimmy said and Crystal laughed.
“Hey don’t laugh, it’s not funny” Jimmy said getting offended.
“But you said it was funny and you laughed so why shouldn’t I laugh”
“Just forget it, all I nee-d right now is to find that beautiful maiden, ever since I saw her I haven’t been the same. I couldn’t even get her beautiful face off my head so I drew her”
“You can draw??, you are so talented”
“Of course I draw but not like Xander, the guy is fv¢king good”
“Well he’s an agent, he’s supposed to know how to draw, so can I see the girl’s picture” Crystal said.
“Yeah yeah, it’s in my room” Jimmy said and ran upstairs.
The door bell rings and Crystal walks to open the door, behold the evil witch was standing in front of her. Crystal sm-irked but the sm-irk disappeared to a cold glare. If looks could kill, Stella would be 6 ft un-der now.
“You, it’s a good thing I met you here. So this is where you and my husband fv¢k right. You prostitute” She yelled at Crystal.
Crystal clenched her fists and fought the urge to destroy Stella’s plastic surgery face.
“plea-se I don’t know what you are talking about” Crystal asked pretending to be lost which made Stella more annoyed especially what Crystal wanted.
“You don’t know what am talking about, you don’t know what am talking about. You you bi__” She attacks Crystal by sl@pping her.
Crystal smiles and bites herl-ips then brushes her head back, the sl@p had no effect on her and it upsets Stella more.
“plea-se don’t sl@p me again if you don’t wanna die young” Crystal threatened and Stella felt scared but she didn’t show it, instead she pushes Crystal to the ground with more f0rç£.
“How dare you speak back at me” Stella snapped at Crystal.
Crystal looked at her arm, there was a cut on it alre-ady because of the push.
“bit-ch” Crystal muttered un-der her breath and prepared to attack her.
“What’s going on here” Jimmy asked and saw Crystal on the floor.
“Loretta” He said and ran down.
“Ouch” Crystal cried and t©uçhed her bleeding arm.
Stella was shocked at the way her face changed immediately, she was even shedding tears alre-ady.
“Stella what have you done, look now she’s bleeding” Jimmy said.
“I don’t care if she’s bleeding, if she ever comes near my husband again I’ll make sure she bleeds to death” Stella said and left angrily.
“Loretta are you okay. Come in” He said.
“Am sorry Loretta, this is all my fault, I should have told you about the witch my bestfriend married” He said and wiped her blood away, then treated it.
“You know am sure if Xander met you first, he would have married you” Jimmy said and Crystal chuckled, she knew he was just joking.
“You know your skin is really delicate, you should take care of it very well” He adviced.
“Thanks” Crystal said and looked at the drawing Jimmy brou-ght down.
“This” She said holding the drawing.
“Yes that’s the woman who caught my heart”
“Dina” Crystal said surprised.
“You know her” Jimmy asked.
“No I don’t”
“But you just said Dina”
“I meant Dinner, I mean you went there to have dinner too right”
“Yes” Jimmy said, Crystal keeps on looking at the picture.
Xander greets the officers in the FBI quarters and walks inside the meeting.
“Let’s leave the case of the as-sas-sin aside now. There’s a new case on board ” Xander said.
“Which case is that sir” Kate asked.
“Frederick show them the pictures plea-se” He asked the technician. Everyone looks at the screen and a man appears on the screen.
“This is Don Douglas, a very rich and dangerous man. He’s behind the death of 16 policemen, 2 women included. He’s also the one who blew up the central hospital just because his wife died while giving birth to twins in the hospital 26 years ago. Police dre-ad him so they left his case alone”
“Sir this guy is very dangerous, why don’t we leave him for people older and more experienced than us”
“Exactly my thought too, but this man has reigned evilly now for more than 30 years, he thinks he’s unst©ppable but I’ll change that. His twins are celebr@ting their 26th birthday next tomorrow and I’ll be attending the birthday, but I’ll nee-d a female to come with me” Xander said. Nob©dy replies him.
“I know you guys are scared but we are not going there to arrest or work as officers for the law. We just nee-d to go close his children, s£dûç£them, get them drun!kand try to collect the secret code from them”
“Secret code??” Kate asked.
“Yes, the secret code is the code that opens the door to the father’s secret hideout, once we know the secret code we can attack him unexpectedly and get him behind bars immediately, so who would be my female” He asked but none of the females replied, they all looked away including Kate.
Immediately Crystal was sure that Jimmy had left, she brou-ght out her phone and called Dina.
“Heyyy bit-chhhh” Dina said excitedly from the line.
“Don’t Heyyy bit-chhhh me, did you go out on a d@t£ yesterday”
“Okay did you go to any restaurant yesterday”
“Yep, you know I forgot to tell you Todd and I broke up ”
“Thanks hon, so what’s the issue”
“The guy you met at the restaurant”
“The annoying bastard, Is that why you called”
“Well that annoying bastard is Xander’s friend and guess what he has fallen in love with you alre-ady”
“It’s not new” Dina said and laughed
“It’s not funny Dina, don’t you know it can ruin the mission ”
“Yeah you are right, so what do you want me to do”
“Just avoid him and you better change your name whenever you are out”
Xander drives home angrily, he was annoyed at the fact that no female would help him and Jimmy called him some minutes ago that Stella had come to attack Loretta.
He sped home and immediately he c@m£ out of the car, he stormed inside.
“Baby you are back” Stella said smiling, she saw the looks on Xander’s face and she knew she was in trouble alre-ady.
“Baby I can…”
Xander looked at her but didn’t say anything, he just walked up to their be-droom and brou-ght out some files, Stella saw that it was a divorce paper.
She bec@m£ scared instantly.
“Look Xander I can explain, I was upset that’s why…”
“Just one more mistake Stella, just one more mistake I nee-d you to make and both of us are going to court. Have made this paper the very day we got married because I know we can never last. You will apologize to Loretta and write a statement that you would never as-sault her again”
“I would rather die” Stella said and turned to walk out but Xander held her back.
“Xander you are hurting me” She said trying to break free.
“t©uçh her again and you would beg for death” He said and dropped her hands then walked out.
Stella looked at him surprised, he was so protective of this Loretta bit-ch.
Crystal feeling bored puts on the music and starts to dance to the slow rhythm.
Dancing and singing was another thing she loved doing whenever she was down, she was so lost in moving her b©dy she didn’t know that Xander had walked in.
Xander watched her as she moved her w@!st dangerously, he was a goner looking at the killer b©dy. His b©dy starts to move to her, Crystal bu-mped into him and smiled embarras-singly.
“I’ll turn off the music now” She said and turned, Xander holds her back and pu-lls her closer to him.
He sli-ps his hand around her w@!st and pu-lls her even more closer.
“Can I have this dance, your highness” He said and Crystal laughed.
She actually laughed sincerely.
“Yes” She said and both start to move in the same rhythm.
Xander smiles as both danced together, he had never been this happy with a woman before.
Then it cli-cked to him, Crystal was beautiful, s£dûçt!velyh0t, smart and a good dancer.
She could help him on this mission right, but he would be risking her life. The last thing he wants is to hurt this woman who was alre-ady hurt, but then she could still help him, nob©dy would wanna hurt such a beautiful woman woman.
“Loretta I nee-d your help” He said all of a sudden and looked at Crystal.
