COLD AND BLANK.
By Queen Mary
The look on Xander’s face made Crystal realize that he was serious.
“Xander what are you doing, she just recovered from…..” She st©ps when Crystal places her hand on the shoulder.
“Thanks for saving my life Xan, but the prison won’t st©p me from killing Asher” Crystal said and stretched her hands forward for the handcuffs.
“Take her also, they’re both accomplices”
“NO!!!, don’t take her. She’s innocent, she’s just a friend. She has nothing to do with all this” Crystal protested and Xander asks them to leave Dina alone.
“Dina I’ll be going to prison now. Make sure you fry those chickens softly” Crystal said and Dina nodded un-derstanding what she meant.
Xander and Crystal entered the car without sparing a glance for each other.
The driver starts the engine and drives to the station but instead they st©pped at a warehouse and Xander gives them some amount of money.
“Make sure no one suspects a thing” Xander says
“Yes sir” One of the officers replied and they leave with the car.
“What’s going on. Do you want to kill me here and leave my dead b©dy here” Crystal asked and Xander chuckled.
“For an as-sas-sin am not surprised that’s the first thing that’ll come to your mind” Xander said.
“Sit down” He ordered.
“Why…. what’s going on”
“I want to decide whether to strangle you to death or leave you to rot in hiding” Xander said and f0rç£d her to sit down.
“I can’t believe this. How could one woman, just one woman change my life drastically. What exactly are you” Xander asked not caring for an answer.
“I want a bottle of beer, at least they’ll give me that in prison” Crystal said ma-king Xander furious.
“YOU WANT TO GO TO JAIL??, EVEN AFTER EVERYTHING YOU SAID AND DID, AM STILL BREAKING THE RULES BY NOT LETTING YOU GO TO JAIL AND YOU ARE SAYING ru-bBISH”
“Don’t yell at me okayy… I didn’t ask for your dammed help. I never nee-ded your help, I was re-ady to go to jail and find a way to escape so don’t give me that “Am your hero” sermon. Am not cut for all that”
“You manipulative witch, I feel like hitting some s-en-se into your head. I saved your life, I saved you from going to jail and this is what you can say, you….”
“I NEVER ASKED YOU FOR HELP, I DON’T nee-d IT. I NEVER ASKED YOU TO SAVE MY LIFE NOR DID I ASK YOU TO SAVE ME FROM GOING TO JAIL SO DON’T EXPECT A…..”
“SHUT UP!!, JUST SHUT UP AND St©p BEING A bit-ch”
“I am a bit-ch” Crystal said and angered Xander the more.
“That’s it” He said and pu-ll-ed her into a room then pushed her inside. He locks the door immediately.
“XANDER LET ME OUT NOW”
“That’s your jail for now”
“Xander if you don’t let me out, Asher would come for us and he’s going to hurt you, I can’t let that happen”
“That’s why am going to track him down and arrest him”
“You don’t know Asher, he’s more dangerous than I am”
“I know that’s why you’re going to be in there while I look for him and put him behind bars”
“Xander plea-se let’s work together then. You have the weapons, I have the br@ins and skills. We can work together and find him”
“I am not killing him okay”
“Fine with me” Crystal said and Xander opened the door, immediately he turns back she hits a stone on his head ma-king him lose consciousness.
“Am sorry Xander, I can’t let you risk your life. Have broken my first rule by falling in love with you. The only person that can face Asher is me and unlike you am going to make sure he dies” She says and re-moves the guns from his pocket.
She takes her cab and drives to her house, it was burning.
She knew it was Dina that was behind the burning of the house, that was what she meant by “fry the chickens”. Burning the house was the only way to burn some of the evidence the police could use against them.
“I thought you were coming to jail alre-ady” Kate said in a car and pu-ll-ed up.
Dina walked out of the mansion and looked surprised to see Crystal outside.
“Xander helped me, we have to go to the hideout at once, my favorite weapons are there. I want to have some fun” Crystal said and entered the car with Dina. Kate starts the car and drives to the secret hideout, it was only the three of them that knew about secret hideout.
Xander stands up and t©uçhes his hair, he was angry but he managed to smile. He knew that Crystal loved him and he also put a tracker on her.
“WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DIDN’T GIVE HER THE SYRINGE, NOW SHE’S GOING TO SURVIVE. I GAVE YOU JUST ONE SIMPLE JOB BUT YOU FAILED IT. PRAY I DON’T EVER SEE YOU AGAIN IF NOT” Stella yells on the phone and smashes it on the wall.
“Baby calm down. I have some good news for you, watch the news” Carlos said and she faces the TV.
Crystal’s picture displa-yed on the screen
Escaped from the police officers and has Agent Xander hostage.
“Wow…. So Crystal isn’t really what she say she is. Xander would be so heartbroken. Am sure right now he would be regretting dumping me for her” She says and sm-irks evilly.
Crystal is dressed in a black leathered cloth, looking dangerous and S-xy at the same time. She ties her hair and makes it like a doughnuts. Adds a little makeup on her face with a blackl-ipstick giving her a dangerous aura
“Cry, he’s on his way to the airport”
“He’s not going anywhere as long as I am still alive. Where are the plastic guns in case they try to scan me”
Crystal enters the airport and she gets scanned, the scanning machine makes some sound and Crystal realises Xander had put a tracker on her.
“plea-se madam step aside” The security official says. Crystal nods and walks away, she walks to the toilet to bring out her gun.
“Looking for me Princess…..” A male voice says from outside
Crystal smiles alre-ady knowing who it was.
“I knew you would come to me” She said and reached for her gun
“I wouldn’t do that if I were you, hands up where I can see them” He said but Crystal hesitated ma-king him shoot at her but it hits the mirror.
“Have you forgotten am your boss. I trained you” Asher said and Crystal raises her hand up.
“Now turn back nice and slow and look at me. Let me see your beautiful face” He ordered.
“You won’t leave this place alive Asher, I would make sure I kill you” She threatens but he just laughs ma-king him distracted for a second. Enough time for Crystal to spray some liquid soap on his eyes.
She kicks his hands and the gun drops, she attempts to take the gun but he holds her, kicks her stomach and hits her end on the mirror. A fight ensues.
KICKS, PUNCHES, HITS, BLOOD.
Crystal had the upper hand as she quic-kly gr-abs the gun and points it at him, he was on his knees alre-ady.
She wipes the blood on her mouth and laughs.
“I must say you fight really well Crystal, I thought Xander had made you soft alre-ady”
“You know you must be a fool to think he can really love you, I mean Xander is just like other guys. He lvsted for your b©dy but you mistook it for love. Foolish girl”
“SHUT THE fv¢k UP” Crystal yelled. Asher had taken a broken glas-s, he tears her leg with it immediately ma-king her scream in pain and lets go of the gun.
Now Asher was having the upper hand again
“You might be stronger than me but not smarter. I taught you everything you know. I loved you so much Crystal but you fell for that bastard. I would have pitied you and live you alone but am afraid I would have to kill you because I am scared of you. You are the most powerful woman in my business even more powerful than me, if I let you go you would create an empire and am sure you would kill me. I can’t let that happen princess, I love you but I love me more. He sets to pu-ll the trigger and boom, gunsh0t was heard.
“Are you okay” Xander asked and crosses Asher’s dead b©dy.
“Xan” Crystal cries and hvgs him.
“We have to leave here now, the police are looking for you everywhere. A helicopter is waiting for us at my mansion”
“I can’t go with you Xan”
“Don’t even start, am still upset with you for hitting a stone on my head” “So you are not angry for everything have….”
“Don’t push your luck woman” He says and pu-lls her out.
They enter a black Honda which drives them to Xander’s house.
“Don’t worry I still love you” He says and hvgs her.
Crystal looks down in the helicopter waiting for them to reach an ocean.
“XANDER HOW MUCH DO YOU HATE ME”
“SO OOOO MUCHHHHHH”
“HOW MUCH DO YOU LOVE ME ”
“YOU CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE”
“I REALLY HOPE WE MEET AGAIN XANDER, FOR NOW WE ARE JUST GOING TO ACCEPT THE FACT THAT WE ARE NOT MEANT FOR EACH OTHER. I LOVE YOU BUT I CAN’T STAY WITH YOU”
“WHAT ARE YOU SAYING, DON’T EVEN DARE” Xander says but he was too late alre-ady, she had jumped out of the helicopter alre-ady.
Xander screams and yells Crystal’s name but he couldn’t see any trace of her.
“fv¢k fv¢k fv¢k” He exclaims hitting the controls of the helicopter.
He knew Crystal was a lot of things but he never expected her to be this crazy.
Gold paces around in her living room looking at Leonard’s dead b©dy. She had killed him alre-ady and she didn’t regret it but she was scared she did it in the house instead of a place where she could easily dump his dead b©dy.
Still pacing around, Stella walks in the door. An amusing surprised smile forms on her face.
“Like mother like daughter” She says and receives a glare from Gold.
“Hey you better shut up and leave this place now” Gold ordered but Stella doesn’t move a budge.
“You know I was coming alre-ady to kill him and put the blame on your daughter but it seems like that job is done alre-ady” Stella says and brings a shiny crystal out.
“What are you talking about” Gold asks.
“Oh so you don’t know that your daughter is an as-sas-sin and she’s on the run at the moment. Well it’s said that she puts a crystal on each of her victim corpse to let them know she was the one who killed them so that’s why I brou-ght this along with me. I was going to kill two birds with one stone, kill Leonard and make Xander hate crystal the more but it seems like the job is done alre-ady” She says and turns to leave.
“Wait wait Stella I nee-d your help. You and I can put the blame on my daughter” Gold said and Stella smiles evilly.
“You’re such a bad mother”
“I’ll know I am”
Crystal swims out of the ocean and runs into the woods. Tiredly and weakly, something was ma-king her weak and she couldn’t figure out what it was, she felt dizzy and her legs were getting more numb but she couldn’t st©p running, she had to get to civilization and meet Dina and Kate, let them know she’s still alive and Asher is dead alre-ady also get rid of Stella who still poses a threat.
Her whole b©dy system was shutting down and she knew she wouldn’t last long, with two more steps she falls to the ground closing her eyes and going to a de-ep sleep.
“She’s waking up alre-ady, she’s waking up” A little girl’s voice screamed.
Crystal looks around not sure where she was, she tries sitting up but a hand pushes her back gently.
“Just lie down child you are still recovering” A woman in her late fifties says
“Where am I” She asks trying to get up again.
“My son found you lieing unconscious in the woods. He brou-ght you here, your clothes were we-t so we changed them for you. Don’t worry about your child, she’s okay”
“She???, child” What are you talking about.”
“I always know whether it’s a male or a female. God has granted me such gift”
“I don’t un-derstand you. What’s a male or a female”
“Your child, or don’t you know you are with child”
“Okay that’s it. Am outta here, thanks for your help but am leaving” Crystal says and stands up.
“Grandma grandma he’s here alre-ady he’s here alre-ady” the little girl said pla-yfully.
“Who’s here” Crystal asked.
“Me” A male voice says from the door, the old woman stands up and leaves while Crystal tries controlling the rate of the way her heartbeat.
“How did you find me….” Crystal couldn’t finish her s£ntence because Xander gave her a mild but still painful sl@p.
“How dare you” The both of them say at the same time.
“Jumping out of the helicopter…. what are you… wonder woman”
“You sl@pped me… Are you mad”
“You deserve more than just a sl@p”
“You son of a….” She st©ps and puts on her shoes.
“Am leaving here now”
“No you are not” Xander says and pu-lls her back.
“If you try moving away from here, I’ll b!ow those pretty legs away for you” He threatens pointing his gun at her.
“You wouldn’t dare”
“Trust me Crystal, you don’t wanna know what I can do” He says and quic-kly injects her.
“What’s that” Crystal slurs dizzily.
“Something to shut you up” He says and she falls on him. He carries her bridal style and walks out.
“Thanks for alerting ma’am”
“I told you. You only have one Crystal, don’t lose it”
“Am trying not to” He says and puts her in the car.
He drives to one of his houses and orders some of his men to guard the gate.
“Not again” Crystal complains as she wakes up.
“Here eat this. You nee-d to eat something”
“Am not hungry” She refuses.
“Woman would you eat something right now before I f0rç£ the food inside your throat”
“Blah blah blah” She says and stands up looking at the room she’s in.
Xander sighs and stands up, he pu-lls her to himself ma-king her hands t©uçh his che-st.
“What” She asked trying not to get lost in his eyes.
“plea-se Crystal eat something. Am pleading” He says but she still refuses.
She pushes him away but he still pu-lls her back this time ma-king his grip on her ti-ght.
“Aaaaaaargh. Just let go of me okayy” She screams and bites her lower l!ppla-yfully.
“Continue doing that and I would throw all my manners in the sink and k!ssyou s-en-seless” He says. Crystal being who she is continues b!tt!g herl-ip.
“That’s it” He says and cu-ps herl-ips for a de-ep k!ss, filled with anger and lvst. The k!ssdemanded more and Crystal knew it. Her hands found his bu-ttons and in less than five minutes both were ma-king love on the sofa forgetting everything that happened.
Xander woke up later than he should have, he was having a headache which was surprising both then the syringe on the floor made it clear to him that Crystal had done exactly what he did to her.
She had escaped again.
Stella, Gold and Carlos were all having a p@rty in the mansion.
They invited few friends also.
The door opened with a big slam and the first gun sh0t they heard was on the music pla-yer st©pping the music, everyone starts screaming.
Crystal walks in the mansion with a bottle of tequila on her hand.
“Did you guys miss me”
“Crystal what the fv¢k are you doing here. You should be rotting in prison” Stella says and Crystal shoots her legs. She screams in pain and falls down.
“I do the talking okay” She ordered.
“Now all of you leave” She tells the friends and they all scurry away.
The maid that was recording everything that happened, how Gold killed Leonard and planned on blaming it on Crystal comes out. She gives the video to Crystal.
“Thanks Natalie, call Kate she’ll give you your money”
“I don’t want money Crystal. I just want to be in your empire”
“Money first, now leave things are about to get bloody” Crystal says and Natalie leaves.
“First of all am not going to kill any of you. That’ll be too easy for me. Oh wait I made a mistake, I am going to kill all of you, just in a very excruciating way. The bullet I sh0t Stella has a very deadly virus tainted on it. What does it does???” She st©ps takes a sip and continues.
“It’s like acid and fire, it burns your entire inside slowly and painfully for one hour till you die ”
Stella looks at Carlos afraid.
“Now I was only able to take one bullet, fortunately for you Mom and Carlos. Oops am sorry, I made a mistake again. The virus can be contacted throu-gh S-x just like Hiv” She looks at her mom.
“So Stella pu-ll your clothes off and be the slut you were born to be. fv¢k Carlos, before the virus starts to set in”
“Crystal plea-se” Carlos begged.
“NOW!!!” Crystal yells and Carlos puts off his trou-sers .
“Make sure you ¢v-m”
12 MINUTES LATER
Stella had started screaming in pain alre-ady begging Crystal to help her, her whole b©dy had become red and her skin was peeling. Carlos starts crying knowing what lied in sto-re for him.
“Carly what are you waiting for. fv¢k my mother” Crystal orders.
“Honey I am your mother. I gave birth to you”
“Shut THE fv¢k UP bit-ch” Crystal.
“Carlos do the nee-dy right now”
“No plea-se Crystal plea-se no”
1 hour later
Stella is lieing dead on the floor alre-ady, some of her flesh on the floor, her whole b©dy had peeled off ma-king her look unrecognizable while Gold and Carlos are still screaming in pain.
Crystal satisfied with herself turns around to leave the mansion but some officers are standing there alre-ady.
“You are un-der arrest”
Xander runs inside the station scared of what might happen to Crystal.
“Where’s she where’s she” He asks the officers in charge.
“Crystal” He replies
“Oh we’ve taken her to Maximum security. Not even the most smartest and toughest criminal could escape”
“fv¢k” Xander said and hit the table. The officers phone ring.
“Yes…..WHAT IMPOSSIBLE!!!” He yells.
“Sir she escaped” He exclaimed
