*THE DEADLY MARK*
The heavy rain began to slow down but thunder and lightening took over the weather just like Cassandra had foreseen. The night got darker as time passed by.
Thessy was already in tears in Kelly’s arms staring at his lovely and charming eyes. She could also see his attractive beards. The room was bright enough to see their faces. Thessy gradually touched Kelly’s face.
“Am i gonna die?”
“No, you will not die! Not when I’m still alive”
Thessy smiled still touching and looking at his face. “We will get married, right? And have lovely and handsome kids like you”
“Yes, my love. Just don’t be afraid”
“I’m no more afraid because I’m in your arms”
Kelly gave a weak smile nodding his head positively in tears..
ON THE ROAD INSIDE A CAR
Cassandra remained speechless after d phone called conversation Lawson had with Kelly. It was obvious that Thessy was the next to die. So Lawson also remained quiet. Only the sound of the car whipper was head inside the car. The taxi driver saw that the road was too lonely and dark, then he pulled over.
“What’s wrong?” Lawson asked him.
“I can’t go further”
“I said i can’t go further! You guys should get down from my car!”
“Mother, is the place still far?” Cassandra asked.
“Just a mile remaining”
Meanwhile, Lawson had gone down from the car walking towards the driver door. He opened it forcefully and hit the driver unconscious, then carried him into the boot of the car. Mrs Jonas gasped in fear.
“What do you think you are doing?” she asked Lawson
“I’m doing what should be done” he started the car and drove off. Cassandra remained quiet but was surprise that someone like Lawson could do such a think to a poor driver. Lawson adjusted the front mirror of the car and his eyes caught with Cassandra’s on the mirror. Silence took over.
Few minutes later, they stopped in front of the building.
“This is the house” Mrs Jonas said without stepping down.
Cassandra and Lawson came out. She saw the three trees and flowers, at that moment a thunder with lightening stricked again which made the local house visible. The roof had been damaged with open windows. Even a grass was seen on the roof.
Cassandra began to move towards the house. Seeing that, Lawson followed her immediately. Only Mrs Jonas remained inside the car and the driver in the boot still unconscious.
Cassandra slowed down when she climbed the stairs. The thunder stricked again. They could see cobwebs and damaged pot and cushions. Before them was a door which led to another room. Cassandra gradually opened it, but gasped when Lawson mistakenly kicked a pot.
“What’s wrong with you?!”
“I’m sorry, my bad my bad”
They entered the room. She saw a metal box which she cracked opened and cockroaches ran out of it. She brought out a book from it. Instantly, a strong wind started blowing.
“Lets get out of here!” Lawson exclaimed.
Cassandra wanted to move but the wind blew the book off from her hands. She grabbed it by force, yet the wind kept dragging the book with her. Her gown flung up exposing her white pant covering her attractive butt. Lawson held her waist dragging her backward before she was free from the strong wind. They began to run towards the car, pursued by the wind which carried dead leaves and sticks. Mrs Jonas gasped when she saw them running.
“Get inside the car!” Lawson shouted
Cassandra entered waiting for Lawson to start the car but it didn’t start.
“The demn car doesn’t wanna start anymore! Shit!” he replied.
They could see the wind coming with a dangerous force. Before it could get to the car, it started and Lawson drove backward with speed. He reversed and took off to the main road.
“It think we lost it” Cassandra looked back without seeing the wind again.
“Are you with the book?”
“What book?” Mrs Jonas looked at Cassandra’s hands.
Suddenly, the driver regained consciousness hitting his hand on the boot. “Get me out of here you bastard!!” he shouted hitting it harder. Lawson glanced at the front mirror again and saw Cassandra smiling, then he also gave a weak smile.
At their destination, in front of Mrs Jonas house, Lawson pulled over. Cassandra entered into house with her mother before he opened the boot letting the driver out.
“You bastard! How dare you put me in such a place?!”
“I’m sorry, sir but here is your money” he handed a bunch of money to him which obviously rendered him silent. Seeing that, Cassandra smiled from the window.
“Son of a bitch!” the driver put the key in the ignition and drove away.
Lawson entered waiting and looking at Cassandra for a solution. “What’s the book all about?” he asked.
“I don’t know” Cassandra replied.
“Then open it!”
Everywhere became quiet as Cassandra opened the book and a bright light shone into her eyes from it…
