I pushed Esther to her bed, grabbed the gun and
rushed to my brother who luckily was still
“are you hurt?” i asked nervously.
“thank God she missed, let’s get out of here” he
answered and held my hand, but instantly, Esther
grabbed me from behind and dragged me back to
the bed, delivering few punches on my face.

white guy closed in on him, throwing out a punch
which my brother dodged. In no time, the room

Esther suddenly shouted. I turned, looked at her
