Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 42
A new life
I woke up feeling nauseous.
“How did I get here?I wondered looking around the room. The last thing I remembered was blacking out after …………
“Yakuza? Did I really kill him? I shuddered at the thought of him laying lifeless on the floor ………..
The door flung opened and I looked up to see Troy walking in holding a tray
“hi baby. he greeted smiling, i can see you are finally awake
“how long have I been sleeping?
“Very very long”. he replied placing the tray in front of me
“Is that an answer?”. I asked with a smirk
“I didn’t keep track of the time”. he replied, how are you feeling?
“Feeling bad”. I pouted
“Why? how?”. he asked
“I feel ……… I don’t know how to explain it
He stared at me for a while and smiled
“I understand how you feel, I felt the same way also but you shouldn’t feel bad about it because you did it to save me…
“Alright. I nodded
“But how did you know about it?
“I overheard your conversation”. I replied
“You overheard or you eavesdrop?
“both”. I replied , what will happen to Yakuza?”. I suddenly asked, won’t the cops find out he was murdered? What if they link…
“Quit worrying Princess, it has been taken care of”
“Really? so you mean I can go out freely
“Of course you can “. he replied laughing, are you really this naive? or you are just pretending
“Pretending? Why will you say so?
“Because I have been wondering how you learnt to shoot “
“ do you think I am a dummy?”. I asked, I learnt from you and I saw him smiled
“Are you having lectures today?”. he asked
“Then eat your food and join me downstairs”……
I dragged myself out of the bed after eating and went into the bathroom to freshen up.
I soon returned to the room when I was done and went over to the wardrobe….
I put on a black long gown, grabbed my bags and headed down the stairs..
I met Troy family , no my family in the room all watching the news of Yakuza death on the television
It was said that he was killed by undercover cops after it was discovered he was into drugs …
I looked at Troy in surprise and met his gaze
“Is this what he meant by taken care of?
“Are you ready?”. he asked
“Fine, he said picking his car keys let us go……
I stopped in front of June department and waited patiently for her to alight before driving off….
I was really shocked when June came running into the room holding a gun…
I was scared she would hurt herself but instead she shot Yakuza dead .
She was my saviour last night, she saved me and as for Yakuza I made sure he died a traitor ..
I drove into the mansion and was surprised to see Miguel waiting for me
I parked and alighted from the car
“Why are you waiting out here?”. I asked
“I was told by your mom you went to drop your wife over at the school so i decided to wait here”. he explained
“Is there a problem?”
“No. he replied, I just want to thank you for aiding us
“It is nothing”. I smiled, how are you feeling?
“getting better”. he replied and how is June?
“She is alright and he nodded
“Can we still be friends?”. he asked
“Sure. I replied, I never considered you an enemy for once even after you betrayed me
“I am sorry brother”. he apologised,Yakuza manipulated all of us and I am glad he is dead. I plan on living a free life from now on
“So do I?”. I replied
“What do you mean?”. he asked
“I plan on quitting the Mafia”. I replied, I have a family to protect…
“ What do you mean you are quitting?”. Andy asked after I told him about it
“I have a family to protect”. I replied
“Then what will happen to the syndicate?”. he asked
“You can keep it”. I drawled,
“I can’t run the syndicate without you”. he barked , so please………….
“Then you can do whatever you like with it”. I replied, I have made up my mind and that is final.I am moving out of this house with my family
“Troy. he called in surprise, I am family also
“I know, that Is why I want you to lead a better life also.you can sell off the warehouse and use the money to start a new life , it is worth it……
I walked out of the class listening to Sara as she kept on gushing about Andy
“I can’t believe you never told me Troy has a friend so hot”.she smirked
“I never noticed he was hot“. I drawled
“How can you not?”. She asked,he is so hot and I think I like him
“Really?”. I asked staring at her,how can you like someone you just met
“It does not mean”. She pouted, I like him and that is it.
“You should have to be….. I stopped when I heard my name
I turned and smiled when I saw Mary running towards us
June. She called again as she got closer, Guess what! She screamed in excitement
“You just won a lottery”. Sara replied with an eye roll
“It is more important than that”.She said grinning
“What could be more important than winning a lottery?”. I asked
“I am taking Miguel home to meet mum and dad”. She replied jumping in excitement
“Really?”. I asked in surprise, have you told mom and dad about it?
“Yes”. She replied and they are so eager to meet him
“Why am I the only one left out?”. Sara asked looking sad, I need someone to love me also
“You will get one soon”. I assured her
I soon got home and walked into the sitting room.
I was surprised to see big boxes and bags in the sitting room
“What is going on here?”. I wondered,
“Mummy. Tricia called running to to hug me
“how are you baby”. I replied ruffling her hair
“I am very happy”.she said jumping in excitement, Daddy said I will start school once we get to our new home
“New home?”. I asked in surprise
“Where is Your Daddy?”. I asked
“In his room”.she replied and ran off to meet Trent
I headed up the stairs and pushed the door to the room opened
Troy was on call and I went over to the bed to sit down
I looked around the room and noticed most of my clothes were arranged neatly in a big box.
“hey baby”. he greeted throwing his phone to the bed
what is going on here?
“We are moving”. he replied
“Why?”. I asked in surprise
“Because I want us to start a new life”
“Troy. I called softly, Are you planning on………
“Yes”. he replied, I am going to quit the Mafia…………..
