Marco:She’s a kid
Marco:what the heck! do you mean so what?.

Gunman:i couldnt even get ten bucks for her in the street.
The gunman cracks the gun and was about pulling the trigger
Marco:Are you stupid or what? Here!.
Marco hand’s him some cash.
Marco:here is twenty assholes.Go do your job.
The gunman took the money and went and join the others in ripping the house apart,looking for the memory card.
Marco calmly goes to the fridge,take a bottle of water,
cracks the cap.And drink from it.He sits opposite Cataleya on the dining table.
Marco:(softly) remember me Cataleya?
she shake her head
Marco:i was at your confirmation.my name is Marco,and i was a very good friend of your dad.I know this terrible for you to see
All this while,his men are searching.

Marco:some things are too complicated for a kid to understand.This is one of them.But am gonna make it simple for you to understand.
Marco:You know who Don luis is?
Cat responds nodding her head.
Her hands slip to under the table to feel if the dining knife was there.She hides it there.
Marco:of course you do.He was your father
best friend.He’s like an uncle to you.You know he has been good to your family?.
Again Cat nodes.
Marco:this house.The food you eat,the clothes you wear.Even your school fees.All this comes from Don luis.You know that?.
Marco:but when someone is good to you and you are not good to them.Then bad things happen.
He pointed to the dead couples.
Cataleya looks from the bodies of her dead parents.And looked back at Marco
No emotion in her eyes.
Marco:good.Your father had something that belongs to Don luis.A little thing.No bigger than……
He holds up his thumbnail.
”Do you know what am talking about?.”
She gripes the knife handle.
Marco:well,if you give it to me,Don luis will be very grateful,he will make sure you are clothed,feed,and sent to the very best school.But if you dont give it to him.He will be unhappy,and you see what happen when he’s not happy
Marco:you are a smart girl,and in this life,smart girls get everything they want.

ready to drive it to Marco hand.
Marco:if you give me the little thing.i promised to give you anything you want.
What do you want Cataleya.just tell me.
