#Chapter 19



Zeemah writes







“Mia,do you want to go with me for morning jog?” I heard Darrel asked behind me.


I was preparing breakfast in the kitchen.


I switched off the gas cooker before turning to him.


He’s clad in a jogging suit and his hair was packed into a ponytail.


“Morning Jog?” I asked.




“Do you do it before?”


“No,but i have to do it today” He said.


“Why?” I asked.


“Umm…i would love to keep the reason to myself. Do you wanna come along?” He asked.


“Nah” I said.


“Okay,see ya” He said and walked away.


I watched him till he walked out of the door.


What’s up with him?


He was looking like someone whose plan already worked out.


Is he about to succeed in his plan to capture me?




I dropped the spoon i was holding and hurried to his office.


I made sure i heard the gate close before opening the door.


I walked in and quickly glanced around for a CCTV and i was glad i didn’t see any.


I walked to his table and opened the laptop he was working on yesterday.


I pressed the power button and it came into life.


I bit my lower lip as the damn thing requested for a password.


I wish Robbie was here,he would have hacked into this damn thing.


I sighed and started opening the notepads on his desk,there’s nothing about me




Nothing at all.


Is he not working on my case?


How come there’s nothing about me.


Every damn thing will sure be on this laptop.


Darrel is too smart to keep things in notepads.


Then what was he scribbling yesternight.


I continued my search and saw a familiar address on one of the note pads.


This is the home address of the couple i assassinated a month ago.


He wants to go make findings. I bet he would find none.


I do sealed job, nothing is always exposed.


Keep searching Mia.




I didn’t find any more important thing in the books.


By now,the books were already scattered.


I started arranging it.


I proceeded to the files when i was done arranging the books.


I started opening the files one after the other.




Mia, aren’t you taking long here.



A file nearly dropped off my hands when i heard the sound of the gate. Oh my god!


I started arranging the files back in it’s place with immediate effect.


I pressed the power button on the laptop and didn’t wait for it to go off completely before closing it.


I rushed out of the office and ran to the kitchen.


I breathed in and out as i switched on the gas cooker.


I adjusted my chef cap and apron trying to appear as normal as possible.


I heard the door opened and i was expecting him to show up at the kitchen immediately but he didn’t.


I continued with the breakfast i was making.


“Mia,did you go into my office?” I suddenly heard behind me.


My heart beat accelerated and i tried to wear a smile as i turned around.


“Yes Darrel” I said.


“To clean right?” He asked.


“Exactly” I said, hiding my relief.


He dabbed the sweat on his face with his face towel.


Even though his hair was packed in a ponytail,some strands clung to his forehead, looking more dark with sweat.


Now I’m convinced that Darrel can be cute with even a bald head.


He opened the fridge and grabbed a chilled bottle of water for himself.


He twisted the cap and gulped the whole water down his throat.


“Woah…you finished that?” I asked and he smiled.


“Yeah” He threw the empty bottle in the waste bin outside the kitchen.


“Breakfast isn’t ready yet?” He asked hungrily.


“Yeah, it’ll be ready before you finish freshening up” I said.


“I better go do that then” He said and walked out of the kitchen.


I sighed.






“I’ll be going to the CIA office once I’m done with my breakfast” Darrel said and i almost asked why.


“Okay,i hope everything is fine?” I asked.


“Sure” He said with his mouth full.


I nodded and faced my breakfast,i keep having this feeling that something isn’t right.


“Where did you learn how to cook delicious meals?” He asked.


“My older brother is a chef” I said.


Joel is a chef… isn’t he?


“Wow,i would love to meet him someday” He said.


“Of course you will”… I said


‘after you’re dead’ I added inwardly.




“Am i good to go?” Darrel asked walking into the living room.


I’m watching a movie after i was done with the dishes.


“Yeah,you look perfect” I said.


“Thanks,do you wanna come along?” He asked.


“To the CIA office?” I asked.






“Nath will be coming along too,i don’t want to feel lonely and bored” He said.


“Thanks but I’ll be fine,the TV will serve as a company” I said.


“Are you sure?” He asked.


“Yeah?” I smiled,glad that I’ll have some time to practice for my mission tonight. “Okay bye. I’ll make sure we don’t stay long”


“Alright bye” I said and watched him walked out of the door.



I sat impatiently, waiting to hear the sound of his car drive out.


It finally did.


I rushed to the door and pulled it open a bit.


I watched as the gate closed automatically.


“They are gone” I jumped around and started practicing immediately.






I walked out of the bathroom after taking a cold bath.


It’s 4pm already, they’re not back yet.


I’ve stopped practicing hours ago.


I feel so strengthened now..I’m ready for anything that might come my way.


I got my body into a simple wear and i just combed down my hair.


I wore my slippers and walked out of my room.


The house was dead silent..


I already prepared lunch,i was waiting for them to get back before eating but i can’t wait anymore.


I walked into the kitchen and brought out the lunch from the fridge.


I switched on the microwave and placed it on a timer before pushing the meal inside.


I closed it and walked to the living room.




How could i leave the TV on?


I sat on the couch and watched it anyway.


I heard their car drove into the compound at the same time the timer went off.


I rushed to the kitchen and quickly switched off the microwave.


I brought out the meal which was now steaming hot.


Good thing they are back…


I didn’t wait in vain.


“I’m home” Darrel shouted from the living room.


“Welcome home” I said loudly and started dishing out our late lunch.







I sniffed as Eric patted my back.


“Com’on Katy,he didn’t called you for days doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about you” Eric said to me.


“He doesn’t! He refused to call me ever since i warned him about the live-in housekeeper he was about to employ” I said.


“No, he told me the housekeeper is no criminal. He interviewed her before employing her. She’s just a private person who doesn’t like exposing her personal information”


“All private person has one or two things they hide,most of the things hidden things are always bad!” I said and adjusted in my seat.


“Well…that’s thoughtful of you,I’ll inform Darrel about that”


“I’m not even concerned about that, how could Darrel not call me or text me for the past two days” I expressed my hurt.


“You know how Darrel is once he’s buried in work,he doesn’t think of other things. I’ve also been calling him but he’s not picking” “Really?”




That’s true..


Darrel doesn’t think about anything else once he’s buried in work, he’s probably working hard in capturing the assassin so he could return to California soon. I shouldn’t be pissed at him.


” I already texted him and i hope he replies soon” Eric said and i nodded.


“Thanks Eric. I will text him too” I said.


“Good,I’ll return back to my seat” He smiled and walked away.



Darrel….” I was texting him when i saw Eric walking back to my table.


“Look” He smiled stretching his phone to me.


I took it and stared at the screen.



Buddy, I’m sorry I’ve not been picking your calls.


I’ve been busy.


How are you? And how’s Katy doing. I’ve missed her,I’m gonna give her a call tomorrow.





My lips spread in a wide grin and Eric chuckled.



Back in New York




I walked into my room after bidding Darrel a good night.


I quickly bolted my door and hurried to the bathroom.


I grabbed the key from the cabinet and walked back to my room.


I need to start getting ready for my mission tonight.


I unlocked my drawer and brought out the necessary things.


I started dressing up in my adorable ninja out.


I feel happy whenever I’m putting it on.


I loaded my pistol with enough bullets,and pulled on a red wig over my hair.


I wore my mask too,then my boots.





I was about connecting the rope to the gate when i heard the gate opened,the sound of a car driving out came next.


It’s Darrel’s car.


Where’s he driving to?


He might want to get something.


I watched him drive past my car which was already parked there at a corner.


I made sure he had driven far before connecting the rope to the gate.


I slide down the rope and landed on my feet.


I disconnected the rope and speedily ran to my car.


I opened the car door and got in,i twisted the key in the ignition and the car jerked to life.


“Bond street” I said and started following the direction of the Google map.






I’ll be assassinating Mr Rousey at building 8 but i parked in front of building one .


I don’t usually park in front of the exact buildings.


I stepped out of the car and locked it immediately.


I sighted building 8 from a distance and started walking towards it.


I was contemplating on climbing the wall or going through the gate when a bad aura washed over me.


I turned and was shocked to see almost ten cops standing behind me and pointing a gun at me.




I smiled and turned back to the gate, almost five cops already appeared in front of me and i was more shocked to see Darrel among them.


How did he got the information?


I jerked back to reality when he spoke up.


“Surrender now!” Darrel said loudly and i nearly laughed.


Pistols were being pointed at me.


I hope Darrel already informed them that I’m putting on bulletproof,else they are all gonna waste their bullets tonight .


I walked closer to the gate ignoring them all.


They started shooting as i expected but none of their bullets affected me.


The gate is opened already and i stepped in.


I have nine bullets in my gun,two will be for Mr Rousey


There are almost twenty cops here,I’m just gonna kill seven of them with my pistol,I’ll handle the rest with my fist but i have to go accomplish my mission first.


I quickly locked the gate after me and left the fools shooting at the gate.


I rushed into the apartment of Mr Rousey and i bolted the door immediately.


I couldn’t find anyone in the little living room,there are just two bedrooms in the house as i was told.


I walked into the centre of the living room and saw two doors facing me..


I quickly pushed one of the doors open when i heard the cops starting to jump into the compound and trying to break down the door.


My guess was right.. I saw Mr Rousey walking out of his bathroom,unclad.


His eyes widened and his breathing hitched when he saw me.


I didn’t waste any time before shooting at him.


Those cops are damn fool!


They should have gotten him out before i got here.


Even if they got him out,I’ll still succeed in assassinating him.


I heard the door broke down,and heavy footsteps grew nearer.


I quickly climbed onto the nearest bedroom stool and pushed one of the ceiling boards,it gave way and i climbed through the opening,then returned the ceiling board to it’s place.


I crawled towards the farthest end of the building, looked out to see if anyone was around.


I climbed down the wall,using the openings i found.



I landed outside the gate on my feet.


I was about running to my car when four CIA agents surrounded me, pointing their pistols at me.


I scanned their faces…Darrel wasn’t among them but i know he’ll be somewhere close.


Steve was the only one i recognised among them and i smiled.


This might just be the opportunity to kill him but then i saw some cops running towards me, shooting at an alarming rate.


I released my remaining bullets on seven of them,they collapsed immediately.


The rest ran off..


I tucked my pistol in my ninja outfit and decided to fight the four CIA agents with my fist.


I threw one of them a punch in the mouth and i was so disappointed to see him fall like a weightless being.


The remaining three rushed at me but i quickly stopped them with my boot.


I raised Steve up with his CIA uniform and used him as a painful whip for the other two agents.


They fell on the floor, groaning.


I picked one of their pistols and shot two of them,they died instantly.


“Please don’t kill me,i swear i will quit being a CIA agent. I beg of you” Steve pleaded and i laughed.


I hit the pistol on his head and watched him sway helplessly to the floor.


I heard gunshot from a distance..


Why can’t they all come out and face me.


I started walking to my car but stopped when i saw two CIA agents appeared from a corner.


They pointed the guns at me.


I looked at them closely and saw it was Luke and Edwin.



I should kill them immediately but they deserve to live cause they were nice to me.


“Your hands up” Luke said.


If only he knew it was his crush…haha.


I kicked Edwin in the stomach and grabbed Luke by the neck.


I saw Edwin trying to shoot at me from the floor.


I quickly raised Luke and slammed him hard on Edwin’s body.


I grinned and headed to my car..


I looked around wondering where the rest of them were.




I unlocked my car and got in,i closed the door and inserted the key in the ignition. My hands were already on the wheel,i glanced up to start driving only to see


Darrel standing in front of my car,he was pointing a pistol at me,with his forehead bleeding heavily.




Am i the one that hurt him?


No,i didn’t.


“Get down” He said slowly in his weak voice.




Darrel move away or I’m just gonna kill you.








The beautiful killer
