The Scotty’s and their bosses were led into the dining room and served drinks while the Hunt’s were opposite them including James.
“Grandma Scotty, it’s nice to see you. What do we owe to your pleasant visit?” Mother Hunt asked with a strained voice.
James’s thought: ‘nice’ and ‘pleasant’ my lower back!
“Well as you can se I bought my granddaughter here. Celine.” She said pointing towards the young girl.
Yes she and Celine shared a name. And instead of endless spoiling and sisterhood the young girl h@ťěd the gut of Celine as she tortured her every chance she gets.
She doesn’t love seeing Celine smiling nor happy. That was one reason to make her life a living hell and this has somehow been how their relationship usually is.
She h@ťěd Celine because she was nothing but a maid to her and worst part they shared a name.
And on top of that Celine was better looking than her. Although it wasn’t very much it was still there.
“Good evening mother-in-law.” The young girl ‘ Celine ‘ said with a huge smile.
She had already planted herself into their family and there was no uprooting her.
She planned on being Jakes’s only woman until death.
“Oh my daughter. It’s very nice to see you here. How has life been?” Mother Hunt asked.
“Great mother.” She said with a small smile.
“Lete call Jakes over.” James said standing up.” Oh I am your little brother. But I am sure I am older than you.”
The family laughed at James as they continued to chat with James outside making the call.
After several rings the phone was finally answered.
“Jakes! Your kid fiancee is here!” James shouted.
“My what?” Jakes asked.
“Your kid if a fiancee her name is Celine man I feel bad for you. That girl has an average face, guava Břě@šť, globe body shape and a pair of crooked hands as though she’s a granny at this age! By 30 she’d look just like a grandma.” James said in pity.
Of course of the facts where exaggerated Crooked hands and a globe body although she was shapeless she wasn’t obese just a bit fat from all the years of spoiling.
“…….. Why were you even paying attention?” Jakes said after a long pause.
“What shouldn’t I check my sister-in-law out?” James shrugged indifferently.
“Wh@ťěver. You can have her if you want. Tell them I am on my way. I have to drop home first.” Jakes said.
“Ok, don’t dress up please. That girl is not our type please.” James said dropping the phone. “I know my parents owe the Scotty’s the first Celine was better this second Celine is a no-go.”
“Their taking action.” Jakes said very seriously.
“What did they do?” Cole asked.
“They sort of wanna marry me. They came with some group of people who are somehow connected to my parents but I don’t know how. The Scotty’s.” He said.
“They wanna what?” Erica’s anger was fueled.
“Upstairs kiddo. This is not news for kids.” Eric said pushing her into the elevator she just came out of and pressing the top floor.
“We the same age.” Erica said in all seriousness.
“No, I am a few minutes older.” Eric said.
After she was sent upstairs the boys resumed their scheming unaware that Erica was angered by the fact that someone was chasing what rightfully belonged to her.
“What did they want?” Noah asked.
“They asked for me to go over to the house. They visited my parents for some discussions.” Jakes said.
“Mm.” Cole said. “Go over. “
“Oh yeah! What happened to Josephine?” He asked.
“She’s currently on a flight back to Brazil.” Teddy said.
“How did you know?” Lucca asked.
“I am a hacker remember?” Teddy said with a relaxed smirk. ” I know because i checked it out. It seemed those people were very honest with their deals. Josephine was immediately let go after the transaction and I don’t know if was fear or what but she immediately booked a flight ticket back to Brazil.”
“That’s good mother is over there. I think she still remembers her face. “Noah said.
“Do you think Erica would be happy to have both parents back?” Lucca asked.
“I do know all I can say is things should get better with time.” Noah answered.
“Nah, she won’t. She’s still angry about the Johnson’s so instead of time it will take a few years!” Eric said.
“Why do you say so?” Noah asked.
“Brother, that family wasn’t really family. All they were good for was putting a roof over her head. I heard she once slept outside in the cold rain because she refused to wash Nelly’s underwears.” Eric said.
“What?” Noah asked.
“Back then even Nelly was allowed to punish her as she pleases and even give her tasks so….
A young Erica in a maids dress stood in front of Nelly who was dressed extravagantly and richly.
A tight slap landed on her cheek.
“How dare you give me fake shoes!” She shouted pointing at the Chanel dress on the couch.
Erica glanced at their parents.
They only looked away as though they didn’t see anything.
“Your gonna wash my underwear squicky clean today. If o see even a single stain your dead! Hurry up!” Nelly shouted.
“But I have a test to study for!” Erica said.
“Commoner’s like you don’t need to read for exams. Their marks don’t matter. Go!” Nelly shouted.
“No!” Erica shouted back.
“Mph, guards take her outside and make her kneel on the bare ground. Fifty strokes of cane on her back and add some Peri Peri were you whipped her after. Also make sure she doesn’t touch her back tie her hands. After that make her right a long apology letter and kneel in front of the house until I wake up and has had breakfast tomorrow morning. No food wanted on dogs.” Nelly said rather arrogantly.
Erica didn’t even bother shouting for parents as she knew just how biased they were.
That’s when she had developed a deep hatred for those two people. And also her urge for revenge. Plus she’ll get repulsed at the words mother and father.
*End of flashback*
Jakes was suddenly agitated about the whole thing and now h@ťěd Nelly to the core.
This lover h@ťěd anyone as much as they hurt his gurl he h@ťěd them.
Noah suddenly understood why Erica wanted revenge.
Not only was it degrading it was embarrassing to wash a grown woman’s underwear.
“Woman are really vicious.” Lucca said knowing a woman’s jealousy better than anyone in the room.
“Yeah, lemme go deal with those pests first we’ll deal with Erica’s revenge plan later.” Jakes said walking out.
“Cool by me.” Teddy said with a smirk.
The two families were still conversing happily when the door opened.
“Good evening mother and father. ” Jakes said not taking any notice of the other five in the room.
“Oh, Jakes your back.” Mrs Hunt stood up and hugged him tightly.
“Mm.” Jakes responded.
“Silly, you. Did you forget to greet your in-laws just now.” Mr Hunt said.
“Which in-laws father?” Jakes asked pretending not to know a thing.
This was a direct slap to the Scotty’s faces.
Their own son-in-law didn’t recognize them?
Where they clown’s?
This infuriated their Madam.
“How dare you?!” She shouted.
“I don’t remember playing truth or dare.” Jakes said.” Worst part with an old bitter hag like you.”
“I am not old, a hag nor bitter! You spoilt brat didn’t your parents teach you how to be grateful to the people who keep your darkest secrets?” The madam felt smug after saying this.
“Oh, so they are dark secrets around here? I didn’t even know.” Jakes chuckled.
The Hunt’s kept quiet they knew that Jakes wanted to know this secret and they just couldn’t bring themselves to say it so they let the other party do it hoping he will be fine even after knowing this secret.
“Ha, so they couldn’t bring themselves to tell you about the sacrifice?” The madam said.
“Please continue. I am all ears.” Jakes said taking a seat.
He was really curious he badly wanted to know his parents secret.
*30 years back*
The Hunt couple knelt in front of the Scotty’s Mrs Hunt(Sarah’s) pregnant belly was bulging.
“Please let my children leave I would do anything.” Sarah said.
“Anything.” A woman’s voice sounded.
“Yes, Madam.” Sarah said to the woman.
Nobody knew her name all they knew was to address her as Madam and not take chances.
“Good.” The Madam said. “I won’t take both of them away I will only take the eldest amongst your twins then I shall let you raise the younger one. Name him Jakes. You will fall pregnant again with a child this child you must name James. He will be Jakes’s twin that your carrying now. And also take this pill it will control the younger fetuses birth. Which means it shall remain in your belly.And we shall sacrifice your parents as a way of payment for me and of course after we kill them you’ll turn into the richest family around here. And if one day you dare go against me in anyway. I promise you both nothing more than bankruptcy!” The madam said.
“Yes Madam.” Sarah said.
“Oh, yes. You’ll collect your punishment later after giving birth.” The Madam said.
“Thank you madam we shall forever honour you.” Mr Hunt said kowtowing with his wife.
*Several years later*
The couple went back to see the madam they had already done the sacrifice now they needed to collect their punishment for falling pregnant before the madam.
They were whipped 50 lashes each then they were spiced like meat and left to dry n*ked in the sun for five days hanging on a tree.
They were then made to kneel in public as beggar’s for another five days.
Then they were not allowed to eat for another five days.
And that’s how they owed the madam and became her slaves as she menacingly tortured them and kept their darkest secrets.
That they killed their own parents.
*End of flashback*
“So James is my twin?” Jakes asked as he glared at his parents.
“Yes, he just came out younger. At least he didn’t die.” The madam said.
“You all are witches!” Jakes shouted standing up.
His own parents killed his grandparents for the sake of money! And even made his twin his younger brother.
Just what sort of witchcraft is this one?
What sort of pill did they buy and were dud they get it from?
What if James had some sort of disability because of his prolonged time in hus mother’s belly!
I mean six years is no small fit!
“You all can continue with your sacrifices to this dirty money! I’ll just do my own thing! In fact you can kill each other for all I care! James what didn’t you say a thing!” Jakes suddenly asked remembering that his brother knew something he didn’t.
“That’s not what they told me! So in what they told me it went like this….” James explained shocked.
“James my son. Those people poisoned your brother and his life will hang on a streak once he turns 40. I would want you to help us out. I don’t want my son to due at such a young age.” Mr Hunt said.
“Why did you let them?” James asked fighting to remain rational.
“They kidnapped him back then we couldn’t stop them. He was only five and you a fetus.” His father said.
“Then why will the drug only take effect 35 years later?” James was still confused.
“I’m this 35 years the drug slowly so fills every part of the human body.” Mr Hunt explained.
*End of flashback*
“I thought I was saving you.” James said. ” But this… This is on another level of insane!”
“Let’s go.” Jakes said.
James didn’t even bother with bags he just stood with his phone and car keys as they walked towards the door.
“You mine you son if a beggar!” Celine (2) suddenly shouted.
She had been greatly obsessed with Jakes ever since she was 8 she wasn’t about to let him go just like that was she?
Not on her watch at least.
“I was never yours. ” Jakes said as he halted his footsteps.
“You are mine! And if I can’t have you then we’ll die together!” She shouted as she suddenly shot him on his back.
Then before anyone could process their own emotions she shot herself on the chest directly to the heart.
Being young and impulsive she didn’t care about her own life.
All she cared about was being with Jakes and nothing else.
She felt living without Jakes was a waste.
And Jakes living without her was also a waste.
So they’d rather die together.
“Celine!” “Jakes!”The madam and Sarah shouted at the same time.
*An hour later*
The doors to the two operating rooms were tightly closed as the families were going crazy outside.
“If my daughter dues your entire family will cease to exist!” The madam said slapping Sarah.
At this point Sarah didn’t care about her all she cared about was her son being gravely injured.
A son she had raised for 30 years and carried for 9 months.
“You still have the gut to say such! If I was you I’d wish my daughter dues so that I don’t see her behind bars you hypocrite!” Sarah shouted in anger.
“Ha, I can always help her escape!” The madam said arrogantly.
“Then what if you also go to jail! Don’t you dare think I also don’t know the amount of families you have killed in the name of making them wealthy and them not being loyal!” Sarah shouted in anger.
Having worked for her for several years before being made rich she knew just how many people lost their lives under the speculation of “loyalty” and “respect”.
And of course she had evidence too.
She just didn’t wanna go against this crazy old woman.
But looking at things now no matter what she did.
The two of them would still be enemies even if God came back and told them to forgive and forget personally.
Almost losing a child in the hands of another mother’s child and being forced to forgive and forget?!
They both had to take revenge before they even consider forgiveness! Over their dead bodies will such a situation of forgiving and forgetting happen.
Today the lines of war were clearly drawn.
“Jakes was shot and us still I’m the hospital.” Cole suddenly announced on the dining table.
“What?!” Erica shouted her voice filled with anger.
“Calm down.” Eric persuaded.
“Who?” Erica asked.
She was clearly not her sweet self.
And those close to her new that.
TERROR has been awoken and this time no one was gonna be left alive.
“The Scotty’s.” Teddy said.
He knew that when Erica was like this all she wanted was revenge and nothing else was gonna appease her more than several deaths tonight.
She was like a cat step on its tail and it would immediately show you it’s fangs.
“Those toothless dogs!” She cursed. “Teddy look into the Scotty’s. TERROR is going out to play tonight cause a few bugs have been calling her recently. Cole prepare guns and bullet’s. I want it to be a death zone tonight. But I won’t kill them instantly. Alex prepare the ware house down here. Eric, Noah and Lucca go look out on Jake’s condition. “
Everyone in the room left on their various tasks.
“Scotty’s, it’s time to play hope you put on a little bit of a fight.” Erica laughed devilishly.
