Oct. 29th –
“You should’ve seen her face when I shot her! Best kill ever, by far.”
It took me a while, but eventually my mind caught up.
Well, not really.
It was currently five in the morning. I had no idea what was going on. All I managed to figure out was that the voice in the living room was what woke me up. It felt like I had just fallen asleep a few moments ago and already, my life was being turned upside down.
“She never saw it coming! See? The Augustus line isn’t anything to be scared of.”
Definitely doesn’t sound like Jackie.
“Yeah, she was unarmed. I don’t know why she’s hiding out in this dump when her parents are filthy rich.”
Apparently, at five in the morning, my mind and body don’t match up because I felt my legs propel me out of bed and towards the door while my mind was still screaming WHAT WHAT WHAT?
I don’t freak out often. So when I do, you sure as hell know it’s for a good reason.
My reason was because as I was slowly sneaking into the hallway, a pain struck the back of my head and all went blurry.
At first I thought I had been smacked upside the head with a bulldozer. That was until I realized the voice was still going on about how great it was and how so-and-so was going to be next.
Eve, where are you?
My feet stopped.
That was new.
Eve?! Where did you go?
Who the hell is this?!
The hell is your roommate, dumbass. Get up.
What? My brow furrowed as I clutched my head.
What! I told you to get up! You can’t just lay there!
Where are you?
Oh for crying out loud – I’m dead. Alright? Didn’t you hear the stupid slayer? He shot me.
He shot you.
He shot me and now if you don’t hurry up, he’ll shoot you too.
Why? I didn’t do anything!
You heard him. You’re a threat now. And you’re roommates with an Augustus. That’s already a death wish in my world.
You never said that when you applied!
You didn’t ask.
Yeah! I didn’t think I needed to ask if you or your family was caught up in some sort of mafia, illegal…gang, murderer…activity!
A pause before there was a crash in the kitchen and lots of swearing.
The voice yelled into the phone, “Send for bloody backup. She’s not alone.” Silence before: “WHAT DO YOU MEAN THE AUNT’S STILL OUT THERE? I THOUGHT YOU CAUGHT HER, YOU IMBECILE!”
Now you know.
