“Mia,what are you doing?” I heard Darrel asked and my heart nearly popped out of my chest.
I slowly turned to see him walking to me.
“I..i..i it’s a beautiful night” I said with my heart beating fast.
“Ohh.. really? But i heard you talking” He said.
“Yeah…i was telling myself how beautiful the night is” I said praying Anne won’t make a sound where she is.
He stared at me for a while, looking like he doesn’t believe me.
I sighed when i noticed my forehead is starting to get hot.
“I didn’t heard you knock” I forced a smile.
“I did, severally but i guess you were engrossed in staring out at the beautiful night” He sighed.
“I guess so” I said.
“I’m here to have your contact” He said.
“That could have wait till tomorrow” I found myself saying.
“I know but it’s for your safety. That assassin do pop up at anytime” He said.
“OMG!” I gasped, faking huge fear.
“Don’t be scared,she won’t hurt you. I’m the one she’s after but in case you notice anything,you give me a call or message me instantly okay?”
“Okay” I said and grabbed my phone.
We exchanged contact while i kept feigning fear.
“Com’on don’t be scared okay? I never planned to scare you but i just had to make sure everyone will be safe”
“Okay thanks” I said.
“Are you starting to wish you didn’t apply for the job?” He asked and i shook my head.
“No..I’m not regretting that i took the job. I’m just worried for our lives” I said.
“It’ll be fine. Everything is gonna end once i capture the assassin”
“I hope you can do that soon” I said.
“Of course i will” He said.
“I will leave you to sleep” He said and started walking to the door, i walked after him.
“Goodnight” i said when he walked out of the door.
“Goodnight Mia” He said and i closed the door and bolted it immediately.
How could i forgot to bolt the door.
Now he’ll start suspecting my every move.
He looked like he didn’t believe what i said.
I turned and saw Anne,by my window,ready to jump in.
“Hey bestie” She said and jumped into my room.
She’s on her ninja outfit but she’s not putting on mask which i found risky.
She’s holding a large paper bag and i wonder how she climbed the wall with that.
“What’s up?” I asked.
“I’m fine,that dude is indeed smart” She said, settling herself on my bed.
“You mustn’t relax completely and try to keep your voice low” I said and she nodded.
“Nice room” She said.
“Thanks” I smiled and went to sit beside her.
“The house feels so boring without you” She said.
“I wish i can kill him and come home soon” I said slowly.
“Me too but boss knows best. So how was your stay here today?” She asked.
“Fine, incredibly fine. The gate keeper made my day” I said.
“Yeah and Darrel is also a nice person” I said and she sighed.
“What?” I asked.
“Nothing,i just feel like not leaving anymore. I want to be here with you” She said and i giggled.
“Com’on,three months is not far,just some weeks and I’m done”
She shrugged “Okay..i brought some of your wigs along too”
“Ohh.. thanks” I said and emptied the contents of the paper bag on the bed.
Boots,ninja outfit,wigs, pistols and bullets…
“Woah! I’m sure i won’t exhaust this bullets till I’m back home” I said.
“You might, you’ll need enough bullets to blow off Darrel’s Holden brain” She whispered and i laughed.
“Mia,is everything okay?” Darrel suddenly asked, startling the day living out of Anne and i.
“OMG!” Anne exclaimed and quickly stood up .
“I’m fine Darrel,I’m watching a movie” I said loudly.
“Do you have a TV in your room?” He asked.
“Geez” Anne trembled.
“Nah! On my phone” I said.
“Ohh…Okay” He said and i heard his footsteps fade away.
“Damn!” I sighed in relief.
“I need to go” She said and turned back to the window.
“Okay,bye” I said and watched her connect the rope.
“Bye” She waved and started sliding down the rope.
I watched her till she got into the car and drove off.
I sighed in relief and sat back on the bed.
I wish she could stay longer…how come Darrel hasn’t sleep yet.
He’s definitely a supernatural being!
I glanced at the content on the bed and smiled.
I need to hide them..
I opened an empty drawer and packed everything in it.
I locked it and held the key in my hand.
I walked into the bathroom and opened the cabinet.
I hid the key in there and made to have my night bath.
Minutes later,i crawled under the blanket and switched off the light.
I love to sleep in total darkness but here i need to be at alert.
I switched on the bedside lamp and closed my eyes.
I opened my eyes and yawned widely.
I laid still in bed,i don’t feel like getting out of bed anytime from now but i gotta check if everyone is okay.
We’re all not safe in this house…
I sighed and then sat up on the bed.
I switched off my bedside lamp and glanced out of the window.
Nathaniel is at his duty post, obviously okay, looking as vibrant as ever.
Okay,i should go check on Mia too.
I stepped out of the bed in my robe and made for the bathroom.
I stood in front of the sink and grabbed my toothbrush and paste.
I started brushing my teeth.
Looking at my reflection in the mirror,i saw how disheveled my hair was.
I dipped my fingers into it and tried to straightened it..
I should know that won’t work,my hair is always in compliance with my comb or hairbrush but not my fingers.
I finished brushing and then rinsed my mouth.
I splashed some water on my face and then picked a hand towel on the towel rack.
I wiped my face with it before walking back to my room.
I picked my hair comb and combed my hair.
Looking a bit better.
I dropped the comb and slide my feet into my footwear,i tightened my robe before walking out of my room.
I closed the door behind me and made for Mia’s door.
“Mia” I called, while knocking.
I waited for a response but didn’t get one.
“Mia” I called, knocking severally.
Has something happened to her.
I pushed her door opened and walked in.
She isn’t in her room and i can’t hear shower running.
I walked out of her room and glanced round the passage.
I noticed it’s looking clean and sparkly.
She has started work already.
I smiled and hurried down the stairs.
I got to the living room and breathed in.
How come the living room is looking more beautiful this morning.
Mia cleaned it too?
I know it’s her job but wow…
I need to commend her.
I heard some sounds in the kitchen followed by a delicious aroma.
“Umm” I smiled and walked to the kitchen.
She was backing me but i could clearly see how she expertly flipped a golden pancake on a flat plate,she added bacon and made to fry more.
“Good morning Mia” I said and she turned.
“Good morning” She smiled.
“How was your night?” I asked.
“Fine” She said.
“I can see you’ve cleaned the whole house,that’s so hardworking of you” I said.
“Thank you” She said and quickly turned back to the pancake.
Her long brown golden hair flipped in the process.
She was putting on a white tank top and pink knee-length skirt.
She has an amazing shape though.
“You’re making breakfast already,i should better go have my bath” I said.
“Okay” She said.
I washed the dishes in the sink after we were done having breakfast.
The dishes were few so i was done in few minutes.
I wiped my hands on a napkin and then walked out of the kitchen.
Darrel was in the living room working on his laptop.
“I’ll be in my room,call on me if you need me” I said to him..
“Do you wanna do something in your room?” He asked,not removing his gaze from his laptop.
“Not really” I said.
“Then sit here and watch a movie instead of getting bored in your room” He said and i glanced at the TV.
Fashion show was on display…i don’t really have much love for fashion.
“Don’t you wanna watch a movie?” He asked.
“I do, thanks” I said and sat my butt on the couch.
“Permit me to change the channel” I said, picking up the remote control.
“Of course you can,i actually thought you would like this fashion show. I thought all female like fashion show” He said.
“Nah, not all female..” I said and changed the channel to my favorite.
I switched off the TV and got up from the couch.
I slide my feet into my slippers.
I need to go take a nap in my room.
Darrel and Nathan already left for where God knows.
I got to my room and walked in, shutting the door behind me.
I sat on the bed and picked my phone.
A new message…
💬 Mia,you have an assignment tonight.
Check your mail for the necessary information.
What if i hadn’t checked my phone.
Well…there’s no time to nap anymore,i need to get prepared.
It’s night already…i bolted my door after we were done with dinner and i made sure everywhere was dead silent before i walked into the bathroom to grab the key to the drawer.
I unlocked the drawer and brought out the necessary things I’m gonna need.
I started getting changed into my ninja outfit.
I grabbed my wig and wore it over my hair.
My boots came next and then my mask.
I loaded my pistol with bullets and dipped it into my ninja outfit.
I grabbed the rope and walked to the window.
A car is parked on the street for me already.
I connected the rope to the gate and was about sliding down.
“Mia” Darrel knocked heavily.
One more chapter to go for today..
It’ll be out by 9pm.
