The Bad Boy Has A Daughter. By Chimdi Jane Samuel. Chapter Three.
*Anna’s point of view*
Running out of my apartment and outside the building, I made my way to school. It was 6:00am now. It was still early but considering I had to be in school early enough to finish mine and Clary’s project, the one she abandoned yesterday.
Grabbing out my phone from my bag, I decided to call her. “Hey, where are you?” I asked.
I heard some groaning, ruffling and finally a thud. “U..hey..” She yawned.
“Where the hell are you Clary? I’m on my way to school, please tell me you’re not still sleeping?”
“I’m sorry, I watched”The Kissing Booth’ again” She chocked on a cough.
My anger surfaced as I scoffed.
I was outside on my own in the lonely street on my way to school. Alone!
“You better get your scwany ass to school in five minutes!” I shouted at my phone before cutting the line and screaming at no one in particular.
I started my walk to school, and I shivered at the cold. The air was cold and a small fog played along the walkway. I hugged myself tighter. School wasn’t too far from here. I’ll be there soon.
But I couldn’t stop the shiver of fear that went through my spine. It was still a little dark and the streets were lonely. Not a soul outside.
I walked faster, passing an alley when I heard someone talking.
Move along, Anna!
But I didn’t listen to my subconscious as I walked backwards and rested on a wall, peeping at the sound of the voice. I saw two men. One was on the floor looking beaten up, his lips busted, a deep gash on his head and a swollen eye. The other man was standing above him holding a gun to his head, smirking. I couldn’t see his whole face but the side of it
“I’m..I’m .go .going to pay you soon. Please spare my life” The man on the floor begged, almost at the point of tears.
And I felt sad. A grown up man almost old enough to be the father of the man standing above him begging? Begging for his life?
“You said three weeks, Daniel, and I gave you four weeks. I need my money now” The man standing said, with a deep, loud voice that made me almost wet my pants.
What was going on?
Anna get out of here now!
No! I have to see what would happen
“I kn..know, just give me. Give me a few more days” The injured man chocked out, pleading with his eyes.
“No, Daniel. You know what happens to people who owe me and refuse to pay. Your time is up!” The man Standing said, followed by a loud bang.
I gasped loudly before covering my mouth with my hands. Oh GOD!!..
He killed him! Oh my God!!!
The man’s body went limp and his neck hung lifelessly. The man standing placed his gun behind me and turned towards me.
I ducked back in fear, and heard footsteps coming towards me..
Oh my God! He was coming here!
I started to walk away quietly so he wouldn’t hear then saw a bin and ducked behind it .
The footsteps increased and I silently prayed for the killer not to see me..
See what Clary has caused if she had done this project I wouldn’t be out here hiding from a killer.
A real killer. I though all these existed in movies.
The footsteps stopped beside the bin and I dared to take a look through the broken sides.
Standing beside the bin with black hair tossed backwards, a little pang of it covering his forehead. Pointed nose, small lips a little dark from smoking. Latge muscles covered in tattoos. He was putting on a sleeveless top and a black jeans. The gun peeking out of his pockets.
Was the one and only Drew Goodman.
You’ll all be wondering if Drew was good. But no! He was far from it. He was the worst nightmare of everyone in this town. He was the ruler of the biggest and deadliest gang here The Snakes and Ladders. They were famous for their drug dealing, prostitution, kidnapping and even killings. Their famous tattoo was a drawing of a red snake on a black ladder. That was their logo.
The police were even scared of them, not wanting to step on their territory, they pretended as if nothing bad ever happened. And even if you called them that your place was getting robbed, they didn’t answer claiming that their line was bad. But everyone knew they were just scared cats.
And their leader Drew, was Standing right here! Beside me!
I saw him pick out a cigarette from his pockets, lit it and placed it between his teeth. Then continued walking.
After waiting for a few more minutes to make sure he was gone, I stepped out of the bin and ran as far as my legs could carry me back home. I didn’t want to encounter any more gang members.
I valued my life too much. I locked my door, checked if I loved it, opened it and locked it again.
My legs shook, my heart raced and I breathed very quickly. I saw Drew! I saw him kill someone! I swear someone die! The man was begging, he was in pains and Drew killed him without blinking an eye! That was the first time i ever saw someone die and I never wanted to see it agsin!. It was terrifying. Oh God! I was freaking out.
And the worst part was that Drew almost saw me. What if he did? No doubt he would have killed me considering I was a witness to his crime. The thought of him putting a gun to my head sent cold ice rushing through my spine.
I was never ever going to school that early again!
No matter what! I thought before falling to the ground, fainting.
Hey guys. So chapter three is here and we’ve all been introduced to another character Drew. What does he have to do with this story? And poor Anna she met him and witnessed one of his many killings. And she was so scared she fainted when she got home. And Noah we still haven’t heard from him and the school he was transferred to. Guess we’ll have to find out in the next chapter. Keep in touch.
