Marco leaned back against his car, his impatience and frustration slowly sipping in slowly. He felt the urge to walk inside that police station and find out what exactly was going, he wondered where Dominic really was to erase this mess.
Marco's phone vibrated within his hand gaining most of his attention, he took the call on the second ring."Davin "
"Sir this new girl that.." Davin tried to explain knowing one wrong word he would be dead.
"Why the hell is your voice shaky, and what the fuck is going on ?" Marco roared
"This new girl has Stephanie on gun point " Marco cursed silently hanging up as Andrea and Gianni walked out of the building staring at him weirdly.
"Get your fucking asses in the car, we have some where to be "
*****Mariana stared at herself in the mirror above the sink, she had escorted Stephanie in the ladies room but to think of it, this was her way to get out of here or lose her life.
Mariana grabbed Stephanie's purse in her hand and unzipped it, she searched through fast while slowly watching the cabin where Stephanie was and luckily managed to get what she wanted.
Smiling slowly, Mariana uncapped the smoky red lip stick staring at it for a minute before writing some words down on the mirror.
' Am so sorry Stephanie but all I need are the car keys, I won't promise not to hurt you '
Stephanie walked out of the cabin just as Mariana placed the lipstick back, her eyes wide as they landed on the Mirror before moving back to Mariana who was holding out a gun to her face."Mariana don't " she whispered to the girl who was taking confident steps towards her.
Within a blink of an eye Mariana held Stephanie pushing her to the front and out of the door, dropping the gun away from her head to her waist in order not attract much attention.
Stephanie tried to act calm as they reached where her brother's men stood staring at the two, she wished Mariana could talk maybe she could get a reason and answers too as why she was doing this.
"Davin give me the car keys " Stephanie demanded holding out her hand towards the well built man,
"Davin please give me the damn keys"Mariana watched as Davin frowned, and now she knew that this guy wasn't going to give in, with much hesitation she held the gun back on Stephanie's head earning a few screams from the people around who ran in the different directions.
Mariana undid the safety of the gun watching as Davin's eyes widened "the keys" Stephanie spoke up in a shaky voice holding out her hand once more, Davin hesitated a bit before pulling the keys out of his slack pockets handing them to Stephanie who forwarded them to Mariana.
Grabbing Stephanie by the arm and pushing her forward that she stumbled almost falling on her face but Mariana was still holding her as they walked out of the mall to the parking lot most of Marco's men following behind not even able to notice Davin on the call.
Her eyes searched for the car they had used while coming until she saw it, a smile forming on her lips.She pushed Stephanie a side and ran towards it holding her guns to them.
Mariana knew that these men won't spare a chance to put a bullet through her head, she didn't want to hurt any one for God's sake but damn she won't have any trouble to shoot if they do it first.
She managed to pull the door open thanks to the stupid driver that left it open, and got in. Just as she ignited the engine Davin pulled out his gun to shot at the tyres but she was fast and hit his shoulder with a bullet that earned screams from people hiding in the parking lot.
Mariana reversed the car out of the parking lot into the road abruptly causing Marco to hit the brakes so hard, her blue eyes met with honey cold eyes through the front glass of his car.
She got on the right side of the road and drove off by multiple cars at the highest speed, looking through the rear view mirrors she noticed Marco's car on her heel and sighed of course he wouldn't let her go like that what was she even thinking?
She reached the highway and stepped on the gas, two cars after her. She noticed the guns and ducked as bullets started to fly her way, before she knew it the two back tyres had been shot, a scream erupted from deep within her throat as she lost control of the car causing it to overturn.
Marco got out of the car running towards the over turned black SUV, he came to halt kneeling on the floor by the driver's side.
Mariana blinked several times opening her eyes fully though every where kept spinning wildly
Mariana raised her head slowly looking around the room, her head hurt badly so was most of her body. Her eyes couldn't open properly but at least she could see something a little clearly.The room was white with blood splashed awkwardly on every wall making her heart beat increase randomly. She wasn't born yesterday or joined this life style yesterday.She was in the death room, the three red tool boxes in the corner made a sweat break out on her forehead. Panic was getting to her, her pulse high and her thoughts fuzzy like she was high on cocaine.She had to get out of here but how, noticing the tight ropes; her whole body froze. She was tied on a chair for fuck's sake she was damn tied on a chair. Her legs and chest too, the adrenaline pushing her to the edge.Positioning her legs and holding her ground she tried to stand up in a weird way, good enough it was a wooden chair making easy way for her
"Davin, untie her " Marco ordered his man who had also walked into the room with a bandaged shoulder, "But boss she.. ""Are you questioning me Davin ?""No boss ""Then good " with that Marco strode out of the room not even bothering to look back.Mariana felt her self sigh out of relief, after all Marco Di Martino wasn't going to kill her anymore and for the job she had been denied those skills since she was sixteen how was she going to pull that off.A loud growl pulled her out of her thoughts, she looked up at Davin.A man who was well built and big enough to scare all the day lights out of her, he had black messy hair and green - grey eyes that held nothing but coldness whilst his red plump lips.The men here knew exactly what they call beauty without a try, Mariana couldn't help but notice the angry scowl on his face.Mariana smiled not so surely hoping he would let go of that anger, she never meant to shoot him
Mariana sat by the window silently staring outside, the rain kept hitting on the glass it's rhythm soothing to her ears.Beryl had covered her thoughts, all she could see was daughter.Stephanie had come up a while ago asking her to come down and have dinner with them but she seemed to had lost all her appetite within a snap.Mariana had unknowingly gone back to pushing herself away from people without realising it, Her thoughts, her past and her pain had become the centre of her world once more.Marco walked in to her room and she didn't even notice, he leaned by the door and stared at her. His thoughts moved back to the first day he had walked into this room after she had arrived, the way she had pushed him away still hurt a bit.A lone tear escaped down her cheeks but there was no way she would notice, there was no day or night her eyes weren't empty even when she was trying to run away.Yet they were the best beautiful thing he had ever
Davin was walking by Mariana's room towards the basement but suddenly he came to a stop, curiosity enticing his nerves. He seriously hated this girl with so much passion yet found himself wanting to see what she really was up to.He looked inside, more careful so he won't be noticed only to find the room empty, even the bed where she should be at this time.Turning his direction he walked in to her room slowly, the only window in here was closed so she certainly hadn't escaped but where was she if not in here at 2: 47 in the morning.Prying his eyes away from his wrist watch and looking around once more the light from the bathroom caught his attention "Mariana " he called out but he still got only silence.Pushing the bathroom door open slowly, he froze his eyes wide as he stared at the girl on the floor. He moved towards her kneeling besides her, he didn't care if she was laying in a pool of her own
Within the midst of darkness, a forge she wanted to escape so badly. Her feet scrapped against the rough floor with each step tookHard and faster, her breathing hallowTears sprinted from her eyes as she came to a sudden halt. " Beryl " She called out loud but got no specific reply, turning around in circles she called
Marco stared at Mariana as she silently pulled herself into a sitting position, she had been transferred out of the ICU where she had been in Coma for one week and two days.Her dark soft brown hair fell in deep waves over her shoulders, her blue liquid eyes holding a light shade of grey and her fairly pink lips in a thin line. This was the first time he was looking at her like the woman she his really not some one he helped.For the first time Marco felt the urge to claim some one so badly, only staring at her right now had caused his heart to slam against his chest crazily than he ever felt it before. She looked up at him his gold - honey eyes meeting hers making her want to lower her eyes in shame as her cheeks became red."Hey " he whispered his voice deep, she could swear she felt it's vibration all over her body. Looking up at him again due to the softness she felt in his voice, some thing was beautifully wrong.
Looking away from Marco, she felt her heart sink and tears cloud her visions. Closing her eyes she dropped her hands off his body causing him to notice her distaste.He was a player, she had seen him bang a lady on his front desk and lastly a Di Martino they got no hearts.Marco watched as she looked back at him, he hadn't shifted a bit from his position so they were still close.Her eyes portrayed pain and held tears " Mariana " he whispered now this is what he was so afraid of, her reaction was starting to make him regret kissing her yet it was something he didn't want to forget or feel guilty about.The door creaked making him pull away from her in a rush, staring at the doctor who smiled there way."Well Marco all I can tell you is that she can go home now and needs more rest don't stress her out, oh and about what you asked me; she can definitely talk whenever she wants "This ticked off Mariana, her hands balled in to fist. H
Standing by the elevator, Mariana closed her eyes for a minute remembering her Father's words.' always take your ears as your number one weapon, they can do more than what your eyes can ever do " She silently listened attentively, her breathing rugged. Silent cries and sobs but then something else caught her attention. She could hear the safety being changed, pointing out the gun in the direction.She remembered the man she saw earlier, his position and height then raised her gun in that direction and shot.She hid back as a loud groan was heard all over the room, grabbing Marco's arm she started pulling him towards down the hall as the lights came back on making them both freeze.
