The games passed by in a flash.
Though not as we planned for them to.
Ella had died before we even managed to give her the injection. Stefan who refused to take it thinking that we would end up killing him followed a few games later. Lucas having taken it, is now safe with his family. Mikhail followed on the second game. Yang was down to two chances before she lost and was refusing to give up now. The games were literally becoming an addition to some of the contestants who were refusing the fact of losing, some even claimed that I wanted them out for me to win the games. Lara, Mila, Emmanuel, and Joy have been a great help in saving those who would end up losing their lives. Emmanuel literally grabbed one of the contestants and shoved the injection in his neck without his consent when he saw that he was giving me a fuss.
Now we were down to ten contestants, and the final level was approaching soon. My heart ached whenever I thought of what was to c
I waited for Kristina to report to me that the bodies of Lara, Emmanuel, Mila, and Joy were sent to their families before reporting back to them that their kids have taken the doses, and that they would be waking up after taking the antidote. My heart dropped to my stomach when I saw that Richard and Kiara were on the same team against four contestants who could rat them out.However, that fear quickly faded away when three of them died, leaving Kiara, Richard, and Yang for the last two levels. Though we didn’t know when they were going to start with them. The fact that they were going to stay in that place for a while longer than necessary worried me, especially since Yang was on edge as she believed that Kiara was with Richard, and that the two were cheating on me. We had two options, to either wait and see what would happen, or I could just give an order to shoot the woman, and we get everything done with.But as tempting the idea was, I knew that I couldn&rsq
Kiara:“HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?” Mum yelled at the top of her lungs as she walked inside the dorm where Richard and I were staying. The two of us being the last contestants had the dorm to ourselves.“Hello to you too, mum” I said rolling my eyes. Crossing my arms over my chest, I waited for her to approach me.“You are writing your own death certificate, Kiara! Why the hell are you doing this? What happened to the woman who didn’t cheat on her husband?” Mum snapped. I stayed quiet as I watched her rant “you going ahead and announcing doing this publicly, IN FRONT of Nikolay and the other families, have you really become this reckless?”“So, it’s okay to do it without them knowing? Like cheating but hiding it?” I mocked rolling my eyes at mum whose eyes widened “my marriage is long over, mother. You made sure of it when you kidnapped me, you know, darkening my heart and eyes as
Kiara:I stared at Nikolay’s lifeless body for a second before turning my attention to my mother whose eyes were wide in both fear and confusion.“What have you done, Kiara?” She asked as she stared at both Grace and Nikolay “what have you two done?”“The task, mother” I said coldly. Her eyes were wide in fear when they met mine and I nodded giving her a cold smile, one which she taught me how to give for a long time. She had told me once that it was the way to survive in the mafia world, a cold smile which didn’t reach your eyes, but gave you a peace of mind.She rushed out of the podium through a door and I nodded at Richard to come with me, the two of us leaving the startled audience as we walked through the door. Ian was hiding somewhere, staying away from the spotlight, though that wouldn’t be for long. Mother would come and look for him, and that might not end too well for her, especially when sh
Nikolay:“Come on” Kiara said smiling as she put the spoon of soup in my mouth. The fact that the nurse had told her that the less movements I made, the better it would be made her not allow me to move from the bed unless I wanted to go to the bathroom, and even that was with the help of one of the men.Though, I wouldn’t lie when I say that I can’t see the sadness in her eyes. Despite the smile that she’s been putting on, I can see the exhaustion in her beautiful green orbs. That fact itself was bothering me, whatever it was, I knew that she was blocking it inside her as not to worry or upset me when I was in such a state. But that didn’t mean that I liked or appreciated it.I put my hand on hers when she was about to lift the spoon from the bowl making her frown in confusion as I studied her expression “what’s going on, baby girl? What are you keeping from me that’s having you this broken?”My
Kiara:“Hey” Maddie said peeking her head through the bedroom’s door. Turning my attention to her, I forced myself to smile and nodded at her to come inside.“Hi” I smiled at her, standing up from the floor. I was sitting on the floor with my back resting against the couch. Her eyes met mine and she sighed wrapping her arms around my neck. Hugging me tightly as she did and I embraced her hug. Thankful for her being there for me.“Don’t want to join us for breakfast, Kia? You’ve been dodging your meals unless Nikolay pulls you down with him, and you know that it isn’t good for you” Maddie said softly. She wasn’t blind, no one in this house was. I knew that I wasn’t being fair to myself or this family with what I was doing to myself. But I couldn’t help it.One part of me was still mourning over the loss of mother, the other was breaking inside for not being worth the time of this
Nikolay:“So, do you want to politely tell me what else you did? Or do I need to break the rest of your teeth?” I asked Anastas. My fists covered in blood from punching him as hard as I did. I was currently wearing metal rings that I knew would break his whole jaw if I put the correct force into my punch.Anastas spat on me and I raised an eyebrow before punching his abdomen making him cough out blood. His eyes widened as he tried catching his breath, it having been knocked out of his chest. I was thankful for the walls being soundproof, otherwise, I would’ve have taken this elsewhere.“Again, what else did you do to harm my family?” I asked calmly. My voice was controlled as Vladimir pulled the man’s head back by his hair, forcing him to look at me. Anastas’s eyes were wide in fear as he saw the danger that he was in. But it wasn’t like he didn’t know it, he grew up with me. He knew what annoyed me, what did
Kiara:I laid my head on my husband’s chest as he ran his fingers over my waist. The two of us having rented a house on the beach for a few days to be alone.“So, what do you want to do today?” Nikolay asked me. His lips kissing my temple as I smiled and I looked up at him.“Well, for starters, I want us to make up for lost time. Lost love hours and minutes, you know, that kind of thing” I said looking my husband in the eye, he smirked and laid wrapped his arms around me, bringing me closer to his chest. Bringing my lips to his own, kissing me softly.“You know, since we’re finally alone for the next few days. I was thinking that we could give Dani and Lia a little baby brother or sister” Nikolay said making me raise an eyebrow.“Our children are still babies, Nik” I said looking at Nikolay who smiled.“Exactly, they can grow with one another, having a near age range.
