episode 3

For the next three days after the incident, Living with her became a little tedious, believe me I tried, she was a shadow of her former self, she spent majority of the day staring out the window without a care in the world, those green eyes I loved so much seemed dead, she even looked dead, she had stopped taking care of herself, looks didn’t just matter to her anymore, and the sight of her was starting to bother me.  I was woken up those nights by her screaming, she begun to have nasty nightmares, the nightmares were wrecking her, I tried my best, I suggested her seeing a doctor but she vehemently refused, I had the last straw when she woke up one night screaming hysterically….

I held her and said; pull your-self together babe, chill out; it was only a nightmare, I am here babe; I said
Leave me alone, she replied, let me go, I can’t live like this anymore, and she burst out in tears wailing and screaming, her voice echoed round the quiet compound…after I succeeded in calming her down she looked at me with tear filled eyes and said; you promised to protect me, and yet you failed, as she burst into more tears.

I gave her a little sedative as she drifted to sleep, I stayed awake and watched her twitch in her sleep, I stayed up pondering on what to do because the week was almost up and star-fire was going to come for her. He hadn’t failed to carry out a hit till now; running was out of the question because the last man who ran had his head blown off immediately he stepped into the airport…. I was confused and angry and so I decided to take a walk to blow off steam….

I was probably too consumed in my thoughts or I would have noticed the shadow beside me…. A burst of pain exploded on my head as I gasped out air, the shock and velocity of the attack left me a little dazed, I tried getting back up but a kick to my side made a painful scream leave my mouth… I held my sides in pain and groaned as I fell on a number of large stones on the floor

just then I heard a voice say; I told you we would get you, I knew the voice;  it was unmistakably one of the guys who attacked Natasha, I heard another voice say; Jake common bash his head in quickly…
Jake replied; relax, I want him to suffer a little, as he kicked me again….

I heard a third voice say; just make it quick will you.

My anger had vanished now, and the pain made my survival instinct step in, I had taken his boot in my side twice and I already had an idea of the intervals, he kicked me again as I counted in my head, to me these hits were nothing., I could take it, he hit me again and I knew  for certain how many seconds interval before the next kick came in, I opened my eyes a little and saw the ferociousness in his eyes as he raised his leg again trying to hit my face.. I shielded my face with my hands and grabbed his leg with my right hand, sill holding his leg in place, I quickly picked a large stone with my left hand, Jake struggled viciously to escape my grip, and with all the force I could muster I bashed his knee in with the stone as he cried out in pain…

Shit Jake, I heard a voice say as I heard footsteps and felt another burst of pain on my arm, I let out a little scream as I let go of his legs, then they descended on  me and kept bashing and kicking till I drifted off into darkness…

I opened my eyes a little while later and I noticed I was being dragged on the floor; I heard one of the voices say
Jake hurry up and he replied shut up Borg….. He burst up my freaking knee, Borg sneered and replied you were careless just hurry up and let’s dump him off. The third voice a bit deeper and scarier than the others said; you two shut up, and don’t attract any silly attention with your ranting.

Yes Blake, they replied simultaneously and that seemed to shut them up, as I was dragged in silence for about two minutes, I decided to save my strength and let them drag me.

I heard Blake say this spot is okay, Jake check if he is still unconscious, and Borg you start digging, we are going to bury this sucker alive, nobody will mess with us after this… alright Borg said and he started digging, I held my breath, closed my eyes and stayed motionless as I heard someone drag himself over to me and I think he waved his hands over my face, he is still out said Jake, good Blake replied, that makes our job easier, come over let me take a look at your leg, I listened as I heard him drag himself away from me..

I opened my eyes a little and had a good look at the men, the one who was called Blake seemed like the most obdurate and cold-blooded of the three, I studied him and noticed he looked like a pro wrestler, he had a thick scar between his eyes that made him seem more menacing, he looked like someone who could take sadistic delight in harming a man, I had to be weary of him.

I looked at Borg as he dug the pit, he too like Jake was just a young boy, he must have been the one hitting me, and I guessed the shovel was what he used, I needed that shovel if I was going to get out of this situation in one piece, Blake seemed to concentrate on fixing Jake’s leg, and the sound of the digging drowned the noise I made as I crawled towards Borg as he paused to clean off sweat off his brows…

I waited for him to continue digging and stood up silently… he was so consumed with his work and dint know when I got behind him, he had his back to me as he bent to dig some more, and with all the energy I could muster I smashed my elbow to the back of his head, he let out a light yelp as he dropped into the pit he was digging unconscious..

I picked the shovel as and put it beside me… Jake looked up and screamed at me; you Ass, he said and charged towards me half running and half limping, I guess he didn’t notice the shovel and neither did he listen when Blake said hold on you idiot…. I waited till he got a little close to me, I lifted the shovel and smashed it against his face, and that sent staggering back, I landed him a clean punch to the lips, he went down briskly as I brushed his blood off my knuckles with my shirt.

I looked at Blake and he stared at me, he dint even move from where he was seated, he just stared with viciousness in his eyes, I knew his type… during my days as a mercenary I met a lot of very tough guys but there was something about Blake, he had evil eyes, ears that had no fear, and the lack of fear made him quite a hellacious foe…

He took his time in getting up, and for once I saw the size difference, he said young children never listen huh? I kept my eyes on him, holding the shovel and taking a defensive stance.

He laughed at me as he asked; do you intend to take me out with that?? He walked towards me, and I could hear his shoes quacking due to the excessive bulk of a man they carried

I studied him, he was a very large man, and I knew I had speed to my advantage, or so I thought,  he got a few feet of me and I swung the shovel towards his face with all the strength I had, I definitely misjudged his speed as he ducked with a speed I thought was impossible for his size, his fist connected to my side as I dropped the shovel and with the same speed he landed  his fist to my jaw with tremendous force, I staggered back quite dazed, his power was beyond mine as I expected, well I wasn’t ready to die here I thought, my mind was calculating rapidly, extending the fight with this brute could be deadly, I faked him a haymaker and he shielded his face giving me a perfect opportunity to connect a  kick to his groin, he mustn’t have expected that cheap shot from me as his hands cupped his groin with a funny face, in a fight for survival I believed there was no shame in fighting dirty.

I quickly picked up the shovel and with all the strength I could muster and pasted it on his face, the blood from his nose created a very good painting on the shovel, if I wasn’t fighting to live I would have sold it for a good price. He staggered back and before he could recover from that I jumped up with the shovel and bashed the top of his head, he went down on his knees and said a few words I dint understand before he drifted into unconsciousness, the noise he made when dropped to the floor  was like that of a crumbling building….

I was about leaving when I noticed Jake was getting back into consciousness, He said as he groaned, you ass, as he spat out some blood;  star- fire  is going to come for you, and I swear I am not going to miss it… I stopped in my tracks and went back to him, you sent the assassin?? Ha-ha, no I didn’t you idiot, but I know who did, you and that silly girl messed with a lot of people, he has been paid to make you suffer , and he is going to make you suffer, this is just a bonus, I picked him up in anger and asked;  how am i going to call of the hit and his reply made me flinch;

he is not going to stop till you are both dead, he is never going to stop even if we want him to.. Once a hit is called, he never stops till he gets results…I knew he couldn’t tell me any more at the moment so I dragged him closer and said to him; if I do survive what is coming, you had better run, I said; run very, very far, because I am going to come for you, and you are going to talk..
I released him and walked forward a little, I turned quickly and swiftly landed a haymaker to his jaw, he dint expect it so his knockout couldn’t be avoided, I winced in pain as I felt pain from the bashing I received earlier, my shirt was soaked in my blood and dirt, but that didn’t bother me, I thought to myself, he was coming, for her, nope he was coming for both of us, and I knew we didn’t stand a fighting chance, our survival was basically one in a million……we were screwed….
