12. 12

After the little miss hap with Gage and Dax, I didn't train anymore. For once in two years I was actually fearful for my life. I made Oliver cancel the match Saturday and I spent most of the time either watching over my back, or reading The Heir trilogy by Cinda Williams Chima. I don't step foot out of the Mansion unless Oliver, Wally and Becca come with me. 

Shawna keeps asking me, "Sissy, why are you so scared?". I can never answer that question.  I actually don't speak to anyone at all anymore. I sat in the floor of Oliver's room meditating when I hear someone say, "Jade.". I jump and nearly hurt Oliver with a hidden blade. I shake my head and say, "Damn it, Ollie! You know not to do that. I coul-" Oliver shuts me up by kissing me. 

"We have to do something, Jade. You never hang out with Shawna anymore. Everyone is worried about you." he says. I nod my head. The both of us walk down the steps and I see Wally, Becca, Roy and Shawna playing the Monopoly board game. I say to my sister, "Let's go out today. All of us.". Shawna's face lights up, and she says, "Yay!". 

We go to a few different places like; the mall, the movies (again this time to see Frozen) and to an outdoor concert. I begin to feel paranoid as we head to a little carnival at the park. I keep looking over my shoulder and around everywhere. Oliver takes my hand and begins walking with me. He asks, "Are you okay?". I say, "I may have slight PTSD from that near fight with Gage and Dax, but other than that I'm okay.".

Oliver nods. We stay at the carnival for a few hours, then head  back towards the house. As we're walking I get another sense of paranoia. I say, "Let's walk faster please.". Shawna begins to ask why when all of a sudden a familiar white van pull up in front of us; Duncan and Zeus, shit. Roy, Oliver, Becca and Wally push Thea, Shawna and I behind themselves, acting like a shield.

"Back the fuck off and you won't get hurt." Roy shouts. I'm surprised that he cursed, but I shake it off. Zeus smiles like a coyote smiling at seven roadrunners. Duncan just says nothing. I feel Wally push something into my hand; a .45 colt. I put the gun in the waistband of my jeans, hoping I won't need it yet. Zeus says, "You escaped us once, you're sure as hell not doing it again.". That's when Zeus breaks through the 'shield' and grabs Thea. I can feel rage taking over, pure rage.

I grab the .45 from the waistband of my jeans, keeping it at my side. I silently pull the hammer back, priming the gun. I growl at Oliver and Wally, "Move.". Duncan says, "Oooh, I'm so scared dear brother! Little Jade is so scary! I'm shaking in my shoes.". I roll my shoulders and pop my neck.

"Let Thea go, now, before I seriously hurt you.". Zeus and Duncan make cat calls and other obnoxious noises. I point the gun at Zeus, hoping that I scare him. That's when I hear clicking, signaling that someone is behind me. I hear Gage evilly whisper, "Miss me?". I shakily and defiantly shout, "No.". Wally shouts, "Cover your ears!". I'm about to ask 'Why', when I hear this loud high pitched screaming. I drop to my knees and cover my ears, wondering , what the hell is that?

I look up really quick and see Duncan, Zeus, Gage and Dax on their knees. After a few minutes later the screaming stops. I open my eyes to find that Duncan, Zeus, Gage and Dax are gone. I stand up and take a head count, everyone is still here. I sigh in relief, but in the back of my mind I had the nagging feeling that Duncan, Zeus, Gage and Dax were going to be back.

The only thing Oliver says is, "Let's go home.".
