Love In The Darkness

Can you actually fall in love with a mafia heir that will soon marry you if you find out his darkest secret in your darkest hour?

***Ashreigh was the only one from the Leighton family who managed to survive the major assassination in their manor. Her parents' car burned into ashes with them, she was showered with a shot, and the mansion wrecked down like a fallen glass of water that killed a lot of servants.

Her tragedy gave out a new beginning. A new life that will soon start to be written in her book of life.


10. Darkness Nine: Brothers

The living room was silent.

El had decided not to attend school today to discuss a matter that involved me and... That new comer perverted twin of that guy.  I sat on the sofa away from the guy Caile and Jack called as Edril because I think I'm traumatized by what he did.

"Oh come on El. Just go to school and don't destroy your perfect attendance." Edril told him.

El simply gave a glare. "Maybe if you didn't harrass miss Lewis here, there wouldn't be a problem." He said.

"Miss Lewis?" Ed laughed voice dramatically rose as he pointed a finger on me. "You're one of the fiancé yet you're acting as if this is a professional relationship. Its so you!" He still laughed.

"Ed." I heard El said in his warning tone of voice.

"Sheesh. Can you stop being such a mafia boss. I'm your brother here so at least try to act more casual." Ed rolled his eyes.

"You are not listening to me."

"Why would I listen to someone just the same age as mine--"

"You're being unreasonable."

"Oho!" Ed scoffed with a sign of annoyance in him. "Says mr. Perfect! Hey, Ash. Have you met Mina?" He suddenly turned to me.

I felt choked over the question. But I tried to pretend that I don't actually mind meeting her. I just stared at him.

"Oh, so you did! Why do you think did El chose to like that kind of bitch--"

"Ed enough!" Surprised by his sudden raise of voice, all turned to El who looks furious.

"Why? You don't want me to tell the type of girl you want Ash to become?! You don't want her to know that all your women went through a really great transformation that they all acted so perfectly to your ideals--"

Caine, Jack and I stood surprised when El charged his fist right through Ed's face that caused the table in front of us collapsed when he fell. El still didn't stop pounding his brother as they wrestled on the floor. Caine quickly ran to grab El while Jack tried to take Ed away from his brother. But these two boys seemed to have monstrous strength that set the two boys who's trying to stop them fly.

I simply watched. Enjoyed the view like a wrestling fan that stays still. I admit I watched these kind of bone breaking events but I pity the players at the same time.

Now Ed was the one above El, strangling him on his neck as he gritted his teeth in craving his brother's death that made me felt a bit irritated. El was trying to find a way to make him loose, but Ed was determined enought to set him off.

That was where I felt that I didnt want to become a spectator anymore and wanted to do something although I don't care. I ran my way through the kitchen, looked around to find a knife. Quickly taking two of them as I opened the frige and grabbed the pitcher of Ice cold water running back to where those two are trying to kill each other and threw the content of the pitcher to them, making both stopped, gasping as they looked up at me. I threw the knives beside them that they both stared at with wonder. Now they looked alike.

"Don't show me that kind of stupid faces. Aren't you guys going to kill each other?" I placed both hands on my waist raising my eyebrows. "I'm just giving you a shortcut. Go ahead, pick one and stab each other for a quick stop." I said tolerating their madness in the livingroom.

Both looked at me and gave a sigh. Ed scoffed and collapsed his body on the floor beside El intentionally while El sat up and brushed his hair with his right hand.

"Did you just brought a mother?" Ed asked his brother.

"Just shut up Ed. Just shut up." El said back frustrated.

Ed laughed. "Now your casual."

I sighed together with Caine and Jack. "What if they didn't stop and took the knife to actually kill one another?" Caine asked.

"Hallelujah." I chanted. "I will prepare the finest coffin as a token of thanks." I sarcastically said making my way back to my seat and laid my dizzy head. I groaned massaging my forehead while the two brothers fixed themselves.

"Forgive me for acting without thinking that you weren't feeling well miss Lewis." El started.

"Jeez. Are you drunk?" Ed asked.

I closed my eyes. "Leave me alone." I uttered dropping my head on the couch feeling the comfortable soft cushion not caring about those people watching my sleep. "I think the discussion's done so its just reasonable to give me some rest after the headache that you did."

"Jack, Caine." I heard El said.

I suddenly felt someone lifting me up from the couch making me open my eyes to find Jack carrying me as he began to walk. "Put me down... Its giving me motion sickness..." I said.

"Don't sleep on the couch, that's not a good sight." Jack said back.

"I can carry you if you want." Caine added amused. "Nice one about stopping those two beast, they always have that kind of greeting everytime they see each other and no one can stop them that's why they always end up having fractures."

"They're annoying. Reminds me of my parents who always move their mouth carelessly." I said.

"We couldn't agree more." Jack and Caine agreed.

I held my forehead and sighed. The head ache is getting me all stupid with thoughts I'd made. Just lucky that I'm still in the right mind to think about reverse psychology. And I'm thankful that they know what I am trying to imply than stab each other like stupid animals.

"Oh, have we informed you yet?" Caine asked.

"About what?" I asked.

"Well, about me and Jack becoming your personal guards." He answered.

"Why?" The surprise tone on my voice didn't manifest but I knew that I was shocked by his news.

"Because someone's after your life." Jack replied.

Another revelation. "Why?" I asked again.

"Because you're rich... Obviously." I could imagine Caine roll his eyes as he sarcastically answered my question.

"Why?" I asked again to know why they would become my personal guards. I'm not used about people putting their life on the line for me, but I'm used being chased to death after what happened three years ago.

"Is that all the question you have to ask?"

I didn't reply since my head was too complicated to be thinking for a sentence to say. Why does my head started aching now? Its not like I drank some beer this morning. It just doesn't feel right.

"Just let her sleep Caine." Jack answered for me until we reached my room. Caine opened it as Jack fit us inside the door until he lay me down on my bed feeling the soft mattress that made me move sideways and felt my weight on the soft bed.

"Can I sleep now?" I asked.
