COLD AND BLANK.
By Queen Mary
After taking her bath Crystal walked out of the bathroom, Jimmy was standing outside.
“Jesus don’t you even know how to knock, what if I was n@ked” Crystal asked putting one hand on her che$t.
“Fortunately for both of us you are not” Jimmy said.
“What do you want” Crystal asked packing her hair with a black hair band.
“I just wanna ask how you are feeling” He said smiling nervously, Crystal became suspicious already and burrowed her eyebrows at him.
“Spill it Jimmy, what have you done”
“Well please don’t tell Xander, he’ll kill me if he knows what I did”
“Okay no telling. Speak”
“Well you know yesterday afternoon I dared you to eat some chicken that was just almost on the verge”
“Yeah sure and I did which is now giving me some silly upset that I can’t explain”
“Yeah about that Loretta, I think I know why. I checked the website of the restaurant where I brought the chicken and it was reported that most of the people who bought the chicken had fallen sick and some of them died. The chicken seemed to be p0isoned” Jimmy explained.
“WHAT THE B.UTT, JIMMY YOU GAVE ME P0IS0NED CHICKEN. YOU SON OF A F0WL” Crystal yelled.
“Shhhh, Xander mustn’t hear you. Please let’s just go to the hospital as fast as possible before the poisons starts to set in”
“Okay fast let’s….” Crystal stopped and touched her stomach, she felt it twitch and a headache follows making her head spin around.
“Loretta are you okay” Jimmy asked.
“Yeah yes am okay. I just just” Crystal stammered and fell to the ground, her eyes shutting slowly.
“God knows am dead” Jimmy said and pulled Crystal up, Xander walks in.
“What’s going on here” He said and looked at unconscious Crystal.
“Loretta…. what happened to her” He said and lifted her up carrying her bridal style.
“I don’t know she just fainted, must be the chicken”
“What Chicken” Xander asked carrying her out.
“Well yesterday she brought some chicken home, I guess the chicken she bought was poisoned” Jimmy said.
“Just pass me my car keys” Xander said and carried her to the car.
Xander walked around the hospital hall, his mind drifting to a lot of things.
“What are you doing here, did you come to check me” A female voice said from behind. He looked back and saw it was his step mother.
“Hi Gold” He greeted and she flashed a se.ducing smile at him.
“You really are handsome” She complimented in a s*xy way. Xander noticed it but decided to wave it as just compliment.
“So what are you doing here, where’s Leonard”
“Well your father seems busy that’s why and am here for my usual check up. Have been feeling funny lately” She said and giggled. Ewww
A doctor came out to Xander and Xander thanked the Lord for saving him from the wtch besides him.
“How’s she Doctor ”
“Well she’s going to be okay and she was not poisoned fortunately. Her tests results would be out soon in the next 3 minutes. Same as yours Mrs Leonard” The doctor said to Gold.
“You both can have your seat over there. Loretta would be out soon before or after the test results are out. Anytime she wakes up” The doctor said and left.
Minutes later a young lady, whom Xander couldn’t help but be amazed by how clumsy she looked considering the facts she was a nurse.
“Hi am nurse Jane” She said and made a sneeze on Gold.
“Am sorry am so sorry” She apologized. Gold looked at her angrily, she was going to insult but then Xander was sitting besides her. She only glared at her and replaced it with a wicked smile
“So here are your test results, congratulations Mrs Leonard you’re 2 weeks pregn@nt” An exciting noise that almost deafened Xander’s ears was heard.
“And Sir, Loretta is just tired that’s all. No poisoning or anything just tired” She said and gave them the results.
Gold looked really happy but she was confused too, how could she be pregn@nt when she’s been having protected sx. Well tests results don’t lie.
“Xander” Crystal soft voice said from the door. She was looking really sick and pale.
“Loretta” Xander said and stood up. He looked at her eyes and hugged her.
“You going to be okay” Xander said soothing her hair. Gold stood up and walked to Crystal.
“Hey dare don’t worry you going to be okay” She said to Crystal.
Crystal looked at her and glared at her, Gold noticed it and became confused.
Why was she glaring, does she know she was fl!rting with Xander.
Crystal looked away from Gold irritated, how can a woman not recognize her own daughter, even though it’s been 5 years and Crystal’s face and body had taken a serious change that doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be able to recognize her.
“Look Loretta am….”
“STAY AWAY FROM ME BTCH” Crystal yelled at her. Xander was shocked at the new turn of event. Gold was now angry and felt insulted big time.
“How dare you call me btch. You brat” She said and raised raised her hand to sl@p Crystal but Crystal held it and smiled.
“Not this time around” She said slowly and sl@pped her mother so hard Gold fell to the ground. Xander was above shocked, he had never seen this side of Crystal before. He had seen her stubborn side, angry side but he had never seen her vi0lent side that attacks a woman old enough to be her mother.
“Loretta you have to calm down. What you are doing is wrong”
“Oh so now what am doing is wrong. Fine” Crystal said and walked out not before giving her mother a deadly glare warning her to stay away from her.
“Loretta calm down” Xander said running after her.
“Stay away from me Xander, you shouldn’t have brought me to the fking hospital in the first place ” Crystal replied and gets pulled back by Xander.
“Loretta what’s going on with you. I don’t seem to understand you anymore” Xander asked.
“I can’t do this anymore Xander, I don’t wanna hurt you like this. You’re a nice guy and you deserve better. You won’t understand what am saying now and I pray you never don’t. No matter how I try and no matter how I want we can’t be together so just stay away from me”
“Why, how do you even want me to do it when you know I can’t. The more you push me away, the more I come closer. We both know what we want so why are you hurting us”
“Us??, Xander there’s nothing like “Us” , we just had fun that’s all, don’t mistake fun for something real” She said and took a deep breath sending back the tears that threatened to fall.
“Loretta why are you even saying all this” He asked
“Because I just found out am madly in love with you against my own fking will and I hate myself for that ” She thought to herself.
“Because I just found out that we are living a lie” Crystal replied.
“Loretta I don’t understand”
“Bye Xander” Crystal said and turned.
“Loretta don’t go…. please ” He said but she had entered a cab and left already.
He turned around frustrated at what just happened, from a distance he saw an old woman. The same old woman who asked him not to lose the one Crystal he had.
He felt like going to her and asking her what she meant but the way he was feeling at the moment couldn’t even make his legs move.
Crystal entered her mansion with a heavy heart, she had just done something terrible but it was for their own good. Xander was in love with Loretta Gates, the good girl who can’t even kill a fly not Crystal the bad btch, the perfect a$$assin and also the murderer of many men.
Slowly slowly Crystal was forgetting who she really was because of Xander’s love and it was not something good. She didn’t plan in falling in love but she already, did and if Xander finds out who she really is it would hurt both of them, she might be forced to do something bad to Xander and she didn’t want that.
Her mom was another reason she left, she knew that a time will come when the btch will finally recognize her and tell everyone she’s Crystal, which is really bad for business so she just had to leave.
Gold paces around her room angrily, how could that little brat sl@p her. She was going to make her pay and she would make her through Xander.
Crystal and Dina walked into the mall, Dina was the one doing most of the shopping while Crystal mind was drifted away from whatever was happening.
It’s been just 3 hours since she came back and she hasn’t said anything to Dina except let’s go shopping.
“Crystal the boss wants to talk you. He says there’s something you need to do. I told him you’ve stopped this mission, am really glad you did” Dina said. Crystal looked at her and smiled, her smile turned to a frown automatically, immediately when she sees a snake in human form standing in front of her.
“So the husband snatcher is here” Stella said and laughs.
“Stella you really should leave now before I break your nose” Crystal threatened.
“Ooooohhhh. Am scared you gonna do what, babe please come over someone wants to break my nose” She said and Carlos walked in.
Crystal was surprised to see him but then again she wasn’t, she just looked at him and smiled.
“I heard you the btch stealing people’s husband” Carlossaid
“What did you call me??” Crystal asked.
Dina sat down enjoying the show, she knew too people might probably go to the hospital today.
“He called you bitch” Stella said. Crystal looked at her and hits her head on the table so hard she fainted.
Carlos was surprised and angry, he rushed to attack her but she held his hands and twisted it, Carlos yelled and yelled begging her to release it but she made sure she heard the sound of the arm breaking before she pu.nched him and he lost consciousness.
“Have been wanting to do that for years now” She said and walked outside, Dina smiled and followed.
Crystal entered the the secret headquarters and then walked in to the boss’s office.
“You said I have a new mission” She said.
“Not really a new mission, I could have given it to another person but I think it would be more easier if you do it”
“Xander. You’ll have to kill him”
“What” Crystal said surprised and mostly shocked.
