⚔️The beautiful killer⚔️

Chapter 15✓

“Mia,what are you doing?” I heard Darrel asked and my heart nearly popped out of my chest.
I slowly turned to see him walking to me.


“I..i..i it’s a beautiful night” I said with my heart beating fast.
“Ohh.. really? But i heard you talking” He said.
“Yeah…i was telling myself how beautiful the night is” I said praying Anne won’t make a sound where she is.

He stared at me for a while, looking like he doesn’t believe me.
I sighed when i noticed my forehead is starting to get hot.

“I didn’t heard you knock” I forced a smile.
“I did, severally but i guess you were engrossed in staring out at the beautiful night” He sighed.
“I guess so” I said.

“I’m here to have your contact” He said.
“That could have wait till tomorrow” I found myself saying.
“I know but it’s for your safety. That assassin do pop up at anytime” He said.

“OMG!” I gasped, faking huge fear.
“Don’t be scared,she won’t hurt you. I’m the one she’s after but in case you notice anything,you give me a call or message me instantly okay?”
“Okay” I said and grabbed my phone.

We exchanged contact while i kept feigning fear.
“Com’on don’t be scared okay? I never planned to scare you but i just had to make sure everyone will be safe”
“Okay thanks” I said.

“Are you starting to wish you didn’t apply for the job?” He asked and i shook my head.
“No..I’m not regretting that i took the job. I’m just worried for our lives” I said.
“It’ll be fine. Everything is gonna end once i capture the assassin”
“I hope you can do that soon” I said.
“Of course i will” He said.

“I will leave you to sleep” He said and started walking to the door, i walked after him.
“Goodnight” i said when he walked out of the door.
“Goodnight Mia” He said and i closed the door and bolted it immediately.

How could i forgot to bolt the door.
Now he’ll start suspecting my every move.
He looked like he didn’t believe what i said.

I turned and saw Anne,by my window,ready to jump in.
I sighed.

“Hey bestie” She said and jumped into my room.
She’s on her ninja outfit but she’s not putting on mask which i found risky.
She’s holding a large paper bag and i wonder how she climbed the wall with that.

“What’s up?” I asked.
“I’m fine,that dude is indeed smart” She said, settling herself on my bed.
“You mustn’t relax completely and try to keep your voice low” I said and she nodded.
“Nice room” She said.
“Thanks” I smiled and went to sit beside her.

“The house feels so boring without you” She said.
“I wish i can kill him and come home soon” I said slowly.
“Me too but boss knows best. So how was your stay here today?” She asked.
“Fine, incredibly fine. The gate keeper made my day” I said.
“Yeah and Darrel is also a nice person” I said and she sighed.

“What?” I asked.
“Nothing,i just feel like not leaving anymore. I want to be here with you” She said and i giggled.
“Com’on,three months is not far,just some weeks and I’m done”

She shrugged “Okay..i brought some of your wigs along too”
“Ohh.. thanks” I said and emptied the contents of the paper bag on the bed.

Boots,ninja outfit,wigs, pistols and bullets…

“Woah! I’m sure i won’t exhaust this bullets till I’m back home” I said.
“You might, you’ll need enough bullets to blow off Darrel’s Holden brain” She whispered and i laughed.

“Mia,is everything okay?” Darrel suddenly asked, startling the day living out of Anne and i.
“OMG!” Anne exclaimed and quickly stood up .

“I’m fine Darrel,I’m watching a movie” I said loudly.
“Do you have a TV in your room?” He asked.
“Geez” Anne trembled.
“Nah! On my phone” I said.
“Ohh…Okay” He said and i heard his footsteps fade away.

“Damn!” I sighed in relief.
“I need to go” She said and turned back to the window.
“Okay,bye” I said and watched her connect the rope.
“Bye” She waved and started sliding down the rope.

I watched her till she got into the car and drove off.

I sighed in relief and sat back on the bed.
I wish she could stay longer…how come Darrel hasn’t sleep yet.
He’s definitely a supernatural being!

I glanced at the content on the bed and smiled.
I need to hide them..

I opened an empty drawer and packed everything in it.
I locked it and held the key in my hand.

I walked into the bathroom and opened the cabinet.
I hid the key in there and made to have my night bath.

Minutes later,i crawled under the blanket and switched off the light.
I love to sleep in total darkness but here i need to be at alert.

I switched on the bedside lamp and closed my eyes.

🍥Next morning🍥

⚔️Darrel’s POV⚔️

I opened my eyes and yawned widely.
I laid still in bed,i don’t feel like getting out of bed anytime from now but i gotta check if everyone is okay.

We’re all not safe in this house…
I sighed and then sat up on the bed.
I switched off my bedside lamp and glanced out of the window.

Nathaniel is at his duty post, obviously okay, looking as vibrant as ever.
Okay,i should go check on Mia too.

I stepped out of the bed in my robe and made for the bathroom.
I stood in front of the sink and grabbed my toothbrush and paste.
I started brushing my teeth.

Looking at my reflection in the mirror,i saw how disheveled my hair was.
I dipped my fingers into it and tried to straightened it..

I should know that won’t work,my hair is always in compliance with my comb or hairbrush but not my fingers.
I finished brushing and then rinsed my mouth.

I splashed some water on my face and then picked a hand towel on the towel rack.
I wiped my face with it before walking back to my room.

I picked my hair comb and combed my hair.
Looking a bit better.
I dropped the comb and slide my feet into my footwear,i tightened my robe before walking out of my room.

I closed the door behind me and made for Mia’s door.

“Mia” I called, while knocking.
I waited for a response but didn’t get one.
“Mia” I called, knocking severally.
Same thing!

Has something happened to her.
I pushed her door opened and walked in.
She isn’t in her room and i can’t hear shower running.

I walked out of her room and glanced round the passage.
I noticed it’s looking clean and sparkly.

She has started work already.

I smiled and hurried down the stairs.
I got to the living room and breathed in.

How come the living room is looking more beautiful this morning.
Mia cleaned it too?
I know it’s her job but wow…

Where’s she?
I need to commend her.

I heard some sounds in the kitchen followed by a delicious aroma.
“Umm” I smiled and walked to the kitchen.

She was backing me but i could clearly see how she expertly flipped a golden pancake on a flat plate,she added bacon and made to fry more.

“Good morning Mia” I said and she turned.
“Good morning” She smiled.
“How was your night?” I asked.
“Fine” She said.
“I can see you’ve cleaned the whole house,that’s so hardworking of you” I said.
“Thank you” She said and quickly turned back to the pancake.
Her long brown golden hair flipped in the process.

She was putting on a white tank top and pink knee-length skirt.
She has an amazing shape though.

“You’re making breakfast already,i should better go have my bath” I said.
“Okay” She said.


I washed the dishes in the sink after we were done having breakfast.
The dishes were few so i was done in few minutes.

I wiped my hands on a napkin and then walked out of the kitchen.
Darrel was in the living room working on his laptop.

“I’ll be in my room,call on me if you need me” I said to him..
“Do you wanna do something in your room?” He asked,not removing his gaze from his laptop.
“Not really” I said.
“Then sit here and watch a movie instead of getting bored in your room” He said and i glanced at the TV.
Fashion show was on display…i don’t really have much love for fashion.

“Don’t you wanna watch a movie?” He asked.
“I do, thanks” I said and sat my butt on the couch.
“Permit me to change the channel” I said, picking up the remote control.
“Of course you can,i actually thought you would like this fashion show. I thought all female like fashion show” He said.

“Nah, not all female..” I said and changed the channel to my favorite.

I switched off the TV and got up from the couch.
I slide my feet into my slippers.
I need to go take a nap in my room.
Darrel and Nathan already left for where God knows.

I got to my room and walked in, shutting the door behind me.

I sat on the bed and picked my phone.

A new message…

💬 Mia,you have an assignment tonight.
Check your mail for the necessary information. 💌Boss

What if i hadn’t checked my phone.
Well…there’s no time to nap anymore,i need to get prepared.


It’s night already…i bolted my door after we were done with dinner and i made sure everywhere was dead silent before i walked into the bathroom to grab the key to the drawer.

I unlocked the drawer and brought out the necessary things I’m gonna need.

I started getting changed into my ninja outfit.

I grabbed my wig and wore it over my hair.
My boots came next and then my mask.
I loaded my pistol with bullets and dipped it into my ninja outfit.

I grabbed the rope and walked to the window.
A car is parked on the street for me already.

I connected the rope to the gate and was about sliding down.

“Mia” Darrel knocked heavily.


⚔️The beautiful killer⚔️

Chapter 16✓


I connected the rope to the gate and was about sliding down.

“Mia” Darrel knocked heavily.


I blew out a furious breathe.

“Yes, what do you want?” I answered.
“Can you open the door please?” He asked.


“I’m not dressed..i mean i’m not fully dressed. Please say whatever you wanna say” I said.
“Okay,fine. I’m about to go to bed and i needed to be sure if you were okay” He said and i sighed.
“I’m fine thanks” I said.
“Okay, goodnight” He said.
“Goodnight” I said and sighed in complete relief.

He kept disrupting and delaying my moves.

I made sure the rope was well connected.
I switched off the light and started sliding down with the aid of the thick rope.

I landed on my feet outside the gate and retrieved the rope.
It was folded neatly in my hand as i hurried to my car.

I checked the plate number and confirmed it was mine before opening the car door.
It was unlocked and the key is in the ignition.

I sat on the driver’s seat and closed the car door.
I twitched the key in the ignition and the car jerked into life.

I started driving slowly at first but the speed later on.


I parked my car outside the building I’m to assassinate a business woman named; Genevieve Ross.
She doesn’t live alone,she gat a gatekeeper and a house help.

I might just kill the gatekeeper if he proves stubborn.

I got down from the car and walked to the gate.
I knocked on it gently.
The gate opened and the gatekeeper appeared.

He gasped and quickly made to lock the gate but he wasn’t so fast.
I pushed the gate and entered quickly.

The gatekeeper rushed at me, trying to get me down with his weak punch.
I sent a flying kick to his stomach which made him collapse on the cold floor.

I shot his leg and hurried into the main house, ignoring his groan.
I walked into the living room and saw the house help holding a tray of glass cups,she was about exiting the living room when she sighted me.

She screamed in fear and the content she was holding fell, breaking into several pieces.
I got to her and made her unconscious by hitting her head with the butt of my pistol.

She fell to the floor,the broken glass tearing her exposed arm.

I glanced around and saw the stairs.
I quickly climbed it and pushed open the first door i saw.

Genevieve Ross was relaxed on the bed,busy with her phone and sipping her wine slowly.
Glancing at her room alone,i knew how wealthy she is.

She hasn’t noticed my presence..

“Genevieve Ross” I called and she glanced up.
“OMG” She screamed, holding tightly to her phone.

Sweat started trickling down her face…

“Hi” I said.
“You can have the whole money in my wardrobe” She said,in shivering voice.
“Why do people keep thinking i need money. I don’t need money. I’m an assassin!” I said.

“Ahh!” She screamed and started weeping.
I don’t have much time left..

I pointed my pistol at her and pulled the trigger.
Two bullets hit her forehead and that was the end of Genevieve Ross.
“Rest in peace” I smiled before hurrying out.

I got to the living room,the house help was still unconscious,she looks so young and looking at her brought back memories…sad memories..

I walked out of the house slowly.
I met the gatekeeper writhing in pain on the floor.

“You shouldn’t have tried to stand up to me” I said to him and walked out of the gate.
I got to my car and quickly got behind the wheels.

Mission accomplished.


I parked my car at a far distance from Darrel’s house.
I left the key in the ignition,grabbed my pistol and stepped out of the car.
I closed the car door and started walking to the house.

I tucked my pistol in my outfit and started climbing the building.
I’ve climbed this building severally but I’ve always headed to Darrel’s room,now to my room.

Things sure changes..

I got to my room and glanced around carefully before jumping into my opened window.
I sighed softly and closed the window,i drew the curtain closed too.

I switched on the light and sat on the bed.
I pulled off my mask and wig and then smiled.

I picked my phone up and quickly texted boss.

💬Mission accomplished..

The car should be taken away soon.
💌 Mia.

I pulled off my boots and then got back on my feet.

I walked to the wardrobe,pulled it open and grabbed my pajamas.

Time to sleep.

🍥🍥Next morning🍥🍥

I already got up early to do my chores.
I was fixing breakfast in the kitchen when i heard Darrel’s footsteps.

He’s awake.

“I met you in the kitchen again this morning” He said.
I turned..

He looks more cute in the morning with his disheveled hair and the white robe that’s always tightened round his huge body.

“Good morning” I said.
“Good morning. Do you wake up in the midnight to do chores cause i met everywhere looking so clean again” He said.

I smiled..”I don’t wake up in the middle of the night,i do wake up at dawn”
“Please try to be getting more sleep okay? You can wake up at anytime to do chores” He said.
“Thanks but I’m used to it already,I’ve been a housekeeper for a long time” I said almost pinching myself.

“Wow! ,the guys will be here tomorrow. Make sure you demand for a huge salary okay? If they can’t afford it,I’ll pay it” He said.
“Thanks so much” I smiled.
“Its fine…So,what are you making for breakfast?” He asked.
“Bread and jam with coffee,do you want anything different?” I asked.
“No,I’m fine with that” He said.
“It’ll be ready soon. Kindly go take your bath” i said and he laughed.
“Okay ma’am” He said and walked away.

I smiled and turned back to what i was making.


We were seated in the living room, Nath joined us this time,he was keeping me busy with his talks while Darrel watched the TV.

“You shouldn’t have done that” I said to Nath, laughing hard.
“She would have spanked me on the butt” He said and i laughed more.

“Oh..my..God!” Darrel suddenly banged the table in anger, startling Nath and i in the process.
“What’s wrong?” Nath asked.

He was looking so furious as he pointed to the TV.


“How can she go about killing people like flies! That’s so cruel of her” Nath said and i smirked.
“Of course it is. I swear down,I’m gonna make sure i capture her. How can someone take pleasure in taking people’s lives” Darrel said, fuming.

I shifted and sat properly on the couch.
I didn’t utter a word as i watched Nath and Darrel display their contempt over what i did.

“Mia, don’t you think this is getting worst?” Nath asked.
“Uh..yes it is” I said.
“I’m gonna put in more effort in capturing her and it starts from now” Darrel said determinedly,stood up and walked away.

I sighed.


Well…I’m glad they are not dead.

“What’s wrong Mia?” Nath asked.
“I’m fine…I’m perfectly fine” I forced a smile.


I smiled.

I just got Darrel Holden mail from Robbie’s laptop.
Mia can’t just be having fun in his house!
I will make sure she goes through difficulties.

I’ll be sending him the location of anywhere Mia wants to go assassinate.
I want to see how long she’ll keep defeating him.

Im damn sure he’s gonna capture her someday soon and throw her ass in the cell.

I laughed and bounced happily on my bed.

⚔️The beautiful killer⚔️🧱🗡️🔪🔫

Chapter 17✓


Images flooded my closed eyes, i kept turning and sweating in my bed as my words kept echoing in my ears.


My eyes popped open and i quickly sat up on the bed breathing heavily.
Sweat trickled down my face and i noticed my hands were gripping the bed sheet tightly.

Why can’t i just format this whole memory.
Why does it keep haunting me. Ive always tried to let go but it keep popping up.

I sighed and released my tight hold on the bedsheet.
Sunlight streamed into my room, making a line across my bed.

It’s morning already…i should get ready for chores..
I got up from the bed and stretched.

I walked into the bathroom and proceeded to the sink to brush my teeth.
I stared at my reflection in the big round mirror while i picked my toothbrush and paste.

I look horrible.

There are signs of sweat on my forehead and my eyes is not looking any better.
Well…after that nightmare,my bright eyes always turn dull.

I rinsed my toothbrush before applying some toothpaste on it,i started brushing my teeth, trying not to think about my childhood days..
I wish i was never given birth to..

I rinsed my mouth thoroughly after i was done brushing,i rinsed my toothbrush too and returned it to the cabinet.
I scooped some water in my palm and splashed it on my face,i did that severally until i was satisfied.

I wiped my face with one of the towels on the rail and then glanced back at my reflection in the mirror.
I look much better now.

I walked back to my room and packed my hair into a ponytail,slide my feet into my slippers and then walked out of my room.

I walked to the store and gathered the cleaning tools,i started my chores.

I walked back to my room to my room after i was done with the necessary chores.
I need to have my bath now, dress up and go make breakfast.

I picked my phone up and checked my mail for any message.


I dropped it and walked to the wardrobe,i pulled it opened and searched for what to wear.
Darrel said those guys were coming today.
I wouldn’t want to look like a shabby housekeeper.

I selected a black short gown with little crystals all over it,there are white buttons at the front down to the waist line. It’s an old design but do i care.
I opened my drawer to select my undies.
I shook my head when i sighted my red panties.

What has Darrel caused?
Will i be able to wear that panties again?

I selected my undies and placed it on the bed together with my dress before walking into the bathroom.


I sat on the stool already clad in my gown.
I was combing my hair when i heard my phone beeped.

A message.

I stood up and walked to my bed,i picked my phone and clicked on the message.


Call me when you’re not with the bull dog.

I signed.

💬 Com’on! He’s not a bulldog’ I was about typing but decided not to.
I cleared the message and dropped my phone on the bed.

I walked back to the stool and sat down.

Darrel is our enemy but that doesn’t make him a bulldog.
Well…i would have also referred to him as a bulldog if i had not known him better.
He’s a nice dude.

I picked my hair band and packed my hair into a ponytail before making it into a bun.
I stood up and and grabbed a pair of white slippers from the rack.
I gat three pairs of slippers…

Black and,
I do stay indoor except at night and i wear boots whenever i want to go for mission.

I slide my feet into my white slippers and glanced at the wall clock.

I hurried out of my room.
I need to start making breakfast before Darrel wakes up.

I descended from the stairs and headed straight to the kitchen.
I was surprised to find Darrel there already, backing me. He’s obviously making breakfast,plus he’s fully dressed.

Did i took long in dressing up?

Darrel turned as if already aware of my presence.
I got a full view of his outfit,white hoodie with dark blue jeans.
He doesn’t put effort in dressing yet he always look adorable.
His hair is styled differently and it gave his face a new handsome look.

He smiled. “I got to the kitchen before you this morning”
“Good morning” I said.
“Morning to you too” He said.
“What are you doing?” I asked.
“Making breakfast”
“Oh..no! You shouldn’t do that,I’m sorry i took so long this morning” I said and made to take over but he stopped me.

“You didn’t take long, i woke up very early instead.”
“Of course”
“But you shouldn’t make breakfast,it’s my work and I’ll be getting paid for it. I shouldn’t share it with anyone” I said.

“You didn’t force me to. I’m doing it willingly” He said.
I sighed..”Okay,now I’m here,I’ll do the rest”
“Nah! I’m almost done” He said.
“No, please just let me help with something” I said.
“Okay,I’m done with the eggs and bacon already,that’s the teapot over there. You can make the tea” He said.
“Okay” I said and got to work.


“How’s the breakfast, delicious right?” Darrel asked proudly and i laughed.
We were both seated in the dining having our breakfast.

He’s good in other things but definitely not cooking.

“Why are you laughing?” He asked.
“This breakfast is not near delicious but you tried a bit” I said.
“Ohh…I’m always bad in cooking” He frowned.
“You tried,for a guy” I said.
“Yeah” I gulped my tea.

“I should learn from you but starting from today,I’ll be a bit busy” He said.
“The assassin case right?”
“Yeah,I’ve already created an office in the house” He said.
“Yeah,i transformed an empty room to an office, I’ll show it to you later in the day” He said and i nodded.

“You done eating? I wanna clear the table” I said.
“Yeah,I’m done” he said and gulped the remaining tea in his teacup .
I stoop up and cleared the table to the kitchen.

I started washing the dishes,i placed them on the drainboard after i was done.
I rinsed the cups and wiped them before placing them back in their space.

I walked back to the dining room and wiped the table clean..


I didn’t find Darrel in the living room when i was done.
He might be in his office, devising plans on how to capture me when I’m right here in the same house with him.

So funny…

I got to my room and sat on the bed .
I picked my phone and started placing a call across Joel.
I’ve missed him though,his delicious meals especially.

📞Hi Mia..

📞Hey Joel” I said happily into the phone….


My sleep got disrupted by the knocks on my door.
“Come in” I said rubbing my palms over my eyes.
I was sitting up when the door opened.
Darrel walked in.

“The guys are here…oh,I’m sorry for interrupting your sleep. Go back to sleep,they won’t be leaving till mid-afternoon” He said and turned to leave.
“No..it’s fine,i was about waking up anyway. I’ve been sleeping for long” I said.
“Umm” He sighed.
“I’ll join them soon” I said.
“Okay” He said and walked out of the door.

I released another yawn as i stepped out of the bed.
The door suddenly opened again, startling me.


“I’m sorry but before you come downstairs, you’ll need to adjust your gown..up there” He said pointing to my chest.
I glanced at it and nearly gasped.
Three front buttons are opened, exposing a part of my left boob.


I quickly adjusted the buttons in embarrassment.
Why is he still standing there!

“And your hair too” He said before shutting the door.
I sighed and walked to the mirror.

This hair was in a ponytail before i slept..now look!

I groaned and grabbed my haircomb.
It’s looking fine now!
I decided not to pack it this time,i let it flow down my shoulders.

I slide my feet into my slippers and walked out of my room.
I descended the stairs slowly and finally got to the living room.

Three guys were seated on a couch,while Darrel sat opposite them.
He already served them drinks,they were chatting except one who looks sullen like he’s gonna burst anytime soon.

“Hi” I said and they all glanced up.
“Wow! Who’s she?” Edwin asked. I knew his name by the name tag on his shirt. He’s a CIA agent.
“She’s the housekeeper i told you about” Darrel said.
“Geez! I thought she was your girl” The second guy said. I glanced at his name tag,he goes by the name Luke.

Darrel smiled and motioned me to sit beside him.
I did.

“Why would you employ a lady as a live-in housekeeper?” The Sullen one said. He’s Steve according to his name tag.
“Why shouldn’t i ?” Darrel asked and i guess that rendered Steve speechless.

“Are you satisfied with how she works” Edwin asked Darrel.
“I’m more than satisfied” Darrel smiled.
“You’re beautiful..i mean,very beautiful” Luke gazed at me admiringly.
“Thanks” I said.
“How about we get to know each other better” Luke smiled.

“I’m Mia Cunnane…” I was saying but Steve interrupted me.

“I hope you did a background check on her before employing her,you can’t just employ anyone you want” He said.
“Of course i did and you can walk out of here if you wanna continue being mean” Darrel said.
“Like you own the house” Steve snickered.
“Ohh…” Darrel laughed. “If i should start talking about my owned properties in California,i bet you won’t remain seated there”

“You can go on and brag!” Steve said.
“Enough of this!” Edwin said.
I sighed.. it’s obvious this guy doesn’t like Darrel.
Should i just kill him..

“Mia,let’s discuss your pay” Edwin said.


“Thanks so much” I said.
We just finished discussing my monthly pay.
Not that i need the money anyway but i had to act excitedly.
“I hope you’re satisfied with it?” Darrel asked.
“Of course i am” I smiled.

“Agent Darrel,boss said you should report to him over the findings you’ve made” Edwin said.
“Okay,i will” Darrel said.
“Are you guys leaving now?” I asked.
“Yeah” Edwin.

“Please wait,lemme quickly fix lunch for you” I said.
“With all pleasure Mia” Luke smiled.
Edwin hesitated before nodding.
“You mean,you both wanna stay for a so called lunch!” Steve said.

“You can leave if you want to Steve” Luke said.
“It’s just gonna take few minutes,I’ll be right back” I said and started walking to the kitchen.
“Do you need my help?” Luke shouted after me.
“No, thanks” I said.

They were leaving after eating delicious meal i made for them
“That was a delicious meal” Edwin said as Darrel and i walked them to their car.
“Thanks” I said.
“You are beautiful plus you cook delicious meals,will you please marry me in the future?” Luke asked and i laughed.

“Luke!” Edwin scolded.
“Thanks for the meal Mia, looking forward to more” Luke said.

They all got into the car and we waved them bye.
Nath opened the gate widely and we watched their car leave the compound.

I breathed out and glanced at Darrel who stood with his hands in his pocket.
“Steve sure doesn’t like you” i said.
“He doesn’t,he threatened me the first day i arrived” He said.
“Woah! don’t you think you should report this to CIA leader” I said.
“I understand him. Truly. I made them look incompetent by coming to their rescue” He said.

If Steve had been in charge of my case,he would have been a dead meat by now.

“They wouldn’t have hired you if he was competent”
“Of course,come let me go show you my office” He smiled.

“Okay. Nath, come over for your lunch” I said loudly to Nath who was locking the gate .
He ran over immediately.
I handed the packed meal to him.

He always refuses to join us at the dining, saying he mustn’t leave his post.

“Thanks Mia” He said.
“I’ll join you outside soon okay?” I said.
“Okay” He smiled and walked away.

Darrel took my hand and we both headed into the house.


⚔️The beautiful killer⚔️

Chapter 18✓


“Wow…nice office” I smiled as we both walked into Darrel’s home office.
“Thanks” He smiled and went to sit on a new looking swivel chair.
“You ordered that?” I asked.
“Nah,i gat it from the store including this desk too” He said.

There are piles of books on the desk,two HP laptops;he was already working on one..
Files were arranged properly beside the stationery tray.
A desk lamp was placed just beside the second laptop.

He works at night??

The whole content on the desk were arranged neatly and i admired Darrel’s competence,even in arranging things.
My gaze switched to the wall, just behind his head, a wall planner was hung there.
There’s a waste bin too.

“How did you manage to create a beautiful office overnight?” I asked in amazement.
He smiled; Well, I’ve been on it for days,i just got to round it up today”

“Wow..it’s amazing” I said.
“Thanks” He said.

I noticed the two chairs opposite Darrel’s.

“Do you plan on inviting guests?” I asked.
“No,just you and Nath” He said and i smiled.
“Are we all going to be working together?” I asked.
“At times, though i love to work alone but I’ll be needing your ideas in some aspect” He said.


“This is where I’m gonna be spending most of my time now” He said.
“That’s fine,you’re so keen on capturing this assassin soon”
“Yeah…I’m afraid she’ll kill more people if i don’t capture her soon.” He said sadly.

“So how do you intend on doing that?” I asked and sat on one of the chairs opposite him.
“Im sorry, this is meant to be a private investigation. Only the CIA leader has the right to know about that” He said with a smile
“Of course…I’m just being curious” I forced a smile.

Why is he being so difficult!

“We look so much like business partners right now” He smiled.
“Yeah” I said.

“I should leave you to work” I said and stood up.
“Okay,you can come in here anytime you like”
I smiled and nodded.
“Work hard okay?” I said.
“Thanks” He said.

I walked out of his office and gently closed the door behind me.
I got to the living room and sat on a couch.

If only he had told me how he intended to capture me,I’ll start looking for ways to prevent it.
But he’s way too smart and strong-headed.

I need to go wash the dishes and go chat with Nath later.
I stood up and walked to the kitchen,i already placed the stained dishes in the sink.
I started washing them, thinking about how to get information from Darrel.

He won’t tell anyone a thing except to the CIA leader.
Should i just eavesdrop when he’s on the call with the CIA leader?

That won’t work.

He’s now very determined to capture me and I’m sure if he gets to carry out the plan he’s devising, it might weaken me.
I started rinsing the dishes and placing then on the drainboard.

I wiped my hand on the napkin after i was done.
I opened the fridge and brought out a chilled pack of juice with two glass cups.
I searched for cookies but couldn’t find any.

I will have to bake cakes and cookies tomorrow.

I placed them on a tray and walked out of the kitchen.
I headed to the door and pushed open with my leg.

Nath smiled and quickly grabbed out a chair for me when he saw me approaching.
He placed a stool in front of it too.
“Thanks” I smiled and sat down.
I placed the tray on the stool.

Nath sat opposite me grinning from ear to ear.
“I thought you weren’t gonna come again” He said starting to twist the cap of the juice.
“Darrel was showing me his home office and i must confess it looks great, even better than some real offices” I said.
“I’m not surprised cause agent Darrel is good at almost everything” He said and poured juice into our glass cups.

“Do you think he will succeed in capturing the assassin?” I asked Nath.
“I hope he does,because from what I’ve heard so far,that assassin kills anyone in charge of her case and it’s true cause she has been here and has attempted to kill agent Darrel severally”

“Really?” I feigned surprise.
“Yeah,but I’m not sure how long agent Darrel will keep surviving her attacks. I don’t want to loose him soon. I wish he’ll just quit and leave, that’ll be more better than him getting killed” He said sadly.
“Yeah, that’ll be much better” I said and sipped my juice.


It’s night already,I’m done making dinner but Darrel is still in his office.
He hasn’t stepped out since that afternoon.

I dished out some macroons and spiced chicken in a flat ceramic plate.
I picked a bottle of water from the fridge and a glass cup.
I placed everything on a tray and headed to Darrel’s office.

I opened the door and walked in,he was busy scribbling something on a notepad,his desk lamp was on.
“Your dinner is here” I said and placed the tray on his desk.
“Thanks” He said without glancing up.

I tried to peer into what he was scribbling but i couldn’t see it clearly.
It was some sort of address.

I turned and started walking to the door.
“Smells delicious,what’s in here?” He asked.
I turned back to him. He has stopped scribbling,he was looking at me now.
“Macroons with spiced chicken” I said.
“Wow” He smiled and gave me thumb up.

I smiled and walked out of his office.
I need to go serve Nath his too.
I sat down to eat my dinner after going to serve Nath.

Was he scribbling an address?
Where’s planning to go to?

I bit into my chicken and savoured the taste for a while before i resumed my thinking.

My head is just gonna explode if i don’t stop guessing what Darrel is planning.
I should enjoy my dinner, there’s more time to think.

I felt Darrel’s absence at the dining.
I’m not very used to eating alone,we were always eating together at Pine estate.

‘should i go join him in his office?’
“Hell no” I groaned at the thought.

I continued eating..


“Darrel are you done eating?” I asked loudly, standing outside his office door.
I wanna pack the dishes and wash them before going to bed.

“No Mia,I’ll clear the dishes myself once I’m done” He said.
“You sure?” I asked.
“Yeah and why don’t you wanna come in?”
“I don’t wanna disturb you” I said.
“Ohh..so you’re going to bed now?”
“Yeah…goodnight” I said.

I walked out of the bathroom in my pajamas after my night routine.
I sat on the bed and grabbed my phone from the stool.

I unlocked it and saw i had a new message.

💬Check your email Mia.
You have a mission for tomorrow night.

“Yaay!” I exclaimed happily.


A notification appeared on the screen of my laptop.
I clicked on it.

💌 Hey, I’ll be having a mission tomorrow night by 9pm at Bond street, building 8. I dare you to meet me there. 💌 Anonymous


I wiped my eyes and stared at the message once more.
This is real!
Gosh! Exactly what I’ve been expecting.

I swear down, I’ll make sure she goes down tomorrow night.
I’ve been waiting for her message and here it is.

I smiled and picked my phone…
I need to inform the CIA leader so he’ll send some back up with me tomorrow night.

He picked up the call at the second ring.

📞Hi, Mr Willmer.

📞Agent Darrel. Is anything wrong? It’s quite late.

📞Yes Sir,i just got a message from the assassin.

📞 What! Really?

📞Yes sir.

📞OMG! None of the past detectives has ever gotten a message from this assassin!

📞Well… I did,she already disclosed the location and time she’s gonna be assassinating tomorrow.

📞Wow! Are you sure it’s genuine.

📞Yes sir,it is. I’ll need some backup. I will make sure she goes down tomorrow” i said determinedly.

📞I’ll be very happy if you can do that,I’ll get back to you tomorrow.

📞Okay sir,have a good night” I said and disconnected the call.

I smiled and dropped my phone.
I bet she’s not aware that I’ll be coming with backup.
I really wanna see how she’ll be able to defeat everyone tomorrow.

I pressed the power button on my laptop and watched it go dark.
I closed it and then stood up from the chair…

I stretched and yawned.
I’m starting to feel sleepy already.

I picked the tray and walked out of my office.
I’m so proud of myself to be able to construct a office with just an empty room.

Good job Darrel!

I closed the door behind me and took my dinner tray to the kitchen.
I actually felt Mia’s absence when i ate alone in my office and i nearly invited her to join me but then i thought against it.

I don’t want to believe I’m starting to get fond of her.
She has spent just two days here!
Get back to your senses Darrel.

I washed my dish in the sink and kept it back in its place.
I wiped my hands off a clean napkin before walking out of the kitchen.

I started climbing the stairs to my room wondering why Katy hasn’t called me yet.
Eric called me earlier today but Katy hasn’t,she hasn’t called me since she told me Mia is a criminal.

Is she pissed at me?

I should give her a call tomorrow but i can’t,I’ll need to prepare hard against tomorrow night.
I opened the door to my room and walked in.

I jumped on my bed..

How could you sleep without performing your night routine Darrel.

I groaned and reluctantly got up from my bed.
I headed straight for the bathroom.

⚔️The beautiful killer⚔️

Chapter 19


“Mia,do you want to go with me for morning jog?” I heard Darrel asked behind me.
I was preparing breakfast in the kitchen.
I switched off the gas cooker before turning to him.
He’s clad in a jogging suit and his hair was packed into a ponytail.

“Morning Jog?” I asked.
“Do you do it before?”
“No,but i have to do it today” He said.
“Why?” I asked.
“Umm…i would love to keep the reason to myself. Do you wanna come along?” He asked.

“Nah” I said.
“Okay,see ya” He said and walked away.
I watched him till he walked out of the door.

What’s up with him?
He was looking like someone whose plan already worked out.
Is he about to succeed in his plan to capture me?

I dropped the spoon i was holding and hurried to his office.
I made sure i heard the gate close before opening the door.
I walked in and quickly glanced around for a CCTV and i was glad i didn’t see any.

I walked to his table and opened the laptop he was working on yesterday.
I pressed the power button and it came into life.

I bit my lower lip as the damn thing requested for a password.
I wish Robbie was here,he would have hacked into this damn thing.

I sighed and started opening the notepads on his desk,there’s nothing about me there.
Nothing at all.

Is he not working on my case?
How come there’s nothing about me.
Every damn thing will sure be on this laptop.
Darrel is too smart to keep things in notepads.

Then what was he scribbling yesternight.
I continued my search and saw a familiar address on one of the note pads.

This is the home address of the couple i assassinated a month ago.
He wants to go make findings. I bet he would find none.
I do sealed job, nothing is always exposed.

Keep searching Mia.
I didn’t find any more important thing in the books.
By now,the books were already scattered.
I started arranging it.

I proceeded to the files when i was done arranging the books.
I started opening the files one after the other.

Mia, aren’t you taking long here.

A file nearly dropped off my hands when i heard the sound of the gate.
Oh my god!
I started arranging the files back in it’s place with immediate effect.

I pressed the power button on the laptop and didn’t wait for it to go off completely before closing it.
I rushed out of the office and ran to the kitchen.

I breathed in and out as i switched on the gas cooker.
I adjusted my chef cap and apron trying to appear as normal as possible.

I heard the door opened and i was expecting him to show up at the kitchen immediately but he didn’t.
I continued with the breakfast i was making.

“Mia,did you go into my office?” I suddenly heard behind me.
My heart beat accelerated and i tried to wear a smile as i turned around.

“Yes Darrel” I said.
“To clean right?” He asked.
“Exactly” I said, hiding my relief.

He dabbed the sweat on his face with his face towel.
Even though his hair was packed in a ponytail,some strands clung to his forehead, looking more dark with sweat.

Now I’m convinced that Darrel can be cute with even a bald head.

He opened the fridge and grabbed a chilled bottle of water for himself.
He twisted the cap and gulped the whole water down his throat.

“Woah…you finished that?” I asked and he smiled.
“Yeah” He threw the empty bottle in the waste bin outside the kitchen.
“Breakfast isn’t ready yet?” He asked hungrily.
“Yeah, it’ll be ready before you finish freshening up” I said.
“I better go do that then” He said and walked out of the kitchen.

I sighed.


“I’ll be going to the CIA office once I’m done with my breakfast” Darrel said and i almost asked why.
“Okay,i hope everything is fine?” I asked.
“Sure” He said with his mouth full.
I nodded and faced my breakfast,i keep having this feeling that something isn’t right.

“Where did you learn how to cook delicious meals?” He asked.
“My older brother is a chef” I said.

Joel is a chef… isn’t he?

“Wow,i would love to meet him someday” He said.
“Of course you will”… I said
‘after you’re dead’ I added inwardly.

“Am i good to go?” Darrel asked walking into the living room.
I’m watching a movie after i was done with the dishes.

“Yeah,you look perfect” I said.
“Thanks,do you wanna come along?” He asked.
“To the CIA office?” I asked.
“Nath will be coming along too,i don’t want to feel lonely and bored” He said.

“Thanks but I’ll be fine,the TV will serve as a company” I said.
“Are you sure?” He asked.
“Yeah?” I smiled,glad that I’ll have some time to practice for my mission tonight.
“Okay bye. I’ll make sure we don’t stay long”
“Alright bye” I said and watched him walked out of the door.

I sat impatiently, waiting to hear the sound of his car drive out.
It finally did.
I rushed to the door and pulled it open a bit.

I watched as the gate closed automatically.

“They are gone” I jumped around and started practicing immediately.

I walked out of the bathroom after taking a cold bath.
It’s 4pm already, they’re not back yet.
I’ve stopped practicing hours ago.
I feel so strengthened now..I’m ready for anything that might come my way.

I got my body into a simple wear and i just combed down my hair.
I wore my slippers and walked out of my room.

The house was dead silent..
I already prepared lunch,i was waiting for them to get back before eating but i can’t wait anymore.

I walked into the kitchen and brought out the lunch from the fridge.
I switched on the microwave and placed it on a timer before pushing the meal inside.
I closed it and walked to the living room.

How could i leave the TV on?

I sat on the couch and watched it anyway.
I heard their car drove into the compound at the same time the timer went off.
I rushed to the kitchen and quickly switched off the microwave.

I brought out the meal which was now steaming hot.

Good thing they are back…
I didn’t wait in vain.

“I’m home” Darrel shouted from the living room.
“Welcome home” I said loudly and started dishing out our late lunch.



I sniffed as Eric patted my back.
“Com’on Katy,he didn’t called you for days doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about you” Eric said to me.

“He doesn’t! He refused to call me ever since i warned him about the live-in housekeeper he was about to employ” I said.
“No, he told me the housekeeper is no criminal. He interviewed her before employing her. She’s just a private person who doesn’t like exposing her personal information”

“All private person has one or two things they hide,most of the things hidden things are always bad!” I said and adjusted in my seat.
“Well…that’s thoughtful of you,I’ll inform Darrel about that”
“I’m not even concerned about that, how could Darrel not call me or text me for the past two days” I expressed my hurt.

“You know how Darrel is once he’s buried in work,he doesn’t think of other things. I’ve also been calling him but he’s not picking”

That’s true..
Darrel doesn’t think about anything else once he’s buried in work, he’s probably working hard in capturing the assassin so he could return to California soon.
I shouldn’t be pissed at him.

” I already texted him and i hope he replies soon” Eric said and i nodded.
“Thanks Eric. I will text him too” I said.
“Good,I’ll return back to my seat” He smiled and walked away.

💬Darrel….” I was texting him when i saw Eric walking back to my table.

“Look” He smiled stretching his phone to me.
I took it and stared at the screen.

💬Buddy, I’m sorry I’ve not been picking your calls.
I’ve been busy.
How are you? And how’s Katy doing. I’ve missed her,I’m gonna give her a call tomorrow. 💌Darrel.

My lips spread in a wide grin and Eric chuckled.

💥 Back in New York 💥


I walked into my room after bidding Darrel a good night.
I quickly bolted my door and hurried to the bathroom.
I grabbed the key from the cabinet and walked back to my room.

I need to start getting ready for my mission tonight.

I unlocked my drawer and brought out the necessary things.
I started dressing up in my adorable ninja out.
I feel happy whenever I’m putting it on.
I loaded my pistol with enough bullets,and pulled on a red wig over my hair.
I wore my mask too,then my boots.


I was about connecting the rope to the gate when i heard the gate opened,the sound of a car driving out came next.

It’s Darrel’s car.
Where’s he driving to?
He might want to get something.

I watched him drive past my car which was already parked there at a corner.
I made sure he had driven far before connecting the rope to the gate.

I slide down the rope and landed on my feet.
I disconnected the rope and speedily ran to my car.
I opened the car door and got in,i twisted the key in the ignition and the car jerked to life.

“Bond street” I said and started following the direction of the Google map.


I’ll be assassinating Mr Rousey at building 8 but i parked in front of building one .
I don’t usually park in front of the exact buildings.

I stepped out of the car and locked it immediately.
I sighted building 8 from a distance and started walking towards it.

I was contemplating on climbing the wall or going through the gate when a bad aura washed over me.
I turned and was shocked to see almost ten cops standing behind me and pointing a gun at me.

I smiled and turned back to the gate, almost five cops already appeared in front of me and i was more shocked to see Darrel among them.
How did he got the information?
I jerked back to reality when he spoke up.

“Surrender now!” Darrel said loudly and i nearly laughed.
Pistols were being pointed at me.

I hope Darrel already informed them that I’m putting on bulletproof,else they are all gonna waste their bullets tonight .
I walked closer to the gate ignoring them all.
They started shooting as i expected but none of their bullets affected me.

The gate is opened already and i stepped in.
I have nine bullets in my gun,two will be for Mr Rousey
There are almost twenty cops here,I’m just gonna kill seven of them with my pistol,I’ll handle the rest with my fist but i have to go accomplish my mission first.

I quickly locked the gate after me and left the fools shooting at the gate.
I rushed into the apartment of Mr Rousey and i bolted the door immediately.
I couldn’t find anyone in the little living room,there are just two bedrooms in the house as i was told.

I walked into the centre of the living room and saw two doors facing me..
I quickly pushed one of the doors open when i heard the cops starting to jump into the compound and trying to break down the door.
My guess was right.. I saw Mr Rousey walking out of his bathroom,unclad.

His eyes widened and his breathing hitched when he saw me.
I didn’t waste any time before shooting at him.

Those cops are damn fool!
They should have gotten him out before i got here.
Even if they got him out,I’ll still succeed in assassinating him.

I heard the door broke down,and heavy footsteps grew nearer.
I quickly climbed onto the nearest bedroom stool and pushed one of the ceiling boards,it gave way and i climbed through the opening,then returned the ceiling board to it’s place.
I crawled towards the farthest end of the building, looked out to see if anyone was around.

I climbed down the wall,using the openings i found.

I landed outside the gate on my feet.kindly hi kwaku on+233544142683 to read more and exciting stories from his story story page.
I was about running to my car when four CIA agents surrounded me, pointing their pistols at me.

I scanned their faces…Darrel wasn’t among them but i know he’ll be somewhere close.
Steve was the only one i recognised among them and i smiled.
This might just be the opportunity to kill him but then i saw some cops running towards me, shooting at an alarming rate.
I released my remaining bullets on seven of them,they collapsed immediately.

The rest ran off..

I tucked my pistol in my ninja outfit and decided to fight the four CIA agents with my fist.
I threw one of them a punch in the mouth and i was so disappointed to see him fall like a weightless being.

The remaining three rushed at me but i quickly stopped them with my boot.
I raised Steve up with his CIA uniform and used him as a painful whip for the other two agents.
They fell on the floor, groaning.
I picked one of their pistols and shot two of them,they died instantly.

“Please don’t kill me,i swear i will quit being a CIA agent. I beg of you” Steve pleaded and i laughed.
I hit the pistol on his head and watched him sway helplessly to the floor.

I heard gunshot from a distance..
Why can’t they all come out and face me.

I started walking to my car but stopped when i saw two CIA agents appeared from a corner.
They pointed the guns at me.
I looked at them closely and saw it was Luke and Edwin.

I should kill them immediately but they deserve to live cause they were nice to me.
“Your hands up” Luke said.

If only he knew it was his crush…haha.

I kicked Edwin in the stomach and grabbed Luke by the neck.
I saw Edwin trying to shoot at me from the floor.
I quickly raised Luke and slammed him hard on Edwin’s body.

I grinned and headed to my car..
I looked around wondering where the rest of them were.


I unlocked my car and got in,i closed the door and inserted the key in the ignition.
My hands were already on the wheel,i glanced up to start driving only to see Darrel standing in front of my car,he was pointing a pistol at me,with his forehead bleeding heavily.

Am i the one that hurt him?
No,i didn’t.

“Get down” He said slowly in his weak voice.

Darrel move away or I’m just gonna kill you.

⚔️The beautiful killer⚔️

Chapter 20✓


Darrel move away or I’m just gonna kill you.

He started moving to my car door.
I wind down the window and pushed him away with my strength.
He fell on the floor with a thud and i don’t know why i felt sorry for him.
I don’t know why i almost got out of the car to help him up.

I groaned and started driving away at a full speed.
This car needs a new spray and a change of plate number.
They would have taken my car pictures and that’s what will be their target now.

I sighed as i swerved my car in another direction.
How did Darrel found out about my mission tonight?
If only i was able to access his laptop,i would have found the source of the information.

🖲️Mia’ Boss said through the ear connection.
🖲️Boss,mission accomplished. Did you informed Darrel about my mission tonight?
🖲️I definitely did not. I don’t know who did but Robbie is looking into it now.
🖲️Okay boss.
🖲️It was late before we found out,we should have informed you beforehand but i know you’re always up to the task.
🖲️Of course boss.
🖲️I hope you’re not hurt?
🖲️Not at all boss,I’ll need a new ninja outfit and new sets of wigs.
🖲️Okay,Anne will bring it to you tomorrow night.
🖲️Okay boss, please come pick the car immediately,I’m almost home.
🖲️Anne and Joel are on their way already.
🖲️Okay,the car is gonna need new spray and a change of plate number.
🖲️Alright. Take care.
🖲️Bye’ I disconnected it as i drove into JUST estate.

I parked at the beginning of the estate, turned off the ignition and left the key there.
I stepped down from the car and closed the car door.
I carefully looked around before hurrying to the house.


I jumped into my room through my opened window and quickly drew the curtain close.
I switched on the light and sat on the bed to catch my breath.

Tonight was fun.
Damn fun.

I hope Darrel will be okay.
I’m sure i didn’t shot him,how did he sustained the injury on his forehead.
Serves him right though.

Im still wondering what sort of cops are those weaklings.
Are they really cops?
They knew i was gonna be having a mission in that building tonight and they didn’t order every occupants to evacuate the building before i got there?
Darrel is way smarter than that,i wonder what went wrong..

But seriously Mia,you took down those guys!
Thanks to the years i spent training.
Thanks to boss too..he made me this strong.
Then,i always thought Boss was intentionally inflicting pain on me during training but now look. I beat up those guys and even left there unscathed.

Who would have believed that?
I’ve never fought so many people,this is my first time and yet i defeated them.
If only those cops weren’t weaklings,they should have fought me back intensely,even at that,I’ll still defeat them cause I’m Mia.

My thoughts flashed back to Darrel.
Definitely,he won’t be coming home tonight.

I pressed my lips together and slipped my feet out of my boots,my wig and mask came off next and i glanced at my ninja outfit.

It’s marred already.
If it had received more bullets,it might have penetrated into my body.
All they know best is to waste bullets, they’re all sleaze bags except Darrel though.

I would really appreciate if boss can get me the exact copy of this ninja outfit.
I love it so much.
It gives me some sort of strength and courage.

I stood up and shifted the curtain aside, i glanced out of the window and saw that my car has been taken away.
I sighed and relaxed back on the bed.
Minutes later,i was in the tub soaking my body in the cold soapy water.
I couldn’t deny the fact that I’m worried about Darrel.
I shouldn’t be right?

Maybe because he has been nice to me but if he knew the real me,no doubt he’ll be more than cruel to him.

I know i won’t be able to get any sleep tonight..

🍥Next morning🍥

I’m done with my morning chores and I’ve made breakfast but neither Nath nor i could eat.

Darrel isn’t home yet.

I sat on the couch in the living room, staring at the blank TV.
Nath left here minutes ago and i could bet he was damn worried about Darrel.
He looked so sad that i almost felt guilty but no!

I can never feel guilty of my actions.
Anyone could go to hell,i don’t really care.
I shouldn’t starve myself because of someone I’m still gonna kill.

I stood up and turned to the direction of the kitchen.
I heard the door opened and turned back immediately.


Our eyes locked for a while,his eyes were red and sad.
He didn’t utter a word,he only looked on.
Has he found out about me?

I saw Nath appeared behind him.
“Agent Darrel is back Mia” He said.
“Y..yeah” I said.
“Gosh! You’re hurt” Nath said pointing to his forehead.
I shifted my gaze to his forehead and found it heavily draped with plaster.
His hair looks scattered and his eyes expressed deep pain.

He had a change of clothe already. This wasn’t the cloth he was putting on yesternight.

“Agent Darrel are you okay?” Nath asked worriedly.
Darrel’s response was silence…it’s obvious he’s pained.
He started walking towards the stairs slowly and it was then i noticed another plaster behind his neck.

What have you caused Mia!!

The pity i felt for him this time was intense.
“D..Darrel are you okay?” I asked but he ignored me too and started climbing the stairs to his room.

“What’s wrong with him? He doesn’t look fine” Nath said.
“Yeah” I said and sat back on the couch.
“Do you think it has to do with the assassin?” Nath asked and i glanced up at him.
“I don’t know” I shrugged.

“We’ve been expecting him all night and he just showed up to ignore us” He said.
“It’s obvious he’s not happy, something went wrong” I said.
“Yeah,dish out his breakfast,he might be starving” Nath said and i nodded.
“Should i dish yours too?” I asked.
“Umm…you can bring mine when agent Darrel has eaten” He said and i smiled.
“Me too” I said.

“Good,I’ll return to my post. Make sure you try to talk him into eating” Nath winked and walked out of the door.

I walked to the kitchen and started dishing out Darrel’s breakfast.
I wonder why I’m feeling bad.
He deserved what he got,how dare he try to capture me.

I placed his breakfast on the dining table and walked back to the kitchen.
I opened the fridge and brought out a bottle of water with glass cup.
I planned on baking cakes and cookies,the fridge looks empty to me.

I rinsed the glass cup in the sink before pouring some water into it.
I gulped it down my throat and sighed in satisfaction.

I picked my apron and wore it over my dress.
I wore my chef cap too and opened the shelf.

I started bringing out the necessary ingredients.


I rinsed my hands in the sink after I’ve placed the cupcakes batter and cookies in the oven.
It’s starting to bake.

I wiped my hands off the napkin before walking out of the kitchen.

Darrel’s breakfast was still on the dining table,untouched.
I sighed and picked it up…it has gone cold already.
I will microwave it and take it to him.


I knocked gently on the door of his room with a tray of breakfast in my hands.
I knocked again..

“The door is opened” He said,his voice didn’t sound as sweet as usual.
Darrel is down! Just because he couldn’t capture me and here i am feeling sorry for him.

This isn’t the first time I’ll be coming into his room but this is the first time I’ll be properly coming into his room.
Back then,i do come in through the window or ceiling.

He was sitting on his bed, looking clean and refreshed,his hair has been combed and styled in a way that it would not touch the plaster on his forehead. His face was buried in a novel and I was surprised to realize he read novels.

I hate novels.
They are all fictions that always make one believe in happy endings.
I hate love novels the most.

I spoke up when i realized how awkward the silence was.

“Darrel are you okay?”
“Yeah” He responded and glanced up at me.

This guy is crazily cute.
The huge plaster didn’t affect his cuteness in any way,it added to it instead.

“Are you sure.?” I asked.
“Yes Mia” He said.
“Nothing is wrong? and yet you have a huge plaster on your forehead and neck” I said.
“Well…I don’t want to talk about it ” He said.

I know already.

“We were so worried about you and seeing you like this,this morning gave us a shocker”
“I’m sorry i made you guys worried” He said.

“It’s fine…your breakfast is here” I said and walked to him.
I placed it on his bedside stool…
“I don’t want to eat anything for now” He said, dropping the novel in his hand.
“You have to eat” I said.
“I don’t feel like” He said.
“Then we won’t also have our breakfast” I said.
“You guys haven’t had your breakfast?” He asked.
“Yeah,we were waiting for you to do so first” I said and he sighed.

“Wow! Thanks” He said and placed the tray beside him on the bed.
He opened the dish and started eating.

“Will you go have your breakfast now?” He asked.
“Of course” I smiled,still standing.

“Ohh..my,the cookies and cakes!” I exclaimed with my eyes wide opened before running out of his room.
I heard him laughing hard behind me and i couldn’t help but smile too.


“It was devastating. I still can not get over the face that a lady defeated more than ten guys” Darrel said, running his hand through his hair.
Nath and i were seated at the living room with him, He finally decided to tell us what happened.

“Really?” Nath asked.
“Yeah” He said.
“Are you sure she’s a human being?” Nath asked.
“Who knows! She fights like a maniac,i wonder where she got her skills from” Darrel said.
‘from my boss’ I smiled inwardly.

“That’s sad but how did you found out she was having a mission?” I asked.
“I received a mail from her” He said.

A mail?
I didn’t send any mail!!

“Why don’t you track the mail?” Nath asked.
“Its always blocked, there’s no way i can track it” Darrel said.

“You knew she was having a mission and you didn’t inform the occupants to evacuate the building” I said.
“We did! We actually did, we didn’t know the exact apartment she’s gonna assassinate so we ordered every occupants to leave the building before night falls but Mr Rousey is one hell of a stubborn person,he dismissed our order and met his death”

They actually did.

Thanks for being stubborn Mr Rousey.

“I’m so sad, we lost over ten cops yesternight,few are in the hospital,hurt. I shouldn’t have asked for a backup in the first place” He said.
“You can’t capture that assassin on your own, you’ll always need a backup. She’s the one that hurt you right?” Nath asked.

“Nah! I fell while trying to get to her, and i sustained the wound on my neck when she pushed me” He said and i breathed out..
“She might be a psychopath” Nath said and i secretly sent him a glare.
“I’m glad you’re okay now so after this,do you still want to proceed with your plan to capture her?” I asked.

“Of course,once i bite i don’t let go” He said determinedly.

So stubborn!

Nath sighed… “That’s a good spirit but I’m afraid,your life is at stake”
“Of course” I said.
“I know but that’s the nature of my job,i have to risk my life to save others. I’m only afraid of my dad getting to see the news. He’s gonna get mad”

“Your father doesn’t approve of your job?” I asked.
“Yeah,I’m the only one he have left. He doesn’t want to loose me” Darrel said and i felt a stab of pain in my heart.

He’s the only one his father have left and I’m going to kill him?
I swallowed hard.

“Why don’t we let go of this,if we keep talking about it. It’s gonna wear you out Darrel” I said.
“Yeah” He said.

“So, who wants some cookies and cakes?” I asked.
“I” They chorused.


“Goodnight Darrel” I said.

I just finished washing the dishes we used in having dinner.

“Ohh..you’re going to bed already” He said.
“Yeah” I said.
“Okay,have a nice night” He said.
“You too” I said and started walking to my room.

I walked in and closed the door.
I switched on the light and was startled to find Anne on the bed, grinning.
She had a paper bag beside her.

“Anne!” I gasped and quickly bolted the door.
