The Greek Gods-Chapter Twenty-Eight

©Bunmi B. Gabriel.


   I laughed as Salvador and Mimi (Mace's little sister) chased me around the house, I could barely breathe but I had to play with them. I ran to Mimi's room and jumped on her bed, they jumped on me laughing and attacked me with the pillows. They were chasing me because I teased them about being couples.

   'Okay, I'm sorry,' I laughed rolling down from the bed to the floor. They jumped on my stomach, hitting me more. I laughed and sat up as they left me. Salvador looked like the younger brother to Mimi which was actually the other way round. 'Your wife is bigger than you, short bottle.' He whipped me with the pillow as I laughed.

   'Enough,' Ace's voice boomed from the door, it sounded very cold. We looked at him, he was smiling but I knew that smile very well. What happened?  'Hey guys,'

   'Daddy!' Mimi squealed and ran to him while Salvador gave me a knowing look.

   'Mg baby girl,' he carried her up and took her away.

   'He's angry,' Salvador said plainly. 'I'll take care of Mimi, you find out why he's like that.' Is it so weird that I take orders from a kid? I stood up, my eyes turned making me sway to the side. I staggered out of the room to mine, my throat was closing up again. I had vomited three times already, all blood. I opened the toilet lid, went on my knees and threw up again. I coughed as I vomited, my throat and stomach burning with an intense fire.

   'Damn,' I murmured and stood up. I flushed the toilet and wiped my mouth with my palms which was pale blue.   'God,' I need gloves. I turned around and screamed, falling back on the toilet lid as Ace's angry red eyes feasted on my soul.  'Ace,' I stammered. 'I thought you were with Mimi....'

   'To this extent you believe keeping your health a secret is good? Magenta, do you even know what death is? How it feels?' I stared at my feet as tears rolled down my cheeks. 'You are dying yet you encourage your mother to live, how do you think she would survive if you fucking die! How do you think Psycho will remain sane! How do you think I will FUCKING REMAIN SANE!!!' I flinched and burst out in tears, cupping my mouth as my body trembled.

   'I'm sorry....'

   'Sorry? Sorry Magenta? From the moment I started dating you until now, all I've experienced is stress, worry, headache and pain. As much as you make me happy, and as much as you make me a better person, i can count the number of times we have had a sincere worry free time and still have three fingers to spare. Do you think I like it? My first committed relationship to be filled with worries alone? I do not complain, I barely sleep, I eat less but I still make sure I do everything to make you feel better no matter how hard it is on me. How do you pay me back? You want to die, you want to leave me and everyone that cares about you because of what!'

   'I'm sorry, I didn't want to bother you more with my problems....'

   'I wasn't complaining!!!' He yelled furiously. 'I fucking wasn't complaining! What will your death do to me or your mother, father, sister and brother? Give us a reason to dab!!!' I cried loudly, hoping it was soften his heart but he was beyond calmness.  'Since you want to die, die. I will only mourn for few months and move on with the reminder never to fall in love with a weak and utterly stupid girl!' He stomped out of the bathroom, slamming the door shut aggressively. 'Salvador! Mimi! Get your things! We are leaving!' I heard him shout. I stayed on the toilet, crying my eyes out. What is wrong with me? Am I cursed?

   After crying there for hours, I washed up and dragged myself to the bedroom. I walked to his wardrobe, I could barely feel myself alive. I opened the wardrobe and picked out his favorite shirt, I changed from the towel into it and went to bed. I was dozing off, my breath was under hold. I was cold and alone, Ace and I fought and that was serious to me. He indirectly said he loves me but regret it, what can hurt more than it. I shuddered as I tried to keep warm, my entire system was shutting down. Someone suddenly embraced me from the back, the familiar warmth giving me heat. He leaned closer and gently kissed my neck, despite me being freaking cold and lifeless few minutes ago, I was getting incredibly hot. He snaked his strong arms around my hips, bringing my back closer to his front.

His touch awoke a heated feeling in my lower abdomen area, making me crave his touch more. I gasped when his hands moved to my ass and squeezed a cheek. He brought it even closer to his front, and grinded on it; making me gasp even louder.

   'You like that, huh?" He asked huskily, his breath tickling my neck. My eyes widened, that wasn't Ace. I made to spring away from his hold but he pinned me down and forced his weight on me.

   'Percy, please leave me alone,' I cried weakly, I had no energy to fight back.

   'Why should I? I came here to kill your pretty boyfriend but got you instead,' he smirked.  'Now hold still, this won't hurt much.' He removed a syringe from his pocket and injected me with the liquid.

   'Percy,' I gasped.

   'Sorry, it will only paralyze you while I work,' he said with an evil laugh. He started to gently shower kisses all over my neck, before they became hungrier and rougher than usual. I cried as I laid helplessly on the bed, the cold was back in the worse way. He moved up and crashed his lips on mine, kissing me roughly and impatiently. I cried louder, calling Ace's name and hoping he would dramatically show up.  'Why are you calling that bastard? I'm here for you, not him. Stop calling him or I'll be hard on you,' he rubbed circles on my laps. 'You used to hate it when I used my tongue to kiss every area of your body, you never liked foreplay, only work. You were no fun but maybe you will love it now.'

His dark blue eyes were swirling with lust and hate, as his hungry eyes ate up every inch of me. I lay beneath him like the helpless shit I was, "I love you so much Vanilla."

   "I love Ace." His eyes darkened with anger, making my heart lurch in fear.

   'You are going to regret saying that,' with that he pounced on me, the Percy I knew will never hit a woman but he wasn't Percy anymore. He rained blows on my face, increasing my dizziness and the pain in my chest. After bruising my face to his satisfaction, he tore off the shirt, removed his belt and that was how I got raped beyond brutality. It was all my fault, maybe if I was honest, Ace wouldn't have left.  'There, you love me now, huh?!' He yelled manically, strangling my head.  'Since I can't have you, no one else will!' He got of me and searched his trousers.

My eyes were closed, I couldn't feel myself anymore. I felt a sting on my neck, he injected me with something else.

   'Goodbye Vanny baby, see you in hell.' My mind shut down halfly, I heard the door slam shut.

   'Get up Magenta! Enough of your weakness! Stand up!' My subconscious yelled. My eyes opened sharply, I need to at least try to live. My phone was downstairs, my hope was less. Nevertheless, I thought of mom, dad, Savannah and Ace, dragging my will to survive from them. I rolled off the bed and landed in a thud.

   'I can live,' I used the bed to stand up, a sharp pain surging from my pelvic to my brain. I held my breath and dragged myself to the wardrobe, I changed into another shirt and staggered my way downstairs. Blood was running down my nose as I coughed out some violently. I finally reached the living room and picked up my phone. I sniffed, my temperature was freaking hot now, my eyes puffy and face apparently swollen from the beating. I sat on the floor gently as I unlocked my phone and dialed his number.  'Please pick up.'


   I drove back to my house with speed, I'm such a fool, I shouldn't have let my anger cloud my judgement. She was vomiting blood, I should have forced her to the hospital instead of leaving her alone after saying such hurtful words to her. I would have called her but I forgot my phones at Salvador's room. I sighed as I parked my car in the parking lot, I need to apologise to her. I got out of the car, shut the door and jogged into the house.

   'Genny babe! Daddy's home!' I shrilled in a singsong.  'Geni....' I froze on my step, my hands sagging and mouth falling open. She was on the floor, her face badly bruised like she was beaten up and blood running down her mouth, nose and ear. Her phone wasn't far from her blue palms, she wasn't moving an inch.  'Genny?' I walked towards her with short trembling steps, is this a dream?  'Magenta?' I knelt down and touched her neck with shaky hands.  'This is a fucking dream, I'll wake up and see her alive and sleeping beside me like the Angel she....this is not a dream! Magenta!' I cried shaking her body violently.

My head was hot, a fire had been ignite in my head. Fire of fear, disbelief and regret. I scooped her into my arms and carried her to the car, she can't die


   I stared at my body in tears as the doctor tried to revive me, I knew I wouldn't wake up, I was dead already.

   'You shouldn't cry much, you still have hope,' I gasped and turned to the voice, it was a girl. 'Hi, I'm Kiara,' she was light skinned with big brown eyes and curly blonde hair.

   'Why shouldn't I be sad? What hope do I have?'

   'You are still alive,' she smiled staring at my body.  'Just in coma like I am.'

   'You are also in coma?'

   'Four years and during these years, I've learnt how to use my special half ghost powers. Why are you dead?'

   'Why are you in a coma?'

   'My step dad raped me, when I tried to speak out, he injected me with something. He was a doctor so whatever he used really worked. Now my mom thinks it's a great illness.'

   'And he watches you with great joy?'

   'He's dead, died three days after I was injected and no, I didn't do it.'

   'Shouldn't the poison be detected now?'

   'It has but the treatment course a lot and that is what my mother can't afford so she pays for meditation to sustain me. I got tired of watching my body and crying so here I am, five miles away.' She said nonchalantly.

   'I'm here because i was stupid,' I sighed.

   'Things aren't always what they seem love,' she smirked. She was tall, probably a year or two older but really beautiful.  'Come on, let's find out what really happened.' She smiled as she looked at the doctor leaving the theatre.


   My eyes were burning and puffy, my throat as dried as a dessert. I had been crying for three straight days, my painful rashes all over my body. Magenital still laid in her bed like a lab rat, an oxygen mask supporting her breathing. According to the doctors, the first thing was that she was poisoned. The poison was a slow killer, one that have been in her system for a month and few days, by the calculation, it fell on costume charade night. Surveillance cameras spotted Berwyn sneaking in and out of school and when she was arrested and questioned, she admit to poisoning my twin and not regretting it.

Two, before she passed out, she was raped and injected with another chemical which was clashing with her system. Ace already knew the culprit and was searching for him. All those didn't matter, all I wanted was her alive.


   I stared at Melody lamely as she preached to me, my hands were cuffed and two female cops standing behind me. I didn't give a fuck, that bitch was dying and that gave me so much peace and joy. What else was there to live for? She stole my place, the love of my life and my face. Everybody forgot about me, I became a laughing shit. Although the poison I stylishly gave her through someone was to make her flower flow endlessly until she dies, I couldn't be more happy for buying the wrong drugs that caused her a lot of pains; better than I hoped for.

   'Berwyn, you will be sentence to death if she dies because the person you poisoned is rich. Your parents have no job again, your life is ruined just because you couldn't let go of a man. Where is Olivia who kept encouraging you? Gone, like she never knew you.'

   'Fuck her, as long as the bitch dies.' I spat smugly. She leaned closer on the table and smiled sadly.

   'I should have told them who your culprit is, should I?' I rolled my eyes.

   'If you tell them, Olivia will get imprisoned too.'

   'Good riddance to bad rubbish,' she smirked falling back to her chair. 'I won't have her to share my own father and after her, I will rid him of her mother and bring my own mother back where she belongs. It's called taking advantage of bad situation.'

   'You are a snitch, you snitched on me!'

   'I told the truth!' She yelled back. 'I'm tired of covering up the fact that both you, Quincy and Olivia are responsible for her condition!' She yelled and gasped like she said it out mistakingly. The cops immediately looked at her. 'I meant....I....er....'

   'Come with us Miss Melody,' the taller woman said coldly. Melody put on a guilty face as she followed her out, she smirked deviously at me before leaving. I tilted my head in confusion, to think of it, Melody knew I was going to poison her but didn't stop me. She knew all along that Magenta was dying slowly but she kept shut, I gasped as realization hit me. Melody hates me! She used my obsession to trap me.

My heart thumped against my chest, what did I do to her?


   I sat on the bed with mom who was staring at my body in tears, that is all she have been doing. I knew who killed me and why, what I couldn't believe was who actually poisoned me. I will surely make Quincy pay, they all will.

   'Mom,' I looked at the door and smiled, my glorious boyfriend plodding in. He really needed to shave and take care of himself, too bad I will die.  'You don't need to cry, your health is delicate.' He whispered as he stroke her hair, he was in pain and blaming himself for leaving me alone. Zach, dad and Savannah walked in.

   'Have you caught that idiot? Her rapist?'

   'He fled to South Africa,' Savannah sighed. 'Ace's dad is already contacting the president, we are going to catch him.' They surely will.

   'Liz,' dad called softly sitting on the bed beside her, the way she glared at him was frightening. The doctor walked in that moment with a big smile, a short light skinned woman behind him.

   'Ah! You are all here, good.'

   'Any good news?' Ace asked eyeing the new face.

   'As a matter of fact, yes. This is Dr. Penny Williams, as instructed Mr. Davison, I got a doctor who can handle the case perfectly.'

   'So? What is the news?' Dad asked with a glimmer of hope in his eyes.

   'There is just one way to save her now,' Dr. Penny said briskly. 'The poison have been neutralized but the remains still flows in her blood stream thereby making the poison very active. The solution is extremely dangerous but since she dies either way, we are going to purge her blood vessel.'

   'I don't understand,' Vana said confusedly.

   'I'm going to flush all her blood out...certainly it's not possible to flush all out but if I can flush out up to 75 to 80% of her blood, it would be quickly replaced. The new fresh blood will overpower the poisoned one, thereby purifying it. With the drugs I brought, her heart can pump more cleaner set into her vessels.'

   'So where is the problem in it?'

   'Her heart is weak and might not last long enough to carry out the operation, that's one.' Dr. Drew replied.

   'And we need six piles of blood to replace it. Her blood group is the rare type and we don't need any bought blood. Only her relative which share the exact group will have to donate.' Dr. Penny explained.

   'No problem, dad and I can risk it, we'll donate.'

   'Wouldn't that be too much from two people?' Ace asked with concern. Mom started laughing psychopathically with her head back and eyes closed.

   'What's her own?' Kiara asked puzzledly, we all were.

   'Now Rufus, should I tell them or would you?' She asked with a creepy grin.

   'Liz, please....'

   'Once upon a time!' She shrieked swaying back to forth with legs tucked into her butt.  'I was a beautiful young woman who was minding my own business before I fell in love with a bastard,' she grinned at dad. 'He was everything to me, I could kill to make him happy, make him smile. Unfortunately, he knew this and always used it against me, to the extent that when he went bankrupt one time, he convinced me t....'

   'Elizabeth, please!' Dad cried distraughtly. What's going on? Ace, Vannah, Zach, please excuse us.'

   'Mom, finish the story,' Zach said through gritted teeth.

   'Thank you my son,' she giggled.  'So!' She clapped her hands gossipingly and laughed. 'He met a rich man, the man didn't want to get married but needed an heir. He for some reason wanted me to be the mother of his heir because I'm pretty and he was desperate to have me. My darling husband,' she tickled dad's chin. 'He went to the man and struck a deal with him, i would bear the child for him. It was stupid but the I loved my husband too much that I did it. I was blindfolded every time I met the man so I won't know his face and later come for my child. In conclusion, I slept with the unknown mask six times before I got pregnant.'

I started laughing too, understanding where the story was heading at.

   'Take heart,' Kiara tapped my shoulder.

   'I grew attached to the child, the baby in my womb meant so much to me so when the pregnancy became six months old, I refused bluntly to the contract,' mom said seriously this time. 'After a week of arguing, this idiot,' she smacked dad's head. 'Let me keep the baby as ours, told the man the baby later died after birth. I got to keep my beautiful daughter but then left her after he went bankrupt again and tried to convince me into repeating the same thing. I realised he didn't love me, he ruined my life!'

   'I'm sorry,'

   'Let's forget about the Magenta is my half sister stuff first, who is her father? We need him.' Zach said angrily, I was crying. So that's why mom left.

   'Dad!!!!' Vana roared furiously. He bowed his head sadly.

   'I never called off the deal,' he started sadly. 'I was the only one who knew the gender and number of babies in your womb so I lied to you. I made sure you gave birth through operation so you wouldn't know you bore twins. I gave the younger one to him, the boy and let you keep the girl, neither of you knowing the truth.'

   'So now you are telling me that Magenta has a younger twin brother somewhere!' Ace yelled. 'Who the fuck is the man!'

   'His name is Jay Lawson and the boy is called Jace.' My jaw dropped simultaneously with everyone, what!
