Welcome to the Miraculously finished Chapter 2
So sit back, relax and enjoy my never ending 'what-the-heck-is-going-on-here' story :]
After the phone call, Zeke ran down the stairs as fast as he could while the little girl, Samantha, followed. Noticing her, Zeke stopped at the foot of the stairs and turned.
“Whoa, stop! Go back upstairs! Go play video games, watch cartoons, draw on my walls, whatever! Just stay there!”
Samantha stared at Zeke, thinking ‘Why is this peasant ordering me around?’
“Because he’s older than you,” Nick said from the kitchen as he took out the groceries.
“How…how did you?”
“Lucky guess; I used to think the same when Em bosses me around.”
Samantha was appalled, why follow orders from people you don’t know? She wanted to ask more questions but she could somehow feel Zeke’s uneasiness. So like a good little girl, she went back upstairs. Both Nick and Zeke waited until they were sure that she won’t hear them. “Kris is coming over, isn’t she?” Nick started as if he read Zeke’s mind.
“It’s creepy when you do that, but yes, she is.”
Nick closed his eyes and whispered in disbelief. “We retired two years ago. So why would Kris rely on us?”
With a sigh Nick opened his eyes and stared at the floor for a bit. When he looked up his heart skipped a beat as Zeke was already beside him, chopping vegetables on the counter.
“It’s creepy when you do that.” Nick remarked.
“You still can’t read my movements,” Zeke chopped on. “I don’t think I’ve rusted yet– Ouch!”
Zeke held up his left hand, and sure enough, blood was trailing from a cut in his index finger. “Better leave the cooking to me before you slice your drawing hand, da Vinci.” Nick laughed.
Zeke sucked on his finger and backed away. He was about to flop back on the couch when the door bell rang.
“Death’s here!” Zeke gleefully pranced towards the door then stopped. He looked down and wriggled his toes. No shoes.
‘No one’s going to get scolded for bare feet, right?’
And with that he continued and opened the door only to get face-mauled by Emily herself. “Your sense of appearance disappoints me, Zeke.”
Zeke landed on the floor with a thump, “Hi Em, nice haircut you look like–”
“If you say Elton John I will maim you.” Emily said without a hint of mercy.
Zeke flinched at the thought; Emily never kids, especially when her hair is involved. She did say she was going to get a haircut while in Italy. Guess it didn’t turn out well. He decided to quiet down and spare his beautiful face.
“I see you’re digging your own grave again, Zeke.” Someone behind Emily said.
Zeke propped his arms behind him and tilted his head. “Kris, long time no see,”
The moment their eyes meet, Kris stared at Zeke with scorn. “I can’t believe I’m reduced to asking you for help.” Zeke stood up and stared back in response.
It was clear enough. Kris, like any prideful detective, was pained to ask people who aren’t even in the line of duty for help. Even so, they were her only hope.
There was an awkward silence. Everyone tensed. No one dared to move as if time had stopped. That moment they all recognized how one wrong, ill-tempered move could change everything. The lights seemed to have dimmed and everyone’s eyes gleamed with malice. Then to everyone’s relief, the oven gave its neutral ‘ting!’ and time resumed. With the silence broken, Emily threw her coat, which gave a metalic sound, on the foyer and shrank on the couch. Zeke went into the laundry room and placed something there. Meanwhile Nick returned a small knife into a drawer and began to place the plates on the table.
Kris shuddered at the realization. She has no hold over these people anymore; they’re no longer working for her. And since she’s in their domain, she should’ve held her tongue. After all, unleashed dogs can bite.
After Nick finished setting the table, he immediately grabbed a plate and sat on the red armchair in the living room. Zeke followed and positioned himself on the leather couch. Emily gave a sigh, sat in the dinette and invited Kris to join her. Hiding her inner emotions, Kris sat down across Emily.
“They still haven’t forgiven you.”
“There’s nothing to forgive, Em.”
Emily threw her a look. Kris knew she had some fault but she didn’t like the idea of being in the wrong.
Kris stared at her plate for a while then breathed out and lifted her head. She was here for a reason. “I won’t intrude any longer,” she started. “I need your help regarding the kidnapping of a Wellington noble.”
Zeke and Nick looked at her with alarm. Kris continued. “The noble in question is a little girl, Samantha Wellington.”
Did you know that my characters reply to you if you comment? Why yes, yes they do. I believe Zeke had spammed some guestbooks last time haha. I hope he wasn't a bother.

I'll see you guys in the next installment
