THE RED HAIRED WITCH
EPISODE •• FORTY ••FOUR
THEME:MISSING HOME (2)
ZONDAEL MOUNTAIN
Darius POV
“Kira..”
I called out to Kira when i walked Into the house but no response
“Kira..”
I checked her room but she wasn’t there neither was she anywhere in the house
“Kira! Kira!”
I checked the beautiful garden Kira had set up a month ago with her powers but she wasn’t sitting next to her favorite flower pot like she used to. Where did she go to? There was no other place she could be right now aside our home during this time. I ran for about an hour making my way back to the old mansion but Kira wasn’t in there. My heartbeat accelerated… Did someone come in here to take her away? I only went scanning the area beyond behind our home which was the old resident of the other Fae. I had suggested to Kira to come with me but she had refused, saying she needed to have a good rest. Another location popped into my mind – the pool! I ran at a high speed back to our home and checked if Kira was back in the house but she wasn’t…then I made my way to the pool which Kira had created for herself where she used to stay in the evening. Kira was getting used to this place and over few weeks she had learnt how to use some of her powers properly. Finally I got to the pool and I sighed with relief when I saw Kira sitting by the pool with her legs in the water
“Kira”
I called at her but she didn’t respond. Kira was lost in thought as she stared into space. I removed my leather boot and settled beside her. I rubbed my palm straight in her face then she jerked back to life.
“Darius..”
She said in a low tone
“When did you get here?”
“Just now after I searched the whole area”
“I’m sorry about that”
“No it okay”
She nodded slowly
“What are you thinking?”
“Huh??”
“I called your name when I got here but you were too deep in thought that you didn’t know I was beside you. Is something wrong Kira?”
I flicked her hair behind her ear
“Everything is fine”
Kira replied as she fiddled with her fingers
“Lemme guess you are thinking of him again?”
“Who?”
She glanced at me
“The red mage of course.. max”
Then She rolled her eyes
“It not about him Darius”
Her gaze dropped back on her fingers
“Missing home then”
She nodded negatively but I knew that was the main reason for her thinking. I let out a loud sigh. Kira never talked about missing home ever since we got here probably because she feared that another demi god will appear out of no where,deceive her by using one of her parents appearance and try to take her away…
“It fine if you tell me that you are missing home…I won’t scold you for that and look around Kira…no one is coming here to take you away okay?”
“Even if I say yes will that change anything…will I go back to my family?..”
She said shakily then I noticed the sting of tears at the corner of her eyes but then she looked away quickly to hide them from me
“Let’s go inside”
I stood at my full height and stretched my hand out to her to help her up but Kira only stared at me with the hidden tears now dropping down her cheeks she just wiped it away immediately
“I still want to stay out here for a while”
“It getting late Kira”
“No..”
I crouched down and carried her out of the water In a quick movement. Kira held me tightly with her eyes wide
“Are you okay?”
“You should have informed me you were going to do that…”
“What?”
“Carrying me suddenly”
“I had to…or else you won’t give in”
“Whatever”
“Good?”
“Yes I’m fine”
“Then let’s go home”
I ran back home. Pushed the door with my foot and walked in
“Put me down Darius”
I placed her gently on the couch
“Don’t move an inch..I’ll be right back”
I dashed Into her room. I came back with a water in a bowl,a hand towel and a hairbrush
“What do you wanna use this for?..I mean what are you doing?”
“Just stay calm”
I soaked the towel in the bowl and squeezed out the water. Kira held my wrist when I was about to mop her face with the towel
“I can take a shower instead of you mopping my body… It not as if I’m crippled”
She eyed me
“Not your whole body Kira just your face”
“But why are you doing all this?”
“You miss home right?”
She nodded
“Then stop asking me questions and let me take care of you”
Kira let go of my wrist. I mopped her face clean before settling down beside her
“Turn and let me fix your hair”
I motioned for Kira to turn her back to me. This time she did as I instructed without questions. She turned and let me take her braid down. I ran my fingers through her hair before reaching out for he hairbrush. When I was done brushing I quickly did a tight new braid that dropped down her back
“Now we are done with that”
“Darius..”
She touched her braid
“How did you manage to braid?”
“I will tell you that later”
I replied and pushed my cellphone into her hands
“What should I do with your phone Darius?”
“Call your family”
I picked up the stuffs on the table and was about leaving when kira said
“Thank you”
I didn’t turn back to look at her instead I walked away. I had to give her a chance to call her family cause I can’t risk Kira hurting herself because she missed her family. Kira is an obedient girl and she is willing to protect herself and family especially. I had dropped my phone where Kira could easily take it and call her family behind my back or even try to connect to them with her powers but she never did any of that. Then I figured Kira was once again scared of connecting to her family thinking the King who her might go after her family or even have a feeling of what she was doing. And that something I should be more concerned about…I just hope the King won’t go after her family just to know where she is. I walked back into the sitting room few seconds later after dropping off the stuffs I picked from Kira’s room. I sat on the tool inside the bar Kira had created for me as a gift for protecting her. I poured whiskey into a glass…gunny drinking a magical whiskey but it still tastes the same…Kora was still trying to connect with her family through Video call

HUNTER HOME
Alec POV
I turned off the shower, grabbed a towel, wrapped it around my waist before stepping out of the bathroom. I heard a soft ping when I stepped Into the room and I traced it to Amy’s dressing table..It was her Cellphone. “Unknown” was displayed on the screen
“Honey your phone is ringing
I said loudly but got no response. I can’t possibly go into the kitchen with a naked chest and towel around my waist cause Lana was here in our house. I quickly grab a top and a short before heading to the kitchen but Amy wasn’t there. I made my way to the sitting room where I saw she and Lana watching TV
” I have been calling out to you in the room..your phone is ringing”
“Oh I’m sorry Honeybunch”
She collected the phone
“It an unknown number video calling me”
“Don’t you remember giving your number to anyone?”
“You know me too well Alec..I don’t give my number to just anybody”
The phone stopped ringing
“Mom it dangerous picking Unknown numbers these days…it might be a scam calling you”
Lana said to Amy
“Why one earth would an unknown person try to video call me?”
Amy said asking no one in particular
“Maybe it a wrong number then”
I said to Amy
“Yeah Mom, maybe the person pressed the wrongs pins”
Lana added

ZONDAEL MOUNTAIN
“No one is picking up?”
Kira nodded slowly as she held the phone to her chest
“Who did you call?”
“My mom”
“Why don’t you try calling your dad or your brother?
” their lines are switched off”
“Call your best friend then”
“I am not sure of her number… I’m always missing out a Number or two”
She replied honestly
“You can continue calling your mom till she picks up”
“Uhmmm..she won’t pick u”
She replied in a sad tone
“Why?”
“It not a saved number or any number she is familiar with”
“So she doesn’t pick up unknown number?”
“Yes”
“Seen a message to her and tell her it you”
Without wasting much time Kira typed on my phone and stopped
“Have you done that?”
“Yes I’ve sent it”
“Okay”

HUNTER HOME
Amy POV
My phone pinged again after I dropped it on my lap. A message displayed on the screen from the same line I had rejected the call. I clicked and opened the message then my eyes widened in shock and surprise after I saw the content of the message
“Good Day mom,
How have you been?
So sorry I’m just reaching out to you guys
Please pick up your video call,I do like to see your faces
From Kira”
Then it ended..the message was from Kira!
“Are you okay?”
Alec and kana can to my side
“Kira..kira..kira is alive!’
I screamed happily
“What?”
Alec snatched the phone and read the message
“My baby is alive..”
A tear dropped down my cheek
“We should call her so we can be sure if it was Kira who sent this message”
Alec suggested
“Yes..yes you are right”
Alec dialed the number
“Is it connecting?”
I asked anxiously
“Yes Hun”
Alec sat on my righy side while Lana picked the left side as we all waited for Kira to pick up
ZONDAEL MOUNTAIN
Kira was now pacing to and fro waiting for her parents to call back
“Just relax Kira they will call back”
“But what if they think it a scam..I mean my parents are sensitive they might be thinking the message is from scam who wants to extort from them..what if they decide not to pick because of that”
“Sh sh sh”
I went to her and placed my hands on her shoulder
“I’m sure your family must have been expecting a call from you. They will call back as soon as they get the message so just relax..and remember you have to assure them that you are doing fine out here.. Don’t let them think you are suffering here okay?”
“Yes”
She nodded and gave me a small smile. The phone pinged
“They are calling Darius?”
I led her back to the couch
“Relax and pick it up”
Kira swiped and the call got connected
“Kira!”
I heard Kira’s family screamed over the phone as I settled in the couch opposite hers

THE RED HAIRED WITCH
WRITER••• ADEMIDE
EPISODE •• FORTY •• FIVE
THEME: BABY ASHER!
Amelia POV
Four seconds clicked by and then it got connected. Kira appeared on the screen and we screamed her name. Kira!..My baby is Alive! Well not that I thought she was dead,I was only worried about her safety. We’ve all expected a call from her since the last two months after she disappeared. Now here she was video calling us!
“Hello FAM!” She said with a bright smile
“How are you doing?” We asked in unison and Kira giggled at that
“I’m fine mom,dad and Lana”
“I’m so happy to see you again Bestie!” Lana screamed at the top of her voice
“I really missed you guys too!”
“We miss you more my princess!” Alec replied with a huge smile plastered on his face
“Where have you been Zoe,we’ve been worried about you?”
“Mom I’ve been traveling with the man that abducted me for good…it really a long story that i can’t tell you all now”
“But… Where are you staying now?” Lana asked
“I am staying somewhere safe Bestie”
“No name?” Alec asked
“I can’t disclose that dad..it meant to be a secret”
“Are you staying in same house with that guy that abducted you?”
“Yes dad,it just the two of us in here”
“What?!” We screamed
“You shouldn’t be alone with a stranger” Alec protested
“Well dad,Darius is a good man”
“Darius? Is that his name?”
“Yes mom..you don’t have to worry about me”
“I’m just concerned about you living alone with a fully grown man who is a stranger to you and us too” Alec explained in a low tone
“Dad,Darius won’t do anything bad to me”
“How are you sure about that Bestie?.. I mean you shouldn’t trust someone you don’t know”
“Lana I have been with him for two months now… So he is not a stranger anymore” Kira looked away from the camera
“Is he there with you?”
“Yes mom”
“Well put him on the line..just tell him your parents wants to see his face..we have to be sure if you are truly in safe hands”
“Dad you can’t tell by his face..so you are not going to see his face” she giggled
“Why? he doesn’t have a face?”
“Hello Mr And Mrs Hunter”
We heard a masculine voice say over the phone but we couldn’t see his face
“You don’t have to worry about your daughter..she is in safe hands”
“I hope so Mr Darius..and don’t you dare try to touch my daughter!” Alec threatened
Kira just giggled at his threats
“Oh dad! Stop over reacting”
“Well Kira your dad is right..always lock your bedroom door at night or better still create a magical lock or boundary to stop him from sneaking into your room at night. He might want to take advantage of the fact that you are a fragile girl who can fight off a grown man…plus you are alone with him..just the two of you”
“Oh Lana!there you go again!”
“Am just saying the truth”
“I don’t need to create any magical lock or boundary just to keep Darius away”
“Oh you can’t do that because he can rip through any magic right?” I suggested
“Yes..how do you know that mom?”
“That guy pulled down the school boundary Joanna created. I had to build up another one together with your godfather”
“I’m sorry you had to go through all that mom”
“Hey my princess what is his identity?” Alec asked in a whisper
“I don’t know too Dad”
“You don’t know?”
“Yes mom”
“That’s bad” I said as Alec and I exchanged glances. Kira needs to know about the prophecy
“There is something you need to know Kira” I bit my lower lip
“What is it mom?”
“The thing is..Malcolm already told me about everything happening now…he prophesied it when I was pregnant”
I explained the prophecy to Kira
“Well that is an assurance that I’m going to return home safely”
“Yes..as long as Darius remains good to you my princess” Alec added
“Did Mr Darius ask you for any help?”
“No Lana,he is only determined to protecting me for now”
“You still have to be careful” Alec said suspiciously
“Where is kyle?”
“He is in Mumbai”
“Mumbai? Really?..finally he went to Mumbai”
“Yes..he is ready to get trained about his powers so he would be able to find you”
Lana replied her
“Tell him not to bother about finding me – I will come back home when it time but for now I have to stay away from home and be in a hidden place”
“It okay princess,we understand”Alec said to Kira
“Kira the last time I spoke to Kyle,he said if perhaps you call home I should give you his Mumbai number” Kira gaze moved somewhere else probably getting permission from Darius
“Okay..you can send it to this number” she said finally
“Sure I will Kira”
“So Mom..how is baby doing?”
“He is doing fine” I replied
“Yeah since you already predicted that baby would be a boy” Kira laughed
“So any Fetus name?”
“Yes..I got one for him My princess”
“What is it?”
“Spiderman!” Alec said loudly and We all laughed
“Really? spiderman? That weird dad”
“Don’t mind him,that was how he intended to give you Elastic girl and Superman to Kyle” she chuckled
“Mom give him a better name”
“Well baby,we didn’t give him a name because we were worried that you aren’t here with us to name him”
“My absence shouldn’t stop you from giving him a fetus name”
“Oh we actually wanted you to give him a name since you predicted that the baby is a boy” I said to her
“Not only that..we want our son to be named by a great Red witch!” Alec added
Kira giggled
“So go on and name him”
“Oh mom…” She placed her hand on her forehead
And rubbed it constantly trying to think of a name
“Asher” she opened her eyes
“Baby Asher got a fetus name from big sis!” Lana clapped excitedly”
“Asher is grateful for that name Kira” I rubbed my belly
“So when is he due mom?”
“In six months time”
“Dad give Asher a kiss for me..tell him Kira loves him”
“I will do just that princess”
“When will Kyle return home?”
“In five months time”
Lana answered Kira
“Okay..Lana thanks for taking care of mom and the baby”
“Oh you don’t have to thank me Kira..it something you would have done if I were in your shoes… You would have done better”
“Extend my greetings to everyone”
“Can we always call you on this line?”
“No….no..we are not meant to stay connected like that”
Our smile dropped a bit
“Okay…but try to send message once In a while just to assure us that you are fine and safe” Alec managed to say out of disappointment
“Okay dad”
“Bye Kira” we waved
“Bye FAM” the line dropped
“I think you can sleep soundly now right?” Alec asked me
“Yes honey..I’m happy she is safe..and doing fine”
“Same here honey”
“Lana send Kyle’s number to that line”
“Okay dad…I will just get my phone in the bedroom”
Lana walked off
“Lemme give Asher a kiss from Kira”
He placed a kiss on my belly
“Asher..can you hear me?”
Alec said In a low tone and I laughed
“I know you can hear me..Kira loves you and mom and dad loves you too” he kissed again

ZONDAEL MOUNTAIN
Darius POV
I watched and listened to every of Kira’s conversation with her family. I loved the way she had assured her parents that she was fine,how she had explained to them that I wasn’t a stranger anymore and that she trusted me. I loved the way she threw her head back in laughter anytime her dad said something funny and mostly the way her eyes sparkled slightly when she was looking at her family. I was happy to see her laugh this much and I knew the call would last for a while so I let her take time without any interruption. Kira came to my side and threw her arms around me suddenly
“Thank you..thank you Darius for giving me a chance to call my family”
“You don’t have to thank me Kira” she released me
“I should have allowed you call them since we settled down here..but I didn’t and I’m sorry for that -”
“No..no you don’t have to be sorry for anything Darius.. You’ve done so may good things for me, you never yelled at me or scold me whenever I did something wrong,instead you blame yourself for every little mistake I Make ever since we got here. And I really don’t know how to repay you for protecting me”
“Well you don’t have to repay me for anything…look you just have to promise me that you won’t try to run away from me or commit suicide when you miss your family and you can’t tell me”
“Suicide?! Why would I do that?! I can never even think of running away from you Darius when I know the purpose of being here is to protect me”
“I am just saying Kira..you have no idea how scared and worried I was when I couldn’t find you earlier on ”
“I’m sorry Darius..but you should have checked at the pool when you didn’t see me at home”
“Just don’t try to do anything silly to yourself like drowning in the pool” she rolled her eyes
“I can’t commit suicide when I have a family waiting for me and most especially a little brother waiting to see me”
“Asher?”
She hummed a response
“Your family is fun and…your dad is so funny”
“Yeah…he is kinda funny anytime he makes threat”
“You had a fetus Name when you were little?”
“Yes..Zoe”
“Zoe..what about Kyle?”
“Zachary..”
“Hmm Zoe and Zachary”
My phone pinged
“They sent Kyle’s number.. Will you like to call him now?”
“No..I will do that tomorrow”
“Come here witch”
I motioned to Kira to rest her head on my chest
“You should prepare to sleep now”
“It still early Darius and … You haven’t told me how you learn to braid”
“Well…a female friend of mine taught me how to braid”
I closed my eyes trying to neglect the images trying to flood my mind
“Your girlfriend?”
“I never said that”
“Then she was your lover?”
I didn’t reply as She teased
“Hmm guess I’m right after all…you had learned it just to braid your lover’s hair”
She glanced up at me with a smile on her face
“I said a female friend not a lover..witch”
“Okay..tell me about your love life then”
“What?! There is no way I’m sharing that aspect of my life with you”
“Why?”
I was silent..my love Life? I don’t want to talk about it with anyone… It a story I don’t want to remember
“Nothing”
I said to Kira
“Okay”
“So when will you like to call your parents again?”
“I don’t know Darius… I will just send them messages for now”
“Why didn’t you ask Lana about Max?”
“Nothing Darius”
She replied me sharply. I shouldn’t have mentioned that
“I’m sorry for asking”
“It okay”

THE RED HAIRED WITCH
EPISODE •• FORTY •• SIX
THEME: A CALL TO MUMBAI!
ZONDAEL MOUNTAIN
IN THE KITCHEN
Kira POV
I was welcomed by the smell of bacon and egg in the air when I walked into the kitchen. Darius was in there with an apron on him
“Morning Darius” I greeted him cheerfully as I moved to the refrigerator to grab a bottle of water
“I like your look and mood this morning” Darius said as he wipe his hands clean on a napkin
“Tell me what’s behind this bright smile and happy look this morning”
“Come on Darius…stop making it sound as if I never smiled since I got here”
“Of course you smiled..but not as bright as this one you have on now”
“Silly” I giggled
I served myself some bacon and egg
“Seems like you’re accustomed to my cooking now”
“Yeah”
“So what do you plan to do today?”
“Read some books…what about you?”
“Gather woods for the fireplace… Winter is almost here…probably in a week time”
“But why gather wood when I can provide it?”
“No thanks Witch”
“Huh? Why?”
Darius leaned on the countertop,as he did, he leaned forward. Just slightly…His smile crooked and devilish.. He didn’t say anything and I just stared at him. Did he have to have those cute eyes they made it hard for me to maintain my train of thought? Why is he looking at me this way? And why smiling a secret smile that seemed like he was in love..every minute that he leaned there made my mind want something entirely different. He searched my face while my gaze fell on his lips… Darius stared. Or was he actually going to kiss me? No! I hiccupped at the thought of Darius lips on mine
“Sorry”
He said in a soft voice and I hiccupped again. I shouldn’t be having such thought but he caused it. Why stare at me that way..like he was flirting with his eyes
“Let me get you water”
“I..I..I have one here”
I pointed to the bottle on the countertop
“Oh drink up then” he said in a soft,husky voice.
“Don’t..don’t do this to me again, okay?” I said in a quiet voice
“Don’t do what to you?…I’m just standing here,enjoying the view…”
“That…you are not standing you were leaning to close like..you wanted to..”
“To what?” I looked up,my gaze attached itself to his lips..a smirk played on it
“Don’t flirt with me”
“Flirt?!” He chuckled
“I wasn’t flirting…I wanted to tell you that I do like to gather sticks myself without a witch help cause I wanna feel stressed”
Maybe I over reacted! I fixed my gaze on my plate
“You are the one trying to flirt… You actually think I was going to kiss you like that… Look I know I’m handsome and I also know that I have sexy lips…”
I definitely don’t want to talk about this..I’m so embarrassed! Especially now that the air around us seemed to have taken a shift to intimacy
“But your lips is also pretty and cute but not sexy”
I glanced up at him. A devilish smile at the corner of his lips. He had been staring at mine too!
“That was the view I was talking about.. Your face and all”
“Hey Darius”
I raised my shoulder a little taller, a little straighter. Now the ball is in my court. So in a stronger voice I said
“How long have you noticed that I have a cute lips…how long have you been staring?”
“Just now…I look at it each time I look at your face..just like how am doing now”
He shrugged and pouted like a little child and I laughed
“Hey when are you going to call Kyle? Am sure your parents would have informed him that you called” He changed the topic
“I will do that when I finish eating”
“You’re done eating”
He nudged his head towards the plate in front of me. It was empty! I didn’t even notice my small meal was over
“Let’s go”
“Are you not going to eat?
“Am not hungry”
“You are never hungry Darius”
He dropped the plate into the sink. We both walked out of the kitchen.
“Do you remember where I dropped my cellphone?”
“Uhmmm..maybe you should check your room”
“Yeah”
Darius dashed into his room but came back with nothing
“I can’t find it”
I looked at him from head to toe
“Have I grown two heads?”
He asked
“No” i shook my head
“Your phone is in your pocket”
I pointed to his right Jean pocket
“Oh I didn’t even know it was in here!”
He brought out the phone from his pocket
“Here you go”
He dropped it on the couch beside me before he lay down on the couch opposite the one I sat on
“You want to sleep Darius?”
“I want to take a nap”
“Okay”
I swiped and clicked on the screen to connect with the Mumbai number Lana sent

MUMBAI
REYANSH MANSION
IN KYLE BEDROOM
Kyle POV
I woke up to the loud pinging of my phone. I reached out for the device which was under the pillow next to the one I was resting on. I had left it there after having a long chat with Lana. She informed me that Kira called and I was glad to hear that Kira finally called home and I hoped that she reach out to me too since Lana sent my Mumbai number to her. I rubbed my sleepy eyes and I saw an unknown number displayed on the screen. It could be Kira! I switched on the lights at the snap of my fingers using my powers in the process. I swiped to accept the video call and then I screamed when I saw Kira’s beautiful face on the screen
“Hello bad boy” she greeted with a bright smile on her face
“Hello My Red twin sister” she laughed
“It really nice to see you again…I mean.. I’m super excited to talk to you Kira!”
“Aww…do you miss me that much?”
“Yes of course! Zoe! Don’t you miss me too?”
“I do miss you…our arguments,your troubles…your sleep talks of love confessions” she giggled
“Do you always hear me confessing love in my sleep?”
“Yes..you do that almost every night”
“how do you manage to hear me?” I asked jokingly
“Oh! I forgot you are a witch! A red one at that!”
“Exactly…I can hear things from far if I want to”
“Yeah I can do that also”
“Guess you’ve learnt a lot of things from your master”
“Yeah a lot than I expected”
“So how is India?” I sighed
“India agrees with me..and the people around me have been good to me”
“Good to hear that Zach”
“What about you?”
“Am good”
“Where are you exactly?”
“Somewhere safe Zach”
“Where? Which country? Which state? Or which continent?”
“I don’t know Zach”
“How come you don’t know where you are? That impossible! Zoe”
“I don’t know the country, state,area or continent… All I know is that I’m safe here… As you can see I’m in a house..a good one”
She turned the camera away from her face and showed me the neatly decorated house
“And I’m relaxing on a nice couch” then I heard a small laugh – it wasn’t from Kira cause she was looking at me. Someone is with her!
“Who is there with you?”
“My protector”
“Who is your protector?”
“Who else?”
“Oh! That strange guy that abducted you”
“Exactly”
“You are living alone with a stranger! He is a man! You shouldn’t be alone with him”
“Zach stop that idea in your head”
“No..no..no Zoe I’m a guy and I know how hard it is to control oneself whenever I’m alone with a girl…it damn hard if she is so beautiful”
Kira laughed out loud.. Now she thinks am joking
“Oh Kyle you’re so funny…but i understand what you are trying to say even if you twisted the whole thing”
“I’m saying the truth.. You shouldn’t trust a total stranger Zoe”
“Darius is not a stranger to me Kyle – I’ve been with him since the last two months”
“And he didn’t make any advances?”
“Kyle!”
“What?!”
“Darius is a nice guy -”
“Just like what you said when Jace came to our school..but what happened with Jace?”
She didn’t respond
“Well I will tell you…Jace turned out to be Max Torres, a deceiver,a user,a liar. And he even denied knowing you – someone who doesn’t care about your feelings or emotions. I don’t mean to hurt you with my words but all saying is that you shouldn’t be quick to trust people”
“I..I..I understand you…what you’re trying to say Kyle”
“Thank goodness you understand me”
“Okay…I only called to say hi. Bye”
“Thank -”
She hang up before I completed my intended words

ZONDAEL MOUNTAIN
Darius POV
“Are you okay?”
I asked Kira who was staring at the phone in her hand
“Yes I’m fine”
She gave the phone back to me and walked towards the direction of her room. Kira was sad because of what Kyle had said to her..he shouldn’t have said those words to her like that when he was aware that anything about Jace or Max would hurt Kira. I dialed Kyle’s number but as a call not a video call. Kyle picked on the second ring
“Hello Kira.. I’m sorry for what I said the other time..I don’t mean to hurt you with my words”
I listened to Kyle apologize
“You should be more than sorry for what you said to your sister”
“Where is Kira?”
He asked in a stern voice
“Why are you the one talking to me?”
“You have no idea of what she’s been through just in the name of protecting herself! You don’t know how worried she used to be about everyone of you each passing day”
“We never asked you to take her away from us..you only decided that on your own..you are wrong if you think you are protecting her! Bring her back home and let protect her ourselves”
A loud growl reverberated from the back of my throat
“I won’t do that..I intend to keep her for a long time” I grounded
“You must be joking” he spat
“I’m not in for jokes Kyle! I mean business whenever it comes to protecting someone important and useful to the universe. Call Her anytime you are ready to talk like a gentleman without hurting her with your words”
I hang up the call before making my way into Kira’s bedroom
“Can I come in?”
I asked after knocking but got no response. I twisted the knob and slide into her room. I heard soft sobs coming from her bed. Kira was crying under the bed cover. I cleared my throat
“Are you crying because of what Kyle said to you?”
She didn’t reply
“You don’t have to take his words serious Kira”
I pulled at the cover but she held on tightly
“Listen Kira – I want you to know that -”
I paused – what should I say to her?
“He shouldn’t have talked to me like that”
She said amidst tears
“I was so happy to see him,so happy to talk to him but he ended up slapping me in the face with the talks of Max….I was only trying to tell him you are a good guy..and that you never made any advances to me..but Kyle doesn’t understand me”
“Sh sh…I understand you”
I removed the bed cover. Kira sat up gently and wiped her tears
“I know you were only trying to defend me”
She nodded
“Just forget what Kyle said to you okay?”
“Yes”
“Promise me you won’t cry about it anymore”
She nodded slowly
“In words Kira”
“I promise”
“Fine..I’ll go ahead and gather some sticks for the fireplace”
“I wanna come along Darius”
“What about reading books?”
“I will do that Later…I don’t want to be alone”
“Okay let’s go”
She climbed out of bed and put on her slippers
“Someone needs a ride?”
“What ride?”
“A ride on my back”
“No I can walk!”
“Yes I know you can walk”
Kira laughed
“Should I get water Darius?”
She asked when we stepped out of her room
“Yes..yes grab two bottles”
Kira disappeared. I made my way to the sitting room to grab the phone. Kira appeared again with two bottles of water in her hand
“Ready?”
“Yes”
She spread out her arms…I know what that means. Kira doesn’t want to use the door,she want us to disappear instead.
“Come on Darius”
“Okay..Witch”
She giggled as I hugged her and we varnished
