Alexios & Elysia #19


“What do you mean, ‘just as you thought?'” I jumped back into my seat from the force of the smash and Tommy’s words.

He completely ignored my question. “Stay here. Lock the door. I’m going outside.” He said in a firm voice, placing his hand inside his jacket pocket to check for something. He closed the door behind him and although I tried to see what was going on, I couldn’t because the windows were foggy. I knew Alexios was out there. It had to be him.

Tommy tricked me. I wouldn’t go to his place so he tried to get Alexios to come to us. He knew Alexios was following us from the ballet.

I heard a banging against the car. They were fighting now. I felt anxious and my mouth became dry. One of them was going to die tonight. My heart beat so fast. I couldn’t breathe in the car.

I didn’t want neither Alexios nor Tommy to die. I unlocked the door.

I was going to stop them.
