Varun - Chapter 20CHAPTER 20
Sir, the combatants have the target, a woman said as she walked into Stillers office. His desk sat behind him in darkness, perpendicular to the windows he was looking out of.
Stiller stood at the full length windows lining one wall in absolute silence. He didnt move at all, as if he were frozen.
The woman waited patiently, her red hair curving around the shape of her face in a fashionable bob. Copper streaks lined her hair and shone in the pale light.
Sir? she finally asked, tempted to straighten the skirt of her light brown two piece suit.
And Varun? Stiller asked in such a tone that it made the woman gulp.
He is gone. I expect he is to be given another assignment, the woman said. She noticed then that Stiller had his fists tensed, his knuckles white. As he gritted his teeth, he said, I thought I said now I want him dead. He will not be on our side, so we need him gone for good. Who knows, this might not be t
Varun - Chapter 19CHAPTER 19
Varun and Skylar stopped off at a café on the roadside at lunchtime for, though they had made a few stops before to stretch their legs, they hadnt had anything to eat and Skylar was definitely hungry as she hadnt even had a peck of food at the hotel.
There werent many people in the shop so that gave them some needed privacy. Skylar had refused to go in, but Varun knew that she needed her strength, so he had grabbed her by her arm and almost dragged her into the café. Skylar had put up a protest at first, but soon quietened down and walked with him, realising at how much of a fool she looked.
Once they had sat down at an isolated table, Skylar glared daggers at Varun. Still, Varun took no notice and that infuriated her even more.
Varun stared into nothing for a while, his elbow resting on the table, his balled up fist pressing into his cheek as his blank expression intimidated some children a few table away. Eventually, though, he turned his eyes t
Varun - Chapter 18CHAPTER 18
Varun woke in the late evening feeling content and wide awake, a dark air cast over him from the dark skies. He opened his eyes to see the curtains were open and the stars shining brilliantly outside, the moon letting in a pale glow. Oh great. Had he really slept that long? He had to check Skylar was okay. He had only wanted to nap for an hour or two.
Still, he didnt notice that he wasnt alone until he moved a little.
He furrowed his brow in confusion before he looked down to see an arm draped over him. Thats when he felt something touching his back.
As he turned his head to look behind him, he saw brown hair and immediately recognised it as Skylar.
What the hell, he jumped, utterly surprised that Skylar would be sleeping that close to him. Didnt he upset her and scare her too much? Because he had jumped so much, he fell off the edge of the bed, causing him to hit the floor hard. Luckily, he didnt hit his head on the bedside tab
Varun - Chapter 17CHAPTER 17
Get off of her! Zelda yelled, swiping her sword through all the Cricks, striking the one on Cathys face first.
Thanks, Cathy exhaled then took in deep breaths as she pushed herself to her feet. Zelda handed her a double-edged sword, Here. Some guys giving them out. Lets sort out these Cricks.
Yeah, Cathy said hoarsely as she rubbed her throat then swiped at a few Cricks at her feet, ignoring the pain in her arm the best she could. Apart from the blood of both Cricks and humans, the screeching of the creatures and the screams of agony and fear from humans were filling the air and sending shivers down Cathys spine. It all sounded horrific and the room was in utter chaos. Everywhere she looked there were creatures attacking and suffocating humans while they took down the Black Dragon. Fire filled the room, setting alight anyone in the path of the Dragons attack.
Hell! How can we get out of this?
Varun - Chapter 16CHAPTER 16
Varun glanced at Skylar as he drove into a parking lot. She was hunched slightly, wary as she searched the area with her eyes. He sighed and reassured her, Things are fine over here for a while.
He parked in a bay and got out of the car, with Skylar getting out the other side slowly. Raising an eyebrow, he asked, You alright? She really did seem terrified and overly paranoid.
Yeah, Skylar forced out as she nodded, Christian he was he was hurt And all for me too.
Hell be fine. Trust me, Varun said as he looked at the hotel the car park was in front of. Skylar was starting to get on his nerves with her nervousness and hunched exterior if only because it looked very suspicious. She had to relax and looked normal to blend in the crowd the best she could.
Come on, he sighed, Were staying here.
Skylar hurried over to him and he was taken by surprise when she cuddled h
Varun - Chapter 15CHAPTER 15
In the morning Varun woke bright and early. He rubbed the sleep from his eyes before he got dressed into his clothes and headed downstairs to the kitchen where he put two slices of bread in the toaster. Wicklow was sat in the living room reading as Varun could hear the brush of pages turning. When Varun had sorted out his breakfast he carried his plate into the living room and joined Wicklow, sitting in the armchair. Wicklow was sat on the sofa he had sat in the day before, facing the window. It seemed to be his favourite seat in the room.
When you going? Wicklow asked, looking up from his book to Varun.
When shes ready, Varun said and took a bite out of his jam covered toast. Wicklow studied Varun for a few moments before he returned to his book.
You know, he said after reading a few more lines, She likes you. He said it so simply and matter-of-factly that Varun wasnt sure if he was joking or not.
