“That’s enough.” His voice made Rajdeep’s ear ring. Like an Angel of death. “Drop it.” Rajdeep shifted down enough so that he was able to see Obe and his people in his peripheral vision.
“After they drop theirs.” Rajdeep was cornered, he could feel Nazik and well as the other man’s blood running cold at his bare feet.
“You first.” Obe insisted, pressing his sword against Rajdeep’s skin but not hard enough to break his skin. Damn. How am I going to get out of this? I’m sure if I try attack another of his men, Obe would strike me down and if I tried to attack Obe himself....his men would strike me down as well. Either way I’m a dead man.... but I refuse to drop my weapon like a coward. A sharp yank sent Rajdeep staggering. Obe grabbed the spear from him then went on to kick him in his chest, sending him flying. Rajdeep flew across the room with an untimely crash into the wall. He felt as though he was being suffocated. He gasped for air, clawing at the chain even though it wasn’t the chain making it hard to breath. Sweat began to bead down his face, his vision wavered.

I opened my eyes. I stared at the figure sitting in the edge of my bed. I tired as much as possible to hold back the scream threatening to unleash itself. Slowing reached for my lamp and I turned it on. The figure disappears. Maybe it was just my imagination?
I turned the lamp off and screamed at the top of my lungs when the figure returned, sitting in the same exact spot.

"You wanted to see me, Mr. Pereira?" I asked, as I closed the door behind me. He smirked. He twirl his black pen between his fingers.
"Yes. Please sit down," he says. I bite inside of my cheek as I sat down. Oh my god what ridiculous errand does he want me to do now.
"Ok--" I trailed of when I saw the tape. I looked at him flabbergasted. Where did he find this." How did you--"
"Not important," he says cutting me of," all you need to worry about is me...advising it?" No. He can't. He just can't.
Tears burned my eyes." Please you can't. It'll--"
"Ruin you? Why yes, yes it will." he smirked." But I'll have a proposition ." He gets up, and strides behind of me. My heart began to race when his large hands drop to my shoulder then slowly glides down my jacket and began buttoning it.
