Hell’s Nest – Episode 10

A story by Goddy Francis

* CHRISTIAN *.

” Hey Chris , you’ve heard ?” Jones asked.

” Heard what ?”

” Look.” He said stretching a newspaper at me.

I collected it and read the headline.

I was dumb struck.

” Yeah , Jade’s dead. Your petite girlfriend.” Jones said and sat down.

” I don’t get it , an accident ?”

” Chris you saw it on the news paper, it’s written on it, so broad.”

” God , this world is crazy, Jade is dead just like that.”

” Yeah weird , her parents took her body to the mortuary, she will be buried this weekend.”

I sighed and eventually sighed again.

” I need to take a walk.” I said and walked out.

I walk to a beach close to my house, it was so isolated. I stood by the shore and thought about Jade’s mysterious death. Jordan also filled my memory, I wanted to talk to her but Giselle Is trying to make things difficult for me.

I stayed there for a while when I saw something on the water, it looks like someone who drowned. I walk to where this person was lying and it was Jordan.

” Jeez..” I said and lifted her up.

I carried her and took her to my house and hurriedly lay on my bed. She got up at once and threw up water.

I stood still and watch her.

” You’re okay ?” I asked.

” Why did you bring me here ? ” She asked standing up.

” You might wanna shower.” I said.

She sighed and stare at me in rage.

” I wanna go home.”

” You can’t just go home like that , you need to take a bath and I’ll drive you home.”

She kept quiet and looked outside.

” Why would you want to take your life ? Drowning is not a solution.”

” Where is your bathroom ?” She asked ignoring my comment.

” Right there.” I said pointing it to her.

She remained mute and left for my bathroom. I sighed and cleaned the floor.

” You brought in a girl ?” Jones asked in the kitchen.

” Who’s she ?” he added.

” Some one you know. She’s the one I told you about.”

” Your dream girl ?”

I chuckled disappointed and sighed.

” I hope so.”

” Weird. She’s pretty.”

I sighed deeply and carried the tea to my room. Jordan was still bathing. I dropped it on the table and walked to the bathroom door.

I stood there and knocked slightly..

” Hey , I made tea for you , you should take it before I take you home. ” I said but she didn’t answer.

” Jordan you’re there ?” I asked and she didn’t reply.

I heard the noise of my shower , but she wasn’t saying a word. I walked out of the door post and left. After a while I returned and knocked, she didn’t reply. I opened the door gently she was already dressed.

” You didn’t drink it ?”

” I didn’t tell you I was thirsty.” She said and turned to look at me sed-ctively.

” Alright.. you ready to go ?”

She nodded and refused to talk.

” Sorry about that..”

She smiled and nodded Childishly , I led her to my car outside and helped her with the door. She entered and remain quiet till I drove her home.

” So..?” I asked outside the house.

” So you should be leaving..” she said and laugh.

” I guess..” I blurted.

I exhale and stare at her for a second.

” I really wanna know why you tried to kill yourself ?”

She kept quiet and wrap her hands around herself.

” You can talk to me alright . I’m not a novice because I already knew everything . ”

She gasped and wanted to talk when I stopped her.

” No you shouldn’t freak out , Giselle didn’t tell me. She was nice, she’s trying to protect the love ones around you. I found out myself , but all of that don’t matter, why would you wanna take your life by committing suicide ?”

She cried softly and I console her.

” When I was young I was always bullied by fellow school mates or classmates, they call me the weird nerd. At fifteen I isolated myself from friends , I don’t talk to anyone and I’m always alone. My mom was my best friend , she was my everything. She was always there for me and she gave me this bracelet when she was really sick. She called it a lucky pearl..” she said and smiled at the bracelet.

” Have you ever take it off ?”

” No.” She replied.

” Why ?”

” Because I can’t , you may wanna try.” She said and stretch her hands to me.

I held her wrist and tried to take it off , it was really hard. I tried continually but it couldn’t pull off.

” Woah .” I said dropping her hand.

” It’s enchanted , you can’t take it off.”

” Why ? I mean how did your mom gave it to you if you can’t take it off ?”

” Still can’t figure it out. It’s magical and it connects to my memory or affection.”

” I believe you just made that up ?” I ask and she chuckled.

” Yeah , but I still don’t know how my mom got it off..”

” Alright..”

” But why would you wanna get it off ?” Jordan asked.

” Nothing just wanna know.”

” Cool , I should start going..”

” Wait , just wanna say something before you leave.” I said and she smiled.

” Alright , go on.”

I sighed deeply and sighed again , seems I was short of word.

” Jordan what ever thing that happen to us , either bad or worse we should never think about taking our lives it’s not worth it. You have better days ahead of you and I truly wish you could see it. ”

She smiled and stare into my eyes.

” You know I’m really sorry about our last meeting , I was so rude I get it and I’m truly sorry. I just wanna get you out of my head.”

” What ?” I ask surprised.

” No don’t take that personal, pretend as if I didn’t say it.”

I smiled and nodded.

” I’m truly sorry.”

” It’s okay , I understand..”

She smiled and k-ssed me at once , I was so stoked, I had to k-ss her back .

Giselle walk in and cleared her throat.

” Hey G.” I said and she nodded mischievously.

” I should leave you.” Jordan said and walked out greeting Giselle.

” Christian ?”

” Look Giselle chill out..”

” Did you hide her ?”

” I didn’t , Jordan tried to commit suicide..”

” For real ?” She asked.

” Yeah , she was washed ashore.”

” God why will she wants to commit suicide ?”

” No idea , maybe you just need to watch her closer.”

” I should leave you..”

” No you won’t , I saw something. What’s that ?” She asked and winked.

” What ?” I ask.

I know where she was driving at.

” Christian you know what I’m talking about , you guys k-ssed.”

” Oops I don’t even remember , bummer huh ?” I said and chuckled.

” That’s not funny , I hope you know what you’re getting yourself into ?” Giselle asked.

” Yeah , I truly like Jordan, I know she’s you know..”

” Yeah I get it , just be careful. I hope you don’t get hurt.” Giselle said and I nodded.

” I should leave now ”

” Be careful..” she said and waved and I drove away.

* GISELLE *

.

I watched Christian drove away and I sighed.

” Poor thing..” I said in my thoughts and left.

I climbed upstairs to Jordan’s room , i opened the door slowly as she turned to look at at me in rage.

” Giselle you should learn to knock.”

Alright that was unusual and disrespectful.

” Sorry about that.” I said standing on her door post.

She was getting off her clothes to bathe.

” What do you want ?” She asked in a very annoying manner.

” Just wanted to check on you , Christian told me something..”

” You should leave..” Jordan fired.

I kept quiet and watch her walk to her mirror to look at her reflection.

She removed her dress and I saw something.

An hexagon triangle symbol on her back and The eye of Providence on her shoulder close to her back bone.

I gasped in fear and returned my gaze to Jordan who was already staring at me through the mirror.

” Your days are numbered..” She said in a ghostly man’s voice and walked into her bathroom.

” God have mercy.” I said and walked out closing her door gently.

What could a triangle symbol be doing on Jordan’s back. That was a bad sign. Who gave her that tattoo of a triangle ?

The eye of Providence was the most weird one. I went over to my room and called the parish priest.

” Giselle..”

” Good evening father.”

” Evening Giselle, is everything okay ”

” Not at all father , I saw something really weird today..” I said and pace around.

Jordan walk in staring at me in anger.

” What did you see ?” The priest ask on the phone.

Jordan’s eyes were really red and abnormal.

I ended the call and turned to look at her.

” You’re just an irritating gossip. Must you tell my issues to people ?”

” Jordan it’s not what you think..” I protested.

” Oh shut up.” She ordered.

Okay cool, that was unexpected , he was trying to use her again.

” I heard you , gossiping me to your stupid parish priest.” She said and took a step forward.

” I was serious when I said your days are numbered..” Jordan said her pointed her finger to my face.

I felt a force trying to strangle me , my voice started fading , I couldn’t feel myself anymore I was loosing it.

I choke and catch for breath , but I couldn’t find it I fell to the ground and everything was void.
