Encounter

It’s been a week since we won. I’m in the office right now gathering all the files to bring them to Jimmy’s office. I went in, but no one is there. I call his name. No response. I call him, but he didn’t pick up. After calling three times, I give up. I call one of his men and he pick up.

“Hello Nathan, do you know where is Jimmy?”

“Uhm he’s busy right now, I’ll tell him to call you back later,” he replied.

I hang up the phone and went back to his room and look over at his desk. I walk over and saw a note. I pick it up and read, ‘hey little buddy, we will make you suffer...’ I was shock looking at the paper. I quickly run out the room and went to the security camera room.

“Hello, who are you, why are you in here?” one of the security person said.

“Ohh, I’m the boss secretary, and I need to see who else went into his room except me,” I said quickly.

The person went to the computer and start clicking buttons and the screen show up Jimmy’s room. We look at the screen closely and there, we saw a person walking in, but we couldn’t see closely.

He look at me and I sign. “Thank you.” I walk out the room and went to the room.

I sit down and close my eye thinking hardly on who that person is. 

I decided to call Nathan again, but Jimmy call me. I pick up and he said to stay in the office right now. He sounded nervous, but I still said okay. After a few minute I can’t get Jimmy’s voice off my mind, so I grab my belonging and went home. 

I got home and there are security outside. I run to the door, but they stop me. I push them off and run in. I see Jimmy, his men, and my step parents. I walk in slowly and call “Jimmy?” 

He look over at me and widen his eye. “S-Serena what are y-you doing here?”

“Jimmy what are you guys doing?” completely ignoring his question.

“Hello Serena, are you happy to see me?” My step dad asked.

I look over at him and walk toward him, but Jimmy quickly pull me back. 

“What are you guys doing?” I asked again.

“Serena, you shouldn’t be here rig-,” I cut him off.

“Answer. My. Question.” I demanded.

“I’ll tell you Serena. Your dad and I came here because we want to apologize to what we did before.” My step mom said.

Jimmy scoff and reply, “that’s false.”

I look at Jimmy and back at my step parent. My parent then make a weird face and their guards start shooting Jimmy’s men. 

I fell down on the floor and cover my head with my hands. I glance over and see Jimmy running towards me. 

“Serena, you okay?”, he asks nervously.

I shake my head as he continue to shoot them.

After a few minutes my step parent’s guard are all down. 

“Give up, you will never win,” Jimmy demanded.

“Haven’t shoot in a long time,” my step dad said.

“Jimmy, what are they doing here?” I asked. 

“I told you, I’m here to apologize,” my step dad reply while smirking.

“Stop lying!”

“I’m not!” 

Jimmy signal Nathan to pull them out. To my surprise they cooperate and left. 

“Just wait Jimmy and you too, Serena,” he said gritting his teeth.”

Jimmy help me up as he soften his suit.

“Jimmy, what are they doing here?”

“I-I um-.” 

“Never mind, you don’t seem to want to answer me,” I said.

He nodded slowly then look up at me. “Are you mad?”

“No, I’m not cause they probably same to find trouble.” There is a pause before Jimmy asked me if I’m hungry. “Nope, are you?”

He shake is head no.

I nodded my head and went upstairs to get ready to sleep. 

“Do you guys think, it was right for me to not answer her?”

“Umm, I don’t think so since it might affect her and she’s stress out. I can see it on her face,” Nathan explained.

Jimmy sign and went upstairs to his room while the others just look at each other before heading to their rooms.
