Like a black rose, her darkness is beautifully fatal.
~Third Person's Point of View~
Red secretly came inside the house. There were two men guarding the front door that's why he didn't enter in that way, and managely got inside through windows. When he got inside the only thing that he noticed was the two suspicious white door at right and left of the concrete stairs. It goes to the second floor of this house. He was amused at first he entered the house, because he thought that the interior would be looked like old and that all the furnitures will be antiqued, but it was not. The only archaic looking was on exterior design of the house while the interior was made in modern style, but the house didn't have a chandelier. The light from outside coming through windows was the only source of light, that's why there was still a bit of brightness inside the house.
Red took advantage of the darkness to be freely moving around the house. His goals were to get information about the mastermind in the house and to look for Zoey.
Red looked up at the center of the lobby. Up there waz a black flag with a logo of a skull inside the mouth of a snake. That was what the logo that Red saw on Zoey's t-shirt, and he had knowledge about that logo. That was the reason why he asked Zoey about her job and followed her, because staying longer on that job will put her to death.
One night ago, Red and the other two, Geo and Agatha, were watching news on TV. A news about missing people from the branches of a company. Every Friday night, three employees of the company were gone missing. This company was about making candies, and one of its branches were making snake-shape candies in different colors. What Red discovered was that those snake candy branches were the source of human trafficking of Worz's dangerous man, Circus. The logo of this candy is a rainbow colored candy inside the mouth of a snake, which is similar to the logo on the black flag he saw above of the lobby. That's the dark form of the logo.
Red wants to see this most dangerous man, Circus. They've been looking for this man that's why they became assassins. They want to kill him and take revenge for the victims that Circus used to traded with traffickers, including his sister.
"You're really serious on this thing huh, Sera." Red said while leaning on the wall and watching her sister Sera, packing her things.
"Of course, if not, how will I enjoy the rest of my life if I just stay here and be imprisoned by dad."
He could tell that she was really in one hundred percent sure of her decision, and she was the type of person that never let anyone stopped her from what she wanted. Red just shrugged while he took one of Sera's baggages.
"You'll miss my cooking." Red reminded her as they took the hallway leaving the room.
"Doesn't matter." Sera was behind him.
"You'll miss mom."
"Mom will be the one who'll gonna miss me."
"You'll miss Fluffy."
"I'll take him then."
"You'll miss dad's scolds."
"Not even a single minute."
"You'll miss your bed."
"I'll buy the softest one."
"You'll miss your beautiful clothes."
"Don't need them anymore."
"You will miss each other, duh!" Agatha exclaimed as she suddenly popped up between them from behind and hugged them, resting her arms on their shoulders.
"Agatha, you surprise me! What made you come here? I thought you're gonna out of town."
"Well, change of mind. I decided to see you off."
"Then, if you're here... (Geo popped out from Agatha's back) I knew it. Agatha is no longer a brat, Geo. She doesn't need a chaperone. Maybe, a lover?"
"Sera!!" Agatha shouted as she slightly slapped Sera's arm.
"Ahahaha! Just kidding." Sera giggled while giving Agatha and Geo a grin smile.
"Don't worry, sis. These two will end up together and you'll be their children's grandma." Red uttered leading the walk, but because of what he said he got a fist bump on the head by Sera.
"You really never stop calling me grandma, you monkey."
"Seems like this is really gonna happen, Sera. Living a normal life outside the wall." Geo said, diverting the topic.
Sera just showed a slight smile, "Yes, once in our life time we should choose what we really want to do. The decision that will make us free and happy, and I'm doing this because I love myself."
"We are not torturing you here though." Red said.
As Sera heard that, she ran and immediately jumped on his back while she locked his neck with her right arm and scratching his head with her left fist, "Isn't having a super stubborn and troublemaker little brother is already a torture for me, huh~"
"Aw, Aw, Aw! Hey! Get down, piggy granny!" Red whined while trying to pull down his sister from his back. Geo and Agatha laughed watching the sibling teasing each other. Even though from now on they will no longer see each other every day, for sure they won't forget the memories they've built inside the wall, and will make more outside.
And they were aware that what awaits Sera outside the wall will be difficult. "Will you be fine out there, Sera?" Agatha asked as she walked next beside her.
"Yeah, it'll be dangerous for you." Red agreed while fixing his hair that got crumbled by Sera.
"And we won't be there at your side to protect you." Geo reminded her.
She looked at each one of them as she displayed her grateful smile. Ever since childhood, she was always the one who needed protection by these three even though she was the oldest.
"I choose this path because I want to see the real world and embrace it, and of course, there will be times that I'll suffer, that's part of the life I'm heading to, because not always there will be just happiness. I decide to leave because I want to feel that I'm alive through living outside these walls."
Then, she looked up the big wall in front of them as they were getting closer on that. And when they reached the wooden gate, Sera immediately felt the wind that welcomed them.
Sera turned around and faced Red, Agatha, and Geo, then she smiled very lovingly at them while waving them. She noticed that Red was looking at her sadly, "I promise I won't regret this decision, Aries." her last words to Red as she set off.
Red was just looking at her sister and couldn't help not to get worried about her.
-End of Flashback-
Sera spent her life in the city for several months and they hardly visited each other. But they were able to keep in touch through mails. And since the last time they received her last mails, they decided to meet up with her and went to her rental house which only made them know that she was already gone missing. That's been almost four years ago, and till now they still have hope that she's alive. She is the reason why they leave behind walls of that place and became assassins.
And Red grabbed this opportunity to finally get a lead of their very own mission; to catch Circus and save Sera.
Red sneakily went inside the white door on the left as he saw two men came out of it.
"I hope she's in here..." he whispered while hiding behind the big black curtain that was hanging on the wall of the corridor he was in. Behind the white door was a long empty corridor, which at the end was another door and that the walls were being covered by the black curtains, and the source of light was only from the one bulb at the center of the ceiling. So, he was not worrying that he might get caught.
Using the black curtains, he went straight at the end of the corridor till he reached the door. He slowly and carefully opened the door to the very slightest, and took a peak on what was inside. What he saw was a group of girls sitting in one corner while their hands and legs were being tied up. In the center of the room, he saw Zoey standing there with two guns at her back.
And it seemed to him that Zoey was guarding the girls.
For some reason, he was staring at her. Looking at her from head to toe, and as what he usually seeing from her, she waz wearing a black t-shirt, black fitted leather pants, and black boots. But aside her way of dressing, her aura was shining to his eyes, even though she has horns on her head. Adding her black long silk hair, she was like a black rose in his eyes.
It's beauty was deadly.
