Montigo Tango: Chapter 29, Birth of Torq Lex

Months earlier….

With Niro following Jade to Malachi’s house, Malachi knew there was no way he could keep Niro locked up without Cira noticing. Malachi then decided to glamour Cira by telling her that Niro was here to live with them as a family cause Malix had left with Nyx and Nina. With Cira under another spell of Malachi, she now believes Niro is living there with them. Since Niro is just a child, Malachi can’t risk glamouring Niro fearing the process could possibly harm his fragile mind. Niro being a mere child, Malachi knew it would be easy to convince him to staying and not saying a word to anyone.

 

 

Malachi carefully unlocks the cell room that once held Cira. Niro cowering in the corner looks up to see Malachi now standing in the room. “Who.. who are you?” Asked Niro as his bottom lip trembles in fear. Malachi smiles at a frighten Niro, “Calm down my boy.. You don’t need to be afraid of me. My name is Malachi Lex, I’m your real Grandfather.” Niro focus his teary red eyes on Malachi’s face and notices he looks similar to his father Malix. “You are? But why am I locked in this room? It’s very cold in here…” Said Niro with child like innocence in his tone.  Malachi reaches his hand out to help pull up Niro from the cold cement floor.

“I’m sorry about that son, you see that door gets stuck sometimes.”

“Where’s my Mommy? I know she’s here.”

“She’s waiting for you.”

“I wanna see her!”

“You will but I must tell you something first.”

“What?”

“Your mother is staying here with me and she wants you to stay with us.”

“My daddy said mommy was kidnapped.”

“I know but she wasn’t really kidnapped. She ran away and she came to me.”

“But why? Mommy loves daddy. My daddy was sad when mommy was missing.”

“It was all a act.. Your daddy was hurting mommy so she ran away. I saved your mommy from your daddy. He was a mean man.”

“My daddy was hurting mommy?”

“Yes, son.”

“I’m confused..”

“I know son, but now you can stay here but you can never leave this house. Some other bad people are after your mommy too and they want to hurt her. But promise me you won’t say any of this to your mommy. It would upset her, she doesn’t want you to know about this. Okay son?”

“Okay.. I promise but what about school?”

“We will home school you. Want to see mommy now?”

“Yes!”

 

 

Malachi opens the door and Niro races towards Cira with his arms up in the air. “Mommy!” Shouts Niro as he hugs his mother tight. Cira was in tears as she holds her son for the first time in years. “I’ve missed you so much!” Cried Cira. “Me too mommy!” Said Niro as he pulls away from Cira. Cira ruffle her fingers in Niro’s hair, “You’ve gotten so big.. You’re looking more like your Dad.” Niro smiles be remains silent when he glances over to Malachi who stood still behind them. “I will get you a sleeping bag for you to sleep in until I have that old room fixed for you, Niro.” Said Malachi. Niro nods and Cira heads to the kitchen to fix something for Niro to eat.

Malachi walks into his room with his phone in hand. He then dials Jade’s number and waits for her to answer.

Hello Malachi.”

“You listen here.. You get whatever money you can get from Matius and have this room fixed up for a kid since this is your fault!”

“Okay..fine.. He’s out of town but I’ll see what I can do.”

You’ll see what you could do? You will do what I say, cunt! I need that room expanded and kid friendly now!”

“Okay, okay. I will get you the money and have my people fix the room up for you.. But what do I say when Matius returns?”

“Not my problem!”

Malachi quickly hangs up on Jade.

 

 

As Malachi gets Niro settle in for the night Amos returns home with a pink haired teenage female. “Malachi.. we have a little problem here..” Said Amos. Malachi turns around and fixate his eyes on the teen. “What is she doing here?” Growled Malachi as he motions Cira and Niro to leave the room. “I’m sorry but I didn’t know what to do.. I had to bring her with me.” Said Amos trying to act brave to Malachi in front of the girl. “Chillax Gramps!” Scoffed the girl as she rolled her eyes at Malachi. “I don’t care.. What did you bring her here?!” Snapped Malachi. “Her mother went missing.. And she drank her care taker dry.. She needs training so I brought her with me. I figure it would be okay.. She’s my daughter.. I missed most of her life already..” Said Amos with a little emotion in his tone. “Oh how heart warming… You suddenly wanna be a daddy? The child goes back! We don’t have room for her.” Scoffed Malachi. Amos made a step towards Malachi, “I’m not taking Amaya back! She has no one in Bridgeport !” Malachi took a step back and laughed, “Getting bold in front of your kid, now? Touching.”

 

 

Amaya stomps her down and made a step towards Malachi, “Why are you such a douche! Some loving  Great-Grandfather you are!” Malachi raises his hand up as he were to slap his great-granddaughter Amaya but Malachi saw a glimpse of Amos and decided to back off. “Watch your mouth little girl! I can change my mind and send you both out into the streets! Try having to find a special source of blood to feed you both on your own!” Shouted Malachi. Amaya frowns her face up, “What do you mean?!”

Malachi started to laugh with a sinister tone, “You carry the same illness as your father. You and him both need a special source of blood to feed on. Fae blood. I had Fae blood shipped to your home back in Bridgeport and here once I had no use of Jade. That wasn’t regular plasma juice that you were drinking all these years. So yes I am that loving great-grandfather!” Amaya rolled her and scoffs at Malachi. “You best start behaving around here. Since you’re now staying here, you’re not allow to leave this house ever.” Said Malachi. Amaya stomps her foot down, “And why the fuck not?!” Malachi growls at Amaya, “Cause I said so! Vampires are illegal in Lucky Palms but were in the outskirts, were fine but I still don’t want you to leave this house! Do you hear me?!” Amaya rolls her eyes as she folds her arms, “Whatever..”

 

 

Niro didn’t want to sleep in the sleeping bag and asked if he could just sleep on the bed. Malachi allows it and Cira asked Niro if he like a bedtime story. “Of course mommy, I’m not too old for bedtime stories.” Smiled Niro. Niro gets comfort as Cira picks out a book for Niro. Cira read Niro a story until he fell asleep.

Cira watches her youngest child snooze away before giving him a goodnight kiss. Cira took a moment to remember when Niro was just a tiny infant and thinking about her daughters Nyx and Nina when they were little. Cira misses her daughters dearly but doesn’t understand why doesn’t she just leave. She has this uncontrollable desire to stay near Malachi. Cira doesn’t think much of Malix anymore as she still doesn’t know about his death. Cira struggles off the odd thoughts and returns to Malachi’s side.

 

 

“It’s time.” Said Malachi as he makes his way towards Cira. “Time for what?” Asked Cira. Malachi smiles and bites down on Cira’s neck before drinking Cira’s warm blood flowing from Malachi’s puncture made from his fangs. “Our baby. You’re ready.” Smiled Malachi. Cira didn’t say anything for a moment. “A baby?” Smiled Cira. “Yes my love, a baby.” Said Malachi as he holds Cira against him. Cira liked the thought of having a baby after seeing how much Niro had grown up. She felt that Niro would like being a big brother, she missed holding her 3 of her 4 kids as babies. “Let’s have our baby then.” Smiled Cira.

Malachi slowly undressed Cira which was odd of him. Malachi usually gets straight to business but Malachi wanted to take his time with Cira. Cira knew it was odd of him but didn’t say anything about it. It wasn’t long until they were both undressed and on the bed. Malachi mounted Cira on top f him and they loved the night away.

 

 

Months had passed and Cira watches Niro play outside in his new sandbox along with his niece Amaya. Cira rubs her growing pregnant belly. Niro looks up at his mother with a smile. “Is the baby a boy or girl?” Asked Niro. Cira rubs her belly once more, “It’s a boy. You’re gonna have a little brother.” Niro smiled with delight of the thought of him having a little brother. “I’m gonna have a little brother?! Cool!” Smiled Niro.

 

 

Cira smiled for a little but then frowned as she thought about her twin daughters whom she haven’t seen in years. She’s confused of why they never made a visit to see her or Niro. Cira doesn’t realized that she was abducted many years ago. Niro had kept Malachi’s promise by not telling Cira of what Malachi had told him. Niro felt if he did, then he wouldn’t see his mother again. The thought of running to the police haven’t crossed Niro’s mind yet. Cira told Niro to stay in the yard before returning inside.

 

 

Amaya scoffs as Niro plays in the sand. “Why haven’t you ran off to the police to tell them you and your mom was kidnapped?” Asked Amaya. Niro turns his head back and smiles, “Cause were weren’t. Mommy is hiding from the bad people.” Amaya laughed with sarcasm, “Hiding from the bad people? We are the bad people!” Niro rolled his eyes at Amaya, “Malachi said you’re a liar and I shouldn’t listen to anything that you say.” Amaya threw her arms up, “I’m the liar? Go figure! I hate that guy and you’re a idiot for believing him!” Niro remained quiet played in the sand.

Amaya stands up and furiously brushes the sand off from her bottom. “I’m leaving. I’ll be back in a bit. Tell no one.” Said Amaya. “But Malachi said we aren’t allow to leave. The bad people are looking for us!” Shouted Niro. Amaya laughs at Niro, “You’re such a loser. You listen to everything Malachi says? Don’t be such a goody good. I’m out, loser!” Amaya walked off as Niro watches her. Niro shakes his head, “She’s gonna get in trouble.”

 

 

Cira’s pregnancy was near it’s end and Malachi listens to his unborn son move around in Cira’s womb. “He’s gonna be a fine boy.” Smiled Malachi as he still hold his ear on Cira’s belly. “I can’t wait to meet him. What are we going to name him?” Asked Cira. Malachi lifts up and a grin forms on his face, “Torq. Torq Lex.” Cira wasn’t too keen on the name but she could see that name made Malachi very happy. “Nice.” Lied Cira.

 

One morning Cira woke in unbearable pain. She doesn’t think she ever been in this much pain with her other children. Cira arises from bed and waddles towards the kitchen. Cira was half way until she felt a warm gush of liquid flow down her legs. Cira looks down to find herself standing in a puddle. “My water just broke..” Mumble Cira before a sharp pain went across her abdomen. “Malachi! It’s time!” Shouted Cira. Malachi jumps from his bed and races to Cira’s side. It was only a few minutes until Cira and Malachi welcome a little baby into the world. Cira was amazed by how fast delivery of her now youngest child was. Cira wraps her tiny and wet baby in a blue blanket that was laying near. “Welcome to the world little, Torq.” Smiled Cira as she holds her newest addition.

Montigo Tango: Chapter 28, Tried for your love

A few months had flown by and Ming’s pregnant continues to grow. Ming’s worse fears were confirmed when she learned her due date, her child with Matius was conceived after their trip to Sunlit Tides. Ming spent many hours on the phone with Adam but didn’t dare to tell him about her pregnancy. She knew she wouldn’t be able to hide it much longer but she was waiting for the right time to tell him.

One day the doorbell rang, Ming who is 6 months pregnant waddles over to the door to answer. Without peeking out the window, Ming flung the door open to her surprise it was Adam. Adam stood there with a smile across as he gazes at Ming’s face of shock. “Hello beautiful.” Smiled Adam. Ming leaped into Adam’s arms, “I didn’t know you were coming!” Adam holds Ming tightly, “I wanted to surprise you.” Ming invites Adam into the mansion.

Adam takes a quick look his surroundings and zeros on Ming’s growing belly. “I guess that’s a result of your “pretend” marriage with Matius back in Sunlit Tides?” Asked Adam as he points at Ming’s belly. Ming just realized that she haven’t told Adam about her pregnancy yet and started to panicked a little. “..Uh..yes.. This was the result..” Lied Ming nervously. Adam grew quiet and just smiles at Ming. “This doesn’t change anything… Does it?” Asked Ming as she lowers her head down. Adam takes a step towards Ming and places her palm against Ming’s warm cheek, “Of course not, I love you Ming. This happen before I came into the picture.” Ming nervously smiles and nobs her head. “How long are you in town for?” Asked Ming. Adam wraps his arms around Ming, “I’m staying.” A smile grew across Ming’s face and she hugs Adam.

 

 

Ming and Adam embraced each other until Matius enter the room. “Hey Matius, You remember Adam right?” Asked Ming. Matius rolled his eyes at Adam, “Yeah. I remember him.” Adam said nothing as he could tell that Matius wasn’t happy to see him there with Ming. “Do you mind that he stay here until his place is ready?” Asked Ming. Matius scoffs, “I guess so.” Ming could tell by Matius’ tone that he wasn’t pleased about Adam’s presence at the mansion.

 

 

Matius walks away from Ming and Adam but stays in the room with them. Matius watches Ming and Adam chat and kiss from a distance. Matius’ heart filled up with hurt as he watches his love with Adam. Matius couldn’t say anything but watch them together. Adam had went to grab his bags and Ming notices Matius lurking in the back of the room.

“Are you okay?”

“Sure, I enjoy watching the woman that I love and who is carrying my child love on another man…”

“I’m sorry Matius but we talked about this for the past few months… I don’t have the same feelings for you like I use to..”

“I just wish you gave it a try.. I tried for your love..”

“Sorry… I’m really am… I just hope one day that you’ll find the right woman for you..”

“I had… I found her..”

“Matius… it’s not me.. I’m sorry.”

“But.. I love you..”

“I know. I love Adam now…”

Adam enters back into the mansion with all his bags in hand, “So where do I put my stuff at?” Ming steps away from Matius and heads towards Adam. “Follow me.” Said Ming as she lead Adam upstairs to her bedroom. Matius remains quiet and later heads to Montigo Palms.

 

 

Matius spent the night drinking away at Montigo Palms along with a lady seem to fancy him a little. Matius engaged a small conversation with her before bring her home with him. Once they enter his bedroom, the clothes went off before Matius even knew this lady’s name. A broken heart Matius didn’t care at this point, he didn’t care what her name was. Matius was on a mission to forget about Ming by filling his stomach with mixed drinks and killing off time with random sex like he did before meeting Ming. As for the mystery girl, she didn’t seem to care with her drunken state. All she knew Matius is a Montigo and very attractive.

After Matius beds her, they stumble over to his bed and slept the night away.  Matius is trying to forget about Ming, it’s clear that he really isn’t as the female wears her hair just as Ming once did when they first met. Matius carefully selected this female to be his mate for the night but he wouldn’t admit that. Her dark braided hair and piercing blue eyes reminded him a lot of Ming with her braided light brown hair and piercing green eyes.

 

 

Ming spent her first night with Adam in her bedroom. Adam had stripped Ming down for this is his first time with Ming. Adam told Ming how much he wanted to enjoy her before having her. However it wasn’t long before they were both stripped down on top of Ming’s soft bed. Adam took his time kissing and caressing Ming.  He found it hard to avoid Ming’s pregnant belly as he caresses her. Ming doesn’t know how could Adam still want to be with her when she’s carrying her ex husband’s baby. Adam gave up on avoiding Ming’s belly and proceeded to kiss it. Ming smiles as she blushes red when Adam kisses her tummy. “I don’t care if this baby isn’t mines.. I would still love this child as they were my own.” Smiled Adam. This comment filled Ming’s heart of more love towards Adam as she embraces him with a sensual kiss. The 2 made love until they both grew tired.

 

 

The next morning after sending the teens off to school Ming came across the female who Matius had brought home the night before. “Good morning.” Greeted Ming. The female smiles and greeted her good morning before exiting and heading home. Ming wonder who could this woman be as she left in a hurry. Ming doesn’t understand how could Matius declare his love for her and then have another female spend the night with him. Ming tried to struggle off the thought but found herself confused and curious.

 

 

“Who was the girl that I saw leaving?”

“Why do you care?”

“I’m just curious..”

“Just mind your business. If I wanna bring home a random girl to fuck, that’s my business.”

“Random girl? Did you even know her?”

“Nah.. Didn’t bother to catch her name.. But I don’t give a fuck now.”

“You didn’t know her name? Are you having a relapse?”

“Relapse? No! My sex addiction was cured! Just cause I fucked one girl doesn’t mean I had a relapse!”

“I’m sorry.. I’m just looking at out for you.”

“I don’t need a babysitter! Your only concern with me is that baby. We haven’t picked a name yet.”

“I’m sorry Matius.. I guess you’re right.. The doctor said the baby is a girl.”

“You can name her whatever.. I don’t care.”

“Matius, you should care.. I want you to have some input.”

“I named Rio, you can have this one.. I don’t care. I don’t care if Adam names her.. I just don’t care!”

“Matius! Stop! Just cause things didn’t work out for you and I doesn’t mean you can run around careless and  self destructive.”

“If you wanna know about that girl so bad.. I’ve slept with her and I hope I got her pregnant so she’ll marry me like you did and I can forget about you!”

“That’s not a smart thing to do.. You want to give her a baby so she’ll marry you? If she decided not to marry or worse.. Have a abortion or give the baby up.. Then what? At least get to know this girl… She seems nice.”

Matius became quiet and thought about what Ming had said. There’s no guaranteed he would have the same results with the new girl like he did with Ming if she fell pregnant with his child. Deep down inside Matius knew Ming was right.

“You’re right.. That wasn’t very smart of me… I’m just hurt.. I don’t like seeing you with Adam.”

“Do you want him to stay somewhere else?”

“No.. He can stay.. If having him here makes you happy… Then I’m happy for you..”

“Thank you Matius.. You should try to get to know the girl.. Give it a try.. Try for her love..”

“I think I will.. but what are we naming our baby?”

“I was thinking Madison.”

“Hmm… Madison Montigo… I like the sound of that.. Our baby has a name.”

 

 

A week had passed and Matius along with Azalea went to his old business school to sign Rio up for pre college classes. After he finish enrolling Rio in Matius spotted Jade in the classroom. It’s been months since he last seen Jade with them being divorced over 6 months ago. Jade hasn’t bother to see her own daughter since she left the house. Azalea’s first birthday is a week away and no word from Jade.

“Hi Jade.”

“Hi.”

“How have you been?”

“Why do you care?”

“I’m just curious of what haven’t you bother to see your daughter.. Her birthday is next week.”

“Unless you plan to take me back.. I could careless about that brat.”

“How can you say that? She’s your daughter.”

“I only had her so I could marry you. I was hoping she was yours but you can keep her.”

“You want me to keep her?”

“Yeah.. I don’t want her unless I have you.”

“I can’t believe this.. You don’t want her unless you can have me?”

“That’s correct.”

“You’re twisted in the head.. I’m glad our marriage is over..”

“I’m sorry you feel that way.. I sent papers out.. We are signing our rights over. You can adopt her.. Now get that abomination away from me.”

Matius was stunned and left speechless by Jade’s cold words regarding her own child. Azalea began to cry and Matius tries to comfort her. Jade scoffs, “That thing is your problem now.” Jade exits the room leaving Matius alone with a crying baby. Matius felt Jade’s words could of possibly hurt Azalea but she’s way too young to understand.

 

 

Under the night sky across town, Rio meets with a new girl who he saw at his school. Rio found himself intrigued by this new face. While he was about the leave the arcade room he happen to spot the mysterious new girl waiting outside for something. “You’re the new girl that I saw at school. My name is Rio Montigo.” Smiled Rio as he extends his hand out to the new girl. “That would be me.. My name is Janiya Erva. It’s nice to meet you Rio.” Smiled Janiya.

Montigo Tango: Chapter 27, Nothing at all

After a long flight from Sunlit Tides to Lucky Palms, Matius, Ming and Rio returned home. Ming and Rio went to go unpack while Matius was stopped by Jade. “How was your trip?” Asked Jade with a smile while she holds Azalea in her arms. Matius sighs and doesn’t answers Jade right away. Jade was confused why Matius was acting strangely towards her. Jade moves closer to him and reaches out but Matius pushes her hand a way. “What happen to your hair?” Asked Matius as he gives Jade a odd look. Jade rolls her eyes, “Nyx and her pranks. That girl gave me nothing but trouble since you were gone. She’s been asked to leave city since she flooded the school and they think she had something to do with the mayor’s wife being sent to the ER. She almost died.” Matius brow raised, “I left you alone for a few days with the kids and one is being asked to leave the city? How on earth did you allow all of this to happen? Where were you when all of this happen? Out with another guy paying for your services?” Jade was stunned by Matius’ last question, “What do you mean a guy paying for your services?”

 

 

“Don’t play dumb Jade, you know what I’m talking about!”

“Seriously, Matius! I don’t know about you’re talking about!”

“I know the rumors about you being a hooker is true!”

“You know people say shit about me all the time. It’s rubbish!”

“Ming saw you with your client..”

“You’re seriously believing your jealous ex wife over me?”

“Yes I am believing her over you. You’re a lying cunt!”

“Matius! Why would you say that about me? You love me!”

“I don’t love you… I never loved you. Your little witch spell tricked me into loving you. You really think your spell would last?”

“My witch spell?”

“Stop playing stupid, Jade! I know about everything about you! Your spell, your hooking and I know Azalea is not mines.”

“That’s not true! Azalea is your daughter!”

“Seriously Jade? Look at her.. She looks nothing like me.”

“She favors me more now. Azalea is your child!”

“She favors you and her real father. I had a DNA test done when she was born. She’s not mines and her DNA matched Donovan Steel’s.”

 

 

Jade became quiet not being able to say anything else with Matius telling her about the DNA test. The silence was cut short when Nina ran into the house in tears. “Niro! Niro is gone! He was never at his friend’s house! Jade you said he was staying with a friend!” Cried Nina. Matius grew even more mad once hearing that his only nephew went missing under Jade’s care. “I’ll handle this, Nina. I need to speak to Jade alone.” Said Matius calmly. Nina nods and runs to her room still in tears.

“Where is Niro?”

“I…I..I.. don’t know.. He said-“

“Stop lying to me! WHERE THE FUCK IS NIRO?!”

“I don’t know! I just don’t know! He went missing!”

“What! Missing? Have you reported it?!”

“No.. I got scared.. I didn’t know what to do.. I’m trying to deal with Nyx!”

“A 10 year old child goes missing and you don’t report it?!”

“I figure he was pulling a prank like Nyx.”

“I can’t believe you!”

Matius pulls his cell out of his pocket and calls 911. He reports Niro had gone missing a few days ago. After Matius gets off the phone with 911 and coldly stares Jade down. “You disgust me.”

 

 

Jade sets Azalea down and tries to touch Matius’ shoulder but he quickly jerks away. “Get away from me.” Growled Matius. Jade makes another attempt to comfort Matius. “I’m sorry Matty.. Is there anything that I can do?” Asked Jade. “Yes there is something that you can do… You can get the fuck out of my house and my life. I never want to see your face again.” Said Matius with coldness in his tone. Jade breaks down in tears, “What? You don’t mean that! Tell me that you don’t mean that.. I love you.. You love me..” Matius turns his back towards Jade. Jade drops to the ground in tears and sobs but Matius ignores her and doesn’t give in. “I hate you, Jade. I never felt that way about anyone in my life. I wished that I never met you.” Said Matius with his back still facing Jade. Jade began to sobs more and grabs onto Matius’ leg as he tries to walk away.

“Let go of me!” Shouted Matius. Jade grabs a hold of his leg tighter, “Matius please! I am sorry.. I am sorry about everything! Please… I beg of you.. I can fix this!” Matius kicks his leg away from Jade. “Get out.” Said Matius with a stern tone. “But.. where do I go? I have nothing to fall back on. You’re really kicking me and Azalea out?” Cried Jade. Matius picks up little Azalea, “No, just you. You’re not fit to raise this child and I can assure that the court with agree with me. Until you can get your shit together, Azalea can go back to you. ” Jade wipes her eyes, “I guess that’s fair.. but you’ll regret this…”

 

 

Jade lifts herself from the floor, she heads into the bedroom and packs her belongings. Without kissing Azalea good bye, Jade loads her bag into Donovan’s car. “I knew it was a matter of time before you’ll be running to me.” Said Donovan with a smirk. Jade tries to wipe away the dried up tears from her eyes, “He’s keeping our daughter until “I get my shit together”.” Donovan shuts the trunk of his car down, “Let him keep her, she’ll just be in the way. You know that I don’t kids, besides he always wanted a daughter and now he got one. She’s better off here.. You had no problem leaving your son with the last guy.” Jade smiles at Donovan and kisses him, “You’re right, she’ll be in the way.. Matius can keep her for all I care.. I only got pregnant so I could have him.. Azalea is worthless to me now.” Jade and Donovan loaded into the car and drove off.

 

 

Before Matius headed out to the police station to speak to the police about his missing nephew, he was stunned by Azalea. “Dada! Dada!” Said Azalea as she reaches her little arms up towards Matius. Matius knew he wasn’t his daughter and wasn’t sure what to say. He picks up Azalea and she hugs him, “Dada!” Matius kisses her on her forehead before handing her over to the butler. “You know you’ll be the only father that she’ll ever know.” Smiled Maranda as she takes Azalea from Matius. Matius said nothing but smiles slightly before dashing out the door.

 

 

Matius returns home and sits at his bar. He tries to collect his thoughts about Jade, Ming, Nyx being kicked out the city and his missing nephew. Matius is feeling defeated and doesn’t know what to do now. “What do I do now… I wish Malix was still alive..” Said Matius to himself quietly. Matius looks down to see that he’s still wearing his wedding band. Matius quickly removes it and throws it across the room. “Why didn’t I listen to Malix and Ming.. How could I be so blind… How did Jade cast a spell on me? How am I going to find Niro? What am I’m going to do with Nyx? This shit is too much..” Said Matius to himself. “Matius? Are you okay?” Asked Ming from behind.

 

 

Matius turns around to find Ming standing behind him. “No.. Niro is missing, Nyx is booted from the city and I’m divorcing Jade.. I just kicked her out.” Said Matius. Ming steps closer to Matius and places her hand on Matius’ shoulder, “Oh my.. What are you going to do about Nyx?” Matius shrugs his shoulder and gets up from the bar. “I just don’t know what do to anymore, Ming.  I wished that I listened to you and Malix about Jade. I should of never left her in the care of the kids.. What am I going to do?” Said Matius as he steps closer to Ming. Ming smiles and hugs Matius, “We will figure this out. You still have me.” Matius moves closer towards Ming and backs her into a wall, he cups Ming’s face with his hands.

“I’m sorry Ming… Why did I let you go..”

“It’s okay now..”

“No it’s not.. I can’t sit here and let you go again..”

“What do you mean?”

“Adam.”

“Oh… but Matius-“

“Hear me out.. I’m still in love with you. It’s real, not no spell like Jade cast on me. This love is real.”

“I’m sorry Matius but I don’t feel the same way about you anymore… I have Adam now..”

“But without you Ming…. I have nothing at all. I just can’t let you go to Adam..”

“But Matius.. I can’t-“

“Shh Ming… Just kiss me.. just kiss me…”

“Matius…”

“Let me love you… Let me still love you..”

Matius pulls Ming into his embrace and he places his lips on Ming’s. Matius  kisses Ming with great passion but Ming doesn’t try to fight away from him as guilt runs through her head. Once again Ming find herself unable to break away Matius’ embrace. She starts to think maybe she still have some lingering feelings for Matius. Matius takes their sweet embrace one step closer.

 

 

Matius kisses Ming her neck as she allows him to continue on. “Let me have you once more..” Whispered Matius into Ming’s ear. Matius pulls Ming away from the wall and runs his palms up and down Ming’s back, pulling her closer to his body. Soon Ming finds Matius undress her before undressing himself. Matius slowly sits on the ground while he pulls Ming down with him.  “Right here?” Asked Ming. Matius smiles at her, “Just sit on my lap” Ming looked down to see Matius’ exposed erection. Still having thoughts of guilt racing through her mind, Ming still couldn’t break away from Matius’ hold. “Ming..” Said Matius as he grabs Ming’s hand and slowly pulls her down onto his lap. Matius embraces Ming in his arms as he gently kisses on her neck. “I’m never going to let you go.” Whispered Matius into Ming’s ear.

 

 

As Matius and Ming made love on the floor, they were unaware that they were being watched by their son. Rio’s eyes grew wide as he watched his parents. “Um.. Mom…. Dad?” Said Rio nervously. Matius and Ming quickly turned their heads to find Rio standing there with a awkward look on his face. “Oh my gosh, Rio!” Shouted Ming as she quickly tries to cover herself. Rio’s cheeks flushed red as he quickly turns his back towards his parents. “Oh hey.. Rio.. What’s up?” Matius nervously chuckled. Rio remained silence for a few moments. “I just wanted to tell you that the police are waiting downstairs to take more info on Niro.” Said Rio. Matius and Ming quickly dressed themselves and met with the police downstairs.

 

 

The first night of Jade being away was hard for little 7 month old Azalea but Ming was there to comfort her. “It’s gonna be okay little Zalea, Matius and I are still here. Azalea quickly taken a liking towards Ming as she holds her. Ming smiles as she holds Azalea in her arms. “You know.. I wouldn’t mind having another one of you little ones. I know I said I only wanted Rio but I think I’m changing my mind. I know Adam…” Said Ming before pausing. “Adam…” Sighed Ming as she thinks about what her and Matius just did hours before.

 

 

Ming’s phone suddenly rings, she looks at her phone to see it’s Adam calling her. Ming still feeling guilty doesn’t know if she should answer his call or not.

“Hello, Adam.”

“Hey babe, how are you?”

“I’m good and you?”

“Good but I would be great if I was there with you. I miss you Ming.”

“I miss you too..”

“I put out a transfer so I should be moving to Lucky Palms in a few months.”

“That’s great.. I can’t wait to see you again.”

“Me too, hun but I have to go now. I’m on break. I love you, Ming.”

“I love you too.”

Ming hangs up and sighs, “Zalea, I feel bad… I did a bad thing with your step father… If Adam knew what just happen… he would have nothing to do with me..” Said Ming to Azalea.

 

 

In the morning Matius made a call to his cousin Ramiro to see if he would still take in Nyx.

“Hey Miro, I was wondering would you still take in Nyx.. She got into some trouble.”

“Sure, but what happen?”

“She flooded the school and almost killed the mayor’s wife…”

“Oh wow… “

“Are you going to change your mind?”

“No, a promise is a promise. I would be glad to take in Nyx but only if I can send her something first.”

“Where?”

“There’s a horse riding school called Bloomsville’s Equesterian Centre in Appaloosa Plains. I think that place would be good for Nyx, sounds like she has some anger problems.”

“That sounds like a good idea.. How much in enrollment?”

“Don’t worry, I’ll cover it.. That’s what family is for.”

“Thanks Ramiro, you’re a saint.”

“Anytime, cousin.”

After hanging up with Ramiro, Matius sat Nyx down and told her about sending her to the riding school and then to Sunset Valley to live with Ramiro in a few months. Nyx didn’t put up a fight and remained silent. Matius felt that was too easy.

 

 

A few weeks had gone by and Ming finds herself not feeling so well. Ming figure it was just food poison but the sickness continue on for a few more weeks. Ming had discovered that her cycle is awfully late. Ming starts to fear that she’s pregnant.

 

 

As for Matius, he return to Montigo Palms working behind the bar. He soon had his marriage with Jade annulled and wanted to pretend that their marriage didn’t happen. The news didn’t sit well with Jade as she tries to plead with Matius to take her back. Matius ignores her and carries on with his life. Ming and Matius haven’t really talked since they last made love, Ming tries her best to avoid Matius while he remains busy at the club.

 

 

The teens all relax in the hot tub and Nyx announces Matius’ plans for her.  “My first stop is to Bloomsville’s Equesterian Centre in Appaloosa Plains.. Some riding school. He said it will be good for me.. I needed to work out my issues before I go to my new home.. I guess.” Said Nyx. This news didn’t sit well with Nina. “You’re leaving? You can’t… I’ll be lonely.. Mom and Dad are dead.. Niro is missing..” Cried Nina. Nyx tries to comfort her twin, “Don’t be silly, you still have uncle, Ming, Rio and Lei. Remember them?” Nina nods her head, “You know what I mean…” Nyx smiles a little, “Uncle, Lei and Rio is still family… even Ming.” Nina smiles, “You’re right.. I’m just gonna miss you.”

 

 

Ming enjoins Matius as he finishes his breakfast.

“Where you been this morning?”

“At the doctor…”

“It’s everything okay?”

“Yes.. I’m pregnant.”

“What? Pregnant? Is the baby mines?”

“Yes.. Adam and I haven’t slept together yet..”

“Well this is a sign.”

“What do you mean?”

“We should be together.. for our baby.”

“Matius… you know I can’t.. I’m with Adam now.”

“You weren’t with him when you were with me a few weeks ago.. when we made this baby..”

“I’m pretty sure I got pregnant in Sunlit Tides… I’ll find out once they know the due date for sure.. But this.. It have to stop Matius. I want to be with Adam.. It’s not gonna work between us.”

“We can at least try..”

“Remember when I wanted to try?”

“Yes but I was under that spell..”

“I know but you were right the first time.. It won’t work.. I’m sorry Matius.”

 

 

3 months had went by and Ming was starting to show. Ming could no longer hide her pregnancy from the kids. “You got a bun in the oven I see.” Smiled Nyx as she rubs Ming’s tummy. Ming smiles at Nyx, “Yes.. I’m pregnant. It’s your uncle’s.” Nyx chuckles a little, “I figure that.. Rio told us what he saw. Get a room! Wanna know the gender?” Ming was curious about the gender but didn’t think she could find out this early. “Sure.” Replied Ming. Nyx rubs Ming’s tummy once more, “It’s a girl.” A smile grew across Ming’s face, “A little girl? How do you know?” Nyx smiles at Ming, “It’s a vampire thing.”

 

 

Time has came for Nyx to head to Bloomsville Equesterian Centre before making her journey to Sunset Valley. Nyx told her family good bye before entering the cab. Nina took Nyx’s exit the hardest. “I’m sorry it has to be this way.. You can visit her once she settles in  Sunset Valley with Ramiro.” Said Matius as he tries to comfort his depressed niece.

 

 

*****

3 Months earlier…

It was a warm night in the cemetery in Lucky Palms. The winds were calm and the night stood still. The dirt on the ground started to crumble as a hand unearths from the ground. As the moonlight glazes over the quiet cemetery another hand unearths before a head emerges from the ground. There’s been rumors of a zombie apocalypse but this is anything but. Soon a whole body arises from the warm ground. The figure grunts and coughs up dirt as it crawls near the headstone. Who is the figure? Someone that would recognize.

 

 

After being laid to rest for 8 years, Malix emerges from his grave. Malix sits up and brushes the dirt from his nude body as he coughs up more dirt. Malix looks up into the star full sky in amazement. He takes a glance at his glowing skin as his red eyes now glow in the night. “Where am I? …Who am I? … Why am I so thirty?” Said Malix in confusion. Malix has no memory of his previous life and sat alone  near his grave. “Finally.. You’re awake Malix.” Said a voice coming from behind Malix. Malix quickly turns around. “Is that my name?” Asked Malix. “Yes, your name is Malix Montigo.. Please come with me..” Said the dark figure lurking in the shadows. “Why do I feel so thirsty? What’s going on?” Asked Malix as he stood up. “It’s cause you’re back in your true form.” Said the dark figure. “My true form?” Asked Malix curiously. “Yes Malix… Your true form.. Vampire, a Quasizen Vampire.. not a average vampire but I’ll shall explain later.. Come with me, Malix.. You’ll catch your death out here.” Said the dark figure. Without any hesitation Malix follows his mysterious visitor.

Montigo Tango: Chapter 26, Nyx the terror

As Lei and Vandeen went to go play pool, Nyx sat at the bar while Nina ate her dinner. “Hey bartender! I’m ready to order a drink.” Shouted Nyx. The bartender is very aware that Nyx is well underage and raises his brow, “I guess you’ll be wanting some juice?” Nyx lets out a loud laugh, “Yeah with some vodka in it!” The bartender leans over the bar, “Nyx I know you’re only 14. I cannot serve you any alcohol.” Nyx leans in closer to the bartender and give him a devilish smile while exposing her fangs, “You know.. You do look kinda tasty. I haven’t had my fill for human blood yet and I’m feeling kinda tempted.. I’m sure others will find it pleasing if they catch you letting a minor feeding off of you. You know what happens after vampires feed.. Remember.. I’m only 14.” The bartender jerks back from bar quickly, “Okay you win Nyx. What would you like to have?” Nyx perks up and smiles, “A appletini, please.” The bartender serves Nyx her drink and she happily accepts it. “Good job on the drink. It tasted juicy. I’ll be leaving you a 20 dollar tip.” Said Nyx after rising from her seat but a few minutes later she returns ordering several more drinks.

 

 

While drinking Jade walks in and catches Nyx in the act.

“What do you think you’re doing? You’re underage!”

“Go away Jade!”

” I will do no such thing! I’ve had it with you! You are grounded!”

“Fuck off Jade! Just because you tricked my uncle into marrying you doesn’t give you no right to tell me what to do!”

“Matius left me in charge with you guys! So yes I do get to tell you what to do and you will listen!”

“Okay if you were in charge then why are you here and not at home with Niro and the baby?

“My sister has the baby and Niro…. Niro is staying at a friend’s house for a few days. Grab your stuff cause we are leaving!”

“I’m not going anywhere with you!”

“Yes you will! You are going to be in so much trouble when Matius gets home cause I’m telling him everything.”

“Oh I’ll be in trouble? I doubt that. You’ll be in trouble with him. Your weak Adjests that you placed on him.. I broke it. Matius isn’t answering any of your calls and texts isn’t he?”

“Wha.. How? How did you know? That’s not possible.. You can’t break it! You’re just a weak baby vamp!”

“He’s not yours anymore.”

Nyx causally walks away from Jade leaving her stunned. Jade couldn’t believe what she just heard. “How did she know? How could she break it? Matius hasn’t spoke to me since he left… He didn’t tell me bye.” Jade sat down at the bar trying to figure what she should do next. If it was true then Jade is in a lot of trouble.

 

 

Nyx joins the others as the played pool. “Jade looked mad when she came in.” Said Lei. Nyx rolled her eyes and scoffs, “Who cares about her. Can I join?” Vandeen felt a nervous when Nyx joined them at the pool table. Vandeen as a cousin who is a vampire and didn’t think Nyx wouldn’t be so bad. Vandeen notices something different about Nyx compared to his cousin. Nyx seems to be sinister vibe around unlike his cousin Zarita. His cousin is harmless compared to Nyx. He felt Nyx could possibly hurt someone. Vandeen is a little scared of Nyx but wouldn’t admit it. Nyx catches Vandeen staring at her. “Hey Van, take a pic! It will last longer.” Laughed Nyx. Vandeen’s cheeks turned red, “I’m..sorry. I didn’t mea-” Nyx cuts Vandeen off, “Aww do you like me?” Nyx teased. Vandeen found himself stumbling on his words which made Nyx giggle. “Relax Van.. You’re a pretty cool dude. We can be friends. Now let’s play some pool. Me and Nina verses you 2?” Said Nyx with a gentle smile. Vandeen smiled and felt a bit more relax when Nyx told him that they can be friends. “I guess she isn’t so scary after all.” Vandeen thought to himself.

The teens paired off into 2 teams as they played a couple of games. They were all having fun as Jade watches them from away far. Jade could see the teens weren’t doing anything that they shouldn’t be doing. Jade knew one of the rules were that the teens weren’t allow to go to Montigo Palms without a adult. “He’s trusted me with them.. He’s gonna be pissed.” Jade thought to herself. Jade knew that’s the less of her worries since Nyx admitted to breaking her spell on Matius and Ming.

After Vandeen making 4 shots in a roll he started to feel more relaxed and was enjoying his visit. Nina watched in amazement and Vandeen had caught Nina eyeing him a few times. “You’re pretty good at this, Van. I wish I was on your team.” Smiled Nina. A smug smile grew across Vandeen’s face as he enjoyed the pink haired beauty admiring him, “Thanks Nina, you’re not bad yourself.” Nina’s cheek glowed red and she shyly turns her face away from Vandeen. Lei leans in close to Vandeen and whispers into his ear, “I think Nina likes you.” Vandeen couldn’t help but smile even more. “Don’t get cocky now.” Teased Lei as she pokes Vandeen with her pool stick. Vandeen chuckles a bit.

 

 

As they finish their game, they were unaware about the lurker near the window. Amos took a risk into crossing the city limits. Cira talked about Nyx, Nina and Niro a lot with him. Learning about his younger siblings made him even more curious about them. “Nyx has hair like yours and Nina and Niro have my hair.” Amos remembering what Cira had told him. Knowing those were uncommon hair colors they would be easy to find. Amos soon picked up the scent of his sisters which lead him to Montigo Palms. Amos stood in the window and watched his sisters played pool. “My sisters..” Whispered Amos as he placed his palm on the window. Amos could hear the girls giggle which brings a smile to his face. “I’m going to bring Cira back to you.. my sisters.. I promised..” Whispered Amos. “Amos?” Said a voice from behind.

 

 

“What are you doing out here? It’s dangerous for you. You know the police have wooden bullets.”

“I know… but I wanted to see my sisters..”

“I see, does Malachi know that you’re here?”

“He does not and you will keep quiet about this.”

“I’ll only be quiet if you.. You know.. Sleep with me. You never want to touch me unless Malachi commands you. I told you that I like you best.”

“I thought you loved that Matius guy..”

“I do but I like you too. I’m the only other woman you’ll been with. Why aren’t we bonded?”

“You’re wrong.”

“Please don’t tell me that you fucked the one who gave you birth!”

“No! When you were pregnant, I stayed in Moonlight Falls and fed off of the blood of true fae. I had my fill of fun too.”

Jade slaps Amos.

“How could you! I was suppose to be the only woman! Malachi promised.”

“He promise what?”

“That I could have you once Matius grows old.”

Amos pushes Jade away.

“You will never have me!”

“We going to be bonded. Malachi promise me.”

“That will never happen. I would kill you first.”

“Then Malachi will kill you..”

“I rather be dead than married to you, Jade. You’re a nasty woman. You claim to love this human man but you willing want to sleep with 2 vampires who are blood related.”

“I can only love Matius for so long. He’s going to get old. When that happens, I’ll finally get to marry you.”

“What do you mean finally?”

“Malachi promised me you if I destroyed the Montigo family. At first I went to Malachi so I could have Matius but when I saw you.. I wanted you more. I love you more than Matius. But for now, I’m bonded to Matius. Promise that you won’t get jealous. You’ll have to wait until Matius gets old.”

“You’re sick! You and Malachi are both sick! At my sisters! How could you take their mother away from them? I thought the plan was to just turn Malix back to vampire?”

“Honey, Malix is dead. Malachi’s plan was to take Cira so Malix would come to him. But something went wrong.. Malix killed himself.”

“What? Malix is dead? Why have no one told me?”

“Cause you will just tell Cira and she’ll snapped of Malachi’s hold. He can only glamour her a few times before frying her brain.”

“If Malix is gone then let her go!”

“He can’t.. Malachi is in love.”

 

 

It was near closing time and Nyx and Nina stepped outside. They we hear Jade fighting with someone. The curious twins sneaked and hid behind some rose bushes trying to get a good look at Jade and the guy whom she was fighting with. “Who is that?” Asked Nina as she stands behind Nyx. “I dunno but he was glowing blue eyes.” Said Nyx was she peek from the bushes. Nina gasps,” Glowing eyes? Is he a vampire too?” Nyx sniffs the air, “Yep, he’s vampire. Is another vampire here? And Jade knows him?” Said Nyx. Nina grabs on Nyx’s shoulders, “How can a vampire be here? Maybe he’s from the outskirts.” Nyx nods, “Possibly…but what does he want with Jade? Looks like he don’t like her.” Nina tries to get a better look at Amos, “Is it me or does that guy looks like daddy? Maybe we have a secret brother! He looks like daddy.” Nyx turns her head to Nina, “That’s crazy and impossible! If that was true then our parents would had to be teens when he was born. He looks like he’s in his early twenties.”

 

 

Amos notices the girls are spying on him and Jade. “We’ll finish this later Jade. I have to go. We’re being watched.” Said Amos. He was then gone before Jade could even get a word in. Jade looks around to see who could be possibly be watching them but Nyx and Nina quickly ducks down. Jade sighs and walks away from the area. “Whew, that was close.” Mumble Nina.

 

 

As the night ended, Lei and Vandeen said their good byes to each other. “Keep in touch?” Smiled Lei. “Of course.” Said Vandeen. Lei written down her number and email address before giving it to Vandeen. “I’ll make sure to keep on to this. Thanks for showing me a great time here Lei. I had a lot of fun hanging out with you and your nieces.” Said Vandeen as he hugs Lei goodbye. “I’m glad that you had a good time. Maybe I’ll visit Sunset Valley soon.” Lei winked.

The next day

***

Nyx received a letter from the city after she, Lei and Nina had sent a letter asking to allow Nyx to stay since Lucky Palms has always been her home. In the letter read if she didn’t leave when time come they will take legal action. City hall had no interest in how Nyx felt about her stay in Lucky Palms nor any thoughts from family or peers. “Laws are laws they said. They don’t care.. They want me out, Nina.” Nyx growled. “I’m sorry, I’ll go with you.”  Said Nina as she tries to comfort her twin. “Nina, I’m not dragging you down with me. You stay, it’s your home.” Said Nyx. Nina hugs Nyx, “It’s your home too.” Nyx sighs, “They don’t see it that way..” Nyx looks up into sky trying to fight back any tears that threaten to flood from her eyes. Nina remained quiet as she gave Nyx her space. Nyx sighs again and turns back to her twin. “What are you going to do now?” Nina asked. Nyx balls up her fist, “I’ll leave… but not without a fight first.” Nyx spins around and took off running. “Wait!” Shouts Nina as she ran after Nyx.

 

 

Nyx races over the mayor’s house and pulls out a carton of eggs from her bag. Nina finally catches up with Nyx. “What… are.. you.. about to… do?” Said Nina as she tries to catch her breath. “They fear terror… I’ll show them terror!” Said Nyx as she throws the first egg at the mayor’s house. After throwing half a dozen of eggs, the mayor’s wife cam running outside. “What are you doing?” Yelled the mayor’s wife. “You want terror, I’ve give your terror! I’ll give you a reason to kick me out!” Shouted Nyx as she throws at egg at the mayor’s wife. “You must be the vampire kid. These are the laws! You will have to leave when you are of age! I can’t believe you were allowed in this city! Just cause you Montigos are rich, doesn’t give you the right to bring in a vampire child!” Shouted the mayor’s wife. ” I was born this way! My daddy has vampire genes that passed down to me! They didn’t nothing wrong!” Shouted Nyx. The mayor’s made Nyx more angry than what she was already. “Your father had a vampire gene? Then maybe it’s good that he’s dead now. Now maybe he won’t pollute this city with more gross vampire kids!” The mayor’s wife snapped back. Nyx lunged towards her and biting down on her neck to drain a large amount of blood. Nyx jumps from mayor’s wife and wipes her mouth. “Fucking bitch.” Growled Nyx.

 

 

The girls watched the mayor’s wife lay helpless on the ground in a pool of her own blood. “Oh my stars Nyx! Is she dead?” Nina gasped. Nyx looked into the mayor’s wife’s almost lifeless eyes, “No.. not yet at least.. Call 911…” Nina quickly dials 911 on her cell, after placing the call she and Nyx fled the scene. “Will she live?” Cried Nina. “Yes, but not without pain.” Mumbled Nyx. Nina was confused by Nyx’s answer, “What do you mean?” Nyx sighs, “I filled her body with venom… She will feel agonizing pain as long as she lives.” Nina’s eyes grew wipe open,”Venom? Like a snake? I didn’t know vampires had venom.” Nyx looks into Nina’s eyes as hers glowed more red than usual, “No they don’t.. But I’m not like other vampires.. I’m different..”

 

 

The twins had returned home after fleeing the mayor’s house before help had arrived. Nina hoped that they weren’t seen at the mayor’s. Nina returns to her room to collect her thought as Nyx does some tampering in Jade’s bathroom. Nyx is still angry at Jade decided to play a prank on Jade but adding some of her venom in Jade’s shampoo. Nyx watches Jade enter in her bathroom. Nyx snickers as Jade showers and washes her hair. “She thinks she’s the boss of me.. She’s about to rethink that..” Said as she lets out a sinister laugh.

 

 

Jade steps out her shower and felt a strong tingling on her scalp. Jade looks into the mirror to see her hair as turned into a bright yellow color. “What the fuck?” Growled Jade as she ran her fingers through her hair. Jade yanks her hands away to find a chunk of her hair weaved around her fingers. Suddenly Jade’s scalp started to burn furiously. Jade jumped into shower and risen out her hair with cold water. As Jade rises her hair large amounts of hair began to come out. “What’s happening to my hair!” Cried Jade as she looks at her hair covered hands in the shower.

 

 

Jade exists the shower to find herself now bald headed. Nyx’s prank went too far and it was powerful than Nyx realized. She only intended Jade to have a crazy color of hair for a while, she didn’t intend for it to fall out. A bald Jade sulks in the living room knowing that Nyx has something to do with her hair falling out. “I need Matius to return.. I can’t deal this girl anymore..”

 

 

Jade’s cell started to ring and Jade checks her phone hoping that it’s Matius calling her back. She was disappointed to learn that it wasn’t Matius but someone from the city. “This is Jade Montigo?” Asked the caller. “Yes, this is her. Is something wrong.” Replied Jade. “Yes, we believe that your niece Nyx was the one who flooded the school and causing damage to other places. We also believe that Nyx may of been the one to send the mayor’s wife to the hospital.” Said the caller. “Do you have solid proof?” Asked Jade. “We have eye witnesses, Mrs. Montigo. As of now Nyx is expelled from school and from this city. You have 30 days to remove Nyx Montigo from the city limits or you and your family faces prison time and a fine. Nyx will be deported to Bridgeport’s  juvenile detention center.” Said the caller before hanging. Jade drops the phone realizing that things are even worse now. She couldn’t manage to look after the kids while Matius and Ming were gone. Jade still haven’t figure out what to tell Matius about Niro’s whereabouts as Malachi hasn’t gotten back with Jade about the issue. Jade panics and paces around the living trying figure out things. “This will be the end of me.. I had Niro kidnapped. Nyx nearly killed the mayor’s wife and now being kicked out the city. If my Adjests really did break.. Matius won’t have anything to do with me.. I gonna come up with another spell before he returns.. I only have a day to find a new spell.”  Jade thought to herself.

 

Montigo Tango: Chapter 25, Curious

Meanwhile in Lucky Palms

Nyx received a letter in the mail from the city.

Dear Nyx Montigo, We have notice that you are indeed a vampire living within the city limits of Lucky Palms. Vampires are illegal within the city limit however we are fully aware that you are still a minor, we will allow you to live in Lucky Palms and attend class. However on your 18th birthday you must leave the city or move to the outskirts. If you refuse to leave Lucky Palms by your 18th birthday, you will face imprisonment and will be deport out once you finish your sentence.

After Nyx read the letter Nyx stormed out of the house with Nina following close behind. Without a word Nyx lead Nina to city hall. “It’s close. Of course..” Growled Nyx. Nina was quite concern about Nyx with her not saying a word after checking her mail. “Nyx, why do you care it city hall is close or not?” Asked Nina with concern in her voice. Nyx lowers her, sighs and hands Nina over the letter that she received. Nina took the letter and sat down on a bench near by to read it. “This.. This isn’t fair. It’s not fair at all!” Said Nina as she crumbles the letter in her small palm. Nyx sits next to Nina, “I lived here my whole life and now I’m being told that I need to leave when I’m 18? Where would I go? I don’t know any other family.. I refuse to live in the outskirts. This is bullshit, Nina.” Growled Nyx. Nina rests her hand on Nyx’s shoulder, ” You can’t leave me Nyx.. I can’t be away from you. When you, I’ll leave with you sis.” Nyx brushes Nina’s hand from her shoulder, “No Nina.. This is your home. You stay. Stay for Niro. I’ll be fine on my way.” Nina grabs a hold of Nyx’s waist and hugs her, “No! I’m coming with you! We can bring Niro with us. Our parents are gone. He only have us.” Nyx smiles and pulls away from Nina, “We can’t.. I can’t. This city is yours and Niro’s home. I won’t take him away from here. I’m not fit to raise Niro, you are but not me. I’m sorry Nina.. You can come visit me where ever I end up.”

 

 

“Why don’t we write a sincere letter to city hall about having you stay?” Said Lei as she approaches the girls. Nyx and Nina looked up to find Lei standing near them. “Yeah, Lei has a good idea. Let’s write a letter to city hall.” Smiled Nina. Nyx shrugs her shoulders, “I guess we could try..” The girls all reached into their book bags and grabbed out their notebooks and began to write their letters. The sun was setting fast and the girl finished their letters and headed to Cherrysicle for ice cream.

 

 

The girls reached Cherrysicle and enter inside. Lei was feeling a bit hungry and decided to deep fry a burrito for dinner. While she deep fried her burrito she couldn’t hope but notice a guy that she never seen before. “This is ice cream is the best that I ever had.” Said the teenage boy. Lei smiles and giggles, “You must be new here.” The boy stops munching on his ice cream cone, “Oh I’m just in town visiting. I saw this place and had to sneak away and check it out.” Lei was curious about why did this boy had to sneak away. “Sneak away?” Asked Lei. The boy takes 2 more licks of his ice cream and smiles, “Class trip. I’m from Sunset Valley.” Lei reaches her hand out to greet him, “Welcome to Lucky Palms. My name is Lei Montigo.” The boy shakes Lei’s hand, “My name is Vandeen Jonso but you can call me Van. Or Van the man.” Lei giggles, “Okay Van the man, it’s nice meeting you.

 

 

Lei excuses herself and checks on her food while Vandeen buys another ice cream cone. After finishing Lei and Vandeen chatted to get to know each other for a bit while Nyx and Nina teased the 2, making kissing noises. “Who are they?” Asked Vandeen. Lei rolls her eyes, “My nieces.” Vandeen’s eyes grew wide, “Your nieces? They look like they are your age.” Lei smiles, “Yeah. My parents had me when they were old.”  Vandeen laughs a little, “My dad was old when I was born.”

“We got something in common. So why did your class come here?”

“To check out some boring old museum. I really wanna check out that casino dance club but I’m too young.”

“Montigo Palms?”

“Yeah! That place. Have you been there before?”

“Yep, I own part of it.”

“What?! You own it?”

“Yes but part of it. Right now my 2 older brothers is running it.. Well one older brother is. One died..”

“Oh.. I’m sorry to hear about your other brother.”

“Would you like to check out Montigo Palms tonight?”

“You can get me in? Aren’t we a little young?”

“Yes but I own it so it’s cool.”

“This is going to be exciting. I guess this trip isn’t going to be so bad after all.”

 

 

Vandeen excuses himself to the restroom and Niro enters the shop. Niro was curious about the guy who just left Lei’s side. Niro has never seen Lei talk guy before. With his sisters still teasing Lei making kissing noises, Niro was even more curious. “What was that?” Asked Niro curiously. Lei pats Niro on his head, “A new friend.” Niro wasn’t convinced by Lei’s answer with his sisters continuing their teasing in the background. “Like a boyfriend?” Asked Niro. Lei quickly blushes and laughs nervously, “No Niro, just a friend. Why do you care?” Niro gazes at Lei with his shiny red eyes, “I’m just looking after you, Lei.” Lei hugs Niro, “You’re sweet but I’ll be fine.”

 

 

Vandeen exits the restroom and was motion by Niro to come here. “Have a seat with me.” Said Niro to Vandeen. Slightly confused Vandeen had a seat with Niro. There was a few moments of silence as Vandeen stares at Niro as he never seen a kid like him. Bubblegum pink hair and candy apple red eyes, Vandeen knew there’s something unique about Niro. Niro finally breaks his silence.

“What are your intentions with my aunt Lei?”

“Excuse me?”

“You’re a guy and Lei is a girl. And I know when boys get older they tend to hurt girls.”

“Oh I get it. Lei is just my friend, little guy. You have nothing to worry about.”

“I hope not. ‘Cause if you hurt Lei or make her cry, I will find you and hurt you. Bad.”

“Okay.. Note taken.”

Lei laughs and motions Niro to go play. “I hope my nephew wasn’t bugging you.” Smiled Lei. Vandeen chuckles, “No he’s fine. Sweet kid. It’s interesting that I got threaten by a pink haired 10 year old.” Lei laughs hard, “Yeah, welcome to Lucky Palms! Home of sassy 10 year old boys.”

 

 

Nyx notices the time on the clock. “Niro it’s getting close for you to get home.” Niro runs over to Nyx and give her a hug, “Okay, make sure that guy doesn’t hurt Lei.” Nyx smiles, “She’s fine Niro, he seems nice. Now get home. Do you need me to walk you home?” Niro scoffs telling her that he’s getting too old for that and will ride his bike home alone. “Be safe.” Said Nyx before Niro runs out the door.

 

 

Later on all of the teens went to Montigo Palms. Dressed up nicely and carefully sneaked away from his class, Vandeen was happy to check out a night club/ casnio for the first time in his life. “You look nice.” Said Lei commenting on his formal attire. “You too.” Winked Vandeen. “What about me?!” Growled Nyx as she steps forwarded towards Vandeen. Vandeen steps back. “You look pretty too.” Vandeen said nervously. Nyx lets out a loud laugh and playfully hits Vandeen, “I’m just messing. Relax homie. I won’t eat ya.. Yet.” Vandeen sheepishly smiles and notices Nina standing quiet in the corner, “You look lovely too Nina.” Nina smiles and told him thanks. “Shall we please some skee ball?” Lei suggested. Everyone agrees to play.

The teens spent a hour playing skee ball and taunting each other except for Nina who remained quiet and watched the others. Nina’s shy personality causes her to not interact with others and often clings to Nyx to socialize with anyone. While Nyx is busying challenging Lei and Vandeen, Nina is ignored. Nina wishes that she could be as open and out going like the others. After watching for a while Nina quietly tip toes away from the group.

 

 

Nina wonders into the night club part of Montigo Palms. It’s a quiet night and not too many people were there yet. Nina steps closer to the DJ booth where her father Malix once played. Nina felt sadness overcome as she remembers this was her father’s job. She remember how he loved to spin music and make others dance. She remembers how out going he was but couldn’t understand why is she the only one who is shy. Nina became curious and stepped in the DJ booth. The new DJ was running late so she had plenty of time to look around her father’s old booth. “Daddy.. I wish that I could be like you.” Nina whispered to herself.

“You’re gonna play tonight?” Said a voice. Nina looks and saw it was a woman. “Aww, you’re Nina Montigo, Malix’s daughter. You grew up. Are you taking Malix’s place?” Asked the woman. Nina was frozen and wasn’t sure what to say. She thought to herself there was no way she could ever play music at a club. “Don’t be shy. Malix was a great DJ. I know you can do it.” Said the woman. Nina nervously search through the record bin and pulled one out. She sets the record down on the turntable and carefully places the needle on the record. The first track plays and Nina searches for another record to mix into. Nina had forgotten that she even being watch. The woman dances as Nina started to DJ. Within minutes, Nina found herself dancing to the beat of music and not caring of what others thought. By then the others venture in and cheered Nina on. Nina smiled as she watched other dance but soon the DJ had came in and Nina exits the booth. “Good job Nina, I think you’ll be a great DJ one day.. Like daddy.” Smiled Nyx.

 

 

“Are you hungry, Van?” Asked Lei as she leads him into the lounge area. “Sure, what do you serve?” Asked Vandeen. “We have shrimp cocktail, Grilled salmon and other fancy stuff.” Lei replied. “Grilled salmon sounds good.” Suggested Vandeen. “Coming up.” Said Lei as she walks to the bar to order the food. Vandeen takes this time to wander around the lounge. He watched the piano lady number a classic number. “This place is sweet.” Vandeen mention to Lei. “Yeah, my father build this place before he and my mother was murdered.” Said Lei. Vandeen frowns a little, “Oh I’m sorry..” Lei smiles, “It’s okay.. I’m healing. Our food is ready, stay here.” Vandeen waits for Lei to bring their food. “I could of gotten it for us.” Smiled Vandeen. “Oh please, you’re my guest. Sounds like you’re a gentleman.” Smiled Lei. “Oh I try to be.” Blushed Vandeen. Lei and Vandeen started to eat on their meal but now Lei finds herself curious about Vandeen’s status.

“So Van, are you single?”

Vandeen knew that his heart belongs to a girl back at home but the idea of possibly dating a rich girl did cross his mind. Lei is indeed very pretty to him but his heart is for someone else.

“No, I have a girl back home. Her name is Valerie, she’s sweet and beautiful I wished that she could of made it out here too.”

“Oh..”

Lei sighed as she was a little disappointed in Vandeen’s answer.

“How about you?”

“I’m single.”

“No way, you’re a very pretty girl and rich too. How is that possible?”

“My life has been crazy. I kinda don’t have time for boys and it’s hard to make friends. Kids try to use me for my money. I just wish I had a simple and humble life. I wished that I lived in a regular house and worked for things instead of having it handed to me.”

“You don’t live in a house?”

“I live in that mansion up the street.”

“Really? That place is huge! You rather live in a little old house?”

“Yeah. I’m tired of people thinking that I’m just some spoiled rich girl who’s snobby. I’m far from that. After school I’m moving to Twinbrook with my friend Monique. We are going to go to school and go from there. I’ll finally have a simple and easy life.”

“Oh I see. I wished that I lived in a fancy mansion like you. I think it would be cool.”

“It’s overrated.”

Vandeen laughs.

“If you say so.”

 

 

Back at home Niro watches Jade head at out of the house. Niro notices that Jade seemed to always leave in a hurry around this time. As curiosity strike Niro, he jumps on his bike and follows Jade. As Niro makes his journey through the  streets he felt the same tingling sensation that he had felt just a few months before. “Mom!” Niro shouted as he petals faster on his bike. Niro was able to receive Cira’s signal once again. “I won’t use you this time!” Shouted Niro as he petals even faster.

Niro finds himself in the outskirts of Lucky Palms. Niro was scared and was more determine  to pinpoint Cira’s whereabouts as the tingling grew stronger. Niro slowly approaches a small house and felt Cira’s energy as he walks closer to the house. Jade heard a noise and hurries out the house and spots young Niro. “What are you doing here, kid?” Asked Jade.   Niro’s face turns angry and he balls his little fist up, “My Mom is in there. You knew this whole time!” Jade scoffs at Niro, “Niro, your mom died.” Niro walks towards Jade and pushes her, No she’s not! You were hiding her here! I can read your thoughts right now! You have my mom!” Jade jumps back, “Shit!” Jade blasts Niro with fireball made out of light and it knocks young Niro out. Niro lays out cold on the warm sandy ground. “Damn it kid! You just had to follow me!” Snapped Jade as she picks up Niro’s limp body.

 

 

“Malachi.. we have a problem.”

“Who is this?”

“Niro.. Cira’s son.. Your grandson..”

“What is he doing here?”

“He followed me.”

“The what happen to him?!”

“I zapped him..”

“What?! You stupid bitch! Why did you do that? You could of just sent him home!”

“He knows! He knows Cira is here! He’s a damn psychic!”

“I’m getting tired of your shit Jade! I can’t keep him! They will know he’s gone missing! A missing child will be all over the news! Plus I have Cira here too! You are so stupid Jade!”

“I’m sorry Malachi! But I didn’t know what to do.. Can you just glamour?”

“He’s too young.”

“Can you try at least?!”

“I’m not risking the life of my grandchild cause of your mistake!”

“What do we do?! Please tell me!”

“Just lock him in Cira’s room until I figure something out..”

 

 

Jade laid Niro down on Cira’s bed in her old cell. With Cira under Malachi’s control, Cira is allow to roam free in the house but doesn’t leave the house. Cira stays in another as Jade and Malachi locks Niro in the cell. “Just fucking great.. I’ll use grip on Cira if she sees Niro.” Growled Malachi as he walks away from the locked room. “Malachi.. I’m-” Said Jade before she’s cut out. “Save it.. I have shit to figure out.” Hissed Malachi.

 

 

Cira sits in the front room and watches some TV as Jade leaves the house. “Hey love, aren’t you ready for bed?” Smiled Malachi as he wraps his around Cira’s neck. “No.” Said Cira as she brushes him away. “C’mon love.. I want to snuggle with you tonight.” Whined Malachi. Cira scoffs at him, “I’m not ready yet..” Malachi bats his eyes and nuzzles Cira’s cheek, “It’s getting close for you to have my baby. Let’s have a little fun now.” Cira sighs, “If it gets you to shut up..” Even under Malachi’s control, he still allows Cira to fight with him on her freewill  for his enjoyment. It gives Malachi a sense that their relationship is real when it’s not. Cira may fight with Malachi a little but she  gives in to his every command when he grows tired of fighting with her. “That’s a good girl, Cira. Shall we enter our bedroom now?”

Montigo Tango: Chapter 24, Wish upon a star

Ming took a few moments admiring her new surroundings, “How did you find this place?”  Adam stuck his hands in his pockets, smiled while flaunting his perfect white teeth, “Oh I have my secrets.”  Ming slip out of her tennis shoes and dig her toes into the cool white sand. Adam moves closer to Ming,”Would you like to watch the stars with me? If you’re lucky you can make a wish on a shooting star. I usually come out here to watch the stars.” Ming nods her head and Adam finds a place for them to sit in the sand. Ming lifts her up and gazes into the starry night skies, “I never seen the stars so bright other than here.” Adam leans in closer to Ming,” That’s the benefits of this place.. no buildings or bright lights. Just a lot of open space.” Ming quickly leans forward and points up, “Look a shooting star!” Adam turns his had at Ming, “Make a wish.” Ming inhales  and closes her eyes tightly “I wish.. to find love again.” Ming exhales and opens her eyes. “What did you wish for?” Asked Adam as he places his hand on top of Ming’s. “If I tell you then it won’t come true.” Ming smiles.

 

 

Ming notices Adam’s hand is placed on hers. “Adam, your hand..” Said Ming. Adam quickly retrieves his hand and apologizes to Ming. “It’s okay.” Ming said with a smile. Adam stands up and reaches his hand out to pull Ming up. Ming accepts his hand and she’s carefully lifted from the floor. Ming notices the fire pit behind them, “Oh cool..  fire pit.” Adam asks Ming would she like to roast some marshmallows and she nods. Adam carefully lights a fire and pulls out a bag of marshmallows from his bag. “Do you always carry marshmallows with you?” Teased Ming. Adam laughs, “Never know when you get to hang out with a beautiful lady.” Adam and Ming sat down and roasted their marshmallows together.

“So Ming, tell me something about you. I heard a lot from Ling but I want to hear something from you.”

“Oh gosh.. What did she say?”

“Nothing bad.”

“Good, now I don’t have to kill her. Well something about me? I barely know who I am anymore..”

“Sure you do.”

“I have a 15 year old son and I spend most of my time making sure that he stays out of trouble. I wasn’t a good mother to him when he was little but I’m making it up to him. I manage a ice cream and I like to shop.”

“I would love to take you shopping some time.”

“Really? That’s nice of you.. But I want to say that I’m not a gold digger.. Well not anymore.. I don’t care about money. Just my son.”

Adam laughs at Ming’s gold digger comment.

“It’s cool. That’s good that you look after your son now. I’m originally from Twinbrook but I’m here due to my job. I don’t miss that place one bit. How is life in Lucky Palms?”

“It’s nice and warm like here. Things use to be good until a girl named Jade Hendrix came into our lives. She seemed nice at first but things changed…Matty and I started to change. I found myself becoming distant from Matty and Rio. With me being distant Jade makes her moves on him. Then one night Matty and I went out for dinner and things were good but I had a nasty headache with ringing in my ears. Then I heard distorted voice and then things went blank. The next day I found Matty in bed with Jade. He said that I wanted a divorce. I had no memory of it. I tried to save our marriage but it was too late. He wanted Jade and married her. Now he claiming how he misses me.. I’m confused.”

 

 

Adam stands up and motions Ming to follow him. Ming follows and he embraces Ming.

“Ming, I know what happen.”

“What? Please tell me..”

“I’ve seen this before.. It’s Adjests.”

“Adjests?”

“A spell cast from a Witch Fae hybrid with a vampire influence.”

“A Witch fairy? Jade is a witch fairy? How do you know?”

“Because this happen to my brother. He was married once and he was encounter by a Witch Fae. She was obsess with him and cast the spell on him. His wife started to became distant. She started to tell him things that she couldn’t remember. He suddenly found himself wanting to be the Witch Fae.”

“Did he leave his wife?”

“Almost. The spell was broken by a vampire who help cast it. Vampires often turns on others and the vampire turned on the Witch Fae. The vampire took pleasure watching her plans blow up in her face for his amusement. Since it sounds like Matius is conflicted, another party is trying to undo the spell.”

“Another party?”

“Another vampire.”

“Nyx!”

“Who is Nyx.”

“Matty’s niece. She’s vampire, maybe she’s trying to undo.. What happens when it’s broken? Will Matty and I go back to normal.”

“That depends on how you feel for him. Do you still love him?”

Ming became silent for a few moments.

“No..”

“Then give me a chance. I like you Ming. After what all Ling said and hanging out with you tonight. I like you.”

“Wow.. But.. But my parents.. They think him and I are still married..”

“I can’t date you if they still believe that.”

“I’ll tell them the truth.”

 

 

Adam and Ming return to the house. They carefully enter the house to avoid waking anyone up. Ming finds Matius still up as he was waiting for her. “Where have you been?” Asked Matius with a stern tone. “With Adam.” Ming replied. Matius quickly stands up, “What were you thinking?! You can’t be hanging out with him! Were married remember?” Shouted Matius. Ming snaps back, “Are you kidding?! We are not married anymore! I can hang out with Adam if I want to.”  Matius throws his arms with anger, “That’s not what your parents think!” Ming smirks, “I’ll telling them the truth in the morning. I want to date Adam.” Matius’ jaw dropped when he heard Ming wanting to date Adam. “But Ming.. You can’t. I still love you.” Said Matius. Ming was stunned by Matius’ words “I still love you.”

Echoed in Ming’s mind but she soon snapped out of it and grew angry, “Wait! You said that you loved Jade now you still love me? Which is it Matius? Do you love me or do you love Jade.” Matius steps towards Ming, “You. I’ve been feeling so strange.. I can’t explain it.. I really can’t. I don’t love Jade. I never did. It’s like I was under a spell.” Ming lowers her head and moves away from Matius, “Adjests. That’s a spell.. Jade cast a spell to make her fall for her and made me walk away from you. Nyx broke the spell…” Matius was confused for a moment, “What? Adjests? Is Jade some kind of witch? I was under a spell? How did you know?” Ming sighs, ” Cause Adam seen this before.. His brother’s situation was kinda like ours. Jade is a Witch Fae hybrid. And your daughter.. well she’s probably not yours. I saw Jade hook up with Donovan Steel.. more than once. They rumors are true Matius. Jade is a escort, Don is her highest paying client. Look at the baby.. She looks like him and Jade.. Not you.” Matius walked away and sat on the edge of the bed holding his head in his hands, ” I know the baby isn’t mines.. Azalea had blood work when she was born.. Her DNA didn’t match mines. I had my doubts that she was even mines.. The timing was off.  Where does this lead us? Can we be together again? I love you Ming… I really do..” Ming tries to fight the tears from her eyes, “But Matius.. I don’t love you.”

 

 

In the morning Matius came across Adam and confronted him on the spot. Matius believe Adam is the reason why Ming doesn’t love him nor want to work out things with him.

“Hey Mat.”

“Don’t even..”

“Whoa, what I do?”

“Ming.”

“Hey now.. I didn’t have sex with her.”

“That’s not what I mean.. You are convincing her that she doesn’t love me!”

“Hey dude, I’m not convincing her about nothing.. If she doesn’t love you then she doesn’t. Besides you’re married to Jade now.”

“I don’t care about Jade. I care about Ming!”

“Ahh so the Adjests has finally broken. Sorry dude, you can’t have Ming. She doesn’t want you. You had your chance.”

“I will get her back..”

“Alright.. But first you need to do something about your wife Jade.”

 

 

Ming gets ready for the day and calls her parents to the dining table. “Mom, Dad… I have something to confess. Matius and I are actually divorced. We been divorced since Rio was 12.” Said Ming nervously. Tomeo sighs, “Why did you lie to us honey?” Ming started to tear up, “I didn’t want to disappoint you both. You both don’t believe in divorce and Dad has been sick.. I didn’t want to disappoint you..” Cecelia gets up and hugs Ming, “Oh sweetie, it’s okay. If it didn’t work out  then it’s fine. Our views on life had changed.. You wouldn’t had disappointed us.” “I’m sorry mom.” Cried Ming. “Why did you tell us now?” Asked Tomeo. Ming wipe her eyes, “Adam. He asked me out.” A huge grin grew across Tomeo’s face, “Then what are you waiting for? Go on a date with him.” Ming was shocked on how well her parents took the news. Unknown to Ming and Matius, Mr. and Mrs. Tran already knew they weren’t married anymore when Rio accidentally slipped that info out.

 

 

Ming was greeted by Adam who was waiting for outside. “How did they take it?” Adam asked. “Well, very well.” Smiled Ming. “Shall we go on our date now?” Asked Adam. Ming nods.

 

 

Ming and Adam went on a lovely date..

 

 

While Matius and Rio had some father and son time in the park.

 

 

Tomeo takes Rio fishing and asks Matius to join in. He may not be his son in law anymore but he still sees Matius as his son.

 

 

Cecelia and Ling stayed at home and spent time with the new baby Isabella.

 

 

The date Ming had with Adam went surprising well. Ming enjoyed her time with Adam as he shown her around. She only been hanging out with Adam for a couple of days and she can feel a connection with him. Ming never thought she could ever find herself happy again after losing Matius to Jade. ” I wished upon a star. This may sound silly but I feel that my wish is coming true because of a shooting star..

After a movie, roses and a massage, Ming and Adam shared their first kiss in the hot tub under the stars. Ming hasn’t been this happy since she first met Matius many years ago. Any feelings that Ming had for Matius slowly faded away into the night that she shared with Adam. Ming was happy. Ming was sure that she may of found someone finally. Ming knew that she had to leave in the morning, leaving Adam behind and returning home with Matius and Rio. Ming wonders if she could pull off a long distance relationship with Adam.

 

 

As the sun rises Ming, Matius and Rio pack their belongs for their journey back home. This was a bitter moment for Ming as she doesn’t want to leave Adam. Matius knew that he have to face Jade once he gets home. Matius thinks about what he’s going to say to Jade once he return. Rio wants to return so he can flirt with girls at school. Ming found herself dragging herself, moving slowly through the house. “Almost ready?” Asked Matius as he grabs his bags. Ming sighs, “Almost..” Ming lightly knocks on Adam’s bedroom door.

 

 

“Adam?”

“Come in Ming.”

“It’s almost time for us to go..but I don’t wanna leave.”

“I don’t want you to leave either but you have to.”

“I want to stay here with you..”

“Me too but we will be together soon.”

“What do you mean?”

“I’m going to put in a transfer to Lucky Palms. We can get our own place. I want to be with you Ming.”

“Seriously? You’ll move to Lucky Palms?”

“You’re worth it.”
