SIREN Episode 18 (The beautiful killer) by Azeemah Salami

Mia⚔️

“Wow…nice office” I smiled as we both walked into Darrel’s home office.
“Thanks” He smiled and went to sit on a new looking swivel chair.
“You ordered that?” I asked.
“Nah,i gat it from the store including this desk too” He said.

There are piles of books on the desk,two HP laptops;he was already working on one..
Files were arranged properly beside the stationery tray.
A desk lamp was placed just beside the second laptop.

Wow!
He works at night??

The whole content on the desk were arranged neatly and i admired Darrel’s competence,even in arranging things.
My gaze switched to the wall, just behind his head, a wall planner was hung there.
There’s a waste bin too.

“How did you manage to create a beautiful office overnight?” I asked in amazement.
He smiled; Well, I’ve been on it for days,i just got to round it up today”

“Wow..it’s amazing” I said.
“Thanks” He said.

I noticed the two chairs opposite Darrel’s.

“Do you plan on inviting guests?” I asked.
“No,just you and Nath” He said and i smiled.
“Are we all going to be working together?” I asked.
“At times, though i love to work alone but I’ll be needing your ideas in some aspect” He said.

Good!

“This is where I’m gonna be spending most of my time now” He said.
“That’s fine,you’re so keen on capturing this assassin soon”
“Yeah…I’m afraid she’ll kill more people if i don’t capture her soon.” He said sadly.

“So how do you intend on doing that?” I asked and sat on one of the chairs opposite him.
“Im sorry, this is meant to be a private investigation. Only the CIA leader has the right to know about that” He said with a smile
“Of course…I’m just being curious” I forced a smile.

Why is he being so difficult!

“We look so much like business partners right now” He smiled.
“Yeah” I said.

“I should leave you to work” I said and stood up.
“Okay,you can come in here anytime you like”
I smiled and nodded.
“Work hard okay?” I said.
“Thanks” He said.

I walked out of his office and gently closed the door behind me.
I got to the living room and sat on a couch.

If only he had told me how he intended to capture me,I’ll start looking for ways to prevent it.
But he’s way too smart and strong-headed.

I need to go wash the dishes and go chat with Nath later.
I stood up and walked to the kitchen,i already placed the stained dishes in the sink.
I started washing them, thinking about how to get information from Darrel.

He won’t tell anyone a thing except to the CIA leader.
Should i just eavesdrop when he’s on the call with the CIA leader?

No!
That won’t work.

He’s now very determined to capture me and I’m sure if he gets to carry out the plan he’s devising, it might weaken me.
I started rinsing the dishes and placing then on the drainboard.

I wiped my hand on the napkin after i was done.
I opened the fridge and brought out a chilled pack of juice with two glass cups.
I searched for cookies but couldn’t find any.

I will have to bake cakes and cookies tomorrow.

I placed them on a tray and walked out of the kitchen.
I headed to the door and pushed open with my leg.

Nath smiled and quickly grabbed out a chair for me when he saw me approaching.
He placed a stool in front of it too.
“Thanks” I smiled and sat down.
I placed the tray on the stool.

Nath sat opposite me grinning from ear to ear.
“I thought you weren’t gonna come again” He said starting to twist the cap of the juice.
“Darrel was showing me his home office and i must confess it looks great, even better than some real offices” I said.
“I’m not surprised cause agent Darrel is good at almost everything” He said and poured juice into our glass cups.

“Do you think he will succeed in capturing the assassin?” I asked Nath.
“I hope he does,because from what I’ve heard so far,that assassin kills anyone in charge of her case and it’s true cause she has been here and has attempted to kill agent Darrel severally”

“Really?” I feigned surprise.
“Yeah,but I’m not sure how long agent Darrel will keep surviving her attacks. I don’t want to loose him soon. I wish he’ll just quit and leave, that’ll be more better than him getting killed” He said sadly.
“Yeah, that’ll be much better” I said and sipped my juice.

🍥🍥

It’s night already,I’m done making dinner but Darrel is still in his office.
He hasn’t stepped out since that afternoon.

I dished out some macroons and spiced chicken in a flat ceramic plate.
I picked a bottle of water from the fridge and a glass cup.
I placed everything on a tray and headed to Darrel’s office.

I opened the door and walked in,he was busy scribbling something on a notepad,his desk lamp was on.
“Your dinner is here” I said and placed the tray on his desk.
“Thanks” He said without glancing up.

I tried to peer into what he was scribbling but i couldn’t see it clearly.
It was some sort of address.

I turned and started walking to the door.
“Smells delicious,what’s in here?” He asked.
I turned back to him. He has stopped scribbling,he was looking at me now.
“Macroons with spiced chicken” I said.
“Wow” He smiled and gave me thumb up.

I smiled and walked out of his office.
I need to go serve Nath his too.
*
I sat down to eat my dinner after going to serve Nath.

Was he scribbling an address?
Where’s planning to go to?

I bit into my chicken and savoured the taste for a while before i resumed my thinking.

My head is just gonna explode if i don’t stop guessing what Darrel is planning.
I should enjoy my dinner, there’s more time to think.

I felt Darrel’s absence at the dining.
I’m not very used to eating alone,we were always eating together at Pine estate.

‘should i go join him in his office?’
“Hell no” I groaned at the thought.

I continued eating..

🥨🥨🥨

“Darrel are you done eating?” I asked loudly, standing outside his office door.
I wanna pack the dishes and wash them before going to bed.

“No Mia,I’ll clear the dishes myself once I’m done” He said.
“You sure?” I asked.
“Yeah and why don’t you wanna come in?”
“I don’t wanna disturb you” I said.
“Ohh..so you’re going to bed now?”
“Yeah…goodnight” I said.
“Goodnight”


I walked out of the bathroom in my pajamas after my night routine.
I sat on the bed and grabbed my phone from the stool.

I unlocked it and saw i had a new message.

💬Check your email Mia.
You have a mission for tomorrow night.
💌Boss

“Yaay!” I exclaimed happily.

⚔️Darrel⚔️

A notification appeared on the screen of my laptop.
I clicked on it.

💌 Hey, I’ll be having a mission tomorrow night by 9pm at Bond street, building 8. I dare you to meet me there.

💌 Anonymous

What!

I wiped my eyes and stared at the message once more.
This is real!
Gosh! Exactly what I’ve been expecting.

I swear down, I’ll make sure she goes down tomorrow night.
I’ve been waiting for her message and here it is.

I smiled and picked my phone…
I need to inform the CIA leader so he’ll send some back up with me tomorrow night.

He picked up the call at the second ring.

📞Hi, Mr Willmer.

📞Agent Darrel. Is anything wrong? It’s quite late.

📞Yes Sir,i just got a message from the assassin.

📞 What! Really?

📞Yes sir.

📞OMG! None of the past detectives has ever gotten a message from this assassin!

📞Well… I did,she already disclosed the location and time she’s gonna be assassinating tomorrow.

📞Wow! Are you sure it’s genuine.

📞Yes sir,it is. I’ll need some backup. I will make sure she goes down tomorrow” i said determinedly.

📞I’ll be very happy if you can do that,I’ll get back to you tomorrow.

📞Okay sir,have a good night” I said and disconnected the call.

I smiled and dropped my phone.
I bet she’s not aware that I’ll be coming with backup.
I really wanna see how she’ll be able to defeat everyone tomorrow.

I pressed the power button on my laptop and watched it go dark.
I closed it and then stood up from the chair…

I stretched and yawned.
I’m starting to feel sleepy already.

I picked the tray and walked out of my office.
I’m so proud of myself to be able to construct a office with just an empty room.

Good job Darrel!

I closed the door behind me and took my dinner tray to the kitchen.
I actually felt Mia’s absence when i ate alone in my office and i nearly invited her to join me but then i thought against it.

I don’t want to believe I’m starting to get fond of her.
She has spent just two days here!
Get back to your senses Darrel.

I washed my dish in the sink and kept it back in its place.
I wiped my hands off a clean napkin before walking out of the kitchen.

I started climbing the stairs to my room wondering why Katy hasn’t called me yet.
Eric called me earlier today but Katy hasn’t,she hasn’t called me since she told me Mia is a criminal.

Is she pissed at me?

I should give her a call tomorrow but i can’t,I’ll need to prepare hard against tomorrow night.
I opened the door to my room and walked in.

I jumped on my bed..

How could you sleep without performing your night routine Darrel.

I groaned and reluctantly got up from my bed.
I headed straight for the bathroom.

SIREN Episode 19 (The beautiful killer) by Azeemah Salami

Mia⚔️

“Mia,do you want to go with me for morning jog?” I heard Darrel asked behind me.
I was preparing breakfast in the kitchen.
I switched off the gas cooker before turning to him.
He’s clad in a jogging suit and his hair was packed into a ponytail.

“Morning Jog?” I asked.
“Yeah”
“Do you do it before?”
“No,but i have to do it today” He said.
“Why?” I asked.
“Umm…i would love to keep the reason to myself. Do you wanna come along?” He asked.

“Nah” I said.
“Okay,see ya” He said and walked away.
I watched him till he walked out of the door.

What’s up with him?
He was looking like someone whose plan already worked out.
Is he about to succeed in his plan to capture me?

No!
I dropped the spoon i was holding and hurried to his office.
I made sure i heard the gate close before opening the door.
I walked in and quickly glanced around for a CCTV and i was glad i didn’t see any.

I walked to his table and opened the laptop he was working on yesterday.
I pressed the power button and it came into life.

I bit my lower lip as the damn thing requested for a password.
I wish Robbie was here,he would have hacked into this damn thing.

I sighed and started opening the notepads on his desk,there’s nothing about me there.
Nothing at all.

Is he not working on my case?
How come there’s nothing about me.
Every damn thing will sure be on this laptop.
Darrel is too smart to keep things in notepads.

Then what was he scribbling yesternight.
I continued my search and saw a familiar address on one of the note pads.

This is the home address of the couple i assassinated a month ago.
He wants to go make findings. I bet he would find none.
I do sealed job, nothing is always exposed.

Keep searching Mia.
*
I didn’t find any more important thing in the books.
By now,the books were already scattered.
I started arranging it.

I proceeded to the files when i was done arranging the books.
I started opening the files one after the other.

Geez!
Mia, aren’t you taking long here.

A file nearly dropped off my hands when i heard the sound of the gate.
Oh my god!
I started arranging the files back in it’s place with immediate effect.

I pressed the power button on the laptop and didn’t wait for it to go off completely before closing it.
I rushed out of the office and ran to the kitchen.

I breathed in and out as i switched on the gas cooker.
I adjusted my chef cap and apron trying to appear as normal as possible.

I heard the door opened and i was expecting him to show up at the kitchen immediately but he didn’t.
I continued with the breakfast i was making.

“Mia,did you go into my office?” I suddenly heard behind me.
My heart beat accelerated and i tried to wear a smile as i turned around.

“Yes Darrel” I said.
“To clean right?” He asked.
“Exactly” I said, hiding my relief.

He dabbed the sweat on his face with his face towel.
Even though his hair was packed in a ponytail,some strands clung to his forehead, looking more dark with sweat.

Now I’m convinced that Darrel can be cute with even a bald head.

He opened the fridge and grabbed a chilled bottle of water for himself.
He twisted the cap and gulped the whole water down his throat.

“Woah…you finished that?” I asked and he smiled.
“Yeah” He threw the empty bottle in the waste bin outside the kitchen.
“Breakfast isn’t ready yet?” He asked hungrily.
“Yeah, it’ll be ready before you finish freshening up” I said.
“I better go do that then” He said and walked out of the kitchen.

I sighed.

🍥🍥🍥

“I’ll be going to the CIA office once I’m done with my breakfast” Darrel said and i almost asked why.
“Okay,i hope everything is fine?” I asked.
“Sure” He said with his mouth full.
I nodded and faced my breakfast,i keep having this feeling that something isn’t right.

“Where did you learn how to cook delicious meals?” He asked.
“My older brother is a chef” I said.

Joel is a chef… isn’t he?

“Wow,i would love to meet him someday” He said.
“Of course you will”… I said
‘after you’re dead’ I added inwardly.


“Am i good to go?” Darrel asked walking into the living room.
I’m watching a movie after i was done with the dishes.

“Yeah,you look perfect” I said.
“Thanks,do you wanna come along?” He asked.
“To the CIA office?” I asked.
“Yeah”
“Why?”
“Nath will be coming along too,i don’t want to feel lonely and bored” He said.

“Thanks but I’ll be fine,the TV will serve as a company” I said.
“Are you sure?” He asked.
“Yeah?” I smiled,glad that I’ll have some time to practice for my mission tonight.
“Okay bye. I’ll make sure we don’t stay long”
“Alright bye” I said and watched him walked out of the door.

I sat impatiently, waiting to hear the sound of his car drive out.
It finally did.
I rushed to the door and pulled it open a bit.

I watched as the gate closed automatically.

“They are gone” I jumped around and started practicing immediately.

👁️👁️👁️

I walked out of the bathroom after taking a cold bath.
It’s 4pm already, they’re not back yet.
I’ve stopped practicing hours ago.
I feel so strengthened now..I’m ready for anything that might come my way.

I got my body into a simple wear and i just combed down my hair.
I wore my slippers and walked out of my room.

The house was dead silent..
I already prepared lunch,i was waiting for them to get back before eating but i can’t wait anymore.

I walked into the kitchen and brought out the lunch from the fridge.
I switched on the microwave and placed it on a timer before pushing the meal inside.
I closed it and walked to the living room.

Ahh!
How could i leave the TV on?

I sat on the couch and watched it anyway.
I heard their car drove into the compound at the same time the timer went off.
I rushed to the kitchen and quickly switched off the microwave.

I brought out the meal which was now steaming hot.

Good thing they are back…
I didn’t wait in vain.

“I’m home” Darrel shouted from the living room.
“Welcome home” I said loudly and started dishing out our late lunch.

💢California💢

⚔️Katy⚔️

I sniffed as Eric patted my back.
“Com’on Katy,he didn’t called you for days doesn’t mean he doesn’t care about you” Eric said to me.

“He doesn’t! He refused to call me ever since i warned him about the live-in housekeeper he was about to employ” I said.
“No, he told me the housekeeper is no criminal. He interviewed her before employing her. She’s just a private person who doesn’t like exposing her personal information”

“All private person has one or two things they hide,most of the things hidden things are always bad!” I said and adjusted in my seat.
“Well…that’s thoughtful of you,I’ll inform Darrel about that”
“I’m not even concerned about that, how could Darrel not call me or text me for the past two days” I expressed my hurt.

“You know how Darrel is once he’s buried in work,he doesn’t think of other things. I’ve also been calling him but he’s not picking”
“Really?”
“Yeah”

That’s true..
Darrel doesn’t think about anything else once he’s buried in work, he’s probably working hard in capturing the assassin so he could return to California soon.
I shouldn’t be pissed at him.

” I already texted him and i hope he replies soon” Eric said and i nodded.
“Thanks Eric. I will text him too” I said.
“Good,I’ll return back to my seat” He smiled and walked away.

💬Darrel….” I was texting him when i saw Eric walking back to my table.

“Look” He smiled stretching his phone to me.
I took it and stared at the screen.

💬Buddy, I’m sorry I’ve not been picking your calls.
I’ve been busy.
How are you? And how’s Katy doing. I’ve missed her,I’m gonna give her a call tomorrow.

💌Darrel.

My lips spread in a wide grin and Eric chuckled.

💥Back in New York💥

⚔️Mia⚔️

I walked into my room after bidding Darrel a good night.
I quickly bolted my door and hurried to the bathroom.
I grabbed the key from the cabinet and walked back to my room.

I need to start getting ready for my mission tonight.

I unlocked my drawer and brought out the necessary things.
I started dressing up in my adorable ninja out.
I feel happy whenever I’m putting it on.
I loaded my pistol with enough bullets,and pulled on a red wig over my hair.
I wore my mask too,then my boots.

**

I was about connecting the rope to the gate when i heard the gate opened,the sound of a car driving out came next.

It’s Darrel’s car.
Where’s he driving to?
He might want to get something.

I watched him drive past my car which was already parked there at a corner.
I made sure he had driven far before connecting the rope to the gate.

I slide down the rope and landed on my feet.
I disconnected the rope and speedily ran to my car.
I opened the car door and got in,i twisted the key in the ignition and the car jerked to life.

“Bond street” I said and started following the direction of the Google map.

🚗🚗🚗

I’ll be assassinating Mr Rousey at building 8 but i parked in front of building one .
I don’t usually park in front of the exact buildings.

I stepped out of the car and locked it immediately.
I sighted building 8 from a distance and started walking towards it.

I was contemplating on climbing the wall or going through the gate when a bad aura washed over me.
I turned and was shocked to see almost ten cops standing behind me and pointing a gun at me.

Wow!
I smiled and turned back to the gate, almost five cops already appeared in front of me and i was more shocked to see Darrel among them.
How did he got the information?
I jerked back to reality when he spoke up.

“Surrender now!” Darrel said loudly and i nearly laughed.
Pistols were being pointed at me.

I hope Darrel already informed them that I’m putting on bulletproof,else they are all gonna waste their bullets tonight .
I walked closer to the gate ignoring them all.
They started shooting as i expected but none of their bullets affected me.

The gate is opened already and i stepped in.
I have nine bullets in my gun,two will be for Mr Rousey
There are almost twenty cops here,I’m just gonna kill seven of them with my pistol,I’ll handle the rest with my fist but i have to go accomplish my mission first.

I quickly locked the gate after me and left the fools shooting at the gate.
I rushed into the apartment of Mr Rousey and i bolted the door immediately.
I couldn’t find anyone in the little living room,there are just two bedrooms in the house as i was told.

I walked into the centre of the living room and saw two doors facing me..
I quickly pushed one of the doors open when i heard the cops starting to jump into the compound and trying to break down the door.
My guess was right.. I saw Mr Rousey walking out of his bathroom,unclad.

His eyes widened and his breathing hitched when he saw me.
I didn’t waste any time before shooting at him.

Those cops are damn fool!
They should have gotten him out before i got here.
Even if they got him out,I’ll still succeed in assassinating him.

I heard the door broke down,and heavy footsteps grew nearer.
I quickly climbed onto the nearest bedroom stool and pushed one of the ceiling boards,it gave way and i climbed through the opening,then returned the ceiling board to it’s place.
I crawled towards the farthest end of the building, looked out to see if anyone was around.

I climbed down the wall,using the openings i found.

I landed outside the gate on my feet.
I was about running to my car when four CIA agents surrounded me, pointing their pistols at me.

I scanned their faces…Darrel wasn’t among them but i know he’ll be somewhere close.
Steve was the only one i recognised among them and i smiled.
This might just be the opportunity to kill him but then i saw some cops running towards me, shooting at an alarming rate.
I released my remaining bullets on seven of them,they collapsed immediately.

The rest ran off..

I tucked my pistol in my ninja outfit and decided to fight the four CIA agents with my fist.
I threw one of them a punch in the mouth and i was so disappointed to see him fall like a weightless being.

The remaining three rushed at me but i quickly stopped them with my boot.
I raised Steve up with his CIA uniform and used him as a painful whip for the other two agents.
They fell on the floor, groaning.
I picked one of their pistols and shot two of them,they died instantly.

“Please don’t kill me,i swear i will quit being a CIA agent. I beg of you” Steve pleaded and i laughed.
I hit the pistol on his head and watched him sway helplessly to the floor.

I heard gunshot from a distance..
Why can’t they all come out and face me.

I started walking to my car but stopped when i saw two CIA agents appeared from a corner.
They pointed the guns at me.
I looked at them closely and saw it was Luke and Edwin.

I should kill them immediately but they deserve to live cause they were nice to me.
“Your hands up” Luke said.

If only he knew it was his crush…haha.

I kicked Edwin in the stomach and grabbed Luke by the neck.
I saw Edwin trying to shoot at me from the floor.
I quickly raised Luke and slammed him hard on Edwin’s body.

I grinned and headed to my car..
I looked around wondering where the rest of them were.

Cowards!

I unlocked my car and got in,i closed the door and inserted the key in the ignition.
My hands were already on the wheel,i glanced up to start driving only to see Darrel standing in front of my car,he was pointing a pistol at me,with his forehead bleeding heavily.

Damn!
Am i the one that hurt him?
No,i didn’t.

“Get down” He said slowly in his weak voice.

Shit!
Darrel move away or I’m just gonna kill you.
