The darkness Within

Chapter 3: A painful past is always hard to forget

People started to surround them, she immediately drag themselves out of it. Beatrice grabbed her things that she had thrown away and loo at Crisanto.

”Be careful next time. ” She said and walk away, Crisanto watched Beatrice figure getting further and further away but when Beatrice was so far now and couldn be seen anymore, Crisanto immediately realized that he still didn returned the bracelet that Beatrice suddenly dropped when they had crossed path at the school.

”U-uh! WAIT! ” Crisanto called and chased after Beatrice but Beatrice was now nowhere to be seen in sight. He sighed in disappointment when he realized that he couldn see Beatrice anywhere.

”I was supposed to return her bracelet back to her that she accidentally dropped, but here I am, being an idiot and probably be dead by now if it weren for her. The gentleman was supposed to be the one who will save the damsel in distress, not a girl saving a gentleman. ” He

said as he run his hand through his hair.

e an idiot. Remember that. ”

Crisanto smiled as he remember what Beatrice said to him. ”Im an idiot alright. ” He chuckled and walked back to his destination that he was supposed to be going before he spotted Beatrice.

Meanwhile, Beatrice entered the hospital and walked in the room number 392 and there on the hospital bed could be spotted a woman laying on it, she seems to be in her early forties. The woman had a very pale skin with a skinny body, she also had a wavy blonde hair.

The woman look like a corpse because of her pale skin and skinny figure, and to top at that, she is also not moving while her eyes is completely shut close. If it weren for the oxygen and heartbeat, the woman would probably be mistaken as a dead body.

Beatrice placed her things on the couch and grabbed the fruits and bouquet she bought before arriving to the hospital. She put the bouquet to the vase and placed the fruits to the bowl, which is near the mirror, as she finished arranging the fruits, she raised her head and faced the mirror accidentally. Beatrice was about to sit down but her reflection started to talking.

”Its all your fault you know… its your fault as to why you mother was put in that state. ” Her reflection told her. ”I know… ” Beatrice voiced out, she didn even deny it.

”And the fact that it was supposed to be you, who will be in that state instead of your mom. ” Her reflection stated causing Beatrice to grit her teeth. ”shut up ” Beatrice spoked.

”Oh?… but its true though, it was supposed to be you tha- ”


Beatrice punched the mirror causing it to break, alerting the nurses from the noise. The nurses immediately opened the door of the room where Beatrice and her mom was in.

”Is everything okay? We heard shouting and a glass breaking. ” One of the nurses asked. Beatrice put up a fake smile again, while her hands is hiding behind her back acting innocent like she just didn punch the mirror.

”Everything is fine, its just some cockroach popping out of nowhere so I had to throw something to kill it but I missed and hit the mirror instead, causing it to break. ” Beatrice made up a fake explanation to cover up that she is the one who punched the mirror.

”Oh, thank goodness. I thought it was some kind of robber getting in. ” The other nurse voiced out, as all of them sighed in relief. ”A robber? Pfft-! I don think they will risk climbing something this high to b honest. ” Beatrice giggled, the nurses laughed in realization.

”Oh right *chuckle* my bad… are you okay throwing that shards away? Or do you want one of us to call the janitor to clean that up? ” one of the nurse asked her. Beatrice shook her head.

”Don worry. I can do it alone. No need to worry and call the janitor. ” She answered the nurse honestly. ”Okay then… have a nice day miss Finley. ” They bowed and walked out of the room. Beatrice dropped the façade and look at her bleeding hand, she grabbed a roll of bandages from the drawer and wrapped it to her hand.

After bandaging her bleeding hand, she started cleaning the scattered shards on the floor. When it was only the last shards left, she noticed that theres a CCTV (closed-circuit television) camera watching the room. Beatrice instinct screamed danger.

”I got to throw that record tape away before they will report that I was lying. ” Beatrice whispered to herself as she grabbed the last shard and throwed it in the trash, she didn notice that her reflection is crying before she closed the trash bin.

She look back to her mother longingly and back at the CCTV camera. ”Im sorry mom but I have to do this because they will think that I was mental. ” She said and kissed her mothers forehead.

”Please wake up sooner mom, things are getting different without you. ” She spoke one last time and left the room. As Beatrice left, her mothers finger moved slightly.Beatrice walked in the CCTV room, but when she did, she saw that the guard who is in charge of the camera is already dead leaning at the wall. Beatrice senses is on high alert as she fell that someone is creeping towards her from behind. Without any second, the person that creeped behind her drop to the ground dead.

The head of the person got twisted to the other way because the ambusher didn expect Beatrice to notice and attack immediately. Beatrice noticed that the person she instantly killed is a male with a snake tattoo at his neck.

The Snake Organization Beatrice thought as she heard a clap causing her to look towards the noise, the noise is coming from the chair that is facing the CCTV screen.

”Well, well, well… ” The chair turned around and faced her. ”If it isn the Beatrice Finley. The mafias so ever talented young executive. ” A short fat bald male said, as Beatrice glared at him.

”Where did you get that information? ” She asked, the bald male raised a folder. ”Its all in here. ” He said with a smirk. Beatrice took a step forward but a knife was throwed at her from the dark part of the room but Beatrice had a quick reflex so she managed to dodge it.

Beatrice look to where the knife comes from and two men came out of their hiding spot, which is the dark part of the room since they are wearing a black cloak.
