It was a good thing I arrived on time. I quickly called the ambulance and they took Raymond who was bleeding seriously to the hospital while I took the gunman and Diamond to station.
Diamond was strangely quiet, just sobbing on her own, I felt sorry for her, she had to go throwugh all of this in her condition.
We got to the police station, while Diamond went to write her statement, I took the gunman to the interrogation room
“Who are you and why did you try to kill Diamond knight” I asked
” Listen, I don’t have any grudges against the girl, I was just fulfilling the order given to me” he replied
“Who sent you to kill her”
“You’re really stupid you know, so you just expect me to tell you, ah ah stupid” he said and laughed
“You’re going to tell me who sent you l, or else” I yelled but he just keep on laughing. I lost my cool and started raining punches on him before one of the guard on duty dragged me out.
“Stupid” he said and laughed again while cleaning his bloody lips
“Let go of me” I yelled at the guard
“You gotta keep your cool man” my colleague said to me “listen why don’t you just take that pretty girl out there to see her princey, she’s been asking about him. While I finish the interrogation. I promise to get the information outta him” he finished and I nodded
“Oh, and be careful on your way to the hospital, I don’t know how the press got wind of the situation that place is crowded by fans and journalists”
“Okay thanks” I said and left. Immediately I came out Diamond rushed to me, she looked really scared
“Can we go meet princey now”
“Yes, and don’t worry, your princey is alright okay”
“Really?!” she asked with hope
“Really” we got into the car and headed for the hospital. It was a private hospice owned by Starz. As we drove I watched Diamond, she was still moody and she looked so innocent.
“Who would want to kill her” I wondered. We got to the hospital and I was shocked at the crowd I saw at the gate of the hospital. The securities were really busy keeping the fans away.
We drove in and head to the floor were Ray was kept. We got into the room and saw ma’am Jane, Ray’s mom. Immediately she saw us she rushed towards us and hugged Diamond
“I’m glad you’re okay, my princess and thank you for coming on time” she said referring to me
“Anytime aunt, how’s he?”
“He’s okay, just lost a lot of blood, bit he’ll wake up anytime soon, now Diamond don’t be sad a princess should always be happy okay”
” I’m not a princess, Diamond is just a mad girl that puts princey life in danger” she said and started weeping
“And who said you’re are mad, come here dear, I know what will cheer you up, ice cream” aunt said and Diamond smiled, so simple minded.
“Danny stay here with Ray, I and my baby will go get a double scooped ice cream. Who knows maybe one of the fans brought cake” she said and I chuckled
Not long after they left, Ray woke up
“Hey bro, how you doing”
“Fine, where’s Diamond?” he asked while trying to stand up
“Don’t get up, she’s with your mom getting ice cream” I said and he chuckled
“Your mom is crazy, if that’s who you are asking about, while Diamond is devastated” he smiled weakly “I think she should live with you, she isn’t safe for now and you know her condition” I said
“Okay, I’ll call her dad. He would be really worried”
“Ah, I knew they would being cake” Aunt Jane said bursting in with Diamond. She was good a large cake and two ice cream sundaes
“Oh my, Thank God you’re awake Ray, I was really worried” she said dropping the cake and coming towards us while Diamond just trudged behind like she was scared.
“You were worried, but you still had time for cake and ice cream” Ray said and scoffed
“Ohhhhh, you are now well enough to question my worrying, do you know how much of my beauty I wasted donating blood for you. Infact I’m taking my blood back”
“Hmmmm, mom if I die, you’ll shed a lot of tears ooo”
“It’ll be tears of Joy, it’s even better that I waste my tears than my blood”
I just watched the drama unfolding before my eyes. This family will not kill me with laughter. That’s the way the mother and son behave when alone but if you see them outside they look as if they don’t have time for fun. It’s only Diamond that has been able to bring the playful side of Ray out in the open.
I glanced at Diamond, she was sitting at a corner staring at Aunt Jane, who was pulling Ray’s ear.
“Okay aunt, how about we go take some gifts from the fans outside and leave Ray and Diamond to talk” I said and took her by the hands
“Good idea Dan, at least I have someone that cares about my well being, not like some who wants to drain me dry” she said and glanced at Raymond who just laughed.
I watched Diamond keenly, she kept stealing glances at me with sad cute eyes
“Are you going to continue taking pictures of me with your eyes or are you going to come give me a hug” I said and she smiled weakly as she came
“So what’s with the long face”
“Diamond is a bad girl, she almost got princey killed”
“But princey didn’t die, princey is Superman”
“Yes, but Diamond is mad, bad for princey”she sobbed
“And who told you that you are mad?” I asked as I wiped her tears
“Clarissa, the bad man and princey”
“I told you, u were mad?” I asked shocked
“Yes, in the video you told Clarissa I was mad and you loved her”
“Is that why you ran off, how many times will I tell you not to believe what the evil classroom says” I said and she chuckled “you know what?, You are mad”
“Unh?” she asked confused
“Yes, and you know who else is mad”
Come closer let me tell you I said and she leaned closer “Mom”
“What!” she yelled and laughed
“Yes, so do feel sad any time someone calls you mad, because all the women in my life is mad, so it’s not your fault, it’s mine”
“Ah, so you are the one who made mom and I mad, I understand now. You are a bad princey” she said and smacked me
“Ouch, and plsss let this be a secret between us, don’t let mom know”
“Don’t let me know what”
“Mom, when did you come in, I was telling Diamond how much I love you”
“Diamond, tell me the truth what did he say” I looked at Diamond pleadingly
“He said you were mad, that he’s the one that made us both mad”
“Traitor” I exclaimed while she poked her tongues out at me
“Mom, you wouldn’t believe her over your own son, I mean she’s mad”
“RAYMOND!!!, so you have the guts to call me, who carried you for nine months mad, today I’ll show you how mad I can be” she said as she drew her sleeves up.
“Mom, take it easy, you know I’m in the hospital bed” I pleaded as she can towards me
I left school as soon as I heard the news, that Clarissa is really evil, she didn’t even behaved as if her sister was in trouble, she only only went to the house in hope to see Raymond. She was even fully made up.
We arrived at the hospital the same time but the guards didn’t let us in.
“What the hell!, Don’t you know who I am” she yelled
“I’m really sorry ma’am but we can’t let anyone in with out confirmation” the guard said and walked off to make a call perhaps to get confirmation
“Plsss tell them it’s Jessie and I want to see Diamond” I yelled
He came back and let me in, clarissa tried to enter also but he didn’t let her in
“Sorry, miss Jessie only”
“What!!, You’re so getting fired for this” she said and stormed off while I just rolled my eyes
I got into Ray’s ward and was shocked to see him tied up to the bed, I couldn’t help but laugh
“Who did that to you?”
“Ah, thank God you’re here, can you please set me free, those crazy ladies, tied me up and went to get doughnuts from my fan” he said and I laughed
” So how is Diamond”
“I think the question should be how am I?, I was the one who got injured and they still beat me up”
“Well you deserve it, next time you make Diamond cry I’ll join them in beating you up”
“Great, as if two is not enough” he said and I laughed
“Okay, now to get serious, Starz released the contestants for this year’s competition”
“Diamond is a contestant” I said and he chuckled
“I knew they would do that, they always have their way no matter what”
“Yes, but clarissa, won’t be happy about it, do I think Diamond should stay with you till after the competition to keep her safe and we still need to find out who tried to kill her”
“Poor Diamond, she has so many enemies, I just hope she gets well soon, so she can stand for her self” I said as my phone rang, I checked the caller, it was Danny
📞 Hello babe, plsss are you with Ray”
📞 Yes, and what’s with the commotion over there”
📞 Can you please give the phone to Ray” he was sounding stressed “okay” I saw and passed the phone to Raymond
“What the hell, how did that happen” he exclaimed as soon as he took the phone
“Bye” he cut the call and handed me the phone
“The man that attacked Diamond, just killed himself”
“What!!, this is serious”
Hmmmm, I reserve my comment
Thank God that princey is alright. Even though ma’am Jane wants to kill him for me.
Evil classroom, hmmmm, Sha continue what you are doing. Your time would come.
