1 A story I'm writing on Wed 22 Sep 2010, 22:52
Kynan stared in horror as Micah held the gun positioned between Lorin's eyes and pulled the trigger. Time seemed to move slowly as Lorin fell to the ground, the life already gone from her blue eyes.An agonized cry ripped its way from his throat and he cradled Lorin's body against his chest.
"Micah, I swear to god, you will pay for this. I will hunt you down until you're dead."
A dark chuckle told Kynan that the other man wasn't afraid.
"You can try, but like you failed to save your wife, you will fail to kill me."
Kynan jolted awake, a thick sheen of cold sweat covered his body as he placed his face in his hands. How long was that nightmare going to haunt him? Until he went insane? He swore to kill that bastard for what he did. It had been five years. Five damn years since Lorin was killed and he still hadn't managed to find a single trace of Micah. He made a promise to Lorin that he would keep her safe and he failed her. Sighing, he stood up, threw on a pair of jeans, and headed downstairs.
"You really need to get some better coffee man, cause no offense, but this shit is nasty."
Kynan jumped at the sound of the familiar voice.
"What the hell Riden? It's six am. Don't you have someone else to annoy?"
Riden shrugged took another drink, and grimaced.
"Dude, seriously. Let me buy your coffee."
"Don't drink it if you don't like it. And you didn't answer my question. What the hell are you doing here?"
"Shya got a lead on Micah. Problem is, you can't have revenge on him."
Kynan frowned. Was this Shy's way of torturing him, cause it was working.
"Well why the hell not? I've hunted that son of a bitch down for five years and now, when we've finally found him, I can't kill him? Lorin was my wife for god's sake. I deserve at least that much. Lorin deserves it."
Riden sighed and set his coffee cup down on the table.
"I know man, but the reason you can't go after him, is because he has a hostage. Jem Magnus."
At the sound of the name, Kynan's blood ran cold.
"Are you sure? Please god tell me it's not Jem."
Riden frowned and glanced at Kynan, green eyes flashing with confusion.
"You know her?"
Grimly, Kynan nodded. He and Jem had dated, five years before he met Lorin. She left him and he'd closed his heart to everyone. Until Lorin. Jem had been the one woman he thought he'd spend forever with, until she betrayed him, shattering his trust and his heart. He never expected to her name mentioned again.
"She and I...dated five years before I met Lorin."
"You loved her." It was more of a statement than a question.
"I did. But she must not have felt the same way about me because two months after we'd been together for a year, she disappeared. Just packed her things and left without saying good-bye. No explanations, no apologies. She just left. I haven't heard from her since the day before she left. When I...when I asked her to marry me."
