Squid buried his face in his hands as a tear rolled down his cheek, “Why…of all people…why Aye?!” he cried, trying to refer from weeping in front of his friends but failing.
Stampy hugged him gently for comfort, “I…I don’t know what to say, but its okay…he may have died with cold hands bit at least he’s in a better place now…”
A girl and a boy, both dressed in black, walked past the friends. They were silent, but the girl put a note into Envy’s hand. Envy was about to say something before she looked over the note, the cover said ‘No words are needed to be said, just read’. She tapped Stampy on the shoulder and handed him the note,
Meet us at 6o’clock Friday night this week. No weapons but bring a member of the bullies. We’ll explain this then
9th street in the allyway next to the abandoned hall.
And if you DARE turn this note in to the police, we’ll find you and your head will be on our wall.
Stampy read the note out loud so the others could hear. Envy looked scared to death while Chache and Squid just stayed in their seats, eyes wide.
“…should we go?” Stampy asked, breaking the silence.
Chache looked around, “It could be a trap-”
“But they said to bring a member of the bullies…who should we take?” Envy interrupted him.
Squid stood up, “Azure needs to know about this first, its Wednesday, so we have two days to set up,”
“This is a threat, you should tell your dad Squid…” Azure said after reading the note.
Envy growled, “We’re not scared, and why are you just suddenly all like ‘oh this is a threat, you should go tell someone!’ No one is scared, so let’s just get one of the bullies and go!” she shouted at her.
Stampy flicked her ear to make her shut up, “We just need help, your good at taking to people so…”
Azure shook her head, “No, the only thing I can do to help is get Ian,”
Envy flinched, “How did you know we were going to get Ian?!”
“…he seemed like the most obvious.”
“Why do I have to come with you? The guys will get mad at me!” Ian snarled at the friends as they walked to their meeting point.
Envy rolled her eyes, “We’ve told you already!”
Azure grabbed Squid’s jacket before he could continue, “What?” he asked the female, stopping and looking at her.
She pointed into an allyway, “We’re here…”
The allyway was gloomy; the streetlight near them flickered off, causing the area to become pitch black. Someone lit a torch from the allyway and pointed it at a wall. The wall had writing on it, ‘Stay quiet and no one gets hurt…’ it said, the phrase was written in blood. Azure stepped into the allyway and motioned the others to follow, two figures stood in the middle of the allyway, both in black so it was hard to see them, “Hm…you actually did as we told you too…” one said, his voice was deep and dark.
Envy stepped forward, “Why’d we have to come here?” she asked in a firm tone.
“And why did I have to come too?” Ian added.
One of the males in black stepped forward, “I advise that if you don’t like blood, you look away…and if you don’t want to get hurt, step back…” he took a knife out of his pocket and…
A sharp pain struck Ian’s neck as the knife met his skin, Warm liquid trailed down his neck as some splattered the wall and Ian dropped to the floor. His body lifeless. Envy covered her mouth, her eyes wide with fear, and started to cry silently.
“Two can keep a secret…” The figure smiled as he licked Ian’s blood off the knife.
“…If one of them is dead,” The other grinned.
Azure slowly walked out of the allyway as her friends stood and stared. The one with the knife stepped back and the other stepped forward and kneeled down next to Ian’s lifeless body, “Feel free to leave, but stay if you want…” he said as he removed Ian’s shirt.
Stampy padded out of the allyway while the others stayed and watched. The male used an item seen in a hospital to slice Ian’s chest open. He started removing his muscles and his organs; he chucked most of them aside, but tossed his liver and both of his kidneys at the other male to put in a bag. They took his unneeded organs and tied them together, forming something that looked like a rope. One threw it over a pipe over-head and the other tied it around Ian’s neck, and before the friends knew it, Ian had the same fate as Quentin.
