Mint Eye Part 4
The final chapter….maybe???
Saeyoung had tried his tablet and phone, both were down. Bliss had obviously done something within the room to keep the electronics from functioning. The electric keypad on the door itself outside the room, was functioning just fine.
The twins sat on the bed, backs against the wall, feet dangling off. Saeran had the bedsheet wrapped around himself. They refrained from discussing plan B in front of MC. Afraid she might be able to communicate their intentions, so they sat, and waited. MC huddled on the other side of the room, Saeyoung staring at her, heart heavy at the fear in her eyes. She didn’t know him. Worse than that, she was afraid of him.
Saeyoung’s internal clock told him it was almost time. He had perfected time lapse while in the agency, there were times when he had to be precise without a timepiece. He elbowed Saeran, letting him know to begin to prepare, then slid off the bed and knelt in front of MC. Saeran unwound from the sheet and began to tear it in long strips.
MC cowered away from Saeyoung.
“Stay away from me! Your dangerous!” she cried.
Saeyoung laughed sadly, “You have no idea how ironic that statement is coming from you. How not very long ago I wanted you to say those very words.” He lowered his head and shook it, trying to keep the sting of tears from affecting him. He breathed out slowly, to steady his heart.
“I don’t know what the new savior has told you. But I would never hurt you MC. I would die first. I know you don’t believe me, but now it’s my turn to dig in my nails and not let you go. If it hadn’t been for you, I would still be in my own self-created misery. I wouldn’t have love. I would be alone, without a pack. You made my family possible and I will NOT let them take you away from me.”
MC couldn’t help but be glued to his eyes. His words she could dismiss, but his eyes spoke of truth. But the savior had told her this man was dangerous, that he hurt her and would hurt her child. She looked away, closing her eyes, if she did not look into his eyes, she could more easily disbelieve his words.
“I’m sorry MC. I know that you don’t trust me right now. And because of that, I can’t trust you either. Please, forgive me.” He grabbed her arms and Saeran grabbed her legs. She screamed and struggled, trying to free herself, but the twins were too strong for her. Saeran tied her ankles together with the strips of sheet, and Saeyoung tied her wrists behind her back. She kept screaming until Saeyoung covered her mouth with a third strip. He hated treating her this way, but it was all they could think of to keep her in check.
Saeyoung had been worried about her transforming, but Saeran had whispered to him that the possibility was low. When he was at Mint Eye, he was not allowed to transform without permission. He was sure that MC had been given a similar order. No matter what she might face, if she had been told not to transform unless given a specific order to do so, she wouldn’t. Even if it meant death. However, there was the possibility that Bliss did not know about MC being a werecat. Thankfully, it appeared that Saeran had been right.
“How long after the EMP goes off do you think Jumin’s men will enter?” Saeran asked.
“They’ll know as soon as it’s activated and move in, but they have a good mile to cover before gaining entrance into the building. I would say no more than 15 minutes. You should be able to find Yoosung in that time, yes?” Saeyoung asked.
