SCManex - Playing With Fire (Chapter 10)
"Good..." He whispers, smiling. I felt a rush of evil thoughts flow through my body, but I felt like I was betraying Steven as well... I still love him... But I also love Aleks. I watched as Aleks gave me his hand, I grabbed his hand tightly as he pulled me to my feet and into a tight hug. I heard Aleks chuckle slightly when he suddenly pushed me against the wall, the knife lined up with my eyes.
"Uhh..." I mumble, confused.
"Now... You better do this... If you back out, I will still focus on taking out Steven..." He says, moving the knife down to my hand. "You betray me... And bad things are coming your way."
He grabbed my hand and slowly dragged the blade across it. I wimpered as I felt the blade dig into my hand.
"You're not gonna back out! Do I make that clear!" He shouts, pushing the knife futher into my hand.
"Mhmm" I whimper as I see blood appear on my hand.
"I said, DO I MAKE THAT CLEAR!" He shouts as he twists the blade, opening the cut even wider.
"YES!" I scream as I feel myself nearly pass out with pain.
"Good..." He says, yanking the knife out of my hand, it was covered in blood. He let's go of me and I fall to the floor clutching my arm.
"Let that be a warning of what might come if you disobey my orders..." He says, quietly as he walks out of the shed. I start to moan in pain as I watch blood pour out of my hand.
"What a bitch!" I shout, hoping he didn't hear me.
"This is going to be hard to hide isn't it..." I say as I look at my bleeding hand.
I stand up and walk towards the door, opening it and walking into the garden. I felt so weak, after being scared and losing a lot of blood from my hand. I stumbled slowly up the path until I reached the door, putting my other hand on the handle and pushing it open. The first thing I noticed was Aleks washing the dishes... Well, the knife. He smirked at me and pointed at the living room where Eddie was. I bit my lip and nodded. I went over to the drawer and grabbed a knife, watching the blade shimmer in the light. I hid the knife in my jacket and headed into the living room. I entered the room to find Eddie and Steven, both watching T.V.
"Hey, There you are Kevin!" Steven says, smiling at me.
"Y-Yeah... Here I am..." I say, quietly as I start to shake. I walked over to the couch where Eddie was sat and sat down next to him. I glanced past Eddie's head to see Aleks, he was watching closely. I gulped and brought the knife out slightly, looking at my reflection in it. I looked at Aleks who was mouthing out the words "Kill him."
I looked down at the knife again then looked at Eddie.
"I...I-I can't do it..." I say to myself, shaking. "But if I don't... A-Aleks is going to torture me..."
I grabbed hold of Eddies shoulders and pushed him down on the couch, I took the knife out of my jacket and lined it up with his Heart.
"Kevin!" Steven shouts.
"K-Kevin... Calm down buddy..." I hear Eddie say from underneath me, he was shaking with fear. I lowered the knife slowly and stopped at about an inch away.
"K-Kevin... T-Think about what your doing..." Steven says, his voice shaking. I looked up to where Aleks was stood, he wasn't there anymore.
I raised my hand with the knife up and closed my eyes before quickly bringing it back down aiming for Eddie's heart.
