I coudn't belive the person standing in front of me was the one whom I had know almost half of my life. I rubbed my eyes and blinked twice to confirm my suspicions.
She chuckled at my reaction, taking my hand in hers and squeezing it, her beautiful innocent smile reminding me of her real quiet side.
"How are you, Mrs Emily Jones! Well. Well! Who would've thought you two would get together so early. I always thought I would have to beat Edwrad to knock some real sense into his puddle mind that how much you love muhhh-" I covered her mouth instantly, my eyes wandering around the room to make sure nobody heard it.
"Oh my god! I can't belive you are Rose! Is it really you, Rose!" I yelled, my hands touching her black jacket and a hoodie to confirm.
"Yeah yeah!! it's me. Totally me. Infact, how about I show you my identity card! Or visa? Or anything else, Sir Emily!"
I smacked her playfully, "You've changed a lot. Totally! You didn't speak a word before and see you now speaking like a parrot!"
She waved her fingers in air.
"Well well!! The air of New York changes the mind of a pious person offering them a talking tongue in discount! So, how's you doing! Where is that dear husband of yours!" Her eyes wandered a little to find Edward when she winced a little and put her hands over her stomach.
"Rose! Rose! Are you okay!?"
She placed her hands on my shoulder "I'm fine, it's your fucking bodyguard, and his fucking hard leathery legs! He sure kicks like a damn **** of a man!"
"Oh my Jesus! Did he hurt you, Rose? Are you okay? Should we go to the hospital!?"
"No way! I'm fine! On the contrary, I must ask you to take him to the hospital cause we fought hard on your garden, while I kicked and punched him on his stomach. I ended up planting him in the mud before climbing the floors of your house so he must be kinda stuck there as I remember.... kicking his face after stuffing his ass in stoamach! Such a weak duckling he is!"
Just then, heavy footsteps hurried to the stairs, opening the door in a haste.
Micheal stood there, holding his earpiece in his ears, commanding something. "Be alert, everybody! Burglar invaded the area! I want everybody report to me, in the house, right now!"
He clicked his watch, a loud beep coming, and when he turned towards us, my eyes widened, a loud gasp escaped my mouth before I could prevent it. His young handsome face was swollen from the side, a clear mark of a heavy punch on his left hand cheek which was turning blue, his brown hairs all disheveled and his movements seemed tired and restricted.
He looked at me, "Mrs Jones, I'm afraid your safety is endangered-"
Rose turned around to face him, crossing her arms across her chest cooly.
Michael's eyes widened in shock, surprise and horror before he raised his index finger at her like a five year old pointing at the thief who stole his candy.
"You! How dare of you to come here! Mrs Emily stay away from her!"
Immediately, he gripped her gun from his side and pointed the metallic barrel at her.
"Don't move otherwise I'll shoot! Here everyone. She is in here.!!Yes yes.. In Sir's bedroom!" He yelled in her earpiece, glaring daggers at Rose.
Quickly I tried to speak out the misunderstanding when Rose waved her hand at me to tell me she was okay while Michael took it as a danger sign and with a clear "plick" removed the safety from his gun.
Rose remained cool and composed, her arms still across her chest, a beautiful smile adorning her features. She took one step, staring continously at Michael, then took another, then another, as if daring Micheal to shoot who stood there, looking at her as if he coudn't belive his eyes that a girl was challenging him..
It was too late when he flinched to realise that his gun was pointing at her chest now which he hurriedly pointed at her face to protect the remnant of his male dignity. Rose raised her hand, Michael's fingers around the trigger tightened and my head snaked around the room to get a closer view of their encounter.
"Well well. Scared are we!?" Micheal exclaimed with smugness, his gun now pointing at her neck, making Rose to tilt her head backward in air.
I was holding my breath all this time which came out as a squeal when Rose, to all our surprises, raised her arms to wrap them around Michael's neck and leaned towards him just as I leaned my head towards them to peek further.
His grip on his gun loosened a little as Rose leaned more to whisper something on his ear, his cheeks turning a shade darker at her words and I just gaped at the scene in front of me when Rose titled her head to kiss him lightly on his cheeks, this time his grip on his gun tightened and he once again pointed the barrel at her face.
But he stopped midway when a similar weapon was pointed at the back of his head, digging into his hairs. My hands flew to my face to whisper a small "oh" seeing her holding the gun of her own.
How the hell did she own a gun!?
"Don't move!" Rose pointed her gun on his head, holding it casually as if she had all the experience of the world while Michael raised his gun once again at her.
Both glared at each other for a long time before Rose took three steps back, still staring at him and tilting her hand to drop her gun which fell on the carpet with a soft thud just as Michael pressed the trigger and I looked at him in absolute horror.
But nothing came. Just a sound of a soft side.
"Safety's on again dear, I hope you don't mind much!" Rose smiled deviously at him.
"No problem at all!" Michael yelled, smirking with smugness and turned off the safety again with his deft hands and once again raised a gun at her. Rose remained unaffected, still smiling at him.
"Scared much, are we again now !?" Micheal mocked her and I wondered if he always had that quirky attitude within him.
Rose waved her hand. "Nah! Infact, I must tell you I have been feeling quite uncomfortable lately... In these clothes!" Her hands trailed over her black jacket, hoodie, waist, and to her black jeans before she raised her jacket, exposing her toned stomach, and her fingers gripped her jeans button and with a single pull, button popped open and Micheal's eyes widened.
What the hell was she doing!? Giving all of us a strip tease!?
To my absolute horror, she pulled down the zip of her jeans down and started to tug at her waistband, raising one of her eyebrows at Micheal, perhaps to challenge him and with a fast movement pulled the jeans down. My hands flew to my mouth just as Micheal's hands flew to his pious eyes to protect himself from seeing illegal things, his gun now dangling loose in his fingers.
Her long legs came in view and I realised, in all my innocence that she was actually wearing shorts. Thank God otherwise I would have squeezed her brains out to massage people's shit!
My relief didn't last long as her fingers now danced over her jacket and, going way up the zipper again, pulling it down slowly and slowly, gauging Micheal's eye in an inevitable game.
"Rose, what the hell are you doing?!" I hissed at her, earning no response from her. Instead, she continued pulling the zipper down and removed the jacket from her arms deftly, throwing it across some corner of the room. I attempted to stop her but she raised her hand to stop me and I felt soft thud followed by someone's slow steps.
I turned my head to see Micheal gaping at Rose, his eyes widening like sky, his gun long forgotten on the carpet, his legs retreating slowly by slowly away from her, until his back hit the stony cold wall, flinching a little.
I looked at Rose who was wearing crop top, dangling loose below her chest, her black lacy bra visible even to blinds and her shorts, too short to be called innocent ones didn't do well to hide her volumptous body.
"Rose, what the-"
"Scared, are we not, sweety?!?" Rose said, walking towards Michael, tilting her body a little to his view and my face was hot, heat rising to my face seeing what she was doing in my own bedroom.
"Won't you shoot me now, dear!?"
Her cruel sharp words brought Michael out of his wild reveries. Immediately he lurched forward, bending on the ground a little to pick up his gun when Rose ducked her two arms behind her back and pulled out two guns, shining in the dim light and pointed at Michael, motioning him to stand up.
He glared at her, standing up.
"Raise your hands!" Rose yelled.
Are we suddenly shooting a crime and thriller drama now!?
Why!? It was a romantic drama just a minute ago and I was having so much fun!!
Micheal hesitated a little, furrowing his eyebrows at her before raising his hands up slowly in air. "Are you daring to threaten me-"
His words stopped mid in air as a bullet passed past his head and hit the vase behind him, destroying it to pieces. My eardrums rang like hell to the sound of explosion and destruction.
What the hell just happened? Did she shoot? Really!?
"I don't do something as cheap as threatning!", she ran her fingers once more along the trigger, "I like to take things on my hands instead!"
Micheal stayed still, at his place, hands raise in air and I saw a thin streak of sweat trickle down his forehead before he gulped in disguised male fear.
Whoa! That is cool! I'll try this sometime on Edward or Jake. Or Mia.
But never on Rose!
But Edward never lets me have his gun. He scolded me saying I would play game of police, detective or spy in the house and might end up killing someone.
I heard a hurried footsteps on stairs before I saw very tired, very much in haste, very much concerned Edward on the door, panting slightly from his fast running.
"Emi, I heard someone invaded the house! Are you okay? Ar-"
He didn't get to complete the sentence as Rose pointed one of the two guns at him, while still pointing the other at Michael, who was cowering away in fear.
"Rose!" Edward took one step forward, his eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
"Rose, when did you come!?"
"Don't move from your place!" Rose yelled.
Immediately she turned around a little to look at me while still pointing guns at both of them.
What was she doing, my god!?
"Tell me how this jerk treats you!?"
"Tell me how much he takes care of you, Emily!"
I stood stunned by her question, looking at her as if she had gone mad.
"Tell me otherwise I'll shoot him right now!"
