Papers from hell

"Damon please I beg of you, let me go" she cried he pulled her with his tie which he used to bound her hands.

Damon looked at her his corner of his lips turned up. She shivered within her while She tried to read his eyes but like his conscience, it was all blank.

He left her and walked to the bedside table in the room. Maya felt frightened as she thought of where he went to and what he was going to do with her. When he came back he was holding a scissors.

"I love it when you beg me" he muttered snipping her white dress away, tearing it to pieces till she was completely naked before him because she wore no undergarment. "Beg me, Maya, Beg me!"

Maya gulped.

"Oh being disobedient aren't you?" he poked his tongue in her ear and whispered "I like that too" he digs his fingers into her bum. "Because now, I have every reason to do to you what I've always wanted to do to you. Maya..."


Maya walked into the room, completely tired from work. Worked as a journalist had her head and arms always aching and today was quite eventful. it was a miracle she wasn't slashed by a stray bullet due to the coalition of criminals and the police.

Her sister Anna walked into the sitting room, head high up and elegant. She held herself in style, clothing on airs. Not only that, but Ana also had the love of their parents. They preferred Anna to Maya and didn't even hide it.

Maya always felt unloved by every member of her family, her father, and her mother. Even her other two siblings Anna and Brian treated her like dirt. Her parents were filthy rich, But even then, it wasn't until she began working that she began to buy the things she needed for herself, but even then, there was more money in her siblings' accounts than in hers.

Anna looked at her in disgust, "Maya's father calls for you?"

"Why?" Maya asks on alert, she didn't know her father would call for her, her father didn't even want to see her.

"Well he didn't tell me, but there's dinner, he wants to talk to all of us over dinner"

Maya looked at her suspiciously. She was sure that Anna knew why her father wanted to see her. And the fact that she had been called to dine with the family was even more strange.

"I'll be there in a minute," she said finally

"Just be fast about it," Anna said as she walked away, "there will be a visitor soon and dad wants to be done with the conversation before he comes in" when she was at the exit she added with a mocking tone, "don't forget to take your bath also Maya. You stink,"

As she watched her sister leave, Maya became scared. the last time her father had called her was two years ago when she had slapped Anna because Anna disgraced her in front of a whole crowd. Her father had whipped her till she had passed out. It wasn't an experience she wanted to remember.

But since it was over dinner maybe it wasn't so bad after all. Being the second daughter and child of Alfredo Petra, had her always on her defensive.

She got into the bathroom and took a quick shower. She wore a light gown and because she didn't wear a bra, her n*ppl*s were very visible against it.

Maya strolled to the dining room where her family already sat around the table. She stood beside an empty seat waiting for him to scream at her. She wondered what she'd done this time. As far as she knew she was successful in avoiding him and staying clear of his part. She guessed that wasn't enough.

"Sit down Maya, let's have dinner," her father said softly. She looked up at him sharply. Did he just use that soft tone on her? She couldn't believe it. Was she dreaming?

Still standing and wondering if she heard well, her mother repeated, "Take your seat, child. Your food might get cold"

Her bone stiffened. But she did sit down and her food was served to her by a maid. The seat opposite her was empty. Her father sat at the head of the table, while Anna who was opposite their mother and still eying her up and down was close to their father holding his hand.

Maya noticed that the old man looked frail and sick. He also looked worried.

When they began eating, Maya watched them unsure of what to do. She wasn't comfortable within her own family and it showed.

"Why don't you eat your food, Maya?" Her mother asked her.

"Maybe she thinks we poisoned it," Anna said spitefully

"No No" she quickly said, "I don't think it was poisoned. I'll never think that mother"

"Then eat your food"

She quickly began pilling the food in her mouth. Not really tasting anything.

Her father cleared his throat "I know you're wondering why I called for you" he paused, "I want to know if you can make a sacrifice for your family"

She was confused"I don't understand father"

He looked angry at her so she quickly added so he wouldn't hurt her like he always did, "yes I can, father. I can make a sacrifice for my family"

"No matter how big?"

Maya wasn't comfortable where all of this was going but still, she answered, "no matter how big father.

He nodded then from a briefcase which was at his side he brought out a paper and handed her a pen, "sign this" and he gave her the paper.

This time she had to ask, "what is this?"

"This will be the proof of your love for your family," he broke eye contact with her and looked out of the window before he began to explain, "Anna found the reports on Cosa Nostra you've been working on"

Her heart beat loudly against her chest. The project on the Nostra dome was a personal one, It wasn't supposed to be seen by anybody. What had Anna been doing in her room to bump into the papers it had been on? Maya hoped nobody else had found out

"And she sent it to the police for a small bounty"

She gasped. She was shattered. No matter how much her sister treated her, she wouldn't wish her that was coming for her, she looked at her father, weren't they making a big mistake keeping her here instead of hiding her somewhere far away from all of the danger that was sure to come?

"Luckily the Don had an insider who got the papers, so it's in safe hands. But the Don..." His breath was shaky "wants something in return if we want to keep our lives

"What's that father?" She asked. As far as she knew, she was all ready to do anything to help her family. If she wanted her to go to the public to tell them everything she wrote on that paper was a lie. Maybe with that, she could even earn the love of her parents "what do I have to do father?"

He gazed at her then said, "in place of your Sister, you have to agree with whatever Don Damon says"

The shock stuck in her throat

Devil's Incarnate

As her father glares at her, his icy green pupils she had inherited from him, watching her every change of mood, Maya knew she had to be careful with her words.

"I I'm sorry father but I wish this would be explained to me more clearly,"

Before she could finish, he slammed his hand on the table, making he jump in fear. "What do you want to understand again, you good for nothing..."

"Alfredo, !" Her mum runs to his side and hugs him, "it's not your fault you have such a selfish daughter!"

Maya swallowed, her heart thudding wildly against her chest. For a moment she thought her father was going to hit her.

Her mother settled Alfredo on his seat and rubbed his shoulder. Then she looked at her in disgust. Maya lowered her eyes to the table. Her mum ordered angrily, "Guardami!"

Maya raised her eyes to her mother's brown orbs, the hate in the woman's eyes was deep. She held no affectio
