The Gangster

Here I stood, on my brother’s grave watching the gravestone with sadness. But there was a feeling that overpowered this sadness and it was anger. Yes anger, but this anger was not for my dear brother who threw himself in front of my death. This anger was for the person who killed him, the person who has made me what I am today.

But who was I, Derek Colin, Samuel Michelson, Daniel Goren or Blake Salvy? Well none of these is my real name. I don’t even remember what name my parents gave me. Years passed by, dozens of names changed, travelled to almost all parts of the world but destiny plays its game. It has brought me back at the place where I never wanted to come, forced me to stay here and burn in the rage inside me. I can’t handle it anymore, can’t look at this grave and think about my brother anymore.

“Hello Mr. Razen Belikov,”said the hotel manager. I must remember that everyone here knows me as Razen Belikov, the foreign entrepreneur.

“Hello,” I replied and faked a smile. He escorted me to the most luxurious room and left me there alone.

Nobody here really knows what I am and if I tell them they’ll all run away. Yes I was no ordinary 23 year old man, I am a gangster. But how did I become one? How did my life take such a big turn, from a normal teenager to the world’s most dangerous gangster?

All of this started on 31st December 2008, I can never forget this date, the day when I lost everything. I and my brother was coming out of The Devil’s Home club, talking to each other about how good life was going on and just about then, they came and surrounded us. I still remember, there were five of them. Two men were tall and muscular and the latter were equal to me and my brother. One of the taller men who had big scar on his face seemed to be the leader.

“Hello Damon,” said the tall man. How did he know my brother’s name?

“What are you doing here Adele?” said my brother angrily. He knew him? I was confused, what was happening here? How did my brother know these gangsters?

“You haven’t paid for the last delivery. So, I’m here to collect it myself,” he said.

“I will pay, okay. I’m not running anywhere.”

“Of course you aren’t running. You cannot run from me but I have come to know that someone has been betraying us and is leaking all the information to the cops.” What is happening here? I don’t understand a thing. Last delivery, cops?

That tall guy Adele looked at me with angry eyes and commanded his man, “Get the boy.”

“No,” screamed Damon while coming in front of me.

“Leave him alone,” he said angrily.

“You betrayed me, so you have to pay the cost,” he remarked.

“Kill the boy,” he commanded to his men. The other tall man took out his gun and pointed it at me. My brother pushed me on the other side of the road and said, “Run.”

So, I did what he asked me to do. I ran and came to a stop when I heard a loud noise BANG. No, he shot my brother. I have to go back but I can’t fight them. What should I do? I hadn’t run for long so I could still hear him when he said, “Look for the boy and kill him.”

They are coming after me so I should run. I ran and ran and then hid behind the car. Those men ran ahead looking for me. In the meantime, the door of the car opened and a man came out.

“Hey boy, what are you doing?”

“I’m hiding from them. They killed my brother and want to kill me.” I said with anger dripping from my mouth.

“You want revenge?”

“Yes.”

“Then get in the car.” That was the turning point in my life. The stranger, who made me what I am today. I still don’t know his name but he has helped me to take revenge. He taught me how to shoot, how to strangle and how to kill and when I was ready, I went back to kill them.

I found them enjoying in the beer bar where I pulled out my gun and killed all of them. But now I couldn’t get back to my normal life. So, I joined the gang. I have killed many people, drug dealers, smugglers, murderers.

 But I don’t know why, even after killing them, I am not satisfied. I can’t think about it anymore. So, I left my room and went to Room No. 346 where the stranger was waiting for me.

“Hello boy.”

“Hello sir.”

“You look sad. I thought coming back in this town would make you happy.”

“It doesn’t make me happy.”

“Why? It is the place where you killed your brother’s murderer.”

“I didn’t kill my brother’s murderer then, but now I will.”

“I don’t understand.” I pulled out the gun and shot him in the head.

“Good- bye.” Yes, he was the one who ordered Adele to kill my brother. My brother worked for the cops. So, I went to them to know the truth and they told me about Adele’s boss. I have stayed with him for three years waiting for the day when I could kill him and now I finally did. I feel content as my REVENGE is over.
