Then We Were All Safe ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My brown hair hid my face, ticking my skin. The sun was setting and there was no moon tonight. There was no one around, this place was empty at night. The breeze blew softly, pushing my hair back from my face, revealing my dark eyes. The wind guided the fallen leaves past me. I bit my tongue and walked on, passing the tall oak tree and not giving a second thought about the graves I walked on, trampling flowers fools left. Fools who decorated graves. The people were dead, get over it. The flowers themselves would die, it's as if graveyards weren't just for humans but for plants as well. I felt a metallic taste in my mouth, gathering all the blood up in one place I spat it out. Glancing back to see where it landed I saw my blood sliding down the side of a tomb stone. I turn my head back to the direction I was walking in and stopped in front of four graves and smiled. Master had ordered me, giving me a mission. Told me death was the only way to protect them.

I entered a room to find him eating dinner. My expression was neutral as I walking towards him, his back was turned towards me. I waited for him to put his glass of water down on the table so there would be no loud sounds alerting anyone of what was happening in this room. Once he placed it back on the table he yawned and looked down at his plate, lifting his hand to pick up the spoon. Now. In one swift movement I moved to his right, lifted the knife and rammed it into his throat. Covering his mouth with my left hand to stifle him if he yelled which he didn't due to the amount of pain he was in. He struggled for a few seconds before falling limp in my arms. Laying him on the floor and pulling the knife out of his neck I looked into his hazel eyes. Placing his arms next to him I kissed his forehead. \"Be safe, Father.\"

I walked into another room. I obviously made noise this time because she looked at me and screamed, she started towards me hurriedly but stopped herself, \"what happened to you?\" I looked down at myself thinking she caught sight of the knife but really she had seen the blood if father that dripped from the knife and coated my hands and clothes which I had yet to notice. Shaking my head I looked up at her, my face remaining neutral. \"Nothing.\" She flinched at how cold my voice sounded, \"nothing? You're covered in blood! Give me that-\" I cut her off by racing forward and jumping on her, falling down with her. She lay on her back with me on too of her and she screamed. Grabbing hold of her short hair to keep her head in place I silenced her by plunging the knife in her chest, sliding it downwards to where her womb should be. Also killing the baby. She choked on her own blood with tears running down her cheeks, she tried to speak but failed and soon fell limp . Pulling the knife out I pulled her belly apart and found the womb not that damaged. So slicing the womb open I grabbed the foetus and sliced the umbilical cord, then I placed it... him next to the woman. Placing her arms next to her sides I kissed her forehead. \"Be safe, Mother. Be safe, Brother.\"

I stood behind a door, the door. It led to her room and I clenched my jaw as I felt my consciousness making itself known and shoved it aside. I've come so far that there was no turning back now. I placed my hand on the cold doorknob and twisted it, opening the door and leaving a stain of scarlet blood on it. I walked in slowly, taking in the smell of powder and lotion. I had left this kill for last, knowing that if I had started with this one then I would never had been able to begin. I made my way towards the wooden cradle with light purple bedding in it. She opened her eyes but I avoided them, not taking in the innocent, baby blue orbs. \"Na-na,\" she gurgled and then giggled. I didn't respond but placed my hand on the blond patch on her head, I quickly withdrew it when I remembered the blood which coated my hand and saw some of Mother's and Father's blood in the baby's hair. She brought her mini hands to her head to try and figure out what the wetness she felt was. \"I promised when you were born that I'd protect you,\" I said out loud, surprising myself. She looked up at me with those glittering eyes and I snapped out of it. Making it fast I grabbed her small head and sliced her neck opened, forming a bright red, wet smile. Blood covered the purple covers once the gurgling had stopped. Still avoiding her open baby blue eyes I layer her down on the now red bed, I kissed her forehead gently and stroked her short hair. \"Be safe, Little Sister.\"

They were safe now, I protected them. We never had any money before but once when I was thirteen and walking on the streets, begging for money when I found Master. He gave me a job to kill the gang members he captured and get rid of any evidence left behind, the people who died deserved it in the end for hurting others. I was also payed a large amount of money because of it but I never told my family how I got it, they would never understand. Then a dangerous gang Father was in once but left after he met Mother demanded a serious amount of money which not even my salary could pay. I knew how this gang worked, I knew they would kill us instantly once the due date for the money had passed and I knew the police could not do anything about it. I told this to Master and he told me how to protect them and I obeyed him, but he didn't know what I was going to do next.

Digging the hilt of my 9 inch knife in between the four graves I took a pair of hand cuffs out of my bag. I brought my hands behind my back and after a few minutes of fiddling succeeded in locking my hands together. Taking my last deep breath I leaned forward. I felt an incredible pain in my abdomen and my eyes flew open, I opened my to try and take in air but was unable to. I lay there gasping for air, unaware that I was shaking. Red blood was oozing out of me and forming a puddle underneath me. I felt light headed and my eyes were unfocused and heavy. I tried to speak though nobody was around to hear me but failed. Then I died. Then we were all safe.
