“Mr. Diarem would you like me to drive you to the school?” asked Elizabeth
“Maybe next time. Today I need to pick up something from the shop for a school project” said Diarem while putting on his shoes.
“At least take this umbrella with you. I don’t want you getting wet again” said Elizabeth while giving an umbrella to Diarem.
“Ok, I will. Thank you.” Diarem took the umbrella and left.
It was a very cold November compared to the one from last year. Diarem looked at the address on the note. “Cliff street 87” is the address of the shop but Diarem read it wrong and he stood at Cliff street 97. He looked around but he didn’t see any shops on that street. He looked again and he noticed that he read it wrong. The shop that he was supposed to go to was on the other side. He saw an alley between two houses that lead to the street with this shop.
When he walked into the alley he saw 3 men wearing red suits in the middle of the alley by the wall. He decided that he will just pass them because they look like businessmen. Behind Diarem walked a tall, well-built blond man with a white shirt and black vest. His right arm was in bandages. When 3 men saw a blond guy they blocked the path. They didn’t notice Diarem.
“Could you let me through?” asked Diarem.
One man stepped aside, giving him a clear path. When Diarem was passing them one of them shouted and a man with a black vest.
“It’s Red Hats territory get out of here!”
“You’re not my boss.” Said a man in a black vest and threw a fireball at them. One of them blocked it with his fire magic. Another man grabbed Diarem and took him as a hostage.
“You better stop or you will harm a kid.” Said the man and put Diarem in front of him as a shield.
“As if I care.” Said man with a black vest
“WHAT?!” shouted surprised Diarem and started wiggling to escape.
Man in black pulled out a revolver and pointed at the kid. Diarem closed his eyes expecting the worst. Man fired 3 bullets directly pointing at him. In mid-air, bullets change route and hit every man in the leg. Diarem got free.
“Runaway till you can, kid.” Said the man in black still pointing gun his way. Diarem immediately started running away. He was so scared that he passed the shop that he was supposed to pick up materials for a project.
“Oh yeah! Materials! I need to take them fast!” Diarem turned and ran toward a shop where in a hurry he picked up and paid for the materials.
The whole day in school and at home, he was wondering why they grabbed him and who was that “Blondie with black vest”.
