"You'll never change...well,I hope you like spicy food,since it's a family tradition in the Mamoons and Kirisans circles to eat spicy food..." she grinned,reffering to her husband's and her own family food tastes,which had always the motto "Spicy for the win." .
"Good question. A lot of people vouldn't think that far ahead. But if the rival or politician hired a proffessional assassin then it vouldn't be too farfetched. Or maybe it was because the killer vas unsure of vhen they vould all be at home at the same time and so settled for killing them as they got home. Or maybe...they didn't die at home at all. The bodies vere found a few hours later. Plenty of time to off them and then take their bodies to the so-called scene of the crime to throw off the scent."
"Professionals always take pride in their work, but another possibility cannot be ignored. They can have been used as a sacrifice for a cults ritual, or maybe they knew too much and needed to be silenced? Another possibility is...possession, actually. But I don't think a demon vould be involved. More like an angry spirit...vhich makes things even more complicated."
"And very smart for that century."Christina observed.Her cellphone ringed. "Hey mom!"
"Hey Silvia!" "I couldn't pass by to the library,the librarian was at Steph nee-chan's funeral so could you..."
"...bring an anatomy book?Took it before you child.And I also might bring a surprise home too." "Thanks mommy and what's the surprise ?!!"
"Remember who used to stay whit you few years ago when I was way to busy whit work?" "Jason comes to dinner?!"
"Maybe.That unless he picks fast-food over spicy lasagna." "Yay!Than I should find some cute dress...
"Try the new blue one.And make sure we have tomatoes in the fridge." "'Kay mom!Love ya!I will close now,Jess is on the other line."
"Kay kiddo.Take care." "Bet on that!"
"Than let's get going.But expect her to jump over you,so prepare your head for a hit.And goodbye,miss Beaumont." she waved to the leaving girl.Putting on her black shades,she added "Be sure to respect the speed limits." as she started to walk outside,towards her car.
As they got to be just them two,Christiana catched both of his shoulders and looked directly into his eyes."You have my word that I will catch and atleast imprison for life Steph's killer.And that's a promise!" she stated,smiling as she finished saying."Now,let's get going,or Steph will worry." she added as she got into her car.
Kyuu enters the library, she looks around, taking a mental note of who is in the library, habits die hard, she guess. But then again, with a library this empty, she should be safe from others, this library looks old and has seen better days. It used to be her hiding place from her parents, like when she did something wrong and wanted to avoid been scolded by them. She would choose to run all the way and enter where she can get lost within all the books in the library. To Kyuu, reading was going on an adventure without doing it physically.
And at the end of the day when the sun sets, her parents would come and pick her up and says "Let's go home honey". Come to think of it, her parents seems to know the library was her favourite hiding place in town, she smiled.
Shaking her head, she chased away the memories she shared with her parents. With a slient prayer muttered, she walks towards the town history section of the library, she needs to look for what she needs. Time to be focus.
With the books she needed in hands, she walkes towards the self-checkout counter, thank goodness this is available in this town, she would hate to face anyone at all within this library. But today is her lucky day she guess, since it was empty since the moment she steps in.
Taking note of the due date, she swiftly exits the library and disapears into the background like she had never existed in the first place.
