Diluted Bullet (Weeping Love) Episode 24


I launched another attack but was surprised to find myself falling down , if not for the closeness of her bed , I might have hit my head on the floor. What she did still remained a mystery to me , because it was too swift to see anything. All I knew was that, as I was about to hit her, she bent down and her leg performed the trick, and I lost balance.

I quickly did a Chinese get up and made to attack again, but she swiftly ran to the wall and shocked me again. She swiftly ran on the wall and when she got to the middle , she performed double back flip and landed on my shoulder, her leg coiled round my hand to bar it from doing anything, I lost balance and fell down.

She quickly got hold of my right hand, her right leg on my head and her left leg on my rib, she used it to apply force and pulled my right hand towards her. I quickly used my left hand to hit the floor repeatedly to show that I’ve given up. I heaved a sigh of relief , holding my right hand as she released me. The pain from the submission attack was too much for me to bear or endure .

” you see , you’re not strong enough for the future and this exactly what you did wrong ” she said to me before she head to her bed and slept off, while I wringled in pain on the floor.


” let’s talk kiddo ” Goat said to me as I entered his room the next day, with a tone that depicted that all isn’t well.

” hope I’m safe ” I asked sitting down beside him.

” yeah, but that’s if you wish to be ” he said to me scaring me more. ” the contest for the last five Is coming up next week ” he added with a sad countenance.

” then I think I’m safe because I think I’m strong enough for it ” I said with a tone connoting confidence. Goat had already took me through the process of the contest. It’s a last man standing between all the ten contestants. Two trainees will be paired and one must kill the other

” but why do you look sad about it ” I asked Goat when a thought suddenly scraped through my mind.

” the board had done the pairing for the contest and you’ve been paired to face P2 ” he said with a sad countenance. I stared at Goat with my mouth widely opened , I couldn’t believe my ear,

” is he playing prank on me ” I asked myself repeatedly. I pinched myself to be sure I wasn’t dreaming or in any sort of trance.

” I spied on the training session of P2 and Bull eye yesterday and I knew you’ve to work very hard in order to be able to defeat that girl ” he added staring at me. But I didn’t say anything. I was just blank, I felt my soul bidding me bye, the world was against me and the earth seemed to be tired of my existence .

” I can’t fight her ” I suddenly screamed. ” she’s my life , the reason I’m still here today ” I added weeping.

” Kiddo, looks like you’ve not been paying attention to my teachings, what did I told you about love ” he asked me clamping my head in between his two palms. ” what did I told you about love ” he suddenly screamed at me when I didn’t answer.

” it’s a shit that make people vulnerable ” I answered him with a teary voice, but ”

” no but ” he said boycotting my word. ” you’re not in love, and you’re going to kill her, tho it might be hard but you’re doing it, so get yourself ready ” he said with a tone of finality. ” now get your ass into the training room, no more playing and resting is now prohibited ” he screamed at me as he pulled me up . I walked sluggishly into the training room as I felt empty.

I’ll rather die than kill Precious, I love her so much and I don’t care if she doesn’t love me. She’s my life and I knew I can’t get anywhere by killing her . I’m going to lose myself if such happen.

The remaining days before the contest became a horror to me. The day became fast and my mind became slow. Happiness became an alien to me. Goat gave up on me two days to the contest when I refused to train. I spent the remaining two days in my room brooding. Since the day of the announcement, I haven’t set my eye on Precious, I knew she’s preparing hard to kill me and I don’t f—–g care , as long as she live.

I slept late the day before the contest expecting , no, wishing that Precious to sleep in. I only wish to see her for the last time before I die. But I slept off late while expecting her. I had a dream that night , tho it felt real more than a dream that Precious came in and slept beside me, caressing my hair, weeping as she also play her hand on my face. She pecked my cheek before she departed. I woke up feeling a bit refreshed with the dream I had.

” all trainee should report to the challenge room right now ” a voice shouted on a speaker which I’ve never heard before. I was about to stretch when the speaker sounded. So I just took my mask and head out. The challenge room has been decorated to look like a ring. A high seat filled with people who looked influential with masks on their face could be vividly seen . I saw my colleagues standing at a spot with a small basket in front of them. I stood beside them and I was sure the person next to me was Precious.

The spectators seat were brimmed with people wearing mask and it circled the ring. All my colleagues except me all looked prepared for the contest, especially precious.

” I love you kiddo ” I suddenly heard someone who walked passed me say it with a sad countenance. I looked at the person and saw that it was Goat.

He joined the remaining mentors in the part segmented for them. Miss bull eye as usual was looking hot but was glaring at me. Our eye met occasionally and I swiftly looked away.

” all the trainees should take off their masks and drop it inside the basket in front of them ” the voice came from the speaker inside the room and we all obeyed it. I looked totally unkempt unlike others.

” K1 and D1 should both step inside the ring ” the speaker blared out in an ordering tone and two of my colleagues walked into the ring. I didn’t notice the single knife inside the ring until the speaker said something about it. The knife was tied to a rope dropping from above. It was kind of high to get it, but with the right skill, it isn’t impossible to get it down.

The rules of the contest was stated clearly from the speaker as we all listened. And gunshot was heard to signal the starting of the fight as there was no referee in the ring to control the match. It was a bloody match between K1 and D1, but D1 was the first to get to the knife by propelling herself from the buckle of the ring and performed triple steps frontflip to get the knife down and stabbed K1 on his chest.

Blood flowed ceaselessly from the chest of K1 and the spectators took to their feets to applaud D1. The ring was swiftly prepared and cleaned for the second contest. The first match ended with a girl defeating a boy. There was a total of six boys and four girls. Precious and I were the last to be called upon as there was already two boys and girls who were lucky to find themselves among the living.

And only one procured no wound , simply implying that she’s already through to be a field agent. I smiled awkwardly as I entered the ring. I was surprised to see Precious also smiling at me. She had sadness hidden behind her smile but I couldn’t detect it then. I thought she’s smiling because she already knew she’s going to defeat me easily like she already did a week ago. When the gunshot was heard, she swiftly moved closer to me and trapped my head in between her right elbow.

” go down without a fight and your spirit will watch me swear at your name for eternity ” she swiftly said to me before she released my head. Hearing her say this resurrected some unknown forces and hidden energy inside me.

” granting her final wish before dying ain’t a bad thing ” I assured myself as I attacked her with great adrenaline surging through my vein. I was sure my fight with Precious was the most interesting contest of the day as we fought like an arch enemy. I found myself performing skills I didn’t know I knew. She was also great , more better than I was . I could see Goat on his feet as he tried to jeer me up silently. I knew he was surprised at what he was witnessing. It was more than his expectations.

After forty minutes of a hardcore fight, I noticed that I’ve gotten weaker and I was sure Precious must have noticed it as she was also going slower on me. I fell down after some minutes and I saw as she propelled herself upward with the mixture of different skills to get the knife. But the knife fell from her hand as she got hold of it from the rope. I thought it was a mistake. It fell right in front of me and I picked it as I stood up. She stood in front of me off guard. I smiled as tears dropped off my eye as I slowly raised the knife towards her.

” I love you ” I silently muttered as I made motion to stab myself , but she swiftly got to me, didn’t know how she did it but the handle of the knife was showing from her stomach. She hugged me to support herself from falling as blood gushed out from her stomach. I slowly brought her down as she laid on my leg. I screamed in pain as I watched blood spilled from her mouth. She shakily placed her bloodied hand on my cheek as she tried hard to smile.

” I love you Junior and will always do even in afterlife ” she said to me in a shaky voice as tears tripped down from her eye.

” I love you too ” I muttered to her weeping profusely as I tried to pull the knife from her stomach.

” you must become the best and must not make my sacrifice go in vain ” she said squinching in pain.

” nothing is going to happen to you, you’re going ” I couldn’t complete my words when I discovered that she wasn’t breathing again. ” nooooo ” I screamed before I collapsed beside her.
