Life After Lies - Chapter 10Life After Lies
I expected him to unleash his rage through a burst of unchecked violence, like kicking something or throwing a punch at the wall, but no.
The next thing he did was much, much worse.
Inhaling deeply, Johnathon Rhodes turned his head toward my boss, indescribable rage burning within his bloodshot eyes. Slowly, he exhales, and uttered two simple words that made everything come crashing down.
I walked down the cold, dark hallway, the walls on either side of me lined with cell doors. Each step sent tremors up my spine, and everything around me seemed unreal, like I was trapped in some sort of sick fantasy. It was almost if my mind was rejecting reality, refusing to believe that I'd just heard that...asshole order Noah's death. Emotions raged violently in my stomach in an uncontrolable tornado that did nothing to calm my frantically pulsating heart.
For a small, fleeting m

"Did you get any sleep whatsoever before coming here?" he asked as I wrapped more bandages around his torso.
"Yes," I replied tonelessly.
Noah's eyes narrowed as we locked gazes.
I rolled my eyes.
"So? Why would it matter" The sound of my PDA ringing in my pocket cut me off. I sighed in exasperation as I pulled it out, noting that the little digital clock in the top right corner read seven AM.
It was a message from Rhodes again. I scowled. As if I wanted to hear from him.
There will be a meeting to discuss yesterday's event at three. Be there. -J.R."
When it came to meetings like this one, I'm usually able to keep my composure. It was never too difficult to retain a straight face in these kinds of situations. Even when it came down to Rhode

No one talks to her when she arrives. Instead, they all avert their eyes, mumbling amongst themselves as she passes. No laughter. No comments about how she deserved everything she got on that forsaken island. No point in telling someone something that they already know.
She can feel their stares on her back, and she knows that their eyes are all dulled with a silent, burning hatred. It doesn't bother her or make her angry, although she knows it should. In any other case, she would direct some biting comment at them, but there is a certain numbness that restrains her from doing anything at all.
She receives her key and walks stiffly to her room, not bothering to slam the door shut in some immature tantrum. She does not take any comfort in the fact that her new temporary living quarters are clean, free of mosquitoes, and actually kind of nice. She just lets her bag fall to the carpeted floor, slips off her shoes, and curls up on her bed, creating

I stopped, holding the door open and deliberately not making eye contact.
"Yeah?" I replied softly.
I swallowed hard, trying to keep my composure.
"Your welcome. Noah?"
Hopefully, he didn't hear the crack in my voice.
"Don't forget to breathe."
I heard him give a bitter chuckle.
I let the door click shut.
Uncertainty clouded my head as I stepped into my car the next night. I really wasn't supposed to be doing this, and I didn't even want to think about what would happen to me if I was caught.

"You've got to be kidding me. This is all one big, fat bluff, at least when it comes to taking his life. I know you, John. You were always a spineless coward, unwilling to actually make the big decisions"
“"You think so!? Come back the day after tomorrow and I will show you how much of a coward I am! Same time!" With that, he slammed the computer screen shut.

I would warn him. I would tell him everything I knew about this situation. It wouldn't save him from any physical abuse, but it would at least shine a little light on exactly what was going on.
It wasn't much, but it would have to do.
Setting him free and taking the heat for it later did cross my mind at one point or another during my walk to his cell (which seemed to last forever), but I quickly dismissed it as way too risky. Secur

"Y'know, you look awfully familiar," commented the Panda Express worker as she prepared my order a little later. "Like I've seen you on TV or something." I let the corner of my lip turn upward slightly as I pulled out a few bills to pay her.
"Yeah, I get that a lot."
I would never forget the events of the next day for the rest of my life.
My breakfast had been sacrificed to Noah that morning, leaving my stomach painfully empty. It wasn't too unbearable, and he needed it more than I did, anyway.
So I wandered the streets of downtown for a while, hunting for a decent coffee joint where I could load myself up with caffeine. Rain still beat down upon the ever-busy city, and all seemed cloaked in a dull gray haze. It was hard to focus on the weather, though. Traffic was a mess, and I was kind of glad I'd decided to brave the rain and walk around that day. Sirens and car horns blared obnox
