THE DEAL.

* * * *

MAX POV:
       "....what's the deal??" He grunts, sitting down right next to me.

    Brother looks down, fiddling with his finger's, not saying anything at first.

    He sighs, looking up at the board. He then slowly turns to look at me, which gives me the chill's.

       "You know. Don't you?" He say's, keeping eye-contact.

    Gulping, I nod.

    "I know there's someone in the basement," Looking at the board, staring at the girls picture.

    "....is she down there, right now....?" I ask, not really wanting to know the answer. But, it had to be asked.

       He starts to breath heavily, shrugging.

    I see his eyes 'flinch'? A little, showing that he was smiling.

    My heart feels like it's about to drop,

       "No way. No way! She's down there, isn't she?! SHE'S DOWN THERE-"

    "Quiet." Immediately, I shut my mouth.

       He sighs, getting up.

    "She's down there." Right then and there, my heart drops, my body, going pale.

    He seems amused, by my reaction.

Shaking my head, I say

    "I-I'm calling the police!! I'm-"

    "She's probably already dead, though. By starvation." He say's, not fazed that I literally threatened on calling the cop's on him.

This feeling that I feel right now, is making me nauseous.

    Now knowing that the missing girl I've been looking for, this whole time, has been in my brothers basement.

    And I was never aware of it.

"Well! Sense you already know about the girl, I might as well just end you here, right now. So you won't end up in my way-"

     "NO! PLEASE-"

    "Let. Me. Finish. Talking." Shutting my mouth, I nod.

"Thank you. Anyways, OR! I can let you live. IF! You decide to go with an option that I have for you."

    The deal he was talking about to me, couple of minutes ago.

       "Okay. Okay, what is it?" He starts to breath heavily, getting me more nervous.

    "It's either your own life, or hers."
