I walked back into the main hall, the others trailing angrily behind me, except for Yoongi who had a relieved expression on his face. I noticed the others glaring at him out of the corners of their eyes, mentally cursing him out for putting us in this situation. After the last incident we vowed to NEVER make this mistake again... They promised me... They promised my family...
I squeezed my eyes shut, trying to prevent the tears from escaping as I thought about my sister laying dead on the floor, blood pooling around her. All because we felt bad and let someone in- because we trusted a stranger. And we were doing the exact same thing tonight.
I tried not to think about her killer running out the window before we could catch him. Or about the note he left beside her body:
Who knew your sister would be so good for a virgin? - Ryan
I've wanted to hunt him down, to get revenge on Purge Night, but the boys always talk me out of it.
I'm sure as hell not about to lose someone else because of some fucking strangers that can't protect themselves. Those two girls have to go.
I've noticed the side-eye the others are giving me, but I don't care. I'm sick of letting innocent people die because we're too afraid to trust strangers. It's not what Hoseok's sister would have wanted. And when I saw the two girls on the screen, I saw a little bit of his sister in them, they reminded me of her- I couldn't just let them die.
We entered the hall, all immediately shocked to see Jimin shirtless and kneeling over one of the girls. I chuckled to myself and the others looked over unamused.
"Jiminie what are you doing?!?" Jin asked confused.
I watched as Jimin stood up embarrassed, motioning towards the younger girl to show his shirt was preventing the bleeding.
Throughout the room you could hear sighs and people cursing under their breath. All eyes fell on Namjoon, who we'd previously agreed would be asking the questions.
He sighed and walked over to the girls, kneeling down in front of them.
I looked the girls over. They didn't look dangerous. In fact, they looked scared shitless. I hated that I had to do this, but it needed to be done.
"Who the fuck are you?" I growled.
"I'm Ravs and this is Kylie..." The older girl started off. "I already told Jimin everything. We aren't gonna cause any trouble. Please just let us stay-" She began.
"Shut the hell up." I cut her off. Her mouth stayed open as she looked over to Jimin.
"Hyung stop!" The boy spat at me. "They've told me everything. We can trust them."
"How the fuck do you know that?!?" I asked, unable to believe that he could be so trusting on tonight of all nights.
"Because Ryan was the one that attacked them." He said and the room fell quiet. I heard Hoseok whimper out a "holy fuck."
"Yeah but are you sure it's THAT Ryan..?" Taehyung asked in disbelief.
"The description matches perfectly. Except now he's got goons with him." Jimin stated.
"Hold the FUCK up! You guys get to poke and prod us but you can't tell us what the hell you want with Ryan?!?" Ravs blurted out annoyed.
"Fine..." I sighed our annoyed. We just saved their lives and the girl was already sassing us. "Ok sweetheart, let's just say you aren't he first girls Ryan's put his filthy hands on... And one of them happened to be a sister of one of ours." She went silent.
"Is she still alive...?" Kylie asked quietly.
"No. My sister is dead." Hoseok started from the corner of the room. "Now take me to that bastard."
"Trust me... I would love to... But I don't think I'm going anywhere anytime soon." Kylie softly chuckled out while motioning towards her stab wounds.
"She's got a point." I stated. "I guess we'll spilt up. Hoseok, Yoongi, Jin, and myself: we'll take Ravs and hunt down Ryan. Jungkook, Taehyung, and Jimin: you stay here with Kylie and protect the house."
"Ravs... Are you sure about this...?" Kylie asked, afraid to be abandoned by her friend- especially on such a dangerous mission.
"We'll be fine. We can trust them. Besides, I'm gonna show that asshole what happens when he messes with us." Ravs said smiling lightly.
I headed towards the door, my group following along. "Stay safe." I said over my shoulder as we stepped into the dark night.
We stepped outside, the cold air hitting us instantly and sending chills down my spine.
"Fuck." I heard Ravs muttered. Looking over at her I saw her hugging herself for warmth. We had completely ignored the fact that her clothing was torn and ripped. I saw Yoongi sigh before taking off his jacket and holding it out for her. She took it and immediately put it on.
"Which way did you come from?" I asked, wanting to get off the streets where we would be vulnerable.
"The left." She said, walking towards the front in an attempt to lead the group.
"Nice try... But I'm pretty sure Kylie will kill us if we let you die out here... You stick in the middle with Yoongi and don't do anything stupid." I said, pushing the girl back.
"Oh don't even. I am more than capable of taking care of myself." She started- her similarity to Jungkook was frightening.
"Honey, I deal with a stubborn maknae everyday... This isn't gonna work on me. Now do what I say." I snapped back. She huffed and began to take her place in line when a boom erupted from behind us and the glass windows of the grocery store next to us shattered.
"What the hell was that?" Hoseok asked.
"Everybody inside now!" I yelled, herding the group into the store. "We're being shot at!"
"So...." I sighed out, trying to break the awkward tension. Jimin and I had helped move Kylie to the couch in the living room while Jungkook had stared terrified at the presence of a girl. Now, we were all siting on the couch quietly.
"Is there any way I could get some water...?" Kylie asked, her voice raspy and her throat dry.
"Of.. Of course." Jungkook said, standing up and heading towards the kitchen.
"Sorry about him." I said smiling over at the girl. Within the last few minutes the color had returned to her face and she claimed to be feeling a little better. However, I could still see the pained look on her face and hear her curse under her breath every few seconds.
"It's no problem... Really." She said. "Thank you." She said smiling lightly. I was about to respond when suddenly the room went pitch black- actually, the whole house did.
"Jungkook-ah! What did you do?" I called out annoyed.
"It wasn't me!" The boy said as I heard his footsteps enter the room.
I heard the front door slowly creak open and footsteps walking down the hallway.
"I think we've got company." I whispered quietly.
