Skylar's POV:

As if realizing how I was still present here, Blake looked at me.

"What lies did he feed you, Sky?" He looked like he was enjoying every bits of it.

I wasn't.

"What do you mean?" I whispered.

"What did he tell you about our parents?" He asked.

A strange feeling clouded over me. As if I knew what was coming. I really was hoping not.

"Fire." My voice rose above a whisper. "They died in a fire."

Silence filled in the atmosphere. Before Blake chuckled out loud and looked at Caden. Then at me.

"Christ, are you serious?" He asked.

I didn't think I had enough energy within me to nod. From the corner of my eye, I could see Caden's clenched fists.

"I cannot believe my ears." He said, before sitting down on his knees and sliding the metal disk inside the chest. He was comfortable doing that. As if he knew how nobody could stop him from getting his hands on that thing.

The lid opened. And inside it was the same vase looking goblet I had seen on that sketch. Blake took it out, admiring it.

"I mean, I don't want to ruin this perfect relationship or anything." Blake looked over at me. "But I think you should've seen the autopsy reports first."

I looked at him as he ripped out the giant red crystal from the surface of the goblet. It sparkled with a blood red color.

"Of our sweet, old parents." He added.

I could feel my throat drying up.

"You want me tell you what was in it?" He asked looking at me. I'm sure he was going to tell me either way.

"The reports stated that our beloved parents died from bullets in their body." He let out an amused laugh before looking up at the ceiling. "Not some fire."

I looked over at Caden. He was already looking at me. I tried searching for any refusal in his eyes. I wanted him to tell me how this wasn't true.

But he didn't.

"I mean, the house did burn up once." He added. "But that was way after they died."

Caden wasn't stopping Blake from spewing shit out of his mouth.

"Let's just keep it small and easy." Blake continued. "Caden killed them. And he lied to you."

I found myself looking away from him. The shock was too much. But I still knew how Blake was the bad one here. Caden had lied to me yet once again. I wasn't planning to dwell on that.
