Is this a trap?!
In an empty room with almost no furniture except a clean white bed, chair and a small table , sat an old man who looked scrawny and weak. He had sunken eyes, unkempt hair and beard. He quietly took a few selected pills from the table and swallowed them directly as if it was a regular task.
He looked at the clock in the room that showed 6:27 pm turned towards the window. He felt at peace as he looked at the sky that was painted reddish orange. A few minutes passed as he looked outside and turned to look at the door as he heard the doorknob click.
A boy entered the room as he smiled at his grandfather. He had dark black hair that touched his eyebrows. His hair was messy but it strangely complimented his already good looks as they covered almost half of his dark brown eyes, the only shortcoming being the dark circles under his eyes and his height of about 5 feet 8 inches but he believed he would grow at least another inch before he stopped growing altogether.
The boy closed the door, walked towards the bed, sat down on the chair beside it and started unboxing the food that he had packed for his grandfather. ”How was your day at school, Lucio? ”.
Lucio paused as he heard the grainy voice of his grandfather and said ”It went alright…. ” He gave his grandfather a plate, placed some food on it and he started narrating things that happened that day.
It was unsurprisingly a normal day for Lucio as he told his grandfather how he went to the game rooms with his three close friends. This was a daily routine for both of them as the old man attentively listened to his 17 year old grandsons daily life experiences.
This was the mans happiest phase of the day as he got to spend time with his grandchild. An hours later, it was Lucios turn to listen to the amazing stories of his grandfather who used to live an adventurous life.
The stories were hard to believe as they involved Drugs, life in jail, the growth and fall of a cartel group. But Lucio still smiled as he listened to the frail old man sitting on the bed in front of him.
Lucio opened the window as it felt stuffy inside and left the room with the empty box and the grandfather sighed as he muttered, ”It is a pity that Ill be leaving you this soon Lucio. ” He turned to look at the photo frame on the table which showed Lucio when he was 6 and his parents.
He looked at his son and daughter-in-law with mixed feelings and slid the photo out of the photo frame.
There was a cut out newspaper article stuck to the inner wall of the photo frame.
The bold headlines read CARTEL BOSS DIES IN A GRUESOME ACCIDENT The man looked at the newspaper article with regret ”This wasn supposed to happen. ” As the old man slowly felt tired, he lay down and fell asleep soon after.
Lucio casually walked back home.
Entering his messy room that was filled with a lot of broken electronic parts and a lot of small wires, he directly went to his table where he usually used to do his homework and other projects. Taking out a box of cards from the drawer, he searched for a single card. It showed a woman with a cloth climbing her body like a snake.
”The world…. The card that signifies the end . ” he whispered as he turned the card around. It was different from the other cards as it was covered in blood.
His mother had mysteriously disappeared a month after his fathers death. Lucio did his investigation but never found out what happened or where she went. He went to the small kitchen and turned on the flame. Opening the fridge and taking out the box of pancake batter that he had made in the morning, he started working on his dinner.
After having his meal, he looked at the time before putting his hand under the mattress and pulling out a small box. Inside the box was a small leather covered book imprinted with the words ” Tiano Family ” , Lucios surname.
He quietly turned the pages and inside it were information on all the important and loyal members of the former Cartel group. The history of this group was unclear and he didn dare
