Realization and BetrayalMature

    Clare raced down the interstate towards The Bedre Times Corporate Headquarters with only 10 minutes to spare when suddenly the lightbulb within her mind flickered on. "Oh my god....." She swerved off to the right shoulder of the interstate and hit the brakes hard, causing the Mustang to growl in protest. "That couldn't have been...It wasn't....I gotta go back!" Clare slammed the gas pedal  down to the floor and speed to the nearest Off-Ramp. She jumped slightly as her phone began to ring,
"Hello?"
"Clare! Your late again! Your going to loose your job if you keep this habit up" It was her boss on the other end of the phone.
"I'm sorry Sir, but I've got something personal to attend to."
"Clare. I told you if you were late just ONE MORE TIME, I'd have to fire you." He continued, "And Clare, your 5 minutes late."
"I'm sorry sir, but by this point I don't care okay!" Clare smashed the End Call button and threw her phone into the back seat. "I gotta catch that bus...I have to I have to!"  Her phone began to ring again, begging for her to answer, yet she did not.

      Adamar sat quietly behind Bill, the City Bus Driver,
"Yo Bill....how's your family doin?"
"They's be doin' jus' fine n' dandy, why you ask?"
"I dunno...I was just curious.."
Bill turned and looked over his shoulder at Adamar as they waited on a red traffic light, "Bout dat girl earlier, who was she?"
Adamar sighed and shrugged, "Oh her...that was Clare."
"A new cityz girl you gotta crush on eh?" Bill asked teasingly.
"Nah, just an old friend.." Adamar sighed.
"An old girlfriend I would betz" Bill laughed and turned his attention back to the road, "Alrighty Adamar, tis your stop"
"Thanks Bill" Adamar nodded to Bill and stepped off the bus stairs and onto the hard yet cool concrete sidewalk on 12th and 66th. "My time has come..."
"Hello there Stephen...always a pleasure to have you around." Adamar turned to face Stephen who had attempted to come up behind Adamar unnoticed.
"Ah...You heard me!" Stephen allowed a smug smile to spread across his face as he held out his right hand for Adamar to shake.
"No Stephen, I didn't hear you, I just knew you were coming.." He glanced down at Stephens' outstretch hand and shook his head in denial, "I'm not going to greet my killer, you should know me well enough to know that Stephen."
"Haha, Always got a sharp tongue don'tcha'?" Stephen laughed smugly.
"Just state why your here and be gone." Adamar waved his hand at Stephen as if he was the owner and Stephen was a dog being shooed away.
"Very well." Stephen approached Adamar and bowed, "I'm here to end this circle of lies and claim what is rightfully mine." He raised himself up to his full height and smiled deviously at Adamar, "I'm pretty sure you know what that means."
Adamar raised his fists and nodded.
"Hahahahaaaa, Adamar Adamar Adamar...tsk tsk tsk," Stephen shook his head in disgust, "You haven't learned by now?" He withdrew a long slender dagger from his back left pocket and ran it through Adamar chest, "I don't play by the rules nor do I play nice."
"ugh...." Adamars' hands gripped the hilt of Stephens dagger as he fell to his knees in pain.
"Just close your eyes and never open then again Adamar...you'll be so much happier."
Adamar looked up into Stephens blue eyes and smiled, "Fuck you Stephen....damn you to hell, I'll be sure to be at your welcoming party when you arrive." With those final words Adamar stood and tore the embedded knife from his chest and tossed it into the air.
"Don't fight Adamar, you won't win" Stephen sighed and prepared to swing his fist into Adamars face but before he could Adamars own fist met Stephens face followed by Adamar doing a 360 spin, catching the dagger in the air, and ramming it straight into Stephens forehead.
"As I said, Fuck you, and see you in hell." Adamar fell to his knees again as Stephens lifeless body crumpled to the ground before him, "I'll be sure to come visit you in hell brother....  uhg....."
      Blood began to dribble from Adamars mouth as his world swayed before him. "I wish....I could have told you who I was Clare......I'm...so sorry...but it was better off that way..." Adamar closed his eyes and the world as he knew it, went silent forever.
