One. 2010.Mature

"Shut the door will you," the man sat at the computer yelled, angrily. "Your letting in a draft, you dumb fool!" 

He carried on scrolling through the website he was on without bothering to see who had come in. To be honest, he didn't care. He was busy, and he didn't have time for others. 

 Seconds later, a cold breeze tickled his neck. Annoyance ran through him as he realised his orders had been ignored. Another stupid starter, he thought angrily. Just as he was about to turn round though, a sharp knife was placed against his throat. He gulped. 

"Frank." A women whispered into his ears. As soon as he recognised the voice, terror flooded through him.

"Eve." He stuttered. "I'm sorry. I didn't realise it was you." 

"I don't appreciate being called a dumb fool." she said quietly, a hint of amusement in her voice.

"I know. I didn't mean you. I thought you were a lower subject." He tried to say.

"And now lower subjects are fools too, are they?" She said back, slowly.

"No, I -"

"Frank. What are we fighting for?" She asked him, turning him round to face her. All the while the knife rested on his throat.

"Freedom. Respect." He answered, nervously. His heart hammered against his chest as he stared into her dark eyes. Everyone was scared of Eve. Any other woman, and every Freedom Hunter in there group would never dare admit they were weaker than her. But Eve. Eve was someone not to be messed with. 

"Then why do I hear that you consistently bully the newer members and the 'lower subjects' as you put it, if what were fighting for it is the opposite?" Eve said standing up. Frank breathed out as he rubbed his neck quickly. 

"Were fighting to raise our community. Were fighting for equality. If were just going to torment the bottom of our group then will there always be a bottom? And if so what are we really fighting for?" She asked him raising her eyebrows. 

He didn't answer. He couldn't. She towered over him, with her short black hair tucked behind her ears. Dressed in black fitted clothes, with huge black army boots, you could tell she wasn't to be messed with. Frank definitely regretted not turning round now to see who had come in.

"A sorry would probably make me feel better." She said, her lips twitching up at the corners. 

"Sorry. Sorry. I am." Frank stuttered out. Eve placed her knife in her belt and walked to the other side of the room. As she bent down, to sign onto one of the opposite computers, he couldn't help but look at her ass. 

He turned away quickly, before she noticed him. He certainly didn't want to see her reaction if she caught him staring. It was a known fact that Eve didn't fall for anyone. In fact, there were rumours that she couldn't show affection. Love wasn't part of her, and it would never be. He sighed and carried on with what he was doing.

On the opposite side of the room, Eve signed on quickly, then sat down as the internet came up. Quickly navigating her way to the Daily News page, she scrolled through till she found what she was looking for. 

 

FREEDOM MENACES ATTACK AGAIN

At ten O'clock today, five members of the criminal group 'Freedom Hunters' held a small store hostage, till every penny was took. They were in there for a maximum of half an hour, and managed to get away before the police had even been alerted. 

The store belonged to the successful company owned by Daniel Travis. Customers were shocked and scared, and there were even some injuries. No information has been given forward to how much was took. 

Carol Jackson, a customer that was kept hostage tells us that "The people were frightening. They tied us all up, and threatened to shoot us if we made a sound. There was one man that kept yelling at them, and he was shot. I had to close my eyes, it was horrifying. Monsters. Monsters is what they are." 

The man who was shot, named Jason Lomax, is still in hospital being treated still. It is said that he will make a full recovery after loosing a lot of blood. The shooter missed him slightly, so the bullet only grazed his arm. 

At the moment, the police have no leads on the people that raided the robbery, as once again the theft was well thought out. With this being the third robbery this month, it is safe to say that the Freedom Hunters are increasing. Both the police services and Daniel Travis refused to discuss the matter with us. 

 

Eve smiled as she finished reading it. She remembered shooting that lunatic of a man. Yelling insults at them as if they would tremble at his voice. She had shot him gladly, to shut him up. But she didn't kill unless she needed too. She had purposely angled the gun so as not to kill him but only harm him. Missed? She never missed.

She turned off the screen and sat back.

"You read this Frank?" She asked, without turning round. He grunted. 

"I sure have. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be." He said to her. 

"I know what you mean. No insults to us this time. The're getting scared." She stood up and stretched.

"Good night Frank. I hope you take in what I said before." She told him, before leaving the room. 

Seconds later Frank turned his computer off. It had been a busy day, and a successful one at that. No one had been lost and much had been gained. 

And to add another positive, people were starting to take them more seriously. Damn right, the Freedom Hunters were increasing. And they were getting stronger. 

He shivered as he remembered the look of joy that had flashed across Eve's face when she had shot that man. Damn, he was glad he was on her side. He would definitely not want to have her as an enemy. 

The End
