MONSTERS THE FINALE: THE END OF THE BEGINNING PT. I
It’s been a hell of a day. Contracts to finish up, messes to clean up, deals to be made and finished in their entirety. It was all well worth it in the end. Gathering my things as I was about to head out the door, I notice that the light in Alexis’ office was still on. Where the hell could she have gone? Her desk was a mess with papers everywhere, from the past couple of days transactions. She isn’t like this. She wouldn’t just leave her work like this unless something urgent came up. I don’t know what it could have been but shit she could have told me before up and bouncing out on me.
Shuffling through the papers on her desk, I organized them according to the days with which each transaction took place and the one’s with the utmost importance were placed on top. If there was one thing I knew for certain about Alexis, it was how organized she was when it came to handling business. In the midst of my thoughts, my phone begins to ring and I pick it up looking at the screen to see that it’s MJ. Noticing what time it is, I wonder what she’s doing up so late.
“What’s up baby girl?!”
“Hey baby. What are you doing right now?”
“I'm just leaving the office. Fucking Alexis never came back, so I had to close up shop. What are you doing out so late?”
“I had some business to take care of. It turned out to be a beautiful work of art!”
“Work of art huh?! Sounds like my baby is working hard. Is that why you called?”
“No. I actually called cause I have a special treat for ya!”
“A treat? Hmm what kind of treat?”
“I can't tell you. You're just going to have to wait and see.”
“Come on MJ. Stop teasing me. Give me a little taste?”
“Nope. You're gonna have to wait and see, but I can guarantee that you will love it!” she said.
“Alright babe. I'll see you at home.”
It’s been awhile since I have seen MJ, and I’m excited to see her tonight. Like i said, it’s been stressful and she knows how to make me feel calmer than the winds but a strong force to be reckoned with. Considering Alexis just upped and left, yea I could use the relaxation tonight and more than anything just her company.
Meanwhile, back at MJ’s Apartment
The night seemed so still that even my dream felt so real. It was a time back when I was truly happy. When Alexis was in my life and it was just her and I. From all the dreams I have had of us, this one was different. It started out so nice and then turned for the worst. Showing every mistake, every obstacle and every struggle. The highlights of our relationship was overshadowed by the lows of what happened to us. But the final image, was one that had never happened before and it was so unfamiliar. Her essence was real. The smell of her perfume, the way her hair fell in place was the same. The way she walked and talked, it was so real. I could even touch her.
Looking at her, it made me realize how much I missed and loved her. How I would have done anything for her because she was the one who held me down. The worst feeling in the world is when the one you loved so much is the one who betrays you in the worst way. All I could do was stand there and look at her with curiosity as to why. Why did we have to be that couple that went down that road? Why did we have to be brought down? Why wasn’t I enough for her?
“Jay. Don’t do that. Don’t blame yourself and don’t question any of those decisions you made when we were together.”
“How did you?...” My voice trailed off into the distance as I looked at her.
“I have known you for so long, that I have always known when you blamed yourself for things that were out of your control. None of it was your fault. It was all me. All of it. I fucked up, not you.”
“Even still, I know you Alexis. When you can place the blame you would, so why change now all of a sudden. Deep down, you and I both know that you blame me for how things ended between us.”
“At one point Jay I did. I’m not going to deny it. I did. I felt like you used me to get close to Simon because you knew more than anything what he really wanted from me. But I had to admit to myself that it wasn’t you who forced me to do it. I wanted to do it all along. I wanted what I couldn’t have and it was enticing. I knew what he was about and how he was. I still didn’t give a shit.”
“But we both know, if I had decided to never ask him to become a partner than that would have never happened. And he would have never requested to have you,”
“That might be true Jay, but who’s to say that I still wouldn’t have met him somewhere in the future and still decided to do the same thing anyways? At the end of the day, it was all my decision. I wanted more and not just what you had given me. I became greedy and allowed my greed to take over. You were enough for me, I just didn’t want to see it.”
I didn’t know what else to say to her. It felt like we both said everything that we needed to and had been wanting to say for years but never got the chance to. But why? Why is she here in my dreams saying these things instead of telling me in person. She stood there looking at me with innocent eyes that were filled with regret and sadness. She was also glowing. I never noticed it the entire time that we were talking, but she seemed to be glowing from everywhere.
“Alexis, wait why are you here?”
“There is something I have to tell you. It’s about MJ. She is not all that she appears to be.”
“I know. I have been trying to figure out what’s been going and if it’s really true that she is Rae.”
“Wait…. So you knew all this time?!”
“I overheard her talking to herself one day, but I didn’t want to believe that she was that person. You and I both know, that when Simon wants someone dead he makes sure that they are dead. But then, I started noticing little things and it made my suspicion grow.”
“Well you were right to trust your instincts. She is Rae. Look Jay, I can tell you how I know but they’re isn’t enough time to explain. Just know this. She is Rae and when you wake up in the morning I will no longer be here. Just there.”
“Alexis what do you mean you will no longer be here. Please don’t tell me…. It can’t be true.”
“I’m sorry Jay, but I have to go.”
“Don’t leave… One last time… Please don’t leave.”
“I have to go.”
Slowly she began to disappear, fading into the background with only a small amount of happiness and tears falling down her cheeks. One final smile goodbye and she was gone.
I woke up instantly from the dream. The room spinning, my breathing deep, heavy and ragged. My right hand went straight to my heart, trying to calm down the beating drum. My mind was still reeling from the dream. I pray that it’s not true. But deep down, I knew that it was. Putting my clothes back on, I found my phone and saw that I had some missed calls from Detective Kwon. Just as I suspected. From the looks of it, she got her way with me, or so she thought, and took off in the middle of the night.
“Jay… Where are you? I thought she drugged you.?”
“DId you get her? Where is she?”
“I followed her to a warehouse and saw her go inside. I had been waiting here for over an hour after following and....”
“I don’t give a shit about that. DId you catch her?!”
“Look, I”m telling you this because the fucking building is now up in flames. I heard gunshots from where I was and went to go check it out but the door had been sealed shut from the inside. I couldn’t find another way in. I don’t know who was in there with her or what happened, but I do know that I saw her slip through the crowd.”
“Fuck!! How the hell did you let her get away.”
“It was too many people crowding the place. But I did track her phone, so I know where she is heading.”
“Send me the info and I’ll meet you there. I guarantee you this, it fucking ends today. All of it. It has to end. She killed Alexis and I know for a fact that she plans on taking us out as well.”
“What the hell you mean she killed Alexis? Jay how do you know that?”
“I just do.”
“I think it’s time we bring in extra reinforcements. We have enough evidence on her and her agreement, well she won’t have to worry about that anymore.”
Already out the door, I headed straight to my place and to get a few more things. I had to end this or else she gets her way and I can’t let that happen. The enemy that I thought I had, turned out to not be the enemy that I desired. Thy enemy now becomes my friend, to battle the true evil that we both had a hand in creating. But will he believe me and give her up? There’s only one way to find out and I made the call to Simon.
Humming against the dead silence of the night, the high from the adrenaline was coursing through my body. The electricity that filled my veins was more than gratifying. Especially the thought of being able to take Simon by surprise. But it wouldn’t be right to allow him to go so easily. He has to suffer the way that I did and feel what I felt. Considering that right now, he still has no idea about Alexis. I looked down at my hand staring at the wedding rings that she wore faithfully, although he was not deserving of her loyalty. Pocketing her rings, I came to Simon’s door and let myself in. I had my own code to be able to get into his house. I knew he would be home at any moment and I needed to shower so he wouldn’t be able to smell the mixture of Alexis’ perfume and gasoline.
By the time I got out of the shower, he was walking through the door calling my name.
“I’m up here!” I yelled back at him.
“There you are. Where the hell have you been? I called your name at least 5 times, baby girl.”
“I wanted to freshen up a bit before you got here, so I took a quick shower.”
“I see…” he said eyeing me with deep dark eyes. I smiled right back at him and swung my arms around his neck as he wrapped his around my waist.
“So what exactly, is this surprise that you had for me? You know how much I hate surprises.”
I couldn’t help but laugh.
“I have a few surprises lined up for you baby.”
He raised his eyebrow and looked into my eyes, searching for the lie that he thought he knew I was telling. The silence was broken by the ringing of Simon’s phone. He looked down at it and as he did I snuck a peek to see who would be calling this early. To my surprise it was Jay. He looked slightly annoyed at the fact that he was calling him. He turned it off and set it to the side.
“Who was that?”
“No one important.”
He tossed the phone to the side and returned his attention back to me.
“So back to where we were. Now what was that surprise you had for me?”
“You’re looking right at it.”
I slowly pulled back my robe exposing what was beneath. A devilish smile spread across his face, whilst pulling me closer. His brown eyes got darker, filling with lust and seduction. That gaze was intoxicating and the high that was I still on was intensifying more and more. I needed more of the rush. I pressed my lips against his, kissing him hard. It shocked him for a second but then he picked me up and we made our way to the bed. It feels like it has been a century since we have been together like this. His arms around me and our bodies entwined.
There was nothing better in this world than being in his arms. He knew exactly what to do to make your body feel light as a feather. He knew exactly what to do and my body was revelling in it all. Ecstasy and passion, mixed with the complicated emotions that we would both feel. I hated to admit it but he was the best I ever had. The sun began to rise and II laid wrapped in his arms, watching him sleep. Touching his face one last time I kissed him on the cheek as I studied his face. It was hard to imagine that at one point I had truly loved this person. I loved him still.
But at the same time, I hated him for everything he did, but loving him was what I missed the most. This part of Simon that I knew and loved. Not the cold hearted bastard who put three fucking bullets in my chest and tried to kill me. But that’s okay, since little does he know that he is fucking the ghost he dreams about on occasion. It will turn his world upside down to know that I have been alive this whole time and that I’m going to be the one to cause his demise. I quietly got out of the bed and got dressed so not to wake him. I looked at him one last time. It was time to end it. I found a piece of paper and wrote a note on it. Leaving it on his bedstand with Alexis’ rings.
When he wakes he won’t know what’s gonna hit him.
Here is part I of the 2 part finale. Thank you all for the love and support. I hope you enjoy.
