Grendel's Short Story: The Haunted House
"I'm coming," I replied to my second in command. I didn't like his tone. It told me something was really bad. His nervousness made me nervous. Viktor was a tough son of a bitch and if something got him this riled up then it was something big. Something that I really wouldn't like.
I got up from my chair, and walked out of the room. I saw a few of my men in the hallway and the bowed their head in respect as I walked by. Even though they were my men, I commanded respect from all of them.

As Viktor got to work, the man's screams filled the room. Blood dripped all over the floor but I kept my gaze fixed on him the whole time. When I saw the man started to lose conscious, I raised my head. Viktor instantly stopped his torturous ministration.

"I will ask one last time. Why and who?" I said menacingly as I took his face in my hand. I pressed my fingers hard into his cheek until blood oozed badly from his wounds.
When the man still didn't answer, I let his face go and stood up as I pushed my chair away. I wasn't going to get my hands dirty that time.

Maybe they had forgotten who the f*cked I was. I was the f*cking Russian Mafia Boss. I was feared by all and nobody f*cking betrayed …show more content…
I constantly prayed that I found someone who could help me.
When dawn started to approach, I was too tired to continue running. I was no longer in the forest, but I was at the side of a deserted road. I limped along the side of road until I came across houses and shops.

My eyes widened and I stared at the closed door in shock. I turned to walk away but caught sight of Alberto's man. They were walking and looking around. My eyes widened and I quickly hid behind the house. As I tried to figure out my next plan, lights suddenly flared around the corner. I looked to my left and saw a black vehicle slowing to a stop.
I stood still as I saw a large man stepped out of the car. He was wearing a black suit, similar to what Alberto and my father wore. I couldn't see him well as it was still dark outside. He walked over to the house beside me, and went
