Prologue.A Chapter by SuicidePact.
Drip! Drip! Drip! The sound from the falling rain interfered with Kaetalita’s concentration. She had no idea why this dinner was so important to her husband Tera, but she was only minutes away from the restaurant. It was a miserable evening on the island, the sky was dark and the air was musky the rain was dampening the mood. Never the less as she parked her car beside his, and opened up her umbrella she quickly, in a mad dash, ran towards the building. A glimpse of her man in the front window caused her to smile weakly.
“So sorry I’m late.” She clumsily scooted into the booth beside him, he leaned over for a gentle kiss.
“You’re here now.” He sighed staring into her big brown eyes; it was hard to believe that once upon a time the pair had hated one another. Shivers bolted down his body when his wife squeezed the tip of his knee.
“So why are we here, what’s the big occasion?” impatiently she pestered before taking a gulp from his water glass. She’d always been impatient that was one think Tera had noticed when they’d met. With her cute tapping of the foot, and the folding of her brow he couldn’t resist opening his mouth to give her the news.
“I got into the pro circuit.” His grin beamed from ear to ear, he was clearly very impressed by this glorious news.
“YOU DID IT BABY!” came the ear bursting squeals of his over excited wife, those who sat around them were not so impressed, but he didn’t care one bit, this was there time to celebrate. Surfing was what had brought this pair together, so it was definitely more than enough reason to celebrate.
“We’re going on tour!” they toasted with a glass of champagne each, the atmosphere had changed completely from what it was like outside in the rain.
“Let’s go home and celebrate.” He whispered in her ear, the hairs on her neck stood tall, and she gave a slight nod and held onto his readied hand.
“It’s still raining.” She observed once outside taking shelter under her newly opened umbrella shades. Her husband wrapped his arms around her safely guiding her across the slippery car park.
“Let’s take my car.” He suggested, guiding her away from her own vehicle. Tera figured they’d be safer in the one car; he didn’t like the idea of his wife driving home by herself. She climbed into the passenger seat her hands straight away flickered the heating buttons as Tera started the car.
“Can’t wait to get out of this rain.” She muttered rubbing her hands together.
“You are out of the rain.” Tera pointed out while he backed out of their parking spot.
“You know what I mean.” She near but snapped, Kaetalita’s father had always thought her temper would scare any man away; Tera was not one of them.
“Have you told your sisters yet?” She asked him, along with the hum of the radio, it was hard to see outside of the windows as they drove against the storm. The windscreen wipers were struggling Tera was silently praying to get home in one piece.
“No I haven’t. I wanted to tell you first.” He answered keeping his eyes on the road.
“Aww aren’t you sweet.” She cooed, rubbing his arm in a distracting way. He tried his hardest to keep focused on the road; their lives depended on it in his mind.
“I love you.” He told her, just making sure that she knew.
“You are so paranoid, but I love you too.” She laughed at his paranoia, but Tera was always a worrier, always thinking of the ‘what if’ scenario.
Her laugh was the very last thing Tera ever heard his wife do. It was the very next moment that a car horn screeched in the pairs ears. Tera’s very fear came true when a nearby truck skidded into the side of his car.
