Dead! Part 11

Frank's POV:

On the way home I tried my best to calm down and look like everything was fine, the plan would be ruined if John got involved more than he normally did. I'd have to act the way I used to around him, which meant going back to acting like the heartless slave I used to be. I closed my eyes for a second and took a deep breath as I opened the front door.
"What did you think you were doing?" I snapped, John pretended to be surprised."I was just seeing how things were going" he replied with that twisted smile of his, I couldn't tell if it was real or paranoia but I felt like he didn't believe me. "Why? I have them exactly where I want them" I replied coolly. At that point lying was coming easy to me. I could tell that he was doubting me, "it's called lying" I snorted "I have them wrapped around my finger, the poor idiots wont know what's coming. Just leave it all to me". He still looked doubtful for a second before shrugging and walking off.
I breathed out a sigh or relief. I quickly text Gerard with "I think he bought it" but he didn't reply for a while. I wonder if Mikey and Ray would be as calm about everything as Gerard was? I was still surprised that he didn't just kill me, a part of me wished that he had. I deserved it. I hated being in the apartment with John but after seeing him follow Mikey around I had to confront him. At that particular moment since I had an idea as to what really happened to me and as much as I knew he didn't care I wished I found out in the first place. Although I wished it wasn't true, it was such a sad way to go. The tattoo still didn't make any sense either, would I ever find out what it meant. But that wasn't important anymore, what was important was never going back to being the mindless killer I once was. I just hoped that I could buy enough time to actually come up with something to keep it that way.
