The Silent Killer (Part 10)

Frank had ripped off one of the sleeves from his white t-shirt to wrap around Jessica's wound and Bob had Gerard's blazer wrapped around his stomach. Beset had fallen asleep on Mikey's shoulder who had his arms wrapped around her small body while he slept. Bob had finally stopped complaining about his cut and got some sleep on the hard wooden floor, Ivy had fallen asleep on Gerard's lap who was also sleeping. Frank passed out a while ago with Jessica sleeping on his shoulder, Ray was still awake, his eyes glued to the clock on the wall. The minute hand clicked as it moved onto the 12, the clock's chime echoed throughout the whole house, Semira looked up at him as he looked down at her.
“Happy new year.” He smiled.
“Happy new year.” She giggled wrapping her arms around him. She looked around the room to see everyone sleeping. “How long have you been awake for?” She whispered wiping the sleep from her eyes.
“A while.” He mumbled. “I can't sleep. I dunno how you guys do it.”
“It was the wine. It knocked me out.” Semira giggled sitting up. She sighed and rested her head on his shoulder. “Well, at least the rain has died down a bit.”
“Yeah. With any luck we'll able to get out of here soon.” Ray said.
“No June then?”
“Nope.” Ray shook his head.
“Coward.” Semira spat.
“You really don't like her do you?” Ray laughed. Semira shook her head. Ray heard footsteps from outside the room, a dark shadow was seen running back up the stairs. “Stay here.” Ray instructed.
“No.” Semira said holding onto his hand, but he pulled himself from her grip and ran out of the room after the shadow. “Ray!” She shouted running after him.

“June, stop!” Ray shouted.
“GET AWAY FROM ME!!” June screamed, tears rolled her cheeks that dripped off her chin and onto the floor.
“Why are you crying?” Ray asked softly. June didn't answer. She slowly pulled out a silver Caliber .45, M1911 pistol and raised it towards him. “June... June no.” Ray stuttered. Another tear slid down June's face as she turned the gun around and placed it inside her mouth. “June, stop!” Ray shouted.
“Why?” She mumbled. “So you can arrest me? No. I won't give you the pleasure.” She smirked.
“RAY!!” A loud scream came from the bottom of the stairs.
“Semira?” Ray mumbled, the second he turned his back the sound of a gun fired came from behind him. He gasped and turned back around to see June's brain and blood splattered on the wall, her body slid down onto the floor face first. Her skull was split and blood rapidly rushed out of her head. Ray sighed and shook his head before running back down the stairs. He ran down the stairs to see everyone standing at the bottom looking both worried and confused.
“Dude, we heard a gun shot, are you alright?” Frank asked sounding concerned.
“Yeah I'm fine... June isn't though.” He mumbled.
“What?” Jessica asked.
“She erm... she... she shot her... herself.” Ray said sounding uneasy.
“What do you mean; she shot herself?” Beset asked.
“I think she meant to kill me but instead panicked, lost her mind and killed herself.” Ray said, he sighed and leaned against the wall. He looked at everyone and frowned.
“Dude, you okay?” Gerard asked realising something was troubling him.
“Where's Semira?” Ray asked, everyone looked around to see she wasn't there. “Fuck.” He hissed running towards the back of the house.
