Chapter 7 | The Familiar Person
"Ruthe!" they both screamed. "I came here as soon as your mother called me. I have to tell you something I kept from the whole world." Ruthe quietly said and let out a deep sigh. She blinked her eyes and frowned.
"We know! You're a cold-blooded murderer!" Elijah said glaring at her. He folded his arms and looked the other way, with anger.
"No, that's not true." cried Ruthe. "Wow! You are one hysterical woman. How could you Ruthe?" Elana said and then looked at Elijah. "She's acting!" Elijah said to Elana.
Ruthe broke down and started crying, and she held her head.
"You are not even trying! Atleast put some effort into it." Elana said in a mocking tone. "Ha, she is such an actress! honestly I can act better!" Elijah snapped.
"Stop it! You two. Come with me and get in the car behind you. I don't kill. I am not a murderer. My secret is something else.
Get in the damn car and I will explain it all once you get in!" Ruth screamed and pointed towards a car behind them.
They quietly got in and saw atleast 5 water bottles packed on the floor and a box of food and 2 bottles of boba (a type of tea). The car had a moon-roof and a mini video player.
In the front seat was a Gucci bag and a hat. Ruthe pulled the coat off her and the duo saw a pink jumpsuit on her. Catching their glance, she said "I wore my jumpsuit underneath the coat".
Ruthe's brown wavy hair looked like a waterfall. "Eat the food, you must be hungry." Ruthe got into the driver seat and buckled her seatbelt.
She dug into her bag and took out a mini mirror and her lipstick. She applied it a little and looked at the children. They were eating the food faster than she has ever seen them eating.
Ruthe said "Drink the boba." The duo was just glad to. Ruthe started driving.
In a few minutes, the boba and food were finished. They arrived at a large hut. "Come on! This place is an inn, the only one I could find at this place" They sat on the cots outside.
A woman draped in a pink shawl sat in front of them, near a pot which was kept on fire. She looked at Ruthe and nodded her head. Ruthe smiled and said, "You both don't look okay.
Are you fine and comfortable now?"
"Uh... Uh... Yes... W... We are! But why are you being so nice to us?" Elana asked. "Ha Ha Ha... you are going to hear the secret!" Ruthe laughed and then was lost in thought.
What's the secret Ruthe wants to tell? Should they believe her? To know more, catch up with the next chapter... :)
