“How did you get in here?!” I was praying that Xiao Lang would sense Akuma’s aura in time. I was trying to stall him before he did whatever he intended on doing.
Akuma clucked his tongue. “You as many questions, Goddess.”
How did he know what Xiao Lang called me?!
“I can see into your mind, little lady.” He was mocking Ryu’s pet name for me as well. “I can sense your fear, you love, your everything.”
“XIAO LANG!!!” I screamed before Akuma lunged at me. At that precise moment, Xiao Lang appeared in the kitchen and threw himself onto Akuma—I was thrown, amongst the scuffle, across the kitchen and felt myself impact against the fridge. My vision was hazy but I could hear the gang members rush into the kitchen.
“How did you fucking get in here?!” Xiao Lang growled. I could faintly make out a glowing in his right hand.
“How. Did. You. Fucking. Get in here?!” He repeated with a more lethal tone. My vision cleared up completely and I was then aware of Eriol and Takashi standing in front of me with Clow, Ceroberus, Jin, Mei Lin, Feimei, and Sheifa on the other side. Familiar faces were closing in around the kitchen.
“It was your fatal mistake coming here.” Xiao Lang whispered. What happened next made my blood run cold.
