g them and Edwin was one of those few people.
Only the living death can make Edwin this worried and helpless. Marcus was almost certain about it.
”Where are the rest? ” Edwin had asked, shortly after waiting for a while.
”On their way up, I already called them ” Marcus said and Edwin didn bother to ask him how. He already knew the three brothers can talk to themselves through their mind links without actually saying a word, part of the reason why he felt coming to them was actually a good idea even though their existence is just as disturbing as their other counterpart, but then again, they were still the lesser evil and more reliable.
They waited another moment before they were joined by Marcus two other brothers, Jackson and Lucien who showed up alert as though they were already in the knowing.
Jackson was next to Marcus and Lucien was the last and the most lay back of the three brothers.
”Eddy ” Lucien nodded at their friend before walking further to settled down beside his bother at the railing while Jackson did same as well.
”Whats the big news Ed, we heard you have something important to share with us ” Jack had asked shortly.
”Is it Money? Because I could use some cash right now ” Lucien joined in with a chuckle and Marcus growled under his breath putting an end to the laughter.
Lucien grumbled under his breath at his eldest brother reaction but said nothing further and Jackson simply scoffed under his breath.
The older man among the three brothers stood straighter and sighed in deeply before looking all three in the face.
”I need your assistance boys. ” He told them simply.
”Whatever you want, Eddy. Tell us what happened and if we can help you then why not? ” Marcus said firmly and Edwin nodded before continuing.
”One of the council member daughter has gone missing. She went out and never returned ”
”Then go report to the right authority. We are not the police ” Jackson expressed and Lucien agreed with a nod before adding.
”The council members have connection and can get the whole of this area swimming with cops within a blink of an eye so why wait ”
” Come on boys. This is bigger than the police. She practically disappeared without a trace and you and I know thats impossible ”
Marcus gave a shrug, ”If truly she disappeared without a trace then you and I knows she is already gone for good, Eddy and there is nothing we can do to help ”
”Thats if we wanted to help of course ” Jackson quickly added just for emphasis.
”Look, I know you boys don see eyes to eye with the council but this girl is worth saving ”
Lucien scoffed. ”Whats so special about her. I mean, so many people have gotten missing before and no one moved mountain for them. Why her? ”
Edwin lip parted slightly but hesitation took the best of him. Marcus saw the look in his eyes and knew he was either lying or not telling the whole truth.
”I can see this girl mean something to you so the sooner you tell us the whole truth, the better for her ” Marcus said and watched his shoulders tensed even more.
All three brothers watched as Edwin Roland shifted his weight from one foot to the next before looking up at Marcus.
”She is special because she is my daughter ”
