Captain Ghost


[[Part three of four]]

"You're not fooling anyone. Tell me: what's wrong with you? No B.S. or running away this time."

Mathew stared Rika's incredulity down with cold, hard impatience. She wasn't getting out of this one, not if he got his way - and he always got his way, even if he had to play a little dirty. Crossing his arms over his chest, he awaited the upcoming storm with single-minded resolve.

"You can't ask that! Don't be an ass!"

Rika was clearly furious, but also startled; her cheeks had gone a deep red, giving herself away. Mathew sighed inwardly. The girl never had been great at keeping secrets, but here she never stood a chance. Sniffing out the truth was one of his favourite hobbies.

"The rules of the game indicate you must answer," he stated flatly.

"Your question isn't a 'game'! This is my personal life!"

"Oh yeah?" he retorted, "And what, pray tell, were you thinking of asking if you won? Something innocent, I'm sure."

"Eh?!" Taken aback, she slowly shook her head and offered a sheepish smile. She wiped an obstinate tear from the corner of an eye. "Y-you're right, I guess... But listen good, 'cause I'm not going through this a second time! Got that?"

Mathew could but nod. Things were finally getting somewhere.
