A step into love Episode 21 & 22

Cindy's heart thumped at the sight of the pistol John set on her head, her mouth glued together as she tried to recover herself from the shock, she couldn't hear John words clearly and after three minutes John yelled at her to answer his question but Cindy gulped down her saliva and asked what question John is talking about amidst tears,
John scoffed and screamed at her "I gave you five minutes to answer my question and four minutes is gone already still you can't answer me?" he paused and continued when Cindy is not talking "I said be mine or you die,choose between those two or I'll shoot you in the next one minute that remains"
"John, please....... Please John"she paused and gulped "I...... I..... " she stammered
"answer me now before the count of three" John yelled at her "one two...... "
He was cut short as the door was flung opened and someone entered breathing heavily to the extent that it could be heard in the small room, John and Cindy's head swung to the direction and here is Charles standing like a soldier obviously furious as he clenched his fist and scowled, Cindy was half happy half surprise while John was half surprise and half bitter and furious,
"what the hell did you think you are doing here and how did you get here?" John asked walking a little bit to Charles
"you should let her go" Charles snorted skipping the question
"oh! Really? And do you think I'll do that?" he scoffed
"are you crazy John? Do you think what you're doing is right? It's senseless so you should and you must let the innocent girl go" he retorted moving closer to John
"I don't think you're afraid of this" John replied swinging the pistol with his finger
"and are you really going to use that?" Charles asked moving more closer
"OH! Shouldn't I?, I think we should do it as man to man then" he stuffed the pistol in his trouser ready to fight "I've been always prepared and ready for this, especially with you" he scoffed posturing his fist before his face
"is that the only thing that can make you release her?" Charles asked
"I don't know but I think you should care for your life at this juncture" John smirked and move nearer to Charles ,without hesitation and acting to the enraged stimulus in him he fisted Charles at his mouth which made Charles let out a cry as he hold his bloody mouth with his palm in anger staring at John with hatred while John was busy smirking, suddenly he let out a scream, lifting his fist and the Fist fight started,
Never in Charles' life or at his adulthood have he enter into fight with anybody, he might be an arrogant type but he doesn't have best friend nor friends not to talk of fighting with them, he's a quiet person although sometimes talk when it's necessary, while John is an ex-convict, a notorious thief and gangster who had got involved in various street fight before he was being transformed, Charles manage to strike John's nose with his fist using all the strength in him and the nose started bleeding, with this John got more furious and overpowered Charles as he pulled him to the ground and continued striking his face with his fist,
"STOP!!!" Cindy let out a cry as she couldn't watch the scene going on again, she'd use the privilege she had to loose the rope that have been used to tie her down when they were fighting,
John stood up, touched his nose and stare at the bloody hand, still blinded by the anger in him, he stuffed his hand into his trouser and brought out the pistol he had kept earlier, he pointed it at Charles who's already lying on the ground exhausted and oblivious of what's going on, he pulled the trigger and fired it,
Immediately, he noticed Cindy had left the place he'd tied her to and she's now on Charles, he became stunned and the gun dropped from his hand, as he was about pulling the trigger Cindy had left the seat and mount on Charles thereby receiving the trigger,
He realized he had shot Cindy instead of Charles or no, Cindy had took the bullet for Charles ........
TBC.....

Episode 22
Charles was awakened back to life by the sound of the gunshot, he sat up only to realize Cindy is on her and while he was about tapping her to wake up maybe she might have fainted, he realized blood gushing out of her shoulder, he became flabbergasted and stunned as his head spun, he looked up and found John staring at them with guilty and surprise written all over his face, Charles did not take his time to mind this as he screamed out,stood up with anger and pulled John to the floor, striking his face with both of his fist while John didn't bother to retaliate, it seems he was shocked to have shot Cindy.
Suddenly, Angelina rushed in from nowhere and ran to Cindy, calling her and shouting her name, she brought out her cellphone and called the emergency,
Within few minutes, the ambulance came and Cindy was hurried into it while Charles and Angelina joined her, it seems someone had called the cops as they'd arrived before the ambulance and John have been arrested (again).
The ambulance arrived the hospital safely and speedily and Cindy was rushed into the ward, Charles and Angelina both ran after her as she was been driven into the ward but they were held back by the nurses, so Angelina stood in the passage pacing up and down as she bit her bottom lip and slapping her fist together while Charles stood and rested his back at the wall, rubbing his face with his palm and clapping his fist together as he sighed each and every moment.
Few minutes later, the doctor came out looking stressed out, Charles and Angelina quickly approached him immediately they sighted him coming,
"doctor, how's she? Hope she'll be alright" Angelina asked impatiently
"the situation is getting critical and she'd loose so much blood including the bullet, the penetration is too deep so we'll need to carry out surgery and we need a person to sign before that could happen" the Doctor explained
"Doctor, I'll sign it" Charles answered looking bothered
"and what's your relationship with her, remember we need her family to do that" the Doctor expatiate
"yes, I'm her brother" Charles lied
"and what about your parents?" the Doc asked again
"they traveled few weeks ago, for Christmas.........please I can do this Doctor" Charles pleaded looking worried
"and what about the money?" the Doctor asked
"that's not a problem at all"
"well, it's okay but you have to make everything snappy cause the percent of her living, is just twenty percent" the Doctor explained and left
"What!" Angelina exclaimed as her hands dropped and her eyes widened, Charles couldn't believe this either,
He was totally stunned.......
