Nachine fired the gun. His blood filled the soup bowl and absorbed in the bread. She dropped the gun in the drawer. Zetta rushed into Nachine's room lifting Goyo's head from the bowl.
"He's dead," Zetta said, shivering. She slapped her mother in the face.
Khalilah and Valerian came into room. He stopped Zetta from her second attack on Nachine. He held her as he glared at Goyo's dead body. "You're making a mess that I can't coverup."
"I'm cleaning up the mistake," Nachine said kicking Goyo's chair to the floor. "I've got one more."
"My son wasn't a mistake," Valerian said. "It's time for you to go."
"You need me to tell you what to do useless," Nachine said running down the stairs.
"Killer her off Valerian," Zetta said. "Nobody has her back."
Valerian held Zetta hand together. He motioned for Khalilah to get her something to drink. She stepped over Goyo body then around the couple to reach the sink.
"I could've given you the world, Valerian," Zetta said. "I hate your ass. Get your things and get out." She chugged him a few times. Khalilah restrained her. She broke free from her, hurrying down the stairs. She heard knocks on the door, Valerian dragged Goyo's body under the table. Khalilah wiped up the blood with dish towels, swiping the gun from the drawer and stuffing it underneath her pants. She disposed of the towels, hiding them under the sink.
"We want to ask you some questions about Yasmine kidnapping, Officer Newberry's death, and a lot other things," Brice said. He just wanted to get in and beat her.
Khalilah and Valerian joined Zetta at the end of the stairway. Nachine peek out the double pane window. Zetta approached her mother then Valerian and Khalilah. She waved the three of them off.
"Tell Hefty to come here," Nachine said.
"Go get him," Valerian said to Khalilah. She turned toward the kitchen door.
"Open up," Brice said pounding.
"Wait a second," Nachine asked. The door clicked, Brice rushed in.
Hefty fired a shot at him. "Gotcha you."
