"Hello, Mr. Shields, I am glad you could make it, so are you sure that you want to take this house?" asked a man in his middle forties, his grey eyes showing his interest .
"Yes I am sure," answered a dark haired man "but I am very curious why the people who had this house sold it, this house is wonderful."
" I agree with you Mr. Shields, but they have a lot of memories that have relation with this house and some of that is not very pleasant." Answered the sales-man, the enthusiastic expression on his face vanished as the memories returned to him. Darien Shields looked at him with worry.
" Are you OK, Mr. Chaseco, you look like you knew this family."
"Yes, I knew them all, actually I am very good friend of them." Replied the man, his head dropped slightly so the bungs of brown hair shielded his eyes. He silently went to the exit when he opened the big white French doors he motioned to Darien to follow him. They exited together, before them opened a magnificent view. The most beautiful rose garden Darien ever had seen, roses of most interesting colours as blue and black, violet and white with shade of green, but also simple colours as brilliant white, crimson red, yellow, orange and pink.
"Look, Mr. Shields is not this garden very impressive?"
"Yes, I agree with you and I must tell you something that this garden is one of the reasons why I am buying this mansion, it is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen."
"Would you believed me if I told you that only one person was taking care of this garden?"
"If I would answered the truth I would say 'no, I can't believe you'."
"And that would be wrong, Mr. Shields, because it is true in the matter of fact it was only a little girl, no not little but still a girl."
"A girl?" echoed Darien "But that's impossible this garden is great and….very big."
"Yes, it is so great and so big as was the heart of that girl. See, Mr. Shields the owner had two children, a girl and a boy. The girl was his only child from his first marriage, his first wife had died giving birth to this lovely kid. The first years he had lost all the connections with the outside world, the only thing about that he cared was his daughter. But then the years past he understood that he could not grow his daughter alone so he married again and became social again, from his second marriage he had a boy. But still his daughter was the only precious thing in this world, everyone was thinking that because this girl had everything she wanted that then she will grow up and will be a little brat that care only about herself and don't think about the others. But they couldn't be more wrong about her, she is…was the most selfless person I know, she was the sun itself, then she was entering the room everybody would smile even if they were upset. Well, she raised this garden especially for her father, the poor man never got over his first wife." The sales-man started to walk down the stairs, Darien almost run after him.
"What happened to the girl you were talking about her like she is no more?" asked Darien.
"May be because she IS no more." Mr. Chaseco said bitterly. "She died almost a year ago."
"How did this happened? You told me that she was still young."
"Well yes she was very young, only eighteen but I didn't said right she didn't died she was killed. She didn't returned one day at home, but nobody was looking for her, you know like policemen's say she is a young girl may be she is with a young boy, but she wasn't that kind of the girl so her father waited for her until morning and then went to look for her by himself. There was no need to look for her, he found her in this pretty garden, in the red roses, he said that she looked like she was sleeping but then he came near she was cold and her white dress was covered with blood. Somebody killed her with a sword, one hit just in the heart. But the most interesting is where the hell this bastard found a sword in our days? The police and the detectives that hired her father didn't find the murderer they still looking."
"That's very sad story Mr. Chaseco, you must knew this girl very well you look very upset right now."
" Yes, I was her godfather, come on Mr. Shields I will walk you to your car." They silently went towards the huge gates Mr. Chaseco drowned in his memories and Darien in his thoughts about a girl with cruel providence. Chaseco opened the gates, Darien followed him, they exited from the territory of the villa. On the wall near the gates a large metallic board with the name of the mansion "Rose Heaven" .
"Mr. Shields, I didn't asked you do you want to change the name of villa?" questioned the sales-man.
"I don't know, Rose Heaven I like the sound of this name, who had named it?" at sudden a slight breeze blow the petals of some roses leaving them on the stone paths.
"Serenity…" whispered the older man.
"Sorry, I didn't catch that, what did you say?" asked Darien.
"I said Serenity, I mean Serenity Tsukino, she named the mansion." He replied sadly.
"She is the girl you were talking about, your goddaughter." spoke softly Darien, amazed.
"Yes it is her." Slightly dazed from the conversation Darien shook the hand of the Mr. Chaseco and got in his car, Chaseco smiled warmly at him.
"Mr. Shields, the maidens and the butler will come tomorrow. But you can move in anytime you want."
" Thank you, the money has transferred on the right bill, Mr. Chaseco, it was pleasure to work with you. Good day." Said Darien as he turned on the engine, without any sound the car pull off in the mere of seconds Darien's car was nowhere in the sigh. Mr. Chaseco went to his, pulling off he murmured
"It was pleasure indeed, Mr. Shields."
