I never thought I would fall in love like this and defiantly not to a man of this sort. We met in a bad way and no one will approve of our relationship but no one will see me again, I hope. My dreams of leading a happy life with the man I love started to unravel when someone I used to know found me. I don't want to go back to my old life; I don't want to be torn away from all that I know now.
I always thought life for me was perfect, until the last night of college after the best party of my life, it soon turned out to be disastrous. I will never forget that night.-
I was strolling along the side walk when a pair of grubby hands grabbed my face and covered my mouth so I couldn’t scream. I tried to bite his finger but he just pressed harder against my face. He dragged me along the cold stony path towards a big black van. He opened the back doors of the van with a loud thud. He chucked me in the back like a worthless piece of trash.
My heart was in my throat as the mystery man drove away all my thoughts spinning around my head and I couldn’t even catch one single breathe. Each breathe that I took I felt one step closer to the end of my life, there was nothing but black around me and I felt isolated, wherever this guy was taking me there was no way out
All of a sudden the van came to a halt, I was thrown to the front due to the force, the mystery man slammed the doors open. It was pitch black outside and all I could hear was his heavy breathing and my heart in my ears, all I could feel was his masculine body pressing against me.
He had his hand pressed against my mouth; once again dragging me towards this big mansion like house. It looked like it had about three floors and tons of space. All I had felt at that very moment was his rough hands gripping tightly my hair pulling it slightly to persuade me to move towards his home.
He swung the front doors open and pushed me to the floor. I fell onto my hands and knees, lifted my head up and took in my surroundings. The walls and floor were very elegant, they looked like the mystery man was rich but how does he make so much money? As I was looking around I heard the door slam shut, I quickly turned to face the man who was smiling down at me.
He kneeled down to my level, put a finger under my chin and tilted my head up to look him in the eye. “Hello, darling. I hope you enjoy your very long stay here.” He said chuckling to himself.
“I’m not your darling!” I snarled at him. Once I spoke those words I knew I would regret them; he stood up spat on my face then repeatedly kicked me. With every kick he uttered a different word,
When he was finally done I was losing conciseness, he once again bent down to my level and whispered in my ear “you better start listening to me and doing everything I say or things are going to get worse for you.” Then I lost conciseness.
Was I dead? I opened my eyes and for just that one second I started to wish I was. I was tied to a wooden chair unable to get free. Pins were in my arms and whenever I moved it pierced through my flesh. My legs were tied together and there was a strong piece of metal holding open my mouth, I couldn’t breathe and I couldn't hear anything apart from rats squeaking all around me.
The door suddenly slammed open and there he was stood with a mask over his face, his skin was pure and his lips was moist he didn't look like a killer at all he actually looked handsome. He wouldn't hurt me I kept saying to myself, sweat dripping down my face.
He walked up towards me, hands behind his back with a huge smirk that you just couldn't miss. His smile was sweet and genuine and for that sudden second I thought he had changed his mind.
He moved his hand slowly from behind his back he had pliers in his hand I was so happy he was going to undo the metal and free me I thought but I was wrong. He moved slowly to me and rubbed his hand down my face, kissed my cheek with his soft lips then grabbed my head, he told me to stay still as he prodded my mouth with the pliers.
“Will you do exactly as I say?” he answered. I managed to nod the slightest bit hoping he noticed. He nodded his head to say he understood; he then brought the pliers round to the side of my head I clamped my eyes shut scared of what he was going to do. When I heard the creaking of metal being turned I opened my eyes to see he was taking the metal out of my mouth.
When he was done he took a few steps back and knelt down so he could look me in my eyes. He had the nicest smile at that moment, so kind and genuine. He placed a hand on my bear leg and slowly started to move his hand upwards; as he did so he landed in closer to my face.
“You're going to let me do this, you can’t stop me.” He whispered in my ear then slower placed kissed along my cheek bones before finally landing on my lips. He kissed me slow and passionate, all I could do was kiss him back and think about how good a kisser he is. As he kissed me he moved his hand further up my leg until his fingers touched the top of my underwear. He slowly slid his fingers across the top of them causing me to let out a light moan; I could feel him smile as we were kissing. He pulled his head back to look me in my eyes, and then kissed me one last time before pulling away completely and standing up. I hate to admit it but I liked that.
“Will you let me out of this chair please?” I questioned him.
“Only if you promise me something?” He bargained.
“Yes anything.” I said with a genuine smile.
“Do whatever I say. If you don’t you will get punished. You will learn to live like this my little angel, you will love me.” He said in a caring but threatening tone. When he said I will love him I couldn’t help but think what if he is right?
“Ok I promise.” I said nodding my head. After I spoke those words he walked behind the chair and un-did all the nuts and bolts that were holding me captive. I stood up slowly while rubbing my sore arms, I turned around to face the man he motioned for me to follow him so I did. We walked up the stairs and into the house.
“This is your home as well, you may do as you like but if I need or want anything you will come running.” He said sternly to me, I nodded to say I understood. He then went on to explain a few more rules such as:
1. I must not leave the house.
2. I must not contact anyone at all.
3. I must always obey him
If I break any of them rules I’ll get punished. After he finished talking to me he said I was free to look around, he retreated up the stairs to what I’m supposing was his room. When he was out of sight I started my own little tour around the house.
After about looking round for an hour I concluded that this man was indeed rich and would take good care of me. I was starting to think I could get used to this; my life back home wasn’t that good anyways. I was sat on the living room couch when I heard him calling for me; his voice seemed to be coming from the kitchen. I stood up and walked towards him. When I walked in the kitchen I saw that he had sat the table and put our food out to eat. I sat down across from him and started to enjoy the meal. I was half way through when I remembered I didn’t know his name yet.
“Excuse me, but may I know your name?” I questioned shyly.
“Oh, how silly of me, my name is Danny.” He answered smiling. I nodded and then continued eating. When we were both finished he cleaned up our dishes and led us to his bedroom. When we got there he handed me some pyjamas and told me to get changed, I did just that. As I was getting changed I watched him get undressed and get in to bed. Once I was dressed he patted his side so I went and lay next to him. I was slightly nervous as to what he was going to do but his next words reassured me.
“Don’t worry darling, we won’t do anything till your ready. Just go to sleep.” He said whilst kissing my head. I nodded and rolled on to my side and let sleep take over. I could get used to this was the last thing I thought that night.
I woke up to the smell of bacon and eggs coming through the door. I sat up in bed and looked around trying to remember what had happened the night before, when I remember I started to panic but then I thought about how nice he is so I started to calm down. I got out of bed and made my way over to the closet, I opened the wooden door and peered inside at the variety of clothes, most of them girls’ clothes. I picked out a nice baby blue top and denim shorts. Once I was dressed I made my way to the kitchen.
I stood at the kitchen door for a couple of seconds just taking in the scène before me. Danny is stood in front of the stove cooking breakfast un aware of my presence. The smell is lovely. I walked over to the table and sat down on one of the wooden chairs.
“Good morning honey.” Danny said with his back still to me.
“Good morning. The food smells nice.” I complimented. He turned off the stove and put our breakfast on to plates. He walked over to the table and set my plate in front of me before he sat down opposite.
“I hope you enjoy your breakfast.” He said with a charming smile. I grabbed my fork and started to eat my breakfast. I have to admit he is a wonderful cook. After we both finished he stood up, took my hand and led me to our back yard. We didn’t go outside just stood at the glass double doors so we could see the view. Outside was a lovely golden beach, you could see right to the horizon. There were no clouds and the sun was shining giving the beach a perfect and peaceful glow. It was a lovely sight.
“It's lovely.” I spoke out loud. I turned my head to see Danny smiling as well.
“I know. Do you want to go lie in bed and watch TV?” he questioned me.
“Sure that would be nice.” I replied. He took my hand in his and led me up to our room. Once in the room he let go off my hand so I walked over to the bed and got comfy. He walked over to the TV that was placed on the wall opposite the bed. He stuck in a movie and came and joined me on the bed, once we were both comfy he pressed play on the remote.
After watching the film for about half an hour Danny started running his fingers up my leg and to the top of my shorts. He traced the top of my shorts with his fingers then started kissing my neck, I let out a soft moan and I felt him smile against my neck. While he was kissing my neck he pushed his hand into my shorts and stuck his fingers in me and began pleasuring me. Once again I let out a soft moan; he took his lips away from my neck and kissed me passionately on my lips. I put my hand on the top of his jeans and traced the top; I then slowly put my hand inside his jeans and started pleasuring him. He let out a moan which caused me to smile.
After about ten minutes of pleasuring each other we both couldn’t take it anymore; we took of all our clothes and Danny lay on top of me entering slowly. At first it was slow and sensuous but as we both started to climax the rhythm got faster until we both exploded; Danny rolled off me and began getting changed so I did the same. Once we were both dressed and could breathe steady we turned over the TV and put it on a news channel.
I gasped when I saw the Headline!
Local Girl Kidnapped By Mass Murder Danny Dweller!
When I realised they were on about me it clicked that Danny was going to kill me; but maybe I could change his ways? Make him love me and maybe let me go? When Danny noticed what I had seen he immediately turned off the TV.
“Don’t worry darling I won’t hurt you.” He said with a kind smile but I could see the evil glint in his eyes.
I quickly got of the bed and started running towards the front door but to my dismay Danny was faster than me he grabbed the bottom of my legs causing me to fall flat on my face. I twisted around so I was facing him his face was pure anger. I felt blood dripping from my nose but I didn’t dare to move.
“What the fuck do you think you’re doing?” He shouted.
I shook with terror, a thousand thoughts racing through my head at once, what was this man going to do to me. I couldn’t believe what I had done, what I thought my live could be all I wanted to do now was get away. He lent down and put his mouth to my ear.
“You are never going to get away. The only way you will leave here is in a body bag.” His breath sent chills down my spine, his words sounded rough and harsh. He was still holding my leg when he began to move away but just as he let go his free arm come up to the side of my face. All of a sudden the world went dark.
My heavy eyelids began to flutter open, the first thing I noticed was the room, it was dark but my eyes quickly adjusted. I had been in this room before; when I was first brought here Danny bound me to a chair in this room. With that thought I tried to move my arms. Once again my arms were tied behind my back and tied to the chair. Fuck how am I going to get out of this?
I tried to wiggle my hands free but to my dismay the rope didn't budge. I kicked my legs out in frustration-Hold on, my legs are free?-I stood up slowly balancing myself as the chair tired to weigh me down. Knowing I only had one way of getting free me did what I had to do.
I took a few steps forward then ran backwards so the chair and my back hit the concrete wall. The chair smashed into pieces freeing my arms, I let out a sigh of relief- that didn't hurt as much as I had expected- stretching my arms I made my way towards the wooden door. I put my hand on the brass handle and turned. To my surprise it opened. I walked out and the familiar smell of Danny filled my nose.
I glanced around the room to see I was stood in the kitchen. As I looked around the kitchen an object on the table caught my attention. I walked towards it. Danny must have wanted me to get free; on the table stood a plate of cookies, a glass of milk and a note. I read the note first
I'm sorry, please forgive me
Love - D .x."
I re-read it five times each time my feelings grew stronger. I took a seat next to the table and started eating the chocolate cookies. Each bit was as good as the first, the cookie would crumble and melt in my mouth, and it tasted like heaven. Just as I finished the last cookie Danny walked in with his head hanging down looking sorry for himself, he lifted his head to show pure sorrow on his face I smiled and immediately his face lit up. He walked over to where I was sitting and took the seat opposite me.
"Hello." he spoke like a child that had just been told off.
"How are you?" I asked wanting to avoid the awkward silence that would have followed.
"You really want to know?" He asked confused.
"Of course I do, silly." I replied while reaching over and entwining our fingers.
He smiled at me before answering "I'm better now you're here again." his smiled faltered then as if recapping a bad memory-which I knew he was- "sorry about earlier Angel. I thought you were going to leave Me." he finished and then I looked at him-I mean really looked at him- his eyes showed pain and sorrow with tears on the brink of overflowing. Then once again my feelings grew stronger.
"I'll never leave you Danny." And I meant every word.
1 Year and a half later.
“Search for local girl stopped! Girl presumed dead.”
I smiled as I watch the news presenter say the words I had been longing for. I have been living here now for just over 18 months. I have grown extremely fond of Danny. Thinking about that I looked down at my left hand, a diamond ring sat on my ring finger. Yes Danny proposed to me and I said yes-you may think I have gone mad but I haven’t I do truly love him-I can’t remember allot about the night he popped the question but what I do remember was a lovely candle lit dinner with glasses of wine.
I got of the bed and turned off the TV before I ran down stairs to find Danny to tell him the good news. I ran right to the living room to find him sitting on the sofa reading, I walked up to him and poked his shoulder, he lifted his head which showed a confused look I couldn’t help it when my grin grew wider.
“Guess what I just saw on the news!!” I squealed while jumping up and down.
“Calm down angel.” he said trying to hold back a laugh. He stood up and put his hands on my shoulders to stop me bouncing.
“They have cancelled the search for me! We can move!” I yelled while jumping up and grabbing Danny into a hug. When he proposed he said that when the search stopped we would move to Rome to start a new life and get married.
“That’s great news.” he said smiling from ear to ear. “Go pack and we will leave tomorrow night. I’ll book the tickets now.” After he spoke those words he kissed me and then went off to get his laptop. Once again I jumped up and down and ran to our room to pack everything. I was so excited.
I sat in the car waiting for Danny to put the last bag in the boot. I heard the boot slam shut and watched as Danny walked round and hopped into the car. He turned towards me put his hand on my knee and smiled. I couldn’t help but smile back. He squeezed my leg then started the car and we were of, to the land of anywhere and freedom, I sighed and let my head rest against the cold window.
I woke up to a hand on my shoulder gently shaking me. I lifted my head of the window and looked around, we were in the middle of the woods with the sun shining down on the van, I didn’t recognise were we where.
“Where are we?” I asked confused.
“Don’t worry where we are. We are far away now no one will find us here.” he replied with a thurmphant smile.
I Un-buckled my seat belt put my hands on the dash board and lifted myself up to look around. We were surrounded by trees and there wasn’t a house in sight. The trees were about 50ft tall but let in loads of sunlight.
“Where are we going to sleep and live?” I wondered.
“There’s a cabin just a few miles ahead. We will be there in a couple of minutes.” He said while starting the engine back up. The van jumped alive and we carried on along the dirt path. The van rocked with every step. Soon enough I saw the cabin ahead, strangely the lights were on, and did somebody live there? I looked at Danny confused but he seemed to not notice. Danny killed the engine when we were outside the cabin I could still see the light on inside.
“Does someone live here Danny?” I asked worried that they would recognise us and call the cops.
“No don’t worry. I must have left the light on when I last came here.” HE stated simply.
I nodded as an answer as I was lost for words. I followed Danny as he got out the van and opened the back door. I helped carry all of the boxes into our new house. I smiled the whole time we were unloading the van. Once all the boxes were out of the van and into the house I started to unpack; it didn’t take long as the cabin was already decorated and had lots of furniture. After we had unpacked I offered to make dinner but Danny refused and said he had something planned. All I did was nod, knowing not to argue.
We sat on our new brown leather sofa, which was nicely placed near the fire, watching The Lady and the Tramp on the plasma TV above the fire. Danny was sat up at the left hand side and I was resting my head under his arm practically lying down; I was cosy and contempt. When we were half way through watching the film someone knocked on the door making me jump up. I looked at Danny with a panicked look on my face; all he did was smile and walk towards the door.
I heard the front door open and the muffled sounds of Danny talking to someone. All i could do was sit and stare at the TV wondering who it was and what they wanted. After what felt like an eternity I heard the door shut with a quite bang.
I turned around to see Danny carrying a white letter, I gave him a confused look as he came to sit next to me.
"What's that?" I asked, nodding towards the letter in his hand, with a puzzled look on my face.
"It's a surprise, there's something outside that goes with what's in this letter." He said with a wide grin on his face.
I turned around, looked at the window then looked back at Danny then ran towards the window. I stared wide eyed at what was parked outside.
"What's that for!" I practically shouted.
"It's for you, its taking you into town so you can go on a shopping spree." He said proud of himself.
"With what money?" I said turning back to him.
He held up the white letter, "With this, It's a cheque it has £1,000, you have to go to the bank to get the money."
By this time I was jumping up and down with excitement but then the truth dawned on me.
"What if someone I know see's me?" I said as my face fell.
"If they do just ignore them. They won't do anything." he said while standing up and walking over to me. He wrapped me up in one of his hugs that makes me feel so safe. I looked up at him and kissed him on his lush lips.
"Go get ready Honey." He said nodding towards the bedroom. I nodded and walked off to get ready for my day out. Once I'm all set I grab my coat, keys and bag, kiss Danny goodbye and walk out the door towards my pink limo.
The limo pulls up outside a posh looking store called "Cliché". It had glass doors with gold around the edges and its walls were a cream pink colour.
I grab my bag thank the driver and get out. As I step onto the pavement I look around noticing that its quite busy in this area of town, I shrug my shoulders thinking nothing of it and wander into the store.
As I walked into the store the scent of new shoes filled my nose along with the warmth of the heaters. I sighed and relaxed I haven't been shopping in a while. As I walked around the store looking at all the designs of clothing paranoia slowly started to set in, it felt like I was being watched but every time I turned around to see who was there no one was, even though I knew no one I know shops in this area of town the feeling was still there.
After about twenty minutes of browsing I had finally decide on a outfit to buy. The outfit consisted of; a pale pink top with 'keep calm and shop' written on the front, a white skirt, black leggings and 6-inch white heels with pink studs on the toe. I took my new outfit to the till and waited for the cashier to add It all up.
"That will be £55, miss." The cashier told me with a smile on her pale face. I got my Gucci purse out of my bag and handed her the money then took my bags and headed towards the door.
Once out of the shop I took a minute to look at the busy shoppers around me. There was all kinds of people out today from the young to the old and family's to single parents. I didn't recognise any of them and thank fully no one recognised me.
The feeling of paranoia lifted as a I walked to my limo and saw the driver getting out to help me put my bags in the boot. He shut the boot door as I made my way to the passenger door, I opened the door and started to climb in, I stopped in my tracks when someone put a hand on my shoulder and made me turn around to face them. My mouth fell open at who was stood in front of me.
"Natasha, I thought I'd never see you again!" My fears just came true.
The hand on my shoulder pulled me around to face the person I thought I'd never see again. As I turned around my hand went into my pocket to grab my phone to text Danny.
As soon as I was facing the person In front of me they pulled me into a tight hug. I took this opportunity to text Danny.
*Danny come get me, quick! My sisters here help!!*
I typed as quick as I could then pulled away and stuck my phone in my pocket.
"Let's go get some coffee Nat and have a quick talk" Lucy said while grabbing my hand and dragging me to the nearest coffee shop.
As we walked into the coffee shop I kept a look out for Danny, I wish he would hurry up. We sat down at a table near a window and she began to talk about how her life was and how my brother and mother were doing. I listened and just nodded faking interest in what she was saying. After two minutes of her just going on about pointless things she asked the question I knew she was dying to ask.
"So Natasha, why don't you come home with me?" Lucy asked.
She held her breath as I thought of a nice way to say I don't want to.
"I'm happy where I am thanks. I'm going to go now Lucy." As I said her name I stood up and started to walk away.
As I walked out the small cafe I didn't turn round once But I heard Lucy following me. As I stepped out onto the street Danny was, stood next to our black SUV, waiting for me. He looked at me and smiled then he noticed Lucy following behind and grimaced. I shrugged my shoulders at him.
When I got to Danny I stood next to him and waited for my sister to get in front of us. Once she was stood in front of us she looked from me then to Danny about five times then it dawned on her.
"Is this the guy that kidnapped you?!?" Lucy shouted while reaching out to slap him. I grabbed her wrist just before the contact.
"Sh Lucy, no this is my fiancé, do you think I'd still be with him if I was held against my will?" I joked. I saw a small smile creep onto her face but she soon got rid of it.
"Natasha you can't stay with him, he's a murder! Please come back home!" She begged with a sad look plastered on her face.
"I'm sorry Lucy I'm happy where I am. I'm not coming home!" I replied rubbing her shoulder.
"Goodbye." I said while turning away and getting into the car. As we drove away I looked at her out the window she held her head high trying to hide the hurt but I could see the tears in her eyes.
The drive home was silent, we were both deep in our thoughts, I knew after this we would have to move again. We would probably have to move miles away so no one would be able to find us again. As I thought about moving I got excited but also scared because my picture had been shown all over the news anyone could recognise me. Suddenly the car came to a stop jolting me from my thoughts, we were home.
Twenty minutes after arriving home we were sat on our sofa discussing what just happened and what we should do now.
"We can't stay here anymore!" I told Danny with my head in my hands. "We don't know what could happen now." I continued knowing that we'd be moving again.
"I know darling, pack your bags and we will move again." He said in a kind voice. I nodded my head, stood up and went to my room to pack my bags.
An hour later we were all packed and setting off once again to somewhere new. I lent my head against the cool window and just watched the world pass by, in a matter of minutes my eyelids were fluttering shut and I was asleep.
When I awoke we were in a gas station 100 miles away from Scotland, our new home, Danny wasn't in the car so I just looked around where we were.
There we five filling up stations and one big shop where you had to pay. There were two other cars in front of us and one behind m, I turned in my seat to see the car behind once I looked I turned back to face the front as fast as I could hoping they didn't see me. There was a police car behind us, Danny wasn't back yet and we had to get away. I shut my eyes and waited for Danny.
A tap in my window made my eyes open wide a police man was stood there, I rolled down my window and asked what the problem was.
"What's your name, miss?" The police man asked nicely.
"Natasha." I answered simply.
"Where's the driver Natasha?" He asked me. I explained to him that Danny was in the shop paying for the gas we bought and that everything was okay.
"We'd like to talk to him. Could you come sit in our car while we speak to him?" He asked kindly, I agreed not wanting to look suspicious, I climbed out of our car and walked to the police car. I saw Danny come out of the shop and look at me with a panicked look on his face. Danny came over to the police car and asked the officer what was wrong. The officer nodded his head as if he was confirming what he already knew.
"Danny your under arrest for kidnapping Natasha Wright. You have the right to remain silent..." By the time the officer was saying that he had turned Danny round and put him in handcuffs. Tears fell from my eyes as Danny was put into the back of the car and locked in. The officer then came round to me sat me in the passengers side of the police car and locked that door as well. The officer got into the drivers seat put the key into the engine and set off to the nearest station.
"Your safe now Natasha." The officer said to me as we pulled into the station.
"I was safe before. I don't want to go home officer." I cried as he got Danny out of the car and took him into the station. The officer then came back out, unlocked my door and lead me into the station. He sat me down in a room and told me to wait.
I sat in that small, cold room waiting for the officer to come and let me go. I knew they would ask me for my statement but all I could think about was losing Danny, What would I do without him? I sat with my head in my hands on the cold metal table that was placed in front of me. The more I thought about losing him, the more my eyes watered, how was i going to deal with losing him? The door swung open snapping me out of my thoughts, I lifted my head out of my hands to see the officer sitting down in front of me. He put his notepad and pen onto the table all while keeping a straight face, how could he be so calm when my world is falling apart. He crossed his hands in front of him and stared at me as he spoke.
"Tell me everything. Starting from when he abducted you." The officer stated. I flinched at his tone and the use of the word 'abducted' I wasn't 'abducted, I could of left if I wanted to. The officer forced a cough suggesting that I start speaking. I looked at the table and started my story.
"..then you showed up and took me away from him!" I cried at the end of my story. The officer shook his head and then began to speak.
"Thank you for your statement. Your family will be here to pick you up shortly." He nodded at me and began to get up to leave.
" I don't want to go home, I want to stay with Danny, I need him." I sobbed. The officer shook his head again, sighed, then sat back down.
"Listen to me Natasha, Danny is a bad man, he has killed girls like you before, you weren't safe with him." He stated like it was a fact. It wasn't true I was safe with him, he loves me. When I didn't reply the officer shook his head in aspiration and left. I was once again sat in this empty room with just my thoughts to accompany me.
After what seemed like a decade the door opened slowly, as if pushed by a infant, to revel my mother. She stood by the open door with her mouth hanging open and tears pooling her eyes. I should be welling up seeing my mother for the first time in 18 months but I was numb, all I could think about was how I've lost Danny. She ran to me and flung her arms around me in what I suspect was a hug but it didn't feel safe or warm like Danny's did, I sighed and stood up to return the hug.
She pulled away and looked at me with wide eyes as if she was seeing if I was really me. She smiled took my hand and started leading me out of the station. As we walked through the station all the officers were saying goodbye, I nodded at them in return. As we got to the entrance I stopped and turned around to look around the station, all I saw was men in uniform, I sighed and began walking out. My mum led me towards a blue BMW five series, it was shining and probably brand new. She took me round to the passengers side opened the door and let go of my hand to allow me to climb in. (she must think I'm incapable of doing anything for myself) I fastened my self in and watched as my mother got in the drivers side and started the car. I took a deep breath to steady my heart beat and to stop my self crying. I slumped down in my seat and fall asleep, it was going to be a long drive.
I woke up to a hand gently pushing me. I lifted my head of the window and rubbed my stiff neck. "Danny? Where are we?" I asked still half asleep.
"Honey, we are home." My mother stated, you could hear the hurt in her voice.
I nodded in response and started getting out off the car. My mother followed and then she led me into the house. The furniture looked new and it seemed that the whole house was colour schemed, black and white, how boring? As I was looking round my mother was bringing in bags of shopping.
"Your room is upstairs on the left, go take a look? I will bring all your new clothes up in a bit." She announced once she had finished and closed the front door.
I sighed and just nodded and made my way to my room. The upstairs was the same as downstairs, all black and white, it was like being in a silent movie. I hated it, I wanted to go home. I opened my bedroom door to see; a double bed in the middle of the room, a desk and laptop in the far corner and behind the door was a small book shelf. Luckily enough this room wasn't black and white, the wallpaper was a dark purple and the carpet was a dark pink, not my first choice of colours but at least it's better then black and white.
I walked further into the room so I could sit on the bed. Just as I sat down my mother came in with four shopping bags, my new clothes, what do I need new clothes for anyway I'm not staying here. She placed the bags on the floor and started speaking.
"Your closet is behind that door, it's a walk in closet. I'm going to start making dinner so just come down when you're done filling your closet." She said smiling then she walked out closing the door behind her. I looked back and fourth between the bags and the closet about five times before I sighed and started putting the clothes away.
It took me just under a hour to put everything away, once I was done I rubbed my hands together in satisfaction, I shut the closet door and started making my way downstairs. I hadn't eaten for a while so the smell off food set my stomach of rumbling. I walked into the dinning room sat down and tucked into my pasta.
"I'm going to go to bed now, I've had a long day." I said while yawning.
"Okay sweetheart. Goodnight!" She said while kissing my cheek. I walked out off the room and up to my bedroom. I wiped away the kiss and got changed into my pyjamas. Once I was in bed all I could do was toss and turn, I couldn't stop thinking about losing Danny, every time I closed my eyes I would just see the officers taking him away. How long will I have to feel like this?
"Don't take Danny away, Please let him stay, I need him!" I screamed at the top of my voice. I fell to my knees and held my head in my hands while I sobbed, I could feel someone standing behind me, they put their hand on my shoulder which jolted me awake.
It took me a couple of seconds to take in my surroundings and realize where I was. The light was shining through the partially open curtains bringing in some light to the dim room. I sat up in bed thinking about the events of the previous day, so much happened; it almost feels like a dream. As I sat there thinking, the harsh reality hit me I'm never going to see Danny again, I knew for a fact the police where never going to let him go. If I wanted to see him I would have to visit him in prison.
*A month later*
"We, the jury, find Danny Dweller guilty of two counts of first degree murder and multiple counts of kidnapping!" The main juror spoke proudly.
" I sentence Danny Dweller to 35 years in prison without the possibility of parole." The judge boomed as he hit his hammer on the table. I fell to my knees as soon as I heard his name being said. I sat there with my head in my hands chanting to myself that my life was over.
My mother put her hand on my shoulder attempting to calm me down, it’s did no good, She bent down to my level and whispered in my ear " Darling, he's a bad man, He's getting what he deserves."
As she spoke those words I shot up making her jump back in surprise. "Danny is not a bad person! He is the most caring and sweet person I have ever met. He doesn't deserve this!" I screamed at her making the whole court star at me with wide eyes. I could hear them all murmuring and saying "She's insane" "What a drama queen".
I looked around the court room everyone was staring at me; the judge, the jurors, the witnesses and even the prison guards that where taking Danny away had stopped to witness my outburst. As I looked over at the prison guards Danny gave me a sad smile as if to say just leave and move on with your life. There was no way I'm moving on I love him.
"You all think Danny is a bad person, You all think that because he apparently murdered the other girls that he's a bad person, Well he's not! If he was he would have killed me a long time ago. I love Danny Dweller!" I scream at the top of my voice, I saw everyone’s eyes go wide and their mouths fall open. I blew a kiss to Danny then I turned and left the court room.
The whole way home all I could think was how stupid everyone was and how quick they jumped to a conclusion. I knew they would all be gossiping about me but I didn't care, they didn't know the real Danny. As I walked home I promised my self that i would go visit him every week as much as I could; no matter who tried to stop me.
After about half an hour I decided it was time to return to my parents house. I refuse to call it home, it's not MY home! The walk to their house was tiring, the wind kept blowing me backwards and freezing my face, but I finally got there. I put my hand on the door handle and pushed the door open. I walked into the house and slowly shut the door behind me. I could hear talking and sobbing coming from the living room so I creeped towards the entrance of the room. I stopped walking as soon as I released they where talking about me. I stopped just before the entrance and listened in to their conversation.
"What are we going to do about her?" I recognized this voice to be my mothers. She was the one sobbing.
"I'm not sure honey. We could admit her?" My dad replied worriedly. 'Admit me!' I screamed in my head growing angry with them once again.
"We couldn't do that, Could we? It's not her fault she isn't the same person again." My mum replied.
"It's up to you what we do about her. Admitting her might cure her?" He questioned.
"If it will cure her I think its the best thing to do, for all of us." She replied. She had stopped sobbing by this point. I was so angry with them i couldn't help but bursting in. My parents looked up at me shocked. My mums eyes were red and puffy from crying and my dad had his hand on her back.
"How much of that did you hear?" My dad questioned looking at my mum worriedly.
"All of it! How dare you say you can 'cure' me I haven't got some kind of disease! I love Danny, he's my life, I will wait for him until he gets out of prison. I'm running away from you so called parents!" I burst out crying and ran up to my room to pack my things.
I put my suite case onto my bed and packed everything i owned. Really I didn't have much just a few clothes and some perfume. I closed my suite case, picked it up and started making my way out of the house. I got to the front door and turned around taking one last look around. My parents were stood in front of me; My mum crying and my dad with his arm around her in an attempt to comfort her. They haven't even tired to stop me leaving. I sighed, opened the door and walked out shutting the door behind me.
The cold air hit me as I began walking to the bus stop. Reality suddenly hit me. I was running away from my parents, I had lost Danny; but only for now I was going to get him back.
I stood at the bus stop watching the trees dance in the slight breeze. I had no idea where I was going but I did know it has to be near the prison Danny is been held hostage. As I stood waiting I tired to remember where Danny was been held I knew it wasn't to far because I walked home. After what felt like half an hour the bus strolled to a stop in front of me. The doors opened slowly allowing me to enter. I stepped in cautiously watching where i was steping so I didn't trip.
"Where you heading to ma'ma?" The bus driver questioned smiling. I looked around the bus a few times before answering.
"The county prison please." The bus driver gave me a questionng look but then shurrged his shoulders and pressed some buttons on his counter.
"That will be £2.80 ma'ma" He stated. I handed him the money got my ticket then walked to the back of the bus so that i was away from everyones peircing eyes.
The bus jerked to a start then slowly rolled forward. I could hear the people on the bus whispering about me and my true love. I blocked them out and just watched as the trees and grassland floated past.
After about twenty minutes the bus jerked to a stop outside the county prison. I grabbed my bag and walked off the bus. The people kept whispering about me but I just shrugged it off. Once off the bus I walked to the gates of the prison.
The gates were about six foot high with a door on the right hand side. There was a buzzer next to door, I hovered my finger over the button contemplating whether to press it or not, I eventually pressed the buzzer.
"Hello, how can I help?" A voice spoke over the speaker.
"Erm, Im here to visit Danny?" I spoke in an unsure tone.
"Visiting times are over." The voice spoke back.
"When can I come visit?" I questioned.
"Next visiting hours are at 9am tomorrow morning." The voice answered then I heard a click. They must have gone.
I looked down at my watch, it read 10:00pm I had eleven hours until I could visit my soul mate. I turned away from the gates and took in my surroundings. About five feet in front off me was the road and th bus stop. On the other side of the road were a couple of houses. I walked towards the road and look up both sides. Houses covered the land; there had to be a hotel somewhere.
I stepped off the path and headed to the house right in front of me. Once outside the door I brought my hand up and knocked. My heart started to race as I heard rustling and movement from behind the door. I saw the knob turn and I held my breath.
"Hello?" A young lady opened the door with a puzzled look on her face.
"Hi, sorry for bothering you this evening but please could you tell me where the nearest hotel is?" I questioned all in one breath. The lady looked me up and down and nodded.
"If you go to the road and turn right there's one a couple of miles up the road." She said smiling.
"Thank you, have a nice evening." I said and walked towards the road. I looked right and all I could see where houses. I shurgged my shoulders and began walking to my unknown destination.
I carried on down the road for about half an hour before I came to a hotel. I stood looking at the hotel. It was about four floors high and painted red and white. I walked towards the wooden double door, pushing them open with both hands, I walked through.
I walked into a large room with a desk in the middle, the full room was covered in red carpet, I walked towards the round desk. On the desk were leaflets and a small bell with a sign saying "Ring for attetion" I pressed the bell and waited. After about two minutes a women came to the desk. I looked her up and down; she was wearing a white blouse with a black skirt and black heels, around her neck was a red tie.
"Hello, I'd like to book a room please?" I questioned her.
"Sure, how many nights would you like to stay?" She questioned while looking at a notebook.
"A week please?" I questioned unsure.
"Yeah thats fine, that will be £70 please." She stated while writing in her notebook. I took out my purse, counted some notes and handed her the money. She counted it, smiled and got a key out of a draw.
"Just go up them stairs and its the first door on your right." She said while handing me the key, I said thank you and turned and walked the way she said.
Once in my room I put my suite case on the bed and looked around. Infront off the bed was a flat screen tv and a cabinet underneath it. To the left off the tv was a door, I opened the door and behind was a bathroom. I walked to the bedroom and sat on the bed; contemplating my next move.
I took my notebook out of my bag and opened it to the first page. I wrote on the top line 'Plan'. Now I just had to think of what I was going to do.
I began making a list of things I need to do:
1. Visit Danny and talk to him about escaping.
2. Plan the escape.
3. Get him out then run away.
Thats my plan done. Short and sweet. I put my notebook away, unpacked all my stuff then got into bed. That night I fell asleep with a smile on my face. I couldn't wait to see Danny again and talk to him about escaping. My heart filled with hope of him getting out.
I woke up the next morning excited that I was going to visit Danny in prison and talk to him about escaping. I had my hopes up that he would say it was a good idea. While I got ready to go I thought about what I was going to say to him and how he was possibly going to react. It took me about half an hour to get ready and leave to catch the bus to the prison. The bus pulled up, the doors swung open and I stepped in. People stopped their conversations just to look and gaze at me, mouths hung open. I shook my head and ignored them; just because they were jealous of my love for Danny.
"Ticket to the County Prison please." I stated to the driver.
"That'll be £2.80" He grunted.
I handed him the change snatched my ticket out of the machine and walked to sit down. I sat there staring out of the window for the whole drive. People around me were murmuring to each other. It made me feel uneasy. Eventually we arrived outside the county prison, i stood up grabbed my bag and walked off the bus. I stood outside the gates the staring at the huge building in front of me. This place was full of criminals, Danny didn't belong here, he wasn't a criminal. I walked up to the intercom and rang the buzzer.
"Hello, How may I help you?" A voice questioned.
"I'm here to visit Danny." I stated unsure of what to say.
"I'll buzz you in, please make your way to the reception once inside." The voice stated and the gates started open. I walked in amazed at the size of the prison. I headed towards the reception just as the voice stated. Once at the reception a friendly looking lady greeted me.
"Hi, I'm here to see Danny." I nervously said.
"Please take a seat and I will get one of the guards to bring him down." She said pointing towards the waiting area. I sat down and looked around.
I sat facing the reception; there was a wooden desk which the receptionist sat at, to the right of that whee the double glass doors and to the left was a vending machine. The walls were painted a light blue and then floor had tiles to match. It gave the place a sad aroma. I looked to my left and a bit down the hall was a set of bars, blocking anyone from getting further down, I saw a prison guard walking towards me. He stopped at the bars, unlocked them then carried on towards me.
"You're here to see Mr.Dweller, Is that right?" He asked sternly.
"Yes." I whispered.
"Follow me." He stated and started walking away. I leaped to my feet and started following him. He took me through the bars and to a little room that was on the right just after the bars.. He sat me down then walked back out of the room. The room was the same shade of blue and had no windows to let in daylight. There was a metal table in front of me and another metal chair on the other side.
I heard the door open behind me, to afraid to turn around i just kept looking forward, two people came into the room and walked towards the other side of the table. Once in my view I saw the guard who escorted me to this room and with him was Danny. The guard sat Danny down, fastened his handcuffs to the metal chair and then left the room. I just sat there looking at Danny not knowing what to say. He didn't smile or show any emotion; I thought he would of been happy to see me.
"Why are you here?" He questioned. Why wouldn't I be here? I thought to myself.
"I'm here to see you silly." I said smiling. "I can help you escape!" I said excitedly.
"Don't be daft. I can't escape here. Why would I want to anyway?" He stated still showing no emotion.
"To be with me." I said losing hope.
"Why would I want to be with a slut like you?" He questioned I could hear the hatred in his voice. Tears pricked at my eyes.
"You love me, Don't you?" I said on the verge of tears. What had gotten into him?
"Of course." He stated. "Why wouldn't I love someone who got me locked up? Free meals for the rest of my life and I don't even have to pay rent." He sarcastically said. He didn't love me anymore, he blamed me for getting him arrested.
"But, But." I couldn't think of any other reasons why he should be with me. I did get him arrested, Its my fault he's in prison,I don't deserve him.
"I should of killed you when i had the chance. I never loved you." He stated, still showing no emotion. The tears were rolling down my face now. How could he say that after the way he treated me.
"I never want to see you again. You're just another little whore." His words were laced with venom. I quickly stood up and ran out of the small room. I ran past the reception and out of the gates. I stood at the bus stop tears pouring down my face. The bus pulled up, i bowed my head in shame, I showed him my ticket then went to sit down. I cried the whole journey back to the shabby hotel.
Once back at the hotel I went straight to my room and laid on my bed. I couldn't stop thinking of what he had just said to me. The tears carried on coming. All of a sudden I got the urge to vomit. I leaped out of bed and ran to the bathroom where I spilled my guts in the toilet. I then began to panic. I realised i hadn't got my period for over two months. I ran to my suitcase, pulled out a pregnancy test and ran back to the bathroom to take it.
I waited five minutes then the results were ready. I prayed that i wasn't pregnant. I turned over the test and read the results. I dropped to my knees and began crying all over again.
I was pregnant!
I had no clue what I was going to do now. I had no idea how to raise a child and I did not want to be a single parent. I thought about telling Danny but he wanted nothing to do with me. I had one choice and one choice only. To move back home. I packed my bags, left the motel then got the next bus back to my home town.
Once the long journey was over i stepped of the bus and rushed to my parents house. I had no idea how they were going to react and I hoped they would accept me and let me back in and help me. I stood outside the front door contemplating whether I should knock or not. I lifted my hand and lightly knocked on the wooden door. I heard footsteps and people talking then the door opened The women who answered let out a gasp and pulled me into a tight hug. I felt like i was going to suffocate but i didn't push her away. I kind of felt safe in this woman's arms, in my mothers arms.
I pulled back from the hug and looked my mother in her eyes. She was smiling but her face soon dropped. A mother can tell when something is wrong I suppose. I sighed. " I need to talk to you."
My mother nodded and moved out of the doorway so i could walk in. I walked into the living room and sat on the sofa waiting for my mother to sit down. I watch her walk in the room then she sat next to me on the sofa. I took a few breaths to calm myself before I told her. Once I was calm i began telling her about Danny and the fact that I was now pregnant. Her face went from sad to shocked. She put her hand on me lap in an attempt to comfort me.
“I’ll help you look after it darling. You're not alone.” My mother replies.
“Thank you. I’m quite tired, Is it alright if i go to bed for a bit?” I question.
“Of course you can. I’ll take your bag up, you follow.” I nod as she stands and grabs my bag. I follow behind her thankful i’ll be able to sleep.
Once in my room I unchanged and climbed into bed. I laid there for a few moments with my hand on my stomach. I have a baby growing inside me. I couldn't help but smile at that fact. Everything was going to change and fast. Before I knew it I was asleep with a smile on my face.
*nine months later*
I stood in the nursery admiring the new furniture and freshly painted walls. My mother converted the spare room into the baby's nursery. The baby is due any day now and I'm beginning to get both excited and scared. I decided to go and speak to my mother. I turned away from the nursery and made my way to the living room. I walked in, saw my mother, then sat next to her.
"Mom, I'm scared." I admitted.
"That's natural darling." She put her hand on my knee. "You will feel better once the baby is here and you adjust to this new lifestyle."
I sighed. " I still think about what Danny did to me. Even though he hurt me I still miss him. I know I can do this without him though." I admitted. My mother sighed and shook her head.
"He was a bad man honey. You're better off without him." She patted my knee as I nodded my head in agreement. All of a sudden I felt my legs get wet then a sharp pain went through me. I started crying as my mother rang the ambulance. It was time.
After eight hours of painful labour my baby was finally here. It was a baby girl. I named her Naomi. I sat in the hospital bed, exhausted, waiting for them to bring Naomi to me. I saw a nurse pushing an incubator type thing towards my room. She walked in and put the incubator next to my bed. She took Naomi out and handed her to me.
I held her for the first and looked down at her face. Then it hit me. She looked similar to Danny. The man who stole my life, abused me and gave me a baby I never wanted. Everything hit at once. I still love Danny but I felt a sudden hatred for him and this baby.
