Chapter 4: No more disobedience
As I sat on the floor, holding my bloody mouth, AJ was sweeping up the glass from the broken bottle.
His golden eyes would glance at me every few seconds.
I wiped my eyes that had to have been red from my intense crying.
Once AJ had the dustpan, he swept the glass, stained with my blood into it and threw it away in the small black garbage can that was right next to the stove.
Afterwards, he walked over to me and stood above me.
I slowly looked up at him.
He got down on his knees beside me and grabbed a few locks of my hair and twirled it around in his fingers. “I don’t like hurting you, Renee but if you talk back to me, or disobey me in any way, I’m going to have to. Understand?”
My jaw was in so much pain, I couldn’t talk.
He grabbed my cheeks in his hand and squeezed, putting painful torture into my jaw. I tried to pull away but AJ kept me in place, keeping his golden eyes locked on mine. “Can you obey me, Renee?” He asked.
I didn’t answer. I hated him. Everything about him. Even that gorgeous face that I knew was now a mask, behind it was an ugly monster that was sadistic.
“I-” My jaw hurt as I tried to talk so I just kept quiet.
AJ took his hand away from me and narrowed his eyes at me. “What? Talk to me.”
“It- hurts.” My voice went a five pitches higher.
He nodded. “Sometimes there will be consequences.” He said.
His finger traced down my cheek, to my bruised jaw, down my lips. He leaned over and gently brushed his lips against mine and smiled showing his dimples. “Go to the bathroom and clean yourself up…okay?” He asked.
I swallowed and slowly nodded.
He grabbed my hand and helped me to my feet. Then he led me through the kitchen and back upstairs.
He opened the bathroom door for me and I walked in.
I shut the door and leaned against it. There was a lock on it. Thank god. I locked the door and heard nothing on the other side.
Maybe now I can try to figure out a plan to get the hell out of here.
I leaned against the door and my breathing was heavy with fear and pain. I walked over to the sink and looked into the mirror at my swollen jaw and lips and the dried up blood coming out of my nose.
A weird taste filled my mouth and I opened my achy jaw and spit a mouthful of blood out and coughed up some more.
I spit out my last mouthful into the white sink. He can clean the shit up himself if he wants. I don’t care.
I looked back into the mirror. I looked paler than usual. I didn’t look like Renee Adele Foster anymore. I looked like some weak girl who let some hot guy push her around and hit her. I shut my eyes and wiped my tears.
Why am I crying? I should be looking for a way out.
But there were no windows in here.
The room gave me butterflies. Not in a good way. In a nervous, dangerous way. I suddenly felt claustrophobic as reality settled in. I wasn’t getting out of here.
I sighed and ran my fingers through my hair.
I grabbed a white towel that was hanging up on the rack, and wet it with warm water. I wiped my tears and the dried up blood and the blood dripping out of my mouth, down my chin. I didn’t spend too much time on wiping the blood from my jaw. I left it alone because it hurt too damn much.
I sighed and swallowed hard as I slowly unlocked the door and peeked out of the bathroom.
Great, he was still standing there.
“Let me go.” I said in a mumbled voice. My jaw furiously stung.
“Why?” I had to keep my responses down to one syllable.
“I should explain when you’re in a more suitable state.”
I would be in a more suitable state if you wouldn’t have used a bottle to hit me. I would have at least slightly okay if you’d had used your hand.
I stared at him and he smirked slightly. “I will explain why I’m gonna keep you but first, I want you to shower and I’ll have clothes ready for you when you get out.”
Clothes? It’s about time.
“Fine.” I whispered. I turned to go back into the bathroom and he followed me inside. I stared at him in fear.
He’s going to stand here and watch?
“I’m just showing you where the clean towels are.” He said opening a cherry wood cabinet. He handed me an olive green towel and gave me a kiss on the lips. “Don’t take too long.” And he disappeared out of the room and shut the door.
I didn’t feel safe. I was scared. Scared more than anything. I left my house thinking that if I’m not scared of my dad, I’m not scared of anyone. Boy, have god burst my bubble.
I switched on the hot and cold switches and stepped in the mostly hot water. I let the water run through my hair, down my body. I washed and my feet, my legs, between my legs, my stomach, torso and my hair.
I stepped out and wrapped the towel around myself. I stepped out of the bathroom and there he was waiting in the hallway.
“Your clothes are laying on my bed. Afterwards, come downstairs. Into the kitchen.”
I walked down the hallway to his bedroom and closed the door. I went up to the bed to find nothing but a pair of dark red panties that I packed before I left home.
Wait….where’s the rest of my clothes?
He didn’t just expect me to wear this did he?
I looked around, going through all his drawers in his dresser. Not one piece of clothing. He most likely cleared everything out on purpose.
I looked back to the bed. At the one piece of clothing he got from my backpack.
He was really expecting me to wear only that.
Why does he have to be this way. He use to turn me on but now he just intimidates me. And I think he likes to humiliate me.
I swallowed as I dropped the towel and grabbed the panties and put them on. That’s all I had on. I had the towel. But of course I knew that’s not what he wanted.
He wanted me exposed to him. I never been naked, nor even half naked in front of a guy before.
I slowly went to the door and pulled it open. I peeked down the hallway and saw no one. I covered my breasts with my arms and slowly walked down the hallway.
I walked down the stairs and peeked into the kitchen. AJ locked eyes with me immediately.
I walked in and looked down, not able to look at him completely.
“Take your arms down, Renee.” He ordered.
I didn’t want to. I shook my head.
He sighed and stood up. He came over to me and grabbed onto my hands. But I refused to show him all of me.
“Renee, let’s not make what just happened an hour ago worst. I can think of worst to do.”
I didn’t want worst done. I was still in pain.
I let him take my arms down and he looked down at my breasts and then into my eyes. “You’re more beautiful than I imagined.” He smiled and brushed his lips against my cheek and then softly kissed my lips. “Now have a seat so we can talk.” He said. He turned away from me and sat down in the seat next to the wall that separated the kitchen and living room.
I came over, careful to keep myself exposed and sat down. I stared down at the floor. I couldn’t meet his eyes. It was too embarrassing.
“Look at me, Renee.”
“Look at me.” He said more firmly and I finally met his eyes.
He studied me for a second. “I’ve seen you before that night I saved you from Joey. I’ve watched you. Over and over again and every time I saw you, the same thing popped into my mind. ‘I got to have her’.” He shook his head and looked down to the floor and then back to me.
“You’re wondering why I only gave you panties to wear.”
I sniffed and tucked my hair behind my ear.
“I like to make my relationships interesting. You are going to be my….I guess you can call yourself my pet or my toy. And I knew that you would be just that when I first saw you.”
He ran his fingers through his hair brownish, reddish hair. “I can’t even describe how fucking attracted to you I am.” He shook his head and sighed softly. “And I know you’re a teenager. Only a teenager. I’m twenty five and it’s wrong but,” He looked at me. “Now I’m looking at you and I doubt if I’ll ever let you go.”
“You can’t have me.” I whispered. It hurt my jaw as I said the words.
AJ smirked, showing his dimples. “I can take you to a whole other level. To places you never been before.”
Places? Like where? Paris? Egypt? China?
AJ leaned forward. “When I say that, I don’t mean to actual places.” It was like he could read my mind.
He sighed softly. “I want to show you what if feels like to come. Over and over again. To show you what it’s like to orgasm so hard, you’ll be in tears and to show you how good it feels to receive pain…especially from me.”
Whoa….whoa….wait a minute…..what?
What? He’s talking about having sex with me? Is he crazy? I’m a virgin! I don’t want to lose it to someone who is a psychopath!
“S-Sex?” I muttered the word.
AJ’s golden eyes stayed on mine as he nodded.
I shook my head. “I’m a virgin.”
“We can fix that.” He said, not leaving my eyes yet. I swallowed deeply.
“Now what I did, with that bottle, I didn’t want to do it but you cannot back talk me, Renee. I have a serious anger problem.”
He could have warned me that he had an anger problem.
“And normally, my punishment would be bearable but with the problem I have, my punishments are…”
“Very harsh and cruel.”
Tell me about it.
“I will not inflict a lick of pain on you as long as you do as I say. Can you handle that, Renee?”
I just stared at him. I couldn’t acccept the fact that this was my reality. That any of this was real. It couldn’t have been real.
I’m his pet…his toy…and he has plans to have sex with me.
“Can you handle that?” He asked again.
I slowly nodded.
He gave me a small smirk. “Good.”
“Jodie.” I breathed.
His eyebrow raised. “Excuse me?”
“Where’s my…sister?” I sniffed.
AJ looked into my eyes. He licked his lips and sighed. “She’s with my brother.”
With his brother?
“She’s safe, Renee. My brother wouldn’t hurt her. I asked him to keep her while I kept you.”
Oh no. And beside from Jodie being with someone I didn’t know or trusted, if I escape, he and his brother would probably keep her and put her in the position I’m in right now.
“But I didn’t lie when I said she was at the mall. I sent her off and my brother went to get her. She’s in a good environment. Trust me.”
You told me to trust you before and now look what happened.
I wiped my nose with the back of my hand. More blood. Damnit. “So what am I?” I asked staring down at the blood on the back of my hand.
“What do you mean?”
“I’m your slave?” I asked.
AJ narrowed his eyes as if studying the meaning. “You’re mine. That’s all you need to know.”
