The floor creaked and I sat up on the couch and searched the darkness of the house, but I couldn't see anything, the light from the bathroom cast more shadows and the darkness seemed thicker.
My heart pounded, fear shot through my veins as I heard shifting on the floor.
"Rylie is that you?" I asked but I knew it wasn't him he never used the back door, always the front and he always announced himself when coming into the house. Tears prickled my eyes as I was becoming more scared.
Something fell and crashed to the floor and I jumped
"Shit shit shit" I sighed at the sound of Rylies voice
"You scared the shit out of me!" I yelled
"Sorry the front doors light wasn't on and I thought you were sleeping I didn't want to freak you out"
"Are you fucking kidding me!" I went to the kitchen to where he was standing as he turned the light on and started picking up the glass to the vase he had knocked over
"sorry I really didn't mean to scare you Piper, oh crap your crying!" he came over to me after dropping the glass into the waste basket. "I'm sorry, goddamn it I was just trying to drop this off and get out before I woke you up, I wasn't thinking" he handed me an envelope and I popped it open and took out the tickets for the art show that was next week in the city.
"you could have given them to me tomorrow when you picked me up" I wiped my eyes and set the tickets on the counter
"Yea fuck" he ran his hand through his curly hair and sighed "I'm really sorry I must have scared you to death"
"its fine but you need to go home and I need sleep"
"if you slept in your bed you would get a better sleep you know"
"Night Rylie see you tomorrow"
He gave me a small hug and I couldn't help but wrap my arms around his neck hugging him tighter, he had really frightened me and knowing that I wasn't kidnapped was a good feeling, I let him go and he ducked out the door and jumped over the small fence and went over to his yard and went inside his house. I shut and locked the door.
I glanced at my bedroom and went into it, I went to my bathroom and looked in the mirror, and shook my head, I was being silly no one was coming to get a nobody, nobody even knew where I lived I also didn't talk to anyone, there was no reason anyone was coming after me. I splashed some water on my face.
The back door swung and crash loudly on the side of the house making me jump and let out a bubble of a scream, the door shut.
"Rylie what is it now? I think you need to stop abusing your right of having a key!" I said as I walked out of the room bathroom and smacking into a chest that was much bigger than Rylies, I glanced up and screamed, blue eyes met mine and I stumbled backwards and fell, I pushed myself up and ran quickly towards the back door my feet slipping on the hardwood.
I scrambled for the door, I grabbed the door handle and twisted and yank at it, it starts to open when the man collides with me shoving me forwards and firmly shutting the door, his body pressed against my back and then his hand reached in front of me and flipped the dead bolt and that's when the tears started running down my face.
"Please don't do this" I whispered. I could hear his breathing, smell his cologne and feel the warmth from his body.
"from now on you don't get to ask for anything" he whispered back against my ear and I shivered as thick ropes of fear tightened around me.
"Please" I begged, his arm wrapped around my waist and I tried pulling away but he was too close and the door wouldn't move. A hand went to my face and a cloth place over my nose and mouth, the wood on the door started to spin over the edges of the cloth, dizziness had me spinning as my vision started spotting.
"Fear my voice" was the last thing I heard before everything went black.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The world was foggy when I open my eyes, I was in a dark space only a few dim lights lit the room and my head was pounding.
"You will feel dizzy and have a head ache" a different male voice said, he sounded older
I tried shaking my head to clear it when liquid touched my lips and I swallowed the cold water.
"I think I made it pretty fucking clear no one was touching her!" it was the voice I recognised
"She needs water Jason, like all the others, she needs water to wake up her head is pounding and her head cloudy so calm the fuck down"
"Wheres Jeb?" Jason asked, mood switching
"He will be back here in a few minutes"
"Mother?" Jason asked and with that there was commotion upstairs, shuffling on the floor above us. The basement door opened and the sound of heels came down the stairs and a beautiful woman came down and when her eyes met mine she looked furious.
"How dare you!" she screamed and went over to Jason and her hand connected with his face in a sharp smack then she ran up stairs and both the men followed her quickly and the door was slammed shut, I listened quietly trying to figure out where I was, how to get away and how to play them against each other, anything that would help get me out of here alive.
"You promised me, all three of you promised no dark hair ones!" the woman screamed
"She is... tasty I didn't think about it I'm sorry" Jason said he too was yelling
"I want her up here and I want it now!" she yelled, a few seconds later the door opened up and Jason ran down and came over to me
"come on babe" he reached down and grabbed me by my arms and I was lifted off the couch I was on and he started shoving me up the stairs one by one.
When we reached the top she came at me and grabbed me by the hair and hauled me over to the island in the middle of the kitchen, she slammed me down onto the smooth surface and yanked up my shirt exposing my back.
"they brought you home when they knew I would be angry, I get to mark you first" she hissed and before I knew what was happening a sharp poke was on my back and I struggled under her as she moved the object back and forth and I screamed at the pain, she twisted more and I bucked trying to get away from her.
She let me up and pushed me towards Jason who caught me and held me much too close to his body, in her hand was metal skewer stick that was now covered in blood, my blood.
Everyone was quiet until another guy came in and looked shocked to see me there.
"Piper this is Loren, my wife" the older man said pointing to the woman who had just stabbed me, my was back on fire "these are my twin boys, Jason and Jebson" he pointed at both the men standing next to me "I'm Richard, now you are in our house and that means nothing is for you, my sons have needs and you will be theirs until they tire of you, then I will take you out back and kill you, understand?" Richard said and I blinked a few times, this was crazy they were all crazy!
"now darling lets go down stairs and us three can get acquainted" Jebson said and he pulled me away from Jason who looked angry but didn't say anything, we made our way down the stairs.
I wanted to fight I want to kick and scream but Richard had made the rules clear, once they were tired of me I would be dead.
Another light was flicked on but it didn't offer much more light, everything was old and smelled of wood, an old basement that held objects that I never wanted to know the purpose for them.
