Fearing for my Life
I covered my arms as Brent talked to Dette. "He held you at gun
point? Fuck! I completely understand and I am not mad at you,
Dette. You are protecting you and your husband. I will contact
the police down here. No, you don't need to come down here, we
will be fine," Brent said and he said his goodbyes and then he
looked over at me, and I knew right then, something is wrong.
"What happened?" I asked him and he shook his head and sat down
on our bed.
"Blake came into Dette's house, held her at gun point, wanting to
know where we are at. She didn't want Alec killed, so she told
him where we we're," Brent said and I sagged to the floor. I
touched my belly where Scooter is at and I cried. Blake is on his
way, probably right now as we speak, to find us. What he has
planned for us, or me, is frightening. Brent stood up and opened
the dresser beside me and he pulled out a silver pistol. "Baby, I
bought this last week, in case this happened. If Blake comes in
and he has a gun, get this and if you have to shoot him…" Brent's
voice shook. This has to really hurt him. He held his sister at
gun point and he is highly dangerous. What if he brings that gun
down here? "You can shoot him. I love him, but if he harms you
and my unborn child, do what you need to do to protect you two."
"I…never used a gun!" I squeaked and he grabbed my hand and
helped me onto my feet. We walked onto the beach and there is
targets up and ready.
"Hold the gun in front of you…" Brent said and I done just that.
"Don't put your finger on the trigger until the moment you are
going to use it. Put the sight on the target and then pull the
hammer down…" I done just that and pulled the hammer down. "Then
when you are ready, shoot." I put my index finger on the trigger
and pulled it. It jerked me back a little and I knocked over the
glass target. We practiced for an hour or so and we went back
inside. I stared at the gun and I swallowed loud. I might have to
use this on Blake, to defend my family. I cannot imagine the
terror in Dette's mind when her own flesh and blood had her at
gun point. If someone had me at gunpoint, I would have done the
same thing, I would tell them anything to protect my family. "You
hungry, baby?" Brent asked from the kitchen. I don't feel like
eating, but I need to eat.
"Yeah, what are we having?" I mumbled and I walked into the
kitchen and he put a poached egg and a few strips of bacon on my
plate. I grabbed the bacon and nibbled on it. Brent put his hands
on the counter and frowned.
"Blake will not touch you, or he has to deal with me," Brent said
and I sighed.
"What are we going to do? I am so scared…" I began to cry and he
walked over and wrapped his arms around me and held me tight.
"I will not let that bastard hurt you or our baby. How about
this, we will go to the mall tomorrow and do a little baby
shopping? I know we won't find out the gender until around May,
but we still get some toys and little things. Does that sound
good?" I nodded and he leaned forward and kissed my forehead.
"Now, finish eating, the baby is hungry!" I laughed and he goosed
my ass and I reached over and goosed his. He leaned over and put
his lips on mine and slid his tongue into my mouth. I moaned as
he tickled my palate with his tongue and his hand went up my
skirt, underneath my pants and…OH BRENT!
"No, this can be highly dangerous!" I said as I put a pointy
rattle back on the shelf.
"Baby, every toy will have a danger, we just have to watch
Scooter close!" Brent said and I sighed. He is right, I think I
am being a tad over protective over Scooter already, and he is
not due for another seven to eight months! I put the rattle in
the buggy and we gathered a few more items and a woman, heavily
pregnant, grabbed the same toy as I was going to get. "Sorry, you
can have it!" I said and she beamed a smile and put the toy in
her buggy. A cute blonde girl is behind her and she hid again. I
kneeled down and smiled.
"Hi there, care to say hi to me?" I asked her and she leaned
forward and waved. Brent and I laughed and the mother smiled.
"Samantha is highly shy around strangers. So, how far along are
you?" The woman asked.
"Six weeks, we are due in September," I said and Brent wrapped
his arms around me.
"Well, Sammy is two years old and this one in here is due in
three months and it's a boy. I am Tanya, what's your
name?" Tanya smiled and I made the introductions for me and
Brent. "And this is Scooter, say hi to Tanya and Samantha!" I
said to my belly and all three of us laughed. I said my goodbyes
to Tanya and Samantha and we finished up our shopping in the baby
store. Brent took us to the food court and ordered us a pizza to
eat. This is our first time shopping for our baby, and it was
just fun! "So, our first baby shopping trip, exciting?" Brent
asked and I laughed.
"Yes, very. I just cannot wait to see what the baby is, so I can
go haywire on the clothes!" I said and he smiled.
"Well, next time I have to buy some furniture for the baby as
well." We ate our pizza and as a pregnant woman, I have to pee
every ten seconds. I gave Brent the look and he laughed. "You
just peed like five minutes ago!" He said and I frowned.
"Give me a break, I am pregnant!" I said and he kissed my cheek
and I walked over to the restroom just outside the food court. I
used the john and when I finished, I went over to the sink and
washed my hands. Before I washed them, I took a good look at
myself. My face is glowing, well, it's the pregnancy glow. I ran
my fingers through my hair and then turned on the sink. As I
washed my hands, I heard the door open and close. I thought it
was another woman going to use the restroom, but none of the
stalls opened. I shrugged my shoulders and turned off the faucet
and grabbed a paper towel. When I about made it to the door, I
felt a hand on the back of my head and lips on my neck. "I found
you, Claire…" the voice said and chills went up my spine. No, it
cannot be him! I jerked loose of his grip and opened the restroom
door and yelled, "BRENT, IT'S BLAKE!" and Blake dragged me back
into the restroom and grabbed my head and pushed me against the
wall. My head began to hurt really bad and everything went dark…
