A sense of euphoria washed over me as I watched his retreating figure as he walked out of the door.
How did he make me feel like this? I giggled like a schoolgirl as I fell back onto the bed, inhaling his lingering scent. I almost felt ashamed for falling for someone who had kidnapped me. I shook my head. I needed to stop blaming him for that.
He was so perfect. His intense eyes, that gazed at me with so much love while he made love to me. His lips, as they devoured mine, marking me as his. And I was. I was his and he was mine.
I thought back to his last words before he ran out of the door. I love you. And I'm going to get you out of here.
How? Ugh, I wanted to call him back and demand answers from him but I knew that that was impossible. He had already left and I didn't want to go looking for him, because, for starters, I had no idea where he went, and because someone might see me and think that I was attempting to escape. I shuddered at the thought.
But I couldn't stop thinking about Alec. The things that he did to me last night and this morning, and, hopefully, will do to me in the future. And I'm going to help you get out of here. I wondered what he was planning.
Was he really willing to risk his life and the lives of his family for me? He must really love me. I smiled at the thought. He loves me.
I wonder what he is doing right now.
I scowled as I walked into the bosses office, thinking of what horrible chore he had planned for me today.
"Ah, Blackshaw, so glad for you to finally join us." He put so much emphasis on the word 'finally' that you would think that I had been gone for months. Wait, did he say us?
I looked around the room and surely, there was another figure in the far corner. The figure stepped forward. I clenched my fists and bit my tongue to stop from rushing forward and beating the smirking face in front of me until nothing remained.
"What is he doing here?" I said through clenched teeth.
"Coming to collect what is rightfully his." The boss said simply.
His?! Tessa isn't his. She is mine! I wanted to yell but I knew that it wouldn't help her circumstance. Panic welled up inside of me. What happened to a week?
"So what am I here for?" I asked as coolly as I could with the monster standing in the corner.
"You are going to accompany him and his slut to his house. He has offered to buy you as well." My knuckles turned white when he called Tessa a slut. She was a hundred times better than both of the two men combined. Heck, she was a thousand times better than the three of us combined!
But my heart swelled at the news. I would be with her! But...
"What's happening to my family?"
Southwood chuckled at this. "Don't worry. I'm holding onto them as well. Don't want you running off on me now, do I?" His eyes sparkled with some unreadable emotion.
"Guess not. When do we leave?" I wanted to know. The quicker we left, the quicker Tess, my family and I could escape.
"Immediately. Ever since I had her once... Well, let's just say that I can't wait to have another go." Southwood slimily replied.
I decided to ignore his comment, however, my jaw was tense as I turned to the boss. "Is that all?"
He just replied with a simple, "leave."
The door rattled.
For a second I was terrified, until a pair of vibrant green eyes came through the door frame. He turned to shut the door, and as soon as he spun around I was on him, pushing him back against the door and claiming his mouth with mine.
He was shocked for a while, as I forcefully opened his mouth to claim his tongue as well, but he soon responding by turning us around until my back was against the door. His body pressed up against mine so that I could feel all of him. He gripped my wandering hands and held them above my head so that I was helpless to his kisses and torture.
His lips moved down my neck, hitting my sweet spot and making me moan. I needed him...
"Alec..." I moaned desperately. He quickly pulled away.
"Wow. What was... What was that for?" he said shakily.
I shrugged nonchalantly. "I missed you."
Desire still coursed through my veins, but something was off about Alec. His eyes were... Worried?
"What happened? Alec? Why... Why are you giving me that look?" I had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach.
He sighed regretfully. "Southwood... He's here."
Suddenly, I started shaking uncontrollably. I couldn't stop myself. One mention of his name made my blood run cold. I could feel the blood draining from my face, probably leaving me as a white, pale mess, but I didn't care. It didn't matter. All that matted was that he had come back.
All of a sudden, I felt my knees buckle. I didn't even try to block the fall. Maybe if I got really bruised up, he would think that I was too ugly and would leave me alone. Maybe... I knew it was hopeless. I just kept waiting to hit the ground. But I never did.
I felt like I was floating. Maybe I had knocked myself unconscious. I opened my eyes slowly and stared into Alec's concerned ones.
He laid me back on the bed. "Tessa? Tessa, I love you. I won't let him hurt you. I... I love you so much and... It's going to be okay. In the end... In the end it will be okay."
I wanted to believe him. I wanted to so badly, but how could he make promises that he can't keep? He can't keep me safe. Not when he is being kept prisoner here as much as I am. Not when we are going to be separated by our different captors.
"I love you Alec. But... I won't be able to touch you, or kiss you and he... He scares me and..." I trailed off. Understanding flashed in Alec's eyes. He kissed me quickly and smiled down at me.
"He's buying me too." He said simply. I took me a little while to wrap my head around what he just said. But when I did, hope surged through me. Alec would be there. He would make everything okay. He would rescue me. He was my prince.
"When are we leaving?" I asked him.
"Now. Pack everything."
He got off me and starting emptying the cupboards and drawers into suitcases that were under the bed. Despite how much I disliked - make that hated - the boss, he did give me five star accommodation. Even if it was only for a few torturous days.
I got up and helped Alec pack. All of the lingerie that was given to me was placed in the suitcase. Once we were done, Alec picked up the bags and walked them over to the door. He put them down before turning to me.
"We will be okay," he said and grabbed my hand, holding it tightly in his own. Electricity ran through my palm but I ignored it. It was definitely not the time or place to jump on him.
He led me through the building until I reached a room. I recognized it as the first room that I came into, when I first got slapped to the floor. When I still had my innocence.
I shook that thought out of my head. I had to stay strong. For Alec's and my sake.
We walked into the room and waited.
Suddenly, the boss and Southwood stepped out of the shadows. They both smirked at our combined hands simultaneously.
"Scared are we?" Southwood sneered and took a step closer. I quickly cowered behind Alec's back. I was so terrified that I didn't care that I should be ashamed at being such a coward.
"Don't worry flower. I'm sure that Mr. Southwood will take very good care of you. I must say that I'm disappointed to be letting you go. Such a delicate thing." Amusement danced in his eyes. I was disgusted at him for being so uncaring.
Suddenly, I felt someone stroking my face but it felt wrong. Out of place. I looked up into Southwoods cold stare and noticed that Alec wasn't holding my hand anymore. He was standing near the boss and he looked furious.
I jerked my face back from Southwoods touch, but he just gripped my chin and pulled me closer. Then he pressed his lips against mine. I couldn't pull away, I was helpless, so I worked on keeping my mouth shut.
He continuously tried to pry my mouth open but I wouldn't give him entrance. Then I felt a hand holding my nose together so that I couldn't breathe. I furiously tried to escape but the grip on my nose and chin were strong.
Against my better judgement, I opened my mouth instinctively. Immediately, I felt a hot, disgusting tongue invade my mouth. The tongue reached every nook and cranny of my mouth. I thought about biting down on his tongue but I was scared of the consequences.
Finally, Southwood pulled away. "You are a slut! You're my slut!" I heard a low growl from across the room and looked in the direction it came from. Alec was standing there next to the boss, red-faced with clenched fists. He looked pissed.
He walked over with long, determined strides and stepped in front of me protectively. "When can we leave?" his voice came out through clenched teeth.
Southwood just laughed. "Impatience won't get you anywhere, boy. But we better get going. Follow me."
With one last look at the boss, Alec laced his fingers through mine and pulled me out of the nightmare, to what could possibly be an even bigger one.
