Early the next morning while Jack was getting himself ready for work he seemed in an upbeat mood. Lacey lay on the bed, still handcuffed to it while she watched him get dressed. Anger raged inside, she hated Jack for what he was doing to her. He kissed her on the forehead and went into the bathroom and began to run a bath. He came back into the bedroom and sorted a pair of his shorts and a t-shirt out.

“Here.” Jack threw the clothes on the bed. “You can have a bath and get changed before I go to work.”

Lacey’s eyes widened. “I’m not having a bath if you’re going to cuff me to you like you do when I go to the toilet.”

Jack smiled and sat on the edge of the bed, he stroked her hair from her face. “What’s up, you’ve not gone all shy on me, have you?”

Lacey forced a smile, inside she was panicking, if Jack was in the bathroom with her, he would see the had money in her bra. “No I haven’t but at least let me have a little bit of dignity.” She sat up and kissed him.

Jack gazed at her and gently ran his hands around her waist. There was only a small window in the bathroom so he knew she couldn’t climb out. Thoughts of her and Evan together ran through his head again and jealousy swept through him like a tidal wave. “Did Evan ever let you keep your dignity?”

Lacey sighed and dropped her shoulders. She didn’t want another argument. “Yes he did.”

Jack pulled her head back by her hair and stared into her eyes. “Did he ever hurt you?”

“No he didn’t.” She answered, rolling her eyes.

“You love him, don’t you?”

Lacey felt like Jack was trying to pick a fight with her, she tried her hardest not to take the bait. “Please Jack I don’t want to talk about him.” She ran her fingers over his stubble. “Let’s just concentrate on you and me now.”

He yanked her head back further. “Answer me!”

Lacey yelped with the pain of her head being pulled back and couldn’t keep her cool any longer. “I’ve told you already I don’t love him and do you know what, he never fucking handcuffed me to a bed!” She screamed.

Jack pushed her back down on the bed and straddled over her. “Keep your voice down!” he snarled punching the pillow next to her face.

Lacey flinched. “Please just let me go for my bath, I promise I won’t make a sound or try to run.”

Jack sat up and stared at her, he wanted to trust her and if she tried to run there was no way out for her. He uncuffed her from the bed. “Go and have your bath and be quick because I’ve got to go to work in a bit.” He said climbing off her.

Lacey got off the bed. “Thank you.” She smiled rubbing her wrist. When she entered the bathroom, she took the money out of her bra and put it under the small mat, quickly got undressed and climbed in the bath.

Jack came in and kneeled by the bath. Lacey felt her cheeks burn up, she tried to act relaxed and squirted the sponge with shower gel.  

Jack took the sponge off her and began to wash her back. “You do realise we are now both free to do anything we want now?” He grinned, moving the sponge in front of her to wash her around her breast.

Lacey’s stomach churned, she knew what he was hinting at. She turned to face him and hooked her hands around the back of his neck. “I’ve gone through so much just lately.” She nuzzled into him. “Give me time.” She whispered.

Jack pulled back from her and looked at her a suspiciously. “Hurry up, I’ll make you some breakfast before I leave.” He wiped his wet neck on a towel. As he walked out he picked her clothes up off the floor.

“What you doing with those?” Lacy asked.

Jack huffed. “You’re not wearing things that he bought you. I’ll buy you some new clothes today.” He stared at her for a few seconds then left the bathroom.

“Shit.” Lacey muttered under her breath. Jack had taken her bra, her money now had to stay under the bathroom mat and if he found it, god knows how he would react.

After her bath, Lacey dressed in Jack’s shorts and t-shirt and quickly tidied up the bathroom and pulled the mat straight. When she left the bathroom, Jack was leaning against the wall, waiting for her.

Lacey began to panic when he grabbed her arm. “No Jack!” She cried, struggling to get away from him.

“Give you time? Do you think I’m stupid?” He dragged her into the bedroom and swung her onto the bed and handcuffed her to it. “I know what you’re up to. You think you can sweet talk me into thinking you care about me!” He threw a plate of toast on the bed. “You’ve got two minutes to eat.”

Lacey shook with anger. “You bastard!” She screamed picking the plate up and throwing it at him as he was walked out of the bedroom.

The plate missed him and hit the wall shattering into pieces. Jack spun around and glared at her. He stormed towards her, forced her to lie on the bed and sat on her.  

Lacey was terrified. “Please don’t do this.” She begged. “I’m sorry.”

Jack unlocked the handcuff attached to the headboard. “When will you learn, that temper of yours.” He stopped talking as he struggled to hold her free arm above her head. “Will one day be your downfall.” He sat up out of breath and pulled hard on her arms to make sure she couldn’t break away from the headboard.

Lacey cried in pain, the handcuffs cut into her wrists. “I can’t stay like this all day, please Jack.”

“Don’t worry, I’ll be back throughout the day to make sure you’re alright.” He held her by her chin and gazed down at her. “Do you know how good you look lying here like this.” He leaned over her and kissed her.

Lacey had now had enough of playing the game, Jack disgusted her, she kissed him back for a few seconds to relax him then sunk her teeth into his bottom lip.

Jack jumped back and cried in pain holding his mouth. “Bitch!” He slapped Lacey across the face. “You can stay on your own all day now for that!” He grabbed the cloth off the bedside cabinet and rammed it into her mouth and tied a tie around her head to hold it in.

Lacey’s adrenalin rushed as she wildly kicked and bounced her body against the bed as Jack tried to hold her legs down to secure her to the bed. She put up a good fight but he got the better of her.

Jack stood over her out of breath and sweating. “I can’t have you banging around in here so people can hear you.” he kissed her on the forehead and stroked her hair off her face. “I’ll see you later.”

Lacey watched Jack leave the bedroom and began to sob. She didn’t know how much more abuse she could take from him. Her thoughts turned to when she was first taken to Evan’s house, she was terrified of him but no matter what grief she had caused him, he never abused her the way like Jack was doing.


Evan had barely slept the previous night; when he went to bed all he could think about was Lacey. He rolled onto his side and smiled a little, the smell of her coconut shampoo lingered on the pillows.

After his shower, he got dressed and went downstairs, Jim was already waiting for him in the living room with Ralph.

“Have you heard anything from Frank yet?” He asked Jim.

Jim glanced at his watch. “Should be any time now, he starts work at nine.”

Evan turned to Ralph who was leaning across the coffee table, typing something on his laptop. “Has anyone outbid me?”

Ralph shook his head. “I’ve just checked, there’s no more bids so far.”

Evan sighed. “Ok, make sure you keep an eye on it.”

Jim’s mobile began to ring, it was Frank. He told Jim that Jack was at work, his shift finished at six in the evening and his car was not in the car park so he had walked.

When Jim told Evan what Frank had told him, he could see he was getting agitated. “Listen to me Evan.” He calmly spoke. “You know what a fighter Lacey is, if Jacks holding her against her will, we know she would have tried to fight him.” He put his hand on Evan’s shoulder. “He’ll have her tied up so he’ll have to go home sometime in the day to check on her.” He turned to leave the room. “Just try to keep calm, she’ll be home today.”

“Where’re you going now?” Evan asked.

“Jack’s not in his car so I need to send men out on the street to follow him. If he goes back to his house to check on Lacey we will know where his house is sooner rather than later.”

Evan followed Jim into the hallway. “I’m going with them then.”

“No Evan.” Jim put his hand out to stop him. “Even I’ve got to step back from this one, if we’re seen in the city Jack will know we’re onto him. I’m not even going to send them out in our cars, I’m going to hire some.”

Evan slumped back against the wall, never in his life had he felt as helpless as he did right then but he understood what Jim was saying.

Within the hour, Jim had sorted two cars out and six men to go and walk around the police station area to follow Jacks movements throughout the day. Watching the men drive away, he too, felt just hopeless and frustrated as Evan did.

Just after midday, Jim received a call from one of the men. Jack had left the station and he had followed him into the city. He’d been in a clothes store and bought ladies jeans, t-shirts, underwear and some pumps then returned to the station.

Jim rang Frank to ask what time Jack had started his shift, he told him it began at six in the morning. Lacey had now been left on her own for over six hours. Evan was raging inside, surely Jack should go home soon to check on her.

Jack was in and out of the station for the rest of the day with colleagues, not once did he go and check on Lacey. It wasn’t until half past six that Jim got the call that Jack had left station to go home and they were following him.

He was followed to two streets away from the station where he was seen going into a small terraced house. Evan was ready to go around and barge straight in after him. Jim had to calm him down to make him see sense, they needed to wait until all was quiet, he wanted to wait until Jack was in bed before they went in after him. One of the men passed Jacks house to see what type of key he used for the front door, it was a yale lock key so that was going to be easier for them to pick. As long as the door didn’t have a bolt on the other side, their plan should run smoothly.

Evan and Jim sat in their car around the corner from Jack’s house waiting for him to go to bed. Evan’s mood was getting darker by the minute, he was raging inside, he just wanted to go in and get Lacey. Jim knew Evan wasn’t thinking straight and kept telling him that Lacey could get hurt if he didn’t do things the way he said.

Jack was seen closing his bedroom curtains at eleven o clock. At just gone midnight, Jim picked the lock on Jack’s front door, there was no bolt on the inside.

Evan and Jim slowly crept up the stairs in darkness, they stood in the front bedroom doorway. Evan’s heart pounded in his chest when he saw Lacey sleeping on her side with one arm handcuffed to the bed. Jack was curled up behind her with his arm wrapped around her.

Evan kneeled by Lacey and gently stroked her face. Jim walked to Jack’s side of the bed and pressed a gun to his head. The cold metal of the gun against his temple woke Jack with a jolt, his eyes sprung open and saw Jim standing over him. Jim raised a finger to his mouth and shushed him.

Something stroking Lacey’s face woke her up, she slowly opened her eyes and thought she saw someone kneeling by the bed. At first she thought it was Jack, but she felt him move behind her. Blinking several times to clear her blurry vision, she looked back at the figure. Her eyes widened, she thought she was dreaming, it was Evan.

Evan grinned. “Hello Lacey Jackson.”

Lacey reached out and touched his face, her bottom lip trembled. “Evan!”

I'm trying to write the next chapter to The Forbidden Fruit, but I love this story so much I keep getting pulled back to it. There's another story I'm loving, or actually two others, but I don't feel the need to read it as bad as this one.

I wonder whats gonna happen now. They'll probably kill Frank, but I don't know if they will right away. He probably try to convince them that they're in love, yada yada. How's Lacey gonna react about going back to Evans' as his whore, at least that's what's in her mind. Can't wait to find out what happens!

So everytime someone complains, that I haven't updated yet, I'm gonna say it's your fault, LOL...including you! ; Though I did get two pages typed earlier.
