Lacey lay on the back seat of the car with Jim holding her down so she couldn’t attack him. She felt like they had been driving for hours which confused her, she thought that they were going to take her to the restaurant. Twisting her body around she broke out of Jim’s grip and managed to sit up. Jim grabbed her by the waist and pulled her close to him and wrapped his other arm over her arms. He was crushing the air out of her lungs, she dropped her head back against his shoulder, she couldn’t struggle anymore. Lacey glanced out of the window, all she could see were green fields. Lacey began to sob and begged Jim to let her go but he kept telling her no one was going to hurt her, Evan just wanted to talk to her.

After a what felt like a lifetime of driving through many winding country lanes, they stopped outside large iron gates, the driver rang someone on his mobile and the gates opened. Driving up a long driveway Lacey could see an enormous house in the distance. Her mind went into overdrive again, she was now miles away from home in the middle of nowhere, she believed that she had been taken there to be killed and no one would ever find her body. Lacey began to struggle again, she begged Jim to not kill her. They parked outside the front of the house and Jim got out of the car, Lacey kicked and screamed as he tried to pull her out.

Evan stood in the doorway laughing, many times he had seen Jim deal with men twice his size so watching him struggle with a skinny girl was the funniest sight he had seen in years.

Lacey noticed Evan standing in the doorway and passed out in fright.

Jim dragged her limp body out of the car and carried her into the house. He was out of breath. “She’s been crying and fighting me all the way here.” He told Evan as he lay her on the sofa.

Evan couldn’t understand why she was so scared to see him, she was fine when he last saw her. “Do you know what’s wrong with her?”

“She thinks we’re going to kill her.”  He walked over to the drinks cabinet and poured himself a whiskey and knocked it back. “Jesus, she’s hard work.” He laughed.

Evan was confused. “Did she say why she thinks we’re going to kill her?”

Jim shrugged his shoulders. “My guess is, it’s because she knows I saw her beat Racheal up this morning.” He passed Evan some pink pills. “She may be tripping too; these fell out of her pocket.”

Evan sighed, Lacey had told him that she didn’t take drugs. He sat on the edge of the sofa and shook her. “Lacey, wake up.”

Lacey slowly opened her eyes. “Don’t hurt me.” She whispered, her head rolled back and she fell into a deep sleep, she was exhausted.

Lacey slept through the rest of the day and all through the night. Evan didn’t move her, he covered her with a blanket and just let her sleep where she was. He sat up all night watching her, she looked so peaceful while she slept. He wondered how long it was since she had anywhere comfortable to stay. He could only imagine what it was like for her to sleep on the streets especially in the winter months.

When Lacey began to stir in the morning, Evan rang his housekeeper and asked if she would bring him a tray with tea and coffee and prepare breakfast for two.

Lacey finally woke up after sleeping for sixteen hours. She hadn’t got a clue where she was, she was lying on the most comfortable cream leather sofa in someone’s living room. Looking around the room trying to figure out where she was, dark wood units, filled with expensive ornaments stood against cream coloured walls. There were two other large leather sofas and on the coffee table in the middle of the room was a packet of cigarettes, ash tray and a laptop. Lacey was confused, where the hell was she? She yawned and stretched her aching body, she didn’t know how long she had slept and wasn’t even sure what day it was. She was just about to sit up when she heard someone enter the room, cups rattled on a tray and within seconds the smell coffee filled the room. She heard a man say thank you, Lacey sat up quick and looked over the sofa to see who it was. Lacey couldn’t believe her eyes, it was Evan. She lay back down and closed her eyes, why was she in Evans house?

Evan put the tray on the coffee table and sat on the edge of the sofa and nudged her. “I know your awake Lacey Jackson.”

Lacey opened her eyes and nervously smiled. “How did I get here?”

“My men picked you up and brought you here, you put up quite a fight. You should remember clearly soon, once this shit is out of your system.” he took the pink pills out of his pocket and showed her them. “I thought you didn’t take drugs.”

“I’ve only ever had two.”

“Since when?”

“I took my first one after I left you. I’m not a junkie if that’s what you’re thinking.”

“You only have to take one of these Lacey to want more, that’s what it’s designed for.” he said passing her a coffee.

Lacey sat up and sipped her drink. “Why am I here?”

“We’ll have breakfast first then we will talk, follow me.” Evan walked towards the patio doors.

Lacey followed him onto the patio, he pulled a chair out and gestured her to sit. She sat down and looked across the perfectly kept garden she could see through the trees at the bottom, behind them was high fencing.

“If you’re thinking of running Lacey, don’t waste your time, you’ll never get out.” Evan told her as relaxed back in his chair and lit a cigarette.

“Can I have one?” she pointed to his cigarettes.

He slid the packet across the table to her, she lit one and kept her eyes down. They sat in awkward silence for ages, she knew Evan was staring at her and it was making her feel uncomfortable.

“What would you like for breakfast?” Evan kindly spoke.

“Nothing.” She snapped. “Will you tell me why I’m here?”

Evan smiled at her attitude, no one ever spoke to him like that, he couldn’t wait to see her reaction when he told her why she was in his house. Lacey excited him and he knew that he was going to have fun with her. “You owe me Lacey.”

Once again Lacey felt confused. “Owe you what?”

“Ten thousand pounds, maybe a little more.”

“What!” she shrieked.

Evan laughed. “You assaulted one of my girls, and she can’t work until her face clears up. So now you owe me my losses.”

“Are you being serious?”

Evan stared at her with amusement and slowly nodded.

Lacey stared back at him with disbelief. Is he insane, he knew she had nothing? How did he think she was going to pay him back, if he was thinking of making her work for him as one of his whore’s, she wasn’t going to do that? Jack was right about him; he had now got his claws into her. Bile rose in the back of her throat, anger slowly crept through her body, she stood up and pointed her finger at him. “You are insane, if you think you are going to make me work for you as a whore to pay you back, I’m not doing it.” She pulled out the money she had tucked in her jeans and counted it then threw it on the table. “Here there’s three hundred and forty, take that off what I supposedly owe you.” She sat down and slumped in the chair, dropping her head in her hands.

She heard Evan move and slide the money off the table, then his lighter click. A few seconds later she could smell burning and looked up, he had set her money on fire.

He was now looking serious. “I don’t want your money Lacey. I want you.”

Lacey sat open mouthed watching her money burn, everything went silent around her all she could hear was her heart pounding through her chest. She jumped up from her chair and ran through the house, she was going to get out no matter what.

As soon as Lacey ran, Evan sat back again in his chair laughing. He called Jim on his mobile. “She’s trying to run, bring her back, I’ll be in my office.”

Lacey didn’t get very far; she had opened a window that had set off a silent alarm in the security room so Jim knew exactly where she was. As Lacy ran through the bushes at the side of the house she ran straight into Jim who was waiting for her. He picked her up, threw her over his shoulder and carried her back inside the house.

Smiling to himself, Evan sat in his office patiently waiting for Lacey to be brought back to him. He was fascinated with her wild angry ways, everyone in his life did what he told them to do without question but she didn’t. Lacey was a challenge and little did she know; he had plans for her.

Hearing screaming and shouting in the distance, Evan straightened his tie and rolled his shoulders, he was ready for the next round with Lacey. The door opened and Jim walked in with Lacey over his shoulder, he walked across the room out of breath and dropped her on the chair in front of Evan’s desk.

Lacey sat glaring at Evan, she had no makeup on, her hair was a mess, her t-shirt had a small tear by her right breast from fighting with Jim, she looked almost feral. Evan couldn’t help but think how sexy she looked like that and just wanted to take her to his bed right then and fuck that wildness out of her.

Taking a deep breath to control himself, Evan lit a cigarette and calmly passed one to Lacey. “We will sit here all day if we have to but no matter what, you will listen to me.” he sternly told her.

Lacey turned away, eyeing up the open window, Evan knew what she was thinking, he walked across the room and closed it. He sat back down at his desk. “Lacey look at me please?”

She shook her head and kept her head down.

“Ok, but I like people to look me in the eyes when I’m discussing business.”

Lacey looked at him confused. “What business?”

Evan laughed. “Lacey you will stay here with me until I feel that you have paid your debt off, so it’s up to you, the longer you refuse me, the longer you will stay here.”

Lacey nervously swallowed. “I’m not going to do it.”

“You’ve lived on the streets long enough. Haven’t you ever paid for something with sex before?”

“No I haven’t!” She cried. “I’m a.” Lacey suddenly stopped what she was going to say and stared at him, her shoulders dropped and her eyes began to fill with tears.

Evan raised his brows. “You’re a, what?”

Lacey closed her eyes as tears began to roll down her cheeks. “I’ve never had sex.” She whispered.

Evan sat back surprised with what she had just told him and watched the tough wild exterior she always held, crumble in front of him and she suddenly looked fragile. He thought back to when he first saw her in the alley and the strange feeling he had that he would see her again. When he saw her in the restaurant, he had recognised her straight away and had enjoyed watching her nervously serve him drinks through the night and the sexy little wave she gave him when she walked out of the room. The time he spent talking to her was the most relaxing time he had had in years with anyone and she made him laugh. But she needed to pay her debt to him, he also had a plan to make more money out of her with a crazy idea he had heard of through a friend. Lacey had to live with him to make it work and it would also make her wealthy.

Evan sat on the chair next to her and moved her hair away from her face. “Lacey you will pay your debt to me, do you understand?”

Lacey nodded her head.

“My housekeeper will show you where the bathroom is, you need to freshen yourself up and get changed.”

“But I’ve got no clothes.”

“Your clothes are already in transit, I ordered them last night for you.”

Evan rung his housekeeper to take Lacey to the bathroom. She was taken to a huge marble bathroom and given warmed towels and a robe. As the bath was running Lacey sat on the floor crying, she knew she wasn’t going to get away from Evan now. Her thoughts turned to Jack, would he looking for her, if he was he would never find her at Evans house.

Gulping for air, Lacey lay on the cold marble floor, she had never felt so alone in her sad and sorry life. She decided then, that she would just do what Evan wanted until the debt was paid then she could go back home, the streets were her home, that’s all she knew and that’s where she belonged.

The kidnap/resistance genre is rampant on here (yes I have one too so I'm not saying it's a bad thing haha) but your characters make this unique. I'm looking forward to seeing how you put your spin on it.
