“Rose!” Maureen DeSilva sharply called looking across the small hall where twelve teenage girls all wearing the same black leotards with their hair neatly pinned up in a bun were standing in a row.

“I’m sorry Miss Maureen but there’s a dog outside in the garden limping, it looks in pain,” Rose replied turning away from the window to face the elderly woman dressed in a long black dress. “Can I go and check on it please?”

“Don’t’ be a silly girl!” Miss Maureen walked towards Rose and tapped her on her back with the cane she always carried around with her. “Stand up straight and practice your pointe.”

For the next two hours before dinner, all the girls concentrated on their ballet pointe. Even though Rose tried to concentrate she couldn’t get the dog out of her thoughts, she felt sorry for the scruffy black and white dog she’d seen.

 

When their ballet lesson ended, the girls ran upstairs to their own rooms to change, they loved the weekends. After wearing white dresses all week, they were allowed to wear casual clothes. Rose dressed in her jeans and stood in front of her mirror turning from side to side running her hands around her hips, she loved the tightness of the soft denim against her skin. After reapplying her makeup she slipped on her favorite pink t-shirt and unpinned her bun. Rose’s long black hair fell loosely over her shoulders as she brushed it and chose to leave it down.

While sitting at the dining table waiting patiently for Miss Maureen and Miss Anne to bring them their food, the girls excitedly talked amongst themselves. Every Saturday afternoon they were free to choose what they wanted to do with their spare time, they could mix with the younger girls who lived in the other areas of the house or they could relax in the living room and listen to classical music on an old record player. Other activities they could do were playing board games and cards, dressmaking, cross-stitch, and baking. The girls had never seen a television or heard a radio play, so they knew nothing about what was going on in the outside world.

Miss Maureen and Miss Anne wheeled in the trollies of specially prepared food needed for each girl's dietary requirement, the girls had to be kept healthy. The girls went silent and sat up straight while they placed the food on the table. Miss Anne placed Rose’s plate of steamed fish and vegetables in front of her and smiled. “Rose after dinner would you join me in the dance hall please.” She then turned to Violet. “And you too.”

“Yes, Miss Anne.” They said in unison wondering what she wanted them for but they never questioned the two women that took care of them.

After their meal, the girls who were on the rota to wash the dishes cleaned the dining room while the others went to enjoy their activities. Rose and Violet walked down the hallway together towards the dance hall. “I wonder what Miss Anne wants us for?” Violet asked.

“I don’t know.” Rose linked her arm through Violets. “Maybe it’s time for us to be married we are both eighteen now.”

“But what if we’re not chosen to be married, do you think we’ll stay here forever?” Violet stopped walking and rubbed her forehead feeling worried.

Rose stared at her friend, she couldn’t give her an answer. “I don’t know.” She shrugged. “Don’t worry about it, of all the girls that have left here none of them have been over the age of twenty.”

“Come on girls.” Miss Anne impatiently shouted from the dance room doorway. “We haven't got all day.”

Both girls ran along the corridor towards Miss Anne who sweetly smiled as they approached. They followed her into the hall where Miss Maureen was waiting for them. “Don’t worry it’s just a health check.” She gestured Rose to go to her while Miss Anne took Violet the other side of a curtain. Rose took all her clothes off and stood on the scales in front of her and stared ahead into the huge mirror that was fixed into the wall. She was used to the health checks but wondered why it was taking place in the dancehall and not the medical room like it always was.

Miss Maureen was muttering to herself. “Nine stone 5 pounds, height five foot four, that makes a body mass index of twenty. Perfect!” She cried looking up at Rose. She then checked under her armpits, between her legs, and around her legs to make sure all hair had been waxed off correctly. Miss Maureen smiled. “When you’re dressed, you’re free to leave.”

As Rose left the hall she waved to Violet who was still with Miss Anne. She thought about what she would like to do with her time now and decided that baking a cake for everyone would be nice.

For the next hour, Rose was in the kitchen on her own busy making the cake, when she took it out of the oven it was a little burned on the top. Carefully slicing the burned bit away she opened the kitchen door that led to the garden and threw the burned bits out for the birds. Rose shivered as the cold winter breeze blew around her body, she gazed across the garden wondering if it would snow that winter when she noticed the black and white scruffy dog limping towards the hedges. Knowing that she would be in trouble for going outside unaccompanied, Rose sighed she felt sorry for the dog and wanted to go and check on it. Glancing behind her to see if there was anyone about, Rose’s heart began to race as she stepped into the garden alone.

Rose ran towards the hedges and quietly called the dog then noticed it at the side of the large porch at the front of the house. She paused for a few seconds wondering what to do, she would definitely be caught at the front of the house but she was sure if she explained about wanting to help the dog Miss Maureen and Miss Anne would understand. As she approached the porch the front door opened, it scared the dog and it limped away as fast as it could towards the forest.

Rose froze when she heard Miss Maureen’s voice, she knew she’d be caught now. Her heart raced as she hid behind the red brick lower part of the porch and held her hand over her mouth. Curiosity got the better of her when she heard the sound of the deepest voice she had ever heard, she leaned against the house and raised herself to see where it was coming from. Her heart began to thud so hard in her chest it was almost painful, standing in the porch was a tall large built dark-haired man dressed in a black jacket and trousers. Rose stared wide-eyed with fear, he looked nothing like the pictures of handsome well-groomed men that she had seen. She crouched down at the side of the porch as he took a step out and turned to face Miss Maureen. “And don’t worry, the body is somewhere where no one will find it.”

“Good.” Miss Maureen laughed. “So you fed her to the pigs like the others?”

“There’s no better way.” The man laughed. “I hope this one lasts longer than the other. I pay good money for these girls.”

“How long did you say Blossom lasted?” Miss Maureen asked.

Blossom? Rose thought. Blossom was her friend that left the house six weeks ago to get married.

“Four weeks.” The man laughed again. “It’s a shame really that cunt of hers was the tightest I’d ever had, she screamed like a bitch every time I fucked her.”

Miss Maureen laughed. “Well, hopefully, your new purchase will please you.”

“She certainly will, I was getting hard just watching her through that two-way mirror of yours”

Rose heard the loud crunching sound of footsteps along the gravel as he walked away then stopped. “Ms.DeSilva.” The man called. “What time will she be delivered?”

“Sometime this evening, I’ll phone you when we’re on our way.” She called back.

“And her name?” He curiously asked.

“It’s Rose.” She answered then closed the door.

Rose collapsed on the floor in shock, tears streamed down her face as her head spun with everything she’d just heard. The girls didn’t leave to get married when they left the house, Miss Maureen sold them. Her friend Blossom was dead and her body had been fed to pigs. That man had seen her naked while she was having her health check and she was going to be taken to him that night. She had to warn the other girls about what she’d just heard.

Scrambling off the ground, Rose ran around to the back of the house towards the kitchen door. “No!” She cried when she saw that someone had closed it. She leaned against the door and slowly slid down it and sat with her head on her knee’s sobbing, she didn’t know what to do now. Raising her head she gazed across the garden and noticed the scruffy black and white dog sniffing around the trees that surrounded the grounds and wondered where it had come from. Maybe if she followed the dog it might lead her to find help. Rose stood up and shivered the evening sky had just begun to darken, she stared at the forest then glanced back at the house. “I’m sorry.” She whispered knowing that any of the eighteen-year-old girls could be taken at any time but at least she could find help for the younger ones.

Rose’s heart raced as she ran across the grounds towards the forest, she climbed over the fence and ran for her life.

 

Two hours later all the girls sat sobbing at the dining room table while they waited for their evening meal to be served, Rose was missing, every corner of the house and grounds had been searched and no one could find her. Miss Margret and Miss Anne were in the kitchen serving the food on the plates, they knew now Rose had run away. “Did anything happen today that could have upset her?” Anne asked her sister.

“I’ve questioned all the girls and the last time they saw her was at dinner,” Margret answered scraping the saucepan to serve the last of the mashed potatoes. “I’m going to have to ring Maxwell to tell him she’s gone, he’s going to be furious.

Anne shuddered thinking about how much trouble they were going to be in with Maxwell, he was not a man to cross. “We’re going to have to put some barbed wire around the fence to stop them climbing over, it’s not the first time girls have run.”

Maureen laughed. “There’s only three that’s ever run, two returned after a few hours and Daisy may have made it through the forest but luckily for us, she was found dead on a roadside.”

Anne gazed out of the kitchen window at the forest remembering the night she was watching the news on her television and hearing about an unknown girl that had been found dead from a hit and run, the description fitted Daisy’s.

Margret could see her sister was worried, she placed her hand on her shoulder and squeezed it. “Don’t worry, Rose won’t make it out of the forest, she’s not that strong, she’ll either come back or die in there.”

 

Rose staggered through the dark forest and collapsed to the ground gasping for breath. Her jeans were dirty from falling over, her blouse was torn and her arms were cut from climbing through thick bushes. Shivering she curled up and began to sob, she didn’t know how long she’s been running but it felt like forever and thought she was never going to find her way out. Her stomach ached, she was hungry but felt sick, she tried to shout for help hoping that someone was close by but couldn’t move her mouth properly. Mumbling inaudible words her mind drifted to home. She saw her friends giggling while they played games and sewed their own clothes, she thought about them sleeping cozily in their beds at night unaware of their fate. Rose let out a heartwrenching scream and rolled onto her stomach. Holding onto a tree she pulled herself up, her head was spinning as she staggered through the forest, she had to save the girls. Through the trees, she could see lights in front of her and heard a loud roar of a lorry driving along the road, Rose fell backward in fright, she didn’t know what it was. Struggling to get back up, she felt dizzy but carried on, there was an opening in the trees in front of her, she summoned up her last bit of strength and threw herself through the opening and rolled down a small bank onto a road. Rose rolled onto her back, she could barely breathe, her eyes slowly closed as she slipped into unconsciousness.
