I woke up feeling just a little more refreshed. There was still the existent pain deep down in my heart but I felt more revived. It was getting late though so I just showered, changed and went down for dinner.
I noticed dad’s eyes on me all through. He only has those eyes when he wants something. Specifically something he knows I’ll say no to.
“What is it this time?”
I groan halfway through my meal.
“It’s nothing dear. Just eat.”
“I might just do it. I’m bored these days so are you talking or….”
“Alright. A friend of mine is having a party for his daughter. I know you hate them and you don’t even know the girl but I’m too choked up at work to go. I can’t disappoint him so I was hoping you’ll make an appearance for me. I’ll really like that.”
The old man pleaded. I sighed lightly before going back to my food.
“When is it?”
“I’ll think about it.”
I blurt out seconds later. Usually I’ll say no but I need a distraction. Something to keep my mind off you know who.
He responds. I nod slightly and go back to eating in silence.
After dinner, I bade my dad goodnight and go back to my room. I have at least half a dozen text from Shawn. I don’t open any of them. I sincerely don’t have the energy for him, tonight. I’ll check tomorrow. I just wanted to shut my eyes and sleep. Maybe I’ll dream of an man who’s a fighter, strong and he’ll still be here beside me.
The Next Morning
I did my morning workouts and ordered breakfast. My daily routine would be the same as any other day. Go the gym and work out till it’s time for my fight. I rounded things up and was ready to leave.
About twenty minutes later, I noticed at least two guys trailing me. I tried to loose them but they seemed adamant. I took a deep breath, quickened my pace and hid behind an alley to get the upper hand. The moment they walked past me, I jumped on them. The first was quick to retaliate and the other provided support. I delivered as much blows, punches and kicks as I could until he brought a gun out.
He commanded. I raised my hands up in surrender. Before I could try to attack, he smacked me across the face hard. I staggered before passing out.
I lost track of time as I was unconscious. When I came to, I was on the floor in a medium sized room. I rubbed my eyes and twisted my neck trying to gain composure. I surveiled my surroundings and there was a camera meaning someone was watching.
I demanded firmly noticing a sound system.
A computerized voice said.
“Coward much. You can’t even use your real voice.”
“Call me a shy person.”
It replies almost immediately. I’m going with “it” Because I can’t figure out if it’s a man or a woman.
“What do you want from me!”
I snapped impatiently.
“Well, firstly I have to say am intrigued. Mesmerized even. For a second there I thought you’d be able to fight my men off. That would’ve been an absolute shame on my part. Never mind that though.”
“Why did you bring me here.”
I repeat and clench my fists.
“Not much actually. I just have a preposition for you.”
“A normal person would ask first. Kidnapping is a little too extreme don’t you think.”
“I think it’s a spontaneous way of getting someone’s attention.”
I scoff at its response.
“What so you want?”
I repeat and there’s silence. For about two or more seconds there’s just silence. Then, it responds.
“I want you to help me taken down Ariel Carter and her father.”
It says making me pause. This was not how my morning was supposed to go.
- Ghen. Ghen.
