When I woke, I felt disoriented, scared but mostly in pain.
My head -well, I'm not even going to talk about it.
My body... an example :
Get run over by a truck, 100 times and ask an elephant to sit on you and finally multiply the pain by a million. Yeah, that's how I felt.
But forget that...
The last thing that I could remember was falling, into a never ending cold pit. Darkness surrounding me.
Now I found myself in a small room.
No furniture, not even a bed.
There was a light-bulb hanging from the celling.
No windows -that narrowed down my non-existent escape plan.
The door was made of... iron ? Or some other kind of invincible material. Great.
I stood up, gently in case I lost my balance. But both my legs worked, fortunately !
I walked slowly to the door and tried the knob -locked.
Not a very big surprise.
I sank down to the floor which was carpeted.
Where was I ?
In a room, that was for sure, maybe in a house ?
I should be with my friends at the mall.
But the real question didn't concern my location, I could work that out later, the problem was what was I doing here.
Then it hit me. Adrian. His hands around my throat.
I'd been kidnapped.
Me, Leah Mortel, a nobody, just another face in the crowd.
I found myself now in the hands of a psycho-killer/ rapist. Some crazed guy who had some serious problems.
Who knew what he's do to me ?
And good god ! His eyes ! White !
I was hyperventilating. Take deep breaths, I soothed myself.
I tried finding a reasonable explanation.
Maybe contacts ?
In case I got a way. There was a good chance I wouldn't be able to describe him to the police.
His face was to normal to identify, handsome yes very but ordinary.
I sat up, pushing myself into a position that didn't hurt as much.
For the first time, I was shaking, crying.
I never cry !
But I couldn't stop those tears from coming.
I cried for hours. And as frightened and mad as I was I was glad Adrian didn't see me like this.
