CHAPTER 27 - "I'm so sorry that I couldn't protect you"
I woke up when the doors of the room opened. I rubbed my eyes open and saw a man that I had never seen before holding a tray of food. He quickly set the tray on the floor and then left, locking the door behind him.
I slowly crawled over to the tray and brought it back to Jake’s sleeping form. Looking over the food, I saw soup, bread, rice, chicken and water.
I lightly patted Jake’s cheek. “Jake, wake up.” I pushed some hair away from his eyes as he stirred and slowly opened his eyes.
“Hey,” he said softly and smiled weakly when his eyes landed on mine.
I nodded at the tray. “Food.” I picked up the spoon and scooped up some of the rice before moving my hand to his mouth.
His lips parted and I slipped the spoon inside for a moment before dragging it our again. My eyes never left his throughout all of this. I got another spoon ready but he shook his head.
“Your turn,” he told me.
I was about to protest.
“You’re not only eating for yourself,” he reminded me.
My hand subconsciously went to my stomach when he said that. I looked back up at him and nodded slightly. He was right. I ate the spoonful of rice and then went for some more.
This continued in silence for a while. I gave Jake a spoon and then took one myself, stopping occasionally to give him some water.
When all the food was finished, I pushed the tray towards the door and wrapped my arms around Jake’s taut body while resting my head on his chest. I could feel his heart beating next to my ear. It was such a beautiful and reassuring sound that I let myself drift for a moment.
I imagined that it was the morning after we had first made love and I was laying on Jake in this way, breathing in his masculine scent and feeling the warmth of his skin next to mine.
I smiled at the thought before I remembered that I wasn’t where I wanted to be. I opened my eyes and realised that I was living a nightmare. A nightmare that I couldn’t escape from.
The door opened and hit the wall with a bang. Before I knew what was happening, I was pulled off of Jake’s lap and dragged away from him.
“Hey, let her go!” Jake shouted.
The man that had a hold on me tugged me closer to the door as I thrashed about in his arms and stretched my hand out towards Jake in an effort to get closer to him. “Jake!” I screamed.
“Elle!” he roared.
I was pulled out the room and the door slammed shut. I was still struggling the in guy’s arms but he was too strong for me. I recognised the corridor and the places that I passed. I suddenly realised where we were going and panicked by hitting any part of his body that I could reach.
We reached a door at the end of the corridor, he kicked it open and threw me on the bed. I landed on my front and immediately gasped, flipped over and placed my hand on my stomach. No, please please please be okay. Please. I begged silently in my head. Oh God, please be okay.
Monero walked into the room and I moved my hand away from the baby growing inside of me, hoping that I didn’t cause any suspicion.
