Chapter One (Continued)

Abriana

I awoke to a strange noise followed by, "Tsk, tsk, tsk."

I tried to open my eyes, but panicked when I saw nothing but darkness. "Why can't I see? Where am I? What did you do to me?" I wiggled back and forth, bumping into a low ceiling and carpeted walls. "Am I in a the trunk of a car?"

"You shouldn't have run away from me," came the nefarious voice belonging to the man in the dark alleyway. He gave a wicked laugh. "You know who I am, you know what I look like, and yes, you're in a car. The blindfold is so you don't know where we're going."

Struggling, I tried to bring my hands to my face, but couldn't. They were tightly bound behind my back.

He let out another laugh that left me chilled to the core. "I can't risk you trying to run away again, now can I?"

Fear quaked through my body. "Why are you doing this to me?"

"Because I love you."

The hair on the back of my neck stood up and my blood boiled. "No you don't," I spat. "You don't even know-"

Before I could finish, his ice-cold hands were around my throat and pressing on my windpipe. "Yes, I do and if you ever question me again, I will punish you." He paused and tightened his grip. "Do you understand?"

Unable to breathe or speak, I nodded.

"Now that's a good girl," he said in an eerie tone.

He released his hold on my throat. "Bye for now, my love."

I cringed as I felt his cold lips brush against my cheek. Then, without another word, he slammed the trunk shut and tapped on it three times before walking away.

My stomach clenched as a wave of nausea passed through me. I swallowed and forced the bile back down as hot tears stung my eyes and rolled down my cheeks.

Cliffhangers,

Sorry for the two short chapters. I was working full time while writing this book, so I didn't always have time to share long chapters. I figured splitting them was better than not posting! :) 

Thank you for all of your amazing comments and votes! I appreciate each and every single one of you! 

Hearts and Daggers,

Kelly Anne Blount
