Chapter Thirty Eight

Malik's point of view:
(Surprise!!! As requested. Thanks for commenting)

"Thank you," Mera said and then gave m two plates of food. She looked at Brianna with a smile and I guessed that Brianna just smiled in return, well hopefully. She hasn't been doing that smiling thing often.

"Okay, so, baby, this is for you and this is for me," I said as I wanted her to eat. Her body was growing weak already and it all felt like my fault. I shouldn't have let her slip out of my sight. I couldn't believe that this all happened to my dear baby. That Derek is so in for it. I am gonna end him with my own bare hands.

"Malik," I heard her heavenly voice whisper. I couldn't help but admire it. It was weak but it made me happy to hear it.

"Yeah," I replied. She looked at me with a sigh and then said, "My stomach hurts, I don't want to eat."

"Why didn't you say that before?!" I asked as Mera sighed. Brianna looked at me and then sighed. Could she have been scared to tell me?!

"I am sorry," she said and I hated this. I just sighed trying my best to control my anger as I didn't want to scare her off.

"What did they do to you there?!" I found myself asking. I didn't plan on asking at that time which made me back a little when those words rolled out of my tongue. 

"Can you hold me?!" she asked and my face turned into a smile. I did as I as asked. She didn't have to say this twice. I needed any excuse to hold her. I put her on my lap and warped my arms around her. She thanked me and to be honest, I wanted to know why. She was asking me to put her where she belongs.

"I remember Derek waking me up. He asked me to go on a walk with him and we talked. I thought that it was cool. He also told me about that girl that he liked. I was happy. After that, he said that he would buy me ice cream. I couldn't say no, so we were ready to go. I went in the car and there I felt something on my nose. I don't remember what happened after that. I remember waking up though. I woke up and found her looking at me. I was scared... I w-was really s-scared and...and," she said breathing heavily. I guess remembering made her really scared all over again.

"Calm down, baby! It's okay. You don't have to go on," I said as I smoothed her. Honestly, I didn't want to know what happened to her, but I just needed to.

"She started t-torturing me. She asked me a-about t-that password and D-Derek w-was on her side. I d-didn't know what to do. She w-whipped me, and....and, I w-was s-scared b-but I didn't tell her about the password. I d-didn't w-want to f-fail you, and d-dad. After t-that, she said that she would g-get some men to rape me. She s-said that she will s-send you a v-video and t-that you will leave me," Brianna said and hugged me closer and tighter. I wanted to cry at that. She thought that I would leave her?! But then again she had more reason than me to do so.

"Don't worry! I will never ever leave you," I said and kissed her forehead assuring her. I knew she had more to say.

"She put me to sleep and then she ordered a maid to change my clothes and then she came in and....and I was so scared. I didn't know what to do and I had a panic attack and I remember nothing after that. Stay with me please!" she said and hugged me tighter. I was glad she didn't stutter in the last part but I wasn't that glad because well she said it too quickly as if she was scared to mention it in front of me.

"It's okay baby, I will never do. I have gone through so much to have you back," I said and kissed her forehead. She gave me a curious look and it was filled with tears that she did her best to hold back.

"I knew from that fucker that you left so I looked everywhere for you. But then I thought that you left because well... I am not enough for you baby. However, Leo helped me and showed me how much you loved me so we decided to cut the chase. We went to the manager and asked her to check the camera. She didn't accept at first but when I pointed a gun at her she agreed. She said that she had a son who was violent like I was so she felt that she should help me. She asked me questions and so I did and then she became my mom. She is Mera," I said as I pointed at my mom. She smiled at Brianna and Brianna smiled at her back rubbing her eyes. I smiled slightly and then went on.

"After that, we decided to show Derek that he shouldn't mess with my girlfriend ever again so I kicked his ass and then Mera sent a therapist to make him spell the beans. We got to know our destination. But that day Alex called me and I was so worried about you and I decided that I had enough and that I was finding you. Leo and I went to the destination that Derek told us about. We wanted to find anything of use. We found some maps that showed us the next destination. It was already the next morning. We went there and when I we went there I fought everyone there for you. I couldn't just let you go. I was going crazy without you and I put my anger on all of them," I said and she smiled at me.

"I helped," Leo said and she smiled at him to.

"Yeah. He helped the whole time. He kept me sane, thanks buddy," I said and he smiled. I looked at my princess and she looked at me asking me to go on. She seemed to enjoy hearing me say how desperate I was without her.

"We saved you before anyone could get to you, and I carried you here and asked Mera to check on you. I am sorry baby, I couldn't kill that Alex but I promise that she will never touch you ever again," I said and she nodded and smiled at me thankfully.

I didn't want to mention the case we found her in. I smiled and then pulled her to me and kissed her forehead. The whole time Mera was feeding her so she finished her food. Mera just assumed that the pain in her stomach was because she was cold and she had to eat. I just nodded at her. I was glad that I could save my baby girl but I was angry. She was hurt really badly. I failed her. I am never allowing that to happen ever again.
