The Bad Boy Has A Daughter.
Sequence 32-33
*Anna’s point of view*
It’s been two days. Two days since I had last seen Noah and Casey, two days with this sicko, the person who had abducted me.
Two days with my hands tied behind my back, my eyes blindfolded but now my position was changed. I was lying in the floor, a cold hard floor.
The only time he had released me was when I wanted to visit the toilets, but he never opened my eyes. So it was difficult using the toilet with your eyes clothes.
I couldn’t even fight back, while he tossed me around and rambled about how Noah’s father had been cruel to him and how he hated Noah, he has never actually raised his hand at me. The only time he even made body contact with me was when he kissed me, or just touched my face.
Which was gross by the way.
The whole place had been silent for about three hours and I figured it was because Noah’s race was today, the finals. So I figured he went to see it.
I layed on the floor, hands behind my back. They felt as if they were broken. Like I couldn’t move them. And my eyes, I haven’t seen light for a while now, so it was kinda sore. My injuries still hurt now, and my stomach grumbled in hunger.
The person had only fed me twice with stale bread.
I was tired, hungry and weak. Sitting here in the dark made me think of a lot of things. Like my aunt, once my phone had rang out and the abductor asked me who was Helen, I had ignored him. I didn’t want to put her in danger. He also told me Clary had called to, leaving a voice note that she was angry I travelled without telling her. I figured it was Noah that told her.
The one I thought about the most. I missed those glassy green eyes and that Charming smile. I wanted to be with him. At first I had been angry he kicked me out, then I was scared, when my abductor called him, I could hear the fear clouding in his voice, the way his voice quivered and the anger in his threats. But I couldn’t say anything, nothing to soot him because my mouth had been tied.
Now I was just sad, because our last meeting had been a sad one. With him telling me he hated me. Even though I knew he hadn’t meant that, it still hurts to hear him say it.
Now I just wanted to see him and confess my love to him. Because I did. Those our little moments flashed before me.
From the first time I met him in that alley bleeding, to when I took him home and I accidentally fell on him causing our lips to meet. And to when we met in school. When we were at the mall laughing at something Casey was saying. Till when he confessed he loved me the day of the semi finals when I was to get in Ryder’s car.
I missed Noah, and I was worried I won’t see him again.
“He won! F--k he won!” The only voice I’ve been hearing shouted, I could hear him coming down the stairs.
“Stupid Ryder, helping the f--k!!” The man shouted again.
Noah won! He won the race!
I couldn’t stop the smile that broke on my face. Thank God, Noah won. He could get me out of this place he could take me home away from the psycho. He could save Casey too.
My heart leapt with joy and I struggled to sit up.
“Everything was going as planned, the brakes stopped working. I made sure of that. But that bastard Ryder decided to rescue him!”
What? This person messed with Noah’s brakes so he couldn’t win. Why would he do that? But then Ryder had helped, Ryder? His opponent?.
Who was this person? He was obviously someone that worked hand in hand with Noah, someone that knew him well, and worked at the room racing ground enough to mess with Noah’s car.
But I couldn’t find out who he was. Because Noah hasn’t told me anything about the racing, I had only put two and two together. And from what the man had told me. Apart from that I didn’t know anything else.
“Stand up!” I felt a pair of arms grab me, and slammed me to the chair, tying me around it.
“What are you doing?” I chocked out, I felt a rope surround my breast before going to my back.
“Shut up! Your stupid boyfriend win the race. You know I was going to give him the honour of dying before I killed you. But now it’s even better. He gets to see you die, before I kill him” I heard him laugh.
“What are you talking about. He won the race he’s going to give you your money, isn’t that what you want?”
“You think money is going to pay for his father’s betrayal or stop the pain in my heart? No honey. Only death can. Yours and his”. He said.
“Who are you? Stop doing this!” I screamed when the pain of the ropes increased.
“You’re really dumb if you don’t know who I am yet. Guess Noah didn’t care to tell you, I’m like a father to him. I’m the person he looks up to. I’m the person who fixes the cars of the racers. You’ve met me before in the mall I bought his little daughter that teady bear”
He laughed, my heart increased it’s beating.
Oh no!
“I am Theo” he laughed again, coming to touch my face. Before drawing back.
Theo. The person Noah looked up to was the person that was Putting a knife behind his back and Noah didn’t know!
No! This is bad!
“At first when I saw Noah at the mall with you and his daughter. I didn’t know who you were, but the way he looked at you that day. Was the same way I look at my Mira. And his daughter, I knew she was his. Same eyes ,same hair, everything was the same. But Noah didn’t tell me, I knew he was only protecting you. But I can’t be fooled again. Not after what his father did to me.”
I gasped, I heard my phone ring. And Theo picked it immediately.
“Come to the abandoned Warehouse now with the money” Theo said.
“No! Noah don’t! It’s a trap! It’s The-” I could barely finish my sentence when Theo hit me hard in the face then I heard my phone fall to the floor probably breaking.
“Not so fast dear, don’t worry your boyfriend is coming to save you. Too bad I’ll have to kill the both of you. Such a waste”
I heard him pick up a bottle, and water spilling all over the floor.
No! That smell, it wasn’t water. It was petrol.
“What are you doing?” I panicked, trying to loose my self.
“I’m going to burn this place to the ground with you and your boyfriend in it”
*Noah’s point of view*
I had the money. All thanks to Ryder, I had win the race and collected the money immediately.
Then I called Anna, the abductor had picked up immediately and told me to come to an abandoned Warehouse, and I could hear Anna shouting in the background but I couldn’t make out the sentences.
“Where are you going now?” Ryder asked, moving away from the girls surrounding him.
“I need to get Anna now” i replied, opening the bag of money to check if it was really there. Five million dollars.
“What of Casey?” I had thought of that.
“Casey is safe, with Drew at least, he knows I’ve won the race. He won’t hurt her. I know where Drew is, I don’t know who Anna is with. I trust Drew to some extent but not whosoever this person is.” I heaved the bag to my shoulders and started to walk away.
“The car” Ryder called out.
My car, take it, it’s yours now” Ryder pointed at his car and I smiled.
“You weren’t kidding”
“I wasn’t. I have about five of that, go on, go get your b---h” Ryder smirkes before grabbing a girl and throwing me the keys.
“You need to stop calling Anna that. She has a name you know” I caught the keys.
“Yes I Know. But I’ll stick to b---h. Get lost f----r” Ryder Said before walking away, girls kissng at his biceps.
I smiled, then got into the car, throwing the bag in the back seat.
“Now where is that Warehouse?” I thought, started the engine and driving off the racing spot.
If only the cops weren’t against this illegal racing. I’d have called them. But then they’ll take me to jail immediately.
Passing through the streets, I thought of Anna. I had missed her greatly, I wondered what this person could have done to her. But the the voice sounded mature. Not like Ryder’s womanizing voice.
I wondered who would have taken her, the only enemies I had here were Ryder, which was now my friend kinda. And Drew and he wasn’t interested in harming Anna kinda.
No body else. Who would want to go to the extent of harming her just to get back at me. And for what?
I’ve never killed anyone, I’ve never hurt anyone intentionally. Then who?
Or was it someone from my dad’s past, someone that my dad offended. But who?
Where my dad wasn’t the best in the world, he abstaines from trouble. His only friend had been Theo.
And Theo would never do such, he had been taking care of me since my dad left, he would never hurt me.
He would take a bullet for me.
Maybe it was just some random dude who knew I race and wanted the money from my winning. That should be it.
Because I couldn’t think of anyone else.
Making a turn, I drove through the lonely street, it was probably around three in the morning, and everyone was asleep.
There used to be a warehouse down the road, it belonged to one of the shipping companies, but when their business fell it was abandoned, now petrol tankers parked their vehicles here.
I saw the warehouse, and drove close to it, before parking my car in front. Stepping out of the place, my eyes wandered through the area. It was dark inside but there was a small bulb at the entrance. It looked like no one was here but just at the left I saw a black car.
My heart hammered and I picked the bag then slammed the door shut before walking in, my footsteps echoing through the high ceilings.
Waking in, I heard muffled voices, then footsteps.
“Come on in, don’t be scared Noah” A voice called from the darkness, that voice was so familiar to my ears but I couldn’t pin point it to the owner.
“Where’s Anna?” I asked, looking around for the person, but I was met with darkness.
“Oh, she’s safe. For now. You and I need to have a little talk”
“I’m here with your money” I dropped the bag to the floor. “Bring Anna, and I’ll leave this here. We don’t need to talk”
“You’ve always been a controlling brat, very annoying” The voice drawled and I saw a figure above standing just in front of the railings.
“After your father left, you clung to me like a gum to a stick. I was so tired of it”
What? There was only one person I became close to after my dad left.
“Yes Noah. For once in your life, you used that damaged brain of yours” Then he stepped out of the darkness, and my heart froze.
I felt a chill run down my spine, my heart stopped beating for a moment and my joints locked, frozen at the spot. My mind raced, throwing questions at me. I couldn’t blink. It was like I had become a statue.
No, no, no!
While my eyes had seen it was Theo, my mind couldn’t comprehend and I couldn’t believe.
But why? Not Theo!.
He was like a father to me! He took care of me! He was my everything after my dad left!
Why would he do this? Why would he? Why?
Questions flooded my mind and I couldn’t find an answer to one. My eyes threatened to release the tears gathering around it. But I had to stop myself.
“You’re probably asking why I’m doing this” Theo stepped down, coming down the stairs, one step at a time, drawing the tension through the poorly dim building.
“You were like a father to me. You helped me. You brought me up after dad left. Why would you do this to me? What did I ever do to you?”
“Oh shut up! Stop acting like you’re the victim here, you know d--n well why I’m doing this, stop pretending!” Theo shouted.
“What did I do? Why did you take Anna! Even if I did anything, Anna is so oblivious to all this!”
“She’s as involved as you are. You’re going to know what it feels like to have the one you love the most taken away from you”
“What the hell are you talking about? I had nothing to do with Mira’s death!”
“Shut up! You have no right to call her name. You had everything to do with it. You and your bloody father!!” Theo screamed, his voice echoing through the empty warehouse.
“What? I didn’t kill her, I didn’t do anything. Drew did”
“And who caused it. Your stupid, self centered, bastard of a father. We were supposed to steal those cars together, get rich. But he took it all to himself. Drew knew I was Involved, and what did he do? He punished me by killing my Mira. She was so innocent, she had no clue to that. She just knew I raced and wanted to get away. But Drew killed her” I could have felt sorry for Theo of he wasnt trying to kill me.
“Then go after Drew, not me!”
“Oh no! Your father caused this in the first place, and wherever he is now. Once he knows you’re dead, he’ll come running back. And he’ll be heartbroken to see that you’re dead. I’ll make sure he also sees the corpse of his grandchild”
My blood boiled and I lunged for Theo on the stairs, he caught me immediately, slamming me to the wall, my shoulder snapped again and pain rocketed through my body.
But I couldn’t back down, on getting up, Theo used his feet to hit me on the ribs, and I fell back to the ground.
“You see, I wanted to kill you first when I messed with the brakes”
My head snapped up. So it was Theo. He wanted to kill me.
“But then I don’t know how you survived it. I’m sure it was that stupid Ryder. But now it’s actually much better. You can watch your b---h die first. If only Casey was here to finish it off. But Drew got to her first. Bastard”
Theo walked away, before pulling down a lever that was on the wall. Immediately something dropped, but stopped mid air, hanging on the wall.
“Anna” I heaved, coughing out blood and getting up, clutching my ribs in pain.
She wasn’t awake, her hands were tied above her, I couldn’t see her face Because her hair covered it. Her body was battered, dirty and some wounds were bleeding. She looked so small and fragile hanging up there.
“Anna! Can you hear me?! What have you done to her?”
“Oh nothing, just a blow to the head nothing serious”
Theo said, walking up to me, dangling off his pocket I saw handcuffs.
“Now, just hold still” He landed a blow to my head, and everything became blurry, but I fought back.
Trying to gain my vision, I pushed him away, and he stumbled, I drew my hand back to hit him but he caught my hand squeezing it back and put his finger through the bullet hole. I screamed and he hit my knee forcing me to fall to the ground before cuffing my hands to one of the trailers.
Theo smiled before stepping back. “Stay there”
I struggled to free my hand but it only caused blisters and pains.
“Theo please, I beg you, stop this” I pleaded, looking up at Anna who was still unconscious. “Just take the money and go, just go!”
Theo laughed, picking up a gallon before emptying it’s content on the floor, moving across the warehouse.
Petrol. No. No. No. He was going to set the warehouse on fire. And there were tankers everywhere.
“Theo stopped this!” I shouted, struggling out of the cuffs but to no avail. “Please, we had nothing to do with this! Stop this please! At least just let Anna go. Please she’s innocent to all these”
“No she’s not. Just like my Mira, but she payed the price. So will she, and so would you”
He brought out a lighter from his pockets before throwing it to the floor.
Then the flames sprung up.
