My heart was beating out of my chest, I was almost sure he’d be able to hear it. He stood up and walked closer to me. I backed away. I felt the side of the bed on the back of my knees and I fell onto the mattress. He stood in front of me.
“Now that you’re awake, I guess I’ll get right to it.” He purred. He pinned both of my wrists above my head and straddled my legs to stop me kicking out. I started to growl and tried to push him off. Failing; he tightened his grip on my wrists. Catching him off guard, I bucked my hips making him loose balance and fall from me. I got up and ran.
I don’t know how long I’d been running but my legs felt as though they were about to give out. I urged myself to go further but I couldn’t carry myself any more. Consciousness lost the battle to sleep.
My eyes fluttered open and I welcomed the pale moonlight that had spilled out from under the crimson curtains. A candle was lying on the floor a metre or so from where I lay. It had long since burned out – although, I don’t remember it being there when I collapsed here earlier.
I turned onto my back and sat up. It was then I saw; I wasn’t alone. He was sitting next to me, smirking evilly. “It wasn’t a good idea to run from me.” He stated. I just looked at him. His face changed from slight amusement to high annoyance.
The corners of my mouth tugged into a cocky smile. I raised an eyebrow and waited for him to speak again. “Listen girl! You’ll do as I say, when I say! Or there’ll be consequences!” He paused. “What’s your name anyway?”
“What’s your name?” “That’s none of your business.” “Isn’t it?” “I said; what’s your name?” “Why?” “I want to know.”
