31. The old cottage

Damen finished wrapping up my shoulder and I looked up at him. “Why are you helping me?”

“I don’t want to kill you.” He said and gave me a small smile. “I’m saving that for another day. Also, I still want that kiss.”

“I’ll never kiss you.” I hissed at him and he chuckled and stood up, brushing off his pants. He reached into his pocket and pulled out his mobile phone, waving it in my face.

“Do what I want, and I’ll let you call whoever you like- Harry, your dad, whoever. Just not to police.”

I looked at the mobile as it was put right in front of my face. I had one person I wanted to talk to right now. I just needed to hear his voice and make sure he was okay.

“Liam?” I whispered quietly to myself, but Damen just have heard.

He laughed loudly. “Your boyfriend Liam? He is long gone! Did you see all that blood? I bet you he never made it to the ambulance. He probably died seconds after we left- cold and alone and terrified.” Damen knelt down and leaned in close. “And you know what? It is your entire fault, Alex. He would still be alive if you never ran. This is your entire fault.”

Tears streamed down my face as I thought about it. He was right. This all happened because I didn’t listen to Damen. All those years ago, when I ran from him, lead up to this point. The blame was on me.

Damen casually walked over to the little table and leaned against it, looking over at me as I sat on the rickety bed.

“Why are you doing this to me?” I cried and Damen slammed him fists down on the table with a huge amount of force. The bang echoed through the room and I jumped, cringing back as I braced myself for more pain.

“BECAUSE YOU LEFT ME! Ever since that guy at that party, you were planning on leaving me. You were such a whore!!” Damen ran over to me and I leaned away as he inched his face closer to mine, his feature suddenly softening. “But I still love you, Alex. We can still be together. It can go back to how it was before- just you and me.”

I felt empowered all of a sudden and I snarled. “I never had a choice, Damen! You locked me in my room! It was only you and me because you drove everyone else away!”

He stroked my cheek, looking deeply into my eyes. My skin crawled when he touched me and I craved to be as far away from him as possible. I pushed myself against the cold wall and he sat down next to me.

“Don’t be like that, baby. You love me. Don’t worry. Everything will be okay.” Damen leaned in closer and I felt repulsed. Quickly turning my head to the side, I averted the kiss. He pressed his lips roughly to my cheek and pulled away. I kept my head facing the other wall and I felt a weight being lifted from the bed. I looked over and saw him walking to the other side of the room towards the kettle.

He said he would let me call anyone. Damen may be a psychopath, but he kept his promises. He said he would find me and he did.

His back was to me as he fiddled with the stovetop and I took a deep breath. Was I going to really say this? Was this just a huge mistake? He was going to force me to do it later, so why not do it now and get something out of it?

“I’ll kiss you, Damen.” There it was. Out in the open. I had said it and now there was no taking it back. Dread filled me as he slowly turned around the face me, smiling crazily.

“But only if I get to call Harry.” I added and the grin was wiped away quickly, his face hardening.

“If you’re going to be like that- fine. But at least I get my kiss willingly.” He walked over and held out his mobile. “You get one minute.”

I nodded shakily and snatched it away from him. He stood there, staring at me, waiting for me to enter the number. I raised my eyebrows. “Can I have some privacy?”

Damen shrugged and walked over to the other side of the cottage, sitting down on a chair. He crossed his legs and watched me intently. “I’ll be listening. Don’t you do anything stupid, Alex. And don’t you dare tell him where we are. Just say your goodbyes and hang up.”

I ignored him and dialed the familiar number, praying that Harry will pick up.

Harry’s POV

“Wake up, you numpty!” Niall cried, leaning over Liam’s bed. “Open your stupid eyes and help us look for Ally!” I rushed over to him and gently pulled Niall away.

“He’s in a coma, mate. They’re just guessing that he can hear- none of it’s for certain.” I said grimly and helped a tearful Niall over to a seat on the other side of the hospital room.

“How are we going to find her?! Damen’s completely bonkers and we can’t even get a hold of her dad and brother! What are we gonna do?” Niall rubbing his red eyes and took a shaky breath.

“Zayn and Lou are out with the volunteers and police now. Maybe they’ll find her.” I rubbed his back comfortingly and sat down next to him.

“I’m going mad just sitting here, Harry. I need to do something.” He sighed and rested his head in his hands. I knew what he meant. Ally was out there, alone with Damen, probably scared out of her wits. After what he had done to her and Liam, I had no idea what he was probably doing to her right now. Had he stabbed her again? Raped her? Killed Her? I shuddered at the thought of anything happening to my Ally.

“We’ll be switching off with Zayn and Louis in an hour. We can do plenty then. For now, keep your eyes on Liam to see if he moves.”

Niall nodded and looked up slowly, his sad eyes shifting over to the motionless Liam. The monitors he was hooked up to beeped incessantly and the drip of the IV and blood transfusion filled the quiet room. I could hear continuous movement outside and the slapping of shoes running up and down the hallways.

We had tried phoning Uncle Mark and Jake after the police arrived and we were riding after the ambulance to the hospital, but they didn’t pick up. It just went straight to voice mail. They had no idea what was happening. They were probably having a great time as they bonded over s’mores and fishing. If only they knew that Ally was kidnapped and her boyfriend extremely wounded-

On the nightstand beside Liam’s bed, my mobile started going off. It was the standard tone, meaning that an unknown number was calling. I sighed and ran my fingers through my curly hair, just waiting for the annoying ringing to stop.

“You gonna get that?” Niall asked and looked over at me.

“Fine.” I huffed and stood up slowly, shuffling over to table. I picked up my mobile and looked on the screen- unknown number, as I already knew.

I lazily pressed answer and moved the mobile up to my ear. “Hello?”

“Harry!” Someone said, relief laced through their voice. The line was crackly and faint, but I knew who it was. I would recognize her voice anywhere.

“Ally?! Where are you?!” I shrieked and Niall jumped up in his seat, rushing over to me at the mention of my cousin.

“Harry- do you remember when we were kids?” Ally lowered her voice and I shook my head, confused. Of course I did, but what did that have to do with anything.

“Yeah. But where are you?!”

“Harry, remember when we played ultimate hide and seek and we couldn’t find Jake?” She whispered and I could hear what sounded like a chair scraping against the floor.

“Yeah, he was in that abandoned house in the middle of the woods.” I replied quickly, adrenaline pumping through me. Ally was alive.

Suddenly, everything clicked together in my mind. The old cottage where we used to go- she was telling me where she was taken to.

“Harry, I can’t talk much longer-” Ally yelled and I could hear footsteps approaching on her side.

“Wait! Is that where you are? In the old cottage?!” I yelled into my mobile, hoping that she would confirm this- I knew exactly where the old cottage was.

“Harr-” The phone went silent and I screamed in frustration. I hastily dialed Louis’ number and waited impatiently for him to answer. I knew where she was! I could save her!

He picked up after a couple of rings and I interrupted before he could say anything.

“I know where Damen took Ally!”
