That’s it. I have had enough. I went to the house where Alex, my beloved, was staying. Peeking through the windows; I noticed no one was there apart from the Irish boy and one of their girlfriends. What was her name again? Oh yeah; Eleanor. At first I was enraged that I couldn’t find my Alex. Where was she with my baby? Sorry, I meant ‘our’ baby.
I called one of my men, Blade. He was the one watching over Alex for me; so he should know where she would be. During my tense phone call with him, my teeth became clenched and it took my all not to get someone off the street and beat them to a pulp. I was angered by the fact that he didn’t know where she was. I gave him one task; one blooming task, and he doesn’t do it. Where in the world was I supposed to find my Alex now?
I slammed the phone against the wall and rubbed my temples. I knew I would find her sooner or later; it would just be later rather than sooner. Sighing, I walked over to pick up my phone and re-adjusted the photo on the wall. It was one of myself and Alex, way back when we were a happy couple. I smiled at the way she clung onto my arm pressing her head onto my shoulder. I remembered the happy memories we shared.
I looked around the room. I transformed it from a dark, damp, dingy place to a home where royalty could live. I painted the walls nice bright colours. I bought some decent furniture and even went as far as setting out scented candles. I know my Alex would love it. Just wait until I bring her home, she will jump right into my arms. I even had a baby room done, with a beautiful cot and mobile on top and teddy bears around the room. It was perfect for my child yet to come. Sorry, I mean ‘our’ child.
It just made me want to see Alex even more. I needed to see her; I wanted her with me and away from that douche, Liam. All I wanted is to be a happy family; me, Alex and my baby. Sorry, I mean ‘our’ baby. Was it too much to ask? I think not.
Slowly my thoughts drifted back to the plan I was constructing. First person that came to my mind was Kelly. Hopefully she had done what I’d asked her, unlike Blade. Honestly, having Kelly work for me is a benefit. She is good at seducing people, apart from me of course. Kelly can get anyone in her trap. Unfortunately for me, I have to put up with her googly eyes and sever attachment towards me. Can’t some people take a hint? I mean I have no time for that Kelly. I have my love to get back.
Finding Kelly’s contact I pressed call and held the phone up to my ear. After two rings she picked up. “Oh, hi Damen. How are you?” She asked in a high pitched voice. I just had to cringe.
Rolling my eyes, I got straight to the point. “Have you got him?”
I heard a sigh on the other end and then she replied. “Yes darling. He is all tied up.” She stated popping the ‘p’ sound.
“Good.” I breathed out. At least someone around here can do a job properly. “Do you have any information on where Alex is?” I asked. I really needed to know and since Kelly was the last with them, she might have an idea.
I heard a faint groan and a cough. What was it with this woman? Couldn’t she answer my question already? Can’t she see I am getting very impatient over here? After a shuffle Kelly spoke, “I don’t really know. But…” She trailed off.
“What?! How could you not know?!” I shouted down the phone. All I wanted was to know where my Alex was. “You said ‘but’. But what?” I asked in a hurry.
“Niall and Eleanor did call Zayn’s phone. I taunted them a little.” I could sense that she was smirking, thinking how pleased I must be. Oh, but how wrong she was. Little did she know that what she said would make me even angrier? How could she be so stupid?!
“How could you be so stupid?!” I yelled at her. I heard her yelp of surprise. I guess she didn’t know what I was talking about, did she?
“What have I done Damen, darling?” She asked again, using that really high pitched voice of hers, once again making me cringe.
“Don’t darling me!” I said harshly.
“But..” She tried to interrupt but I kept talking.
“How can you be so stupid as to answer Zayn’s phone?! What in the world where you thinking?” I asked her. Did she know that because of her stupid mistake we could be caught? I guess not. “You should have destroyed Zayn’s phone straight away!” As soon as I said that I heard a sound of understanding in her voice.
Well, she knew now, didn’t she?
“Damen, I am so sorry! I didn’t know. I didn’t think! I am so sorry Damen.” She apologised really fast.
“You better be sorry, and when I tell you to do something think about the steps you’re going to take. This isn’t an easy plan and I don’t want the police getting involved. You never know with Zayn’s friends.” I explained feeling a bit calmer now.
“Im sorry Damen. I will destroy the thing right now.” She told me. I rolled eyes, even though I knew she couldn’t see me.
“Make sure you do. And listen…” I said, forming the next steps in my mind.
“Yes Damen?” Kelly replied.
“I’m coming over there. I think there is only one way to get my Alex, and that is to make her come to me.” I said thinking slowly before every word left my mouth.
“What’s that?” Kelly sounded annoyed but I pushed her irritating voice aside.
“There will be a swap.” I stated and then ended the call.
