I had been searching for Jamie amongst the mass of people busy chin wagging or dancing to the Best Song Ever for some time now. When I returned with the drinks, she had disappeared. i didnt want to bother the other 1D members because they were busy fooling around and chatting happily. However, I noticed that Niall wasn't around either. Perhaps Niall and Jamie were together somewhere. Right before I stopped looking,I spotted Jamie hurrying out the exit, a distressed look on her face. I squeezed my way through the crowd, receiving scowls and glares along the way as I tried to catch up with her. I followed her outside where there was no one around except for a few cars. Once again, there was no sign of Jamie. Everyone was inside, celebrating. Then, something caught my eye.
I noticed a shoe lying on the ground. As I strode over and picked it up, I realised it was much like the ones Jamie was wearing. That was when my heart dropped. I knew that something was wrong. Immediately, I took out my phone to ring the police. But before I could, I felt someone hit me hard in the back of my head, knocking me out completely.
"She's not gorgeous like a model,neither can she sing. She doesn't have much money. She doesn't have much fame..."
"Exactly,"Simon agreed, satisfied that I agreed with him.
"But none of that matters to me."
"She's smart, funny and beautiful inside and out. You don't even know her as well as I do so how could you criticize and judge her and tell me she's not good enough for me?" I hissed, trying to control my anger.
"In fact, I don't deserve her! But I'm in love with Jamie and to have someone like Jamie love me is...she's perfect to me. She's everything I've ever wanted and she makes me happy. So you can forget about me leaving her. She's the best thing that's ever happened in my life, besides 1D. And I'm not about to give up on her. I never will," I told him, before walking away. "I won't leave her,"I repeated, glaring at Simon before I walked out of his office.
I returned to the party, in search of Jamie who I realised was no longer with James, who was also nowhere in sight.
"Have you seen Jamie?" I inquired from the boys who were sitting with El.
"Yeah, she left. She told us she wasn't feeling very well," Zayn answered.
I ran out the door, leaving them confused. Jamie wouldn't leave without telling me. Something was wrong.
"Jamie?" I called. There was an uncanny silence. I tried calling her phone multiple times but I was repeatedly disappointed when she didn't answer. The worry and anxiety I was feeling also heightened.
"Found her yet,mate?" Harry asked from behind me. It looked like the others had followed me as well. I shook my head.
"Shes probably back at the flat," he suggested. I glanced at him before digging into my pockets.
"Any of you lads have some money?" I asked, frustrated. The anxiety in my heart made me annoyed very quickly. I'd hop on a cab to go back to the flat.
"Niall!" Zayn called from a distance with a sense of urgency.
I ran over, as Zayn bent down to pick something up. It was a shoe. Jamie's shoe...and there was a few drops of blood on it.
What happened? I wanted to touch the back of my head-it felt oddly warm and sticky and I was feeling very groggy. I groaned in pain, trying to move but soon realised that both my arms and legs were restrained. My eyes flew open. I looked around-it looked like the inside of an abandoned warehouse-the windows were dirty and the ground was littered with rusty nails and discarded pieces of plastic and all sorts of rubbish. It smelt horrid. Then I heard someone coughing, it sounded like the person was struggling to breathe.
"James?" the person gasped.
"Jamie!" I stammered, equally shocked. I could tell she was somewhere behind me but I couldn't turn my head to look at her.
"What's happening?" she asked, sounding petrified.
"I don't know. Are you alright? Are you hurt?"
"No, I'm fine."
"Can you move?"
"I can't! I'm tied down!"I could tell she was panicking.
"Jamie, calm down," I told her as I heard her struggling to break free. "You're going to break your ankle again if you don't stop. Listen to my voice," I instructed."Everything is going to be alright."
""Okay," she exhaled, she was controlling her breathing.
"What's the last thing you remember?"
She gulped loudly." I went away from the party to get some air after-" she hesitated."Thought someone was following me. I can't remember what happened next but I felt someone put a cloth over my nose and mouth and it smelled disgusting and burned my nostrils. Next thing I knew I was being dragged into a vehicle, tied up and blindfolded."
"And now I'm here,"she murmured, her voice shaky."Where are we?"
"I haven't got clue. Don't worry,we'll get out of this," I tried to comfort her. "Just stay calm. Someone is bound to notice we're gone. Niall is probably searching for you right now."
"I'm not so sure about that,"she murmured softly.
"Nothing. You don't happen to have your phone do you?'
I looked at my pocket. "No."
"F***," she cursed. She usually didn't curse which meant she was very angry or very scared. "Who the f*** would do this!"
And then the door opened and slammed shut loudly, followed by loud, echoing steps. It was coming from behind me so Jamie would be the first to catch a glimpse of our attacker.
