19. Chapter Eighteen

    There was only one light on. It was upstairs. I snuck around the back and looked down the window well to see if there were lights down there. There was only a small light on. I knew Ben had to be down there. I opened the top and climbed the small ladder to look in the window. I saw Ben laying on a cot. I knocked softly. He jumped and peered towards the window. He came and opened it once he saw it was me. I jumped into his arms and he hugged me tight. "You need to get out of here." he whispered. "You come with me." I replied. "I can't. They will do something, anything, to get us again." he said. "No, Ben. We can call the cops once we get out. Come on, please. I'm not leaving without you." I said. "Well, Ben. Looks like your escape window just closed and Sam I didn't think you were coming." our mother said as she came in the room. She was about to grab me when Ben pinned her against the wall. "Don't you ever touch her. Ever." he said through gritted teeth. She threw him backwards. He stumbled back into my arms. Mom came closer and Ben put his arms around me and turned so I was behind him. "Ben stop." I whispered. "No. She isn't going to lay a finger on you." he replied. "There's nothing you can do when your tied up, Ben." she said. Then, Ben was grabbed by our dad and pulled away from me. "Stop! Leave him alone!" I screamed and grabbed his arm, trying to get him back. I was stopped by my mom pulling me back. She threw me against the wall and held me there. Dad held Ben against the wall across from me. "Where's that Zayn boy, huh Sam?" my mom asked. "Like I would tell you." I snapped. She took out a knife and held it up to my stomach. "You could." she said. "Do what you want, I won't tell you." I replied. She raised her eyebrows and sliced my stomach, not too deep she didn't want to kill me. I screamed in pain. "You could just tell me. It will make your life a lot easier. Ben's too. He has to watch all this." she said. "You can kill me for all I care! I'm not telling you where Zayn is!" I screamed in her face, suddenly raging with anger. I have no idea how, but I threw her away from me against the wall. "You stay away from us. Anyone. All of us and I mean it. Do you understand me?" I asked. "I am your mother! You may not speak to me like this!" she yelled. "You may have given birth to me, but you will never, ever be my mother." I spat. She looked hurt after I said that. I stood up and walked over to Ben. I took his arm and pulled him away from my knocked-out dad, his punishment from Ben. Ben embraced me and held me tight. "Let's go while they are knocked out. We'll call the police later." he said and we rushed out the door. "Where's your car?" I asked. "I hid it when Mom called me." he said. "Don't call her 'Mom'. She isn't our mom. And where?" I asked. "Come on." he said and pulled me down the street. He led me through a field and trees until finally his truck was in sight. We ran to it and got inside. He started the engine and got us out of there. I showed him the way to Zayn's house and he parked out front. We ran up to the door and rang the bell. I knew Zayn was awake and nobody else was there. "Sam! Where did you go?" he yelled as he opened the door. I didn't answer I just hugged him. "I'm sorry." I whispered into his shoulder. "Shh. We'll talk later. Come inside. You must be freezing." he said and opened the door for us to enter. We showed Ben where he can sleep and he went to get ready. Zayn and I went to the kitchen. "I'm really upset you lied to me, Sam." he said. "I'm so sorry, Zayn. I couldn't get Ben any other way." I said. "And what if those idiots got you? What if I couldn't help you because I had no idea where you were?" he asked. My eyes started collecting tears and you could hear the lump in my throat. "Zayn. I'm fine, okay? I'm right here. I'm safe now." I said and laid my hand on top of his resting on the counter. "Sam. I don't lie to you. This is the second time you've lied to me. We are supposed to be a team. We're supposed to tell each other anything and be able to talk to each other about anything. You lied to me. Again." he said. "Zayn I-" I started but he cut me off. "No, Sam. I'm sorry, but I don't know if we are working out like we've always hoped. I'm sorry, but I just need some time to think." he said. And with that, he left me standing in the kitchen.
