20. Captured

I walked home, lost in none existent thoughts. I had had enough. I was sick of everything... Nothing, yet everything simultaneously… I was about one minute away from my house when it happened. Suddenly, everything went black. I felt hands clutching at my waist, securing me in place, preventing me from escaping. I felt the coarse, irritating fabric of rope pulling tightly on my wrists, which were then tied together. My throat closed up, stopping me from the screaming the town down, which was just as well because they tied fabric around my mouth, so even if I could, only a muffle would escape. I felt the same hands grab me and pull me over their shoulder. I was stuck, paralysed with fright for what felt like hours even though I knew it was only a matter of minutes. My mind went blank. I just listened to the almost hypnotic rhythm of their footsteps. Without warning, the person stopped abruptly, causing me to swing backwards and forward… I felt sick, dizzy and disorientated. The person plonked me down on the floor roughly. They tore off my blind fold and mouth piece and it was… 
“What the hell do you think you’re doing?” I yelled loudly.
“I’m sorry.” He said sitting down next to me, like a child who had broken something they shouldn’t have.
“I thought you were going to kill me! Are you out of your mind? I can’t believe you!” I shouted, seething with anger, I started thrashing around, hoping for the ropes to fall off or loosen.
“This is the only way I could get you to speak to me!” 
“Really, was this the only way? Let me go, Chase!” I screamed.
“No! We’re going to talk this out! I’m not having you run off again!” He yelled, slamming his fists on the ground so hard that he indented the mud.
“You’re such an idiot!” I spat out.
“Yeah probably but we’re talking now, that’s better than before!” He said, sounding slightly pleased.
“Oh no! You’re not getting off that easily! This isn’t just going to blow over!” I shouted, less angrily this time.
“Right, I figured as much from you. I’m sure there was an easier way around this but couldn’t figure out what it was.” He said, flashing me a cheeky grin.
“Stop it!” I shouted, smiling slightly… I can never stay angry at him for long.
“Stop what?” He said, grinning at me like a cat that’d got the cream.
“Stop acting like an idiot! This is serious! This is our future!” 
“It’s a yes or no question!” 
“Some questions need some thought! Give me some reasons why I should say yes or… I’ll just… Go!” I said, losing my temper with him.
