Isaac roughly grips my wrist as he shoves me closer to the door. His dry, masculine hands are no match for mine. I don't understand why I am trying to get away. I'm screwed anyway.
So I just stop. I go limp. "Just hurry up. Take me. Get this over with," I cry, biting my lip to hold back tears. He slowly pulls the door open, the cool air from outside hitting my face.
I have a feeling in my gut though. Someone is here. Someone is here to get me.
He leads me blindly through the dark for a few steps before I hear another pair of feet hitting the gravel. My head jerks to the side as I am shoved from Isaac's hands and I land on the ground with a thud. My hands are scraped.
I see the doorknob turning and I quickly bolt to the side, footsteps veering towards Isaac's van. As he drags her farther into the blackness I lunge towards them, knocking Isaac off his feet, Leah flying onto the gravel. She winces in pain as she lands onto her bottom, scraping her hands and she tries to stop the impact. I can tell she is still not aware of what is going on. Isaac begins to stand up again, fumbling with a Swiss army knife, and he jolts towards me, piercing my skin with the blade. My arm begins to bleed but I shove him back, pinning him to the ground. "Leave Leah alone, and get out of all of our lives," I spit, landing a blow to his nose. A crackling sound leaves a grin on my face as blood gushes from his nostrils. "That's right. Pretty boy knows how to fight, you bastard," I laugh menacingly as I tie his hands behind his back, leaving him struggling on the ground. I peer over at Leah, her mascara speeding down her face, tears dribbling off of her chin. "Leah, Leah stop crying, it's okay, you're safe," I say, pulling her towards me, and embracing her in a hug. I stroke her hair, finally feeling her warmth again.
I lay in my hospital bed, my eye covered, and I am so excited to be able to see again, soon. I will be able to remove the bandages in 48 hours. I can see Noah. I can see Leah. My beautiful babies. I am confused though, where are the boys? Where is Leah? Why isn't Noah here? Did something... bad... happen?
