Chapter 50 (Stratagem)
I woke up in a dark lit area. I can't remember anything accept for the attack that happened yesterday. Was it all just a dream? As I tried to move my hands, I felt as if I can't move them at all. They were bonded behind my back, so were my legs tied onto a chair. I quickly opened my eyes finding the same room I was in when I was with Justin. Though the only thing that was different was that the lights were dimmed, only showing a speck of light from a curtained windows. I could hear the sounds of my heavy breathing and the birds tweet. My neck getting warm from thinking of were I had placed myself into.
I turned my head over to the door as the doorknob began to shake, so was my fears trembling. I feel like I wanted to cry right now but I can't. I have to think positive right now but my body is so overwhelmed, that I can't. As I hear the lock of the door click, I closed my eyes tightly. I couldn't bare to see the person who would do such a thing to me. The heavy footsteps came closer and closer to me, I began to shiver. Without a sound, the lights were turned on. Letting the beam of light caress my skin and my vision grow brighter.
"Selena." A voice echoed, it sounded as if they are trying to put their voice into a whisper. But I wouldn't worry how they call out me name, that person is right in front of me.
"Selena, please open your eyes." They begged. I could hear distress in their voice. I didn't want to take risk to open my eyes and see what laid in front of me.
"Don't hurt me." I stuttered in a whisper. There was no response back, only the sound of the air condition turning on and the sounds of my heavy breathing.
"I won't, just open your eyes. I promise you, I won't hurt you." He vowed. What choice do I have, he promised he won't hurt me did he? My eyes are hurting from closing them tightly. Just one peak Sel. I opened my left eye slightly, noticing I was looking at a angle of their foot.
"That's it, open them slowly." They guided. I took a gulp of my dry saliva down my throat as I opened my right eye a bit, still looking at another angle of their foot. Without thinking, I realized that my eyes was faced down to the ground, no wonder I was put into a good position to see their perfectly good polished shoes.
"Ok Selena, look up." He ordered politely. I was overwhelmed on what's going to happen that I never knew that this was a boy I was talking to, not a boy but a man with a familiar voice. I nodded a bit, I wanted to cry but I couldn't, I have to be strong. Where is Harry when you need him. I looked up and already I could feel all my stress and problems gone.
"Justin!" I shouted as I smiled. I tried to stand up and give him a hug but I couldn't, I was still stuck to a chair. Finally I was getting rescued.
"Yup its uh me." He briefly smiled. The tone of his voice didn't seem right too me at all. My smile began to fall down to a confused look.
"Wait, I'm confused." I shook my head.
"Don't be. You did very well this year Selena." He commited. What?
"Hold on, what do you mean?" I forced myself to ask. He chuckled deeply, his eyes turning darker leaving no trace of the Justin I knew seconds ago.
"I mean you did very well on your part of the plan, my plan." He said.
"What plan are you talking about Justin." My voice getting all scratchy as my clenched my hands.
"The plan to make you mine and for Harry to be......." He began. What made me feel really scared was that he never got a chance to finish his sentence.
"For Harry to be?!" I shouted urgently. I really want to know the answer but I was already afraid that the answer that is lurking in my mind right now would be correct. He smirked.
"Well.... you already know the answer." He uttered dangerously. My mouth parted and my eyes widened.
I looked down at the piece of paper and I wrote on awhile ago back in Canada. I wonder how the lads are doing, taking care of Mom for me. I glanced at the landscape of Los Angeles, always sunny and hot out here. As we got to a rich neighbourhood, I looked down at the piece of paper with a address on it.
"Driver, this is it." I alerted him as I got my things ready. I watched as the Taxi driver parked the car in front of a lovely mansion that looked like it has been abandoned for days. That's odd. I gave the driver the money and watched him drive off. I sighed.
I took my phone out and dialed the number to the house that was particularly owned by my two best friends. As I let the phone ring, I began to think negitive as I waited for a long time for the phone to be picked up. That's odd, nobody answered. I dialed the number again but this time, I began to hear something very soft into the distance. I looked around to see nobody in the area. The sound seems to be something ringing. I looked around again but this time, something caught my eye. I continue to wait for the phone to be picked up and grabbed my suitcase as I walked closer to the mansion.
As I got to the gate, I began to squint my eyes at a nearby window. I could see the home phone from here, ringing. I inhaled and exhaled some air. As I was about to end the call, I saw something move near the stairs. I let go of my suitcase and walked cautiously closer to the window. I waited for another motion in the house to occur until somebody tapped my shoulder. I turned around alerted as I found a young boy right in front of me.
"You lost mister." He asked. He had a yellow tricycle beside him and a blue polo on. I smiled. I think he is about 8 years old.
"No, I'm just visiting somebody. Are you lost?" I questioned as I emphasize the 'you'. He giggled making me chuckle also.
"Good come back." He answered. I smiled, imagine talking to a 8 year old who knows how to respond like that.
"Hey you have dimples." He pointed out. He lifted his right arm and began to point at my cheek, poking my inner dimple. I remember when Selena use to do this. I laughed.
"Hey, no pointing." I chuckled. I haven't had a good laugh these past few days. I watched as his mouth began to part but no sound came out but the sound of a grown man voice calling out a name.
"Preston!" A voice cried out. I moved my head to the side and found a guy running towards us. He looks like my age but a bit taller then I. He has neat brown hair and blue or grey eyes to be specific. I watched him go up to the boy who I think his name is Preston and placed his hands on his shoulder.
"Lo!" Preston shouted in excitement. Lo? Is that the guy's name?
"Don't go running off like that again." The boy said. As soon as they were done talking, the boy then turned to me.
"Hey sorry about that man. Is he bothering you?" The guy asked. I shook my head no.
"No actually, he really brought my mood up today." I replied. He smiled as he ruffled Prestons hair.
"Well, he is a joker." He responded. I watched him eye my suitcase as he looked up to me again.
"You visiting somebody?" He questioned, his eyebrows furrowed lightly.
"Yeah but they might be out of town right now." I said. He nodded his head up and down lightly as his phone rang. He took his phone out and read some sort of text message before he could place his phone back into his pocket.
"Well, Preston and I got to go. By the way, the names Logan if your wondering." He said politely as he took his hand out for a hand shake.
"Nice to meet you, my name is Harry." I responded as I took my hand out and shoke his hand. The shake was firm and it felt as if he didn't want to let go but he had to. He never left his eyes off my face making me notice that his eyes left the colour blue and went over to the shade of grey. His lips coming up to a sustained smirk making me feel as if something was off.
"Harry you say....." he smirked.
