"Aiden is not my boyfriend," Vanessa said looking down her lap.
"What-?" I started, but before I could continue, Vanessa interrupted me.
"He's my little brother!" She exclaimed and put her head in her hands. I was speechless.
"Yes I know what's you're thinking. "Why am I helping my insane brother?" I don't even know! I'm a great hairdresser and I have my own salon at the age of 29!.. I don't know why I'm helping him, but no matter how insane and disturbed that boy is, he's still my baby brother and I love him!" Vanessa said wiping her eyes. I totally understand her.
"Have you ever tried to talk to him?" I asked carefully.
"Yes! I've tried everything!" She exclaimed. "I've even tried sending him to a therapist! But nothing's working! He threatened the kill me if I didn't help him get Rebecca back. I know what he has done to that girl, and I really wish I didn't. It's the most horrible things he did!" I felt tears in my eyes as I thought about all the things he could have done to her. "After our parents died he was never the same. He started drinking and taking drugs. I couldn't get through to him!" she said, starting to cry. I didn't know what to do, she was clearly hurting.
"Please don't think I was only friendly to Rebecca because of you! I don't care that she's your identical twin sister! I already love her as my best friend, even though I have only know her for about a week, and the fact that I had to act like a total bitch to her and hitting her, broke my heart to pieces! I'm really ashamed to admit that I already knew her," Vanessa said whispering in the end. I almost didn't hear her.
"WHAT?!" I exclaimed unable to control myself. Vanessa looked at me with ashamed and regret filled eyes.
"I already knew her, but she didn't know it was me. I have change the colour of my hair and I'm wearing coloured contacts. I was there when she was kidnapped by Aiden the first time-"
"The first time? It's been more than once?" I interrupted her. The question was stupid because I already knew Becca had been with Aiden at least twice. I just wanted to know if she's really speaking the truth.
"You don't know? Rebecca has been caught by Aiden three times in total. This time included." I didn't see that one coming.
"Yes can I continue now?" I nodded.
"Thanks. Like I said, I was there the first time. Rebecca was only 16 and was in a relationship with Aiden-"
"Relationship?!" I exclaimed, interrupting her. Vanessa glared at me and I shut up.
"Yes she was in a relationship with him. It wasn't a good one, though. Aiden was beating her and forcing her to do things she wasn't ready to do, you could say that he ra-raped her. That's how it all started," Vanessa finished looking guilty.
I can't believe it. I knew Rebecca was hurting but I had so idea it was this bad! She would never have told me if all this hadn't happen.
"How are we going to help her?" I asked looked down at Vanessa. She thought for a minute but then she smiled an evil smile.
"I think I have an idea," she said and whispered the plan in my ear so Aiden wouldn't be able to hear it if he was nearby.
"That a good idea!" I said and nodded to her.
"I know," Vanessa said and flipped her hair. We both laughed, not knowing what was going on in the cell just down the hall.
Don't worry, Vanessa is telling the truth. There's so trick there. Or is there? Jk no there really isn't.
I've made chapter 20, 21, and 22 in one day. I'm a little proud of myself!
