The shouts and the gun shots got more frequent. Richard stood up worried and paced the room.
"Something gone wrong in your plan rich?" I smirked at him, he turned with anger and fustrationn bolting out of his eyes, he raised his hand and before i knew it he hit me so hard in the face that my chair fell on its side causing me to bang my head on the wooden floor. My head was throbbing in pain like it had been hit by a train. He crouched down and caressed my cheek but when he took his hand away he had blood on his hand, obviously my face was bleeding.
"Did you forget what in capable of Annie? , remember what happened to your mother" he smirked an pulled my chair so I was sitting up right, the gun shots were getting louder until they were just outside the door.
"Show time " Richard joked before he untied my hands and grabbing me from behind , I saw this as a chance to escape so I elbowed him and kicked him before shouting for help and running to the door,but it was locked. I began to bang on the door for my life shouting and screaming for help,a hand wrapped round My mouth and a gun was right next to my head.
"Step away from the door and shut up" Richard warned. I followed his instructions, just then the door got kicked off the hinges and in came Sam , Jake and some others , Sam had. Blood stained t-shirt just like the rest as he held a gun in his hand.
"Nice of you to join us gentlemen" joked Richard . I could feel the gun right next to my head an I was terrified, i was trembling in fear and tears began to run down my face mix in with the blood that ran down my face too.
"Let her go you prick" said Sam through gritted teeth.
"Well that's something I can't do ,you see its only fair that I finished the job I started years ago" . I looked around for anything that could help me escape, that's when I looked to Richards belt, there was a sharp long blade loosely tied . When I was younger I would pretend to be a street thief and steal my parents belongings from their pockets without them knowing , I knew it was a weird fantasy but i always thought it might come in handy for some reason and I guess now is a good idea.
Richard was still teasing Sam , so that was my distraction, I reached the knief from the side of his belt and before he could notice I stabbed into his side, I turned, grabbed the gun and pointed it at him , stepping back towards Sam. Blood was gushing from his side through his fingers to the floorboards.
"You see Richard, I always knew who you were, I spent my life trying to get away from what happened but I know I never could if you were still alive" I spat at him. He looked at me with sorrow in his eyes but I exchanged him with hatred. I pointed the gun right at him in my trembling hand and pulled the trigger, looking away because I couldn't bear to see this even in spite of what he's done. I dropped the gun and faced Sam before bursting into tears and dropping into his arms.
----3 days later----
I stood at the bridge watching the water rushing through.
"Hey" said a deep husky voice from behind me. I turned and smiled at Sam, his arm was in a sling and had a couple of cuts here and there . After the events Sam's guys took care of the bodies,I asked what he meant but he just says that I wouldn't want to know. He came and stood next to me putting his hand on top of mine.
"How are you feeling?" He asked.
"As good as you can be when you have a black eye and huge scar down your face" I joked making us both chuckle.
"You still look beautiful though" . I blushed and faced him raising my eyebrows giving him the 'seriously?' Face. He laughed and pulled me close to him by my waist.I looked up at his shining eyes as he looked down at me, he began to close his eyes and lean in so I did the same his lips landed on mine sending vibes all over my body, we pulled away but still looked at each other.
"I love you Annie , I won't let anyone touch you again" his eyes were full of shame and promise. I smiled and nodded at him .
"I love you too Sam" I replied as I stroked the side of his face. I wanted to forget everything else and just focus on the one moment, If I could keep any memory and relive it , it would be that one because I knew that now I didn't have to worry about the past catching me ,I had Sam and that's all I needed and wanted.
