8. Chapter-8

"Um .. where is Ella ?" It made me hold my breath as the question Jack proposed silenced all the commotion between them .
The words were spoken with utter confusion but I was in no doubt that it cleared all of those from my kidnapper's mind and some of his minions .

"What do you mean where is she ."

"She was with you a minute ago ?"

"Now is no time for joking Jack."

" Can you all just fucking shut up !"

I think the whole scene around us actually froze for a second as my kidnapper's voice bellowed over the petty chattering of his gang members . It amazes how much power he holds over each one of them , well not really but it's still a shock nonetheless . Along everything else , my actions also freeze upon hearing his words . Since there is no sound to be heard anywhere around , I try to to hold my breath as my pulse starts beating in my ears.

"O.K. , lets not make any assumptions just yet .." Jack says almost pathetically and I right now just went to do a childish thing like air-fist bump or something like that because Jack can be scared too , oh , he is scared alright .

"Yeah , I mean where can she go anyway "

"Boss , don't worry , she is probably just within the ourselves right now and is keeping mum " 
The voice that quipped couldn't be more right , I actually was within their grasp if they made the effort , I mean I barely had just jogged over to here and it wasn't even that far if I still could hear their voices .

"Hey , I think I caught her !"

"Are you fucking stupid ! I am not that bitch "
I frowned upon hearing words whoever said , I get it I am not well-liked here , but hey , I did not ask you to kidnap me in the first place .

"Fucking Enough !" My kidnapper's voice roared in the surroundings and hung there loud and clear , it was obvious that he is fed up of their pathetic arguments . After some minutes , when he was sure that no one would start again with their stupid theories , he spoke again but with much more calmness than before .

"Are these torches gonna work ?", he asked with his tone indicating nothing else than composure , which he surely have gained after roaring like a fucking raging animal just moments before .

"We can try to do something but there is no guarantee "

" Okay , see if you can get them to work , Jack and you , come here ." He ordered and I imagine that Jack and the other guy he called must have distanced themselves so as to talk privately , for as the others , they all might be trying to get those torches to work or something through trial and error .

"Anything working ? " My kidnapper asks after some minutes .

"Not really boss " A grunt is all I hear after the reply , it is a loud one I suppose , seeing I heard it even from a good distance .

"You have your cellphones ?" A murmur of 'no' erupts to answer my kidnapper's question .

"Bloody idiots! "

"Okay , let's get back , there is no use in standing here all night ." A chorus of shuffling feet sounds towards my ear and I am confused but relieved nonetheless . Confused if my kidnapper had really called off their 'task' this easily and relieved for obvious reasons . I waited till I can't no longer hear them to release the breath I had been holding . After a while , when their aura of presence no longer surrounded the forest , I started walking, still careful and with baby steps . Better be safe than sorry .

I have been walking for around fifteen when I feel like someone is watching me . Just the thought of being watched alone places a feeling of dread inside me . I look around the forest nervously to deny rather than confirm my suspicion . Nothing seems out of place so I continue on with my journey . I still can't shake off the feeling that some person or another actually is following me . I try to look around discreetly , well , as discreetly as I can , to see a mere of one clue for my paranoia but I could fine none . Hurriedly walking now , I try to be subtle about my movements, if someone is actually following me just in-case . I hear a faint sound that in no-way possible could belong to forest .

Oh , my assumption is right again , how wonderful !

I want to turn around to see .. or not see , if someone is following me but I don't , for one , it will only slow down my pace and make it easier for my stalker to catch me and second , I am just not ready to face someone presuming that I am indeed being followed .

Doubt or not , I still had to do something about my paranoiac state . So in a logical way , I thought that taking a break would be a rational decision . Think about it , I am sleep-deprived and it should be around two or more in the morning , it is only right that I rest a little.  I quickly spot a tree with thick trunk and start towards it. Sitting on the ground with my back resting on tree trunk , I huff out a breath . This place and all this kidnapping shit had really started to mess with my brain now , I can't believe that not even a week here and I had started feeling like a person with psychogenic disease . There is always a certain fear in me that someone , at any time , could jump out of nowhere , a paranoia all the time . It doesn't help that I had been cooped-up with these horrendous people for last few days .

I stood up from my position in around ten minutes and looked around just to be sure .Phew .. no one is here , well , except for me of course .I shake off some dirt and start walking normally , normally my ass , watch your step boo ! So , I wasn't exactly walking normally , yes , I was walking like a thief just waiting to be caught . Well , you can't blame me for keep a watch for myself now , can you . Alas , my peace was short-lived as I felt someone's eyes on me . I looked around but not a single clue of someone's presence could be found . Okay Ella , take deep breathes , it is nothing .

After some really strained deep breaths , I forced myself to keep walking , it was of no use ,whatever pint of energy I have , to waste in being paranoid . Slowly but surely , my pace strengthened with every step as I forced myself to get over my sluggish movements , until I was somewhat jogging . Nothing could have prepared me for what was to come in oncoming minutes . Pacing through the thick tree trunks and low branches , I was very lost in my own world .

"So you jog , yeah." A voice , almost like a whisper , sounded from beside me . I slowly turned my head , wondering if the voice was just an hallucination , all my mind's doing but the thought died as soon as it arrived . Keeping up with my pace , the kidnapper was jogging with ease as if this was a normal stroll in the park . My eyes widened and before I can help it , I cried out an yelp with much intensity than I could have mustered any other time . Shock lasted for only a fraction of second though , for him and for me too . Mine lasted a little bit less than that of my kidnapper and taking that as an advantage , I darted through the parted trees . He must be more in shock than I thought because he snapped out of it in about ten seconds , more or less , before he shouted an exasperated 'fuck' . I knew he'll be chasing me now and God knows I can't outrun him , given my almost fragile state , it was almost impossible to escape . 

I heard him before I saw him , filling me with more dread . Cocking my head to the side , I could see that he was mere four or less trees behind me and catching up quickly , might I add . I turned my head back around just in time to see a low hanging branch and dodging it with just a little edge. I knew I had to work an plan and fast, if I wanted to actually escape . This mouse and cat game had been dragged far too and I know all this 'chasing' me was just my kidnapper playing the game , enjoying it with a sadistic pleasure . Luckily for me , my kidnapper actually ran into the the branch I had just dodged , slowing him down . I quickly darted onto my left side before he opens his eyes . Slowing down my speed into a moderate pace , I managed to control my labored breathing and walked along the shadows . He had completely stopped I can tell you , no crunching sound of leaves can be heard now .

"Two can play a game , princess" I cringed at the use of nick-name and fought the urge to shout at him 'I am nobody's princess' , the deranged way he said the word , moved something inside me , it was a lick to my spine in anything but a haunting way , goosebumps arose on my neck and arms . It felt like someone creeping up on you and just for the sake of it , I nervously turned my head to asses if he actually was right behind me . He wasn't , but his words were still ricocheting around my head . I shook my head in a meek attempt to get his voice out of my head , it was futile though . With a creeping feeling of apprehension in my heart , I pushed myself for the plan . I had to escape , getting caught was not an option now , not when I finally felt the taste of total freedom , not when I had finally found an escape . The feeling I had felt, before this gang caught me earlier today , over-powered all the other feelings , it drowned all my limbs with a sense of liberty and overwhelmed my nervous system , enchanting me with an unpredicted calm . I , in my coming life , will never take the sense of liberty and freedom granted , not when I had so closely felt the loss of it .

I saw an group of oak trees and it felt like an blessing from above . Their branches were literally sprawled on the ground and made a perfect place for my hiding . I chose a tree from the far-right corner , after all , the center would be quite an easy guess . I was so sure that he had been somewhere lost in the forest , the forest really is dense , but I could not have been more wrong .

"Aw princess , come out now , you know you won't last long" His voice was near than expected and I nearly yelped if not for my palm against the mouth . He is in the circle of oak trees , oh God ! I can try to run but that would only give away my place of hiding . Moreover , who guarantees that his minion are not around , I mean , I haven't heard or seen anyone yet but still . My eyes were frantic as I searched for him in my surroundings but I couldn't find any hint to give away his position , even when I crouched and looked around on both side of my near-by trees .

"Seems like you won the game ,aye!" After several minutes of his last shout , he made this announcement . He was bloody mocking me , that bastard ! I sucked in a deep breath , even after his punishment and many of his glarings , my stubborn nature and pride were still intact and it was hard for me to just let him mock me . It was quiet after the words were spoken , a little too quiet in my opinion and I wondered if he had quit this quest. It didn't take a genius to guess that he had not actually ended the task but rather was following a old trick . Ha ! but I wasn't falling for the old one , it is really over-used in psycho-drama  movies . I stilled my body as stiff as I can and for much long I can manage , when in following minutes , no doubtful activity happened , I mumbled a 'thank God' with a staggering sigh.

Mistake .

"Heya , princess ! " The tone he used was awfully cheery and mocking . Oh , definitely mocking ! My cry of surprise disrupted the entire forest as it cut through our surroundings , damaging the perfect silence which had settled after his departure from here . What was more chilling is that he laughed at my reaction , he laughed ! That sardonic laugh of his that can give any psychopath complex. My ears were wide in ear and my my pulse was thrumming in my ears . I looked around my self for an possible escape but my kidnapper , who was seemingly watching me closely, put his arms on both sides of me , effortlessly trapping me .

"Aw Princess , don't be cold to me " He said in a fake hurt voice , pouting a little just to put on a edge . I kept my mouth shut , I didn't need to aggravate him further if I can't escape from here now .Not getting bothered from his intense stare , I turned my head right to stare into the undefined depth of the forest , apparently he didn't like my nonchalant behavior .

"Answer me " His voice boomed all around me and I cringed a little despite my best efforts . Even though my heart was beating with rapid pace , I put on a cool facade , I can't let him see my fear , leeches like him feed on it after all . I kept staring at him for a long time with not one expression crossing my face , I just hope my eyes were not showing my frantic inside .

"Well ?" He prompted .

"You haven't asked me a question " I said with nonchalance , praying that my voice wouldn't crack mid-sentence . I could tell that my answer wasn't the one he expected but he was still amused with it though , because one end of his lips turned up into that stupid smirk of his .

"Oh , I see , putting on a brave heart , yeah" He says in a amused tone ,darkly .

"But darling , it is of no use..." I get the feeling that he meant 'pain in the ass' by 'darling'

"You know why ?" I knew he would have continued even if I don't answer , so I didn't .

"Because I know how you are , a pathetic little bitch ."

"No one wants you know , why do you think there has been only one news reported of you being missing"

"I'll tell you why , because no one bloody misses , if anything , they are grateful that you are gone from their lives " I know what he is saying is total and utter bullshit but that doesn't stop the words from hurting me . He is just saying all these things to make me lose hope , to make me feel dejected and the worst part is , he is succeeding , he is making me feel vulnerable with his every word and the way he says them with so much conviction only lead me to believe likewise .

"I saw that video-clip too the other day " I know he is mentioning the video-clip of my mother , my father and my brother in the hospital , the memory makes pin stab behind my eyes but I refuse to let him see that he got to me with his stupid made-up things ...yet .

"I saw how they were a complete family ...without you ." He should have stopped him , I should have but I didn't , I couldn't .

"You know , it is rather weird how none of them were crying , well of course except your mother , a mother is a mother after-all but your dad and your brother looked like they can't be bothered to give two shits about your kidnapping , weird right !" His words were slowly biting away any lost pieces of hope that were left in my heart . I felt so stupid and insignificant at the moment for I knew that he was telling lies but I still couldn't stop them to get to me , even though I knew these words were fabrication of truth but I was still allowing them to hurt me and leaving me vulnerable . I couldn't keep looking at his face , maintaining eye contact when my eyes started to sting but I resisted the pain , I resisted the hurt , I couldn't let him get to me .

"We both know you are lying , so please do me a favor and shut up" I coughed a little towards the end to cover my obvious cracking of voice .

"Oh , am I now ?" He asked with an eyebrow raised at me in amusement .

"Yeah , you are , you can try all you want , but I know the truth , your shitty lies won't make a different " My voice came out more confident than the chaos I felt inside.

"Hmm , that is what you think " He said smoothly through his teeth .

"Why do you think nobody had found you yet ?"

"Well , it surely will take them some time to find me " I scoffed a little to feign nonchalant .

"You actually have a point for one but ..." I waited for him to continue his sentence because he was taking longer than necessary , I assume for the dramatic effect .

"How can you explain that news of you being missing has been reported only once  ?" My stance of defiant posture immediately slumped at his question because I haven't thought about it once,  they are surely reporting about my kidnapping right,  I mean my dad is a known person.

''You don't have any answer for it, princess! '' I knew he was mocking me but what could I possibly say to him when my whole mind is jumbled up from his previous words.

''Not so mouthy, are you now ?'' I wanted to hurt him,  be it physically or mentally but I couldn't,  he can physically over -power me easily and I didn't knew any of his emotional weaknesses,  he didn't look like a man who had one anyway.  Instead I turned my head , just a bit, to hide my insecurities and tears, which is most possibly the stupidest thing I could have done at the moment.

The second I turned my head,  my face came into a forced contact with a cloth, which I'm sure was filed with chemicals. The shock at the sudden action drove me to take in a sharp breath and my mind started getting foggy within seconds. My eyelids dipped lower and my eyesight became hazy. I knew I was going to faint soon but too tired and exhausted to fight the urge , I let myself drown in the blissful oblivion of the drowsy chemicals.

''Stupid bitch'' I heard my kidnapper snicker and that is the moment my mind shuts down.
Shorter than usual , but please bear with me . Please , please , please.... give me feedback , in dire need here !
